|Israel's Iron Dome destroying HAMAS rockets evening of 13DEC17|
13 December 2017: As of this evening, and within the past three hours, additional war by attrition rocket fire from Gaza into Israel has occurred. At least three rockets were fired by Gaza terrorists as of this writing. This rocket fire into Israel is exactly what the Spirit-inspired prophet Ezekiel intended when he wrote in Ezekiel 28:24...
"And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house of Israel, nor grieving thorn of all round about them, that despised them; and they shall know that I the Lord GOD."The key context in the above Divine warning strictly applies not only to all of Gaza, but also to Lebanon, Judea, Samaria, Sinai and Jordan. Make no mistake, when it comes to Israel returning fire in a meaningful manner, that fire will be merciless, unrelenting and overwhelming. The meaningful IDF response, when it comes, will not consist pin-pricks at local HAMAS or Jihad Islami targets of opportunity. The meaningful response will cleanse Gaza completely, permanently of any threat to Israel.

Nevertheless, this overt display powerfully illustrates Israel's current secular nature. It graphically illustrates Israel's thanksgiving to America for the blessing bestowed upon it instead of the God of their fathers. It illustrates how willing Israel will be to accept a secular "covenant among many" that comes in the wake of the battle of Ezekiel 38/39. If you're thinking as Eschatology Today is thinking about this - there's something wrong with this eschatologically based upon what Ezekiel revealed from God in chapter 39:21-29.
It occurs in this thinking that one method with which the Lord can and will instantaneously change this particular Israel-America paradigm would be to send His Son for His bride. The blessed hope of all born-again believers, a great majority of whom dwell in these United States, the Harpazo, will instantly alter the secular and religious dynamic back to and probably well beyond what was experienced during the eight years of the Obama Administration. Back to a vehemently leftist and very anti-Israel dynamic with the Restrainer removed. We've all had thoughts on this for some time now. Based upon those thoughts what is stated above seems very reasonable to assume for the near future.
If you find disagreement with this, then take a look at what the venom-spewing Israeli leftists are saying today in their analysis piece at Haaretz: Blame the Christians for the coming of Armageddon. Already we are hated for His Name's sake. So comes the fulfillment of the Lord's prophecy found in Matthew 10:22-23.
Look up! Marana'tha!
|Jerusalem is the capital of Israel 7 December 2017|
07 December 2017: The above image is obviously one taken by a Reuters photographer this morning somewhere in Judea and Samaria as the American recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital city occurred well after sundown. The scene above is one we all expected to see this morning. The battle lines are clearly drawn and low-intensity conflict of various forms has been engaged by the IDF in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and soon from Gaza and the Sinai.
