STATE DEPARTMENT DROPS ‘OCCUPIED’ FROM WEST BANK DESCRIPTION


JerusalemFor years, the international community and the U.S. government have described the West Bank in Israel as “occupied.”

That is, governed by Israel even though Palestinians claim ownership.

But just days ago, the U.S. State Department discontinued that description.

The agency’s new “Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2017, released Friday, assesses human rights in nearly 200 countries and territories.

“These reports are required by U.S. law and are used by a variety of actors including the U.S. Congress, the executive branch, and the judicial branch as a factual resource for decision making in matters ranging from assistance to asylum,” the department said.

There still is a reference to the “Israel-occupied Golan Heights,” but that same description for the West Bank has been dropped…. more

Hamas Vows ‘Millions of Martyrs’ and Cash for Injuries and Deaths in New Gaza Border Clashes


JERUSALEM, ISRAEL—As expected, thousands of protesters backed by Hamas burned hundreds of tires, sending plumes of black smoke billowing over the border with Israel.

The Gaza Health Ministry reports seven Palestinian protesters died, at least one of them a member of a terror group, as the rioters tried for a second week to cross into Israel. They also claim several hundred were injured, but those numbers could not be confirmed.

The crowd appeared to be “significantly smaller,” according to Israeli Defense Forces estimates, than the 30,000 who took part last Friday in “March of Return” protests to take back Arab villages lost to Israel in the 1948 war…. more

Barley Harvested in Preparation for Third Temple Wave Offering


On the second night of Passover, this past Saturday night, dozens of men, women and children went out to the fields to harvest barley, not so much as a reenactment but a real Temple-related Passover ceremony. The following day, the harvest was brought to Jerusalem where it was turned into flour and Kohanim (Jewish men descended from Aaron the Priest) performed a full-dress rehearsal for the Wave Offering, which will take place once again in the Third Temple.

Preparations for the event began on Friday before the holiday of Passover began. Members of the nascent Sanhedrin and representatives from the United Temple Movements went out to a field of barley near Ruchama in the Negev (southern Israel). They oversaw the selection of the finest sections of grain and tied them into sheaves, leaving the stalks connected to the soil…. more

Israel speeds up U.S. Embassy opening in Jerusalem by eliminating bureaucracy


The red tape that could have delayed the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem was cut on Tuesday, when the National Planning and Construction Council authorized plans to build a wall and escape route from the structure chosen, when the embassy moves from Tel Aviv.

Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon exercised his rarely used authority to fast-track the process, so that the embassy will be able to move to Jerusalem – in part – in May, in conjunction with the celebrations of the state’s 70th year.

Kahlon – who tweeted his plan to President Donald Trump last week – plans in the coming days to sign onto the council’s decision to exempt the construction on the US-government owned Diplomat Hotel from going through the Jerusalem Municipality’s bureaucratic process…. more

Ancient Jewish Sources Indicate Trump Will Pave Way for Third Temple: Prominent Rabbi


Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi in charge King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, revealed to Breaking Israel News a 600-year-old Jewish source stating that the Third Temple will be prepared by descendants of Edom as a “reparation” for destroying the Second Temple. Additional hints from esoteric sources indicate that US President Donald Trump has already begun this process.

“It sounds illogical that the Third Jewish Temple will be built by non-Jews,” Rabbi Berger told Breaking Israel News. “But Rabbinic sources state explicitly that this is what they must do to fix the historic wrongs that were committed.”

As the son of the “Mishkoltz Rebbe,” a revered Hasidic leader with thousands of followers, Rabbi Berger is well-versed in Jewish literature and based his conclusions on several classical sources.The rabbi began his explanation by using the 11th chapter of Leviticus that delineates the laws pertaining to animals that are fit for Jewish consumption. For an animal to be designated as Kosher, it must have split hooves and chew its cud. Despite the explicitly stated rule, four animals are specifically mentioned as being forbidden in a manner that seems textually redundant. The final animal specified as being forbidden to Jews is a chazir (pig)…. more

Sanhedrin Calls Arabs to Take Role in Third Temple as Prophesied by Isaiah


BIN: The nascent Sanhedrin, a Biblically mandated court of 71 elders, released a letter in Hebrew, English and Arabic inviting the Arabs as the sons of Ishmael to take their role in supporting the Third Temple as prophesied by Isaiah 60:4-6.

This move is far more than symbolic. It is intended to bring the entire world one step closer to the global peace that will characterize the Messianic era.

Rabbi Weiss noted that the invitation was not a political maneuver or even a religious imperative: “The letter does not reach out to other religions because of their belief but rather because of their ancestral role as the Children of Esau and the Children of Ishmael,” Rabbi Weiss said. “We are asking them to be prepared to take their part in serving God.” more …

Opinion by BIBLE PROPHECY TRACKER: The children of Ishmael and the children of Esau will instead wage war before a temple is built, as prophesied in Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39.

By the end of the wars, what is left of the children of Ishmael and the children of Esau will still be around while Antichrist sets the stage for the third temple. If, as we theorized, Antichrist is the final Amalek (Ex. 17:16), with Jewish and Gentile blood, both Arabs and Jews will follow along for 3.5 years.

“Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate…” Daniel 9:27

The scene is the mid-way point of the 7 year tribulation commencing the Great Tribulation.  Antichrist will declare himself God, and the Jews will reject him in the same way they rejected Mohammad. And like Mohammad, Antichrist, indwelt by Satan, will turn his wrath on the Jew at which point they will flee:

“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Matthew 24:15-16

We know from Daniel 11:41 that all Jordan will be spared the ravages of Antichrist because the mountains to where the Jews will flee are in southern Jordan (Mt. Seir/Petra), the former home of their eternal enemy Esau.

JERUSALEM, Israel – With less than two months until Israelis celebrate the nation’s 70th anniversary and the US moves its embassy to Jerusalem, terror attacks are on the rise.

Terrorists in the Gaza Strip are ramping up roadside bombings along the security fence while continuing construction on attack tunnels. On Sunday, the IDF destroyed two tunnels – one inside Israel and one in central Gaza.

But according to Israeli television commentator Ehud Ya’ari, the Gaza-based terror groups have a new tactic in mind…. more

Read all of 1 Kings 18 — below is parts of it
1 Kings 18:21 And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people did not answer him a word.

1 Kings 18:26 And they took the bull that was given them, and they prepared it and called upon the name of Baal from morning until noon, saying, “O Baal, answer us!” But there was no voice, and no one answered. And they limped around the altar that they had made. 27 And at noon Elijah mocked them, saying, “Cry aloud, for he is a god. Either he is musing, or he is relieving himself, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep and must be awakened.” 28 And they cried aloud and cut themselves after their custom with swords and lances, until the blood gushed out upon them. 29 And as midday passed, they raved on until the time of the offering of the oblation, but there was no voice. No one answered; no one paid attention.

by Bible Cartoons

1 Kings 18:30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come near to me.” And all the people came near to him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that had been thrown down. 31 Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord came, saying, “Israel shall be your name,” 32 and with the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord. And he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two seahs of seed. 33 And he put the wood in order and cut the bull in pieces and laid it on the wood. And he said, “Fill four jars with water and pour it on the burnt offering and on the wood.” 34 And he said, “Do it a second time.” And they did it a second time. And he said, “Do it a third time.” And they did it a third time. 35 And the water ran around the altar and filled the trench also with water.

1 Kings 18:36 And at the time of the offering of the oblation, Elijah the prophet came near and said, “O Lord, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known this day that you are God in Israel, and that I am your servant, and that I have done all these things at your word. 37 Answer me, O Lord, answer me, that this people may know that you, O Lord, are God, and that you have turned their hearts back.” 38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt offering and the wood and the stones and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. 39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces and said, “The Lord, he is God; the Lord, he is God.”
