I want to talk about the patterns of recent presidents. We will be looking at Barak and Israel’s next war.
Ecclesiastes 1:9 “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
(10) Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.”
In order for us to understand the recent patterns of presidents, we have to understand the stories which are in the Bible actually repeat themselves in other times in history. The best way to explain this is to explain how God looks at time. There is linear time, comparative time and circular time. Linear time is when something occurs as time progresses. This is how most people look at time. Planning a vacation, planning a birthday party and so on. We plan for something in the future because we can not go back and change anything that has already happened.
Comparative time is when two events occur at the same time. An example is in 1517 the Ottoman Empire took over Palestine and Jerusalem and at the same time Martin Luther started his reformation movement.
The last is circular time. This is when events begin in one place and go full circle and end in the same place. A circle is 360°. Everything that God has created moves in a circle. The solar system moves circular through space. The Earth circles the sun every 365 days. All planets are round or circular. God’s time moves in circles and events are repeated in history. History repeats itself in cycles and many time these cycles will land on numbers that are very important Biblically. For example the number 40, 50, 70, 100 and 120. What is the significance of the years 17787, 1813, 1839, 1865, 1891, 1917, 1943, 1969, 1995? These years are separated by 26 years and during those 26 years there was a major battle or war that took place.
Another example is at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry He fasted for forty days and at the end of his ministry he was alive (after the resurrection) for forty days. Also, at the beginning of His ministry there was a Mary, Joseph and Herod. At the end on His ministry there was another Mary, Joseph and Herod. On the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit was poured out on Jerusalem and in the end it will all take place in Jerusalem. Jesus ascend from Jerusalem and when He returns He will return to Jerusalem.
Fifty is a jubilee cycle and you can go through Israel’s history and find things that happen in 50 year cycles. In 1917 the Belfar Declaration allowed the Jews to access back to Palestine, in 1967 was captured and became, again, the capital of Israel. The number 70 is important also: Jeremiah 25:11 “And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.” Also, from the birth of Jesus to the destruction of the temple was 70 years.
There are hundred year cycles. The most unusual hundred year cycle involving presidents is the Lincoln/Kennedy connection. The events of these two presidents are bazaar enough that you can not attribute them to chance. Lincoln was elected in 1860, Kennedy in 1960. Both vice-Presidents were named Johnson. Andrew Johnson was born in 1808 and Lyndon Johnson was born in 1908.
John Wilkes Booth was born in 1839 and Lee Harvey Oswald was born in 1939. Lincoln and Kennedy have seven letters in their name and Booth and Oswald both have 15 letters in their name. Both vice-Presidents have 13 letters in their name and both were southern Democrats before becoming vice-President. Both Presidents has their elections contested, both Presidents were involved in civil rights. Both Presidents were Congressmen, Lincoln started in 1846 and Kennedy in 1946. Both saw their deaths before being shot. Both were shot on a Friday, both were shot in the head and both were shot in the presence of their wives, both assigns were killed before going to trial, both experienced the death of a child while in the White House. Lincoln’s secretary’s name was Kennedy and Kennedy’s secretary’s name was Lincoln. Both secretaries warn the President not to go to the placed where they ended up being assassinated. A southern radical shot each President. Lincoln was shot in a theater and hid in a warehouse; Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and hid in a theater. Lincoln was shot in the Ford Theater and Kennedy was shot in a Ford limousine.
To look at how history repeats itself from beginning to end, let’s look at the Herod of Jesus’ day and Yassar Arafat. Both were leaders of an area known to Gentile leaders as Palestine. When both were sick there was an eclipse of the moon, the cause of their illness was unknown, both went outside their home to find a cure, both has political dealings with the Jews, both were hated by the majority of the Jews, both met with men from Babylon and Persia, both dealt with traitors in a violent manner, both died in the month of November, it was speculated that both may have been poisoned, both had huge funerals inside the country and both had dealings with Bethlehem, Herod is buried their. Both had innocent children killed, Herod had them murdered and Arafat had children killed through terrorism. Both were reported dead before they actually died, both escaped death several times during their lifetime, both named no successor and confusion came as to who would replace them, both had a terrible body stench before their death, both had special houses in Jericho, both lived in a time when Christ was coming to the earth, both had huge amounts of wealth that was hidden from most of the population. From all of this we see how history does repeat itself not just in yearly cycles, but also beginning to end cycles as well.
Let’s move to 1991 and see the comparison of the 1st Gulf war and a war in Biblical times. We can find this I Kings 20:17-29. When we invaded Iraq, Saddam Hussein was the ruler of Iraq. He had invaded the oil fields of Kuait and was possibly looking at going on into the oil fields of Arabia. In the Old Testament there was a king in Israel, Ahab, and the King od Syria his name was Ben Hadad which means ‘fearce’. Ben Hadad was from the area of Tekrit. Saddam Hussein was also from the area of Tekrit. I am going to give you the parallels of the Old Testament war and the 1st Gulf War. In the OT war there were 32 kings aligned with there were 34 nations aligned with the US. In the OT war only the young men when to war, in the 1st Gulf War only our young men went to war. In the OT war they were told to keep the captured enemy alive, in 1st Gulf War our coalition forces were told to do the same. In the OT war the battles were fought in the plains and in the 1st Gulf War the battles were fought in the plains (desert). In the OT War the captured were tied up in sackcloth and later released, in the 1st Gulf War those whom we captured were tied up and then released. In the OT War Samaria killed an estimated 100,000 men, during the 1st Gulf War there were approximately 100,000 killed. In OT War Hadad hid in an inner chamber to protect himself and in the 1st Gulf War Saddam hid in underground Bunkers to made to restore things back to Hadad and in the 1st Gulf War an agreement was made to restore things back to Saddam. Ben Hadad was physically spared in the OT War just as Saddam was spared in the 1st Gulf War. Hadad eventually regrouped and fought a second war just as Saddam regrouped and fought a second Gulf War.
In the second war that Hadad fought he did not have 32 kings aligned with him as the US didn’t have 34 nations aligned with it during the 2nd Gulf War. Israel did have an alliance with Judah in the second war that is worth pointing out because the symbol for Judah is a lion. During the 2nd Gulf War, our main ally was Great Britain, whose symbol is a lion. Britain claims that they are descendants of Judah, which is why their symbol is a lion. In the 2nd OT War there was a lying spirit released to convince the people to join in on the war and as we all know during the 2nd Gulf War Bush has been accused of lying about the information that convinced those who joined with us to join the fight. Those that come up against God usually have fatal results. In a prophetic parallel we see that 2Kings 19:6 “And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the LORD, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.
2 Kings 19:7 Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and shall return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.” Saddam during the 2nd Gulf War returned to his hometown and was not tried in the World court but in his home land and was hung.
So, from these few examples we can see that history not only repeats itself, it works in cycles. In 1992 Perry Stone was in prayer preparing for a meeting just after Bill Clinton was elected president and the Voice of God spoke to him and declared that a spirit of Ahab and Jezebel was coming to Washington. So he began to study the lives of Ahab and Jezebel and at the end of Clinton’s second term as president, he was amazed at the parallels between Ahab and Jezebel and Bill and Hilary Clinton. These comparisons are taken from 1st Kings 18 to 22.
Ahab and Jezebel lived in an Ivory house, Bill and Hilary lived in a white house. With Ahab and Jezebel, Ahab ran the country, but Jezebel controlled thing behind the scenes, We saw with Bill and Hilary, that she was the one instrumental putting together Hilarycare and from other inside sources we know that Hilary ruled with an iron fist being involved with more than the 1st Lady is supposed to be. The OT couple were involved in a land deal gone bad and Bill and Hilary were involved with Whitewater, a land deal gone bad. In the OT land deal, a man died and in Whitewater Vince Foster died a mysterious death that is still questioned today.

With the OT couple, Jezebel signed papers concerning the land deal and Hilary signed papers on the Whitewater deal when she was with the Rose law firm. In the times of the OT couple walking in sin was a ‘light thing’ to them and when Bill was found out about concerning Monica Lewinski, many in his party felt that what a man did in private was his own business. With the OT couple, they were accused of following the sins of the Amorites. During the Clinton administration, Bill had a don’t ask don’t tell policy for the military. The Amorites and Moabites were know for offering their children as sacrifices and Bill vetoed the partial birth abortion ban three times. During the OT couples reign, the righteous were blamed for all the trouble in the land, during Billary there was always a vast right wing conspiracy against the Clintons. During Ahab’s reign the Bible says that a lying spirit came to him and caused him to be deceived, Bill Clinton lied under oath to a grand jury about the Lewinski affair and face impeachment. Ahab lost power but Jezebel continued to control things, Bill left office and Hilary was elected to the Senate in New York and is now head of the State Department.
