President Trump Orders Pentagon to Take Out Iranian General Soleimani

PRESIDENT TRUMP ORDERS PENTAGON TO UNLEASH APACHE AIRSTRIKE TO KILL IRAN’S ELITE QUDS FORCE GENERAL QASSEM SOLEIMANI IN STUNNING PAYBACK FOR ATTACK ON US EMBASSY IN BAGHDAD

The Pentagon said the deadly strike on Soleimani and his cohorts “was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans.”
The strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy Secretary for Hezbollah, the commander of Iran-backed militias in Iraq known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, or PMF.
The PMF media arm said the two were killed in an American airstrike that targeted their vehicles in a pre-dawn strike at the Baghdad the airport.

Talk about a difference, President Trump isn’t playing around not even a little bit. This administration is the polar opposite of how Barack Obama conducted business, allowing Iran to virtually walk all over us at every given opportunity.

For more on the Obama backstory to the mess in Iraq go HERE.

Mere days after pro-Iranian militia attacked the US Embassy in Baghdad, President Trump ordered a precision strike on the top Quds Force general, and now he’s dead.

The US Air Force strike on Thursday night leaves notorious Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani & the Deputy Secretary of Hezbollah in Lebanon dead.

Soleimani was responsible for the recruitment of countless terror proxies throughout the Middle East. This comes just days after Trump’s adamant threat to Iran for their organized raid on the US embassy in Baghdad.

On Thursday night, United States Air Force Apache helicopters carried out an airstrike on an enemy vehicle leaving the Baghdad International Airport.

Hours later, it was revealed that approximately six people were killed, including at least three Iranians, including the notorious commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, Qasem Soleimani.

This news is unprecedented, and it doesn’t stop there. Additionally, the deputy secretary for Hezbollah in Lebanon, Nail Qassem, died.

This strike comes only days after President Trump vowed to respond strongly to the Iranian-orchestrated raid on the US embassy in Baghdad, Iraq. In his tweet the day of the raid, Trump stated that what he vowed was not a warning, but a threat.

The implications of this strike cannot be overstated. When you account for the devastating economic sanctions the US has implemented on Iran and now the killing of two significant leaders, you can see a serious escalation on the horizon.

The Pentagon verified the death of Soleimani, stating, “At the direction of the President, the US military has taken decisive defensive action to protect US personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a US-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.”

The statement from the Pentagon continued in stating that “General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region. General Soleimani and his Quds Force were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more.”

NEW DETAILS LEAKED FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ‘DEAL OF THE CENTURY’ PEACE PLAN SHOWS ISRAEL SHARING CONTROL OF JERUSALEM WITH A NEWLY-CREATED STATE OF PALESTINE

Details of the Trump Plan, released by a TV channel based in Lebanon, discuss a trilateral peace agreement between the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and Israel in which a “new Palestinian state” would be established in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, excluding the West Bank Jewish settlement blocs which would remain part of Israel.

Jerusalem will remain united under mostly Israeli control with some responsibilities shared with a Palestinian state including the West Bank and Gaza, according to a draft copy of President Trump’s “Deal of the Century” peace plan for the Middle East published by the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen TV channel this week.

Stunning new details have been leaked, purposely of course, regarding the ‘Deal Of The Century’ that Donald Trump has tasked Jared Kushner with working out. The West Bank and the Gaza Strip would form the nucleus of the new Palestinian State, and this new state would share control of an undivided Jerusalem with Israel. Deal or no deal? That’s the question. And what is the answer to that question? Jerusalem. It has always been about Jerusalem.

“Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.” Nehemiah 2:20 

This plan is light years ahead of whatever has been presented up until the Trump presidency!

After reading the proposal below, even if it fails it is the most well thought out peace plan that once again will serve to accelerate end time events.

This plan, in essence, is laying the groundwork for the coming seven-year covenant between Israel and Antichrist that triggers the time clock for the 7-year Tribulation.

If it was any other nation than Israel, and any other city than Jerusalem, it would be a slam-dunk.

But my Bible tells me that Israel is not numbered among the nations and Jerusalem is not like any other city. It is the place where God has put His own name.

From a Bible prophecy perspective Jerusalem is the key in all of this. Jerusalem is God’s city and Satan wants it. The center of Bible prophecy is Israel and the center of Israel is Jerusalem. 

“Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 14:21 

An interesting twist in the fine print is that Saudi Arabia would control the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem instead of Jordan who is doing it now. Now we are starting to see why President Trump has spent time and energy wooing the Saudi kingdom. It’s all beginning to make sense.

Jerusalem To Remain United In ‘Deal of the Century’

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: The draft details the timetable and methods of the plan. 

Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (PLO) are currently in talks to hold elections for the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Jerusalem. Jerusalem will not be split up in the agreement, but instead will be “shared” between Israel and the Palestinian state, with the Arab population of the city becoming residents of the Palestinian state, according to the reported draft.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks at the Israeli-American Council Summit in Hollywood, Florida, U.S. December 7, 2019

Al-Aqsa Mosque will be put under Saudi Arabian control instead of Jordanian control, according to the draft. The mosque is currently administered by the Waqf, an arm of the Jordanian Ministry of Sacred Properties. It is unclear whether the rules currently prohibiting non-Muslim prayer at the site would change under Saudi Arabian control.

This new arrangement with Saudi Arabia is a major change to the status quo on the Temple Mount and if it happens, would align with the prophetic events of Revelation 17 where the Beast becomes enraged at Saudi Arabia aka Mystery Babylon, and destroys Saudi Arabia and the city of Mecca in one hour (Rev. 17:16-17; 18:17)!

THE JERUSALEM MUNICIPALITY WOULD BECOME RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ENTIRE CITY OF JERUSALEM, BUT THE PALESTINIAN STATE WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR EDUCATION AND WOULD PAY THE ISRAELI MUNICIPALITY TAXES AND UTILITIES.

JEWS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PURCHASE ARAB HOMES AND ARABS WON’T BE ABLE TO PURCHASE JEWISH HOMES – AND NO ADDITIONAL AREAS WILL BE ANNEXED TO JERUSALEM. HOLY SITES IN THE CITY WILL REMAIN AS THEY ARE TODAY, ACCORDING TO THE REPORT.

In the Gaza Strip, Egypt would grant land to the new Palestinian state in order to build an airport and industrial facilities. Palestinians would not be able to live in the lands provided by Egypt. A highway and a pipeline for treated water would be built between Gaza and the West Bank, according to the reported draft.

The United States, the European Union and the Gulf states would help implement the agreement and sponsor it economically. “An amount of $30 billion will be allocated over a period of 5 years for projects related to the new Palestinian state,” reported the paper.

The United States will provide 20% of the funds in the agreement, while the EU will provide 10% and the Gulf nations will provide 70%. The contribution provided by the Gulf nations will be split between them according to their oil producing capabilities.

According to the draft, an agreement will be signed between Israel and the new Palestinian state, with Israel providing protection to the state from “external aggression,” while the Palestinians pay for it. The amount that the Palestinians will need to pay for this protection will be negotiated between the Arab nations and Israel.

The Al-Mayadeen report detailed a timetable provided in the draft copy of the agreement.

Upon the signing of the agreement, Hamas will hand over its weapons and armaments to Egypt, and members of Hamas will receive monthly salaries from Arab nations. The borders of the Gaza Strip will be opened to international trade through the crossings with Israel and Egypt and by sea. Trade will also open between Gaza and the West Bank.

A year after the agreement is signed, democratic elections will be held for the Palestinian state, with all Palestinian citizens being able to run as candidates. Around that time, all prisoners would begin being released, to be completed over a period of three years.

Within five years, a seaport and airport will be established for the Palestinian state. Until that point, Palestinians will be able to use Israeli ports. The borders between the Palestinian state and Israel will be open to the passage of civilians and goods. A highway that rises 30 meters above the ground will connect Gaza to the West Bank. The highway would be built by a Chinese company.

The Jordan Valley would remain under Israeli control, according to the report. Highway 90 will be expanded and will link the Palestinian state with Jordan. The highway will be supervised by the Palestinians.

If Hamas and the PLO reject the deal, the United States will end all financial support they provide to the Palestinians and will try to prevent other countries from providing support to the Palestinians.

If the PLO accepts the agreement and Hamas or the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist groups don’t accept, then the two organizations would bear the responsibility of their decision. In any military confrontation between Israel and Hamas, the US will support Israel in order to harm the leaders of Hamas and PIJ, as the US won’t accept a situation in which dozens of people control the fate of millions.

IF ISRAEL REJECTS THE DEAL, THE US WILL END ECONOMIC SUPPORT TO THE STATE OF ISRAEL, ACCORDING TO AL-MAYADEEN.

Although Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has said that the US is biased, one of his chief advisers reportedly said they would not reject Trump’s plan outright.

A letter published in The Guardian by former EU officials, including six prime ministers and 25 foreign ministers, called for postponing the “Deal of the Century” because it is unfair to the Palestinians.

In the letter, which was sent to the European Union and EU governments, the former leaders argue that Europe must stand by the two-state solution and condemn the Trump administration’s policy, which they claim is unilaterally in favor of Israel.

Only A Virgin Born Jesus Can Be Messiah

Only A Virgin Born Jesus Can Be Messiah

Jeconiah a Cursed King

Only Jesus can be the Messiah

By Tim Buck

King David was a descendant of the tribe of Judah. God said that the Messiah would come out of the tribe of Judah. God also promised King David that his descendant would be king over all the earth.

Gen 49:10 says,  “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.”

The name Shiloh means “the one to whom it belongs”. In this case he is the one to whom the scepter belongs. The scepter is the staff of the eternal king of earth namely the Messiah.

Psa 132:11, “The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.”

However the royal line of Judah ran into a BIG problem around 590 BC.

The Hebrew King Jeconiah (or Coniah) didn’t listen to God’s warnings about Israel’s disobedience. So the nation of Israel was taken away captive to Babylon.

Because of King Jeconiah’s wickedness God cursed the royal line of King David. No descendant of King Jeconiah could ever sit on the throne again!

Jeremiah 22:28-30,  “Is this man Coniah a despised broken idol? is he a vessel wherein is no pleasure? wherefore are they cast out, he and his seed, and are cast into a land which they know not?  29  O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD.  30  Thus saith the LORD, Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.”

So the royal lineage of the tribe of Judah was cursed by God in King Jeconiah. That was a problem and the virgin birth was the solution!

Jesus’ father Joseph belonged to the tribe of Judah through David and Jeconiah. Jesus’ mother Mary was a descendent of King David’s son Nathan.

Only through a virgin birth and the adoption into Joseph’s family could the prophecy be fulfilled that the Messiah would be a descendant of King David and belong to the royal line of Judah.

Jesus Christ’s virgin birth makes him the only person who ever lived who can fulfill the prophecy that the Messiah would be a descendant of King David and still belong to the royal line of Judah past the cursed King Jeconiah.

Isaiah’s prophecy reflects Jesus’ birth, adoption and acceptance into the tribe of Judah’s royal lineage.

Isa 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Clashes Between IDF and Syrian Army

Clashes Between IDF and Syrian Army

New realities are emerging in the Middle East

Since the Syrian war broke out in 2011, Israel has been the only military force able to oppose Iran.

Overnight, Israel finds itself in a new season in which the Iranians are free to attack the Saudi oil infrastructure and the Turks are free to invade Syria.

How is all of this effecting Israel!

Trump’s Syria Pullout is Great for Israel

While some in the pro-Israel community have been decrying President Trump’s decision to withdraw US troops in northern Syria to make way for a Turkish invasion, Israel stands to benefit significantly from the move.

Most pundits don’t seem to understand what’s really going on regarding the whole Trump/Kurd saga and most are too biased to applaud his strategy because they hate President Trump.

If Erdogan would have invaded Syria and killed US troops, they would have said that he dragged the US into an unnecessary war. The president is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.

The balance of power in the Middle East right now favors Iran and Sunni states like Turkey have been offset by the Shiite expansion of Iran. To hobble Iran, Trump launched the most successful sanctions war in history. The sanctions have weakened Iran, thus weakening the Shiites.

However, there is still no one to fight on the ground to prevent the Shiites who continue invading Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, while at the same time, they also keep surrounding Israel with their proxies of Hamas and Hezbollah.

In light of this reality, President Erdogan of Turkey decided it was time to tell Trump that he has decided to is enter Syria as a Sunni power and that he was planning to send thousands of Sunni soldiers inside. Most of those troops he noted, would be Turkish backed Syrian Rebels.

This presented a great opportunity for President Trump. That’s because the decision to withdraw troops in Syria kills two birds with one stone.

On the one hand, Trump is evacuating the US troops, which was his campaign promise and on the other hand he’s injecting a Sunni force into Syria that will challenge (Syria’s Shiite affiliated leader) Assad along with the mullah’s of Iran.

Iran Holding Surprise Military Drills Near Turkish Border

Pressure Mounting on Iran
And since Syria is Iran’s client state, Iran is so concerned, they’ve been positioning themselves and holding military drills along the Iranian -Turkish border. Now Iran finds itself, like the rest of the world, worrying itself over the next moves of Erdogan’s Sunni forces.They need to be worried.This Turkish (Sunni) invasion, with thousands, could become tens of thousands of well trained and well armed Sunni militias.This means that Iranian proxies like Hezbollah are going to have to refocus their efforts away from Israel’s border to fight Turkey’s Sunni forces in the North which is good for Israel.

Most of the Iranian satellite Shiite militias have received orders to abandon the southern front with Israel and move up north and build defenses against Turkey’s invasion.

In other words, Trump’s move, which led to Erdogan’s move, has revived the Syrian civil war which, in effect, is bringing a more balanced Sunni-Shiite struggle, for control of Syria and Iraq back into the region.

And as far as Israel is concerned, that’s a good thing!

The Prophetic Significance of Turkey’s Invasion of Syria

The Prophetic Significance of Turkey’s Invasion of Syria

Middle East Mayhem is nothing new!

The fast-deteriorating situation was set in motion last week, when President Trump ordered U.S. troops in northern Syria to step aside, clearing the way for an attack by Turkey, which regards the Kurds as terrorists.

Should we blame President Trump or is there a bigger perspective here?

Chaos in Syria:  Paving the Way For a Turkish-Led Caliphate
The rumblings stirred by Turkey’s Operation Spring of Peace into Syria this week are triggering alarm bells with students of prophecy. Turkey is on the move… pay attention!
I’ve been warning for years to keep an eye on Turkey saying they will RISE AGAIN in the latter days as the head of the Ottoman Empire and that, out of that evil empire, will come Antichrist.
How significant is Turkey’s march into Syria? In terms of immediate geo-political significance, PROBABLY not all that much.
But in terms of prophetic significance, Turkey’s assault into Syria is one of the most important developments now happening on the end time stage!
For the first time in almost 100 years, the Turkish military is marching and conquering again. This is a watershed moment indicating that the wound to the seventh head of the beast has been healed (Rev. 13:3, 12, 14; 17:11).

In my view, Turkey’s coming-out assault into Syria is best viewed as the opening bell toward their eventual emergence as the head of the Islamic Caliphate.

There are many more rounds to come including a clash with Iran before these two Sunni-Shiite giants merge into the final Beast empire.

Since he became president, I’ve tried to point out the significant role President Trump has had in accelerating last day events!
It’s like he’s batting 1,000, which means the list is getting long.

Here he’s done it again. After standing in the way, the President calmly moved aside allowing Turkey to launch its maiden attack.

Just in case you forgot, or should I say, just in case the left leaning, fake news, has you convinced Trump is wrong, let me remind you four things the President preached he would do while running for office.

The president promised that he would:

1. Pull our troops home
2. Put America first
3. Defeat ISIS
4. And not remain afterward

These goals have now been achieved and the president is fulfilling his promises.
A Smart Decision
President Trump, faced with a horrible situation, is making a smart decision to not intervene in a war with Turkey. He’s committed to increasing sanctions on Turkey if they attempt genocide on the Syrian’s or Kurds.

And let’s not forget that he’s committed to Israel’s security, more than any modern president in history! Let me mention one final point that remains to develop. The President may wisely be green lighting Turkey’s entrance into Syria as his best option to push back on Iran. Turkey is the leader of the Sunni world and after the defeat of the Sunni-ISIS Caliphate, Shiite Iran flooded into Syria and Iraq. No one has been able to prevent Iran’s takeover of these countries.

Enter Turkey…
If Turkey believes this is their hour, they have the strength and military to severely cripple Iran’s incursion into these countries.
They also have the backing of the majority of Sunni nations in the region including nuclear powered Pakistan.
That, my friends,  just might be the primary reason for allowing the Turks to invade Syria in the first place!
Israel’s Covenant With Death

Israel’s Covenant With Death

For 50 years, US presidents have been laying the groundwork for peace in the Middle East. This is serious business because scripture teaches that the 7-Year Tribulation begins when Antichrist signs a “peace treaty” or covenant with Israel,

27 Then he (Antichrist) will confirm a covenant (Treaty) with many for one-week (7 years). In the middle of the week (Halfway point = 3.5 years) he (Antichrist) will put an end to the sacrifices and offerings. 

The notion of Israel entering into a deceptive covenant with Antichrist is a key end-time prophecy mentioned in Daniel 9:27 and Isaiah 10:20; 28:14-18.


In Isaiah 28, Isaiah is warning Judah that though they boast that they have achieved peace and security, their security covenant will be broken and the invasion which they sought to avoid will overwhelm them,

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 (assault) will not reach us when it passes by, for we have made falsehood our refuge and we have concealed ourselves with deception.

Your covenant with death will be canceled, and your pact with Sheol will not stand; When the overwhelming scourge (assault/war) passes through, then you become its trampling place.(Isaiah 28:15, 18)

It is important to highlight several realities established by this passage concerning this last-days covenant. The “covenant of death,” or the “pact with Sheol” is (1) made by the rulers of Judah, (2) made with “death”, (3) instead of trusting in Messiah, they rely on the covenant, (4) they enter into the covenant specifically for the purpose of avoiding “the overwhelming (flooding) scourge”, yet (5) the covenant “will be cancelled” or broken. And so, (6) instead of providing Judah with deliverance from the flooding scourge, they will be “trampled” by it.

This passage contains every element of the view that Israel will enter into a “covenant” or security alliance with Antichrist (death). The result will be a broken covenant and the overwhelming military “flood” of  Antichrist will sweep into the land.

The length of the covenant being seven years is not found in this passage but is seen in Daniel 9:27 and in Jesus’ exposition of the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24).

Finally, it seems as if Israel learns their lesson. Isaiah prophesies that in the Messianic Kingdom, after being trampled by Antichrist for 3 ½ years, Israel will repent of their misplaced trust.

No longer will they trust or rely on Antichrist (which this passage in Isaiah refers to as “the Assyrian”) for their security. Instead, “in that day” they will rely solely on the Lord:

Now in that day the remnant of Israel, and those of the house of Jacob who have escaped, will never again rely on the one who struck them, but will truly rely on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 10:20)
