Election Aftermath, Dominionism, And The Coming Covenant With Death

malibu_-california-woolsey_fire-getty-h_2018

November 6, 2018: the first midterm election since the inauguration of President Trump occurred and the results were somewhat of a mixed bag.  There was indeed a “blue wave”, but there was a counter-wave of enthused Republican voters to meet it—many of whom were frustrated by the smear job against Brett Kavanaugh.  When all was said and done Democrats made major gains in the House and netted seven governor seats.  And Republicans expanded their Senate majority from 51 to 53 (supposing the outcome of a Florida recount remains the same for Rick Scott).

I didn’t know which way the elections would go, but I kept predictions from pseudo-Dominionist “prophets” Kim Clement and Mark Taylor close in mind.  According to these prophets Trump was set to score big in the midterms and then a massive wave of indictments against corrupt politicians would be unleashed.  Globalists would be swept from power and a Christian revival would commence throughout the United States and perhaps even the western world.

It’s hard not to want that.  I burn for righteousness to be restored.  I long for the country and post-Christian world to repent of its secular slide and for people to flock back to churches as they very briefly did in the aftermath of 9/11.

But that’s not what’s happening, nor is it what the Bible predicted would happen.

Democrats retook the House, ensuring complete gridlock for the next two years, and preparing the way for a slew of subpoenas and investigations that will cripple the government.  The country is more divided than ever.

These prophets were wrong.

My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and who give lying divinations.  They shall not be in the council of my people, nor be enrolled in the register of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter the land of Israel.  And you shall know that I am the Lord GOD.  Precisely because they have misled my people, saying, ‘Peace,’ when there is no peace, and because, when the people build a wall, these prophets smear it with whitewash.

What we see happening in the world is not a mass revival, but a further dividing.  Those who love truth love it more than ever before.  Those who hate truth hate it more than ever before.

Here is what the Bible says about what life will be like in the last days before Christ’s return:

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.  For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.  For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.  Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and disqualified regarding the faith.  But they will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, as was that of those two men.

 

Knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires.  They will say, ‘Where is the promise of his coming?  For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.’  For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished.  But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

 

Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man.  They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.  Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot—they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building, but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all—so will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

Tens of thousands of people are still coming to faith in Jesus Christ right now and this will continue right up until the point the door to the Ark is closed and the Church, the restrainer, is removed from the earth.

Only after that happens will revival come.  Millions, tens of millions, perhaps even hundreds of millions will come to a saving knowledge of the truth and will in turn be martyred for their faith.  These are the 5th Seal Martyrs, popularly known as “Tribulation Saints” (see here and here).

Many of these will be those who never proclaimed the Name of Christ.  But many will be those who proclaimed the Name of Christ, but never had a saving knowledge of the Truth—they neither accepted nor believed in the Gospel.  They trusted in themselves or their “Torah keeping” or their denominational affiliation or their good citizenship.  Others lived lawlessly because they believed Christ was just one of many ways to Heaven, and, in the end, “everyone will make it.”

It will take nothing less than the Great Tribulation for these to realize who Christ is and what He accomplished on the Cross, and even then, we are told that they are not cleansed by their works, but by the Lamb’s blood:

Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, ‘Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?’  I said to him, ‘Sir, you know.’  And he said to me, ‘These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation.  They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.’

Yet, in addition to possessing a genuine, saving faith, there is one thing they all must do: they must, under no circumstances, receive the mark of the beast or worship the beast and its image (Rev. 14:9–11).

For those of you who by grace still have breath in your lungs in this present eon, remember the narrow pathGrace AloneFaith AloneChrist Alone.

And for those still struggling with how to reconcile the Law, it’s so simple and it pains me without end that it took me so long for the veil to be lifted from my own eyes:

1. Christ did not come to abolish the Law (Mt. 5:17).  He raised the bar of the Law.

2. Christ then perfectly fulfilled the Law on your behalf because it is absolutely impossible for you, or anyone, to keep the Law.

3. The Law brought condemnation to us, showing our need for God.  We had all, like sheep, gone astray, each to our own way.  And God used the Law to direct us back (Gal. 3:24–25Rom. 10:4).

4. Christ died as the atoning sacrifice for all lawbreakers who would look to Him alone for forgiveness of sins and salvation (Jn. 3:14–186:28–291 Pt. 2:24).

5. In the present dispensation we uphold the Law (Rom. 3:31).  In other words, we acknowledge that the Law’s righteous requirements still stand, and we acknowledge that we’ve failed to meet those righteous requirements.  But, by faith, we trust that Christ died, on our behalf, for our sins, and rose again, so that our failure to keep the Law would be “righted” by His shed blood.

6. Through that faith, the righteousness of Christ is imputed to us (2 Cor. 5:21) as an undeserved gift (Rom. 5:166:23Eph. 2:8) and we are baptized in the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 12:13)—an irrevocable seal that guarantees our soon physical redemption via the rapture.

7. Though the Law still stands we are free from it because of the atoning sacrifice of God’s Son.  We are no longer under the Law (Rom. 6:14).  Those who place themselves back under the Law in lieu of Christ’s atoning sacrifice have fallen from grace (Gal. 5:4) and are in serious danger of judgment since Christ’s sacrifice is the only available sacrifice for sins (Heb. 10:26–29).

God is shaking the earth, calling people to repent while there is still time.  Just two days after the election, wildfires broke out near Paradise, California.  Think Paradise Lost.  Now get this: the author of Paradise Lost, John Milton, happened to die on the exact same day that this fire started (November 8th) some 344 years ago.  The fire is now the deadliest and most destructive in California history.  29 people have been killed.  6,500 homes have been destroyed.

On the same day, another fire struck near Malibu, which is A-list celebrity central.  The ‘gods’ that many Americans worship were forced to flee and many of their homes were completely destroyed.  Here are just a few of those affected:

Kim Kardashian
Caitlyn Jenner (who popularized the transgender movement)
Mark Hamill
Julia Roberts
Mel Gibson
Cher
Patrick Dempsey
Gerard Butler
Orlando Bloom
Lady Gaga
Guillermo Del Toro
Miley Cyrus
Neil Young
Alyssa Milano (a central figure in the #MeToo movement)
Rainn Wilson
Khloe Kardashian
…And many others.

Matt Drudge had prominently emblazoned his own Balaamic Prophecy at the top of Drudge as the fires spread—”Apocalypse”, “stars flee” (yes, both are about to happen):

Keep in mind that the largest wildfire in state history also occurred this year—the Mendocino Complex Fire, which burned nearly half a million acres.

Today, on the other side of the world, over 300 rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza as the situation continues to spiral.  Only about one-third were shot down, with approximately 200 hitting the southern part of the country.  Israel has launched a wave of airstrikes in retaliation.

Things are quickly heating up as we draw ever closer to the revealing of the Trump-Kushner peace plan, which may be the basis/foundation of the future, post-rapture seven-year covenant mentioned in Daniel 9:27.  Globalist/European federalist Emmanuel Macron is pushing Trump hard to reveal the plan as soon as possible.

It seems the world is rushing to do the very thing that will trigger the Day of the LORD: divide the land of Israel.

The Revelation 12 Sign is passed.
 
Israel’s 70th anniversary is passed.
 
The Jewish State Bill is law.
 
The sign of the dragon is passed.
 
The door to the Ark is closing.

With the door still barely cracked open, I implore you to squeeze in through the narrow way.  “Now is the favorable time, today is the day of salvation.” (2 Cor. 6:2).

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:

Same corrupt California government that pushed vaccine mandates now forming a “fake news” authority to BLOCK news sources they don’t like… California to become Communist China

06/28/2018 / By Ethan Huff

welcome-to-california-road-sign

Liberals in the Golden State have come up with yet another way to expand authoritarian control over the people who live there. It’s known as Senate Bill 1424, and it would basically eliminate all independent press in California, dubbing any information that establishment politicians disagree with as “fake news.”

If it ends up passing and being signed into law, SB 1424 will mandate that the California Attorney General create an advisory committee by April 1, 2019, to police the information that’s spread via social media and other platforms to determine whether or not it’s “true.” The state’s ministry of propaganda will then come up with a plan of attack to eliminate anything that’s deemed “false.”

Since “fake news” is a subjective term that varies in its substance depending on who you ask, there’s no real way to police it. But California politicians sure are going to try, and what it will mean (based on the vast majority of their political leanings) is the silencing of all dissenting viewpoints that don’t fit whatever official narrative the government is trying to push.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), a freedom advocacy group, is vehemently opposed to the bill, having called it both “flawed” and “misguided.” Because there are already laws on the books that hold news outlets accountable whenever they print defamatory material, there’s simply no need to establish a ministry of “truth” that’s tasked with authoritatively declaring what information does and does not qualify as such.

“The group argues the measure would make the government and advisory group responsible for deciding what is true or false,” explains EFF about its position. “It also points out the First Amendment prevents content-based restrictions, even if the statements of ‘admittedly false.’”

Another California bill, AB 155, is attempting to force public school teachers to indoctrinate students about “fake news”

This is hardly the first egregiously unconstitutional legislative bill to come down the pipeline in California. Many Natural News readers will recall the infamous Senate Bill 277, the legislative baby of corrupt Big Pharma shill Richard Pan, that eliminated all philosophical and religious exemptions for vaccines in the state of California.

There’s also AB 155, a newly proposed bill that would require public school teachers to indoctrinate their students about the concept of “fake news” – presumably framing it in terms of President Trump’s alleged “Russian meddling” in the 2016 presidential election that led to the spread of what liberals claim was “fake news” all over social media. And who could forget SB 48, yet another California masterpiece that requires public school children to be taught that transgenderism is completely normal and natural.

It’s all part of the lunatic left’s insidious plan to transform far-left states like California into certifiably Communist police states that control pretty much everything that people learn, eat, say, and inject or put inside their bodies. Freedom of choice, in other words, is on the verge of completely disappearing from the Left Coast in this regard, and all in the name of political correctness and “tolerance.”

Soon Californians won’t even be able to speak freely without facing some sort of penalty for the “crime” of saying the wrong thing. This is actually already in the works with regards to LGBT issues and sexual orientation with the introduction of AB 2943. As we recently reported, the threatening legislation would make it a crime for licensed psychologists and counselors to offer reparative or “conversion” therapy to willing individuals struggling with gender identity issues.

Political correctness will be the death of this nation, and certainly of freedom of speech. To keep up with the latest news, visit ThoughtPolice.news.  (Click to Source)

Trump Will Meet With Kim Jong-Un, Anthony Kennedy May Retire

8-trump-kim-w1200-h630

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly requested a direct, face-to-face meeting with President Trump to talk about complete denuclearization.  In a shocking announcement, the President has agreed to a meeting “by May”—presumably to occur shortly before Israel’s 70th anniversary on May 14th.

In the meantime, North Korea has agreed to suspend all missile and nuclear tests while conceding that U.S.-South Korean military exercises will continue.  The sudden, concessionary tone from Kim Jong-un has startled geopolitical analysts, showing that Reagan-esque “peace through strength” is the only effective method of international diplomacy, but time will tell.  One thing is for sure—the last 30 years of Democrat and Neocon policies have done absolutely nothing to dissuade the North Korean leadership.  All the while hundreds of thousands—including untold numbers of Christians—continue to languish in labor camps.

– – –

In other news, rumor is continuing to boil that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy may retire this summer, which would be a vacancy that could fundamentally transform SCOTUS from socially liberal to socially conservative (Kennedy was the deciding vote on gay marriage and numerous other issues).  For the nation’s sake I pray he does.  I also pray that he stands up for religious liberty in the upcoming, monumentally important case involving a Christian baker in Colorado who refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding.  If he sides with the court’s four liberals, Christian liberty will be stifled like never before.

Please pray with me.

 

– – –

I also want to bring attention to another rapidly developing story that is being largely ignored—the situation for the minority white population in South Africa has suddenly deteriorated and some reports are suggesting they may be in imminent danger.  Please, please pray for this situation immediately.  We have readers in South Africa.  They and their families need your prayers.

Last week the Parliament of South Africa voted to allow the bureaucratic seizure of land owned by white farmers without compensation.  To further inflame tensions, the leader of the racist EFF party has called for violence against whites in the country, setting off alarm bells about a Rwanda-repeat.

I want to hear from our South African friends if you have any news about this.

– – –

Lastly, speculation is building about the significance of March 20th, the presumed start of the next biblical year.  I would be remiss not to mention this.  There is an incredible plethora of numbers, patterns, and day counts pointing to this day, and it’s a day that signals not only the end of the year in which the Revelation 12Sign occurred, but also the beginning of the year in which Israel will celebrate its 70th anniversary.  That is significant in and of itself.

That being said, I think we can make a mistake by suggesting numbers, patterns, and day counts can only find their significance in the rapture.  To the contrary, every day is significant and controlled by God, and some days more significant than others, but sometimes it takes time to realize what that significance is.  For example, the Super Blood Moon in September 2015 didn’t signal the rapture, but the entrance of large numbers of Russian and Iranian troops into the biblical boundaries of Northern Israel.  Likewise, the blood moon in April 2014 did not pinpoint the rapture, but marked a significant number of geopolitical developments and armed conflicts, including the rise of the Islamic State’s caliphate and the civil war in Ukraine.

While I believe the rapture is imminent (probably this year), I’m not sure exactly how this will all play out. (Click to Source)

MAJOR DEVELOPMENT: Knesset Panel Passes Jewish State Bill

knesset

A bill officially defining the nation of Israel as a Jewish state—something that has eluded Knesset lawmakers since the country’s inception—has just passed a key Knesset committee and now goes on to the full Knesset chamber this week for the first of three votes.  The significance of its potential passage cannot be understated.

This Jewish-state bill would actually become Israeli Basic Law, akin to an amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and far more powerful than typical laws that can be easily overridden by the courts.  Not only would it officially declare the State of Israel to be the one and only homeland of the Jewish people, but it would also make Hebrew the official language of the country, and would include key prophetic language from Deuteronomy 30:1–5 about how Israel must now ingather the remaining exiles spread abroad.

The law is a major prophetic turning point, and in my humble opinion, a prophetic signal that the fig tree is now ready for inspection and the times of the Gentiles are near to their end (see also Jeff’s latest article).  If it passes, I will have no hesitation in concluding that 2018 is as prophetically-significant as 1948 and 1967.  The Jewish people will finally have recognized and declared who they are, where they belong, and what a major part of their purpose is, but they will still be missing one key thing: the recognition of their Messiah Yeshua.  It will take nothing less than a 7-year tribulation for them to finally acknowledge Him and to accept His atoning sacrifice for their sins.

1948: The State of Israel is reborn

1967: Israel takes Eastern Jerusalem and the Temple Mount

2018: Israel becomes the Jewish State, declares Hebrew the official language, and defines its prophetic purpose?

I should also mention that the bill, as written, does not mention democracy and that is intentional as its authors want to restrain the courts and require them to give deference to Jewish law.  It also allows Jewish-only communities to be established in the country.

Prophecy & Political News Roundup

A lot has happened in the past few days:

1. A devastating 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck right in the heart of Papua New Guinea on Sunday causing massive devastation and killing over 30 people.  Sadly, the death toll is expected to rise as many more are injured and still others missing.  The quake triggered staggeringly massive landslides:
 
2. President Trump has won two important court battles.  In Jennings v. Rodriguez on Tuesday, the Supreme Court reversed a 9th Circuit ruling in a 5-3 decision that allows non-citizen immigrants to be detained indefinitely.  And in California, Hispanic U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel ruled that environmental rules can be waived allowing Trump’s border wall plans to proceed.
3. On Wednesday, the body of Billy Graham was laid in honor in the U.S. Capitol Building Rotunda.  He was only the fourth private citizen to ever lie in honor at the Capitol, and the first since Rosa Parks in 2005.  I don’t think Graham was a perfect man (as obviously none of us are) and neither do I think his theology was perfect (as none of ours is), but I believe that he understood the gospel and a lot of those coming out of the woodwork now against him, I think, at least in some instances, are misconstruing what he believed and taught.  You can make anyone sound like a heretic by selectively taking a few sentences out of context, but I’m interested in what someone consistently taught over a lifetime.  Graham categorically denied the false accusation of universalism (see here) and while I personally disagree with some of his teachings and methods, universalismand inclusivism are not the same thing.
Universalism (not to be confused with Universal Reconciliation “U.R.”) teaches that there are many paths to God and that Jesus is not the only way.  Universalism is a pagan, false, and heretical belief.  Inclusivism emphatically teaches that Jesus is the only way to Heaven and it upholds historic Christian beliefs, however, it teaches that Jesus will save even some who had never heard of the gospel (still only because of His atoning death on the Cross).  1 Peter 3:18–20 and Romans 2:1–16 are often offered in defense of inclusivism and it appears that Graham may have been open to this belief, however, in his 2013 book co-authored with his son Franklin, he seemed to be much more exclusivist in his leanings.
It is important to challenge heresy and defend God’s Word, but it is also important to understand what it is you’re attacking or else you might be guilty of bearing false witness and falsely accusing.  Graham preached the gospel of salvation through Christ alone to literally tens of millions of people and I will not be the judge of his heart (see Rom. 10:5–13).
I’ve never met an Evangelical Christian (at least that I’m aware of) that is a pure exclusivist.  Pure exclusivism, by definition, would mean that all babies, mentally handicapped, and Old Testament saints would not be saved.  A good discussion on this can be found on GotQuestions.org.
4. By a single vote margin, the Israeli Knesset voted to bar supermarkets and businesses from being open on the Sabbath day.  The new law also grants the Israeli government power to override municipal laws that would allow work and entertainment on the Sabbath.  It is continuing evidence that the Orthodox Jewish community is growing rapidly in the country and is successfully reverting the nation back to its ancient, biblical customs.
5. In another amazing 70 year / generational marker, Prince William will be visiting Israel, becoming the first British royal to ever make an official visit to the country.  His visit will happen this summer, not long after Israel’s 70th anniversary.

Beginning Of The End Of Mueller’s Investigation?

mueller

For over a year we’ve heard constant accusations from the media and key Democrats that President Trump’s campaign colluded with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.  While people closely following the investigation have spotted major holes in the accusers’ story, they have not relented—even in the face of a congressional memo that directly connected the initial FISA warrants that led to the investigation to the fake anti-Trump dossier.

Today Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced that the investigation has led to the indictments of 13 Russian nationals who tried to influence the election, but he made clear they appeared to have no witting American accomplices and that their efforts would not have changed the outcome of the election.  In response to the news, the President quickly tweeted that there was no collusion:

Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President. The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong – no collusion!

Memo On FISA Snooping Drops, Dow Closes Down 666 Points

memo

It’s now official—the House Intelligence Committee memo on possible FBI snooping of the Trump transition team has been released and it reveals that the fake intelligence dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign was used to obtain FISA warrants.  This is major news and appears at first glance to be on par with the Watergate Scandal.

At the same time, and perhaps precipitated by the memo’s release and what might be an ensuing constitutional crisis, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has closed down 665.75 points (666 points rounded).  Today’s close is one of the biggest single-day crashes in history and makes this the worst week for the stock market in two years.

Honduras And Panama To Move Embassies To Jerusalem

Following the U.S. and Guatemalan decisions recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and announcing plans to move their respective embassies to the ancient city, other Central American countries, Honduras and Panama, have announced to the Palestinian Authority that they are following suit.

The news is a huge political victory for Israel and Israeli sovereignty over the Holy City.  Just days before the announcement, the Czech Republic officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and in conjunction with Hungary helped block an E.U. resolution that would voiced opposition to Trump’s recent decision.
