The year 2017 is a remarkable year for Bible prophecy and very exciting for all bible students who are anticipating the return of our Lord.
7 Surely the Lord Yahweh will do no thing, except He reveals His secret unto His servants the prophets.
8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord Yahweh hath spoken, who doth not prophesy?
Here are only some of the highlights of the year 2017
Donald Trump Inaugurated as President of the United States. This is one of the first key moments of significance to bible students in 2017. It is God who rules in kingdom of men especially those nations that concern Israel. Trump was a huge underdog in the Presidential race and his win shocked the nation by many who believed there was no way he could come into power.
Daniel answered and said, Blessed be The Name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: He changeth the times and the seasons: He removeth kings, and setteth up kings.
Jan.27 President Trump meets with British Prime Minister Theresa May. At this time Trump stated that the U.S. was 100% behind NATO but this may change. Britain in the bible is called “Tarshish” in the bible and the U.S. are called a “young lion”. They will both defend Israel when the Gogian confederacy invades Israel.
“Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
Feb.05 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu set off for a 24-hour trip to London on Sunday for “common stand” against Iran.
Feb.14 White House Press Secretary Spicer stated that President Trumps U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, on her first day, told the UN security council that the U.S. strongly denounces “the Russian occupation of Crimea” and deserves “strong condemnation”. He said President Trump said Russia needs to stop the violence in Eastern Ukraine and return Crimea.
Russia responded they will NOT return Crimea because it belongs to Russia. On the same day, Moscow seems to “test” President Trump by deploying a fully operational cruise missile volating an arms control treaty with the U.S.
Feb.15 Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu visits the U.S. and meets President Donald Trump
On the same day, a Russian spy ship lurks off the Coast, just 30 miles from the state of Connecticut but remaining in international waters. President Trump called this action “not good”. At the same time, President Trump was also asked about the Russian missile launched the day before and he said “not good”.
March 09 Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu arrives in Moscow for talks with Russian President Putin seeking assistance of Russia to be a guard (Ez.38:7) and protect their borders while eliminating the “radical shiite muslims” in Syria.
Russia is the latter day Assyrian as mentioned by the Prophets when Christ returns…
“And this man (Christ) shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.
And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod (Iraq/Syria region) in the entrances thereof: thus shall he (Christ) deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders.”
March 24 Meeting scheduled
This will be a monumental meeting where the Pope (“the False Prophet”) will address the EU (of which countries will become “the Beast”).
This is described in Revelation 17 where the Pope (Papal system) is described as “…the great whore that sitteth upon many waters (nations): With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
Revelation 17:1-2 KJV
“And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”
Revelation 17:12-14 KJV
