Title: Israel 2014

Israel 2014
Analysis Israel, Palestinians face hard choices
Associated Press, January 1, 2014
As U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry returns to
the region Thursday, the American message to the
Israeli and Palestinian leaders is clear It's
time to start making hard decisions. Kerry is
bringing his own ideas for the outlines of a
peace deal, and early indications are that the
plan will include hard-to-swallow choices for
both sides. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu would likely have to recognize Israel's
pre-1967 war frontier as the starting point for
border talks with the Palestinians, an
ideological reversal that would put him on a
collision course with his hardline
base. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas fears
he'll be pressured to recognize Israel as the
homeland of the Jewish people, a step he believes
would abrogate the rights of Palestinian refugees
and their descendants. A senior State Department
official said Kerry would not impose ideas or
seek final answers on this trip.
So with Americas influence and power weakening
it is strange to see how they are using all their
effort to push the Palestinians and Israelis into
a peace agreement. America gave just 9 months to
reach an agreement. There are only 4 months
left. Any final agreement will hinge on Israel
pulling out of the West Bank and giving up half
of Jerusalem. These are Palestinian red lines and
America (and the rest of the world) agree with
this in principle. Israel is fighting a battle
that cannot be won on her own. Only the
intervention of Jesus will save Israel from total
destruction. The last time Israel withdrew from
land was under the leadership of Ariel Sharon. He
actually agreed to divide the land. Hours later
he went into a coma. That was 8 years ago. He is
still in a coma but now very near death. There
are those who believe his death will signal
coming tribulation on Israel. A bit like the
death of Methuselah before the flood came.
  • Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come
    upon us. Therefore shall Zion Jerusalem for
    your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem
    shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house
    as the high places of the forest.

    Ariel is a name for Jerusalem. Sharon
    means a plain or a field.

(Micah 312)
'King of Israel,' Ariel Sharon, Dead at 85
NewsMax, January 11, 2014
Ariel Sharon   the military hero and prime
minister who was among the most controversial
figures in the history of Israel has died,
eight years after the massive stroke that left
him comatose. He was 85. He died Saturday at
Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, outside of
Tel Aviv, where he has been cared for since
January 2006. Over his long career Sharon served
as Israel's 11th prime minister, headed several
ministries including Defense, and rose to the
rank of general in the Israeli army, seeing
action in all four of Israel's major wars.
Reviled by Arabs over his hardline policies and
viewed with a mixture of respect and suspicion by
many Israelis, Sharon had been on life support at
the hospital far from the public gaze.

In this WWW we are going to look at the possible
significance of the death of Ariel Sharon. Ariel
Sharon was born in Palestine (as it was then
known) in 1928. He was a platoon commander in the
Israeli military at the outset of the 1948 War of
Independence. He headed Israel's most powerful
armoured division as a major general in the 1967
Six-Day War. In the 1973 Yom Kippur war Sharons
bold manoeuvre in crossing the Suez Canal and
encircling the Egyptian army was considered the
key to Israels victory. It led to the Israeli
public giving him the nickname The king of
Israel and The Lion of God. Crowds swarmed the
streets in 1973 singing a revised Hebrew song
called David King of Israel and changed it to
Ariel King of Israel. During the 70s and
80s as Secretary for Agriculture he encouraged
building on the West Bank. Eventually he became
the head of the Likud party. In 2001 he became
prime minister of Israel. Two years later he
promised to create a Palestinian state.
  • Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD I will
    even gather you from the people, and assemble you
    out of the countries where ye have been
    scattered, and I will give you the land of
    Israel. Ariel Sharon was instrumental in
    securing the whole land of Israel. His conquests
    in 1967 and 1973 ensured Israels survival in the
    land given to them by God. God was undoubtedly
    with him in these victories. But in his old age
    Ariel Sharon trod a different path.

(Ezekiel 1117)
Sharon causes religious crisis over Gaza plan
Daily Telegraph, August 15, 2005
The decision by Israeli Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon to pull Israeli settlers out of the Gaza
Strip and part of the West Bank has shaken
Israel's Orthodox Jewish community to its
foundations. Never before has an Israeli
government relinquished what the religious
population universally regards as holy land,
promised to the Jews by God. The move challenges
core religious beliefs, leaving many Orthodox
Jews - soldiers among them - in spiritual turmoil
and clamouring for guidance as to how to respond.

For the first time since the Jewish state was
founded, Israel was voluntarily uprooting its own
people and preparing to transfer the land to the
Palestinians. It was a turning point for the
Zionist project, when Israel admitted defeat in
attempting to ensure a Jewish majority across the
whole of Eretz Yisrael, the land historically
claimed by the People of the Book. And who was
the man behind this withdrawal? The Lion of God
Ariel Sharon! What an amazing turn around. Sharon
who had led Israel to such amazing victories was
now withdrawing from land given to Israel by God.
We may ask if Gaza is part of Israel that God had
promised his people? Well we are told in Exodus
23 v 31 I will set thy bounds from the Red sea
even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from
the desert unto the river for I will deliver the
inhabitants of the land into your hand and thou
shalt drive them out before thee. The sea of the
Philistines Gaza. The area of the ancient
Philistines WAS included in the land. Sharon sent
in the soldiers who physically pulled Jews out of
the land (and parts of the West Bank). The
picture above shows soldiers weeping as they
removed their own people. As Exodus 23 says it
was was God who drove out the inhabitants of the
land. But now here was an Israeli leader - the
first in all history to give away
(voluntarily!) land given to the Jews by God....
  • Ought ye not to know that the LORD God of Israel
    gave the kingdom over Israel to David for ever,
    even to him and to his sons by a covenant of
    Ariel Sharon should
    have known this but it was about to get worse.

(2 Chronicles 135)
Prime minister plans to draw 'the final shape of
Daily Telegraph, November 27, 2005
Sixty years after the state of Israel was
created, Ariel Sharon is effectively
drawing its final borders, say his advisers,
diplomats, friends and the
cartographers. They believe that Mr Sharon, who
as a general played a
leading role in the expansion of Israel's
borders in successive wars since
1948, is now - as a politician -
determined to set the country's hitherto elastic
frontiers in stone. What
is more, judging by his track record and the way
public opinion is shifting, there is a real
chance that he may succeed. In 2002, he ordered
the construction of the controversial barrier -
an 18ft high combination of concrete wall and
chain fence that snakes through the West Bank.
Over the summer his government successfully
oversaw the withdrawal of the thousands of Jewish
settlers from Gaza.

With the withdrawal of Gaza complete Sharon
planned to complete the process by finally
dividing the land of Israel in two. And this is
where is gets interesting All this is recorded
in the Daily Telegraph. At about 3pm on January
4th 2006 a man called Otniel Schneller was
ushered into Ariel Sharons office. He was a
senior cartographer known as the map maker. He
had the final detailed plans for the future
borders of Israel. It detailed the withdrawal
this time not of Gaza but of the vast majority of
the West Bank and some parts of Jerusalem. The
meeting lasted 1 ½ hours at the end of it
Sharon agreed the map would form the basis of
Israels disengagement of the West Bank and the
creation of a Palestinian State. Two hours later
Sharon suffered a massive stroke and went into a
coma. Coincidence? The coma lasted almost exactly
8 years. He died on Saturday 11th January 2014.
Coincidence? Read on.

  • Because, even because they have seduced my
    people, saying, Peace and there was no peace
    and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed
    it with untempered morter
    Sharon promised peace. Sharon built a
    wall. Verse 13 tells us the wall will be
    destroyed by God.

(Ezekiel 1310)
Israeli-Palestinian peace talks at crunch time
Washington Post, January 2, 2014
The United States will help Israel and the
Palestinians establish fixed, defined
parameters for a permanent peace deal, Secretary
of State John F. Kerry said Thursday, as troubled
negotiations enter a new year and lurch toward a
spring deadline for an accord. Five months into
the talks that he pushed both sides to begin last
summer, Kerry is stepping into a more direct role
as mediator. The immediate goal is an agreed
framework to guide the final and most difficult
phase of talks on how to settle the decades-old
conflict, he said. This is not mission
impossible, Kerry said at the outset of his 10th
visit to Israel as the United States top
diplomat. He arrived as news spread that former
Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon is near
So we are now back up to date. 8 years ago Ariel
Sharon with huge public support was pressing
ahead to divide the land of Israel. 60 of the
people in the land were in favour of what he was
doing. He was then struck down by a stroke and
remained in a coma for 8 years. Now look at the
headline and article again in the Washington
Post Here we are again 8 years later with
exactly the same situation. America is pushing
Israel to establish fixed, defined parameters
(borders) for a permanent peace deal. At the
very time Kerry arrives in Israel to persuade
Israel to do this Sharons health takes a turn
for the worse. Just days later he is dead.
Coincidence? NO. Surely God is warning those who
would divide His land of what happens to those
who try. Sharon tried he went into a coma. 8
years later they try again this time Sharon
dies. Ariel Sharons name is significant. Ariel
is a name for Jerusalem. Sharon means level or
a field or plain. Jerusalem like a field or
levelled. That is exactly what is to happen to
Jerusalem when the nations try to divide it. It
will be levelled and ploughed and made like a
  • yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not
    the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.
    Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a
    field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps,

(Micah 312)
The Rabbi, the Note and the Messiah
Israel Today, April 7, 2007
A few months before he died, one of the nations
most prominent rabbis, Yitzhak Kaduri, wrote the
name of the Messiah on a small note which he
requested would remain sealed until now. When the
note was unsealed, it revealed what many have
known for centuries Yehoshua, or Yeshua (Jesus),
is the Messiah. A few months before Kaduri died
at the age of 108, he surprised his followers
when he told them that he met the Messiah. Kaduri
gave a message in his synagogue on Yom Kippur,
the Day of Atonement, teaching how to recognize
the Messiah. He also mentioned that the Messiah
would appear to Israel after Ariel Sharons
death. (The former prime minister is still in a
coma after suffering a massive stroke more than a
year ago.) Other rabbis predict the same,
including Rabbi Haim Cohen, kabbalist Nir Ben

In 2005 while Sharon was at the height of his
power and busy withdrawing from Gaza, Israels
most loved and prominent Rabbi pronounced that
the Messiah would return AFTER the death of Ariel
Sharon. Kaduri died just a few months after
Sharon in 2006 at the age of 108. Over 300,000
people attended his funeral. One year before his
death Kaduri wrote a note that he requested
should only be opened one year after his own
death. In the note he revealed that the Messiah
was in fact Jesus! All this was reported in
Israel Today. By the time the note was opened
Ariel Sharon was in a coma. Now at his death 8
years later many in Israel are asking whether the
Messiah will come soon. We mentioned on the
previous slide about Ariel meaning Jerusalem.
Ariel is mentioned in this context in only one
chapter in the Bible. Isaiah 29. It speaks of
Ariel being the city where David lived. It speaks
of Jerusalem being bought down to the ground
(Leveled). But amazingly it also speaks of the
leaders falling into a deep sleep.
  • Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David
    dwelt!.... Yet I will distress Ariel, and there
    shall be heaviness and sorrow and it shall be
    unto me as Ariel. For the LORD hath poured out
    upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath
    closed your eyes the prophets and your rulers,
    the seers hath he covered.

(Isaiah 291-2-10)
Ariel Sharons death sparks prophecy bombshell
WND, January 18, 2014
The death of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon last week
has drawn attention to the prophecy of a
venerated Jewish spiritual
leader. When Sharon was still in
office, vibrant and in command of his faculties,
a venerated rabbi, who claimed he had met the
Messiah, predicted the Messiah would not come
until after Sharons death. Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri
died shortly after Sharon suffered a stroke that
left him comatose in 2006. But before the beloved
Kaduri died, he wrote a cryptic note in which he
named the Messiah with whom he claimed to have
had a mystical encounter. On the 108-year-old
rabbis instructions, the note was to be released
a year after his death.
We cannot know for certain what the Rabbi Kaduri
saw or heard. We do know he said that the Messiah
would return after Sharons death. We do know in
his note he revealed Jesus to be the Messiah. We
also know one scriptural precedent for a
significant death before worldwide judgment.
There has only ever been one worldwide judgment
before. The next one is coming soon. The first
one was at the time of the flood. BEFORE the
flood came a man died. His name was Methuselah.
His name means his death shall bring
judgment. He definitely died in the year the
flood came and before the flood came. His own
name spelt out judgment was coming. Ariel Sharon
might be a similar person. His own name predicts
what is coming. Judgment concerning Jerusalem.
The leveling of Jerusalem. Sharon who led Israel
to capture the land became the leader who gave
some of it away and tried to divide it in two. He
dies at the very time the world is pushing for
division again. Is all this pure chance? or is
Gods hand behind these things? you decide.


  • the world at that time was destroyed, being
    flooded with water. But by His word the present
    heavens and earth are being reserved for fire,
    kept for the day of judgment and destruction of
    ungodly menGod is patient toward you, not
    wishing for any to perish but for all to come to

Palestinian leader turns to Putin for
Palestinian state
Debkafile, January 24, 2014
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas
launched his diplomatic intifada against Israel
Thursday, January 23, on his visit to Moscow. His
meetings with President Vladimir Putin and Prime
Minister Dmitry Medvedev marked his breakaway
from the US-led peace process with Israel, four
months before it was due to expire, and signaled
his bid for Russian backing for a Palestinian
state. The Palestinian leaders defection caught
both Secretary of State John Kerry and Prime
Minister Binyamin unprepared and surprised
their intelligence agencies. Putin and Abbas
almost certainly planned in advance to drop their
bombshell on the day both Kerry and Netanyahu
were otherwise engaged at two international
events in Switzerland, Geneva 2 on Syria and the
World Economic Forum. For Putin it was a chance
to show the international community that he was
several steps ahead of the game on the three
hottest Middle East issues Irans nuclear
program, the Syrian civil conflict and the
Palestinian bid for statehood.
The Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas flew into
Moscow this week on a four day visit. During the
visit he met the Russian President, Prime
minister and Russian religious leaders. He was
seeking Russian involvement in the peace process.
As the American nine month peace process nears as
end, Abbas is seeking help from Russia to advance
his cause of a Palestinian State. Russia, with
its new Middle East influence is only to happy to
oblige. Amazingly the Bible foretold these exact
circumstances. In Ezekiel 38 we read that Gog
(the Russian leader at the time of the end eg
Putin) will be VISITED! The original word
visited means to be sought after. Abbas
VISITED Russia this week and sought their help in
removing Israel from the land

  • After many days thou Gog / Russian leader /
    Putin shalt be VISITED in the latter years
    thou shalt come into the land that is brought
    back from the sword, and is gathered out of many
    people, against the mountains of Israel, which
    have been always waste but it is brought forth
    out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely
    all of them.

(Ezekiel 131,10-11)
Russia preparing to develop Gaza gas field
AFP, January 23, 2014
In a significant political and economic
development, Palestinian
President Mahmoud Abbas met Jan. 23 with
Russian President Vladimir Putin. The meeting
came as a prerequisite to officially sign an
investment agreement aiming to develop the Gaza
offshore gas field in the Mediterranean Sea. It
is only logical to assume that this step will
raise the ire of Israel. The latter does not
appreciate the role Russia plays in the region,
especially since Israel has never come to an
agreement with Russia. AFP reported that there
were talks of investing 1 billion to develop the
Palestinian gas field. Clearly taken aback by the
news coming in fast from Moscow, Israeli official
sources said Thursday night they could not
understand how the Russians and Palestinians
came to an agreement on Mediterranean waters off
the shores of Gaza, when the rights were already
owned by British Gas.
Now this really is amazing. On the visit to
Russia this week Abbas discussed with Russia a
deal concerning gas fields that lie off the Gaza
Strip! Russian natural gas company Gazprom is
planning to produce 30 billion cubic meters of
natural gas at the site, according to Russian
news agency ITAR-TASS. The Russian engineering
firm Technopromexport was also considering an oil
development project in Ramallah in the West Bank,
according to the same report. There are two
massively significant things here. Firstly the
Palestinian Authority is not a state so is not
empowered to establish Special Economic Zones in
the Med. Russia appears to not be concerned with
this and is treating the PA as a state. Secondly
Russia is considering stepping into the West Bank
and developing oil there. Ezekiel 38 speaks of
Russia coming down to Israel to take a spoil. The
oil and gas finds are pulling Russia down they
cannot resist.
  • thou Gog / Russian leader shalt think an evil
    thought And thou shalt say, I will go up to the
    land of unwalled villages I will go to them that
    are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them
    dwelling without walls, and having neither bars
    nor gatesTo take a spoil, and to take a prey

Israeli jets suspected of attacking Syrian
missile store
Daily Telegraph, January 27, 2014
Israel is suspected of being behind an attack on
a Syrian military base that targeted a stock of
Russian-made missiles. Storerooms holding the
missiles near the port city of Latakia were hit
by Israeli war planes late on Sunday, according
to a Syrian opposition source talking to Israel
Radio. No confirmed details of the strike had
emerged last night. Official Israeli government
and military sources declined to comment on the
attack. But former Israeli Defence Forces
intelligence chief Amos Yadlin said any such
airstrike would be in keeping with Israeli policy
to intercept the transfer of advanced weapons to
Hezbollah or to Syria. "Israel has declared four
weapons system as a red line advanced air
defences, advanced and accurate ballistic
missiles, surface-to-sea advanced missiles like
Yakhont, and chemical weapons. Residents of
Latakia reported hearing loud explosions just
around midnight and there were also reports of
Israeli planes heard breaking the sound barrier.
If true this would be the fourth Israeli strike
on Syria over the past 12 months. Israel is
trying to stop the movement of missiles around
Syria. They are concerned they will fall into
Hezbollahs hands. On Friday, Jan. 24, an Israeli
intelligence officer disclosed that Israels
government was rethinking its neutrality policy
in the Syrian war owing to the massing of 30,000
al Qaeda fighters on its Syrian border. The Obama
administration announced Tuesday, Jan. 28, that
selected Syrian rebel militias would receive
American light weapons including anti-tank
rockets. As the Syrian peace conference drew to
a close on Friday it appears that America and
Israel are shifting towards more intervention in
Syria. The Bible says that there will be conflict
between Syria and Israel..

  • The fortified towns of Israela will also be
    destroyed and the royal power of Damascus will
  • All that remains of Syriab will share the fate

    Hosts. In that day Israelsc glory will grow

Is Netanyahu about to make painful concessions
Joel Rosenberg Blog, January 31, 2014
The very fact that Israeli leaders on the
centre-right of the political spectrum are
getting so anxious, even angry, strongly suggests
rumours are true The Obama administration and
the Europeans are putting enormous pressure on
the Netanyahu government behind the scenes to say
yes on to an American-crafted peace plan
and Netanyahu is seriously contemplating agreeing
to deeply painful and enormously controversial
concessions, possibly even dividing Jerusalem and
rolling Israel back to her pre-1967 borders. Many
analysts have felt for the past year that
Secretary Kerrys frenetic efforts to jump-start
the Israeli-Palestinian peace process were going
nowhere and doomed to failure. Now there is
rapidly growing evidence that Kerry has driven
the two parties into the corner, and that he
appears to be putting the most pressure on the
Israeli side to make the deepest concessions.
Joel Rosenberg is a former adviser to the Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Heres some of
the indications that Netanyahu might be about to
give away land for peace. In his address to the
U.N. General Assembly last October, Netanyahu
signalled he was preparing to make painful
concessions for peace. Two weeks ago, Israeli
Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon lashed out at the
American plan, describing it as worthless, naïve,
messianic, and dangerous. This week, Israeli
Economic Minister Naftali Bennett lashed out at
the American plan and harshly warned Netanyahu
not to give away Judea Samaria and put Jewish
settlers under Palestinian sovereignty. Such
tensions would not be flaring this intensely if
they werent so worried Netanyahu was about to
agree to far-reaching concessions. We may be
reaching a point when there is an agreement to
divide the land then Gods judgment will fall
on Israel

  • At the time of those events, says the Lord,
    when I restore the prosperity of Judah and
    Jerusalem, I will gather the armies of the world
    into the valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will
    judge them for harming my people, my special
    possession, for scattering my people among the
    nations, and for dividing up my land.

Israel wages 'war between wars' as threats
Reuters, January 31, 2014
Watching old Arab enemies reel with sectarian
insurgencies and international diplomacy capping
the Iranian nuclear drive, Israel's military is
confounded by a new challenge quiet. The
relative tranquillity, for Israel at least, poses
its own dilemma for commanders tasked with
preparing for an array of potentially
unpredictable future adversaries while trying to
stave off steep cuts to their budget. With no
hostile armies massing nearby, Israel's strategic
position is "one of the best it has ever been",
military chief Lieutenant-General Benny Gantz
told the IDC Herzliya college, venue for one of
several security conferences held this week. But
Islamist guerrillas abound on its borders and the
internal strife in neighboring Syria and Lebanon
often spills over, raising tinderbox incidents
every few days, Gantz said.

Israel is a tinderbox that could go up anytime
and yet they feel confident. Israel enjoys
economic and democratic vigour rare for the
region and in past conflicts public opinion has
quickly mobilized in favour of big, even outsized
retaliation. Its a paradox Israel feeling
confident and safe in its own abilities to defeat
its enemies. And yet at the same time seeing all
around them people who want their destruction. It
has immense wealth and military prowess compared
to other nations nearby. It also counts to some
extent on the support of the worlds greatest
superpower. This is exactly the situation
described in Ezekiel 38. Ezekiel says Israel will
be at rest and dwelling safely and without
bars and gates. All these things are there
NOW. The word rest means to be quiet. Exactly
what the report says above. Dwelling safely
means over confidently a false sense of
security. This is exactly what the report above
describes. Finally they no longer dwell in walled
villages as they once did!

  • And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of
    unwalled villages I will go to them that are at
    rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling
    without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
    The phrase unwalled VILLAGES
    has led to confusion. Israel when it was
    established lived in walled villages they no
    longer do. All elements of Ezekiel 38 are in

Kerry has declared a war on God, write rabbis
Jerusalem Post, February 5, 2014
A group of rabbis wrote in an open to letter to
US Secretary of State John Kerry that through his
current mediation efforts between Israel and
Palestinian negotiators he had declared war
against God. The rabbis warned that the secretary
must cease such activities, to avoid divine
punishment. Your incessant efforts to
expropriate integral parts of our Holy Land and
hand them over to Abbass terrorist gang, amount
to a declaration of war against the Creator and
Ruler of the universe! For G-d awarded the entire
Land of Israel to our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac
and Jacob, in order that they bequeath it, as an
everlasting inheritance, to their descendants,
the Jewish people, until the end of all time. if
you continue on this destructive path, you will
ensure your everlasting disgrace in Jewish
history for bringing calamity upon the Jewish
people. By the power of our Holy Torah, we
admonish you to cease immediately all efforts to
achieve these disastrous agreements.
According to reports being leaked out we are
close to announcements being made about the
division of the land of Israel. American sources
say the Israeli government is prepared to give up
some 90 of the territory of the West Bank. The
Israeli government has made no comments about
these leaks but each week those who are opposed
to any division are making more public statements
on the situation. The open letter by the rabbis
is another sign we are close. It is worth
remembering a key fact. When God pulls Gog down
into Israel he does so initially to punish
Israel. Every single time a nation has invaded
Israel it has been Gods doing and every time it
has been because his people had rejected Him. If
the Israeli leaders agree to divide the land -
God will judge them

  • For the leaders of the people have misled them.
    They have led them down the path of destruction.
    That is why the Lord takes no pleasure in the
    young men and shows no mercy even to the widows
    and orphans. For they are all wicked hypocrites,
    and they all speak foolishness.

(Isaiah 916-17 NLT)
Report Vatican pushing for control of
Mount Zion
Israel National News, February 19, 2014
Christian leaders reportedly pressured Israel to
over control of Mount Zion in
Jerusalem during a clandestine meeting of senior
city officials. The meeting took place Tuesday in
the office of Attorney Amnon Merhav, the
director-general of the Jerusalem municipality.
It was attended by officials from the Prime
Ministers Office, Presidents Office, Tourism
Ministry, Police, Kotel Rabbis Office, and more.
During the meeting, representatives of Christian
groups in the capital pushed Jerusalem leaders to
give the Catholic Church control over the Mount
Zion area that includes the Hall of the Last
Supper. There have been reports that Israels
government is planning to turn the building in
question over to the Vatican prior to the Popes
expected visit in May. Pope Francis is expected
to visit Israel and to lead a service in the Hall
of the Last Supper.

Zion is mention over 150 times in the Bible.
Mount Zion is mentioned 21 times. So what is
Mount Zion? In ancient times Jerusalem was
divided by a valley and there were two key
mounts. This valley is pretty much filled in with
rubble from Jerusalems many destructions. But
the two key mounts were Mount Moriah and Mount
Zion. Both part of Jerusalem. Mount Moriah was
where the temple was built. Mount Zion was where
Davids palace was built. One mount is for the
priest one mount is for the king. The other
significant mount in Jerusalem is the Mount of
Olives. Jesus ascended from here and will return
to the same spot. This mount represents the work
of the mediator. The mount of Olives will be
divided in two when Christ returns symbolising
that his work of a mediator is finished. The
saints will be united with him being made
immortal. It is interesting though that the Pope
craves the mount of the king.
  • Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole
    earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north,
    the city of the great King. (Psalm 482) Solomon
    began to build the house of the Lord at Jerusalem
    in mount Moriah (2 Chronicles 31) his feet
    shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives,
    which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the
    mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst

US has coerced Israel into 'terrible peace deal'
Daily Telegraph, February 26, 2014
Israeli parliamentarians subjected the US
ambassador to a no-holds-barred barrage of
criticism in a tense meeting that illustrated the
fierce resistance to an American-backed peace
initiative with the Palestinians. Daniel Shapiro,
Wasington's envoy to Tel Aviv, was told that the
Obama administration's conduct was "inappropriate
for an ally" and asked when the US ever stood at
Israel's side when he met the multi-party group
at the Knesset, the Israeli parliament. The
confrontation took place as Mr Netanyahu prepared
to travel next week to Washington, where he is
expected to get a first glimpse of the framework
document being prepared by John Kerry, the US
secretary of state, which is meant to pave the
way towards a final agreement. The nine-month
time-line of the negotiations expires on April
29, but Mr Kerry is seeking an extension.

As we see events move ever faster towards their
long promised conclusion we also note how quickly
things could happen in relation to Israel. A
nine month timeline was put in place last year to
get a final agreement between Israel and the
Palestinians. John Kerry is on a mission to make
this happen. He believes that the only reason
that Israel and the Palestinians have so far not
made an agreement is because he has not been
involved. He totally believes he can do this. The
nine months is up on April 29th. This week the
agreement will be shown to Netanyahu. It will
certainly involve Israel giving up half the land
- the West Bank. It may even divide Jerusalem
with some clever wording. It is interesting that
9 months was the time frame for a final
agreement. 9 months is how long a woman is
pregnant. She then goes through the pain of child
birth. The Bible says that when Jesus returns the
world will be in pain as a woman giving birth

  • When people say, There is peace and security,
    then sudden destruction will come upon them as
    travail comes upon a woman with child, and there
    will be no escape.

(1 Thessalonians 53 RSV)
Obama Netanyahu must make 'tough decisions'
BBConline, March 4, 2014
US President Barack Obama has warned that Israeli
PM Benjamin Netanyahu must make "tough decisions"
to advance peace talks with the Palestinians. At
the White House, Mr Netanyahu replied Israelis
expected him to "stand strong" and that the
Palestinians had not done their part to ease
tensions. The White House has said it hopes to
see a peace deal in place by 29 April. But there
has been little sign of progress since July, when
direct talks resumed after a three-year hiatus.
The two leaders spoke publicly on Monday ahead of
a bilateral meeting at the White House. "It is
still possible to create two states, a Jewish
state of Israel and a state of Palestine, with
people living side-by-side in peace and
security," Mr Obama said on Monday. "But it's
difficult. It requires compromise on all sides."
As the world lurches towards World War 3 we see
at the same time the final push on Israel to make
peace with the Palestinians. Obama is pushing
Netanyahu to divide the land of Israel. The
current end date for this to happen is 29th
April. Obama is telling the Israeli prime
minister that if he doesnt agree then America
cannot be expected to control the fallout. In
other words America will stop supporting Israel
to its fullest extent. This is a massive threat
to Israel. A huge deterrent to Israels enemies
is knowing that America would defend Israel. If
this changes Israel will be exposed. We dont
know for certain if Israel will agree to dividing
the land. There is a possibility they will. Joel
talks about the land being divided. This is maybe
what brings the final judgements on Israel. For
God to bring Russia against his people (and for
two thirds of them to be killed) the Jews must do
something that finally goes over a red line. We
read in Isaiah 24 that the world breaks the
everlasting covenant. This refers to God giving
the Jews the land.

  • The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants
    thereof because they have transgressed the laws,
    changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting
    And I will establish
    my covenant between me and thee and thy seed
    after thee in their generations for an
    everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and
    to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto
    thee, and to thy seed after thee, , all the land
    of Canaan Israel

Israel intercepts 'Iranian weapons shipment' to
AFP, March 5, 2014
Israel said it intercepted a ship Wednesday
carrying an Iranian shipment
of advanced rockets bound for Palestinian
militants, claiming it proved
Tehran could not be trusted in
international nuclear talks. The announcement
came hours after Israel said it struck two
Hezbollah fighters as they tried to plant a bomb
near the Syrian-Israeli frontier and just over a
week after Israel reportedly bombed the
Iran-backed group inside Lebanon for the first
time since 2006. Israel has long accused Iran and
Syria of providing military aid to Hezbollah and
to Palestinian militant groups, and the military
spokesman's office tweeted that the ship was
carrying weapons "capable of striking anywhere in
Israel". "While Iran is conducting these talks,
smiling to the international community, it
continues to arm terrorist groups, continues to
perpetrate terrorism around the world," Netanyahu
said in a statement.

According to the Jerusalem Post the rockets
originated in Syria. Iran reportedly flew the
rockets from Syria to an Iranian airfield,
trucked them to the seaport of Bander Abbas, and
shipped them to Iraq, where they were hidden in
cement sacks. The ship then set sail for Port
Sudan, near the Sudanese-Eritrean border, on a
journey that was expected to last some 10 days.
Had the shipment not been intercepted, the
rockets could have been unloaded at Port Sudan
and taken overland, through Egypt into Sinai, and
through smuggling tunnels into the Gaza Strip.
What is clear therefore is that Sudan is involved
with Iran in getting weapons to Israels enemies.
Sudan is mentioned in the Bible. Sudan is ancient
Cush. The name Cush in the AV is translated as
Ethiopia but in fact Cush is Sudan not
Ethiopia. In Ezekiel 38 we read of nations
joining Russia in attacking Israel. First on the
list is Persia (Iran). Second on the list is Cush

  • Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them all of
    them with shield and helmet (Authorised
    Version) Persia, Cush, and Put are with them,
    all of them with shield and helmet (Revised
    Standard Version)

    We see Iran and Cush (Sudan) working
    together against Israel

UK Prime minister's belief in Israel
BBConline, March 12, 2014
David Cameron has said his belief in Israel is
"unbreakable" while urging the country's
politicians to pursue a deal with Palestinians to
bring "an end of all conflict". He told Israelis
to imagine "what this land would be like if a
two-state solution was actually achieved". "We
back the compromises needed - including the halt
to settlement activity and an end to Palestinian
incitement too. And we recognise the difficult
and courageous decisions both sides are taking,
not least with Prime Minister Netanyahu's
decision to release terrorist prisoners, with all
the anguish that can bring for affected
families, he said. He said that peace would not
only bring security, but also deliver
"extraordinary" economic benefits for the Israeli
and Palestinians by enabling them to work
together and forge international trade and
business links.

The UK prime minister made his first ever visit
to Israel this week. He talks like he supports
Israel but his support is dependent on Israel
dividing the land in two. He asks Israel to
imagine what would be like living with two
states. By backing this Cameron is breaking Gods
everlasting covenant of giving the land to the
Jews. But notice what he focused on THE MONEY!
Think about the extraordinary ECONOMIC BENEFITS
says Cameron. The message isDont worry about
God and the land he has promised you (has given
you) just think how rich you will be. Britain was
once driven by belief that the land was the Jews.
The British Balfour Declaration declared that
Israel would become the homeland for the Jews.
There was no mention on economics back then!
Britain is Tarshish in the Bible. It says
Britain would help Jews return to their land. But
it also says that in the last days Britain would
commit fornication with all the kingdoms on
earth. Britain would grow wealthy and then
rejecting by God would turn to mammon

  • And I will bring them out from the people, and
    gather them from the countries, and will bring
    them to their own land, and feed them upon the
    mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the
    inhabited places of the country. I will feed them
    in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of

Senior minister says Israel cant rely on US
Jerusalem Post, March 20, 2014
Another senior minister in Prime Minister
Binyamin Netanyahus cabinet sharply criticized
American foreign policy Tuesday, anonymously
joining the open attack by Defence Minister Moshe
Yaalon. Speaking to journalists in the Knesset,
the minister said the Americans handling of the
crisis in Ukraine proved that Israel could no
longer rely on the United States. He said it was
clear to everyone that the US had never intended
to take military action against the Russians.
The lesson of this crisis screams to the sky,
the minister said. US foreign policy is
collapsing all over the world. America showing
weakness in Russia has implications on the
Palestinian front. Israel cannot be Ukraine. It
is ridiculous to hear about American guarantees
for Israeli security, which would at best last a
few weeks. When were in danger, they wont be
there to defend us. We must be the sole
guarantors of Israeli security.
There are those in Israel that are seriously
concerned about what is happening in Ukraine.
Exactly 20 years ago in 1994 America (and
Britain) signed an agreement with Russia to
protect Ukraines borders. This was to persuade
Ukraine to give up inuclear weapons. Now think of
Israel. Israel is being persuaded to give up land
and under a new agreement America would agree to
help keep Israels new borders secure. But if
America cannot keep Ukraines border secure and
is not willing to defend them why should Israel
accept Americas guarantee? So the situation in
Ukraine greatly weakens Americas position in the
world. It is one reason why America might push
Russia further in relation to Ukraine. It is
already taking a stronger line than Europe. When
Russia finally does descend on Israel we will see
a very similar situation to the one we see today.
America doing nothing militarily and being forced
to only question Russia

  • Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish,
    with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto
    thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou
    gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry
    away silver and gold, to take away cattle and
    goods, to take a great spoil?

(Ezekiel 3813)
Palestinians wont recognize Israel as Jewish
Free Beacon, March 26, 2014
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas
said Tuesday that Palestinians would not
recognize Israel as a Jewish state, Israel Hayom
reports. Recognition of Israel as a Jewish state
is one of Israels conditions for peace. Abbas
also said he would like to see a future
Palestinian state based on 1967 borders with
some adjustments. East Jerusalem would be the
capital, and there would be some Palestinian
control over borders and airspace. Palestinian
President Mahmoud Abbas also said on Tuesday that
the Palestinians are immediately applying for
admittance to 15 UN agencies and conventions
after Israel failed to release a fourth batch of
prisoners in March. The Palestinian Authority
(PA) leader held an emergency meeting in Ramallah
late Tuesday, where he signed a document to join
15 UN agencies and international organizations in
a televised ceremony.
On April 29th the peace process comes to an end
unless both sides can agree to extend them. John
Kerry and his team have spent hundreds of hours
on this but to no avail. In 12 months he has made
11 visits to Israel but it appears close to
collapse now. As Mr Kerry put it, "you can lead a
horse to water, but you can't make him drink."
The talks have gone on now for 20 years. As the
Economist put it this week If the nine-month
negotiations process reaches the end of April
with no significant agreement, it will be strong
evidence that negotiations are simply never going
to succeed in producing the long-sought two-state
solution for Israel and Palestine. The
Palestinians have pressed ahead this week on
recognition of a Palestinian State with 15 UN
agencies.. We dont know exactly what will happen
reference these current talks but we do know at
some point all nations will be gathered to
Jerusalem to battle. We are heading towards that
  • 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.

Donetsk leaflet Jews must register or face
Daily Telegraph, April 18, 2014
The Chief Rabbi of Donetsk spoke with controlled
outrage, holding up a piece of paper bearing an
elaborate stamp with two crossed hammers. The
last time in history that someone wrote a text
like that was in 1939 in the Nazi time, said
Pinchas Vishedski. On the second night of
Passover, three masked men arrived outside Beyt
Menahem Mendal Synagogue, carrying bundles of
these notices. The leaflet ordered all citizens
of Jewish nationality to register with the
Donetsk regional administration, now controlled
by pro-Russian revolutionaries. They were told to
bring a 50 fee to a room 514 in the main
government building, which was seized by
separatists a fortnight ago. The Jews were also
instructed to take a passport for us to make a
note about your religion and documents about
your family composition. The leaflet said they
should furnish proof of ownership of all
property and vehicles". Any Jews who failed to
comply would be deprived of their citizenship and
expelled from the borders of the Republic, said
the flyer. All their property would also be
Donetsk is a city in eastern Ukraine being
claimed by ethnic Russians. Putin all along has
said the Ukrainian nationalist movement is
riddled with neo-Nazi anti-Semites. But the truth
is that it is the pro Russians who are
anti-Semites. We know that Putin is chief
anti-Semite. We know this because Gog (Russia
ruler) makes a plan (an evil thought) to invade
Israel and take a spoil from the Jews. Is this
not the act of an anti-Semite? If the ruler of
the Russians is anti-Semite is it any wonder his
loyal henchmen are too? This conflict is rapidly
evolving.. From Crimeas self determination. Then
bringing ethnic Russians back into the Russian
fold. It is now possibly moving towards racial
purity. All this is alarming but we know what
must come to pass we are at the time of the end
  • This is what the Sovereign Lord says At that
    time evil thoughts will come to your mind, and
    you will devise a wicked scheme. You will say,
    Israel is an unprotected land filled with
    unwalled villages! I will march against her and
    destroy these people who live in such confidence!
    These are the thoughts of Gog

Israel police disperse riot at Jerusalem Holy
USA Today, April 16, 2014
Israeli police stormed a sensitive holy site in
Jerusalem on Wednesday, firing tear gas to
disperse a protest by Palestinian Muslim
worshippers, officials said. Police spokesman
Micky Rosenfeld said the crowd hurled stones and
firecrackers from atop the compound known to Jews
as the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism.
Rosenfeld said police then entered the site and
dispersed the group with tear gas and other
non-lethal means. The site is ground zero in the
territorial and religious conflict between Israel
and its Arab neighbors. Its gold-topped Dome of
the Rock enshrines the rock where Muslims believe
the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven. The
status of the site remains perhaps the most
sensitive and explosive issue in U.S.-brokered
peace talks. Tensions have already been rising
due to a breakdown in peace talks and the deadly
shooting this week of an Israeli policeman in the
West Bank.
Tension is building in Israel. The peace talks
are due to end on the 29th April. The
Palestinians claim east Jerusalem, including the
Old City, as the capital of their future state.
The status of the site remains perhaps the most
sensitive and explosive issue in U.S.-brokered
peace talks. After nearly nine months of
fruitless negotiations, U.S. mediators have been
trying to win an agreement to extend the talks
beyond the current deadline. We know that all
nations will be gathered together to Jerusalem to
battle. So how do current events in Ukraine and
the peace talks link together to bring about
Armageddon centred on Jerusalem. The Ukraine
situation could well lead to financial sanctions
against Russia that really do hurt its economy.
Europe is saying they are looking for more stable
energy suppliers. Russia under financial pressure
is forced to look elsewhere. Russias eyes turn
to Israel a spoil. Peace talks lead to
  • Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates
    we do not need to write to you, for you know very
    well that the day of the Lord will come like a
    thief in the night. While people are saying,
    Peace and safety, destruction will come on them
    suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and
    they will not escape. People saying people
    talking about peace. NOT actual peace.

Israel to miss out on Blood Moon
Israel Today, April 13, 2014
The scheduled appearance of four total lunar
eclipses on major Jewish holidays between this
Monday night (the start of Passover 2014) and
September 27, 2015 (the start of Sukkot) has the
attention of much of the Christian world. But the
eclipses are going to go almost totally unseen in
Israel. Total lunar eclipses - what are often
referred to as blood moons - are not uncommon,
13 of them having occurred since 2000. Somewhat
less common are tetrads - four consecutive total
lunar eclipses with no intervening partial
eclipses - which has occurred 62 times since the
year 0 AD. Seven times in the past 2000 years, a
tetrad has coincided perfectly with Passover and
Sukkot. One of those tetrads began just prior to
the outbreak of the Six Day War in 1967. Two
others (in 1493 and 1949) began more than a year
after the expulsion of the Jews from Spain and
the State of Israels declaration of
independence, respectively.
On Monday night there was the first of 4 blood
moons. A sequence of 4 lunar eclipses. Lunar
eclipses are fairly common. A series of 4 total
lunar eclipses is not common. A series of 4
consecutive lunar eclipses is called a Tetrad.
What is even less common is when the 4
consecutive lunar eclipses fall on Jewish feast
days. Eg Passover or Sukkot (Feast of
Tabernacles). This set of 4 is only the 8th set
since the time of Christ. The last time a Tetrad
occurred was in 1967. The first blood moon
occurred just months before the outbreak of the 6
Day War. The time before was in 1949 again
during the war that broke out after Israel was
declared a nation in 1948. The time before that
was in 1493. In 1492 the Jews were expelled from
Spain. We know God uses the sun and moon for
signs. We also know that blood moons are a sign
at the time of the end.

  • And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and
    signs in the earth beneath blood, and fire, and
    vapour of smoke The sun shall be turned into
    darkness, and the moon into blood, before that
    great and notable day of the Lord come And it
    shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on
    the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Israeli families gather for ritual Passover meal
ABC News, April 14, 2014
Families across Israel gathered after sundown
Monday for ritual meals signalling the start of
Passover, with holiday observances overshadowed
by a fatal shooting in the West Bank. The
weeklong holiday commemorates the liberation of
the ancient Israelites from centuries of slavery
in Egypt, as described in the Old Testament. In
Judaism, it is dubbed the festival of freedom.
This year, Passover comes amid uncertainty over
the future of the Israeli-Palestinian peace
talks, with the sides facing an end-of-April
deadline to reach a preliminary deal or agree to
an extension of negotiations. Ahead of the
holiday, Israel sealed off the West Bank, barring
Palestinians from entering Israel, an annual
Passover precaution against possible attacks.
It is amazing that 3500 years after the original
Passover (the time the Israelites left Egypt) the
Jews still remember the event every year. The
Passover was when all Egypts firstborn were
killed (by God) and the Hebrews who put blood
around their doors were saved. The destroying
angel passed over. The blood around the door
came from the sacrificed lamb it became known
as the Passover lamb. Through the blood of the
lamb they were saved. We read in the New
Testament that Jesus became our Passover lamb.(1
Cor 57). We may think (as Christians) that we
are not involved in the Passover feast any
longer. We couldnt be more wrong. Every Sunday
when we meet we are still in the Passover meal
that Jesus took part in with his disciples. The
bread and wine of the last supper was the
Passover meal. Every Sunday we take the bread and
wine. The wine we take is in fact the 3rd cup of
the Seder (Passover order of service) instituted
by the Jews. Jesus was following the Seder at the
last supper. The final 4th cup will not be taken
until Christ returns. To listen to a talk on this

  • Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the
    Passover must be killed. And he sent Peter and
    John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover,
    that we may eat. and they made ready the
    passover.And he said unto them, With desire I
    have desired to eat this passover with you before
    I suffer NB there are TWO cups mentioned at this
    supper. Cups 2 and 3. We are told to remember
    Christ by taking the THIRD cup. Why? Listen to
    the talk to find out

Israel suspends peace talks with Palestinians
USA Today, April 25, 2014
Israel suspended the current round of
Israeli-Palestinian talks Thursday in response to
a unity deal between the rival Palestinian groups
Hamas and Fatah. The two Palestinian rival groups
announced on Wednesday plans to unite and try to
form a unity government after a seven-year rift.
The decision by Palestinian President Mahmoud
Abbas angered Israel, which considers Hamas to be
a terrorist organization. The suspension of talks
was announced after Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu held a five-hour meeting of Israel's
Security Cabinet. "Instead of choosing peace, Abu
Mazen Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud
Abbas formed an alliance with a murderous
terrorist organization that calls for Israel's
destruction," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
said, "Abu Mazen formed an alliance with an
organization whose covenant calls for Muslims to
wage Jihad against Jews.
Incredibly as we see world war 3 on the cards
starting in Europe we see the collapse of the
peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
