What could have been…

Yesterday, a retired Israeli general was quoted saying the Obama Administration stopped Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's plans to destroy Iran's nuclear program. Perhaps, if Israel struck Iran it would have set of a Middle East war – and started WW3. However, what if Israel succeeded in destroying Iran's nuclear program?  We would be sitting here a year later with the head of the Shiite fundamentalist movement cut off!  Assad government may have collapsed as its barely surviving economically now — and is on life support from its Iranian friends.

Sadly, we find ourselves a year later, Iran closer to the bomb – and the situation in Syria even more cataclysmic!

Nevertheless, I believe the events unfolding now, are completely lining up with prophecy.

In presenting his case before Congress, the Obama administration is using Israel as part of his argument for why the U.S. should strike Syria! The thought of using Israel as part of the administration's reasoning has got every Israeli politician tight lipped – because they know how this can quickly backlash against them!

Over the weekend, they just watched how the President turned against his own Secretary of State!

Last Friday night, John Kerry presented his case before the American people – one of his most passionate speeches, and a day later Obama without consulting his Cabinet – decides the U.S. doesn't need to take action immediately, but rather he needed to take his case before Congress!  Politically, Kerry just had his legs cut out from underneath him!

In trying to maintain dignity, Kerry once again presented his case before a Senate committee yesterday – however Kerry stumbled and said and later retracted the idea of U.S. Troops being on the ground in Syria! I always watch what politicians say – and later retract – because what they first said is probably true, and once they realize the political ramifications of their statements – they quickly back peddle and hide from the political fallout of their words!

Meanwhile, Senator John McCain came out of his private meeting with the U.S. President Obama supportive of the President's measures knowing that the administration plans to "upgrade the capabilities" of the rebel Free Syrian Army (FSA).

While the FSA has a strong moderate Muslim contingency, the overall Syrian rebel factions are overwhelmingly jihadists! They are not interested in a “Free Syria”, but a fundamental Islamic state from which to launch attacks against the Great Satan – the United States, and the Little Satan – Israel!

The Syrians are so enraged by the jihadists, that in a poll conducted by NATO this past June showed over 70% of Syrians want Assad in power! Source: World Tribune ( http://www.worldtribune.com/2013/05/31/nato-data-assad-winning-the-war-for-syrians-hearts-and-minds/ )

Do the Syrians really want Assad in power? No, but compared to the reality of fundamental Islamists running the country – they'd rather have Assad!

One of the fundamental groups operating in the region is The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). ISIL is a merged al-Qaeda group that operates in Syria and Iraq so radical that it believes the Muslim Brotherhood is apostate!

ISIL spokesman, Abu Muhammad al 'Adnani al Shami, denounced the Muslim brotherhood over the weekend and called on the Islamic group to repent and “turn back from the religion of democracy.” In a speech released this weekend, Al Shami denounced the armies of Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia as "armies of apostasy and disbelief." "These armies were only created to protect the tyrants, defend them and steady their thrones," al Shami continued. The ISIL spokesman specifically denounced the Egyptian army for defending "the usury banks and the whorehouses" as well as "the Jews, the Copts and the Christians," among other offenses.

Al Shami also asked whether "any sane person [can] say that it is not permissible to fight this army, even if it were seen as Muslim?"

With regard to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, al Shami said the group was simply "a secular party with an Islamic garb, and they are more evil and cunning than the secularists." Al Shami further slammed the Muslim Brotherhood for being "a party that, if gaining the throne required kneeling before Satan, they would do it without hesitation."

Yesterday, the ISIL beheaded 24 Syrian passengers on a bus traveling from Tartus to Ras al-Ain in northwest Syria among them a mother and her 40 day old infant. These are not just Islamics – these are the radical of radicals that put to shame even radical Islamic groups like the Muslim brotherhood!

As thousands of al-Qaeda fighters stand ready and willing to invade Syria as soon as the U.S. Strikes, (Source: http://kleinonline.wnd.com/2013/08/30/al-qaida-ready-to-storm-into-syria-if-u-s-strikes-thousands-of-islamic-fighters-mobilizing-on-border/ ) we very well may see the rise of an ultra Islamic state on the border of Israel – all with the help of Uncle Sam's cruise missiles and its Air Force!

It's no wonder, that the British Intelligence community assessed the situation in Syria and deemed that al Qaeda and other jihadists in Syria have become “the most worrying emerging terrorist threat to the UK and the West.” (Source: CNS News – http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/uk-intel-al-qaeda-and-jihadists-syria-most-worrying-emerging ) They didn't think Assad was the biggest threat to the West – it was the jihadists in Syria!

So why do I think this may line up with prophecy? Well, President Obama is using Israel as part of its reasoning to deal with Assad – with pro-Israel lobbying groups supporting the President's plan of striking Syria. So what happens when this operation goes terribly wrong? Who do you suppose will be blamed? The President will say, “Well, we had to support our ally “Israel” and look what happened!”

Honestly, when was the last time you heard the President accept responsibility for a bad decision? Someone has to take the blame! And before you know it, the Jews will be responsible!

But this is prophetic – the rise of antisemitism is coming! You see the Bible says in Jeremiah 16:14-16, "Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when it shall no longer be said, 'As the LORD lives who brought up the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt,' but 'As the LORD lives who brought up the people of Israel out of the north country and out of all the countries where he had driven them.' For I will bring them back to their own land that I gave to their fathers. "Behold, I am sending for many fishers, declares the LORD, and they shall catch them. And afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the clefts of the rocks."

The times of the fisherman are ending – and soon the hunters will drive the Jewish people back to their homeland! If you think you're seeing the rise of antisemitism now throughout Europe and the rest of the world – just wait till the Jews are blamed for the fiasco in Syria!

Until next time,

George

  1. As we are anxiously waiting to know whether US will strike Syria or not, I like to share with my fellow Christians, Israel's hope and our hope is not upon United States, nor upon Britain, nor any NATO country. Our hope is upon God only. God had a covenant with Abraham and his descendents. HE said HE will defend Jerusalem. According to prophecy, at the most dangerous moment when all Israel's enemies surround her, Messiah will come and deliver Israel. All Israel will recognize the Messiah they crucified, they shall repent and return to the Lord. Our prayer is that the Kingdom of God be established on earth as it is in heavens. Aren't we all witnessing the lawlessness in this world had reached to such a point, that in our spirit we groaned," Oh! Lord, Come!" It is the prayer of the saints that hasten and usher in HIS kingdom.

  2. Lena, I agree ! With all the Military might in the world I only place my Trust in The Lord and Fear Not ! I know He will take care of us and when my time is done I will be in His Presents Praising all the days long !

  3. I had shared in recent weeks that Obama was deliberately ignoring the real facts on the ground with regard to the radicalized factions fighting Assad's regime.

    Saudi Arabia is the arm of support for Al Qaeda, and with the various proxies playing a hand in this conflict, this deliberately blurs the lines regarding what forces are truly legitimate in their fight against Assad.

    Assad has been repeatedly and progressively weakened, one can only guess at what his true capabilities are. I suspect that the Russians have a better assessment of this than anyone, since they are supplying various arms and materiel support to Assad's military.

    I had also stated at the same time, that I was concerned Obama was essentially using the events of this gassing to perpetrate a "false flag" action, which functionally betrays Israel within the process of painting a "big picture" he is attempting to depict and "sell" to the rest of the world.

    A photograph that is original and unretouched, for example, by such rendering technology as Photoshop, is a true representation or portrayal of facts as they are seen at the moment that image is captured.

    In contrast (no pun intended!), a depiction is taking that same image and rendering it to portray something in part or completely different that what is actually portrayed in the original source item.

    That is politically-classic "spin-doctoring" that is presently in use to ramp up the case to attack Syria by exaggerating certain elements, and cleverly concealing others. As one acquainted with this technology, there are "layers" that can be toggled on or off to render varying renditions of the same image.

    I do believe it is moments such as these that fervent prayers to the Lord have effectively brought the Truth to light, despite such concerted efforts to do otherwise.

    Such was the case of Elisha in 2 Kings 6:8-13. The King of Aram, while consulting with his servants, was defeated more than once, despite secret plans made by him. He thought a spy was betraying him, however the real story was mentioned in verse 12:

    One of his servants replied, “It’s not that, my lord, king. Rather, Elisha, the prophet who is in Isra’el, tells the king of Isra’el the words you speak privately in your own bedroom!”

    If that is the case in this king's bedroom, you can take ample stock in the Word of the Lord that what is secretly plotted in the State Room is known equally well.

    That redoubles our mandate to pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6) and Isra'el also.

    In contrast, the Adversary- AKA the Destroyer and Murderer is being fully unmasked, and as his work ramps up while the days draw closer to his end, the G-d of Isra'el and the Source of Life is being revealed in glory and majesty to His people and to those who will receive Him.

    Also, in reading other comments below, Scripture records this nugget of Truth regarding the military might of nations, vs. the hand and sovereign will of the Father:

    Psalm 33:16-22 – Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

    16 A king is not saved by the size of his army,
    a strong man not delivered by his great strength.

    17 To rely on a horse for safety is vain,
    nor does its great power assure escape.

    18 But Adonai’s eyes watch over those who fear him,
    over those who wait for his grace

    19 to rescue them from death
    and keep them alive in famine.

    This is to be our response, as King David, a man of great military might understood:

    20 We are waiting for Adonai;
    he is our help and shield.

    21 For in him our hearts rejoice,
    because we trust in his holy name.

    22 May your mercy, Adonai, be over us,
    because we put our hope in you.

    Amein!
