Tom, it was the Roman under general Titus who led the charge against Judea during the Roman-Jewish war between 66 and 70 AD. Having said this,Daniel 9:26 points us to a leader who shall rise from Rome. But you are also correct that he is not necessarily from Rome. Take Pope Francis for example, His headquarter is Rome. But he is born in Argentina. Ethnic speaking he is an Argentinian. But theoretically he is from Rome because Rome is his power base. I am not surprised to see his next successor shall be from Africa.January 19, 2017 at 10:42 am #127289
My interest in Jerads background has more to do with whether he could possibly be one of the remnant supernaturally protected by God after the AOD.
What I’m not sure of is if you have to have Jewish blood line to be protected or if being from 10 lost tribes of Israel also protected? Is belief in Jesus Messiah before the flight required?
His peace talks could lead to rebuilding of the Temple. Jerad is not saved yet, still following Judaism. His father is into real estate.
Time will tell. And we may not be here to know God willing.January 19, 2017 at 3:31 pm #127303
Prophecy is going to be fulfilled no matter who’s in the White House. I will agree that a corrupted church will be included in the harlot riding the beast.
I agree with this statement 100%…
I spent about three weeks one time not long ago working up what I thought was, “The True Church” Those who are Truly Born again Christians, Saved by Faith along and nothing else.. It made the hair stand up on my arms. But no one really knows the Hearts of People who say they are Christians, just going thru the Motions. CINO’s as one post has it. Children are exempt because of the age of accountability. There are about 7 Billion People on earth, only about 10% of those who Profess to be a Christian would be saved. In my guesstimation. Pew Poll has the numbers at 2.2 Billion who say they are Christians. 10% world wide is not a whole lot. Once you add By Faith along, and not by works, well you get the message.
The number of Christians around the world has nearly quadrupled in the last 100 years, from about 600 million in 1910 to more than 2 billion in 2010. But the world’s overall population also has risen rapidly, from an estimated 1.8 billion in 1910 to 6.9 billion in 2010. As a result, Christians make up about the same portion of the world’s population today (32%) as they did a century ago (35%).

Just when you think it’s going to calm down a bit, UP jumps you know who, while the Settlement battle of Amona in the West Bank erupts..!
Remember this name: Jared Kushner.
Y Net News… For hardline West Bank settlers, Jared Kushner’s their man
For many in the Israeli settlement of Bet El, deep in the West Bank, Donald Trump’s choice of Jared Kushner as his senior adviser on the Middle East is a sign of politics shifting in their favor. They regard Kushner, whose family’s charitable foundation has donated tens of thousands of dollars to their settlement, as part of a diplomatic rebalancing after what they view as eight years of anti-Israel bias under the US administration of Barack Obama.
“He will stand up for our interests. I suppose he will lean in our favor,” said Avi Lavi, 46, who has lived in Bet El for more than 40 years. “He’ll be fair, as opposed to Obama, whose policy leaned always towards the Arabs.”
New US President Trump says his son-in-law Kushner, 36, is capable of brokering the “ultimate deal” to deliver peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
Roi Margalit, manager of the Bet El Yeshiva, a seminary complex with around 400 students, said Kushner, an Orthodox Jewish father of three, understood the position of Israeli settlers better than previous envoys.
“At least now we have someone who knows us,” the 43 year old added. “He will now have to study the other side (the Palestinians) and see if there is any common ground.”
Trump’s pick for Israeli ambassador has sparked particular enthusiasm in the community: David Friedman, who chairs the American Friends of Bet El Institutions fundraising group.
The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Kushner and Friedman.

Why hardline West Bank settlers see Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner as their man: http://reut.rs/2krCD4w
For many in the Israeli settlement of Bet El, deep in the occupied West Bank, Donald Trump’s choice of Jared Kushner as his senior adviser on the Middle East is a sign of politics shifting in their favor.
They regard Kushner, whose family’s charitable foundation has donated tens of thousands of dollars to their settlement, as part of a diplomatic rebalancing after what they view as eight years of anti-Israel bias under the U.S. administration of Barack Obama
Bet El, a community of 1,300 families perched on a hillside where many believe God promised Jacob the land, has been financed in part by donations from American backers.
Among its donors have been the Donald J. Trump Foundation, which gave $10,000 in 2003, and the foundation of Charles and Seryl Kushner, the parents of Jared, which gave $38,000 in 2013, U.S. tax records show.
The New York-based American Friends of Bet El Institutions hosts dinners to raise funds for the settlement, which overlooks the Palestinian city Ramallah.

Then Jared Kushner Pops up once again…..
Jared Kushner’s ready for his global debut. Could he be just the man Trump needs in the Middle East?
For starters, he is young, energetic, and earnest. For Americans who care about this issue and support Trump politically, Kushner’s got three attributes that make him the right choice for the job: he’s an outside-the-box choice, not part of the establishment, and is a proven deal-maker.
For Arab nations and the Palestinian people, there is the comforting matter of Kushner’s tenure at the helm of his family’s real estate empire, an experience from which he gained a deep-seated cultural appreciation for the region while working with, and among, its corporate power players.
For Netanyahu’s Israel, there’s a great deal of reassurance to be gleaned from Kushner’s Jewish faith and his prime position inside the president’s inner circle. Israel in the past has been especially concerned that their point-person be someone who’s high-profile and has unfettered access to the president.
In the Arab and Israeli worlds’ eyes, Jared Kushner is a perfectly plausible American arbiter of – if not peace — then at least more process, procedure and posturing.
As an envoy for Middle East peace, he insulates the administration and preempts criticism from the major parties to the conflict in a way no one else really could.
Perhaps that’s all the winning we really need
