U.S. vs Israel, U.S. vs Allies, U.S. vs U.S.

The first three articles tell the story as the U.S. becomes more and more isolated:

On Wednesday, the Jerusalem Municipality announced it is shelving plans to build 1,500 apartments in the Har Homa neighborhood. Officials gave no explanation for its sudden move. But none was needed.

Obviously the construction of apartments for Jews in Jerusalem was blocked in the hopes of appeasing US President Barack Obama.

But is there any reason to believe he can be appeased? Today the White House is issuing condemnations of Israel faster than the UN.

To determine how to handle what is happening, we need to understand the nature of what is happening.

First we need to understand that the administration’s hostility has little to do with Israel’s actions.

As Max Boot explained Wednesday in The Wall Street Journal, the administration’s animosity toward Israel is a function of Obama’s twin strategic aims, both evident since he entered office: realigning US policy in the Middle East toward Iran and away from its traditional allies Israel and the Sunni Arab states, and ending the US’s strategic alliance with Israel.

Over the past six years we have seen how Obama has consistently, but gradually, taken steps to advance these two goals. Toward Iran, he has demonstrated an unflappable determination to accommodate the terrorism supporting, nuclear proliferating, human rights repressing and empire building mullahs.

Beginning last November, as the deadline for nuclear talks between the US and its partners and Tehran approached, Obama’s attempts to accommodate Tehran escalated steeply.

Obama has thrown caution to the winds in a last-ditch effort to convince Iranian dictator Ali Khamenei to sign a deal with him. Last month the administration published a top secret report on Israel’s nuclear installations. Last week, Obama’s director of national intelligence James Clapper published an annual terrorism threat assessment that failed to mention either Iran or Hezbollah as threats.

In the regional context, the administration has had nothing to say in the face of Iran’s takeover of the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Aden this week. With its Houthi-proxy now in charge of the strategic waterway, and with its own control over the Straits of Hormuz, Iran is poised to exercise naval control over the two choke points of access to Arab oil.

As Obama sees it, Netanyahu threatens his nuclear diplomacy with Iran because he has a unique ability to communicate his concerns about the deal to US lawmakers and the American people, and mobilize them to join him in opposing Obama’s actions. The letters sent by 47 senators to the Iranian regime explaining the constitutional limitations on presidential power to conclude treaties without Senate approval, like the letter to Obama from 367 House members expressing grave and urgent concerns about the substance of the deal he seeks to conclude, are evidence of Netanyahu’s success.
The second reason Obama has gone to war against Israel is because he views the results of last week’s election as an opportunity to market his anti-Israel and pro-Iranian positions to the American public.
If Netanyahu can convince Americans to oppose Obama on Iran, Obama believes that by accusing Netanyahu of destroying chances for peace and calling him a racist, Obama will be able to win sufficient public support for his anti-Israel policies to intimidate pro-Israel Democratic lawmakers into accepting his pro-Iranian policies.

To this end, Obama has announced that the threat that he will abandon Israel at the UN has now become a certainty. There is no peace process, Obama says, because Netanyahu had the temerity to point out that there is no way for Israel to risk the transformation of Judea and Samaria into a new terror base. As a consequence, he has all but made it official that he is abandoning the peace process and joining the anti-Israel bandwagon at the UN.

Obama has reached a point in his presidency where he is prepared to give full expression to his plan to end the US’s strategic alliance with Israel.
He thinks that doing so is both an end to itself and a means of succeeding in his bid to achieve a rapprochement with Iran.
Given this dismal reality, Israel needs to develop ways to minimize the damage Obama can cause.
Now, with Obama himself declaring the peace process dead and replacing it with a policy of pure hostility toward Israel, Israel has nothing to gain from upholding a policy that blames it for the absence of peace.

Never before has Israel had to deal with such an openly hostile US administration. Indeed, until 2009, the very notion that a day would come when an American president would prefer an alliance with Khamenei’s Iran to its traditional alliances with Israel and the Sunni Arab states was never even considered. But here we are.

Just how badly has Barack Obama and his administration damaged relations with our allies in the Middle East? NBC’s Richard Engel reports that the Sunni nations in the region have begun to fear that the Obama administration leaks intel to Iran as part of its efforts at rapprochement with the mullahs, which is why the US got blindsided by the Saudi-led coalition’s operations in Yemen. The White House’s “incoherence” in policy, Engel reports, has most of them losing confidence in American leadership, according to Engel’s contacts (via Free Beacon):

ENGEL (1:58): I know several people in the US military who were taken by surprise by this [action in Yemen]. Senior officials who would have been expected to know that there was going to be an operation in Yemen, they didn’t. They were finding out about it almost in real time.
And they believe, and some US members of Congress believe, that the reason Saudi Arabia and other states didn’t tell the US that it was going to launch this war against Shi’ite backed, or Iranian-backed rebels in Yemen, is because Saudi Arabia and other countries simply don’t trust the United States anymore, don’t trust this administration — think the administration is working to befriend Iran to try and make a deal in Switzerland, and therefore didn’t think that the intelligence frankly would be secure.
I think that is a situation that is quite troubling for US foreign policy, where traditional allies — like Saudi Arabia, like Egypt, like the United Arab Emirates — don’t know if the US is reliable at this stage to hold onto this information when it comes to Iran.

More importantly, Engel’s report advances this to an allegation of betrayal, not just incompetence. Clearly, Saudi Arabia has little confidence left in the Obama administration; that much is evident from their actions to cut the US out of the loop on this coalition. Engel’s report strongly suggests that it’s not just incompetence that has the Saudis and other US allies rattled, but a suspicion that they’re being purposefully sold out by Obama to get a deal with Iran that will unleash their ambitions to dominate the region.

It has become abundantly clear that Obama wants a deal for the sake of claiming a foreign policy achievement, no matter what the cost, and no matter what it does to our allies, especially Israel. The situation is reminiscent of another confrontation between Western powers and an extremist dictatorship that professed its own destiny to rule the world, and where the dictator even wrote out his plans for world domination and practically begged everyone to read them.
In both cases, Western leaders told themselves that the extremist rhetoric was only intended for domestic consumption. Also in both cases, they treated with contempt their allies whose very existence was threatened by the new hegemon, who kept breaking international agreements and stalling negotiations until the West appeased them by betraying those same allies — even locking their democratic allies out of the negotiations.
At least Neville Chamberlain learned his lesson after Munich, albeit far too late for the Czechoslovakians, Eastern Europe, and millions of Jews. Obama and Kerry seem determined to repeat those same mistakes. That can be described many ways, but smart power isn’t one of them.

Efforts by the Obama administration to stem criticism of its diplomacy with Iran have included threats to nations involved in the talks, including U.S. allies, according to Western sources familiar with White House efforts to quell fears it will permit Iran to retain aspects of its nuclear weapons program.

A series of conversations between top American and French officials, includingbetween President Obama and French President Francois Hollande, have seen Americans engage in behavior described as bullying by sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

The disagreement over France’s cautious position in regard to Iran threatens to erode U.S. relations with Paris, sources said.

Tension between Washington and Paris comes amid frustration by other U.S. allies, such as Saudi Arabia and Israel. The White House responded to this criticism by engaging in public campaigns analysts worry will endanger American interests.

Western policy analysts who spoke to the Free Beacon, including some with close ties to the French political establishment, were dismayed over what they saw as the White House’s willingness to sacrifice its relationship with Paris as talks with Iran reach their final stages.

A recent phone call between Obama and Hollande was reported as tense as the leaders disagreedover the White House’s accommodation of Iranian red lines.

Benjamin Haddad, who has advised senior French political figures on foreign policy issues, said leaders in Paris have not been shy about highlighting disagreements they have with the White House.
“Fance, like other European countries, has negotiated for more than 10 years and endured most of the sanctions’ burden,” said Haddad, a research fellow at the Hudson Institute.
“The French want a deal, but they see no rush and repeat that Iranians need a deal more than we do, and that we shouldn’t fix artificial deadlines that put more pressure on us than Iran.”
One source in Europe close to the ongoing diplomacy said the United States has begun to adopt a “harsh” stance toward its allies in Paris.

“There have been very harsh expressions of displeasure by the Americans toward French officials for raising substantive concerns about key elements of what the White House and State Department negotiators are willing to concede to Iran,” said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “That is because the clarifications expose just how weak the Americans’ deal is shaping up to be.”

Another Western source familiar with the talks said the White House is sacrificing longstanding alliances to cement a contentious deal with Iran before Obama’s term in office ends.

The establishment media’s reaction to the upcoming Jade Helm military exercise has characterized concerns about the drill as being founded in nothing more than “right-wing paranoia,” but the exhaustive history of how the federal government and the U.S. Army have made preparations for martial law in America is beyond denial.

Jade Helm, a “realistic” military training exercise which will involve the Green Berets, Navy Seals, and the 82nd Airborne Division, is set to take place from July 15-Sepember 15 and will cover at least nine U.S. states.

As we reported yesterday, the exercise will involve soldiers operating “undetected amongst civilian populations,” to see if they can infiltrate without being noticed.

The drill stoked concerns after Texas and Utah were labeled “hostile” territory in documents related to the exercise. However, when Infowars drew attention to the issue, numerous mainstream news outlets reacted by regurgitating Army talking points about how the drill was solely focused on preparing U.S. troops for overseas missions. Those same outlets also demonized anyone who questioned that narrative as engaging in alarmism and paranoia.

The history of the federal government and the U.S. military’s preparations for martial law in America is manifestly provable. That is not to say that a military takeover is imminent, but to dismiss the militarization of law enforcement and verifiable plans for using troops to deal with domestic unrest as “alarmist” or mere “conspiracy theory” is completely erroneous.

Despite assurances by the Army that Jade Helm is to prepare troops for overseas missions, Army documents in the past have made clear that plans for martial law are in place for within the Continental United States (CONUS).
- A leaked 2012 US Army Military Police training manual, entitled “Civil Disturbance Operations,” described how soldiers would be ordered to confiscate firearms and kill American “dissidents.” The manual also revealed that prisoners would be detained in temporary internment camps and “re-educated” to gain a new appreciation of “U.S. policies,” in accordance with U.S. Army FM 3-19.40 Internment/Resettlement Operations.
As we exhaustively documented, the training manual explicitly states in numerous places that these programs are for both overseas and domestically “within the United States or U.S. territories during civil support operations”.
- In 2009 it was revealed how the National Guard posted a number of job listings looking for “Internment/Resettlement Specialists” to work in “civilian internee camps” within the United States.
- Jade Helm has also drawn comparisons to a 2012 scenario outlined by retired Army colonel Kevin Benson, in which the U.S. Military is used to crush an insurgent rebellion overseen by Tea Party militia members who take over the city of Darlington, South Carolina.
Preparations for using troops to deal with mass civil unrest on U.S. soil, in addition to interning American citizens, have been in the works for decades.
- In the late 1990′s Alex Jones attended numerous urban warfare training drills where U.S. troops were trained to raid, arrest and imprison U.S. citizens in detention camps as well as taking over public buildings and running checkpoints. During role playing exercises, actors playing prisoners would scream “I’m an American citizen, I have rights” as they were being dragged away by troops.

An Arab summit expected to back a Saudi-led offensive against Yemeni rebels and approve a joint military force began in the Egyptian resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh on Saturday.

Yemen President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi was present along with King Salman of Saudi Arabia and other Gulf Arab leaders. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is also scheduled to address the summit.

Saudi-led coalition warplanes bombed rebel camps in Yemen for a third day straight on Saturday, as US President Barack Obama said the United States shared a “collective goal” with its regional ally to see stability in the war-torn state.

A months-long rebellion by Shiite fighters in Yemen has escalated into a regional conflict that threatens to tear apart the impoverished state at the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula.

Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia has vowed to do “whatever it takes” to prevent the fall of embattled President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, accusing Shiite Iran of “aggression” and of backing the Houthi rebels’ power grab.
Amid the air raids and scattered fighting, a call for a ceasefire was issued by former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, suspected of being allied with the rebels.

Arab warplanes pounded Iranian-backed rebels in Yemen for a third night while President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi held summit talks in Egypt Saturday with regional allies seeking to prevent his overthrow.

The deeply tribal and impoverished Arabian Peninsula state, on the front line of the US battle against Al-Qaeda, is the scene of the latest emerging proxy struggle between Middle East powers.

An Arab coalition, led by Saudi Arabia and other Sunni-ruled Gulf monarchies, is battling to avoid having a pro-Iran regime on its doorstep, as Shiite Houthi rebels tighten the noose around Hadi’s southern stronghold.

Heavy strikes shook the rebel-held capital Sanaa for a third consecutive night until dawn on Saturday, residents said.

“It was an intense night of bombing and the windows shook,” said a foreigner working for an international aid organisation in Sanaa.

“People want to leave but there are no flights out of Yemen,” she said.

 With the Obama administration holding out for a nuclear deal with Iran, Saudi-led air strikes by 10 coalition members against Iranian-backed al-Houthi targets in neighboring Yemen have won broad U.S. congressional backing as Arab leaders move closer to creating a joint Arab military force.

The Saudis want to intervene more aggressively against ISIS jihadist fighters and the spread of Iranian influence in the region.

Creation of a joint force – which has been discussed in recent years but never implemented – comes as the Saudis and close ally Egypt see the United States moving toward a nuclear deal with Iran.

The imminent deal has caused Riyadh to conclude it can no longer rely on U.S. security guarantees and must take the security initiative.

Broad bipartisan congressional backing of the Saudi initiative comes as prospects rise over Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shiite Iran becoming increasingly engaged in a proxy sectarian conflict, such as in Syria, Bahrain, Iraq and now Yemen.

“I applaud the Saudis for taking this action to protect their homeland and to protect their own neighborhood,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said at a news conference. “If America leads, our allies in the region would be tickled to death and would be happy to join a coalition. But America has to lead.”

Tehran took less than 48 hours for a decision to hit back at the surprise air and naval attack launched by Saudi Arabia, he Gulf and Egypt Thursday, March 26, to contain the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels’ sweep through Yemeni cities...Iran’s top war commander, Al Qods Brigades chief Gen. Qassem Soleimani, landed in the Yemeni capital Sanaa Friday, March 27 to organize a counter-offensive and open Iran’s third direct Middle East warfront after Syria (in support of Bashar Assad) and Iraq (with the US against ISIS).

The Saudi-GCC-Egyptian intervention found the pro-Iranian Houthi rebels at the gates of the big port of Aden, which commands the Straits of Bab el-Mandeb, the vital gateway for oil shipping between the Indian Ocean and Gulf through the Suez Canal and Mediterranean. Certain Yemeni army units have joined the rebels. They are armed with advanced US weapons that were supplied for the war on al Qaeda and now serve the revolt against a Yemeni regime recognized by Washington.

This rebel force had already seized most of Yemen’s cities and stretches of its Red Sea coast.

Soleimani’s arrival in Sanaa signaled Tehran’s determination not to give up an inch of the ground gained by its proxies, while underscoring its demand for dominance as the leading Middle East power, promised by Washington in return for accepting a framework deal on its nuclear program.

In the coming hours, Egyptian and Saudi naval and marine forces are planning landings in Aden, according to their military sources. They will fight to contain the Houthi march across Yemen and prevent the fall of its last major town, after two days of Saudi and Gulf air strikes against rebel positions around Yemen.

Egyptian and Iranian warships maneuvering for control of the Strait of Bab el-Mandeb were reported to have clashed Thursday, the first day of the Sunni intervention in the Yemen conflict.  

From outside the region, Pakistan stands ready to step into the contest, promising Friday “a strong response” to any threat to “Saudi integrity.” This opened the door for the Pakistani army to be drawn into the wars of Arabia against Iran alongside the majority of Arab Sunni nations.

Dear Scott:
I thought I was on a new prophecy site. I had to look twice. The new look is nice...I liked the old one too.

Caver said...

Scott, I like the new format. Broader and easy on the eyes.

This entire thing seems so surreal. You only get a sense of how dire both the ME and the Ukraine area are if you go searching it out....the MSM is determined to keep us focused on trivialities and a one sided surface glance.

Scott said...

Haha Gary - I was wondering how the new look would go over:) -

Caver - Thats what I wanted to do - make it easier to read..I had to get a new computer and went with a smaller version and felt that the old format was too hard to read and I wanted it broader. I like this format a lot. Hope it helps

As far as the news - what strikes me is the fact that so many of the signs which point to the Trib are SO much closer than I thought they would be, on this side of the rapture. I call them "Tribulation Signs"....So so so close now. Sometimes lately it seems like we are just days away, not weeks or months

Unknown said...

Amen... to the new look and just how close we are!!

Scott said...

Thanks D - and we are so so so close...You can almost reach out and grab it its so close.

Sandra said...

Hi Scott,

The new look is very easy to read! Thanks for the effort.

I agree with you Scott, we are probably only days away from being swept away! I hope we all meet soon in our new heavenly homes which I long for more and more each day.


ally said...

my neck has a serious crick from looking up. Enough already....I want out o here!!!!! and yet, as close as it seems....look at all these signs.....He is long suffering and willing that none should perish....
I'm waiting for the big "wake up call". He has got to get people's attention and give em a chance to repent right?
Heck, I'd like to be going uphill around Easter/Passover. Kinda carry on the tradition...But I don't think it's gonna happen like that. A girl can dream, can't she?
Unfortunately, I'm maybe expecting some kind of attack either on Israel or by Israel during this holiday period.....
Can't we all just get along people? Uh yeah, right, like that's gonna happen!!
Thank you Scott!
PS. Still praying for Yeshua to visit Pharoah. In a 4am make him crap his pants in the Lincoln bedroom kinda visit. Actually I would gladly settle for aNebechenezer grass eating moment on the white house, it would have to be at the golf course I guess.

Armor Up! Pressure of the Times
Let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. (1 Thessalonians 5:8)
The Bible is our best commentary on today’s news, and biblical prophecy is unfolding in the headlines. The nation of Israel is once again situated in its ancient land and encircled by enemies. To the West, Hamas dominates the Gaza Strip and wants to destroy Israel. To the South, the Muslim Brotherhood and other jihadist groups in North Africa want to do the same. To the North, Hezbollah has 100,000 missiles aimed at Israel from Lebanon; and further north there’s ferment in Turkey, Ukraine, and Russia. To the east, there’s Iraq, Iran, and ISIS, all dedicated to the violent obliteration of Israel.
First Thessalonians 5 says: “You yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes like a thief… But we are not of the night nor of darkness… Let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.”
The closer we come to the Day of the Lord, the more urgently we need to armor up. Make sure you’re trusting God, proudly wear the breastplate of faith and love and the helmet of hope.

This is no time for spiritual lethargy! Put on the breastplate of faith and love to protect your desires and affections, and the helmet of salvation to protect your thoughts.
David Jeremiah

john said...

Lovin' the new easy to read format!!!

Scott said...

Thanks for those words John, glad you like the format. Ive been itching to change it and have been tinkering with it for a few weeks. I think ill stick with this for a while although im still messing with colors and typeset but as mentioned, readability is key. Great quote above

Ally nice to hear from you:)

George said...

Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

We have so much to look forward to. Casting our crowns at His feet and praising Him for all things.

Also giving you a like on the new format.

Dutch Treat said...

Scott, I logged on to your blog last night before going to bed; and felt like the Apostle Paul on the road to Damascus, blinded by all that white. It is easier to read; and with these Mr. Magoo eyes won't need a magnifying glass to read it. I agree with everyone else that we're so close to going home. Wouldn't it be something if it were to happen on Resurrection Sunday!

Scott said...

Thats funny dutch. In fact i was wondering a out last night because i changed it 6-7 times last night some pretty dramatic and kept "saving" the changes ( so if you would have been looking late last night you would ha e seen all those changes evolving). It"s hard to really see the changes till you save it and look at it (rather than previewing it which never looks the same). So i can imagine somebody having wondered what the heck was going on!!

Scott said...

Sandra. Honestly its hard anymore to talk about the signs in months. Weeks days seem more appropriate. Im wondering about all the hype regarding sept of this year and if true, leading into the tribulation.

Scott said...

George. Thats an awesome passage

Gary said...

Scott, what about September of this year?

Scott said...

Gary - its a whole bunch of things happening in Sept.. First of all, many of us noticed that Sept/oct is when a lot of financial people are expecting financial collapse in the US - that was just a common idea among them. In fact I read yet another article wed or thur where a financial analyst said that.

Then we have the last month of the Shemitah, which Jonathan Cahn has been talking about. in the context of the events of 9/11 and the market crash of 2008 (sept)...Its also when the last of the blood moon tetrad occurs and that week is also a solar eclipse. Its also the year of Jubilee...

Then we have Acts 2/ Joel 2 which states "The sun will turn to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and glorious day of the Lord (DOTL - aka Tribulation) -

So it seems like from a variety of factors, this Sept MAY be pivotal

WVBORN56 said...

Love the comments today! I'm ready to go and cast my vote for Easter too! :)

ally said...

So I see a couple of us are voting for Easter/Passover ;) but I'm guessing it's going to be the the fall. Man what a ride between here and the autumn festivals. This world is going haywire ..... big party at the tree of life soon. And in the words of the Jews at Passover...NEXT YEAR JERUSALEM!
I love you guys so much!!!!!!!! Can't wait to meet you! And can't wait to see my grandma and my dad and my husband again.

Mrs.C said...

Have to respectfully disagree:) Jonathan Cahn exudes false teachings, on so many levels its ridiculous.Scary guy to run from for sure.The U.S. is not Israel period, and never would God pour out His Judgement or Wrath upon the Church, True Believers.We have Gods Word with His Holy Spirit to tell us exactly what is happening right now.
Forgive me, but this blood moon stuff is Tribulation events, and we are not in the Trib. The Shemitah is fascinating timing regarding the fields at rest for the Israeli People, as we know that Isaiah 17 is next.

Scott said...

That must be in reference to Cahn's view of the Shemitah...I'm all about looking at trends. As far as this fall, thats one tiny piece of the puzzle and worth looking at because there is undeniably a trend in this 7 year scenario and/or the uncanny coincidence that we seem to have the downturn in stock and worse crashes in that season. As far as that season in general, (this doesn't come from Cahn) -I do believe there is another trend as far as the tetrad occurring at significant times and concerning the Nation of Israel. (1967, 1948 and the year they were exiled from spain...Those are trends that are hard to ignore. Then we have the various financial people predicting the collapse in that general time frame.

Additionally, the blood moons are seen BEFORE the great and glorious day of the Lord - which is also consistent with the signs that Jesus said we would see in the sky. This is also hard to ignore as it occurs in late Sept

So for someone who studies trends and trending as a profession, I have to say these trends are very very hard to ignore, in aggregate...It may mean nothing, but again, its very hard to ignore

Mrs.C said...

Forgive me Brother, but the Shemitah is applicable only to Gods People, to Israel not any other Gentile nation. As is this idea this false teacher puts out there that Isaiah 9 has anything to do with the U.S.. God has only one nation in the Universe that He chose to have His Covenant, and that is Israel, no one else. It is He that chooses whom to make His Covenant, not man choosing. No matter what dates this guy throws out there, or events that appear to correlate with those dates, the Shemitah is for the nation of Israel only. His false teachings are slick, and intriguing, but riddled with error. Paul already told the whole world to repent, that is nothing new.

Mrs.C said...

30 years ago, those of us studying Prophecy, knew that the U.S. going to cease to be the worlds “super power” at some point, and that obviously included that financially it would collapse. This is nothing new. We prepare, lean on the Lord, and He is Faithful to see us through anything. The U.S is and has been but a vessel used by God, it is not a Covenant nation with Him. This is Gods Plan for these Last Days, and to suggest that “repentance” will change those Plans is bordering blasphemy.

Truly, Jesus is speaking of the time during the Tribulation regarding the events in the sky, which does correlate with His Second Coming Luke 21:25-28 as in Matthew 24:29-30 already well into the Trib.

Scott said...

We aren't just looking at the shemitah - we are looking at the various events that seem to be converging in the fall, in aggregate...Gog-Magog will primarily affect Israel, but will also affect the invading countries. And we watch that. Same with Isaiah 17...If Shemitah is confined to Israel, it will still have world-wide ramifications, just as Gog-MaGog, Isaiah 17, and even the judgments of the Tribulation. We still watch these events unfolding regardless. But again, the Shemitah is just one factor in the midst of many other related events seemingly lining up for the Sept/Oct time-frame

Mrs.C said...

Understand aggregation Brother, but being so very close, satan wants nothing more than to confuse Brothers and Sisters and lead them astray through false tickle your ears teachings (which is also prophetic).
Forgive me if I didnt explain more regarding Shemitah. It is that should the Isaiah 17 war occur during Shemitah, the effects will amplify for Israel, the "desolation" for Israel that God speaks of. We already know that with out question, once the Isaiah 17 war begins, the entire world will be affected greatly...

ally said...

Hmm, all of you guys know the bible better than me, pretty sure of it. But I do know we are grafted into the says so. And I also know from history that except for Israel, we pretty much are the only nation founded in religious liberty to worship God as we choose. And now the "official" govt here is pretty much giving the King of Kings the middle finger, trying to divide Israel, desert Israel, and destroy Israel, and welcoming Islam with glee. Uh things aren't going to bode well for us here in the U.S. I'm afraid, at least add long as we have that attitude.
And the destruction we are wreaking across the globe.....Good have mercy on us!!!
And NONE of that has a lick to do with Rabbi Cahn.
I do know in Genesis, God says he set the moon and Sun in the heavens as a sign so I'm believing that too. Also not having a lick to do with Rabbi Cahn.
I believe from the time I have spent with Rabbi Cahn, he is a man who deeply loves Yaweh and Yeshua and desires to serve them to his best ability. I don't find him to be sensationalist at all. I find him to be a watchman like Scott, desperately screaming to the people.....wake up, watch out.
His unique ability to see things through the lens of Judiasm, well it makes for some interesting theories indeed.
I find it interesting ,that people who should be filled with the love of Christ , and spreading the word with all their might in this extremely short time that is left, have time to nit pick over small things.
They shall know us by our LOVE for one another, right?
The judgemental thing is one of the reasons non believers hate us and think we are fruitcakes!
I know, I have to bite my tongue continually some days and I certainly have not mastered that little member.
I love you all so very much.
And Mrs. C., I expect any questions you may have with brother Cahn, he would be glad to address with you. His schedule is hectic so it might take a little while.
And Scott, over at JD FARAGs you tube page, while he has been not preaching fir a few weeks, Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum has been his fill in. I know you like him so I thought you might find that interesting.
