Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“European officials say Quartet report expected to criticize Israel will not include any criticism that hasn’t been sounded in the past.”
“A Lebanese parliamentarian for Hezbollah openly called for Israeli civilians to be kidnapped in a future war with Israel.”
“The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Thursday blasted Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas after he claimed in a speech to the European Parliament that Israeli rabbis called to poison Palestinian water and accused Israel of carrying out mass murders of Palestinian Arabs.”
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“It is not at all comforting to me that US warplanes are supporting ground forces led by generals from a nation which calls the USA “The Great Satan.” It is obviously quite OK with President Obama though. If the Fallujah battle is between ISIS and Iran–both of which hate the USA, why are US warplanes helping either side? Why are they there at all? Why not send US warplanes to support the Kurds in their fight with ISIS? The Kurds are also hated by ISIS and are not Shiite Iranian allies. So why aren’t our warplanes being limited to fighting ISIS in league with Kurdish forces on the ground?”
It is odd and no one can really explain Obama’s love for the Iranian government but when it comes to ISIS both countries have an interest in seeing ISIS wiped out if for different reasons. Even Hitler and Stalin had a pact for a short time.
“Q. One thing we had wondered was, since the OT is so full of struggling twins and brothers: Cain and Abel, Esau and Jacob, etc., do you think that Lucifer and Yeshua were closer brothers in Heaven? Well, of course, as sons of Yahweh, they were brothers, but it seems there is more to this than meets the eye.
Also, I have trouble believing that we’re all going to be “raptured” and whisked off to heaven. Since there is no mention of the word “rapture” at all, some have interpreted this concept of meeting Him in the air as only for the chosen 144,000 (martyrs slain for Him) who will reign with Him (or serve as judges for mankind). When Yeshua said that the meek will inherit the earth, we take it to mean that His kingdom will be established on earth when it is restored to its former paradise under Yahweh’s Law.
A. The teaching that Jesus and Lucifer were brothers in Heaven is unscriptural. It denies the divinity of Jesus, making Him into a created being like Lucifer. Jesus is not Lucifer’s brother, He’s Lucifer’s creator (Colossians 1:16). The contention between brothers in Genesis is meant to demonstrate that what the elder despised, the younger revered.
Cain brought the works of his hands to the altar in violation of God’s law and was rebuked. Abel brought the blood of an innocent lamb as instructed and was accepted. Esau despised the right of the first born and traded it for a bowl of soup. Jacob sought it and received the inheritance. Both are meant to pre-figure the contrast between the first and last Adam. The first Adam violated God’s Law, lost his inheritance, and brought about man’s condemnation. The last Adam kept the Law, regained the inheritance and made it possible for man to become righteous.(Romans 5:18-19) “The first Adam became a living being, the last Adam a life-giving Spirit.” (1 Cor 15:45)
Paul called Jesus the last Adam because although as God He was before Adam, as man He came after him. Like Jesus, Adam is called the son of God (Luke 3:38) There’s no mention of the word rapture in scripture because it’s neither of Hebrew nor Greek origin, the languages in which our Bible was written. Rapture is of Latin origin. The Greek word is “harpazo” and means to be snatched away or caught up. It’s found in 1 Thes. 4:17, in a prophecy of the rapture of the Church. The Bible does not mention the 144,000 of Rev. 7 either being martyred or reigning with the Lord. The word rapture is like the word Lucifer in that both first appear in the Latin Vulgate translation and have stayed with us through the centuries since. The Lord’s Kingdom will be established on Earth following the 2nd coming.”
“Pound plummets to lowest level in 31 years as shock results show Briton opting 52-48% to quit 28-nation bloc.”
Could be interesting, could be meaningless. If more EU countries decide to ‘Exit’ and the number gets whittled down to 10 then things could get interesting. Daniel 7:24 and Revelation 17:12 refer to ‘ten kings’ meaning ten heads of state during the end days.These ten kings give authority to the anti-Christ to rule. I still lean to the argument that the ten kings will be coming from the Middle East not the EU it just seems more logical to me but who knows at this point.
