"Middle East Closer to Full War - Second Stage of October 7 Coming"


 
Hello John and Doves,
 
The Middle East is on a knife edge - never seen such a dangerous time for Israel.
 
Second State of October 7:
 
"Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said Tuesday that Israel has identified that Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas are aiming to take advantage of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and turn it into "the second stage of October 7, and ignite the ground."
 
"Speaking during an assessment at the IDF Central Command, Gallant said, "Hamas's main goal is to take Ramadan, with an emphasis on the Temple Mount and Jerusalem, and turn it into the second phase of their plan that began on October 7.  This is the main goal of Hamas, it is being amplified by Iran and Hezbollah."
 
Gallant warned that Israel must not allow the convergence of combat fronts - Gaza/Hamas and Lebanon/Hezbollah.
 
The National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir wants to "impose restrictions on the West Bank Palestinians and prevent them from praying at the Temple Mount during Ramadan and is even reportedly pushing for banning Arab Israeli citizens below the age of 70 from visiting the site amid the month of fasting.....Hundreds of thousands of Muslims crowd the site each Ramadan as religious fervor is heightened."
 
These restrictions during Ramadan could "spark an angry backlash among Arab Israelis and play into the hands of Hamas."
 
"...the biden administration is highly concerned that Ben Gvir will try and spark tensions at the Temple Mount during Ramadan next month, in what Washington fears could drag the flashpoint issue of Jerusalem into the ongoing Middle East conflict that it's seeking to contain."

Maybe the people in the White House should read the Bible - it will tell them exactly what's going on over there - God is in total control of everything that happens to Jerusalem - He wrote His name there.  It is prophesied that Jerusalem will be a burdensome stone and a cup of trembling.  Nothing happens outside of God's will.
 
Zechariah told us about Israel and Jerusalem:  "This is the burden of the word of the Lord concerning Israel.  Thus declares the Lord, who stretches out the heavens and lays the foundation of the earth, who forms the spirit of man within him:  "Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both of Judah and against Jerusalem." Zech 12:2
 
"Hamas leader has called on Palestinians to march to Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque at the start of Ramadan next month in a move that could threaten hostage negotiations and a cease-fire deal in Gaza....this will likely set the stage of an Israel-Palestinian clash in Jerusalem come March 10.."
 
"National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir has warned that Hamas supporters will likely use the prayer event during Ramadan to incite violence in Israel.  "The entry of tens of thousands of haters in a victory celebration on the Temple Mount is a security threat to Israel", Ben Gviir said as he called for greater scrutiny at Al-Aqsa."

I agree with Gvir.  And seeing Muslims on the Temple Mount celebrating and praying to their pagan god is hard to stomach - but it's all going to go down in God's timing.  Jerusalem is His city.  And I know that there will be a New Jerusalem that comes down out of Heaven - God's eternal city.  Once we get through all of this....
 
Ramadan 2024 - March 11 - April 9?
 
"...the actual date of commencement of Ramadan 2024 is subject to the sighting of the moon....Ramadan is expected to begin on Monday, March 11, 2024 (according to Saudi Arabia) and will end on Tuesday, April 9, 2024.  Eid al Fitr 2024 is expected to be celebrated on Wednesday, April 10, 2024."

April 9 is one day after the total solar eclipse over America.  If the new moon sighting is on March 10 - the end of Ramadan will be on the day of the eclipse.  Just interesting to note...
 
What Gallant said, is very ominous:  "... that Israel has identified that Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas are aiming to take advantage of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and turn it into "the second stage of October 7, and ignite the ground."  Will the month of Ramadan include a 'go signal' for jihadis in the U.S.?  They are waiting for something...
 
Add this to Gallant moving towards a military draft.  And Netanyahu 'vowed' that "the attack into Rafah and the end of the war (in Gaza) will occur within weeks."  Netanyahu said that the IDF will "soon enter the Palestinian city of Rafah...to eliminate some of the last remaining Hamas units." 
Netanyahu says Rafah assault 'has to be done' to end the war quickly
 
And an invasion of Rafah is 'the last straw' for some concerning Natanyahu.  We'll see how this goes.

Some think this 'ending the war in Gaza' is so Israel can start the war with Hezbollah in Lebanon.
 
Something BIG is coming.
 
Things are moving quickly - keep an eye on Jerusalem!
 
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
 
Maranatha!
