The Warfare Prayer – Engaging the Battle – Deliverance Prayer through Warfare

The Warfare Prayer - Engaging the Battle - Deliverance Prayer through Warfare

“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the victor’s crown, the life God has promised to those who love him.” – James 1:12

Engaging in the Battle

We need tools in spiritual warfare as well. It has been the underlying purpose of this book to provide practical, usable information and insight into the waging of a winning warfare.

The world, the flesh, and the devil will be continuously defeated if we use the weapons of our warfare. The Lord has provided all the tools we need. The Lord Jesus Christ has provided all of our victory. He used the same tools He has provided us in winning the battle. His victory is our victory.

It remains our responsibility to use these weapons so graciously provided in His grace. Every time you use them you’ll thank God for the tools of victory He has provided. Just as I think with fond remembrance of the man who gave me the tool box when I use my carpenter’s tools, so your heart will reach out in an ever deepening gratitude to your Lord.

In previous chapters, importance of doctrinal truth and doctrinal praying was intended to be lifted high. Doctrine, God’s unchanging truth, is mighty in defeating our enemies. This truth must get deep into our souls. This can only come about as we gain understanding of the Holy Word of God and then use that Word aggressively in our lives.

With the permission and approval of Dr. Victor Matthews, professor of theology at the Grand Rapids Baptist Bible College and Seminary, I include here some very fine helps in keeping doctrinal truth in the forefront of your warfare.

“The Daily Affirmation of Faith” was written by Dr. Matthews to provide a concise, clear statement of the truth of the Word of God as it applies to our victory. I commend this affirmation for daily reading aloud on the part of those who are experiencing intense warfare. It will do much to build spiritual foundation into your soul. It will keep the ground of your victory aggressively in action against your enemies. Study the texts of Scripture for your own enlightenment and edification.

The Daily Affirmation of Faith

“Today I deliberately choose to submit myself fully to God as He has made Himself known to me through the Holy Scripture which I honestly accept as the only inspired, infallible, authoritative standard for all life and practice. In this day I will not judge God, His work, myself, or others on the basis of feelings or circumstances.

  1. I recognize by faith that the triune God is worthy of all honor, praise, and worship as the Creator, Sustainer, and End of all things. I confess that God, as my Creator, made me for Himself. In this day I therefore choose to live for Him (Rev 5:9,10; Is 43:1,7,21; Rev 4:11).

  2. I recognize by faith that God loved me and chose me in Jesus Christ before time began (Eph 1:1-7).

  3. I recognize by faith that God has proven His love to me in sending His Son to die in my place, in whom every provision has already been made for my past, present, and future needs through His representative work, and that I have been quickened, raised, seated with Jesus Christ in the heavenlies, and anointed with the Holy Spirit (Ro 5:6-11; 8:28; Phil 1:6; 4:6,7,13,19; Eph 1:3; 2:5,6; Ac 2:1-4,33).

  4. I recognize by faith that God has accepted me, since I have received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior (Jn 1:12; Eph 1:6); that He has forgiven me (Eph 1:7); adopted me into His family, assuming every responsibility for me (Jn 17:11,17; Eph 1:5; Phil 1:6); given me eternal life (Jn 3:36; I Jn 5:9-13); applied the perfect righteousness of Christ to me so that I am now justified (Ro 5:1; 8:3,4; 10:4); made me complete in Christ (Col 2:10); and offers Himself to me as my daily sufficiency through prayer and the decisions of faith (I Co 1:30; Col 1:27; Gal 2:20; Jn 14:13,14; Mt 21:22; Ro 6:1-19; Heb 4:1-3,11).

  5. I recognize by faith that the Holy Spirit has baptized me into the Body of Christ (I Co 12:13); sealed me (Eph 1:13,14); anointed me for life and service (Ac 1:8; Jn 7:37-39); seeks to lead me into a deeper walk with Jesus Christ (Jn 14:16-18; 15:26,27; 16:13-15; Ro 8:11-16); and to fill my life with Himself (Eph 5:18).

  6. I recognize by faith that only God can deal with sin and only God can produce holiness of life. I confess that in my salvation my part was only to receive Him and that He dealt with my sin and saved me. Now I confess that in order to live a holy life, I can only surrender to His will and receive Him as my sanctification; trusting Him to do whatever may be necessary in my life, without and within, so I may be enabled to live today in purity, freedom, rest and power for His glory (Jn 1:12; I Co 1:30; II Co 9:8; Gal 2:20; Heb 4:9; I Jn 5:4; Jude 24).

Having confessed that God is worthy of all praise, that the Scriptures are the only authoritative standard, that only God can deal with sin and produce holiness of life, I again recognize my total dependence upon Him and submission to Him. I accept the truth that praying in faith is absolutely necessary for the realization of the will and grace of God in my daily life.

Recognizing that faith is a total response to God by which the daily provisions the Lord has furnished in Himself are appropriated, I therefore make the following decisions of faith:

  1. For this day (Heb 3:6,13,15; 4:7) I make the decision of faith to surrender wholly to the authority of God as He has revealed Himself in the Scripture to obey Him. I confess my sin, face the sinful reality of my old nature, and deliberately choose to walk in the light, in step with Christ, throughout the hours of this day (Ro 6:16-20; Phil 2:12,13; I Jn 1:7,9).

  2. For this day I make the decision of faith to surrender wholly to the authority of God as revealed in the Scripture–to believe Him. I accept only His Word as final authority. I now believe that since I have confessed my sin He has forgiven and cleansed me (I Jn 1:9). I accept at full value His Word of promise to be my sufficiency and rest, and will conduct myself accordingly (Ex 33:1; I Co 1:30; II Co 9:8; Phil 4:19).

  3. For this day I make the decision of faith to recognize that God has made every provision so that I may fulfill His will and calling. Therefore, I will not make any excuse for my sin and failure (I Th 5:24).

  4. For this day I make the decision of faith deliberately to receive from God that provision which He has made for me. I renounce all self-effort to live the Christian life and to perform God’s service; renounce all sinful praying which asks God to change circumstances and people so that I may be more spiritual; renounce all drawing back from the work of the Holy Spirit within and the call of God without; and renounce all nonbiblical motives, goals, and activities which serve my sinful pride.

— I now sincerely receive Jesus Christ as my sanctification, particularly as my cleansing from the old nature, and ask the Holy Spirit to apply to me the work of Christ accomplished for me in the crucifixion. In cooperation with and dependence upon Him, I obey the command to “put off the old man” (Ro 6:1-14; I Co 1:30; Gal 6:14; Eph 4:22).

— I now sincerely receive Jesus Christ as my sanctification, particularly as my enablement moment by moment to live above sin, and ask the Holy Spirit to apply to me the work of the resurrection so that I may walk in newness of life. I confess that only God can deal with my sin and only God can produce holiness and the fruit of the Spirit in my life. In cooperation with and dependence upon Him, I obey the command to “put on the new man” (Ro 6:1-4; Eph 4:24).

— I now sincerely receive Jesus Christ as my deliverance from Satan and take my position with Him in the heavenlies, asking the Holy Spirit to apply to me the work of the ascension. In His Name I submit myself to God and stand against all of Satan’s influence and subtlety. In cooperation with and dependence upon God, I obey the command to “resist the devil” (Eph 1:20- 23; 2:5; 4:27; 6:10-18; Col 1:13; Ja 4:7; I Pe 3:22; 5:89).

— I now sincerely receive the Holy Spirit as my anointing for every aspect of life and service for today. I fully open my life to Him to fill me afresh in obedience to the command to “be filled with the Holy Spirit” (Eph 5:18; Jn 7:37-39; 14:16,17; 15:26,27; 16:7-15; Ac 1:8).

“Having made this confession and these decisions of faith, I now receive God’s promised rest for this day (Heb 4:1-13). Therefore, I relax in the trust of faith, knowing that in the moment of temptation, trial, or need, the Lord Himself will be there as my strength and sufficiency (I Co 10:13).”

The Warfare Prayer

Another doctrinal tool that has proved of great benefit to me and to many others is the “Warfare Prayer” composed by Dr. Matthews. As a theologian, his unique and thorough way of including sound doctrine in this prayer is most helpful. I would urge anyone facing obvious spiritual warfare to use this prayer daily. It is good to read it aloud as a prayer unto the Lord. Eventually one will be able to incorporate the doctrinal truths expressed into his own prayer life without reading it.

The devil hates this prayer. Usually before working with anyone who has deep demonic affliction, I will request that we read this prayer in unison. Many times the oppressed one can read only with great difficulty. Sometimes sight problems, voice problems, or mind confusion become so intense that the afflicted person can continue only with great effort.

It is the truth of God that Satan cannot resist, and he vigorously fights it being applied against him. Those serious about warfare should daily use a prayer of this type along with other prayer examples shared in this book.


THE WARFARE PRAYER

Heavenly Father, I bow in worship and praise before You. I cover myself with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ as my protection during this time of prayer. I surrender myself completely and unreservedly in every area of my life to Yourself. I do take a stand against all the workings of Satan that would hinder me in this time of prayer, and I address myself only to the true and living God and refuse any involvement of Satan in my prayer.

[Satan, I command you, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, to leave my presence with all your demons, and I bring the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ between us.]

Heavenly Father, I worship You, and I give You praise. I recognize that You are worthy to receive all glory and honor and praise. I renew my allegiance to You and pray that the blessed Holy Spirit would enable me in this time of prayer.

I am thankful, heavenly Father, that You have loved me from past eternity, that You sent the Lord Jesus Christ into the world to die as my substitute that I would be redeemed. I am thankful that the Lord Jesus Christ came as my representative, and that through Him You have completely forgiven me; You have given me eternal life; You have given me the perfect righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ so I am now justified. I am thankful that in Him You have made me complete, and that You have offered Yourself to me to be my daily help and strength.

Heavenly Father, come and open my eyes that I might see how great You are and how complete Your provision is for this new day. I do, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, take my place with Christ in the heavenlies with all principalities and powers (powers of darkness and wicked spirits) under my feet.

I am thankful that the victory the Lord Jesus Christ won for me on the cross and in His resurrection has been given to me and that I am seated with the Lord Jesus Christ in the heavenlies; therefore, I declare that all principalities and powers and all wicked spirits are subject to me in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I am thankful for the armor You have provided, and I put on the girdle of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the sandals of peace, the helmet of salvation. I lift up the shield of faith against all the fiery darts of the enemy, and take in my hand the sword of the spirit, the Word of God, and use Your Word against all the forces of evil in my life; and I put on this armor and live and pray in complete dependence upon You, blessed Holy Spirit.

I am grateful, heavenly Father, that the Lord Jesus Christ spoiled all principalities and powers and made a show of them openly and triumphed over them in Himself. I claim all that victory for my life today. I reject out of my life all the insinuations, the accusations, and the temptations of Satan.

I affirm that the Word of God is true, and I choose to live today in the light of God’s Word. I choose, heavenly Father, to live in obedience to You and in fellowship with Yourself. Open my eyes and show me the areas of my life that would not please You. Work in my life that there be no ground to give Satan a foothold against me.

Show me any area of weakness. Show me any area of my life that I must deal with so that I would please You. I do in every way today stand for You and the ministry of the Holy Spirit in my life.

By faith and in dependence upon You, I put off the old man and stand into all the victory of the crucifixion where the Lord Jesus Christ provided cleansing from the old nature. I put on the new man and stand into all the victory of the resurrection and the provision He has made for me there to live above sin.

Therefore, in this day, I put off the old nature with its selfishness, and I put on the new nature with its love. I put off the old nature with its fear and I put on the new nature with its courage. I put off the old nature with its weakness and I put on the new nature with its strength. I put off today the old nature with all its deceitful lusts and I put on the new nature with all its righteousness and purity.

I do in every way stand into the victory of the ascension and the glorification of the Son of God where all principalities and powers were made subject to Him, and I claim my place in Christ victorious with Him over all the enemies of my soul. Blessed Holy Spirit, I pray that You would fill me. Come into my life, break down every idol and cast out every foe.

I am thankful, heavenly Father, for the expression of Your will for my daily life as You have shown me in Your Word. I therefore claim all the will of God for today.

I am thankful that You have blessed me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I am thankful that You have begotten me unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. I am thankful that You have made a provision so that today I can live filled with the Spirit of God with love and joy and self-control in my life. And I recognize that this is Your will for me, and I therefore reject and resist all the endeavors of Satan and of his demons to rob me of the will of God.

I refuse in this day to believe my feelings, and I hold up the shield of faith against all the accusations and against all the insinuations that Satan would put in my mind. I claim the fullness of the will of God for today.

I do, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, completely surrender myself to You, heavenly Father, as a living sacrifice. I choose not to be conformed to this world. I choose to be transformed by the renewing of my mind, and I pray that You would show me Your will and enable me to walk in all the fullness of the will of God today.

I am thankful, heavenly Father, that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, to the casting down of imaginations and every high thing that exalted itself against the knowledge of God, and to bring every thought into obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore in my own life today I tear down the strongholds of Satan, and I smash the plans of Satan that have been formed against me. I tear down the strongholds of Satan against my mind, and I surrender my mind to You, blessed Holy Spirit.

I affirm, heavenly Father, that You have not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. I break and smash the strongholds of Satan formed against my emotions today, and I give my emotions to You. I smash the strongholds of Satan formed against my will today, and I give my will to You, and choose to make the right decisions of faith. I smash the strongholds of Satan formed against my body today, and I give my body to You, recognizing that I am Your temple; and I rejoice in Your mercy and Your goodness.

Heavenly Father, I pray that now through this day You would quicken me; show me the way that Satan is hindering and tempting and lying and counterfeiting and distorting the truth in my life. Enable me to be the kind of person that would please You. Enable me to be aggressive in prayer. Enable me to be aggressive mentally and to think Your thoughts after You, and to give You Your rightful place in my life.

Again, I now cover myself with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and pray that You, blessed Holy Spirit, would bring all the work of the crucifixion, all the work of the resurrection, all the work of the glorification, and all the work of Pentecost into my life today. I surrender myself to You.

I refuse to be discouraged. You are the God of all hope. You have proven Your power by resurrecting Jesus Christ from the dead, and I claim in every way Your victory over all satanic forces active in my life, and I reject these forces; and I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ with thanksgiving. Amen.

End Time Prophecy Headlines -Israel in fresh ATTACK on Iranian BEAST as they demand more countries quit nuclear deal

End Time Prophecy Headlines -Israel in fresh ATTACK on Iranian BEAST as they demand more countries quit nuclear deal

ISRAEL launched a fresh verbal attack on Iran yesterday when its President called on Germany to join the US in starving “the Iranian beast” and added that it “is the only way to guarantee stability in the world”.

During German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit to Israel, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin received her in the disputed city of Jerusalem in the hopes of discussing Iran.

Mr Rivlin hoped to convince the Chancellor to end German business with Iran and to stop circumventing economic restrictions put in place by US President Donald Trump.

While Israel and the US have accused Iran of attempting to destabilise the Middle East by supporting hostile movements, developing ballistic weapons and secretly pursuing nuclear weapons, Germany has been one of the parties involved in trying to salvage the nuclear agreement that was scrapped by the US earlier this year.

Mr Rivlin said: “From our point of view, now is the time to join the effective sanctions on Iran and not to circumvent them.

“The Iranian beast must be starved and not fed.

“This is the only way to guarantee the stability of the world.”

In 2015, Germany, along with the UK, US, Iran, China, France and Russia, formed an agreement which would see Iran limit its nuclear enrichment in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions that have devastated the Iranian economy for years.

In addition to restricting their nuclear activities, Iran also allowed for their nuclear sites to be monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

This agreement deeply angered Israel and Saudi Arabia as well as conservative politicians in both Washington and Tehran who were suspicious of each other’s intentions.

Then, in 2018, Trump announced the US withdrawal from the agreement stating that Iran was not complying with the deal despite the IAEA finding no evidence of such activities.

In response to the US’s withdrawal, German foreign Minister Heiko Maas suggested the EU form a new payment channel in order to continue providing businesses the opportunity to continue there work in Iran despite Us threats of retaliation.

While Mrs Merkel was hesitant with this idea, the EU announced they would be creating this channel that would not use US dollars or US institutions.

This announcement angered the US and Israel who accused Europe of “appeasing Iran”.

In a speech to the UN General Assembly, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: “Instead of coddling Iran’s dictators, join the US and Israel and most of the Arab world in supporting new sanctions against a regime that endangers all of us and all of the world.”

Despite opposing views on how to handle Iran, Chancellor Merkel and Prime Minister Netanyahu agreed they both opposed Iran’s presence in Syria.

Mr Netanyahu said: “I know, Angela. that you are committed to a safe and stable Middle East.

“I think that the strong ties between Israel and Germany can serve as an example for this region and for the entire world.

“We overcame the horrors of the past. We never forget them, and you will never forget them.

“But we have transformed our relationship into a warm and constructive friendship.

“That does not mean we have no differences of opinion.”

Mrs Merkel said she and her government are convinced and share Israel’s position in preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

She added: “Where we are not always united is on the path to this goal.”

Breaking End Time News – Iran is WORLD BANK for terrorists!’ US security chief PILES PRESSURE on Tehran

Iran is WORLD BANK for terrorists!’ US security chief PILES PRESSURE on Tehran

IRAN has been “the world’s central banker for terrorism since 1979”, Donald Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton has said during a fiery press conference today.

Breaking End Time News – Iran is WORLD BANK for terrorists!’ US security chief PILES PRESSURE on Tehran

He also indicated the US would be highly reluctant to offer any waivers to countries seeking to buy oil from the Islamic Republic.

And the hawkish appointee of current US President Donald Trump also took a swipe at the administration of his boss’s predecessor with a clear implication that had been soft of terror.

Mr Bolton has kept up a steady stream of rhetoric in the direction of Tehran in recent days, yesterday describing it as a “rogue regime” as the US officially terminated the bilateral Treaty of Amity signed with Iran in 1955.

Prior to this, he called for an investigation into Israeli claims of a “secret atomic warehouse” within the Islamic republic, and warned President Hassan Rouhani there would be “hell to pay” if they harmed the US or its citizens.

Tensions ratcheted up still further after Donald Trump’s election as President in 2016, especially after his decision to pull the US out of the JPCOA accord with the aimed at preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons, an agreement Mr Trump claimed Iran was in breach of.

Mr Bolton was a strong advocate of withdrawing from the deal.

Ever since then, Washington and Tehran have regularly lambasted each other, with Mr Trump warning Mr Rouhani of “consequences the likes of which few have ever suffered” if he ever threatening the US.

This was an apparent reference to a speech days earlier in which Mr Rouhani said a war between the two nations would be “the mother of all conflicts”.

For his part, Mr Rouhani has been angered not just by the US’s decision to pulling out of the agreement, which will result in tough economic sanctions against Iran, but also comments by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo which were widely interpreted as seeking to encourage anti-Government demonstrations within his country.

Prophecy End Time News -Iranian General vows to destroy Israel in furious attack

Iran-General-Israel-Iranian General vows to destroy Israel in furious attack

A top Iranian General has vowed to destroy Israel, warning “there will soon be no way to escape but the sea”, raising fears of a major outbreak of conflict in the volatile Middle East. The comments were made by Brigadier General Hossein Salami, second-in-command of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards force, during a speech to his troops in the city of Isfahan. Referring to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin

Netanyahu, he said: “I tell the Prime Minister of the Zionist regime that he should practice swimming in the Mediterranean. “Because soon there will be no way to escape but the sea.” The Iranian regime consistently refers to the Israeli Government as “the Zionist regime” as a way of denying its legitimacy. General Salami went on to claim that Israel could be defeated by terror group Hezbollah, which Iran supports.

General Salami went on to claim that Israel could be defeated by terror group Hezbollah, which Iran supports.

He claimed: “The Zionist regime does not have any true elements of state and government and it is not at the level to present a threat to us.

“Hezbollah is enough to defeat it.”

The Iranian regime provides Hezbollah, which formed in 1985 in response to Israeli intervention in Lebanon, with weapons and money.

Hezbollah is believed to have up to 150,000 rockets and missiles stored away across Lebanon.

A 2006 conflict between Israel and Hezbollah, which ended in a stalemate, saw thousands of rockets fired towards Israeli cities indiscriminately from southern Lebanon.

Both Iran and Hezbollah have gained a foothold in Syria over recent years, where their forces are backing the regime of Bashar al-Assad against rebel groups.

Israel sees this intervention as a threat to its national security, and has conducted air strikes on sites linked to Hezbollah or Iran.

Over the past year and a half alone more than 200 strikes have been reported.

Last month there was a major international incident after Syrian forces, trying to respond to an Israeli attack, accidentally shot down a Russian surveillance plane killing 15 people.

In response, the Russians provided the Syrian military with more sophisticated S-300 surface-to-air missiles.

Also last month, Mr Netanyahu used a UN appearance to accuse Iran of continuing its alleged nuclear weapons programme via a “secret atomic warehouse”.

Iran strongly denies the accusations, with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif mocking Mr Netanyahu’s presentation as an “arts and crafts show”.

End Time Israel News – Golden Vessel Used in Jewish Ceremony for First Time Since Second Temple

Golden Vessel Used in Jewish Ceremony for First Time Since Second Temple - IPRYAPRAYER - End TIme News

On Thursday, a bit of the former glory of the temple was witnessed by 300 people who took part in the full-dress reenactment of the Sukkot water-libation ceremony. The group set out from the Dung Gate in the old city of Jerusalem in the early evening, making its way down the steep steps leading to the Shiloah Spring. Led by six Kohanim (Jewish men descended from Aaron the priest) and accompanied by music, the crowd sang and danced as they passed from the archaeological remains of the ancient city of David,

through an Arab village, to the spring which was used in temple times. The Kohanim wore vestments that were made according to biblical standards for use in the temple, and several played long silver trumpets that had been prepared by the Temple Institute for use in the third temple. One Kohen carried a silver vessel used for the libation, while the high priest carried a spectacular gold vessel prepared this year for this year’s service. “A vessel like this has not been seen since the temples stood,” Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin and an organizer of the event, told Breaking Israel News.

The procession then climbed to a plaza overlooking the valley, where a model altar had been constructed of wood. The ceremony, carried out precisely as it was performed in the temple, took place closer to the Temple Mount than any other temple reenactment thus far. An equal amount of water and wine were poured into two separate containers. The two liquids then spilled out onto the altar through openings in the containers.

The reenactment altar was decorated with large branches from a willow tree to replicate how the altar in the temple was decorated for the holiday.

This was followed by the priestly blessing.

In temple times, a libation of water was made together with the pouring out of wine at the morning service on the last six days of the week-long Sukkot holiday.

Though not explicitly mandated in the Torah, the water libation is part of the oral tradition passed down from Moses. Sukkot is a joyous holiday, and the water libation was the focal point of this joy. In the temple, the ceremony would take 15 hours with accompanying celebrations lasting all night until the temple service began again the next morning.

“The basis of Sukkot is universal, bringing bounty to all 70 nations, as symbolized by the 70 bulls brought as sacrifices throughout the festival,” Rabbi Weiss said. “The world is facing many universal threats and coming together is vital. The temple was a way in which the nations could come together in holiness, each nation bringing their aspect of holiness and connection with Hashem in order to avert these universal threats.”

“This must necessarily be done from a biblical basis and from Jerusalem,” Rabbi Weiss said, citing a verse from the Prophets.

And the many peoples shall go and say: “Come, Let us go up to the Mount of Hashem, To the House of the God of Yaakov; That He may instruct us in His ways, And that we may walk in His paths.” For instruction shall come forth from Tzion, The word of Hashem from Yerushalayim. (Isa. 2:3, The Israel Bible).

The United Nations imitated this by establishing Israel as one of their first acts but they have strayed since then, the most egregious act being their attacks on Jerusalem which were attempts to delay the building of the Third Temple. President Trump clearly recognizes this and has called on the UN to either fix themselves or to disband.”

At the ceremony, Rabbi Azriel Ariel announced the birth of the red heifer.

“This is the beginning of a long process that will, God willing, allow us to purify all of Israel, Rabbi Ariel said. “This is not us forcing God’s hand. We are simply performing mitzvoth (Torah commandments) as given to us in the Torah.”

He explained that the actual preparation of the ashes will be in two years. Until that time, it is considered an egla (calf) by Jewish law. At the age of 2, it becomes classified as a para (heifer) and can be sacrificed and burned, its ashes used in the purification ritual.

In the meantime, the rabbis will be studying the relevant laws, and the Kohanim will be preparing for the ritual.

Yellowstone volcano warning: ‘SUPER ERUPTION’ in US park is LIKELY, claims USGS scientist

THE Yellowstone volcano is “likely” to be involved in a series of new “supereruptions” in the future because of its position at the end of a chain of major active volcanoes, USGS scientist Larry Mastin warned.

The USGS explosive volcanoes expert predicted that the Yellowstone supervolcano is likely to erupt unleashing as much as 1,000 cubic km of ash because of previous supereruptions in the area.

Dr Mastin cited three previous eruptions as evidence renewed explosive activity from the US national park volcano is “likely” in the future – but insisted that forecasting a time frame would be difficult as eruptions are not strictly “periodical.”

Speaking to Coast to Coast AM, the volcanologist said: “Yellowstone lies at the northeastern end of a long chain of major volcanoes that have produced super eruptions for a period going back at least 15 million years. So it seems likely that there will be more supereruptions in Yellowstone.

“It’s hard to say it is overdue , it’s not really periodic enough to say ‘ok, we should be having one anytime,’ and if you look at the activity going on at the caldera right now in terms of seismic activity it’s basically doing what it has been doing for the last few decades.”

The USGS said it does not know when Yellowstone will erupt but deep volcanic activity, caldera uplift and frequent earthquakes are all reminders the supervolcano is far from being dormant.

By some estimates, the US might have to wait for another one or two million years before the supervolcano finally blows.

Dr Mastin continued: “There was a very large eruption about 2.1 million years ago. There was a super eruption about 1.2 million years ago. A supereruption basically is the largest class of explosive eruptions on Earth. They are eruptions that expel more than 1,000 cubic km of ash.

“Then the most recent of this supereruptions at Yellowstone was about 600,000 years ago so there’s been three in the past 2.1 million years. But it’s hard to say it is overdue , it’s not really periodic enough to say ‘ok, we should be having one anytime,’ and if you look at the activity going on at the caldera right now in terms of seismic activity it’s basically doing what it has been doing for the last few decades.”

A Yellowstone volcano eruption could prove destructive for the Western half of the States as it could cover crops in the midwest with at least 4 inches of ash. It would spout dangerous gases such as sulfur dioxide leading to acid rain and global cooling.

Yellowstone National Park is found in the northwest of the United States, spread across the corners of Wyoming, Idaho and Montana.

Since that last “caldera-forming” super-eruption 640,000 year ago, the USGS has recorded at least 80 nonexplosive events.

The USGS said: “Of these eruptions, at least 27 where rhyolite lava flows in the caldera, 13 were rhyolite lava flows outside the caldera and 40 were basalt vents outside the caldera.

“Some of the eruptions were approximately the size of the devastating 1991 Pinatubo eruption in the Philippines, and several were much larger.

“The most recent volcanic eruption at Yellowstone, a lava flow on the Pitchstone Plateau, occurred 70,000 years ago.”

End Time Prophecy News – Rabbi warns that Yellowstone Supervolcano will be instrumental in the Last Days

Yellowstone-volcano-eruption-Bible-prophecy-end-of-the-world-1028552

Yellowstone volcano eruption: What does the Bible say about Yellowstone erupting?

YELLOWSTONE volcano erupting is a terrifying prospect – and one a biblical expert bizarrely believes was foretold in a Bible prophecy about the end of the world.

Bizarre claims have been made to suggest a cataclysmic Yellowstone volcano eruption will “purify” the planet in the end days.

The Wyoming supervolcano, one of the biggest in the world, will supposedly erupt together with tremendous earthquakes.

A biblical prophet in Israel believes two-thirds of the planet will drown in fire when the world comes to an end.

Rabbi Yitzchak Batzri, a Jerusalem-based Kabbalist, claimed the apocalyptic scenario was foretold in the Old Testament.

According to the rabbi, the world’s fiery demise was prophesied in the Book of Zachariah and the Book of Psalms.

He told Breaking Israel News the end days are described in Psalms 104:32.

The passage reads: “Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.”

The rabbi said: “This describes what will happen in the End of Days before the final redemption.

“There will be an earthquake in Israel, but it will be beneficial, opening up the Temple Mount, bringing forth living waters, purifying the city to receive the Messiah.”

Rabbi Batzri also interpreted Yellowstone volcano’s eruption from a passage in Zachariah 13:9.

Zachariah 13:9 reads: “And I will bring the third part through the fire and will refine them as silver is refined and will try them as gold is tied; they shall call on My name and I will answer them; I will say: ‘It is My people’ and they shall say: ‘Hashem is my God’.”

The Rabbi said the entire planet will be fraught with powerful earthquakes and volcano eruptions when the end days arrive.

He said the natural disasters will “purify” the world by fire “like a crucible”.

This describes what will happen in the End of Days before the final redemption

Rabbi Yitzchak Batzri

The United States Geological Survey (USGS), which monitors seismic and volcanic activity in Yellowstone National Park, fears Yellowstone erupting could have an effect on a global scale.

These would include disrupted global climate and heavy ash fallout throughout the US.

The USGS said: “The surrounding states of Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming would be affected, as well as other places in the United States and the world.

“Such eruptions usually form calderas, broad volcanic depressions created as the ground surface collapses as a result of withdrawal of partially molten rock – magma – below.

“Fortunately, the chances of this sort of eruption at Yellowstone are exceedingly small in the next few thousands of years.”

But the geological agency is not convinced the supervolcano will erupt.

Yellowstone volcano last erupted 640,000 years ago and before this last erupted 1.2 million years and two million years ago.

The probability of Yellowstone erupting again is very slim – about one in 730,000 or just 0.00014 percent.

However, the USGS said there is not enough data on past Yellowstone eruptions to make a “critical judgement” on future volcanic activity.

The USGS said: “There is no evidence that a catastrophic eruption at Yellowstone is imminent, and such events are unlikely to occur in the next few centuries.

“Scientists have also found no indication of an imminent smaller eruption of lava.”

End Time Prophecy News – The Future of Credit-Card ID Verification

End Time Prophecy News - The Future of Credit-Card ID Verification

As companies change how they verify identities, Europe offers a glimpse of what’s to come

Credit-card companies, banks and vendors are changing how they verify consumers’ identities. Passwords and PINs could become less important. Biometric analysis could become the norm.

The proving ground for the latest in payment technology is Europe, where a new law could encourage greater use of biometrics in a bid to reduce burgeoning payment fraud.

Credit-card companies, banks and vendors are changing how they verify consumers’ identities. Passwords and PINs could become less important. Biometric analysis could become the norm.

The proving ground for the latest in payment technology is Europe, where a new law could encourage greater use of biometrics in a bid to reduce burgeoning payment fraud.

Starting September 2019 in the European Union, a large portion of online payments greater than €30 (currently about $35) will require multifactor authentication. Consumers will need to use two of three things to verify transactions: something they know, like a password; something they have, like a digital device, perhaps a USB token, that identifies them; or something they are: biometric data.

Proofs based on physical characteristics, like fingerprints and faces, are slowly becoming more common. This legislation will likely cause them to surge.

Most consumers using biometrics will likely do so on their phones, many of which already have technology that payment-service providers will use to verify payments—such as Apple Inc.’s Touch ID fingerprint sensors or Face ID facial-recognition software on its iPhones.

Making the payment process frictionless could determine which providers prosper—and which languish.

“We’re helping the industry move toward biometrics as a preferred method,” says Mark Nelsen, senior vice president at Visa Inc. “Customers are getting more comfortable with those solutions, and they’re our preferred method, too.”

Another company hoping to profit from the change is Veridium, a Boston-based biometrics firm.

“We’ve built our company around trying not to change the way you interact with technology too radically,” says Chief Executive James Stickland. “You could plug in Touch ID or Face ID, and that’s great because people are used to it.”

Veridium also provides an authentication technology it calls 4 Fingers TouchlessID that turns smartphones, even older models, into fingerprint scanners.

Ease of use will be paramount to companies in the payment-services and biometrics sector. Vendors and payment-services providers “have to meet requirements on the fraud side and provide a good user experience,” says Frances Zelazny, chief marketing officer at BioCatch, a firm based in Boston. “If they can’t manage their fraud, they’ll go away,” Ms. Zelazny says. “And if they can’t manage their user experience, they’ll go away” because consumers won’t use them.

Behind the scenes, BioCatch and other biometrics companies are working on technology called behavioral biometrics. That technology allows vendors and payment providers to analyze users’ actions and habits to determine whether a transaction should be considered valid. Criteria include whether the transaction is in line with a user’s usual spending pattern, made from a familiar location, or aimed at someone who often receives payments from that user.

“With touch-screen devices, we have a lot of sensors, so we’re able to infer how you swipe, the pressure you put on the screen, how much of your finger you’d leave on the button as you pause before the next one,” says Dr. Neil Costigan, CEO of BehavioSec, a behavioral biometrics firm. “Not so much what you’re doing as how you’re doing it.”

EU guidelines say that payments of €30 to €500 will be exempt from multifactor authentication if they are judged to be sufficiently safe—a determination that behavioral biometrics can help to make. Those technologies can also be used, in certain circumstances, instead of physical biometrics as one of the three proofs required to authenticate a transaction. Smoother, more secure verification processes minimize false alarms when cards are declined, thus reducing abandoned purchases.

Still, biometric solutions face barriers to adoption. Veridium’s Mr. Stickland says: “People’s education is probably the most immature element of utilization. The end user has to be more aware.”

“What concerns us is consumer awareness,” says Visa’s Mr. Nelsen. “We know the consumer has no idea really what this regulation means.” And, he adds, “with hundreds of millions of customers making online payments, and millions of merchants receiving them, older technologies won’t disappear overnight.”

 

Meanwhile, even if customers do take to biometrics, a full rollout of the technology may take some time.

“Part of the challenge has been lethargy. We’ve seen that with chip and PIN in the U.S.,” says Mr. Stickland, referring to the card industry’s ponderous transition away from requiring signature-based payments.

As a result, he says, the move away from plastic cards—and toward mobile-based authentication—is “probably a 10-year journey, not a two-year journey. But I think plastic will be gone altogether in 10 years.”

Passwords, too, will be around for quite some time. Mr. Nelsen says that biometrics systems already in place still use passwords as backups for authentication.

“The only way to get rid of passwords is to have a number of biometrics, so if one fails, you can use another one,” he says. “We’ll start to see more biometrics used to verify identity…. You’ll walk up to the counter, use face recognition to initiate the payment, and that’s it.”

Prophecy News – TRUMP U.N. SPEECH SIGNALS DISRUPTIVE MIDEAST PEACE PLAN TO COME

Prophecy News - TRUMP U.N. SPEECH SIGNALS DISRUPTIVE MIDEAST PEACE PLAN TO COME

Trump’s second speech to the international body only briefly touched on Middle East peace. But what he said was telling.

NEW YORK — Months after the UN General Assembly voted to rebuke US President Donald Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, on Tuesday he warned the world to brace for more policy changes that would rile the status quo of a conflict that has been frozen for decades.

Trump’s second speech to the international body only briefly touched on Middle East peace. But what he said was telling and reflective of recent comments from members of his peace team who are beginning to preview a plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace that will buck conventional norms long governing the process.

The president was channeling Jared Kushner, his son-in-law leading the peace effort, who in an interview with The New York Times earlier this month, said the administration was intentionally slaughtering sacred cows of the conflict in order to disrupt the discussion.

“There were too many false realities that were created – that people worship – that I think needed to be changed,” Kushner said on the anniversary of the signing of the Oslo Accords.

Similarly, the president in his speech said the aim of peace “is advanced, not harmed, by acknowledging the obvious facts.

“America’s policy of principled realism means we will not be held hostage to old dogmas, discredited ideologies and so-called experts who have been proven wrong over the years, time and time again,” Trump told the gathering.

This is the administration’s main explanation and defense of Trump’s actions on Jerusalem, as well as its decision to defund the UN agency on Palestinian refugees which – according to the peace team – perpetuates a narrative on the status of refugees unhelpful to the pursuit of peace.

The Palestinians see in these statements tea leaves of a plan that will attempt to redefine the terms of their cause, in which they seek sovereignty and independence from Israel in a two-state solution – a term the administration has yet to use. They are already campaigning against the US proposals, which Trump aides note they have not seen.

While Trump’s comments on the peace plan were brief, they at the very least signal policy growth from a year ago, when he addressed the UN General Assembly for the first time. In that speech, he made no mention of the peace process.

Prophecy News – MEGA-PASTOR -TEN COMMANDMENTS NO LONGER APPLICABLE

Prophecy News - MEGA-PASTOR -TEN COMMANDMENTS NO LONGER APPLICABLE

WASHINGTON – A mega-pastor of one of the largest “evangelical” churches in the U.S. is attacking the Old Testament again, this time insisting Jesus rendered the Ten Commandments null and void, issuing one new law “as a replacement for everything.”

Andy Stanley, pastor of the 34,000-member North Point Community Church in suburban Atlanta, who famously advised his flock to “unhitch” from the Old Testament in a sermon last spring, has now penned an article promoting his new book saying laws such as “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” and “Thou shalt not kill” are no longer relevant to Christians living in the New Covenant era.

“You’ve heard the story before: A group of Christians puts up a monument of the Ten Commandments in a public space or on government property,” begins Stanley in his article titled, “Why do Christians want to post the Ten Commandments and not the Sermon on the Mount?” “Someone says it violates the separation of church and state. The Christians say taking it down would violate their freedom of speech. There’s some back and forth in court and both sides say some not-so-great things about the other. Rinse and repeat. But how many times have you seen Christians trying to post the text of the sermon on the mount in a public place? Or the all-encompassing commandment Jesus gave us? ‘A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another — John 13:34 The one commandment! Doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it? But if we’re going to create a monument to stand as a testament to our faith, shouldn’t it at least be a monument of something that actually applies to us?”

Stanley goes on to write that the Ten Commandments are from the Old Covenant, which he says “played a significant role in God’s creation of the nation of Israel. It gave them moral guidelines and helped separate this new nation from their neighbors. This was part of the formal agreement (or covenant) God created with his people, but Jesus’ death and resurrection signaled the end of that covenant and all the rules and regulations associated with it. Jesus didn’t issue his new command as an additional commandment to the existing list of commands. He didn’t say, ‘Here’s the 614th law.’ Jesus issued his new commandment as a replacement for everything in the existing list. Including the big ten. Just as his new covenant replaced the old covenant, Jesus’ new commandment replaced all the old commandments.”

The implications of that unequivocal statement have been staggering to other Christians who point out how the words of Jesus and the apostles seem to contradict them flatly and reject such a conclusion.

In Matthew 5:17-19, Jesus says: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

gospel-book-196“Andy Stanley is not preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom that Jesus and the apostles preached,” says Joseph Farah, author of “The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament,” which documents what he characterizes as “the miraculous, supernatural and perfect continuity of the Good News of redemption throughout both the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures.” “Nor is Stanley preaching the Gospel of personal salvation that Jesus and the apostles preached. Instead, he is preaching replacement theology – completely discarding about three-quarters of the Bible and misinterpreting what’s left.”

Farah calls Stanley’s reductionist gospel “Chick-fil-A theology,” an exegesis based on modern American Christian cultural traditions rather than the Bible.

“Participants in the new covenant (that’s Christians) are not required to obey any of the commandments found in the first part of their Bibles,” writes Stanley. “Participants in the new covenant are expected to obey the single command Jesus issued as part of his new covenant: as I have loved you, so you must love one another. The new covenant replaced the old one. The covenant established by Jesus retired the covenant God established with the nation of Israel. This is why most Christians don’t mind a little bacon with their eggs. It’s why you can’t get either at Chick-fil-A on Sunday. (If we were still taking our marching orders from the old covenant, they would be closed on Saturday.)”

Writing a response to Stanley’s new assault on the Hebrew Scriptures, Grayson Gilbert, a graduate student pursuing a masters of divinity degree at Moody Bible Institute, disputes that Jesus only left His disciples with one new law to follow. In fact, Jesus issued hundreds of commandments in the gospel accounts, while affirming the Ten Commandments and the law and the prophets in Matthew 22:37-40: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

“Interestingly enough, Stanley bypasses these verses in his discussions, though I have a feeling he would explain them away and disregard that they are drawn from Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18, which are legal texts in and of themselves given to Israel,” writes Gilbert. “Furthermore, it is plainly stated in the text itself, these are a summation of the law and prophets.”

Stanley blames the Old Testament , not misguided Christianity, for centuries of horrors and abuse of those of different beliefs: “The justifications Christians have used since the fourth century to mistreat people find their roots in old covenant practices and values. Imagine trying to leverage the Sermon on the Mount to start an inquisition, launch a crusade, or incite a pogrom against Jews. But reach back into the old covenant, and there’s plenty to work with.”

“This not only fundamentally misunderstands the nature of God, but essentially claims He has instituted a means of oppression and ill-begotten values in the Old Testament,” writes Grayson. “In other words, the Old Testament is only the foundation of violence, oppression, and so forth, rather than revealing the character and standards of God. Let me be quite frank, Andy is about as close as one can get to saying the God of the Old Testament is different than the New Testament without explicitly stating, ‘The God of the Old Testament is different than the God of the New Testament.’”

It’s not the first time Stanley has been accused of the heresy of Marcion, who took just such a position.

Stanley concludes: “While Jesus was foreshadowed in the old covenant, he did not come to extend it. He came to fulfill it, put a bow on it, and establish something entirely new. The “new” Jesus unleashed made the faith of first-century believers formidable. Their apologetic was irrefutable. Their courage, unquestionable. And the results were remarkable. Dear Christian reader: Why? Why? Why would we even be tempted to reach back beyond the cross to borrow from a covenant that was temporary and inferior to the covenant established for us at Calvary?”

“Jesus is One and the Same as the God of the Old Testament,” says Farah. “He is described in John 1 as the Creator, the maker of all things that were made and in as the One and Only Mediator between God and man in 1 Timothy 2:5. It’s not just that Jesus was foreshadowed in the Old Testament, as Stanley says. He was there at the beginning. He tells the Pharisees: ‘Before Abraham was, I am.’ In other words, Jesus referred to Himself as the great ‘I am,’ one in the same as the Father. There is no separation, no disagreement, between the Father and the Son. They are One.”

Stanley’s new book is called, “Irresistible: Reclaiming the New that Jesus Unleashed for the World.” It is currently ranked at Amazon as one of the most popular books in the “church leadership” category. Farah’s new book, prior to release, as one of the most popular in “Old Testament” category.”

“Maybe they are dueling books for a time such as this,” says Farah. “This is a teaching that must be countered by believers.”

Farah has challenged Stanley’s assertions on the irrelevance and inapplicability of the Old Testament in a series of commentaries:

End Time Prophecy News – An End-of-Days Guide to the Palestinians and Gaza

An End-of-Days Guide to the Palestinians and Gaza

As Israel’s southern border is threatened by rockets, mortars and incendiary kites, End-of-Days experts weigh in on the prospective roles that Palestinians in Gaza play in the Messianic era.
Palestinians: Spiritual Roots in Israel’s Biblical Enemy

Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, a Torah codes expert, believes that the modern day Palestinians have their spiritual roots in the Biblical Philistines.

“We can see this in the name they choose for themselves and we can also see this in their attraction for Gaza,” Rabbi Glazerson told Breaking Israel News.

He emphasized that not only was Gaza a military stronghold but it was also a major center for the Philistines’ idolatry and temple. “Their hatred for Israel is so great that it is clearly an ancient conflict and not just one from the last few decades. Their recent kite attacks, burning the fields in Israel, are precisely a desire of revenge for Samson burning the Philistine fields in a similar manner.”

He lit the torches and turned [the foxes] loose among the standing grain of the Philistines, setting fire to stacked grain, standing grain, vineyards, [and] olive trees.Judges 15:5

In a recent video on the subject, Rabbi Glazerson used a computer program that searches for equidistant letter sequences in the Bible to find the word “Palestinian” in the Torah. He found it in the book of Deuteronomy, which he explained is the section of the Bible that corresponds to the current era. The word “Palestinian” intersected with a verse that described God giving the land of Israel to the Jews.

Hashem your God will bless you in the land that Hashem your God is giving you as a hereditary portion Deuteronomy 15:4

“The Zohar (the seminal source for Jewish mysticism) states that this conflict that began in the Bible will continue until the Moshiach (Messiah)” Rabbi Glazerson said. “This is a spiritual battle which will never be solved by politics. It has to be fought on spiritual terms by learning Torah and keeping the Sabbath.”

Palestinians: A Nation That is no Nation

Rabb Levi Sudri, an award-winning Bible expert who is well-versed in esoteric sources, believes the appearance of the Palestinians is a final attempt to fix a nation that was flawed from its Biblical beginnings.

“Reincarnations are an attempt to fix things and this era, the time preceding the Messiah, is the final chance to fix problems that have their sources in the Bible. What we are seeing in the Middle East is the entire world focused on the final fixing of the Philistines. We first saw this in the Bible in Ham, the son of Noah, who was cursed for gazing on his father’s nakedness.

He said, “Cursed be Canaan; The lowest of slaves Shall he be to his brothers.” Genesis 9:25

“Abraham and Isaac tried to fix Ham by making a covenant with Abimelech the King of the Philistines, Ham’s descendants. But the language of this Biblical agreement is important today”, Rabbi Sudri emphasized.

And Abimelech said, “Here, my land is before you; settle wherever you please.” Genesis 20:15

“This covenant was broken by the Philistines in the days of Joshua, and again in the days of Saul,” Rabbi Sudri said. “It is precisely this agreement that is being broken again today.”

Rabbi Sudri noted that despite Israel’s clear military superiority, the Palestinians are succeeding in creating a challenge Israel cannot defeat.

“How can it be that Israel, with such a strong military, cannot cope with the Palestinians?,” the rabbi asked. “If there is a clear enemy, even a strong enemy, we can fight them. We cannot defeat them because the fight is on a spiritual level, the angel of one nation against the angel of another nation. Every nation has an angel but the Zohar explains that the Philistines do not have an angel.”

Rabbi Sudri referred to the Philistines as a “nation that is not a nation.”

“Every nation has a patriarch but the Philistines did not have a patriarch,” Rabbi Sudri said. “The word ‘Philistine’ is derived from the Hebrew word meaning ‘wanderers’ or ‘foreigner.’ With a real nation, you can make war or peace. Since they are not a nation, we cannot do either, neither war nor peace, with the Palestinians.”

According to Rabbi Sudri, this confrontation with the “nation that is not a nation” has a corresponding negative effect on the Jewish Nation.

“Israel is the most ancient nation, with the clearest claim to being a nation. But by entering into relations with the Palestinians, by agreeing to that definition of what is a nation, we shed doubt on our identity as a nation which is explicitly outlined in the Bible, a stronger claim to nationhood than any other nation in existence. By calling the Palestinians a nation, we have brought into doubt our claims to nationhood and our claims to our land, a claim that is clearly seen in the Bible, in archaeology and in every history book in existence.”

The Battle for Prayer

Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, believes the spiritual roots of the Palestinians goes back to Ishmael, the brother of Isaac.

“As such, his fate is to be in conflict always,” Rabbi Berger said, quoting the blessing given to Ishmael by an angel.

He shall be a wild ass of a man; His hand against everyone, And everyone’s hand against him; He shall dwell alongside of all his kinsmen.” Genesis 16:12

“His warring nature will continue until the very last moment before the Messiah,” Rabbi Berger said. “It will be the spark that brings the Messiah.”

“But the name ‘Ishmael’ means ‘God will hear,” Rabbi Berger pointed out. “By the merit of Ishmael, God heard Hagar praying in the desert. The real battle is over who God will listen to. That is why the Palestinians are concentrating on the Temple Mount, and specifically on prayer. They want to be the only nation that God listens to, and they think they can do that by preventing the Jews from praying on the Temple Mount.”

“Prayer has much more power than people realize, especially prayer in our times just before Messiah, and especially on the Temple Mount,” Rabbi Berger said. “We see this in the fact that since only Muslims are allowed to pray there, Islam is getting stronger in the world. It isn’t Islam that is getting stronger, it is the angel of Ishmael. The Temple Mount is where the final battle between Ishmael and Israel is going to be, and it is going to be a battle of prayer, a battle of the angel of Ishmael against the angel of Israel.”

‘Run for the Ship’

Rabbi Pinchas Winston, a prolific end-of-days author, believes the Palestinians are a prophesied wake-up call to motivate the Nation of Israel to focus on Messiah. To illustrate his point, he related a midrash (homiletic teaching) from the Talmud (Tractate Baba Batra 73b). According to the Talmud, Rabbah Bar Hana was traveling on a ship and went ashore to cook some food. The island turned out to be an enormous fish covered in sand. Feeling the heat of the fire, the fish turned over, sending Rabbah Bar Hana scrambling for his ship, which fortunately was ready to sail.

Rabbi Winston cited Rabbi Yaakov Lorberbaum, the rabbi of Lissa Poland in the 1800’s, known as Rabbeinu Yaakov.

“Rabbeinu Yaakov taught that this peculiar story in the Talmud is actually an allegory of what will happen in the days before Messiah,” Rabbi Winston said. “He explained the Talmud as teaching that the Jews will return to our land but we will end up ruling over another nation. The other nation will appear weak and small but they will actually turn everything upside down.”

“If the ‘boat is ready’, if the Jews are ready for Messiah, everything will be fine and we will enter into the Messiah,” Rabbi Winston explained. “If the Jews are not ready, we will ‘drown from the problems this small nation will cause us.”

Rabbi Winston sees this allegory as a perfect description of the Palestinian Intifada.

“The Intifada started in 1987, precisely 40 years after Israel became a nation,” Rabbi Winston explained. “40 represents is a complete period of gestation. A woman is pregnant for 40 sabbaths.”

“After Israel became a state, we were given a period of 40 years to show what was really conceived when Israel first became a state,” Rabbi Winston said. “We weren’t ready to ‘run for the boat’, to bring the Messiah. Since we hadn’t prepared for the Messiah, the Intifada was sent to wake us up, to push us to do what we need to bring the Messiah. In this case, the wake-up call came from a small nation that succeeded in overturning the entire nation of Israel, making us ‘run for the ship’.”

Fulfilling Zechariah 8-23 With Torah Books for Non-Jews

“Observe them faithfully, for that will be proof of your wisdom and discernment to other peoples, who on hearing of all these laws will say, ‘Surely, that great nation is a wise and discerning people.’” Deuteronomy 4:6 (The Israel Bible™)

“There is currently a surge in the publication of books that convey Torah teachings to the non-Jewish world, and such literature is being published at an ever-increasing rate, for one good reason.

“There is clearly a massive appetite and yearning among the Nations to understand what the Jews are really about, and to hear from them and understand what the Torah has to say about God’s unfolding plan for the geula – the imminent redemption of the entire world.

“This remarkable phenomenon of the awakening of so many holy souls among the Nations to get closer to God and discover His Torah, is both mysterious and wonderful, and strongly suggests that these stirrings are directed from above and are signs of the arrival of the geula.” So says Nachum Shaw of Promised Land Publishers.

Shaw spoke to Breaking Israel News about his unique publishing house. “To help reveal and spread the wisdom of the Torah and its uplifting and enlightening message to the widest possible readership, both Jewish and non-Jewish, I formed a new publishing house called Promised Land. Promised Land just published five books by Rabbi Avraham Greenbaum, the world-renowned author of over 25 books on Jewish spiritual teachings.”

Shaw told Breaking Israel News that one of Rabbi Greenbaum’s new books, The House on the Mountain, contains, “Jewish spiritual teachings that are destined to be taught to all the inhabitants of the world. It explains all aspects of Judaism and the central role that the soon to be built Third Temple will have in bringing balance back to nature and our environment, and peace, happiness, spiritual fulfilment and goodness to the whole world, with the coming of Moshiach (Messiah).”

There’s also a fulfillment of a prophecy directed to the Jewish people in this trend of publishing Torah books expressly for non-Jewish readers. “If we look at Exodus 19:6, we are told that the Children of Israel will be to God, “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.”

but you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words that you shall speak to the children of Yisrael.” Exodus 19:6

“As the Jews’ role is to be priests to the Nations, it follows that spreading Torah literature to the Nations greatly helps the Jewish people to accomplish this role,” Shaw argued.

Connecting these two ideas – the publication of books containing Torah concepts intended for people from the Nations and Redemption – is echoed in the comments of Rabbi Lazer Brody. Rabbi Brody translated The Universal Garden of Emuna, written by Rabbi Shalom Arush. Emuna is the spiritual principle of unshakeable belief that God runs the world. The Universal Garden of Emuna was adapted from a similar book originally written for a Jewish audience.

Speaking to Breaking Israel News, Rabbi Brody invoked a prophetic sentence from the Jewish prayer Aleinu. “We say thrice daily in Aleinu, ‘And all of living flesh shall call Your Name.’ The closer we get to Moshiach, the more humanity will realize that emuna is the only path to peace and happiness. That’s what the world is hungry for.” The Universal Garden of Emuna was written to bring this redemptive message to non-Jews.

Yisrael Rosenberg, author of a forthcoming commentary on the Book of Isaiah which he wrote for Christian readers, meets many Christians who are interested in books like his. Rosenberg told Breaking Israel News, “My personal experience is that many Christians are hungry for knowledge about the Jewish roots of their faith. I wrote my upcoming book, ISAIAH: End Times and Messiah in Judaism ​in response to the interest that many Christians, both clergy and laypeople, have shown for these issues. On one level, I seek to meet the growing demand for the Jewish ‘take’ on faith-related topics.”

Rosenberg echoed Rabbi Brody’s emphasis on emuna when he continued, “On a deeper level, I am convinced that the simple, practical approach to emuna (faith in God) as presented by the 19th-century Hasidic teacher Rabbi Nachman of Breslov could serve as a source of universal teachings that might help non-Jews grow closer to Hashem (God).”

Both Rosenberg and Rabbi Tuly Weisz, director of Israel365 and the publisher of The Israel Bible and Breaking Israel News addressed themselves to what’s behind this trend.

Rosenberg credits the Internet with changing the relationship between Christians and traditional Torah teaching. “One of the key drivers is the Internet, which allows curious people to dig in and find basic information about Judaism, in a way that has never been available before.​ All of humanity is becoming more and more connected with every passing day,” he said.

Rabbi Weisz shared a longer historical perspective. “The big picture goes back 500 years to the Protestant Reformation and even a little bit before, to the invention of the printing press. That was a major transition, where all of a sudden, Christians started reading the Bible. Everyone had a Bible in their home.

“Christians are realizing that the Bible is a work that’s all about the Jewish people in the Land of Israel and it’s taken a long time for this all to crystalize. It’s clarifying and crystalizing in a significant way that there’s a plan for the Jewish people that’s spelled out in the Bible.

“The Bible describes the history of Israel in the past and the present-day situation of the Jewish people in the exile, as well as the future promise of the restoration and the ingathering of the exiles. It was always some kind of mythical, mystical idea that is obviously coming to fruition in front of our eyes, in front of their eyes.

“These are the big factors leading to this growing interest in the Jewish perspective, in the Hebrew Roots of Christianity and in the Torah,” he argued.

Rabbi Weisz continued, “To me what’s so exciting is the passage in Isaiah 2.

And the many peoples shall go and say: “Come, Let us go up to the Mount of Hashem, To the House of the God of Yaakov; That He may instruct us in His ways, And that we may walk in His paths.” For instruction shall come forth from Tzion, The word of Hashem from Yerushalayim. Isaiah 2:3

“That’s like our foundational scripture for Yeshiva for the Nations and The Israel Bible – this idea that in the end of days, the non-Jews are going to say, ‘Teach us the Torah, for from Zion shall come forth the Torah.’

“It’s so exciting to be a part of that. It’s so exciting to see that actually happen. The ingathering of the exiles we’ve seen. The rebirth of the Land we’ve seen. The last promise is this idea that the non-Jews are going to say, “Teach us the Torah.” And that’s particularly what drives me, what drives Yeshiva for the Nations and what drives The Israel Bible.”

Shaw ties it all together. “If we look at Isaiah, we see the prophet talking about the (future) Temple in Jerusalem.

I will bring them to My sacred mount And let them rejoice in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices Shall be welcome on My mizbayach; For My House shall be called A house of prayer for all peoples.” Isaiah 56:7

How will this be possible unless the Nations are first introduced to and know what is in God’s Torah? The wide distribution of Torah literature can help to facilitate this knowledge,” he clarified.

Prophecy in News – Kushner Says Punishing Palestinians Won’t Hurt Chance for Peace Deal

Prophecy in News - Kushner Says Punishing Palestinians Won’t Hurt Chance for Peace Deal

Three days after the Trump administration evicted the Palestine Liberation Organization from its offices in Washington, Jared Kushner defended the latest in a string of punitive actions against the Palestinians and insisted that none of them had diminished the chances of a peace accord between Israel and the Palestinians.

Speaking on Thursday, 25 years to the day after the Oslo peace accords were signed on the White House lawn not far from his West Wing office, Mr. Kushner said President Trump had actually improved the chances for peace by stripping away the “false realities” that surround Middle East peacemaking.

“There were too many false realities that were created — that people worship — that I think needed to be changed,” he said in an interview. “All we’re doing is dealing with things as we see them and not being scared out of doing the right thing. I think, as a result, you have a much higher chance of actually achieving a real peace.”

Mr. Kushner said he did not want to be too critical of the Oslo accords, which created the framework for peace negotiations over the last three decades. But he cast his own efforts as a radical break with the past, evincing little nostalgia for the historic images of Bill Clinton drawing together Yasir Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin in September 1993.

Prophecy in News – U.S. Air Force Seeks Largest Expansion Since Cold War

U.S. Air Force Seeks Largest Expansion Since Cold War

The increase reflects a shift in focus away from counterterrorism and toward possible conflict with China or Russia.

he U.S. Air Force has determined it will need a nearly 25 percent boost in combat squadrons in order to support a major war with another great power such as China or Russia, signaling the largest potential increase in air power for the United States since the end of the Cold War.

Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson said the service wants to grow to 386 operational squadrons by around 2025-2030, compared with the 312 it has today. The rise would support Defense Secretary James Mattis’s shift in focus from the fight against terrorism in the Middle East to potential conflicts with near-peer competitors.

Wilson laid out the new road map during a keynote address at the Air Force Association’s annual Air, Space & Cyber Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, on Monday. Foreign Policy obtained exclusive details about the makeup of the 74 additional combat squadrons.

Russia and China have spent the last several decades studying U.S. military strategy and investing in ways that would take away its advantage, according to Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein. The new force structure is designed to counter new defensive and offensive capabilities that Russia and China are developing, such as long-range aircraft and nuclear weapons, he said.

“This is about how do we stay out in front of them based on the best assessment that the Joint Staff and the intelligence [agencies have] put together on where we think our adversaries are headed,” Goldfein said.

Under the plan, the Air Force would add tens of thousands of airmen and a range of sophisticated aircraft and other capabilities that will likely cost U.S. taxpayers tens of billions of dollars over the next decade, if not more.

Officials declined to put a price tag on the increase but said it would include more bombers, refueling tankers, fighter jets, and drones, as well as airlift, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and special operations aircraft. In addition, the Air Force would boost the number of combat squadrons focused on space and cybersecurity. The overall increase could also include a new light attack fleet, which the Air Force believes provides a cheaper way to fight militants in the Middle East.

Increasing the number of squadrons by about 25 percent would require roughly 40,000 additional airmen, for a total force of about 717,000, Wilson said.

Todd Harrison, a budget expert with the Center for Strategic and International Studies, estimated that this increase in manpower would likely add $13 billion a year to operating costs. The Air Force currently spends about $53 billion per year on aircraft operations, training, and recruiting, he noted.

One source with knowledge of the discussions stressed that the Air Force may not be able to afford the full increase.

Prophecy in the News – Atlanta archbishop invites pro-LGBT priest James Martin to speak in archdiocese

pro-LGBT priest James Martin

A U.S. archbishop has invited Fr. James Martin, SJ — the most outspoken proponent of the normalization of homosexuality within the Catholic Church — to speak in his diocese.

“Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta has graciously invited me to his archdiocese to speak,” said the Jesuit priest in a tweet, “so I will be speaking at St. Thomas More Parish (the Jesuit parish) on Sat. Oct 20 and at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on the morning of Sun. Oct 21.”

“I will be speaking on the same topic as I did at the World Meeting of Families: ‘Showing Welcome and Respect in Our Parishes to LGBT People and their Families,’” noted Martin in a follow-up tweet.

Faithful Shepherds has listed Archbishop Gregory as not upholding Church teaching on homosexuality. News broke last month of Gregory’s appointment of a pro-gay priest who heads a gay-affirming parish to be diocesan spiritual director for victims of sexual abuse by clergy.

The parish of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the first Catholic church built in Atlanta, maintains a “Pride Outreach,” including running a booth at Atlanta’s gay pride week.

“The Shrine has always welcomed all of God’s children. During PRIDE week each year, we celebrate God’s diversity by maintaining a booth in the park,” the parish website states.

End Time Headlines – Middle East ON BRINK: Iran in furious Israel attack and insists UN ‘takes firm action’

End Time Headlines - Middle East ON BRINK Iran in furious Israel attack and insists UN takes firm action

Middle East ON BRINK: Iran in furious Israel attack and insists UN ‘takes firm action’

IRAN has demanded the United Nations (UN) condemns aggressive threats from Israel and insisted inspectors take a look at the nation’s nuclear programme.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at a secluded Israeli atomic reactor weeks ago to warn the nation’s enemies he had the means to wipe them out in an apparent reference to the country’s nuclear arsenal.

In a letter penned to the body’s security council by Iran ambassador Gholamali Khoshrou, he said: “The United Nations’ members should not turn a blind eye to these threats and must take firm actions to eliminate all Israeli nuclear weapons.”

He then demanded the UN security general forces Israel to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and bring its nuclear programme under supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Israel has neither confirmed or denied housing nuclear weapons and has dubbed suspicion of the country having them as “ambiguity” that arose over their bid to keep hostile neighbours in check.

Israel is trying to lobby world powers to follow the United States in exiting their 2015 deal with Iran that capped the Islamic Republic’s nuclear capabilities in return for lifting of sanctions.

Since its 1979 Islamic Revolution, Iran has preached Israel’s destruction, backing Lebanese militia Hezbollah and the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas.

Iran’s reinforcement of Damascus during Syria’s civil war is seen by Israel as a further deployment on their borders.

Iran’s crumbling relationship with the US has put the Middle East area in crisis since President Donald Trump came into power in 2016.

Crippling sanctions put Iran has seen the nation descend into financial turmoil.

Recently, the US targeted Iran’s oil exports over its nuclear weapons programme.

Mr Trump also claimed a victory over the nation after car manufacturing giant Volkswagen today announced they would halt production in Iran.

End Time Headlines -DEEP STATE Former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz Publishes Book Exposing The Secret Government In Washington

The White House, home of the United States President

DEEP STATE: Former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz Publishes Book Exposing The Secret Government In Washington

I spent 8 and a half years in Congress. I took about 8 and a half to 9 months to write it. It’s on sale tomorrow at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and all the other usual suspects. When I went to Congress I didn’t really know what the Deep State was or if it was real or not real, but I left knowing that it is very real. It’s something that is out in the open. It’s not some tinfoil person whose off in the corner with some weird dials trying to do things. It is a abrasion approach that many federal bureaucrats do to wait out administrations.

“The Deep State is real – I’ve seen it up close and it’s far worse than you can imagine” Congressman Jason Chaffetz

First of all, let me start by saying that I love America, always have and always will. Not only did my dad serve during WWII and Korea, my brother a United States Marine, I also had 5 uncles who all fought for the North during the Civil War. On top of all that, my dad’s family first arrived on these shores in 1732, 44 years before America would officially exist. I love our freedoms, our way of life, and the fact that we are the only country in world history, after Israel, whose nation was founded on the God of Abraham and the Bible.

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.” Patrick Henry, Ratifier of the US Constitution

But there exists within our perfect picture of a free and just society, behind the Norman Rockwell imagery and rolling hills, another America which has another government. This unseen body is not put in or removed from office by election, for they are always there. For the most part, this unelected government operates invisibly, silently. Until Donald Trump was elected, most people didn’t really care too much what happened in Washington. Elections came and went cycle after cycle, Red fighting Blue and Blue fighting Red, but never looking much deeper than that.

Then the unthinkable happened. A candidate finally appeared on the scene who was neither Red nor Blue, beholden to no one except himself, and against all odds he was elected as the 45th President of these United States. For the first time in recent memory, a person became our leader who was not part of the unseen government, the Deep State, and who would not do their bidding. How did this happen? God voted.

“I spent 8 and a half years in Congress. I took about 8 and a half to 9 months to write it. It’s on sale tomorrow at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and all the other usual suspects. When I went to Congress I didn’t really know what the Deep State was or if it was real or not real, but I left knowing that it is very real. It’s something that is out in the open. It’s not some tinfoil person whose off in the corner with some weird dials trying to do things. It is a abrasion approach that many federal bureaucrats do to wait out administrations.” Jason Chaffetz

Before we go any further, let’s clarify of few things first. This article is not promoting any conspiracy theory or the rabid fantasizing of fear merchants like Alex Jones. No, this article is drawing your attention to an explosive book written by former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz who before his retirement was a powerful force in the House. His book is not about conspiracy theory, his book is about what he learned about the secret, unelected government that operates in Washington, and he calls it the Deep State.

The Deep State, what other generations referred to as a secret society, has been operating in America perhaps from soon after its beginning, but certainly began to come to light during the early days of the 20th century. The history of the robber barons like Vanderbilt and Rockefeller controlling everything, that used to be taught in schools but sadly no longer is, showed us that rich and powerful men secretly seized power and never relinquished it. Whatever America was originally created to do was recreated by these men with their limitless funds and Orwellian ambitions.

One of the richest men of the early 20th century said this about our secret government:

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” Henry Ford

The reason that the 2016 presidential election was so upsetting for Hillary Clinton and her ilk was that it meant there would finally be a break in the chain of command of the Deep State, something that they were not prepared for. The Deep State had done all their homework, loaded Hillary with over a billion dollars with which to wage her campaign, put the entire main stream media and social media behind her, and yet she lost the Electoral College by 33%. How ironic is that for the Freemasons?

The book by Jason Chaffetz marks the moment when the Deep State was moved out of the realm of conspiracy theory and into a serious mainstream discussion of what is really happening in the halls of power in the esoteric world of the District of Columbia.

In closing, let me remind you of the last president we had who was not part of the Deep State, and who publicly stated that secret societies would have no part in his administration. He promised the American people that he would expose the unseen government and put them on notice. Two years later, in Dallas, the Deep State would give Kennedy their response to his speech.

“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.” John F Kennedy, from his 1961 ‘Secret Societies’ speech

The Kennedy Assassination: What Really Happened

Based on Dr. Kroth’s new book of the same title, he explains how President Trump’s dramatic disclosure of secret JFK files in 2017-18 changes our understanding of virtually everything. These documents are added to what we learned from the CIA’s own Howard Hunt who made a deathbed confession in 2007 which implicated LBJ. Hunt’s confession and Trump’s JFK secret releases are absolutely revelatory.

Pray for his salvation, that he will come to saving knowledge of the God who has placed him where he is. And pray for America that we may one day break free from the Deep State and its control over our lives.

End Time Headlines – Russian Military Plane With 14 Soldiers On Board Shot Down In Syria As Israel Takes Out Chemical Weapons Facility

End Time Headlines - Russian Military Plane With 14 Soldiers On Board Shot Down In Syria As Israel Takes Out Chemical Weapons Facility

Russian state news TASS said the IL-20 disappeared over the Mediterranean on Monday evening at the same time as the suspected strike. A Syrian facility linked to the country’s chemical weapons program was bombed on Monday night, triggering Syrian air defenses, state media reported.

14 Russian servicemen aboard plane which went missing over Mediterranean; Syria claims 2 killed after Israel fires missiles from Lebanese airspace toward chemical weapons-linked facility in Latakia

The Middle East was rocked tonight as a Russian military jet with 14 soldiers onboard was shot down as Israel launched airstrikes from Lebanese airspace on a chemical weapons depot in the Syrian city of Latakia. Israel is saying the Russian jet was shot down accidentally by Syrian forces, while others are saying that it was American Tomahawk missiles that were behind the strike.

Russia is demanding answers, Israel is refusing to comment, and America says the Russian jet was shot down by Syria. There will be very little sleep in the Middle East tonight.

FROM TIMES OF ISRAEL: A Russian military plane with 14 servicemen aboard was accidentally shot down by Syrian air defenses as they tried to repel an alleged Israeli strike on Monday, a US official told CNN. The official added that the plane was downed by a Russian-made missile system which was sold to Syria.

Russian state news TASS said the IL-20 disappeared over the Mediterranean on Monday evening at the same time as the suspected strike.  A Syrian facility linked to the country’s chemical weapons program was bombed on Monday night, triggering Syrian air defenses, state media reported.

The state-run Al-Ikhbariya TV reported loud explosions in the coastal Latakia province, saying they were likely from Israeli strikes targeting a state company for technical industries.

The Syrian army said that Israel fired missiles from Lebanese airspace, adding that two people were killed in the attack and the facility was severely damaged, Hadashot reported early Tuesday. A spokesperson for the US Department of Defense denied that the American military was behind the attack, telling the Voice of America news outlet, “I can unequivocally say this is not us.”

US officials have reported the Syrian army shot down the Russian plane while trying to thwart an alleged Israeli airstrike. Syrian state media said air defences intercepted and downed missiles targeting areas in the city of Latakia. Military sources reported missiles came from the direction of the sea in an hour-long attack.

End Time Headlines - Report - Syria mistakenly downs Russian plane while repelling Israeli strike

Russia implies France or Israel responsible for missing aircraft; Syria claims 2 killed after Israel fires missiles from Lebanese airspace toward chemical weapons-linked facility.

A Russian military plane with 14 servicemen aboard was accidentally shot down by Syrian air defenses as they tried to repel an alleged Israeli strike on Monday, a US official told CNN.

The official added that the plane was downed by a Russian-made missile system which Moscow sold to its Syrian ally.
Russian state news TASS said the IL-20 disappeared over the Mediterranean on Monday evening was as it returning to Latakia province at the same time as the suspected strike by Israel, and that concurrently France was also firing rockets nearby.
“Connection has been lost with the crew of a Russian Il-20 plane over the Mediterranean Sea 35 kilometers from the Syrian coast as it was returning to the Hmeimim airbase,” the Russian defense ministry said, adding that communications were lost at the time of the suspected Israeli attack.

“Connection has been lost with the crew of a Russian Il-20 plane over the Mediterranean Sea 35 kilometers from the Syrian coast as it was returning to the Hmeimim airbase,” the Russian defense ministry said, adding that communications were lost at the time of the suspected Israeli attack.

“At the same time Russian air control radar systems detected rocket launches from the French frigate Auvergne which was located in that region,” Russia’s TASS news agency quoted the defense ministry as saying, according to Reuters.

A rescue operation has been launched.

Israel does not regularly comment on alleged strikes in Syria.

An Israeli military spokeswoman, when asked about both the reported Israeli strike and the Russian plane, said: “We don’t comment on foreign reports.”

Syrian state media earlier reported that a Syrian facility linked to the country’s chemical weapons program was bombed on Monday night, triggering Syrian air defenses.

The state-run Al-Ikhbariya TV reported loud explosions in the coastal Latakia province, saying they were likely from Israeli strikes targeting a state company for technical industries.

Explosions continued for nearly a half hour, said state-run Al-Ikhbariya TV, which aired footage showing streaks of white light flashing across the sky. An unidentified military official was quoted as saying Syrian air defenses intercepted some missiles heading for the provincial capital of Latakia from the sea.

Al-Ikhbariya said 10 people were injured and two required hospitalization.

A Pentagon spokesman said the United States was not involved and declined to provide further details.

“The missiles were not fired by the US military and we have nothing further at this time,” he said.

A French army spokesman also denied any involvement.

Syrian military sources told SANA that the attack came from the direction of the sea and targeted an Organization for Technological Industries center in Latakia.

The sources also claimed the country’s air defenses shot down a number of incoming missiles. The Syrian army has regularly been accused of exaggerating its interception capabilities.

The attack caused a large explosion and knocked out power to the surrounding area, according to local media.

The Organization for Technological Industries is a subsidiary of the Syrian Ministry of Defense and has been tied to the developments of both missiles and chemical weapons.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported the explosions, saying the target appeared to be an ammunition depot, part of the compound of the organization. The war monitoring group said it was not clear if the depot was for Iranian or Syrian forces.

The strikes followed a similar attack on Damascus International Airport late Saturday, which Syrian state media also blamed on Israel. A military official quoted then on state media said Syrian air defenses intercepted some missiles coming from the sea.

Other attacks were reported on September 4 that targeted sites in the coastal Tartus area and in Hama province. The Observatory said at the time that the attacks were believed aimed at Iranian military posts.

Israel is alleged to have been behind a series of airstrikes mainly targeting Iranian and Hezbollah forces in Syria that have joined the country’s war fighting alongside the government. Israel rarely acknowledges attacks inside Syria, but has said it will use military action to prevent weapons transfers to its enemies.

Earlier this month, an Israeli military official said the Jewish state has struck over 200 Iranian targets in Syria over the past 18 months.

End Time Headlines – John Hagee: Old Testament Prophecies ‘Like Reading the Daily Headlines’

End-Time-Headlines-John-Hagee-Old-Testament-Prophecies-Like-Reading-the-Daily-Headlines

Pastor John Hagee of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas giving the closing prayer at the ceremony celebrating the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

Reading the Old Testament prophets Daniel and Ezekiel is “like reading the daily headlines,” Pastor John Hagee said in a Christian Post interview about his new book, Earth’s Last Empire: The Final Game of Thrones.

Hagee has long taught that the Bible offers prophetic writings of what’s seen in today’s social and political landscape. In Earth’s Last Empire, released Sunday, the San Antonio-based senior pastor of Cornerstone Church says God’s hand is imprinted all over human history. He also claims to show how prophesy is currently being fulfilled today, along with what that all means for the future of the world.

Below is an edited transcript between CP and the televangelist where he shares more information about his new book and why people in this generation should study the Bible and stay informed about the times we are living in.

Hagee: The title reflects the Bible’s teachings of the battle between good and evil and God’s eternal kingdom.

CP: Following the Trump administration’s decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, where do you think we are in the timeline of biblical prophecy?

Hagee: God has sole control of His time clock. I do not believe the moving of the U.S. Embassy was necessarily part of a prophetic plan. I do believe that President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem put America on the right side of history. Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital since King David established it over 3,000 years ago. The president’s decision recognized that fact.

CP: You have said this generation is the most uninformed generation concerning God’s plan for the future. Why do you think that is?

Hagee: Broadly speaking, I believe that many in this millennial generation are uniformed on most historical, political and Biblical issues. They have surrendered their right to think to a social media misinformation movement that dictates the “self-perceived reality of the moment.” With this progression comes the loss of Biblical literacy, which impacts all aspects of God’s message to the world. It is the charge of the church to teach God’s infallible Word to the next generation. Man has always been fascinated with the future. When you consider that nearly one fourth of the Bible was prophetic at the time it was written it is vitally important that Christians are familiar with its teachings.

CP: You titled a section of your book The Final Game of Thrones. Do you think we are approaching the final empire?

Hagee: First, it is futile to make predictions, but the final empire will appear after the 1,000 years of perfect peace produced by the coming Messiah. Second, the world will never end but will be recreated to be like the Garden of Eden—this, in fact, will be the final empire.

CP: In your studies, have you found Bible scriptures that specifically relate to today’s turbulent political landscape?

Hagee: A portion of my book, Earth’s Last Empire, reflects the revelation God gave to the prophets Daniel and Ezekiel of forthcoming events. Reading these prophecies is like reading the daily headlines.

My book details what Bible prophecy teaches, my goal is to illuminate today’s headlines in the context of scripture.

END TIME NEWS – Japan earthquake: Sapporo ROCKED by 6.7 earthquake – landslide traps people in homes

Japan Earthqake 2018

A POWERFUL earthquake has rocked the city of Sapporo in northern Japan just hours after large parts of the south of the country were battered by the biggest typhoon to hit in 25 years.

The Magnitude 6.7 quake struck 70 miles south of Sapporo on the island of Hokkaido, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).

The tremor triggered a landslide which covered homes in the rural town of Atsumi trapping residents inside.

People in Sapporo were woken up by strong shaking shortly after 7pm BST (3am Thursday local time) as the earth moved for around 20 seconds.

Japanese TV showed damaged buildings and quoted police as saying some people had been trapped in collapsed structures.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said officials have set up a command center to coordinate rescue efforts.

At least 10 people have been taken to hospital after being injured in the quake.

Reports of power outages in Japan’s northernmost prefecture have been widely shared on social media.

One Twitter user said: “Just woke up to a pretty damn big earthquake in Sapporo. I’ve been through quite a few before and I’m shaking like a leaf right now. In fact, we’re getting an aftershock right now…”

The tremor struck at an approximate depth of 20 miles, USGS data said.

No tsunami warning has been issued following the earthquake, which was initially reported as a Magnitude 7.0.

The epicenter was just 16 miles from the city of Chitose, home to Hokkaido’s main airport.

A Twitter user named Licia said: “My friends. We just had a major #earthquake here in Japan. #Hokkaido. #Sapporo. We are in the dark, but otherwise fine. Omg! It was humongous. No information on magnitude. Internet still works for now.”

USGS said the earthquake is not expected to generate a tsunami based on its intensity, depth and historic tsunami records.

Sapporo is the capital of Hokkaido prefecture with a population of nearly two million people.

Kenji Yamamoto, an official in Noborito, told public broadcaster NHK there were no reports of injuries or death in that town.

Japan sits in the “Ring of Fire” arc of volcanoes and oceanic trenches that partly encircles the Pacific Basin.

The island nation accounts for around 20 percent of the world’s earthquakes of Magnitude 6 or greater.

The earthquake comes just hours after prefectures in the south of Japan were battered by Typhoon Jebi.

At least 11 people were killed and more than 450 injured in the powerful storm caused widespread damage.

The cities of Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto which make up the Kansai region were some of the worst hit with violent winds of 135mph recorded.

Kansai International Airport, a major travel hub for the south of Japan, remains closed and could be shut for as long as a week.

END TIME NEWS-What Other Biblical Prophecies Point to the End Times and Christ’s Second Coming?

What Other Biblical Prophecies Point to the End Times and Christs Second Coming

As the world watched, the United States officially moved its embassy to Jerusalem Monday and many believe the event was the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. But according to Bible scholars that is not the only world event that points to the end times and Jesus’ second coming.

“Jerusalem is central in the theology of the Old Testament as it was in the New Testament. It is the place that God said he has chosen to pour forth his blessing. He also said that indeed the descendants of David will rule on the throne of Israel in Jerusalem forever,” Dr. Corné Bekker, the dean of the School of Divinity at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va. told CBN News. “Evangelical Christians also believe that it is the place where the Messiah will return one day and rule from.”

“It is amazing to see,” CBN News Jerusalem Bureau Chief remarked on CBN News’ Facebook program, The Prayer Link.

“Zechariah said the nations of the world would come and focus their attention, here, on Jerusalem,” he said. “And I think in such a dramatic way, we’re seeing that because of the U.S. embassy being moved here.”

Accounts in both Luke 21 and Matthew 24, parallel Christ’s response to Luke when asked: “Teacher, . . . when will these things be? And what sign will there be when these things are about to take place?” (Luke 21:7).

In Luke 21:20, Jesus said upon his return Jerusalem would be the center of political and military unrest.

“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near…For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled,” the scripture reads.

Mitchell said the constant unrest between Palestinians and Israelis could be the start of the fulfillment of biblical prophecy.

“We have seen, In the last several weeks, especially on the Gaza border..these demonstrations trying to break through Israel’s border and that, unfortunately, has been tragic for many of the Palestinians,” he continued. “Hamas does not want to have a two-state solution, but a one-state solution that would replace the Jewish state of Israel.”

“True peace will come when the Prince of Peace comes,” Mitchell said. “In the shorter term, it’s going to be very difficult to see that true peace is going to come between Palestinians and Israelis.”

However, other world events are pointing to end times biblical prophesy.

According to the Beyond Today website, there is an end time prophecy about the “kings” of two regions meeting in Daniel 11. This could loosely be interpreted to be the historic summit meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12.

“We will both try to make it a very special moment for world peace,” tweeted President Trump last week.

For many evangelicals, Jerusalem is about prophecy, not politics

For many evangelicals, Jerusalem is about prophecy, not politics

(CNN)As I watched Donald Trump announce that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move our embassy to that city, I could only think of one thing: my high school youth group Bible study.
Diana Butler Bass
Diana Butler Bass
I know that sounds odd. Especially coming from a liberal Episcopalian like me. But there you have it. The President makes a world-important declaration about global politics, and an absurdly apocalyptic thought arises, “Jerusalem? The Last Days must be at hand!”

When I was a teenager in the 1970s, I attended a “Bible church,” a nondenominational congregation that prided itself on a singular devotion to scripture. We read the Bible all the time: in personal Bible study and evening Bible classes. We listened to hourlong Sunday morning sermons. For us, the Bible was not just a guide to piety. It also revealed God’s plan for history. Through it, we learned how God had worked in the past and what God would do in the future.
Central to that plan was Jerusalem, the city of peace, and the dwelling place of God. It was special to the Jews because it was the home of Abraham and David. It was special to us because it was where Jesus had died and risen. We believed that ultimately, Christ would return to Jerusalem to rule as its king. We longed for this outcome — and we prayed that human history would help bring about this biblical conclusion.
Jerusalem was our prophetic bellwether. God’s plan hung on its fate. Whenever Israel gained more political territory, whenever Israel extended its boundaries, it was God’s will, the end-times unfolding on the evening news. Jerusalem, as the spiritual heart of Israel, mattered. Jerusalem was God’s holy city, of the ancient past, in its conflicted present, and for the biblical future.
For many conservative evangelicals, Jerusalem is not about politics. It is not about peace plans or Palestinians or two-state solutions. It is about prophecy. About the Bible. And, most certainly, it is about the end-times.
Why Jerusalem's holy sites are so significant

Why Jerusalem’s holy sites are so significant 01:59
When I was young, our pastor insisted that Jerusalem had an important role to play in these end-times events. When the Jews rejected Jesus as the messiah, he explained, God chose the church to accomplish his mission. Soon this “church age” would end with the rapture of true believers.
But God still loved the Jews, he told us, and wanted to redeem them. Thus, absent the church, the Jews would experience a great religious rebirth and rebuild their temple in Jerusalem. This would spark a series of cataclysmic events that would culminate in the Battle of Armageddon, the last war of humanity. But it would also cause the Jews to finally accept Jesus as their savior. After all this occurred, Jesus would return in glory and God’s kingdom — a thousand-year reign of peace. And it would begin in Jerusalem.
This theology — a literal belief that all these things must happen before Jesus will return to reign on Earth — is called “dispensational pre-millennialism” and it is not the quirky opinion of some isolated church. Although the majority of Christians do not share these views, versions of dispensational pre-millennialism dominate American evangelicalism.
It originated as a small movement in the 1840s, but by the 1970s, millions of evangelical and fundamentalist churchgoers had embraced some form of it. Dispensationalism was popularized in a best-selling book called “The Late, Great Planet Earth” by Hal Lindsey; and later, in the 1990s, it reached an even larger audience through the “Left Behind” novels by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. The theology spread via Bible camps and colleges, through theological seminaries and revival meetings, in films and videos, by Sunday school materials, and in daily devotional guides — all teaching that the end of the world was near, and that Jerusalem was the physical place where this apocalyptic drama would unfold.
Colbert: Trump can't locate Jerusalem on map

Colbert: Trump can’t locate Jerusalem on map 01:08
If you know evangelicals, chances are very good that you know this theology, whether you believe it or not. You cannot avoid it. And if you hear the President of the United States say something about Jerusalem, you take notice. Especially when that President won 81% of the white evangelical vote.
When the President issued his order, I was not the only person hearing echoes of dispensationalism. Robert Jeffress, one of Trump’s evangelical advisers, declared: “Jerusalem has been the object of the affection of both Jews and Christians down through history and the touchstone of prophecy.”
Other evangelical pastors and teachers also praised the action as “biblical” and likened it to a “fulfilled prophecy.”
While that may sound benign (or perhaps nutty) to the theologically uninitiated, they are referring to the “prophecy” of the conversion of the Jews, the second coming of Jesus, the final judgment, and the end of the world — the events referred to as the biblical apocalypse.
I doubt that President Trump could explain dispensational pre-millennialism. I doubt he knows the term. But his evangelical supporters know it. Some of his advisers are probably whispering these prophecies in his ears. Trump might not really care how they interpret the Bible, but he cares that white evangelicals continue to stand with him. Moving the embassy to Jerusalem is one way to affirm his commitment to these evangelicals — reminding them that he, Donald J. Trump, is pressing biblical history forward to its conclusion and that he is God’s man in the unfolding of these last days.

Follow CNN

I may not believe it — anymore, at least. You may not believe it. Donald Trump might not even truly believe it. But millions do. That matters. Not only for American politics, of course. For the peace of Jerusalem. And for peace for the rest of us as well.

END TIME NEWS-Trump draws RED LINE on Syria in threat to Putin and Assad – ‘Don’t make GRAVE mistake!’

Donald-Trump-trump-news-trump-syria-trump-twitter-trump-tweet-syria-news-trump-assad-trump-russia-trump-iran-1012590

DONALD TRUMP has warned Syria’s President Assad and his allies Iran and Russia not to launch a “reckless attack” to the Idlib province, as the assault would result in hundreds of thousands of people killed.

The Syrian province of Idlib and surrounding areas are the last major enclave held by rebels opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a close Iranian and Russian ally.

Assad is reportedly preparing a phased offensive to regain the province.

The US President wrote on Twitter: “President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province.

“The Russians and Iranians would be making a grave humanitarian mistake to take part in this potential human tragedy.

“Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed.

“Don’t let that happen!”

The message is being seen as a red line, with suggestions the President may retaliate to any attack on the province.

Trump’s tweet comes a few days after Russia declared part of the Mediterranean would be “dangerous” while they hold a massive naval exercise.

Russian sources have claimed the military drills are needed ahead of the final assault on Syria’s rebels in Idlib.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: “This hotbed of terrorists in Idlib does really not bode anything good if such inaction continues.

“The situation in Syria has a significant potential to become more complicated and the situation around Idlib leaves a lot to be desired.”

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem said last week: “We will go all the way in Idlib.”

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov denied the upcoming naval drills were in relation to the situation in Syria’s Idlib and had been planned in advance.

But the exercise appeared aimed as a warning to the West and UN forces against hitting Syrian government positions with tactical strikes.

In April, the US, UK and France launched over 100 missiles which they say targeted Syrian chemical weapons facilities in retaliation to a chemical weapons attack in Damascus.

Shocking footage of the chemical attack showed the devastation caused by sarin gas smoke which killed 80 civilians and drew international condemnation.

Assad’s government immediately denied its involvement in a letter to the UN “asserting that Syria has not and will not use toxic gases against its people because it does not have them in the first place”.

End Time News-Typhoon “Jebi” – The strongest typhoon to make landfall in mainland Japan since 1993 leaves 1.6 million without power, 9 dead and 300 injured

Typhoon Jebi The strongest typhoon to make landfall in mainland Japan since 1993 leaves 1.6 million without power 9 dead and 300 injured

Typhoon “Jebi” slammed into western Japan on September 4, 2018, killing at least 9 people and injuring more than 300. This is the fourth typhoon to strike Japan this year and the first categorized as ‘very strong’ to make landfall in mainland Japan in 25 years.

Jebi made its first landfall in the southern part of Tokushima Prefecture around 03:00 UTC (12:00 JST), September 4 with sustained winds of over 160 km/h (100 mph), making it the strongest typhoon to hit mainland Japan since Typhoon “Nancy” in 1993. The second landfall took place in Hyogo Prefecture, just east of Kobe, around 05:00 UTC (14:00 JST).

The typhoon left a trail of destruction, killed at least 9 people and injured more than 300 others, as of 18:00 UTC, September 4.

1.61 million customers in Fukui, Shiga, Kyoto, Osaka, Hyogo, Nara and Wakayama prefectures were left without power, in addition to 95 000 in Shikoku region, the Japan Times reports. Osaka reported wind gusts over 200 km/h (125 mph), the strongest to hit the city since 1961.

More than 700 local and international flights across western and central Japan were canceled, affecting nearly 60 000 people. Railway operators also halted some services, including on the Tokaido Shinkansen and Sanyo Shinkansen lines.

A number of trucks were tipped over by the wind on the Meishin Expressway in Shiga Prefecture, causing road closure. Another truck was nearly blown off a bridge connecting Shikoku island and the main island of Honshu, the Kyodo reports.

In Nishinomiya, a Hyogo Prefecture city near Kobe, more than 100 cars caught fire after waves inundated a yard for a car auctioneer, according to the local fire department.

Strong winds swept away a tanker berthed in Osaka Bay, slamming it into the sole bridge that connects the Kansai International Airport to the mainland and taking a large chunk out of the bridge. There were 11 crew members on board, but none were injured. The event left about 5 000 people stranded at the airport, one of the country’s main travel hubs. Airport officials said they will inspect the bridge on Wednesday morning and if no problems are found, transport the passengers by bus. 

The airport was closed before the incident due to heavy flooding and is not expected to reopen at least until Wednesday evening. Weather station installed on the airport registered gusts of up to 209 km/h (129.8 mph). 

Up to 500 mm (19.68 inches) of rain was forecast to fall in central Japan and up to 400 mm (15.7 inches) in the country’s west in the 24-hour period ending 06:00 JST, September 5.

According to weather officials, Jebi became the first typhoon categorized “very strong” by JMA to make landfall on Japan’s main islands since 1993 when a powerful Typhoon “Nancy” left 48 people dead or missing.

End Time News – Israel confirms 200 strikes in Syria in 18 months

wallpaper_world_in_conflict_soviet_assault_03_2560x1600

Jerusalem (AFP) – An Israeli military official said Tuesday the army had carried out some 200 strikes in Syria over the past 18 months against mainly Iranian targets, a rare confirmation of such action.

A total of 202 strikes were carried out in neighbouring Syria, the official said, all of which involved “military targets, most of them belonging to the (Iranian) Revolutionary Guards.”

Around 800 missiles and bombs were used in the strikes, said the official who spoke on condition of anonymity to confirm the details first reported in various Israeli media.

Israel has pledged to prevent its main enemy Iran from entrenching itself militarily in Syria, where Tehran is backing President Bashar al-Assad in the ongoing civil war.

A series of strikes that have killed Iranians in Syria have been attributed to Israel in recent months, but the Israeli military rarely confirms them.

Israel has previously acknowledged carrying out dozens of strikes in Syria against what it describes as advanced arms deliveries to Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Shiite group.

Hezbollah, based in Lebanon, is another of Israel’s enemies which is backing Assad in the Syrian conflict.

The rare confirmation of strikes comes after Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman signalled his country could hit Iranian targets in Iraq if they threatened Israel.

“We will face any Iranian threat, no matter where it comes from,” Lieberman said Monday.

The defence minister was speaking following reports that Iran had provided ballistic missiles to allied Shiite militias in Iraq in recent months.

“Our freedom of action is total,” Lieberman added.

The Israeli military official did not comment directly on those reports on Tuesday, but said the army was aware of missile transfers from Iran to Iraq and then on to Syria.

Breaking Prophetic News – More People Hungry for Prophetic as End-Times Signs Continue to Come to Pass

It seems like every time we turn on the news, we hear about global disasters, terrorism and political unrest. The frequency of these events seems to be increasing at an unprecedented rate, which has led to a greater interest in the gift of prophecy.

Unfortunately, even some religious leaders are creating confusion by predicting the date of the end of the world. Never before have we needed to understand what the true gift of prophecy is and what it is not.

In Matthew 24, Jesus clearly states that no one can predict the hour or the day of His return and the end of the age. Only the Father knows the time. Therefore, anyone who says he knows the exact date of the end of the age is speaking contrary to God’s Word.

Although speaking about events in the future is related to the gift of prophecy, Christians must make sure that what they believe about prophecy lines up with God’s Word. The word “prophecy” is composed of two words that mean “forth” and “telling.” “Forth-telling” is very different from foretelling or predicting the future.

Any Christian can speak forth what he knows to be true about the past, present or future when his foundation for truth is the Word of God—God’s revelation of Himself. God gave authority and inspiration through the Holy Spirit to a group of prophets and apostles to record His Truth in the Bible, God’s Holy Word. Then He closed the book. No one can add to or take away from what God has included in His Word. The source of prophecy today is the Bible. Anyone who speaks anything that is inconsistent with the truth expressed in His Word is not speaking for God.

Prayer: God, thank You for giving us Your Word as our guide. Help me know Your Word intimately so that I will know when someone is speaking inconsistently with what You’ve revealed in Scripture. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

“But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort” (1 Cor. 14:3, ESV).

GOD’S WRATH: 69 Major Earthquakes Hit Pacific ‘Ring of Fire’ – Is Something Major About to Happen?

'Big One' talk swirls as 69 massive earthquakes hit the Pacific's Ring of Fire in 48 hours . Gods Wrath

Nearly 70 earthquakes hit the Pacific “Ring of Fire” over a 48-hour period. It has prompted fears that the so-called “big one” could shortly hit California. Scientists have warned that a large earthquake in this region could set off a domino effect of other subsequent quakes.

A large swath of earthquakes hit the Pacific’s so-called Ring of Fire earlier this week, prompting some to wonder if it is a precursor to the oft-discussed massive earthquake, colloquially known as “the Big One.”

Sixty-nine earthquakes, including 16 tremors registering 4.5 or above on the Richter scale, recently hit the area, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), which recorded the events but did not issue a warning.

Several of the quakes registered significant impacts, including one that hit 5.0 and shook the area on Tuesday morning. Fiji appeared to be the most impacted, as five tremors above a 4.5 magnitude hit the small island.

‘BIG ONE’ COMING? EARTHQUAKES OFF THE WEST COAST COULD TRIGGER A GLOBAL EVENT

A string of recent earthquakes off the West Coast of the U.S., ranging from 2.8 to 5.6 on the Richter scale, could help trigger the earthquake colloquially known as “the Big One.”

The map provided by the U.S. Geological Survey highlights 11 recent earthquakes, all occurring on the seabed of the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate, approximately 6 miles below the surface. The plate, which is described as “small” by the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network (PNSN), is fairly active, moving east-northeast at approximately 1.6 inches per year.

To date, the USGS has not issued any warnings over this spate of earthquakes, given the fairly common nature of the caliber of quakes, Don Blakeman, a geophysicist at the National Earthquake Information Center told the Daily Mail.

Part of the concern surrounding the plate is that it is not a smooth motion, but rather a motion described as “sticky,” causing strain to build up “until the fault breaks and a few meters of Juan De Fuca slips under North America in a big earthquake.”

PNSN noted that it would take a lot of slip (approximately 10s of meters) over a very large area to generate a M9 (magnitude of 9.0) level earthquake that could hit the region, but
noted that it does occur approximately every 550 years on average.

The cause for concern is what happens when the Juan de Fuca plate eventually submerges under the much larger Pacific plate. For approximately 330 years, the plate has continuously been pushed down, an activity that will eventually lead it to be pushed under the North America plate, causing the region to sink six feet on the minimum and may result in one of the largest earthquakes in human history.

If the entire 650-mile long Cascadia Subduction Zone (which includes the Juan de Fuca plate) were to experience a full rupture, it could not only trigger a 9.0 earthquake, but a tsunami as well.

The Juan De Fuca plate stretches from Northern California to British Columbia and the Cascadia Subduction Zone stretches from N. Vancouver Island to Cape Mendicino, California.

Recent studies have highlighted how vulnerable we are to the proverbial “Big One.” 

Last month, one study detailed that there is a 15- to 20-mile-long stretch of the San Andreas fault ‒ called the Durmid ladder structure ‒ that could result in an earthquake with a magnitude of 7 or greater.

“This newly identified Durmid ladder structure is a voluminous, right-reverse fault zone that broadens across Durmid Hill around rotating domains of regularly spaced, left- and right-lateral cross faults,” a research article on the study reads.

The research put the odds at 75 percent that it would occur in both northern and southern California sometime over the next 30 years.

The “Big One” has been warned about several times before, with the USGS writing extensively on the topic, including how to use past earthquakes to better predict the future.

Luckily, the earthquakes did not reach the western coast of the U.S., which partially sits on the Cascadia subduction zone, a fault that stretches from mid-Vancouver Island to Northern California. The recent tremors have sparked concern that “the Big One” could be near, according to The Daily Mail, but the USGS has made no mention of this. 

Of the 69 earthquakes, 53 hit the area on Sunday, followed by the 16 subsequent tremors, impacting Indonesia, Bolivia, Japan and the aforementioned Fiji.

“The Big One”

“The Big One” is often described as an earthquake with a magnitude 8 or above, causing massive destruction to California, which some have said is overdue for an earthquake of this magnitude. California sits on the San Andreas fault, a 750-mile fault that has been responsible for some of the state’s most devastating earthquakes. 

The last earthquake that came close to a 8.0 magnitude in California was the great earthquake of 1906, which hit a magnitude of 7.9 and shook San Francisco to the ground, destroying 80 percent of the city and resulted in 3,000 deaths.

A massive earthquake registering 8.2 was registered on Sunday, hitting 174 miles north-northeast of Ndoi Island, Fiji, according to the the USGS. Luckily, the massive quake did not cause any significant damage, hitting at a depth of 347.7 miles, too deep to cause a tsunami.

“We are monitoring the situation and some places felt it, but it was a very deep earthquake,” Director Apete Soro told Reuters in an interview.

The Ring of Fire

The Ring of Fire is a 25,000 mile horseshoe-shaped ring, accounting for approximately 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes, according to the USGS.

The region also contains 452 volcanoes, more than 75 percent of the world’s active and dormant volcanoes.

Though the USGS did not issue a warning, the recent spat of earthquakes in the Ring of Fire could eventually cause some problems for the western part of the U.S. and other close regions. 

Speaking with Vox in February, University of California Santa Cruz professor Emily Brodsky said “earthquakes and volcanoes can interact,” before adding it’s unclear how much the string of earthquakes we’ve seen in recent months are connected. Brodsky also said that having quakes and volcanic eruptions at the same time in an active area is not unusual.

In late July, a string of recent earthquakes off the West Coast of the U.S., ranging from 2.8 to 5.6 on the Richter scale, also raised questions of whether the “Big One” could be near.

End Time Ministries. Prophecy NEWS JERUSALEM ISRAEL – Discovery of Biblical ‘Nephilim’ Remains Opens Questions Over Giants’ Roles in End of Days

'Nephilim' Remains Opens Questions Over Giants'

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.” Genesis 6:1-4 (The Israel Bible™)

Archaeologists have discovered a collection of 5,000-year old graves in China that contain remarkably tall skeletons, a description strongly reminiscent of the Biblical Nephilim who are believed to also play a significant role in the Final Battle on Mount Zion at the End of Days.

Throughout Eastern China in the Jiaojia village, archaeologists have been excavating the ruins of houses, graves, and sacrificial pits, unearthing more than 200 graves. The evidence of their discovery leads the experts to believe that the males in the village averaged a height of six feet, three inches.

That would be considered tall even by today’s standards when the average Chinese male stands at five feet, six inches. But considering the rapid growth of human height since this period, the inhabitants of Jiaojia 5,000 years ago would have been absolutely colossal by comparison

The skeletons found in China are consistent with the giants found in the Biblical narrative who were remarkably tall but still able to breed with human women. This is precisely the role Nephilim played in the beginning of the Bible preceding the story of the flood in the time of Noah. The text implies an unnatural sexual relationship between the Nephilim and human women.

The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown. Genesis 6:4

According to the text, Nephilim survived the flood and later reappeared in the Land of Israel. When the spies were sent to scout out the land, they were met by Nephilim who were so large that they deeply intimidated the Children of Israel.

And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who come of the Nephilim; and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.’ Numbers 13:33

In addition to the Biblical references to this giant race of men, they figure prominently in later Jewish traditions. Rabbi Yosef Berger, rabbi of the Tomb of King David on Mount Zion, explained that the Nephilim are not human though their history and their fate are intertwined with those of men.

“The Nephilim were angels that God was forced to send to Earth as a punishment, “Rabbi Berger explained. “Some of them mixed with men, and those are the ones we read about in the Bible.”

Rabbi Berger related a teaching from Rabbi Elijah ben Solomon Zalman, the preeminent Lithuanian Torah scholar from the 18th century known as the Vilna Gaon. The Vilna Gaon connected Nephilim with the final days of the Messiah.

“The Gaon of Vilna wrote about another group of Nephilim who didn’t mingle with man. They settled beyond the Sambatyon River and are hidden from us,” Rabbi Berger said. According to rabbinic literature, the Sambation is the mythical river beyond which the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel were exiled by the Assyrian king Shalmaneser.

“They observe the commandments and are very holy, but it is written that they are eight feet tall, Rabbi Berger said. “They are truly formidable to behold. They will remain hidden until the final battle for Mount Zion, at which time they will come to help Israel in the battle.”

For those searching for archaeological proof that the Biblical Nephilim could have existed, the findings in China may serve as a starting point. The findings are truly ancient, dating from the late neolithic area, which ended between 3000-2000 BCE. If the skeletons were from an particularly tall race of people, it is reasonable to believe that similar breeds existed in other parts of the world.

Archaeologists in China also found that the taller skeletons were contained in larger tombs, indicating a correlation between height and social status. Scientists conjectured that wealthier people had access to better food, which would account for their greater height.

Bible Prophecy – Water Flowing From Temple Mount: A Messianic Precursor?

A Jerusalem resident familiar with the Kotel was surprised to find water flowing from the stones in a decidedly pre-Messianic manner. Though the source was mundane, it is cause for retrospection into what the signs preceding Messiah will look like when they actually do appear. Josh Wander, a resident of the Mount of Olives, frequently prays at the Kotel (the Western Wall). One of his favorite spots is the indoor section to the north of the outdoor plaza. When he went to pray at the holy site on Tuesday, he was surprised to see water flowing in rivulets from between the stones. “I have seen water dripping before but this was clearly more than condensation from the cold stones,“ Wander told Breaking Israel News. Tuesday was the 17th of the Hebrew month of Tammuz, a fast day commemorating the day the Roman forces breached the walls of Jerusalem after a long siege in 69 CE. It begins the three week period of austerity leading up to the Ninth of Av, memorializing the destruction of the Jewish Temples. “Perhaps the walls were crying for the destruction of the Temple,“ conjectured Wander. Water flowing from the Temple Mount is one of the precursors to the Messiah described by the prophet Joel. …and a fountain shall come forth of the house of Hashem and shall water the valley of Shittim. Joel 4:18 The watery sign is so significant that it is repeated by the Prophet Ezekiel, who described it in detail. And he brought me back unto the door of the house; and behold waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward for the forefront of the house looked toward the east; and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house on the south of the altar. Ezekiel 47:1 Wander could not verify the source of the water, whether it was Divine or mundane, but he speculated that since the Messiah has not been announced, the phenomenon was most probably due to leaky plumbing from the Arab Quarter houses that sit above the indoor area. If his theory is correct, this will not be the first time that leaky pipes have led to Messianic false-alarms. In 2015, a burst pipe near Wilson’s Arch, close to where Wander discovered flowing water, led to similar Messianic speculation. A few years previous to that incident, a similar situation near the Border Police Station at the Western Wall caused by clogged pipes in the bathroom, prompted the same reaction.
