Al Qaida Problems in Iran

Genesis tells us in 16;12, "He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers."

This passage, of course, is referring to the sons of Ishmael...the present day arabs. It seems the only thing that unites them is their hatred of God's covenant people, the Jews. So it should come as no surprise that the split of Islam into Shia and Sunni happened almost immediately...and has continued to this day.

The article below talks about Al Qaida forces (sunni) kidnapping and killing Iranian police (shiiites) and now Iran is threatening to punch their teeth out for committing the crime. Read article here;,2506,L-3634122,00.html

Please remember to pray today for the Iranian people and their leader, Ahmadinejad.

Record Number Late on Mortgages

It appears that the financial crisis is growing darker. This LA Times article reports that 10% of homeowners are falling behind on their mortgage payments. Yes, I guarantee you that a lot of those people bought houses they couldn't afford and used fancy mortgages that seemed too good to be true. But I also know that many responsible, hard working people are starting to fall into this financial trap as their jobs disappear...and it becomes much harder to find a new one.

Also notice that it is a "Record" number...which is just one more example of the extreme times in which we are living.

Finally, remember that during the depths of the Great Depression, 45% of Americans lost their homes to foreclosure. So the optomist would say we are nowhere close to that level and the pessimist would say that we have a lot further to fall.

Terrorist Training In Twin Cities?

The article below is disturbing for a variety of reasons. It appears that Somalian boys and young men are being recruited to train as Islamic fighters and suicide bombers...right here in the Twin Cities. They are going to after-school programs at their local mosque, but instead of playing basketball and having a snack...they are being brainwashed into believing the hatred and lies of radical Islam.

One boy even graduated from Roosevelt High School but still turned into a suicide bomber and blew himself up in northern Somalia.

I do know that Somalia IS one of the places mentioned in Ezekiel 38 that joins the Russian coalition. So I would expect to watch the Satanic hatred really continue to brew in that country and in that community.

Please continue to pray for these lost souls of Islam. They believe they are killing themselves to receive unlimited virgins and wine in a pornographic paradise...but instead they are greeted by Satan himself soon after blowing themselves up. What a terrifying, eternal mistake for a young man to make.

Hat tip to Julie.

Strike Iran

This article in Fox News talks about Israel preparations to strike Iran with or without the aid of the U.S. The rumors continue to build.,2933,461588,00.html

It is interesting that Ehud Olmert was in D.C. just last week to talk to President Bush. Ostensibly, the listed reason was to say goodbye to each other after years of working together...some rumorists claim Olmert was telling Bush what Israel was GOING to do regardless of American's position.

Please continue to pray for Israel, President Elect Obama, President Bush and also the muslim world. Thousands of muslims continue to come to Christ on a daily basis through dreams and visions. It is obvious that Christ is working mightily on those people...and Satan is opposing Him at every move.

Psalm 83

In the past few months, Psalm 83 has been appearing to me in various readings. So I have been pondering it.

Psalm 83

God Implored to Confound His Enemies.

A Song, a Psalm of Asaph.

1O God, do not remain quiet;
Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.
2For behold, Your enemies make an uproar,
And those who hate You have exalted themselves.
3They make shrewd plans against Your people,
And conspire together against Your treasured ones.
4They have said, "Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation,
That the name of Israel be remembered no more."
5For they have conspired together with one mind;
Against You they make a covenant:
6The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
Moab and the Hagrites;
7Gebal and Ammon and Amalek,
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8Assyria also has joined with them;
They have become a help to the children of Lot. Selah.
9Deal with them as with Midian,
As with Sisera and Jabin at the torrent of Kishon,
10Who were destroyed at En-dor,
Who became as dung for the ground.
11Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb
And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12Who said, "Let us possess for ourselves
The pastures of God."
13O my God, make them like the whirling dust,
Like chaff before the wind.
14Like fire that burns the forest
And like a flame that sets the mountains on fire,
15So pursue them with Your tempest
And terrify them with Your storm.
16Fill their faces with dishonor,
That they may seek Your name, O LORD.
17Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever,
And let them be humiliated and perish,
18That they may know that You alone, whose name is the LORD,
Are the Most High over all the earth.

As you read this, understand that the ancient names of the countries and peoples that are mentioned above are still here on earth. For instance, Tyre is Lebanon. Ishmaelites are Saudi Arabia. Philistia would be the Palestinians in Gaza and West Bank. Ammon would be Jordan. What's VERY interesting about this prophecy is that it has not been fulfilled yet and the players mentioned are the one's who have been most vocal about destroying Israel.

Is it possible that God is going to come and help Israel destroy these enemies...thereby allowing Israel to dwell in "peace and safety" as mentioned in Ezekiel 39? If so, it would seem that Psalm 83 would need to happen first to set the table for a Russian-Iranian coalition to fulfill Ezekiel 38-39.

I will post more as I find more understanding on this Psalm.

Stopping Tehran

This article was written in the Washington Post 7 weeks ago, but I forgot to post it. It is written by some key members of the bi-partisan task force assemble to figure out what to do about Iran. One thing that sticks out is that they are recommending that the U.S. assure Israel that the we will NOT let Tehran acquire nuclear bomb materials. If Israel doesn't believe we are sincere about that...they will act militarily on a unilateral basis.

WMD Terror

There has been a bi-partisan panel meeting in D.C. to discuss the threat of nuclear and/or biological terrorism being carried out in the U.S. The findings are not happy news but rather disturbing (surprise!).

"Graham said the threat of a terrorist attack using nuclear or biological weapons is growing "not because we have not done positive things but because adversaries are moving at an even faster pace to increase their access" to those materials."

"We think time is not our ally. The (United States) needs to move with a sense of urgency," Graham said.

Well maybe if we can get our minds off of Brittney Spear's comback tour...we can finally focus on something that has urgency!

India and Pakistan

Let's remember that India and Pakistan have been at war over the Kashmir territory for decades. It's a tenuous peace situation. So it is not good for the stability of the world that these two nuclear powers are starting to point fingers. It appears the attackers are (suprise!) radical muslim extremists from some group that probably has ties to Al Qaida...and are all Pakistanis.

Read the article here;

If the demonstrations continue in India and a cry goes out for revenge on Pakistan, it will be something to watch.

Various Places

"There will be earthquakes in various places..." says the word of God as a sign that will usher in the Day of the Lord. There seems to be so many that I usually don't take the time to post them. However, the tremblings in Arkansas caught by attention. Experts are warning that it could be rumblings of a large fault that produced a massive quake in Missouri in 1812 that actually made the Mississippi run to the north for a time. Says the expert;

"It is abnormal. It is significant," he said. "We need to carefully watch this activity."

Read the article here;

In Alaska there are rumblings;

And Indonesia;

And there was a 7.0 in Russian...and all this is just in the past few days.
