Dear friends,

It is my sincere belief that the forced imposition of an international “peace deal” between the Palestinians and Israel (by outside forces) is the marker for the beginning of the last 7 years of earth’s history!!!! Otherwise known as the “70th Week of Daniel”!

This is very serious. Please, if you don’t take me seriously that’s OK. Just watch carefully with your own eyes. It would be as if the weather service put out a watch for something. It is never guaranteed, but you trust that it could be “likely”. The percentage of that likelihood is negotiable. But it is still “likely”. Remember the adage BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY. In this case the sorry will be worse than anything you’ve ever seen or imagined.

I’m not a date setter. I’m not an Antichrist namer. I’m not the type to present human interpretation as fact. Jesus simply said WATCH that the hour does not OVERTAKE YOU UNAWARE!

Remember ALL THE VIRGINS FELL ASLEEP. Only the wise had oil…..

Figure out what oil God has for you! Figure out what God wants you to hold tight to! Hold fast to the hope that is in you, Christ!

AMEN – Even so come Lord Jesus!

Love,

Corwin

Abbas urges Obama to impose Mideast peace solution

By Avi Issacharoff, Haaretz Correspondent, and News Agencies
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas urged the Obama administration on Saturday to impose a solution to the Middle East conflict that would give his people an independent state.

“Mr. President [Barack Obama] and members of the American administration, since you believe in this [an independent Palestinian state], it is your duty to take steps toward a solution and to impose this solution,” Abbas said in a speech.

Abbas made the remarks to members of his Fatah party in the West Bank city of Ramallah a day after talks there with Obama’s Middle East envoy. George Mitchell is in the region to try to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

“We’ve asked them [the Obama administration] more than once: ‘Impose a solution,'” Abbas said.

Abbas also rejected the establishment of a Palestinian state within temporary borders, an idea he said was recently proposed for restarting peace talks.
In his speech, Abbas referred to recent proposals – apparently from Israel – for a temporary state but did not elaborate. Frankly, we will not accept the state with temporary borders, because it is being offered these days, he said.

He said the Palestinians were being asked to take a state with provisional borders on 40 or 50 percent, and after that we will see.

Abbas aide Nabil Abu Rdeneh denied that Israel officially raised the idea.

However, a Palestinian academic said Israel offered Abbas such a state on more than 50 percent of the West Bank. The academic said he served as a go-between for the two sides and spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief reporters.

A Palestinian state with provisional borders is part of the U.S.-backed road map peace plan as an interim step toward full independence.

Mitchell told Israel and the Palestinians on Friday that Obama wants a comprehensive peace deal to be a reality soon and not in some vague and distant future time.

Pressing both sides to end a 16-month suspension of negotiations, Obama wants “proximity talks” on a deal to start within weeks. He has said peace is a vital strategic interest of the United States as it battles Islamic militants abroad.

Abbas’ appeal to Obama came amid widespread media reports that the U.S. president was considering floating a proposal that would set the contours of a final peace deal.

Any such move would likely be opposed by Israel, which says only negotiations can secure a final settlement to the conflict.

Report: Netanyahu agrees to new gestures toward Abbas

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has agreed to release more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails, to remove several roadblocks in the West Bank, and to ease the blockade on the Gaza Strip, as a series of gestures towards Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the London-based Arabic Language news agency Al-Hayat reported on Saturday.

During his meeting with United States special Mideast envoy Mitchell on Friday, Netanyahu also agreed to enable the Palestinian Authority to act in Area C, which contains most Israeli settlements, in the West Bank.

However, Netanyahu refused the U.S. demand to freeze construction in East Jerusalem as well as the request to return all territories classified as Area C in the West Bank to PA control, Al-Hayat reported.

The West Bank was divided in 1995 into Areas A, B and C, in accordance with an Israeli-Palestinian interim agreement. More than 70,000 Palestinians live in Area C, which according to the Oslo Accord gives Israel full civilian and military control of the area.

Palestinian sources quoted by the London-based paper said that, despite the new gestures, Abbas rejected Netanyahu’s recent offer to establish a Palestinian state within temporary borders on over 60 percent of West Bank territories, as he believed that the offer was an attempt to drag him into sterile negotiations in order to perpetuate the PA as a temporary borders.

Israeli and American officials reportedly conveyed the offer to Abbas, while President Shimon Peres and Defense Minister Ehud Barak both attempted to convince the U.S. that this was the only way to prevent a continuous Middle East conflict, Al-Hayat reported.

Dear friends,

Some think that a huge prophetic sign of the End is the complete and utter annihilation of the city of Damascus. It is prophesied in the Bible in Isaiah 17. The city is one of the oldest “continuously inhabited cities in the world”, (Wikipedia), but God says to Isaiah that there will come a time when it will “no longer be a city, but will become a heap of ruin”. It will be in a time when the nations are “raging” but “sudden terror” will come upon them because of what they have done to Israel. This is a very serious prophecy. I don’t know 100% that it is a major prophetic sign, but, if you should see Damascus hit by an Israeli nuclear weapon and completely wiped away, take heart and remember Isaiah 17!!!!


Hezbollah is Paving the Way for a New War

What awaits Lebanon and the Lebanese if the opposition wins the coming parliamentary elections? The answer came in the form of a “notification” distributed by the head of Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc to participants in this week’s national dialogue session. In it, the party warns of all-out military maneuvers that Israel will carry out at the end of next month, or a week before the elections, with the participation of all of its agencies, institutions and weapons. In addition, the Lebanese state is supposed to join up completely with the resistance in preparing for the outbreak of a “surprise” war with the Jewish state.

The “notification,” which was mostly devoted to stressing the massive Israeli maneuvers as well as their meaning, threat, background and dimensions, was clear in its conclusions: dialogue is a mere waste of time and effort; the only defense strategy that the party accepts, and strives for, is one that it lays down, according to its own thinking, in coordination with its external allies Syria and Iran, and in line with its conception of the role of the country, its institutions, its army and its citizens. In even more clearer terms, it is a consecration of Lebanon as a sole, permanent arena of confrontation with Israel. Hezbollah affirms that it is being targeted by these maneuvers and calls for a comprehensive Lebanese response at the civil, military and political level, covering hospitals, blood banks, water, telephone, electricity, the army, the security apparatuses, the media, embassies, diplomats… because it believes it necessary to confront Israel “in a way suitable to the nature of the challenge” that it represents and “be ready for the worst.”

In this sense, Hezbollah is portending an inevitable new war with Israel, one whose timing depends on factors connected to both it and the Jewish state. The Lebanese state can take no action except to prepare for this war, since anything else would have no point.


Hamas* warns Abbas not to form new government alone

After failing to reach agreement with Hamas over the formation of a Palestinian unity government, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is planning to form a new government that would not include representatives of the Islamic movement, a PA official in Ramallah said Thursday.

In response, Hamas warned that such a move would be regarded as a “fatal blow” to Egyptian efforts to end the power struggle with Fatah.

Nabil Abu Rudaineh, a spokesman for Abbas, said that Abbas was expected to announce a new government soon. He did not give a date, but another PA official said the new government would most probably be established on the eve of Abbas’s visit to Washington, where he is expected to meet for the first time with US President Barack Obama.

“President Abbas still hasn’t begun negotiations over the formation of a new government,” Abu Rudaineh said. “But he does plan to form a government with a broad coalition in the near future.”


Hamas Army Preparing for New War*

The defacto Hamas government in Gaza is re-training its army and changing its tactics in preparation for what it believes will be another war with Israel, according to Staretegypage.com. Iran and Hizbullah are advising Hamas on how to overcome its failures against Israel in the IDFs Operation Cast Lead counterterrorist campaign earlier this year.

Hamas tactics in the war backfired. It told its fighters to dress in civilian clothes as a ploy to raise civilian casualties, but the IDF surprised it by pinpointing its attacks and warning civilians to leave areas before they were bombed.

Hamas has used the ceasefire, which Israel declared on condition that international monitors would be positioned along the Egyptian border to stop smuggling, to bring in advanced weapons through new tunnels that have been built. Two Arab smugglers or workers were killed Thursday morning in a tunnel collapse underneath the border at Rafiah.

*The Hamas army now includes anti-aircraft missiles that have been provided by Iran.* Israel Air Force planes were equipped with devices to deflect anti-aircraft missiles during Operation Cast Lead, but the newly-smuggled weapons are more advanced.

During the next war, Hamas’s army will remain in uniform and will use hit-and-run tactics instead of directly engaging Israeli troops.

Hamas has dismissed 40 commanders of its forces, which it is re-building with more discipline. It also is developing improved communications systems to protect senior leaders, many of whom were targeted by Israel.

One tactic that worked to a certain extent was the deployment of its army in schools and hospitals, which also were used as weapons depots, forcing the IDF to delay attacking unless it could be proven beyond a doubt that the facilities no longer were functioning for civilian purposes.


UN Convention on the Rights of the Child stirs debate

U.S. and Somalia lone holdouts, but opponents see a threat to parents

NEW YORK — A global children’s rights treaty, ratified by every UN member except the U.S. and Somalia, has so alarmed its American critics that some are pushing to add a parental rights amendment to the Constitution as a buffer against it.

The result is a feisty new twist to a long-running saga over the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The nearly 20-year-old treaty has ardent supporters and opponents in the U.S., and both sides agree that its chances of ratification — while still uncertain — are better under the Obama administration than at any point in the past.

Opponents of the treaty contend it would enable government officials and a Geneva-based UN committee of experts to interfere with parental authority. Its supporters view the treaty as a valuable guidepost for children’s basic rights — including education, health care and protection from abuse.

“No UN treaty will ever usurp the national sovereignty of this country,” said Meg Gardinier, chair of a national coalition backing the treaty. “Ratification would boost our credibility globally.”

Gardinier says her coalition — with scores of partners including Amnesty International and the Girl Scouts of the USA — has learned to be patient, and hopes an all-out push for ratification will be mounted by the third year of Barack Obama’s presidency.

The treaty’s opponents say they will be ready to fight back, and the proposed parental rights amendment is a key part of their strategy.

Introduced this spring by Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), the amendment has 80 of his fellow Republicans as co-sponsors in the House. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) says he plans to introduce it in the Senate.

Hoekstra acknowledges that they are far short of the needed two-thirds support in both chambers of Congress to forward the amendment to the states, but he says the dynamics could change.


Hoekstra’s brief amendment opens by declaring: “The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a fundamental right.”

It says federal and state government cannot infringe on that right without clear justification, and then concludes: “No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.”


EUROPEAN NATIONS, TURKEY IGNORE UN SANCTIONS

AGAINST IRAN

Israel National News reports: “Five European nations, as well as Turkey, have ignored the economic sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council in the past year, according to state-run Iranian media.

The head of the Iranian Trade Promotion Agency, Mehdi Ghazanfari, told the IRNA news agency that Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France and the United Kingdom have carried out some $15.4 billion in bilateral trade with Iran over the past year.

Ghazanfari said the European states were ‘keen on continuing bilateral economic cooperation with Iran,’ despite the U.N. sanctions.

Turkey has gone even farther, according to Bahman Hosseinpour, the Islamic Republic’s Ambassador to Ankara.

Hosseinpour told participants at a business seminar focusing on Iran-Turkey ties that trade volume between the two countries has reached a record $12 billion this year alone, according to the Fars news agency.

A delegation of 170 Iranian exporters and other business owners traveled to Ankara this week for talks aimed at expanding commercial ties between the two nations…”


In the next 3 stories, I want you to see that the connection between “peace” in the Middle East and the world’s obsession has more to do with oil and money than human rights. Continue to watch the “war” among the world’s powers for political, financial, and military influence in the middle east. Russia & EU relations will continue to conflict  based on their international ENERGY interests in Georgia, Ukraine, Turkey, Iran, and all of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean. It will be one of the main reasons that the Antichrist will have such overwhelming power over the world financially. He will control “peace” in the Middle East and will hold radical Islam in his right hand. He will overcome them by Satanic spiritual and military means and control the world’s OIL!! Keep watching the fight punch by punch and play by play and you will not be caught UNAWARE! NAT

Russia's President Medvedev seals the deal with S Ossetia's leader 30 April 2009

The treaty allows Russia to extend its period of border control

Russia has signed a five-year deal taking formal control of its de facto borders with two breakaway regions of Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

Nato said Russia was in “clear contravention” of the ceasefire ending last year’s conflict with Georgia.

The deal comes ahead of planned Nato exercises in Georgia next week, which Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev has described as “overt provocation”.

Russia and Nato only resumed formal contacts on Wednesday.

The two rivals have been gradually rebuilding ties after breaking off contacts over the war.

But relations remain difficult. Nato expelled two Russian diplomats on Thursday over a spy scandal, infuriating Russia…

U.N.’s Top Climate Change Official: A New Willingness to

Tackle Emissions

Major developing countries like China are doing far more to address climate change than most Americans realize, the top climate change official at the United Nations said yesterday after a meeting in Washington of ministers from the world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitters.

The two-day meeting, requested by President Obama, brought together officials from 16 of the world’s major economic powers—the United States, the European Union, China, and India, among others—for a special, intimate round of negotiations as they work toward signing a new climate change treaty with the rest of the world by the end of the year.

No Rapture – No Cry

October 11, 2008

So what if there is no pre-tribulation secret rapture of Christ’s beloved Bride???

 

What if the Bible’s chronology is simply this:

 

Israel miraculously returns after 2000 years

Antichrist rises “behind the scenes”

Antichrist makes the 7-year “covenant of death” with Israel

Israel rebuilds temple during a time of false peace

Antichrist comes against God’s Holy people

Antichrist sets up the Abomination of Desolation

Antichrist demands the world’s worship (with help of false prophet)

Antichrist makes WAR against the Saints

Antichrist surrounds Jerusalem with his armies (on all the mountains of Israel)

Jesus sends fire from heaven to devour these armies

THE GREAT SIGNS OF THE DAY OF THE LORD! (Trumpet, Sun, Moon, Stars, Sky)

Jesus COMES BACK to defend Israel and redeem his Beloved Bride!

We meet Him in the AIR!!!!!

 

So if you find yourself still here when the Antichrist is demanding the world’s worship and instating the Mark of Beast…DON’T CRY

Simply know that Tim Lahaye and others were a little off on their chronology.

Take heart HAVE TREMENDOUS HOPE!!! The Day of Our Lord’s Appearing is in sight EVEN AT THE DOOR!!!!!

 

Pre-Wrath Rapture Study Here

Ezekiel

June 22, 2008

Many prophetic scholars agree that the massive military conflict of Ezekiel 38 & 39 has not yet occurred in Israel’s history. I won’t go into all the theological reasons for this belief, but I wholeheartedly agree. There are several major statements in the text that indicate a definite “End Times” context and that preclude any explanation prior to 1948.

I believe EVERY person interested in prophecy should read Ezekiel 37-40 with MUCH interest. The book foretells of

1) The miraculous WORLD WIDE restoration of Israel

2) A terrible military attack by “Gog” “Magog” “the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal” “Persia” “Ethiopia” “Put” “Beth-Togarmah” and many other peoples

3) A MIRACULOUS salvation from this terrible military attack by an ACT of God that can only be viewed as CATASTROPHIC

4) And finally a NEW glorious temple with the RIVER of life flowing out of it!

There is major hope in the book of Ezekiel for those who believe that God is the salvation of the world and of Israel. We should read it with open eyes and hearts and discern the Truth that God is sharing with us.

Who are these nations that will attack a “peaceful” Israel? When will this occur? What will this attack look like? What will this Act of God look like that will astound the nations?

Keep watch! Be vigilant! I believe this will happen VERY soon!

Day of Atonement

September 23, 2007

Well today is the Day of Atonement. Our sins have already been atoned FOREVER, FOR GOOD, COMPLETELY. But Israel (faithful Israel) still thinks that God needs sacrificial repentance through The Law. I keep thinking about this, and it really seems in character with God’s mercy and grace. Their hearts are temporarily “darkened” until the “fullness of the gentiles comes in”. Why?

Here we have a people who have a graphic, personal, historical relationship with the God of the Universe. He says that He is going to send Someone to restore Israel and bring in an eternal reign of righteousness and peace. He sends a baby whose wrist bones get nailed to pieces of wood. And then 2000 years go by and after the Holocaust and Auchwitze they are still believing in the God of the Universe to bring in the restoration of Israel and the eternal reign of Heaven on earth. Can you imagine the glee and faith and glory when they get to “look on Him whom they have pierced” and He instead of saying, “You faithless and perverse generation” He says, “Come up to me to live in Glory Land forever!” WOW!!!!!! Talk about a faithful God. And talk about faithful people. The remnant of Israel, without revelation, because God personally has a blind fold put on their eyes, are going to turn away from The Law once and for all and embrace the Lamb Slain from the foundation of the world. WHEW!!!!!!

Well speaking of Israel, whether faithful or not, they are about to go to war. And it will seem that EVERY NATION is coming up against then and swarming them. We need to seriously take notice, take heart, take this seriously. We are the spiritual children of Israel. We are bastard children. Grafted in by nothing but pure mercy and grace and favor. We are adopted into this Family of the Creator ONLY by their sacrifice and faith and patience and slavery and laws and Book. By David’s Son! We don’t need to forget about them because they are forgotten and silly and big nosed and hard-headed like some people view them. We need to see them as our true and rightful co-heirs. Because God chose them and they chose to remain faithful to Him no matter what. 

There will be every nation, tribe, and tongue in Heaven, but the Jews are God’s first born among men, because JESUS is His Son. 

Let’s please pray for them and for the grafted in gentile church all over. We are breaking up and breaking apart. We are separated by hurts and wounds, frustrations, misunderstandings, feuds, bad blood, bad water under the bridge. But we need to set all that aside and hold hands because all Hell is about to break loose on this earth.

Please share this with others in your own way.
