Media Don’t Get It: Rockets Essentially Kill Gazans

Media So Insensitive As to Look Like Fools The video below is an example how a news commentator clearly and completely misses the point.  So much so, one has to wonder if this isn’t subtle anti-Semitism … after all, the rockets fly overhead in the interview …

What Is the Full Story Here! The media at large play up what we agree is a sad loss of innocent people in Gaza BUT without reporting the real and full tragedy … the stupidity of hatred and the rocketeers themselves.  Pure hatred sends the rockets and the defense of Israel is slanted as a culprit.  Hard to believe that the media don’t realize that thinking people are shocked by the lack of real reporting … but then sensationalism sells more than truth!

 

Please pray the fighting stops … but then again since the chronology of future biblical events leads to a very different resolution of the fighting, no one here is surprised by the hatred in the ranks of Hamas  (whose days are numbered).

Update: July 27 US President appeals to Israel to stop shooting at Gaza. Even during cease fire Hamas shoots off hundreds of rockets. Israel resumes responding and ends the unilateral cease fire, because the rockets keep coming. So we say: “Obama you have got to be kidding! If someone kept shelling the US, what would you do?”

Rocket Town

We recently came across a video that represents what it is really like in Israel where rockets land.

This report filmed in 2012 tells a story of deaths and injuries so often left unreported while the world is shown images of people in Gaza suffering from Israel’s responses.  Bottom line is no one should have to suffer rockets or bombs … but many times Israel’s retaliations end up as reports of aggression and the media do not balance the reporting.

VIDEO HERE  ( <– link )

The best we can do is to ask you to watch this video and realize the entire exchange of weapons is needless … and yet this is a reflection of something deeper and the conflict will keep going until God’s hand ends the unrest.

Also, while many rockets are now being intercepted by Israel’s ‘Iron Dome,’ the cost of antimissile missiles is a drain on Israel’s economy and the sirens still blast alerts that require citizens to dash to bomb shelters.  The trauma of interrupting one’s daily routine, multiple times a day, is an emotional wound suffered across the populace att large.

Signs of Tribulation Coming in Proximity to Today

From the 1973 edition of Hal Lindsey’s book (There’s A New World Coming) we find the following list of signs of these times leading to the biblical period known as the tribulation—a.k.a. Great Tribulation, Time of Jacob’s Trouble, Day of the Lord. After the following block quote, we can make a few added comments to update this list … but please note how remarkable this listing truly is, from from over forty years ago, in light of recent events from the year 2000 to the present!

“Many of these predicted signs are amplified in various chapters of the Book of Revelation. Here I’m simply going to list them to get them focused in our minds as a group.

1. The return of the dispersed Jews to Israel to become a nation again in 1948.
2. The Jews’ recapture of the Old City of Jerusalem in the 1967 Arab-Israeli War.
3. The rise of Russia as a powerful nation and enemy of Israel.
4. The Arab confederation against the new State of Israel.
5. The rise of a military power in the Orient that can field an army of 200 million soldiers. (Red China alone boasts that she has this number of troops!)
6. The revival of the old Roman Empire in the form of a ten-nation confederacy.
(I believe the European Common Market is ultimately going to be this power.)
7. The revival of the dark occultic practices of ancient Babylon.
8. The unprecedented turn to drugs.
9. The increase of international revolution.
10. The increase of wars.
11. The increase of earthquakes.
12. The increase of famines through the population explosion.
13. The coming of plagues.
14. The increase of pollution.
15. The departure of many Christian churches from the historic truths of Clnistianity.
16. The move toward one-world religion.
17. The move toward a one-world government.
18. The decline of the United States as a major world power.
19. The increase in lawlessness.
20. The decline of the family unit.”

For number 3 it seems almost prophetic in its own right that Russia during 1973 was far different as the USSR, but even today the Russia we see is even now still trending against Israel.

We are left uncertain about point 5 because the biblical text may not be speaking of a literal human army from China, but all the same, today China factors into a shifting global power structure that plays right into point number 18.

For 6, we note that many followed this prediction about Europe, but the biblical text speaks of the world, not just a localized block of nations. So, stay tuned, global trade and regional powers across the globe may well be the ten kingdoms spoken of in the scriptural text and that may parallel a global empire like that of ancient Rome.

Point 8, both pharmaceuticals, extensive use of opioids for pain relief and addictions of same, as well as legalization and broad use of marijuana—aside from continued heroin and crack usage … all this exists today well above the levels of abuse in 1973.

Climate change, no matter the source or reason, now brings increasing floods and droughts, all of which damage the global harvests (point 12).

Point 15, the recent acceptance of behaviors and changes in church policies across many denominations speaks of non-biblical traits that compromise the faith and the community within.

We could write more about the listing above, but the one added point we will contribute follows:

The last book in the Bible also speaks of souls and buying, selling, and thus owning. Like slavery before, today we see human trafficking and people fleeing tyranny and strife at a price, only to find they are indentured and captive to overlords and insensitive handlers. What is this world that souls are so abused?

How do you see this list? Might these be signs of a world so wrapped in itself as to bring us to the threshold of future biblical events. And if a chronology of events is already known from Scripture, would it not be wise to consider and discern the relevance of what is described there … now!

Hal Lindsey on the Rapture

“It’s important to note that the Church has been the main ·theme of the Revelation until Chapter 4. Starting with this chapter, the Church isn’t seen on earth again until Chapter 19, where we suddenly find it returning to earth with Christ as He comes to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

The big question is: ” Where is the Church during the earthly devastation described in Chapters 6 through 19, and how did it get wherever it is?”

CONSPICUOUS BY ITS ABSENCE

As I said earlier, the Church is mentioned nineteen times in the first three chapters of the Book of Revelation and isn’t mentioned once. as being on earth from Chapters 4 through 19! And it’s in these chapters that the great outpouring of God’s wrath is described in detail!

It’s also very interesting that in Chapters 2 and 3 we read ” He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” repeated seven times, while in Chapter 13 we see: ” If anyone has an ear, let him hear.” This is the same warning except that the church is left out! It seems unthinkable that God would omit mention of the Church if it were still on earth during these devastating judgments.”

There’s a New World Coming, 1973, page 61

WHAT KIND OF EAR DO WE HAVE TODAY

Taking a hint from Mr. Lindsey, the data and evidence in the text tells us something ‘key’ if we pay attention. The book published in the 1970s was a run away best seller and led many a reader through the evidence and implications of prophetic Scripture. Today the news fits the examples of his writings four decades ago. As the moral landscape changes in the world today, those who remain behind are a growing proportion of the global population. What will happen to you on the day believers are lifted into the heavens?

Satan on Campus: Harvard to Host “Black Mass”

From the article entitled:

SATAN AND MAN AT HARVARD

Coming Monday: Devil worship as an educational experience.

“Plans for a Satanic black mass Monday evening in Memorial Hall at Harvard University recall conservative icon William Buckley’s famous God and Man at Yale, which in 1951 chastised his Ivy League school for abandoning its Christian roots. His critique applied to nearly all of America’s most prestigious, historically Protestant academies that shed their church affiliations in favor of a brash secularism.

“What would Buckley, a devout Catholic, say today about a black mass at Harvard, the nation’s oldest university and founded by the Puritans to train Calvinist clergy?

“The Catholic Archdiocese of Boston expressed its “deep sadness and strong opposition to the plan to stage a ‘black mass’ on the campus of Harvard University in Cambridge.” Certainly Buckley would be sad too but not too surprised. He diagnosed the spiritual and intellectual trajectory over 60 years ago.

“A statement from Harvard Extension School carefully explains that “an independent student organization,” the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club, will host a “controversial student event involving a historical reenactment of a black mass ceremony that has a narrator providing historical context and background.” ‘

And we wonder how much money is spent on an academic year at an Ivy League institution to then see the sadest of events emerge on campus.

Is glorifying satan a sign of these times?  The letter to the seventh church, as presented in the Book of Revelation, reveals that today we live an an age of apostasy … and with Harvard’s help, the point is well made and we have arrived at that latter day–Today.

MORE WAR CLOUDS GATHER OVER TENSE MIDDLE EAST

April 1 Release

By David Dolan

Armed attacks upon the world’s only Jewish state escalated sharply during March, coming from both the northern and southern border regions. For the first time in over 40 years, Israeli air force jets struck several Syrian Army military positions after four Israeli soldiers, including a battalion deputy commander, were wounded in a border attack that the IDF said was launched by Syrian soldiers stationed on the tense Golan Heights. One week later, two Syrian infiltrators were shot and wounded as they tried to penetrate the Golan border fence.

Earlier in the month in the south, Iranian-backed Palestinian Muslim terrorists once again fired nearly 100 rockets at Israeli civilian communities near the Gaza Strip. One landed just outside of a library in the often attacked Israeli town of S’derot. It was the largest barrage of rockets to be fired in the same timeframe since Israel fought a six day battle with the radical Hamas movement in November 2012.

The Israeli Air Force was quickly ordered into action, hitting a number of rocket shooting positions and other targets connected to the Islamic Jihad group, which said it carried out at least most of the rocket assaults. As they have done several times before as rocket attacks escalated over the past year, Israeli government officials warned that a major military incursion into the small Palestinian coastal zone might become necessary if the shootings continued, prompting the Gaza Strip’s Hamas rulers to put at least a temporary halt to the sustained firings.

As fierce fighting continued to envelop neighboring Syria, the embattled Assad regime made more gains against its multifaceted Sunni Arab Muslim opponents during the month, recapturing a strategic town near the border with Lebanon with the help of Iran’s surrogate Shiite Lebanese Hizbullah militia force. This came as the regime continued to drag its feet on commitments made to the United Nations last year to hand over all of its huge chemical weapons arsenal to international control and destruction. Israeli leaders are said to be worried that the chemical weapons deal may fall entirely apart in the coming weeks and months, since Syria’s main big power ally, Russia, is now at loggerheads with much of the world after Vladimir Putin invaded portions of the country of Georgia during March.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met once again with American President Barrack Obama during the month in Washington, with discussions reportedly focusing on faltering peace talks with the Palestinian Authority, the war in Syria and Iran’s nuclear program. The meetings came just a couple weeks before a deadline set by the PA last summer for suspending the talks if they did not make any tangible progress by the end of March. Meanwhile the Israeli government decided to postpone the fourth and final round of Palestinian prisoner releases that was due to be held on March 29. The four stage release was agreed upon last year as part of the peace talk’s resumption, prompting outrage from Palestinian leader who issued more threats that a new terrorist attrition war may be on the horizon if the release did not take place.

Meanwhile PA leader Mahmoud Abbas reiterated his hard line position that the Palestinians will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state—a basic requirement spelled out by Israeli leaders for many years if there is to be a final peaceful resolution of this portion of the wider Arab-Muslim conflict, which has morphed in recent decades into a struggle with non-Arab Iran and its allies. Further sinking the always extremely slim prospects that an American-brokered peace treaty could be ironed out sometime this year, the Arab League subsequently formally endorsed the PA’s rejectionist stand.

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon got into more hot water during March after he delivered a speech in which he termed President Obama’s response to the so-called “Arab Spring” regional upheaval, and the recent Russian invasion of Crimea, as “feeble.” He noted that widely perceived growing American weakness in the region can only spell ill for Israel. This came as Egypt’s military leaders finalized a major arms deal with Moscow that will provide the large Arab country with some of Russia’s most advances weapons systems, said media reports from Cairo.

Senior Iranian government leaders praised their Palestinian allies for lashing out at Israel. Defense Minister General Hossein Dehqan said that Iranian weapons shipments, training and financial aid had left Palestinian militiamen in the Gaza Strip “a thousand times more powerful than they were before.” This came as the country’s Foreign Minister predicted that international talks to curb the regime’s rogue nuclear production will fail to reach that goal.

NO PEACE in MAY …

The following excerpts from news posted at Watch.org are very telling … with respect that no peace pact will come to Israel in March, or April, or May … and frankly, those who have read the Scriptures know what to look for … we are told there the peace pact will be a seven year covenant in a time when Israel lives without walls … NO PEACE, NO WAY, until then.  Also of interest is Putin’s apparent desire to grater power and with access to strategic territories taht will only make it easier to move forces to the south … Gog and Magog … is that it?

Stay tuned, because if you really think about it, humanity is not about living in peace, stewardship, or extending the prospects for life on earth … why?  Because everyone has some sort of material or national agenda … and that is why we say information from both science and scripture have relevance … so visit WindowView for more on that, but for now … WHAT do the following headlines tell you!

Susan Rice to Netanyahu: Only two-state solution can bring peace with Palestinians

Not reaching a nuclear agreement with Iran is preferable to signing a bad accord, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Wednesday, soon after meeting with visiting US National Security Advisor Susan Rice.  Rice arrived in the country earlier in the day as part of a high-level US delegation. Members of the delegation came to consult with their Israeli counterparts about Iran and other strategic issues prior to another round of talks between the P5+1 and Iran in Vienna next week, and as work went on to formulate a final nuclear deal. Following the Rice meeting – a meeting the Prime Minister’s Office was not willing to discuss – Netanyahu met with a delegation from the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF). The brief statement issued about that meeting made the gist of Netanyahu’s message to Rice clear.

Meeting Abbas, Rice outlines ‘constructive’ path forward for peace with Israel

Any power-sharing Palestinian government must recognize the state of Israel, renounce violence and adhere to previous agreements, whether it includes Hamas or not, US National Security Advisor Susan Rice told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas during their meeting in Ramallah on Thursday.  According to the White House, Rice made “clear… the principles that must guide a Palestinian government in order for it to play a constructive role in achieving peace and building an independent Palestinian state.”

“She reiterated US policy that any Palestinian government must unambiguously and explicitly commit to nonviolence, recognition of the State of Israel, and acceptance of previous agreements and obligations between the parties,” the White House said in a statement after the meeting.

US envoy Indyk insists peace process not dead

Washington’s top negotiator criticizes both sides for failed talks, saying Netanyahu was ‘flexible’ despite approving settlements.  While delivering scathing condemnations of the behavior of both sides, Washington’s chief negotiator in the recent Israeli-Palestinian talks denied Thursday that the peace process was over.  In his most revealing comments since the breakdown of talks, Ambassador Martin Indyk recounted Thursday evening how, after six months of productive direct negotiations, Palestinian leaders “shut down” and singled out settlement activity as a major – but not the sole – factor.

“We have passed the nine-month marker for these negotiations, and for the time being the talks have been suspended,” Indyk said, addressing the Washington Institute for Near East Policy’s Weinberg Founders Conference in Washington DC. “Some have said this process is over. But that is not correct. As my little story testifies. As you all know well— in the Middle East, it’s never over.”

Roads blocked, schools closed as freak rains flood country, flash floods from Eilat to the Dead Sea

Unseasonable storm wreaks havoc in south; flash floods reported from Eilat to Dead Sea.  Schools near the Dead Sea were shut and several roads in the area were blocked by authorities Thursday morning as a rare tropical storm dumped rain across the country causing flash floods and wreaking havoc in the south of the country.  Wednesday night and Thursday morning saw heavy rains and thunderstorms across the country, a rare occurrence so late into the spring. The rain brought dry riverbeds to life, flooding low-lying areas, especially in the Judean Desert and Negev in the south of the country. By Thursday morning the city of Arad reported 44 millimeters of rain had fallen from the storm, 40 times the average for this time of year, according to the Israel Meteorological Service. Jerusalem saw 32 millimeters, Beersheba 24 millimeters and Ra’anana 45 millimeters. Tel Aviv, however, only saw 15 millimeters.

Putin oversees Russian Nuclear forces exercise

President Vladimir Putin on Thursday oversaw a military exercise involving Russia’s nuclear forces amid escalating tensions over Ukraine.  While Putin said the exercise had been planned back in November, it comes as relations between Russia and the West have plunged to their lowest point since the Cold War over Ukraine.  Putin, speaking from the Defense Ministry’s headquarters where he oversaw the exercise along with leaders of several ex-Soviet nations which are members of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, said that the maneuvers involved the military across the entire Russian territory, including the nation’s nuclear forces.  Russian news wires said that the exercises simulated dealing a massive retaliatory nuclear strike in response to an enemy attack. The description of the exercise is unusually blunt, reflecting tensions with the West running high over Ukraine.

Putin says Russian troops pull back from Ukraine border

Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed Wednesday that his military had pulled back from the Ukrainian border — but a top Pentagon official told Fox News that the U.S. military had not seen any changes in the deployment of Russian forces.  Putin also urged pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine to postpone Sunday’s referendum on secession. Putin said Russian troops had pulled back to training grounds and locations for “regular exercises,” but didn’t specify whether those locations were in areas near Ukraine.

Putin Warns of Growing Militant Nationalism, Nazi Ideology in Europe

NATO’s top military commander in Europe said on Monday he no longer thought regular Russian troops would enter eastern Ukraine, predicting Moscow could achieve its goals through the unconventional forces stirring up trouble there.  U.S. air force Gen. Philip Breedlove said it was a completely false Russian narrative that it was only Ukrainians rebelling in the east of their country, saying it was clear that special forces troops from Russia were operating there as they did in Crimea before its annexation.  “Remember that [Russian President Vladimir] Putin denied their presence and now he has admitted to their presence in Crimea. The same thing will come out of Ukraine as time rolls out,” he told a military and diplomatic audience in Ottawa.

Pew Global Survey: Public Backs Putin, Crimea’s Secession, Putin is overwhelmingly popular

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s handling of the crisis in Ukraine has met with considerable opposition in Western nations and much of the international community, as well as in Ukraine itself, but Russians have largely rallied around their leader. Putin is overwhelmingly popular, and Russian national pride appears to be on the rise. In fact, a plurality thinks Putin’s handling of the crisis has improved Russia’s international stature.  A large majority of Russians believe the recent referendum in Crimea was free and fair, and that Kyiv (Kiev) should accept the results and allow Crimea to join Russia. Crimea is only one of Russia’s territorial grievances, and as they have in previous surveys, a majority of Russians say they believe there are parts of neighboring countries that really belong to Russia.  Meanwhile, tensions with the West have led to a dramatic spike in negative views about the U.S. and the European Union. Similarly, both U.S. President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are held in low regard.

How Do You Respond to Isaiah?

Sitting at your window on life what do you see? As you review history past and the implications for the future … just watching the nightly news or reading the newspapers or blogs. When and how often does it occur to you that we are all connected and for some reason the world really doesn’t have to behave the way we do … think about that and watch here …

Regardless of your take on the video or those who composed the presentation, we should all be impressed. some have said it’s tasteless or offensive, but really if you were just moved to think … it did the job.

What else Gentiles might need to know is that our Jewish counterparts, co-inhabitants, and measurably valuble contributors to the human experience … many have never read Isaiah 53 … it’s time they do … and you right along with them.

Muslims Embrace Jesus?

To get a reaction to the photo below, we draw your attention to the originating link to Freedom Outpost’s recent post.

Beyond the report at Freedom Outpost and the opinions expressed there … Our question is … if Jesus is who He says He is, then wouldn’t a Muslim need to know how this billboard goes contrary to what they were taught?

Ironically, Muslims decry foul when any negative comments are made about their beliefs, but what about the reality to this claim they make?  So, we are not being negative, instead we want to know if Muslims realize the true implications of how this sign turns the question back on them … and why ask a Muslim when we can ask those who know Jesus firsthand?  Worth a thought! You could ask both and compare notes! Worth getting the full picture!  If so, this sign is an ironic sign of the times!

5jesus

And yes, Yeshua (Jesus) is alive.  And where He is now has everything to do with Who he is beyond the answer one might get from following their weblink.  Frankly, we thank those who posted the billboard, because at the end of the day, finding out Who Jesus IS, is very important and that distinguishes fact and fiction.  The billboard asks a fundamental question … Who is He?  But more important, why do they find it so important to give their answer?

We who sit at the window and look at all perspectives already know why they are making their statement … Do you?
