3 For the LORD shall comfort Zion:(JERUSALEM) he will comfort all her waste places;(FROM NUCLEAR WAR) and he will make her wilderness like Eden,(I BELIEVE THE EZEKIEL-4TH TEMPLE WILL BE BUILT 25 MILES FROM THE CURRENT TEMPLE MOUNT AFTER JESUS RULE FOR THE 1,000 YRS FROM JERUSALEM) and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.(PRAISE TO JESUS IN THE DESERT-COULD BE THE NEW JERUSALEM-4TH TEMPLE BUILT 25 MILES INTO THE DESERT FROM THE CURRENT TEMPLE MOUNT.SINCE EZEKIELS TEMPLE IS WAY TO BIG FOR THE CURRENT TEMPLE MOUNT)
4 Hearken unto me, my people;(ISRAEL) and give ear unto me, O my nation:(ISRAEL) for a law shall proceed from me,(JESUS IN JERUSALEM) and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.(ISRAEL AND THE WORLD)
28 And when these things begin to come to pass,(ALL THE PROPHECY SIGNS FROM THE BIBLE) then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption (RAPTURE) draweth nigh.
29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree,(ISRAEL) and all the trees;(ALL INDEPENDENT COUNTRIES)
30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.(ISRAEL LITERALLY BECAME AND INDEPENDENT COUNTRY JUST BEFORE SUMMER IN MAY 14,1948.)
3 A fire devoureth (ATOMIC BOMB) before them;(RUSSIAN-ARAB-MUSLIM ARMIES AGAINST ISRAEL) and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.(ATOMIC BOMB AFFECT)
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet,(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB) and their eyes shall consume away in their holes,(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB) and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB)(BECAUSE NUKES HAVE BEEN USED ON ISRAELS ENEMIES)(GOD PROTECTS ISRAEL AND ALWAYS WILL)

47 And say to the forest of the south, Hear the word of the LORD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall devour every green tree in thee, and every dry tree: the flaming flame shall not be quenched, and all faces from the south to the north shall be burned therein.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven;(FROM ATOMIC BOMBS) and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
And here are the bounderies of the land that Israel will inherit either through war or peace or God in the future. God says its Israels land and only Israels land. They will have every inch God promised them of this land in the future.

After Charlottesville, Diaspora minister says Israel can’t protect all Jews-Naftali Bennett insists the ‘lion’s share’ of anti-Semitism in the US is ‘BDS, pro-Arab, anti-Israeli anti-Semitism which is on the rise’-By Marissa Newman August 27, 2017, 6:47 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The Jewish state cannot assume full responsibility for the security of world Jewry, Diaspora Minister Naftali Bennett said as fallout over the neo-Nazi rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia, and an ostensible resurgence of the far right continued to rattle the US.“We view ourselves as having a certain degree of responsibility for every Jew in the world, just for being Jewish,” Bennett told The Times of Israel on Thursday. “But ultimately it’s the responsibility of the sovereign nation to defend its citizens.”Bennett was the only senior government minister to swiftly condemn the August 11-12 rallies — which saw hundreds of torch-carrying white supremacists chant “Jews will not replace us” while waving Confederate and swastika flags — in the aftermath of the protests and a subsequent suspected car-ramming that killed a woman.“The unhindered waving of Nazi flags and symbols in the US is not only offensive toward the Jewish community and other minorities, it also disrespects the millions of American soldiers who sacrificed their lives in order to protect the US and entire world from the Nazis,” said Bennett, who is also education minister, in an August 13 statement. “The leaders of the US must condemn and denounce the displays of anti-Semitism seen over the past few days.”That response was in sharp contrast to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a “leader of the Jewish world,” in the words of his office’s director-general. In an apparent effort not to anger US President Donald Trump, Netanyahu was silent for three days before tweeting out a muted denunciation of “expressions of anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism and racism,” without specifically mentioning Charlottesville.Israeli leaders have also remained mum on Trump’s much-criticized reactions to the events, which included initially saying “many sides” were at fault, and later allocating equal blame to “both sides” and saying there were “very fine people” among the far-right protesters.During the interview, Bennett, who leads the right-wing Jewish Home coalition party, maintained that the “lion’s share” of US anti-Semitism emanates from the left, and refrained from criticizing Trump or Netanyahu, saying the Israeli premier did the “right thing” in ultimately condemning the incident. Outlining his general view of Israel’s responsibility for Jews abroad in the face of anti-Semitism, he indicated the onus was on local governments to intervene.“Ultimately, Jews abroad are unique in the sense that clearly they’re citizens of their countries. But they also have some special relationship with the Jewish state,” said Bennett. “And sometimes it’s hard to define that relationship. Israel cannot assume full responsibility for the welfare and security of Jews around the world. We’re not the police force or the army of the local countries. That’s the responsibility of each government.”In the United States, Bennett argued, the threat of anti-Jewish hatred from the far-left was more significant than from the far-right.“We see the lions’ share of anti-Semitism is actually BDS [the Israel boycott movement], pro-Arab, anti-Israeli anti-Semitism, which is on the rise. That would be, let’s call it, radical left anti-Semitism. And there’s radical right anti-Semitism. And we’re worried about both. We have to keep our eyes on both of them,” he said.When it’s warranted, said Bennett, his office works closely with other governments.“If we see in America, God forbid, a dramatic increase of a clear and present danger, certainly we’ll take even more meaningful action,” he said. In other incidents, where displays of anti-Semitism are present but there is no clear and present danger, “we speak [out],” he added.“Look, I’m minister of Diaspora affairs. Some people call me the minister of the Jews. As such, I believe I was the first minister in Israel who responded clearly and condemned this sort of neo-Nazism and anti-Semitism. Indeed, afterwards, Bibi joined and that’s the right thing. We’re out there looking out for all Jews of the world,” he said.-‘Zero-roadblock policy’-Speaking as Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner arrived in the country to meet with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, Bennett said he was not opposed to peace talks, but hoped both sides would “dump the fruitless Palestinian state approach.”“We don’t oppose talks. The question is not whether to talk. The answer is yes, of course. The question is what you talk about,” said Bennett, who has long opposed a peace deal based on the two-state solution.He was advocating an economy-driven “massive Marshall Plan for the region that would include a land-based port between Haifa and Jenin, an open economic area for tourism, joint industrial centers, and a big increase in the number of Palestinians that could come and work in Israel. We want more of them, we need them, it’s an opportunity for both sides.”“Have a zero-roadblock policy. No roadblocks. Freedom of movement, for everyone,” Bennett said. “That’s basically my pitch to our American counterparts — you guys understand business, you guys understand that business matters more than politics. Let’s get more businesses up and running, more jobs, and build on that.”But he conceded that Trump and his team — despite their reluctance to speak unequivocally about a two-state solution — were “not yet” inclined toward dropping traditional formulas for peacemaking.“We’re still at a point that in some cases, we hear the old tunes, the old music,” said Bennett. “The Palestinians keep on pounding the Palestinian state approach, which they know, we know, doesn’t make any sense. They know it better than us; they don’t want it.”

THE FIRST JUDGEMENT OF THE EARTH STARTED WITH WATER-IT ONLY MAKES SENSE THE LAST GENERATION WILL BE HAVING FLOODING
6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
7 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
9 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.
10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
GOD PROMISED BY A RAINBOW-THE EARTH WOULD NEVER BE DESTROYED TOTALLY WITH A FLOOD AGAIN.BUT FLOODIING IS A SIGN OF JUDGEMENT.
6 said dead in Texas as Harvey causes ‘catastrophic’ flooding-Amid heavy rainfall, conditions described as ‘bad and growing worse’; Trump says he’ll visit Houston as soon as possible-By AFP and Times of Israel staff August 27, 2017, 6:30 pm
Six people reportedly died as Tropical Storm Harvey continued to lash central Texas with torrential rains on Sunday, with the death toll expected to rise.The devastating storm — the most powerful to hit the United States since 2005 — unleashed “catastrophic” floods, leaving a deadly trail of devastation along the Gulf Coast.Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that conditions on the storm-ravaged coast are “bad and growing worse,” as torrential rains continued to batter Houston and nearby areas.Although US media reported at least six deaths, Abbott offered no casualty figures, saying “we will see.” So far, two deaths have been officially confirmed.But he added that search-and-rescue teams have been going door-to-door through some of the worst-hit neighborhoods. He said National Guard troops were deployed overnight to Houston, with boats, helicopters and high-clearance vehicles to help in rescues.“There were a lot of warnings to evacuate,” he said, adding that those warnings “likely saved a whole lot of lives.”Though Harvey has been downgraded from hurricane to tropical-storm status, it is expected to continue dumping up to two feet of rain in the area. It has caused rivers to overflow and necessitated more than 1,000 swift-water rescues.“Now, of course, we are dealing with the damage around the Houston area because of the flooding,” Abbott said on Fox News Sunday.“It is large and growing larger — it will be in the billions of dollars but we really will not be able to tell for the next couple of days.”Houston is the fourth-largest US city, and surrounding Harris County is one of the fastest-growing counties in the country. The combination of dense population and low-lying elevations leave it particularly vulnerable to Harvey’s ravages.If there was any silver lining to Abbott’s assessment, it was that the petroleum industry in the area — including half the nation’s oil-refining capacity — was “very well prepared” for the storm.“They hunkered down and were able to contain the facilities and they have the ability to ratchet up back up there quickly.” he said. “This will be probably a one- or two-week downturn.”The governor also praised US President Donald Trump’s role, saying his federal emergency declaration was the quickest Abbott had seen.Trump, aware of the damage to George W. Bush presidency for his tardy response to Hurricane Katrina, said he was closely monitoring relief efforts from Camp David in Maryland.The president posted several tweets about the storm, thanking the various authorities for their coordination and the professional manner in which they are dealing with the storm.Many people are now saying that this is the worst storm/hurricane they have ever seen. Good news is that we have great talent on the ground.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 27, 2017-Trump added that he would visit Texas as soon as as he could. I will be going to Texas as soon as that trip can be made without causing disruption. The focus must be life and safety.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 27, 2017-“We are leaving nothing to chance. City, State and Federal Govs. working great together!” he tweeted after a teleconference meeting with his cabinet to discuss the emergency operations.He also tweeted about the scale of the storm, writing, “Wow – Now experts are calling #Harvey a once in 500 year flood! We have an all out effort going, and going well!”Wow – Now experts are calling #Harvey a once in 500 year flood! We have an all out effort going, and going well!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 27, 2017-The storm made landfall late Friday as a Category Four hurricane, pummeling the town of Rockport outside Corpus Christi with sustained winds of 130 miles (215 kilometers) per hour, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.One person was killed when a house caught fire in the Rockport area, local officials said.And in Houston, a woman drowned when she left her car, which had stalled in high water, local media reported citing police.“Cannot emphasize enough how much flooding there is on roadways you are endangering yourself and our first responders by being out,” Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo wrote on Twitter.Harvey slowly weakened as it advanced, ripping off roofs, flipping mobile homes, and leaving hundreds of thousands of people in the dark on the Gulf Coast.The National Weather Service issued more than a dozen tornado warnings overnight for southeast Texas, including several in the Houston area.Forecasts show Harvey hovering over the shore for the next days, dumping dangerous amounts of rain.In Houston, a city of 2.3 million, the city streets turned into fast moving rivers with officials warning residents to stay home.Hobby International, one of the city’s two airports, announced that all flights were canceled “due to standing water on runways,” while George Bush International was operating at limited capacity.“Catastrophic and life-threatening flash flood ongoing!” the NWS said on Twitter. “This is an EXTREMELY DANGEROUS situation! Do not travel unless told to.”“CATASTROPHIC LIFE THREATENING FLOODING ONGOING ACROSS SE TEXAS,” it later emphasized.Houston officials said that their 911 phone system was overwhelmed with emergency calls, mostly from stranded motorists.-Recovery ‘will take years’-Abbott visited a shelter for coastal evacuees in the state capital Austin and handed out food, describing the damage to homes and property as “sheer tragedy.”“Some of them had their homes mowed down. Some of them will not have a place to return to… It is our job to make sure they will be taken care of,” he said.The Federal Emergency Management Agency said there should be no illusions about the long-term impact.“This is going to be an unprecedented long and frustrating event for the state of Texas,” FEMA director Brock Long told MSNBC.“The recovery from this disaster is going to be years.”-‘Severe blow’-Emergency services were struggling to make headway as the rains continued to pour down, although the Coast Guard managed to airlift at least 20 people and a dog to safety.In Rockport, a local school and airport were among the places to suffer major damage while homes were also burnt to the ground as power cables caught fire. There were similar scenes in Houston and Corpus Christi.“I’ve never seen anything like this. We do have strong winds — we’re right next to the bay — but nothing like last night,” Corpus Christi store owner Brandon Gonzalez told AFP.-Static storm-Brian McNoldy, a hurricane expert at the University of Miami, said a strong ridge of high pressure was preventing the storm from dispersing.“There’s no sign of it really moving in a foreseeable future,” he told AFP.Coastal Texas is a fast-growing area, with some 1.5 million people moving into the region since 1999. It is also home to a large number of oil refineries and a number of major ports.US authorities said about 22 percent of crude production in the Gulf of Mexico, accounting for more than 375,000 barrels a day, was shut down as of Friday.“We recognize that the ports in this region are critical and vital to the nation’s economy,” said Captain Kevin Oditt, incident commander for the Coast Guard’s Houston-Galveston post.“We are preparing to open ports once the storm has passed or weather conditions permit.”-Fear of flooding-In Victoria, a town just north of Rockport, residents were shocked by the storm’s intensity.“We didn’t know it was going to be a Category Four storm so we thought we’ll just ride it out,” local resident Robby Villa told AFP.“If I knew it was going to be what it came to be, I might have left sooner,” he said.Several locals, including Leslie Warner, worried about flooding.“You know after the storm is done, from Austin and San Antonio, all that water is gonna come down here,” she told AFP.Harvey is the most powerful hurricane to hit the mainland since Wilma struck Florida 12 years ago.2005 was a calamitous year of hurricanes — before Wilma, Hurricane Katrina pummeled New Orleans, leaving more than 1,800 dead.
Netanyahu said set to meet Trump in the US in September-Prime minister reportedly to make state trip to South, Central America, before visiting US president and addressing UN-By Times of Israel staff August 27, 2017, 9:16 pm
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is reportedly to meet US President Donald Trump in the US in mid-September.The two are scheduled to meet on September 17 in New Jersey, likely at Trump’s National Bedminster Golf Club, the Israel Hayom daily reported Sunday.Two days later, both Netanyahu and Trump are to address the United Nations General Assembly.Netanyahu is expected to leave soon for a state visit to Argentina, Colombia and Mexico, from which he will continue on to the United States for a few days and return to Israel before Rosh Hashanah, which begins on the evening of September 20.The prime minister’s schedule has not yet been officially confirmed, but the report said that officials in the Foreign Ministry had been informed of the state visits and were arranging the trip.Netanyahu and Trump have already met twice this year: in February, when the prime minister visited the White House, and in May when the US president visited Jerusalem.During the past year Trump has sent envoys to the region several times for meetings with Israel and Palestinian Authority officials, including special adviser Jared Kushner, who is also Trump’s son-in-law, and peace envoy Jason Greenblatt.
Tal Afar residents who fled are back to battle Islamic State-Iraqi Turkmen respond to call by Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, the highest Shiite authority in the country, to take up arms against jihadists-By AFP August 27, 2017, 8:56 pm
Iraqi Turkmen fighter Abbas Yussef is all smiles, clutching his Kalashnikov near the front lines in Tel Afar, after his unit retook his home neighborhood from Islamic State group jihadists.“I can’t describe my joy when I saw my house again,” Yussef says. “I can’t describe how it felt to take it back, a gun in my hand.”Three years ago, IS seized nearly one third of Iraq, including Tal Afar, in a sweeping offensive that forced tens of thousands of people to flee their homes.Yussef was among them, but quickly, along with thousands of others, he responded to a call by Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, the highest Shiite authority in Iraq, to take up arms against the jihadists.Soon afterwards, he enrolled in the paramilitary Hashed al-Shaabi, an umbrella organisation which is dominated by Iran-backed Shiite militias, but which also includes Shiite Turkmen.The Hashed took part in the offensive to reconquer Iraq’s second city Mosul, which was liberated in July after a grueling nine-month onslaught, alongside US-backed Iraqi military, police and counter-terrorism forces.Now the paramilitary group has been battling to recapture Tal Afar, where IS has been driven out of all 29 districts in the northern city a mere week into an assault by Iraqi forces.-Families fled south-With Iraqi forces poised to declare victory over IS, Hashed fighters like Yussef recall how three years ago they were driven from their homes by advancing jihadists.“I had to leave with my family for Diwaniya” province south of Baghdad, “leaving behind the house I had spent a lifetime building,” Yussef tells AFP, wiping dust and sweat from his face.The former Iraq army officer now in his 40s was battling IS holdouts in the western Tal Afar neighborhood of Al-Kifah when he saw his house — and that brought a smile to his face.Akram Kambris was also driven out by IS from Al-Kifah. Sitting on a rock, the Hashed fighter points to an out-patient clinic.“I was posted there when I was in the local police,” he says before pointing to another rose-colored red-brick building. “That’s my sister’s house.”Kambris recalls that three years ago, he and his “entire family” fled south when the jihadists swept into Tal Afar.Now, he says, all of Tal Afar’s residents are involved in the offensive to rout IS from the city. “The younger ones fight and the older ones organize (food) convoys” for the militiamen.-‘Masters of the land’-Most of the city’s 200,000-strong population — overwhelmingly Shiite Turkmen whose beliefs are considered heretical by the Sunni jihadists of IS — fled Tal Afar after IS seized it.Some members of the city’s Sunni minority joined the jihadists and went on to form a contingent with a particularly brutal reputation.According to Akram, “just a few families linked to IS” have stayed on in Tal Afar.Yussef says that “most of the IS chiefs in Tal Afar” hail from prominent families.According to him, “there are Kurds among IS and their leader is Abu Alaa al-Talafari,” who was close to the leader of the jihadist group, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.“Actually most of the IS emirs are originally from Tal Afar. Foreign and Turkish IS members joined later,” says Yussef.Another Hashed militiaman, Abu Zeinab, brands IS fighters in Tal Afar as “cowards”.“They are not fighting. We entered one house yesterday and found a stockpile of weapons,” he says.“They could have used them and held out for another two weeks, but they didn’t. They can’t resist us, because here we are the masters of the land.”
