Teaching from “Chronicles”: how Chiastics brings a breakthrough

Mark Davidson, author of ‘Daniel Revisited’ with its ‘Four Signposts’ perspective of that book’s prophecies (overview here), introduces his new book on a fuller and better way of handling prophetic scriptures.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

This is a brief teaching series to point to the breakthroughs shown us in Chronicles. The book itself is much more detailed.

  • Part 1—Introduction: What Is Chiastics and What It Can Do
  • Part 2—How to Read a Chiastic Passage, in Both Its Forms
  • Part 3—What Parallel Form Tells Us
  • Part 4—What Convergent Form Tells Us
  • Part 5—How These Forms Change the Prophecy Landscape

We’ve been taught all our lives to read the words in the Bible (and in all other books), linearly, one after the other, in sentences. This, of course, is logical. We receive knowledge sufficient to allow us to ask Jesus Christ to be our Savior and to commit our lives to Him.

But this is not all the Bible has in store to teach us. Believe it or not, there is more to teach us beyond what is found in linear sentences.

The words have…

Urgent warning for the world – Veronika West

This prophetic word brought by Veronika was published around the same time early last night as I posted Christians, Relinquish All Fear:

AN URGENT WORD FOR THE NATIONS!!

VWest 13septI hear the Spirit of God say,

“WATCH! FOR MY HAND NOW MOVES IN THE MIDST OF THE STORMS THAT RAGE, IN THE MIDST OF THE WHIRLWINDS, THE HURRICANES, THE EARTHQUAKES, THE FLOODS AND THE FIRES, YES! MY HAND IS NOW MOVING UPON THE WATERS OF THE SEA AND UPON THE MOUNTAINS AND THE VALLEYS, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU MY HAND OF RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT NOW MOVES IN THE MIDST OF THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH TO UPROOT, TO PULL DOWN AND TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF DARKNESS AND DECEPTION. FOR EVEN NOW MY HAND IS MOVING TO OVERTHROW AND OVERTURN, WATCH! AS MY SPIRIT OF MIGHT, POWER AND THE FEAR OF THE LORD NOW COMES LIKE A RAGING RIVER UPON THE NATIONS TO DETHRONE THE POWERS AND PRINCIPALITIES OF WITCHCRAFT AND IDOL WORSHIP IN THE LAND, NO LONGER WILL MY JUSTICE TARRY, NO LONGER WILL MY WRATH BE HELD BACK, NO LONGER WILL THE DEEDS OF THE WICKED GO UNPUNISHED, WATCH! FOR I HAVE MARKED THE STUBBORN AND STIFF-NECKED NATIONS FOR A DIVINE WORK OF DESTRUCTION.
“DID I NOT SEND MY FAITHFUL PROPHETS TO WARN OF THESE THINGS THAT WOULD COME IF YOU DID NOT TURN AND REPENT? BUT YOU DID NOT LISTEN, FOR SURELY YOU DESPISED MY PROPHETS AND YOU RESISTED THEIR DIVINE UTTERANCES, YOU DROVE THEM OUT FROM AMONG YOU THAT YOU MAY CONTINUE TO WALK IN YOUR REBELLIOUS WAYS. MANY HAVE SAID THAT MY KINDNESS LEADS TO REPENTANCE, BUT I TELL YOU THE TRUTH DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING FOR THEY HAVE FED YOU POISONED FOOD AND POLLUTED WATER, BELOVED MY WAYS AND MY WILL DO NOT EVOLVE OVER TIME, NO!! FOR I AM THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVERMORE, WATCH AND LISTEN! FOR THERE ARE THOSE THAT WILL SPEAK TO THE STORMS, THEY WILL COMMAND THE WINDS AND THE WAVES THEY WILL SHOUT OUT, “PEACE, BE STILL” BUT WATCH! FOR I TELL YOU THE TRUTH THE WINDS AND THE WAVES WILL NOT OBEY THEM, FOR WHAT I AM RELEASING CANNOT BE CONTAINED AND CANNOT BE RESTRAINED, FOR MY RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENTS AGAINST THE WICKED WILL NOT BE STOPPED NOR STIFLED AND THE WORKS OF MY HAND OF JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL NOT BE TURNED BACK, WATCH! FOR MY WINDS WILL NOT BE REBUKED AND MY EARTHQUAKES WILL NOT BE SILENCED, AND MY FIRES WILL NOT BE QUENCHED AND MY FLOODS WILL NOT BE HELD BACK. BELOVED, MY BELOVED FEAR NOT, FOR THIS IS THE HOUR AND THE SEASON OF RIGHTEOUS RETALIATION AND RIGHTEOUS REDEMPTION IN THE EARTH, WATCH! FOR MY SPIRIT IS NOW MOVING SUDDENLY, SWIFTLY AND SEVERELY IN THE NATIONS, WATCH AND PRAY, RETURN AND REPENT AND SURELY I WILL SHOW GREAT MERCY IN MIDST OF GREAT JUDGEMENT AND WILL SHOW MYSELF TO BE THE GRACIOUS TO THOSE WHO CALL UPON MY NAME,” says the Spirit of God.

Bill Salus on Jeremiah & Ezekiel prophecies on nuclear Iran

We noted the ‘coincidental’ occurrence of an earthquake near Iran’s nuclear power plant at Bushehr on Israel’s 70th Independence Day, 19th April 2018 in my musing here, then considered it further in Earthquake on Israel’s 70th, Jeremiah’s 70th and Daniels’ 70th – Signs from God?

Therefore, you may wish to be aware of Bill Salus’ biblical analysis on Nuclear Iran: Are Ezekiel 38 (Persia) and Jeremiah 49 (Elam) the Same Prophecy? and recent in-depth teaching in this video:

Apparently, only in his later years did highly respected eschatologist and bible teacher Chuck Missler come to a fuller understanding of Bill’s ideas, and he kindly published this on Koinonia House website at Elam: Iran’s Forgotten Prophecy.

Bible Update: Russia’s lead in Middle-East recognised

Vladimir Putin’s ‘twin summits’ with Benjamin Netanyahu and then with Donald Trump, bring this update on developments relating to the Gog-Magog alliance, as foretold by Ezekiel. (Click this posts tags for background, and links for full reports):

16 July: Trump & Putin agree on keeping Israel safe (but) not much else – ‘Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin told the press that their two-hour face-to-face on Monday, July 16, in Helsinki, was a success. But, the impression was that there was very little agreement on the issues they touched on, including Iran, Syria or Crimea. Neither referred to the removal of Iran and its proxies from Syria, as Israel has demanded. Putin appeared to say that Israeli security was served by the Israeli-Syrian 1974 Separation of Forces agreement on the Golan and advised extending it to the Syrian-Jordanian border as well. Trump noted: “We both talk to Benjamin Netanyahu, work with him on Syria and agree on the importance of Israel’s safety.”..It would seem that the high speculation ahead of the summit of a deal in the making between the two presidents for Iran to quit Syria in return for a US military pullback was pie in the sky.’

16 July Debka Exclusive: Netanyahu’s secret consent to hand Golan crossing to Syria led to Trump-Putin deal on Israel’s border security‘(Trump and Putin) joined in their support for Israel’s security (as above) after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told them both that he had withdrawn his objections to the Syrian army reinstating its line of outposts in the Quenitra district, including control of the Ein Zivan-Quneitra border crossing. This is the only transit point between Israel and Syria….’

18 July: Secret Helsinki deal: US & Israel hand Russia controlling role on Syria’s Israel-Jordan borders ‘…DEBKAfile has obtained exclusive access to this deal and can reveal for the first time that it provides for the handover to Russian responsibility of all parts of southern and southwestern Syria abutting on the Israeli and Jordanian borders, including, most importantly, surveillance and observation elevations that oversee all parts of Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon and the eastern Mediterranean. Trump and Binyamin Netanyahu thereby gave Putin a valuable asset for boosting Russia’s military presence in Syria and the region at large…’ (emphasis added)

For a better grasp of President’s Trump’s apparently incorrect and/or muddled remarks on investigations into Russian hacking read investigative journalist Melanie Phillips’ in-depth analysis in The Hysteria Over Helsinki and the Real Threat to the Free World.

Melanie wisely concludes (emphases mine):

‘Trump’s personality flaws – his self-obsession, his lack of attention span, his thin skin against criticism, his inability to speak carefully and accurately – are plain for all to see. The crucial point, however, is not what Trump says, nor the content of his character, but what he does and what he achieves.

‘And here’s what Putin said that was potentially so significant. For his remarks suggested that he would support Trump’s attempts to defang both Iran and North Korea. If Trump turns out to have succeeded in detaching Russia from Iran over Syria and from China over North Korea, that would be a huge step towards defeating two of the most evil and dangerous regimes in the world.

‘Seen in this light, the reaction of the media and political class to the Helsinki press conference was not just hysterical and disproportionate and a display of near-pathological hatred towards Donald Trump, but a malevolent undermining of the most promising attempt for years to tackle some of the major threats to the peace and security of the world.’

Postscript:

Does Russia’s apparent change towards Iran and favouring Israel disprove the ‘Gog-Magog’ prophecy or indicate it’s not yet applicable in its fullness? Within days events changed and got realigned to that prophecy and put it back on the front burner’, as told in the next post Status quo resumption realigns Russia-Israel Realpolitiks With Bible prophecy!

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

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

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

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

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

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

YEAR OF ‘PEACE & SAFETY’!

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

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

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

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

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

US EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DIS-INFORMATION

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

UPDATE ON ‘666’

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

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

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

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

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

Synopsis of posts on unsealing the Book of Daniel

To continue our theme on Daniel:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TIMING TRAIL

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

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

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

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

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

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

ISRAEL’S 70 YEARS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

JEREMIAH’S 70 YEARS

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

DANIEL’S 70 ‘YEARS’

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

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

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

We must consider this further…

Bible Update: Gog-Magog developments

Further to February’s Bible Updates on Israel & USA vs Iran & Russia, I’m now reading  DebkaFile’s exclusive report issued just after midday, Jerusalem, about Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu and Russian president Putin at loggerheads during yesterday’s phone conversation, which Bibi had initiated:

‘Vladimir Putin warned Binyamin Netanyahu to discontinue Israeli strikes in Syria because they may rock the Assad regime [backed by Moscow] and insisted on Israel respecting Syrian sovereignty and security. By this warning, Russia clamped down on the freedom the Israeli air force had hitherto enjoyed in Syrian air space for striking hostile elements, primarily Iran and Hizballah.

‘Netanyahu shot back, according to our sources, that Israel cannot possibly desist from action over Syria, since this would leave Iran at liberty to establish a permanent, hostile military presence in that country. And so, said the prime minister, Israel would have to persevere in its efforts to stop this happening. The conversation between Putin and Netanyahu ended in total discord…

Previously, Israel had kept Russia appraised of possible action against Iranian military activity inimical to Israel’s safety. As well as his knowing the existence of many sources of the nerve agent toxin Novichok, the release of which necessitated continued closure to the public of many locations within the city of Salisbury, that most sensitive working relationship meant Netanyahu refrained from joining the wide, international censure of Russia over the poisoning incident.  It’s no wonder their villainous and deeply sinister schemes countenance their Syrian vassal’s continued commissioning of war crimes.

[UPDATE: ‘Without revealing his source, French President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday: “We have proof that last week chemical weapons, at least chlorine, were used by the regime of Bashar al-Assad” in Douma – Debka Breaking News.]

There was, however, another reason: Israel was preparing a pre-emptive airstrike against Iranian hardware at the T-4 airbase near Homs in Syria and this time kept Russia in the dark but informed President Trump!  This change of tack brought forth a dramatic change in Kremlin’s longstanding practice of letting Israel’s military operations pass without comment. Moscow’s tone towards Israel turned hostile (9 April) reports:

‘DebkaFile’s military and intelligence sources say that Moscow’s ire was prompted by five causes and more hostile steps against Israel may be coming:

  1. Israel’s reported military strike in Syria hit President Vladimir Putin at a highly vulnerable moment, when the US and its Western allies were holding him directly accountable for chemical weapons attacks in Syria and the United Kingdom.
  2. Putin never imagined that the nerve agent attack on the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter would be tied in with allegations that the Russian-backed Assad regime was using poison gas against Syrian civilians in Douma near Damascus.
  3. The Russian president suspects that Israel struck the T-4 airbase, a shared Syrian-Russian-Iranian air facility, as an advance foray on behalf of the US for testing Moscow’s reaction to a larger operation. He is therefore pushing back strongly against the Israeli attack to ward off a US sequel.
  4. After Israel’s wide-ranging air offensive on Feb. 10, which ended in one of its F-16 jets being shot down, Putin warned Jerusalem to desist from further attacks on Syrian targets, else the Russian air force would hit back. Israel complied for two months. But then, the compulsion became pressing to take out a key Iranian target, even at the risk of Russian disfavor.’

On the ‘Ezekiel 38 Alliance’, or Gog-Magog, political front we need to note the recent summit in Ankara between the leaders of Russia, Turkey and Iran. Most noteworthy is the fact their currencies are ‘tumbling in tandem’, as reported by Asia Times.

Close on the heels of the summit Iran’s supreme leader once again spoke about their intentions of removing Israel. On arriving in Damascus on Tuesday his senior adviser, Ali Akbar Velayati, bluntly stated, “Israel’s air strike on the Syrian air base will not go unanswered,” he said, At the same time Tehran gained support from its Russian ally in the visit of special Russian emissary on Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev. In a long meeting with Iran’s national security adviser Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani, the Russian said Iran’s decision for a military response to the T-4 attack was understandable. He proposes combining Iran’s action against Israel with Russia’s plans for countering the forthcoming US-British-France operation in Syria (Moscow-Tehran link up to strike Israeli targets in response to US-led operation in Syria).

Those familiar with the prophetic nature of the holy scriptures watch all developments with deep interest. For example, here’s what the prophet Isiah brought that’s now coming into fulfillment in our days on ‘The burden (oracle/prophecy) against Damascus’ (Isaiah 17:1):

“Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap.”

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 🙂
