I had a few bad days with too many things going wrong, and it kind of slowed me down and made me understand that these are indeed, "Critical Times, and hard to deal with..." --- just as Paul wrote to Timothy, with that same warning. BTW, we must remember that such warnings in the KJV Bible many times has a 'two fold' meaning, one 'typical, and another anti-typical.' A "fore shadowing of great things to come in the future." Just like the great tribulation in Jesus' day... but also in OUR present day before and after the Rapture ! So we have a smaller [local] fulfillment, and a larger fulfillment at another future time.... and I hope I am making sense to you good, fine, people. Some folks truly get mixed up about this, and believe false teachings, but hard study of the KJV bible usually clears things up, and mature Christians with the H.S. [Holy Spirit].
I had to go to the Iron Mtn., MI., VAMC again this morning, and mentioned to the dentist and his nurse, that the Pope will be giving a special talk to our U.S. Congress, I believe on Sept. 20th, 2015. I told them that the Pope will be instructing all Catholics to embrace the NWO, and also merge all religions into one... also stuff on 'Climate change.' They VA 'medical staff' all "rolled their eyes at me" and thought I was crazy ! ! They had little to do with me after that, but I have had so many others in the past that came over to my house to tell me that 'I had been correct all the time' with my prediction and presumptions, in Finance and Religion and bible prophecy, for many years now.
But you know what ? The times has passed so swiftly so that there is very little time now to Prepare, get ready for the storm ! ! People, as always, just love to "Procrastinate" and put things off, until the calamity is upon them.... just like the flood in Noah's time ! Oh well.... For once in my life, I want to be READY for the Lord, and have my 'act together.' To be on the winning team... 'when those Saints come marching in.' My goofy problem is that I spent too much to prepare, and now have to pay off the debts... what a bummer, when you wife just doesn't plan with you, but continues to 'beautify HER house' with flowers and un-needed improvements when paying off the plastic would be more wise, IMHO. Sorry. But that electricity is in the air, so to speak, and people are now starting to panic and speculate, and learn the truth about what BHO and Congress are doing... selling us down the river !
But there is one thing that we all can do: pray and serve the Lord, right now.
The Sinister Difference between "ISIS" and "ISIL"
Here is an explanation of the difference between the terms ISIS and ISIL.
I have been suspicious of the term ISIL to which the administration stubbornly clings.
ISIS = Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Iraq is to the east of Jordan (shaped like the hatchet) and Syria is to the north.
ISIL = Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Iraq is still to the east of Jordan, and "the Levant" is a term that comes from "the rising (of the sun,i.e., to the east)" - and is basically the land along the Mediterranean - that includes Lebanon, Israel, and those countries along there.
By saying ISIL, you "negate" Israel as its own country and lump it in with the rest of the countries along the Mediterranean - and Israel sort of disappears (loses its sovereignty) and becomes part of "the Levant" - which is therefore part of ISIL.
If you've wondered, as I have, why all government agencies and especially BHO calls it ISIL and even spells it out every time it's used, instead of ISIS as the rest of the world here's the answer.
Decoding Obama's speech reveals some startling revelations.
In one press conference after another, when referring to the Muslim terror super-group ISIS, United States President Barack Obama will use the term ISIL, instead of their former name ISIS, or current name Islamic State.
Have you ever wondered about that? Here is the difference:
What makes up the near exact center of the Muslim Levant? Israel.
ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant.
Now, to us Westerners we don't really make much of a distinction, do we?
No, honestly from our perspective it's all about the same. But how would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it?
Just what is the Levant anyway? Let's take a look.
The geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It's a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south.
If you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that comprises the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess!
****When Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islamic State as ISIL, he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East, that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the Islamic State.
Now you know why Obama says that he has no plan, no goal, and no stated aim for dealing with ISIS. But he does have a plan, and it's a really nasty,diabolical one. Obama's plan is to drag his feet for as long as he can, doing only the bare minimum that Congress forces him to do. His plan to buy ISIL as much time as possible to make as many gains as they can.
Listen as Obama and his press secretary and the spokesperson for the State Department and his Joint Chiefs of Staff painstakingly spells out the letters I-S-I-L so there is no doubt in your mind.
And it's working.
The Islamic State has garnered millions of dollars, a vast cache of weapons, and in their latest foray have captured Syrian fighter jets and now 12 commercial passenger planes. With each passing day that Obama fulfills his stated aim of doing nothing, the Islamic State grows by leaps and bounds. The ultimate goal, of course, has not changed and will never change.
The ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel.
Now you know a little bit more about why Obama chooses his words so carefully.
