Prophetic Scripture Update #6 & Mid-East update #4: JER-USA-LEM

Featured

The oracle of the word of the LORD affirming 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 drunkenness (‘threshold of shivering’) to all surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.
‘And it shall happen in that day that will I make Jerusalem a very heavy (burdensome) stone for all peoples: all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered (together) against it”. (Zechariah 12:3 NKJV with KJV per Hebrew)

Today President Trump is expected to make an announcement on the United States’ official recognition of Jerusalem as capital of the State of Israel as well as decision to relocate the US embassy there. (Two minutes after posting and closing down for day I turned on 6 o’clock BBC New to see him ‘Live’ in the White House. Thurs: amended this post’s title spelling and adjusted opening of Zech 12 to match Hebrew see here.)

Let’s look at some of the headlines over the past week relating to developments in fulfilling Biblical prophecy in that nation and the Middle-East:

First, we must refer to the concurrent ‘coincidental’ events that William Koenig noted as a result of his observations over the past 20 years and concluding there’s a direct correlation in connection with ‘peace talks’ on dividing up the land.

Also see Cranmer’s article/discussion The whole world should recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital – simply because it is!

Middle-East update #1 – events around last Thursday’s post

This is first of three overviews of events in the Middle-East before leading into a consideration of how they relate to the ‘Four Signposts’ approach to Bible prophecy. We will look more closely at Jordan and dip into reports on Saudi Arabian involvement in the Israel-Palestine peace process and with Iran.

Events continue to accelerate at breathtaking speed and I will present a mix of comments and bullet-point headlines for ease of reading. Links are shown for those wishing to read in more depth and consult the source material.

NCIS fans will recall Gibb’s Rule #39: ‘There’s no such thing as a coincidence!’ – or, as in my reply to a reader’s recent comment, “Coincidences are ‘spooky’ action in time” (a play upon Einstein’s reaction to quantum physics’ hypothesis of ‘entanglement’, ie. non-local correlative ‘communication’ between photons of light and sub-atomic particles).

A BRIEF RECAP

Apart from the ‘God-incidence’ of two delegates who’d heard the same teaching, writing on the same day on the same topic – the need for ‘air supremacy’ when prophesying –  this time last week I submitted a very brief outline of major developments in the Middle-East since September 2015. It included reports of visits of a delegation of Christians to meet the leaders of Egypt and Jordan, as well as a UK prophet’s bringing the Lord’s words to diplomats at the UN in Geneva, including Donald Trump’s personal envoys.

For readers who’ve not yet read Paws 4 Thought, my premise follows the ‘coincidental’ similarity 14 years to the day between the infamous 9/11 attack upon the twin towers in New York and a severe lightning strike upon a crane, causing it to crash onto Mecca’s  Grand Mosque and thereby killing over 100 people.

A ‘coincidental connection’ between those tragedies in New York and Mecca is the Bin Ladin family by virtue of their Binladin construction group owning that crane and of their  notorious son Osama having been the leader of Al Qaeda.

JORDAN ON-THE-GROUND

I wondered if Joel Rosenberg’s report of visiting Jordan accurately paints the picture in view of strong discrimination against those who become  Christians (secret police watch ex-Muslims). I’m grateful to friends who’ve been there allowing me to share their response to my blog of his news:

‘Thank you for this. It is of course wonderful to have any connection with the head of a Moslem country; nevertheless I wonder whether Joel Rosenberg knows the following:-
Christians can’t go to the camp that the delegation visited, since the men are beaten up and the women raped; they therefore have to sleep on church floors, pavements, or if lucky in a run-down room with no heating. They are cared for by local churches.
Syrian refugees are paid 250 Jordanian Dinars a month in perpetuity by UNHCR (about £150), whereas Syrian Christian refugees receive 10 dinars a month per family member AND only for six months! Iraqis, whether Christian or not receive nothing, and are moreover not allowed to work in Jordan. There is evidence that Moslem admin. officials report Christian refugees to the secret police. Those really in danger of course are those who convert from Islam, and we were moved by all those who came to our conference at some danger to themselves.’

WASHINGTON ROUND-UP

From his desk as an accredited correspondent in the White House, William Koenig gives an exceptionally extensive round-up of the week’s Middle-Eastern news in his ‘Eye-View’ of last Friday (also see World Watch Daily). In Bill’s words it was ‘another breathtaking prophetic week in the Middle-East’.:

‘INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE’
  • ‘President Donald Trump, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, Saudi Crown Prince Mahmoud bin Salman and Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri were the talk of the Middle East the past week.
  • Crown Prince Mahmoud rounded up Saudi princes and businessmen and imposed travel curbs in his fight over corruption.
  • Saad Hariri resigned from his position over fear of assassination by Hezbollah and gave a scathing speech about Iran and Hezbollah.
  • Iran’s foreign minister blamed Jared Kushner for the Salman and Hariri activities.

POLITICO wrote,President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner returned home Saturday, Oct. 29 from an unannounced visit to Saudi Arabia — his third trip to the country this year…

David Ignatius, a long time Washington Post reporter and Saudi expert, pointed to Donald Trump’s and Jared Kushner’s alleged influence in his article, The Saudi crown prince just made a very risky power play

“MBS [Crown Prince Salman] is emboldened by strong support from President Trump and his inner circle, who see him as a kindred disrupter of the status quo — at once a wealthy tycoon and a populist insurgent. It was probably no accident that last month, Jared Kushner, Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, made a personal visit to Riyadh. …MBS would probably be flattered to be described as a Saudi Trump. But Xi and his anti-corruption power play may be the real role model.”

Peace front:
  • The Trump team seems determined to forge a comprehensive peace deal between Israel, the Palestinians and the Sunni Arab world.
  • Egyptian President al-Sisi met with the Palestinian President Abbas on Monday, and King Salman of Saudi Arabia met with Abbas on Tuesday to discuss American-sponsored peace talks.
  • Former Haaretz journalist and now Channel 10 correspondent Barak Ravid wrote about “Trump’s mystery plan for Mideast peace,” which is expected early next year…:
  • ‘Israeli and Palestinian officials expect President Trump to unveil a Mideast peace proposal by early next year…
  • ‘The U.S. “peace team” working on the issue is relatively small and very discreet — just five people, including senior adviser Jared Kushner and special envoy Jason Greenblatt. The entire process is being run out of the White House, with the State Department and other agencies providing advice and support. According to U.S. officials, Trump is the driving force on this issue and is personally involved. Israeli officials say they hear Trump is pushing his team to have a proposal soon.
  • ‘In the last nine months Trump has met Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Palestinian President Abbas separately three times each to discuss his peace initiative
  • ‘Greenblatt’s last trip to the region lasted three weeks, and Kushner, who is officially leading the “peace team,” came to the region three times and spends hours every week in phone calls with Arab leaders in order to get their support.
  • ‘The small, close-knit team has meant almost no leaks and zero public scandals, mistakes or embarrassments…’
What they’re saying:
  • Netanyahu told U.K. Prime Minister May last week that he’s in ‘wait and see mode’ and expecting a proposal late this year or early next year, according to Israeli and British officials. “I don’t know what peace plan Trump is about to present and I am not sure anybody knows, but I am happy the Trump team is bringing fresh and out of the box thinking on this issue,
  • Abbas told a group of former Israeli members of Knesset that he expects a plan later this year and that Trump has told him he supports the two-state solution and is planning to make his position public soon, according to people present at the meeting.
  • A White House official says there is no artificial deadline and the goal is to ‘facilitate a deal that works for both Israelis and Palestinians, not to impose anything on them’.
What to watch:
  • Trump is counting on Saudi Arabia to help get both the Israelis and Palestinians to say yes to any initiative. Kushner builds on his close relationship with the Saudi crown prince Mohamed Bin Salman as a conduit for a much bigger Saudi role in the peace process than ever before…President Abbas was in Riyadh earlier this week to talk about the peace process with the Saudi leadership.
  • Vice President Mike Pence will visit in mid-December and meet with both Netanyahu and Abbas and likely urge the parties to go back to the negotiating table.
  • Netanyahu’s political situation could be destabilized by a peace plan that includes Israeli concessions on politically charged issues, like borders, settlements and the future of Jerusalem. .
  • Abbas is in the midst of implementing a reconciliation deal with his rival party Hamas. The deal, which was led by Egypt with quiet support from the White House, includes the gradual transfer of control over the Gaza strip back to the Palestinian authority. A collapse of this agreement could have serious implications on any push for a peace deal.

Another breathtaking prophetic week in the Middle East – news and timeline

  • Wed Nov 1: Putin positions himself as Middle East broker as US retreats; visits Tehran Times of Israel
  • Wed Nov 1: IAF strikes Syrian munitions factory, Syria retaliates – Ynet
  • Sat Nov 4: Lebanese prime minister resigns, saying his life in danger – Ynet
  • Sun Nov 5: Saudi prince Salman rounds-up of Saudi princes, businessmen widens, travel curbs imposed – Reuters
  • Sun Nov 5: Hariri’s speech: An accurate description of Israel’s northern challenges – Ynet  Analysis: The Lebanese prime minister’s resignation concludes a week of turbulent events in the region, which all point to the extremely explosive situation created by the Iran-Syria-Hezbollah axis and, most importantly, mark the end of the civil war in Syria and its implications on Lebanon. Israel’s finest speech writers couldn’t have produced a better speech for Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri against Hezbollah and Iran.
  • Mon Nov 6: Egypt’s Sissi vows push to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace talks  Times of Israelin a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Sharm el-Sheikh on Monday, said he remains committed to bringing Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table.
  • Tue Nov 7: Abbas speaks with Saudi king Jerusalem Post...informed [Salman] of the latest developments related to the Palestinian issue, American efforts to advance the peace process and… national reconciliation,
  • Tue Nov 8: White House Statement on Iranian-Supported Missile Attacks Against Saudi Arabia 
  • Tues Nov 8 – President Trump’s North Korean warning speech in Seoul, Korea  White House transcript.
  • Thu Nov 9: Trump may have pushed Saudi Arabia and Iran closer to war  CNBC.  Koenig quotes CNBC.com senior columnist Jake Novak’s Commentary in some depth: ‘As I noted when he was first put in his top position by his father King Salman in June, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman was already known as a hardcore hawk against Iran. Just a month before he was made crown prince, bin Salman declared that peace dialogue with Iran was impossible…More aggressive anti-Iranian hawks like bin Salman may have seen Donald Trump’s election as an excuse to win the day over more dovish princes and ministers. And the White House seemingly gave Saudi Arabia a green light…Step four seems to have come in September, when bin Salman reportedly secretly visited Israel to discuss Iran and other potential cooperative measures. Neither country is officially acknowledging that visit took place, but at least one Israeli government source confirmed the meeting last month…And now we’re on the step five, which appears to be a combination of the purge to remove any possible internal hurdles towards a greater anti-Iranian push, and blatant protests against any real or perceived Iranian aggression.

Is Saudi Arabia pushing Israel into war with Hezbollah and Iran?

  • Koenig: ‘This is an interesting perspective from Obama’s former ambassador to Israel.’  In Haaretz Daniel B. Shapiro is Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv, asks, ‘What connects Lebanese PM Saad Hariri’s sudden resignation and Hezbollah’s assassination threat with Saudi Arabia and Israel? It’s all about Iran.
  • ‘But Israel must not be maneuvered by an impatient Riyadh into a premature confrontation…Hariri has long known that as prime minister, he lived on borrowed time. At Hezbollah’s whim, at any moment, his father’s fate could become his own. It’s fair to say that the assassination attempt he alluded to in his resignation announcement represented a death threat he always faced. It was only a question of when Hezbollah would choose to operationalize it. 
  • ‘The bigger question is whether his resignation is a sign that the Saudis withdrew their support for him once again. At first blush, that would not seem consistent with King Salman and MBS’s overall desire to confront Iran’s proxies on every front…’
  • ‘But it is plausible that the Saudis are trying to create the context for a different means of contesting Iran in Lebanon: an Israeli-Hezbollah war….’

Network ‘gremlins’ block comment on Boris, BBC & Balfour post

Being away from 10 o’clock on duties at Acorn after having published the previous post on Boris, BBC and Balfour Declaration I was unaware of a most informative comment submitted by Dave Chapman about half-an-hour later. It’s presented a fascinating but annoying bit of bother: something or someone somewhere read it and decided to block its appearance! That is, you cannot yet read his remarks at the foot of that post because WordPress is malfunctioning?

Could that be just sheer coincidence?  Let’s not get paranoid, but it reminds me of when my blogging about Iran’s rehearsals to attack Israel was affected (as here).

However, I was able to update that post with these appended notes which I’d started but had to amend, and added screenshot to confirm I’m not imagining this malfunction:

‘Also, please note Comments below from Dave Chapman, to which I’m about to reply in some detail…WHOA THERE! – MOST PECULIAR: although I saw them in an email alert to my phone timed at 10:35 (read approx 14:30 half-mile away and am now back home on PC), his message does not appear either at the foot of this post as usual, or in my admin screen’s listing of comments – yet it is flagged atop home page’s Recent Comments sidebar (as shown below)!

‘MOREOVER that email alert hasn’t downloaded to my PC (stop press: just in at 15:30 but no change on WordPress). So is someone, somewhere censoring and blocking his truthful material ??  WEIRD!’

Now past 17:00hrs we’ll solve the problem by copying the email alerting me to Dave Chapman’s comments:

So I emailed Dave direct with this reply (links added):

‘Thanks for taking time to go into details as I’d hoped on Monday to have been able to update readers on Trump by using material in Saturday’s ‘Koenig’s Eye View at White House’. In the light of his research since early 1990’s, I’m well aware of the correlation between talks to divide the land that biblically is to be Israel’s and the severe weather in USA. It’s so empirically observable that it’s almost scientifically demonstrable fact!

‘Here’s Bill Koenig’s latest on that scenario:

Trump’s Middle East peace plan is revealing. Has “Eye to Eye” made a difference?

‘The Times of Israel said Sunday that the Trump administration would shortly unveil a formal proposal for Middle East peace that aims to enable a “comprehensive regional arrangement,” but that it will not be imposed on the sides, and that it will not feature a rigid timetable. An administration official told The Times of Israel, however, that there were no imminent plans to present a proposal.

‘I prayed that President Trump would read my Sept. 6 letter and review “Eye to Eye”  [Bill’s book] and/or at least talked to staff about the book…to let the president know of the consequences of dividing God’s land. Additionally, I have also been told that people have written the White House about Israel’s covenant land…

‘President Trump has been expected to provide a comprehensive regional plan since his meetings with Arab leaders in Riyadh in May and at the UN in September. If he didn’t come forth with at least some plan, this would not bode well for him and Jared Kushner, after they showed such enthusiasm towards a comprehensive Middle East plan and deal. Moreover, President Trump doesn’t want to stop his tough talk or negate his credibility and/or reputation amongst Sunni Arab leaders which could further complicate his Iran and North Korea actions and decisions.

‘However, the fact a regional arrangement will not be “imposed” or that there would not be a “rigid timetable” is big news. In other words, they’re backing off the pressure, which is key. Plus, no imminent plans to present a proposal is also very favorable.’ (Emphasis RB’s)

This month’s critical convergence of historical cycles

AN EXTRA-SPECIAL THANKYOU TO EVERYONE WHO SIGNED UP IN EARLY 2012!

A month after launching this blog in late November 2011, I introduced my first readers to accredited Christian journalist and ‘Watcher in The White House’, William Koenig in Points to Ponder: 2011-2012 and Biblical Historical/ Financial Cycles. This referred to his four-year investigation of the work and predictions of the financial markets technical analyst Eric Hadik. (Read About William Koenig and Who is Eric Hadik?)

Erik Hadik built his renowned expertise upon W.D. Gann’s work on market cycle theories based upon his discoveries of mathematical-geometrical principles in the Bible!  Erik’s material is published at Inside Track Trading. (My very brief introduction to cycles may be read in the blog’s God-incidences hub.)

After closely following Hadik’s application of those theories to natural and social events, Bill published his findings simultaneously with the launch of Jonathan Cahn’s bestseller The Harbinger and attested to having “found (Hadik’s) calculations extremely accurate”. So, it certainly seems the Lord wants His people to learn about these matters.

Before proceeding and if having time and inclination, you may want to get ‘up to speed’ by scanning through my brief blogs on Cycles & The Bible and The Natural Year. I’d like to  draw your attention to Erik’s evidence for his thesis on Historic Aprils For USA & Israel. This has led him to dub today, April 19th and the days thereabouts, as being a “Date of Infamy for America”!

Digging into those links will give good grounding for Bill’s comprehensive compilation from four of his 2016-17 reports in.:

The Converging of Major Historical Patterns in 2017-18 and Jewish New Year 5777

(Read document by clicking/tapping title.) This paper focuses upon the significance of 2017/5777 as regards the land of Israel, biblically and geographically. In conjunction with data from Erik Hadik, Bill covers these excitingly informative topics in detail:

  • Donald Trump born exactly 700 days before Isarel became a nation
  • On first day in office POTUS Trump was 70 years, 7 months, 7 days old
  • America’s 45th President, Isaiah 45 and 44:28; Tim La Haye study notes
  • Jubilee Year and liberation of Jerusalem 1917 & 1967 (50 years) in depth
  • Five potential major developments in US-Israel relations in 2017
  • Orthodox Jews believe Messiah’s appearance possible in 2017
  • Biblical origins of 70-nation anti-Israel Paris conference
  • Several scheduled astronomical events are Biblically relevant
  • Convergence of 25, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 100 year cycles re Jerusalem
  • Culmination of four major 70-year cycles from 1948 to 2018
  • 7-year cycle from the beginning of the ‘Arab Spring’
  • Computers and technology 70-year cycle.

Last weekend’s Koenig’s Eye View from the White House provides a detailed list of critical events in April 2016, plus timeline of them within this current April – of which we’re all too well aware!

Bill asks, “Were the last two weeks of April 2016 the most prophetically significant period in history?”

Typically, he provides a  detailed analysis of their events and regards this present time as being, “Another prophetically pivotal month: many major headlines and news of final-day nations that will play out in the rest of April” (ie. 2017).

So in this light, it’s very poignant that yesterday Prime Minister Theresa May announced her decision to hold a snap general election on 8th June, thereby thwarting ‘Remoaners’ plans and thus strongly forging ahead with Brexit!

And today she got the backing of MPs by an overwhelming 522 to 13 votesApril 19th, an exceptionally historic day for the UK!

MOST EXCELLENT!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Neville Johnson: new edition of ‘Our Finest Hour’ – warning re. USA

Received news this morning from Mark Johnson at The Academy of Light in Australia of the latest e-magazine of insights from renowned prophetical voices. It has an extra item about one of the anti-christ spirit’s current activities in the USA (the Official War Against Trump), to which my Footnote refers:

‘Winds of change are now blowing across the world and the church. This year will see enormous changes occurring across nations, affecting people and the church of Jesus Christ. Birth pangs are now beginning in earnest, with contractions coming more quickly. The whole of creation is groaning and this is a reflection of the battle between light and darkness.

‘God’s word makes it very clear that the true church will reach its greatest glory during the darkest times that this world has ever known.  It is of great significance that the best wine has been reserved for this generation. Many things have been reserved for this last generation which can be distilled into one word, fullness. The cup of iniquity is filling up and the fullness of God’s purposes for the church is now upon us. The fullness of our salvation, that perfect man is about to emerge.

‘Til we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: (Ephesians 4:13)

‘I trust that you will enjoy and be blessed by this edition of Our Finest Hour.’

Blessings
Neville Johnson

Footnote (RB):

In my coverage of Obama’s Cairo Speech of July 2009 I expressed reservations about the claims of that new president of the United States being a brother in Christ. Also noted was his favour upon the notorious Muslim Brotherhood, the extremism of which I’d read in Egyptian Mark Gabriel’s personal account Islam and Terrorism. (He’s a former professor of Islam and of Islamic history at the prestigious Al-Azhar university – see this post).

I do not wish to be judgmental yet had noted knowledgeable writers’ assertions of Obama being a crypto-Muslim, or even Antichrist itself. The overwhelming evidence of his two terms supports the sentiment of such claims of his furtherance of the Antichrist’s agenda; not only against the nation he led, and especially Bible-believing Christians, but also against the Jewish nation of Israel – and in doing so brought the Genesis 12 curse for failing to bless those people upon the American people.

Read in the download of that ‘yesterday’ man’s reprehensible activities in Organising For Action, along with George Soros’ United To Protect Democracy, in plotting to sabotage his duly elected successor President Donald Trump. Never in the history of modern America have such undemocratic, marxist-style activities been undertaken and countenanced.

Read more about this in Paul Sperry’s Opinion in New York Post, which is quoted by William Koenig from his desk in the White House. In his Eye-View, Bill also cites Christian Post on Obama’s lifelong friend, marxist (?) fellow-traveller and supposed clergyman, Jim Wallis, as starting a witch-hunt against true, righteous Christians!  This crank claims White Evangelicals Voting for Trump Represents “A Crisis in the Church”!!

Preceding those two items quoted at length and under the sub-head Obama Called Himself a Christian, but:  Bill also cites dozens of examples of Obama’s deliberate failure to uphold Christian beliefs, twisting of scripture and causing deep damage to the church and Christians – not to mention Obama’s refusal to stand against persecution of Christians!!!

In view of recent words on the parable of wheat and tares now coming into play, perhaps the Lord is already arranging for the extraction of those tares from His harvest?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

UPDATE: read Prophetical Significance of PM May’s Speech in Philadelphia, and note its prophetical jigsaw-pieces.

Personal Note

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

Yet it was even more so when we heard Lydia!  We got exciting confirmation of what Nina had seen at the start of Trooping the Coloura scrolling text, “This is My country”!  Little wonder our front-row reactions at the climax of Lydia’s delivery:

Isaiah 45, king Cyrus and Donald Trump : plus Obama’s P45!

Thank you to Mark Maddock for this contribution and I add some thoughts by Bill Koenig. Many readers are now, I expect, familiar with this scripture, but Mark includes a very good item on Comet P45 – itself a very appropriate reference because UK firms issue Form P45 (pay and tax data) to employees upon cessation of work!

LOL – the heavens have issued Barack Obama and staff with their P45!

Context Isaiah 44; all about Israel; v.23: ‘God’s glory is on display in Israel.

Isaiah 45 – The God Who Forms Light and Darkness & His message to Cyrus, a pagan world leader.

24 God, your Redeemer,
who shaped your life in your mother’s womb, says:
“I am God. I made all that is.
With no help from you I spread out the skies
and laid out the earth.”

25-28 He makes the magicians look ridiculous
and turns fortunetellers into jokes.
He makes the experts look trivial
and their latest knowledge look silly.
But he backs the word of his servant
and confirms the counsel of his messengers.
He says to Jerusalem, “Be inhabited,”
and to the cities of Judah, “Be rebuilt,”
and to the ruins, “I raise you up.”
He says to Ocean, “Dry up.
I’m drying up your rivers.”
He says to Cyrus, “My shepherd—
everything I want, you’ll do it.”
He says to Jerusalem, “Be built,”
and to the Temple, “Be established.”

45 1-7 God’s Message to his anointed,
to Cyrus, whom he took by the hand
To give the task of taming the nations,
of terrifying their kings—
He gave him free rein,
no restrictions:
“I’ll go ahead of you,
clearing and paving the road.
I’ll break down bronze city gates,
smash padlocks, kick down barred entrances.
I’ll lead you to buried treasures,
secret caches of valuables—
Confirmations that it is, in fact, I, God,
the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.
It’s because of my dear servant Jacob,
Israel my chosen,
That I’ve singled you out, called you by name,
and given you this privileged work.
And you don’t even know me!
I am God, the only God there is.
Besides me there are no real gods.
I’m the one who armed you for this work,
though you don’t even know me,
So that everyone, from east to west, will know
that I have no god-rivals.

I am God, the only God there is.
I form light and create darkness,
I make harmonies and create discords.
I, God, do all these things.

8-10 “Open up, heavens, and rain.
Clouds, pour out buckets of my goodness!
Loosen up, earth, and bloom salvation;
sprout right living.
I, God, generate all this.
But doom to you who fight your Maker—
you’re a pot at odds with the potter!
Does clay talk back to the potter:
‘What are you doing? What clumsy fingers!’
Would a sperm say to a father,
‘Who gave you permission to use me to make a baby?’
Or a fetus to a mother,
‘Why have you cooped me up in this belly?’”

11-13 Thus God, The Holy of Israel, Israel’s Maker, says:
“Do you question who or what I’m making?
Are you telling me what I can or cannot do?
I made earth,
and I created man and woman to live on it.
I handcrafted the skies
and direct all the constellations in their turnings.
And now I’ve got Cyrus on the move.
I’ve rolled out the red carpet before him.
He will build my city.
He will bring home my exiles.
I didn’t hire him to do this. I told him.
I, God-of-the-Angel-Armies.”

 14 God says:

“The workers of Egypt, the merchants of Ethiopia,
and those statuesque Sabeans (= your enemies)
Will all come over to you—all yours.
Docile in chains, they’ll follow you,
Hands folded in reverence, praying before you:
‘Amazing! God is with you!
There is no other God—none.’”

All who have raged against him
will be brought before him,
disgraced by their unbelief.
And all who are connected with Israel
will have a robust, praising, good life in God!

DOES THIS RELATE TO DONALD TRUMP IN 2017-2021?  Possibly!

Are we at similar time in world history?  Yes, definitely!

Ie. There is a set length of time from Cyrus’ proclamation up to 1948 (Israel set up as a nation again); then 1967 (Jerusalem taken as the capital city of the nation) and then up to the next key date: 2018 (which is during Trump’s presidency in America).

2018 – the next key event? We’ve had the nation set up; the capital city re-taken… now it is something connected with Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem.

If Trump is to act like a modern day Cyrus, then pray He will keep in step with God’s timetable and plans for Israel; in particular, what God wants to happen concerning ownership of and what is built on Temple Mount in the next 2 to 10 years.

P45  COMET  (Also called comet 45 P, or Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova)

p45

From A Place to Meet Jesus, a blog by Richard Gazowsky, California, Dec 30th2016

‘As you look at the title of this blog, you are wondering what the ‘P45 Comet’ means. NASA has just announced this comet will appear on New Year’s Eve. I believe this comet (which will be passing by our moon) is a physical sign by God of a spiritual turnaround. Sometimes when God gives us a sign like this it is very simple. All we have to do is believe to see the sign.

God has told me that on January 20, 2017, there will be a birth of something new in the earth ~ a “New Renaissance”. He gave me this word on April 20, 2016 and said this renaissance will start exactly nine months to the date. This of course was before the presidential election, and all of the things that have since happened concerning our country and this election.

Then God spoke to me that there would be a comet in the sky that would be a sign to the earth. Our next president will be the 45th president of the United States, and the Lord said to me, “To confirm that He is the right choice, Isaiah 45 speaks about the prophecy concerning Cyrus His anointed” (emphasis added). And now suddenly, before New Year’s Eve, we see that NASA has named the comet P “45”.

It seems that God is sending a message to the earth, and we all are privileged that He has given us advance knowledge that something mighty is about ready to happen ~ and that it is going to be a blessing to everyone of us!’

The comet with be even brighter around Feb 11th 2017.

A PROPHECY FROM LANCE WALLNAU (USA)

This is copied from Lance’s Facebook account and shared before the US presidential election:

‘I sent this prophetic prayer to Donald J. Trump via his partner and attorney Michael Cohen. It’s quite a great crowd of believers  in Carolina – a key State – who are part of this army rising up for America. Perhaps half this room was for Dr. Carson or other candidates. When I was done the majority was with me for reasons I share here.

I think this prophetic prayer timely, as at this time, Iowa polls are showing a slipping of support for Mr. Trump among Evangelicals who prefer Dr. Carson to Mr. Trump 33% to 18%. I think it’s time evangelicals had a conversation about the criteria for office we are looking for. We want the most evangelical choice. But what we should ask is “who has God anointed?”

Here’s what happened. I shared with this crowd an unusual experience I had the other night. I realized that the next President of the United States will be the 45th President. I got the urge to open up a new Bible that was sent to me as a gift. A Bible put together by Rabbis to give the full Hebrew expression of the New Testament to Christians. I sensed the Lord tell me to look at the 45th Chapter of Isaiah to see who the 45th President of the United States should be.

Isaiah 45:1 says…
“This is what the LORD says TO HIS ANOINTED, CYRUS, whose right hand I have grasped to subdue nations before him, as I strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him and gates that cannot keep closed.”

Cyrus his anointed? But Cyrus was not even a Jew. He was a foreigner. An outsider. But God raises up secular Kings and Rulers for the sake of His people. This was Churchill and Lincoln and even Reagan. God wants to keep the gates of heaven open over certain nations – hence Cyrus will see “gates that cannot keep closed.” The gates of Hell have plundered a lot of ground in America this past seven years. It’s time that the gates of Hell were plundered and things were restored in certain places. Heaven’s gates will open and Hell’s gates will not be able to stay locked.

Angels get involved with warfare to see the right person (even unbelievers) get into office. Gabriel told this to Daniel in Daniel 11:1 “In the first year of Darius the Mede, I arose to be an encouragement and a protection for him.” Darius and Cyrus were both rulers put into office by God for the sake of His people!

I told them my experience and asked them to consider standing behind Mr. Trump as he continues to step into the role of a rough reformer like Luther to take on the Political and establishment high places. He needs to continue his work as a divine wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness that has been like a witchcraft muzzling and intimidating the Christian community.

Mr. Trump is not as evangelical as the other candidates, but I’ve been with him twice. He fears God as best he knows Him and he is the only Cyrus I see fulfilling Isaiah 45 for the 45th President.

There will be great warfare over this election and over this man in particular. A full tilt $100 million media campaign is about to be unleashed to slander him. I want to see the #Trumptrain on track with God’s plan.

Will you join me in the warfare to establish a Cyrus in office for the sake of God’s people and purposes?

AS ONE!

NOTES FROM WILLIAM KOENIG

Koenig’s Eye View from the White House – 6 January 2017

America’s 45th US President; Isaiah 44:28 And Isaiah 45 Perspective

I am sharing the following for thought and prayer:

Isaiah 45 speaks of King Cyrus, an anointed deliver God used to bring the Jewish people back to the land of Israel and Jerusalem.

Trump has committed to moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. His selection of David Friedman to be his ambassador to Israel, has raised millions of dollars for Beth El, Yeshivas and settlement in Samaria. Friedman firmly stands for Israel’s right to Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem. Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, an Orthodox Jew, Trump’s family and Trump himself have given money to the settlement communities in Samaria.

The effects upon USA of Obama’s UNSC Resolution 2334

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

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

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

Eye to Eye

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

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

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

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

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

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

As America Has Done to Israel

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

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

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

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

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

OBAMA AND ISRAEL, STRIKE AND COUNTER-STRIKE

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

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

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

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

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

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

BREAKING NEWS: floods and associated 2017 prophetic word

Have just seen breaking news via World Watch Daily of a State of Emergency Declared for the Bay Area, California, as well as in Nevada because of deadly flooding.

calfflooding

During December, her burden for the United States increased greatly and Veronika West of Ignite Ireland Ministry issued warnings for California in particular. A few hours ago she posted the following on Facebook:

WATCH!! A YEAR OF WIND, FIRE AND WATER!!

In this Hour I see, The Lord shall rise up and make Himself known to His Anointed, those that have felt forgotten shall SHOUT for great JOY. Those that are living in deep darkness and deception will SUDDENLY see a great light, the Unbelievers, mockers and scoffers will have to take another look, the true Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation will put to shame those that think they know it all, YES I Prophesy this is a Year where we will see the Weak overpowering the strong, the foolish confounding the wise, Nations shall be shaken, shifted and sifted, and kingdoms shall be jolted and divided.

The Dead and dry bones that lay in the Valleys will SUDDENLY experience a fresh wind and a fresh fire.

Those who are unprepared for this unprecedented MOVE OF GOD will war against the powers of doubt, unbelief and fear, many will have more questions than answers, many will run looking for peace and but find none.

BUT! For Those who are hidden in Christ they will gain greater strength, wisdom, revelation and supernatural power, NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM.

GET READY!! FOR THIS YEAR WILL BE KNOWN AS THE YEAR OF WIND, FIRE AND WATER, WE WILL SEE THE SPIRIT OF GOD MOVE SUDDENLY, THE FIRES OF HEAVEN WILL FALL STRATEGICALLY AND THE WATERS OF THE EARTH WILL RISE QUICKLY AND UNEXPECTEDLY.

WATCH! IT HAS ALREADY BEGUN TO TAKE PLACE.

5777-elements

We need to pray for those who are affected and helping in this tragic situation.

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

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

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

us-israel-flags

There is good news to report as 2017 begins.

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

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

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