Israeli Airstrike on Damascus
When I (Amir Tsarfati) was awakened at 1:30 AM on Monday morning to the sound of five F-16s taking off from nearby Ramat David Airbase, I was pretty sure I knew where they were going. Sure enough, I later saw that the Israeli Air Force (IAF) had struck the Damascus International Airport where they put two runways temporarily out of commission and hit a weapons cache that had arrived from Iran. The attack also hit a holy site in the suburbs of the capital city where more weapons were being stored. Two Syrian soldiers were killed and two more were wounded.
UN General Assembly Passes Another Resolution Against Israel
The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) passed another of its meaningless resolutions requesting the International Court of Justice to weigh in on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israeli “annexation”, and the “legal status of the occupation.” Promoted by the Palestinians, this is the 141st resolution against Israel that has come out of the UNGA just since 2015. Sadly for the rest of the globe, they have fallen way behind when it comes to UNGA condemnation, only managing to muster 68 negative resolutions worldwide in the same timespan. The nation of Israel promised to give the resolution the attention that it deserves, then everyone went out for falafel.
Main Obstacle for Peace Between Israel and Saudi Arabia is the Biden Administration
The surprising relationship between Israel and Saudi Arabia keeps growing. But there is an unlikely impediment to a peace deal being signed between the two nations. It’s the Biden administration. The Saudis recognize the closeness between Israel and the US, and they simply don’t trust an administration that was so eager to cut a deal with Iran. However, they also recognize that Israel is the one nation that is as concerned about a nuclear Iran as they are. It will be interesting to see if newly installed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is able to forge a peace agreement with this former enemy. Remember, prophetically speaking, Sheba and Dedan (Saudi Arabia) will not fight against Israel, but will instead protest the attacks on the nation.
Chief Rabbi of Moscow Who Fled Russia Suggests Other Jews Do the Same
Exiled Chief Rabbi of Moscow, Pinchas Goldschmidt, is encouraging Russia’s 165,000 Jews to flee the country while they still can. Russian Jews in the Tsarist and Stalinist eras were often made the scapegoats during difficult times, and the rabbi sees the real potential of this happening again. “We’re seeing rising antisemitism while Russia is going back to a new kind of Soviet Union, and step by step the iron curtain is coming down again,” Goldschmidt said. “This is why I believe the best option for Russian Jews is to leave.”
Deadly Ukrainian Strike on Russian Troops Blamed on Cell Phone Usage
A vocational college building that had been converted to a temporary barracks for Russian soldiers in Makiivka in the Donetsk region was hit by four rockets on New Years Day. The resulting detonation of the ammunition stored in the basement caused the building to be demolished. Russia puts their death toll at 89, while Ukraine says it is closer to 600. The truth is likely somewhere in the middle. Russian officials blamed the unauthorized usage of cell phones by its troops which allowed the Ukrainian military to target the building.
Russia’s War on Ukrainian Civilians
Ukrainian officials report that Russia launched a cruise missile attack on civilian areas of Kyiv on New Year’s Eve. At least one person was killed in the barrage. Earlier that same day, Russian President Vladimir Putin awarded the Order of St. George medal to General Sergei Surovikin, which is the nation’s highest purely military decoration. Obviously, Putin is happy with the general’s civilian-oriented tactics aimed at destroying Ukraine’s infrastructure, especially its electrical grid.
UK to put IRGC on Terrorist List
The United Kingdom is poised to place Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on its list of terrorist organizations within weeks. The move comes as the result of credible evidence that the IRGC intended to kidnap or assassinate British citizens or UK-based civilians who they claim were stirring up the protests in Iran. “We have seen at least 10 such potential threats since January  alone,” said MI5 Director Ken McCallum.
Iran Condemns Another Protestor
Mehdi Bahman, a well-known author and illustrator, was sentenced to death by the Iranian regime on Monday. He was arrested in October, after the Iranian protests had begun, ostensibly for espionage after he gave an interview critical of the government to an Israeli news station back in April. He is reportedly being taken to Tehran’s notoriously violent Evin Prison to await his execution.
Political Chaos in Washington, D.C.
It’s been more than a century since the US has seen this kind of political chaos in Washington, D.C., as the House of Representatives have failed 12 times to elect a Speaker. In an internal party battle, there are 12 Republican congressmen refusing to cast their votes for the mainstream GOP candidate House Republican Conference leader Kevin McCarthy. Tempers are flaring and words are flying. Nebraska GOP congressman Don Bacon dubbed the holdouts the “Taliban 20”, while Republican congressman from Arizona, Andy Biggs, responded in a tweet his desire to “break up the DC cartel.” Meanwhile, Democrats in the House chamber cheered and chanted with every failed vote. The dividing of America seems to be the enemy’s #1 priority.
COVID Testing Requirements Expand for Travelers from China
As the number of COVID cases in China continues to grow exponentially, more countries are imposing testing and restrictions upon travelers from the country. The nations that now have some sort of requirement for travel from China include Italy, US, UK, France, Spain, Australia, Canada, Japan, South Korea, India, Malaysia, Israel, Qatar, and Morocco. The final country on the list, Morocco, is the first to take the extreme step of banning all travelers originating in China from entering its borders.
U.S. Petrodollar Weakening
Ahead of the Tribulation Period
12/20/22 By Tim Buck
The decline and fall
of America is a biblical and prophetic necessity in order for God to deal with Israel alone during the coming 7-year Tribulation period. It’s sad sitting in a front row seat and watching it happen but God’s sovereign plan to redeem Israel takes precedence over all else in the last days.
That said, it stands to reason that the U.S. Petrodollar, one of the pillars upholding the U.S. economy must come to an end prior to the start of the 7-year Tribulation.
In 1971 a deal was struck between OPEC and the United States in which every barrel of oil purchased in the global marketplace would be bought with U.S. dollars. Any country, therefore, wanting to buy oil must have first exchanged its currency for U.S. currency. This “Petrodollar” system has created an artificial demand for the dollar as global oil demand has increased.
This has been responsible in large part for the US dollar’s relative strength over the last several decades, and thus also supporting Americans’ high standard of living.
Nothing better illustrates the utter ineptitude of the Biden administration’s dealings with the Middle East than Saudi Arabia’s decision to forge a strategic alliance with China.
Biden set the tone for his strained relationship with the Saudi royal family during the 2020 presidential election contest when he denounced the kingdom as a “pariah” state over its involvement in the murder of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul in 2018.
By any standard, the deepening military cooperation between Russia and Iran should serve as a wake-up call to the Biden administration to redouble its efforts to reaffirm its commitment to key allies in the region such as the Saudis, who are committed to resisting any attempt by Tehran to expand its influence in the region.
That the Saudi’s are now moving away from its traditional alliance with the U.S. and strengthening its ties with Beijing is a strategic disaster of epic proportions, and serves as a damning indictment of the Biden administration’s careless treatment of the Saudis, for which the president is personally to blame.
Schematic map of the States members of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa). Vector.
There’s been a steady movement over the last decade to dump the Petrodollar by a substantial International coalition known as BRICS. The anacronym stands for Brazil, Russia, India, China & South Africa.
Thanks to the weak and feckless U.S. administration’s treatment of the Saudi’s, it appears that they also are considering joining this anti-American coalition. It seems the U.S. is moving into yet another danger zone in the vital, world, energy sector.
Group Photo of Heads of BRICS Nations Family now reaches 28 nations including Turkey at the BRICS Outreach Event in Johannesburg (July 27, 2018).
Momentum for BRICS and moving away from the U.S. Petrodollar is growing fast with more eastern and anti-American nations joining the movement every year.
Unlike their low key welcome of Biden, Saudi Arabia lays on lavish welcome as China’s XI heralds ‘New Era’ in relations.
This news item out of Saudi Arabia is a rather significant development in terms of the Petrodollar’s days being numbered.
Chinese President Xi was welcomed in Saudi Arabia with pomp and circumstance, as trade deals were made with Saudi oil being bought in Chinese Yuan, and relations between the Arab oil-rich states and China drew closer.
Today America is living proof that having the world’s most important currency translates into a higher standard of living than most nations.
At one point in our history, our nation’s largest export was a variety of consumer goods. Now our largest export is the U.S. dollar…a dollar that costs us practically nothing to create.
How long will it be before the nations of the world figure out the dollar fiasco is a fraud?
Pray for America! This is but another sign of the soon return of Jesus.
Keep looking up!

Russian-Iranian Alliance Has World On Edge
10/7/22 By Tim Buck
Russian Nuclear Threat
A Russian military train caught on video is reportedly transporting equipment for the nation’s nuclear weapons program to the frontlines of its war with Ukraine, sparking fears that Russian President Vladimir Putin could be preparing to use nuclear weapons on the battlefield amid his nation’s mounting losses in the war.
“Such videos are never released by chance. I’m 100% sure that there was a purpose behind posting or releasing such a video,” Konrad Muzyka, an aerospace and defense consultant focused on Russia and Belarus, told CBS News.
The video surfaced amid reports by CBS News that the U.S.-led NATO military alliance had warned its member nations that Russia could be preparing to test its nuclear-capable Poseidon torpedo.
“Going forward, we are going to see more reports about Russian activities that relate to nuclear weapons, that relate to drills of units which can potentially be carrying nuclear warheads,” Muzyka said.
“Russia will try to increase the pressure on the West, and it will try to indicate to the world that, from its point of view, the nuclear option is being considered.”
Adding salt to Russia’s wounds is the mysterious explosion of Nord Stream 1 & 2, Russian’s gas lines to Europe. Following the explosion, the Swedish Minister of Energy suggested that the explosion was likely the result of an attack from another country. Russian foreign intelligence is claiming that a western country was involved in the execution of the incident.
Russia continues to target the civilian population in Ukraine. Last week, the Russians hit a convoy of Ukrainian refugees trying flee the contested region of Zaporizhzhia. At least 23 people were killed in the attack.
However, the most notable moment related to Russia surfaced when Vladimir Putin announced that four Ukrainian provinces have been officially annexed to Russia. As of this week, Russia considers any attack against these annexed areas an attack against Russia itself. The Biden Administration responded with widened sanctions on Russian officials following the announcement of the annexation.
Not only is Russia hinting at the future use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine, but the Chechen Republic is also encouraging the Russians to proceed in this manner following the Russian retreat from Liman in Eastern Ukraine. Just days ago, NATO warned its member states of Russia’s deployment of the K-329 Belgorod Nuclear Submarine equipped with the Poseidon Nuclear Missile. This week, Russia began nuclear tests on its border with Ukraine.
Russia even has its hand in what’s taking place regarding oil output of OPEC’s announced dramatic decrease. The current oil cut is the largest since the onset of COVID-19 in 2020. Russia is influencing this lack of output in an attempt to increase oil prices around the world.
Iran’s Mass Protests
Iran continues to struggle internally with a host of riots taking place in opposition to the corrupt regime. Recently, at least 19 people were killed and several others were injured in the Sistan and Baluchistan provinces alone.
A statue of the late Iranian General Qassem Soleimani was set on fire at one of the protests. He’s considered a national hero in the eyes of the ayatollahs. But Iran has other problems, as its currency, the rial, hit an all-time low of 330,000 rials to one dollar.
A young lady named Nika Shakarami was kidnapped by Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) forces throughout the protests last week. After an extensive search for her body, her family was asked to come identify that which was found. She had been beaten extensively before being killed.
When it comes to Iran and Russia, Iran is being humiliated by its own people and is imploding economically. Russia is being embarrassed on a global scale due to its lack of success in Ukraine and is dealing with a crumbling economy.
While these two despotic regimes seem determined to forge an alliance, however, their objectives are completely at odds with the demands of their citizens, whose primary concern is securing their freedom, not supporting the military aspirations of the ruling elites.
In Russia, the hostility among ordinary Russians to Putin’s regime has manifested itself in nationwide protests against the Russian leader’s attempts to mobilise 300,000 reservists to help support his disastrous military campaign in Ukraine.
Nationwide disgust at Putin’s unprovoked assault on Ukraine has seen hundreds of thousands of young Russians fleeing to the borders in a desperate attempt to avoid the horrors of conscription and being made to fight in a war none of them supports.
In Iran, meanwhile, the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini as she was detained in custody by Iran’s morality police, allegedly for refusing to wear a hijab, has resulted in Iranians of all ages taking to the streets across the country in mass protests and shouting “death to the dictator”, a reference to the country’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Iran’s security forces have reacted to the anti-government protests with their customary brutality; figures at the time of writing estimate at least 76 people killed in the government’s crackdown. Even so, the anti-regime protests have continued to spread, with more than 80 cities and towns affected by the violence since Amini’s funeral on September 17.
For many Iranians, the death of Amini, who reportedly died after being struck several times on the head, is the last straw, and the demonstrations represent the biggest anti-government uprising since the 2009 Green Revolution.
The deepening unrest in both Russia and Iran should certainly give the Biden administration pause for thought as it weighs up its next move on the nuclear negotiations.
There is growing concern in Washington that Biden is preparing to sign a new deal with Tehran once the midterm elections have been concluded, and that his officials are prepared to sign a far weaker version of the deal than that originally agreed to in 2015.
At a time when both the Russian and Iranian governments are battling nationwide dissent, this would be a grave miscalculation on the part of the Biden administration.
This should be the moment when the US and its allies are intensifying the pressure on both Iran and Moscow, not capitulating to their interests with a weak nuclear deal which will only encourage them to indulge in further acts of aggression against the West and its allies.
Israeli strike destroyed over 1,000 Iranian-made missiles in Syria!
A targeted warehouse and underground secret facilities, located in Syria, reportedly destroyed thousands of missiles stored for Hezbollah and assembled under the supervision of Iranian Republican Guard Forces.
Satellite images taken by Planet Labs show heavily damaged structures at the Scientific Studies and Research Center of a Syrian weapons base near the northwestern city of Masyaf in an Israeli airstrike.
Israel attacked the large, central, underground complex and military arsenal built by Iran that allows the Syrian Agency for Scientific Research to accumulate in a protected manner, thousands of components to assemble precision missiles and from there to gradually smuggle them to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
The attack demonstrated Israel’s watchful eye and uncanny ability to destroy underground Iranian factories.
Israel Strikes Again!
News of Prophetic Interest
Around the World
August 30 by Tim Buck
Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.
An airstrike Thursday on the Syrian city of Masyaf attributed to Israel hit a missile warehouse containing more than 1,000 Iranian-made missiles, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on Saturday.
The warehouse, in the city’s Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC) complex, stored thousands of medium-range, surface-to-surface missiles assembled under the supervision of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps “expert officers,” the report said.
Syrian air-defense systems were activated in northwestern Syria on Thursday, with Syria’s state news agency SANA reporting that local forces were “confronting hostile targets” above Masyaf. Later, the agency said the airstrike was an Israeli attack.
The observatory added that 14 Syrian civilians sustained injuries with varying levels of severity during the Masyaf airstrike, in addition to casualties reported among Iranian-backed militias guarding the research center– which was heavily damaged during the attack.
Moreover, several fires broke out in areas surrounding the city ignited by the shrapnel from the explosions of the warehouse, with nearby civilian houses and property suffering material damage, the report said. Secondary explosions continued for hours after the strikes, along with the blazes caused by them. Local residents were reportedly instructed to remain in shelters until the fires were brought under control.
In addition to the strikes attributed to Israel, the United States also engaged in a string of tit-for-tat attacks last week against Iranian militias in northern Syria who had targeted US forces with rockets and drones.
Iran-backed militias have established a large foothold in Syria while fighting in support of President Bashar al-Assad during Syria’s civil war.
Iran And Russia Create
Global Natural Gas Cartel
The $40 billion memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed last month between Gazprom and the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) is a stepping stone to enabling Russia and Iran to implement their long-held plan to be the core participants in a global cartel for gas suppliers in the same mold as the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) for oil suppliers.
With a foundation in the current Gulf Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), this ‘Gas OPEC’ would allow for the coordination of an extraordinary proportion of the world’s gas reserves and control over gas prices in the coming years. Occupying the number one and number two positions in the world’s largest gas reserves table, respectively – Russia with just under 48 trillion cubic meters (tcm) and Iran with nearly 34 tcm – the two countries are in an ideal position to do this.
The Russia-Iran alliance, as evidenced in the most recent multi-faceted MoU between Gazprom and the NIOC, wants to control as much of the two key elements in the global supply matrix – gas supplied over land via pipelines and gas supplied via ships in liquefied natural gas (LNG) – as possible.
According to a statement last week from Hamid Hosseini, chairman of Iran’s Oil, Gas, and Petrochemical Products Exporters’ Union, in Tehran, after the Gazprom-NIOC MoU had been signed: “Now the Russians have come to the conclusion that the consumption of gas in the world will increase and the tendency towards consumption of LNG has increased and they alone are not able to meet the world’s demand, so there is no room left for gas competition [between Russia and Iran].”
He added: “The winner of the Russia-Ukraine war is the United States, and it will capture the European market, so if Iran and Russia can reduce the influence of the United States in the oil, gas and product markets by working together, it will benefit both countries.”
The Russian energy giant Gazprom recently informed the French gas company who relies on Russian gas: “Due to problems in the contract” not all the gas will be supplied.
No doubt – Russia continues to punish Europe!
Iran’s hard-line President Ebrahim Raisi spewing lies and threats against the U.S. & Israel in recent press conference:
In June, the IAEA Board of Governors passed an anti-Iran resolution proposed by the United States, Britain, France and Germany following the agency’s reports that Tehran had not provided “technically credible explanations” for the uranium particles found at three undeclared sites.
Today the Iranian president said that without the closing of this investigation a deal can not be achieved.
What the Iranians basically say is:
“We fooled you , you know that, we know that, but if you want a deal you must pretend it never happened”.
Israeli Mossad Estimates There Will Be A New Nuclear Agreement
In the coming weeks, Israel will need to step up its activities against Iran
A new nuclear agreement between Iran and the powers seems closer than ever, after the significant progress in the list of demands sent between the parties. The Mossad presented Prime Minister Lapid with an assessment according to which the agreement will be signed in the near future, within a few days to several weeks.
At the same time, the Mossad and the IDF will be prepared for a line of action on, among other things, the increase of Israeli activity throughout the Middle East against Iran. This will include thwarting Iranian terrorism, thwarting the smuggling of Iranian weapons to all countries and organizations in the region – and not just activity on Iranian soil.
It can be assumed that the Mossad and the IDF have built extensive and significant infrastructures in a number of countries throughout the Middle East. These infrastructures will allow them to do what we have seen, including intelligence and operational penetration into the Revolutionary Guards in Iran and a much wider maneuverability in a long list of countries.
More of Raisi’s Lies and Threats
“The presence of the US in the region threatens the security and stability of the region. Israel’s threats express its fear and we advise it not to start any aggression because it may not exist. All Israel’s threats and measures will not help them stop our path, and they are aware that they are unable to confront us. Israel never wanted Iran to get the technology, but Iran got it anyway. Our peaceful nuclear capability is Iran’s right, and no one can prevent it from this right.”
Have you ever heard such a string of lies? Of course, neither God or Israel is unaware of the lying tongue of the evil Prince of Persia (Dan. 10:14, 20) who stands against Israel in the latter days.
Israel recently revealed that in the midst of the nuclear talks: Iran has begun enriching uranium in one of the 3 advanced centrifuges clusters recently installed in the underground facility in Natanz.
God is not fooled and reminds us, “whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap?”
Satan, the great liar and hater of God’s chosen people “is a thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy. But Jesus came that we might have life and enjoy life more abundantly.”

Chaos Across Iraq as Violence Soars
Civil War Incitement by Iran
Baghdad is plunging into more instability with rioters now inside the presidential palace in Baghdad.
The Iraqi military declared a curfew in Baghdad. UN and foreign embassies personell vehicles are leaving the green zone. The government suspends all its meetings. Iran closed its land borders with Iraq until further notice and Kuwait is urging its citizens to leave Iraq immediately.
After the important Shiite leader Muktada a-Sidr whose party won the majority in parliamentary elections decided to withdraw from politics and shut down the offices of his political party, his followers stormed into the presidential palace in Baghdad. They suspect that Iran made the threats and is behind this move to destabilize and gain more control.
A- Sidr is a loud opponent of Iran’s intervention in Iraqi affairs and the rumors are that killing squads were sent to assassinate him.
As government forces open fire on protesters, locals decided to respond with the same coin. Full out up rising on the way paving the way for more bloodshed and suffering.
So far the clashes are between the supporters of the prominent Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and the security forces.
Once the clashes will start between them and the pro-Iranian militias it can rapidly escalate into a full blown civil war.
The protests are similar to those that have engulfed Lebanon in recent days. Incitement and chaos is easily encouraged by Iran in that they are economically-driven, largely leaderless and spontaneous against a sectarian-based system and a corrupt political class that has ruled for decades and driven the two countries to the brink of economic disaster.

Israel Adds Yemen To
Its Active Combat List
8/19/22 – by Tim Buck
“Hear, Israel: Today you are going into battle against your enemies. Do not be fainthearted or afraid; do not panic or be terrified by them. 4 For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”
Military chief Aviv Kohavi revealed Thursday that the Israel Defense Forces carried out a strike on an unnamed country during the recent round of fighting in the Gaza Strip earlier this month.
“Ten days ago, the Israel Defense Forces hit with great precision Tayseer Jabari, who is an arch-terrorist,” Kohavi said at a Federation of Local Authorities conference, referring to the northern Gaza commander of Iranian proxy, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, killed during the opening strikes of Operation Breaking Dawn between August 5 and 8.
“And at the same time the IDF carried out a wave of arrests in the West Bank, and at the same time attacked a third country, and then carried out defense along the rest of Israel’s borders,” Kohavi said.
Arabic-language media reports have said that on August 7 at least six Iranian and Lebanese advisers were killed in Yemen at a camp run by the Iran-backed Houthi rebel group. The reports attributed the blast to a Houthi ballistic missile that exploded while being redeployed. Now we know different.
The reports said dozens of Houthi fighters were also killed, and that the blast triggered a second explosion in a nearby factory and weapons dump in Al Hafa military site in Naqam mountain near Yemen’s capital Sa’ana.Last year, the IDF deployed air defense batteries around the southern city of Eilat amid concerns of an attack by the Houthis. The Iran-backed group is believed to have missiles and drones that can reach Israel.
Yemen’s brutal war erupted in 2014 after the Houthis seized Sana’a. A Saudi Arabia-led coalition entered the war months later to try to restore the internationally recognized government.
The conflict has in recent years become a regional proxy war that has killed more than 150,000 people, including over 14,500 civilians. It also created one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. A ceasefire between the sides took effect in April.
Israel in the past has been willing to strike targets relatively far from its borders, including several airstrikes in Sudan more than a decade ago that targeted shipments from Iran to the Hamas terror group in Gaza via the African nation.
Israel has also carried out hundreds of airstrikes in Syria in the last decade, mostly to stymie attempts by Iranian forces to transfer weapons to Lebanon’s Hezbollah or establish a foothold on Israel’s northern frontier.
The IDF refers to three levels of direct threats facing Israel as “circles” with the first being small terror groups on Israel’s borders, like Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the PLO; the second being larger threats, like the Syrian army and Hezbollah; and the “third circle” being countries that do not share a border with Israel, like Iran, Iraq, and Yemen.
The State of Israel is on track to break the record this year for Jewish people immigrating to Israel. What a thrill watching Israel’s “Second Exodus” in full swing! Pay attention world, its God’s sign that we’re in the final hour.
“So then, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when people will no longer say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ but they will say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the descendants of Israel up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ Then they will live in their own land.”

France President Emmanuel Macron urged the resumption of talks towards a two-state solution with the Palestinians and Israel, which he called “the only option to enable a just and lasting peace”.
The End Time Sign
For The Two-State Plan
7/19/22 by Tim Buck
Thanks to Joe Biden’s recent pandering to the Palestinians, the two-state solution is making front page Middle East headlines for the first time since President Trump presented his well thought out peace plan in 2019.
I said in 2019 that the Trump plan was by far the most well thought out, two-state plan ever conceived and was so brilliant it could likely become the template for the final plan that prophecy says will be confirmed by Antichrist before the start of the Tribulation (Daniel 9:27).
Although prophesied to happen, God warns Israel not to divide the land under any conditions or they will suffer the consequences of His wrath in the Tribulation (Joel 3:1-3).
Giving back any land to the Palestinians, let alone the heartland of Judea and Samaria, the so-called, “West Bank,” is tantamount to Joshua offering to give back Jericho to the Canaanites. It is an offense to Almighty God who gave Abraham and his descendants all the promised land for eternity!
Yesterday, the Times Of Israel reported that “A senior Saudi minister described normalizing ties with Israel as a “strategic option,” while clarifying that a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians was a “requirement” before Riyadh would formalize ties with Jerusalem.”
This means the official line of Saudi Arabia is that while they may be willing to join the Abraham Accords, the ticket price of their admission is nothing less than the dividing of the land of Israel in the two-state solution.
And France’s President Emmanuel Macron would dearly love to broker that deal with Israel and the Palestinians.
For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
1 Thessalonians 5:2-3
After Biden’s visit last week, the Middle East is buzzing with talk of the two state solution between Israel and the Palestinians!
FROM THE TIMES OF ISRAEL:
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will hold talks with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris this week focusing on the “Israeli-Palestinian peace process.” Direct peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians have not been held since 2014.
Emmanuel Macron: ‘There is no credible alternative to the two-states solution with Israel.’
Macron said, “What can resolve the crisis between Israel and Palestine, surely not unilateral initiatives, nor trampling on the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to legitimate peace. Nor underestimating Israel’s fair right to security. There is no credible alternative to the two state solution, living side by side in peace and security with Jerusalem as the capital of both nations.”
Tim’s Note: How can anyone be so foolish and blind. Satan wants Israel divided to have a better opportunity at exterminating the State of Israel.
The good news for the church is that these are the last days and with the two-state plan getting closer, it is a strong sign of the soon return of the Lord. Dividing the land is one of the last things to happen before the 7-year Tribulation begins! Keep looking up!
