Resumption of Tragedy

| fri, july 19, 2013 |

Though I have not posted much over the past several months, I have continued to keep a watchful eye on the increasingly volatile borders surrounding Israel as well as the continued US led "peace" initiative, driven by Secretary of State John Kerry.

Over the course of the past few months I have observed troubling remarks, stances, and agendas from all parties involved in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict as well as the continued bloodshed in Syria and now Egypt, with varying degrees of unrest throughout the rest of the Middle East. Lately it would seem that even a new "follower of Yeshua" still somewhat unfamiliar with discernment and Holy Ghost leading recognizes the lateness of the hour, pregnant with prophetic pangs.

Today, I have felt the need to break my own personal silence. I feel that two events taking place today may very well indicate a broader period of intense unrest here in the United States of America.

I present the following for prayerful consideration.

Today, it was announced by Secretary of State John Kerry that the US led peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians would resume. As I have noted, along with many others, anytime the US is involved in talks to divide Eretz Yisrael (land of Israel), a period of instability coincides. Natural disasters, economic disasters, social unrest, political fallout, etc. always increases during such periods.

It is also of great concern to me that this announcement today is the unholy fruit of a trip which began on Tisha B'Av, or also known as the 9th of Av, a period of time historically associated with tragedy for the Jews. Kerry left Washington, D.C., for the Middle East on the afternoon of July 15, hours after the fast of Tisha B'Av had begun in Jerusalem. I believe this is a clear sign from the LORD of Hosts.

This announcement came out around the same time President Obama made a surprise appearance before the White House Press Corp. I will not delve into the case of George Zimmerman, nor will I give my opinion regarding the chain of events that led to the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, but I will say that I strongly feel the President fanned the flames fueling the debate. In the past, when the US has attempted to divide the land of Israel, the LORD will send a judgment or warning within hours; often times these events will touch one another as headlines. Today, Kerry announces the resumption of peace talks as Obama announces his feelings and own personal experiences with "racial profiling," at a time when many groups are planning protests in at least one hundred cities over the weekend.

I believe that we may see civil unrest in this nation unlike any time before and it could begin as soon as this weekend.

 I would like to share some other quick notes.

This year a lunar eclipse will take place on October 18. The last two previous times a lunar eclipse took place on October 18, was in 1967 and 1948. These are two key years: one is the year Israel was resurrected, and the other Israel recaptured Jerusalem.

October 18, 2011, was the 20-year anniversary of the US-led "peace talks," as well as the release of the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who had been a captive of Hamas for 1,941 days. Just 70 days before Gilad Shalit's release was August 9, 2011, or the 9th of Av, a date that just 70 years before was the 9th of Av in 1941, the year notoriously connected to the implementation of the Final Solution, which mercilessly slaughtered about six million Jewish men, women, and children. The 9th of Av of 2011, was 1,941 years after the destruction of the 2nd Temple in 70 AD. It would seem that the LORD was giving a clear sign in 2011 of a future 9th of Av.

October 18, 2011, was 70 days after the 9th of Av. This year 70 days after the 9th of Av will be September 24, exactly two years to the day that President Obama called for the creation of a Palestinian State during his UN General Assembly speech. July 16, 2013, or the 9th of Av, is exactly 42 weeks after President Obama's UN General Assembly Speech of September 25, 2012, in which he echoed the previous year's call for the creation of a Palestinian State. The number 42 is often associated with the anti-Christ and or Tribulation.

Interestingly enough, July 16, 2013, or 7-16-2013, is exactly 7 weeks 16 days after the symbolic UN vote for Palestine that took place on November 29, 2012. This vote came 65 years to the day after the UN voted to recognize Israel in 1947. The heavens seem to also mark the event, as the night prior to both votes a faint lunar eclipse took place. Only two of these eclipses have taken place in the past 243 years: one on November 28, 1947, and then again on November 28, 2012. I believe the LORD is giving us a clear sign.

It is also worth noting, that President Obama has made two public statements about Trayvon Martin and the events surrounding his death. Once was on March 23, 2012, exactly one year to the day before he returned to the US from his first presidential trip to Israel, and the second time came today on July 19, 2013, the same day John Kerry announced the resumption of peace talks.  I can't help but wonder if this is a sign of coming civil unrest connected to this administration's feverish attempt to divide the land of Yeshua HaMashiach.

 I will be watching very closely the peace negotiations as well as the events of the next 72-hours.

God Bless, daniel
