When I started Worthy News, I founded it on this word in Luke's gospel:– “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” – Luke 21:36 Foundational to our ministry is the call to watch and pray, especially concerning world developments.
Yesterday, a retired Israeli general was quoted as saying that the Obama Administration stopped Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's plans to destroy Iran's nuclear program. Perhaps, Israel striking Iran would have set of a Middle East war – and started WW3. However, if Israel had succeeded then the head of the Shiite fundamentalist movement would have been cut off! The funding for Assad's government which is barely surviving economically would have been cut off! However, we find ourselves a year later, Iran closer to the bomb – and the situation in Syria even more cataclysmic!
In the minds of Muslims, whenever weakness is portrayed, it ultimately leads to radicalism. For example, in 2000, newly elected Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak was hailed by the world as a peacemaker as he withdrew Israeli forces from a buffer zone it created in Lebanon. However, Israel's withdrawal led to the rising of Hezbollah […]
Yesterday, President Obama stated from the White House lawn that his plan for a Syrian strike hasn't wavered, however he wants Congressional approval before he takes such action. Congress is on break until September 9th. This leaves the door for Congress to reject President's request – and if that were to take place it would […]
The Obama administration is peeved because sources within the Pentagon are leaking details of a Syrian planned operation. As one administration official put it, “who ever heard of this much talk before an attack? It's bizarre.” What's interesting about the statement is that there was no 'denial' of an attack, but that an attack is being planned, however there are those within the Pentagon trying to sabotage an Obama Administration strike!
Oftentimes, when I'm analyzing the news, I'm paying attention to the world markets, because you can get an indication of what may take place in the very near future. It's the 'love of money' by the ultra-ultra rich that shakes markets because they simply move markets in a matter of minutes, getting in and out of markets before everyone gets a chance to move.
As the war drums beat louder and louder, is there a possible prophetic significance to the timing of these events?
A few weeks ago, I informed our community that I believed we would be heading to war before September 4th-5th, which happens to be Rosh HaShannah, the Jewish New year. The reasoning for it was if Israel was going to do anything, it would have to happen before Winter began.
I just wanted you to take little glimpse of my garden project on our roof! With the concept of an earthbox, and since they don't ship earthboxes to Israel, I created a type of earthbox — the Negev Box — that maximizes the yields of plants while at the same time conserves water.
My wife wrote this earlier today and it was powerful so I thought I'd re-post it on my blog.
