The beginnings and ending of temporal entities such as the ones mentioned, the Egyptians, the Romans, the Nationalist Socialists of the German Third Reich have one thing in common, and not in the cyclical sense as being proffered previously. They all had a hand in wasting their power to a Biblical end, that of engaging in circumstances with the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob's heritage and paying the ultimate price, coming under the judgment of the Eternal Sovereign of Israel.

In the fulfillment of the last of the 'Diaspora' prophetic we find that Israel's promise to remain in the land in this last era is as sure as the fact that Israel IS in the land according to the Biblical imperatives that are the validations of the world's insecurities. This is about to be tested again.

The hue and the cry of the 'unrest' is not about promoting democracy in Muslim-aligned lands, but about aligning the forces necessary to try, yet again, to force the hand of the true defense of Israel, her eternal Almighty Sovereign, the reason why no one can ever depose Israel ever again. Sure, Israel, unsure of her own place in destiny by the looks of the agnostic leftist sector of Israel's government and unbelieving society, will be looking over her shoulders as the fulfillment of the remaining prophecies fall into place; then even the unsure will recognize their error and watch for what Abraham was promised.

The repetitions alluded to by the 'cyclical' rising and falling of empires are the various and several attempts in history to rebuild 'Babylon,' the empire of ancient days in which the arrogance of mere humanity try over and over again the senseless idea that mankind can rule itself, finding over and over again that only by the power of the Almighty eternal of Whom it is written in the Hebrew Holy Scriptures does mankind survive, that if left completely to its own resources, mortal humanity would have indeed left the planet to the animals, just as the Adversary would like it to be.

No, for Israel, there are no more 'cycles,' only the implementation of its promised millennial kingdom, coming soon to a Middle Eastern neighborhood. Turkey was served up once before; but this time Turkey is going to be pushed along with others into a maelstrom of judgment because, as it so happens, evidently too few can read what it is written and leave well enough alone: "Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness, You who seek the LORD: Look to the rock [from which] you were hewn, And to the hole of the pit [from which] you were dug. Look to Abraham your father, And to Sarah [who] bore you; For I called him alone, And blessed him and increased him." For the LORD will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the LORD; Joy and gladness will be found in it, Thanksgiving and the voice of melody. "Listen to Me, My people; And give ear to Me, O My nation: For law will proceed from Me, And I will make My justice rest As a light of the peoples. My righteousness [is] near, My salvation has gone forth, And My arms will judge the peoples; The coastlands will wait upon Me, And on My arm they will trust. Lift up your eyes to the heavens, And look on the earth beneath. For the heavens will vanish away like smoke, The earth will grow old like a garment, And those who dwell in it will die in like manner; But My salvation will be forever, And My righteousness will not be abolished. ……….But I [am] the LORD your God, Who divided the sea whose waves roared--The LORD of hosts [is] His name. And I have put My words in your mouth; I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, That I may plant the heavens, Lay the foundations of the earth, And say to Zion, 'You [are] My people.' "Awake, awake! Stand up, O Jerusalem, You who have drunk at the hand of the LORD The cup of His fury; You have drunk the dregs of the cup of trembling, [And] drained [it] out……..Thus says your Lord, The LORD and your God, [Who] pleads the cause of His people: "See, I have taken out of your hand The cup of trembling, The dregs of the cup of My fury; You shall no longer drink it. But I will put it into the hand of those who afflict you, Who have said to you, 'Lie down, that we may walk over you.' And you have laid your body like the ground, And as the street, for those who walk over."
