Day of decision is arriving quickly, my friends. Three topics will be discussed, and they are the divisions of prophecy. We will first tackle Israel, which is the center of all prophecy. Next, the gentile nations and the empire which will bring the Antichrist, the European Union (EU) will be discussed today. Lastly, we will explain the state of the church and our own individual state as Christians.
First, the United States not only threw Israel under the bus, but the whole world. In a surprising move, Obama has decided to allow Iran to build a nuclear weapon, and Israel has become the enemy of the world. Reports are beginning to be leaked which show an angry Israeli leadership who is showing their great displeasure with President Obama. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is speaking out stating that the relationship between the United States and Israel has never been worse. However, much of the American Jewish vote will still be solidly behind Obama as he sets up the destruction of Israel. Israeli generals are reporting that Netanyahu is close to ordering a strike on Iran. According to Ezekiel, it will be Iran, Russia, Turkey, Sudan, and Libya which will strike Israel in the last days, which will bring a revival not only to Israel but to many people in the world. Javier Solana has been very busy leaking out details about the Middle East situation, which has perked my interest. He has talked more about the implosion in the Middle East than the current EU Foreign Minister Catherine Ashton. Not to be left out, in Daniel 11:33-45, Egypt will be an enemy of Israel and the West, and it is being reported Egypt has shut off a gas pipeline which is 40% of Israel's energy. The pre-war squeeze seems to be happening, and of all people, Javier Solana is speaking on this coming implosion. I am surer of war in the Middle East today than I ever have been. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the world, and this will come when Jesus comes back.
Second, Spain is imploding, the Dutch have thrown out their government, France is electing a skeptical Socialist as its President, the EU is trying to force Germany to accept Eurobonds, and Italy is always on the cliff of no return. All of the news out of the EU shows the leaderless EU is blowing up before our very eyes. They need a leader, and there is call for a super minister of the EU. I still believe the super minister, or coming Antichrist, will hold the position of EU Foreign Minister. If we are close to the time of the end, watch Catherine Ashton to be forced out, and someone from the EU, not a leader of a current country because the Antichrist is a little horn or someone of somewhat insignificance at the beginning, to take her place. It must be the EU Foreign Minister in my mind because it will be a foreign policy crisis in Israel that brings the EU Antichrist to power. A weak American President and a Republican who may not be much better puts this possibility high to happening sooner rather than later. Experts who are not afraid to tell the truth tell us an EU economic implosion is close to being imminent. Look for a horrific economic decline as well as a prophetic Middle East war as soon as this summer. Also, Obama will blame the President for the economic turmoil. Time will tell.
Lastly, the church is spiritually corrupt. The true church, which is the bride of Christ, must be prepared for the events for mentioned. The harlot organized church tells itself it must sleep with the world to get things done, and the spiritual fornication is destroying souls. Woe for those who lead churches which are counted as the harlot. Their judgment will be worse than they can imagine, and it would be better if those leaders would not have been born than go to hell. I hope and pray you know a Bible-believing group. When all these things come to pass, I probably will not be able to talk to you when these things take place for the Satanic system will control all of the internet. Be in the Word, prepare now, the day of decision may already be upon us, and if not soon. Time will tell.
"For it is written, "AS I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL GIVE PRAISE TO GOD."
The Israeli Defense Forces [IDF] are prepared and ready to strike Iran's nuclear facilities, Chief of Staff Benny Gantz told the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper in an interview published Sunday.
"In principle, we are ready to act," the army chief revealed just ahead of Israel's upcoming Independence Day, reports Ynet.com.
This year, Israel's Independence Day is celebrated on April 26. The Declaration of the Establishment of State of Israel was made on May 14, 1948, expressing the declaration to be "by virtue of our natural and historic right and on the strength of the resolution of the United Nations General Assembly." The new state was quickly recognized by the Soviet Union and the United States, as well as other countries, but not by the surrounding Arab states, which quickly declared war.
In the special pre-holiday interview with Yedioth Ahronoth, Gantz emphasized that 2012 was going to be "a critical year" in the heated Israel-Iran crisis.
"The State of Israel believes that nuclear arms in Iran's possession are a very bad thing, which the world should stop and Israel should stop. We are preparing our plan accordingly."
The army chief also addressed the likelihood of a broader regional war breaking out in the near future: "Our intelligence assessment asserts that given the strategic reality and instability in the region, the chance of deteriorating to a war is higher than in the past. There are no indications of war, but the chances of the situation deteriorating into one are higher than in the past."

Our equity Bloomberg screens are bright red, as equity markets sell off across the globe. Several reasons are contributing to the market selloff: 1) several firms in Asia posted weaker-than-expected earnings, 2) worries that Europe's debt crisis still threatens global growth, 3) the French elections, and 4) a breakdown of budget talks in the Netherlands.
Overnight, in Asia, the MSCI Asia Pacific Index fell 0.5%. The worst-performing regional markets were the Hang Seng and the Indian Sensex, which both finished 1.8% lower. The Shanghai Composite rounded out the bottom three, falling 0.8%. Japan's Nikkei lost 0.2%, while the Korean Kospi fell 0.1%.

In bondland, Treasuries are bid as investors flock to their safety. The 10-year and long bond yields are both down 4bp, to 1.96% and 3.08%, respectively. In Europe, the collapse of the budget talks in the Netherlands is driving yields 7bp higher on the 10-year, to 2.38%.

Just like Treasuries, the dollar is benefiting from its safe-haven status. The DXY index is up 0.3%. The stronger dollar is driving commodity prices lower. WTI crude oil is 77 cents lower, to $103.11 a barrel, and gold is down $9.28 an ounce, to $1,633.53.
