Iran Warns of Israel's Destruction...AGAIN!

Playground fights usually start with taunting...which leads to pushing...which leads to fighting.  Iran is saying that Israel lacks the courage to attack Iran.  That sounds a bit like taunting...

Tehran, June 23 (Xinhua-ANI): A deputy chief of staff of Iranian Armed Forces warned Israel against any military aggression on the Islamic republic, the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Saturday.

Israel lacks the courage and ability to harm Iran and in case it launches any attack on Iran, it will lead to an immediate end of Israel's existence, Major General Mostafa Izadi told Fars on Saturday.

The recent nuclear talks held in Moscow between Iran and the P5 1 - the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany - ended last Tuesday without a deal.

Iran is under numerous Western pressures to halt its controversial nuclear program which the Islamic republic insists on its "peaceful" and "civilian" nature.

"The Islamic Revolution enjoys high capability, and if the Zionist regime wants to take an action against us, it will cause its imminent end," Izadi was quoted as saying.

In addition to military capabilities, the Islamic republic enjoys many other privileges which outrun the abilities and capabilities of Israel, said the commander.


Hey!...that's twice in one short article that they talk of the end of Israel's existence.

If I was a betting man, I would bet lots of money that Israel isn't going anywhere close to the ash heap of nations.  Pretty sure the Bible says they aren't going anywhere...especially at the hands of Iran, Russia, Syria, Turkey, Egypt or any other nation or coalition.

Israel May Take Out Syria's WMD's

It would appear that the destruction of Damascus looms larger with every passing day's headlines.

U.S. intelligence agencies are closely watching Israel’s military for signs it will conduct strikes on Syria’s stockpiles of chemical weapons, amid concerns the deadly nerve agents could fall under the control of Hezbollah or al Qaeda terrorists, U.S. officials said.

Syria’s arsenal remains vulnerable as the result of the internal conflict currently underway in Syria between government forces and opposition rebels, one official said.

“Everyone suspects Syria maintains an active chemical weapons program; and it would be dangerous not to plan accordingly,” the official said.

The exact size of the Syrian chemical arsenal is not known. The Center for Strategic and International Studies reported several years ago that Syria has stockpiled 500 to 1,000 metric tons of chemical agents. The weapons are said to include long-lasting VX nerve agent and less-persistent Sarin nerve agent, as well as mustard blister agents.


We've said it before and we will say it again....Israel is VERY SENSITIVE to the idea of being gassed.  It goes back to WWII when millions of Jews were gassed in the "showers" of Nazi concentration camps....

Syria Shoots Down Turkish Fighter Jet

These types of 'incidences' are what can lead to full scale war.  We will need to watch this story closely to see how it develops.

Reports in Turkey initially stated that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan claimed that Syria had apologised for shooting down the plane.

"Syria immediately offered a very serious apology for the incident and admitted it was a mistake", Haberturk daily newspaper quoted Mr Erdogan as saying onboard a plane on the way to Turkey from Brazil.
However, Mr Erdogan later told a news conference that he could not confirm reports that Syria had shot it down and had apologised.
He said he had no word on the fate of the pilot and navigator on board.
"The chief of general staff has made the necessary statement about the missing plane. I am not saying it was brought down at the point it fell. It is not possible to say this without knowing the exact facts,"

The incident prompted the calling of an emergency security meeting to be led later on Friday by Mr Erdogan and attended by top military and intelligence chiefs.

Turkey is a member of Nato, meaning that it could invoke Article V of the North Atlantic Treaty and summon the aid of all 28 countries in the alliance if it comes under attack. Turkey's government is a strident critic of President Bashar al-Assad's regime and tension has risen along the land border between the two neighbours.

A series of shooting incidents has taken place across this frontier so far this year. The Free Syrian Army, a rebel alliance fighting to overthrow Mr Assad, has a strong presence inside Turkey. The Turkish air force, one of the strongest in the region, conducts regular patrols through the highly sensitive airspace near Syria.


Of course we see major movement of Russia coming together with Iran...but we sure are curious of how Turkey is going to come on board the Ezekiel 38 coalition when Iran and Russia are some of Syria's biggest supporters?

We will need to watch this development very closely.  Also remember that it's very possible that Ezekiel 38 will happen AFTER the rapture of the church...and once the rapture happens and the Holy Spirit is withdrawn...the entire geo-political chess board could be majorly shuffled.

Freemasonry Renounced

I believe that most folks who claim to part of a Masonic lodge are good, civic minded people who enjoy hanging out with other men, drinking a few beers and doing some community service projects.  The problem is, in the higher ranks of Masonry, Satan is being served.

Remember what Jesus said, "You are either for me or against me."  So does being a Mason lead you closer to Jesus or does it knowingly (or unknowingly) serve another master?

At Thursday’s service, which was marked by bold renunciations from several pastors and declarations from government via Senator Reverend David Durrant, the congregation of about 700 at Sanctuary Empowerment Centre prayed against the “spirits of fear, death, secret rites and passwords, the love of position and power” and the “mingling of truth with error”.

The event marked the last of a two-night lecture entitled Secrets Of Freemasonry and opened with a lecture by former master Tony Jordan, who left a local Scottish order 25 years ago after surrendering his life to Christ.

Jordan recalled giving his first expose of the lodge in 1991, being abandoned by his family and accused of having been ousted from the lodge in abject disgrace.

“In the lodge I met men of integrity, civic-minded men, law-abiding men, doctors . . . ,” he conceded as he addressed the congregation.

But he pointed out that several Masonic rites parodied the Word of God, particularly the death and resurrection of Christ.

Jordan also explained that most members in Barbados only rose to the position of master and were therefore unaware of the satanic elements of masonic lodges, whose stated tenets were brotherly love, relief and truth.

Only those in the higher echelons of the lodges, from the 31st to 33rd degree, were aware that satanic worship was at the core of their rituals and that Lucifer was worshipped as the Great Architect of the Universe, he added.

“They [masonic lodges] serve the same master: the Father of All Lights, Satan . . . . The rites seek to parallel much of what is in the Bible,” he told enthralled listeners.

This isn't the first article I have read by an ex-Masonic master.  The others also report the same thing.  A Mason is slowly groomed and heads up into more and bigger secrets, passwords, handshakes and blood oaths.

Now do a little Google searching and see if you can discover how many leaders of America have been 33 degree Masons.  You will probably be surprised...and it may add a whole new understanding of why the Bible tells us, "The whole world is under the control of the Evil One."

Yep...the "whole world" most definitely includes America.

Rosenberg Speaks of America's Implosion

Author Joel Rosenberg has come out with his new book called IMPLOSION.  He gives much evidence in this latest book that America is standing at the abyss...not only with financial problems but with morality breakdown, spiritual breakdown, family breakdown and more.

If you haven't seen him speak about this new book, you can catch him on Fox News interview here;

Yes friends, this nation needs Jesus Christ.  We need to turn back to Jesus...and if we don't, Rosenberg says we are going to implode.

Of course, I tend to agree with him.

100+ Rockets Fired Into Israel

I wonder where the United Nations is when it comes to condemning these attacks by angry Muslims on Israeli civilians?

Oh yeah....the UN won't say a word until Israel retaliates and uses "unequal violence" against the Arab aggressors.

On Wednesday, some 70 rockets were fired by Gaza Arab terrorists at Israeli targets. On Wednesday night, before the declaration of the cease fire, a rocket exploded in the Ashkelon area. No one was injured, and no damage was reported in that attack. An additional rocket fired at the area triggered the Red Alert warning system.

Classes in towns in southern Israel, including in Ashkelon, were cancelled Thursday. Residents in the area were warned to remain on alert for the Color Red warnings, which, defense officials said, could come at any time of day or night.

Earlier, IAF aircraft struck seven terror sites in Gaza overnight Tuesday and early Wednesday morning. Hits were confirmed and all aircraft returned safely to their airbases.


Remember when you were little kids and your brother would punch you in the arm and then you would punch him back a little harder?  Then he would punch you even harder in return?  This little tit-for-tat would continue until the little brother (me) would start to cry because he hit me "too hard!"

It would be at this point when I would get so mad that I would come swinging and kicking at my big brother hoping to inflict so much damage that my mother wouldn't recognize him.  Of course I was never capable of inflicting the damage that I dreamed that I would.

This Israel-Palestinian thing is kinda like that......excep real people are going to die.

Quake Rocks Australia

There are so many earthquakes going on that we simply have quit posting about all of them.  But today we have in interesting one hitting Victoria, Australia....because they haven't had one in over 100 years!

It was the biggest earthquake to hit Victoria in more than a century and millions felt it when it struck just before 9pm (AEST) for about 30 to 40 seconds on Tuesday.

Reports started coming in from residents in suburban Melbourne and then spread to the northeast and southeast of the state.

Windows were rattled, floors rocked and roofs shook as the quake struck at about 8.55pm.

The Geoscience Australia website was in meltdown as people flocked online to find out what occurred and Twitter went wild.

When Geoscience was able to restore its site it had the news that the quake that rocked Victoria was the biggest in the state for 109 years.

Geoscience reported the earthquake had a magnitude of 5.3, down from their earlier estimate of 5.5.

"I've been here for 44 years and never felt anything like it."

He said the quake lasted for around 20 to 30 seconds "but it felt like a lifetime".


Yep...earthquakes in various places....seems about right that they are now happening in strange places that aren't usually used to experiencing quakes.

I wonder if this will wake some more people up?....I hope so, but I'm not holding my breath.

Russia and Iran to Hold Massive War Games

Yes, it IS pretty interesting that Ezekiel 38 calls for a military coalition of Russia and Persia (Iran) that will form in the Last Days and plan an attack on Israel...and that yesterday Russia, Iran, Syria and China have just announced a massive war game they have planned.

“Iran, Russia, China and Syria will hold the Middle East’s largest ever war game, Iranian news outlets reported quoting unnamed sources,” reports the Jerusalem Post. “According to the report, 90,000 troops, 400 warplanes and 1,000 tanks from the four countries will take part in land and sea exercises. The war games will feature Russian atomic submarines, according to Iranian media, as well as warships, aircraft carriers and mine-clearing destroyers. Semi-official Iranian FARS news agency stated that the exercise was being planned in coordination with Egypt, which recently acceded to grant the passage of 12 Chinese warships through the Suez Canal. The report stated that the Chinese naval convoy is due to dock in Syrian harbors within the next two weeks. Regarding the timing of the planned exercise, FARS quoted unnamed Syrian officials as saying the war game would be held ‘soon’….”

Things are moving fast we all know where our Foundation is?  If the security of familiar things begins to shake...have we built our houses on The Rock?

Huge Cloud in China

A huge thunderhead-mushroom cloud over Beijing has sparked lots of comments there about the 'end of the world'.

To the untrained eye, it could have been the first signal of the end of the world as nuclear war broke out.

But instead of anything sinister, the giant mushroom cloud spotted in the skies over the Chinese capital last week was simply a brilliant showcase of the wonder of nature.

The huge cloud, which appeared on Thursday, gradually took the shape of an explosion from an atomic bomb.

Read more:

Yes, God does clearly reveal Himself through His creation.  Romans tells us that no man will have an excuse when they stand before God...because His awesome power has been shown through observing nature.

As you look at these pictures and realize that Beijing has a very small population of Christ sure makes one wonder if God isn't ramping up evidence of His amazing creation in hopes that many will turn to Him in these Last Days...that none should perish.

He certainly is a merciful God, but how much longer will He delay justice for this sinful, Satanic planet...where man does anything he sees fit and feels he is accountable to no one?

What Happened in Greece?

It appears some "good news" came out of the Greek elections yesterday.  The majority of voters voted to elect the party that wants to keep Greece IN the Eurozone...meaning they voted to continue the pain of paying back loans by enacting sweeping budget cuts...which are very painful.

But does this change anything really?  Will this stop the outflow of cash that is leaving the banks?  Will they be able to turn around their economy quickly enough so that the pain of austerity will begin to lessen in the near future?...or did this simply delay the inevitable for a few more weeks or months?

Simply put, Europe is a financial mess...and Greece is simply the tip of the problem.

FRANKFURT — After Greek elections eased fears that the country’s exit from the euro zone was imminent, attention turned Monday to another unruly political arena: Europe itself.

A respite from market pressure early Monday proved to be short-lived, as investors shifted their attention from political infighting in Athens to the larger question of whether European leaders could find a more lasting solution to an economic debacle now well into its third year.

As heads of E.U. member governments prepare to meet next week in Brussels, they contemplate a growing list of problems. They must keep Greece on life support, carry out a rescue of Spanish banks, and prevent the crisis from infecting Italy. At the same time, they are embarking on a contentious and potentially drawn-out struggle to re-engineer a euro currency union whose weaknesses have allowed all these problems to accumulate.

“We are still in a crisis of confidence,” said Harald Benink, a professor of banking and finance at Tilburg University in the Netherlands. “Quite a few of the fundamental issues have not been resolved.” thing we are watching for is movement towards some type of government in Europe that has 10 kings, or 10 nations....which may mean that what comes out of the Euro mess will be 10 nations with authority.

Why?  Because the prophet Daniel saw a vision of the days ruled by the Antichrist and he spoke of 10 rulers coming out of the revived Roman Empire...which most likely will be Europe.

"The ten horns are ten kings who will come out of this kingdom.  After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones (Antichrist); he will subdue three kings.  He will speak against the Most High and oppress the saints and try to change the set times and the laws."  Daniel 7:24

Showdown Coming for Egypt?

Egypt is most definitely a country to watch.  They are a named player in as yet unfulfilled biblical prophecies and of course they are right on the border to Israel.

Today we have info coming that a tussle may be soon coming between the military and Islamists.

The candidate's Muslim Brotherhood, which had representatives at polling stations across the country during the overnight count, has claimed that its candidate won 52% of the vote compared to 48% for his rival, former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq.

"I'm very, very happy," said Muhammad, a Mursi supporter. "The Brotherhood proved to be a successful political group. They will help us get jobs and we will see Islamic law."

The Shafiq campaign criticised the Islamist group for its victory announcement, saying it represented "bizarre behaviour" ahead of any official confirmation of the final result.


So a big chunk of Egyptian voters want the Muslim Brotherhood to rule the country with Islamic law.  Wow...that ought to go well.

But the military, who has the guns and tanks, is pretty positive it doesn't want a bunch of Islamists running the country.

Sounds like the Arab Spring isn't quite done in Egypt.

Israel must be watching all this news with a keen eye.

Obama Hosts LGBT Pride about the leader of the Free World sticking his finger in the eye of Almighty God....

President Barack Obama promised a roomful of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) activists on Friday that he would be their "fellow advocate" as long as he is in the White House.

Obama, hosting an LGBT Pride Month reception in the mansion's ornate East Room, thanked gay servicemen and —women for their service and alluded to the fitful process that led him to publicly endorse same-sex marriage.

"Americans may be still evolving when it comes to marriage equality," he said to laughter and applause. "But as I've indicated personally, Michelle and I have made up our minds on this issue."

Prior to his historic reversal on the issue, Obama had said he was "evolving" on whether to back same-sex marriage. Aides insisted he had always planned to come out in favor even before Vice President Joe Biden forced his hand.

"We still have a long way to go, but we will get there. We'll get there because of all of you," Obama predicted."And as long as I have the privilege of being your President, I promise you, you won't just have a friend in the White House, you will have a fellow advocate for an America where no matter what you look like or where you come from or who you love, you can dream big dreams and dream as openly as you want," he promised.


If that's what the Leader of the Free World is doing...and God himself ordains the makes one wonder how much longer there will be freedom on earth.  Some have said that America is earth's LAST BEST where does that leave us??

Pray for our leaders people, and pray for this nation.  In spite of all its flaws, America has been the shining light on the hill and it appears our light is quickly growing dim.
