Divide the land, go to war
The Bible predicts dividing the land of Israel will be an act of aggression and exploitation, not peace, as it slowly gives away Israel to its enemies.
God promises revenge on those who harm Israel in this way.
The end time captivity of Israel
3 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
3 And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
*** How Israel is treated now. A commodity to be bought and sold
4 Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompense? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompense upon your own head;
*** The enemies of Israel never seem to change. Tyre and Zidon represents Lebanon and Hezbollah, and Palestine represents Hamas.
5 Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things:
6 The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.
*** Lebanon and the Palestinians terrorists “sell” the Jews to the western countries, by claiming victimhood, and having the western countries turn against Israel, to profit the enemies in land and money.
7 Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompense upon your own head:
*** Promise of return for the Jews. This occurs after they return to Israel. This is also a spiritual deliverance.
8 And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the Lord hath spoken it.
*** Sabeans – Yemen
***Punishment for those who persecute Israel.

Hurricane Katrina (2005) occurred after Jews forced from their homes in Gaza
War proclaimed against anti- Israel nations:
9 Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
10 Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.
11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O Lord.
12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
*** This is the 6th seal of Revelation
The Lord rescues Israel
16 The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
17 So shall ye know that I am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.
Restoration of Israel
18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth out of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim.
19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
20 But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.
21 For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the Lord dwelleth in Zion.
Daniels’ description of the fierce leader of the last days
Western lands oppose him, he opposes the holy covenant
Dan 11:30 For the ships of Chittim [western coastlands] shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved [will lose heart], and return [turn back], and have indignation [vent his fury] against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with [show favor to] them that forsake the holy covenant.
The abomination of desolation
Dan 11:31 And arms [His armed forces] shall stand [rise up] on his part, and they shall pollute [desecrate] the sanctuary of strength [temple fortress], and shall take away [abolish] the daily sacrifice, and they shall place [set up] the abomination that maketh desolate [causes desolation].
He uses flattery to win favor with Israel’s enemies, Jews resist and experience harm
Dan 11:33 And they that understand [are wise] among the people shall instruct many: yet [for a time] they shall fall by the sword, and by flame [be burned], by captivity [be captured], and by spoil [plundered], many days.
*** martyrdom of the saints – 5th seal of Revelation
Dan 11:34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with [receive] a little help: but many shall cleave to [join] them with flatteries [who are not sincere].
*** flattery again!
Dan 11:35 And some of them of understanding [the wise] shall fall [stumble], to try [refine] them, and to purge [purify them], and to make them white [spotless], even to [until] the time of the end: because it is yet for a [for it will still come at the] time appointed.
*** time of the end mentioned
Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will [as he pleases]; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous [unheardof] things against the God of gods, and shall prosper[be successful] till the indignation [time of wrath] be accomplished [is completed]: for that that is determined shall be done [must take place].
*** the king will be around until wrath is finished
*** king has a religious history, but is godless himself.
*** worships power, gold and silver, sounds like the Illuminati
Dan 11:39 Thus shall he do in [will attack] the most strong holds [mightiest fortresses] with [the help of] a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them [who acknowledge him] to rule over many, and shall divide [distribute] the land for gain [at a price, for a reward].
*** divides the land for gain. Help from a strange god.
Dan 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at [engage] him [in battle]: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen [cavalry], and with many ships; and he shall enter into the [invade many] countries, and shall overflow [like a flood] and pass over [sweep through them].
*** he is in conflict with Syria and Egypt
*** time of the end mentioned
The King invades
Dan 11:41 He shall enter [invade] also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children [leaders] of Ammon.
** he does not invade Jordan
*** (north?) and (east?) are a concern to him
Dan 11:45 And he shall plant [pitch] the tabernacles [royal tents] of his palace between the seas in [-or- the sea and] the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
*** the king has an embassy in Israel
My main concern is that the “king of the end times” is a US President.
I hope this is wrong, but we are a major world power at this time.
While we may do things for the right reasons, we think, ….we can do things that are wrong, and create more trouble.
I pray that our leaders do not destroy Israel with their liberal, non biblical version of “peace.”
From what I am seeing they have, and so I pray God forgive this country, and give us a chance to restore and help Israel.
