More News

I keep hoping that we'll have a news day in which one or two consistent themes appear, with a certain focus, but this isn't happening as a wide variety of different prophetically related news stories continues on a daily basis. Consistent with the past few days, there are a lot of stories in the news today, so I'll just post a paragraph or two on each:

Hezbollah warns Israel against maritime border threats

Hezbollah on Wednesday issued a stark warning to Jerusalem, vowing to protect its maritime rights against "Israeli threats."

The comments by Hezbollah deputy chief Sheikh Naim Qassem came on the background of Israeli plans to mark the two countries’ maritime border to ensure unrestricted access to lucrative natural gas reserves. Lebanon “will remain vigilant in order to regain its full rights, whatever it takes,” Lebanese news website Naharnet quoted Qassem as saying

This one from the land of MaGog, and it is completely predictable:

Russia Prevents Quartet from Demanding PA Recognition of Israel

Russia has prevented the Quartet from issuing a demand that the PA acknowledge Israel as the Jewish State as the basis for negotiations in exchange for Israel’s acceptance of the 1949 Armistice lines (which are commonly called '67 borders, but were never recognized as such) as the basis for negotiations.

Russia also refused to refrain from raising the PA statehood bid at the UN this coming September.

Nabil Sha’ath, who is responsible for international relations in the PA, spoke to the WAFA news agency. “Russia has fulfilled an important and decisive role in preventing the Quartet from making these declarations. We want to praise the Russian position, and thank its Foreign Minister, for his support of the Palestinians.”

The next two stories are firmly in the category of "the decline of America":

15 Examples That Show Many Americans Have Become So Desperate

More Americans than ever are desperate for money and many of them will do just about anything to get it. The crumbling U.S. economy has pushed millions of ordinary Americans to the brink of utter desperation.

In the United States today, we are actually witnessing the death of the middle class. Our jobs have been shipped overseas, the banks have enslaved us to debt, the government keeps finding more ways to tax us and the Federal Reserve keeps debasing our currency.

The system is dying and society is coming apart.

The only rational thing to do is to prepare for what is coming

How Globalism Has Destroyed Our Jobs, Businesses and National Wealth

Today, the U.S. government has surrendered massive amounts of economic sovereignty to global organizations such as the WTO, the IMF and the World Bank. The United States has also entered into a whole host of very damaging "free trade agreements" such as NAFTA that are costing our economy huge numbers of jobs.

Our politicians always promised us that globalism would bring us to a new level of prosperity, but instead that "giant sucking sound" that you hear is the sound of the U.S. economy being hollowed out.

That is exactly what the policies of the U.S. government have been doing for decades - they have been waging war on jobs.

Both political parties have been eagerly pushing us into a globalized economy. Both political parties have told us not to worry as thousands of businesses, millions of jobs and trillions of dollars have left the country.

This is Bohemian Grove week. More news will be coming out later in the week, as the meeting has just started:

Brits to shut grid for solar flare

The British government has been warned that a massive surge of energy from the sun could hit the Earth in the next 18 months. In a worst-case scenario, it could blow out the national grid and leave parts of the country without electricity for months.

Scientists have warned that Britain could be disabled by a solar flare five times more powerful than one in 1989 that plunged six million people in Quebec into darkness and caused power disruption as far as California.

The next story is in the category of "unbelievable":

Religious Freedom Group Sues Perry Over Planned All-Day Prayer Event in Texas

A Wisconsin-based religious freedom group is suing Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a possible Republican presidential contender, in an effort to block his promotion of and participation in an all-day Christian prayer event to be held Aug. 6, arguing that it violates the constitutional separation of church and state.

The Freedom From Religious Foundation, which claims more than 16,000 members, including 700 in Texas, filed the federal lawsuit Wednesday in Houston, contending that Perry’s actions violate the Constitution's Establishment Clause by “giving the appearance that the government prefers evangelical Christian religious beliefs over other religious beliefs and non-beliefs.”

More trouble ahead for the Eurozone

EU finance ministers are hurrying to thrash out a new deal to rescue the Greek economy for a second time. But in the meantime, Athens' money woes are looking contagious. Italy is the latest European country whose financial stability is starting to wobble. As Europe's third largest economy, financiers are acting fast, in the knowledge that they simply can't afford to let Rome go under.

Gold price hits record high as eurozone woes spread across Atlantic

Panicky investors drove the price of gold to an all-time high yesterday, amid renewed fears for the future of the European and US economies and rumours that European finance ministers are set to call yet another crisis meeting this Friday, presumably to coincide with what are expected to be disappointing results from so-called "stress tests" on the strength of leading Italian, French and German banks.

Tarpon Springs homeowners wonder if homes will be swallowed by sinkhole

An engineering report on potential sinkhole activity in a Tarpon Springs neighborhood has homeowners wondering if their homes are going to be swallowed by the earth.

The Geotechnical Engineering Services Report commissioned by the city, following a sinkhole June 16, found "the subsurface soils ... are indicative of potential sinkhole activity." It means a city park and several surrounding homes are sitting atop ground that has voids in the subsurface that could collapse into a sinkhole.

Unstable sinkhole swallows Leesburg store

The sinkhole that swallowed up part of a building in downtown Leesburg is not stable yet.

Leesburg firefighters said the hole is about 70 feet wide. On top of taking out part of the building, it also took out part of Crosby Street, and caused a water main to burst. No other property has been damaged, and no one was hurt, but the city has set up a fence to keep people from going near it

Yellowstone Supervolcano Getting Ready to Blow Its Cork

Researchers report the super-volcano underneath the state of Wyoming has been rising at a record rate since 2004. Its floor has gone up three inches per year for the last three years indicating the fastest rate since records began in 1923

Satellite images acquired by ESA's ERS-2 revealed the recently discovered changes in Yellowstone's caldera are the result of molten rock movement 15 kilometres below the Earth's surface, according to a recent study published in Nature.

In revelations 3, it mentions a "synagogue of Satan" who "claim to be Jews". Could somebody please enlighten me on who this "synagogue of Satan" is?

Hello Scott
Please excuse my digression from your news.

Hello Stephen

I posted the following addition to my critique of a new book on Lamb & Lion this morning.

In his new book “Shadows of the Beast” , on page 22, Jacob Prasch rightly states that “Exegetically 2Thess is an Epistle in its literary genre and is designed to be read LITERALLY… there is no need to read into the text things it does not state or to engage in ‘reductio ad absurdum’ verbal exercises to negate what it does plainly state. Paul’s explanation to the Thessalonians says exactly what it means and means exactly what it says…”


Jacob then follows up this correct statement with a one line demonstration of ‘how to’ give direct opposition to that statement “… THE RAPTURE AND THE RESURRECTION CANNOT HAPPEN UNTIL THE ‘MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED.”

This is followed up with his ‘proof’ Scripture in the NASV of 2Thess2:3 isolated from its CONTEXT of preceding and proceeding verses.

2Thess 2:3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for IT will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, (NASV)

Astonished gasp at his production of his own ‘reductio ad absurdum’ of a NON-LITERAL interpretation! Wow Jacob, I know you have been poorly, but what a load of old cobblers!

Pray do tell what *IT* refers to?

To find that answer we need to, at the very least, look into the context of the preceding verse 2

2Thess2:2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that THE DAY OF THE LORD HAS COME.

Paul plainly states that *IT* is ‘THE DAY OF THE LORD’ and says nothing about *IT* being the ‘Rapture and Resurrection’ of the Church. That is as blatant a piece of eisegesis that I have ever read!

The history of this letter reveals that the Thessalonians had been deceived into thinking they were NOW in ‘the day of the Lord’ – why would that trouble them if Paul had previously told them ‘first you will see the a/c and then you will be in the darkness of ‘the day of the Lord’ when He comes to judge everyone?’

Not only had Paul explained to them in his first letter, exactly the opposite; but vs 3 – in CONTEXT – ACTUALLY says (using Jacob’s own style)
‘THE DAY OF THE LORD cannot happen until the ‘man of lawlessness’ is revealed’.

2Thess2 does not debate the TIMING of the Rapture at all; it is reassurance that the Thessalonians were NOT IN ‘the day of the Lord’ – literally – it was NOT PRESENT… because… The objective statement is NOT directed at the Rapture. The grammar and the historical background makes this certain. Pauls first words in vs 3 are ‘Let no one deceive you…’ and that deception is still working on the church to this day as Jacob Prasch ignores his own advice with ‘ verbal exercises to negate what it does plainly state.’


P.S. Nathan Jones followed my comment with valuable insight if you care to read more?


Scott said...

Sue - good points, I agree.

Plus, I just want to add - I believe it is always dangerous to place an entire "doctrine" on one interpretation of one scripture. Usually (especially in prophecy) multiple scriptures to back up a certain view.

Having the view that the Church will be gone before the AC is revealed is based on a multitude of scriptures.

Anyway - Anon - can you give the exact scripture that you are referring to?

Dylan said...

Scott, I think anon is talking about revelations 3:9
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Ok, here we go again.... I think
that what it comes to is that different people will have various opinions, I can see that, BUT I
will NOT GO AGAINST Paul's words.

If you guys think I am wrong, that's
fine, you are entitled to YOUR
interpretation, BUT I am entitled
to mine.

That is the bottom line here.

In the end, of course, we will see
WHO is right and WHO is wrong...

On another topic, GOLD is NOT going
up due to Greece, ect....

It is going up due to HOT social
mood.....and my wave counts in
the mining companies say this GOLD rally is over REAL SOON...

If you own Gold or Silver, PLEASE

Stephen, thank you for the advice but I'm holding on to the silver. No, its not just an investment....its survival.

Inflation will kick in big time should we last that long....its a natural progression 18-36 months after they start inflating the money supply without hard assets to back it up with. We've inflated the heck out of it and inflation is already hitting hard and we're seeing it in fuel and food. Yea, the index is low but they conveniently took food and fuel out of the inflation index. That particular lion ain't lost his teeth yet, in fact, I think they're just starting to grow.

But, if and when the hard times hit and the dollar crashes or inflation is running rampant silver is still the barter of choice. Remember, back when the last all silver dime was struck it would buy a gallon of gas. Now, only 70% of that same dime will buy a gallon of gas.

No, thank you, I think I'll hold on to my barter goods.

If cali was to have a decent size quake with a decent size tsunami between now and july 31, the russian river would boil up and sweep all these jerks out to sea! we can hope, can't we? ;) ally

Anon, regarding "the synagogue of satan"... I have a clock radio that wakens me every morning to a Christian station. Back in January and February, Dr. J. Vernon McGee was on at 6am and he was going verse by verse through the book of Revelation (pre-recorded sermons--he died in 1988). I distinctly remember him answering this question. And thankfully, archives his sermons so well, I was able to find the exact sermon where he addresses it in a matter of seconds. Here is the link:

His explanation of "the synagogue of satan" begins around 16 or 17 minutes into the sermon, if you want to fast-forward it.

But Scott can probably give us a GREAT answer too!

Lol, Ally, you always MAKE my day!!! (((hugs)))

EI, You should invite the Rodinator over here to give Stephen his latest, different POV on Imminency.

I would invite him myself but I don't think he likes very much ever since he caught me dabbling in "witchcraft"...

Gov. Jerry Brown signed the legislation a few hours ago REQUIRING all Ca. textbooks hail the achievements of GLBT folks making their sexual orientation the focus. I have been following this for 5 months and felt in my gut that the final signature creating a law like this would bring a definitive response, even if it is just that the protection is lifted from that part of our land. May Adonai shelter our California brothers and sisters. It may be a 'Lot' moment and it is time to get out.

One of my faborite commentaries regarding the Book of Revelation is Walvoord's "The Revelation of Jesus Christ", so I'll quote him:

The below is in the context of understanding that the church at Philadelphia 'manifested a loyality to the name of Christ Himself and had made a public confession of their trust in Him. In recognition of this fact, He says to them':

"' Thou hast not denied my name.' As the result of their faithfulness in witness He promises that their adversaries, described in verse 9 as "'synagogue of Satan', will be forced to acknowledge that the Philadelphian church were true servants of God.

The reference to the synagogue of Satan and to those who say that they are Jews is to unbelieving Jews who were opposing the witness of the gospel in Philadelphia and making it difficult for Christians to bear a good testimony before the pagan world."

Walvoord goes on to quote Andrew Tait:

"The most inveterate enemy of the Church of Christ were the Jews. We read of them in Thessalonica, in Smyrna, and here in Philadelphia; and in ever case most hostile and embittered against Christians. In Palestine they were the sole persecutors of the CHurch; and elsewhere, if they did not directly oppose the gospel, they instigated others to do so. In Symrna, the same term 'Synagogue of Satan' is applied to them as here"
