The past several months only bring the most fascinating headlines. Trouble in Egypt make the verses of Isaiah 19 leap off the page. And while economic conditions in Europe and the US hang by a thread of government supports, oil prices rise like a Middle East barometer foretelling more complications to come.
Like they say … It’s of biblical proportions!
Hey, take a look … Right there … Outside your window …

HEADLINE: After a pre-dawn strike, Syria naval base blast points to Israeli raid
Foreign forces destroyed advanced Russian anti-ship missiles in Syria last week, rebels said on Tuesday – a disclosure that appeared to point to an Israeli raid.
Qassem Saadeddine, spokesman for the Free Syrian Army’s Supreme Military Council, said a pre-dawn strike on Friday hit a Syrian navy barracks at Safira, near the port of Latakia. He said that the rebel forces’ intelligence network had identified newly supplied Yakhont missiles being stored there.
“It was not the FSA that targeted this,” Saadeddine told Reuters. “It is not an attack that was carried out by rebels.
“This attack was either by air raid or long-range missiles fired from boats in the Mediterranean,” he said.
HEADLINE: EUN calls on Hezbollah to end involvement in Syrian conflict
The UN Security Council called on Lebanese Hezbollah militants on Wednesday to end any involvement in the conflict in neighboring Syria, while Lebanon’s UN envoy pledged that his country would keep its borders open to Syrians fleeing the violence.
Hezbollah has sent thousands of fighters to help Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces combat rebels, according to Israeli and Western estimates. Israel is now boosting its forces on the Syrian border, where it believes Hezbollah is preparing for the day when it could fight Israel.
“The Security Council calls upon all Lebanese parties to recommit to Lebanon’s policy of disassociation, to stand united behind President Michel Sleiman in this regard and to step back from any involvement in the Syrian crisis,” the UN body said.
HEADLINE: Egypt pushes transition, naming prime minister; Saudis and UAE promises $8 billion, oppose Muslim Brotherhood
Egypt’s military-backed interim leader named a new prime minister and won $8 billion in promises of aid from wealthy Arab allies in the Gulf on Tuesday in moves aimed at stabilizing a political transition less than a week after the army deposed the Islamist president.
The armed forces warned political factions that “maneuvering” must not hold up its ambitious fast-track timetable for new elections next year. The sharp message underlined how strongly the military is shepherding the process, even as liberal reform movements that backed its removal of Mohammed Morsi complained that now they are not being consulted in decision-making.
The Muslim Brotherhood denounced the transition plan, vowing to continue its street protests until ousted Morsi, the country’s first freely elected president, is returned to power.
HEADLINE: Is Egypt heading for holy war?
Away from the troublespots, life for millions of Egyptians continues as normal. Egypt’s most fundamental problems are more economic than political.
But in a week when the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood called for “an uprising by the great people of Egypt against those trying to steal their revolution with tanks”, when dozens were killed in clashes between the army and Islamists and when the grand sheikh of al-Azhar warned of a civil war, an awkward question hovers in the air.
Is Egypt now prone to a new “holy war” fought by Islamists against the authorities?
HEADLINE: As in the days of Noah and Lot: White House to name new liaison to Jewish community, a LGBT activist and point man
Lawyer Matt Nosanchuck has served as LGBT pointman in Justice Department, was active in crafting Obama’s gay rights agenda
The White House is set to name Matt Nosanchuk, a lawyer who has been prominent in advancing the Obama administration’s gay rights policies, as its new full-time Jewish liaison.
From 2009 to 2012, Nosanchuk was a top staffer in the Justice Department’s civil rights division, where he helped shape the Obama administration’s response to a challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act. That challenge last month successfully nullified the act, extending federal rights to same-sex couples.
All of the above ‘smack of truth’ from a biblical perspective. The last headline is troubling because no God fearing person hates anyone, but at the same time cannot reject God’s leading. So really, WHAT is Kosher? If men or women of this era ‘burn with passion’ for the same sex … Then the biblical account that such would be a sign of the end times … is now here. So read this as an observation of what the Bible foretells in prophecy and then you can see why the organization that prepared the headline refers to the days of Noah. If a gay person is convicted by God’s will, then all the better. But a leader of the free world who calls himself Christian and then does what is contrary to Torah … well, you think about that … again, we are just pointing out the obvious.
All together … All these headlines ‘smack’ of end time truths. These headlines are fantastic … Amazing! And if you aren’t sure why we’d say this … it would be a good time to unravel the web of information the Bible holds inside.
But again, we are just making observations … you can look through the window and see for yourself!
