Global SITREP E11-14: 2014 Year-Ending Current Events

UPDATE 31 December 2014: This is the final SITREP update for the year 2014 and it will touch upon a couple of items that I think have strong chances of leading to prophetic fulfillments or furthering the potential for fulfillment in 2015.

Top of the list is the defeat of a Palestinian Authority attempt to force the statehood issue via a UN Security Council resolution this past Tuesday (30 DEC). The resolution required 9 of the 15 UNSC members to vote for it. It fell one vote shy of that mark. This means that its failure makes the nuts and bolts of the non-debated resolution a moot point, and that's a good thing because I would rather focus on a more important element - the fact that most "Palestinians" were opposed to it.  Had the vote passed it would have legitimized a two-state solution and that is something most "Palestinians" and all Muslims are dead set against. They want Israel to die and soon, preferably prior to 2017.

That brings me to the second item. As reported directly below HAMAS and the sum of all the terrorist forces in Gaza believe they are fully prepared to resume war with Israel. The two primary military forces of HAMAS in Gaza, Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades and the National Security Forces just completed within the past couple of days a series of very complex exercises with which they plan to commence hostilities - assaulting and seizing IDF observation posts, and then taking both living and deceased IDF troops back into Gaza as hostages. Full and exquisitely detailed reporting on HAMAS' war planning can be read and seen in video via this embedded link to The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center. It is my contention that this is how the final fulfillment of the entire Psalm 83 prophetic scenario will begin... and end for the so-called "Palestinian" cause. The will likely not survive the next war.

One last thing for 2014. You have got to see this amazing technology that has been developed in France and Israel. Meet the Cicret Bracelet!

25 December 2014: This is a follow up to what I wrote below on 20 December. In today's edition of YNet news we find this report: "Clock Ticking Fast Towards Next Round of Gaza Fighting." The article's author, Yossi Yehoshua, wrote in his analysis of the current situation, "The worse Hamas' financial distress becomes - and the later international air arrives - the more the organization will fire at Israel." This confirms what I wrote in my own analysis here five days ago. The international aid referenced above MUST be delivered according to the internationally brokered ceasefire agreement to HAMAS' possession via Fatah and the Palestinian Authority(PA). At this time the PA is not inclined to provide HAMAS with so much as a shekel. So HAMAS fires rockets and allows snipers to shoot without warning at IDF soldiers as occurred yesterday, Wednesday, 24 December, thereby triggering a cross-border firefight between the IDF and HAMAS. Something just like this could cause the whole tenuous situation to rip wide open.

24 December 2014: Eschatology Today has NOT forgotten about the still unexplained disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 and its passengers, and neither the aircraft nor the passengers will ever be forgotten as long as this blog exists.  There was an article published by Western Journalism.com yesterday that was brought to my attention by a retired CIA field officer I have known for well over a decade now. The headline of the article: Shocking New Malaysia Airlines MH370 Claim Made By Aviation Expert Could Solve The Mystery.  Via this embedded link you can read for yourselves the content of that important article. What I will note is that the details in the article tends to confirm what I wrote in this blog (linked above) back in March 2014 regarding both Diego Garcia and the Maldives Islands.

Oh, by the way, someone has asked (anonymously), "What has MH-370 to do with Bible prophecy?" Well, anonymous, I believe the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH-370 and the 239 souls on-board has everything to do with Jesus Olivet Discourse prophecy (Matthew 24:12) about "lawlessness multiplied" as a sign indicating "the end of the age."

23 December 2014: Within a very few hours of North Korea (DPRK) issuing a direct threat against the White House, the Pentagon and the whole of the continental United States, somebody, nobody knows who exactly, turned off the North Korean connections to the global internet. Not just one plug was pulled, but all of them, and there are many routes that provide internet connectivity between North Korea and the world-at-large. The total disconnect lasted for about 9 hours and during that time it was as if North Korea had ceased to exist as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. Somebody has a very powerful information technology (IT) tool in their cyberwar arsenal to be able to completely make an entire nation's IT infrastructure disappear from the world IT map. The hack of the Sony Corporation servers was bad enough, but what was just done to North Korea makes the Sony hack look like Camp Fire Girls at play.

20 December 2014: This update is to inform so that no one should be caught unawares when full-scale war erupts without warning in HAMAS continuing war against Israel. It could literally begin at any moment. The key you have to knowing when this war will re-erupt is watching the news for anything regarding the current jihadi feud between HAMAS and Fatah. Specifically, if the tenuous relationship between HAMAS and Fatah collapses then renewed war against Israel will erupt without warning. The IDF and State of Israel are not unaware of this fact.

17 December 2014: Is Recent History a Primer to the Literal Fulfillment of Bible Prophecy?

In 1918 following The Great War (WWI) imperial Germany under the Kaiser (Caesar) endured a revolution. In 1919 following the revolution a new new constitution was adopted and the Wiemar Republic was born. For the next decade the Weimar Republic faced economic hardship and a debt burden imposed by the Western Allies that was brought to a head by an economic collapse known as the Great Depression. In 1930 emergency dictatorial rule came to the Weimar Republic which ultimately found total collapse which resulted in the rise of the Nazi Third Reich under Adolf Hitler in 1933. In just 6 years time thereafter World War II erupted.

Fast forward to 1991 when after four decades of the so-called Cold War (it was anything but cold) the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics dissolved and ceased to exist due to  unrelenting economic stagnation and political collapse that had been building over the previous decade. A following a very brief civil war/coup d'etat an independent Russian Federation was created. Now after 23 years the Russian Federation is itself on the verge of total economic and political collapse. One day ago the Russian Federation's currency collapsed leaving President Vladimir Putin and his ruling oligarchs with a national crisis they almost certainly will blame the West for due to its imposition of economic sanctions and the effect of American oil shale on the global market which has collapsed oil prices. Half of Russia's economy depends on oil.

The conditions may now be right for Russia to find itself once again in a totalitarian dictatorship, one foretold by the prophet Ezekiel two and a half millennia ago. We may now bear witness to the sudden rise of Gog of Magog, chief prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, who will find it necessary to play the ongoing Russian military adventure gambit to the hilt and in a direction other than that which the LORD God will ultimately take him via some supernatural hooks.

15 December 2014: With just about two weeks remaining in 2014 it seems like a good idea to fashion a year-ending SITREP to take a look at prophetic themes becoming manifest at the present time. Nobody knows what 2015 may bring, but all things considered it's hard to see anything but danger ahead.

One of the most persistent eschatological themes is of a world governance that will come under the control of the Antichrist during the 70th Week prophesied by the angel Gabriel. I have on more than one occasion opined on this blog about certain leaders of government, industry and finance in the West following an agenda pursuant to the establishment of a body of world governance, all the while steering clear of any hint of the more conspiratorial theories out there which I have always held at the end of a ten-foot pole. 

However, in a speech given this past Friday in the Senate chamber by a Republican Conservative and true American patriot, Jeff Sessions of Alabama, there sprang forth a quote which minces no words regarding the aforementioned agenda, and could be placed on the same page and in the same ink as quotes from many of this Republic's founding fathers. Stated Senator Sessions, "These super-elites in Washington and Wall Street dream of a world without borders, a paradise where things like laws and rules and national boundaries don’t get in the way of their grand chimera."  The full text of this Senator Sessions' speech is available here

And in case there is any doubt about which eschatological theme I am linking Senator Sessions quote to, let me say that it is beyond the most often referenced last days themes of wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilences and earthquakes. I am referring to the last days theme of lawlessness. We Americans have seen an incredible abundance of lawlessness in very recent days. Our Constitution is our law; it is the law of this land.  For the most part it is based upon entitled truths which our founding fathers held to that were self-evident due to the fact that they were based upon "the Laws of nature and Nature's God."

Those founding fathers in the Congress of the 13 original united States wrote and individually signed their fifty-six names to the Declaration of Independence stating that that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." They then crafted and ratified the Constitution to enumerate the powers of three co-equal branches of human governance and reserved those powers not enumerated to the States or to the people. When blatant and ongoing usurpation of the enumerated and non-enumerated powers occurs via executive fiat and memorandum that is called lawlessness, and lawlessness is against the consent of the governed and therefore it is also against God. And here we sit in near total silence. Has our national motto become "In Lies We Trust"?

Lawlessness is one of the signs of which our Lord Jesus Christ spoke during the Olivet Discourse as recorded in Matthew 24:12. There are many types of lawlessness and if you read your local newspaper or favorite online news source you can probably find in today's edition a half-dozen or more examples of rampant lawlessness both here in the U.S. but also the world over. 

How about protestors in New York City this past weekend calling for the immediate deaths of law enforcement officers? How about a Muslim jihadist supporter of the Islamic State just overnight holding dozens in a Sydney, Australia Lindt chocolate shop and cafe? Or how about the President of the United States, one of the above referenced "super-elites", engaging the lawlessness of unconstitutional executive fiat, not by Executive Order mind you, but by a mere memorandum which has no standing whatsoever in American law. We fought a revolution against the British Empire nearly 240 years ago to put an end to this type of lawlessness. Does history repeat? And what of the lawlessness in the U.S. Department of Education! Oops, did I say education? Pardon me, I meant  to say the U.S. Department of Indoctrination.

Now read Jesus' words again and try to imagine a world where such abounding lawlessness causes to love of many to grow cold. These current events and examples of lawlessness raise my righteous indignation precipitously, but for them to cause my love to grow cold? Perish the thought!

When Jesus said 'wars and rumors of wars' He wasn't just speaking about the Middle East, he was talking about planet earth in general. While we mainly place our focus on the Middle East, there are very serious wars going on in the periphery, and this is the reason for the maps above. North-central Africa is the location of a great deal of warfare these days, and most if not all of that is due to the Muslim jihadists known as Boko Haram.  The warfare at present is centered on the region defined by Lake Chad. The Republic of Cameroon recently found itself the object of an invasion by Boko Haram when a thousand or more jihadists crossed lake Chad by boat to attack along a broad front encompassing eight different towns and villages. After days of firefights the Cameroonian soldiers fought off the jihadists and chased them back into Lake Chad where many of their boats were sunk leaving the jihadists to their fate of drowning or as prey to crocodiles. Wherever war occurs, disease and other pestilence soon follows, and Lord knows Africa due west of where this fighting occurred is the epicenter of the current Ebola epidemic. Things here will get much, much worse in 2015.

Most of us awoke to the horror of the Taliban jihadist assault in Pakistan on Tuesday, 16 December. Over 140 people, the vast majority children between the ages of 12 and 16 were gunned down or blown up or burned to death in school. Why do I mention this here? because this is precisely the type of attack the jihadists have long promised (for the better part of ten years now) to bring into one or more American elementary schools. There was the school massacre in Beslan, Russia, and now in Peshawar, Pakistan. Sometown, USA will be next. It's a near certainty as the U.S. becomes more lawless and more like a third-world country with every day that passes because we are allowing it to happen across our lawless borders which are undefended by a lawless federal government.

Another item that doesn't get nearly the attention it deserves is the insane amount of deadly radiation that continues to pour into the Pacific Ocean from the several crippled Japanese nuclear reactors at Fukushima. Beta radiation levels are reportedly upwards of 50,000% higher than what they were one year ago, or even just a few months ago this past summer. The great ocean conveyor current and prevailing westerly winds have raised radiation levels in the continental United States to very unsafe levels, and not just along the US West Coast. Locations such as Phoenix and Tucson Arizona where beta radiation levels at 10 and 21 times government safe standards are comparable to levels in Chicago, Illinois; Montgomery, Alabama and Madison, Wisconsin where the greatly exceed the 1000 beta radiation CPM (counts per minute) which Uncle Sam knows very well to be a serious health issue. Or in the city of my birth, San Diego, beta radiation levels are now 60 times higher than they were one year ago. What you don't know about, or can't see, can kill you... slowly. You can read all of this and more yourself at the EnviroReporter.com website. The good news, if it can be called that, is Fukushima and these current beta radiation levels are not even close to what will occur at the Second and Third Trumpets of Revelation 8, but it would appear that we're getting a slight foretaste of of those events.

I enjoy reading your thoughts as for the last days before the rapture of the Church. Seems to me the US is the last vestige of
so called life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And thing will get much worse.

Wow, I wonder if the people in those areas with high radiation should be taking iodine tablets.

mark3210 said...

A lot can happen in 2 weeks.

Are you implying through your recent posts that you don't anticipate any major prophecies to be fulfilled in the remainder of 2014?

Ld said...


In Matthew 24, when the disciples asked Jesus about the sign of the end of the world (v4) He answers, "Take heed that no man deceive you". Deception. This is Jesus' first warning to us. Our "leaders" , and this includes those that we think are on our side, continue to deceive. The church is overrun with deceptive teachers failing to preach truth. World leaders and people in position to make a difference deceive us. We are clearly at this point in world history. I have been feeling the burden of something very impactful about to happen here in the US. I don't have a clue specifically, but it's not good. I am concerned that the "something big" may be the result of our government tossing Israel under the bus with the current UN/Palestine statehood rouse. If our government decides to go along, tossing Israel under the bus, I fear what hell may be unleashed on this nation. Something is moving, and we need to be in prayer.

I thank you for the perspective your unique experience brings to the table. We are able to watch the news and see the Bible story unfold before our very eyes…and to be informed. Those who follow prophecy know that it is just a matter of time before Ps 83, Jer 49, etc, etc. get fulfilled. I thank you for your incredible perspective and energies on this blog. I read it daily and really wanted to just to let you know that you are greatly appreciated.

May God bless you and your family (and all the followers of this blog) in this Christmas season.

KI tabs are non-radioactive salts which blocks absorption of radioactive iodine (Iodine 131) into the thyroid gland.

Beta radiation is composed of the subatomic particles from the nucleus of the fuel used in the Fukushima nuke reactors. Fukushima's melted reactor cores are monstrous beta particle emitters.

The beta particles need to be fully identified first to know which part of the body they will affect.

Sean Osborne said...


Thanks and may God richly bless you and yours this Blessed season!

jmoll106 said...

Good to know, I pray we can be a useful vessel for the Lord during these dark days.

Sean Osborne said...


Anything can happen between today and 2015, so I am not implying anything.

Instead I am telling one and all just some of the potentially important things that I see occurring on right now, but which most of the MSM say nothing about because they are clueless about the truth of the Bible's prophetic perspective.

Let me add here that I know you're looking for something more concrete for the next two weeks. That much I cannot say. However, there is something any student of recent history should be able to say with relative certainty, and that is as follows.

Just as the short-lived German Wiemar Republic economically collapsed and was replaced by a totalitarian dictatorship (the Nazi's) so too will the current Russian Federal Republic collapse due to economic reasons and be replaced with a dictatorship led by the one God has named through the prophet Ezekiel as "Gog of Magog."

The Russian economic collapse and totalitarian rebirth will probably not occur within in the next two weeks, but it is an event in progress and could very well come to fruition during 2015.

hartdawg said...

Quick question sean, does rosh mean head or summit in Ezekiel 38, or is rosh Russia? Both sides provide convincing evidence. Or can rosh be a reference to both?

Sean Osborne said...

I say both. The Hebrew word phrase ro'sh nasiy describing the position of Gog of Magog as also ruling over two other lands (Meshech and Tubal) is the literal meaning.

However, this phrase's actual pronunciation immediately brings to mind the sum total identification of the peoples of Magog, Meshech and Tubal - as the Ro'sh.

What is a Russian? A Russian is any one and all of the peoples who descend from five or six ethnic identities from prehistorical times. Eastern Slavic tribes in other words.

Today a Russian will be found living in any one of two-dozen oblasts (states), 14 republics, 3 autonomous Okrugs (territories) as well as the Stavropol Krai or the Moskva Federal City, plus the Jewish Autonomous Oblast east of Amur and north of China.

Sean Osborne said...

There is some anonymous individual who would like to know the answer to these questions:

"Why did you make the suggestion to understand this symbol? How does that relate to the article?"

The image is the logo of the World health organization.

The image depicts one serpent coiled as a helix around a staff over a globe of the Earth.

What Christian does not understand what the one serpent represents?

The staff around which the serpent winds itself in a helix is known as an asklepian, a/k/a the rod of Asclepius.

In ancient Greek mythology Asclepius was the son of the god Apollo (Apollyon/Abaddon).

The helix coil represents rejuvenation of genetic material.

So, what, or more correctly, WHO does this symbol represent over the Earth?

hartdawg said...

Sean, I always thought that the symbol was from babylonian healing arts. I guess you learn something new everyday. Keep us posted as you always do.

hartdawg said...

....oh, one more thing, didn't they steal, or counterfeit this symbol from the book of numbers when the serpent was lifted up in the wilderness?

Sean Osborne said...

That was the bronze serpent of Numbers 21, and it was a direct instruction to Moses from the Lord.

mark3210 said...


Assuming the US is behind the North Korea denial of service, did that really accomplish anything? Or are we just poking the bear in the eye?

Sean Osborne said...

This was escheons beyond a simple DoS event.

We turned the DPRK off completely. They were, for continuous 9 hours, in a WWW black hole.

This was somebody giving North Korea (and their allies) a very practical demonstration of the ultimate in cyber warfare capabilities.

Had this not been just a demonstration in the hope that the DPRK would modify its behavior and rhetoric, then they'd still be in that WWW black hole.

hartdawg said...

Should we be concerned, not worried but concerned? I don't think that north Korea is just going to do nothing. I'm not fearful by any means but I wonder if we should be concerned.

Sean Osborne said...

Not concerned.

My reaction was the same as many others, and that was basically....

Oopsie, now I know what that button does.

mark3210 said...


What role does North Korea have in the end times prophecies?

Obviously they are closely allied with Iran and part of Bush's "Axis of Evil".

Sean Osborne said...

I think the DPRK may be one of the "kings of the East."

Sean Osborne said...

For closure, the answer to the questions posed anonymously on 20 December 2014 regarding the symbolism of the image at the head of this SITREP:

The symbol represents the Satanically empowered Antichrist's global dominance, governance and unrestrained power over the whole earth during the final 42 months of the 70th Week.

I am up way past my bedtime but for a very good reason and it is related to the newest Aieasia airbus Flight 8501 missing and no contact for over five hours. Seems to be in the same general area as the Malaysia flight still missing from last year. The one you just updated a day or so ago.

The CNN reporter is waxing on about the monsoon present in that General area but it sure caught my attention when the big map appeared and it was the same area.



Yes Ma'am, that's the news I am just now waking to at 0400 Sunday morning.

A second Malaysian Airline for the second time in 9 months has suddenly lost contact with one of its commercial passenger aircraft (AirAsia Flt QZ 8501) with a reported 162 people on board in the same general area as occurred the disappearance without any trace of Malaysian Airlines Flt 370.

I'm gonna need some time to assemble some established facts before making a conclusion about this, but I do not believe in coincidences, especially when I know that increased terrorist chatter related to commercial air piracy is one several governments radars at this time.

Sean Osborne said...

AirAsia FLT QZ8501 is almost certainly at the bottom of the Java Sea. Debris and bodies are being found and removed from the water as we speak.

There may well have been a technical reason for this crash; some unrecoverable event from which the pilots simply could not overcome appears to have occurred.

Condolences to all the families.

Rhonda said...

Hi Sean,
Have you heard of Stephen Ben Denoon? He has a website called Israeli News Live. His news is also shown on Youtube. Anyway, I just listened to his broadcast called "Hamas Prophetic Sign To The End of The World." I thought you might like to listen in on it. Very interesting and timely!

Sean Osborne said...

Hi Rhonda,

I have never heard of Steven Ben-DeNoon, but I did watch his YouTube message in full.

What I know for sure is that HAMAS is an acronym for the Arabic language words Ḥarakat al-Muqāwamah al-ʾIslāmiyyah. This grouping of Arabic words and the terrorist group it identifies was the creation of the terrorist Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. This name was deliberately selected by the al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun (MB) because the acronym form of it is an Arabic word meaning enthusiasm.

This means that I am unconvinced that Steven's interpretation is an accurate one, but it is an interesting one nevertheless.

I do think he makes a bit of an eschatological error in this message.

I believe that although not directly mentioned by their current name in Bible prophecy, ALL of the Islamic (Sunni and Shi'a) terror organizations that exist in Gaza, Judea and Samaria, as well as the others in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq and the Sinai, are directly referenced in Isaiah 11:14, Psalm 83, Joshua 13 and Ezekiel 28:24-26 (among others) which that is their fate at the hands of the Israeli Defense Forces.

I believe they will be completely and utterly destroyed in the military sense (physically and ideologically) by Israel prior to the 70th Week.

I think Steven Ben-DeNoon should have referenced these prophetic Scriptures in his message instead of just pinning it to Genesis 6:11. These are my first impressions of this teacher, who I think is a Messianic Jew and therefore his ministry is to the Jews worldwide specifically. In that I pray he is abundantly successful.

Additionally, God will not destroy all flesh in the coming Thlipsis/Megas Thlipsis of the 70th Week. Jesus, God in the flesh, promised this to mankind in the Olivet Discourse when He said:

"For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened."

There will be survivors of the 70th who will repopulate the Earth and live during the 1,000 years Jesus reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.

Rhonda said...

Hi Sean,
Thanks for your comments. Yes, he is a Messianic Jew and lived here
in the United States when I started
following his posts. He might be one to keep an eye on because he recently moved to Israel due to God calling him home and his video footage is many times on the ground in Israel. You are correct in his main audience being the Jews worldwide. EschatologyToday and his Israeli News Live are two of my favorite blogs/websites to help me keep abreast of current news. May God's mercy shower on us all.

Sean Osborne said...

I will look at more of Steve Ben-Nun's postings/website.

I see he is still based (DeNoon Institute) in New Port Richie, FLA as that is where he wants everyone's donated money sent to.

I also see where he relies very heavily on what secular Israeli media for insight into current prophetic events.

The most glaring is his headline of 18 DEC 2014: "Israel is moving to pre-1967 borders" through UN action.ha
Hopefully what Steve is awoken up to today is the news that the UN Security Council attempt to force Israel into this reality by 2017 failed last night; the resolution was rejected without the necessity of a US veto being cast.

hartdawg said...

Sean, will you be doing a post about this failed U.N. resolution? It tells me that Israel still has some support.
Happy new years

Sean Osborne said...


I'll post a brief update shortly, just some basics about the secular end of it and how I think this effort may lead us into the final Psalm 83, et al, fulfillment, and that should do it for 2014.

A new series of SITREPs will commence tomorrow with A1-15.

mark3210 said...


While we did witness some major events in 2014, once again it feels like the next year will be the big one.

Really hard for me to imagine that 2015 won't be huge.

Lawrence Prabhakar Williams said...

Brother Sean,
Wishing you the Blessedness of the Season and the New Year. I read with much interest all the SITREPs posted in the last week of December 2014.

The most important has been your last SITREP for 2014 on 31 December 2014.

Two events have to be kept in perspective: One has been the UNSC vote on Palestinian State (that comes by along with most EU states voting for it); the second one is is far more important is the UN and backed by US effort to denuclearize Israel. This motion came up with the Arab States backing it strongly--but did not pick up momentum.

I anticipate that these two issues would Israel's very major and serious challenges that would come again even as the Gaza and the Southern Lebanon-Northern Israel theaters heats up along with perhaps the Golan Heights where the IS and the AL-Nusra front is inching closer to Israeli positions on the Golan.

This past May 2014, I was in Israel and saw the terrain of the Golan and the obvious clear and present dangers that the IS and allies could pose to Israel. But by Daniel 12:1, Israel is assured of Archangel Michael to stand with it as theatres heat up leading to the Psalm 83 war scenarios---

Maranatha !

The Harpazo is imminent !


Sean Osborne said...

Hi Lawrence and my prayers for the Lord's blessing upon you and yours for this new year!

Much is afoot as we start this new year, it will be a challenge keeping up with all of it... even so Marana'tha!
