Global SITREP C1-20: Rumors of War Part V

Israel Knows Iran's Nuclear Secrets
10 July 2020: The lead item in 'Rumors of War Part IV' concerned what was initially believed to be sabotage at Iranian nuclear weapons and delivery systems facilities. Now Eschatology Today knows enough to fill in some of the blanks.

In the past two weeks (26 June to today) there has been a total of six major attacks on the the Iranian Twelver regime's nuclear and related ballistic missile delivery systems sites. These attacks have been a mix consisting of sabotage by an Iranian 5th column who are anti-regime military members self-identified as "Homeland Cheetah's," state-of-the-art cyber warfare and airstrikes. The cyber and air attacks are strongly believed to be attributable to the ever-increasing reach and lethality of  Israel's military forces, specifically its cyber warfare and F-35I Adir stealth strike aircraft. Of course it goes without saying that Israel officially neither confirms or denies any role in these attacks (wink, wink).

However, analysis of these strikes provides abundant evidence that their occurrence involved the significant resources and capabilities of a nation state. The sheer precision of the strikes strongly indicates they were guided in good measure by the treasure trove of intelligence taken from the Tehran vault penetrated by Israel's clandestine operatives which PM Bibi Netanyahu revealed to the world not so long ago (image above).

For example, an attack on the Natanz nuclear site all but obliterated the production of Iran's newest IR-9 nuclear centrifuges which would provide Iran the capability enrich uranium at 50 times that which the IR-1 centrifuges permitted under the JCPOA "Obama nuclear agreement." With operational IR-9 centrifuges Iran would have had enough weapons grade fissile material for a live warhead within few weeks (less than 8, but more than four). Still, this attack retards Iran's ongoing uranium enrichment program by a mere two years according to Western subject matter experts.

The initial 26 June attack on the highly classified and simply massive Parchin nuclear and ballistic missile complexes caused extensive destruction to large sections. In fact, entire facilities were instantly turned into dust and debris. The other four attacks hit targets in Tehran, Kahrizak, Ahvaz and Shiraz that Iran claimed were for civilian purposes and were in residential areas of the cities struck. We can attribute this Iranian Twelver claim to equate to a tacit admission of using civilian infrastructure in the furtherance of its nuclear weapons programs. Put another way, Israel knows Iran's nuclear secrets so much so that they can't even hide them in plain sight. Again, the precision of the strikes prevented any collateral (i.e. civilian) loss of life.

These attacks are not over by any measure. The most recent in the series occurred about 36 hours ago. Thus far Iran has yet to respond to them in any meaningful way. That may be because they cannot respond to them. It appears that the Lord is fulfilling the prophecy he gave to Jeremiah many thousands of years ago: He has sent a sword against this evil regime which will not relent until the regime has been totally consumed.

Update 16:30 EDT: Just got word of another massive explosion which occurred yesterday in west Tehran. This initial report claims the blast occurred at 4 AM local time at an IRGC missile storage facility. A second report just received has two additional explosions occurring in Garmdareh and Quds. These two are also reportedly "strategic sites." Waiting on confirmation of these potential attacks.

Updates as they occur.

Global SITREP B10-20: Global "Great Reset" to Establish Global Technocratic Order

Klaus Schwab, Chairman - World Economic Forum
30 June 2020: Eschatology Today has been warning about this for some time. (see: Global SITREP C6-19: It Is Sentient) Yet it seemed distant, non-palpable; in somebody else's future perhaps, as Divinely-inspired prophecy or prophetic interpretation so appears at times. Especially when it's key elements are straight out of what John on Patmos was told to write down two millennia ago in The Apocalypse (Revelation) of Jesus Christ.

As the expression goes in New York City slang, fuhggedaboudit, the warnings are being realized; they are here with us right now. Most importantly, the global epidemic crisis begun by the Chinese-origin SARS-CoV-2 virus (44,580 daily new cases in the United States alone as of 29 June 2020) is the vehicle by which the global oligarchy, the elitists of global technology, finance, business, government (a/k/a Deep State) and the over-arching control mechanism we have come to know as Artificial Intelligence (AI). It's not a "brave new world" but a new world populated by slaves. Paul explained all this in II Thessalonians 2 and that's where you should go for additional refresher or reference.

The now 75-year old United Nations (the facade of global governance) refers to this under the umbrella nomenclature of "Agenda 2030" and the "2030 Vision Platform." This agenda is also known as "the Fourth Industrial Revolution." Again, it's all present and accounted for in 2020, a decade early. 

So, in a nutshell, the plan is for the elites of the global oligarchy to coming riding in to the rescue like a cavalry save the planet from polar polarization, nationalism, racism, social unrest and conflicts on an ever increasing scope and scale, and during a global pandemic. Sound familiar. It should be. Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum (image above) put it this way: "...we can build a new social contract, particularly integrating the next generation, we can change our behavior to be in harmony with nature again, and we can make sure the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution are best utilized to provide us with better lives."   

This is how they describe the world to shortly be enslaved by the unholy trinity of Satan, Antichrist and the False Prophet. And who are the human builders of this global beast empire? Here's the list. Bill Gates and Microsoft, the Rockefeller's (multiple Foundations and Funds), the Ford's, Bloomberg's and George Soros Open Society Foundation.  The list continues, the World Economic Forum, Avanti Global Communications,  British Semiconductor ARM, Germany's SAP, Google, and MasterCard, who will be key to the digital ID necessary for services and payments of the "New International Economic Order" (i.e. buying and selling). Everybody will have a new "digital identity" just as the name of the first beast has been identified in Revelation 13:18.

The digital ID permits a secure (verified ID), one-click entrance into any commercial activity or store, virtually or in person, for any activity you can possibly imagine of a social, medical, educational, travel, leisure - you name it - activity. Most people in America are being educated right now in how to do these things via the on-line virtual environment. If you've not yet experienced "teleworking" or "telecommuting" you probably will soon enough on your computer or smart phone. In the 70th Week the smart ID will be a device on the right-hand or forehead instead of the chip-enabled bio-metric ID cards millions are using right now. 

This brings us to "The Great Reset." Just days ago Mr. Schwab, supported by Prince Charles, the UN General Secretary Guterres, MasterCard, Microsoft and the IMF, spoke of the need for the "Great Reset" to restore order to a world "steeped in panic, conflict and economic turmoil." Here's the rub, in October 2019, all of this was set in motion by the same  global oligarchs identified above. They created this mess in order to "fix it."

Global SITREP B9:20: Rumors of War Part IV

Birds-eye view of Parchin, Iran explosion as it happened 26JUN20
26 June 2020: Since this is so recent it's at the head of this SITREP. Early this morning a pair of massive explosions occurred at the IRGC's massive Parchin nuclear weapons and military-grade explosives production complex east of Tehran, Iran. The detonations were captured in still and video photography dramatically lighting up the sky. Reportedly there was an explosion at an electrical power plant which just slightly preceded the Parchin blast. Social media and MSM speculation is rampant, yet Eschatology Today believes that these events were both deliberate and directly related. Very likely sabotage by anti-regime operators. 

At nearly the same time Iraqi government anti-terror forces raided a pro-Iranian militia (Kata'ib Hezbollah) headquarters arresting key leaders and seizing stores of rockets. The leaders were transferred into the custody of the Joint Operations Command (JOC). Intel has it that Kata'ib Hezbollah was preparing to fire the rockets at both Green Zone and Iraqi bases hosting US and Coalition forces. At last report Shi'a militia forces from southern provinces were arriving at the southern entrances to Baghdad,

The primary reason for this SITREP remains the approach of the Jordan Valley land annexation of Judea and Samaria to Israel. In preparation for expected resuming of combat operations the IDF has deployed Iron Dome and other defensive battalions around Gaza. HAMAS and the other factions have been testing their rockets into the Mediterranean Sea in recent weeks. HAMAS has declared that Israel's annexation plan is a "declaration of war" and reiterated its determination to liberate all of Palestine from Jewish occupation. 

However, in Hebrew-language media (N12) there is a report that Jared Kushner has pressed Jerusalem to call off annexation of the Jordan Valley. It's report has Israel informing Mahmoud Abbas via Mossad chief Yossi Cohen and Jordan's King Hussein that the Jordan Valley will not be included in the planned annexation of Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria on July 1st. 

Bottom line: We'll see what actually transpires over the next several days.

Global SITREP B8:20: The Situation Report

The Last Few Grains of Sand
23 June 2020: The Situation Report is that there is clearly very little of what we know of time left. If you can count how many grains of sand remain in the hourglass, then you know more than Eschatology Today knows. 

In fact, only God Himself knows for sure, but we all sense it in our Spirit. There are very few grains of sand left to fall. We see all of the signs Jesus gave us in the Olivet Discourse on a daily basis these days, every one of them are as precise and plainly evident in every location and nation on this earth. Why, one would have to be Spiritually blind to not see the signs! 

But none of this is news to the bride of Christ; none of us are blind. What we see we've been expecting because He told us it would happen. Over at least the last ten years many have opined on the decline of the United States as an issue of prophetic importance even though Scripture doesn't specifically point to it. 

Nevertheless, few of them understood Jesus' words regarding ethnos rising against ethnos in the manner in which we see it manifesting in America's cities right now. If you're in a suburban region, it's there also or will be soon enough. This lawlessness is ideological, it is racial, it is economic and it is ethnic. It is satanic-inspired hatred in our streets and in city hall's from the Atlantic to the Pacific. And it is even worse overseas, in foreign cities, where the national army has had to intervene to keep opposing sides from slaughtering each other. 

But the good news is that this upheaval of global lawlessness is being restrained by the Holy Spirit within all of us. He goes, we go, and what we see at present will very quickly become unrestrained. Nobody in their right mind wants to be here for that. 

So, what is the situation report? It is this. Even though we know Jesus is coming for us very soon, and we are watching as He implores us to keep watching, a great many will be caught by surprise, and that we can remedy swiftly.

If you know a sleeping brother or sister who's spiritually snoozing, rouse him or her up to be looking up and looking out for all the rest of us. And pray, pray, pray; even be praying in that twinkling of an eye when we are called up to Him in the clouds. And keep on keeping on until that nanosecond comes.

Global SITREP B7-20: Rumors of War Part III

King Abdullah II of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
UPDATE 2 June 2020: Each tick of the clock these days brings a new item, and each new item brings fulfillment of Bible prophecy that much closer. Here are the latest ticks worth mentioning. 

An overwhelming number of Middle East observers now agree that IAF combat aircraft (likely a pair of F-35I Adir) conducted a strike Sunday afternoon on a vehicular convoy of Iranian proxy militiamen near Albukamal, Deir Ezzor province, Syria. At least five foreign militiamen serving Iran were killed. 

Russia has deployed one of its newest main battle tanks, the T-14 Armata, onto the Syrian battlefield. Along with these tanks the Russians have also deployed their newest anti-air laser weapons system, known as the Peresvet, for operational combat testing. The Peresvet is a near clone of the U.S. Navy's AN/SEQ-3 Laser Weapons System (LaWS) and is credited with the recent shoot-down of an Israeli reconnaissance drone flying in Syrian airspace just north of the Golan.

Upgraded Russian MiG-29 were delivered to the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) on 30 May at Hmeimim Air Base. The SAAF intends to use them to engage and shoot down the IAF F-16I Sufa strike aircraft. SAAF pilots commenced flying the MiG-29's yesterday.

A massive amount of armor of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) as well as Hezbollah and other Iranian proxy militia are prepped for an imminent full-scale offensive in the Daraa, Syria region (northeast of the Golan) against a rebel resurgence there.  Israel will take a very dim view of such an offensive.

26 May 2020: Today the Commander USAFRICOM released at statement announcing the detection of Russian strike aircraft deploying to eastern Libya from Syria. These aircraft were watched closely from the moment they departed Russian airspace, into Syria, and then across the Mediterranean Sea into Libya. These aircraft will be for ground combat support of Russia's ground forces (Wagner Group) mercenaries fighting to defeat the U.N.-recognized Government of National Accord in Tripoli. Russian pilots in Russian aircraft bombing Libyan soldiers in order to advance Russia's interests in Libya. The link to Ezekiel 38/39 in this action is blatantly obvious.

According to PM Netanyahu yesterday, Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria will commence on 1 July 2020. Jordan annexed Judea and Samaria, as well as East Jerusalem, in the aftermath of Israel's War of Independence in 1948. This was not a problem for Israel at that; no bellicose or warlike threats were made. Yet after Israel conquered Judea and Samaria in the June 1967 war it has remained under Israeli state control ever since. Only now the the Muslim enemies around Israel, and in Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey are bellicose and warlike words heard from their side. Erdogan went so far as to say that he personally would not permit Israel's annexation of Judea and Samaria to occur. Given this level of bellicosity, with or without Turkish threats, should we expect war to erupt in about a month from now if PM Netanyahu fulfills his plan for annexation? Eschatology Today would assess war under these circumstances as a high probability.

18 May 2020: While this may be Part III of the current 'Rumors of War' series, it is also a timely follow-up to Global SITREP D3-19 of 06OCT19, serving to remind us of the events which took place eight months to a year ago as Israel's secular government began devolving into political collapse. Indeed, we've discussed this overall picture now and then for the better part of the past six years.

At this time we have renewed forward momentum, even with a new secular, merry-go-round coalition government forming. It is very telling that the immediate and somewhat preemptive reaction from Amman looks and smells very much like the prophetic scenario formed by Psalm 83; Isaiah 11:12-14 and Ezekiel 28:24-26. 

Jordan's king Abdullah II is once more lifting up his head in warning about "Chaos and extremism" followed by a "massive conflict" when Israel proceeds with its long-rumored land-swap annexation of  Judea and Samaria within the framework of the Trump Administration's "Peace and Prosperity" plan. This kind of oratory bellicosity has to be proceeded by in-depth counsel and consultation among the various regional Arab factions. Accordingly, the overall prophetic narrative is having all the right boxes checked.

Additional background can be found within SITREPs: C9-18; D1-19 and A6-20 in the blog archive.

Global SITREP B6-20: Kings of the East (Part II)

Army of the Kings of the East
10 May 2020: This SITREP is a follow-up to the Eschatology Today original "The Kings of the East" published in October 2010. All of the same Scripture references in that post apply in Part II. Another excellent point of reference is found within 'The Nations in Prophecy' by John F. Walvoord, published January 1967. Chapter 12 is entitled "The Kings of the East: The Oriental Confederacy."

There's a lot of speculation and think-tank products going around since the Communist Chinese SARS-COV-2 global pandemic erupted in late January of this year. With many world governments now holding or threatening to hold the People's Republic of China accountable for the outbreak in allowing its infected population to disperse around the globe in advance of the Chinese New Year celebrations (Jan 25, 2020) without any advance warning, there appear to be days of reckoning coming soon. How the ruling Chinese Communist Party in Beijing may respond is the subject of many speculations. Some of them appear to mesh very well with Scripture on the subject.

We'll have to see how things transpire, but one of the most recent military scenarios has Bejing using the 12-million strong People's Liberation Army (PLA) to lash out against global COVID-19 retribution. The retribution is primarily led by the removal of the American market as a primary source of economic growth, thereby driving the economy of the People's Republic of China into a steep downward spiral. 

To stem the economic free-fall Beijing might find it necessary to internalize its economics by an even more massive expansion of its military forces. A vastly expanded military would then be used to subdue troubled North Korea, and absorb its million-man army. This could initiate the 'oriental confederacy' Walvoord wrote about, a/k/a 'The Kings of the East' in Scripture. Next would be a total military subjugation of Tibet, and in-turn cause India to intervene militarily in support of the fiercely independent Tibetans. China and India are nuclear powers, and India has a massive land army of its own. Then there's Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Laos and all the nations on the periphery of the South China Sea) which would not go quietly into captivity. South Korea, Japan and Taiwan would quickly become directly involved causing America's rapid intervention. This is how the so-called World War IV could begin, one that is raging at the very outside of the 70th Week. 

These kinds of speculative scenarios are quite probable as they are based upon real-world dynamic that have played out in similar manner as in the first two world wars and the third world war known as the Cold War. Scripture is not specific about the war at the beginning of the 70th Week, but there's no question that it will occur (Revelation 6:1-8).

Global SITREP B5-20: Rumors of War Part II

UPDATE 4 May 2020: A simple and to the point update. Israel is now striking Iranian military targets in Syria with regularity and impunity, from the Iraqi border to the Lebanese border. 

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and RF President Vladimir Putin

4 May 2020:
The Iranian-Russian issue (discussed below) has another facet: the Iranian Twelver regime holds a much higher level of influence over the al-Assad regime than Russia does. In fact, Syria has become openly defiant against Russia's demands for returns on its investment in saving the regime from being overthrown. Chalk up the Syria-Iran alliance and defiance of Russia to the Shi'a-Alawi brotherhood. Alawi's adhere to the teachings of the 12th imam, Ali, making them a sect of Shi'a Islam.

There are also increasing reports of American and Russian military tensions in northern Syria, mainly in the Tall Tamr and Qamishli region. In the first incident a fist fight erupted between American and Russian troops, with some Russians being on a medevac for hospital treatment. In the second and third confrontations, at Qamishli and Tall Tamr respectively, the two used their armored vehicles to block the other side from continuing its patrol. As this was occurring a heavy aircraft presence above kept close tabs on what the boots on the ground were doing. Syria is rapidly deteriorating under such tensions. The Damascus government has little, if any, effective control over the entire northern and northeastern regions. 

3 May 2020: Eschatology Today is now seeing the geopolitical and military dynamic that had existed in Syria for the past five years (since Russian military intervention of 2015) changing significantly. The former fraternal relationship between Russia and Iran, united in an effort to save the Alawite regime of Syria's Bashar al-Assad from the Sunni-led revolt, has in recent weeks begun to unravel to the point of being completely undone.

This is due to the divergence of Russian and Iranian objectives in Syria. Russia wants considerable economic and military rewards from Syria as due recompense for its intervention in saving al-Assad's regime from the Sunni revolt, while the Iranian Twelvers in Tehran remain committed to their eschatologically-driven goal of Shi'a hegemony over Iraq, Syria and Lebanon as essential to the destruction of State of Israel. 

Obviously these two objectives are mutually exclusive; they cannot possibly exist simultaneously within Syria. The Iranian war plan is an existential threat to Russia's interest in a reconstructed and economically healthy Syria simply because the resultant devastation of Syria in an apocalyptic Shi'a-Alawite war against Israel would rapidly nullify the Syria that Russia believes it has bought and paid for. 

As we know from the prophetic texts of Isaiah and Jeremiah there is a certain fate awaiting Syria that is wholly contrary to Russia achieving its objectives. Recall in September 2018 how Syrian air defenses mistakenly shot down a Russian reconnaissance aircraft, killing the 15-man air crew and sparking a crisis in Israeli-Russian relations. This crisis occurred because Russia wrongly blamed Israel's military instead of Syria's military for the tragedy. 

Eschatology Today is once again leaning forward in considering the possibility of a Russian leader wrongly blaming Israel again in the near future for the coming devastation of Damascus and of all Syria, a devastation brought about by the Shia Twelver's and their apocalyptic, Mahdi-hastening eschatology. Such devastation of Syria would necessarily result in massive if not crippling economic and military loses for Russia. Could this be the real-world origin for the evil thoughts and "hooks" placed into the jaws of Ezekiel 38:4, for the desire to invade and to take plunder and despoil an Israel at peace, living securely with no one presenting a threat?

IRGC-Qods Force burns in southwest Damascus Province
27 April 2020: Israel Air Force (IAF) strikes during the pre-dawn hours this morning destroyed multiple IRGC-Qods Force and Hezbollah facilities in the south of Damascus. The enemy facilities were just west of the main M5 highway from Sahnaya south to Al-Kiswah. They no longer exist.

This morning's strikes are being tied by Israeli and foreign (Sunni Arab) media to another significant IAF strike on an IRGC-QF base one week ago in the area of Palmyra, as well as an IAF strike midweek which annihilated a Hezbollah vehicle convoy on the Beirut-Damascus highway that was engaged in the transfer of Iranian precision weapons from Iran's Syrian warehouses into Hezbollah warehouses in Lebanon. The convoy failed to make it into Lebanese territory.

The reason for the linkage is due to comments made by Defense Minister Naftali Bennet late Sunday. DM Bennett had essentially announced to the citizens of Israel to be alert to what they would see and hear going forward; that Israel had transitioned its military doctrine from not allowing Iran to entrench itself in Syria to one of forcing Iranian forces out of Syria.

“We aren’t just continuing our work preventing Iran from entrenching itself in Syria, we’ve moved decisively from preventative action to forcing (Iran) out.”

These pre-dawn Israeli strikes on Iranian military targets in Syria have for years been assessed by Eschatology Today as the type of military action that would precipitate the destruction of Damascus, as well as the nation of Syria, according to Isaiah 17.  Isaiah 17:14 speaks to a retaliatory WMD strike against Israel's civilian population and the resultant lightning quick and desolating war. It will begin at the 'eth 'erev (evening) of one day and conclude prior to the boqer (morning) of the next day.

We, in the USA, will wake up to this news much as we did this morning's news. Any one of these announced strikes to remove Iran from Syria could result in the literal fulfillment of Isaiah 17.

Global SITREP B2-20: Rumors of War

IAF F-35I Adirs
UPDATED> 26 March 2020: There are indications that hostilities against Iran may be in advanced planning stages. These indications began to coalesce following the Iranian Shi'a militia proxy (PMF) made another attempt to attack the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad this morning with rockets. The rockets fell short, but were on a definitive trajectory to strike the Embassy.

There was a massive and apparently impromptu US and Israeli air forces exercise in southern Israel which may have just concluded. None of the U.S. aircraft landed in Israel. Most of the participating aircraft were of US and Israeli F-35 stealth family of strike aircraft. The US F-35s flew in to Israel, engaged in the exercise and departed post-exercise to several bases elsewhere in the Middle East.  Concurrent with the US/Israeli air strike exercise the U.S, and UAE conducted an exercise to seize and hold a small city. There were 4,000 troops involved. These are the indications that some type of retaliation or other military action might be in the works, corona virus or no corona virus.

And that's not all. Today Benny Gantz stunned Israelis by abandoning the Blue and White party to join Benjamin Netanyahu and Likud in forming a unity coalition and immediately thereafter forming an "emergency" unity government for the State of Israel. Upon establishment of the "emergency" unity government. Gantz immediately took his initial position as Speaker of the Knesset; he will eventually fill the role of Israel's Foreign Minister. Netanyahu will retain his position as Prime Minister until September 2021 at which time Gantz will assume the premiership of Israel. In analysis, it seems obvious that the need for Israel to establish an "emergency" unity government is related to some external, existential threat requirement. An external existential requirement such as to preempt the Iranian nuclear weapons programs would appear to fit the current situation, as well as the aforemention military activities.

In a side note, the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) has docked in Guam in mid-deployment. The carrier had to medevac three sailors earlier this week who tested positive with COVID-19, but with only very mild symptoms. Since then several more crewmen have tested positive, also with mild symptoms. The Navy says 100% of the 5,000-strong crew will be tested. No one will be permitted to leave the pier at which the ship docked. The ship remains combat capable if called upon.

28 March 2020: Once again Eschatology Today's advanced sourcing has proven accurate as seen in news reports such as was published today in the Jerusalem Post. The report, published just over one hours ago, bears the headline "Iran and US preparing for new round of conflict in Iraq." 

As noted in the original entry for this SITREP, "hostilities against Iran" means within the territory of Iran. Other indications strongly suggest the US may also intend to annihilate the IRGC-QF PMF/PMU militias known as Hashd al-Shaabi; with Katai'b Hezbollah being a principle entity, and which operates in both Iraq and Syria. It's Syria base was recently annihilated through intensive strikes from F-35 stealth aircraft. More OSINT details are to be found in the linked JPost article.

Ash Sha-irat Air Base burns after IAF strike 31MAR20

2 April 2020:
Continuing where comments left off early this morning with the multiple-sources confirmation of the IAF strike on Syria's Ash-Sha'irat Air Base. It is the second such strike on this base in recent weeks. It is also where the U.S. struck almost three years ago to the day when President Trump retaliated after the Syrian chemical weapons attack on Khan Sheikhoun that originated from this air base. Khan Sheikhoun is located in the southern part of Idlib Province. For those in need of a refresher, pay a visit HERE

So, beside the obvious chemical weapons aspect, why is Israel repeatedly striking this particular air base; what actionable intelligence does Israel have? By many accounts Israel is convinced that Syria retains a considerable CW capability, one that could prove far more deadly to far more Israelis than nCoV-2019 does. This is a CW capability that was not fully destroyed under international guarantee. No surprise here.

The particular CW holding Israel's rapt attention is the neurotoxin VX, the most potent chemical weapon on earth. It is this type of weapon when used against Israel's cities that would almost certainly result in Damascus' transformation to a heap of ruins. So, we could say that the IAF is unknowingly doing its level best to preempt the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49:23-27. Obviously, these prophecies will be fulfilled, and Ash-Sha'irat Air Base is a likely source for that soon to arrive "day of disease and incurable pain." (Is. 17:11b NKJV)

Yesterday, President Trump once again repeated his oft-repeated warning to the Iranian regime about the resulting repercussions an attack against U.S. troops will precipitate. Paraphrase, the President said, 'We don't want conflict, so Iran should not do what (we know) they are planning to do.' Eventually the apocalyptic Twelver regime in Tehran and Qom will act stupidly, and that, as the saying goes, will be that.

11 April 2020: The image ISI released which shows  the damage done to Sha'irat Air Base runways and navigation systems, as well as "repair activity."

UPDATE 22 April 2020: In the past week or so  Iranian naval gunboats have routinely and dangerously harassed U.S. Navy ships in the Gulf. The Iranian's have ignored all U.S. ships warnings to stand-off and stand-down from these types of harassing and aggressive actions.

A little over two hours ago President Trump relayed an order to the U.S. Navy 5th Fleet:

"I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea."

Global SITREP B4-20: Eye on Temple Mount

Temple Mount Someday Soon
14 April 2020: Eschatology Today's interest in what's current with the process (yes, it is an ongoing process) to rebuild the Jewish Temple on Mount Moriah was reignited anew yesterday when the news report about the Sanhedrin having to cancel a planned ritual sacrifice for this Passover due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That the Sanhredrin were going to undertake such a proscribed ritual speaks volumes on where the Orthodox Jews are regarding re-establishing the Temple and its services.

However, to begin with let's first engage in a preemptive in dispelling any notion that there won't be a Temple standing on Mount Moriah. The proof is found in the angel Gabriel's 70 Weeks prophecy. Daniel 9:27a specifically states: "Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering." There's only one location where sacrifice and offering to the Lord take place in Judaism - the Temple.

From June 1967 to the present since there is no Temple standing on Mount Moriah, Jews have gone to the Western Wall as that is as close as Israeli law will allow them to Judaism's holist site. In a sign of the times (due to fears of SARS-COV-2 infection) those Jews who routinely go to the Western Wall have been instructed by chief rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz to refrain from kissing it in a show of reverence to the God of Israel. All but a very few of the most devout in Jewish ultra-Orthdoxy have followed the instruction, yet even they have been seen to practice social distancing from fellow worshippers. 

The battle to rebuild the Temple (Beit Hamikdash) is caught up in the same political battle that plagues American politics, the battle between traditional conservatives and their values and the "deep state" and its uber-liberal and globalist secularism. In recent comments Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu confirmed this struggle. Despite this, The Temple Institute's director, Rabbi Chaim Richman, has declared the only thing standing in the way of rebuilding the Temple is the desire of Israel's people to do it.

It's kind of interesting to note the Jewish question, "Which comes first, Mashiach or Beit Hamikdash?" The Bible, both OT and NT, tells us unequivocally that the both the first and second Temples were standing before Jesus Messiah came. Nevertheless, Orthodox Judaism believes that building the Temple preceeds the arrival of the man who they currently believe will be their Mashiach. There isn't - or should not be - a single born-again Christian who does not understand that the Mashiach the Orthodox Jews are expecting is one and the same man as the angel Gabriel spoke of in Daniel 9:27a - the Anti-Christ of Revelation 13.

So, where do things stand today? All of the physical implements necessary for Temple worship, plus a trained cadre of the Temple priesthood, have been exactingly re-created awaiting only for the Temple to rise up on Mount Moriah. The Temple Institute has even practiced the Numbers 19 mitzvah burning of a red heifer on the Mount of Olives to obtain its ashes for ritual purification. It wasn't a real red heifer, but a stand-in to perfect the procedure. Even the types of wood necessary (pine, oak and fig tree) were meticulously researched. This practice session was done a little over 7 months ago away from prying eyes of the public and media. The ritual burning of the real red heifer may also be done in such secrecy. 

All of this evidences there's no doubt that the time is near.

Global SITREP B3-20: Psalm 90:10 Exegete

12 April 2020: A key verse that Eschatology Today has relied upon for the sum of last days exegesis is Psalm 90:10. It comes from within the whole of Psalm 90, which has been subtitled "A Prayer of Moses the Man of God." As with all Scripture the entire text is God-breathed and therefore infallible. Fallibility may have arisen in the manner in which exegesis of this verse has been applied for some time here.

Simply stated, the 80 years of strength is a whole. Those 80 years very likely should not have been subdivided in an assumption that the Harapzo of the bride of Christ needed occur about 7 years prior to that 80th year. 

What had been done was to add 80 years to the year of Israel's rebirth (1948) as the beginning of the Lord's prophetic clock countdown, to arrive at the year 2028, and then 7 years were subtracted to account for Israel's 70th week of years (2021) occurring within the 80 years.

The correction of seeing the entire 80 years as a whole, not to be eschatologically dissected, is what the Lord leaned heavily on my heart about in recent days. He's told me to 'fix it." So fix it I must and with this SITREP have done so. 

The Harpazo has always been an imminent, signless event ever since Pentecost of 32 AD, the day the bride of Christ was born. The imminence remains intact, and the Harpazo/Rapture/Laqach of the bride of Christ can take place according to the will of God at any moment, but still within the whole of those 80 years of strength, or between now and 2027-2028. Beyond the 80 years is where Israel's 70th week of years will take place.

It is always essential in exegesis of Scripture to do so in the context in which it appears. The Lord pushed my eyes to a verse in Psalm 90 that follows verse 10 and provides the necessary context. That verse is Psalm 90:12.

"So teach us to number our days so that we may get a heart of wisdom." The 'heart of wisdom" here, for myself at least, is to see that the 7 weeks of years of the Lord's wrath and judgment upon the earth should take place outside of the 80 years of strength instead of within them.

He Is Risen!!!

12 April 2020 - 18 Nisan 5780: 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 B1-20: The Novel Corona Virus 2019 in Perspective

UPDATE 09 April 2020: A potentially human bioengineered virus known as SARS-COV-2 is running rampant. This virus causes a disease known as COrona VIrus Disease-19 (COVID-19).

It has been determined that SARS-COV-2 can be transmissible to other people and animals through the air. It can survive airborne for up to 3 hours, and on different types of surfaces for several days.

This is why wearing a washable mask (daily washing highly advised) and throw-away gloves are so important as defense mechanisms against SARS-COV-2. Washing hands with a quality soap (Ivory Soap, Dove, etc) for 20 seconds several times wach day and not touching one's face are also imperative desfense measures.

New data also is indicative of SARS-COV-2 being more of a threat to blood than previously known. The virus appears to attack red blood cells, hemoglobin specifically, and thus robs life-sustaining oxygen from body organs and tissue. In this sense the virus is similar to malaria, and probably why the anti-malaria drug Chloroquine is show great promise as an effective treatment. Those American political figures who would prohibit Chloroquine as a treatment reveal themselves to support a different agenda, one that is diametrically opposed to the health and well-being of the general public.

No one is immune to SARS-COV-2. Saints and Sinners are equally susceptible to infection.

I am now convinced that God is using this crisis as a final warning since society has replaced Him with a plethora of idol worshipping. These idols are Pro Sports, Musicians, Cinema stars, and you name it. He has taken away all of these from us for the time being as a final warning to put Him first, to "Have no other gods before Me."

This is not judgment; it is a warning of humankind's own making. A final warning.

24 March 2020: This SITREP  is to place the nCoV-19 in the proper perspective, as the above graphic very successfully illustrates. Click on it to enlarge. Make a note of the number and severity of the pestilences since about 1800 AD following the century gap from 1700-1800. And there's nCoV-19 at the very bottom of the graphic. A proper perspective.

The corporate global media has done everything in its power to create abject pandemonium. They have been very successful in this, as most of us have seen or experienced directly in the last week alone. The exacerbated seeds of fear planted by the media, political figures, and yes, wild-eyed conspiracists, have been abetted by one of the key inherent attributes of this particular corona virus - it's contagiousness is truly extraordinary. This has led many to opine that it is a man-made (Chinese Communist) biological weapon. Nevertheless, Eschatology Today notes that there are still far too many believing Christians who've become caught up in the media-driven pandemonium over nCoV-19!

Look closer at the italicized key word above. Pandemonium. It literally means a place of (pan = all; demonium = place of demons) "all demons." It is just such an appropriate a word to use because the inculcated abject fear is demonically driven. Eschatology Today recently highlighted and provided exegesis on Matthew 24:3-8. This is where the believing Christian should be firmly anchored, not in the corporate media-driven pandemonium gripping the world. 

Who among us does not see that we are still here with the Holy Spirit during these days which Jesus called "the beginning of sorrows?" And therefore, in line with Paul and his Spirit-inspired words to the ancient Thessalonian church (2 Thessalonians 2), demonic evil remains restrained. Eschatology Today believes that we are being given a mild taste of what it will be like on the Earth after the Harpazo. Eschatology Today firmly believes we should use this as a witnessing tool. These "beginning of sorrows days" are not even close to what will occur on this earth when Jesus commences opening the seven scrolls as seen in Revelation 6

'And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.' (Matthew 28:18-20)

Global SITREP A10-20: A Continuing Crisis with Apocalyptic Iran

The five Kataib Hezbollah sites
struk by CJTFOIR aircraft around Baghdad
UPDATED - 14 March 2020: With the Iranian Twelver leadership battling COVID-19 among their ranks, the order was given to their strongest Iraqi PMF proxy force, Kataib Hezbollah, to strike the CJTF-OIR base at Camp Taji north of Baghdad. Camp Taji is a coalition base populated by troops from the many nations in the anti-ISIS coalition and both the Iraqi Army and National Guard which they train. 

CJTF-OIR aircraft struck the five targets in the illustration above. Those sites were storing Iranian-suppiled advanced conventional weapons. The strikes caused serious damage and killed several enemy combatants, possibly including an Iranian general. They were executed with the expectation that further Katyusha rocket attacks would not occur anytime soon. That expectation was in error.

This morning Camp Taji is under rocket attack once again with several rockets impacting the base in broad daylight. This attack is breaking news of the past half hour (04:20 AM EDT) so specific details are not yet known. However, Iraqi military sources say there have been casualties among personnel of the "Air Defense Command" at camp Taji.

The CJTF-OIR response should be imminent.

Update 28 March 2020: The military response did occur and it was massive. An entire IRGC-QF and Iraqi Shi'a militia base in Albukamal, Dier Ez-Zor Province, Syria was annihilated. Not a single above or below ground structure remains. Dozens of enemy troops were wiped out. The location is now just empty desert.

Global SITREP A9-20: Big Operations Coming and Ongoing

Merkava Mk4 MBT
UPDATE BELOW 24 February 2020: All indications point towards the IDF launching major military operations to fundamentally if not radically change the situation in Gaza. Such an operation could easily expand to operations against other military adversaries in the north.

Exact execution date/time is unknown, but it is close, possibly even within a week or so after the new election. The Likud currently leads in polling data, so PM Netanyahu may believe he has a free hand to do what has been promised for so long in the near term.

Map from Global SITREP C10-18  07SEP20`8
28 February 2020: Based upon the prophecy in Jeremiah 49:23-27 Eschatology Today has multipleblog posts anticipating a mjaor escalation in the fighting in northwestern Syria (Idlib Province) for the better part of two years. 

This morning an emergency meeting of NATO, under Article 4 of the NATO charter, will occur at Turkey's request following an airstrike last evening by the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) on Turkish armed forces in Idlib. The SAAF strike killed 33 Turkish soldiers. In retaliation Turkish airstrikes have been pounding a broad range of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions and depots for hours on end, with the Turkish defense ministry estimating the neutralizing of at least 300 SAA troops, and other foreign sources estimating only a couple dozen SAA troops have been killed in the ongoing retaliation. 

Thus, the crisis between Turkey and Russia/Iran-backed Syria has reached an unprecedented level of escalation. Additionally, multiple intelligence reports confirm that two Russian naval frigates armed with Kalibur-NK cruise missiles have deployed the Mediterranean Sea from the RussianBlack Sea Fleet. One Russian lawmaker has directly threatened the Turkish forces. The cruise missiles almost certainly would be used against Turkish forces. Ironically, the Turkish forces in Idlib are there under an agreement with Russia to defend ethnic Turks from the SAA. Turkey and Russia are no where near being allies, even Iran is predicting a Turkish defeat in Syria.

In southern Syria last night there was a significant engagement between IDF attack helicopters and "Syrian" troops in the area between Hader and Quneitra on the Golan. The "Syrian" troops could be a mix of SAA, Hezbollah and IRGC-QF troops who are well-known to disguise themselves in SAA uniforms. There were two separate IDF heliborne strikes yesterday. In the first a high-level Hezbollah officer, Imad Tawil, was reportedly killed; in the second several of the "Syrian" troops were severely injured. These troops have been busy establishing forward combat positions on the Golan for IRGC-QF operations against Israel.

New developments today may resolve some of the ambiguities in current OSINT reporting. Watching closely...

Turkish Bayraktar TB2 UAV
UPDATE 10 March 2020: The crisis discussed above can now be understood in very clear terms. The all but full-scale war in Idlib, which had a good chance of pitting Turkey directly against Russian forces in Syria, resulted in an unambiguous Turkish victory. 

The hundreds of Syrian tanks and armored vehicles that were destroyed in and around the town of Saraqeb owe their miserable fate largely to the Turkish drone imaged above, the Bayraktar TB2. The relatively cheap drone was instrumental in not only halting the Syrians in their tracks but in getting Vladimir Putin's undivided attention. This resulted in the Erdogan-Putin summit and ceasefire agreement of last Thursday. Putin's attention was piqued by the fact that Turkey has sold several of the Bayraktar TB2 drones to Ukraine which could easily be turned loose on pro-Russian forces in eastern Ukraine to devastating effect.

Skirmishing in Idlib is sporadic, but these are nothing like the pitched battle of two weeks ago which destroyed the Syrian Army day and night without cessation. Russia could have intervened directly, but the cost over a small province such as Idlib was obviously not something Putin would go all-in on. So, for the moment a fragile ceasefire remains in place. Hundred of Turkish Army reinforcements have flooded into Idlib during the present lull. And that's all this is, a lull in the fighting.

Global SITREP A8-20: Situation Chaotic

Turkish Army advances in Idlib
12 February 2020: Once again we're back with an eye on Syria. The situation there continues to deteriorate. Aside from the IAF strikes in recent days against Iranian encroachment, which the Russians say could lead to all-out war between Syria and Israel with Russia supporting Syria, we also have the increasing likelihood of all-out war between Turkey and Syria. 

And where else would this erupt in full but in the same general locale as we've been looking at for some time now - northwest Syria, the province of Idlib. Remember how Jeremiah 49:23-27 specifically identified this region! And the Turkish leadership also threatens today to attack Syrian forces anywhere in Syria, including Damascus. Wars and rumors of war. 

And all the grotesque things (famine, pestilence) that come with war which are making northwestern Syria a humanitarian catastrophe. Since the Syrian, Iranian and Russian military offensive began in February 2019 over 1 million refugees have been pushed towards the Turkish border; those who refuse to be pushed out (ethnic cleansing) are massacred by indiscriminant airstrikes and shelling of civilian neighborhoods, hospitals and schools. No question about war crimes taking place. But these are still the beginning of sorrows.

Speaking of which, a plague of locusts in East Africa will most certainly increase the already rampant famine there and even further afield. The 2019-nCoV is now beyond all attempts to contain and control it, and it's not the only viral outbreak occurring. Then there are the quakes rumbling around the globle, Japan, Papua New Guinea and Iran being the most recent. All these things are occurring simultaneously around the globe, and people just go about their daily routines in other places. Just as we've been told it would be. Our focus is on Bible prophecy, as always.
