Rumors of War

It seems that the rumors of war are in the news daily in and around Israel, as the terror attacks continue - while Israel braces for more:

South Tel Aviv: 8 hurt in terror attack outside nightclub

Eight people were injured in south Tel Aviv early Monday morning, when a terrorist from the West Bank carjacked a taxi and rammed it into a police road block protecting a Tel Aviv nightclub, before going on a stabbing spree.

Police said the terrorist, a 20-year-old Nablus resident, entered a taxi near the beginning of Salameh Street, and hijacked the vehicle, stabbing the driver in the hand. He then drove for approximately a kilometer down Salameh Street towards the Haoman 17 nightclub, which was filled with high school children at an end-of-summer party. At the time of the attack, almost all of the teenagers were inside the club.

"He then got out of the car, screamed Allah Akbar [God is Great], and went on a knife attack," a police spokeswoman said.

Terror Alert in South, IDF Beefs up Forces

The IDF has beefed up its presence in the south amid a report that Islamic Jihad terrorists from Gaza are planning to attack from the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt and bordering Israel.

The Sinai always has been an area which Bedouin tribes and terrorists – some of them Bedouin and some of them Arab terrorists from Egypt and Gaza – have tried to control. They have staked out more claims of sovereignty since the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

The latest terror alert comes almost two weeks after the murder of eight Israelis in multiple terrorist attacks near the Ovdat Airport on Highway 12, approximately half an hour northwest of Eilat.

A Terror Attack Every Two Days

In the 10 days after Palestinian raiders killed eight Israelis on the Eilat highway on Aug. 18, Israel has suffered five terrorist attacks, the latest in Tel Aviv Sunday night which targeted a big teenagers' back-to- school party.

Since then, Israel has received a specific warning that another attack is building up fast: A Jihad Islami team has departed the Gaza Strip for Sinai where it has set up another multiple attack from the Egyptian border on southern Israel.

Sunday night, dire security concerns closed two national highways, 12 and 10, to traffic, suspending the road links between northern Israel and the South – causing major disruptions in the entire affective region.

Since last week, Jerusalem has been on high terror alert level. Various signs of preparation for several attacks in the capital were spotted by security forces at sensitive locations.

Barak: We won't tolerate terror attacks in our daily lives

Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday assessed the current security situation following a terror attack in Tel Aviv and the threat of another attack near Gaza and said "we won't tolerate terror attacks that affect daily life in Tel Aviv or the country as a whole."

"We are on high alert in the South with the potential of a further terror attack similar to the one that took place ten days ago," Barak said during a visit to Ashkelon.

In other news around the world:

The Mystery of Comet Elenin

Astronomers and other outer space experts are speaking out on a comet expected to make a close call with colliding into Earth later this year. The consequences could be dire, so why are so many people unaware of it?

“I think it’s worth a raised eyebrow” says author Brooks Agnew. He’s done a lot of research on Elenin and tells RT that there are some rather strange coincidences regarding the comet that people should take into consideration.

Agnew says that NASA calls the comet just “a harmless little fuzzball of ice” that won’t come within more than 20 million miles from Earth. Others, he says, are claiming that this comet should raise concern since it doesn’t look like a comet, doesn’t act like a comet and is coming from outside of the area where most comets are accustomed to originate out of.

“There are a lot of things about this comet that don’t make sense,” Agnew says.

Another thing raising concern for the author is that another large asteroid is expected to come close to Earth around the same time. Coincidentally, he says, a new emergency alert system has been announced to debut the same day that asteroid will rock right by our planet.

Nationwide EAS Test to Last About 3 Minutes

More technical details about the upcoming national EAS test are trickling out of the FCC.

For one thing, the commission is confirming that the test on Nov. 9 will last for about three minutes, something of an eternity in modern-day radio.

The FCC says that during the test, FEMA will originate a “live” Emergency Action Notification code to all EAS participants, including radio and TV stations, cable systems, Sirius XM, satellite TV providers and wireline video service providers.

As part of the test, the public will be told the EAS has been activated for a national emergency, along with an audible notice that “this is a test.”

It looks like another asteroid will pass by earth just after Elenin passes by:

Huge Asteroid to Pass Near Earth in November

Mark your calendars for an impressive and upcoming flyby of an asteroid that’s one of the larger potentially perilous space rocks in the heavens – in terms of smacking the Earth in the future.

It’s the case of asteroid 2005 YU55, a round mini-world that is about 1,300 feet (400 meters) in diameter. In early November, this asteroid will approach Earth within a scant 0.85 lunar distances. [Photo of Asteroid 2005 YU55]

“The close Earth approach of 2005 YU55 on Nov. 8, is unusual since it is close and big. On average, one wouldn’t expect an object this big to pass this close but every 30 years,” said Don Yeomans, manager of NASA’s Near-Earth Object Program Office and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

Massive asteroid hurtling towards Earth

A massive asteroid will fly within the moon's orbit narrowly missing Earth later this year.

The space rock, called YU55, will hurtle past our planet at a distance of just 201,700 miles during its closest approach on November 8.

That is closer to Earth than the moon, which orbits 238,857miles away on average.
With a width of some 400metres and weighing 55million tons, YU55 will be the largest object to ever approach Earth so close.

And lets not forget Europe:

Polish finance minister says Europe at risk of "collapse"

Polish finance minister Jacek Rostowski has said the EU could "collapse" if leading countries such as Germany mishandle the financial crisis.

Speaking in Polish daily Gazeta Wyborcza on Monday (29 August), the minister said: "European elites, including German elites, must decide if they want the euro to survive - even at a high price - or not. If not, we should prepare for a controlled dismantling of the currency zone."

He added: "We have a simple choice: Solidarity or the collapse of Europe."


Caver said...

The last entry on the Euro kind of hit home as it made clear the dependence on the German financial sacrifices needed to keep the Euro afloat. Just this weekend I was reading an independent piece on how close the German population was to revolting on this and the acceptance of this "obligation" is anything but a given. These folk are NOT happy campers about all this.

One other interesting thought....if a few astute financial observers saw this outcome and publically warned about it for their investors months ago, how did the best financial brains in the universe fail to see it.....or did they fail to see it?? For a few independents without "insider" information to have seen with such clarity it seems criminal...or intentional...that the very best with all the insider knowledge could have had nary a clue. After all, economic cause / effects / projections is not rocket science. Its math.

As for this Elenin whatever....comet, brown dwarf, recycled discharge from ancient sanitation systems, or other is nice to start seeing mainstream scientific acknowledgment and correlation with some unexplained events and apparent preparations. Who knows what this thing is or isn't??? Suspect NASA does but, as is being pointed out at last, they appear to be a wee bit less than candid about it except for that internal warning that was given to their own employees about a month or so ago.

Certainly enough here to "raise an eyebrow" as the guest said during the interview on the link.

Robin said...

So let me see if I have this straight . . .the FCC is conducting a nationwide test on the same day this gargantuan meteor is hurtling passed Earth??? What are they THINKING?

Alice said...

Yikes, Robin! I didn't catch that! Glad you did! Very, VERY curious, indeed!

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem/Israel, lost loved ones, the persecuted church and our soon departure.

I loved the analogy Scott used the other day about when we see Chistmas decorations going up at Thanksgiving we know Christmas is near.

So if we can see the signs of the tribulation and the gog-magog, Isaiah 17/Psalm 83 events very very near then we know the rapture is just around the next bend in the road.

Looking forward to seeing our Lord and Savior and King of Kings face to face....soon and very soon!

Activate goose bumps!

Robin said...

Something else about the meteor story that's troubling. Remember this story from a year ago?:

Apparently, NASA wants to attempt to intercept a meteor scheduled to hit the Earth over two hundred years from now. Why wouldn't they go after a meteor that could hit the Earth in just a hundred years???

Hi all,
Thanks for the warm welcome. By the way I am in the Chicago suburbs.

Until very recently I would log in to Fox News on the internet to see what's going on in the news. However, since I was told about this blog, I find myself looking at the news in the world that really matters. Scott, I look forward to reading your posts (and everyone's comments) like I look forward toan email from my friends and family.

I was wondering if/when Elenin would be mentioned here. I have read much about it on the internet.

I also have recently learned much about the Jewish feasts and their role in these end times. I am not Jewish so I wasn't familiar. With the customs of the Jewish feasts. After learning more about them, I see Rosh Hashana as a major event in the end times. Whether it's Rosh Hashana this year (Sept 28) or another year, it is fascinating to know that Jesus is timing events around the Jewish feasts.

I pray everyone has a blessed day,

Alice said...

Kathleen, fellow resident of the socialist state of Illinois... (however, I'm "down-state", as we like to say)... Fwiw, I'm looking at Rosh Hashana this year, too!!!


P.S.... I also look to this site for all my news! In fact, I start my day with my cup of coffee and Scott's wonderful blog! Thank you, Scott!!!

Hi All,

Thank you Scott for all your hard work on this Blog; I too am using it as a primary source for my keeping up with the news. God bless you for your efforts & insight!

With regard to Elenin & its possible spiritual & Scriptural significance:

The astronomic (not astrology/astrologic) position of Elenin coming this September 2011 & how it possibly relates to Scripture is interesting. Could the Lord be using the motion of all this (Genesis 1:14 "let them be for signs") as a signpost for us -- just as He did with them when He came the first time in Bethlehem (see for example the DVD “The Star of Bethlehem” from the producer of “The Passion of the Christ” Stephen McEveety)? The developing Elenin astronomic pattern seems very similar to the one when it came time for Him to be born in Bethlehem. Consider this link --

With regard to Elenin’s September 2011 arrival & the time convergence with the Jewish feasts, consider this video -- Of course, no date-setting is being sought to be engaged in here; the convergence however is fascinating.

And the final resource I'll mention for your consideration concerns Elenin’s September 2011 arrival & its possible convergence with Scripture. Consider this July 12, 2011 radio program’s audio file --

Hope this helps in our being faithful Bereans and our watching for His gracious return for His Bride.

God Bless you all. And again, thank you Scott for all your hard work and faithfulness!


Scott said...

Kathleen - Thanks for the comments. A while back - maybe ~ several weeks ago, I did a full review of Elenin, including both extremes of what is being reported. Let me see if I can find it and I will link it in these comments. It also contained a NASA link where you could track the progress of Elenin over time, just by adding in the date. I'll go check

Scott said...

CB - above my last comment. For some reason your comment went to spam (no idea why ) - but I retrieved it - sorry - I still don't know why some comments go directly to spam (?).

Thanks so much for your comments and some very interesting ideas regarding the parallels with the end of this age....Thought provoking for sure. also thanks for the links, headed there now:)

Kathleen - here is a review of the overall situation and then an update FYI:

You messed that quote all up!

As they say "When you begin to see Christmas decorations being put up,'ll know that Thanksgiving is near"...

Thanks so much Scott, I'll be sure to read them. Not sure how I missed them first time around.
Hi GG - I'm nortwest suburbs
And hi to Alice downstate from us.

C.B. Looks like more interesting reading, thanks for sharing.

Robin said... "...What are they THINKING?..."

Robin, if you consider that the Illuminati has a "fascination" with numerology and the number 11, and if you reverse 9-11, [11-9]...

Maybe the question should be:
What are they PLANNING for that day??

Alice said...


DrNo, yet another freaky link... How'd you come up with that? Do you have friends in high places? (The WRONG high places) Do you know something that you want to share? ;)

...Just yankin' yer chain, as my dh would say... ;)

Audrey said...

Okay, this is off topic but I'm hoping someone here can help me... I have this friend of mine who loves science and thinks Al Gore is a genius. Didn't someone make a documentary that challenged Gore? I thought there was something but cannot find it!

Mike said...

Scott, can you help me explain this verse: 9 "Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and bucklers, the bows and arrows, the javelins and spears; and they will make fires with them for seven years.  Ezekiel 39:7-9. Does it mean: Following the defeat of Iran and Russia, Israel uses the weapons left in the land for the next seven-years.  The seven-year period clearly indicates this event occurs before the tribulation, since the tribulation itself is seven years. Does it mean we still have 7 years before Rapture? Thank's for your help.

Caver said...

Mike, between here and many message boards, that subject and passage has been debated long and hard. I think the bottom line is that scripture just didn't say with clearly.

It was noted some time ago on this blog by Scott, that Russia has perfected a man made material that can and is being used as both weapons and armor that burns much like wood.

Interesting times....for sure.

Scott said...

Yea, Grant Jeffrey talks a lot about this material (I believe its called ligonite or something close to that...In one of His books he goes into detail about this, as do some other authors) - but it is a very very dense, hard wood that is highly compressed which is used now in many of their weapons.

So Grant J questions if the Israeli's are burning this material during the Tribulation. Could be - its an interesting theory anyway.

DrNofog said...

Audrey, Here's some info from 1997, waaaayy back when I 1st started to pay attention to it:

[He's an Investigative Reporter who posts a lot for amongst others.]

If I can recall anything else I try to post it before the topic grows really "cold"...

Scott said...

The bible doesn't really tell us when that 7 year period occurs - whether it is during the Tribulation, before the Trib (unlikely but possible) or whatever. We don't know (although there is a lot of speculation on the topic)

EIther way, I have several ideas (and I am not typically dogmatic about things that require some degree of speculation, such as this) -

- I personally don't believe the burning of the weapons is part of the 1,000 year reign, simply because it seems inconsistent with the 1,000 yr reign and I believe Jesus cleanses the land during the extra 45 days (between the end of the Trib and the beginning of the 1,000 yr reign)...

- If the land is cleansed from the Tribulation, as it must be (given the condition of the earth by the end of the Trib) - then I believe that would include the remnants of war such as the burning of (whatever it is)

- Therefore, I would assume that Gog-MaGog would occur before the Tribulation, or within 45 days of the Tribulation beginning (which is possible...Maybe unlikely but who knows). The argument FOR this happening, however, is the fact that it IS 7 years and thats pretty 'coincidental'.

- I have always thought that Gog-MaGog would actually trigger the 'confirming of the covenant' of Daniel 9:27, which begins the Trib.

Just my opinion:)

Scott said...

DrNo - I promise you this...Heh :)
I saw that thanksgiving-Christmas thing and was thinking of correcting it and I thought "no, DrNo will come along and do that" - and low and behold you did! Ha! I'm sorry but that makes me laugh :)

You're getting predictable though...That will make you more conspicuous and easier to locate and track...You better watch it.......

DrNofog said...

Scott, dawg mentioned his thots a few months back that the unbelieving remnant who remain in Israel and take the Mark, instead of fleeing to Petra, would 'theoretically' still be able to burn the weapons for the last 3.5yrs...

I dunno... I would think that ol' AC would want to kill all Jews, mark or not, just because they were of God's Chosen People...

Mrs. C said...

Hi Doc & Scott :)
Yes, the weapons will be burned for 7 years, just as God says they will. More importantly, as He instructs His People to do just that.
As for the ac,remember, not the entire population of Israel is Jewish. In addition, there will Jewish people who wont follow God, even after He Miraculously delivers them from the Ezekiel 38-39 war. There will, sadly, be many in Israel that will follow the ac. The ac doesnt fight alone.
And yes Doc, the ac will attempt to kill the fleeing Jewish Believers at the mid-Trib, but God stops the ac in his tracks.
15And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
Revelation 12:15-16
15.And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16.And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

After that, the ac is enraged, and Gods Word tells us that the ac goes out into the Holy Land from Jerusalem, seeking to slaughter any Jewish People, or Jewish Believers just as you said Doc.

Revelation 12:17
17.And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

God Bless !

Mrs. C said...

Hi Brother Scott:)
Yes I agree :) Ezekiel 38 will be the catalyst for the "confirming of the covenant".
The weapons will be burned for the 7 year Trib period, as Israel will be in a primitive state. God tells us in His Word, that He instructs His People to physically "rob" those who have "robbed them, which means they will be taking the weapons off of the dead Gog forces. This tells us that the weapons are small arms that they burn.
God Bless!

Mrs. C said...

Hi Audrey :)
If I had the great displeasure of meeting Al, I would ask him why Greenland is called Greenland, and has he ever heard of the "little Ice Age?".
Then, I would share with him in my own simpleton way, the following...

Why is Greenland called Greenland?
Because…..Greenland was once green during the 12th & 13th centuries the Climate was warm enough to support farming. The diet of the Vikings during Greenland’s warm period was 80%land 20%sea when the climate became cold these ratios flipped to 20/80 Scientists are able to verify this by studying the bones of the Norse. Additional studies of trash pits also offer indirect proof of the dietary land/sea ratios.

Yes, there have been extreme global weather changes in history. The “Medieval Warm Period” was time of unusually warm climate in the North Atlantic region between 800- 1300 AD. Example, England exported wine to France. Vineyards also flourished in improbable regions like southern Norway and eastern Prussia. It was followed by the “Little Ice Age” which was a period from 1300 to 1850 AD (a date range which is argued over) when the Northern Hemisphere experienced colder than normal temperatures. The winter of 1776 was extremely cold. In fact, the turning point of the American Revolution was the key battle of Trenton that was won by Washington when he crossed the Delaware. Washington and his men were facing brutal snow storms that night and day, and were able to overtake the Hessian garrison because they were inside and asleep out of the cold. Though the storm caused extreme misery for Washington’s troops, it allowed them to approach undetected.
The extreme weather of the “Little Ice Age”, helped contribute to the birth of America. :)
God Bless!

GG said...

Hi Doc~

I am simply amazed! How you find something and link it back that quick is amazing. (ha ha). I get lost in the past tides of previous posts. Linkage must be one of your special talents. :)


Scott said...

Mrs C - Have you read Grant Jeffrey and his explanation of the materials used in these Russian weapons?

If not, I'll try to find it - its pretty interesting

Mrs. C said...

Yes Brother Scott, I have the GJ book from a lonnng time ago :) I remember looking it up on the Internet, when I first read about it. I also remember researching and checking out Russian gun stocks also. lol Really got into it :)
Lignostone is a trademarked name, and here is the site. Its a Dutch company. If this link shows up in Dutch, just click up in the right hand corner on the British flag, and it will convert to English. Fascinating stuff :)

God Bless Brother! :)

Scott said...

Ahhhhhh - right - I always forget the name - Lignostone! Thats it! Thanks for the link!

WVBORN56 said...

My bad on the quote Dr...but I think folks got the point anyway....I guess my goof stemmed from the fact at my house lights don't go up until after

James said...

Mrs C and everyone:

I have a question. Why has Grant Jeffrey pretty much removed himself from the public eye. He has removed all the videos from his website and like the videos that wereon the site all the articles are atleast 3-5 years old. His speaking engagements have been reduced to 1-3 a year. I like him and regard him as one of the best on prophecy but he seems to be absent when we need him more than ever. Your thoughts would be appreciated.


Audrey said...

Thanks Brothers and Sisters for your responses to my hijacked question. This info will certainly help in my next discussion!

DrNofog said...

Alice said... "...Do you have friends in high places?..."

Well sorta, but it's more like:
"I have 'high' friends in places..."

Scott said...

He is still on TV occasionally and I believe they are recent shows. I can't recall when I have seen him, but definitely within the past 2-3 months (I should have that time and channel saved).

I think he had a book come out a while back - maybe a year or two ago (?)
