      Believe it or not many ppl choose not to accept Christ’s wonderful free gift because they are living in the here and now and are quite attached to the things of this world. I came from a well to do worldly, pretentious family. I had everything money could buy but I never knew what love was until I received Christ as my Savior at a young age. The Lord moved very early in my life and I wanted to follow Him which made my family very unhappy.

      Daniel 12:8-10 NKJV

      8 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, “My lord, what shall be the end of these things?”

      9 And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 10 Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

      It’s sad to hear about the “immigrants” being recruited into an army. The luciferians have big plans which, thankfully, will come to naught.

      In the end times, the wicked shall do wickedly. They don’t understand since their greed and pride has blinded them.

      Tokyo Olympics open in Japan with celebrities singing the atheist national anthem “Imagine” inviting people to live in a world without God

      NTEB

      John Legend, Keith Urban, and Angélique Kidjo led a version of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s utopian anthem “Imagine” at the Tokyo Olympics, which featured Legend, whose net worth is an estimated $75 million, belting out the line “imagine no possessions.”

      This is the dream of all God-rejecting Liberals everywhere, to live in a world unencumbered by the perfect, righteous and holy God who will hold them accountable, and instead invite you to ‘imagine’ a place where there is no hope of Heaven. That place is called Hell in the Bible, and you better pray that the imagination portrayed in that song does not come true for you. So after 17 months of a global pandemic, the whole world is coming together to imagine living without God.

      And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.” Jeremiah 18:12 

      In your King James Bible, the word ‘imagination’ appears 14 times, and in every one of those times it points to the wickedness and evil of the unregenerate human heart. I wonder if John Lennon knew that when he wrote the anti-God atheist national anthem ‘Imagine’? Fun fact, your Not Inspired Version NIV bible removes all 14 instances of the word ‘imagination’, providing only 2 spots with the word ‘imagination’, not matching the King James, and floundering in watered-down meaninglessness.

      Imagine there’s no heaven
      It’s easy if you try
      No hell below us
      Above us, only sky
      Imagine all the people
      Livin’ for today
      I hope someday you’ll join us
      And the world will live as one

      From BREITBART News: The Opening Ceremony kicked off on Friday with several artists participating in a rendition of “Imagine” — which asks listeners to, ironically, imagine there are “no countries.” The Suginami Junior Chorus and Spanish musician Alejandro Sanz were also featured in the number.

      Legend, an overtly leftist Hollywood activist, belted out the lyrics, “Imagine no possessions/I wonder if you can/No need for greed or hunger/A brotherhood of man/ Imagine all the people/ Sharing all the world. The multi-millionaire “All of Me” singer, who considered fleeing the U.S. because of former President Trump, is no stranger to the hypocrisy.

      I heard that this song has been sung at the last several Olympics.  My own step-brother said it was his favorite music and they played it at his funeral, with the pastor talking about it and trying to make it sound like a good thing.  When I heard it during the Opening Ceremony though, it really hit me.  Yes, this is what the globalists want–no countries, no religion,  no possessions, no heaven, no hell.

      Truly sad when anyone for whatever reason rejects their creator God!

      As He will return the favor in kind!

      In the end, there will be no reason plausible enough to pull anyone back from Hell!

      His judgements are righteous and we are all born with an innate knowledge of God and of right and wrong!  Let alone all the ways and times He has reached out!  There will be no pleading ignorance and no excuse against God shall stand!

      Ergo highlighting the fact that are only two types of people!  Saved and unsaved!

        Bob Marley was Christian long before death, said to have Called upon Jesus on his deathbed

        Christianity Today

        7/25/21

        Bob Marley was born on Feb 6., and although many are familiar with the reggae legend as a Rastafarian, others may be surprised to hear that he was baptized as an Orthodox Christian before his death.

        Marley was an influential figure in the global expansion of a Rastafarian religious movement through his music. The movement began in 1930s Jamaica, focusing on the worship of former Ethiopian Emperor, Haile Selassie I, whose followers believe him to be a messiah that will lead them into righteousness and prosperity.

        Although Marley sang and spoken about being a Rasta, some say he converted to Christianity before his death. Abuna Yesehaq, archbishop of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church in the Western Hemisphere who died in 2005, admitted that he baptized Marley about one year before his death.

        Yesehaq appeared in a 1984 interview with Jamaica Gleaner’s Sunday magazine, titled “Abuna Yesehaq Looks Back on 14 Years of Ministry in Jamaica,” in which he spoke about Marley’s desire to become a Christian long before his death.

        “Bob was really a good brother, a child of God, regardless of how people looked at him,” Yesehaq said. “He had a desire to be baptized long ago, but there were people close to him who controlled him and who were aligned to a different aspect of Rastafari. But he came to church regularly.”

        In the interview, Yesehaq addressed claims that Marley’s terminal cancer was the motivation behind his acceptance of Jesus Christ as his personal Savior.

        “When he toured Los Angeles and New York and England, he preached the Orthodox faith, and many members in those cities came to the Church because of Bob,” Yesehaq said. “Many people think he was baptized because he knew he was dying, but that is not so. He did it when there was no longer any pressure on him, and when he was baptized, he hugged his family and wept, they all wept together for about half an hour.”

        Judy Mowatt, a reggae and gospel singer who formerly sang backup for Marley in the group I Threes, recalled learning about Marley’s conversion to Christianity in an interview with Cross Rhythms radio. Mowatt spoke with her former bandmate and Marley’s wife, Rita, about the late musician calling out to Jesus Christ on his death bed.

        “When Bob was on his dying bed, his wife Rita called me on the phone and said to me that Bob was in such excruciating pain and he stretched out his hand and said, ‘Jesus take me.’ I was wondering to myself, ‘Why is it that Bob said Jesus and not Selassie,'” Mowatt questioned. “Then I met a friend of mine and he said his sister, who is a Christian, was a nurse at the hospital where Bob was before he passed on, and she led him to the Lord Jesus Christ. So when Rita saw him saying ‘Jesus take me,’ he had already received the Lord Jesus Christ in his life.”

        Bob Marley died from cancer in 1981 at the age of 36. Yesehaq conducted the rites for the musician’s funeral.

      I always questioned Ethiopia as being a part of the invasion. This makes more sense to me.

      It really bothers me to see America racing towards self destruction. I watched the remake of the movie Midway. What would those men think if they saw us today?!  One of my uncles was on the USS West Virginia when it was sunk by the Japanese at Pearl. He swam through oil burning on top of the water and lived. Another Uncle was at the Battle of the Bulge. Another was shot down over Germany. He spent the rest of the war in a POW camp. Still another was captured by the North Koreans and was a POW until the Armistice. Think of my poor Grandmother!  She sure loved the Lord

        U.S. Navy admiral says he’s open to idea of giving Chinese Navy tour of carrier

        Fox News

        7/23/14

        A top U.S. Navy official said he is “receptive” to idea of letting his Chinese crewmen tour a U.S. aircraft carrier based in Japan, but experts warn such access could be a risky intelligence giveaway.

        Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert, chief of naval operations, told The Wall Street Journal that his Chinese counterpart mentioned the idea of a U.S. carrier crew touring its lone Liaoning carrier and a Chinese crew touring the USS George Washington.

        “I’m receptive to that idea,” Greenert, who saw the Liaoning and other Chinese ships on a recent trip, told the paper.

        Nan Li, an associate professor in the U.S. Naval War College’s China Maritime Studies Institute, however, said Beijing would likely benefit more from a tour than the U.S. Navy.

        “In theory, they (China) could see some of the ship’s technology,” he said. Li, however, also said the U.S. could gain from a tour of the Chinese carrier launched in 2012.

        “We would be able to see how far behind their ship is compared to ours, and can demonstrate to them how powerful their ship is, and maybe they would respect it,” he said.

        The discussion between navy officials comes at a sensitive time in China-U.S. relations. China has recently made assertive moves in the South China Sea, like deploying an oil rig in the disputed waters. The U.S. finds itself in a difficult position. It would like to strengthen ties with Beijing, without jeopardizing its standing with smaller allies in the region concerned about a Chinese power-grab.

        The Journal’s report said U.S. law forbids any cooperation with the Chinese military that may risk military knowledge.

        Greenert played down the significance of a possible tour and said the idea is not “revolutionary.” He told the paper Chinese military have been taken on board carriers for years. Recently, Chinese Navy officers visited the USS Ronald Reagan, while at sea, during naval drills off Hawaii.

        But that drill may have inadvertently displayed the fragile and complex relations between the two countries. When China took part in the exercise, Beijing reportedly sent an uninvited spy ship to monitor the drills. 

        Li said the fact China sent a spy ship to monitor the drills illustrates the fragile relationship.

        “It’s a contradiction,” he said. “China shows it wants to cooperate, but by sending that spy ship, it shows hostility,” he said.

        No decision was made, but the move could happen within a year if policymakers on both sides support the idea. Greenert left China on Friday after holding an ‘all-hands’ call with a Chinese crew about various topics like port visits and his view of women in the service.

        “We’re talking more. They’re speaking English. It’s a civil tone — it’s good,” he said.

        Most commented and said this admiral should be tried for treason.

        I commented

        This is not “house hunting” is he trying to sell the ship? You really got to wonder if this Navy admiral was bribed to give this “tour”. Nothing really surprises me anymore . . .

        My dad was in the navy (he served during the Korean War time) and I asked him if they did this while he served … He said “NO! you just don’t give tours like this . . . especially to the enemy.”

        —————————-

        Then you had a few who are the modern young Naval officers that thought nothing was wrong with this tour show … :wacko:

        Here is one post … “All the sensitive information is behind locked doors. Nothing will be seen. I’m not crazy about the idea but it’s safe. We gave tours all the time on the Saratoga but they were for our allies.”

      Mark Zukerberg is positioning Facebook to take over online worship services and his first line of attack is partnership with Laodicean Hillsong

      NTEB

      Mark Zuckerberg believes the coronavirus pandemic has created a new opportunity for Facebook to grow. His plan involves incentivizing churchgoers — who have become familiar with virtual services over the past year due to lockdowns — to permanently move their religious worship online.

      Just a short while ago, Facebook removed my post because it went against their Community Standards, and was something that could potentially ’cause harm’ to certain groups of people. What was in that post that was so egregious and offensive to the Facebook censors? It was Proverbs 20:1 warning against the corrupting influence of alcohol. Now Facebook wants to control the Christian worship service, and to that end, they have found the perfect first willing victim. Laodicean Hillsong.

      I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:15,16

      Charles Spurgeon once prophetically remarked that ‘A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats’. Hillsong Church and all their ilk are the living, breathing fulfillment of that statement from the 19th century. The fact that they are partnering with Facebook to create a ‘modern worship experience to engage 21st century technology-savvy users’ shows me the falling away from 2 Thessalonians is now complete. ;-)  

      Mark Zuckerberg Wants Laodicean Churchgoers to Connect with God on Facebook

      From BREITBART News: The company is intensifying its formal partnerships with faith groups across the United States and shaping the future of churchgoing as it entices users to connect with God on Facebook, rather than at a place of worship, according to a report by the New York Times.

      For example, Facebook developers had reportedly met weekly with the Hillsong Church in Atlanta, Georgia, to explore what the church would look like if it were on Facebook instead, as well as what apps they might create for financial giving, video capability, and livestreaming.

      “Together, we are discovering what the future of the church could be on Facebook,”. Said Sam Collier, Hillsong’s Pastor.

      In June, the church issued a news release saying it was “partnering with Facebook,” and then began streaming its services exclusively on the social media platform. Facebook now seeks to “become the virtual home for religious community,” reports the Times, noting that the pandemic sparked this strategy for drawing more engaged users to the social media platform, as religious groups have already been pushed to explore alternative ways to operate in the wake of lockdowns.

      “The partnerships reveal how Big Tech and religion are converging far beyond simply moving services to the internet. Facebook is shaping the future of religious experience itself, as it has done for political and social life,” the report adds.

      But not everybody thinks this is a good idea — especially given Facebook’s reputation with regards to censorship, and generally behaving in an unscrupulous and questionable manner.

      “Corporations are not worried about moral codes,” notes University of Edinburgh lecturer Sarah Lane Ritchie. “I don’t think we know yet all the ways in which this marriage between Big Tech and the church will play out.”

      Bob Pritchett, who founded Faithlife Corporation, which publishes and creates electronic tools for Bible study, said it is dangerous to have your community anchored “on a tech platform that is susceptible to all the whims of politics and culture and congressional hearings.”

      Iran for the first time launched a suicide drone on Friday, July 30, against an Israeli-operated merchant vessel, the Mercer Street,north of the Omani island of Masirah in the Indian Ocean. Two crewmen, a Briton and a Romanian, were killed as the ship caught fire. The US Navy rushed to the burning ship’s aid and escorted it to harbor in Abu Dhabi, in the UAE. It was attacked while on its way from Dar es Salaam to Fujairah with no cargo aboard.

      The Israeli owners had transferred the vessel to Japanese ownership after previous less serious incidents against their ships in the same region, while continuing to operate it from their London-based Zodiac Maritime Office.

      Defense Minister Benny Gantz called an urgent conference on Friday night with Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi and other senior commanders, following which Gantz announced that Israel would make an “appropriate response” to the attack.

      DEBKAfile adds: The event broke new ground as indicated by the following:

      1. It marked Iran’s first direct armed drone attack on an Israeli merchant vessel.

      2. The drone was identified by a US official as a “one way” drone – although the Americans stayed clear of former incidents of this kind. He added that “other drones took part” indicating a concerted assault. This confirmed an earlier report from the private maritime intelligence firm Dryad Global of a drone sighting around the vessel prior to the attack.

      3. Iranian sources, including the Al Alam Arabic language TV channel, reported that the Israeli vessel was attacked in reprisal for Israel’s air strike of July 22 against Revolutionary Guards bases at Qusayr, 25km from Aleppo in western Syria. They revealed that a number of Iranians were killed in that strike.
      (Russian officials claimed that all the missiles fired by Israeli jets in that attack had been intercepted by Russian-made air defense systems.)

      4. This was the first time that Tehran had cited Israeli military action in Syria as justification for attacking an Israeli commercial vessel.

      5. Saudi sources disclosed that on that same Friday night, one of their ships was also attacked with armed drones wielded by Iranian-backed Yemeni Houthi rebels in the Red Sea.

      Matt 24

      23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

      26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

      Vatican foundation bestows Chrislam “Man of Humanity” award on Architect of the Abraham Accords Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed 

      NTEB

      The Vatican’s Foundation Gravissimum Educationis has granted the ‘Man of Humanity’ Award to His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

      All through 2019, NTEB chronicled the signing of the Chrislam Covenant known as the Declaration On Human Fraternity that Pope Francis and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb sealed with a kiss on February 25th of that year. But what we did not know at first was that was only made possible by the efforts of Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed of the United Arab Emirates.

      “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make itdesolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”Daniel 9:27

      Mohamed bin Zayed pops up nearly every time when we do a story on the Abraham Accords, on Chrislam, or on the One World Religion currently ‘under construction’ by the Roman pontiff Pope Francis. Why? Because he has a strong hand in all those things. Mohamed bin Zayed was the silent witness to the signing of the Declaration of Human Fraternity in Abu Dhabi, he was the main driving force behind creating the Abraham Accords, and he was personally appointed by Pope Francis to serve in a leadership role in the One World Religion of Chrislam. At the beginning of July, the Vatican gave him with the ‘Man of Humanity’ award that is every bit creepily end times as it sounds like it is.


      In the UAE, Sheikh Mohamed has worked with determination in building the nation, serving its citizens, and helping them realise their aspirations. Globally, he has dedicated resources in support of the humanitarian causes by taking bold steps and launching innovative initiatives in the humanitarian fields for the good of the mankind. To date, the UAE has provided aid to medical staff and front line workers in more than 135 countries to curb the spread of COVID-19.

      In March, Sheikh Mohamed was awarded ‘The 2021 DIHAD International Personality Award for Humanitarian Relief ‘ as a gesture of international gratitude for His Highness’s continuous support and dedicated efforts in reinforcing humanitarian work.

      This prestigious award is one of the most prominent of its kind, presented by the supervising scientific committee at ‘DIHAD’ in n recognition of international figures and leaders who play a prominent role in supporting people in need around the world and international institutions and international organisations working in the fields of humanitarian relief.

      I googled Duck Duck Go it … if one of his hobbies happens to be owning horses … especially a white one? ;-)     Hmmm …. :popcorn

      The 28th edition of the UAE President’s Cup World Series for Purebred Arabian Horses is set to kick off on Saturday at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland, US.

      To be held under the patronage of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, with the support of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and the directives of Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, the US race will be first on the world series’ 2021 agenda, which was expanded to include races across 15 countries around the world, including the UAE, Tunisia and Argentina.

      The 1,700-metre Group 1, the first race of the series, will feature a field of 12 strong US Arabian fillies and mares, aged four years and above, competing to win $100,000 worth of prizes.

      The UAE’s world series will be held as part of the146th running of the historical and coveted Preakness Stakes.

      The second round will take place on Sunday at the Paris Longchamp Racecourse in France.

      The series promotes the UAE’s efforts to promote global awareness about purebred Arabian horses and their significance in the UAE’s culture and history.

      The UAE has become a dedicated supporter of its mission to promote the culture and heritage of the Arabian Peninsula through its prized possession, the purebred Arabian horse.

      The Emirates Equestrian Federation launched the President of the UAE Cup Series for Purebred Arabian Horses in 1994 to promote the noble breed globally, which is now growing in popularity and appeal.

      Established by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan to promote and celebrate Arabian horses, especially in Europe and North America, and to prove that they can race competitively with thoroughbred horses, the UAE President’s Cup Series is the first international race series for Arabian horses and remains the premier race for the breed.

      Meanwhile, unbeaten colt Hurricane Lane secured his place in this year’s Derby with an impressive display in the G2 Dante Stakes at York on Thursday.

      The Charlie Appleby-trained three-year-old, making his Pattern-race debut on the back of a comfortable win in a Newbury conditions race, broke on terms and soon disputed second as Roman Empire strode on into an uncontested lead.

      Roman Empire kicked on at the top of the straight and opened up a six-length advantage passing the two-furlong pole before fading as Hurricane Lane and Megallan moved up to challenge entering the final furlong.

      Hurricane Lane continued to stay on powerfully for William Buick, establishing a narrow lead over Megallan half a furlong from home before asserting in the closing stages for a three-quarter length success in the extended 10-furlong contest.

      Charlie Appleby said: “We are delighted with Hurricane Lane, who has travelled and stayed well. He has galloped through the line strongly today and shown plenty of stamina, so he hopefully ticks a lot of boxes for the Derby.

      “I have spoken to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and he was also pleased. Provided Hurricane Lane comes out this race fit and well, the Derby is the obvious next target.”

      William Buick said: “I was very pleased with Hurricane Lane. This is usually the most important trial and it’s not very often that you get a G1 winner like Gear Up in the race. It looked like a strong renewal and this race normally throws up a very live Derby candidate.

      “It was only Hurricane Lane’s third run, so he is still learning on the job. He jumped out and we got ourselves a nice position where I could leave him alone and build him up how I wanted to.

      “For a trial, it was a truly run race – I guess the first half might have been a bit steady – but this horse will benefit from a mile and a half. He has a lovely attitude and has shown in his last two runs how he loves nothing more than a battle on his hands. He goes through the gears in his own time but does it quickly and answers every call.

      “He will hopefully go to the Derby with good credentials. He has done nothing but improve and has come out of this important test with flying colours. He is learning on the job but has done everything a little bit smoother and a little bit quicker each time he has run.”

      From Amir Tsarfati:

      “The British defense ministry: another maritime incident took place east of Fujairah off the coasts of the United Arab Emirates!”
      Then a while later: “BREAKING: Two ships off the coast of the United Arab Emirates are broadcasting warnings that they have lost control of their steering under unclear circumstances as authorities reported “an incident” was underway in the area.”
      Next, “The Associated Press reports that four vessels near the port of Fujairah are listed as “out of control” in the marine identification systems. The rule usually of such a status is that the vessel can not operate its engines and has no steering.”
      Then, “Kidnapping of a ship in the United Arab Emirates.  British media:
      The ship Asphalt Princess, which carries the Panama flag and carries cement, was hijacked off the coast of the United Arab Emirates after a group of 8-9 gunmen boarded it.”
      And again, “It’s been so far 6 ships in the Persian gulf that all communication with them is lost!”

      Yes, this piggybacks onto Tammie’s previous thread.  My first thought was that this could start World War III !!

      antichrist has been thought to be a man from Europe, because of the Romans destroying the temple and Jerusalem in 70AD

      Daniel 9:26-27 New King James Version (NKJV)
      26 “And after the sixty-two weeks
      Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;
      And the people of the prince who is to come
      Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.
      The end of it shall be with a flood,
      And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
      27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
      But in the middle of the week
      He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
      And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
      Even until the consummation, which is determined,
      Is poured out on the desolate.”

      unless the Daniel passage refers to a coming destruction Zechariah talked about where Jerusalem is a battle target and the 3rd temple has already been desecrated by antichrist prior to this battle. the attacks against Israel won’t be ended until Jesus stops them

      Zechariah 14:1-3 New King James Version (NKJV)
      The Day of the Lord
      14 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming,
      And your spoil will be divided in your midst.
      2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;
      The city shall be taken,
      The houses rifled,
      And the women ravished.
      Half of the city shall go into captivity,
      But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
      3 Then the Lord will go forth
      And fight against those nations,
      As He fights in the day of battle.

      Defense Minister Benny Grants says today that Israel is NOW ready to strike Iran to prevent them from acquiring nuclear bomb capabilities 

      Israel is ready to strike Iran, Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Thursday, as tensions between the two countries continue to mount following a deadly drone attack against a civilian commercial ship in the Gulf.

      The new government in the post-Netanyahu Israel is really coming out pretty strong, much stronger than I had expected them to be. In fact, this new Israeli class of leaders may just do something that Bibi threatened many times to do but never did. Strike Iran to shut down their nuclear capabilities for at least a generation. Oh those wars and rumours of wars.

      “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these thingsmust come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:6-8

      Of course, this is long overdue and Iran has had over 10 years now since signing their pacts with Russia, who as Ezekiel 39 tells us, will step in once the fur starts flying. Israel attacking Iran now will only accelerate the end times timeline which, from my perspective, is a good thing. I am in favor of all Bible prophecy coming to pass, the negative as well as the positive, because if God said it, that’s good enough for me. I’m all in, and hopefully soon, all up.

      Gantz says Israel is ready to strike Iran to stop its aggression and nuclear program

      From the Jerusalem Post: Speaking to Ynet, Gantz was asked by Attila Somfalvi if the Jewish State was ready to strike Tehran, to which he answered “yes”, adding that the Islamic Republic was a threat to the country, the Middle East, and the entire world. Israel considers Iran’s nuclear program as the number one concern and though Tehran has always denied seeking nuclear weapons, it is believed that they are continuing to develop the capabilities to produce a nuclear arsenal and to make ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

      “Iran is an international and regional problem. The world witnessed one example on Friday,” Gantz said referring to the deadly attack against the Mercer Street tanker that was struck by a suicide drone. “This could happen to anyone,” he said.

      With new Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi taking over on Thursday from moderate Hassan Rouhani, Gantz said he could lead Iran to even more extreme regional and security policies.

      “I’M TELLING THE WORLD, PAY ATTENTION. IT’S COMING.”
      The defense minister warned that Israel has to continue to develop its abilities to cope with multiple fronts because “this is the future.”

      Iran seeks to pose a multi-front challenge to Israel and is building up its forces in Lebanon and Gaza, deploying militias in Syria and Iraq and maintaining its supporters in Yemen. Iran is a global and regional problem and a challenge to Israel,” Gantz said.

      Israel, he said, is dealing with the Iranian threat in an active manner against its proxies in Syria, Lebanon and Gaza.

      “At the end of the day, when a Palestinian Islamic Jihad operative in Gaza fires on Israel, he does it with the support of Iran. We know this and are dealing with it on a number of levels, in various means and in several different places,” he said, adding that Israel will continue to act.

      Nationwide emergency alert test to happen on August 11th

      AZ family.com

      Phoenix, AZ – an emergency alert test will be sent nationwide to televisions, radios and select cell phones issued by FEMA.  The tests will begin at 11:20 am MST on August 11th and will be sent to electronics that have opted to receive test messages.

      The tests are in preparation and raise awareness about emergencies and how to prepare for disaster situations.  The dept encourages Arizona to opt in for emergency alerts.

      So this is a nationwide emergency alert test  … but why are they only urging Arizonans to opt in for the tests?  Do you suppose something bad is going to occur in the “Phoenix” region?   Perchance … Phoenix bird rising out of the ashes?  And is August 11th a high watch date?

      There is a very high probability that Israel, with or without allies, will attack Iran with all military force it can muster… including the preemptive use of nuclear weapons… before our calendar can roll over from September to October 2021. That’s less than 10 weeks from yesterday.

      This assumes PM Naftali Bennett is a man who means what he says.

      “Iran has violated all of the guidelines set in the JCPOA and is only around 10 weeks away from acquiring weapons-grade materials necessary for a nuclear weapon. Therefore it is time to act.”

      🚨 Red Alert – Just moments ago rocket sirens alerted on the Golan, HaGalil, Ha Elyon area.

      This is expected as a result of the current war tension with Iran.

      Isaiah 17 (destruction of Damascus and Syria) has always been assessed here at Eschatology Today blog as being directly linked to Jeremiah 49, verses 23-27 and 34-39.

      Israel has warned the US that any break in nuke talks, as distraction and delaying tactic in itself, would trigger an Iranian breakout to nuclear weapons capability.

      We have arrived at that moment; there is no walking it back now – game over.

      7:54 AM
      Thus far Hezbollah has fired 19 of their 122mm rockets to virtual combat ineffective status.

      As expected, HAMAS has joined the fray with Hezbollah and Iran. Next is Syria, and Pali’s in Judea and Samaria.

      In case no one remembers, the Psalm 83 war scenario final act is a multi-front conflict that will make the 1947, 1967, 1973 and 2006 wars pale in comparison.

        Wow, this is exciting intel news … sure sounds like this could be it … the door on Flight 777 gets slam shut  and all systems GO … prepare for take off :popcorn  … while the dispensation of the Church Age ends. :yes:

        “Days of war”? … praying for Israel’s protection.

        Meanwhile if it all starts today/tomorrow … then perhaps by Wed.  the 11th the FEMA emergency broadcast announcement is really all about explaining to the left behind … “about our disappearance and trying to calm the chaos and confusion?” B-)

      Praying for Israel’s protection too

      By the way, yesterday after we got home from shopping, there was a message left that the Louisiana Dept of Health had called to schedule a group phone call tonight at 6 to discuss the vax. They told us to answer our phone at 6pm.

      I thought this move got pushed to the back burner … but it could be a reality soon.  The Iranians are fed up with the Ayatollah Khomeini dictatorship and are crying out for the REAL Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi of Iran to be reinstated.  He currently lives in the Washington DC area.  And can you see this switcheroo happening after IDF removes Iran’s nuclear threats?  And is this part of the “peace and safety” for the region? :unsure:

      Historic Delegation of Iranians Bring Vision of Peace to Israel

      CBN News
      Chris Mitchell
      8/4/21

      JERUSALEM, Israel – For decades, the Islamic Republic of Iran has committed great time and resources to the destruction of Israel.  Over the years, cracks in support of the Islamic regime continue to grow. That helped lead to a historic visit to Israel this week by a group of Iranian ex-patriots.

      The group’s trip came at a tumultuous time for Iran. Demonstrators in the country’s southwest are protesting the government’s decision to limit their water supply.  Several people have been killed and more protests have spread throughout the country calling for regime change.

      As we heard on the streets of Iran, people were shouting against the Iranian government, ‘Israel is not our enemy. America is not our enemy. You are’ – referring to the Iranian regime – ‘our enemy.’  People in Iran realize who is their enemy and they are trying to do their best to get rid of the Iranian regime,” Dr. Amir Hamidi, a member of the delegation, told CBN News.

      While these protests continue inside the country, Iranians are showing support to Israel for the first time. 

      “They want to mark history,” said Ellie Cohanim, Senior Fellow at the Center for Security Policy.

      The group came with the Institute for Voices of Liberty, which is dedicated to encouraging democracy in Iran. Cohanim’s family fled the republic when she was five years old.

      “They are here to tell the people of Israel that they support them, and they reject the Iranians regime’s anti-Semitism and genocidal desire to wipe Israel off the face of the earth,” said Cohanim.

      In 1979, the revolution led by Ayatollah Khomeini turned Iran from a pro-Western power to a country dedicated to destroying Israel and spreading its Islamic beliefs worldwide. The Iranians on this delegation call the past 42 years an aberration in Iran’s long history.

      “Unfortunately, this regime is at war with Iranian history, culture, civilization and, most importantly, the Iranian values of tolerance and acceptance,” said Dr. Ben Tabatabaei, an international business and economist.

      “We’re here to make it very clear to the people of Israel that the Iranian people stand with the people of Israel and that we condemn the regime in Iran, which is the occupying force,” he added.

      For the past year, the world has heard about the Abraham Accords, historic peace deals Israel has signed with its Arab neighbors. One of the goals of this delegation is to let people know about the so-called Cyrus Accords.

      “Cyrus Accords, a peace deal between Israel and a future free democratic Iran is possible as well,” said Len Khodorkovsky, a former senior advisor to the US special representative for Iran.

      These accords are named after the Persian king, who allowed the Jews to rebuild the Second Temple in Jerusalem.

      Khodorkovsky says this event led the Iranian people to believe “that for 2500 years, there were warm relations between the people of Israel and the people of Iran.”

      Cohanim says her story is a “prime example” of warm relations between Iran and the Jewish people.

      “The Iranian Jews, we were one of the most ancient Jewish communities in the world.  We lived side by side with our neighbors for 2500 years. I am Iranian culturally. My heart is still with my brothers and sisters in the country. And so, this Iranian regime that came in in 1979, they are a complete aberration. They preach hatred but the people are rejecting it,” said Cohanim.

      Ahmad Batbei, an Iranian activist, served two years in an Iranian prison as a political prisoner.  He, too, is sending a message of love to Israel.

      “The main message is we are not your enemy. We love you. We can be not necessarily friends. We can be brothers. We have a lot of cultural values that we can make up a good Middle East with these values,” he said.

      Although the mission traveled throughout the country, they felt it significant as Iranians to visit Jerusalem, the city a once-great Persian ruler helped rebuild.

      “I wish you could have seen the awe that the various delegates saw when they walked in the City of David, when they heard the history that stems from Cyrus the Great through various millennia and how much the two people have in common,” said Khodorkovsky.

      “I think it just reinforced the reason why they came here.  And we hope that this is not a one-off, that this is a beginning of a long-term process, which inevitably ends up in peace and prosperity for both people right after they sign the Cyrus Accords, of course,” he added.

      In the meantime, their hearts remain back home.

      Lots of my countrymen inside Iran, which I talk to them, I read them messages and so on, they are hoping. They are desperate and they’re waiting every minute, every for the dismantlement of the Iranian Islamic Republic,” said Hamidi.

        Personally … I wouldn’t answer the call.   It’s weird how they assumed you would be home then … you could be on vacation or have other plans.   Unless … do they have spies in a vehicle across the street watching and observing your daily schedule for the past week?  Can you put your vehicle in the garage just in case to make it look like you’re not home and close the blinds or curtains and not turn on the lights?

        Praying they stop bothering you and your family and the call never happens.

      God has already turned them over to a reprobate mind

      Romans 1:28

      And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

       

      II Timothy 3:13

      But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

       

      II Thess 2:10 -11

      And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

      And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

      That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

       

      What Truth do they not believe?

      John 14:6   Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

        This doesn’t bode well for the US.   Look at history and every time the US government slaps Israel – something bad seems to happen — hurricanes, tornados, …    Hold on to your hats – its going to be a wild ride.
