Daniel's 70th Week and the Harpazo


UPDATE 01 September 2015: It's always a very disturbing thing to see such rampant deviation from the doctrine to be found within the Word of God coming from people who self-identify as believing Christians. It is everywhere one casts his or her gaze these days. It is beyond me to understand why such people will go to other men or women for religious doctrine instead of to Living Word of God, and the Holy Spirit which the Lord sent to be among us, to instruct, convict and assist us. But, you know what, all of this apostasy is yet another 'sign of the times', a sign of the great apostasy that is as much a part of last days eschatology as the battle of Gog/Magog or the 70th Week itself. These things are all synonymous indications and warning of precisely what time we live in.  

28 August 2015:  It's time once again for an update regarding the Harpazo of the bride of Christ due to the fact that there is now an in-progress effort by some false teachers who are going to try to convince as many of you as is possible of a couple of things. One thing is that everything you know about the 'end times' is wrong, and the other is that Harpazo will not occur prior to the 70th Week, but during it. 

I will not name these false teachers because it may well be that their names might not be written in the Book of Life, so why should I name them in this space? (Matthew 7:21) They also wish to make a large sum of cash money TO COME DIRECTLY FROM YOU for their effort to instruct their unbiblical nonsense, so you will learn of their names soon enough. These are not Christian brethren that constantly argue against us in our belief as led by the Holy Spirit. They are clearly identified as last days 'Laodiceans' in Revelation 3:15-19.

These false teachers will attempt to instruct that the bride of Christ will be subject to the wrath of God during the 70th Week; that the cataclysmic effects upon the whole earth as the Lord Jesus Christ opens the seven seals will also befall the bride of Christ as much as it will those who would believe the lie of Satan and his beast and false prophet.

I will use the word of God, as given to the apostle Paul in his letter to the Ephesians (link embedded in the text for context), to preemptively destroy everything these false teachers have to say to us and to the as yet unsaved masses.  The Harpazo of the bride of Christ will occur prior to the 70th Week, and Paul was inspired by the Holy Spirit to tell us why this IS the fact of the matter:


"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish."
Let me repeat: We, the bride of the LORD Jesus Christ, God incarnate, are beloved by Him, He gave Himself for us, and He washes us and cleanses us by the power of His word, so that He will soon present us to Himself as a glorious bride, without so much as a single spot or wrinkle, completely holy and without blemish! 

Does this sound even remotely like the bride of Christ will be subject to the wrath of God loosed upon the world during the 70th Week? Is any of the bride of Christ to be subject to death, disfigurement, disease, dismemberment, tortured, raped, pillaged, bloodied and bruised? Of course not! So as you come to see the assault from the false teaching of disreputable men, stop them in their tracks and refute them with His word that washes us and makes us glorious for Him to present us to Himself.


29 September 2013: It has been suggested by a couple of those Christians who do not believe there can be any pre-70th Week wars because God would not allow them prior to the Harpazo/Rapture because that would be tantamount to judgment befalling the Bride of Christ. It is those Christians then that the key question of this addendum is addressed: How do you reconcile the current and ongoing wholesale extermination of Christians in the Middle East by Islamic Jihadists? The rampant martyrdom of our brethren across the whole of the Middle East and and Southwest Asia, excepting only the State of Israel, has reached epic if not Biblical proportions. Therefore and within your own eschatological view, how do you deal with this most uncomfortable truth?

UPDATED and REVISED 23 September 2013: Following some fairly intensive study I feel there's a need to update this post with some additional information which is directly relevant to where I left off with the 19 July update. As stated in the second-to-last paragraph, I believe there is a direct prologue correlation of the coming Harpazo of the Bride of Christ with the Harpazo of Enoch prior to the Flood.

However, that is not the most appropriate prologue to cite according to what I believe God has informed us of in Genesis 6 and 7.  Noah, his sons, their wives and the building of the ark itself as an avenue of escape from the judgment of the Flood is an exceptionally poignant and prophetic prologue.  The enigmatic verses of 2 Thessalonians 2:1-6, which many pre-70th Week dispensationalists do an eschatological tap dance around, is resolved fully and to the literal letter of Paul's inspired declaration on the subject.

Make no mistake, I am definitively of the pre-70th Week dispensational view, however it is entirely due to what God says in His Living Word of Genesis 5, 6 and 7 that I no longer can accept that there will be any gap of time between the Harpazo and Day 1 of the 70th Week.

This is really so simple I feel I should head-slap myself as NCIS' Jethro Gibbs would head-slap Tony DiNozzo for some unprofessional silliness simply because I did not see this sooner. 

Genesis 5:32 and 6:10 tell us Noah was 500 years old and to him were born after his 500th year three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth.


Genesis 6:3 and 6:13 and 6:17 provide the details that the Lord's judgment was announced in advance and would come upon the earth in exactly 120 years time from Noah's 500th year on the earth. Noah and sons were found to be pure in the generations from Adam; that is to say their DNA was pure and uncorrupted by any fallen angelic corruption, and so they were excepted from the wrath to come, to be saved from the coming judgment of destruction upon the earth. 

Then Noah receives his precise instructions from the Lord on how he is to construct the ark and he does exactly as commanded. Clearly to be assumed from the text here is that Noah's sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, were all born and raised to a working age during the 20 years following Noah's receiving this instruction from God. Therefore, since Shem, Ham and Japheth are not known to us to have been triplets, at the minimum their ages would have been 20, 19 and 18, respectively, when the laborious task of constructing the ark was begun in earnest.


Then at Genesis 7:1, 6 and 11 come the very interesting details. Here the Lord informs us that the construction of ark was completed. Noah and his family are told to enter into the ark and the Flood commences on that same day. 

This day is specified in Genesis 7:6 to have occurred when Noah was 600-years old -- and Genesis 7:11 gets very specific that this occurred on the 17th day of the 2nd month of that 600th year. No reason is given for this specificity, but my sense in literally interpreting this is that it somehow relates directly to the future Harpazo (end of the Age of Grace - start of the 70th Week) occurring within the exact same template of a certain specified or appointed day and hour known only by God the Father. 

This, obviously, brings us to the point wherein I am sure some of my fellow dispensationalists will object to what has been written here thus far. They will say, "Ah, but you have violated the the inviolable, you have violated the "Doctrine of Imminence. This cannot happen." Really?  What is the "Doctrine of Imminence?" Is the "Doctrine of Imminence" given to us in the plain text of His Word, is it demonstratively inspired of the Holy Spirit, or is it something that has been interpretively inferred by fallible men based upon what the Lord has said, both in text and in-person? Obviously, this doctrine has been interpretively inferred in relatively recently times by men, and therefore it suffers from a weakness that must be defended.

What is provided here is based upon the God-breathed narrative about the Flood of Noah, and this includes the prophetic template or foreshadowing that the very elect of God were saved from certain destruction via Divine judgment of a kind that had never before occurred on the earth. Also included here is the direct albeit figurative reference from the angel Gabriel to the prophet Daniel that the end of the present age will come "the end thereof shall be with a flood" (Daniel 9:26c) and the very specific reference given to us by the Lord Jesus Christ in the Olivet Discourse found in Matthew 24:36-39 (emphasis added):
"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be."
Need any more be stated?

13 July 2011: This time we're back into the "meat and 'taters" of eschatological study. I say "meat and 'taters" because this is some truly heavy fare that will require significant Berean study, commentary, and probably some editing in the process. I am not really teaching anything with this post, but rather I'm as much learning in this process as are those who are reading this for the first time.


To begin with, a verse from Daniel that we should all be quite familiar with. It is this verse which I believe is indicative of both the revealing of the Antichrist and the commencement of Daniel's 70th Week and the imminent Harpazo of the Bride of Christ which meany teach is a signless event.


"Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering." (Daniel 9:27a NKJV)


How does this verse relate to Paul's exhorations to the Thessalonians who were very concerned that Daniel's 70th Week had commenced.


"Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4)


If 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 is definitively referring to the Harpazo of the Bride of Christ, then clearly that event is not signless event with spiritual apostasy and the revealing of the Antichrist being definitive temporal signs that the Harpazo must occur after the restrainer is moved out of the way. As Paul strenuously exhorts - let no one deceive us in any way about this.


So, if I understand this correctly, and I think I've done my homework here, what Paul is teaching to the Thessalonians, and to all Christians up to the present time, is that the apostasy (falling away) precedes the revealing of the Antichrist and the revealing of the Antichrist precedes the Harpazo.


Here is where I, as a pretribulationist believer, found that I must assume in reading these verses that Paul had taught the Thessalonians about a pretribulation Harpazo. Indeed the assumption is correct because Paul so states in the very next verse (2 Thessalonians 2:5) that he had previously taught the Thessalonians exactly that.


However, in spite of the teaching they had received the Thessalonians thought they were living in the tribulation, during Daniel's 70th Week. They were extremely concerned that they had missed the Harpazo which in turn made Paul's correction to them in these verses absolutely necessary; he had to prove to them in no uncertain terms that the Harpazo had not occurred and thus gave them specific signs with with to prove his teaching and alleviate their fears.


UPDATE 19 July 2011: I believe the restrainer is the Bride of Christ empowered by the Holy Spirit.

In my study I realized that knowledge of who the restrainer is has been the fact of the matter since the Day of Pentecost (read: Paul in Romans 5:5). The restrainers role will end on the Day of Harpazo. This finite period of time is also referred to as the Dispensation of Grace, and is referred to by Paul in Romans 11:25 as "until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in."

As for Daniel's 70th Week, we all know those literal 7 years have two 42-month long halves. It is the second half which is a Great Tribulation like nothing ever experienced on the earth in the past or ever again in the future. The near annihilation of all life on the earth if those future days are not cut short by the direct intervention of God.

Those months are foretold in the Old Testament.

Isaiah 26:19-21 (Isaiah refers to this period as "the indignation" and also prophecy's the Harpazo will "hide" us in certain chambers until this period of time is past. Those chambers (literally "dwellings") were revealed to us by the Lord Himself in John 14:1-3. Zephaniah also speaks to our being "hid" in "the day of the LORD's anger (i.e. the day of the LORD's wrath). The same is said in Psalm 27:5.

As a template for the Harpazo of the Bride of Christ, I think the Harpazo of Enoch prior to Noah's Flood serves us very well. Genesis 5 tells us that Enoch lived 365 years and was Harpazoed straight to God. It is interesting to note here that by counting the years between Enoch's harpazo and day one of Noah's Flood we can see that he was caught up 531 years prior to the flood. Now while that's a serious amount of years prior to the end of that dispensation, it's all relative because people prior to the flood were on the average living for just under a millennium of years (circa 9 centuries give or take a decade or two). Now Psalm 90:10 tells us we live (on average) for 70 years or 80 years with strength.

The point is the Bride of Christ will be Harpazoed as was Enoch, prior to the wrath of God being poured out. And since Daniel's 70th Week is not relative to the Bride of Christ, but to Israel, we're gone prior to the commencement of those 7 years, and which our Lord said would be inclusive of the lifespan of the generation alive at that time. Given that the prophetic re-birth of Israel (Ezekiel 37) occurred 65 years ago, I would tend to think we're on the tail end of the timelime that's left prior to Daniel's 70th Week commencing.

Global SITREP D5-15: The Global 2030 Agenda and the Continuing War


Update 27 August 2015: I should have learned by now that when you think you've seen it all, you really haven't seen anything yet. The simplest way to say this is as follows: Charges of treason should be brought by Congress against the Obama Administration for authorizing the spending of US taxpayer dollars which paid for Radio Free Europe (RFE) to broadcast propaganda praising and lionizing the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps/Qods Force (IRGC/QF) and its commanding officer, General Qassem Soleimani. 

Both the IRGC/QF and Soleimani are designated terrorist entities according to the US government's own documentations. Both are beyond any doubt guilty of killing, wounding and horribly disfiguring more American servicemen in Iraq and Afghanistan than Al Qaeda and the Taliban combined in the past decade. 

Yet just two days ago, on August 25, 2015, the Administration allowed US taxpayer funded RFE to broadcast and publish on its website propaganda crafted by the media of the Iranian Ayatollah's "Death to America, Death to Israel" regime. That Iranian media is none other than the Fars News Agency. Our President and his Administration just gave aid and comfort to the enemy; it quite literally did the devil's own handiwork, and we paid for it!

Hear anything from American media about this blatant treason against us? I have been looking and listening for two days now and I've not seen so much as a syllable in spoken or printed word from American media, including FoxNews, about this. Not one word. And I have no doubt that this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg regarding the Obama Administration's pro-Iranian and anti-Israel propaganda effort in the main stream media and in alternative online media. This is what Obama and Kerry promised to the Ayatollah as a part of our capitulation in the JCPOA nuclear agreement in which we got nothing but a fast track to an Iranian-made nuclear weapons stockpile.

Hello, Congress? Mr. Trump? Mr. Cruz? Anyone?

Thank the LORD God that He is in complete control; His will is being done.

21 August 2015: Israeli PM Netanyahu and his war cabinet have responded forcefully to a volley of Iranian IRGC-Qods Force rocket fire into Israel near Kfar Sold that originated from the Syrian side of the Golan. These rockets were only successful in igniting a large brush fire which indicates they may have had incendiary vice anti-personnel warheads. 

Thus far the Israeli response has been limited to precision airstrikes and artillery counter-fire against at least fourteen Syrian positions killing or injuring a number of Syrian soldiers. These strikes have also reportedly destroyed additional missiles, fixed-site launching equipment as well as some of the IRGC-Hezbollah-Jihad Islami military personnel who launched the missile salvo. Unconfirmed reports say the IAF has also struck targets in or near Damascus. 

It is now obvious that Israeli media reports from last spring of the IDF having destroyed and therefore preempted any Iranian-Hezbollah military base-building in the Syrian Golan were wildly premature.

There has also been a rocket attack early this morning, likely related and Iranian-inspired as discussed below, by jihadi terrorists directed against Highway 443 motorists between Jerusalem and Modi'im Makabim-Re'ut located a few miles to the northwest. Highway 443 was also the site of jihadi terrorist rock-throwing attacks against Israeli civilians on Wednesday and Thursday. In at least one of those attacks one of the terrorists was shot dead by Israeli security forces. These jihadi terrorists have the very nasty habit of deliberately targeting motor vehicles carrying young Israeli parents and infants or young children. The near-term fate of these terrorists is therefore well deserved for killing and maiming infant Israeli citizens.

20 August 2015: Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras just announced he has resigned his post effective this evening to pave the way for snap elections on 20 September as called by Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos. The resignation announcement came just after Greece received a €13 billion bailout from the eurozone bailout fund known officially as the European Stability Mechanism.


19 August 2015: According to a lot of internet buzz, about a month from now a new and very secular paradigm concerning global governance and the direction it is supposed to taking in order to "save the world" will begin to take shape. 

It's probably not surprising to students of Bible prophecy that the leading institutional proponent for global governance, the United Nations, has suddenly found itself taking a back seat to the global governance encyclical put forward the Pope Francis of the Roman Catholic Church. This comes at a time when the UN's plans are no longer focused on  tackling various issues over the course of the entire 21st Century, but are being put into a type of bureaucratic overdrive (as if such an oxymoron could even exist) with benchmarks being itemized for 2016, 2020 and fully realized by the year 2030. This the is future the global elites want, and they want it to begin now and be completed in just 15 years. Why the rush?

The rush appears to have risen at this time due to the emergence of a much beloved global religious figure who has taken the leadership role from the international global elites regarding the best avenue into a Utopian future for planet Earth. With the target date of the year 2030 AD both the UN and the Pope have put forward plans to achieve the same goal: the eradication of all poverty and hunger in the world via a means which will provide an environmentally sustainable global economy. The Pope's version is known as Laudato Si’ which is medieval Italian for "Praise Be To You!." 'Paradise on Earth, our common home, because men want it so,' in other words. Praise to the created instead of the Creator. The thing is, even on paper and as bad as all of this is in the view of the born-again Christian, the encyclical generated by Pope Francis stands head and shoulders above the best the UN technocrats could produce and that has millions if not billions around the world very energized. It's as if the people are saying, "Give us some coins in our pockets and some food in our bellies and take our God-given freedom as payment."

The UN global elite's plan is like the old Communist five-year central planning vehicle on steroids. It is unapologetic global governance in charge of everything there is, cradle to grave socialism for the population of the entire planet. Wealth redistribution on a global scale. Wealthy 'have' countries with vibrant economies are to be brought low for the sake of the "have not" economies of under or lesser developed countries. This is nothing new, but being on steroids it is something far more dangerous. It should be pointed out that the generation-long Cold War was fought and won by Western countries over the Eastern bloc precisely to prevent what Agenda 2030 wants to accomplish. It doesn't take a rocket scientist, a bishop or even a UN delegate to realize that such an agenda is as much a catalyst for war as the old Communist manifesto was. It is this same agenda which lies at the heart of US President Barack Hussein Obama's ongoing effort to "fundamentally change America."

Who reading this does not recognize the emergence of the Beast system of global government and the Great Harlot of Revelation? And we all should know that in the end the Beast turns on  kills the Great Harlot. Can you hear the voice from heaven that John heard and which is already pleading, Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities." (Revelation 18:4-5) No doubt these two verses are a pre-70th Week altar call.


  The Signs Are Everywhere - War Is Coming

In this part of SITREP D5-15 it must be noted that Israel has made the preparations for the war that is coming. It has a new warfighting doctrine that was just published by IDF Chief of Staff General Gadi Eisenkot. This new doctrine's primary tenet is that the IDF must be ready to deliver an overwhelming military solution the the many threats Israel is currently facing within its borders, outside all of its borders and over the horizon in places like Iran. A military solution, not negotiation, nothing more or less than total war and unconditional victory over any enemy.

The new doctrine is seen on the Golan where the IDF has all but completed preparations for operations north of the Golan in Syria to deal with finality to the threats from Hezbollah, al-Nusra and the Islamic State. Also, according to General Eisenkot's "Gideon Plan" the IDF will also be rapidly transformed into a much leaner but far more lethal fighting force over the next five years. Another important fact is that Israel's cooperation with the Jordanian and Egyptian military forces as all of the earmarks of a newly emergent regional alliance. 

For example, when Jordanian F-16 fighters recently flew to the United States for a joint exercise with the US Air Force in Nevada, it was the Israeli Air Force's KC-707 air refueling tankers which accompanied and refueled them on that flight. Israel has also recently provided Jordan with a squadron of sixteen older but very lethal Cobra helicopter gunships. This is not an airborne weapons system one nation gives to a bordering enemy nation. In the south the IDF and the Egyptian Army are conducting joint operations and sharing intelligence  for future operations against the Islamic State's Wilayat Sinai. The operations against the Wilayat Sinai are being conducted deep in the Egyptian Sinai as well as along the frontier and near Gaza where recent fighting has flared and even threatens the lightly-armed American and other foreign troops at the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) North Camp. In the next war Israel fights against terrorists in Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank, Jordan and the Sinai there may well be no enemy survivors and therefore no enemy force to reconstitute itself as HAMAS is now doing in Gaza. The next war will be the last one of this type.

With specific respect to Iran, Eisenkot's new doctrine emphasizes offensive operations which will ensure the undermining of Iranian military strength; limit the scope of the operations the IRGC can now perform and circumvent all of Iran's intentions and abilities for the near future. Israel's forces are now structured to rain simultaneous destruction on tens of thousands of enemy targets in every theater of operations on land, sea or in the air. It is no accident that the IDF's new warfighting doctrine expressly identifies with the imprecatory part of what Asaph was inspired to prophesy in Psalm 83:9-18.


What? You thought that was it, end of  the SITREP, end of the what the future holds in store? Negative, we're just getting started; the worst is yet to come!

Remember above where I wrote, "It doesn't take a rocket scientist, a bishop or even a UN delegate to realize that such an agenda is as much a catalyst for war as the old Communist manifesto was." That was no joke. What is the bottom line for both the UN and the Pope's encyclical? The management of global resources. What is the most important global resource, the one that makes everything go round? The image above is a hint. It's OIL, and the gas that naturally accompanies it, and the continual war for the resources of oil and gas will be one of if not the primary cause of the series of wars that will "carry them all away like a flood."

And where is the predominant geographic location of this oil resource in the world. 55 to 60 percent of it is located in the Middle East. From the Caucasus of Azerbaijan, south through Iraq and Iran, to Kuwait and into the Gulf and Arabia and east to the Eastern Mediterranean between Israel and Cyprus. One of Iran's not-often-listed but primary reasons behind its pursuit of nuclear weapons is the nuclear blackmail option they would afford the Shi'a Twelver Ayatollah. A nuclear Iran could blackmail the Sunni Arabians to behave and see things their way otherwise a nuke or two could wipe slick the financial underpinning of the Saudi Kingdom and leave the Gulf States sitting like ripe fruit waiting to be plucked. Now, perhaps, you see why the Sunni's of the Gulf and Arabia might not have such a problem with aligning themselves and their military forces with those of Israel. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

But the oil war and the futile UN/Papal contrary to human nature plans to stage manage these resources and sources of immense wealth on a global scale will still erupt. The Gog/Magog confederation will still march (fly actually) in a bold attempt to seize these spoils beginning with Israel and the Eastern Mediterranean resources (oil and gas) basin. A global resource pretty much guarantees a global war to control it. What is one of the things that Bible prophecy makes very clear about conditions right at the start of the 70th Week? This happens as detailed in Revelation 6 as Jesus Christ commences opening the seven seals. The first seal releases a false messiah riding on a white horse, "conquering and to conquer." The second seal is opened by our Lord to release the fiery red horse. Look now at the image directly above. I have deliberately selected this image as it is both representative and illustrative of war, global thermonuclear war, over the control of oil resources on a global scale. And then our Lord opens the third seal to release the black horse. Black is symbolic of death due to scarcity; it is also symbolic of oil as I will now explain. 

What is it that becomes scarce which quickly causes death on a mass scale? Food! Sustenance. Starvation from the lack thereof. A voice from among the four living creatures in heaven at this time in Revelation 6 cries out: A quart of wheat for an entire days wages, and three quarts of barley for a an entire days wages; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”  This is what is going to happen when oil production fields and refineries are obliterated by the coming nuclear conflagration because oil is essential in this world for the production of food. Absolutely essential. You see oil, also known as petroleum, is essential for farming as it is the basic internal building block for virtually all fertilizers and pesticides. Take away these petroleum products from the worlds farmers and what the voice from among the four living creatures says in Revelation 6 immediately transforms from prophetic Scripture into cold hard and deadly reality. The price of basic food ingredients like wheat and barely will more than quadruple in cost to the consumer -- if the consumer can get to it to purchase it! The petroleum-based fuel to take this raw food stuffs from the farm to the market and then transport around the world will be in very short supply. What had cost a couple of dollars for a family to feed itself will suddenly cost what the breadwinner literally makes in an entire day. Nations will then horde what petroleum, gas and other related resources they have any control over in order to fight the wars which occur as the Lord opens the remaining four seals. 

Time is short for saving souls for the Lord Jesus Christ before this coming flood takes them all away. The only real and meaningful time we have is right now. Get busy. Marana'tha!

Global SITREP D4-15: As It Was in the Days of Noah


UPDATE 9 August 2015: To correct the record on the mainpage as has been done in the comments section, Senator Ted Cruz, candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, is one of the 57 million born-again Christians living in these United States. He is a brother-in-Christ.

More new Intel. Also discovered thus far during the live televised GOP debates is that FoxNews is not the conservative, Christian-oriented media outlet they would like us to believe they are. Not even close. The FoxNews moderators (principally Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier) operated in the first debate more as political operatives (a/k/a: political hacks) than as the "fair and balanced" journalists they pretend to be. It is my opinion their roles, attitudes and activities in the debate were under the express direction of their boss, FoxNews owner Rupert Murdoch. Where previously FoxNews had been Donald Trump's most vociferous champion, it has since Trump's rise in the GOP polls to challenge and supplant Jeb Bush as the leading candidate that it has turned upon 'the Donald' like a junk-yard dog. The image below goes a long way to explaining why this is so.


Seated, left to right, in the above image of December 2014 are Jeb Bush, Rupert Murdoch and (gasp) Valerie Bowman Jarret all sharing some smiles. Happy times among best friends; all breaking bread and drinking expensive wine together, right? Allow me to interpret this image in a slightly different and hopefully more accurate manner. Seated, left to right, are the Establishment Bush-Dynasty RINO-Republican, the alleged Conservative Media Mogul of FoxNews, and the Card-Carrying Communist Overlord and Inner Sanctum Advisor of the Amerrican and Israel hating Obama Administration. Make sense now? 

As stated above, this image goes a long way towards explaining the nature of secular power politics and strange alliances within the RINO-controlled GOP that are almost always hidden from your gaze and knowledge. This is why I believe our brother and Senator (R-TX) Ted Cruz is standing head-and-shoulders above all the rest of the GOP candidates for the nomination and, God-willing, to become our President-elect next November.

7 August 2015: This has all been precisely foretold by our Lord Jesus Christ! How many times have I written on these pages about the coming flood? A flood of wars, in sequence, one more devastating than the one which follows? The flood is coming.

As recorded by the Apostle Matthew (24:37-41):

"As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left."


We are living in the days immediately prior to the flood of end times wars. 

Did anyone, moderator or candidate, in last nights Republican presidential debate quote the Word of God in their question, or response or rebuttal? 

No, not one! And the same will be true of a Democrat debate. Not one of them knows anything about what is going to happen!

But we do. We, the Bride of Christ, know a great deal as our Lord has told us all of these things ahead of time so that we will not be caught unawares.

Global SITREP D3-15: The Secret IAEA-Iran Deal Exposes Obama Lies


UPDATE 28 July 2015: It is possible that French President Fran├žois Hollande recently let slip the condition under which the Iranian nuclear program would immediately come under military attack "by Israel and other nations." That condition amounts to any indication that Iran has not kept to the letter the many detailed obligations it has signed onto in the agreement.

27 July 2015: In the image above U.N. IAEA Secretary-General Yukio Amano and Iranian nuclear energy (AEOI) chief Ali Akbar Salehi pose with the secret agreements made between them on the very day the P5+1 announced a nuclear "deal" had been achieved. 

The blue-colored folders contain two secret agreements, i.e. secret "side deals," that the Obama Administration initially denied existed to both the U.S. Congress and to the American people, but was eventually forced to admit as a fact when a duo of Republican Senators (Mike Pompeo of Kansas and Tom Cotton of Arkansas) accidentally discovered the secret agreements during a meeting with an IAEA functionary in Vienna, Austria. This meeting occurred within a couple days of the announcement of the P5+1 acceptance of the Comprehensive Joint Plan of Action (CJPOA). The P5+1 agreement is also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

So what was it that Obama deliberately attempted to conceal from Congress? 

Oh, just that the secret accords between the Global Government entity of the United Nations IAEA were never so much as seen by SECSTATE Kerry's eyeballs, nor will their contents ever be divulged to any American at any time or under any circumstance, not will any American have any role whatsoever in the on-the-ground IAEA verification process of Iranian compliance with the CJPOA, or the Possible Military Dimensions (PMD) issue regarding Parchin and other Iranian nuclear weapons related sites where nuclear warhead testing has occurred in the recent past. 


President Barack Hussein Obama delivered the CJPOA to the U.S. Congress with the declaration that the agreement was not based upon trust, but rather, was based upon a regime of "unprecedented verification." And he said this with a straight face.

This is akin to allowing the fox to tell the farmer that all of his chickens are safe and sound in the coop and that he need not call the sheriff to investigate a highly probable series of Gallus gallus domesticus homicides on the farm. 

Obama and Kerry think we Americans are stupid. Really stupid. They think the Israelis and the Saudi Arabians are really stupid also. They really must think all of us just fell off the proverbial turnip truck. The only way the Obama Administration's belief in our collective stupidity will be proven accurate is if our elected representatives in Congress vote to accept this "deal." On that day the very notion of American sovereignty will have died an easily avoidable death, and we'll only have ourselves to blame because we elected this Administration into office, not once, but twice. On that day We The People need to insist that the above named U.S. Senators commence impeachment proceedings against the Executive and Legislative branches of our government for failure to perform their sworn duties. So help us God.

Global SITREP D2-15: The Surest Sign of the End of the Age - PART II

Here as PART II of SITREP C-9-15 The Surest Sign of the End of the Age is the just published video presentation produced by The Temple Institute. 

Tisha b'Av: The Third Temple Plans Have Begun

Published on Jul 26, 2015
This is a walk-through the main sanctuary of the Holy Temple, showcasing decades of research and tens of innovative Halachic solutions to various perplexing issues that were resolved to create fully functional, ready-to-use plans. As the visual tour sweeps through the sanctuary, one can see the menorah, incense altar and showbread table, all of which have already been prepared by the Institute, among 70 other sacred vessels. The presentation was specially released to coincide with the Ninth of Av, the Jewish national day of mourning which commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples.
This is not a ‘virtual’ representation, but a portion of a complete and highly detailed architectural plan which has been prepared for the immediate construction of the Holy Temple. The plan includes all of components that will be used in building: marble, stone, concrete, wood, flooring materials, overlay of gold, etc.

The external view presents the openings, windows, chambers, the outer hall, the Sanctuary and the Holy of Holies.

In the first stage we are moving through the hall’s entrance. As we continue we arrive at the golden chains described in Tractate Middot, which the young priests-in-training would climb in order to view the decorative crowns that were placed in unique windows above the entrance to the Sanctuary. The visit continues on to the 38 chambers that surrounded the Sanctuary. The door opens and we find ourselves within the first chamber. We turn left and enter into the Sanctuary. From the right we see the three major vessels of the Sanctuary: The golden altar, the table of the showbread, and the menorah. We also see the curtain with its depiction of the two cherubim.

This curtain is actually a double curtain, that separates between the Holy area (the Sanctuary), and the Holy of Holies. We look up to the ceiling of the Sanctuary, which reaches a height of 40 amot. Near the ceiling are the ‘narrowing windows’ (Kings I 6:4) which direct from the Temple outwards.

Turning behind us, we see the doors of the Sanctuary towards the east, as they are opened each morning by the priests, revealing the blue skies of Jerusalem at sunrise.

From the Sanctuary, we turn back to the chambers and go out to the long passageway known as the ‘mesiba.’ We ascend stairs that lead to the roof of the chambers. We continue moving, encircling the Temple from the north and west, afterwards turning east.

At the end of the passageway stands a special ladder that is used to ascend to the upper level. This level has a very high level of sanctity. One opinion maintains that it is only entered once in seventy years (for maintenance purposes).

In summary, this is a highly-detailed building plan which includes room for further innovation by professionals and craftsmen, including decoration, heating and electric etc. According to the decisions of the steering committee that will be established to oversee the construction of the Third Holy Temple, which can be begun immediately.

The video comes one year after the Temple Institute appealed to its supporters to take part in an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign that raised over $100,000 for the architectural plans. The video was first released to supporters of a current campaign to raise the first kosher Red Heifer in Israel in over 2,000 years. Over the past five years, the organization has released its most ambitious campaigns and poignant videos to reframe the mourning period into one of active preparation for the Third Holy Temple.

Rabbi Chaim Richman, International Director of The Temple Institute noted: “One third of all Torah commandments pertain to the building of and service in the Holy Temple. Today, we not only mourn the destruction of the two Holy Temples, but also our inability to fulfill one third of the Torah. Over the last three decades, the Temple Institute has done everything in our power to research and prepare for the Third Temple. As world Jewry sits on the ground mourning the first two Temples, we have taken a huge leap towards the rebuilding, by releasing a 3D architectural rendition of the Third Temple”

The Temple Institute is the center of research and preparation for the Holy Temple. In addition to educational activity focused on the centrality of the Temple Mount and Holy Temple, the Institute have also recreated over 70 sacred vessels for use in the Third Holy Temple, which can be seen at their Visitors Center in the Old City of Jerusalem.Holy Temple, which can be begun immediately.

Global SITREP D1-15: The Sinai Peninsula and Greater Egypt (The War of Isaiah 19)

UPDATE 24 July 2015: I decided to bring SITREP A20-13 forward and relabel it as Global SITREP D1-15 because the events that have continued to tear at Egypt make it clear that the Isaiah 19 prophecy remains in the process of literal fulfillment. 

These current events are reported in our media as pitting terrorist organizations such as HAMAS, the Muslim Brotherhood. the al-Murabituun and Wilayat Sinai of the Islamic State against the Egyptian Government, but make no mistake, this is civil war exactly as prophesied by Isaiah 19:2 pitting Egyptian against Egyptian.

The current government of Egypt faces an expanding Sunni insurgency and finds itself in a situation where its closest military ally is actually the State of Israel. Egypt's Egyptian enemies are four-fold, yet the same as they are all Sunni Muslims waging jihad against the State. A brief look at each may serve us as this civil war progresses in the future.

We're already very familiar with the Sunni militants of the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwan al-Muslimuun), but we're not so familiar with the insurgent force known as the al-Murabituun. They are terrorists of crossed wires led by a former Egyptian special forces officer who has in recent times been directly linked to both Al-Qaeda and its original Egyptian-born half known as Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ) and the Islamic State in Sinai (Wilayat Sinai). Wilayat Sinai is the former al-Qaeda affiliate in the Sinai, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, which this year pledged itself to the Caliphate of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. There has always been a certain number of jihadists within the Egyptian military as evidenced in the assassination of President Anwar Sadat 34 years ago. And then there's the off-shoot of the Ikhwan in Gaza, HAMAS. These are the Egyptians set against Egyptians of Isaiah 19:2.

Remember this map from September 2014?

So severe is the existential threat facing the Egyptian government that it today extended the long-standing state of emergency declared for Sinai through October 2015. The northern Sinai is a virtual no-go zone for the Egyptian army these days with both HAMAS and Wilayat Sinai in total military control between Al-Arish and Rafah, Gaza. If you will recall, this entire area was offered about a year ago to the PA and HAMAS by the Egyptian government to combine with Gaza for the purpose of creating a territorial state of their own as a part of an overall peace deal following HAMAS' war with Israel (Operation Protective Edge). If you need a memory re-fresh on this particular issue, see the map above which I specifically created for Global SITREP D7-14: THE NEXT WAR.  

The "Next War" has begun. It is the War of Isaiah 19. Some times things take a year or more to come to a point of boiling over and the activities of the Islamic State's Wilayat Sinai along with the other Sunni jihadists in Egypt have managed to do just that. In the end the State of Israel will have to pacify the whole of Sinai as Egypt's military will have its hands full with Islamic State aligned jihadists on the Libyan border and in southern Egypt where yet another insurgency grows.

By the way, Israel will not only have to pacify the Sinai, but they also have a very firm military commitment to defend the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan from the Islamic State. The acquisition of this knowledge very recently brought me to a reading of Jeremiah 49 and the realization that the expansion of Israel into Jordan (as is clearly seen in Ezekiel 39:11) is closer than we may currently may think it is.

13 October 2013:  My original assessment below on Egyptian-Israeli military cooperation against the Islamists in Gaza, Sinai and even in the Nile Delta region has been confirmed 100%. 

This confirmation comes via a report issued on October 2, 2013 by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy entitled "
Israeli-Egyptian Peace: 40 Years After the 1973 War and Holding."
 

EXSUM OF THE REPORT:

Egyptian Defense Minister Abdul Fatah Sisi, in a reversal of state policy that has lasted since the 1979 peace treaty, has authorized the Egyptian military and intelligence community to maintain direct communications and coordination with their counterparts in Israel.

Previously this type of liaison with had been permitted only through the heavily Islamist MB-staffed Egyptian Foreign Ministry
. However, with the purge of the Islamist MB from the ministry and Egyptian government on the whole the Defense Minister directed the military and intelligence community to work directly with Israel
due to their shared mutual interest in curbing the terrorist factions that have emerged in Sinai over the past decade, threatening both the Israeli border and Egyptian control over the peninsula.

This liaison is now direct with high-level staffing of the Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate (GID) at the Egyptian Embassy in Tel Aviv. The GID has overall responsibility for maintaining the new relationship and Embassy senior consul is actually the senior resident GID representative. Israel has a reciprocal staffing arrangement in Egypt.  Both nations now have the shared view that HAMAS is a primary threat to the region, the United States under President Obama is not to be trusted, and Iran and its regional proxies are the major threat to the Middle East.

14 August 2013: The interim government of Egypt today declared a "State of Emergency" would exist beginning at 4 PM local time throughout the nation.  Approximately 1,000 Egyptians have been killed or wounded in the most recent hours of the civil war. It appears as if Egyptian security forces responded with lethal force after the Islamists opened fire on them at both the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque and Nahda Sqaure makeshift but fortified protest camps. Both camps were then bulldozed into oblivion by Egyptian security forces.

11 August 2013:  The map of the Sinai Peninsula above illustrates where the southern front of the coming Psalm 83 War, the fulfillment of Isaiah 19 and the subsequent Daniel 11 war of conquest of the Roman Antichrist will be focused.  This most strategic aspect of the entire region can roughly be defined as including the whole of the Sinai Peninsula, the Suez Canal and the Nile Delta. It is further defined by the three major bodies of international water which surround it: the Gulf of Aqaba, the Gulf of Suez and the Mediterranean Sea.

An Assessment of the Present Situation

The northern Sinai, from Port Said to Gaza along the Mediterranean Sea, is virtually lawless. This is "Lower Egypt." Fundamentalist Islam as manifest in a plethora of Islamic Jihadist groups runs rampant here. The Egyptian military is just beginning to execute an operation designed to bring this area firmly back under the control of the interim government in Cairo. That will require the annihilation of all jihadists out posts in the Sinai. Israeli assistance from an intelligence and mutually beneficial covert military perspective are essential for the success of the Egyptian operation.

Egypt, however, has a bigger problem to tackle than terrorism running rampant in the Sinai. In Egypt democracy, as we understand it, and fundamentalist Islam are mutually exclusive just as they are anywhere on planet Earth. This is just an undeniable fact and the source of Egypt's bigger problem. Through the current events clarifying lens of  Bible prophecy we can see both the origin and the outcome of this problem through the text of Isaiah 19, Ezekiel 29 as well as Daniel 11.

Firstly, Egypt embroiled in full-blown civil war, as described by Isaiah 19, is the only logical outcome of the current situation, just as it has been in Afghanistan and any other majority Muslim country where fundamentalist Islam is not the supreme political determinant.

Secondly, rampant Islamic fundamentalism in the Sinai is not a problem requiring American and/or European Union military intervention at this time. Foreign intervention will occur in the future of the 70th Week.  I believe that the person identified as a "cruel lord/master" (qasheh 'adown) and "fierce king"  ('az melek) in Isaiah 19:4 is a direct reference to the Antichrist who will conquer Egypt during the 70th Week as revealed in Daniel 11:43.

At the present time Islamic jihadism in the Sinai is an Israeli and Egyptian problem. Through their existing peace treaty the these two nations will solve the problem together, or through the Egyptian military's preoccupation with the civil war in the Nile Delta region, Israel will once again impose a security solution in the Sinai exactly as they have done several times previously. Israel will do this not to conquer the Sinai, but to secure it and free the Egyptian military to deal with the bigger problems in Egypt proper. 
Regarding the full map above. Another problem which will distract the Egyptian military is the Ezekiel 28 aspect which is focused along the Nile River, and particularly from the Aswan High Dam (Syene) to the frontier of Sudan and Ethiopia (Kuwsh).  This is "Upper Egypt" and the conflict described in that prophecy appears to emanate from an ongoing Ethiopian-Sudanese project to build a dam above the existing Egyptian High Aswan Dam.

Finally, the long-term aspects of the Egyptian civil war, which will eventually adversely impact essential commercial shipping through the Suez Canal, will force NATO (US/EU) to intervene to secure the entire length of the Canal Zone/Red Sea choke point.  This is, again, the Daniel 11 aspect and it will occur during the 70th Week under the reign of the Roman Antichrist.

What all of this illustrates is just how close this Earth is to the start of the 70th Week.
