War, Peace, Pope, Temple, Syrian, River
I wanted to post something yesterday, but had some trouble accessing my blog. I thought I was going to have to go with a new one, but fortunately I was able to get back into this one.
There is sooo much happening right now, it is hard to fathom it all! Yesterday my wife said I was on a prophetic high, I was so incredulous, and still am, given the hour that I’m working on typing up this blog. As most of you know, the Pope has announced his resignation, and he says that there was no outside pressure to lead him to make this decision. Yet it is interesting that this is the very thing predicted in Tom Horn’s work Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope is Here.
According to the 1,000+ year old prophecy of St. Malachy, the final pope, no. 112 would be Peter the Roman (Petrus Romanus). It would seem foolish had St. Malachy’s prophecy not have been accurate of the last 111 Popes! This prophecy says that Peter the Roman will shepherd his people through many persecutions, and that he will be the false prophet. The fact that St. Malachy’s prophecy has been correct so far, should give us great pause before dismissing this prophecy!
Yesterday, upon hearing the news that the Pope is stepping down, I also had my eye caught by an article saying that Syrian rebels had captured a key dam. According to the press release:
Monday's capture of the al-Furat dam came after rebels seized two smaller dams on the Euphrates River, which flows from Turkey through Syria and into Iraq. Behind al-Furat dam lies Lake Assad, which at 640 square kilometers (247 square miles) is the country's largest water reservoir.[underline mine]
This is highly significant, because Revelation speaks of the Euphrates being dried up in preparation for war on Israel:
Revelation 16:12 12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would be prepared for the kings from the east.
This takeover of the dam most likely is not going to be what dries the Euphrates for that final battle. We’re still about seven or so years away from that. But this definitely gives us a good view of how this scenario could happen.
It ahs been known, and I have discussed it here in previous blogs, that the plans for the next Jewish Temple have been designed, and are ready to be implemented. And not only that, but the priests have been trained, all their clothing and utensils have been designed, built and produced. Everything is waiting for the green light.
That brings us to the current geo-polictical situation. Israel is surrounded by Muslim nations, whose very religion’s goal is the extermination of the Jewish people, the covenant people of El Elyon, the most high G_d. This last week the Israelis fired on a missile shipment being smuggled to Hezbollah inside Syria, one of Iran’s (and Shia Islam’s) proxies. Isaiah 17:1 speaks of the destruction of Damascus, which is still waiting a future fulfillment. As tensions rise in the Middle East, and Islamic fervor over the land of Israel increases, it appears we are about to witness a terrific war, spoken of in Psalm 83, that indicates all of Israel’s neighboring countries conspire together to wipe Israel off the map. We see that this is what is happening today! It would almost make one a believer (Lk. 16:31; Rom. 8:6-8)!
At the speed of prophetic events, we are soon going to see the destruction of Damascus occur, a major Middle East War in which Israel is the victor, in spite of some losses. But Israel will be able to build her third Temple. A peace treaty will be put into place, and quite possibly, by a Syrian (ashur) who has everyone’s interest in mind (Rev. 6:2, Dan. 9:27; Micah 5:5-6).
It has been reported in the news for some time that the Vatican has been after the city of Jerusalem, even since the Crusades! When the next pope steps up, Peter the Roman, he will side with this “man of peace” and even declare that all people are to worship him. And somehow there is going to be a convergence with the alien disclosure, as “in peace” these being come to help us reach our next place in our stages of evolution.
Much is going to happen in this next year to change humanity. Worldviews will be reshaped instantly! At the end of the Mayan calendar, we did enter into a new era, though many of the pieces had been falling into place for decades previously. The Messiah is returning to begin his 1,000 year reign from Jerusalem, but first, the earth must endure the reign of the unholy one! And scripture says of those who reject trusting Yeshua ha Meshach (Jesus the Messiah) as their Lord and Savior,
2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.
