MidEast Meltdown.

In the OT [Old Testament] of the Bible, it seems that God always made a point of placing Israel against impossible odds with her enemies-- who were usually much larger in strength/ number, with better. more terrifying weapons, horses and chariots. Jehovah even told the Israelite nation NOT to 'multiply their horses', so that they would have to rely on Him instead of their own means.

Jesus had no qualms about producing the finest wine at the Cana wedding feast--His first miracle, or multiplying fish and barley bread to feed the vast crowd sitting before Him as He preached either.

I can't help but think that God has the same thing in mind when He comes to modern Israel's aid in the soon coming war with most of her Islamic neighbors that Christian and worldly news people are expecting. I don't presume to know all about Israel's might,machines, Army/ Military strength -- but the opposition seems quite formidable right now, including obama's USA! I am sure that most of will have to admit that it will certainly take one of God's miracles to save His chosen people. As the insightful article demonstrates below-- the time is just about ripe for things to start 'warming up' in the Middle East, as Iran may already have nukes ready sooner than some people think. Go figure-- if WE were in the Jew's shoes, what would we do?? And remember, Israel has a great game plan with it's past generals dong major damage thousands of years ago--when they were good with the Lord... Frankly, I am not too worried about Israel, because they have a covenant/ guarantee with Almighty God, right? But then.. how many unbelievers know about The only problem I see, is that those who war against Israel will draw fire from God, and that would include obama's USA too.

We still don't know if WE Christians will witness this upcoming [1st] war of Israel and it's enemies perhaps sometime this year -- or will we be raptured. If YOU knew that you would be getting ready for a big fight with many bad guys soon, would you value a so-called ally/ 'friend' to stand on the side lines until the very last minute before committing to your aid/ defense?? If so-called friends were that cowardly or indifferent so as to limp upon two opinions and straddle the fence to see what side is more lucrative or attractive --- personally, I would tell them to kiss off and take a flying leap!! Time to take our stands for God NOW! Are we also going to wait until the very last day to READ GOD'S BOOK--THE BIBLE?? Ha! When you have "skin in the game" you really want to get all your 'ducks in a row' and have the right plan, IMHO. Our plan has to be God's Plan-- because that's the only game in town... so to speak. Or are we that foolish that we want to take sides and roll the dice on mere human plans? As for me--eternity is too important a reward-- [or punishment] to take a blind, stupid chance.

Personally, I count every minute of time reading, studying, applying God's Word, the Bible, and trying my best to help and encourage my brothers and sisters in the Faith, a blessing and precious nugget stored up in heaven. I don't believe that I will be a prince in heaven -- but just getting there intact will be the best thing that ever happened to me! WE can all have that blessed assurance IF we know and do the correct thing right now. In my opinion, any 'tool/ book' that helps me understand, learn better and do the will of my Lord is worth tons of gold, and that includes all the books I have purchased. But YOU be the judge. Take care, friends.


Mideast Matters May Meltdown in 2010!

By Bill Salus. Major Mideast wars are coming according to the Bible prophecies in Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38-39. It would be prudent for people to prepare now, in 2010, for their soon and sequential arrivals.It is public knowledge that as of December 2009 Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, and Hamas became allied together by bonafide war pacts against Israel. Iran is a member of Ezekiel 38-39
