Footnote 2: Paris

What is taking place today in Syria and Iraq, and the bloodshed which has spilled over into the boulevards of Paris, prior to the Yellow Vests, is our family feud grown large. All the players, US, UK, EU, Russia, Arabs, Shia and Sunni Muslims, in one form or another are related to Abram or Abraham. Abram initially lived in the area that is Iraq to day. Then he migrated north into what is Syria today. And then he migrated south into what is Israel today. His travels were in what we call the Fertile Crescent, the "cradle of civilization." [See FC Map]. The Fertile Crescent includes the two most significant cities in end-times Biblical prophecy, Jerusalem and Babylon. Much of the geographical area involved in the strategic Saudi Sunni ISIS vs. Syrian Shia oil-gas war, is an area in which Abraham traversed to some measure during his life. In this sense, then, the Fertile Crescent is relevant once again. [See the updated Feature article, Damascus A Heap Of Ruins].

Semites, including Arabs, trace their ancestry back to Abram, who migrated from Ur, near the southern portion of the Euphrates River, a little over 100 miles/160km south from the site of ancient Babylon. “You are the LORD the God, who did choose Abram, and brought him forth out of Ur of the Chaldees, and gave him the name of Abraham.” [Neh. 9:7; also see Gen. 11:31, 15:7, 17:1-8; see Ur]. Abram came to live in the land of Haran in Aram-Naharaim, towards the northern area of the Euphrates River, which is northeast of Damascus, Syria today. Abram's wife, Sarai was from the land that is in the northern border area of Syria with Turkey today. When Abram was about 75, he left Haran with his wife Sarai and traveled to Canaan, south of Jerusalem near Hebron, west of the Dead Sea into the land promised to him as Abraham. [See Gen. 12:1-7; see the Sneakers article, Tail Wagging The Dog?].

Abram fathered Ishmael, who is the father of the Arabs, from whom Muhammad was descended. See Genesis 16 especially v.7-12. Abraham was the father of Isaac with his wife Sarah. See Genesis 17. Isaac fathered Esau [Edom], and Jacob [Israel], who had 12 sons. See Genesis 49. Edom, the firstborn, sold his birthright to his brother Israel, but by the first century BCE had gained dominion over the House of Judah, one of Israel's 12 sons [see Gen. 49:8-12], in the person of Herod the Great. [See the Feature article, The Little Horn: First Century Antichrist].

Today, the US, UK led Western coalition and the nation of Israel's militarism is the direct result of the prophetic nature of Edom. "And by your sword shall you live, and shall serve your brother [Jacob/Israel]; and it shall come to pass when you shall have the dominion, that you shall break his yoke from off your neck." [Gen. 27:40]. "Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the god of forces: a god whom his fathers [Abraham, Isaac] knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things." [Dan. 11:37, 38; see the Feature article Is That You Big Brother?]. Edom has gained dominion over the US military, Manasseh, and the UK's, Ephraim, sons of Joseph, the kingly line of the House of Israel, who was a son of Israel by Rachel. [See Genesis 48, also the Feature articles, Is the US And UK In End-times Bible Prophecy? and Isaiah 63: Big Brother]. 

In Edom's quest to gain dominion, to get back the birthright he sold millennia ago and establish a one world government [see the Sneakers article, One World Peace And Security], Edom is using the military, financial might, and blood of his brother's birthright to do so. And what we see in the Middle East with Syria, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Israel, the US, UK, and the EU, they are all "children of Abraham" contesting the same territory, the same geography Abram/Abraham traversed in his journey from Iraq near the Euphrates up to Syria, north of Damascus and then down into Canaan, which is Israel today. 

Three of the world's major conflicting religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, have great ties to Jerusalem. They represent the major players, except for the phantom government, Edom. Their "religion," as noted, is that of the beast honoring the god of forces, the sixth empire, Babylon the Great in Revelation. And with the establishment of Babylon the Great, they will headquarter their empire in Jerusalem having dominion over their brother's religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam[See Dan. 7:24, 25; Rev. 13:5; also the updated Feature article, Obadiah And The Prophetic Parable Of The Tares]. It is vital we understand the prophetic Biblical dynamics involved in our current situation.

When it comes to our modern day current events, we are not disconnected from the distant historical events and main characters found in the Biblical record's book of Genesis. More recently, a key turning point is found our western civilization history books. In 732 CE, as opposed to 732 BCE when the House of Israel was taken captive by the Assyrians, the armies of Islam had marched into Spain and from there to within 100 miles or so of the location of modern day Paris. The west Germanic Charles "The Hammer" Martel, as opposed to the Germanic Angela "The Burka" Merkel, stopped their push northward in the battle of Poitiers, which led to the eventual formation of the nation-states of Europe, i.e., the Christian House of Israel several hundred years later. Martel's men were described by "a chronicler [who] first coined the term europenses-- "Europeans" ... The modern concept of Europe was not born from geography alone, nor from a shared religion. It slowly emerged among a patchwork of fractious peoples that found common purpose in their struggle with Islam." [The Last Crusade, Nigel Cliff, p.21, 22]. And it may be that the European nations will fracture as a result of their wars with Islam.

Somewhat ironically, Edom's control over the Houses of Israel and Judah, and its destabilizing actions in the ME today, has led to the march of Muslim refugees into Europe, much farther than the followers of Muhammad got in 732, which the recent events in Paris have demonstrated. One very interesting note should be made here. The First Christian Crusade, in 1099, Christian armies marched into Muslim held Jerusalem, cutting down the followers of Muhammad, and took Jerusalem. In the Last Crusade, Cliff states, "The outpouring of European zeal that launched the First Crusade had just begun four years earlier, far away in the mountainous forest in central France. There on a cold November day ..." the 27th, Pope Urban II ordered the First Crusade. It was a cold November day, the 13th in Catholic France when Paris was attacked, almost 920 years to the day after the pope's decree in Clermont-Ferrand, a scant 215 miles from Paris. History is anything but boring. Through these manipulated events and others, Edom is destabilizing the Middle East and undermining the US, UK and Western Europe simultaneously. And it's all to one end ... regain the sold birthright and achieve a one world government, the prophetic Babylon the Great of Revelation.

It's time for us to realize the events affecting the House of Israel today are not created in a vacuum. The culpability remains squarely with us. Understanding these events gives us context and meaning not found in the media. It would be a mistake to believe we are mere passive bystanders of the catalytic events occuring and to occur with Syria, the geographic homeland of Abraham's wife Sarah, the mother of all Israel. We're not. As a consequence of our history and Biblical prophecies, it is our destiny that we are participants, courtesy of our LORD through our forefather Abraham.
