Hezbollah

Aside from the day-to-day attacks from Hezbollah and the Israeli airstrikes in response, Northern Israel’s hospitals are preparing for the looming war with Hezbollah. The IDF continues to intercept explosive projectiles on a daily basis. The War is coming very soon so please continue to pray! In the meantime, Israeli officials have voiced that part of the reason they’ve delayed entering a war is to build up the munitions supply – offensive and defensive. Hezbollah is likely to be sorry by the time this war is done. Hezbollah and Lebanon are bracing for impact. In fact, Lebanese sources reported that Biden’s representative, Amos Hochstein delivered an Israeli message to the Lebanese government according to which: If Hezbollah does not retreat north beyond the Litani River by 6/24, Israel will start a war in Lebanon.

In his speech just a couple of days ago, Hezbollah Leader Hassan Nasrallah communicated that: 1) The party that should be in fear now is Israel. 2) Hezbollah will continue its operations in support of Gaza and is prepared for all scenarios. 3) Hezbollah has a significant amount of information. Their drone footage published this week is just a small part of many hours filmed in Haifa. 4) Hezbollah knows that Israelis are conducting drills in Cyprus and its airports, which they plan to use if their own airports or facilities are struck. 5) Hezbollah warned Cyprus against opening its facilities to Israel. If it does, Hezbollah will consider it part of the war. 6) All the Hezbollah weapons meant for Lebanon have already arrived. 7) These weapons will be revealed when necessary, and we have new weapons to introduce. 8) Hezbollah produces some of the rockets they need. 9) Hezbollah has a large number of drones because they manufacture them. 10) Hezbollah has a comprehensive and accurate target bank inside Israel and the capability to reach these targets. 11) They threatened that Israel must be prepared on land, air, and sea, and we will fight without constraints or limitations. 12) The Israeli enemy knows that what awaits it in the Mediterranean Sea is substantial. 13) This threat may also include the US.

However, the Cyprian ambassador to Israel responded to this threat by stating that the country’s relationship with Israel is strong and that Nasrallah should really just bite his tongue. Moreover, the Cyprian foreign minister assured the terrorist group leader that Lebanon will pay a heavy price in response to any retaliation on Cyprian soil. The foreign minister even revealed that, if necessary, their fighter jets will accompany Israel in its attacks targeting Hezbollah. It’s nice to have a friend as a neighbor.

Hamas

While the IDF is making so much headway in Gaza, Israel has encountered its moments of sadness. On Saturday, Hamas fired an anti-tank missile at an IDF military vehicle, killing eight soldiers inside. Three more IDF soldiers died in separate events in Gaza just hours later.

Sadly, on a day when Israel was brokenheartedly burying 11 of their sons who fell in the Gaza Strip defending the people and the land, the IDF announced that they would grant 11 hours of humanitarian ceasefire in the Rafah area to bring in hundreds of aid trucks for Hamas and its supporters. Sadly, it’s America who’s putting the pressure on Israel as they keep interfering and trying to micro-manage Israel’s war.
The eyes of Israel’s cabinet are on the northern border right now and they can’t afford any more halts or delays in US-made armament shipments. If that’s not enough, the Hamas cowards continue to use civilians as human shields wherever the IDF troops are operating in Gaza.

The IDF is expected to have full control of Rafah in the next couple of weeks.

The International Community

Haven’t heard of the Taliban in a while? Don’t worry – They’ve voiced to Iran recently that they’re prepared to send thousands of fighters to go to war against Israel should Iran be interested. Iran is ready to flood Southern Lebanon and Southern Syria with waves of human fighters from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and Yemen in any upcoming war on Israel’s northern front – and America knows it. Israel intercepted a suspicious projectile from the east just days ago. Guess what – It was a cruise missile launched by Iran’s Shiite militias in Iraq.

The United States

Don’t underestimate the spiritual importance of this years election! Strong demonic powers are active right now to try and bring our country down. The wars in the Middle East and Ukraine, and the failed immigration policies in America, Canada, Western Europe, and Australia all contribute to this picture. State-level cyberattacks and brainwashing tactics are being deployed by Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea.

As born-again believers, our hope is in Jesus and our citizenship is in heaven. Things may be deteriorating around us but, “God’s sovereignty is my sanity!”

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

 

The Ministry

Understanding the Old Testament is the key to making sense of the New Testament. What Daniel foretells; Revelation fulfills.

I believe you’ll find our upcoming class on the King of the North from Daniel 11 extremely helpful in understand God’s plans for the last days and I pray that it will enlighten many concerning the truth about the rise and reign of Antichrist.

Please take some time to read Daniel 11:36-45 with a good study Bible. This will help you to get the most out of our upcoming class on August 6.

You Are a Watchman

You can either take part in the evil world agenda or do your part to stand up against it. The fact that a person has a suicidal mindset doesn’t mean we need to assist him in carrying it out. The same is true with our fallen world. We have a responsibility!

We need to bring the light of the gospel and the hope of salvation to people! We need to live lives that reflect our faith. We need to make smart choices based on our strong convictions regarding family, sexual identity, the sanctity of life, and supporting Israel. If we say that as believers, we can’t or shouldn’t be involved in politics, it’s equal to running away from responsibility. This is especially true if that decision causes us not to vote! Remember: We are all watchmen! We’re aware of things on a spiritual level that the lost can’t discern.

The Lord said the following about the role of the watchman:

Ezekiel 33:3-6

“When he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.”

Prophecy Update Israel Prepared for Extended War

 

The IDF war in Rafah continues to escalate and stir the world’s ire! In a first since the ’67 Six Day War, Egypt exchanged fire with the IDF. The IDF has made its way into the heart of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip. The Hague revealed its true colors. Europe is recognizing a Palestinian state. What’s next?

Israel & Hamas

The IDF has made its way into the heart of Rafah – the last major Hamas stronghold in the southern part of the Gaza Strip. Tragically, more bodies of Israelis who were killed on October 7 and taken to Gaza continue to be recovered in this city. Being the cowards they are, Hamas leaders are content to dwell in their tunnels presenting the façade that hostages are alive in order to leverage some sort of deal with Israel. Of course, when their strategy fails, they blame Israel for their deaths.

Like the rest of Gaza, the city of Rafah sits atop hundreds if not thousands of terror tunnels under the city, which the IDF is progressively destroying. Along with blowing up the tunnels, the military is also terminating weapon-storage facilities, rocket-production sites, and much more along the way. It’s time to put an end to Hamas!

Despite Biden’s threats and the State Department saying it would take 6 months, Israel accomplished the safe removal of civilians from the city in a matter of weeks! While the Biden Administration is screaming, “But the civilians in Rafah…!” After removing the people of Rafah, Israel found rockets and other weapons everywhere they went. It’s safe to say that the opinion of the White House is not held in high esteem in Israel these days.

As you probably know by now, the Hague condemned Israel last week for their assault in Rafah. At the end of the day, this is meaningless. Israel will do what it needs to do to survive by dismantling Hamas to prevent future terrorist attacks. However, consider the darkness of the hour in which we live, as an international court condemns Israel for protecting its people, ultimately sympathizing with Hamas and terrorism in general! And yes, Hamas praised the decision! Oh, and by the way, yes, Hamas is continuing to kill the people of Gaza. And in case you’re still on the fence concerning UNRWA, it was in the tunnels inside of buildings constructed by UNRWA that the mutilated body of the German-Israeli woman, Shani Louk, was found. The UN and UNRWA are corrupt to the core!

As of Wednesday, the IDF obtained full operational control of the Philadelphi Corridor near Rafah. This is extremely significant because Hamas is now completely cut off from all sides. There is no way of escape. There are no incoming resources. As one source put it – this is the beginning of the end of Hamas in Gaza.

Egypt

In the wake of the deteriorating relations between Israel and Egypt, an unusual incident occurred between the IDF and the Egyptian army in the Rafah crossing area. Israel is conducting an investigation into the details of the incident, which may have significant political consequences.

Basically, Egyptian soldiers opened fire on IDF forces. Ultimately, one Egyptian soldier was killed. More revealing is the fact that, all along, we now find out how two-faced Egypt is being complicit in aiding Hamas in the transfer of weapons into Gaza! Reports are, Egypt has made 100’s of millions of dollars on bribes and weapons transfers from Palestinians wanting to leave Gaza and from Hamas smuggling weapons into Gaza over the last decade! It’s not just Hamas that’s a gang of thieves but also Egypt and those guilty of the money syphering scheme run all the way up to the top and point to the son of Egypt’s president Al Sisi.

Lebanon, Syria, & Hezbollah

Israel is continuing to conduct targeted attacks in Lebanon as Hezbollah’s presence thrives in the region. Northern Israel has experienced a host of air raid sirens due to more barrages of rockets being fired from Lebanon over the last week. Sadly, the terrorists successfully caused some damage to homes in the Galilee region. However, it’s almost a daily occurrence that the IDF is killing Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon.

Israel’s targeted attacks are not isolated to Lebanon, as they’re happening throughout Syria as well. Last week, Israel carried out a dramatic and remote bombing in the Alawite city of Banias on the Syrian coast (north of Tartus near the Russian base, the Khmeimim Air Base). Hezbollah trucks were bombed and there were casualties. Make no mistake, while Gaza is the largest terror base on the face of the earth, the largest war is yet to come – and it will be with Hezbollah.

Yemen & the Houthis

The Houthis continue to provoke violence in the region whenever and wherever they can. In the last week, they’ve claimed attacks on ships in various bodies of water, and they shot down another Reaper Drone belonging to the US military.

The United States and the Dock Flop!

The $320M dock in Gaza that American taxpayers provided – courtesy of the Biden Administration – was short lived, and may have met its end last week. The dock became dismantled by heavy waves and finally deteriorated and disappeared into the Mediterranean Sea. OOPS!!! The Biden dock which was a terribly bad idea turned out to be an embarrassing waste of US resources and now a metaphor for US foreign policy… a flop!

America should be far more concerned about what’s happening in our own country and our southern border than building a dock in Gaza! If what’s coming out of DC isn’t telling you everything you need to know, the terrible fruit coming from America’s college campuses ought to do the trick. If Al-Qaeda and the supreme leader of Iran are siding with what’s taking place on our college campuses, it’s a sneak preview into the decline of the American Empire.

The International Community

Last week, a handful of European countries were moving towards recognizing a Palestinian state. Sadly, what was moving last week is a reality this week, as Ireland’s & Spain’s governments chose to formally recognize a Palestinian state. I expect that others will follow suit. If that’s not enough, Spanish Deputy Prime Minister Yolanda Diaz called for a genocide of Jews in Israel saying, “We cannot stop. Palestine will be free from the River to the Sea.” Apparently, the Inquisition wasn’t enough.

Thankfully, there are countries like Denmark standing in opposition to this stupidity. Moreover, Greece has motioned to deport any foreign students who participated in anti-Israel protests.

October 7 was so barbaric that it either intimidated the free world into appeasement or inspired others to courage, such as Holland and Argentina. Regrettably, much of the West and Asia simply tried to stop Israel from defending its people from the savagery of the Islamic Jihadi’s. In doing so, they revealed their own corruption and cowardice. If only the world was united against evil, the Gaza war would be over by now.

Since the onset of Israel’s operations in Rafah, the IDF has uncovered more than 700 terror tunnel shafts belonging to Hamas – and over 50 tunnels that funnel into Egypt to the south. As you’re likely aware of by now, Israel’s decision to enter Rafah in a move to end Hamas and free the remaining hostages was not met with approval by a host of the international community. In fact, the IDF only made the decision to reveal its findings regarding the tunnels in Rafah for the benefit of the discussion in the Hague and the international justification for the action in Rafah.

Sadly, the bodies of more Israeli hostages were uncovered by the IDF in Rafah. The three bodies belonged to Yitzhak Gelernter, Amit Buskila, and Shani Louk. They expect more to be found. It’s worth noting that the Rafah situation could and likely will have negative ramifications regarding the relationship between Israel and Egypt.

Tragically, the Hague is maintaining its hypocrisy and ignorance when it comes to the survival of the Jewish state as it sympathizes with terrorists in Gaza. Apparently, the burning, raping, kidnapping, and slaughtering of over 1,200 Jews isn’t enough justification for what Israel is doing in Rafah, not to mention the fact that overwhelming evidence shows that Hamas oppresses its own people.

At this stage, over 800,000 Gazans have been evacuated from Rafah. 277 IDF soldiers have died since the ground operation in Gaza began.

Operations are continuing to take place in other locations throughout the Gaza Strip as well. A lot of military operations are becoming the norm in the area of Jabalia where the IDF has eliminated well over 200 terrorists so far. Dozens of others have been arrested for interrogation. The IDF claims this has been one of the most violent wartime locations so far. Not only are they operating in Gaza – they’re pursuing Hamas terrorists everywhere. Last week, the IDF also killed a senior member of Hamas near the Lebanon-Syria border and they’re also continuously active in Judea & Samaria (the West Bank).

Iran

Not only did Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi die in a helicopter crash this last weekend, but a number of other high-ranking Iranian officials were killed as well. From the perspective of the naive international community, Iran just suffered a massive blow. However, ask the common Iranian citizen, and you’ll experience a different story.

Raisi and others like him were and are passionate about terror, death, and oppression. This is why numerous Iranian citizens could be seen celebrating his death across social media following the crash. Don’t let the corrupt leadership and radical ayatollahs confuse you. They don’t represent the worldview and mindset of the vast majority of Iranians. To make matters worse, the US offered its condolences to Iran, accompanying several other countries.

Since the death of Raisi, Vice President Muhammad Mokhber has become the president of Iran until the next election cycle.

On another note, following Iran’s massive missile attack on Israel several weeks ago, the Islamic Republic has now vowed to join any future war that takes place between Israel and Hezbollah. We sure do live in prophetic times.

Hezbollah, Lebanon, and Syria

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) continues to carry out strikes in various places in both Lebanon and Syria as tension with Hezbollah increases in the region. While the tension in this region has been ever-present for quite some time, the consistency of military confrontations is increasing. Moreover, targeted attacks are becoming all the more prominent, which was seen as recent as last Friday when a senior Hezbollah commander was killed in a vehicle attack about 40km from the border with Israel. However, the rockets keep coming from the north, as Israel – in a single strike from Hezbollah – had approximately 75 rockets fired into the region of the Golan and Galilee, most of which were intercepted.

Another key target that was eliminated by the IAF was the commander of the rocket unit of Hezbollah. This took place in the coastal sector in Lebanon. His name was Qasem Skalawi. In addition to conducting multiple strikes in Southern Lebanon & Syria, the IAF has also remained busy intercepting a host of rockets, drones, and other aerial threats coming from their enemies to the north.

The Houthis & Yemen

It’s business as usual for the Houthis, as the Iranian-funded terror proxy in the Arabian Gulf continues to muster up chaos in the region. Most recently – aside from its periodic projectile launches towards Israel – the terror group hit an oil tanker in the Red Sea that was moving oil from Russia to China.

The International Community

Slovenia and other European countries – namely, Ireland, Norway, and Spain – have vowed to formally recognize a Palestinian state in the weeks ahead and they’re encouraging other countries to do the same. Now do you understand the spiritual blindness of the days in which we’re living? Over 1,200 innocent Israelis are murdered in cold blood and Europe believes if you butcher the Jews, you deserve to get a state!

United States

Unfortunately, like a reckless wave, the US administration has been all over the place regarding its position on the Israel-Hamas War. In public, team Biden voices support for Israel but behind the scenes the administration is anti-Semitic and possessing a deep dislike for Netanyahu and most often stands in the way of what Israel needs to do. Furthermore, it has become common for the Biden Administration to criticize Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his every move to eliminate Hamas. And when there’s an opportunity for the US to side with Israel, there are always strings attached.

Such is the case with the ongoing situation between Israel and the ICC. From various sources, Israel has information confirming that the US administration gave a green light to the ICC to move forward with asking for an arrest warrant against Hamas and Israeli leaders as if they are equal. If that’s not enough, the US administration is conducting talks with Iran in Oman where both sides agree that Netanyahu must be removed. The Biden administration is causing internal chaos and outside attacks on its best ally in the Middle East. Insane!

Wait on the Lord

Patience, endurance, and perseverance are virtues believers must have in this ever-changing and morally self-destructive world.

Isaiah 40:31 – “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

Israel At War

In retaliation against Iran’s historically large UAV, cruise missile, and ballistic missile attack of April 13, Israel was considering an alternative option other than the course of action they finally used against Iran. Netanyahu’s original plan was to destroy several nuclear sites in undisclosed different locations across Iran. However, in return for the US imposing strong sanctions on Iran, approving military actions against Rafah, and transferring financial aid to Israel, the Israeli government would hold off on its intended attack of Iran’s nuclear sites.

In the early hours of the morning, Israel struck. But instead of the massive retaliation expected, it was a tempered strike. Small quadcopter drones were sent into Iran to confuse the air defenses. These were followed by Israeli Air Force (IAF) jet fighters that fired supersonic, half-ton Rampage missiles at the Shikari base in Isfahan destroying the air defense systems deployed to protect the Natanz nuclear facility 100 miles away. Compared to what was originally discussed, it was certainly a minor strike.

Why didn’t Israel exploit this perfect opportunity to destroy Iran’s nuclear sites? There are two primary factors that led to them holding back. First, the US administration was dead set against it. If Trump was still in office, this last week would have been very different. Actually, under the previous administration, Iran never would have had the chutzpah to launch their attack to begin with. Prime Minister Netanyahu and his administration are dealing with an extremely complex international situation. While it is easy to say, just go in and blow Iran’s nuclear capabilities to pieces, there would be huge ramifications for Israel doing so. There will likely come a time when they will be forced to act alone, but we must understand the PM’s need to keep relations with the US strong. This is primarily true due to the second factor below.

Israel is already fighting a war, and that war is only going to get bigger. If you think that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are nearing the end because they’ve already worked their way through northern and central Gaza and are now ramping up to move into Rafah in southern Gaza, you are missing the bigger picture. Once they are done with Gaza in the south, they will need to turn their full focus onto Lebanon and Syria in the north and the West Bank. What they will find awaiting is a much better funded, much better trained, and much better weaponed terrorist military in Hezbollah. And they will also be facing multiple Iranian proxy militias in Syria. This is not the time they can say to their allies like the US, who are helping to supply munitions, “Forget what you say, we’re going off on our own.” Again, that day will come, but it is not today.

What benefits came from Israel tempering its response? The US House approved a foreign aid package on Saturday night that included $26 billion in wartime aid to Israel. Last Tuesday night, the senate approved that bill. Second, the US has signed off on Israel moving into Rafah to finish the work against Hamas. Finally, Iran has received the message from Israel, “Now you know that we have the capability to destroy your nuclear facilities any time we choose.”

We need to understand and respect the incredibly difficult waters through which Netanyahu and his cabinet must navigate.

 

The Middle East

Israel

Sunday saw two terrorists, one armed with a gun and another with a knife, attack IDF soldiers near Hebron. Both were killed. Later, a woman with a knife tried to stab soldiers at a West Bank checkpoint, and she too was killed. The next day, two Palestinians drove their car into a group of Israelis in Jerusalem, sending three pedestrians flying into the air. The terrorists then exited the car with a rifle, but, before they could fire, the gun jammed. Unable to hurt more people, the two assailants fled, only to be captured later. The three pedestrians received minor injuries. It is not just the steady barrage of rockets fired over the northern border that keeps tension high in Israel, but these ongoing terrorist attacks.

Gaza

The concentration of military forces east of Rafah has begun. This is a strong signal that ground maneuvers will be beginning soon. Egyptian officials read in on the plan report that Israel has a 2–3-week plan to move civilians out of the area north toward Khan Yunis before moving in. They will be prevented from going further north by the Netzarim Corridor. This is a buffer zone cutting Gaza in two. The IDF is expanding and modernizing this area in order to keep a strong military presence separating Gaza City from Khan Yunis and below.

One cry from the antisemitic left is that Israel is starving Gazans. But is that the truth? A news anchor for the ruling Palestinian faction wrote, Fatah, has accused Hamas on air of killing aid workers and stealing food in order to manufacture a food crisis in Gaza. The terrorists accumulated the aid into warehouses leading to “these crazy and unreal prices that no one can pay”, said the anchor. In the same way that Hamas shows its disregard for the Palestinian people by using them as human shields, it deliberately starves Gazans for political talking points.

Turkey, Qatar

Warnings are flying that Qatar is preparing to evict senior members of the Hamas political bureau from their cushy hotel rooms and from the entire country due to the terrorist group not negotiating in good faith for a return of the Israeli hostages. But these multi-millionaire terrorists need not worry about being forced to live on the streets. Turkey is waiting with arms wide open to welcome them in.

Following Turkish President Erdogan’s ridiculous comment last week equating Hamas fighters with Turkish freedom fighters, he enjoyed quality time with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh in Istanbul Saturday. Turkey is looking for influence in the Muslim world after many years spent outside of radical Islam. This is completely expected for all who know their Bibles. When the Ezekiel 38 Battle of Armageddon launches, Turkey will be there with Iran aiming all their weapons at Israel.

Northern Battle

Israel continues to hit Hezbollah targets in Lebanon in preparation for a likely war in the near future. Just recently, the IDF claimed to have hit approximately 40 targets in southern Lebanon, targeting storage facilities, weapons, and terrorist infrastructure. The day before, two Hezbollah leaders were killed in air strikes. Muhammad Khalil Atiya, a commander in the aerial unit of the group’s elite Radwan force, was assassinated in Azron. That same day near Tyre, Hussein Azqul, a major figure in Hezbollah’s air defense unit, met his end.

In response to the elimination of the two key Hezbollah figures, the terrorist group launched three drones toward Acre and Krayot in Israel. All three UAVs were intercepted by fighter jets. Along with the occasional drone attack, Hezbollah continues its steady dose of rockets flying over the border from Lebanon. Not to be outdone, the Iranian-backed proxy militias make their regular contribution of rockets fired from Syria.

University Protests

We all know that the one activity university students enjoy more than a raging frat party is a good old-fashioned protest. Unfortunately, what is taking place in colleges across the United States and Europe is not your parents’ march for equal rights or an end to the Vietnam War. Today we have the element of Antifa and professional protesters, and they are incredibly skilled at ratcheting up the violent tension of these crowds of ignorant, impressionable teens and young adults. Now we see that pressure beginning to burst. Whether it is at Columbia, Harvard, the University of Texas at Austin, USC, or any of the hundreds of other universities where the mobs are taking over, the police are facing overwhelming numbers of frenzied students. Many think they are doing a good thing, but they’ve been duped by those who know better and are masters at using lies and passion to create chaos. No one knows what this is going to look like in the days ahead, but we should be very concerned. I don’t see this just breaking up, because the provocateurs know that they have a very strong foothold.

We must also recognize that this is a spiritual battle. Satan hates what God loves. This is a direct assault by the enemy against the people that God has chosen to be His own. He is using his minions – the provocateurs – to do his bidding, whipping up vitriol against Israel. It is very important to recognize that this is bigger than just these protests. This is a well-planned global effort to stir up the demonic spirit of antisemitism for the last days! The anti-Israel rhetoric that these students have been hearing in their classrooms is being driven deep into their hearts through these protests. Sadly, for many, if not most, it will remain there for the rest of their lives.

One last comment about these protests. Whenever you are looking for root causes of nefarious activities, it is always good to follow the money. In the last twelve years, Israel-hating Qatar has given over $3 billion to American universities. China has given more than $1.7 billion; Saudi Arabia, $1.4 billion; Russia, $141 million; Turkey, $81 million; Lebanon, $21 million; and the Palestinian Authority, $1 million. When you look at the anti-American, leftist drivel being taught in US universities these days, all you need to do is – what? Follow the money!

Red Heifer Sacrifice

It should be noted that due to the ongoing war in Gaza the government of Israel has delayed the Red Heifer sacrifice until some time near June. Official information on the red heifer sacrifice is hard to find right now either from the government or the Temple Institute in Jerusalem. We’ll report developments as soon as we learn more.

FOTET Ministry

While the rebirth of the nation of Israel remains one of the most revealing signs of God’s prophetic timeline, so much is yet to come regarding the Jewish state.

Before the October 7 massacre in 2023, Israel was in an extremely divided state. Now, despite its newly united front, the nation is dealing with new wars on several fronts. The current circumstances have many wondering, What’s Next for Israel? Will there be war with Iran? Is peace on the horizon? Will the nations divide Israel? What does the future look like for the rise of Antichrist?

Register for our next class on June 18 for my Scripture-based teaching, “Living In The Last Days: God’s Plan Unfolding Before Us In 2024”, as I answer these questions and more!

Thank you so much for your love, prayers, and support during these crazy times. It’s a blessing to know that you are there lifting our arms up as we seek to bring the truth of God’s Word about what’s revealed for us in the last days!

Awaiting His Return!

Israel is preparing for an imminent direct attack from Iran; Tehran yet to decide, as Middle East remains on high alert!

Israel is preparing for a direct attack from Iran as soon as this weekend, according to a person familiar with reports. A person briefed by the Iranian leadership, however, said that while plans to attack are being discussed, no final decision has been made, says the Wall Street Journal today.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking from an air base in southern Israel, also on Thursday, vowed to respond directly against any attack on Israel. “Whoever harms us, we will harm them. We are prepared to meet all of the security needs of the State of Israel, both defensively and offensively.”

“And it came to pass in process of time, that the children of Ammon made war against Israel.”
Judges 11:4

What a week it has been. If there’s a biblical phrase that best describes the Middle East over the last week, it’s “wars and rumors of wars”. From the attack in Syria that killed multiple high-level Iranian personnel to the looming war with Hezbollah in the north to the imminent invasion of the IDF into Rafah in the Gaza Strip, the tension has reached unprecedented levels. If that’s not enough, Israel is making preparations for a potential and imminent confrontation with Iran.

What’s worse is that the United States, has become unreliable during Israel’s darkest hour since the nation was reborn in 1948.

Genesis 12:3a
“I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you…”

Joel 3:1-2
“For behold, in those days and at that time,
When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.”

Matthew 25:37-40
“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’”

At the time of Christ’s Second Coming, He will not ask anyone if they stood up for America or any other nation.

The Lord will only ask if they stood up for Israel.

In these historic times the enemy has deceived the Biden administration and America will end up paying a huge price.

Standing with Israel is not an option from God; it’s a commandment from God.

 

Israel

The tension is at an all-time high inside Israel as the war in Gaza rages on. Israel continues to receive threats from Iran, and they’re receiving strikes almost daily from Hezbollah on their northern border. War with Hezbollah is on the horizon. However, the aim of the IDF and Israel’s government is to finish business in Gaza first – specifically, the city of Rafah, which is the final stronghold of Hamas. And yes, regardless of what the world media is telling you, Israel is going to enter into Rafah soon and finish the job. Attacks are already happening there.

Maybe you’re thinking, won’t this isolate Israel all the more if countries pull their support due to Israel not achieving a ceasefire? To this, my response is twofold: 1) Hamas has rejected every ceasefire proposal put forth. 2) While it’s a shock to live through these biblical times, God revealed ages ago that Israel would one day be isolated from the rest of the world so that only He will intervene on her behalf. The God of Israel will make good on His promises.

 

Gaza & Hamas

One of the biggest complaints coming out of the UN and the global community has to do with the alleged death toll of civilians in Gaza. First of all, war is ugly, but the IDF does everything it can to minimize and avoid civilian fatalities. And let’s not forget that Hamas uses its people as human shields. They have perfected the act of cowardice. Secondly, it surfaced in a report on Wednesday that the Hamas-run organization responsible for keeping track of the death toll in Gaza couldn’t validate over 1/3 of the alleged deaths. Over 11,000 of the 30,000+ deaths could not even be verified.

On Tuesday, it surfaced that an Israeli attack killed three sons of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh and four of his grandchildren were killed. One would think there would be great mourning. This is not the case when you love death more than you value life. He thanked his nonexistent god for their martyrdoms.

The IDF continues to operate in multiple areas inside of Gaza at this time. Often, forces will temporarily remove themselves from some key locations, which causes the terrorists to come out of their holes, exposing them, leading to their elimination.

 

Lebanon, Syria, and Hezbollah

As mentioned, Israel can see a war with Hezbollah on the horizon – it’s only a matter of time. By God’s grace, Israel hasn’t had to deal with Hezbollah while they wrap things up in Gaza, which has allowed them time to move reinforcements up north and manufacture more ammunition and weapons.

 

Iran

In what’s not a surprise, the Islamic state of Iran continues to develop its nuclear program in pursuit of obtaining a nuclear weapon – something they’re no longer vague about. Iran also continues to strategically sow chaos in the Middle East through its proxies in the region. Furthermore, Israel is prepared to deal with a military confrontation with Iran any day now following the targeted killing of two Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) generals and five others associated with the terror organization. This happened when the Israel Defense Force (IDF) leveled an annex in Damascus, Syria, that belonged to the Iranian embassy. One of Iran’s personnel that was killed was in the decision-making circle for Hezbollah and played a crucial role in the planning of the October 7 massacre.

The Iranians know that if they attempt to attack Israel directly, their nuclear sites will enter the crosshairs of the IDF.

The United States

While periodic support for Israel is expressed from the US government, the current administration is flirting with a dangerous line concerning the jeopardizing of its relationship with Israel. Some of the more recent negative revelations coming out of the US include the decision to label products coming from “Jewish settlements in occupied West Bank”, increased pressure in the form of withholding aid if they don’t pursue a ceasefire in Gaza, and more. Commander of the US Central Command, General Michael E. Kurilla, is visiting Israel now to consult with top military officials in preparation for an attack from Iran.

Israel Takes Out The Consulate Of Iran In Damascus Syria With Stunning Daylight Airstrike That Killed Top Iranian General In The Process!

Iran’s consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus was flattened earlier this week in what Syrian and Iranian media described as an Israeli air strike, a startling apparent escalation of conflict in the Middle East that would pit Israel against Iran and its allies.

Right now, Israel is fighting wars on 3 fronts, all of them deadly serious.

First, Israel is still knee-deep battling Hamas in Gaza that’s been going on for 6 months now, and is about to escalate when the IDF moves into Rafah.

Second, Israel has near-daily, cross-border skirmishes with Hezbollah in Lebanon that seems to be growing more intense.

Lastly, Israel has been defending against terror attacks in the so-called West Bank through imbedded Iranian proxies which continue to escalate.

“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.”
Zechariah 12:2

In Damascus, in a daring daylight attack, with great precision, Israel leveled the Iranian consulate in Syria, and in doing so killed top general Mohammad Reza Zahedi.

The Jerusalem Post reports that “Zahedi is the highest-ranking Iranian killed since the current war started, even higher than Sayyed Reza Mousavi, who was killed in December. Besides his wide-ranging responsibilities for terror on Israel’s borders, he was the highest-level interlocutor for Tehran with Hezbollah.”

The Iranian Embassy in Syria said in a statement that “F-35 planes fired six missiles into the Iranian consulate in Damascus” which sits next to the Iranian Embassy.

I don’t think we will have to wait all that long until Iran responds, do you?

Israel, which has repeatedly hit Iranian targets during the six-month war in Gaza, declined to comment on the incident, following its usual practice. An Israeli military spokesperson said: “We do not comment on reports in the foreign media.”

Iran’s Tasnim news agency said five people were killed in the Israeli strike. Syria’s SANA state news agency reported an unspecified number of deaths and injuries.

Since the Iranian-backed Hamas’ attack on Israel on Oct. 7, Israel has ramped up airstrikes in Syria against Lebanon’s Iranian-backed Hezbollah militia and Iran’s Guards, both of which support the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad.

 

 

Iran Vows Revenge
Iran’s supreme leader openly threatens Israel, says ‘evil Zionist regime will be punished.’

The Iranian regime continues to threaten Israel with a strong response after one of its top generals, Mohammad Reza Zahedi, along with his deputy and several other high-ranking Iranian military officials, was killed in an Israeli airstrike on a building adjacent to the Iranian embassy in Damascus on Monday.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kanaani threatened an appropriate response without elaborating.

“The Islamic Republic reserves its rights to take reciprocal actions and will decide the type of reaction and punishment of the aggressor,” Kanaani stated.

Zahedi was a top commander in the Iranian elite Quds Force and is the highest-ranking Iranian official to be eliminated since the U.S. killing of the late Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani, in Baghdad in 2020.

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei openly threatened Israel.

“The evil Zionist regime will be punished by our courageous men. We will make them regret this and other crimes like it, by God’s power and strength,” Khamenei said.

Hezi Simantov, an Arab Affairs commentator for Israel’s Channel 13 news, described Zahedi’s significance to the regime’s broad regional terror proxy strategy, indicating that he was Iran’s point man in its relations with the Lebanon-based terrorist group Hezbollah.

“A very senior member of the Iranian hierarchy, he managed the entire operation of smuggling weapons from Syria to Lebanon. He was a very senior person who can be said to have given Israel a lot of headaches in the last twenty years for all his exploits in his involvement in terrorism. This is the most senior Iranian who has been eliminated so far since October 7 on Syrian soil,” Simantov stated.

In addition, Zahedi was in charge of various pro-Iran militias in Syria and had supported terror groups in Iraq which posed a threat to U.S. forces and interests in the Middle East.

While Tehran will likely respond to the elimination of its top commander, the Iranian regime’s options are limited.

Behnam Ben Taleblu, a senior fellow at the Foundation For Defense of Democracies (FDD), believes that Iran’s reaction will likely be restrained, taking into account its conventional military capabilities, which are relatively weaker than those of Israel and the U.S.

“While the Islamic Republic thrives on conflict, it still can ill afford an outright war. Despite this, prudence dictates that policymakers should not dismiss Iranian threats to respond as cheap talk. Evolving Iranian drone and missile capabilities are lowering the bar for the use of attributable force by Iran,” Taleblu wrote.

The elimination of the top Iranian general comes at a time when Tehran is reportedly focusing on completing its nuclear program while the international community is preoccupied with the wars in Ukraine and Gaza.

Syrian journalist Majd Kanaan doubts that Iran will dare directly initiate an attack against Israel.

“The Khomeini regime in Iran is experiencing its worst period. It is in unnatural humiliation and cannot respond, even though Israel is only a few hundred kilometers away from Damascus, and they have large forces stationed in the Syrian capital,” Kanaan told The Media Line.

“The most we will see is bombing some empty American bases in Iraq. This is all they can do,” he added.

Iran typically extends its influence and agenda through its regional proxies, such as Hamas, Hezbollah and the Houthis, which are all supported by Iran and already engaged in conflicts. Israel believes Iran may target softer sites outside of the Middle East, like Israeli embassies or Jewish institutions, and has heightened security at all of its embassies worldwide.

 

 

Hamas Has Ceased to Function in Most of Gaza, says Defense Chief

Hamas no longer functioning as a military force in most of Gaza, says Defense Minister Gallant, but adds the terror group still has four battalions still operational in Rafah.

The Hamas terrorist organization has lost its capacity to operate as a military fighting force in most of the Gaza Strip, Israel’s defense chief said Tuesday, while warning that the group remains a viable force inside the border city of Rafah.

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant (Likud) addressed a hearing of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Tuesday, briefing lawmakers on the status of the war, and the IDF’s ongoing efforts to return hostages taken by Hamas and other Gaza terror groups.

“Military pressure was and remains the main and most significant element in ensuring the return of the hostages,” Gallant said.

“The advanced stage we have reached in dismantling Hamas and the information that we have gained from terrorists, empower us at the negotiation table and enable us to make difficult decisions. I am committed to returning all the hostages to their homes.”

Gallant emphasized that Hamas has been effectively dismantled as a military force in most of the Gaza Strip, but still maintains four operational battalions in Rafah, the last Hamas stronghold in Gaza.

“Hamas is hiding in tunnels, they have lost command and control capabilities, the battalion frameworks in most parts of the strip have ceased to function.”

“The Hamas brigade in Rafah however, is still standing, with its four battalions. We will address this soon,” Gallant continued, alluding to Israel’s planned Rafah operation

The Defense Minister also said the Israeli military needs to increase its manpower, pushing for the recruitment of more Ultra-Orthodox Jews, as the government mulls a replacement draft law to address the status of Ultra-Orthodox yeshiva students.

 

 

Hamas leader-in-exile Ismail Haniyeh,
Doubles down on demands for total Israeli withdrawal from Gaza as condition for hostage deal

Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh on Wednesday ruled out a compromise with Israel for a hostage deal, doubling down on the terror group’s demands which Israel has already ruled out.

Speaking in a televised address marking Al-Quds Day, Ismail Haniyeh, chairman of the Hamas politburo in exile in Qatar, said the terror group would not agree to a hostage deal without the total withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza, the full return of Gazans to all portions of the Strip, an end to the security blockade of Gaza, expanded aid permitted into the coastal enclave, and the reconstruction of Gaza.

“We are committed to our demands: the permanent ceasefire, comprehensive and complete withdrawal of the enemy out of the Gaza Strip, the return of all displaced people to their homes, allowing all aid needed for our people in Gaza, rebuilding the Strip, lifting the blockade and achieving an honourable prisoner exchange deal,” Haniyeh said.

The terror chief accused Israel of continuing to “evade, resist” responding to Hamas’ demands.

Israel has offered a six-week truce and the release of hundreds of jailed terrorists, including a number of high-profile terrorists convicted of major offenses, in exchange for the release of approximately 40 Israeli captives held hostage in Gaza since October 7th.

There are a total of 134 Israeli hostages still in Gaza, though as many as half may no longer be alive, according to an Israeli official who spoke with Ha’aretz.

Israeli leaders, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, have repeatedly ruled out a permanent ceasefire and vowed to carried out the IDF’s much-anticipated ground operation in Rafah, the last remaining Hamas stronghold in the Gaza Strip.
