BREAKING: Netanyahu Pressures Knesset To Pass Nation-State Bill THIS MONTH

showimage

In what is undoubtedly the most significant prophetic development so far in 2018, Prime Minister Netanyahu has asked his coalition partners in the Israeli Knesset to get the final version of the Jewish Nation-State Basic Law finalized and passed this month before the next legislative recess (source).  I’ve been closely following the status of this bill since March when it finally left committee (it has been in a limbo state since 2011).

I’ve had several people ask me why this is so significant, so let me briefly explain.  There are numerous biblical prophecies that foretell a time when the Jews scattered around the world would return to their ancient biblical homeland, the nation of Israel would be reborn, their ancient capital would be returned, and then the times of the Gentiles would be fulfilled during a time of trouble leading up to the return of Israel’s Messiah—the Lord Jesus Christ.
The second regathering of the Jews, the establishment of Israel, and the return of the city of Jerusalem into Jewish hands has largely already happened, mostly in the 20th century, during the first half of the Fig Tree Generation.  However, this was a regathering in unbelief as the Jewish people still largely reject their own Messiah.  And the nation that was established in 1948 is technically a secular country with little connection to its biblical roots.
If passed, the Jewish State Bill will, with force of law, return Israel to its biblical identity with nothing left but to accept Yeshua as the Messiah sometime during the coming Tribulation.  This law, in my humble opinion, signals that the times of the Gentiles during the Church Age have reached their end and God will now (or very, very soon) return His focus to the redemption of Israel as prophesied in Acts 15 and Romans 11.

Another way of looking at this is that in 1948 the nation was established; in 1967 the city was returned; and, possibly, in 2018 the people and nation’s identity will be restored.  1948 (nation), 1967 (city), and 2018 (identity).  In effect, this month the nation of Israel will be accepting God’s promise to Abraham that the Holy Land belongs to him and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob.  The country will no longer be a secular one with a name that happens to be the same as the ancient biblical Kingdom, but an actual restoration of the Jews’ ancient biblical homeland.

Side note: It’s interesting that the nation was established in May, Jerusalem returned in June, and it looks likely that the nation’s identity could be restored in July.  From 1948 to 1967 to 2018 is a sequential ordering of months ranging from the month of Pentecost to the month before the Fall Festivals begin.  There is a lot of agreement among students of Bible prophecy that Christ will return to earth in the Fall, likely on one of the September/October biblical holidays.  That just leaves August, typically the month of Elul, to find some major significance soon (The unveiling of the Trump-Kushner peace plan?  Or perhaps something of far greater importance during the Tribulation?).  It’s interesting that Israel’s restoration over the past 70 years has coincided with the sequential biblical months leading up to Tishri, and mirrors how the restoration of the Gentiles also began in May, on Pentecost, in 32 or 33 AD, and could also be completed in Tishri if the rapture occurs on the Feast of Trumpets or Shimini Atzeret.

It’s also interesting that the momentous events last July on the Temple Mount, when Israel wrested control from the Jordanian Waqf for the first time in 50 years, were a potential one year prelude to a much more momentous event this month.

A note about Israeli law: Israel doesn’t have a formal constitution like the United States, but has something akin to it called Basic Law.  Israeli Basic Laws are the highest laws of the land and supersede regular legislation.  The Jewish State Bill, if passed, will be one of these and will override the secular courts in areas addressed by the law’s dictates.  Passing any type of legislation in Israel is essentially a four part process: first, a bill is drafted and sent to committee for review.  Sometimes bills get stuck in committee for years and never see the light of day.  Second, if they can manage to get approval they go to the full Knesset for a first reading.  Third, if they pass the first reading they move on to a second reading, and fourth, if they pass the second reading they move on to a third reading/final vote.  Once a bill passes a third reading in the Knesset it becomes the law of the land.

The Jewish State Bill has left committee (after being stuck for seven years) and passed its first full reading in the Knesset.  Netanyahu wants his coalition to make a few small tweaks to the bill and then get its second and third readings completed this month.

Here is a recent draft of the bill:

Israeli Minister: Turkey’s President Erdogan an anti-Semite

f161220ys30-640x400

The war of words continues between the leaders of Israel and Turkey; Minister Erdan regrets reconciliation with Turkey, saying Erdogan is an anti-Semite.

By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News

Just a day after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan exchanged vicious barbs, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan expressed regret that Israel had agreed to reconciliation with Turkey in 2016. Asked about the détente reached between the two countries, ending six years of animosity after the 2010 Mavi Marmara incident, Erdan said, “The agreement should not have been approved, and trying to improve ties with Turkey was a mistake.”

Erdan then went on to brand Erdogan “an anti-Semite who continues to support Hamas.”

As a condition to repair ties, Israel had agreed to pay monetary compensation to the families of Turkish citizens killed during the 2010 flotilla incident.

Erdan rationalized his decision to vote in favor of the rapprochement agreement with Turkey at the time, saying that Netanyahu had convinced him that Turkish pressure on Hamas might lead to the return of the bodies of Israeli soldiers still held by the terrorist group.

Erdan says that now is the time for Israel to “stand up to the hostility and anti-Semitism of Erdogan.”

“It’s odd for a country such as Turkey, which is massacring the Kurds and occupying northern Cyprus, to be accepted as a legitimate nation by the West,” the minister noted. He then touched on a particularly sore nerve with the Turks, telling Army Radio, “It’s possible Israel should have acted against Turkey in the international arena and recognized the Armenian genocide committed by the Ottoman Empire.”

On Friday, Erdogan started the nasty exchange by attacking the IDF’s defense of its border with Gaza, where 30,000 Palestinians gathered in an attempt to infiltrate the Jewish state, saying, “I strongly condemn the Israeli government over its inhumane attack.”

“I do not need to tell the world how cruel the Israeli army is. We can see what this terror state is doing by looking at the situation in Gaza and Jerusalem,” he stated., adding that Israel “has carried out a massacre in Gaza and Netanyahu is a terrorist.”

On Sunday, Netanyahu responded to Erdogan, saying, “I am not used to receiving lectures about morality from a leader who bombs Kurdish villages in his native Turkey, who jails journalists, who helps Iran go around international sanctions, and who helps terrorists, including in Gaza, who kill innocent people. That is not the man who is going to lecture us.” (Click to Source)

Crown Prince’s overture to Syria’s Bashar while in the US

Saudi leader dropped a bombshell on the weekend, saying that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad is not going to be ousted from power; it was a stunning reversal of their ‘regime change’ plan for Damascus

 APRIL 1, 2018 6:02 PM (UTC+8)

mbs-and-trump-960x576

The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman dropped a bombshell in the course of a weekend interview with Time magazine that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad is not going to be ousted from power. He said, “Bashar is staying. But I believe Bashar’s interest is not to let the Iranians do whatever they want to do.”

This remark by the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia is a stunning reversal of Riyadh’s policies in Syria hinged on “regime change” in Damascus. One can call it an admission of defeat. But then, there is always the tantalizing possibility of sub-plots in politics and this could be one such situation of sub-plots gaining ascendance.

MBS, 32, remains an enigma wrapped in mystery. Some say he’s a great reformer while others call him an impetuous practitioner of coercive politics. Indeed, the two personality traits needn’t be contradictory necessarily, as history shows.

What cannot be overlooked is that MBS belongs to a new generation, which is acutely conscious of the Kingdom acquiring the skills of “soft power”. Soft power traditionally meant money power in the Saudi political lexicon. But things are changing.

Bid to win friends and influence

No Saudi ruler ever before launched such a media blitzkrieg as a curtain raiser to visits to the UK and the US. The Saudi public diplomacy used to be brash, but today there is an earnest attempt to win friends and influence people. And these are early days for MBS’s rule.

Put differently, Saudi diplomacy is transitioning. Thus, while on a visit to the US, MBS announces on the one hand that Saudi Arabia and Russia (read MBS and Vladimir Putin) – have agreed on a long-term energy alliance, while on the other hand, effectively signaling that he is ready to do business with Bashar.

Evidently, MBS is thinking through the Saudi predicament. Stable, high oil prices are achievable only with Russia’s cooperation and such a convergence simply doesn’t exist with the US – although the petrodollar is the life-blood of the American economy and US-led international financial system.

MBS has just announced that the curtain is coming down on the 70-year-old “oil-for-security” pact between Saudi Arabia and the US agreed upon by Franklin Roosevelt and King Abdulaziz, founder of the Saudi Kingdom, in 1946 on the banks of the Nile.

Curiously, in a journey that took a quarter of a century, China chose just this past week to open its own oil futures on the Shanghai International Energy Exchange in contracts that will be denominated in yuan rather than US dollars, and where a futures contract is based on a basket of medium and heavy crudes that closely resembles grades that China imports in significant volumes from Saudi Arabia and Russia. The cacophony over the Skripal spy case should not detract the profound strategic implications of the Saudi-Russian oil alliance that MBS announced.

Saudis at odds with Trump on Syria

Again, MBS chose to speak of the dramatic shift in the Saudi policy toward Syria while he is still on American soil. Importantly, he spoke soon after meeting President Donald Trump in the White House on March 20 and discussing Syria with Defence Secretary James Mattis.

Even more importantly, MBS’s interview with Time followed just hours after Trump told a cheering crowd in Richfield, Ohio on Thursday, “We’re coming out of Syria very soon. Let the other people take care of it now, very soon. Very soon, we’re coming out.”

MBS, nonetheless, disagrees: “We believe American troops should stay for at least the mid-term, if not the long-term.” He told Time that the American troop presence inside Syria was the last effort stopping Iran from continuing to expand influence with regional allies, besides allowing Washington to have a say in Syria’s future.

But how far his sage advice will influence Trump is in serious doubt. In fact, after Trump spoke, news trickled in that two US military personnel were killed and five others wounded in the northeastern Syrian town of Manjib in a bomb attack on Thursday. On Friday, the White House provided an official transcript of Trump’s getting out “very-soon” remarks in Ohio.

On Saturday, reports appeared that Trump has separately ordered this week a hold on more than $200 million in recovery funds for Syria earmarked for basic infrastructure projects, such as restoring power and water and rebuilding roads, demanding more information on how the money would be used and also seeking that other countries step up to the plate and pay more.

CBS News reported that the decision was relayed to the State Department on Friday in a call that White House chief of staff John Kelly made to Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan. To be sure, MBS is astute enough to know that recent changes in the State Department and White House National Security Council significantly enables Trump to force his will on the Administration’s Syria policies.

MBS is reportedly set to visit Baghdad and Najaf very soon. A Saudi consulate may open in Najaf, the holy center of (Iraqi) Shi’ism. Following Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s two visits to Saudi Arabia last year, the rapprochement between the two countries rapidly gained traction, especially in the economic field.

Similarly, MBS prefers to put Saudi money where the mouth is – in Damascus – rather than fund the Pentagon commanders’ fanciful infrastructure projects in power and water or rebuilding roads on a remote patch of land in the middle of nowhere along the western banks of the Euphrates.

MBS sees that the “regime change” agenda in Syria has exhausted itself. Make no mistake, he hinted at doing business with Bashar. After all, Bashar is no stranger to the Saudi royals. (Click to Source)

Israel announces plan to stop using coal, gasoline, and diesel by 2030

Wednesday, March 21, 2018 by: David Williams

Israel announces plan to stop using coal, gasoline, and diesel by 2030

This plan was revealed by Israel’s Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz at a recently concluded energy conference held in Tel Aviv. In his view, it should be possible to hit all of their renewable energy goals within the next 12 years or sooner, as Israel moves to switch from coal-based sources to more environmentally friendly alternatives in the production of valuable electricity.

According to Steinitz, Israel is now ready to drop its current energy sources and never look back. “We intend to reach a situation in which Israel’s industry will be based on natural gas, and most importantly, transportation in Israel will be based on natural gas or electricity,” he explained. “From 2030 onwards, the State of Israel will create alternatives and will no longer allow the import of cars that run on gasoline and diesel fuel.”

This new initiative signifies a dramatic shift away from the notion that renewable energy sources can be tapped while still keeping current fuel sources active and in operation. Just a few years ago, in 2014, half of all the electricity produced in Israel came from coal sources while the other half came from natural gas. Now, their new plan aims to hit 83 percent natural gas and 17 percent renewable energy, noting that they should produce “zero pollutant” along the way, said Steinitz.

The Energy Minister also mentioned this change directly in saying, “We have abolished the strategy of diversification of fuels.” He said that the decision to focus fully on renewable energy sources came from the realization that it’s possible for them to reach energy security even without the diversification that still involves the use of coal-based sources.

Israel is looking at more than just cost-savings as part of its move to switch to renewables. One non-monetary benefit would be the reduction of deaths due to air pollution, which the official number pegs at around 2,500 people each year. And the development of the country’s natural gas plans has led to the creation of Leviathan, the largest natural gas field in Israel. It hasn’t begun operations yet, but it has already given a number of benefits.

Steinitz credits the Leviathan for playing a key role, in improving Israel’s relations with neighboring countries Egypt and Jordan. Steinitz admitted that continued development of the field allows them to sign the “most significant export deals” they’ve ever had after signing the peace accords with them. “This strengthens the peace axis,” he said. “It is a geopolitical success that has been made possible because of natural gas.”

Not everyone is onboard with the country’s plan to move completely in favor of natural gasand electricity, however. A group of protesters has expressed its disapproval for the planned Leviathan construction, saying that instead of building that rig, companies should instead set up floating production storage and offloading facilities above it, instead of occupying all the space close to the shore of Dor Beach, where the rig will be built. But Steinitz remains steadfast, pointing out that those protesting are merely people who adhere to the “not in my backyard” philosophy and don’t have an eye on the big picture.

Certainly, Israel has a long way to go before it meets all of its goals. But the mere fact that they have already started working on them and have remained determined all throughout despite opposition goes to show that they have a big chance of succeeding. (Click to Source)

On The Brink Of A Middle East Peace Plan

linesand

As the days wane in the wake of the Revelation 12 Sign and the confluence of signs in 2017, and Israel’s 70th anniversary quickly approaches, we might expect to hear a lot of noise pertaining to a final status agreement between Israel and “Palestine,” and that is exactly what we’re hearing.

News has slipped that the Trump Administration is preparing to unveil its Middle East peace plan at an upcoming conference in Cairo.  Key details of the Trump and Kushner-sponsored agreement reportedly include:

  • The permanent division of the Holy Land between Israel and a so-called “Palestinian State”
  • The division of Jerusalem between western (Israeli) and eastern (Palestinian) halves, with the walled Old City and the Temple Mount falling under the control of an international monitor
  • Israel’s largest settlement block outside internationally-recognized borders, “Area C,” would remain under Israeli control
  • The Palestinian government would abandon its call for a Palestinian “right of return” to Israeli land
  • The Palestinian government would assume control of Areas A and B
  • The U.S. government would fund the development of the Palestinian State to the tune of $40 billion
These details have now been widely reported in the media, but still remain rumors, although probably pretty close to the truth of what will soon be revealed.  For the time being, the P.A. is denouncing any U.S. role in the peace process because of Trump’s embassy move, but the truth of the matter is that Abbas knows he won’t get a much better deal than this one and the carrot of $40 billion, in addition to secret pressure from the Egyptians and Saudis, might sway him in 2018.
The timing certainly seems to fit in light of all of the prophetic signs that have recently converged.
Pertaining to the upcoming embassy move on Israel’s 70th anniversary, Prime Minister Netanyahu apparently wants President Trump to be present at the opening, which would make the occassion quite a spectacle.  He will raise the prospect with the President while they meet today in D.C.  In addition, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales has just announced that his country will be moving its embassy to Jerusalem just two days after the U.S. move on May 14th:
In light of all that’s happening now, I would encourage you to study the most recent number-crunching over at WatchForTheDay and also take a look at the most recent article from A Little Strength, which is a truly superb breakdown of prophecy basics and how to steer right in the realm of Bible prophecy.

BREAKING: Israel Launches Biggest Airstrikes In Syria Since 1982

f-16

There is major news out of the Middle East today that there has apparently been a major escalation in Syria and Northern Israel.  The situation is still very fluid, but here is what we know:

1. A sophisticated Iranian UAV entered Northern Israel and was shot down by an Israeli Apache helicopter.  Footage of the helicopter attack has already reached YouTube:

2. In response to the incursion, an Israeli F-16 destroyed the drone’s control station.

3. On the return flight, the F-16 was shot down by Syrian air defenses and crashed in Northern Israel, east of Haifa.  Both pilots ejected, but were injured, one of them critically.  This marks the first time an Israeli F-16 has been shot down, and the first time any manned Israeli aircraft was shot down in the Syrian conflict.

4. Israel responded to the downing of their warplane with the largest airstrikes in Syria since 1982—over 35 years ago.  Numerous air defenses and military facilities have been targeted, including eight facilities in or in the vicinity of Damascus.

5. Hezbollah is calling the downing of the F-16 a strategic game-changer  and Russia, in no uncertain terms, is telling Israel to back off and restrain itself.

In my most recent post I mentioned the United Nations’ December 2017 damage assessment of the Damascus metropolitan area and I want to share that again, because the assessment is startling—showing a significant increase in Damascus’ destruction in just a year and a half:

The area shown above is directly adjacent to the old city and downtown areas of Damascus, and demonstrates, in my humble opinion that the tragic fulfillment of Isaiah 17:1 is nigh at hand.  At some point in the near future, Damascus proper will be destroyed in just one night:

A prophecy against Damascus: ‘See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins… At evening, behold, terror! Before the morning, they are no more. This is the portion of those who plunder us, and the lot of those who rob us.’

The World Erupts

On the heels of President Trump’s decision to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to move the U.S. embassy to the city, the Muslim world has erupted in protest and riots have broken out in various countries.  Could this decision be what sets up the fulfillment of Zechariah 12:3?

On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.

And perhaps even Daniel 8:23:

In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a fierce-looking king, a master of intrigue, will arise.

The Bible tells us that at the end of the age the spirit of lawlessness will engulf the world leading to the Gentile nations undergoing tumultuous rebellions and out-of-control wickedness.  This leads to wars to steal Jerusalem from the Jews.  In the midst of the uproar, a “master of intrigue,” the antichrist, arises and begins to accumulate power.

Riots and protests have simultaneously broken out in many countries…

The West Bank:

Gaza:

Indonesia:

Malaysia:

Turkey:

Even the United States:

The Trump Administration continues to gear up for the unveiling of what has been coined “the ultimate deal.”  U.S. officials have informed Mahmoud Abbas that after the initial outcry over the embassy move dies down, the peace agreement framework will be revealed – some time before the middle of 2018.  In other words, shortly before, or right around, the 70th anniversary of Israel’s rebirth.

In other news, historic wildfires continue to ravage California.  Over 200,000 are undergoing evacuation and a major freeway in Los Angeles was shutdown.  The “Thomas fire” alone has already scorched 180 square miles and is only 5 percent contained.

Trump Administration Close To Unveiling Major Deal In The Middle East

362314052

The Trump Administration is getting closer to unveiling what the President calls “the ultimate deal” – a final solution to the Israeli-Palestinian “problem”:

Trump, who considers himself a dealmaker, decided to adopt the challenge when he took office in January, intrigued at the idea of succeeding where other presidents failed, and he assigned the effort to Jared Kushner, his son-in-law and senior adviser. Neither had any background with the issue, and the effort was greeted with scorn, but the fact that the president entrusted it to a close relative was taken as a sign of seriousness in the region.

Trump’s team sees the convergence of factors that make the moment ripe, including an increased willingness by Arab states to finally solve the issue to refocus attention on Iran, which they consider the bigger threat.

With that in mind, Egypt is brokering a reconciliation between President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, who presides in the West Bank, and Hamas, which controls Gaza, a deal that would cement the Palestinian Authority as the representative of the Palestinian people. Saudi Arabia has summoned Abbas to Riyadh to reinforce the importance of a deal.

“The stars begin to align in a way that creates a moment,” said Nimrod Novik, a fellow at the Israel Policy Forum who served as foreign policy adviser to former Prime Minister Shimon Peres, who negotiated the Oslo Accords in the 1990s.

The New York Times is confirming this news:

WASHINGTON — President Trump and his advisers have begun developing their own concrete blueprint to end the decades-old conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, a plan intended to go beyond previous frameworks offered by the American government in pursuit of what the president calls “the ultimate deal.”

After 10 months of educating themselves on the complexities of the world’s most intractable dispute, White House officials said, Mr. Trump’s team of relative newcomers to Middle East peacemaking has moved into a new phase of its venture in hopes of transforming what it has learned into tangible steps to end a stalemate that has frustrated even presidents with more experience in the region.

With a dramatic geopolitical realignment occurring in the Middle East as Sunni enclaves Egypt and Saudi Arabia join with Israel as a bulwark against Iran, it seems that the prospects for a mutually agreed upon treaty have never been higher.

Crown Prince Salman of Saudi Arabia is about to take the reins in his country and Abdel el-Sissi of Egypt has successfully negotiated reconciliation in Palestine, so the Sunni-axis of Arab states seem to be jumping at the gun to finally make “peace” with Israel and force an agreement on both Israel and the Palestinians.

The time has never been more ripe and I increasingly expect a final agreement by the end of this year or in 2018, which will be the actual 70th anniversary of Israel’s rebirth.

Nimrod Novik’s words in regards to the prospects of an agreement seem particularly interesting in light of 2017’s Revelation 12 Sign: “The stars begin to align in a way that creates a moment.”

 

In other news, Australia has just become one of the last major Western-aligned nations to approve gay marriage.  After the 61% to 38% vote, celebrations kicked off with rainbow-clad celebrators dancing naked in Hyde Park, Sydney.  The West has collectively endorsed the right to freedom of behavior at the expense of freedoms of speech, religion, and association.  The naked, defiant throngs of gleeful people provide demonstrable evidence that this movement is not about love at all, but purely about the basest and most degrading desires of sinful humanity.

Folks, don’t get comfortable.  The West is lost and our only hope is Christ.  We are now living in what is the textbook definition of the biblical last days.

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

BREAKING: Abbas Says Hamas Ministers Must Recognize Israel

abbas

Following on the heels of a final Fatah-Hamas unification agreement that will see the Fatah-controlled Palestinian government gain control of Gaza by December 1st, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has stated that Hamas ministers entering the unity government must recognize Israel’s right to exist.  This is a significant development in that Hamas has never recognized Israel.  This will put significant pressure on Israel to agree to a peace deal.

Keep in mind that this is total doublespeak on the part of Abbas since he says one thing to his western, English-speaking audiences, and a completely different thing to local Arab media.

In my estimation we are witnessing the Psalm 83 or a Psalm 83-esque conspiracy developing since Egypt, Saudia Arabia, and Jordan have all made “nice” with Israel in recent months.  The Israeli government is saying relations with the Sunni Arab world have never been better and that’s true from a purely superficial perspective, but what this really means is that Israel will be swindled into a peace deal, which will see the Jews’ God-given land divided right through the middle.

In other news, tomorrow is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and also Yom Kippur if the barley harvest was delayed.  This Thursday is the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration.  Two weeks from today is the long-expected “post-birth” conjunction of Jupiter with Venus on November 13th.  That day also happens to be Shemini Atzeret, again – if the barley was not abib when expected this past Spring.  November 13th is 50 days after the Revelation 12 Sign, exactly 12 weeks after the Great American Eclipse444 days since the last Jupiter-Venus conjunction, and 777 days since the Tabernacles Super Blood Moon of September 28, 2015.

The sheep have landed. After three years of high-level negotiations between the Israeli and Canadian governments, 119 heritage sheep, which trace their lineage back 5,000 years to the Middle East, began arriving in Israel on November 30. It is the first time that the breed, called Jacob’s sheep, has been represented in Israel since biblical times. Three of the 11 flights carrying the sheep have already arrived in Israel, according to Gil and Jenna Lewinsky, the shepherds who began

raising these ovines on a whim in western Canada. “The first sheep arrived on the Jewish calendar the day that Noah came out of the ark, the 28th of Heshvan,” said Jenna Lewinsky. “It was beautiful to see them walk on the soil of Israel,” she said. “As a Jewish person I am so connected to the land, but to see the whole project connecting — it’s going to stay with me for the rest of my life.” Jenna Lewinsky immigrated to Israel just three weeks before the first flight of sheep came on their own baa-liyah.
