Israel's Choice: War Now or Nuclear War Later

Another day finds another article about Israel right in the heart of the Wall Street Journal.

The world continues to buzz about Team Obama and the nuclear deal they laid out with Iran...and it seems most of the world can't imagine how Team Obama could have been so naive. How can you trust people who scream "DEATH TO AMERICA!" as soon as you walk out the door?

Here is the headline in the Wall Street today:


[I]n allowing Iran to get the bomb, [Obama] is not averting war. What he is doing is setting the stage for a nuclear war between Iran and Israel.

The reason stems from the fact that, with hardly an exception, all of Israel believes that the Iranians are deadly serious when they proclaim that they are bound and determined to wipe the Jewish state off the map. It follows that once Iran acquires the means to make good on this genocidal commitment, each side will be faced with only two choices: either to rely on the fear of a retaliatory strike to deter the other from striking first, or to launch a pre-emptive strike of its own.

Yet when even a famous Iranian “moderate” like the former President Hashemi Rafsanjani has said—as he did in 2001, contemplating a nuclear exchange—that “the use of even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will destroy everything. However, it will only harm the Islamic world. It is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality,” how can deterrence work?

The brutal truth is that the actual alternatives before us are not Mr. Obama’s deal or war. They are conventional war now or nuclear war later. John Kerry recently declared that Israel would be making a “huge mistake” to take military action against Iran. But Mr. Kerry, as usual, is spectacularly wrong. Israel would not be making a mistake at all, let alone a huge one. On the contrary, it would actually be sparing itself—and the rest of the world—a nuclear conflagration in the not too distant future.


God told us that the eyes of the entire world will be on Israel in the very last days...and certainly they are.

In the history of the world there has NEVER been a people group who has been dispersed from their land, language and culture for 2000 years and then returned and rebuilt it all!!  The fact the Israel even exists is a major, modern-day miracle that should give us even more confidence in the Word of God.

Jesus said there would be wars and rumors of war and that if he didn't cut the wars short by HIS RETURN to earth that NO FLESH would survive.  Furthermore He said that all these things MUST happen.  So as we read the news and understand that the table appears to be set for the VERY Last Days we should remember to thank Jesus for counting us as worthy to be eyewitnesses to possibly most amazing events in the history of planet earth!

Are you fearful of the things that are coming or excited to see Jesus fulfill all the things written?
