Isaiah 46:9-11 KJV – “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.”

What an awesome God we serve!

No other supposed deity has the knowledge to describe the pre-historic past authoritatively, the foresight to predict the future, the audacity to proclaim the future, and the power to ensure that what He declares will come to pass.

The Bible is unique in that it contains detailed descriptions of the beginning and the end of Creation. Skeptics and atheists are left sputtering their contempt in the face of God’s commanding declarations. They argue that the prophets of God recorded their prophecies long after what they foretold came to pass.

But the historical record is clear. The prophets of God lived and prophesied long before their prophecies were fulfilled. That fulfillment validated the prophets’ authenticity—and validates God’s omniscience and omnipotence.

In the Beginning

God’s first statement contains His own eyewitness account of His activity at the very outset of recorded history: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). Who can dispute His account from a position of authority? Who else was present to offer a different recollection of that event? Thus, cosmologists and theoretical scientists with their hypotheses cannot even provide a valid contradictory theory because there is no way to substantiate their ideas for how the cosmos came into being.

And the universe that God created was not merely reformulated out of existing stuff. He did not mold and form matter that He found pre-existent and unused. He made everything that exists ex nihilo—out of nothing. Indeed, all that we observe and know sprang from an idea in the unfathomable mind of God.

John tells us that even before He created, God existed in perfect harmony with Himself. Referring to Christ, John records, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being” (John 1:1-3).

Every created thing—be it a galaxy, a world, a mighty beast, a perfect snowflake or God’s highest creation, Man—exists because God made it so.

A Denial of Reality

Over time, Man’s relationship with God became skewed due to our sinful nature. As it has been said, we are not sinners because we sin; we sin because we are sinners. That propensity to wander away from God—initially spurred by the serpent in the garden of Eden—has been our downfall throughout human history.

Yet, just like Adam, we endeavor to deflect the responsibility for our sin to anybody or anything but ourselves. Or, following the faulty reasoning of fallen Man, humanity rationalizes that there is no God who created us—therefore, we are not beholden or accountable to anyone outside ourselves. David renounced such false thinking and the behavior it inevitably produces: “the fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds” (Psalm 14:1).

Always eager to discredit God and lead men and women into deception and destruction, Satan still whispers, “Did God really say?” and “You surely will not die!” (Genesis 3:1, 4). Today, the false gods of our age beckon us to reject the God who made us and become our own god. Doing so leads to certain destruction. But God had a better plan.

Before the Foundation of the World

John recorded that God has a Book of Life containing the names of everyone—past, present, and future—who trust in the Lamb who was slain before the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8). Peter also testifies that “He (Jesus Christ) was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but has appeared in these last times for the sake of [those who have believed]” (1 Peter 1:20).

God’s plan of salvation was not His “Plan B,” concocted to deal with a creation gone awry. He did not wring His hands and exclaim, “Well, this isn’t working out the way I’d hoped. I’d better come up with something to set it right, or at least save some.”

No, the good news of God’s provision for salvation was preordained before He even said, “Let there be light.” He knew that His Son would have to suffer and die for the sins of many before He said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness” (Genesis 1:26). He knew your name, your heart, and the number of hairs on your head before He set the first star in the sky.

Alpha and Omega

At Lamb & Lion Ministries, our focus is often on “last things.” Our mission is to proclaim the soon return of Jesus Christ. For the Bride of Christ—the Church—our homegoing will occur at the Rapture when our Bridegroom comes to take us back to His Father’s house.

For those who have rejected God’s free gift of salvation, the wrath of God will be poured out in the Tribulation. Following those seven years of unparalleled horror, Jesus Christ will descend from heaven in the same manner that He was caught up in the sight of the Apostles. He will set foot on the Mount of Olives and speak a supernatural word that will destroy the Antichrist and armies gathered near Megiddo. The Kidron Valley will split in two, and Jesus will enter the city of Jerusalem through the Golden (Eastern) gate, ascend to the Temple Mount, and take His seat on the throne of His father, David.

For 1000 years, Jesus will reign over the earth, flooding it with peace, righteousness, and holiness. Then, He will put down a final rebellion instigated by the Devil and cast death and Hades into a lake of fire. At that point, the redeemed will enter the eternal state, where time itself ceases to have meaning.

That plan too was foreordained by God, which is why He could reveal it to His servants, the prophets. Though not yet realized, that sequence of events is as certain as any historical fact—because our God has declared the beginning and the end. He is our Alpha and our Omega—our Creator and Sustainer–and the One who will welcome us into His eternal presence—or cast us into everlasting destruction.

Evening and Morning

The opening verses of Genesis describe the earth as formless and void, with darkness abiding over the surface of the deep. The only movement was the Spirit of God Himself (Genesis 1:2).

In the midst of that impenetrable darkness, God said, “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3). He pierced the darkness with the power of His spoken Word and showered the earth with light that He declared to be good. From that point forward, darkness was separated from light. Mankind would experience a daily reminder of the contrast between those two extremes. Every day—beginning with the first seven recorded in the opening pages of Genesis—consists of evening and morning. That is why Jewish days begin at sundown and end when the brightness of day recedes once again.

Throughout the Creation account, each day’s work with its component stages was declared to be good. Only when the whole was completed in perfect harmony did God gaze over all He had created and declare it to be “very good” (Genesis 1:31).

Initially, Man’s interaction with God was also very good. Adam had no stain of sin and no reason to be ashamed or fearful of God. However, the Fall brought Man from that glorious height into the cursed depths. He was even banished from Eden, condemned to hardship and toil. The Creation itself became discordant, with thorns and thistles and poisonous plants and animals emerging. Wandering ever farther from God, men and women “became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened” (Romans 1:21).

The Hebrew word for evening is erev. The word originally conveyed obscurity and chaos, but over time has come to mean darkness or evening. So evening represents a rise in disorder and understanding. Likewise, in a very real sense, Mankind’s dark age began the moment Adam and Eve first sinned against God.

In Jewish understanding, the fall of night symbolizes Man’s departure from God’s goodness. That motif of darkness and light carried through the Old Testament and into the New. Thanks be to God, His eternal plan was to pierce the darkness. Citing Isaiah 9:2, Matthew recounted how “the people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light, and those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, upon them a Light dawned” (Matthew 4:16). That Light was Jesus Christ.

John testified about Jesus, “In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” (John 1:4-5). Later, John reiterated that the message he heard from God and shared with us is that “God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5).

Beginning and End

Just as each day has a beginning and an end (whether according to Jewish or western reckoning), Creation also had a beginning and will come to an end. Likewise, human history also has a beginning and an end.

Those of us who are plodding along the timeline of history are confined to a very two-dimensional awareness. We can reflect on the past—although our own awareness fades the further back we go; even human records only carry us so far back. We are capable of anticipating the future but, left to our own devices, cannot gaze ahead at all.

Referring to mankind, the writer of Ecclesiastes observed that God “has also put eternity in their hearts, but no one can discover the work God has done from beginning to end” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).Thus, in this life, we are constrained to a linear experience of time and confined to a never-ending “present.”

But God is not confined to time as we know it. Instead, like a pilot flying high above an interstate who can see obstacles and traffic jams many miles ahead, God’s omniscience allows Him to see the beginning and the end with equal clarity. And He has chosen to reveal what we need to know about each—testifying to His creative acts in Genesis and the flow of end-time events in Jesus’ Revelation.

Jesus – the First and the Last

God is the Central Figure both in the beginning and at the end. Jesus Christ is the Creator who fulfilled the will of the Father. He will also come again to fulfill all the Father has revealed and promised.

Jesus—the eternal Son of God—was there at the beginning. He is there in every book of the Bible, either in pre-incarnate manifestation, foreshadowed type, or as the gracious and silent Author driving the narrative of history. And history itself is His story.


The two books of the Bible most frequently dismissed as fanciful and non-literal are Genesis and Revelation. But they act as bookends to all of God’s revealed Word—describing His acts of Creation, Man’s Fall, God’s foreshadowing of a Messiah to restore relationship, and the final culmination of human history when God closes the loop on righteousness, justice, mercy, and holiness.

Between those two bookends, the Bible conveys all the revelation God deemed appropriate to share with mankind. Skeptics complain that the span of God’s revelation in Scripture is just too hard to understand. But, as Henry Morris once said regarding Revelation, “It is not hard to understand; if you will believe what the Lord has proclaimed, you will understand.”

With God’s metanarrative available to all who would simply read the Book and believe, why is there such a shortage of understanding today? The reasons are legion—and yes, that is an intentional side-reference to the band of demons that possessed the hapless man that Jesus encountered on the eastern shore of Galilee.

Some are so enamored with their reason and lean so heavily on their own understanding that they reject the revelation of God. Others allow the insidious doubts sown by Satan to sprout into weeds and thorns that choke off the truth. As in the garden, our enemy’s favorite tactic is to ask, “Did God really say…” and then proceed to discount and contradict the Creator outright.

So, what can we do? First and foremost, we must dedicate ourselves to reading, studying, and heeding the whole Word of God. Revelation twice promises a blessing to “all who read and heed“ that final book of prophecy. That principle applies to all of God’s Word. The Holy Spirit will increase our knowledge and understanding as we read the entire Bible. Heeding first involves believing God and literally taking Him at His word.

Genesis (and Paul) testified that Abram believed God, and He credited it to him as righteousness. Therefore, if we desire to receive a blessing from God, we must not only believe IN Him, we must also believe Him.

The Image of the Invisible God

Jesus—the Word who was there at the beginning, the One by whom all things were created, the Son whose finished work on the cross justifies us before the Father—has promised to come again (John 1:1-3, Colossians 1:15-17, Romans 5:9, Revelation 22:7, 12, 20). When He does, we will look upon Him face-to-face. We’ll see His glory, and He will dwell among us forever.

Pray that the Holy Spirit will open your eyes to see Jesus on every page. Expect that He will reveal the prophecies that point to Himself—causing your heart to burn within you as the disciples on the road to Emmaus testified when Jesus revealed Himself in the scriptures.

The Bible really is all about Jesus. Experience Him anew as you dive between the bookends.

These Three Things Are Huge! | LIVE with Tom...

Following the selection of His original 12 disciples, and early in His earthly ministry, Jesus selected 70 men and sent them forth two by two from city to city to prepare the way for His ministry and a great harvest of souls (Luke 10:1-20).

He warned these men that they would encounter opposition, hardship, and danger.

He empowered them to work miracles (heal the sick, etc.) in cities where they were received and instructed them to tell people, “The Kingdom of God is nigh unto you.”

He told them a Day of Judgment is coming, and the judgment of God will fall on those that reject the kingdom message, because accepting or rejecting Jesus is the same as accepting or rejecting the God (Jehovah) that sent Jesus.

The seventy went forth and returned rejoicing that even the devils (demons) obeyed them in the name of Jesus.

Jesus revealed that the obedience of demons in the name of Jesus is a foretaste of Satan being kicked out of heaven (at the middle of the Tribulation Period: Rev. 12:7-12) and the ultimate victory and deliverance of those that trust Him.

He said unto the 70, “Rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”

Christians that are concerned about what may happen in the coming weeks and months (forced vaccinations, tracking everyone, transition to a digital currency, persecution, losing their stuff, etc.) should focus on spiritual things.

Instead of rejoicing over your earthly freedoms, successes, etc. (in reality, gifts from God), rejoice:

.Because of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus for the sins of those that believe and put their trust in Him.
.Because your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life in heaven.
.Because your sins have been forgiven, and you have been sealed by the Holy Spirit.
.Because you have eternal life, and nothing will be able to separate you from the love of God.
.Because you will not experience even one minute of the Tribulation Period.
.Because Satan’s power and influence on earth will soon end.
.Because God will avenge the harm that the lost inflict on His people.
.Because you will return to earth with Jesus at His Second Coming, and you will reign with Him during His Millennial Kingdom on earth.

Here are current events that seem to indicate that it is getting close.

One, concerning world government: things are happening that need to be constantly watched.

To review and set the stage for the latest:

First, there were two globalist meetings in Jan. 2023 (The WHO International Health Regulations Review Committee, IHRRC, and the WEF Annual Meeting) that submitted proposals (proposed International Health Regulations—called IHRs or global laws) to be voted on at the upcoming WHO Assembly Meeting on May 21-30, 2023. The IHRs are designed, if passed by a simple majority, to give the WHO Director-General medical and scientific sovereignty over every nation and person on earth.

Second, in mid-Feb. 2023, it was reported that the Biden administration was planning to sign a legally binding document with the WHO Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (INB) at an upcoming meeting (Feb. 27-Mar. 3, 2023) that would require the U.S. to obey WHO IHRs (global laws) without the approval of Congress or voters in the U.S.

Here is the latest information that I have (and I don’t pretend to know or rightly understand everything that is happening or that what I read is right):

First, I know that the INB meeting did occur (Feb. 27-Mar.3, 2023), but I do not know if Biden signed an agreement that would require the U.S. to obey the WHO IHRs (global laws). Another INB meeting has been scheduled for Apr. 17-20, 2023.

Second, on Feb. 28, 2023, Republicans in the Senate warned that they will oppose efforts by the Biden administration to require the U.S. to obey WHO IHR’s unless the U.S. Senate approves it.

Third, on Mar. 1, 2023, it was reported that if the WHO IHR’s are approved at the WHO Assembly Meeting, May 21-30, world leaders will be given a short period of time to put them into effect.

Fourth, on Mar. 3, 2023, it was reported that there are two sets of legislation pending in the House of Representatives to stop the U.S. from surrendering to this WHO power grab.

Here is a link to an excellent article on this issue.


For whatever it is worth, on Mar. 2, 2023, Bill Wilson, KIN Senior Analyst for Koenig’s Eye News wrote:

Revelation 13:7 says, “And it was given unto him [the Beast] to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” Other than military force, there is no greater power than a hold on people’s healthcare. This grip can extend to travel, food, housing, civil rights, and more if people do not comply with the mandates. We saw it firsthand with COVID where people were denied travel and access to restaurants. They were not even allowed to work if they were not vaccinated with an unproven, ineffective, and unsafe “vaccine” that is now causing thousands of deaths and health problems. Biden must be stopped in this unconstitutional abdication of sovereignty. WHO’s your daddy? God or man?

If this WHO power grab is not stopped, the world will soon enter the worst seven years ever (including the Flood, WWI, WWII, etc.).

People will have to choose whether they will follow God (our heavenly Father) or man, and their life will be on the line.

Two, concerning world government: on Mar. 4, 2023, former Pres. Trump delivered the keynote speech at the prestigious Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) meeting in Washington, DC.

Among other things, Trump said, if he is elected president:

He will obliterate the New World Order.
He will totally obliterate the Deep State.
He will fire the unelected bureaucrats and shadow forces who have weaponized our justice system like it has never been weaponized before.
He will put the people back in charge of America again.

(My opinion: Bible prophecy must be fulfilled. I will not say it is not possible for prayer and a different president in the White House to slow down the New World Order, but it cannot be stopped.)

(More: There is no telling what the unelected Deep State will do to keep Trump from winning. A pastor friend of mine who is very astute on Bible prophecy believes Trump’s opposition is a sign that he won’t be elected again because Bible prophecy must be fulfilled.)

(More: Trump warned that if Republicans don’t win in 2024, the U.S. is probably gone. As far as I am concerned, he was politicking, but aside from that, I believe he is right. The Deep State is determined to take America down and bring in the New World Order.)

(More: Former vice Pres. Al Gore is a member of the Board of Trustees.)

Three, concerning reprobate minds: in Canada, on Mar. 1, 2023, it was reported that most of the provinces of Canada have insurance that covers transition surgeries for the gender confused at taxpayer expense, but Canadian Prime Min. Trudeau wants to expand the coverage to include voice feminization and breast augmentation.

It is too early to tell if this will be approved, but some ask why is it necessary for taxpayers to pay for gays to change their voice or enlarge their breasts.

Four, concerning deceit and corruption in the U.S. government: on Mar. 2, 2023, The Gateway Pundit reported that a Rasmussen Poll found that more than 60% of likely voters believe the Jan. 6, 2021, riots were provoked by government agents.

Some Democrats in the House and Senate (Hakeem Jeffries and Chuck Schumer, to name two) are going ballistic over House Speaker McCarthy’s decision to release video of the riots to Tucker Carlson, but 80% of likely voters (including many Democrats) believe it is important for the public to see all the videos.

If truth and justice have prevailed by locking some citizens up with no hope of release, why are some Democrat leaders opposing the release of the videos?

Five, concerning deceit in the U.S. government and tracking everyone: on Feb. 28, 2023, in testimony before a House Select Subcommittee, Dr. Marty Makary, Professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, said, “The greatest perpetrator of misinformation during the (Covid) pandemic was the U.S. government.”

Makary cited a long list of government false statements, an authoritative study that refuted some of them, experts that refuted some of them, and the report noted that the release of Twitter Files verifies that the U.S. government deliberately tried to silence experts on many of the issues.

It is important to understand that the government that was perpetrating false information wants to keep records on every U.S. citizen and control their life.

Six, concerning the moral decline of America, Rachel Levine is Pres. Biden’s Assistant Sec. of Health.

Levine is the father of two boys, a biological man that divorced his wife, started wearing a bra and identifying as a woman.

Everyone knows that a man does not become a woman by growing long hair and cross-dressing, but someone with a reprobate mind might think he can.

Anyway, on June 6, 2023, a new children’s book will be released that is titled She Persisted: Rachel Levine.

The book will promote Levine as an inspirational figure that cross-dresses and rose against the odds.

It will be advertised as suitable for children that are 6-9 years old.

Seven, concerning the moral decline of America, on Mar. 2, 2023, Patrick Wojahn, the gay mayor of Maryland, Ind., was arrested on charges of possessing child pornography.

Wojahn once noted that Pete Buttigieg (former mayor of South Bend, Ind., and now Pres. Biden’s gay Sec. of Transportation) is his mentor.

Wojahn said he attended a meeting with Buttigieg at the White House during the Obama administration (some think Obama is gay).

Wojahn said, “I now serve in a leadership role as vice chair of city livability and bicycling in part due to his (Buttigieg’s) mentorship.”

I must admit that I don’t know what the vice chair of city livability and bicycling does, and I think this is the first time I have heard of that position in government, but I guess that is one of the more important things the U.S. Sec. of Transportation has worked on.

Eight, concerning reprobate minds and a global moral decline: this week, a priest in Maryland said, “A blanket of insanity has fallen upon the earth.”

He referenced an all-out assault against the unborn and those who defend them, the push for transgender mutilations of the young, the use of puberty-blocking drugs on innocent young children, the sexualization of children through drag shows and pornography in public libraries and schools, and the fact that prime-time TV recently depicted and celebrated Satan worship.

He rightly declared that this all-out satanic assault is coming from the White House and the president’s entire political party.

(My opinion: Killing and mutilating children, same-sex marriage, etc., are part of the globalist agenda to reduce the population of the earth. Satan’s influence over many of our leaders is so strong that the FBI has been weaponized against pro-lifers, the FBI has created a “threat tag” for pro-lifers, some pro-lifers have been arrested for silently praying outside abortion clinics, etc. It is the U.S. government’s persecution of citizens for legally praying, speaking, etc.).

Nine, concerning lukewarmness and a falling away in the Church at the end of the age: since 1686, Church members and citizens in Denmark have celebrated The Great Prayer Day on the fourth Friday after Easter.

Businesses close, and there are no tax collections on that day.

Anyway, Denmark’s parliament has canceled The Great Prayer Day because they want the taxes that can be collected by keeping the businesses open.

(My opinion: With more prayer, Denmark might not need the taxes.)

Ten, concerning the Antichrist and False Prophet requiring a Mark in the right hand or forehead to track all buying and selling during the Tribulation Period: on Mar. 5, 2023, an article in The Expose by Rhoda Wilson says:

“WEF supports the ‘merging of man and machine,’ or transhumanism, and its Fourth Industrial Revolution aims to use wearable and implantable technology to snoop on your thoughts and launch a digital dictatorship. Once implemented, a digital dictatorship will be almost impossible to escape from; one way to stop it is to not comply with or utilize these technologies.”

According to the Bible, those that take the Mark of the Beast in their right hand or forehead during the Tribulation Period will not be saved, and they will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire (Rev. 14:9-10).

Eleven, concerning lawlessness: theft is one of six sins that will be prevalent during the Tribulation Period that people will not repent of (Rev. 9:20-21).

On Mar. 4, 2023, it was reported that the last two Walmart stores in Portland, Oregon, will soon close because of increased shoplifting and the failure of government officials to do anything about it.

Other Portland companies that have also closed for the same reason include Raind PDX, Nike, and Cracker Barrel.

Hundreds of people are losing their jobs while their government refuses to act.

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.



Discussion with Russell Brand

This was a great talk, this is a clip from it.

Some very interesting points from Shane Idleman on Revival.

7 Important Ways to Steward Revival by Shane...

★★ Recommend Book: The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer https://amzn.to/2QDcY8a Website: http://www.sermonindex.netTwitter:...

- harbingersdaily.com/worldview-with-amir-...but-its-coming-soon/

Shalom from my home in Israel! It has been another very busy news week in our world. It is times like this that my volume of inquiries rises with many asking the question, “Amir, has the tribulation begun?” I understand the concern. The ground in Turkey and Syria can’t stop shaking. Now the earthquakes are being felt in Lebanon and Israel, and even all the way down to Egypt. And it’s not just the Middle East that’s acting like it’s on a trampoline. The Philippines, Indonesia, Oman, and other places around the world are shaking, too.

But it’s more than plate shifting that’s causing people to ask that question. Globalism is on the rise, while morality is plunging. The Ezekiel 38 nations of Russia, Iran, Turkey, and Sudan are all building alliances. Technology is advancing to the point where is it quite conceivable that the world will soon see a global currency, a unified belief system, and a microchipped populace. While Putin calls his year-old excursion into Ukraine a “military operation”, we all know that it is a war. And there are plenty of other areas around the world that are giving us rumors of wars.

It is because of what is happening in the world around us that I have written my next book, Has the Tribulation Begun?, which is releasing in May. But, don’t worry, I won’t make you wait two months for an answer to the question. No, the tribulation has not begun. How can I be sure? Because I am still here on this earth. The rapture must precede the tribulation. No rapture? No tribulation. What my new book delves into is why there is a need for a tribulation, how we can know that the time is close, how we can be sure that there is a rapture, and what will those who are left behind experience? It is the most evangelistic of my books, because the more I study the tribulation the greater grows my desire for those that I know and love to not have to experience it.

No, the tribulation has not begun. But it’s coming soon. So, let’s redeem the time we have left by sharing the hope that is found in Jesus the Messiah and the promise of eternal life that is extended to all people.

Romans 10:11-13 KJV – “For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

7,700 Earthquakes Have Shaken the Middle East Since February 7

Turkey and northern Syria continue to be ground zero for ground-shaking. Since the first two major quakes occurred on February 7, there have been more than 7,700 aftershocks. The largest, measuring 6.4, struck near the Turkish city of Antakya on Monday, killing six people. It took down dozens more buildings, many in Hatay province near the Syrian border, and was felt in Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and Egypt. The death toll of the original quake has climbed to more than 45,000 people, with 122,000 more injured.

Israel Targets Iranian Drone Experts in Syria

Israeli fighter jets killed at least 5 and wounded 15 more in a strike on the Kafar Sousah neighborhood of Damascus. Targeted was a meeting of Iranian experts on the development of drones. Some reports indicate that it was actually eight high ranking officials of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) who were killed, while others say that a Syrian engineer and an Iranian official were among the dead. The area hit serves as a security zone housing offices and branches of the IRGC’s Quds Force. Per policy, Israel declined to admit its role in the attack. Russia later condemned Israel’s actions, calling it a “flagrant violation” of international law.

Netanyahu’s Justice Reform Bill Clears First Hurdle

Early Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s judicial reform bill passed in its first reading. Heavily attacked by the Left, this bill will limit the expanding power of Israel’s judiciary by reducing the types of laws the High Court can review and taking the power to appoint judges away from other judges and putting it in the hands of the legislature. There are still a second and a third reading of the bill which must pass for the reform to go into effect.

UN Security Council Issues Statement Denying Jewish Right to Live in Historic Homeland

The United States joined other member nations of the UN Security Council in denouncing Israeli settlements in their historic homeland. The statement expressed “deep concern and dismay” over Israel’s decision to expand settlements, while ignoring the recent terrorist attacks against Israel by Palestinian groups and the fact that the Palestinian Authority subsidizes terrorism and pays the families of terrorists. Prime Minister Netanyahu criticized the denouncement, saying, “The statement should not have been made and the United States should not have joined it.”

IRGC Attacks Israeli-Owned Tanker Using Kamikaze Drones

The Campo Square, a Liberian-flagged oil tanker owned by an Israeli, was the victim of an attack by Shahed-136 suicide drones operated by the Iranian IRGC. These are the same drones being shipped by Iran to Russia for use in the conflict with Ukraine. There were no casualties or damages reported.

Sanction Battle Between the EU and Iran

The European Union on Monday expanded their sanctions related to Iran’s violent suppression of those protesting the September 2022 death of Mahsa Amini. Asset freezes and visa bans were imposed on 32 more Iranian officials, bringing the total sanctioned to 196 individuals and 33 entities. In response the next day, Iran issued retaliatory sanctions against 23 people and 13 industries from the EU and the UK. Regarding the protests, after a temporary lull they have once again fired up in earnest.

IAEA Admits 84% Uranium Enrichment by Iran

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) admitted to detecting uranium enriched to 84% at an Iranian nuclear facility. This means that this atomic watchdog agency is one of the few organizations that hasn’t quite realized that Iran has had weapons-grade 90% enriched uranium for a while now.

Iran’s Assassination Plot Against Diaspora Jews

A plot which involved Iran mapping the location of high-target diaspora Jews for assassination has been uncovered. The plan, revealed at a high-level meeting in Tehran, was intended to be implemented should Israel attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. Meanwhile, the Biden administration is pressuring the UK to refrain from designating this same IRGC as a terrorist group, this despite the fact that the European Parliament has recently made that designation as did the US under the previous administration. Washington is choosing to ignore Tehran’s assassination plots against innocent civilians in the hopes that somehow they can resurrect a failed nuclear deal with Iran.

High-Ranking Israeli Politicians Recommend Military Aid to Ukraine Following Visit

Yuli Edelstein and Ze’ev Elkin, two high level Israeli lawmakers, met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv on Monday. Both men are originally from Ukraine and lead the Ukrainian parliamentary friendship group in the Knesset. Following the meeting, they issued a joint statement which read, in part, “Israel has provided and will continue to provide extensive humanitarian aid to Ukraine, but, in our opinion, it is not enough.” The statement went on to encourage the Israeli government to provide military technologies to Ukraine to help in the war effort, a sentiment that is sure to get Israel into even deeper water with Russia.

US President Joe Biden Makes Surprise Visit to Ukraine

The day before the one year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, President Joe Biden made a surprise visit to Kyiv. In a meeting with Ukraine’s President Zelenskyy, Biden reaffirmed America’s support for the nation and pledged another half-billion dollars in military assistance. Moscow was informed of the visit ahead of time and they extended the courtesy of taking a brief break from their recent favorite pastime of raining down cruise missiles on the capital city.

US Warns China Against Supplying Arms to Russia

After US intelligence indicated that China is considering aiding Russia militarily in their effort against Ukraine, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken made a statement Sunday saying that such an action would not be good. Blinken said, “It was very important for me to share very clearly with [senior Chinese foreign policy official] Wang Yi that this would be a serious problem.” Not surprisingly, Wang Yi didn’t take kindly to Blinken’s statement, responding the next day, “We will not accept American finger-pushing in China-Russian relations.”

Vladimir Putin’s Moralistic Speech Marks Anniversary of Military Operation

Tuesday saw arch-villain Vladimir Putin making a speech to the federal assembly marking the one year anniversary of his “military operation” against Ukraine. In it, he emphasized the military power of Russia, saying that, since they cannot be defeated on the battlefield, the enemy is fighting a war of information. He then defended not only the righteousness of his actions, but the righteousness of the Russian nation. Taking the moral high ground, he spoke of the decadence of the West, saying, “It is all about the destruction of the family, of cultural and national identity, perversion and abuse of children, including pedophilia, all of which are declared normal in their life. They are forcing the priests to bless same-sex marriages…. But here is what I would like to tell them: look at the holy scripture and the main books of other world religions. They say it all, including that family is the union of a man and a woman, but these sacred texts are now being questioned. Reportedly, the Anglican Church is planning, just planning, to explore the idea of a gender-neutral god. What is there to say? Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” What we see in his words is an attempt to create common ground with Christians, Jews, and Muslims in order to garner their support. But we must not be fooled by holy-sounding rhetoric. Putin is a man who truly believes in his own righteousness. However, it is through his bloody actions that we see him for who he truly is.

US Holds Exercises with South Korea and Japan While North Korea Fires Missiles

The US held bilateral exercises with South Korea and with Japan on Sunday. Both Asian nations separately joined US fighters in escorting American B-1 bombers in a show of strength following North Korea’s firing of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM) into the Sea of Japan. If such exercises continue, North Korea threatens to implement an “unprecedented response”.

Deadly Marburg Virus Surfaces in Western Africa

Equatorial Guinea has seen an outbreak of the deadly Marburg virus, which kills 88% of its victims. The bat-borne, Ebola-related virus has already taken nine lives in the Central African country and another 16 cases are being investigated.

Abraham Accords in Action in Abu Dhabi

The Abraham Accords were on full display last week in Abu Dhabi, UAE. First, the Abrahamic Family House was inaugurated on Thursday. This interfaith center was built to celebrate the country’s history of religious diversity. Housing a synagogue, a mosque, and a church, all equally-sized white marble structures, the Abrahamic Family House can be applauded, not for its ecumenism which seeks to equate the value of all three faiths, but for the evidence it gives of the growing acceptance of Israel into the Arab world. The second sighting of the Abraham Accords was at the IDEX 2023 tri-service (army, navy, air force) defense exhibition, the largest of its kind. When it opened its doors on Monday, Israeli companies were allowed to participate for the very first time.



Luke 21:11: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Mark 13:8: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

As we are now two months not the year 2023 A.D., why are earthquakes and volcanic activity on the rise? The Bible speaks of “earthquakes in various places” at the end of the age. As of late, most of the of the earth’s tectonic plates as well as the major and minor faults around the entire globe have been extremely active.

Just this past week a massive earthquake measured at 7.8 on the Richter scale occurred in south-central Turkey near the border with Syria followed by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake the following day. It was the single most powerful quake in the entire Middle East since at least 1939.

The earthquake was so massive that it is being reported that a large portion of Turkey moved as much as 10 feet westward! Not only that, but the entire region has experienced several thousand aftershocks. The aftershocks were the catalyst for many of the buildings collapsing. As of today, the total estimated casualties is nearing 50,000. Our prayers go out to the regions and the people that have been affected by this tragedy.

You see, it’s one thing if an earthquake takes place in the North Pole or Alaska or even Antartica. But when you begin to see a series of seismic activity that take place near the HOLY LAND, take notice!!!

Now if one were to look deeper into the matter from a Biblical (or shall I say eschatological) vantage point you will discover that this seismic activity was not just felt in Turkey………The earthquake was also felt in: Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus, Lebanon, most of Israel and Jordan, and parts of Armenia, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. Even in Israel it was reported that not one, not to but three, three earthquakes have occurred from the Golan Heights area in the north to Eilat in the south. Many of the above mentioned regions are mentioned in the Bible !!!

As a matter of fact, seismic activity has picked up tremendously in the Holy Land as 30 more earthquakes have been registered according to the Geological Survey of Israel and continued aftershocks have occurred, are occurring and will continue to occur in this region :


It is very likely that the earthquakes that took place last week, specifically, may now have put into motion tectonic activity leading up to the bigger ones to come, as prophesied in Bible.

I believe that the Early Church and the Church in the last days will have many characteristics in common. In Matthew 24, Jesus stated the Gospel of the Kingdom would be preached unto all nations as a witness just like the Apostles took the Gospel throughout the known world which in that time was mainly the Roman Empire in constituency. There was an uptick in seismic and volcanic activity and this same phenomenon will be recapitulated prior to return of the LORD.

Timing is everything. That being said, I am convinced that is this is all in conjunction with the nearness of the Return of the LORD and a prelude to the coming SEAL/TRUMPET/BOWL judgments as listed in the Book of Revelation.

In addition, in Matthew 24, Christ told His disciples of the signs that would precede His Second Coming. In verse 7, He stated, “and there shall be…earthquakes, in diverse places.”

This meant earthquakes would take place in various places—scattered throughout the world—and would increase in frequency as the time of His Return drew near. Let me also add that not only can the earth tremble and quake at God’s presence, but volcanoes erupt as well.

Nahum 1:5—The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.

Had earthquakes been as prolific throughout history as they are today, then they would not indicate that the end of the age was near. They are much more common now than at any other time in the history of the world.

An earthquake played a prominent role at Jesus’ Crucifixion:

Matthew 27:50-54—Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. 51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. 54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

In similar fashion yet another earthquake took place at the resurrection of Jesus Christ 3 days later:

Matthew 28:1-6—In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher. 2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. 5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

There was an earthquake at the death of Jesus Christ. There was an earthquake at the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I for one, am of the impression that there will most likely be seismic activity of gargantuan proportions when the Dead in Christ (many whom are buried underground) are resurrected at the Rapture of the Church. Interesting speculation Indeed!!!!

1 Thessalonians 4:14-17—For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

Interestingly enough, a major earthquake will accompany the very return of the Lord Jesus Christ at His Second Coming when the Mud of Olives will be split in two as Jesus sets foot back on this earth:

Zechariah 14:4-9—-Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 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. 3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. 6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: 7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. 8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. 9 And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.

The book of Revelation foretells FIVE specific powerful earthquakes preceding and surrounding Christ’s Return. Each is unique, and occurs at a particular juncture of God’s final prophetic timeline. Let’s take a look at ONE of them:

In Chapter 11 of the Book of Revelation you notice a major earthquake that takes place during the seven year tribulation period AFTER the Church is caught up and this involves the two prophets and their ministry as well as the Anti-Christ:

Revelation 11:3-13—And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

You will notice that the two Witnesses of God (whom any Bible scholars state will be Elijah and either Moses or Enoch) perform their ministry and prophesy for 42 months, or 3 1/2 years.At the conclusion of their ministry they are overcome and killed by Antichrist who is indwelt by the beast from the pit aka Abaddon/Apollyon. They lie dead on the street in Jerusalem for three and one-half days when the Spirit of God resurrects both of the Two Witnesses and they are harpazoed or raptured into heaven with the command “Come up hither” ….The same phrase mentioned in Revelation 4 when the Church is harpazoed or raptured into Heaven (Revelation 4:1–After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither….)

So, when the two witnesses are caught up, the resulting earthquake occurs in Jerusalem decimating ten percent of the city and killing seven thousand residents.

Now, In the Old Testament, many of God’s prophets spoke about earthquakes, especially the final, greatest one preceding Christ’s Return.

Isaiah 13:13: “I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger.”

Isaiah 24:19-20: “The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage…”

Ezekiel 38:20: “…all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at My presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.”

Joel 3:16: “The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake …”

Haggai 2:6-7: “For thus says the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations [Jesus Christ] shall come…”

God very soon will involve Himself in the affairs of this world in a way He has never done before. Earthquakes and volcanoes will play a major role in what is coming…………….

Romans 8:19-23—For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

1 John 3:1-3—1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

As fearful and destructive as they may appear to be, God in his infinite wisdom and sovereignty will use earthquakes to reshape the earth’s surface, in preparation for the greatest time of peace and abundance that mankind has ever experienced.

This indeed is a time that the whole world can truly look forward to. And it is here! The shaking has already begun.



Sad news hearing that the people of Ohio not getting the proper government help, where they are suffering from the aftermath of chemicals pummelled into the air with the train crash. 


What an amazing time of revival sweeping across Asbury University in Kentucky. It is a power of the Spirit bringing conviction upon the hearts of these students and those who are coming along.

Shalom from what has been a very stormy Israel! Rain, hail, and snow have all taken their turns these past few days, while high winds have brought down trees in various locations. Finally, the moisture moved on, but it has left many higher elevations with a beautiful blanket of white. Apparently, our weather system temporarily forgot that we are a coastal Mediterranean country.

What a week this has been! Watching the aftermath of the major earthquakes in Turkey and Syria and their many aftershocks has been gut-wrenching. I’ll talk about it in more detail below, but here I want to focus on the big picture. This massive natural disaster has been eye-opening in two major ways.

First, it contrasted the culture of life in the Middle East with the culture of death in the West. Why were so many children killed, hurt, or trapped in Turkey and Syria? Because in the Middle East, children are highly valued. Abortion is rare and the idea of allowing a child to die either inside or outside of the womb without the greatest effort being taken to save it is anathema to the society. Compare that to the laissez faire attitude toward unborn children in the West. If a mother feels that the child will be inconvenient to her life, killing it is not only acceptable but in many circles it is applauded.

This is because in the West, “me-firstism” is the prevalent attitude of the culture. What an incredible victory this is for the enemy, who himself fell when he took his eyes off of God and his created role of being a servant of others and put them on himself. Is it any wonder that between the first and the second major earthquakes last week, the world was exposed to a celebration of Satan at the Grammy Awards in Southern California? While there are certainly many faults in the culture of the Middle East, the relegation of a child’s life or death to the simple whim of another person is not one of them.

Second, the earthquakes have reminded the church that we are squarely in the “birth pangs” that Jesus spoke of to His disciples in Matthew 24. In the last three years, we have had a global pandemic that has killed nearly seven million people. We are seeing a WWII level military conflict in eastern Europe that has claimed hundreds of thousands of casualties. And we are seeing an increase in strength and frequency of earthquakes, including last week’s temblors in Turkey that will likely see well over 20,000 dead by the time all the missing are found. But, if you think that what you have seen thus far is overwhelming, just wait. Dr. Ata Richard Elias from the Lebanese University in Beirut has said that one more shift of the Arab plate would erase Lebanon off the face of the map.

I’m not saying all this to frighten you. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, then you should have no fear. I am telling you this to remind you that the time of Jesus’ return is coming soon. What we are experiencing now will pale in comparison to what those left behind at the rapture will endure. Use this moment as motivation to share the truth with your friends and family members who have not given their lives to Christ. As we look around, it is quite evident that the time is short. Do it today!

Historic Earthquake Devastates Turkey and Northern Syria

At a little past 1:00 AM on Monday morning, the ground began shaking in southern and central Turkey and western Syria. Because of its shallowness, the 7.8 quake devastated the region. Nine hours later, a second quake struck, this one 7.5-7.6, with an epicenter less than 100 km away from the first. The damage has been catastrophic. More than 12,000 are confirmed dead with another 45,000 missing. Many of these are buried in the rubble of 8500 collapsed buildings, which will undoubtedly double and possibly triple the current death toll. Those without a roof over their heads number greater than 380,000, a number which is even more tragic considering the snow and below freezing temperatures in much of the affected area. There is so much more that can be said about this tragedy than can be mentioned in this format. I would encourage you to subscribe to my Telegram channel to get up to the minute news about this and other global events. Also, please watch my Special Middle East Update from yesterday. It is full of insights about the earthquakes and how they fit into the grand scope of Bible prophecy.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Rescue Efforts

Planes have flooded into Turkey and Syria from all around the world bringing thousands of rescue workers and relief supplies. Israel was one of the first teams to arrive, and the size of its delegation is second only to that of Azerbaijan. Miraculously, survivors continue to be found in the rubble of the collapsed buildings, including many children. God is certainly answering the prayers that are being offered up by His global church. Unfortunately, the rescue efforts are very dangerous. A near continuous series of aftershocks are still bringing down buildings and at least one rescue crew has been lost to a collapsing structure. When it comes to the ugly, it is not surprising to find Iran in that role. For years, Iran has been secretly shipping weapons into Syria for its own military and to supply its terrorist militias. Now they have a window of opportunity that they are taking full advantage of during which they are bringing in war materiel disguised as relief supplies knowing that Israel cannot touch it.

Iran Shows Ballistic Missile with a Special Message to Israel

Last week, I told you about the brilliant Israeli operation that used quadcopter drones to precisely target a piece of machinery in a nuclear facility in Isfahan, Iran. Apparently, the ayatollahs are a little upset about the incident. This week, they displayed a ballistic missile in its launcher in Isfahan upon which was written the Hebrew words, “Death to Israel”. Hmmmm, I wonder who that’s for….

IDF Kills Hamas Terrorists in Jericho

Two members of Hamas failed in their January 28 attempt to fire into a crowded restaurant in Vered Yeriho near Jericho when their weapons jammed. The Shin Bet and IDF Intelligence Directorate tracked the terrorists to their apartment in the nearby Aqabat Jaber refugee camp where they had barricaded themselves in. On Monday morning, the IDF raided the camp in order to capture the ones responsible. Other members of the new Hamas-affiliated terrorist group “Aqabat Jaber Battalion” fought back resulting in the deaths of at least five of its members.

Israel Deepens Relationship with Sudan

Following a lightning one-day trip to Khartoum last week, Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen announced that his government expects to fully normalize ties with Sudan later this year. This will be the fourth in a series of US-brokered normalization deals for Israel following the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Morocco.

Germany Approves Sending Leopard 1 Tanks to Ukraine

As the war rages on in Ukraine, Germany, Denmark, and the Netherlands have pledged to send the beleaguered nation at least 100 refurbished Leopard 1 tanks. The German defense minister, Boris Pistorius, said that his government approved sending up to 178 of the older generation tanks, but the actual number would depend on the speed of the repair process. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy received a hero’s welcome in Britain’s parliament yesterday when he made a surprise visit to the UK in order to try to drum up some more sophisticated weaponry for his military, particularly fighter jets. From London, Zelenskyy will travel to Paris for talks with French President Emmanuel Macron.

Is Ukraine Nearing Defeat?

There are some who say that with upgraded weaponry, Ukraine could mount a counter-offensive and push Russia back. Not so, says General Waldemar Skrzypczak, former commander of the Polish Land Forces. “The Ukrainians predicted the Russian offensive and its directions. [Kyiv’s military] will defend themselves until they inflict maximum damage,” said the general. “Some say they should counterattack. However, the Ukrainians do not have the strength and means to carry out a counter-offensive.” This is especially true with the Russians launching a new major offensive in Lugansk Oblast, while continuing to inflict heavy damage in many other areas of the country. General Skrzypczak claims that Ukraine is nearing total defeat. These next weeks will show whether his prediction is true.

Russian Frigate Armed with Unstoppable Missile Prepares for Another Exercise

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about the Russian frigate Admiral Gorshkov which had conducted a training exercise centered around the firing of a hypersonic Zircon missile. Now it has been announced that the ship will participate in another Zircon firing drill, this time as part of a military exercise which will include Russia, China, and host country South Africa.

Finland Sticks with Sweden

Finnish Defense Minister Mikko Savola put to rest Monday the speculation that his country might try to join NATO without fellow Nordic nation Sweden. At a conference in Oslo, Savola emphasized the importance of the two nations entering the alliance together. It will be interesting to see if the aftermath of the earthquakes in Turkey affects in any way President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ongoing veto of the nations.

Kim Jong-un Brings Military to Full Readiness

In his constant battle against irrelevance, it seems that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was feeling upstaged by the Turkey quakes. So, to get himself back in the news cycle, he has ordered his army to be brought to a state of “full combat readiness”. Personal message to the Supreme Leader: Don’t worry, habibi, we’ve seen you. You can tell your army to relax now.
