Prophetic Scripture Update #2: Ezekiel 38 – Gog, Magog tensions on the Golan

Developments over the weekend in Iranian and Russian activity behind the Hezbollah’s preparations to launch an attack against Israel’s northern borders with Lebanon and Syria, together with Israel’s strikes against sophisticated weapons factories and arsenals there, are building up to such an extent that Israel is now on military alert.

Yesterday’s sequential headlines on Koenig’s World Watch Daily read as follows:

  • Israel-Syria clash: with missile fire Assad is changing rules of the game
  • How Russia is turning Syria into a major naval base for nuclear warships
  • Syrian UN envoy: Putin sent messages to Israel its freedom to act in Syria is over
  • Syrian president Assad: we’re counting on Russia to prevent a conflict with Israel
  • ‘Hezbollah is preparing for war’.

Finer details may be read in Debkafile ‘exclusive reports’, which include intelligence on Iran’s involvement at top military level:

  • Israeli-Russian clash over Hizbollah’s Golan grab
  • Israeli drone crashes. Russia fails to de-escalate.
Ezekiel: Gog & Magog

The Gog and Magog war against Israel is described in chapters 38 and 39 of the Book of Ezekiel. The prophet received a word from the Lord to ‘set his face’ against Gog, leader of a coalition of evil nations north of Israel and which include Persia/Iran. Most Bible scholars regard those named peoples as coming from the land between and north of the Black and Caspian Seas. ie modern Russia. The Lord  has a purpose for this battle, viz:

“So I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel. I will not let them profane My name anymore – Then the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.” (Ezek 38:7 NKJV)

This battle also features in Revelation 20:7-10 as precursor to the battle of Armageddon and satan’s doom in the fiery lake.

Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.  Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that HER INIQUITY IS PARDONED: for SHE HATH RECEIVED OF THE LORD’S HAND DOUBLE FOR ALL HER SINS.  The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, “Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God”.  Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:  And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it”  (Is40:1-5KJV)

Night and day: President Trump warmly welcomes Israel’s leader – the contrast with the Obama years couldn’t be more vivid. (Joel Rosenberg on the “two-state solution” and other issues discussed.)

In this connection I’ve yet to blog about Netanyahu’s 2016 Christmas message to Christians relating to Romans 11

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

trump-bibi-whpence-netanyahu(Central Israel) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been warmly greeted and embraced this week by President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and by the Congressional leadership of both parties.

As I told Laura Ingraham on her radio show today, the contrast between what we’re seeing unfold with the Obama years could not be more vivid — “it’s night and day.”

Understandably, the five critical questions I raised on this blog yesterday remain to be answered. It will take some time for the Trump team to define its Mideast policies in all these key areas in granular detail, and for Trump and Netanyahu to come to agreement on how best to work together vis-à-vis Iran, ISIS, the Palestinians, and the extraordinary open door that currently exists with moderate Sunni Arab regimes in the region.

But one thing is crystal clear: U.S.-Israeli relations are stronger and healthier than they have ever been. May our enemies take notice.

A few observations on the dramatic last…

Today’s news: Israel’s PM Netanyahu meets British PM May

Received in the last hour from International Christian Embassy Jerusalem this video of a brief press conference at No 10.:

Note Mrs Theresa May’s particular pleasure at welcoming Benjamin Netanyahu,

“Prime Minister, I’m very pleased to welcome you here to Number 10 Downing Street, particularly and obviously in the year in which we recognise the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration – the UK remains a very strong friend of Israel…”

[Updates at: World Watch Daily]

As the ICEJ points out it was only on Saturday that a former official of Iran’s elite military leadership, the IRGC, bragged about attacking Israel (ie. Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps). The statement came amidst a large-scale test of Iran’s missiles and radar systems which was conducted in defiance of a stark warning from the US that such activities violate UN Security Council resolutions and would not be tolerated.

Invisible HandIt was watching that forces’ rehearsal in mid-1980s of storming Jerusalem that I was introduced (as a non-Christian) to the reality and accuracy of Bible prophecy!

Moreover, similar units of the Iraqi army were also involved AND at the height of the Iran-Iraq war – ie. whilst enemies!

ALSO, whilst a video of their combined manoeuvres was being broadcast in that BBC documentary it so happened I was thumbing through a secular book I’d been given that explained the whole background, as outlined in Welcome and Bio. Hence my keeping an eye on Iran.

John Kilpatrick: Midnight Words for 2017 and Beyond

Clock from 4Signposts

Readers will recall the 20 prophetic words Revd John Kilpatrick was given over Christmas 2015 for 2016 and beyond, especially the awesome prediction of nations being “shaken” and kingdoms “jolted”, as happened last year across Europe and the United States! (See Fulfilled Prophecies #7.)

In his Sunday service on Inauguration weekend John remarked about the powerful wake-up call he’d received that necessitated furiously writing down all he was given. Here is the published version that he delivered last Sunday. Those annotated <NB> I will cover in an another post, but you may know the word about Jordan is especially pertinent in view of King Abdullah’s visit this week to the White House, as reported in World Watch Daily.

A MIDNIGHT INTERRUPTION

JohnK 214_logoOne night this week, I went to bed at 9:00pm, which is very unusual for me. I was very tired from traveling and a busy schedule. I was awakened by the Spirit of the Lord speaking with a strong expression, and He said…

“At midnight, a cry was made, ‘Behold the Bridegroom comes, go out to meet him.’ Then they arose, both the wise and the foolish. They awoke from slumber.”

I sat straight up in my bed and looked at my digital clock. It read 12:00 midnight!

It was a very sobering moment for me.  Holy Spirit revealed to me that His people have indeed awakened from slumber! Many things were weighed in the balances, but the people of God rose up, and God heard their cry.

2017words-john-kilpatrick-ministries

The Lord says,

“Therefore, I have set before My people open doors—not just a door, but  many  doors. I am opening doors of opportunity that have not been opened to you before. Because there has been a great change of heart, I have hastened to answer. Many have awakened, but they have not arisen. My word now is, ‘Arise!’ Do not return to slumber as in times past, because there will be many opportunities that I am opening to this nation, and very effectual doors that I am opening to My Church. These doors will lead to greater resources than you have known. It is important not to be timid, intimidated or fearful. This is not one of the four seasons I have established in the earth, but this is a special season. It is a time of My choosing. As the men of Issachar had understanding of the times to know what to do, so I will give you that very same insight if you will ask of me. I will direct you and show you.”

CLOSED SOCIETIES ARE GOING TO OPEN

“Remember Naomi of old. After a painful season of loss, heartbreak and heartache, she heard I was visiting My people and that bread was readily available. She heard this news in a bleak place, a forsaken place, filled with reversal and hopelessness. Upon the report of fresh visitation, she arose and stirred herself. She left the desolate place and came to Judah. My people have been desolated and have suffered. I am going to cause the news of a fresh visitation to spread quickly—God is visiting His people once again!

“The thing that will mark this move of My Spirit to distinguish it from all others is that I am going to move mightily in closed nations and closed societies. The word of spiritual bread among these starving and closed nations will create spiritual refugees, which will immediately create movement of entire nations of hungry and spiritually starving refugees toward the outstations of fresh bread.

“My Spirit will spread like a fire through empires, dynasties, tribes, clans, and among the
heathen as well. I will set My table before them, and they will taste of My goodness and
experience My mercy just as Naomi arose and brought her daughter-in-law, Ruth, to the place of visitation. It was there that Ruth was joined with Boaz, her redeemer.

“I tell you, many will believe this good news to be a rumor, but they will continue to hear the reports until they will come and see for themselves the wonders of the Lord. It will cause a great stir among the nations.

“I am going to open three doors:

  1. I am going to unseat powers and principalities in those regions that have long deprived the people of My presence and of My Spirit. A brief, but widespread harvest will occur. A once closed society of unbelievers will now have the opportunity to hear and to believe upon the Lord Jesus.
  2. There will also be a movement of laborers, those that I have chosen and
    called to work the fields of harvest. This is their time. This is what they have
    awaited, many since childhood. This is their time. They will bring their sickles
    and reaping tools, and they shall come rejoicing, bringing their sheaves with
    them during this harvest. There will be great excitement!
  3. There will also be a great commotion of the leaders of the harvest taking
    their places. They shall direct the harvest and place the laborers where they
    best fit. They are My apostolic leaders overseeing this last day harvest. They
    will know the mind of the Spirit. They will know who is to go where, and who
    is to do what. There will be resources and wealth to fund the harvest of the
    ages. The newcomer and the veteran soul winner will be paid the same wage
    in that day.”

This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes. In that day, the knowledge
of the glory of the Lord shall fill the earth as the waters cover the sea.”

MINISTRY MADE EASY

In the day of harvest, although brief, it will be said that it has never been so easy to preach, pray or prophesy. There will be no toil in leading the heathen to the wells of living water. The sick will be released. The bound will be easily delivered, and the lost will readily comprehend the way. This Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, and then the end shall come…Even so, Lord Jesus!

THE JEWS’ DAY OF VISITATION  <NB>

Most importantly, there will be a long awaited harvest that will begin in the land of Israel. The light of salvation will shine upon the Jews. As God reveals His love for His people through a chain of miraculous deliverances, the house of Israel will begin to see Jehovah’s salvation in a new light through Jesus’ shed blood. This will surely be the beginning; but full salvation shall come at a later appointed time for the Jewish people alone, and Israel shall experience a rebirth in one day.

MUSLIMS WILL RECEIVE THE MESSAGE  <NB>

Because the Lord is no respecter of persons, a GREAT shaking is coming to the Muslim nations. It will be sudden! It will be an unexpected and unexplained shaking that will redefine many Muslim nations and their leadership structures. The Lord is now in the process of shaking institutions, cultures, dialects, nationalities, governments, political structures and their frameworks, which men have trusted through generations. Many of them will be so shaken they cannot survive the shaking. Holy Spirit will even destabilize power structures, and many of those things that men have relied upon will ultimately fail. Truth will grip men’s hearts like a vice, even the unbelievers’ hearts and the hearts of the heathen. Ears will be opened to hear, even the ears of the unregenerates.

WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE

RESTLESS FOR A REASON

You are in ministry, and you are restless where you are. You have reached a place where you have peaked in your vision and capacity. That is all right because God is opening a door for you by the month of July, and you will walk through that door. This door will stretch you — stretch your mind and stretch your confidence. You will be forced to change your mind about things, which you need to change your mind about. As a matter of fact, you will feel overwhelmed, not really knowing if you can do this. Indeed, it is an open door Holy Spirit has opened, which He could not have offered you until now because your frustration has peaked. You are now in holy desperation, and Holy Spirit will use that to remove you, so He can move you through this open door.

SISTER BLESSINGS

God has promised to open your womb, yet you are desperate and discouraged. With God, all things are possible. God opened Leah’s womb and blessed her, as He will open your womb and bless you. He will also bless your sister who cannot have children. He will remember her and give her the desire of her heart as well.

CLEANSING THE BLOODLINE 

Blindness has plagued your large biological family, and generational curses have plagued your bloodline; but Holy Spirit is now removing the blindness because of your prayers, and they will see of the goodness of God for the very first time. It will remove the questions of past and present generations. God has heard and answered. Revelation will penetrate them, and they will see and understand. Great freedom and ministry will come upon this family bloodline that was once considered almost beyond hope.

“I now have servants poised that I will use to break the entrenched lies and remove
the scales from their eyes as Ananias did from Saul of Tarsus. This will not be a single
person that will be freed, but an entire family. I, the Lord, already have plans to use
them to set many other captives free. These captives will receive ministry by those
who were once bound as they were bound. This will be the doings of the Lord, and
none will be able to resist or stop it.”

SHY SEERS AND INTIMIDATED PROPHETS

You have been frustrated and have felt rejected and left out—you have felt like a misfit, but because of the integrity and goodness of your heart and your unwavering love for truth, Holy Spirit is now opening to you visions, interpretation of dreams and even words of knowledge. Each time, as you release them, it will expand you, and you will become more and more comfortable with this gift; whereas before, you halted and had faltering confidence.

“I am going to open your eyes as Elisha’s servant, Gehazi, had his eyes opened to My
world of glory and power. You will become bolder and bolder and will not retreat again to the intimidation of the past. This will be very easy, so easy that you will not struggle with the transformation. It will be as though you were always this free. If you believe, you will see! Confirm yourself to yourself. Do not speak doubt to yourself any longer. The doubt delays your usefulness among My people.”

SILENT TREATMENT

Satan has attempted to still your voice. He has tried to destroy your ability to speak. You have been greatly alarmed at the loss of your ability to communicate by both word and song. It seemed as though you would lose vocal communication.

“I have already prepared those, which I will use to restore not only your voice, but also the air flow you need in order to be heard and have the success you have been destined to have. Do not fear things as they are, but rejoice that I have reached you with this sure word of deliverance. Your voice shall be heard again!”

STAY WHERE YOU ARE 

Your temptation is to go down to Egypt. You desperately want to depart, but you must realize that your increase will come by staying where you are. For Isaac, the hundredfold increase was found upon the famine of yesterday. The boughs of the trees will once again be found with blooms, and the corn that wilted and wasted in the fields shall surge to life with bountiful supply.

“Do not think famine, or talk famine. Lift up your eyes so that you may experience the plenty, for the plenty shall indeed replace famine. For right where you are is right where I have placed you, and that is where you will flourish—not in Egypt. BE STILL!”

YOUR INVESTMENT IS NOT IN VAIN

You suffered the loss of an investment that you have poured into, but the Lord is not
talking here today of a financial investment. He is speaking this word to you. You have invested in someone. That someone has been proud against the Lord and had a negative change of attitude. They have forgotten their roots and have violated your confidence and your dependence upon them.

“Be aware that I am also aware. I see, and I know. You are not to fret or forget that what I have promised I will perform. Your heart shall rejoice again. These matters are in My hands.”

MISDIRECTED GRIEF 

“You have been grieving over someone that I have deliberately removed from your life. You could not see what I could see, nor could you hear what I was hearing. How long will you grieve over Saul? I have a David, and he will do all My counsel. He will do all that I have commanded. All you have known was Saul. When you see David, do not laugh, for he will not be what you expected; but he will be what I have directed. How long will you grieve? I am admonishing you this day to lift your eyes past the present grief and simply believe! This one that I have chosen for you is far different from what you would expect, but he has the heart, the skill and the ability to grow with you. He will protect your interests and hold up your hands in the day of battle. Prepare your mind now to not look for the things you are used to looking for, or you will miss him. My anointing is already on him for this season.”

LAND TRANSFER

A tract of land is going to come into your possession. It will be a gift. The possibilities will be limitless, but Holy Spirit says He will give you direction upon possession of it. You were not even expecting it, but this word will make much more sense to you by October.

A CONFUSED SON 

You are a pastor and an effective minister. You and your wife are grieved and burdened for a son that is showing signs of gender confusion. This son is uniquely talented and extremely gifted, but a seed of deception was sown into him early. This confusion has produced a wrong perception of who he is, as well as his destiny. The Lord would have you know that he will pull through this, and your worry and uncertainty will not continue. There is one coming into his life who will be the source Holy Spirit uses to bring him into alignment with his identity. It will be the exact right time, and the exact one I have sent, to bring truth and healing to him. It will settle him, and thereby, settle you and your wife in the process.

“I have My hand upon him, and you know that I do. I have proved Myself to you many
times. This will take some time, but in time you will see My faithfulness.”

LOVE NEVER FAILS

“Just because the marriage failed does not mean that you are a failure. It simply means it failed. My plan for you did not fail when your marriage did. I know your heart, and I know the way you have chosen. It is the way of honor and kindness. You have preserved your dignity as well as your husband’s. Love covers a multitude of sin. Look forward, there is love awaiting you once again. I will remember you in that day, and you will recall this word to you. It will bring peace and hope to you!”

FAR AWAY PLACES

“You would never have chosen to relocate so very far away. You would never have
chosen that country to rebuild your life, but it, indeed, is the door I am opening. You have not even considered this opportunity because it had not presented itself to you. These people will become your people, and you will be a defender. Your gifting will be a wall to which they cling. You will never have this opportunity where you reside now. I will give you a heart for them. You will find much love and acceptance. You will know this opportunity, for it will present itself in the eighth month, the month of August—a time of new beginnings for you.”

MISTAKEN OPPORTUNITY

You have come into a large sum of money, and it is indeed a blessing from the Lord. However, you are going to be confronted with what seems to be a great opportunity for investment, but it is not an opportunity.

“It is a distraction. You must listen to My Holy Spirit. Hold fast to what you have. Do not be anxious. Do not be impetuous. I will guide you with My eye, and you will have great peace, which you presently do not have.”

A SANCTUARY COUNTRY <NB>

I keep hearing from the Lord, “Jordan, the land bordering Israel.”

Jordan shall be visited. It will endure a shaking, but it shall, unexpectedly, become a
sanctuary country. Jordan, you will be remembered by the Lord, and you will be an
important instrument in His hand. Remember, you will become a sanctuary country!

SMOOTH OPERATOR

You have been so lonely and even insecure regarding your future. Recently, someone
has entered your space, and it certainly has boosted your hope and self-confidence.
There has been limited contact, and you desire a deeper relationship. This is a word
of caution from Holy Spirit because of His love for you and the prayers of many who love you. This word is a confirming word to you for you have already begun to feel uneasy and question the relationship. If you pursue this relationship, it will be as though you are embracing a snake. The poison from this union will affect you, your well being, as well as destroy the relationship with your family that you love and cherish in your life. It will be an embarrassing mistake. He has covert intentions. Temptation is usually connected to serpents.

“So be aware, I have chosen a compatible companion for you. Wait on the Lord.”

WEAVING A WEB

I see a pastor’s chair on a church platform, and underneath his chair, is a series of webs. Someone, or some consolidated effort, seeks to spin things against the man of God. You have a very strong anointing, and for some time, you have been sensing this drag upon your ministry. You will not be surprised when you learn the details, and you will learn them. So be prepared.

“I will bring it to light, and they will be exposed, says the Lord, and you will more than prevail. I am giving you and your wife a new network of friends that I will bring to you, including effective and insightful intercessors to pull the webs apart before they have an opportunity to establish their deceit and confusion again. Do not be moved by what you learn. It is already coming to naught, and you will triumph over it all.”

TRUMP AND HIS GENERALS <NB>

As I was riding along the highway last Thursday evening, I was engaged in conversation by cellphone with my administrator regarding budget matters. While I was listening to her answer a question, I heard Holy Spirit interrupt and ask, “How do you spell Truman?” I thought for a brief moment, and I said, “T-R-U-M-A-N.”

Then He asked me, “How do you spell Trump?” I said, “T-R-U-M-P.”

I immediately made the connection. He then proceeded to ask me, “Who did President Truman lean on to help the Jews get back into the Holy Land?” I said, “General Eisenhower.” The Lord then said to me, “I have raised up Trump and have given him generals to lean on to help him defend the Jews and keep them in their land. General Eisenhower brought them in, and these contemporary generals will keep them there. What was, will be again.”

He then asked me, “How do you spell Truth?” I spelled it, “T-R-U-T-H.”

The Lord said that He is changing the appetites of people. Instead of rejoicing in rumors and lies, the people will now become excited to hear truth again. They will love the truth and reject the lies, as well as the liars. This will not be true of everyone in every place; but a shift has already happened, and it happened last week.

“Truth had fallen in the streets, but I am lifting it up again; and it shall cause great rejoicing. I, the Lord, have done this by My own power, by My right arm of might and by My justice.”

Fulfilled Prophecies #16: “The Redcoats are coming, the British are coming!” – We’re here!

“The Redcoats are coming! The British are coming! THE BRITISH ARE COMING…the British are coming!”

Thus closed the word Lydia Stanley Marrow delivered under the Lord’s anointing during Shake The Nations’ team introductions at Legacy 2016 in Peterborough on 3 August, as reported in Map-vision and Word: Epicenters of Rivers of God’s Glory in Britain.

TODAY WE ARE COMING TO THE VERY HEART OF REVOLUTIONARY AMERICA!

Prime Minister Theresa May begins her visit within a week of the inauguration of Donald Trump as 45th President of the United States. She will be the first overseas leader to meet him for talks tomorrow in the White House. (Am looking forward to Bill Koenig’s Eye-View report from there.)

BUT FIRST, the British Prime Minister and her entourage are heading straight to the head-quarters, if not official capital, of our colonies during the American Revolutionary War – Philadelphia. The then largest city hosted the First Continental Congress, before the war, and the Second Continental Congress, which signed the Declaration of Independence.

It is there, our Prime Minister will address the annual congressional Republican Retreat and, according to the Telegraph, say the UK and USA will “renew the special relationship” now that President Trump is in the White House. She will say Britain and America can “rediscover our confidence” and “lead together again” in the wake of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump.

FIRST AND FOREMOST in these meetings is the vital fact mainstream media will ignore: BOTH Theresa May and Donald Trump understand the importance of, and are strongly supportive of, the Jewish nation of Israel.  Our two nations will thus become blessed by the Almighty, as He promised Abraham and his descendants – “I will bless those who bless you and I will curse him who curses you, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed”.

This weekend is, therefore, of exceptional significance not only in terms of geopolitical history but also of Biblical history and what the Lord is doing!

Pray it marks the early signs of manifestation of the rest of the prophecy and eventually bearing fruit. Or, as in some prophetical delivery, performing a physical action as part of declaring its truth.

A strong indication of the above prophetic word moving out of its dormancy came a few months later upon seeing this prophetic photo of Mrs May at the G20 Conference. She had met Barack Obama and was standing on his podium, which he had left. I sensed in my spirit this itself was prophetic of him not only vacating his presidential office but also getting out of the way and being replaced by a person of a completely different spirit – thereby enabling fulfillment of the prophecy Lydia brought! (Fulfilled Prophecies #12 refers.)

Personal Note

Have you ever received a personal word of prophecy or been with someone moving in the prophetical gifting, perhaps recognised as operating in the office of prophet? As well as weighing and testing such words or visions, it’s wise to put them in a ‘pending tray’ to await subsequent confirmation by others of prophetical gifting, or for the actual fulfillment of the prophecy.  When such an eventually proves it true we realise what a privilege it was to have witnessed the delivery of the original word or vision. Such was the case for what Dr Sharon Stone brought in 2012, and our nations’ role in its fulfillment (see recent FP #15).

Yet it was even more so when we heard Lydia!  We got exciting confirmation of what Nina had seen at the start of Trooping the Coloura text of the Lord’s heart for our nation! You can see our front-row reactions during Lydia’s delivery:

The trap in the ground, and the trumpet in the sky

Very perceptive points from Jo that are well-worth pondering, especially on the sounds heard over Jerusalem!

The Kingdom

richter-scale“Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?” The King asked by way of reply to my question about the shaking New Zealand has been experiencing.

I keep an eye on signs.  I discern things.  That’s my gift.  Not that I always get it right.  I check what I see with the Bible. And I ask God questions.

“Are the earthquakes we’ve been experiencing since 2011 about sin?” I asked doubtfully.

The day before the Kaikoura earthquake Brian Tamaki, the self-appointed bishop of Destiny Church said, “the earth convulses under the weight of certain human sin … Massive earthquakes have already hit in Christchurch and you could have just about predicted that one.”  The next day he was a  prophet in big trouble with the gay community who didn’t like what he said.

Well, he detected something, but he was off target.  We’ve always had sin.  It’s…

11 numbers linking Israel and Donald Trump in 2017

We heard Revd John Kilpatrick quoting from this fascinating data collected by Michael Snyder and published by CharismaNews. I’m most grateful to publisher and author. Note Michael’s reference to number 50 for I’d noticed Dr Sharon Stone’s prophecy on 3rd Nov 2012 on national identity was echoed 50 months later by Donald Trump during interview, as blogged in Fulfilled Prophecies #15.:

Is 2017 going to be the most important year we have seen in a very, very long time?

Because of the work I do, I am constantly immersed in research, and lately I keep coming across very strange “coincidences” regarding the year 2017. The numbers I am about to share with you certainly appear to be quite remarkable, but there will be many out there who will question their significance.

To the naysayers, I would suggest that from the very beginning, God has always put a lot of emphasis on numbers. For example, He created the world in precisely seven days, and on the seventh day He rested. Throughout Scripture, we see certain numbers showing up over and over again, and God has a purpose in that. So please keep this in mind as you consider the following 11 numbers that connect the year 2017, Israel and Donald Trump.

1. On Nov. 29, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution that called for the creation of a Jewish state as part of an overall partition plan for the Middle Eastern territory that was occupied by Great Britain at that time. 2017 will mark the 70th anniversary of that agreement, and many believe that this will turn out to be quite significant. If you are not familiar with this U.N. resolution, here is some info on it from Wikipedia:

The United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine was a proposal by the United Nations, which recommended a partition of mandatory Palestine at the end of the British Mandate. On 29 November 1947, the U.N. General Assembly adopted the plan as Resolution 181(II).[2]

The resolution recommended the creation of independent Arab and Jewish States and a special international regime for the city of Jerusalem. The Partition Plan, a four-part document attached to the resolution, provided for the termination of the Mandate, the progressive withdrawal of British armed forces and the delineation of boundaries between the two states and Jerusalem. Part I of the plan stipulated that the Mandate would be terminated as soon as possible and the United Kingdom would withdraw no later than Aug. 1, 1948. The new states would come into existence two months after the withdrawal, but no later than Oct. 1, 1948. The plan sought to address the conflicting objectives and claims of two competing movements, Palestinian nationalism and Jewish nationalism, or Zionism.[3][4] The plan also called for economic union between the proposed states and for the protection of religious and minority rights.

So why would 70 years be important?

Well, the Babylonian captivity lasted for a period of 70 years, and as the Daily Crow explains, the number 70 just keeps popping up throughout the Bible.

Moses appointed 70 elders, and the gospels record 70 parables by Jesus. A total of 70 Israelites began their nation in Egypt before it would grow to over 2 million by the time of the Exodus. 70 elders made up Israel’s Great Tribunal which would later become the Sanhedrin. 70 disciples were sent out by Christ to preach the gospel in Luke 10. Therefore 70 means complete and perfect judgment or perfection made complete through judgment.

2. The number 50 is also a very important biblical number. And even though 2017 will not be a Jubilee year, it is fascinating to note that 2017 will be exactly 50 years from the reclaiming of Jerusalem in 1967.

3. If we go back another 50 years from 1967, that brings us to the 1917 Balfour Declaration, which was also a very significant landmark in the history of the Jewish people.

4. It turns out that there was also exactly 50 years from the Zionist Congress of 1897 to the U.N. resolution in 1947 that called for the creation of a Jewish state.

5. As I stated in a previous article, Donald Trump was born precisely 700 days before Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948.

6. The nation of Israel was 77 days old precisely 777 days after the birth of Donald Trump.

7. Israel’s 70th birthday will come precisely 700 days after Donald Trump’s 70th birthday.

8. Donald Trump’s shocking election victory just happened to fall on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s seventh year, seventh month and seventh day in office.

9. Donald Trump will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old on his first full day in the White House.

10. Donald Trump’s first full day in the White House will also come during year 5777 on the Hebrew calendar.

11. Many are pointing to a very unusual celestial arrangement that will take place on Sept. 23, 2017. It is being called “the Revelation 12 sign,” and some claim this is the first time in 7000 years that we will see the scene described in Revelation chapter 12 actually being depicted in the heavens. The following is what Revelation 12:1-2 says:

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was with child and cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.

You can learn more about this very unusual event right here on YouTube. And of course, just because the stars are lining up a certain way does not mean something specific will happen on that day. Some have suggested that it could be the birth of something, and others have suggested that it could be the beginning or the end of a countdown. The truth is that I don’t know if anyone knows what it might mean at this point, but Jesus did tell us to watch for signs in the sun, moon and stars in the last days, so we should be alert.

Throughout history, God has always liked to use numbers to get our attention. And as you just saw, there are lots of unusual numbers that seem to connect 2017, Israel and Donald Trump.

And even without any of those numbers, many have long had a feeling that 2017 is going to be an extremely significant year, and so we all need to be ready for whatever God has in store for us.

The effects upon USA of Obama’s UNSC Resolution 2334

The following opinions of some well-informed journalists are presented to draw attention to the profound nature of past and current events relating to and connecting the USA with Israel.:

williamkoenig-web[1]John McTernanBlog subscribers of long-standing may recall my posts on the ongoing work of William Koenig and John McTernan in monitoring the catastrophic effects upon the USA of meddling in and mishandling Israel. Co-authors of Israel: Blessing or Curse (2001), Bill runs Koenig’s World Watch Daily and John blogs at John McTernan’s Insights.

Their subsequent bestsellers (click images for link to site) are described as follows:

Eye to Eye

What do these major record-setting events have in common? 

  • The ten costliest insurance events in U.S. history
  • The twelve costliest hurricanes in U.S. history
  • Three of the four largest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history
  • The two largest terrorism events in U.S. history

eye-to-eye-bookAll of these major catastrophes and many others began or occurred on the very same day or within 24-hours of U.S. presidents Bush, Clinton and Bush applying pressure on Israel to trade her land for promises of “peace and security,” sponsored major “land for peace” meetings, made major public statements pertaining to Israel’s covenant land and /or called for a Palestinian State. The greater the pressure placed on Israel to comply the greater the corresponding catastrophe and/or event.

Are each one of these major record-setting events just a coincidence or awe-inspiring signs that God is actively involved in the affairs of Israel?

In this book, William Koenig provides undeniable facts and conclusive evidence showing that indeed the leaders of the United States and the world are on a collision course with God over Israel’s covenant land.

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem” (Zechariah 12:9)

As America Has Done to Israel

This book shows what was happening spiritually behind incredible events in American and world history such as:

  • The largest Nazis meeting outside of Germany took place in America the location was soon struck by one of the greatest disasters in US history.
  • President Franklin Roosevelt died at the very time he was blocking the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine.
  • God raised up the United States as a world power at the very time America took in millions of Russian Jews.
  • The founder of the modern Zionist movement was not Theodor Herzl, but William Blackstone, an American evangelist.
  • As America became a great power, God directly used the nation to help fulfill His prophetic word with the rebirth of Israel. Without America’s power, modern Israel would not have been reborn.

as-america-has-done-to-israel8John reveals the direct correlation between America interfering with God’s prophetic plan for Israel and incredible disasters hitting America. Starting in 1991 and continuing until today, as America touches the land of Israel and Jerusalem incredible disasters hit the US including:

The Perfect Storm, Hurricane Andrew, the Northridge Earthquake, Hurricane Katrina, the attack on 9/11,  the Stock Market crash of 2008, the Joplin Tornado outbreak.

You will be amazed to see the correlation between the greatest earthquake in modern history and events in Israel!  (For more from this see this post.)

OBAMA AND ISRAEL, STRIKE AND COUNTER-STRIKE

Carolyn GlickLastly, for those wanting an insightful analysis of the Israel-Palestine situation, as ever I can strongly recommend ‘ne-plus ultra’ journalist Caroline Glick’s above-titled article, first published in the Jerusalem Post. Caroline grew up in Obama’s local Chicago neighbourhood and after making aliyah served as Coordinator of Negotiations with the PLO and then asst. foreign policy advisor to Benjamin Netanyahu in his first term of office as Israel’s PM. For more about her professional background click Glick.

This perspicacious author and senior contributing editor of the JP opens her ‘Obama and Israel, Strike and Counterstrike’ as follows:

‘UN Security Council Resolution 2334 was the first prong of outgoing US President Barack Obama’s lame duck campaign against Israel. Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on Wednesday was the second.

‘On January 15, stage 3 will commence in Paris. At France’s lame duck President Francois Hollande’s international conference, the foreign ministers of some fifty states are expected to adopt as their own the anti-Israel principles Kerry set forth in his speech.

‘The next day it will be Obama’s turn. Obama can be expected to use the occasion of Martin Luther King Jr. Day to present the Palestinian war to annihilate Israel as a natural progression from the American civil rights movement that King led fifty years ago.

‘Finally, sometime between January 17 and 19, Obama intends for the Security Council to reconvene and follow the gang at the Paris conference by adopting Kerry’s positions as a new Security Council resolution. That follow-on resolution may also recognize “Palestine” and grant it full membership in the UN….’continue reading.

Further Reading on UNSC 2334

A new bipartisan move is underway in Congress to defend Israel against UN Resolution 2334. This is encouraging.

Also, this morning’s World Watch Daily covers Sen Rubio and two other Senators’ introduction of legislation to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. POTUS Obama has shown his true, contemptible colours over Resolution 2334 by which he descends into obscurity and the ‘peace process’ dooms itself to abject failure.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

us-israel-flags

There is good news to report as 2017 begins.

With Members of Congress back in Washington to begin a new legislative session, a major bipartisan effort is now underway in both chambers to counter U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334, the anti-Israel measure President Obama shamefully refused to veto just before Hanukkah and Christmas.

I commend my friend, Sen. Marco Rubio, the Florida Republican, and Sen. Ben Cardin, the Maryland Democrat, for leading this effort to defend Israel, America’s most faithful and loyal ally in the Middle East. Today, they introduced a Senate resolution with broad bipartisan support that strongly opposes the actions taken by the U.N. and the Obama administration and lays out a positive American agenda towards Israel and the peace process with the Palestinians going forward. In the House, a similar resolution has been introduced by Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA) and Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY),  which I also commend.

President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence have…

Jesus Christ declares, “I am the Light of the World”

I’m grateful to Dave Chapman for sending this personal encouragement which I’m sharing with my readers upon return to blogging. Having been offline for all but an hour over the holiday I hadn’t read this until today and happily surprised (maybe I shouldn’t be!) at this year starting with a ‘coincidental’ hint from the Lord!

In our daily ‘Keep Praying and Bless’, as blogged in the Summer, we’re now back at its opening day’s decree and blessing for Land’s End, from where the Praise Bus started its nationwide journey accompanying the Olympic Torch in 2012 (see introductory post). The first decree in this prayer cycle is “I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD”, from John 8:12 – “I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.

Hence my immense delight upon discovering the title of Dave’s paper (links and video are mine). Be mightily encouraged and blessed as you read:

2017 – A FESTIVAL OF LIGHT

As I start to write it is very early morning on Christmas Eve.  I had been inspired by an account I just read of the Jewish soldier in George Washington’s army (JNN News), who had apparently inspired him to hope, even believe, he would win the war he was in – yes, the one against us British who were seeking to bring them under our control!

Christmas Greetings from PM Netanyahu at the Christian Embassy, Jerusalem

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid a visit to the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem on Wednesday (21 December) to deliver his annual Christmas Greeting to the Christian world.

In his traditional holiday greeting, Netanyahu stated:

“To all of our Christian friends around the world, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I send you these greetings from Jerusalem. I’m standing in the courtyard of this magnificent International Christian Embassy. I’m so proud of our relations with our Christian brothers and sisters. I wonder for many of you if you remember the experience you had when you first visited Israel, when you saw the Church of the Holy Sepulchre or the Via Dolorosa or the Sea of Galilee or Nazareth. I’m sure it moved you deeply. And it moves us deeply to have this bond with you because we all know that this land of Israel is the land of our common heritage. It changed the story of humanity, it changed civilization. What a magnificent heritage it is. Yet, we also know that it is under attack these days, that the forces of intolerance, of barbarism that attack all religions attack Christians with particular vehemence. We stand with you and I’m proud of the fact that in Israel, this is the one place in the Middle East that the Christian community not only survives but thrives and it’s no accident. It’s because of our commitment to religious freedom; it’s because of our embrace of our heritage; it’s because of our embrace of our common future. So please come to Israel. Come and visit me, I’m waiting for you. It will be a great experience for you. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year.”

pm-visit-to-embassyWith Christmas falling this year on the same day as the Jewish festival of Hanukkah, ICEJ Executive Director Dr. Jürgen Bühler responded by wishing the prime minister a “Happy Hanukkah,” and giving him a silver Hanukkah dreidel as a gift.

“It was a great honor to host the Prime Minister at our Embassy headquarters and to receive his good holiday wishes for Christmas,” said Bühler. “We know his warm, sincere remarks will be greatly appreciated by Christians in lands far and wide. It also was a thrill to respond with our own ‘Happy Hanukkah’ wishes for him, his family and all the Jewish people. This indeed is a season when both communities can celebrate the triumph of light over darkness. And this timely display of solidarity shows once more that Israel is a country where religious freedoms are not only safeguarded but even encouraged.”

Founded in 1980, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem is considered the largest global pro-Israel Christian ministry, with branch offices established in over 85 nations and supporters in more than 160 nations worldwide.
