The death of Ariel Sharon , Israel’s former prime minister & legendary war hero is a ‘ major ’ historical event.
It is an ominous prophetic & biblical warning of calamitous events coming for the nation of Israel.
Among the most controversial figures in the history of Israel , Ariel Sharon’s life was an amazing parallel to his nation’s own short but turbulent history. Incredibly , the remarkable circumstances of Ariel Sharon’s death on the 11th January 2014 - after laying in a vegetative coma for 8 years - were actually foretold in amazing detail in God’s Word over 2,000 years before !!! We implore you to read the following information that graphically details Ariel Sharon’s truly remarkable life & the stunning significance of his recent passing & what it means for God’s people Israel . . . & the whole world
A Man of Sign : The True ' King of Israel ' cometh !!
Over his long career Sharon , was a man of destiny. Rising from an Infantry Officer in Israel’s 1948 War of Independence , he rose to the highest office in the land when he was elected Israel's 11th Prime Minister in 2001. His life was a litany of epic military conquests , fighting in all four of Israel's major wars , he quickly rose to the rank of general in the Israeli army.
Later Ariel Sharon’s transition into political life was marked by controversary & seismic contradictions. Reviled by Arabs over his hardline policies & viewed with a mixture of respect & suspicion by many Israelis, Sharon became a lightning rod for controversy , all centred around the question of the final status of Jerusalem & the Holy Land , Israel.
Born in Palestine ( as it was then known ) in 1928 , he began his career as a platoon commander in the Israeli military at the outset of the 1948 War of Independence , during which time he was critically wounded & left for dead. As a commander he later fought with distinction in the 1956 Sinai War against Egypt.
In the 1967 Six-Day War as a major general , he headed Israel's most powerful armoured division , the 10th Battalion , leading a crushing victory over the Egyptians.
In the 1973 Yom Kippur War , Ariel Sharon's bold manoeuvre ( while defying orders ) in crossing the Suez Canal & encircling the Egyptian 3rd Army was considered the key to Israel's victory. It led to the Israeli public giving him the nickname " The king of Israel " & " The Lion of God ". Following this decisive victory against overwhelming odds , crowds swarmed the streets singing a revised Hebrew song called " David - King of Israel " & changed it to " Ariel - King of Israel "
During the 1970's & 1980's as Secretary for Agriculture , Ariel Sharon became known as the ‘ Father of the Settlements Movement ’ as he actively encouraged & directed the building of Jewish settlements on the West Bank. Eventually he became the head of the Likud Party & later in 2001 he was elected Prime Minister of Israel.
ARIEL SHARON'S SECURITY WALL
In 2002 , Ariel Sharon controversially ordered the construction of the security barrier - an 18ft high combination of concrete wall & chain fence that snakes through the West Bank ( fore-told 2000 yrs ago !! )
Because , even because they have seduced my people ,
saying , Peace : & there was no peace & one built up a wall & lo others daubed it with untempered morter Ezekiel 13 v 10
Sharon promised ' peace '. Sharon built ' a wall '
Verse 13 tells us the wall will be destroyed by God
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD ; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury & there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger & great hailstones in my fury to consume it.
So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter & bring it down to the ground , so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered : & it shall fall & ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof : & ye shall know that I am the LORD.
Thus will I accomplish ' my wrath ' upon the wall & upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter & will say unto you , The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it
Ezekiel 13 v 13-15
Incredibly . . . these verses above , clearly describe
' FUTURE EVENTS ' all fore-told in Bible Prophecy !!
Ariel Sharon was instrumental in securing the whole land of Israel. His conquests in 1967 & 1973 ensured Israel's survival in the land given to them by God '. Given his extraordinary exploits , it is clear God was undoubtedly with him in these victories. But in his old age Ariel Sharon trod a different path . . . .
In 2003 he promised to create a Palestinian state
AUG / SEPT 2005 - SHARON ABANDONS GOD'S PROMISES
In 2005 as Israel’s Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon caused a national & religious crisis over his Gaza withdrawal plan. He instigated a seismic shift in Israeli policy , having resolved to enforce the unilateral withdrawal of all Jewish settlers & Israeli troops from the disputed Gaza Strip & part of the West Bank.
This decision & it’s execution caused a furore domestically , shaking Israel's Orthodox Jewish community to its foundations. Never before had an Israeli government relinquished what the religious population universally regarded as ' holy land ' promised to the Jews by God. For the first time since the Jewish state was founded , Israel had voluntarily uprooted its own people & ceded land to the Palestinians.
It was a turning point for the Zionist project , So who was the man behind this withdrawal ? The Lion of God - Ariel Sharon !! What a stunning turn around. Sharon who had led Israel to such amazing victories , was now ‘ withdrawing ’ from the land , promised to Israel by God himself.
Ezekiel 11v17 Thus saith the Lord GOD ; I will even gather you from the people & assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered & I will ‘ give you ’ the land of Israel
We may ask if Gaza is part of the land that God had promised ? We are told clearly in :
Exodus 23v31 " I will set thy bounds from the Red Sea even unto the sea of the Philistines & from the desert unto the river : for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand & thou shalt drive them out before thee"
The sea of the Philistines = Gaza .
The area of the ancient Philistines was ' included ' in the land. But in Aug/Sep 2005 Sharon sent in soldiers who physically pulled Jews out of the land ( & parts of the West Bank ). The picture above shows soldiers weeping as they removed their own people. As Exodus 23 says , it was God who drove out the inhabitants of the land. But now here was an Israeli leader - the first in history - to give away ( voluntarily ! ) land given to the Jews by God.
Ought ye not to know , that the LORD God of Israel ‘ gave ’ the kingdom over Israel
to David . . . for ever , even to him & to his sons by a covenant of salt ?? 2 Chron 13 v 5
Ariel Sharon should have known this - but it was about to get worse . . .
NOVEMBER 2005 -- ARIEL SHARON PLOTS ' THE FINAL SHAPE OF ISRAEL '
Sixty years after the state of Israel was created , Ariel Sharon - who as a military general in successive wars since 1948 played a leading role in the expansion of Israel's borders , now as a politician - was finalising plans to further divide the land & set the country's elastic frontiers in stone.
With the withdrawal of Gaza complete , Sharon planned to complete the process by finally dividing the land of Israel in two. This is where it gets interesting . . . ( All this recorded in the UK’s Daily Telegraph ) At about 3 pm on January 4th 2006 a man called Otniel Schneller was ushered into Ariel Sharon's office. He was a senior cartographer - known as the map maker. He had the ‘ final plans ’ for the future borders of Israel. The plans detailed the withdrawal this time not of Gaza , but of the vast majority of the West Bank & some parts of the Holy City , Jerusalem. The meeting lasted 1½ hours - at the end of it , Sharon agreed the map would form the basis of Israel's disengagement from the West Bank & the creation of a Palestinian State. Two hours later Sharon suffered a massive stroke & went into a coma. Co-incidence ??
The coma lasted almost exactly 8 years. Ariel Sharon died on Saturday January 11th 2014. Throughout the Bible record the number ' 8 ' represents ' change ' or ' a new beginning '. Was Ariel Sharon's death a fore-warning of dramatic change for both Israel & the whole world , & a new beginning with the coming establishment of God's Kingdom on earth ??
Woe to Ariel , to Ariel . . .
For the LORD hath poured out upon you
the spirit of ' deep sleep '
& hath ' closed ' your eyes
Isaiah 29 v 1-10
THE RABBI , THE NOTE & THE MESSIAH
In 2005 ( while Ariel Sharon was at the height of his power & busy withdrawing from Gaza ) Israel's most loved & venerated Rabbi pronounced that ' the Messiah ' would not come until AFTER the death of Ariel Sharon.
Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri wrote a cryptic note in September 2005 that he requested should only be opened one year after his own death. One year is the traditional mourning period , during which certain privileges are accorded the family out of respect for the deceased. More importantly, condemnation of actions of the dead cannot be placed on the family after this time period , so Kaduri was likely protecting his family from the backlash he thought may come from his note.
Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri died just 24 days after Sharon's stroke in 2006 at the age of 108. Over 300,000 people attended his funeral. By the time Kaduri’s note was opened on 28 January 2007 , Ariel Sharon had been in a coma for over 12 months. In the note he had left , Rabbi Kaduri had revealed that the true ' Messiah ' was in fact Jesus !!! ( Yehoshua or Yeshua ) All this was reported in Israel Today ( April 7 , 2007 ).
Now , 8 years later & following the recent death of Ariel Sharon , many in Israel & around the world are asking whether the Messiah will come soon
' ARIEL ' . . . IN BIBLE PROPHECY
‘ Ariel ’ is a name that means ‘ Jerusalem ’. Ariel is mentioned in this context in only ‘ ONE ’ chapter in the entire Bible . Isaiah 29 speaks of Ariel being ' the city ' where David lived. It speaks prophetically of Jerusalem being ' brought down to the ground ' ( ' Levelled ’ )
But amazingly , this ancient Bible passage also speaks of ‘ the leaders ’ falling into a deep sleep. This condition will be the catalyst for the terrible time of trouble soon to befall , not just Jerusalem & Israel , but will also engulf ALL nations culminating in God's righteous judgments on mankind. So we can see the remarkable cirumstances of Ariel Sharon's personal demise ( all foretold over 2,500 years ago in God's Word ) unmistakably ' foreshadow ' global events soon to unfold.
. . . A ' WARNING ' of COMING GLOBAL JUDGMENT
We also know one scriptural precedent for a significant death before world-wide judgment. There has only ever been one world-wide judgment before. The next one is coming soon . The first one was at the time of the flood. Just BEFORE the flood came , a man died whose name was ' Methusaleh '. His name means " his death shall bring judgment " He definitely died in the year of the great flood & just before the flood came. His own name spelt out judgment was coming & served as a warning of impending judgment to those around him. Given the remarkable circumstances of his life & his death , Ariel Sharon might be a similar person. His own name predicts what is coming . . . judgment concerning Jerusalem . . . namely ‘ the levelling ’ of ‘ Jerusalem ’. Sharon who led Israel to capture & expand the land , also became the leader who gave some of it away & tried to divide it in two. He has recently died at the very time the world is pushing for division again in 2014 as US-led ‘ Peace Negotiations ’ near their conclusion & we see Israel edging closer to a final deal to trade ' Holy Land ' for the false promise of peace. So , is all this pure chance ?? or is God's hand behind these things ?? You decide .
Woe to Ariel , to Ariel , the city where David dwelt !!
Yet I will distress Ariel & there shall be heaviness & sorrow
& it shall be unto me ' as Ariel ' . . . .
For the LORD hath poured out upon you
the spirit of ' deep sleep ' & hath ' closed ' your eyes
the prophets & your rulers , the seers hath he covered
Isaiah 29 v 1-10
The world at that time was destroyed , being flooded with water.
But by His word ,
the present heavens & earth are being reserved for fire
kept for the day of judgment & destruction of ungodly men
God is patient toward you , not wishing for any to perish
but for ' all ' to come to repentance.
2 Peter 3 v 6-7
Ariel Sharon's life & the astonishing circumstances
& timing of his recent death are a ' prophetic sign '
warning of approaching catastrophic global events
that will precede the return of the Lord Jesus Christ
It is our " heads - up " from above.
Our opportunity to prepare is ... now !!
