While #AmericanEvangelicalism skates along largely oblivious – or perhaps in resignation – to the uncontainable collapse of their careless, morally bankrupt, Disneyland culture and the hirelings in American pulpits furtively assuage the frightened sheep and the ambivalent tares in their flocks with notions of “revival” and escape from the repercussions of their careless living, prophetic history moves forward.
Recent weeks and seemingly disparate events brings the Middle East closer to WWIII – and fulfillment (my Preterist friend’s varied insistence this being the war at the end of the thousand year reign aside) of the Ezekiel 38-39 war scenario. The recent Israeli Air Force (IDF) strikes in the area of Palmyra, Syria, have brought the Israelis extremely close to Russian assets deployed in the area to support the Syrian Army and their ally Bashar Assad. The March bombing run and peripheral events was a bit much for Russia.
It is important to note that the Jewish nation is very up front about their security intentions, especially as they seek to maintain the balance of power in preventing “game changer” arms falling into the hands of their enemies, like Hezb’Allah and Hamas in Gaza. Netanyahu reiterated this again in this situation.
“When we identify attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah — when we have the intel and the operational capability — we act to prevent it. That’s how we’ve acted and how we will continue to act… and everyone needs to take this into account,” Netanyahu said on Friday.
Yet, the Russians seem to think that their presence in the area and supporting Assad in his civil war exempts them from the inevitable collateral damage when Israel moves on a security threat – even going so far to say that these “games” are over.
Or what? They’ll invade Israel? Under the pretext of upending this lawless “rogue regime” and partnered with a “coalition of the willing?”
Read the Bible Vlad. The casualty counts are going to be apocalyptic when you finally do. It’s really going to take the wind out of your sails, along with your Islamist allies. And it isn’t going to be the Israelis bringing the pain….
