Out of Germany, the descendants of Gomer spread themselves into Gaul or modern-day France. Today, these nations are strategically aligning against the United States. From all appearances, Germany is starting to shift towards a Russian alliance.
Earlier this summer, President Trump told NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, “Germany, as far as I’m concerned, is captive to Russia because it’s getting so much of its energy from Russia… We have to talk about the billions and billions of dollars that’s being paid to the country we’re supposed to be protecting you against.”
Recent military sales in the region include a record-breaking deal signed on June 17 between France and Russia. Moscow bought two French assault ships/helicopter carriers worth more than $1.4 billion, with the option for purchasing two more. This is the largest deal between a NATO country and Russia since NATO was created. It’s also the largest defense sale from a Western power to Russia since the World War II era.
The very same day, a German military technology company, Reinmetall, signed a $398 million contract with Russia to develop a “combat training center for Russian ground forces.”
Germany is one of the top exporters of military arms in the world, and the third largest exporter of goods. Its economy dominates the European Union. Germany’s problem has been its lack of strong leadership. Angela Merkel has led Germany since 2005; but, in a surprise recent announcement, she will be stepping down. The satisfaction of the people has waned amid her massive refugee crisis.
She has also been accused of appeasing Russia, while Russia is taking advantage of the lack of leadership. While Germany was starting to deal with the massive refugee crisis on its border, Putin saw an opening. He began marching through the Ukraine in 2014, occupying large areas of land, just like Adolf Hitler did nearly 80 years before. Hitler called the Ukraine the “breadbasket of Europe,” while the Ukrainian people were considered subhuman.
Instead of Germany helping the Ukraine with arms to fend off Putin’s invasion, Angela Merkel decided if the Ukrainians had shipments of weapons coming in, it would lead to war.
In regards to President Trump’s stance on “America first,” Merkel said in 2017 after the G20 summit, “The times when we could fully rely on others are to some extent over — I experienced that in the last few days. We Europeans must really take our destiny into our own hands… Of course we need to have friendly relations with the U.S. and with the U.K. and with other neighbors, including Russia.” She then said, “We have to fight for our own future ourselves.”
Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg was on the fast track to becoming Chancellor of Germany in 2009, then a plagiarism scandal happened and he resigned. He has been living in the US since and has been relatively quiet. In the last couple of years, people are talking about him again.
He has been a harsh critic of President Trump, even calling him a lunatic. Something to note: He’s a bit of an expert on digital currency. He wants a strong Germany and a united EU. He has called for Europe to look beyond short-term actions regarding the refugees.
The Bible teaches that the final King of the North Beast power will control buying and selling:
Revelation 13:16-17 “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
President Trump’s sanctions on Turkey, Iran and Russia have hurt them financially. The US is gaining in financial strength while the rest of the world is falling further behind. A “one world” financial system is something many in the region would jump at.
In the West, we have to stop looking at things from an American perspective. Jerusalem and what happens to her and around her is considered the center of the whole world. Not the US. Jerusalem is the center of everything in the Bible, especially in the last days. The Holy Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire both want Jerusalem, and both have controlled Jeruaslem in the past.
The Holy Roman Empire was a Germanic Empire. Martin Luther made his feelings on both the Ottomans and the Vatican clear: “The Muslim is possessed by the lying spirit… Where the lying spirit holds sway, the murdering spirit is present as well.” He admitted that the Turk had some admirable characteristics; but, just like the Pope, he was a “servant of the devil.”
Germany has caused more wars than any other nation in the history of man. This is evident in not only secular history, but biblical history as well. Throughout the Bible we read about the Assyrians.
First-century Jewish historian Josephus tied the son of Shem, Asshur/Ashur, in with Assyria.
Shem, the third son of Noah, had five sons, who inhabited the land that began at the Euphrates, and reached to the Indian Ocean. Elam left behind him the Elamites, the ancestors of the Persians. Ashur lived in Ninevah and named his descendants Assyrians, who became the most fortunate nation, beyond others – Josephus Complete Works. Antiquities of the Jews, Book I, Chapter VI, Verse 4. Translated by William Whiston in 1867. Kregel Publications, Grand Rapids (MI), 1960, p. 31)
Tacitus was a late first-century historian who also mentioned the Germans and their connection to Asia Minor.
He wrote, “Who would leave the softer abodes of Asia for Germany where nature yields nothing but deformity?” – Tod J. The annals and antiquities of Rajastʾhan: or the central and western Rajpoot states of India, Volume 1. Indian Publication Society, 1899. Original from Princeton University, Digitized Jan 15, 2010, p. 70)
The Bible tells us that Nineveh was built by Asshur, the son of Shem. The Assyrians are his descendants (Genesis 10:11).
Asshur was worshiped as the god of Assyria; he was “the god of war,” and the symbol was a solar deity with a winged disc. Both the winged disc and the swastika were also used by the Hittites. The Hittites are ancient enemies of the Jewish people.
Daniel 7:5-6 “And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’ After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it.”
Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel have both called for a massive European army to defend itself from the US. President Trump has called this insulting. A rift has started between the US and France, with Germany backing France.
Macron recently said that the French-German alliance “is invested with this obligation not to allow the world to slide into chaos, and to accompany it on the road of peace.”
The Bible is clear that dominion was given to the leopard. Which nation has had dominion in the world more than any other? Germany, beginning with the Holy Roman Empire. Germany has also started the last three major wars. They have dominated world events for 150 years.
The Bible also says that the leopard had four heads (kingdoms). Germany’s four heads on the leopard are the First Reich, the Second Reich, Hitler’s Third Reich and then the coming Fourth Reich, which will be the New World Order with Germany leading Europe.
Germany and France have a deep history dating to Charlemagne the Great. Charlemagne’s empire was one of the greatest ever to rule in Europe. After he died, his European Union dissolved. Those on the western side of his empire eventually were called France. Those in the east developed into Germany. Charlemagne ruled over both. Germany and France in modern times founded the European Union.
Hitler believed that God replaced the Jews as His chosen with the Germans and the Holy Roman Empire. He had the spirit of Charlemagne, the second ruler of the Holy Roman Empire. Satan has always used Kings and Kingdoms to kill God’s people, whether it be Christian or Jew.
Charlemagne is considered by many to be the “father of Europe.” It was through his leadership and conquests that a unified European Union began. He was a great warrior and a fierce Catholic.
Europeans are looking for another ruler like Charlemagne. The Holy Roman Empire is rising once again, and the vast majority of people don’t even realize it. Even people living in Europe.
Charlemagne, like Hitler, shocked the world with his bloodlust. One story has him wading through rivers of blood to forcefully convert people to Catholicism. He slaughtered 4,500 Saxon prisoners in a single day.
Today in Europe, one of their most prestigious awards is called the Charlemagne Prize. In recent years, Europe has openly celebrated Charlemagne. Again, the lack of leadership in the EU has prevented them from becoming the world superpower.
The Berlin Group, which is ten of the EU’s core nations, called for a EU super-president that would lead the nations.
Emmanuel Macron won the most recent honor when he impressed the prize committee of his “vision of a new Europe and the re-establishment of the European project.” The committee called Macron “a head of state with a claim to European leadership.” They are actively seeking this new leader.
Germany, historically, is that nation. Under Angela Merkel that will not happen. Her stepping down opens up the possibility for a strong European leader to lead the nations and unite Europe.
Otto von Habsburg, one of the EU’s founding fathers, said, “We do possess a European symbol which belongs to all nations equally. This is the crown of the Holy Roman Empire, which embodies the tradition of Charlemagne.”
Islam has slowly imbedded itself throughout Europe. Occupying “infidel lands” by the sword was an Ottoman way of spreading Islam throughout the Christian West. Occupying infidel lands through the sword is still practiced in the Middle East and parts of Asia; but, unlike the Ottoman Empire, the military might needed for military invasion today is not there alone. Turkey, formerly the Ottoman Empire, has been fighting to be admitted into the E.U. for decades.
In Isaiah 38, the prophet Ezekiel said that Israel would be surrounded by her enemies.
Turkey and Germany/France, along with several other countries including Russia and Iran, are slowly beginning to build forces against Israel. The Leopard in Daniel is Germany, with the feathers representing France, whose national symbol is the rooster.
Ezekiel 38:1 “And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
“Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.”
Germany and France have embraced Socialism and Islam on a massive scale in recent years. These two countries once fought to save the Christian West from Islamic takeover. Today, they have rolled out the red carpet and welcomed the invasion. This undoubtedly has to do with the rapid decline of Christianity in European countries. Not surprisingly so, the UK is number five on the list of least Christian countries. 70% of people living in the UK say they have no religious affiliation. As Christianity dies off, Islam is quickly rising. Native-born Brits are barely having two children per married couple while Muslim families are having on average eight, with many Muslim men having more than one wife.
During Word War One, 16.5 million people died and 21 million were injured. Death and destruction was on a massive scale. The use of chemical weapons was introduced, and men went mad after the hell they lived through. The world had never seen anything like it. Nations came together to build peace. The League of Nations was created, today’s U.N.
Germany and the Ottoman Empire failed to defeat the allies in World War One. The Ottoman Empire was dismantled and became modern-day Turkey. They were relatively quiet until the last couple of decades. The world forgot them. On the other hand, twenty years later, Germany attempted Hitler’s Third Reich. Turkey remained neutral during World War Two, leaning towards the allies by the end of the war. Just two decades earlier, the nations said “never again” until the outbreak of World War Two.
World War Two brought the greatest casualties in any war in human history. Over 60 million people were killed. We also saw the first nuclear weapons used in Hiroshima, Japan.
German/Turkish relations are warming up quickly after hitting a sour note last year. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu recently said, “I respect Mrs. Merkel very much. For the last five, six years, she has been the only real leader in Europe.”
“At the appointed time he shall return and go toward the south; but it shall not be like the former or the latter. For ships from Cyprus shall come against him; therefore he shall be grieved, and return in rage against the holy covenant, and do damage.”
The ships from Cyprus, I believe to be the US and her allies.
“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he (the Antichrist) corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many (Daniel 11:32-33).
The Holy covenant is the acknowledgment of the Jewish people’s right to Jerusalem through Abraham. It’s the Abrahamic covenant. These countries that the Antichrist “flatters” unanimously believe Jerusalem belongs to the Palestinians, not the Jewish people. Germany and France are supposed to be democratic countries yet see Israel as an aggressor, not as defending itself. They abstain at UN votes for new resolutions against Israel. It’s very easy to see how the Antichrist will have so many who join him. They believe the Palestinians have more of a right to Jerusalem than the Jews.
Surprisingly, Saudi Arabia has been viewed to be working more closely with Israel than any EU nation. When speaking about Netanyahu and the embassy move, European Union foreign policy czar Federica Mogherini recently said, “He can keep his expectations for others, because from the European Union member states’ side this move will not come.”
The EU has also defended the Obama/Iran deal. Israel has accused the EU of anti-Israel boycotts and bias, while the recent rise in populist leaders has warmed to Israel and the US, Hungary and Poland for starters.
Saudi Arabia recently decided to bar more than one and a half million Palestinian citizens of Israel from traveling on their Jordanian-issued passports. The Saudi government is refusing to allow them to perform the Islamic pilgrimages of Hajj and Umrah in Mecca. This is part of a bilateral agreement between Saudi Arabia and Israel to force Jordan to accept Palestinian refugees and to move along the peace process. The passport revocation also affects Libya. Libya is one of the countries that align against Israel. This move will anger many Muslims against Saudi Arabia and Israel.
This Saudi move will affect 2.94 million Palestinians living in Libya, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and East Jerusalem. This policy became effective on September 12, 2018. I strongly believe any peace deal will be between Jordan and Israel, with Jordan acting on behalf of the Palestinians. Taking away the pilgrimage to Mecca will anger many Palestinians. The majority of their anger will be placed at Israel. This places Israel and Jordan on a direct path to peace talks.
“And you, for your part, must make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land; you must tear down their altars.’ But you have not obeyed Me — look what you have done! (Judges 2:2).
After Netanyahu again called for a ceasefire with Hamas, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman resigned. The Defense Minister is the most powerful position in Israel after Prime Minister. This is a shocking resignation. Israel depends on the Defense Minister for protection and safety. These latest missile attacks were non-stop and deadly.
Lieberman is now calling for new snap elections. The Israeli government, the Knesset, has 120 total seats. Netanyahu holds 61; he cannot lose one seat. What does that mean for Israel? Lieberman is adamantly against a two-state solution and opposed to the peaceful route, while Netanyahu has showed support for a sharing arrangement and prefers peace. Could Trump’s peace plan have a proposal which ousts Abbas because he’s standing in the way of peace?
Netanyahu was carrying out secret negotiations with Egypt behind Lieberman’s back. Netanyahu had also cut Lieberman’s military charge. Netanyahu is in urgent need of a new Defense Minister, but could something more prophetic be happening? President Trump’s peace plan is about to be rolled out; and as I have said before, those in the region have grown tired of the Palestinian cause. With Abbas in power there will be no peace. With Lieberman out as Defense Minister, it opens Israel up further to brokering a peace deal.
Lieberman said, “We are buying short-term peace at the price of long-term national security.”
He has no idea how right he is truly is.
The leader of Hamas said, “The resignation of Lieberman is a recognition of defeat and helplessness in the face of the Palestinian resistance.”
Netanyahu, while speaking at a memorial service for Israel’s first leader, David Ben-Gurion, said “leadership is not doing the easy thing; it is doing the right thing.”
Netanyahu sounds like someone who is working towards the peace deal.
The Israeli people have grown tired of the Palestinians, especially Hamas. The Israelis have attempted peace negotiations with the Palestinians numerous times over the years. Two decades after the Oslo Accords, things are more dangerous than ever in Israel. Are we seeing the beginning stages of the false peace we were warned of?
On Tuesday, Ibrahim Kalin, a spokesman for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said in a statement that Israel must end its military activity in the Strip “immediately.” “Israel must immediately stop its attacks against the Gaza population,” Kalin said.
He also called on the international community to “take action” to force Israel to halt its ongoing air campaign against terrorists in the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli people are beginning to take to the streets in protest of the latest ceasefire. They are with Lieberman; they want the IDF to go to war.
Hundreds of people from Gaza border communities demonstrated in in Tel Aviv, shouting, “The residents of the South are saying: ‘enough!’” Even high school students in the South declared a school strike to join the demonstrations. One protester said, “I really want there to be peace and quiet on both sides. We will not give up, and we will not let the government neglect us,” she said.
But, it was reported the Israel Defense Forces didn’t see the Gazan challenge eye to eye with Lieberman. While the IDF has no doubt they could win in a war against Hamas, what happens to Gaza’s two million Palestinians who then become refugees? Which brings us back to Saudi Arabia revoking Jordanian-issued passports for religious pilgrimage.
The day after the resignation of Defense Minister Lieberman, the White House said there was no change in the administration’s intentions regarding the peace plan. It is expected to be revealed around the first of the year. Abbas has stopped all negotiating and talks with the US, and Israel is firmly standing in the way of any peace deal.
Last year, Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman threatened Abbas, stating that he will be ousted if he does not cooperate with the kingdom on pursuing peace with Israel. The Prince also urged him to back the U.S. peace plan. He told Abbas that “the U.S. is the only nation with real influence over Israel. It is the only country that can put pressure on Israel in any peace process; and no one else can do that, neither EU, nor Russia or China.”
The prince also threatened him with replacement if he does not pressure Palestinians living in Lebanon to support the peace process. He threatened to replace him with exiled Palestinian politician Mohammed Dahlan. Jerusalem is the ultimate goal for the Antichrist, and he’s going to use peace to grab hold of it, from within.
Prime Minister Netanyahu recently compared President Trump to King Cyrus. He said in regards to the embassy moving,
“I want to tell you that the Jewish people have a long memory, so we remember the proclamation of the great king, Cyrus the Great, the Persian king 2,500 years ago. He proclaimed that the Jewish exiles in Babylon could come back and rebuild our Temple in Jerusalem. We remember a hundred years ago, Lord Balfour, who issued the Balfour Proclamation that recognized the rights of the Jewish people in our ancestral homeland. We remember 70 years ago, President Harry S. Truman was the first leader to recognize the Jewish state. And we remember how a few weeks ago, President Donald J. Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Mr. President, this will be remembered by our people through the ages.
In Isaiah, God chose Cyrus before he was born “to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor… so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel.”
Isaiah 44:25-26 “Who frustrates the signs of the babblers, And drives diviners mad; Who turns wise men backward, And makes their knowledge foolishness; Who confirms the word of His servant, And performs the counsel of His messengers; Who says to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be inhabited,’ To the cities of Judah, ‘You shall be built,’ And I will raise up her waste places.”
Isaiah 44:28 “Who says of Cyrus, ‘He is My shepherd, And he shall perform all My pleasure, Saying to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be built,’ And to the temple, ‘Your foundation shall be laid.”
No other president has kept his word until President Trump, even though they have promised for decades to recognize Jerusalem and move the embassy. Obama all but shattered the US/Israeli relationship. On the other hand, the leaders from Europe looked up to him.
The one person that could possibly make or break a Trump peace plan proposal would be Erdogan. He firmly has the support of not only Hamas but The Muslim Brotherhood. Peace in Israel is almost impossible without Hamas on board. The Trump peace plan will interest even Erdogan. He is continuing to be seen as a rising Islamic leader that many support and even worship. If Erdogan supports it, nobody will care if Abbas doesn’t support it.
The peace plan will be an interim agreement that creates a Palestinian state within temporary borders. This new Palestinian state will most likely include much of the West Bank, which is biblical Judea and Samaria. The main issue is the Temple Mount. The Palestinians insist it be the capital of “Palestine.” Could that be something they will agree to work on in the future, for peace right now? Could Jerusalem be the capital of both Israel and “Palestine” for three and a half years?
President Trump’s plan could include a separate Palestinian state, major reconstruction of Palestinian areas, build infrastructure, and end the blockades. This would put Palestinians to work too. These are opening negotiations, a starting point for the Israelis and Palestinians. The Al Aqsa Mosque is built on the “outer court” that God said was set aside for the Gentiles. If Israel is given the green light to build their third temple, they may also be willing to give a little more than the Palestinians.
Isaiah 45:19 “I have raised him up in righteousness, And I will direct all his ways; He shall build My city And let My exiles go free, Not for price nor reward,’ Says the Lord of hosts.”
Salam Fayyad, former Palestinian prime minister, even offered a solution to the Jews currently living in Judea and Samaria. The Jews refusing to move could stay, living as a Jewish minority in the new Palestinian state. Fayyad argued that 1.6 million Arabs live in Israel under the Israeli government. Why couldn’t 150,000 Jews live under the new state of Palestine?
Biblically speaking, Jerusalem is the center of everything. With this false peace and a sharing arrangement, Jerusalem will be the center of government and worship for both Muslims and Jews.
But, the Antichrist will suddenly want ALL of Jerusalem, with no warning.
The Bible says the Palestinians in Judea and Samaria will unleash merciless slaughter against the Jews living there. It will be so sudden and severe that Jesus warned the Jews to immediately run for their lives and not to look back. He said if they were on their housetops to not even come down to get their clothes. He said, “For then will be great tribulation such as never has been before nor ever shall be.” Some of the Jews will escape, but many will die. Many will flee to Jordan, and Jordan will turn them away. The Bible says Jordan escapes from the Antichrist’s wrath, meaning they are not “allied” together. They escape his wrath because they will forsake the covenant and the sharing arrangement.
The world stage is being set. Israel is about to trade her security and safety for a false sense of peace. It’s only a matter of time before this deal is signed and the clock starts ticking. The return of Jesus is near; prophecy is unfolding daily in ways that were once unimaginable. The Bible tells us that we would begin to understand the mysteries and the sealed visions… Bible prophecy becomes clearer everyday. We can understand them because we are at the end.
Germany and Turkey both have recent empires which resulted in the deaths of millions. These two war machines together will be unstoppable.
2 Thess 2:4 “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
President Trump is just the man to put forth and negotiate a peace deal, and Erdogan is just the man to get the Jordanians and Palestinians to agree, tentatively, to that peace deal. Hamas will not declare peace with Israel because Abbas or President Trump says so. Hamas, on the other hand, will listen to Erdogan. If Erdogan can get Hamas and Jordan to share the Temple Mount peacefully, both Jews and non-Jews alike would begin to look at him as a Messiah figure.
Please read some of my other articles that describe exactly what they are both looking for in a Messiah.
Erdogan recently visited Angela Merkel in Germany and has toned down his rhetoric since the Trump sanctions. He is looking to start over with Germany. He said, “We want to completely leave behind all the problems and to create a warm environment between Turkey and Germany just like it used to be.”
Like it used to be? One brought us the Ottoman Empire and continued Islamic terror for centuries; the other brought us the Holy Roman Empire, World War One and World War Two. Adolph Hitler once stated, “Germany will either be a world power or will not be at all.” According to Bible prophecy, he was right.
Erdogan, behind the scenes, has a lot of say on any deal between the Palestinians and Israel. Turkey is the head of the OIC, 57 Islamic countries that look to him for leadership. He has been the most vocal Islamic voice when it comes to Israel and demanding a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital. When speaking to OIC members, he said, “We are determined to protect and preserve the historical status and sanctity of Jerusalem.”
President Mahmoud Abbas echoed Erdogan’s remarks to the OIC members: “We shall not accept any role for the United States in the peace process; they’ve proven their full bias in favor of Israel.”
The OIC was formed in 1969 following an arson attack on Jersulam’s al-Aqsa mosque, the third-holiest site in Islam.
The OIC calls for a two-state solution with East Jerusalem (Judea and Samaria) as the capital of a newly created Palestine. It is very plausible for the majority of Muslims to be happy with this coming peace proposal. And if Erdogan is for it, that means the vast majority of Muslims in the Middle East would be for it. Saudi Arabia and its immediate neighbors, besides Iran, have all signaled they will support a two- state solution with Jerusalem as the capital. Saudi Arabia has already said they will support President Trump’s peace plan.
The Jewish people want their third Temple rebuilt. The question is, what will they give up in order to get it?
It’s not a matter of if this will be signed; it’s a matter of when.
The last time Israel split into two kingdoms, they were attacked, killed and taken into exile. Netanyahu is about to split Israel into two kingdoms, only this time one of the kingdoms worships a false pagan god and is ruled by a warring pagan mentality.
After Solomon died, the tribes of Israel split from being united as one kingdom. David’s grandson Rehoboam, the house of David, ruled only Judah with its capital in Jerusalem. The Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem came in 586 BC.
How Israel behaves in the kingdom of Judah is related directly to the religious conduct of its leaders, David’s descendants. The kings who allowed worship of pagan, foreign gods brought on judgment. Manasseh’s idolatry is the main reason why Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians (2 Kings 21:10-15). On the other hand, when Jerusalem escapes Assyria’s march through Judah in 701 BC., King Hezekiah and his devotion and reverence to God are credited (2 Kings 19).
Israel desperately wants peace. And they are about to be allowed to rebuild their temple. The Jews in Judea and Samaria can stay in their homes; they will worship on the Temple Mount like their fathers, and they gain a false sense of safety and live in peace.
1 Kings 11:6 “Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and did not fully follow the Lord, as did his father David.”
Despite warnings from the prophets, both kingdoms have repeatedly turned from God. Assyria and Babylon both conquered the divided kingdoms.
“If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you this day… the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you are entering to take possession of it. But if your heart turns away… you shall not live long in the land which you are going over the Jordan to enter and possess” (Deut 30:16-18).
God has truly blessed Israel since 1948, and now they are going to turn from God’s instruction and split the kingdom into two nations once again. The Jews will worship on the same Temple Mount with Muslims, whose call to prayer blasphemes God and whose engravings on the al Aqsa mosque deny Jesus, claiming that Allah is the only god. The mosque loudspeakers carry the voice of Imams singing songs of blasphemy against Jesus Christ.
Israel has slowly turned from God and grown more secular, though they still follow in the traditions of their fathers. Jesus warned the Jews once before about caring more for tradition. He warned them about washing the outside of the cup and ignoring the inside. They have forgotten God, and for this, God will use the Assyrians to punish Israel for her infidelity once again.
The world stage is changing; new leaders are rising all over the world. The Globalist agenda has been interrupted by a nation created by God-fearing men with Judeo-Christian values. Under President Trump, the commitment to Israel has been renewed, at the anger of the rest of the world. The world was against the embassy move. The world is still against the embassy move.
“I will send him against an ungodly nation, And against the people of My wrath I will give him charge, To seize the spoil, to take the prey, And to tread them down like the mire of the streets” (Isaiah 10:6).
There is a time of trouble coming to Israel like never before. World War One and Two taught us one big lesson. Death and bloodshed are not only on the table, the history of these nations almost mandates it.
“Therefore I have delivered her into the hand of her lovers, into the hand of the Assyrians, for whom she lusted. They uncovered her nakedness, took away her sons and daughters, and slew her with the sword; She became a byword among women, for they had executed judgment on her” (Ezekiel 23:9-10).

Isaiah 45:1-7 “Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held— to subdue nations before him, and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut’:
“I will go before you, and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze, and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel. For Jacob My servant’s sake, And Israel My elect, I have even called you by your name; I have named you, though you have not known Me.
“I am the Lord, and there is no other; there is no God besides Me. I will gird you, though you have not known Me, that they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting that there is none besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other; I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the Lord, do all these things.’”
