The Obama administration reportedly wants Israel to implement a "silent freeze" of Jewish homebuilding in eastern Jerusalem and the mountains of Samaria and Judea to coax the Palestinian Authority (PA) into agreeing to negotiate with Israel.
According to Israeli daily Maariv, the United States wants the freeze to be undeclared and partial. The idea is that Israel will not build new neighborhoods but will be allowed to build within existing ones.
Here comes the bottom line:
Any transgression of these terms will result in "harsh steps" against Israel by the U.S.
The reality of the situation, apparently unknown to Mr Obama is seen in the Israeli response, and goes beyond 'political speak':
MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) was quick to chop down the idea. "After ten months of a loud and unprecedented freeze, it is outrageous to see that the Obama administration still believes that construction in the settlements is indeed an obstacle on the road to negotiations," she said.
"There is no difference between a silent and loud freeze," she added. "The public's clear choice of the right wing will not allow a second freeze of construction in Judea and Samaria, no matter what statement comes out of the Prime Minister's office."
The PA has insisted that Israel freeze all construction in Judea and Samaria as a precondition for negotiations. However, when Israel did freeze construction for 10 months, he did not sit down at the negotiating table, yet demanded that the freeze be extended.
Rapidly Inflating Volcano Creates Growing Mystery
Should anyone ever decide to make a show called "CSI: Geology," a group of scientists studying a mysterious and rapidly inflating South American volcano have got the perfect storyline.
Researchers from several universities are essentially working as geological detectives, using a suite of tools to piece together the restive peak's past in order to understand what it is doing now, and better diagnose what may lie ahead.
It's a mystery they've yet to solve.
Uturuncu is a nearly 20,000-foot-high (6,000 meters) volcano in southwest Bolivia. Scientists recently discovered the volcano is inflating with astonishing speed.
Researchers realized about five years ago that the area below and around Uturuncu is steadily rising — blowing up like a giant balloon under a wide disc of land some 43 miles (70 kilometers) across.
"It's one of the fastest uplifting volcanic areas on Earth," de Silva told OurAmazingPlanet."What we're trying to do is understand why there is this rapid inflation, and from there we'll try to understand what it's going to lead to."
Biometric registry slammed in light of personal info theft
Government Services Minister Michael Eitan (Likud) called for the immediate reevaluation and halt of the establishment of a biometric population registry and identity system following the announcement Monday that sensitive personal information of every Israeli citizen was stolen by a government contractor and put on the Internet.
"The state is building a time bomb that will explode in all of our faces," Eitan said of the biometric program that is set to begin a pilot program next month. "There is no disagreement that the biometric database is dangerous, but [they] are making false promises that the database will be hermetically sealed with unprecedented security."
The biometric population registry, Eitan said, "will be leaked and broken into also, and it's only a matter of time. I hope that the lesson will now be learned and a complete reevaluation will take place in relation to the dangerous and useless biometric database."

"The State Can Seize Control And There Is Nothing I Can Do": November 9th Emergency Broadcast Test
The Blaze recently reported that at 2 p.m. EST on Wednesday, November 9th, The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Federal Communications Commission will conduct the first-ever national test of the Emergency Alert System, where radio and televised broadcasts across the country will be disrupted for roughly…three-and-half minutes:
“In essence, the authority to seize control of all television and civilian communication has been asserted by the executive branch and handed to a government agency,” wrote Buck Sexton in our earlier report.
While emergency broadcast tests are typically used by state and local governments to issue severe weather alerts and other emergency information, there has never been a nationwide activation of the system before.
Meanwhile, the thought of the nation’s broadcast systems being completely cut off for nearly four minutes — in addition to broadcasters being stripped of control — has left many, including Glenn, feeling unsettled over who, exactly, will have power over our airwaves.
Police State Fascism Now Rampant: Martial Law Next
Currently, the state of Tennessee is acting as a testing ground for the federal government’s assault on the citizen’s right to privacy. TSA goons dressed in state sanctioned garb, and heavily armed “law enforcement” cretins with drug sniffing dogs, are harassing the people of Tennessee on interstate highways and bus stations.
They are doing this of course all in the name of stopping terrorism. It is interesting how these state simpletons can at the same time terrorize the general populace while protecting them from terrorism.
This is not a new concept, but in the U.S. today, police state abuses are not only greatly increasing in numbers, but also are becoming more invasive as every day passes.
The mainstream media claims that Tennessee is the first state to fight terrorism statewide, but illegal checkpoints are now being set up all across the country. The DHS now claims the right to stop and harass anyone, ask for their “papers,” and search them within 100 miles of any U.S. border.
Those who choose not to fly so they can escape the groping, radiation, and humiliation of airport “security” dished out by the evil TSA, may now find themselves at risk of this same type of treatment when they simply choose to take a Sunday drive. We are quickly becoming consumed by this fascist state called America!
Actually, warrantless searches are now common, everyday events, and many get the blessing of the very corrupt U.S. Supreme Court. Last May in an 8 to 1 ruling, the Supreme Court gave a green light for police to break into anyone’s home should they “think” that the resident was hiding evidence.
Police and government agents, including the military, are training and preparing for civil unrest. What do they know that the masses don’t? They have military equipment, even in some cases tanks, and they are receiving ongoing military training.
This does not bode well for our future. It is a blatant show of force, and the intent of the Department of Homeland Security, and all its police partners across the country is total control of the citizenry.
Our situation is worsening by the day, and the state apparatus is preparing to fight against its own citizens here at home. This is a precarious situation that could spiral out of control, and we are terribly close in my opinion, to being in an uncontrollable police state environment.
When this happens, the obvious next step will be Martial Law.
Once that stage is reached, it may be too late to stop the coming onslaught of the totalitarian state.
Ambassador Robert Ford may have had ties with the CIA.
Did anyone catch this about 9 minuted video concerning this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=1I-qlqVcnOQ#at=376
Nope. Not enough security in Biometrics... It's gonna take something better... Perhaps something that requires the purchaser to be PRESENT when they purchase something...something that cannot be lost or stolen...
Martial Law is Next - I think The Occupy Wall Street "movement" is becoming violent, fed by the influence of subversive groups, and will soon be used as justification for martial law in those cities. The average protestor is naively playing into it.
Love following this blog, Scott. God bless.
failed Democrat politician sues conservative group for the loss of his election". If this case goes to court and the judge rules in favor of the plaintiff, this could set a dangerous precedent for ALL conservative groups and free speech. Yet another step towards imperialism.
Anon - my thoughts exactly - and thanks :)
Alice - I see where you are going with that ! :)
Jec - I hadn't seen that, thanks for the link
Geared - they were talking about that on the radio today - unbelievable.
I can almost hear the footsteps...We're drawing CLOSE to the Trumpet call.....I mean that.
I can remember thinking back after 9/11 how the new "security" measures would only be the beginning. We ask how God could allow something as horrible as that tragic day to happen, but He was just starting to set the stage for the tribulation atmosphere. He's got a bigger picture in mind. Even when we can't see it, we just have to trust Him. I can't wait to talk to Him in person, which it looks like it won't be much longer until I can. Maranatha!
Scott, there's something else that's been on my mind today. The coming FCC total blackout of communications scheduled for 11-9-11-- I think it will be an exercise for the powers that be to test the conversion and transfer of a single global currency within the US banking system. Why do I think that? Because of the Pope hinting at a central global bank, which according to the Illuminati influences ,means forewarned is forearmed.
Hello everyone.....1st i really appreciate the fact that we can post questions and thoughts on this site even tho sometimes may be a little off topic. not many site hosts allow this kinda freedom.
2nd this may be a reoccuring question for me but here it is: just how bad will things get,especially for christians, before we're outta here? i think we should brace ourselves for rough times ahead. thoughts from anyone is appreciated. especially but not exclusively,from e.i and nofog (ur remarks are usually well researched) and u too scott:)
Do you remember the mysterious deaths of the racehorses at Newbury U.K. on the 12th February 2011. I have never been able to discover how they were electrocuted, other than the grass was wet and those affected had metal shoes on. After digging up the ground, they removed an old cable that was no longer connected to a power source, other than that, no answer except electrocution which handlers felt, with no adverse affects, but horses are seemingly susceptible to. I have been unable to find any decisive autopsy report.
These links to jog your memory:
With all that in mind, the following link isn’t recent and is dated three months earlier on the 8th November 2010 concerning Solar Storms and the affects on the earths magnetic field.
“…When a big storm is underway, waves of ionization ripple through Earth’s upper atmosphere, ELECTRIC CURRENTS FLOW THROUGH THE TOPSOIL, and the whole planet's magnetic field begins to shake…”
It makes me wonder if this could be responsible for killing those horses as well as numerous other sudden deaths of wildlife which are still occurring it seems.
Hardawg,that's a great question and one many of us have been asking it for a long time. I think its important to remember that God promised us deliverance from His wrath....not the wrath, cruelty, persecution, etc of our fellow man.
I don't think anyone truly knows for sure.
Most of us never dreamed we would be here this long. But we are. Since we are, we know He has a plan for us up until the time He sends His Son to fetch His bride, us.
Since we're still here this late into the season, the Caver house hold is preparing as best we can to be here through some potentially very difficult times....again, brought on by man, not God.
Of course, we can look at Ezekiel and be sure we will be gone by the end of that war. Many of us think we're gone no later than the middle of it, but by the end for sure.
Just he view from the Caver knothole to the world.
Whoops...."he" should be "the".
Where's DrNo and the spelling/typo police?
I absolutely do recall that weird situation with the horses -- what you posted does indeed look like a plausible explanation (of course it still doesn't explain all of these other mysterious animal deaths that have been occurring around the world. Very interesting.
My motto is to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. I do believe that the reference in Matt 24 regarding the days of Noah IS a rapture reference, so based on that, I can't see the world-wide situation being absolutely terrible - because at such point we'd no longer be in the "days of Noah" in the context that is given (eating, drinking, giving in to marriage - ie, life as normal)....But Caver makes a good point - we know with certainty that we won't face God's wrath (aka the Tribulation) but we may face other hardships first.
Geared - I think that's quite possible. That's the whole problem - no one trusts the gov't right now, so the list of things that they could be up to is lengthy. And none of them are benevolent. I think its probably a combination of things - one of which is their showing their "power". In some respects its simply a power play. It could also be a test of things to come - when we see martial law ushered in.
I know one thing. It isn't good.
Caver i share ur view....i hope to be gone by psalm 83 but i don't see us being here after ezekiel 38&39. I also agree with u bracing up for rough times. many in the church don't have the means to stock up or save hence the question. i can understanding why someone would think christ forgot about his bride
Hardawg, please don't look at it this way. It may well be that this is the way Jesus Christ reinforces your faith.
We have Christians living on both sides of us that haven't prepared...just don't see the need and to some extend probably can't as we could at the time. Do you think for one minute we could sit here with our well and stores and not share? Nope. They will get food and water too....and what will it do to their faith? Increase it maybe.
No, brother, I suspect the Lord has prepared the ones He needed to prepare to get His children through. It may not be stake....
Just my thoughts. An while I'm on it....what bet each of them don't have something we need but didn't feel convicted to "lay in" as supplies for "that day".
Wow!!!! I'm so excited!! Praise God!! 23 days after my daughter gets out of jail and she now have temporary custody of her child and is going home right now from the day care center. I don't have much time to go into detail but a series events have happened. God truly is amazing!! Thanks for your prayers, and we still have a battle to fight with the court and everthing else. Pray we will find an attorney who can help pro-bono please. Thank you all so very much!! God bless you all.
Jec, that is fantastic news and the Lord has supplied your needs. :-)
Caver....i don't look at it "that way" I'm just saying i can to some extent understand(tho not agree) those who do.
Jec our prayers our with you
One more thing caver when u share with those who haven't layed in for whatever reason the Lord will increasingly bless you.
Understand Hartdawg, understand completely. He works in wondrous ways, don't He. He does let you know whey He approves and you're being obedient.
Ok. Prayer request time. This is apparently the year of the gallbladder. My wife is having similar symptoms to what I was having, and her Dr thinks it might be her gallbladder. She is having a sonogram on it tomorrow, and we're both pretty sure it's gonna have to come out. I wonder if the surgeon who took mine out would do hers for a half-price special or maybe buy one surgery get the second one free. I can dream can't I? Well, God worked out the details of my surgery, so we're trusting He'll do the same with my wifes. Thanks all.
Guys, about the isaiah 17/ Ezekiel 38-39 battles: since Israel "wins" the Isaiah 17 battle, and that is against countries nearby, then Israel would be living in safety because they beat their immediate threats, right? So then they are "safe" and probably living without fear of immediate danger. Then the "outer ring" of nations come in because Israel isn't expecting it and then God decimates the army of gog/Magog. Do I understand this correctly? If not, can you please correct me?
Seth, I'll pray for your wife.
An update on my friend's kidney. They're gonna do some surgery on it, but it won't be invasive. They'll just take a tube and suck out the infectious cells. No transplant or dialysis needed (yet).
Dylan, that's pretty much it. Also to note the word actually more closely resembles "securely" rather than "safely", Its kind of subtle but could make a difference. Even now one could argue that they are living "securely" based on their military dominance in the region. Even moreso after Isa 17 (although they will have taken a hit, presumably by Syrian missiles)
I agree with you. It's better to be prepared...we don't know much we will have to endure. But yet again what Scott said about being in the days of Noah? Gary
Dylan, as scott said you got it correct. most pretrib scholars i know about believe the rapture seperates Isaiah 17/psalm 83 from ezekiel 38&39 but i think the rapture may precede psalm 83. Noone knows for sure.
Seth keep us posted
Hartdawg, my opinion is Christians the world over already suffer great persecution. I don't think however it is going to get that much worse in America because I don't see us being here all that much longer. :)
Assad is going to do something really dumb IMO really soon as time for that despot is running out.
If you look at every country that has toppled bad dictators recently every last one has replaced a bad guy that was cool to Israel with Muslim brotherhood/sharia law folks that abhor Israel. In other words in every case it has gone from bad to worse for the Jewish nation.
It looks like the perfect storm for Isaiah 17/Psalm 83 is lining up.
We should use our remaining borrowed time to lift up the unsaved and Israel as really bad times are a comin and we won't be here to pray for them.
WV- Yes, Christians have been/are/will be persecuted. In America, we have been isolated from the persecution of man and are promised to be protected from the wrath of God. Our fellow Christians in Ivory Coast who were crucified by the Islamist leaders have see persecution on a level we can't imagine. We need to be clear in separating man's persecution from God's wrath when talking about end times. Christians have seen persecution for 2000 years, but Wrath is reserved for the lost.
Well, I was NOT around for a few days....but I'm BACK now....

There is still a NEED to be

THAT is WHEN Assad, ect will be
a real problem.
But not yet.
This is a classic case of slowly cooking the frog before it knows whats happening. Still the gall of the Government to actually hold these tests is an insult (i think) to the average American's intelligence. Tennessee may be a test case for America but long term, America may be a test case for the world.
America is soon to become a dictatorship and it's only a matter of time before "she" enforces her new policies on the world.
The gradual warming up to and de-sensitizing of the American public to the Marxist(One World Goverment)agenda is giving the American people a new way of thinking, and change of life style to embrace once the practice drills are finnished, and all is finally enforced.
We shouldn't be suprised at the change away from the constitution to dictatorship, after all we are dealing with sinful human nature which is enmity against God and craves the control and destruction of it's fellow humans. Sinful human nature has been saying for years, "we dont want you God in our live's, just leave us alone to rule on our own". Well God is about to grant the world that request. David.
Hi Brother Dylan
Just to preface, often times Ezekiel 38:11 is confused with 1 Thessalonians 5:3. What is picked up, is the “peace and safety” and “sudden destruction”. Paul is not speaking of Ezekiel 38 when he makes this statement. Having said that, there is nothing in Ezekiel 38 that says that Israel will be “surprised”, in fact terrifyingly, they will see these hords of invaders coming, and be helpless to do anything, just as God wants it to be. Only He, and He alone will take on the Gog invaders, and it will all be to His Glory, not any works of His People- or to mans credit in any way.
Isaiah 17 begins with Israel winning- Damascus, Jordan, the West Bank, but then something catastrophic happens, and by the end, God steps in to save them from being completed decimated.
Israel will by no means “win” against the surrounding enemy nations in the Isaiah 17 war. Gods Word tells us that they will barely survive, . God orchestrates this entire war, for His Purposes, and that is to bring Israel to there knees, “ and there shall be desolation”, and set the stage for the quickly coming Ezekiel invasion that He also orchestrates. He tells us why He allows this to happen to them –“Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength”
Yes, by the end of the Isaiah 17 war, God Himself has stepped in to prevent His People from completely being wiped out. He has indeed destroyed the enemy nations surrounding Israel, but again, they barely survive- there is no “victory” and they are extremely weak. Israel has fought a multiple fronted war alone, with no means of
re-supplying, horrendous death -damage, and no allies to be seen.
In Ezekiel 38:11, Gods Word says that Israel is "at rest", followed by a comma, "that dwell safely".
11.And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
God describes His People as being "at rest" followed by the enhancement of "dwell safely". Why "at rest"? At "rest" from what? They will be recovering from the horrendous Isaiah 17 war, which leaves them helpless, severely wounded, and vulnerable to the Ezekiel 38 invasion just as God wants them to be. They will have God, and God only to save them.
God has brought them to the end of themselves, desolated, so that when the quickly following Ezekiel 38 comes, they have Him and only Him to turn to. God fully returns to His People after thousands of years that He “hid His Face” from them, and He restores His Covenant with them. He “pours out His Spirit” upon them, and we the Church are gone…
Hi Brother WV :)
“If you look at every country that has toppled bad dictators recently every last one has replaced a bad guy that was cool to Israel with Muslim brotherhood/sharia law folks that abhor Israel. In other words in every case it has gone from bad to worse for the Jewish nation.”
Absolutely agree! It is astounding to witness! We are witnessing God Himself hardening these nations! This is the Hand of God at work right before our eyes!
Just as He did thousands of years ago, when He hardened the heart of Pharaoh, He is hardening these nations against Israel- His People. It is as if He is bringing forth to the surface, the purest of evil, allowing them to gather, so that He can destroy them. This is Spiritual warfare in the highest form!WOW!
Days of Noah - I have been pondering what the "days of Noah" (Matt 24:37-39) actually looked like. In Gen. 6:5, "The LORD saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. " In Gen. 6:11-12, "Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on the earth had corrupted their ways." Whereas, "Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time and he walked with God." (v9)
It seems like to me that all/most nations are being pushed or edged into violence these days. I'm thinking of Islamic rulers rising in nations, economic upheaval in several eurpean counties, ows in the us, the use of haarp against our own people and the striving for nuclear power in aggressive nations. The earth seems to be nearly set for the "days of Noah" description.
Thank you, Jesus, for Your word which tells us what is to come, for Your peace that passes all understanding, and for Your Holy Spirit given to each of us as Your Counselor. We ask for wisdom and discernment and for a closer walk with thee. Amen!
I was just outside and God just reminded me to keep my eyes fixed on Him. The marvels of His mighty Hand are all around and He is with us. All praise and glory to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! -- Just thought I would share this as an encouragement, especially after my prior posting.
I'd like to offer another angle to Gog- Magog. As you know, Tim LaHaye and Joel Rosenberg in their end-time novels both place it before the Rapture; and here is Lahaye's reasoning:" The implements of war left behind by the decimayed armies also will be gathered up, not to be reused but to be burned. So many weapons will be recovered that to burn them all will take 7 years. This 7 year period prophesied for the burning of Russian weapons is the reason why in the Left Behind series we placed Russia's attack on Israel some three and a half years before the beginning of the Tribulation. Scripture teaches that in the second half of the 7 year tribulation, Israel will be once more forced out of her homeland; therefore, if she is to spend 7 years burning these weapons, the Russian invasion must take place at least three and a half years before that time". To their credit however, neither LaHaye or Rosenberg is dogmatic about this; and they both acknowledge that you can make strong arguments both ways. I realize that sme of you might have different views on this; but I just thought I'd throw it out there. In the end though God has the whole thing figured out; and we'll be gone before the Tribulation begins whether it;s before or after Gog-Magog.
Hi Sister Sharon, :)
I agree completely :) Matthew 24 we know has a duel purpose. Jesus is clearly speaking to the Jewish Believers of the Trib. We as the Church, are observers from the peanut gallery so as to speak. It also applies to us, for us to know the Season. Just some thoughts from this tired noggin :)
37.But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38.For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39.And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Jesus is referring to the behavior, the sin, during“days of Noah”in the past, and in conjunction, Jesus clearly is referring to His Second coming at the end of the Trib.
What were the days of Noah? There was unspeakable evil as God tells us, so much so that He decided to wipe them all out with a flood! They died in their sin. What Jesus is speaking of, is that in the days of Noah, there was condition of the “world”. Noah was a Believer and walked with God. The rest of the world was immersed in evil sin, partying, marrying etc. The “world” was blind to there sin just as they are today. Marriage, partying etc. always goes on blindly even surrounded by horrendous events.
2. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3.And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4.There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
5.And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Jesus was referring to very, very evil times. The people of Noahs day, were Spiritually blind to all of there evil. Jesus then says in the second portion of His statement that He is speaking of His Second Coming. This confirms that when Jesus is referencing the “days of Noah”, He is not saying He will be returning at a time when everything is great, prosperous etc. How many times have we witnessed celebrations occurring in the midst of evil events. Jesus is saying He will return in the midst of extreme evil which the second half of the Trib will no doubt be.
At the same time, Jesus is saying to the Church, we are as observers, the same conditions of the Noah, will be present when He Comes for His Bride. We can see the evil running rampant in the days we are living in, and the “world” reacts the same as in Noahs day. They are Spiritually blind, they call good evil, and evil good.
“But as the days of Noah were”
For the Jewish Believers Jesus was speaking to – they will see and know the evil that surrounds them as they are in the Trib. They know what the “ days of Noah” means.
For the Church as observers, we can see the same evil Jesus refers to, running rampant in the days we are living in.
In Verse 38 & 39 of Matthew 24, Jesus expands on His Noah statement. He tells us that the world in their sin, carried on mockingly, marrying, partying in a completely evil environment. God Himself was beyond disgusted as He describes it to us telling us the “wickedness” was great, and “every imagination of the thoughts” was only evil.
5.And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Jesus finishes His statement, by telling us that the “world” was so immersed in their sin, they didn’t even pay attention to the coming flood that swept them away. As He says “So shall the Coming of the Son of man be”.
When Jesus returns in His Second Coming at the end of the Trib, those unbelievers in their sin, will face swift Judgment, death, as did the unbelievers that were swept away quickly by the flood.
When Jesus comes for the Church, His Bride, those left behind who hold firm in their sin and rejection of Him, will face Gods Judgments upon this Earth during the Trib. Just as His Judgment came upon those in the flood.
Jesus is our Ark, and I would invite anyone out there reading this who does not have a personal relationship with Him, to invite Him into your heart, accept Him as your Savior, He welcomes you just as you are. He paid the price on a cross, for your Salvation, out of His love for you. He keeps the door of His Ark, His Heart, and His arms lovingly open for you…all are welcome and you will know His Peace, His JOY,and His Love forever!
Hi Dutch :)
Yes indeed, God will instruct in the clean up after the Ezekiel battle, to have His People burn the enemies weapons for seven years.
9.And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
I have to respectfully disagree though, with their reasoning for placing Ezekiel 38-39 3 ½ years before the start of the Trib. .
"Scripture teaches that in the second half of the 7 year tribulation, Israel will be once more forced out of her homeland; therefore, if she is to spend 7 years burning these weapons, the Russian invasion must take place at least three and a half years before that time".
“ Scripture teaches that in the second half of the 7 year tribulation, Israel will be once more forced out of her homeland; “
“Israel” is not forced out of their homeland at mid-Trib. , it is the Believing Jewish People that flee, not the entire population of Israel. Zola Levitt once pointed out, that was amazing to me at the time, is something we don’t often think of. After the Ezekiel 38-39, with Almighty God revealing Himself to them, even then, not all Jewish People in Israel will Believe. Just as was with Jesus, they saw His Miracles, and still didn’t believe.
There will be Jewish People helping the AC for example. The AC will reveal himself in the Temple at the Mid-Trib. Who will comprise of his armies? He is not in Jerusalem by himself. The Israeli population is not comprised of only Jewish People. There is a huge amount of non-Jewish people such as Arab Israelis for example. There will be plenty of people left in Israel to continue burning the weapons, after the Believing Jewish People flee.
Most importantly, God fully restores His Covenant with His People in Ezekiel 38-39. That is the whole reason He orchestrates this war. He is fully back with them, and the Church is gone as the two are mutually exclusive to Him. The Church cannot remain for an additional 3 ½ years after the end of the Ezekiel 38 war, as God as come back to His People.
There are likely pro bono resources through the state and/or local bar associations in your state. That may be a good place to start and you can probably find someone there to point you in the right direction.
Seth, praying for your wife.
Dear Mrs. C.,
What you have written to Dutch is precisely what I believe.
I am not an anti semite. I believe God's word. None of us are perfect. All nations sin . Jerusalem is a cup of reeling for the nations but they are not perfect amidst a world of imperfection. They too make mistakes.
When I suggested that my Saintly friends request to pray for the spiritual peace of Jerusalem too, this is what I meant.Let's pray that more will believe that they can escape these awful coming days.I do NOT want to revisit all the stuff you put in your other note. Please let us move forward in our work and praying in these days.
