The attacks on Israel by Hamas, which of course sent all kinds of shockwaves to those who may see this as a pathway to apocalyptic prophecy, also coincided with 3 earthquakes in 3 countries in 3 hours. Additionally, there was a series of lightning strikes in the Holy Land on Wednesday, with one hitting Gaza. It could be an eerie coincidence with some of these natural disasters but End Time experts have spoken a lot about the Gog-Magog war of Ezekiel 38–39, a prophecy that predicts a powerful confederacy, apparently led by Russia, that is destined to someday invade Israel. Some think that its fulfillment is even knocking at our door. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with geopolitical analyst and host of Israeli News Live, Steven Ben-Nun about EKLEIPSIS.





It never ceases to amaze us just how much we are living in a horrifying science fiction movie– or that our day-to-day lives are found in the pages of the bible.. mainly the last chapter that speaks of the end of days.

There were 3 earthquakes that hit 3 countries in 3 hours.

A 6.3 magnitude earthquake was recorded in Mexico at 11pm local time on Friday, October 6 (. A second, 5.6 magnitude tremor then struck Afghanistan just an hour and a half later at around 11am local time

Papua New Guinea was the third country affected after a 6.7 quake was felt at around 7.30pm . All of the casualties reported so far were from the Afghanistan quake.

Reportedly 2000 people were killed in the Afghanistan quake.

Sunday an area near Seattle had a moderate earthquake as well.

Yes, Earthquakes happen all the time — but the sequence was unique –as is what happened after the quakes.

Same with what happened in the Holy land last Wednesday.  Five bolts of lightning struck down in the Gaza area around between 3:10 and 3:20 a.m., according to maps produced by Dr. Barry Lynn of the Weather-It-Is company and the Israel Total Lightning Network, which tracks lightning strikes.

Four of them touched down out at sea, but one struck within the Gaza Strip.

It is all a coincidence – an eerie one especially when Israel now is at war after the attacks over the weekend.

The attacks on Israel — which of course sent all kinds of shockwaves to those who may see this as a pathway to apocalyptic prophecy.

End-time experts speak a lot about the Gog-Magog war of Ezekiel 38–39, a prophecy that predicts a powerful confederacy, apparently led by Russia, that is destined to someday invade Israel.  Some think that its fulfillment is even knocking at our door.

But a lesser-known prophecy is gaining momentum and importance for our day: Psalm 83, in which a different confederacy attempts to wipe out Israel.

This psalm seems to be addressing current issues in the Middle East—nations conspiring to destroy Israel.

Psalm 83 is more than a prayer or a plea to God for vengeance on Israel’s enemies; it reveals that a 10-member confederacy wants to destroy the Jews and possess their land.

“See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads.  With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish.”

“With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you.”

That is pretty much the message of the Psalms –written at the time of King David.

The ten-member coalition of Psalm 83 forms a covenant with each other against not only the nation of Israel but also the God of Israel.

The coalition is not satisfied to only destroy Israel as a nation; they want to wipe out the memory of the name of Israel; in effect, breaking the Abrahamic Covenant.

While this 10-member coalition might not yet be overtly united in action against Israel, these nations do exist today and are already united under the values of Islam.

But already the information about what is happening is all being spun by a media that is using the attacks as more a of distraction than a hard-hitting blow to the stability of the world.

After the attack on Israel over the weekend, does anyone feel as though the media is pushing out lies, misinformation, and disinformation, and laying the groundwork for the next stage in their Great Reset plan?

The mainstream media is dutifully propagandizing the masses with the utterly ridiculous that Hamas completely surprised the most militarized country in the world, launched 5,000 rockets, slaughtered hundreds, took over Israeli military bases, and is winning this “war”.

Now we are learning that Iran (Hamas) is behind the attacks, courtesy of the Wall Street Journal–and if you remember on September 11th of this year The US Congress was informed that Washington had cleared the way for the release of five American citizens detained in Iran by issuing a blanket waiver for international banks to transfer $6 billion in frozen Iranian money from South Korea to Qatar without fear of US sanctions.

Was this $6 Billion used to attack Israel?

Is this what happens when we make deals with known terrorist countries?

Did we pay for this attack?

After the attack, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that Israel was “at war” and vowed to take “mighty vengeance.”

This has all the earmarks of a neocon deep state operation — a Ukraine II — but this scenario has a lot of occult symbolism attached to it — and of course, is part of the blueprint towards the idea of an eschaton.

When we see eye-opening geopolitical events, especially ones that push the limits of apocalyptic fulfillment — things are often not as they appear,  Synchronicities may or may not be random in the universe but the signs of the ages often go full circle and we are left with the confusion of measuring that circle that can begin and end anywhere.

It can get into a loop and this loop can last thousands of years.

The devastating attack on Israel over the weekend was no exception.

The attacks by Hamas came after the end of Sukkot, a weeklong celebration to commemorate the harvest season and the time Jews lived in the desert after being freed from slavery in Egypt.

For many Israelis, Hamas’s surprise attack mirrors one carried out 50 years ago, setting off a 19-day war that traumatized the nation.

The Yom Kippur War happened on October 6th, 1973.

Israeli television channels and newspapers were coincidentally running commemorations of that war, and many Israelis on Saturday saw parallels between the attack unfolding around them and the events decades earlier.

Both attacks happened on the sabbath,

On Saturday, many Israelis had been planning to celebrate the holiday of Simchat Torah. Instead, the armed wing of Hamas, the Islamic group that controls Gaza, fired thousands of rockets toward Israel. Simultaneously, reports flooded in of a major breach of Israel’s fortifications along its border with Gaza, the Palestinian coastal enclave that Israel and neighboring Egypt have kept under blockade for 16 years, citing security reasons.

Unverified images soon began to emerge of heavily armed Palestinian militants entering Israeli border communities in pickup trucks, on motorcycles and in at least one case crossing the fenced border by paraglider. Gruesome unverified videos began to circulate, purporting to show the bloodied corpses of Israeli soldiers and of hostages taken into Gaza.

Terrified Israeli residents in border villages phoned into local television stations from safe rooms. Speaking in whispers, they pleaded for help and said they could hear the militants outside, or even inside, their homes.

As confusion and fear spread, many were asking how the Israeli government and its vaunted military and intelligence services could have been caught by surprise — again 50 years to the day after the last time.

We’re told they were totally surprised. Even on the 50th anniversary of the last massive attack on Israel, the Yom Kippur War they were not prepared for an attack from their arch enemy.

They left their border unmanned and unprotected, and it was breached in 29 different places, including in some areas right next to an international music festival where tourists from other countries were partying literally within yards of a dangerous Gaza border.

The Israelis were not prepared for what happened. They’d grown too comfortable, too prosperous, too lazy, and maybe some had just grown too tired and weary of standing on alert all the time with their weapons at the ready.

Just when you feel you are dwelling in safety and security, then like a thief, Satan will send his minions to attack you in the most vicious way possible.

The symbolism is uncanny as to what has happened and again this attack sends shockwaves through the world and another front has been created to nudge the world into World War Three.

It is a never-ending cycle of evil and a never-ending cycle of destruction and rebirth — it is simply the message of an ancient symbol called the Ouroboros.

A dragon that appears to be eating its tail.

The symbol of the ouroboros, or the snake that eats its own tail, has symbolized the cycle of destruction and creation, endlessness itself, since ancient times.

It applies to the circle of life and death and how given enough time all things come full circle — in the zodiac a full circle or a Saturn return is a judgement after 30-50 years.

The Ouroboros is also related to the darkening of the sun and the ring of fire that appears to be the eye of God during an annular eclipse.

The Dragon symbolism is certainly part of the eschaton as it represents war, destruction and rebuilding.

One scripture comes to mind in the book of the apocalypse that reads “Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the Earth.”

The Dragon’s appearance is also a sign of the Antichrist and the black sun.

The Greek legends of the Black Sun are echoed in Jewish, Hindu, and Mongolian folklore: their basis in an actual event seems to be corroborated by astronomical evidence–That the sign of a darkened sun is compared to a dragon eating its tail signifying the eschaton.

The eclipse also reveals the rise of what is known as the Dark Father– Saturn — from which the Star of David or the hexagon is derived.

This celestial Dragon was sacred to the god Marduk. The striding dragon was a portion of the decoration of one of the gates of the city of Babylon—King Nebuchadnezzar, whose name appears in the Bible as the despoiler of Jerusalem would use the image of the Dragon as a monumental entrance to the gate dedicated to Ishtar.

Furthermore, according to the 12th chapter of the Book of Revelation, it reads that the dragon’s tail drew the third part of the souls of heaven, and did cast them to the Earth, the remaining 2/3rds dwelled in the presence of God.

In Old Norse Mythology, the God Thor returns prior to Ragnarök, the end of the world to fight the fiery dragon, Jormungand. The Serpent grows so large that he is able to surround the sun and grasp his own tail. When he lets go, the world is supposed to end.

All of the synchronicities of going a full 50-year cycle– during Jewish Holy days before the sin of an annular eclipse leaves an indelible mark in the minds of those who see this war as the beginning of Armageddon as many armies and countries have now used Israel as the spark for the ultimate divide that resurrects enemies, and reinforces alliances.

The question now is whether or not Global war is inevitable.

What is most disconcerting is the celebrations of the carnage that took place. The celebrations that welcomed war and many all over Europe were in support of Hamas.

There are a lot of people that, when confronted with history, become uncomfortable because either they are ignorant to what has happened in the past or they don’t want to hear about events that have happened that they couldn’t control or even forgive.

The occult view of a situation will not be exploited in the news because no one wants to point out how prophecy plays a role in all things pertaining to wars that happen in the Middle East.

Ukrainian President Zelensky has already come out with a statement in support of Israel while implying that Russia was responsible for the Hamas attack.

Is this the same Russia that has declared that these wars are an esoteric war against Satan? Is it more of a religious impact and an error or prophetic fulfillment?

It is unfashionable to think that there are powers that are being unleashed by design that may be the result of ritual or prayer. They may even be tied to demons or curses. But of course, there are many people who want to reject the coincidences and the synchromysticism that has played out before. Numbers have meaning, words have meaning and  covenants when broken can trigger a response from a higher source–

In Isaiah in the Bible it is written For the nation and kingdom that will not serve Israel shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

This sends out a clear message that the wrath of God is kindled when Israel is attacked.

Anyone who takes prophecy literally understands that a time of distress and burden awaits the entire planet. In the times we may call the last, or the dispensational unraveling I have learned that perhaps prophecy is in a sense an engine for retrocausality and is filled with all sorts of esoteric and occult symbolism.

There are many who want to distance the occult from their biblical blueprint; however, the reality is that the occult or hidden iconography and the way the words and metaphors are given are primarily for those initiates who see the movements of god as mysterious and compelling.

There have been many prophets that have not been confined to biblical pages and they have also been in the practice of causal engineering in order to prepare the world for the ruthlessness of mankind in the era that purports to be the time of the final countdown.

No longer are we capable of saying, “This is where it might lead” because we can see that “the tendency is similar.” the stars are aligning, and the symbolic nature of the attacks — is speaking to our subconscious minds.

We have arrived at the tailor-made nightmare, a nightmare that has been conjured out of the ether by clandestine sorcerers who are not working their causal engineering for the path that leads to the light.

They have now chosen to utilize what is found on the left-hand path, and the deepest and darkest of all we have now rejected and broken many covenants not only with the God who is supposed to protect us but with others who now have seen the dropping of the gauntlet and the revival of a theological showdown between gods, devils and monsters.

Our leaders are not satisfied with interfering with the internal politics of a country, but they have also tampered with the internal priestcraft that has been used to maintain an order free of chaos and chaos magic.

The gates of hell have been opened and while there are no real material gates to unlock and push through, the mental and spiritual realms have had agents on earth capable or rejecting the stairway to heaven, only to tread on the dark cobblestones of hell.

You see, we must all admit that the men who have told us time and again that in the absence of authority, we all become monsters, have all become monsters themselves, even as they truly believe that their death campaigns are making them moral guardians of a flock that we know they do not value. We now have all admitted that truth is a casualty of war, and even in catastrophe and disaster the truth is also an imperiled commodity.

The occult testing of the Western intellect covers all aspects of the mental ability to analyze and find the hidden truth. The truth is a tricky thing, and in most cases tramples upon cognitive bias. The esoteric matrix has within it a so-called satanic intellect that uses half-truths to conceal that which the spiritual world reveals and wishes man to take to heart.

It is as if some curse or possible organized psychological Coup has somehow exploited the unconscious blind spots of the human psyche. This has rendered most people with the inability to recognize that they are participating in madness and psychopathic attitudes with regard to their fellow man. The operational standard for this curse or this mass priestcraft has rendered most people to act against their own best interests.

How else do we explain the latest horrifying events that are playing out on the world stage?

We all know that mankind can dovetail in being inhumane to his fellow man, however, the bigger picture is showing that throughout the future that is in front if us generation after generation will breed into the notion that they have an enemy. They do not have to ask why they are an enemy, they are just there for the sole purpose of being hunted. They are the prey in a predatory world that is now being constructed.

There is an evil that the powers of the new order that is so well organized that the eschaton is now a part of their agenda so that they can be seen as saviors after the dust settles and the smoke clears.

By then the living shall envy the dead –as the evil adversary rises up to sit on the throne of the imperial cult.

Evil is a topic that demands reflection and there should be an attempt to somehow find a scientific method to identify what is truly evil. Is it merely something we don’t understand? Does it allow us to confront our morality and how we see ourselves morally?

Is evil something that can be called upon as an active consuming danger, like fire or cancer? Does it have personality and intelligence, does it command attention and can it be nurtured and engineered through a series of rituals and conjuring?

Can evil rise up because of a broken promise or a broken covenant to a manifesting tulpa, god, or devil?

We face true evil now, and it seems to be an active entity that has been conjured and wants to have a host, preferably a human or animal host.

The idea of possession or possibly mass possession is not too far from being established in the world as the incarnation of the fallen will transpire in these times of chaos. The incarnation is simply the plague that was actually spoken of in the biblical texts as a curse when the people turned against their creator….and against the sacred toponomy that has been outlined by the prophets.

There is a saying that hindsight is 20/20.  Likewise, Bible prophecy is more easily understood in hindsight, after its fulfillment.

So bear this in mind as you put the puzzle pieces together to get a clear picture of where we stand on the road to the apocalypse.

    Yes, as I recall, about a year and a half ago, you were one of those,” experts,” who talked about it; and it was a rather fascinating, interesting show.

    This was a cowardly attack on an US ally. And the B.C.-like Viking actions of the offenders shows the whole world what has come across, and is coming across, the US borders every day since the current wussy career politician(s) “took” the Whitehouse. God will show love by discipline. FJB

    Russia when they do invade Israel with an Arab states confederacy, will be almost annihilated with 1/6 surviving to return home. However, after that will come disturbing news from the East as the Kings of the East mobilize to next invade. All that however, after the Antichrist assumes leadership and makes (false) peace treaty with/for Israel. Many prequel battles occur first. Most christian scholars see the Rapture preceding that opening curtain to the Great Tribulation.

    Invite Christ into your life as Savior and Lord, now. One day “tomorrow” will be one day too late for avoiding an approaching Apocalypse. He will not turn anyone away who comes to Him. Don’t wait for that tomorrow to come upon you to decide!

      { Luke 10: 18 ; Revelation 13: 1 – }

      Actual prophets don’t mix Bible with occultic beliefs or dogma, but rather differentiate and discriminate Truth from diabolical prevarication – frequently using apparent or transient verity to thereafter snare, mislead, deceive, and confuse.
      The only credible mythology link in the Bible stems from Gen. 6 , clearly basis for then future Greek ( mythology.. [ Rick Renner ministries has a 100pg online study guide download that documents precisely this, including with the writings of many early secular historians outside of any biblical authorship ]
      “As in the days of Noah, so shall the coming..” Mt. 24: 37
