The State of the Middle East 2012

26 December 2012: In these closing days of the Year of our Lord 2011 a look at the situation in the Middle East is much deserved if not imperative.

First and foremost, there is no "Palestinian state" as many a secular news commentary would have had us believe would occur in the past year. A Palestinian state did not happen. Instead what has occurred is a complete rupturing of the former status quo of false peace negotiations between Israel and the so-called 'Palestinians.' What we have at the dawn of the year 2012 is a reuniting of the terrorist-origin 'Palestinian National Authority' (PA) with the Islamofascist terrorist acronym known as HAMAS (Ḥarakat al-Muqāwamah al-ʾIslāmiyyah, a/k/a Islamic Resistance Movement), a group born of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Psalm 83 will soon reach its final fulfillment precisely as foretold by Asaph.

In Egypt, as in other Islamic Arab nations formerly ruled by dictators, the military remnant of the Mubarak regime still tenuously holds power in the face of renewed uprisings by the Muslim fundamentalist masses led by the al-Ikhwan al-Muslimeen (Muslim Brotherhood) and the Salafists in their respective strongholds around the country and in Cairo. In the Egyptian Sinai the overt rise in the past few weeks of the Al Qaeda-linked terrorist group "Ansar al-Jihad in the Sinai Peninsula" since the fall of Mubarak was inevitable and led to the attacks in Eilat, Israel as well as the repeated attacks on the Egypt-Israel gas pipeline. This newly emergent terrorist organization could not exist without the tacit support and/or involvement of HAMAS, Egypt, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Islamic Republic of Sudan (Ezekiel's Kuwsh, as noted here). These Islamic terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula will likely fulfill the role of Amalek per Psalm 83 verse 7.

Then there's the basket case of Bashar al-Assad's Syria, ruled by a minority Shi'a faction of Alawites it remains in the throes of a Sunni Islamonazi insurrection very much like that which just toppled the dictatorial regime of Muamar Ghadaffi in Libya. This internal Syrian affair has drawn in both Turkey and Iran on opposite sides of the conflict, and placed Israeli-Turkish relations in the odd position of being simultaneously belligerent and non-belligerent with respect to each others national interests. Clearly Ezekiel 38/39 is not an imminent or next-in-line prophetic fulfillment as Isaiah 17, Psalm 83 and Joshua 13:1-7 all appear to be.

And leading the pack in terms of global Islamic terrorism, Middle Eastern destabilization and war-mongering is the truly apocalyptic-minded regime of mullahs in the Islamic Republic of Iran. In this aspect we await the fulfillment of Jeremiah 49:34-39. As this post is being written Iran is directly challenging the United States 5th Fleet and NATO's naval forces in the area east of the Strait of Hormuz in the Arabian Sea southward to the entrance to the Red Sea. Without question the greatest threat to world peace as we enter the year 2012 comes from the area of the world where the deception of Islam holds millions of people captive to its pseudo-religious dictates.

These 'End Times' are not going to unfold according to the will of a Satanically-inspired false moon god, but the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and that will be the focus of this Eschatology Today forum as we go forward into the year 2012 and await the promised blessed hope of the Harpazo.

The Psalm 83 War: The Final Phase

18 December 2010: Now it begins. Now that the last American combat troops have departed from Iraq and crossed the common border back in to Kuwait the nation of Iraq can resume its role in the war of attempted extermination of Israel as prophesied for these last days some 3,000 years ago by the Psalmist Asaph - the Psalm 83 War. Now the way is clear for the final and literal fulfillment of Psalm 83, and with particular respect to verse 8 (emphasis added).

1Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

2For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

3They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

4They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

5For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

6The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

7Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

This specific aspect of the Psalm 83 prophecy, the military linking of Assur (Iraq) and the children of Lot (Jordan) has been one of uncertainty for the past couple of years. My interpretation has been that it is direct reference to the assistance rendered to the Sunni Arab armies by Iraq in the wars of 1948, 1967 and 1973.

Then, for the past 20 years, Iraq had not been in a position to fulfill this role as it again is this very day - a position of being of militarily capable of assistance to Jordan and the Sunni Arab allies seeking to complete the military destruction of Israel. This news was first reported in English-language Arab media about one moth ago:

Jordan, Iraq to step up military cooperation ahead of US pullout


AMMAN: The commanders of the Jordanian and Iraqi armies on Tuesday expressed desire in boosting bilateral military cooperation as the US troops prepared to leave the neighboring violence-torn country, according to the official Petra news agency.

The remarks came during a meeting between a visiting high-level Iraqi military delegation headed by the Chief of Staff Gen. Babakr Zibari and a Jordanian delegation headed by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mishaal Al-Zaben.

Zibari and Al-Zaben "praised the he distinguished standard of cooperation between the armed forces in the two brotherly countries and expressed desire in boosting this cooperation in all military spheres and in such a manner that fulfils the aspirations of the two armies", Petra said.

The talks were attended by the commanding general of the US forces in Iraq Lloyd J. Austin III, who has warned that violence could grow in Iraq after the US withdrawal.

The visit by the commanders of the Iraqi army and the US troops in Iraq stirred speculation that Jordan could be tasked again with the training of Iraqi troops after the withdrawal of US forces from Iraq by the end of the year.

The Jordanian Army trained tens of thousands of Iraqi troops and policemen after the 2003 US-led invasion of the neighboring Arab country that toppled the regime of President Saddam Hussein.

The training of the Iraqi Army is emerging as an extremely sensitive issue after Iraqi politicians voiced reservations over keeping US personnel to train Iraqi soldiers beyond 2011.

The government of Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki also reportedly turned down an Iranian offer to train the Iraqi Army.

So, here we are, yet again on the cutting edge of prophetic fulfillment.

The War on Iran

06 December 2011: The battlefield has been prepared and the war on Iran is on. November 12, 2011 is the day I believe this war transitioned from a covert action cyberwar (Stuxnet, Duqu trojans) to an overt action conventional war, which itself is an escalation in real kinetic terms, in a final attempt to preempt a regional unconventional war featuring missile-borne weapons of mass destruction.

November 12 was the day when, as seen in the image above, two United States Navy Nimitz-class nuclear-armed super-carriers, USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) and USS George H. W. Bush (CVN 77) steamed in unprecedented fashion side-by-side into the Strait of Hormuz choke-point at the entrance to the Persian Gulf. American aircraft carriers have transited the Strait of Hormuz hundreds of times over the past 32 years, but never in such a bristling array as this. The message to Tehran and Qom was unambiguous as unambiguous gets.

November 12 was also the day that a massive explosion all but destroyed the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps solid-fuel missile production and testing complex at Al-Ghadeer. The Institute for Science and International Security posted a .pdf report on its website on 28 November that included before and after satellite imagery detailing the near leveling of the base and explaining why the funeral of the IRGC's missile chief, Major General Hassan Moghaddam and 36 other IRGC officers, was conducted in a closed casket procession. So powerful was the detonation that those caskets might well have been empty and of symbolic value only. Many of the production and testing buildings on the base were simply vaporized.

Another explosion at an IRGC weapons depot on the same day not far away also caused massive damage and death to the IRGC missile corps. Recall that a similar explosion occurred at the IRGC's Imam Ali Air Base Shahab-3 missile storage site in Lorestan Province a year earlier. And ten days later a secret weapons depot jointly run by the IRGC and Hezbollah in an area allegedly under the control of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) was blown up not far from the coastal city of Tyre. That weapons depot was clearly in violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701, but, as usual, nary a word has been said about that minor detail.

Since November 12th the Iranian government has dispatched its Basij street thug militia, the same militia which beat down, imprisoned and murdered hundreds of Iranian student protestors not so long ago, to ransack and burn the Embassy of the United Kingdom and its diplomatic residences. Ambassadors were recalled, staff was sent home, offices were shuttered, you know, all the things that happen as war a between the countries is erupting. Christians who know their Bible should also realize how prophetic all of this is.

Israel is a Nuclear Superpower

2 November 2011: Succinct and to the point. Israel has apparently tested an upgraded version of its Jericho III missile this morning. The Jericho III, a/k/a the YA-4, is a full-fledged ICBM capable of putting a 1,650 lb nuclear warhead onto a target 4,350 miles away. A slightly smaller warhead or pair of warheads could be delivered via low earth orbit anywhere on the planet. The Jericho III is also road mobile.

Israel is a nuclear superpower.

Focus on Ezekiel 38:5 - Kuwsh

UPDATE 07 September 2011: An enlargeable map of the world circa the 10th century BC that is also quite useful in locating ancient Kuwsh can be accessed HERE.

2 September 2011: In this post I hope to provide some Scripture-based insight to correct a long-held misidentification of the land of Cush. This is an important distinction that directly relates to current events and what will shortly transpire, I believe, following the fulfillment of Psalm 83 and just prior to the commencement of Daniel's 70th Week.

To begin with, who was Ezekiel? Ezekiel was born in Jerusalem around 622 BC, he was a Kohanim Judean priest of Yahweh and was His prophet. Ezekiel was inspired directly from God. Therefore, Ezekiel directly and infallibly spoke the LORD God's prophetic word.

What we know as the country of Ethiopia is not mentioned whatsoever in Ezekiel 38:5. I believe the naming of Ethiopia in this context is a long-standing interpretive and eschatological error.

Ezekiel 38:5, written in the original Hebrew, is as follows: "Persia (Parac - pronounced Pah-rass), Cush (Kuwsh - pronounced Koosh), and Put (Puwt - pronounced Poot), with them, All of them [with] shield and helmet."

These peoples are, firstly, the original eastern Persians, as opposed to the Elamites who lived just east of Mesopotamia, or the Medes who lived to the north. We also have the Puwt who are the North Africans to the west of Egypt all the way to present day Mauritania. Yet it is the Kuwsh who are our focus here, and they are the direct descendants of Ham's son Kuwsh, the grandson of Noah. Isaiah 18:1 tells us where they lived "along the rivers of Kuwsh" which are located in the modern-day nation of Sudan directly to the south of Egypt. The "rivers of Kuwsh" are: (see map below)

1.) the Nile River,
2.) the White Nile River
3.) the Blue Nile River

Again, at present time there is a direct anti-Israel military connection between Iran (Persia), Sudan (Kuwsh) and the newly emergent Islamists of Libya (Puwt), Tunisia and Algeria (North Africans). We don't have to wait for anything to occur in Ethiopia as the southern branch of Gog's military alliance already exists today.

In ancient times this land was also known as Nubia (as seen in the map at the top) and in many respects was as advanced as the Egyptians of that ancient era. The Nubians were allies of Israel as proven by Isaiah 37:9-38 and 2 Kings 19 which both are a record concerning the invading Assyrians and the alliance between King Hezekiah and King Tirhakah of Kuwsh.

This is the ancient land of Kuwsh (Cush) identified in Ezekiel 38/39.

UPDATE 5 September 2011: In these last days is it not an obvious manifestation of the LORD God's Divine will that this land has been divided into two distinct nations? Of course it is, but how many have made note of this occurrence? It came about after the course of events of the past 55 years, with active armed rebellion and resistance between 1955 and 1972, and from 1983 to 2005. The LORD's will became manifest just about two months ago, on 9 July 2011.

The northern part of Kuwsh, a land divided by the three rivers identified above, is an Arab Islamic-ruled abomination which fervently seeks Israel's destruction, as mentioned above and ultimately to be manifest in the prophecy of Ezekiel 38/39.

The southern part, now known as "South Sudan" with a population of over 8 million souls and its capital city further to the south at Juba, is a fervent supporter of Israel. This nation is largely the product of Christian missionaries - Christian soldiers - who over the past century of time literally executed the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

And now another relevant and obvious question for us all to consider:

1.) Does this new fact in our world not have a direct link and provide new insights to the prophecy of Isaiah 18? Is the harvest spoken of in Isaiah 18:3-5 a reference to the Harpazo/Rapture?

The TEN (seen in red)

"Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom (hereinafter called "the Ten")..."

14 August 2011: As detailed on 5 August 2011 by Hal Lindsey in his MUST SEE 28:30 long video, the above quote is taken directly from a .pdf found on the Western European Union website. "WEO Council Decision at 10" is found on page 2, item number three under the heading "AGREED THE FOLLOWING."

Once again, nothing in English (or French for that matter) makes utterly false the non-Spirit inspired claims of the so-called Eastern Leg-Islamic Antichrist (EL-IA) proponents (i.e. Walid Shoebat and Joel Richardson among others) more than this .pdf document because it absolutely confirms the Word of God from the prophet Daniel and the Revelation of Jesus Christ, both of which we know are ultimately from Almighty God Himself.

Once Again, Thank You Hal Lindsey!

Crude Oil: A Renewable Resource

UPDATE 06 July 2011: Here's a link to a video from Professor Terry J. Lovell and the PatriotNetworkAZ that makes the perfect update for this topic: Another "You Lied" moment

18 May 2011: It's time for a quick change of pace from the usual Eschatology Today fare. I've been hearing a lot about crude oil lately as I've become an avid listener of XM radio during my morning daily commute. For the most part what I've been hearing about crude oil is diametrically opposed to what I have ever thought I knew or was taught (read: was conditioned to believe by the media and other people) about oil. Things like "crude oil is a fossil fuel" and "crude oil is a non-renewable resource." I remember as a kid the local Sinclair Oil Corporation gas station had a big green brontosaurus as its logo, meaning that oil and gasoline came from long ago dead dinosaurs. I remember thinking, "Ah ha, so that's why God put them giant lizards on the earth!" Wrong, kiddo. Not enough years for Dino to die and turn into oil found at depths deep beneath the earth's surface where there are no fossils, neither plants or animals. So, long story short, after doing some due diligence research on the subject I am very strongly inclined to say at this point that all that stuff I thought I knew or learned (again, conditioned to believe) is a bunch of capital-H Hooey.

I could prattle on about what what I found in my research, but since this is just a quick break from our usual menu I'm instead going to copy verbatim for your reading enjoyment and potential increase in knowledge the crux of an article written back on 10 August 2004 by a man named Barry Ashby on the IndustrialHeating.Com website, entitled "Federal Triangle: Petroleum—A Renewable Resource?"

"It seems many geologists are being petty, arguing over facts that have yet to yield answers about crude oil. The mid July 04 Hedberg Conference by American Association of Petroleum Geologists again discussed biogenic versus abiotic origins of hydrocarbons, an interesting and very significant industrial issue. At current rates of world consumption (over 26 billion barrels a year) and with 80% coming from fields discovered before 1973, end of supply is always a concern because proven reserves are only 1,213 billion barrels, 75% of which is in 370 fields worldwide. It is projected that production rates will peak in 2037 unless new reserves are found and sharply decline thereafter.

Then along comes Dr. Thomas Gold, professor emeritus at Cornell and an astronomer no less, who says not to worry. Petroleum is a renewable resource made deep in the earth by inorganic processes (abiotic — an idea first proposed by Russian scientist Mikhail Lomonosov in 1757 who called it “rock oil”) and does not come from piles of dead dinosaurs and fermenting leaves (biogenic). The conventional wisdom of petroleum geologists has been offended and most of them are steamed.

Crude oil is a primordial soup but not of biologic origin, says Dr. Gold, forming under great heat and pressure in the deep biosphere and hydrocarbons we now know are common on planetary bodies. The abiotic theory is that methane, the simplest carbon molecule (CH4) we call natural gas, is formed from carbonate rocks and water at depths of 5 to 20 miles, at pressures of 30 to 45 kilobars (441 to 662 ksi), and temperatures approaching 800˚C (1470˚F). Then the methane condenses into heavier hydrocarbons we call petroleum, collecting in subterranean pools. Most geologists agree so far; you can make oil artificially with these conditions. However the abiotic theory as a natural event is different, supported by these facts:

  • High oil quantities are found in locations where assays of prehistoric life
    are not sufficient to have produced the existing reserve.

  • Oil produced from varying depths from the same field has the same chemistry
    and does not vary as the fossil life changes with depth at these same spots.

  • Every oil field outgases helium, which does not appear in meaningful
    quantity in any other venue, and is a thoroughly stable, inorganic gas that is a
    product of radiologic decay of rocks appearing at great depths within the Earth

    The abiotic theory is rejected by geologists who cite these facts:

      Commercial oil fields produce a low content of C-13 isotope in molecules because plant life has available and absorbs the common C-12 isotope;deposits of deep methane have a higher content of the less common (1% of all carbon) C-13 atom. Petroleum deposits occur mainly in horizontal, near-surface reservoirs.

    Actually, it may well be that both protagonists for their cause (antagonists if you prefer) have strength in their arguments. It is known that hydrocarbons migrate within the Earth’s crust as witnessed by production at Eugene Island in the Gulf of Mexico 80 miles south of Louisiana. In 1973 when discovered, it produced 15,000 bpd but dwindled to 4,000 bpd by 1989. Inexplicably it resumed output to 13,000 bpd but has confounded geologists because current production is of a significantly different (newer) geologic age than yesteryear. Abiogenic proponents say it is being refilled from beneath the formation and that as oil migrates upward; it is attacked by bacteria that alter its appearance. It is known that such bacteria (hyperthermophiles) live at great depths, recorded in Alaska at 4.2 km and in Sweden at 5.2 km (2.6 and 3.2 miles) below the surface.

    There has been a long history of this argument. Mendeleyev, who discovered the Periodic table, said in 1870 the same thing offered in 1962 by Sir Robert Robinson of Britain’s Royal Society that “petroleum is a primordial hydrocarbon to which biological products have been added.” That’s quitesimilar to what Dr. Gold is touting and is of enormous importance due to geopolitics and economic impacts of the highly inelastic supply and demand system existing in the world. If abiotic petroleum formation is true, how much reserve really exists on Earth, and more importantly, is human consumption depleting supply faster than replenishment?"

Oil, like the earth and the entire universe for that matter, was Created by God. And as with all things Created by God there have been really grandiose deceptions foisted upon mankind by Lucifer to deceive us into believing things which quite simply are not true. All manner of things, from A to Z, including natural resources. Lucifer even has used generally nice and trustworthy people relay these untruths to us from a very early age. Think of this the next time you fill 'er up and see red because of the price we sheeple are paying these days to feed our commuter vehicles their life's blood. Fuel for thought.

Reality Check for the Bride of Christ in the Face of Imminent Prophetic Fulfillment

3 July 2011: We, the Bride of Christ, are witnesses to the stage-setting and character introductions of the literal and final fulfillment of 'last days' prophecy. This what I believe we can take away from the seemingly fearful current and imminent future events discussed in the blog item below this one. We MUST use this information as a part of our witness for Christ. I believe the many detailed prophecies have been given us for this very purpose.

Looked at another way, we know about the imminent future events in detail and in advance. How much more of an advantage do we require to win over souls for our Lord? As an example of this type of an advantage, consider how lopsided the final scores of an entire season of football games would be if our team had all of the other team's playbooks? Dare I say such a team would finish the season UNDEFEATED?

This is the situation the Bride of Christ finds itself in right here, right now, today! This is our "reality check" just prior to the standing up of Michael the Archangel to execute his Divinely appointed last days mission.

So, how busy are we in completing our Divinely appointed mission?

About Those Iranian Missile Tests

UPDATE 2: 3 July 2011: An article authored by James Lewis entitled “Obama’s Final Solution” published this morning at AmericanThinker.com will serve readers of this assessment very well as a “big picture” presentation which should leave no doubt, if doubt we possible given the content of the original article and the first update, about the soon-to-be-realized fact that a major Middle Eastern war between Israel and its Arab and Persian enemies is precisely the objective of the current administration occupying the White House. In driving toward this objective the White House is risking anything and everything, including the rampant use of real weapons of mass destruction and the resultant deaths of tens of thousands, in order to achieve the destruction of the State of Israel.

The danger posed to what is left of this Constitutional Republic by this administration’s agenda cannot be emphasized strongly enough. It is up to those real, natural born American patriots in postions of power and responsibility to execute the requirements of their Oath’s to the Constitution; to do all within their ability to preempt this agenda before it is too late. Short of making the ultimate sacrifice as thousands of our soldiers have voluntarily done in the past 9 years, it is now YOU who owe nothing less to the current and succeeding generation of We The People. So help you God.

UPDATE: 2 July 2011: It has come to my attention over the past 24 hours that the series of recent resignations of high Israel government officials were all directly related to the issues addressed in my assessment on the nearly completed Iranian development of nuclear weapons and the ballistic missile systems designed specifically to place those weapons on American and Israeli targets.

Yesterday, the day after my assessment was posted here, FrontPageMag.Com published a key MUST READ article by P. David Hornik entitled “Israel’s Palace War Over Iran” which began with this sentence: “Over the past few months, much of Israel’s top security brass has stepped down—the chief of staff (Gabi Ashkenazi), the head of military intelligence (Amos Yadlin), the head of the Mossad (Meir Dagan), and the head of the Shin Bet or internal security (Yuval Diskin).” I absolutely agree with Mr. Hornik on the real reasons for these resignations: all of the officials were sent packing for their failure to execute their responsibilities in crafting a credible Israeli military response to remove the Iranian nuclear threat should the US and other international powers fail to resolve that issue to the benefit of the entire world.

Mr. Hornik’s article also prominently cited another key MUST READ article confirming the reasons for these resignations by Aluf Benn in his Haaretz-published article (Israel’s defense chiefs failed in deterring Iran). According to Mr. Benn, the above named former Israeli officials “embarked on a foiling action, not against Iran but against” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Barak.

That would be like their American counterparts acting against our president and his secretary of state regarding a coherent deterrent policy on Iranian nuclear development. Interestingly enough, we also have some key resignations going on. And Iran still has their nukes and the missiles with which to deliver them. Hopefully in the future there will be quality historians around to leave a accurate records of these events from which future generations might learn.

30 June 2011: For quite a few years now I’ve watched and kept track of OSINT reports regarding Iran’s development-in-depth of numerous ballistic missile systems. Just for reference sake you can read them HERE, HERE and HERE.

My assessment has always held that there is only one purpose for such development – placing a nuclear warhead onto a distant target. Recently the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) told us point blank what has always been assumed, that being the Iranian warhead’s targets are American military bases and Israeli cities. The difference between my earlier assessments on Iranian nuclear missile capabilities then and now is that now iran can launch these missiles from hardened siloes with little or no warning. Within a day of the IRGC announcement British Foreign Secretary William Hague publicly confirmed the secret nature of the testing as well as the testing in the ongoing “Great Prophet Six” exercises the IRGC is executing.

Have you heard or read anything of a similar nature coming from Foreign Secretary Hague’s American counterpart, SECSTATE Hillary Clinton? How about a word from her boss in the White House? That’s right, you’ve gotten exactly zero, zip, nada from them about this. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find a single American corporate news article on this subject or Foreign Secretary Hague’s accusations. Instead the White House and the U.S. State Department have been downplaying the accelerating Iranian regime’s progress in the field of precipitating a non-existent al-Mahdi-hastening Armageddon scenario. Yet at her SECSTATE swearing in ceremony Hillary Clinton was keen to lecture those in attendance how “we’re going to have to be smarter about how we do what we must for our country.”

As for Barry Soetoro, his most recent State of the Union address did not have so much as a single mention of the Iranian threat. Iraq, Al Qaeda, Afghanistan, Pakistan and North Korea all merited a mention, but not Iran. My best guess is that he doesn’t see the Iranian threat as a problem in need of fixing. Well, so much for Barry’s defeating “determined enemies wherever they are” comment in that address. I guess Iran is one very real threat that Barry has missed altogether. Would somebody please bring his morning briefer up to speed. Thanks in advance.

Is Ezekiel's Army About to Face Off with the Arabs?

by Bill Salus

So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army. (Ezekiel 37:10, nkjv).

21 May 2011: Some bible teachers, like Joel Rosenberg and me, believe Ezekiel 37:10 describes an army, whereas others like Dr. Thomas Ice and Ray Gano believe Ezekiel is predicting a great multitude or host will emerge out of his prophetic "Dry Bones" vision.

(Which is it? click here to read more...)

30 May 2011: The follow-up article to the above is Bill Salus' most recent...

Is the Arab Spring setting up for a Winter War?

In a last ditch effort to politically broker a final Arab state called Palestine, U.S. President Barrack Obama showed his Pro-Palestinian trump card. In May, 2011, with his left hand clenched in a seeming show of American solidarity for Israel’s security, Obama snuck his right hand into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cookie jar, and was caught red-handed attempting to pick-pocket Israel’s most prized possession; their homeland.

Obama's presidential play prompted Netanyahu to push his poker chips forward, lay all his cards on the table, and shout, "
ISRAEL'S ALL IN!" Netanyahu seized the opportunity to call the U.S. President's and Palestinians bluff. The King of Israel revealed his Royal Flush, leaving little wiggle room for future Mideast peace negotiations.

His strict laundry list of conditions hit at the heart of every Palestinian contention. To the Palestinians, this was nothing short of a declaration of war. (

The False Teaching of Harold Camping

15 May 2011: There are a whole of lot Christians, followers of the oft repeated false teaching of Harold Camping, who are in for a rude and very embarassing day of awakening in church come Sunday, 22 May, 20011 and the day on Monday morning when they will have to endure the ridicule of the still disbelieving world, from family members to co-workers to perfect strangers. They will have to try to stand tall with their fellow brethren who as much as told them so, but who will be there to lovingly set them back on the correct hermeneutical path of prophetic teaching regarding these last days.

The above billboard about says it all concerning the reason why the day after May 21 will turn out the way it will for these deceived brethren. They have listened and acted upon to the false teaching of Harold Camping when they should have listened to the Holy Spirit as they read the Word of God. All of this could have been avoided. More importantly, the damage inflicted upon the Bride of Christ as a whole and to Good News of His soon coming again could all have been avoided.

The lessons willingly ignored by these Christians was simple as simple can be:

1.) They did not beware themselves of the false prophet Harold Camping (Matthew 7:15).

2.) They failed to heed the words of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself: "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only."(Matthew 24:36)

That's all I have to say about this unfortunate, completely avoidable situation. If necessary, after May 21 has come and gone, I'll be there for those who honestly need assistance coping.

Arguments Against a Muslim Antichrist

by Bill Salus

Troublesome times, filled with stage setting prophetic signs, have many concerned they live in the last generation. As such, many eschatologists field questions about the Antichrist whose reign of terror dominates the final generation.

Topping the list is the curiosity over his origin. Will he be a Jew, Gentile, Muslim, or perhaps a Supernatural being like the Nepilim in the ancient Days of Noah?

According to the majority consensus of several experts interviewed by Dr. David Reagan of Lamb and Lion Ministries, there doesn’t seem to be a Jewish bone in Antichrist’s body. Their views can be watched here or read in my blog article called “Is the Antichrist, a Jew, Gentile, or Supernatural.”

Additionally, those pondering the supernatural origins of the Antichrist comprise a minority thus far. In fact, the first time I had heard about it was in a radio interview I hosted with end time’s expert and co-founder of Rapture Ready, Terry James. During the Prophecy Update radio program Terry made a compelling argument for a supernatural Antichrist. This fascinating interview took place on November of 2010 and can be heard here.

However, through a process of deductive reasoning, it appears most scholars believe the Antichrist is either a non-Muslim Gentile or a Muslim Gentile. Traditional teaching points to a non-Muslim Gentile Antichrist rising out of the Revived Roman Empire. Advocates of this view point to Daniel 9:26, which says this crazed individual will be a Roman. The prophecy declares the Antichrist will come out of the people who destroyed Jerusalem and the Jewish Temple, an event fulfilled in 70 A.D. by the Roman Empire.

In January 2009 I wrote an article called “Does Daniel Debunk the Assyrian Antichrist.” This article hit a sensitive nerve among those interested in the origin of the Antichrist and prompted 143 blogs, including many from author Joel Richardson of the bestselling book “The Islamic Antichrist.”

Recently, I was asked by Dr. David Reagan to pen my position on several questions related to the Antichrist. One of them was regarded with the potential for a Muslim Antichrist. Some of the best teaching on this controversial subject is written in a transcript entitled, “The Muslim Antichrist Theory and Evaluation” by Dr. David Reagan.

Dr. Reagan's excellent article points out that Islamic eschatology also has an Antichrist called the Dajjal and that similarities between the Islamic Dajjal and biblical Antichrist exist. Muslim Antichrist advocates often use these similarities to argue their point. However, any similarities between the two are inadmissible due to the fact that Islamic scribes had several thousand years of previously recorded biblical prophecy available to them, which enabled them to fabricate the features of the Dajjal.

Summarized below are a few of the reasons I don’t believe the Antichrist will be a Muslim.

To hypothesize the Antichrist could be a Muslim, which is a relatively new paradigm shift in thinking, ignores the prophetic ramifications of Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38, and the first four seal judgments of Revelation 6:1-7. Prophetic insights written in Isralestine, The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East, suggest Psalm 83, and possibly Ezekiel 38, appears to occur before the Antichrist rides in on the world stage as the "white horseman" of the apocalypse in Rev. 6:1.

As pointed out in the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 arguments below, the fulfillment of both prophecies will negatively impact the religion of Islam. Therefore, by the time the Antichrist emerges, Islam should be undergoing a deepening crisis in faith thereby hindering any Muslim's bid for world worship.

The Psalm 83 Argument

Psalm 83 is a confederation of ten predominately Muslim populations that will invade Israel to reclaim Palestine for the Palestinians. They will be decisively defeated by the Israeli Defense Forces as per Ezekiel 25:14, Obadiah 1:18, and elsewhere. This defeat will serve as a severe “punch to the gut” of the Islamic faith. Muslims worldwide will be shocked to witness today’s tiny Israel militarily overpower their present surrounding Arab foes.

The Ezekiel 38 Argument

In the aftermath of the I.D.F. victory of Psalm 83, the predominately Muslim nine-member coalition of invaders of Ezekiel 38:1-6 will make their bid to invade Israel to capture Israeli plunder and booty. We are informed in Ezekiel 38:18 - 39:6 that the invaders will meet their doom via the divine doings of the Lord rather than the I.D.F. The defeat of the Ezekiel invaders will be nothing less than a powerful “uppercut to the jawbone” of Islam.

In the aftermath of these two victories the downward slide of Allah will be observable as Muslims worldwide will become increasingly disenchanted with their Islamic faith. This is already occurring. Fueled by the Internet and social networks, many Mideast Muslim youths are looking beyond the confines of seventh-century Islam and state censored media for a brighter democratic future. Allah’s downward slide partially fulfills the prophecy in Zephaniah 2:11, which foretells the fall of all false gods.

These two Pre-Tribulation prophetic events, Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38, should assure that Islam is both crippled and compromised by the time the predicted wars of Revelation 6 occur. These apocalyptic wars predict indiscriminate death and destruction worldwide putting Islam well within its sites. As a result, Islam should be “knocked out for the final ten – count” before the midpoint of the seven – year tribulation arrives.

In addition to the objections identified above, 2 Thessalonians 2:4 declares the Antichrist will someday have the audacity to declare himself as god. Such a declaration flies in the face of Islam’s primary tenet that “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is his prophet or messenger.” According to the prophecy the Antichrist 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.

Once the Antichrist fulfills the 2 Thess. 2:4 prophecy a fatwa would certainly be issued to assassinate him if he was a Muslim. When this fact is pointed out to Muslim Antichrist advocates they often point out that Revelation 13:3-4 and Rev. 17:7-11 suggests the Antichrist will die. But, they argue these passages also suggest he will subsequently resurrect to rule the world.

The logical question then arises, "Wouldn't that prompt the issuance of another fatwa against his life?" In order to avoid an unending vicious cycle of fatwa, death, and resurrection they speculate that fatwa’s calling for the Antichrist’s death ultimately cease to be issued. Such a conclusion is difficult to support scripturally. Thus, the 2 Thessalonians argument also opposes the Muslim Antichrist theory.

Furthermore, attempts to identify a Muslim Antichrist often require historical revisionism and sensational newspaper exegesis. Historical revisionism occurs when Muslim Antichrist advocates discount Roman responsibility over the destruction of Jerusalem and the Jewish Temple. They teach Arab conscripts, even though they were subservient under Roman rule, did the dirty work. This argument is highly suspect and easily refuted. (Refer to the blogs here).

Newspaper exegesis occurs by focusing on Islam’s adversarial role in current Mideast events rather than appropriately ordering the Israeli war prophecies described in Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38. Muslim Antichrist advocates attempt to give Islam longevity by conveniently incorporating these prophecies into the campaign of Armageddon.

It is commonly taught that the final Armageddon battle, whereby the Antichrist and his armies are defeated, occurs during the latter part of the seven-year Tribulation period. Many, including myself, believe the Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 prophecies occur independently from, and in advance of, the final Armageddon battle. Therefore as stated above, before Armageddon comes Islam will be “knocked out for the ten – count

It appears humanity is about to witness the fulfillment of Psalm 83 followed by Ezekiel 38. These two powerful prophetic events should render Islamic eschatology, which has no Godly inspiration apart from that clumsily plagiarized out of the bible, useless. There will be a biblical Antichrist and he may be alive today. But, it is highly doubtful that he will be a Muslim.

Is America to be Judged Prior to Daniel's 70th Week?

Resurrection Day, 24 April 2011: Since virtually all teachers agree that the United States of America is not specifically mentioned in the literal Word of God, then where, pray tell, is the literal judgment and destruction of the United States of America taught by so many of these same prophecy teachers prophetically foretold in His Word?

The prophetic fact-of-the-matter is that such a unique judgment upon the USA is not foretold in the Word of God.

The obvious lack of a specified Divine judgment upon the United States of America is therefore a man-made judgment; an eisegetically-derived judgment. And as such it is an extremely incongruous form of Divine judgment when so many Arab Muslim nations have been actively at war against the reborn Israel and have facilitated Israel's ever increasing terrorization since her re-birth 63 years ago. The judgments coming upon these nations are clearly foretold in numerous chapters written by the numerous Divinely inspired prophets of God -- Asaph (Psalm 83), Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel (Chapters 38/39), just to name a few.

Or how about when applied to the bulk of western nations, particularly of Europe and the Western Hemisphere where modern-day anti-Israel sentiment and its precursor holocaust enabling anti-Semitism were nurtured and have existed for AT LEAST SIX CENTURIES along with abortion-on-demand, homosexual and all manner of other sexual perversions, as well as a civilization-wide turning away from God and the Lord Jesus Christ along with every manifestation of Satanically inspired humanism. All of these sins have been nurtured as inherited by the West as a whole through the absorption of the Babylonian, Persian, Greek and ultimately decadent Roman norms of human civilization.

Yet many teachers tell us that the United States of America is to be uniquely singled out for Divine judgment and destruction prior to Daniel's 70th Week. Is this correct?

No, and on the contrary, I utterly reject such an interpretation notion as this. The last empire mentioned in the Bible is the Roman Empire. Every nation in Europe and the Western Hemisphere is a direct descendent of the Roman Empire and its peoples.

So the fact that the US is not specifically mentioned in the Bible is meaningless in my view. The US is in the Bible, but under a different point of reference. Is nuclear-armed France mentioned in the Bible? How about nuclear-armed United Kingdom? Spain? Portugal? Canada? Brazil? Any of them?

No. Not one is mentioned.

But what is symbolically mentioned are the "iron and clay" ten toes of Nebuchadnezzar's dream statue given to to the prophet Daniel by God in a night vision. Those toes are the representation of the descendent nations of the Roman Empire. Moreover, what is symbolically represented by the prophet Ezekiel are the Western seafaring nations of commerce referred to as Tarshish and "all their young lions" (former colonies).

I do not believe the US is going to be uniquely judged and destroyed. I believe that those Bible eschatologists who've been teaching that the US is doomed to destruction are in error and have completely missed a key prophetic point.

I believe the US will be an integral, if not indispensible, part of the Beast Empire, and NATO will be the overwhelming army of the Beast. Without the incredible military power of the US the military power of NATO is nothing special. No nation on the earth has the military command and control (C2) capabilities, much less the command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, sensors and reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities that the US possesses. Zippo, nada, none. We're forward deployed on bases in dozens of countries all over the planet, our residual combat power is peerless, and we're actively fighting wars or low intensity conflicts simultaneously in several places hundreds to thousands of miles distant at this very moment. This is the kind of military power that will manifest itself in the literal fulfillment of this key prophecy during Daniel's 70th Week:

Daniel 11:40-44

"At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon. He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels. But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many."

That's a whole lot of conquering. It is conquest on a truly global scale. And it all happens within a very short span of time.

Therefore, I believe the United States of America will be judged when all of the other nations of the beast empire are judged at the appointed time as God Almighty informed the prophet Daniel in a night vision.

The time of the coming judgment of these nations of the beast empire is found in Daniel 2:28a (emphasis added):

"But there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days.

The judgment itself is foretold in Daniel 2:31-35

“You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

... along with the God-given interpretation in Daniel 2, verses 36 through 45:

“This is the dream. Now we will tell the interpretation of it before the king. You, O king, are a king of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory; and wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all—you are this head of gold. But after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another, a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.”

This is the judgment upon the nations at the conclusion of Daniel's 70th Week by none other than the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.

This prophecy of judgment upon the nations is repeated in even greater detail in The Revelation of Jesus Christ, chapters 18 and 19. The source of this prophecy is the same as that given to Daniel... Almighty God.

Read the words of this prophecy and be blessed as declared in Revelation 1:1-3, and pay heed that no one add to or take away from these words per the explicit warning of Revelation 22:18-19.

“Let Us Take for Ourselves the Pastures of God for a Possession"

15 April 2011: As can clearly be seen in the PLO logo image above, all of the territory of Israel constitutes "the pastures of God" that the Palestinian terrorists, the Palestinian National Authority and the Palestinian people desire to cut off from being a nation.

And just in case anyone tries to deceive you into believing that the Palestinian Authority is in some way, shape or form different from it's parent Palestinian Liberation Organization, then watch this video as a co-educational Palestinian Authority news (i.e. propaganda) team defines "Palestine" as inclusive of Tel Aviv, Haifa, Galilee, Negev, Rosh Hanikra, Caesarea, Acre, Masada, Beit Shean, and Jerusalem.

And could someone please call Israeli PM Netanyahu and the members of the Knesset to inform them that there is no truth to Palestinian Authority's assurances of their acceptance of Israel's existence; that their true agenda is directly related to a non-recognition of the State of Israel. Negotiating with such Islamic deceivers is a monumental waste of time, effort and New Israeli Shekels. Advise them to read and heed Asaph's prophetic prayer in Psalm 83.

BillSalus: Will Arab Protests Hasten Psalm 83 & Ezekiel 38?

By Bill Salus Following closely behind the 2010 pullout of American boots on the ground in Iraq, the first quarter of 2011 experienced an unprecedented period of Arab Protests. Even today’s top eschatologists are asking who opened up Pandora’s Box in the Middle East. Like California wildfires, these Arab protests have spread out of control across the region.

Chronologically ordering the protests, which have often morphed into revolts, helps achieve a greater understanding of where Mideast events could be heading.

January 5, 2011 – Shiite Muslim Cleric Muqtada Al-Sadr came out of self-imposed exile in Iran to team up with pro-Iranian Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki in Iraq. In a slap to America’s face, Iraq is now closer to becoming an Iranian proxy state than ever before. Although Iran (Persia) is prominent in Ezekiel 38:5, Iraq seems to appear in the Psalm 83 prophecy along with Syria under the banner of “Assyria.” (Ps. 83:8)

January 13, 2011 – Secretary General of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah convinces 11 Lebanese cabinet members to resign, collapsing the government of Lebanon. Hezbollah shows up in Psalm 83:7 as the stateless “Inhabitants of Tyre.”

January 15, 2011 – Tunisians protest the 23 year rule of Arab dictator Zine El Bidine Ben Ali causing him to step down from his presidential post. This represented the first time in history that an Arab dictator was overthrown by popular revolt. The consensus amongst many end time’s experts is that Tunisia enlists with Russia under the banner of "Put" in Ezekiel 38:5

February 11, 2011- Egyptians crowd Tahrir square for 18 days provoking Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak to relinquish his 30 year reign. Interestingly, the Egyptians are still protesting. However, now they want chief military leader Mohamed Hussein Tantawi to step down. Recently, Egyptian protesters crowded around the Israeli embassy promoting the “May 15th Million Man Arab March” against Israel. The goal of this March is to bring hundreds of thousands of Palestinian Refugees from the surrounding Arab communities to the borders of Israel.

All of the activity in Egypt hints of the soon fulfillment of Isaiah 19:1-4, which predicts Egyptian unrest will lead to regional conflicts and ultimately a cruel master over Egypt. The Palestinian march could find association with those forced to the border of Israel in Obadiah 1:7. Additionally, Egypt shows up in Psalm 83:6 as the descendants of Hagar under the banner of the Hagarenes or Hagrites in some bible translations, and the Palestinian refugees as the stateless “tents of Edom.”

February 11, 2011 – Algerians and Yemenis begin independent protests. Many expositors believe Algeria participates in the Ezekiel 38 & 39 invasion of Israel as part of the "Put" delegation. Conversely, the Yemenis show up in Ezekiel 38:13 objecting to Russia's invasion plans under the banner of Sheba.

February 11, 2011 – King Abdullah II of Jordan sacks his cabinet to sway off a popular revolution against his ruling Hashemite Kingdom minority.

February 13, 2011 – King Abdullah II engages in the first round of a series of meetings with members of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). The MB is pro-Palestinian and Anti-Israel. Additionally, they support Jihad against the Jewish State. Jordan appears in Psalm 83:6-8 as the Ammonites, Moabites, Edomites, and children of Lot.

February 15, 2011 – To the extreme displeasure of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, rebels protest his 40+ year rule and call for his ouster. Shortly thereafter, civil war breaks out between the rebels and Gaddafi supporters. At the time of the issuance of this article, Gaddafi is still ruling the country. Libya is listed among the Ezekiel 38 invaders.

March 18, 2011 – Libya’s civil war drags France, Britain, and the USA into the fighting by implementing a “No-Fly” Zone over Libyan airspace.

March 25, 2011 – Saudi Arabia annexes Bahrain as a 14th province under the jurisdiction of Riyadh in order to protect the ruling Sunni minority from violent protests emanating out from the Shiite majority. This move ruffles Iranian and Iraqi feathers and forces Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to combine forces and deploy 11,000 troops and numerous tanks into Bahrain.

Saudi Arabia shows up in Psalm 83:6 as the “Ishmaelites” and as a protester alongside Yemen against the Ezekiel invaders. They are listed as Dedan in Ezekiel 38:13. The fate of this pending face off over Bahrain between Iran and Saudi Arabia remains unknown at the time of this article.

March 29, 2011 – Syrian protesters flood the streets of many Syrian towns calling for radical reforms in the Alawite led government of Bashar Assad. Due to state censored media it is difficult to know how bloody the protests have been. However, numerous reports suggest that many protesters have died and / or been injured and Syrian soldiers have been killed for disobeying orders to shoot the protesters. As mentioned earlier, Syria and at least northern Iraq seem to be listed in Psalm 83:8 as the “Assyrians.”

Meanwhile, Israel has become increasingly insecure and isolated as a result of all the protests and renewed rocket assaults out of Gaza from the Hamas. Hamas, is identified in Psalm 83:7 as Philistia. This renewed violence has prompted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to recently visit Germany to procure a sixth “Dolphin Class Submarine.” These subs can support a nuclear payload and Israel presently has three in operation, two coming soon, and hopefully a sixth a few years down the road.

Additionally, Israel has deployed their Iron Dome Defense System, which has intercepted 8 out of the 8 rockets aimed within its vicinity as of April 9, 2011. According to the “Israel Project,” which monitors the number of Hamas rocket assaults, Hamas has fired 315 rockets into Israel as of April 10, 2011. This eclipses the 238 rockets lobbed into Israel in 2010 and has many Israelis concerned its “Operation Cast Lead” all over again.

Due to all the events above, the department of Homeland Security has raised the terror threat level to orange (high), which is its highest level since the twin towers were toppled on September 11, 2001.**

Additionally, due to increased oil prices, Americans are again experiencing pain at the pump. In 2009 the average price per barrel of crude oil was $53.48. In 2010 a barrel of crude averaged $71.21. Already in 2011 a barrel of crude oil has cost $108.00, prompting many economic analysts to project a summer spike of $150.00 per barrel. Many believe the cost per gallon of gasoline will soon surpass the $5.00 mark.

While the world is struggling to remedy its global financial crisis, Mideast unrest is threatening to turn world economies into a tailspin. Liberal pundits believe the protest will result in Arab democracies popping up in the affected areas; however the irony is that all of these populations surface in the end time war prophecies of Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38. Therefore, we can logically conclude that when the Mideast dust settles, the Israeli war prophecies will begin.

I’m watching for the fulfillment of Psalm 83 first followed shortly thereafter by the Ezekiel 38 invasion. Both of these prophecies could occur between now and anytime real soon and likely during this present generation.

Prophecy Update: Nathan Jones Techno-Talk About Bible Prophecy

12 April 2011: This week on Prophecy Update host, Bill Salus, interviews Nathan Jones about the prophetic implications of today’s technologies. Nathan is the Webminister of Lamb and Lion Ministries founded by Dr. David Reagan. Nathan is a wizard when it comes to understanding the Internet and Social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

In this fascinating interview Nathan Jones illustrates to the listeners how Daniel 12:4 predicted the information age would come in the end times. Furthermore, he articulates how Christians can use today’s technologies to advance the Kingdom of God.

The Libyan War

27 March 2011: Prior to United Nations sanctioned military action by the West (EU, US, CAN) the Western media was prompt to report to our population the urgent calls from the fighters and civilians on the ground opposing Qaddafi and the Arab League for our intervention; to save the Libyan people from Qaddafi’s genocide.

Who started this war in Libya, and under what ideological banner?

Could it be the same group of Islamic agitators as exists elsewhere in the world – Islamic fundamentalists? The al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun. The Muslim Brotherhood. This is same group and Islamist ideology the socialist left in the West loves to promote as a cause célèbre. Freedom fighters and defenders of the common Muslim men, women and children against the anti-democratic despots and their totalitarian regimes supported by the West to the tune of billions of dollars for decades. The corporate media in the US have even gone so far as to heap praise and hero worship upon the anti-Qaddafi fighters, including suicide and IED bombers identical to those repeatedly attacking major Western cities such as Jerusalem, Madrid, Paris, London, New York City and Washington, D.C. This is the same ideology as is being opposed by our nation’s finest heroes and our dwindling treasury in Afghanistan and Iraq for the better part of the past 10 years, and was completely unopposed in any meaningful way going back to the first WTC bombing in 1993.

So we find ourselves intervening in an illegal, undeclared war in Libya, characterized by our national leadership as a “kinetic military action,” for the purpose of preventing genocide against the same Islamic “freedom fighters” as we have fought against all this time in Afghanistan and Iraq. Tell me, why are our armed forces responding to the Libyan civil war? Does not the Arab League possess enough military hardware, fighting men and treasury to oppose Qaddafi as they have consistently done against the State of Israel for the past 63 years? Why do the Arab Muslims need our military forces to do their dirty work? We’re told by our national leadership that our efforts in Libya will ultimate result in democracy coming to the Libyan people. Really? Do they mean the same kind of democracy that came to the Gaza Strip or Lebanon?

There is enough information in this brief article to wake up all but the most comatose, consciousness-suspended or gleefully misinformed among us regarding the reality of the situation. In case you’re still unsure about that which I write, allow me to be as blunt as Diana West has been: Our military forces have joined the Islamic Jihad. So how does it feel to be the Global Jihad’s rent-a-cop?

24 March 2010: President Obama fully and intentionally skirted the U.S. Constitution in illegally ordering the Pentagon to commence acts of war against Libya. In light of this fact President Obama’s orders to the U.S. military to execute these attacks in Libya constitutes an illegal order under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).

Members of the US Armed Forces who obey illegal orders are subject to criminal prosecution.

Per the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ):

Section 16c(1)(c): Lawfulness. A general order or regulation is lawful unless it is contrary to the Constitution, the laws of the United States, or lawful superior orders or for some other reason is beyond the authority of the official issuing it.

Section 14c(2)(a)(i): Inference of lawfulness. A order requiring the performance of a military duty or act may be inferred to be lawful and it is disobeyed at the peril of the subordinate. This inference does not apply to a patently illegal order, such as one that directs the commission of a crime.

Such illegal orders are a crime as in war crime, an international war crime at that. These illegal orders can apply as war crimes in the International Court of Justice subjecting every member of the US Armed Forces, from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff down to the lowest ranking service member who carried out these orders, to trial and punishment outside of any American jurisdiction.

The UCMJ allows for the disobedience of illegal orders because such orders constitute a crime, or be part of a criminal conspiracy, either under military, civilian or international law.

I urge both Republican and Democrat members of our House of Representatives and Senate to immediately begin impeachment proceedings against President Barack Hussein Obama II and to immediately direct our National Military Command Authority to halt all military operations against Libya.

Revived Rome Flexes Its Military Might

19 March 2011: And so it begins. With the approval and acquiescence of the world governing body, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) adopted Resolution 1973 as its casus belli for the enforcement of UNSC Resolution 1970.

Within 48 hours of the adoption of this resolution the emergent superpower of Bible prophecy, the European Union, took the lead in declaring a de facto state of war exists against an Islamic sovereign state in the throes of a civil war. Today, for the first time, the armed forces of the European Union went to war against the government of Libya.

And where is America, formerly the military superpower and leader of the so-called free world? In a supporting role! And the apparent leader of the European Union's first military adventure outside of Europe's borders - the French-Hungarian/Greek-Jewish President of France, Nicholas Paul Stephane Sarkozy de Nagy-Bosca.

I believe we are all witnesses to a benchmark event of profound eschatological implications and from which there will be no turning back. September 11, 2001 was a day that changed America forever. March 19, 2011, eight years to the day from the start of the American-led conquest of Saddam Hussein's Ba'athist Iraq, is a day that will prove to be one which changes our world forever.

Update: The NATO base in Naples, Italy, AFSOUTH or Armed Forces South, is the headquarters of this European-led military operation in Libya, and the primary British aviation contribution will be controlled from the Joint Forces Air Component (JFAC) located at Akrotiri, Cyprus. The United Arab Emirates and Qatar have pledged approximately 30 combat aircraft to be placed under European command. The name given to the war against the Libyan regime is "Operation Odyssey Dawn."

All war is based upon deception, and this war will be no exception. The truth behind this war is going to be defended by a bodyguard of lies. So I guess it goes without saying that the lies are being told in advance. One such lie is, "no ground troops." There will have to be boots on the ground in Libya; it is unavoidable in order to ensure the ill-defined mission objectives that do exist are met.

The Islamic War: Sunni versus Shiite

15 March 2011: It appears as though the Sunni Arab regimes of the Arabian Peninsula and the Persian Gulf region have drawn a circle in the sand around the militarily expansionist plans of the Islamic Republic of Iran in a manner akin to that when the Consul of the Roman Republic, Gaius Popilius Laenas, drew a circle in the sand around the feet of the Seleucid Empire’s King Antiochus IV Epiphanes regarding his planned conquest of Ptolemaic Egypt and Cyprus about 2,180 years ago.

First, a brief look at history and prophetic fulfillment.

When the prototype of the coming Antichrist, Antiochus IV Epiphanes, arrived with his military forces outside the city of Alexandria he was met by Consul Laenas. Antiochus reached out with his hand in friendship, but instead of Laenas’ hand in reciprocity he received instead an ultimatum from the Roman Senate demanding his immediate withdrawal from Egypt and Cyprus. This ultimatum contained the stipulation that anything short of immediate and unconditional compliance would place the Seleucid Empire in a state of war with the Roman Republic. Antiochus attempted to play for time, saying he would consult his staff about the ultimatum, whereupon Laenas then took a staff and drew a complete circle in the sand around his feet and demanded, “Before you step out of this circle I will have your reply to the Senate.”

This monumentally historic event in the history of the ancient world, where Rome directly confronted the prototype Antichrist, was a literal precursor fulfillment of Daniel 11:30, “For the ships of Kittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant,” just as this fulfillment led directly to the precursor fulfillment of the Abomination of Desolation, and all of the other barbarous acts as discussed in the useful but not divinely inspired apocryphal book, 2 Maccabees, chapters 5 and 6.

In the above passage from Daniel, Roman Consul Laenas is represented as “the ships of Kittim” according to the Vulgate (Latin) translation of the original Hebrew text.

"et venient super eum trieres et Romani et percutietur et revertetur et indignabitur contra testamentum sanctuarii et faciet reverteturque et cogitabit adversum eos qui dereliquerunt testamentum sanctuarii"
"And the galleys and the Romans shall come upon him, and he shall be struck, and shall return, and shall have indignation against the covenant of the sanctuary, and he shall succeed: and he shall return, and shall devise against them that have forsaken the covenant of the sanctuary."

Kittim was a son of Javan, grandson of Japheth and great-grandson of Noah.

Back to the present era.

It would seem that the pro-Western regime (majority Sunni Muslims) in Lebanon understood the intentions of the Islamic Republic of Iran though its Hezbollah proxy, a military entity directly related to the IRCG, and decided to allow the United Nation determine culpability for the assassination of its former president, Rafik Hariri and couple of dozen other people. It’s interesting to note that Lebanon did not turn to the Arab League or neighboring majority Sunni Islamic states to offer their support for its sovereignty. Not only did the Sunni Arab regimes fail to act, but so has the United Nations (read: global governance) thus far. This failure of Sunni Muslim cohesion and the UN’s powerlessness did not go un-noticed by the apocalyptic-minded Shi’a regime in Iran and they exploited it fully to the point that Lebanon has now become a de facto Iranian client state through Hezbollah’s military prowess.

Then, as the wave of Sunni Arab protests swept into the heart of the Middle East from North Africa, many of which the Iranian regime has claimed credit for, a paradigm shift occurred within the Sunni-led regimes of the Arabian Peninsula that has been driven as much by fear and the need for self-preservation as it is by the ages old Sunni-Shi’a schism within Islam.

Gone are the days of proxy warfare primarily between Iran and Saudi Arabia as evidenced in Iraq between Sunni and Shiite, or direct, albeit somewhat covert, Saudi military intervention in the Iranian backed Shiite insurgency in Yemen. Now as the very real specter of Iranian expansion directly threatens Sunni rule in the Arabian Peninsula, a line has been drawn in the sand, and that line encircles the tiny nation-state of Bahrain.

Within the past day Saudi Arabian military forces, accompanied by the military forces of Kuwait and other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) nations, have made great spectacle in deploying significant numbers of their armored vehicles and combat troops into Bahrain at that government’s request to forcibly put down an insurrection of Iranian-inspired Shi’a Muslims. Iran’s reaction to this deployment makes the unambiguous threat of war against the Saudi’s and GCC nations all too real.

The Iranian foreign ministry, as if they have a say in the affairs of another sovereign state, has declared the Bahrani government’s request “illegal.” The Iranian parliament also branded Saudi Arabian regime of King Abdullah as “illegitimate” and the deployment of his troops as being “interference” in Bahrain’s internal affairs which would have “dangerous consequences.” This is far more than just a case of Islamic hypocrisy with the Iranian pot calling the Saudi kettle black; “them's fightin’ words” in any culture.

My curiosity now is piqued in wondering if the escalation of this new inter-Islamic crisis might lead to the fulfillment of Jeremiah 49:34-39. Only time will tell how this plays out, yet it will be very interesting to watch closely nonetheless; the whole of the Middle East is a boiling cauldron setting the conditions under which Biblical prophecy will continue to fulfill literally before our eyes.
