Articles of the Day 1/13/14: 7 Signs and Hezbollah talks tough
It seems the more desperate Hamas is the more fantastic their rhetoric becomes. Egypt is not destroying Israel’s only source of income like they are Hamas’s. They are trying to make nice with everyone (except Israel) because they are so weak right now. They have reconciled with Iran and are trying to reconcile with the PA. Yep times are tough for Hamas. I wonder really who will still be around in 8 years? Remember God’s curse in Genesis 12:3.
In comments posted on the Guard’s website, he said, “Hezbollah’s capability has improved so tremendously in recent years that it can hit and destroy any target in the occupied lands with very little inaccuracy and pinpoint ability.”
If this is true then why wait? Why not attack now? More bark then bit I think. Israel has repeatedly hit Hezbollah over the last two years with very little response from Hezbollah. They are as weak as Hamas right now.
“Israel will drive all the way to Baalbek, if I don’t miss my guess, in order to occupy the missile and rocket-launching sites of Hezbollah. There are simply too many rockets–and now missiles with too long a range–for Israel to think they can use air power alone to destroy those missiles and rockets before they are launched..”
Always so much to comment on from Jack Kelly, this is a good post, I wanted to comment on a few of the signs:
1. Israel Will Be In The Land … Ezekiel 36:8-12, 37:21
Obviously no doubt here. An amazing fulfillment of prophecy!
2. Jerusalem Will Be In Jewish Hands… Luke 21:24
It is for now, but of course the world is doing everything it can to wrestle it away from Israel. Not going to happen world.
3. A Muslim Coalition Armed And Led By Russia Will Attack The Holy Land… Ezek. 38:2-6
The consensus seems to be Russia but I think it could also be Turkey. Interesting that the Islamic government there is mired in a scandal that could bring down the government.
4. The Ancient Roman Empire Will Re-Emerge As A Political Force… Rev 17:9-10
We shall see how this comes about. Most people believe this will be European centered but remember the Roman empire was primarily around the Mediterranean too. People often leave out the countries of North Africa. Isn’t interesting that right now with the exception of Israel all countries in the Med are in some state of turmoil.
5. The World Will Embrace A Single Religion… Rev 13:8
Very interested to see what form this will take. Will it be Catholicism? Will it be Islam? Or will it be something like a New Age Christianity? Either way it will be against God and deceive many. Once the Rapture happens what might fill the void left by Christianity?
6. The World Will Accept A Single Government… Rev 13:3
Disturbing as this is it will happen. The world will have to be in pretty bad shape for this to come about.
7. Babylon Will Re-Emerge As A Prominent City In World Affairs… Rev 18:2-3
Lots of conjecture on what Babylon really is. Is it the physical ancient city of Babylon? Or is it a metaphor for the new one world religious system? Could it be the new economic system? Personally I don’t think it is the ancient city. I think it is the new religious system but Jack makes a pretty good case that it is the actual city.
