Prophecy Update 2016-01-31

Sunday, 31 January 2016

-For today’s prophecy update I’d like to address some of the prophetically significant developments taking place in the last week.  -Sadly, they went unnoticed by virtue of the wall-to-wall coverage of the presidential election with the Iowa caucuses tomorrow. -While I certainly do not wish to be dismissive of the elections importance, I do have a problem when it eclipses everything else.

-What follows, in no particular order, are several events that took place last week, that I believe are of significance prophetically.

We’ll begin with Iran’s President, Rohani’s private audience with the Pope at the Vatican. This to me has enormous implications, especially in light of The Times of Israel reporting that Rouhani had asked the pope to pray for him after private talks at the Vatican, during this, his first visit to Rome.

I suppose it should come as no surprise that the now legitimized Iranian regime, would flex their satanic muscles concerning the Holocaust on the heels of Wednesday’s International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The Jerusalem Post reported that “…Iran's supreme leader on Wednesday once again repeated provocative assertions about the Holocaust, defying the world on a day that it paused to remember the victims of the Nazi genocide in Europe.

-Suffice it to say, this is exactly what we’re told would happen, such that, all of the nations particularly Iran will be against Israel. -Moreover, we’re also told in Psalm 83 that there would be a cunning plan to wipe Israel off the map so she’s a nation no more. -I would suggest that this is already in motion and it’s gaining traction, unfortunately right here in the United States of all places.

Monday, January 25th, The Jerusalem Post -NPR illustrative photo wipes Israel off the map. In an article published on National Public Radio's (NPR) website Monday, a map of the Middle East failed to include Israel, labeling Palestine in its place. The map was an illustration accompanying the article "What Are You Afraid Of In 2016? Globetrotters Share Their Fears." The article referenced travelers' fears of Islamic radicalization and extremism in the region.

Add to this what we’re told in Ezekiel 38, which is a prophecy about an alliance led by Russia and Iran to attack Israel for what many believe is their new found natural gas and oil. On Friday, The Jerusalem Post published an Analysis about “Using Israel's gas to cement ties.” What’s interesting about this event was that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipra made history with their three-way summit, forming an emerging alliance of the three eastern Mediterranean nations.

What may be even more interesting is this Arutz Sheva report from Thursday, January 28th, quoting a former Libyan official who stated that the Islamic State got Qaddafi's chemical weapons. Quoting the article, …the weapons that fell into the hands of ISIS “were smuggled out of Libya, as the world knows. I believe that the weapons that reached Syria originated in Libya.” This brings to the forefront the prophecy concerning Syria in Isaiah 17.         

Lastly, doubtless you heard about the grand jury decision to indict, not Planned Parenthood, but the under cover videographers who exposed Planned Parenthood for selling baby’s body parts. On Monday, January 25th, Forbes published an article with the headline, “GOP Prosecutor: Abortion Foes Committed Crime In Fetal Tissue Case, Not Planned Parenthood.” … The Houston Chronicle said this afternoon that videographers who worked for the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress, …were indicted by a Harris County grand jury of “tampering with a governmental record.” If found guilty, the charge carries a prison term of up to 20 years, according to reports. [They were] also indicted on a charge of selling human organs.

I thought it was rather ironic that many were posting comments and publishing articles about the so-called “coincidence” of the historic blizzard named “Jonas,” which is the same name as “Jonah” hit Washington D.C. on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

I also found it rather ironic that on Tuesday, Fox News would report about the 'Doomsday Clock,' which they’re now saying reflects a grave threat to world. Here’s some of what they had to say, “Rising tension between Russia and the U.S., North Korea's recent nuclear test and a lack of aggressive steps to address climate change are putting the world under grave threat, scientists behind a “Doomsday Clock" that measures the likelihood of a global cataclysm said Tuesday. …"Unless we change the way we think, humanity remains in serious danger," said Lawrence Krauss, chair of the bulletin's Board of Sponsors. …The scientists behind the bulletin adjusted the clock from five minutes-to-midnight to three minutes-to-midnight last year...

-Here’s the bottom line in closing, this aforementioned “Doomsday Clock” I truly believe could strike midnight at anytime now. -The truth of the matter is, when it does, it will be very sudden and it will come at a time when the world is not expecting it to. -If there was ever a time for those who have never called upon the name of Lord to be saved, I would submit the time is now.

John 14:29 NIV  I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe.

John 13:19 NIV  "I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am He.

Luke 21:28 NKJV Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."
