A Weak Obama is Sarkozy's Gain in Middle East

You can see that developments are happening daily in the ongoing saga of the Middle East. Why? God calls Jerusalem the Center of the Universe. Israel is the apple of his eyes. I imagine that has something to do with the flurry of activity taking place. One can easily run out of breath trying to chase events.

Recently, I have been pinpointing events that specifically point to the fulfillment of prophecy concerning two, key wars that are fast approaching. While I will not re-hash all the ins and outs (see earlier blogs) it is difficult to use any other lens in understanding what is going on, at least for me. The Psalm 83 "Inner Ring," those nations bordering Israel that occupy the land promised to Abraham, are rapidly coalescing. All they need is some trigger event that will solidify their unity and bring about an attack or extreme threat against Israel. Meanwhile, the Ezekiel 38 & 39 "Outer Ring" coalition seems to be solidified. An interesting aspect is to see the overlap between the two rings, namely the participation of Syria. Maybe it's extreme hatred of Israel, and its constant fueling of terror is why Damascus is specifically mentioned as being obliterated (something that has not happened in all its history until now) and left a wasteland. hmmm?

Syria's President, Bashar Assad, is in the news again today attempting to stimulate a renewal of peace talks with Israel. After seeing that Obama is a waffle, he has turned to a key participant in the "Outer Ring" coalition to help mediate peace. I am speaking of city...Ankara. He has also bypassed Obama in favor of Nicolas Sarkozy of France. Sarkozy is part Jewish. He sees himself as a peace-maker...and really, he is. Some of you know my feelings about this guy. I will not state them here. HOWEVER, it is interesting to note that Syria is talking the talk of peace, yet continues to funnel massive amounts of arms into Southern Lebanon. Syria is fully given to the Iranian axis. Could it be that Assad has learned Ahmadinijad's stall tactics and is attempting to give them a go? Sure looks that way to me. This is just another twist in the wind while Israel prepares itself for war. Read this from today's Jerusalem Post.

'France Must Act,' says Assad as Meeting with Sarkozy Begins


French President Nicolas Sarkozy's meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad kicked off in Paris on Friday afternoon. Prior to the meeting, Assad stated that the talks would center on issues relating to Mideast peace, adding that "France must act" to ensure progress in the region.
Meanwhile, in an interview published Friday in the daily Le Figaro, Assad was critical of what he termed the US "weak link" in Mideast peace efforts and urged President Barack Obama to lay out a plan of action for renewed peace talks. Assad's visit to Paris comes two days after that of
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, giving the impression that France was positioning itself for what it has long sought - a larger role in the push for Mideast peace. On Wednesday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told Sarkozy during a meeting in the French capital that he would speak with Syrian President Bashar Assad "anytime, anywhere" and "without preconditions." However, a member of Assad's delegation in Paris told Israel Radio on Friday that Netanyahu's comments were "public relation exercise." He added that Damascus wanted Ankara to resume mediation between Syria and Israel. A government source clarified that the prime minister would be willing to talk directly with Assad, something that has not happened since Ehud Barak was in office 10 years ago.

Movie '2012' in theaters.

Some have asked what I think about 2012 and the Mayan calendar. Could the world end?

My Answer: Sure it could, but it won't! Why did the Mayan date keeper end at the Winter Solstice of 2012? A few plausible reasons:

1. He was getting really old by that date and died. It was a good stopping point.
2. His country was invaded and he had to run.
3. Maybe he just got tired of doing it.
4. A calendar that chronicles over 3000 years takes up a lot of rocks. (You know, carving on rocks?)

I'm not making fun of the fact that so many in the world actually sense that some ending is about to take place. That part is true. The world as we know it is about to change.....several times, in fact. However, IT IS GOD who controls the times and seasons, by his own authority. (Acts 1:7) If you are a pre-tribulation rapturist as I, this thing as at least 1007 seven years before a New Heaven and New Earth are created. (And that is predicated on the rapture happening today, and the Tribulation beginning immediately, which it may not.) So you see, the world is not going to come crashing down in 2012. I don't think the axis is going to shift, nor is global warming going to freeze the surface of the earth.

See the move....enjoy the special effects and the action.....and remember that it is purely science fiction with a little Algore thrown in!

Look up. That's where your redemption is coming from.
