Prophecy Update Number 50 closed with the antichrist located in Cairo, Egypt, which has been his capital for more than three years. He will supposedly have fulfilled the desire of what most nations say they want, that is, he will have brought stability to the Middle East. However, between the third and fourth year of his rule, something will cause him to quickly head for Jerusalem.
We closed Update 50 by saying, “Lord willing, In Prophecy Update Number 51, we will discuss what causes him to head for Jerusalem.”
Daniel 11:44,45 – But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.  And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
Please bear in mind that Daniel does not bring him out of the Egypt he has conquered until verse 44, and that he heads back for the glorious holy mountain, which is the middle hill of the three hills upon which the eastern part of the city of Jerusalem rests. It is better known as the Mount of Moriah, where the first three temples sat, and is located between two seas, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Dead Sea. Before the mighty former Soviet Union of Joseph Stalin arose, some identified this troubling news out of the north as being about Attila the Hun, after him it was about the German Kaiser of WW1, then about Hitler of WW2, and so forth and so on. Before the great communist revolution of Mao brought forth the present huge sleeping giant of Red China, some identified the troubling news out of the east as being about Genghis Khan, the great Mongol conqueror from the east. But modern day expositors generally now tend to make it news concerning Russia in the north and China in the east. I do not believe it is either. When Daniel wrote his book, it was written to the people of his day. So it is important to consider what they knew to be immediately to the north and to the east of Egypt. But before we discuss what was, and still is, immediately north of Egypt, and what was, and still is, immediately east of Egypt, let me advise you why I do not believe it involves Russia or China. Get out a world map and measure how far it is from Cairo to the borde
rs of China and Russia. The population of Russia today is more than 150 million, and the population of China is more than 1 billion, 300 million. Do you really think he is going to take them on? And are they not supposed to join forces with him at the final battle of Armageddon? If he were, it would be rank insanity to return to Jerusalem to take them on! And, besides all that, the land we know as China and Russia, for all practical purposes, was perhaps mentioned only in fables in Daniel’s day. Do you really think he will “go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly make away many” from two distant, vast, countries with a combined population of almost one and one-half billion?
So what is immediately north of Egypt? What touches its northern border? The Mediterranean Sea!
And what land is immediately east of Egypt? What touches its eastern border? The Negev! And what could possibly be in the Mediterranean Sea that would trouble him? The U.S. Fleet! And what could possibly be in the Negev that would trouble him
? Between 1.7 and 1.9 million Israelis! The U.S. Navy & Marine Corps publish periodical “TRANSITIONS” of “All the Ships at Sea.” You will find it amazing how many vessels we routinely have on scheduled patrols in the Mediterranean Sea.
We keep a carrier constantly on station patrolling that section of the Mediterranean immediately south of Turkey and north of Egypt.
The carriers USS Enterprise and the USS Theodore Roosevelt have often relieved each other on this permanent patrol station, along with other carriers. There is also a report issued periodically on marine units deployed on the many ships that patrol the seas of the Middle East from the Mediterranean through the Red Sea into the Indian Ocean and up into the Persian Gulf. It is simply called “All the Marines Deployed.” The U.S. Marines and IDF have been conducting joint operations in the Negev off and on for some 25 years.
So the antichrist has had Israel bottled up in the Negev for more than three years at this future point in time. I believe the news he hears is simply this: the U.S. Marines and IDF are planning to close his rear flank back to the country from which he originally came, Syria. He will have left a strip heavily fortified across Gaza and the northern Sinai, but he will begin to have reservations about the ability of his troops to hold it. He will then head back for Jerusalem to finally do what he wishes he had previously done, that is, to end the Jewish problem.
He will “go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.” He will super fortify the northeast Sinai and Gaza Strip, and head northeast to Jerusalem to prepare for the destruction of Israel in the Negev. In Prophecy Update Number 52, Lord willing, I will define his palace, the tabernacles, and the nations involved.

US and Israel Increase Military Cooperation
by Elad Benari
August 16, 2010
The IDF and the US military are increasing their military cooperation, according to a report published in the Wall Street Journal this past weekend.
The newspaper reported that this month, about 200 US Marines joined a battalion of Israeli soldiers for an all-night march through the Negev desert, following three weeks of joint drills. Part of the exercise included a mock attack on a mock Arab village.
This included IDF soldiers from another unit posing as Arab guerrill
as and explosions triggered by pyrotechnics engineers to simulate a battle between IDF forces and Arabs.
The Hizbullah backed Al Manar TV also reported on the drill, claiming that it was an exercise meant to simulate a battle between Israeli forces and Hizbullah forces, and that the mock terrain resembled Lebanon.
According to US officials, the joint exercise was the biggest US-Israeli joint infantry exercise ever. In a similar exercise last year, only around 20 US Marines participated. Officials added that an even bigger joint exercise will take place in the fall, this time involving tanks and armored vehicles.
The Wall Street Journal added that the intensified partnership between the two countries’ military forces is part of the Obama administration’s policy of boosting military support for American allies in the Mideast amid heightened tensions with Iran and its allies such as Hizbullah and Hamas. Obama also believes that such partnerships may also help induce Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to make concessions in peace talks.
Last October, more than 2,000 officers and soldiers from the Israeli and American armies participated in a joint military exercise entitled titled “Juniper Cobra,” which focused on defensive measures against ground-to-ground missiles. Air, land, and sea forces from both the Israeli and United States militaries took part in the exercise.
The US and Israel also cooperate on the sale of arms and aircraft. On Sunday,
Defense Minister Ehud Barak announced the formal approval for purchasing the American F-35 Stealth fighter plane, saying that the having the F-35 plane in Israel “will give the Air Force the best capability in the short and long range and allow Israel to maintain aerial superiority.”
Also this year, Obama asked Congress to allocate $205 million to accelerate development of the Iron Dome anti-rocket system.
At the same, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee said last week that he is holding up previously authorized military aid to Lebanon, out of concerns that the $100 million in military aid for the Lebanese Armed Forces will be used by Hizbullah terrorist forces. All in all, said the Wall Street Journal, US military aid to Israel reached a high of $2.78 billion in 2010, up from $2.55 billion in 2009, and is slated to jump to $3 billion in 2011.
Officials in Washington explained that the increased cooperation between the two countries is part warning to Iran over its nuclear program, and part assurance to Israel that the US is fully committed to its security.
At the same time, the US is also stepping up military support to countries it has ties with in the region. One example of this is the recent arms package to Saudi Arabia, which will include advanced F-15 fighter jets but not long-range weapons systems and other arms. The terms of the Saudi deal changed after Israeli officials repeatedly conveyed their concerns that the US risks undermining Israel’s military advantage by equipping regional rivals with top-flight technologies. The report in the Wall Street Journal also added that the Obama administration said it intended to provide new Patriot missile batteries to Kuwait.
Visits by the Israeli and American military brass have jumped dramatically, especially this past year. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen has made four visits to Israel since 2007, two of them this year alone. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has visited Washington four times so far this year, which is unmatched by any recent
Israeli defense minister.
As one Israeli senior army officer was quoted as saying: “There’s been a constant stream of American officers coming through. I haven’t seen anything like it in my 20 years in the army.”
