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

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.

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: Jared Kushner to Negotiate Middle East Peace, June 2017

Posted in Antichrist/Beast, Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on June 19, 2017 by paulthepoke

Daniel 9:27 “And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.”

Now somebody is going to negotiate a peace plan. Is Jared Kushner “The Man”??? Time will tell. Jared Kushner is a man of intrigue, interest, and speculation.

Kushner is President Trump’s son in law and go to guy for Middle East Peace. He is set to arrive in the Middle East on Wednesday.

Kushner will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem. Then he will meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.

“President Trump has made it clear that working toward achieving a lasting peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians is a top priority for him. He strongly believes that peace is possible.” -White House Official.

Based on the feedback I get, there will be many watching…

 

Trend Update: Trump & Netanyahu Meet in DC, February 2017

Posted in Peace Plan, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 15, 2017 by paulthepoke

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless those who bless you…

February 15, 2017: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel traveled to Washington D.C. to meet with President Donald Trump.

President Trump has set a different tone in comparison to previous United States presidents. A two state solution is not a necessary condition for peace.

“I like the one that both parties like. I can live with either one. I thought for a while that two states looked like the easier of the two. If Israel and the Palestinians are happy, I like the one they like the best.” –President Trump.

Trump also called for a change in attitude of the Palestinians.

“(Palestinians) have to get rid of some of that hate that they are taught at a very young age. They must also acknowledge Israel’s right to exist.” –President Trump.

Trump indicated he is committed to peace in the Middle East.

“Our administration is committed to working with Israel and our common allies in the region toward greater security and stability. That includes working on a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. We’ll be working on it very, very diligently. Very important to me also.” –President Trump.

A sticking point in peace talks has been the construction of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu indicated he was willing to consider the issue.

“Trump is willing to upgrade our ties in every field. So if there’s a request from the president to examine this issue of construction in the settlement then I think our national interest to reach an understanding. It is worth making an effort… we agreed to continue to discuss this issue to try to reach understandings that fit our desire for reaching peace and security.” –Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Another key issue discussed was the potential move of the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“As far as the embassy moving to Jerusalem, I’d love to see that happen. And we are looking at it very, very strongly. We’re looking at it with a great care, a great care, believe me. And we’ll see what happens.” –President Trump.

“Concerning the embassy, I said I support moving it to Jerusalem. He’s examining the issue thoroughly but he heard our unequivocal opinion on the matter. He wants time to look into the issue.” –Prime Minister Netanyahu.

A tweet by Prime Minister Netanyahu captured the day.

“A warm and excellent meeting with President Donald Trump – a successful day for the State of Israel!”

Trend Update: Peace, Peace, Peace! June 2016

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

Daniel 9:27 And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.

This is the definitive statement indicating the start of the Tribulation. The verse in Daniel is what Jesus quotes in His Olivet Discourse.  Matthew 24:15 So when you see the abomination of desolation – spoken about by Daniel the prophet – standing in the holy place (let the reader understand).

The “he” is the antichrist. As of June 2016, “he” is not on the scene and “he” has not made peace. Humanity is still fighting wars.

And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week…The Hebrew word for “he will make firm” is gabar. The grammar states the antichrist is the cause and he has the strength to make it happen.

The Hebrew word for “covenant” is bariyth. It means: covenant, alliance, pledge between men; treaty, league (man to man).

The length of the treaty is “one week” or echad shabuwa` in the Hebrew. It means: period of seven (days or years), heptad, week.

Definitions are provided by Strong’s Concordance.

As of June 2016, there is a push for peace in the Middle East. There appears to be multiple peace plans on the table.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is urging the Knesset to join the push for peace. He is looking at elements of the Arab Peace Initiative. A key element of the plan provides for Israel’s full diplomatic ties with 57 Arab and Muslim states after a peace accord with the Palestinians. The plan was developed by Saudi Arabia and approved by the Arab League 14 years ago.

Egypt is looking to broker peace between the Arabs, Palestinians, and Israel.

Even former Israeli soldiers have a plan for peace with the Palestinians and Arabs.

On June 3, 2016, France is hosting a peace conference. It includes the Middle East Quartet: the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations – the Arab League, the U.N. Security Council and about 20 countries. Seems like a rather large “quartet”.

Israel and the Palestinians have not been invited to French peace conference.
