It's a well known fact that present day Military academies study ancient history, warfare and battles from their textbooks to prepare for today's war/ battle strategy. 'Nothing is new under the sun,' says wise old King Solomon. But the goofy Generals and world leaders ALWAYS forget the "God Factor." How many times did the God of the Jews, Jehovah, lead the enemies into a trap, and also make the battle 'lop-sided' like a 'David/ Goliath' fight and then give the victory to the Israelites instead of the much larger 'other side' that "seemed" to have the early advantage of numbers, better weapons, etc ?? It is important to note that God wants and deserves the Glory and Praise for each Victory! One of the few things that I have going for me is my relative humility-- and Salvation through Jesus' ransom blood sacrifice on the cross. It always ends up that way and not just coincidentally, that when I go against God's will-- something evil happens to me-- but when I fly right and obey His Word, things run more smoothly.
If things don't work out in the near future concerning our prognostications of Israel's near future war with her violent, destructive neighbors this Summer... it will be because WE ALL HAVE IT WRONG -- NOT GOD'S WORD.
I have also thought that all my preaching, teaching, talk, blogging, sharing of the Gospel and the "new" DEFINED KJV Bibles I mailed, delivered, and made known, those people I HAVE TOUCHED may choose NOT to join the fold of Christ, just may have a lot to chew on in the Great Tribulation. After all, I can only do so much before the Rapture. In that case, God may be using me primarily as a "planter of seeds."
Sharon stayed home again from church, but the weather report said that today would be a dangerously high unhealthy day-- humid and very hot-- for those with health problems and COPD. I had a hard time of it, myself and the old knees were hurting big time too. I also got too much sunshine/ burn yesterday and will wear more eye protection, a hat and shades from now on. Half of the people were missing from church anyway, most likely on vacation-- and that's only good and right too. Sharon and I have not had a vacation in years!
But I think that we live high on the hog in our rural area away from the high crime cities that we only go for shopping.
As far as I can see, EVERYTHING in the world is coming along/ alive exactly like the Bible promised, and these "signs" and wonders actually STRENGTHEN true Believers/ Christians! We just need to stay alert, and concentrate on our heavenly prize, and not be side tracked or fooled by all the glitter and vice of Satan and his earthly agents. IMHO [in my humble opinion] all the short lived politics of this dying old satanic system of things isn't worth getting upset or worried about! It's just like everything else that can STEAL OUR PRECIOUS TIME IN THESE LAST DAYS! The apostle Paul described it all as a dung heap.... sorry folks. Heaven is my Home. We ought to have horse blinders on so as not to get distracted by the "lion that roars" [Satan] so loud so as to confuse all who have not the Holy Spirit to guild and strengthen them. Our last breath of air on earth is our first in heaven. Sleep and ponder on that as you rest tonight.

I am very disappointed that the writer picked a 'modern bible version' that omitted God's true, personal name, JEHOVAH, the God most used in the OT [Old Testament]... the God of the Israelites. The most accurate, reliable and true, KJV Bible uses the correct name of God in Psalm 83.
