4 Horses of the Apocalypse
And the Palestinian Flag
2/9/24 By Tim Buck
These 4 colors — white, red, black, and green — also represent the Palestinian flag which is being displayed around the world and has become man’s greatest symbol of Jew hatred and calling for Muslims to exterminate the Jewish people from God’s land “from the river to the sea.”
These 4 apocalyptic colors are defiantly being waved all over the world in capitol buildings, along highways, airports, and in the most recent, pro-Hamas demonstrations around the world! They display the hatred for Israel that Jesus and the prophets warned about when the nations turn against Israel in the last days. This is today! Indeed, God Himself will lead these rebellious nations into a war against His people. Zechariah 14 prophesies a final sacking of Jerusalem with Antichrist capturing the Temple Mount just before Messiah returns, and the beloved nation looks on Him Whom they have pierced and mourns for Him as an Only Son.
The four colors that make up the Palestinian flag and wave at anti-Israel protests symbolize the Satanic world system that denies any divine, prophetic fulfillment about Israel or the still-to-be fulfilled prophecies of the Millennial reign of Christ in Israel to rule over the nations. In that day, there will be one capitol only and one king only and one religion only and it will be about the Lord Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
A study of the origin of these “Pan-Arab colors” is startling. Each of the colors was chosen during WWI, when the Holy Land was wrested from the Turks and the Ottoman Caliphate and put into the hands of the Brits. During that time, each of these Pan-Arab colors — white, red, black, and green — were chosen to represent the four historic caliphates of Islam listed above. Over the centuries, these Islamic dynasties fought some 548 battles, enslaving, destroying, slaughtering millions thus making the four colorful symbols a perfect choice by the spirit of Antichrist for the return and rise of Islam today and for their coming warfare against Israel.
Is it just a coincidence that the colors of the four horses in Revelation 6 are the exact same modern colors that are now waving on the flags of Israel’s enemies?
Leads Arab Summit
2/9/24 By Tim Buck
Five participating countries aim to raise pressure on Israel for a ceasefire by leveraging their willingness to assist in rebuilding Gaza and to integrate Israel into the region but assistance is contingent on a Palestinian state being immediately advanced by Israel.
Saudi Arabia hosted a summit of foreign ministers from five countries in the region on Thursday in order to advance a united Arab stance regarding the war in Gaza as well as political initiatives for when the fighting ends.
The Arab foreign ministers are slated to discuss efforts to expand pressure for a ceasefire in Gaza, leveraging their willingness to take part in the Gaza Strip’s rehabilitation after the war in addition to further integrating Israel into the region, on the condition that Jerusalem agrees to take steps creating an irreversible pathway to an eventual Palestinian state.
The gathering is the latest example of the united front that Israel’s Arab partners and potential allies are building, one that is increasingly at odds with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, which expects the war to continue for many more months until “total victory” is secured. On the other hand, the grouping of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia is offering Israel a partnership that could be used to more effectively combat Iran, which Netanyahu has long sought.
The meeting — which has not previously been publicized — will also be attended by Hussein al-Sheikh, a top aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas; as Riyadh continues to expand its cooperation with Ramallah, assuaging concerns that Saudi Arabia will abandon the Palestinian cause to boost its regional and global stature.
Joining Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan and Sheikh will be the top diplomats from Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, according to the diplomats.
The summit follows several covert meetings Riyadh organized over the past month for top national security officials from Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and the PA.
Is There More To The Colors
Than We Realize?
Horses are frequently used in the book of Revelation to depict warfare (9:9, 17; 19:14,18). The four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in Revelation 6, represent God’s judgment being released on mankind through the Hamas-like military conquests of Antichrist and his crushing Caliphate.
So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
Like Hamas, when the Caliphate rides forth it will be vicious and cruel on the people of Israel. The current Hamas invasion and slaughter of Jews is a foretaste of what’s coming. If Revelation was written today, instead of four horses the Apostle John could be using four colored tanks or four colored F-16’s. The symbolic use of horses is ancient but the colors are modern. A display of God’s foreknowledge and omniscience!
Hamas and the Palestinians are deceived with the Israel-hating, spirit of Antichrist that’s accelerating. The Palestinian Media Watch is a trustworthy source in exposing the hypocrisy, backwards, upside down, lying and demonic spirit of Hamas and the Palestinians. For American’s, it’s hard to wrap your head around pure evil but knowing the religious root behind it helps us understand it better!
Spirit of Hamas
2/8/24 By Tim Buck
On a recent Palestinian TV broadcast in the West Bank, that was released by PMW, the father of a terrorist killed in Gaza can be heard declaring that the Bible teaches that “only Jews are human – all others are not human.”
He further says, “We ask Allah to send people like Hitler, Nebuchadnezzar and Pharaoh.”
Palestinian Authority (PA), the government of the Palestinians in the West Bank, pours out non-stop Antisemitism that is both vicious and fundamental to PA and Hamas ideology. Their constant demonization of Jews, Israel, Jewish sources and traditions, has a very sinister purpose: It is the basis for hatred that justifies murder.
Put simply, once the Hamas and PA leadership convinces Palestinians that the Jewish/Israeli evil is innate to Jewish nature and endangers Palestinians and all humanity, Palestinians feel justified and even righteous about hating and killing Jews and even praying for Allah to bring another Holocaust.
Official Palestinian TV recently broadcast one of their hate libels about Jews and Judaism, that was put forth by the father of a terrorist. After complaining about his terrorist son’s home being destroyed, he explained that “love of revenge is innate for them [Jews]. They learned it in the Talmud and the Bible.” He then repeated additional libels that echo PA and Hamas Antisemitism about the evil belief of Jews, falsely claiming it is part of the Hebrew Bible.
A Palestinian State?
Incredibly, these are the people to whom Obama and Biden want Israel to believe in and become “peace-partners with!” And to whom most of the world’s leaders are demanding that Israel give up the West Bank for a Palestinian State.
The father continues, “Their biblical belief [the Jews] is that God created non-human beings in the form of humans. Only they are human, only Jews are human; the rest of humanity is not human. This is how they [Jews] think and this is how they behave.”
[Official PA TV, Jan. 24, 2024]
Note, the Bible teaches that all people are created in the “Image of God.”
Hamas and the PA taught that same libel about Jewish belief in its documentary about the evil nature of Jews:
“In Europe, the [Jewish] tribe established camps and residential areas, crowded ghettos in order to separate from other people out of arrogance and disgust for non-Jews… who according to their [Jews’] worldview are snakes… [The Jews] were hated because of their racism and their filthy behavior… They swear:… ‘Only we are people, and all the others are our animals.’”
[Official Fatah Facebook page, July 15, 2019]
Jews Deserve To Be Killed
The lies echoed by the father of the terrorist has practical implications: Since Jewish evil behavior is innate to Jewish belief, then the only solution is destruction.
Accordingly, the terrorist’s father then prayed that Allah should bring another Holocaust on the Jews and other punishments, bringing people like Hitler, Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, and Pharaoh. With this prayer, he was again echoing Hamas and PA religious teachings, that the Jews deserve their punishment from Allah, as they are “planning and systematically working to incite wars and strife in the entire world.” Because of this Allah sent Nebuchadnezzar to destroy the First Temple, then he sent the Roman General Titus to destroy the Second Temple, and then Hitler and the kings of Europe, and still the Jews did not learn their lesson.
Finally, the father of the terrorist, prayed for Allah to bring a new Hitler to torture the Jews:
“We ask Allah to send someone who will torture them like Hitler did, and before him Nebuchadnezzar [Babylonian king who destroyed the Temple] and before him Pharaoh [who enslaved them].”
This is the spirit of Hamas (the spirit of Antichrist) who wrestled control of Gaza away from the Palestinian Authority in 2007 because they said the PA was not anti-Israel enough and didn’t act strong enough to rid the land of Jews!
Palestinian Media Watch has been warning for years that the PA’s teachings and Antisemitism must be expunged from PA teachings and national ideology before any peace process can be undertaken.
See here Itamar Marcus’ recent presentation to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, showing the connection between Hamas and PA Antisemitism and the October 7 Hamas atrocities.

Hamas Military Leader and Spokesman Abu Obeida Announced That The Oct. 7 Attack on Israel Was Launched To Prevent The Red Heifers and to Stop Israel’s Jewish Temple! The Enemy Realizes the Time is at Hand!
Like it or Not (Hamas) the Red Heifer Purification Ceremony is Scheduled by Israel’s Orthodox Rabbi’s for this April’s Passover  to be Conducted on Their Sacred Land on the Mount of Olives… for ALL THE WORLD TO SEE!

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!
The Day That Changed
1/5/24 By Jan Markell
Edited By Tim Buck
The world has been in an uncontrollable rage since October 7, 2023. We are witnessing global Israel Derangement Syndrome and renewed anti-Semitism more brutal than the 1930s. And towards whom is the rage directed? Towards those who were invaded, slaughtered, and kept as hostages.
Imagine worldwide hatred against innocent victims and global sympathy for barbarians because Israel supposedly stole land. So, now we see, the false notion of occupied land has become the end-time provocation for turning against Israel.
God’s land is not occupied territory. Jesus did not live in occupied territory. God owns it (Leviticus 25). He permanently gifted it to the Jews (Genesis 15).
The World Calls Evil Good!
Following the attack, the logic said that sympathy would eventually shift towards those who suffered the unspeakable blow, since many victims were women, children, and the elderly. Apparently not. The world stage featured, over several weeks, millions of people in global demonstrations on behalf of the terrorists—Hamas! Talk about a classic case of calling evil good (Is. 5:20).
For months, the world was given a sickening overdose of, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” In reality, this catchy phrase is a call for the genocide of the Jewish people. Participants in global demonstrations appeared to be many mind-numbed young robots, most not knowing any facts on the ground. Facts didn’t matter.
This was a conflict of the oppressed versus the oppressor. The so-called Palestinian was the classic representative of the world’s oppressed. Israel was the Goliath who needed to be punished and exterminated as all oppressors must be.
Brainwashed Agitators from the Tik Tok Generation
The demonstrators, in two-dozen nations, are ignorant concerning the history, as well as the geographical and political implications of the Mideast. What the Bible says is irrelevant. The rabble-rousers know nothing of Israel’s endless concessions over the decades to her Islamic neighbors, all in the name of peace.
They know nothing of the 2,000 years of wandering, persecution, and endless attempts by Kings, generals, Fuhrers, potentates, and presidents, to wipe out the memory of Israel’s existence. The brainwashed agitators are feeding off of social media propaganda, swallowing the lies like they were candy, and impressing their friends with how tolerant and justice-minded they are.
They are naïve and cannot comprehend that those they are championing, celebrating, and defending, would obliterate them in a heartbeat, in just as brutal a manner, as they incinerated Israelis on October 7, 2023. And again, for no reason other than to exercise their barbarism against the enemies of Islam.
- Revelation 13:15 ,“And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.”
- Qur’an Sura 9:111a, “[Allah] hath purchased of the believers [Muslims] their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause and slay and are slain.”
- Revelation 9:11, “Their king is the angel from the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon – the Destroyer.”
- Qur’an Sura 9:29-30, “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day … nor acknowledge the religion of [Islam], even if they are of the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] … may Allah destroy them.”
Those Israelis in southern Israel were championing the people of Gaza! The Israelis were there to benefit the Gazans—to employ them, take them to appointments, and more. They lived and believed the liberal lie: That we can befriend monsters and make them like us. That Islam is not so bad, in fact. We can all get along.
- Qur’an Sura 8:59-60, “Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them.”
Rushing Towards the Time of Jacob’s Trouble
So, let’s look at this from a spiritual perspective. We are in a run-up to the Tribulation—the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. The Jews are the primary player in that horrific drama. The raptured church is enjoying heaven. The Jews are Jacob; believers are the bride.
Satan longs to defeat God’s end-time plan, which seriously trounces him. Whether it’s Sennacherib, the King of Assyria, or Haman, from Persia, they plot and scheme. Whether it is Hitler or the Iranian mullahs, they never cease their plot to eliminate all Jews. The persecutors will come and go, but the persecution will remain until Jesus returns in the Second Coming!
As the people of Israel get more and more war-weary, as they tire of relying on fences that fail and agreements that are broken, sooner or later they will accept the cunning lies of Antichrist who comes on the scene right before the start of Daniel’s 70th Week. They sign a fateful agreement as outlined in Daniel 9:27, not realizing this is Antichrist who will eventually turn on them in an attempt to fulfill Satan’s plan of the ages: the extermination of every Jew, to foil God’s end-time plan.
Satan has plans to fulfill a 3-fold plan in order to foil God’s plan before Jesus returns at His Second Coming. His strategy is to 1) Kill as many Jews as possible so not enough Jewish people remain on earth for King Jesus to rule over, 2) Take full control of the promised land so Israel no longer controls the land for Jesus to build His kingdom on and lastly 3) Build a massive Muslim war machine able to kill Jesus (again) when He returns.
The Genie is Out of the Bottle!
What happened on October 7, 2023, is not just “one more Mideast conflict.” It was inspired by demons, and it unleashed demons on the world. The perpetrators were demon-possessed. The facts on the ground are clear evidence of that. In the natural, mankind cannot dream up such brutality. Satan can.
A genie was let out of the proverbial bottle. Something ominous spread all over the world in October of last year. It has apocalyptic overtones. You can’t put it back in the bottle! Our world was forever changed.
And all of this hatred against a people who have been a blessing to the earth! A people who gave us the Prophets, the Apostles, the Messiah; in fact, salvation itself is of the Jews (John 4:22).
Spitting in the Apple of God’s Eye
In spite of such blessings, there are entire denominations that are standing with those who perpetrated the worst massacre of the innocent in recent history. They worship social justice. They teach that the church is the new Israel (Replacement Theology). They major in minors and lead the flock astray. They fly rainbow flags in front of their church. They spit in the “apple of God’s eye” (Zech. 2:8).
I end with a quote from Dr. Natan Kellerman:
“There is something unprecedented about the European Holocaust. For the first time in the bloodstained history of the human race, a decision was birthed in a modern state, in the midst of a civilized continent, to track down, register, mark, isolate, dispossess, humiliate, concentrate, transport, and murder, every single person of an ethnic group as defined by the perpetrators.
“This was targeted at an ethnic group who so generously contributed to the culture of the world; to a people who have borne the brunt of enmity toward them because they dared to be different, and dared to insist on their difference.”
Is it 1938 again?
Over 1,400 Israelis (326 soldiers) have been killed, and over 5,400 have been injured.
The IDF has notified families of 240 being held hostage in Gaza.
To date, the IDF has struck over 11,000 Hamas targets.
Over 8,100 Rockets have been fired by Hamas toward Southern and Central Israel from Gaza (over 500 failed launches have fallen inside Gaza), with Lebanon and Syria also firing from the north.
One day after the 50th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War, on Oct. 7th, thousands of Hamas gunmen Invaded southern Israel, kidnapping, raping, torturing, and killing Israelis, specifically targeting women, children, and the elderly.
On Oct. 8th, the Israel Security Cabinet voted to officially declare war for the first time since the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
The Surrounding Nations
11/3/23 By Tim Buck
Please pray for Israel, the hostages and for the Lord to continue to give the government wisdom as they fight such evil!
Israel’s actions meet that “necessary and proper” criteria to protect the innocent and eradicate evil. This war is becoming a global event, and stirring the world against the Jewish people once again!
The Israeli ground assault is continuing in Gaza. The plan is to cut the Gaza Strip in two, which will allow the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to wrap around and eventually surround Shifa hospital – the main hospital in Gaza. Now, New York Times, before you start saying, “See, we told you that Israel likes to bomb hospitals,” let me tell you why they are doing that. Within that hospital compound, built both above and below ground, are Hamas’s main headquarters. If Israel really didn’t care about civilians, they would have dropped a few bunker buster bombs on the Shifa property and been done with it. Instead, they are making a risky maneuver so that they can target Hamas terrorists, all the while announcing what they are going to do so that the hospital and the surrounding area can be emptied of civilians. Once again, we see the difference between Hamas and the IDF. Hamas targets innocent civilians. The IDF warns civilians so that they can escape. The reason non-combatants are killed is because Hamas forces them to remain behind to maintain the human shield, and so that they can use their bodies afterward as propaganda for the world’s media.
Gaza has had billions of dollars poured into it. Where has it all gone? First, to the Hamas leaders. Hamas Deputy Chairman Mousa Abu Marzuk is worth $3 billion, former Chairman Khaled Mashal is worth $4 billion, and current Chairman Ismail Haniyeh is also worth $4 billion. It’s understandable, though, because it takes a lot of money to pay for their luxury housing in Turkey and Qatar. I mean you couldn’t expect them to live in Gaza amongst the riff-raff, could you? Most of the remaining money went to the construction of an intricate, multi-leveled system of 1300 tunnels that stretch for 500 kilometers (311 miles) and reach 70 meters deep (229 feet).
The flaw in this tunnel system is that it needs gas for generators to power the ventilation system. So, while there is food and water in Gaza, as well as electricity in most areas, gas is very difficult to find. This is because the IDF has confiscated all the gas they can find. No gas, no ventilators. No ventilators, no air. No air, the terrorists will be forced to scurry out of their holes where they will surrender or be killed.
Lebanon and Syria
Iran desperately wants their militias in southern Syria to do something directed at Israel. But so far there has only been the occasional rocket or artillery fire. Hezbollah in Lebanon is receiving the same pressure from Iran. The skirmishes across the Lebanese/Israeli border have been more intense that those with Syria but have still mostly been in the form of rockets and airstrikes. However, there have been border breaches that had to be dealt with by the IDF.
Hassan Nasrallah, secretary-general of Hezbollah, has announced that he will make a very important speech Friday at 3:00 PM. The speculation is that he will declare Hezbollah’s entrance into the war.
This would be unfortunate for two reasons. First of all, the Lebanese don’t want war. Most civilians in Lebanon are good, hard-working people who are in the unfortunate situation of having their country commandeered by a terrorist organization whose puppet strings are being pulled by Iran’s radical Islamist regime. Maybe this will be the catalyst for the people to finally rise up and oust Hezbollah.
The second reason Nasrallah should think carefully before entering the fray is that him doing so would be a fatal mistake. Because of the organization and training of Hezbollah, it would likely take more Israeli lives to end Hezbollah. But rest assured, by the time the IDF has finished, there would be no more Hezbollah and no more Hassan Nasrallah. Last night, Ismail Qaani, commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), visited Beirut, likely to discuss Hezbollah’s involvement in the next phase of the war.
Please pray that this front does not open wide.
The Houthis of Yemen have declared war against Israel. You may wonder why this 50,000-strong rebel army based 1000 miles away from Israel is declaring war. Because they, too, are funded and directed by the ayatollahs in Tehran. These extremist Shiites have long-range ballistic rockets, and they have fired them at Israel. At least one was destroyed by a US Navy ship. Another was taken out while still in space by Israel’s new Arrow-3 hypersonic anti-ballistic missile system. So far, they have just fired missiles at Israel. But if one of those ballistic missiles finds its target, there will be mass casualties.
What do all of Israel’s enemies have in common? A connection to Iran. The Iranians have a superiority complex when it comes to their fellow Middle Easterners. If there is dirty work to be done, they would much rather it was Arab hands that did it. Their Persian hands are too finely manicured for grunt work. That is why they created the militias. Hezbollah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Houthis, Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada, and all the others, they are all the Persians’ fighting force, because it’s no use spilling Iranian blood when there are so many Arabs just hanging around. I know my words sound harsh and incredibly callous, but they are one hundred percent accurate when it comes to the attitude of the Islamist regime in Tehran. If Hezbollah and the militias in Syria attack from the north, Israel knows who will be behind it. When the time is right, there will be a reckoning.
The Egyptian government is finally opening a field hospital on their side of the Rafah crossing. What they are not doing is opening wide their gates to an influx of Gazans. Why? Because they know the violence and trouble that comes with them. The Egyptian prime minister is so determined to keep Gazans out of the country that he recently said that he is prepared to sacrifice millions of lives to protect the border from Palestinians. When it comes to relations with Israel, there continues to be the same surface coolness between the two countries. Yet, behind the scenes there is secret cooperation.
Jordan remains at peace with Israel. Their concern is with the missiles in Syria and Iraq, and they have asked the US to deploy Patriots to protect the skies above their country.
Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Bahrain
Each of these countries has made it clear that the Abraham Accords are here to stay. Both Russia and Iran want to drive a wedge between the Saudis and Israelis because of energy, but their ploys are not working. The UAE indicated that a strong relationship with Israel is “our future”, while the Bahrainis said keeping a relationship with Israel is in their common interest.
United States of America
The US has been Israel’s best friend through this fight, and we are very grateful for the help. Unfortunately, American bases in Syria and Iraq are paying the price. On an almost hourly basis, Iranian militias are attacking the US military with rockets and suicide drones, and the American casualties are mounting. As concerning as these developments are overseas, we need to be worried for the US mainland. So many terrorists have merged into the constant immigrant flow, and now the FBI has announced that they are very nervous about attacks taking place in US cities that are inspired by what Hamas did on October 7. There is also a new cultural divide taking place between virulent Palestinian supporters and those who criticize the horrors that Hamas perpetrated. Much of this ignorant hatred is originating in American academia and media.
There is a massive division between Europeans and the enormous Muslim population that now exists in their cities due to an open border policy. The tension between the old guard and the newcomers is getting stronger. For so long, European governments refused to admit there was a problem, but as Ayn Rand once said, “You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality.” I’m afraid that those consequences are just around the corner. It well may be the war in Israel that pushes Europe over the brink. As the anti-Israel protests swell and the number of Jewish houses that are being spraypainted with Stars of David grows, it is very likely that some flashpoint will occur which will set the streets on fire.
On paper, Turkey and Israel are allies. But President Erdogan wants to be the leader of Islam so he is currently leading the pack in rallying Muslims worldwide to condemn Israel. Just this past week at a massive rally celebrating Turkish independence, he took the opportunity to go on a very antisemitic rant, including making it clear that he didn’t consider Hamas to be a terrorist organization and that Israel is guilty of war crimes and must be prosecuted.
Jewish People Around the World
Hollywood Jews had a very bad day last week when they suddenly woke up and realized that being liberal and progressive is not enough. Many discovered that their friends had begun to abandon them for the sin of being Jewish. They thought that the world was beyond hating Jews just because they are Jews. But the world was just taking a little break. Now antisemitism is back in vogue. In Germany, cases of antisemitism have risen 240%; in Austria, 300%; US, 400%; South Africa, 720%; and the UK, 1351%.
There is a dark cloud covering the world right now. Standing with Israel is soon going to exact a price. It may be relational. It may become physical. What we are seeing is symptomatic of the growing influence of the enemy. It is truly diabolical, and you will not understand it until you put your spiritual glasses on. But it is what we as believers expect because we know that this world is being prepared for the Tribulation.
You do not want to be around when that happens, because it will be a period when God’s judgment will come down upon this world. It will be a time unlike any other, when the Lord sets out to discipline His people and punish those who have rejected Him. But you don’t have to be here. The Bible tells us that salvation is a matter of believing and receiving Jesus as your Lord and Savior. If you want to know more about how to become a follower of Jesus, follow this link.
Thank you, and may God bless you for standing with the Jewish people and praying.
