PROPHECY UPDATE NUMBER 61
March 29, 2002
I Thessalonians 5:3,4:  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then
sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and
they shall not escape.  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day
should overtake you as a thief.
38:9-11: 9] Thou shalt ascend and
come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to
cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee. 
Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the
same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt
think an evil thought:  And thou shalt say, I
will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will
go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling
walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
retired from the USAF Branch of the National
Security Agency in the D.C. Complex, there are two things I have known
concerning Middle East Peace of which I am certain: IT WILL COME!IT WILL
NOT COME UNTIL THE TERRORISTS STOP THEIR ACTIVITIES IN ISRAEL
LONG ENOUGH FOR ISRAELITES TO BE LULLED INTO A FALSE SENSE OF SAFETY
I have constantly emphasized that the terrorists are
the factor that determines WHEN peace comes, not IF it comes. In all our updates we have stressed this
point and long before the terrible event of September 11, 2001, we stated
repeatedly: “WATCH THE TERRORISTS.”
The terrorist groups are indeed controlled basically
by Libya, Sudan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon (which is controlled by Syria).
There are, of course, non-government sponsored groups in all the Islamic
countries, notably Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and it was from all terrorist groups
that Osama bin Laden drew his disciples. However, those terrorist groups that affect
Israel are sponsored by Syria, Iran, and Iraq, and a false peace will not come
to the Middle East until these three call off the Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and Hizbollah (Hisbullah).
Additionally, the Palestinian leadership must gain control of the splinter
groups that have broken off their terrorist group Fatah. One thing must be understood, while I say the
aforementioned countries sponsoring the terrorist groups must call them off, it
is very important to understand that they do not absolutely control them. The leaders of the terrorist groups have a
mind and will of their own, and while it is true their sponsoring countries do
supply them with weapons, finances, and martyrs, they must be convinced that by
ceasing their activities long enough for Israel to be lulled into a sense of
security by a brief period of false peace, eventually they will be able to
slaughter Israelis by the millions in a surprise Jihad. All this will take time, but I believe the
terrorist groups will cease their activities in Israel before the year 2003
begins, and peace negotiations will finally bring the prophesied false peace to
The 22 nation
Arab Conference, which just ended in
Beirut, Lebanon, endorsed a Saudi Arabian Peace Plan offering Israel
relations” in exchange for withdrawal from the Golan Heights, the West
and the Gaza Strip, along with a “fair solution” for Palestinian
return to their home country. In our last Prophecy Update Number 60A, we
with this remark concerning the then upcoming Arab Conference: “In the
East anything can happen, and usually does!
This week is going to be an interesting week.” And indeed it was! For
out of it all, for the first time, a 22
Arab nation proposal was put into place for peace in the Middle East.
The obvious fragmentation of the Arab nations
was made plain at Beirut. It has always
been divided on virtually all issues of a political or geopolitical
nature. The reason that the rulers of Egypt and
Jordan did not attend, but rather sent their diplomatic heads, is not
reason they gave for staying home. Since
Lebanon was torn apart by a long civil war, which ended with Syria
controlling her, she has very little control over the terrorist groups
operate within her. In short, her
ability to insure security for those whom the terrorist groups hate is
pitiful. This is the underlying reason
that Egyptian President Mubarak and Jordan’s King
Abdullah II did not attend. They were
afraid of being assassinated by one of the terrorist groups, primarily
the Hizbollah. All the
terrorist groups have hated the leaders of Egypt and Jordan since the
countries made peace with the nation of Israel.
At the last minute the Palestinian Chairman, Yasser
Arafat, could have attended the conference under a set of restrictions
on this travel by Israel, and he cited the restrictions as being the
did not attend. But the real reason he
did not attend was that these restrictions simply gave him an excuse.
His underlying reason was the same as
indicated for Mubarak and Abdullah II, assassination
In 1982, in the well-known “Siege of Beirut,” Arafat pledged to defend
the city to the death. However, as Ariel
Sharon drove toward the city, Yasser loaded himself,
along with many of his followers, and set sail for a new headquarters in
Tunisia. He left many of the terrorists,
and most of the terrorist’s families, in the midst of the Palestinian
camp at the mercy of the advancing armies.
Most believe that Ariel Sharon looked the other way while the Christian
Lebanese Army slaughtered the
inhabitants of Palestinian Refugee Camps.
Whether he did or did not, I cannot say, but that is not the point.
Most Lebanese believe that he did! But while they despise Sharon for
also hate Arafat for sailing away to safety, which opened the door for
slaughter of his fellow countrymen.
Arafat has not returned to Lebanon since the event. Why have I included
information? Because it makes this point
– many Arab leaders fear the terrorists, and they will determine when
peace comes to the Middle East. I
realize that God is in control, and that He alone will determine WHEN!
But I believe that this Saudi Peace proposal
is the document around which a process of Arab national reconciliation,
began early in 2001, will continue.
Since it began Syria, Iran, and Iraq, after many long years of struggle
and war, have draw closer together. The
Arab uniting, behind the plea that the United States not attack Iraq, is
outcropping of this reconciliation process.
During this week’s Arab Conference, as it closed, the top Iraqi and
Saudi delegates entered the hall together in a reconciliatory gesture.
They kissed in front of television cameras to
the applause of the other delegates.
Both these countries have been at odds since Iraq invaded Kuwait in
1990, and then threatened to invade Saudi Arabia. Kuwait and Iraq also
was in order, and agreed to start exchanging prisoners taken in the Gulf
There will still be continuing terrorist attacks in
Israel, and Israel will continue to retaliate against the Palestinians. But I believe that before 2003 dawns the
terrorist group leaders will see the advantage of a temporary false peace, and
will cease their activities in Israel long enough for peace negotiations to
bring it in, and then for it to continue long enough to lull Israel into a
false sense of security. I believe the
stage is being set for 10 Arab nations, for the sake of driving Israel out of
the land, to come together, behind closed doors, in many secret meetings, to
eventually fulfill Revelation 17:16,17.
17:16,17:  And the
ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these
shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall
flesh, and burn her with fire.  For God hath put in their hearts to
fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto
the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
After the beast has made use of the whore of false
religion, by the influence of her false prophet, he will discard her. Even though she is of a different belief than
the antichrist, she will support his cause against Israel, and, for a while,
will reap the political and economic benefits associated with backing him. In the Islamic nations there are thousands of
her churches. In the end the antichrist
will have them all burned to the ground.
The beast comes from Syria, but the false prophet comes from a city that
met certain qualifications in AD 95 when John wrote the book of
Revelation. The city is identified in
the verse following Revelation 17:16,17.
Revelation 17:18:  And the woman which thou sawest
is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of
There was only one city that reigned over the known
world in the days of John. The false
prophet will dominate that same city, and the antichrist will dominate the same
known world, in the last days of this present age. Those ingredients for this to be fulfilled in
the near future are now coming together in Europe and the Middle East. Watch the leadership position in “that great
city” for a change in the immediate future, and watch Syria for either the present leadership to
grow stronger, or for an abrupt change in it.
March 29, 2002
This morning, Friday,
March 29, 2002, a tired group of Israelis, after a long night
Cabinet Meeting, released a decision concerning their future plans as a result
of the recent Passover massacre in Netanya. What follows is basically what they decided
as a future course of action against what they label as Palestinian terrorism
in their country.
1. Mobilization of army
reserves to fully meet all the operational requirements of their planned
actions against terrorism.
2. To conduct a wide-ranging
operation to destroy the Palestinian terror infrastructure in all its parts and
3. To consider Yasser Arafat as the coalition leader of the terrorist
activities against Israel who must, at the present
time, be considered an enemy of Israel, and, as such, will be
Even though this action will cause the carnage in
Israel to continue, it will send a strong message to all the Arab
it would be much to their advantage to stop the terrorist activity in
for a period of time, that is, at least until Israel can be lulled into
security of a false peace. The status
quo is bad news for all the Arab nations, the Palestinians, and Israel.
The boil is coming to a head. Believe it or not, what seems to be
escalating the carnage will actually cause the false peace to come in
The Arab nations have been stuck with the
Palestinian refugees for a long, long time.
They are a financial and political nightmare. Since they know they
cannot defeat Israel, except by a
well-coordinated, surprise Jihad type of blitzkrieg attack, they must
helpless as Israel draws closer and closer to
pushing more and more of the Palestinian population back into their
territories. There are more than a million
and a half Palestinian refugees in Jordan, some 378 thousand in Lebanon,
and about 383 thousand in Syria. There are more than one million in
Israel, and none of the
surrounding Arab countries wants to see them pushed across their borders
What we are now seeing, and will continue to see for
a while, is the storm that is followed by the calm. And, in the end, it will have been one of the
ingredients that led to a false peace in Israel. You will continue to see horror in the
conflict, sword rattling and constant accusations against Israel by the Palestinians,
Islamic nations, and those nations who always seem to be on the side of the
Palestinians. However, in the end, I
believe the terrorist sponsoring nations will finally yield to the obvious and
call off their groups until a false peace is negotiated. I believe they will call them off temporarily
before 2003 dawns, and meaningful peace negotiations will be under way before
the present year ends.
