Watch out! I am reminded of a story in the Bible found in 2 Kings 6. This is about Gideon who was told by the Lord to reduce his army from the original 22,000 men as it was too big. The ones who were fearful and trembled were sent home. 10,000 remained, but the Lord said to Gideon that was still too many. The final culling test was in how they drank from the water. The ones that kneeled down and lapped with their tongue, as a dog does, were set aside. The ones who lapped water putting their hands to their mouths was 300. These were kept and the others sent home. You see these 300 as they drank were constantly aware of what was going on around them – alert and wide awake. These because of their awareness could then be used by the Lord in Gideon’s army.
You decide – is the West becoming like the 300 or like the ones sent home?
Keep alert, keep watch, keep your eyes on Israel and keep in prayer.
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” – Luke 21:28
Absolutely unbelievable!! When you watch these pictures you won’t believe the emphasis people are placing on stuff. Things like this have become their ‘gods’. Shouldn’t the churches today have lines waiting outside of their doors for people to come in and find out about the *free* gift of salvation offered through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary? Yes they should!
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” – Ex 20:3 (KJV)
My Bible Prophecy Commentary – War/s in the Wings:
The headlines of these stories paints a bleak picture of the future for the ME. So which prophesied war is next? What prophesied event is readying for fulfillment? Psalm 83 – Israeli-Arab conflict, Isa 17 – the destruction of Damascus, Eze 38/39 – Russian-Islamic invasion/war of Israel? These are all waiting to play out and I suspect the results of any of these will yield trouble for Israel and the rest of the world. I believe that all of these occur even before the start of Daniel’s Seventieth Week – Dan 9:26-27 – the start of the Tribulation.
The world is becoming or has become a very treacherous place to live. Evil and wickedness coupled with lawlessness is on the rise. Men’s hearts are waxing colder and hate is on its way in abundance. Pride, greed and lust fuel hearts and minds. Power, corruption and coercion have replaced love, concern and compassion. Love is disappearing and there remains little if no fear of God left. Seek the God of the Bible folks, He is always waiting for you to call out and takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked – Eze 33:11.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem – Psa 122:6
“The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day.” – E. M. Bounds
