Articles of the Day 10/21/14: Who Are Satan’s Children?
“Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv notes that Hamas leader’s daughter is one of thousands of Gazans that it treats every year.”
When Hamas destroys Israel where will Palestinians go for medical care? This tenderness by Israel goes unnoticed by the world.
“‘Moderate’ Palestinian authority revives medieval libels against Jews, says poison was used as ‘war strategy’.”
This is an attempt to sway world opinion against Israel. It does not matter that it is not true just that it is said and repeated enough it will become true. Soon ‘human rights’ groups will pick up on this and sue Israel (Lawfare) based upon these lies. You can really see who Satan’s children are here.
“We are fine, our tunnels are fine, and our weapons, as well,” one of the diggers tells a Hamas affiliated news site.”
They are likely already using the billions given to them by the world to construct these new terror tunnels. How sad and pathetic it is that the world perpetuates the his cycle of violence then blames Israel.
“Tamar field is set to transfer up to 2.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year for seven years.”
This would seem to fly in the face of Psalm 83 but perhaps we should be looking at terror groups on the soil of Israel’s neighbors (i.e. Sinai groups) rather then the states themselves.
“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reflected a wide consensus opinion when he publicly sparred with the White House over plans to build in Givat Hamatos and allow Jews to move into Silwan.”
“Forget arms transfers to Kurdish fighters trying to defend Kobane, says Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.”
Further proof ISIS was an Erdogan creation.
“Turkey is “throwing a bone to try to get the US to commit itself against [Syrian President Bashar] Assad,” says Israeli expert.”
“Mursitpinar (Turkey) (AFP) – Kurds battling jihadists for the Syrian border town of Kobane welcomed a first US airdrop of weapons Monday as neighbouring Turkey said it will help Iraqi Kurds to support the fight.”
Likely too little too late. There are reports the tide has turned but we will have to wait and see.
“Refusal to slash some $300 million off gunboat sale over peace talks collapse rescinded by Germany after push by Liberman”
“Francis attempted in recent weeks to relate to the historic changes in the Catholic Church and those who are divorced or belong to the gay community, but failed. “The Church must respond boldly in the face of new challenges on such terms,” he stated today as hundreds of bishops rejected his proposal.”
God is not afraid of anything but he also does not approve of sin which is what the Pope is doing.
“Clashes between fighters from al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and Shiite Houthi rebels continued over the past several days as the two groups attempted to expand their respective advances throughout the country. After the Houthis took Yemen’s capital, Sana’a, in late September, AQAP declared an open war against the rebels and increased its operations against both the Yemeni military and the Houthis, especially in the central portion of the country.”
Iran and Saudi Arabia fight a proxy war in Yemen. Iran is winning.
“Changes to UN Security Council bode ill for Israel as two states friendly to Israel are replaced with two that are sure to vote for full membership for Palestine at the UN, and an American veto is no longer a sure thing.”
Now we will really see the antisemitism spew out of the UN.
“Q. Re: Birth Pangs Update. I’m not sure whether Jack Kelley is still around, but I have a question about the way he presents a view that Rev. 6:12, with the moon turning red and the sun going black, represents the beginning of Daniel’s 70th Week, while the stars falling from heaven per Mt. 24:29 marks its end. What about the stars falling from heaven in Rev. 6:13? How can these events be viewed as separated in time when they are mentioned in consecutive verses as a direct consequence of the opening of the Sixth Seal, and why was the subsequent verse 13 not mentioned in Kelley’s commentary?
A. Yes, I’m still around. There are two reason these passages can’t be pointing to the same event. First, while both events include falling stars, in Rev. 6:12 John said the sun will turn black and the moon will turn red like blood. In Matt. 24:29 Jesus said both the sun and moon will stop giving their light altogether. My focus was on the mention of the sun and moon in these passages, not on falling stars.
Second, Rev. 6:12 takes place near the beginning of Daniel’s 70th Week and Matt. 24:29 comes after the end of the Great Tribulation, at the end of Daniel’s 70th Week, just before the 2nd Coming. Some pre-wrath rapture believers try to say the Great Tribulation occurs only during the Seal judgments, but in Matt. 24:15-21 Jesus said the Great Tribulation won’t begin until people see the Abomination of Desolation in the Holy Place.
In Rev. 11:1 John said people will still be worshiping in the Temple. That means the Great Tribulation cannot have begun yet because Daniel 9:27 tells us the anti-Christ will put an end to sacrifice and offerings in the middle of the 70th Week and will set up the Abomination of Desolation then. The Great Tribulation will begin on Earth in Rev. 13, after Satan has been cast to Earth.”
“Q. Can you help me find the passage of Scripture that refers to what GOD will do to nations that divide Israel?
A. I believe you’re referring to Joel 3:1-2. Speaking of the end times, the Lord had Joel say,
“In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.”
Since Jeremiah 30:11 tells all the nations among which the Israelites have been scattered will be completely destroyed during the Great Tribulation, Joel’s prophecy will likely be fulfilled at that time and destruction will be the penalty for scattering His people and dividing His land.“
“Q. I fail to see how you can conclude that God does not judge nations whenever it is necessary, as He has throughout all of history. There are consequences for sin and there are blessings when God’s Word is obeyed and/or His principles applied. Nations and individuals are all subject to the law of “you reap what you sow.” This applies to the individual as well as Nations. This is not only true throughout the Bible, it is true in secular history as well. I am a simple man Jack, and this is just simple common sense and simple common Biblical sense.
A. Throughout much of history you would have been correct in your assumption. But at the end of the age, which millions of Christians including myself believe to be now, God has promised to destroy all the nations except Israel . Therefore the world can no longer be viewed as this nation or that one being judged as needed. Now there are but three groups of people on earth; the Church, who will be delivered from the end times judgment (1 Thes. 1:10, Rev. 3:10), Israel, who will be preserved through them, and the nations of the world, who will be destroyed (Jere. 30:11).
So the idea of any one nation having a great revival and earning back God’s favor to escape being judged is obsolete. Individuals within that nation will be saved from the time of judgment, but all nations will be judged and destroyed.”
“Q. I am taking a study on the book of John. In our current session a discussion came up on John 14:6. The leader of the group had a reference from a preacher who stated there are many ways to get to heaven and that accepting Jesus as our savior was just one. I tried to point out that the passage of John 14:6 was Jesus telling us that the only way to God and heaven is by believing in him and accepting him as our savior. Surprisingly I found myself in the minority. Please give me your thoughts on John14:6.
A. To me it’s pretty clear. In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Only by accepting His death as payment in full for our sins can we stand in the presence of the Father. One of the primary principles of Biblical understanding, sometimes called the “Golden Rule of Interpretation” says,
“When the plain sense of scripture makes common sense, seek no other sense; therefore, take every word at its primary, ordinary, usual, literal meaning unless the facts of the immediate context, studied in the light of related passages and axiomatic and fundamental truths indicate clearly otherwise.”
What explanation did they give you for not interpreting John 14:6 according to this standard?”
Beware of those who say ‘there are many ways to get to heaven’. Jesus Christ is the only way. Only through him can you be with the father. Not politically correct but it is true.
