"But I can guarantee this: Those days when the Jewish people remain passive in the face of genocidal enemies . . . THOSE DAYS ARE OVER!"--Benjamin Netanyahu
If you do not have time to listen to his entire speech, then begin at 58 minutes into it.  Powerful!

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint meeting of Congress, in which he outlined his opposition to a possible deal with Iran over its nuclear program. 
The prime minister’s speech was controversial because Republican congressional leaders invited him without the involvement of the Obama administration. At least 50 Democratic members boycotted the address, and Vice President Joe Biden was also not in attendance.
After House Speaker John Boehner gaveled in the session, C-SPAN cameras showed scenes from the House chamber of members of Congress and other attendees. The prime minister’s speech begins approximately 22 minutes into the program.

NOW IN OUR LIFETIME: THE BOOK OF REVELATION

                    77,972 VISITORS
Before they slit their throats, they gouged out their eyes.  But this is nothing new.  These savages did the same thing in 586 B.C.--Read Jeremiah 52:11.  Same people . . . same spirit!

"HOW LONG BEFORE YOU JUDGE THE PEOPLE . . . AND AVENGE OUR BLOOD FOR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO US?"---REVELATION 6:10
0012211554
                                      ISIS MURDERS 21 CHRISTIANS IN LIBYA! 
                            "The time when the power of darkness reigns" (Luke 22:53).
                               "Weep for yourselves and for your children" (Luke 23:28). 
Flash extra bit of news:
PM Netanyahu will address the US Congress next Tuesday, March 3, regarding the Iranian nuclear threat to Israel.  It is interesting to note that March 4 begins the feast of Purim, when Queen Esther took her stand against the same enemy that the Jewish people face again today. May we each be in prayer for Bibi, his message, and all that the Lord wants to accomplish through him at this time in history.
 

"I SAW THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO HAD BEEN BEHEADED FOR THEIR TESTIMONY ABOUT JESUS . . ." (Rev. 20:4).

"THEY WERE TOLD TO REST A LITTLE LONGER UNTIL THE FULL NUMBER WHO WERE TO BE MARTYRED---HAD JOINED THEM"  (REVELATION 6:11).

THESE MEN IN ORANGE ARE NOW SHOUTING UNDER THE ALTAR IN HEAVEN.  READ IT FOR YOURSELF IN REVELATION 6:9-11.

TODAY---RIGHT NOW---FEBRUARY 2015--IT APPEARS THAT THE "FIFTH SEAL" HAS BEEN BROKEN BY THE LAMB.

I ACTUALLY NEVER THOUGHT I'D LIVE TO SEE THIS DAY AND HOUR.  IT IS HORRIBLE BEYOND WORDS OR PICTURES.  BUT IT DOES BUILD OUR FAITH BECAUSE THE BIBLE CLEARLY PREDICTED THESE THINGS WOULD TAKE PLACE.
THERE ARE MORE THAN 30 MILLION MEMBERS OF ISIS.  SO DON'T THINK THAT THIS TERROR IS GOING TO GO AWAY ANY TIME SOON.
THEY BUTCHERED THESE CHRISTIANS ON THE SOUTHERN SHORE OF THE MEDITTEREAN SEA IN LIBYA FOR A REASON.  STRAIGHT NORTH, ACROSS THE SEA IS ROME AND THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE ROMAN  CATHOLIC CHURCH.  MEMBERS OF ISIS HAVE NOW THREATENED THE LIFE OF THE POPE!
Map of mediterranean sea
STRANGE . . . THE POPE JUST INVITED MEMBERS OF THE MAFIA TO RETURN TO THE CHURCH.  HE KNOWS FULL WELL THAT IF ANY GROUP IS  CAPABLE OF DEALING WITH ISIS IT IS THE MAFIA. 
BUT THIS SHOULD CALM ALL OF YOUR FEARS--:)-- ONLY 20,000 ILLEGALS HAVE CROSSED OUR SOUTHERN BORDER IN THE LAST 60 DAYS!  HOW MANY OF THEM ARE MEMBERS OF ISIS OR SOME OTHER TERROR GROUP?

Part 2 of "In our lifetime": Jeremiah 52.
What goes around comes around.  Sometimes people say,  "History repeats itself!"
This year is 2015. Backtrack 2,601 years.  It is the year 586 B.C.
Israel had a new king who was only 21-years-old, and he had only reigned for eleven years. His name was Zedekiah! It turned out that he was Israel's last king.
As a young buck he chose a bad  lifestyle and "did what was evil in the Lord's sight".  As you know, this automatically gets you in big trouble.
Because he was living an evil life, he did not seek the Lord regarding the conflict with Babylon and King Nebuchadnezzar.  He chose to rebel against the most powerful nation on earth.
That also gets you in big trouble!
King Nebuchadnezzar surrounded Jerusalem with his army and put it under siege for two and a half years.
The date was August 17, 586 B.C. If you do not understand Tisha b'Av look it up on Google.


No food came into the city and the famine became so bad that mothers were eating their own children.  "The last of the food was entirely gone"(Jeremiah 52:6).
One night King Zedekiah decided to escape with his body guards.  He only got as far as the plains of Jericho when he was captured by the Babylonians.  All his soldiers forsook him.
The people who captured him were the ancient ancestors of ISIS!---Same geographic area---same people.
You can pretty much guess what they did to Zedekiah.  Before they gouged out his eyes they made him watch as they systematically butchered all his sons.  That was the last thing Zedekiah saw on this earth!
Then his captors led him away to Babylon where he eventually died in prison.  I will leave it to your imagination as to how he was treated in that prison.
How would you like to be a prisoner of ISIS?
Fast forward 70 years:  Cyrus, King of Persia, sets the Jewish captives free and they rebuild the Temple and the city of Jerusalem.
Fast forward to the year 70 A.D.  The Jewish people did not learn from the first trip to the woodshed.  So they were invaded by the Romans and the Second Temple was destroyed.
Fast forward again:  May 14, 1948.  Israel becomes a nation again after 1,878 years.
Talk about a miracle!  And it was predicted by God in the Bible.
So . . . where are we now in 2015? What is next on the horizon?  Do your research.  I may tackle this subject in a future blog entry.
Enough for now!  You have plenty of information to chew on with this entry.









TAKE COURAGE, MY CHRISTIAN FRIENDS.  JESUS IS COMING SOON.  WHAT YOU ARE READING HERE IS ONE OF THE SIGNS.
IF YOU ARE NOT A BELIEVER IN JESUS, AND THIS STUFF SCARES YOU TO DEATH, CALL ON HIS NAME RIGHT NOW, WHEREVER YOU ARE, AND ASK HIM TO SAVE YOUR SOUL.  HE LOVES YOU AND HE WILL SAVE YOU.  FAITH IN HIM GUARANTEES THAT YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN HEAVEN WITH HIM!
"IF YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED."  THIS IS RIGHT OUT OF THE BIBLE: ROMANS 10:9
YES, THIS IS GOOD NEWS DURING A TIME OF VERY BAD NEWS.  JESUS IS REAL.  THE BIBLE IS TRUE.  AND WE HAVE THE "BLESSED HOPE" OF SPENDING FOREVER WITH HIM.  :)
ONE OF THE THIEVES ON THE CROSS BESIDE JESUS HAD NEVER GONE TO CHURCH.  BUT JUST BEFORE HE DIED, HE SAID TO JESUS, "REMEMBER ME WHEN YOU COME INTO YOUR KINGDOM."
JESUS REPLIED, "I ASSURE YOU, TODAY YOU WILL BE WITH ME IN PARADISE."
THE REFERENCE FOR THIS IS LUKE 23:42-43.
Billy Graham: "Storm is Coming!"
http://cnsnews.com/news/article/michael-w-chapman/rev-graham-imagine-outcry-if-21-muslims-had-been-beheaded-Christians

“The disputed fate of the 21 Coptic Christians abducted in Sirte, Libya is now clear and visible for all to see on video: while holding them down, Islamic State members shove their fingers in the Christians’ eyes, crane their heads back, and slice away at their throats with knives—all in the name of Allah and Islam, all as the slaughtered call out on the “Lord Jesus Christ.”


What is coming down the pike next when the Lamb breaks THE SIXTH SEAL?  You guessed it: THE GREAT EARTHQUAKE--REV. 6:12

And now our "President" wants to bring ISIS across our southern border.  Has this man lost his mind . . . or has this been his plan all along?  Can you imagine the picture above taking place in various parts of the United States of America?  What a day in which we are living!  http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/01/29/us-usa-syria-refugees-idUSKBN0L22WX20150129
But remember: THE LAMB BROKE THE SEALS!  THE LAMB IS IN CONTROL!  JESUS IS MAKING ALL THE DECISIONS REGARDING HOW THESE END TIME EVENTS PLAY OUT.  THIS IS GOOD NEWS!

NEW WORLD LEADER APPEARS FROM NOWHERE

A CHARISMATIC NEW WORLD LEADER APPEARS FROM NOWHERE AND TAKES CONTROL OF GREECE

 | February 11, 2015 246 Comments

A MAN HAS COME ON THE INTERNATIONAL SCENE, AND MANY WHO KNOW THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AS THEIR SAVIOR, ARE TAKING A HARD LOOK AT HIM.

“And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Revelation 13:2 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: We are looking for Jesus Christ, and not the Antichrist. But when we discovered this new “mystery man” who from nowhere has taken rock-star control of Greece, is backed by George Soros, has formed alliance with Russia and is talking with Pope Francis about a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. We thought you just might want to know about it.
His name is Alexis Tsipras, and it seems that he meets much of the criteria of the prophesied Antichrist. He was just elected as the Prime Minister of Greece. He is an atheist and a far left winger. His party in Greece is called SYRIZA. He has appeared out of nowhere in the last couple of years, almost magically. He has landed himself in a most precarious situation. Greece is broken. Is he the one to fix it, and also the EU which is struggling and groping at almost anything to revive Europe? All eyes are on this man.
On Sept 17, 2014 Mr. Tsipras met with Pope Francis at the Vatican. He was the first leader of a left-wing party that met the head of the Roman-Catholic church–ever. This is not surprising with this Pope, because he is rabidly ecumenical, and very “Green”,  always talking about global warming and people harming the earth. It has been said that Tsipras and the Pope get along famously, and are in one accord. No problem that one claims to be the head of the “faithful” on this earth, and the other, a staunch atheist. Could it be that there are unseen circumstances, not being divulged to the public? I would say, assuredly so.
who-is-alexis-tsipras-could-he-be-antichrist-666-mark-beast-greece-one-world-government
Alexis Tsipras has personally asked Pope Francis, in a meeting at the Vatican, to create a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. Click image for quote from Tsipras official website.
Terry James of Rapture Ready wrote a piece on the possibility of this man being the Antichrist, but he made strong point at the beginning of the piece, telling Christians that we should be looking for the glorious appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ to Rapture His church from this earth.
Here are two excerpts from Terry James article on “Nearing Midnight”
Antichrist Archetype Emerges
“…There has surfaced, in my view at least, an archetype of the leader to come who will be the first beast of Revelation 13.  This generation is not yet in the Tribulation, but is experiencing precursors to that last seven years that makes us know that a time of unprecedented troubles is just ahead. Likewise, a leader has arisen from the area of the reviving Roman Empire, one whose emergence makes the observant Bible prophecy student suspect ever more assuredly that Antichrist is waiting in the shadows of the immediate future.
Any such leader rising suddenly and dramatically out of the very nucleus of what was ancient Rome justifiably raises the eyebrows of Bible prophecy students.  The visible, physical reactions of those who have put him on his pedestal are quite interesting…glassy eyes filled with tears of joy, as they looked worshipfully at the man on whom they are hanging their hopes.  As a matter of fact, the slogan for his campaign was “Hope is coming!” — Terry James, RaptureReady.com
“I think we are looking at an archetype of the man whose name will add up to six hundred, three score and six.”—Terry” [1] – source
Here is part of a blogpost from christianpost.com:
“One interesting candidate that is clearly different from most of the others is Greek politician Alexis Tsipras He is the nominee for the Party of the European left; he also is the youngest of all the candidates at 39 years of age. He is a total atheist whose political roots are in socialism and communism. He remains un-married, but has cohabitated with his high school girlfriend for twenty years and they have one child.

Not only is he a wildly popular figure in Greece, but was elected unanimously to the SYRIZA a conglomerate of 13 far left radical groups. He has an Obama-like quality of being believed without a long established history of significant accomplishments or well accepted political plans or skills.” [2] – source
Alexis Tsipras sworn into office takes Civil Oath
“Alexis Tsipras, who was sworn in earlier this week as the new Prime Minister of Greece,has become his country’s first openly atheist leader. A survey noted that atheist leaders in Europe are becoming more prominent, with France and Croatia also being led by non-religious figures.
Tsipras was sworn in on Monday after his Syriza party won the elections in Greece, but he chose not to take a religious oath at the ceremony. Reuters noted that Tsipras, whose left-wing party has opposed austerity measures, broke from tradition when he decided to take a civil, rather than a biblical oath.” [3] – source
He is the first leader of Greece to refuse to take a religious oath on the Bible in the history of the country.
Tsipras has met with Pope Francis to discuss a peace treaty with Israel:
Tsipras said: “Even though we started from different points, ideological points, we believe we have common positions in the principles of solidarity, in the principles of justice, peace and cohesion.”
“We agreed on the need to continue the dialogue between the European left and the Christian church,” he said. “There is a need to create an ecumenical alliance against poverty, inequalities, against the logic that markets and profits are above people.”” Alexis Tsipras in meeting with Pope Francis
The Pope and the new Greek leader also discussed climate change. Pope Francis is open to everyone, well almost everyone. He embraces the Atheist, the Wiccan, really any beliefs are fine with him, as long as social justice is addressed and a common hatred of Capitalism is quite important.
Think of how the bible describes the character and nature of the Antichrist, while you read the following quote from Alexis Tsipras official website:
We discussed the need for peace to return on earth, for the immediate cease of war interventions…asked him to take an international initiative for the termination of conflicts in the Middle East. Finally, we agreed that the dialogue between the Left and the Christian Church must go on. We may have different ideological starting points; however, we converge on common values, like solidarity, love for the fellow Human being, social justice, and our concern regarding world peace.”Alexis Tsipras in his meeting with Pope Francis
Alexis Tsipras as the Antichrist? Pope Francis as the False Prophet? It certainly is pretty interesting, wouldn’t you say?
George Soros backs Tsipras
“The Guardian featured an article today about George Soros and the opening of his “Solidarity Center” in Thessaloniki, Greece, the first of many he plans to open in order to help Greeks who were hit the worst by the economic crisis.”
You see, it is a hobby of Mr. Soros to take his billions of dollars and play politics. He groomed Barack Obama for his entrance onto the world stage. He is part of the New World Order (Illuminati). He is probably one of the most evil people who ever walked the earth. Strong statement – I know. But how about Hitler? Of course, Hitler was incredibly evil. But did you know what George Soros did in Germany during the Holocaust? He was a teen and from a billionaire father. He was a Jew, but to save his own life, he turned in his fellow Jews to be loaded on the trains, heading for their deaths. He is unrepentant of these deeds – he says there is nothing to be sorry about.
Isn’t it interesting that the pre-elections took place in Thessaloniki (Thessalonica from the Bible) and now Mr. Soros has established his Solidarity Center in that same city? One thing I find fascinating is that in the Bible, the Antichrist was spoken of in much detail by the Apostle Paul in the book of 2 Thessalonians 2:
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.”
There are no coincidences with our God.
“According to the article Aliki Mouriki, a sociologist of the Greek National Center for Social Research said: “Greece, to a great degree, has become a failed state. It is unable to provide basic facilities for its citizens because of budget cuts. In the absence of public welfare, and with around one and a half million officially unemployed, growing numbers are looking for substitutes elsewhere.”
Last year, George Soros had offered Greek institutions 1 million dollars to buy heating oil, after mayors in different Greek municipalities requested help. “It had got to the point where some of the schools had not a drop of oil left. This month we got 20,000 tons from Soros and it has really helped. The government has now promised an extra four million euros but we have yet to see it,” said the mayor of Naoussa in Northern Greece.
George Soros has donated money for heating oil to approximately 190 Greek institutions such as orphanages, schools, nurseries and homes of the elderly and is planning to open “Solidarity Centers” around Greece. The first one opened in Thessaloniki just a few days ago and is already filled with applications.
George Soros’ philanthropy has been the subject of a great controversy. Parents’ associations all over Greece are refusing donations because they are suspicious of his motives. Yiannis Boutaris, mayor of Thessaloniki responded saying “Why Soros gives money to Thessaloniki or other Greek regions, or even to NGOs to help vulnerable groups, should not be the centre of attention. It is the fact that Greek tycoons, shipowners and those from the diaspora don’t follow his example.”[4]
Russia is looking to make an ally within its biggest enemy – Greece
The plot is beginning to thicken.
Greece’s defense minister was invited to Moscow to meet Sergei Shoygu, his Russian counterpart, in the near future. Greece is part of the 28 members of NATO. Russia has always regarded NATO is its biggest threat. Now, Russia appears to have a newfound interest in establishing a relationship with Greece’s defense minister. On Tuesday Kammenos met with both the US and Russian ambassadors to Greece.
“The discussion with the ambassador of Russia, Mr. Maslov, was also about the pending agreements between the Ministries of National Defence of Greece and Russia, the capabilities of a strategic cooperation, the organisation of the year of Greek-Russian friendship in 2016 which will take place in Greece and in Russia. I received an invitation by Russia’s Minister of Defence to visit Moscow within the next period of time,” Kammenos wrote on Greece’s Ministry of National Defense website.” [5] – source
The new Greek government at times has been critical of both the EU and NATO. Tsipras has spoken of withdrawing from NATO.
“On Nato, Syriza describes its approach as a ‘multi-dimensional, pro-peace foreign policy for Greece, with no involvement in wars or military plans.’ It seeks ‘the re-foundation of Europe away from artificial divisions and Cold War alliances such as Nato.’ … Last year on Syriza MP called for Greece to leave Nato altogether, though the comments were rapidly played down by senior officials,” writes BBC.
“The new Greek government is cause for concern, especially because Tsipras has voiced his opposition to NATO membership in the past,” Ian Bremmer told Business Insider last week. “And his early actions — these comments regarding sanctions, as well as his meeting with the Russian ambassador to Greece without hours of taking office — demonstrates that he is willing to engage differently with Moscow.”
It Was Just Like Obama’s First Election Night!”
Already there are comparisons between Tsipras and Obama. The adoring crowds. The rock star status. The people really don’t know much about their new PM. Sound familiar?
They know that Tsipras met his partner, and mother of his kids, in high school, when they both joined Student’s for Communism.
I have been digging into the Internet, attempting to find everything I can about Alexis Tsipras. What I am about to tell you will probably shock you as it did me. I want to stress that I have found this information on different Greek sites (translated of course) and it by no means proves that this is true. But if it is, then I do think that we “may” be looking at the Wicked (as the Bible calls him).
Here is what I have been reading:
“The father of Alexis Cipra, Pavlos Cipra, died in 2012. He was a billionaire with a direct link with the Mossad, he was the father of a slave BHL entrepreneur in Africa where he was trafficking in Africans. He sent dozens of Africans in Greece in order to exploit them, giving them just enough to survive in its construction companies and public travux.
The family business “SKAPANEA” was responsible for all major public works in Greece since the junta until today, construction / restoration of Orthodox churches through broadcasting. Like the Italian Mafia, the other companies have to pay a percentage to the “family” if they want to survive. “ [6] – source
Yes, you read that correctly. I have been finding people in Greece saying that Tsipras is actually “Cipra” and is of Jewish blood.
“Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.” Many End Times scholars have concluded that this passage of Scripture from Daniel 11:37 shows the Antichrist to be atheist, since he no longer regards the God of his fathers.
We as children of God, should be looking for the Blessed Hope of His appearing to catch us away from this wicked planet. But we should also be watchmen on the wall, discerning the times and events. In this way, we will be more informed to share our thoughts and Scripture with others.
 And when I look at Tsipras/Cipra – I see someone who may just be the man of sin of which the Bible speaks.
We won’t be here, but this should give us pause, and make us realize that we need to share the Gospel with everyone we know!!
MARANATHA!!!!!

Blessings in Yeshua

JUST SOME SIMPLE TRUTH

                    77,972 Visitors!


Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first
landed?  Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.


Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day?   Sorry
again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.


Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution?
Declaration of Independence ?
Bill of Rights?
Didn't think so.


Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England ?  No.


Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ?
No, they did not.
In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in
human slavery.  


Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country?  Not
present.



There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by
side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of
Civil Rights.


Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era?
Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are
subservient to men in the Islamic culture.   So much so, that often
they are beaten for not wearing the 'hajib' or for talking to a man
who is not a direct family member or their husband.   Yep, the Muslims
are all for women's rights, aren't they?


Where were Muslims during World War II?
They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself
met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from
the Nazi's in killing Jews.


Finally, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001?  If they
weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a
field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil,
they were rejoicing in the Middle East .   No one can dispute the
pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN,
Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news network's that day.  
To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of
that day.


And THAT is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here in America.

Can Israel Survive

Can Israel Survive?

Traditional pillars of the tiny democracy’s security have begun to erode.


Comments
840
Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East and North Africa. Eight million Israelis are surrounded by some 400 million Muslims in more than 20 states. Almost all of Israel’s neighbors are anti-Israeli dictatorships, monarchies, or theocracies — a number of them reduced to a state of terrorist chaos.
Given the rise of radical Islam, the huge petrodollar wealth of the Middle East, and lopsided demography, how has Israel so far survived?

Advertisement
The Jewish state has always depended on three unspoken assumptions for its tenuous existence.
First, a democratic, nuclear Israel can deter larger enemies. In the Cold War, Soviet-backed Arab enemies understood that Israel’s nuclear arsenal prevented them from destroying Tel Aviv.
Second, the Western traditions of Israel — free-market capitalism, democracy, human rights — ensured a dynamic economy, high-tech weapons, innovative industry, and stable government. In other words, 8 million Israelis could count on a greater gross domestic product, less internal violence, and more innovation than, say, nearby Egypt, a mess with ten times more people than Israel and nearly 50 times more land.
Third, Israel counted on Western moral support from America and Europe, as well as military support from the United States.
Israel’s stronger allies have often come to the defense of its democratic principles and pointed out that the world applies an unfair standard to Israel, largely out of envy of its success, anti-Semitism, fear of terrorism, and fondness of oil exporters.
Why, for example, does the United Nations focus so much attention on Palestinians who fled Israel nearly 70 years ago but ignore Muslims who were forced out of India, or Jews who were ethnically cleansed from the cities of the Middle East? Why doesn’t the world worry that Nicosia is a more divided city than Jerusalem, or that Turkey occupies northern Cyprus, or that China occupies Tibet?
Unfortunately, two of these three traditional pillars of Israeli security have eroded.
When the United States arbitrarily lifted tough sanctions against Iran and became a de facto partner with the Iranian theocracy in fighting the Islamic State, it almost ensured that Iran will get a nuclear bomb. Iran has claimed that it wishes to destroy Israel, as if its own apocalyptic sense of self makes it immune from classical nuclear deterrence.

TERROR


“We hoped for peace, but no peace came.  We hoped for a time of healing, but found only terror” (Jer. 8:15)

 Dear Partner,                        77,972 Visitors                        February 2015

Greetings in Jesus’ Name!

We have entered a time of terror!  And things will never be the same again.  Our days will never go back to being like they “used to be”.  We have entered the time of the end spoken by the prophets in the Word of God.

                                                     Terrorists?


When I grew up the word terror was seldom, if ever, uttered.  Today it is so common to hear about Muslims committing some awful act that people scarcely take notice. Even a beheading in the United States is briefly mentioned, and called by our liberal press as “workplace violence”!  It is a new day . . . a strange day, and a fear-filled era.

A beheading in the workplace and people hardly take notice?  It is difficult to believe that the conscience of our nation has become this calloused.
Petrol is poured on a Jordanian pilot in an iron cage and set on fire . . . by ISIS . . . more peaceful Muslims.

The KJV Bible uses the word “Woe”, but the New Living Bible translates this same word “terror”, and mentions it 105 times.  In Hebrew the word is “a.ma” (אֵימָה).

“I live in terror now!” (Job 30:15 NLT)!

Isaiah 54:14b--“for you shall not fear: and from terror, for it shall not come near thee.”

Revelation 8:13—“Terror, terror, terror to all who belong to this world because of what will happen when the last three angels blow their trumpets.”

It is very easy for those of us living in the U.S. to quote these verses and feel at ease.  But what about the parents in Muslim lands who must watch their children being tortured and beheaded? What about husbands who are forced to watch their wives and daughters being raped---family members forced to watch as hot oil is poured down the throats of fathers? I do not have the answer to questions like these.

During life’s journey we learn many things.  One thing we soon discover is that we do not have “pat” answers for many things that come our way.  And we find out that there is nothing wrong about saying, “I don’t know.”

I would much rather hear a pastor admit that he does not know, than to listen to him spew out absurd religious platitudes that have little meaning or substance. Honesty is always refreshing.

But today we do know Terror!  It is in the news each day; it is on our streets, even in our homes.  Just a simple trip to the supermarket or gas station can turn into an unimaginable nightmare of terror.

In Luke 21:26 Jesus said, “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”

It is not difficult to believe that we are living in the time Jesus predicted and that the powers of heaven are being shaken.

What to do?

Some people are selling everything they have and finding refuge in a very remote rural place.  They want their families to be “safe” during a very unsafe time.  You can’t blame them.  But the Scriptures clearly tell us that there will be no safe place on earth during the end times.  You might flee to the “safest” place on earth and still find yourself in the midst of an earthquake, tsunami, hurricane . . . or in the hands of terrorists.

The bottom line is that we all need Jesus!

Psalm 46:1 tells us . . .”God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

I take great courage by meditating on God’s Word.  During these past 50 years I have made more than journeys than I can count to preach the gospel in places that most Americans would call “dangerous places”. 

My life has been threatened.  I’ve hiked through dark jungles where only my guide knew the way out.  I was arrested in Haiti once, and in China the communists arrested me two times.  Five years ago the military flew me out of Haiti on a helicopter to the USNS Comfort hospital ship and saved my life from a 105.7 fever.  A thug in the inner-city put a knife to my throat.  If you find these experiences to be unusual, check out 2 Corinthians chapter eleven.

Armed masked gunmen in Israel were less than one-half a block from me as I sat alone in a parked car in the West Bank . . . totally helpless.  Only God’s protection kept Hamas from kidnapping me.

So the bottom line is this:  no matter where we are it is God who protects us.  And death is not the end for us believers.  Our blessed hope is that we will not only have life beyond the grave . . . but we have eternal life with Jesus and fellow believers.

But wherever I am, my hope, and peace is in the Lord.  Each of us must find this rest for ourselves. My prayer for you this month is that you will take the time to open your Bible and slowly meditate on His promises.  If you do this you will find peace in a non-so-peaceful time in history.

Hebrews 4:6—“God’s rest is there for people to enter.”

Thank you once again for helping us take the gospel to the nations.  Of course, this includes our own country, the United States.
