Jerusalem Betrayed Isa 34:8 For it is the day of the LORD’S vengeance, the year of recompense in the controversy of Zion.
Four things to consider How Jerusalem has been described in the prophets as betrayed Evidence of the deception and betrayal The Nations who will Invade Israel The place of World religions in the end time
How Jerusalem has been described in the prophets as betrayed
Jerusalem betrayed Eze 36:2 Thus saith the Lord GOD: Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha! and, The ancient high places are ours in possession: Psa 83:2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. Psa 83:3 They take crafty counsel against thy people, and consult together against thy hidden ones. Psa 83:4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. Psa 83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent; against thee do they make a covenant:
Jerusalem betrayed Psa 2:1 Why do the nations rage, and the peoples imagine a vain thing? Psa 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Psa 2:3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
Joe 3:2 I will gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. Joe 3:3 and they have cast lots for my people: and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
The time of the end in Daniels Visions (RV) And through his policy he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and in their security shall he destroy many: he shall also stand up against the prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. (Viet) Ng ư ời dùng quyền thuật làm nên ch ư ớc gian dối mình đư ợc thắng lợi. Trong ḷng ng ư ời tự làm mình nên lớn, và trong lúc dân ở yên ổn, ng ư ời sẽ hủy diệt nhiều kẻ; ng ư ời nổi lên chống với vua của các vua, nh ư ng ng ư ời sẽ bị bẻ g ă y chẳng bởi tay ng ư ời ta. (YLT) `And by his understanding he hath also caused deceit to prosper in his hand, and in his heart he exerteth himself, and by ease he destroyeth many; and against the prince of princes he standeth--and without hand he is broken.
Jer 25:27 And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Drink ye, and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you. Jer 25:28 And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at thine hand to drink, then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts: Ye shall surely drink. Jer 25:31 A noise shall come even to the end of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; as for the wicked, he will give them to the sword, saith the LORD. Jer 25:32 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest shall be raised up from the uttermost parts of the earth. Zec 12:2 behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of reeling unto all the peoples round about, and upon Judah also shall it be in the siege against Jerusalem. Zec 12:3 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded; and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it.

UNITED NATIONS 50/22 A of 4 December 1995, in which it determined that all legislative and administrative measures and actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, which have altered or purported to alter the character and status of the Holy City of Jerusalem, in particular the so-called "Basic Law" on Jerusalem and the proclamation of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, were null and void and must be rescinded forthwith, the proclamation of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, were null and void and must be rescinded forthwith,

False hope and lies There was some talk this week of Hamas agreeing a truce with Israel. However Hamas’s political leader Khaled Meshaal speaking in Syria, where he lives in exile, said the Palestinian state must have "Jerusalem as its capital, with genuine sovereignty, without settlements". Mr Abbas who met President Putin last week met President Bush this week. Mr Bush said he was committed to "a viable state, a state that doesn't look like Swiss cheese, a state that provides hope". The reference to Swiss cheese is the fact that on the West Bank there are many settlements that Israel wants to keep. If they do keep them then they would be pockets of Jewish land in amongst the new Palestinian state. Hence a map would look like Swiss cheese. In effect President Bush is saying that Israel must withdraw from the whole of the West Bank not some of it. In Joel 3 we read of the nations who have “parted” God’s land. The word parted means “apportioned” or “divided”.
THE BUSH FAMILY OLIGARCHY Funding the Hitler Project In October 1942, ten months after entering World War II, America was preparing its first assault against Nazi military forces. Prescott Bush was managing partner of Brown Brothers Harriman. His 18-year-old son George, the future U.S. President, had just begun training to become a naval pilot. On Oct. 20, 1942, the U.S. government ordered the seizure of Nazi German banking operations in New York City which were being conducted by Prescott Bush. Under the Trading with the Enemy Act, the government took over the Union Banking Corporation, in which Bush was a director. The U.S. Alien Property Custodian seized Union Banking Corp.'s stock shares, all of which were owned by Prescott Bush, E. Roland 'Bunny' Harriman, three Nazi executives, and two other associates of Bush. 1. …….. The facts presented here must be known, and their implications reflected upon, for a proper understanding of President George Herbert Walker Bush and of the danger to mankind that he represents. The President's family fortune was largely a result of the Hitler project. The powerful Anglo-American family associations, which later boosted him into the Central Intelligence Agency and up to the White House, were his father's partners in the Hitler project
The controversy of Zion As Israel this week celebrates 60 years since Statehood it faces uncertainty on all sides. In the USA Obama a possible new American President is said to be Pro Arab, and is saying little on Middle east issues. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert looks to soon be found guilty of corruption. We also wonder is he really true to Israel’s cause? "According to frequently-published statements by you and some of the ministers in your government," Ben-Yosef's letter to Olmert states, "you intend to negotiate with Israel's enemies - including Mr. Abu Mazen, the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority -- regarding the re-division of Jerusalem and the ceding of parts of the city -- in violation of Clauses 5 and 6 of this law."
MOSCOW (AP) - Russia on Thursday sharply criticized Israel for its offensive against Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon, saying it went "far beyond the boundaries of an anti-terrorist operation" and repeating calls for an immediate cease-fire. The Foreign Ministry said Russia affirms the need to fight terrorism and called for the immediate release of captive Israeli soldiers, but it added that "the unprecedented scale of the casualties and destruction" in Lebanon indicates that Israel is using too much force. The comment echoed a statement by President Vladimir Putin, who said while hosting a summit of the Group of Eight nations Saturday that Russia had the impression Israel was "pursuing wider goals" than the return of abducted soldiers.
The Nations who will Invade Israel
Ezekiel Jewish Prophet Old Testament Hebrew Eze 38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Eze 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, Eze 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: Head or Chief Ruler of all the Russians Sythian or German
Who is the Invader of Israel? Many dispute the translation of the ancient names Many different opinions are expounded on who is, Gog, Meshech, Tubal, Gomer of Ezek 38 Who are these tribes?
The original tribes Gen 10:2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. Gen 10:3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. Gen 10:6 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Put, and Canaan. Gen 10:21 And unto Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the elder brother of Japheth, …………… Gen 10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and of these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
, after their generations, in their Rev 16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. Joe 3:2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. Zec 14:2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Prophets all speak the same message Armageddon Gen 10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and of these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
Sons of Japeth Cacasians Isa 66:18 For I know their works and their thoughts: the time cometh, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and shall see my glory. Isa 66:19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send such as escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the nations. Probably from the same as H3196; effervescing (that is, hot and active); Javan, the name of a son of Joktan, and of the race (Ionians, that is, Greeks) descended from him, with their territory; Gen 10:2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
Who will Invade Israel? Of the Nations of the World who will lead a new confederacy against Israel? Daniel Ch 2 and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time : and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. (Dan Ch 12)
The Image in its entirety represents the last Kingdom of Men or Beast Empire Dan 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them in pieces. Dan 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken in pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing–floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
The Image feet - The fourth Beast Dan 7:19 Then I desired to know the truth concerning the fourth beast, which was diverse from all of them, exceeding terrible, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; Dan 2:41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay (YLT) As to the toes of the feet, part of them iron, and part of them clay: some part of the kingdom is strong, and some part of it is brittle.
Russian Fleet Worries Israel Russia’s plans to restore its permanent naval presence in the Mediterranean Sea are causing serious concern in Israel. The Israelis think that the Syrian ports the Russians are most likely to use will turn into major centers of electronic surveillance and air defense centers and, as such, threats to Israel’s national security. Russian experts say that Moscow’s plans are unlikely to come to fruition any time soon. There is neither the money nor the technical capacity for it. Commander of the Russian Navy Fleet Adm. Vladimir Masorin announced Russia’s plans to return to the Mediterranean at the end of last week in Sevastopol. He did not say whether new bases would be established in the region. It is commonly known, however, that such bases could only be opened in Syria, where ports were used for the same purposes by the USSR. As Kommersant reported on June 2, 2006, Russia is already dredging the port of Tartus and has begun to build a dock in the Syrian port of Latakia. A defense Ministry source at that time revealed that Moscow plans to a squadron of military vessels led by the missileKommersant
Russian army chief: We'll use nuclear weapons if threatened General Yuri Baluyevsky says Moscow has no plans to attack anyone, but could use nuclear weapons in preventive strikes in case of a major threat Associated Press Published: 01.19.08, 12:04 / Israel NewsIsrael News Russia's military chief of staff said Saturday that Moscow could use nuclear weapons in preventive strikes in case of a major threat, the latest aggressive remarks from increasingly assertive Russian authorities. Nuclear Threat Livni: Inconceivable that Russia is supplying Iran with nuclear fuel / Roni Sofer Foreign affairs minister meets with Russia's Lavrov in Moscow, slams shipments of fuel to Bushehr nuclear plant despite Tehran's refusal to stop enriching uranium. Livni also defends Israel's response to Qassam rocket attacks: 'Unlike terrorists, the IDF does not aim its weapons towards women, the elderly and children' Full story "We have no plans to attack anyone, but we consider it necessary for all our partners in the world community to clearly understand... that to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Russia and its allies, military forces will be used, including preventively, including with the use of nuclear weapons," General Yuri Baluyevsky said
Israel is looking into reports that Russia plans to sell 250 advanced long-range Sukhoi-30 fighter jets to Iran in an unprecedented billion-dollar deal. A Sukhoi 30 jet of the Indain air force (illustration) Photo: Courtesy According to reports, in addition to the fighter jets, Teheran also plans to purchase a number of aerial fuel tankers that are compatible with the Sukhoi and capable of extending its range by thousands of kilometers. Defense officials said the Sukhoi sale would grant Iran long-range offensive capabilities. Eze 38:5 Persia, Cush, and Put with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
Heir to Germany and Russia William II (German: Wilhelm II) (born Prince Frederick William Victor Albert of Prussia; German: Prinz Friedrich Wilhelm Viktor Albert von Preußen) (27 January 1859 – 4 June 1941) While the Bolsheviks exterminated as many Romanovs as they could get their hands on, many survived. When the Soviet Union fell, the Pretender to the Throne of Russia was the Grand Duke Vladimir, second cousin to the young Grand Duchesses. Now the honor passes to his daughter Maria, who ironically married a great- grandson of Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany. Their son George, who will be only 21 in 2002, is now the Heir to the Romanovs. I have seen no notice taken either of him in the international gossip press or of what kind of presence he or his mother Maria may have in current Russian politics.
Russia is Europe's natural ally Vladimir Putin Two thousand years ago Roman soldiers united enormous territories from Britain to Athens, from the Rhine to the Iberian peninsula, by the sword. Europe has survived many destructive wars and the collapse of empires. It overcame the dictatorship of tyrants and the horrors of Nazism, but at the same time lived through the Renaissance and sowed the seeds of democracy. It was Europe that formulated the noble ideas of humanism and the Enlightenment, which formed the foundation of European civilisation. A stable, prosperous and united Europe is in our interests. European integration is an integral part of the emerging multipolar world order. That the EU is becoming an increasingly authoritative and influential centre of world politics, considerably contributing to regional and global security, is important. The development of multifaceted ties with the EU is Russia’s principled choice. In the foreseeable future, for obviousreasons, we have no intention of either joining the EU or establishing any form of institutional association with it. Russia intends to build its relations with the EU on a pragmatic basis with a treaty and a strategic partnership. In this regard I agree with Romano Prodi’s view of Russian-EU relations: “Anything but institutions.” We are prepared to develop this partnership to a maximum extent, expecting of course that our partners will meet us halfway along this road.
I am convinced that the development of relations between Russia and the EU has logically led us to the need for a new treaty on strategic partnership. The treaty should become an instrument capable of ensuring a higher level of economic integration and interaction, providing for freedom and security on the European continent. We understand all the difficulties of our partners in developing one position. We agree that it takes time. It is also clear that any pause in the dialogue is always going to be counterproductive. CROSSROADS OF COOPERATION: THE FUTURE OF EU-RUSSIAN RELATIONS AND THE IMPACT OF THE BALTIC STATES Iris Kempe and Daniel Grotzky* In 2007 the relations between Russia and the European Union have reached a critical juncture. As their common border has steadily expanded over the accession rounds of 2004 and 2007, so too have the significance and intensity of Russia and Europe’s relationship. Accession has not only broadened the range of common issues, but also increased the number of actors within the EU who hold high stakes in how Europe’s Russia policy is conducted. Among the ten Central and Eastern European states now in the EU,
The place of World religions in the end time
Rome became the home of a state based religion. “the Roman Catholic Religion” We face a world seeking to find itself and religion is mixing more with Politics Revelation tells us of a harlot woman riding a Beast The woman represents the Church intoxicated The opposite to the chaste Virgin “the bride of Christ” an adulteress woman Constantine started the Political nature of Religion
Religion and Power A confederated Christian Europe with Russia Auth, Church Numbers 145 million members World Wide, second to Rome. IF? In collaboration with Islamic States With One view in Mind To destroy Israel and take Control of Jerusalem. Would bring a huge political force behind the military strength of the combined nations.
Russian Authodox Church
Russia embraces its church, distancing western faiths Headline International Herald Tribune April 24 2008 There was a time after the fall of Communism when small Protestant congregations blossomed here in southwestern Russia, when a church was almost as easy to set up as a general store. Today, this industrial region has become emblematic of the suppression of religious freedom under President Vladimir Putin. Just as the government has tightened control over political life, so, too, has it intruded in matters of faith. The Kremlin's surrogates in many areas have turned the Russian Orthodox Church into a de facto official religion, warding off other Christian denominations that seem to offer the most significant competition for worshipers. They have all but banned proselytizing by Protestants and discouraged Protestant worship through a variety of harassing measures, according to dozens of interviews with government officials and religious leaders across Russia. This close alliance between the government and the Russian Orthodox Church has become a defining characteristic of Putin's tenure, a mutually reinforcing choreography that is usually described here as working "in symphony."
Summary of What we have seen The Magogian host are the sons of Japeth The Son’s of Japeth are most likely European or Caucasian Europe is in the mood to unite as one Power ( Beast ) Russia has a great interest to become united with Europe by treaty Russia is a military concern for Israel Russia Putin is collaborating with the Russian orthodox Church Russia is the main Arms supplier to Israel’s enemies
What can we expect to see further A doctrine emerge in Europe that will bring tolerance to assist in unifying the enemies of Israel An empire emerge that will be different from any that have been before A strange alliance of power that should not mix ( Iron and Clay) A world In such a crisis that all nations will be drawn to Jerusalem China becoming collaborative with Russia or in hostility with America A determined counsel amongst the Islamic Nations to drive out Israel backed by the crafty council of the European Nations.
Isa 51:17 Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of the LORD the cup of his fury; thou hast drunken the bowl of the cup of staggering, and drained it. Isa 51:18 There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth; neither is there any that taketh her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up. Isa 51:19 These two things are befallen thee; who shall bemoan thee? desolation and destruction, and the famine and the sword; how shall I comfort thee? Isa 51:20 Thy sons have fainted, they lie at the top of all the streets, as an antelope in a net; they are full of the fury of the LORD, the rebuke of thy God. Isa 51:21 Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine: Isa 51:22 Thus saith thy Lord the LORD, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of staggering, even the bowl of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again: Isa 51:23 and I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy back as the ground, and as the street, to them that go over.
Official statement of the European Council : One Europe (Copenhagen, 12/13/2002) …… Our common wish is to make Europe a continent of democracy, freedom, peace and progress. The Union will remain determined to avoid new dividing lines in Europe and to promote stability and prosperity within and beyond the new borders of the Union. We are looking forward to working together in our joint endeavour to accomplish these goals. Our aim is One Europe. ” Psa 105:30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings. Rev 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. Rev 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
SUCCESSORS OF ROME: RUSSIA, 862-Present When St. Vladimir accepted Christianity in 989, Russia took the first step in what would become a mission to assume the heritage of Constantinople. the Grand Dukes of Moscow had shaken off the hold of the remaining Mongol successor states, and the "New Rome" of Constantinople had itself fallen to the Turks in 1453, the way was clear for Moscow to become the "Third Rome" and the Duke the "Tsar of All the Russias." Universal Roman pretentions continued after the fall of the Tsars but, unlike Hitler in Germany, the Communists Lenin and Stalin, however tsar-like their power, wished to owe no debt or acknowledge any continuity to the ideology of the earlier empire. The Soviet Union was no successor to Rome or Constantinople but a new synthesis of the dialectic of history. With the Fall of Communism, there may be some rethinking of this.
SUCCESSORS OF ROME: RUSSIA, 862-Present This cover of a book by W. Bruce Lincoln about Russia's czars, the Romanov Dynasty, pictures the dynasty's fascinating symbol, the double-headed phoenix serpent. Double-headed eagle pendant owned by the Czarina. The word "Czar" in Russian means "Caesar. I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest. Winston Churchill, October 1939
The dragon element which Constantine had moved from Rome to Constantinople, continued there until 1453 when the city fell to the Turks. The seat of the dragon was then moved north to Moscow, or "the third Rome" as it became known. Thus, the heirs to the Roman Empire were to be found with the Czar (Caesar) in Russia, with the German Kaiser (Caesar) and with the pope (Pontifex Maximus) in Rome. If these three aspects are brought together, then we would have -- to all intents and purposes -- a revived Roman Empire, or ten-horned beast. The Beast False prophet Dragon
How does this relate to our time Rev 13:4 And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? Rev 17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. Unification “of one mind” What do we have in Europe The Harlot & the Beast
Russia Germany & West Europe Combined Economies Islamic States Catholcism Authodox Christians Why does God use beast to describe the Nations. China
and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions Dan 6:16 Like Daniel feed to the Lions Israel has been persecuted by beasts Nero feed Christians to Lions Appropriate to the behavour of these beast Nations God has described them as beasts And the Corrupted Church as a Harlot riding the Beast Who together will wage war against Jerusalem and God’s Chosen one
What we have seen is the evidence that is in the open Consider the deceit and craft and treachery that is planned already behind the closed doors of the European and Islamic leaders for Jerusalem We see the expressions of these desires in attitudes of the world’s leaders The time of Jacob’s trouble is near. Let us pray for the peace of Jerusalem Conclusion
