As America Has Done to Israel

    John, I wonder if the US might also be pushing Israel into the evacuations of settlers like this one in the news today.
    Evacuations of 30k Coloradoans from their homes brings to memory the pre-Katrina evacuations timed alongside the Gush Katef settlement evacuations in Israel.

    God bless.

    • Jay: A very good point!

      This has been a sad two days for me though as I’ve watched the news about the fire in Colorado Springs. I live in VA; but if I had a second home, it would have been in this area. Over the past 9 years, I have made several trips to a guest ranch nearby and while there met many wonderful people from the Colorado Springs area, one a Christian lady whose son is one of the evacuees from the fire. Some of my tears have been for the Flying W Ranch–a wonderful Christian based, family oriented, Western style entertainment center. Three of the older Western singers left the Flying W to become pastors of “cowboy churches” in the area. In fact one of the 3 is pastor of a church on the Flying W property. I agree with John’s assessment of this fire and why the judgment was in this particular area; but my heart is breaking anyway.

      I have known for several years that the Air Force Academy was becoming more hostile toward Christianity. Also, even though the organizations that I am most aware of are Christian and I met quite a few people involved in Christian ministries in the area, I am also aware that there are quite a few new age type organizations in and around Colorado Springs. This event is showing me definitely that when God brings judgment on an area there may indeed be many Christians in that area and in the path of destruction. As John keeps reminding us, we (individually) need to draw as close to God as we possibly can; and even though people like Rosalie mentioned look at us as though we are in need of a stright-jacket, we must keep letting people know the why of what is happening.

    First thing I do is read your website to see what our God is doing….God bless you for all you do.

    I agree, our nation is now under judgement – My family thinks I’m crazy when I try to tell them – it’s All About Israel, and our sins as a nation against a Holy God. It is bittersweet, for I know all this must happen before the Bride is taken out.

    “Egypt does not survive the war and all that survive must flee Egypt into the world. Egypt is totally destroyed.”

    John, where do you get this information from? Isaiah 19:25 says that the Lord will bless the Egyptian people in the future. First, though, the earlier part of the chapter says they must go through some very dark times.

      Please read Ezekiel 29-31 and notice the setting is the Day of the LORD.
      Egypt is destroyed just before the Day of the LORD, and then the LORD brings them back during His reign.

      Joe 3:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.
      Joe 3:19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
      Joe 3:20 But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.

    Yes, I thought when Obama started his “Arab Spring” that it was his assault on both Israel and any Christians in countries such as Egypt and Libya. Obama has literally set the Middle East on fire, hoping to destroy Israel. However, he is not intelligent enough to see that God will protect Israel; in the meantime, he gets to travel to Colorado and see his own country burning before his own eyes. He probably doesn’t care that Colorado is burning anyway.
    Also, Bro. McT, isn’t the Air Force Academy in a town that is about to be swallowed up by the fire? Think there might be a link there?

      Please read my blog as I am showing the links to sodomizing the military and setting Israel up with war with Egypt.

        I am in Colorado Springs area now in a town called Monument right by the fire.Some of the Academy is burning and I can see the fire as the fire has split and is moving down a hill across from the freeway on the west side of I-25.My son lives East of the freeway and seems okay for now.Obama plans to come here on Friday so should be interesting.Now we have the health care plan with all kinds of added taxes.What next?Why is so much evil affecting good people?Our Savior is our only hope!!

    It looks like the Academy has not lost any buildings yet just land around the southern perimeter.We have lots of lightning now around pikes peak so I will keep you informed.

  6. Mrs. CJB says:

    Jane thank you for your eye witness updates. We are thinking of you and praying for you and your family. Yes Jane Jesus is the only answer and the Light of the World. Mary, pray often with you for the needs here. Praying for your sister in CO.

    • Mary says:

      Yes,I noticed the HS speaking to us about the same things. So awesome that the Lord brings us into one accord on this site. Thanks for the prayers for my sister. I hope your husband is doing better. Shalom!

    No one is good except Jesus.Yes,it is terrible to see such devastation.Lets pray others can see it too,and connect the dots.Morality equals blessing,immorality brings judgement…and everyone suffers.There is no such thing as an isolated sin,it has a ripple effect…i.e. the garden of eden. Dan.w

    I could use some Godly advice here. Here in Michigan, we have a bug(emrald ash borer) that destroys Ash trees. The bark falls off the tree as it dies, making infested woodlands look like apocalyptic wastelands. I believe this is just one of the many judgments God allows to make us cry out to Him and turn back to Him in repentance. I’m familiar with 2 Chronicles 7:14.
    I read some of these posts, and see that the homes of righteous people are destroyed along with the wicked. This can be a hard enough concept for an adult believer to comprehend-but try explaining it to a 7-year-old. My son asks me, “Dad why is God allowing the Emeral Ash Borer to kill our trees, too?” My son knows our heart for the Lord. He knows we acknowledge Him every single day as our Lord and Savior and look to Him for all provision. We pray to God every night as a family when we put the kids to bed-always thanking God for the many blessings He has provided us.
    Did the plagues in Eygpt affect only Pharoah and the Eygptians? Or did they affect the Israelites, too? Now, I understand the Passover and that if the Israelites had not put blood on their door posts and mantle, their first born would have died, too. Exodus 9:26 says, “Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel [were] was there no hail.” So how do you explain to a 7-year-old when the plagues affect us also? How do you explain it to an adult for that matter? Did I as a father to my children fail to “put blood on our door posts and mantle” in some way?
    When I was in school, I used to hate collective punishment. One or two kids would be talking after the bell rang and the whole class would get to write 500x “I will not talk after the bell”(You know what I’m talking about). Why not just punish the trouble-makers? In the same regard, why do the wildfires burn the homes of the righteous, too? Or the tornado? Or the flood? Or the Emrald Ash Borer? I know there are none that are righteous-no not one-so is that what I tell my son? That these are the consequences of a sinful people and a sinful nation? And that God allow this on us, too; so that we will seek Him more earnestly than we are already? I don’t want to seem like I’m complaining here, because I’m not. I don’t deserve the things I have or the justified position I have in the Lord’s eyes through Christ’s imputed righteousness. I deserve God’s judgment for how I’ve lived, but I’m repenting and trying not just to be a “milk-toast” Christian-trying to study and learn deep things of God. So is that what I tell my son? That this is a rightfully deserved judgment and that we just need to seek the Lord in the midst of it? I’d just like some Godly advice from fellow believers who may have the same questions or have suffered loss(I know some of you have lost loved ones) and see what the Lord has impressed on your hearts when these things happen. Thanks. Keith.

  9. Very good questions Keith O, I am wondering the same. Could it be that troubles are coming on the righteous and evil at the same time so that Christians can stand out as a witness to the unsaved? When they see the Christian seeking the Lord in difficult times, the unsaved have one last chance to turn to the Lord for salvation. I think the Lord is using these difficulties to call people to repentance before it is forever too late. Thanks

    Well June is ending with a bang for sure with the fires blazing, the heatwave sweltering and now severe storms in middle America. It’s too bad most people won’t believe the link, even if we tell them….very sad!

    Not to sound flip or casual regarding my last post.Sometimes we have to sit down and tell our children,there are things God may do or allow,that we may not understand..but just because we may not understand it at the time,God is God,and we have to let Him do what He doe’s,so His final purpose will be made known.In the end it will all work out for those who love God and are called according to His purpose…Jesus can come any time now,I’m ready…Dan.w

    “The changes lend credence to the notion that the Air Force will remove any reference to God or faith that an outside organization brings to its attention,” they wrote.

    17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17. This verse popped into my head when hearing about the losses suffered by believers. Maybe God is allowing us to be tried by fire, so to speak, so as to refine us. God Bless. S.O.

  14. Keith O. says:

    NorthernSparrow, You have a good point. When the pagan sees the child of God repenting it will be an example. I can’t help but ponder Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
    Couple this verse and concept with 2 Samuel 6 where the Israelites were moving the ark on a cart and Uzzah was killed by God for not doing it as God had instructed. I understand that Uzzah was a Levite, but that only priests could touch the ark and that it was to be carried by the Levites with staves-not on a cart.
    While David and the rest may have had good intentions, Uzzah paid the ultimate price for disobedience of God’s word. He perished for lack of knowledge or willful rejection of that knowledge. The people tried to do it their own way-the prideful Babylonian way which can be traced right back to Nimrod and the tower of Babel.
    The more I ponder my original post, the more I see that I DESERVE any judgment that the Lord may send to get MY attention in order that I can correct MY behavior before Him. I accept the personal responsibility in this. Now is the time for the sack cloth and ashes that someone posted about a few days ago.
    Even Daniel admitted to sinning by saying “we” in the following:
    Dan 9:5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:
    Dan 9:6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.
    If Daniel understood and recognized his personal part in the situation he found himself, then I definately can see mine.

    I believe that judgement begins in the house of the Lord can refer to us having known and heard the Scriptures,they are brought to our rememberance that we may repent,each one of us,personally before a Holy God,restoring our position before God,as all sin,whether in thought word or deed,causes a rift or separation.We were,in part,left here for such a time as this,snatching burning embers from the flame,[lost humanity].Never forget that we were once them,so we can show compassion to them,all the while not comprimising truth,but getting it into their hands so they can make a very informed choice of where they can spend eternity.Lets show them the wide chasm between the worlds religious system,and the true way a person is acceptable before God,by faith alone in Christ’s finished works on the Cross. Ephesians 2;8-9 Dan.w
