CDC (USA) claims it has authority to use police to do everything you see going on in Australia; and Congress agrees — Leo Hohmann

We’ve arrived at the imposition of the New World Order as foreseen 25 years ago by a renowned Kiwi end-times teacher, and others – in fact, we’re now beyond it: once democratic nations are becoming  totalitarian and violent against their citizens.

We’ve all seen the videos from Australia. Police chasing down and beating a helpless woman, shooting rubber bullets at construction workers who violate that country’s draconian lockdown rules. A 12-year-old girl gets pepper-sprayed for not wearing a mask!!

Watch the horrific excuse for policing below. ‘How Australia plans on beating COVID’

Do not be fooled into thinking this is just an Australian thing, never to happen in America. Check out below what’s going on in Israel, where IDF soldiers are being forcibly jabbed in the middle of the night. […continue reading at..] CDC claims it has authority to use police to do everything you see going on in Australia; and Congress agrees — LeoHohmann.com

In this post we see America and Australia affected by demonic direction – BUT God..!

Internationally renowned Barry Smith started writing this book in April 1995 and  it was completed in October 1996. It is sub-titled ‘Or, The Secretive World Take-over’. Often in his books and lectures he’d repeat that New Zealand had become the guinea pig of the New World Order (aka Deep-State, aka The Great Reset) for introducing its policies of global control. 

End-Times Update: eyes turn toward Jerusalem!

Zecharia 12- The Coming Deliverance of Judah

12 The [a]burden of the word of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of [b]drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. [NKJV, BibleGateway.org]

In my humble opinion, this news supports view that the Biden regime is Obama III, in view of #44’s strong anti-Israel stance.

Extract:

‘Democrat’s bill violates the Oslo Accords that were facilitated by Bill Clinton which considered the territories “disputed”, not “occupied.” Barack Obama was the first to violate the Oslo Accords when he refused to veto UNSC 2334 on December 23, 2016 on his way out of office….’

Gog-Magog update: leaked tape of ‘puppet’ Kerry and Zaif

In my post of last Thursday on Donna Rigney’s prophecy that confirms exposures of corruption through forthcoming ‘leaks’ I gave some screenshots of supportive media headlines. In referring to the above I said details of this leak’s source are especially interesting with respect to the Gog-Magog alliance.

In actual fact, I’d awoken on Tuesday 27th April with a sense of American betrayal of Israel and so the news from USA about John Kerry’s chats with Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zaif may be of direct relevance. You may recall my blogging on Kim Clement’s Two Presidents prophecy that US would no longer be reliable ally.

Later that day, I was alerted to Karen Edeling’s comment about Kerry on my post of 23 April on Prophetic Words for USA about the possibility of US military taking action. She refers to this video of Robin Bullock posted 16 April in which he claims to have ‘overheard’ plotters deciding to use John Kerry in their secret schemes:

(From 0:40) – “I heard the name ‘John Kerry’…Now something is moving in the Spirit concerning him. I don’t know exactly what’s about to take place, but I know his name’s being thrown around in the spirit-world right now. And I’m hearing things discussed in private by people for they say,

“We make our plans, let’s use Kerry, let’s bring him and use him this time. He’s no good for anything else – let’s use him in this area. I hear them talk, I see their faces, for their strategies now are going to use a new puppet – let’s use John Kerry. Yes, yes.”

(At 1:58) – “But “NAY” says the Lord. “I am going to unleash a torrent, a river into this earth…”

So, the later news-leak of John Kerry having revealed Israeli attacks upon Syria to Iran’s FM can’t be coincidental. However, we need to examine such a claim carefully and so I dug out the original article on this matter:

Previously a senior writer and war correspondent for the Wall Street Journal for 17 years based in the Middle East, Farnaz Fassihi is now based in New York and she tells how she learned about this private, leaked tape:

‘The recording, of a conversation in March between Mr. Zarif and an economist named Saeed Leylaz, an ally, was not meant for publication, as the foreign minister can be heard repeatedly saying on the audio. A copy was leaked to the London-based Persian news channel Iran International, which first reported on the recording and shared it with The New York Times.’

The part relating to John Kerry is very brief BUT is undated and its position within the disclosure suggest his remarks were made relatively recently, yet it was more likely they were made during his tenure in the pre-2017 Obama administration (and on Kerry’s activity I’ve blogged many times). I’ve also covered some of the Israeli and US actions against Iran from DebkaFile reports and The Four Signposts.

Here’s Farnaz’ reference set in context:

‘On the night that Iran decided to retaliate against the United States for the killing of General Suleimani, two Quds Force commanders went to see the Iraqi prime minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi, to inform him that in about 45 minutes Iran would be firing missiles at a military base where U.S. troops were stationed, Mr. Zarif said. The Americans knew about the strike before he did.

‘Former Secretary of State John Kerry informed him that Israel had attacked Iranian interests in Syria at least 200 times, to his astonishment, Mr. Zarif said.

‘He also pointed to the cover-up of the Guards’ downing of a Ukrainian jetliner in Iran that killed 176 on board on the morning after Iran attacked the air base. The Guards knew immediately that their missiles had hit the plane, but only admitted to it three days later….’

Kerry’s subsequent denial is, in my opinion, possibly a tenable position because it was well-known that, for its national self-defence, Israel had to make frequent forays against Iranian and Syrian positions. From Zaif’s account of his rivalry with the Iranian general and the fact of total military oversight nationally and internationally, he could possibly have been ignorant of the truth about that Syrian situation!!

EZEKIEL 38-39, GOG-MAGOG ALLIANCE

However, Farnaz’s earlier paragraphs make even more informative reading (emphases mine):

‘In a leaked audiotape that offers a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes power struggles of Iranian leaders, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the Revolutionary Guards Corps call the shots, overruling many government decisions and ignoring advice.

‘In one extraordinary moment on the tape that surfaced Sunday, Mr. Zarif departed from the reverential official line on Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the commander of the Guards’ elite Quds Force, the foreign-facing arm of Iran’s security apparatus, who was killed by the United States in January 2020.

‘The general, Mr. Zarif said, undermined him at many steps, working with Russia to sabotage the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers and adopting policies toward Syria’s long war that damaged Iran’s interests.

“In the Islamic Republic the military field rules,” Mr. Zarif said in a three-hour taped conversation that was a part of an oral history project documenting the work of the current administration. “I have sacrificed diplomacy for the military field rather than the field servicing diplomacy.”…

‘In the portions that were leaked, Mr. Zarif does praise the general and says they worked productively together in the prelude to the U.S. invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. He also says that by assassinating him in Iraq, the United States delivered a major blow to Iran, more damaging than if it had wiped out an entire city in an attack.

‘But he said some of Mr. Suleimani’s actions also damaged the country, citing, as one example, his moves against the nuclear deal Iran reached in 2015 with Western nations, the United States among them (the Trump administration later renounced it).

‘Mr. Zarif said Russia did not want the agreement to succeed and “put all its weight” behind creating obstacles because it was not in Moscow’s interests for Iran to normalize relations with the West. To that end, Mr. Zarif said, General Suleimani traveled to Russia to “demolish our achievement,” meaning the nuclear deal.

Mr. Zarif took issue with General Suleimani on other fronts, criticizing him for allowing Russian warplanes to fly over Iran to bomb Syria and for moving military equipment and personnel to Syria on the state-owned Iran Air airline without the knowledge of the government and deploying Iranian ground forces to Syria.’

THE PLOTTERS: BIDEN AND CIA ?

Last week I was able to read Iran International’s Twitter platform and spotted this intriguing reference to Biden’s CIA director Burns meeting in Iranians in Iraq!

SO let’s keep watching for the fulfillment of Biblical and contemporary prophecies.

PS. Treachery of this ‘Puppet’ is detailed in next post.

End-times Update: ‘Mark of the beast’ moves into next phase – TIME TO WAKE UP!

After yesterday’s astonishing turn of events whilst blogging (and like a double-strike) I awoke impressed to focus upon three new reports on health risks arising from wearing masks. However, I was getting ‘nudged’ into re-examining their role in a different area regarding the fulfillment of ‘End-Times’ prophecy. Then this morning a ‘confirmation’ of this was posted by Gilad Rosinger – AND digressions have since delayed my blogging on this issue. Thus, I know I’m on the right track!

To remind ourselves, let me recap with extracts from Part 1 of Another insight into global satanic strategy: are masks a trial-run? (emphases added):

MaSk is ONE letter away from MaRk

‘Trying to return to sleep after waking early on Saturday 18th July last, I was suddenly struck by: “WE’RE ONLY 1 LETTER AWAY FROM THE MARK OF THE BEASTWAKE UP CHURCH!” (Change just one letter in maSk to get maRk)

‘That is, we need to realise that compulsory wearing of masks in public is a trial-run, or testing, the progress and outcome of which will inform and lead into the imposition of the infamous Mark of the Beast. It is a softening up and preparing the global population for such an eventuality, as foretold in chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important for Christian leaders to teach about being prepared for the End-Times.

‘…It dawned upon me we’re not only ‘one letter’ but also ‘one inch’ away from carrying the full marking, or ‘carved-effect’ (original Greek). The new legal requirement from last Friday imposes a mandatory restriction upon anyone wanting to go shopping and buy anything that focuses not only upon a person’s mask, thereby highlighting their forehead and eyes – its edge being on the bridge of their nose, is an inch below the forehead – but also upon waving a hand in order to buy without handing over cash or cheque, or tapping one’s own private code.’

That post then considered two salient points: First, it’s happening in Jewish year 5780, the last digit being Hebrew letter ‘pey’, meaning the ‘mouth’ and oral communication: eg in praise and worshipping the Lord. Secondly, the spirit that works in the ‘sons of disobedience’ is also ‘prince of the power of the air’ (Ephesians 2:2).

‘Hence, the significance of events focusing upon the effects of everyone’s breathing!!!! AND the poison spewed out in mainstream media headlines and opinions that curses the nation!

AND it just so happened this was 7th instance of this topic cropping up at that time through unrelated events! Moreover, I not only had a severe physical impediment but also came under a Jezebelic attack, which the Lord countered by giving me more data! After sounding out a few friends on that ‘insight’ I published Neil Mackereth’s The Mark of ‘Immunity’, or is it ‘Allegiance’? as the second part of that posting.

This was quickly followed by Gilad Rosinger’s in-depth consideration published on 30th July, What Does God And His Word Say About Masks? – which continues to be in my top-ten blogs. Here’s a relevant snippet from that article (emphases mine):

For the first time in history most of the developed world has been thrust into a “new normal” that ignores logic and omits personal health choices involving our bodies. Manipulation and control is everywhere and it is these mechanisms that are the dominant forces in witchcraft. Specifically the Jezebel spirit.

We are to have nothing to do with witchcraft. (‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:11-15, 17)

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.

“This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.”

”The Lord began to speak to me about this spell-casting and sorcery being a manipulative form of mind-control that is conditioning the people to surrender their God-given rightful authority.

‘I believe that the governments are grooming the people and preparing them for much more serious and nefarious issues. The Lord impressed me to look up this word:

🚨 GROOMING. 🚨

– When a sexual or other kind of predator sets the stage for abusing another, such as a child or other person (as in the case of sex and theory human trafficking).

– Trust: May give toys and/or other gifts and favors to the intended victim to gain trust.

– Alienation: Settings the stage for the intended victim to become alienated from their primary caregivers/circles or family and community.

– Fear/dependency: Sets up a power dynamic in which the victim feels too afraid to report the abuse, perhaps by involving the victim in activities their friends and family might judge the victim negatively for, such as drug use (or even the abuse itself).

‘I believe that this divide and conquer agenda of fear and alienation by forced lockdowns and forced masking is a clear grooming process that the world is being forced into in preparation for a much more sinister plot.’

INDEED, the vast majority of our citizens are now well and truly conditioned to accept government dictats and one-sided scientific hypotheses – grooming has achieved its purpose and the ‘trial-run’ is complete.

CONFIRMATION 1 – CHANGE ONE LETTER

Hence my astonishment yesterday whilst transcribing a couple of minutes from Robin Bullock’s message on something big happening in the military. Evening dinner-time was fast approaching and I needed to finish; but the video was still running with its captions of Robin’s talking about buying goods during the pandemic and a great fear in people. So, I began to listen from 29 minutes and heard him refer to his son’s wife:

“Madison pointed out to me one day…and said, “You know that there’s only one letter difference; one letter is different in mask and mark” and that stuck with me because without a mask you can’t buy and sell!
One day the ‘s’ with be replaced with an ‘r‘ – without a mark you can’t buy or sell.

“Now wait a minute, this is where they’re pushing this. This is why this has happened: because satan is in this fleshy realm and is manipulating whole nations in order to bring something on the scene. He’s manipulating nations to do it and so they tell everybody, “Wear a mask“…but the mask didn’t do any good…and it was proven medically it meant nothing..”

It’s exactly like what I’d heard last July, as recounted above, on ‘maSk’ being only 1 letter away from ‘maRk’!

Therefore, I sense something is truly going on and the Lord’s drawing attention to it, don’t you think so?

CONFIRMATION 2 – THE NEXT PHASE

Gilad, founder/CEO of Radiant Israel and founder/MD of Scrolls of Fire, remarks:

“Anyone who still thinks this tyranny is about health measures and public safety should take a serious time out from their life to re-evaluate what is they believe is true and what is false.
“With the lowest infection rates since the beginning of the pan-demic and one of the highest vac*ination rates in the world, you would have to literally be foolish to believe that introducing these measures now has anything to do with public health.
This is about totalitarian control and oppression of the population. Fear, manipulation and control are all signs and tools of witchcraft. Putting tracking devices that are meant for criminals on innocent healthy people and treating them like law breakers is wicked and demonic. It’s calling good evil and evil good.

“This is medical apartheid. It is the separation of people because of their medical decisions. It doesn’t matter if they are healthy and pass the health tests. They are just punishing law-abiding citizens that aren’t going along with the coercion and manipulation to participate in the medical experiment.!”

Fortunately, there is much discussion going on in the UK about vaccination passports.

It’s noteworthy that Israel is first to be introducing this kit – but not entirely surprising as the devil’s ultimate focus is upon and against that land and the Jews, with its ultimate aim of preventing Lord Jesus’ bodily return to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.

The ‘trial-run’ or ‘grooming’ stage of getting maSks to be worn full-time by people, in tandem with insisting upon cashless payments, is now complete.

The next stage is to introduce an actual hand-fixed device such as this bracelet so the public is ready to have it replaced by micro-chip or electronic tattoo as MaRk of the Beast!

Globalism created the Covid terrorist operation to trigger the Great Reset: Italygate is still the scandal that can foil the NWO’s plans – Cesare Sacchetti

Yet more informative background reading; this time with the prophetic visions of the beasts in Daniel 7 and Revelation 13 in mind. This piece is by the Italian investigative author Cesare Sacchetti, whom I introduced to readers in Has Trump Surrendered, or Conceived the Most Brilliant Trap Against The New World Order?

In commenting upon Farcebuk Bans President Trump’s Interview, ‘High Plains Drifter’ Tim Shey brought my attention to Cesare’s tweet of yesterday, which reminds me of the word Timothy Dixon brought of the VP being betrayed and in turn rocking the Democrat party’s boat:

12th Anniversary: ‘The Endgame is now in play’ – parable of the wheat and tares (GPS #59.2)

Sunday was the 12th anniversary of my first writing on Bible prophecy playing out in our days. And having been stunned by the privilege of being given the Lord’s opinion direct on the matter, I was left with absolutely no doubt whatsoever about it!! But more on that shortly…

Thus, began a small flow of emails to friends and church leaders drawing attention to how current events seem to tie into the scriptures.

In fact, I’d forgotten all about that until early this morning when mulling over the blog I’ve started drafting on developments in America and a certain political theory on what’s happening; and which appears to reflect scriptural and contemporary prophecies!

And just like 12 years ago, I was ‘nudged’ to check what Jesus had said about God’s Kingdom being likened to His sowing a field of wheat and finding it contaminated by weeds. So, in my quiet time after breakfast I checked that particular parable in Matthew chapter 13 and considered how it fits in with the Apocalypse, or Book of Revelation, as well as with ‘The Rapture’ outlined in Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians.

Therefore, I decided the draft-blog needs splitting; that is, the bad and the good bits separating into two parts (LOL I now realise how that reflects the parable HA)! BUT the story of that scripture really necessitates an introductory background for that blog. Only then did I recall the original email I’m now writing about – AND little did I suspect that MORE was yet to arrive!!

Having read, contemplated and decided upon that action plan, I booted up the pc and the very first thing I spotted was a comment sent two hours earlier by ‘hitch-hiker’ Tim Shey far over ‘the Pond’ in Idaho. It connects directly into what I was contemplating with the Lord! Tim’s contribution follows shortly…

FIRST, here’s the vital part of that first email The Endgame Is Now In Play sent on 28th February 2009:
‘Last year, I encountered two conflicting claims about Jesus’ explanation of the parable on the end-time harvest of wheat and tares (Matt 13:36). So I went to check scripture BUT upon opening my Bible a deep excitement exploded within as I heard,

“This is ALL about to be fulfilled” – WOW!!’

Now, so we don’t miss its great import, let’s read what Jesus says after explaining why he teaches the masses in parables, whereas His disciples are entitled to know the mysteries of heaven (Matt 13 NKJV, BibleGateway.com – emphases mine):

Another parable He put forth to them, saying: The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”

NB: tares, also known as darnel, is similar to ordinary wheat, but carries a toxic fungus.

The Parable of the Tares Explained

37 ‘He answered and said to them: He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. 39 The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. 40 Therefore, as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. 41 The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, 42 and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

Revisiting Jesus’ explanation of the parable and how evil people will be dealt draws a distinct parallel with current events in all realms of affairs, especially as explained by a British computer specialist whose investigation of election fraud, and reference to his essays on the ‘Q’ phenomenon, are included in my coverage of the US election fraud.

Then, as mentioned above, in comes Tim Shey’s comments (read thread here). Not only do they relate directly to one of the main sources of ‘Q’ theory in quoting Cesare Sachetti’s Tweets, but also to last week’s posts on Queen Esther. Read Tim’s terrific insight carefully:

‘Sacchetti writes: “Trump is demolishing the deep state under the puppet Biden administration. Basically, Trump is using his enemies to fulfill his goal and defeat the globalist cabal. Trump is beyond Sun Tzu.”

‘It looks like the Book of Esther and Haman hanging from his own gallows revisited. The Lord is in control and President Trump is absolutely brilliant.

‘I love Sacchetti’s quote: “Trump is beyond Sun Tzu”. Sun Tzu, of course, wrote the classic THE ART OF WAR. I read half of THE ART OF WAR a number of years ago. Halfway through, the Lord told me to stop reading Sun Tzu’s book. I asked the Lord, Why? (because it is an excellent read). The Lord told me, “The man who obeys the Lord defeats Sun Tzu every time.”

‘Praise the Lord! Sun Tzu was a great military strategist, but the Lord can run circles around Sun Tzu any time He wants to. Glory to God in the Highest!

‘Trust and obey.’

Please keep all this in mind as background for the next postings and we will see how the dots are getting connected – or pieces falling into place in God’s Invisible Jigsaw.

Incremental steps to Hell – Neil Mackereth (GPS #55.3 & 56.1)

Further to my re-blog of last Thursday of Mario Murillo on lies Christians tell and hear and my writing on satanic strategy and nest of snakes, Neil follows (hence God’s GPS) with:

“In this time of startling exposure and Machiavellian intrigue I have had another “download” of information. It moved me powerfully! Yes, a very similar theme to Naomi’s word, my picture was of a huge mass of writhing snakes piled high and expanding.

“I also felt a significant time-line link to earlier pictures of the snake-like tentacles of Leviathan trying to hold UK in permanent bondage to the EU and needing to be cut right through to enable us to fulfill our destiny as a sanctuary (refuge) Nation.”

INCREMENTAL STEPS TO HELL

Choose This Day Whom You Will Follow

The poison in the US political infrastructure and administrative institutions, involves a deeply embedded web of deceit and deception that is supported by a sophisticated and persuasive propaganda machine. The deep-state corruption is so intricately interwoven into all levels of the body politic, the legal system, the security services, the corporate entities that control the economy, and the billionaire elite who are the puppet masters, that it is well-nigh indestructible. The skill and ruthlessness of these Machiavellian and mafia-like manipulators is both shocking and truly demonic.

These all-pervading deceptions include a determination to fulfil the liberal agenda by a process of seemingly reasonable incremental steps. This staged persuasion approach and “next steps” policy is designed to change mind-sets, and has allowed things we thought of as abhorrent a few years ago to be moved to accepted ‘norm’ status. It gets worse, the rights of groups with perverse and unsavoury ideas have been protected in law and, in their new found “authority”, they now demand that we support and encourage their views.  To do otherwise invokes a whirlwind of abuse.

Currently, the USA is the spotlight battleground for fraud and deception and progressive liberalism. However, the same poison is clearly visible throughout the western democracies and beyond. The ultimate aim, which is only understood by a few, is for the World to worship Satan. At the moment, we are in the early stages: the ground is being prepared for a “Great Reset” and a new “One World Order”. Watch for the seemingly reasonable and logical incremental steps that will usher in totalitarianism, a world leader and a world government. 

Delay is possible, as President Trump has demonstrated. However. the Lord showed me a picture of a black serpentine mass, piled high and growing like an expanding pyramid of writhing snakes, which had innumerable web like connections. The network is so strong that even if a part is damaged, it will only cause a minor delay while a tactical readjustment, or rerouting round the problem, overcomes the hinderance: the long-term strategic goals of the Illuminati will not be affected.

The Lord described the serpentine pyramid as the new Tower of Babel, presently intent on glorifying man, but really being used as a stepping-stone towards the deification of Satan. I saw a sharp two-edged sword descending from heaven to cleave the mass of writhing snakes in two. The Sword, which is the Spirit of the Word of God, will cause a divide, a safe space for a great revival. The Lord explained that, after this temporary respite, the enemy will regroup and take forward the events prophesied in End-Times Scripture.

Fear not, what is about to happen is all part of God’s End-Time agenda. The final harvest (the great revival) will be followed be the rise of the Antichrist. His forces of evil, having gained great confidence as they expand their grip on the world, will be drawn to the place chosen by God. The place where the armies of God, led by Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords, will destroy the Antichrist and his forces.

These things are ordained, they are not hidden to those who have eyes to see.

PS(RB) Wed 2nd > Secular Democrats Urge Biden to Pounce on US Christianity

[Digital Globe with Hand by Watcharakun, courtesy Freedigitalphotos.net]

Prophetic Watch on America and President Trump cont’d: 4 – spheres of influence and the First Horseman of the Apocalypse

In most ESSENTIAL, instructive teaching Able Praise identities demonic activity of not only America’s but also global media (including anti-Pope Francis!). It is directly related to Apostle John’s vision of the first of four horsemen of The Apocalypse being released after Jesus’ opens the first four seals of the 7-sealed scroll handed to Him by our Heavenly Father (Revelation 5). Abel writes in His Kingdom Prophecy :

AMERICA: PRESIDENCIES and SPHERES of INFLUENCE: THE MEDIA GAVE JOE BIDEN ITS THRONE

There are tremendous shifts going on in the heavens; as the saints wage war through prayers to enact the righteous Will of The LORD.

While we have our earthly perspective of leadership and how things play out on earth; we must also learn to gain heaven’s perspective; to see how the heavens are shaping the activities on earth.

Much more than the election of numbers in the earthly politics, there is the election of Thrones in the Heavens; and every significant political office holder rules through a Spiritual Throne that defines the sphere of their influence in the earth — and the things they have limit and permission to do.

The Scriptures in The Book of Daniel, Chapter 4 describe Nebuchadnezzar as a significant tree; a tree that had great influence in the heavens and the earth, just as Nebuchadnezzar had seen in his dream, and Daniel correctly interpreted when he saw that a sentence had been brought by a holy Watcher from Heaven, decreeing that the tree be cut down.

Likewise; The Scriptures also revealed something significant about Pharaoh in Genesis 41. Pharaoh was given the SpiritualTthrone of a Bull that ruled the economic sphere of nations.

Pharaoh had a dream where he stood at the bank of a river. The dreams of the seven fat cows and seven lean cows represented the seasons of the reign of and through Pharaohs of Egypt.

For Nebuchadnezzar, the tree was a prophetic symbol of the Spiritual Throne he was seated on, with which he ruled the nations at that time, and it determined the sphere of influence his reign would have; whether of healing for the nations as righteous trees represent, or of corruption spreading across the nations as evil trees represent.

The Spiritual Throne a leader sits on, shows which sphere amongst others they will have great influence in, where they will try to enact policies; and what sphere of the world their reign will have its greatest impact.

So when a leader is being elected; and choices are also being made in The Courts of Heaven; as they weigh the choices of men; the requirements of sacrifice; and the alignment or misalignment to The Proposed Will Of The LORD; the end point is that a throne is appointed to that leader; and it defines the direction of his influence.

So a leader, may arise bearing an Economic Throne; like The Pharaohs of Egypt stood as bulls at that time and will tremendously altered the financial landscape of the world, or like Nebuchadnezzar stood as a Tree; and tremendously altered the religious landscape of the world.

We see how, after he had lived through his sentencing for pride; and after the trial of the three Hebrew men by fire, The Scriptures record that King Nebuchadnezzar in more than one occasion passed decrees saying that all must worship the One True GOD [Daniel 3:29; 4:34].

This however, happened after King Nebuchadnezzar tried to alter the religious landscape of the world by forcing everyone to bow down to an idol — save, for the faith of Shedrach, Meschach and Abednego; and the intervention of The LORD being the fourth man in the fire; the plot to enact and enforce global idolatry was defeated.

We see this pattern also in the Book of Revelation as The Seven Seals were being unsealed. The Scriptures reveal In Revelations 6, as the first seal was unsealed; there was the sound of thunder; and there was one seated on a White Horse with a Bow and a Crown, and he went out conquering.

The sound of thunder is The Throne of Media. The ‘media’ isn’t just for news. The sum of all its streams into the world of men is intended to subdue men through controlled reasoning like we have seen through social media wars, as was in the time of Jezebel, when the true prophets were made to go into hiding.

This clearly shows one being given a tremendous Throne of Media; and the ‘media’ being a governmental tool that defined influence in the earth — conquering, oppressing and suppressing.

The Scriptures also records in Revelation 6:2; concerning the season of the Second Seal. John The Beloved saw, a Red Horse; and power was given to him who sat on it to take peace from the earth.

He was given a Red Sword; and he rode with the commission to kill and to make people kill one another.

Again; this is one given a Throne that ruled through the spheres of men that causes wars, division, racial tensions; the opposite of which is peace, unity.

One with this authority will have his greatest influence in the earth in the wars or peace and this will define the season of their rule.

One more illustration of this in The Scriptures can be seen in Revelation 6:7; when the season of the Fourth Seal was unsealed.

John The Beloved saw a Pale Horse; and death and hell rode on this horse; and economic authority was given to them; to kill with the sword, with hunger, and with beasts of the earth.

Imagine that! The sphere of their authority was the economy!

Every presidential reign through an Economic Spiritual Throne, will have great effect in the economies of the world, just as the Pharaoh’s had.

These are levels of truth and understanding. The Body of Christ must begin to rise to for what is to come in the days ahead.

We must reach deeper into The Wisdom of The LORD, for the battles of Kingdoms, Thrones and Territories unfolding before us.

Through this, we can actually discern what battles are going on — in the heavens; and have not just a news media political perspective; but a heaven-to-earth perspective, on what is playing out so we can labor right.

This brings me to the unfoldings in the Nation of The United States of America concerning the 2020 Presidential elections.

In the writings I co-authored with Veronika West on His Kingdom Prophecy; I had emphasized over and over again, Donald J. Trump was raised up as a Tree.

This is seen in how he has tremendously altered the religious landscape of the world and in bringing healing to the nations — the Middle Eastern nations.

I shared how I was visited in my home in Nigeria by three Archangels from the USA, and how they were discussing about The American Tree.

Veronika West also shared several revelations from The LORD about Donald Trump and the relationship with The American Tree.

One very profound revelation is the dream about The LORD meeting Donald Trump at the Rose Garden and Donald Trump standing by two willow trees (see In the Rose Garden).

There’s no doubt Donald Trump has had a tremendous influence in the religious sphere of the world; daring to reestablish the Covenant of The LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST concerning The Nation of USA; proclaiming publicly and on behalf of The Nation their submission to The LORD JESUS; restoring the covenant with Israel; and bringing healing to the nations; in terms of Israel’s relationship with other nations; amongst other things. (Emphasis RB)

In the HKP Word titled; “America and The Second Term Presidency of Donald Trump”, I shared dreams I had as far back as July 2019, showing how the election won by Donald Trump was given to another when the results were called; just as it has happened.

The significant part of that dream that stuns me till this day is what I said to Donald Trump in that dream telling him, “You did what you were supposed to do….” (Emphasis RB)

Going further, I have shared what The LORD had shown going forward; as to how the battleground is now shifting to The Courts.

However; The LORD began to draw my attention last night to this part of the Warfare I have shared above — beyond the Wars of Numbers, that will go on in The Courts — we must discern the Wars of the Spiritual Thrones and spheres the enemy is daring to possess and the areas he is daring to make inroads.

This is where the most significant victory must be gained.

In the published HKP Words; “America and The Second Term Presidency of Donald Trump” and “The Courts of Heaven”, I shared how I was shown The Harlot was contending for the Spiritual Throne and sphere of The Church.

There also was ‘a lying spirit’ that was contending for The Prophetic Throne and sphere of the prophets.

I shared how the enemy was fighting so hard to get the ‘Harlot—Lying Spirit’ duo to dare to sit over the spheres of The Church and The Prophets.

The most significant part of politics is not just the numbers or the figurative head, it is The Spiritual Throne and Legal Sphere of Influence given to that figurative presidential head, that determines the actual authority and spheres of life a presidential reign can influence. (Emphasis RB)

This is why in times like these, The LORD begins to raise up Daniels who can dare to stand as oversight over Thrones that perverse leadership sits on, The Josephs who will rise to be father to the Pharaohs; to be as oversight and a checkmate to the activities of kings who may dare to wield their authority in perversion; The Elijahs who will stand up against Jezebel and the weak king; to put their excesses in check and walk through the battlefield of the spheres they are ruling in.

Yesterday; The LORD began to say to me; that we must now begin to look in to see what Throne the enemy will try to give to his stooge, so we must know the Spheres he will try to rule through, so we know what wars lay ahead — beyond the politics of numbers — but to discern the Thrones and Spheres of influence, the battlefield is shifting into.

Just as I had explained Nebuchadnezzar standing as a tree to influence the global religious world; first in his attempt to enforce global idolatry; that was overturned by the faith of Shedrach, Meschach and Abednego, the second time, when his boastful pride led him to personal worship for what Babylon had become.

This brought about his punishment. These led him to make and enact decrees proclaiming The LORD GOD as the one True GOD to be worshiped.

I also briefly explained how the Pharaohs stood in as ‘bulls with great influence’, over the global economic sphere.

While the political process is playing out; I already wrote as published in His Kingdom Prophecy, how the enemy dared to raise up the combination of the ‘Harlot—Lying Spirit’ to dare to gain access to wield authority over the spheres of The Church and The Prophets, during this political season.

I am convinced that through the labors of the saints, there is a breakthrough in this and these spheres wouldn’t fall into the enemy’s hands.

However; The Burden Of The LORD came over me again last night; and The LORD was saying to me that the battleground is changing!

We must not deny the obvious fact that many also gave ‘rights of leadership’ through their votes, to choices that are ungodly and that is a voice of witness we must not deny.

So, while the process persists and advances to The Courts; we needed to press into what Throne and Sphere the enemy is seeking to give Joe Biden, and what area we must be ready to have a season of war in.

This concerns more than just the Nation of the USA. The global system of nations was coming to a time where the beast that ruled through the Nebuchadnezzars, The Pharaohs, The Jezebels and the Romans, were seeking to rise to oppress and suppress.

It will be a time for The Daniels, Josephs, Elijahs and The Pauls to arise and take their stand; to break through an oppressive and a suppressive spirit.

As I prayed through this, I woke up with this very short dream this morning. In the dream; I saw the four black scratch marks from the four claws of a voracious lion that had scratched, what I understood as ‘the wall of nations’.

I understood this lion to be The Media Lion Of The Nations. (End of Dream.)

As soon as I woke up, I heard, “The Media gave Joe Biden its Throne”.

As I woke up; The LORD took me back to this scripture concerning the unsealing of the Seals and the Thrones that were released and the Spheres they were sent to influence,
“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the [noise of thunder], one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer,” Revelations 6:1-2.

It’s important to note that, prophetically; The Lion’s Roar is like the thunder; and an ancient beast is daring to rise.

It’s character is that of ‘conquer and conquest’ and it uses all of the weapons in its arsenal to conquer, to oppress and suppress.

We have begun to see this through social media censorship.

Nations are beginning to consider laws to censor and control their populace through social media, A few nations already have that in place. However, this is a battlefield that will be revealed in a new way; laws, policies, ideologies, doctrines, economies like the cancel culture and more, may begin to be brought to the fore in a new way

This is a Sphere The Body Of Christ haven’t covered a lot of grounds. This is where we must set our hearts win; laboring in the spirit; in prayers, intercessions and actions — as we look forward to the political and judicial resolve of things.

This is a call we must also see from Heaven’s Perspective — a whole new battleground is forming before us!

We must not be caught unaware!

Veronika’s vision of burning bush fits sequence of Biblical parallels!

Although not a fan of Sid Roth, I recommend his video-interview because it puts the vision of Donald Trump and a burning bush into the perspective of Biblical prophetic parallels. Moreover, Robin Bullock’s opening reference to 2012 as beginning a timeline of parallels fits into not only my dream and Bill Johnson’s word for the UK in Sept 2011 of the Coming Kingdom and launching this blog, but also William Koenig on Bible cycles as well as Nathan Morris’ word 2012 Setting the Stage for the End-times and that of Dr Sharon Stone’s on the world-changing significance of Hurricane Sandy….!!!

SO be mightily blessed

AND, it just so happens I happened upon the following much shorter teaching by Perry Stone on Bible prophecy parallel and cycles, where significant events of ancient times get mirrored in modern days.

FURTHERMORE, I’d once again been mulling over these years being a replay of the ‘Days of Noah’ as prophesied by Jesus himself:

End-Times Briefing 10 cont’d: key signs and prophecies

We continue Annex A to Simplicity and examine some items in earlier Briefings:

KEY END-TIME (or SECOND ADVENT) SIGNS and PROPHECIES

An awareness of End-Time signs will help us to see if any world events, as they unfold in the weeks, months and years ahead, can honestly be described as fulfilling Biblical prophecy. Analysis of world events in relation to prophecy requires care and integrity, both to ensure genuine spiritual significance, and to avoid “false news”, conspiracy theories and the pronouncements of false prophets. It will be exceedingly hard to convince a sceptical world that prophecy is being fulfilled!

Some prophecies in the Bible seem particularly significant, in light of current world events, especially in the Middle-East. The following prophecies are worth bearing in mind, especially by those who are intentional about marrying historic prophecies with contemporary occurrences. They are, in short, signs of the End-Times: Continue reading

Bible Update: Red flag flies over Mahdi’s mosque: Apocalypse’s 2nd horseman may now have its sword!

ESSENTIAL READING: Mark Davidson brings what may be the most important insight you may read on the immediate aftermath of America taking decisive, defensive action against a regime that is actually hell-bent on bringing about the End of the World, as covered here on Richard’s Watch in many postings under the Mahdi tag.

It’s absolutely imperative ALL Christians – especially those in leadership – know about the eschatalogical impulse behind the Iranians engineering such a conflict in order to bring about the return of Shi’ite Islam’s 12th ‘hidden imam’, followed en-train by Jesus!!

For a fuller grasp of this dangerous doctrine browse through the above tag, starting with my blog of nearly 7 years ago Iranian Leader’s End-Times Declaration.

I never thought I would be writing an article like this, for I had never thought one single event could equate to the second horseman being made ready to make men slay one another. There are reports from Twitter and, at this point, only British tabloids such as the Express, Metro, and Sun, that something […]

Bible Update: ‘Gog-Magog’ game-changing event on Israel’s border

This morning’s news brings a reminder, in the midst of the current political upheavals, of what Bible prophecy points to: an almighty battle near the Mount of Megiddo, otherwise known in Greek as ‘Armageddon’!

In the previous update we heard about Russia and China’s increasing influence in Africa and noted publication of a most comprehensive US Congressional testimony entitled “Moscow in the Middle East and North Africa” documenting Russia’s active, aggressive and shrewd alignment with the nations of Ezekiel, chapters 38-39. Now comes this development:

DebkaFile reports Russia lets Hezbollah-Iranian forces redeploy opposite Syrian-Israel border; in other words, it looks like Putin has reneged upon his agreement with Israel and USA (emphasis mine). This exclusive reads:

‘Deep apprehension in Israel over a Russian U-turn, which is letting small Iranian Al Qods and Hizballah units regain former positions 10-15km from the Israeli and Jordanian borders. They are coming back after Russian forces drove them out last year and established a safe zone at those border districts in their stead.

‘Reporting this turn of events, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources add that the Russian forces, not content with allowing this Iranian-Hizballah comeback, have also evacuated their own positions, leaving the local population under the control of the Al Qods and Hizballah invaders. These actions violate Russian President Vladimir Putin’s commitment last year to US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to purge S. Syrian borders of the hostile elements ruled from Tehran and provide monitors for a safe zone.

‘Washington and Jerusalem have interceded strongly with Moscow against this breach while trying to establish whether they were ordered from Putin’s office in the Kremlin or the local command on a directive from the Russian defense ministry. For now, neither the US nor Israel has decided how to respond to the new pro-Iranian buildup at Israel’s back door. They are also trying to find out if the Russian step is Moscow’s response to the US-Turkish safe zone initiative for northeastern Syria. This week, a large American unit landed in southern Turkey to start activating the joint US-Turkish safe zone, which aims to separate the Turkish army from the pro-US SDF militia which is dominated by Syrian Kurds. Moscow may have opened the door to Iran in southern Syria to counter expanding US involvement in the north.

‘Israel showed first resistance to the new hostile presence at its border on July 24 by firing surface missiles at the intelligence stations Iran was setting up on the Tal Al-Harara hilltop opposite the Golan border. But the Russian move continued notwithstanding.’

Bible Update: ‘Gog-Magog’ moves into Africa and meets ‘Kings of the East’

Ezekiel 38
Gog and Allies Attack Israel

Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, [a]the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, [b]Ethiopia, and [c]Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you…”

Ezekiel 39
Gog’s Armies Destroyed

“And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, [a]the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal; and I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel…”  (NKJV – BibleGateway)

In last Friday’s in-depth news-roundup Koenig’s Eye-View From The White House, the presidential seat’s ‘resident’ Christian journalist William Koenig reports:

‘The Congressional testimony entitled “Moscow in the Middle East and North Africa” presented by Anna Borshchevskaya is extremely comprehensive. It documents Russia’s active, aggressive and shrewd alignment with the nations of Ezekiel, chapters 38-39. It also shows how Russia is out-positioning the United States in many countries. The testimony even mentioned that Benjamin Netanyahu has met with Russian President Vladimir Putin more often than he did with the Obama administration or has with the Trump White House. I highly recommend you take the time to read the entire testimony.‘ (emphasis mine)

Here’s some of its pertinent parts that Bill quotes:

  • With a combination of aggression and diplomacy, Russian president Vladimir Putin has ensured Russia’s long-term prominence in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Washington must now take Moscow into account in the region to a degree it hasn’t had to for years.
  • Moscow’s September 2015 military intervention in Syria was a game changer, but it’s important to remember that, prior to the intervention, Putin had worked methodically and consistently for at least fifteen years to return Russia to the Middle East—a region that has historically mattered to Russian rulers. While he had achieved considerable influence by as early as 2010, the Syria intervention officially restored Russia’s place as a critical regional player and helped position Putin as a regional power-broker.
  • Putin has developed pragmatic ties with every government and major opposition movement in the region—an approach that has proven more successful than the Soviet Union’s ideological blinkering.
  • The region’s leaders feel comfortable dealing with Putin, who appeals to their self-interest. They covet Russian weaponry and hedge their bets in the uncertainty of U.S. policy. Moscow doesn’t ask Middle East leaders to improve the human rights situation in their countries.
  • American allies in the region, from Egypt, Turkey, Israel, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), and Morocco, to one degree or another, have come to see Putin as a necessary reality and a more reliable partner than the United States—a mediator who can talk to all sides. Not only has the Kremlin courted every major government and opposition movement in the region, but increasingly, they conversely court the Kremlin.
  • The Kremlin has been careful and holds its cards close when it comes to its ultimate intentions in Libya, but Russia’s presence in the country is real:
  • Saudi Arabian King Salman made a historic visit to Moscow in October 2017, which demonstrates Moscow’s accepted prominence in the region.
  • Arms and nuclear deals play an important role in Egypt’s increasingly closer ties to Russia.
  • Moscow is also building Turkey’s nuclear power plant. Erdogan’s ongoing discussion about the purchase of S- 400’s from Moscow would have been unthinkable even a decade ago but increasingly appears to reflect reality rather than mere posturing.
  • Morocco has grown closer to Russia in terms of Moscow’s support for Morocco’s nuclear energy.

CHINA

The Testimony also covers China’s involvement in the Middle East, which so far is mainly economic with a military and political component.

Also, here’s ‘Rosh’, the leader of the Gog-Magog alliance at a summit with that ‘king’ of the East, who stated that,

Beijing will continue to promote steady development of ties with Tehran no matter how the situation changes.” Xi condemned Washington’s unilateral pullout from the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran as the main reason behind rising tensions in the region, calling for the promotion of multilateralism. He stressed that Beijing will continue its strategic relations with Tehran in various fields, including fighting terrorism and systematic crimes.’

Let’s see what scripture says about them in Revelation 16:

Sixth Bowl: Euphrates Dried Up

12 Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings [g]of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

22 biblically-related news headlines in one week!

Within days of New Year’s Day seven years ago I introduced this blog’s first readers to the Watcher in The White House, accredited Christian journalist William Koenig, in Points to Ponder: 2011-12 and Biblical Historical/Financial Cycles. It was the first of occasional sorties into the nature of Time and the Bible, now collated in this hub – Time: a Primer.

In last Friday’s Eye View from the White House Bill opens his weekly report with…

“22 significant new events that happened this week – This has been an amazing week of prophetic significance with continued final-day alignment activities” and briefly reports upon activities and then enumerates the events as follows:

“The following are news articles that are prophetically significant. Below the news is insight and information regarding Secretary Pompeo’s trip and more news.

Bill doesn’t refer to specific bible prophecies because most of his readership, like mine, is familiar with Old and New Testament prophecies. [Those covering current events in the Middle-East are Daniel 7-8 (the vision of four beasts, the goat and ram), Zecharia 12 (Jerusalem and its enemies) and Ezekiel 36-19 (Gog & Magog) in the main.]

Next, he outlines the points Secretary Pompeo made in his speech in Cairo, which was a sensible turnaround of the seriously flawed one addressed to the whole Muslim world by Obama in 2009. [My critiques of Obama’s Cairo Speech followed by Europe and Two Daniels (ie. the EU) were some of my early emails on end-times.]

Subsequently, Debka reports Sunni Arab leaders are very uneasy about America pulling out of their region in the face of Iranian aggression, but they have to learn to look after themselves – in my opinion they will draw more closely alongside Israel, an alignment that started months ago.  Also, it’s a necessary part of shaking off the shackles of the Obama pro-Iranian legacy.

Game-changing moment: Egyptian President Sisi makes history building largest church in the Mideast…

Quote

A most historically noteworthy event reported by Joel Rosenberg. Perhaps we’re heading towards fulfillment of Isaiah 19:23 on a highway being built from Egypt to Assyria and that both nations will form an alliance with Israel…

(Cairo, Egypt) — It’s impossible to overstate how historic this is: a pious Sunni Muslim Arab President builds the largest church in the Middle East and gives it as a Christmas present to the Christians of his country. Can you remember the last time this happened? Neither can I. Yet this is precisely what happened […]

Bible Update: “Like Pieces of Meat Before Our Teeth” (Daniel 7:5)

Meanwhile ‘back on the ranch’; ie. where my interest in Bible prophecy kick-started 30 years ago upon seeing Iranian forces rehearsal of storming Jerusalem (details here) – Not forgetting this week’s news of Iranian regime’s persecution of Muslim converts to Christ.:

…..so said one of the kings of the Persian ram. Once again we see the Iranian regime speaking prophecy from Daniel. If the Signpost interpretation is true, the Iranian regime is planning…

Update on End-times’ cashless society (Rev 13:16-18’s Mark of the Beast)

Noticed on this weekend’s World Watch Daily homepage display (the other headline on US Supreme Justice Kavanaugh is noteworthy too!):

Click image for direct link to Fox News article

It reminds me of the prophecy at Revelation 13:16-18 on the activity of the ‘Beast from the Earth’:

‘He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has [g]the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.’

Also, reminds me what internationally renowned Australian Barry R Smith taught on the emerging technology soon to introduce a cashless society and ‘Pay & Go’, as read over 20 years ago in ‘…better than Nostradamus’ and ‘The Devil’s Jigsaw’!

Bible Update: ‘Gog-Magog’ axis moves onto financial footing

Latest developments on ‘axis of infamy’ foreseen by OT prophet Ezekiel is that last week’s Putin-Rouhani-Erdogan summit in Tehran determined ways of circumventing US economic sanctions against their three nations (ie Russia, Iran and Turkey).

Once their troops in Syria overcome the rebels last stronghold in Idlib then Syria will be rebuilt and become a sanctions-busting hub. According to DebkaFile, ‘the three leaders forged an economic-strategic pact to create measures for fighting American sanctions. One measure approved was to contract all business deals among Russia, Iran and Turkey, including gas and oil, in local currencies instead of American dollars. The same rule would apply to banking transactions….US and Israel paid special note to the trilateral decision reached in Tehran to convert the massive projects for Syria’s post-war recovery (after Iran had solidified its military foothold there) into a back-door hatch for escaping US sanctions against Iran. During the Obama presidency, Oman and Abu Dhabi served this purpose; under Donald Trump, it will pass to Damascus, with the added benefit of protection from the deepening Russian-Iranian-Syrian military cooperation…’

Many have long suspected events are well on the way to final fulfillment of the prophecy of the destruction of Damascus (Isaiah 17:1). With ‘Basher’ Assad’s obliteration of rebel areas, large parts of that capital are already in ruins!

Genesis 12 and deceit of Turkey’s president cont’d

Continuing from previous post, in an interview in the Oval Office on Monday, Donald Trump said he thought he had a deal with Turkeys’ president when he helped to persuade Israel to free a detained Turkish citizen!  He’d thought Erdogan would then release Andrew Brunson, an evangelical pastor held since 2016 and facing 35 years in prison on espionage and terror-related charges.

Arutz Sheva reports him telling Reuters on Monday, “I think it’s very sad what Turkey is doing. I think they’re making a terrible mistake. There will be no concessions.”  When asked about the potential damage to other economies from the tariffs he imposed, he said, “I’m not concerned at all. I’m not concerned. This is the proper thing to do.”

Trump said Erdogan had wanted the Turkish citizen returned from Israel. Earlier a senior White House official said they’d met in Brussels for a NATO summit in mid-July where they discussed Brunson’s case and what could be the way forward to release the pastor.  Turkey had sought US help to persuade the Israelis to release a Turkish woman who was being held in Israel, the senior official said. In exchange Turkey would release Brunson and other Americans being held in Turkey.

Trump said he kept his side of the bargain. “I got that person out for him. I expect him to let this very innocent and wonderful man and great father and great Christian out of Turkey,” Trump told Reuters.

In response to the continued imprisonment of pastor Brunson the US president imposed sanctions on several Turkish officials and a 20 percent duty on aluminum and a 50 percent duty on steel. Turkey imposed tariffs on certain imports from the United States.

Gaza Knock-on Effect

After deceiving Trump and defaulting on their agreement, Erdogan has now stepped into the stalled haggling over plans to obtain a truce to alleviate the situation in Gaza.  Yesterday, DebkaFile exclusively reports: 

‘One of the key benefits under discussion is the use of a Mediterranean port to enable the enclave to receive goods and export merchandise, mostly agricultural products. Port Said on the bank of the Suez Canal was mentioned, as well as Limassol or Larnaca in Cyprus. However, the release of Ebru Ozkan was seen by Hamas as a sign of Israel’s weakness and it raised the ante once again. Now, the Palestinian negotiators in Cairo are demanding that the port made available to them be located in Turkish Cyprus. There, Israel would have no way of monitoring the types of goods Hamas was importing to the Gaza Strip and President Erdogan, a longstanding fan of the Palestinian terrorists, would be able to supply them out of sight with weapons and military equipment. All this means that Turkey can now jump with both feet into the shambolic Gaza truce negotiations and use them as a tool for getting back at Trump and Israel.’
