Dead Sea Will Become Freshwater – Ezekiel 47:6-12, Zechariah 14:8-9
Ezekiel 47:6-12 – The Healing Waters and Trees
Ez 47:6 He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen this?” Then he brought me and returned me to the bank of the river. 7 When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. 8 Then he said to me: “This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. 9 And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes. 10 It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many. 11 But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt. 12 Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.”
Zechariah 14:8-9 – The Day of the Lord
Zec 14:8 And in that day it shall be That living waters shall flow from Jerusalem,
Half of them toward the eastern sea And half of them toward the western sea; In both summer and winter it shall occur.
9 And the Lord shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be—“The Lord is one,” And His name one.
The Dead Sea is mentioned in the prophecy of Ezekiel. The Book of Ezekiel recalls how he foresaw a time when the Dead Sea would be transformed from saline waters that cannot host life into freshwaters teeming with sea life. He prophesized that ‘ … Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail.”
Almost ten times saltier than the ocean, nothing can live in the Dead Sea’s hyper-saline environment – Or so scientists thought until recently. Scientific research has proved the existence of life at the bottom of the sea, but due to a unique set of circumstances, signs of life have begun appearing on its very shores, precisely as it is written in the Book of Prophets in the Bible.
A young woman on a nature hike was shocked recently when she discovered freshwater ponds with fish on the shores of the Dead Sea. Samantha Siegel, a Jewish woman living in Jerusalem, often takes trips to the desert and the ancient body of water. On a recent visit, she encountered an incongruous sight with powerful implications: a prophecy appearing before her eyes that seemed to contradict the laws of nature....
Prophecies Happening NOW
OTHER MISCELLANEOUS FULFILLED
PROPHECIES IN OUR GENERATION
There are many miscellaneous prophecies that have are starting to happen now - in our generation!
Dead Sea Will Become Freshwater – Ezekiel 47:6-12, Zechariah 14:8-9
Days will be Shortened – Earth is Spinning Faster – Matthew 24:22, Romans 9:27-28
Ezekiel 30:12, Isaiah 19:5-8, Isaiah 11:15, Zechariah 10:10-11, Revelation 16:12-14
Elimination of Meat – 1 Timothy 4:3-4
Dead Sea Coming Alive with Fish & Fresh Water - Biblical prophecy being fulfilled
Ezekiel 47:8. Then he said to me, “This river flows east through the desert into the valley of the Dead Sea. The waters of this stream will make the salty waters of the Dead Sea fresh and pure. 9. There will be swarms of living things wherever the water of this river flows. Fish will abound in the Dead Sea, for its waters will become fresh. Life will flourish wherever this water flows.
The above passage says Fish will abound in the Dead Sea. That prophecy is in the process of being fulfilled.
This body of water is almost 10 times as salty as the oceans. Fish cannot live there.
For man-made reasons such as irrigation, the amount of water flowing into the Dead Sea is being appreciably reduced. The shoreline has been receding at the rate of one meter per year. I.e., the sea is significantly smaller than it was a few years ago.
Dead Sea sinkholes
A consequence of this is thousands of sink holes around the sea. They are being filled from below by fresh water. Not only that, but in some cases fish are showing up in those sink holes.
In 2015 researchers from Ben Gurion University sent divers to the floor of the Dead Sea. Among other things, they found craters up to 15 meters across with fresh water coming into the sea.
Not only is fresh water coming from beside the shores. Fresh water is also coming from below.
Read more about this biblical prophecy coming to pass. Click on the link below. The story also has a video showing fish swimming in a sinkhole.
The data for this blog post came from Breaking Israel News.
Ezekiel 47:10. Fishermen will stand along the shore; from En Gedi to En Eglaim there will be places for spreading nets. The fish will be of many kinds—like the fish of the Mediterranean Sea. 11. But the swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they will be left for salt.
Fulfillment of the Dead Sea Prophecy Has Begun
Almost ten times saltier than the ocean, nothing can live in the Dead Sea’s hypersaline environment – Or so scientists thought until recently. Scientific research has proved the existence of life at the bottom of the sea, but due to a unique set of circumstances, signs of life have begun appearing on its very shores, precisely as it is written in the Book of Prophets.
A young woman on a nature hike was shocked recently when she discovered freshwater ponds with fish on the shores of the Dead Sea. Samantha Siegel, a Jewish woman living in Jerusalem, often takes trips to the desert and the ancient body of water. On a recent visit, she encountered an incongruous sight with powerful implications: a prophecy appearing before her eyes that seemed to contradict the laws of nature.
The Dead Sea is, as its name implies, dead. More than 400 meters below sea level, it is the lowest point on dry land. No life can exist in its ultra-salty waters and its shores are coated with a thick layer of salt that kills any plant.
Its inhospitality has been documented for centuries. A mosaic on the floor of a church in Medeba, Jordan, showing a map for Byzantine pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land, illustrates this. It features a picture of fish swimming down the Jordan River and then turning around once they arrive at the waters of the Dead Sea.
The Bible, however, describes a very different picture of the region. Lot looked out on the valley where the Dead Sea is now and saw an incredibly fertile and well-watered region.
And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of the Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before Hashem destroyed Sdom and Gomorrah, like the garden of Hashem. Genesis 13:10 (The Israel Bible)
The Bible relates that the landscape changed when the fire and brimstone destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah turned the valley into a wasteland. Indeed, people who visit the Dead Sea today would find it difficult to envision a garden in the arid region.
Even more perplexing are the Messianic prophecies that water will flow east from Jerusalem into the Dead Sea, and these bitter waters will fill up with fish and the surrounding desert will be teeming with life.
Then said he unto me: ‘These waters issue forth toward the eastern region and shall go down into the Arabah; and when they shall enter into the sea into the sea of the putrid waters the waters shall be healed. And it shall come to pass that every living creature wherewith it swarmeth whithersoever the rivers shall come shall live; and there shall be a very great multitude of fish; for these waters are come thither that all things be healed and may live whithersoever the river cometh. Ezekiel 47:8-9 (The Israel Bible)
The water level at the Dead Sea has been receding at the fantastic rate of up to one meter every year. This is due to water being diverted from the Jordan River for agricultural purposes and evaporation caused by the Dead Sea mineral works. The dropping water level has led to sinkholes appearing on the shores of the Dead Sea. On a visit to the arid region, Siegel discovered that many of these pools have been filling up with sweet fresh water, and even more incredibly, fish.
The proof is undeniable. Siegel produced a video in which fish are clearly seen swimming on the shores of the Dead Sea, and she films herself swimming in a large pool surrounded by green plants.
Fresh water at the Dead Sea is a clear example of how the prophets were able to see things that remained hidden from scientists for thousands of years. In 2011, a team of researchers from Ben Gurion University in the Negev sent divers to the floor of the Dead Sea. This endeavor posed serious technical difficulties as the super-saline environment renders regular scuba gear inoperable. It was the first time such a dive had ever been made, and what they discovered was astounding.
The researchers discovered huge craters on the seafloor, 15 meters across and 20 meters deep. Freshwater was flowing from these craters, which were carpeted with mats of microorganisms, showing that the Dead sea was not entirely dead. The beginnings of the prophecy are in place, waiting to spring forth.
Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of this Biblical prophecy appearing in plain sight is, as Siegel stated in her video, “This is a big deal, and no one is really talking about it.”
Days will be Shortened – Earth is Spinning Faster
Matthew 24:22, Romans 9:27-28
Matthew 24:22 – The Great Tribulation
Mt 24:22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.
Romans 9:27-28 – Israel’s Rejection and God’s Justice
Ro 9:27 Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea,
The remnant will be saved. 28 For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness, Because the Lord will make a short work upon the earth.”
Jeremiah 1:11-12 – The Prophet Is Called
Jer 1:11 Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?”
And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” 12 Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.”
The significance of the branch of an almond tree was important in two ways.
The almond was well known as the first tree to bud in the spring. This indicated that God was ready to quickly fulfill His word, just as the almond tree seems ready to bud.
Secondly, the Hebrew word for almond tree is close to and derived from the Hebrew word for watchful, and this word is used in God’s response to Jeremiah.
“These verses contain a play on words that is lost in English but is vital for the force of the vision. The ‘almond tree’ is saqed and God is ‘watching’ (soqed) over his word to fulfill it.” (Feinberg)
Revelation 22:12 – Jesus Testifies to the Churches
Rev 22:12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.
Quickly = ταχύ tachu (takh-oo')
ταχύ does not mean "immediately" or necessarily "in a very short time", but rather "without any delay"
Root word is that same word that we get our word ‘tachometer’ from – Jesus will return when things are getting ‘revved up’
Daniel 7:23-Daniel’s Visions Interpreted
Dan 7:23 “Thus he said:
‘The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth, Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces.
24 The ten horns are ten kings Who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them;
He shall be different from the first ones, And shall subdue three kings.
25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High,
Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law.
Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.
Will not happen until the tribulation
The Earth has been spinning faster lately
Scientists around the world have noted that the Earth has been spinning on its axis faster lately—the fastest ever recorded. Several scientists have spoken to the press about the unusual phenomenon, with some pointing out that this past year saw some of the shortest days ever recorded.
For most of the history of mankind, time has been marked by the 24-hour day/night cycle (with some alterations made for convenience as the seasons change). The cycle is governed by the speed at which the planet spins on its axis. Because of that, the length of a day has become the standard by which time is marked—each day lasts approximately 86,400 seconds. The day/night cycle is remarkably consistent despite the fact that it actually varies slightly on a regular basis.
Several decades ago, the development of atomic clocks began allowing scientists to record the passage of time in incredibly small increments, in turn, allowing for measuring the length of a given day down to the millisecond. And that has led to the discovery that the spin of the planet is actually far more variable than once thought. Since such measurements began, scientists have also found that the Earth was slowing its spin very gradually (compensated by the insertion of a leap second now and then)—until this past year, when it began spinning faster—so much so that some in the field have begun to wonder if a negative leap negative second might be needed this year, an unprecedented suggestion. Scientists also noted that this past summer, on July 19, the shortest day ever was recorded—it was 1.4602 milliseconds shorter than the standard.
Planetary scientists are not concerned about the new finding; they have learned that there are many factors that have an impact on planetary spin—including the moon's pull, snowfall levels and mountain erosion. They also have begun wondering if global warming might push the Earth to spin faster as the snow caps and high-altitude snows begin disappearing. Computer scientists, on the other hand, are somewhat concerned about the shifting spin speed—so much of modern technology is based on what they describe as "true time." Adding a negative leap second could lead to problems, so some have suggested shifting the world's clocks from solar time to atomic time.
Earth is spinning faster than usual and had its shortest day ever
The Earth is spinning faster, and recently recorded its shortest day ever, scientists say. June 29, 2022 was 1.59 millisecond less than the average day, scientist Leonid Zotov told CBS News.
The normal length of day is 24 hours, or 86,400 seconds. But in recent years, the Earth's rotation has accelerated, shortening some days by milliseconds. "Since 2016 the Earth started to accelerate," said Zotov, who works at works for Lomonosov Moscow State University and recently published a study on what might cause the changes in Earth's rotation. "This year it rotates quicker than in 2021 and 2020."
Zotov and his colleagues believe the fluctuation could be caused by the Earth's tides.
He says not every day is shorter, but if the trend continues, atomic time – the universal way time is measured on Earth – may have to change. Some scientists propose introducing a negative leap second. "Since we can not change the clock arrows attached to the Earth rotation, we adjust the atomic clock scale," he said.
As opposed to leap years, which have an extra day added, a negative leap second would mean clocks skip one second.
Some engineers oppose the introduction of a leap second, as it could lead to large-scale and devastating tech issues. Meta engineers Oleg Obleukhov and Ahmad Byagowi, who is also a researcher, wrote blog post about it for Meta, which is supporting an industry-wide effort to stop future introductions of leap seconds.
"Negative leap second handling is supported for a long time and companies like Meta often run simulations of this event," they told CBS News. "However, it has never been verified on a large scale and will likely lead to unpredictable and devastating outages across the world."
The concept, which was introduced in 1972, "mainly benefits scientists and astronomers as it allows them to observe celestial bodies using UTC [Coordinated Universal Time] for most purposes," they wrote in the blog post.
"Introducing new leap seconds is a risky practice that does more harm than good, and we believe it is time to introduce new technologies to replace it," they write.
While positive leap seconds could cause a time jump, resulting in IT programs crashing or even data being corrupted, a negative leap second would be worse, they argue.
"The impact of a negative leap second has never been tested on a large scale; it could have a devastating effect on the software relying on timers or schedulers," they write. "In any case, every leap second is a major source of pain for people who manage hardware infrastructures."
The pair believes one of many contributing factors to Earth's faster spin could be the constant melting and refreezing of ice caps on the world's tallest mountains.
"It is all about the law of conservation of momentum that applies to our planet Earth. Every atom on the planet contributes to the momentum of the earth's angular velocity based on the distance to the rotation axis of the earth," Obleukhov and Byagowi told CBS News. "So, once things move around, the angular velocity of the earth can vary."
"This phenomenon can be simply visualized by thinking about a spinning figure skater, who manages angular velocity by controlling their arms and hands," they said. "As they spread their arms the angular velocity decreases, preserving the skater's momentum. As soon as the skater tucks their arms back in, the angular velocity increases. Same happens here at this moment because of rising temperatures on Earth. Ice caps melt and lead to angular velocity increase."
Zotov and his colleagues Christian Bizouard and Nikolay Sidorenkov will present their research at this month's Asia Oceania Geosciences Society conference for geosciences, according to Timeanddate.com, which first reported on Earth's faster spin and shorter days.

Revelation 16:12-14 – Sixth Bowl: Euphrates Dried Up
Rev 16:12 Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
This week on the Marking the End Times show, I’m talking about a couple of major rivers in the world that are drying up. These rivers are mentioned in scripture and have incredible Biblical significance for the End Times.
The End of the Nile (2012): As Egypt struggles with the growing population, the demand for its water increases as well. The situation proves to be difficult as Egypt refuses to agree on equal share of Nile river water with bordering states. Will this escalate to a military conflict?
Iraq gets almost all of its water from two rivers: The Tigris and the Euphrates. Both begin in Turkey and make their way down the entire length of the country, before emptying into the Persian Gulf. The problem is - they are drying up. There are two main reasons for this. The first is geographical: Since both rivers begin in Turkey, Iraq doesn’t have control of how much water it receives. In the last 30 years, Turkey, Syria, and Iran have been building hundreds of dams along both rivers. Now only a quarter of the Euphrates reaches Iraq. Secondly, Iraq has been stuck in conflict for the last 16 years. In each case, the delicate network of treatment plants, dams, canals, and pipes has been repeatedly destroyed and neglected. All of this has boiled over in the city of Basra - at Iraq’s southern tip. Last summer, after hundreds were poisoned by the water - riots erupted and were deeply destabilizing for the new Iraqi government. If Iraq is to rebuild, it needs to get fresh water to its people - a challenge that is getting harder every year.

Sudan and Egypt have hit out at Ethiopia, which has started filling a reservoir behind a controversial new dam on the Blue Nile. Satellite images show water backing up on the Grand Renaissance Dam and now Sudan has reported reduced water flow in its section of the Nile River. Both Sudan and Egypt are downstream and are worried the dam will reduce their access to water. A deal between Ethiopia, Egypt and Sudan over the reservoir is proving elusive. Instead there’s a fraught stand-off with national pride, regional power and economic development at stake. In the latest of his weekly reports, this is Ros Atkins on why Egypt and Ethiopia can’t agree on the Nile dam.

Is the Euphrates River drying up being a Rapture Sign in 2022? Is this the Bible Coming Alive?
Could you believe it? The Euphrates River. No one could have imagined that a river in Western Asia could be the epitome of answers to all our questions. Why is this river so important? How does it play a role in the rapture and second coming of Christ?
According to prophecy the Nile River will dry up
There is a famous prophecy that the River Euphrates will be dried up to make way for the Kings of the East. (Revelation 16:12) Historically, the Euphrates is the border between the Middle East and Asia. Biblically, God told Abraham He would give to His people all the land between the Euphrates and the Nile. (Genesis 15:18). The Euphrates is also the place where four demon angels are bound for a day and an hour to perform a certain judgment of God – which is to kill a third of mankind. (Revelation 9:14). The Euphrates was one of the original rivers coming out of the Garden of Eden. (Genesis 2:14).
A lot of attention goes to the Euphrates in the bible, justifiably. But the Nile River also figures prominently in the bible and also in prophecy. God uses all to His glory; people, demons, angels, and rivers, too. For example, Moses drifted down the Nile on a basket made of reeds. It is the western border to the Promised Land. It is the main artery that keeps Egypt alive.
As far as prophecy goes for the Nile, in three places in the bible it says that the Nile River will dry up. (Isaiah 19:5, Ezekiel 30:12, and Zechariah 10:11).
There are several ways that a river could be dried up. God could directly dry it. (Isaiah 11:15). Man could alter its course via use of a dam or lock system, as history shows Darius did to conquer Babylon. He diverted the Euphrates which flowed under the thick walls of the city and walked in. Or as Hezekiah did in 2 Chronicles 32:3. Or time could make the river dry up or divert, and its course would be lost forever as the terrain naturally changed, like the Gihon River which once flowed out of Eden (Genesis 2:13).
The Nile is a tremendous river with its own presence and personality in the bible. A most mysterious and beautiful river, today about 83% of all Egyptians live by the Nile. It is the world’s longest river, coming in at a whopping 4,100 miles, and it runs through 10 countries. 80% of the water for the Nile comes from Blue Nile which begins at Lake Tana in Ethiopia.
The Nile’s annual floods are well known and one of the most regular ‘natural disasters’ in all of the globe. John Feeney wrote and photographed “The Last Nile Flood“. His writing is great and the photographs are phenomenal.
“Flowing out of a barren desert, from a source “beyond all known horizons,” the Nile had baffled the world for thousands of years. Regular as sun and moon, in the middle of burning summer, without a drop of rain in sight, when all other rivers on earth were drying up, for no apparent reason at all, the Nile rose out of its bed every year, and for three months embraced all of Egypt.”
“The ancient Egyptians knew when the flood would come, almost to the hour, but they never knew how much water it would bring to irrigate their fields. Egypt’s prosperity depended not only on the flood but also upon the accurate measurement of its height, for on that depended the allotment of water to its many users and the taxes they would have to pay in the coming year. “Nilometers” built into the river’s banks to measure the flood had, for 4000 years, decreed how much water would be available to irrigate each man’s field.”
“What was it that prevented the ancient Egyptians from finding the source of their great stream and perhaps learning how high it would flood in any given year? In its waters the Nile held many secrets. Fierce roaring cataracts, six series of them in a thousand kilometers (600 mi), guarded the river’s upstream reaches, and neither the pharaohs nor the power of Rome could conquer all the cataracts. And beyond the cataracts, deep within southern Sudan, lay “The Land of the Swamps,” a wilderness of trackless reeds that, even in the 19th century, marked the end of the known world. For hundreds of years, no one who followed the Nile into this swamp ever returned.”
“The Nile’s source was only revealed a little more than a hundred years ago. In the heart of Africa, European explorers discovered a vast chain of equatorial lakes. And rising to nearly 5000 meters (16,000′) above these immense lakes, on the equator between Uganda and the Congo but nonetheless capped with snow, were mountains known as the Ruwenzoris, often identified with Ptolemy’s “Mountains of the Moon.” Around their silent peaks they clasp the frozen vapors of distant oceans. Earth’s greatest single stream, the White Nile, begins upon them. But this was not the complete answer. Why did the river rise so mysteriously every summer to flood Egypt?”
“Away to the east, as impenetrable to outsiders as the swamps, wild as the cataracts, Ethiopia towers above the deserts of Egypt and Sudan. And it was Ethiopia that held the ultimate secret, for here there was another Nile, the Blue Nile, more distant and mightier than even the White.”
Wikipedia explains, “The Greek historian Herodotus wrote that “Egypt was the gift of the Nile”. An unending source of sustenance, it provided a crucial role in the development of Egyptian civilization. Silt deposits from the Nile made the surrounding land fertile because the river overflowed its banks annually. The Ancient Egyptians cultivated and traded wheat, flax, papyrus and other crops around the Nile.” (Left, NASA Composite satellite image of the White Nile.)
And here we pick up the verses that say in future times, the Nile will dry up. For example, regarding a prophecy against Egypt, Isaiah 19:5-9 states,
“And the waters of the sea will be dried up, and the river will be dry and parched, and its canals will become foul, and the branches of Egypt’s Nile will diminish and dry up, reeds and rushes will rot away. There will be bare places by the Nile, on the brink of the Nile, and all that is sown by the Nile will be parched, will be driven away, and will be no more. The fishermen will mourn and lament, all who cast a hook in the Nile; and they will languish who spread nets on the water. There will be no flax for the harvesters, no thread for the weavers.”
I wrote so much about the Nile so that you can get an idea that when it dries up, you can comprehend what an ecological disaster for all of Egypt it will be.
One thing that may hurry this disaster along is the dam that Ethiopia is building. We read above that the headwaters were only discovered a century ago and they are in Ethiopia. Ethiopia (and other nations) are tired of Egypt dominating the River. The Ethiopians are building a huge dam so they, too, can control the waters.
Whenever man messes with a river things tend to go wrong. Like when they diverted the Colorado in the western United States and an engineering accident created the Salton Sea instead. Or when they tried to control the annual flooding of the Nile, one of the largest dams in the world was built in Egypt in 1971: Aswan High Dam. That was a big oops. Unfortunately, the rich silt that normally fertilized the dry Egyptian land settled in Lake Nasser after the building of the dam, forcing farmers to use one million tons of artificial fertilizer every year to substitute. (source). The very flooding was what made the land so rich.
So when man messes with the natural flow of things the way God set them up, there are often unintended consequences. The Egyptians have to substitute the loss of the rich silt with man-made fertilizer. What will happen when Ethiopia finishes their dam? There will be intended and unintended consequences. This BBC article says they hurried all the permits through without doing any feasibility studies.
“So urgent was the need to get the dam built quickly that the government short-circuited the usual internationally accepted procedures for these kinds of massive infrastructure projects. … The corporation also short-circuited the environmental and social impact assessment (EIA) process. Instead the study – which gave the project a clean bill of health – was published two years after construction began.”
Instead it is explained that studies and permits are a luxury. From the same article–
“It’s a luxury that Mihert Debeba, head of the Electricity Corporation, said Ethiopia simply can’t afford. He said: “Africa is in the dark. If we have to use very luxurious preconditions we wouldn’t develop any hydro-power. …”
Egypt is definitely not impressed. The following story was posted yesterday–
“New research has suggested there is sufficient water in the Nile to support all 10 countries it flows through. This emerged on Monday as Ethiopia’s massive dam-building plans continued to cause disquiet in downstream Egypt. He made this statement as Ethiopia and Egypt are at each other’s throats over the former’s actions along the Nile River. Top Ethiopia government officials have reportedly said they are looking at jumpstarting the massive Renaissance Dam project along the Nile River in an effort to increase water resources and energy for the East African country. Political analysts have said this could threaten regional stability. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has also called on Addis Ababa to push the dam project to the backburner in order to focus on other economic initiatives. While Cairo has denied any intention of attacking the dam, as reported by whistleblower website Wikileaks, the country’s Water Resources and Irrigation Minister Mohamed Bahaa el-Din has reportedly said that Egypt was maintaining its concerns about the construction of the Renaissance Dam in Ethiopia.”
But Ethiopia is NOT putting the Addis Ababa dam on the back burner. Posted this week, we read that-
Energy chief Alemayehu Tegenu said the plan’s centerpiece – the $4.1 billion-Grand Renaissance Dam along the Nile River in the western Benishangul-Gumuz region – was on course to be completed on time in 2015. Two other smaller dams should also come on line by that point, he said, generating a total of more than 8,000 megawatts of power at full capacity.”
So far they have achieved 13 percent of the total construction. When finished, it will be all of Africa’s largest dam.
I bring this up for several reasons. First, let’s look at a map of northern Africa-
There are several wars prophesied to take place in addition to the general warfare that will break out all over the world during the tribulation and its immediate run-up (Matthew 24:6; Revelation 6:4). Psalm 83:6-8 lists the participants who gather to try and “wipe Israel out as a nation,” and yes, that is the exact language in verse Psalm 83:4. So when you hear the Arabs/Muslims cry: “wipe Israel out as a nation” they are echoing the exact language that was prophesied over 2000 years ago!

Assyria—Syria and Northern Iraqis
And the Gog Magog war of Ezekiel 38-39 will include the nations of Turkey, Iran, Russia, Armenia, and nations at the northern tier of Africa such as Sudan, Ethiopia, and Libya.
When we read of water shortages and dams and nations of Africa at each other’s throats, those tensions will boil over to war between and among them, but eventually their hatred of Israel will prevail over their individual national tiffs and they will come together to attack.
Secondly, I recommend studying the Natural History of these places we read about. Learning the facts about the Nile, and its history, help deepen an understanding of the prophecy about its drying up. When the Lord uses an example of a lion’s prowl, it helps to learn how a lion prowls, how far its roar goes, and other facts about the animal. Same with the agricultural metaphors Jesus used. Most of us are not hand-farmers any more but learning what He means when He says threshing or winnowing will enhance the passage when you read it next.
Ask yourself questions when you read a passage. Why that animal? What are its properties? Where is this place they mention? How far from here to there? What is the terrain? Does it ever rain? What are rainfall amounts…etc. Like that
So I encourage you to learn where the places the bible mentions are, and the topography, climate, animals, etc. It’s fun and it’s interesting and best of all it will help you go deeper into the bible!
Last, I mention the Nile to give a flavor of the unseen-to-us but very present tensions over the issues the bible says will cause a boiling over. Water, lands, tribal, food, political issues and more are all coming up to the surface. For example, it would not take very much for Egypt to make good on their promise to destroy Ethiopia’s dam.
Egypt’s Nile River will dry up. It is one sign to keep looking for, even as you continue to look up!
Climate change is real – the famous Nile river is drying up
Lush green fields blanket northern Egypt’s Nile Delta, but the country’s agricultural heartland and its vital fresh water resources are under threat from a warming climate.
The fertile arc-shaped basin is home to nearly half the country’s population, and the river that feeds it provides Egypt with 90% of its water needs.
But climbing temperatures and drought are drying up the mighty Nile – a problem compounded by rising seas and soil salinization, experts and farmers say.
Combined, they could jeopardise crops in the Arab world’s most populous country, where the food needs of its 98 million residents are only expected to increase.
“The Nile is shrinking. The water doesn’t reach us anymore,” says Talaat al-Sisi, a farmer who has grown wheat, corn and other crops for 30 years in the southern delta governorate of Menoufia.
“We’ve been forced to tap into the groundwater and we’ve stopped growing rice,” a cereal known for its greedy water consumption, he adds.
By 2050, the region could lose up to 15% percent of its key agricultural land due to salinization, according to a 2016 study published by Egyptian economists.
The yield of tomato crops could drop by 50%, the study said, with staple cereals like wheat and rice falling 18% and 11% percent respectively.
In Kafr al-Dawar in the delta’s north, Egypt’s irrigation ministry and the United Nations are working on ecofriendly techniques like solar-powered watering that experts say emit less greenhouse gases and could help improve crop yields.
On site, two farmers wearing traditional galabiya gowns show off shiny new solar panels framed by row after row of corn, barley and wheat.
Sayed Soliman, eyes bright and cane in hand, runs a group of about 100 farmers who work a plot of more than 100ha.
The seasoned farmer is delighted. He can now power the pumps that water his field without relying on Egypt’s faulty electricity grid and expensive fossil fuels like diesel that are responsible for climate change.
Diesel-powered generators are now only used “when necessary”, he says, such as after sunset.
After his success, a neighbouring village is also switching to solar-powered irrigation.
“One of the priorities is innovation ... so that Egypt can make the most of its water,” says Hussein Gadain, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) representative in Egypt.
“The delta plays an important role in the country’s food security.”
Ibrahim Mahmoud, head of the irrigation ministry’s development projects, says plans are in place to modernise watering systems across the country by 2050.
The strategy, he says, is intended to improve farmers’ “environmental conditions, standards of living and productivity”.
‘Life or Death’
But in a country in the tight grip of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the Nile Delta and its resources remain an ultra-sensitive topic.
Our visit last month to Kafr al-Dawar is closely supervised by the ministry.
In front of officials, farmers stick to well-worn talking points about the delta’s bounty but politely skirt questions on water scarcity.
Al-Sisi has made the Nile’s water a “life or death issue” for Egypt, particularly in the framework of negotiations with neighbouring Sudan, as well as Ethiopia.
Cairo fears Addis Ababa’s controversial Grand Renaissance Dam in Ethiopia will bring consequences downstream.
For water management consultant Dalia Gouda, Egypt currently has two priorities when it comes to combatting its water scarcity dilemma: tackling overpopulation and defending the country’s interests against Ethiopia’s dam.
“There are many interesting projects under way to improve water efficiency,” says Gouda.
“Although they are not necessarily designed to combat the effects of climate change, they can only prepare the authorities to deal with them.” – AFP
Elimination of Meat - 1 Timothy 4:3-4
1 Timothy 4:3-4 – The Great Apostasy
1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. (KJV)
Rock Harbor Church Prophecy Update
During these last's days, it was prophesized that the churches would join the society in promoting a false theology as part of the Great Apostasy. One specifically has to do with the consumption of particular foods or specially meat. It appears that this trend in society is gain traction and will quickly be a reality for us all. The sad part about this is that the churches and pastors will promote it as well. Today, we talk about this piece of the puzzle that is being put in place as foretold long ago by the Apostle Paul.
The WEF’s promised “cyberpandemic” has hit our food supply, as the biggest animal protein producer in the world, JBS, stopped operations worldwide after a cyberattack. The situation may escalate quickly as live animals are involved, and require feed. But more importantly, Is this just a scripted event to move us to the WEF’s desired post-animal economy, and to hide a global shortage of grains?
The Big “Take Away” from COP26 Confab is: Meat
The most recent edition of the Crypto Capitalist letter had a section about the COP26 summit that was about to commence in Glasgow:
In 1866 Gideon J. Tucker famously opined “No man’s life liberty or property are safe while the Legislature is in session”. The UN’s 26th Climate Change Conference of the Parties is happening this week and I’m bracing myself for the hysteria and generalized idiocy that will emerge from it.
There already experts who are clucking that “conspiracy theorists” are promulgating the idea that climate lockdowns are on the way:
“A new report by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD), a global organisation tackling extremism and polarisation, explains how this conspiracy claims that governments will strip people of their freedoms under the pretext of tackling climate change.”
Although conceding that “It’s important to recognize that fear of government overreach or authoritarianism is not in and of itself extremist” the eggheads at ISD fret that is problematic when “public issues are brought into a conspiratorial framework which implies there are unseen power dynamics at play”.
In the past, when the world’s wealthiest, most influential people, along with the heads-of-state of the most powerful nation states wing into Davos aboard their private jets and then re-emerge chanting “Build Back Better” like zombies, there’s nothing to suspect. Move along.
This week, after over 400 private jets shuttled the world’s movers and shakers into Glasgow for COP26. The big take away coming out of the confab is that it’s all about the methane.
Everybody knew methane is a greenhouse gas, but now it’s a media thing. From here on in it’s going to get political.
When the methane mantra erupted throughout the corporate media this week, seemingly on cue, I didn’t give it too much thought. I was bracing for climate lockdowns, we didn’t get them, at least not yet.
But thanks to my trusty “experts say” news alert filter, it soon became apparent to me what the play is likely going to be next…
You’ll Own Nothing, and Be Happy….
We’re all familiar the WEF montage depicting eight predictions for life in 2030.
Prediction #1 was “You’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy” (Because global Marxism will be running the show…) And whatever you want, or need, it’ll be delivered to your door (of your rental unit) by drone… (Because you’ll be on permanent lockdown)
Goal (Prediction) number 4, was…
You’ll eat much less meat…. an occasional treat…. for the environment and your health.
Yes, it says “our health” in the one frame of World Economic Forum video. Tellingly, the rest of it is all you. You will own nothing, you will be locked in your apartment, supplied by drones, you will eat less meat.
As is typical, however, the 5-star menu from COP26 or any Davos shindig shows that soy patties and bugs aren’t on the menu when globalist elites are busily reimagining your future. The COP26 offerings contained some of the most carbon intense, red-blooded delicacies available: high grade Scottish haggis, venison, sounds yummy.
‘“According to the WWF, we (you) need to get [the carbon footprint of food] down below 0.5 kg CO2e [per meal] to reach the goals defined in the Paris Agreement,” reads a statement on each page of the online menu.’
You are going to have to ratchet your consumption below 0.5 kg of CO2e per meal. The Scottish Beef Burger on the COP26 menu clocks in at 3.3kg C02e. By 2030 that’s probably going to be the good behavior allotment of meat for you and I for like, a whole year.
In The Crypto Capitalist Manifesto (which you can get for free when you sign up for the Bombthrower mailing list), we reveal what this relentless push for The Great Reset is really about:
The messaging coming out of global elites such as the World Economic Forum, The Party at Davos, the International Monetary Fund and even places as disparate as The Vatican and Hollywood are all riffing on the same theme: You, the middle class, the lower class, the masses, are going to have to get used to a lower standard of living.
The real reason behind this isn’t because of climate change or even COVID. It’s because of the debt. The world is finally out of runway from kicking the can down the road all those times the global economy threatened to backslide into recession, or when previous monetary bubbles imploded. All those decades of collectively living on credit and borrowing against the future have finally hit the wall. This is it. We’re here. The end of the debt super-cycle.
Its no coincidence that the Metaverse is also a new buzzword of the zeitgeist. If these global elites have their way, then most of the plebeians are going to be shoved into VR tubes in their own apartments, where they can be intravenously fed a steady diet of soy protein. Any sundry maintenance expenses will be paid for by UBI which will, more than anything else, be a CBDC driven social credit system.
They’ll all be effectively Neo-Serfs, locked away from taking up space in the real world, which the elites (the top 1% of the 1%) will more or less own lock stock and barrel.
The divergence between the 1% and the 0.01%, and this is using 2015 data.
This all may be aspirational on the part of the Davos crew and terrifying for any of the outsiders who actually notice what is going on.
The truth is we’re in late-stage Globalism
But the reality is that we’re in late stage globalism and the technocratic scaffolding that underpins these machinations is actually in the process of imploding. I’ve outlined why here and here and I’m doing another piece on it shortly.
There will be no Great Reset, there may be a Great Reject instead. There will be no AI inspired Singularity, but we may get a proverbial Tower of Babel moment instead. The world will not end because of climate change. Nation States are on the way out, Network States are on the rise. The fiat monetary system is coming to an end, and with it, all linear extrapolations of centralized, top-down governance models will become dysfunctional to the point of irrelevance.

Globalists aren’t just coming for your cars and your cash; they also want your steaks, burgers and bacon
We reported last week on how the globalists are coming for your cars and your cash, because your cars are key to you retaining your freedom of movement and your cash is paramount to you maintaining your financial independence and your privacy.
But they don’t intend to stop there.
If there’s one thing the globalist cabal hates, it’s free and independent people. They want everyone, from every social strata, to be dependent in one form or another on the government for their survival.
But they want more than your cars and your cash, which they will replace with self-driving electric cars and digital money.
They also want to nose their way into your personal dietary habits.
There’s a video that’s started circulating on the Internet under the title, “Woke Activist Says Eating Hamburgers Is Sexist.” This video is powerfully symbolic of the attitude the global predators have toward we the people.
I’ve said repeatedly that in the beast system they are trying to bring in under the Great Reset and Fourth Industrial Revolution, you will have no rights. Only privileges. You eat and survive and move about in society at the pleasure of the almighty state and its corporate “partners.” Klaus Schwab and his buddies at the World Economic Forum call this system “stakeholder capitalism” and it’s coming soon to a city or town near you. If we let it.
So you have to watch this clip from a speech by Carol Adams, who argued for the complete elimination of meat as a food for human consumption in a recent presentation before the Oxford Union Society. She says eating hamburgers is a sign that you are sexist and maybe even a white supremacist.
Below is a snippet of her presentation but you can find her entire speech on YouTube. Do not make the mistake of dismissing her as just some crazy leftist lunatic. She is a useful idiot, but she has some very influential people behind her who are working overtime to make sure you don’t get to eat very much meat, if any, in the coming new world order. (It’s no coincidence that meat is one of the items, along with fuel for our cars, that is getting more unaffordable by the day as our economy shifts into hyper inflationary mode).
Adams’ is actually arguing the position of very powerful global interests. The World Economic Forum and its founder, Klaus Schwab, along with his friend Bill Gates and many other powerful billionaires are all saying that in order to “save the planet,” we need to have fewer living, breathing human beings walking the earth and those who remain must learn to cut back on their carnivore cravings.
That’s no doubt why Gates has made himself the biggest buyer of American farmland and why China is also among the top buyers of U.S. agricultural properties. They hope that by taking more American ranchers out of business they can drastically cut the supply of beef, pork and chicken coming to market and create a market for their artificial lab-grown meat.
And who is the world’s premiere investor in lab-grown meat? You guessed it. Bill Gates. He has said that lab-grown meat could start to show up in U.S. grocery stores by the end of 2022.
But first, there’s a little more work to be done in the propaganda war against meat. They must demonize meat eaters and that’s what the woke woman at the Oxford Union was doing. Meat eaters are evil, sexist, misogynistic extremists.
Anything on which the globalist predators who hate humanity want to declare war on, they simply label as racist, sexist or homophobic.
They have said the same thing about the word “freedom.”
Because the Truckers’ Freedom Convoy has breathed new life into the international freedom movement and is exposing the tyrants, those who finance and provide propaganda cover for the tyrants are now saying that use of the word “freedom” is a favorite choice of “racists” and “extremists.” So beware of hitching your train to those evil “freedom” lovers.
I kid you not. This is the message being put out by Canada’s state-owned media, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
The CBC actually came out with an article trying to convince its readers that to advocate for freedom makes you suspect of being a “far right” extremist and racist.
Are these globalist freaks pathetic, or what?
You truly couldn’t make this up, folks.
