HEADLINE: IDF strikes Gaza targets overnight in response to rocket fire
The Israel air force struck two Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in the early hours of Thursday morning in retaliation for a rocket that landed in the Negev on Wednesday night, the army confirmed on Thursday.
There was no damage or injuries from the rocket launched from the Gaza Strip and no siren sounded as the rocket landed in open territory in the Negev, the IDF spokespersons Unit said.
While there have been around 20 rockets launched in 2016 towards Israel from the Gaza Strip, five rockets have been launched at Israel during the past month alone, including two that the Islamic State Group in Sinai claimed responsibility for.
HEADLINE: Syria threatens response to 'Zionist aggresion'
The Syrian army announced that four Israeli aircraft had entered Syrian airspace overnight and struck a military target near the ancient city of Palmyra.
Syria claimed that it shot down one of the four planes. "Four Israeli planes penetrated our air space at 2:40 AM via Lebanese territory and hit a military target on the way to Palmyra," the army said in a statement carried by state news agency SANA.
"Our air defense engaged them and shot down one warplane over occupied territory, hit another one and forced the rest to flee," the statement added.
The IDF confirmed that its aircraft were fired upon over Syria Thursday night. However, the IDF stated that the Arrow-3 missile defense system protected the planes from damage.
The IDF statement said that "several anti-aircraft missiles were launched from Syria during the operation. One of the missiles was intercepted by the air defense systems of the IDF.
An explosion from a Syrian anti-aircraft missile was heard in the city of Modiin south of Tel Aviv in central Israel. Two of the missiles reportedly landed in Israel, while a third reportedly landed in Jordan.
Syria threatened to respond harshly to the air strike. "This flagrant attack is part of the Zionist enemy's persistent efforts to support the terrorist gangs of ISIS," the Syrian army said.
"It will be responded to directly with all possible means," it added.
HEADLINE: AJC urges Congress to back letter to Trump calling for two-states
The American Jewish Committee is rallying support for a congressional letter to President Donald Trump urging him to reaffirm support for a two-state solution, the latest signal that the American Jewish establishment is committed to preserving the policy.
On Wednesday, the AJC sent a letter to members of the US House of Representatives asking them to sign on and support the letter authored by Reps. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., and David Price, D-N.C., and other measures that preserve peacemaking options even though current conditions do not provide grounds for optimism. Meanwhile, Senior Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar recently declared that "removing the Jews from the land they occupied in 1948 is an immutable principle" in the Koran.
Speaking to Hamass Al-Aqsa TV on March 8, Al-Zahar also made clear, "Our position is: Palestine in its entirety, and not a grain of soil less."

HEADLINE: Head of UN's ESCWA resigns over report on "apartheid" Israel
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has asked the UN regional commission that represents most Arab countries to remove a report from its website accusing Israel of practicing an "apartheid regime" against Palestinians, a UN official said on Friday.
The report for the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, which comprises 18 Arab states, concluded that "Israel has established an apartheid regime that dominates the Palestinian people as a whole."
The accusationoften directed against Israel by its criticshas never before been made by a United Nations body.
Rima Khalaf, UN Under-Secretary General and ESCWA Executive Secretary, resigned Friday, after what she described as pressure from the secretary general to withdraw the report. Khalaf announced her resignation at a news conference in Beirut.
In her remarks, Khalaf said, "It was expected that Israel and its allies would put enormous pressure on the United Nations secretary general to renounce the report."
Despite pressure, Khalaf stands by the report, calling it the "first of its kind" from a UN agency that sheds light on "the crimes that Israel continues to commit against the Palestinian people, which amount to war crimes against humanity."
HEADLINE: PA furious over terrorist designation
Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday slammed Defense Minister Avigdor Libermans decision to designate the Palestinian National Fund (PNF) as a terrorist organization.
A statement issued by Abbass bureau said that the PNF is one of the institutions of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), which operates according to international agreements and standards.
"At a time when the U.S. administration is working through talks with all parties and when President Trump's envoy is in the region to prepare an atmosphere conducive to peacemaking, this announcement is an attempt by Israel to put obstacles and thwart American efforts," the statement said.
"We strongly oppose this decision and demand that the Israeli government immediately deal with it and cancel it, as this will lead to the collapse of the foundations of the Oslo Agreement and the legal relationship with Israel," it warned.
HEADLINE: Jordan Refuses Unusual US Demand to Extradite Palestinian Terrorist
The Jordanian government has refused an anomalous U.S. request to extradite a Palestinian terrorist.
The Department of Justices extradition request for Ahlam Tamimi, who was behind a 2001 terror attack in Jerusalem that resulted in Israeli and American deaths, breaks with past U.S. policy on such terror-related cases. Prior to the Trump administration, legal cases against such terrorists constituted either criminal proceedings in Israeli courts or civil proceedings brought by family members in U.S. courts.
The request calls on Jordan to hand over Tamimi, a female Hamas terrorist who had previously been jailed by Israel for her connection to the Sbarro pizza restaurant terror attack in Jerusalem in August 2001, but was released by Israel as part of the controversial 2011 Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange. The 2001 bombing attack killed 15 people, including seven children and a pregnant woman, and wounded 130.
In its refusal of Americas request, Jordans government cited a domestic court ruling that forbids the extradition of Jordanian nationals under the Hashemite Kingdoms constitution.

But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately. (Luke 21:9-10) commotions; the Greek word here is Akatastasia, meaning instability, a state of disorder, disturbance, confusion, revolutions; For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places (Matthew 24:6-7) the Greek word for nation is Ethnos & refers to various ethnic groups fighting among themselves, where the next sentence in the verse refers to kingdoms (basileiva) fighting one another (not to be confused with an actual kingdom but rather the right or authority to rule over a kingdom) Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword. (Revelation 6:4) So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth (Revelation 6:8)
HEADLINE: Hezbollah is preparing Syria as second battlefield against Israel
Hezbollah intends to wage its next war against Israel from deep within Syria, according to a report on a pro-Hezbollah news site last week.
The report, found on the web site Ya Sour, quoted Hezbollah sources saying the group intends to fire long-range projectiles at the Jewish state from the Qalamoun and Anti-Lebanon Mountain ranges, areas firmly under the Shiite groups control on both the Syrian and Lebanese sides of the border.
There is reason to suspect that Hezbollah has indeed built up a missile arsenal in those areas, particularly as the city of Baalbek, the heartland of its Beqaa Valley stronghold, lies nearby. Israeli airstrikes against the group in Syria have been concentrated in Qalamoun. Moreover, a spokesman for the oppositions Syrian National Salvation Front, named Fahd al-Masri, said in Dec. 2016 that Hezbollah was nearing completion of a tunnel in the Zabadani valley linking these two areas. Hezbollah seeks to facilitate the transfer of weapons and reinforce its presence in the strategically important areas in the western Damascus countryside, which includes Qalamoun, according to al-Masri.
Earlier in 2016, satellite images revealed a Hezbollah weapons warehouse slightly north of that area in Qusayr, where the group reportedly housed Katyusha rockets, mortars and howitzers. Reports also claimed Hezbollah was storing longer-range, Iranian-produced ballistic missiles there, including the Shahab-1, Shahab-2 and Fateh-110/M-600, which the organization could use to strike Israel.
HEADLINE: Russia warns against Yemen port attack
The Russian Foreign Ministry has warned that the Saudi-led coalitions plans to launch an assault on Yemens biggest port city, Al Hudaydah, will greatly impact the humanitarian situation in the war-torn country.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement published on the ministrys official website that the coalitions plans to attack Yemens biggest port of Hudaydah is causing serious concerns.
A naval blockade by a Saudi-led coalition carrying out air strikes against the yemeni forces is depriving the population of life-sustaining commodities and services.
Zakharova added that battles in this area would not only inevitably lead to a mass exodus of the [local] population but would also de facto cut the [Yemeni] capital of Sanaa from
food and humanitarian aid supplies.
HEADLINE: Twenty two people killed in mosque attack in Yemen's Marib
Twenty two people were killed in an attack on a mosque during Friday prayers inside a military base in Yemens Marib province, local officials said.

Most of Marib is under the control of forces loyal to President Abd Rabbu Mansour al-Hadi. Iran-allied Houthis are battling his internationally recognised government. Meanwhile, An apparent military strike targeted a boat carrying Somali refugees off the coast of war-battered Yemen, killing dozens of people along a dangerous migrant route that leads to Libya and smuggling ships heading to Europe, U.N. officials said Friday.
It was not immediately clear who carried out the attack late Thursday, which claimed at least 32 lives

HEADLINE: U.S. denies bombing Syrian mosque where dozens died- Aleppo
The U.S. military said it carried out an attack on a building where al-Qaida militants were meeting in Syria, not on a mosque next door where activists say 46 civilians were killed in a bombing.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the incident occurred in the town of al-Jinah in Aleppo's western countryside. Al-Jinah is located in one of the main rebel-held parts of Syria.
U.S. Central Command spokesman Col. John J. Thomas said the intended target was destroyed late Thursday but the mosque near the target was not struck.
"We did not target any mosques," Thomas said. "What we did target was destroyed. There is a mosque within 50 feet of that building that is still standing."
However, local activists and the SOHR said at least 46 people were killed -- adding the death toll could rise as some are in critical condition and others are missing. The SOHR said it does not know to what country the warplanes that bombed the mosque belong.

The Free Syrian Armys Ahmad Al-Abdo Brigades continued their offensive against the Islamic State (ISIS) forces in the eastern Qalamoun region of Damascus on Friday, seizing two more hilltops from the terrorist organization.
According to opposition activists, the Free Syrian Army, alongside Jaysh Al-Islam, seized the hilltops of Rajm Al-Sawaan and Rajm Al-Doshka along the eastern slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains.
This latest advance by the rebel forces comes just 24 hours after they launched their powerful assault to expel the Islamic State militants from this mountainous region.

Turkey's president continues to ratchet up tensions with the European Union, as he campaigns ahead of an April referendum to extend his presidential powers. The unprecedented rhetoric is raising concerns as to whether Turkish-EU relations can recover. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, having already accused EU members Germany and the Netherlands of being fascists and Nazis, has extended his war of words to the entire bloc.
Erdogan accused EU countries of persecuting Muslims like Jews were during World War II, and said that the spirit of fascism was running wild on the streets of Europe. In the meantime, his foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, warned that Europe will be the site of what he called holy wars that will ultimately destroy it.
Turkey's Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu has threatened to "blow the mind" of Europe by sending 15,000 refugees a month to EU territory, in an intensifying dispute with the bloc.

Afghanistans national security adviser met Friday with senior officials in Russia to discuss counterterrorism cooperation and efforts to promote peace as Taliban insurgents staged fresh deadly attacks in Afghanistan.
The high-level talks came amid growing concerns over Russias contacts and alleged military assistance to the Taliban to enable the group to fight and contain Islamic State influence in Afghanistan. The two militant groups have regularly clashed in areas where Afghan forces have limited control.
Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, however, in talks with national security adviser Haneef Atmar, assured him that Moscow is working only to promote stability in Afghanistan.
Our recent contacts with the armed opposition [Taliban] are aimed only at encouraging the group to join the Afghan government-led peace process, Atmars spokesman, Tawab Ghorzang, quoted the Patrushev as telling the Afghan delegation in Friday's meeting.
HEADLINE: South Sudan government to blame for famine, still buying arms -U.N. report
South Sudan's government is mainly to blame for famine in parts of the war-torn country, yet President Salva Kiir is still boosting his forces using millions of dollars from oil sales, according to a confidential United Nations report.
U.N. sanctions monitors said 97 percent of South Sudan's known revenue comes from oil sales, a significant portion of which is now forward oil sales, and that at least half of the budget - "likely substantially more" - is devoted to security.
"Revenue from forward oil sales totaled approximately $243 million between late March and late October 2016," the panel of U.N. monitors said in the report to the U.N. Security Council, seen by Reuters on Thursday.
"Despite the scale and scope of the political, humanitarian, and economic crises, the panel continues to uncover evidence of the ongoing procurement of weapons by the ... Government for the SPLA (South Sudanese army), the National Security Service, and other associated forces and militias," the report said.
HEADLINE: Thousands stage anti-militia protests in Libya's capital
Thousands of Libyans have staged mass demonstrations in a rare show of defiance against powerful militias encroaching into Libya's capital, Tripoli, after days of clashes that have effectively chopped the city into warring fiefdoms. This week, four days of intense fighting saw pro-unity government armed forces expand their control in the capital Tripoli, where dozens of militias operate.
Further east, troops commanded by military strongman Khalifa Haftar said on Tuesday they had recaptured two important oil installations seized by a rival Islamist-led force in early March.
Pickup trucks mounted with anti-aircraft weapons attacked the Friday protests, forcing many to flee, according to TV network Libya Channel.
Protesters chanted slogans against the militias and called for a unified army and police. Some voiced support for the eastern-based army commander Khalifa Hifter, who is opposed by his Tripoli-based rivals which include the U.N.-brokered government and militias in the capital.
"We won't go home until our demands are met," said 27-year-old protester Mohamed Zein. "We ask for all militias that have come from outside of Tripoli to leave immediately."

Thousands once again took to the streets in Brazil to protest on Wednesday, this time against the governments proposed pension reform. In some cities, public transportation came to a halt, leaving millions with no way to go to work. Former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva participated in the protest, speaking against the Social Security reform at the end of the rally. According to Lula the current administration wants to end the gains of the working class through labor and welfare reforms. In Rio de Janeiro, protesters concentrated around the Igreja da Candelaria in the late afternoon and marched on to Central do Brasil, Rios main train station. Although most of the protest was calm, a group of demonstrators clashed with police in Cinelandia, and military police ended up throwing tear gas demonstrators and clients at the Amarelinho bar one of the most traditional and old in the city.

Demonstrators broke down doors, damaged equipment and scribbled on walls. According to the organizers, 1,500 people participated in the occupation.
HEADLINE: Two Pakistani troops killed in cross-border fire
At least two Pakistani security personnel were killed in cross-border fire from Afghanistan Friday, the military said, when gunmen attacked a checkpoint near the frontier in the troubled northwest.
The attack in Khyber tribal district was claimed by Jamaat-ul-Ahrar (JuA), a faction of the umbrella Pakistani Taliban, and came at a time of heightened tensions between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Terrorists from across the Pak-Bdr attempted physical attack on Pak FC (Frontier Constabulary) Post in Khyber Agency, said a military statement, adding that six militants were also killed in the exchange of fire.

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is (Revelation 17:3-8) And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast (Revelation 17:12-13) And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth (Revelation 17:9). And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth (Revelation 17:18)

The perception of resurrection
Of THE WOUNDED HEAD
The perception of resurrection of THE WOUNDED HEAD - Revelation 17:11.
American values, once respected and envied by many around the world, are now HATED by a degenerate humanity, who is looking for an iniquitous WORLD EMPEROR who governs by Gentile laws.
America, with its current President, Donald J. Trump, presently STANDS IN THE WAY of this prophetic end-time fulfillment of this FINAL world empire and its emperor anti-Christ!
Though Trump is engaged in a valiant attempt to disengage lawless decadence, his battle is against those who are empowered by satan and who embrace the epitomes of principalities, powers and rulers of the darkness of this world that are controlled by spiritual wickedness in high places and will ONLY relinquish its death-grip from the necks of humanity by its (his) conquest upon the triumphant Return of Yeshua! Ephesians 6:12. / II Corinthians 4:4.
As Trump continues to battle against the decades of depraved human practices that now dominate American culture, a once great nation has been transformed into a Whore of prophetic consequence and to the glee of wicked men, whose vile behavior mirror the very days of Noah and Lot, the antitheses of Christ and the Divine principles of His Word. President, Trumps sincere efforts to restore some Judeo/Christian values to this nation, will be unsuccessful as prophesied in the book of Revelation. "Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done".
The infra-structure of Washington DC, constructed by the Free Masons, was an act of dedication to the ancient gods, who ruled prior world empires.
These "engineers of darkness" were involved in the process of creating the incubator of the FINAL world emperor, "anti-Christ" and his soon coming EIGHTH empire! Revelation 17 & 18. Historical records detail these efforts of the so-called forefathers and founders of America, describing the establishment of such a place on earth where anarchy against the Almighty could be realized.
The finger prints of secret societies, and principalities of darkness did indeed lay siege to the foundation of America, clearly illustrated in the "dark foot-print" of the architectural design of its Capital, Washington DC, hidden in plain-site and complete with ancient pagan Icons.
HOWEVER, Divine intervention superseded this ploy of satanic origin as the FIRST American intercessions, the Pilgrims, restrained the plans of the "evil one" and laid the superior spiritual Judeo/Christian foundation of this Nation, with purpose to promote the "voice of the Bride and Bridegroom throughout the earth.
This "great commission" was carried out for centuries until America eventually succumbed to the god of this world, captivated by the "lust for the things of this world" and willing participation in human decadent behavior. It IS the Christian Pilgrim whose prayers of dedication to Christ concerning this new land, RESTRAINED this final world empire from fruition UNTIL NOW!!! Revelation 18:22-24 / Revelation 19:6-9.
Such is the destiny and imminent future this entire world, until Yeshua restores His Kingdom on earth! Thy Kingdom Come
Thy Will be Done
on earth as it IS in Heaven!
Certainly Believers, the (True Church), is empowered by the Holy Spirit and able to bind, arrest, restrict, inhibit, prohibit certain principalities of wickedness from operating in their midst. Luke 10:19. It IS however, the god of this world has been able to achieve dominance over the majority of the global population of some 7+ Billion souls. "As it was in the days of Noah and Lot, SO SHALL IT BE". Matthew 24:37 / Luke 17: 26-28.
America, is the ONLY political power to have unequivocally influenced, in any significant way, the political & religious human conduct around the world since the days of the Empire of Rome. Even in modernity, the so-called Imperial Japanese and British empires NEVER achieved the global eminence and sphere of influence of that of the United States of American. This fact is INDISPUTABLE!
Before the United States existed, reaching back into history from the time of the end of the Roman Empire, to the establishment of the United States of America, the nations of the world were disengaged, fractured with convoluted warring factions striving unsuccessfully to recapture and resurrect control of their perceived empires, as they faced insurmountable technical challenges of ever-expanding humanity and were never able to put (Humpty Dumpty), another world empire together again UNTIL a nation was born, that would overcome the barriers to the prophetic fulfillment of the seventh empire, BECAUSE this undoubtedly is the Will of God!
America, the SEVENTH world empire in succession of SIX, IS the ONLY Gentile empire in modernity to have significantly influenced world affairs for the past two plus centuries. This seventh empire will now be rendered insignificant by the enemies Jehovah because of her wickedness.
I saw a beast coming out of the sea, (of humanity). It had ten horns, (kings) and seven HEADS, (empires) with ten crowns on its horns
One of the (SEVEN) HEADS of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed:
This calls for a mind that has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman (Mystery Babylon) sits. There are also seven kings. Five are fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while.
The ONE that WAS, at the time of the writing of this prophecy IS the SIXTH (6th) HEAD, documented as ROME.
The ONE to COME, as prophesied then IS the SEVENTH, (7th) HEAD, now understood to be the United States of America, (Mystery Babylon).
NOTICE, this SEVENTH HEAD (empire), Mystery Babylon, will only influence humanity FOR A LITTLE WHILE!
Of ALL world empires recorded throughout history, ONLY the United States has the distinguished honor of the shortest duration, yet MOST profound influential impact upon the ENTIRE world during these past 200+ years of its' existence. No other world empire has rose to global prominence as has America.
NOTE: The cumulative legacy of ALL SIX (6) prior world empires, RESTS UPON THE SEVENTH (7th) empire, Mystery Babylon. Revelation 17:9-10. THERE WILL BE ONLY ONE MORE, the EIGHTH and FINAL world empire of the BEAST of Revelation. THIS DAY HAS COME and NOTHING will prevent ITS' manifestation however Yeshua will CRUSH "IT" upon his Return!
The pinnacle of evil as experienced in days of Lot and Noah, MUST again come to pass, in order that the FINAL 8th world empire and its emperor can attempt to fulfill satans original abominable plan to usurp Authority over the Lord of Lords! Of course, this plan will initiate the absolute demise of satan, his son of perdition, the false prophet, Francis of Rome and ALL those who follow after them! Daniel 2:44.
As the SIXTH Empire of Roman eventually split into TWO directions, (east and west), these two (legs), of Nebuchadnezzars dream of the anatomy of a statue" as described in Daniel 2:44, representing world empires whose non-repent peoples, scattered throughout the earth in search of a NEW place to FINISH this unholy quest of world domination.
During the final days of Mystery Babylon, the Mother of Harlots, the son of perdition affixed his hatred on American Judeo/Christian values aggressively changing many times & laws, in his attempt to transform of a God-fearing people into that of whore and did so under American Constitutional restraints.
HUSSEIN, who by his lawlessness revealed himself as the son of perdition and who IS destined, like Judas, by his own evil intent, to fill the shoes of the anti-Christ. This man DID in fact rise to global political awareness WHILE he was bridled and straddled, (restrained), by the Harlot of Babylon.
Husseins demonic empowerment to change times and laws, insured that no one will successfully reverse his ensconced depraved efforts to defy the laws of Jehovah and establish his world of abomination.
His apparent demise, (fatal wound) BY THE SWORD, is a direct reference to his political and religious fortification of ISLAM during his eight-year aggressive support for Islamic Jihad that began with his enthusiastic support for the Arab Spring and the Islamic chaos that followed.
BECAUSE of Hussein's aggressive support of the pale green horse of Revelation, this "horse" of Seal # 4, was enabled to advance its' FINAL global conquest during the Arab Spring, Muslims now represent some 1.8+ Billion in number and make up approximately 1/4 of the earth's population.
The ISLAMIC SWORD of death, famine and terror, has advanced through lawless MIGRATION into the earth's populations of some 7+Billion precisely as prophesied! Revelation 6:7-9 / Revelation 13:14.
THE SWORD of ISLAM is poised to carry out the will of the son of perdition during his days of abomination. (Adherents of Islam constitute the world's second largest religious group. According to a study in 2015, Islam has 1.8 billion adherents, making up about 24% of the world population).
In a "SANE" world, this overt support for the violent Islamic enemies of Israel and Christianity should have insured his banishment from fulfilling future political ambitions however, this world has become so perverted that the son of perdition will be rewarded by sadistic global minds who will embrace him and his divisive methodology and will soon honor him as supreme emperor of this final global empire.
Hussein WILL use the SWORD of ISLAM as his preferred weapon to enforce political correctness which incorporates the institution of MARK of the BEAST). Revelation 12:13-14.
Hussein successfully slithered away into the darkness, only to soon be resurrected into the international arena and receive adulation as a world community organizer, an endeavor that IS orchestrated by the devils minions, yet IS destined to fail. Daniel 7:25 / Daniel 8:12.
His SOON resurrection to world leadership and his disdain for America and Israel, will provoke him to take vengeance against the United States and Israel, BOTH cities of unwalled villages. It is at this moment in history that he will be supported by a GROUP of TEN, ten crowns on its horns, and will succeed with his revenge against the Harlot of Babylon.
The Lord will however defend the Nation of Israel, who will suffer loss, yet will remain intact, though a Nation that is overshadowed by anti-Christ until Messiah Yeshua comes. Revelation 17:16 / Ezekiel 38-39.
In addition to the vengeful acts of the anti-Christ, there will also be a Divine shaking of the entire earth, Region #1 NOT excluded. The SIXTH SEAL of Revelation will make the Americas a third-world environment. Europe WILL become the CONTROL CENTER of the Empire of the Beast, Daniel 2:44.
The recorded "possession" by satan of the man Judas, did indeed complete the transition of the man into a son of perdition. the same can be said regarding the "man" who will become the anti-Christ. Luke 22:3.
As Judas "destiny" was by choice the, "seed" of betrayal existed within him by nature, thus he was "destined" to become the son of perdition and could not have fulfill the level of betrayal without the complete surrender of his "heart" to satan. I do not believe in "pre-destination" for one reason, the individual human choice and free will.
My use of the term "son of perdition" in defining Barrack Hussein Obama, is attributed to the overt "lawless" nature of Hussein. The term "son of perdition" is used synonymously with the term "man of lawlessness", thus, Obama lawless nature betrays his destined kinship to satan, an actual "son" of perdition.
The term "anti-Christ" is the absolute manifestation of the intended "purpose" of this son of perdition, that is, to overcome and defeat Yeshua as in, anti-God, anti-Jew, anti-Messiah, anti-Christ, the fulfillment and embodiment of complete evil. The inherent "lawless" nature of this final dictator is by choice, and opens his wretched heart to complete the possession by satan, as was the case with the only other identified "son of perdition". This too will happen.
In fact, this act of possession will solidify the relationship between the "son of perdition" and ITS' father, the devil.
Welcome to the New World Order, the EIGHTH and FINAL WORLD EMPIRE of the BEAST of REVELATION.
I saw a beast coming out of the sea, (of humanity). It had ten horns, (kings) and seven HEADS, (empires) with ten crowns on its horns
One of the (SEVEN) HEADS of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed:
7 Mystery Babylon, (USA), (who else could fulfill this prophetic Mystery of the Harlot of Babylon) Revelation Chapter 17 & 18.
And from One of the SEVEN, an 8th FINAL WORLD EMPIRE of the Gentiles is "born". This IS the BEAST of Revelation, a New Word Oder.
Notice that only ONE of the SEVEN HEADS (empires) of the beast SEEMED, or literally, LOOKED AS IF to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.
NOTE: this PERCEIVED FATAL WOUND is NOT describing a physical wound to the body of some world leader, but rather the perceived permanent demise of any hope to resurrect a world empire to fulfill the will of satan.
This calls for a mind that has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, (EMPIRES), on which the woman, (Mystery Babylon) sits. There are also seven kings, (EMPERORS). Five are fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while.
And the beast that was, and is NOT, (REPRESENTING ALL SEVEN WORLD EMPIRES), even HE IS the EIGHTH, and IS OF THE SEVEN, and goeth into perdition. Revelation 17:9-10.
The context of this fatal wound is applicable to a head, a term which is used in this case, to describe a gentile world empire(s) that have ruled over mankind since the beginning. Though various leaders have ruled these HEADS, (empires) through millennia, it is and has always been the defiled objective of these spiritually debased empires to dominate the human soul with contempt against Jehovah. The efforts of each of these emperors shared this wicked ambition and toiled to rule these seven empires.
Since multiple leaders lorded over each of these heads, (empires), it is crucial to understand that this perceived fatal wound of ONE of these seven empires is an actually the depiction of the demise and subsequent resurrection of BOTH the empire and ONE of its emperors, (leaders), who is RESURRECTED as if from fatality to lead the eighth and final world empire.
The BEAST who once WAS, and now is NOT, IS an EIGHTH king. He BELONGS to the SEVEN and is going to his destruction. It IS one of these emperors, (leaders) of the Seven Empires of the Gentiles who will be resurrected as the last world Emperor!
The anti-Christ comes FROM one of the seven and becomes the EIGHTH leader of an EIGHTH empire of global prominence. The HEAD indeed incorporates BOTH the man and the empire!
NOTE: Verse 11. - And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition; and the beast (neuter, ??????) that was and is not, he himself is also an eighth (masculine), and is of (??, out of) the seven, etc. We may note; that "eighth" refers to "king" in ver. 10, being masculine gender;
The words, was and is not literal defined as; 5217 hupago (hoop-ag'-o); from 5259 and 71; to lead (oneself) under, I.e. the word means to withdraw or retire (as if sinking out of sight), literally or figuratively: KJV-- depart, get hence, go (a-) way. Revelation 17:11. THIS IS THAT!
The BEAST who once WAS, and now is NOT, IS an EIGHTH king. He BELONGS to the SEVEN and is going to his destruction.
IN THE END
only ONE individual MUST and WILL CONCLUDE the long succession of world emperors. This IS final BEAST and it WILL fulfill the prophecy of the anti-Christ BEFORE the Return of Yeshua.
This LAST emperor will indeed embody apollonian, a literal possession, of the son of perdition, who IS anti-Christ of this eight-and final Gentile empire.
Apollonia by any other name is Apollo. Judas, the only other human to be identified in scripture as the son of perdition, was also possessed by satan at the moment of his betrayal of Yeshua.
They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer). Revelation 9:11. / Luke 22:3 / John 17:12.
NOW COMES, the RESURRECTED world emperor, whose BEGINNING was incubated in the womb of the Harlot Babylon and whose global ambition includes a terrible vengeance against her for resisting him.
He is embraced by Francis of Rome and all those who follow after them and will go into desolation. Revelation 17:11-16.
IT IS AT THE TIME OF THIS EIGHTH EMPEROR, and his EIGHTH WORLD EMPIRE, WILL APPEAR AND MAKE THE WORLD DESOLATE! THIS IS THAT!!!
Now these SEVEN HEADS are WORLD EMPIRES and are NOT to be confused with the TEN KINGS of Revelation 17:6, who align themselves with this final world emperor, who is anti-Christ!
These ten kings are 10 global leaders, who will work together with the little horn, Daniel 7:8, an (anti-Christ) who will fulfill the abomination of desolation This immoral and lawless legacy of ALL SEVEN WORLD EMPIRES will be absorbed and brought back to life in the EIGHTH and FINAL world empire of biblical definition, the BEAST!
IT IS IN THE DAYS OF THESE 10 KINGS and this EIGHTH empire, that Christ Himself will CRUSH the empire of the Gentiles and ITS political leader, his false prophet Francis of Rome ALL who follow after them! Daniel 2:44.
THERE IS A DIRECT MALEVOLENT CONNECTION BETWEEN THESE FINAL TEN LEADERS AND THE FINAL EIGHTH GENTILE WORLD EMPIRE!
The TEN Regions prescribed by the Club of Rome, will indeed require TEN, (10 leaders), that may represent these TEN kings. Not by coincidence, Region # 1, is comprised of (Canada / USA, Mexico).
So, the anti-Christ is indeed identified by BOTH of his prophetic roles as a former leader of ONE of the SEVEN, world empires, and is ALSO is directly connected to TEN FINAL WORLD LEADERS, (KINGS) who will act wickedly with him, upon his impudent ascension to be perched by satan upon the throne of Hell as the FINAL world emperor of the Gentiles.
NOW the TIME HAS COME when the FINAL sickle will be thrust upon the earth and through the harvested fields of souls in one last gleaning effort and then the end comes.
UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD and that this present world is in the hands of satan in order that our RIGHTEOUS KING WILL RETURN TO JUDGE MANKIND and COVER THE EARTH WITH HIS KINGDOM!
During these most difficult times of persecution, the promise of PSALM 91 will protect you and your loved ones as you maintain prayer and worship! Remember, the Apostles new Him, served Him, had exceedingly great faith in Him, His Words and His promises and KEPT their eye on the PRIZE which is Him and His Kingdom. Most were put to death for their faith!!
Today, the likes of the COPELANDS, OSTEENS, WARRENS, WHITES and the rest of the heretically religious wolves would indeed render the fate of the Apostles as a failure to excel in this present world. The fact is scripture has made it absolutely clear that His children, are NOT of this WORLD. "And if the world hate me, it will hate you also, Jesus. John 15:18.
I am emphatically warning you that the PRIZE, has (NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING OF THIS PRESENT WORLD)!!! GOD HELP US!
NOTHING is to be desired above HIM!!! GET IT STRAIGHT YOU WOLVES WHO ARE LEADING MANY TO HELL!!! Publicly repent NOW and confess your carnal sin before men for Christs SAKE, that those who follow you will also repent and save their souls. Maranatha!
THE APPARENT FATAL WOUND by the SWORD THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CONSERVATIVE AMERICAN DESPISING OBAMA AND HIS CALIPHATE WILL PROVE TO BE THE RALLY FOR HIS RESURRECTION TO GLOBAL PROMINENCE AND WORLD LEADERSHIP IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE! - MARK THESE WORDS
they are not my own! - BOZUNG
Apollo (Attic, Ionic, and Homeric Greek: , Apollon (GEN ; Doric: , Apellon; Arcadocypriot: , Apeilon; Aeolic: , Aploun; Latin: Apollo) is one of the most important and complex of the Olympian deities in classical Greek and Roman religion and Greek and Roman mythology. The ideal of the kouros (a beardless, athletic youth), Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of music, truth and prophecy, healing, the sun and light, plague, poetry, and more. Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto, and has a twin sister, the chaste huntress Artemis. Apollo is known in Greek-influenced Etruscan mythology as Apulu.
