Genesis 16:11-12 “And the angel of the LORD said to her, “Behold, you are pregnant and shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, because the LORD has listened to your affliction. He shall be a wild donkey of a man, his hand against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he shall dwell over against all his kinsmen.”

These are the descendants of Ishmael…

May 15, 2018: Nakba Day

Nakba is the word for “catastrophe” in Arabic. Palestinians remember the day after Israeli independence in 1948. The Palestinians were removed from their land and scattered because of the Jewish “occupation”.

Palestinians have a key as symbol of remembrance. The key is a reminder of the houses they were forced out of when Israel occupied the land. The hope is to take back the land and their homes.

See video link for additional analysis.

Typically, the day is commemorated with skirmishes against the Israeli Defense Forces. Activities include Molotov cocktails, throwing rocks, burning tires, roadside bombs, terror kites, arson, grenades, pipe bombs, and destruction of property.

Palestinian protests on the Gaza/Israeli border have been occurring for weeks. Yesterday, a terror attack was foiled by the Israeli Defense Forces. At least 59 Palestinians were killed along with over 2,800 injuries on May 14 alone. This took place as the United States moved its Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

 

There has been international outcry for excessive force used by Israel. The IDF dropped leaflets as warnings against further violence. Israel has responded by gun fire, tear gas, and air to ground missiles.

Inside the Gaza Strip, the terrorist group Hamas is threatening more violence. In response, Israel has indicated it will assassinate Hamas leadership if the violence continues. Israel sent a message to Hamas through the Egyptian press.

“If the protests continue, the assassinations will return,” Israeli Security Official.

US Embassy Move to Jerusalem Set for “This Generation” ???, February 2018

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 24, 2018 by paulthepoke

Zechariah 12:2a “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around…

The date has been set. News of the move broke via Twitter.

The United States will move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Israel’s 70th Independence Day. The date is May 14, 2018.

This is 70 years to the date President Harry Truman announced the re-birth of Israel.

May 14, 1948: late morning eastern standard time (late afternoon in Palestine): David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, reads a “Declaration of Independence,” which proclaims the existence of a Jewish state called Israel beginning on May 15, 1948, at 12:00 midnight Palestine time (6:00 p.m., May 14, 1948, eastern standard time).

May 14, 1948, 6 p.m. eastern standard time (12:00 midnight in Palestine): The British mandate for Palestine expires, and the state of Israel comes into being.

May 14, 1948, 6:11 p.m. eastern standard time: The United States recognizes Israel on a de facto basis. The White House issues the following statement: “This Government has been informed that a Jewish state has been proclaimed in Palestine, and recognition has been requested by the provisional government thereof. The United States recognizes the provisional government as the de facto authority of the State of Israel.”

“We’re planning to open the new US Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem in May. The Embassy opening will coincide with Israel’s 70th anniversary. The Embassy will initially be located in Arnona, on a compound that currently houses the consular operations of Consulate General Jerusalem. At least initially, it will consist of the Ambassador and a small team.” -US State Department

See video link below for geography and additional analysis.

Sheldon Adelson, CEO of Las Vegas Sands, is willing to privately pay for the embassy move. The cost is estimated to be $500 million. Adelson is a supporter of the Republican Party. He has also backed both President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel in the past.

The Palestinians refer to Israeli Independence as Nakba Day. Nakba is the Arabic word for “catastrophe”. They acknowledge Nakba Day the day after Israel’s declaration on May 15. Nakba day was initiated on Israel’s 50th Independence Day by Yasser Arafat. The day is typically celebrated with conflict and skirmishes against the Israeli Defense Forces.

As a result, Palestinians have responded in anger and rage. Violence broke out in Gaza and the West Bank.

Saeb Erekat, Senior Palestinian Negotiator made the following statements.

“Determination to violate international law, destroy the two-state solution and provoke the feelings of the Palestinian people as well as of all Arabs, Muslims and Christians around the globe. Trump and his team have disqualified the US from being part of the solution between Israelis and Palestinians; rather, the world now sees that they are part of the problem.”

Sami Abu Zuhri, Hamas Official was quoted.

“Moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem is a declaration of war against the Arab and Muslim nation, and the US administration must reconsider its move.”

Some would argue, the time span covered in this post is a Biblical generation.

Psalm 90:10 The years of our life are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty; yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away.

Are we entering a prophetic window of time??? The context is the Olivet Discourse and the end of time scenario. Jesus made this comment.

Matthew 24:33-34 So also, when you see all these things, you know that He is near, at the very gates. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.

 

It is ultimately your personal business…But I highly recommend getting right with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, by this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures…

Search your heart, think about it…

 

Trend Update: Israel Land Division, Military Implications, June 2016

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , on May 31, 2016 by paulthepoke

Joel 3:2 I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land..

Israel and they have divided up My land. It is a foregone conclusion as to the result of God’s land Israel. The nations have and will further divide the land. Humanity is a serial offender of dividing God’s land. Peace talks (2016) will ultimately result in the division of the land per Joel 3:2. The timing remains to be seen.

Here is a brief video regarding the military implications of dividing the land of Israel.
