Check out this classic BBC deception

The idea in the article is that a great deal of the troubles in the middle east are due to the British (and the French) for carving up the place with straight lines on a map.

Actually, all the troubles are because the countries planning to afflict, and presently also afflicting, Israel are experiencing recompense for their intentions and actions. What is really happening is that the difficulties of the region are being exacerbated under the divine displeasure – hold your head up, brits 😉 and don’t believe this BBC spin.

Are the Syrian/Egyptian/Iraqi instabilities due to the British and their aristocratic imperialistic cartographic vision? Or are these countries that threaten Israel with extinction in past or present suffering the consequence of their hatred? Arab spring ? You decide.

Joe 3:1  “For behold, in those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,

Joe 3:2  I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will enter into judgment with them there, on behalf of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations and have divided up my land,
Joe 3:3  and have cast lots for my people, and have traded a boy for a prostitute, and have sold a girl for wine and have drunk it.
Joe 3:4  “What are you to me, O Tyre and Sidon, and all the regions of Philistia? Are you paying me back for something? If you are paying me back, I will return your payment on your own head swiftly and speedily.
Joe 3:5  For you have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried my rich treasures into your temples.
Joe 3:6  You have sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks in order to remove them far from their own border.
Joe 3:7  Behold, I will stir them up from the place to which you have sold them, and I will return your payment on your own head.
Joe 3:8  I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the people of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans, to a nation far away, for the LORD has spoken.”

Psa 83:1  A Song. A Psalm of Asaph. O God, do not keep silence; do not hold your peace or be still, O God!

Psa 83:2  For behold, your enemies make an uproar; those who hate you have raised their heads.
Psa 83:3  They lay crafty plans against your people; they consult together against your treasured ones.
Psa 83:4  They say, “Come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more!”
Psa 83:5  For they conspire with one accord; against you they make a covenant–
Psa 83:6  the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites,
Psa 83:7  Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Psa 83:8  Asshur also has joined them; they are the strong arm of the children of Lot. Selah
Psa 83:9  Do to them as you did to Midian, as to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon,
Psa 83:10  who were destroyed at En-dor, who became dung for the ground.
Psa 83:11  Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
Psa 83:12  who said, “Let us take possession for ourselves of the pastures of God.” 
Psa 83:13  O my God, make them like whirling dust, like chaff before the wind. 
Psa 83:14  As fire consumes the forest, as the flame sets the mountains ablaze,
Psa 83:15  so may you pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your hurricane!
Psa 83:16  Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek your name, O LORD.
Psa 83:17  Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever; let them perish in disgrace,
Psa 83:18  that they may know that you alone, whose name is the LORD, are the Most High over all the earth.

Now, as this site likes numbers, let’s do a little counting:-

Amalek *
(the inhabitants of) Tyre

* Amalek – this highlights the historical arena as the Amalekites were finally wiped out in Hezekiah’s day – weren’t they?

So that’s a confederacy of TEN who form the strong arm of the children of Lot

Do unto them as:-

Make them as:-

Yup, that’s SEVEN.

TEN and SEVEN, sounds familiar, doesn’t it? You can see that the beast’s blueprint is sketched out even here. See unveiling and ten for more about the heads and the horns.

While we are at it:-

Rev 12:3  And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. 

Rev 13:1  And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads.

Can you spot the difference in the numbers here?

The dragon has diadems/authority on the seven mountain kingdoms of history.

The end time beast will receive power (diadems) from the TEN kings.
as in:-
Rev 17:12  And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast.

Getting carried away now. Note  in Psalm 83, Seven rulers. Each ruler is an individual character in psalm 83, while the ten are kingdoms. The Seven heads of the beast similarly have individual ‘characters’ or ‘cultures’, just as greek culture is different from Medo-persian culture is different from babylonian culture, etc.

ISIS appears that ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria), the most hardline group linked to al-Qaeda according to the BBC,  is now making quite a show in Northern Syria..

For a few years now, I have been convinced that the little horn of Daniel shall arise from Mosul (near old nineveh), which is where AQI  (Al Queda in Iraq) extorts money from businesses, according to the CFR (so, it might be true hoho). 
Looks like the beginnings of this beast’s political apparatus are taking shape. 

This quote comes from the Companion Bible revised edition, Daniel chapter 8:-

    9, And out of the one of them came forth a little horn [the Antichrist, at the time of the end],which grew and became exceeding great, toward the south [Egypt], and toward the east [Babylonia and Persia], and toward the pleasant land [the land of Israel].
    23, And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressions have filled up their measures, a king of mighty presence [the antichrist], and skilled in dissimulation, shall stand up.     24, And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall succeed, and do it with effect, and shall destroy the mighty ones and People of the holy ones.     25, And through his policy also he shall cause deceit to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by their prosperity shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes [the Messiah]; but he shall be broken without hand.


Wait for Me

Zephaniah 3:8 “Therefore  wait for me,” declares the LORD, “for the day when I rise up to seize the prey. For my decision is  to gather nations, to assemble kingdoms, to pour out upon them my indignation, all my burning anger; for in the fire of my jealousy  all the earth shall be consumed.

This verse has been a focus of mine for a few years now, perhaps because it always provides great comfort by explaining this modern world’s political dynamics but also because it always sets me on this gospel rock:-

1 Thessalonians 1:10:- 

“and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.”

From the Companion Bible regarding Zephaniah 3:8:-

Therefore, &c. The Massorah (Ap. 30 and Ap. 93) calls attention to the fact that this verse (v. 8) contains all the letters of the Heb. alphabet, including the five final letters. This implies that the verse takes in the whole purpose of Jehovah concerning Israel.

Today, I am just beginning to realize that there is even more to this verse than I thought.
