I've had several conversations about these evolving events - and at this point, it isn't even worth "worrying" about from the Christian community (particularly prophecy watchers, who frankly, are probably the only part of the church watching this anyway) - at this point Obama/Kerry have crossed God's "red line" and now we can rest assured that God has this one completely in control.

That says that Netanyahu is deeply concerned that Obama “will seek to have a resolution enshrining those parameters adopted by the UN Security Council” before the end of his term on January 20th…
