ISRAEL E-CARD Volume 4 Issue 16 August 15, 2010
Topic # 1 Is The Sky Falling?
There is a tendency for prophecy buffs to want to put all of the last days prophecies into the same short time frame. However, this warning of Jesus informs us that even with wars multiplying the end is not quite at hand. There are multiple events between now and then.
We have predicted the Psalm 83 War to occur this summer, which still seems very possible. Yet, Israel’s closest neighbors are listed in that Psalm, while a completely different group is listed in Ezekiel 38-39. We conclude that these are two separate and distinct wars yet to come. It is sort of like an inner and outer beltline of a city. It looks to me like the first group has ceased to exist and the outer group steps up in Ezekiel. There is another very interesting observation. The inner country group is Arab Muslims, but the outer group is non-Arab Muslims.
Either way, Jesus says don’t be troubled, because the wars must happen before the end. So, fasten your seat belt as we approach these prophetic crossroads.
Topic #2 Deadline This Week for Israel’s Iran Attack
Former UN Ambassador John Bolton predicted on Fox News Friday that Israel would have to attack Iran by August 21 because Russia’s is about to fire up Iran’s first nuclear reactor. Once the fuel rods are loaded, “it makes it essentially immune from attack by Israel. Because once the rods are in the reactor an attack on the reactor risks spreading radiation in the air, and perhaps into the water of the Persian Gulf.” (Newsmax)
Also looming is the deadline for the peace talks which are doomed to fail on Palestinian preconditions threatening Israel’s very existence and must therefore always be rejected.
Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Matthew 24:3-6
