President Trump’s Peace Plan And The Corona Virus
Everybody has written and talked much about the corona virus :
- originated from bats transferred to humans;
- came from Chinese fish market;
- American soldiers got infected and spread it to other places;
- The NOW/OWG folks spread the virus;
- Man created it in a laboratory.
I am going to find something good that happened as a consequence of that virus:
- There was again quality family time, fathers with their sons, mothers with their daughters, talking with each other, playing games, watching TV together.
- No one could run off to do their “own” thing. They rediscovered the preciousness of time together what social media, the smart phone, games destroyed almost entirely unless they lived somewhere in the wilds of Alaska.
- Marriages that had cooled off warmed up again; husband could not go off with his secretary nor she with the neighbor. Many rediscovered why they married in the first place and fell in love again. The year 2020 will be another baby-boom year – globally. LOL
- In Israel, due to a second virus wave, Israelis cannot leave the country for summer vacations in Turkey, Greece and Italy. Therefore, they are spending their money inside Israel. Eilat at the Red Sea and places around the Sea of Galilee and the beaches along the Mediterranean are packed with Israeli vacationers. Hotels are filling up, while no tourists from abroad are allowed in.
- We all have become closer because of distancing from each other to at least 2 meters, and wearing masks.
- Palestinian hospitals depend on Israel for the tests and medication, masks and ventilators. The virus has spread the worst among them, in particular during their Ramadan holiday. More Palestinians have learned that their beliefs of Israel being an evil occupier and “Nazis” are lies and that instead Israel is a help and provider of their urgent needs.
Now about the Trump “peace” plan, that “deal of the century.” It has brought division among Israelis and Palestinians. But then, what else is new? As a rule, Palestinians are mostly divided, from one extreme to the other extreme. And Israelis? Anything and everything brings division among a people gathered together from so many different countries, cultures, ways of life and traditions. It is a miracle that Israel is still a cohesive nation.
Just imagine a Russian Jew and an Ethiopian Jew seeing eye to eye on something. Imagine a secular Jew and an ultra- orthodox Jew seeing eye to eye. Why, not too long ago a marriage between an Ashkenazy Jew and a Sephardic Jew was regarded and treated as a “mixed” marriage even though both were Jews. A Jew who was raised in New York city does not at all see things as a Jew who grew up in Morocco. Hence, disagreements and differences are the norm in Israel’s daily life, all the way to the Knesset, where members are frequently seen and heard yelling at each other, becoming red in the face.
But the moment Israel comes under attack, especially as happened during the Gulf wars, or when rockets fall on our towns and civilians, suddenly all Israelis turn into “Am Echad,” one people, and all differences are forgotten. Neighbors are there for neighbors as we help each other. During the coronavirus, food packages were passed out like never before, and charitable organizations helped more than ever, even paying bills as 1 million people lost their jobs.
What About Trump’s “Deal Of The Century?”
So, what about Trump’s peace plan? Well, most saw it as something good, just as they saw Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem and moving the US Embassy up to Jerusalem. The annexation of the Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria to Israel proper was just another such “good deed” initiated by Trump. Hence, most did not see the inevitable “tsunami” that would follow this annexation, namely the creation of a Palestinian State. They were blinded to that danger as though it weren’t part of Trump’s plan.
However, Israeli generals and most of the settlers see the danger – a terror state right next door, side by side with Israel can only mean trouble. Even American generals saw the danger, as well as intercessors and prophets, our eyes being opened by Scripture and the Holy Spirit.
A neighboring Palestinian state means terrorists entering Israel, murdering young and old, male and female Jewish civilians anywhere, then fleeing back to safety in their own State with Israel prevented from searching for them as was the case in the autonomy.
Rockets would fly day and night on the settlements just meters or a few kilometers away, even upon Jerusalem. A “demilitarized” Palestinian state is a joke as they have and will use the monies from the EU and UN for digging more tunnels to smuggle weapons and coming into Israel proper.
As I was contemplating what a sovereign Palestinian state would mean for Israel, especially being connected by some sort of “corridor” with Gaza and therefore Hamas, I understood something – this will be the “Time of Jacob’s Troubles.”
Christian teachers say this time will be worse than the Nazi Holocaust, with only one third of Israel surviving. According to their interpretation, G-d is a real sadist because first He gathers His people back into their own Land, has them rebuild and replant the barren and swampy land, and then wacks them even worse than before.
This does not compute with me, this being the G-d I know closely and love above all else. NEVER EVER WOULD HE DO SUCH A THING! The Nazi Holocaust, a carefully devised, detailed plan to annihilate a whole people – G-d’s covenant people – into non existence, was written in Daniel 12:1 “And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since the beginning of nations until then…” For sure, there never ever has been such a carefully planned annihilation since the beginning of nations, nor shall it be ever again.
Yes, Israel has been persecuted, murdered, carried off into exile, plundered, tortured – you name it. But there never ever has been anything like the Nazi Holocaust since the beginning of nations, which I believe is referred to in Ezekiel 35:5 – “Because you cherished perpetual enmity, and gave over the people of Israel to the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, at the time of their final punishment… “
This prophecy speaks of Mt. Seir which is Esau, it having been his domain. Modern day “Esau’s land” is Saudi Arabia [Saud is Esau in Arabic]. However, according to Judaism, Esau stands for Roman Catholic Christianity which has contested Jacob’s right of inheritance and being God’s chosen one since the beginning. My point is that G-d was through with punishing His people for all their transgressions, as written in the New International Version: “… at the time of their calamity, the time their punishment reached its climax..”
“Calamity” refers also to disaster, catastrophe, mishap, misfortune, tragedy, blow. The Holocaust was definitely a catastrophe and tragedy.
“Final” = last, concluding, closing, ending, ultimate, finishing;
“Punishment” = Penalty, chastisement, castigation, reprimand, retribution, penance, price
“Climax” = Culmination, apex, peak, height
According to the news, it seems that the majority of America’s evangelical Christians support the annexation plan. Again, the blinders work because they see Jews finally being restored to their ancient lands, especially Judea and Samaria.
Will There Be A Palestinian State?
However, what they fail to see is the calamity that a Palestinian State would be for Israel. We can be fairly sure there will be such a state due to a ‘military alliance of nations coming against Jerusalem’ to give half the city as the capital of the Palestinian State.
See…Zechariah 12:2-6 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
2 “Lo, I am about to make Jerusalem a cup of reeling to all the peoples round about; it will be against Judah (my comment: as this would be part of the Palestinian State) also in the siege against Jerusalem. 3 On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it shall grievously hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will come together against it. 4 On that day, says the Lord, I will strike every horse with panic, and its rider with madness. But upon the house of Judah I will open my eyes, when I strike every horse of the peoples with blindness. 5 Then the clans (settlements) of Judah shall say to themselves, ‘The inhabitants of Jerusalem have strength through the Lord of hosts, their G-d.’ 6 “On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a blazing pot in the midst of wood, like a flaming torch among sheaves; and they shall devour to the right and to the left all the peoples round about, while Jerusalem shall still be inhabited in its place, in Jerusalem.”
Zechariah 14:12 (RSV)
12 “And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will smite all the peoples that wage war against Jerusalem: their flesh shall rot while they are still on their feet, their eyes shall rot in their sockets, and their tongues shall rot in their mouths” (my comment: i.e., it will be biological, chemical weapons).
This will be WW V, the final war, at which time Yeshua will return, His feet touching down on the Mt. of Olives (Zech. 14:3-4).
In the Book of Revelation we are told in Ch. 16:13-16 (RSV; part of the 6th bowl)
12 The sixth angel poured his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east (my comment: already several Far Eastern Nations have formed an association called ASEAN, with China, Japan, South Korea, India as “candidate” states to join the bloc. Eventually, they will form into a power bloc that can compete with other blocs. They will be the “Kings of the East” mentioned in Rev.16:12). 13 And I saw, issuing from the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet, three foul spirits like frogs; 14 for they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty. 15 (“Lo, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is he who is awake, keeping his garments that he may not go naked and be seen exposed!”) 16 And they assembled them at the place which is called in Hebrew Armageddon (see https://ortzion.org/prophecy_type/gods-unchangeable-calendar/; scrolling down to page 136, to the page entitled, THE GALILEE).
Yasser Arafat had already claimed that the Galilee should be part of the Palestinian State since there were more Palestinians living there than Jews. Mount Megiddo is a hill overlooking the Jezreel valley and the Galilee. Armageddon is not going to be the last war but WW IV. It would appear that the military alliance of nations and war described in Ezekiel 38 are the same assembling at Mount Megiddo coming against Israel “to take spoils.”
While this is WW III – Revelation 9:13-16 Revised Standard Version (RSV):
13 Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before G-d, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels were released, who had been held ready for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, to kill a third of mankind (2.3 billion). 16 The number of the troops of cavalry was twice ten thousand times ten thousand (200,000,000); I heard their number. China is part of the Far Eastern Alliance [kings of the East] and has this many troops.
Hence, these Scriptures speak about 2 world wars to be fought against Israel by an international military alliance of nations for the purpose of taking the Galilee and Jerusalem. This Alliance might unite NATO member countries as well as countries of the Islamic Alliance, possibly even some of the ASIA member nations, a huge, gigantic force, which might explain the possibility of Revelation 14:20 [NASV]:
And the wine press was trodden outside the city, and blood came out from the wine press, up to the horses’ bridles, for a distance of two hundred miles..
We may assume that Israel will indeed be divided for the sake of creating a Palestinian State which will run from Hebron to Gaza. How? Only G-d knows. It is unthinkable that such a hostile corridor should run straight through the land of Israel to Hamas land.
Unprecedented natural disasters have hit almost the entire globe, just like the covid-19 which is still not under control. There are huge floods, horrific landslides, unusual snake and locust attacks, snowstorms and hailstorms out of season in Italy, heavy storms in various places and massive fires, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes, while violence tears at America’s very foundations, toppling her monuments (my comment: although the United States is not G-d’s covenant people, millions of them and engrafted former Gentiles [Christians] live within this nation. To them apply the Ten Commandments G-d, one of which is not to make any images of both men and beast – a commandment carefully kept by Islam -; yet there are plenty of such mages throughout the land).
Are these warnings by the Holy One of Israel to a world steeped in immorality and idolatry, violence and drugs? To a world whose majority sides with the enemies of Israel, defying G-d’s choice of this small obstinate, backslidden people, whom He loves with such faithfulness that “mountains may depart and hills be removed but His love shall not depart from them” as He swore by an oath in Isaiah 54.
Many focus daily on the news, all of which center on wicked, evil and terrible things. What believers in G-d and in His Son should focus on now is the Book of Revelation, and what G-d’s [biblical] prophets predicted for the end times. It is vital to know G-d’s plans and purposes so as not to be deceived, led astray, fear, worry, fret, be anxious nor fail in faith and trust.
Let us abide in Yeshua and His words in us, and seek G-d’s counsel and walk in it, to be safe and faithful, even unto prison or death.
Yours in Him,

 I have been frequntly asked why I place a hyphen “-” in the word G-d. The reason, first of all, is the Jewish practice of identifying which G-d is meant, namely the only living, eternal G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, whose name according to the vowel signs in Torah is YEHOVAH andnot YAWEH nor YAH (as though one could give G-d’s name a shortcut like from Timothy to Tim, and from William to Bill and from Robrt to Bob. Is G-d a man to so shorten His Name? We Jews out of respect for His most holy, unutterable Name either say “HaShem” – everybody knowing Who is meant – or Adonai). Many claim that their god is the same like the G-d of the Jews, and that even Arabic Christians call G-d, “Allah.” Whatever the names of the gods of other religions, the G-d of the Jews is not Allah, nor is that His Name. Hence, in order that there is no misunderstanding, I place the hyphen in the word G-d so it is absolutely clear to Whom I refer.
