Been back from Israel one week tomorrow midnight. I just woke up from an afternoon nap (Even though I’m sleeping nights, I still get a little sleepy in the afternoon.)
I went to the computer to check the Jerusalem Post and I read something that brought back memories-and fortified how different this administration is toward Israel than those of the past, republicans included.
There is one issue that will bring blessings or cursings upon this, or any other nation, and that is how we treat Israel.
I debated with myself as to whether or not I could get this over to you in a blog, but here goes.
The following is what I just read in the JP:
GREENBLATT: SETTLEMENTS NOT REASON FOR LACK OF PEACE
Blaming the settlements for the lack of an Israeli-Palestinian agreement is a “farce,” US Mideast negotiator Jason Greenblatt said on Monday in New York.
Greenblatt’s comments came two weeks after US Ambassador David Friedman said in a New York Times interview that Israel had the “right to retain” some of the West Bank. On Sunday, at the Jerusalem Post Conference, Greenblatt said he supported Friedman’s remarks.
“The lack of peace has nothing to do with the existence of settlements, no matter what people say day in and day out,” Greenblatt said at a discussion in Manhattan with New York Times columnists Bret Stephens and Shmuley Boteach, at Boteach’s World Values Network.
During the conversation, Greenblatt provided some insight into how the Trump administration views the upcoming “economic workshop” it will convene in Manama, Bahrain, next Tuesday and Wednesday. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday called the meeting “important,” and something Israel welcomes.
Get a cup of coffee, a cup of tea, or a lemonade and prepare to go back a few years to President George Walker Bush’s administration as you read an article I wrote years ago. (Hope this blog doesn’t end up as long as a mini-book. But I think it is important to keep in mind how vital it is to have an administration that supports Israel biblically. And how it is of utmost importance to pray “first of all“ for our leaders as the Bible instructs (1 Timothy 2:1).
Now for the article:
An East Wind
A Prophetic Trilogy
Psalms 46, 47, and 48
…Earlier that Sunday morning (April 17, 2005), just after I knew the Lord wanted to speak to me out of Psalm 48, I turned to that Psalm in the Hebrew/English ArtScrolls Tehillim1. There I learned that Psalms 46, 47, and 48 are a prophetic trilogy.
The first, Psalm 46, is prophetic of the last war of this age described in Zechariah 12 and 14 when antichrist forces will surround Jerusalem. Some words from the Psalm as translated in the ArtScrolls Tehillim are especially enlightening of those future times:
God is for us refuge and strength,
a very accessible help in distress,
So we shall not be afraid at earth’s transformation,
and at mountains’ collapse in the heart of the sea…
The river—its streams will gladden
the City of God,
sanctified dwelling place of the Most High.
God is within it, it shall not falter,
God will help it at the break of dawn.
Nations roar, kingdoms totter,…
He (the LORD) makes cessation of wars
to the ends of the earth,…
Desist! Know that I am God,
I shall be exalted among the nations,
exalted upon the earth.
The ArtScrolls introductory commentary to the second Psalm in the trilogy, Psalm 47, reads, “This Psalm is a sequel to the preceding one which describes the defeat of all the nations who unite against God and his Chosen People (Radak).
After the earth returns to order and tranquility, the nations will recognize God’s universal mastery and will seek His presence in Jerusalem.”
In Psalm 47 as translated by ArtScrolls we can really see the prophetic future as earth goes into the Millennium:
All you nations, join hands!
Call out to God with a cry of joy.
For HASHEM (the LORD) is Most High, awesome,
a great king over all of the earth…
God ascended with the blast,
HASHEM, with the sound of the shofar,
Make music for God, make music,
make music for our King, make music
For God is King of all the earth,
make music, O enlightened one!
God reigns over the peoples,
God sits upon His holy throne,
The nobles of the nations gathered,
the nation of the God of Abraham,
For God’s are the shields of the earth
He is exceedingly exalted.
The ArtScrolls commentary before Psalm 48 reads, “The previous Psalm describes the defeat of all the nations hostile to God, which will take place in Messianic times. It concludes with a call to all who were faithful to God to gather together in the Holy Land and in the chosen city of Jerusalem. Here the Psalmist describes the future glory of this city….”
Of course Psalm 48 begins with these words which we used to sing as a chorus.
Great is the LORD,
and greatly to be praised
in the city of our God,
in the mountain of His holiness.
Beautiful for situation,
the Joy of the whole earth,
is mount Zion,
on the sides of the north,
the city of the Great King.
But then Psalm 48 describes again the defeat of earth’s kings and God’s and Israel’s enemies.
For behold the kings assembled,
they came together.
They saw and were forthwith astounded,
they were terrified and fled in haste.
Trembling gripped them there,
Convulsions like a woman in birth travail.
With an east wind
You smashed the ships of Tarshish.
As I studied these Psalms that Sunday morning, I saw something I did not know which ties in with the judgments I’ve been studying. It was the ArtScrolls commentary on verse 8:
“With an east wind. This is the wind which is reserved for God’s punishments, as seen during the destruction of the Egyptians at the Sea. And God swept the sea with a strong eastern wind (Exodus 14:21) and during the downfall of Tyre: The eastern wind smashed you in the midst of the seas (Ezekiel 27:26) (Rashi).”
Evidently in the last war of this age “the ships of Tarshish” will attempt to invade Israel from the west, the Mediterranean Sea. God then, will send a wind from the east and smash those ships.
A Modern-Day Example
Immediately I recognized that here is the biblical support for what I had known was a wind of judgment.
In 1991, I was impressed by the Lord to spend the first part of the year in Israel, where I was to watch something.
On November 9, 1989, God had pushed down the Berlin Wall.
This event symbolized to the world the end of the Cold War.
But the date God chose for the fall of the wall symbolized much more.
The Wall fell on the 51st anniversary of Hitler’s Krystallnacht, the night of the broken glass. “On the nights of November 9 and 10, 1938 rampaging mobs throughout Germany and…Austria…and Sudetenland…attacked Jews in the street, in their homes and at their places of work and worship. At least 96 Jews were killed and hundreds more injured, from 1000 to 2000 synagogues were burned, almost 7500 Jewish business destroyed…30,000 Jews arrested and sent to concentration camps.”
The Berlin Wall fell on another significant date in the annals of Communism. The Lenin-led Bolshevik Revolution is known as “the October Revolution.” By the Julian calendar in use in Russia at that time it began October 25, 1917. But by the current Gregorian calendar it began on November 6, 1917. Then on November 8, Lenin announced the new Bolshevik Government.
The world should have seen the Hand of God in the date of the Berlin Wall’s fall. But it did not. World leaders crediting themselves envisioned a Democratic Utopia soon to appear and with it the answer to the world’s problems.
Israel in 1991 experienced the prophetic coming home from the North of Russian Jews (Jeremiah 16:14; 23:5-8; 31:8). This joyous return entailed housing and training hundreds of thousands of Jews now freed from the USSR. Loans were obtained from world banks. But the banks demanded that the United States guarantee the loans.
U.S. Secretary of State James Baker called the West Bank Settlements “the greatest threat to world peace” in a shuttle diplomacy aimed at bringing Israel and the Middle East into the new world order. Using the loan guarantees as a lever the State Department forced Israel to sit at the Madrid Peace Conference with hostile nations with a foot in Israel’s back to make territorial concessions—land for peace. (See Joel 3:1-3). Thus began a terrible path through the Oslo Accords and now the Road to Peace.
Later I watched as the world news reported devastating storms which occurred in the U.S. exactly on the dates the Madrid conference began. Here are some news items from the U.S.A. Today:
USA Today, October 31, 1991
PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST
President Bush, in opening the talks Wednesday…did not mention “land for peace,” a phrase which rankles Israel. But he did cite U.N. resolutions 242 and 338, which the Arabs believe call on Israel to trade land for peace…he did talk of territorial compromise….
USA Today, November 1, 1991
MAINE SHORE BATTERED…President Bush’s compound in Kennebunkport, Maine…(hit) by 28-foot waves. The Bushes will survey the damage Saturday…an extra-tropical storm…lashed the coast…On Tuesday, the system sucked up what was left of Hurricane Grace and raced toward the coast…the storm is rare because it formed out at sea and then traveled about 1000 miles in a westerly direction. “That’s very unusual because storms in the Northern Hemisphere travel from west to east,” Barnes says. “It was quite far north and traveled from east to west.”
I had seen part of this before and included it in my tape, “Why Bush Lost the Election.” But it was not until that April Sunday morning that I saw biblically that wind, and specifically an east wind can be judgment.

Back to the Present
June 18, 2019
In the ministry of “a witness” which the Lord called me to, I have been watching a long time. I hope you can see how wonderful it is to have an administration that is blessing Israel biblically.
Former Presidents Clinton and George Bush II probably thought they were blessing Israel in some of their policies aimed at bringing peace as an absence of war. However, those policies were based on dividing Israel. I don’t know where the upcoming so-called peace plan will go, but I do know this administration sees some things so much clearer than others.
Prayer for Israel
Please pray concerning the Iranian threat.
And pray for the Leaders of Israel, the USA, and allies to have God’s will and wisdom in handling the matter.

Thank you Sister Billye for your blogs!! Surely the time for HIS coming is very soon! I want to get a Hebrew/English BiBle, is the Hebrew/English ArtScrolls Tehillim1. just a part of the Bible, or only Psalms as a separate book? I have many translations, but most are from the Greek, and I want the one that addresses just the original Hebrew. I do have D. Sterns, Complete Jewish Bible, but notice that other books I have on Jewish words do not always agree with D. Sterns…I would appreciate any suggestions you have on the titles of Hebrew /English Bibles…I am learning Hebrew, but only know a few words, so it would have to be a translation in English…Thank you so much..blessing on you and the ministry you have!
You can get the Old Testament from ArtScroll but the New Testament was written in Greek.Call us at 1-80-972-3447 to order. Blessings Jan

Thank you Sis Billye! My hubby (a pastor of small store-front church in Coshocton, Ohio) and I just ast night watched a video of Perry Stone connecting all this rain and flooding to the judgement of Pharoah’s army drowning in Red Sea chasing the Israelites. It is a very informative teaching also dealing with the abortion issue. (Egyptians were “aborting” babies of Hebrews before Exodus)
God Bless You for your faithfulness to God’s call on your life. I’m so very grateful for your faithfulness to it. I am So hungry to know much more about Israel and the Jewish people because of your teaching. I’m so blessed to be a part of WWP’s.
May God continue to strengthen you, prosper you, and keep you in Perfect Peace.
Thank you Billye so much, this helps shed light and understanding to our involvement with Israel and why somethings are misunderstood in our weather and economy when we try to change the mind of God. And why we need to pray for our leaders to have wisdom and bind aggressively the enemy and his stealth maneuvers. God Bless you
P.S. I so hope one day to take a journey with you to Israel
On my bucket list too!! Thank you sister Billie for all you do for the body of Christ…Shalom

Greetings sister Billye: I heard the story of how the late president Bush 43, stirred up wrath in the form of a rare easterly wind near the coast of Maine told by a prophet on Sid Roth TV. However you eluded further about the eastern wind talked about in the Bible and from what the Lord had shown you while in Isreal, it all comes together more now as one large puzzle completed. Thankyou for sharing this important fact in the Word and in real world history. Garry
God’s will and wisdom concerning this issue. Yes, timely strategy .
Thank you Dr. Billye Brim for keeping us informed so we can pray in agreement with you & other prayers. I really have learned so much from you over the years and am so interested in the end times.
Thank you for taking the time to put this on paper Miss Billye always a Blessing to hear from you! Will chew on this good, do continue to take those naps and may more revelation Glory come as you do. Know that you are much loved by so many!!!
So enjoy your blog, down here in deep dark South
Thank you Billye. This blog brings some things into focus. At church last evening (6.19.20) there was an audio teaching by Dr. David Jeremiah from his book Signs. The subject was The Resurrection of Russia. It peaked the interest of the people there and after the lesson they wanted to discuss what they had heard. It is a Baptist church and has not had much teaching of the Bible. I could see how we need clarity about end time events. I hope to share your blog if I can get your permission to copy it. There are only about 20 people in this church. I attend the church because my husband is the teacher. He is Methodist. I am Holy Ghost with the gift of tongues.
Mistake: The date yesterday is 6.19.19 not 6.19.20
Grateful to be informed..So Thankful for all the information
it really helps me to understand what exactly is going on today
Keep up the work Amazing Woman Of God Appreciate You
Thank you for clarifying and expounding the Word of God showing where are in God timetable.
[…] Media Mentioned: Prayer Call | Billye’s Blog […]
Your love for Israel is contagious. I am thankful for your continuing to bring us a true Biblical perspective. I, and SO many others appreciate you, your team, and your ministry. God Bless.
Thank you Billye for all you do. Keeping the body of Christ updated with what is happening around the world. Love your blog and ministry. Have followed you for years. You are the best up to dat world news sources available today. Keep up blowing the trumpet! Shalom
Just read you latest blog, very informational and enlightening to those of us who want to have a better understanding of the times and seasons we live in. I am still amazed at why so many of us in the Body of Christ seem so indifferent to the nation of Israel it is truly puzzling to me. I thank God for raising up teachers like you Dr. Billye who isn’t moved by what others may think, say or do you have an assignment and you are doing it… This helps us to pray for Israel/our nation and to be better watchmen on the wall. Pray also for you that God will continue to use you mightily and keep you in health and wealth until you finish your earthly assignment.
Agreeing with you Billye, surely it won’t be long before we see Jesus!!!
