A very warm welcome to all our guests and friends!
President Trump is consulting with Arab leaders about timing for release of the now fully complete Peace Plan. The peace plan, Greenblatt said, “will include a resolution to all of the core issues, including the refugee issue.” The US President told the Arab rulers that his “Plan of the Century” was finished down to the last iota and ready for immediate publication.
Release of the fully completed Peace Plan is now tentatively planned for end Jan or early Feb 2019 so as to use the approaching Israeli elections as a national referendum on the Plan; that is, people could vote on parties for or opposed to the Plan.
Watch for release of the Plan and a possible Israeli election in May or June with a regional war before polling day; with the combination of circumstances bringing a peace oriented government and the conclusion of a Peace Deal (1 Thess 5:3).
Watch the European track as conditions develop for setting up the miracle worker and the New Federal Europe which he will call the nations to accept.
IF these things happen in 2019 then the great tribulation will begin near the end of the year, if they take a little longer then the great tribulation will begin at the end of 2020.
11 Dec: Unfolding Prophecy in Europe- British PM May calls Trump after being rejected during whirlwind tour of Europe. The desperate May humbles herself after Trump recently criticized May for not doing enough to rein in Iran, questioning her over Brexit and complained about European-American trade relationships.
May and Britain have been driven into the arms of America and negotiations on a British US deal in place of a British deal with the EU may be coming soon.
Mideast War- An Israeli delegation, led by Head of the IDF Operations Directorate Maj. Gen. Aharon Haliva, is due to fly to Moscow to explain its operation on the Lebanon border today.
Hezbollah has begun organizing groups of demonstrators in the Shiite villages of South Lebanon.
There were two ramming attacks against Israelis today as the IDF arrested 19 people last night and now surrounds Ramallah. Pressure is building towards a three front situation for Israel: Gaza, Lebanon and the West Bank.
Europe- Macron speaks to the French people who have been demonstrating on four consecutive weekends. The people are economic conditions and extreme poverty as the government moves towards a more big business posture.
The Western propaganda machine is trying to claim that the protests are against the Paris Carbon Agreement when the issue is, the Macron support of big business in the hope of economic improvement or the people’s frustration at the immediate problem of impoverishment; that is Macron’s long term fix or the people’s desire for a short term fix.
10 Dec: Unfolding Prophecy in Europe- Due to extensive opposition in parliament Mrs May has contacted EU officials and informed them that unless the UK gets better terms, the deal will fail to pass. May will give an oral statement to the House of Commons on the European Union at 3.30 p.m. It will be immediately followed by a business statement from the leader of the House of Commons, Andrea Leadsom, implying that she will confirm the procedural details of the postponement of tomorrow’s vote.
It seems that it is impossible to get approval for any kind of deal even in the current reality. It appears that a HARD EXIT is coming in March 2019, and once the Mideast war comes and Europe is pushed towards a much closer Federal Union backed by a Catholic Pontiff, the chances of an accommodation with Europe appear to be nonexistent and the British will be driven into the arms of America in terms of alliance and trade.
Once the New Federal Europe is aligned with Latin America and the nations of Psalm 83 [Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, the Palestinians and the Arab nations] , Britain will join America in complete economic collapse.
US- New revelations on CIA Mind control research.
Mideast War- Surgeons delivered the baby of a 21-year old pregnant woman by Caesarean section overnight, while operating on the mother’s gunshot wounds received in a Palestinian drive-by shooting Sunday night, at the illegal Ofra settlement bus stop. The baby’s condition declined overnight, while the doctors are trying to stabilize the mother after hours of surgery. Two of the seven people injured in the attack were seriously hurt, one of them was her husband who was evacuated with his wife to Shaarei Zedek hospital in Jerusalem. The others, most of them teens, suffered slight injuries. The car sped away from the scene after the attack. Monday morning, IDF troops and the Shin Bet were still searching for the terrorists – at least two were seen in the car.
The longer the fugitives remain at large the greater the chance that this attack could be used for mass arrests of Hamas people and others in the next few months.
Jewish Home is calling for the outright annexation of the illegal Ofra settlement built on stolen private Palestinian land.
9 Dec: Breaking US-
Nick Ayers will not be taking the job of White House Chief of Staff because the President and Ayers could not agree to terms.

He offered to become chief of staff temporarily, but Trump insisted on a two-year commitment.

Mideast War: The IDF is initiating a partial mobilization of reservists.
Update- The first tunnel was located in advance of the operation by Military Intelligence between Misgav Am and Metulah. The operation was approved by the US at yesterday’s meeting between Netanyahu and Pompeo in Brussels.
Hezbollah is quiet about the operation because the Idlib offensive is still pending and the international terrorists in Idlib must be eliminated, to prevent the tens of thousands of terrorists from Central Asia now in Idlib from using the province as a base for terror operations against Russia and Central Asia.
Israel launches “Operation Northern Shield.” The first phase is a search and destroy operation to find any existing tunnel exits inside northern Israel. Heavy IDF reinforcements have been deployed to the northern border and the operation has begun around the Israeli town of Metulah and its vicinity. From there the operation will expand until the entire northern border is examined. This phase of Northern Shield is intended to secure the Israeli side of the border from any surprise infiltration’s during the coming conflict.
