PRESIDENT OBAMA, ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO DO THIS?

Like many I watched Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speak to Congress.

Some observations.

---------------------------------------------------

CUT OFF

I wasn't sure what Benjamin Netanyahu would say. Some are disappointed that Netanyahu didn't come out forcefully against President Obama.

I'm glad he didn't. By not doing so, Netanyahu gave Obama no reason to retaliate against him or his people, to cut the Israelis off. Details of Obama's Iranian deal seem safe, for now.

The word that I believe that is prophetic that came from Daniel at Prayers for the People (and referenced in yesterday's post), Collapse, Destruction, and our Back against Israel, says the following (emphasis mine):

Israel and the Obama administration will begin to strain ties, the ties will come to a breaking point. The pride of the Obama administration will be the cause of the split and the trigger for America's fall. She (Israel) will act without the consent of the Obama administration, thus causing the prideful administration to cut her off. She (America) will have lost her saving grace; she will be now as another nation who curses the apple of God's eye. This will be the beginning of her tragic collapse.

I wondered yesterday if Netanyahu's speech was the acting 'without consent of the Obama administration.'

Yesterday, while reading at various sites to see what the reactions were to Netanyahu's speech, I found the following that really caught my eye.

There are two reports indicating that in retaliation for Netanyahu speaking to Congress Obama has (1) CUT OFF any further intelligence cooperation with Israel, and (2) indicated on MONDAY that he will CUT OFF any further defense aid to Israel.

That this occurred on Monday indicates that even the DAY BEFORE Netanyahu's speech (and AFTER his arrival here in the United States), President Obama was still threatening Netanyahu not to speak or else. Obama did not even wait to hear what Netanyahu had to say, which means he didn't care. It was enough that Netanyahu defied his wishes, so now it is time to make Netanyahu, thus the Israelis, pay.

“Report: Obama Has Cut Intelligence Cooperation with Israel,” Israel National News, March 2, 2015

Excerpts (emphasis mine):

In response to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s opposition to the nuclear deal he warns threatens Israel’s very existence, US President Barack Obama’s administration has reportedly cut American intelligence cooperation with Israel.

According to senior Israeli sources cited in the report, Obama has not only made clear he will not meet with Netanyahu, but is even refusing to talk with the Israeli prime minister on the telephone during his visit.

The report is not the first indicating a harsh backlash by the Obama administration against Netanyahu’s opposition to the nuclear deal.

On Monday the US denied Israeli reports that it plans to cut defense aid to Israel over the disagreement.

If this is the event and the cutting off that Collapse, Destruction is referencing, then watch the economy.

Collapse, Destruction excerpt:

The economy will soon collapse under the failed bailouts and trillions that were thrown to the swine.

And along the lines of the principle 'as we do unto Israel,' then I would suspect that we may encounter a notable security event here in the U.S. since we 'cut off' intelligence sharing and promised to 'cut off' defense aid.

Something to watch.

-------------------------------------------------

THE SIGN OF MONICA:

Also in yesterday's post, note was made of 'the sign of Monica.'

. . . Monica is a sign, a sign of ruin. Monica is about secret sexual indiscretion and marital infidelity and lying and perjury and scandal and impeachment and disbarment . . .

Three interesting stories occurred yesterday on the SAME DAY as President Obama turned his back on Benjamin Netanyahu, all involving lying, scandal and even ruin.

3. President Obama:

--------------------------------------------------

MUSHROOM CLOUD:

It would seem to me that an interesting sign also occurred yesterday.

Here is a screen capture from Drudge.



Benjamin Netanyahu stated in his speech that the current deal that President Obama is offering the Iranians DOES NOT prevent the Iranians from having a bomb, but PAVES THE WAY for them to have a bomb.

Others agree.

It is interesting, therefore, that Jon McNaughton would release the following painting of President Obama. Please click on to see.

--------------------------------------------

THE ESTHER STORY:

I have posted several links to those who thought there was a parallel between Benjamin Netanyahu coming to speak to Congress and the story of Esther. I've been asked which roles I thought Obama and Netanyahu represent.

In his speech Netanyahu referenced the Esther story and made plain that he believed that the Jews were facing a similar situation with a similar Persian king, so that's clear who the king is.

I believe Benjamin Netanyahu is similar to Mordechai, who learned of a plot to kill the Jews and made the necessary moves to expose it and stop it. It seems to me that President Obama is very similar to Haman. Haman is the one who had a plan back then; Obama is the one who has the plan now.

Haman hated Mordechai, that's why he hatched the plan that he did -- Haman did not feel that Mordechai showed him the honor that he felt he deserved. Obama hates Netanyahu; and like Haman does not feel that Netanyahu (Mordechai) shows him the honor that he believes he is entitled to.

Haman's plan involved the Jews WITHOUT their knowledge. Obama's plan involves the Jews WITHOUT their input. In fact, as noted several days ago, Obama was no longer allowing information about the discussions to be given to the Israelis, AND now we learn that on Monday, Obama CUT OFF any intelligence sharing.

And one additional parallel that perhaps should be noted: wives aren't often mentioned in the Bible, but Haman's wife is. In the story of Esther, Haman consulted his wife about his plan against the Jews. Obama is similar in that he also has a woman he consults, perhaps even more so than his own wife, and that's Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett. On the day of Netanyahu's speech, it was JARRETT not Obama's wife, who offered a statement to the media about what Obama would be doing while Netanyahu was speaking.

Valerie Jarrett: Obama Won’t Watch Netanyahu Speech Because He Is Too Busy, Has A “Full Day”…

We know from the story of Esther that Haman was exposed and hung from the gallows, by the PERSIAN king. It is highly unlikely that will happen to Obama.

Oh, wait!

He actually did -- on Iran's Revolution Day. Obama was paraded thru the streets in effigy, HANGING FROM GALLOWS.

Interesting timing, no?

Gesenius gives us an interesting note about the meaning of Haman's name in Sanskrit -- it is associated with the planet Mercury.

Mercury, as we have seen in past posts, is the Roman form of Hanuman, the Hindu monkey god that Obama carries in his pocket.

Overall, it did not end well for Haman. It did for Mordechai.

-------------------------------------------

MY PERSPECTIVE ON THE SPEECH:

The Full Profound Speech From Israeli PM Netanyahu

For me, Benjamin Netanyahu's speech can be summed up in one question. Benjamin Netanyahu laid out his case then asked President Obama (albeit without specifically addressing President Obama) with this question:

Are you sure you want to do this?

-----------------------------------

Other perspectives on Benjamin Netanyahu's speech:

From Ralph Peters:

“I thought it was pretty damn sad that the American people have to hear the truth from the prime minister of Israel about Islamist fanaticism and the struggles we’re seeing in the Middle East,” Peters said. “And our own president won’t even call Islamist terrorism ‘Islamist terrorism.’ Martha, there is no question the vituperative, vicious Democratic reaction to the speech … was because Benjamin Netanyahu told the truth and Obama has not. Netanyahu called him out. And this is a president who still has levelled with the American people about why he is doing the deal, what the deal contains — the Iranian nuke deal — and what the threat is and it is not. So again, I thought Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech was needed. It was masterful. It was honest. It was inspiring. And Democrats in response, including the president, acted like snitty, bitchy high school girls.”

Artist's Impression Of US-Iran Negotiations

--------------------------------------

Interesting story occurring at the EXACT same time as the arrival of Benjamin Netanyahu to the US is the news of the painting of Bill Clinton and the Monica Lewinsky reference it contains.

Artist Who Painted Bill Clinton’s Official Portrait Says He Included Secret Monica Lewinsky Reference…

Let's flashback to a post I wrote July 17, 2012 - THE SIGN OF MONICA

Look at how the Monica Lewinsky scandal came to light because it occurred just after BILL CLINTON met BENJAMIN NETANYAHU at the White House. Now we have Benjamin Netanyahu getting ready to speak to Congress and now this 'controversy' about a Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky painting has become a scandal at the SAME TIME.

It is an important sign when taken in light of what all Monica Lewinsky represents as noted below.

Excerpt (emphasis mine):

The meeting between President Bill Clinton and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House was an effort to restart peace talks that had been stalled for a year. Clinton’s hope? That Netanyahu would retreat, even a little, from the West Bank.

The date - January 20, 1998. The next day the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke. Faced with reporters, Clinton adamantly denied that anything had happened between him and the White House intern -- “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

Two days later, on January 22, Clinton welcomed PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat to the White House, and through a public press conference, both men exerted pressure on Netanyahu for concessions. That same day, Clinton again had to fend off questions from media about Lewinsky. By the next day, he was attempting to reassure his Cabinet that nothing inappropriate had happened.

It was too little, too late. Several key people close to Clinton, including his personal secretary, were being subpoened to appear before a grand jury. And Lewinsky was already in negotiations for a possible immunity agreement. Unlike Nixon, evidence damning to Bill Clinton wasn’t caught on tape but on a blue dress. The gig was up -- everybody knew then he had been lying.

. . . Monica is a sign, a sign of ruin. Monica is about secret sexual indiscretion and marital infidelity and lying and perjury and scandal and impeachment and disbarment . . .

ISRAEL UPDATES - OUR BACK AGAINST ISRAEL

As Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prepares to speak before Congress, there are many who are fasting and praying for him and the Jewish people.

Pray for Netanyahu

Here is another good comparison between Netanyahu's trip to the U.S. and the story of Esther.

Between Esther and Congress

In the above article, author Emily Amrousi notes this about Mordechai:

By the way, Mordechai also came under attack back then: He was "held in high esteem by many of his brethren" (Esther 10:3). As it is written, "many" of his brethren, not "all" of them. There were always those who put on sour faces and harbored bitter hearts. Not much has changed.

Now look at what Dianne Feinstein of California has said.

Senator Feinstein Slams Netanyahu: ‘He Doesn’t Speak For Me'

Feinstein even has the scowl that matches the 'sour faces and . . . bitter hearts.' (If you are not sure what I am talking about then go back to the link above 'He Doesn't Speak for Me,' and actually click on it.)

And look where John Kerry will be today. Yep, meeting with Israel's sworn enemy, Iran.

Kerry in Geneva today for a not-so-subtle snubbing of Netanyahu as he arrives in America.

Look at Boston:

New round of snow could push Boston to season record

As article after article below mention that 'strain' between Obama and Netanyahu, it is time for a flashback:

Prayers for the People - Collapse, Destruction, our back against Israel

Excerpt (emphasis mine):

Israel and the Obama administration will begin to strain ties, the ties will come to a breaking point. The pride of the Obama administration will be the cause of the split and the trigger for America's fall. She (Israel) will act without the consent of the Obama administration, thus causing the prideful administration to cut her off. She (America) will have lost her saving grace; she will be now as another nation who curses the apple of God's eye. This will be the beginning of her tragic collapse.

This prophetic word was written February 5, 2009. President Obama had only been sworn into office less than 3 weeks. At that time, no one knew (a) that the decades-long ties with Israel would be strained to the breaking point under this President, and (b) just how much 'pride' this President was capable of.

Now we know.

And something else we did not know on February 5, 2009 -- that President Obama intended to replace Israel with Iran as the US's Middle East ally. It has been made abundantly clear to the US public since January 12, when we all learned that House Speaker John Boehner had invited Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress and the White House immediately began their deep-throated growls of displeasure that unbeknownst to the American public, President Obama had tied his foreign policy legacy to an 'historic' deal with Iran. Obama intended to make this deal the 'signature' policy of his second term, securing for himself, in his mind at least, a legacy in the history books.

President Obama has made at least one glaring mistake. He has assumed that because he panders to his base that other leaders do the same. The Iranians want to wipe Israel off the map and send death to us Americans. That's not pandering. When someone wants you dead, you should believe they mean it.

In the excerpt above from Collapse, Destruction and our back against Israel, Daniel writes 'She (Israel) will act without the consent of the Obama administration, thus causing the prideful administration to cut her off.'

Benjamin Netanyahu is appearing tomorrow before Congress, and he is doing so 'without the consent of the Obama administration.' Will we see this 'prideful administration' cut her off?  Will our lot be cast?  Or is that event yet to happen?

Watching and praying with you.

A NATION UNDER JUDGMENT? California, Borders, Drought, Earthquakes

In previous posts I have written showing how the curses of Deuteronomy 28 are playing out in the headlines of America's news organizations. Again, I appreciate the positive feedback from readers about connecting headlines to curses. I've decided I will no longer be compacting all the headlines in 3 or 4 long posts; instead, I will be posting shorter posts here and there to make for easier reading. Here are some more of the recent headlines that have appeared since my last post in December.

Excerpt from my July post:

When a nation is under judgment, Deuteronomy 28 spells out how one can tell. We read of multiple examples in the early chapters of Exodus as the Pharaoh that opposed Jehovah came under judgment for his defiance against God's Will. Because of Pharaoh, food sources were destroyed, Egypt was littered with dead and dying livestock and animals, homes and public buildings were destroyed or heavily damaged because that's what judgments do -- they destroy and dismantle a nation's infrastructure and the economy. David Wilkerson wrote in several of his books the different signs of judgment upon a nation.

DEC 2: A NATION UNDER JUDGMENT? JULY - OCT, PART 1

JULY 16: A NATION UNDER JUDGMENT? MORE SIGNS, INCLUDING THE SIGN OF JONAH

FEB. 11: A NATION UNDER JUDGMENT? 9 SIGNS

When a nation is under judgment, significant events take place at the borders.

David Wilkerson, Racing Toward Judgment (pg 67):

God's judgments have always begun at the "entrance gates" of nations, cities, and empires: "A cry of alarm will begin at the farthest gate . . . " (Zephaniah 1:10 LB). This is representative of the seaports, harbors, and centers of influx. It is significant that most of the Old Testament prophets warned of judgment beginning at the coasts. . . . Jeremiah, another prophet, warned nations that God's judgments begin as whirlwinds on the coasts of their lands, then spreading from one end to the other; (emphasis mine)

CALIFORNIA:

DROUGHT -- THERE IS DROUGHT. NO RAIN. IT RAINS ON ONE CITY BUT NOT ANOTHER.

David Wilkerson, Racing Toward Judgment (pg 70):

Long, tragic drought. Rivers and streams will dry up. Water tables will no longer support irrigation systems. Crops will wither and die in the fields. . . . drought will spread and cover thousands of square miles. . . . There is no such thing as an accidental failure of crops. There are no secondary causes. It is God who shuts off the supply of food. God holds the key to clouds. All the water supply is in His hand. He measures every drop of rain and sends it to its chosen destination.

The same God who judged ancient Egypt by drought . . . will also judge America with severe drought: ". . . Thou are the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in day of indignation" (Ezekiel 22:24).

ISRAEL, RICE AND KERRY

In light of yesterday's post and the parallels to Netanyahu and Esther and Obama and Xerxes, it is disturbing to see that on Iran's Revolution Day, that, and I quote directly here, that an effigy of President Obama was paraded thru the streets, depicted as 'hanging from the gallows.'

15 Photos From Iran's Revolution Day 2015 Demonstrations You'll Never See In Legacy Media

For those that don't read the Bible, (and I have a few readers of this blog who don't) that was Haman's fate in the book of Esther.

This next article is probably striking a little bit of fear in the hearts of some WH officials:

Report: Saudi Arabia May Aid Israeli Strike on Iran in Exchange for Progress With Palestinians

However I doubt the next article is; it's probably being played off as the Iranians 'just playing to their base':

Iran Bombs Replica Of US Aircraft Carrier During Military Exercise

And also showing no fear is Susan Rice.

Susan Rice: Netanyahu Visit 'Destructive'

Bill Koenig notes that Rice may be on a collision course with the Holy God of Israel.



But by no means was John Kerry going to let Susan Rice go baying against Netanyahu alone . . . absolutely not. Though not as skillful as Rice, Kerry did try to look as every bit as tough as Rice.

John Kerry Blasts Netanyahu's Criticism of Pending Iran Nuke Deal

But if John Kerry is on any collision course it's his usual collision course with cluelessness. Destruction is going on in a key city in his home state and this guy will never put two and two together. One can only sigh.

Boston tops 100 inches of snow

Interesting that in the above 'John Kerry blasts Netanyahu' article, the relationship between Obama and Netanyahu is described as 'icy.'

But here is the REAL stunner. Look at this title:

Kerry: Netanyahu Was Wrong About Iraq–Why Trust Him on Iran?

Excerpt:

Secretary of State John Kerry told the House Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday that the U.S. should be wary of trusting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s warnings on Iran, because Netanyahu had also backed the Iraq War (emphasis mine).

Israel did what allies do - back each other up, so when the US went to war in Iraq, Israel backed us up. Only this administration would now scold Israel claiming that that previous support now shows POOR JUDGMENT on the part of the Israelis.

Wait, what!?

Excuse me, I need a minute.

I'm back.

Yeah, just re-read that. I can't wrap my head around it either.
