4-30-18, Considering the huge events occurring throughout the world, especially in the Middle East and North Korea … these scriptures are especially poignant. For centuries God’s mysteries have been concealed [Daniel 12:4]; mankind has struggled to interpret the parables; often failing. Perhaps NOW Habukkuk 2:3 and Revelation 22:10 are in effect.
Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman excoriated Palestinian leaders during talks last month with American Jewish leaders.
4-29-18, Arutz Sheva -- As part of his speaking tour in the US, the Crown Prince met with American Jewish leaders, including representatives of the American Jewish Committee and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
During the meetings, Bin Salman reportedly vented his frustrations with the PA’s leadership, telling American Jewish leaders that the PA, and PLO before it, had missed countless opportunities over the past four decades.
"Over the past 40 years, the Palestinian leadership has again and again missed opportunities and rejected all the proposals that were given to them," Bin Salman was quoted as saying.
The Crown Prince went on to say that the PA should accept whatever proposal the Trump administration makes for a Middle East peace plan – or “stop complaining”. [..snip]
Last month, Saudi Arabia permitted the first-ever flight to Israel to enter Saudi air space, the latest sign of the quiet thawing of relations between the Jewish state and the Saudi kingdom.

American Pastor Andrew Brunson Has Been a Christian Missionary to Turkey for Twenty-Three Years - New Trial He Will Remain in Prison
*** Update ***
Senators warn of 'measures' against Turkey over Andrew Brunson
4-20-18, NBC -- In a letter to President Erdogan the senators describe the indictment detailing the allegations against Christian evangelical pastor Andrew Brunson as "an absurd collection of anonymous accusations, flights of fantasy, and random character assassination. In September 2017, Erdogan hinted that Brunson would be returned to the U.S. if Washington extradited Pennsylvania-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen...
Turkey Leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan Admits IT! Brunson is a political pawn ...
On April 21, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a live interview that if the United States government wants Brunson to be released, they must extradite Fethullah Gulen and hand him over to Turkey. Gulen is a Muslim cleric residing in the United States whom the Turkish government believes orchestrated the failed 2016 coup. Erdogan declared, “The US is behind [Gulen]…. If you want Brunson, look at the steps you have taken in the past. Why don’t you deport this man in accordance with the extradition treaty?”
ALIAGA (Turkey) (AFP) - Monday, 4/16/18 a Turkish court ruled that American Pastor Andrew Brunson will remain in prison one more month. He has been officially accused of “dividing and separating the country by means of Christianization” of the population. Prior to his imprisonment, for 23 years Brother Andrew lived peacefully in the city of Izmir. He stands accused of aiding the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), considered a terrorist group by the Turkish government for its separatist insurgency. He is also accused of having links to followers of Fethullah Gulen, a Muslim imam who lives in Pennsylvania USA and who the government blames for the coup against President Erdogan. His heartbreaking appeal to the court was denied although Pastor Brunson revealed that he had suffered a breakdown in jail and stopped eating. Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina USA, Brunson’s home state, was present for the trial; also Sam Brownback, a former senator and governor from Kansas whom President Trump recently appointed as ambassador at large for international religious freedom.

Study of Anti Christ & Islam
“When ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not [Islam Dome], (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:”
4-24-18, * -- How many times have the Jews fled since the Muslim Dome of the Rock was erected in Jerusalem in 688 AD? The “false religion” is in several passages in Revelation 13:2-3, 20:4 wherein there are worshipers of the beast, his prophet and beheaded Christians.
Although Islam isn’t directly called a "religion" per se, there's a leader, a prophet and worship can only mean there is a religious component to the activities. Because Islam is recognized by the world as a "religion;" that’s so strongly against Judaism and Christianity, it only follows that here is where the enmity begins and we recognize it as the ‘Beast of Revelation.’ Revelation 13:12
- Abraham had two sons from two women: Isaac and Ishmael
- Isaac son of Sarah is in the lineage of the Jewish nation
- Ishmael Son of Egyptian Hagar is in the lineage the Muslims
The scripture in Revelation 13:3 where the beast was dead and is alive again certainly appears to be the fulfillment of the BATTLE OF TOURS … in 732 AD Charles Martel of France killed the Muslim beast – but it’s alive again. 
There was enmity between the nations created by Isaac and Ishmael and there still is. Fast forward to today: Using the scripture in Matt 24:7 and Luke 21:10 it shows that "nation," defined as a tribe, people group, and/or a multitude of individuals of the same nature or genus, also waters [Rev 17:15] shall rise against "nation." Now insert the names of the tribes, Isaac and Ishmael or their descendants, the Jews and Muslims, and you see exactly what Jesus was talking about.
There can be other nations and tribes substituted, but the emphasis of the scripture is on the history of the people of Isaac, therefore the natural choice of Ishmael would be most likely.
- The Jews are the chosen people through Isaac
- Jesus is the Christ, born into the tribe of Judah, son of Jacob, son of Isaac
- Christianity is the true "religion" Jesus is the Christ
- Islam is the anti-chosen people through Ishmael
- Muhammed is the false-Christ born into the nation of Ishmael and "false prophet"
- Islam is the "false religion" spoken of in Revelation
Gen 16:12 He (Ishmael and his descendents) will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.”
Compare the methods used by the adherents of Islam to convert Christians - submit or be beheaded. Sounds just like the methods used by the false prophet and anti-christ in Revelation - I don't believe this description is a coincidence. I've found no evidence that counters these conclusions.
