Articles of the Day 2/27/15: Evil Destroys. Good Builds Up.
Repent! The time of the Lord is close at hand. Open your heart to Jesus Christ. He is knocking at your door. Let him in and take up your cause before the Lord. Jesus Christ died for your sins, he was killed for them, he rose again and he will return again. Read Matthew 24:4-14 and ask yourself are these things taking place now?
Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“In addition to all of the other simmering issues, Obama and Netanyahu entertain contradictory views of Iran’s role in the region. Syria stands at the heart of their disagreement. Whereas Obama is comfortable with the rise of Iranian power in Syria, Netanyahu and, to be sure, the Israeli security elite are deeply discomfited by it.”
“If Hamas has the resources to fund and arm a new “Liberation Army” consisting of 17,000 fighters, why does it continue to demand that the international community allocate billions of dollars for the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip?”
“BEIRUT: The Lebanese Army is facing an imminent terrorist battle, Hezbollah deputy chief Sheikh Naim Qassem said Thursday, after the Army waged pre-emptive attacks on militant positions along the border with Syria.”
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“BEIRUT — A U.S.-led alliance launched air strikes against Islamic State on Thursday in an area of northeast Syria where the militants are now estimated to have abducted at least 220 Assyrian Christians this week, a group monitoring the war reported.”
“A senior Iranian official on Thursday threatened to “wipe Tel Aviv and Haifa off the map” in the event of an Israeli attack on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear installations.”
More map wiping talk from Iran. Who could sleep if these guys get nukes?
“Baghdad (AFP) – Islamic State militants armed with sledgehammers and jackhammers have destroyed priceless ancient artifacts in Iraq’s city of Mosul, a video released by the jihadists Thursday shows.”
Evil destroys. Good builds up.
“JERUSALEM (AP) — In his sharpest criticism yet, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that world powers “have given up” on stopping Iran from developing nuclear weapons in ongoing negotiations.”
It does seem like the West has surrendered. The question is what, if anything, will Netanyahu do about it. Negotiating terrorist release and not finishing off Hamas make me think he is more bluff then fight. Will he even be in power next year?
“(Reuters) – Egypt’s military killed dozens of suspected Islamist militants in an operation in Sinai, security sources said on Wednesday, while state media reported the kidnapping of a businessman in the region.”
“Shiite group and regime forces unable to claim significant achievements against opposition forces in contested region.”
“Q. In one of your articles you mentioned Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17. I was wondering in your opinion what do you think will happen first? I wanted to also know when will the peace that the Apostle Paul spoke of in I Thessalonians 5:3 come about? What event will bring this on?
A. No one knows whether Isaiah 17 or Psalm 83 will happen first. They might both happen at the same time.
I believe the peace Paul spoke of in 1 Thes. 5:3 will follow the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and is the false peace that comes at the beginning of Daniel’s 70 the Week. Daniel 8:25 says that the anti-Christ will initially appear as a man of peace and deceive many people that way.”
“One of the biggest stories of the last year or so has been the recognition within the public square that a new round of anti-Semitism is gaining momentum, seemingly all over the world. I have written in the past about the new anti-Semitism, which is the hatred of the state of Israel in the same way an individual Jew has been hated historically, and its rise since 911 and of Christian Palestinianism gaining within the church. With these developments, the world is currently witnessing the shift into high gear of Jew hatred.”
“Pew report finds anti-Semitic incidents in 77 countries in 2013, the highest number in seven years.”
“Challenging an upbeat assessment by US Secretary of State John Kerry, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper Thursday declared 2014 the deadliest year for global terrorism every recorded. Testifying on Capitol Hill, he contradicted Kerry’s earlier testimony that the threat was diminishing.”
Remember when Obama said the War On Terror was over? Clueless.
“Deal signed in Amman to pump Red Sea into Dead Sea as part of efforts to boost Israel’s water supply.”
“Maj.-Gen. (res.) Tal Russo, whose appointment as head of the Depth Command was announced in January, officially took charge during a ceremony attended by IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon. The Depth Command is in charge of planning and coordinating military operations far from Israel’s shores. Russo replaces Maj.-Gen.”
I believe the creation of the Depth Command\Corps is one of the key elements that will lead Israel to victory in the Psalm 83 war.
