A New Beast emerging out of the Persian Gulf???

 "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy" (Revelation 13:1)

A tripartite summit?    Are these the three "frog spirits"???     A new empire arising from the Euphrates??

A Purim "miracle"?

A recent article began thus;

"Is an apocalyptic war on Iran by the US and Israel coming, driven by American Evangelical "rapture" theology of end times prophecy? Pompeo's latest suggestion that God "raised Trump for such a time as this" doesn't bode well for the region, or at least for those who hope to avoid a WWIII scenario. Apparently, Pompeo truly believes that Trump was sent by God to save Israel, and that the Golan is to be the first US bestowed "gift" bringing the world closer to "end times" fulfillment.

Trump is prepared to recognize the Golan heights as belonging to Israel:

This is indeed a Purim "miracle" causing his Secretary of State to find parallels between Trump and Queen Esther.

http://www1.cbn.com/content/why-pompeo-says-trump-possible-queen-esther-poised-defend-israel

This has me rather confused as I thought Trump was Cyrus? Perhaps he is both as the Christian-Zionist website suggests:

Is Trump Cyrus or Esther?

Is Trump Cyrus or Esther?

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/125083/trump-channeling-cyrus-on-purim-us-will-recognize-israels-sovereignty-over-golan/

Well, whether he is a King or a Queen he certainly supports Israel....I wonder what his "peace" plan has in store? Both Muslims, Jews and Christian-Zionists believe they can force the return of the "messiah" (or install their own messiah/mahdi) if they foment enough trouble in the Middle East......is it a case of "build it and he will come".....or..."destroy it and he will come"? In any case Christian-Zionists will be safe as they will be "Raptured" away (including Pompeo Secretary of State):

 

All is well:

Prophetic Events

Since Dec 2018 the following events have occurred in Israel;

  • Sanhedrin letter inviting 70 nations to Israel
  • Dedication of the altar at Hanukah
  • Selection of the Red heifer
  • Plan to sacrifice a lamb at Passover

These preparations are all happening during the 70 th "Jubilee" anniversary of Israeli nationhood. The events point to a desire to establish the Third Temple as a "house of prayer" for all nations. Some rabbi's have calculated the significance of certain feast days (using the so called "bible code") as the date when the messiah (obviously not Jesus) will be revealed. See the following interviews with a messianic Jew who regards the developments in a positive light although he (rightly) denies the necessity for a temple.

The Peace Plan (update)

See the video link for the video:

Jared Kushner Has A Peace Plan (Passover 2019)

Apparently the peace plan will be announced after the Israeli elections in about two months time. It is true that certain rabbi's are predicting the anointing of messiah at Purim and it is also fact checked that Kushner purchased building 666 in NY. Although the video makes some interesting points we treat it cautiously with a degree of skepticism. It is however interesting to note that other Christians are watching developments in the Middle East so closely.    https://youtu.be/qn09mY79EVY

Trump and the Middle East peace deal after the midterms

With the Democrats winning the House the only way Trump will get anything done now will be by Executive Order. Perhaps a "nice little" war will help the President focus the country and allow him to exercise more executive powers....otherwise he is a lame duck President and will get little done internationally.

This article on the Unraveling of Netanyahu's ME project is worth a read:

NOTE: JCPOA= The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known commonly as the Iran nuclear deal or Iran deal, is an agreement on the nuclear program of Iran reached in Vienna on 14 July 2015 between Iran, the P5+1, and the European Union.

The Ultimate Deal

Nothing seems to be happening with the “ultimate deal” (the Trump peace plan) but that is to be expected with the up-coming mid-term elections. If Trump wins “bigly” taking both the house and senate he will have destroyed the Democratic Party. His strategy of divisiveness and confusion seems to be working and he has chalked up big wins with the appointment of SCOTUS and the negation of the Meuller investigation and “Stormy”. The wobbles in the stock market effecting assets values will do little to harm his core constituents.   With a reasonable win under his belt we can expect the peace process to proceed.  Both Trump’s backers and his opponent’s backers are Jewish billionaires with seemingly different agendas.

 

The big picture emerging in the Middle East is that we have an Israel-America-Saudi Alliance supported (at least in part) by other Sunni states (Egypt, Jordan etc) versus Syria-Russia-Iran-Hezbolla (a Shiite alliance). Of course allegiances are complex and often shifting (cf. Turkey). If Israel is “removed” from the equation by making peace with the Sunnis then expect either regime change or war with Iran.  In order to “make peace” the Palestinian problem needs to be neutralized.

Peace is being negotiated by Kushner (Trumps son-in law) with his aide Greenblat, both are Jewish and pro-Israel and no Muslim representative is on the team. Meanwhile the Palestinians are being starved of funds in the lead up to the “peace process”.

According to Robert Fisk, one of two of the Western World's best journalists on Middle Eastern affairs, the Donald's big beautiful peace deal with the Palestinians came down to the Saudi's bank rolling a buyout of Palestinian land.  The question is whether MbS (the prince) and his father are in agreement with this proposal.   It seems that the father of MbS refused and pushed for the original Saudi package which hinged on two States with the 1967 borders dividing the two.

However, after the recent fiasco in Saudi with the journalist it seems that a Saudi Coup is "imminent" as the Crown Prince's uncle arrives to oust "toxic" MbS.[1] We obviously do not know what is going on behind the scenes but recent actions have put MbS in an intolerable position and he already has many internal enemies in the Royal family. Perhaps this reckless, cruel and precipitate action was orchestrated deliberately to damage MbS? Either that or he is incredibly stupid and arrogant. Who knows? What we can say is that everything can change in a moment.

Details of the plan that have “leaked” are (according to Fisk) as follows;

For the drip-feed of detail which is emerging about the Trump-Kushner “ultimate deal” in Israeli newspapers – the venerable Haaretz in the lead – is that Palestinians will have to “abandon East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestine”, that Israel will withdraw from a handful of villages east and north of Jerusalem – the measly Abu Dis among them – to create a Potemkin “capital”, but will remain forever in the Old City. That a Palestinian state will be completely demilitarised (so much for “security”), but that every Jewish colony constructed illegally on Arab land – for Jews and Jews only – will remain, and that Israel will control the entire Jordan Valley. Right of return? Forget it....All this nonsense depends on the largesse of Saudi Arabia – whose bungling crown prince appears to be arguing with his kingly father, who does not want to abandon the original Saudi initiative for a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital – and the feebleness of King Abdullah of Jordan, whose country’s IMF-imposed financial suffering has provoked unprecedented riots and the fall of his government, and the support of Egypt’s field marshal/president who will supposedly be happy to impose law and financial benefits on the Egyptian-Gaza border. Oh yes, and there will be no real contact between Gaza and the West Bank. Hamas has been forgotten, it seems…..no East Jerusalem, no end to colonisation, no recognition of the right to return, no state, no future. Just cash.[2]

It is unlikely that the Palestinians will give up their desire for their own state for a “fist full of dollars” even if Gaza can be turned into a “new Dubai” (or Singapore). We shall see what happens, perhaps starvation of funds and humiliation is intended to provoke an all out war that will justify further expulsions.  Who knows?  Everything in the Middle East is up for grabs and things can change very rapidly.

Update: Peace Plan and Red Heifer

The next few years will be very interesting:

Trump was going to reveal his peace plan at the UN in September but it has been postponed - expected sometime in January/Febuary?
Trump Vows to Release Mideast Peace Plan Within 4 Months
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/26/world/middleeast/trump-israel-palestinians.html

The ashes of the Red Heifer will be ready to use sometime in 2020:
At the ceremony Rabbi Azriel Ariel announced the birth of the red heifer.
“This is the beginning of a long process that will, God willing, allow us to purify all of Israel, Rabbi Ariel said. “This is not us forcing God’s hand. We are simply performing mitzvoth (Torah commandments) as given to us in the Torah.”
He explained that the actual preparation of the ashes will be in two years. Until that time, it is considered an egla (calf) by Jewish law. At the age of two, it becomes classified a para (heifer) and can be sacrificed and burned, it’s ashes used in the purification ritual.

Holy Cow: The ritual of the Red Heifer and the Third Temple

Red Cow, Red Heifer, ashes of heifer

Ritual of the Red Heifer (Numbers 19)

 

A recent article begins with the words, “Last Tuesday, the Temple Institute’s Red Heifer program was blessed with results; an entirely red female calf was born, paving the way for re-establishing the Temple service and marking the final stage of redemption”.[1] This event has been picked up by newspapers world-wide with such lurid headlines as, “First ‘red heifer’ born in Israel for 2000 years triggers Armageddon fears”[2] and “End of the World fears: First red heifer 'born in Israel in 2,000 years fulfils prophecy'.”[3] Secular Jews have gone on record as wishing the young cow would just disappear; some have even suggested that it be destroyed to avoid a potential war.  This may seem an over-reaction but Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon (Maimonides), the most renowned medieval Jewish scholar known by the acronym Rambam, wrote in his explanation of the mitzvah that “the tenth red heifer will be accomplished by the king, the Messiah; may he be revealed speedily, Amen, May it be God’s will.”

The “red heifer” that has recently been born and certified “unblemished” is the tenth one, and the first red heifer since the destruction of the temple in AD 70. This is a powerful sign for “third temple fanatics” as rebuilding the third temple is closely linked with the appearance of the Messiah and the third temple cannot be built unless there is a way to cleanse the priesthood. That is why they require the Red Heifer.

Video's on the temple and Trump

Below are links to two instructive video's.  While not in complete agreement with everything that is said -the points about the temple are valid.  The Trump video is also instructive (for obvious reasons);

 

Trump has been planning this for 35 YEARS!

Peace under the new Cyrus (Donald Trump)?

Trump’s peace plan for Israel will be revealed in September[1] shortly after the Jewish New Year and the Day of Atonement fast,[2] which happens in the 70 th year of Israel’s existence. Third Temple fanatics have already pointed out that Donald Trump has a name with the same gematria value as “Messiah of the house of David” (see previous posts) and declaring him the “new Cyrus”.

Now they are producing a coin to raise money for building the “Third Temple”:[3]

 

 

Trump and Cyrus

 

 

This is a repeat pattern.  The Jews did the same when they approached Cyrus and showed him that their scripture predicted an early return and rebuilding of the temple. The pagan “Cyrus” was the “Messiah” now it is Donald Trump.

A quick reminder – in my commentary on Daniel, “God is Judge” (GIJ) It was suggested that Isaiah 45 was deliberately manipulated to read KORESH (Cyrus) instead of KARASH (workman). There was no pointing (vowels) in the original Hebrew. The “workman” in Isaiah who would restore Jewish fortunes (after the Assyrian invasion) was obviously Hezekiah (who typified Christ).  In this I find myself in agreement with Thirtle and Whittaker who held the same views. (There are also many other scholars who argue against a Cyrus reading). I recommend reading the relevant chapter in GIJ and the Addendum (which is on the website – it contains additional new material not present in GIJ). To sum up:

 

 

  • Cyrus did not rebuild the temple (even Josephus admits this)
  • Cyrus issued a decree (that got lost in the archives)
  • Darius rebuilt the temple 21 years later

 

So, on all scriptural metrics the prophecy fails (if it refers to Cyrus). The Jews are doing what they always have done when they act unfaithfully – they use scripture to flatter and manipulate Gentile rulers. Some of the people pushing the agenda are Knesset Mp’s.[4]

 

"The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by 
reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength
labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away" 
(KJV Psalm 90:10).

 

Perhaps the next ten years will be "labour and sorrow"?
