Scripture to consider before the news:
“For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.”
As we approach “the last days” we will see this scripture of truth be fulfilled with Gaza.
Jerusalem will also become a cup of trembling to the region and world.
“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.”
But don’t worry, “the prince of the covenant” who is looking to be Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia is coming to help soon.
“And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.”
Now unto the news:
Ceasefire broken as Israel carries out air strikes in Gaza after militants launch balloon firebombs following Jerusalem march.
The ceasefire between Israel and Hamas has been broken after less than four weeks.
Israel said its aircraft struck Hamas military compounds in Gaza, after incendiary balloons launched from Gaza caused at least 10 fires in fields in southern Israel.
The violence flared after thousands of far-right Israeli protesters paraded in East Jerusalem.
Hamas had warned that if the event went ahead, it would be seen as a provocation.
In a statement, the Israeli military said that it was “ready for all scenarios, including renewed fighting in the face of continued terrorist acts emanating from Gaza”.
A Hamas spokesman, confirming the Israeli attacks, said Palestinians would continue to pursue their “brave resistance and defend their rights and sacred sites” in Jerusalem.
The clashes broke a ceasefire that ended 11 days of cross-border fighting last month.
Earlier in the day, Israeli protesters congregated around the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem’s Old City before heading to Judaism’s holy Western Wall, drawing Palestinian anger and condemnation.
Israel, which occupied East Jerusalem in a 1967 war and later annexed it in a move that has not won international recognition, regards the entire city as its capital.
Palestinians want East Jerusalem to be the capital of a future state that would include the West Bank and Gaza.
Before the march, Israel beefed up its deployment of the Iron Dome anti-missile system in anticipation of possible rocket attacks from Gaza.
The procession had originally been scheduled for May 10 as part of “Jerusalem Day” festivities that celebrate Israel’s capture of East Jerusalem.
That march was diverted away from the Damascus Gate and the Old City at the last minute, but the move was not enough to dissuade Hamas from firing rockets towards Jerusalem, setting off last month’s round of fighting.

Saudi Arabia to license two digital banks.
Scripture to consider:
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
The he that will cause all will be the final pope which is “the false prophet” and 2nd beast that will aid the first beast of Revelation 13 into his global kingdom.
The beast himself has a number to his name and in the book of Daniel is referred to as “the prince that shall come” and “the prince of the covenant” and that is looking to be the crown prince of the home of Islam, Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Let’s see how he is preparing his country to receive his mark to buy or sell that will be fully cashless, hence why he is doing this DIGITAL BANK push.
The Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (the Central Bank) announced on Friday the completion of procedures to study two applications for licensing two local digital banks to conduct electronic banking activities in the country.
The Saudi Central Bank said in a statement that it will submit the two requests to the higher authorities to acquire approval of the licenses, reported Al Khaleej Online.
“After the approval is issued, the bank will supervise creation and operating arrangements, before the two banks conduct their business in the Kingdom,” the statement added.
The statement explained that this step aims to develop the digital economy and enable financial companies to support the growth of the private sector, as well as opening the way for new companies to provide financial services.
So far, the Central Bank has licensed 16 financial companies to provide payment services, consumer finance and electronic insurance brokerage.
The Saudi banking sector has been witnessing significant progress in the field of electronic services in recent years.
In cooperation with the UAE, Riyadh has been working for months to launch a digital currency to facilitate money transfers between the banks of the two countries.

Saudi Arabia to ban entry of unvaccinated people to malls, shops.
Saudi Arabia said it will ban access to shopping malls and all commercial outlets for unvaccinated people starting from August 1, local media reported on Sunday.
“People who received at least the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine will be allowed to enter malls, Abdul Rahman Al Hussein, the Ministry of Commerce spokesman, said. Only vaccinated people will be given access to economic, commercial, cultural, entertainment and sports activity. Visiting any government or private establishment, whether for business or following up will also will be limited to vaccinated people. Authorities also restricted access to government or private educational facilities as well as public transport.
The new curbs, which will take effect after 48 days, aim to urge people to be vaccinated, thereby helping stem the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Al Hussein reiterated that the four practices that lead to crowding inside, and outside commercial establishments will remain prohibited, mainly: inviting celebrities and advertisers, conducting ceremonies for shops and markets, commercial competitions that require attendance, and launching events for products or services.
Lastly: No jab, no phone: Unvaccinated to have SIM cards blocked, Pakistan’s Punjab government says.
Punjab’s provincial government is turning to coercive measures to increase participation in its Covid-19 vaccination program, after unveiling plans to disable the SIM cards of people who decline to get jabbed.
The extreme decision was made during a meeting of high-ranking civil and military officials chaired by Punjab Health Minister Yasmin Rashid.
Rashid said that the policy would disable SIM cards belonging to those who fail to get vaccinated “beyond a certain time.”
“We are doing all we can to compel people to get vaccinated… The government cannot allow individuals, who do not want to get vaccinated, to risk lives of those who are already vaccinated,” the health minister told Pakistan’s Express Tribune. She said that the provincial government would devise a timeline for the policy’s implementation once it received formal approval from the National Command and Operation Center, which coordinates Pakistan’s national response to Covid-19.
Punjab’s Primary and Secondary Health Department announced the measure on Thursday in a tweet detailing the outcome of the meeting.
“Mobile SIMS of people not getting vaccinated may be blocked,” the department wrote.
Officials later signaled that the plan was moving forward.
“[A] final decision has been taken to block the mobile SIM cards of people not getting vaccinated,” Punjab Specialized Healthcare Department spokesman Syed Hammad Raza told Dawn, a Pakistani daily.
Citing a senior health department official, the paper said that the Punjab government will seek help from the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) in order to implement the policy.
The measure is designed to counter “negative propaganda” about the jab and ensure that vaccination targets are met, Dawn reported, citing the official. The provincial government is aiming to vaccinate 40 million residents by November.
In addition to the SIM card restrictions, authorities might also ban unvaccinated people from going to parks, restaurants and malls, according to media reports.
Punjab is the most populous province of Pakistan, containing more than half the country’s total population, as well as the country’s second-largest city, Lahore. The regional government began its vaccination drive in March, but has struggled to drum up enthusiasm for the public health initiative. Mobile vaccination camps are being deployed near religious shrines across the province in an effort to make the jab more accessible.
Governments around the world have adopted a range of measures to promote vaccination efforts, but some policies have been criticized as gimmicky or heavy-handed.
Punjab isn’t the only region in Pakistan to take a more extreme approach to vaccination. In Sindh province, plans have been announced to stop the salaries of government employees who refuse to receive the jab.
As you can see, this vaccination campaign is NOT the mark of the beast but shows you how the devil will CAUSE the whole world to receive the mark of the beast to buy or sell in the right hand or the forehead soon. That will be in the middle of the upcoming 70th week after the beast is slain of a sword and rises again and will be dispensed by the final pope and false prophet.
Keep an eye on MBS and Pope Francis as they might just be the beast and false prophet to usher in the kingdom of the beast and new world order.
