31 Oct: Friends and Brethren
The final battle to eradicate the Islamic State from Syria / Iraq is now underway and President Trump is sending VP Pence on a Middle East tour to conclude in Jerusalem / Ramallah about December 20th. The purpose of the tour is to put together the final Trump Peace Initiative. Leaked details indicate that a summit of key Middle East nations is to be called and will agree on a Middle East peace plan as previously arranged by the Trump team during its many rounds of talks.
The agreement is to be on setting up a multi phased plan to negotiate other details in a step by step process. Example Phase 1 borders and security, Once that is implemented Phase 2, 3 etc on water resources, trade, refugees, etc etc. Once the summit kicks off the plan, an agreement on borders and security could come very quickly, in fact that phase may be resolved in the actual summit so as to have the immediate approval of the regions nations.
Of course the kicker in all of this is the situation with the Gaza militants, Hezbollah and Syria- Iran, along with the political situation in Israel, and it should be self evident that those issues must be solved if any genuine peace deal is to be agreed.
I have been saying these same things about the need for change in the present regional reality for nine years and have been called a false teacher for my trouble. I have known what was needed for any kind of genuine peace deal as per 1 Thessalonians 5:3, but as I have said many times, I do not know the precise timing of these events.
Nevertheless I have been watching and reporting the news and the flow and ebb of events and it is very clear that we are now very close to a resetting of regional realities towards a genuine dialogue for peace and a peace agreement.
US VP Pence is touring the Middle East during the general Hanukkah period about Dec 12 to the 20th. At the same time Israel is in a political mess and Netanyahu appears to be ready to call elections to seek a broader mandate and to delay any peace summit for as long as he can.
Variables in this equation include:
- The exact date to be set for the summit; will it be set for January or April or some other time?
- When will Netanyahu call an Israeli election? Before the Pence trip or sometime after a summit date has been set so as to take as much time as possible? and how will the approaching corruption indictments against him affect the governing coalition?
- The other big issue is when will the next round of conflict between Israel and the Hamas Military Wing and Hezbollah take place. Right now Hamas is showing remarkable restraint, but they cannot do so for much longer and will have to react to any further provocations.
As you can see, this is a very complex situation with several intertwined threads. Personally I would not be surprised if Israel’s coalition falls in December or any time after that right up through the summer. I will also say that while this could work out by the end of 2018 there are also no guarantees and another year might be needed.
A spring or early summer election call and subsequent war has several distinct advantages:
- It is always easier to fight in the spring after the cold, rainy and foggy Gaza weather has cleared and the snows of Lebanon have receded.
- There would be time for the Syrian situation to settle and for a possible Russian withdrawal from Syria.
- Netanyahu could delay calling an election until close to the summit [if that is politically feasible in the context of the possible indictments]. Such an election call would then postpone any summit date.
It is because of this complexity that I have never published any set, firm dates. What I have done is to watch and report the progress of events, while doing verse by verse studies through the entire Bible, as a firm foundation to be followed up by extensive doctrinal studies.
Many other organizations present studies on many subjects, using only those scriptures [often out of context or from questionable translations] or assumptions that seem to buttress their positions, but we have FIRST studied through the entire Bible as a basis and foundation for further studies.
On November first we complete the Epistles studies and the next day we begin a series of doctrinal studies.
First is a study into “The Lord’s Prayer”, This study will be much more than a “how to pray” study, and will go into detail about things like temptation and the power and glory of God to deliver his children.
Second, a series is scheduled on the Priesthood and Ministry, from the beginning to the Aaronic Priesthood, the Christian Dispensation Ministry and the millennial and main harvest priesthood as well as the resurrected spirit priesthood.
Subjects such as the Levites, Priests, Nazarites, the Sanhedrin, Apostles, Prophets, Teachers and Elders including their functions, duties and essential qualifications, will be studied.
Studies through the Ezra revival, the origins of the Pharisees and Scribes, the Christian ministry and the Ezekiel Temple and Priesthood are planned.
The millennial and main harvest education system through which the resurrected priest-kings will lead humanity into the family of God will also be included in this series.
Third, is a series on The Works of the Flesh.
Fourth, is a series on the Commandments and various laws.
Many of these articles will be quite lengthy and it will take hard work to keep up.
Longer term, a series on the book of Job, followed by a series on the Gospel of Salvation including studies on repentance, baptism, godliness, salvation and more, are in the planning stage.

My dear friends
Now is not the time to get slack! Rather it is a time to redouble our efforts to prepare ourselves to be accounted among the chosen at the resurrection to spirit, and to prepare ourselves to be teachers and guides [priest-kings], leading many to the righteousness of God during the coming millennium and the Main Harvest of humanity!
Please remember me in your prayers, that God would inspire a good understanding and help me to cope with my poor eyesight and provide all that is needed. Also pray diligently that God would help all of his faithful to grow abundantly in his holiness!
