John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6)
1Cor. 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: AND THAT NO MAN CAN SAY THAT JESUS IS THE LORD, BUT BY THE HOLY GHOST.
THE TRIBULATION OF THE UNJUST IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION CHAPTER’S 6 to 22:
TRIBULATION IS COMING AND THE REMOVAL OF THE CHURCH IS IMMINENT.
THE GREAT “DECEPTION” IS READY TO BE IMPLEMENTED BY THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT. ARE YOU READY FOR JESUS CHRIST RETURN
Rev. 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth:
Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them
so won’t you accept Jesus now and be removed from that event and live forever with Jesus in the Family of God?
2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” (2nd Corinthians 2:6)
DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
THE COMING TEMPLE REVISITED
QUESTION: If the Tribulation period is to be seven years long, and if there is to be a Temple that the Anti-Christ will use (and abuse), how can a Temple be built in such a short period of time? Didn’t Herod’s Temple take about 40 years to be built? You have also indicated that you think the Temple may be built in Shiloh. Can you elaborate on that?
ANSWER: Herod spent 40 years extensively remodeling and enlarging the 2nd Temple. Much of this time was due to the lack of modern construction methods and materials, combined with the need to maintain the Temple’s operational capabilities during its renovation. Today the construction of a building the size of the temple would require months, not years, and could easily be completed before it’s made desolate in the middle of the 70th Week.
Rumors abound as to the advanced state of preparation for the Temple’s construction, but how accurate they are is anybody’s guess. Those who are in a position to know aren’t saying.
After the return from Babylon, the Jews began Levitical worship again with just an altar (Ezra 3:1-6), and the same could happen again since a “portable” altar already exists. Priests have been trained and equipped and only await permission to begin. To read my study on the Coming Temple, click here.
DANIEL’S 70 WEEKS REVISITED
QUESTION: If as Dan. 9:25 reveals that it would be 69 Weeks or 483 years until the Messiah would arrive, and as many suggest it was Palm Sunday (the Triumphal Entry), and if therefore the Messiah was then Crucified on Thursday or Friday, you decide, then how do you account for the miscellaneous additional 4-5 days beyond Palm Sunday? Are you suggesting that God ‘approximated’ the prophetic Crucifixion of His Only Begotten Son, Yeshua Jesus? And did the Temple system and the Mosaic Law come to an ‘official’ end at that point, even though the Temple stood thirty some odd years afterwards?
ANSWER: After ministering in Israel for about 3 years, Jesus officially presented Himself to Israel as their Messiah on the first Palm Sunday. It was 483 years after Artazerxes Longimanus issued the decree to rebuild Jerusalem (Nehemiah 2). As He rode into the city Jesus pronounced His judgment upon the people for their failure to recognize the day of His coming (Luke 19:41-44). Daniel 9:25 said after that the Messiah would be executed and so He was.
By the end of that first Palm Sunday every minute of the 69th week had passed and the clock stopped. From that day to this, not one minute of the 70th week has transpired, nor will it until Israel is back in covenant with God. The crucifixion, the resurrection, and the entire church age have taken place in the pause between the 69th and 70th weeks.
The dispensation of Law has never ended. It was suspended when the clock stopped, and temple rituals and ceremonies ceased to be effective. Both the Letter to the Hebrews and Jewish history confirm this. Since that time the Lord has focused His attention on the Church. When He’s finished He will turn again to Israel to reinstate the Mosaic Law for the remaining seven years preceding the 2nd Coming. (Acts 15:13-18).

PROPHECY OF ELAM – (Attack on Iran’s Nuclear Program
EZEKIEL 38 & 39
The recent White House decision to speed the deployment of an aircraft carrier battle group and other military assets to the Persian Gulf has led many in Washington and elsewhere to assume that the U.S. is gearing up for war with Iran. As in the lead-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, U.S. officials have cited suspect intelligence data to justify elaborate war preparations. On May 13th, acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan even presented top White House officials with plans to send as many as 120,000 troops to the Middle East for possible future combat with Iran and its proxies. Later reports indicated that the Pentagon might be making plans to send even more soldiers than that.
Hawks in the White House, led by National Security Advisor John Bolton, see a war aimed at eliminating Iran’s clerical leadership as a potentially big win for Washington. Many top officials in the U.S. military, however, see the matter quite differently—as potentially a giant step backward into exactly the kind of low-tech ground war they’ve been unsuccessfully enmeshed in across the Greater Middle East and northern Africa for years and would prefer to leave behind.
Make no mistake: if President Trump ordered the U.S. military to attack Iran, it would do so and, were that to happen, there can be little doubt about the ultimate negative outcome for Iran. Its moth-eaten military machine is simply no match for the American one. Almost 18 years after Washington’s war on terror was launched, however, there can be little doubt that any U.S. assault on Iran would also stir up yet more chaos across the region, displace more people, create more refugees, and leave behind more dead civilians, more ruined cities and infrastructure, and more angry souls ready to join the next terror group to pop up. It would surely lead to another quagmire set of ongoing conflicts for American soldiers. Think: Iraq and Afghanistan, exactly the type of no-win scenarios that many top Pentagon officials now seek to flee. But don’t chalk such feelings up only to a reluctance to get bogged down in yet one more war-on-terror quagmire. These days, the Pentagon is also increasingly obsessed with preparations for another type of war in another locale entirely: a high-intensity conflict with China, possibly in the South China Sea.
After years of slogging it out with guerrillas and jihadists across the Greater Middle East, the U.S. military is increasingly keen on preparing to combat “peer” competitors China and Russia, countries that pose what’s called a “multi-domain” challenge to the United States. This new outlook is only bolstered by a belief that America’s never-ending war on terror has severely depleted its military, something obvious to both Chinese and Russian leaders who have taken advantage of Washington’s extended preoccupation with counterterrorism to modernize their forces and equip them with advanced weaponry.
For the United States to remain a paramount power—so Pentagon thinking now goes—it must turn away from counterterrorism and focus instead on developing the wherewithal to decisively defeat its great-power rivals. This outlook was made crystal clear by then-Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis in testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee in April 2018. “The negative impact on military readiness resulting from the longest continuous period of combat in our nation’s history [has] created an overstretched and under-resourced military,” he insisted. Our rivals, he added, used those same years to invest in military capabilities meant to significantly erode America’s advantage in advanced technology. China, he assured the senators, is “modernizing its conventional military forces to a degree that will challenge U.S. military superiority.” In response, the United States had but one choice: to reorient its own forces for great-power competition. “Long-term strategic competition—not terrorism—is now the primary focus of U.S. national security.”
This outlook was, in fact, already enshrined in the National Defense Strategy of the United States of America, the Pentagon’s overarching blueprint governing all aspects of military planning. Its $750 billion budget proposal for fiscal year 2020, unveiled on March 12th, was said to be fully aligned with this approach. “The operations and capabilities supported by this budget will strongly position the U.S. military for great-power competition for decades to come,” acting Secretary of Defence Shanahan said at the time.
Girding for “High-End” Combat
If such a high-intensity war were to break out, Pentagon leaders suggest, it would be likely to take place simultaneously in every domain of combat—air, sea, ground, space, and cyberspace—and would feature the widespread utilisation of emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and cyberwarfare. To prepare for such multi-domain engagements, the 2020 budget includes $58 billion for advanced aircraft, $35 billion for new warships—the biggest shipbuilding request in more than 20 years—along with $14 billion for space systems, $10 billion for cyberwar, $4.6 billion for AI and autonomous systems, and $2.6 billion for hypersonic weapons. You can safely assume, moreover, that each of those amounts will be increased in the years to come.
Planning for such a future, Pentagon officials envision clashes first erupting on the peripheries of China and/or Russia, only to later extend to their heartland expanses (but not, of course, America’s). As those countries already possess robust defensive capabilities, any conflict would undoubtedly quickly involve the use of front-line air and naval forces to breach their defensive systems—which means the acquisition and deployment of advanced stealth aircraft, autonomous weapons, hypersonic cruise missiles, and other sophisticated weaponry. In Pentagon-speak, these are called anti-access/area-defence (A2/AD) systems.
As it proceeds down this path, the Department of Defence is already considering future war scenarios. A clash with Russian forces in the Baltic region of the former Soviet Union is, for instance, considered a distinct possibility. So the U.S. and allied NATO countries have been bolstering their forces in that very region and seeking weaponry suitable for attacks on Russian defences along that country’s western border.
Such Pentagon scenarios essentially assume that a conflict with China would initially erupt in the waters of the South China Sea or in the East China Sea near Japan and Taiwan. U.S. strategists have considered these two maritime areas America’s “first line of defence” in the Pacific since Admiral George Dewey defeated the Spanish fleet in 1898 and the U.S. seized the Philippines. Today, USINDOPACOM remains the most powerful force in the region with major bases in Japan, Okinawa, and South Korea. China, however, has visibly been working to erode American regional dominance somewhat by modernizing its navy and installing along its coastlines short- and medium-range ballistic missiles, presumably aimed at those U.S. bases.
Under a starry sky, U.S. Navy fighter jets catapulted off the aircraft carrier’s deck and flew north over the darkened waters of the northern Arabian Sea, a unmistaken signal to Iran that the foremost symbol of the American military’s global reach is back in its neighborhood, perhaps to stay.
The USS Abraham Lincoln, with its contingent of Navy destroyers and cruisers and a fighting force of about 70 aircraft, is the centerpiece of the Pentagon’s response to what it calls Iranian threats to attack U.S. forces or commercial shipping in the Persian Gulf region. In recent years, there has been no regular U.S. aircraft carrier presence in the Middle East.
U.S. officials have said that signs of heightened Iranian preparations to strike U.S. and other targets in the waters off Iran as well as in Iraq and Yemen in late April emerged shortly after the Trump administration announced it was clamping down further on Iran’s economy by ending waivers to sanctions on buyers of Iranian crude oil.
The administration went a step beyond that on Friday, announcing penalties that target Iran’s largest petrochemical company.
On Saturday, the Lincoln was steaming in international waters east of Oman and about 200 miles from Iran’s southern coastline. One month after its arrival in the region, the Lincoln has not entered the Persian Gulf, and it’s not apparent that it will. The USS Gonzalez, a destroyer that is part of the Lincoln strike group, is operating in the Gulf.
The Lincoln’s contingent of 44 Navy F-18 Super Hornets are flying a carefully calibrated set of missions off the carrier night and day, mainly to establish a visible U.S. “presence.” As an apparent result, Iran seems to have tinkered with its preparation for potential attacks, Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie, the head of Central Command, said Saturday.
He said on Friday that he thinks Iran had been planning some sort of attack on shipping or U.S. forces in Iraq. Two other officials, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive details, said Iran was at a high state of readiness in early May with its ships, submarines, surface-to-air missiles and drone aircraft.
“It is my assessment that if we had not reinforced, it is entirely likely that an attack would have taken place by now,” McKenzie said.
In an interview on the bridge, or command station, of the Lincoln with reporters who are traveling with him throughout the Gulf region, McKenzie said the carrier has made an important difference.
“We believe they are recalculating. They have to take this into account as they think about various actions that they might take. So we think this is having a very good, stabilizing effect,” he said.
“They are looking hard at the carrier because they know we are looking hard at them,” McKenzie added.
He said earlier in the week that he had not ruled out requesting additional defensive forces to bolster the deterrence of Iran, whose economy is being squeezed hard by U.S. sanctions after President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. last year from the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers. The U.S. already has announced plans to send 900 additional troops to the Mideast and extend the stay of 600 more as tens of thousands of others also are on the ground across the region.
McKenzie also requested, and received, four Air Force long-range B-52 bombers. They were in the region 51 hours after being summoned and were flying missions three days later. They are now operating from al-Udeid air base in Qatar. There had been no U.S. bomber presence in the Gulf region since late February.
In an interview Friday after speaking with B-52 pilots at al-Udeid, McKenzie said it’s hard to know whether that gap in a bomber presence had emboldened the Iranians.
Speaking at a May 15 “Nakba Day” rally in the Gaza Strip, Hamas political leader Fathi Hammad claimed that the final hours, months and years before the liberation of Palestine have come.
Palestine will be liberated in “no more than a few years,” he said.
He addressed the “Zionist enemy,” saying: “The day of your slaughter, extermination and annihilation has drawn near. … You should search for a place in Europe, in hell, or in the ocean or the Bermuda Triangle because there is no place for you in [here] or anywhere.”
Hammad’s speech aired on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas/Gaza).
HAMAS AND ISLAMIC JIHAD INCREASE MISSILE COUNT TO 10,000, NEW MILITIA FORMED TO ATTACK NORTHERN ISRAEL
Israel’s Chief of Staff Lt, Gen. Aviv Kochavi said on Friday, June 8: “The slowdown of Hamas-instigated violence on the Gaza border, including the incendiary balloons, is the outcome of an equation reached with Hamas on the operational level and we have decided to give it a chance.” He was talking to heads of the southern communities on the eve of the Shavuot festival.
The general was understood to have introduced a new formula, whereby the IDF would be running statistics on the terrorist attacks coming from the Gaza Strip, including single rocket shots, riots on the Gaza border and incendiary balloons. If they exceed the figures registered with the high command and the defense minister, Israel would again restrict the Palestinian fishing zone off the Gaza shore from 15 miles to 10 miles and maybe retaliate in other ways.
Kochavi had nothing to say about the Palestinian terrorist organization’s perception of this “equation.” The most important missing factor in his words was the area it covers: It is apparently limited to the Gaza Strip, whereas DEBKAfile’s intelligence and military sources reveal that Hamas’ live-wire military leader Yahya Sinwar is deep in a venture to expand its turf much further afield, while also in advanced negotiations for more Iranian funding and a large injection of arms.
Using the Israeli-Hamas “equation’ with Israel as a respite, intensive four-cornered discussions are secretly underway among Tehran, Syrian president Bashar Assad, Gaza and Hizballah’s Beirut leaders for Hamas, firstly, to extend recognition to the Assad regime in Damascus and open an embassy there under the Hamas flag. If these discussions mature into an accord, Hamas will boast its first diplomatic mission in an Arab capital.
Our sources add that this accord will further cover the establishment in Syria of a new Palestinian militia some 3,000 strong, designed for launching attacks into northern Israel. This militia will operate under the joint command of Hizballah and Hamas’ military arm, the Ezz e-Din Al-Qassam, in close teamwork with Hamas-Gaza.
Meanwhile, neither Egypt nor Israel has been able to prevent Hamas and the Islamic Jihad from boosting their arsenal to approximately 10,000 rockets – either by local production or smuggled in by sea and through Egyptian Sinai.
It is worth noting that Gen. Kochavi did not cite a timeline for the “equation” he unveiled on Friday; nor what can be expected when it runs out. Neither did he refer to the monetary price exacted by Hamas or who was putting it up. Qatar after forking out generous sums for months has applied the brakes; the pauses between one payment and the next are growing longer.
Hamas, however, is looking in a new direction for a source of cash, aiming to gain control of the $360 million in international funds earmarked for rebuilding the Gaza Strip. The purse strings for this fund are held by the UN special coordinator for Middle East peace Nickolay Mladinov.
GAZA VIOLENCE CAUSING FAMILIES TO LEAVE SOUTHERN ISRAEL
At least 10 families living in Gaza border communities have decided to leave the area following the repeated rounds of violence between Israel and terror groups in the Hamas-run coastal enclave, Channel 13 reported on Friday.
According to the report, the families arrived in the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional council last year and have told the council that they will be leaving this summer due the security situation.
“These are dramatic numbers that we haven’t seen this Operation Protective Edge,” the report continued, adding that there is a fear that more families will follow suit and leave the area.
Approximately 70,000 Israelis reside the over 50 communities in the Gaza border area and there was a marked increase of people moving to the area over the past five years following Operation Protective Edge in 2016.
But over the past year there has been 10 rounds of violent conflict, causing residents to interrupt their daily lives and remain close to bomb shelters since they have some 15 seconds to find shelter from rocket and mortar fire. The last round of violence in early May saw over 700 rockets fired towards southern Israel and killed four civilians.
The Great Return March border protests began on March 30th and have seen over half a million people violently demonstrating along the security fence demanding an end to the 12-year long blockade, congregating at points along the border range between several thousand to 45,000 every Friday.
Demonstrators have been burning tires and hurling stones and marbles as well as other types of violence which include the throwing of grenades and improvised explosive devices (including military-grade explosives) towards troops. Ball bearings and other projectiles are also launched by high-velocity slingshots towards forces along the border.
Palestinians have also been launching kites, balloons and condoms carrying molotov cocktails or improvised explosive devices, have posed a major problem for Israel since the beginning of the March of Return protests along the Gaza border fence.
The devices have caused over 2,000 separate fires resulting in over 35,000 dunams (approximately 8,500 acres) being burnt. According to the IDF, this has included over 13,000 dunams (approximately 3,200 acres) of nature reserves, and over 11,000 dunams (approximately 2,700 acres) of forestry.
On Friday IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi met with the heads of the Gaza communities and told them that the relative calm along the border has been proving effective, with a decrease in incendiary aerial balloons launched towards southern Israel and a decrease in violent Great Return March riots along the fence.
”The reduction in the number of balloons and the decrease in the number of violent incidents on the fence is not coincidental,” Kochavi was quoted by Mako as saying, adding that while the IDF “prefers to give this arrangement a chance…we cannot let the balloon terror continue.”
In recent weeks the IDF has responded by incendiary balloons by reducing the fishing zone off of the Gaza coast instead of by striking those who launch them. On Thursday Israel reduced the fishing zone off the Gaza from 15 nautical miles back to 10 miles after four incendiary balloons caused fires in southern Israel, a day after it had expanded it to 15 miles.
At first blush the results in Germany for the EU elections looked like nothing of significance had happened. The media trumpeted the regression of the right. Alternative for Germany’s (AfD) 11% after polling as high as 18% in 2018 made it look like Angela Merkel had weathered the storm against her chancellorship from the right.
But, in doing so, she opened herself up to attack from the Left. The combined results for the ruling coalition in Germany was only 45% with the Social Democrats (SPD) under-performing even their recent bad polling data, garnering just 15.8% of the vote.
It was the loss for the SPD in Bremen which voted for both the EU parliament but its own, however, that was most disturbing as the SPD lost to the Merkel’s CDU by a point. This was the first loss in any state-wide election for the SPD in Bremen in 73 years.
That prompted two big moves in the wake of the results. Merkel supposedly ‘un-retired’ as head of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and, more importantly, Andrea Nehles stepped down as the leader of the Social Democrats.
This has now thrown the future of the current Grand Coalition into doubt.
And the question now is whether it can survive until the next election in 2021. The recent spate of speculation on this after Nehles’ resignation lead me to believe there may be something pushing for this behind the scenes.
The Greens have surged to more than 20% and what looked early on as a protest vote over another four years of the SPD rubber-stamping Merkel’s EU-first policies has taken on greater significance. These EU election results imply that the SPD may be, like the Tories in the U.K., in terminal decline.
Greens in Germany are of the most hawkish variety. They are the most militant about bringing about societal change through Progressive politics and the SPD have played footsie, in their eyes, with Merkel for too long. These results will only make them more strident.
And it will have knock-on effects in the EU as well.
So, like I said in my last article, the center isn’t holding in Europe. And the days of centrist politicians like Merkel are numbered. Grand coalitions that stand for nothing except care-taking the advancement of the European project were the big losers last month from both sides of the political aisle.
The political radicals will now have a far greater say and influence over the course of Europe. And it starts with the rise of the Greens in Germany. They have held above the 16% level now for months and just came through a major election above that critical level.
This is now a social movement in Germany, not a protest vote. And that could easily bring down the Merkel government.

ISIS plotted to smuggle terrorists into the US over the Mexico border to launch terror attacks, captured jihadi reveals
A CAPTURED ISIS fighter has made a chilling confession detailing how the terrorist group planned on exploiting vulnerabilities in the US border with Mexico to take advantage of smuggling routes and to target financial institutions.
Abu Henricki, a Canadian with dual Trinidadian citizenship, said that he was sought out to attack the US from a route starting in Central America.
The ISIS fighter was interviewed last month – together with over 160 ISIS defectors and returnees – by research group the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism.
“We learned that, indeed, there was at least one ISIS plot for their cadres to travel from Syria to penetrate the US southern border by infiltrating migration routes.
In video footage of Henricki’s confession, he opens up about a plot in which he says he and other Trinidadians were invited in late 2016 to attempt to penetrate the US borders to mount financial attacks.
He explains: “The emni [ISIS intelligence arm] was inviting us.
“They, what they will have, what they wanted to do, basically, is they wanted to do financial attacks. Financial attacks to cripple the [US] economy.
“Apparently, they have the contacts or whatever papers they can get to a false ID, false passports [to send me out for this kind of attack].
“They have their system of doing it. So that’s maybe the way that I could have gone out with other individuals.”
He adds: “It wasn’t me alone. They were sending you to Puerto Rico and from Puerto Rico [to Mexico].
“They were going to move me to the Mexican side [of the US southern border] via Puerto Rico.
“This was mastermind[ed] by a guy in America. Where he is, I do not know.
“That information, the plan came from someone from the New Jersey state from America.
