IMMORTAL, Immortality, Living Forever


Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. [1Ti 1:17 NASB]

to those who by perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life; [Rom 2:7 NASB]

For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. [1Co 15:53 NASB]

But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP in victory. [1Co 15:54 NASB]

who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen. [1Ti 6:16 NASB]

but now has been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, [2Ti 1:10 NASB]

 

The word ‘Rapture’ is not in the English translation of the King James Bible. The Greek word ‘harpazo’ is translated to English as the words “caught up” and “we shall be changed”, which also means ‘Raptured’.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.
Therefore comfort one another with these words.

1 Cor 15:50-58
Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.
Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed,
in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.
But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP in victory.
“O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY? O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law;
but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.

Strong’s G726 – harpazō

Latin – ‘rapio’

All prophecies have been fulfilled for the Rapture to occur! We are patiently anticipating his coming for us! Share the good news of Jesus Christ with your family and friends. With your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel! Amen!

What Must I Do To Be Saved?   https://revelationlastday.com/revelation-of-jesus-christ/revelation-22/what-must-i-do-to-be-saved/

Acts 10:38-43  N.A.S. ‘You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. We are witnesses of all the things He did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem. They also put Him to death by hanging Him on a cross. God raised Him up on the third day and granted that He become visible, not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.  And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead. Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.’

1 Cor 15: 1-8  ‘By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of the first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more that five hundred (500) of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also’

One [thing] I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.
[I would have lost heart], unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.
Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD! Psalms 27:4,13,14

3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what [will be] the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 “All these [are] the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 “And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 “But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. 15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), … 36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 37 “But as the days of Noah [were], so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 “For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 “and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 “Then two [men] will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. … 42 “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. … 44 “Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. – Matthew 24:3-15, 36-40, 42, 44 NKJV

4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 8 But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing. – 1 Thessalonians 5:4,8-11 NASB

Chapter 6, the opening of the 1st seal of God’s wrath. The devil is cast down to earth, knowing ‘that he has a short time’.  Verse 9 is ‘the rapture’

Rev 6:1 NOW I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.”

1st Seal

1st Church Age (Rev 2:1)

Rev 6:2 And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. Zech 1:8,18-21; 6:1-3;

White horse (war)

Zech 1:8; I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that [were] in the bottom; and behind him [were there] red horses, speckled, and white. 18Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns. 19And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What [be] these? And he answered me, These [are] the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.20 And the LORD shewed me four carpenters. 21Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These [are] the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up [their] horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.

Zech 6:1 And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains [were] mountains of brass. 2In the first chariot [were] red horses; and in the second chariot black horses; 3And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses.

Rev 6:3 When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.”

2nd Seal

2nd Church Age (Rev 2:8)

Rev 6:4 Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword. (Rev 6:8)

Fiery red horse

Sword – people killed – Another War

Rev 6:5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. (Note: Africa has been in famine for 40 years. Now the U.S., Israel, Syria, Turkey)

3rd Seal

3rd Church Age (Rev 2:12)

Black horse (famine) History tells of the terrible times after the wars.

Rev 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”

See http://www.raptureready.com/abc/antichrist The Anti-Christ – “Perilous times” also includes “economic disaster.” While the antichrist is boasting about having solutions to the world’s problems, God will release a third horse and rider. John said, “I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine” (Revelation 6:5, 6). The third rider will bring economic collapse to the world. God will allow him to do this. Food will be so valuable it will have to be weighed on scales before it is sold. Money will be so worthless that what a man earns in one day will purchase barely enough for one person to survive on. It definitely seems that America, and perhaps the entire world, has forgotten that a good economy is a blessing of God and not a benefit of having the right kind of politician in office. This moral confusion will be disastrous in the days to come. “Perilous times” also includes starvation and sickness, and two more signs of the last days Jesus talked about are “famine” and “pestilence” (Matthew 24:7). God will release a fourth horse and rider that will fulfill this. John said, “I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth” (Revelation 6:8). God will allow this horse and rider. One-fourth of the world’s population will die as war and economic disaster spreads like wildfire triggering hunger and disease on earth.

Rev 6:7 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.”

4th Seal
4th Church Age (Rev 2:18)

Rev 6:8 So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth. Rev 1:18; 6:8; 20:13,14; Matt 24:6,7; Lk 21:9; 1 Chr 15:26; (6:8; 8:6; 13:18;? Great trib?) (The 4th seal now, waiting for the rapture.  The 5th church age, and the 6th church age.) There shall be ‘war and rumors of war.’

Pale horse – Death and Hades followed. Power to kill
Those poor people in Africa and the Middle East must believe they are in the throes of God’s wrath now! The ‘Great’ Tribulation!

11/10/15 http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34779447 Some 11 million children are at risk from hunger, disease and water shortages in east and southern Africa because of the strengthening El Nino weather phenomenon, the UN children’s charity has said.
It has caused the worst drought in more than 30 years in Ethiopia, Unicef said.
Its effects could also be “particularly harsh” in Somalia, amid fears of flooding, it warned.
El Nino is caused by Pacific Ocean warming.
“The weather phenomenon, among the strongest on record, is likely to cause more floods and droughts, fuel Pacific typhoons and cyclones and affect more areas if it continues strengthening as forecast over the coming months,” Unicef said in a statement.
It said 8.2 million people in Ethiopia faced food insecurity, while an estimated 350,000 children needed treatment for severe acute malnutrition.
“To make matters worse, the weather phenomenon may also bring flooding to some areas of the country in the coming months,” Unicef said.
Ethiopia says it has food surpluses in country which it continues to send to areas affected by the drought.
“The government is working hard to ensure that no-one dies from lack of food in this El Nino year and, contrary to some Western news reports, there will not be famine of any sort, let alone anything remotely like the magnitude of that of 1984,” a statement from the Ethiopian embassy in the UK said.
Unicef said severe flooding was also expected in neighbouring Somalia, where more than three million people were in need of aid as the effects of El Nino were already being felt.
In Kenya, the government estimated that 2.5 million children may be affected by floods, landslides, mudslides and diseases linked to the El Nino rains, it said.
5/6/15 http://www.debka.com/newsupdatepopup/11276/ Arab sources report loud explosions early Wednesday in Omdurman, west of the Sudanese capital of Khartoum. They are attributed to a missile attack to destroy a compound believed to house a weapons store or a plant for the productions of long-range missiles.  In 2012, an air strike hit a large convoy carrying arms, ammo and military equipment originating in Iran and destined for the Palestinian Hamas in the Gaza Strip as it drove through Sudan.
4/24/15 http://www.debka.com/article/24556/How-does-sanctions-ridden-Iran-find-a-multibillion-war-chest-to-fund-6-armies-fighting-in-4-Mid-East-wars-  This arithmetic is testimony to Iran’s mysteriously deep pockets. The sanctions the US, Europe and the United Nations clamped down on Tehran clearly had no effect on its willingness and ability to lay out fabulous sums to promote its ambitions as Middle East top dog. Iran is spending a vast fortune – up to an estimated $6-8 billion per year – to keep six armed forces fighting in four Middle East war campaigns for expanding its sphere of influence.  Month after month, Tehran forks out close to half a billion dollars – and sometimes more – to keep those conflicts on the boil. How Iran manages to keep this war chest flowing so abundantly from an economy crippled by international sanctions has never been explained.

Rev 6:9 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. Rev 4:1; Isa 26:20; 27:1; 40:8; Rev 1:2,9; 6:9; 18:4; 20:4;

The 5th seal, Rev 6:9-11.
5th Church Age (Rev 3: )
Rev 4:1 – 6:11

This Is The Rapture. There are souls under the altar, slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. We join them. (Read about the rapture here: http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/2012/12/21/many-people-have-asked-me-this-year-what-is-the-rapture-heres-what-i-tell-them/ )
Amen!

 Isa 40:8; The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Isa 26:20; 27:1; 40:8; Isa 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. 21For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. 27:1In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword.
Isa 27:1 In that day the LORD with His severe sword, great and strong, Will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan that twisted serpent; And He will slay the reptile that [is] in the sea.
Isa 40:8 The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.”

Rev 6:11 Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed. Rev 3:5,18; 4:4; 6:11; 7:9,13,14; 15:6; 19:8,14; 22:14; Ex 28:2; Lev 8:6-9; Isa 26:20; 27:1; 40:8; 61:10; Dan 7:9; Matt 22:11-14; Rom 3:21; 1Thess 4:16-17;

White Robes given

The raptured souls are told, ‘rest a little while longer,’

The garment in Scripture is a symbol of righteousness.
Ex 28:2; And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother for glory and for beauty.

Lev 16:4; He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these [are] holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and [so] put them on.

Isa 26:20; Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

Isa 61:10; I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh [himself] with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth [herself] with her jewels.

Dan 7:9; I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment [was] white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne [was like] the fiery flame, [and] his wheels [as] burning fire.

1 Thess 4:16-17; For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Chapter 6 verses 12 through 17 are descriptions of events that are final for the earth and the heavens. Catastrophic events which happen in the final wrath of God.

Other Rapture supporting texts.
Isa 25:8,9 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken [it]. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this [is] our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this [is] the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
Isa 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
John 14:2-3; In my Father’s house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.

1 Cor 15:50-58; Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must] put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory? The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law. But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

SALVATION – HOW TO BE SAVED

Acts 10:38-43  N.A.S. ‘You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. We are witnesses of all the things He did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem. They also put Him to death by hanging Him on a cross. God raised Him up on the third day and granted that He become visible, not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.  And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead. Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.
1 Cor 15: 1-8 ‘By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of the first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred (500) of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also’
‘I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord.’ Psalms 27:4,13,14

After the Rapture – The people who are Left Behind!

Isaiah 10:5 Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger — the staff in their hands is My wrath.
Zephaniah 3:8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination [is] to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, [even] all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

5/29/15 http://www.timesofisrael.com/six-foreign-ministers-headed-to-israel/ As France readies ‘imposed peace’ push at UN, battery of foreign officials to hold meetings in Jerusalem, Ramallah.  German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier is slated to visit Israel on Sunday, followed later in the week by Canada’s Rob Nicholson and New Zealand’s Murray McCully, the Ynet news site reported. Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna will visit next weekend, and in June France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and Cyprus’s President Nicos Anastasiades are expected to follow. The directors-general of four East European foreign ministers, those of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary, will also be in Israel next week. European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini was in Israel this week for talks with Israeli and Palestinian officials. They also mark a push to “internationalize” the peace efforts, moving from bilateral talks that many diplomats feel are unlikely to bear fruit to a broader international negotiating framework, and expanding the involvement of countries other then the United States in the peace negotiations. On Thursday, France’s Fabius made the purpose of his visit explicit – UN sets a timetable of 18 months.

The leaders of the world will be saying, “Peace, peace,” and the calamity around us may be shocking, but in an instant we who remain will be changed and delivered from
His wrath, according to His promises! Amen!

Eze 7:25 Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and [there shall be] none. Eze 13:10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and [there was] no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered [morter]:

For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, [which] go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Zech 14:4-6 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, [Making] a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south. 5 Then you shall flee [through] My mountain valley, For the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee As you fled from the earthquake In the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus the LORD my God will come, [And] all the saints with You. 6 It shall come to pass in that day [That] there will be no light; The lights will diminishThen ‘IT IS DONE’!

ISIS – (Sunni) *6/18/16 http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/ISIS-Threat/Analysis-ISIS-leader-al-Baghdadi-is-living-on-borrowed-time-456826  Information released Wednesday on the demise of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the founder of ISIS, was premature, and not for the first time. In the past year, there have been at least three false reports that al-Baghdadi was killed during US airstrikes.
***6/10/16 http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/Flash.aspx/362121#.V1r9pPkrKhc Iraqi news media are reporting that the US-led coalition against ISIS hit the terror group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in one of its airstrikes last night (Thursday), Ynet reports.
There is no confirmation from either ISIS or the coalition at this time.
5/14/15 http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-32744070 The Islamic State’s release last week of an audio message by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reaffirmed his leadership of the group following a six-month silence and rumors over his health.  In his half-hour speech posted on jihadist forums on Thursday, Baghdadi calls for a general mobilization and urges all Muslims to move to the caliphate he proclaimed last year or wage jihad (holy war) wherever they are.  “I think this release partly has to do with rumours of his supposed incapacitation,” said Aymenn Jawad al-Tamimi of the Middle East Forum research group.
America – (Shi’ite) Barak Hussein Obama – 9/28/15 http://www.israelhayom.com/site/newsletter_article.php?id=28525 Regretfully, Israel’s biggest fears are now materializing. Instead of being the architects and shaping a new reality in the Middle East, Washington is falling into line with the existing reality. Wow! Obama could easily fill ‘the false prophet’ of Rev 13:11,12 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. Rev 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs comeout of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Isaiah 10:5  Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger — the staff in their hands is My wrath.
Zephaniah 3:8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination [is] to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, [even] all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
The little horn of Daniel 7,8,11 and Revelation 13 we believe speaks of ISIS/Iran. Their ‘purpose’? They are the demons who will be used to administer the wrath of God upon an unbelieving mankind!

Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then [I saw] the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received [his] mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

Rev 9:1And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

Rev 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.

The beasts of Daniel, same as 1st beast of Revelation 13: A coalition of the same countries of Daniel: (The Scarlot Coloured Beast {countries/kingdoms/nations coalition})

Dan 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn (ISIS), before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots (Iraq, Syria, Lebanon): and, behold, in this horn [were] eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things (ISIS leader,the Anti-Christ).
Dan 8:23“And in the latter time of their kingdom,
When the transgressors have reached their fullness,
A king shall arise,
Having fierce features,
Who understands sinister schemes.

Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

The ‘Coalition’ of the Leopard, Bear and Lion of Rev 13:

THE LEOPARD

“the beast which I saw was like a leopard” (Rev 13:2)
Dan 7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.
2/2/16 http://in.reuters.com/article/mideast-crisis-coalition-idINKCN0VA3S4 An international coalition is pushing back Islamic State militants (ISIS) in their Syrian and Iraqi strongholds, but the group is threatening Libya and could seize the nation’s oil wealth, U.S Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday.
Officials from 23 countries met in Rome to review the fight against Islamic State militants (ISIS), who have created a self-proclaimed Caliphate across swathes of Syria and Iraq, and are spreading into other countries, notably Libya.
The one-day Rome meeting took place as talks have begun in Geneva to try to end the five-year-old Syrian civil war, which has killed at least 250,000 people, driven more than 10 million from their homes and drawn in the United States and Russia on opposite sides.
While Washington has long said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has lost the legitimacy to lead, it has made clear that its first priority is to try to rein in Islamic State group.
“If you want to beat Daesh (ISIS) quickly, then get a negotiated deal to end the Syria war,” Kerry said.

The BEAR

“his feet were like the feet of a bear”
Daniel 7:5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and [it had] three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.

Rev 17:12,13″The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.
“These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.” The country that is ‘Mystery, Babylon’ is keeping these 10 kings under check for now!

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

The LION is BABYLON

“and his mouth like the mouth of a lion”
Dan 7:4 The first [was] like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
Dan 11:11 “And the king of the South shall be moved with rage, and go out and fight with him, with the king of the North, who shall muster a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into the hand of his enemy.

**We make a transition from Daniel, the Lion being Babylon, to Revelation Lion, still Babylon (mystery, babylon), {Rev 17:16 And the ten horns (countries/kingdoms) which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore {mystery, Babylon}, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.} {17:17For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast}[13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.], until the words of God shall be fulfilled.} and is part of the coalition that is the scarlet coloured beast.

How it all ties together:

Rev 13:1And I stood upon the sand of the sea (‘sea’ in scripture imagery stands for the populace, the unorganized mass of mankind (Isa 60:5; Dan 7:2,3; Mt.13:47; Lk 21:25;)),

and saw a beast (17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns)

rise up out of the sea (‘sea’ in scripture imagery stands for the populace, the unorganized mass of mankind (Isa 60:5; Dan 7:2,3; Mt.13:47; Lk 21:25;)),

having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, (17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns) (Rev 12:3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 12:9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.) (Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years) (These 10 crowns/horns (see Dan 7:24) are kings/countries that once were the Ottoman Empire. Turkey, (Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. 44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream [is] certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.)http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/islam/history/ottomanempire_1.shtml (These 10 horns are kings/countries that once were the Ottoman Empire.) At its peak it included:

  • Turkey
  • Egypt
  • Greece
  • Bulgaria
  • Romania
  • Macedonia
  • Hungary
  • Palestine
  • Jordan
  • Lebanon
  • Syria
  • Parts of Arabia
  • Much of the coastal strip of North Africa

The empire officially ended on the 1st November 1922, when the Ottoman sultanate was abolished and Turkey was declared a republic. The Ottoman caliphate continued as an institution, with greatly reduced authority, until it too was abolished on the 3rd March 1924.]

and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. [“Allah”- “Praise “Allah”] (17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns)
2 And the beast (17:3 a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns)

which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion:(Daniel 7:3″And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.
4″The first [was] like a lion, and had eagle’s wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
5″And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and [had] three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’
6″After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it.
7″After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It [was] different from all the beasts that [were] before it, and it had ten horns.
8″I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, [were] eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.

17’Those great beasts, which are four, [are] four kings [which] arise out of the earth.
23″Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth, Which shall be different from all [other] kingdoms, And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces.
24The ten horns [are] ten kings [Who] shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first [ones], And shall subdue three kings. (ISIS)
25He shall speak [pompous] words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then [the saints] shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time. (3 1/2 years)
26’But the court shall be seated, And they shall take away his dominion, To consume and destroy [it] forever). (Dan 7:17 These great beasts, which are four, [are] four kings, [which] shall arise out of the earth.)
40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all [things]: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. 41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. 42 And [as] the toes of the feet [were] part of iron, and part of clay, [so] the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. 44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream [is] certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. (note there are 5 counting the toes))

and the dragon (Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand year)

gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. (Rev 17:17 “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. Isa 14:24 The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, [so] shall it stand: 25 That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. 26 This [is] the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this [is] the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. 27 For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul [it]? and his hand [is] stretched out, and who shall turn it back?)

3And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4And they worshipped the dragon (Rev 12:9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.) (Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years)

which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship – acknowledges his power) (Rev 17:17 “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. (see Isa 14:24-27))

saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things [now speaking of the antichrist man, a leader]

and blasphemies; (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship – acknowledges his power) (17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship – acknowledges his power, bowing down to him), having seven heads and ten horns)

and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. (3 ½ years) (See Dan 9:27. 7 years total)
6And he opened his mouth [now speaking of the antichrist man, a leader]

in blasphemy (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah”)

against God, to blaspheme His name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7And 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. (Rev 17:17 “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. (see Isa 14:24-27))
8And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship – acknowledges his power, bowing down) (Rev 17:17 “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. (see Isa 14:24-27))

whose names are not written in the book of life [the unsaved] of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10He 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.
11And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. (Rev 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.)
12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (“Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship – acknowledges his power, bowing down)
13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth (Rev 17:17 “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. (see Isa 14:24-27))

by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (bow down, convert to, “Allah”- “Praise “Allah” – worship – acknowledges his power)
16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: (Rev 14:9 Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 “And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”)
17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six. (In the Codex Sinaiticus there are three Greek symbols that have been interpreted to be 666.)

Rev 17:1Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment (Chap 18)

of the great harlot (17:5 and on her forehead a name [was] written MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH) (18and the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. “Babylon”)

who sits on many waters (15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues)

2 “with whom the kings of the earth (The Scarlet Beast)

having seven heads and ten horns. (12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.”)

4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.
5 And on her forehead a name [was] written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Dubai  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubai  Dubai (/dˈb/ doo-BYArabic: دبيّ‎ Dubayy, IPA: [dʊˈbæj]) is a city in the United Arab Emirates, located within the emirate of the same name. The emirate of Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. It has the largest population in the UAE (2,106,177) and the second-largest land territory (4,114 km2) after the capital, Abu Dhabi.[4] Abu Dhabi and Dubai are the only two emirates to have veto power over critical matters of national importance in the country’s legislature.[5] The city of Dubai is located on the emirate’s northern coastline and heads up the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area. Dubai is often misperceived as a country or city-state and, in some cases, the UAE as a whole has been described as ‘Dubai’

 UAE

 

Abu Dhabi houses important offices of the federal government, and is the seat for the UAE (United Arab Emirates Government) and the home for the Abu Dhabi Emiri Family and the President of the UAE from this family. Abu Dhabi has grown to be a cosmopolitan metropolis. Its rapid development and urbanisation, coupled with the relatively high average income of its population, has transformed Abu Dhabi to a larger and advanced metropolis. Today the city is the country’s center of politicalindustrial activities, and a major cultural, and commercial centre due to its position as the capital. Abu Dhabi alone generated 56.7% of the GDP of the United Arab Emirates in 2008.

On Wednesday, this frail 79-year-old, who only ascended to the throne in January, executed a Saudi version of a palace revolution by suddenly altering the line of succession. Prince Muqrin, the youngest living son of ibn Saud, had been lined up to inherit the throne. Now the king has ruthlessly shoved him aside. For good measure, Prince Saud al-Faisal, the foreign minister, has also been relieved of his duties  http://www.debka.com/newsupdate/7535/    Is this emirate playing the Babylon roll???  http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/183979#.U-pJVfldWSo   Saudi Arabia[b] ( i/ˌsdi əˈrbi.ə/ or  i/ˌsɔːd əˈrbi.ə/), officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA),[c] is the largest Arab state in Western Asia by land area (approximately 2,150,000 km2 (830,000 sq mi), constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula) and the second-largest in the Arab world after Algeria. It is bordered byJordan and Iraq to the north, Kuwait to the northeast, QatarBahrain and the United Arab Emirates to the east, Oman to the southeast, and Yemen in the south. It is the only nation with both a Red Sea coast and a Persian Gulf coast.Before the inception of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, modern-day Saudi Arabia consisted of four distinct regions: HejazNajd and parts of Eastern Arabia (Al-Hasa) andSouthern Arabia (‘Asir).[12] The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was founded in 1932 by Ibn Saud; he united the four regions into a single state through a series of conquests beginning in 1902 with the capture of Riyadh, the ancestral home of his family, the House of Saud. The country has since been an absolute monarchy governed along Islamic lines, namely under the influence of Wahhabism.[13] Saudi Arabia is sometimes called “the Land of the Two Holy Mosques” in reference to Al-Masjid al-Haram (inMecca), and Al-Masjid an-Nabawi (in Medina), the two holiest places in Islam http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saudi_Arabia http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4558024,00.html Saudi Arabia told Israel on Tuesday that it must reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians if it is to survive as a nation, and criticised Muslims for being divided and failing to stop the Jewish state attacking its Arab neighbours.

Bahrain, the King, Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa; the head of government is the Prime Minister, Shaikh Khalīfa bin Salman al Khalifa a constitutional monarchy  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahrain .   Bahrain – Kingdom of the Two Seas. Bahrain is a constitutional monarchy headed by the King, Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa; the head of government is the Prime Minister, Shaikh Khalīfa bin Salman al Khalifa, who presides over a cabinet of twenty-five members, where 80% of its members are from the royal family. In a region experiencing an oil boom, Bahrain has the fastest growing economy in the Arab world, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia found in January 2006. Bahrain also has the freest economy in the Middle East according to the 2011 Index of Economic Freedom published by the Heritage Foundation/Wall Street Journal, and is tenth freest overall in the world.

BASRA has a major role in H.G. Wells‘s 1934 future history “The Shape of Things to Come” “where the Iraqi city is at the center of a world state emerging after a collapse of civilization and becomes in effect the capital of the world.” Basra is home to all of Iraq’s six ports; Umm Qasr is the main deep-water port with 22 platforms, some of which are dedicated to specific goods (such as sulfur, seeds, lubricant oil, etc.) The other five ports are smaller in scale and more narrowly specialized. Fishing was an important business before the oil boom. The city also has an international airport, with service into Baghdad with Iraqi Airways—the national airline.

Qatar – Since 1995, Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani has ruled Qatar, seizing control of the country from his father Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani while the latter vacationed in Switzerland. Under Emir Hamad, Qatar has experienced a notable amount of sociopolitical liberalization, including the endorsement of women’s suffrage or right to vote, drafting a new constitution, and the launch of Al Jazeera, a leading English and Arabic news source which operates a website and satellite television news channel.The International Monetary Fund states that Qatar has the highest GDP per capita in the world, followed by Luxembourg. The World Factbook ranks Qatar at second, following Luxembourg.  Doha, is the capital city of Qatar.

America
 –  is not mentioned in the Bible. It would be reasonable to assume then America has no role in the ‘last days’ playing out. Thus, if America were to prosper and continue affecting the governments, politics and wars it would never play out the way God purposes it to be. Therein the results of American politics has well played into the purpose of God. Americans must take joy in knowing the return of our Lord Jesus Christ is imminent.  Pray for strength, courage and each other to endure whatever plays out till our Lord Jesus Christ returns.  http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/09/27/russian-minister-says-us-must-abandon-claim-to-eternal-uniqueness/  America use to be a Christian Country!

EU – 7/5/16 http://www.wnd.com/2016/07/rejected-by-u-k-europeans-to-seek-empire/ Now that the European Union will be losing the United Kingdom as a result of the Brexit vote, concerns are growing that the E.U. is seeking to expand intercontinentally with the aim of establishing an “empire.”
A week after the British vote on June 23, E.U. Vice President Federica Mogherini released a document outlining the union’s plan for expansion, “A Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign And Security Policy,” raising some eyebrows in foreign policy circles.
Not only does the document suggest the possible formation of an E.U. army, it explores expanding the multi-state entity into Asia and Africa.
It even envisions a global government.

UN – 12/30/14  http://www.timesofisrael.com/  PA resolution failed to pass!!!! Nigeria changed their vote!  12/30/14 http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4609565,00.html  The Palestinians claim they have secured a majority of nine votes in the UN Security Council. It also calls for a peace deal within 12 months, “ending Israeli occupation” by the end of 2017. 1/29/15  The French have offered this resolution, “responsibility not to veto” (RN2V) that would apply in situations of mass atrocities.
Since the UN High Level Event that endorsed R2P in 2005, the United States has used the veto three times with reference to Israel and the Occupied Territories. In all likelihood, it will feel the need to do so in the future. despite unanimous endorsement by all UN member states of their individual and collective responsibility to protect (R2P) all people from crimes against humanity. Since 2011, Russia and China have cast four vetoes to block international action in Syria, where more than 200,000 have been killed since the conflict began. Wednesday in Paris, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius repeated [in French] France’s determination to overcome this paralysis by establishing a new international norm to accompany R2P: a “responsibility not to veto” (RN2V) that would apply in situations of mass atrocities. The French proposal includes a trigger—a request by some subset of UN member states (perhaps fifty) to the secretary-general that (s)he (namely the PA and friends) determine whether atrocities are being committed. It also includes an important caveat—and potential Achilles heel: P5 members can still use a veto when they perceive a “vital national interest” at stake. http://www.defenseone.com/politics/2015/01/how-un-members-want-bypass-security-council-veto/103608/?oref=d-channelriver

And Shekh Mohammad bin Abdel Rahman al Thani, the Qatar Emir’s special envoy, expressed support for “a leading role for Egypt in the Arab and Muslim worlds.
