It appears that Israel has decided to up their game after Iran recently announced they have reached nuclear breakout and have enough enriched uranium to build a nuclear bomb. Iran continues to deliver weapons by the ton across Syria under the eye of Israeli intelligence.

This is the second time in 5 days Israel bombed Iranian armament targets arriving at the airport. But in an obvious show to the Iranian regime and the world, this time they took out most of the airport including the air traffic tower, runways and facilities.

Syria halted flights to and from Damascus International Airport “until further notice” on Friday after Israeli air strikes damaged the airstrip and terminal, the transport ministry said.

The airport is located south of the capital Damascus where Syrian opposition activists say Iran-backed militiamen are active and have arms depots. Israel has for years carried out strikes in the area but nothing quite like this one.

It looks like Israel and Iran have reached an impasse and have come to the point of no return. War appears to be the only possible solution at this point and it may be closer than we think!

Join us next Tuesday as we discuss how Biden has betrayed Israel and we look more closely at the Iranian regime and the prospects for war.

Biden Doctrine and the End Times

White House at War
With Israel

May 9, 2022 by Tim Buck

In an effort to illustrate how the Biden administration is leap-frogging us through the last days, (in every-way possible: political, moral, financial, education, Israel, Iran, Russia, Middle East, etc.), our next teaching on June 21 will share current events and the prophesies of Daniel to reveal the disturbing ways the White House is turning against the Lord and Israel and aligning with the last-day trends of Bible prophecy.

To support the class topic, I will be bringing a series of articles on the Biden Doctrine and how it’s accelerating prophecy so fast! By necessity, some articles will be political and some will be prophetic!

With Biden at the helm, uncertainty clouds America’s future. But “God’s Sovereignty is My Sanity” needs to be our posture as we race toward the finish line. Please pray for Focus on the End Times ( as we speak the truth about what’s going on! Articles are always permanently posted to our website. 

Joe Biden is at War with Israel.

You don’t have to look too far to find jaw dropping examples of his treachery toward the Jewish State. From his, “Hostile-to-Israel Appointees,” to his upcoming, planned trip to Israel next month where he plans to visit East Jerusalem in a shameless show of support for dividing Jerusalem and taking the side of the Palestinians over Israel.

The scheduled trip has political implications because an American president, specifically visiting the eastern part of the Israeli capitol, in fact, ‘divides Jerusalem.’ It’s a powerful statement of turning against the Trump doctrine who declared, “Jerusalem is the undivided and eternal capital of Israel.”

Even Democratic presidents Clinton and Obama have not gone so far as to pay a visit that expresses a lack of recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem.

The words of the prophet Zechariah above are coming to pass before our eyes. The enemies of Israel that live inside the Jewish state and the enemies that surround Israel are getting more restless by the minute as they sense weakness in the Biden doctrine for support of Israel. Israel is facing terror attacks like never before with a total of 21 Israeli’s murdered in the last month.

The demons are stirring and Northern Israel is preparing for war. All because of weakness in the White House.

The IDF realizes that they now stand alone, without Biden, and launched the largest military exercise in Israel’s history Sunday, which is expected to run throughout the month of May! The exercise, dubbed “Chariots of Fire,” will simulate “a month of war” for the first time in Israel’s history and practice maneuvers to combat the country’s most dangerous enemies.

The Lebanon-based Shiite Hezbollah terrorist group has placed itself on high alert ahead of these maneuvers, Lebanese media reported.

Amid the deadly terror wave, Israeli Prime Minister Bennett has called for the creation of a civil National Guard designed to protect Israel’s interior cities from further Arab uprisings and terror attacks. In addition, Israel announced it will begin to “assassinate Hamas leaders in Gaza if the terror attacks continue.”

Ukraine Lessons for Israel! Biden Makes Anti-American Nations Great Again!

Ukraine’s Lessons For Israel

By Caroline Glick
Edited by Tim Buck

In the months and weeks that led up to Russia’s Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine, Western powers signaled clearly that they were prepared to accept the disappearance of Ukraine as an independent state.

U.S. President Joe Biden virtually invited Russian President Vladimir Putin to invade in late January when he said that a “minor incursion” would leave NATO flat-footed. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, like his predecessor Angela Merkel, served as the Kremlin’s unofficial spokesman in Europe.

But once Russian forces invaded, the West’s plans to yell a bit and look away went awry. The Ukrainians failed to play their assigned role of Paschal lambs. Instead, they rallied around their flag and their president, Volodymyr Zelensky.

For his part, Zelensky captivated the hero-starved West. His rejoinder, when the Biden administration offered to evacuate him from Ukraine on the second day of the war, “I don’t need a ride, I need ammunition,” reminded Americans of a time when they weren’t being attacked for being transphobic or systemically racist, a time when patriotism was permitted.

Once Americans and other Western audiences got a whiff of Ukrainian nationalism, it became politically impossible for Washington, Brussels, Berlin, Paris and London to turn their backs on Kyiv. And so, with little deliberation, Biden and his European counterparts announced a series of unprecedented financial and economic
sanctions on Russia and massive shipments of arms and humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

For a moment, it was possible to wonder whether Russia’s reminder that the problems of the world cannot be reduced to the pronouns one uses or the amount of carbon one burns on an average day would change the focus of Western elites. But it was not to be. The ruling classes in Brussels and Washington made clear that the war in Ukraine would not steer them off course.

While Poland is giving refuge to nearly two-thirds of the 3 million Ukrainians who have fled their homes, and Hungary has taken in 10% of them, the E.U. parliament passed economic sanctions against both nations last week. Their crime? The nationalist governments in Warsaw and Budapest refuse to toe Brussels’ line on Muslim immigration and LGBTQ indoctrination.

As for the Biden administration, Ukraine’s fight for national survival in the face of Russian aggression is all well and good. But appeasing Iran is the Biden administration’s top priority. And Biden can’t appease Iran without Russia. So to keep Russia on board with his administration’s efforts to close a deal with Iran, Biden agreed to cut Russia’s lucrative business with Iran out of the sanctions.

Russia can expect to receive $10 billion developing Iran’s nuclear installations and billions more in arms sales. The implications for Ukraine are clear: The US is willing to let them fight the Russians, but will not help the Ukrainians defeat Russia, because the United States cares more about empowering Iran than helping Ukraine survive.

The deal that Biden is concluding with Iran is itself a stunning testament to the radicalism of the Biden team and its refusal to let reality interfere with its policies. It will provide Iran with $90 billion from sanctions relief. That astronomical sum guarantees massive cash infusions into the coffers of Iran’s in-house global terrorist organization–the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, which Biden is set to remove from the State Department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations–and to Iran’s terror armies in Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, Syria and the Gaza Strip.

Iran will have the funds to expand its missile and drone capabilities. And thanks to the lax restrictions it will face on its nuclear operations, it will become a nuclear threshold state by 2025 at the latest.

Although the West’s progressive agenda necessarily limits the support it is willing to provide Ukraine, the West’s ruling classes need to placate their publics, who admire Ukraine, compelling them to provide significant if not determinative military, humanitarian and political assistance to Kyiv. And given Ukraine’s willingness to fight it out with Russia, that support may be sufficient to enable Ukraine to withstand Russia’s assault for long enough to maintain its independence.

The widespread assessment today is that the Ukrainians will be able to continue fighting, despite Russia’s clear military superiority, for another month or six weeks. Given the high losses the Ukrainians are inflicting on the Russians, and assuming that the Russians begin to feel the full impact of the economic and financial sanctions within the next two to three weeks, it is possible that by mid-April, the Ukrainians will be able to negotiate ceasefire terms with Russia that will leave the country independent and more or less intact.

There is a moral to this story for Israel.

Ukrainians can still hope for and expect a future of freedom and independence because they have refused to bow before either Russia or to the West.

If Israel were paying attention to the dynamics at work in the West’s behavior towards Ukraine, it would be adopting policies opposite to those it is currently pursuing, both in relation to Ukraine and Russia and in relation to the West.

Unlike Zelensky, who hasn’t hesitated to call the United States and Germany out for their fence-sitting, the Bennett-Lapid-Gantz government has subordinated all Israeli policies to the Biden administration’s agenda.

If Israel were putting its own interests first, as Zelensky has, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett wouldn’t be trying to mediate between Zelensky and Putin. Instead, Israel would make do with a simple but clear message: Israel supports Ukraine’s sovereign independence and territorial integrity and calls on Russia to end its offensive operations.

Israel ought not and need not go beyond that statement.

The reasons for this are obvious. This is not Israel’s war, and words have consequences. Israel cannot mediate this conflict because it has no leverage over either actor to persuade them to compromise.

As for the significance of words, in order to succeed, a mediator has to be perceived by both sides as someone who accepts the basic legitimacy of their positions. But as a threatened democracy, it is a dangerous proposition for Israel to accept Russia’s view that Ukraine has no right to exist as an independent and distinct nation-state.

When the next round of “mediation” between Israel and the Palestinians begins, how will Israel be able to demand that any prospective mediator reject out of hand the Palestinians’ position that the Jewish state has no right to exist?

This brings us to the second policy Israel should be adopting in the face of the war in Ukraine. Israel should be devoting all of its efforts on the ground to rapidly facilitating the mass aliyah of Ukrainian Jewry. As it stands, there are 10,000 Ukrainian Jews waiting to make aliyah.

Instead of processing their applications, the Foreign Ministry is giving them appointments at consulates and embassies in Warsaw, Budapest and Bucharest three and six months from now and filling planes with non-Jews instead. Non-Jewish Ukrainians, it bears noting, have no problem resettling in the countries bordering Ukraine and throughout Europe. Yet, as 10,000 Ukrainian Jews are forced to wait for months to come to Israel, 10,000 non-Jewish Ukrainians have been airlifted to Israel.

This brings us to Israel’s real problems–Iran, the Palestinians and the Biden administration.

Zelensky’s fierce defense of his country, and the Ukrainian people’s refusal to stand down in the face of Russia’s advance, have compelled the Biden administration to support Ukraine even at the risk of a world war because the Ukrainians are standing for the values of freedom and independence that the United States is supposed to personify on the world stage.

If Israel were to take a page from Ukraine’s playbook, its leaders would be attacking the immorality of the Biden administration’s capitulation to Iran’s demands in the appeasement talks in Vienna.

The Bennett-Lapid-Gantz government’s silence in the face of Biden’s abdication of moral and strategic leadership in the Middle East undermines the efforts of Israel’s supporters in Congress and the international community. The Republicans, for instance, are compelled to explain why they are more opposed to Biden’s capitulation to Iran than the Israeli government is.

Then there are Israel’s Arab partners. The Saudis and the Emiratis have been more outspoken in their opposition to Biden’s Iran policies than Israel. The Arab leaders in the Gulf look at the silent, supine Israeli government in astonishment and distrust. The strategic consequences are already tangible. Rather than redouble their cooperation with Jerusalem, the Saudis and the Emiratis are setting their sights on Moscow and Beijing.

The situation with the Palestinians is also disturbing, and speaks clearly to the destructive implications of Bennett’s decision to play mediator between Russia and Ukraine.

Two weeks ago, Congress passed an omnibus spending bill, which Biden signed. With AIPAC’s support, the bill contained a section on Israel that significantly downgraded the U.S. commitment to the Jewish state.

The section on Israel was an amended version of a law that passed initially in 2012, and required the United States to “assist” and “support the Government of Israel” in its ongoing talks with the Palestinians. The new law deleted the part about supporting Israel. Under the new law, the United States is obligated to support “a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict resulting in two states living side by side in peace, security, and mutual recognition.”

In other words, under the amended law, the United States is committed to supporting the establishment of a Palestinian state, whether Israel supports it or not.

Sen. Ted Cruz has fought since last July to block the passage of this amendment because he recognized the damage it was liable to do both to U.S.-Israel ties and to Israel’s national security. The Israeli Embassy, on the other hand, was less concerned.

Senate sources explain that Israel’s diplomats were nowhere to be found as Cruz fought adoption of the amendment.

The worst aspect of the amended law is that it wasn’t initiated by the usual anti-Israel forces in the so-called “Squad.” AIPAC supported the amendment, and so did mainstream Republican senators, like the ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, James Risch, and Sen. Rob Portman.

The implications are clear. When Israel opts to remain silent as its interests and position are undermined, not only does it strengthen its enemies, it loses its friends.

After Russia invaded Ukraine, many Ukrainians told Israeli reporters on the scene that they were inspired by Israel, which has always fought its own battles and survived even in the face of global indifference and hostility. Today, the opposite should be the case.

Israel’s government must learn from the Ukrainians. The West will not fight for a threatened democracy. States that wait for green lights from the West to defend themselves will not survive. But states that defend themselves will see sufficient forces rally to their side to enable them to persevere and survive.

Russian Oligarch Yacht

Parked in Turkey

A Russian pair of yachts belonging to Chelsea soccer club owner and sanctioned Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich have docked at resorts in Turkey, according to the Associated Press.

Turkey has not imposed economic sanctions on Russia over its invasion of Ukraine last month, nor has it frozen assets belonging to top Russian businessmen linked to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The private DHA news agency said Tuesday the Bermuda-registered Eclipse docked in the resort of Marmaris.

A day earlier, Abramovich’s Bermuda-flagged luxury yacht My Solaris arrived in the nearby resort of Bodrum, triggering a protest by a group of Ukrainians who boarded a small motorboat and tried to prevent the yacht from docking.

NATO member Turkey has close ties to both Russia and Ukraine. It has criticized Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine but has also positioned itself as a neutral party trying to mediate between the two.

Israel is Opening Again!!

Tourists Allowed Into Israel From March 1 Regardless of Vaccination Status

Tim Buck

Tourists of all ages will be allowed into Israel regardless of vaccination status starting from March 1, subject to a negative PCR test before takeoff and after landing, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced Sunday.

The decision was announced following a meeting between PM Bennett and Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz, with the participation of Tourism Minister Yoel Razvozov and several others, in which they finalized an outline for the easing of coronavirus restrictions in Israel.

Alongside the decision to reopen the country to both vaccinated and unvaccinated tourists, the new plan will see the end of isolation policies for unvaccinated Israelis entering the country, subject to a negative PCR test upon arrival.

We are praising the Lord for Israel’s decision to fully open in March 2022, for the first time since March of 2020.

Focus On The End Times will likely plan our next tour of Israel for the spring of 2023.






Ukrainian immigrants arrive at Ben Gurion International Airport on February 20, 2022

Amid Tensions at Home, Dozens of Ukrainian Jewish Immigrants Arrive in Israel 

Dozens of new immigrants from Ukraine arrived in Israel on Sunday as tensions on the frontier between Ukraine and Russia reached new highs.

The Ministry of Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption said 75 immigrants arrived on the initial flight and another 22 were scheduled to land in Israel later in the day.

“Our message to the Jews of Ukraine is very clear — Israel will always be their home; our gates are open to them during normal times as well as in emergencies,” said Immigrant Absorption Minister Pnina Tamano-Shata.

“Today we are happy to greet dozens of immigrants from Ukraine, and we are prepared to absorb thousands who want to move to Israel… we are waiting with open arms,” she added.

Jana Kovlenko, who arrived from Kyiv with her husband, Evgeni, and their daughter, said that “right now it’s scary in Ukraine. Everyone is only talking about war. Until the last moment we were worried that the flight would be canceled due to the situation.”

Gidi Schmerling, of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, which organized the flight, said the immigrants were tense in the hours before departure.

“When the plane took off,” Schmerling, who was on board, told Army Radio, “there was applause.”










Satan’s Plan for World Dominance is Working! Claiming the Temple Mount, His Prized Possession!

Satan’s Plan for World Dominance is Working! Claiming the Temple Mount, His Prized Possession!





Israelis walk by the Dome of the Rock Mosque in the Al Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem’s old city, Sunday, June 2, 2019. Clashes erupted after Israeli nationalists visited the contested site, revered by Jews as their most holy Temple Mount and by Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, during “Jerusalem Day, an Israeli holiday celebrating the capture of the Old City during the 1967 Mideast war.

UN vote overwhelmingly denies Jewish connection to Temple Mount

The resolution, which passed 129-11, denied that the Temple Mount holds any significance for Israel.

The U.N. General Assembly adopted a resolution on Wednesday which called the Temple Mount by its Muslim name, Haram el-Sharif, and downplayed the historical connection of the Jewish people to the holiest site in Judaism.

Called the “Jerusalem Resolution,” the measure was passed by a 129 to 11 vote, with 31 abstentions.

The name of the resolution says it all!

It says we’re getting close to the Rapture! And it screams Bible prophecy is coming to pass right before our eyes! (Zech. 12:2-3)

Bible prophecy indicates that in the last days Jerusalem will become the center of controversy with the world claiming it belongs to a people who really have no right to it!

Jerusalem is the City of God but prior to the Tribulation and then all the way up to Christ’s Second Coming, Jerusalem will be in a tug-of-war for its very survival between two titans: Satan vs. God!

With Biden illegally lifting Iranian sanctions on Iran, allowing them to better race to destroy Israel, and now this bazaar UN vote, Satan is having a good week! Both issues, Iranian nukes and control of the Temple Mount are “must haves” for the enemy as we draw closer to the Tribulation. In fact, both are strong signs we are, in fact, getting very close to the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble.”

With all that’s going on in the world, why is the UN so lazar focused on Israel? Last year, out of 20 UN General Assembly resolutions that criticize countries, 70 percent were focused on one single country— Israel.

What drives these lopsided condemnations is Satan’s powerful political agenda to demonize the Jewish state as part of his strategy for world dominance.

Satan is the “ruler of this world,” a phrase Jesus used 4 times in the Gospel of John describing Satan. The Greek word used for “ruler” in each case is “archon” which is a political tern reminding us that Satan has real influence over the nations and governments of this world. Now his sights are set on the Temple Mount!

Why Satan Believes He Must Destroy Israel

Review His Attempts

by Tim Buck

In our current Series called, The CLASH, we’ve discussed why Satan feels he needs to destroy Israel in order to defeat God. One of the reasons he feels he must destroy Israel is to prevent fulfillment of the Abrahamic Covenant.

God promised Abraham that He would have descendants forever, who would become believers and God would rule over them.

7 And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you.
8 And I will give to you and to your offspring after you all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.

 Genesis 17:7-8

 If Satan can destroy the Jewish Race, he can prove that God is a Promise Breaker not a Promise Keeper.

He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.

Luke 1:33

For 4,000 years the Jewish people have faced relentless persecution, opposition, and attempts to annihilate and destroy them; and in the future, the struggle against Israel will continue.

If it concerned any other people, this campaign would seem irrational. However, with Israel, a rational but very Satanic strategy sustains this animosity.

Let’s review some of his attempts.

Events in Ancient History:

Abraham went to Egypt and lied about Sarah, nearly causing Pharaoh to violate her — Genesis 12:10–20

Abraham had Ishmael with Hagar, bypassing Sarah — Genesis 16:1–4

Pharaoh ordered all male Hebrew infants to be murdered — Exodus 2

Esau attempted to usurp Jacob’s blessing from Isaac — Genesis 27

Pharaoh attempted to destroy Israel backed up against the Red Sea — Exodus 10

Israel decided to worship the Golden Calf at Mt. Sinai — Exodus 32:24

Moab tried to destroy Israel and stop them from entering Canaan — Numbers 22
The Canaanites amassed all their armies to destroy the Israelites — Joshua 11

The surrounding nations tried to destroy Israel during the time of the Judges — Judges 16

The Assyrian army destroyed Israel and tried to wipe out Judah — 2 Kings 17

The Babylonian army destroyed the Temple and Jerusalem — 2 Chronicles 38

Haman attempted to destroy all the Jews throughout the Persian Empire — Esther 3

Syrian forces tried to Hellenize Judea under Antiochus Epiphanes — Daniel 8

The Roman army destroyed Judea and Jerusalem twice (70 AD and 135 AD) — Luke 21

The Jewish people were scattered and persecuted throughout the world for 2,000 years — Luke 21:24

Events in Modern History

Hitler organized the Holocaust and destroyed over six million Jews.

The Jews attempted to return to Israel against extensive international opposition led by Great Britain.

Israel declared its independence on May 14,1948 and one day later on May 15 was invaded by Egypt, Jordan, Iraq and Syria.

Israel was invaded two more times in 1967 and 1973 by all its surrounding neighbors.

Israel has been disrupted by numerous intifadas from Palestinians and Jihadists.

Hamas has hurled tens of thousands of rockets from Gaza into Israel.

Future Events:

From Bible prophecy, we understand that there is no let-up in Satan’s campaign to destroy Israel.

Antichrist breaks his treaty with Israel, and invades the Holy land at the mid-point of the Tribulation — Zech. 14:1-2; Matt. 24:15-21

Satan is cast out of Heaven and attempts to destroy Israel in the wilderness — Revelation 12:13–17

Antichrist brings the armies of the world against Jerusalem and Israel in Armageddon — Zech. 12:1–3

Satan attempts to destroy the Holy City after the Millennial reign of Christ — Revelation 20

For Satan, the destruction of Israel is a matter of self-preservation. Ultimately, the survival of Israel results in the eternal damnation of Satan. How can this be? Because when Israel repents and nationally invites the Lord Jesus Christ to be its Redeemer, that generation of Israel will be saved, and Satan’s plan to destroy the Jews will finally be defeated.

Christ will return to the Earth, destroy Antichrist and his armies at Armageddon, establish His Kingdom over Israel and the world for 1,000 years, and then cast the still rebellious Satan into the Lake of Fire forever and ever. (Rev. 20:10)

The key is that Israel must survive to receive Christ nationally as their own Messiah. As Jesus said when He lamented over Jerusalem at His First Coming:

For I say to you, from now on you shall not see Me until you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord’!

Matthew 23:39

From Satan’s point of view, he must keep Israel from surviving the point when they will be ready to receive Jesus as their Messiah.

Satan wants to destroy Israel so that he can rule the world from Jerusalem and keep God from sending him to eternal damnation. But God will not allow Satan to destroy His chosen people. Israel is the apple of God’s eye and will survive just as God promised!
