Last week, Trump handed Iran all the reason needed to attack Israel. Trump called moving the US embassy to Jerusalem a matter of “peace and security”, but Iran called it a “violation of a Muslim holy site” and said they will do something about it.
What ensued afterward was a bunch of organized protests all over the planet. Tel Aviv, Israel, Amman, Jordan, Beirut, Lebanon, Toronto, Canada, London, UK, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Cape Town, South Africa, Jakarta, Indonesia. Some very well selected major cities on the earth. And the media outlets keep calling these protests ‘eruptions’. Really?
Go to any website carrying photos of the protests and take a look. What do you see?
Back in the day – the 1960s when America was the testing ground for protests that “erupt” – the thing I remember the most was those hand-written signs with the bad spelling. You have to understand that I was a spelling bee queen. I’ve lost that edge as I got older, but back then spelling errors drove me nuts as they still do! I think I saw every one of them!
That was then. This is now. And I’m NOT seeing hastily scribbled protest signs with bad spelling and sloppy slogans. No. What I see now are professionally printed and glued-on signs on sticks. In other words, organized protests!
Why is this? It is because neither Arabs or Persians care about the plight of the Palestinians except for the yardage they gain in using them to show just how much the Arabs and Persians hate Israel. So, the protests are being orchestrated, planned and pulled off by those with an agenda.
The New World Order governments of the earth are making the best use of this Jerusalem embassy issue. It wouldn’t surprise me if the U.S. government, Trump’s own administration, is making use of it.
So, the protest organizers recruit protestors, pay them and bus them to the areas where the staging is done to get it on film. People have to literally be paid to protest and get transported to their protests. This has begun happening in America, too, as we have seen starting in the Obama era. It was happening before that, but the New World Order has become more blatant over the years. They don’t care who knows what they’re doing. They even flaunt what they’re doing starting with the famous George HW Bush New World Order speech on January 29, 1991. Ever since then, the New World Order has just become a well-known street gang – globally, of course. For them, it is good to keep the unemployment numbers high, especially with the young, third world folks, so they will accept this menial job of being a New World Order patsy protestor!
Why would Trump do such a thing? Why would any government want to stir up trouble? Have you ever heard the word ‘propaganda’? Let’s start with the various western New World Order governments to see why they want to stir up trouble.
For their part, the western New World Order governments can use it for population control. What do I mean by that? Well, you know, there are American and other western folks living in all these countries. I know some who refused to come out of their apartments for 3 days for fear. Fear is the biggest controller the beast governments of the earth have to keep people in line.
These governments will also want to sway public opinion one way or the other. If the government is against Trump’s Jerusalem decision, it will want to sway public opinion against Trump and the United States. If the government is favorable to Trump’s decision, the protests can be used to sway public opinion in favor of his decision. Hang on. I’m going to explain more about what I mean.
Swaying public opinion is easily done by the press. It just depends on how they spin the stories.
As for why Trump might use protests after his decision has to do with Jerusalem itself. The more protests there are and the bigger they are, the more leverage Trump will have with the Jewish government to force them into making a peace deal with the Palestinians.
The trouble is that no one really wants a peace deal. Not the U.S. Not the Arabs. Not the Persians. Not the UN or its Security Council. Nope. Each has its own reasons for keeping the Palestinian issue stirred up and each uses this false-flag issue for its own purposes which is mostly to exert control over their populations and each other with war threats.
Debka says it pretty well. The Palestinian Hamas finds itself shouting alone for a massive armed uprising, raising only muted echoes in the Arab world and the Palestinian street in protest at the US president’s Jerusalem decision. Most adult Palestinians, when asked, admit they see no point in sending their sons in harm’s way. Yet Israel’s mainstream media astonishingly report with great bombast every Hamas threat as though a world power is threatening World War III.
The Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip have it in their power to unleash a barrage of rockets against their Israeli neighbors that would be damaging and lethal enough to trigger a major confrontation with Israel’s Defense Forces. They have done this before, but not so far now. In the exchange of blows Friday night, Dec. 8, Hamas clearly pulled its punches, showing that its rhetoric was just that. Smaller factions were allowed to fire off a few short-range rockets of low accuracy in the direction of Beersheba, Ashkelon, Ashdod and Israeli locations next door to the Gaza Strip. Most exploded on open ground or fell short while still in Gazan air space; one exploded harmlessly on a Sderot street and one was intercepted by an Iron Dome battery. Two Hamas activists were killed in Israeli retaliatory air strikes against three Hamas military facilities in the Gaza Strip.
Hamas leaders understand that their leeway for extreme action is narrower than ever before. They are a lone voice, are woefully short of funds, have no real backers in the Arab world and their popularity in the wider Palestinian community is waning.
Let’s stop here for a moment. Hamas has lost its Arab support for the Palestinian cause. The danger in the north with the 4+1 coalition has changed all that. Hamas is hanging on by a shoestring via Iran’s support, but this won’t help Hamas in the long run because it is a Sunni organization and Iran is a Shi’ite nation. The Sunnis and Shi’ites are preparing for war.
By the time the anti-US, anti-Israel Palestinian protests reached their third day, Saturday, the following picture was taking shape:
The Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) decided against taking up Hamas’ call to arms when together they could have ignited a major conflagration. After all, President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital left in ruins the diplomatic campaign he led for years as his signature for unilateral recognition of Palestinian statehood.
Let’s stop here again. Three days is a long enough period of time for Donald Trump to have contacted Abbas with perhaps promises of further future announcements to be made regarding the Israeli-Palestinian issue. I suspect, as I have said many times, that part of the dividing of the land will entail a U.S. embassy in East Jerusalem. Time will tell whether I am right about that (and I will be talking more about UN Resolution 181 later on in the broadcast), but it has occurred to me that Abbas refused to pick up Hamas’s call to arms because Abbas knows something Hamas doesn’t.
In the phone conversation he held with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh on Wednesday, shortly after Trump announced his decision on Jerusalem, Abu Mazen briefly considered joining the Hamas call for an extreme response. He pulled back when he realized that Haniyeh’s plan was to use the Jerusalem crisis as his pretext for hanging onto rule in the Gaza Strip. This would have wrecked the “reconciliation” deal in which Egypt invested long months as broker, in the hope of unifying the two Palestinian factions and bringing the Gaza Strip under Palestinian Authority rule. When Abu Mazen saw Haniyeh’s game, he backed away. The anti-Trump rallies in West Bank towns Thursday and Friday were consequently modest, compared with so many convulsions in the past.
Here we have Debka’s analysis of Abbas’s reason for not arming the PA along side Hamas. These political situations always have more than one factor. It is no surprise to me that Abbas needed to thwart Hamas’s effort to turn the reconciliation deal brokered by Egypt upside down.
Iran too pulled back from putting in its oar for inflaming Palestinian ire, because it has bigger fish to fry” (remember I said Iran is getting ready for war with the King of the South, Saudi Arabia) – “even through Hizballah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah pushed hard for Tehran to instruct Hamas and the Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip to escalate the anti-Trump protest. Tehran’s attention is fixed on the turning-point in the Yemen civil war at Saudi Arabia’s back door, generated by the Revolutionary Guards success, in conjunction with Hizballah, to assassinate former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, after he switched sides from the Houthi insurgents to the Saudi-led coalition fighting them. The Houthis were then directed to wipe out the opposition by executing hundreds of officers and commanders loyal to Saleh.
The Palestinians are also small beer in the calculations of most members of the Arab League. Arab foreign ministers convened in Cairo Saturday, Dec. 9, for an “emergency session on Jerusalem.” But it was summoned by the Palestinian Authority and one other Arab leader, Jordan’s King Abdullah, who has fallen out with most of his colleagues, badly enough for Riyadh and Abu Dhabi, for instance, to cut of financial assistance to Amman.
Abu Mazen – (that’s Mahmoud Abbas for those who haven’t heard that name before) – found Saudi Arabia and other senior Arab League members otherwise engaged. Crown Prince Muhammed Bin Salman was busy replacing Adel Al-Jubeir as foreign minister with his brother, Prince Khaled bin Salman, and Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi showed no interest in the session. Abbas quickly saw which way the wind was blowing in the Palestinians Arab hinterland.
See… The people who should care don’t care. And those who shouldn’t care, do care. And they’re the ones stirring the pot. So, if Saudi Arabia, the Arab League and Egypt are not the ones who are stirring the pot, then who is?
Well… The only suspects left are those in the old Western New World Order that President Donald Trump seems to be the figure head of right now. I’ll tell you why in just minute. Now back to Debka.
In New York, too, the emergency UN Security Council session on Jerusalem, after hearing the PA’s complaint against President Trump, ended with a joint expression of “disappointment” by the ambassadors of France, Germany, Italy, Sweden and the UK. “We disagree with the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” they said. “The status of Jerusalem must be determined through negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians leading to a final status agreement.” After that, the “disappointed” powers returned home.
All the same, it would be premature to completely rule out a major escalation being sparked by some unforeseen event. For instance, a cell of Tanzim, the armed wing of Abbas’ Fatah party, may decide to join Hamas, the Iranian-backed Jihad Islami and the extremist Popular Front – all of them with a long record of terrorism – for a spectacular terrorist attack on an Israeli or American target. For the time being, there is no sign of this building up. The ordinary Palestinian man in the street has a job to go to on Sunday and appears to have settled on a moderate demonstration of protest for Trump’s Jerusalem strategy.
That ends the Debka article.
Ok. It appears that some of the other major players in the old western New World Order don’t care about Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel, either. Again, this narrows the field of who is stirring up the orchestrated protests to the White House.
Do you remember that I did a report on Trump’s old buddy, Roger Stone? Remember Stone’s partner in crime, Paul Manafort, who is being investigated for money laundering and Russian involvement in Trump’s campaign? Do you remember how much time Trump has spent talking to, working with Vladimir Putin of Russia trying to mend the fences? Do you suppose that Trump needed a deflector to distance himself from that problem? We’ll talk more about this in a minute because there’s more.
Right after his speech last week, Trump did something that didn’t get a bunch of press! Hmmm… What could that be?
After making his spectacular announcement, President Trump went ahead and signed the waiver to put off building the embassy in Jerusalem for another 6 whole months! Yes! That’s right! Same thing as usual. The thing he said about the past Presidents not doing what they should have regarding the embassy move is the very thing he did in the very next room where he made his speech right after making his speech!
Why? Well, I just told you that the governments of the world want to control people, but they mostly want to control the western press and the Jerusalem government. Trump needs favorable opinion and, believe it or not, lots of protests around the world makes him look like a real hero! He’s the “outsider”, remember? The guy who “bucks the system” and the status quo and is not part of the “good ‘ol boys club”. This Jerusalem thing just fell right into his sleazy hands and, boy, did he make good use of it!
Not only did he deflect the Congressional investigation, but he also strengthened his position so that his strong voting block won’t allow him to be impeached. That’s right. This Jerusalem announcement also had something to with the possibility of Trump and Pence being impeached.
The same week that Trump made his uproarious announcement there was a vote in Congress over impeaching him and Mike Pence.
The House of Representatives overwhelmingly rejected an attempt to impeach President Trump after a liberal Texas congressman forced a vote on his effort. Democratic Rep. Al Green, who has repeatedly called for the president’s removal, introduced two articles of impeachment against Trump on Wednesday. But lawmakers immediately voted to effectively kill his resolution, with 364 voting to table it and 58 Democrats voting to move ahead.
And now you know why Mike Pence was in the room for a speech that normally would have been given only by the President alone. Trump was protecting Pence by putting him in the same political spotlight as himself.
Donald Trump just bought himself some Presidential insurance with his biggest block of voters. It had nothing to with doing the right thing, or that he loves Israel so much, or that he loves the Jews and wants them to have what is near and dear to them – a recognized Jerusalem capital with a U.S. embassy to prove it! No! It was orchestrated to keep his voters happy and to keep the investigators and impeachers at bay.
Take note, though. Donald Trump did not say that Israel is a Jewish State. You see, if he had said that, there would have been a for-real war, not just orchestrated protests. Saudi Arabia might have backed out of the alliance deal with Israel and Persia might have just gone ahead and declared war on both Israel and United States. It was very clever for Trump to avoid the issue of Israel being a Jewish State.
The one with the most to gain from stirring up the protests is Trump himself. On one hand, he is satisfying the Jews with that announcement. With the other, he is showing them the great need for them to make a concession in dividing the city because of those protests that ensued.
Zechariah 12:3 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.
What does it mean for Jerusalem to be a burdensome stone? It means to use it for one’s own gain. To make use of it like it is just a piece of real estate. Oh! Wait a minute! That’s exactly what Trump is! He’s a real estate mogul turned old western New World Order big shot in the White House!
Trump was not only careful to say nothing about Israel being a Jewish State, but he also steered clear of the issues and sovereignty and borders. Why? I mean, if you’re going to go so far as to rub the Jerusalem grain the wrong way, why not just say that Jerusalem should remain one cohesive city, undivided?
That is because Trump is willing, so he says, to let the parties decide the borders. If this is truly his stance, it doesn’t matter any more than if he had implemented Resolution 181, the partition plan, himself!
Joel 3:2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
God has an issue with those who part his land, not with those who declare that Israel is one Jewish State undivided! Thus, Trump just pulled the United States further into God’s fury.
Some people believe Jerusalem was a divided city from the beginning in 1947. But that is not what that Resolution says. Here is the wording from the Yale Law website:
The City of Jerusalem shall be established as a corpus separatum under a special international regime and shall be administered by the United Nations.
Resolution 181 actually keeps Jerusalem as ONE city undivided but under the control of the UN. The peace deals that have been tried by many US Presidents actually does away with Resolution 181 and divides the city rather than keeping it together. But that isn’t quite correct, either.
What the peace deals want is Jerusalem as it is today, in modern times, to be divided. But when the Bible speaks about Jerusalem, it is speaking of only the walled city where Temple Mount is contained within those walls. Whatever and however the United Nations defines Jerusalem, the walled city is what God means. Any part of Israel that includes the walled city going into the hands of the United Nations, and completely out of control of Israel, is against God’s will.
We know that Temple Mount is within the city of Jerusalem’s walls because of the sacrifices that could be eaten by the offeror, like Passover or a thanksgiving offering. These had to be eaten within the city’s walls. This is because no one other than priests could eat within the Temple’s walls. The walled city of Jerusalem was an extension of the Temple.
Pilgrims coming for Pesach were required to eat the sacrifices within the city’s walls. Thus, when YHVH mentions Jerusalem and calls it His holy city, He isn’t just making this up. Jerusalem, the walled city, has a kedushah that no other place on earth has.
In Joel 3:2, YHVH says they parted His land. He does not want His land parted – Resolution 181 Partition Plan – but He also does not want His city to fall into the hands of the United Nations.
However, the United Nations will likely get to be the overseer of Jerusalem Old City and Temple Mount when the land is partitioned. Right now, Jordan has control of Temple Mount, but not Jerusalem Old City. The Old City is in the hands of the Jews. This is why God has not done anything about the City yet. He will, though, when the antichrist takes the City and Temple Mount out of Jordan’s and Israel’s control.
Trump is walking on dangerous ground taking up Jerusalem as a political tool to wield in his favor in a land that YHVH says is end times Babylon. Be careful out there, you Babylonians who think you’re Americans!
Meanwhile, the politicians will continue to make a show of trying to create peace in the Middle East by promoting the Israel-Palestinian problem as the cause of the trouble between the Shi’ite 4+1 coalition and the Sunnis in the south, according to the Times of Israel.
Yep. And there you have it. More when I return from this commercial break.
The Washington Post weighed in on the outcome of Trump’s announcement. It’s a little different than mine because mine is from the Biblical perspective, but even the secular folks know there is something amiss. And they see the danger, too. For all of Trump’s efforts to save his own skin and repair the New World Order’s breach, he is endangering Israel and the United States with every move!
Most likely, the recognition of Jerusalem will have none of the promised benefits for negotiations and relatively few of the threatened costs. This is not because Jerusalem does not matter, but rather because there is no real peace process to disrupt, little meaningful prospect for a two-state solution to squander, and little belief in U.S. neutrality to violate.
….Trump’s Jerusalem gamble is thus less about the prospects for Israeli-Palestinian peace than about whether Arab-Israeli alliance against Iran can be achieved in its absence.
Yep. Someone gets it! That’s the other benefit of Trump’s Jerusalem gambit. And you just heard it from the Washington Post. It might just be a great big push to get Israel and Saudi Arabia into each other’s laps!
The Post further says, “Israel’s tacit cooperation with Gulf states against Iran …has increasingly been brought into the open despite the absence of Israeli-Palestinian peace. The major trends in regional politics could well make this gamble pay off. Saudi Arabia and its key partners have made it clear that they view regional confrontation with Iran as their most urgent strategic priority…”
Did I just understand the Washington Post to say – without actually saying it – that Trump just set up a scenario whereby Israel will be in a war with Saudi Arabia against Iran? Is that what he and the Saudis are planning? If so, do you think that YHVH’s anger will come into His face, as it says in Ezekiel 38:18? We’ll get to that in a minute when I explain how the Gog war and the Daniel 11 war are connected.
You just heard the Debka article say that the Saudis had no interest in protesting Trump’s move to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, even though Trump didn’t call Israel the undivided capital of Israel. Nonetheless, didn’t you think that was uncharacteristic of the Saudis – to be so docile over this great, big, earth-shaking announcement? Or do you think it’s possible that the Saudis and Trump are simply manipulating the Israelis into position?
Trump gained a lot with the Jerusalem announcement. He solidified his base, satisfied his voting constituency, deflected a future attempt by Congress to impeach him or Pence and deflected the political blame for the Russian election debacle and money laundering allegations away from himself. And, with that same swath, may have clinched the Israel-Saudi alliance against Iran.
Trump may think he’s done well, but the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob may be another story altogether.
According to Juan Cole dot com, …let us consider the Saudi cold war with Iran. Given the open Saudi signals of cooperation with Israel against Tehran and given the Al Saud’s embrace of Trump, Riyadh is implicated in the Jerusalem decision whether they like it or not. In the propaganda wars between Iran and Saudi Arabia, Iran just got a big boost.
This will be seen as another provocation by the King of the South to the King of the North, perhaps even a decision-making provocation wherein Iran determines not “if”, but “when”.
Dan 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.
Most recent provocation: In Lebanon, the Saudis had tried and failed to break up the national unity government in which Shiite, Christian and Sunni officials serve. To the extent that Riyadh openly marked Saad Hariri, the prime minister, as a creature of the Saudis, they did him some harm with the Lebanese people. He has rescinded his forced resignation and hastily issued a stinging rebuke of Washington over Jerusalem. But it rings hollow given his identification with the Saudi-Israeli-American axis.
So, if the Lebanese have to take sides on this one, it won’t be the Saudi-Israeli-American side. Therefore the Shiite leader Hassan Nasrallah is strengthened internally by this move, the opposite of what the Saudis were going for. Thank you Mssrs. Trump and Pence.
What About Iran?
Once Trump gets Iran ruffled enough, he won’t need to worry about his political position or his money bags because he’ll have more troubles than he can count.
Rouhani: Iran “will not tolerate a violation of Islamic sanctities,” he said in reference to Trump’s Jerusalem announcement.
“Muslims must stand united against this major plot.”
The only Muslims who will stand with Iran against Trump’s “plot” are Shi’ites.
The Middle East is divided along an east-west demarcation line that runs along the Israel-Jordan-Saudi Syria border. North of this line is the 4+1 coalition of Shi’ite nations backed by Russia. South of it is Israel and the Sunni Arabs with their coalition of Arab nations who are backed by the USA.
The entire planet is being drawn into the 1400-year-old war between the Shi’ites and the Sunnis over Mohamed’s succession and Trump is helping them do it. He’s doing exactly what Obama did!
More from Washington Post:
The key question is whether Arab regimes do anything more to protest the recognition, or return to cooperation with the United States and Israel against Iran once the passions have faded. The Trump administration is probably right that they will do so quickly, barring the emergence of serious, sustained Palestinian mobilization that forces them into a tougher stance.
This is not to say that there won’t be any blowback from Trump’s announcement. There might well be. But I suspect that most Arab states in the Middle East care a lot less about the Palestinian cause than they claim, and are willing to keep the inevitable protests under tight control.
Trump is, fundamentally, asking Arab states to accept [the current status of no Israel-PA peace deal, Israel continuing to build settlements, and no Palestinian right of return] privately, if not publicly, in return for a full-court press against Iran. Likewise, the gift of Jerusalem is primarily a gesture to maintain Israel’s confidence in the United States even as Trump cozies up with the Saudi coalition. Given the realities on the ground, I suspect that nearly all parties in the Middle East are willing to make this deal.
That was from the Washington Post. I have been saying for weeks that Trump is using Jerusalem as a pawn in his deal-making. But not just in deal-making. He NEEDS a war, now, with Russia who he thinks the U.S. can beat. Why? Because it appears Putin isn’t willing to heal the New World Order breach and come, once again, under the auspices of the old “good ‘ol boys club”. Putin is continuing with his new eastern New World Order.
Trump is deliberately pushing on Iran using the only issue that Muslims care about – the successor to Mohamed. Will it be Shi’ite or will it be Sunni?
I think it’s possible that Trump has even promised the Saudis a seat at the “high” table of the old western New World Order once they defeat Iran and the U.S. defeats Russia. Trump is counting on the Saudis and the west getting what they want – total global hegemony that the old western New World Order had before Obama messed it up.
The problem with Trump’s, and the Saudis’ plan, is that the scripture says it will backfire. The Saudis will be defeated, and by default, so will the United States, both economically and militarily.
Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital will hasten the country’s destruction, Iran’s defense minister said on Monday, while a top Revolutionary Guards commander phoned two Palestinian armed groups and pledged support for them.
How Might This Affect Gog In The Land Of Israel?
I’ve said for months now that my insight into the Gog of the land of Magog war is different than it was a few years ago. Gog, I believe, enters Israel to guard Israel. But it’s a pretense for something else, some other ulterior motive.
In fact, a few months after I first began reporting that insight, Gog did, indeed, build a military base in Israel’s Negev desert. The news article said that the US base was there to guard Israel. Go figure. That’s what Ezekiel 38:7 said, too.
Ezekiel 38 says also says that Gog wants “spoil” and a “prey”. Oh my goodness. It has come to me this week that the spoil is U.S. dominance in the Middle East, governing from Jerusalem, and the prey is Iran and Russia.
I used to say the spoil was Israel’s oil and gas. That is still true, but the U.S. wants full control of all the Middle East’s fossil fuels, including Israel’s. And right now, Trump and the Saudis are stalking Iran and Russia!
Evangelicals and Rabbis are correct about Trump being a type of the Persian King Cyrus. Last week, I explained about beast governments. One understanding I hoped you would take away from that is that each succeeding beast government was not its own, but was a composite from all the former beast governments that had occupied Israel.
That Medo-Persian bear is a great example. She has 3 ribs in her mouth. What were those ribs? They were the 3 former empires that had occupied Israel and oppressed YHVH’s people. Those 3 ribs represented Egypt, Assyria and Babylon. That bear had ingested, as it were, all of the elements that made those empires so great and so fierce.
That is the way of the current American Babylon. While she is end times Babylon, she is also of all those previous beast governments. Trump, as Cyrus, is doing what Cyrus did – occupying Israel. But this time, the one occupying Israel is none other than Gog. Hang in here with me. You’ll see what I mean in a minute.
Consider that, if the Rabbis are right about Gog being the President of the United States, then Iran will do everything it can to have a war with Gog, the United States. This is because Iran views the U.S. as big Satan and Israel as little Satan. The Shi’ites believe that the U.S. and Israel are the root of all the world’s problems and must be gotten rid of.
This could be a factor in the Gog-Magog war because Gog will be in the West Bank – the mountains of Israel (Ezekiel 38:8) – probably saying they are there to keep the peace spoken of in this verse. West Jerusalem will put the U.S. right there – in the mountains of Israel just like God said would happen.
If I am right that Gog is not coming to attack Israel, but to take what can be had – the spoil and the prey, on the pretense of guarding Israel, that means Iran could attack Israel just to get to U.S. forces.
Ezekiel 38:7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard.
In the first verses of Ezekiel 38, it isn’t that Gog has alliance with Persia and the other nations listed, but that because Gog is now situated in Israel (as the U.S. now is just recently), Persia and the others nations will come to counter Gog, to fight with Gog on Israel’s soil. So, Gog is not attacking Israel militarily (although he is interested in the “spoil” and the “prey”). Gog is being a “guard” and Gog is causing Persia and those nations to attack Israel. And YHVH will blame Gog for that!
Why will God blame Gog for Persia attacking Israel? Because Gog has picked up the “Jerusalem stone”.
Zechariah 12, which contains verse 3 about the burdensome Jerusalem stone, is related to chapter 38 of Ezekiel.
As you know, the Gog name is common in Germany and not in Russia.
Here is the result for the ‘Gog’ surname in Germany…
Here is the result for the ‘Gog’ surname in Russia…
Notice anything missing?
In case you missed it, let me show you up close…
In case you can’t see that the ‘Gog’ surname is missing in the Russian surname search, let me enlarge it for you…
Thus, the U.S. President that is most likely to be from Gog will be a German. It just so happens that President Trump is actually of German descent. His surname is ‘Drumpf’.
So, this big announcement that America’s German President just made regarding Jerusalem has just set up Israel and the world for the next step in God’s end time plan. I believe the Rabbis are correct that the United States being Gog and Donald Drumpf is, I believe, a descendant of the tribe of Gog who migrated through the land of Magog (modern Turkey) all the way to Germany, although I cannot prove it.
Christian commentators have been perplexed by Gog’s identity. Here is a quote from a really good commentary, the IVPBBC, “The identification of Gog has perplexed commentators for centuries.”
Why don’t they read their Bibles? Why don’t they know that Gog is a descendant of Reuben? Why don’t they know that Gog is a Hebrew who disobeyed God and left Israel before the end of the Assyrian captivity, before Sennacharib could take him into exilic punishment with the rest of the northern tribes? Why don’t they know that Gog tried to escape God’s punishment?
1Chronicles 5:3 The sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel were, Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi.
1Chronicles 5:4 The sons of Joel; Shemaiah his son, Gog his son, Shimei his son,
Gog was a living descendant of Reuben when Chronicles was being written. Joel was the Chief of the tribe and Gog was one of his sons! Verse 6 gives us further details about this Reubenite family saying that Beerah was the family’s prince and that he was carried away by Tilgathpilneser, king of Assyria. It isn’t until the end of the chapter that we finally discover that Pul, King of Assyria, took the Reubenites, Gadites and Manassites into captivity.
Some time passes between the listing of Beerah as having gone into captivity and the rest of the Reubenites going into captivity. We don’t know how much time, but there were wars listed after Beerah is listed as going into captivity. Going to war takes some time, even if it is only a few months. However, the context of the chapter is that there was enough time for part of the family to have escaped from Israel before Tilgathpilneser made a big push to take the majority of the tribes of Reuben, Gad and Manesseh captive.
When Gog left Israel, where did he go? To the land of Magog on the south side of the Black Sea. That’s why he is referred to as Gog from the land of Magog. Later, the tribe moved to the north side of the Black Sea where they became known as Scythians and later, Scandinavians.
The Gog family moved further north into what is now Germany. More info at Gog-Magog: The Birthright Wars, 1 & 2.
There is an important point to be made in all of this. The ‘Gog’ of 1 Chronicles 5 is the same ‘Gog’ in Ezekiel 38. How do I know this?
Ezekiel 38:4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
God said He will turn Gog back. Back to where? Back to where Gog was. That’s what it means to be brought back. You’ve been there and you’re not there now, so you have to be brought back.
God will bring Gog back to Israel. God will literally pull Gog back to Israel by bringing him forth with a great army. A person can’t be made to come back or to return to place he has never been. Gog was in Israel because Gog is a Hebrew, a descendant of the Tribe of Reuben.
So, we don’t have to wonder who Gog is anymore! He is a super disobedient Hebrew who tried to wriggle his way out of being punished with all the rest of the idolatrous House of Israel in the Assyrian captivity!
God doesn’t like it when we refuse to obey Him and then we try to figure out how to get out of being punished by Him. This is why Gog is brought back in the end of days. God forces Gog back into the land of Israel to punish him IN the land that he thought to escape 2700+ years ago.
Now, in the end of days (the Gog war is an end times war), we find that end times Babylon has a German, and possibly descendant of Gog, President. We also find that this President has taken some inordinate steps regarding guarding Israel militarily and that he is enamored, for political purposes, with Jerusalem. He is also using Jerusalem as a tool to make war.
Also, there is the issue of Reuben’s birthright that we have been reading about in recent Torah Portions. Don’t you think Reuben might want his birthright back? You know… The birthright he lost to the tribe of Judah? Isn’t it possible that this is another birthright issue in the family of Abraham? We have the issue between Isaac and Ishmael. Then there’s the one between Esau and Jacob. There is probably a birthright issue between Reuben, through Gog, with Judah, too! See my teaching on this subject at this link.
I hope this broadcast has shed some new light on what is happening in the Middle East. It is for us, in the end of days, to watch what happens so we will not be taken unaware.
