Last week we posted a note saying WindowView would relaunch a whole newly formatted web site on July 25 … That is today!

UPDATE: with some bugs to fix and a few pages to edit and tighten up on the new site … the regular site is remaining online BUT the NEW site pages are all loaded and can be viewed at:

WindowView to Relaunch Next Week!

A new version of the WindowView site is planned for a launch online by July 25th, 2013.

If you visited before, all your bookmarks are still good! But the crisp new pages will give a vastly improved look and feel! If you visited before it’ll look like a new window! We are excited to finally be at the point of making this announcement!

For the past ten months, the WindowView.org web pages have been undergoing a process that will result in the following:

– New format for the entire web site
– New Introduction pages, with videos, Overview and a Thesis page for each main feature area
– New summary section entitled “Convergence”
– Better navigation features and reorganized menus
– Upgrades to HTML5 and use of CSS style sheets for more responsive web viewing
– New use of web based fonts
– Each page will now have a unique header photograph, some from far off, others from near by
– New video content, plus a video format that neither requires Flash or QuickTime
– Page dimensions that suit visitors on computers, hand held, or other mobile devices
– Attention to compatibility with most popular browsers – but we recommend using the most recent version of any browser for the best viewing experience. Our favorites include Safari and Chrome, followed by the newest Internet Explorer, with FireFox and Opera in the rear. The former browser types work best with the mp4 videos (the better quality format)

While all the above stated improvements will help make the ‘window’ more effective, some content is now offline in anticipation of content upgrades, to selected pages, that are planned for the months to come. In fact, recent developments give cause for some significant content upgrades that we hope will be incorporated in the weeks to come, sooner, as opposed to later this year.

Finally, an update to the comment feature is included in this update. We hope visitors will write notes and provide feedback.

July 10 in a Hot Hot Political State of Conflicted Peoples

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!

Reflections of ISAIAH 19 in Egypt TODAY

Read what Isaiah says here and look at the headlines below!

The burden against Egypt.
Behold, the Lord rides on a swift cloud, And will come into Egypt; The idols of Egypt will totter at His presence, And the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst. “I will set Egyptians against Egyptians; Everyone will fight against his brother, And everyone against his neighbor, City against city, kingdom against kingdom. The spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst; I will destroy their counsel, And they will consult the idols and the charmers, The mediums and the sorcerers. And the Egyptians I will give Into the hand of a cruel master, And a fierce king will rule over them,” Says the Lord, the Lord of hosts. (Isaiah 19:1-4 NKJV)

HEADLINE: Post-Coup Violence Spreads In Egypt

Morsi supporters protest near Republican Guard headquarters in Cairo, where Morsi is under house arrest.

Two days after Egypt’s military replaced the country’s president, it sent soldiers into the streets to quell demonstrations, as a week of tensions between Islamists and the military transformed into deadly confrontations that heightened some Egyptians’ fears of civil war.

Demonstrations turned bloody Friday as hundreds of thousands of Muslim Brotherhood supporters turned out to protest this week’s military-led ouster of President Mohammed Morsi. Muslim Brotherhood officials said police opened fire on protesters in the Cairo suburb where Mr. Morsi and 12 aides were being held under house arrest, killing five people. The military denied those allegations.

Later in the day, armored personnel carriers arrived on the October 6 bridge, near Tahrir Square, to restore order after rival camps clashed with rocks, fireworks and, according to several witnesses, gunfire from automatic weapons.

HEADLINE: Egypt: A nation divided

Members of the Muslim Brotherhood and supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy clash with riot police during the swearing in ceremony of Adly Mansour as interim president in Cairo on Thursday, July 4

Three days after a coup that overthrew the nation’s first democratically elected president, Egypt is a nation divided over who should lead the country and which government reflects the democratic will of the people.

One side is fighting for the reinstatement of Mohamed Morsy, who the military forced from office Wednesday. The other applauds the military and is fighting to keep out Morsy over allegations his government was getting closer to autocratic rule.

Each side accuses the other of thwarting democracy. By the thousands, Egyptians have filled public squares nationwide, at times confronting one another with deadly violence.

Each side was trying to present a unified front.

The Egyptian Armed Forces, responding to “rumors and lies,” said on its Facebook page that there was no division among its ranks over its decision to back “the demands of the Egyptian people” over the government.

“These rumors are completely and utterly untrue,” it said.

HEADLINE: Egypt: Coptic Christian priest shot dead

A Coptic Christian priest in Egypt’s Northern Sinai has been shot dead, in what could be the first sectarian attack since the military overthrow of Islamist Mohammed Morsi.

The priest, Mina Aboud Sharween, was attacked in the early afternoon while walking in the Masaeed area in El Arish.

The shooting in the coastal city was one of several attacks believed to be by Islamist insurgents that included firing at four military checkpoints in the region, the sources said.

Saturday’s attacks on checkpoints took place in al-Mahajer and al-Safaa in Rafah, as well as Sheikh Zuwaid and al-Kharouba.

A similar comparison can be made with what Isaiah says about Syria and continued events there.

These are remarkable times!
