New Moon Message 1/6/34/120

Dear Friends,

Further to last Sabbath’s Message we will go on to look at what is to happen in the Middle East. The prophet Daniel was given the story of the Last Days and the return of the Messiah for the First Resurrection.

Daniel 11
[40] "At the time of the end the king of the south shall attack him; but the king of the north shall rush upon him like a whirlwind, with chariots and horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall come into countries and shall overflow and pass through.

This text deals with the last phase of the wars of the Kings of the North and South. The sequence is set off by an attack of the King of the South against the King of the North. We might assume that this was accomplished in the activities of 2001 and the advent of terrorism but there is yet to be another attack of greater significance. 2001 did set off the wars of the end and was in effect the start of WWIII but there is much more to be done and the conflicts will simply increase.

The sequence was discussed in the paper The Last Thirty Years: The Final Struggle (No. 219). Written in 1997 for the Feast of Tabernacles that year it was never envisaged that we would be in Afghanistan and what were the Central Soviet Republics in four years. When it was released people were cynical but it all unfolded just as the Bible said it would. The date of 2001 was given and was quite correct. These wars have continued and they are about to escalate now into the final phases of WWIII.

Verse 40 shows the first phase of the invasion of many countries. We have seen that happen already and we are in that phase now. The major attack is yet to occur.

That is being enabled now in this uprising of the so-called Arab Spring.  NATO has assisted in the overthrow of Gadhafi in Libya. It is for this reason that the Libyans will be more eager to support NATO in the coming conflicts in the sense that they will be more easily subjugated as the events develop.

Egypt was a successful revolution and the reorganization is seeing the Muslim Brotherhood strengthen its position. That is not yet realized.  

Syria is also under revolt but the Russian and Chinese systems are supporting the regime in Syria by preventing effective UN intervention.

The Yemen will also overthrow the more stable US backed system.  Iran is supporting and is supported by Syria and Lebanon in Hezbollah and in Gaza by Hamas. Once these regimes suffer change the rise of the Sunni influence in Syria will be counterbalanced by the Shi’ite actions and the terrorist developments in the Middle East generally. 

Egypt will continue to develop the fundamentalist activities of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, aided by Hezbollah, and will continue to incite the Middle East to attack Israel.

For this reason the UN sequence of 20 September referred to in the Sabbath Message is so dangerous and the activities that will follow it will simply escalate.  Islamic thrusts at Europe will continue.

Egypt and Gaza will continue to escalate this problem until the NATO alliance will be forced to enter Israel and occupy Gaza to prevent total war and at the same time take control of Egypt. Jordan will not be occupied but conflict will begin to involve all the nations to the east and the north of Israel.

Continuing Daniel 11
[41] He shall come into the glorious land. And tens of thousands shall fall, but these shall be delivered out of his hand: Edom and Moab and the main part of the Ammonites. [42] He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. [43] He shall become ruler of the treasures of gold and of silver, and all the precious things of Egypt; and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall follow in his train. [44] But tidings from the east and the north shall alarm him, and he shall go forth with great fury to exterminate and utterly destroy many. [45] And he shall pitch his palatial tents between the sea and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, with none to help him.

Note here that the Ethiopians are in his train as well as the Libyans. Thus the action in the Yemen will stretch into The Horn of Africa. However, the nations of the Horn will do the bidding of NATO also as this assistance of NATO has made them more amenable.

It is at this time of the subjugation of the troubles in Egypt and the Levant that a major activity occurs that causes the King of the North to become alarmed. This action or threat escalates WWIII into full scale destruction that sees nations and tribes exterminated. The Islamist reactions to the NATO entry will see the conflict escalate to include the entire region. That will also drag Russia and China into the conflict probably through opportunism but also influenced by their alliances. China is an ally of Pakistan and has been for many years. There is no question in the minds of the Pakistani military that if they were forced into wholesale war then China would enter on their side and that belief is firmly entrenched among their military.  

The equation altering considerations are these:

  1. Pakistan has nuclear weapons and has had for some time
  2. Russia has at least 100 satchel nukes missing since the 90s and they may well be in the Middle East.
  3. The old Soviet nuclear silo system in Kazakhstan is now part of the reformed Soviet defence alliance.
  4. Iran is determined and will produce a nuclear weapon in the near future.
  5. China is also a major nuclear power with the largest fighter air force in the world and since the 1970s they have had first strike nuclear environment fighter capacity. They achieved that in the valve fitted MIG 21B Foxbats.

In opposition there is a nuclear force of over 300 nukes in Israel; and the NATO forces have at least the equivalent nuclear force of these other powers.

Israel has the capacity to fly as many sorties as the US by rotating pilots in aircraft.

Nothing other than a nuclear threat would cause the alarm spoken of here by the prophet Daniel. Unless of course it were a concomitant bio chemical or other threat also associated with that possibility.

At this time the Four Angels will be released from Tartaros at the Euphrates to kill a third of mankind.

This great extermination sees the King of the North return to the Levant and occupy the Gaza strip from the Mediterranean and extend it all the way to and in occupation of Jerusalem.

That will become world headquarters of the NWO and it will remain so for 42 months.

Over that period the Two Witnesses will also stand in Jerusalem for 1260 days and then they will be killed and lie in the streets for 3.5 days and then the First Resurrection will occur at the shout of the Archangel Michael (see Rev. chapter 11). These activities are about to unfold over the next few years.

A financial disaster is being organised for September-October of 2011. The chaos in Europe and the financial collapse will see the Islamists emboldened and take action from that period through 2012 and the escalation of WWIII will occur from then on. World finances are being parked in the central banks.

It is at this time that God will order the Host to act. The purpose will be to save the very elect. From the return of the Host the world will be brought down to Megiddo and into captivity for the millennial system. However, the world will not come willingly and they will actually fight against Messiah and the Host declaring them aliens. In fact they are already announcing that, because we have allegedly allowed this global warming, alien species will intervene to stop us from destroying the environment. The fact that we have nothing to do with it and the earth warms every thousand years whether we like it or not is irrelevant. Global Warming is solar induced and other planets are warming as we are and that is a known scientific fact. Global Warming is a cyclical matter and we all know it is (see the paper Global Warming: Historical Cycles (No. 218b))

Daniel chapter 12 speaks of the Resurrection of the Dead. The section of 12:1 tells of the time of trouble such that the earth has never seen. These activities are the vials of the Wrath of God in the sequence of Revelation. The First Resurrection precedes the millennial education of the earth and the Second Resurrection of Judgment which educates all mankind.

Daniel 12
[1] "At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time; but at that time your people shall be delivered, every one whose name shall be found written in the book. [2] And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. [3] And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. [4] But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase." [5] Then I Daniel looked, and behold, two others stood, one on this bank of the stream and one on that bank of the stream. [6] And I said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, "How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?" [7] The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven; and I heard him swear by him who lives for ever that it would be for a time, two times, and half a time; and that when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to an end all these things would be accomplished. [8] I heard, but I did not understand. Then I said, "O my lord, what shall be the issue of these things?" [9] He said, "Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end. [10] Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but those who are wise shall understand. [11] And from the time that the continual burnt offering is taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. [12] Blessed is he who waits and comes to the thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. [13] But go your way till the end; and you shall rest, and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of the days."

The time of the Witnesses is 1260 days. From there we will see a further 3.5 days as part of the thirty days and then another 45 days which will see the total reorganisation of the elect of the First Resurrection.
