Raging, Ruination, Rumblings and Repulsion
Muslims don’t need an excuse to rage against Israel. It’s what they’ve been doing for centuries. They’re raging this week with protests and acts of violence, not just in Jerusalem, but also in Europe, which is becoming ‘Europeistan.’ Putin, the ‘Palestinian’-supporting pope, and leaders in Europe are complaining too, but who they’re all really against is God (Psalm 2). It’s how it is in these last days; and it’s going to get worse, as those who study Bible prophecy know (Zechariah 12).
As wars and rumors of wars abound (Matthew 24), we continue to see the last days prophecies in Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38-39 getting closer to being fulfilled every day. Also a video surfaced this week showing the commander of Iraq’s Iranian-backed Asaib Ahl al-Haq militia, in south Lebanon overlooking Northern Israel. He said, “We here with Hezbollah declare our total readiness to stand together with the Lebanese people and the Palestinian cause against Israeli occupation.” Will there be another conflict with Israel involving Lebanon and Gaza as well? The coming days will show.
God tells us to love and bless Israel (Genesis 12:3), and pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6). We must continue to do so until Jesus catches us away in the rapture.
Creation is Groaning and Rumbling: Fires are raging in Southern California… in December? And what volcano has awakened after a 250-year slumber?
A report from Dec. 6 stated how unusual it is to have this many active fires burning in Southern California in December. Statistics show this nearly equals the total of all large December wildfires from 2000 to 2015. And the fires are still raging, with December not nearly over. As of this writing, one death has been reported, several firefighters have been injured, many horses have perished, and hundreds of schools were closed. Pray that these fires dissipate without further loss of life.
In other news of creation groaning, there is yet another volcano rumbling. In Russia this week, the Kambalny volcano started spewing ash after waking from a 250-year slumber.
Pray for the Families of Victims of the School Shooting in New Mexico
A 21-year old man, who decided that he wanted to commit suicide, went into his former high school and chose two random students to murder before turning the gun on himself.
Pray for the Unborn as Mankind Gets More Revolting By the Day (Romans 1:18-32).
In other news this week, our federal tax dollars for quite a number of years have funded the creation of “humanized mice” implanted with tissues taken from aborted babies, which scientists continue to “improve upon.” The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has funded experiments such as “The New Humanized Rodent Model Workshop.” One federally funded scientist attending it described a mouse that was “humanized” with “fetal liver and thymus.” These organs were taken from an aborted baby five to six months after conception.
“For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body” (Romans 8:20-24).
Come, Lord Jesus.
