I Do Hereby Declare That The United States Recognizes Jerusalem As The Capital Of Israel’ Proclaims President Trump

by Geoffrey Grider December 6, 2017

President Trump orders the US Embassy to be moved and proclaims Jerusalem as the capital of Israel

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.” Joel 2:32 (KJV)

President Trump made good on his promises to Israel. With one fell swoop, US President Donald J. Trump declared that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state of Israel, and that he is putting in place beginning immediately the move of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“With today’s action I reaffirm my administration’s commitment to peace in the region”, Trump said. “Today we call for calm, moderation and for the voices of tolerance to prevail over the voice of hate”.

What the president did not say was whether or not all of Jerusalem would be considered as Israel’s capital, which could be a huge sticking point in the near future. The mythical Palestinians claim the Old City area with the Temple Mount as their capital. Still, Trump today did something that no other president in our lifetime can claim, reaffirming dramatically the unbreakable bond between the United States and Israel.

Palestinians burned a poster of Trump during a protest in Bethlehem, West Bank, on Tuesday in anticipation of the announcement

Appearing in the White House’s Diplomatic Reception Room against an elaborate backdrop of Christmas decorations, He also said the United States embassy in Israel would, over time, be moved there from Tel Aviv.

Hailing Trump, Jerusalem Projects US Flag Onto Old City Walls:

Israel is the only country where the United States has an embassy in a city that the host nation does not consider its capital.

‘I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,’ Trump said. ‘While previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Today I am delivering.’

The White House issued the following proclamation:

PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP’S PROCLAMATION ON JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITAL OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL“My announcement today marks the beginning of a new approach to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.” – President Donald J. Trump

RECOGNIZING JERUSALEM: President Donald J. Trump is following through on his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and has instructed the State Department to begin to relocate the U.S. Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

  • Today, December 6, 2017, President Trump recognized Jerusalem, the ancient capital of the Jewish people, as the capital of the State of Israel.
    • In taking this action, President Trump fulfilled a major campaign promise of his and many previous Presidential candidates.
  • The Trump Administration is fully coordinated in supporting this historic action by the President, and has engaged broadly with both our Congressional and international partners on this issue.
    • President Trump’s action enjoys broad, bipartisan support in Congress, including as expressed in the Jerusalem Recognition Act of 1995.  This Act was reaffirmed by a unanimous vote of the Senate only six months ago.
  • President Trump has instructed the State Department to develop a plan to relocate the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
  • Departments and Agencies have implemented a robust security plan to ensure the safety of our citizens and assets in the region.

STATUS OF JERUSALEM: President Trump recognizes that specific boundaries of sovereignty in Jerusalem is highly sensitive and subject to final status negotiations.

  • President Trump recognizes that the status of Jerusalem is a highly-sensitive issue, but he does not think the peace process is aided by ignoring the simple truth that Jerusalem is home to Israel’s legislature, supreme court, President, and Prime Minister.
  • President Trump recognizes that the specific boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem are subject to final status negotiations between the parties.
  • President Trump reaffirms United States support for the status quo at the Temple Mount, also known as Haram al Sharif.

COMMITTED TO THE PEACE PROCESS: President Trump is committed to achieving a lasting peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians.

  • President Trump remains committed to achieving a lasting peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians, and he is optimistic that peace can be achieved.
  • Delaying the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has not helped achieve peace over the past two decades.
  • President Trump is prepared to support a two-state solution to the dispute between the Israelis and Palestinians, if agreed to by the parties

The Frenzy Over Jerusalem Has Begun. Erdogan Threatens Trump “In Five To Ten Days We Will Gather The Muslim World In Istanbul And We Will Deal With The Issue Of Jerusalem”

U.S. President Donald Trump has just informed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in a telephone call that he plans to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. This despite all the threats coming from Turkish President Erdogan including  Mahmoud Abbas who warned Trump that the action will have “dangerous consequences.”

Erdogan lashed on Trump today saying: “Mr. Trump, Jerusalem is a red line for all Muslims” as the crowds jeered.

“We will follow this situation until the end” Erdogan said adding “if this step is taken, in 5 to 10 days we will gather the O.I.C [Organization of Islamic Cooperation] in Istanbul. And this will not be enough. We will gather the whole of the Muslim world in this summit. We will continue our struggle till the end and we will end our relationship with Israel”.

But this is not the first time the issue of Jerusalem has come up. In the past US Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and stating that the US embassy should be moved there. But an inbuilt waiver, which allows the president to temporarily postpone the move on grounds of “national security,” has been repeatedly invoked by successive US presidents, from Bill Clinton to George W. Bush and Barack Obama — meaning the law has never taken effect.

So will Trump simply follow the past and postpone such decision?

It doesn’t seem like it especially after Trump had called Mahmoud Abbas telling him of his decision.

So will we see the Middle East implode as result? At some point in time this will spark “Jerusalem will be a stumbling block to all surrounding nations” (Zechariah 12).

Erdogan is the leader of the O.I.C. Organization of Islamic Cooperation (O.I.C) considered to be the Muslim ‘U.N’ coming second to the United Nations in size and global power.

Erdogan’s use of the OIC as the conduit to dealing with Trump’s decision is no coincidence. In fact it was Israel’s ‘occupation’ of Jerusalem which caused the founding of the OIC in 1969 consisting of 57 member states, the organisation states that it is “the collective voice of the Muslim world”. It was set up as result of the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the Caliphate after World War I which left a vacuum for a pan-Islamic institution. Losing the Six-Day War in 1967 provided the incentive needed where leaders of Muslim nations met in Rabat to establish the OIC on 25 September 1969.

In May this year, Erdogan spoke about the importance of Jerusalem to Muslims around the world and urged more Turks and others to visit the city that “Jerusalem is ‘The first of the two directions of prayer, the second of mosques, the third of sanctuaries’”

This issue will fuel Erdogan to speed up the formation of a Muslim League. We warned last year about Erdogan using Jerusalem to create a Muslim League adding:

“This “league” is a united Muslim states and the O.I.C plays a major role in this affair. Remember the Scriptures: “Cush, and Put, and Lud [Turkey], and all Arabia, and Libya, and the people of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword.” (Ezekiel 30:5)

Don’t say that we never told you so, way ahead of time, that you may consider the state of your spiritual affairs by becoming one of the five virgins with oil in their lamps before the coming of the Bridegroom.”

And a league it is. Just as we stated will happen is happening. Erdogan even traveled all over the Muslim world to create such a league. From Saudi Iranian relations to expressing concern at the stand-off between India and Pakistan on Kashmir, Erdogan offered to get involved in settling many issues to bring this unity together. And now since the issue of Jerusalem is coming up again this will speed the process.

Erdogan now offers the OIC’s references to self-determination as a means to resolving differences not just over Jerusalem, but Qatar, Kashmir and other crises such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, the Palestinian problem, Iraq, Syria, the Kurdish issue, the Tibet, Taiwan all the way to Balochistan.

Erdogan said that the OIC is the answer:

“It (OIC) has its area of influence. It has economic and political strengths, it has a say in global matters and it can contribute to world peace. If something has been approved by all member-states, it should not be criticised or questioned. OIC members also have weight in the United Nations. Turkey supports India to become a permanent member of the UN Security Council.”

President Donald Trump Will Announce Wednesday That The United States Recognizes Jerusalem As The Capital Of Israel

President Trump will first announce that the “United States government recognizes that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel,” according to one of three senior administration officials who spoke with reporters on Tuesday. Second, Trump will direct the State Department to begin the process of moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

by Geoffrey Grider December 5, 2017

President Donald Trump will announce Wednesday that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and that the State Department will begin a process to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” Zechariah 12:9 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: We can now report that President Trump will in fact authorize the move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem on Wednesday, as well as recognize that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. The process of moving the Embassy will take years to complete, as is the case in all Embassy moves. The Muslim world tonight has issued a multitude of threats against Israel should Trump go forward with his stated agenda. We stand on the precipice of prophetic fulfillment, are YOU ready for what comes next?

Trump will first announce that the “United States government recognizes that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel,” according to one of three senior administration officials who spoke with reporters on Tuesday.

The officials conveyed that the change is a recognition of “reality” — both the historic reality that Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people and the Jewish faith since ancient times; and the modern reality that the city is the seat of government for Israel, housing its legislature, supreme court, prime minister, and executive agencies.

Second, Trump will direct the State Department to begin the process of moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. One official explained that the directive to the State Department requires it to develop a plan for this “with a minimum additional burden on taxpayers.” It was noted that there are approximately 1,000 personnel in Tel Aviv, and that it would take some time to find an appropriate site in Jerusalem. One official stated that despite hopes for an immediate move, it was a “practical impossibility to move the embassy tomorrow.”

“It will take some time to find a site, address security concerns, design a new facility, fund a new facility…[and] build it,” said one of the senior officials.

DONALD TRUMP WAS 70 YEARS, 7 MONTHS AND 7 DAYS OLD ON FIRST FULL DAY IN OFFICE AS PRESIDENT

The official went on to address the issue of the semi-annual presidential waiver that has allowed presidents to delay moving the embassy over the past 22 years and several administrations of both parties. The deadline to sign the waiver passed on Monday night; however, the official stated that President Trump will sign a new waiver as the process begins to move the embassy “in order to avoid fairly significant cuts to State Department’s funding that the law requires as a consequence.” One official stated that Trump will sign the waiver each six months until the embassy is opened.

Officials emphasized that the President would not specify a timeline for completing and opening the embassy, and explained that it would take years, not months.

When later pressed on a timeframe, one official said that he expected it would take no less than three to four years, as other U.S. embassies have taken at least that long to move. One remarked that the ongoing relocation of the U.S. embassy in London took eight years.

Pressed on whether the embassy would be moved within Trump’s current presidential term so that a potential subsequent administration could not overturn Trump’s decision, one official replied, “As a practical matter, no embassy is constructed today anywhere in the world in shorter than three to four years. No embassy.”

The official dismissed the possibility that a subsequent president could reverse the decision, adding that updates would be provided on progress toward planning, funding, and building a new embassy.

One read a statement declaring that Trump is fulfilling a major campaign promise by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He added that a number of previous presidential candidates had made the same promise but had declined to fulfill it. The official further stated that the move has broad bipartisan support in Congress, with the legislative body voting for the Jerusalem Embassy Act in 10 successive congresses. The Act was first passed in 1995.

In response to questions about whether Trump’s decision would set back negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, an official said: “Delaying the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has done nothing to achieve peace for more than two decades.”

HOW DONALD TRUMP MOVING THE U.S. EMBASSY FROM TEL AVIV TO JERUSALEM COULD TRIGGER THE PSALM 83 WAR

Officials were also at pains to emphasize that no other issue would be affected by the new policy. Trump is “prepared to support a two-state solution to the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians if agreed to by the two parties,” the official stated. “President Trump also recognizes the specific boundaries in Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem are subject to final status negotiations of such an agreement.”

“President Trump reaffirms support for the status quo at the Temple Mount, Haram esh-Sharif,” the official continued.

The decision-making process had involved the President, the Cabinet and department principals. “This was a collaborative U.S. government position,” said one official later, in response to reporters’ questions.

Reporters were also told that “departments and agencies have developed a robust security plan” to ensure the safety of U.S. citizens and assets in case of violent protests against Trump’s decisions.

One official stated emphatically that President Trump has had “very detailed” discussions with Middle East leaders about his decisions on Jerusalem, and reiterated a strong commitment to peace.

President Trump will make his announcements at 1pm ET from the White House on Wednesday afternoon

As Trump Weighs Jerusalem Decision, 151 UN Member Nations Vote To Disavow Israeli Ties To Capital

The United Nations resolution came as the Trump Administration was rumored to be actively considering relocating its embassy to Jerusalem. “The president has said that he has given serious consideration to the matter, and we’re looking at it with great care,” US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.

by Geoffrey Grider December 2, 2017

 

The resolution stated that “any actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem are illegal and therefore null and void and have no validity whatsoever.”

“For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.” Zechariah 14:2 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Bible says that in the time of Jacob’s trouble, all the nations of the world follow Antichrist and come against Israel in a military strike at the Battle of Armageddon. The UN vote yesterday to deny Israel any right to be connected to its historic capital city of Jerusalem is a small foretaste of what’s coming in the near future. Why all the fuss over tiny little Jerusalem? Because the Bible says that Jerusalem is the “city of the great King”, Jesus Christ, and the Devil says that he will take it instead. Armageddon is fought over who has rights to it. And in a great ironic twist, Zechariah states that God will “gather all nations” to battle against Jerusalem, right? What is the UN but the “gathering of all nations”? Now you know the guaranteed future of the United Nations, as prophesied in your King James Bible.

The UN General Assembly voted overwhelmingly to disavow Israeli ties to Jerusalem as part of six anti-Israel resolutions it approved on Thursday in New York. The vote was 151 in favor and six against, with nine abstentions.

The resolution came as the Trump Administration was rumored to be actively considering relocating its embassy to Jerusalem. “The president has said that he has given serious consideration to the matter, and we’re looking at it with great care,” US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.

She added that US President Donald Trump had until December 4th to make a decision on the embassy relocation or waive the matter for another six months.

In New York, only six countries out of 193 UN member states fully supported Israel’s ties Jerusalem: Canada, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, the United States and Israel itself. The nine countries who abstained were: Australia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Honduras, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, South Sudan and Togo.

The resolution stated that “any actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem are illegal and therefore null and void and have no validity whatsoever.”

These words fall in line with similar resolutions approved in 2015 and 2016 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations (UNESCO), including the resolution’s omission of the title “Temple Mount,” using instead only the Arabic term for the site, “Haram al-Sharif.”

The UNGA’s Jerusalem resolution called for “respect for the historic status quo at the holy places of Jerusalem, including the Haram al-Sharif, in word and practice.” But the UNESCO votes are taken in smaller committees or boards and do not have the same representative power as the UNGA to measure the global opinion of UN member states.

The voting patterns of many of Israel’s allies, particularly among the EU nations, also differ in New York. The same countries that oppose or abstain from anti-Israel votes at UNESCO or the UN Human Rights Council often support such texts at the UNGA.

On Thursday, all the EU member states voted against Israel and in favor of the Jerusalem resolution, including countries that abstained or opposed the same text at UNESCO. In a statement to the UNGA after the vote, the EU warned it would change its stance on such texts in the future unless the language was more neutral.

“The EU stresses the need for language on the holy sites of Jerusalem to reflect the importance and historical significance of the holy sites for the three monotheistic religions,” the Estonian representative said on behalf of the EU.

“The future choice of language may effect the EU’s collective support for the resolution,” she added.

Mexico also voted against Israel with regard to the Jerusalem resolution, even though Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had just lauded the country for its support of Israel at the UN. Kenya, which recently hosted Netanyahu, also voted against the resolution with regard to Jerusalem on Thursday.

HOW DONALD TRUMP MOVING THE U.S. EMBASSY FROM TEL AVIV TO JERUSALEM COULD TRIGGER THE PSALM 83 WAR

Israel’s representative at the meeting said the omission of Judaism’s holiest site, the Temple Mount, was deliberate and yet “another instance of the Palestinian refusal to recognize the proven historic connection between Judaism, Christianity and the Temple Mount.”

The US opposed the resolutions. Its representative expressed disappointment that despite supposed support for reform, UN members continued to single out Israel. This year alone, he said, the UN’s bodies have approved 18 resolutions that were biased against Israel.

“This dynamic is unacceptable. It is inappropriate that the UN, an institution founded on the idea that all nations should be treated equally, should be so often used by member states to treat another state so unequally,” he said.

The UNSG on Thursday also approved a second resolution that condemned Israeli settlement activity and called upon it to withdraw to the pre-1967 line. This included leaving the Golan Heights, which Israel seized from Syria during the Six-Day War.

Some 157 nations voted in favor of the text, seven opposed it and eight abstained.

All the European Union’s member states voted to support the resolution. The abstaining countries included: Australia, Cameroon, Fiji, Honduras, Paraguay, Papa, New Guinea, South Sudan and Tongo.

Those nations opposing the resolution were: Canada, Israel, Nauru, Micronesia, Marshal Islands, Solomon Islands and the United States.

Among the six resolutions was one, sponsored by Syria, which condemned Israel’s continued presence on the Golan Heights. It was approved with 105 nations in favor, six against and 58 who abstained.

Israel noted the absurdity of such a resolution at a time when the Syrian regime was using chemical weapons against its own citizens while Israel was treating the wounded of that conflict who managed to cross its borders.

The UN General Assembly is expected to approve another ten anti-Israel resolutions by the end of the year. source

CONFIRMED: North Korea Fires Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Towards Japan Economic Zone

Japan’s Prime Minister’s Office for disaster and crisis management information tweeted shortly after the report: “North Korea launched a missile that has the possibility of arriving in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of our country.”

by Geoffrey Grider November 28, 2017

North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile on Wednesday, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile in its first provocation since U.S. President Donald Trump labeled the country a state sponsor of terrorism earlier this month, Yonhap reported, citing South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The agency didn’t immediately provide more details on the launch. Japan’s coast guard said the missile could fall into the sea near Japan.

North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on Sept. 3, and has launched more than a dozen missiles this year as Kim Jong Un’s regime seeks the capability to hit the continental U.S. with a nuclear weapon. The United Nations has imposed stringent sanctions on North Korea for its weapons tests.

Trump on Nov. 20 labeled North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism because of its threats of nuclear devastation and support of terrorist acts including assassinations on foreign soil. North Korea responded by saying the designation reminds the country it should keep hold of its “precious nuclear sword.”

On Nov. 14, the U.S. wrapped up strike force drills in the Western Pacific using three aircraft carriers — the first such exercise in a decade. North Korea routinely complains about U.S. drills in the region, using them as justification to ratchet up its own weapons program.

The launch ends a lull in test activity by the Kim regime. North Korea’s last provocation was on Sept. 15 when it fired a second missile over Japan in as many months

VP Mike Pence Tells People To Get Ready For President Trump To Move US Embassy To Jerusalem As Promised

US Vice President Mike Pence made the comment in remarks at Israel’s Mission to the United Nations at an event celebrating the 70th anniversary of the United Nations’ vote calling for the establishment of a Jewish state. How’s that for a blockbuster announcement?

by Geoffrey Grider November 28, 2017

President Donald Trump is actively considering “when and how” to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday.

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:2,3 (KJV)

US Vice President Mike Pence made the comment in remarks at Israel’s Mission to the United Nations at an event celebrating the 70th anniversary of the United Nations’ vote calling for the establishment of a Jewish state. How’s that for a blockbuster announcement? (If you’re reading this via email, please click here to watch Pence video.)

This campaign promise of Donald Trump is the reason why I decided to vote for him back when he was a candidate back in 2016. Refresh your memory by watching it here.

The fact that said this at an event commemorating the 70th anniversary of the reestablishment of the nation of Israel is not just perfect timing, to me it seems to be God’s timing. And it is what we here at NTEB have been saying all along. If any big fulfillment of Bible prophecy is going to happen in the foreseeable near future, it will be on or around the 70th anniversary of Israel being back in the land.

On May 14, 2018, Israel will have been officially regathered, in fulfillment of Bible prophecy, for exactly 70 years. In 70 AD, Israel was destroyed by the Romans and the Temple stones toppled to the ground exactly as Jesus said it would happen. When you subtract 70 AD from 2018 AD, where does that leave you? It leaves you square in 1948 AD.

THE TIMING OF THE PRETRIBULATION RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH AS FOUND IN THE SONG OF SOLOMON

What might we expect come the Spring of 2018? Well, the Bible gives many references that the Rapture of the Church will take place in the Springtime. The numbers 7 and 70 refer to the time of Jacob’s trouble, which takes place immediately following the Rapture of the Church.

Am I calling for the Rapture this Spring? No, I am not. But I am telling all Bible believers to keep their spiritual eyes and ears wide open as we get close to April/May of next year. Seeing in the Bible how God has worked in the past, if prophecy is going to be fulfilled in a major way, then something will happen on the 70th anniversary of Israel’s regathering.

“For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” Jeremiah 29:10 (KJV)

Is God preparing to once again visit His people, and start dealing with them again? Maybe so, but if so, He will have to remove the Church first. That’s what my ‘rightly divided’ Bible tells me.

AS THEIR 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF BEING REGATHERED APPROACHES, IS THE LORD PREPARING TO VISIT ISRAEL?

Are you ready for what comes next?

Turkey’s President Erdogan And U.S. President Donald Trump Are Currently Negotiating ‘Peace Deals’ For The Entire Middle East Giving Turkey The Lead To Soon Control The Entire Region And Revive The Ottoman Empire

The wise are always on the lookout when things seem hunky-dory and they rest when people worry about ‘rumors of wars’. The fool however, is alarmed when there are “rumors of wars” and sleeps in a time when false peace deals are being made.

This is exactly the type of times we live in. The Bible says of the Antichrist that “By peace” he will deceive” and “destroy many” (Daniel 8:25).

And now we have President Donald Trump declaring that President Erdogan of Turkey will be the man who will bring such peace to the Middle East. Things are moving faster than we expected.

“Will be speaking to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey this morning about bringing peace to the mess that I inherited in the Middle East. I will get it all done, but what a mistake, in lives and dollars (6 trillion), to be there in the first place!” Trump tweeted.

Where every U.S. president failed (to bring peace to the Middle East) Trump believes he can pull it off by making deals with the devil Erdogan.

Sultan Erdogan is the man who not only aided in the creation of ISIS but is the man reviving the Ottoman Empire.

And who is also added in this mix to bring about peace? Iran. Erdogan working along with Iran’s leadership are supposedly finding a “political settlement” to stop the bloodshed in the Middle East. So Turkey creates ISIS, bring bloodshed, then put back ISIS in circulation as “rebels” while destroying Syria is some grand plan for peace.

The very Iran that tricked the U.S. to enter Iraq and convert it to be under Shiite control now has Sufi Muslim Turkey tricking the U.S. (again) to clear the runway for both regional superpowers (Iran and Turkey, Shiite/Sufi)) to set the stage for the rise of both Sunni and Shiite crescents.

This is not unusual considering U.S. history that from time immemorial, the U.S. has supported the Ottoman Muslims to the point of throwing Christianity out the window. Last year I warned:

“Most are unaware, that the United States, John Adams to cozy up to the Ottomans declared in the Treaty of Tripoli: “the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”

If this fulfillment is to repeat and as we see the United States today still cozy up to Turkey, this will repeat including the famine.”

American politicians will say anything to make deals. Can we imagine Saudi Arabia ever saying that it is “not founded on Islam”?

And a year before that in 2015 I warned “The American Military Has Been Fighting And Dying All This Time To Advance The Caliphate Agenda”.

How many Americans died in Iraq? And for what?

Was it only “President Obama” and “Hillary Clinton” who made deals with Islam? From John Adams (to John Bolton), presidents change, foreign policy never changes. Presidents have little control over foreign policy.

As we said in the past, the U.S. is subbing its role in the Middle East and handing the entire region to be supervised by Turkey.

So what will this deal look like? Turkey made a deal with Qatar to allow Turkish troops on its soil. This is also the case in Africa. Indeed, with Turkey taking the lead to ‘establish peace’ and change “set times and set laws” throughout the Middle East, it will give the Gog of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan success. He has established himself permanently by concocting the Ergenekon Conspiracy, and another supposed coup to thwart the Generals and the judges. Turkey will soon end what the United Kingdom and France through Sykes Picot did to redraw the boundaries of Al-Mashriq Al-Arabi — the Arab lands to the east of Egypt. To keep the Ottomans suppressed these nations created the fractious states we see today. By undoing this, the dream of putting back the Ottoman Humpty Dumpty looks closer than ever. This time Iran and Turkey will “consume much flesh” (lands).

Even as back as 2013 we predicted:

With the end of Arab Nationalism, we have a void to be filled with the Turkish Model; that model is ‘moderate Islam’. The fall of Arab Nationalism will cause the Arab world to be looking for a protector and a guard – “be a guard unto them”. (Ezekiel 38:7)

So whats the point of sending American sons and daughters to serve and die in the Middle East so that bastard politicians offer them on the altar of compromise, so that whatever American blood liberates, is handed over to Turkey that wants to create a sultanate for Turkey and a Persian Empire for Iran. Heck, Trump even ignored Turkey’s latest crimes by Turkish security forces against US citizens in Washington DC. A US grand jury indicted 15 Turkish security officials in August for beating up American protesters by Erdogan’s security personnel during Erdogan’s visit to Washington in May. Erdogan has called the indictment “undemocratic” and said it was not binding for Ankara.

Is peace now a “binding agreement” by Erdogan? Is Trump the “predicted King Cyrus”? Hello? Anyone?

There Have Been 698 Earthquakes In California Within The Past 30 Days

By Michael Snyder, on November 26th, 2017

Why is the west coast shaking so violently?  According to the latest data from Earthquake Track, there have been 698 earthquakes in California within the past 30 days.  By the time that you read this article, that number will undoubtedly have changed.  In recent days I have felt such an urgency to write about the seismic activity on the west coast, and I am quite concerned that so few people seem to be paying attention to what is happening.

As I have covered previously, scientists tell us that when seismic activity begins to escalate the probability of having a major earthquake jumps significantly.  Over the past month there have been more mainstream news articles about earthquake swarms in California than I have seen in years, and the magnitude 4.6 earthquake that rattled Monterey County earlier this month made headlines all over the world.

And it isn’t just the U.S. section of the “Ring of Fire” that seems to be awakening.  I have written about Mt. Popocatepetl down in Mexico several times recently, and on Friday it erupted three more times

Spectacular eruptions have been seen Southeast of Mexico City as Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano spewed smoke and ash high into the air.

The volcano had three eruptions Friday, one of which reached two and a half miles into the sky.

The first explosion occurred at about 5:00 p.m. local time.

Two more explosions overnight spread ash over the villages and fields south of the volcano.

I cannot stress enough how potentially dangerous this situation could become.  In ancient times, Mt. Popocatepetl completely covered entire Aztec cities with massive amounts of super-heated mud.  Scientists assure us that someday Mt. Popocatepetl will once again erupt in a similar fashion, and the devastation that this will cause will be off the charts.

Meanwhile, an extremely dangerous volcano on the other side of the Ring of Fire is also rapidly coming to life.  When Mount Agung violently erupted in 1963, more than a thousand people were killed, and authorities are extremely concerned about the eruptions that are happening right now

Volcanic eruptions on the Indonesian resort island of Bali have prompted officials to cancel flights and move about 24,000 residents out of the way as a thick ash cloud from Mount Agung, thousands of meters high, drifts east and southeast along the archipelago.

Residents were evacuated from 224 points around the island while Lombok International Airport on Pulau Lombok, the island due east of Bali, has closed temporarily, said Ari Ahsan, spokesman for Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali.

Over the weekend we witnessed eruption after eruption, and the column of ash coming from the volcano is now more than 4 miles high

The first eruption came around 5:30 p.m. local time (4:30 a.m. ET) Saturday, Bali’s Regional Disaster Management Agency said. More eruptions followed and continued into Sunday, with a “medium-pressure eruption” in the early evening that sent ash 2,000 meters into the air, the agency said.
By late Saturday, the volcanic ash plume had reached an altitude of 7,600 meters (4.7 miles), according to Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology.

But what is troubling authorities more than anything else is the fact that magma has been “detected close to the volcano’s surface”

It told people within a 7.5km exclusion zone to “immediately evacuate” in an “orderly and calm manner”

Magma – molten rock – has now been detected close to the volcano’s surface, said officials and volcanologists.

I know that the mainstream media is endlessly obsessed with covering the controversies surrounding President Trump, but to me all of this seismic activity that we are seeing along the Ring of Fire is the biggest news story in the entire world at the moment.

I am convinced that what we are witnessing is quite unusual.  All over the planet “dead volcanoes” are coming back to life, and major fault lines are being hit by a seemingly endless barrage of small to mid-size earthquakes.

Is it possible that all of this shaking is leading up to something?

Stay tuned, because I believe that what we have seen so far is only just the beginning…

The Devil is in the Details….

November 20, 2017 / lamarzulli

Hip Hop star Jay-Z has blasted traditional Christian values in an epic rant where he claims to be part of an exclusive club of “smart people” who worships “our true lord; Satan.”The billionaire rapper has also claimed that “God created Lucifer to be the bearer of truth and light,” and that “Jesus never existed” but was merely a “tool created by smart people to control dumb people.”During a backstage tirade at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on Friday, Jay-Z pointed around the room saying, “ya’ll being played.” “There ain’t no Jesus.”Ya’ll slaves to a fake religion.”Do you think I got where I am praying to a guy that don’t exist?”No. I found the guys who invented that guy and I joined the club.”Then I worked my way to the top.”I earned my new form of humanity and maturity when I fully embraced my older brother, Satan.”

Commentary & Analysis by L. A. Marzulli

The Devil is in the details and Jay – Z is letting us know all about them with great specificity.

For those of us who have been following the Satanic underpinnings of both the movie and music industry, Jay-Z ‘s rant is very telling.  Here’s what he stated recently. Judge for yourself…

During a backstage tirade at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on Friday, Jay-Z pointed around the room saying, “ya’ll being played.” “There ain’t no Jesus.”Ya’ll slaves to a fake religion.”Do you think I got where I am praying to a guy that don’t exist?”No. I found the guys who invented that guy and I joined the club.”Then I worked my way to the top.”I earned my new form of humanity and maturity when I fully embraced my older brother, Satan.”

There are others who are part of the Satanic Cabal. Think of Katy Perry who held her hands up proudly displaying the Baphomet sign while flicking her tongue out like a snake. She was also wearing “devil-horns” while ACDC played, We’re on the Highway to Hell! (Look at her eyes and haughty expression)Who could forget Perry riding a BEAST during her “performance” at the Super Bowl.

Then there’s Lady Ga-Ga who recently stated that she wanted out as she realized who it was that made her famous. Why would anyone dress like this?

Madonna, whose openly satanic display in her shows knows no bounds. Here she is at yet another Super Bowl half time show. (Makes you wonder who hires these people?)

Think about it—and I realize that some of you will disagree with this. These half-time show are nothing short of a full-blown occult spectacle and they are being pumped into our homes.

(Caution – Pray up before watching this!!!! If you watch it all!!!)

One of my great frustrations is that the church, for the most part, has blinders on when it comes to exposing this. Most pastors won’t discuss it, thus their congregations sit in ignorance, while the enemy laughs and continues with his agenda.
Pray for Jay-Z and the rest of the crew but shout out a warning to those who will listen. End times? Business as Usual? How far this is from the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show singing: I want to hold your hand?
Expose and crush the works of darkness. Realize this. (This is not to imply that Jay-Z and the other “singers,” who are mentioned in this post, participate in any of these activities or rituals…)
1.       There are dark forces at work throughout the music and movie industry. Some of this is coming out now!
2.       There is connection to Pedophilia.
3.       Human sacrifice is part of it. (Not all participate in this)
4.       The satanic connection reaches to the highest echelons in the governments of the world. (Think Bohemian Grove)
5.       Human trafficking is directly connected to it.
6.       Where do we think all the missing children go?
7.       The Satanic underpinnings are everywhere as there is a coven in the town where you are right now and they are part of the underground.
8.       Think of all the movies that promulgate the worship of Satan, either directly or indirectly. Rosemary’s baby

Bank of America: Flash Crash in 2018, War to Follow

November 21, 2017

In its analysis for the first half of 2018, Bank of America is warning investors of a “flash crash” the likes of 1987, 1994, 1998. And  it warns that the central bank policies that have created the current conditions can’t be reversed, leading to an inevitable war to follow the crash.

In 1987, known as “Black Monday,” global stock markets lost huge portions of their valuations, ranging from 60 percent in New Zealand to 23 percent in the U.S. In 1994, the Great Bond Massacre saw global bond markets collapse, starting in the U.S. and Japan, resulting in treasury rates skyrocketing through the first nine months of the year.

In 1998, the Dow Jones Industrial Average saw its greatest single-day point loss of 512 points. The collapse was brought on by major financial crises involving the “emerging markets” in Russia, Thailand, and Poland.

The bearish outlook is based on large part because the investment script has been flipped from beginning to end of 2017. Going into the new year, the markets will be “positioning now long, not short; profit expectations high, not low; policy close to max stimulus; peak positioning, peak profits, peak policy stimulus means peak asset returns in 2018.”

The report strongly suggests the “tech bubble” is about to burst, if not in 2018, then early in 2019. It also hints at the very strong possibility of civil war, possibly boiling over into a global war, as a result of the very policies that have gotten us where we’re at.

The analysis strongly recommends buying gold now.
