Global SITREP D11-16: The LORD God Blesses America to Bless Israel

President-elect of the United States of America Donald J. Trump
9 November 2016: As of this morning, a handful of states and district electoral college votes remain to be awarded. The lion's share of them will go to President-elect Donald J. Trump. The one and very obvious demographic segment of American voters not being fully recognized (as yet) by the corporate media for President-elect Trump's victory is ourselves, the bride of Christ. Approximately 90% of us voted for him. The will of the LORD God is done, but there's more to come, both good and bad because as our Lord said, "the end is not yet."

What's next? Eschatology Today precisely called the "what's next" eight months ago (back in March). What is occurring on college and university campuses and on the streets of several major American cities tonight is a surprise to no one who read and understood the Addendum of Global SITREP B1-16: The Approaching Storm Clouds. Everyone is hoping that we just move forward following the Trump election victory, and I would hope for that too, but our godless adversaries have a different agenda. That agenda is one of violent confrontation, and the blame for it can be laid squarely at the doorstep of the Obama Administration, its DoJ, the Clinton campaign and George Soros minions. 

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." 

Our enemies, both foreign and domestic, would be completely out of character to not at least try to take advantage of the current situation. Somewhere, somehow. There are thousands of illegals in this country; there are thousands of potential Islamic terrorists the current administration has admitted into communities all over the country. Do not fear these things, but be prepared for them. Expect the unexpected knowing full well that God is in complete control.

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.

Obama Team
One final note. SG lives and works half-way around the world on the island nation of Madagascar. He emailed me to say the following that I think should be shared because several of us have made similar comments.

Hi Sean;

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
 


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.

Wow Sean! The power of prayer and His Plan!!! It's really an angelic conflict, is it not?
Thanks for all that you do. The only nefarious thing Zero could do is 'create' an emergency which necessitates marshal law. (?)

Where did the comment come from that he committed himself to Messiah not long ago?

Sean,

It has been amazing honor to be part of the body who was willing to pray and fast and plead with our God to grant us a leader we need, rather than a leader we deserve. He has granted us His amazing grace, and now we need to press in even harder (!) as the forces of evil will be operating in full throttle mode. The fact that the media really has no clue what just happened is summed up in this verse from 1 Cor 1:27:

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

May His peace be upon us, and may we become bolder in these last days to be His hands and feet in the ripe harvest.

Ken,
It came from James C. Dobson back in June. However, Dobson was not the first to say this.

Franklin Graham said this past week that Trump accepted Jesus as Messiah in 2013 at Billy Graham's 95th birthday party as one of "many people" who did so that night. He accepted Billy Graham's personal altar call to accept Christ after a showing of his film "The Cross."

You're right on when you attributed Trump's victory to the Christian vote. Here's what Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, said earlier today about the election:

"Exit polling reported that (Trump) captured 81 percent of the evangelical vote -- exceeding the evangelical support for Bush, McCain and Romney," Perkins said. "In the third debate, Trump took on the partial-birth abortion issue, and I believe that's the moment he closed the deal with evangelicals and solidified their support."

Miriam said...

I was mulling all of this over, and it occurred to me that I can picture our new President elect leading a coalition from the "four winds" to carry out the prophecy against Elam in Jeremiah 49. It is not a fight he is looking for, but it is not something that he will shrink from either, if and when God calls upon him to act. I have a very hard time imagining that Hillary Clinton would have been willing to participate in that action. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I would think the Jeremiah prophecy will have to occur first before Israel fits the description of safety and security described in Ezekiel 38.

Sean Osborne said...

Brian,

In an earlier SITREP I spoke to the absolute need for a large turn-out of the bride of Christ for Trump that was not there in '08 or '12.

Data shows that 26% of Trump's nearly 60 million votes were evangelical/born again. That's a solid 15 million plus of us and precisely the number needed to ensure a Trump victory. Praise God.

Sean Osborne said...

Miriam,

Trump has been clear that the Iran deal will be enforced so strictly that it will fall apart in the process.

This speaks clear volumes about what happens afterwards, and this knowledge has leftists the world over wringing their hands today.

Trump won't get our money back, but he will enforce the deal upon Iran in a way they will not be able to abide with its terms and will default by walking away from it.

This might well bring together a US-led coalition to halt the restarted Iranian nuke program through military means as Jeremiah has prophesied.

hartdawg said...

OK Sean, here's another question that I been mulling over.
How does a trump presidency fit into Psalm 83? It seems to me that the final fulfillment of Psalm 83 has Israel standing alone, otherwise her enemies would be afraid to attack knowing that America would step in. It would seem to me that because of this song 83 whatever happened after the Rapture or Trump will turn on Israel or else Psalm 83 wouldn't happen until after Trump is gone I am confused on this can you help me?

I stayed all the way through last night and watched by way of bvov.com and it was great without the MSM's input! I was so tired but took cat naps off and on!

I cannot begin to praise our Abba Father enough for all that He has accomplished during all of this but even more! The main thing G we all have to carefully guard for is not to grow weary in well doing. I would love to relax somewhere on a sandy beach and listen to the waves moving to and from but it isn't time for that! SEAN said it best, do not let your guard down and keep on praying for all of this nation! Satan does not give up easily, any way or at any time.

Nora said...

Sean,

Firstly, praise the Lord!!! :)

Secondly, I have the same question concerning the concluding prophetic war(s) of Psalm 83 as Hartdawg. In the case of the Ezekiel 38 battle Israel will be on her own, helped by God in the end so America couldn’t be involved. As for the upcoming and concluding prophetic war(s) of Psalm 83, I don’t see clearly. I’ve always had the notion that the USA won’t be involved in those prophetic wars either. In that case and given how far geopolitical things (and other things as well!) prophetically progressed I’m wondering too.

I’d like to add one more thing. I also wonder if I’m the only one with the idea that now that Mr. Trump has won the elections and in case the Lord will use the involvement of America one more time to help and bless Israel, given how late the time is in the prophetical sense… is it a sensible thing to think that the Lord will use the Rapture to finally make an end to American involvement in the future prophetic (geo) political events (wars) involving Israel? Beyond destroying Iran’s nuclear facilities I mean, when the USA might be involved at the last time. Not to mention that maybe a relatively short era is coming now when things will really be “business as usual” when evil-globalist powers will be restrained temporarily, an era that will suddenly end with the rapture as Mr. Terry James pointed it out.

jmoll106 said...

I would venture to say if Trump backs Israel's declaration that Jerusalem is their Capital the arrows will begin to fly.

Sean Osborne said...

Hartdawg,

Israel's Psalm 83 enemies has never been afraid of American military intervention in the 68-year history of the war. Not in 1948, or 1967 or 1973 or even in the multiple actions in Lebanon and Gaza.

To the contrary, Israel's Psalm 83 enemies have always been able to count on the US using political leverage to restrain the IDF in its battles.

Beginning with the new Trump Administration this entire paradigm will no longer exist. The next act of the Psalm 83 war will be the last and complete the prophetic fulfillment.

Sean Osborne said...

Nora,

I don't interpret Ezekiel 38/39 as being just God unilaterally destroying the invading enemies. I interpret this as a limited nuclear world war which is initiated by the Magog Confederation.

Let me pose a question. If God is the sole power behind the defeat of the Magog Confederation, why is it then that immediately thereafter Israel fulfills Jesus' key prophecy of John 5:43 in accepting the human being Antichrist as their expected Mashiach ben David?

I've been discussing this coming fulfillment for some time now; think over my question and see if you still think the same way afterwards about this.

I just read this article and wanted to share it with you and our brothers and sisters on this blog. We have no doubt that God intervened in this election, but this article offers PROOF of HIS divine intervention. I wept when I read this.

Sandie in Ohio,

Hi and thanks for sending the report.

I have no doubt that the LORD has known from the beginning of time EXACTLY how many voters were needed and PRECISELY their geographic location with the USA for this election to be won via our electoral college system.

As the prayers went up the LORD acted through His Holy Spirit for every one of those voters to cast their ballots. He's known the end from the beginning.

Proof of this is seen in the fact that the same exact number of votes cast on Tuesday would have won the 2012 election. However, that kind of result was not within His plan for that time. His ways and means are prrfect because He is the LORD God. His will is done.

Hartdawg... see the "China" part for the NAFTA info you're looking for.

Sean,

As of news today we are seeing a LOT of how Trumps support of Israel or removal of constraints is going to move things down the road...

From:Breaking Israel News
Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin, contacted Breaking Israel News to announce that the election of Trump, who has promised to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, coupled with Putin’s expressed desire for the Temple to be rebuilt, prompted the Jewish court to send a letter offering the two the opportunity to act as modern-day Cyrus figures: non-Jewish kings who recognize the importance of Israel and the Temple.

From: Ynet News
Top Israel affairs advisor to president-elect Donald Trump tells Israel's Army Radio that the his boss doesn't share the long-held US stance that Israeli settlements should be condemned or they pose an 'obstacle to peace.'

From Jpost:
President-elect Donald Trump does not condemn Jewish building over the pre-1967 lines, nor does he believe in dictating the terms of any peace deal between the Israelis and Palestinian, a close legal advisor, Jason Greenblatt, told Army Radio on Thursday morning. “Mr. Trump does not view the settlements as being an obstacle for peace,” Greenblatt said.

From Daily Mail:
President-elect Donald Trump has invited Benjamin Netanyahu to the US for talks 'at the first opportunity'. The billionaire spoke with the Israeli prime minister on Wednesday morning hours after his stunning triumph over Hillary Clinton.

Rhonda said...

Wonderful update Sean. You completely switched my understanding of the Psalm 83
War and how it will finally conclude. I always thought Israel's surrounding enemies come against her for a final battle but you're saying the IDF can finally fight their adversaries on their terms not with the handcuffs put on by the Obama Admin and NATO. Is that right? This is when Israel gains the whole piece of land promised to
Abraham I believe. Am I correct in thinking that America only stands by and protests
the war described in Ezekiel because the bride of Christ is gone, the Rapture has already happened when Gog of Magog attack? I'm glad I was able to vote despite the pain and bruising from the accident. Thank you Sandie for sending that article and short video about the election. It made me cry!! Praise to our God who hears the prayers of His saints.

Hi Sean,

In your reply to Nora, you wrote this: "I don't interpret Ezekiel 38/39 as being just God unilaterally destroying the invading enemies. I interpret this as a limited nuclear world war which is initiated by the Magog Confederation."

Can you please explain why you don't believe this prophecy should be interpreted literally as written?

Thanks for the update on world events that the US and Trump administration will
take part in. One thing for sure is now American's can and will see rule of law, Biblical ethics and morality. We should no longer accept the gods of political correctness or the gods who are guardians of the diversity which defines who we are as a people.

Sean Osborne said...

Brian,

Can you answer the question I posed to Nora? If you can then you"re a step closer to understanding why I used the phrase "just God unilaterally..."

Also, Ezekiel 38:21 "I will call for a sword against Gog..." this is similar language as found in Jeremiah 49:34-39 where He says "Against Elam I will bring the four winds...I will send the sword after them."

These phrases invoke some human military action in the Divine judgment being meted out.

This is all pre-70th Week. And that's where my question becomes quite relevant in intrepreting these prophecies.

Anonymous said...

A short answer to your question, Sean, is the Jews sign the peace treaty with the Antichrist because at that moment in time they are still unsaved and living in the land in unbelief. There's a longer answer I'll post later about what's happening in the Gog of Magog war that I think will explain why, if the passage is read literally, it cannot be a conventional or nuclear war scenario.

- Brian from Florida

Sean Osborne said...

Brian,

The question was "Can you please explain why you don't believe this prophecy should be interpreted literally as written?" You have assumed that the interpretation I hold to is not a literal one. I assure you it is quite literal and in accordance with the text as written.

By the Holy Spirit, my understanding is that God uses ALL means at His sovereign disposal in sending His judgment against the Magog Confederation.

This act of our sovereign God is just as He has done with the rebirth of Israel in disbelief into the latter and last days of this world as we have known it.

When it comes to literal interpretation as written, does everyone accept absolutely and without reservation that the prophetic rebirth of the State of Israel described in Ezekiel 37 literally came from reanimated dry bones in a valley?

OR does the literal text of Ezekiel 36:24-38 explain the literal text metaphors that appear in Ezekiel 37? Common theme here: the Word of God interprets the Word of God, and therefore the literal interpretation of Ezekiel 37 is given in the preceding text of chapter of Ezekiel 36.

Consider a literal interpretation of Ezekiel's prophecy (which I believe the bride of Christ must bear witness to as a certifiable fact): The past 68 years of modern Israel's existence are LITERALLY standing between the single sentence text of Ezekiel 36:24 and the single sentence text of Ezekiel 36:25.

Read these two sentences for yourselves.

So, who would deny this literal interpretation that I hold to regarding Ezekiel 36:24-25?

Accordingly, we all know as accepted fact or have seen with our own eyes that modern Israel (per the literal text of Isaiah 66:8 in a single day - May 14, 1948) was born of the LIVING remnant of Israel that came out of the Nazi holocaust of WWII, as well as the LIVING diaspora which came from gentile nations the world over - tens upon tens of thousands via 20th Century ships and modern fixed wing aircraft -- even to this very day.

So too are the 5th Century texts of Ezekiel 38/39 written in metaphorical or symbolic terms that must be interpreted within the context of the very literal reality of our 21st Century.

Where Ezekiel describes these invading armed forces are ALL riding horses and are ALL equipped with the warfighting implements of 2,500 some odd years ago (swords, spiked and scaled shields of crocodile hides) -- is that what will truly happen?

Ezekiel 38:21-22 "And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone."

Here the Lord calls for a sword (chereb - a human cutting weapon of war) against him (Gog) throughout all of God mountains (the whole earth consists of God's mountains) and every man's chereb (weapon of war) shall be against his brother (a world war among men who are all the descendants of Shem, Ham and Japheth).In Ezekiel 39:6 God sends 'esh (all consuming fire) upon Magog, the land of Gog, and upon those who inhabit other lands with a false sense of security.

This great conflagration sets the stage for the fulfillment of Daniel 9:27.

Miriam said...

Good morning Sean, in regards to the Ezekiel passage about dry bones, I completely agree about it being a metaphorical image (and I think that's how most biblical scholars interpret it, at least the ones I have read) but I will also say that the Bible is true on so many levels and dimensions, many of which I'm sure we are all presently unable to even perceive, that it may very well be literal as well. We have never personally witnessed what will happen when the graves of the saints are opened before we are changed and Harpazoed. That will truly be something to behold!

Also I think the musings I put forth some time ago about Putin possibly being a genuine supporter of Israel/having genuine affection for Jews because of events in his early life seem to be bearing out. Trump was an improbable person to most of us human beings to be chosen for the purpose for which God determined to use him, and Putin appeared equally (if not more) improbable to be a facilitator of blessing Israel and rebuilding the Temple, but in Isaiah 45 God warned us that we are pieces of broken clay amongst the broken clay on the ground and we are not to argue with the potter :-)

I have a hard time imagining what will happen after the whole Temple rebuilding thing has taken place to cause Russia to want to lead an invasion of Israel, but it may be that, as in Egypt, a new Pharaoh/Russian leader may arise who did not know Joseph/Putin. And with the acceleration of events, all of this may play out rather quickly; it certainly seems unlikely that it will take place over the course of multiple generations like the Exodus did. Of course this is nothing but speculation from a mother of 3, so please take it for what it's worth :-)

Another thing that has been on my mind is the passage I've quote before from Isaiah 47 about Babylon that I have the sense applies to HRC, in the same way Isaiah 45 applies to Trump. If Isaiah 47 does apply to HRC, that passage has not reached its final conclusion yet, but will in the days to come. That will be interesting to watch. I have seen comments that indicate that the Soros-funded riots that have occurred are part of a tactic designed to try to get Trump to "go easy" on the departing Clintons and the Obamas for their crimes, the rule of law be damned. Our President Elect is a skilled and seasoned negotiator who has already faced down multiple seemingly impossible situations in his private business career. God has prepared him for this time and season. If the Isaiah 47 passage is a true analogy that is applicable to HRC, I do not believe Mr. Trump will comply.



Wills Kitchen said...

Sean,

There are leading Jewish Rabbis who are beginning to say as of the past few days that they believe the election of President Trump to be the herald of the coming of their messiah. The nature of their statements gives the reader the sense that they believe that coming to be in the near term and not the far. I can't recall any of their names nor can I find links to the articles again at this time. But their statements sent a chill down my spine! Its as if the whole world knows Jesus is coming back soon but only those who are His people will testify to it. I know that Jews, in Judaism, are looking for a Messiah who is not Jesus but they will be surprised to find that it is. In their own unbelief, they confirm that Word of God.

Miriam said...

Very interesting addition to the posting, Sean. Honestly, if this is a military deception on the part of the Russians, I'm having a hard time even imagining the repercussions as you have described. We are blessed to have this blog and contributors who understand the implications to help us understand.

jmoll106 said...

It's very interesting that both the USA and Russia are supporting Israel's right to Jerusalem just about 70 years ago when they both recognized her rebirth as a nation.
I read on BIN that when Putin visited Israel he went to the western wall and prayed and when asked he said he was praying for the temple to be rebuilt. Now we have another visit by Russia.
These are surely momentous times to behold with our eyes.
Thanks for the update.

Nora said...

Sean,

I took some time to think. Meanwhile, the additional comments helped as well. I can accept your description as a fitting interpretation. I’ve always interpreted the part about the people of the invading Gog-Magog armies turning against each-other that the mind of the invaders will be messed up by the Lord and they turn their weapons against each other. However, the part of Scripture about the AC making peace with MANY… the Gog-Magog forces will be totally annihilated and Israel stands there as sole victor… but if other nations aren’t involved then how will the AC make peace among many? It can only happen if a limited WW happens where other nations are involved too, I concluded, as you described it. One thing is still unclear though. The Lord says that in the Ezekiel 38/39 battle He will make Himself and His glory known to Israel and to the nations of the world. I’ve always interpreted it that there will be a big miraculous, supernatural intervention on His part. Among the carnage of this limited world war, how will the world and how will Israel see the Lord’s glory and His help on their side? Because of this battle’s victorious conclusion secular Israel will turn back to their old covenant relationship with the Lord, wanting the 3rd Temple as well. (Many of them want a temple even now but it’s still not on a “national” level if I know that right.)

Sean,

I was looking at the election results and I noticed that Trump stands at 306 Electoral Votes, compared to 206 for Romney 4 years ago. Exactly 100 more!

According to this page, adding 100 to a number means "The Power of 'Messiah-in-you' to accomplish a task."

Nora,

Yes, you clearly understand the finer eschatological points made in my responding comment of November 11 4:52 AM.

You understand, "The Lord says that in the Ezekiel 38/39 battle He will make Himself and His glory known to Israel and to the nations of the world" which is the issue raised in my original question of November 10th:

"If God is the sole power behind the defeat of the Magog Confederation, why is it then that immediately thereafter Israel fulfills Jesus' key prophecy of John 5:43 in accepting the human being Antichrist as their expected Mashiach ben David?"

Ezekiel's prophecies from 36/37 to 38/39 to 40-44 are a literal and sequential account of Israel's rebirth, the brief and extremely violent Gog of Magog conflagration, and the building of the 3rd Temple afterwards. And this is the start of the 70th Week.

At the conclusion of the pre-70th Week Magog war and the utter annihilation of those enemies, God says in Ezekiel 38:23 "Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.”

And in 39:7 God says, "So I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel, and I will not let them profane My holy name anymore."

And finally in Ezekiel 39:21-29 God itemizes in a recap all of the objective results of this pre-70th Week war and announces them in sequence:

 “21 I will set My glory among the nations; all the nations shall see My judgment which I have executed, and My hand which I have laid on them. 22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day forward. 23 The Gentiles shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity; because they were unfaithful to Me, therefore I hid My face from them. I gave them into the hand of their enemies, and they all fell by the sword. 24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions I have dealt with them, and hidden My face from them.”’
25 “Therefore thus says the Lord God: ‘Now I will bring back the captives of Jacob, and have mercy on the whole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for My holy name— 26 after they have borne their shame, and all their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, when they dwelt safely in their own land and no one made them afraid. 27 When I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and I am hallowed in them in the sight of many nations, 28 then they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them captive any longer. 29 And I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,’ says the Lord God.”

Yet Israel (in fulfillment of Jesus' words in John 5:43) and the world at-large immediately receive and follow the antichrist, and the false prophet, who has the men of the earth during the 70th Week manufacture the image of the beast that will stand in the Holy Place of the Temple. Indeed in this very same and short span of time the Two Witnesses begin their 42-month ministry, and the 144,000 Jewish evangelists begin their global work in bring the saints of the 70th Week to faith in Christ Jesus.

So. my interpretive understanding of all this is that the Lord's pronouncements on the results of the destruction of the Magog Confederation invaders come to their literal fulfillment not immediately, but during and as a result of the events of the 70th Week also.

So I'm seeing these articles surfacing, some saying that they're going to try to sidestep the electoral college and go with the popular vote, others are saying that the electors, they're calling them "faithless electors" are going to vote against their state on December 19th and it goes on and on. I looked more carefully and some of these articles are from 2007. Can you believe this deception?

Sean, thank you so much for spelling that out in detail. I have turned that part of scripture over in my mind for years, and have been unable to reach a conclusion about the timing of the last section. What you have written really makes the most sense to me, and it is consistent with patterns in the rest of scripture, for example the section of Isaiah 61 that Jesus read in the Temple, omitting the end of that passage. Jesus proclaimed that the first part was fulfilled that day in their sight. By his omission, we understand the last part of that section will not be fulfilled until Jesus has returned to set up His kingdom on earth.

I have a few unrelated comments: I was just on my way home from an errand, thinking about our current state of affairs and what the people behind Zero and HRC are trying to accomplish with their paid rioters, and I think the Holy Spirit brought something to my mind - I think Trump is going to let this unwind/call their bluff, and they will be forced to speak out and call the rioters off/take action against them in support of Trump's status as our next duly elected President. In the case of Zero, this will be a precise analogy to this passage from the book of Esther 6: 11 So Haman got the robe and the horse. He robed Mordecai, and led him on horseback through the city streets, proclaiming before him, “This is what is done for the man the king delights to honor!” We will see if this comes to pass.

Also in regards to Putin, I still think (hope maybe, for his sake) that it is possible that he is genuine in his support for Israel and the Jewish people. Undoubtedly many in his government do not share that perspective, but he is extremely popular with the Russian people so they are going along with him for now. If Putin is personally sincere, then he will be removed at some predetermined point in time, in advance of the Gog Magog war. That's another thing we'll have to wait and see about. I have no vested interest in this either way, other than wanting to see the Lord's will done.

My last comment this afternoon is that all of us believers should continue to keep our President and Vice President elect in our prayers for the continued protection, favor and wisdom of God as they prepare to govern so many of His people.

As stated before, the Globalists will stop at nothing.

I'm up early this morning and there is an article that I just read regarding our nation's fiscal management that I think may interest some of us here: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2016/11/12/most-americans-dont-know-about-president-obamas-uniparty-slush-fund/#more-124485 Sean, if this article is off topic I will understand if you decide not to post.

There's gonna be a whole lotta Trumpenstroken going on!

Wills Kitchen,

It was noted here a long time ago that simultaneous with the bride of Christ being imminently expectant of our promised blessed hope of Jesus' coming in the clouds for our Harpazo...

there are the Orthodox Jews who are just as expectant of the imminent coming of their Moshiach ben Yosef followed by Moshiach ben David... the Jewish messianic age...

And the Muslims of the Shi'a sect who are just as expectant of the coming of their Imam al Mahdi... and the Sunni sect which believes today their Mahdi has arrived with his Khalifa in Syria and Iraq...

all three believe we are in the "end times."

But it is ONLY the bride of Christ which believes in the absolute Truth of the prophetic Word of God.
