Is Iraq the new “base” for Al-Qaeda?

Peter Van Buren worked for the Department of State during the Iraqi war and published a book of his experiences titled, “We Meant Well”. His blog ( noted the following:
“February 23: A wave of attacks nationwide, blamed on al Qaeda, kill 42 people and leave more than 250 wounded.
March 5: Suspected al Qaeda gunmen, some wearing police uniforms, and rage through the western city of Haditha in a pre-dawn shooting spree that leaves 27 policemen dead.”
"Iraq Sunni insurgents keep fighting after U.S. pullout," by Suadad al-Salhy on Feb. 29, 2012 at recorded the following:

“'We are happy to declare the defeat of the occupation but the occupation has a project and the effects of this project still exist,' said Ibrahim al-Shimari, the spokesman of the Islamic Army.
'We are continuing to defend the Iraqi people and this weapon is the guarantee of the security of the Iraqi people.'”
The only military “project” and “weapon” I know Muslims want to perfect is a nuclear missile. Since Iran's efforts have been thwarted through cyber warfare, will Iran's Shiites come together with Iraq's Sunnis on Mesopotamian soil in order to complete a joint effort of iradicating Israel with nuclear missiles?
Mesopotamia means “(land) between rivers” which are the Tigris and Euphrates that have their headwaters in Turkey. In Genesis 10:10 and 11:2, Mesopotamia was called the “land of Shinar” where Nimrod began building his kingdom, and a certain tower in Babel. So it seems the rebellion against Jesus Christ our Creator (Eph. 3:9) has returned to its physical roots, and the mystery religion of Islam was foreseen by John when he described “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus” (Rev. 17:5-6)

The Wicked Woman [ishah] is a Bomb of Fire Offering [isheh]: A study of Zechariah 5
1Then I turned, and lifted up my eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. 2And he said to me, What see you? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits. 3Then said he to me, This is the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that steals shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that swears shall be cut off as on that side according to it. 4I will bring it forth, said the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that swears falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the middle of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof. 5Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said to me, Lift up now your eyes, and see what is this that goes forth. 6And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goes forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth. 7And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sits in the middle of the ephah. 8And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the middle of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead on the mouth thereof. 9Then lifted I up my eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven. 10Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Where do these bear the ephah? 11And he said to me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there on her own base.”

Zechariah is a prophet of the exile who returned to JerusalemIn this passage the word [ishah] is not used for “woman”, but the similar word [nashiym], but the better translation would use [isheh] for an offering by fire, or fire offering. Zechariah was describing a balistic and/or atomic missile.
v1-2 “Flying roll” is a flying cylinder [megilah], 30 feet tall and 4.7 feet in diameter (15 ft divided by pi).
v3-4 The Hebrew word for “curse” [alah] is close to the pronunciation of Islam's god, and its effects are world-wide. Islam commands its followers to lie and use deceit in order to conquer enemies and further Islam. This curse is upon those who “steal” and deceive [ganab] and “swear” [shaba] “falsely” [sheqer] by the name of a god. The LORD will use “it” to “midst”/sever [tavek] their house and “consume”/destroy [kalah] the house's timbers and stones.
v6 Zechariah asked, “What is it?” and the angel described what “it” looks like around the world; this “ephah”, a 10 gallon container. Missile proliferation world-wide.
v7 This container being “lifted up” was a “talent”/circle [kikar] of lead weighing 125 pounds, and the fire offering “sitteth”/lurketh/ambush [yashab] in the “midst” [tavek] of the 10 gallon container.
v8 The angel cast the “wickedness” [rashah]/nuclear, biological or chemical material into the middle of it and sealed the “mouth”/hole [peh] of the container with a lead weight.
v9 Then Zechariah saw two “fire offerings” with “wings”/fins which shot the container into the sky (two times two wings equals four fins on the missile). The Soviets have a (Surface to Air) SA-2 S-75 Dvina medium range missile with two separate sets of four fins which is a little over 30 feet tall.
v10 Zechariah asked, “Where is it going?” The angel replied, to “build”/obtain/continue [banah] IT a “house”/palace/temple [bayith] in the land of Shinar; and IT shall be “established”/restored [kun] and “set”/confederate [nuach] there on its own “base”/foundation [mekunah]. Al-Qaeda means “the base”.

Here is a video showing nuclear missiles matching this description: nuclear missile video

With the understanding of chapter 5 being a wicked missile system to restore its base, it makes chapter 14 more ominous. Zechariah 14
11And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited. 12And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand on their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. . . . 15And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.”
The Muslims will launch their missiles against Israel, but Israel will launch their nuclear missiles against their enemies.

9And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.” Most likely we will all speak Hebrew and call Him Yeshua. Yeshua will restore one language back to all those who love Him. He will undo the consequences of the Tower of Babel during His millennial reign. Yeshua will undo the consequences of all our sins, and His reign will be glorious.

2012 Olympics

The Olympics are a special time for me. Besides being an avid watcher, during the 1984 Olympics I had the honor of leading a worship team in the streets and beaches of Los Angeles and seeing many people come to Jesus. Dear saints had prayed for the people street by street for a year prior to the games, and the police commented that LA had the lowest crime statistics during that Olympics.

This year the Olympics open on July 27, 2012. There has already been an uproar over the 2012 Olympics logo looking too much like the word “ZION”, and I fear there may be something to it. This year, the opening ceremonies occur on the evening prior to the 9th of Av, and similarly in 1942 the Warsaw Ghettos were surrounded by Nazis (see The 9th of Av is when the Babylonians destroyed Solomon's temple in 586 BC, and when the Romans destroyed the second temple in 70 AD. Will something horrible happen to Israel or Israeli participants on July 27-28, 2012?

On September 16, 1970 the king of Jordan expulsed thousands of Palestinians from his country after a failed attempt to overthrow his government, and a group of the terrorists called themselves Black September. In the 1972 Olympics, eight members of Black September took 11 Israeli athletes and coaches captive and killed them.

Holy Father, we thank you for all the security at the 2012 Olympics, and we ask for Your special protection for all those involved. We thank You for the fulfillment of prophecy in reestablishing the nation of Israel and bringing the children of Jacob back to their homeland. We recognize Israel is surrounded by nations who want to destroy them, and ask for Your hedge of protection to surround Your land and Your people. When the time comes, we look to You, King Yeshua to come with Your army to destroy those who attack Israel. Change unbelieving hearts to receive You as Messiah.

Independence Day

Wild fires in the west, a freak storm causing power outages in the east, and hail in the middle of the United States; yet all with minimal deaths. The dollar has lost 1/3 of its value since 9/11/2001 ( God, in His mercy, is removing American comforts and idols (money and possessions) to bring Americans to repentance before His return and greater judgment. Unlike the city of Nineveh, our rulers are not calling for Americans to repent in sackcloth in hopes to avert God's judgment.  

Revelation 9: 20-21 “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries [pharmakeia], nor of their fornication [porneia], nor of their thefts.”

We don't connect the sins of our pornography and fornication and murders (50 million abortions since 1973) and our drug/theft rings with the righteous judgment we deserve. Like Sodom, the few believers in the city were unsuccessful in communicating their faith to bring about a godly repentance which would have saved their city. So believers need to prepare themselves now for when the LORD sends His angels to harvest the righteous remaining on the earth (Matthew 13:24-30), and to harvest the wicked for destruction (Rev. 14:12-20).
Some may say that this can't be the Great Tribulation because not enough bad stuff has happened, and people continue business as usual.  

Luke 17:28-33 “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. In that day, he which shall be on the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. Remember Lot's wife. Whoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.”

When you hear the trumpet and the LORD's shout for you to join Him in the air, be prepared to drop everything and say “Yes, King Jesus”. The American colonists understood that Britain's power to tax would lead to the power to usurp their religious freedoms, and they boldly declared “No king but King Jesus” and resolved to sever the unholy alliance on July 2, 1776 and signed their names to that resolution called the Declaration of Independence two days later.
We now find ourselves in a similar situation with our government demanding institutions of faith to support abortion and other sins. It's time to firmly align ourselves with the kingdom of God and to stand against this ungodly government however King Jesus directs. Our Revolutionary War began with preachers teaching on Romans 13 with a new interpretation, that governments which punished the righteous and rewarded the wicked ceased being God's authorities; and that Christians should do all they could to stop such tyranny. Preacher Jonathan Mayhew said in 1750, “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God,” which was often written on banners during the war. []

 This Independence Day consider declaring your dependence upon the LORD Jesus Christ and your independence from any government 'dictates' or 'laws' which are opposed to the the laws of God in His Word. Doing so might mean prison, but our LORD has done many miracles for His servants in prison.  

Acts 5:18-32 “And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison. But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said, Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life. . . . Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom you put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people. . . . And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, Saying, Did not we straightly command you that you should not teach in this name? and, behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood on us. Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you slew and hanged on a tree. Him has God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Savior, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God has given to them that obey him.”
