CBN's Erick Stakelbeck Inerview with Israel's Minister of Economy, Naftali Bennett

21 April 2014: Naftali Bennett, born to American parents, is without question a very fast rising and increasingly powerful figure in Israeli politics. He is the leader of the Israeli political party Habayit Hayehud, or The Jewish Home, and the co-founder of the Israeli political movement Yisra'el Sheli, or My Israel. In the simplest terms understandable to American born-again Christians, Naftali Bennett is a Zionist within the context of all the Biblical prophecies regarding a re-born Israel in these last days. 

Naftali Bennett is the kind of Israeli leader I can envision as being the Rosh HaMemshala (Prime Minister) in office for the fulfillment of Isaiah 17; the Psalm 83 prophecy final engagements, and possibly even the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38/39. Since I do believe we are just so very close to the 70th Week, and based upon Naftali's experience as a member of Israel's elite special forces (Sayeret Maktal and Maglan), I can also envision him in the near future as possibly being or directly associated with what Israeli Orthodox religious leaders will herald as the long-awaited Moshiach ben Yosef, the great military leader of Israel prior to the appearance of the also expected Moshiach ben David.  Both are figures who are directly connected to the Jewish vision of the expected Messianic era.

All of that said, here is a link to brief article and a 'must see' embedded interview between CBN's Erick Stakelbeck and Naftali Bennett: Bennett: Judea, Samaria Key to Israel's Security.

He Is Risen!!!


20 April 2014 - 20 Nissan 5774: He is Risen and is Very Soon to Come Again!!!

"And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn."  - Zechariah 12:10

Global SITREP B19-14: "Cry Havoc! And Let Slip the Dogs of War!"

UPDATE  16 April 2014: The continuing and ever expansive Russian orchestration of military provocations and outright military aggression against Ukraine has finally resulted in a military response from NATO. In the US these facts on-the-ground in Ukraine have also finally been acknowledged by the White House. The Russian actions dictated by Tsar Vladimir Putin (a/k/a Gog) have been designed to look like a Ukrainian civil war. However, the fact of the matter is that these actions are purely Russian aggression in pursuit of military reconquest of territory that was formerly under the control of the Russian Empire and its heir, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR).

The NATO alliance this morning declared its intent to militarily oppose this Russian aggression. NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen just held a press conference in Brussels wherein he declared:

“We will have more planes in the air, more ships on the water and more readiness on the land. We will start to implement these measures straight away. Our decisions today are about defense, deterrence and de-escalation. They send a clear message: NATO will protect every ally and defense against any threat against our fundamental security. ”
In addition, James Jeffrey, the former Bush Administration Ambassador to Kuwait and Obama Administration Ambassador to Iraq, has made a very public call for the deployment of US ground combat forces in today's issue of the Washington Post.  Ambassador Jeffery's concluding paragraph reads:
"We do not need to be apologetic about the risk of even “tripwire” presences. Putin has no illusions about America’s combat-hardened conventional superiority. But by all appearances he has great doubt about America’s will to use force, and that creates a dangerous situation. After seeing American boots on the ground, Hussein decided not to threaten Kuwait anew. But recall that half a world away and six decades ago, the United States took a different approach, withdrawing its forces from South Korea. North Korea and its Russian supporters saw that as a green light to invade, only to learn, three years and millions of casualties later, that the United States was serious about defending a friend."
This will likely be the last update for Global SITREP B19-14; a new Global SITREP will take over where this one has left off.

14 April 2014: The United Nations Security Council emergency session intended to diffuse the Russian-Ukrainian military crisis descended from the world-class diplomatic forum it is supposed to be into something akin to a schoolyard shouting and recriminations match. Both sides of the conflict and their ardent supporters were responsible for the failure of cooler heads to prevail. One would think that a line in the sand has been drawn along the entire remaining length of the Ukrainian-Russian border, and Ukraine has asserted its sovereign right to reestablish its laws and order in the eastern Oblasts.

Those administrative centers were over run by armed Russian Spetsnaz and ethnic Russian-speaking supporters last week, but were under a Ukrainian government ultimatum issued late Thursday to withdraw within 48 hours or face armed eviction. Yesterday Ukrainian government forces made good on the government's ultimatum and began the operation of a forced eviction. As expected, urban warfighting commenced with Ukrainian security forces backed by Ukrainian military units going on the offensive, and the fog of war immediately descending and masking the action as the day progressed. A focal point emerged at Slovyansk, a small city located deep in the heart of eastern Ukraine's Donetsk Oblast. Slovyansk is situated 50 miles north of Donetsk, and 100 miles from the nearest Russian military forces massed on the border. A full-scale Russian military invasion of Ukraine could be mere hours away.

7 April 2014:  It has begun. In the three easternmost Oblasts of Ukraine bordering on Russian territory (see map below to locate: Kharkiv, Luhansk and Donetsk) civil disturbances began this morning in the same false flag type of operation as previously executed in Crimea. This tactic involves Russian Spetsnaz (Special Forces) masquerading as Ukrainian militiamen wearing sanitized camouflage uniforms and steel helmets assaulting and seizing the regional administrative government buildings and then securing them with makeshift barbed wire fencing. Once the buildings were secured the false flag operation enters its second phase with the Special Forces troops requesting Russian Federation President Putin to intervene with an invasion force to secure their independence from Ukraine. Updates as they are received.

6 April 2014: This is an update that could easily fit right in with "And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea...", but I will post it here and just link back to that item as benchmark reference material.

I awoke this morning at Oh-Four Hundred with a burning thought which was the central theme of a dream I was having just prior to waking. There is a beast rising in the in the West, his domain is being re-constructed and prepared for by a central cadre, an elite of the elite if you will. I have referred to these people as the Global Oligarchy in the past. Even the MSM has taken to using this term in recent weeks, so they are very real indeed. To simplify things I am going to abbreviate the Global Oligarchy down to the acronym GO.

The GO in control of the major powers in the West are on the rise, but at present do not have their act together enough to actually make a difference. They appear and in a very real sense are weak and lacking effective, qualified and competent leadership. This is largely due to the leftist elements which currently hold sway and the reigns of power. Most folks are likely to say at times like this, "Where's a Churchill or a Reagan when we need them?" Yes, at the moment the western stage does appear to be filled with a cast of quasi-socialist versions of Neville Chamberlain. 

But this will not always be the case. Elections are coming. Change from the leftward direction of our current governance seems inevitable and the political pendulum swing back to the right. And it seems apparent also that current events will catalyze a more purposefully driven cadre of the GO into the reigns of power. In this the new geopolitical reality of a militarily aggressive Russian Federation and rampant Islamonazi jihadism is almost made-to-order. And this is where the burning thought from my dream comes in. The GO will manage and manipulate the global situation. It has been said that while the GO leadership is playing geo-political checkers, Vladimir Putin is playing chess. I disagree with this idea to some extent. Vladimir Putin is playing chess, but the GO is now playing Risk!  Everyone wants to control the world to their advantage, and the Biblical prophetic world informs of who will succeed at this very short-term game who will be defeated and summarily run over by the dragon-worshiping GO and its Beast.

The management and manipulation might come in allowing something like this to occur: The more invincible Putin/Gog thinks he is the more he can be successfully manipulated by the rising but still hidden beast in the GO. Over the next couple of years, as the GO quickly regains its dominant edge, the emphasis will be to contain him as much as possible until the required overwhelming power to effect a roll-back is achieved. Remember, Revelation 13:4, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?"

This brings me to the  bottom line of what I awoke with this morning. Vladimir Putin/Gog of Magog might just be the very first great victim of the emergence of this beast rising up out of the sea; a beast which according to the Bible never really died. Over the past 1700 years it symbolically went from being two iron legs to a pair of feet with ten toes of world conquering iron and clay. Is it not apparent though Bible prophecy that the destruction of Gog of Magog on the mountains of Israel heralds the arrival of the Roman Antichrist and his "covenant among many"?


2 April 2014: It needs to be said here, for reference at a minimum, that the former-KGB colonel and current President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, is not and was not a Russian Communist. He is now and always has been something even worse than any Russian Communist ever dreamed of being. He is a Russian nationalist. A Russian nationalist just like the one the world is a little more familiar with who was born in Kazakhstan and named Vladimir Zhirinovsky. Vladimir Putin was born in 1952 in St. Petersburg, Russia, which is located north of northeast of Estonia and southeast of Finland, and both of which he desires to conquer and repossess for Mother Russia if given the opportunity. Unchecked Western fecklessness in the ongoing dismemberment of Ukraine will provide Vladimir Putin with the opportunity. Russian nationalists are exceptionally bombastic, but they actually do mean what they say.

1 April 2014: This second map depicts the anticipated Russian invasion routes. The extent of actual military conquest includes of all the oblasts (provinces) east of the red line. These areas will forcibly be made part of the Russian Federation. The remaining oblasts west of the red line will be forced into a type of federalized republic under Moscow's direct control. Russia will suddenly have a long border with the NATO countries of eastern Europe. A new "Iron Curtain" appears to be in the making. So much for the fictional post-Cold War "peace dividend."



UPDATE 30 March 2014:  It looks like Putin and Lavrov are enjoying themselves in an apparent game of high-stakes bait and switch with Obama and Kerry in setting autonomy demands for several Ukrainian provinces (oblasts) that the Americans cannot possibly deliver. Lacking anything of a physical nature to forestall a full-scale Russian military invasion of eastern Ukraine, it seems Kerry has capitulated to an ultimatum delivered by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in order to at least appear to be relevant in great power politics.

My best assessment is that Russian forces will soon invade along four main axes noted in the image above by red-colored wedge shapes along a broad front on the Russian-Ukrainian border from Chernihiv to Kharkiv to Luhansk and Donetsk. The Russian columns that cross the frontier at Kharkiv oblast will run head-on into crack Ukrainian formations that are fully prepared for full-scale combat operations. I do not expect the current quiet to last for long.

28 March 2014: The title of this SITREP is not the line from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar,  but one that by all current indications and warnings is about to come from a modern-day Caesar, namely, 'Tsar' Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin of the Russian Federation. Those indications and warnings has folks in the Pentagon very concerned that a military invasion by Russian forces of the rest of Ukraine may well be imminent. 

Current estimates are of 30,000 Russian troops in full battle array at key points along the length of Ukraine's eastern border with Russia, and another 50,000 reportedly in rapid movement away from their assembly points and garrisons and towards the Ukrainian border, far more troop than have ever been seen in movement for an "exercise" that simply does not exist.  To say that alarm bells are ringing in Western capitals would be a tremendous understatement.

Global SITREP C1-14: Al Qaeda Shuts Off Euphrates River; Assault on Baghdad Coming

The once mighty Euphrates River coursing through Baghdad becoming a memory of yesteryear.

15 April 2014: The Islamist Al-Qaeda forces in Iraq have shut the water off in Baghdad by closing all of the Falluja Euphrates Dam's gates yesterday.  In current foreshadows of Revelation 9 and 16, the bottom of the Euphrates River in its course through Baghdad is showing its sandy bottom very clearly in many places.

Everything south of the Falluja Dam is going to have an unbearably miserable time as the heat of the Iraqi desert is already absolutely overwhelming without water resources. Not in recent memory has the world seen a humanitarian crisis in a major world capital as could emerge from the closing of this dam. Accompanied by the arrival of full-scale war once again in Baghdad and this place could become a literal hell on earth in a very few weeks time.

Recent parades of the Islamist forces and their warfighting hardware in Falluja and Abu Ghraib (adjacent to BIAP - Baghdad Int'l Airport) are showing they have acquired as battlefield spoils quite a number of up-armored Humvees and M-113 APCs the US left behind to re-equip the Iraqi Army after the end of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) a couple of years ago. These forces are under the supreme command of the former "King of Clubs" during OIF, General Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri.

 

General Al-Duri was Saddam Hussein's top military aide and a key figure within Saddam's Ba'athist dictatorship in Iraq. He successfully eluded capture by US and Coalition forces for the entirety of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He knows things that the Iranian Shi'a overlords of Baghdad do not know.  The shutting off of the water supply is the first indication and Warning (I&W) that he intends to take Baghdad very soon and by all means at his disposal. Outside of direct Iranian military intervention, there is nothing much to stop him. At a minimum the near total depopulation of Baghdad is a near-term likelihood.

"And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea..."

Updated 14 April 2014:  Are we now seeing complete ineptitude and powerlessness from Western leaders in the face of Russian military aggression in southeastern Europe?. Has President Obama has withdrawn the United States of America as the "on-call" backbone of the NATO alliance. Is it true that when the United States of America says its military commitment is ending in theaters of allied military operations (Iraq and Afghanistan) our NATO allies will commence to scrambling for the emergency exit to bring their troops home as quickly as possible?

While these things may appear to be true to even the most seasoned observer, as has been the case in recent times, there is more to this than we realize or can see the physical manifestation of. Despite many claims to the contrary America has not abdicated its role as a global superpower. It is instead morphing into something beyond what we and our parent grew accustomed to defining as a superpower. Through the application of technological advances this military colossus is actually more powerful than it was just ten years ago. My position is that the sum of American military power combined with that of our allies will be the basis for the incredible kinetic power to fulfill the post-Harpazo prophecy of Revelation 13:4b,
“Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
Our focus is on Israel, and the role played in the achieved and future military capabilities of the Israel Defense Forces by the United States of America is nothing short of monumental. For example, not many of us are aware that Israel's vaunted Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) system currently under the final phase of its construction has been jointly funded and built with the United States. 

You may be hearing this here first. Israel's fully implemented BMD defense system will be known as 'Sword Shield,' and the final, topmost layer of this system is something straight out of former US President Ronald Reagan's vision of BMD known as the"Star Wars" missile defense system. This final layer will become fully operational next year (2015), and it is known as the Arrow-3. The Arrow-3 is much more than just a high flying missile interceptor, it is a spaceship that is fully an order of magnitude beyond anything which currently exists in the lower layers of 'Sword Shield', namely the Arrow-2, David's Shield, David's Sling and Iron Dome layers. Arrow-3 will engage enemy missiles and their warheads in the exoatmosphere, which means it is a kill vehicle that will operate outside of the earth's atmosphere. 

All of these layers will operate as one unified system, and will be interoperable with the US/NATO ship and shore-based BMD in the Middle East region. Moreover, there is a plan at this time to also extend Israel's 'Sword Shield' to cover neighboring Jordan and possibly even Egypt. This is a good idea considering what will be needed when the final engagement of Psalm 83 dust has settled.

 DDG-1000, a/k/a the extremely stealthy USS Zumwalt, was christened at the Bath Iron Works in Maine on Saturday, 12 April. There is nothing like this new United States Navy destroyer-sized warship anywhere in the world; two sister ships will soon join her at sea. The USS Zumwalt features very advanced weaponry, such as electromagnetic railguns and a virtually "self-aware" encrypted computer operating system known as TSCE that identifies any and all threats and sends the ship into battlestations. TSCE is capable of engaging all identified and confirmed threats on its own. Perhaps it is more than entirely fitting that the first commanding officer of the USS Zumwalt is Captain James A. Kirk.

In addition to this the United States of America possess a new generation of aircraft that are a technological leap beyond the famous F-117 Nighthawk, B-2 Spirit 'stealth craft.' These aircraft are not the un-piloted drones like the X-47B or RQ-180 drones which appear to be straight out of a science fiction movie; they are piloted, high-flying diamond-shaped craft (a shape known to diamond cutters as a 'trillion'). The world has never before seen anything like these craft and our enemies will not want to. Right now America appears to be walking and talking softly, but wielding a very big, powerful, stealthy and high-precision stick capable of striking anywhere on the globe within minutes. Minutes.

However, there is something far more important to pay closer attention to here than Putin's (Gog of Magog) blatant and pre-hook in the jaws aggression.  This is basic Bible Eschatology 101, and we're the generation the Lord Himself prophesied about who would see it come to pass. And we're starting to see it because as also prophesied human knowledge has increased and continues to increase at an exponential rate.

Whether we realize it or not, whether we accept it or not, we most certainly are in a combination of a perfect geo-political-military storm and the bodyguard of lies deception of a Missing-In-Action leadership scenario. This is a scenario which appears to have been deliberately created. We know it is all to be rolled up in the ultimate fulfillment of the Lord's prophetic Word. We stand on the threshold of the rise of a charismatic statesman, the ultimate peacemaker, a man with more book and field military genius than Sun Tzu, Von Clausewitz, Charlemagne, Napoleon, Hitler, Zhukov and Patton combined. A man none other than the Antichrist, a demonically-led prince of the people who destroyed Jerusalem and the temple in 70 AD. I think the stage has been given its final set for his entrance through this current global crisis.

Watch carefully as this crisis moves forward in time. An alliance of nearly 800 million people without a strong leader when one is prophesied to appear in these last days is a prophecy begging for fulfillment.

How to Hide MH370 in Plain Sight



UPDATE 14 April 2014: In the past 24 hours new information come to light which adds significant and specific gravity to the theory I proposed below, now highlighted in yellow. MH370 was deliberately turned around in a radical manner and flown back over the Malay Peninsula in a westerly direction and at a very low altitude in order to hide the aircraft from radar detection.

An article in the New Straits Times of 12 April reports that co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid on MH370 made an attempt to reconnect with his cell phone's service provider as the aircraft flew at a low altitude over Penang, Malaysia. It so happens that Penang, Malaysia is barely 5 miles from the airport I cite below south of Georgetown at Batu Maung. Yesterday's edition of the New York Daily News repeated this report, as did the British online newspapers DailyMail, Independent and Mirror with banner headlines:

Missing flight MH370 was ''thrown around like a fighter jet'' in deliberate bid to avoid radar detection

At the minimum, the theory I proposed below which based upon information I had collected at that time would have saved a lot of time, effort and cash spent by several nations sending their military forces in a futile wild goose chase effort to search an extremely remote area of the Indian Ocean when MH370 is located thousands of miles away to the northwest. There must be something of great significance at stake for so many governments around the world to engage in a full-blown charade such as this MH370 saga has become.

11 April 2014: An uncorroborated report from a Russian website known as MX.ru posted an article today claiming that according to an anonymous source within the Russian security services (think: FSB) MH370 was hijacked by persons other than the pilot/copilot and that the aircraft had "hard landing" on a rural road in Taliban-controlled area southeast of Kandahar near the the virtually lawless Pakistan-Afghanistan border.  The report claims the passengers are alive, safe and subsistence living in small groups of seven individuals per hut in this remote area; the aircraft had suffered a broken wing due to the hard landing.

As with General McInerney's very similar statements in this regard, the Afghan-Pakistan border region (south of Kandahar, and west of Quetta) that could be searched by several nations with overhead reconnaissance satellite capabilities is far smaller and more refined than the fruitless and futile distractions that have been occurring in the deep south and great depths of the Indian Ocean.

20 March 2014: Everyone has a theory about what happened to Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370. Now its my turn.

We all know according to official sources the flight computer on board MH370 was re-programmed to execute a turn from the scheduled flight path. We have been informed the aircraft rose to 40+ thousand feet, then dove to perhaps 5k feet in altitude very rapidly.  I think this maneuver was designed to mimic a sudden catastrophe and splashdown at the southern end of the Gulf of Thailand. Obviously, it worked exactly as planned. No one really knows anything right then and there, what occurred next occurred like a lightning bolt after a "everything OK, good night" last call communication. But suddenly Flight MH370 has gone dark, literally and figuratively.

The two transponders are now silent having been manually switched off. The aircraft is now on a western heading at low altitude (ground clutter of the Malay Peninsula is hiding it effectively from ATC radar). On radar the aircraft then suddenly appears to be ascending in altitude over the Malacca Straits as if it were a flight out of the airport just south of Georgetown, Malaysia (in the vicinity of Batu Maung). During this brief dark time the aircraft transponders were reprogrammed with the manipulation of a couple of switches and dials by the onboard Flight Engineer; they are turned back on, but are now squawking a completely different aircraft ID and data set. The pilots and flight engineer (or whomever has commandeered this aircraft) are now communicating on a different radio frequency also. They are mimicking a different aircraft on a different flight to a different place on the earth.

They rise in altitude and maintain a bearing on air corridor P765, flying to the west toward the Middle East and squawking the new transponder ID and data set. They are in routine air traffic control communications as a completely different flight. They have effectively and electronically hidden MH370 in plain sight.

So, about five hours or so later let's say they show up at the Maldives' Gan Island Airport for a refueling stop. The local saw them at 06:15 AM, woke the entire island up it seems. Again, the aircraft commandeers have no reason to worry about being detected on radar by anyone, they were just one of several hundred other commercial flights in the air at 0'dark thirty early that morning.  And who really checks the aircraft's registration numbers on the fuselage at 0'dark thirty?  (Nobody does except aircraft aficionados and that's usually at large airports far removed from the Maldives.)

This might be the big national security secret Uncle Sam and Israel are aware of. No one has made mention of anything like this that I am aware of. This is what I think the IC sources have told Gen. McInerney and he has repeated a couple of times now on FoxNews.  Aircraft these days, post-9/11 world that is, have far too many critical control and communication devices that can be manually turned on/off or altered in their setting by anyone with a full set of fingers and a desire to do so. This type of action is better than a stealth aircraft any day of the week, and it's more cost effective than any other multi-hundred billion dollar stealth program. This also how you get a nondescript WMD platform very close to its intended target. Pure deception. This is my theory, take it or leave it, your choice.

24 March 2014 UPDATE: About The Satellite 'Ping' Arc



Here we're going to get into (just a little bit) some of the reasoning behind my theory on where MH370 went.  My theory is partially based upon this image above. It shows both the northern and southern arc that were generated by the receipt of a single engine ping received by the Inmarsat geosynchronous satellite on the morning of 8 March 2014. The thing here is that the public was told that MH370 could have been anywhere along that several thousand mile-long arc in the microsecond the ping was received. Well, the entire arc is continuous, even though the northern and southern portions are not connected with a continuous red line in the image above. This arc represents the furthest extent which the satellite could have "seen" where the ping could have come from and that is all it represents. So, the information the public was given about this arc was only a partially truthful statement.

I happen to know that just one satellite is not enough to resolve an electromagnetic ping to a geographic location on or above the earth with any precision. A minimum total of three satellites are necessary to resolve the geographic location of such a ping. A constellation of three satellites could narrow the location of the pinging device down to an ellipse of about perhaps a half mile by one mile, or something like that. With three satellites resolving the location of the ping it would have been a pretty small area to search, that's for darn sure. I used to locate deployed foreign military assets the same way, one "ping" of their electromagnetic emitter was all it took to locate that asset with a small ellipse.

So, with just one satellite having received a single ping the area of the surface or air immediately above earth from which the ping was received by the satellites antenna would have to be in the shape of an imaginary wedge, not an arc. In the case of MH370 this imaginary wedge shape would extend from the position of the satellite over the equator (red box) to both the northern and southern ends of the southern arc. The farthest point of the arc edge would be right on the surface of the ocean, and  the satellite (box) would extend up to the maximum ceiling (altitude) for the 777 aircraft. So, to visualize this wedge I simply drew two lines on the original map, one line to the northern part of the arc and then one to the southern end of the arc. Inside this wedge shape below look what at what islands are closest to the satellite on the equator.  The Maldives.

Until some solid evidence, and lots of it, from MH370 are found I will abide with my theory on what happened to this aircraft and its passengers and crew because everything I know tells me they were on the morning of 8 March 2014 in the narrowest part of the above wedge.

The Last Generation!


"Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place." The Lord Jesus Christ, Matthew 24:34 


UPDATE 11 April 2014: Back in November I posted about doing a review of Pastor John Hagee's new book Four Blood Moons. Obviously with the pace of events since then and day-to-day research topics I did not get that task completed, and which is the reason this update is being posting in this blog item.

This coming Monday-Tuesday, March 14 will mark the first of the series of four back-to-back blood moons. An excerpt from an Email I received this morning from Bill Koening is the heart of this update:

"Four 'blood-red' total lunar eclipses will fall on first day of Passover and Sukkot in 2014 and 2015, the same back-to-back occurrences at the time periods of 1492, 1948 and 1967

The 'blood-red' total lunar eclipse that will be seen in the US on the first day of Passover, April 15, will last 77 minutes

The 'blood-red' total lunar eclipse of September 28, 2015 will be a 'super-red moon' and be seen over Jerusalem."
Given the current world situation as discussed here, nothing can summarize better than to just say, "Heads Up!"

07 April 2014: I had a rousing and raucous conversation regarding a whole slew of things that are directly connected to the end of this age, from Jesus' Olivet Discourse, a key verse of which is quoted above, to Gabriel's 70 Weeks prophecy to Daniel, to that 70th week itself.

Now it goes without saying, or at least it should, that I am convinced that the final generation of which Jesus spoke is alive right now, and we're it. I expect the Harpazo to occur any microsecond - poof, and we're gone! All of the signs are staring us square in the face. 

And this is where the conversation went to a place I had not expected it to go. I mean, never did I think a discussion about these last days would combine the first chapter of the Gospel of Matthew with the apocryphal book of 1 Enoch with The Revelation of Jesus Christ, Chapter 9. I did say this was a rousing and raucous conversation, so don't beat me up to much after reading what comes next, because I am not one to assign any great significance to the book of Enoch, but something extraordinary came out of this which also coincides with these times as i have come to understand them.

A question came up about when Abaddon/Apollyon and the horde of locust-like fallen angels were put into the abyss. We know from Revelation 9 that they're released upon the earth by an angel with a key to the abyss at the sounding of the 5th Trumpet of Judgment during the first half of the 70th Week. So when were these fallen angels put there? 

Well, it seems that time was probably back prior to Noah and the time of the Flood. There is a passage in Enoch 10:11-13 which states:

"And the Lord said unto Michael: 'Go, bind Semjaza and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves with them in all their uncleanness. And when their sons have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgement and of their consummation, till the judgement that is for ever and ever is consummated"

Seventy generations (a nice Biblical number to be sure) those fallen angels were to be bound, the last generation of which would occur during the time when God is once again dealing directly with Israel during the 70th Week, which is also the same final generation of which Jesus spoke.

This is where my Bereanism decided to investigate His word and prove this concept absolutely wrong, or so I thought because it seemed to me that there were already more years that have passed than could be accounted for in 70 generations, and Enoch was not included as a canon of the Bible.  I immediately went to Matthew 1:17 to count the generations from Abraham to Jesus. And there it is, a total of 42 generations, in groups of 14 each, from Abraham to Jesus. 

Then I took Psalm 90:10 literally and multiplied those 42 generations by 75 years, which is the middle of the 70 or 80 years the text references for a single generation, and the result was  3,150 years. To this I added the generations that have passed from Jesus to the present. Simple math in round numbers. 2014 AD - 30 AD = 1,984 years divided by 75 years and the result is rounded up 27 generations. So from Abraham to the present there have been roughly 42 plus 27 generations and - SHOCK - that equals 69 generations.

Now going back to my original stated belief that we are the final generation of which Jesus prophesied, a prophecy which is as absolute as absolute can be, is it possible that there is also a prophetic confluence between Matthew 1:17, Matthew 24:34, Revelation 9 and Enoch 10:11-13? Is there enough of the fudge factor in the very basic math that it could be off by just one generation?  I'm taking this to the Lord and leaving it with Him. But I will not be surprised if I am awoken again very early in the morning as has been the norm of late.
