Two global strategists, both advisors to President Obama, call for the United States to break ties with Israel

Listen to Today's Program Play

George Friedman, the publisher of Stratfor, a newsletter on strategic global planning, in his most recent book, "The Next Decade" has called for the Obama administration to have the United States to break ties with its main Middle East ally Israel, and increase its cooperation with the Islamic world especially Iran and Pakistan. Friedman's comments are in concert with a former consultant to President Obama, Tony Cordsman, who argues that the United States strategic alliance with Israel was harming Washington's interests in the Middle East.

Friedman said that Washington has been in a confrontation with the Islamic world, which consists of 1 billion people, and a decline in US support for Israel was vital for what he termed the survival of the United States empire.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Strategic global planners calling for the United States to break ties with Israel will not save the United States empire as they believe but will do the opposite according to Bible prophecy.

George Friedman and Tony Cordsman, both not household names, but major players in United States strategic planning have called for the Obama administration to reorder its foreign policy in the Middle East and begin by breaking ties with Israel, America's long time strategic partner in that region. In essence, both men believe that the United States confrontation with the Moslem world, because of America's war with Al Qaeda, has brought harm to the American empire's ability to survive over the next decade. Friedman, in his recent book "The Next Decade" says that the United States must develop a greater partnership with Iran and Pakistan instead of the Jewish state of Israel.

The ancient Jewish prophets wrote 2500 years ago that God would destroy those Middle East nations that try and eliminate Israel from the face of the earth - that is found in Ezekiel 38 and 39 where both Iran and Pakistan are mentioned in Ezekiel 38:5 as Persia. God told Abraham 4000 years ago in Genesis 12:1-3 that those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed - that principle is still applicable today. Since the United States is not found in Bible prophecy, one can conclude that America will not be a major factor before the return of Jesus Christ to the earth.

If America takes the advice of strategic global planners over the Bible they can be assured that God will deal with them. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

Christians are under attack in the Middle East and are being killed because of their faith

Listen to Today's Program Play

A number of Christian communities and churches in the Middle East have been the target of attacks by radical Islamist terrorists with many of the attacks deadly and scores of Middle Eastern Christians have been killed for no other reason than that they are Christians. These attacks are widespread throughout the Middle East, however the Christian communities in Iraq and Egypt are the main focus of these horrific attacks with both nations reporting that these attacks have taken place against churches during weekly services with many Christian worshipers being killed.

Radical Islamist websites have been circulating lists of churches with instructions on how to attack them with one al Qaeda video calling for the jihadist to blow the church up at a time when they are packed with worshipers.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A campaign to attack the Christian communities and churches in the Middle East by radical Islamists is a page out of Bible prophecy for the end of times.

The Christian communities and churches in both Iraq and Egypt have come under attack by radical Islamists who are calling for the destruction of the cross in their internet communications to followers  of the Muslim faith. The call in videos produced by al Qaeda to blow up churches while they are celebrating special holy days or anytime when the churches are packed with worshipers is evidence of the intense campaign going on by the radical Islamists to destroy the Christian community in the Middle East.

One radical Islamist website has been calling for attacks against the churches in Europe as well with instructions on how to attack the churches. This report is only the tip of the iceberg as it relates to attacks on Christians in the Middle East and around the world.

A study of Bible prophecy reveals that people of faith, those who believe in Jesus Christ, will be under attack with great force during the seven year Tribulation period to come. Revelation 6:9-10 talks about those who will be slain because of their testimony and their love for the Word of God, the Bible. Verse 10 of Revelation 6 says that those who are being killed for their faith will ask God to intervene for their safety because it will be so bad.

The ever increasing attacks on Middle Eastern Christians by radical Islamists is indeed a page out of Bible prophecy that will be fulfilled.

Hamas, in the Gaza Strip, is training women to be suicide bombers

Listen to Today's Program Play

Feminism is alive in the Gaza Strip as the Islamic terror organization Hamas is training women to be suicide bombers and to shoot machine guns to kill Israelis according to a CNN television crew who traveled blindfolded to a secret location to film the women. Female terrorists are not a new phenomenon in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza, but it is rare that a foreign news agency has been allowed to interview them and watch them while they were being trained.

The female terrorists were interviewed while sitting at a table loaded with rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, and explosives and they said they see nothing unusual in fighting alongside men because women also serve in the Zionist army who they want to destroy.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Women who are eager to be trained as suicide bombers by the Islamic terror group Hamas so that they can kill Jews is evidence of the hatred of Jews that will lead to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

A CNN camera crew, taken blindfolded to a secret training camp operated by the Islamic terror organization Hamas was able to document the training of women as suicide bombers with the mission of killing Jews, this evidence of dedication to a cause that will take the life of the young women is also evidence of the hatred that the Islamist terrorists have for the Jewish people. These young women believe that their god Allah has directed them to wipe the Jewish people off the earth one attack at a time.

For most people in our world today this dedication is hard to understand. As a student of Bible prophecy, I have found in the Bible and a study of secular history that for 4000 years the Jewish people have been the target of evil forces who want to eliminate them from the earth. In addition to the study of history, a close study of Bible prophecy says that this hatred driving one people to destroy another people will only intensify in the last days.

Zechariah, and ancient Jewish prophet, foretells of a time when 2 out of every 3 Jews will be killed (Zechariah 13:8). Revelation 12:7-17 reveals that evil angelic creatures will try and eliminate the Jews also. Ezekiel 35:5,10 is a prophecy that tells of the Palestinian people working to kill the Jews.

The Islamic terror organization Hamas training female suicide bombers in Gaza is indeed evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

Middle East archaeologists are hoping to save the ruins of the biblical Tower of Babel

Listen to Today's Program Play

Following the years of devastation under the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein and the ensuing American invasion of Iraq archaeologists are beginning to work on ancient Babylonian sites and hope to save the ruins of the biblical Tower of Babylon and learn how it was built before it crumbled under the weight of confusion.

As a first step, experts are working on a plan to prevent further deterioration of the mud-bricked ruins which were damaged by Saddam's personal building projects.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The meticulous work by archaeologists to preserve the mud-bricked Tower of Babel in Iraq is evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

For several decades, the late Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein worked to restore the site of biblical Babylon which included the mud-bricked building of the Tower of Babel. Since the war torn nation of Iraq is working to restore its country to the glory days of this Middle Eastern state in many areas, they have arranged for archaeologists to work to save the ruins of the ancient biblical site.

The Bible records the destruction of the Tower of Babel when the people of the world at that time who only spoke one language were confronted by a heavenly visitor and the tower was destroyed by the confusion of one language becoming many languages, Genesis 11. This account of Babylon's beginnings found in Genesis 11 is only the start of a significant history for this city. Babylon is where the Jews were held captive for 70 years, II Chronicles 36. Babylon was the city where Alexander the Great became the leader of the known world. Babylon is also the city where the Apostle Peter traveled to start a church to reach that part of the world, I Peter 5:13. Babylon will also be the headquarters for a world economic center and its leader, the Antichrist, Revelation 18. Babylon is the city that will be destroyed in one hour, Revelation 18:10, 17, 19.
This will be a total destruction and forever, Isaiah 13,14, Jeremiah 50, 51, and Revelation 16:17-21.

Archaeologists working to preserve the city of Babylon is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The Sanhedrin, a part of the Israeli Judicial System, is going to put President Obama on Trial

Listen to Today's Program Play

The Sanhedrin, an ancient Jewish court during the times of Jesus Christ, has been re-formed in Israel, and they are recognized by the Israeli judicial systems. The Sanhedrin has decided to bring President Obama to Israel and they have charged the President with criminal acts against Israel.

The Sanhedrin says that the evidence is the Iranian Nuclear Agreement. With more on this story, here is David Dolan.

DAVID DOLAN: "It seems like they are planning to do that Jimmy and as you said the 70 Jewish scholars, the Rabbis that sit on the modern Sanhedrin, it doesn't have the same status in Israel as the ancient Sanhedrin did, it really was Israel's Supreme Court; but as you say over the past few years it's been gaining notoriety and more credence in Israel.

Now of course we have the Iranian Nuclear Deal and the Sanhedrin has put out a statement saying that this is a great danger against the Jewish people, that President Obama is committing "criminal offenses" against the Jewish people by engaging in this Iranian Nuclear Deal; that it is deliberately promoting genocide for the Jewish people and so the judges called on the President to immediately announce that he is repealing and suspending the agreement or else he would be brought to Israel, or he would at least be put on trial in abstencia in Israel.

It looks like they will hold some sort of a trial there and bring up these charges. It shows, it reflects the opinion in Israel, that the Israeli people are overwhelmingly against this nuclear deal, and overwhelmingly believe it will unleash Iran to indeed possibly commit genocide against Israel so it doesn't have much support and therefore the Sanhedrin action is not all that much of a surprise."

David Dolan, reporting on the court of the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem, charging President Obama and alerting him that he needs to stand before their court. I report this story because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The fact that the court of the Sanhedrin is operating in Israel is evidence that there could be a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem very, very soon.

The Temple Institute is the group that has been preparing to build the next Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. They have trained all the Priest to operate that Temple and they are in the process of making their garments. All the furniture has been prepared, the implements there in storage, waiting for the Temple to be erected on the Temple Mount. And in order to be able to build the Temple they need the Sanhedrin, the Jewish court, to watch over the construction and the operation of the Temple.

The Sanhedrin is up and operating as a part of the Israeli judicial system which is evidence that the rebuilding of the next Temple in Jerusalem is close at hand.

The Temple Institute is working to produce a Red Heifer so that they can rebuild the Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem

Listen to Today's Program Play

The Temple Institute has announced that they are working to produce a Red Heifer, they actually have a ranch in the Negev Desert, south of Jerusalem, where the work is going on. Winkie Medad has more on what's happening.

WINKIE MEDAD: "Well here in Israel and from abroad, I remember a case in Texas and some other places, where those who are committed to attempting to recreate elements of the Temple worship in preparation for the time that we can get going on the Temple and the sacrificial works and other elements of the high priest and others; it's a very complicated issue as you know well Jimmy and I just want to make sure our readers know it is a very, very difficult ritualist type of approach, but one of the main elements is the red heifer because without that technically we are impure in a spiritual sense. People have tried to help us in the past.

The newness of this information this past week or so is  that  they are using genetically engineered elements that modern science is providing us in order to perhaps perfect the, or shall I say, increase the probability that we can obtain the red heifer that is unblemished as the Bible tells us."

Winkie Medad a broadcast partner for us here on Prophecy Today reporting on the activities of the Temple Institute in producing a red heifer. We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The final thing to be done for rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem is to have a red heifer.

The Temple Institute has led the preparations for the rebuilding of a Temple in the city of Jerusalem. They have trained 28,000 men to do the priestly duties. They have all the Temple furniture to go into the Temple. They have all the Temple implements for the sacrificial system. And they have over 4,000 harps; however, there is something that they still need and that is a red heifer for the purification of all those who will serve in the Temple and the implements and furniture that will be used  in the Temple. The Temple Institute is now working at producing a red heifer.

The Bible tells us that all of these things will come together for a Temple very soon now, in Jerusalem. That's Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15, 2 Thessalonians 2:4  and Revelation 11:1-2. Theses are the scriptures that guarantee that there will be a Temple in Jerusalem.  Producing a red heifer is the final step in this process. Bible Prophecy will be fulfilled. That is my prophetic prospective on the news today.

The most popular religion in the US is Judaism

Listen to Today's Program Play

According to Harvard Professor Robert Putnam as revealed in his recently released book "American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites the United States" the most popular religion in the US is not Catholicism or Mormonism, it is Judaism.

Putnam, in a previous book he published, indicated that America was losing its social capital, but that Americans were a deeply religious people, more so on average than in Iran for example. Putnam said he thinks what brought about the surprising popularity of these historically persecuted people was that the American public may have learned the lessons of the injustice wrought upon the chosen people in the past.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Though a recent survey says that in America the most popular religion is Judaism, the end times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy contradicts those findings.

Harvard professor and author Robert Putnam has released his findings of a survey taken from among 3000 people, a cross section of America, that reveals Judaism is the most popular religion among Americans. These findings are very interesting; however, they are somewhat difficult to believe when one reads the reports of growing Antisemitism in America and around the world. Some have said that this survey may indicate that there are those who embrace Judaism because of guilt from the way that the world has traditionally persecuted the Jewish people. Whatever the reason for Judaism's popularity in America, the future does not bode well for the Jews.

In a seven year period of time known as the Tribulation Period, the Jewish people will not be very popular and in fact will be the focus of not only persecution but an effort for the complete annihilation of the Jewish people on earth, that scenario is revealed in Revelation 14-19. In these 16 chapters, it is evident that the sources of evil, both man and angels will try to eliminate the Jews from the world, Revelation 12:13-17. Zechariah, another ancient Jewish prophet, says that two-thirds of the Jews will be killed during this same period of time, Zechariah 13:8.

Judaism may be popular today, but in the future, the Jews will be the target for destruction.

Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, has identified two-thirds of the Jews that were murdered in the Holocaust

Listen to Today's Program Play

The Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, Yad Vashem, has over the last decade found additional identities for Jews killed during the Holocaust in Word War II and now has identified two-thirds of the Jews murdered in the Holocaust in their relentless efforts to restore the names of as many of the six million Jews that were murdered by the Nazis under the command of Adolph Hitler.

Yad Vashem stands as a testimony to the reality and the historicity of the Holocaust and six million Jews that were murdered, which is in the face of Holocaust deniers like the President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas and the Iranian President, President Ahmadinejad.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Holocaust museum in Jerusalem, Yad Vashem, is solid evidence of an historic event and it is also a reminder of a future Holocaust yet to come for the Jewish people.

When Adolph Hitler came to power in Germany in the 1930's, he moved quickly to try to eliminate all the Jewish people, not only in Germany, but throughout all of Europe. For decades, the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem has relentlessly worked to restore the names and identities of all six million Jewish people murdered by the Nazi's.

Though Holocaust denyers like the President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas, and the Iranian Prime Minister Ahmadinejad, have spewed out venomous, poisonous rhetoric saying that the Holocaust is a hoax, Yad Vashem has documented the reality of the Holocaust. This documentation has certified the past, as it pertains to killing Jews, and it also is a reminder that the worst Holocaust is yet to come.

Revelation 4:2 through 19:10, is sixteen chapters in the Bible that describes the seven year Tribulation Period referred to by the Jews as the time of Jacob's trouble. That's Jeremiah 30:7. It is also prophesied by the ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah that two out of every three Jewish people on the earth today will be killed in the future Tribulation. That number would be about 8 1/2 million Jewish people killed. That reference is Zechariah 13:8.

The word Israel is used 26 times in the Revelation passage mentioned before which is evidence that Israel will be under fire during that period of time and they will flee for their lives to no avail.

Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

Jerusalem is declared the eternal capital of Israel by the prime minister and confirmed by the Israel Knesset

Listen to Today's Program Play

The headline for this report is correct - howbeit, it is a headline from Israel dating back over 60 years to the time when on December 13, 1949, David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first prime minister, declared to the members of the Israeli government meeting in Tel Aviv, that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state of Israel and the Israeli legislative body, the Knesset, approved the declaration. The Israeli government action followed the United Nations declaration that Jerusalem must be internationalized to which David Ben-Gurion responded that Jerusalem is an intrical part of Israel, its eternal capital, and no United Nations resolution can change such an historic fact.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Though the world doesn't recognize the historic prophetic fact that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state of Israel as so declared by Israel's first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, the Bible confirms this fact and says it is absolute.

In December of 1949 the then prime minister of Israel, David Ben-Gurion, made the unilateral declaration that Jerusalem was the eternal capital of the Jewish state of Israel and that no United Nations resolution could change that fact. Ben-Gurion added that Jerusalem was made the capital of the Jewish people some 3000 years ago, a declaration made by the second king of Israel, King David. The counter-declaration by Ben-Gurion that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel, was a political declaration that is in perfect harmony with many passages in the Bible. 

In the Davidic Covenant found in II Samuel 7, the Lord promised the Jewish people that He will give them a place to dwell and that they will move no more (II Samuel 7:10). The Davidic Covenant also confirms that the Jewish Messiah will rule a kingdom from a temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and do that forever. In fact, God has committed to dwelling among the Jewish people in Jerusalem forever (Psalm 132:13-14). Even on the new earth called for in Isaiah 65 and 66 and in Revelation 21, the earthly city of Jerusalem will be the center of all spiritual activities (Micah 4:1-3, Isaiah 2). 

David Ben-Gurion's declaration over 60 years ago that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state of Israel is absolute. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

There are reports that the Dead Sea could dry up in the next several years - but there may be a solution

Listen to Today's Program Play

For a number of years, the Dead Sea, located in the Jordan Valley with the Eastern shore in Jordan and the Western shore in Israel, the Dead Sea has been losing its water and now it's sinking by about three feet per year which is causing fears both in Jordan and Israel that the Dead Sea could literally dry up by the year 2050.

One of the main ideas being considered by Jordan and Israel is the Red Dead Conveyance Project, a project that would involve digging a canal and using a series of water pipeline conduits that could bring water from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea in order to bring the Dead Sea water level back to normal.

The project would take over 20 years to complete and would cost as much as 15 billion dollars at today's values, but when completed, the project would bring about a new source of electric energy for the region, create new recreational areas to draw tourists to the area, and save one of the wonders of the world, the Dead Sea, which is located at the lowest spot on the earth.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Red Dead Project could save the Dead Sea, but it also may be a project that will set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

For a number of years, Middle East politicos, governmental leaders, and engineers have been talking about the Red Dead Project and how it could be the answer to the ever increasing problem at the Dead Sea and its loss of water. In search of a solution for this problem, Israeli President Shimon Peres presented the Red Dead Project to a regional gathering of political leaders, governmental officials and bankers.

This momentous project would take years and cost billions of dollars, but would also ultimately pay for itself in the long run. There are those who say this type of project could produce great wealth like the silver and gold that could be extracted from the Dead Sea, enough money to pay the national debts of almost every nation in the world.

In the book of Ezekiel 38:13, the prophet mentions the gold and silver that will attract Israel's enemies to come to destroy the Jewish state. Later in Ezekiel 47, he mentions how water from the Temple in Jerusalem will actually flow down to the Dead Sea and make it a freshwater lake, not 10 times saltier than the ocean as it is today.

A focus on the Dead Sea is indeed a prop on the stage for the end times scenario that will be fulfilled.

The Eurozone Ministers have agreed to give Greece a bridging loan in light of their Economic crisis

Listen to Today's Program Play

Eurozone Ministers have agreed to give Greece a bridging loan from an European Union fund to keep it's finances afloat until a bailout is approved. The European Central Bank has agreed to increase emergency funding to Greece for the first time since it was frozen in June. These decisions were made after Greek members of the Parliament passed tough reforms as part of a Eurozone bailout.

Dr Rob Congdon explains why a Greek bailout could be a global problem.

ROB CONGDON: "I think that's the key, the Greek debt is heavy, they need a lot of money. But when we start comparing with the rest of the world we start seeing that Greece is almost like a preview of what we could be seeing.

Greece owes 3 1/2 times the amount of money they can produce in a year. The United States owes 3.7 times  what it can produce in a year; therefore we are in deeper debt, if you will, then Greece is. Britain 5 1/2 times their annual production is what it would take to pay their current debt for a year, so it's in bad shape. Ireland is an EU country which will be standing in the wings shortly saying we need money. They are in debt 10 times what they can produce in a year.

So what we have is a whole series of nations that have overextended themselves and are deep in debt. In Europe it isn't the same as in the US because Europe up until now has not been able to print more bills, cash, to pay the debts or to give people more money, so what you have is a spiral that is moving and actions are going to have to be taken very soon to start correcting this trend that is really a global trend."

Dr Rob Congdon with that report for us here on Prophecy Today. I report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Greek economic crisis will have an impact on Europe and the entire world prophetically.

Greece is part of the Eurozone. Members of the European Union who have joined together with a common currency called the Euro. A fall of the Eurozone could destroy the European Union which is the infrastructure for the Revived Roman Empire that is called for in Daniel 7:7-24.

In addition to that, global economics has a major role in the future. Revelation 18 calls for an economic, political, governmental system that will rule the world from the city of Babylon in the coming Tribulation period. The domino effect because of the Greek economic crisis could be setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The Palestinian government says that Jewish people have no right to pray at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, where they now go to pray 3 times every day

Listen to Today's Program Play

There is a document on the official mouthpiece for the Palestinian Authority, a website that claims the Jewish people have no right to go to the Western Wall in Jerusalem and pray, which they do three times daily, because the report says the Western Wall belongs to Moslems and the Jews have no connection with the Western Wall. 

This study by the Palestinian Authority has been denounced by Israel and the United States because it says the Western Wall has always belonged to the Moslems and the Jews have been allowed to pray there because of Moslem tolerance. 

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The claim by the Palestinian Authority that Jewish people have no right to pray at the Western Wall in Jerusalem is a contradiction to historic fact and the prophetic scenario that focuses on the Temple Mount for the end times. 

The report published by an official of the Palestinian Authority stating that Jews have no connection to the Western Wall in Jerusalem since there is no stone in the Western Wall that dates back to the time of King Solomon is partially correct and partially wrong. The correct part is that indeed there are no stones in the Western Wall dating back to King Solomon some 3000 years ago - the reason being that the Western Wall was only built some 2000 years ago by Herod the Great. The incorrect statement is that there is no historic Jewish connection to the Western Wall. 

Herod used over 10,000 Jewish laborers to build that wall and it was the western retaining wall used to keep the Temple Mount in tact. King Solomon did build the first temple on the Temple Mount and Herod the Great spent 46 years refurbishing the second temple on that same spot - both of these were Jewish temples. That disproves the Palestinian Authority claim of no Jewish connection to the Western Wall. 

In fact, the Bible states that one day the Messiah, Jesus Christ, will come back to earth and build a temple for the Jewish people on the Temple Mount (Zechariah 1:16,6:12). However, before Messiah builds His temple in Jerusalem, there will be a Jewish temple erected on the Temple Mount (Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15, II Thessalonians 2:4, and Revelation 11:1). 

Palestinian claims are wrong. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

There has been a historic agreement between Iran and world powers as it relates to the Iranian nuclear program

Listen to Today's Program Play

World powers have reached a deal with Iran on limiting Iranian nuclear activity in return for the lifting of international economic sanctions. Iranian President Rouhani said that it opened a new chapter in Iran's relations with the world.

Meanwhile Prime Minister Netanyahu says it is a stunning historic mistake. Netanyahu says that Iran wants to control the world.

David Dolan, long time journalist in the Middle East agrees, I asked David, does indeed Iran want to control the world:

DAVE DOLAN: "They do and you know that we forget sometimes that with the scope of modern weaponry, i.e.: weapons of mass destruction which can travel across the globe in just minutes. We should be worried, this is a country that states it's goal is world domination. Now Hitler did the same thing, he was going to establish the 4th Reich over all the earth, the 3rd Reich would be in Europe and then it would spread to the whole world but lets face it he didn't have the wherewithal to do  that, but today all Iran needs is a couple dozen nuclear weapons that can travel on ballistic missiles and they could literally wipe the major cities of the United States and Europe and other places out and effectively begin their march to total world domination.

It is indeed a possibility today that such a thing could occur; so we better take their warnings, their statements, their repeated blusterings on this seriously. I think that is what is being said to John Kerry, the security of state, by many Senators here in America and others around the world; certainly by Prime Minister Netanyahu that a bad deal is worse then any deal. Anything that allows Iran any sort of nuclear capability is bad for the world and I think that is definitely the case."

David Dolan, on the Iranian nuclear deal. I report this story because it is setting the stage for Bible Prophecy to be fulfilled.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

With the nuclear deal, Iran is now a major danger to the entire world. Psalm 83:4 says there will be a call for Israel to  be destroyed and Iran on a continual basis repeats that statement, they will wipe Israel off the face of the earth. Ezekiel 38:5 finds Ezekiel the prophet saying Iran, mentioned in that passage as Persia, that Iran will be a major player in the end times.

These prophetic passages will indeed be fulfilled. The Iranian nuclear deal is simply setting the stage for the fulfillment of God's prophetic Word.

Colonel Bob Maginnis at the Pentagon says whatever the outcome of the Iranian nuclear talks may be Iran is still going to be a major threat to this world

Listen to Today's Program Play

Colonel Bob Maginnis who serves the Pentagon as an advisor on strategic  planning says that the Iranian deal whatever way it may come out is going to put Iran in a position that they will impact the entire Middle East for the next fifty years.

We are not going to see Iran go away as a threat to the Middle East or to any other part of the world.

Here is what Bob had to say from the Pentagon:

BOB MAGINNIS:  "I think that the Iranians have not backed down from their hegemonic view of not only the region  but of the broader world. Given that and given the eschatological views of the ali Khomeinis  and the clerics that run that place, they see themselves as the helm  of the world and anything that interferes with that needs to be dismissed; negotiating a treaty they don't have any intention of following through with makes perfect sense given their theology and the way in which they look at the world today." 

That report from Colonel Bob Maginnis at the Pentagon in Washington DC,  I report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Iran will be a major threat in the future according to Bible prophecy. Iran is mentioned as Persia in Ezekiel chapter 38 and verse 5. Until 1936, Persia was the name for three states we know today as Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran. Iran is going to play a key role in the alignment of nations that will come against the Jewish state of Israel. 

Deal or no deal whatever the results may be, whether Iran abides by the deal or or lies and does not abide by the decision made in the negotiations, there is going to be a threat continually from the Iranian Islamic Republic. Bible prophecy tells us that that will be the case and as Bob Maginnis said they are motivated by their own eschatology. 

Iranian eschatology comes from the belief that the 12th Imam will come back to  power, he will raise from the dead, and he will be the Mahdi, that's Arabic for Messiah; he will come forth into this world to set up a worldwide caliphate, a world dominion, which actually fits into the plan that the ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel wrote about some 2500 years ago, that one of the major players would be the nation of Iran. God's Word will be fulfilled. 

These talks or any deal that may come out of these talks are simply setting the stage for Bible prophecy to 
be fulfilled.

A poster produced by the Islamic terror group Hamas says that Palestine loves President Obama

Listen to Today's Program Play

On a poster recently produced by the Islamic terror group Hamas, in the Gaza Strip, President Obama is depicted wearing a keffiyeh, the traditional Arab head covering, and in English under the photo it reads, "abu-Hussein", the name commonly used for President Obama by Hamas, "abu-Hussein, Palestine loves you." 

The text of this poster has appeared on the front page of a number of Arab newspapers and attributes the admiration by Hamas towards President Obama as a result of his tendency to be tough on Israel in his public statements and actions. 

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The admiration for President Obama by the Islamic terror organization Hamas because of his tough stand against Israel is evidence that Bible prophecy is very close to being fulfilled.

The appearance of posters in the Gaza Strip, depicting President Obama wearing an Arab headdress, and referring to the US President as abu-Hussein, is evidence of the admiration that the Islamic terror group Hamas has for Obama. President Obama has made an effort to reach out to the Islamic world and develop a relationship with the Moslems by saying that the United States is not at war with Islam. 

This scenario is a page out of the Olivet Discourse, a prophetic message that Jesus Christ gave on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. That Discourse is recorded in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, where Jesus Christ gives signs of His Second Coming to the earth. Luke 21:24 reveals that the Jews would be dispersed across the world from Jerusalem and that happened in 70AD. The verse also says that Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. The term, "times of the Gentiles" is referring to the Gentile world having control over Jerusalem and the Jews. Today we see that the Gentiles, President Obama and the Moslem world are working to control both Jerusalem and the Jewish people.

The Hamas poster of President Obama is indeed evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

A Hamas leader says that Jews will soon be expelled from all of Israel

Listen to Today's Program Play

Mahmoud Zahar, a Hamas leader in the Gaza Strip, says the Jews of Israel, Palestine as he referred to the Jewish nation, will be soon expelled from the land the same way they were expelled out of France, Russia, and Germany in the past. Zahar said that the only nation that received the Jews after they were expelled from the European nations was the Islamic nation which protected them. 

Zahar claimed that the Jews were expelled in the past because they betrayed, stole, and corrupted the countries and that the Palestinians with their blood can liberate their lands and holy sites in all of Palestine. 

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The declaration by a Hamas terrorist leader that the Jews will soon be expelled from their nation of Israel is an echo of the prophetic scenario that's found in Bible prophecy for the last days. 

Mahmoud Zahar, a Hamas terrorist leader has in the past called for the Jews to be expelled from their land and nation of Israel. Now the Islamic terrorist leader says that in the near future the Jews will indeed be put out of the land that they claim as a Jewish state. Zahar has called for all Palestinian factions to unite and if need be shed their blood to liberate what they call Palestine which they say is all of Israel and then they can go to al Aksa Mosque in Jerusalem to pray. 

This report is evidence that the end of times prophetic scenario found in the Bible is very close to fulfillment. The ancient Jewish prophets Ezekiel, Malachi, and Obadiah all prewrote history on this matter and foretold of the Edomites, the descendants of Esau, the Palestinians of today trying to rid the world of the Jewish people, the descendants of Jacob, twin brother of Esau. Malachi wrote that the Edomites, the Palestinians, would return to rebuild (Malachi 1). Ezekiel wrote that these people, the Palestinians, would kill the Jews and take their land (Ezekiel 35). Obadiah revealed that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would only be resolved when the Messiah Jesus Christ returns to the earth (Obadiah 15-18). Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

A Middle East expert says that the Arab lobby in Washington rules America

Listen to Today's Program Play

A new book by Middle East expert Mitchell Bard claims that the Arab lobby in Washington DC, headed up by the Saudis, has unlimited sources to try to buy what they usually cannot win on merits or their arguments. In response to the claim that the Israeli government also has a group that lobbies the United States government on Israel's behalf, Bard said that the Arab lobby is one of the strongest in America even stronger than the Israeli group and that the Arab world has many resources to call upon for influence in Washington.

Saudi officials let it be known that current US government officials can be hired following their retirement which many believe may help the officials adopt positions while in government to make themselves marketable to the Arab lobby.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The influence of the Arab lobby in the United States with its unlimited resources to buy what they cannot win on the merits of their arguments is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

There has always been pressure applied to all branches of government in the United States through what is called lobbying - advocates for a cause, who apply pressure on the Congress or the administration to go one direction instead of another. The media has complained about undue pressure from AIPAC, which is the Israeli lobby, while at the same time the Arab world has its own lobbying group in Washington headed up by the Saudis. With unlimited resources at their disposal, the Arab lobby does indeed make their wishes known to members of the United States government.

What is so interesting about this report is the list of nations found in Bible prophecy that will play a key role in the end times scenario which is revealed in the Bible. Daniel and Ezekiel, two of the ancient Jewish prophets, reveal in their prophecies these nations and most of them are members of the Arab world. Daniel points out that Syria and Egypt, referred to as the Kings of the North and the South in Daniel 11:40-43, that Syria and Egypt will join a coalition of nations to come and destroy the Jewish state of Israel in the last days. Ezekiel, in Ezekiel 38:5, mentions Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia, and Libya as part of that same coalition. Even the Psalmist in Psalm 83 mentions Lebanon and Saudi Arabia in the alignment of Arab nations that will come against Israel.

Bible prophecy will indeed be fulfilled.

Jordan's King Abdullah says a failure in the Middle East peace talks could lead to war in the region

Listen to Today's Program Play

Jordan's King Abdullah told talk show host John Stewart, on a recent appearance on The Daily Show that if Middle East peace talks fail there could be a war in the Middle East and the United States will be involved in this war which could spread throughout the entire region. Abdullah said that the lack of ability to move the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks forward as well as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are factors in the success or failure of bringing peace to the region. 

The Jordanian king said that his country has a vested interest in the success of the peace talks reminding Stewart that the future security for the Israelis and the Palestinians is security for Jordan as well.  

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Jordanian King Abdullah's warning of a Middle East war, if the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks fail, is in essence a page out of Bible prophecy for the last days. 

Jordan's King Abdullah on the John Stewart talk show, The Daily Show, was almost prophetic as he warned of a war in the Middle East if the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks fail. The king said that Jordan was between Iraq and a hard place, with a hint of humor, however the king is speaking truth about a region of the world that he knows very well. Jordan's population is made up of Palestinians who have moved into Jordan over the last 60 years and number almost 3.5 million, 70% of Jordan's total population. King Abdullah is eagerly watching as the peace talks move ahead with many bumps on the road to success. 

The king may not realize that his warning of a Middle East war happening in the next year is a page right out of Bible prophecy. The ancient Jewish prophets did not name the exact time but they did prewrite history pertaining to the Middle East war in the future (Ezekiel 38 and Daniel 11). Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Malachi, and Obadiah were more specific in their prophecies as it relates to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Malachi 1 reveals that the Edomites, modern-day Palestinians, that the Edomites will return to power and build borders that the Lord calls borders of wickedness. Ezekiel 35 predicts the Palestinians will kill Jews and take their land. Both Obadiah and Jeremiah say that when the Messiah comes back to the Earth, the Edomites, today's Palestinians will be destroyed. 

King Abdullah's warning of a Middle East war is correct. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

Thousands of Jews gather at the Temple Mount to declare this sacred piece of real estate belongs to the Jewish people

Listen to Today's Program Play

Thousands of Jews gathered recently at the gates to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem to declare their allegiance to this holy site and to declare the city of Jerusalem is the united, undivided, eternal capital of the Jewish people.

Speakers at the rally march said that discrimination has severely restricted the ability of Jews to ascend to the Temple Mount while at the same time Moslem rules forbid Jews from praying on this site which is Judaism's most holy site. 

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Thousands of Jews marching around the Temple Mount to say that this sacred piece of real estate is Jewish is an event that speaks to the past and to the future that is according to Bible prophecy.

The Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the location of the gold domed building, the Dome of the Rock that is seen on the Jerusalem skyline, is the same as the spot that Abraham took his son Isaac to offer as a sacrifice. This place is Mount Moriah where King Solomon built the first Jewish Temple 3000 years ago, II Chronicles 3:1. The Temple Mount, as it is known today, is also where the Jews returning from the Babylonian captivity rebuilt the Temple, Ezra 1-6.

Today, the Temple Mount is a place of controversy as the ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah said that it would be in the last days, Zechariah 12:2. The Islamic Trust controls the Temple Mount today and they refuse to allow the Jewish worshipers to pray there on the mount, and often they will not even allow the Jews to enter the Temple Mount compound.

By the way, that same Jewish prophet Zechariah also predicted that the Lord was jealous for Jerusalem, aggressively possessive for the city that He chose to dwell among His people forever and He is sore displeased about the heathen control of this sacred spot and He also said that one day He will come back to Jerusalem and to the Temple Mount there to build His Temple that will be on that spot forever, Zechariah 1:14-16 and this is Bible prophecy that will be fulfilled.

On an Israeli news site the headline read, new immigrants fulfill prophecy of the ingathering of the Jewish people

Listen to Today's Program Play

The headline on the Arutz 7 news website in Israel says that new immigrants recently arriving in Israel are part of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy that foretold the in-gathering of the Jewish people to the land of their forefathers in the days before the coming of the Messiah. Among the most recent new Israeli citizens were a group from the United States, actually 21 different states, and the group included a 5 month old baby and a 95 year old grandmother, all citizens of the United States that have a Jewish background and wanted to spend the rest of their lives in the land that they say God has provided for the Jewish people. 

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Jews returning to the land of Israel today to become citizens of the land of their forefathers is a part of the process of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy for the last days.

Recently on a very popular Israeli news website, Arutz 7, the headline of one of the major stories was, new immigrants fulfill prophecy of the ingathering. It was a photo story showing hundreds of Jews from America that had decided to come home to the land of their forefathers, the land of Israel. Many of them carried signs telling of their love for Israel and a number of these new Israeli citizens even got off of the airplane and kissed the ground of the Jewish state. The web news site wanted to feature the story of Jews coming home to Israel because they believe it is a part of Bible prophecy being fulfilled and they are correct. 

Over the last 100 years, out of 100 nations of the world, Jews have been making their way into the Jewish state of Israel even before it became a state. The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel wrote 2500 years ago that the Lord, in the last days, will bring the Jews from wherever they are in the world into the land that He had promised them. That prophecy is found in Ezekiel 34 where 18 times the Lord says that He will find the Jews where they had been scattered some 2000 years ago and bring them into the land of their forefathers. Ezekiel 37:8 foretells of the Jewish state being revived and Ezekiel 36 tells the Jews of the land that God will give them in the last days. 

The arrival of Jews in Israel to immigrate, to come home, is, as the Israeli website reported, the proof that Bible prophecy is being fulfilled.

As we celebrate the birthday of the United States, the question of America's place in Bible prophecy can be answered

Listen to Today's Program Play

Independence Day celebrations mark the birth of the United States of America, an experiment that has been very successful in many different ways. Many Christians say that the reason for America's prosperity is due to their support for world evangelism. The United States has been the launch pad for worldwide missions, spreading the gospel to a needy world. 
The other reason given for America's success is that we have protected the Jewish state of Israel for the many years of its existence, keeping the Jewish people from total elimination by its enemies. These two reasons, at the least, have played a role in bringing the United States to where it is today; but where is the United States in Bible prophecy?

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The question of America's place in Bible prophecy does have an answer.
"Where is America in Bible prophecy?" That is the most asked question in any "Prophecy Question and Answer" time. I am always asked this question when I open up to inquiring people.
Once in a "Prophecy Question and Answer" time someone told me that they knew, so I asked "Where?"
They said, "Jerusalem."
I asked them to explain, and they spelled out the word Jerusalem.
"J - e - r - U - S - A - l - e - m", to which everybody laughed.
As I thought about the answer though, I believe that it is correct, the only place in Bible prophecy that I see the possibility of the mention of the United States or an illusion to the United States is in Zechariah 14:2.
Zechariah revealed that at the time of the end all of the armies of the world would gather at Jerusalem, under the leadership of Satan, Anti-Christ, and the False Prophet - there to confront Jesus Christ on His return to the Mount of Olives from where He departed some 2,000 years ago. If America survives the 7 year Tribulation Period, their army would join the other armies of the world at Jerusalem.
America today is great because the backbone of this nation is made up of true, Bible believing, born-again Christians. When the Christians leave this world at the Rapture of the Church, which could happen at any moment, the most powerful nation in the world will most likely fall from it's power base.
America's spiritual decline, in the present, will result in a power decline in the future. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.

The Mufti of Jerusalem says that Israeli control of Hebron, Bethlehem, and Jerusalem could start a religious war

Listen to Today's Program Play

Jerusalem's Mufti Mohammed Hussein, the highest ranking Islamic cleric in Jerusalem, says that Israeli sovereignty over Hebron, Bethlehem, and Jerusalem, three of the most important holy sites in Judaism, could start a religious war.

Hebron is the location of the burial site of the Jewish patriarchs. Bethlehem is where Jacob buried his wife, Rachel and in Jerusalem, the Temple Mount is the holiest site for the Jewish people and the location where Jews want to build a temple in the near future.

The mufti's says Israel's claim to these Jewish holy sites is an attempt to take over the religious sites and Moslems are now in a period of war, not with tanks and rockets, but a religious war.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The statement by the mufti of Jerusalem that Israel's claim to their holy sites is a declaration of a religious war is a page out of Bible prophecy for the last days.

The Israeli government has established a list of heritage sites in Israel, sacred sites that are a part of Jewish history. Included in that list are three locations that the mufti of Jerusalem says will be the cause for a religious war if Israel stands firm on their claims to these sites. The sites include Rachel's tomb in Bethlehem, Rachel being Jacob's wife who died in childbirth, Genesis 35. Genesis 23 is the record of Abraham paying cash money for the Mephilah Cave, the burial site for the patriarchs of the Jewish people: Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. Israel's King David also paid cash money to Ornon the Jebusite for his threshing floor on Mt. Moriah, the site for the two previous Jewish temples in Jerusalem, I Chronicles 21.

The threat of a religious war between the Jews and the Moslems is setting the stage for an end of times conflict between these two peoples. The ancient prophet Joel, in Joel 2:2-3, warned that the largest militia ever formed on the earth will come to Jerusalem to take control of the Jewish holy sites. There is only one group of people today who could form such a militia and also people who want to control Hebron, Bethlehem, and the holy city of Jerusalem, that would be the Moslem people.

The Jerusalem mufti is right. There will be a religious war.

A survey reveals less than 10% of all born-again Christians look at the world with a biblical perspective

Listen to Today's Program Play

George Barna, a pollster with an independent marketing research company, found in a recent survey that only 4% of the overall population of America and 9% of born-again Christians have a biblical world view, suggesting that many of the nation's moral and spiritual challenges are directly attributable to this fact.

For the purposes of the research, a biblical world view was defined as believing that absolute moral truth exists, that such truth is defined by the Bible, and that the Bible is accurate in all of its teachings.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

A biblical world view based upon understanding Bible prophecy is essential for an understanding of the times we live in today.

Let's look at the provision in scripture for a biblical world view. All scripture is God breathed. That means it's inspired and is profitable for doctrine, for correction, and instruction in righteousness, that's II Timothy 3:16. God gave the scriptures to the Jew to preserve and communicate to mankind, Romans 3:1-2. And thus, we have His written Word for us today. Our blessings and understanding comes from God's provision of His heart, His mind, His thoughts in written form, the Bible.

Now, let's look at the priority for studying a biblical world view. The Apostle Paul wrote that we must study the Word of God, a workman that need not be ashamed, relying on God's Word for all of life's questions. We must rightly divide the Word of truth, the Bible, to ascertain its true meaning. These two principles, study and rightly dividing the Word of God, are instruction for the End Times and they come from Paul's exhortation to young Timothy found in II Timothy 2:15.

Finally, let's look at the prophetic scenario of a biblical world view. A study of Bible prophecy reveals the scenario for the Last Days with a seven year period of judgment in our world followed by the return of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, to establish His Kingdom here on earth. However, preceding that seven years of judgment, those who are true born again Christians will be taken out of this world to be with Jesus Christ, that's the Rapture.

Allowing the Bible to form our world view prepares us for these future events and gives us evidence as to how close they may be.
