Paving the Way for Daniels Prophecy?

In light of recent events, one must ask yourself if we are heading into the fullfilment of Daniels prophecies?

In an Israel Today article, titled :Kerry’s Peace Plan: Divide Jerusalem, Recognize Jewish State,  a New York Times columnist, named Thomas Friedman, who has close ties to the Obama Administration, said that the American Secretary of State John Kerry is about to present a firm (forceful?) American proposal for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

The Obama plan sees Israel withdrawing from Judea and Samaria in stages. Large Jewish settlements would be left intact and under Israeli sovereignty, and Israel would compensate by surrendering some of its territory to the Palestinian Authority. Jerusalem would be divided, and the eastern half recognized as the capital of “Palestine.” Speaking of recognition, Israel would be explicitly acknowledged as the nation state of the Jewish people. There would be no mass return of Palestinian refugees into Israel.

Israel in Prophecy has not been silent regarding the possible identity of Obama as the End of Days Tyrant whom the Jews call Armilus and the Christians call Antichrist, the Man of Sin. We have dedicated various articles to this topic and remain convinced that he is the end of days despot foretold in Daniel. This monster is destined to make a peace treaty with Israel which will catapult us into a world of calamity and despair. This  treaty according to a careful reading of Daniel suggests that the so called Peace Treaty is actually forced upon Israel, which is exactly what is occurring now.

With recent saber rattling by Russia and the back-stabbing deal the US made with Iran, some believe that this could lead to the Biblical prophecy of Gog U Magog of Ezekiel.

And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog [the Russian Federation]…and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will…bring thee forth, and all thine army…. Persia [ancient kingdom of Iran], Ethiopia, and Libya with them.” (Ezekiel 38:1–5)

Although Gog  invasion  goes wrong for Iran, Russia, and their confederates (see Ezekiel 38:21), one cannot read this prophecy  and fail to reflect upon the events of recent days involving Iran and its leaders, Russia and its leaders, and the current push by the president of the United States to force Israel into a false peace with the Palestinians, all the while while secretly negotiating a nuclear agreement with Iran (made public in late 2013).

The Obama regime, with Secretary of State John Kerry in the lead, joined with the international community in making an agreement with the Iranian regime that many view as a betrayal of Israel.

 Israeli PM  Netanyahu saw through these Machiavellian machinations, and harshly condemned the nuclear deal with Iran as a massive failure of [United States] foreign policy. “What was reached last night in Geneva is not a historic agreement, it is a historic mistake,” he said, before including: “Today the world became a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world made a significant step in obtaining the most dangerous weapons in the world.”

We should not fail to take into account HaShem’s promise of safety for the Jewish nation mentioned in various places in the Tanakh. We should also know that while the Obama regime is trying to force this treaty on Israel, the Jewish people have powerful memories of those who have promised to exterminate them – Haman in the Book of Hadassah (Ester) the arch villian in ancient Persia, Nazi Germany in the past and  Iran (Persia) today. Survival by any means necessary pervades their hearts at this stage in history.

Because of this resolve, some believe, just as in the days of Haman, Obama’s fait accompli (something that has happened and cannot be undone – just like the Persian law which condemned the Jewish captives) regarding  conspiratorial deals with Israel’s enemies could result literally  overnight in the war  in Ezekiel.

In a speech before  the  68th Session of the United Nations (2013), Prime Minister Netanyahu himself affirmed:

In our time the Biblical prophecies are being realized. As the prophet Amos said, they shall rebuild ruined cities and inhabit them. They shall plant vineyards and drink their wine. They shall till gardens and eat their fruit. And I will plant them upon their soil never to be uprooted again.

The stage is being set, the players are taking there positions. Will the Gog U Magog war ignite in our days? Only Hashem is in control of all the game pieces. Only He knows the outcome of these events.



 

The Distant Beat of an Ominous War Drum – Part 1

The Land of MagogWith the events of the last few weeks focusing upon Prime Minister Netanyahu’s visit to the US and his historic speech to the United States Congress, few people know about the build-up in tensions between Pakistan and the US.  China has given the USA and ultimatum which has send tremors rippling through the political climate of Central Asia and the West.  It appears Pakistan is enlisting the aid of China to guard itself against the US/India alliance.  Pakistan is concerned that the US is preparing for the possibility of taking control of their nuclear forces.

In 2010, international media reports revealed that more than 11,000 Chinese troops have been stationed in Gilgit Baltistan, an ethnically different region in Pakistan that had traditionally been part of Jammu & Kashmir. Chinese military engineers have previously helped Pakistan, but this time the Chinese soldiers are building concrete residential houses and are opening branches of Chinese banks.

In 2011, it was revealed that the presence of the Chinese troops is not limited within Gilgit Baltistan but they have moved into Pakistani Kashmir along India.

In May 2011, Indian intelligence agencies reported that they have “credible evidence” that Chinese troops are also based in the Pakistani side of Jammu & Kashmir, which is divided by the Line of Control (LoC) between Pakistan and India.

Is There a Link Between China and the Gog Magog War(s)?

In the Tanakh, China is called – Sin.  It’s gematria is 120 (not using the sofit form of the Nun).  China has a long standing relationship with the Islamic Republic of Iran.  China has been helping them since the 1980’s with their nuclear program under the supposed umbrella of peaceful usage.  Iran’s president, Ahmadinejad  also has a gematria value of 120.   In Gematria Ketana, the zero is dropped making it the value of 12, which is the gematria of GOG.  In Daniel 7:25 it states that an evil leader (Armelius) will arise to harass and dominate Israel for a time, times and half a times or 3 1/2 years (US President Obama is a good candidate).  The word time in the last day prophecy is and also equals 120 (12).

Kesses HaSofer writes that the Mongols are identified with the land of Magog, a descendant of Japheth, the first born of Noah. HaSofer also cites Arab writers who refer to the

The Land of Magog

The Land of Magog

Great Wall of China as Al-Magog.  Magog in Cantonese is used to refer to America oddly enough.

Some identify Magog with Kermania (Germania).  Rabbi Yehi’el Tzvi Hirshenzon זצ”ל,book  named “Seven Wisdoms” (1883, שבע חוכמות), states that Magog or the land of Kermania is south east of Babylon, and you can find it in the map of the Greek Rulers, in the south of Kermania Desert to the east of the tongue of the Persian Sea. One must not confuse the Persian Germania with the European Germania that the Talmud refers to as Edom’s Germania.

So the land that our Sages called “Germania is Persian land in the area of the Persian Gulf, that swallows an area called  “Baludshistan”, and that land is bordering in the east with the Indus River, and in the north with the Himalayas. In today’s Iran there is a big province called Kerman, with population of over two million people. The capital of the province is also called by this name, and today more than 400,000 people live there. This province, Kerman, that was probably the original land of Magog, includes many archaeological cities, that their timings matches more or less the period of the end of The Biblical Flood.

The region named Baluchistan is actually divided today between three countries: Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. In western Pakistan there’s also a province names Baluchistan, next to the Iranian Baluchistan.

For more information on this intriguing subject see HaShem 1.net who brings many more historical facts to the discussion and is a great find.

China has now aligned itself with Gog and has put boots on the ground in Kashmir and Pakistan.  This situation could become extremely tense very quickly.  Another player in this prophetic scheme, from an Islamic perspective is the Army of the Black Flags coming from Khorusan (Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan) in the hands of the Pashtuns who call themselves Bani Israel and may very well be remnants of the 10 Tribes.
