Global SITREP B1-16: The Approaching Storm Clouds

Update 19 April 2016 Within days of the original post below the government of the Persian Gulf island nation of Bahrain began to deport Lebanese citizens who were determined to have direct links to or were supporters of Lebanese Hezbollah. This action came following a Hezbollah terrorist attack in Bahrain which killed an on-duty policeman and injured several others in Karbabad, a suburb of the capital Manama.

Today the Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reports that the national parliament (Council of Representatives) fully supports all measures taken and yet to be taken by the Bahrain Defense Force to ensure the country's security and stability. 

Quoting the BNA report,  the Council of Representatives "stressed the need to take all measures so as to put an end to the designs of Iran and the terrorist Hezbollah militias against Bahrain, the GCC countries and the whole Arab region in general. The council called for unified GCC and Arab stances to foil all threats and challenges and wage the war on the terrorist acts fomented by Wilayat al-Faqih and the terrorist Hezbollah militia."

This statement is tantamount to the GCC State of Bahrain issuing a declaration of war between itself and the Wilayat al-Faqih (the Islamic Republic of Iran) and Lebanese Hezbollah.

In Bible prophecy, Bahrain is one of the Arabian peninsula nations identified by the prophet Ezekiel as 'Sheba, Dedan' in Ezekiel 38:13 as being allied with the western alliance of nations ('Tarshish, and all their young lions').

13 March 2016: In keeping with the Eschatology Today theme of an approaching flood of prophetic Biblical fulfillment prior to the 70th Week, and in the same context as the GLOBAL flood of Noah came from above as well as below the ground, the conditions in the world today continue to press forward towards that literal reality with ever increasing rapidity and intensity.

The Sunni-Shi'a war transitioned to the next level as seen on Friday, 11 March with the Arab League's decision to officially apply the epithet of "terrorist organization" to Hezbollah. No doubt this is an appellation tied directly to the constantly growing conflict between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and their allies in the various gulf emirates and states of the GCC, plus Egypt and Jordan. It may be nothing more than a matter of time until other Iranian military proxies are so designated.

An officially applied declaration of "terrorist" validates whatever subsequent military action the Sunni nations embark upon against Syria, Lebanon, Iraq or Iran itself as a legitimate course of action. This is a template for military action which has been used since 9/11 by the U.S. and its allies to justify military action in several countries from the Middle East to the Pacific Rim. Make no mistake - actions that will be taken are imminent. Related to this was the also recent Saudi decision to withdraw several millions of dollars of support it had annually provided to the government of Lebanon, thereby acknowledging that Lebanon was fully under the control of the terrorist organization Hezbollah.

What is also interesting in this is that Israeli-Arab groups dismissed the Arab League action as meaningless, thereby indicating a very real schism between Israeli-Arab Sunni's and their Arab League brethren. This reveals the precise level of allegiance Israeli-Arabs have towards Twelver Iran and the depth to which Twelver Iran has gained influence over Israeli-Arabs. This makes Israeli-Arabs a rather dangerous 5th column within Israel. For their part the Shi'a Twelver's responded with a declaration which precisely mirrors the Israeli-Arabs declaration on the irrelevance of the Arab League. This kind of rhetoric will certainly continue until bullets and missiles begin to fly.

Related to this are the twin Iranian launches of ballistic missiles four days ago (9 March). These are ballistic missiles specifically designed to strike Israel with nuclear warheads. Not unlike the bellicose statements of their North Korean allies this past week, this kind of kinetic action by Iran could be seen as a catalyst for potential pre-emptive strikes against Iran by Israel. The domestic political pressure upon PM Netanyahu for taking preemptive military action against Iran must be immense, yet his complaints to the inept and toothless U.N. amounts to nothing more effective than the exhalation of hot gas. 

Another flash point can be found in Israel's Sephardic Chief Rabbi, Yitzhak Yosef, declaring that it is a mitzvah (i.e. a commandment) for Israeli's to kill on sight any knife wielding Muslim. Rabbi Yosef also stated that if the the Muslim does not have a knife, then he should be imprisoned with no parole until messiah comes, and then he shall be killed. The progression towards open, unrestrained warfare (the flood) could not be any clearer.

Anti-American radical leftists and their allies in St. Louis, MO.
Addendum: It now appears obvious that the coming storm will also envelope the United States in a confrontation between the radical Left, emboldened by the current Obama Administration and the two socialists of the Democrat Party seeking to succeed him, and the conservative Right. Above is an image of the enemy forces taken last Friday as they were assembling in St. Louis, Missouri. Notice who the friends of these anti-American leftists are.

The Radical Leftist violence and blatant assault on God-given Constitutional rights seen in recent days in Dayton, Ohio and Chicago, Illinois has been primarily directed towards the Trump presidential campaign. This is just the beginning of what is coming, and will move to confront other GOP candidates should Trump not win the nomination. The George Soros-funded anti-American leftist groups (such as MoveOn.Org and BlackLivesMatter for example) are openly telling their followers to donate money, plan, prepare and be ready for more of the same in the weeks to come. 

"...against all enemies, foreign and domestic. So help me God."

Of these two scenarios, which is more likely to happen: 1) The Globalists are successful in eliminating Nationalism and in establishing a One Government, One Religion, One Currency world order through the United Nations with the Antichrist as the head or 2) The Globalists turn out to be the puppets of the Antichrist and are overcome through deceit first and then through military might. In view of the fact that Christ will judge all Nations at the Second Advent it doesn't seem that the Globalists will be able to eliminate Nationalism. I am sure that there are other possibilities and I appreciate any light that you can shed on this for me. Thank you!

We are soldiers of Jesus. As I stand ready with Ephesians 6:10-18 as my source
to defend myself and family. As an Oath Keeper and 3% I will not submit to the forces of evil. "The Lord IS my shepherd..... He restores my soul".
I see the coming flood also, but wonder why many, many Christians continue to walk in world efforts to think any of the current political pundits will correct the path that the US is on. Bible tells us to watch and wait, also to look up for our redemption drams near. We should take that seriously and pray on our knees.
God Bless Sean, always enjoy your blog.

Our nation was dedicated to God by its founders. I believe that two of the reasons God raised up our nation was to provide a safe haven for the Jewish people, the apple of God’s eye, and to spread the Gospel throughout the world. The Holy Spirit has caused me to pray for our nation several times during the past few weeks, with an urgency that I have never experienced before. Since I am not unique in the Body of Messiah, many of you have probably been similarly called.

I believe that the Spirit of Truth is being poured out at this time, against which no weapon will prosper.

On the topic of eschatology, I’ve read commentary (can't recall exactly where) that the scripture indicates that there will be a last massive harvest of souls just before the Harpazo. I cannot recall the scripture that would support that, would appreciate if anyone can cite it. Assuming that concept is scriptural, it may be that the Spirit of Truth is being poured out on our nation and will be disseminated throughout the world as a final witness before the start of the 7th week. If that is the case, let’s all pray for a mighty move of the Spirit and explosion in the ranks of the Saints.

Sean Osborne said...


In all honesty you comment here is one of the best ever made, and I also concur with everything you stated.

Now I do not know if this will be before Harpazo or afterward, but I strongly suspect it is afterwards, but things will become so bad for the majority Ashkenazim Jews and the Sephardim here in the USA that the only refuge they will find able to avail themselves of is to make aliyah to Israel.

This is also why I fervently believe it is an essential Christian duty while we are here to protect this Constitutional Republic from those who hate and desire to destroy it. Our enemies have unquestionably been more engaged in this destructive agenda of theirs for the past 8 years than at any time in our history.

Yes, the sense of urgency is absolutely palpable. I also believe there will be a great outpouring of the Lord's Spirit just prior to the Harpazo and that will likely culminate in the literal fulfillment of Paul's key prophecy in Romans 11:25.

See also: Matthew 13:37-39, Luke 10:2 and John 4:35.

If anyone has ever followed Perry Stone's ministry, then the realization should be there's little doubt we're in the season of the "Barley (or Wind) Harvest." According to Ruth 1:22, in this harvest barley is caught up into the air and the shell is gently separated from the outer shell by the wind. This is a vivid image of the Harpazo; the wind is the Holy Spirit. The barley harvest occurs in the springtime, usually in the latter part of the month of April! Barley is one of the firstfruits brought forth from the earth.

After this there is the "Wheat (Tribulum) Harvest" where the hard shell of the wheat is forcibly removed by an animal-drawn board over a threshing floor, and this is followed by the "Grape (Crushing) Harvest" where the grapes are literally crushed underfoot.

I think we are seeing the final harvest... Iran, China, refugee camps IN the mid-east are exploding with an underground church right now. I even see a small but growing Messianic Jew growth in Israel!

Outside of that the words of Messiah don't tell us to look for a revival but the opposite in my understanding.

Words of Yeshua!
Mathew 24:4-14
Mark 13:4-13
Luke 21:7-19

And finally Paul.
2 Thessalonians 2:3

Hey Sean,
Just read an article titled, "Sanhedrin perform rare biblical commandment not seen
in 2000 years." You might want to take a look at it. The article was about making
their calendar right. Times, time and half a time. Since the article had to do
with making the right time, I think this might be important? Concerning Putin's
withdrawal from Syria, I don't believe a word he says!

Sean Osborne said...


Yes indeed, I was reading that article at the BIN website (BreakingIsraelNews.com) which sends out daily updates. I agree, I think this is very important! An absolute jaw dropper because I have stated in recent months that these next three years coming up on Israel's 70th Anniversary and 10th Shemittah in the land would witness some important if not extraordinary events occurring in Israel. This is the fist of them in my book!

For those who've not seen it yet, the article is about the mitzvah [commandment] found in Exodus 12:2 that God spoke to both Moses and Aaron. This is a mitzvah that even takes precedence over the Sabbath. Moses and Aaron were, quite obviously, the first two witnesses.

Two Witnesses. Ring a bell anyone?

"This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you."

This mitzvah establishes the first month of the calendar year, and is the basis for which the first Passover was performed.

Exactly ten days from the establishment of the first day of the first month of the year an unblemished male yearling lamb would be selected by every household in Israel, or two households if they were small households in number.

On the fourth day subsequent the entire assembly of Israel shall each kill their lamb precisely at twilight.Blood from the lamb would then be placed on the two door posts and lintel of the house in which the lamb was prepared by roasting it in fire, it was to be consumed completely that night. At morning whatever scraps remain were to be burned with fire.

Amazingly, this is the first time since the diaspora of the Jews by the Legions of Rome and the destruction of the 2nd Temple in 70 AD that this mitzvah has been performed in the State of Israel by witnesses in public. It occurred last Thursday, 10 March in Israel and marked the start of 1 Adar II, 5776.

I think what this mitzvah has just established is the setting of a times, time and half a time... a sequence of the Sanhedrin establishing the year that will continue until the Two Witnesses of the 70th Week ... I'm sure you know the rest and the significance of it.

In addition to that article on "Breaking Israel News" - Couple that with this...

"A global reading of the Shema, the declaration of accepting God’s rule, will be held on Wednesday, March 16th, at 9:00 pm, Israeli local time, 3:00 pm EST. The reading of the Shema will come directly after the much-anticipated consecration of the Torah scroll written for the Messiah, which will be celebrated on Mount Zion in Jerusalem."

“We shall pray, request, demand, and shout out to Our Father in Heaven:

-The entire Shema
-That we accept upon ourselves the yoke of Heaven
-That we demand the return of the Davidic dynasty
-That we wish to rebuild the Temple
-That we undertake to return to Hashem (God) in repentance as individuals and as a nation
-That we are awaiting our final redemption in mercy and with loving-kindness”.

Maranatha Adonai Yeshua!

Sh'ma Yisra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad.

This is another important declaration, and is one we can all participate in at 3PM EDT/12Noon PDT. This will be an advisory SITREP shortly.

Sean, during this seeming 'lull', it strikes me as a period of deception. Here's my timing thought about the U.S.- that because Trump or Cruz would indeed turn around our abject weakness, the period until early 2017 is the window to either strike or blackmail our once great country. Just given the 2028 bracket and the Mid-east war too, it seems to me that this could be the timing.

jmoll106 said...

Scipio, I know alot of people believe the USA is "not mentioned" in prophecy. All nations will participate including the U.S.
I think whoever comes against the U.S., even with the treasonous leaders we have right now, our attacker's would be in for a world of hurt.
The U.S. role will facilitate the rise of the A/C. IMHO.
I liked the question you asked because it really got me thinking and praying. Thanks. :)

Scipio said...

Thank you Sir! Yes, well Sean knows and we know that time is very short. Not many at all have a clue. But we can be a beacon.

Sean Osborne said...


The aura of a perceived "lull" of prophetic fulfillment is almost a tangible feeling for a lot of folks, and leads some to even deny that prophetic fulfillment is underway. However, in my view this is inherently deceptive in that everything going on in the world is playing an active role in coming prophetic fulfillment. This is the "big picture" view. At this late hour this is an absolute certainty that the "big picture" view is the one we must rely on in awaiting the Grooms coming for His Bride, and that which occurs in the 70th Week.

This is no different than the sum total of all the things which occurred in the Roman Empire and in the Middle East generally during generation from Christ's birth to 70 AD were directly involved in the fulfillment of Gabriel's prophecy to Daniel about that era. Again, this is a "big picture" view of events and the "stage setting" they create for prophetic fulfillment.

A new SITREP is being prepared which will touch on this theme.

Scipio said...

THANKS Sean; that's helpful. LOVE this Blog!
