Articles of the Day 8/28/15: Chatter About This September
Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“IDF says Hamas is solely responsible for what happens in Gaza.”
“A year after war with Israel, Gaza rulers boast of revitalized efforts to prepare its fighters for the next round of violence.”
Instead of schools, factories, libraries or even mosques, Hamas chooses to build war capability used to attack Israeli civilians. Hamas has given in to their hate. They ignore the needs of their own people so they can kill God’s chosen people.
“Figures show 12 rockets have hit Israeli sovereign territory 1 year since last summer’s ‘truce,’ many more fired but didn’t clear border.”
“Compound spread over 27 dunams to include two helipads; Palestinians mired in deep financial turmoil.”
Life seems to be good for the Palestinians. What do they need a state for? You get the leaders you deserve.
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“Analysts reveal Erdogan’s Kurdish crackdown was meant to reverse elections defeat, but new poll proves it had the exact opposite effect.”
“Ahmed Hiyari, leader of the al-Hussein Brigades, reportedly succumbs to wounds after two days in hospital.”
“Expert explains why Congress must still kill nuclear deal.”
“A senior Israel Defense Forces (IDF) official said late Monday that the Jewish state is more prepared than it has ever been to strike Iran’s nuclear sites if called upon.”
“A senior Iranian official said his country and Russia have not been successful in finalizing a widely contested sale of advanced S-300 missile systems due to a disagreement over the sale price, Israel’s NRG reported on Thursday citing the Turkish Anadolu news agency.”
“Q. In Mat 8:29 the demons asked Jesus if He came to torment them before the time. This tells me they may not know the day or hour that Christ returns but they might know when the tribulation starts. If so, the speed at which evil is unfolding causes me to think they do know and have increased demonic activity to meet the appointed time. Any thoughts?
A. I believe they can read the Bible like anyone else and knew the Lord’s first visit was not the time for them to be tormented. But now they can sense the progressive weakening of the Holy Spirit’s restraining force (2 Thes. 2:7) and know they will soon have free reign on earth, at least for a while.”
“Q. In the natural order of things, “birth pangs” have a foregone conclusion — progression to true labor, resulting in the birth of a child. Given that the “pangs” appear to be increasing in frequency and intensity worldwide, what event or events, according to Scripture, will signify that the “pangs” are over, and labor has begun in earnest?
A. Following the context of Matt. 24 leads us to the conclusion that the transition to true labor occurs at the time of the abomination of desolation (Matt. 24:15-21). That’s the first specific sign the Lord gave to the final generation concerning the 2nd Coming. Rev 10:6-7 confirms this, saying when the 7th angel sounds his trumpet there will be no more delay. The 7th Trumpet brings about the beginning of the Lord’s reign (Rev. 11:15), the expulsion of Satan from heaven (Rev. 12:7-9), and the commencement of the Great Tribulation (Rev. 13:1-5) which ends with the 2nd Coming (Rev. 19:11-16).”
There is a lot of chatter about this September. Many people are building up the expectation that something must happen in September. We all want the Lord to come for us quickly but temper expectations. Do not be surprised if nothing happens. If you are unaware, here is a video summarizing the hype, beware this is really rampant speculation. Some of them are stupid like…‘its the end of summer‘…..oh no what will we do!
“Others were outraged at the plight of these Christians and the lack of response by the global Christian leadership.
“The Pope is mute and deaf,” concluded one Israeli, while another pointed out that Christian leaders like the Pope “only pay attention when Jews and Israel are involved.” “
It is sad and baffling but the Pope has more pressing matters like…..Climate Change??
Despite deep differences on some social issues such as abortion, Obama and the pope are expected to focus on areas of agreement. The White House said economic opportunity, immigration and refugees, and protection of religious minorities were high on the agenda.
“It’s going to be a come-to-Jesus moment — no pun intended — for the many politicians who want to claim the mantle of Pope Francis,” said Michael Wear, a former White House official who led faith outreach for Obama’s 2012 campaign.
“In a way, Pope Francis has become a conscience for this age of the world. When President Obama came to office, he too had that aura for at least the first couple of years,” said Stephen Schneck, who runs the Catholic politics institute at Catholic University of America. “But Pope Francis’ message is moral and religious. He’s not going to be talking about legislation.”
The White House has praised Francis for involving himself in issues usually left to politicians. In a rare move, Francis personally intervened to help the U.S. and Cuba restore relations, writing leaders of both countries and hosting their delegations at the Vatican for final talks. And on climate change, a cornerstone of Obama’s desired legacy, Francis added the weight of the pulpit by publishing a landmark encyclical calling climate change real and man-made.
False prophet alert! This Pope has inserted himself in world politics instead of the mission of God. It will be interesting to see what he says. Well things like one world religion, interfaith religion, one world government come up? He will also be addressing the UN. What will he say there? Speaking to the US Congress and the UN is unprecedented for the Vatican. No doubt this Pope is different and believes worldly things over Godly things. He is also giving ‘god-like’ approval to very liberal (demonic) ideas.
“Blood-splattered Bible found lying next to victim.”
God bless Christians who stand up for Jesus Christ in the face of persecution.
“The band was ordered off the field because the Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art” was a part of their halftime show — in violation of a federal court order.In 2013 a student sued the district over a series of Christian meetings that had been held on school property, the newspaper reported. The district later settled the lawsuit and acknowledged they had violated the student’s First Amendment rights.”
Unbelievable! It was just a song glorifying God. But these demonically inspired songs are accepted by the world as ok. It is all backwards. What is wrong is presented as right and what is right is presented as wrong. The falling away from God has brought us to this point.
