Israel Used Sudan Bombing As ‘Dry Run’ For Attack On Iran

An Israel airstrike was behind the explosion last Wednesday at a Sudanese weapons factory, and that attack was a “dry run for a forthcoming attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities,” according to a weekend report in the Sunday Times of London, which also implied the seeds of the attack were planted in the 2010 alleged Mossad assassination of Hamas operative Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai.

Citing anonymous Israeli and western defense sources, the British newspaper alleged that an IAF force consisting of eight fighters, two helicopters and a refueling plane were used in the attack on the weapons factory near Khartoum. The force flew down the Red Sea, avoiding Egyptian air defense, and used electronic countermeasures to prevent detection while over Sudanese territory.

Four fighters made the bombing run, the other four were used for air cover, and the helicopters, which carried 10 commandos each, were in reserve in case a rescue operation was needed to recover a downed pilot.

“This was a show of force, but it was only a fraction of our capability — and of what the Iranians can expect in the countdown to the spring,” an Israeli defense source was quoted as telling the Sunday Times.

Israeli officials have neither confirmed nor denied striking the site. Instead, they accused Sudan of playing a role in an Iranian-backed network of arms shipments to Hamas and Hezbollah. Israel believes Sudan is a key transit point in the circuitous route that weapons take to the Islamic militant groups in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon.

The Sudanese government last Wednesday immediately pointed the finger at Israel for the fire at the Yarmouk Complex that killed two people, and said that four Israeli aircraft bombed the factory.

On Saturday, furthermore, Khartoum claimed it had proof of Israeli involvement. Sudan says 60 percent of the factory was completely destroyed in the attack, and the rest badly damaged.

Sudanese officials said the government has the right to respond to what the information minister said was a “flagrant attack” by Israel on Sudan’s sovereignty, and the right to strengthen its military capabilities.

An American monitoring group said on Saturday that satellite images of the aftermath of the Wednesday explosion suggested the site was hit by an airstrike. The images released by the Satellite Sentinel Project to the Associated Press showed six 52-foot (16-meter) wide craters at the compound.

Military experts consulted by the project found the craters to be “consistent with large impact craters created by air-delivered munitions,” Satellite Sentinel Project spokesman Jonathan Hutson said.

The target may have been around 40 shipping containers seen at the site in earlier images, the group said. It said the craters center on the area where the containers had been stacked.

Sudan was a major hub for al-Qaeda militants and remains a transit for weapon smugglers and African migrant traffickers. Israeli officials believe arms that originate in the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas go through Sudan before crossing Egypt’s lawless Sinai desert and into Gaza through underground tunnels.

According to the Sunday Times, in 2010 when Mossad agents assassinated Hamas arms procurer al-Mabhouh in Dubai, they found a copy of a 2008 defense agreement between Iran and Sudan.

The agreement allowed Iran to build weapons in Sudan under Iranian supervision. The Times wrote that the “Israelis discovered later that a large contingent of Iranian technicians had been sent to the Yarmouk factory… the Iranians were building advanced Shahab ballistic missiles and rockets at a plant in the factory compound.”

These missiles were seen as “a direct threat,” according to an Israeli security expert quoted by the Times.

Opened in 1996, the Yarmouk factory is one of two known state-owned weapons manufacturing plants in the Sudanese capital. Sudan prided itself on having a way to produce its own ammunition and weapons despite United Nations and US sanctions.

The satellite images indicate that the Yarmouk facility includes an oil storage facility, a military depot and an ammunition plant.

The monitoring group said the images indicate that the blast “destroyed two buildings and heavily damaged at least 21 others,” adding that there was no indication of fire damage at the fuel depot inside the military complex.

The group said it could not be certain the containers, seen in images taken Oct. 12, were still there when explosion took place. But the effects of the blast suggested a “highly volatile cargo” was at the epicenter of the explosion.

“If the explosions resulted from a rocket or missile attack against material stored in the shipping containers, then it was an effective surgical strike that totally destroyed any container” that was at the location, the project said.

A witness told the project that three planes were seen “flying fast around southern Khartoum, to the northwest and northeast,” while a fourth larger plane flew toward the northeast at a higher altitude.

Yarmouk is located in a densely populated residential area of the city approximately 11 kilometers (seven miles) southwest of the Khartoum International Airport.

Wednesday’s blast sent exploding ammunition flying into homes in the neighborhood adjacent to the factory, causing panic among residents. Sudanese officials said some people suffered from smoke inhalation.

A man who lives near the factory said that, from inside their house, he and his brother heard a loud roar — what they believed was a plane — just before the boom of the explosion sounded from the factory.

Jerusalem has been tight-lipped since Khartoum. Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday had no comment about the incident. Defense Minister Ehud Barak told Channel 2 there was “nothing to say” about the subject.

The Examiner’s source reiterated the charge made in the Israeli press and by the Sunday Times that Sudanese-made arms funded by Iran make their way to Hamas and Hezbollah armories. The article claimed that Iran pays Bedouin to smuggle Sudanese arms from the Red Sea coast across Sinai to the Gaza Strip.

According to the Examiner’s Israeli source, “hundreds of rockets (mostly with ranges of 20-40 kilometers), about 1,000 mortar shells, dozens of individual anti-tank missiles, and tons of explosives and explosives-making materials have been smuggled” via Sinai to the Gaza Strip.

The Last Days of the Last Age Before Jesus Christ Returns Part I

The Last Age Before Jesus Returns
Many people are wondering whether we are living in the last days of the last age before Jesus Christ returns to earth.  With the economic systems in America and Europe ready to collapse due to their great monetary indebtedness, an incipient war brewing in the Middle East, and with many nations armed to their teeth with nuclear warheads, many are wondering whether we are living in the endtimes.  Even now, there is a monster storm named HURRICANE SANDY moving north along the northeast corridor off the Atlantic Seaboard where over 50 million people are living.  This hurricane is appropriately dubbed FRANKENSTORM, in deference to the coming Halloween holiday- a day of celebration of Satan and his demonic forces- ghosts and goblins, which the world is unwittingly caught up in!  Could this monster apocalyptic storm FRANKENSTORM be a sign of God’s great displeasure with America?  Is God trying to get our attention or to tell us something?
But then there are also many scoffers and unbelievers who think that the earth will continue as it is, and are very skeptical that the end and the return of Jesus Christ to earth are very near.  Nearly 2000 years ago, the apostle Peter wrote
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation’ 2Pe2:3,4.
Since the first man Adam partook of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil Ge3:12, man has degenerated into a very evil being, filled with lusts, greed, corruption, and violenceMan is literally destroying himself and the earth, and has proven himself incapable of governing himselfWe live in a very troubled world, and man’s capacity for wickedness knows no bounds.  The Bible states God will ‘..  destroy them which destroy the earth’ Re11:18.  We will soon see what it is like when mankind falls into the hands of an angry GodThe wrath of God will soon be poured upon all mankind from the ‘cup of his indignation’ Re14:10.  God will judge the earth with His fury.  Heb10:31 states ‘It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God’, and Heb12:29, ‘For our God is a consuming fire.  After God’s judgment, Jesus Christ will then return and establish His millennial kingdom on earth asKING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDSRe19:16.
About 2000 years ago, Jesus disciples asked him what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?’ Mt24:3.  This very provocative question is more appropriate today, and has a greater and more profound meaning than ever before.  His disciples fully expected Jesus to leave them, but also to return as he had told them that he would Jn14:2,3.  They did not know where He was going, how he was going to get there, and when He would return.  But they sensed that the world was going to end soon, perhaps in their lifetime.  The disciples’ world then was very small, perhaps no more than 2000 miles in any direction. The world today is in great economic upheaval with great strife among the nations, and the earth is experiencing great apocalyptic natural disasters- weather, earthquakes and tsunamis!
The Bible Details the Endtimes- Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21 and the Book of Revelation
The Bible details the last days before Jesus’ return in these chapters and book.  In Mt24:4-39, as signs of the endtimes, Jesus spoke of widespread deception, wars, famines and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places.  The endtimes are characterized by Jesus’ warnings of false Christs and false prophets, and of great spiritual deception Mt24:4,11,24.  Jesus said there will be a great falling way due to immorality v12.  He said ‘this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations and then shall the end comev14.  With air travel, radio, satellite TV coverage, and now the Internet, this prophecy of the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world today has been greatly facilitated.  Lk21:25,26 state ‘there will be ‘distress of nations, with perplexity..  Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory’.  The Temple in Jerusalem will soon be rebuilt, and animal sacrifice restored.  Then the Antichrist will cause the abomination of desolation, spoken by Daniel the prophet v15.  Those in Judaea are told to flee into the mountains v16.  Jesus said GREAT TRIBULATION such as the world has never experienced, shall then occur v21Jesus will then return in that generation when all these things are fulfilled v34The time of the end is sooner than most people think, and many will not be ready when Jesus returns!
Luke 21 adds more details regarding the time of the end.  Jesus said the Jews shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled v24.  This happened at the destruction of Jerusalem by Roman General Favius Titus in 70 AD.  When the Jews returned to Israel in 1948, the times of the Gentiles were fulfilled.  Jesus said there will be signs in the heavens and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts will fail them for fear and looking after those things which are coming on the earth.  The powers of heaven shall be shaken.  Economic collapse will surely occur!   Revelation also reveals of things which shall be hereafter during the endtimes Re1:19: the opening of the 7 seals, 7 trumpets, 7 vials of judgments; the fate of the endtime false church system MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS and ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH Re17:5; the collapse of the world economic system Re18.  There will be a World War where over 1/4 to 1/3 of the world will be killed or destroyed Re6:8,8:8-11; and the rise of the Antichrist, the man of sin 2Th2:3,4,8-12, Re13:1 and his False Prophet v11.  Then will be the time of the Great Tribulation that will last for 42 months v5, before the triumphant return of Jesus Christ to earth Jude14,15, Re19:11-16.
The apostle Paul also warns us that in the last days perilous times shall come.  ‘For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof..’ 2Ti3:1-5.  Also, increasing homosexuality; people filled with ‘all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents..’ Ro1:26-31.  ‘They which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God’ Ga5:19-21.
The Return of Israel as a Nation- One of the Most Significant Endtime Signs
When Israel became a nation again on May 14, 1948, she allowed for the many prophecies written by the prophets by Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Zechariah, etc., to be fulfilled. After 2600 years of scattering (diaspora), because of her great suffering and the slaughter of 6 million of Jews in the Holocaust of WWII, the United Nations declared Israel a nation again and gave the Jews a homeland in the land of Palestine, a fulfillment of what God told Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and the prophets.  Now Satan and the world’s hatred for Israel will also then bring forth the final war of Armageddon!
In Part II, we will look at some of the significant events that have occurred since the beginning of World War II, over the past 70 years, that signified that we are living in the endtimes, and what is yet to be fulfilled in this Last Age Before Jesus Returns!  We will look at the mess that the world is in and why Jesus will come again in the Rapture, to deliver us from the wrath to come 1Th1:10!
To be continued soon… Part II to follow.




What will cause the great falling away?

MT 24:10At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.”

I bet you have some great friends, I know I do. I believe they would drop everything to be there for me just as I would for them. Local churches are full of groups that consider themselves close. Yet Jesus says in the end times that MANY of these “friends” will betray and hate each other.
I bet you know some sweet believers, I know I do. I believe they would take a bullet rather than deny their faith. Local churches are full of believers that would not for a moment think that they were vulnerable to falling away. Yet, Jesus says that MANY of these believers will turn away from the faith.
What could cause people who love each other to betray and hate each other? What could cause people who are excited about being believers to turn away from the faith? We could contemplate the circumstances that might bring that about. What about worldwide famine, worldwide persecution, or both with people being rewarded with food to turn in the remaining christians? Would that be enough to cause the great falling away? Well, those things certainly wouldn’t help the situation.  But no, the answer is Shallow Roots are the culprit.
Mt 13: 20The one who received the seed that fell on rocky places is the man who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away.
The man with shallow roots was unprepared for trouble and persecution. He may have been following Jesus for the bread and fish he was handing out or because he was famous. But when times got hard, he either determined that this is not what he had signed up for, or he simply chose to give up rather than continue suffering.   I suspect that you have seen an individual fall away. I know I have. Perhaps you have felt the temptation yourself in the midst of suffering circumstances. Why do some fall away but others do not?
I recall a conversation I had with my pastor, standing in a hospital corridor while my wife lay a few doors down with what had just been termed inoperable cancer. My pastor asked me how I was coping and I opined that my evangelical foundation was more useful to me in these times of trouble than my charismatic experience. You see, over the previous 7 years MANY people of faith with good intent had stood around us like cheerleaders echoing phrases that lacked root. “Everything is going to be fine!” , “Just have faith.” , “I have a good feeling about..”, “God has such good plans for you, there is no way he would cut her life short..”
Don’t get me wrong, we both believed in healing, and I still believe that God heals people today. I have participated in effective healing prayer many times.  But she died. After 7 years of anointing with oil, standing in faith, and enlisting a great crowd of believers and churches in other states and countries to pray and believe with us, she died.  But I did not fall away. Many people, especially non-believers don’t understand why I didn’t abandon the faith when in their eyes God abandoned me.
But I didn’t fall away because I didn’t come to rely on paperback theology, false assumptions, or empty rhetoric. God was faithful to me in so many ways. He spoke to me several times during her sickness. He told me that even Lazarus died again after Jesus had raised him up. He reminded me of eternity and that this life isn’t about us, its about His Kingdom and His Glory. He allowed me to be there when she went to be with Jesus and I saw the reflection of heaven in her face as she went.
1The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 1 tim 4:1
My “friends”, I believe we are living in the end times. I believe that times will soon be upon us where those who have shallow roots will be sorely tempted to turn away from their faith in order to do what they must to survive including turning in their other “friends” for reward and recognition.
Are you satisfied with shallow responses to the quickly deteriorating circumstances all around you?

  • It could never happen here..(Hurricane Katrina)
  • We are a modern economy with a strong currency (Argentina)
  • He is an elected leader bound by a constitution (Hitler)
  • The things we worry about most rarely happen (Noah/Joseph/EndTimes)
  • It will probably be fifty years or more until we see a one world government (No man knows the day)
The end times will happen. World trade will cease. Famine will be widespread.  A one world government will arise and will persecute and kill Christians. MANY believers will abandon their faith. MANY believers will turn on and betray one another.  The love of MOST will grow cold in the midst of tough choices and widespread extreme suffering.
Dig some roots, trade in shallow and empty rhetoric for an honest risk assessment, focus on timeless principles and timely actions.  You are going to need a durable faith for the times ahead so you can refuse to participate in the great falling away, so you can continue to provide and protect for your family, so you can have something to share with those in need, so you can stand firm to the end.

The Silent War: Israel Blows Up Iranian Weapons Factory In Sudan


The Yarmouk Complex of military plants near Khartoum, whicht was bombed five minutes after midnight Wednesday, Oct. 24, by four fighter-bombers, recently went into manufacturing Iranian ballistic surface-to-surface Shehab missiles under license from Tehran, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources disclose.

Western intelligence sources have not revealed what types of Shehab were being turned out in Sudan but they believe the Yarmouk’s output was intended to serve as Tehran’s strategic reserve stock in case Iran’s ballistic arsenal was hit by Israeli bombers.

The Israeli Air Force has a long record of pre-emptive attacks for destroying an enemy’s long-range missiles in the early stages of a conflict. In June 2006, for instance, the IAF destroyed 90 percent of Hizballah’s long-range missiles in the first hours of the Lebanon war.

Videos of the explosions caused in the air raid over Sudan showed large quantities of phosphorus flares in the sky suggesting that a large stockpile was demolished along with the manufacturing equipment.

Western sources did not divulge information about the comings and goings of Iranian missile specialists or whether the Bashir government had given Tehran permission to stage attacks from Sudan against Middle East targets, in return for the allotment of a number of missiles to the Sudanese army.

All they would say is that the complex's structures had been completely leveled by the aerial bombardment and subsequent fire.

Sudan accused Israel of the attack and stated it reserved the right to respond at a time and circumstances of its choosing. Israeli officials declined to comment in answer to questions.

If Indeed Israel was responsible for the bombing raid, it is possible to postulate the following objectives:

1. Its air force flew 1,800-1,900 kilometers to reach the Sudanese arms factory, a distance longer than the 1,600 kilometers to the Iranian underground enrichment site of Fordo. This operation may have been intended to show Tehran that distance presents no obstacles to an Israeli strike on its nuclear program.

2. The IAF has an efficient in-flight refueling capability.

3. The raid would have degraded Iran’s ability to retaliate for a potential Israel or US attack.

If it was conducted by Israel, it would add a third item to the list of backdoor assaults in which Iran and Israel appear to be engaged in the past three months.

On August 17, the power lines to Fordo were sabotaged, interrupting the work of enrichment taking place there and causing some of the advanced centrifuges to catch fire.

On Oct. 6, an Iranian stealth drone was launched from Lebanon into Israeli air space and photographed its most sensitive military sites as well as the Dimona nuclear reactor before Israel brought it down.


Will Palm Scans Replace ATM Cards?


The next time someone asks to check your identification, they may mean a palm scan not a passport.

Biometrics authentication, a measure once reserved for criminals, is making its way into the mainstream, as banks and credit-card issuers embrace a technology considered far superior to personal identification numbers and passwords.

“Biometrics has a real opportunity to take off,” says Alphonse Pascual, a security, risk and fraud analyst for Javelin Strategy & Research.
“When they are done well, they are a great solution to secure identification. Unfortunately, there are still limitations to it.”

Among the drawbacks are the accuracy and privacy issues posed by the technology, which could take years to resolve before laws are put in place.

Biometric scanners use your personal characteristics or traits to identify you. Fingerprint and palm scans are already widely used in countries like Japan and Poland, while other systems rely on your voice and the cadence of your speech to confirm your identity.

Up until the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, biometrics technology languished as a security measure, despite high accuracy rates.

Some companies and some government arms — the FBI and police, for example — used fingerprints and even iris scans as identification sources, but not to the degree portrayed in many movies and books.

Today, however, a growing number of financial institutions, businesses and medical facilities are investigating — and investing in — biometric identifiers.

Disney World, for example, has been using biometrics for the better part of a decade. At its entrances, guests must have their fingers scanned so Disney knows that the same person is using the same ticket every day.

The government is pushing even further ahead with the technology, integrating biometrics at the FBI, Homeland Security and the Defense Department.

The FBI, which calls itself the “global leader in biometrics,” is completing a $1 billion state-of-the-art system known as Next Generation Identification, which will significantly broaden and improve the largest person-centric biometric database in the world.

And consumers are, albeit slowly, getting comfortable with it.

A report Javelin released this week about banking authentication efforts claimed that “business customers crave biometrics.”

That’s mostly banking customers, seven in 10 of whom told Javelin researchers that they were interested in using biometrics, with 35% opting to use their fingerprints.

Some 44% of all consumers are drawn to financial institutions that consider taking such robust measures to ensure people are who they say they are.

The more technology-driven a person is, the more likely he or she is to use banks and card issuers that embrace biometrics, the research found: 48% of online banking customers favored such measures, while 54% of users of mobile banking do, according to Javelin.

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report

19 Oct, Barack Obama discreetly clued Binyamin Netanyahu in this week on the latest US intelligence confirming Iran will have enough enriched uranium for 4-6 bombs by March 2013, DEBKAfile reports. It was the first time Obama admitted knowing that sanctions and diplomatic pressure were not working. Also revealed was that Iran had doubled the enrichment centrifuges at Natanz to 6,000, and that Iran needs no more than 2-3 weeks to upgrade enriched uranium from 20% to weapons grade. Obama still objects to an Israeli pre-emptive strike.

Syria, Iran, Hizballah don’t play war games, they attack
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis
20 Oct. The car bomb which murdered anti-Syrian Lebanese security chief Brig. Gen. Wissam al-Hasan and seven others Friday, Oct. 19, in East Beirut finally also dissipated hopes in the West and Israel of the Syrian civil war sundering the Tehran-Damascus-Hizballah axis. It also marked the brutal spillover of the Syrian bloodbath into a second Arab capital. Gen. al-Hasan paid the price for uncovering a Syrian plot to destabilize Lebanon and arresting the pro-Syrian politician and ex-information minister Michel Samaha for complicity in the plot. He also led that investigation that implicated Damascus in the 2005 bombing that killed former Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri.
This week, US President Barack Obama reined in Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and his chief of staff Gen. Necdet Ozel from expanding Turkish cross-border clashes with Syria.

October 21, 2012 Briefs:

The US-Israeli three-week war game also starting Sunday simulates defending Israel under Iranian, Syrian and/or Hizballah missile attack. It deploys 1,000 American and Israeli soldiers each, using Patriot, Arrow and Iron Dome anti-missile batteries.

White House denies US, Iran to hold one-on-one talks
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis
20 Oct. National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor Sunday denied the New York Times report that the US and Iran had agreed to hold one-on-one talks on Tehran’s nuclear program before the US election. DEBKAfile:  The quick denial was necessary because Obama was shown not only to have misled Israel but also his five fellow world powers which had been holding talks with Iran.
On April 16, 2012, DEBKAfile disclosed that Washington and Tehran were conducting back-channel talks in Paris and Vienna. In those talks he accepted Iran’s right to enrich uranium, erased all Israel’s red lines and only demands 24/7 inspections, which Tehran refused. The talks therefore produced no breakthrough.
Yet Israel keeps on backtracking on its red lines: When Iran moved its enrichment plant into an immune zone earlier this month, one red line disappeared. And Israel is no longer openly challenges Washington’s assurance that a decision by Khamenei to go forward and start building a weapon would reach US intelligence at the precise moment it is made.

Both US presidential contenders, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney pledged to stand with Israel if attacked in their foreign policy debate in Boca Raton, Florida Monday, Oct. 22.  Yet, in reply to a question, neither would formally declare that an attack on Israel would be tantamount to an attack on America, especially in relation to a nuclear Iran. Romney and Obama agreed that a military option must be a last resort, although Romney, unlike Obama, said even a “nuclear-capable Iran” was unacceptable.

High alert for terror strikes against Israel and US, Egyptian Sinai targets
DEBKAfile Special Report
23 Oct. Israeli, US, Egyptian and Jordanian counterterrorism agencies are on elevated alert ahead of the Eid al Adha festival starting Oct. 25, DEBKAfile: Salafi and al Qaeda cells in Egyptian Sinai are reported to be poised to unleash coordinated terrorist attacks on US and Egyptian targets in Sinai and in Israel to avenge Israel’s targeted killing of two senior commanders of the Salafi-al Qaeda Sinai-Gaza network. Perpetrators of the Benghazi murders of 4 US diplomats are among the jihadi reinforcements coming in from Libya.
The US special forces unit posted last month on Jordan’s Syrian border was hurriedly transferred to the Red Sea port of Aqaba with a fleet of helicopters, in case MFO bases in Sinai come under attack.

The bombed Sudanese factory made Shehabs
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report
24 Oct. The Yarmouk Complex near Khartoum, which was bombed Wednesday, Oct.  24, by four fighter-bombers, recently began manufacturing Iranian ballistic surface-to-surface Shehab missiles, DEBKAfile discloses. Western intelligence believes they were to be stocked as Tehran’s strategic reserve stock in case its own ballistic arsenal was hit by Israeli bombers. Sudan accused Israel of the bombing. If the Israeli air force was responsible it would have demonstrated the ability to cover 1,800-1,900 kilometers to reach the Sudanese arms factory, which is farther than the 1,600 kilometers to the Iranian underground enrichment site of Fordo, while refueling in flight.

Israel halts war games to deploy troops, missile interceptors in escalating Gaza sector
DEBKAfile Special Report
24 Oct. Defense minister Ehud Barak and Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz decided Wednesday, Oct. 24, that the heavy Palestinian missile assault from the Gaza Strip, which escalated to 80 rockets on Israeli civilian locations, must be stopped. The bulk of the personnel taking part in the joint Israeli-US war game Austere Challenge 12 and the Turning Point 6 home front exercise were pulled out, together with anti-missile interceptors and other resources, and redeployed across from the Gaza Strip.
DEBKAfile’s military sources report that the two exercises were effectively halted, after a wide range of towns and villages within range of the Gaza Strip, including Ashkelon, took a heavy beating from round after round of rockets, including Grads. Two Thais working in the fields of the Eshkol district were flown to hospital in critical condition. Several properties were seriously damaged and local schools and work places remained closed. Iron Dome intercepted 7 Grads out of 13 aimed at Ashkelon.

Posted: October 25, 2012 in Uncategorized
Good news on Israel’s southern border today: In a strange but welcome twist, the government of Egypt stepped in last night and actually persuaded Hamas and other pro-Iran terror groups to cease their fire of rockets and mortars against Israel. Could the truce be broken? Yes. Could Hamas and the other terror groups change their mind? Yes. But for now, things are mostly quiet again. This is positive but surprising on several levels.
  • First, the new Egyptian government is run by President Mohamed Morsi, a Muslim Brotherhood leader closely allied with Hamas (which itself is a branch of the Egyptian Brotherhood).
  • Second, Morsi has called for jihad against Islam’s enemies, including Israel.
  • Third, on October 19th, Morsi was seen on Egyptian television saying “amen” at a sermon by a radical Egyptian cleric who prayed for Allah to drive the Jews out of Israel. ”Oh Allah, deal with the Jews and their supporters,” the cleric prayed. “Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder. Oh Allah, demonstrate your might and greatness upon them. Show us your ominipotence, oh Lord.”
Despite such views, Morsi and his team stepped in to pressure Hamas. Why did they do it? Humanly speaking, it’s not yet clear. The main reason, I believe, is because Christians here in the U.S. and all over the world began praying to the God of Israel to stop the rockets, and the One True God — the God of the Bible — heard and answered those prayers. Thanks so much to all of you who were praying. Please don’t let up. Let’s also be praying for Morsi and the Egyptian government. They are Radicals, but God has constrained them. There’s something going on behind the scenes, too. A few days ago, Morsi actually sent a warm, friendly letter to Israeli President Shimon Peres calling Peres  a “great and good friend.” An Egyptian official then confirmed that the letter is authentic. It’s not clear why Morsi is reaching out to Peres, beyond the power of prayer. But let’s pray for Christ to change Morsi’s heart — to save him, and transform him, and his government, too. Is anything too hard for God?

Bottom line: Yes, the new Egyptian governnment is a Radical Muslim regime and a threat to the State of Israel. However, our God is greater. Let’s not be cynical. Let’s not throw up our hands in despair. Jesus Christ is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He is sovereign over all things, all people, all leaders. So let’s keep praying for peace, even as we continue to prepare for the possibility of war. Let’s also be praying for the Christians inside Egypt to be brave and bold and courageous and to preach the Gospel and to teach the Word of God without hesitation. And let’s pray for many Egyptian Muslims to turn to faith in Jesus Christ.

Context: “A deadly flare-up in fighting between Israel and Gaza’s terrorist Hamas group subsided on Thursday after Egypt helped to restore calm ahead of a major Muslim holiday,” reports Israel Hayom. “‘The cease-fire was brought about because Hamas suffered serious blows and asked for a cease-fire,’ Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe (Bogie) Ya’alon told Israel Radio on Thursday. Weeks of simmering violence had intensified on Tuesday night, when rocket fire from Gaza drew Israeli airstrikes that killed two Palestinian terrorists. On Wednesday, terrorists in Gaza fired some 80 rockets and mortars at southern Israel, and Israeli aircraft struck Gaza four times. In all, four Palestinians, including three terrorists, were killed in the fighting and two foreign workers in Israel were critically wounded….Both sides confirmed Egyptian involvement in ending the fighting. Israeli defense official Amos Gilad told Army Radio on Thursday that Egyptian security forces had ‘a very impressive ability’ to convey to the terrorists that it was in their ‘supreme interest not to attack.’”

Me, on the Sid Roth Show
Recently, Sid Roth interviewed me on his show It’s Supernatural. The show is running this week on TV stations.
If you would like to watch the interview, go to John McTernan Interview.
Sid interviewed me about the updated information from my book As America Has Done to Israel.
The update was only about 25 pages but it was power packed with vital information and a key picture of President Roosevelt. I updated chapters five, nine and added an Epilogue.
The information is so powerful, that even if you have read the book, I suggest that you get the update. The updated information is simply astonishing.
Sid also produced a four-hour teaching of mine. It is in three DVDs and called America’s Fatal Mistake. I do suggest that you obtain this DVD series, as I go into teaching about what is in the book. You get to see the documentation that I used in my book. I was very satisfied with the teaching.
It is my heart’s desire that my book and teachings would win many to the Lord Jesus and cause God’s people to live with the Blessed Hope. There is nothing else to live for in the world but the Blessed Hope.
I do not have the update of my book! My publisher had a large printing and sent it right to Sid for his show. I have to wait and was told the books should come next week. I suggest that if you want the book or DVD right now, order it from Sid’s ministry.
When I have the updated book and DVD teaching series, I will let you know.

Navy’s Laser Arsenal Is Just Two Years Away


Never mind looming defense cuts or residual technical challenges. The Navy’s chief futurist is pushing up the anticipated date for when sailors can expect to use laser weapons on the decks of their ships, and raising expectations for robotic submarines.

“On directed energy” — the term for the Navy’s laser cannons, “I’d say two years,” Rear Adm. Matthew Klunder, the chief of the Office of Naval Research, told Danger Room in a Monday interview. The previous estimate, which came from Klunder’s laser technicians earlier this year, was that it will take four years at the earliest for a laser gun to come aboard.

“We’re well past physics,” Klunder said, echoing a mantra for the Office of Naval Research’s laser specialists. Now, the questions surrounding a weapon once thought to be purely science fiction sound almost pedestrian. “We’re just going through the integration efforts,” Klunder continued. “Hopefully, that tells you we’re well mature, and we’re ready to put these on naval ships.”

Klunder isn’t worried about the ships generating sufficient energy to fill the laser gun’s magazine, which has been an engineering concern of the Navy’s for years. “I’ve got the power,” said Klunder, who spoke during the Office of Naval Research’s biennial science and technology conference. “I just need to know on this ship, this particular naval vessel, what are the power requirements, and how do I integrate that directed energy system or railgun system.”

That’s a relief for the Navy. It means that the Navy’s future ships probably won’t have to make captains choose between maneuvering their ships and firing their laser weapons out of fear they’d overload their power supplies.

But shipboard testing is underway. Klunder wouldn’t elaborate, but he said that there have been “very successful” tests placing laser weapons on board a ship. That’s not to say the first order of business for naval laser weaponry will be all that taxing: In their early stages, Pentagon officials talk about using lasers to shoot down drones or enable better sensing. Klunder alluded to recent tests in which the Navy’s lasers brought drones down, although he declined to elaborate.

Then come the unmanned submarines. Current, commercially available drone subs typically swim for several days at a time, according to Frank Herr, an Office of Naval Research department head who works on so-called unmanned underwater vehicles, or UUVs. That’s way behind the capabilities that successive Navy leaders want: crossing entire oceans without needing to refuel. So Klunder wants to raise the bar.

“The propulsion systems that I think you’re going to see within a year are going to give a UUV with over 30 days of endurance,” Klunder said. By 2016, a prototype drone sub for the office’s Long Duration Unmanned Underwater Vehicle program should be able to spend 60 days underwater at a time: “That’s ahead of schedule of what we told the secretary of the Navy a year ago.”

That’s a challenge for the subs’ propulsion and fuel systems. Typically, Herr explains, the commercially available batteries built into prototype drone subs take up a lot of the ship; but building bigger subs just increases the need for power. The nut that the Office of Naval Research has to crack is using more efficient fuel cells while designing subs that don’t need as much energy to run. “We’re thinking about power requirements for these systems as well as the power sources available for them,” Herr says.

“The breakthrough,” Klunder explains, “was really on getting past your more traditional lead-acid battery pieces to more technically robust but also mature lithium ion fuel cell technology and the hybrids of that.”

None of that is to say the lasers will be actually on board by 2014 or the drone subs will disappear beneath the waves for 60 days by 2016. That depends in part on the Navy’s ability to afford it — and at the conference this morning, Adm. Mark Ferguson, the Navy’s vice chief, warned that “research and development is part of that reduction” in defense budgets currently scheduled to take effect in January. But it might not be long before Klunder is finally able to hand over a battle-ready laser cannon to Big Navy.


More Brits Believe In Aliens Than In God, Survey Claims


The number of those who believe in extraterrestrial life is significantly higher than those who believe in God in the United Kingdom, a survey commissioned by a new alien-themed video game claims.

The survey, for which the "XCOM: Enemy Unknown" videogame hired market research agency Opinion Matters to conduct, suggests that 52 percent of U.K. adults believe UFO evidence has been covered up because widespread knowledge of their existence would threaten government stability, as opposed to 44 percent who say they believe in God.

Around 10 percent of the country also claims to have seen a UFO, with almost a quarter more men claiming to have done so than women, the survey indicated. It also suggested that about 20 percent of the country believes UFOs have landed, while over 5 million U.K. residents believe the Moon landings were faked.

Opinion Matters, which surveyed 1,359 U.K. adults, says the results are representative of the population in the U.K.

"Yes, it has been done with an independent panel through a bonafide research company," says Karen Brooks, managing director of Opinion Matters. "Surveys can be done face-to-face, over the telephone and online. This one was a U.K. adult sample, which is quite broad, and doing it online is a quick, effective way of getting to that audience," she continued. "We make sure that all of the questions are compliant from a research perspective."

Nick Pope, formerly of the British Government's Ministry of Defense UFO Project, said he believes the survey results. "Just 20 years ago, religion was a huge part of life in the U.K., and this shows just how much attitudes have changed," he told "Belief in the alien phenomenon is now more widespread than ever, with many wondering how we and our governments would react to the news that aliens existed."

However, Alistair Macdonald-Radcliff, an Anglican priest, told Huffington Post that he is "inherently skeptical about what these statistics tell you, and particularly if there's a narrow, selective base."

Macdonald-Radcliff, director general of the World Dialogue Council and who has worked with statistics on religion, added that "the failure to define what they're asking people to believe here is a fairly critical failure for the survey.

Because you've already set out quite a variety of possibilities as to what they might or might not suppose UFOs to be. I certainly think sliding extraterrestrial and UFO together is a particularly messy thing to do."


The Consumer Church: Hype Vs Holy Spirit


A Colorado Springs megachurch pastor became disillusioned when he began to follow on Twitter around a dozen high-profile pastors whose ministries he respected.

These pastors would regularly tweet something that was, in Pastor Brady Boyd's opinion, overflowing with hype. "Super Bowl of all Sundays," "the megamonster of all sermons," "I can't think of another time I have been more excited about preaching a message," they tweeted as they touted upcoming weekend services.

"How can it be, week after week?" Boyd, senior pastor of New Life Church, wrote in his newly released book Sons & Daughters.

Sadly, the result of hype is a church full of consumers.

"It would be easy to blame church congregations for the madness that has consumed our gatherings these days, except that from what I see from their pastors, we're conditioning them to behave this way. We hype and promote and position and tweet and inadvertently create pews full of consumers instead of devoted worshipers of God," Boyd stated.

"We hyp-ers are setting up our people to expect an experience, instead of teaching them to encounter their Lord."

This all dates back to the 1950s, Boyd told The Christian Post. That is when pastors decided to grow a church by creating a product that's easy to consume.

"We realized that if we could package the Gospel and church in a tidy little package then people would buy it better. That's exactly what happened in America," the 45-year-old pastor commented.

Over the years, the church has built marketing strategies and became leadership and corporate experts, borrowing practices from the entrepreneurial, capitalistic world.

The strategy worked. The number of megachurches has increased from less than a hundred before 1950 to a few thousand today.

Boyd, whose church has some 10,000 members, acknowledged that there isn't an evil motive or intention behind all this. But churches have adopted a model he finds unsustainable.

"We're adopting the world's model to build God's Church; it's not a sustainable model," he said. "These churches are built on marketing principles and not the Holy Spirit, in many cases. Or they're built on both and you can't combine them. It's like oil and water."

The Colorado pastor said he doesn't want to be preoccupied with how to keep consumers happy. That's not his goal. His goal each weekend is to "display passion that comes from having been in the presence of God, instead of the slickness that always surfaces when you've been sucked into the latest trend."

Boyd offered a recipe for hype-free pastoring: prayer, reading Scripture, and giving spiritual direction to people in need. This forces the pastor to rely on the Holy Spirit and not on big personality.
Unfortunately, such a recipe isn't celebrated in churches today.

Rather, what's celebrated, he said, is the pastor who is going 100 miles an hour, writing books every year, and speaking at every conference – all while leading a church.

"I know so many pastors who are going so hard and so fast," he told CP. "The pastors that scare me the most are those that don't know how to slow down and have fun and laugh and relax. I'm around these type A, hard-driving, and they pastor small churches and big churches."

And that's what people are applauding, he lamented.

When was the last time we celebrated the contemplative or reflective pastors who are leading their congregations well, balancing their life and spending time with their families? Boyd posed.

In his new book, Boyd wants to convey to Christians the message that more than what you do, what matters to God is who you are.

Many Christians are living the exhausting life of a "slave" – working their way into God's favor – when in reality, God has embraced them as sons and daughters.

Boyd admits that he was "the best Christian slave ever," attending every event, volunteering for everything, and doing everything he could to be accepted by God.

But he came to realize one profound truth that he was missing for most of his Christian life – that God adopted him and calls him "son."

Once you believe that you are the son or daughter of God, it changes everything, he said.

"We are accepted, approved, and adored. No amount of laudable effort can garner more favor than is already ours right now," he wrote.

"Being a son or daughter takes so much pressure off you," he explained to CP. "I could live the rest of my life without having to prove anything to anybody.

"I can be who I am. That's when you're most powerful."

What events will have to happen before the temple can be rebuilt in Jerusalem? - Rapture Watch





A Jewish wedding and the pre-tribulation rapture - Rapture Watch


Rebuffing EU, Netanyahu says ‘no limits’ on Jerusalem construction

                              Verse of the Day

Zechariah 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.


I had a wonderful time speaking at the SW Radio Church conference in Gettysburg, PA. It was put on by Noah Hutchings who is a very good friend of mine. My topic was my book As America Has Done to Israel. I met many people who follow the blog and was overwhelmed about how blessed they are. My speaking has wound down for the year and now I’ll be spending time researching and writing my latest book.
Speaking of books, the update to As America Has Done to Israel is now printed. My publisher has it and will release it soon. When I have it, I’ll let you know in case you want to order it. I added only about 25 pages but it is crammed with incredible information.
Suspect in Libya Attack, in Plain Sight, Scoffs at U.S. 10/18/12 It does appear that the LORD is going to remove Obama from office. Like many of the presidents before him, he tampered with Israel and now is under the curse. He publicly humiliated Prime Minister Netanyahu and only seven days later he was humiliated during the debate. His presidency is downhill since. Then came the crisis in Libya which he and his administration lied about. He is caught, out in the open, with the lies. This greatly added to his collapsing of this presidency.
The Muslim terrorists who killed Ambassador Stevens are bold about what they did and moving throughout Libya without any fear. Remember, Obama started the Libyan war, and now it has come full circle to tear at his reelection. What irony that he started a war that could directly lead to his removal from office.
“Witnesses and the authorities have called Ahmed Abu Khattala one of the ringleaders of the Sept. 11 attack on the American diplomatic mission here. But just days after President Obama reasserted his vow to bring those responsible to justice, Mr. Abu Khattala spent two leisurely hours on Thursday evening at a crowded luxury hotel, sipping a strawberry frappe on a patio and scoffing at the threats coming from the American and Libyan governments.”
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Israel and the Middle East War

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues to press forward with building in Jerusalem
Rebuffing EU, Netanyahu says ‘no limits’ on Jerusalem construction 10/21/12 The European Union is once again after Israel for building homes in Jerusalem. The world cannot stand Israel doing anything in Jerusalem. This is going to escalate until the entire world is drawn into the final battle that triggers the Second Coming of Jesus Christ with His church. The cry of the Islamic caliphate when it attacks Israel will be Jerusalem. They do not survive this battle.
“There will be “no limits” to construction in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said during a cabinet meeting on Sunday. His comments come two days after the European Union, Britain and France condemned the Interior Ministry’s approval of a plan to build almost 800 new housing units in Gilo, a southern Jerusalem neighborhood beyond the 1967 Green Line.
“We are not imposing any restrictions on construction in Jerusalem. It is our capital,” Netanyahu said. He added Israel has a connection to Jerusalem as “ancient and powerful” as other states do to their capital.”
Egypt’s Islamists play to anti-Israel sentiment 10/13/12 Egypt is under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood, so it is impossible for this nation to remain in its treaty with Israel. As the Brotherhood gains more power, it will turn the nation against Israel. Notice how the focus is on Jerusalem. This is why I always watch what is happening with Jerusalem, as I believe it will be the catalyst for this all-out war between Israel and the Arabs.
“The Brotherhood’s supreme leader Mohammed Badie called on Muslims worldwide this week to defend Jerusalem, saying “Zionists only know the way of force.” He said that Jews were spreading “corruption,” had slaughtered Muslims and desecrated holy sites.
“It is time for the Muslim … to unite for the sake of Jerusalem and Palestine after the Jews have increased the corruption in the world, and shed the blood of (Muslims),” Badie said.”
Hezbollah, Lebanon’s Baath call for eradication of Israel 10/19/12 I have said this over and over that Lebanon is not going to survive this war. The prophet Obadiah is clear that Israel is going to move its border north into Lebanon after the all-out war.

Israel Reports First Use of Surface-to-Air Missile by Gaza Terrorists

In a new sign of the growing dangers facing Israel, security officials have confirmed that terrorists in the Gaza Strip for the first time have fired an anti-aircraft missile at an Israeli aircraft.

Officials told the Yedioth Ahronoth daily that the weapon, apparently a Strela shoulder-launched surface-to-air missile, targeted an Israeli military helicopter over the Hamas-ruled territory last week but missed.

Israel has long suspected Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza of having such weapons, and amid the chaos accompanying the downfall of the Gaddafi regime in Libya many went missing, and more are believed to have been smuggled into the Strip, via tunnels from the Sinai peninsula.

Soviet-designed Strela-2 missiles (known by NATO as SA-7 Grail) have been used in various insurgencies around the world, including the mujahedeen’s fight against the Soviets in Afghanistan, and the anti-coalition insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade.

The threat posed by such missiles—also known as "man-portable air defense systems" (MANPADS)—has been cited for years by Israeli security officials in expressing concerns about the risks of Palestinian militants using them against passenger aircraft approaching and leaving Israel’s main international airport.

Ben Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv is located less than five miles from the nearest territory the Palestinians want included in a future state.

In September last year White House counter-terrorism advisor John Brennan told reporters that administration was concerned that Libyan regime weapons including MANPADS could get into the hands of al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups.

It was reported at the time that thousands of shoulder-launched anti-aircraft missiles were unaccounted for in Libya, having gone missing from a looted regime arms depot.

MANPADS’ ease of operation, portability and relatively low cost make them a weapon of choice for terrorists wanting to target civilian or military aircraft.

According to U.S. government data, more than 40 civilian aircraft have been hit by such weapons over the past four decades, resulting in some 800 deaths. Rebels used the weapons to shoot down a plane carrying the presidents of Burundi and Rwanda in 1994, an act that helped to trigger the genocide that claimed more than 800,000 lives.

In one known al-Qaeda use, terrorists tried unsuccessfully to down an Israeli airliner shortly after it took off from an airport in Kenya in 2002.

The reported use of MANPADS by Gaza-based terrorists came during the same week that Hezbollah, the Shi’ite Iranian proxy in Lebanon, deployed a drone aircraft over Israel. The unmanned plane was shot down over an uninhabited area in southern Israel, and Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah in a speech said it had been designed in Iran and assembled by his group in Lebanon.


Why the World Won’t End Until at Least 2024!

This article was written for Jewish Voice Magazine’s January – February 2013 edition.
Fortunately astute Bible prophecy believers weren’t surprised when they woke up on December 22, 2012 and discovered that the Mayan Mesoamerican Long Count calendar was inaccurate. All the hype about the end of the world occurring on December 21, 2012 was baseless to them because they recognized that this present world wouldn’t end until seven-years of tribulation passed upon the earth.
The seven-year “Tribulation Period,” as it is commonly referred to in many Christian circles, is a major eschatological theme in the Bible. Other associated biblical tags for this period are, “Daniel’s Seventieth Week,” “The Day of the Lord,” “The Time of Jacob’s Trouble,” and several more. According to Daniel 9:26-27 this period commences when the Antichrist confirms a seven–year covenant with “many,” including the nation of Israel. We recognize Israel’s participation in this treaty from Isaiah 28:15 and 18, and Daniel 9:24.
Isaiah’s verses inform us that Israel at the time is extremely concerned about some “overflowing scourge” that is sweeping through the world. The Israeli leadership believes that by partaking of this future treaty, which Isaiah calls a “covenant with death,” enables the Jewish state to avert destruction. Daniel 9:24 clarifies that seventy weeks of years are determined for the Jews and the holy city of Jerusalem to accomplish seven important spiritual feats.
There are many portions of scripture that split this seven-year period of tribulation into two-parts. It is commonly taught among Bible prophecy teachers that the first three and one-half years present Israel with a period of peace, but that peace is abruptly interrupted at the mid-point when the Antichrist enters into the coming third Jewish temple, and fulfills the Daniel 11:31 and 12:11 prophecies Christ warned about in Matthew 24:15.
This abominable act of the Antichrist is commonly called the “Abomination of Desolation.” From that point forward the Antichrist attempts a final genocidal attempt of the Jews during the last three and one-half years of tribulation, which is often referred to as the “Great Tribulation” period. During the Great Tribulation Zechariah 13:8-9 warns that two-thirds of the Israelis will be killed, but fortunately the other third will survive and become a faithful believing remnant.
The glaring point of all this mind-boggling prophetic information above is that the Antichrist has not confirmed this seven-year covenant with Israel yet. Therefore the end of this present world can’t come for at least seven more years. In fact, I explain in my book, Revelation Road, Hope Beyond the Horizon, why there is probably a minimum of eleven and one-half years remaining on the end time’s clock. Below is a quote from the pertinent section of Revelation Road, but first here is an important preface.
In fifty-two highly descriptive passages the prophet Ezekiel predicts that nine sizable populations will invade Israel in the “latter years.” This is a prophecy that many Bible prophecy teachers are expecting to find final fulfillment in the near future. The image identifies the consensus among many scholars of who these ancient populations represent on a modern day map.

Fortunately, the Lord intervenes on Israel’s behalf and divinely defeats this formidable Gog of Magog coalition according to Ezekiel 38:18-39:6. Subsequently, the nation of Israel embarks upon a national campaign to harness the energy from the weapons of these defeated enemies. With this in mind the quote from Revelation Road reads as follows;
Ezekiel 39:9-10 suggests Israel will possess the know-how to convert the weapons of mass destruction possessed by the Ezekiel 38 invaders into fuel. Israel appears to utilize these weapons for fuel and energy consumption for a period of seven-years. This will be no problem during the peaceful first half of the tribulation, but not likely during the perilous second half, because Jews will be fleeing for their lives, rather than harnessing this energy.
Therefore, many scholars suggest that Ezekiel 38 must conclude, not commence, no later than three and one-half years before the seven-years of tribulation even begins. This allows the Jews seven full years to burn the weapons before they begin fleeing for their lives. Realistically, it will probably take approximately a year to even collect, dismantle, and covert the weapons cache prior to that.
Here’s how this could break down incrementally in real time. Allow about one year for the Ezekiel 38 battle to occur and the weapons to be converted. Remember, assembling a coalition and mobilizing an invasion of the scope described in Ezekiel 38 is no twenty-four hour undertaking. Then consider an additional seven-year span to burn the weapons. And lastly, add in the final three and one-half years of Great Tribulation, for a total of eleven and one-half years.
If this hypothesis is correct, this means that at least (underscore at least because it’s probably going to be longer) that from the time the Ezekiel 38 invasion begins until the second coming of Christ to set up His kingdom, there will exist approximately eleven and one-half years. I could be more technical on the timing, because Daniel 12:11-12 adds an additional seventy-five days to the equation. His infamous ‘Seventieth Week’ ends, and then the two and one-half month interval kicks in, at which time the sheep and goat judgment of Matthew 25:32-46 seemingly takes place.” (2)
Revelation Road, Hope Beyond The HorizonIn conclusion; according to the Bible prophecies listed in this article, it appears that the present world appears to survive at least until the year 2024! This is not a prediction, but rather an educated prophetic observation.
Some scholars teach that little or no time separates the Gog of Magog invasion from the Tribulation period, and others believe the invasion actually occurs during the Tribulation. I agree with those that teach the Ezekiel 38 invasion must conclude at least three and one-half years before the seven-years of tribulation commences. After the Ezekiel invasion Israel may have more than seven-years of weapons supply for energy consumption. They could have ten or more years for all we know. But one thing seems almost certain, that at the mid-point of the Tribulation period when the genocidal campaign of the Antichrist is in full swing, Israelis appear to be fleeing for their lives rather than converting enemy weapons into sources of energy.
