The Times of Israel: In uncompromising address, new president promises to ‘reinforce old alliances,’ quotes Bible on ‘how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.’

“We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones, and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth,” he declared, referring to the Islamist terror threat in language that his predecessor always preferred not to use.         

Opinion: There were more Scripture verses than any inauguration in history, but completely eradicating Islamic terror is not in any man’s job description.

To think differently would be treating terrorism as a recent problem.

Think of King David’s purchase of the threshing floor (temple mount) in 1000 BC as having taken place 500 years before the first terrorist stalked and drew Israelite blood.

Amalek traveled 900 miles to kill. He inherited the hate from his grandfather Esau. Amalek was so treacherous that the old and infirm were some of his favorite targets. When they would fall behind in the Exodus they met with certain death.

Amalek has been found in every generation since (Exodus 17:16.)

Our new president made a point of calling it what it is: radical Islamic terrorism. But when it is finally solved it will be Jesus Christ (Isa. 63:1-3; Rev. 19:13-15)  who does it, because the job is definitely above President Trump’s pay grade.

Bloomberg: It’s tough to be gloomier than billionaire George Soros right now.

America has elected a would-be dictator as president, the European Union is disintegrating, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May won’t last long as her nation prepares to secede from the EU, and China is poised to become an even more repressive society, the investor told Bloomberg Television’s Francine Lacqua from the World Economic Forum in Davos.

“It is unlikely that Prime Minister May is actually going to remain in power,” Soros said. She has a divided cabinet and base and Britons are in denial about the economic impact of Brexit.”

Opinion: Richard the Centurion, one of our readers, sent me a timely heads up on Mr. Soros “the word soros is a Greek word/term for the Hebrew equivalent of a funeral coffin or bier that Jews use to carry their dead to be buried. Can be also interpreted as a container or box of bones.  A case of the walking dead”

How perfect is that? The EU will be very different from the current 28 member countries, according to Bible Prophecy. George, the coffin Soros, sees trouble coming but probably not because of prophecy.

The book of Daniel calls for the EU to be divided into 10 divisions, each with a leader.

“The 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.” Daniel 7:24

What is so fascinating about Daniel is that all 12 chapters are written for this generation:

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” Daniel 12:4

The knowledge that the great prophet speaks of is knowledge of the living breathing word of God. The generation that witnessed the budding of the fig tree (Israel’s rebirth) just turned 70 this year.

  • 7 is the number for completion
  • 70 is the number for Jerusalem

Israel’s will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its rebirth on May 14, 2018.

Psalm 90:10 “The days of our lives are seventy years; And if by reason of strength they are eighty years …”

Interesting times.

CNBC: “The forgotten men and women of this country will be forgotten no longer,” the businessman and former reality television star said in front of the U.S. Capitol on Friday.

Opinion: My favorite part of the speech: President Trump slammed four former presidents, especially Barack Obama, and every member of Congress. Look how much they loved the speech.

“Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left, and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs, and while they celebrated in our nation’s capitol, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changed starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment. It belongs to you. It belongs to everyone gathered here today, and everyone watching, all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration, and this, the United States of America, is your country.”

Washington politicians grew wealthy, while middle class families saw healthcare costs soar and incomes drop.

Two Scripture selections grabbed my attention:

Franklin Graham: “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” 1 Timothy 2:1-6 

Rabbi Marvin Heir “Bless all of our allies around the world who share our beliefs, ‘By the rivers of Babylon, we wept as we remember Zion…If I forget you O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill’ (Psalm 137:5).”

Arutz Sheva: “At pre-inaugural event in Washington, President-elect Donald Trump tells Israel Hayom he will move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, “and I’m not a person who breaks promises” • Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat launches campaign thanking Trump for his support.”

Opinion: I get the distinct feeling that President Trump is going to do everything he promised and fast. Based on his campaign stops, Mr. Trump has energy that belies his 70 years.

On January 21, President Trump’s first day in the Oval Office, he will be 70 years old, 7 months and 7 days old. The number 7 and 70 have been evident for those who pay attention to Bible prophecy.

  • 7 is the perfect number of God
  • 70 is the number connected with Jerusalem

There were 70 nations attending Shimon Peres Funeral in October, and 70 nations at the Paris peace conference last Sunday. That the conference failed to accomplish anything can be attributed solely to Donald J. Trump a modern day Cyrus (Isaiah 45:10) who freed the Israelites from captivity 2500 years ago.

There are just too many signs to ignore.

Look for a blizzard of Executive actions: Obamacare to hit the dust bin of history, the flow on illegal immigration to stop and a president with the courage to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel.

God speed Mr. President
