God is not the author of fear. We are called to be courageous and an inspiration to a fallen world. We are not just who we are, but an extension of His Will as His Spirit dwells in us making us His holy temple. For that truth to be enriched in us, we must behave as holiness drives us. As holiness drapes our very being, our eyes begin to open to His wonderful Will as the fear of God gives us wisdom. That wisdom exposes the hypocrisy in our world. That hypocrisy starts with the United States.
President Obama's military leadership is scared, fearful, and mean spirited as Israel plans for all out war against her neighbors is being finalized. The United States is sending out messages that Israel cannot defeat her enemies, and that it is weak, and irrational. What the United States does not understand is that God is on the side of Israel, not the United States. What is weak and irrational to the world is strength and courage to God. The precious leader Obama is fearful Israel may wreck his economy and his reelection. God has other plans in mind like the redemption of mankind.
Something is going on. It may be a huge cyber warfare planned against Iran, or it could be military conflict. Always keep the Word of God as your guide. There have been many of wars that are not found in the Bible, but only a few have important Scriptural significance. I suspect the war of words from the United States is out of fear and the unknown. We, as Christians, do not want or root for war, but we are also wise enough to understand war is a part of our world, and at times it shows the Glory of God in a mighty way. One of those times may be before us.
A possible Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities may be able to hinder the Islamic Republic's atom ambitions but it will no destroy its nuclear program, General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Tuesday.
In a press briefing held in the pentagon, Dempsey and US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta were asked for their opinion of a recent media report suggesting Israel was closer than ever to undertaking a unilateral strike against Iran, and whether they believed such military action would be effective.
Dempsey told reporters that "Militarily, my assessment hasn't changed. And I want to make clear, I'm not privy to their planning. So what I'm telling you is based on what I know of their capabilities. And I may not know about all of their capabilities. But I think that it's a fair characterization to say that they could delay but not destroy Iran's nuclear capabilities."
Panetta, on his part, said that Israel has not informed the US of any immediate plans to that effect. "I've said this before, I'll say it now - I don't believe (Israel has) made a decision as to whether or not they will, they will go in and attack Iran at this time," he said.
