The Gaza ‘Demonstrations’: Just Another Demonic Suicide March
Nearly 100 Palestinians have been killed in clashes at the Gaza/Israeli border fence. For the past several weeks, the people of Gaza have hopelessly tried to breach the border and enter into Israel. A sane person would declare this to be a stupid endeavor; but, with each passing day, the Palestinians become all the more motivated in achieving an invasion of the Jewish state.
Hamas, the Islamic terrorist organization that rules Gaza, has made every effort to involve as many people as possible in the conflict. Schools in the Strip were closed. Fishermen were prohibited from working. Buses were chartered to bring people to the protests. The Gaza-ruling terrorist group even offered to pay people for attending — $100 per family. If someone gets shot, Hamas will pay them $300 to $500. If a protester gets killed, the family will receive a payment of $3,000.
The Israeli military has done everything possible to avoid bloodshed. The army has used drones and cannons to propel vast amounts of tear gas into the crowds. They’ve also used water cannons, foul- smelling liquids, and sponge-tipped bullets. A long line of razor wire was stretched out to prevent the Palestinians from reaching the main fence. They also dropped leaflets that warned people to stay away from the border fence.
No other nation on earth would have tolerated this type of action on its border without using deadly force. At least 52 of the 60 Palestinians reportedly killed in clashes ahead of the Jerusalem opening of the U.S. Embassy in Israel were members of Hamas. A dozen of them were killed trying to plant bombs on or near the border wall. Most were shot for hurling pipe bombs, firebombs and other deadly objects at IDF troops.
The liberal media has been absolutely disgraceful in how they have covered the conflict. They paint a picture of poor innocent Palestinians being slaughtered by the trigger-happy Israeli military. In an NPR interview, a reporter tells a young man that the Israelis will exploit the fact that he has a swastika on his kite. The man answered by saying, “This is what we want them to know, that we want to burn them.”
When 45 Palestinians were killed in Syria in April, the world didn’t protest those deaths. In that case, the Jews weren’t involved, so there was no reason to care.
None of the reporters on the ground are based out of Gaza because they know Hamas would kill them. They use their press credentials to go into the danger zone to watch Palestinians act like animals, and then they go back to their safe Israeli hotels to write stories negative of the IDF.
Hamas has been 100% transparent that terrorism is their intention. Anyone monitoring Gaza TV would know this truth. The Mossad posted one of Hamas’s operating plans for the Monday protest. Here is one paragraph that shows their true colors:
“Demonstrators are requested to act in accordance with the demand to bring a knife or a gun, to hide them under their clothes and not use them except where is needed to capture soldiers or residents of Israel. It is requested not to kill them, but to hand them over to the resistance forces, as this is an important bargaining chip of which Israel is afraid.”
Israel has won all the battles to defend its border, but Hamas is slowly winning the propaganda war. The Jewish state has been bombarded with condemnations and accusations of excessive force from around the world. Two countries, South Africa and Turkey, announced they were pulling their ambassadors from Israel. The Israeli ambassador to Ireland received a formal dressing down. The US veto power is the only thing preventing the UN Security Council from passing a condemnation of Israel.
This illogical hatred of the Jews in handling the Gaza border conflict has the devil’s fingerprint all over it. Satan is a master at deceiving vast multitudes to follow him into rebellion. He convinced a third of the heavenly angels to join his side, he was behind every dictator that tried to enslave the world, and he will soon organize the Battle of Armageddon. The most chilling example of Satan’s skills is his very last rebellion. Jesus will have ruled on earth for 1,000 years with perfect peace. As soon as the devil is set free from his abysmal prison, he will quickly gather a large army of people to attack the Holy City.
The only thing holding back Satan is God’s authorization. Bible prophecy and the growing madness in Gaza tell us that the go ahead will soon be given.
Revelation 20:7-10, “When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
We know we are at the end of the dispensation of grace for specific reasons. A number of these come to mind.
Evil men and seducers are growing worse, as the Apostle Paul forewarned. The time has come when “they”–meaning religionists who claim to know Christ but do not–will not “endure sound doctrine.”
All of Paul’s “perilous times” prophecies are in view, as we have dissected many times. False accusers, for example, are in our daily headlines, with lies being told for political gain or just to heap hatred upon ideological enemies.
There is a denial that God should be found anywhere in humanistic governance. As stated many times, here, Psalm 2 is in play as never before. The international community, i.e., the UN and those within every other such globalist forum, want to “break the bands asunder” that bind the human race to any form of godly mooring.
We know these are the last days because there are scoffers that say in mocking derision: “Where is the promise of his coming, for since the fathers fell asleep all things are as they were from the beginning?”
In addition to all the above, proof that we are in prophesied times of the end occurred Monday, May 14. Israel reached what many Bible prophecy observers view as the span of a generation–70 years since its refounding into modernity. This, many believe, is the gist of the prophecy the Lord gave while expounding on things to come atop the Mount of Olives.
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. (Matthew 24:32-35)
Israel is generally considered the prime signal of where we are on God’s prophetic timeline. That strange nation has reached its 70th birthday so far as its modern incarnation is concerned. A generation is defined by God’s Word as 70 years in one specific instance. Therefore, Jesus, who is the Word, giving this Olivet Prophecy about the fig tree–often the symbol for Israel–makes the modern nation’s 70th anniversary living proof to many that the end of the age is upon this generation.
I term Israel ”strange” because of the fact that it is like no other in human history. Having been completely destroyed as a nation, its people dispersed into all the world and its language dissolved, yet it is now back in its God-given land. It has its native language again–Hebrew–and is the center of worldwide attention.
As I often remind, no matter which way the cameras and microphones turn to capture other stories, they always, without fail, turn right back to that one spot on planet earth that is God’s touchstone–to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, where the Holy of Holies sat and will reside again one prophetic day.
So, Israel is in the headlines again this past week. The hatreds of the world are in full display to prove God’s Word about the rebellion of the globalists found in Psalm 2.
Satan is in a rage because he above all else has wanted to completely destroy Israel and the Jewish people. If he could do so, he would make the Creator a liar, and his own fate in the Lake of Fire could be avoided.
But, God’s Word is truth. Things are unfolding exactly as God foretells, and right on time. Further proof of God’s prophetic truth is reflected in an excerpt or two from the following news story:
(May 9, 2018 / JNS) In the past 70 years, no single country’s stock has risen faster or farther than the State of Israel. Once a resource-poor, existentially endangered nation-state comprised of refugees from post-Holocaust Europe and Muslim countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa, Israel has emerged into a world economic, military and diplomatic superpower.
In just one week, Israel’s elevated status is being put on full display, in no small part due to the unlikely and oft-polarizing duo of U.S. President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu…
It is, of course, fitting that the very date—May 14—of the new embassy’s opening ceremony corresponds both with Yom Yerushalayim (“Jerusalem Day”) on the Hebrew calendar and the 70th anniversary of Israel’s Independence on the secular calendar…
While the Jewish state’s stock is rising, Israel’s enemies are imploding. Though Iran has expanded its reach across the Middle East—wreaking havoc on Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen—severe cracks have been exposed in the dictatorial regime of the Islamic Republic. During the past year, public protests against the regime’s corruption have broken out across the country. And in the past several weeks, the value of Iran’s currency, the rial, has plummeted, throwing Iran into severe economic uncertainty even before the impending onset of the “highest level of economic sanctions” about to be imposed by the United States. (“Jerusalem is rising as Israel’s enemies falter,” Alex Traiman, JNS.org, May 13, 2018)
Proof of the truth of God’s Word is found throughout Bible prophecy. We are witnessing that proof each and every day as issues and events of our time emerge from the headlines.
Israel, although hated by most of the world leaders, is blossoming. So is the United States of America under this presidential administration.
Iran, arguably Israel’s chief enemy, whose Islamist leaders call Israel the “little Satan,” and America “the big Satan,” are sinking deeper into the curse promised to all who curse God’s chosen people.
There is no illusion here that terrible times are not to soon unfold for the Jewish people. It is prophesied. But the end of it all will be a glorious outcome beyond any ever bestowed upon any nation or people:
I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it to you and to your descendants. Your descendants
shall also be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread out to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and in you and in your
descendants shall all the families of the earth be blessed. And behold, I am with you, and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this
land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you. (Genesis 28:13-15)
Because this novel portrays things about to take place very soon –even if through fiction– I hope the story will reach out and touch believers with the urgency of this prophetic hour.
I’m quite pleased that the book is available for less than $8 in paperback, thus making it easily affordable.
My hope is that many who read the story will write reviews on Amazon. I thank you in advance for reviewing this novel –fiction that represents absolute Truth from God’s Prophetic Word.
