Special Report - America's Foreign Policy Reversal
The Powell Speech and The 70 Weeks of Daniel
Prophecy - Signs
Monday, November 19, 2001
Jack Kinsella - Omega Letter Editor

While the new US policy is staggering in terms of both the scope of double-cross and hypocrisy [given our own policy on terror against the US] the only thing new about the policy is our adoption of it. What is not new are the terms. They were inevitable, written thousands of years ago and recorded in the Bible. We are living witnesses to the fulfillment of them. Daniel spoke of the 70th week, at which time God would remove the Church and turn His attention back to Israel. Daniel's vision of the 70 weeks, and how they relate to the events ongoing today, are explained in the continuation of this special subscriber's only report.

In Daniel 9:24, there is a record of Daniel's vision with a revealing angel who outlines the whole of future history from Israel's perspective.

It says: "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy."

There are several elements in this verse that establish beyond doubt of whom and to what the revelation refer. First, the 'seventy weeks'. The word 'week' [Heb. shabua'] refers to a seven-year period and is used in much the same way as we use the Greek 'decade' to divide time into periods of ten years. So seventy weeks is four hundred and ninety years.

The first 69 weeks of years, the 483 years between Arterxexes Longimanus' decree to Nehemiah to rebuild the city and sanctuary [Daniel 9;25] on March 14, 445 BC concluded with the crucifixion of Christ. The clock then stopped and that is where a restored Israel comes into play. The clock restarts following the Rapture of the Church and the confirmation of a seven year covenant between Israel and 'the many' of Daniel 9:27.

The seventieth week of Daniel is commonly referred to as the 'Tribulation' period.

Note the prophecy refers specifically to Daniel's people Israel [and not the Church], that it refers specifically to Jerusalem ["thy holy city"], and its purpose. To make 'an end of [Israel's] sins,' to make 'reconciliation for [Israel's] iniquity' [Christ has already made reconciliation for the sins of the individual -- this is a reconciliation between National Israel and the God of Isaac and Jacob], to 'bring in everlasting righteousness' [fulfilling the Abrahamic Covenant], to 'seal up the [Daniel's] vision and prophecy' and to 'anoint the Most Holy' [Isaiah 66:20] Who will rule in Jerusalem during the Millennial Kingdom Period that follows the Tribulation.

What the Powell speech represents is nothing less than the start of that process. The nations that will serve to hamstring Israel's ability to fight the terror war are the US, Russia and Europe. Russia and Europe have a role in end time’s prophecy. In a curious, oblique way, so does the United States. But the US role is to fulfill the prophecy of Zechariah 12:3 which says Jerusalem will become a burdensome stone for all people, but specifically says that 'all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces'.

The events of 9/11 and the war on terror certainly fit that prophecy. America was a target of Islamic fury for a number of reasons, but chief among them has been its effort to force a peace between Israel and the Arab states that surround it. They don't want piece, they want Israel's annihilation. No country on earth has been a greater stumbling block to Arab designs on the Holy Land than the United States.

Europe's role in prophecy is outlined in Daniel 9:27. The revealing angel told Daniel that the "people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and sanctuary." The "people" who accomplished that destruction were the Romans under Titus. The prince of that people [the leader of the Revived Roman Empire] is the one who oversees the confirmation of the seven-year peace covenant and is the one commonly referred to as the Antichrist. For this reason, it is particularly significant that Europe is taking a wider role in the efforts to force a peace between Israel and the Arab states. For reasons not entirely clear, Europe does not enjoy the level of Islamic hatred that is expressed against the United States and will ultimately be far more acceptable as a mediator than will Washington.

Russia's role, of course, is outlined by the prophet Ezekiel who foretells a coming invasion of Israel, led by Gog [Russia] and the Islamic Middle Eastern and North African states [Ezekiel 38].

But it is America's reversal of policy that is the watershed event. For fifty plus years, America has been the champion of Israel's right to exist within secure borders.

The operative word, 'secure' is a diametric opposite to the terms of UN resolutions 242 and 338 that make Israel militarily indefensible.

A Palestinian state will be a terror state. There can be no question of that fact. Yasser Arafat is a terrorist. He was a terrorist; he will always be a terrorist. That is what defines his existence. Peaceful co-existence between Israel and a future state of Palestine would leave him with nothing to do. His government, his advisors, his administration and his policies depend on terror.

It is at their core; it defines them. For the last decade, his educational policies have been focused on turning out a generation of terrorists dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

Every Palestinian under the age of 25 has been indoctrinated to hate all things Israeli; to see Jews as the mortal enemies of Arabs and of Islam; to extol terror as the best way to achieve Paradise and to prepare an entire generation for martyrdom in the cause of Israel's destruction.

A declaration of Palestinian statehood will no more create a state peacefully coexisting beside Israel than the fall of the Soviet Union created western democracy and prosperous Western capitalism in Russia and the former Soviet states.

The United States is about to lift its hand of protection from the State of Israel. In so doing, it will be lifting God's Hand of protection from our land, which is one reason America is not named or even clearly referred to in Bible prophecy for the last days.

We are living eyewitnesses to events prophesied before rise of Alexander the Great; before the time of the Caesars; before the Birth of Christ. Events that began to take form with the partial fulfillment of Isaiah 66:8 in which the State of Israel was 'brought forth in a day' on May 15, 1948 and which, in the words of Jesus, will see their complete fulfillment in that generation [Matthew 24:34].

Jesus told His disciples in Luke 21:28 that, from the perspective of Israel; "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads, for your redemption draweth nigh."

What does that mean to the Church? When the signs of the national redemption of Israel are evident, we can know the Rapture is at hand. Because it happens first.

The signs of Israel's national redemption are all around us. Paul wrote in 2 Thessalonians 2:7 that the mystery of iniquity doth already work, only He [the Holy Spirit] who now letteth [restrains] will let, until He be taken out of the way." The Holy Spirit is God, and His Presence is everywhere and in everything, but His ministry of restraining evil exists within the church. When the restraining influence of the Church is removed, then all hell will literally break loose. That is the 70th Week of Daniel. And it is fast approaching.
