How a win becomes a loss.

Israel will stay put! And when forced again to defend itself, this small nation will defend herself. But this time, Israel will absorb a terrible beating. From a double tongued Muslim maybe from Turkey, who will double talk Israel into signing a peace covenant. But Israel will survive because it’s a promise from God Almighty.

The devoted people of Psalms 65:4, understand this deceiver of John’s revelation to be God’s Antichrist as portrayed in Revelation 13:1;3. Paul called him a thief in the night. And warned, for when they say, “Peace and safety! Then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And, they shall not escape,” 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3.

The tale of the fig tree is one of the center pieces of modern world history for understanding world events. Daniel wants us to focus on that fig tree by giving us this account, “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (each week equals 1 year totaling 7 years), but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to the sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even the consumption which is determined, is poured out on the desolate,” Daniel 9:27. That account is really about Israels third temple. Because those temples are the road signs of God’s intentions, as the maker of the only history that really matters. So what does that tell us? Follow that history, so one can understand world events before they happen. Because it’ll take one to histories grand finale which will not occur until the third temple is built and destroyed.

This padre often refers to God as the mysterious one because he’s not always explicit when pronouncing his revelations. But his mysteriousness is discoverable because he talks to us through his privileged ones like Daniel. The phrase, “He shall bring an end to the sacrifice and offering,” is key to earth’s tumultuous end. These temples were to give testimony to the greatness of God and were exquisitely built. It took King Solomon twenty years to accomplish its building. All this is important because it helps us understand Israels horrific defeat. By a coalition of nations and the times surrounding histories curious fig tree. By nations, suspected to be governments who make up the League of Arab nations. Led by Russia, king of the North. That doesn’t mean that it’ll be the atheistic Russia we know today. Russia has its own Muslim community to deal with. And it may well be that Gog and Magog from the North may well be an emerging Islamic empire, yet to be born. Want to know what the future holds? Keep your focus on that stuff. Because, it’s tied to the tale of the fig tree.

How about Pope Francis’ historic gathering on, 08 June 2014, on Pentecostal Sunday which commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples. Chosen by Francis, perhaps to highlight himself as the broker of peace for the Middle East and beyond. Suggesting as he stood before the world that he’s God incarnate in the flesh, and as such, the spirit filled emissary for these troubled times and beyond. Could Francis be the beast of Revelation 13:1;3? Pay close attention to his papacy.

On that day gathered with him were the now deceased Israeli President Shimon Peres, a figure of no importance, as his office is mostly ceremonial.

Absent from Satan’s nest was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, head of the Israeli government. Shunned by Francis, no doubt because he has urged the world to ignore Mahmoud Abbas’ new unity Palestinian government which took office a week earlier, 01 June 2014. Because Netanyahu, no doubt understood that Abbas was the puppet of the puppeteering anti-Israeli Hamas group calling for Israels complete annihilation.

Unveiling Pope Francis’ gala as an instrument to humiliate and isolate Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as having his shoes on the wrong foot. Not so, as his right foot is anchored correctly into his right shoe. It’s the Pope whose got his shoes and feet screwed up. And eventually the papacy will be no more, but Israel will be.

Prime Minister Netanyahu stood alone, on the secular world scene, as the E.U. and the U.S. stood in solidarity with Abbas’ unity government. But did, he stand alone? Yes, from the community of nations perspective. For, emeritus Obama, it served as another betrayal by his presidency of Israel. Which as they accumulate, will cause America to be annihilated, note, Jeremiah 50:42; 51:33. The U.S. is the daughter of Babylon; more details, 20 June 2014, “How diplomacy fails in the Middle East.

To be continued tomorrow. Having asked the question, did P.M. Netanyahu really stand alone? The answer for understanding such a perspective requires a spirituality steeped in the mind of Christ.

One last thought about Francis’ historic Sunday. It’s a grand hoax to get Israel to do what God has forbidden. Recorded in Exodus 23:32-33, “You shall make no covenant with them, nor their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against me. For if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.” To do so will trigger, Daniel 9:27, as aforementioned.

Followed by a warning from King Hezekiah from Jerusalem itself, Isaiah 36:5-6, I say, “You speak of having plans and power for war; but they are mere words. Now in whom do you trust, that you rebel against me? Look! You are trusting in the staff of this broken reed, Egypt on which a man leans, it will go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust him.” Egypt is symbolic for the community of nations. The United States is Americas Egypt. And pharaoh, is symbolic for world leaders. Emeritus President Obama served as Americas pharaoh.

Also at that historic gathering was Palestinian President Mahmound Abbas and the Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartolomew coming to the Vatican for a time of prayer. With Francis planting the kiss of death on the cheeks of both presidents before a world wide audience. Because all that quartet will accomplish, whether by appearance or prayer. Amounts to a public relations stunt and then heightened by various sorts of praying. Amounting to chatter that will result in nothing more than showmanship.

What was really significant about the days events was the planting of an olive tree by the four men. Because the olive tree for Israel, and thus the world, is symbolic of Israels near destruction, after which will come peace on earth. The peace is pictured in Micah 4:4, “But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree. And no one shall make him afraid; for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken. Jesus gave this picturesque account for the timing of such peace in Matthew 24:32-34. Which is really about the end of the world as we know it, then Micah 4:4 will kick in.

If you want to know the prophetic history of the fig tree, the two previous discussions are available. They provide significant historical teachings, as to our troublesome times.
