Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils – 1 Timothy 4:1 (KJV).
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction – 2 Peter 2:1 (KJV).
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many -Matthew 24:11 (KJV).
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry – 2 Timothy 4:3-5 (KJV).
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: -2 Thessalonians 2:9-11 (KJV).
WHAT DOES “PALESTINE” MEAN?
It has never been the name of a nation or state. It is a geographical term, used to designate the region at those times in history when there is no nation or state there. The word itself derives from “Peleshet”, a name that appears frequently in the Bible and has come into English as “Philistine”.
The Philistines were mediterranean people originating from Asia Minor and Greek localities. They reached the southern coast of Israel in several waves. One group arrived in the pre-patriarchal period and settled south of Beersheba in Gerar where they came into conflict with Abraham, Isaac and Ishmael. Another group, coming from Crete after being repulsed from an attempted invasion of Egypt by Rameses III in 1194 BCE, seized the southern coastal area, where they founded five settlements (Gaza, Ascalon, Ashdod, Ekron and Gat). In the Persian and Greek periods, foreign settlers – chiefly from the Mediterranean islands – overran the Philistine districts. From the time of Herodotus, Greeks called the eastern coast of the Mediterranean “Syria Palaestina”.
The Philistines were not Arabs nor even Semites, they were most closely related to the Greeks. They did not speak Arabic. They had no connection, ethnic, linguistic or historical with Arabia or Arabs. The name “Falastin” that Arabs today use for “Palestine” is not an Arabic name. It is the Arab pronunciation of the Greco-Roman “Palastina”; which is derived from the Plesheth, (root palash) was a general term meaning rolling or migratory. This referred to the Philistine’s invasion and conquest of the coast from the sea. The use of the term “Palestinian” for an Arab ethnic group is a modern political creation which has no basis in fact – and had never had any international or academic credibility before 1967.
Who owns the Temple Mount and Golan Heights and West Bank?
After the exile, Israeli’s prophetically regained Jerusalem, West Bank, and Golan Heights in the Six Day War of 1967, the Temple Mount was included.
Of course, recognition of Israel as a state, the Temple Mount and the notion for a two-state solution remains a pivotal contention between Israel and the “Crafty Counsel.” It is in fact, embroiled in heated political upheavals and wars. Most recently, we saw the conflict of the Gaza war. To this day, Palestinians and the “Crafty Counsel” assert that “Israel” occupies their land.
Is that really true? The short answer is no. Nonetheless, it has never stopped the propaganda mill from churning and spewing its lies throughout the world, and unfortunately, it has caused much Jewish hatred as a result.
Why are Muslims Allowed to Occupy Temple Mount?
A false prophet and a false religion, Islam, created nearly hundreds of years after Christianity,would certainly in and of itself reveal that the muslims do not have any rights to the Holy Land, much less Temple Mount. Nonetheless, currently the Muslims ‘occupy the temple mount,’ under a Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, (the term ‘waqf’ literally means “confinement and prohibition”), a trust that was established in 1187.
In order to maintain peace among Israels’ neighboring enemies, the Israeli government has chosen the “politically correct” route for the Temple Mount; meaning, in order to maintain peace, the Israeli police by a sustained cooperative force from the Israeli government, has enforced rules that prohibited Jews to pray or to perform any religious act at the Temple Mount. Historically, any signs of Jewish religious acts incites violent protests from the satanic muslims. While this enforcement was overturned in a recent landmark court ruling, police continue to block Jews from the Temple Mount, or make it a difficult endeavor. The most recent issue occurring over Passover weekend, that tells us this is clearly not the end to the problem either. (Please also see The Historic Ruling: Police Must allow Jewish Prayer on Temple Mount).
Part of the issue has been that Muslims regard the Holy Land, including Temple Mount, as sacred. They also hold the belief that the land was taken away from the Jews as a punishment from God, and because of the great sin of the Jews, it was given to the Muslims under the ordained power of Allah. The hypocrisy of this statement is beyond laughable, but it is a great example of being under a ‘strong delusion’. Anyway, no further comment, other than, cursed be those who make up false stories!
Its sacredness is tied to a great delusion that prophet Muhammad, who through imaginative descriptions,claimed to have ascended to heaven (more like descended to hell) and returned with instructions from Allah (satan) to begin teaching the islamic religion (cult). Myth it is, but that did not stop them from building the Dome of the Rock,a commemorative to Muhammed, to consecrate the very spot where he “spupposedly” ascended.
According to the truth, the Word of God, prior to erecting these muslim abominations on Temple Mount, Jewish Temples were built there, as instructed by God. 2 Chronicles 3:1-2 specifically states the first Jewish temple was built by King Solomon the son of King David in 957 BCE. The first temple met its destruction at the hands of the Babylonians in 586 BCE. The second temple was constructed under the influence of Zerubbabel during the reign of King Cyrus, in 516 BCE, and later expanded by King Herod (See Ezra 6:14). The second temple was later destroyed by the Roman Empire in 70 BCE, fulfilling what Jesus had prophesied in Mark 13:1-2.
As you can see from the dates, knowing the history of the exile, (which was not included here), the land was never taken away, the Jews were exiled, and it was certainly not given to a false religion.
Now that we have the history of the Temple Mount out-of-the-way, lets focus on Gaza, West Bank and the Golan Heights -It should be known, that biblically, this is referred to as the “Ancient Heights” in the bible.
For the sake of clearing up confusion, I want to direct our attention to the Holy Word of our Heavenly Father, as this answer comes straight from none other than the Word of God.
Way back in Genesis 15:18, Abraham was promised all the land between the Euphrates and the Nile. That covenant between Abraham and God stands today. Skipping forward in history, there are four major prophesies that need to be understood. Not only does this impact end time events, but it restores any confusion about the Golan Heights and West Bank, and should end any further questions about the two-state solution, and most importantly, who owns and control the promise land- which is our Heavenly Father.
It is very important to understand that while Israel til this day remains in rebellion, God will not break this covenant.
As you know, everything that God does has a purpose and a reason, both good and bad, God uses it all to bring his plans to fruition. Because of that, even what we are about to read, is tied to many other events both biblical and historical. These prophecies are woven together with other future prophecies that we cannot possibly cover in one paper. Our focus will be specifically on four prophecies that need our attention.
- Israel became a Nation in one Day and the Spiritual Revival – Ezekiel 4:4-6
- Regathering of Israel to their Nation – Ezekiel 37 (which is continuing even as of today!)
- Restoring the Ancient Heights to Israel – Ezekiel 36:1-5 and 38:6-7,12
- The Promise that Ancient Heights would Never be Taken from Israel Again – Ezekiel 36:8-12
Israel became a Nation in one Day and the Spiritual Revival
In 606 B.C. Israel lost its rights as an independent nation. According to Jeremiah it was punishment for not yielding to the “Servitude of the Nation” which began in 606 B.C., (See Jeremiah 27:6,8,11; 38:17-21, Jeremiah 29:10).
In Ezekiel 4:4-6, it was prophesied that Israel would become a future independent nation.
Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it: according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon it thou shalt bear their iniquity. 5 For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. 6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year – Ezekiel 4:4-6 (KJV).
That prophecy was fulfilled after the period known as the “Servitude of the Nation” (God’s punishment of Israel). In November of 1947, the UN portioned the land giving Israel control over everything, but allowing the Muslims to remain in the Gaza strip, which is West Bank and Golan Heights. This divide was met with hostile aggression from the Palestinians (Tents of Edom) who refused to acknowledge Israel as a sovereign state and wanted to be an independent nation of Israel, with a capital in Jerusalem. So, once again, the Tents of Edom invaded. After a year-long war to drive the Jews out, Israel won the war again!
God clearly controls who divides the land of Israel. On May 14, 1948, Israel was officially declared a nation. This war was truly won by the sole hand of God, as well as other subsequent Muslim-Israeli wars.
Ezekiel 36:1-5 and 38:6-7,12, prophesied yet another event for Israel. This prophecy promised Israel that the “ancient heights” would be returned to them. Ancient Heights are Golan Heights and West Bank.(As a side note, the Nimrod, who is responsible for introducing many false religions post flood, had his fortress near the Golan Heights). This prophecy saw its fulfillment in the six-day war of 1967. Again, worth noting, it was God who ordained this, not man.
Once Ancient Heights was returned by the sole hand of God, Ezekiel 36:8-12 clearly states another prophecy, the promise that once Israel regained possession of the disputed land, it would never again be taken away from them:
But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come. 9 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown: 10 And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded: 11 And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 12 Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel; and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them of men – Ezekiel 36:8-12 (KJV).
What does this mean for the peace talks for a two state solution? It means it is null and void. It is futile. It means that the Tents of Edom, and their “crafty counsel” are in rebellion of God’s ordained plan. God does not change, nor does his promises. So, after knowing this, if there is any doubt who is the owner of this land, make no mistake about it, it is our Heavenly Father. It does not belong to the Palestinians, known biblically as the “tents of Edom.” Nor should we garner hatred towards Israel because God decreed this promise. We must remember that God is showing himself, he wants man to know who HE is, it is his desire that all men reside with him in eternity. All meaning, even those who remain against the Kingdom and the teachings of Jesus Christ.
When we start to unfold prophetic passages, it is these key issues that must be understood, through this lens, we must grasp that God ordained this promise and stop the lies and the siding against the Jewish people. It is also a good indicator of how the future wars that are prophesied will come into play. The heated battle that remains today, over the Holy Land of God, including the Holy Site, Temple Mount, where the future Ezekiel Temple is to be built.
I encourage you to read the “The Crafty Counsel” Signs Historic Treaty that Creates an ‘Arab Unified Military Force’. As this is another partial fulfillment of prophecy. The ‘crafty counsel” are the same groups spoken about in both the future prophecy of Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83. Isaiah 17- the Burden of Damascus is led by the Tents of Edom aka the Palestinians. Which as we can see, they are truly today living in TENTS.
All we can do is pray, and know that God is in control! We know from prophecy that the land is promised and anything or anyone that tries to divide it is in fact in rebellion of God’s HOLY WORD. All I can say is, GOD DOES NOT CHANGE nor BREAK HIS COVENANTS.
Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days,which ye will not believe, though it be told you. (6) For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwelling places that are not theirs. (7) They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves- Habakkuk 1:5-7 (KJV).
Who are the Chaldeans would also be a wonderful future reading for those who want to understand biblical prophecy ..the Chaldean’s are in fact synonymous with “Babylonians” the very region that is in conflict today! (Isaiah 13:19; 47:1, 5;48:14, 20). It is interesting, and too much to share here, that these modern regions, Golan Heights, Iraq, Turkey, and Syria (shown in map below) were all apart of the Babylonian empire, established by Nimrod and later expanded by other Kings, all who carried on the mystery RELIGIONS established by Nimrod and his wife/mother.
The Babylonia area is rich in biblical history- and plays a monumental role in future biblical prophecy. The most important thing to know is that these very regions today, remain with mystery religions, mystery gods – and they are indeed the regions where false gods and false prophets originated from, introduced by Nimrod and his wife/mother. Very Interesting to point out too, that Constantine, who ordained the changing of Passover and helped declare the Nicaean Creed,(which God also hates) moved and called his “New Rome” the city of ‘Constantinople’, which is known today as ‘Istanbul,’ the capital of Turkey. This is where the “seat of satan” was also at, as mentioned in Revelation 2:13. (Learn more about the Nicolaitans see Acts 6:5, 2 Peter 2:15 -19, Jude 1:4, and Revelation 2:6, 2:15-16, and 19:15).
But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate – Revelation 2:6 (KJV).
The old Babylonia is situated along the The Tigris and The Euphrates – it is where the Garden of Eden was once located and the very place that Adam and Eve were created.
The Babylonian Kingdom was in its prime, when God called Abraham to lead the people, who was from the tribe – ‘Ur Of The Chaldees’ (Genesis 11:31, 11:28, and Genesis 15:7). After many centuries of blood baths and battles, the empire eventually came under rule of the Assyrians, from about 885 to 607 B.C. During that period, the Assyrians, conquered and took the northern kingdom of Israel.
Babylonia was divided into Accad to the north, and Summer (“Shinar” Nimrod was the King of Shinar in the Old Testament) to the south. Along with Ur and the city of Babylon itself. (Genesis 10:10, Genesis 14:1,2 Kings 17:24). All tracing back to Nimrod (Genesis 10:9).
Nimrod built the Tower of Babel, established the Babylonia system- the world’s first kingdom, and its powerful grip and system have steered the world ever since—the system of organized competition—of man-ruled governments and empires, based upon the competitive and profit-making economic system. The name Nimrod, in Hebrew, is derived from “Marad,” meaning “he rebelled.”
As we are aware, God destroyed the tower of babel, and scattered the people and confounded the languages, resulting in the various name changes to Nimrod. After the different groups were scattered, they still continued to worship Nimrod as a god (biblically Baal), using other names and images to portray him, depending upon the country and language. Many of these are recognizable today: Fortuna and Jupiter in Rome; Aphrodite and Adonis in Greece; and Ashtoreth/Astarte and Molech/Baal in Canaan, etc.
The New Babylonian Empire, which existed from 606 to 536 B.C., took complete control of the southern kingdom of Judah in 586 B.C. At this time, King Nebuchadnezzar was in power, and his rule, the Babylonians (Chaldeans) completely destroyed the city of Jerusalem, looted and burned the Temple of God, built by Solomon, and took the people of Judah, including the prophets Daniel and Ezekiel, into captivity.
After 70 years of reign, the Babylonian empire, the “head of gold” in as described in Daniel’s Statue (Daniel 2:32), came to an abrupt end, falling to the Persians (Modern day Iraq).
There is so much more to prophecy that has yet to unfold, but hopefully we can begin to see much clearer the parts playing out today.
And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders – Micah 5:6 (KJV).
And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: (2) With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. (3) 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. (4) 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: (5) And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (6) 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 – Revelation 17: 1-6 (KJV).
