Shabbat Shalom to the Royal Family of Yehovah,
The last couple of weeks I have turned off the radio as more and more Christmas chorals are being played. I am sure many of you are the same. But I am sending out this note to make sure you did not miss the resounding thud that has taken place this past week, not once but twice.
The first loud thud came from Theresa May, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom who was tasked with drawing up the legal Divorce paper as the UK divorces the EU. This is known as the BREXIT deal.
It was August 1961, when the UK applied to join what was then called the European Economic Community. (EEC) But it was not until January 1973 when the UK was accepted into the EEC.
Then in June 2016, the UK voted on whether they should leave the EU or remain in the European Union. Those voting to leave won by 51.9% versus 48.1% that voted to remain. The referendum turnout was 71.8%, with more than 30 million people voting. This resulted in the current situation of Britain exiting the EU which has been turned into BREXIT.
All of this is to be completed by March 2019.
Last week we watch on the News as Theresa May went form EU leader to Eu Leader across Europe looking concession after learning her own government would not support her BREXIT Deal in a vote.
Theresa May has headed back to Europe in a desperate bid to win concessions from European Union leaders after her Commons retreat over her big Brexit vote.
Theresa May is to make an emergency dash to Brussels on Saturday to complete the Brexit negotiations after the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, threatened to pull the plug on the Sunday leaders’ summit.
As she emerged from talks in Brussels lasting nearly two hours with the European commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, the British prime minister admitted that there were some major issues to resolve.
Merkel had let it be known through her diplomats in Brussels that she was unwilling to negotiate with May on Sunday at the extraordinary Brexitsummit. She had demanded a finalised agreement to emerge in good time before the leaders’ meeting.
The development threatened to disrupt Downing Street’s plans for agreement among leaders this month in time for a meaningful vote in parliament in early December.
The Trumpet had this to say about these events.
An Imperial EU Wants to Squash Britain.” That was the title of my Trumpet Briefalmost a month ago. Now that’s clearer than ever. The European Union is trying to impose a one-sided Brexit deal on the United Kingdom. British Prime Minister Theresa May could not get the Brexit deal through Parliament, so last week she returned to Europe for help. It gave her none.
On Thursday, leaders of the 27 EU member states gathered for a private dinner, without Ms. May, to discuss her request. Here, wrote the Spectator, they “decided to pull the plug on cooperating with her, and instead removed supportive phrases from the draft conclusions of the summit so that it was clear that there was no longer a spirit of cooperation” (emphasis added).
There is “no longer a spirit of cooperation” between Britain and the EU. Instead, the EU is giving diktats and the UK is expected to obey.
“May hadn’t expected to return with everything improved and signed off,” it wrote. “But she had traveled to Brussels believing the summit would at least provide her with evidence that EU leaders were listening to the UK Parliament. This isn’t the first time May has been humiliated at such a meeting.”
She asked for help, and received humiliation.
Britain is under diplomatic assault from Europe. And from the mess here in the UK, it’s clear we’re losing.
I encourage you all to read the rest of this article and learn more about what is going on.
TICK TOCK Matis Resigns
Then this Thursday as I went to post the News Letter this week, I turned the news back on and heard that;
Defense Secretary James Mattis will resign at the end of February, he informed President Trump in a letter Thursday. The defense secretary said he is stepping down because of the differences in viewpoints with Mr. Trump.
“Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position,” Mattis wrote.
Mr. Trump announced the news in a tweet and praised Mattis’ tenure as secretary.
The Safety Switch, the calming voice in a chaotic White House has resigned. Stunned silence as I though on this. WOW!
Then on Friday morning, I read what Brent Nagtegaall had to say on this same subject and wanted to share it with you in case you have not heard.
It’s important that you are aware of the stunning decision just made by United States President Donald Trump.
On Wednesday, Mr. Trump announced that the Islamic State had been defeated and that all American troops in Syria would be coming home.
The announcement came as a shock to conservative media pundits and conservative political allies of Mr. Trump.
It also disappointed many people here in Israel, a nation that has a clear stake in ensuring things in Syria don’t spiral out of control.
The decision ignores the views of members in President Trump’s own security cabinet, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Foreign Policy Adviser John Bolton.
As recently as nine days ago, Trump’s special presidential envoy for the global coalition to counter the Islamic State told a press conference that the U.S. would remain in Syria even if the Islamic State was defeated. “Nobody is declaring a mission accomplished,” Bret McGurk said on December 11. “Defeating a physical caliphate is one phase of a much longer-term campaign …. Obviously, it would be reckless to say that the physical caliphate is defeated so that we can just leave now. I think anyone that has looked at a conflict like this would agree with that.”
Despite the fact that McGurk is President Trump’s point man on Syria, even he thought—quite publicly—that the plan was to stay in Syria. Not only because the Islamic State is not destroyed, but because leaving Syria will create a vacuum that will be filled by America’s enemies, such as Iran.
Nevertheless, President Trump is pulling out of Syria, and doing so immediately.
The reasons for his decision are not yet fully known, but it seems like the president made this decision entirely on his own, disregarding advice from his cabinet.
He also disregarded the pleading of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. According to Israel’s Channel 10, Mr. Netanyahu tried hard to change Mr. Trump’s mind, but to no avail.
While many in the United States may rejoice that American servicemen are coming home, the decision to leave Syria actually creates a terrifying new reality on the ground in Syria. This confirms the onset of America’s prophesied withdrawal from the Middle East.
Please read the article I posted today on theTrumpet.com explaining the situation and its prophetic implications.
The effects of Mr. Trump’s decision will reverberate out far from Syria.
Here is the rest of the article by Mr. Nagtegaall
Breaking with advisers and generals, President Trump decides to pull troops out of Syria. Is this the beginning of the end of American power in the Middle East?
nited States President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that all American forces will soon be withdrawn from Syria. In a video released on Twitter, Mr. Trump declared victory over the Islamic State and, as a result, has determined to withdraw the 2,000 troops currently inside Syrian territory.
“We have defeated isis in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump presidency,” Mr. Trump tweeted, which was quickly followed by the video.
According to U.S. officials, planning has already begun to pull out the troops as soon as possible, although a timetable has not been given.
While certain supporters of President Trump will be glad to bring American troops home, the seemingly snap decision by the president has provoked widespread criticism among conservative Middle East commentators who worry that a U.S. withdrawal will result in greater dominance of Syria by Iran and Russia.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said he was blindsided by the report and called the decision “a disaster in the making.” Sen. Marco Rubio, one of the most knowledgeable lawmakers on Iran, called it “a major blunder” and a “colossal mistake.” Rubio asserted that if the decision “isn’t reversed, it will haunt this administration and America for years to come.”
Longtime Middle East commentator Jonathan Schanzer wrote on Twitter, “With his decision on Syria, Trump has effectively handed Syria to Russia, Iran, Assad, Hezbollah and Turkey. Obama’s redline debacle was a dark day for American leadership in the Middle East. This is far worse.”
While the Islamic State’s defeat in Syria is debatable, the decision to “bring the boys home” also goes contrary to all previous comments by Trump administration officials, indicating that President Trump unilaterally made the decision himself.
As recently as nine days ago, the president’s own special envoy to the anti-Islamic State coalition told a press conference that the U.S. would remain in Syria after the defeat of the Islamic State. “I think it’s fair to say Americans will remain on the ground after the physical defeat of the caliphate until we have the pieces in place to ensure that that defeat is enduring,” Bret McGurk told reporters on December 11. “Nobody is declaring a mission accomplished. Defeating a physical caliphate is one phase of a much longer-term campaign.” He also said, “Obviously, it would [be] reckless to say that the physical caliphate is defeatedso that we can just leave now. I think anyone that has looked at a conflict like this would agree with that.”
Along with McGurk, National Security Adviser John Bolton said as late as September that the U.S. would maintain a military presence in Syria as long as Iran is there. “We’re not going to leave as long as Iranian troops are outside Iranian borders, and that includes Iranian proxies and militias.”
Given that it seems most of Mr. Trump’s advisers were against the move, and some didn’t even see it coming, it’s likely his decision is not part of a grand plan that involves Syria, or even the Middle East, but was rather made for some political reason. Regardless of Mr. Trump’s motivation, the withdrawal will have an immediate and long-lasting effect on the Middle East.
Only 2,000 Troops?
Criticism of Trump’s decision could be considered overblown, given that there are only 2,000 American troops in Syria to begin with. But an American ground presence in a battle zone, no matter the size of the contingent, is a stabilizing effect and a deterrent. This is undoubtedly true in the complicated Syrian war, especially for the Kurds in north Iraq, which is why many are viewing Trump’s decision as a betrayal of the Kurds.
American forces in Syria have sought to train and equip Kurdish forces in the fight against the Islamic State. The Kurds had proved themselves to be one of the most effective ground forces in the fight. However, American support of the Kurds has long upset Turkey, which is worried that a stronger Kurdish entity in Syria could destabilize the Kurdish population inside Turkey. Turkey’s own military mission inside Syria has been to ensure the Kurds do not become too powerful. American forces embedded with the Kurds have deterred Turkey, Iran and Russia from attacking.
Bloomberg View’s Eli Lake wrote that Trump’s decision could be seen as a capitulation to Turkey and an abandonment of a U.S. ally:
Capitulating now to Turkish demands would send a terrible message. [Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdo?an would conclude that threatening U.S. interests pays off. Meanwhile, other groups that have joined the American side in the Middle East would conclude the U.S. is an unreliable ally. It’s particularly galling to contemplate a withdrawal just as Kurdish forces are engaged in fierce fighting to liberate one of the last Islamic State holdouts, the town of Hanin.
That Turkey was factored into the Trump decision was further elucidated when the State Department announced late Tuesday that it had finally approved the sale of a $3.5 billion Patriot missile system to Turkey after significant delays.
Yet more than just an apparent capitulation to Turkey, the American withdrawal from Syria will benefit Iran.
Ceding Syria to Iran
Along with the training mission of the Kurds, the United States currently occupies a base in an extremely important strategic location on the Syria-Iraq border. The Al-Tanf base is a launching pad for many missions against the Islamic State, but it also serves a more important function as a roadblock that prevents Iran from controlling a highway for hauling illicit arms to the Syrian regime and Hezbollah through Iraq.
As we reported in the November-December issue of the Trumpet, Iran desires to control the vast swath of land from Iran, across Iraq, Syria and into Lebanon. Completing this “Shia Cresent,” as it has been called, is one of the major reasons for Iran’s involvement in Syria’s civil war.
Up until Trump’s withdrawal announcement, preventing Iran from controlling this Shia Crescent seemed to be one of the main post-Syrian war strategic objectives for the U.S. While the stated objective of the Al-Tanf base was to be a staging ground for strikes against the Islamic State, it also acted as an important buffer between Iranian forces in Syria and Iraq.
Notice what Gen. Joseph Votel, commander of U.S. Central Command, said during a visit to the base on October 22:
… [W]e don’t have a counter Iranian mission here. We have a defeat [the Islamic State] mission. But I do recognize that our presence, our developments of partners and relationships down here does have an indirect effect on some malign activities that Iranand their various proxies and surrogates would like to pursue down here.
With Trump’s withdrawal and the subsequent removal of the Al-Tanf military base, Iran will have largely achieved its objective to control the roadway from Iran to Lebanon. As Tony Badran wrote in usa Today on Wednesday, “Already, Iranian-led Shiite militias are operating at the edges of the U.S. zone and could move in swiftly and connect the Iraqi and Syrian terrains. This would provide Iran with overland routes to deliver advanced weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon, while building up offensive capabilities in Syria, including in the south, along the country’s border with Israel.”
Break Between Trump and Israel
To most with knowledge on the subject, this is a severe strategic blunder, the effect of which will be felt mostly by Israel.
A U.S. withdrawal “would mean that the Assad forces and the Iranians will have full control over Syria, and this would mean that they may try to deliver weapons from Iran through Iraq to Syria and then to Lebanon. And there’s not going to be anything in between to stop them,” Brig. Gen. Yossi Kuperwasser (Ret.), a former director of Israel’s Strategic Affairs Ministry, told the Times of Israel on Wednesday. He continued, “Especially the Iranians are going to be empowered and feel much stronger.”
According to Israel’s Channel 10, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was deeply disappointed by the announcement and tried hard to convince Mr. Trump to reconsider the move. But the U.S. president reportedly refused to reconsider.
Publicly, Mr. Netanyahu’s comments were more muted. He released a statement saying, “I spoke with U.S. President Donald Trump [on Monday] and yesterday with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who told me that it was the president’s intention to withdraw their forces from Syria and made it clear that they had other ways to express their influence in the arena. This is, of course, America’s decision ….”
Nevertheless, Mr. Trump’s decision to pull out of Syria is seen by some in Israel as a major setback in a largely positive relationship between Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Trump.
As Raphael Ahren wrote on Wednesday, “Ending the American presence in Syria, leaving Israel alone to deal with Iran, Hezbollah and Russia, thus marks the first major setback in the hitherto harmonious U.S.-Israel relationship.”
What Does Bible Prophecy Say?
The Trumpet has frequently written about the prophetic implications of the Syrian civil war.
Mostly we discuss how Bible prophecy indicates that Iran will eventually lose its position of power in Syria and be replaced by a resurgent and dominant German-led Europe. Indeed it is important to now watch for Europe’s reaction to an American withdrawal. Considering the Europeans’ continued vulnerability to refugees from war-trodden Syria, and its growing understanding of the danger posed by Iranian hegemony in the Middle East, they might want to replace the United States at the Al-Tanf base.
However, there is a more powerful prophetic trend at play here. In fact, it is this prophetic trend that actually provides the environment for all other prophecies in the Middle East to even take place.
That prophecy: the complete withdrawal of American power from the entire Middle East.
The U.S. is currently experiencing a prophesied temporary resurgence under the leadership of President Trump. (For more on this, please read Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry’s article “Saving America From the Radical Left—Temporarily.”) However, this brief period of resurgence will swiftly give way to a stunning collapse.
Far from maintaining its superpower status throughout the Trump presidency, the Bible actually shows that the U.S. will withdraw from the world scene to deal with increasingly worrying domestic problems.
Hosea 5:13 states, “When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.”
Explaining this verse in his booklet Jerusalem in Prophecy, Mr. Flurry writes, “The Hebrew clearly indicates that both Israel and Britain go to Germany for help. Both Judah and Britain are in danger of falling. By this point, America will be too weak and too sick itself to help.”
Naturally, if Israel was in trouble, it would reach out to its ally the U.S. However, this prophecy shows that America will be too preoccupied with its own problems to help Israel. By this time, Israel would have been let down so much by the U.S., that it has no choice but to go to a historic enemy for help: Assyria (modern-day Germany).
Mr. Trump’s withdrawal from Syria, even while his greatest ally Israel is threatened by Iran, sets a powerful prophetic precedent of American withdrawal not only from the Middle East, but also from the world.
Many in the world, and even in the U.S., will rejoice that President Trump is bringing troops home. But the decision presages more American retreat from the world stage. As these prophecies are being fulfilled, it’s important to take time to study about where events are leading. To get a clear picture of the United States’ role in end-time events, please read Gerald Flurry’s free booklet Great Again.
Since October we have been hearing how the Dow Jones is crashing with huge losses in a single day. On Oct 2, the Dow closed at 26,773.94, breaking its previous all-time high closing of 26,656.98, which was set on Sep 21, 2018. During the day’s trading, the index reached its all-time high level of 26,824.78 exceeding its previous high of 26,769.15 recorded on Sep 21. Today December 21, 2018, it closed at 22,396.34.
This is fall of 4,428.44 points in just 12 weeks.
Perhaps Johnathan Cohn is going to come out with another Shemitah Year stock Market Crash for the year of 2019.
TICK TOCK Time is Running Out
Why is all of this so exciting?
We read in Daniel 8:2
And I saw in the vision, and I was at the Ulai canal. I raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram standing on the bank of the canal. It had two horns, and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward. No beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.
The word charging in Hebrew is the word
H5055 nâgach naw-gakh’
A primitive root; to but with the horns; figuratively to war against: – gore, push (down, -ing).
This Ram was waring with the west and the south and the north. West of Iran today is Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon controlled by Hezbollah and directed by Iran. These are all proxy armies in each of these nations put in place by Iran and subsidized by Iran and told what to do by Iran, after being at war in each one of these nations. To the South they are waring with Saudi Arabia using the Houthi people in Yemen and have fired ballistic missiles into Saudi Arabia. This same Ram has been supporting the Hamas Terrorist group in Gaza and the West Bank. They also have connections with The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
There is no need for me to explain what this vision is as Gabriel The Arch Angel was sent by Yehovah to explain to Daniel what it meant. Here is what he said.
:15 When I, Daniel, had seen the vision, I sought to understand it. And behold, there stood before me one having the appearance of a man. And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of the Ulai, and it called, “Gabriel, make this man understand the vision.” So he came near where I stood. And when he came, I was frightened and fell on my face. But he said to me, “Understand, O son of man, that the vision is for the time of the end.”
And when he had spoken to me, I fell into a deep sleep with my face to the ground. But he touched me and made me stand up. He said, “Behold, I will make known to you what shall be at the latter end of the indignation, for it refers to the appointed time of the end. As for the ram that you saw with the two horns, these are the kings of Media and Persia.
Going back to Daniel 8:5 we are told about a Goat coming on the scene who destroys the Ram Iran is destroyed by this Goat.
As I was considering, behold, a male goat came from the west across the face of the whole earth, without touching the ground. And the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came to the ram with the two horns, which I had seen standing on the bank of the canal, and he ran at him in his powerful wrath. I saw him come close to the ram, and he was enraged against him and struck the ram and broke his two horns. And the ram had no power to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled on him. And there was no one who could rescue the ram from his power.
Again Gabriel explains who this Goat is in verse 21
And the goat is the king of Greece. And the great horn between his eyes is the first king.
This Goat is the EU. Something is going to set it off and cause it to come down on Iran in great fury and rage. And this is the very point we are at right now. We are about to see Iran do something to the EU and infuriate them so that utterly destroy the Iranian nation. I will let you read the rest of Daniel 8 as this is the place where 4 horns come up out the one large one that is broken and then leads to the Anti Christ.
:8 Then the goat became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.
Out of one of them came a little horn, which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land. It grew great, even to the host of heaven. And some of the host and some of the stars it threw down to the ground and trampled on them. It became great, even as great as the Prince of the host. And the regular burnt offering was taken away from him, and the place of his sanctuary was overthrown. And a host will be given over to it together with the regular burnt offering because of transgression, and it will throw truth to the ground, and it will act and prosper. Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to the one who spoke, “For how long is the vision concerning the regular burnt offering, the transgression that makes desolate, and the giving over of the sanctuary and host to be trampled underfoot?” And he said to me, “For 2,300 evenings and mornings. Then the sanctuary shall be restored to its rightful state.”
:22 As for the horn that was broken, in place of which four others arose, four kingdoms shall arise from his nation, but not with his power. And at the latter end of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their limit, a king of bold face, one who understands riddles, shall arise. His power shall be great—but not by his own power; and he shall cause fearful destruction and shall succeed in what he does, and destroy mighty men and the people who are the saints. By his cunning he shall make deceit prosper under his hand, and in his own mind he shall become great. Without warning he shall destroy many. And he shall even rise up against the Prince of princes, and he shall be broken—but by no human hand. The vision of the evenings and the mornings that has been told is true, but seal up the vision, for it refers to many days from now.”
This Week The President of the USA stated he was withdrawing the 2000 troops that stand in Iran’s way of exploiting Iraq and Syria with their troops in order to close in on Israel. General Matis has stepped down because his counsel was not being taken anymore by the President who seems to be acting unilaterally against all other advisors.
A friend called me Erev Shabbat and suggested that President Trump was clearing them out of harms way so that Israel could attack Iran. Interesting thought but that is not what the prophecy is telling us.
Daniel 11 tells us again about this King of the North attacking and overwhelming the King of the South and how the Holy Land and Jordan would fair in that attack.
Dan 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. 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. He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. He shall become ruler of the treasures of gold and of silver, and all the precious things of Egypt, and the Libyans and the Cushites shall follow in his train.
The King of the North is the EU Nation. And Without warning he shall destroy many.
We are at this point in our Jubilee cycle. We are about to begin 2019. March 2019 BREXIT is to be finalized and it is looking like it is going to be a HARD BREXIT Deal which is not good for the UK. General Matis’s resignation takes effect February. Ab? Bakr al-Baghdadi the head of ISIS and the Caliphate has not yet been killed or found and captured and the USA is going to now pull out and leave this void geopolitically in this area. ISIS could rise back up or Iran could step in and take over the region. And the economy is taking it in the chin as trade wars with China escalate with the arrest of the head of Huawei CFO, Meng Wanzhou, detained in Canada on U.S. extradition charges. China has in retaliation arrested 3 Canadians and is subjecting them to extreme confinement.
At Sightedmoon.com we have now since 2005 been telling you we are in the middle of the 70th Jubilee cycle since the command given by Yehovah to Moses to go and get His people. In that 70th Jubilee cycle in the midst of it Israel, all 12 tribes would be cut off and be as if they never were.
Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and understand that from the going out of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again with squares and moat, but in a troubled time. And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed.
In Lev 26 we are given the curses for not keeping the commandments of Yehovah. The first curse is Terror which we have come to understand is the first Sabbatical cycle from 1996 to 2002. The second curse is Extreme weather, droughts, flood, Hurricanes Typhoons and Tornadoes, each worse than the ones that came before them. 3rd Curse was pestilence. And in each of these Sabbatical Cycles, the headlines from around the world have featured each of these curses.
We are now in the 4th Sabbatical cycle which I have coloured in black. The 4th curse in Lev 26 is the curse of war.
Lev 26:23 And if by this discipline you are not turned to me but walk contrary to me, then I also will walk contrary to you, and I myself will strike you sevenfold for your sins. And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall execute vengeance for the covenant. And if you gather within your cities, I will send pestilence among you, and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. When I break your supply of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in a single oven and shall dole out your bread again by weight, and you shall eat and not be satisfied.
We are about to begin the year 2019 which as you can see is the 3rd year of the 4th Sabbatical cycle.
We at Sightedmoon.com have also been teaching you about the 7 years of plenty and the 7 years of famine that the story of Joseph talks about. The following chart is when each of those 7 years took place in Joseph’s time.
The 7 years of plenty began in the year 1607 BC and went until 1601 BC. Then the 7 years of famine took place and they started in 1600 BC and went until 1594 BC.
When we compare each Jubilee cycle with our own Jubilee cycle today prophecies are revealed.
The start of the 7 years of plenty was for Egypt in Josephs day. Today Egypt is represented by the European Union. The EU. They will have 7 years of plenty as they rape the rest of the world through war against the King of the South and the 12 tribes of Israel. They will destroy many without warning.
The 7 years of famine start at the same time the Two Witnesses cause it not to rain on the earth for 3 1/2 years and then they are killed by the Beast. That is the EU. And then we have the Great Tribulation for the next 3 1/2 years upon the whole earth in which Babylon, who is The Beast, who is The EU is destroyed and Satan is locked away.
There is one more thing to take note of.
Gen 40:1 Some time after this, the cupbearer of the king of Egypt and his baker committed an offense against their lord the king of Egypt. And Pharaoh was angry with his two officers, the chief cupbearer and the chief baker, and he put them in custody in the house of the captain of the guard, in the prison where Joseph was confined. The captain of the guard appointed Joseph to be with them, and he attended them. They continued for some time in custody.
And one night they both dreamed—the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were confined in the prison—each his own dream, and each dream with its own interpretation. When Joseph came to them in the morning, he saw that they were troubled. So he asked Pharaoh’s officers who were with him in custody in his master’s house, “Why are your faces downcast today?” They said to him, “We have had dreams, and there is no one to interpret them.” And Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Please tell them to me.”
So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph and said to him, “In my dream there was a vine before me, and on the vine there were three branches. As soon as it budded, its blossoms shot forth, and the clusters ripened into grapes. Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes and pressed them into Pharaoh’s cup and placed the cup in Pharaoh’s hand.” Then Joseph said to him, “This is its interpretation: the three branches are three days. In three days Pharaoh will lift up your head and restore you to your office, and you shall place Pharaoh’s cup in his hand as formerly, when you were his cupbearer. Only remember me, when it is well with you, and please do me the kindness to mention me to Pharaoh, and so get me out of this house. For I was indeed stolen out of the land of the Hebrews, and here also I have done nothing that they should put me into the pit.”
When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was favorable, he said to Joseph, “I also had a dream: there were three cake baskets on my head, and in the uppermost basket there were all sorts of baked food for Pharaoh, but the birds were eating it out of the basket on my head.” And Joseph answered and said, “This is its interpretation: the three baskets are three days. In three days Pharaoh will lift up your head—from you!—and hang you on a tree. And the birds will eat the flesh from you.”
On the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, he made a feast for all his servants and lifted up the head of the chief cupbearer and the head of the chief baker among his servants. He restored the chief cupbearer to his position, and he placed the cup in Pharaoh’s hand. But he hanged the chief baker, as Joseph had interpreted to them. Yet the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.
The Cupbearer is the Catholic faith and the Pope.
Rev 17:1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk.” And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth’s abominations.” And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.
