It is clear we are at the door of the Psalm 83 War in prophecy where the Arab nations confederate to form a temporary alliance against Israel to come against them to take their land. The current ceasefire is only happening so that Hamas has time to reload.
Now let me remind you of the prophecy against Damascus: Isaiah 17:1-3 (NIV), A prophecy against Damascus: “See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. 2 The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left to flocks, which will lie down, with no one to make them afraid. 3 The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim, and royal power from Damascus; the remnant of Aram will be like the glory of the Israelites”, declares the Lord Almighty.
Damascus is a 3,000 year old city that has yet to be destroyed. So this is a prophecy waiting to be fulfilled.
In Bill Salus book “The Psalm 83 War”, His teaser paragraphs read, “An ancient prophecy written over 3000 years ago reveals that the Arab states and terrorist populations Hamas & Hezbollah, which presently share common borders with Israel, will soon confederate in order to wipe Israel off of the map. These enemies of Israel are Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Palestinians, Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas that are depicted on the red arrows upon the book cover image, and their mandate is clear: They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” (Psalm 83:4).
Psalm 83 predicts a climactic, concluding Arab-Israeli war that has eluded the discernment of today’s top Bible scholars, and yet, the Middle East stage appears to be set for the fulfillment of this prophecy. While many of today’s top Bible experts are predicting that Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya, and several other countries are going to invade Israel according to the prophecy in Ezekiel 38 that prophesies the War of Gog & Magog, this timely book explains how Psalm 83 occurs before this that will lead to the man of peace coming forward to make a 7 year peace treaty with Israel.
Discover how Israel defeats their ancient Arab enemies, and why Americans need to stand beside Israel in this coming war! This book “The Psalm 83 War”, is an updated version of “Isralestine, The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East”, which was written by the same author. This updated version includes over 17 new chapters and appendices.
WHAT BREAKS OUT SOON WILL BE BETWEEN THE CONFEDERATE STATES AND ISRAEL will be a devastating war on both sides. Read of it in Psalm 83:5-8, “For they have consulted together with one accord; they are confederate against Thee: 6 the tabernacles of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagarites, 7 Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre. 8 Assyria also has joined with them; they have helped the children of Lot.”
Jeremiah 49:19, “Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan against the habitation of the strong (Israel): but I will suddenly make him (Esau) run away from her (Israel): (Abbreviated)
Jeremiah 49:8, “Flee, turn back dwell in the depths, O inhabitants of Dedan (Saudi Arabia). For I will bring the calamity of Esau (Southern Jordan) upon him (Esau’s descendants), the time when I will punish him.”
This event will occur soon well in advance of both the Ezekiel 38 & 39 Iranian and Russian War of Gog & Magog invasion and the tribulation. For remember the Man of peace will help bring a stop to the conflict with a 7 year peace treaty. When this person becomes known this will then start the 7 year tribulation. So who is this man of peace? This would be the man of perdition, the lawless one, the wolf in sheep’s clothing, the Antichrist! Maranatha…………
Russia has the moral right to be there as they were invited. America is not invited and has been asked to leave. I pray this is an isolated incident, and there is no skirmish between both superpowers
This is what the NWO wants, the USA stripped of authority, power, and ridiculed. And, stupid 4SS zombie JB is helping take us down. Wow. In only 100 days. Seriously.
So, with the above, we all know JB is too stupid to run the USA. He's got what, 10 brain cells left. The real question is, WHO IS REALLY RUNNING THE USA? WHO IS SIGNING THE PRESIDENTIAL DECREES? We need answers, and fast.
He’s not the ‘brains’ nor the ‘muscle’ but he’s the sock puppet of some filthy rich evil scum. It’s probably more accurate to say the fallen ones wearing human skins are calling the shots.

A Compendium of Truth, Replete With Indisputable Scriptural Evidence.
Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold
The belief that it's even possible and required to "repent of (TURN FROM)all your sins" to be saved/stay saved is DEFINITIVE PROOF that any such person who believes this theologically false doctrine is not saved!
If the standard for being saved is repenting of 100% of all the individual sins you've ever committed in your lifetime as well as all your future sins committed after you are saved, then every person who has ever lived apart from Jesus would/will be in hell.
Why you ask?
It's IMPOSSIBLE to repent from every sin you've ever committed in your life or will ever commit in the future.
did you know THIS???
GOD DEMANDS PERFECTION!
You must put on HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS by BELIEVING the Gospel!
this is why Lord Jesus is our salvation.
ANY THOUGHT NOT OF FAITH IS A SIN!!
Twist and skip over that one! EVERY TIME you don't have a thought of FAITH or have an unworthy thought(no matter how brief!) IT IS A SIN!
"And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth NOT OF FAITH: for whatsoever is NOT OF FAITH is sin".
SILLY IMAGINATION IS A SIN!! (doesn't matter if you sorrowfully repent or you regret...you've ALREADY done it!!)
"The THOUGHT of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men."
NO SUCH THING AS AN INADVERTENT OR "FORGETFUL" SIN!!
“And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD; though he WIST IT NOT, yet IS HE GUILTY, and shall bear his iniquity.”
You think that you aren't "living in sin" and that your TURNING FROM sin is what keeps you saved instead of HIS BLOOD ATONEMENT?
ALL SIN(past,present and future) was PAID FOR by His Blood atonement if you BELIEVE the Gospel..
It's so typical to parse sin into various "categories" of severity according to one's own particular peccadillo's about what THEY consider a ''sinful'' lifestyle.
Human righteousness is FILTHY to a HOLY GOD!
Don't try to excuse yourself just because you don't do those "VILE" sins... it DOES NOT MATTER..it's ALL SIN!
Most people have SEVENTY THOUSAND THOUGHTS A DAY!
If even 1% them don't meet God's standard of sinless perfection, the average person would have to repent SEVEN HUNDRED TIMES EVERY DAY!
4,900 Times EVERY WEEK!
254,800 Times PER YEAR!
If you get saved when you're 50 years old, you'd have to repent of all individual 12,847,000 sins (just in your thoughts not counting physical sins of the flesh & sins of "omission" that you aren't even aware you've committed.)
If you claim that this is even possible for even one single human being who has ever walked this earth, I've got news for you...YOU'RE LYING AND VERY MUCH DELUSIONAL!!!
First of all, if you were to attempt to repent of every sinful thought (boredom, pride, anger, lust, jealousy, hatred, fear just to name a few of the MANY THOUSANDS), you wouldn't have even one single solitary second to actually DO anything apart from repenting 24x7.
It doesn't even make sense to claim salvation is contingent upon repenting of all your sins.
IT'S NOT POSSIBLE!
Moreover, sin is transgression of the law.
And repenting of sins is FOLLOWING THE LAW.
And we KNOW with 100% certainty that salvation is by God's grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone!
NOT by WORKS (of THE LAW) lest any man should boast. (EPHESIANS 2:8-9)
Therefore, we can be certain that those who claim salvation is by faith in Jesus + FOLLOWING THE LAW (repenting of their sins) believe in and teach a FALSE gospel and are, according to the Apostle Paul, "accursed."
Finally, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, if were even possible to repent 100% perfectly of EVERY sin you've ever committed or will commit in your life, then Jesus died in vain!
But the TRUTH is that The Eternally Existing Son of God, God The Son, Jesus Christ, DIDN'T died the most excruciatingly painful death ever recorded in vain.
He came to SAVE SINNERS!
If we could save ourselves by our perfect obedience to the law (WHICH IS GOD'S STANDARD!), THEN Christ died in vain (which we know IS NOT TRUE!)
He came to defeat sin & death once and for all!
"For God made Him who knew no sin to become sin on our behalf that we would become the righteousness of God in Him." (2nd Corinthians 5:21)
Jesus took our sin on The Cross and when we place our full faith in Him (in His death, burial and resurrection), He IMPUTES His righteousness to us.
Grace if the BOUNDLESS LOVE and MERCY the Father gives us!
And when a person admits they are a sinner in need of a savior and that Jesus is THE Savior who died for ALL their sins, was buried and rose again on the 3rd Day, they are saved forever THROUGH SIMPLE CHILD-LIKE FAITH ALONE!
That is The Gospel! The GOOD NEWS!!!!
"But to him that worketh not, but BELIEVETH ON HIM that justifieth the ungodly, his FAITH is counted for righteousness." (ROMANS 4:5 KJV)
If you've placed your faith in Jesus PLUS your "repenting of your sins" (obeying the law) to be/stay saved I pray you would REPENT (change your mind) from trusting in ANY of YOUR WORKS & Trust in the finished redemption of Jesus Christ ALONE (His Death & Perfectly Sinless
Shed Blood on Calvary's Cross, His Burial & His Resurrection justifying you in God The Father's Eyes) for the remission of all your sins & eternal life!
"For ALL who call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ WILL be saved." (Romans 10:13)
"By the authority of the Black Pope, and at the behest of Bilderberg," perhaps would be a fitting reply.
Numbers 10:9 (KJV) And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.
But tell me what business did the USA have in Vietnam? Or Panama or Iraq ? Or on bombing the Serbs ? Or natural allies .
What business does the UK and the USA have in anyone elses country ?
Just because our guns are bigger ,that's it .we live in a world where might is right.
Britain actually threaten to nuc Saudi during the 70s all crises .( LOOK IT UP ITS A FACT) .
We are bullies of the worst kind .
NOT A FORCE FOR GOOD LIKE YOU YANKS FOOL YOURSELF INTO BELIEVING.
Going round the world installing friendly governments by force or foul play doesn't make you good people , saying it's for there own good doesn't cut the mustard .
You have everything you could every need at home in America ,what a fantastic country God has blessed you with ...SO STAY THERE .
and although I agree with what Hal has to say I don't agree with saying " it's all the democrats fault" yes Obama was awful ,but so we're all your presidents .
You elect or tolerate the government .it rules by concent .
Your government YOUR FAULT
If you don't like it DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT .
The US and the UK are not two different countries.
It's two sides of the same coin.
Remember the quote ,"Tony Blair is George bushes poodle" ? Well I can't remember who said it maybe mandlson, asked about that he said " I think you'll find that Bush is in fact Tony's rottweiler!"
It was mentioned in the press that every piece of intel that flashes across a screen in the Langley, the pentagon NSA or any other alphabet agency , shows up at the same time on the screen at GCHQ and visa versa . making us ( at least since 9/11) basically for security purposes one nation .
I mentioned the oil crisis 1974 , Ted heath gave the Saudi royal family two Weeks to turn the oil back on or he would use Britains nuclear " deterrent" to leave the oilfields glowing in the darks for the next few thousand years ,the Saudis were told ,if we can't have your oil ,no one will .a deal was reached the Saudis got more for there oil and never threaten to turn the Taps off again .
To threaten a non nuclear country like this ,and to use those weapons in what was a business negotiation ,shows you who you are dealing with .
By they this story is straight from the BBC .
We even admit doing it !!!
Years later during violation of longstanding treaties, Indian braves west of the Mississippi would ask the same.
Over and over around the world for 150 years and right up to today.
The only justifiable war is one of defense. The empire is the disease. One cannot be a Constitutional Republic, respecting all members equally, while maintaining an empire for the benefit of the few with layers of legal fiction.
It will collapse. When it collapses it will not go peacefully into the night. It will scream and kick, claw and knash teeth. It is our generation that is witness to this.
There are good people everywhere, the only thing different is the ratio.
Israel’s Top Commander Finally Spills Secrets Of “Invisible War” In Syria
Originally appeared at ZeroHedge
For years Israel denied allegations that it had a role in funding and weaponizing the anti-Assad insurgency in Syria, and more often military officials responded “no comment” even when confronted with overwhelming evidence of Israeli weapons documented in al-Qaeda linked insurgents’ hands, but this all changed in a new British Sunday Times interview with outgoing Israeli army commander Gadi Eisenkot, who has finally confirmed the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) supplied weapons to rebels across the border “for self-defense,” and further perhaps more stunningly, has admitted to long waging an “invisible war in Syria” that involved “thousands of attacks”.
The interview constitutes the first time that any current top Israeli military or government official has fully acknowledged sending anything beyond “humanitarian supplies,” such as medical aid to Syrian militants seeking to topple the Assad government; and yet it still appears the country’s military chief is slow playing the confirmation, only acknowledging the IDF provided “light weapons” — even after years of reporting has definitively uncovered an expansive Israeli program to arm dozens of insurgent groups and pay their salaries, including known affiliates of al-Qaeda in Syria.
This comes after the Syrian government has for years accused Israel of partnering with the west and gulf countries, such as the US, UK, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey of funding and weaponizing an al-Qaeda/ISIS insurgency as part of covert regime change operations aimed at Damascus and its allies Iran and Hezbollah. Since then, countries like Qatar have come forward to reveal just how vast their covert role in fueling the Syrian war really was, which we covered in our story, In Shocking, Viral Interview, Qatar Confesses Secrets Behind Syrian War
The Sunday Times relates a key confession that comes out of Lt.-Gen Gadi Eisenkot’s explosive interview as follows:
Eisenkot acknowledged for the first time, however, that Israel had supplied rebel groups in the border area with light weapons “for self-defence”.
Israel was a hidden player on a crowded Syrian battlefield.
Eisenkot positively boasted in the interview that “We operated in an area controlled by the Russians, sometimes attacking targets a kilometre or two from Russian positions,” in order to strike at Iranian assets in Syria.
The rare “confession” of sorts comes at a moment the White House says it’s moving forward on President Trump’s previously announced US troop pullout from Syria, something which has rattled Israel’s leadership, which has argued that Iran will become entrenched near Israel’s border as a result. Eisenkot’s words appear a warning to Iran that Tel Aviv aims to maintain operational capability inside Syria.
On this point the IDF chief admitted to “thousands” of attacks inside Syria:
“We carried out thousands of attacks [in recent years] without taking responsibility and without asking for credit,” he told the Sunday Times.
Given that prior military officials have typically put this number at “hundreds”, often from 200 to 400, this is an astounding admission that confirms Israel and Syria have been in a de facto state of open war since the first acknowledged Israeli airstrikes began in 2013.
Commenting on a prior report, The Times of Israel, summarized the timeline of Israel’s support to the anti-Assad insurgency as follows:
Foreign Policy said that Israel’s support for the rebel groups began in 2013, funding groups in places such as Quneitra and Daraa. It ended this summer as the regime’s forces advanced and made increasing gains in southern Syria against rebels. Syrian President Bashar Assad’s troops regained control of the border area in July.
The Syrian army said in 2013 that it had seized Israeli weapons in rebel hands.
The report said Israel sent the rebel groups weapons that included assault rifles, machine guns, mortar launchers, and vehicles. It initially sent the rebels US-made M16 rifles that would not identify Jerusalem as the source, and later began supplying guns and ammo from an Iranian shipment to Lebanon’s Hezbollah group that Israel captured in 2009, according to Foreign Policy.
But a number of analysts have suggested Israeli support to the opposition began even closer to the start of the conflict.
A prior Wall Street Journal investigation found that this relationship involved weapons transfers, salary payments to anti-Assad fighters, and treatment of wounded jihadists in Israeli hospitals, the latter which was widely promoted in photo ops picturing Netanyahu himself greeting militants. As even former Acting Director of the CIA Michael Morell once directly told the Israeli public, Israel’s “dangerous game” in Syria consists in getting in bed with al-Qaeda in order to fight Shia Iran.
Israel's Top Commander Finally Spills Secrets Of "Invisible War" In Syria
Prior widely shared photo of Israeli soldiers speaking face to face with al-Qaeda fighters near the Israeli occupied Golan heights in Syria.
In recent years, multiple current and former Israeli defense officials have gone so far as to say that ISIS is ultimately preferable to Iran and Assad. For example, former Israeli Ambassador to the US Michael Oren in 2014 surprised the audience at Colorado’s Aspen Ideas Festival when he said in comments related to ISIS that, “the lesser evil is the Sunnis over the Shias.” Oren, while articulating Israeli defense policy, fully acknowledged he thought ISIS was “the lesser evil.”
Likewise, for Netanyahu and other Israeli officials the chief concern was never the black clad death cult which filmed itself beheading Americans and burning people alive, but the possibility of, in the words of Henry Kissinger, “a Shia and pro-Iran territorial belt reaching from Tehran to Beirut” and establishment of “an Iranian radical empire.”
What is clear, and now finally settled for the historical record, is that for years Israeli concealed its “hidden hand” in the proxy war while feigning merely “humanitarian aid” — something now fully admitted by Israel’s top military commander. In other words the humanitarian smokescreen was cover for a full-on covert war on Damascus, as we and many other independent outlets have reported many times, and for years. Yet another past “conspiracy theory” becomes today’s incontrovertible fact.
I’m a little rusty on the recent history there. It may be that Iran didn’t show up until Israel started harassing Syria (probably done at the urging of obummer and Hitlery).
All in all. People need to stay out of other people business- unless innocent people are being harmed.
What a cluster this whole mess is. Our troops look like idiots. They probably had no instructions on what to do in this situation.
In interview with UK’s Sunday Times, outgoing army commander Gadi Eisenkot says Israel gave opposition groups light arms ‘for self-defense’
Fighters near Golan Heights in Syria receive cash and humanitarian help
Media reports hammer home the notion that Israel’s borders are under new threat from fighting from ISIS and al-Qaida, but rarely explain how Israel offers direct aid to al-Qaida.
Former deputy director of the CIA Michael Morell tell the ‘Post’ that al-Qaida is more dangerous to the West than ISIS.
Pilgrims were actually escaping from other protestants, the Anglicans who were bheading Jesuits and other papists in England during and after the reign of Henry VIII, the Roving Eye who had six wives!
I am pretty sure you are not even American.
I stopped reading at that point because you clearly no nothing .
We ,the British had the largest empire this world has ever and almost certainly will ever see.
We brought power , transport, clean ,a system of government that prevails to this day .
From the TV to the jet engine and everything in-between , we invented it .
And we did all the BECAUSE we aren't under the pope .
calling Jesus, Yeshua. Yikes.
You are an IGNORANT!!!
You are a Baal( Lord) Worshiper. That's what you are saying each time you say :Lord= Baal.
And when you say Jesus, what you are actually saying or calling is the Pagan Greek goddess of healing!!!
When you say Christ, you are not saying "Meshia" what you are saying is "Good, Gracious, kind." Which comes from the word Chrestos instead of the Greek word "Messias, " and in doing so, openly denying He is the Meshia, the Anointed One!!! https://www.bibletools.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/Lexicon.show/ID/G5543/chrestos.htm
You are a Pagan Idolater and doing so you are violating the Fisrt and Second Commanment!!! Repent, or you will burn in Hell with Satan and all his Demons.
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee
should bow, of things in heaven, and things in
earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Repent of your blasphemy and evil ways, while
you have the chance, before you are cast into
the lake of fire to burn forever and forever. Amen
If you don't like what I say, then, don't use the Bible anymore. If you Hate Israel, them don't use the our Scriptures anymore.
Do you believe, because the Pope says, Israel is not the People of God anymore, it is so? Hahaha
That's why you will be condemned. Because you are not even real Christians. You are Popists following the words of Men and not the Words of God because if you were following the Words of God you would not be talking like that.
You can't resist the Truth. But the Truth is One whether you might like it or not.
You don't even know the New Testament where it is supposed to base your faith. Even those who read the New Testament come back to Israel. Because the New Testament was written by Jews for Jews and for all the Descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel to come back to Israel. And even if you were not in blood from Israel, doesn't Paul says that when you believe you are part of the Israel of God? But you still hate Israel, for the simple reason you are not of God, but Pagan Idolaters Worshiper s of Baal. That's why Rome is called Babylon in the Book of Revelation!!! And for that Reason the God of Israel is still calling His People saying: "Come out of her my People!!! For not to take part of her sins!!!
Keep trolling, hating, and attacking us, twisting the Word of God to accommodate it your doctrines of Men!!! That will not change anything. The Truth will continue be One!!!
Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition:
25 For I would not have you ignorant, brethren, of this mystery, (lest you should be wise in your own conceits), that blindness in part has happened in Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles should come in.
26 And so all Israel should be saved, as it is written: There shall come out of Sion, he that shall deliver, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.
From the Magisterium of the RC Church:
St. Paul also reveals that the Jewish people will be converted (11:25-26). When this will happen is a mystery of faith and of hope, for God keeps his promises, and his rejection of Israel was neither absolute nor permanent. But we do know that first the Gospel must be preached to the whole world, “until the full number of the Gentiles come in [to the Church] and so all Israel will be saved.”
The USA has never had a mandate to be in Syria, but the UN has ignored that and instead indited Syria for gassing it's people, which was a false accusation by Western Powers.
How impartial is the UN, and how effective at bringing miscreants to justice.
