Turkey's Erdoğan: 'Liberate Jerusalem' from the Jews
"It's a symbol that unites us," he continued. "All those who claim that Jerusalem is the Jew's holy city should be ashamed. We chose the name Saladin in order to send a message with the help of Allah that Jerusalem will always belong to the Kurds, to Turkey, to Arabs, to Muslims."...,7340,L-4663579,00.html

The Fight for Jerusalem is On!

However, should that be of any surprise?  The Hebrew Prophet Zechariah over 2,500 years ago told the world through the written Word for hundreds of years, that this was coming: 

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it”  Zechariah 12:2-3 …is this not what Israel is right on the edge of now, at this very time in history?

Psalms 2:1-5 asks the question, states the issue and sums up the coming action:

“Why do the nations conspire, and the peoples plot in vain?

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together,

against the LORD and his anointed, saying,

"Let us burst their bonds asunder, and cast their cords from us."

…The God of Israel’s response…”He who sits in the heavens laughs; the LORD has them in derision.

Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury”

In discussing Jerusalem, and in answering the question of Psalm 2, history matters…and if you take the time to read a very well written historical perspective of Jerusalem (the accurate truth for a change) you will clearly see how we are where we are today - see the follow webpage: …[be sure to read both pages of this link].

So, do the Jews Have a Right of Possession?

What does the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob have to say about the Land of Israel and its Capital Jerusalem? …and keep in mind Abraham's son Ishmael is the father of the current Arab Nation raging against Israel.

Regarding the issue of the Land, the Bible [“God’s Word”] says in Genesis 15 that the Land currently in question, is the promise from God to Abraham. The book of Deuteronomy states twenty-five times that the Land is a gift to the people of Israel from the Lord (Deuteronomy 1:20, 25; 2:29; 3:20; 4:40; 5:16)…THIS IN AND OF ITSELF ESTABLISHES THE JEWS RIGHT OF POSSESSION!...FOREVER!

Ezekiel 11:14-17 states: “Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, your brethren, your relatives, your countrymen, and all the house of Israel in its entirety, are those about whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, ‘Get far away from the Lord; THIS LAND HAS BEEN GIVEN TO US AS A POSSESSION.  Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Although I have cast them far off among the Gentiles, and although I have scattered them among the countries [the Jewish Disporia began with the 6th century B.C. conquest of the ancient Kingdom of Judah by Babylon], yet I shall be a little sanctuary for them in the countries where they have gone.”’ Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “I will gather you from the peoples, assemble you from the countries where you have been scattered, and I WILL GIVE YOU THE LAND OF ISRAEL.” …WELL, CAN IT BE ANY CLEARER?   The re-gathering was also prophesied by the Prophet Ezekiel over 2,500 year ago in Ezekiel 37 it refers to the dry bones taking on flesh and living again “I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken it and performed it,” says the Lord” Ezekiel 37:14.

On November 2, 1917 the Balfour Declaration was issued expressing British support for a Jewish "national home" in Palestine.  It was the culmination of a long tradition in Britain that supported restoration of the Jews to their own land for philosophical, religious and imperialistic motives.  The Zionist movement had thus been founded to create a national home for the Jews, secured by international law…When the Balfour Declaration was drafted there was no Palestinian nation!

On the day the British Mandate over Palestine expired - May 14, 1948 - the Jewish People's Council gathered at the Tel Aviv Museum and approved a proclamation, declaring the establishment of the State of Israel…   At least 10 Bible prophecies were fulfilled when Israel became an independent, united nation for the second time in history, and for the first time in 2,900 years – see …this has been sited by many Biblical scholars as the verification and fulfillment of the single biggest end-times sign!

In 1980, Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, passed the Basic Law: Jerusalem, Capital of Israel. The law states “Jerusalem, complete and unified, is the capital of Israel.” This Basic Law also asserts that Jerusalem is “the seat of the President of the State, the Knesset, the Government, and the Supreme Court.”  In 1980, Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, passed the Basic Law: Jerusalem, Capital of Israel. The law states “Jerusalem, complete and unified, is the capital of Israel.” This Basic Law also asserts that Jerusalem is “the seat of the President of the State, the Knesset, the Government, and the Supreme Court.” …

Regardless of what God has said, International law has mandated, and the Jewish Nation has declared, “the nations conspire, and the peoples plot” for the destruction of Israel, and the confiscation of Israel’s God given right to the Land, with Jerusalem as its Eternal Capital.  The Fight for the Land and Jerusalem is On and the God of Israel has something to say about that…In spite of the current Intifada and the strong nations surrounding Israel (some with biological, chemical and nuclear weapons) plotting to destroy her, and in spite of world religions, political powers and ethnic groups, who seek to take away Israel’s Land, the real landlord of Israel and Jerusalem – the one who has stated that Israel is the Apple of His Eye (Zechariah 2:8) seems, for the most part, to be quiet, and restrained for the moment, unmoved by the plotting of men.  However, Yahweh, the God of Israel, promises to clearly and decisively insert himself into the picture…

“Thus says the Lord of hosts: I am zealous for Jerusalem And for Zion with great zeal.”  Zechariah 1:14

“Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. In that day,” says the Lord, “I will strike every horse with confusion, and its rider with madness; I will open My eyes on the house of Judah, and will strike every horse of the peoples with blindness. And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, ‘The inhabitants of Jerusalem are my strength in the Lord of hosts, their God.’ In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a firepan in the woodpile, and like a fiery torch in the sheaves; they shall devour all the surrounding peoples on the right hand and on the left, but Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place – Jerusalem” ~ Zechariah 12:1-8

“The Lord also will ROAR from Zion,

And utter His voice from Jerusalem;

The heavens and earth will shake;

But the Lord will be a shelter for His people,

And the strength of the children of Israel.” Joel 3:16

“The God of Israel will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem” Zechariah 12:9

So Whose Jerusalem is it?

>  Years that Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish People: (3, 000).

>  Number of times Jerusalem is mentioned in the Hebrew bible: (669).

>  City to which all Jews are required to make pilgrimage: (Jerusalem).

>  Years that Jerusalem has been the capital of any Muslim or Arab people: (0).

>  Number of times Jerusalem is mentioned in the Koran: (0).

>  City to which all Muslims are enjoined to make pilgrimage: (Mecca)

>  Religious Jews throughout the world recite their prayers 3 times a day while facing toward Jerusalem.

>  Muslims throughout the world, when they recite their prayers, face toward Mecca

The parallel between Mecca and Jerusalem offers the basis of a solution, as Sheikh Palazzi wisely wrote:

“separation in directions of prayer is a mean to decrease possible rivalries in management of Holy Places. For those who receive from Allah the gift of equilibrium and the attitude to reconciliation, it should not be difficult to conclude that, as no one is willing to deny Muslims a complete sovereignty over Mecca, from an Islamic point of view -notwithstanding opposite, groundless propagandistic claims - there is not any sound theological reason to deny an equal right of Jews over Jerusalem.” …how profound!

To back up this view, Palazzi sites several always neglected passages in the Qur'an:  1)  Qur'an 5:22-23 quotes Moses instructing the Jews to "enter the Holy Land (al-ard al-muqaddisa) which God has assigned unto you;" 2) Qur'an 17:104 has God Himself making the same point: "We said to the Children of Israel: 'Dwell securely in the Land;'" 3) Qur'an 2:145 states that the Jews "would not follow your qibla; nor are you going to follow their qibla," indicating a recognition of the Temple Mount as the Jews' direction of prayer. "God himself is saying that Jerusalem is as important to Jews as Mecca is to Moslems," Palazzi concludes.



In Jeremiah 31:3, God (not Allah) tells Jeremiah that He loves Israel with an everlasting love!

Jerusalem will forever remain the united capital of the Jewish people, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has vowed…  “We will protect Jerusalem, because Israel without Jerusalem is like a body without a heart,” the prime minister said. “On this hill, 45 years ago, the united heart of our people began to beat again, with full power. Our heart will never be divided again.”…“Our generation had a great privilege - we saw the words of the prophets come true,” he declared. “We saw the rise of Zion, the return of Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel, the in-gathering of the exiles, and our return to Jerusalem.” …just as Ezekiel 37 stated would take place!

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu also hammered home the correct message in a recent address to the United Nations General Assembly in 2014 [answering in part the question of Psalm 2 “Why do the nations conspire, and the peoples plot in vain?]

“ISIS and Hamas are branches of the same poisonous tree,” Netanyahu said. “When it comes to their ultimate goals, Hamas is ISIS and ISIS is Hamas.” There is very little difference between them, he emphasized. Both those groups as well as Hezbollah, Iran and other terrorist entities and supporters “all share a fanatic ideology. They seek to create ever expanding enclaves of militant Islam - where there is no freedom, or tolerance.”  When it comes to Israel, Netanyahu said, the goal is the same: destruction of the Jewish State. … 

The record is crystal clear and irrefutable, THE JEWISH NATION HAS THE ABSOLUTE RIGHT OF POSSESSION TO THE LAND, AND TO GOD’S ETERNAL CAPITAL JERUSALEM.   Unfortunately (however it is prophesied) a series of great wars are coming to this epicenter and I believe Israel will, by the power of Almighty God, expand her borders to closely align with the Abrahamic Covenant borders which God promised Israel - See  The regional Wars spoken of in Psalms 83, Jeremiah 49, Isaiah 17 & 19, Ezekiel 35, Zephaniah 2:4-15, Zechariah 12:1-9 will conclude in a massive and overwhelming Israeli victory, resulting in the reestablishment of a greater Nation of Israel.  Then, living in peace and security for a time, it sets the stage and becomes the likely impetus (along with the Gas & Oil “hook in the jaw”) for Russia to lead the Ezekiel 38 & 39 War against Israel, which God visibly and dramatically intercedes and utterly destroys this confederacy of Islamic Nations.  My belief is, at this point, the Daniel 9:27 covenant will be confirmed, and for the purpose of protecting the remaining Arab nations from the threat of Israel’s further expansion - not necessarily to protect Israel!  ...With what is going on right now, what we are watching with our own eyes, indicates we are at the very door-step of the fulfillment of these very significant prophetic events!

The Mysteries of Revelation Explained
Mr. Gary Stearman and Mr. David Hamblin have an extremely interesting conversation of very important subjects like the Rapture, the Church, Pre or mid or post Tribulation timing for the Rapture and the content of the book of Revelation.  This video is a case study in eschatology by two very knowledgeable Christians. So much info was discussed that it opens up a myriad of questions for the normal believer and a treasure trove for the scholar...

Is The Psalm 83 Confederacy (Islamic Caliphate) Surrounding Israel? 

ISIS purloined rockets from Hamas production lines to attack Israel

Islamic State operatives in the Gaza Strip have been helping themselves to Hamas rockets in recent weeks after furtively penetrating the factory teams operating the group’s production and assembly lines.  The jihadis then secretly passed the stolen rockets to their squads for launching against Israel…The point is not how many rockets should be fired before the IDF goes to war in the Gaza Strip, but for how long Israel’s leaders can afford to pretend to make naught of the dangerous situation building up there…

Netanyahu: Palestinians Setting a 'Perfect Trap' for Israel

"Our goal is prosperity, peace and security," said PM Netanyahu. "That’s a difficult order in the Middle East which sees states collapsing before our eyes."  "Syria no longer exists; Iraq no longer exists; Libya no longer exists; Yemen no longer exists," he continued.  "And every one of those places that collapses sees the emergence of militant Islam, either the Shi’ite variety led by Iran or the Sunni variety at the moment led by Daesh, by ISIS, and of course with its Sunni competitors." "In this environment, Israel wants to achieve a durable peace," he declared. "This peace means that we do not want to see a repetition of what happened in Gaza, what happened in Lebanon." "We left Lebanon – Hezbollah came in. We left Gaza – Hamas came in. Both are supported by Iran."  "We cannot afford to have that happen a third time,"… "Unfortunately, the Palestinians don’t negotiate," he said. "They ran away from negotiations.  "It’s a perfect trap, - What they do is they refuse to negotiate, refuse to deal with the framework, run to Hamas, which calls for our destruction, go to the UN and try to get sanctions on Israel." "They refuse to negotiate and then try to get boycotts on Israel for there not being negotiations which they refuse to enter," "And Israel is being blamed…

Islamic State says it’s eyeing Syrian Golan

The Islamic State released a clip this week warning rebel groups on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights — on the border with Israel — that the organization has set its sights on the area and plans to control it…According to military assessments, IS fighters continue to advance westward toward the Israeli border…

IDF Rehearsing for Nightmare Scenario: 4,000 Killed in Days

Security forces are currently rehearsing and preparing for a scenario in which Israel's enemies launch a “carpet” missile attack that Iron Dome will be unable to counter, due to the sheer number of missiles involved.  In this scenario, up to 4,000 Israelis will be killed in the first days of the attack, which could happen as early as this summer. "Iran is seeking to cover Israel with intense fire,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned in a special briefing for journalists. "In Lebanon, the Iranians are inserting the most advanced weapons in the world, and strengthening Hezbollah, so that it can hit any spot in Israel,” “They are trying to build a second front in the Golan, and of course, in Gaza.”…

‘Islamic State working to develop chemical weapons’

Recruits among terror group likely to have technical expertise for weaponizing toxic materials, warns Australian FM…“The fact that atrocities such as this continue to occur shows that we must remain vigilant to the threat of chemical and biological weapons.”…

Nasrallah Threatens to 'Displace' Millions of Israelis

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah once again threatened Israel on Friday, saying his group would displace "millions" in Israel if the Jewish state attacks Lebanon…"If they threaten to displace 1.5 million Lebanese, then the Islamic resistance in Lebanon (Hezbollah) threatens to displace millions of Israelis,"…

…ISIS is now ON the Boarder of Israel – in the Gaza Strip, and ready to take the Golan Heights.  They have seized not only sophisticated rockets and modern war machinery, but are about to weaponize WMD’s for specific use against Israel!! … Netanyahu: "Syria no longer exists; Iraq no longer exists; Libya no longer exists; Yemen no longer exists," he continued.  "And every one of those places that collapses sees the emergence of militant Islam - "We left Lebanon – Hezbollah came in. We left Gaza – Hamas came in. Both are supported by Iran."  "We cannot afford to have that happen a third time" …and the IDF is rehearsing for a nightmare scenario where 4,000 Israeli’s are killed within days when Israel's enemies launch a “carpet” missile attack.  Yes, The ISIS driven Psalm 83 Confederacy IS Surrounding Israel! And this escalation of hostilities is just not going to stop until God’s Judgments are fulfilled: Judgment on Damascus - Isaiah 17 & Jeremiah 49:23-27; Judgement on Elam - Jeremiah 49:34-39; Judgment on Nations - Psalm 83 & Zephaniah 2:4-15...all resulting in the Deliverance of Judah - Zechariah 12:1-9

Psalm 83 states that the immediate neighbors surrounding Israel, will launch a war for the purpose of "wiping out Israel as a nation" (verse 4). The nations described are those with a common border with Israel today (verses 6-8), and we can now see that this will be headed by ISIS in each of those States.  Does Israel win? The rest of the psalm is a prayer for the victory of Israel (verses 9-18) and we know from Zechariah 12:6 that Israel will be like "a firepot among pieces of wood and a flaming torch among sheaves, so they will consume on the right hand and on the left all the surrounding peoples..." 

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels." Psalm 122:6-7 ...May PM Benjamin Netanyahu and his Cabinet members be like “the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do”… I Chronicles 12:32

Be assured of the Biblically promised outcome: “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:3

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”
  Zechariah 12:9

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper…” Isaiah 54:17a

Interesting Note:  ISIS was an ancient Egyptian goddess (protector of the dead) and the mother of Horus.  Horus is one of the oldest and most significant deities in ancient Egyptian religion.  "Horus, son of Isis" and also known as the “Eye of Horus” is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection and royal power from deities, in this case from Horus or Ra. The symbol is seen on the top of the pyramid on the U.S. dollar bill - the all seeing eye.  Horus was also said to be a god of war - he became a symbol of majesty and power as well as the model of the pharaohs.  In later Egyptian dynastic times, Ra was merged with the god Horus (Ra and Horus were one and the same).  He was believed to rule in all parts of the created world: [the goal of the Islamic State and of the antichrist] the sky , the earth, and the fitting, ISIS (Islamic State) seems to be the end-time embodiment of Horus son of Isis - this is no coincidence and likely all fitting the plan of the Antichrist in end-time prophetic events.

WAKE UP CHURCH!! "Wake up, sleeper! Arise from the dead” Ephesians 5:14NASB  “you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed” Romans 13:11ESV

"Blow a trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the Day of the Lord is coming; surely it is near." Joel 2:1

"Encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near."  Hebrews 10:25b

June 15, 2015 - Highlight & Commentary





Pope Francis and the Vatican State are ready to launch a summer-long campaign where Francis is going to preach on the need to massively reduce the world’s population, stopping climate change, and having a One World Government to rule the planet…Make no mistake about it, Pope Francis has a full-on political agenda, and he is going to use his pulpit to advance it. He is not content to merely be the Pope of the world’s Catholics, he craves raw political power as well. Revelation 17 and 18, talking about the Vatican and the Catholic Church, clearly show her to also be a political force that reigns over the world’s kings. Francis is doing his best to bring that about here and now…

Pope Francis To Followers: “Koran And Holy Bible Are The Same”

A smiling Pope Francis was quoted telling the Vatican’s guests that the Koran, and the spiritual teachings contained therein, are just as valid as the Holy Bible -  “Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Jehovah, Allah - these are all names employed to describe an entity that is distinctly the same across the world. For centuries, blood has been needlessly shed because of the desire to segregate our faiths. This, however, should be the very concept which unites us as people, as nations, and as a world bound by faith. Together, we can bring about an unprecedented age of peace, all we need to achieve such a state is respect each others beliefs, for we are all children of God regardless of the name we choose to address him by. We can accomplish miraculous things in the world by merging our faiths, and the time for such a movement is now…

One World Religion: Former Israeli President Proposes Pope to Head ‘UN for Religions’

A few months back, former president Shimon Peres met with the Pope at the Vatican and proposed that the Pope head up a UN for religions. But the main topic of conversation was Peres’s idea to create a UN-like organization he called “the United Religions.” Peres said the Argentina-born pontiff was the only world figure respected enough to bring an end to the wars raging in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world…

In September, The UN Launches A Major Sustainable Development Agenda FOR THE ENTIRE PLANET

No surprise that Pope Francis is traveling to the UN to give an address to kick off the Sustainable Development Summit on September 25th...sounds like a pre-launch of a one-world government…Under this Pope, the Vatican has become much more political than it was before, and sustainable development has become the Vatican’s number one political issue. And did you notice the language about “the world’s religions acting in unison”?  Clearly, the Vatican believes that it has the power to mobilize religious leaders all over the planet and have them work together to achieve the “UN’s sustainable development goals”…

Pope Francis Meets with Abbas, Calls Him 'An Angel of Peace'

Pope Francis warmly welcomed Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas on the latter's visit to the Vatican. The Pope even went so far as to call Abbas "an angel of peace."… the Holy See recently announced that it has worked out a treaty with the "state of Palestine," cementing its decision two years ago to recognize the "country…



Formal recognition of a Palestinian state by the Vatican, which has deep religious interests in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories that include Christian holy sites, lends a powerful signal of moral authority and legitimacy to the efforts by the Palestinian Authority’s president, Mahmoud Abbas, to achieve statehood despite the long paralyzed Israeli-Palestinian peace process…A statement from a joint commission of Vatican and Palestinian diplomatic officials, posted on the Vatican news website, said “the work of the commission on the text of the agreement has been concluded,” and that it would be submitted for formal approval and for signing “in the near future.”…

It would appear, at this time, Pope Francis is quickly fulfilling many of the signs of the False Prophet of the book of Revelation. Prophetically, he has accomplished more in the last two years than the last 20 popes combined. Unlike all popes before him, he is absolutely the enemy of the state of Israel. As shocking as all the news is reported above, it is only a warm-up for what will occur after the Rapture of the Church, and during the 7-Year tribulation period where the False Prophet and the Antichrist have the unrestrained freedom to rule and overwhelm this world! The signing of the Vatican’s treaty with Palestine; the launch of Global Depopulation and World Government Agendas; and erasing the lines of differences in faith and theology (Chrislam), advances the prophecy time clock forward by an exponential leap!!

“Then he said to me, The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.  And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.  And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:15-18

TIME IS SHORT (Romans 13:11) - WAKE-UP CHURCH! (Ephesians 5:14) Look-Up! (Luke 21:28, Buckle-Up! (Ephesians 6:13), because we are Going-Up! (I Thessalonians 4:16-17) SOON! (Revelation 22:12)

Jordan / ISIS Conflict - Jordan Will Tremble and Fall! (Jeremiah 49)

Another ancient Bible prophecy seems to be nearing its fulfillment! The subject nation of this vastly overlooked prediction is Jordan. Approximately 2600 years ago, the Hebrew prophet Jeremiah foretold of a tormenting fear that would someday engulf this Arab state.

The prophecy informs that Jordan will tremble as troubling events close in on all sides of its borders. Jeremiah 49:5 says “Behold, I am going to bring terror upon you,” Says the Lord GOD of hosts, “From all your neighbors…” (i) In other words, terrorizing geo-political events surrounding Jordan will destabilize the nation. This type of terror has never overtaken this territory until now!

According to Jeremiah 49:1-5; the instability that occurs within the country burgeons into an epic biblical war against Israel, which results in Jordan’s destruction and the expansion of the Jewish state.

Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says the LORD, “That I will cause to be heard an alarm of war In Rabbah (Amman, Jordan) of the Ammonites; It shall be a desolate mound, And her villages shall be burned with fire. Then Israel shall take possession of his (land) inheritance,” says the LORD. (Jer. 49:2-3, NKJV)


Presently, Jordan faces trouble on every front. ISIS has its sights on Jordan and is pressing in from the north and northeast from strongholds in Syria and Iraq. ISIS has sympathizers inside of Jordan, like they do in Iraq and Syria. The Iraqi and Syrian partisans played a significant role in the expansion of ISIS into those countries. The ISIS supporters in Jordan, like their Iraqi and Syrian counterparts, embrace the same goal of an Islamic State in the Levant (ISIL), which is another acronym that ISIS goes by.

Jordan sits in the heart of the Levant. The concern is that ISIL will lockstep with their Jordanian adherents and capture Jordan.

Additionally, exiles continue to flood into Jordan from the turmoil in Iraq and Syria by the tens of thousands. There are approximately 710,000 refugees presently encamped in Jordan. This is comparable to about 11% of Jordan’s overall population. In addition to creating economic and political volatility, many of these fugitives are prime candidates for ISIS recruitment.

On the eastern front Jordan is unnerved by Iran’s attempt to spread its hegemony in its direction through significant troop deployments into the embattled areas of Iraq and Syria. Moreover, Iran’s funding of terrorist organizations like Hezbollah, (to the north) Hamas, (to the east) and the Houthis, (to the south) further aggravates Jordan’s situation.

Of equal or greater concern is Iran’s burgeoning nuclear program and unhindered development of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM). These ICBM’s, which are designed to carry weapons of mass destruction, could someday land in Jordan, or fly over its airspace on route to Israel or America. Iran believes Israel is the “Little Satan” and America the “Great Satan.”

Hezbollah’s growing presence to Jordan’s northwest in the Golan Heights intensifies the already existent tension between Israel and Syria. On Jordan’s western front, Israel is bracing for another possible war with Hezbollah, which could eventuate in over 1500 missiles being launched into Israel daily. In anticipation, Israel is fitting many of its bomb shelters with high speed wireless Internet capabilities. Israelis refuged underground, for perhaps weeks at a time, will need to know what’s happening to their country.

Once serving as a buffer state between Israel and the broader Muslim dominated Middle East, Jordan is on the verge of becoming more of a liability than an asset to the survival of the Jewish state. This is partially because the Jordanian Armed Forces are no military match for all the firepower mobilizing around it. These forces are mainly put in place to preserve the posterity of the ruling Hashemite kingdom. In the likely event of an ISIS external aggression against Jordan, and / or subversion from within Jordan, Israel could be drawn into the conflict. Israel has hinted that it would, if Jordan requests, ally with Jordan against ISIS.

Terrorism in the Sinai to Jordan’s south complicates matters further because much needed gas resources from there are under constant threat. The Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis Sinai based terrorist group, who has pledged allegiance to ISIS, has bombed gas pipelines into Jordan in the recent past. Terrorist groups like this that align with ISIS are another growing concern for Jordan. Like Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization based in Syria has also joined with ISIS.

These are just a few of the geo-political concerns that prompted Jordan’s King Abdullah II to come to Washington in February and December of 2014 and again in February, 2015. This trio of recent visits evidences Jordan’s urgent concerns about what’s going on in their neighborhood.

These visitations were primarily intended to enlist America’s strategic support against the spread of ISIS in the region, and to move the Palestinian – Israeli peace talks forward. There are an estimated 3.24 million Palestinians living in Jordan, nearly one-half of the country’s overall population, many of which are discontent with the current Jordanian leadership. From King Abdullah’s perspective, peace between the Palestinians and Israelis could provide some respite to the internal political strife occurring inside of Jordan. These Palestinians want a state of their own or at least more civil liberties within Jordan.

With all the geo-political mayhem around him, King Abdullah II is justifiably concerned about his and his country’s future. Since the Arab Spring in 2011, he has seen the removal of longstanding leaders and allies in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen and recently in Saudi Arabia, with the death of King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz. With the passing of these old guards the Jordanian king finds himself much more reliant on the strange bedfellows of America and Israel for his posterity.


Presuming all the above is what drives the fear spoken of in Jeremiah’s ancient prediction, the questions are why Jordan; and why now? After all, Jordan maintains a peace treaty with Israel, and is generally pro-western and is regarded by many as the most moderate Arab state in the Middle East.

The answers to these questions are found in Jeremiah’s entire prophecy, along with parallel prophecies in Psalm 83, Zephaniah 2, Amos 1, Isaiah 11 and elsewhere. The element of fear overtaking Jordan is only a small part of the country’s foretold future.

Jeremiah 49:1-2, Zephaniah 2:8-9 and Amos 1:13 point out that Jordan is guilty of enlarging its borders at Israel’s expense. Jordan is located within the borders of the “Promised Land” given to the Israelites through Abraham (Genesis 15:18), Isaac (Gen. 26:4) and Jacob (Gen. 28:13). This land spans from the Nile River in Egypt to the Euphrates in Iraq and Syria.

From the biblical perspective, Jordan is trespassing on prime property that Israel needs to secure and enlarge its borders. The Lord’s prophetic plan, which is ongoing presently, was to regather the Jews from the nations of the world into the re-established nation of Israel as the Jewish state. Throughout most of Jordan’s modern history it has been an obstacle to this sovereign strategy. Even today, Jordan, like the additional 21 members in the Arab League, refuses to recognize Israel’s right to exist as the Jewish state.

In the prophetic scheme of things, Jordan’s peace treaty with Israel is geo-politically expedient and paper thin. After soundly losing three conventional wars in 1948, 1967 and 1973 against Israel, Jordan’s former King Hussein found it lucrative economically, geographically, militarily and politically to befriend Israel. This was not, and is still not, considered to be a popular move by the majority of the Muslim world, which is mostly pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel.

Psalm 83 presents the most problematic prophecy concerning Jordan’s future. It identifies Jordan as the “children of Lot,” who were Ammon and Moab. Ammon and Moab team up in a ten member Arab confederacy that wants to wipe Israel off of the map and ultimately take possession of the Promised Land.

Psalm 83:8 predicts that Jordan will be supported by Assyria, which could be alluding to ISIS. There is a potential connection with ISIS in this prophecy. For more information about the possible role of ISIS in Psalm 83 read “Is ISIS in Psalm 83?” (

The stage is set in the Middle East Theater for several ancient Bible prophecies to find their literal fulfillment. Jeremiah’s prophecy concerning Jordan is only one of them.


“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels." Psalm 122:6-7

"Blow a trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the Day of the Lord is coming; surely it is near." Joel 2:1

"Encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near."  Hebrews 10:25b

2015 - Awesome Signs, Wonders & Insights


“Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night;
and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years” Genesis 1:14

“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained”  Psalm 8:3 …ordained here = appointed…or appointed times – Moedim or Moed - a fixed time. 
The Sun, Moon and Stars were placed in the heavenlies so we would know and understand God’s appointed times.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.

There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.  Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”  Psalm 19:1–4

On June 30th and July 1st the planets Jupiter and Venus will be so close together that it will appear as if they are one great star, according to 'Sky & Telescope' magazine.  One hour after sunset on June 30th the two planets will be only 1/3rd of a degree apart.

The two planets have been getting closer together over the past two weeks as Venus closes in on Jupiter on June 30th.  This will not only be a brilliant sight in the western night sky, just after sunset, but it also has Christological significance.  The reason so is because it will resemble the celestial event that happened just before the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.  This could be a "sign" as we look toward Rosh HaShanah or Feast of Trumpets.  Dr. Ernest Martin, author of the book, 'The Star of Bethlehem - The Star That Astonished The World", in which Dr. Martin states that Jesus was born on the Feast of Trumpets in 3 BC - September 11, 3 BC.

This very rare 2015 conjunction offers us an opportunity to witness an almost identical view that the Magi observed and followed.  They were watching the paths of Venus and Jupiter very closely since the prophet Daniel had prophesied the date of the coming of the Messiah.  They joined together in the Constellation of Leo in what is believed to be the Star of Bethlehem.  According to Christian astronomers Venus represents the Bride of Christ; and Jupiter, also known as the King Star, represents Messiah, the Bridegroom.  Their symbolic union represents the Messiah in His reign on Earth, as Leo indicates.  The Magi anticipated His coming as the Redeemer and King.  Now, we look forward to or anticipate His coming as King and Bridegroom.  In short, this conjunction tells all who have eyes to see that the promise of reigning with Him as His Bride will be given to those who chase the Lord and catch Him.

There may well be prophetic implications for this conjunction, as this sign will take place on the night of June 30th and early in the morning of July 1st.  July 1st (7/1) has always been a date for us to be watching, because it is a sign of the coming Feast of Trumpets, or Rosh HaShanah (1).  Keep in mind that Jesus was born on the Feast of Trumpets, September 11th, 3 BC., and that the Feast of Trumpets is also the prophesied day (the so called "unknown day" of Matthew 25:13) for the resurrection of the dead.  It appears that this conjunction could be a sign of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture or Resurrection (new birth).  Does God do anything by chance? God "worketh all things after the counsel of his own will" (Ephesians 1:11), so is it not prophetic that this “sign” (as described herein) falls exactly on 7/1, the reminder date of the Feast of Trumpets!

Some websites ( are reporting that there has not been a brighter, closer planetary conjunction of Jupiter and Venus for over 2,000 years – since the Star of Bethlehem!!

When we think of how closely this conjunction resembles the one that the magi witnessed and then we combine that with the prophetic implications of other current celestial events occurring in 2015 (see, we can’t help but lift up our eyes and see that our redemption is drawing nigh!

(1)  The “Appointed time” / “Feast” of TrumpetsLev. 23:24,25  Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall you have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.  Note the 7th month on the Hebrew calendar this year is in September (and different year to year) - on our Gregorian calendar, July 1 or 7/1 is thus a reminder of Lev. 23:24,25.

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
… “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.”
