In wake of London attack, President Trump should deliver major address to define “radical Islamic terrorism,” the ISIS threat, and his vision for victory.

Joel Rosenberg offers an opinion and insights from his on-the-ground experience…

Coalition-AntiISIS-foreignministers

(Dallas, Texas) — Yesterday, the horrific attack in London underscored yet again the threat radical Islamic terrorism poses to our allies. We mourn for those murdered, killed and traumatized, and we pray for the Lord to comfort and heal.

The attack on our British ally was also a stark reminder that such terror could strike inside the U.S. homeland without warning if our leaders do not aggressively improve defensive measures to protect the American people, and launch far more aggressive offensive measures to decisively defeat the Islamic State and other militant Islamist groups.

UPDATE: ISIS has just claimed responsibility for the attack. “The perpetrator of the attacks yesterday in front of the British parliament in London is an Islamic State soldier and he carried out the operation in response to calls to target citizens of the coalition,” says the Amaq news agency, the ISIS press channel.

Deepest condolences to all affected by yesterday’s attack

Our deepest condolences and prayers for support during their sudden grief go to all those directly traumatised in yesterday’s unprovoked attack in the heart of London. The terrorist, a policeman, American tourist and mum on her way to collect her children were killed but, although casualties are extremely severe, it is fortunate that many more were not harmed.

It’s ironic that I’d just published a follow-up post on Big Ben by referring to when it had surprisingly stopped a couple of months before 2005’s outrage.

The above picture reminds me of the details of the dream given to a reader of this blog in Tucson, Arizona, late in August 2016, which he recalls in his latest follow-on dream I re-blogged at Big Ben Arises With Continual ‘Wake-Up’ Call. The first dream had something that “looked to be a missile” heading for the clock tower (see Tony Puccio’s original post with short discussion), which is what the black 4×4 rampaging along the pavement at 50 mph must have been like!

War Against The World

Fortunately, the rest of the dream’s collapsing tower scenario didn’t happen. Yet, if applied to current events rather than as significant at the time (parliamentary issues over brexit), it could symbolise and warn us of the dangerous, unending fundamental goal of jihadists to subdue all non-Islamic nations by war (ie. ‘Dar Al-Harb’). These retrogrades want to turn the clock back 1,500 years to the Dark Ages by matching their founder’s unholiness of waging war against those who disagree with his beliefs and claims, as recorded in the Qur’an and Hadith.

The Religion of Peace database of attacks carried out by Muslims against non-believers and against their ‘brethren’ will bring yesterday’s cowardly event to 30,500 since 9/11 – the total killed and injured over the last 15 years is many multiples of that figure!!

As this terrorism continues millions of Muslims have been questioning and rethinking their personal faith (see reference 7 below). In reference 2, historian Paul Crawford’s excellent analysis of four myths about the Crusades exposes politicians charlatanry in pinning the blame for modern Muslim’s ‘victim-hood’ upon Christians! And Dr Bill Warner’s 7 pages of historical data on The Jihad That Led To The Crusades  demonstrate ‘jihadic’ attacks and strategic advances occurred on average every 5 years over a 460 year period prior to the Crusades!

Our predecessors of a millenium ago must have been exceptionally patient, but in the end enough was enough – as it is now.

Awakening To The Truth

We know the number of Islamist fanatics is tiny compared to the majority of peace-loving believers, of whom we know a few. Many are appalled at what is being done in their name and that of their religion; eg. Muslim MP Tulip Siddiq tweets “extremists don’t speak for me”, £10,000 has been raised (new target £20k) through Muslims United for London and the Muslim Council calls it a “depraved” act (BBC Latest).

In that series of dreams about Big Ben, Tony heard it striking midnight and in the latest it gives a continual chiming and wakes people from their sleep:

“The morning of 03/11/2017 (US dating) I had another dream about Big Ben only this time I saw it arise from the clock face on the ground to  its original height, perhaps even taller. I remember hearing it bonging, however, it did not cease as one would have expected when it had chimed the hour of the day but was a continual bonging.  Then I saw people in beds asleep and I perceived that the bonging was to awaken from slumber those who were sleeping.  

“It’s my personal belief that England is going to play a significant role in the coming awakening, hence the dreams about Big Ben.”

Lastly, let’s remind ourselves of what pastor John Kilptrick heard direct from the Lord on this worldwide No 1 issue, as in His message Midnight Words for 2017 and Beyond -LOL we’re back to that ‘midnight’ theme – it must be very important!.:

MUSLIMS WILL RECEIVE THE MESSAGE  

“Because the Lord is no respecter of persons, a GREAT shaking is coming to the Muslim nations. It will be sudden! It will be an unexpected and unexplained shaking that will redefine many Muslim nations and their leadership structures. The Lord is now in the process of shaking institutions, cultures, dialects, nationalities, governments, political structures and their frameworks, which men have trusted through generations. Many of them will be so shaken they cannot survive the shaking. Holy Spirit will even destabilize power structures, and many of those things that men have relied upon will ultimately fail. Truth will grip men’s hearts like a vice, even the unbelievers’ hearts and the hearts of the heathen. Ears will be opened to hear, even the ears of the ‘unregenerates’.”

Breaking news: Iran ousted from Syria in Trump-Putin safe zones deal

Exclusive DebkaFile report ‘Trump-Putin Safe Zones Deal Ousts Iran From Syria’ opens as follows:

syria-per-debka

‘Syria stands on the threshold of dramatic changes that will directly impact on the strategic and military situation along the Syrian borders with Israel and Jordan, debkafile reports exclusively. They derive from a deal struck this week by US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to establish US, Russian and Turkish security zones in Syria. This scheme will transfer military control of the country to those three powers. Each of them will be responsible for a zone whose borders will be defined and agreed upon by Washington, Moscow and Ankara.

‘As part of this arrangement, all forces from the Iranian military, the pro-Iranian Shiite militias and Hizballah will be required to leave Syria…’ continue reading.

Prayer alert against attacks upon Western nations

Intercessors and prayer warriors may want to weigh the details of a poignant dream that came to Veronika West on Monday about the possibility of undetected threats of attacks upon Britain, Germany, France, Israel and USA – and Australia -as in her post PRAY: THE SUBMARINES ARE COMING.

Also, I’m reminded of dreams in 2012 that Tony Puccio had about a coming submarine attack but which ‘surfaced’ again a few months ago, as here.

Archbishop blasts the EU and recognises Isil as Islamic

Another public event concurrent with ‘heaven’s breaking news’ that the worm (satan) has turned is Archbishop Justin Welby’s address a week ago today at the Catholic Institute of Paris, where he received an honorary doctorate.

His full address on the common good and a shared vision for the next century is well worth taking time to read. Allow me to comment briefly upon aspects our national press picked up and which may relate to the recent prophetic word brought by Heidi Baker on an awakening in Europe and in the Anglicans.

Maybe His Grace has found himself turning into the fresh winds of change that the Lord has brought?

Contrary to our understanding of God’s deep desire for the UK to be freed from its deep entanglement with the EU,  the Telegraph’s religious affairs editor John Bingham notes,

‘Although he voted for the UK to remain in the European Union, his lecture contained a scathing critique of “centralisation, corruption and bureaucracy” in the EU. He said millions in Greece in particular were suffering because of the actions of European decision-makers who had urged it to join the euro on a “false prospectus” and ultimately turned the entire country (the origin of democracy. RB) into the “biggest debtor’s prison in European history”…’

Justin even joined the very wide circle of sensible people who are fully aware of the nature, teachings and history of Islam and who have been insisting that politicians have been causing immense mischief and harm by disingenuously reiterating that terrorism by Muslims has nothing to do with the tenets of Islam itself.

To grasp his perspective on this we need to note how he introduces that matter within the topic of ‘The State of Europe: religiously motivated violence’ – not forgetting his deep personal horror at last year’s barbarity at the Bataclan. I quote direct from his address, as published on his website (emphases added).:

img0o4trdcw“It is a legitimate to therefore ask: how can we expect to respond effectively to religiously-motivated violence across our continent if we don’t have the ability to understand it? You here have experienced it in all its fury and terrible cruelty. Even watching the anniversary celebrations in England we felt again the horror and wept. How we feel for you!

“As such, one of the major challenges is to work out how we talk about religion in Europe. On a continent that is seeing growing secularism and apathy (in some cases outright hostility) towards religion and religious people, a challenge for all of us here today is to find new ways to share our religious vocabulary with the rest of the continent.

“This also means feeling confident to talk about the Judeo-Christian tradition of our continent and why this tradition needs to be reflected in our understanding of Europe. This is not – for those concerned – a call for a return to Christendom, but being open about our tradition and heritage – both the good and the bad.

“In a speech I gave in September to head teachers of Church of England schools, I said – uncontroversially in my view – that in order to defeat terrorism, we need to understand the mind-set of those who perpetrate it. To my surprise, a small number of media commentators viewed my comments as appeasing terrorists and their acts. However depraved it may be, groups like ISIS have an ideology, indeed a theology – which is at the heart of their propaganda, and therefore the driving force – which holds an apocalyptic understanding of human history, not as a loose term but in its strictest technical terms: they believe that the world is about to end, that the Prophet will return with Jesus, and will defeat the western powers.

“It’s very difficult to understand the things that impel people to some of the dreadful actions that we have seen over the last few years unless you have some sense of religious literacy. You may reject and condemn it – that’s fine – but you still need to understand what they’re talking about.

“And in order to understand, religious people in Europe must regain the ability to share our religious vocabulary with the rest of the continent. If we treat religiously-motivated violence solely as a security issue, or a political issue, then it will be incredibly difficult – probably impossible – to overcome it. A theological voice needs to be part of the response, and we should not be bashful in offering that.

This requires a move away from the argument that has become increasingly popular, which is to say that ISIS is ‘nothing to do with Islam’, or that Christian militia in the Central African Republic are nothing to do with Christianity, or Hindu nationalist persecution of Christians in South India is nothing to do with Hinduism. Until religious leaders stand up and take responsibility for the actions of those who do things in the name of their religion, we will see no resolution.”

In toto, Justin Welby is encouraging a fresh vision for Europeans to aspire to: “One that is unwaveringly committed to the common good and to the flourishing of all”.

Perhaps the Lord is moving His servant towards speaking with a prophetical voice, one akin to the Old Testament prophets for the good of our nation. May Our Father grant him a blessed vision for Britain as He sees us – and recognising the fact that Brexit IS an ‘act of God’ that challenges churches’.

Finally, let me point to the IMF’s warning from its first managing director and deputy chief, David Lipton, that Europe’s failure to break its anaemic economic is of greater concern for global stability than Brexit!

The Iran Nuclear Deal “Looks Worse and Worse by the Day”

More bad fruit from Obama’s furtive back-channel dealings with Iran, as reported in email 18 May 2009, plus their current harassment of US naval vessels in Persian Gulf. ADD to that leaked intelligence of Iran’s covert war in Syria run from ‘The Glasshouse’ near Damascus (Daily Mail). AND let’s never forget Iran’s 30 years-long ambition to attack Jerusalem, which is what stimulated my interest in End-Times! (See The Invisible Hand re-appears (2013) and again in 2015 for peculiar ‘coincidental’ way this fact pops up!) See Four ‘Signposts’ of the Books of Daniel and The Apocalypse for introduction to Mark Davidson’s thesis.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

The quote above was spoken by retired Army General Michael Flynn; this reported by a Reuters story.

According to a report replaced by Washington think tank, the Institute for Science and International Security, the Obama administration and other European governments acted in secret to let Iran keep more of its enriched uranium so that sanctions could be lifted on time. The Obama administration (of course) denies this.

Specifically the report says,

“Among the exemptions outlined in the think tank’s report were two that allowed Iran to exceed the deal’s limits on how much low-enriched uranium (LEU) it can keep in its nuclear facilities, the report said. LEU can be purified into highly enriched, weapons-grade uranium.”

The Reuters article also states,

“It’s now clear President Obama gave away the store to secure a weak agreement that is full of loopholes.”

If the nuclear deal was bad before, how much worse…

Monday morning newsmix: Iran – exposure of deceit…

Hand with News icon - WatcharakunOne of my browser’s home page tabs covers World Watch Daily and after a weekend offline, except for the vital Vision Over Britain, I find these chronological headlines since Thursday:

Hmm, interesting – claim and counter-claim. Or, lie versus truth?

In May’s closing days I asked Is the Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? UK/USA – next EU? and so a week later “The Cat’s Out of the Bag!” on the last. And recently the IMF admits disastrous love affair with Euro and apologises for immolation of Greece!

And don’t forget the stunning prophetic paragraph from 2013 that got unearthed on the day David Cameron announced his earlier-than-expected resignation (Fulfilled Prophecy #8):

“I will surprise you with the leaders of nations. I have ways to cause leaders that have been promoted to bow their knees. You will think they’re going one way, but you watch Me knock the feet out from under them; you watch them see Me in a way they’ve never seen Me before!” 

What makes you think we may not have seen the end of the Lord’s promised action…? First the UK and next the USA…

Brussels bursts the balloon of theological speculation!

Do this week’s dreadful events in Brussels expose theological errors on the rise of the Antichrist? In my opinion, yes.

eu-and-is

The flags of the EU and of ISIS, courtesy The Four Signposts

As there’s neither time or opportunity to expand upon this claim in depth let me stir your thoughts on a few points.

Students of Bible prophecy know theologians have long-held to the idea that scripture, especially the Books of Daniel and The Apocalypse, foretells the revival of the defunct, ancient Roman Empire. Consequently, the post-WWII Treaty of Rome and creation of the European Union was seen by most modern theologians and teachers on prophecy as the re-birth of that empire, from which the Antichrist would emerge as a world leader. The prophetic corpus explains all the disastrous consequences that would attend such a scenario as a result of a leader’s assumption of totalitarian power and subsequent attacks upon Jews and the state of Israel.

However, since the turn of the Century an increasing number of scholars have posited a different explanation of prophecy; one more in keeping with the geopolitical realities about which it foretells. Namely, Israel and its Middle-Eastern milieu. That is, the nature of Islam makes it, or a part of it, rather than the EU the source of the person to fulfill that prophesied role.

Invisible HandPreviously I’ve noted the author of the book that started my journey, The Invisible Hand, drew attention to the modern ascendancy of Islam, although he followed others’ assumptions about the roles of Europe and of Russia. Even so, as shown in US Presidents’ Actions Relate to Daniel’s Visions, Victor Dunstan’s world scenario drawn in mid-1980s closes: ‘The personification of the Beast will take control of the revived Islamic Empire’!

In fact, this week’s attacks upon Brussels, where the EU’s head is located, symbolise a spiritual conflict and contest between those two candidates for Antichrist!! And this precludes any consideration of the exceptional vulnerability brought about by European defiance of scripture in its anti-Israel policies, as considered earlier in this blog, and the latest illegality of which the Daily Mail published recently.

daniel-revisited-cover-smallAuthor of Daniel Revisited, Mark Davidson considers this theological question and briefly explains in The Attacks in Brussels and Paris, and Rome vs. Islam why Europe can no longer be considered as the source of the infamous biblical personage:

‘If Europe was truly the future power base of the Antichrist, wouldn’t it at least have some vestige of outrage calling for a military confrontation? Why aren’t the Germans, French, Belgians, Dutch and Brits calling for forming a 200,000-man army and smashing the teeth in of Islamic State, the source du jour of Islamic jihadists, um, I mean, terrorists? It’s because Europe is simply not the future power base of the Antichrist. Islam is.

‘The future power base of the Antichrist is the one doing the bombing. And it just occurred to me that these attacks – claimed by IS – are yet another data point showing in reality what is really happening right before our eyes. If you knew nothing of Bible prophecy, which political sphere of influence might have the culture and attitude to support the Antichrist’s ambitions? The Continent tired of war, or the Realm that is in places acting like a wild beast wanting to rip into its victims?’ (Read the full article by clicking above title.)

A Muslim Perspective

Now consider the secular opinion of the Muslim and Pakistan-born author, columnist and broadcaster and a founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress – Tarek Fatah. His article Brussels: Another Wake-up Call in Toronto Sun opens:

‘Another day, another city, yet the script that started unfolding in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam in 1998 and that shocked the world on 9/11 in New York is the same — jihadi killers let loose on unsuspecting “infidels”. On Tuesday, Belgium’s capital of Brussels fell in line with London, Madrid, and Paris as Western capitals brought to their knees by jihadi terrorists seeking the annihilation of Western civilization.

‘If the actions committed by the soldiers of international jihad were predictable, the reaction of Western leaders was also familiar to ordinary, anxious citizens of North America and Europe – cowardice wrapped in political correctness…(Emphasis added)

‘As anger at the inability of Western countries to fight the spread of jihadi Islamism grows, the reaction of their leaders has numbed into cliché-ridden rhetoric…When (leaders) of the free world (are) careful not to name the entity that attacks the U.S. and its allies, how can we expect to defeat this evil cancer that keeps spreading?

‘Imagine President Franklin D. Roosevelt not naming the Nazi regime of Germany as the enemy Americans (and British Commonwealth) fought and laid down their lives to fight against in the Second World War.’

In closing let me quote Archbishop Justin Welby:

“In the great Holy Week of Christian prayer and mercy, the Brussels attacks shock all those who seek peace and justice through the terrible cruelty and utter separation from all that is of God. Once again we see the contrast between the vain efforts to terrify through indiscriminate murder, and the call of God to be those who show mercy, who seek peace and pursue it. Let us at every service this week pray for those caught up in the traumatic events at the airport and in the City of Brussels.”

Let us pray also for all our political leaders and ministers to repent of repudiating Christ and that all resolve to uphold and follow rather than negate and ridicule Gospel truths – amen.

UPDATE 4/4/16

“I will make you (Abram and descendants through Isaac) a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you”… (Gen 12:2-3 NKJV)

For the day of the LORD is near upon all the nations is near: as you have done (to Israel), it shall be done to you; your reprisal shall return upon your own head (Obadiah 1:15 NKJV)

Soeren Kern, Why Belgium is Ground-Zero for European Jihadis:

The terrorist attacks on the airport and metro in Brussels are casting a spotlight, once again, on Belgium’s ignominious role as a European haven for jihadists. Several distinct but interconnected factors help explain why Brussels, the political capital of Europe, has emerged as the jihadist capital of Europe

American intelligence official: “When we have to contact these people [European officials] or send our guys over to talk to them, we’re essentially talking with people who are… children. These are not pro-active, they don’t know what’s going on. They’re in such denial. It’s such a frightening thing to admit their country is being taken over.”

Caroline Glick, The Consequences of Anti-Zionism:

…In the aftermath of the ISIS attacks in Brussels, will Europeans demand to know why European resources are being used to fund espionage against the IDF on the one hand, and Palestinian security services that commit murder and support jihad on the other?

Just as Ad Kan’s revelations indicate that law breaking, while not intrinsic to the operations of anti-Zionist, EU-funded Israeli groups, so it would seem that while not intrinsic to anti-Zionist foreign policies, governments that are hostile to Israel tend to have incoherent and incompetent policies for  contending with the threat of jihad.

This of course, is eminently predictable. After all, if you believe that Israel is the cause of the pathologies of the Islamic world, then you will likely be blind to the nature of the jihadist threat and the danger it poses to your nation.

Following the ISIS strikes in Brussels, both Israeli and American security experts spoke bitterly of the ineptitude of Belgian security services. It is not that the forces themselves are incompetent. Rather, the experts said, their political leadership refuses to allow them to take the actions necessary to protect their country.

The Belgians, like their European brethren generally, refuse to deal with jihad. Instead of acknowledging and dealing forthrightly with the phenomenon, they seek every possible excuse to ignore it.

According to senior government officials, the Belgians are among the most vociferous foes of Israel in the EU. Europe’s obsessive castigation of Israel is a central aspect of their jihad avoidance strategy. If Israel is to blame for everything, then they can save themselves by pouring billions of euros on the PA and by funding Israeli anti-Zionist subversives.

This position is of course irrational and by clinging to it, the Europeans have enabled the jihadist forces arrayed against them to gather and grow…

2016 prophetic word and 11-year cycles

Doug_Addison credit Elijah ListOn 12th January Doug Addison published 2016: Get Ready for Realignments and New Assignments, which refers to a cyclical activity of the Lord throughout the 20th Century. It just so happens that early posts on this blog may confirm his thesis.

To read the full word Doug brings, click its above title. After mentioning major adjustments for many folk in how we regard and operate in church, this word covers a number of matters at length. He refers to an encounter on Christmas Day which gave him an insight into Bob Jones’ ‘Lumber-yard Experience’. Also, leading up to that Doug sensed a “distant rumble in the spirit” of the Lord coming and that His “glory is returning like never before”(!), adding this noteworthy caveat: “It is not coming in the current Church structure, though churches are invited“.  Another of the several details of this word is that keys of authority have been reassigned….“God is lining things up for a breakthrough in March!”

Now here’s what’s of special relevance. Doug explains,

Why 2016 Could Be The Start Of Something New

“The last global movement of God’s power started 22 years ago this month in January 1994 with the Toronto Blessing. It was very powerful and lasted a few years [over 10! RB] but was eventually spoken against and some major leaders disassociated themselves with it. This caused division and even brought judgment on the ministries and churches of those who spoke against what God was doing. This amazing move of God got bound by people with keys and authority and the result is that we have not seen a sustained global movement of God for 22 years. This is related to the keys that I saw being redistributed.

“There has been a move of God every 11 years dating back to the Azusa Street Revival in 1906. The 11-year intervals fall on the 1950 Healing Movement, the 1961 Charismatic Renewal, the 1972 Jesus People Movement and in 1983, the Third Wave Charismatic Movement. 1994 had the Toronto Blessing and 11 years later there would have been a movement that actually did start around 2005. But this amazing movement from God never got off the ground because of judgments. It was cut short, judged and bound by those with the keys of authority. The 2005 move started with unusual signs of God’s glory such as gold fillings appearing in people’s mouths, gold dust and gemstones appearing supernaturally in meetings. But the move never went global as God intended and was very limited. It is now 11 years after 2005, which is 2016 and there is a move of God coming this year. It will be with fire and oil from Heaven that cannot be touched by those who have not been prepared. This is what I saw in my Christmas morning encounter—an angel measuring for it and worker angels being assigned to bring it about.”

Being my birthday’s date, the opening reference to ’22’ naturally caught my attention right away (as well as being the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet). Next, Doug’s count of 11 years reminded me I’d written about the same periodicity soon after starting this blog. (Anyone who took up my 7th Anniversary hint to check the outlines in Cycles & Time will be ready for what’s below.)

[Also, Paul Keith Davis has said 11 years after the birth of modern Pentecostalism in 1885 at Bethshan Conference on Holiness and Healing in London, saw the publication in 1896 of Theodore Herzl’s famous call, The Jewish State. That year also saw Alexander Dowie commission his apostolic church calling for a return to an apostolic period”; see ‘Days of Wonder’, August 2014.]

Other 11-year Cycles

BillKoenig_hdrOn 5th January 2012 in Points to ponder: 2011-12 and Biblical historical/financial cycles I introduced my first readers to The White House accredited Christian correspondent William Koenig (Bio here) and his deep investigation of the work of Erik Hadik. Briefly outlining the nature of cycles I referred to their effects not only upon the environment but also upon our political and economical activity. For example, the cycle of conflict in the Middle-East corresponds closely with the 11-year sunspot cycle.

For almost  20 years this publisher of Koenig World Watch Daily and weekly Koenig’s Eye View from the White House has monitored important matters relating to Israel and likely connections with Biblical teaching and prophecy. That is, the simultaneous, or following closely, linkage between the way Israel is treated and various upheavals elsewhere has been found to be highly probable.

Moreover, a database of empirical evidence amassed from business affairs and observing international events gives a firm foundation for theories of cyclical influences.

Later that year, in concluding Paws 4 thought: weather quakes and cycles I referred again to Erik’s findings and quoted specifics on that 11-year period, as cited by Bill:

  • end of WWII – 1945, adding 11 years:
  • Suez War – 1956, another 11 years:
  • Six Days War – 1967, plus 11 years:
  • Camp David Accords – 1978-1979 (also Iran’s Islamic Revolution):
  • Persian Gulf War / Desert Storm (Part I) – 1990-91, another 11 years:
  • Sept 11th 2001 terror events and subsequent Afghan and Iraq wars (Part II).
  • 2012 – may introduce Persian Gulf Wars Part III? – Sunni/Shiite conflict?

Hadik claims the above dates are, in fact, preceded by those for the Palestine mandate (1922) and Hitler’s ascension (1933).  Furthermore, there is a 50/100 year cycle of major wars. He cites the Napoleonic war of 1812, US Civil War (1861-65), the Balkan Wars of 1912 as the real start of WWI,  1961-2 Cuban missile crisis and SE Asian wars.  2012 next!  (Source: page 5 of Hadik’s Earth in Transition 3+3 II.)

An Accurate 11-year Forecast

On 5th September 2012 Bill hit the nail of the head! I blogged about receiving his News Alert forecasting another ‘historical day’ in connection with Israel, militant Islam and the USA. It was headed:

  • A New World Order Speech – Major Terror Attacks – Is Something Coming?
  • 9-11-1990 plus 11 years = 9-11-2001 plus 11 years = 9-11-2012

On 11th September 2012, the American embassy in Egypt and consulate in Libya were besieged by Islamist mobs. This led to the cold-blooded murder of Ambassador Stevens and three consular staff in Benghazi. Hence, the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attack in New York became another date in infamy for the Middle-East.

Conclusion

So, in view of a demonstrable historical record for the 11-year cycle we can validate and give credence to Doug Addison’s claim about the importance of 2016 as another ‘peak’ in activity of a spiritual 11-year cycle. It is one to rejoice over rather than despair over…

Thank and praise you Lord for your mercy and grace and what You’re doing in the earth.

Jordan’s king warns of “civil war” inside Islam, says Jordan has reached “the boiling point”

Just in from ICEJ News: ‘Jordanian security officials reported Wednesday morning that they had thwarted a plan by the Islamic State (IS) terror militia to attack several targets in the country…’ (see Reuters).  Joel’s next post provides details of this 11-hour battle.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

KingAbdullah-Obama-OvalOffice-Feb2016(Jerusalem, Israel) — For months now, Jordan’s King Abdullah II has been urgently warning Western leaders in blunt and stark language that the tidal wave of Syrian refugees into his country and the barbaric violence of the Islamic State poses a clear and present danger to his kingdom. He needs significantly more military and financial assistance than he is currently getting, and he needs it quickly.

ISIS is engaged in “a third world war” against the West and moderate Sunni Arab governments like his own, says the 54 year old monarch.

Jordan has reached “the boiling point,” he adds. “Jordanians are suffering….and sooner or later I think the dam is going to burst.”

Yesterday – 2nd item

Facebook is weird – well my blog’s page is. It doesn’t work like normal personal profiles and timelines as it got set up as a business page. I comment on some Facebook pages but can’t on others, and although I ‘like’ others’ pages I’ve yet to find a way to get their updates. So I check Facebook occasionally. Yesterday was the first time this week and I was nudged to check what Canon Andrew White may have posted on his page. I was amazed to read his latest:

“23 February: WELL IT IS NOW OFFICIAL I AM A MAJOR TERRORIST THREAT.

SC-Pic1 andrew white“Not only did I have problems in Israel the other day the Americans have assured me I am a major terror threat to the USA and they have given me a piece of paper to prove it. They let me in this time but next time I have got to get official approval before I come. So I have not even got to the Nashville meeting yet, missed our flight there and don’t even know how and when we can get there. As I always say “Take Risk’s”. Blessings from Chicago.”

(If you don’t know who the ‘Vicar of Baghdad’ is then read his Facebook bio.)

Only a few days before that Andrew had been in Jerusalem and Jordan, where he’d met an archbishop of the Syriac Orthodox Church. On FRRME he reports what happened in en-route to USA …“I set off for America where I am speaking at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville. On my way there I was stopped under terrorism legislation and detained at the O’Hare International Airport in Chicago. After many hours I was given a temporary visa and allowed to travel inside the US. It just goes to show how suspicious American security agencies are of Iraqis and those of us who still visit that beautiful but divided country.”

What else can we expect of a once-superpower nation? As Potus (President Of The United States) isn’t concerned about worldwide persecution of Christians – effectively genocide! – and appoints not even half-baked sycophantic administrators who kowtow to his gross failure to understand and recognise the roots of terrorism (as I’ve blogged many times, eg: here, herehere, here and dismissal of CIA/FBI intel), then such crass stupidity at O’Hare is par for the course.

And that’s not even touching the way Obama personally treats allies!!!

Yesterday – 1st item

Jordan-KingAbdullah-fatiguesBefore checking Canon White’s Facebook I’d already noted Joel Rosenberg again blasting Potus for insulting the USA’s close ally, Jordan’s King Abdullah II: “In January, Mr Obama snubbed the Hashemite monarch on his visit to Washington. The White House initially said the President was too busy to meet with the King. In the end, the President spent a mere five minutes with His Majesty at Andrews Air Force Base before departing on a political trip…he had refused a serious, substantive meeting with the West’s most important and faithful Sunni Arab ally a priority, and America’s allies and enemies were watching.”

However, after their meeting in The White House later yesterday the official joint press release opens:

“We spent the bulk of our discussion around the situation in Syria, Iraq, and our joint efforts to combat ISIL. Jordan has been an outstanding partner in that process. As I’ve said publicly, we have seen progress in pushing back against ISIL in territory both in Iraq and now in some portions of Syria. But a lot of work remains to be done. And so the coordination between our nations and other coalition partners is absolutely critical. And Jordan has made enormous contribution. Jordan is a country that punches above its weight when it comes to the fight against ISIL…”

In closing President Obama remarked,

“Finally, we discussed the situation in Israel and the West Bank, and the increasing tensions that exist between Israelis and Palestinians there. His Majesty has been a critical component of reducing some of the immediate sources of tension around the Temple Mount and visits there. But we continue to agree that it’s important for us to provide both sides a sense of possibility and hope, and not simply despair. That’s hard to do. And so we have explored ideas in terms of how we can make progress. But His Majesty has continued to be a voice of reason and moderation and tolerance for all the parties concerned in this issue. And we very much appreciate his partnership in the process….”

However, The Hill (Washington-based newspaper covering Congressional affairs) reports an article in West Point’s Combating Terrorism Centre by the former head of US Central Commander as saying the truth is exactly the opposite of what Potus and senior advisors are saying about ISIL. (Read Joel Rosenberg for extracts.)

More on Palestine & France

I also read Debka’s special report about US Secretary of State John Kerry in Jordan, ‘Abu Mazen rebuffs Kerry’s appeal to cool Palestinian terror against Israelis’.:

‘US Secretary of State John Kerry came away empty-handed from his latest meeting with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmud Abbas (Abu Mazen) in Amman on Sunday, Feb 21 – which shouldn’t have surprised him as it was par for the course. Debkafile’s Middle Eastern sources report Kerry was finally persuaded that Abbas would not give Israel an inch on any political or security-related matters. The Palestinian leader has never swerved from his conviction that it was the duty of the international community to force Israel to present the Palestinians with a state of their own – without direct negotiations.

‘To this end, Kerry found Abu Mazen clinging to the initiative put forward by French President Francois Hollande, for an international conference that will establish a Palestinian state, while letting the Palestinians off the hook of talks with Israel. France in fact warned Israel that without progress towards a two-state solution of the conflict, Paris would go ahead and recognize a Palestinian state on its own.

‘The Palestinian leader is determined to campaign on behalf of the French initiative in the coming month, undeterred by the US Secretary’s repeated warning that Washington will not go along with it, even if France puts it before the UN Security Council…’ (emphases RB)  Read the full informative report here.

Further to my coverage of Caroline Glick’s excellent articles on political anti-semitism in France, I regret to report support for this by Dr. Guy Millière, professor at the University of Paris, author of 27 books on France and Europe. In France’s Relentless Hostility to the Jewish State published by The Gatestone Institute, he opens:

“France today is one of the main enemies of Israel — maybe its main enemy — in the Western world. France’s disregard of the threats faced by Israel is more than simple willful blindness. It is complicity….”

This synopsis doesn’t cover the outrageous Dreyfus Affair that rocked France around the turn of 19th/20th Centuries. It was one of a myriad intriguing aspects of my school studies on modern European history because it centered around a ‘miscarriage of justice arising from faulty espionage and blatant anti-Semitism’.

Also yesterday

As a known supporter of Israel, PM Cameron spoke in Parliament against settlements built around East Jerusalem. His future will be of interest in these changing times…

BUT as the Palestinian leadership has never been serious about peace negotiations an intelligent person would ask, why should Israel hang on for decades getting nowhere? It’s only commonsense to get on with ordinary life and make sure there’s somewhere to live. Had Abbas the brain to abandon the moribund mindset of victim-hood and settle with Israel, these issues could have been resolved years ago and settlements no longer an issue.

World-changing socio-economic and spiritual trends in 2016

A fortnight ago today (21 January) Rick Joyner, founder of Morning Star Ministries, wrote,

“The premise of my last Prophetic Bulletin on the five trends that would change the natural world in 2016 began unfolding faster and with more impact than I expected. I wrote that it would happen in the first quarter of this year, but I honestly did not expect it to begin on the first day as it did. My prayer now is that what I’ve been shown that will unfold in the Spirit will likewise come faster and with greater impact. What is coming in the Spirit is the antidote to the troubles of the world. It is far more exciting than anything the world has seen…” (emphasis added)

In referring to ‘natural world’ Rick means geopolitical and socio-economic realms. I’ll briefly outline that Bulletin’s content before considering its follow-up, which leads into something of fundamental historical importance that’s been brewing. Rick doesn’t refer to this special seismic shift. Nevertheless, it’s implicit in the conclusion of his subsequent Bulletin.

Published on 14 December his Prophetic Bulletin #96, Five Trends that Will Change the World in 2016, opens as follows:

“A geopolitical shift has taken place at the end of 2015 that could change the world more than we have seen since the collapse of the Iron Curtain. Core beliefs and values are being challenged across the globe. With such a major change of direction happening, where are we headed? The following are the five major events that will likely define our immediate future and impact world affairs for the foreseeable future….”

Rick presents these five in chronological order of occurrence, which isn’t necessarily the sequence of importance or impact, namely: China’s stock market crashes – falling energy prices – Russian military intervention in Middle-East – terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino – the candidacy of Donald Trump.

Having closely watched political events in the States with increasing concern throughout Obama’s terms, and thus being one of 300 founding leaders of The Oak Initiative, Rick’s brief analysis is well-worth noting.

Therefore, in looking at each of those five events of major impact upon the world and their potential consequences Rick starts, “First we will briefly discuss the most basic change factor in world affairs—initiative. In military operations and world affairs, having the initiative is necessary for success…”.  He goes on to examine factors in each case and draw ‘the bottom line’. I note his gentle indictment of Obama regarding terrorism:

“…most people are smart enough to understand the politicians try to come up with politically correct and expedient solutions instead of a real strategy. Even so, the Paris and San Bernardino attacks did a lot to wake up the people. This awakening is helping to throw off the delusions of unrealistic idealism and political correctness. This is crucial for sustainable war that will defeat ISIS and other groups whose primary strategy is terrorism. Although French and British leadership are waking up some, it is an awakening among the people that is creating a sharp turn to the right in Europe. Putin has chastised Europe for its attempt at multiculturalism…”

Read Rick’s brief evaluation in full here and note, as does he, that other factors are also affecting current events and trends; but the far more positive ones are spiritual trends. To continue from my above opening quotation.:

“We all “see in part,” but these are the five most important trends I saw unfolding that we will begin to see emerging this year:

  • A new reformation of the church will begin to take definition.
  • Councils of leaders will begin to form with true apostolic authority. 
  • A kingdom economy will begin to form.
  • A new generation of prophets and teachers will begin to emerge with unprecedented authority and influence 
  • So many Christians will rise up in Europe and North America with zeal and focus that it will be recognized as another Great Awakening, while the moves of God in the rest of the world will gain new traction.”

Continue reading Bulletin #97 here > Five Spiritual Trends That Will Change the World in 2016.

In particular I like this promise:

“…The Lord really has saved His best wine for last. The quality of what He will serve His people will eclipse anything ever experienced before.

“Knowledge has greatly increased in the natural. What is about to be released in the Spirit will mirror this. For those who love knowledge, truth, wisdom, and understanding, there has never been a better time to be alive. This increasing love for the Scriptures will be contagious, helping to feed and strengthen every move of God now unfolding.”

…as well as Rick’s closing remark:

“We are entering the first stages of the great harvest that is the end of this age. This will be the greatest in-gathering there has ever been. It will change the spiritual and moral fabric of nations, profoundly changing the church throughout the earth. The church is then going to help change the earth and prepare the way for the coming King.”  

His reference to spiritual and moral fabric reminds me of the open vision that appeared in front of me of Britain and hearing/seeing the Lord’s plan, “The fabric of society is so rotten – (like old, wet sacking) – it will tear apart”.

I then watched as the centre of England was ripped apart and forced open by a huge rock. That is, the rock that is Christ Jesus will arise throughout the land, becoming the bedrock of our nation once again – Praise the Lord. (See Comments Upon the Collapse of Society)

AND, in connection with Rick’s remark another truly historic and exceptional trend has started, which I reported upon last year. The next post will update you…
