The hypocrisy against Israel

The Hypocrisy Against Israel and Why The U.S Stands With Her 

“In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God.”

Israel is in a fierce fight to protect its country and its citizens. There are thousands of Hamas-driven rioters on the Gaza border demanding entry. They are using children as political pawns, taking a page out of the Syrian opposition’s recent playbook. The Palestinians in Gaza launched Operation “Right of Return” several weeks ago in which tens of thousands of Palestinians have rioted, threatening to cross over. These rioters are minutes from residential homes. What the media doesn’t show you is you can see these homes from the border where the rioting is taking place.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently unveiled absolute proof that Iran has nuclear weapons and has had a nuclear program for years. The Israeli Special Forces, The “Mossad,” were able to retrieve 55,000 pages of documented Iranian nuclear plans. These documents were hidden in a dilapidated warehouse. Inside the warehouse were Iran’s top secrets regarding their nuclear program.

Iran is embarrassed. They are also nervous with the release of these documents proving how they are violating the nuclear agreement—a bogus agreement from the start despite claims from the former Obama administration officials and Obama himself.

God told us, “For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was anything kept secret, but that it should come into the open.”

As the IDF protects its border from this threat of invasion, the real human-rights crimes are going unreported. The media shows images of children being brought to the planned riots, but nobody questions why children are anywhere near the violence. The answer is obvious, and I’ve said it before. The death of one Palestinian child is worth all the dead children in the Middle East. Yasser Arafat would be so proud of the myth and lie he helped create—the Palestinian people.


One of the major claims from Palestinians is “we just want the pre-1967 borders.” Yet, when they had these borders prior to 1967, Israel was still under constant attack. There is no right to return to Israel for anyone but the Jewish people. Christianity has more of a claim to the holy land then the Palestinians. After all, they also have a PROVABLE 2,000-year presence in Jerusalem. Originally Jordanian, the Palestinian people were invented in the 1960’s by anti-Semites in an effort to once again delegitimize the Jewish people and their ancient homeland.


After the second temple’s destruction in 70 AD by Titus Flavius and the Roman 10th legion, the Jewish people that survived were taken from Israel and were enslaved. They built the massive coliseum in Rome, which was a house of horrors for Christians and Jews. Christian men, women and children were slaughtered by the thousands, all in the name of sport and to show Rome’s power and greatness.

The arch the Romans built, glorifying their defeat of the Jewish people, still stands today in Rome. It depicts fresco carvings and paintings showing that the Jews, all of their temple gold, golden menorahs etc., were dragged into Rome. A Roman coin from the period depicts a Jewish woman chained to a tree, weeping, with a Roman soldier standing before her.

Tens of thousands of Jewish men and women were massacred and thousands more enslaved. It historically happened, and it’s part of the Jewish people’s history. Their roots are in Israel. Israel does not belong to the Palestinians; it belongs to GOD, and He gave it to Jacob (named Israel) through His covenant with Abraham!

“Abram fell facedown, and God said to him, ‘As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations. No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations.’”

One of those nations is Israel. Israel is the apple of God’s eye. As these Muslim nations keep poking Israel, they are poking God in the eye. It’s not a smart thing to do.


“For thus hath the LORD of the hosts said; After the glory he shall send me unto the Gentiles which spoiled you, for he that touches you touches the apple of his eye.’”

There are an estimated 80,000 Iranian soldiers in Syria, and Israel is supposed to stand down and be OK with this. NO! Enough! Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu are a formidable force together. Donald Trump is not Obama – our relationship with Israel is once again strong!

Our alliance is unbreakable. Why? The United States was founded on the blood, sweat and tears of our founding fathers, who not only had a fear of God but submitted to God. Our founding fathers were Christian men. We worship the same God as the Jewish people: Jehovah; the Alpha and the Omega; the beginning and the end; the God that knows all things; the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

That is why our bond and alliance is so strong. God will bless those that bless Israel and curse those that curse Israel.

Our forefathers came here escaping religious persecution. This nation was founded on religious freedom. It defends liberty. It also does something else. The U.S defends Israel like no other. If the US, a PERMANENT member of the UN, didn’t veto the numerous accusations and resolutions against Israel, they may not even exist today. The UN certainly will not help Israel. The United States was created to spread and protect Christianity, to preach the gospel to the world, and I truly feel to protect the apple of God’s eye.

Iran is against the wall right now. They are afraid of President Trump. They know he is unpredictable. They know he says what he means and means what he says. When you have Iran against a wall, with Russia as an alliance, that’s not a good combo. They will retaliate soon, and Israel is in their line of site.  Are they going to strike Israel first? By Benjamin Netanyahu releasing, personally I might add, proof that the Iran deal was packed with deceit and lies, will this anger Iran and Russia to the point of starting a war? Attacking the apple of God’s eye?

Netanyahu also proved that Iran has indeed been building nuclear weapons, and well before Obama helped them out with cash. That cash helped them speed up their nuclear program and weapons-making capabilities. Iran’s main ally, Russia, has warned Israel against any further strikes on Syria, that they will strike Israel if their defense systems given to Syria are hit. All of the end-time countries we were warned of are lined up, ready to strike.

“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 this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths” (Zechariah 14:12, NKJV).

This can only be describing nuclear war. It’s on the horizon. The question again is, who will blink first? Who will strike first? We don’t know the timing, but we know it’s all happening right on Israel’s border, just as prophesied. It’s Easy to see a two-hundred-million-man army when you consider Recep Tayyip Erdogan calling for ALL Muslims to unite and invade Israel. Just as God said it would happen, it’s happening. Is it possible that Israel comes under such an attack and invasion that their only option is nuclear?

Israel’s nuclear arsenal is better known as the “Samson Option.” In Judges 16:28, Samson begged God to allow his strength to return to him one last time!  God granted Solomon his strength. With his renewed strength, Solomon destroyed the house of the Philistines. He not only killed himself but took 3,000 Philistines with him.

Israel’s Samson Option is a last resort if they are being overrun, and the Bible tells us they will be overrun. Israel is well-known to have a large nuclear arsenal. It’s estimated at around 400 nuclear warheads. This makes Israel the third largest nuclear power in the world, behind Russia and the U.S.

“Then Samson called to the LORD, Almighty LORD, please remember me! God, give me strength just one more time! Let me get even with the Philistines for at least one of my two eyes.”

When Israel chose the name “the Samson Option,” they were notifying the world that if they go down, all of their enemies who struck them will go down right with her. They will have nothing to lose if they use this Samson Option. Israel is surrounded by Muslims that want to kill them. They will rape the women and enslave them. They will murder the young boys and men.  Maybe the Samson Option is preferable to what has awaited so many at the hands of enraged Islamic men.

This coming persecution and slaughter is nothing new for the Jewish people, but it will be the worst persecution they’ve ever faced.

The Jews have been persecuted and slaughtered for thousands of years, their temple destroyed twice and the people enslaved or exiled. In the 8th century, Muslims forced Jews and Christians (people of the book) to wear identifying clothing. Jews wore a yellow belt or fringes on their clothing under Islamic law.

Then, a few years later, Jews were forced to wear a yellow patch in the shape of a donkey, and Christians had to wear a patch in the shape of swine. Beginning around the 12th century, under Holy Roman Byzantine rule, Jews were forced to identify themselves by a yellow star patch they had to wear on their breast. Adolf Hitler simply reintroduced branding of the Jews in the twentieth century; he reintroduced the yellow star.

The Spanish Inquisition was a terrible time for Christians, but it was no better for the Jews. The Inquisitions did not start in Spain; it was under the Roman Emperor Pope Innocent III where Jews were first burned alive. The mass slaughter of Christians then easily led to the slaughtering of the Jewish people—all done in the name of “religion.” In 1288, the first burning of Jews on the stake happened in France. In 1481, the Inquisition started in Spain.

In 1660, people across Europe suffered with what we know as the “Black death” or “bubonic plague.” The Jewish people were blamed for this. In reality though, the Jewish people by following God’s customs and laws were much cleaner, and this was why they were less likely to become sick. Simply washing hands (as we know today) helped prevent the spread of this disease. So their cleanliness is what spared so many, earning scorn and hatred.

Meanwhile, the Europeans’ water and sewage system in the Middle Ages wasn’t even as sophisticated as the Roman and Greek water systems a thousand years before. Sanitation was primitive. In Europe, the sewage disposal was in the middle of the street, which lead to the spread of the killer disease.

Adolf Hitler tried to systematically eliminate the Jewish people altogether, like so many antichrists through time before him. The holocaust lead to the slaughter of over six million Jews.

Throughout the centuries, the Jewish people were displaced all over. In 1948, the “remnants of the people” started returning to their homeland in droves and by the grace of God. No more “wandering,” looking for a home of their own. After Israel once again became a nation, it was also no longer a barren desert; it became a flower in the desert just as God said it would be.

“The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, Even with joy and singing.”

Mark Twain wrote the following about Jerusalem when traveling in 1867: “A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds… a silent mournful expanse…. a desolation…. we never saw a human being on the whole route…. hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted the country.”

He also did not take note of this mythical “Palestinian” people. Remember, Israel’s name was changed by a Roman Emperor, Hadrian, to disconnect the Jews that did return. (More about that here:

It was the Jewish people that made Israel bloom, by God’s hand—nobody else. Fulfilling prophecy!

There is a time of trouble coming to Israel. Jesus told us this was going to be a time of trouble and persecution that this world has never seen. BUT Israel will be saved by God.

Jeremiah tells us, “Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.”

Jesus tells us the tribulation will be a terrible time. God will destroy the nations that attack Israel.

“Though I completely destroy all the nations among which I scatter you [Israel], I will not completely destroy you. I will discipline you but only with justice; I will not let you go entirely unpunished.”

The Jewish people broke God’s covenant. They were without a homeland for 1,900 years. They were persecuted, mocked and scorned from Nebuchadnezzar to Hitler. After Hitler, we heard “never again,” but anti-Semitism is once again on the rise. The persecution coming will cause the Jewish people to cry out to God, and He will hear them – saving them and restoring them into His everlasting covenant.

“Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah—not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord.”

God will make a new covenant with the Jewish people, through His son Jesus Christ. The old covenant was written on stone and easily broken. The new covenant is written in our hearts. God will not only remove the hardening but give them new hearts. The Holy Spirit will dwell in them, and they will no longer cry out for their temple but cry out in praise of Jesus.

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.”

This new everlasting covenant is through the shed blood of Jesus. When Jesus was here, he instructed the disciples to go and share His message, first to the Jew, then the Gentile. When the Jewish people rejected the Messiah, God sent His message to the Gentiles. But He did not forget the Jewish people. He did not forget His covenant with Abraham.

“Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either.”

Has the hardening of the Jewish people’s hearts against Jesus started to soften? God has not abandoned the Jewish people but has kept His promises to bring Israel back to its land in the last days. God does not break covenants. And soon all of Israel will know who the Messiah truly is. In the last century, there have been thousands of Jewish people converting to Christianity. Their eyes are being uncovered and their hearts unhardened.

“I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in, and in this way all Israel will be saved” (Romans 11:25-26).

With this un-hardening of the heart also comes great tribulation. “It will come about in all the land,’ declares the Lord, ‘that two parts in it will be cut off and perish; but the third will be left in it. And I will bring the third part through the fire, refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested.

We are living on borrowed time. People have been saying “the end is near” for almost 2,000 years, but we are actually living in the last generation. Jesus told us specifically what the signs of His coming would be. Those signs are becoming clearer every day. Israel needs the United States right now like no other time in the last 70 years. Thank God we have a president that once again protects Israel and her people.

As Christians we are to spread Jesus Christ’s message; this includes to the Jewish people! In the last days, Christians are needed more than ever. Israel needs your support more than ever. We must not get comfortable and not vote in November. Israel was pushed out and left on her own under the Democratic Party. Don’t let them poke God in the eye again!

As we get closer to the return of the Messiah, things will get worse. The Jewish people are not the only people that will face persecution. The persecution against Christians has started, but it’s only going to get worse. There is comfort in God’s word though.

“Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

The spirit is indeed willing to stand for Jesus and proclaim His name, but our flesh is weak in that we will fear our fate whether it’s mockery, ridicule or scorn. In other parts of the world it’s death! Spiritually we are ready without question or fear. Physically, In the face of persecution or death, we must stand firm, we must be strong in our faith. Never deny Him. If you deny Him before men, He will deny you before His Father. This life is nothing compared to what He has in store for you!

“But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.”

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

Jesus prayed to God for strength when He was in the garden. He feared what His flesh was going to experience. His spirit was willing to do whatever God told him. He asked God if it was possible to let this pass. THEN HE DID GOD’S WILL. HE LISTENED TO GOD.

“And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, saying, ‘Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.’ Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.”

He willingly was led to the cross like a lamb being led to slaughter. FOR YOU. He died for our sins. Don’t let your flesh decide your spiritual fate; let the Holy Spirit within you lead you. Jesus came in the flesh, God’s word made flesh as an example of how we are to live.  Don’t live for the world; live for God. He came to divide, like a harvester divides the good wheat from the bad. So will Jesus separate us, the good from the bad. Which side do you want to be on?

“But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”

Destruction of Damascus & the Coming Invasion

Destruction of Damascus and the Coming Islamic Invasion of Israel 

In part one of this series, I wrote about the coming Psalm 83 war – Edom (Palestinians/Jordanians) attacking His brother Jacob (Israel). This will no doubt leave the rest of the Muslim world enraged. I believe the destruction of Damascus will be very close to the Psalm 83 war prophesied. As the Edomites come closer to entering Jerusalem, Erdogan comes closer to entering Damascus, with Iraq in his sight. This is part two of my series, the destruction of Damascus and the coming Ezekiel 38 war.

Damascus is the world’s oldest continually inhabited city in the world. The Bible says Damascus will be destroyed overnight. Since this has never happened, we know it’s a prophetic future event. There has been a war raging in Syria for 7 years, and yet the city of Damascus has gone relatively unscathed. Assad still runs his government from Damascus.

Isaiah 17:1-3 “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken; They will be for flocks which lie down, and no one will make them afraid. The fortress also will cease from Ephraim, the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria; They will be as the glory of the children of Israel,’ says the Lord of hosts.”

Damascus was one of the first cities to receive Christianity during the ministry of Apostle Paul. There were more Christians in Damascus than anywhere else in the world at the time of the apostles. It was on the road to Damascus that Paul was blinded by Jesus.  He saw and heard Jesus ask him why he was persecuting Him.

Paul, who was Saul before his conversion, was a fierce persecutor of Christians. He also approved the first stoning of a Christian, Steven, whom the apostles appointed as a deacon in the early church.

Acts 7:57:58 “…they all rushed at him (Stephen), dragged him out of the city, and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul….”  And Saul was there, giving approval to his death.

After this event, Saul began his persecution. Saul began to seek out Christians from house to house, dragging off men and women to put them in prison.

Who does this today – drags Christians from their homes to imprison or kill them? Muslims. Saul was no different than a Muslim who persecutes Christians today, until he was blinded and truly able to see by the Messiah Himself. Saul, like Muslims, took up the sword to punish Christians. So it’s not hard to see Jewish men in the first century having a fierce hatred towards Christians. The Jews felt that the Christians were blaspheming their God by claiming Him as the Christians’ God, not only for the Jewish people but salvation for the Gentiles.

Acts 22:4-5 “I persecuted the followers of this Way to their death, arresting both men and women and throwing them into prison, as also the high priest and all the Council can testify. I even obtained letters from them to their brothers in Damascus, and went there to bring these people as prisoners to Jerusalem to be punished.”

Saul’s persecutions led to the death of Christian men and women living in and near Jerusalem. His hatred was fierce. While these men and women were imprisoned, he went through their letters and found other Christians living in Damascus. So he decided to set out. But something happened. God chose Saul, the persecutor of His people, to spread His Word. Jesus came to him, asking why he was persecuting Him. Saul’s conversion began.

He was blinded, but then he was truly able to see when he reached Damascus. When God removed his blindness, He removed his hardened heart. His hatred for Christians left with his blindness. The fierce hunter of Christians became a fierce warrior for Christ. The hunter also soon became the hunted. Saul was now Paul, fearless in the eyes of all men in his pursuit to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Acts 9:20-22 “At once he (Paul of Tarsus) began to preach in the synagogues that Jesus is the Son of God. All those who heard him were astonished and asked, ‘Isn’t he the man who raised havoc in Jerusalem among those who call on this name? And hasn’t he come here to take them as prisoners to the chief priests?’ Yet Saul grew more and more powerful and baffled the Jews living in Damascus by proving that Jesus is the Christ.”

The Jewish people could not understand this. A Jew that hunted Christians is now telling them he is a Christian?

Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus changed the course of human history. Paul was both Roman and Jewish. God chose him to begin teaching salvation through Jesus Christ to all men, Gentile and Jew. Much of what Paul wrote in the New Testament is believed to have been written while he was imprisoned. About 25% of the NT is written by Paul. It was through Paul that the Gentiles were first hearing the gospel, and it was Paul that admonished the other apostles for not including the Gentiles in all things Christ.

The Christian roots of Damascus have long been forgotten. Unlike today, where people question the very existence of Jesus, the disciples weren’t trying to prove the existence of Jesus; they were proving the divinity of Jesus. They were proving He was the Messiah, the living Son of God. There was no question He existed and no question He changed the world. It wasn’t until the last couple of centuries that His existence really started to be questioned.

Syria played a vital role in the spread of Christianity. Today, it plays a vital role in terrorism. Today, there are many “Saul’s” persecuting Christians.

Eastern Ghouta, a suburb of Damascus, has been under siege and held by the rebel forces since 2011, until this month. The Syrian army recently defeated the rebels and took Eastern Ghouta back. This is the first time Assad’s army has controlled Eastern Ghouta in six years.

Two weeks ago there was a chemical weapons attack that allegedly killed several dozen, including children. The question is why and who? Why would Assad, who just had a decisive victory, use chemical weapons? It doesn’t add up, I’m afraid.

The US, France and Britain strike on the chemical facilities in Syria, I’m willing to bet, is the spark that will lead to the destruction of Damascus and World War 3.

This gives Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan all the more reason to march towards Damascus in the name of rooting out terrorists. The rebels have been unable to seize Damascus and have just lost Eastern Ghouta. The Turkish military under Erdogan won’t be so easy to beat. Erdogan has his eyes on Israel. He has been very vocal about this, but is still a member of NATO.  This leads me to believe this is why the other nations will suddenly stop and ask, wait, where are you going? He is going to Israel.

Ezekiel 38:13 “Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all its villages, shall say unto you, Have you come to take plunder? have you gathered your company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?”

Sheba and Dedan are in Saudi Arabia. Tarshish is believed by many to be Western Europe (think Brexit!), and the young lions I believe to be the United States. The U.S. has protected Israel and will continue to protect Israel and her interests. Surprisingly, Saudi Arabia is allied with Israel, just as prophesied.

The nations with the most hatred against Israel are now fully engaged in Syria. If the world was a Risk board-game, we would see one giant buildup in Syria from every nation in the world. Recep Tayyip Erdogan is leading the anti-Israeli rhetoric.

After recent remarks by Erdogan about marching to Jerusalem and accusing Israel of murdering Palestinian children, Benjamin Netanyahu replied, “I am not used to receiving lectures about morality from a leader who bombs Kurdish villagers in his native Turkey, who jails journalists, who helps Iran get around international sanctions, and who helps terrorists, including in Gaza, kill innocent people.”

“That is not the man who is going to lecture us,” he added.

Erdogan is reviving the Ottoman Empire. He is threatening Israel. And his invasion of Syria has also put Iraq on his radar. The Gog Magog war will be led by Turkey.

Magog was the son of Japheth, who was the son of Noah. After Noah’s flood, Magog and his brothers settled in modern-day Turkey, not Russia.  Gog is simply the name of the land that Magog settled. The name is in the genealogies of Genesis 10:1-3 and 1 Chron. 1:5-6.

In Bible prophecy, Magog represents the leader of Turkey.

When Assyria attacked Israel, there were two separate kingdoms within Israel. Northern Israel was headquartered in Samaria, and southern Israel, or Judah, in Jerusalem. The proposed peace plans have all included two separate “kingdoms” – a “two-state” solution. The last time Israel was divided within itself, the Jewish people were invaded, slaughtered and carried off into slavery by the “Assyrians.”  Israel is going to divide again, in the name of peace, and the “Assyrian” has just invaded Syria again. Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Assyria included parts of Northern Iraq, northeastern Syria, southeastern Turkey and northwestern Iran. Erdogan is gaining power and is planning his united “Islamic army” to invade Israel. Not only are we seeing the nations of the Ezekiel 38 war starting to build up all over Syria, the Psalm 83 nations are amassing on the Israeli border in what they are calling “the right of return.” May 15 is approaching, and the riots on the Gaza border are getting more violent. Will the 70th anniversary of Israel’s rebirth be the beginning of Daniels 70thweek?

If the inner circle of nations do indeed invade Israel’s border fence, there will be a massive response from Israel. The world doesn’t seem to care what is happening in Syria. The U.N. doesn’t care how many children die in Syria. One Palestinian death, Hamas related or not, is worth more to the international community than all of the dead children in Syria.

I strongly believe the Psalm 83 war will precede the Ezekiel war. The destruction of Damascus may very well happen in the coming days. Whatever peace covenant Israel makes will be canceled.

Isaiah 28:14-16, 18 “Therefore, hear the word of the LORD, O scoffers, who rule this people who are in Jerusalem, because you have said, ‘We have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol we have made a pact. The overwhelming scourge will not reach us when it passes by, for we have made falsehood our refuge and we have concealed ourselves with deception.’

“Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, ‘Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, a costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed… Your covenant with death will be canceled, and your pact with Sheol will not stand; When the overwhelming scourge passes through, then you become its trampling.”

I believe the Psalm 83 war is what brings a false, temporary peace to Israel. It will halt Erdogan now, but this simply gives him more time to acquire his Islamic army from many nations, as mentioned in the Bible. Israel being victorious will enrage much of the Muslim world.

Ezekiel 38:11 says Israel will feel secure and be living in safety when they are attacked by this coalition. This cannot be said right now. In EZEKIEL 38:13 is where the other nations will question the true motives. The Palestinian motives are already known.

In Ezekiel 39:9, Israel (IDF) is clearly victorious because they will burn their enemies’ weapons for seven years as energy and fuel. If this was Armageddon, then you have to explain why they would burn these weapons for energy and fuel when God’s presence, in all His glory, is what illuminates the new Holy City. Ezekiel 39:9 is a reference to nuclear energy Israel will use as their own. Are these seven years the same as the tribulation’s seven years? The first half is safety and peace, and the second half brings destruction.

1 Thess. 5:3 “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.”

Turkish President Erdogan, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani met together this month over Syria. The pope has met with all three. Why is a religious leader meeting privately with world leaders that call for the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people?  These are not average world leaders. These are the strongest military forces in the region. Two are anti-Christianity, Iran and Turkey, as they both deny Jesus Christ and imprison Christians!

These wars are going to be something we haven’t seen in our lifetime. What better time is there for a one-world religion than after two massive “religious” wars? To bring all religions and nations together in order to prevent another slaughter in the Holy Land.

Ezekiel 39:11-12 says that the dead will be buried over a period of seven months. There would be no need to bury the dead if this war is what brings Jesus Christ’s Second Coming.

Immediately after Satan’s final rebellion, talked about in Revelation, is the Great White Throne of judgment (20:11-15)

I believe the Psalm 83 war will bring in the signing of a peace deal between Israel, Erdogan and an Islamic coalition. Who better to help negotiate a religion of peace than the pope? The signing of the peace deal will begin the seven-year tribulation.

After the Psalm 83 war and the peace treaty, Israel will remain a sovereign state, but they will feel safe. For a time. It’s during the time of safety that the temple will be rebuilt. Jews do not believe their Messiah can come without this temple. It’s hard to picture the Palestinians letting them build this temple peacefully. But for three and one half years they will have peace.

During this time Erdogan and surrounding nations will continue to plot against Israel.

There is one nation Jesus said held the seat of Satan, and that is Turkey. Psalm 83 must happen first because, during the Ezekiel invasion, Israel will be living securely. Right now, they are anything but secure.

Revelation 2:13 “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is….”

An interesting note is there’s no mention of Satan in Ezekiel 38-39, but he is in Revelation. Satan has used many kingdoms and kings throughout history to slaughter the Jews and Christians and to take the Holy Land.

The names may have changed but the people and places are the same. Antioch is where the first Gentile Church was built. The evidence for Christianity throughout Syria is evident. Syria was an important and vital country for the spread of Christianity in the first century.

During the Ottoman Empire, Christians were plundered and then killed or forced to convert. Once a major hub for trade, Damascus has indeed grown feeble.

Jeremiah 49:24 “Damascus has grown feeble; She turns to flee, and fear has seized her. Anguish and sorrows have taken her like a woman in labor.”

My understanding of God’s word is that Damascus’ falling and Psalm 83 will happen relatively close together in time.

Ezekiel 35:10:11 “Because you have said, ‘These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess them,’ although the LORD was there, ‘therefore, as I live,’ says the Lord GOD, ‘I will do according to your anger and according to the envy which you showed in your hatred against them; and I will make Myself known among them when I judge you.’”

Israel being victorious over Jordan and the Palestinians will enrage the Muslim world; they are going to want blood and swift revenge. They will begin their plotting and planning, and then something happens. Pope Francis possibly steps in performing miracles and merges all religions. But the Muslims won’t do that, you say? The similarities between Islam and Catholicism are astounding. I have outlined these similarities in previous articles. These two religions make up almost 3 billion people worldwide. After the massive loss of life in Israel and Jordan, the people will beg for peace.

Daniel 9:27 “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.”

Could it be that the pope will help broker this peace treaty? The pope is certainly shocking his fellow Catholics with the blasphemous things that he says, such as atheists can go to heaven without belief. This is not true, and they are being condemned to hell, by God, through a major religious leader’s words. I have a hard time accepting that Christians and Jews will bow down to Erdogan as God. I can see weak Christians and the Jewish people waiting for their messiah, believing in a false messiah though

The false prophet and Antichrist will begin the worst persecution of Christians and Jews that the world has ever experienced. Christians throughout Africa, Asia and the Middle East have been under a systematic Islamic genocide since the start of the Syrian war. As the world watches Syria, Nigeria has been slaughtering Christians by the thousands and demolishing villages.

Matthew 24:21 “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.”

Pope Francis has slowly been delegitimizing the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. He is now denying the existence of hell. Pope Francis called Jesus Christ a failure, yet we know He is victorious.

One end-time Islamic teaching is that Jesus will return and will declare himself a Muslim. I can easily see the pope claiming to be a Muslim. They also believe all other religions will be destroyed. Crosses will all be destroyed. The Muslim messiah will pursue the Islamic “Antichrist” into Israel to defeat him. They believe a “great” beast will rise that calls the world to worship Allah. Their messiah (Mahdi) is our Antichrist; our Antichrist is their Messiah.

We don’t know exactly how things are going to unfold, but we know these things will happen. Since the moment President Trump announced the embassy move, prophecy has spiraled towards World War 3. As Christians, we know these things must take place before the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior. As Christians, we see the signs; we know Jacob’s trouble is near. Stay strong and faithful in God’s word. Be like Paul—a fearless warrior for Christ!

Matthew 24:4-9 “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”


Who are the Palestinians, really?

The Palestinian People

“He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon” (Daniel 11:41).

Where are these ancient, biblical countries that God speaks of? Edom, Moab and Ammon are all in modern-day Jordan. Why would these cities be safe from the coming Muslim invasion? Jordan is a Muslim country that supports the PLO and an independent Palestinian state. They also have a vast amount of control over the Temple Mount. God warns us of a coming invasion into Jerusalem, but He also tells us specifically that these cities shall escape. Now we know why.

Before Islam was even created, God forewarned us of this occultic religion of Islam. How could John, banished to Patmos, see into the future to tell us that not only will Israel be surrounded by Muslims, but these Muslim countries shall escape the coming devastation? Why will they escape? Because they will participate in the coming invasion and help slaughter Jews where they find them.

Who are the Palestinian people? Are they these ancient people that have inhabited Israel for thousands of years? These poor, destitute and persecuted people that have had their land stolen from them? Let’s examine that for a moment.

We know historically that the land was indeed named Israel. God changed Jacob’s name to Israel, which literally means to “struggle with God.”

Israel has indeed struggled and continues to struggle today. So where did the name Palestine come from?

The holy Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD by Emperor Vespasian at the hands of his son, Titus. The political climate in Jerusalem in 70 AD was just as it was four decades earlier when Christ walked the earth. Look at the political climate in the United States today and it’s very easy to see how Jesus could be betrayed and handed over to His opposition.

Famous first-century historian, Josephus, who was present for the temple destruction, said that afterwards you could stand in the middle of Jerusalem and not know where you were. The Romans had cut down every tree for 10 miles around the city. It was utterly destroyed. Before the Roman destruction, the temple was undoubtedly one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Historian Josephus also tells us, “He who has not seen the temple of Herod has never seen beauty.” The gold around the temple made you look away at certain times of day. It was magnificent.

Mark 13:1 says, “Then as He went out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, Teacher, see what manner of stones and buildings are here!”

The disciple saw the splendor, the gold, and the beauty. But Jesus replied, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone shall be left upon another that shall not be thrown down” (Mark 13:2).

Almost four decades later, after His crucifixion and resurrection, the entire city was destroyed. The temple was destroyed—not a rock left standing. Roman soldiers pried the stones apart to get melted gold. They then took those they didn’t kill to turn them into slaves and used them to build their Coliseum, among other things – the future Coliseum where so many Christians lost their lives. There is a Roman coin depicting this very destruction. Rome suddenly turned it’s fury on all things Christian.

Why did people hate these new followers of Jesus? Decades after He was crucified, those who spread His message or just believed were killed in massive numbers. If this man Jesus had been crucified and simply was never heard of again, would the first followers have been so adamant about their newfound religion? Would a book written by mere men with no inspiration from God Himself have survived 2,000 years?

The first Christians were truly put to the test. They were not simply told they can’t say “Merry Christmas.” They were thrown to starving lions, burned alive, and torn limb from limb. All in the name of Christ, literally. They spread their message all over what is commonly known today as the Middle East. Many of the first churches were set up in modern-day Turkey, which the Ottoman Empire destroyed.

Peter and Paul survived and spread Christ’s message the longest. From historical records it appears both were killed under Emperor Nero. Paul had been arrested on previous occasions, and his Roman citizenship granted him the fairness of a hearing and ultimate release. A fire broke out in the city and immediately Christians were blamed. It is said that Rome burned as Nero played his fiddle, and that Christians were dipped in pitch and set ablaze to light his gardens. What hatred! What contempt!

Revelations 12:17 says, “And the dragon was enraged with the woman [Israel], and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” Christians ARE the offspring.

Thus, the new religion of Christians, who proclaimed without a hint of shame that Jesus was indeed God, was spreading and spreading fast. Rome was not happy. For a King or governor or emperor to hear that this man Jesus was the King of Kings angered many in power. To put it in perspective: Kings, queens, emperor’s etc., killed their own bloodline off to make sure nobody could make a claim to the throne. Then you have these Christians who are spreading in numbers; and they refuse to worship or bow down to the many Roman gods, and even the emperors of the time.

That act alone upset many Romans. Not only were they hated by the Romans but they were hated by the Jewish people, who still feel it is blasphemy to claim Jesus is God’s Son and the Messiah. The very first martyr for Jesus was Stephen, and his sin was “transgression of faith” from Judaism. The first Christians were thrown into coliseums for refusing to renounce Christ and acknowledge the numerous Roman gods. They refused to worship any man above the Lamb of God—The King of Kings.

Nero was emperor for a short time, but his hatred for Christians and his murder of two of Christ’s disciples, Peter and Paul, has made him unforgettable throughout time. Fast forward 49 years to 117 AD and that brings you to Emperor Hadrian and where Palestine comes from. Not only did Hadrian hate Christians, but he hated the Jew as well.

In 130 AD, Hadrian visited Jerusalem. Jerusalem was still in ruins from its destruction in 70 AD. Hadrian rebuilt the city and named it Aelia Capitolina. Though the temple had been destroyed and the city completely destroyed other than the Roman fortress, Jews did start coming back. And for those that started to go back to Israel, what did their journey bring them? What must they have seen when they arrived? No temple. It was gone.

Hadrian then erected a temple built to the god, Jupiter, on the exact spot where the Jewish holy temple stood less than 50 years before. There was a massive revolt which ended with over half a million Jews being killed and 1,000 Israeli towns destroyed.

The ancient Philistines were ancient Israel’s enemy. They warred for hundreds of years. In fact Goliath was a Philistine. They were people that lived just southwest of Israel near the Jordan River. They were warmongers and a murderous people. God spoke many times of the Philistines. Archaeologists can find no trace of the Philistine people. Perhaps this is why in Zechariah 2:5 God finally judges the Philistines, and they no longer are a relevant people in history.

So then, what better way to punish and utterly decimate an entire race of people, and not only the people but their history, heritage and ultimately their God? There were no longer Philistines at the time of Hadrian’s rule. Changing the name of Israel to Palestine was a way to disconnect the Jews from their holy land and rename their beloved Israel after their sworn enemies.

Over a half million Jews were slaughtered between 132-136 BC, which is known as the Bar Kokhba Revolt. Hadrian ordered public burnings of the Torah and prohibited any observance of Judaism. Is it any wonder the name Jacob, where Israel gets her name, means to struggle with God? Israel has always struggled. Israel’s offspring has always struggled and will continue to struggle until Christ’s return.

Satan has been attacking and trying to destroy Israel’s offspring (Christians) since Christ’s crucifixion. His crucifixion wasn’t a defeat; it was a victory and Satan knew it. So he has set out to destroy us for 2,000 years.

He worked through Herod to destroy Jesus and failed. Jesus was victorious on the cross, so His followers have taken the punishment for His victory. By destroying us, Satan thinks he destroys Him. For 2,000 years he has tried through many different world powers, including Nebuchadnezzar, to destroy the Jewish people. But, Christians are hated even more. Don’t we represent Christ’s victory on the cross?

There are three main religions in the world: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Judaism was created over 3,500 years ago and Christianity was founded over 2,000 years ago, with both religions continuing to grow and thrive since their foundation. Both religions can absolutely trace their history and origins to not only the land of Israel, but to Jerusalem. Although most Jews deny that Jesus is the Messiah and the Son of God, they do not, however, deny that Jesus was Jewish and that he was born of a Jewish mother and went to synagogue and studied Torah.

Almost 3,000 years after Judaism began and over 600 years after Christianity began, Islam was born. Islam was created by a man named Muhammad who claimed he had a vision from a holy spirit he thought was Gabriel. Muhammad, while in these trance-like states, would have seizures and foam at the mouth.

Through these visions he had, he created a new religion called Islam. In doing so, Gods promise to Abraham, Hagar and Ishmael was fulfilled. Ishmael’s offspring has indeed become as numerous as the stars. Muhammad spread his new religion by way of the sword, just the opposite of how Jesus spread His message. Islam, under Ottoman rule, conquered Jerusalem in 1517 and took it as its own.

What the Muslims and the world fail to realize or refuse to admit is that, in 1312 BC, Israel became a nation. They have a 3,300 year proven history in Jerusalem—two thousand years before Islam was ever created. King David created the city of Jerusalem, while Muhammad never once visited.

In 1541 the Muslims sealed off the Golden Gate in Jerusalem, because prophecy foretold that the Messiah would enter through that gate. And Suleiman, the Ottoman leader, wanted to prevent Jesus from entering and fulfilling prophecy. What they failed to realize is Jesus already entered that gate, and Ezekiel prophesied that the gate would in fact be sealed.

Ezekiel 44:1-3 “Then He brought me back to the outer gate of the sanctuary which faces toward the east, but it was shut. And the Lord said to me, ‘This gate shall be shut; it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter by it, because the Lord God of Israel has entered by it; therefore it shall be shut. As for the prince, because he is the prince, he may sit in it to eat bread before the Lord; he shall enter by way of the vestibule of the gateway, and go out the same way.’”

Around 610 AD, according to some Muslim sources, the newly created religion of Islam and its followers began praying toward the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. This is known as the first Qiblah. The Jews and even Christians living in Jerusalem in 610 greeted Islam with hostility (any wonder why?). Some say it was only after this that Muhammad changed the direction of Islamic prayer so that they now pray facing Mecca, their holiest site, with their backs to the Temple Mount. Other Muslim sources say Muhammad received a “revelation” to pray towards Mecca.

Jerusalem is a city, mind you, that Muhammad never actually visited. Jerusalem is not even mentioned by name in the Quran—not mentioned in the Quran even once; BUT Jerusalem is mentioned 806 times in the ancient writings of the Bible. Jews have thousands of years of history before Islam was even created, and Christians over 1,000 by the time Ottoman rule took over in Jerusalem through conquest.

Let’s fast forward to the rebirth of Israel. The Bible tells us it would be born in one day, and it was. The Jews started immigrating back to their ancient, rightful homeland. But what about these Palestinians we hear of today and for the last four decades. Jews always maintained a presence in Jerusalem; for 3,700 hundred years they have maintained a presence, especially in Judea and Samaria. And right after that comes Christians. So where do the Palestinians come in? The Palestinian people were originally Jordanians, Egyptians and Saudi’s.

King Abdullah in 1948 said “Palestine and Jordan are one.” And then King Hussein in 1981 said, “The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan.” Earlier, in 1970, Prince Hassan had said the same thing but went a step further, saying, “There is only one land, with one history and one and the same fate.” This was the Prince speaking of Jordan.

Jordan also controls the Temple Mount. Why Israel agreed to that I will never know. They were called ONE people living in two states. In 1948 Jordan took control of the West bank (Judea and Samaria) where the holiest sites are and barred Jews from entering. They then tore down or completely destroyed 59 synagogues and desecrated Jewish graves. In 1950 Jordan annexed the West Bank.

Why didn’t we hear of the “Palestinians” before the last few decades? Why is there no “Palestinian culture” or “Palestinian cuisine?” A Palestinian language? Archeological evidence of their ancestors? The Jewish people find ancient evidence of their ancestors daily. Nothing to prove “Palestinian” existence has ever been found.

It wasn’t until 1967 that Arabs demanded an independent state of Palestine and we started to hear the first murmurings of the Palestinian people. This was after the Six-Day War in which they attacked Israel unprovoked. Only then did we suddenly hear of these Palestinian people. Yasser Arafat, the champion for the PLO and all things Palestinian, wasn’t even Palestinian. He was actually born in Egypt. Nobody really wanted or cared about Jerusalem until the Jews returned and made it bloom.

Isaiah 27:6 “He shall cause them that come from Jacob to take root, Israel shall blossom and bud and fill the face of the world with fruit.”

The Jews turned a barren wasteland into a thriving country. In 1867 Mark Twain visited the Holy Land and described it as “a desolate country…given over wholly to weeds – a silent mournful expanse.” Of the Jezreel Valley in Israel’s lower Galilee region, he said, “There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent—not for 30 miles in either direction.”

Mark Twain also said that Jerusalem was desolate and devoid of inhabitants. So where were these Palestinian’s with the long ancient history in Jerusalem? They were not there because they did not exist. They were still living in mostly Jordan. Jordan annexed the west bank, created these refugees and blamed Israel. Suddenly they were Israel’s problem. Suddenly the world felt sorry for these people, and the holocaust of the Jews faded. These newly invented people were suddenly the victims by the oppressive bully Israel.

Israel has tried numerous times to have peace talks with the Palestinian leaders. They do NOT want peace. They do not want the Jews in Jerusalem or even Israel. Any peace deal they sign in the future, God says will be broken.

Jerusalem has a long history, and that history has always included Jews, not Palestinians. Jerusalem belongs to the Jewish people; better yet, it belongs to God and it is not to be divided. Christians need to remember that. Christians should never be for a two-state solution. By agreeing, you are saying God’s land should be divided.

Welcome! My purpose is to study Gods word and spread His message through my writing…

As Christians, we are to put on the whole armor of God and not be deceived in these last days. Join me, as I show you through current geopolitical events, that the return of Jesus Christ is near, and what role Islam, the Vatican and the global politics across the world play.

You don’t have to be a Christian to see the change in the world. You don’t have to be a Christian to take notice of the huge increases in rape, assault and murder. Christian persecution is on the rise as are attacks on Jews. Gods people are under attack and it will only get worse.

Jesus said He did not come to unite or bring peace. He came to bring a sword. What is His sword? It’s the word of God. When you can debate with an unbeliever and use Gods word to destroy their argument, You’ve used the sword of God.

The Luciferian Globalist agenda has been unleashed. The Globalists want bridges not borders. They want a unified world. This is in direct contradiction to Gods word. In Babylon, the first attempt at globalization was stopped by God. He confused their language and the people gave up on the tower and settled in different areas.

Islam has played a major role in the reshaping of our world. The spirit of Antichrist has taken hold of the world and its christians, the light of the world, that are called to spread the gospel.

Spreading the gospel doesn’t mean you have to repeatedly try and share Christ’s message if it’s rejected, but it’s good if you do. The Bible tells us to shake the dust from our feet and move on to the next town. There are  many more who will welcome the gospel, some will still reject Him, while others will accept Him. If they don’t have the Holy Spirit, they will never accept Christ without it.

God told us of the signs to come before the return of His Son, Jesus. We were even warned not to be deceived and how we could be. Jesus told us He will NOT be in the “inner or upper rooms.” Who owns the upper room in Jerusalem? The Vatican. So in other words if you hear the Pope say,Jesus is here in the upper room, IT’S A LIE.

He also told us He will not be in the desert. What is in the desert? Numerous Islamic countries, including Turkey. Jesus is not returning to Iraq or Turkey or Saudi Arabia. He specifically told us HOW and WHERE He is returning. To the Mount of Olives, where He departed. He left in the clouds and will return on the clouds, in great glory.

Remember biblically speaking, everything that happens is all in relation to and relevant to Israel. Israel is the center of everything in the Bible, and in these last days, Israel has never been more important or volatile. God said He’d make Jerusalem a trembling cup and it certainly is.

What happens to,and around Israel, IS the world. God is not in heaven with the American flag draped over His shoulders. Gods hand is involved, there is no doubt of that. The United States is the largest Christian nation in the world and God has blessed this nation again because we have blessed Israel.

My articles are something I write while studying scripture, praying and watching our geopolitical world in action. I won’t just throw something out there, I study and write my articles in  hope I can make as many people understand bible prophecy and the last days we are living in, because it’s all right there, in the Bible.

I pray that you will learn something new, or understand something you didn’t grasp before. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we must learn from one another, pray for one another and most of all, spread the gospel to the ends of the earth!

God Bless you all.

Vanessa 🙏🙏😇😇💖💖
