The Burden of Babylon

Posted in END of the WORLD!!!, INTERNATIONAL, ISLAM & JIHAD, ISRAEL, MILITARY, PROPHECY by Uncle Jaque on 09/16/2014

Monday, Sept. 15, 2014:

This Morning’s Scripture Contemplation: ISAIAH 13.

We have been closely examining a number of potentially “End Times” prophecies lately, and marveling at how some of them seem to be particularly relevant in the context of current geopolitical developments around the World, particularly in the Middle East. Several of them, if we keep track of developing trends, strongly suggest that their fulfillment may be imminent if not already unfolding before our wondering eyes.

The video from Pastor J.D. Farag:

Mid-East Prophecy Update – September 14th, 2014

reviews a couple of the more poignant chapters regarding what may be the imminent fate of Syria (IS 17) and Egypt (IS 19) as well as what might be surmised by militant Islam’s obsession with conquest and domination of the “Levant”.
It may be argued, and many Eschatologists do, that much if not most of Bible prophecy has already been fulfilled and is no longer applicable to our time or the future. Others suggest the “prophetic echo” phenomenon, whereby a prophecy may be fulfilled multiple times over the course of history, with eerie similarities every time it is.

Some passages in the Book of Isaiah and Jeremiah alluded to by Rabbi Jonathan CAHN in his “Harbinger” series and subsequent works and presentations provide prime examples of that, and according to Cahn, America may be in imminent peril of experiencing a re-run of YHVH’s judgement upon His People when they become apostate, reject Him and turn to false gods.

My Morning Scripture perusal led me to stumble on to another one of the “Burden” prophecies in Isaiah, which we seemed to have overlooked as of late;

ISAIAH Chapter 13;

http://bibleontheweb.com/bible/KJV/Isaiah-13?highlight_verse=1#1

The burden of Babylon.

Since we have been focusing our attention on Egypt, which since the “Arab Spring” and subsequent ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood fanatics by the Egyptian Military seems to have settled down to a relatively civilized state of affairs – at least by Middle East standards – and Syria, which after years of civil war and hundreds of thousands of casualties appears to remain poised on the brink of destruction per IS 17, we seem to have taken our eyes off of Iraq, site of Ancient Babylon.

As of a couple of weeks ago, however, that complacency has been shattered by hordes of battle hardened and well trained fanatic Muslims sweeping in from Syria and rolling up Iraq’s American trained and equipped military like a cheap rug, capturing heavy weapons of war and transforming themselves into a formidable army casting fear into the whole region, including Israel.

The “Islamic State” or “ISIL” as they are occasionally known, is openly boasting about their ambitions to sweep the Middle East and form it into an Islamic Empire or “Caliphate” under strict Sharia Law, and in the process “Wipe Israel off the map” (Psalm 83).
In the long term (by 2020 according to their game plan) they intend to expand their Caliphate of conquest to the entire planet, and the entire Human Race is to be subject to Islam or exterminated.

It seems as though what passes for a government in Iraq is at the moment fighting for it’s very life. Will Iraq / Babylon survive as an autonomous civilization, or will it fall to the barbarian hordes and be transformed into another agent of global Sharia conquest?
What might we suppose will happen to Iraq should long range missiles armed with WMD be launched into Israel, as they most certainly would be after ISIL seizes them?

Something similar might befall Syria after it falls into the hands of conquering fanatics, we might suppose (IS 17 – The Burden of Damascus).

Where does Russia (A key player in the Ezekiel 38-9 “Gog / Magog” prophetic battle) fit in to all of this? They have expressed their support for the Assad regime in Syria, and when Damascus is reduced to an uninhabitable pile of rubble may want to do something about it.

Here we have 3 examples of “end time” prophecy which could not have already been fulfilled;

Damascus, we are told, is the oldest continuously inhabited city known to human history. Never in recorded history has it ever been completely destroyed (reduced to a heap of rubble) nor rendered uninhabitable by human beings, as IS 17 foretells.
In modern times, however, a nuclear strike would certainly bring about both of those conditions in one hell of a hurry.
When ISIL or some other band of Islamic homicidal psychopaths start launching WMD into Israel, Saudi Arabia, Europe or some other nuclear capable target, it’s entirely conceivable that retaliation in kind might be expected.

Although most of ancient Babylon has been relegated to an archeological dig, surrounding areas, particularly the nearby city of Baghdad seem to have been continuously inhabited for a long time.
Some Eschatologists consider Biblical references to “Babylon” as allegorical to a later global super power – perhaps the United States of America.

Are Isaiah’s dire warnings of Babylon’s end time downfall really directed towards US?

While geographical Babylon or Iraq faces an existential threat of invasion from without, America is under Islamic siege both from without, as the open border “immigration” and “refugee” invasion indicates, as well as from within, as Islamic supremacists camouflaged as “Peaceful / Moderate” Muslims immigrate in mass, 85infiltrate and compromise our infrastructure, military and government from within.

America has been allegorically compared to both ancient Israel and Babylon.
Are Isaiah and Jeremiah suggesting that the distinction may be essentially moot?;
Unless we repent and turn from our apostasy and sin, and become one Nation under YHVH (Not Allah) again, then the prophesied judgement and destruction may be circling over our heads and coming down fast.

As Pastor J.D. advises, it might be a wise idea to observe what is going down around us, what is going on within us, and prepare for what prophecy strongly warns may well be imminently ahead.
The “Signs of the times” are, IMHO, getting pretty obvious; the prudent will prepare, materially as well as spiritually.

Anyone who is not on speaking terms with Father YHVH here and now is likely setting themselves up for some major angst and regret once the prophetic point of no return is passed… and by the looks of things all around us in and on the Earth, in the Heavens, and in the pages of Holy writ, it could be any day now.

ISRAEL; The Trap; the Jackals, and the Sword of a King. Nov. 2012

Posted in ISLAM & JIHAD, ISRAEL, ORIGINAL WORKS by Uncle Jaque on 11/28/2012

ISRAEL; The Trap; the Jackals, and the Sword of a  King…..

Nov. 25, 2012

OK; I’m laying here with my guts hanging out (Inoperable hernia) totally useless, so being unable to do much of anything else besides opine and bloviate, here goes:

Apparently Gaza blockade has been lifted, making the jihad ever so much easier. If Obama / Klintoon forced Bibi to submit to that, then the barbarians did in fact “win”…
Again.

IMHO the Obama Cabal has Israel over a barrel; without energy independence, a relatively small population and limited resources, Israel can’t sustain a protracted war with the whole damn world, and that’s just what they are going to get as soon as they invade or try to take back Gaza. Sharon sold them out by falling for the infamous “land for peace” scam and now they won’t be un-sold, even with the copious shedding of blood and treasure.

The Umma has set a trap for Israel and is using Gaza as their provocative bait. As soon as the IDF goes in on the ground, the trap will be sprung as the whole pack of jackals – Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, and probably a suddenly (albeit temporarally) re united Syria will promptly pounce on them. The US, while uttering political platitudes and admonitions, would probably stand there and watch, most likely feeding intel and covert logistical support to the Muslims while withholding it from the IDF or giving them intentionally treacherous “disinformation”.

Hilldebeast would shake her finger and sneer “We warned ya not to do that” as the UN imposed sanctions on IS for their “aggression”.

While the Gaza blockade is blown wide open for the Umma, a blockade probably would be imposed on Israel, cutting her off from an increasingly hostile world.

From a tactical standpoint, it’s a battle Israel can’t possibly win and would be unlikely to survive for very long.

What are Israel’s other options, if an effective defense is denied them?

They can back off and wait, which seems to be the present course.

Wait for what? (I think I just stole that line from the PM – thank you, Sir!)

No matter how much they capitulate to Hussein O., Hillary, the Umma and the “global community” it will never be enough… not until the last Jew is exterminated.

That will be a lot easier to accomplish, of course, once Iran’s nuclear warheads are ready to fly.

I’m pretty sure that PM Netanyahu knows that fact all too well.

The insatiable pack of barbarian jackals now surrounding Israel on every side will continue to stalk and nip at Israels heels as rocks and rockets continue to fly, and murdering Hajis seek out more victims to feed their prophet’s eternal blood lust on.

Whoa!; do I detect a few bulls among the encompassing packs of jackals and hyenas?
Psalm 22:12&13. …Se’lah.
(I’m coming out of my old 1560 Geneva Bible here; what does your Torah have to say about it?)

Muslims are, by theological mandate as well as cultural tradition, relentless; the stress of continual terror has already taken it’s toll on the People of Israel, and if Islam can’t kill all the Jews and other “Kafir” they will darned sure make their lives as miserable as they possibly can. How much more of this psychological torture can the besieged Population take?

One way or another, Islam is determined to destroy the lives of any who dare to resist their pathological, supremacist tyranny.

I think that a lot of Israelis would rather die fighting the barbarians against impossible odds than to be reduced to quivering insanity from having to live in constant fear of them.
When Islam’s victim is driven to utter desperation it’s hard for them to be rational – and irrational impulsivity is an advantage that the Muslim always exploits.

I think that Mr. Netanyahu is being reluctantly rational given his limited options… but the Israeli people seem to be getting increasingly desperate and tempted to take Islam’s bait regardless of the menacing consequences.

Unwilling at least for now to charge headlong into the jackal’s trap, of which Gaza is probably the trigger plate, Israel can always cower and capitulate until the world eventually wears them down. Then what? We know that the Umma is never going to be satisfied, leave them alone or let up on them.
Total unconditional submission is the Muslim’s consistent historical demand upon it’s target civilizations, and in the case of Israel, submission probably equals extermination; Physical death to most, but lacking divine intervention, certain cultural and spiritual annihilation for all.

While vehemently denying that the Holocaust ever happened, Islam can hardly wait to finish the job.

If unrelenting terror and harassment does not ultimately win the day, there are always chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons in the wings.

Whatever it takes, Islam is determined to win – and in this case it’s winner take all. Islam always plays for keeps and mercy is not usually on the table as far as they are concerned – unless, of course, they are the exclusive recipients of it.

Will Israel be forced to the precipice of a national Masada and submit to genocide by the Muslim Headsman or gas chambers, or will they just stampede like a herd of helpless lemmings over the edge and into the sea, embracing extinction by suicide rather than rape, slavery and slaughter?

I really don’t think that’s going to happen – but what other choices does the “world” leave them?

Right now I’m sort of visualizing Israel as their old King David… only not at his finest hour when he took up his Shepherd’s sling against the terrible Philistine giant Goliath.
No; now I see him drooling in his beard, staggering around scratching at the door, running into things and mumbling incoherently, feigning (was he really?) insanity while he was on the run from Saul, in order to deceive Achish the King of Gath into sparing his life, not considering him or his Nation to be much of a threat. (1 Samuel 21:13)

Hardly the sort of behavior we expect from our heroes, is it?

And Lord, don’t we all need a hero right about now?

I find it ironic that David had the courage to confront the giant Goliath when he was armed only with a sling, but when he went to Gath packing that same giant’s mighty sword, he strangely turned coward.

Isn’t that the same sword which is depicted on the insignia of the IDF?

(Which just happens to appear on the breech of my old Israeli 7.62mm K-98 Mauser)

…Isn’t that the same sword which the esteemed PM rhetorically alluded to having one hand on recently?

I would think that if anything were to rust that venerable blade, it more ought to be the blood of Israel’s mortal enemies rather than the saliva of a blithering, cowardly King.

But then again I’m just a simple Yankee Goyim; what do I know?

Now that Islam’s demand that the blockade be lifted has been capitulated to, how long do you suppose it will take the barbarians to demand that the fences and gates protecting Israeli villages and settlements be torn down as well?
I fully expect that a cowed Israel will comply in order to establish another hudna “peace” treaty… and where will that leave them – both tactically and prophetically speaking?

(Clue: Ezekiel 38:11)

Has the sword of David, formerly the sword of Goliath, now rusted fast in his scabbard…

Or shall the Word of our Creator once again call upon His chosen People to draw it forth with a will, and with a mighty pillar of ancient, holy fire leading on, at last fulfill their prophetic destiny?

Shalom through Victory; Victory in Messhiach Adonai!

Do ya ever wonder why God Loves Israel, despite her many flaws and transgressions?

…or why Satan has been trying, and continues to desperately strive, to exterminate the Jews?

Watch “I am Israel” 6 minutes

Obama Plays Nice to Israel…

Posted in INTERNATIONAL, ISRAEL, PROPHECY by Uncle Jaque on 07/09/2010

An article in the Jerusalem Post (emphasis added) followed by my commentary:



US President Barack Obama’s attempts to portray himself as pro-Israel in his press conference with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the White House on Tuesday failed to persuade right-wing MKs, who warned that Obama is “still evil.”
The MKs questioned the president’s motives and suggested that he was putting on a show for American Jews ahead of the crucial November mid-term elections, in which the Democrats may lose control of Congress. “He doesn’t sound evil now because he needs Jewish votes and money,” said Deputy Negev and Galilee Development Minister Ayoub Kara.       “But I won’t forget the pressure he put on Netanyahu and the stress I saw in the prime minister the last time he came back from Washington. He is acting the way he is for political reasons. I hope he will stay this way but I doubt it, because he hasn’t changed.” Likud MK Danny Danon said he believes Obama learned his lesson that pressuring Israel does not work. He said he hopes Obama will also learn that the Likud would not allow Netanyahu to continue the 10- month construction moratorium in Judea and Samaria beyond September”

Yeah; gosh – Whodda thunk it, huh?

Still hoping – and praying to Allah – for the “Final Solution”….

YO!; ‘Bamma; Check it out, Dawg!:

…the LORD had said unto Abram…

Gen 12:2   …. I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

:3 .    And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

*******************

….O thou King Hussein Obama; Thine own hand and tongue hath damned thee…
Thy Kingdom soon shall be taken from thee;
thy rod of iron broken asunder in the sight of thine enemies.
When tho goest to smite the Children of Israel,
the King of Kings and Adonai of Israel shall smite thee sore;
In a moment thou shalt be no more
and the smoke of thy burning will cease not forever.
Behold O King, now haughty and lifted up;

…Thy judgment draweth nigh.

Posted in ISRAEL, State of Maine by Uncle Jaque on 11/19/2009

Recent dialog on a local forum – Mr. C., having experienced multiple difficulties trying to make a living and support a family in Maine, is finally abandoning the Marxist State of Maine for a new start in Tennessee.

In his posting, he offers some of his rationale for his relocation:

ME Omelet – Reply to C**O 11/18/09

C**O Posted:
subject:   Were you expecting a different result?
PostPosted: Nov 16th, ’09, 08:31

“Hope” is an odd attribute…. seems that I had been “hoping” Maine would become a sucessful place for a long time and realized last winter than no matter how badly I wanted to stay here waiting for positive change was never gonna happen.

I admire those of you who still HOPE for a different Maine, who collect signitures on petitions, attend tax rallies etc. but really all you get is some temporary feel good and more false hope.

Will TSHTF? Eventually; perhaps not during my lifetime.

The VOTE earlier this month here in Maine totally illustrates that MOST Mainers who actually vote like taxation the way it is now, that they like big government, runaway funding of social programs and growing the “non-profit” sector. …

So now comes “healthcare reform”… and I live in Maine where the politicos have already destroyed the system… TN is likely to OPT OUT so perhaps I’ll be safe from government intrusion concerning my health.

In TN I will need only work ONE DAY per week to pay our bills…. I have no savings, no 401K or investments…. had I worked as hard anywhere else I would be extremely wealthy by now but instead I hurt myself paying the bills grinding out a living where there has never been tons of lucrative work.

…. You might all consider living the remaining days you have in a place that respects you financially and politically… yeah I suppose Maine is Home… but the very definition of HOME should be a place where you are safe, secure and unafraid….

America was settled by those seeking a better life; over time American pioneers settled beyond the colonies… wanna see HAPPY PEOPLE and be a happy person? Move to a red state while  you still can.”

************ My Response: ***************

It’s a tough call to determine at what point we must stop bailing the old scow out, recognize reality, and man the lifeboats while we still can.

With the recent off year elections suggesting that we may be seeing a re-awakening of the old American Spirit as an unintended blow-back from the Obama Syndicate’s headlong rush to communist dictatorship and global police state tryanny, we might sense a glimmer of hope.

We have, however, seen such little glimmers here before, and yet still here we are.

Some National Republicans (I doubt if the State GOP had anything to do with it) have been pushing Dean Scontras to take another shot at it in 2012.   I wish him luck, but quite frankly I fully expect to see Jesus Christ coming in all of his glory with legions of Angels before we ever see a fiscally responsible, ethical, honest, conservative politician elected to anything beyond the occasional token State House position from the Commonwealth of Maine.

Speaking of Messiah’s return; it will probably happen in Jerusalem, Israel.  Israel is currently welcoming, we are told, Americans who can teach.  You can get a passport and go for a visit, and if things work out just never come back.

Israel might just be the last relatively “free” civilization on Earth very soon, if it isn’t already.  If the sandhats in fact do manage to nuke it, I want to be at ground zero on the Temple Mount in Old Jerusalem – but for a number of reasons, I don’t really think that it’s going to end that way (I read the Book).

Were it not for my remaining Family – predominantly Domestic Management (who does a pretty good job keeping me out of serious trouble), Daughter & family (2 precious little Grandkids) here, the People’s Communist Non-Republic of New England would very likely already be in my rear view mirror, and if I wasn’t set up in a relatively free State like TN (I liked it down there when I last passed through in ’70) then the old US of A would be fading fast astern as well.

Viva Yisrael, Baby!  😀    I’m ordering my Hebrew Rosetta Stone CD!

(I already have an old IDF K-98 Mauser in 7.62 NATO (.308), but doubt that they’d let me take it along…)
