For all Don's publically accessible research material go to:
For the purpose of this blog, the "Middle East" is defined as stretching from Tunisia to Afghanistan and from Astana in Kazakhstan to the South Sudan. One might even rope-in Congo Kinshasha into that vast volatile and vexatious group.
Firstly, a brief explanatiom of the essays listed across to the right hand side of this Blog-page. These essays explain why we are re-writing the ancient histories of that vast region to properly explain why this region is in such trouble.
This blog has four of these 'background' essays for the reader to view. They are dated "2008 (2), 2009 (1) and 2011 (1)":
(1) In 2008, I published "Reconstructing Ancient Egyptian History". That 'essay' has been updated over the years and is regarded as current (April 2017) by the author until other evidence arises to necessitate edition;
(2) Also in 2008, I published "Queen Hatshepsut is Queen Sheba". That 'essay' has also been updated over the years and is regarded as current (April 2017) by the author until other evidence arises to necessitate edition;
"Key Events" examines current day issues from these perspectives as well as from others such as the implications emanating from Adam's fatal decision to consume (Hebrew 'acol, 'a all' or '@') from the Tree of Knowledge (Science and Technology). "Key Events" also uses the results of revised chronology outlined in the three essays written in 2008 (2) and 2009 (1) as noted above. The events in the countries listed above are almost certainly a pre-amble to the Ezekiel 38:1 to 39:16 prophecy about one of the two Gog-Magog invasions that threaten Israel according to Biblical Prophecy (Ezekiel then Revelation).
In January 2017, in Paris, seventy nations resolved to declare that Jerusalem should be an "International city". The irony here is that in Biblical times the nations went to Jerusalem to witness each year the slaughter of seventy bulls for the sins of each nation. In the Millennial Mesianic Kingdom in the probably-near future the nations will once again come to Jerusalem to observe the Festival of Tabernacles (revamped for the Messianic-Millennial Kingdom); or else they will not get rain that year.
While the nations currently conspire to frustrate God's Plan for the nation of Israel, and befpre it repents of its decision regarding Jesus of Nazareth in AD 30, God is quietly lining many nations up for punishment. Their Secular, Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Protestant, Hindu, Muslim, Confucian, Communist and Buddhist leaders are blissfully unaware of what the One True God plans to do! On 18 January 2017, Hamas, Fatah and a jihadist organisation resolved in Moscow to re-unite perhaps encouraged by the seventy nations' resolution in Paris on 15 January 2017. Muslims too are ranged against Israel. But world developments at present suggest the other groups against Israel are allying to crush, reduce, sanitize and re-educate Islamicists. Hindus, Bhuddists, Secularists, Roman Catholics etc, et al, have no 'love' for Islam. As Confucian-Communist China and Eastern Orthodox / Secular- Russia continue to block resolutions in the UN Security Council aimed at censoring Syria's Assad for war crimes and chemical weapon usage, one has to ask if there is not some sort of hidden agenda in there (at the UN) aimed at sanitizing Islam! Of course, since Westphalia in 1648 the world governance system has been sanitizing genuine Bible-based Christianity.
We await two trumps.
Firstly, President-elect Trump's suggestion that the US Embassy to Israel should be shifted to Jerusalem. The so-called 'Palestinians' are very unhappy about this. Perhaps those developments just referred to incite a decision as per "Gog's" plan in Ezekiel chapters 38-9. The reconstructed history referred to led to a reconstructed map of the world in the days of Ezekiel's prophecy (600 BC). That new map shows that the alliance of nations that invades Israel in the First Gog-ite invasion corresponds to those currently in turmoil from Morocco to Afghanistan and from the Caucasus to Congo Kinshasha (formerly "Zaire").
The other 'Trump' we await is found in I Corinthians 15:52 and I Thessalonians 4:16
