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)
