Friday, April 12, the US raised its nuclear alert status to DEFCON 3, Condition Yellow (out of 5 levels), stating “There are currently no imminent nuclear threats against the United States at this time, however the situation is considered fluid and can change rapidly.”
China has mobilized its military and is massing near the border with North Korea. This step was taken after North Korea placed a mid-range Musudan missile ready to launch on its east coast and its “dedication of more facilities at the Yongbon complex to nuclear weapons work.” According to some sources in Washington, the Chinese military mobilization is not directed at deterring Pyongyang but as support for North Korea’s steps.
The long-standing reassurances that North Korea cannot fit one of its crude nuclear warheads into a long-range missile suddenly grew much less reassuring on Thursday, as the Defense Intelligence Agency told a House Armed Services Committee hearing: “DIA [Defense Intelligence Agency] assesses with moderate confidence the North currently has nuclear weapons capable of delivery by ballistic missiles, however the reliability will be low.”
Additionally, the North Koreans have been sharing advanced missile technology with Iran. Joint Chiefs chairman General Martin Dempsey was reportedly “taken aback” by the revelation of North Korean ballistic nuclear weapons during House Armed Services testimony.
Recently we posted an article on an old Benedictine prophecy regarding the possible devastation of the east coast of the US by two nations, prophetically called a Lion and Tiger, which we think may be Iran – the Lion, and North Korea – the Tiger. We also believe the presence of China could be prophetic.
Chief of Staff Benny Gantz has ordered all IDF units to cancel their traditional Passover breaks so that they can operate in full capacity over the upcoming holiday, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Wednesday.
The implication of the decision is that for the first time in many years, all IDF units will maintain their regular operations and remain on full alert throughout the holiday.
As result of the unexpected decision, thousands of soldiers at various IDF headquarters and bases will have to report for duty as usual in order to allow their units to operate with no interruption.
IDF officials dismissed suggestions that the decision is related to operational circumstances or preparations for military maneuvers. The army said Chief of Staff Gantz made the call after asserting that he does not accept the notion of an army-wide Passover vacation.
However, IDF soldiers who received the news Tuesday could not be convinced that the timing of the decision was arbitrary.
Israel warns neighbors against attempted breaches of its borders during the ‘Global March to Jerusalem’.

As activists are planning to lead a Global March to Jerusalem next Friday, Israel has warned neighboring countries that it would forcefully respond to attempted breaches of its borders.
The Global March to Jerusalem initiative aims at getting over one million Arabs and their supporters to attempt to infiltrate Israel’s borders on March 30th. A spokesman for the march said last week the initiative “demand[s] freedom for Palestine and its capital Jerusalem.”
The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center (ITIC) has presented information that Iran is behind the initiative and openly supports it. The march has also been endorsed by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who was U.S. President Barack Obama’s pastor for 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. Diplomatic sources told the London-based Asharq Alawsat newspaper on Friday that Israel has sent messages to the governments of Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, the Hamas government in Gaza and the Palestinian Authority regarding the planned march.
The report said that in the messages Israel made it clear that anyone who will come near its borders would be considered an infiltrator and the IDF will act against him with full force.
Israel also reportedly demanded that Arab countries not allow an escalation of the tension in the region through marches toward its borders. Channel 10 News, which cited the Asharq Alawsat report, said that the Israeli Foreign Ministry and Prime Minister’s Office refused to comment on the report. Earlier this week, radio host Aaron Klein of WABC radio in New York offered $50,000 to an organizer of the Global March to Jerusalem, if he could name one city in the Middle East, outside of Israel, that has more freedom than Jerusalem. The activist was unable to do so.
Most of our political leaders who are running for President in 2012, Democrat and Republican alike, are drumming up support for a military strike on Iran. These political ‘talking heads’ are suggesting that Iran is an existential threat to Israel and the US and are preparing the public for a war against Iran. Ron Paul says that Iran is not an existential threat to Israel and can handle the Iranians themselves and both Prime Minister Netanyahu and the head of the Mossad agree.
While it is obvious that Iran is a threat to Middle East peace, it is no match for the Israelis and any declarations of an existential threat seem to be coming mainly from the American Military Industrial Complex to expand their failing empire.
This new year according to the holy rabbi’s is a very special year and believed to be a watershed moment in the scheme of the world history with good (and evil) portents of the future. For we Jews, 5772 is the Jewish 2012, a year that many cultures see as pivotal in the affairs of man, time of transformation. It is taught that the dawning of this age of enlightenment will begin in the darkness of spiritual ignorance with dark forces trying to suppress the Light of G-D and seeking to destroy His messenger and servant, Israel. As we celebrate the coronation of the King, let us remember that Rosh Hashana is also a “Yom Din” a day of judgement. The Middle East is on the brink of war, and Israel is in their sights. Iran has begun mass producing cruise missiles and Turkey has become Israel chief nemesis. Turkey is spoken of prominently in End of Days prophecy and could galvanize the Muslim world and bring forth a new Khalifah (Caliphate).
Footsteps of the Messiah
Unknown to many people, there is a very strong connection between the Mayan Wisdom Traditions and the Jewish Traditions. The Mayan 2012 prophecy also parallels the Jewish tradition called, “The Footsteps of the Messiah.” As noted above the Mayan and Hebrew calendars are similar. The Torah Codes connect the phrase ‘end of the redemption’ with the Hebrew equivalent of 2012, which is the Hebrew calendar year of 5772. This combination appears in the Torah text that discusses the keeping of the Torah laws and the fear of heaven. [The Mayan Culture and Judaism by Rabbi Mattityahu Glazerson and Professor Robert Haralick, pg 44 and 46. I highly recommend this book].
In another Torah Code table from the above noted book, shows that the words ‘melech mashiach’ (king messiah) with the years of redemption – 5760, 5766, 5772. The year 5772 (2012) appears next to melech mashiach in a 2 letter EDL skip. Also part of this table are the words Mikdash and Eliyahu. At the top of the table the words ‘im shamo’a tishma bekolo’ (if you will harken to my voice) appear which directly connects Eliyahu (Elijah the prophet) with the appearance of the Messiah from a passage in Sanhedrin 98:1
The phrase time of trouble in Hebrew gematria is 772. The gematria of the phrase time of clarity is also 772. And the gematria for 2012 is also 772. In the book of Jeremiah chapter 30 is the reference to the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. If we are deducing this correctly the time of trouble for the nation of Israel is in 2012, which on the Hebrew calendar begins on Roshashana in 2011, which is this year. The meaning of the gematria can be suggested to indicate that 2012 may be a time of trouble for the wicked who are trying to destroying Israel, but for the righteous, it will be a time of clarity.
