20 April 11:00 PDT: Update Breaking- The Likud and Blue and White have just announced the signing of an agreement to establish a “national emergency government.”
- The deal will allow for Netanyahu to remain prime minister for a year and a half, after which he will be replaced by Gantz, as part of a rotation deal that will be bound in law.
- Until then, Gantz will reportedly serve as defense minister, while Blue and White No. 2 Gabi Ashkenazi will serve as foreign minister.
- If either party dissolves the Knesset early the other will become Prime Minister and elections will be held in six months.
- On July 1 Netanyahu and Likud will begin annexation proceedings for the illegal settlement blocks with a vote in cabinet followed by a vote in the Knesset.
Such an annexation will undoubtedly provoke a regional war if Netanyahu does not go to war sooner for his own reasons. This new government will be strong enough to fight a regional war and conclude a post hostilities Middle East peace deal over the objections of the Jewish extremists. Whether the 42 month tribulation is appointed to begin late this year or next year will depend on the will of God and how long it takes for the coming war and peace talks to work out.
Israel Heading Towards Regional War Followed by Peace Talks
Benny Gantz and Benjamin Netanyahu have failed to form a governing coalition and the mandate to find a new Prime Minister and government has passed to the Knesset.
The Knesset would have 7 days to name a potential prime minister who would then have 14 days to form a government before an election date is legally required. If the Knesset cannot agree on a PM candidate within 7 days an election would be called then.
Nevertheless the Netanyahu / Gantz talks will continue through the next seven days. Yet it seems that neither side really wants a relationship and the dance is really just an effort to try and avoid responsibility for bringing yet another election to Israel.
There are two main possible outcomes:
- During the next seven days Gantz and Netanyahu still manage to reach an agreement which is approved by the Knesset within 14 days,
- There will be no agreement and no serious candidate after seven days, and the Knesset will send the mandate back to the president who will then set an election date for about three months later, possibly as early as August.
Israeli pundits speculate that; with the Blue and White coalition breaking up and Likud growing in the polls, what Netanyahu really wants is a new election in the hope of winning big time after annexing the settlement blocks and destroying Israel’s enemies in a looming conflict.
A poll by Channel 12 news finds that if a fourth round of elections were held today, Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud would win 40 seats, far, far ahead of any rival, and the Netanyahu-led bloc would have a Knesset majority.
Benny Gantz’s Blue and White is now predicted to get 19 seats, the Joint List 15 and Yesh Atid-Telem (the factions which split from Blue and White) 10. Shas gets 9, Yamina 8, United Torah Judaism 7, Yisrael Beytenu 7, and Meretz 5.
Regardless of the politics it looks like the immediate focus will be on handling the Covid-19 epidemic, while Bibi awaits a Trump go ahead for the annexations. Then Netanyahu will have to ask his cabinet to approve the annexation of the illegal settlement blocks to placate his far right backers.
This will be regarded as an extreme provocation by the Palestinians and they can be expected to make their feelings known.
Because of Netanyahu’s many recent threats it will only take a few rockets from Gaza, especially if any Israelis are killed, and Bibi will invade Gaza in full force resulting in a regional war.
The US is already positioning forces to use alleged Syrian chemical weapons use alleged by the Al Nusrah Front [aka al Qaeda] in 2017, as an excuse to attack Syria in support of Turkey in the near future. One does wonder if the American dispute with Turkey over the Russian S-400 air defense system is really a big hoax and if US technicians will be all over the S-400 as soon as it is activated. Remember that Turkey is prophesied to dominate the region.
After two or three months of costly bloody conflict the Israeli public would be inclined to elect a peace oriented government; and the Israeli public and the surrounding nations will be strongly motivated towards finally agreeing to a Mideast peace deal.
If another election is called in Israel and takes place after such a conflict, the peace oriented parties are likely to experience and will likely form a peace making government.
That would be an ideal time for the Quartet [the UN, US, EU and Russia] to call for an International Peace Conference, possibly asking the UNSC or the September UN General Assembly to endorse the call.
All of the affected countries will have little choice except to attend, and if the deal already almost completed between Barack and Abbas before Barak lost the Prime Minister’s office is used as a starting point, an agreement could be reached very quickly. Then it could be ratified over the objections of the Jewish extremists (1 Thess 5:3).
IF, since this could possibly take longer than expected so I really mean IF, this would be the appointed year; a man would be set up in the Vatican doing miracles near to the Feast of Tabernacles. Otherwise this would come next year.
Already today’s Covid-19 epidemic is stirring a renewal or religious fervor and at the appointed time an impressive miracle worker will be set up in the Vatican. Conceivably this miracle worker could be the present Roman Pontiff or just as likely it could be some new person. It is even possible that a new person could appear doing miracles and impress the cardinals enough to set him up as Pontiff.
God will withdraw his protection (Ezekiel 4-5) and this miracle worker would be set up and he will quickly endorse the peace deal and also endorse a New Federal European system.
A few weeks after this miracle worker is set up, God will commission his two servants and they will begin their work with a final warning to the brethren, calling on them to turn in sincere repentance to live by every Word of God and then using their power to take the faithful away from the trial to come.
I warn everyone now that the vast majority of brethren being totally dedicated to their false organizational traditions will reject the warnings of God’s two witnesses at that time; however a few hundred will heed and leave.
After this miracle worker is set up he will visit the Temple Mount within 75 days of being set up and the Israeli extremists will then sabotage the peace (Mat 24:15). When the miracle worker goes to the Temple Mount the Jewish extremists will oppose the provisions of the peace plan and conflict will break out.
Outraged by the peace treaty being broken so quickly, the Palestinians will rise up supported by the nations of Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and the Arab States, and a terrible bloody conflagration will ensue; then the New Federal Europe will intervene to stop the bloodshed.
Once Jesus Christ stops intervening with God the Father in heaven on our behalf, which is the spiritual meaning of the physical Daily Sacrifice which was stopped by Prince Titus of Rome in 70 A.D., God’s blessing and protection will be withdrawn and disease epidemics will surge through America.
Today’s epidemic will be a picnic compared to what is coming; and the nations, yes including the brethren, who will no longer be under God’s blessings will suffer terribly.
Deaths will increase exponentially into the scores of millions as the economy collapses and the nation is unable to deal with drought, famine and disease as well as natural and man made disasters. By the end of the 42 month tribulation scores of millions, perhaps 100 million or more will die.
The great tribulation in America will involve economic collapse accompanied by drought, famine, natural and human rooted disasters and epidemic over a period of 42 months, but many falsely believe that the tribulation will begin with Europe attacking the United States with nuclear weapons, but the scriptures say that:
Daniel 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
In other words he will gain world dominance through non violent economic means. It is also written that it will take a full 42 months to take the Anglo Saxon nations down.
Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half [42 months]; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
The truth is that many wrongly believing that a physical Daily Sacrifice must be started first and then stopped, when the Daily has already been stopped by Prince Titus of Rome in 70 A.D.; and they falsely think that the tribulation will begin with the nuking of America. When these things I write of come, some will quickly repent while many will be in denial that the tribulation is under way well into the actual tribulation!
After Europe stops the bloodshed in the Middle East the New Europe will align with Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the Palestinians and the Arab States (Psalm 83), as well as her natural allies in the predominately Catholic nations of Latin America.
This will bring the Islamic consortium into the orbit of the New Federal Europe spelling the end of the Petrodollar and America’s economic dominance. Instead of being funneled through American companies, the huge Arab investment in rebuilding the region will end up in Europe’s coffers.
As part of the deal Europe will turn the remaining Jewish areas in Palestine into ghettos and work to deport as many Jews as possible, while the Middle East nations will for their part will reject the Petrodollar in favor of the currency in use in Europe. This will bring Europe into economic dominance and the dollar dependent nations will collapse in severe economic, political and many other crises.
The US dollar dependent nations will then spiral down into economic collapse while the New Federal Europe allied with the Latin American nations as well as the nations of Psalm 83 and strongly supported by the nations of Asia will achieve an unequaled prosperity until they fall out with Asia.
The Tribulation of Judah
God will withdraw his blessings and protection from the Judaeo Anglo Saxon peoples because of our wickedness, and the man of sin will be set up in the Vatican and a Middle East peace deal will be made after the looming Middle East conflict unfolds.
Whether this comes this year or next year in the context of history the great tribulation is now imminent.
Then when this man goes to the holy place (Mat 24:15) within three months of being set up doing miracles, the extremist Jewish Settler Movement folks will sabotage the peace deal triggering a massive Palestinian uprising in the West Bank and Gaza, and by the Palestinian residents of Israel.
Heavy fighting will ensue as the Palestinians, Gazans, Jordanians, Syrians, Arabs and Turks flood into Judea (Psalm 83) and the New Federal Europe will send in their forces, in the name of peace to stop the bloodshed.
Beginning with the occupation of Jerusalem, the armies of local nations [Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, the Arab nations and Turkey (Mat 24:15, Psalm 83)] outraged by the collapse of the peace plan, will rush in, and the Jewish State from which God has withdrawn his blessings and protection will be in extreme jeopardy.
The battle will begin at Jerusalem and progress with a Palestinian uprising against the settler outposts that the Jewish Settler Movement refuses to give up and will then envelope Israel itself.
Many Jewish extremist settlements will be overwhelmed and there will be massive bloodletting on all sides and Europe will intervene in the name of peace and with the blessing of the whole world for the sake of ending the bloodshed, it is even possible that the intervention will be welcomed by all sides including the moderate Jews who are in the majority. These outposts will fall like over-ripe fruit with massive bloodshed, which massive bloodshed will quickly spread.
The rising Palestinians and invading nations will also suffer very heavy casualties and the New Federal Europe will step in to stop the blood shed in the name of peace.
The Jews in Palestine will be separated into ghetto like neighborhoods and strongly encouraged to emigrate; and the people of the surrounding nations (Psalm 83) will be so grateful that they will ally with the New Europe and abandon the Petrodollar.
Suddenly, America will lose the vast Middle East rebuilding projects which will go to the New Europe making them immensely wealthy, while America and the nations dependent on the Petrodollar will slide into economic collapse.
This conflict is the provocation against Europe (Dan 11:40) that will bring an essential intervention by the New Federal Europe in the name of peace; and to secure the weaponry and stop the bloodshed they will have no choice but to intervene
The New Federal Europe and its spiritual leader will be seen by all the world as a wonderful peace bringing entity [and very many main stream non radical Jews will initially see them as a savior, until they are confined in ghettos for deportation], and will convince the whole world to look to them as great moral leaders of a new age of peace.
The Tribulation of America and the British Peoples
Because the Europeans will run out of patience with Trump’s bully boy economic tactics, the European intervention, will open the door for Europe and the Middle East to abandon the Petrodollar and rally around the Euro or whatever currency the New Europe adopts.
To do business with the European Middle Eastern alliance, or to buy energy from the Middle East or products from Europe; other nations will jump on the bandwagon also abandoning the US Dollar.
The US and the Anglo Saxon nations based on the US Dollar will quickly fall into economic collapse and escalating cascading catastrophes over the next 42 months (Dan 12:7) until they have been humbled and are ready to accept the King of kings when he comes.
- When a Mideast peace deal is being finalized,
- When this miracle worker is set up and doing miracles in the Vatican,
- When he calls for a New Order in Europe and
- Then schedules his trip to Jerusalem (Mat 24:15) and
- God’s two witnesses are set up;
When the miracle worker is set up in the Vatican and schedules a visit to Jerusalem, we can know that the tribulation is imminent.
While we wait, it is extremely important that we prepare by seriously studying the sound doctrine of Holy Scripture, and that we turn away from idolizing men and corporate organizations to live by every Word of God; in the hope of being chosen for the resurrection change.
- This New Europe will come together and within about 75 days of this man being empowered to do miracles he will visit the Holy Mount.
- Jewish Settler resistance to his visit and the peace deal will trigger the occupation of Jerusalem and the beginning of a quick fall for the Jewish State.
- Because of sin God will have removed his protection, because possession of the land is contingent on wholehearted obedience to every Word of God (Deu 28), and
- Outraged by the breaking of the peace deal the Palestinians will rise up and the surrounding nations will flood into the Jewish State and a great bloodbath will ensue (Psalm 83).
- The New Europe with worldwide support, will enter the fray in the name of peace to stop the blood shed.
- The Jews will then be confined to ghetto’s in great privation and many will be driven out of the region as a proposed solution to the problems.
- The New Europe will align with Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the Palestinians and the Arab States, as well as her natural allies in the predominately Catholic nations of Latin America and elsewhere, and they will reject the Petrodollar.
- Most of the rest of the world will also reject the dollar; and the remaining dollar dependent nations will collapse in severe economic, political and many other crises.
- The Asians nations will grow closer together ,while Europe will dominate the rest of the world.
- The New Federal Europe will then clash with Asia, and as that war climaxes Messiah the Christ will come.
From the time that this man is set up doing miracles there will be a maximum of 1335 total days until the Kingdom of Go dis set up and God’s Spirit is poured out on all flesh at a future Feast of Pentecost (Dan 12).
With the economic collapse of the US and the loss of its expected huge rebuilding earnings and accompanied by natural and man made disasters, drought, famine and epidemics throughout the next 42 months; America and the Judaeo Anglo Saxon people will be thoroughly humbled.
- America will begin to lose economic traction and conditions will begin to decline,
- Then during the first year as the economy fails, severe drought accompanied by overwhelming disease will gripe the nation,
- During the second year a population weakened by a lack of proper nutrition due to the drought and the inability to produce or import provisions, people will be even more susceptible to epidemic diseases greater than the Spanish Flu and other such disasters. The second year will be worse than the first, with a breakdown of law and order over food, race and other issues in the Anglo Saxon nations.
- Then after the sixth seal has been opened at approximately the two year mark. the sign of Christ in his glory will appear in the sky resulting in the repentance and sealing of the first 144,000 [see the 144,000 article] who will be called out; 12,000 from each tribe of Israel except Dan [and very probably other folks from many nations not included in the 144,000 from Israel], to witness that the Eternal is God and witness to people that if they would only trust and obey him, he would save them.
- The 144,000 scattered throughout the nations of Israel will be witnessing when the New Europe goes to attack Asia and the Seven Trumpet Plagues are poured out according to the preaching of God’s Two Witnesses, sometime into the third year.
- Sometime after two years the New Federal Europe will attack the nations of Asia and they will counterattack sweeping through the Middle East to Jerusalem.
- The third year will be worse than the second with even greater malnutrition and many more dying.
- Then after the final winter, God will allow his Two Servants to be killed and then the seventh Trumpet will begin to sound and these two along with all God’s chosen, will rise to life eternal as spirit.
- This will be seen by all the earth and the Gentile rulers will be angry, but the nations of Israel will remember the preaching of God’s Two Servants and the preaching and witnessing of the first 144,000 and they will see the plagues and heavenly signs; and they will humbled and will be ready to turn to the Eternal seeking his deliverance.
- A few days later after the Wedding Feast of the resurrected, in heaven (Rev 15, 19), and the pouring out of the seven last last bowls of plagues; Messiah the Christ will come WITH his resurrected chosen (Jude 1:14) and will deliver both Israel and all of humanity from bondage to Satan and sin.
- Then Judah and Israel will welcome their Deliverer with great rejoicing; and the resurrected king David will rule a united Israel/Judah! While Messiah will be King of all kings over all the earth!
Ezekiel 34:23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.
Ezekiel 37:24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
This 42 months of famine, disease epidemics, destructive riots and economic collapse will be accompanied by other natural disasters, one of the chief being great earthquakes which will be so great as to change the surface topography of the earth.
