International Pressure To Divide Jerusalem Reveals
The Imminence of the Tribulation!
The Sign of Dividing Jerusalem
Is Getting Louder
2/20/24 By Tim Buck
The coming assault by Antichrist when he captures East Jerusalem and the Temple Mount in the middle of the Tribulation, can’t be too far behind as calls to divide Jerusalem are getting louder and louder by the day!
In a recent article by Hal Lindsey, “Recognizing ‘Palestine’ as a State in the Aftermath of Oct. 7 Would Reward the Worst Kind of Evil,” Lindsey correctly ties any near-term recognition of a Palestinian state as a prize for terrorism in the following paragraphs:
The idea is that the United States would make this move soon after Israel’s campaign in Gaza ends — and US pressure to end the campaign is already enormous. Hamas would then be able to say to every terror group in the world, “Here’s how you get the really big concessions. Kill, mutilate, rape, burn people to death, and take lots of innocents as hostages.”
To recognize a state of Palestine in the aftermath of their October terror attacks on Israel would encourage every rogue group on earth to follow that wicked path. It would bring chaos to this planet, the likes of which have never been seen before!
The determination of western nations like America, the UK, the EU and other nations to reward the murderous brutality of Hamas in such a way as dividing the Land of Israel demonstrates the imminence of the seven-year Tribulation. I say this for several reasons.
Long ago, Israel’s prophets wrote about the world’s determination to divide Israel in the latter days:
“I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.”
The current resolve to divide the land of Israel is a significant harbinger that will appear just before the Tribulation. This means that international pressure will continue, resulting in God’s final judgment of the nations at the end of the Tribulation. Since we already see such widespread passion for this, how close must we be to the Day of the Lord?
The prophet Zechariah wrote about a future time when the nations of the world would become consumed with Jerusalem (12:1-5). This prophecy is coming to life in our time.
Do any UN members seek to give away a part of any other capital city in the world? Of course not.
But just as the Lord predicted through Zechariah, this is now happening to Jerusalem in the last days.
Does this not point to our soon Rapture disappearance followed by this time of wrath upon the earth? (1 Thessalonians 5:1-10).
The sad news is that the world’s preoccupation with Jerusalem will lead to much suffering for the Israelites. The good news is that it will cause a remnant to recognize Jesus as their Messiah by the end of the seven-year Tribulation (Zechariah 12:10-13:9).
Why Does Biden Think the Palestinians Deserve a State?
Joe Biden wants to reward the Palestinians, who have voiced their overwhelming support for Hamas’ attack on October 7, by handing them a state. Why do they deserve a state? They don’t. The Arabs have 22 states, and the creation of a 23rd one, sharing the tiny space “between the river and the sea,” would be a mortal threat to the only Jewish state.
But Biden, like most world leaders is under the influence of the dark forces of the enemy and he can’t see because he’s been deceived to the point where he can’t get out of his head the notion of a “two-state solution” which will somehow “bring peace” to the region. Since its very name contains the word “solution” many, like Biden, Blinken, and Sullivan, simply assume that’s what it must be. It’s sleight of word.
In fact, forcing Israel to be squeezed back within the 1949 armistice lines — which is what the Arabs will insist on, and Biden looks ready to satisfy them — would not sate, but would just whet Arab appetites. Without the minimal strategic depth that control of Judea and Samaria (a/k/a the West Bank) — and especially, possession of the Jordan Valley — provides, Israel will not have the “secure [i.e. defensible] and recognized boundaries” that, according to UN Security Council Resolution 242, it has a right to possess.
After all the wars that have been thrust upon it, doesn’t Israel deserve to retain defensible borders? And even more important, shouldn’t Israel be allowed to keep the borders that the League of Nations envisaged for the future Jewish state, when it decided that the territory of Mandatory Palestine should include all the land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea?
Israel’s Covenant with Antichrist
The clock will start ticking on the seven-year Tribulation when Israel agrees to a peace covenant with Antichrist (Daniel 9:27). Isaiah describes this future agreement as “a covenant with death” (Isaiah 28:14-18).
Do we see any stage setting for this now in the aftermath of all that’s transpired in Israel since October 7, 2023? Absolutely.
The Biden administration’s proposal for a two-state solution rewards barbarism, murder, and rape of innocent people. Benjamin Netanyahu will not agree to any such plan now or in the near future. He recently turned down a Hamas proposal to end the war in Gaza.
However, several factors seem likely to weaken the current resolve of Israel’s leaders in the future. Israel’s ongoing war on many fronts, the likelihood of a much deadlier encounter with Hezbollah, and the obtaining of a nuclear bomb by Iran are likely to continue for many months or longer. We can expect that the nonstop threats to the nation’s existence will, at some point, make its leaders vulnerable to an offer of peace.
What if a new Islamic Kingdom appears in the Middle East with a leader who seems both able and willing to guarantee a time of peace for the nation? What if this coming “man of lawlessness” sweetens the deal by including the construction of the Jewish third temple on the Temple Mount?
I believe such factors will cause Israel’s leaders to come to terms with the covenant offered by Antichrist. The war with Hamas is a game changer and events yet unseen are being planned and could happen overnight in the near future, and rapidly progress to this point after the Rapture of the Church.
The Rapture is the greatest promise in Scripture for the church and an event that could happen at any moment. It’s the nearness of the Tribulation that leads to our awareness that it could happen very soon since the New Testament assures us that our disappearance will happen before Israel inks the “covenant of death” with Antichrist.
Spotted Escaping Tunnel

Senior Hamas Terrorist
Seized by IDF in Jenin Raid
2/15/24 By Tim Buck
Israeli security forces arrested one of the leading Hamas terrorists in command of the terror group’s military infrastructure in the West Bank town of Jenin on Tuesday, according to an official statement.
In a joint operation of forces by the IDF, the Shin Bet, and the Border Police, including an undercover counter-terrorism unit, the arch-terrorist Omar Fayed was arrested in the town of Jenin in northern Samaria.
Fayed was recently involved in several shooting attacks against Israeli forces and was reportedly planning to carry out more such attacks. Upon his arrest, he was transferred for further questioning,
During the operation, Israeli forces identified a gunman in the area and opened fire at him. Two police officers were lightly injured by shrapnel and were evacuated to a hospital for medical treatment.
Earlier on Tuesday, IDF soldiers thwarted an attempted ramming attack near the Gush Etzion Junction, about 12 kilometers (7 miles) south of Jerusalem.
A Palestinian man attempted to drive his car into several people waiting at a bus stop. After he missed them, the driver then tried to flee the scene.
Israeli soldiers later caught up with him near the settlement of Elazar. They shot the man, injuring him, and arrested him before taking him to a hospital, the IDF reported. Soldiers later found a knife in the car.
Tuesday’s rare daytime raid follows Monday’s statement that Israeli security forces arrested 17 terror suspects throughout Judea and Samaria in overnight raids.
In the village of Tell in Samaria, IDF troops arrested seven wanted persons and confiscated military equipment found during searches of their homes.
Overnight from Sunday to Monday, IDF soldiers also thwarted an attempted stabbing attack near the village of Hussan and eliminated the would-be terrorist.
Since the start of the war against Hamas terrorists, which began on Oct. 7, the IDF has increased its forces in the West Bank to counteract Hamas’ efforts to set the area ablaze with incitement and terror attacks.
So far, over 3,080 wanted persons have been arrested throughout Judea and Samaria, including 1,350 known associates of the terrorist organization Hamas.
Terrorism in the West Bank
Fighting continues daily in the West Bank as the IDF seeks to root out Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), and a host of other terror groups.
The stronghold of West Bank terrorism is the town of Jenin (Northern Samaria), West Bank.
People think that Israel’s greatest threats are in the south and north of the country, but it’s quite possible that another October 7-like massacre could break out almost anytime in the West Bank. There’s several reasons for this.
First, the will is there. Most Palestinians, wherever they’re from, tend to support Hamas.
Second, the ability is there. The West Bank has been heavily weaponized through Iranian smuggling channels over the years. If there were an attack, there would be no shortage of guns or ammunition.
Lastly, the hostile attitude of the U.S. and Europe against Jews living in the West Bank emboldens the Palestinians living there, giving them an excuse to attack. As they’ve decided to do with Hamas, Israel seems to have decided, it’s time to try to clean out the terrorist pockets in the West Bank before its too late.
4 Horses of the Apocalypse
And the Palestinian Flag
2/9/24 By Tim Buck
These 4 colors — white, red, black, and green — also represent the Palestinian flag which is being displayed around the world and has become man’s greatest symbol of Jew hatred and calling for Muslims to exterminate the Jewish people from God’s land “from the river to the sea.”
These 4 apocalyptic colors are defiantly being waved all over the world in capitol buildings, along highways, airports, and in the most recent, pro-Hamas demonstrations around the world! They display the hatred for Israel that Jesus and the prophets warned about when the nations turn against Israel in the last days. This is today! Indeed, God Himself will lead these rebellious nations into a war against His people. Zechariah 14 prophesies a final sacking of Jerusalem with Antichrist capturing the Temple Mount just before Messiah returns, and the beloved nation looks on Him Whom they have pierced and mourns for Him as an Only Son.
The four colors that make up the Palestinian flag and wave at anti-Israel protests symbolize the Satanic world system that denies any divine, prophetic fulfillment about Israel or the still-to-be fulfilled prophecies of the Millennial reign of Christ in Israel to rule over the nations. In that day, there will be one capitol only and one king only and one religion only and it will be about the Lord Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
A study of the origin of these “Pan-Arab colors” is startling. Each of the colors was chosen during WWI, when the Holy Land was wrested from the Turks and the Ottoman Caliphate and put into the hands of the Brits. During that time, each of these Pan-Arab colors — white, red, black, and green — were chosen to represent the four historic caliphates of Islam listed above. Over the centuries, these Islamic dynasties fought some 548 battles, enslaving, destroying, slaughtering millions thus making the four colorful symbols a perfect choice by the spirit of Antichrist for the return and rise of Islam today and for their coming warfare against Israel.
Is it just a coincidence that the colors of the four horses in Revelation 6 are the exact same modern colors that are now waving on the flags of Israel’s enemies?
Leads Arab Summit
2/9/24 By Tim Buck
Five participating countries aim to raise pressure on Israel for a ceasefire by leveraging their willingness to assist in rebuilding Gaza and to integrate Israel into the region but assistance is contingent on a Palestinian state being immediately advanced by Israel.
Saudi Arabia hosted a summit of foreign ministers from five countries in the region on Thursday in order to advance a united Arab stance regarding the war in Gaza as well as political initiatives for when the fighting ends.
The Arab foreign ministers are slated to discuss efforts to expand pressure for a ceasefire in Gaza, leveraging their willingness to take part in the Gaza Strip’s rehabilitation after the war in addition to further integrating Israel into the region, on the condition that Jerusalem agrees to take steps creating an irreversible pathway to an eventual Palestinian state.
The gathering is the latest example of the united front that Israel’s Arab partners and potential allies are building, one that is increasingly at odds with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, which expects the war to continue for many more months until “total victory” is secured. On the other hand, the grouping of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia is offering Israel a partnership that could be used to more effectively combat Iran, which Netanyahu has long sought.
The meeting — which has not previously been publicized — will also be attended by Hussein al-Sheikh, a top aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas; as Riyadh continues to expand its cooperation with Ramallah, assuaging concerns that Saudi Arabia will abandon the Palestinian cause to boost its regional and global stature.
Joining Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan and Sheikh will be the top diplomats from Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, according to the diplomats.
The summit follows several covert meetings Riyadh organized over the past month for top national security officials from Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and the PA.
Is There More To The Colors
Than We Realize?
Horses are frequently used in the book of Revelation to depict warfare (9:9, 17; 19:14,18). The four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in Revelation 6, represent God’s judgment being released on mankind through the Hamas-like military conquests of Antichrist and his crushing Caliphate.
So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
Like Hamas, when the Caliphate rides forth it will be vicious and cruel on the people of Israel. The current Hamas invasion and slaughter of Jews is a foretaste of what’s coming. If Revelation was written today, instead of four horses the Apostle John could be using four colored tanks or four colored F-16’s. The symbolic use of horses is ancient but the colors are modern. A display of God’s foreknowledge and omniscience!
Hamas and the Palestinians are deceived with the Israel-hating, spirit of Antichrist that’s accelerating. The Palestinian Media Watch is a trustworthy source in exposing the hypocrisy, backwards, upside down, lying and demonic spirit of Hamas and the Palestinians. For American’s, it’s hard to wrap your head around pure evil but knowing the religious root behind it helps us understand it better!
Spirit of Hamas
2/8/24 By Tim Buck
On a recent Palestinian TV broadcast in the West Bank, that was released by PMW, the father of a terrorist killed in Gaza can be heard declaring that the Bible teaches that “only Jews are human – all others are not human.”
He further says, “We ask Allah to send people like Hitler, Nebuchadnezzar and Pharaoh.”
Palestinian Authority (PA), the government of the Palestinians in the West Bank, pours out non-stop Antisemitism that is both vicious and fundamental to PA and Hamas ideology. Their constant demonization of Jews, Israel, Jewish sources and traditions, has a very sinister purpose: It is the basis for hatred that justifies murder.
Put simply, once the Hamas and PA leadership convinces Palestinians that the Jewish/Israeli evil is innate to Jewish nature and endangers Palestinians and all humanity, Palestinians feel justified and even righteous about hating and killing Jews and even praying for Allah to bring another Holocaust.
Official Palestinian TV recently broadcast one of their hate libels about Jews and Judaism, that was put forth by the father of a terrorist. After complaining about his terrorist son’s home being destroyed, he explained that “love of revenge is innate for them [Jews]. They learned it in the Talmud and the Bible.” He then repeated additional libels that echo PA and Hamas Antisemitism about the evil belief of Jews, falsely claiming it is part of the Hebrew Bible.
A Palestinian State?
Incredibly, these are the people to whom Obama and Biden want Israel to believe in and become “peace-partners with!” And to whom most of the world’s leaders are demanding that Israel give up the West Bank for a Palestinian State.
The father continues, “Their biblical belief [the Jews] is that God created non-human beings in the form of humans. Only they are human, only Jews are human; the rest of humanity is not human. This is how they [Jews] think and this is how they behave.”
[Official PA TV, Jan. 24, 2024]
Note, the Bible teaches that all people are created in the “Image of God.”
Hamas and the PA taught that same libel about Jewish belief in its documentary about the evil nature of Jews:
“In Europe, the [Jewish] tribe established camps and residential areas, crowded ghettos in order to separate from other people out of arrogance and disgust for non-Jews… who according to their [Jews’] worldview are snakes… [The Jews] were hated because of their racism and their filthy behavior… They swear:… ‘Only we are people, and all the others are our animals.’”
[Official Fatah Facebook page, July 15, 2019]
Jews Deserve To Be Killed
The lies echoed by the father of the terrorist has practical implications: Since Jewish evil behavior is innate to Jewish belief, then the only solution is destruction.
Accordingly, the terrorist’s father then prayed that Allah should bring another Holocaust on the Jews and other punishments, bringing people like Hitler, Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, and Pharaoh. With this prayer, he was again echoing Hamas and PA religious teachings, that the Jews deserve their punishment from Allah, as they are “planning and systematically working to incite wars and strife in the entire world.” Because of this Allah sent Nebuchadnezzar to destroy the First Temple, then he sent the Roman General Titus to destroy the Second Temple, and then Hitler and the kings of Europe, and still the Jews did not learn their lesson.
Finally, the father of the terrorist, prayed for Allah to bring a new Hitler to torture the Jews:
“We ask Allah to send someone who will torture them like Hitler did, and before him Nebuchadnezzar [Babylonian king who destroyed the Temple] and before him Pharaoh [who enslaved them].”
This is the spirit of Hamas (the spirit of Antichrist) who wrestled control of Gaza away from the Palestinian Authority in 2007 because they said the PA was not anti-Israel enough and didn’t act strong enough to rid the land of Jews!
Palestinian Media Watch has been warning for years that the PA’s teachings and Antisemitism must be expunged from PA teachings and national ideology before any peace process can be undertaken.
See here Itamar Marcus’ recent presentation to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, showing the connection between Hamas and PA Antisemitism and the October 7 Hamas atrocities.
