Prophetic News Update – Happening Now

As the Sea of Galilee fills to bursting, Israel’s joy also overflows. At the parched freshwater lake where Jesus walked on the water, there has been a serious drought but now there’s some good news.

After weeks of major rainfall, the Sea of Galilee could see the nearby dam opened to send water into the Jordan River for the first time since 2013.

That means that Israel’s incredible food production, the envy of the Middle East, will become even more incredible this year.

Various plagues of Biblical proportions are wreaking havoc around the world.

Since Sept. 2019, the worst wildfires in Australia in decades have killed 28 people, destroyed more than 3,000 homes, burned 15-20 million acres, and killed millions of animals.

Currently, billions of locusts are devouring crops in Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Djibouti and South Sudan. (There is little left that people and animals can eat; think famine.)

About two-thirds of the pigs in China have died from swine flu, pork is now a luxury, some Chinese have not had pork to eat in about six months, and some have turned to cheaper meat (rabbits and dogs; think rider on the black horse; Rev. 6:5-6).

Thousands of chickens have also recently died from the H5N1 Bird Flu Virus in China.

The Coronavirus has caused China to declare a national emergency, the World Health Organization has declared a global health emergency, the U.S. has declared a national health crisis, other nations are taking similar steps; and there have been several reports that the real statistics are being grossly under- reported.

The U.S. is trying to contain it, but if it makes its way to Mexico, America’s open border will allow it to spread, and the U.S. will be helpless to stop it.

Incidentally, they are hard to come by, but washable, anti-viral or bio-block face masks do exist (Google for information).

China’s leader Xi Jinping ordered churches and crosses to be destroyed, he ordered the Bible to be rewritten, he ordered the posting of signs at churches forbidding anyone under 18 to enter, and forced people to worship him like he is God.

Perhaps, it is time to ask Xi Jinping if he is God, why doesn’t he stop the plagues that are killing the people and pigs in China.

Perhaps, it is time to ask if the true God is showing Xi Jinping and the world who really is in control.

President Trump’s peace plan for the Middle East called “Peace to Prosperity,” has been rejected by the Palestinians and the Arab League. No surprise there.

“The Palestinians never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity!”

But understand that no one expected them to accept the first offer, and no one should believe that their rejection means the plan is dead.

Contrary to the predictions of some that the Arabs would immediately attack Israel, several Arab nations are warming up to Israel and encouraging the Palestinian Authority (PA) not to close the door.

On Feb. 3, 2020 (6 days after Pres. Trump released his peace proposal), Prime Min. Netanyahu met with the current leader of Sudan (a 95% Muslim nation with about 43 million people and a member of the Arab League), and the Sudan and Israel agreed to stop all “mutually hostile actions and positions.”

Shortly after that, Tunisia’s ambassador to the UN helped draft a UN resolution that condemned Pres. Trump’s “Peace to Prosperity” proposal.

Tunisia (a 98% Muslim nation with about 11 million people) abruptly recalled their ambassador and fired him for condemning the proposal without consulting with them.

It’s also interesting that the U.S., Israel, Saudi Arabia, the EU, Sudan, Bahrain and Oman are talking about meeting in Egypt to discuss Pres. Trump’s peace proposal, and they are trying to get Jordan and the PA to attend.

Notice that these Arab nations have not gone to war against Israel.

They are talking about meeting with Israel to discuss ways to advance the negotiations.

Also, don’t overlook the fact that any number of events (war with Syria, war with Hezbollah, Iran, etc.) could change the situation.

There is no doubt that there will be a peace plan at the beginning of the Tribulation Period and all signs indicate we are inching ever closer to that catastrophic, seven-year period.

God alone knows whether Pres. Trump’s proposal will be re-negotiated in the future by Antichrist and Israel as the final covenant that triggers the Tribulation.

Pres. Trump, Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, and several others have told the Palestinians this may be their last chance to have their own state.

The U.S. has now told Mahmoud Abbas that the anticipated upcoming meeting in Egypt could be the Palestinians’ last chance to have their own state.

BREAKING: Trump to Unveil Peace Plan This Week During Impeachment Proceedings

BREAKING: Trump to Unveil Peace Plan This Week During Impeachment Proceedings

Stunning most Mideast analysts and pundits, President Trump says he will unveil his “Deal of the Century” peace plan this week during the Impeachment proceedings!

And he will also host a high profile, high stakes meeting with two senior Israeli leaders at the White House on Tuesday regarding the Peace Plan and Israel’s upcoming election; Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Benny Gantz.

“It’s a great plan,” the President said aboard Air Force One, “It’s a plan that really would work.” Here’s what we know:

  • Pence issued invitations to Netanyahu and opposition leader Benny Gantz while he was in Jerusalem on Thursday.
  • Pence said Gantz was invited at the recommendation of Netanyahu. Pence made the announcement while on his first visit to the new American Embassy in Jerusalem.
  • Pence is now the highest ranking American official to visit the new Embassy.
  • White House goal by including Gantz: to create the widest possible acceptance of the plan from across the Israeli political spectrum.
  • Jared Kushner and Avi Berkowitz are both architects of the plan among others
  • Leaks throughout the Israeli media purport to have bombshell details contained in the plan — but for the moment it’s all speculation and rumor.
  • Palestinian leaders are seething — one said, “No Palestinian can accept this dangerous conspiracy.”
  • A livid Mahmoud Abbas said: “We warn Israel and the U.S. administration not to cross any red lines.”
  • Very few of the 50 world leaders who came to Israel this week visited Abbas.
  • Palestinian leaders have for more than a year shut down all contact with the White House and have done nothing to negotiate with the Trump administration and try to improve how the deal may affect them.
  • Nevertheless, Trump says of his deal, “it’s actually very positive for them (the Palestinian people).

Three big questions emerging:

  • First, will the vast majority of the Israeli people embrace the plan, or will it create new social and political divisions?
  • Second, even though Abbas and his advisors will reject and denounce the plan, will any segment of the Palestinian people embrace it, or at least say that it is a reasonable starting point to begin negotiations?
  • Third, how will the Gulf Arab states react? Egypt? Jordan? I’m watching these matters most closely of all.
Iran Planning Campaign of Violence

Iran Planning Campaign of Violence

Iran wants America out of the Middle East!

In our upcoming class on January 28, we’ll discuss Iran’s role in the end times and how recent events line up with prophecy and could be thrusting us toward the Tribulation.

If Iran is playing out Daniel 8, which describes them charging westward across the Middle East, brace for the worst. Things could get ugly, real quick!

Tim Buck Jan. 8, 2020

US General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, made a statement about what was being seen in intelligence in the days before President’s Trump ordered the strike on General Soleimani’s motorcade. Gen. Milley said:

“We had clear, compelling, unambiguous intelligence to indicate Qassem Soleimani was planning, coordinating, and directing a significant campaign of violence against the United States in the coming days.”

There is enough in that statement to suggest that US Generals thought Iran was planning to attack US assets in a wave of assaults in an attempt to rid the US military from the region.

So what exactly were the “unambiguous” signs showing IRGC commanders planning a “significant campaign of violence” against the US, and soon, in the “coming days”?

This could only mean one of two things: either the attacks were (1) just more individual attacks on American assets and nothing more, or (2) the attack planning that was seen was a full scale, military assault on US assets and even possibly a major military campaign into Iraq to finish Iran’s takeover of Iraq.

If it was just more single attacks, the assassination of Soleimani has made the IRGC community cry out for vengeance.

If it was planning for a massive military campaign, the assassination of Soleimani has made the IRGC not only more resolute in getting rid of the US military from the region, but also more united with its Shia allies in other countries, and likely more focused in doing what they are planning to do.

It is very possible that President Trump’s assassination of Soleimani has accelerated end time events. This has been a theme of this President’s first term! So let me re-phrase that… the assassination of Soleimani has definitely accelerated end time events!

The President’s bold move to save American lives has caused the dominoes to fall one after the other in such a way that the events of Daniel 7 and 8 regarding Iran’s end time military campaign could be carried out exactly as recorded in the Word.

Iran Raises Red Flag

Iran Raises Red Flag

Red Flag of Doom and War Symbolizing Battle Ahead Raised To Top Of Holiest Mosque In Iran

For the first time In history the ‘Red Flag Of War’ has been hoisted over the holiest, tallest and most famous Jamkarān Mosque, located in Iran’s holiest city of Qom.

The flag was lifted in response to the killing of General Soleimani. The Iranian Shiite leadership feels it’s time for the appearance of the Mahdi, their messiah… Antichrist!

Tim Buck Jan. 7, 2020

In Iranian Shiite Islam, the red flag symbolizes there is a great battle on the horizon. But this isn’t just about any battle and this famous mosque isn’t just any mosque!

In Shiite theology, recent events in the Middle East are enough to spark their anticipated end time battle that will cause enough death and chaos to trigger the return of their Messiah known as The Mahdi.

The Jamkaran Mosque, located 4 miles SSE of Qom. Built for the Mahdi, Shiite Islam’s coming messiah, also referred to as the 12th Imam. Bible prophecy knows him as Antichrist.

Jamkaran Mosque
The Mosque of Antichrist

The Jamkaran Mosque is the center of Qom, Iran’s holiest city. It was built in AD 1003 by supposed order of the Mahdi himself, who is the twelfth imam of Shia Islam. The Twelver Shia Muslims of Iran are awaiting Mahdi’s appearance.

Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad often talked about getting ready for the Mahdi, and had claimed he himself was in communication with the Mahdi who is now in an “occultation,” i.e., is hidden away by Allah.

Who is “Al-Mahdi”? Those familiar with my teaching would recognize this as the Muslim name for the coming Antichrist.

Shiite Muslims believe that the leader of Islam must be someone from the bloodline of Muhammad. According to Shia theology, the Twelfth Imam was a young boy who was the twelfth generation bloodline from Muhammad. To prevent him from being killed, they believe Allah rescued him and supernaturally hid him away until the time of the end when he will reappear to lead Islam.

There is an important well on the grounds of this mosque. A Holy Well! It is the place where they believe the “Twelfth Imam” is located and protected by Allah to appear in the end times. The red flag was hoisted here to arouse the Mahdi!

This is no joking matter. To American’s, the whole concept may seem silly. But to the Iranian’s, who are deceived by the master deceiver, this may be the moment in history they’ve been longing for!

The danger of the Iranian regime is that their military doctrine is based solely on this deceptive Islamic theology. Muslim’s are deceived by Satan into thinking Antichrist is their savior, and they are trying to communicate with his spirit via the red flag to encourage his appearance.

Former president Ahmadinejad spoke of their “Twelver” beliefs that a major war was required to start chaos, and out of that chaos the Mahdi would emerge. Oddly, this is also what the Bible predicts.

What Could a Red Flag Mean?

Twelver Shias believe that war is necessary to bring about the Mahdi, their messiah (Antichrist). For the first time in the 1000-year history of the Jamkaran Mosque, the “mosque of the Antichrist” as I call it, the red flag was hoisted above the main dome.

The words “Those who want to avenge the blood of Hussein” are on the flag. Hussein was the third imam of Shia Islam who was killed unjustly. The Mahdi is to bring back justice, in their view.

The Shia Muslim leadership is declaring now is the time for Mahdi to come and finally undo the injustices, especially those committed by Israel, the “little Satan” and America, the “great Satan” and for the final, great war to begin.

The killing of Soleimani was the event to kick start all this. It appears that the militant Shias of Iran are now on the warpath. This could get ugly and dangerous and both Israel and the US are taking it serious.

All US citizens have been asked to leave Iraq immediately. US and Canadian embassies are warning their citizens of a possible attack on Israel.

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem!

And pray for America

And President Trump!

Trump, Netanyahu, Both Prosecuted for Phony Crimes

Trump, Netanyahu, Both Prosecuted for Phony Crimes

Both President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are being prosecuted for actions that have never been made criminal

STRIKING PARALLELS
FOR LEADERS OF
U.S. AND ISRAEL

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

Tim Buck December 27, 2019

President Donald Trump and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are both facing a similar situation with upcoming elections.

As I’m sure you’re well aware, President Trump was impeached last week by the U.S. House of Representatives. Both counts against the President are not criminal and would never be made criminal by the congress lest the whole gang would be put in prison!

The House decides by investigation and a majority vote if the President has committed an impeachable act. It then sends the Articles of Impeachment outlining the alleged wrong-doing to the Senate.

The Senate decides whether the President should be removed from office via a two-thirds majority vote. Historically, the Senate has acquitted the serving President and left him in place.

Impeachment is very rare. And that this impeachment is taking place less than a year before the 2020 election, has many people seeing it as an attempt to spoil Trump’s re-election chances.

In Israel, there’s a similar situation. Last month Prime Minister Netanyahu was indicted on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. The felonious charges against him say he tried to influence a newspaper for favorable reporting on his campaign and administration. The trial is not set until April, 2020 or later.

However, after two failed attempts to form a government, Netanyahu did agree to a party primary so Likud could choose a new leader. That primary is taking place now, although few experts expect Netanyahu’s challenger, Gideon Sa’ar, to get more than 30 percent of the vote.

But this week a new wrinkle developed. There was a petition filed with Israel’s High Court of Justice. The petition asks the judges to rule if a person under indictment can legally run for office.

A negative ruling will mean that Netanyahu won’t be able to run in the March 2 general election. It will also mean the Likud party will need to turn to Gideon Sa’ar after all, or find another new candidate.

As with Trump, some people are viewing the petition as an attempt to get Netanyahu out of the election – and possibly politics entirely.

The Battle Over Jerusalem

Question: Who are the two most powerful world leaders that support Israel’s right to Jerusalem?

Answer: President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. And both facing a vicious attempt of lies to have them removed from office while both face upcoming elections.

Satan has rolled out his playbook to have these two leaders removed. In my view, the two political battles in America and Israel are related and part of the spiritual, end-time battle being waged by Satan with the ultimate prize being control of Jerusalem.

Why is Jerusalem such a Flash-Point?

Satan wants Jerusalem to prevent Jesus from reigning there as King of Kings. This is one of the most significant battlefronts in the Spirit today; it will manifest in fullness at the end of the Tribulation in the battle over Jerusalem we call the Battle of Armageddon, and will be ended by Jesus when He returns to reign from Jerusalem as King over the whole earth.

By going after Trump and Netanyahu at the same time, Satan is attempting to better position himself for the prize of Jerusalem!

Satan is getting desperate which means he knows his time is short! Jesus is coming soon!!!

The Impact on Israel

There have been a few opinion pieces that have asked what impact Trump’s impeachment will have on Israel. It is very unlikely the Senate will remove Trump from office.

Netanyahu’s situation will have a much greater impact on the Jewish State. He has been Prime Minister since 2009, and he’s been involved in Israel’s politics even longer, serving as Prime Minister from 1996-1999.

Having a new Prime Minister would be a large change for Israel no matter what. If Netanyahu is prevented from running again or forced out of politics entirely, it will cause a massive shift in Israel’s political landscape.

It might also lead to major danger.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has called the indictment an “attempted coup.” If enough Israelis feel the same way, it could lead to wide-spread bitterness, resentment, anger and greater political division.

With enemies on nearly every border, Israel can’t afford to be divided against itself.

That’s why it’s more important than ever to stand with Israel.

NEW DETAILS LEAKED FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ‘DEAL OF THE CENTURY’ PEACE PLAN SHOWS ISRAEL SHARING CONTROL OF JERUSALEM WITH A NEWLY-CREATED STATE OF PALESTINE

Details of the Trump Plan, released by a TV channel based in Lebanon, discuss a trilateral peace agreement between the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and Israel in which a “new Palestinian state” would be established in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, excluding the West Bank Jewish settlement blocs which would remain part of Israel.

Jerusalem will remain united under mostly Israeli control with some responsibilities shared with a Palestinian state including the West Bank and Gaza, according to a draft copy of President Trump’s “Deal of the Century” peace plan for the Middle East published by the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen TV channel this week.

Stunning new details have been leaked, purposely of course, regarding the ‘Deal Of The Century’ that Donald Trump has tasked Jared Kushner with working out. The West Bank and the Gaza Strip would form the nucleus of the new Palestinian State, and this new state would share control of an undivided Jerusalem with Israel. Deal or no deal? That’s the question. And what is the answer to that question? Jerusalem. It has always been about Jerusalem.

“Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.” Nehemiah 2:20 

This plan is light years ahead of whatever has been presented up until the Trump presidency!

After reading the proposal below, even if it fails it is the most well thought out peace plan that once again will serve to accelerate end time events.

This plan, in essence, is laying the groundwork for the coming seven-year covenant between Israel and Antichrist that triggers the time clock for the 7-year Tribulation.

If it was any other nation than Israel, and any other city than Jerusalem, it would be a slam-dunk.

But my Bible tells me that Israel is not numbered among the nations and Jerusalem is not like any other city. It is the place where God has put His own name.

From a Bible prophecy perspective Jerusalem is the key in all of this. Jerusalem is God’s city and Satan wants it. The center of Bible prophecy is Israel and the center of Israel is Jerusalem. 

“Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 14:21 

An interesting twist in the fine print is that Saudi Arabia would control the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem instead of Jordan who is doing it now. Now we are starting to see why President Trump has spent time and energy wooing the Saudi kingdom. It’s all beginning to make sense.

Jerusalem To Remain United In ‘Deal of the Century’

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: The draft details the timetable and methods of the plan. 

Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (PLO) are currently in talks to hold elections for the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Jerusalem. Jerusalem will not be split up in the agreement, but instead will be “shared” between Israel and the Palestinian state, with the Arab population of the city becoming residents of the Palestinian state, according to the reported draft.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks at the Israeli-American Council Summit in Hollywood, Florida, U.S. December 7, 2019

Al-Aqsa Mosque will be put under Saudi Arabian control instead of Jordanian control, according to the draft. The mosque is currently administered by the Waqf, an arm of the Jordanian Ministry of Sacred Properties. It is unclear whether the rules currently prohibiting non-Muslim prayer at the site would change under Saudi Arabian control.

This new arrangement with Saudi Arabia is a major change to the status quo on the Temple Mount and if it happens, would align with the prophetic events of Revelation 17 where the Beast becomes enraged at Saudi Arabia aka Mystery Babylon, and destroys Saudi Arabia and the city of Mecca in one hour (Rev. 17:16-17; 18:17)!

THE JERUSALEM MUNICIPALITY WOULD BECOME RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ENTIRE CITY OF JERUSALEM, BUT THE PALESTINIAN STATE WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR EDUCATION AND WOULD PAY THE ISRAELI MUNICIPALITY TAXES AND UTILITIES.

JEWS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PURCHASE ARAB HOMES AND ARABS WON’T BE ABLE TO PURCHASE JEWISH HOMES – AND NO ADDITIONAL AREAS WILL BE ANNEXED TO JERUSALEM. HOLY SITES IN THE CITY WILL REMAIN AS THEY ARE TODAY, ACCORDING TO THE REPORT.

In the Gaza Strip, Egypt would grant land to the new Palestinian state in order to build an airport and industrial facilities. Palestinians would not be able to live in the lands provided by Egypt. A highway and a pipeline for treated water would be built between Gaza and the West Bank, according to the reported draft.

The United States, the European Union and the Gulf states would help implement the agreement and sponsor it economically. “An amount of $30 billion will be allocated over a period of 5 years for projects related to the new Palestinian state,” reported the paper.

The United States will provide 20% of the funds in the agreement, while the EU will provide 10% and the Gulf nations will provide 70%. The contribution provided by the Gulf nations will be split between them according to their oil producing capabilities.

According to the draft, an agreement will be signed between Israel and the new Palestinian state, with Israel providing protection to the state from “external aggression,” while the Palestinians pay for it. The amount that the Palestinians will need to pay for this protection will be negotiated between the Arab nations and Israel.

The Al-Mayadeen report detailed a timetable provided in the draft copy of the agreement.

Upon the signing of the agreement, Hamas will hand over its weapons and armaments to Egypt, and members of Hamas will receive monthly salaries from Arab nations. The borders of the Gaza Strip will be opened to international trade through the crossings with Israel and Egypt and by sea. Trade will also open between Gaza and the West Bank.

A year after the agreement is signed, democratic elections will be held for the Palestinian state, with all Palestinian citizens being able to run as candidates. Around that time, all prisoners would begin being released, to be completed over a period of three years.

Within five years, a seaport and airport will be established for the Palestinian state. Until that point, Palestinians will be able to use Israeli ports. The borders between the Palestinian state and Israel will be open to the passage of civilians and goods. A highway that rises 30 meters above the ground will connect Gaza to the West Bank. The highway would be built by a Chinese company.

The Jordan Valley would remain under Israeli control, according to the report. Highway 90 will be expanded and will link the Palestinian state with Jordan. The highway will be supervised by the Palestinians.

If Hamas and the PLO reject the deal, the United States will end all financial support they provide to the Palestinians and will try to prevent other countries from providing support to the Palestinians.

If the PLO accepts the agreement and Hamas or the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist groups don’t accept, then the two organizations would bear the responsibility of their decision. In any military confrontation between Israel and Hamas, the US will support Israel in order to harm the leaders of Hamas and PIJ, as the US won’t accept a situation in which dozens of people control the fate of millions.

IF ISRAEL REJECTS THE DEAL, THE US WILL END ECONOMIC SUPPORT TO THE STATE OF ISRAEL, ACCORDING TO AL-MAYADEEN.

Although Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has said that the US is biased, one of his chief advisers reportedly said they would not reject Trump’s plan outright.

A letter published in The Guardian by former EU officials, including six prime ministers and 25 foreign ministers, called for postponing the “Deal of the Century” because it is unfair to the Palestinians.

In the letter, which was sent to the European Union and EU governments, the former leaders argue that Europe must stand by the two-state solution and condemn the Trump administration’s policy, which they claim is unilaterally in favor of Israel.
