Rallying Calls to Prayer – 2: Prophetic Strategy

In The Rallying Cry to Prayer the Cryers write, “We believe that as we step out in faith – the Lord will give us the strategies – not just to know how to hear the warnings of what the enemy plans to do – but more than that, He will speak to us from heaven showing the counter-attacks we are to use. So whenever there is a warning coming to us; “Seek me” says the Lord “And I will show you the strategy to stop it.” Indeed we believe the Lord is saying, I will show you how to do it.” He knows we are not yet alive as He would want us to be and we probably know that in our heart of hearts too. All this is about to change!”

My friend Neil Mackereth, one of the valued contributors to this blog’s material on the EU and Brexit (as here and here) and author of Signs, wrote to me on Friday with these intriguing insights:

Dear Ginny, Dear Richard,

‘I felt a call to respond to the “frinkle” moment I had on reading your very recent call to prayer. It is truly amazing how themes are developed, by God giving to various people different pieces of the jigsaw.

‘The other morning I woke with the phrase “the darkest hour is just before dawn” in my mind. The conviction that we are now in the most intense time of prophetic fulfillment was very strong, as was the realisation that the return of Jesus (the second advent) will render biblical prophecy obsolete (I know there will be other millennial events to follow but we won’t need the Bible to tell us about them).

‘My thoughts were directed to the urgent need for prayer. I was reminded that the Old Testament prophets were often the lone recipients of God’s guidance for the people. In particular, Daniel saw it as essential to intercede on behalf of the people, to plead for the prophetic fulfillment of the end of 70 years of exile. Also, Elijah saw himself as the sole prophet of God against 450 prophets of Baal at Mount Carmel (1 Kings 18:22)

‘I am convinced that in our “New Testament” times the strategy has changed. Each “prophet” receives an element of a much bigger picture and it requires unity for the jigsaw to be completed. Friends of God live in the stream of prophetic enlightenment and recognise the signs of the times. With information and understanding comes responsibility!

‘Put another way, there are now many “mini-Elijahs” in the Christian community and, by the unifying process of networking, their various prayer groups will become the Elijah church: an essential bedrock which God is establishing in this nation and beyond.

‘Returning to 1 Kings 18, at verse 21 Elijah says “How long will you waver between two opinions” which might well be the mantra for prayer groups today. Do we really believe God is in charge? Do we really believe that God gives us signs (e.g. the EU displaying the “badges” of Babylon)? Do we really believe that God made a covenant with Abraham and his descendants? Answers to these sample questions will influence our views and prayers on God and Mammon, Replacement theology, Brexit and so on.

‘Lastly, it was made clear to me that Christians are not to just sit in the audience watching the play. We are also players (audience participation!) and need to study the script in order to fulfill our roles in the unfolding drama…’

AMEN my friend and how amazingly this fits into what I’ve recently learned, as will be revealed in a video to appear in the next post!

BREXIT PRAYER ALERT: to cut and cast off the EU’s tentacles

Thank you to my dear friend Neil Mackereth, author of SIGNS, for his kind permission to publish the following email of last Monday’s date. It has been shared with intercessors, one of whom makes this sound observation:

“It’s a good Word in that, apart from stirring the intercessors to keep praying, it gives a clear explanation spiritually as to why we need to pray. Some people have not got this yet and think that prophecies should not be ‘political’.”

You may wish to join others in praying as the Lord leads along the lines Neil relates below and to stand with him in making the stated declarations.:

Neil writes,

‘Dear Richard,

‘Do hope you and Nina are well and enjoying our exceptional weather.

‘Been having some swirling pictures and thoughts – sorry to dump them on you but do feel called to look for others to join me in prayer on this particular line.

Brexit

‘A few weeks ago (early May 2018) God showed me a picture of the English Channel parted from the centre (Isle of Wight) to Dover in the East and to The Lizard in the West. I asked if this was for an “exodus” and if so, in which direction? The Lord said to look again. I saw revealed on the sea bed what looked like hawsers stretching across the Channel. I decided they must be mooring lines and that we needed to cast them off, as if we were a ship leaving port.

‘The Lord said, “Look again”. I saw that what I’d thought were mooring lines were alive and writhing! The Lord said these are the tentacles of the serpent that seeks to hold Great Britain in the web-like structure of nations that he is creating. The members of the EU have been led into an unholy alliance which seeks to undermine their individuality, and which advocates a federal form of ungodly humanism. Until Brexit, no member state has ever sought to leave the EU – Satan is enraged.

‘What can we do? The Lord said the tentacles must be cut.

‘How? By the word of God that is the sword of the Spirit.

‘Over recent months the Lord has been showing me some insights into the spiritual significance of Winchester as the ancient capital of Britain, and the seat of the only English king to have the sobriquet “Great” (Alfred the Great). Winchester is built on strong biblical foundations and there is a reservoir of spiritual power and authority into which we can tap.

‘The Lord said to pray the word of God over the waters of the River Itchen which flows out from the city of Winchester. The river flows into the Solent and the Isle of Wight acts as a separator that divides the waters to the East and to the West. By the power of God, the water will be a scythe that cuts the tentacles of the serpent.

“So, I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes” (Daniel 9:3). It is clear from Daniel’s prayer that even though we think we know the course we are on, we still need to pray expectations into reality. We don’t know why it should be so, but that it is so is clear from Scripture, history and our experiences. God chooses to involve us in His purposes.

‘The battle is raging in the heavenly realms. As in Daniel 10, princes are fighting to retain their territories and they seek to thwart God’s plans. However, the angels of God are advancing and recovering lands: victory is assured.

‘We have so much to be thankful for, so much has been set in train by God’s design: now we most earnestly pray for God’s mercy and forgiveness, and for the full realisation of the restitution of Great Britain as an independent nation under God.

‘Afternote: I started rationalising my thoughts and applying logic, until I read Oswald Chambers’ devotion yesterday (26 May) “The danger with us is that we want to water down the things that Jesus says and make them mean something in accordance with common sense; if it were only common sense, it is not worth while for Him to say it. The things Jesus says about prayer are supernatural revelations”.

‘Such exciting times!’

Neil

The Signpost Perspective: The US Embassy in Jerusalem

Amen. Apart from it having been Israel’s 70th anniversary, I agree Mark’s reasons for this recognition of Jerusalem and his sound conclusion.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

The United States moved its embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, 2018.

Having some time to reflect on this event, and connect the dots to other events both past and future-prophesied, I believe this is an important milestone—not for the end times in general—but for Israel during these times.

I believe we can now divide the modern, end-time history of the nation of Israel into three phases.

Israel, Phase 1

The first phase saw the establishment of the Jewish people forming a community. After many centuries, the Jewish people returned to the land of Israel; not the land of Palestine, but the land of Israel. Jews began to arrive in the late 1800’s, bought desert parcels and swampland from their Arab neighbors, and created a thriving Jewish community. By 1948, there were a little over half a million Jews living and working in the coastal plain, the Negev…

Fulfilled Prophecy #28: Iran’s ‘quake on Israel’s 70th – and Daniel..!

After sticking Charles Shamp’s prophetic words of Dec 2016 on the Brussels beast and the UK, with that of Feb 2017 on America’s embassy moving to Jerusalem, onto the blog’s home page as a result of their popularity, I was nudged to visit his Prophet’s Loft and to rummage around – I got a couple of surprises!

Now, do you recall my earlier surprise upon learning of an earthquake in the vicinity of Iran’s nuclear reactor actually happening on 19th April – Israel’s holiday celebrating its 70th Independence Day?

In checking out Charlie Shamp’s collection of prophetic words I find two confirming my sensing the unique significance of that ‘quake as being a ‘Sign from God’ (see herein) -not only geologically but also geopolitically – where I wrote

‘By ‘coincidence’ a geological ‘act of God’ took place on 19th April 2018 – the 5.5 magnitude earthquake in the vicinity of Iran’s nuclear power plant at Bushehr. As mentioned, I’d already mused on a ‘quake happening and blogged:

…we could reasonably consider this may be a direct warning to Iran that the same, or bigger, can so easily happen to its nuclear programme at any time! Moreover, it’s occurring on the year’s cyclically critical date of 19-20 April is surely no coincidence!

Here are pertinent extracts of what Charlie delivered this year:
1. A Time of Earthquakes and Eruptions (4th January)

“…I am going to shake up everything; turn some nations upside down. There will be natural shakings in the nations, yes a natural earthquake will be felt. In a nation that desired for war to shake the ground in the Middle East. You have plotted against my people, you have plotted against my Israel and you will be shaken, your land will shake, your ground will quake. I will overturn a royal throne and shatter the power of a kingdom that has come against my people. I will overthrow your government, dismantle your weapons and armaments and throw your army into confusion. The desire you have had to utterly destroy my people will come upon you unless you repent…”

2. I Saw Egypt and Iran in The Spirit (24th March)

‘…Again I heard the voice of the Lord say, “Iran, your deal is done, the foreign favors have come to an end. You have dealt harshly against my people Israel. You have sought their destruction and demise. I have seen your plan to tear Israel apart and wipe her from of the face of the earth. Your heart of hate has forced my hand against you and your agreement with America will be torn in two! Now you will deal with me in the days to come.

Behold, I will break your bow Iran, the foremost of your might will be destroyed! For I will cause you to be dismayed before your enemies and before those who seek your life. I will bring disaster upon you and I will send the sword of my word and it will strike your heart, yes the heart of Tehran. I will set My throne in your nation and will destroy from there the king and the princes. I will bring back the captives of the nation. Those who gather with me in secret to pray are more then those who meet with you in the open. I have heard the cry of my people coming from this land for freedom. I have caused my word to be heard in the heart of the nation and soon some you trust will turn to me and bow their knee. The destruction I will bring will not be by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit. My hand will sweep across the nation and many will be saved in one single day.

There is a rumbling coming that will shake the ground, you will feel it’s force. For it will be a sign of what will come a shaking in your government, a shaking in economy, a shaking of your religion. I will shake free every hand and feet from the shackles that hold them and they will walk free, yes they will march in the streets. I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will shatter deception and scatter your lies by these winds, get ready for it will begin. The dry bones will come to life! Even the bones of my Prophet Daniel who is buried in your country will shake as a sign that my people in the nation will awake.”

I’ve only just read that closing reference to Daniel when copying the prophecy into place and it took me totally by surprise – it’s personally poignant in view of the many instances his Book has popped up over the past month, as recounted in GPS#16.

SECULAR CONFIRMATION!

If you’ve read the previous post’s link Watching Netanyahu in Tehran then, like me, you will have realised Caroline Glick’s analysis supports the details Charlie Shamp brought prophetically last January and March on the politico-economic shaking in Iran.

Selah.

God’s ‘sign language’: follow-up to EU-web #2 – Obadiah 15, ‘666’, EU-split

‘For the day of the LORD upon all nations is near; As you have done, it shall be done to you; Your reprisal shall return upon your own head.’ (Obad 15: on enemies of God’s covenant people.)

In discussing Tuesday’s ‘coincidences’ relating to the night vision of a huge spider’s web across Europe, here’s Part 1’s missing paragraph to my reply to ‘Fiona Z’:
‘…together with your email I had a notification from Tony’s blog of a video clip. It opens to show a person who’s been in my mind yesterday and first thing this morning, for the EU office she holds was created by ‘Recommendation 666’ and she’s against what Trump and Netanyahu are doing! (One of my first private emails on End-times refers to that post’s origins – see Not Many People Know – 2.)’

In his post entitled End Times my friend invites readers to “Take a look at the following video. Take it to the Lord in prayer”.:

Normally, I’m too busy to watch videos but was prompted to watch this one’s start and assess its merit. This video presents an overview of events leading into End-times, but neither the running news-banner or narrator divulge the identity of the person in the video’s first frames – run it a few seconds to check. So I comment on the blog,

“Fascinating timing Tony as the lady in the opening frame has been on my mind in connection with Israel’s 70th birthday because of her very strong objections to the US embassy move to Jerusalem, as well as against scrapping the Iran nuclear deal. (Read about her in Wikipedia: Frederika Mogherini)…upon opening my bible early this morning I decided to revisit Obadiah 15 on ‘The Day of the Lord’ for preparing a blog on those thoughts based upon that verse and EU – then upon getting notification of this post of yours I run the video and there she is!! I take this as strong confirmation that the Lord’s connecting the prophetic dots for us – as ever!”

YEAR OF ‘PEACE & SAFETY’!

Pastor Ken McMahon of Calvary Spokane draws to a close at 15:30 mark by referring to St Paul’s End-times prophecy at 1 Thess 5:3 of the world saying “Peace and safety”, and inserts a brief clip of that lady as High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy stating exactly that! Moreover, I blogged on this last year in Three Days’ Prophetic Jigsaw Pieces: #1 – 21st Sept and 1Thessalonians 5, when I asked,

‘Is what Apostle Paul foretold about the timing of the Day of the Lord happening today? Or this coming year? Especially noteworthy is the fact that today is Rosh Hashanah – the start of the Jewish New Year 5778!! You may recall having read about this a month ago in Today’s and one month away’s awesome events in the heavens on Mark Biltz’s message (1:04 – 1:05 mark refers)?

[I checked and found:] ‘The United Nations has declared 21st September to be observed annually and globally as the International Day of Peace (‘Peace Day’)’. Today’s and the next 365 days theme is entitled, ‘Together for Peace, Respect, Safety and Dignity For All’.

‘Look again, that scripture’s third verse promises ‘when they say, “Peace and Safety!” then…’, the clear inference everyone’s saying those words.’

Now, we consider how this person had cropped up in my weekend musings…

US EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM

Upon reading Sunday’s Debka report on preparations for the official dedication of the American Consulate in Jerusalem as the United States’ Embassy to Israel, I spotted a fact directly relating to a prophetic word on the EU urging Britain’s withdrawal – note my emphasis:

‘About 30 of the 86 ambassadors accredited to Israel accepted the invitation to the Foreign Ministry gala reception for the US delegation Sunday evening in Jerusalem. Most European Union ambassadors are boycotting the party, excepting Hungary, the Czech Republic, Austria and Romania, whose envoys will be there in defiance of Brussels, which takes strong exception to the US move. The Russian, Egyptian and Mexican ambassadors are not expected to attend. Guatemala and Paraguay have both promised to move their embassies to Jerusalem.’ (Palestinian ambassadors have since been recalled from those four countries – for an Abbas tantrum!)

Not only do I recognise those four European nations will be blessed through Genesis 12:3 and Obadiah 15-16 in standing with Israel on its 70th birthday, but also I noted it’s yet another indicator that 2015’s prophetic warning from David Noakes urging Britain to come out of the EU is moving towards its fulfillment, namely:
“…Rather than rely on Me and my faithfulness to you, you chose, for worldly purposes, to join yourself to an institution which has denied my Name and refused to acknowledge Me in its councils. My fierce anger is upon that institution on account of its rebellion, its defiant rejection of me and its hardness of heart towards my ancient people Israel.
“I warn you now that the European institution will not repent, even though I bring disaster and destruction upon it. I urge you, O Britain still beloved by Me for the sake of your godly forefathers, come out of her, so that you may not be caught up in that same destruction, for I am even now arising in judgment to bring to nothing what she has sought to achieve…”

[For more on this see Fulfilled Prophecies here, here and …‘6th Time’.]

Therefore, having learned 15 or so years ago about the ‘666’ foundation under Javier Solana of the EU’s office of High Representative – and combined with the weekend’s in-depth teaching on prophet Daniel’s End-time visions from Dr Arnold Fruchtenbaum – I recalled the current official’s anti-Israel and pro-Iran stance.

Also, in catching up on Caroline Glick’s latest in-depth incisive articles on the situation I spotted her reference to the EU’s High Representative in the opening paragraph’s of her Netanyahu’s Finest Hour. (William Koenig, the Watcher in the White House, refers to her as ‘ne plus ultra’ – none better!) She writes,

‘At the start of his cabinet meeting on Wednesday, President Donald Trump discussed his announcement Tuesday afternoon that he is removing the US from his predecessor Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran and reinstating the nuclear sanctions that were suspended with the deal’s implementation in January 2016.

‘European and other international leaders responded angrily to Trump’s move. The EU’s foreign policy commissioner Federica Mogherini was downright indignant.

‘Apparently unaware that the US is a more important EU ally than Iran, Mogherini insisted, “The European Union is determined to preserve it. Together with the rest of the international community, we will preserve this nuclear deal.”

If you like our British journalist Melanie Phillips and want to go deeper, then you’ll like Caroline Glick and may wish to read her Trump’s Iran Deal Was a Masterstroke, as well as Watching Netanyahu in Tehran.

After my Monday-Tuesday musings, Mogherini turns up at the start and ending of the video on Tony Pucci’s End Times post. Therefore, the Lord’s clearly alerting us by His ‘sign language’ to what’s going on in the world and how He’s aligning it to His prophetic scripture, and to words He’s giving today’s prophets.

DIS-INFORMATION

In case your knowledge of the above events comes from mainstream media, please be aware the British Brainwashing Cult is extremely unreliable on not only Brexit but also on the Middle East. For example, for a superior examination of the Gaza riots visit the media-monitoring site BBC Watch and study its thoroughly factual blog. See also Col. Richard Kemp’s eye-witness account and explanation of why the world is playing into Hamas’ hands. (Thanks Debbie. )

UPDATE ON ‘666’

Please note carefully that in absolutely no way am I attributing any similarity between living persons and biblical characters, but merely noting the nature and publication of official EU activities.

Not having kept closely abreast of related developments it was necessary to check my 2009 email on the EU and 666, especially to test and update links. So I was interested to find lawyer Constance Cumbrey reporting upon the EU’s first High Representative, Javier Solana, as being ‘one of the leading tacticians’ in the ‘Global Governance’ group –see this original data (scroll to top of page to read). Later, her Perspective affords these informative comments (emphases mine):

‘Global governance is and always has been the main game of the Davos crowd and its organizing body, WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM. Donald Trump has been perceived as doing much in his power to shut down global governance – climate control measures and all. The Davos crowd of politicians, high financiers, “scholars” and industrialists viewed Trump with neither affection nor favor.

‘One short week after Trump’s return from Davos, Switzerland and only two days after his State of the Union address, the New York Stock Market would drop by an astounding 666 points! That was a number obviously chilling to millions, including but not limited to Donald Trump’s Evangelical base of support in the USA. This happened only two days after Trump’s triumphant State of the Union speech to the United States Congress. A pivotal point of his speech was the dramatic improvement in the USA economy after his November 8, 2016 election. The 666 droppage would double immediately after the weekend on the following Monday by upwards of another 1200 points in one day.

‘Coincidence? Strange omen? Planned? Maybe, maybe not.’

Keep watching…

Synopsis of posts on unsealing the Book of Daniel

To continue our theme on Daniel:

In view of the multi-level aspect of prophetic scripture recognised by biblical scholars of both Classical and Dispensational persuasions – and thus hinting at the cyclical fulfilling of prophecy – together with the ‘Act of God’ Iranian earthquake on Israel’s 70th Anniversary, we now start considering the prophetic instruction Daniel received from a heavenly messenger – and praying that we be blessed in its becoming ‘unsealed’.

I’m not alone in having my attention drawn to this book because one of the scholars whom I’ve re-blogged on Richard’s Watch is now publishing fresh insights. As in the previous post, it’s only one of many references to Daniel which have popped up since Resurrection Sunday!

Therefore and on the understanding that most readers are familiar to some extent with the Book of Daniel, it would be helpful to take stock of what I’ve already blogged on the ‘unsealing’ of the vision recorded in its 11th chapter, as may be inferred from.:

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” (Daniel 12:4 NKJV)

GPS #16: are you too receiving a shower from Daniel’s book?

Dear reader – please let me know if you too have been showered by ‘jigsaw pieces’ of prophetic material within the Book of Daniel, especially regarding End-times. It’s like the Lord’s wanting us to help Him complete an invisible jigsaw by picking out pieces and dropping them into our minds – as though pushing a pile of pieces to our corner of the table.

Or to put it another way: it’s like a heavenly cloud’s been sitting for weeks over the three counties-overlap of East Hampshire – West Sussex – Surrey, to release flurries of flakes and then in fly a few pieces from overseas!  It’s a melting pot of metaphors where ‘God-incidents‘, ‘Invisible Jigsaw‘, ‘Bridge O’er the Pond‘ all indicate God’s ‘Global Prophecy Signals‘ are definitely operational.

For the record, here’s twelve pieces I’ve noticed:

  1. 10 April – learn previous week’s message at service for healing was on Daniel
  2. 17 April – Daniel again features at Acorn (unusually, 3 readings over April)
  3. 19 April – Cycles and Israel’s 70th Anniversary prompts rethink of Daniel’s 70
  4. 23 April – review previous on Daniel for summary on unsealing and new post
  5. 23 April – Nelson Walters blogs on his new book on Daniel: ‘70 Times 7′
  6. 26 April – intending posting on Daniel but publish Genesis & John geometry
  7. 26 April – need to split Daniel draft into two parts (published 6th & 11th May)
  8. 26 April – Veronika West vision of heaven and earth’s time synchronising
  9. 28 April – Receive invitation to Highlights from Daniel teaching weekend
  10. 3 May – Nina tells me of Anne Graham Lotz’s new book: ‘The Daniel Key’
  11. 6 May – Flag up Daniel in Signs from God? (Iranian earthquake on Israel’s 70th)
  12. 10 May – Finish synopsis on unsealing Daniel as next post > more to come!

Let me know in Comments below if you’ve been getting pieces too. Alternatively, you can email me (richardswatch@talktalk.net) or comment on Richard’s Watch Facebook.

‘Highlights from Daniel’ – Dr Arnold Fruchtenbaum’s teaching weekend

“It never rains but it pours,” so the saying goes and you may like to note what’s on this weekend in the Farnham-Aldershot area, as announced below:

Dr Arnold Genekowitsch Fruchtenbaum is founder and director of Ariel Ministries, an organization which prioritizes evangelization of Jews in the effort to bring them to the view that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah. He lectures and travels widely.

This event is one of several recent ‘God-incidents’ regarding this famous Old Testament book of prophecies. Maybe I’ll see you there?

Earthquake on Israel’s 70th, Jeremiah’s and Daniel’s ’70’ – ‘Signs’ from God?

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” (Daniel 12:4 NKJV)

There’s this suspicion surfing around in my spirit that we’ve arrived at a time of destiny prophesied in the Holy Bible. So, let me share a smattering of ‘signs’ suggesting the Holy Spirit is working through some ‘Acts of God’ – acts that involve not only security services’ intelligence but also spiritual intelligence – plus geological AND geopolitical shaking!

I humbly submit a small ‘sign’ was a rejigging of what I was writing a week ago Thursday. I was drafting two blogs in parallel but their planned sequence of publication got switched. However, this enabled both to fit in with a few external events. Even without my realising all this at the time, this change would support my suspicion that 2018 is a crucial point on God’s 2,500-years timetable.

TIMING TRAIL

In mulling over events of a fortnight ago it seemed worthwhile to have a rethink on the book of Daniel, which necessitated revisiting previous posts to refresh my memory. Therefore, this one’s more personal than usual, for reasons which will become clear. In fact, early last week I’d collected the material and drafted some points but my priority was to finish and publish the post on geometry of Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1. Nevertheless, the timing was just right because I was directed to an exciting, fresh revelation on Time in Creation, but which would await another post.

What’s more, unknown to me this timing was being confirmed that very day by a vision Veronika West had just received from the Lord on, of all things, the synchronisation of earthly time with heaven’s time! (See GPS #15.)

However, had I not completed that promised but long-overdue follow-up post on scripture’s geometry, then I’d have been out-of-sync with the timing of what you’re reading here. Now a week has elapsed, I appreciate it had to await its coming weekend’s news on the hostile Israel-Iran situation and Monday’s disclosure by Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu of an intelligence coup: his possession of a vast trove of Iranian secret documents. He claims these are ‘conclusive proof’ Iran lied about its nuclear weapons programme.

The Institute for Science & International Security’s analysis of the photos in It Fits! Qom Site Layout reminds me of the many warnings about that programme; eg. Iran’s nuclear reactor at Bushehr becoming operational and missile test-launches in 2010 (see Update to Could This Weekend Change The World?), and in 2013 no signs of any slowdown in Iran’s readiness for making nuclear weapons (Replay of Munich 1938 Missed – Only Just!).

Therefore, you may appreciate my contemplating Iran’s schemes behind Obama’s ‘nuclear deal’ and possibility of its disrupting Israel’s independence anniversary. (Even as I write, John Kerry is seeking to salvage what he so assiduously crafted to subvert Israel’s security.) Recently, its regime pledged to ‘annihilate’ Israel in any war, presumably by a nuclear strike! My musing over God’s hand staying such action by opening up the ground beneath Iran’s nuclear facilities was soon validated.

Thus, the timing of my writing these two posts got tampered with, not only temporarily but also spiritually. SO let’s keep our antennae attuned to what’s being synchronised.

ISRAEL’S 70 YEARS

Thursday 19th April 2018 was a date destined and now written in human history. Let me briefly set the scene:

It was the 70th Independence Day of the modern state of Israel, and which is especially interesting in the light of observations by financial analyst Eric Hadik. In revisiting his work I wanted to introduce readers to his theory of April being a historically significant month, especially for the USA as well as Israel. His observations are that April 19th-20th onwards has a very high probability of being a critical date in warfare and terrorism. With that in mind he overlooked a fact hardly known outside Israel; that 19th April is when the Memorial Day for fallen Israeli soldiers rolls right into Independence Day. It is different to Israel’s official, internationally recognised birth on 14th May 1948.

Immediately before and after 19th April, hostilities in adjoining Syria took an increasingly dangerous turn with the distinct possibility of war breaking out between Israel and Iran. It was much more than bellicose ‘sabre-rattling’ for their swords were already drawn and cut-and-thrust about to get under way.

By ‘coincidence’ a geological ‘act of God’ took place on 19th April 2018 – the 5.5 magnitude earthquake in the vicinity of Iran’s nuclear power plant at Bushehr. As mentioned, I’d already mused on a ‘quake happening and blogged:

‘…we could reasonably consider this may be a direct warning to Iran that the same, or bigger, can so easily happen to its nuclear programme at any time! Moreover, its occurring on the year’s cyclically critical date of 19-20 April is surely no coincidence!

This strong earthquake on the 70th Anniversary of Israel’s Independence and hot in the heels of my blogging on historic dates and cycles, prompted me to consider biblical references to number 70; especially what’s known as ‘Daniel’s 70-Weeks‘, or more specifically 70 ‘sevens’ or years of weeks.

As well as the timing and location of that ‘quake, the significance of its close proximity to Iran’s nuclear power facility would make it of high geopolitical import within only a few days. On Monday 30th April, Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu publicly announced Mossad’s possession of those Iranian secret files.

JEREMIAH’S 70 YEARS

There was another and highly important 70-year period in Israel’s history. It was 2,500 years ago, when the leading governor in Babylon, the Jewish prophet Daniel, discovered it during his interceding for his people in captivity there. As he sought the Lord in the first year of king Darius on how long their exile would last (Dan 9:1-2), God showed him the prophecy of Jeremiah that it would last 70 years (Jer 29:10), and it would be extended to ‘seventy sevens‘, or 490 years (Dan:24-27).

DANIEL’S 70 ‘YEARS’

So, could the just-completed 70 years of modern Israel’s history as a free nation be of any relevance to that first 70 years of captivity? Moreover and maybe far more importantly, could it have any relevance or bearing upon the long-awaited final ‘week’ (or seven years) of Daniel’s 70 ‘years of weeks’??

Could the earthquake on Israel’s 70th Independence Day be of significance not to Iran alone, but to Israel too in showing that God is acting in its history and clearly pointing to the great importance of the Jeremiah 70 years and the Daniel 70 ‘years’???

Also, does what Veronika West heard, “The nations of the earth are being perfectly aligned with heaven’s time”, have anything to do with the periods prophesied by Jeremiah and Daniel? I believe it does.

We must consider this further…

Mark’s opinion here is of interest relating to the prophecies in not only Daniel chapters 7 & 8 but also in Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

So what happened? According to Israeli authorities an Iranian drone flew into Israeli airspace yesterday. Israel responded with some F-16’s taking out the drone. (By the way, military drones are not the little 4- or 6-propellar toys we see flying around in the local news—they are unmanned aircraft which can be as large as manned fighters themselves.)

An antiaircraft missile launched from Syria downed one of the F-16s while in Israeli airspace. Israel then responded by taking out targets on the ground in Syria they thought were responsible for launching the drone and the missile.

This Reuters article summarizes everything nicely.

Some news sites on the web made it sound like a great battle leading to the start of a new war. I believe this is nonsense. This was Iran and her…
