It Is Happening. Israel, Turkey, Iran, Russia, Saudi Arabia … Are All Making Major Peace Treaty And It Is Time Westerners Understand What All This Means Prophetically

By Walid Shoebat

It is time to learn and understand, to wake up, and not to slumber, to have oil in your lamps and not be caught in the dark. IT IS FINISHED. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan today on Wednesday signed the reconciliation deal with Israel into law. At the same rate Saudi Arabia has been also making historic peace gestures to Israel as well after realizing its isolation in the Middle East. Iran too is attempting to reach out to King Salman of Saudi Arabia to make peace, while Russia and Turkey are also making peace. Indeed, this year can be marked as ‘peace in our times’ while the Middle East implodes in much sectarian strife. This makes this year the most unusual year in the last few decades. So what is exactly going on and who is the devil here, Turkey, Iran, Russia or Saudi Arabia, and how does this play prophetically? Here we will share the key to unlock it all. Read slowly, absorb and stay awake.

THE KEY TO UNDERSTANDING MIDDLE EAST PEACE DEALS
It is here that westerners simply do not get it regarding the Muslim world. The Middle East being ‘complex’ is a myth. It is not as complex in its workings as the West. The first type of peace in the Muslim world, is that peace which is sought by the weaker Muslim nation and the stronger non-Muslim nation. This is done in order to gain time, in order to gain strength, concessions and inroads to the enemy.

When it comes to other type of peace, Muslim on Muslim peace, unlike Christians in the West, the stronger Muslim nation would seek to make peace with the weaker Muslim nation, in order to gulp it up later. It is the lure of the pimp to the naive prostitute. A weaker Muslim nation like Saudi Arabia would tend to make peace with its enemy’s stronger enemy (Israel) while avoiding peace with the other stronger Muslim enemy: Iran. This is exactly what is happening.

Turkey is however buttering up to Israel in order to gain inroads to major concessions. Such concessions debunk the myth that the Jews are smarter than devils.

Erdogan officially approved the deal by the Turkish parliament which calls for Israel to pay $20 million in compensation (admitting guilt even though they were attacked conducting a formal inspection) to a fund for the families of those killed in the Mavi Marmara incident (who needed killing) six years ago, and allow Turkey to provide humanitarian aid to Gaza via the Ashdod port. In exchange, Turkish legislation will prevent any outstanding legal claims against IDF soldiers, and Turkey will be obligated to prevent Hamas from preparing attacks against Israel – including fund-raising – from Turkish soil (ya sure).

Turkish President's Office

Turkish President’s Office “Israeli diplomat Shani Cooper shakes hands with Turkish President Erdogan at a Victory day celebration in Ankara on August 30, 2016”

The latter proves that Israel is playing with fire, especially after a leaked intelligence document in Germany reveals that Turkey is financing an assortment of terrorist groups in the Middle East, including Hamas. Yet all this had no impact on the deal. Indeed, Israel is being suckered for ‘peace at any cost’.

ARD published parts of the secret German government report, which it said marked the first official assessment directly linking Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Turkey’s government to support for Islamist and terrorist groups. The report said Turkey had become “the central hub for Islamist groups in the Middle East.” ARD quoted the German Interior Ministry report as saying:

“the numerous affirmations of solidarity and support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, for Hamas and for armed Islamist opposition groups in Syria by the ruling AKP party and Erdogan underscore their ideological affinity to their Muslim brothers.”

Few are considering that when in June, Netanyahu defended the deal when he went to Rome to construct it, that the deal, not just opens Turkey into Gaza, but Jerusalem will be opened for an additional pilgrimage so when Muslims do the Hajj to Mecca, they will, in addition, swerve towards Jerusalem’s Temple Mount for an additional pilgrimage. Turkey even sent a number of positive signals towards Israel, including ending its veto over Israeli cooperation with NATO.

Turkey by this deal is not only gaining concessions from a lucrative deal for gas from Israel via Turkey to Europe, but there is another lucrative deal of a spiritual content which the Jews will pay for heavily. That is, Turkey has its eye on Jerusalem.

You will never read in the media, that Turkey’s peace deal with Israel is an infiltration to making Turkey the champion of Jerusalem, in order to send its floods, including taking over jurisdiction of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount from its current legal custodian: Jordan.

It is as if Jacob scooped up the bowl of porridge out of what Esau cooked up.

Muslim Jerusalemites these days welcome Turkish officials and show a greater appreciation for Turkey over Jordan, which is moderate in comparison with Turkey. Palestinians are now getting used to attacking Jordanian delegations on the Temple Mount forcing them to flee from the Temple Mount’s courtyard. Mehmet Görmez, the Mufti of Turkey gets to speak at the pulpit while Jordanian muftis are ousted preparing the day when Erdogan will speak at the Temple.

Mehmet Görmez speaking from the Temple Mount’s Al-Aqsa Mosque on why Jerusalem must stop Jews from furthering their agenda in Jerusalem

Mehmet Görmez had said that “Jerusalem was a part of the Umrah trip in the past [during the Ottoman Empire] and that works were being conducted to incorporate it into the program.”

By this, Turkish leaders now play a regional role, similar to that of the Ottoman Empire in the Arab and Muslim world, especially by already acting as the custodians over east Jerusalem. Turkey has been working on promoting its ties with Jerusalem for some time now to include Muslims making the pilgrimage to Jerusalem. The Umrah is usually a pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, performed by Muslims that can be undertaken at any time of the year, in contrast to the Hajj which is at a specific month.

Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet) issued a decision in April 2015, to include Jerusalem’s Temple Mount (Al-Aqsa Mosque) into the Umrah religious pilgrimage. Turkey’s influence is changing the Umra Hajj, which will no longer be exclusively in Mecca, and it will now include Jerusalem. This should bring in a flood of Muslims to Jerusalem. Israel, of course is deceived to have hope for increased tourism. Turkish citizens (and Muslims from around the globe) will now stay three days in Jerusalem, four days in Medina and seven days in Mecca.

While this won’t be felt soon, few years from now, this will bring in the demonstrating ‘flood’ of Muslims into the Holy Land. While Israel thinks this is a lucrative business, to bring in much needed tourism, it will soon be problematic, as we see in Europe, and by this, the dragon continues his flood after the woman as declared in Revelation 12.

Turkish president last year called on citizens to:

“raise their hands in supplication for this blessed night towards Allah to restore the Al-Aqsa Mosque [Jerusalem] to be re-owned by Muslims, and to remove the mist from their eyes, to see Jerusalem in their hands at every moment and at every opportunity”.

THE SAUDI ISRAEL PEACE
But this is not all. Turkey is not the only player approaching Israel. The Jerusalem Post just reported on Saudi Arabia having an astonishing public shift towards Israel:

“From outlets such as al-Arabiya and Riyadh newspaper, among other local or state-owned outlets – reflects secret, under the-table contact between the Arab kingdom and the Jewish state that has been a work in progress for years.”

Saudi Arabia’s major shift in painting Israel in friendly terms is less deceptive than Turkey’s. Saudi Arabia is becoming isolated by the day, and under the table sees Israel as its only hopeful ally.

And its more than just romantic media-love affair. We have seen a handshake between Israel’s Foreign Ministry Director-General Dore Gold and former Saudi government adviser Anwar Esaki. Then Eshki led a Saudi delegation to Jerusalem the following month that was publicly acknowledged. Then we had Saudi Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud also shared a stage with Israel’s former military intelligence chief, Amos Yadlin.

It can’t get anymore romantic than this. This is desperado. Saudi Arabia fears Iran.

A typical assumption would be that if Saudi Arabia fears Iran, a westerner would suppose that Saudi Arabia would want peace with Iran. After all, Israel is making peace with Saudi Arabia, and Turkey with Russia, and it is time for all to jump into the Jacuzzi tub.

IRAN SAUDI PEACE
Remember, when it comes to Muslim on Muslim peace, the stronger Muslim nation would seek to make peace with the weaker Muslim nation in order to gulp it up later. It is the lure of the pimp to the naive prostitute. A weaker Muslim nation like Saudi Arabia would tend to make peace with its enemy’s stronger enemy (Israel) while avoiding peace with the other stronger Muslim enemy: Iran.

Iran is more powerful militarily than Saudi Arabia. Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister, has offered to go to Riyadh to restore relations, but the Saudis have rejected his overtures.

“Currently, there are no negotiations between the Saudis and us. We only trade opposing remarks,” Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, told the TV channel Russia Today last week.

“We see the Saudis acting irrationally. They have started a media hype against us and keep accusing us. We shut the door of dialogue with no country except the occupying regime of Israel.”

Is Saudi Arabia being irrational not to accept the extended olive branch from Iran?

No. When it comes to Saudi Arabia, they, unlike Israel or the West, they understand well that any peace deals with other opposing Muslim states is a fruitless Hudna, talk in the wind, worthless paper to be boiled and drank as bitter herb tea, a worship of a golden calf in the Sinai where they would eventually have to crush it to dust and drink its bitter taste.

When it comes to countries like Iran or Turkey, Americans do not get it. Michael Rubin describes the misunderstanding by westerners of Turkey best. He writes:

Gullibility and naiveté on the part of diplomats are bad enough, but combine it with a failure to appreciate historyAmericans have a very different conception of history than almost any other people on earth. Americans consider anything more than a decade ago to be the distant past, and think nothing of moving a thousand miles away. In Turkey—and much of the rest of the world—it’s the opposite: People are hard-pressed to move 10 miles from their family but consider the last thousand years as yesterday. Put another way, Most Americans focus on the future unencumbered by slights suffered by their grandparents, great-grandparents, or co-religionists whom they have never met, but men like Erdogan nurse ancient grudges as if they suffered the slights personally. Erdogan sees himself on a mission not only to right what he considers to be historical wrongs in Turkey, but also to promote Sunni Islam worldwide.

Therefore, Saudi Arabia, the global center for exporting Jihad ideology is in check. It knows that the Middle East understands only one language besides the Quran’s Arabic: the language of strength.

No matter what peace gestures, or romantic poetry Iran uses to lure the whore of Arabia, she will not budge. Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, a member of the Iranian parliament’s national security and foreign affairs committee pointed to the position of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, attempting to attract Saudi King Salman, to give up on his war against Yemen’s Shiite Houthis and to have peace:

“If you pay attention to the supreme leader’s positions addressing Saudi Arabia, you will see that he constantly advises Saudi Arabia to leave this suicidal path and advises their young leaders and in fact new leaders to get into Islamic interactions and to moderate their behaviour. I believe that the supreme leader’s advice to Saudi officials is brotherly and fatherly advice.”

The King’s ‘no budge’ is for good reason. He knows that Iran simply wants to buy time to spread its revolution into Yemen, Bahrain and within Saudi Arabia itself and the rest of the Gulf.

King Salman knows well, that in the Middle East, you can’t have two roosters ruling the same holy place, or two holy places (Mecca and Karbala) ruling all rank-n-file roosters who according to Arabia are supposed to only be circumambulating around the Kaaba alone.

Either one of the two roosters, or one of the two holy places, must completely disappear off the face of the earth. It is either Karbala or Mecca, Salman or Khomeini.

This has been brewing for centuries, and to Iran’s Shiite version of Muslim theology, it is their rooster and their holy place (Karbala) who must win:

Once the land of Ka’bah declared proudly, ‘Which land is like me? Allah has made His House on me. People from all parts of the earth come to pay homage to me. I have been made sacrosanct (haram) and sacred by Allah.’ On hearing this Allah, revealed, ‘Be silent! Wait a little (before you say anything further). By My Might and My Honour, the excellence and distinction I have granted to the land of Karbala is more than what I have given you. Compared to Karbala, your position is like a needle head sized drop in front of the sea. If the dust of Karbala had not been there, I would never have bestowed this honour upon you. If the one resting in Karbala (Imam Husain (a.s.)) had not been there, I would neither have created you nor the House over which you are so haughty. Wait, adopt humility and modesty and don’t be arrogant and boastful. Don’t try to prevail over Karbala in importance (as that is not possible). Else I will be displeased with you and throw you in Hell.’ (Kaamil al-Ziarat, p.267, tradition 13, narrating from Imam Ja’far al-Al-Sadiq also see here)

Westerners do not get it. When Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei instructs Saudi Arabia to “moderate,” “refrain,” “behave,” and then instruct “Saudi Arabia to leave this suicidal path” he is speaking as if it was Allah’s instruction, since Allah now is upset with Mecca’s pride and is about to “throw her in hell”. In other words, Arabia is committing Seppuku, not on her own, but by Iran acting as the arm of Allah.

Westerners do not know, that when easterners read their Bibles, that they see this in Isaiah 21 and in the Apocalypse; the beast must burn the harlot and ravish her and that God will commit them to do it.

Saudi Arabia knows its in check, regardless to which side it goes, Israel or Iran.

Iranian analysts are already saying that Riyadh’s power is in check. But in reality they are both in check to collide in a bitter war. Kayhan Barzegar, the director of the Institute for Middle East Strategic Studies reveals that “the stakes are high. Iran’s oil facilities are in the south and Saudis are in the east, both relatively near each other. They could both quickly be destroyed in a hot war”.

When we in the east read the Bible regarding Babylon becoming “burning pitch” we recognize exactly what will happen. To us the Bible is as it is to Americans reading the New York Times. And now you know why Saudi Arabia, the prostitute, is being lured. It knows that it is doomed and her time is near.

This is why westerners should focus more, not on the Turkish President Recep Erdogan’s visit to St. Petersburg on August 9, but the unscheduled one-day trip to Ankara by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on August 12. This visit have phenomenally transformed Middle East’s power dynamic.

During that visit, Tehran shared valuable intelligence with the Turkish authorities regarding an imminent military coup on July 15. This factor alone seems destined to work wonders for the Turkish-Iranian ties.

Cavusoglu of Turkey said: “The security and stability of Iran is Turkey’s security and stability, and we believe this is the case with Iran, too.”

This is a blow for Saudi Arabia which had announced Erdogan’s end on July 15th coup. It made a fatal blunder as to who her real lovers were. We can now read the writing on the wall for Mystery Babylon: “Mene Mene tekel upharsin”.

U-prarsin means “and the Phars”. Phars are the Persians (Iran). There is another ‘hint hint’ in this prophecy: the Persians are coming and the hour of doom for Arabia is near.

    Walid, you once mentioned that your sister still lives in Mecca. Is she still living there?

  • richinnameonly

    But, but…..this is not the famous 7 year covenant or agreement of Dan 9:27, is it? Or might that be one when Turkey/Erdogan/Anti Christ starts to officially head the other countries that will form the final caliphate (renewed Ottoman Empire)? Things are really moving.
    Mentions of Israel mistakenly thinking about big tourist revenues makes me remember working for a charter airline that flew many Muslims to the Hajj. Those passengers stole anything they could, complained about everything, and left the planes a wreck inside.

    • AnthonyM

      I think Israel will rue the day they first looked forward to the income of an increased muslim tourism. There will be many hidden, and unexpected costs.

      • magaforever

        I just don’t get it how damn stupid can the Jews get ??.stupid stupid stupid.. they don’t even believe their own prophets …STUPID!!!!!!

        • Owen Schumacher

          Are Russia or the West acting any smarter? Haha! Everyone’s dumb but Erdoğan, I guess. Of course the last laugh will be on him.

      • filomena seiffert

        As well as terrorist attacks

    • Personally, I accept St. Irenaeus’ interpretation that the length of Antichrist’s reign will be 42 months long.

      In Islam, a peace treaty can be up to 10 years as it was established by Muhammad himself but he broke it in 2 years. So I’m not going to focus on number as peace treaty in Islam is often hunda.

      • richinnameonly

        Yes, I’m thinking that this one is a hudna to further Erdogan’s progress toward his goals, but is not THE “covenant” named in Dan 9:27. That’s the one supposedly for 7 years but broken mid-way, along with anti Christ causing the Eucharist sacrifice to cease. I would think that one will be at a time when all the Islamic kingdoms are lined up and ready for the new caliphate. But we don’t have hindsight yet.

        • Again, I refer back to St. Irenaeus works on this subject.

  • AnthonyM

    Wow, Walid. You gave me shivers with the line “IT IS FINISHED.”
    Peace is just bustin’ out all over, it seems.
    It makes sense that Erdogan will have his eye on Jerusalem. That will be his catalyst for the muslim world to be in awe of him. Once that camel gets his nose under that tent, the whole structure will come down.

    • Doc

      You’ve heard people on TV and radio talk about “peace”, “security”, etc. in the Middle East. I actually heard a commentator use the phrase “peace and safety” the other day. Soon everyone will be using this exact phrase as destruction draweth nigh.

      • Indeed, Doc, and it’s when we need to shut the door and windows because the fury will come.

  • James

    Israel, geographic Israel is the false Israel. Does anyone seriously expect a nation that was set up by a socialist freemason, David Ben-Gurion to be an ally of Christendom? The masons are the NWO and are the allies of Saudi Arabia and Turkey, this will not change.

    Our Lord is the real king of Israel, the true Israel, that is Christendom. That’s the point of him being born of David’s royal line and the significance of his having received the gift of gold was symbolic of his kingship.

    Our Lord is never going to abdicate in favour of any Israeli PM or acknowledge anything else that comes along calling itself Israel. Certainly not when its been set up by some socialist member of a secret society. The state of Israel is an imposter and so to is any earthly leader of ‘Israel’.

    Does it not say in all our Bibles that Our Lord won’t be returning until the Jews say “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord?”

    According to a story about St Padre Pio it would appear that the Jews are saved too or at least the devout ones; but its important that we pray for them of course
    Which is why the Church has put much emphasis on praying for the conversion of the Jewish people throughout its history.

    “Florence Fine Ehrman’d father contracted in 1965 a severe form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. He asked for Padre Pio’s prayers. Her father died in January 1966.
    She went to Padre Pio in October 1967 asking if her father, a devout Jew, was saved. “Julius Fine is saved, but we need to pray a lot for him.”

          • You need to read up on the Parable of the Vineyard and the Wicked Tenants. From the words of Jesus HIMSELF.

            Here is but one source — again, READ THIS! And the other link from Catholic Bridge. Please.

            This is from Fr. Thomas Rosica (29 Sept, 2014)

            http://saltandlighttv.org/blogfeed/getpost.php?id=58770&language=en

            The vineyard will not be destroyed

            In his homily at the Mass to mark the opening of the XII Synod of Bishops on “The Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church” on October 5, 2008, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI spoke beautifully of today’s parable:

            In the end, the owner of the vineyard makes a final attempt: he sends his own son, convinced that at least they will listen to him. Instead the opposite happens: the labourers in the vineyard murder him precisely because he is the landowner’s son, that is, his heir, convinced that this will enable them to take possession of the vineyard more easily.

            We are therefore witnessing a leap in quality with regard to the accusation of the violation of social justice as it emerges from Isaiah’s canticle.

            Here we clearly see that contempt for the master’s order becomes contempt for the master: it is not mere disobedience to a divine precept, it is a true and proper rejection of God: the mystery of the Cross appears.

            Yet there is a promise in Jesus’ words: the vineyard will not be destroyed.

            While the unfaithful labourers abandon their destiny, the owner of the vineyard does not lose interest in his vineyard and entrusts it to other faithful servants.

            This means that, although in certain regions faith is dwindling to the point of dying out, there will always be other peoples ready to accept it.

            For this very reason, while Jesus cites Psalm 118:117, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone” (v. 42), he gives the assurance that his death will not mean God’s defeat.

            After being killed, he will not remain in the tomb, on the contrary, precisely what seems to be a total defeat will mark the beginning of a definitive victory.

            His painful Passion and death on the Cross will be followed by the glory of his Resurrection. The vineyard, therefore, will continue to produce grapes and will be rented by the owner of the vineyard: “to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons” (Mt 21:41).

          • magaforever

            Ive read the parable and i understand it..The bible clearly states that there are Jews in Israel who convert and call upon Jesus and he comes to save them ..in Jerusalem..where the original Israel was and is today… There’s no disputing this I don’t care what catechism or Hebrew Catholics or you say

          • magaforever

            Are you then telling me like the fool above that Jerusalem is not in Israel??

          • You are espousing Christian Zionism… do you know that most Millenials and Christian Americans are now waking up to the fact that Christian Zionism is not in accordance with Christian Tradition or theology?

            Read this article from an evangelical source.

            James is correct… Christians, Jew or Gentile, or Christianity as a religion (as in the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church) is the TRUE Christendom.

            You are infected by Zionism. Thankfully it is going out of fashion EVEN IN the American Churches.

          • James

            Fantastic points as usual Willing.
            I’d like to add that Christian Zionism is Ebionism and Ebionism has been a heresy since the early church. The definition of an Ebionite is
            “a member of an early Christian group that rejected the teachings of St. Paul and emphasised the Jewish roots of Christianity.”

            Even a quick glance at ‘Ebionites’ on WIkipedia reveals
            “the Church Fathers, who wrote polemics against the Ebionites, whom they deemed heretical Judaizers”

            Over the passage of time and in a climate of apathy, heresies such as Ebionism have been forgotten and with the impact of state supported NWO brainwashing saying how Christians and Jews must work together and how great Israel is etc. Christians have became apathetic, lazy and forgotten the past and in this ignorance have returned to old errors.

            Yes it was foretold that the Jews would return to their ancestral homeland, but it was also foretold that they would lose it to the future Great Catholic Monarch, who will doubtlessly have a sound Casus Belli against them when the world finally wakes up and realises that yes they are indeed behind Freemasonry as the Church has always maintained.

            In Monsignor DIllion’s excellent book “The Grand Orient Unmasked”

            “The Jewish connection with modern Freemasonry is an established fact everywhere manifested in its history. The Jewish
            formulas employed by Freemasonry, the Jewish traditions
            which run through its ceremonial, point to a Jewish origin, or
            to the work of Jewish contrivers . . . . Who knows but behind
            the Atheism and desire of gain which impels them to urge on
            Christians to persecute the Church and destroy it, there lies a
            hidden hope to reconstruct their Temple, and in the darkest
            depths of secret society plotting there lurks a deeper society still
            which looks to a return to the land of Judah and to the rebuilding
            of the Temple of Jerusalem?”

            “…In spite of the fact that they had been repeatedly warned,
            in types and figures, and orally by the prophets, about the way
            they would treat the true Messiah when He came, the Jews
            turned against Him and the whole Divine Plan He proposed.
            When they refused to enter into His designs, God permitted
            the crime of Deicide, and by the supreme act of humble submission
            on Calvary, the Supernatural Life of Grace was
            restored to the world. Fulfilling the prophecies to the letter,
            Our Lord allowed Himself to be put to death, but He died
            proclaiming the Divine Plan for order.
            God wished the Jews as a people to accept His Only-
            Begotten Son and to be the Heralds of the Supernatural, supernational
            Life of His Mystical Body. They were thus offered
            the glorious privilege of proclaiming and working for the only
            mode of realising the union and brotherhood of nations which
            is possible since the Fall. On account of their racial pride
            they refused to accept that there could be any higher life than
            their national life and they would not hear of the non-Jewish
            nations entering into the Kingdom of the Mystical Body on
            the same level as themselves. The Crucifixion of Our Lord
            on Calvary was, however, not only the public rejection by the
            Jewish nation of the Divine Programme for order in the world,
            but was at the same time the proclamation by that nation of
            its determination to work against God for the triumph of another
            Messias. Since Our Lord Jesus Christ, the True Messias,
            is the Source of the Supernatural Life through membership of
            His Mystical Body, the future Messias must be anti-supernatural
            or naturalistic, and membership of Christ will have
            to be eliminated in preparation for him. Since the True
            Supernatural Messias came to found the supranational kingdom
            of His Mystical Body into which he asked the Jewish
            nation to lead all nations the future Messias must be a purely
            Jewish National Messias and his mission can have no other
            object than to impose the rule of the Jewish nation on the
            other nations.
            The choice presented to the Jewish nation by the coming
            of Our Lord Jesus Christ may be represented diagramatically
            as follows:—
            Supernatural and supranational
            Kingdom of the Mystical Body of Christ.
            The Jewish nation instructed
            by the prophets.
            Naturalistic ambition to impose Rule
            of their nation.
            The Jewish nation instructed by the Prophets and Figures
            of the Old Testament, and, lastly, by St. John the Baptist, was
            meant to turn upwards, at the bidding of God become Man,
            and to put all its splendid natural qualities at the service of
            the True Supernatural order of the world. Instead of doing so,
            it turned downwards to the slavery of a self-centred ambition
            dictated by national pride. The attitude of Saul prior to his
            conversion on the road to Damascus is typical of the corrupt
            ideas concerning the mission of the Messias which had taken
            hold of Jewish minds and had led them to reject Our Lord
            Jesus Christ. St. Paul saw the truth about the Mystical Body
            of Christ after his conversion and tried to get his fellow countrymen
            to recognise their error, but the nation as such
            refused to listen. In his Christmas Allocution, 1948, Pope
            Pius XII brought out the contrast between the alternatives
            that faced the Jewish nation at the coming of Our Lord as
            follows: “Hear, resounding in the night like the bells of
            Christmas, the admirable words of the Apostle to the Gentiles,
            who had been himself a slave to the mean, narrow prejudices
            of nationalist and racial pride, stricken down along with him
            on the road to Damascus: ‘He (Christ Jesus) is our peace who
            hath made both (peoples) one . . . killing the enmities in
            Himself. And coming He preached peace to you that were
            afar off, and peace to them that were nigh.’ (Ephesians II,
            14, 15, 16, 17.)”1
            With that narrow, national outlook dictated by racial pride, which Pope Pius XII said was stricken down with St.
            Paul on the road to Damascus, the Jewish nation has continued
            on down the centuries. That outlook has, in fact, become
            more accentuated with time. Accordingly, over and above
            the fundamental disorder of original sin, there is in our fallen
            and redeemed world an additional source of disorder in the
            determined opposition of His own nation according to the
            flesh of the Redeemer and source of order.

            Mgr. H. Delassus says: “The servants of the Jews, the Freemasons,

            “The Jews have swarmed into it (Freemasonry) from the
            earliest times and controlled the higher grades and councils of the
            ancient and accepted Scottish rite since the beginning of the nineteenth
            century.” (The X-Rays in Freemasonry, by A. Cowan, p. 61.)

          • Ebionites…sounds like the so-called Hebrews Root Movement/Sacred Name/Messanic Congregation types of today.

          • magaforever

            What part of “And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall NO MORE be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.” Do you not understand?? Theyre there and they’re there for good now…no Catholic monarch is going to usurp the word of God …those who made such idiotic false prophecies aren’t really Catholic anyway

          • magaforever

            And what part of …Daniel 11:37-38New International Version (NIV)

            37 He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. 38 Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his ancestors he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts.” Do you not understand?? Antichrist will not be a Jew these verses prove that thank you very much now go review your Catholic imposter prophecies in light of this true scripture and realize how those heretics should have been executed by the Catholic Church which they infiltrated

          • magaforever

            Lol where does the bible tell us to ignore earthly Jerusalem?? Lol I’m not a Zionist I know that Israel the original land because Jerusalem is in it but smaller is run by corrupt people but that doesmt mean every jew in Israel is a horrible person ..u need to grow up and stop generalizing everyone into one category

          • Doc

            What it comes down to, fundamentally, is whether the promise given to Abraham is still valid: “I will bless them that bless you and curse them that curse you.” This does not, in my mind, mean that you have to support every sin Israel commits any more than you have to swallow the US government support of abortion even if you support the US and its population of Christians. To my mind, it’s important to support Israel as “the home of God’s chosen people” and therefore be willing to feed the poor, clothe the naked, etc. It does not mean you have to support the Israeli governments many forays into things that Yahweh would not approve. Just my humble opinion.

          • magaforever

            That’s my thoughts exactly

          • James

            Perhaps the Saints and Blessed persons who foretold of the future Great Catholic Monarch who captures Jerusalem
            and reestablishes the Kingdom of Jerusalem were likewise deluded then?

            There are many prophecies on this but here’s a couple of them;

            “After many long
            sufferings endured by Christians, and after too great an effusion of
            innocent blood, the Lord shall give peace and happiness to the
            desolated nations. A remarkable Pope will be seated on the pontifical
            Throne under the special protection of
            the Angels. Holy and full of gentleness, he shall undo all wrong; he
            shall recover the Estate of the Church, and reunite the exiled temporal
            powers. He shall be revered by everybody, and shall recover the
            Kingdom of Jerusalem. He shall reunite the Eastern and the Western
            Churches. The sanctity of this beneficent Pontiff will be so great that
            the highest potentates shall bow down in his presence. All men will
            return to the primitive Church, and there shall be only one Pastor, one
            Law, one Master — humble, modest, and fearing God.”
            Abbot Joachin Merlin (13th century)

            “Terrible wars will rage all
            over Europe. God has long been patient with the corruption of morals;
            half of mankind He will destroy. Russia will witness many outrages.
            Great cities and small towns alike will be destroyed in a bloody
            revolution that will cause the death of half the population. In Istanbul
            (Constantinople) the Cross will replace the half-moon of Islamism,
            and Jerusalem will be the seat of a King. The southern Slavs will form
            a great Catholic Empire and drive out of Europe the Turks
            (Mohammedans), who will withdraw to North Africa and
            subsequently embrace the Catholic faith.”
            Brother Louis Rocco (19th century)

            It was also the view of Yves Dupont in whose book those above prophecies can be found that;
            “The Great King will be of Frankish descent, although his
            actual nationality is uncertain. Inter-marriage be-tween the various
            royal families of Europe makes it possible for virtually every prince to
            claim Frankish ancestry
            It seems that he will travel twice to Jerusalem, once at the
            beginning of his reign to reassert the right of the Christians, and again
            at the end to fight Israel, which by then, will have grown powerful
            under the rising Antichrist”

            On the error of Judaism;

            Luke 13:34-35: “I tell you (speaking to the inhabitants of Jerusalem), you will not see me until the time comes when you say, ‘blessed be he who comes in the name of the Lord.'”

            Luke 21:24…..”Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”

            The Venerable Bede:

            in his Explanation of the Apocalypse, “it is well believed that the wicked Jews will be deceived as well as deceive, but that others will understand the law spiritually through the instruction of the great prophet Elijah, and will be incorporated among the members of the Church, and bravely overcome the enemy.”

            In a letter to his Abbot Eusebius about his Explanatio:”He has foretold that the Jews are to be made subject to the Church, and that there is to be a trial of the world at large, and that He Himself will come quickly.”

            St. Thomas Aquinas in Commentary on Epistle to the Romans:

            “The blindness of the Jews will endure until the fullness of the gentiles have accepted the faith. And this is in accord with what the Apostle says below about the salvation of the Jews, namely, that after the fullness of the nations have entered, ‘all Israel will be saved’, not individually as at present, but universally.” …

            “What, I say, will such an admission effectuate, if not that it bring the Gentiles back to life? The Gentiles would be the believers whose faith has grown cold, or even that the totality, deceived by the Antichrist, fall and are restored to their pristine fervor by the admission of the Jews.”

            Pope Innocent III in Regi Francorum (a letter about the Jews to the Kings of France and Germany):

            “not displeasing to the Lord, but rather, acceptable to Him that the Dispersion of the Jews should live and do service under Catholic Kings and Christian princes – the remnants of which then will finally be saved (Romans 9:3-24), since in those days Judah will be saved (Jeremiah 33:6-26) and Israel will dwell in mutual trust.”

            Pope Martin V, Declaration on the Protection of the Jews, 1419:

            “Whereas the Jews are made to the image of God, and a remnant of them will one day be saved, and whereas they have sought our protection: following in the footsteps of our predecessors We command that they be not molested in their synagogues; that their laws, rights and customs be not assailed; that they be not baptized by force, constrained to observe Christian festivals, nor to wear new badges, and that they be not hindered in their business relations with Christians.”

            St. Jerome, Comm. to the Song of Songs, Homily 1:

            “Their sins occasioned the salvation of the Gentiles and again the incredulity of the Gentiles will occasion the conversion of Israel. You will find both in the Apostle (St. Paul).”

            There’s a lot more but I trust these should suffice.

            If anywhere these days is the chosen nation, that nation would actually appear to be France.

            According to the Stigmatist Marie-Julie Jehanney

            “On 20th of September 1877.
            «France still refuses to return to God. Divine Jesus again addresses
            His Father. •
            « My Father, for Me it is a great suffering to strike.. . My people. . , My
            Father, My Father, look down to earth it is France, the France I love so
            much. •
            Our Lady
            :
            – My beloved Son, I HAVE ADOPTED FRANCE AS MY DAUGHTER, I
            have always protected it, IT WAS THE LILY OF MY HEART.. . •
            Saint Michael the Archangel
            :
            « Lord, all the damned have left hell and seem to be all over France , .
            .
            to throw their poison and their venom everywhere. . .
            Our Lord replies
            :
            « Holy Archangel, it is the time of his reign, but this time will pass
            quickly. Then he will enter the abyss to never leave again. He will be
            tightly chained and his chains will never break. . .
            »
            On 26th of December 1877, to Lucifer, who had just said :
            « It is necessary to crush the Lily.

            Marie-Julie retorts :
            « Satan DOES NOT LOVE THE KING. AH ! I am not like him because
            I love him ! –
            And she said :
            « One hears two great cries coming from the left. It is the cry of
            France, Our Lord says : – 1 know mis heart-breaking voice. The one who
            cries so mournfully suffers for herself and for her children, but how will
            she ever repair the cruel sufferings she has caused me since she refused
            My Cross and despised My orders ? •
            The good Mother at once intercedes :
            My beloved Son, her voice beseeches Thee. Take pity on her
            misery.
            My dear Good Mother, before she enters into her glory she will
            suffer great tribulation.
            »
            After a struggle of France who refuses the help of Saint Michael and
            then of Our Lady, she enchains France and forces her to follow Her.
            She is brought to the feet of Jesus who judges her, reviews all her
            crimes, then says :
            * WHERE IS THE WHITE FLOWER (the Lily) WHICH FORMED THE
            RADIANT CROWN ON YOUR FOREHEAD ? .
            * They have removed my white crown. .,
            * Lift your forehead and your eyes towards Me.
            »
            Lord, I am not worthy to look at Thee, I would not see Thee, I am
            blinded by my crimes. .. •
            Jesus presents the Lily to her saying :
            Guilty France, do you recognize him ? »
            France admits her guilt. .
            .
            – Guilty France, ACCEPT THIS LILY, I GIVE IT TO YOU, *
            France replies :
            « The one who caused my downfall is no longer here. He made me
            believe the lily would be my ruin, HE THREW ME INTO DARKNESS.
            Lord, I cannot come out of it without Thee.
            But France always thrusts aside the Cross , but the Cross means
            suffering… Our Lady and Saint Michael uphold France. But Our Lord
            commands Saint Michael and the good angels to dig a tomb for France
            so that she will go under the earth to rise up later, glorious and
            triumphant. .
            .
            Saint Michael then reproached the Freemasons for having seduced
            France and tells them he will reduce them to ashes…”

            Later on…

            “And again this admirable vision of 19th of April 1875 :
            She is transported to an arid and desolate desert in the middle of
            confused darkness. Before her is a tomb, that of France. A foul smell
            rose from it which prevented one from approaching it,
            All of a sudden there is a bright light and Jesus Christ descends,
            opens the tomb, leans over the corpse and takes it in His arms, gently,
            as Saint Joseph used to take the Child Jesus. France wakes up and the
            Saviour speaks to her lovingly, in a language fragrant with the divine
            ardour of the Canticle of Canticles. He promises her in the near future
            blessings, glories and triumphs that will SURPASS ALL THE PAST
            VICTORIES because she weeps for her faults, for which she repents and
            she throws herself lovingly into the Sacred Heart. Then Jesus covers her
            again and disappears.
            A fortnight later, on 4th of May 1875, again the tomb of France, but
            she has come out. She stands still in front ofJesus Christ who smiles at
            her tenderly. She is enveloped in a long black shroud, which represents
            her crimes. Jesus Christ divests her of it up to her chest. He covers her
            head with a veil that is dazzlingly white, then He tears from His Heart a
            flowering lily and plants it in the heart of the resuscitated one.
            Another fortnight later, on 19th of May 1875 :
            Marie-Julie sees France, Daughter of Jesus Christ, having almost
            reached the last degree of the Throne on which He was seated. Her
            black shroud had fallen away completely, the Saviour put it under his
            feet and France was at once adorned in a white cloak covered with
            golden lilies which enveloped her from head to feet.
            And a few days later, in a following vision, on 24th of May 1875,
            Jesus Christ was seated on a resplendent throne. Near Him, was His
            Mother. France presents herself all dressed in white and lilies. She is
            already crowned but not yet with the Great Crown which will be given
            her only at the time of her salvation. From her heart issued the lily that
            Jesus Christ had placed. She was covered in flowers. Ampngst these
            flowers was one which shone more and was more dazzling. France
            climbed the steps to the throne. Our Lady was praying, smiling and
            weeping ! Her Divine Son then cries out that He is conquered, that He
            cannot resist, that He forgets and forgives : * From now on it is up to
            thee, My Mother, to thee alone, to command and fix the hour of the
            Victory of thy beloved Daughter ! • And taking from His Heart a drop of
            blood and a tear from the eyes of Our Lady, He placed this mysterious
            mixture in the big flower of the heart of France.
            At the right of the throne the Pope (the Holy Pontiff) was kneeling,
            Jesus Christ calls him and names him « His dear son •. He makes him
            climb next to Him, then He says to him : « You have suffered enough, it
            is time you were consoled and that your enemies disappear so that your
            glory reigns sovereign in the universe.
            »
            The Pope in tears and pressed against the Heart of his Master,
            exclaims that he does not merit such a reward, that he is unworthy of
            such splendour.
            At the left of the Throne was the King. He climbs in his turn, but a
            little less high than the Pope and he too receives the divine promises.
            He is the beloved son of the Virgin and he will reign with his flag,
            symbol of purity and glory. (That is to say the white flag with lilies).
            Meanwhile, all the great saints who protect France were hovering
            around. In the first row Saint Michael, in his armour, seemed to be
            waiting proudly the hour of the battle against evil.”

            It would seem therefore that France in spite of its terrible revolution and rebellion against the faith is the chosen nation, as it has been adopted by the Blessed Mother.

            It recalls Pope Urban II’s speech at the Council of Clermont “Oh, race of Franks, race from across the mountains, race beloved and chosen by God, – as is clear from many of your works,- set apart from all other nations by the situation of your country as well as by your Catholic faith and the honor which you render to the holy Church: to you our discourse is addressed, and for you our exhortations are intended. We wish you to know what a grievous cause has led us to your country, for it is the imminent peril threatening you and all the faithful which has brought us hither. “

          • Lay_monk

            Dear James,

            Everyone certainly has a right to present their own research and perspectives on any given topic. We must remember when doing so though that our Church has a 2000 year history. In this time generation upon generation of Church saints have come and passed on to the heavenly kingdom, and in that time thousands upon thousands of prophesies have been made and Catholic commentaries notes written.

            That’s why we have the Catholic Magesterium as our final authority on matters of the faith. When she defines a doctrine through the grace of the Holy Spirit, it’s set in stone, even when this definition runs contrary to a particular writing of a Church father or the private apparitions of a saint.

            We still have some wiggle room of course within the defined parameters of our Magisterium. But these views however well researched aren’t in anyway authoritative.

            I’m sure I’ve written nothing written in this message you aren’t already aware of, I’ve simply added this note for any non-Catholic’s who stumble across this open ended discussion.

            God’s best to you brother.

          • magaforever

            Yes they were deluded heretics ..or death worthy heretic infiltrators..

          • magaforever

            Or maybe I should ask you…if Jerusalem is not in Israel then WHERE is it?

          • richinnameonly

            Uh oh, you might get a lot of figurative answers for that one. Sometimes people are so wrapped up in the figurative ones they forget there actually is a literal Jerusalem, and Israel, Mt. Zion, etc.

          • Lidia

            I think I read it somewhere-from a Jewish writer-that Israel will not exist as in “land” until the Messiah comes. Any Jewish person at that time-when the Messiah or King is present- will look out their window in Jerusalem and know that God has come to Mt. Zion and that all their promises have been fulfilled. Peace will reign on Earth and everybody on Earth will worship the one true God. The God of Israel.

            So if you look out the window today in Jerusalem, it’s not that Jerusalem that the Bible promises. Too much bloodshed all around. People hating each other and too much division. Gay parades and secularism. And most importantly–NO MESSIAH in site.

            Here is a website and there are more. Different point of views from the Jewish people. It would be interesting to hear their point of view.

          • Lidia

            Oh and another thing. God of Israel—Wasn’t Israel a person first?

          • James

            Very true about Jerusalem. It’s a place of abomination rather than resembling anything holy.
            It’s rife homosexuality as you say but also it has the most liberal laws on abortion found anywhere. They’ll favour someone who represents their depravity as their messiah rather than Our Lord whom the Talmud blasphemes.

            In view of Dupont I think we can safely say the Anti-Christ will be a Jew.
            From the “Antichrist” by Yves Dupont
            http://www.thepopeinred.com/antichrist.htm

            “Christ arose from among the Hebrews, and he (Antichrist) will spring from among the Jews. Christ showed His flesh as a Temple, and raised it up on the third day; and he, too, will raise up again the Temple of stone in Jerusalem.” (St. Hippolytus)

            “Antichrist, the son of perdition will be born in Corozain, will be brought up in Bethsaida and shall begin to reign in Capharnaum, according to what Our Lord Jesus said in the Gospel: “Woe to thee Corozain … woe to thee Bethsaida … and thou Capharnaum that art exalted up to heaven, thou shalt be thrust down to hell. (Luke, 10:13) Antichrist shall work a thousand prodigies on earth. He will make the blind see, the deaf hear, the lame walk, the dead rise, so that even the Elect, if possible, shall be deceived by his magical arts. Puffed up with pride, Antichrist shall enter in triumph the city of Jerusalem and will sit on a throne in the Temple to be adored as if he were the Son of God. His heart being intoxicated with arrogance, he will forget his being a mere man, and the son of a woman of the tribe of Dan.” (St. Zenobius)

            “Antichrist will be born of Jewish parents, of the tribe of Dan, but his mother will not be a virgin, as many believe. As the Holy Ghost came into the heart of Mary, so will the devil enter into the mother of Antichrist, and his diabolical power will always support him. Babylon will be his birthplace, but he will be reared and instructed in Bethsaida and Corozain. After his education at the hands of malignant spirits he will go to Jerusalem and place his seat in the Temple which he will have restored. He will submit to the rite of circumcision, claiming that he is the Son of the Omnipotent God. His first converts will be kings and princes. His influence will extend from sea to sea, largely through force and persuasive eloquence. He will perform many signs and great miracles. Those who believe in him will be marked on the forehead with a sign. For three and a half years he will hold sway and, at the end of that period, he will put to death Henoch and Elias, who will have previously opposed him by preaching the true faith. Shortly afterwards, Christ will appear, and Antichrist will be killed by Michael the Archangel.” (Adso the Monk, 10th Century)

            Why do you spew such idiotic false prophecy?? The bible does not say he will be a Jew born of the tribe of Dan those are your own false idiotic conclusions based on some idiot website you read or some idiot website your idiot pastor read.

      • Just to let you know, I reread the article you linked, written by Thomas King, an Orthodox Christian, and it had nothing to do with replacement theology. It was exposing the originators of anti-Jewish conspiracy theories spewing by zealot Protestants. The pushers of Catholicism as replacing Israel, aka replacement theology, are coming from pro-Israel lobby such as CUFI.

        The apostolic Church are actually a continuance of Israel, and this was something that took me a while to accept. Does it mean that the Jews are discarded? No. The Church has known about this for centuries. The problem, again, lies with Protestants who ejected history and traditions, unfortunately.

        One of the bishops told the Jews before the state of Israel was recreated in 1948 that they would have a homeland. In addition, as I said in my comment last night, there are a number of apostolic Church in Israel, many dating back to the early centuries of the Church before the Muslim invaded Israel and desecrated many Church. The Crusaders actually spent a lot of time and fortunes to restore those churches.

        Finally, the Vatican I Council had issued a prayer for the speedy conversion of the Jews to the Christian Faith, and they are, as I am, eagerly looking to the day when the Jews proclaim, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!”

          I don’t think I denied any of that all im saying is Jerusalem IS IN ISRAEL ..though it’s not as big as it should be obviously… As according to zechariah it clearly states God pours out his graces on earthly Jerusalem AND ITS INHABITANTS..he doesmt just plop down the new Jerusalem and throwaway the old one that would make this scripture a lie..and I don’t think it is …Israel hates can believe what they want

          Zechariah 12:10New King James Version (NKJV)

          Mourning for the Pierced One
          10 “And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.

  • Thanks, Walid, for this analysis. You were able to put together what I have read and made sense of it all.

    Thanks to Turkey’s NATO membership, it is the strongest military force in the Middle East, ranking second only to the United States, and in the East, ranking second only to Russia. However, in the Middle East, Turkey is top dog, hands down.

    Iran should gain strength in terms of military power once they start pumping oil and collecting revenue handsomely, and that means, the OPEC’s power should shift, which would make the oil market extremely nervous. Saudi Arabia have long been the rainmaker of the oil market, and now, I expect to see Iran overtaking Saudi Arabia in the near future.

    That is two mighty armies right there, and not even Egypt can withstand that. There is already an unholy alliance being formed with Egypt-Israel-Saudi Arabia, and that will soon be swallowed up by Turkey and Iran. Once that is done, all Muslims will have no choice but swear allegiance to the beast of Turkey-Iran empire.

    As for Israel, so many folks forget this key component, Israel is also home to several apostolic churches – Catholic, Coptic, Syriac Orthodox, Armenian Orthodox, and Russia Orthodox. Those Christians are going to be slaughtered thanks to Israel’s extreme shortsightedness, and this is something you will never, ever hear from the pro-Israel lobby such as CUFI. That is why this lamentation will be heard throughout Jerusalem when the army of the beast comes to sack Jerusalem:

    Blow a trumpet in Zion, Consecrate a fast, proclaim a solemn assembly, gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children and the nursing infants. Let the bridegroom come out of his room and the bride out of her bridal chamber. Let the priests, the LORD’s ministers, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, “Spare Your People, O LORD, and do not make Your inheritance a reproach, a byword among the nations. Why should they among the people say, ‘Where is their God?’ Joel 2:16-17

    This passage is used every year at the beginning of Lent. Ladies and gentlemen, we have been rehearsing this for when the real thing comes. Surely it come, surely it will pass, and the Day of the Lord will be upon us.

    • As usual, you post it in the morning and I put it together for the evening 😉

      • Indeed! Again, you were able to pull it all together and make sense of it from an Eastern mindset and Christian’s eschatological framework, and I appreciate it.

    • Owen Schumacher

      Trevor, about your hunch that many of the Orthodox Christians of Jerusalem will be slaughtered, are you suggesting they’ll be slaughtered by Irani-Turkish military forces or just Muslims on pilgrimage? When Walid mentioned the Umrah now being directed toward Jerusalem, my mind went straight to the calamity this will bring. Perhaps a formal army isn’t necessary for great slaughter to occur in Jerusalem, and instead all that’s needed is a great mass of wild-eyed Muslims on holiday.

      • Why not both? Yes there will be a formal army in the caliphate.

  • Indian Christian Crusader

    What about Iran and Israel ?

    Another very important and timely piece. The time is drawing ever so nearer as the Prophetic pieces of the puzzle continues to come together and is perfectly fitting like a glove. Thank you for always breaking everything down for us and connecting the dots, so we can be sure to remain ever so vigilant of what is happening in these very dark/evil days.

    That reminds me of this quote…

    1 Thessalonians 5:3
    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.

    I wonder if anything happens after this peace deal… Hm.

    This is so exiting! I’m sitting on the edge of my chair reading slowly and learning a lot. Every update is a fresh outpouring of fresh oil in my lamps. The Dragon, the Flood and his dirty lamb appearance. It’s a demonic reality right there. It is happening right before our very eyes. The dragon(satan) transforms himself to become a two horn(Turkey and Iran) lamb but his voice expose him. We must intercede for Israel in the perfect will of God and not with emotions or feeling sorry. God has a perfect plan for Israel. I’m with God and His Christ in this. Babylon will die by fire. I know now what to look for and how to be watchful and at the same time be a faithful servant. Again, thank you for your sacrifice Shoebat Foundation. I’m spending hours on you website reading and studying and sharing with my friends on Facebook. But most of them love to make selfies and post pictures of their breakfast, diners and vacations. Some of them are having a great time in Dubai. Dubai? Who the hell wants to go there. Hearing the call of prayer to allah is a torment. People has become lovers of their own self, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. I say this with a bleeding heart.

    The Talmud contains absolute bile and blasphemy against Christianity.

    I can’t help but think that this business of Erdogan being the Anti-Christ is piffle. The Anti-Christ as is hinted by the Catholic prophecies will come after the Great Catholic Monarch. After such time Turkey has already long been vanquished and the remnants of the Muslims already converted to Christianity but it will be the Jews who having lost their false Israel, incensed by this new reestablished Christian Kingdom of Jerusalem will turn to their own Messiah figure as their ‘liberator’. They will hate the ‘Goyim’ (the non-Jewish people, those they deem as mere cattle like slaves who in their view are destined to go to hell who only appear as humans as they look easier on the eyes than the foul beasts they are) The Jews will remind proud and defiant to the last and it will be from them that the Anti-Christ will come.

    From Yves Dupont’s “Catholic Prophecy”;
    “Monk Adso (10th century).”Some of our Teachers say that a King of the Franks will possess the entire Roman Empire. He will be
    the greatest and the last of all Monarchs. After having wisely
    governed his kingdom, he will go in the end to Jerusalem and will lay
    down his sceptre and his crown upon the Mount of Olives.
    Immediately afterwards, Antichrist will come.”

    Comment: The Great King will be of Frankish descent, although his
    actual nationality is uncertain. Inter-marriage be-tween the various
    royal families of Europe makes it possible for virtually every prince to
    claim Frankish ancestry
    It seems that he will travel twice to Jerusalem, once at the
    beginning of his reign to reassert the right of the Christians, and again
    at the end to fight Israel, which by then, will have grown powerful
    under the rising Antichrist. The mention of his laying down his
    sceptre and crown, coupled with that of Antichrist, seems to indicate
    that he will be defeated and killed by the Anti-Christians. This
    interpretation is confirmed by other prochecies. Thus will end the
    period of complete peace and prosperity which is to follow the
    coming disaster. And after this the End of the World, which is to mark
    the triumph of righteousness, and the reward of the elect will be quite close.”

    Wow – having all this up-to-date analysis of the players and events in the Middle East provided for us is like being able to see every stage a plant goes through, from its seed being sown until it matures into a blooming, full-size specimen. Thanks for all your dedication in spite of the occasional brats that come in here and spray round-up on it all.

    Should Erdogan be struck in the head with an iron needle?…

  • Sure. Maybe when America get rid of wussies in the White House and from the pulpits.

    Until then, Turkey is top dog in the Middle East.

  • Well done and better written.

    • Lay_monk

      Thank you. God’s blessings to you Trevor.

  • Hi Joseph,

    Nice to hear from you as always.

    Here’s another insightful article about the heresy of Christian Zionism (or British-Israelism) you may find interesting, from back in 2014.

    Guest Writer: Christian Zionism: The New Heresy that Undermines Middle East Peace, 29 Jan, 2014
    https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20140129-christian-zionism-the-new-heresy-that-undermines-middle-east-peace/
    . . .

    Within the Christian Zionist worldview, Palestinians are regarded as alien residents in Israel.

    Many Christian Zionists are reluctant even to acknowledge Palestinians exist as a distinct people, claiming that they emigrated to Israel from surrounding Arab nations for economic reasons after Israel had become prosperous.

    A fear and deep-seated hatred of Islam also pervades their dualistic Manichean theology. Christian Zionists have little or no interest in the existence of indigenous Arab Christians despite their continuity with the early church.

    In 2006, I drafted what became known as the Jerusalem Declaration on Christian Zionism signed by four of the Heads of Churches in Jerusalem:

    His Beatitude Patriarch Michel Sabbah, Latin Patriarch, Jerusalem; Archbishop Swerios Malki Mourad, Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate, Jerusalem; Bishop Riah Abu El-Assal, Episcopal Church of Jerusalem and the Middle East; and Bishop Munib Younan, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land. In it they insisted:

    “We categorically reject Christian Zionist doctrines as a false teaching that corrupts the biblical message of love, justice and reconciliation.

    We further reject the contemporary alliance of Christian Zionist leaders and organisations with elements in the governments of Israel and the United States that are presently imposing their unilateral pre-emptive borders and domination over Palestine. This inevitably leads to unending cycles of violence that undermine the security of all peoples of the Middle East and the rest of world.

    We reject the teachings of Christian Zionism that facilitate and support these policies as they advance racial exclusivity and perpetual war rather than the gospel of universal love, redemption and reconciliation taught by Jesus Christ. Rather than condemn the world to the doom of Armageddon we call upon everyone to liberate themselves from ideologies of militarism and occupation. Instead, let them pursue the healing of the nations!

    We call upon Christians in Churches on every continent to pray for the Palestinian and Israeli people, both of whom are suffering as victims of occupation and militarism. These discriminative actions are turning Palestine into impoverished ghettos surrounded by exclusive Israeli settlements. The establishment of the illegal settlements and the construction of the Separation Wall on confiscated Palestinian land undermines the viability of a Palestinian state and peace and security in the entire region.”

    The patriarchs concluded, “God demands that justice be done. No enduring peace, security or reconciliation is possible without the foundation of justice. The demands of justice will not disappear. The struggle for justice must be pursued diligently and persistently but non-violently.” The prophet Micah asks, “What does the Lord require of you, to act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8).

    It is my contention after more than 10 years of postgraduate research that Christian Zionism is the largest, most controversial and most destructive lobby within Christianity. It bears primary responsibility for perpetuating tensions in the Middle East, justifying Israel’s apartheid colonialist agenda and for undermining the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.
    . . .

    The “six basic political convictions that arise from their [that is, of the Christian Zionists’] ultra-literal and fundamentalist theology” are particularly chilling, listed in the article.

    Glory be to God more Americans and others around the world are opening their eyes to this evil and heretical political ideology disguised as a “religion”.

    • British Israelism IS NOT Christian Zionism. As usual, you mix things up.

      British Israelism is the belief that the lost 10 tribes of Israel are found in nations such as Britian and America. The biggest proponents of that ungodly heresy was the infamous Herbert Armstrong and continued today among the so-called Worldwide Church of God.

    • Joseph Martin

      A belated thank you for that awesome post. You gave me plenty to think about. Thanks.

  • David W

    The mythical rapture is not biblical. A protestant nutcase fabricated this false teaching in the 19th century.

  • “Does this mean you’re going to stop predicting the end if this prediction doesn’t pan out? ”

    NO. Making prophecy or predicting political outcome are separate things. See geopolitics.

  • NCHokie02

    In fairness to Walid, he has stated many times that he can be wrong and that he is not saying things are definitely this or that but that things are lining up according to prophecy. I don’t think he predicts, he just interprets biblical prophecy and looks to links as to what’s going on in the modern day.
    Walid constantly says to “keep your lamps full” in preparation. He has never said, at least that I have read, that this event or that event is it. He just states the way things in the world are trending and to be prepared. As the bible instructs us to be prepared because the second coming will come like a thief in the night.
    On another note, your faith should not be injured by Walid’s predictions. Your faith should be in Jesus Christ and his Church. Whether or not Walid is right on something has no bearing on your faith. That is solely between you and God.
