Trend Update: Israeli Activity in Golan Heights…Allegedly, September 2017

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on September 9, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Lord GOD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother.

Israeli activity is increasing in and around God’s mountains. These mountains are in the Golan Heights in northern Israel.

This is a developing story. Israel reportedly has crossed into the village of Beer Ajam. The village is held by Syrian moderate forces. The Syrian government also reports Israeli flights over Beer Ajam in the Quneitra province.

Russian forces are located just south of this location in the village of Quneitra.

Syrian media is reporting Israeli jets attacked a target in Syria while in Lebanese air space.

A Hezbollah position on the Lebanon/Syria was attacked near Baalbeck. Israel is suspected in the attack by Syria.

According to the Lebanese Army, Israeli jets and drones were viewed flying recon mission in the Golan Heights.

Understandably, this story is being lost in the United States with all of the natural disasters. Keep your eyes on God’s chosen people, Israel.

Trend Update: Israel Bombs Syrian Research Center, September 2017

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 7, 2017 by paulthepoke

Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. “Hamath and Arpad are put to shame, for they have heard bad news; they are disheartened. There is anxiety by the sea, it cannot be calmed.

Hamath: The name means “fortress”. In the times of Jeremiah, Hamath was a city in valley of the Orontes River. Hamath was the capital of the northern kingdom of ancient Syria. Today, this is the city known as Hama, Syria.

Click on video link below for geography and additional analysis.

September 7, 2017: Hama, Syria is prophetically significant. Roughly 2,600 years ago the prophet Jeremiah wrote about Hamath, Syria. In the early morning hours, Israeli Defense Force jets bombed a chemical plant on the outskirts of the ancient city. The operation took place at approximately 2:30 in the morning. The location has been dubbed as a “scientific research center for chemical weapons”. Missile development is also believed to be conducted at this site. Multiple weapons convoys were also hit during operation. Two Syrian soldiers are reported as dead.

Amos Yadlin is the former head of Israeli military intelligence and Executive Director of Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies (INSS). In response to the attack in Syria, Yadlin tweeted the following.

amos yadlin

“The reported attack overnight is not routine. It is a military-scientific Syrian site in which they produce, among other things, precision missiles, some of which will be significant in the next military campaign.”

“…chemical weapons and explosives that have killed thousands of Syrian civilians. If it was an Israeli attack, it is finally an Israeli moral statement about the massacre in Syria.”

“Israel won’t allow for empowerment and production of strategic arms. Israel intends to enforce its red lines despite the fact that the great powers are ignoring them. The presence of Russian air defense does not prevent airstrikes attributed to Israel. Now it’s important to keep the escalation in check and to prepare for a Syrian-Iranian-Hezbollah response and even opposition from Russia.”

See this link for Amos Yadlin’s Twitter page. https://twitter.com/YadlinAmos

 

Which brings up an interesting question. What happened to the Russian S400 Missile System response?

In response, Syria has announced the following warning of “dangerous repercussions of this aggressive action to the security and stability of the region”.

The United States sanctions on this “research” facility and its employees have now been rendered useless.

The southern Sunni Muslims (Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia) are curiously quiet. Makes one wonder what is going on behind the scenes.

Keep in mind, Syria is supported by Iran who is supported by Russia. See Ezekiel 38.

The geo-political situation in the Middle East just got more interesting…

Trend Update: Iranian Activity Near the Golan Heights, September 2017

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 39:2 And I will turn you about and drive you forward, and bring you up from the uttermost parts of the north, and lead you against the mountains of Israel.

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet…

August 31, 2017: The United States is allowing Iranian supported militia less than ten kilometers from the Israeli Golan Heights in Syria. Israel obviously does not support the move. Syria is supported by Iran and Hezbollah out of Lebanon. All of these groups are Shia Muslims and they support Syria’s President Assad.

The support behind all of the Shia activity in Syria is Russia. These comments are quoted per Pravda out of Russia. These were the observations of the Russians regarding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his meeting with Vladimir Putin in Sochi, Russia last week.

Netanyahu was observed to be “too emotional and at times even close to panic”. Israeli officials denied the observations.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/us-to-let-iranian-backed-militias-within-10-km-of-golan-heights-report/

 

The Head of Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah has surfaced, literally. Nasrallah made the road trip from his bunker to Damascus to see President Assad of Syria. The leader of Hezbollah has been living in a hole since 2006 and the war against Israel. Nasrallah is on Israel’s most wanted list.

“We call on the state to devise a plan and take a sovereign decision to liberate the Shebaa Farms and the Kfarshouba Hills,” Hassan Nasrallah, Leader of Hezbollah.

Shebaa Farms is also known as Mount Dov in Hebrew. Nasrallah apparently wants to go another round with Israel.

August 28, 2017: ISIS and Hezbollah agreed to a truce. Hundreds of ISIS fighters and pro ISIS civilians were sent packing in a bus from the Lebanon and Syria border. It is believed pro ISIS people were sent to eastern Syria near Iraq. With this deal, ISIS is done in Lebanon. (As an aside, ISIS has been defeated west of Mosul in Tal Afar, Iraq. ISIS is essentially done in Iraq. And ISIS is on the ropes in Raqqah, Syria.)

Nasrallah was in support of the deal and told Assad the following.

“We have a humanitarian cause. We wish you to help us. We can only know what happened to the soldiers through this compromise.”

Assad told Nasrallah, “This will make things difficult for me.”

https://www.timesofisrael.com/hezbollah-chief-urges-recapture-of-mt-dov-from-israel

 

August 31, 2017: Behold Israel is reporting Russia has stationed the S-400 missile system near Tartus. This is the factory that manufactures long-range missiles for Hezbollah. The factory is supported and paid for by Iran.

http://beholdisrael.org/news-israel/news/russia-reportedly-deploys-s-400-missile-system-iranian-arms-factory-syria

We know one thing for sure. Iran, Assad (Syria), and Nasrallah (Hezbollah in Lebanon) are united against Israel.

Trend Update: Iranian Build in Syria Grows, August 2017

Posted in Prophecy, Trend Update, Ezekiel 38-39, Burden of Damascus, Persia/Elam/Iran with tags , , , , , , , on August 28, 2017 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 17:1 The oracle concerning Damascus. “Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city and will become a fallen ruin.”

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet…

Historically, Iran has been called Persia until the name change in the 20th century. Iran is a key player in the Ezekiel 38-39 narrative. The Bible says Iran will be aligned with modern day Russia and Turkey for an invasion of the mountains of Israel.

August 28, 2017: Iran continues to fill the void of a defeated ISIS. Initially, Iran was building a single missile factory. Now, Israel is reporting multiple missile factories are being built in Syria and Lebanon.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel had the following comments.

“(Iran’s) base of military entrenchment as part of its declared goal to eradicate Israel. It is also building sites to produce precision-guided missiles towards that end, in both Syria and in Lebanon. This is something Israel cannot accept. This is something the U.N. should not accept.”

Israel is prepared to act independently to stop Iran’s military expansion in Syria.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-netanyahu-idUSKCN1B80TT

Israel has also stated a defined objective. An Israeli official stated President Assad’s palace would be targeted. Assad’s palace is located in Damascus, Syria. Israel sees the situation inside of Syria changing rapidly with Iran asserting itself in the country.

Israel states they will not acknowledge cease fire agreements reached by the United States and Russia.

http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Israeli-Official-If-Iran-extends-in-Syrian-well-bomb-Assads-palace-503597?

 

Trouble is building in Syria and throughout the Middle East. Iran is replacing ISIS. Shia Muslims are replacing Sunni.

Consider the Burden of Damascus (Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 49:23-27) and Magog’s Invasion of Israel (Ezekiel 38-39) happening at the same time. Iran moving into Syria may be the catalyst. It is starting to look like this is a possibility. God has options.

Trend Update: Putin & Netanyahu Meet in Sochi, Russia, August 2017

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on August 23, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 39:2 And I will turn you about and drive you forward, and bring you up from the uttermost parts of the north, and lead you against the mountains of Israel.

The prophet Ezekiel is talking to Gog of Magog. Magog is widely considered to be modern day Russia.

August 21, 2017: Sputnik news out of Russia issued the following statement about Scythian artifacts and history. A collection from Russia’s Hermitage Museum was released to London for exhibition. The collection tells the story of the “Scythians, powerful nomadic tribes from Siberia”. A majority of the artifacts have never left Russia until now. The discovered items have been preserved in Siberia’s ice, snow, and permafrost.

Here are a couple of quotes from the story.

               Scythians – groups of formidable warriors that roamed the vast open plains of modern-day Siberia 2,500 years ago and stretched as far as the Black Sea and even the edge of China.

               Scythians’ encounters with the Greeks, Assyrians and Persians were written into history. Feared and admired, the masters of mounted warfare were forgotten over time until now.

A Russian news story is identifying Scythians as Siberian Russians. Ancient historians consistently equate Scythians with Magog. Modern day Russia = Scythians = Magog per Russians.

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet…

Iran was Persia throughout history until the name change in the 20th century.

August 23, 2017: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel met with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin in Sochi, Russia. The primary concern of the meeting was the Iranian military build up in Syria. Iran is taking the place of ISIS as they are removed from the region.

After the meeting, Prime Minister Netanyahu made the following release on Twitter. The bottom line is Iran is not welcome in the region. Israel finds Iranian presence unacceptable. For the first time, the word “war” was inserted into the conversation regarding Iran. Israel states it will defend itself in any form.

Click on the link below to listen. The tweet is from Netanyahu himself. Comments are less than one minute.

https://twitter.com/IsraeliPM/status/900397524191772672

 

F35Following the comments, Israel announced they were strengthening their Air Force. Israel’s concern is a nuclear Iran. The Jewish state announced it will be receiving two additional stealth F35 fighter jets. Israel indicates they “will provide complete air superiority in the region for the next 40 years”.

Approximately 2,600 years ago, the LORD (military term) God revealed His weaponry to the public. He informed Gog, the leader of Magog, of His intentions.

Ezekiel 38:21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Lord GOD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother.

Ezekiel 38:22 “With pestilence and bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him, and I will rain upon him and his hordes and the many peoples who are with him torrential rains and hailstones, fire and sulfur.”

Ezekiel 39:6 I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coastlands, and they shall know that I am the LORD. -Lord God

Trend Update: Iran Instead of ISIS, August 2017

Posted in Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet…

August 13, 2017: Recent history is repeating itself again. When one set of terrorists is eliminated, another set of issues will take its place. ISIS is gradually being removed from the current Middle East scenario.

The head of Israel’s Intelligence Agency, Mossad, indicated Iran is taking the territories vacated by ISIS. Mossad is lead by Yossi Cohen. Iran is expanding by proxy in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Yemen. Shia Muslims are replacing Sunni Muslims.

Israel along with President Trump has expressed concern regarding Iranian compliance of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The JCPOA is the nuclear deal President Obama signed with the Iranians. Iran maintains their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. Iran also states they are not developing ballistic missiles that carry nuclear weapons.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel has made it clear. Israel does not follow other international agreements when it comes to the security of the nation.

“Israel will continue to work with determination and in a variety of ways to protect itself from these threats,” stated Netanyahu.

Prime Minister Netanyahu is looking to go to war without approval of the full cabinet. The law comes up for vote before the Knesset in October. The Prime Minister is not confirming or denying the possibility.

Annual Army Day Military ParadeFor its part, Iranian legislators recently passed a spending bill to increase funding to the nation’s missile program. Some lawmakers chanted “Death to America” with the passing of the program. $260 million was committed to the missile program and the Quds Force. The Quds Force is a military unit deployed in Syria and Iraq.

Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east.

Significant oil finds are occurring in the Golan Heights of Israel “with the potential of billions of barrels”. The world sees this territory as occupied Syria. If that is not intriguing enough, another significant find is reported to be in valley of Meggido-Jezreel. This is also known as…

Revelation 16:16 And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

There are massive natural gas reserves off the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean Sea. They are the Leviathan and Tamar fields.

china unChinese peacekeeping troops are more acceptable to Israel because they are not Arab. Israel has been agreeable to Chinese troops to Lebanon in the past. Israel sees Asians as more impartial.

China is looking to join the United Nations peace keeping forces in the Golan Heights. The peacekeeping branch of the UN is called the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF).

Trend Update: Russia, Turkey, & Iran…Peace Makers in Syria, August 2017

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 9, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 38:1-2 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal…

Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-Togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet…

https://paulthepoke.com/category/ezekiel-38-39/

Ezekiel 38-39 says Russia allied with Turkey, Iran and others are going to invade Israel from the north. Look who is getting together to form an alliance for peace on Israel’s northern border in Syria.

Click on video for geography and analysis.

August 8-9, 2017: Turkey, Iran, and Russia are having peace talks about “safe zones” in Syria. The location of the discussion is Tehran, Iran. This is according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

According to Lavrov, there are three operating safe zones in Syria. They include: southern Syria, Eastern Ghouta, and north of Homs. The focus of the peace talks is the Idlib province.

The safe zones were allegedly brokered on May 4, 2017. Turkey, Iran and Russia signed the deal to establish safe zones in Syria. More discussion is scheduled for later in August 2017.

This per the Daily Sabah out of Turkey.

https://www.dailysabah.com/diplomacy/2017/08/07/turkey-iran-russia-to-hold-syria-talks-in-tehran-aug-8-9

 

August 9, 2017: A peace deal has been reached in Cairo, Egypt regarding a safe zone. The meeting was between the Russian Defense Ministry and Syrian opposition. The safe zone is the area between Hama (ancient Hamath of Jeremiah 49) and Homs. Again…Russia, Turkey, and Iran are the enforcers of the ceasefire.

This per Sputnik News out of Russia.

https://sputniknews.com/military/201708091056300824-syrian-opposition-deescalation-zone-deal/

 

August 8, 2017: Israel has held secret talks with the Russians and the United States. Meetings reportedly took place in Europe and Jordan. The Israeli concern is the increased presence of Iranian troops near the border in the Golan Heights. Increased Iranian presence is an Israeli concern all across Syria.

Here is the official statement from Israel.

“Senior Israeli officials said that the main dispute was that the Americans and the Russians see the cease-fire in southern Syria and the safe zones as a practical and tactical means of stabilizing the situation and enable a focus on wiping out the Islamic State and lowering the flames of the civil war. Israel, however, believes that the agreement should be considered from a long-term, strategic perspective and should focus on what the extent of Iranian influence will be in Syria after the civil war ends.

The Israelis told their interlocutors that the agreement should provide a solution not regarding Iranian presence in the 20 kilometers from the Israeli border, but for the rest of Syria as well. A senior Israeli official said the Israelis told the Russians and the Americans that they had to demand from the Iranians that the Revolutionary Guards, Hezbollah and the Shi’ite militias in Syria must leave the country.”

Southfront is a global intelligence agency.

https://southfront.org/israel-held-secret-talks-with-russia-us-in-attempt-to-reduce-growing-iranian-influence-in-syria/

More troops are going to be necessary to keep the peace. This is escalating faster than earlier plans revealed by the Russians.

IDP_2017_Final_with UN logo_WebIn case you didn’t know…The United Nations International Peace Day is scheduled for September 21, 2017. This also coincides with the start of God’s Appointed Fall Feasts. This year’s theme: Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All.

http://internationaldayofpeace.org/

For those who have not made a decision on Jesus Christ. You might want to think about it. Did He really die for sin?

Time to be vigilant and pay attention…

1 Thessalonians 5:3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.
