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.

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.
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.

The Spirit of Hamas
Red Heifers Trigger Genocide
1/25/24 By Tim Buck
And the dread of the LORD fell upon all the kingdoms of the lands that surrounded Judah.
2 Chron. 17:10
I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling.
Abu Obeida, the military leader and spokesman for the Palestinian Hamas terrorist organization, made a televised appearance on the 100th day of the Israeli war in Gaza. The televised speech was the first time he had appeared in seven weeks as, during that time, all of his public statements were either audio recordings or written statements. A lapse of several weeks even led to speculations that he had been killed.
The Palestine Chronicle reported his speech, and listed the motives he gave for the Hamas attack on Israel:
“We look back 100 days to remember the powers of aggression that reached its peak against our path and Al-Aqsa (Temple Mount), with the bringing in of the red cows as an application of a detestable religious myth designed for aggression against the feelings of an entire nation in the heart of its Arab identity, and the path of its prophet (the Night Journey) and Ascension to heaven.”
In his speech, he referred to the October 7 attack as ” the Al Aqsa flood,” a term we’re hearing more and more. While “Al Aqsa” has historically only been used for the mosque at the south end of the Temple Mount, in recent years, as we get closer to the Tribulation, there’s been a shift in Islam to now claim the entire 37 acre Temple Mount is “Al Aqsa.”
The tactic has caught on and spread which is designed to garner broader support for Islamic control of the whole Temple Mount acting as it it was always their “holy ground’ of which Israel has no right. The term “Ay Aqsa” literally means “the further mosque”, referring to a myth created by the Umayyad Caliphate leader Omar in 682 CE, 50 years after Muhammad’s death.
According to the myth, Muhammad was carried to the site of the destroyed Jewish Temples in a miraculous overnight journey by al-Buraq, a magical horse with the head of a woman, wings of an eagle, the tail of a peacock, and hoofs reaching to the horizon. He tethered the horse to the Western Wall of the Temple Mount and from there ascended to the seventh heaven together with the angel Gabriel.
Abu Obeida continued:
“We will not tire or falter in calling all the free people of the nation to rise to support their Aqsa and the path of their prophet, which the criminal Zionists are practically advancing towards destroying and establishing their temple. This is why we have shed our blood in Gaza for 100 days and for which the epic of October 7th was about.”
In his speech, he frequently calls on “every Muslim on the face of the earth” to join the war.
Arab-language media covered Abu Abeida’s speech extensively, focusing on the red heifer while noting that five red female calves were brought to Israel in September 2022. After the announcement of the arrival of the cows, Hamas reacted almost immediately, warning that the potential Jewish ritual of the red heifers posed a threat to Al Aqsa and they have been preparing to respond ever since.
The red heifer is the main component in the Biblically mandated process for ritual purification of the priesthood to begin service in the temple. The purification ceremony has been lacking since the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD, leaving all Jews today considered ritually impure, thereby preventing the return of the Temple service.
Prophetic Anticipation Builds: Red Heifer Ceremony Soon
According to those working on the red heifer project, the ceremony of the red heifer needs to be performed on the Mount of Olives, and in a place that would have looked directly into where the Temple stood. A plot of land for this purpose, directly east of the Temple Mount, was purchased 12 years ago and meets both of those standards.
The Temple Institute launched its Red Heifer program about a decade ago, but even in Temple times, an animal that fulfilled the Biblical requirements was exceedingly rare. Failing to produce a suitable candidate from ranchers in Israel, the Temple Institute in Jerusalem began investigating alternative sources for a red heifer and found it in Texas in 2020.
Their arrival in Israel was a spiritual earthquake! Ever since the 5 red heifers arrived in 2022, Israel’s enemies have been shaking in their boots and planning the massacre of the Jews that took place on Oct. 7.
But Hamas underestimated the power of the Most High God over the imposter god Allah. God’s Word cannot be thwarted and nothing will prevent Israel from building their long-awaited Temple on the Temple Mount in God’s timing.… if they only knew what was really coming!
The red heifer ceremony is scheduled to be performed by the Temple Institute and take place on the Mt. of Olives during Passover Holiday, the last week of April 2024.
It remains to be seen, under the current war atmosphere in the country, if Israel’s government will permit the long anticipated ceremony to take place. Is this the time? Is the war a prelude to the end? Are we as close to the Rapture as it appears to be from these developments? I sure hope so!

Working Against Israel
1/23/24 By Tim Buck
The United States, Egypt and Qatar are continuing to exert pressure on Israel and the Hamas terror group to accept a “phased diplomatic progress” that would result in the release of the Israeli hostages in return for an Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu already rejected Hamas’ main condition of an Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, and a Hamas spokesman said there was “no real progress.”
Nevertheless, the “willingness to discuss the framework was a positive step. Mediators are now working to bridge the gap,” a source told the WSJ.
White House Coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa Brett McGurk is set to travel to Egypt and Qatar to discuss the progress of the negotiations, Axios reported.
McGurk is expected to meet with Egypt’s Minister of Intelligence Abbas Kamel, one of the main negotiators, and with Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani in the Qatari capital Doha.
The proposed outline for the deal includes three stages over the span of 90 days.
In a first stage, Israel would release hundreds of convicted Palestinian terrorists from its prisons and withdraw from the Gaza Strip in exchange for the release of the remaining 136 hostages in the hands of Hamas.
Israel would also agree to end drone surveillance over Gaza and double the amount of aid going into the enclave.
The second phase of the deal would see the release of more terrorists from prison in exchange for the bodies of hostages and the female soldiers who were killed and have been held by terrorists in Gaza.
In the third and last phase, Israeli soldiers and men, those whom Hamas refers to as soldiers because they are of fighting age, would be released.
The plan largely corresponds to reports by Israel’s Channel 13 news last week. Netanyahu already responded that he rejected the condition of an Israeli withdrawal from Gaza outright.
The Egyptian negotiating team said it felt there could be some flexibility on the part of the Hamas leadership regarding certain details, but noted that it still “adheres to the principle of a total cessation of hostilities, which is a fundamental rule from which there is no retreat,” Israel’s KAN news outlet reported on Monday.
According to the WSJ, Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar believes Israel will eventually prioritize the release of the hostages over the IDF’s accomplishments on the battlefield and, therefore, wants to play for time to enable international pressure on Israel to continue to build.
The renewed hostage release negotiations are also said to ultimately aim at establishing a permanent ceasefire and eventually lead to the normalization of relations between Israel and Arab countries like Saudi Arabia with the ultimate goal of restarting the progress toward a two-state solution.
