Bible Update: ‘Gog-Magog’ game-changing event on Israel’s border

This morning’s news brings a reminder, in the midst of the current political upheavals, of what Bible prophecy points to: an almighty battle near the Mount of Megiddo, otherwise known in Greek as ‘Armageddon’!

In the previous update we heard about Russia and China’s increasing influence in Africa and noted publication of a most comprehensive US Congressional testimony entitled “Moscow in the Middle East and North Africa” documenting Russia’s active, aggressive and shrewd alignment with the nations of Ezekiel, chapters 38-39. Now comes this development:

DebkaFile reports Russia lets Hezbollah-Iranian forces redeploy opposite Syrian-Israel border; in other words, it looks like Putin has reneged upon his agreement with Israel and USA (emphasis mine). This exclusive reads:

‘Deep apprehension in Israel over a Russian U-turn, which is letting small Iranian Al Qods and Hizballah units regain former positions 10-15km from the Israeli and Jordanian borders. They are coming back after Russian forces drove them out last year and established a safe zone at those border districts in their stead.

‘Reporting this turn of events, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources add that the Russian forces, not content with allowing this Iranian-Hizballah comeback, have also evacuated their own positions, leaving the local population under the control of the Al Qods and Hizballah invaders. These actions violate Russian President Vladimir Putin’s commitment last year to US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to purge S. Syrian borders of the hostile elements ruled from Tehran and provide monitors for a safe zone.

‘Washington and Jerusalem have interceded strongly with Moscow against this breach while trying to establish whether they were ordered from Putin’s office in the Kremlin or the local command on a directive from the Russian defense ministry. For now, neither the US nor Israel has decided how to respond to the new pro-Iranian buildup at Israel’s back door. They are also trying to find out if the Russian step is Moscow’s response to the US-Turkish safe zone initiative for northeastern Syria. This week, a large American unit landed in southern Turkey to start activating the joint US-Turkish safe zone, which aims to separate the Turkish army from the pro-US SDF militia which is dominated by Syrian Kurds. Moscow may have opened the door to Iran in southern Syria to counter expanding US involvement in the north.

‘Israel showed first resistance to the new hostile presence at its border on July 24 by firing surface missiles at the intelligence stations Iran was setting up on the Tal Al-Harara hilltop opposite the Golan border. But the Russian move continued notwithstanding.’

Prophecy Update #4: 1997 Dennis Cramer prophecy for England

Geoffrey Pick, editor of UK Prophetic Words and FB’s ‘Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival’ draws attention to a prophetic word published on The Elijah List in 2005, but which was first received in 1997 by Dennis Cramer.  “That was a time”, says Geoff, “When prophecy over the UK was rare here … we are already in the season of some of this word and will be entering into the best of the healings to come soon – welcome Holy Spirit, glorify Jesus over our land – Prophets have a major role in protecting the nation.”  AMEN.

Moreover, I recall 1997 was when I witnessed Smith-Wigglesworth’s prayer partner in rapture with the same absolutely awesome vision of Britain in the far future that the evangelist-healer had been given.

At this moment in our history, Dennis’ reference to God dealing with our nation’s rotten political system is bang-on target in view of the unprecedented shaking we’re now going through!!

Background

First, here’s Steve Schulz’ introduction to his republishing on 14 July 2005 what Dennis had brought earlier. (Visitor’s to my blog’s Library may recall references to Chuck Pierce and the terrorist attacks on London Transport – 2005 ‘shelf’ refers.)

‘I was in Europe when the attacks came to London last week. It’s interesting that, before I flew away three weeks ago, I set my Elijah List publishing staff down and told them, “If while I’m gone there is a 9/11-type of attack anywhere, this is how you are to handle it, because I may or may not have access to the Internet.” They did a splendid job, by the way . . .

‘Among other instructions I gave them, I told them, “If some attack occurs, call Chuck Pierce’s office first to see if God has given anything to him.” God woke Chuck Pierce up at 4:30 AM the morning of the London Attacks. And Chuck rushed out the revelation through the Elijah List and several other outlets. Now, on the day of the one-week “anniversary” of that attack on London, I’ve arrived back home. You can read that word at:http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word.html?ID=3217.

‘There was a message waiting for me when I arrived home last night from Denny Cramer, a prophet that I’ve ministered for many years with. We carry several of his books, including the one that this England word below was excerpted from his best-selling book, THE NEXT 100 YEARS. In this book are many profound prophecies about many cities, states, and countries around the world.

‘Dennis’ message left on my voicemail suggested I look at what he’d written in 1997 about England, including his references to what would happen to England regarding events from revival to terrorist attacks, which would bring England to the brink of war.’

1997 PROPHETIC WORD CONCERNING GREAT BRITAIN

England: A Preparer of the Church 
England will become a great “exporter” to the world-wide Christian Church. She will export a new breed of apostles, a new model of preachers, and an army of women evangelists.

A Healing Anointing
Unusual healings will take place in cities all across England. Specific cities will be known as healing centers for specific diseases. Many people will be healed on their way to these geographical locations – before they even arrive!

Incredible supernatural demonstrations of God’s power will free many from lifelong ailments in an instant, and people from around the world will come to drink of these healing waters made available by a loving, caring God.

As this healing anointing spreads, city after city will witness inconceivable, unimaginable, divine healings that will set the standard for power evangelism around the world. As a result, these cities will birth a new breed of power evangelists, many of them women.

These highly prophetic women will take this healing anointing throughout Europe and Asia, then around the world! Specifically, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Russia, Romania, Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic will benefit from the overflow of this English revival.

Standing Guard
As England is sovereignly blessed within her borders, foreign powers outside her borders will rise up against her.

England will be targeted by non-Christian nations, especially Islamic nations, who will push her to the brink of war. Some of her former allies, however, will stand by and mock her. [Emphases mine]

In the face this assault, Christians from around the world will unite in intercession, and England will be spared. Her biggest ally of all, the United States, will stand faithfully by her side militarily, politically, and spiritually.

As foreign tensions mount, a group of valuable “watchman” type prophets will stand guard over England, issuing accurate prophetic warnings to the nation. Even now God is issuing such a warning against a new insidious form of terrorism that will strike against England’s population.

God says to England, “Guard yourself against foreign terrorism, especially in the cities of your northeastern coast. Don’t be fooled by the past. Nations who claim to be your friends will prove otherwise.”

The Hand of God
Economically, England will enter the 21st century stronger than ever. When other allies are not doing well economically, she will prosper. This will be a supernatural sign from God.

National illnesses – physical ailments that have gone unchecked for years – will suddenly decrease as God’s mercy falls on England. Her national birth-rate will increase dramatically -a blessing from God.

Even new oil reserves will be discovered off her shores. Finally, God will clean up her political process, eliminating corruption and greed, making England an example for other nations to follow.

Clearly, the hand of God will be on England in a special way. She must remember to whom much is given, much will be required.

RB Note: Some ask did Dennis mean just England, or the whole of the UK & NI. In my opinion, and judging from Tony Puccio’s remarks concerning his references to England, this is normally American shorthand for Britain, unless specific reference clearly applies; eg. as in Tony’s accurate dreams about Big Ben.

Satan’s strategy made plain for ALL to see in Sri Lanka

A few years ago I considered how the enemy of our souls wants to avoid its foretold demise in the Lake of Fire, and this would be done primarily through anti-Semitism and increasing persecution of Christians, especially attacks upon churches and communities. This developed into a 3-part theme that looked at modern evidence and the myths of Muslim ‘history’ and attitudes towards Christian crusades of survival, which then got confirmed by an anti-terrorism summit.

In that year of 2015 so much was happening to demonstrate the reality of those suppositions that I blogged another tripartite series The ‘Endgame’ Gets Ramped Up Another Level.

The mass-murder of men, women and children in Sri Lanka is the latest tragedy, but the plain fact it took place whilst they celebrated the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from death and His victory over satan through redeeming humanity from its authority and grip, demonstrates the attacks were satanic in nature and perpetrated by demonised humans – those whose lives have been perverted by demonic lies into hatred and destruction of anything to do with Jesus Christ and Christianity.

Moreover, they are aided and abetted by those stooges who daren’t and cannot admit to, much less recognise, the Truth of God, His Son our Saviour, His Holy Spirit and sacred scriptures. I mean mealy-mouthed politicians and media who control free-speech by criminalising critics of any religion that teaches hatred and murder!

Here’s Revd Gavin Ashenden (extra emphases mine):

‘One of the Sunday school teachers in the Church in Sri Lanka has written about what they were doing on Easter day.

“Today at Zion Church we asked the children, ‘how many of you would be willing to die for Christ?’ Everyone raised their hands. Minutes later we took them into the main service. The blast happened. Half of them died on the spot.”

‘In one of the two other Catholic Churches that were blown up, the bomber waited until the children had come back into the main liturgy before he detonated. Killing the children appeared to have been a priority to him.

‘Some people may have been surprised by the UK Government’s initiative that lay behind Jeremy Hunt writing forty letters to a variety of Christians and agencies offering support for Christians in their persecution. Not many people are aware that Christians are the most persecuted religion in the world today.

Last year, over 300 Christians were assassinated each month. 245 million Christians were persecuted by either their neighbours or the state they lived in.

‘At first sight, it seems odd that the world’s largest religion should be the target of so much hatred and violence. But at the risk of drawing lines in history that are too sharp, it seems that there are three figures who stand as major figures of history and their teaching and influence drive the values of their followers.

‘They are Jesus, Mohammed and Karl Marx. Their followers are Christians, Muslims and Communists. In terms of violence, Christians are the odd ones out. 

Jesus taught his followers never to use violence, but only humility and compassion. There is no sanctioned violence in the New Testament. 

‘But there is in the Koran. 

Mohammed told his followers to offer non–Muslims the chance to convert, and if they didn’t, to use violence to make them. Islam swept through the known world carried by armies who did just that. 

Marx also was a proponent of violence. He called his followers to armed revolution, and in the twentieth century, they obeyed with alacrity. But with Communism the killing didn’t stop with the revolution. It continued. In the Little Black Book of Communism Stephane Courtois estimates that the sum total of deaths communism caused, with its genocides, forced famines and executions, to be over 94 million.

‘Bill Warner in his book The Islamic Trilogy estimates the death toll of non-believers at the hands of Islam, between its founding in 610 and 2006, to be more than 270 million non-Muslims. 

‘It’s not easing off; from 2001 to 2017, Islamic activists carried out more than 32,000 attacks that killed more than 85,000 innocent and unsuspecting civilians. The Intelligence Services in the UK have identified 23,000 jihadist ‘extremists’ of whom 3,000 are believed to pose an active threat to their non-Muslim neighbours.

‘It is perfectly true that Christianity has blood on its hands too. But the distinction is that with the exception of the self-defence, the violence has been mainly instigated by the State rather than the Church. There are no Christian jihadists, no Christian terrorist bombers. And if there were, the New Testament would be held up to them to show they had no right to call themselves followers of Jesus or Christians at all. In other words when Communists and Muslims engage in violence they can justify it by appealing to Marx and Mohammed; but when Christians turn to violence, they can’t. It is forbidden.

‘So in part it is the use of violence sanctioned both by Marx and Mohammed, that has meant that Christians have become the most persecuted group in the world today.

What is very odd beyond that is the way in which the media and the politicians do all they can to avoid telling the truth about it. The media avoid the “M’ word as long as it can. The child abusers of Rotherham were called ‘Asian’ to the deep distress of Sikhs and Buddhists. The BBC said it had no idea who on earth would even think of sending suicide bombers into Sri Lankan churches for as long as it could. !!!!

‘When the dreadful killing in Christchurch happened the media instantly named the victims as Muslims. In Sri Lanka suddenly the euphemism ‘Easter worshippers’ was used. Imagine the outcry if the media has called the victims in the Mosque at Christchurch ‘Ramadan worshippers’?

‘Why is there such a reluctance to acknowledge that both Communism and Islam resort to violence to the extent that they do? In the same week as the New Zealand atrocity where 50 Muslims were killed by a lone gunman, African Muslims murdered 120 Nigerian Christians and the world’s media kept it secret. 

‘With very rare exceptions, Christians do not kill Muslims or Communists. Both Communists (currently in China) and Muslims kill Christians on an industrial scale. As the Sunday School teacher said, Christians are taught to be willing to be martyrs for Jesus. Unlike Muslims they are not taught to make martyrs of others. Why won’t the media and the politicians tell the truth about it?

Footnote: According to the extensive database maintained by The Religion of Peace, there’s been over 34,900 terror attacks by Muslims since the infamous 9/11 atrocity.

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.”

EU Foreign Policy head Federica Mogherini in Cuba, January 2018. (AFP/Adalberto Roque)

‘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!]

History in the making: Trump terminates US role in ‘nuclear deal’ with Iran

Thirty years ago my jaw dropped upon seeing an utterly amazing ‘coincidence’ between a book I was reading (The Invisible Hand) and a video of Iran’s elite troops rehearsing an attack upon, and liberation of, Jerusalem (see ‘Bio’ ). After many years watching the malign machinations of that regime, I’m pleased there’s now a non-Israeli world leader adamantly refusing to tolerate Iranian terrorism AND is already taking action – with Britain and France! – as well as knowing those ‘Twelvers’ hell-bent eschatological motives! [See Iranian Leader’s End-times Declaration & ‘Mahdi’ tag]. Here’s Joel Rosenberg’s on yesterday’s announcement:

(Jerusalem, Israel) — After a careful policy review by senior administration officials, and consultation with a wide range of U.S. allies, President Donald Trump today kept his promise by announcing the U.S. will terminate the nuclear deal that President Obama and Secretary John Kerry negotiated with Iran. The President also announced the U.S. will imposing […]

Strong warning to anti-Semites: you are in personal post-mortem peril

Wed 18th April: in view of the banner headlines in today’s newspapers I’m sticking this post dated 26 March to the blog’s home page (click image for today’s online edition)…

Labour MPs have turned on 
Jeremy Corbyn over his “betrayal” of Jews as they described rape and death threats they had received for speaking out against anti-Semitism in their party. Mr Corbyn sat in the Commons in silence as his MPs read out hate mail they had received from his supporters. Others received standing ovations for calling out the “bullying and intimidation” in the party as the Labour leader was told: “Enough is enough.”

Urgent prayer call for protection of USA and President Trump – Veronika West

AN URGENT WORD FOR THE NATION OF AMERICA….”THE ENEMY IS COMING LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT”…!

I was woken very early hours of this morning with an urgency to pray for the Nation of America, as I began to pray I heard the Spirit say,

“SET WATCHMAN ON THE WALLS, GIRD UP YOUR ARMOUR, LIFT UP YOUR SHIELDS, FORTIFY THE GATES OF YOUR CITIES, BRACE, BRACE FOR THE ENEMY IS COMING LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT”!

As I heard these words, I began to pray fervently for God’s hedge of protection around the Nation, then I saw in the Spirit a strategic and carefully planned attack of the enemy begin to unfold in the Nation. Then I saw the enemy coming as a thief in the night, the attack came unexpected and with great force and with great violence. Now as I stayed praying I saw two Government buildings, I saw the White House and what looked like an official Government type place (unsure what building exactly) but then I heard these words,

“Watch and Pray America for 2018 will be the Year that an Assignment of the enemy to Assassinate the President will be hatched, but FEAR NOT for My Hand shall PROTECT AND PRESERVE HIS LIFE AND THAT OF HIS WHOLE HOUSEHOLD”!

PLEASE STAND TO PRAY WITH ME IN THIS HOUR FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP, HIS ADMINISTRATION AND LET US STAND AGAINST THIS PRE-PLANNED ATTACK OF THE ENEMY THAT IS CLOSE TO UNFOLDING.

PS 7/3 – See Charlie Shamp, 19 Feb 2018: 2-Tiered Attack upon Trump Administration

Bible Update: Zecharia 2:8 and 8:8 – EU supports Palestine against Israel

For thus said the Lord of Hosts, after [His] glory had sent me [His messenger] to the nations who plundered you – for he who touches you touches the apple or pupil of His eye: “Behold I will swing my hand over them and they shall become plunder for those who served them. Then you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent me. Sing and rejoice, O Daughter of Zion: for behold I come, and I will dwell in the midst of you, says the Lord. (Zech 2:7-9 Amplified Bible)

Chapter 8 of the Book of Zecharia is sub-headed ‘Jerusalem, Holy City of the Future’ in the NKJV and verse 8 (NB: that number once again!!) reads:

“I will bring them back, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. They shall be my people and I will be their God in truth and righteousness.”

The Palestinian leadership and that of the European Union refuse to recognise and stand upon the Word of God, being defiantly and resolutely against it. But for blogging on a God-incidental validation of a personal debate I would have reported more fully on this issue sooner.  So as an aside I wrote about the EU’s official reaction to developments, viz:

‘On his recent (early December) visit to Europe PM Netanyahu encouraged its leaders to be open to Donald Trump’s recognising the reality of Jerusalem being Israel’s capital. But Europe’s foreign policy chief rejected his plea outright.  Did you know this person’s office and authority are established through the EU’s (more properly Western Assembly’s) ‘Recommendation 666’?  – my email April 2009 Not Many People Know: 2 refers (also see this useful summary dated 2006).’

In The Apocalypse, or ‘Revelation of Jesus Christ’, ‘666’ is the Number of the Beast out of the earth that serves the demonic dragon (ie. satan), and which some refer to as ‘The Antichrist’ (Rev 13:11-18).

This week Koenig’s World Watch Daily displays two headline reports on 10 January:

Norway, EU Call Meeting in Bid to ‘Speed Up’ Efforts for 2-State Solution

EU Foreign Policy head Federica Mogherini in Cuba, Jan 2018. (AFP/Adalberto Roque)

‘Norway and the European Union said Wednesday they would convene an “extraordinary session” of donor countries to the Palestinians, saying efforts to reach a peace deal needed to be hurried up.

‘The meeting of the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee, to be held on January 31 in Brussels, is also meant to discuss the need to “enable the Palestinian Authority to execute full control over Gaza” based on the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation deal signed in Cairo on October 12, 2017.

“There is an urgent need to bring all parties together to discuss measures to speed up efforts that can underpin a negotiated two-state solution,” the EU said in a statement.

Netanyahu Hails US Envoy for Telling Truth about Palestinians Rejecting Peace

Ambassador David Friedman said Hamas’ glorification of attacks and PA’s paying terrorists a monthly stipend is to blame for stagnated peace process

The previous day’s KWWD home page has:

Erekat: No Peace Talks Until US Revokes Jerusalem Recognition

‘Top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat on Tuesday said the Palestinians would reject all United States-sponsored peace talks until Washington rescinded its December 6 recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“The continued American talk about deals to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict or calling for negotiations or talks is unacceptable to the Palestinian leadership, as long as Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is not revoked,” Erekat told the official Voice of Palestine radio station, according to the official PA news site Wafa.

‘When US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, he “removed Jerusalem from any negotiations,” said Erekat.’

Previous reports are also directly relevant to our headline scripture:

CONCLUSION

Europe’s response to President Trump’s announcement on Jerusalem has been far more extreme, violent and outspoken than the response of the Arab world. Thus writes ‘ne plus ultra’ journalist Caroline Glick, whom I highly regard and recommend for well-informed, perspicious insights, as in Europe’s War Against The Jewish State.

Let’s not forget the prophetic word delivered by David Noakes on the Lord’s urging us to ‘Come Out!’ of the EU before He brings its breakdown, of which we observe unremitting progress towards its fulfillment!

So let’s watch what The Almighty does to those who array themselves against Him…AND “Genesis 12:3 applies too!

[Update 13 Jan – see also Caroline’s latest: The Palestinians Race To The Bottom]

PRAYER ALERT: for protection of the royal family and London

I interrupt the weekend offline to alert intercessors to tentative information that’s come to light on a possible extremely explosive terrorist atrocity in central London. (Its source received a dream in August 2016 about Big Ben that subsequently proved accurate on the method of attack on Westminster Bridge seven months later.)

Therefore kindly weigh this with the Lord and consider using this prayer declaration:

‘Almighty Father, we come to You in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, and in that mighty Name we break the power of every strategy and assignment sent against the British Isles and Ireland. We pray the mighty covering of the Living Blood of Jesus Christ over our villages, towns and cities; over our coastlands, seaports and airports; over our roadways, railways and waterways and traffic thereon – as well as over ourselves and….

‘We ask You to release the angelic host to protect us from every spiritual and terrorist attack – especially members of the royal family and their premises, as well as national landmarks – and to lift each citizen above every circumstance and crisis.

‘We affirm the finished work of Christ over all demonic forces and decree: no weapon formed against the plans and purposes for the British Isles and Ireland will prosper. We also decree: no longer will violence be heard in our land, or destruction within or at our borders. We bless the atmosphere to be charged with peace and order. Amen’  (Isaiah 54:17 & 60:18)

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.”…

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…
