Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a] these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

——————————————-

                             

HOW SHOULD I PRAY?

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/how-should-i-pray
QUESTION:    This question has probably been posed before, but could you advise us HOW we are supposed to pray? I hear of people saying they spent hours praying, etc. Well, I don’t have that long of an attention span. Usually, my prayers are ongoing throughout the day whenever I have a moment or I am just contemplating something. I pray every night, but to be honest, I often fall asleep while praying. Is that bad? I don’t think so, but I don’t want to be rude to God!
I know that we are to have a conversation with God and that is my method. When I try to sit down or kneel down and pray for an extended period of time, I lose focus as I get too caught up in the process of praying and therefore, I always think I am doing something wrong. However, as you know, there are some that think we are supposed to dedicate an hour a day, etc. to praying. Is there a Biblical basis to this? If so, HOW are we supposed to pray? If God already knows what we need are we just supposed to spend an hour or two thanking Him over and over again? I don’t want to sound flippant, I am just trying to grow and learn where I can.
ANSWER:    I go by Paul’s admonition to “pray without ceasing” from 1 Thes. 5:17. I interpret that to be an ongoing conversation such as one would have with a constant companion/adviser. And for years, I’ve used prayers of thanksgiving to help me fall asleep. I find that it’s a good way to relax and put things that are bothering me into their proper perspective and I’m often asleep before my prayers are finished. When I was a business consultant, I also used my morning drive time to pray. It was about 30 minutes long and worked out well. It was a good way to open the day’s conversation and became an important part of my daily routine.
Years ago, I was taught an informal outline for my morning prayers that has always worked well for me. It’s an acronym based on the Book of Acts. A = adoration. I begin by reminding God just how big and wonderful I think He is. I often quote passages from Scripture I’ve memorized that help convey this idea. C = confession. I confess anything that may have put me out of fellowship and am immediately forgiven and restored. (1 John 1:9) T = Thanksgiving. I express my gratitude for everything He’s done for me. S = supplication. Finally, I ask for the things that I want and need from Him.
Using this outline helps me maintain a proper relationship with God, instead of just running to Him every time I need something and blurting out my list.
While it’s true that God already knows what things we want, it’s also true that He commands us to pray for them. Many believe that He’s chosen prayer as His way of working through us. If so, and it seems to be, then prayer is our most important activity during the day.
 

WHO SHOULD WE PRAY TO? FOLLOW UP

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/pray-follow/
QUESTION:    Re: Who Should We Pray To? You responded with “We can pray in the Spirit and in His power”. Please explain “pray in the Spirit”. My local church preaches that this is tongues but reading the verses they use in context doesn’t make sense. When I throw out those verses used out of context I am left with Ephesians 6:18 and Jude 20. Both mention “praying in the spirit” but do not instruct on what it is. I do not understand how they can build a doctrine on this when there is so little instruction. Surely if tongues is important as it is preached the Holy Spirit would have put instruction on it in the word. I can hardly turn a page without being told how to walk in love, live by faith but not much on “praying in the spirit” Am I missing something here?
ANSWER:    If you study Paul’s teaching on the gift of tongues, which takes up most of 1 Cor. 14, you will see it consists primarily of the supernatural ability to speak an earthly language you haven’t learned, which someone can interpret (translate) so the people around you can understand the message the Lord has empowered you to convey. Its value is that both you and the interpreter are repeating a message that clearly has its origin in the mind of God.
Praying in the Spirit does not fit this description because as practiced in some parts of the church it consists of sounds that the person praying cannot understand and no one on earth can interpret.
I believe praying in the Spirit is a matter of subordinating your spirit to God’s so He can put words that you can understand into your mouth, showing you how to pray in a situation where you need His guidance in praying for someone or something. Therefore, praying in the Spirit should be understood as praying by the leading of the Spirit, and according to His will, which is not the same as praying in tongues.

TENSIONS RISE WITH RUSSIA AS US COUNTERS MOVES AROUND GLOBE

http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=3095
U.S. and Russian tensions are picking up, and several geopolitical moves have been made in the past week with much of the press mum on what’s happening between the U.S. and Russia over Venezuela and Ukraine.
Last week, the Russians sent troops into Venezuela with the speculatory number being a total of 100 soldiers deployed. Auspiciously, immediately after this, the U.S. Air Force deployed six nuclear-capable B-52 bombers to Europe to send a “message to Russia,” Real Clear Defense reported.
The U.S. Air Force is carrying out “theater integration and flight training” out of London’s RAF Fairford station, which will help prepare airmen to use the base as their forward operating location for bombers in Europe, the Air Force said last week.
“Training with joint partners, allied nations and other U.S. Air Force units contributes to our ready and postured forces and enables us to build enduring and strategic relationships necessary to confront a broad range of global challenges,” the Air Force said.
Meanwhile, simultaneously the U.S. Air Forces Pacific also launched B-52 bombers from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, Air Force Times reported.
The Kremlin accused the U.S. of escalating tensions by flying its B-52 bombers near its border. Russia’s Defense Ministry further claimed it prepared two Sukhoi SU-27 fighter jets to intercept a U.S. aircraft before it changed its direction, Reuters reported.
Trump administration national security adviser John Neocon Bolton threatened Russia for sending in troops into Venezuela, stating that any move to expand operations there would be considered a “direct threat” to international peace, Reuters reported.
“We strongly caution actors external to the Western Hemisphere against deploying military assets to Venezuela, or elsewhere in the Hemisphere, with the intent of establishing or expanding military operations,” White House national security adviser John Bolton said in a statement.
“We will consider such provocative actions as a direct threat to international peace and security in the region,” Bolton added.
Almost immediately after this, Russia flew its own Tu-154M aircraft over several military installations in California and Nevada such as Edwards Air Force Base and Fort Irwin National Training Center, including Area 51, as part of the Treaty on Open Skies agreement, The Drive reported.
This also came after U.S. President Donald Trump’s loose-lipped statement that “Russia has to get out” of Venezuela and “all options are open” in ensuring that Russia withdraws from the socialist nation. It also followed comments just one day after Elliot Abrams, Washington’s envoy to Venezuela, threatened that “the Russians will pay a price” for allegedly helping prepare the country with S-300 surface-to-air missile defense systems for combat.
The Russian government response is that U.S. plans for regime change; Moscow has been thwarted since it has sent in its military, and the U.S. is nervous, MSN reported.
Other things to note: both Russia and the U.S. have pulled out of the INF Treaty which governs the two nations not using nuclear weaponry. The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, banned land-based nuclear missiles in Europe during the Cold War. 
This followed a month after with Russia running a drill flying two of its nuclear-capable strategic Tu-160 bombers over the Caribbean Sea and Venezuela during a 10-hour training mission, presumably in response to U.S. threats to withdraw from the treaty with Russia, WSBTV reported. The U.S. claimed that Russia’s 9M729 cruise missile breaches the INF treaty, Activist Post reported.
Russia also tested its “Avangard” hypersonic weapons and an underwater nuclear-capable drone that Activist Post reported Putin had teased.
Russia further plans to build a base and a military presence in La Orchila, Venezuela, also presumably in response to the U.S. suggesting it will pull out of the INF treaty,  according to TASS.
According to military envoys, Russian authorities have made a decision (and Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro did not object) to deploy strategic aircraft to one of Venezuela’s islands in the Caribbean Sea, which has a naval base and a military airfield. 
Ten years ago, Russian experts and Armed Forces commanders had already visited the island of La Orchila, located 200 kilometers northeast of Caracas. Venezuelan laws prohibit the setup of military bases in the country, but a temporary deployment of warplanes is possible.
“It is the right idea to include Venezuela in long-range aviation missions,” military expert Colonel Shamil Gareyev told the newspaper, adding that it was also economically reasonable. “Our strategic bombers will not only not have to return to Russia every time, but also won’t perform aerial refueling while on a patrol mission in the Americas. Our Tu-160 aircraft arrive to their base in Venezuela, conduct flights, execute their missions and are then replaced on a rotating basis. This is how it should be done,” he said.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo responded to the past situation by stating in an angry rant that the drills were a waste of public funds. “Russia’s government has sent bombers halfway around the world to Venezuela,” Pompeo said on Twitter. “The Russian and Venezuelan people should see this for what it is: two corrupt governments squandering public funds, and squelching liberty and freedom while their people suffer.”
In response to the U.S. pulling out of the INF treaty, Russia followed suit one day later in what many are deeming a race to acquire new weapons, or Cold War 2.0.
Russia’s president Vladimir Putin issued a televised statement threatening the U.S. by stating that “Russia would build weapons previously banned under the treaty and would no longer initiate talks with the United States on any matters related to nuclear arms control.” However, the country stated they would not deploy those weapons unless America did first.
“I would like to draw your attention to the fact that we must not and will not let ourselves be drawn into an expensive arms race,” Putin told Russian ministers. “Money to build the new missiles,” he added, “will come from the existing defense budget.”
“Our response will be symmetrical. Our American partners announced that they are suspending their participation in the I.N.F. Treaty, and we are suspending it too. They said that they are engaged in research, development and design work, and we will do the same,” Putin said.
It’s also further worth noting that Putin recently stated that the threat of nuclear war should not be underestimated as tensions have risen between NATO countries and Russia within the past few months. Putin added that U.S. withdrawal from the treaty could spur “global catastrophe” and that he hopes “common sense will prevail.” (This was before the U.S. pulled out of the INF treaty.)
Russia appears to be making preparations for potential war. Last year, a Russian state-owned television station warned that some Americans are preparing for a coming war with Moscow, explaining to the country’s residents how to stock their bunkers with water and basic necessities in case a war breaks out.
This is visibly seen by Russia suggesting that it will build bases in the Caribbean and build up its existing Arctic strongholds.
“We’ll finish building infrastructure in 2019 to accommodate air defense radar units and aviation guidance points on the Sredny and Wrangel Islands, and on Cape Schmidt” in the Russian Arctic, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said according to France 24.
Activist Post previously reported that U.S. and Ukraine were in “close discussion” with Washington to supply another cache of lethal weapons for Kiev’s fight in eastern Ukraine, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin told reporters Nov. 18, a day after a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Washington. 
This came after Moscow rammed and shot at Ukrainian Navy ships allegedly for invading its territorial waters in the Kerch Strait near Crimea, hitting two vessels and injuring six crew members.
The U.S. and international committee members condemned the action by Russia, “as an act of aggression” stating the country “violated international maritime law.”
In October, President Trump cited China’s potential expansion as a reason the United States should consider quitting the INF treaty.
“If Russia’s doing it and if China’s doing it, and we’re adhering to the agreement, that’s unacceptable,” Trump said after a rally in Nevada.
The war drums keep beating louder and louder with no signs of slowing down that growing rhythm, which if we aren’t careful could lead to a global catastrophe.

U.S. WAR PREPARATIONS – MISSILE DEFENSE FRAMEWORK TO COUNTER HYPERSONIC MISSILE ATTACKS

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Army Rolls Out Missile Defense Framework To Counter Hypersonic Missile Attacks
In response to Russian and Chinese war threats, the U.S. Army debuted its new Air and Missile Defense framework, or AMD, on March 27 that will pursue multimission units and counter hypersonic missile or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attacks, the Army’s Space and Missile Defense Commander told Defense News in an interview during the Association of the U.S. Army’s Global Force Symposium.
Lt. Gen. James Dickinson said AMD would provide synchronized efforts to execute multi-domain operations, defend the country for emerging threats and succeed in future operational environments.
Top objectives of the new strategy include ensuring AMD forces can protect ground forces and defend critical assets on the modern battlefield and in the homeland. AMD forces are designed to help “create windows of superiority” in the air, so those infantry units have the ability to commandeer enemy territory successfully, Defense News said.
AMD forces align with the Army’s 2028 goal of modernized forces executing multidomain operations.
“Our vision is that the AMD force of 2028 will provide the combatant commanders with a flexible, agile, and integrated AMD force capable of executing multi-domain operations and defending the homeland, regional joint and coalition forces, and critical assets in support of unified land operations,” said Lt. Gen. Dickinson. “To do this, we will execute four lines of effort. We will modernize and develop AMD capabilities; build AMD capacity for multi-domain operations; provide trained and ready AMD forces; and maintain forward presence and build allied and partner capacity.”
AMD also erects the next generation Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense, or LTAMD, sensor as the replacement for the MIM-104 Patriot missile system.
The Army will continue developing Indirect Fire Protection Capability, or IFPC, that provides short-range defense against rockets, artillery, and mortars as well as hypersonic missiles and drones.
The service is also developing Short Range Air Defense, or M-SHORAD, that addresses an important capability gap in the European theater.
The strategy is expected to add directed-energy weapon systems to aircraft and ground vehicles to protect ground forces against rocket, artillery, mortar and drone threats.
In the last five years, the threat of hypersonic missiles and drone attacks have sent American war planners back to the drawing boards. With AMD, the framework is now in place to develop a missile system that can not just protect American allies and troops on the modern battlefield, but protect critical assets in the homeland in the event of war.

RUMORS OF WAR: NUCLEAR POWERS CONVERGE ON VENEZUELA – CHINA NOW SENDING TROOPS

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
If You Are Not Paying Attention, the World-Ending Storm of a Third World War Is Gathering in Venezuela
At first, the US’s aggressive position on Venezuela seemed uncomplicated. Troops were quickly on the mind of the top hawk in D.C.—White House National Security Adviser John Bolton, the man who, in the first years of the 2000s, played a key role in leading the US into an adventure—the second Iraq war—that proved to be disastrous, and placed American imperial power in a terminal crisis (the collapse of the Project for the New American Century). The fickle public had forgotten about all that. Bolton, a member of the “old gang” (Cheney, Rummy, Wolfowitz), could resume the war drumming he loved so much. The press could be expected to amplify it. And old allies would fall into line. Venezuela has oil, a socialist government in turmoil, and pro-American opponents who are ready to exploit the oil and turmoil. 
Then the Russians arrived and began supporting the socialist leader that the US wants to oust, Nicolas Maduro. And now a team from the largest standing army in the world, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, have, according to Al-Masdar News, been deployed to a crisis that’s becoming more and more dangerous. What this means is that three major nuclear-weapon countries are converging on Venezuela.
Al-Masdar News says it directly:
These moves by the Russian and Chinese armed forces appear to be a powerplay against the U.S. administration, who is actively pushing to remove Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro from power.

But what would trigger a third world war? Simply the escalating costs of maintaining the key capitalist directive…We can expect this situation to be exacerbated by the world-historical development at this conjecture, which is the transition of political/economic power from Washington, D.C./New York City to Beijing/Shanghai. What the history of capitalism makes very clear is that such transitions (the Dutch to the British, the British to the US) are not gradual and peaceful, but always accelerated by war.

RUMORS OF WAR: U.S. VS RUSSIA

Path To WW3? Russia Flies Jets Over U.S. Military Bases After Threats From Trump; Bolton To Get Out of Venezuela; NATO Drills In Europe

Activist Post previously reported that U.S. and Ukraine were in “close discussion” with Washington to supply another cache of lethal weapons for Kiev’s fight in eastern Ukraine, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin told reporters Nov. 18, a day after a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Washington. This came after Moscow rammedand shot at Ukrainian Navy ships allegedly for invading its territorial waters in the Kerch Strait near Crimea, hitting two vessels and injuring six crew members.
The U.S. and international committee members condemned the action by Russia, “as an act of aggression” stating the country “violated international maritime law.”
In October, President Trump cited China’s potential expansion as a reason the United States should consider quitting the INF treaty.
“If Russia’s doing it and if China’s doing it, and we’re adhering to the agreement, that’s unacceptable,” Trump said after a rally in Nevada.
Those war drums keep beating louder and louder with no signs of slowing down that growing rhythm, which if we aren’t careful could lead to a “global catastrophe.” As for Venezuela, it’s up to the will of the people; hate or love Maduro it’s not my fight or yours, it’s theirs. But one thing is for sure: a person who proclaims himself to be president (Juan Guaidó) without a single vote from the people and has an extensive history of involvement with regime change trainers shouldn’t be president — that’s certainly not a healthy way to view democracy. All three superpowers — Russia, China and the U.S. have financial and military interests in Venezuela.

THINGS TO COME: TRUMP’S GOLAN HEIGHTS DECLARATION – A HARBINGER OF LARGE-SCALE MIDDLE EAST CLASH

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Trump’s Golan Move is Harbinger of a Large-Scale Middle East Clash
Trump’s Golan Heights declaration has prompted growing concerns among the regional players. Speaking to Sputnik, Turkish scholars and Iraqi Kurdistan politicians explained that the US Golan decision may affect Turkey, Iran and Iraq and translate into nothing short of a large-scale conflict in the region.
Donald Trump’s unilateral decision to recognise Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, seized by Tel Aviv from Syria back in 1967 and formally annexed by Israel in 1981, is continuing to stir fears of a further escalation of tensions in the Middle East.
“Having taken advantage of the US decision, Israel will be able to expand its sphere of influence in the territories it occupied,” Gokhan Bozbas, a coordinator at the Centre for Middle Eastern Strategic Studies (ORSAM), told Sputnik Turkey, adding that Trump’s Golan declaration had “violated the UN resolution adopted by the international community and unilaterally supported the occupation”.
According to Bozbas, the US move obviously played into the hands of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who sought to come out on top in the upcoming 9 April Knesset elections.
For his part, Yasin Atlioglu, a researcher at the 21st Century Turkey Institute, warned against an all-out regional conflict prompted by Trump’s Middle Eastern policies.
Having recalled that Washington’s Golan move was preceded by the recognition of Jerusalem, the researcher stressed that Trump’s pro-Israel policy was by no means limited to the Golan and Jerusalem.
“Given the toughened anti-Iranian sanctions, the situation in Syria, as well as sanctions imposed against the Lebanese Hezbollah, Trump’s decision on the Golan can be seen as a harbinger of a large-scale clash in the region,” Atlioglu said. “Chaos and instability have engulfed the Middle East, and Trump’s decision will further aggravate this situation.”
According to the researcher, the international community should have voiced its condemnation of Trump’s move much more resolutely. He noted that the precedent was fraught with severe risks as other states may now follow the US suit and try to legitimise their attempts to occupy foreign territories.
“Trump’s decision signals injustice and disrespect towards the Muslim world. It will have impact on other countries in the region, namely, Turkey, Iran and Iraq,” he concluded.
Speaking at an election rally in Istanbul on 26 March, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan denounced Washington’s decision concerning the Golan. He stressed that the US had neither jurisdiction nor right to give the Golan to Israel and vowed to bring the Golan issue to the United Nations.
In an interview with Sputnik, Iraqi Kurdistan politicians echoed Turkey’s concerns.
“Many countries, including Turkey, have expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision of the United States,” Aydin Maruf, a representative of the Iraqi Turkmen Front and member of the Iraqi Kurdistan Parliament (IKP), said. “We fully share Turkey’s position on this issue. The Golan Heights belong to Syria, and Syrian Turkmen traditionally reside there. America’s decision on the Golan Heights contradicts the norms of international law.”
According to Maruf, Trump’s move has signalled Washington’s support for Israel’s illegal occupation. Having said that the pro-Israel move will further destabilise the region, the parliamentarian underscored that “all decisions related to the territories must be made by people living in these territories”.
Muhsin Doski, a member of the Democratic Party of Kurdistan (KDP), opined that Washington was pursuing its own political interests by recognising Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan.
He lambasted the Trump administration for its double standard approach referring to its unwillingness to supporting the Kurdish independence referendum which was held on 25 September 2017.
Doski presumed that Trump’s move may further escalate tensions in the region, which does not correspond to the interests of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).
Following Washington’s transferal of the US Embassy to Jerusalem in May 2018, Trump announced that the US would recognise Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan on 21 March 2019. Four days, later the US president signed a presidential proclamation on the Golan Heights’ recognition. Russia, Turkey, as well as a number of Arab and European states, condemned Trump’s move, while the UN reiterated that Washington’s Golan decision had no legitimacy in the eyes of the international community.

RUSSIA POSITIONS ITSELF AS ‘FINAL JUDGE’ IN SYRIA AMID ESCALATING ISRAELI-IRANIAN TENSIONS

By Yaakov Lappin – https://www.jns.org/russia-positions-itself-as-final-judge-in-syria-amid-high-israeli-iranian-tensions/
Moscow has also attempted to play the role of mediator between Israel and Iran, seeking to douse the shadow war raging between them on Iranian soil. Israel, for its part, is determined to disrupt Iran’s plan to turn Syria into a war front against it.
The flurry of meetings between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin likely reflect urgent developments in Syria that relate to Iranian activities.
The meetings come in the shadow of recent reports of a major Israeli airstrike on March 28, targeting an Iranian weapons’ warehouse near the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, which reportedly resulted in large blasts and casualties.
Russia leads a pro-Assad military coalition in Syria, of which Iranian forces are a central part of. Yet it also maintains a deconfliction channel with Israel to avoid unintended clashes between its air force and the Israeli Air Force, both of which are active in the Syrian arena.
Putin has also attempted to play the role of mediator between Israel and Iran, seeking to douse the shadow war raging between them on Iranian soil. Israel, for its part, is determined to disrupt Iran’s plan to turn Syria into a war front against it.
Netanyahu will fly to Moscow on Thursday for a meeting with Putin, just five days before Israel’s April 9 elections. On April 1, Netanyahu and Putin held a phone conversation to talk about “military cooperation issues,” according to the Kremlin, as well as “pressing bilateral issue,” and “the situation in the Middle East region.”
On Feb. 27, the two leaders met in Moscow to discuss Syria. Netanyahu said during that meeting, the two sides reached an agreement on how to coordinate between the militaries. They also apparently agreed on a goal of getting “foreign troops” to leave Syria, according to Netanyahu.
While Russia will not be able to satisfy everyone, it does understand that it will need to leave each side with “half of its desires,” Professor Uzi Rabi, director of the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies at Tel Aviv University, told JNS.
To achieve this, Moscow gets every actor to spell out “what is really important to it, and here, Israel has an opportunity to define the range and perimeter of Iran’s actions in Syria,” he added. “In general, this is a new situation that the region is not used to. The Russians are managing this game with many bargaining chips, and Israel will have to adapt itself to the new rules of the game.”
IRAN’S ACTIVITIES IN SYRIA ARE TIED TO INTERNAL POWER STRUGGLES
Doron Itzchakov, a research associate at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, and at the Alliance Center for Iranian Studies at Tel Aviv University, agreed that the current situation is good for Moscow.
“The Russian interest is to position itself as the ‘final judge’ in Syria, and this situation, in which Netanyahu runs to Putin and the Iranian side runs to him, is comfortable for them. They are comfortable with being the balancing scales,” he said.
Iran, for its part, will be closely monitoring Israel’s contacts with Russia and adapt its policies in Syria accordingly. “The Iranians will be watching out for Russia’s policy in Syria, to see how they need to change their tactics. Iran has no plan of releasing its grip on Syria, but it changes tactics so as not to lose momentum,” stated Itzchakov.
On recent example of how Iran has adapted its takeover efforts in Syria is by embedding its military personnel and weaponry into sites run by the official Syrian Arab Army. However, that didn’t stop Israel from reportedly striking such targets when it detects them.
Itzchakov stressed that Iran’s decisions in Syria cannot be disconnected from Tehran’s wider, geo-political ambitions or from internal power struggles that are raging inside the Islamic Republic.
He cited a visit in March by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to neighboring Iraq as an example of this linkage. The goal of that visit was to develop an economic corridor to bypass biting American sanctions, said Itzchakov.
Yet the visit also boosted the prestige of Rouhani, who is facing major criticism at home from the rival conservative bloc and the Islamic Republican Guards Corps (IRGC).
“The economic corridor Iran wants in Iraq is tied to its desire for an economic corridor to Lebanon and its ties to Syria. One cannot separate these things,” said Itzchakov.
In addition, Iran has been able to build up armed forces in all of these countries-Iraq, Syria and Lebanon-and has turned them into deeply influential political forces in Iraq and Lebanon. Iran plans to do the same in Syria.
But the element responsible for this activity is mainly the IRGC and General Qasem Soleimani, commander of the overseas Iranian Quds Force unit, which is competing with Iran’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Zarif, for control of Iran’s regional policies, said Itzchakov.
Out of this internal rivalry emerges the story of Iranian activities in Syria, he added. “The IRGC’s power as a decision maker in geo-political, economic and diplomatic areas is rising,” he said.
The internal power struggle is making “Iran more sensitive to Syria,” said Itzchakov. “Even when done in opposition to the popular wishes of the Iranian people, the IRGC makes its own decisions, including in Syria. The IRGC wants to set the agenda.”

CHINA: CONCENTRATION CAMPS, EUGENICS, RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION – THE NEW THIRD REICH

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
China’s Han Superstate: The New Third Reich
  • China’s ruler, Xi Jinping, demands that the five recognized religions — official recognition is a control mechanism — “Sinicize.” The Chinese, as a part of this ruthless and relentless effort, are destroying mosques and churches, forcing devout Muslims to drink alcohol and eat pork, inserting Han officials to live in Muslim homes, and ending religious instruction for minors.
  • In recent years, there have been many ugly portrayals of Africans in Chinese media, and although the skit last year was not the worst, it was striking because the main state broadcaster, by airing it to about 800 million viewers, made it clear Chinese officials think of Africans as both objects of derision and subhuman.
  • Concentration camps, racism, eugenics, ambitions of world domination. Sound familiar?
  • There is a new Third Reich, and it is China.
More than a million people, for no reason other than their ethnicity or religion, are held in concentration camps in what Beijing calls the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and what traditional inhabitants of the area, the Uighurs, say is East Turkestan. In addition to Uighurs, ethnic Kazakhs are also held in these facilities.
Families in this troubled area, shown on maps as the northwestern portion of the People’s Republic of China, are being torn apart. The children of imprisoned Uighur and Kazakh parents are “confined” to “schools” that are separated from the outside by barbed wire and heavy police patrols. They are denied instruction in their own language, forced to learn Mandarin Chinese. The controls are part of a so-called “Hanification” policy, a program of forced assimilation. “Han” is the name of China’s dominant ethnic group.
Because Uighurs and Kazakhs are dying in the camps in considerable numbers, Beijing is building crematoria to eradicate burial traditions while disposing of corpses.
The camps, a crime against humanity, are spreading. China is now building similar facilities, given various euphemistic names such as “vocational training centers,” in Tibet, in China’s southwest.
At the same time, Beijing is renewing its attempt to eliminate religion country-wide. Christians have come under even greater attack across China, as have Buddhists. China’s ruler, Xi Jinping, demands that the five recognized religions — official recognition is a control mechanism — “Sinicize.” The Chinese, as a part of this ruthless and relentless effort, are destroying mosques and churches, forcing devout Muslims to drink alcohol and eat pork, inserting Han officials to live in Muslim homes, and ending religious instruction for minors.
These attempts, which have antecedents in Chinese history, have been intensified since Xi became the Communist Party’s general secretary in November 2012.
At the same time, Xi, far more than his predecessors, has been promoting the concept of a world order ruled by only one sovereign, a Chinese one.
In broad outline, Xi’s vision of the world is remarkably similar to that of the Third Reich, at least before the mass murders.
Concentration camps, racism, eugenics, ambitions of world domination. Sound familiar?
There is a new Third Reich, and it is China.

CHINA – EU ALLIANCE GROWING

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
China’s European Moment Has Arrived
It would be difficult to overstate the importance of Xi Jinping’s visits to Rome, Paris and Monaco last week. In bringing his much-remarked Belt and Road Initiative to the center of Europe, the Chinese president has faced the Continent with the most fundamental question it will have to resolve in coming decades: Where does it stand as a trans–Atlantic partner with the U.S. and — as of Xi’s European tour — the western flank of the Eurasian landmass? The simplicities of the postwar order, to put the point another way, have just begun to pass into history.
In Rome, the populist government of Premier Giuseppe Conte brought Italy into China’s ambitious plan to connect East Asia and Western Europe via a multitude of infrastructure projects stretching from Shanghai to Lisbon and beyond. The memorandum of understanding Xi and Deputy Premier Luigi Di Maio signed calls for joint development of roads, railways, bridges, airports, seaports, energy projects and telecommunications systems. Along with the MoU, Chinese investors signed 29 agreements worth $2.8 billion.
Italy is the first Group of 7 nation to commit to China’s BRI strategy and the first among the European Union’s founding members. It did so two weeks after the European Commission released “EU–China: A Strategic Outlook,” an assessment  of China’s swift arrival in Europe that goes straight to the core of the Continent’s ambivalence. Here is the operative passage in the E.C. report:
There is much in this document to chew upon. One is the mounting concern among EU members and senior officials in Brussels about China’s emergence as a global power. This is natural, providing it does not tip into a contemporary version of the last century’s Yellow Peril. At the same time, the Continent’s leaders are highly resistant to the confrontational posture toward China that Washington urges upon them. This is the wisest course they could possibly choose: It is a strong indicator that Europeans are at last seeking an independent voice in global affairs.
As the westward destination of Xi’s envisioned Belt and Road, Europe’s economic and political relations with China were bound to reach a takeoff point. The accord with Italy, Xi’s European tour and an EU–China summit scheduled to take place in Brussels on April 9 signal that this moment has arrived.

5.6 QUAKE HITS TAIWAN

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Taiwan rattled by 5.6 magnitude quake, no immediate reports of damage: weather bureau
A 5.6 magnitude earthquake struck Taiwan’s southeastern county of Taitung on Wednesday, the island’s weather bureau said, but there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties. 
A Reuters witness said the quake shook buildings in the capital, Taipei. The quake had a depth of 10 km (6 miles) but no other details were immediately available. 
Taiwan, a self-ruled island that China considers its own, lies near the junction of two tectonic plates and is prone to earthquakes. 
More than 100 people were killed in a quake in southern Taiwan in 2016, and some Taiwanese remain scarred by a 7.6 magnitude quake that killed more than 2,000 people in 1999.

WHO: CONGO EBOLA OUTBREAK SPREADING AT FASTEST RATE YET

Congo Ebola outbreak spreading faster than ever: WHO
http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Democratic Republic of Congo’s Ebola outbreak is spreading at its fastest rate yet, eight months after it was first detected, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Monday.
Each of the past two weeks has registered a record number of new cases, marking a sharp setback for efforts to respond to the second biggest outbreak ever, as militia violence and community resistance have impeded access to affected areas.
Less than three weeks ago, the WHO said the outbreak of the hemorrhagic fever was largely contained and could be stopped by September, noting that weekly case numbers had halved from earlier in the year to about 25.
But the number of cases hit a record 57 the following week, and then jumped to 72 last week, said WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier. Previous spikes of around 50 cases per week were documented in late January and mid-November.
More alarmingly, more than half of the Ebola deaths last week occurred outside of treatment centers, according to Congo health ministry data, meaning there is a much greater chance they transmitted the virus to those around them.
“People are becoming infected without access to response measures,” Lindmeier told Reuters.
The current outbreak is believed to have killed 676 people and infected 406 others. Another 331 patients have recovered.

REPORT: YELLOW VESTS ACT 20: VIDEO REPORTS

http://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
Report: Yellow Vests Act 20 (media heavy – loads slowly!)
[The paragraphs below introduce video clips of the various protests]
Act 20 of the Yellow Vests took place on March 30th nationwide in France and happened against the background of last week’s brutal beating of a female protestor in Nice. My reports on Acts 18 and 19 can be read here and hererespectively.
Paris
The demonstration in Paris was focused on housing expulsions, energy cuts, and expensive accommodation. It should be noted that by law in France people cannot be thrown out of their homes before April 1st, since the weather is still cold until Spring arrives. Here is a photo of the brochure I received at the prior protest in Paris on the 23rd advertising Act 20.
There were 2 protest events that took place in parallel, and then eventually merged together: a sanctioned march from Châtelet, and an unsanctioned one from Bastille. When both columns met up there was an almighty cheer, and then everyone marched through the streets up to Trocadéro as a part of the sanctioned march.
But along the way the police cut off the route on the fly, meaning the Yellow Vests had to invent a different way of reaching the end point of the sanctioned march.
Eventually some tempers started to fray and bottles and rocks started to be thrown at the police who accompanied the column. But since it was a sanctioned march the Yellow Vests had to restrain themselves (otherwise the police prefecture will not sign off an application for such a march).
At Trocadéro there were some clashes between Yellow Vests and the police, mainly in the format of glass bottle throwing being answered with flash bangs and tear gas.
But unfortunately the police had already encircled the square and did their usual “squeezing” procedure, which resulted in the Yellow Vests (and I) being forced to leave the area via the metro. Most of the shouting that can be heard in my videos comes from protesting Ghanaians, who were already at Trocadéro before the Yellow Vests came.
What happened next was very interesting, as I spent the next 15 minutes with a group of Yellow Vests, including one of the “leaders” (the person who organised today’s march), on the metro as they tried their best to keep the today’s protest alive.
The police were quick to react to their plans and closed the Place de la République metro station, meaning we all had to quickly leave the metro one stop before and go there by feet. Here is a photo I took of an info screen when I entered the metro in the evening – “On Saturday, March 30th, because of the Yellow Vests protest, certain stops/stations are closed from 08:00”. It means the police have a free hand to shut down parts of the metro whenever they want.
Elsewhere
Of course, protests took place in all major French cities, despite the fact that earlier in the week Macron banned protests in certain quarters of these cities (calling them “dead areas”). In the tweet below a Yellow Vest complains about being searched by the police 5 times just in the morning of March 30th – “It is total repression”, she says.

In Avignon it was reported that the city centre had been closed off, and in order to enter it one must be searched by the police.

When the Yellow Vests went to an area that was “forbidden” the police came down on them.

Conclusion
After what happened during Act 18 (March 16th) in Paris, the Yellow Vests are deliberately letting the media propaganda fade away before giving Macron another “ultimatum”. Hence why Act 20 was, and Acts 21 and 22 will be, calmer in comparison to Act 18 (although of course, banning protests on the Champs-Élysées had an effect). Act 23, however, will be very volatile. I didn’t see any “black block” during Act 20 in Paris, and I don’t think that this is a coincidence. They will surely come out again to “play” for Act 23. Concerning the situation in France in general, things have entered an impasse, with no prominent political figure or party able to offer the Yellow Vests what they want (even Mélenchon). And it must be said, in all fairness, that the Yellow Vests are no closer to obtaining their “Citizens’ Initiative Referendum” system of governance, for its implementation needs, in the very least, the dissolution of the parliament.
But what’s important to remember is that scandals can happen at any moment, as the beating of a 73-year-old woman in Nice showed. And this in many respects struck a strong blow to Macron’s “grand debate” PR stunt. After all, a woman holding a rainbow flag cannot be smeared by the media in the same way that a “black block” member in front of a smashed up Hugo Boss store can.

THE DUPLICITOUS DOUBLE STANDARD OF THE UN TOWARDS ISRAEL

By Sarah N. Stern –http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=3092
There are 194 nations in the world. Out of those, precisely 193 acquired their territory through the use of military force. That is how borders have traditionally been drawn. Most of these campaigns were offensive.
I have asked many military experts, historians and scholars about this, and they have, to a person, told me that there is only one nation in the world who gained territory through the use of force that has been sued, time and time again to relinquish that territory. You guessed it: the state of Israel.
What is so profoundly outrageous about this is that Israel acquired lands in defensive wars. It is not as though Israel is a colonial state that set out to acquire land to enrich itself. Israel acquired the Golan Heights in an act of self-defense when they had been attacked on all sides in the 1967 war, and managed to successfully retain this land in the 1973 war.
Syria is a failed state. We have seen how the eight-year-old brutal Syrian civil war at the hands of Bashar Assad has left at least a half a million of his own people dead, and 5.6 million refugees along with 6.8 million internally displaced persons.
According to a recent article in Commentary by the legal scholar Vivian Bercovici, “Since World War II, the accepted understanding of international law that involves territorial loss during conflict is quite straightforward: The attacking nation may not retain permanently land acquired as a result of armed conflict.”
For those who are objecting to this move: Kindly inform us of with whom, precisely, Israel is supposed to negotiate with? Let’s take a look at the players inside Syria. Bashir Assad of the rump state of Syria? Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, the head of ISIS in the Levant? Qassam Solomeini of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps that works hand in glove with Bashir Assad? Hassan Nasrallah of Hezbollah, who now has approximately several thousand troops in Syria?
The reality on the ground is that the 400 square miles of the Golan Heights is the demarcation line of a Hobbesian state of war of “man against man” and a relatively tranquil, democratic area.
The political reality within Israel is that every Israeli, right, left and center agrees that the Golan Heights is critical for the survival of Israel. General Giora Eiland stated that “There is no solution to Israel’s survival without the retention of the Golan Heights.”
Every Israeli knows that whoever controls the high ground of the Golan Heights controls the security of the area. Most of us have stood on the Heights, and have peered down into Damascus and Beirut. We know it affords a protective shield extending all the way down to Lake Tiberias.
And the Israeli intelligence and military officials up there are the “eyes and ears” for vital intelligence and military information that they willingly share with the United States.
Words matter. By framing the language of the Golan Heights as “Occupied Territory”, it whets the appetite of Israel’s enemies, and indicates to them that this region is still in play.
That is why it is no less than infuriating when 14 nations of the UN Security Council met on Wednesday, at the request of Syria, to condemn America’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
Would any of these distinguished representatives ever subject their own citizens of their nations to the uncertainty of “trading land for peace” if they had such wolves banging at their gates?
As I have written many times in the past, the birth of Israel was supposed to have been the denouement of the age-old problem of anti-Semitism. Instead, it is the focal point for all of the anti-Semites.
And many of them are distinguished representatives wearing suits and ties, casting votes in the United Nations.
