Hi, Tovey.

I agree with you. I'm only sorry that my computer keeps jerking me around and erasing what I type. Let me at least post what I've found concerning the current state of nuclear proliferation:

22 Dec. 2016

On Thursday, Trump tweeted: "The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes."

It was unclear what prompted the comment on a medium that favours brevity over context. But it came on the same day that also President Vladimir Putin addressed Russia's nuclear...

In May, (Trump) suggested he could support South Korea, Japan and Saudi Arabia arming themselves with nuclear weapons for their own defence. "It's going to happen anyway," he told CNN. "It's only a question of time."

The key words are "IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN ANYWAY", which is true. I might add, that Taiwan also had better develop its own nuclear program quickly, before Red China tries to beat them to the punch and wipe them off the map.

All this is setting the stage for Zechariah 14, which must happen at least seven years after Ezekiel 39. The latter could happen as early as next summer, 2017; and the former may happen in 2024. Concerning the Ezekiel prophecy, which centers around Turkish President Erdogan (of "Erdo-Gog", which one might call the Sultan who fancies himself as the great Calif of Sunni Muslims), his mouth is very much on the move:


He is announcing beforehand, his intentions to overrun Iraq and Syria -- just as Hitler announced his intentions plainly in Mein Kampf. At the moment, he doesn't have much to show for it on the ground; but as the Bible says of this man with the open mouth,

Ezekiel 38:
[4] And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
[5] Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
[6] Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
[7] Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
[8] After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel...

29 days left until Inauguration Day.

Shalom shalom :-)
