What would you think if you saw seven skinny cows eat seven fat cows? You might wonder if you’re next on the menu. Or perhaps you’d think you were dreaming…

Most people who were raised in a church or who are believers know the story of Joseph in the book of Genesis. Jo was the young lad who started off as the black sheep of the family (cows…sheep…make up your mind eh?). One of the things Joseph is famous for is the interpretation of Pharaoh’s bad dream. Pharaoh saw in his dream seven fat healthy cows, then seven ugly looking thin cows. The seven lean cows devoured the fat ones. Jo’s correct interpretation was that the seven fat cows foretold seven years of plenty and prosperity, while the seven lean represented the seven harsh, terrible years which followed. I know the word “fat” has all but been banished from our vocabulary, but I always was a bit of a rebel.

It may seem like quite a stretch for me to associate Pharaoh’s dream with today’s political and social scene, but I’m going to do it anyway. Weren’t Pharaoh and Joseph politicians, of a sort?
Depending on which side of the political divide you see yourself on today, and from where you get your “news”, you may associate Mr Trump more with the tyrannical slave-driving Pharaoh, or instead with Joseph the deliverer. I confess shamelessly to being in the latter camp, being very mindful that Trump is only human, and that he’s provided the world a very temporary and limited respite.

It’s God who “removes kings and sets up kings” (Daniel 2:21) The leaders we have are there either because we get what we deserve or ask for foolishly, or because our Creator is attempting to show us mercy and sense. Unfortunately the respite is so temporary it can be no more than another seven years long. And now some of you know where I’m going with this post…
Respite, some of you ask? Respite from what? I’ll spell it out.
The US, and with it the entire Western world, has been running headlong down a road of globalism and open borders, and particularly open to people of a certain religion whose stated goal is to subject the world to its prophet. It’s also been moving us all towards a system in which personal freedom is to be diminished for the “common good”; the tiny nation of Israel is to be exposed to its enemies; anti-Christian bias and harassment in the nations founded by Christians is to be institutionalized, and a brand of morality and political correctness which wishes to turn the world upside down is to be imposed on us by re-education and modern-day thought police. Evil is called good and good evil. Truth with a capital “T” is being thrown to the ground.

In this Satanic, insane attack on the fundamentals of our Creator’s standards, we would, or will have to stop calling boys “boys” and girls “girls”, because the social engineers of our time wish to deny the blatantly obvious of human physique, DNA, emotional and hormonal make-up; to emasculate and denigrate men and masculinity, and to impose belligerent, angry women as kings (ahem…queens) of the castle. All of which doesn’t make sense, because if we’re born gender-less as some now want us to believe, how can women be even identified, let alone discriminated against or promoted? Surely the term “woman” is now redundant? Cannot a man now call himself a woman and so receive politically motivated promotion, or does hypocrisy reign in this situation also? Where is the logic in all of this?

All of the above conditions are warnings and hallmarks of a culture ripe for judgment. In fact, they are Biblical signs of the end-times.
The world has been getting rapidly sicker under a runaway subduction and subversion of our culture and our sanity. And I’m not naive enough to think that Trump alone can hold back the tide. But at least the flow has been slowed, to the absolutely manic anger of Trump’s opponents, who, having worked to force “tolerance” upon us for decades, now pour out hatred and intolerance for him and his supporters without measure.

Why do the nations rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us (Psalm 2:1 KJV 2000).

And so to the seven “lean” years.
While I’m certain that watching  for the signs of judgment is Biblical (Luke 21:35-36) I’m aware of the many mistakes made by some “experts” in the subject, and I’m not one to set dates. I’m not making a prophecy, and I’m not about to say that the “seven-year Tribulation” (even given that all of the seven years really do remain to be enacted) will begin the moment Mr Trump leaves office. But given the depth of determination on the other side of the political and moral spectrum, and the success with which they’ve already removed constraints and the will to reason from the minds of many people, I can’t help thinking that after Trump the Western world will immediately resume its headlong gallop towards that mythical utopia, which dangles in front of the eyes of the hopeful like some juicy carrot on a stick in front of a donkey.

ON the occasion of Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, I decided to re-post something on the subject. This post is five years old, but not at all out of date. In fact, what is covered here will become increasingly relevant to all of us in the coming months and years…

Take a look at the map above. If you can spot tiny Israel at all, dwarfed by all the surrounding lands governed by Muslims, you will see how disproportionate is the opposition to its existence. I say “existence” because sometimes Islamic leaders speak of their determination that Israel should be “driven into the sea”, or “wiped off the map” To locate Israel in this map, refer to the one at the bottom.

In my country of origin, the United Kingdom, it’s become fashionable to blame all the problems of the Middle East on Israel. Neo-Nazis and other anti-Semites even go so far as claiming that all the political and economic problems of the world are caused by Zionists and Jews. I’ve heard some of them say it myself – perhaps you have too.  Anti Semitism did not die with Hitler, it just took a back seat for a time.

Here’s a rather enlightening quote from the Hadith, a collection of phrases attributed to Mohammed:

The day of resurrection will not arrive until the Muslims make war against the Jews and kill them, and until a Jew hiding behind a rock and  tree, and the rock and tree will say: ‘Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!’ (Sahih Bukhari 004.52.176)

The Koran does not contradict the Hadith:

Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends (Surah 5:51).

And for our liberal friends, who generally side solidly against Israel, here’s some rather politically incorrect advice from the Koran which seems to escape your attention:

Men take authority over women…As for those who are disobedient, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them (Surah 4:34).

Of course, anti Semitic views are not confined to Muslims or to the United Kingdom – they are worldwide. It’s fashionable for the news media, for colleges and universities, for many politicians, celebrities, and the people on the street to take sides against Israel. The United Nations regularly condemns Israel for defending itself, and wishes to diminish its power in any way possible.

I don’t intend to go through the history of Israel, Islam and the Middle East here, except to remind you (or perhaps you’ve never been told) that  Israel was last removed from its land by the legions of the Roman Empire under Titus, in the first century AD. Josephus estimated that the Romans killed over one million people in the process, ploughing Jerusalem into the ground, and then renaming the land “Palestina” as a final insult to the Jewish race, since Israel’s nearby enemies for centuries had included the Philistines.

There has never been a nation called “Palestine”, and no other nation has had Jerusalem as its capital except Israel. Israelites wandered the earth since the first century, being hounded and persecuted wherever they went. The last significant persecutions, perpetrated by Hitler and Stalin, caused Israelites to seek their own homeland after WWII, in the hope of avoiding any future genocidal attempts against them. Fulfilling Bible prophecies, they founded the new nation of Israel, and have been growing in population and economic success. People of Jewish descent have been moving into the land from all over the world.

The terrible history of the Jewish nation, struggling for its very survival, as well as its future, was prophecied well before and during the time of Christ. In fact, the Bible speaks clearly of events still to come which will affect the whole world, centred in the nation of Israel.

The current “peace process” calls for the division of Jerusalem, and for Israel to become even smaller, so that it would be shrunk to nine miles wide at its narrowest point, and fifty at its widest. A space this small would be impossible to defend agoinst the many surrounding nations committed to Israel’s destrution. Islam now (and not in the past) claims that Jerusalem and the land “occupied” by Israel belongs to them.  Jerusalem was not mentioned once in the Koran, but is mentioned 800 times in the Bible. Jews established Jerusalem as their capital three thousand years ago.

This opposition has been prophecied in the Bible. Not only so , but the Bible speaks of a time, just before the return of Christ to the earth, when Israel’s neighbors, with the help of “all nations of the earth” will make one last almighty effort to remove the Jewish state, particularly Jerusalem and Judah, currently known as the West Bank. The number of similarities between Bible prophecy about Israel in the “Last Days”, and the current situation in the Middle East, along with world wide anti-Semitism, is amazing. You can see some of the details below.

Please understand that I am not saying that all Israelis are good and all Moslems are evil. Many Moslems are good people, and many have found faith in Christ, despite the threat of persecution from radicals among their own people. Many Israelis are ungodly people, and the judgments of the Last Days are aimed at them as much as anyone.

I’m writing today to suggest that you choose sides wisely in your discussions and your prayers, in the coming Middle East peace or security arrangement which will not last, and in the coming battles and wars between Israel and its neighbors. Choose wisely before and during the war of all wars between Israel and all the nations of the world (“all” implies that even the US will side with the Muslims, or just step aside). Choose wisely, because God has said to Israel, “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse those who curse you” (Genesis 12:1-3). Choose wisely, because whoever touches Israel touches the apple of God’s eye (Zechariah 2:8). Choose wisely, because in the day that “all nations” attack Israel, and forcefully divide Jerusalem, The Son of God Himself will show up to join in the fight (Zechariah chapters 14 and 12). At that time he will not be meek and mild, but the roaring lion of Judah:

I will gather all nations to Jerusalem to fight against it…Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives…(Zechariah 14: 2-4).

Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. The sun and moon will be darkened, and the stars no longer shine. The Lord will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem, the earth and sky will tremble. But the Lord will be a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel (Joel 3:14-16).

In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land (Joel 3:1-2).

Notice the words “my land” in that last verse. The land belongs to God, and he can lease it out to whoever He wants. Notice also the words “my people”.

…or perhaps they know it’s not. Perhaps they just want to shape your view of things.

Evangelicals who discuss different angles of Bible prophecy often consider apparent references to the necessity of a Jewish temple being rebuilt before the start of the Tribulation. Here’s my own view…

REMAINS OF THE SECOND JEWISH TEMPLE, WITH ISLAMIC DOME OF THE ROCK BEHIND IT
All evangelical prophecy “experts” and buffs who are not amillennial see in Scripture talk of a rebuilt temple, which Antichrist will one day enter and claim to be God. I’ve struggled with the idea that there could be a rebuilt temple, given the firm Muslim control of the temple mount in our day, the unwillingness of most Israelis to upset the Muslim world by even considering a temple, and the total unwillingness of the US and Europe to aid those wanting a temple for the same reason. Be assured that I’m convinced God is fully able to bring his Word to fulfillment against all the odds, but I have considered alternative possibilities to a rebuilt temple.
Since Jesus said that the “abomination of desolation” would stand in the holy place and didn’t say “temple” (Matthew 24) I wondered if it may be that simple: that there will be no temple, but just AC standing on the spot where the holy of holies was situated. Not even Jews of today will stand on the spot for fear of desecrating it, even though there’s no temple there.
However, Paul’s reference to the event (2 Thess. 2:4) contains the word “temple”. It seems that all translations use the word “temple”, and the original Greek does say “temple”, not “holy place”. Evangelical Christians of past centuries believed that the word “temple” here refers to the hearts of members of the true Church, the Church being deceived by the Pope who, they were convinced, was Antichrist. But the elect cannot be deceived, and this interpretation necessitates allegorizing most or all Last Days prophesies, making them all unsure and intangible.

THE WESTERN WALL
It seems then that there are three remaining alternatives. One is that Paul was mistaken. He only thought that the prophecy Jesus mentioned, originally in the book of Daniel, with AC standing on the holy place, spoke of the literal temple which was still standing in Paul’s day. He should instead have directly quoted Jesus who said “holy place”. Paul, in this scenario, expected the destruction of the temple to come at the same time as the AC is revealed, when in fact its destruction by the Roman army came not long after his death, and the AC is yet future.
So was Paul mistaken? If so the entire New Testament on shaky ground. If Paul was wrong about this then the Holy Spirit did not breathe Truth into the Words of our NT as it claims; Paul’s letters are not Scripture as Peter said they were; Peter was wrong to say they were Scripture, and it’s all unreliable. It appears that there must be a temple on the temple mount in order for Biblical integrity to be maintained, and for prophecy to be fulfilled.
The temple likely cannot be built anywhere else without defying Scripture. The Temple Mount Faithful state that the spot where the holy of holies was is currently smack-dab in the middle of the Dome of the Rock, built seven hundred years after the temple was destroyed. The Dome is one of the most revered shrines in Islam. Indeed, any attempt to replace the Dome with a Jewish temple in present conditions would likely start WWIII.
The second possibility is propounded by Amir Tsarfati among others, which is that the Gog-Magog war spoken of in Ezekiel will be the next fulfillment of prophecy. The Islamic world will be greatly weakened by its defeat foretold in chapters 38 and 39, and the Israelis, finding their Bible to be coming to life once again, will be inspired and emboldened to build a temple on the spot where the Islamic Dome of the Rock now sits.
A third possibility to my mind is that AC will be somehow acceptable to the Muslims-possibly himself a Muslim-and will enter the Dome, stand on the spot where the holy of holies was, and make his “I am God” speech. This possibility fits with the present-day Islamification of Europe, also desired in the US by some on the left of the political spectrum. Could this scenario fit Islamic eschatology of the coming Mahdi? That’s a subject for another post.
NOTES
STRONG’S CONCORDANCE:
The word used by Paul here, and subsequently in the NT (3724) is defined thus:
…of the temple in Jerusalem; it generally denotes the temple building. Also used figuratively for the church as the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit.
Many of the remaining uses of 3724 in the NT do refer to non-corporeal temples: the Church, the temple in heaven, etc.
THE VIEW OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT FAITHFUL:
1,932 years after the destruction of the Second Temple, there are various theories as to the location of the Temple and the Holy of Holies. Some believe that the Temple was located north of the Dome of the Rock while others believe that it was south of the Dome of the Rock. Some of these theories are an attempt at compromise because of the actual situation that the rock is today located under the Dome of the Rock and because of a fear that the removal of the Dome of the Rock and the building of the Temple on this place could cause World War III. These theories do not take into account the fact that no compromise can be made with the Word of Gd Who assigned the location of the Temple and showed it in prophecy to King David.
The Third Temple can only be built on the same location which the Gd of Israel indicated to King David in prophecy and where the First and Second Temples were built. The Third Temple and the Holy of Holies cannot be relocated by even one centimeter to the north or south. Only Gd controls war and peace and the destiny of Israel. There is no doubt that Gd is testing Israel today on the Temple Mount, which is the key place in the world. Gd expects Israel to rebuild His house on the correct position on the Temple Mount with no fear of the Moslem enemy which, at the end of the seventh century CE, built the Dome of the Rock on the most holy place of the Gd and people of Israel and desecrated the hill of Gd and revolted against the Word of Gd. Gd promised the people of Israel that in the endtimes He would redeem His holy hill and Jerusalem together with the people and land of Israel and He would protect them and fight for them against the enemies who would try to prevent His prophetic endtime plans for Israel.

There’s a relationship between these names: a common thread relevant to our times and the world we all live in…

img_4429067786defAn EU Council poster. Note the caption: “MANY TONGUES, ONE VOICE”

Since President Obama pushed open the floodgates for immigrants into the US, erasing the legal/illegal distinction, and instructing border security to “stand down” and just watch and facilitate the invasion of the US by anyone who wanted to enter, any opposition to illegal immigration has been labelled “racism” and “bigotry”. As in Europe, big media companies slap frightening titles such as “far right” and “extreme nationalism” onto any political figure daring to even question the wisdom of opening the doors to all who want to come into the West, whether they’re vetted or not.

800px-Pieter_Bruegel_the_Elder_-_The_Tower_of_Babel_(Vienna)_-_Google_Art_Project_-_edited

However, not just in the US but in Europe also there’s a distinct flavor to this new one-world culture being surreptitiously foisted onto all of us. The following is a quote from the official document from a 1991 meeting which outlines the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic goals for North America:

“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…” (NOTE 1).

Given the above, why did President Obama frequently entertain the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House? Why did he smooth the path to Iran’s development of nuclear weapons, and why did he sweeten the deal with a billion and a half dollars of US taxpayers’ money without congressional approval? Why did he support the MB takeover of Egypt, dressed up as an “Arab Spring” by the media, which led to an immediate onslaught on the Coptic Christian population, and a strict imposition of Sharia law? (NOTE 2). Why is the EU drawing in so many of that same cultural background into Europe- in fact millions of them-the great majority of which has no intention of assimilating?

Hillary Clinton’s aim was to maintain the legacy and goals of Obama. She was the globalists’ dream-the one who would continue Obama’s push. But the election of Trump upset the apple cart, and unleashed a world of hate and fury by the media and by establishment politicians-Democrat and Republican. Even media and politicians in Europe were screaming “foul”. Donald Trump rocked the establishment boat-the boat quietly but firmly taking us all down their globalist river. That “swamp” that Mr Trump promised to drain turned out to be a lot deeper and more stinky than even he expected, and it’s attempting to suck him under.download

On the other side of the Atlantic Europe continues to be changed into the image of a European “dream”, in which national identities and cultures are to be dissolved for a new one. And what will that new one be like? There’s no need to guess, because with mass immigration and the decline and fall of indigenous family and culture, population projections see Muslims as being the largest ethnic group within just a few decades in most EU countries.

The EU was intentionally founded to be a pre-global political organization. It’s a model and a stepping-stone for world government, in which national identities (but only those of the West) are erased. Europe and its planners cleverly knew that a top-down change would scare too many people at once. So what they did was maintain all the trappings of national government, and elections, while all the time superimposing global government on all. This of course is still in process, disguised as “sustainable development” and other euphemistic phrases.

In order to convince entire populations that what was happening was good for everyone and the only viable and desirable goal, education establishments and media giants continue to be shaped and manned to in turn shape the minds of the masses. And if we think we have no power at the ballot box now, dear reader, how will it be when our “leaders” have successfully thrown us into the pit of global government? If we think that politicians are out of touch now, and government entities impossibly monolithic and impervious, how will it be when one central power, somewhere, controls all things? Will our opinions matter then? The goal of global government; the aim of those promoting global citizenship, is that your individual rights will have no importance or relevance compared to your duty to the good of all. You will be like a worker ant: one of the many and totally dispensable.

To those of you who still think that world government is nothing more than the ridiculous conspiracy theory of semi-insane Christian fundamentalists, consider the United Nations organization, and UNESCO’s “Global Education First Initiative”. Knowing as Hitler did that the way to shape an entire nation was to “educate” its children your way, the GEFI is already at work in many schools in America and no doubt around the world. Point three of its three priorities in education is the following:

“FOSTER GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP” (NOTE 3).

Many of the goals of those promoting global citizenship appear to be good and wholesome. But who, for example, is going to decide exactly what “social injustice” is (note 4)? To liberals, social injustice includes the fact that there are too many white people, and that it “isn’t fair” that some people get paid more than others do. This is communism. And so communism can pass, to many peoples’ minds, as “social justice”. Who will set the rules? The Clintons, who “should” have been elected, to the minds of establishment politicians and media people, are so enamored with the idea of global citizenship that they offer a related award annually (note 5). Don’t bother to apply if you’re white.

download (1)(THE TOWER OF BABEL?)

The subject of monolithic organizations brings me to an interesting observation, already made by many, of the similarity between the modern West and ancient Babylon. Babel was the Biblical city in which man intended to unify under one flag, metaphorically speaking:

Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth” (Genesis 11:4 ESV).

God had different plans. He did not want mankind to be united, because he knew that they would be united in opposition against him, which would be bad for them also. So he confused their language, and dispersed them over the face of the earth (verses 5 to 9). Mankind is currently attempting to reverse the work of God at Babel.

It’s incredible to discover that the EU likens itself in many ways to a successful remake of Babel, which of course is probably nothing more than a myth to its planners and architects. What isn’t a myth is their opposition to the Biblical God and his ways.

Also remarkable is the EU’s happy recognition of the mythical roots of Europe. According to a Greek myth dating back to at least the time of Homer’s Ilyad,  the god Zeus had the hots for Europa, the Phoenecian mother of King Minos of Crete. Zeus decided to seduce her. He transformed himself into a tame white bull, and managing to coax her onto his back he ran off to Crete with her.

20_euro_6

(EUROPA ON A TWENTY-EURO NOTE)

The continent of Europe is named after Europa (no surprise there eh?). The European Union has been feeling the hots for Europa also, and has honored her in many ways-on EU money, for example.

However, it’s not just Europa who is honored, but the entire myth also. Outside the EU Council building is a statue of a bull wildly galloping along while a naked woman clings to his back.

So what, you may ask? What’s the significance? Is there any significance to the EU council’s use of a well-known painting of Babel in their literature, and their statue of Zeus carrying naked Europa on a wild ride? Couldn’t it perhaps just be that some sarcastic artist/ designer was aware of the view of some in the evangelical world, and so he wanted to tweek their excitement as a little joke?

In the eyes of some fans of Bible prophecy, the myth and the statue are in close similarity and relationship to a reference in the book of Revelation, in which a woman-“Mystery Babylon”-is seen to ride a “beast”, the very beast destined to rule the earth economically, politically and militarily. (Revelation chapter 17). More than that, it is considered by the same students of eschatology that according to prophecies in Daniel and Revelation Europe is destined to be the final kingdom to rule the earth, making its unification most significant in the light of other apparent “signs” of the nearness of end-times events.

Obama warned of a “blood-bath” were “Brexit” to succeed (note 6).

I confess to having been once completely convinced that the EU entity was to be the kingdom of Antichrist. However, over several years I’ve modified my view of the situation somewhat.  I think the kingdom of the beast will/ already does extend overseas, if you get my drift. I also believe that the movement of vast numbers of Muslims into the West is part of an elite plan to weaken and water down the influence of Christianity, so that the architects of antichrist’s kingdom can work more easily.

Perhaps most interesting is the fact that the EU seeks to dismantle borders and to foster and promote world entities, and ultimately world government. Of course many in the US and around the world are on the world-governance bandwagon. It’s a fact which is compelling in relation to prophecies of world government, and especially that prophesied world government’s opposition to genuine Christianity and the nation of Israel. These facts meet in an incredible “coincidence”, if that’s all it is, but I don’ t think it is coincidence.

I certainly do not agree with the notion of a few wackos that Donald Trump is the antichrist for many reasons. One of those reasons is that he is hated, not loved, by the globalists, by the wealthy elite who pull all the strings-including the media strings- who wish to blend all the nations and ethnic groupings together, and who want to drag the world into an anti-Christian perversion of God’s creation. They are under the spirit of Antichrist, and they are opposed to Trump.

To keep those of you who have managed to read this far in a little suspense, I think my own expectations of Antichrist’s kingdom must be discussed in another post, this one being already monstrously long. Having said that, it’s my opinion that Europe is only a part of the last-days kingdom; a little warm-up for the real thing. According to two passages from Revelation, we cannot know the form of that kingdom in any clarity until the beginning of the last three and a half years:

And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings (or kingdoms) who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast (Revelation 17:12);

The beast was…allowed to exercise authority for three and a half years (13:5).
