Good for the Pope!

While I disagree personally with a lot of catholicism, the pope seems to be pretty solid on what he said at World Youth Day. You can read it here and see if you agree;

"The consequence of believing in relativism, the Holy Father observed, is that “practically everything” is indiscriminately given value, which makes "experience" all-important.
“Yet, experiences, detached from any consideration of what is good or true, can lead, not to genuine freedom, but to moral or intellectual confusion, to a lowering of standards, to a loss of self-respect, and even to despair,” the Pontiff told the youth."

Terrorist Nukes in USA?

If this article is even remotely true, it is terrifying...and will truly cause grown men to faint with fear.

Note the date of the is 3 yrs old.

Do we have any doubt that IF these evil planners could kill millions of Americans, that they would? Do we have a reason to believe that if we could send a politican to talk to them, that he could convince them of their evil ways and bribe them to stand down? What earthly wealth could we offer someone who gets joy from killing ordinary citizens and children?

Pray for our Homeland Security, FBI, CIA and other agencies assigned to figure out all these plots. But in the end, we all know that only the power of God can protect us from every seen and unseen enemy.

Bodies Exchanged for Criminals

Top headlines again in the news are about a swap that Israel made with Hezbollah. Hezbollah had the bodies of two Israeli soldiers that they kidnapped and killed. The event led to the outbreak of Lebanon-Israel war of 2006. In exchange, Israel was giving Hezbollah the remains of some of it's jihad fighters killed by Israel but also was releasing live prisoners that had been convicted and were serving time in Israeli jails. Read the article here;

"Today Lebanon witnesses an unprecedented victory over Israel," proclaimed Lebanon's Ad-Diyar newspaper. "Today the Lebanese prisoners return to their country with their heads held high."

And again, the enemies of Israel (and The West) will use this as a victory in their propaganda war and it will embolden them to reach deeper and farther into Israel the next time...which may be coming soon.

Israel, Iran and the Bomb

John Bolton is writing again about the Iranian problem. Today this article appeared in the Wall Street Journal and you can read it here;

Quite frankly, the prospect of Israel and the US going into Iran with planes and missiles is terrifying. Gasoline could be $8 gallon the very next day. And that would have a devastating effect on the US economy which is already trembling because of the housing slow down and mortgage banking debacle.

In addition to this, even moderate Muslim countries who hate Iran, may have to take some sort of action against Israel simply to defend the honor of their fellow muslims...and because of a shared hatred of Israel.

So if we invade...we're sunk. If we do nothing and Iran blackmails the world and ultimately nukes someboday...we're sunk. The world is screaming for answers and leaders to deliver them, but the bible tells us that the world is stay focused on eternal things and remember that we are not of this world since our eternal home lies with Christ.

Gog and Persia

Ezekiel 38 says there will be a union in the last days between Gog (Russia) and Persia (Iran). For the first time in human history, this is taking place. Why should we watch for this? Because the bible tells us that this unholy alliance will try and anihilate Israel and only the supernatural power of God's intervention will save them. Furthermore, it will be for all the world to see.

Prophecy experts are split on whether the Rapture of the church will happen before or after this event. But we know the rapture will take place during the season of this event. So with that in mind, news like this gives us one more sign that we should be watching for the Messiah. Read it here;

Different Middle East in 3 Months

This is an ominous article that came out of the Sunday Times of London. Reportedly, Bush has given an amber light for Israel to plan for a military attack on Iran. "Amber" means that Israel should keep planning and then give Bush the heads up so they can coordinate the attack. Very serious times indeed and notice the very last paragraph.
"The Times cited one of Olmert's closest friends as quoting the prime minister: "In three months’ time it will be a different Middle East.”

Obama to Jerusalem

Jerusalem is in the headlines...again. This time with Obama planning a trip to the West Bank to meet with Abbas, the recognized leader of the Palestinians. Read it here;

Let's remember that Abbas has absolutely no control in Gaza after the Hamas political party (terrorists) overthrew the democratically elected Fatah political party. (who are also terrorists) The world chooses to support Abbas and Fatah simply because they believe them to be the lesser of two evils. If you look up Abbas's history you will soon discover that he is a terrorist in a suit, but may be playing nice right now with Israel and The West because his physical life and political life are in danger from Hamas.

Peace with Palestine

The headline today is that Israel and Palestine have never been this close to making peace. Read it here;

Is this true? Can Abbas speak for the Palestinian people when he has no control over Gaza and Hamas?

We are commanded to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, so let's hope that this headline really is going to have some basis in truth.
