|President-elect of the United States of America Donald J. Trump|
At this point, the fact of the matter is that the storm clouds are no longer approaching, they are upon us. Do not be deceived by Obama's saying that he has directed a smooth transition and transfer of power. That's all PR smokescreen. Our adversaries are simply not going to just walk away from the past eight years of moving their agenda forward. And please recall what I wrote as my comment in the previous SITREP on 1 November: "I'm in full 'expect the unexpected' mode from today to Veterans Day, Nov. 11th. Anything can and probably will happen, so I will expect it."
Beyond this, we also are very keenly aware that great changes must take place because the current global configuration is very close to, but not quite what Bible prophecy describes about the immediate and very short-term closure to the pre-70th Week era and the 70th Week itself. There will be no 'newspaper exegesis here; Eschatology Today is boldly stepping forward to identify these coming changes well in advance. The Trump Administration will not commence for another 70 days minimum. Cutting-edge, as it has been here from the beginning of Eschatology Today eight years ago.
Therefore, Eschatology Today has adopted the view that the Trump Administration will be a key - if not critical - change agent to this end. The role of the Trump Administration becoming a key change agent, particularly in the next two to four years, falls precisely in-line with expectations as outlined in previous SITREPs for Israel's 70th national anniversary as a nation (mid-2018). The Trump Administration four years down the road in 2020 will have effected or made great strides in all of these changes, and we know what they are in advance because Donald Trump has already told us what they will be.
Let us begin.
The Obaminazation of the United States Armed Forces of the United States will come to a screeching halt on Inauguration day, if not sooner. The Armed Forces of the United States will be rebuilt from the bottom up, taking a near hollowed-out and ideologically-driven PC force and turning it again into an all-volunteer world-class leading force, a force without equal on the planet.
NATO. Big, and we mean really big and dynamic changes are coming to NATO, and this will be in line with the changes that are coming to the EU itself, via the BREXIT (as another leading change agent in Europe) and coming FREXIT and the other wholesale regime changes coming to the current crop of European leaders.
The Merkel's and the Hollande's, et al, are all living on very limited and borrowed time, to borrow a phrase. Trump is right, NATO is obsolete and must be updated and so it shall be. These changes will be made manifest from the obvious changes coming to American foreign policy. It is inevitable and as sure as the sun rising tomorrow. European NATO partners are already on the path to paying their financial share of the force that NATO will be in the very near future.
Russia. Big changes coming here also, which along with those coming to NATO will make make more sense to us now of the prophetic statement made in Ezekiel 38:13. We should expect the kinds of changes in the US/NATO/Russia paradigm which this prophecy makes clear "must take place."
China. Relations with China means more big changes. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TTP) according to Trump's election platform is a target and therefore we can anticipate that it will be toast just as NAFTA will become toast. There's little doubt that these changes will accommodate the rapid rise of the prophetic "kings of the East.
Environment. "Climate Change" will also likely go the way of bell bottom pants during the Trump Administration.
Global Trade. Is there any doubt that global trade agreements will be scrapped and/or completely renegotiated. As a matter of course new spheres of influence and non-interference will be established all over the planet. This makes the rise of the "kings of the East" very observable even before this process begins in earnest. China, in the coming negotiations, will be given responsibility for "handling" North Korea. Who needs a rogue state armed with nuclear weapons on their border? Think regime change ala Bejing as a viable option; a swift coup to bring the madman in Pyongyang and his regime to an end.
Iran. This has been discussed in pretty clear terms in the virtual preemptive discussion that began yesterday in the comments section of this SITREP, so there no real need to re-hash those points again.
Islamic State and the War in Syria. The events next 70 days will determine much here, so it remains to be seen what the situation here will be when President Trump first takes his seat behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office. Whatever happens, the prophecies of Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49:23-27 will come to fulfillment.
Israel. Most importantly, the Trump Administration will be completely committed to Israel. In short, as stated here previously, America will once again bless Israel. The Lord's promise of Genesis 12:3 stands firm with America once again being Israel best and closest ally in the world. Therefore, the horrors of the past eight years for Israel brought on by the Obama Administration will end very abruptly on Inauguration Day. Perhaps even sooner as Eschatology Today believes is the truth of the behind-the-scenes matters and maneuvering.
Key item in all of these changes in the America-Israel dynamic is that American political intervention during Israel's military operations against Islamic terrorist organizations within and without her borders will be non-existent during the Trump Administration. And you know full well how Donald J. Trump feels about defensible borders. It's a no-brainer: all of the chatter about a "Palestinian state," well, in a Trump Administration and as they say in New York, fuggedaboutit.
That means one very important thing for Israel and the fulfillment of Bible prophecy: the political handcuffs which had been placed on the IDF's offensive military operations since 2009 will have been removed. The IDF will finally take care of business in Gaza, Judea and Samaria, the Sinai and even Lebanon. We're talking Psalm 83 here brothers and sisters. It will also come to fulfillment as sure as the sun's rising tomorrow.
UPDATE 11 November 2016: And speaking of "expecting the unexpected," a virtual 'black swan' event occurred immediately on the heels of President Trump's miraculous election victory early Wednesday morning. That same morning Russian President Vladimir Putin dispatched his Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev to Israel. Medvedev's first stop on Thursday (yesterday) was a visit to the Western Wall of Jerusalem.
However, even before the wheels of Medvedev's aircraft touched the tarmac in Israel word was flashed to Bibi Netanyahu and his cabinet of what the Russian Prime Minister had just stated was the official position of the Russian Federation:
"Our country has never denied the rights of Israel or the Jewish people to Jerusalem, the Temple Mount or the Western Wall."
When it comes to unexpected 'black swan' type events, this one is a really powerful stunner. The kind that you have to be sitting down for, and if you're not sitting down it will stop you dead in your tracks. The kind that makes you eyes pop and your brain to freeze in disbelief.
Consider for a moment the effect of this official statement of the Russian government upon the the Iranian Ayatollah and his existential threat to Israel, its people and Jerusalem. Or even more, its effect on both radical Sunni and Shi'a jihadists and so-called moderate Sunni Muslims and governments throughout the Middle East, and beyond to include within the Russian Federation itself. In Moscow!
Are you kidding me?! Expect the unexpected between November 1st and 11th I wrote to this blog. I think I'll be sitting down for the rest of the day today.
Oh, and happy Veterans/Remembrance Day.
Great news from halfway around the world. Looks like the man is moving fast to make good on his campaign promises. Nice also to see that Mr. Netanyahu was (I think) the first to get an invite to the WH. I heard that there was a standing ovation in the Dumas on the news also. Not sure if that's true or not - or what the significance could be. If true, I guess they just didn't like the alternative - understandable.
You've probably seen the attached (see the image above) - but it is an absolute knee-slapper the looks on the faces - in particular the Gatekeeper. She looks a bit menacing actually. One commenter noted that if he had a bunch looking at him like that, he would be marking the exits and keeping his gun hand free.
You are right - prayers are needed more than ever. Those 'magnanimous' speeches by Zero and Clinton were just maskirovka. They are seething and something is very definitely planned - more than just those stupid protests around the place.
I saw the news that Michelle Bachmann was involved in the nationwide and Jerusalem election night prayers and that the very minute they kicked off, the tide turned against the Clinton machine. The prayers of the righteous availeth much.
BTW - I am now dialoguing with Christian Aid Mission about possible link-up with our local evangelism activity here in Madagascar. Thanks once again for that referral.
Yours in Christ,
SG makes a strong point here in correctly using the Russian word maskirovka. This is the Russian word for military deception; it carries the literal meaning of masking. It also literally means deception via concealment, camouflage, and even includes deception by imitation with decoys and dummies.
This is where the above update regarding Russian PM Medvedev in Israel and at the Western Wall immediately comes to mind as a bald-faced example of maskirovka in real-time. The Russians know well President-elect Trump's position on Israel, and Jerusalem in particular. So within hours of Trump's electoral victory a Russian maskirovka operation commences inside Israel at the highest levels of government interaction, and goes so far as to include the statement quoted above regarding the nation, people, Jerusalem and even the Temple Mount. Maskirovka. Keep this word in mind, we're going to be seeing a lot more of it in coming days.
Unlike the Russians, the Obama WH Team as seen in the image above are unmasked, just like their ideological minions in colleges, universities and major city streets across that nation have unmasked themselves in the past couple of days. The Obama maskirovka also extends to the PR nonsense that is being shown on all US media of late in the sit down between President-elect Trump and outgoing President Obama. The faces in the image above above belie the photo op smiles and handshake between them we're seeing in the news. Keep fresh in your mind the third paragraph of this SITREP; it's 100% consistent with what SG has communicated via his email - and he could see it all the way from Madagascar. Thanks Steve.
