Trend Update: Trouble Brewing on the Arabian Peninsula, November 2017

Posted in Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 11, 2017 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 21:13-15 The oracle concerning Arabia. In the thickets in Arabia you will lodge, O caravans of Dedanites. To the thirsty bring water; meet the fugitive with bread, O inhabitants of the land of Tema. For they have fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow, and from the press of battle.

Jeremiah 49:28a Concerning Kedar

The prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah define “Arabia” or modern day Saudi Arabia. This is the Hebrew word Arab. It means a desert plateau, a country east of Israel (Strong’s Concordance).

The following peoples and their descendants make up Arabia per the prophets: Dedan, Tema, and Kedar.

November 11, 2017: Tension is building on the Arabian Peninsula. At the core of the issue is conflict between Iran (Shia Muslims) and Saudi Arabia (Sunni Muslims). The Saudis and their allies have concerns about a nuclear Iran.

The Houthi Shia rebels in Yemen are supported by Iran. Earlier in the week, a missile was fired from Yemen that targeted Riyadh’s (Saudi Arabia) commercial International Airport. The missile was intercepted by the Saudi’s. There were no injuries or damage reported. The Saudi’s have stated Iran has committed an act of war.

French President Emmanuel Macron is on the record blaming the Iranians. “The missile which was intercepted by Saudi Arabia launched from Yemen, which obviously is an Iranian missile, shows precisely the strength of their program.” -Emmanuel Macron

United States Air Force sources are also confirming Iranian involvement in the missile launch from Yemen to Riyadh.

With the announcement of the resignation, Hezbollah’s (Shia Muslim) leader Hassan Nasrallah accused Saudi Arabia of declaring war on Lebanon. “In short, it is clear that Saudi Arabia and Saudi officials have declared war on Lebanon and on Hezbollah in Lebanon, but I have to say this is a war on Lebanon.”

The concern is Lebanon erupting into a civil war like Yemen with Saudi and Iranian proxies. The Saudis have ordered all citizens to leave Lebanon. Saudi money is leaving Lebanon banks by the billions.

This week, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS) has been arresting over 200 officials in the name of “corruption”. The 32 year old MBS is the future king of Saudi Arabia. At least 11 family members were corralled. Around 38 government ministers were detained. Military, religious, and business leaders have been arrested as well.

Money is moving out of Saudi Arabia by the hundreds of billions. Money is moving around the Middle East by the hundreds of billions. The rich and wealthy are freaking out in fear of having their assets seized. The Saudi government is having budget problems. Follow the money.

https://www.globalresearch.ca/real-motive-behind-saudi-purge-emerges-800-billion-in-confiscated-assets/5617466

 

Scripture is very clear. In the final analysis, the Saudis are going to get pummeled. Isaiah bears witness and confirms their fate.

Isaiah 21:16-17 For thus the Lord said to me, “Within a year, according to the years of a hired worker, all the glory of Kedar will come to an end. And the remainder of the archers of the mighty men of the sons of Kedar will be few, for the LORD, the God of Israel, has spoken.”

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.

https://maps.southfront.org/israeli-troops-enter-militant-held-area-of-beer-ajam-in-golan-heights-reports/

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.

http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Initial-Israel-attacked-chemical-weapons-facility-in-Syria-Arab-media-claims-504455

 

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…

Israel is rehearsing an attack on the terrorist group Hezbollah out of Lebanon. The military exercise is taking place in northern Israel. The activity is a war simulation. Hezbollah’s response, “We are ready for an act of Israeli stupidity.”

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: 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.

Trend Update: Ceasefire Holding Near Golan Heights, July 2017

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Ezekiel 38-39, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 11, 2017 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 2:13 And it will be against all the cedars of Lebanon that are lofty and lifted up, against all the oaks of Bashan

Bashan is the modern day Golan Heights. This would be the area in the far north east corner of modern day Israel. This place is south of modern day Damascus, Syria. Geographical land marks would include a region east of the Jordan River and north of the Arnon River. This territory extended from Gilead in the south to Mount Hermon on the north.

 

The following groups are currently located in the Golan region: Syrian Government forces supported by Russia, ISIS, rebel forces supported by the United States, and Israeli forces.

Russia’s Vladimir Putin and the United States’ Donald Trump agreed to a cease fire in southwest Syria on July 7, 2017. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov attended the meeting as well as US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Tillerson said there was a “defined agreement” between the parties. The meeting between Trump and Putin lasted two hours and 16 minutes.

“This is our first indication of the US and Russia being able to work together in Syria,” Tillerson said.

The ceasefire started in the de-escalation zone at noon Damascus time, July 9, 2017.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/07/politics/syria-ceasefire-us-russia-tillerson/index.html

July 10, 2017: UN peace talks regarding Syria started in Geneva. The ceasefire has generally held despite “teething problems”.

The ceasefire is for three provinces in southern Syria. Four “de-escalation zones” or “baskets” have been established. But these baskets have not been implemented or enforced.

The sticking point in the negotiations is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“The specter that is hanging over all of that is the fate of Bashar al-Assad. I think it is fair to say that this is one area where the two sides are still diametrically opposed – whether Assad should be allowed to stay or whether he should go,” Al Jazeera’s Sue Turton.

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/07/syria-ceasefire-holding-geneva-talks-envoy-170710155854227.html

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel has expressed concern about Iran and its terrorist proxies Hezbollah from moving into the region during the ceasefire. Hezbollah is from Lebanon. Israel wants the United States and Russia to enforce a buffer zone in southwest Syria. Israel buffer

“I had deep discussions about this last week with US Secretary of State Tillerson and with Russian Vladimir Putin. Both told me that they understand Israel’s position and will take our demands into account,” Prime Minister Netanyahu.

bibi“For our part, we will continue to monitor developments beyond our borders while strongly upholding our red lines: prevent the strengthening of Hezbollah via Syria, with emphasis on the acquisition of precision weapons; prevent Hezbollah — or Iranian forces — from establishing a ground presence along our border; and prevent the establishment of an Iranian military presence in Syria as a whole,” Benjamin Netanyahu.
