The United Nations (UN) has called an emergency meeting for Monday, July 24, 2017. The issue is the violence in Jerusalem surrounding the Temple Mount.

Sweden, France, and Egypt have called for the meeting. The news was given to the world by a tweet. Sweden ambassador to the Security Council Carl Skau made the following statement on Twitter.

The Quartet also expressed to “demonstrate maximum restraint, refrain from provocative actions and work towards de-escalating the situation.”

On Tuesday, July 25, 2017, the UN will have their open monthly meeting on the Middle East.

The Muslim population is against the idea of passing through metal detectors to gain access to the Temple Mount. The Muslim population is against the idea of any security measures. This is per a tweet from Khaled Abu Toameh who is a journalist and TV producer.

Across a hashtag #لا_أنصاف_حلول. Jerusalemites profess reject all solutions that promotes occupation through informed rather than portals.

This same attitude is conveyed in an article in the Times of Israel. The title of the article…Arab MK: ‘Whole Arab world will rise up’ if Israel doesn’t remove metal detectors

July 23, 2017: The Israeli Embassy in Amman, Jordan came under attack. A stabbing of an Israeli security officer was attempted. The terrorist was killed and two others were injured.

July 21, 2017: A Jewish family was attacked during supper on Friday night north of Jerusalem in Halamish. A terrorist entered the home and stabbed three people to death.

Violence between Palestinians and Israelis has occurred south of Jerusalem in Hebron near the Tomb of the Patriarchs.

Clashes continue to occur in East Jerusalem or what we know as the Mount of Olives. A reminder of what the future holds on the Mount of Olives…

Zechariah 14:4 On that day His feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley, so that one half of the Mount shall move northward, and the other half southward.

Trend Update: Israel & Syria Exchange Missiles, March 2017

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 17, 2017 by paulthepoke

Zechariah 12:3 On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it.

March 17, 2017: Israel and Syria have exchanged missile fire. Syria fired a surface to air missile towards Israel. Syria is reported to be shooting missiles at Israeli Air Defense jets. Israeli newspaper Haaretz indicates the Syrian missile was shot down by the Israel missile defense Arrow system. The missile was intercepted north of Jerusalem.

Arrow is one of three Israeli defense systems. Arrow has capabilities to intercept missiles above the Earth’s atmosphere. A second system is the Iron Dome. The Iron Dome can take out short range rockets. The third system is David’s sling. The sling accounts for mid-range threats.

Syria claims to have shot down an Israeli jet. Israel is denying the report and indicates all aircraft are accounted. The area in question is the eastern part of the Homs Province.

“As part of its right to defend the sanctity of its territory, the Syrian air defense responded to this aggression and shot down one of the planes while the rest of them were forced to flee,” Syrian Foreign Minister.

Syria has also called on the UN for assistance in the matter.

“Syria calls on the UN Secretary General and the President of the UNSC to condemn this blatant Israeli aggression, to force Israel to stop supporting terrorism in Syria, to implement all UNSC resolutions on counter-terrorism, including resolution No. 2253, to withdraw from the whole occupied Syrian Golan to the line of June 4th, 1967, and to implement resolution No. 497 for 1981,” Syrian Foreign Minister.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended Israel’s actions.

“Our policy is very consistent: when we identify attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah, and we have the intelligence and operational feasibility – we work to prevent this. That’s how it’s been and that’s how it will be, we have determination, and the proof is that we are acting, and everyone has to take this into account,” Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel.

The Syrian Foreign Minister also believes Israel is supporting ISIS. This sounds crazy. But it is important to remember Syria is of the Shia brand of Islam and ISIS is of Sunni belief.

“This flagrant attack is part of the Zionist enemy’s persistent efforts to support the terrorist gangs of ISIS. It will be responded to directly with all possible means.” Syrian Foreign Minister.

On Friday, March 17, 2017, Russia requested Israel’s envoy Gary Koren regarding the military action. This occurred in less than 24 hours after the Thursday night missile exchange per The Times of Israel.

Trend Update: Golan Heights/God’s Spring Appointed Feasts, 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Spring Feasts, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 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.

Momentum is gathering for dividing the land of Israel. This time (April 2016), there is no promise of land for peace. Now, the world is claiming the Golan Heights is not part of Israel.

In Israel, the Golan is in the far northeast part of the country. The Golan Heights is bordered by Syria to the east. Lebanon borders the Golan on the north. The Sea of Galilee is to the southwest. Jordan is on the southern border.

Genesis 12:3 “…And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

The chorus was started on April 19, 2016 with the United States and Germany. The US State Department openly states the Golan Heights is not part of Israel. “This position was maintained by both Democratic and Republican administrations. Those territories are not part of Israel and the status of those territories should be determined through negotiations.”

The German Foreign Ministry stated, “It’s a basic principle of international law and the UN charter that no state can claim the right to annex another state’s territory just like that.”

On April 20, 2016, the European Union has thrown in their two cents. “The EU recognizes Israel within its pre-1967 boundaries, regardless of the (Israeli) government’s claims on other areas, until a final settlement is reached,” EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4793821,00.html

The United Nations Security Council has weighed in on the topic as of April 21, 2016. They are opposed to Israel in the Golan Heights and are quoting Security Council resolutions.

http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Politics-And-Diplomacy/World-unconvinced-by-Natanyahus-claim-Golan-will-remain-part-of-Israel-451748

Yes, the Arab League and Syria are upset…

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, “The Golan will forever remain in Israel’s hands.”

My money is ultimately on Israel. Amos 9:15 I will plant them on their land, and they shall never again be uprooted out of the land that I have given them,” says the Lord your God. The Jewish people have been replanted in the land as of 1917. Israel became a nation again in 1948. Jerusalem became the capital again in 1967. It has been about 50 years since something big happened…Jubilee???

By the way, God’s Spring Appointed Feasts are about to begin. Passover begins at sundown on Friday, 4/22/2016 on our Gregorian calendar, Nisan 14 if you are on Hebrew time.

Trend Update: Land for Peace/January 2015

Posted in Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 4, 2015 by paulthepoke

Genesis 12:3 “…And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

Joel 3:2b …My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land.

Foreign policy decisions around the globe are being made in light of God’s chosen people. What will countries do with the land (Israel) that God gave to His people? God says He will have a response.

On December 30, 2014 the United Nations Security Council presented a resolution for Palestinian statehood by 2017. The vote was to force Israel to divide Jerusalem. Palestine is to be established based on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital. Below is a copy of the proposed resolution.

The resolution did not pass. It failed by one vote. Eight countries (Russia, Argentina, Chad, Chile, China, France, Jordan, Luxembourg) voted in favor of a Palestinian state, two voted against (United States, Australia), and five abstained (Nigeria, United Kingdom, Lithuania, South Korea, Rwanda). Nigeria was expected to vote for but changed its stance and abstained at this time.

After the vote, Russia was critical of the vote and called this a “strategic mistake”.

One day later, 12/31/14, the Palestinians joined the International Criminal Court. Speculation is the Palestinians will use this position to file charges of war crimes against Israel.

God has promised many times over that He will bring His people back to their land, Israel. There are tens of examples. The regathering of Israel is a theme of the Bible, both the Old Testament and New Testament. Here are a few examples.

Jeremiah 32:37 “Behold, I will gather them out of all the lands to which I have driven them in My anger, in My wrath and in great indignation; and I will bring them back to this place and make them dwell in safety.”

Ezekiel 11:17 “Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “I will gather you from the peoples and assemble you out of the countries among which you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.”’

Psalms 107:2-3 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary and gathered from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.

Deuteronomy 30:3 then the LORD your God will restore you from captivity, and have compassion on you, and will gather you again from all the peoples where the LORD your God has scattered you.

Romans 11:26: and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, “THE DELIVERER WILL COME FROM ZION, HE WILL REMOVE UNGODLINESS FROM JACOB.” See Romans 11 for details of Israel’s future. God has not forgotten His people.As background to these verses, 2014 marked the year with the greatest amount of immigration to Israel since 2002. “Aliyah” is the term Jews refer to immigration to Israel. The Jews are going up to Jerusalem, “Aliyah”. France was the country with the greatest number of immigrants. The country with the second largest number of immigrants was Ukraine.http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4609941,00.html
