Prophetic Scripture Update #7: BBC-free newsfeed on JerUSAlem

British readers wishing to avoid the BBC’s extremely jaundiced, inaccurate news on America’s recognition of Jerusalem (visit BBC Watch) may be interested in the following sample headlines from Koenig World Watch Daily (also see Breaking Israel News and International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem):

  • Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, starts embassy move
  • Bravo President Trump for standing up to Palestinian blackmail on Jerusalem
  • Abbas warns of ‘wars without end’ following US Jerusalem declaration
  • Jordan accuses Trump of violating international law on Jerusalem
  • Iran ‘will not tolerate’ Trump’s Jerusalem ‘violation’: Rouhani
  • Trump’s Jerusalem plan worries Pope – should read Zech 12:3,9

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

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 the decision to relocate the US embassy there. [Update Thurs: Two minutes after posting and closing down for the day I turned on 6 o’clock BBC News to see him ‘Live’ in the White House. Amended post’s title spelling, adjusted opening of Zech 12 to match Hebrew see here.]

Here are some of the headlines over the past week relating to developments in fulfilling Biblical prophecy in Israel 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 the ‘peace process’ 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!

Prophetic Scripture Update #5 cont’d: Rosenberg on Putin summit with Iranian & Turkish leaders to strengthen anti-Western alliance…Trouble for Israel.

(Jerusalem, Israel) — After several years of darkness falling on the Middle East, we’re actually seeing quite a bit of good news in recent months. The U.S.-led coalition of Sunni Arab countries is systematically crushing the Islamic State. The Caliphate has been dismantled. ISIS jihadists are still a threat, but they’re being driven out of […]

Prophetic Scripture Update #5: Gog-Magog coalition solidifies, Assad’s secret visit to Russia

THE HOLY BIBLE CONTINUES TO DISPLAY ITS RELEVANCE TO TODAY’S NEWS

As I read yesterday’s (Wednesday 22nd November) Telegraph report it kept speaking to me of chapter 38 in the Book of Ezekiel. That’s where the Lord told that Old Testament prophet about a future international alliance that would come against His people.

As outlined in Update #2, Ezekiel 38 and 39 describe an alliance known as ‘the Gog and Magog’ coalition that will eventually invade the land the Holy One of Israel gave to His people. Most Bible scholars regard the various people named as forming that group  as coming from the land between and north of the Black and Caspian Seas. ie modern Russia.

The prophet received a word from the Lord to ‘set his face’ against Gog, a leader of those nations north of Israel and which include Persia/Iran. And in coming into battle he and those nations would be used for God’s own purpose for this almighty battle:

“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.” (Ezekiel 38:7 NKJV)

Let’s check the pertinent points of Middle East correspondent Raf Sanchez report, emphases mine.  His opening gives the game away!!

‘Syria’s Bashar al-Assad has thanked Vladimir Putin and the Russian military for helping to save his country as the Russian president prepared to host the leaders of Iran and Turkey for high-level talks on ending the war in Syria. Mr Assad made a secret visit to Socchi (Black Sea resort) on Monday…(where he) met Mr Putin for 3 hours to discuss a potential political settlement for Syria’s future…

‘Mr Putin ordered Russian forces to intervene in Syria on Mr Assad’s behalf in late 2015…(and) with their Iranian allies have swung the tide of war decisively in Mr Assad’s favour.

‘The Kremlin said the two men had worked to “prepare the groundwork for possible understandings” that might be reached during today’s (22nd) summit between Mr Putin, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani and President Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey.

‘ Iran and Russia supported the Assad regime throughout the war whilst Turkey has backed the opposition. The three countries have acted as guarantors of local deals in Syria and Mr Putin hopes they will be able to agree on a comprehensive pact to end the fighting.

Mr Putin has placed himself centre-stage in talks over Syria’s future. As well as hosting the Turkish and Iranian leaders, he spoke to Donald Trump by phone…briefing him on the talks with Mr Assad.

‘The Geneva talks (with Syrian opposition) have collapsed several times…observers agree it’s more likely major decisions will be made by Russia, Iran and Turkey.’

SO, WHO’s IN CHARGE? Clearly the Russian leader is! Although often disagreeing with each other, the leaders of Iran and Turkey kowtow to him.

The above Reuters’ photo of Assad and Putin speaks volumes to those who read body language.

MEANWHILE ON ISRAELI-SYRIAN BORDER

Previous posts on Gog/Magog referred to the Iranian strategy of getting a strong swathe of influence westwards from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean by means of proxy-terrorist, regular military and diplomatic activities. In view of their declared ambition of attacking and capturing Jerusalem, Iran’s military presence in the Golan and within 10 miles of Israel is totally unacceptable to the Israeli government.

Several bulletin point headlines in Middle-East Update #2 highlight those deep issues. Note the reference to a special ‘eschatological’ brigade in the Golan. One whose aim is undoubtedly to prepare the ground for the Shiite Mahdi to appear (with Jesus in tow!) – obviously a blasphemous counterfeit of Christian theology. (Read more on this in third section of Iran and the Nuclear ‘Fix’.)

Moreover, Monday’s long telephone conversation between Putin and PM Netanyahu ended up with them at odds over removing Iran/Hizballah from the Golan border (Debka). It would appear Donald Trump has quietly withdrawn the US from involvement on this front. Having close Christian input, details of the Ezekiel 38 Gog-Magog prophecy will have been brought to his attention.

A prince moves us towards the Second Signpost

mohammed-bin-salman-afp-bigWith the background from updates here, here and here following Sept 2015’s ‘Act of God’ lightning strike on Mecca’s Grand Mosque, and especially in view of Iran being the main actor of the Ezekiel 38 Gog-Magog alliance, we consider how events fit into Daniel’s prophecies…

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

In January 2016 a high-ranking Shia cleric was executed, and an embassy was burned down in retribution.

In November 2017 a missile is launched from Yemen towards Riyadh, the Saudi capital. The Lebanese Prime Minister, a Sunni Muslim, finds safety in Arabia and resigns his post.

While these might be cause for concern with many, we who are familiar with the Four Signposts know the big event to watch out for. We do not know how it will begin. It could have started over any of these events, or an event like it in the future. But that is the nature of the enmity between Sunni and Shia, one of constant agitation. We will continue to see sabre rattling and tough talk and events that make it seem the Second Signpost War could break out at any time.

Remember Iran launching its own rocket into the ISIS area? Over…

Centenary of the Balfour Declaration

Prime Ministers meet prior to gala dinner – Credit: Peter Nicholls/PA Wir (tap for link)

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the British Government’s issuing a Declaration in support for ‘A National Home for the Jewish People’ (read draft versions at Balfour100). As expected, this morning’s edition of Koenig’s World Watch Daily includes this in its rolling headlines, ‘November 2nd 2017 is the 100th Anniversary of the Balfour Declaration’ and displays a copy of the document:

 

Now, does this anniversary have any relevance to prophecies in the Holy Bible?

In my opinion it’s prophetically signalled by the fact that Koenig has sandwiched the Declaration between two directly Gog-Magog relevant headlines – (above) ‘In Iran, Putin says dismantling nuclear deal is ‘not acceptable’.’ with a photo of his shaking hands yesterday with Iran’s President Rhouani – the headline shown below it reads as shown here with initial text describing the preceding Declaration item:

So we’re not only back to the Bible but also to what grabbed my attention in mid-1980s of Iran rehearsing (with its Sunni enemy troops!) the storming of Jerusalem whilst I was reading about it as a non-Christian in the secular book ‘The Invisible Hand’ (tap link to learn more).

Never forget Khameini’s belief that their full attack will facilitate the supernatural return of their ‘hidden imam’ or Mahdi – accompanied by the prophet Jesus!! (See Iranian Leader’s End-times Declaration)  LOL!  So let’s pray that Khameini is blessed with a similar personal revelation of the supreme power of Jesus Christ over Muslim’s god and prophet as had stunned the ex-Hezbollah Afshin David.

As well as being related to the prophecies in Ezekiel 38-39, those two items on World Watch tie in with the next headline on the surgical insertion of microchips under the skin in the web between the thumb and hand. This development was foretold in Revelation 13 wherein a demonic entity forces people to ‘receive a mark on right hand or forehead’ in order to buy and sell – just like holding a phone and waving it over a cash machine!

SO MILLENNIALS – BEWARE of enslavement to your devices!!

It’s so obvious that we’re quickly getting closer to the times of the battle of Armageddon and Jesus Christ’s return to put all demonic principalities and powers under His feet.

For more information consider Cranmer’s excellent historical/theological review of the Declaration…which concludes:

‘God told Abraham to “Go…”, and he responded “I will…”. God promised Abraham that his descendants would have a land – a geographic entity – and would be a blessing to all the nations of the earth. Israel is a fulfilment of that promise, or the covenant of blessing is as fragile and ephemeral as the desert covenant. Christians and Jews together can thank the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and praise the God and Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ for the restoration of the Jewish people to their homeland, because it was an eschatological promise that He would so. And if that was not a promise, then Jesus may not in fact be the long-promised Messiah, and our promised salvation is nullified in a plethora of meaningless metaphors.

Three days’ prophetic jigsaw pieces: #1 – 21st Sept and 1Thessalonians 5

‘But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.’  (1 Thess 5:1-4 NKJV – emphases added)

Is what Apostle Paul foretold about the timing of the Day of the Lord happening today? Or this coming year?  Especially noteworthy is the fact that today is Rosh Hashanah – the start of the Jewish New Year 5778!!

You may recall having read about this a month ago in Today’s and one month away’s awesome events in the heavens on Mark Biltz’s message (1:04 – 1:05 mark refers)?

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

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

Eschatologists reason that, in the context of the corpus of End-time scripture, this verse means Israel will be living in peace and safety within its own land without any threats or attacks from other nations. Hence the international interest in getting an Israel-Palestine peace treaty signed with a two-state solution to the vexed issue.

But what if the verse really refers to a worldwide concensus to talk about peace and safety, not the resolution of a long-standing Middle-East geopolitical problem??

Could this year, therefore, be the beginning of The Day of The Lord?

Another Biblical Connection?

Furthermore, the details in Matthew’s account of the magi’s journey following the Star of Bethlehem had dropped into mind over the past weeks’ whilst mulling over September’s three special days. (Hence my publishing God’s Bookends.)  King Herod’s asking them about the timing of that star resulted in his murdering children under two years of age (Matt 2:7& 2:16).  So could there be something meaningful about ‘two years’? I ponder over its possible implications in the fulfillment of prophecy.

Moreover, could it support a ‘niggling’ growing suspicion over the direct relevance of what I’d posted two years ago about the Day of the Lord??

Therefore, I was struck whilst editing that post to hear an announcement coming out of my computer speakers about those two years!!  And it was the voice of a man with the same initials as me – RB!  He was nine minutes into a video summary of discussions on the internet since 2015 about the two years up to now, and of which I’m totally unaware as my time’s far too valuable to spend trawling through cyber-stuff.

Double therefore – I took this ‘God-incidence’ as confirmation about the connection I’d been mulling over. Here it is:

Whilst in Jerusalem during the Feat of Tabernacles in 2015 violinist and messianic Jew Dr Maurice Sklar had a visionary experience which concluded with him being instructed to “Tell them all, The Day of the Lord is upon you now!”

‘Upon’ doesn’t necessarily mean ‘here’ or ‘on top of’ but it can also mean something’s ‘imminent’ and so ‘The Day of the Lord’ could be just ‘over the horizon’ and arrive very soon!

Moreover, although two years apart Dr Sklar’s revelatory vision and today’s UN ‘Peace Day’ are both on a Feast day designated by the Lord: ie. Tabernacles and Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) – Leviticus 23:23-25 and 23:33-36.  The latter is a two-day holiday starting at sundown yesterday and to allow for sighting of the new moon in Jerusalem. It is immediately followed by high holy days ‘The Days of Awe’ leading into Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, with intense spiritual preparation and repentance, sometimes referred to as ‘Israel’s Dark Days’. Old Testament prophets understood the Days of Awe to be a period of judgement, which has a parallel with The Day of The Lord (The Last Shofar, Joseph Lenard & Donalf Zoller).

What’s more, the astronomical alignment of planets and constellations that mirror the ‘radiant woman’ of Rev 12:1-2 takes place on the first ‘Day of Awe’ 2017; that is, 23rd September!

A Brief Biblical Background

For newer readers, let’s briefly consider the background to Paul’s letter and the Day of the Lord:

In the earliest canonical document of the Church (depending upon resolution of date of his letter to the churches in Galatia), Apostle Paul reminded believers in Thessalonica what he’d taught them about Jesus Christ’s promise to return. They were concerned about the status of those who’d died (were ‘asleep’) before that prophesied event.

He states, “For this we say to you by the word of the Lord” which, in my humble opinion, clearly implies Paul had heard this direct from Jesus personally, or received during his very occasional meetings with the twelve apostles. (The later gospels, Peter and John’s letters refer to Jesus’ second coming but don’t spell out the details, as Paul does, for all believers upon being ‘caught up’ or ‘raptured’ to Him at His return.)

Paul refers in passing to a future event first prophesied by prophet Obadiah – the Day of the Lord (see Obad 15) – and to which Jesus alludes in his ‘mission statement’ and its direct connection with Isaiah 61:2 (Luke 4:18-19 refers).

Prophetic Scripture Update #4: Gog-Magog coalition, Putin’s ambitions

On Friday Joel Rosenberg in Jerusalem blogged about FoxNews.com publishing that morning a new column of his on the massive Russian war games underway near the borders of three NATO countries and Ukraine. He includes findings from an exclusive poll he’d commissioned about American attitudes towards Russia and Putin earlier this year.

Regular readers of this blog will be familiar with Joel’s writings but FoxNews introduces him:

  • Rosenberg has extraordinary credentials for his perspective on America’s enemies, earning him the nickname of a “modern day Nostradamus.”
  • In 2002, Rosenberg opened his debut novel, The Last Jihad, with Muslim extremists using an airplane in a kamikaze attack on the president of the United States. Rosenberg wrote that scene before the 9/11 terror attack….[his] upcoming novel is focused on what seems to be his latest prophetic piece of fiction, The Kremlin Conspiracy…

Joel’s blog Putin is more dangerous than radical Islam is primarily concerned with that Russian’s intentions in Eastern Europe and on Joel’s experience as a Watcher on the walls, “Putin is the greatest geo-political threat that the West faces”.

The biblical aspect of Putin’s ambitions, however, increasingly continues to be directly connected with the Gog-Magog coalition foreseen by prophet Ezekiel in the scenario of end-times events the Lord showed him; as outlined in Update #3 (with its account of a ‘coincidental’ attack by ‘cyber-gremlins’ AND that’s not the first time with respect to my blogging about Iran!).

In view of his residence in Israel, Joel will doubtless be aware of developments over the Syrian front, as in yesterday’s Breaking Israel News of Russia rejecting Israel’s request for a 37-mile buffer zone in the Golan to keep Iranian-backed forces away from their border.

These extracts from Debkafile’s recent military intelligence analyses and reports provide more on Putin’s support of Iran:

  • The Russian air force has recently deployed to Syria four of its most highly advanced early warning and control aircraft, the Beriev A-50 SRDLO (“Mainstay”), which is rated the most sophisticated AWACS in operation…(The plane’s)  radar is capable of pinpointing targets across a distance of 600km (covering) all parts of Israel and can detect every aerial and military movement…’ (30 Aug – Russian-Syrian radar covers all Israel)
  • ‘Washington was winding up discussions with Moscow on terms for US special forces to evacuate the Al Tanf post they were holding in the Syrian-Iraqi-Jordanian triangle and hand it over to the Syrian army. Quitting Al Tanf is tantamount to the US withdrawal from south-eastern Syria and its handover to Syria and its allies, including Hizballah…’(8 Sept – US set to quit Al Tanf. Pro-Iranian forces move in)
  • ‘Iran, Syria and Hizballah sharpened their responses to the large-scale Israeli military war game against a potential Hizballah invasion… An Iranian military buildup indeed appears to be taking place on Syria’s borders with Jordan and Israel, in response to Israel’s mock thrust into Lebanon. But they are moving in on areas outside the de-escalation zones which are manned by Russian officers. Their tactic therefore is to entrench themselves in other parts of the southeastern Syria so that Russian, Iranian, Syrian and Hizballah forces form a continuous, impermeable line along Syria’s borders with Israel and Jordan.’ (12 Sept – Iran build-up in S Syria…)
  • ‘The (US/UK-forbidden river Euphates) crossing operation, as well as deepening Russia’s military involvement in Syrian and Hizballah offensives, is a major boost for Iran’s objectives, with grave strategic implications for the US and Israel…Iran and its pawns were creating an accomplished fact, with massive logistical and military assistance from the Russian army…By establishing a foothold on both banks of the Euphrates River and both sides of the Syrian-Iraqi border, Iran has taken a step towards pursuing its avowed goal of Israel’s destruction.’ (16 Sept – Syrian/Hizballah troops cross Euphrates).

6pm alert – today’s game-changing tactics! (Read Russia/Iran’s game-changer.)

Prophetic Scripture Update #3: Gog-Magog coalition and Middle-East alliance

So annoying yet interesting that my first draft of this post accidentally got published as I wrote its title. I wanted to jot a few notes before going out for a few hours, but I noticed something weird after having done the opening paragraph. Somehow it had already got published as just a title! So I updated it briefly 15 minutes after publication with what I’d done and an apology for anyone responding to the email notification.

BUT even more weird was what came next upon checking the morning news from Israel before going out. I kid you not – ‘Fortunately’, I’d printed a hardcopy for reading upon return because the website’s page went blank, then text/image placements and bits of text and coding appeared, and then it got completely scrambled. So I took a screen shot:

Debkafile home page at 10:10 GMT today.

The page I wanted had only just been broadcast 5 minutes beforehand (09:57 BST) and is about an alternative alliance to ‘Gog-Magog’ and which is meeting tomorrow (Wed)! More of that later…but nothing as weird as this has happened since two incidents covering Iran whilst blogging!

EZEKIEL: GOG and MAGOG

After publishing #2 on Gog-Magog Tensions On The Golan within a similar 1/2 hour time-frame to this morning I added a couple of paragraphs plus further reading for any readers unfamiliar with Ezekiel’s account in chapter 38 of his prophetic scroll. Whilst doing so I considered the current status of what I’d termed the ‘Ezekiel alliance’ in my pre-blog and early blogging days. The term is a correct description but I now prefer ‘coalition’ in view of the normally inferred meaning of a geopolitical alliance as being one in which the UK is an active member. So I’ll now repeat and expand a little upon that extra material:

The Gog and Magog war against Israel is described in Ezekiel 38 and 39. The prophet received a word from the Lord to ‘set his face’ against Gog (‘prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal’); ie leader of a coalition of nations north of Israel comprising Persia/Iran, Libya (‘Put’), Ethiopia (‘Cush’), ‘Asia Minor’ (Gomer and Togarmah).

Most Bible scholars regard ‘Rosh’ and ‘Gog’ 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, namely:

“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.

UPDATES – Libya, Russia & Iran

The build-up of the coalition of the main, leading nations led by a superpower has gained momentum in starting to mirror the composition of peoples prophesied by Ezekiel. I was puzzled about the inclusion of Libya in view of its break-up after Gadaffi.  In the days of my emails on End-times and early blogging it was part of the ‘Ezekiel alliance’, but now?

My doubts were soon alleviated because a few days later I spotted this headline ‘Russian ties to Libyan Warlord ‘undeniable’, says US general’.  The article opens: ‘Russia has deployed troops to Egypt amid a strengthening of ties between Moscow and General Khalifa Haftar, the warlord who controls much of the eastern part of Libya, a US general said on Friday. 

‘Marine Gen. Thomas Waldhauser, the commander of U.S. Africa Command, said the link between Russia and General Haftar, the head of a group called the Libyan National Army, is “undeniable”.  “They are on the ground. They are trying to influence the action. We watch what they do with great concern”, he told reporters in the Pentagon on Friday…’

Eastern Libya was known as biblical ‘Put’. SO, Libya’s back in the Endgame folks!

AND, this afternoon comes this news: Putin meets Iran’s Rouhani as ties deepenRussian president tells his Iranian counterpart the two countries “work very effectively, practically on all fronts in international action and the resolution of major and very grave international problems”!  Note that upon returning to Iran he announced the building of a railroad from Iran to the Mediterranean coast via Iraq and Syria.

ARAB SUMMIT – alliance with Israel

Saudi Arabia’s Prince Mohammed bin Salman with President Trump

In view of the preceding, Debkfile’s ‘exclusive report’ High hopes of Arab summit OK for Israel peace step is exceptionally informative:

‘If the Arab summit opening in Amman Wednesday, March 9 meets the expectations of Washington and Jerusalem, the session will ratify a pivotal initiative for promoting an historic peace process between the Arab world and Israel. This effort, which matured through five months of mostly secret diplomacy, was launched by Donald Trump in November, shortly after he was elected US President.

‘The official Arab summit agenda covers the disastrous war crises preying on the Arab world in Syria, Yemen and Iraq, as well as economic issues. But the rulers will also quietly discuss off-stage a proposal brought by Saudi King Salman and Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi to embark on steps destined to lead to peaceful relations between the moderate Arab regimes and Israel and exponentially to a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. (Emphases added)

‘Debkafile’s sources in Washington and Jerusalem report exclusively that President Trump and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman crafted this proposal at the White House on March 14, during the prince’s trip to Washington. It was the high point of their talks, although they also aired and reached agreement on the war crises in Syria and Yemen, as well as America’s next steps against Iran on both those fronts and in the Gulf region…

‘The text they agreed at this White House encounter calls for three steps to be launched without delay for promoting progress towards a historic accommodation between the Arab world and the Jewish state

‘…Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas furiously rejected the Saudi peace initiative when it was presented to him in Cairo by President El-Sisi in Cairo on March 20.

(Click above title to read this informative article in full).

Thus we are witnessing the formation of two geopolitically and religiously divergent camps (Sunni and Shiite muslims) in the Middle-East – and we know what the Living Lord God Almighty, the Holy One of Israel has forewarned and foretold about one coalition in particular…

Think Tank: Iran’s preparations confirm Second Signpost

daniel-revisited-cover-smallDevelopments continue unabated of the scenario I first noticed in mid-80’s (which introduced me to the accuracy of biblical End-times prophecy – 2nd link below refers). Thank you Mark Davidson for the Four Signposts theory of prophetic fulfillment and keeping watch…(for summary intro see Four ‘Signposts’ of Books of Daniel and The Apocalypse and US Presidents’ Actions Relate to Daniel’s Visions).

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

Daniel Revisited chapter 10 gives a detailed account of how Iran is both fulfilling and will fulfill prophetic Scripture in Daniel 7 and 8 regarding the great invasion by Iran of the Middle East. This great invasion is coming. It is next. It is imminent. This is the Second Signpost. It is the great war to stretch across the Middle East.  It will involve troop numbers not seen since Hussein’s war with Iran in the 1980s.  And it will be a global game changer.

Daniel Revisited says of the forces to be used for Iran’s actual ground invasion of the Middle East,

“It will most likely be the IRGC that will use its forces to deal with various strategic targets when the invasion begins. I believe the Basij’s potential to overwhelm with its numbers will be behind the bulk of the invasion.”                 (Daniel Revisited, p. 199, TN edition)

Ms. Mogherini prophesies Second Signpost

Detail from Eagle-eyed by John Mark LongHave been lining up a short blog on the EU/Greece crisis with a point about this ‘High Representative’ and Europe’s political war with Israel. Very few know that the number of the document recommending creation of that office at the Western EU summit in Vienna in 1998 was ‘666’! (See this blog’s Not many people know – 2 and the late Herb Peters’ Overview and book Recommendation 666.)

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

Once in a while, someone in the secular world speaks a prophecy right out of the Signpost interpretation of God’s word.  Iranian president Rouhani did it several months ago.  It happened again today with the breaking of this story.

Ms. Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union, spoke these words while in the thick of the negotiations with Iran for a nuclear deal, about the deal itself:

“…[the] security of the world is at stake.”

How true are those words!  Her university thesis was “Relationship between religion and politics in Islam” according to Wikipedia, so there is a good plausibility she understands who she is dealing with, though she likely could not know the full extent of the current situation.  She likely meant her words to refer to a new nuclear threat from a fundamentalist Islamic nation.  But her words can be taken differently, as a threat…

The coming Iranian invasion: West and South come into focus

Further to the previous on today’s fulfilment of Daniel’s visions in which I referred to Mark Davidson’s work, it’s fitting to consider his viewpoint and updated map for the situation, as below. I’d add it’s reported two Iranian Revolutionary Guard battalions now overlook the strategic Bab el-Mandeb straits and Khamenei is sending the Iranian navy. Also, US national security ‘experts’ have long seriously underestimated the Saudi royal family and expected it to collapse. Hence, Obama’s clandestine wooing of Iran. (See Goldman’s opening remarks here) Is it any wonder the CIA doesn’t know why Muslims join ISIS?

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

The Second Signpost is the invasion of the Middle East by Iran.  Daniel 7:5 and 8:3-4 tell us about it.  The former passage tells us that many countries will be ravaged by Iranian forces, and the latter passage tells us that Iranian forces will advance in three directions.  About three and a half years ago I created the map of the Second Signpost, shown as Figure 10-2, for my first book Hidden In Plain Sight, published in January 2012.  That map is shown below as Map #1.

Map #1.  The original map showing possible Iranian military advances during the Second Signpost.  (From Hidden In Plain Sight, Nov. 2011) Map #1. The original map showing possible Iranian military advances during the Second Signpost. (From Hidden In Plain Sight, Nov. 2011)

Map #1, showing the invasion by Iran, was based solely on my interpretation of Scripture (Dan. 7:5, 8:3-4, i.e. the Second Signpost) overlaid on my research of the geopolitical and military landscape in the Middle East.  The map was also…
