Global SITREP C3-17: Stage-Setting for the pre-70th Week Flood of Prophetic Fulfillment


President Trump at the Western Wall


24 May 2017: CJTF-OIR has attempted to place an embargo on news coming out of its control zone in the al-Tanf/al-Walid border crossing Area of Responsibility (AoR). The last item reported by Kurdish NRT news about 48 hours ago was that Norwegian special forces had taken control of securing the Syrian side of the border. Aside from that there have also been several propaganda reports from dubious Russian sources (Sputnik and RT) which are worthless and will never be repeated here. 

The New York Times published a report yesterday dateline from Al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar, but not surprisingly it reads as if it were not an American news agency but that of a Globalist Corporate News Entity, and that's par for the course. 

More recent is a Gulf News report which appeared this morning (24 May) and was updated as this update is being composed. The Gulf News report confirms the original 21 May portion of this SITREP that a "battle is brewing between the US-backed forces and Iran-backed troops over who will control a strategic section of the 599km Syrian-Iraqi border."   And "But Iranian-backed Shiite militias such as the Iraqi Hashed Shaabi and the Lebanese Hezbollah were deployed on May 6 to grab territory south of Al Bukamal, which is important to Iran as it is the only land route to Syria, Lebanon and ultimately, the Mediterranean Sea." This region is the northern portion of the corridor discussed below. This linked report is worth the time to read for the details it contains, further corroborating what is reported below and in SITREP C2-17 Part V.


21 May 2017:When U.S. President Trump arrived in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia he personally began the process of cementing the pre-70th Week 'last days' military alliance we know from Ezekiel 38:13 as "Sheba, Dedan the merchants of Tarshish and all their young lions."  And to make no mistake, this Arab-Western military alliance has as its current primary military foe the Islamic Republic of Iran. But there's more, much more to see here in terms of a prophetic flood of fulfillment (Dan. 9:26c) and the real-world scenario which is currently the driving force for that fulfillment.

The battle which has just begun in southern Syria at the al-Tanf/al-Walid border crossing between Syria and Iraq and within 50 miles of the Jordanian-Iraq border crossing at Trebil is one in which Iranian generals have ignored Russian generals advice to avoid. Therefore, Iran is the driving force behind this battle being engaged against the western allies (Combind Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve or CJTF-OIR) because it is imperative to maintain its strategic Tehran-to-Beirut corridor. This corridor is a direct overland route from Tehran to Baghdad to Damascus to Beirut, a corridor which the Iranian mullahs eventually wish to terminate in Jerusalem. 


The Iranian Dream - Overland Corridor from Tehran to Beirut
Having Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR) controlled territory to the north (de-facto Kurdistan) and to the south at the Syria-Iraq-Jordan border region poses a very high risk tactical threat to the Iranian's military ability to maintain this corridor. Therefore, in the view of Eschatology Today, the current battle is the first or preliminary military engagement of the Jeremiah 49:34-39 prophecy, as well as what has been discussed in the preceding SITREP C2-17 Part V and its role in the impending fulfillment of Isaiah 17.  

The Iranian's see this military threat in terms of the executive order President Trump gave to U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), and thus to NATO, to encircle the Islamic State's remaining territory and de-facto capital at Raqqa, Syria in order to cut off all jihadists escape routes and to "annihilate" the Islamic State (the remaining remnant of Saddam Hussein's military) once and for all. The wrench in this plan of action is the IRGC-Hezbollah militia force now pressing its attack on the Operation Inherent Resolve base of operations at al-Tanf. 

Following the meetings with the leaders of "Sheba and Dedan" President Trump will stop in Israel, and then move on the the NATO and "Ezekiel Summit" in Brussels, Belgium next week. Without any doubt updates will result from these meetings and ongoing ground warfare.

Global SITREP C2-17: The Syrian Situation Revisited Part V

USAF F-22 Raptor stealth fighter

UPDATED 20 May 2017:
  Confirmed. American strike aircraft (F-22 Raptors) struck a convoy of mixed Iranian IRGC-led militia from Iraq and Lebanese Hezbollah forces on Highway 2 as they approached the important Operation Inherent Resolve cross-border base at al-Tanf, Syria and Al-Walid, Iraq. Some media have incorrectly reported the convoy was pro-Assad Syrian military. However, audio and video reports from the region as well as intercepted communications from the convoy indicated the distinctive Iraqi Arabic dialect of the Shi'a Kataib Imam Ali militia who are led by IRGC officers.


The IRGC-led Iraqi militia and Hezbollah forces (both Shi'a) were warned repeatedly by US-led Coalition forces to halt their advance at the Zarqa-Al Shalighm crossroad. When the convoy passed this crossroad they were immediately struck by American aircraft. According to an IHS James report, "the coalition carried out an airstrike at the Zarka road junction 37 km from Al-Tanf, destroying four tanks, a ZSU-23-4 self-propelled anti-aircraft gun, and 12 other military vehicles. It said the airstrike was carried out in co-ordination with the Jaysh Maghawir al-Thawrah (Revolution Commandos Army) rebel group."

Location of the Al-Tanf,Syria and/Al-Walid, Iraq border crossing

The US also informed Russia that its allies were not to cross the crossroad and enter into the previously established Al-Tanf de-confliction zone where Coalition military operations against Islamic State forces were in progress. According to multiple international reports, about 3,000 Hezbollah troops were pulled from their positions on the Lebanese-Syrian border to participate in a push to re-take eastern Syria to the Iraqi border. These troops are integrated into the larger force approaching al-Tanf which reportedly numbers close to 10,000 troops.

Both British and US special forces have been deployed at the Al-Tanf base of the Jaysh Maghawir al-Thawra (Revolutionary Commandos Army) (RCA) and New Syrian Forces (NSF) since August 2016. The NSF are former Sunni members of the Syrian Arab Army's 30th Division who defected to anti-Assad opposition forces at the start of the civil war. The NSF were organized as a component of the Free Syrian Army by the US-led Coalition in October 2015.


17 May 2017: Looking forward a few days, we have President Trump leaving the country for a visit with Saudi Arabian leaders (Sheba and Dedan), then to Israel for a meeting with Netanyahu, a visit to the Western Wall of Temple Mount, a potential joint IS-Israel announcement stating that now is not the right time to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem. The the itinerary takes President Trump to a NATO meeting that will be immediately followed by another "Ezekiel Summit" (see: Part III). In all of this, the walk-back on the embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is one of the more serious issues. This is because it could cause almost irreparable damage among Trump's Conservative-Evangelical political base at a time he can least afford to lose any support much less this core constituency. Nevertheless, the LORD's will is being done, and we can expect the unexpected to occur.

15 May 2017: The two nuclear-armed (US and Russia) opposing armed force coalitions in Syria now appear to be engaged in operations designed to seize and hold territory. This is conventional warfare as we have known it for millennia. The real danger here is the allies with each coalition could engage each other in combat, either deliberately or by accident and particularly in southern and western Syria. In the skies overhead a free-for-all dogfight could also occur between the two sides combat aircraft. And then there's the continuing Iranian-Hezbollah drive to seize the Syrian side of the Golan. This is all stage-setting for the major conflagration this series on the Syrian Situation has been highlighting according to Bible prophecy (Isaiah 17; Jeremiah 49:23-27).


Going further back, Eschatology Today noted years ago in its interpretation that the region of northwest Jordan, were many of the US-led coalition are based, equates to "The cities of Aroer" found in Isaiah 17:2. This entire region is to be abandoned from human habitation, either by radioactive fallout or chemical-biological warfare. Not much else could cause such wholesale desolation of human life - or military forces. This is tied to the "woe" which leads off the two verses of Isaiah 17:12-13, where the nations have rushed in like mighty waters, only to have God rebuke them all and they are forced to flee far away. Isaiah 17:14 tells us this (ballahah) dreadful event will occur between a single evening ('eth 'ereb) and daybreak (boqer) of the following day. Yet this is nothing new to those who've been studying Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49:23-27 since the interpretation of these prophecies were brought to your attention on Eschatology Today.
 Golan Heights, Israel Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon border region

6 May 2017:
Here's how Eschatology Today assesses the current situation in Syria. 

Mortal men who stand as the current leadership of two nations which have a near-term God-breathed prophetic date with destiny (Russia and Iran per Jeremiah 49:34-39 and Ezekiel 38-39) have declared "safe zones" in a third nation, which also has a God-breathed prophetic date with destiny which culminates in the annihilation of its capital city and the remainder of the nation as a whole (Syria per Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49:23-27). 

The declaration of the "safe zones" was made in a fourth nation (Kazakhstan) which is almost certain to be part of the confederation of nations discussed in the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-39. A fifth nation, which may or may not be part of that same confederation of nations, has declared itself as a guarantor of the "safe zones." 

What we have here in this current situation brothers and sisters are the declared words of mere men who neither know nor recognize our Father in Heaven versus the very Word of our eternal, all-knowing, omnipotent God. It's a no-brainer of a contest. A no brainer. And we are witnesses to this non contest. What will occur was declared by our God thousands of years ago in the aforementioned prophetic texts. If you know them, then you do in fact know the details of near future events. it is as simple as that.

This "safe zone" declaration was yesterday's news and was set to commence this morning in Syria. Today's news is that Russia included in these "safe zones" a "no fly" provision which ostensibly bans only US, Israel and other coalition allies aircraft from conduction combat missions in Syria. 

This Russian dictated no-fly provision has been rejected by the United States, our allies, and I strongly suspect, the State of Israel. What we now have here brothers and sisters is a ready-made flash-point inside Syria between the Western Allies, which includes Israel, and the likely members of the Ezekiel 38-39 military confederation. I think you all very well comprehend what this flash-point may lead to, and you know this simply because you have read Jeremiah 49:23-27 and Isaiah 17.

Breaking News Alert: President Trump's Greatest Political Blunder

🔺 19 May 2017: This alert is about a realization I had last evening; you won't find it in any media reporting, none that I am aware of anyway. And it doesn't really matter if any such reports of this nature exist, because this is something that appeared in my own thoughts seemingly from nowhere, out of the blue, literally.

Remember back to the 9th of October 2016 when presidential candidate Donald J. Trump was on-stage with candidate Hillary R. Clinton during the second of that series of debates? Millions upon millions around the planet saw it live and in living color. And what candidate Trump said directly to Hillary not only got her attention (her eyes widened noticeably), but also the attention all of those arrayed against Trump's candidacy no matter how improbable a Trump win seemed at that time; his statement had the effect of being a promise as well as a declaration of war against the former Clinton Administration first lady and United States Secretary of State.

"If I win, I am going to instruct my Attorney General to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation. Because there has never been so many lies, so much deception. There has never been anything like it. And we are going to have a special prosecutor."
Then what happened within single-digit days of Trump's winning the election? He backed down. He showed no spine. He showed incredible weakness. He let Hillary, the DNC, the State Department, the Clinton Foundation, and any where else conceivable to a special prosecutor "to look into your situation" off the hook. What the President might have thought was a show of sheer magnanimity by the victor over the vanquished was, in fact, his greatest political blunder. It was a get out of jail free blunder that all of Trump's political enemies then seized upon and have ridden like an unbroken stallion trampling his Administration over and over and over again. 

Instead of Hillary, her allies and Obama Administration leftovers keeping their heads very low, perhaps even hiding under their desks deep in The Swamp, they have come out and used this epic blunder to seize the initiative in order to hobble the Trump Administration at every turn. From calls that the election was stolen, that it was interfered with by Russian agents in collusion with Trump campaign aides, to calls for Trump's impeachment, this one post-election epic blunder made all of this ongoing political charade and national insanity possible. 

To top this epic blunder off, President Trump referred to Hill and Bill as "good people" and "I don't want to hurt them." The truth is that nothing could be further from the truth about the Clinton's, from Arkansas to Emailgate.  The Donald promised to drain the Swamp, instead he fed himself to the resident crocodile.

Breaking News Alert 08-17: FBIDIR Comey Firing Stuns Washington Establishment

🔺 10 May 2017: The sudden "You're Fired!" directive from President Donald J. Trump to FBI Director James B. Comey, albeit long overdue, took the Washington D.C. establishment (i.e. the "Swamp") by total surprise. Their surprise was such that the Washington establishment has been literally stunned in such a way that fear and trepidation is now sweeping through their ranks like a wildfire. Draining the swamp may now have finally commenced with Comey's dismissal. And if anyone thought that this POTUS would go along to get along with the Washington elite establishment (i.e. the US branch of the global oligarchy) - think again. This is not a shot across their bow, this is a torpedo amidships and the battle that ensues will be something America has not seen since the mid-1860s.

Global SITREP C3-17: The Harpazo


8 May 2017: I was researching something and came across what may be a very important article by Don Koenig (The Prophetic Years) with an included excerpt by the late Jack Kelley (GraceThruFaith). I could not wait to post this find much longer than I have, which as of right now is four hours.

The crux of this 2009 article is about how the Harpazo (Rapture) of the bride of Christ might well occur on a Pentecost Sunday. This struck me immediately as something I had not considered before, primarily because I'm one of those who always thought the Harpazo would occur on the Feast of Trumpets. After reading this article and Jack Kelley's excepts on the topic and knowing that the Revelation 12 sign occurs this September... well, the hair stood up on my forearms! Jesus was right, He will come for us when we least expect it, or at least when I had least expected it.

So, I immediately looked at Pentecost Sundays going forwards from this year to 2021. Here's what I found. Pentecost occurs this year on June 4th. In 2018 on May 20th. In 2019 of June 9th. in 2020 on May 31st, and in 2121 on May 23rd. This is keeping with no one knowing the day or the hour except the Father, so no one accuse me of date setting.

Here's some interesting points made to whet your appetite for doing some personal Berean research on this subject.  Pentecost always occurs 7 weeks following Resurrection Sunday (I do not call it Easter). So on the 8th Sunday every year following Resurrection Sunday Pentecost Sunday occurs. 

Pentecost occurs on the same day as the Festival of Weeks, Shavuot in Judaism, which is also known as the Festival of the Harvest. (If that's not a subtle hint, I don't know what one is.) The word Pentecost comes from the Greek Pentecostos, meaning 50. Jesus promised the Holy Spirit, and the Spirit came down and the bride of Christ was created on the 50th day after Our Lord's Ascension. The anniversary of the start of the Six Day War on June 5, 1967 marks its 50th occurrence this year. It was during the Six Day War in 1967 in which Israel took control of all of Jerusalem. The day prior to this year's anniversary beginning on Monday, June 5 is the Pentecost Sunday noted above. Just something interesting to which I actually attach no significance, its just something interesting at this point.

Enoch of the Old Testament was born on the day that would become Pentecost. Enoch was Harpazoed into Heaven by God on his birthday. Pentecost occurs smack dab in the middle of the six other. It is the day that Moses received the Law on Mt. Sinai from God. Pretty significant day down through the ages, all things considered!  There is only one embedded link above and I urge everyone to check it out. Here also is the link to Jack Kelley's full May 2015 article as well:

Soon and Very Soon indeed!

Marana'tha!

Global SITREP C1-17: The Hand of God in Current Events

SpaceX's Falcon Heavy: The World's Most Powerful Rocket

2 May 2017: I see the hand of God in the above image, and this SITREP is to tell you why. 

The Islamic Republic of Iran, and now in a time of crisis, the Democratic People's Republic of (North) Korea, have been doing their utmost to build rockets capable of carrying nuclear warheads on a one-way flight to one or more targets roughly 10,000 to 12,000 miles away. These two nations have been engaged in this joint endeavor, respectively, for 32 and 33 years to date. More than three decades, and they still have not quite mastered the one-way long range ICBM.

On the other-hand, I look at a start up company - not a nation state mind you like Iran or North Korea - but a start up company we know as SpaceX. SpaceX was founded as a private commercial enterprise in 2002 whose goal it has been to revolutionize space technology. In just 15 years the SpaceX company has not only built rockets capable of lifting heavy loads into space, but it also lands the launch vehicle back on the same launch pad, even when that launch pad is nothing more than a large barge floating at sea.

SpaceX Falcon-9 rocket after its recovery landing on an ocean-going barge.

SpaceX has advanced to the point where, as seen in the image above, it is building the most powerful rocket in the world, the Falcon Heavy. Designed not to carry nuclear warheads, but far more peaceful missions like carrying human beings to the Moon and Mars, and beyond to the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, and back again. A mission to the moon is planned for next year.

This is where i see the hand of God technologically restraining diabolically evil nations bent on the wholesale mass destruction of fellow human beings, and at the same time allowing for the incredible progress that enable peaceful forays of His creation mankind into the solar system He created.

You see, the Holy Bible says nothing prohibitive about mankind and space exploration. AnswersinGenesisdotorg wrote about this. One of the key points in their article is that Psalm 8:3 declares the sun, moon and stars (planets, stars and galaxies) are the works of God's fingers, and a couple verses later (verse 6) this text says God made man to have dominion over the works of God's hands!

On the other hand the Bible says very specific, thou shall not things about cold-blooded murder.  Knowing the future from even before the beginning of time itself, God knows the evil that countries like Iran and North Korea intend, and with respect to Iran He spoke to the prophet Jeremiah about what He would do to prevent Iranian "arrows" from flying.

Yes, I see the hand of God in all these things. He is in total control.

Global SITREP B10-17: The Syrian Situation Revisited Part IV


Smoke rises from Al-Quneitra with Mt. Hermon as a backdrop.
UPDATE 28 April 2017: There is enough corroborating foreign media OSINT available to report that an Israeli fire mission also occurred early this week (Monday, 24 April) as another warning to Tehran, Damascus and Moscow. The IDF fired three high-precision ground-to-ground missiles from a position on the Golan destroying a Hezbollah armory within the al-Fawwar camp just outside of Quneitra, Syria.  

The al-Fawwar camp has been manned by Hezbollah-trained, pro-Assad conscripts known as (Syrian) National Defense Forces, or 'the Golan troop.' The three IDF missiles struck the intended target causing multiple high-order secondary explosions which obliterated the Hezbollah armory. It is also important to note that due to Moscow's failure to make any attempt to rein in the IRGC-commanded militias and Hezbollah forces closing in the Golan border the IDF missile strike occurred without Israel using the established hot line to inform Russian military forces in Syria of the fire mission it launched. In other words, IDF ground forces (Northern Command) are not communicating with Russian ground forces in Syria. Such silence equates to overt hostility.

Later in the day yesterday the IDF fired a Patriot air defense missile which intercepted and destroyed a probable Iranian drone that had just penetrated into Israeli airspace from Syria. In addition there a newspaper reports from Beirut, Lebanon stating the Syria has prepared four Scud missiles with half-ton warheads for launching against targets in Israel without warning. The situation on the Northern Front is currently as dangerous and unpredictable than it has been in decades.

27 April 2017: It has now become abundantly clear that the retreat of Syria's best remaining combat aircraft northward to Hmeimim Air Base leaves the whole of southern Syria open to Israel's best fighter aircraft, of which the F-35I 'Adir' is now firmly established at the top of the IAF's power pyramid. 

Early this morning there occurred a series of at least 5 major explosions followed by a huge fireball at the Damascus International Airport. Eschatology Today assesses that the only Israeli aircraft which could have conducted this stealthy strike would be the F-35I. No one saw them arrive, or leave, No Syrian or Russian air defense reaction occurred. 

There is also the near-admission of responsibility for this strike by Israeli Intelligence Minister, Yisrael Katz, who stated during an Israel Army Radio interview today, "We are acting to prevent the transfer of sophisticated weapons from Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon by Iran." Hezbollah's al-Manar radio agreed with Minister Katz in its own report.

We have known in recent month about Israel keeping close tabs on the Iranian/Hezbollah military advances on the slopes of Mt. Hermon and toward Quneitra on the Golan. This advance is intolerable from the Israeli perspective; Israel will never allow and Iranian Hezbollah to establish permanent bases in southern Syria. The presence of Syria's more elite forces (4th Mechanized Div/42nd Bde) mixed in with the advancing Iranian/Hezbollah columns provide no cover whatsoever. That Israel is striking to the rear of the advance of these forces of late (T4 strike and now Damascus Airport) must be seen as a clear warning by Israel of far, far worse to come should these advances continue.

Here's the current tactical picture and Israel's highly likely response to it. With Russia's tacit approval, the attempt to establish an Iranian/Hezbollah front against Israel from the Mediterranean Sea in southern Lebanon pivoting on Mt. Hermon and then through southern Syria southeastwards to the Golan Heights will leave Israel no other option than to execute its recently developed Gideon Doctrine into practice. Readers may recall we discussed this on Eschatology Today when the Gideon Doctrine was suddenly released in its sanitized public-release form in late 2015.

Eschatology Today believes there is a direct correlation between the warfighting foretold through the prophecies of Isaiah 17, Joshua 13 and Psalm 83 and Israel's "Gideon Doctrine." 

Simply put, the Gideon Doctrine is a warfighting doctrine which is based upon a very few key principles mirroring the national goals of the State of Israel and the current realities of the region.

1) Israel has no officially declared borders; 
2) Preserve Israel's values and character as a Jewish state; 
3) Secure the social and economic strength of the State of Israel; 
4) Secure regional and international status of the State of Israel while seeking peace. 

In order to accomplish these objectives the Gideon Doctrine recognizes that when war becomes an inevitability Israel must use the totality of all its military power in an overwhelming, offensive manner to crush all enemy forces. Therefore, the coming war can be seen as a preemptive no-holds-barred war to achieve the four key principles noted above. And when it happens, it will in all likelihood come without further warning.
  

Russian Air Defense Systems currently deployed to Syria

21 April 2017:  OSINT reports on the transfer of the remaining air worthy fixed wing aircraft  of Bashar al-Assad's remaining air force to Russia's Hmeimim Air Base south of Latakia  is confirmed. This redeployment effectively places the Syrian Arab Air Force under direct Russian air defense protection of the S-300 and S-400 AD systems. This is a prudent move as these antique Syrian aircraft of 1980's vintage have zero chance of surviving air-to-air combat with either the state-of-the-art IAF or US combat aircraft.

Note the new image above. The Russian AD systems did not give pause to Israel's air strike against the T4 air base recently. The IAF strike aircraft were well within the Russian air defense capabilities umbrella. The IAF aircraft must have been invisible to the Russian's state-of-the-art electronic warfare and radar systems at Hmeimim Air Base, or the Russian's simply allowed the devastating IAF strike to occur on their Syrian and Iranian/Hezbollah allies. Which of these possibilities is more plausible to you?

Knowing what's coming according to Bible prophecy makes the daily passage of time seem like watching individual grains of sand fall through the hourglass. However, today's exchange of mortar fire from the Syrian side and IDF artillery returning fire on the Syrian mortar positions serves to remind that there are  any number of fuses that could ignite the northern front.

Yesterday, 24 April 2017, the U.S. Trump Administration took the largely irrelevant step of placing economic sanctions on 271 individuals having direct ties to the Syrian chemical weapons program (CERS). Sanctions have never worked as a political tool, and this instance will be no exception in the history of economic sanctions.

Global SITREP B9-17: All War Is Deception

CVN-70 USS Carl Vinson in the Indian Ocean on 15 April 2017

19 April 2017: The most important lesson that should have been learned from this past weekend, and in going forward from here, is that all war is deception.

So with the news released earlier today that the USS Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group One (CSG-1) was nowhere near the Korean peninsula in the Sea of Japan last weekend, the global corporate media's (New York Times leading the pack) near instantaneous negative reaction, as well as that of the lefty blogosphere, was entirely predictable. It was unbridled hostility run amok and barely masked by their favorite sobriquets, like "fake news," "false narrative," and "Trump's lie." In a truly tense environment, the negative media reaction was probably the most appropriate form of comic relief that could have occurred at this juncture.

For the record what occurred this past weekend is known as Operational Deception, or OPDEC. The North Koreans, as well as the Russians and Chinese general staffs all believed, as did the media and blogosphere, that CSG-1 was just down range from a potential North Korean missile barrage to spark World War III. The mere threat of an American Carrier Strike Group close enough to reach out and touch Kim Jong Badhaircut where it hurts was all it took to keep his nuclear test from happening. 

The big unmentioned story here is that neither the Russians or the Chinese were capable of informing the North Koreans that our sea power was at least 3,000 miles away. They, true superpower wannabes, were as blind as a bat, and were probably furiously trying to figure out how an American nuclear-armed naval armada such as this was managing to be such an effective electromagnetic hole in the Western Pacific Ocean. It had to be nightmare of a real-time intelligence failure for the Russian and Chinese navies! I mean they were in the Sea of Japan just a couple of weeks ago for a major exercise with the South Korean and Japanese navies called Operation Foal Eagle 2017. Nobody saw the US carrier strike group leave the area?

I think the fact-of-the-matter is that CSG-1 was stationed near Singapore intentionally, just in case a rapid dash to either the Sea of Japan or the Arabian Sea became necessary in the event another al-Assad chemical warfare episode or a North Korean nuclear event/ICBM launch. Looking at a map of the Eastern Hemisphere this makes sense to this guy.

So, following a quick exercise with our mates Down Under, really good prep for a Korean deployment by the way, it appears that CSG-1 will be re-deploying from the Indian Ocean up to the Sea of Japan after all. Word also came today of a 30-day extension of CSG-1's WESTPAC  mission, and that speaks volumes. So the vast and very powerful armada that the Commander-In-Chief spoke of last week is going to sail off the Korean coast once again. Prudent actions, all of them.

He Is Risen!!!


16 April 2017 - 20 Nissan 5777: He is Risen and is Very Soon to Come Again!!!

"And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn."  - Zechariah 12:10

Global SITREP B8-17: Now Is The Time To Teach About The 'End of Days




13 April 2017: Taking a very brief time-out from the ongoing SITREP series about the literal fulfillment of Isaiah, Jeremiah as Asaph's prophesies in order to get this message out there. 

There's probably a good number of Christian folks, asking their pastors, ministers parish priests, aldermen, bishops and lay leaders about what's going on in the world today. They're asking questions like, "Are we heading into a world war because of the Syrian civil war or the North Korean nuclear threat?" Because these people are asking these questions of their religious leaders, that tends to indicate that they are not seeking the answers from the only definitive and 100% accurate source there is - the Word of God, the Holy Bible. I believe this is probably a given, and I pray that those who are being asked these questions are giving Spirit-led answers.

Then there are the rest of humanity all over the world. On the Google Trend website (trends.google.com) Eschatology Today conducted a trends search last evening  for the phrase 'World War III.'  To say that global interest in this is at a high level is an epic understatement. Normal index on this topic over the past five years (2012-2017) on a scale of 1 to 100 is usually around 5, with peaks having occurred in April and August 2013 when Obama threatened Syria over its chemical weapons and then did nothing, and March-April 2014 when Russia invaded Crimea and southeastern Ukraine, and again in November 2015 when Turkey, a NATO ally, shot down a Russian fighter jet. But none of these can top the current index of 100 due to the threat of a world war igniting over Syria and North Korea.

If there was ever a time for the bride of Christ to lead the unsaved to our Lord through the Biblical teachings on the 'last days' events, then right now is that time. As can be seen from the embedded URL above, people are searching for answers all over the world. "World War III' is just one example of a search term; there are any number of other directly related terms which could be searched for trends. For example, one search term would be just plain "World War.' With this term the average increases by nearly a factor of 5 (23 vs 5) for the entire past 5 years, with the greatest peak (100) having occurred during the Syrian chemical weapons crisis of 2013. 

The point is, people the world over are keenly interested and they're searching for answers. So, what are we waiting for?

Global SITREP B7-17: The Syrian Situation Revisited Part III

Update 11 April 2017: The Ezekiel Summit takes place today in Lucca, Italy when the Group of 7 (G7) industrialized nations (the US, UK, Germany, Japan, France, Italy and Canada) will hold a summit meeting led by US SECSTATE Rex Tillerson to discus the extremely dangerous and potential major war crisis point in Syria. 

The Group of Seven (G7) industrialized nations will be joined by five Sunni Arab nations: Turkey, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan and Qatar. For this reason Eschatology Today is going to coin the phrase "The Ezekiel Summit" for this and all future G7 Summits with their Sunni Arab allies. 


The Ezekiel Summit constitutes the first iteration of the alliance found in Ezekiel 38:13 literally translated from the Hebrew Scripture Shĕba' Dĕdan cachar Tarshiysh kĕphiyr as "Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish and all their young lions..."  It is not too far or a stretch to at least consider that these 12 nations may a few years become the 10 nations among whom the "little horn" emerges according to the angel Gabriel in Daniel in Daniel 7, as well as the "Ten Toes" of the two feet of the two legs discussed in Daniel 2.

We will be very keen to learn what comes from The Ezekiel Summit as these 12 nations line up against Russia and Iran in a fight over Syria. In this we have most of the nation state actors found in the entire host of pre-70th Week prophecies, and with Israel likely to bear a heavy burden in the eruption of hostilities per Isaiah 17:4-6. 

More updates to come...

10 April 2017: The big and as yet unreported news, unreported because no one outside of the United States Government has yet made this public information, is the Obama Administration kept stone cold quiet (this is "flexibility" as defined by Obama) on Russian military forces widespread use of banned incendiary weapons in Syria. Incendiary weapons are not banned in use in combat against enemy forces, but they are banned by international law from use where civilian populations are present. 

Russian forces were caught (pardon the pun) red-handed with incendiary munitions, such as RBK-500 ZAB-2.5SM incendiary bombs, deployed to Syria. The above image was taken from a video made by the English-language propaganda station RT on 18 June 2016 as Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu was visiting Hmeimim Air Base near Latakia, Syria. The video was broadcast internationally, with the above screen-captured image freaking out Russian military censors. This part of the video footage was promptly removed from subsequent airings. But that did not matter, the cat had escaped the bag. Perhaps not so amazing was that Russia denied after this video aired the first time that these incendiary weapons were deployed to Syria. 

RBK-500 ZAB-2.5SM incendiary bombs are loaded with a metallic powder fuel known as thermite. Thermite burns even hotter than white phosphorus; it cannot be extinguished by any normal means and must burn itself out. This is a clear violation of the Convention of Certain Chemical Weapons (CCCW); a convention to which Russia is a signatory nation. These weapons first appeared in Syria after Russian forces first deployed to Hmeimim Air Base, they use as air-dropped incendiary munitions began shortly thereafter and it continues up to the present. They were used on a civilian populated village south of Aleppo, Umm al-Karamil, on 16 March 2017, and they appear to have been used this past weekend, probably as an act of defiance against the U.S. strike on Ash Sha'irat Air Base.

Now you know the likely scenario through which a greater level of hostilities, possibly including a clash between Russian and American forces in the Syrian war zone may well take place in the days ahead.

9 April 2017: The Russian Federation Navy has deployed into the Eastern Mediterranean Sea its most advanced class of guided missile frigate following the U.S. Navy's Tomahawk land attack missile strike on Ash Sha'irat Air Base last Thursday in Syria. Russian Federation Ship 494 Admiral Grigorovich is expected to take up station shadowing U.S. Navy guided missile destroyers (Arleigh Burke class) DDG-78 Porter and DDG-71 Ross either before or after a brief port call to the Russian replenishment facility in port Tartus, Syria. The USS Porter and USS Ross are not the only forward deployed U.S. Navy ships in the combat zone; there are two other U.S. Navy destroyers nearby, and there is without doubt a US nuclear fast attack submarine prowling nearby as well.

Syrian jets were seen departing from Ash Sah'irat Air Base the day following the U.S. strike. The US national military authority has made it clear, as has U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, that additional strikes are possible depending on the actions of the Syrian government, which is a client state of the Russian Federation. 

There will also be a direct diplomatic clash between the United States and the Russian Federation as U.S. SECSTATE Rex Tillerson will be travelling to Moscow this week (Wednesday, 12 April) to confront the Russian government with what the U.S. believes is proof the collected intelligence of Russian foreknowledge and complicity in the sarin gas attack on Khan Sheikhoun on Tuesday, 4 March.

The collected intelligence presented will also prove a Russian attempt to cover up the sarin gas attack. The evidence of Russian complicity is being presented privately to Vladimir Putin's government as leverage to force Russia to abandon its military support of the war criminal Bashar al-Assad regime. How Russia responds to this evidence will determine much going forward; the Russian response if negative to U.S. goals may well lead the to a public release of this evidence in an open hearing at the United Nations. What will occur is all but predictable based upon the texts of Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49:23-27.

Global SITREP B6-17: The Syrian Situation Revisited Part II

Location of Shayrat Air Base in west-central Syria

FINAL UPDATE 8 April 2017: This will be the final update for SITREP B6:17 so that it doesn't become too large. Subsequent related events in Syria, the Eastern Mediterranean or elsewhere in the Middle East will be covered in The Syrian Situation Part III SITREP.

As most are now aware the USS Porter and USS Ross launched 30 Tomahawks each. One of those cruise missiles malfunctioned and fell harmlessly into the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. As military operations go, this was a very limited, extremely precise, meticulously planned and professionally executed strike mission. This strike mission could have been a much larger operation, but in the deliberations over what the US should do the concept of proportionality was the key determining element on the scale of operation the US would execute. It was the correct option that was chosen.

The message this strike mission sent to the most hostile governments in Syria, Iran and North Korea was as precise as the strike itself. Those government's understanding of the message is another matter entirely and out of any human control. Ditto for the Russian government. Xi Jinping wears three hats: he is the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party; the President of the People's Republic of China, and the Chairman of the Central Military Commission. That this strike was prepped and ultimately occurred while Xi Jinping was dining with President Trump in the middle of their very first and extremely important summit meeting is positively astounding. The effect must have been nothing short of seismic. 

In fact, the entire world was sent the unmistakable message that the United States of America is back, and back in increasing power on the global stage; gone like the wind was the pontificating but do-nothing America of Barack Obama. And the whole world was put on notice and has taken notice - friends and foes alike. Clean-up in aisle planet earth, which is overdue as a result of the eight Obama Administration years, is happening in real-time.

I have always believed that the fulfillment of Bible prophecy is largely the Lord's omniscient forewarning about the results of the free will decisions that human governments and their leaders will make in the future. That is what I believe is occurring now and will occur in the immediate future because Bible prophecy, as with the entire Word of God, is inerrant and fulfilled as explicitly as it has been written. So it will be with Jeremiah 49:23-27 and Isaiah 17. 

7 April 2017: Less than 24 hours later and the now highlighted analysis provided below has become real-world fact: the United States of America, a nation far too many Bible scholars and teachers of last days eschatology have opined to play no-role in last days prophetic fulfillment, has just done exactly that. A few hours ago U.S. executed a key event in the ongoing fulfillment of Bible prophecy found in the books of Jeremiah and Isaiah. Action such as the United States has just undertaken in Syria are commonly known in today's parlance as a "game changer." FACT: as witnessed by innumerable individuals around the world, the United States has been a central player in the literal fulfillment of Bible prophecy since Israel's re-birth in 1948.

On the order of U.S. Commander-In-Chief Donald J. Trump the United States Navy's guided missile destroyers Porter and Ross (DDG 78 and DDG 71, respectively) launched a total of about 30 Tomahawk cruise missiles each at Bashar al-Assad's Shayrat (Ash Sha'irat) Air Base where the chemical attack of three days ago on Khan Sheikhoun was determined through all-source intelligence analysis to have originated. (Additional and graphic details HERE.) The U.S. Tomahawks began impacting the base at 3:45 AM this morning Syrian time, or approximately 6 hours prior to this posting.

The forty aircraft shelters known to be at Ash Sha-irat probably each received at least one Tomahawk. So did the anti-air positions and fuel depot. Ash Sha-irat Air base is now also known to be a Syrian chemical weapons storage site. All anyone can do is hope the remaining 20 Tomahawks destroyed the chemical weapons bunkers at Ash Sha-irat Air Base, but it also should go without saying that Bashar al-Assad did not have all of his chemical weapons eggs in this one basket. Syria has now been found guilty of crimes against humanity, and its allies (Russia, Iran/Hezbollah and North Korea) are complicit in these crimes which now span from December 2012 to April 2017. The Obama Administration is now also complicit with the Russian Federation in fomenting a bald-faced lie regarding Syrian Weapons of mass Destruction. To borrow a phrase, Obama lied and Syrian children and babies died.

At approximately 01:30 hours this morning (EDT in Washington, D.C.) the Bashar al-Assad government released a statement calling the U.S. strikes on Ash Sha-irat Air Base "aggression" which had caused "losses."  Responsibility for this attack is also borne by the Russian Federation which had caused a boondoggle in the UN Security Council deliberations of yesterday due to its persistent objections in defending the al-Assad regime and threatened veto over the text of a condemning resolution. That failed diplomatic tactic convinced U.S. National Military Authority to strike immediately. 

For his part Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin released a statement through his spokesman Dmitry Peskov saying Russia regarded the American strike as "aggression against a sovereign nation" based upon a "made-up pretext." The U.S. and Russia are now locked into opposing sides of what amounts to a military confrontation on a Middle Eastern battlefield. 

Final assessment for this update: The Syrian capability to continue to use its banned chemical weapons against its enemies has only been very moderately reduced as a result of the Tomahawk strike on Ash Sha-irat Air Base, which is now a smoking pile of rubble. While the American Tomahawk strikes are currently billed as "one-off" there is little doubt that additional attacks by Al-Assad using WMD on his own people will result in fresh attacks on his military forces - who are defended by Russian military forces. 

Not to jump too far ahead of the present situation, but according to Bible prophecy, the Syrian government will be proven to have learned nothing from the lesson this strike was intended to have taught them. Bye bye Damascus; Bye bye Syria.

More updates to follow...

Map of Syria: Areas of Control, Khan Sheikhoun Sarin Attack 

6 April 2017: Instead of posting an update to Global SITREP A9-17, I've decided to post this as Part II of that SITREP, along with the understanding that this is also an near-real time update to what was being discussed in the preceding Global SITREP B5-17. In fact, it seems at this point a lot of prophetic Scripture is running together as it they were a stampede.

Firstly, the map (clickable) above illustrates the current lines and areas of control of the factions involved in the Syrian civil war as well as the location of the Sarin gas WMD attack by the government of Bashar al-Assad upon the civilians of the rebel-held city of Khan Sheikhoun. 

There are two critical things to note immediately. Some of you who've been reading Eschatology Today in the past several months are probably already aware of what will once again be stated. Based upon Jeremiah 49:23 the high probability has been repeatedly stressed of some major catastrophe occurring in northwest Syria. A weapons of mass destruction (WMD) attack involving the use of the G-series Sarin nerve agent on civilians in Khan Sheikhoun in northwest Syria definitively qualifies in the literal fulfillment of Jeremiah 49:23.

However, this is just the beginning and worse is coming down the pike. This is the second note of note of critical importance. The likelihood of U.S. military action, airstrikes or cruise missile strikes, upon one or more Syrian government airfields is a very high probability. These U.S. attacks could occur this morning or in the next day or so. Sooner rather than later in order to convey the seriousness of how the Trump Administration views the situation.

What is unknown is how Russia will respond to U.S. attacks and their level of severity upon their patron Bashar al-Assad's military infrastructure. The cratering of airfield runways and destruction of rotary-wing aircraft (helicopters) is a minimum of what U.S. air and naval forces in the region are likely to hit. Naval forces may be a key as the second half of Jeremiah 49:23 indicates:

"Hamath and Arpad are shamed,
For they have heard bad news.
They are fainthearted;
There is trouble on the sea;
It cannot be quiet."

Notice the direct tie-in of this verse to what Isaiah prophesied in Isaiah 17:12-13. For sure this is another indicator of far, far worse that is yet to come. Another unknown is that when the U.S. strikes Syria will Assad, at Iranian urging then strike out at Israel? Understand this: If Bashar al-Assad (or the IRGC/Hezbollah) were to order a weapons of mass destruction chemical attack upon Israel, then have no illusions that Israel will strike back with nuclear weaponry. And here we could be witness to the literal fulfillment of both Isaiah's and Jeremiah's prophecies in real-time. 

What strikes most solidly about all this is that instead of referencing an entire chapter of the Lord's prophetic word through His prophets, it is now necessary to cite individual and pairs of verses as coming to fulfillment before our eyes.

Global SITREP B5-17: The Coming Jerusalem Temple






UPDATE 3 April 2017: During a ceremony at Hatzor Air Base in Israel yesterday, PM Bibi Netanyahu led an array of Israeli civilian defense, military officers and other dignitaries in announcing the operational deployment of the joint U.S.-Israel developed David's Sling Defense System. Among the many Bibi quotes being reported in the media I find the Prime Minister's initial statement to be key with respect to this SITREP covering the Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83 prophecies: "Whoever seeks to hit us will be hit. Whoever threatens our existence places himself in existential danger.” 


The fully operational David's Sling is aptly named. In 1 Samuel 17 is told the epic encounter between the 9 foot 6 inch tall Philistine giant, Golyath of Gath, and his equally epic weaponry against the youthful son of Jesse named David. And David stunned Golyath with a single stone flung from his sling. David then stood upon the unconscious giant and removed Golyath's head with Golyath's own sword. The David's Sling state-of-the-art weapon is a hunt-to-kill missile known as the Stunner. The Stunner missile is designed to race toward the target and destroy it though the sheer power of impact, just like the stone from young David's sling.

David went forward into battle against an armed enemy which both sides saw for him as having zero chance of victory. But young David went forth knowing in faith that the living God of Israel would deliver the enemy into his hand, and it was so. 

For the purposes of the enemy nations named in Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83, and as discussed here in previous blog posts, the prophetic past as prologue template which follows the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83 fully applies to the building of the coming third Temple. That template is found in 1 Kings 5:3-5.

"You know how my father David could not build a house for the name of the Lord his God because of the wars which were fought against him on every side, until the Lord put his foes under the soles of his feet. But now the Lord my God has given me rest on every side; there is neither adversary nor evil occurrence. And behold, I propose to build a house for the name of the Lord my God, as the Lord spoke to my father David, saying, “Your son, whom I will set on your throne in your place, he shall build the house for My name.”"
The aftermath of the final fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83 there will be no enemy on any of Israel's borders, not one on any side. The past as prologue.


1 April 2017: In the previous SITREP B4-17 the case was made that the final fulfillment of Psalm 83 does appear to be quite imminent as evidenced by the statements made by King Abdullah II of Jordan. While Psalm 83 has been a prophecy long in a process of fulfillment, another pair of prophecies, found in Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49:23-27, have in the last 6 years also begun their own parallel process towards total fulfillment along with Psalm 83. 

As stated many times during the course of the now 9-year blog, I happen to hold to the eschatological view that these pre-70th Week fulfillment's happen in rapid sequence, like a prophetic flood, and like a series of prophetic dominoes to fall in their proper sequence. I believe Isaiah and Jeremiah's prophecies are the domino which will topple the Psalm 83 domino over. This SITREP will look at the sum total of what Eschatology Today consistently refers to as the "big picture" painted by the fulfillment of these prophecies. 

That is to say, specifically per Isaiah 17:1-3, that the destruction of Damascus and the nation-state we know as Syria, plus the damage which is done to Israel as seen in Isaiah 17:4-6, will lead the named enemies in Psalm 83:6-8 to believe their golden opportunity to Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more” has finally arrived. They will execute this action as Muslims waging jihad in full submission to their god and in his name.

This will be a unique phase to the Psalm 83 war in that there will almost certainly be no external intervention by other nations on behalf of the Islamic nations or on the behalf of Israel. Why and how can I arrive at this conclusion? Because i believe the Lord has declared it will be so through His prophets. 

Make a key note of what I am going to say here, it is that important to understand. In the ongoing war in Syria, a truly internationalized civil war if there ever was one, there are the intervening gentile military forces of Russia, Iran and its Lebanese Shi'a proxy Hezbollah, plus Iranian Shi'a mercenary forces from Iraq and Afghanistan on the side of the government and army in Damascus. On the other side there are the gentile forces of 61 nations, plus the EU and Arab League, which are led by the United States of America. This coalition of nations is known as Operation Inherent Resolve (clickable image below).

The Nations within the Operation Inherent Resolve Coalition
The palm wreath is a symbol of honor; the scimitars indicate the dual nature of the coalition-the defeat of ISIL and the restoration of stability to the area.  The three stars indicate the command and are colored gold for excellence.  Buff and flag blue denote the land, sea and air components of the military.

Both of the groups of forces operating in Syria are opposed to and engaged in destroying the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Sunni Muslim). They are also on opposite sides with respect to the Alawite (Branch of Shi'a Islam) government in Damascus. 

This is where we turn our attention to the Lord's prophetic word in Isaiah 17:12-13 (NKJV with my emphasis added) which describes a result of what is going to shortly take place in the course of the Isaiah 17 prophetic fulfillment:

Woe to the multitude of many people
Who make a noise like the roar of the seas,
And to the rushing of nations
That make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
The nations will rush like the rushing of many waters;
But God will rebuke them and they will flee far away,
And be chased like the chaff of the mountains before the wind,
Like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.

All of these gentile nations on both sides of the conflict in Syria are going to make a tumult which the prophet describes as the roaring and rushing of the seas. The seas of this planet being in such a state are normally an immovable and overwhelming force of nature. Yet in this God will rebuke them all and they will flee far away. Now you have to think about this, consider it carefully. What kind of a rebuke does the LORD God bring down on these gentile nations that they would all turn tail and immediately flee far away? I guarantee you that I would not want to be the object of such a rebuke where the better part of 100 gentile nations are forced from the battlefield that is Syria! 

Nevertheless, what the LORD God (YHWH) declares through Isaiah is exactly what will happen: both the Russian-led coalition and the U.S.-led coalition will be shattered by the coming rebuke from God. This means that His sovereign will will be manifest, not the will of these two groups of gentile nations fighting over control of this land, but God's will shall rule that day and is what will take place. Now some will say this sounds like 'Divine intervention,' and they would be right, it will be Divine intervention in the course of events in Syria, and in Israel, in the fulfillment of Isaiah 17. Scripture leaves no doubt about it.

That brings us to Psalm 83. All of the other gentile nations, except for Lebanon, Jordan, the Palestinians in Judea and Samaria, Gaza and Sinai will have fled the battlefield of the MidEast, and these nations, which Asaph clearly identified, are left to execute their attempt at making Psalm 83:4 come true. But as we know their hate-filled conspiracy against God and His people Israel has no chance of success. In fact exactly the opposite will occur and Israel will emerge victorious, and perhaps three, or four or five times its current territorial size. The greater Israel will include Lebanon (Joshua 13), control over much of Syria, all of western Jordan, Judea and Samaria, Gaza and probably all of the Sinai.

Yet this is not the greatest part of what occurs as a result of the sequential fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83. The greatest part of result of this has been foretold by Asaph in Psalm 83:16-18 (NKJV with my emphasis added):

Fill their faces with shame,That they may seek Your name, O Lord.Let them be confounded and dismayed forever;Yes, let them be put to shame and perish,That they may know that You, whose name alone is the Lord,Are the Most High over all the earth.
This prophetic passage described the end of Islam, the conversion of a great number of Muslims from submission to their god allah to the God of Israel. The end result of these prophetic wars is that Muslims will seek the name of YHWH. They will be confounded and dismayed that allah was powerless, a false god, and their devotion to that false god will abruptly come to an end; Islam, which is specifically submission to allah, will perish. Muslims will come to know that YHWH God is truly "the existing One;" that He is the El-yōn' meaning Most High over all of the earth.

And this bring us finally to the pair of clickable images at the top. Those images are taken from a modern reproduction of a 1924 publication by the Muslim Orphanage Printing Press, Jerusalem, which was run by the Muslim Supreme Council (the Waqf) in Jerusalem.  An identical 1925 reproduction is available through a TempleInstitute.org online .pdf file (link) if anyone is interested.

Whether or not the current edifices (Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosque) are destroyed during the fulfillment of Psalm 83 is beside the point made above about Muslims finally recognizing YHWH God, the God of Israel. Given that the generation of Muslims which wrote that the identity of the site of the Dome of the Rock with the site of Solomon's Temple is beyond dispute, how likely would it be that any YHWH worshiping former Muslim would object to a new Temple standing on this same site for the purposes of worshiping "the existing One; the El-yōn'?  None I would say, or at least not enough to make a difference in objection. In fact, I would tend to think those former Muslims which are now YHWH devotees would even assist their Jewish cousins in any manner possible to construct it as quickly as possible.
