Watch and Warn: Rapture, Then Much Tribulation; God’s Wrath Revealed in Revelation
“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors [Christ’s return to set up His kingdom on Earth]. Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done… And what I say unto you, I say unto all, Watch” (Mark 13:28-30, 37).
Carolinas: Two killed during severe weather outbreak in Charlotte, North Carolina area. At least two people died last Friday after a line of powerful storms ripped across the Charlotte area, bringing heavy rain, strong winds and possible tornadoes to the Carolinas.
Tropical Storm Bertha, the second named storm of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, which normally begins in June, triggered record heavy rains and severe flooding in Florida last weekend and into this week before affecting the Carolinas and weakening to a tropical depression. Then it spread more rain across already-soaked southwest Virginia, renewing the risk of flooding. One person drowned at Myrtle Beach, SC. There were warnings posted against swimming, and no lifeguards were on duty.
Western Australia: Extreme ‘once-in-a-decade’ storm brings destructive winds and rain May 24 and 25, caused by remnants of Ex-Tropical Cyclone Mangga that hit a cold front. “This is a rare event for WA, particularly due to the extent of the area affected.”
Central America: Severe flooding hits Nicaragua, life-threatening flash floods expected across Central America into this coming week.
Kenya: Floods kill 285, affect over 810,000. Floods have been pounding Kenya since April, and crop loss may lead to food insecurity.
Turkey: Storm batters eastern Turkey, snowfall, hail disrupts life. As temperatures plummeted throughout Turkey following a heat wave, a cold front with strong winds, snowfall and hail brought winter back. A shepherd died in the storm, as well as many sheep. Many crops were damaged as well. Looks like Ramadan’s month of fasting and prayer to Allah didn’t work.
Oman and Yemen: Budding depression in Arabian Sea may bring 2 years’ worth of rain to Salalah. Multiple tropical features will be monitored for development in the coming days. The more pressing area forecasters are focused on is located near the Arabian Peninsula. Meteorologists are monitoring an area of low pressure just north of Socotra, Yemen. “The heaviest rain will fall along the coast of Oman and the coast of Yemen. 380 mm (15 inches) is possible in this area including Salalah, Oman. This amount of rain would be about two years’ worth of rain for the city in just a few days.
India: Delhi records warmest May day since 2002 as North India becomes hottest region worldwide with temperatures hitting 46 °C (114.8 °F) on Tuesday.
Swarm of shallow earthquakes near Yellowstone National Park. Nearly a dozen earthquakes have shaken the area near Yellowstone National Park in the past 24 hours (as of Friday). Eleven earthquakes have been reported near West Yellowstone, Montana, in 24 hours, and 34 quakes have hit the same area in the past 30 days. The quakes are only three miles deep.
Massive tectonic plate under Indian Ocean slowly splitting apart. It’s slow but significant compared to other plate boundaries. Origins of the 2012 earthquakes were studied. That year, two extraordinary earthquakes greater than 8.0, caused by plate boundary events, occurred inside the India‐Australia‐Capricorn plate, slicing the seaﬂoor along old fracture zones, bearing evidence of active tectonic deformation.
New Zealand: A 5.8 earthquake struck near the capital Monday, shaking many residents. Although no damages were reported, it lasted over 30 seconds.
DAYS OF LOT REVISITATION
More indoctrination of the children into perversion. Disney’s Pixar’s animated film ‘Out’ brings tears and cheers, celebrating the studio’s first gay lead character. The 9-minute mini-movie tells the story of Greg who is moving in with his boyfriend Manuel. But Greg isn’t “out” to his parents and is shocked when they drop by for an unannounced visit. Fans flocked to social media to celebrate the inclusion.
ABORTION ABOMINATION: MURDER WITHOUT HESITATION
UN Should Stop Using COVID-19 As Excuse to Push Abortion. The acting administrator for the US agency for international development sent a letter to UN Sec. General Guterres, criticizing the UN’s decision to include abortion as an “essential service” during the pandemic.
Planned Parenthood Officials Admit Under Oath to Engaging In Business Transactions For Fetal Organs. Planned Parenthood lied to the public and Congress. There’s no longer any doubt that it sold fetal body parts, commodifying living children in the womb and treating pregnant women like a cash crop.
Shocking Worldview Stats: Next Generation to Fundamentally Change Our Nation. George Barna directs the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University and has interviewed tens of thousands of people. He asked what people believe and how they live out those beliefs. He found that people are reading the Bible more these days – and a new survey shows they need to! Only 6% of adults in the US have a “biblical worldview” — a shocker that has more Christians wondering, what on earth are parents and churches teaching? FYI to Barna: It’s already changed, and it’s obvious we’re at the end of the generation that will see the return of Christ (Matt 24; Luke 21; Luke 17:26-30; Joel 3:1-2; Ps. 90:10).
Elon Musk’s Girlfriend to ‘Sell Her Soul’ as Part of a Virtual Art Exhibit titled “Selling Out.” Claire Boucher is a Canadian singer known professionally as Grimes. She drew up a legal contract with her lawyer to ‘sell her soul’ to the highest bidder. Sounds like she’s already given her soul away to the father of lies. She and Musk just had a child together and named him X Æ A-12, whom they refer to as ‘little X.’ Poor child.
ISLAM’S UNHOLY CONFRONTATIONS
Islamic terrorist group ISIS scattered video game controllers set to explode at the push of a button in Yazidi homes as they were expelled from Iraq, a new film about the persecuted group shows.
Ramadan Rage: 2020 Logs 30% More Jihadist Attacks than 2019 Despite Coronavirus. Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year for Muslims. Their prophet Mohammed reportedly said, “When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of heaven are opened and the gates of hell are closed and the devils are chained.” If heaven is opened and hell is closed during Ramadan, then why is there so much violence from Islamic jihadis during that time of the year? You would think for something that bills itself as the ‘religion of peace’ there would be a little more peace. Or any peace at all, but the opposite seems to be true.
Dubai sheikh was to force his 11-year-old daughter to marry man 22 years her senior; UK court heard the case. The sheik of Dubai has a number of wives and lots of children. His ex-wife with their two children fled to the UK seeking asylum. The claim is that he was going to force his 11-year-old to marry a man 22 years her senior. He’s previously been accused of kidnapping his daughters; One tried to escape at 18 and was forcibly returned. No news has since been heard about her where she’s said to have been imprisoned and beaten. Years later her sister tried to escape but the crew of the yacht she was on was imprisoned and she was forced back to Dubai.
HATRED OF GOD’S CHOSEN NATION
Germany has recorded the highest number of anti-Semitic crimes nationwide since 2001 with Jewish leaders saying a new wave linked to coronavirus conspiracy theories is expected.
Iran’s president approves ban on use of all Israeli products. Anyone else who thinks they can stop using Israeli products is deluded. One would have to go back to the dark ages to do that.
CHRISTIANS FACE DISCRIMINATION
Up to now, some Ethiopian Jews have been able to make Aliyah to Israel due to political pressure, but Ethiopian Jews who converted to Christianity have been forbidden to make Aliyah. Many live in dire poverty, and Muslim extremist groups have ramped up their attacks against them in the last 20 years. Now, a plan calls for the Aliyah process for approved Ethiopian Jews to begin from Ethiopia, where they’ll receive Hebrew language instruction and professional training, and preparation for conversion [sadly, back to Judaism].
CONTAMINATION OF GOD’S CREATION
Genetic Code of The Planet Under Attack. IMPORTANT READ with associated links. Trust Bill Gates and Fauci’s NIH? If you do, you may want to rethink that.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness… For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:18-22).
TREACHEROUS DESTABILIZATION; POWER-MAD MANIPULATION
TikTok privacy invasion of children. Four U.S. senators urged the Federal Trade Commission to investigate allegations that the popular video app TikTok violated a consent decree protecting children’s privacy. They noted a report that Chinese-owned TikTok had failed to take down videos made by children under age 13 as it agreed under a 2019 consent agreement with the FTC.
Jim Hanson: Trump’s social media executive order is justified – protects free speech, combats censorship. President Trump was right to sign an executive order calling for new regulations to strip legal liability protections from social media companies that censor posts and engage in political conduct on their sites. Take Twitter, for example, that has selectively targeted conservatives and has either taken down their tweets or labeled them as misleading and added a fact check, as was the case with two of the president’s tweets dealing with problems with mail-in voting. Ironically, the president’s tweets saying voter fraud can take place with mail-in voting were accurate. Twitter’s fact check claiming that the president’s tweets were factually inaccurate was itself inaccurate. [It doesn’t seem that Trump’s action will have any real effect, however, in these days of acceleration into a totalitarian “Orwellian society” with much help from Satan].
Hypocritical Dem liberal women Me-Two’ers that ‘believe’ Tara Reade’s backed-up allegations of sexual assault will vote for Joe Biden anyway. Ilhan Omar was the latest hypocrite to say so. Yet they chose to believe (whether they actually did or not) the un-backed up allegations against Kavanaugh, who is a Republican. One hypocrite said she’d vote for Biden regardless, even if he boiled babies and ate them. Deceived shills of the father of lies will do anything to oust Trump and keep their ill-gotten gains.
From the Wall Street Journal, no less. The ‘Liberal Leaning’ Media Has Passed Its Tipping Point. By Van Gordon Sauter, former president of CBS News, no less. “Democrat Double Standards. Democrats learn the MeToo standard is impossible to sustain without hypocrisy.” About 35 years ago I was sitting at lunch next to Jeane Kirkpatrick, a onetime Democrat who became a foreign-policy adviser to President Reagan and later U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. She was lamenting what she called the “liberal-leaning media.” As the president of CBS News, I assured her it was only a “liberal tilt” and could be corrected. “You don’t understand,” she scolded. “It’s too late.”
Virginia Hypocrite Governor Northam Joins Holiday Weekend Revelers, No Mask, No Social Distancing. Northam, un-masked, stood among groups of people and posed for selfies. His lame excuse was, “I was not prepared because my mask was in the car.” Right afterward, he made it a law for Virginians to be required to wear face masks when in public indoor areas.
Mail-in Voting during the pandemic; a convenient setup for “mistakes.” In California, over 80 ballots found atop an apartment complex mailbox were all addressed to an 89-year-old widow, all with different names the resident who found them says he doesn’t recognize, from various nationalities. In a separate case, a woman said her husband, who came here illegally from Mexico 8 years ago, received a vote-by-mail ballot for Tuesday’s election. While he’s now petitioning the US for citizenship, he’s not a citizen yet, leaving him stumped about how he would receive an official ballot.
Kathy Griffin: Stabbing Trump with syringe containing ‘nothing but air inside’ would ‘do the trick.’ The liberal-left Democrat “spews media” and Hollywood “hellions” keep showing who their master is with their demonic rhetoric. Kathy Griffin made another threatening remark about President Trump. She responded to a tweet from CNN’s Jim Acosta asking whether Trump should be given an insulin regimen during a White House diabetes event. Griffin responded, “Syringe with nothing but air inside it would do the trick.” She added, “F*** TRUMP.”
If you’re a Democrat these days, you’re completely indoctrinated and deceived — a dangerous thing to be in these last of the last days before Christ’s return.
Some inmates released due to COVID-19 committed crimes including murder. This article provides links that back this up. Yet House Judiciary Committee Democrats are calling for release of more prisoners.
Total Chaos: Democrat-run Chicago Sees Deadliest Memorial Day Weekend in Years Despite Stay-At-Home Orders. The long warm weather weekend saw 49 people shot. Ten among these were killed. It’s part of a broader national rise in violent crime observed across three major US cities since the start of the year despite pandemic-induced local and state lockdowns. From Jan. 1 to May 24, Chicago had 200 homicides compared with 176 during the same period last year. Shootings climbed from 679 to 826. In Democrat-run Los Angeles and New York, the number of homicides has increased so far this year.
NATION AGAINST NATION
The Greek word for “nation” in the Bible is “ethnos,” meaning ethnic. The Hebrew word “goi” means the same. Part of the Communist agenda* to take down this nation is to pit so-called races against each other. What happened to George Floyd (police officer using the knee-to-neck tactic that is approved in Democrat-run Minneapolis* but widely discredited by other law enforcement agencies due to danger of suffocation) was appalling regardless of the fact that he’d resisted arrest after being suspected of trying to pass a counterfeit $20 bill at a grocery store. The offending officer and the three officers who stood by and watched were fired. The offending officer has since been charged with murder. Even after the president called for the FBI and Dept of Justice to investigate and it was obvious the world was outraged by what occurred, rioters ruined it by burning the city down and looting stores. Riots are taking place across the nation.
Minneapolis Riot Descends into Madness – Reports of Women Being Abducted, Random Cars Being Shot At. They’ve burned down a huge new building that was to be used for affordable housing. They’ve burned down small businesses run by minorities. They invaded a police precinct and burned it down. They’ve beaten police officers. They’re shooting at random cars, and there are reports of carjackings, women being kidnapped. A woman has been found dead in her car with evidence of trauma. As of this writing (Friday), at least 170 businesses had been damaged or destroyed in Minneapolis this week in leftist rioting.
Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson pointed out, “Black Lives Matter is a terrorist organization founded by radical lesbians, anarchists and Communists.” [The Antifa Communist groups are obviously involved as well.] One rioter interviewed on camera warned that rioters are planning on “coming to the suburbs” if they don’t get what they want.
NBC/MSNBC’s Alternate Reality. NBC News denies there are riots in Minneapolis. Craig Melvin, an MSNBC host and co-anchor of “Today,” tweeted on Thursday: @craigmelvin “This will guide our reporting in MN. ‘While the situation on the ground in Minneapolis is fluid, and there has been violence, it is most accurate at this time to describe what is happening there as “protests”–not riots.’” Another MSNBC reporter: “I want to be clear on how I characterize this. This is mostly a protest. It is not generally speaking unruly.” [He says this while literally standing in front of a burning building in the middle of a riot.] www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se_KMPWV0Ss
We can expect the Hollywood hellions, the Leftist Democrat leaders, and the media and press minions to blame Trump for the senseless death of George Floyd and the senseless violence that has ensued this week because of it, just like they blame him for literally anything that goes wrong anywhere. Taylor Swift just blamed Trump for advancing white supremacy. Bull. Where’s the evidence of that? There is none. The truth is Trump has done more to help the black community than Obama ever did or any Democrat Leaders who only use them for the votes. Speaking of the ‘divider in chief,’ Obama chimed in to fan the flames with his talk of racism. During his presidency, he did all he could to set race relations back 50-plus years.
It’s the Democrat Party leaders and other globalists who are trying to start a race war to take down this nation so they can turn it into their totalitarian system. But no one should blame all white people because of what some white people do, just like we shouldn’t blame all black people for what some blacks do.
*Minneapolis is a Democrat-run city, and a Democrat senator (Amy Klobuchar) who used to be in charge of prosecution for the city of Minneapolis when she served as Hennepin County attorney ignored ten previous complaints against the officer who caused the death of George Floyd.
PLAGUE AND PESTILENCE AMPLIFICATION
Famine risk for millions in second locust wave. A second wave of locusts in Africa and Asia is threatening famine for millions. They’re already swarming in East Africa and breeding in Iran, Pakistan and Yemen. The outbreak, raging since last year, has so far placed 20 million people at acute food insecurity in several African countries. Global air freight has been reduced significantly during the pandemic, causing delays in supplies of pesticides.
In India: locust attack spreads to 5 states, swarm splits into two. Five states in India are affected by the swarms moving at great speed. In Maharashtra, the swarm split into two groups after pesticide was sprayed. One group is moving towards Parseoni in Nagpur while the other entered Bhandara.
In Iran: worst locust plague in 50 years, recent attacks unprecedented and for the second year in a row.
PANDEMIC: EXAGGERATED LEGISLATION; SEQUESTRATION; OBSERVATION; INSTIGATION; DEPOPULATION; VACCINATION OF THE NATIONS
COVID-19 no longer infectious after 11 days, new study claims. Person-to-person transmission of COVID-19 is unlikely starting 11 days after infection, even if the patient still tests positive, according to a new study. The research paper from Singapore’s National Centre for Infectious Diseases and Academy of Medicine, based on a study of 73 COVID-19 patients, showed that isolating or culturing the virus after 11 days was not possible.
CDC Mortality Counts Show More Pneumonia Deaths Than Coronavirus Deaths While Worldometers and Media Reporting 20,000 More Deaths than CDC. What’s up with that? The overcounts by the media are similar to the overcounts as of April 25, 2020, when the CDC also reported 20,000 fewer deaths than the media.
CDC and WHO offer conflicting advice on masks. How many times are these so-called experts going to change their minds? Now the World Health Organization this week is recommending healthy people, including those who don’t exhibit COVID-19 symptoms, only wear masks when taking care of someone infected. The recommendation differs from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) new guidelines this week that urges individuals to wear a mask or face covering in public settings, regardless of infection, to limit the spread of the virus. One “expert” said the conflict is because if the WHO advises universal mask-wearing in countries where it’s impossible to adhere to that guidance, it could hurt the WHO’s reputation in those countries.
‘Power’ to ‘plunge a needle into your arm’: Dershowitz claims forced vaccinations are constitutional. Harvard professor and lawyer Alan Dershowitz claims forced vaccinations are constitutional. He says the public’s safety outweighs any private liberty concerns of citizens who don’t wish to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. He claims the government has the right to physically force you to take a vaccine or can decide to force you into quarantine if you won’t. He bases his claim on a community court case from a century ago that he shouldn’t even be using to compare to the coronavirus. Read the article “Dershowitz Wrong: Government Can’t Compel You to Take COVID-19 Vaccine.”
WHO suspends clinical trials of hydroxychloroquine as COVID-19 treatment. Yet they approve fast- tracking a vaccine that admittedly may not work and can even harm you.
Michigan’s Democrat Governor Whitmer, Like NY’s Cuomo, Requires COVID-19 Patients Allowed Back in Nursing Homes. Governor Gretchen Whitmer, whose stringent lockdown measures have been met with fevered backlash, has issued an executive order that mimic’s Cuomo’s nursing home requirements.
Software Developers Tear Apart Infamous Model That Started Lockdowns. If you don’t know what the Imperial College model is, you probably know the number: 2.2 million deaths. That’s what the mathematical model from the UK university predicted the US would face if politicians and people did absolutely nothing differently. This result was misinterpreted, often deliberately, to state we were on a collision course for that many deaths no matter what. That was never true. Now, computer programmers say the Imperial College model may not have been true in the first place, even if no lockdowns were ever put into place.
US Buys 300 Million Experimental Coronavirus Vaccines from Drug maker AstraZeneca. The US Dept of Health purchased nearly a third of the initial doses and agreed to pay up to $1.2 billion to fast-track AstraZeneca’s vaccine development, securing 300 million doses. Britain will also receive doses of the potential vaccine. AstraZeneca has been involved in scandals (see Wikipedia controversy section on AstraZeneca).
AstraZeneca says it may consider exposing vaccine trial participants to coronavirus. The chief executive of AstraZeneca, which is developing a leading coronavirus vaccine with Oxford University, said it’s too early to deliberately expose trial participants to the pathogen, but it may be an option if tests hit a snag. The British drugmaker last week started phase 2 and 3 trials of the vaccine, looking to recruit around 10,000 adults and children in Britain. A certain number of participants will have to become infected to achieve a reliable reading from the study over the next few months. Since when can children be considered “volunteer” participants?
CA Doctors Say They’ve Seen More Suicide Deaths Than COVID Deaths During Lockdown. Two weeks to flatten the curve has turned into two months of oppressive lockdown policies which are themselves killing Americans. In the San Francisco Bay area, suicides and attempts are increasing at an alarming rate. The trauma dept chief at John Muir Medical Center said doctors there have seen more deaths by suicide than from coronavirus. A trauma nurse with 33 years of service echoed his comments.
Salaries Get Chopped for Many Americans Who Manage to Keep Jobs. Hard numbers won’t be in for months, but evidence shows some companies have cut salaries at least temporarily in order to survive due to effects of the pandemic.
Fed finds new challenge for the economy: Workers who don’t want to come back to their jobs, citing safety concerns, child care issues and the generous unemployment benefits the government has been providing. Business leaders “were pessimistic about the potential pace of recovery,” the report said.
WARS AND RUMORS IMPLICATIONS
Both Russia and the Kings of the East Want to Rule the World
Trump Withdraws US from Open Skies Treaty that permits participating nations to conduct unarmed surveillance flights over one another after Russia allegedly violated its terms on multiple occasions. The treaty, signed by 35 nations in 2002, requires participating nations to make all of their territories available for surveillance. But Russia has excluded certain portions of its territory from being monitored.
Russia Building Stealth Bomber That May Carry ‘Invincible’ Hypersonic Nuclear Missiles. Russia’s Deputy Minister of Defense said the first engine test for the aircraft would be held sometime this year.
Russian Provocation of the US on the High Seas. Russian pilots intercepted a US Navy aircraft in an “unsafe and unprofessional manner” on Tuesday – third time in two months. All three incidents took place in international airspace over the eastern Mediterranean.
US growing concern about Russian and Chinese military buildup in the Arctic. Commander of US Naval Forces in Europe and Africa warned of Russia’s “aggressive approach in the Arctic.” Also, a US official said, “You would be alarmed at the amount of Chinese activity off the coast of Norway.”
US to take action against China over Hong Kong this week. China approved a security law on Thursday that would reduce Hong Kong’s separate legal status, calling into question the special economic status the territory currently enjoys under U.S. law. Hong Kong residents have again taken to the streets in protest of China’s plans to take away their freedom. Hundreds have been arrested.
China increasing provocation of India. With presence of over 5,000 Chinese troops, India has increased its troop strength to deter China’s Peoples’ Liberation troops.
Attack on Taiwan an option to stop independence, top China general says. China will attack Taiwan if there is no other way of stopping it from becoming independent, one of the country’s most senior generals said on Friday. China claims Taiwan as its own.
North Korea: Kim Jong Un vows to bolster nuclear ability. He and his minions also discussed bolstering its armed forces and putting strategic armed forces on a high alert operation, adopting measures for considerably increasing their firepower strike ability.
Islam Wants to Rule the World Too Along with Destroying Israel
Iran warns US: Wherever you are, we are right next to you. Amid tensions in the Gulf, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards warned the US against its naval presence in the region. Iran says it has 112 new speedboats to stalk US warships.
Terrorist group Hezbollah leader Runs His Mouth
Hezbollah’s Nasrallah warns of ‘great war’ on all fronts with Israel. Marking 20 years since Israel’s withdrawal from Lebanon, Hezbollah Secretary-General Nasrallah warned Israel of “the great war that will open all fronts at once,” saying it would be “the end of Israel.” The terrorist leader stressed, however, that there are “no indications that Israel intends to launch a war against Lebanon.” Nasrallah warned that any Israeli air strike on Lebanon would ‘not pass without a response,’ adding that the terror group has ‘military capabilities that did not exist before 2006.’
Terrorist group Hamas Ramps Up Attacks into Israel
Incendiary balloons into Israel from Gaza return, balloon units threaten more launches. The terror group demands medical supplies to fight COVID-19 after one death was reported in the Strip. How on earth should a terrorist regime that wants to destroy Israel demand Israel send it medical supplies? Hamas terrorist leaders get plenty of money from other nations, and use the money to further terrorism instead of helping their own people.
ISRAEL AND ANNEXATION; “PEACE” PLAN; PROBES AND PROVOCATION
July 1st – Countdown to Next Middle East War? On Monday, Netanyahu told a meeting of Likud’s Knesset faction that “the target date for beginning annexation is July 1, and we don’t intend to change it.” He added that “this is an opportunity that can’t be missed.” For such a long time the Middle East has seemingly been on the brink of war, and this could potentially be the trigger that finally pushes everyone over the edge.
Netanyahu: “Palestinians” in Jordan Valley won’t be Israeli citizens. He said they will remain in what he described as an “enclave” after Israel annexes the territory. He has vowed to press ahead with plans to annex the Jordan Valley and Jewish settlements in the West Bank, in line with President Trump’s Middle East plan, a process that could begin as early as July 1.
U.S. warns its nationals to avoid West Bank, Gaza amid annexation talks amid fears that annexation plans might spark a wave of violence. Many analysts speculate annexation could result in a violent “Palestinian” uprising.
Jordan’s Foreign Minister warns ‘Israeli annexation bid will have disastrous consequences.’ Ayman Safadi told UN Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov the Israeli plan to apply sovereignty to Judea and Samaria “will kill the two-state solution,” and he warns that the “world will not be able to remain silent in the face of [what he claims is ]institutionalized apartheid.” Safadi urged the international community to unite to halt the move and warned Mladenov of its potentially “disastrous consequences” on regional stability and security.
Turkey: We will not agree to annexation in Judea and Samaria. Turkey’s President Erdogan is warning Israel of the consequences, saying Turkey will not permit “Palestinian land” to be granted to anyone.
Dear Europe – the Israelis are not “your” Jews. From the article: “From time immemorial…the land, all of it, belongs to the Jews, verified over and over again from Balfour, to the League of Nations, to the San Remo Conference, back to The Kuzari and ultimately to the Hebrew Bible. It is written in parchment. It is written in stone. It is written in the DNA of every Jewish person, man, woman, and child.” To European Commissioners, the Vatican, and Democrats who claim Israel violates international law by annexing 30% of Judea and Samaria: God covenanted Israel to the Jews and says in the last days they’d be back in their land. God is going to bring the nations to Armageddon for judgment over treatment of Israel (Joel 3).
Quartet talks Israeli-‘Palestinian’ peace amid PA push to replace Trump plan. The ‘Palestinian’ Authority’s push to replace the US as sole broker for the Israeli-‘Palestinian’ peace process failed to yield immediate results as a Quartet video conference ended without conclusions. Quartet representatives discussed Israeli plans to annex parts of the West Bank, and the July 1 deadline for Israel to begin to apply such sovereignty.
The Quartet is made up of representatives from the US, EU, UN and Russia. And the UN, Russia and EU stand behind the PA’s call for a two-state resolution based on the pre-1967 lines. This US administration supports a ‘Palestinian’ state, but not along those lines. However, the US explained that the PA can engage with its peace process without agreeing to the plan as currently written. The PA can suggest “realistic edits, and meaningful compromises.”
World leaders have long involved themselves in Israel’s affairs, including US presidents. Some have good intentions; others have evil intentions. No matter; God says do not divide My land.
The above article reminds me of a line in the song, American Pie: “The Quartet practiced in the park while we sang dirges in the dark.” However, there are lots of reasons to sing funeral dirges, as darkness reigns over the earth these days. It’s too late to “mince words.” It will continue to get worse since it’s obvious to those who study Bible prophecy that we’re in the very last days before Christ’s return. But those of us in Christ have “The Blessed Hope” (Titus 2:13). We will be caught up to be with Jesus and escape the coming wrath.
RAPTURE FIRST, THEN TRIBULATION: GOD’S WRATH REVEALED IN REVELATION
“But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober” (1 Thessalonians 5:1-6).
“The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it…
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn” (Zechariah 12:1-3, 9-10).
