IDF pummels Gaza, orders call-up, after rockets encroach on Tel Aviv
Verse of the Day
Joel 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.
You need to understand the big picture of what is happening. Last week Assad warned that the war in Syria could expand into a world conflict. Then a few days later, he sent tanks to the border with Israel. Then a few days later, Syrian mortars fired into Israel sparking an Israeli counter attack. Now Hamas is provoking Israel into a war and Iran is conducting a massive mock-war training. It all points to imminent war.
I do not think that Syria would threaten Israel without both Iranian and Russian backing. Hamas would not attack Israel on its own but would coordinate with Iran and Egypt. Right now Egypt is backing Hamas while Syria and Iran are silent. In a few days, we will know how this plays out, but right now it appears that Iran is trying to provoke Israel into a war.
This war could unite the Arabs and take pressure off Syria, and it could tie Israel down so it could not attack Iran. If Syria went to war, it would allow Iran to funnel its army into Syria to attack Israel.
One thing is for sure and that is the war is coming. Is this the trigger: could be? In a few days we will know.
Another sure thing is that both Egypt and Edom (Palestinians) do not survive the war. We are watching the doom of the Arab nations as the God of Israel is going to arise in judgment.
Iran Mounts Massive Drills 11/14/12 I have said many times that Iran will not back down. Iran will fight so the Mahdi can arrive, but Iran and the Muslims are in for a huge surprise as they are about to meet head-on the judgment of the Holy God of Israel. It appears that the time is at hand.
“The drills began on Monday and are aimed at highlighting a handful of new domestically produced missile and defense systems capable of repelling an attack by Western nations. An estimated 8,000 Iranian military forces are said to be participating in the drills, which are noteworthy for both their scope and scale. Iran test-fired “medium-range and low-altitude missile systems” during Tuesday’s military display, according to separate reports. Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and its Armed Forces jointly conducted an air drill Tuesday, according to Mehr.
Military leaders also revealed a new domestically manufactured artillery system that is capable of hitting targets “with pinpoint accuracy” that “cannot be detected by the enemy’s tracking systems,” according to the report. The unveiling of these advanced weapons and missiles is believed to be a warning to America and Israel against conducting a military strike on Iran’s nuclear sites.”
Do not fear and DO NOT SIT AROUND while all this is happening! You can participate in God’s plan through prayer. He wants His church to be part of this. You will grow in faith.
Once again no fear, but you stand with Israel by faith, prayer and in the name of Jesus.
May the LORD God of Israel bless and protect you.
Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Israel and the Middle East War
“Israel moved closer to an all-out ground war with Hamas Thursday, as Israeli planes, tanks and gunboats pounded suspected militant positions in Gaza in retaliation for another day of Hamas rocket attacks that left at least three Israelis dead. Tel Aviv residents say they heard an explosion following an air-raid alert across the city, raising fears of a Gaza rocket strike on Israel’s commercial capital.”
“Earlier, Netanyahu had declared, “If there is a need, the military is prepared to expand the operation. We will continue to do everything to protect our citizens.” Egypt’s Islamist president has ordered his prime minister to lead a senior delegation to Gaza in a show of support for the coastal strip’s Hamas rulers in the face of Israel’s offensive. State television said Thursday that, on orders from President Mohammed Morsi, Hesham Kandil will go to Gaza Friday. It said the delegation will also try and meet the “urgent needs” of Gaza residents. Earlier on Thursday, Morsi vowed to work to stop Israel’s campaign against Hamas, calling the Jewish state’s actions there “unacceptable.”
“Rockets hit Gush Dan area for first time since 1991 Gulf War; Israel suffers first three fatalities after rocket hits residential building in Kiryat Malachi; three soldiers injured by mortar fire; 274 rockets fired into Israel since start of operation.”
IDF requests approval to call up 30,000 reservists 11/15/12 This is a sure sign of a major war coming.
Egypt president vows to work to stop Israeli campaign, sends PM to Gaza 11/15/12 Morsi said nothing while Hamas was shelling Israel, but now that Israel is ready to destroy Hamas, he wants to stop Israel.
“Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood condemned the assassination of Hamas military chief Ahmed Al-Jabari, and called on the authorities in Cairo to sever diplomatic and commercial ties with Israel.
The powerful group said in a statement that “the Egyptian government must be the first to (cut ties), and serve as an example to Arabs and Muslims who maintain relations with this entity.” The statement further called on the Palestinian Authority to immediately halt its defense cooperation with the IDF.
The Brotherhood urged Egyptians to take to the streets and protest in front of major mosques in Cairo and other cities after Friday prayers, with a central rally taking place in front of the Al-Azhar Mosque in the capital.
The demonstrations are meant to show that Egyptians denounce the Israeli strikes on Gaza. “We urge the entire nation to join the Muslim Brotherhood in showing our rage over the Zionist entity’s attacks and our support for the Palestinian resistance at rallies that will take place after Friday prayers,” Muhammad Badie, the movement’s supreme guide, said on Facebook.”
Obama Still Silent as Egypt Backs Hamas 11/15/12 Will Obama back Israel against his close friends, the Muslim Brotherhood!
