Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it, said Santayana. Let us never forget. Yom HaShoah — Holocaust Remembrance Day — begins tonight. How will you remember the Holocaust and teach your children? This year, let us all make time to remember the six million Jews that were murdered by the Nazis, including 1.5 million children. Let […]
(Central Israel) — With U.S.-Israeli relations at arguably their lowest point in history, Russia’s ties with Iran are suddenly growing much closer. Vladimir Putin on Monday “cleared the way for the delivery of sophisticated air defense systems to Iran,” and Iranian officials say the S-300 missile system could be “delivered his year.” This raises the disturbing question of […]
>> Join me for a discussion of Christian persecution in the Mideast during a special simulcast on April 19th. We are living in a time of unprecedented persecution of Christians in the Middle East and around the world. The Lord Jesus warned His disciples that they would be persecuted, and that persecution would intensify as the time […]
12 "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name (Jesus) under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”--Jesus is Salvation. Only way to heaven. . . Best decision you will ever make.
Iran, Obama, and Greece are three issues that I want to address today.First, there are reports that 15,000 Iranian elite soldiers are heading to Syria, and British and Qatari forces are too.Some say all of the before mentioned are already there.The head of Iranian special units is said to be in Damascus to help operate the war room.If this is true, then Isaiah 17 where Damascus is destroyed is a real possibility.Will a Syrian conflict which destroys Damascus be a hook that leads Russia into the Middle East?Russia will not be one of the first countries coming to the Middle East for God will have to hook them into coming into the northern parts of Israel.War preparations are heightened, and with any possibility of war there are many rumors.There are rumors major news outlets are preparing for the eventuality of an Iranian conflict, and Israeli government officials are laying the groundwork to evacuate Israelis if need be.We need to be in prayer for all those involved.If a war room is being prepared then Israel is the target, not Syrian dissidents.
Second, President Obama has backed up a Health and Human Services plan which will require Catholic charities and institutions to cover contraception.The Catholic Church is fighting the decree.The bigger issue here is the American government deciding ones belief system.Whether you agree with the Catholic stand or not, this type of autocratic power is just the beginning.In time, the world government will usher in the mark of the beast and religious institutions will be treated with the same if not worse disrespect.Sadly, many Christians are asleep because they do not want to see the truth and speak on it. Lukewarmness is destroying the witness of the Church, and only a few are willing to stand up to call it like it is.Be hot for the Gospel for God will reward you in great measure.
Lastly, as of this hour the Greek negotiations are still continuing.Whether an agreement is reached or not, the EU and the world is preparing for a Greek default.This is more managing the default than keeping it from happening.The Bible says the economic conditions will worsen through hyperinflation so as the Greek tragedy escalates look for central bankers to print more money to cover the very rich.Just as the Bible states, don't touch the oil or wine.There are many rich who are Christians, but there is a system where the powers of the rich will be protected while the rest of us will suffer.Don't be discouraged for our hope awaits us in Christ Jesus, and yet that hope is already here.
"When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, "Come[c]." I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, "A [d]quart of wheat for a [e]denarius, and three [f]quarts of barley for a [g]denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine."
The Israeli newspaper Haaretz is quoting an anonymous high-level Syrian official as saying on Monday that Kassam Salimani, commander of Iran's elite Quds Force, has arrived in Syria to aid in the country's crackdown against its would-be revolutionaries.
Meanwhile, the Saudi-backed Al Arabiya news channel claimed Tuesday in a separate report that 15,000 troops from Iran's Revolutionary Guard recently arrived in Syria to aid Syrian President Bashar Assad in his battle against rebel forces in Homs and throughout the country.
Haaretz claims that Salimani, who is in charge of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's external operations as commander of the Quds Force, has "taken up a spot in the war room" alongside Bashar Assad and his closest family members, including his brother Maher, his brother-in-law Assaf Shaukat, and his cousin Rami Makhlouf.
