Global SITREP B1-15: More Indications and Warnings of the Fast Approaching 70th Week


UPDATED 21 FEBRUARY 2015: The title of this SITREP has been updated and so is the content to be updated. In my studies I noticed a parallel of indicator (signs) prophecies in Jesus' Olivet Discourse and Paul's prophetic discourse in Romans 11. I have read these verses hundreds of times and written about them separately. The thing here is they should be linked together directly because they speak to the exact same End Times sign (Indication and Warning).

In Jesus discourse on the Mount of Olives the 21st chapter of Luke records our Lord repeating Gabriel's prophecy recorded in Daniel 9:26b but adding a significant detail. In verses 20 through 24 where the Lord is speaking about the near future of that generation when the armies of the Flavian Dynasty of the Roman Empire would lay siege to and destroy the city of Jerusalem and the Temple. 

As we all know this part of the prophecy was fulfilled in 70 AD. But now we fast forward to the present, 27 generations later, and our looking to the complete fulfillment of the prophecy during this current generation.

In Luke 21:24 Jesus carries this prophecy forward in great detail to describe the beginning of the dispersion of Israel to all the nations of the world, and then He says, "And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled." 

In Romans 11 Paul's prophesy is about the time in the our near future when Israel's spiritual blindness will be removed thereby allowing Israel to recognize and receive Jesus as the true Messiah. The Holy Spirit had Paul specify that time as being when "the fulness of the Gentiles has come in." 

Let's define what is meant by "the times of the Gentiles" and "the fulness of the Gentiles."  Jerusalem was Jewish until the four Imperial Roman legions explicitly fulfilled Gabriel's prophecy of Daniel 9:26b. This is where "the times of the Gentiles commenced," with the word times (Greek: kairos) carrying the meaning of a measurable but limited amount of time, now approaching its 1,945th year. The fulness (Greek: plērōma) carrying the meaning of a completed complement or number of Gentiles, both dead and living, in the Bride of Christ.

The implication here is that we are presently at a point in the times of the Gentiles where the inclusion of the proverbial "last Gentile" grafted in as the "branches of the holy root" (Romans 11:16-18) is a known unknown number. It is a number known only to God; but it's nearness to completion is currently unknown by us, yet we know it is near, "even at the door."


18 February 2015: As Israel stands ready to receive a significant winter storm tomorrow, there is a more prophetically significant front approaching - a return to Eretz Israel of the remainder of the Lord's chosen people still in diaspora. Recent events in Europe with Islamic State terrorists deliberately hunting down Jews in France, Denmark and else where in Europe. PM Netanyahu recently made a plea for Jews in Europe to make aliyah in a "mass immigration" and return to Eretz Israel. 

Some in Europe, the scene of the holocaust of the Jews in the decade prior to Israel's prophetic rebirth as a nation, have taken offense to Bibi's call. President Hollande of France in particular suggested the call for aliyah was "an insult" to Europe's Jews. President Hollande could not be more hopelessly wrong because Jewish aliyah to Israel over the past 70 years is the literal fulfillment of Bible prophecy. And it will only increase in the days and months ahead.

At present there are right around 1.7 million Jews living in Europe, half of them living in France (580K) and England (350K), and the rest predominantly in the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Hungary, Holland, Belgium and Italy.  Across the pond here in the good ol' USA there are five times as many Jews as there are in Europe: a whopping 8.3 million -- which is even more than than in Israel. In Canada, Argentina, Brazil and Australia there's another 1 million. That's a very rough grand total of 11 million Jews who remain living in diaspora but who will one day soon make aliyah to join their roughly 7.8 million brethren already living in the covenant land God promised to them.


Many times have I cited Isaiah 11:14 as being directly linked to the prophecy of Psalm 83. However, did you know that Isaiah 11:10-11 are two of the key verses which also prophetically speak to the global aliyah of Jews immediately prior to the final engagements of the Psalm 83 war? The same is true for Ezekiel 28 where the chapter commences with the woes to come for Lebanon (see: Joshua 13) it concludes with the prophetic words of verses 25 and 26:

“When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and am hallowed in them in the sight of the Gentiles, then they will dwell in their own land which I gave to My servant Jacob. And they will dwell safely there, build houses, and plant vineyards; yes, they will dwell securely, when I execute judgments on all those around them who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the Lord their God.”
And this aliyah will happen not because Bibi Netanyahu has called for it, or the President of France is against it, but because the LORD God has said it will happen because He will do it.  And it will happen before the 70th Week the angel Gabriel prophesied to Daniel about (Daniel 9:24-27) becomes a reality of literally fulfilled prophecy in the very near future.

I believe Him, literally.

I was just talking to a friend of mine about this, Sean. I have wondered what would make the Jews want to leave modern countries like the ones in Europe and the U.S. but Elohim is on top of it =)

There was a Christian church in Florida vandalized with muslim (alluh akbar) and swastika paintings a few days ago. A man in Detroit stabbed 4 people after he verified if they were muslim or not. So the hatred is getting brave here too.

The universities are so anti-Israel / Jew it is disgusting! The student governments are voting to boycott Israel all over this country.

Just the other day I was with my wife and two kids in the Costco parking lot and an arab muslim man with his girl burrito and two children decided to stare me down as we walked by. I had ZERO interaction with this person but I noticed he was staring at me as we walked by like he was some kind of tough guy… I stopped about 3 feet away and stared him down and made him break eye contact but that was very creepy! We are in AZ so who knows what is lurking around in the desert… ISIS?

Yup, they're here in many places.

What's happening in the EU will also happen here... we are not Beslan proof.

Ken B said...

There’s an article on Drudge that DC is riddled with anti-Semitic and pro-ISIS graffiti that they can’t clean off without it reappearing. I think the link went to the free beacon…

I think the complacent general population of this country is in for another wake up call.

Sadly.

Oh yes Ken, the District of Columbia is chock full of Islamic terrorists.

And their Apologist-In-Chief lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Quotes from him:

I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” Audacity of Hope, p. 261

To a Muslim ANYTHING against Islam is a wind shift in an ugly direction. To Obama that also means ANYTHING related to Bible-based Christianity, the Judeo-Christian ethic and morality. He is by definition anti-Christ.

"If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they." Barack Hussein Obama speaking to Cathleen Falsani, the former religion reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times, on Saturday, 27 March 2004

Sean,

Given how afraid this WH is of the Netanyahu speech, I have this weird feeling they might go so far as to announce another bad deal with Iran BEFORE the speech, to try to "preempt" it!

I always thought the "times of the Gentiles" began when Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem and there was no longer a descendant of David reigning on the throne. Perhaps I was mistaught. That seems to happen a lot these days. Anyway, we can see the times ending and I believe that the fullness of the Gentiles can happen anytime.

Sean Osborne said...

hartdawg,

That's true when one thinks of the image representing Gentile empires that Daniel interpreted for Nebuchadnezzar; the last of which, Rome, has two iterations in that it was the Gentile world empire of Jesus day and it will be the world empire when He returns at the Second Coming.

Also Jesus was speaking specifically of Jerusalem being "trampled" by Gentiles which has been the specific case since the Roman conquest of 70AD, through the Byzantine period and then the Arab Muslim conquest, the Crusaders State and then forward the Ottoman Empire, the British Empire and finally the State of Israel wherein at this time Jerusalem, the Temple Mount, is still trampled Arab Muslims.

In Paul's prophecy the grafting in of Gentiles as a branch of the "olive tree" (i.e. the Bride of Christ that will be taken in the Harpazo) only began when the Apostles, especially Paul, began taking the Gospel to the world-at-large following their empowerment on Day of Pentecost.

The two prophecies are speaking about the same thing... the end of Gentile domination of Jerusalem will coincide with the time when the last gentile is saved into the Bride of Christ prior to the Harpazo.

Very good Word, Sean and totally agree with it.

We are so very close and one of the major proofs of this is how much God's WORD is being revealed big time to all who will diligently search it out. No time for games or silly distractions.

Sean Osborne said...

Amen GG5!

There are an increasing number of biblical eschatologists, watchmen on the wall and prophecy teachers who are grouping up and pooling research for something important. The Spirit is moving powerfully!

Sean Osborne said...

mark3210,

I'm not of the opinion that this WH is afraid of what Netanyahu will say.

They simply don't want their blood enemy to speak to the American electorate and their representatives while he's here; in fact, they don't want him here period. Still, this is a battle on the Spiritual level more than it is on the earthly physical level.

And there was war in Heaven...

Hey sean, have you seen the YouTube video of the middle school kid calling obama out. His name is CJ Pearson. His video went viral. A 13 year old kid has more sense than a lot of those nincompopes in Washington. You should check it out....it's great

Sean Osborne said...

hartdawg,

Yes, I have seen CJ Pearson's now completely gone viral video.

Almost 600,000 views in less than 72 hours is pretty impressive. Likes outgunning dislikes by a 13 to 1 margin. Very cool.
