LATEST on Iran’s dual-strategy against halting nuclear accord

Further to my re-blog of Joel Rosenberg’s report on Secretary Pompeo’s speech on the USA’s new strategy on dealing with the Iranian regime, this morning’s pre-mainstream media news reveals the latter’s dual-strategy. It involves not only installing new surface-to-air missile batteries around their nuclear enrichment facilities at Natanz to protect from any Israeli and/or US attack, but also giving European powers an ultimatum!

According to DebkaFile, yesterday Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei, ‘tried to counter Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s ultimatum with his own for the European powers, the UK, France and Germany, which are trying to save the 2015 nuclear deal after the US walkout.

‘The dictats he put before them included:

  • ‘European banks must safeguard trade with Iran, and
  • ‘stop seeking new negotiations on Iran’s ballistic missile program and regional Middle East activities to gratify the US president.
  • ‘The Europeans must further guarantee Iran’s oil sales and compensate Tehran for losses incurred from US sanctions.
  • ‘If Europe fails to meet Khamenei’s demands, Iran will go back to enriching uranium, effectively turning its back on the 2015 nuclear deal.’

The Debka report concludes, ‘Israel is now back to square one, ie. 2012, when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Ehud Barak, then defense minister, and Eliezer Shekedi, air force chief at the time, had girded Israel up for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, only to be held back by the Obama administration’s push for nuclear negotiations with Tehran.’

I note CBS News reported Monday in European Allies Alarmed...‘Reacting to Pompeo’s speech, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson committed to shielding European companies from renewed sanctions. “We are going to do everything we possibly can,” Johnson said of protecting European companies. “I’m not totally pessimistic about the situation.” Johnson said a “new jumbo Iran negotiation” would not be “very easy to achieve.”

‘For the time being, at least, Europeans are not shrinking away from the JCPOA. Federica Mogherini, the high representative of the European Union, explained that Europeans will remain committed to “full and effective implementation” of the JCPOA so long as Iran upholds its commitments. She also explained that Europeans are still unsure of the U.S. rationale for leaving the deal. (She said Monday) “Pompeo’s speech has not demonstrated how walking away from the JCPOA has made or will make the region safer from the threat of nuclear proliferation or how it puts us in a better position to influence Iran’s conduct.”

Such clueless comments arise from failing to follow God’s written word, thereby gaining an appreciation of His purposes in establishing the Jewish state of Israel. In view of this blog’s material on the EU, the perplexity of its ‘high representative’ is not surprising and suggests an influence from elsewhere! (God’s ‘Sign-language’: follow-up to EU-web #2… refers.)

Any intelligent person, knowing how assiduously the homicidal thug Saddam Hussein sought to build nuclear weapons and missiles, only to be prevented by the second Gulf War, would be extremely wary of all other fanatics’ surreptitious schemes and strategies to do the same; especially when consistently proclaiming their aim of destroying Israel. [Saddam’s Secrets by the Christian Iraqi air vice-marshal and general Georges Sada, pp 71 & 200 and chapter 10 refers in detail to WMD, confirming Debka’s early intel on hidden transfers of weapons to Syria – thank you again Debbie!]

Acceleration of Biblical End-times events is speeding up!

Upon hearing presenter J.D. Farag’s opening remarks in Sunday’s Mid-East Prophecy Update I was instantly reminded of these intertwined personal revelations:

  1. after being stunned upon hearing,“This is ALL about to be fulfilled” (see The Endgame Is Now In Play) I started monitoring current events more closely, and
  2. noted those related to Bible prophecies occurring with an increasing rapidity!!

This pastor of Calvary Chapel Kaneohe in Honolulu catches everyone’s attention with,

“As I was preparing for today’s Prophecy Update I was struck with how swiftly everything is happening – how fast everything is speeding up. To me, it’s almost as if world leaders are being motivated by some force to move quickly, and to strike while the proverbial iron is hot.

“So, what I want to talk about today is what seems to be this global expediting – of sorts – and in so doing I want to answer the question of ‘Why the fulfillment of Bible prophecy is on fast-forward?’

“I’ve used that illustration before – I do not see anyone or anything being able to push the pause button on how fast things are going. Rather, I see it as someone pushing the fast-forward button – things are moving so fast, so fast!”

What’s especially fascinating is mainstream media is now referring to unexpected turns in geopolitical events and changes in their anticipated timing, to which the Pastor  refers (quoting his downloadable Update; bold emphases his, underlining mine):

  • “Jerusalem Post asks why is the US speeding up its Jerusalem embassy move?
    “The State Department’s announcement …that it will essentially move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in phases, with the first stage to begin as early as May to coincide with Israel’s 70th Independence Day, is a significant shortening of the timeline. So what happened? Why now has the US decided to at least call the current consulate in Jerusalem an embassy and move Ambassador David Friedman and some of his staff to the location by mid May?”…
  • “On Thursday, Arutz Sheva published a report that the Czech President wants the move of their embassy to Jerusalem expedited...
  • “Speaking of the expediting prior to this May, I’m sure that you, like me, were quite stunned by the sudden breaking news that North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un and the U.S. President Donald Trump have agreed to meet prior to May…While the announcement was sudden, Trump…earlier had made a surprise appearance in the White House press briefing room to promise that South Korea would soon make a “major announcement”. …welcomed this …as “very positive”, implying that he believes he is on the verge of a swift and unexpected breakthrough for his so-called “maximum pressure campaign” to force Kim to accept disarmament talks…Thursday, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi…called for Washington and the North “to engage in dialogue sooner rather than later.”
  • “According to Reuters…that Russia, Iran and Turkey aren’t going to wait for May, and instead, will meet next month in April. It’s rumored that Putin, Rouhani and Erdogan who “cooperate closely on Syria”, will (discuss) the situation in Syria.
  • “On Friday, Arutz Sheva published an article about how, in the era of Trump, time is no longer on the side of the Palestinians…quote Education Minister Naftali Bennett as saying President Trump has fundamentally changed the equation in negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. According to the Jewish Home chief, President Trump’s historic December 2017 declaration recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and announcing plans for the relocation of the US embassy removed any incentive for the PA leadership to delay final status talks, potentially making negotiations with Israel more likely. The declaration, argued Bennett, has the potential to “allow, or accelerate peace, or enable peace …The Palestinians…over the past 50 years, had a very simple strategy. Time was on their side, so they’ll just wait. And every time they wait, they get a better deal. If you look through ’93, through 2000, in 2007 the deal just got better. So why not wait? What he’s actually done is reverse that vector, that trend, and suddenly, the Palestinians realize that time is not necessarily on their side, and maybe they should start moving.”

PLUS, the PA leader’s health is not good, yet he’s adamant in refusing to change his mind; so his death will unquestionably be a game-changing event!

Pastor stresses (emphases mine), “It’s important to note specific phrases like speeding up, significant shortening of, expedited and accelerated in these reports because they all speak to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, revving up, as the Lord’s return is fast approaching.  Actually, this is the answer to the aforementioned question of why it seems that everything is speeding up with such urgency.

NINE YEARS AGO:

As implied in the first paragraph, this vital topic of ‘acceleration’ got flagged up early in my private correspondence nine years ago when president Barack Obama had made an unprecedented, albeit temporary, U-turn in his attitude to Israel, as told in Israel’s PM Points to New Testament – Obama Does U-turn.  In it I quoted White House accredited Christian correspondent William Koenig:

Never before have we had so many biblically significant events evolving at such a rapid paceit requires a major effort and assistance in an attempt to stay up with them. Only a small percentage of people in the church and a very small percentage of people in the public know of the seriousness of the times…” (emphasis mine)

Only a few months later in asking Could This Weekend Change The World? I quoted his friend and co-author John McTernan’s opinion,

“Those that are anchored in the Bible and believe the prophetic word, understand what is happening. Events seem to be accelerating towards the Day of LORD. Our hope is in the Blessed Hope, the Lord Jesus coming for His church.” (emphasis mine)

Subsequently, the momentum gathered pace as the number of Biblically-related events heads towards a deluge as we approach the fulfillment of all Bible prophecy. So we can soon expect to see Biblical and contemporary prophetic words and visions converge to fulfill Holy Writ. As J.D. Farag concludes (note numbers for next post):

“Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.” (Revelation 22:7)

Selah!

GPS #13: Bible ‘Blueprint’ of four US leaders; Elisha anointing on Billy Graham’s passing; Alfred the Great (again!)

Let me run seemingly different yet closely timed events past you for consideration. They feature two pairs of ‘signals’ – one from USA (North Carolina & Alabama) and one from the UK (Bath & Liphook) – about three of the Lord’s ‘invisible jigsaw’ pieces.

My ears pricked up with surprise during the first when it connected with the prophetic dream in which Lana Vawser decreed a double-portion of the Elisha anointing being released upon Billy Graham’s going ‘home’ to be with the Lord.

Also, this first event or ‘piece’, repeated the well-known repentance scripture quoted in GPS#11 part 1: influx of calls to intercede for Britain.

It also made me wonder if recent reiteration of the significance of King Alfred the Great laying the Biblical foundations for a Christian nation of Great Britain has any bearing in this new data-set.

Here’s what happened:

1. A BIBLE BLUEPRINT

On Sunday afternoon we went online for Church of His Presence morning service (in Alabama) to see guest preacher Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn. He delivered a rapid and impassioned presentation of a new paradigm for understanding End-time events. This develops upon his profound insights logged in The Harbinger (published within weeks of my starting this blog).

Let’s go to the start of his fifty minutes message in this video (from 1hr12min):

Jonathan explains this new paradigm is a ‘Bible Blueprint’, by which not only the nature of major events but also their timings throughout the Clinton-Obama era closely align with those recorded in the OT’s Books of the Kings. The common denominator is Israel and America’s rejection of God by their ancient kings, especially Ahab, Jehoram and queen Jezebel, and by modern presidential persons!

ALL a very thought-provoking thesis that brings fresh understanding, especially of the deep similarities between king Jehu and Donald Trump and of their actions against both ancient and modern protagonists. It is well-worth watching.

One of the most severe similarities between then and now – unknown in modern times – is witches’ mass gatherings to curse America’s President!!  So he must be doing the right thing by God!

According to Jonathan’s thesis, the ‘paradigm’ (God’s sovereign will) and ‘harbinger’ (of judgement) timelines are merging and we’re being given a window in which to reform. So most importantly for us, what does this Bible Blueprint, or ‘paradigm’, say about our future – it brings both a warning and a key!  Jonathan stresses (from 1:43:30 – emphasis added),

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn“A window to repent – a window to speak the Word of God – a window for Revival – is exactly where we are now. Jehu, or Donald Trump, is not the answer, but he was used to open a window. There’s been a political change but there’s not yet been a cultural change and a spiritual change. No answer can be found in Washington or in Hollywood, but only in Revival, only in Revival…

“The Word of God tells us, ‘If My people who are called by My Name, will humble THEMselves, turn from their wicked ways…’ (2Chron 7:14-15 – per GPS#11 Part 1)

“The keys are there – ‘MY people’ – ‘IF’ – so we must pray like never before…and it’s time to start living in Revival because it will then begin…

(From 1:47:00) “There’s a paradigm inside the paradigm, a paradigm for the people of God – where we’re given the keys in how to prevail and overcome – the paradigm, ‘For such a time as this’ so you need to know the times so you can fulfill your Calling in these times...

“I can say this much: in the days when Biblical values and righteousness rule over a culture, the people of God have a ruling paradigm in the King David paradigm – but in the days when Biblical values and righteousness NO LONGER rule the culture – in the days when anti-Biblical values rule the culture, the days of an Ahab, a Jezebel, the people of God have a different paradigm – they have the Elisha paradigm: those days are NOW!

“Those days are now and this is our paradigm: Elisha was not the status quo, he was a radical, he was revolutionary – and that’s what we’re to become: not status quo but to become radical, to become revolutionary – these are the days when we must become a revolutionary people living with a revolutionary power, a revolutionary outlook, a revolutionary life!”

“Some of you may be afraid of the End-times – don’t be, because that’s where God put you!…”

2. THE ELISHA ANOINTING & BILLY GRAHAM’S PASSING

Jonathan’s is a most stirring message. His conclusion reminds me of what Australian Lana brought about the Lord’s action plan of pouring out a double-portion of the Elisha anointing after bringing Billy Graham to his heavenly home.

THEN this question came ‘out of the blue’ – a ‘jigsaw piece’?  As that relates to the USA, then could the groundwork laid by Alfred the Great be a ‘blueprint’ for Britain?  What a peculiar, but perhaps not preposterous, idea!

So it would seem both ‘pieces’ fit together : one, Jonathan’s message; the other of Billy Graham’s passing, and whose remarkable funeral we’d watched by live broadcast on Friday and noted that POTUS Trump and VP Pence with wives seated on the front row – plus Trump’s keen attentiveness to Billy’s adult offspring’s testimonies, especially Franklin’s address – which closed with an altar call.  It’s noteworthy that storm winds in the D.C. area almost prevented flights from the capital, whereas it was sunny and mild for the funeral in Charlotte, North Carolina!

Nina and I chatted about it with friends over coffee at church on Sunday. The husband reads this blog and remarked about the prophecies relating to Billy’s passing. We said we’d seen the funeral, that ‘Trump & Veep’ were attentive attendees and that Franklin invited those who don’t know Jesus to come to him – and upon so saying, two of us got hit by Holy Spirit: Nina got the usual ‘buzz’, needing her to hold a table to stop her falling; our friend, his usual ‘fuzz’ over head (like shivers or goose-bumps) in recognition that something’s most definitely of the Lord.

I chuckled because he’d already asked about the backgrounds of those whose material I quote, and on testing their prophecies. So we laughed and agreed what he was getting was a true test for those we’d just been talking about 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

3. KING ALFRED THE GREAT

Now, I take you from Sunday morning in Liphook to late afternoon at home (but 10am in Alabama):

As if in anticipation of my thoughts whilst watching Jonathan Cahn about King Alfred, a third ‘piece’ arrived by email during the service and awaited slotting into place within the ‘invisible jigsaw puzzle’.

Unable to enter a comment on the blog, Isabel writes from Bath city,

‘I was very interested to read the articles on Alfred the Great.  It reminded me to check my dream journal. I found an entry for 5th March last year, almost a year to date, concerning Donald Trump and Alfred the Great. Unfortunately I was unable to recall the detail of the dream, except that I heard a voice in the dream calling out “Alfred’s Law” over and over again. I knew nothing about Alfred the Great until I researched his heavenly visions to save Britain and his book of Law or the ‘judgement book’. Thank you for publishing these posts.’

Isabel’ s remark conjoining Trump and our Saxon king, and on the latter’s visions and book, mirrors Jonathan’s references and my musings. So a great big thank you goes to the Lord and to Isabel for confirming them – whatever next?

One further, fascinating ‘God-incidental’ point about Alfred – my photo is of the statue erected outside Winchester City council offices in Hampshire, the capital of Wessex and Saxon England – the recent prophetic word from across ‘the Pond’ relating to kingdom rulership (Moving From The Sword to The Sceptre) comes from Wanda Alger living in Winchester, Virginia, – out of all places in the United States!

Bring it on Lord…!!

Footnote: this post may not be a totally new, distinct instance of God’s Global Prophecy Signalling system as it relates on a couple of points to the much broader #12, but I’ve numbered it ‘#13′.  As both posts aren’t wholly independent let’s use bakers’ numbering and call them a ‘Barker’s Dozen’! 
LOL! – let’s be even more unusual, for now I grasp what an old personal prophetic picture may mean: a brother at the first class I attended under Revd Dr Sharon Stone gave me a peculiar picture of a conveyor belt with dozens of loaves on it – I was clueless about its meaning and don’t recall his comments.  Years later a friend gave us her home-baking machine. I tried it and have baked bread ever since and so presumed that’s what the prophecy’s about. But in using that baking term I now perceive it may mean the foreseen loaves I’m making and baking are the many blogs I post and which can feed others… So I trust you’re now well-fed 🙂

Fulfilled Prophecy #26 – Exposed: ‘coup’ threats against Brexit and against Trump

UTTERLY fantastic ‘coincidence’ with what I’ve prepared for publishing today, as though more pieces of God’s ‘Invisible Jigsaw’!  One warning of a possible coup d’etat, another of international meddling, both exposing corrupt and apparently centrally directed, anti-democratic chicanery on opposite sides of ‘The Pond’.

Daily Telegraph’s investigative journalists are to be warmly congratulated (click to read)

The strap-line and opening paragraph of this exclusive investigation read:

‘Billionaire financier Soros hosts campaign dinner to undermine May and keep Britain in the EU – George Soros, the billionaire known as the man who “broke the Bank of England”, is backing a campaign to overturn Brexit, the Telegraph can disclose.

‘The investor is one of three senior figures linked to the Remain-supporting campaign group Best for Britain who plan to launch a nationwide advertising campaign this month, which they hope will lead to a second referendum to keep Britain in the EU. The campaign is trying to recruit major Tory donors in an attempt to undermine Theresa May.

‘It also plans to target MPs and convince them to vote against the final Brexit deal to trigger another referendum or general election, according to a strategy document leaked from a meeting of the group….’ [NB: ‘premium’ content, but one item/week may be accessed free-of-charge.]

This isn’t entirely new because in Why Leave the EU? Jonathan Ely posted rumours of Soros’ interference in our democratic decision to leave the ‘Tower of Babel/Brussels’. Also, December’s issue of Christian Voice published an in-depth report on Soros’ pan-EU anti-Brexit web by Stephen Green (see Farage Exposes Soros Plotters). AND his dealings were exposed in June 2016 ( Is Brexit an ‘Act of God’? Yes, but it challenges Churches!).

ON THE OTHER SIDE OF ‘THE POND’

A fortnight ago today I blogged about corruption worse than the Watergate scandal surfacing, as another example of fulfillment of my prophetical musing about the exposure of rotten politics and corruption in the UK, USA – and EU? (Months later examples erupted here and here, then a year later here; others brought prophecies on it, as blogged here and here in November 2016 and here a year later.)

Thank you Jennie C and Lynne H for informing me of news emerging the day before my blog of Franklin Graham’s warning about the ‘Deep State Threat’ – even a ‘coup d’etat’ – against President Trump.

In recent months the so-called “deep state” has been all over the news in America. A WND report of January says, “Loosely defined, it’s the career bureaucrats who wield considerable influence on the policy and practice of the federal government. While the heads of agencies are political appointees changing with each president, “deep state” members, with their own political ideologies and agendas, remain.”

Last year, I had the pleasure of meeting Franklin at a dinner held on behalf of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and his famous international charity, Samaritan’s Purse.

Also, I recall Franklin having fallen foul of Obama’s policies in his first presidential term and I mentioned a couple of instances in an email of 2010 to friends: the Pentagon had withdrawn their invitation to attend a prayer breakfast and Muslim activists wanted him banned from attending America’s National Prayer Day!!! 

Yet he was one of several pastors who were invited to pray for Donald Trump at his Inauguration!

Fox News’ Franklin Graham Warns of Deep State Coup Against President Trump, is summarised as follows (courtesy Koenig’s Eye-View From The White House of 26 January, Bill’s emphases retained):

‘One of the nation’s most prominent Christian leaders said he fears President Trump is facing a grave domestic threat by forces who want to take over the White House.

“I believe we are in a coup d’etat,” Franklin Graham said Wednesday (24th) on the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “There are people in this country who are wanting to destroy the president and take over the government by force.

‘Graham revealed his concerns as congressional Republicans ramp up accusations that deep state actors within the FBI and the Justice Department may have been plotting against the president.

‘The evangelical leader did not name names, but he suggested the mainstream media was complicit in the silent coup. Click here to listen to the shocking interview.

“They are not going to use bullets. They are using the media – to plant thoughts in people’s minds that he’s incompetent, that he’s dangerous, that you can’t trust him with nuclear weapons, that he is mentally unstable,” Graham said.

‘Graham and other Christian leaders have been targeted in recent days by the mainstream media for their unwavering support of the president. Many have been accused of hypocrisy for backing a man who is accused of cheating on his wife and using profanity.

That was a fortnight ago. For an update, with interpretation for we Brits, on the situation let’s check out the lady journalist ‘going wherever the evidence leads’, Melanie Phillips. In last Sunday’s article on the now-famous Nunes Memo her analysis leads her to note and conclude:

‘Bottom line seems to me to be that the FBI and DoJ misled the FISA court by failing to provide it with information that seriously called into question the reliability of the evidence put to it to support the request for a surveillance warrant to spy on the Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page. That would seem to be, to put it mildly, a serious abuse of legal process which totally undermined the protection afforded to the public against abuse of the FISA surveillance powers designed to guard against terrorist offences

‘We don’t know anything like the full picture on all this and so must be cautious. It may be that further information will emerge which will radically change the story that’s now unfolding. But as things stand, it looks very much as if, under the Obama administration, certain senior figures in the FBI and DoJ corrupted the administration of law enforcement and subverted the US constitution.

‘This is deeply shocking, and Congress must now continue to place more information in the public domain so that we can all finally assess just what took place here and just how deep this most fetid swamp has become.’

It must NOT escape our attention that Soros and Obama are in cahoots as more-or-less leaders of the Organization for Action (OfA) – AND the Telegraph’s journalists point out its violent nature as witnessed in the US and warns of a distinct possibility of similar deliberately organised manifestations happening in Britain!

On the Soros meeting in London, those investigators tell of a leaked strategy document for a campaign to undermine Brexit that reveals,

‘…a series of Momentum-style mass rallies and concerts are planned and the campaign will have a “heavy youth focus”…and reveals a plan to  “pressure” MPs in 100 Leave-supporting constituencies and sets out how organisers have a range of guerrilla marketing tactics” to build momentum.

‘(Soros’) involvement comes more than 25 years after he made over £1 billion betting against the pound shortly before the UK withdrew from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism. More recently he has been accused of organising rallies against Donald Trump in the US and interfering in the democracies of several European nations.’ (Emphasis mine)

A year ago the New York Post, as part of the MSM not noted as a Trump supporter, reported on How Obama’s Scheming to Sabotage the Trump Presidency via the OfA.

As there’s no smoke without fire, maybe the Christian journalists who were deeply wary of the person and policies of the past American president, claiming he and Soros may be furthering the Antichrist’s agenda and strategies, could have discerned ‘the devil in the detail’?

Fulfilled prophecy #25 – worse than Watergate scandal surfacing

Maybe like me you’ve been ‘watching’ world events unfold since the start of this Second Millennium?

As in my ‘Bio‘, it all began for me as a non-Christian in the mid-80’s with reading The Invisible Hand and then noting events, especially after an astonishing dream in ’92 about the fall of Islam.

After hearing “This is ALL about to be fulfilled!”, and as that was in 2008 when Barack Obama was running for election as president, I paid closer attention to what was going on in the USA. Within months I started writing on End-times and Christian prophecy and had objections to his Cairo Speech and later asked, Is Obama’s Impeachment Now On The Cards? (2013).

A SCANDAL SO ENORMOUS

In ‘going where the evidence leads’ Melanie Philips, one of Britain’s leading columnists, writes this week (emphases mine),

‘If you are in Britain and relying on the BBC and mainstream media for your information, you probably won’t know that a political scandal has been developing in the Washington swamp which has the potential to make Watergate look positively puny by comparison. You probably won’t know that what passes for the accepted wisdom about President Trump may be in the process of being turned on its head.

‘The reason there’s been no news coverage is that it suggests Trump has been not the instigator but the target of collusion – between the FBI, the Justice Department, the Democratic party and the Russians, first to prevent him from being elected US President and then to lever him out of office…’

Melanie concludes,

‘If all this is true, it is one of the greatest political scandals in American history: the corruption by a sitting president of the top tiers of the security and justice establishment to pervert the course of justice to exonerate the Democratic presidential candidate of any crimes while simultaneously trying to frame her opponent; and then a further conspiracy between the Democratic party and administration officials to remove the duly elected President from office through an administrative coup based on a further criminal abuse of process.

‘Whether or not this turns out to be the case remains to be seen. But given what’s going on, the silence or muted disdain of most of the mainstream media in the US and their echo-chamber in Britain is remarkable. It is the most graphic evidence of a collective hysteria about Donald Trump which has effaced not just the tattered fragments of media objectivity but reason itself.’

Whatever’s she writing about?  Read the in-between bits of Melanie’s post by clicking on A scandal maybe SO enormous it has produced..silence and muted disdain.

THE OFFICIAL WAR AGAINST TRUMP

In his Introduction to Our Finest Hour issue 2:2 (March 2017) Neville Johnson writes, ‘The cup of iniquity is filling up and the fullness of God’s purposes for the church is now upon us.’  That issue closes with a special, extra item ‘The Official War Against Trump’. Barack Obama’s official post-presidential website features and describes ‘Organizing For Action’, and I understand it involves the billionaire George Soros.  My Warning Re USA briefly covers this matter.

BLOG BACKGROUND

As a result of a mix of events and visions, plus ‘gremlins’ when trying to email, in late May 2015 I mused upon ‘Is the Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? UK, USA – Next EU??’  And sure enough all sorts of rot started creeping out from the gutters the next year, as told in Fulfilled Prophecy #10; and confirmed by what Revd John Kilpatrick heard from the Lord on ‘An Eruption of Corruption’.  Then came news (here), followed by a vision received by Stuart Wentworth as Exposure of Sin, Corruption, Darkness as Sign of God’s Coming Glory.

“There’s going to be an eruption of corruption. There’s going to be an eruption of corruption.” (He said) “The nation will see it”. (John Kilpatrick 6Nov’16)

Thus began an avalanche of public exposure of deep-rooted sinfulness.  EG. greed and corruption rife across world football, Russian doping in sports, injustices in criminal inquiries and convictions (eg Hillsborough, Ted Heath inquiry) and Hollywood’s sex scandals etc etc. Hardly a week now goes by without such news in the headlines, thus fulfilling contemporary prophecies.

Bible Update: Genesis 12 – Dr Sharon Stone 2018 prophecy on the US Dollar

Now [in Haran] the LORD said to Abram, “Go for yourself [for your own advantage] away from your country, from your relatives and your father’s house, to the land that I will show you.

“And I will make of you a great nation and I will bless you [with abundant increase of favors] and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a blessing [dispensing good to others].

“And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] and curse him who curses or uses insolent language towards you; in you all the families and kindred of the earth will be blessed [and by you they will bless themselves].” (Gen 12:1-3 Amplified Bible)

All Christians who are keen on learning more about the gift of prophecy and the office of prophet are warmly advised to listen to Dr Sharon Stone’s wise instruction on receiving annual prophecies. Her wisdom and experience intersperse her update on an accurate prophetic word and sharing what she believes the Lord is saying for this year.

“I’ve been prophesying the words of the Lord for years and we have a lot of history that has already come to pass. One of the words that came to pass (prophesied at last year’s New Year’s Eve service) is that the embassy of the United States would be moved to Jerusalem!

“…The Philippines is now moving their embassy as are Hungary and Honduras…we will be talking about that in a moment…”

Whilst typing I’m listening to this video for the first time and, starting at 2:08, the next thing Sharon says is, “I want to talk about the only number that’s changed; number 8.”  She explains about its meaning as in the previous post.

Thank you to Sharon and Prophetic Voice TV for encouraging sharing these highlights of what she brought for 2018 across social media and in church communities.:

– God is going to put Israel on the map and in the headlines.

– The US dollar will rise!

– Anyone with investable income should look to invest in the US dollar as God will bless the American dollar for its dealings with Israel.

– More Nations will join the US in moving their embassies to Jerusalem.

– In 2017 God led you through closed doors but in 2018 God is going to lead you through open doors.

– in 2018 you have to be postured to take new territory, God is releasing a pioneering spirit upon the body of Christ.

– God is going to create a moral revolution on the seven mountains.

– Non-Christian movies are going to be made with a moral standard that are going to woo others towards God. The fear of the Lord is returning!

Although Genesis 12 isn’t necessarily referred to, its promissory declaration of the Lord – as well as other scriptures – is foundational to and implicit in the prophecy that Sharon says has been fulfilled and in what she heard on Israel and about America’s prosperity. (Those who understand Bible prophecy have already noted the latter as a consequence of President Trump aligning America more closely to Israel rather than being hostile, as was his predecessor.)

Dr Sharon’s word for 2017 was delivered in four parts, the first of which may be seen on YouTube here and watch The Soul of the Nations: Brexit & Presidential Election on what she foresaw about ‘Trump Triumph’ in November 2016.

Is Donald Trump God’s man for this time? Pray for his salvation?

Am sure you have your own ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answer to the above question, but the purpose of this post is so you can read brief correspondence on the issue and learn more about the man.  Moreover, as I was about to start writing I was nudged to check progress on a debate at Prophecy Today UK that I’ve been mulling over. I espied a thread by one of its contributors and thank the Lord and John Shipton for drawing attention to something I’d long forgotten.

Although I wanted to blog on a couple of other things (!), I’ve done some unscheduled research on what proves to be essential background data to this important issue.

Maureen commented upon the previous post on John Kilpatrick blessing Trump: ‘I do believe President Trump has been raised up by the Lord for this time. Pray he seeks to know Jesus as his saviour.’

My response: ‘Myself and many others agree with you Maureen, so forgive me if you’re already aware of these facts: 

‘There were unusually a good number of prayers – specifically in Jesus’ name – for him and the nation at his Inauguration, including by Franklin Graham, whom Obama disliked and got ‘disinvited’ from Pentagon prayer breakfasts! The lady who prayed for Trump is said to have led him to the Lord (See this recent Washington Post item She Led Trump To Christ but ignore image!).

‘You may know Vice-President Mike Pence is evangelical and he and POTUS regularly meet Christian leaders for prayer. It’s never been known for Christians to have such free access to all areas of the White House as under this administration. (I often refer to the long-time accredited Christian journalist William Koenig, who’s based there.)

‘ALSO, did you know Reuters cut their film feed during DT’s campaign because he was wearing a tallit and being given a Jewish Bible at a black church?? (Read last section of this post.)

This news last Thursday from one of my regular readers was new to me: “…watching Sky news last night (can’t remember who reported) but they referred to President Trump as a wrecking ball. This immediately rang bells but couldn’t remember so googled and it was Lance Wallnau: Why Trump is ‘God’s Chaos Candidate’ and ‘Wrecking Ball’.’ (An interview only).’

Read Lance’s full prophecy in Isaiah 45, King Cyrus and Donald Trump (19 January). In addition, we learn that Donald Trump has highly significant godly ancestry!

TRUMP’S CONNECTION TO THE HEBRIDEAN REVIVAL

Just days before Trump was inaugurated BBC Songs of Praise from The Hebrides, off-shore from Scotland’s west coast, looked at his maternal ancestry on the Isle of Lewis – see Tongs of Praise… (sic) in The Scottish Sun, 11th January 2017.

In October, World Tribune staff published Desperate prayers by Trump’s great aunts in ‘sanctuary’ cottage said to spark Hebrides Revival in Scotland, its closing lines read:

‘An online post in the 2017 National Day of Prayer asked: “Coincidence or Holy Ghost? Not only did the revival reach the sisters’ Island in Scotland but the Hebrides Revival became known around the world. Little did they know that their nephew would one day become the President of the United States of America.”.’

Next, we’ll read Robin Main’s blog about it >> click to continue reading.

[NOTE: I’ve updated/corrected my notes accompanying John’s video blessing Trump as I had only minutes to go before leaving to watch our grandson in his school’s ‘Christmas Pageant’. On his 9th birthday he played God and his lines were taken from Genesis 1. As he delivered those lines classmates performed as stars, air, seas and earth coming together, plus animals and Adam and Eve. We thank the Lord for his healing after he was so badly afflicted all year that he wouldn’t have been able to take part in the play!]

Paws-4-thought: Kingdom-related events since lightning strike on Mecca’s Grand Mosque

Won’t you pause to ponder and praise the Lord with me? Let’s look back briefly and consider how the prophetic has a place in diplomatic circles.

After a lightning strike damaged Mecca’s Grand Mosque just over two years ago I’ve noticed many changes are under way in Saudi Arabia and the M-East generally. Developments indicative of major spiritual and diplomatic changes in Muslim leaders’ relationships with and their attitudes toward Christians, and Israel in particular, are quietly emerging.

Late in the year of the ‘blood-moon tetrad‘ (2015) I closed a series of posts on the years’ spectacular events with Why this September is special: Update #2 – Islam, which referred to a lightning strike in Mecca. Under the sub-head ‘Anniversary of 9/11 Atrocity’ I wrote:

‘On the anniversary of this century’s ‘day of infamy’ for New York, I noted another event seemed to connect into the collapse of the Twin Towers – as well as possibly being of God, or was it simply coincidence?  Lightning from a severe thunderstorm in Mecca struck a tall crane, which collapsed into the Grand Mosque thereby killing and injuring hundreds.

‘The construction engineer is quoted as saying, “It was an act of God”. A ‘very saddened’ British imam is reputed to have said, “It’s a blessing in disguise for those killed”. Four days later Saudi Arabia’s King Salman suspended contracts for the construction company, which is owned by the Bin Laden family!

‘Nevertheless, it ‘struck’ me that it’s a mirror ‘action replay’ on the 14th anniversary of the attack upon America, inspired as it was by the teachings and practices of the Meccan founder of Islam. That is, the very heart of the homeland and faith of those modern religious plotters and perpetrators was visited by an almost similar ‘toppling of a tower’. Also, my first impression was of The Almighty throwing down the gauntlet to confront satan. It’s far, far too uncanny not to be of poignant significance!’

The necessity of brevity means we’ll avoid itemising all subsequent events, except the notable one, and overlooking Crown Prince Muhammad’s radical reforms, your attention is drawn to recent events with his main Sunni Muslim allies of Egypt and Jordan.

This year’s change of US administration brought a complete sea-change not only in US-Arab diplomacy but also between USA and Israel. In his first foreign trip as the POTUS, Donald Trump addressed the 2017 Riyadh Summit in Saudi Arabia with a well-crafted speech. I re-blogged Joel Rosenberg’s report Trump boldly urges Muslim leaders to “drive out the terrorist and extremists” from their nations and mosques with this intro’:

‘Note Trump’s accurate description of Islamic terror as “battle between Good and Evil” (read prepared speech.)  All a mighty contrast to Obama’s deep rift with Riyadh in 2011 for betraying Egypt’s president Mubarak as a consequence of having invited the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood to his 2009 Cairo speech plus his back-channel dealings with Iran, as I reported just over 8 years ago in Today’s Importance in History (18 May 2009)!’

Christian Leaders Meet Middle-East’s Leaders

THEREFORE, with those two historic and highly significant events in mind let’s look at the latest news from Joel Rosenberg of his delegation of evangelical leaders’ top-level meetings in Egypt and Jordan. Tap/click links to read his reports in full:

1st Nov > Today in Cairo, Egyptian President Sisi Welcomed First-ever Delegation of Christian Leaders for 3-hour MeetingI had opportunity to meet Egyptian President el-Sisi in Washington in April.  What I could not say at the time was that…the President invited me to bring a delegation of Evangelical Christian leaders to visit him in Cairo, as well as to meet other senior Egyptian government officials and religious leaders. We’ve been working on this with his staff and advisors ever since, and today the project not only became a reality but was far more than I could possibly have hoped for…’ 

2nd Nov > Arab & Israeli media provide inside details of President el-Sisi’s historic meeting Evangelical Christian leaders in Cairo : …’Rosenberg, who was born to a Jewish father, told Haaretz that he was surprised at the level of interest expressed by the Egyptians in the delegation. “For the leader of Egypt to invite a Christian group to sit with him, discuss what he’s doing, talk about some of the difficult issues, that’s very impressive. I was hoping we could get ten minutes with him, and eventually we got almost three hours. From our side, the important thing was to show our appreciation for his fight against terrorism and extremism, for his commitment to peace and security ties with Israel, and for saving Egypt from the darkness of the Muslim Brotherhood.”…

8th Nov > Jordan’s King Abdullah II welcomes Evangelical Christian Delegation at Palace in Amman. Leaders thank King for advancing peace, fighting terrorism, caring for refugees and protecting Christians : ‘The meeting capped three days of meetings between Delegation members and senior government officials; Evangelical, Catholic and Muslim leaders in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan; and a moving visit to the Zaatari Refugee Camp near the Syrian border….’

Kingdom Presence & Prophecy

An insight upon another quite different aspect of spiritual diplomacy on behalf of the King of Kings was shared at Revd Dr Sharon Stone’s mentoring day last Saturday – it’s that of the office and function of God’s prophet.

As part of his material, the speaker for the first session taught about the student’s ‘work’ or assignment in the Lord as being the prime driver and energizer in their lives. As God created air for birds to fly through so He created His Kingdom in which His presence manifests and in which His saints are to function. Therein, Holy Spirit’s words and power comes to His people. Those anointed in the office of prophet are to create a Kingdom atmosphere in order to do their ‘work’.  So, without the presence of God any ministry is impossible. The question is, how’s this done in secular, even governmental, meetings?

In giving an example this speaker surprised us by telling about when he was invited to a meeting in Geneva, at the United Nations, and expected to prophesy to some government leaders. In meeting ‘the world’ with every race, creed and culture present, he realised the need to avoid jargon, or ‘churchese’.

‘Why? What am I trying to do? I’m trying to conquer an air-space; I’m trying to bring a Kingdom atmosphere into an already world-atmosphere. And there’s nothing more like world atmosphere, I promise you, than being at the UN…every ambassador, diplomat and delegate is there and I’m in front of a couple and of course I don’t know if they’re Christians. So I’m not going to say “Thus saith the Lord”. All I’m going to do is speak the Word of God  into the atmosphere and drop Truth, even in this place. And so I said (to X and Y), “I don’t know who you are but I see you’re in between two intense negotiations right now and I see…”

He gave the gathered students just a tiny peek of the bigger picture he was giving them about their personal work and how the Lord is helping. They then asked the prophet, “You don’t know who we are, do you?” – “No” he replied.

It turns out they’re Donald Trump’s envoys and the prophet continued: ‘(Then) as I’m speaking the atmosphere changes, all of a sudden the Kingdom of God came in and the next day – and the next day – there was momentum to minister to most of the diplomats…Why? Because we can change the atmosphere with the prophetic!’

The speaker explained how this principle works by alluding to the military strategy of  ‘air supremacy’ – so too, with prophecy and intercessory prayer.

VP Pence says advancement of religious freedom and defense of persecuted Christians…must be top priority…

After Obama administration’s deliberate anti-Christian policies we’re now seeing Trump’s pro-Christian stance in action.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

Pence-InDefenseofChristians(Jerusalem, Israel) — In the face of genocide against Christians in the Middle East, the United States government is finally making the advancement of international religious freedom — and solidarity with persecuted Christians and other faith communities — a top priority.

Several days ago, Vice President Mike Pence delivered the keynote address at a conference in Washington organized by the group, “In Defense of Christians.” You can watch the full speech by clicking here. You can read the full text by clicking here. I encourage you to do both, and share it with family friends. It was an excellent address, and very encouraging to see the seriousness with which this administration is taking the issue.

Pence said he will soon travel to Israel and Egypt, in part to advance the issue. “President Trump has directed me to go to the Middle East in December,” the V.P. told the assembled Christian…

Nuclear showdown with North Korea: Disastrous deals cut by Clinton and Obama resulted in possibility of NK’s 60 warheads!

NK-KimJungUn

While a preemptive North Korean nuclear attack on the U.S. and/or America’s Pacific allies sounds like a plot ripped from my 2008 novel, Dead Heat, it may no longer be a fictional scenario.

U.S. intelligence agencies are now convinced that “North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power,”reports the Washington Post, based on a confidential analysis by the Defense Intelligence Agency.

“The United States calculated last month that up to 60 nuclear weapons are now controlled by North Korean leader Kim Jong In,” notes the Post.

This week, Pyongyang threatened to attack the island of Guam with ballistic missiles that could be armed with nuclear weapons. With 160,000 residents and two U.S. military bases, the Pacific island territory now appears to be in Pyongyang’s crosshairs.

Saudi-TrumpSpeech2

(Washington, D.C.) — Wow. Readers of this blog know I have never been shy about expressing my concerns about President Trump when necessary. But the President deserves a great deal of credit for the speech he delivered yesterday in Saudi Arabia to the leaders of 50 Muslim-majority countries.

The address was well-crafted and respectful, even nuanced, at times. But it was also clear, honest, and bold. Indeed, it was unlike any speech any American President has ever delivered face to face to the leaders of Saudi Arabia, the Gulf Cooperation Council, Egypt, Jordan and other Muslim countries. Below, you’ll find key excerpts, a link to the full transcript and a link to the video of the full 34 minute speech. I would encourage you to both watch and read the address in full.

A few first impressions:

  1. The President rightly thanked America’s Sunni Muslim allies for their friendship and hospitality, he honored their historic achievements, rich culture and heritage, and he reached…

cEgypt-Sisi-smiling

(Central Israel) — This morning, The Jerusalem Post published a new column of mine. In it, I describe my recent meeting with the leader of Egypt and three distinct impressions of him that I walked away with. Below, you’ll find a few excerpts, and a link to the full column on the Post website.

I ask all Christians around the world to continue praying for the Christians of Egypt as they mourn those killed and comfort those wounded and traumatized in two savage suicide bombings there on Palm Sunday. Please also continue praying for the leaders of Egypt as they battle the radicals and work to improve security — and the economy — for Christians and all their citizens.

As I noted yesterday, these attacks were not isolated incidents. Rather, “they are the latest salvos in a dangerous new ISIS offensive to destabilize Egypt, and they underscore the urgency of close Egyptian security cooperation with both the U.S. and Israel to neutralize this jihadist threat.”…
