In politics there is often an October surprise in national elections. We are a year away from that, but this month is bursting with potential big news stories of prophetic importance. Last month I included a list but have since added to it. This post will comment on each of these with links to the background stories.
We have now passed the end of Ramadan with no major issues. The political season takes off this month with Sarah Palin giving substantial details of her solutions on major issues, without announcing her candidacy as yet. (Doreen and I attended a Tea Party Express event in Manchester, NH where Sarah Palin spoke and Doreen was interviewed.) Earlier Palin articulated her support for Israel and laid out her view of America’s military role in the world. There will be five debates in the next six weeks that will winnow out the field beginning tonight. Thursday night the President will kick off his re-election campaign before a joint session of Congress with his latest speech on jobs.
Sunday we observe the 10th anniversary of 9-11 in NYC with clergy banned and Muslims declaring that they will intentionally make noise during the moments of silence. The Egyptian elections which will bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power have been delayed until at least November. As the US Congress comes into session today, expect fireworks over the national debt and the budget.
The United Nations Palmer Commission report came out this week essentially vindicating Israel in the Flotilla incident last year. It concluded that Israel’s blockade of Gaza is legal under international law. Another UN event is the September 22 Durban III Conference purporting to be anti-racism but offering a declaration condemning only one country, Israel, as racist. To their credit, 9 countries have withdrawn.
New York’s 9th Congressional District (Brooklyn and Queens) is gearing up for the September 13, 2011 special election to fill the seat vacated by disgraced Democrat Anthony Weiner. The big news here is that a Republican is leading.
An event planned for New York City on September 17, has been overlooked. Who Is Behind the ‘US Day of Rage’ to ‘Occupy’ Wall Street? Read the background here. The poster invites protestors to bring their tents for a prolonged demonstration.
September is when the “don’t ask, don’t tell” restrictions will be officially lifted in our military and homosexuals will get the special, privileged status they have so long sought. Also, a Jerusalem Gay parade is set for Sept. 21. What a month!
All of the above events are prophetic, but the most serious of all these is the Palestine vote at the UN after September 19. Many nations are already committed to vote that a Palestinian state be unilaterally imposed, without Israel’s involvement. The US indicates it will veto, but we must pray hard until then. Either way, a new intifada in inevitable. If they lose the vote they will rebel; if they win, they will oppose Israel’s security and rebel. Add to this a “million man march” into Israel at this same time frame and a new flotilla to “free Gaza”. Wow! There is even a comet showing up at the end of the month which some believe is a sign of the last days of the age.
Finally, the most important date of the month is the Feast of Trumpets at sundown on the 27th. As Israelis and Jews everywhere are joined by many Christian Zionists to observe the Feast of Tabernacles, Yehovah God may have the biggest surprise of all. Stay tuned, stay awake, this is no time to let the oil run out of our lamps. (LISTEN to my audio teaching on the 7 Feasts of Yehovah.)
Then Yehovah spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yehovah.’ ” Leviticus 23:23-25
