Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“Maj. Gen. (res.) Gadi Shamni, former top commander of IDF forces in West Bank, asks at security conference if ‘this is what we want to be’”
Leftest thinking has infected the armed forces and intelligence community of Israel. These kind of public statements give ammo to Israel’s enemies. I know the IDF does not enjoy policing the Palestinians but that is the reality. Sometimes generals don’t get to pick their wars.
“Significantly, the PA news agency assumes that stabbing Israeli civilians on a Jerusalem bus makes Alyan worthy of “ascending to Heaven.”
“Wilayat Sinai, an organization identified with the Islamic State, has recently suffered a series of serious blows from the Egyptian army. Most prominent among them was the air strike in early August 2016 that killed dozens of senior commanders, launched as part of a targeted campaign against terrorism in Egypt in general, and in Sinai in particular.”
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“The Islamic State group in Syria is about to lose access to Turkey’s porous border, the Pentagon says.”
Should have happened years ago but are we finally seeing the beginning of the end of ISIS?
“Eight Israel Air Force F-16I fighter jets participated in ‘Red Flag’ exercise over Nevada, which ended this week.”
“ANKARA – Turkey, which patched up strained ties with Israel and Russia, aims to normalize relations with Egypt and even rebuild ties in future with Syria, where it has launched a cross-border offensive, the prime minister said on Friday.”
“There has been no slowing of the exponential technological development that characterizes our current society. These three links detail a new wearable electronic technology which has obvious biblical implications for any student of the Bible and its latter-day prophecies. These links discuss a new, wearable “tattoo” made of metals like gold and copper which are excellent electric conductors. These wearable tattoos will also place an electronic, interactive device on your body which can monitor you and transmit all kinds of wireless signals. They are designed to be worn just above your hand on your wrist, but I don’t see why they couldn’t be adapted to be fitted anywhere on your body.”
“Q. Thank you for your wonderful site! I have a question. Is the seven year tribulation period all considered to be God’s wrath? I have heard that his wrath isn’t until the last half which some feel lends credit to the mid tribulation theory. They say to prepare for some very horrible times for us until the rapture takes place. But if one considers the rapture as following the same pattern as the Jewish wedding ceremony then you would have to think we would leave before or at the very beginning of the seven year period. Thank you for your thoughts on this.
A. God’s Wrath begins in chapter 6 of the Book of Revelation. It is specifically mentioned in Rev. 6: 16, which announces that with the Seal Judgments God’s Wrath has begun.
In Rev. 15:1 the Bible says that with the completion of the Bowl judgments, God’s Wrath will have ended. This tells us that God’s wrath has three components, the Seal judgments of Chapter 6, the Trumpet Judgments of Chapter 8 and the Bowl Judgments of Chapter 16.
Advocates of the so-called Mid Trib position incorrectly measure the Great Tribulation as a seven year period when in fact it’s clearly described as being 3 1/2 years long (Rev. 12:6 & 14). Never the less, the rapture will precede all of God’s Wrath (1 Thes. 1:10 & 5:9).
This doesn’t mean we’ll miss out on all the rough times however. In most parts of the world the Church is enduring great persecution even now with over 3000 Christians dying for their faith every day. I believe we’re entering into a time where even in the USA the Church will endure much hardship.”
God’s wrath is coming. The only real question is will you be ready before it comes. Being ready means accepting the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart.
“Summing up, the Pope stated that “to commit a crime against the natural world is a sin against ourselves and a sin against God.”
Another false teaching by the Pope. Pope Francis is a man using his influential position to push a political agenda on everyone else. A typical Liberal. But even worse he is using the fear of God and his position to do so. No where in scripture is it mentioned that man can sin against God by harming the environment. The closest might be Revelation 11:18 to justify this.
“And the nations were angry, and your wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should give reward to your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear your name, small and great; and should destroy them which destroy the earth.”
However reading it context, scripture is referring to those ‘who destroy the earth‘ are those who continue to act in rebellion against God by their corruption not the actual physical destruction of the environment.
