The Bible suggests in prophecy that the most outrageous things would occur in world poltics: alliances would end abruptly and the world would plunge into an unstable time. We are today in the day of political upheaval, not seen in a generation.
25 May 2018 Britain awakes and moves back into the gulf
The UK is to send a frigate to be “an enduring presence” in the Gulf, in the most serious naval deployment to the region in more than 40 years, the Defence Secretary has announced in a show of support for Nato.
A Royal Navy Type-23 Frigate will be based from the UK’s new £40 million National Support Facility at Mina Salman in Bahrain, unveiled by Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa and the Duke of York last month.
Britain has not had a similar posture since 1971, when HMS Juffair in Bahrain was closed following the country’s declaration of independence.
Speaking at the Sea Power conference at the Royal United Services Institute, Gavin Williamson said that Britain will invest heavily in the Middle East and weave a web of partnerships with allies.
A Navy spokesman told The Telegraph the Gulf "forward deployment shows the Royal Navy is going back to the principle of being a more reactive and more available force”.
The Defence secretary also spoke of to the “increasing aggression and increasing assertiveness” of Russia. In 2010 the Royal Navy had to respond once to a Russian navy vessel approaching UK territorial waters. “Last year we had to respond 33 times” telegraph.co.uk
We notice that they support NATO- not by backing Germany- but by moving back into the Gulf to support Bahrain. If the British are against Russia in the Gulf what does that mean? It means that they know Russia is in Syria and.. Egypt. It means Egypt is not a possible base.
He (king of the North) shall enter also into the glorious land (Israel), and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. (Daniel 11:41-43)
16 December 2018 Arabs and Israel – a Semitic alliance?
It would be quite unwise to speak of Arabs versus Israel any-more.
Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa.. surprisingly lent support to Australia’s recognition of west Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, despite a condemnation of the move by the Arab League and the Palestinians..“Australia’s position does not hamper the legitimate demands of the Palestinians and first and foremost East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital. It also does not contradict the Arab Peace Initiative,” he explained in a tweet.
Australia has decided to formally recognize west Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, but won’t move its embassy until there’s a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced Saturday. While the embassy move is delayed, Morrison said his government would establish a defense and trade office in Jerusalem and would also start looking for an appropriate site for the embassy.
Bahrain has recently lent support to Israel when it voiced support for the IDF’s operation to expose and destroy Hezbollah’s cross-border tunnels. Earlier this year, Bahrain officially supported Israel’s right to defend itself against Iranian aggression in Syria.
The most remarkable prediction of the Bible is that 'Sheba and Dedan', which the Bible clearly indicates are the Arabs, are lead voices against the Northern Invader into Israel. After over 100 years of opposition, for the winds to so suddenly change - speaks of miracle- speak of God's hands in the nations. The God of the Bible likes doing things suddenly, to the wonder of the world.
9 January 2019 Bahrain supporting US and Israel
Bahrain’s foreign minister struck back at his Iranian counterpart after the latter ridiculed U.S. national security adviser’s John Bolton’s trip to Israel. Bahrain had been the first Arab country to blacklist Iran-backed Hezbollah as a terrorist organization in 2013, due to its alleged training of extremist Shiites in the country.
11 January 2019 Turkish break with the US
Turkish president calls off planned meeting with Trump’s National Security Adviser after Bolton called on Turkey to avoid harming Kurds in Syria.The American request in writing called for Turkey to involve the U.S.-backed Kurdish militia – the YPG – in the decision-making process regarding northern Syria. In a theatrical gesture, Erdogan tore up the American document in the course of a speech in Turkey’s Parliament Tuesday.
In Ezekiel 38 Turkey is most readily identified with Togarmah (ancient Armenia), and Togarmah is with the Northern Invader Gog who is 'a guard to them'. Turkey will be in the power of the 'prince of Rosh' . They are in Russia's power as we see now,
Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north
quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou
prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are
assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them. (Ezekiel 38:5-7)
20 January 2019 Supermoon
January 20: A ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’ Will Cross Over America On The 2nd Anniversary Of Donald Trump’s Inauguration.
The entire eclipse from beginning to end will be visible from every single location in the continental United States, but much of the rest of the world will miss out on this experience completely.
Red is for blood and the moon speaks of the lesser powers. The sun is the highest political power, the moon reflects that. Oddly this is called a wolf moon being the first of the year. Wolves ravin prey. This event suggests poltical 'bloodshed'. We have seen since that indeed political 'knives' are out in America.
also falls on the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shevat. Even more significant is the fact that there was another Blood Moon on Tu B’Shevat last year! Last year the blood moon was seen over the Middle East and this year will be seen over the U.S.”
1 February 2019 US Stops Aid to Palestinian Authority
The US has confirmed it stopped all aid to Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza, in a step linked to new anti-terrorism legislation. The Anti-Terrorism Clarification Act (ATCA), passed by Congress and then signed into law by President Donald Trump last year, has just come into force.
The PA then admitting they are Terrorists...
Saeb Erekat said the Palestinian Authority (PA) had sent a letter to the US state department asking them to end funding because of a fear of lawsuits.
Last year, Washington cut hundreds of millions of dollars of aid to the Palestinians, which included funding of humanitarian projects - such as health, education and infrastructure - supported by USAID... The Trump administration also ended all US funding for the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA. It had previously been the largest donor to UNRWA, giving more than $360m in 2017.https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-47095082
With an eye on multiple events pointing to the fact we are approaching the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38, we see another which is counter-intuitive: Ezekiel 38 presents Israel living in security, without walls and gates, yet we see the PA being reduced. The Oslo Accords didn't bring peace, they brought the PA and violence, therefore dramatically reducing the PA will bring the security, as written.
And thou (Gog) shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, (Eze 38:11)
21 February 2019 EU Alliance with Anti Israel terrorists Hezbollah and Iran
Its summary of the human rights situation in Lebanon said: “Lebanon generally upheld and preserved respect for human rights and the rule of law and undertook some important key reforms.”
The EU, of course, doesn’t hesitate to condemn Israel when it is perceived as doing something that the EU disagrees with — like cutting payments to the Palestinian Authority that go to terrorists.
Based on this EU report, one can say that there is a conscious effort to suppress news about how Lebanon mistreats the remaining 200,000 Palestinians who live there. This is more Palestinians than the number who live in Area C, under Israeli rule, who are in the headlines constantly.
The only conclusion one can make is that the people screaming about human rights for Palestinians aren’t really concerned about Palestinians. They only want to use the issue as a bludgeon to go after Israel. https://www.algemeiner.com/2019/02/21/the-eu-praises-lebanons-human-rights-record-ignoring-how-it-abuses-palestinians/
Lebanon is partly ruled now by Hezbollah. Hezbollah has no reason to be kind to those exiled from Israel, or Israel, and won't do anything that may make those exiled want to stay in Lebanon as they are to be used to destroy Israel. Many have gone to Europe. We are seeing a polarization. On the same day:
Why Are Leading European Countries Helping Iran?
Vice President Mike Pence lashed out at some of America’s closest allies for shielding the doomed 2015 nuclear accord with Iran. Pence accused France, Germany, and the United Kingdom of launching a new financial mechanism in the hope of evading biting US sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
The European Union provided a much-needed financial lifeline to the regime in Tehran when it set up the so-called Special Purpose Vehicle (SVP) in January — a barter system that allows Europe and Iran to trade goods and forgo the use of currency. The mechanism, Pence charged, is “an ill-advised step that will only strengthen Iran, weaken the EU, and create still more distance between Europe and the United States.”
The European Union’s shameful conduct undermines bipartisan US efforts to hold Iran accountable for its illicit nuclear and non-nuclear activities.
In the struggle for fundamental freedom, one would expect the European Union — an institution founded on the principles of liberty and democracy — to stand in solidarity with the Iranian people against their oppressors. Instead, Europe has so far sent the opposite message.
Lured by lucrative trade deals with Iran, policymakers across Europe’s capitals have turned a blind eye to the suffering of peaceful Iranians who are lingering in prison or have ended up in unmarked graves.
Over the last few months alone, Iran has made headlines in the Western, Israeli, and Arab press for its use of terrorism. Whether reporting on Tehran’s assassinations of political opponents on foreign soil, terror plots in Europe, the fighters and ammunitions it sent to Syria, or inference in Yemen’s brutal civil war, Iran’s behavior just keeps getting worse.
The Islamic Republic is the top state sponsor of terrorism in the world. Iran’s notorious Revolutionary Guard Corps is the largest terror organization on the planet, even bigger than the Islamic State and al Qaeda. The regime in Tehran has also committed innumerable terrorist attacks through its terrorist proxies, such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Gaza-based Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Arab states readily acknowledge the aid that Iran gives to these terrorist groups. Speaking at the Middle East conference in Poland, the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates were united in their condemnation for Iran.
Saudi’s foreign affairs minister, Adel Al-Jubeir, said that Iran’s belligerent activities destabilize the region, thus making Israeli-Palestinian peace impossible to achieve. “Look at the Palestinians: Who is supporting Hamas and Islamic Jihad, and undercutting the Palestinian Authority? Iran,” he said, going on to cite conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and Yemen, where Iran also plays a malignant role.
Meanwhile, Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa noted, “We grew up talking about the Israel-Palestine issue as the most important issue.” However, he said, “then, at a later stage, we saw a bigger challenge, we saw a more toxic one — in fact the [most] toxic one in our history — that came from the Islamic Republic.”
With the launching of the SVP and Europe’s continued efforts to salvage the 2015 nuclear accord, Iran has gained more time to surge forward in its nuclear pursuits, while retaining the dangerous infrastructure needed to stockpile more uranium, and continuing to finance its deadly foreign adventurism. https://www.algemeiner.com/2019/02/21/why-are-leading-european-countries-helping-iran/
We have a striking line up: on one side the Europeans with Iran, on the other side America and the Arabs, including Bahrain. Since the Trump era the alignment predicted in Ezekiel 38 or Iran-Persia on one side versus the Arabs and Merchant nations on the other is being pulled out, and now suddenly it is into the open glare of the global spotlight.
Whether Germany would follow is debatable. But this move fits into a context of Britain leaving Europe. Britain is distancing itself from the Iran axis, as would be expected in the role of the Merchants in Ezekiel 38 where they oppose Persia.
21 February 2019 the end of NATO the America Turkish alliance broken
Amid fallout with Turkey, Trump blocks transfer of F-35 fighter jets:
As Turkey strengthens ties with Russia, Washington takes steps to roll back the sale of critical defense assets to Erdoğan’s regime.
The Pentagon, reporting to Congress in late November, noted that Turkey’s acquisition of the S-400 missile systems from Moscow could enable Turkey’s potential ejection from the F-35 program, in addition to purchasing other weapons such as Lockheed’s F-16 fighter, UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters and Boeing’s CH-47F Chinook helicopter.
“We will not stand idly by while NATO allies purchase weapons from our adversaries,” said U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday in a warning to Ankara. “We cannot ensure the defense of the West if our allies grow dependent on the East.”
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan confirmed on Monday the purchase and said that there would be no undoing of the decision.“Having the S-400 from Russia is an outcome of this pursuit,” Erdoğan declared to supporters Monday. “Now [Washington], you tell us to give up purchasing the S-400 [but] … don’t provide us joint production and financial support.”
Aykan Erdemir,“Washington’s attempt to use positive incentives to encourage Ankara to choose Patriot air defense system over the Russian S-400 system has failed to deliver results”
“At this point, Erdoğan seems to be strongly committed to his deepening partnership with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, and is unlikely to be swayed by Washington’s positive or negative incentives,” added Erdemir. “Erdoğan has been pivoting Turkey away from the transatlantic alliance and its values, putting U.S.-Turkish relations on a crash course, and 2019 might therefore mark the lowest point in bilateral relations.”
Diliman Abdulkader “It’s also important to note that this is not just America’s position but other NATO allies as well, Turkey is [endangering] the security bloc.”worldisraelnews
23 February 2019 the End of NATO
Spiegel on the February 12 “Dump NATO” article from Christian Whiton:
“A rich continent with a $17 trillion economy --more than 10 times the size of Russia's --does not need America to underwrite its defense,” he writes. NATO, Whiton believes, "is little more than a mechanism for Old Europe to freeload off of America." Spiegel responds, And along with NATO, Whiton also throws the entire canon of Western values onto the trash heap of history. "Most of the countries in Old Europe have chosen atheism, globalism, multiculturalism and decadent decline," he writes. "What exactly are we defending?"
NATO has protected Germany for 70 years, the anniversary is to be celebrated this December in Washington, D.C. But the event could ultimately be reminiscent of the 40th anniversary of East Germany, which was observed in October 1989, just weeks before the fall of the Berlin Wall. The structures still exist, but they have become fragile and basically everyone has come to realize that they are no longer stable. The problem, though, is that Germany is dependent on NATO. Indeed, all of Europe is militarily dependent on the U.S., both on America's conventional armed forces and on its nuclear capabilities.
Markus Ederer "Russia is very close to China. We in Europe must not resign ourselves to this in the long term." Trump has played only a marginal role in this development. As such, it is misguided to think that everything might return to the way they used to be once Trump's tenure has ended.. The third consideration revolves around Franco-German relations. It is, in fact, the prerequisite, because European defense can only work if Germany and France work much more closely together
It will only be a matter of time that the protection of America is dispensed with in a alliance with Russia.
26 February 2019 Britain Bans Political wing of Hezbollah
Hezbollah has only one aim in life to destroy Israel: they were formed from the mes of the war against Israel. Since Israel was forced to give control of their wins in the Lebanon war away, Hezobollah has grown.
Hezbollah’s so-called political wing has been allowed to parade through the streets of Europe while calling for the destruction of the State of Israel. Large Hezbollah-organized rallies have been held in major European cities like London and Berlin. If the British parliament approves the decision to outlaw all of Hezbollah, it will likely put an end to overt Hezbollah rallies in the streets of London. More importantly, it could initiate a chain reaction that undermines Hezbollah’s financial viability. It is a serious setback for the Iran-Hezbollah-Syria axis to finance its costly expansionist policies in the Middle East.
27 February 2019 Turkey buys RussianDefence system
Turkey’s foreign minister confirmed that Ankara’s purchase of the Russian-made S-400 missile defense system is a “done deal,” despite opposition from the United States which has pleaded with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to instead purchase the American-made Patriot system. The decision, if actualized, could lead to a major standoff between Turkey and Western countries, as the S-400 is not inter-operable with NATO military hardware. Media Line Mideast Daily News
Turkey is not longer a bulwark against Russian expansion, rather the opposite. Russia is now a 'guard' to Turkey.
28 February 2019
World Trade Organisation has agreed the UK can join its Government Procurement Agreement (GPA) as a non-EU member, protecting access to a market worth as much as £1.3 trillion.
Without the deal, companies risked losing the ability to bid for work across the globe. WTO members agreed to let Britain into the agreement last November, but the formal completion has come just weeks ahead of March 29, the day the UK is supposed to leave the EU.
“This is an important win for British diplomacy as we take our place on the world stage,” said Liam Fox, the International Trade Secretary. ‘This is an important win for British diplomacy as we take our place on the world stage’ telegraph.co.uk/business

4 March 2019 America merging Jerusalem Consul to PA with Isareli Embassy
The US Consulate General in Jerusalem, which, for decades has operated independently of the US Embassy and served as an ad-hoc American embassy to the Palestinians, is expected to merge on Monday with the US Embassy and come under the authority of US Ambassador David Friedman.
The Consulate General was the outgrowth of the US diplomatic presence first established in the city, in 1844 in the Old City near the Jaffa Gate. Toward the end of the century, it moved to a new building on Hanevi’im Street, and then in 1912 to its current site on Agron Street in a historic building, which was one of the first buildings built outside of the Old City in 1868. jpost.com
This will reduce the power of the PA, and so increase apparent safety in Isarel. see above.
4 March 2019 Russia in Syria
Russia and Israel share the goal of removing all foreign troops from Syria, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday at the weekly cabinet meeting….Diplomatic sources said last week that this would exclude Russia, which had a military presence in Syria even before the beginning of the civil war. Jpost
This means all except Russia...including Isarel and America, and Turkey and Iran.. this is to Russia's advantage, and as expected as Gog is a 'guard'
Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them. (Eze 38:7)

The Bible shows that in Yahweh’s plan men are often raised from obscurity to power to achieve his will. Can this be applied to Donald Trump? Many Americans hate him and the Democrats are trying everything in their power to topple him from the Presidency, to smear him and defame him.
Over all of history the servants of God have known the signs of the times: their times. They have seen the direction of events toward the Kingdom of God on earth replacing the kingdoms, republics and democracies of humans.
We were asked what early documents establish that Rosh of Ezekiel 38 is Russia. The answer is in 2 parts, as we explain the trajectory from fulfilled prophecy in history to prophecy yet to be fulfilled.
Events, are moving at such a pace that we don't have time to analyse those with significance in depth.
