WILL TRUMP’S ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN PEACE PLAN ‘DIVIDE GOD’S LAND?’

Will Trump’s Israeli-Palestinian Peace Plan ‘Divide God’s Land?’

(OPINION) CBN – Around July 1st, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may ask parliament to declare sovereignty over 30 percent of the West Bank, part of Israel’s biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria. David Parsons, an attorney, and VP of the International Christian Embassy of Jerusalem argues that the term “annexation” used by Israeli leaders and others is misleading because Israel is not seizing land.
“They are essentially just asserting their title to something that they already have a right and claim to. The international community recognized 100 years ago at the San Remo Conference in 1920, the League of Nations mandate in 1922 that the Jewish people have a claim to this entire land,” Parsons told CBN News.
US President Donald Trump’s so-called “Deal of the Century” triggered the possible claim to the land. Middle East analyst and author Joel Rosenberg told CBN News, “In President Trump’s peace plan, he’s basically saying, ‘Listen, the Palestinians will get more territory if they accept a state and all the other conditions than they have currently.
But they won’t get all the same territory that they currently want. But about 30 percent of what’s known as the “West Bank,” generally known as “Area C,” will actually go to Israel. And what’s interesting is that President Trump has said, if the Palestinians won’t come to the table right away, Israel can start the process of incorporating this 30 percent – up to 30 percent – into the modern, sovereign State of Israel.” READ MORE:

WE PREACH THE BLESSED HOPE FOR THE FUTURE IN JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOUR

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.
“Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
“And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.”
REV. 14:12
Here Jesus was alluding to the fact that the Doctrine of Eternal Security WILL EXPIRE WITH THE RAPTURE
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  (OF TRIBULATION) 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)

Our Heavenly Body

https://gracethrufaith.com/topical-studies/spiritual-life/heavenly-body/
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you (John 14:2).
Recently I had someone object to my belief that Jesus was referring to our eternal home in the New Jerusalem when He said this. This person’s opinion is that Jesus was talking about our post-resurrection body and he cited 2 Cor. 5:1-2 in support of it.
When I looked up the Greek text of John 14:2, I found that the word rooms (mansions in the KJV) is a translation of a Greek word that means a dwelling, or abode.
To be fair, the word dwelling also appears in some English translations of 2 Cor. 5:2 but it’s translated from a different Greek word. It’s also clear that Paul was speaking metaphorically in 2 Cor. 5 because he referred to our earthly body as a tent (temporary) but our heavenly body as a house (permanent).
For me, the clincher is that in John 14:2 Jesus said He was going to prepare a place for us. The Greek word translated place can mean anything from a marked off space to an inhabited city but is never used to refer to a body. This means Jesus was going to prepare a physical location for us to live in.
I don’t think the person who posted the objection was persuaded to my point of view, and I know I wasn’t persuaded to his, but that’s not the point of this study. What I want to do is explore 2 Cor. 5:1-10 in a little more depth because reading it again reminded me of some really interesting information about what’s in store for us. Let’s take it a verse or two at a time.
AN EARTHLY TENT AND A HEAVENLY HOUSE
For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands (2 Cor. 5:1).
Right away we can see that Paul was using terms for dwelling places to represent our bodies. Most of us don’t live in tents, and even if we do our earthly home does not have to be destroyed before we can go to our heavenly one. But our earthly body, which is the temporary home of our spirit, has to give way to our heavenly body in order for our spirit to receive its permanent home. For most, the earthly body will die and return to dust, and the heavenly body will replace it at the resurrection. But for one group, the earthly body will simply be transformed into the heavenly one at the rapture of the Church (1 Cor. 15:51-53).
Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. (2 Cor. 5:2-3)
When believers die their spirits go directly to be with the Lord (2 Cor. 5:6-8, Phil 1:22-24), while their earthly bodies are buried in the ground and quickly return to dust. At the time of their resurrection, they will be given new heavenly bodies while we who are still living will be changed from mortal to immortal and together we’ll all go with the Lord to His Father’s house (1 Thes. 4:16-17).
In the meantime, these spirits feel like a part of them is missing, as if they are naked (Greek: without a body). They long for the time when they’ll be clothed in their heavenly bodies. I believe this is because we can only experience the full extent of the blessings of our eternal life as physical beings.
For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life (2 Cor. 5:4).
In this verse, Paul added clothing as another metaphor. As physical beings, we don’t look forward to dying because that will be like being naked. What we look forward to is being raptured, because that will be like having our old set of worn out clothing instantly changed into a new and much better set that will never wear out. Richer fabric, perfect fit, extremely comfortable; clothes we have always been meant to wear.

AT UN, ARAB LEAGUE HEAD WARNS OF ‘RELIGIOUS WAR’ IF ISRAEL ANNEXES IN WEST BANK

https://www.timesofisrael.com/un-arab-league-urge-israel-to-abandon-annexation-plans-a-watershed-moment/  By AFP and TOI staff
After Security Council meeting, Pompeo signals US backing for Israeli move; Israel’s envoy says it would be applying sovereignty, not annexing; UN chief warns of ‘watershed moment’
The UN Security Council holds a debate via videoconference on the Middle East, including the Palestinian Question, June 24, 2020 (UN screenshot)
The United Nations, European Union countries, and the Arab League joined Wednesday in calling for Israel to abandon its plans to annex parts of the West Bank, as the Jewish state’s envoy to the international body insisted the step would not stand in the way of peace with the Palestinians.
The calls were made during a UN Security Council video conference on the issue.
It was the last international meeting before July 1, when Israel may begin moving the plan forward.
“We are at a watershed moment,” said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. “If implemented, annexation would constitute a most serious violation of international law. I call on the Israeli government to abandon its annexation plans.”
He reiterated the longstanding goal of a two-state solution with an independent, contiguous, sovereign and viable Palestinian state, with Jerusalem as the capital of both states.
Arab League secretary-general Ahmed Aboul Gheit said annexation “will destroy any prospect for peace in the future” and could ignite “a religious war in and beyond our region.”
“The possible move by the Israeli government to annex parts of the occupied Palestinian territory would constitute, if implemented, a serious threat to regional stability,” he added.

The UN coordinator for the Middle East, Nickolay Mladenov, said annexation “could irrevocably alter the nature of Israeli-Palestinian relations.”
He added: “It risks upending more than a quarter of a century of international efforts in support of a future viable Palestinian state living in peace, security and mutual recognition with the State of Israel.”
Any Israeli annexation of Palestinian territories would be a “crime,” the top Palestinian diplomat told the UN Security Council, warning of immediate repercussions if that occurs.
While everyone speaks of a situation at the crossroads, said Palestinian representative Riad Al-Maliki, “Unfortunately the driver is Israel and seems it will not stop at the crossroads to assess the implications of its choices.”
“Israel seems determined to ignore that big red stop sign the international community erected to save lives,” he said.
In a joint statement, EU members of the Security Council warned annexation would harm its ties with Israel.
“We all currently enjoy a close relationship with Israel and wish to continue working with Israel in a constructive and comprehensive way, in the spirit of the longstanding friendship that binds us. However, following our obligations and responsibilities under international law, annexation would have consequences for our close relationship with Israel and would not be recognized by us,” it said.
POMPEO: ANNEXATION UP TO ISRAEL
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo indicated Wednesday that Israel had the US green light to annex Palestinian land.
“Decisions about Israelis extending sovereignty to those places are decisions for the Israelis to make,” Pompeo told reporters, moments after the UN Security Council meeting ended.
“We are talking to all of the countries in the region about how it is we can manage this process for our end-state objective,” he said.
Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon, addressing the Security Council meeting, took issue with the term annexation.
“Should Israel decide to extend its sovereignty, it would be doing so with respect to areas over which it has always maintained a legitimate historical and legal claim,” he said. “Those who oppose Israel’s legal claims to this territory, also wrongly mischaracterize any potential Israeli decision to extend its sovereignty as ‘annexation.’ These objections result from embracing a Palestinian false narrative, rather than an assessment of the historical and legal truth.”
Experts have said there is no legal difference between the terms.

“The discussion over the extension of Israeli sovereignty to certain areas in Judea and Samaria does not stand in the way of peace,” said Danon, using the biblical name for the West Bank. “It is time that the Palestinians realize that rejectionism is a losing strategy and it is time that the international community chooses realism over rejectionism.”
Plans are to annex Jewish settlements in the West Bank as well as the strategic Jordan Valley, as part of a broader US blueprint for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
The plan — endorsed by Washington — would see the creation of a Palestinian state, but on reduced territory, and without Palestinians’ core demand of a capital in East Jerusalem.
The plan has been rejected in its entirety by the Palestinians.
It’s unclear if Israel will move ahead with annexation on July 1, the date Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has set to begin the process, since the United States reportedly wants the plan backed by Blue and White’s Benny Gantz and Gabi Ashkenazi — the defense and foreign ministers — who are thus far withholding the go-ahead amid intense discussions.
It has also been suggested that the plan could move ahead in stages, or eventually apply to only relatively small territory.
Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh told a PLO-led protest against Israeli annexation plans on Wednesday that it does not matter if Israel annexes one settlement or the whole West Bank.
“”They say that ‘if we just take a little land, that doesn’t matter.’ No, it matters! Annexation is annexation, no matter its size. Small or large, it is a setback for the Palestinian people,” Shtayyeh said at the protest in the Jordan Valley town of Faisal.
“The Jordan Valley is like Jerusalem,” Shtayyeh said, in terms of its inviolability.

UN CHIEF WARNS ISRAEL WEST BANK ANNEXATION WOULD BE ‘MOST SERIOUS VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL LAW’

https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/un-chief-mideast-envoy-urge-israel-to-drop-west-bank-annexation-plan-1.8945045
Guterres and Mideast envoy urge Israel to abandon plan to annex parts of the West Bank, as EU members of Security Council warn of diplomatic ‘consequences’
Antonio Guterres speaks during an interview with The Associated Press, February 2020.
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Nickolay Mladenov, the UN special envoy for the Middle East, called on Israel on Wednesday to abandon its plans to annex settlements in the occupied West Bank, warning that it threatened the prospects for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. A joint statement by several EU current and incoming members of the UN Security Council also said that annexation would have diplomatic consequences and would not be recognized by them. 
“If implemented, annexation would constitute a most serious violation of international law, grievously harm the prospect of a two-state solution and undercut the possibilities of a renewal of negotiations,” Guterres told the UN Security Council. “I call on the Israeli government to abandon its annexation plans,” Guterres said.

The joint statement from the current and incoming EU members of the council – Germany, Belgium France, Estonia, Ireland, the U.K., and Norway –  stated that annexation “would have consequences for our close relationship with Israel and would not be recognized by us.”
Mladenov meanwhile warned that annexation “will send one message and one message alone – bilateral negotiations cannot achieve a just peace. We cannot allow this to happen. No good can come out of the breakdown of dialogue and communications. Diplomacy must be given a chance.”
He added that annexation “could dramatically alter local dynamics, triggering instability among the occupied Palestinian territory. This conflict has been marked by periods of extreme violence, but never before has the risk of escalation been accompanied by a political horizon so distant, an economic situation so fragile and a region so volatile.”
James Cleverly, the U.K.’s minister of state for the Middle East and North Africa in the Foreign Office, told the Security Council that “annexation cannot go unanswered.”
U.S. Ambassador to the UN Kelly Craft told the council: “I understand that many of you have concerns with this issue of the potential extension of Israeli sovereignty in the West Bank. At the same time, we ask that you also hold the Palestinian leadership accountable for acts they are responsible for.”
Israel’s ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon told the council that there is “a strong and undeniable connection between the Jewish people and our historic homeland of Judea and Samaria. This has been true for over three millennia and no Palestinian propaganda can change that … Some in the international community choose to reward the Palestinians’ rejectionism and ignore reality. Instead of confronting the Palestinian leadership, they have tried to appease them by buying every rotten bill of goods the Palestinians were selling. This approach of blindly accepting the Palestinian narrative and demands has not and will not lead to a lasting and sustainable end to the conflict.”
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo meanwhile told reporters that decisions about annexation are “for Israelis to make.” With Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s July 1 deadline approaching, aides to U.S. President Donald Trump began discussions on Tuesday on whether to give Netanyahu the green light for annexation, which has drawn condemnation from the Palestinians and U.S. Arab allies.
In the Security Council session, Guterres called on the Middle East Quartet of mediators – the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations – “to take up our mandated mediation role and find a mutually agreeable framework for the parties to re-engage, without preconditions, with us and other key states.
Also Wednesday, a letter opposing annexation signed by over 1,000 European lawmakers was made public. 
“Such a move (annexation) will be fatal to the prospects of Israeli-Palestinian peace and will challenge the most basic norms guiding international relations,” the letter said. “Acquisition of territory by force has no place in 2020,” said the lawmakers, who included members of parliament from Hungary and the Czech Republic, two countries sympathetic to Israel and to Trump’s plan.
Netanyahu has set July 1 as the date for the start of cabinet discussions on moving forward on annexation, in line with Trump’s plan to end the conflict, which envisages Israeli sovereignty over 30 percent of the West Bank and Palestinian statehood under strict conditions. 
Netanyahu has dismissed criticism of the annexation plans. He says that extending Israeli sovereignty to Jewish settlements in the West Bank will bring peace closer once critics of the move recognize that hundreds of thousands of settlers in the area will remain under any future deal.

POMPEO: WEST BANK ANNEXATION UP TO ISRAEL

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/AFP And Toi Staff

AFTER UN AND ARAB LEAGUE WARNINGS, POMPEO SAYS WEST BANK ANNEXATION UP TO ISRAEL

 US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday that any decision on whether to annex West Bank land was up to Israel to make, amid wide criticism of the Jewish state’s plans.
“Decisions about Israelis extending sovereignty to those places are decisions for the Israelis to make,” Pompeo told reporters.“We are talking to all of the countries in the region about how it is we can manage this process for our end-state objective,” he said.
He was speaking moments after the United Nations and the Arab League, during a UN Security Council session, joined in calling for Israel to abandon its plans to annex parts of the West Bank and warned of dangerous consequences if the move goes ahead.
Arab states, notably US ally Jordan, have voiced alarm at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s indication that he will move ahead as soon as next week to annex West Bank settlements and the Jordan Valley — some 30 percent of the territory — saying that it would kill prospects for peace.
But Pompeo said that both Netanyahu and Gulf states backed a Middle East plan unveiled in January by US President Donald Trump, which gives the blessing to Israel for annexation and allows for a demilitarized Palestinian state.
“I regret only that the Palestinian Authority has refused to participate in that,” Pompeo said.
“I remain hopeful that in the coming weeks, we can begin to make real progress towards achieving that,” he said of Trump’s plan.
Officials in the Trump administration are set to decide this week on whether to approve Netanyahu’s declared plan.

U.S. TO HAVE ‘BIG ANNOUNCEMENT’ ABOUT ISRAEL’S PLANNED ANNEXATION IN WEST BANK SOON

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – By Toi Staff
TRUMP TO MAKE ‘BIG ANNOUNCEMENT’ ON WEST BANK ANNEXATION
Kellyanne Conway, a top adviser to Donald Trump, said on Wednesday the US president would soon have a “big announcement” about Israel’s planned annexation of parts of the West Bank.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to begin the process as early as July 1. Officials in the Trump administration are set to decide this week on whether to approve Netanyahu’s declared plan.
“There are conversations being had. Obviously the president will have an announcement. He’s talked about this in the past and I’ll leave it to him to give you a big announcement. Very happy those talks continue,” Conway told reporters at the White House.
“Let’s just see, because he wants to be an agent for peace in the Middle East and he’s trying to do that,” Conway said. “He has tried to bring peace to the Middle East in many different ways”
When asked if Trump was concerned about a backlash from Arab states and the Palestinians over Israel’s annexation plans, Conway downplayed the fears, citing the muted response to Trump’s decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, which he announced in December 2017.
“’He moves the embassy to Jerusalem, the Arab world is going to disappear.’ Thank God that wasn’t true. There’s always this scare tactic… of all the bad that’s going to happen, and then it doesn’t happen,” she said.
The Trump administration’s Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, which was unveiled in January, allocates to Israel some 30 percent of the West Bank, including all 132 settlements and the Jordan Valley, and allows for a demilitarized Palestinian state.
Senior aides to Trump on Tuesday began discussions on the administration’s position on annexation, a US official and a person familiar with the deliberations told the Reuters news agency.

IRAN WILL RESPOND TO ISRAEL’S AIRSTRIKES IN SYRIA

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Tzvi Joffre 
EX-IDF INTEL CHIEF: IRAN WILL RESPOND TO OVERNIGHT AIRSTRIKES IN SYRIA
A former IDF intelligence chief warned that Israel should be prepared for a variety of different responses by Iran or its proxies after two waves of alleged Israeli airstrikes targeted sites belonging to the Syrian Army and Iranian and pro-Iranian forces throughout Syria on Tuesday night.
“The Iranians and their proxies will search for ways to respond to and deter Israel,” tweeted Amos Yadlin, former IDF Intelligence chief and executive director of the Institute for National Security Studies, on Wednesday, adding that Israel must prepare for a full spectrum of possible responses by the “Shi’ite axis in which Nasrallah has entered into [former IRGC Quds Force commander Qasem] Soleimani’s shoes as a strategist and central operator.”
The former IDF intelligence chief pointed to past attempts to fire rockets into Israel and recent cyber-attacks targeting Israeli businesses and infrastructure.
Referring to the economic crisis in Syria, Lebanon and Iran, Yadlin stated that these difficulties could moderate possible responses, but could also accelerate and push to divert attention to external conflict.
Yadlin added that the airstrikes on Tuesday night show that reports that the Iranians were leaving Syria were “wishful thinking,” explaining that Iran was continuing to widen the area where it was establishing itself in Syria. 
Yadlin stressed that As-Suwayda, the location of some of the strikes, is located in an area in which Russia had promised that Iran and Hezbollah would not have access to.
Syrian air defenses responded to an alleged Israeli airstrike near Hama in western-central Syria late on Tuesday night, just hours after alleged Israeli airstrikes targeted sites in southern and eastern Syria, according to the Syrian state news agency SANA.
The second wave of strikes targeted multiple sites near Hama including warehouses used by Iranian militias to store weapons and ammunition, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR). Casualties were reported due to the strike. According to the Step News Agency, the strikes destroyed an Iranian arms shipment that had arrived from the Iranian Imam Ali base in the Deir Ezzor region of eastern Syria.

A CHILLING WARNING:

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Monica Showalter
A CHILLING WARNING ABOUT WHERE THE STATUE-TOPPLING LEADS…
Think it can’t happen here? 
It can happen here.
That’s the warning from a young woman from Venezuela, who has seen the statue-topplings before — and the street-renamings, (and the flag-alterings, and the name-changings) along the destruction of history, and knows exactly where it leads.
She made this powerful video here:
“Why do I even worry about some silly little statues coming down?  Or some silly little street names changing?  Why do I care?  It’s because the last time I didn’t care about this, I was a teenager.  I have already lived through this thing, when I was living in Venezuela ” she begins.
“Statues came down, [Hugo] Chávez didn’t want the history displayed.  Then he changed the street names, then came the (school) curriculum, then some movies couldn’t be shown on certain TV channels.  And so on, and so forth…
“You guys think it can’t happen to you.  I’ve heard this so many times.  But always be on guard, never believe that something can’t happen to you.  You need to guard your country and your society or it will be destroyed.”
She concludes: “And there’s clearly a lot of people wanting to destroy the U.S.”
Why is what she says so powerful?  Because it’s true.
It really happened that way in Venezuela.  The statue-topplings began in 2004 and were dismissed then as disturbing but still largely a Chavista clown show for the cameras at the time.
When I visited Venezuela in late 2005, the trajectory of her warning — from statue-topplings to curriculum change, was advancing.  I was privileged to experience the “curriculum” changes that followed firsthand from the red-shirted Chavista “Bolivarian Circles” in the shantytowns — where they invited me to come in and sample the communist propaganda — conducted by 1960s backwash professors of complete ignorance but total ideological zeal, to bored, disconsolate peasants who simply wanted the paycheck that came at the end for attending.
I also recall the dismissals of anything truly terrible happening at the time.  I went to an investment banking conference in Caracas, where the suits said the government was “very strong” but there was nothing to worry about, things would eventually correct themselves, and in any case, there was still money to be made for the bold.

THE GREAT ECONOMIC RESET’ SCHEDULED FOR 2021

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
GLOBALISTS REVEAL THAT THE ‘GREAT ECONOMIC RESET’ IS COMING IN 2021
For those not familiar with the phrase “global economic reset”, it is one that has been used ever increasingly by elitists in the central banking world for several years. 
I first heard it referenced by Christine Lagarde, the head of the IMF at the time, in 2014. The reset is often mentioned in the same breath as ideas like “the New Multilateralism” or “the Multipolar World Order” or “the New World Order”. All of these phrases mean essentially the same thing.
The reset is promoted as a solution to the ongoing economic crisis which was triggered in 2008. This same financial crash is still with us today; but now, after a decade of central bank money printing and debt creation, the bubble is even bigger than it was before. 
As always, the central bank “cure” is far worse than the disease, and the renewed crash we face today is far more deadly than what would have happened in 2008 if we had simply taken our medicine and refused to prop up weak parts of the economy artificially.
The truth is, the Fed is not a bumbling maintenance man, the Fed is a saboteur, a suicide bomber that is willing to destroy even itself as an institution in order to explode the US economy and clear the path for a new globally centralized one world system. Hence, the “Global Reset”.
In 2015 in my article ‘The Global Economic Reset Has Begun’, I stated:
The global reset is not a “response” to the process of collapse we are trapped in today. No, the global reset as implemented by central banks and the BIS/IMF is the cause of the collapse. The collapse is a tool, a flamethrower burning a great hole in the forest to make way for the foundations of the globalist Ziggurat to be built….economic disaster serves the interests of elitists.
Now in 2020 we see the globalist plan coming to fruition, with the elites revealing what appears to be their intent to launch their reset in 2021. The World Economic Forum officially announced the Great Reset initiative as part of their Covid Action Platform last week, and a summit is scheduled in January 2021 to discuss their plans more openly with the world and the mainstream media.
The reset, according to discussions by the IMF, is basically the next stage in the formation of a one-world economic system and potential global government. This seems to fall in line with the solutions offered during the Event 201 pandemic simulation; a simulation of a coronavirus pandemic that was held by the Bill And Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Economic Forum only two months before the REAL THING happened at the beginning of 2020. 
Event 201 suggested that one of the top solutions to a pandemic would be the institution of a centralized global economic body that could handle the financial response to the coronavirus.
Is it not convenient that the events of the real coronavirus pandemic fall exactly in line with the Event 201 simulation, as well as directly in line with the global reset plans of the IMF and the World Economic Forum? As they say, let no crisis go to waste, or, as is the motto of the globalists “Order Out Of Chaos”

WHISTLEBLOWER CLAIMS CHINESE COMMUNISTS PAY VATICAL BILLIONS IN BRIBES

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.
WHISTLEBLOWER CLAIMS CHINESE COMMUNISTS PAY VATICAN $2 BILLION IN BRIBES
Exiled Chinese dissident Guo Wengui alleged this weekend the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) “allocates $2 billion a year” to pay off the Vatican for its silence concerning Chinese atrocities.
In a June 20th interview on The War Room, Mr. Guo said the CCP earmarks massive sums each year to win the allegiance of foreign countries including the Vatican, Italy, and Australia. Among them, the Vatican receives up to 2 billion dollars from the Chinese Communist Party every year, he said.
“The Chinese Communist Party allocates 2 billion US dollars each year” to gain influence over the Vatican’s internal policy making and to pay for its silence on the CCP’s repression of religious freedom, said the controversial billionaire whistleblower.
Guo has previously stated that China has drafted a complete strategy for world domination known by the initials “BGY,” which stands for Blue (control the Internet), Gold (buy influence with money), and Yellow (seduce key people with sex).

TECHNOCRATS, PSEUDO-SCIENCE AND POLITICS

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – LeoHohmann.com
TECHNOCRATS TOUTING ‘PSEUDO-SCIENCE’ CONTINUE TO PREY ON OUR EMOTIONS IN PURSUIT OF POLITICAL AGENDA: THIS MUST STOP
Masks, social distancing, contact tracing and other aspects of the ‘new normal’ have no scientific basis for ending coronavirus so why do governors, mayors and bureaucrats continue to push them?
Wood provides us with the definitive, factual and documented report on the top three tools being used by technocrats today to control human behavior — facemasks, social distancing and contact tracing. 
Once upon a time, there was something called science. It included the discovery of truth about nature, the elements, the universe, etc. It was practiced by honest and accountable practitioners called scientists and engineers.
These scientists often invented cool new things as a result of their studies, but generally they had no primal urge to use their knowledge to dominate other people, groups or even entire societies.
Then certain other scientists and engineers rose up and made a discovery of their own. If true science was ever-so-slightly skewed and engineering disciplines were applied to society at large, then they could indeed use their “knowledge” to dominate and control other people, groups, entire societies or even, heaven forbid, the entire planet.
The first group pursued science. The second group pursued pseudo-science.
In the context of pseudo-science, this report will examine the three primary tools of fighting COVID-19: face masks, social distancing and contact tracing.

BILL GATES AND MICROSOFT BANNED IN RUSSIA

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Martin Armstrong
GATES’ DREAM OF CONTROLLING THE WORLD IS HITTING A BRICK WALL
Bill Gates and Microsoft have been banned in Russia. This is seriously preventing Bill Gates’ dream of vaccinating the entire world so he can track everyone. Russia is going to add Bill Gates to the blacklist along with George Soros and Jacob Rothschild.
The entire scheme of Microsoft and the others is to take everything that we do, create profiles, and then sell that to companies to endlessly market stuff to us. If I am paying for a program like Windows, I do not want endless updates that are really phishing for everything I do. They are not satisfied with paying for a product. They much destroy all privacy for a buck.
We are now faced with the second wave of Marxists determined to create a Marxist world despite the fact it has never worked. Guess what — they are right on time. The collapse of Communism was 1989.95; add 31.4 years, and we arrive at 2021.35 perfectly as we head into the Monetary Crisis Cycle.
Putin is at least protecting the Russian people against the manufactured pandemic. There are far about 9.5 million people who die every year from cancer compared to Bill Gates’ virus of fewer than 500,000 deaths worldwide. About 645,000die of heart attacks annually. There are about 15.2 milliondeaths annually from various diseases. We do not hear about that every night on CNN delivering a daily death count. If they did, it would probably also change behavior. In comparison, Gates’ virus is overly exaggerated for the sole purpose of terrorizing people into complying with his agenda.

SUMMER OF HATE MEETS AGE OF INTOLERANCE

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – John W. Whitehead
THIS WAY LIES MADNESS: THE SUMMER OF HATE MEETS THE AGE OF INTOLERANCE
“Violence creates many more social problems than it solves…. If they succumb to the temptation of using violence in their struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and our chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos. Violence isn’t the way.”—Martin Luther King Jr.
Marches, protests, boycotts, sit-ins: these are nonviolent tactics that work.
Looting, vandalism, the destruction of public property, intimidation tactics aimed at eliminating anything that might cause offence to the establishment: these tactics of mobs and bullies may work in the short term, but they will only give rise to greater injustices in the long term.
The police state has got us exactly where it wants us: distracted, distraught and divided.
What started as a movement to denounce police brutality in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of killer cops has become a free-for-all campaign to rid the country of any monument, literal or figurative, to anyone who may have at any time in history expressed a racist thought, exhibited racist behaviour, or existed within a racist society.
While protesters topple statues of men with racist pasts who are long dead, unarmed Americans continue to be killed by militarized police trained to shoot first and ask questions later.
While activists use their collective might to pressure corporations to re-brand products in a more racially sensitive fashion, the American police state—aided and abetted by the Corporate State—continues…

FREE SPEECH UNDER ASSAULT

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – J.G. Carter
FREE SPEECH IS UNDER FULL ASSAULT
Increasingly, we see people holding unpopular views being attacked and refused a forum in which to speak.  Through the threat of force and censorship to control people’s speech, free speech is under full assault.   History is replete with others using similar tactics.  As in the times before the Nazi rise to power, the Soviet gulag era, and Mao’s revolution, similar trends are prevalent today.
Freedom of speech is engaging in unrestricted speaking of one’s mind without fear of retaliation or censorship.  It is the freedom to use one’s natural rights to engage in complex thought and speech.  This is not a new concept. Freedom of speech has a history centuries old, long predating the founding of this country.  Some want to control these natural abilities.  This is where the dispute lies. 
One does not have to look far to find multiple examples of the threat of violence and censorship.  This ranges from online mobs to technology company and media censorship and peer attacks.  Those with differing opinions are blackballed, blacklisted, attacked, and censored out of existence.  
Take, for example, distinguished University of Chicago professor Harald Uhlig, attacked by his professional peers and online mob for writing that Black Lives Matters “just torpedoed itself, with its full-fledged support of #defundthepolice.” And, “Time for sensible adults to enter back into the room and have serious, earnest, respectful conversations about it all… We need more police, we need to pay them more, we need to train them better.” 
The mode of operating is the same: disapprove the words someone uses, sensationalize the awfulness of it, then use every method of force available to attack them.  As with Dr. Uhlig, threaten to take away their livelihood, discredit their work, and then, by proxy, incite mobs to physically attack them and their property.  They are treated worse than the violent criminal who can at least work when released from prison.  Even the radicals of the 60s had the decency to honor freedom of speech.  One would think today’s academics would be the champions of free speech, not adversarial critics. 
Then there are the technology giants like Twitter, Facebook, Google, and others, pretending to have an open platform but leading the charge for censorship and tyranny against free speech. This is like selling a microphone, then taking it away when the buyer uses it to say something the seller does not like.  Or like selling a pair of shoes but taking them off someone’s feet when they do not like where they walk.  These platforms are not free, people pay for them through advertisements and other fees.  As allies of government, these companies enjoy special protections and regulations, platforms, privileges, benefits, and partnerships.   
All enemies of free speech are similar; they control the free expression of speech, the words people choose, and change the meaning of words when it suits them.  They attack those who disagree, take away their income, and do whatever harm they can get away with toward those who disagree.  It is a violent philosophy.

MEDIA-INDUCED FEAR OF COVID-19 IS STARTING TO CAUSE A SECOND WAVE OF SEVERE ECONOMIC PANIC

June 24, 2020 by Michael Snyderhttp://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/

Fear of COVID-19 absolutely crippled the U.S. economy during the first half of this year, and now it appears that there are some people that are pushing for that to happen again during the second half of 2020.  Earlier this evening, I came across a headline that boldly declared that there will be “180,000 U.S. deaths of COVID-19 by October”, and right now just about every mainstream news outlet is running stories about how the number of confirmed cases in the U.S. is surging.  And it is definitely true that we are seeing an alarming rise in the number of confirmed cases.  In fact, the number of new cases in the U.S. on Wednesday set a new record(READ MORE…)

REALLY BIZARRE THINGS ARE HAPPENING ALL OVER THE GLOBE

June 25, 2020June 24, 2020 by Michael Snyder – http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/really-bizarre-things-are-happening-all-over-the-globe
Just when you think that 2020 has been filled with enough trouble, even more stuff starts happening.  Coming into this week, we were already dealing with a new COVID-19 surge which has pushed the number of daily cases to the highest levels we have seen so far, a global economy which is in the process of imploding all around us, massive civil unrest in U.S. cities from coast to coast, and giant swarms of locusts that are wiping out farms all the way from eastern Africa to parts of India.  Unfortunately, now we have several more items to add to our growing list.
Let’s start by talking about an alarming new outbreak of locusts.  The following comes from a British news source
Dramatic footage captures an “astonishing” swarm of locusts swarm through farmland and destroy crops.
The short-horned grasshoppers are capable of devouring the same amount of crops as 2,500 people would each day.
Some of you may have just read that paragraph and come to the conclusion that this is “old news”.
After all, we have been hearing about the colossal armies of locusts in Africa for months, and I have published numerous articles about that unprecedented plague.
But the news story that I just quoted wasn’t talking about those locusts.  Instead, that report was about a brand new infestation that has erupted in Argentina, and one local official is saying that he has never seen anything like it ever before.
Just like on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, these little critters are voraciously gobbling up everything in sight, and countless farms are being destroyed.
Now these swarms are heading for Brazil, and Brazilian officials are definitely extremely alarmed.  One of my readers in Brazil sent me an article about this emerging crisis from a Brazilian news source, and the following is a quote from that article which has been translated into English…
In approximately one square kilometer they can have up to 40 million insects, which in one day consume pastures equivalent to what 2,000 cows or 350,000 people eat, Argentine agronomist Héctor Medina told Reuters.
What would you do if 40 million locusts suddenly descended on your farm?
Of course the truth is that there would be very little that you could do that would make any sort of a difference.  Just like so many other farmers around the globe, you would simply watch as all of your hard work is completely wiped out.
Meanwhile, an absolutely gigantic plume of dust from Africa has crossed the Atlantic Ocean and is about to hit the United States.  The following comes from CBS News
A massive plume of dust from the Sahara desert in northern Africa has been traversing the atmosphere, thousands of feet above the tropical Atlantic Ocean, and is now cloaking the Caribbean and closing in on the southeastern United States.
Every once in a while a dust plume from Africa can cross the ocean like this, but the monstrous one that we are witnessing right now is truly unusual.
In fact, one expert says that this is “the most significant event in the past 50 years”
“This is the most significant event in the past 50 years. Conditions are dangerous in many Caribbean islands,” Pablo Méndez Lázaro, from the University of Puerto Rico’s School of Public Health, told the Associated Press.
As this plume travels across the U.S., air quality in some areas will drop precipitously.  Some of the dust has already arrived, but a “thicker layer” is projected to starting hitting Texas on Friday
On Wednesday, the dust is forecast to move across the Gulf of Mexico toward Texas.
Thursday morning, people in places like Brownsville in Texas and Houston will likely wake up to a beautiful sunrise and a hazier than normal sky.
Forecast models show the thicker concentration blanketing most of Central America and Mexico Thursday.
This thicker layer is likely to reach Texas by Friday and then take a turn to the east. If the forecast model is right, it will move over most of the Southeast and MidAtlantic states over the weekend.
On top of everything else, the west coast is starting to shake in a major way once again.  On Wednesday, southern California was struck by a magnitude 5.8 earthquake
California residents received an emergency alert on their phones which read: “Earthquake! Expect shaking. Drop, Cover, Hold On. Protect yourself now. – USGS ShakeAlert”. The US Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake struck 17km south-southeast of Lone Pine. The tremor originated at a depth of 2.9km, with an epicenter around 17 kilometers south-east of Lone Pine.
According to a USGS interactive shake map the impact of the earthquake could be felt in the Death Valley National Park.
The earthquake has since been downgraded to 5.8 magnitude.
That quake was followed by numerous sizable aftershocks, including one that was measured to be magnitude 4.6.
Overall, there have been 2,267 earthquakes in California and Nevada over the last 7 days, and that is definitely alarming.
Farther south along “the Ring of Fire”, Mexico was hit by a magnitude 7.4 earthquake on Tuesday
A powerful earthquake struck Mexico’s southern Oaxaca region on Tuesday, killing at least five people and shaking buildings hundreds of miles away.
The 7.4-magnitude quake struck mid-morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Its epicenter was off the Pacific coast about seven miles southwest of Santa María Zapotitlán, near the beach resort of Huatulco.
Very large seismic events are happening so frequently now that they barely make a blip on the news these days, and that is unfortunate because people need to wake up and understand that our planet is becoming increasingly unstable.
Here in the United States, scientists have been strongly warning us for years that we are way overdue for “the Big One” to hit California, and this is one of the things that I will be addressing in the new book that I am currently working on.
At some point there will be no more sand in the hourglass, and an unprecedented disaster will strike the west coast.  Let us pray that we still have quite a bit more time before that happens.
But nothing can stop the inexorable march of time, and the deeper we get into 2020 the crazier it gets.
Unfortunately, the truth is that this “perfect storm” is just getting started, and that means that what we have experienced up to this point is just the tip of the iceberg.

THE TWO MAJOR EVENTS THAT WILL USHER IN THE “SECOND COMING OF CHRIST”

https://endtimeheadlines.org/2020/06/the-two-major-events-that-will-usher-in-the-second-coming-of-christ/ – Jun 24, 2020
The Two Major Events That Will Usher in the “Second Coming of Christ”
 (OPINION) Desiring God – When Paul introduced his teaching on the second coming in chapter 1 of 2 Thessalonians — as we saw in the previous message — he did so precisely to help the church understand why their persecutions and afflictions (verse 4) was a sign or “evidence” of God’s righteous judgment (verse 5).
So, his teaching on the second coming is not first a chapter in an eschatology book, but an urgent message of help for Christians who, in every age, are being slandered, and fired from their jobs, and beaten, and jailed, and killed. In other words, Paul’s teaching about the second coming in chapter 1 is meant for Pastor Wang Yi, just sentenced to 9 years of imprisonment in China; and for the family of pastor Lawan Andimi, just beheaded in Nigeria two weeks ago; and for Fatemah Mohammadi, a Christian woman missing in Iran; and for you.
But persecution and suffering are not the only issue at Thessalonica, and Paul, now in chapters 2 and 3, takes his instruction about the second coming to a new level of detail in dealing with this second issue. The issue is that some in the church have ceased to do their ordinary vocational jobs, and started to make a nuisance of themselves as busybodies, mooching off the other Christians, since they’re not earning any money. And evidently, though Paul doesn’t say so explicitly, this delinquency is owing to a kind of hysteria in the community that the day of the Lord is not just near, but is already present.
So, while in chapter 1 Paul’s teaching on the second coming was designed to help the Christians keep on believing and loving each other through persecutions and suffering, now in chapter 2, Paul’s teaching on the second coming is designed to counteract the hysteria and get them back to work. So, we could say: the aim of eschatology in chapter 1 is steadfastness in suffering, and the aim of eschatology in chapters 2 and 3 is steadfastness in doing good works and earning a living.

5.8 QUAKE HITS CENTRAL CALIFORNIA

https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/
California earthquake: 5.8 magnitude quake shakes Central California, is felt in parts of Bay Area and SoCal
A preliminary magnitude 5.8 earthquake shook the eastern part of Central California Wednesday morning, according to the USGS.

The temblor was reported in the Owens Valley, south of the town of Lone Pine on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
Residents across Central California reported feeling the quake, as did people in some parts of Northern and Southern California. Waves were felt in the Los Angeles basin, 200 miles away from the epicenter.
Clovis resident, Ashley Rios, shared a photo with us of a crack in the tile of her home caused by the earthquake.
Footage from a grocery store in Lone Pine showed a mess – cans were strewn on the floor and broken glass was everywhere.
Lone Pine sits in a gigantic trough between two ranges of the Sierra Nevadas. It is here in the Owens Valley that the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power aqueduct is situated to supply mountain water to Los Angeles. LADWP said engineers are examining the dams and waterways following the quake.
So far, there have been no reports of damage.
Seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones said that the Owens Valley quake is in the same location that a M 4.6 quake was felt two nights ago. That smaller, earlier quake is now considered a foreshock to Wednesday’s quake.
Wednesday’s quake sent hearts racing in Ridgecrest, where a flurry of shocks, as strong as 7.1, hit last year around the Fourth of July.
“This is a different fault than the Ridgecrest earthquake, and it’s far enough away that it doesn’t fall within the traditional definition of aftershocks. Rather, we would look at it as its own earthquake,” Jones said.
In the minutes after the magnitude 5.8 earthquake, there were more than a half a dozen aftershocks, ranging from M 2.5 up to M 4.6.

Our Heavenly Body (CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE)

https://gracethrufaith.com/topical-studies/spiritual-life/heavenly-body/
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley
THE OLD HAS GONE, THE NEW HAS COME
Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come (2 Cor. 5:5).
Fashioning something is the process of making it into something else, usually for a specific purpose. “He took a piece of wood and fashioned it into a leg for the table he was building.” It’s no longer just an ordinary piece of wood. It has been changed into something better, something that serves a specific purpose.
God began with us as we were and through the cross fashioned us into someone else. When you were dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive in Christ” (Ephes 2:13). His very purpose in doing this is so we can be clothed in our heavenly body.
The craftsman will never again think of the table leg as a random piece of wood. He now thinks of it as something he made. In the same way, God will never again think of you as you used to be. He now thinks of you as a new creation in Christ. To Him, the old you has gone and the new you has come (2 Cor. 5:17). Then He put His Spirit in you as a deposit guaranteeing that this will happen.
Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord (2 Cor. 5:6-8).
The confidence Paul spoke of comes from knowing that even though we are still in our earthly body, our destiny is to be with the Lord in our heavenly body. Therefore we live by what we believe to be true, not by what we see. No earthly event can shake us because by faith we know what is coming. No matter who is in office, no matter what laws get passed, no matter how much of its value our money has lost, no matter what this dark and dying world thinks of us, we know what the outcome will be because the one who fashioned us for this very purpose is God.
HERE COMES THE JUDGE
So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad (2 Cor. 5:9-10).
Whether we are dead and gone or alive and well our goal is to please God. The judgement seat of Christ is also called the bema seat judgment. (The Greek word “bema” simply means “judgement seat”.)
This judgment will take place after the rapture/resurrection so it doesn’t have anything to do with our salvation. Everyone there will be saved and in the presence of the Lord forever.
It will concern what we did for the Lord during our Christian life here on earth. In 1 Cor. 3:10-15 Paul said the Lord will divide the things we did into two groups. One group will be compared to gold, silver and precious gems; things that have value. In 2 Cor. 5:10 these things are called “good”. The other group will be compared to wood, hay, and stubble, things only suitable for burning in the judgement fire. These are called “bad” in 2 Cor. 5:10.
In his summary statement of this judgement, Paul said,
If it (what we’ve done) is burned up he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames” (1 Cor. 3:15).
Taken together, these two passages confirm that the judgement seat of Christ is not for the purpose of reviewing every good or bad thing we’ve ever done, it’s for the purpose of identifying which of the things we’ve done qualify for special recognition.
In John 15:5-6 Jesus said if we remain in Him and He in us we will bear much fruit; apart from Him we can do nothing. He said those who don’t remain in Him are like branches that are thrown away and wither. Such branches are thrown into the fire and burned up.
Some see this as a passage that denies OSAS, thinking that if we don’t remain in Jesus He will throw us into the fires of judgement. They don’t understand that Jesus wasn’t talking about salvation here because salvation is not a fruit bearing event. It’s what we do after being saved that determines whether we bear fruit or not. He was talking about what we do with our life as a believer.
In order to bear fruit as a believer, we have to remain in Him. That means we have to see Him as our Lord, not just our Savior, and submit to His direction for our life. By remaining in us Jesus was referring to the supernatural power He makes available to believers.  Many of us have experienced this power when by yielding our will to his and placing the outcome of an action in His hands, we’ve enjoyed a result that surpassed our human capacity to produce. Adopting this as a lifestyle will make our Christian life fruitful beyond anything we could have done on our own.
In contrast, going off on our own can produce nothing of value to the Kingdom. No matter how great the results of our actions look in human terms, the Lord sees the things we do apart from His guidance and His strength as nothing more than withered branches, suitable only for the fire.
When I compare John 15:5-6 to 1 Cor. 3:10-15 and 2 Cor. 5:10 I conclude that when we’re before the judgment seat of Christ it won’t be the results we produce as believers that will matter. It’s the motives behind them that will be judged. Things done at the Lord’s direction and in His strength will be like gold, silver and precious gems in his eyes. Those done out of our own volition and in our own strength will have no value.
This explains Paul’s admonition in 1 Cor. 4:5.
Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God.”
It also explains why discovering God’s will for our lives requires that we first offer ourselves as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, and that we stop conforming to the pattern of this world, allowing ourselves instead to be transformed by the renewing of our mind (Romans 12:2). Only by doing that can we remain in Him and He in us.
In summary, there’s a heavenly body awaiting us. It’s the permanent home for our spirit, to replace this temporary earthly one. God has fashioned us into a new creation for the express purpose of inhabiting it and sent his Son to die for our sins to make it possible. Or as someone said, “The man from Heaven became outfitted for Earth so men from Earth could be outfitted for heaven.” Selah 03-01-14.

JESUS CHRIST RETURN FOR HIS CHURCH IS “IMMINENT

DON’T WAIT FOR THE LAST MINUTE

We are currently in the “Birth Pangs” of the coming “7 year TRIBULATION” period, where all the Nations on Earth will be subject to God’s Wrath on an “UNGODLY” World. The Rapture of Jesus Christ Church is “TOTALLY” imminent; And what will follow after that will be massively more devastating that we are seeing right now (Read Revelation Ch 6 – 22) God is trying to get everyone’s attention to the coming Judgements; He does not want “ANYONE” to perish, but all to come to repentance. He loves us, but will not stand idly by and watch the World, (His Creation) turn to sin and debauchery). We are currently living in a fallen “Satanic” World where “EVIL”, is totally accepted, and God and his Love is being exponentially rejected. The time has come when God HAS TO intervene, and he is (The prophetic word listed in his Word the Bible is being fulfilled exponentially).
