Jesus indicated that one (of many) signs of the end times or the end of the age grace would be that love for one another would grow cold. Matthew 24:12, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” This can also be interpreted that lawlessness will abound. This includes violence, murder, terrorism, shootings, abortion, sexual attacks, knife attacks, car/van attacks, chemical attacks and other similar acts of destructive and evil behavior. Yes, these things have occurred in time past. But consider the frequency, intensity and devastation of these types of attacks and mass school shootings. They are like birth pangs in frequency and intensity. This is just one part of the CONVERGENCE or CONVERGING of signs.
Psalm 25:19. Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
Psalm 38:19. But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
Psalm 41:7. All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt.
Psalm 69:4. They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.
Psalm 69:14. Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
Matthew 10:22. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Mark 13:13. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Luke 6:22. Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
Luke 21:17. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.
John 7:7. The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
John 15:18. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
John 15:23. He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matt. 24:9-14).
Five (5) verses of satanic influence over the Beast / Antichrist who martyrs the Christian Saints, during the coming seven (7) year Tribulation and Great Tribulation:
Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
Revelation 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
Revelation 17:6 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 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
Christian Persecution and Martyrdom, ‘The End of the Age of Grace’; BUTCHERED IN AN “ATROCIOUS WAY”: MUSLIM PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS. Islam; the ‘peaceful religion’ and ‘those who worship the dragon (Allah) and SOON the BEAST.’ The TRUE GOD … Father and Son and Holy Spirit HAS NEVER REFERRED TO HIMSELF AS ‘ALLAH.’ ALLAH IS ANOTHER ‘RELIGIOUS’ NAME FOR SATAN. Allah is the ‘god’ of this world and the ‘Prince of the Air’, but not THE GOD of the Universe (Father, Son and Holy Spirit.).
BY RAYMOND IBRAHIM | DEC 3, 2020 Israel365.news
The following are among the abuses Muslims inflicted on Christians throughout the month of October, 2020:
Slaughtered Christians and Terrorized Churches
France: On October 29, a Muslim man wielding a knife entered the Notre Dame Cathedral of Nice and, while shouting “Allahu Akbar [Allah is greater],” beheaded a Christian woman and stabbed two others to death. According to one report:
Married Nadine Devillers, 60, was the first person attacked by Tunisian knifeman Brahim Aoussaoui, 21, who slit her throat near the baptismal font. After he tried to decapitate Devillers [other reports state the beheading was complete], Aoussaoui hacked 54-year-old sacristan Vincent Loques to death as he prepared for the first Mass of the day. Brazilian-born Simone Barreto Silva, 44, was then stabbed multiple times but managed to escape the church, running to a nearby burger bar where she succumbed to her injuries. The mother-of-three’s last words to paramedics were: ‘Tell my children that I love them’. On arrival, French police shot Aoussaoui 14 times as he screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’ … a phrase he kept shouting even after being sedated and put into an ambulance.
According to an interview with his mother, the 21-year-old murderer had “start[ed] praying and taking his religion more seriously a few months ago.” A Koran and several extra knives were found in his possession after the attack.
Hours after the attack, police shot and killed another man, who was also shouting “Allahu Akbar,” while threatening passers-by with a handgun in Montfavet. And two weeks earlier in Paris, an 18-year-old Muslim beheaded a teacher, Samuel Paty, for showing a cartoon of Muhammad as part of a discussion of free speech and expression in class.
Discussing the recent church attack, Nice’s mayor, Christian Estrosi, said “Enough is enough. It’s time now for France to exonerate itself from the laws of peace in order to definitively wipe out Islamo-fascism from our territory.” France’s Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said that France was “at war with Islamist extremism… an enemy that is both internal and external.”
Democratic Republic of Congo: On October 28, Islamic militants raided a village where they slaughtered at least 18 (6+6+6) people “in an atrocious way,” and torched their church to the ground. “It really creates pain in our hearts, a total panic in the village,” said a local official. “We don’t know if tomorrow the ADF will come back here again.” ADF is an acronym for the Allied Democratic Forces, “an Islamist militant group” which has been terrorizing the Christian majority nation and slaughtering Christians for more than two decades.
Armenia: Armenian churches that have come under Azerbaijani control have been desecrated—despite promises from the authorities to protect them. In one instance, a soldier—unclear whether an Azeri or a jihadi mercenary from Syria or Iraq—was videotaped standing atop a church chapel, where the cross had been apparently broken off, and triumphantly shouting “Allahu Akbar!”
Days earlier, on October 8, the Azerbaijani forces shelled and destroyed Holy Savior, an iconic Armenian cathedral which was “consecrated in 1888 but was damaged during the March 1920 massacre of Armenians of the city by Azerbaijanis and experienced a decades-long decline.”
Syria: An unknown person hurled a grenade at an Armenian church in Hasakh; two people were injured. No group claimed the attack. Arguing that “Armenians have always been targeted in the region,” the report elaborates:
In November of 2019, Armenian priest Hanna Ibrahim, and his father Ibrahim Hanna Bido were shot and killed by sleeper-cells on their way from Hasakah to Deir al-Zor in order to restore the Armenian memorial church in Deir al-Zor… This is a clear example of extremists groups specifically targeting religious Armenian figures and sites. That being said, the recent conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan is likely to give added fuel to the fire when it comes to persecution of Armenians. Especially when you consider the claims that Turkish-backed Syrian rebel groups are being sent to Azerbaijan.
Austria: On October 29, a Muslim mob consisting of some 50 (5) people entered and rioted inside a church in Vienna while screaming “Allahu Akbar.” Police acted fast and managed to disperse the crowd—much of which had gathered around the baptismal font and confessionals—and make some arrests. Discussing this incident, Integration Minister Susanne Raab remarked: “Parallel societies are the breeding ground for violence. We have to fight every form of extremism and Islamism right from the start in order to prevent it from getting worse. It is good that the police intervened….”
Two days later, on October 31, another Muslim man, a 25-year-old Afghan, stormed into St. Stephen’s Cathedral where he started to cry out “Islamist slogans.”
Italy: A “half naked,” 25-year-old Muslim man of North African origin broke into and terrorized a convent for nuns. According to the October 3 report, the man shouted “Allahu Akbar” several times while breaking down the front door of the Heart of Jesus Convent in the historic center of Mazara del Vallo. On entering, he turned the rooms where the nuns live “upside down” and hurled some of their property outside a window. Luckily, the nuns were not in their rooms but rather eating in the refectory; they eventually fled and hid outside the building. Due to all the “bustle and screams,” an Italian living near the convent alerted police, who arrested the Muslim as he tried to flee the scene. The same report states that a few weeks earlier, another North African migrant created fear and panic by screaming Allahu Akbar and pretending to be armed in the streets of Ferrara, Italy.
Mali: After spending nearly five (5) years in captivity of an Islamic group, and after rejecting invitations to embrace Islam, Beatrice Stöckli, a Swiss missionary who had been evangelizing in Mali and assisting mostly women and children since 2000, was executed. Another French charity worker who was also abducted in 2016, converted to Islam during her captivity, and was released on October 8 shared this information. A later report offers more details:
[Stöckli] was killed … by members of the Islamist terrorist organisation Jama’at Nasr al-Islam wal Muslim (JNIM). An affiliate of al-Qaeda in Mali and West Africa, JNIM has been responsible for numerous attacks on Christians and Westerners since its formation in March 2017. Beatrice Stöckli was kidnapped by armed men from her home in Timbuktu in northern Mali in January 2016. She had been previously abducted in April 2012 and endured nine days of torture and threats at the hands of jihadist group, Ansar al-Dine, before she was freed. On her release, she decided to return to Timbuktu to continue her missionary work.
Armenia/Azerbaijan/Turkey: Although the region of Nagorno-Karabakh is ethnically Armenian, it was allotted to Azerbaijan after the dissolution of the USSR, causing problems since and culminating in open war throughout October. Several reports and testimonials, including by an independent French journalist, confirmed that Turkey was funneling jihadi groups that had been operating in Syria and Libya—including the pro-Muslim Brotherhood Hamza Division, which kept naked, sex slave women in prison—to this latest theater of conflict. Discussing why Turkey was so heavily involved, Nikol Pashinyan, Armenia’s prime minister, said Turkey had returned “to continue the Armenian Genocide.”
Anti-infidel rhetoric and logic also motivated the mercenaries funneled into the theater of war by Turkey. A captured one confessed that he was “promised a monthly 2000 dollar payment for fighting against ‘kafirs’ in Artsakh, and an extra 100 dollar for each beheaded “kafir.” (Kafir, often translated as “infidel,” is Arabic for non-Muslims who fail to submit to Islamic authority, which makes them enemies by default.)
Attacks on Converts to Christianity
It is illegal for Muslim Iranians to drink alcohol, but exceptions are made for recognised religious minorities, including Christians. However, Iran does not recognise converts as Christians. This lack of recognition is also the reason Youhan spent the last two years in prison and is now living in internal exile—because of his membership of a house-church, which is the only available Christian fellowship for converts in Iran.
This is not the first time Youhan was whipped. He first received 80 lashes, alongside another convert, in 2013 and for the same reason: sipping wine during communion.
Somaliland: During an October 5 press conference, a Somaliland police colonel announced that a husband and wife had been arrested for being “apostates and evangelists spreading Christianity.” Police reportedly entered the couple’s house after being alerted by “suspicious activities.” On finding Christian materials inside their home, police apprehended and hauled away the couple, who have three children. During the same conference, the police colonel reiterated that “whoever dares to spread Christianity in this region, should be fully aware that they won’t escape the hand of the law enforcement officers and that the spread of Christianity will not be allowed and is considered blasphemy.” He further encouraged citizens to report on those they suspect of being Christian.
Somalia: On October 9, Muslim youths mauled and hospitalized the 7-year-old child of a Christian convert. “My son was attacked by three boys who beat him and injured his private parts,” the father, whose name is withheld, explained: “He suffered a swollen and injured face as well as an injured left hand from a knife. My son lost a lot of blood and was rushed by one of the secret believers to a nearby dispensary in Dhobley.” After explaining how his son, who spent three days hospitalized, “is still suffering the effects of the attack and needs specialized medication,” the father discussed how he and his family, which includes five children, have been on the run since 2012, when “Muslims [first] discovered my new faith in Christ.” Early on, his wife also converted and, when her Muslim father learned of it, “He was so furious he forcefully entered into my room and destroyed some of my belongings, beddings and utensils. Then he turned to my wife and began slapping her and beat her with a stick, which led to a miscarriage of a 6-month fetus.” The Muslim father seized his daughter, along with her husband’s possessions, and went to a distant location. Years later, after the convert and his wife, who had remained Christian, were reunited, in November 2018, “my father-in-law and other Muslims organized to kill me while I was coming from the market. Three men stopped me and started beating me with sticks and blows. I became unconscious.” In July 2019 his father-in-law again “entered my house and started quarreling and uttering abusive words and immediately began slapping her [his wife] in front of me, and then he took her away the second time and locked her in his house while she was eight months pregnant.” The husband reported the abduction and police eventually recovered his wife. “After three days, she gave birth. My father-in-law was locked down in the jail cell [in Kenya]. The Muslims threatened to kill me, so I requested the police to release him, which they did.” The family has since been still on the run:
It is not possible to get justice in this part of Somalia where almost everyone is a Muslim. We are being hunted down like wild animals because of putting our faith in Issa [Jesus]. Always our security is at stake. We need prayers and financial support for the treatment of my son.
General Hate for and Abuse of Christian Minorities
Pakistan: On October 13, Ali Azhar, 45, kidnapped, forcibly converted to Islam, and “married” Arzoo Raja, a 13-year-old Christian girl. On that same day her parents registered a kidnapping case with local police. Two days later, on October 15, “we were summoned to the station,” explained her father Raja Lal, “where we were shown documents which claimed that Arzoo was 18 and had willingly converted to Islam after marrying Ali Azhar.” Despite the fact that the National Database and Registration Authority records Arzo as being born on July 31, 2007 and is therefore 13-years-old, and despite the fact that sexual intercourse with girls under 16 is statutory rape and carries a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison in Pakistan, on October 27, the High Court of Sindh ruled in favor of the kidnapper/husband by relying on a Sharia stipulation that abrogates all the rules for those who convert to Islam. According to the court order,
The petitioner [the 13-year-old] initially belonged to the Christian religion. However, after the passage of time, the petitioner understood and realized that Islam is a universal religion and she asked her parents and other family members to embrace Islam but they flatly refused. Subsequently she accepted the religion of Islam before the religious person of Madressah Jamia Islamia. After embracing Islam, her new name is Arzoo Faatima; per learned counsel, petitioner contracted her marriage to Azhar of her own free will and accord without duress and fear.
On hearing this decision, Rita Masih, the girl’s mother—who was apparently banned from entering the courthouse and who, with her husband, had fallen at and “even touched the feet of police to meet their daughter”— cried for her daughter with open arms outside the courthouse: “Arzoo, come to your mama. He will kill you.” She eventually fainted on the concrete. Earlier, when the girl saw and tried to go to her mother, her Muslim abductor/husband snatched and took her into the courtroom. Discussing this matter, Samson Salamat, the Christian chairman of an interreligious organization, explained how he was “distressed and disappointed with the position taken by the honorable court”:
I am distressed and disappointed with the position taken by the honorable court. A sexual act with a minor is felony even if she is willing. The court has validated a rape despite the Sindh Child Marriage Restraint Act 2014 that punishes contractors of child marriage with up to three years’ imprisonment. Can a judge, an army officer or a Pakistani politician tolerate handing over their minor daughter to a middle-aged man? What is the future of minority girls in Pakistan? Our courts favor the powerful. We still don’t have strong calls from a joint minority platform on forced conversions.
This is the second forced conversion/marriage of an underage Christian girl in Karachi alone. In order to justify marriage to Huma Younus—a 14-year-old Christian girl who was also abducted, forced to convert to Islam, and wed to a Muslim man— on February 3, 2020 the Sindh high court in Karachi ruled that men may marry underage girls once they have their period, in direct compliance with Sharia, but against Karachi’s own laws. “Our daughters are insecure and abused in this country,” Huma’s mother later remarked. “They are not safe anywhere. We leave them at schools or home but they are kidnapped, raped, humiliated, and forced to convert to Islam.”
Similarly, in August 2020, Maira Shahbaz, a 14-year-old Christian girl, escaped from the home of Mohamad Nakash—her kidnapper, whom the Lahore High Court had recently ruled is her legitimate husband despite her and her family’s objections. She fled to a police station, where she gave testimony, including on how she was being “forced into prostitution” and “filmed while by being raped,” with threats that the tape would be published unless she complies with the demands of her rapist/husband and friends. “They threatened to murder my whole family,” the girl said. “My life was at stake in the hands of the accused and Nakash repeatedly raped me forcefully.” She and her family are currently in hiding.
In a separate incident of “religious hatred” in Pakistan, a Muslim man and his son beat and humiliated a Christian woman in public for arguing with him. On October 12, Balqees Bibi, the Christian woman, called out in public to a relative—whose name is distinctly Christian—thereby angering Muhammad Abass Butt. “Abbas was [always] full of religious hatred against my mother,” her son explained. “He often expressed his anger against Christians in the street, but everyone ignored him to avoid disputes.” On that day, “Abbas started abusing my mother saying, ‘Oh choori! Shut your mouth!’ When she argued with him, he slapped her and dragged her into the street.” The report adds that
Abbas was angry that Bibi, a person he considered socially lower than him due to her religious identity, had argued with him in public. As Abbas beat Bibi, he also used an extremely derogatory slur for Christians which labels them as untouchables. After the attack, Bibi and her family registered a police complaint against Abbas (FIR # 372/20). However, there [sic] police have yet to arrest Abbas or his son who reportedly joined his father in beating Bibi.
Egypt: On October 3, Magda Mansur Ibrahim, a 20-year-old Christian, disappeared while traveling to her college. Three days after her parents contacted and pressured police and local officials to act, a video of the missing girl appeared on October 6. In it she claimed that she had secretly converted to Islam six years ago and had now married a Muslim man and therefore wished to be left alone. In an interview, however, her father said he was convinced that the video was made under duress. He also asked if it was reasonable to believe that a 14-year-old girl could be theologically attuned enough to secretly convert to and clandestinely practice Islam for six years within a Christian household. Moreover, “How am I to believe,” the girl’s father inquired, “this video when Rania ‘Abd al-Masih and the Alexandrian girl [Christine Zarif] both previously published similar videos and in the end they returned and we learned that they had acted under pressure?” (This is a reference to two other Christian women in Egypt who, after disappearing, also reappeared on videos as eager converts to Islam, only for the truth—that the videos were made under duress—to come out later.) The father then made an impassioned plea:
As an Egyptian, I have rights—including the right to see my daughter and sit with her and make sure she is okay. If she wishes to follow another path [Islam], that is her right, but my right is to see her …. I therefore ask State Security, the Minister of Interior and President Sisi to look into [the plight of] my daughter because I know that she is not safe and is under pressure. I will never forfeit my daughter …. She is not some “chicken” I can forget about; she is my flesh and blood…. I am poor and at death’s door [literally, “God’s door”], but … even if they were to publish a million such videos, it is my right to see her. As for the video, I am a father and know well how my daughter talks, and she [appeared] terrified and her face changed. As the very least reflection of my rights as a citizen, State Security should move and investigate [the whereabouts] of my daughter. Is it that hard for the Egyptian police to return the girl?
A few days later, Magda was reported as having been returned to her family. However, and as with the case of Ranya ‘Abd al-Masih, the 20-year-old’s return seems to be conditional on the family not asking questions, speaking to the press, pressing charges, or even knowing the responsible parties.
In a separate incident in Egypt, on October 5, Muslim mobs attacked Christian homes and beat their inhabitants in the village of Dabous in Samalout. “The cause of the story,” explained Mina, a Christian resident, occurred two days earlier, when “two Muslim men who don’t belong to our village beat a young Coptic kid [aged 10]. The Coptic men didn’t accept that,” and a fight erupted: Muslims—and their dignity—were injured. Two days later, “retaliatory” attacks began with one Muslim man striking a Christian father and his son with a hose while they were traveling on motorbike; they fell and were injured. By the end of that day, on October 5, “all of the Muslims gathered to beat the Copts,” said Mina. “They damaged the windows and doors, and injured around five or six persons.” Another local Christian man described the incident:
The attack started with a Muslim woman screaming. The extremists attacked the Copts’ houses, [even though] there were security bodies whose job it is to protect the church. They did not call the police, but the Copts did. Then the police came, and the extremists escaped to the farms and grass.
While discussing how a car belonging to a Christian man was destroyed, Mina said that village Muslims had promised to make amends, and that “my father has gone to the police station to follow the situation, but I will stay home. They are treacherous and traitorous.”

About this Series
The persecution of Christians in the Islamic world has become endemic. Accordingly, “Muslim Persecution of Christians” was developed in 2011 to collate some—by no means all—of the instances of persecution that occur or are reported each month. It serves two purposes:
1) To document that which the mainstream media does not: the habitual, if not chronic, persecution of Christians.
2) To show that such persecution is not “random,” but systematic and interrelated—that it is rooted in a worldview inspired by Islamic Sharia.
Accordingly, whatever the anecdote of persecution, it typically fits under a specific theme, including hatred for churches and other Christian symbols; apostasy, blasphemy, and proselytism laws that criminalize and sometimes punish with death those who “offend” Islam; sexual abuse of Christian women; forced conversions to Islam; theft and plunder in lieu of jizya (financial tribute expected from non-Muslims); overall expectations for Christians to behave like cowed dhimmis, or second-class, “tolerated” citizens; and simple violence and murder. Sometimes it is a combination thereof.
Because these accounts of persecution span different ethnicities, languages, and locales—from Morocco in the West, to Indonesia in the East—it should be clear that one thing alone binds them: Islam—whether the strict application of Islamic Sharia law, or the supremacist culture born of it.
Night Watchman Note; ‘THE GRAND DADDY SIGN’. That is what ‘watchmen or women’ do. Jesus made clear that when He actually does come for His disciples, His wise and faithful servants would be aware of the time because they would be watching. They would know the season of the times by WATCHING those things ‘coming to pass or occurring’ as Jesus said they would. The ‘BENCHMARK SIGN(s)’ always point towards Israel / Jacob. God’s prophetic timepiece. The FALSE PEACE COVENANT confirmed by the Prince/Beast among MENA (the many) is the ‘key sign’ of the times or the season of the times. Yes, we are in that period. The Prince/Beast will likely confirm and enhance the current ‘normalization’ agreement with Jacob to be a ‘peace’ agreement, to be extended to 7 years from the current 5 years, to include some agreement permitting the rebuilding of the third temple in exchange for ‘some portion of Jerusalem.’ The current ‘investment’ period for the Palestinians stands at five (5) years. This will likely occur AFTER the Bride, Disciples or True Church is removed from the earth via the Rapture / Harpazo / Redemption / ‘Twinkling’.
Confirmation for Seven (7) Years
Daniel 9:26-27 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
‘Current Plan’ (Satan’s Plan = Five (5) years financial investment period for 180 (6+6+6) ‘infrastructure projects’ costing $50 (5) Billion to cut poverty by 50% (5)).
U.S. President Donald Trump’s “Peace to Prosperity” plan, which he unveiled at the White House on Jan. 28, 2020, calls for Israel to retain 30 percent of the West Bank (territory that the parties to the conflict had already agreed would remain under Israeli control, in accordance with the 1995 Oslo Accords), with the remaining 70 percent reserved for an eventual Palestinian state. The plan states that there would be a freeze on Israeli settlement-building in that area for four years—and land swaps to provide the Palestinian state with land comparable in size to the territory of pre-1967 West Bank and Gaza, and a capital in eastern Jerusalem.
It includes a $50 billion investment fund for 179 infrastructure and business projects in that state, designed to create more than one million jobs, cut the poverty rate by 50 percent and reduce unemployment from 31 percent to a single digit.
US President Donald Trump has predicted that Saudi Arabia will be among up to 10 further countries preparing to ‘normalize’ their relations with Israel.
The meaning was obvious: The country [Saudi Arabia] is tired of waiting for Palestinians to make peace and is preparing to move on. The message to foreign capitals, perhaps to Washington in particular, is equally clear: The time is coming when a deal may be done.
Prophetic Discernment: Two ‘Scenarios’. I am not ‘dogmatic’ about either one. Other scenarios could come into play. THE POINT … is how close we are!
Trump may still yet get the Beast to agree for ‘MENA’ the ‘CURRENT’ plan, SHORTLY, in the few remaining days left in the ‘Last Trump’ or ‘Last Trumpence’ Presidency. Saudis may be ‘nervous’ about the Biden election and want to get the ‘deal done and finished’ while Trump is in the twilight of his presidency.
The following would take place AFTER the Rapture: Biden/Harris may work to ‘ENHANCE’ the plan by the literal splitting of Jerusalem along the 1967 lines. An ‘exchange’ of sovereignty to get a temple for the Jews and to give the Beast custodianship of al-Aqsa … that which he covets. The plan will be ‘ENHANCED’ (investment wise for the Palestinians) for Seven (7) years. Perhaps the investment amount will also be increased.
Then the following: Beast ‘ENHANCES’ the plan under Biden, by splitting Jerusalem along 1967 lines. In a ‘Give up Sovereignty, Get a Temple’ scenario. The plan finally gets ‘CONFIRMED’ or approved shortly, under Biden/Harris (Deceiver-in-Chief and Jezebel-in-Chief).
Either way, the Rapture / Harpazo / Redemption / ‘Twinkling’ is imminent.
Prophecy has a ‘window.’ That window is closing shortly and quickly. As is the door in the ‘Age of Grace’ for the world.
Pay ‘Eagle-Eye’ attention to the world geo-political news feeds to see if any type of ‘confirmation’ is forthcoming or made by the Prince / Beast/ 8th King / Son of Perdition / Future Antichrist / Man of Lawlessness. Also MbS, Man-by-Satan and the Confirmer and he that causeth the Abomination of Desolation in April 2024. Trump may surprise the world and suddenly proclaim that a deal has been reach or agreed upon by Saudi Arabia and at least nine (3×3) other Arab/Muslim countries from MENA. If nothing happens over the next 10 days, it is possible the entire covenant could be ‘strengthened and confirmed’ AFTER the rapture. This is a very real possibility. Be warned and hopeful.
