Every day now there seems to be another addition to the continuing march toward war in the Middle-East. I am not alarmed! Hey, it's all been predicted....pre-written by God. What encourages me about the eventual fulfillment of the Gog and Magog War from Ezekiel 38 and 39 is that I wholeheartedly believe it will usher in the great Latter Rain spoken of by the prophet Joel. Wisdom tells us we should not be cowered down in fear, but be living with our hearts open for a flood of the Spirit of God. And REMEMBER, we are only passing through. Our loyalty is only to the Kingdom of God. Yes, I love my country, but my country is slipping away. The only thing that will last is the Kingdom.... Therefore, I pledge allegiance to the King....
Netanyahu gives a magnificent, moving speech to the United Nations...that after President Obama's self-deification before the same body. hmm
President Obama reveals the "newly-discovered" Qom nuclear site in Iran. Of course, it was then discovered that Obama has known about it for some time, including those days when people were losing their lives at the hands of Iran's radical regime. Obama said nothing about either during the post-Iranian-election uproar.
Obama threatens Iran with greater sanctions...then promptly boards Airforce One for Denmark. It was imperative that he be the first President to ever speak to the Olympic Site Selection Committee! How Awesome is He!
Iran responded to Obama's diplomatic threat by launching the new Sahab-3 missile successfully. Tipped with a nuclear warhead, the Sahab-3 could hit Israel......AND EASTERN EUROPE where there is no missile shield. $%^&*
French President Nicolas Sarkhozy calls President Obama and his view of the world NAIVE! Way to go Nick! You said what most of us are thinking...all in your own French way.
Afghanistan General has trouble getting a return call from the White House and goes on 60 Minutes to state his case. Uh-oh.... again...Obama went to Denmark.
School Children learn to sing Obama's Praises. Christianity is banned, but Obama is Glorified. He really must be the messiah.... NOT (Sorry, sarcasm got the best of me. I apologize...NOT)
In the meantime, Christianity Today (October 2009) put out this article on the state of Evangelicalism in America. Here are the basic tenants held by most teens and young adult Evangelicals. (Survey conducted by Smith and Denton)
1. A God exists who created and orders the world and watches over human life on earth.
2. God wants people to be good, nice, and fair to each other, as taught in the Bible and by most world religions.
3. The central goal of life is to be happy and to feel good about oneself.
4. God does not need to be particularly involved in one's life except when God is needed to resolve a problem.
5. Good people go to heaven when they die.
That ought to excite you about the state of Christianity in America! Now, read this article and see how Israel is playing the game with Obama and Ahmadinijad.
Israeli cries of "hold me back" may lead to Iran strike
Aluf Benn: Haaretz Daily
Aluf Benn: Haaretz Daily
In a succinct analysis, Haaretz's chief military correspondent examines to the pros and cons of Israel's strategic options vis-a-vis Iran. But the dynamic may leave the country with no choice.So far Israel has chosen the alternative - preventive diplomatic steps. Advocates of this approach say that it has succeeded in delaying the Iranian bomb by a few years at a low diplomatic and security cost to Israel. Yet its usefulness is gradually eroding as Iran gets closer to the bomb. Under these circumstances, Israel is trying to show that its patience is wearing thin. It is trying to persuade others that if "the world" does not act, it will embark on war against Iran on its own. To strengthen the credibility of the message "Hold me back," a strike force has been amassed while the military preparations are being reported in the foreign press with unprecedented frequency. The force buildup is also important for deterrent purposes in the event Iran obtains nuclear weapons, the Americans attack its nuclear installations and Israel bears the brunt of a counterattack.
Yet as the buildup continues, the temptation to use force grows. As Israel becomes more self-confident, its rhetoric escalates and the domestic pressure "to show them" - or as the prime minister likes to say, "not to come out suckers" in light of the infuriating, incendiary speeches of Iran's president - swells. This is the Iranian paradox: Creating an offensive option does not widen the government's room to maneuver. Rather, it narrows it while pushing Israel to abandon the preventive strategy and to attack.
In recent months, it seems Israel's preventive strategy is paying dividends. The Iranian regime has lost some of its strength following the rigged presidential election and subsequent repression of the opposition, while Obama has taken a tougher public stance against Iran. It is in Israel's interest to see both trends gain momentum - Iran's weakening and America's determination. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's challenge in the coming months will be to withstand the burgeoning pressures to attack Iran, keep his composure and not become frightened at his own speeches warning of "a second Holocaust" while adhering to the preventive strategy. This is the most effective way, one that will give incentive to the West to rein in the Iranians without risking harm to Israel.
WOW! BUCKLE YOUR PROPHETIC SEAT BELT....I prognosticate that we are only a few weeks away from Israel's attack on Iran. I could be wrong, of course, so no picking up stones.
