A Fight to the End :: By Daymond Duck

On Nov. 28, 2023, an Israeli Arab Affairs Correspondent reported that Hamas had offered to release all its remaining hostages for an end to the war.

On Nov. 28, 2023, it was reported that Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu said:

  • “There is no way we are not going back to fight to the end. This is my policy, the entire Cabinet stands behind it, the entire government stands behind it, the soldiers stand behind it, the people stand behind it—this is exactly what we will do.”
  • “From the beginning of the war, I set three goals: the elimination of Hamas, the return of all our hostages, and to ensure that Gaza will never again be a threat to Israel. These three goals remain.”
  • “Over the last few days, I’ve heard a question: When this phase of returning our hostages is exhausted, will Israel return to fighting? My answer is an unequivocal yes.”

Hamas has said they will not stop trying to destroy Israel.

They will try again, and again, and again until they succeed.

This leaves Israel with no choice but to destroy Hamas before Hamas destroys Israel.

Several Muslim leaders have said they will not allow Israel to destroy Hamas, so this raises many questions:

  • What will Iran, Turkey, Syria, Russia, Hezbollah, and others do?
  • How will God respond if several nations enter the war to prevent Israel from destroying Hamas?
  • Does anyone have a plan that will establish peace and safety in the Middle East?

(More: On Nov. 28, 2023, the son of Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef posted a video on X urging Israel to give Hamas a deadline of one to six months for the release of all hostages, and to kill the Hamas leaders, including his father, if they do not meet it. He also said Hamas wants Israel to release murderers in exchange for the hostages, and those murderers will continue to kill people if they can. He also wants Israel to treat Qatar as an enemy state if they do not stop financing Hamas.)

(More: On Nov. 29, 2023, Israel’s Ambassador to the UN told UN Security Council Members, Arab nations, and others that met with the UN Security Council, “This (the Hamas attack on Israel) is not a political conflict or about partitioning land. It is solely about the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews.” He added, “Anyone who supports a ceasefire basically supports Hamas’ continued reign of terror in Gaza.”)

(More: On Nov. 30, 2023, Israeli Prime Min. Netanyahu told U.S. Sec. of State Blinken, “I have sworn to destroy Hamas. Nothing will stop us.”)

(More: On Dec. 1, 2023, Hamas broke the ceasefire, and the war resumed. The possibility of others getting involved and other prophecies being fulfilled has just increased.)

Here are some recent reports of events that seem to relate to Bible prophecy:

One, concerning corruption in the UN: on Nov. 29, 2023, it was reported that two released hostages said:

  • One hostage said I was locked in an attic for 50 days by a United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) employee with barely enough food and no help with my medical needs.
  • The other hostage said I was held by a Gazan doctor (Hamas controlled the UN healthcare system in Gaza).

(More: On Dec. 2, 2023, Israeli troops entered a private home in Gaza City that had a room full of boxes bearing the UNRWA logo. Underneath the UN-labeled boxes were dozens of rockets, mortars, and other explosives. This does not prove that the UN supported terrorists, but there is other evidence that does.)

(My opinion: It would be a grave mistake for Israel and/or world leaders to allow the UN to establish a new government in Gaza.)

Two, concerning peace in the Middle East and who governs Gaza after the Israel-Hamas war is over: on Nov. 27, 2023, the EU foreign affairs chief met with the heads of several Arab nations to discuss the issue.

They agreed (without seeking Israel’s opinion) that the two-state solution should be adopted, and the Palestinian Authority should rule over the Palestinian part with the assistance of the international community.

There are different opinions of what the two-state solution means, but it often means the Palestinian Authority should get the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and a capital in East Jerusalem.

The current head of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, denies that the Holocaust ever happened, and he refuses to condemn Hamas for burning Jews alive, beheading babies, raping women and girls, seizing child hostages, etc.

Why would anyone wonder why God is on Israel’s side?

Three, concerning the decline of America, pestilences, and a population decrease: on Nov. 27, 2023, a U.S. Navy Health Administrator and recruiter posted a video on X that says, “The U.S. military has experienced a major increase in heart-related issues with helicopter and fixed-wing pilots” since the beginning of 2022, and he added that the major increase is vax-related (due to Covid-19 vaccinations).

(More: On Nov. 30, 2023, the state of Texas sued Pfizer for intentionally misrepresenting the facts (deliberately lying) and trying to censor the truth about the effectiveness of its Covid-19 vaccine. Pfizer contends that its vaccine is safe and effective and the Texas suit has no merit.)

Four, concerning the decline of America and a borderless world government: on Nov. 30, 2023, it was reported that more than 9,400 illegal aliens had arrived at the U.S. border with Mexico in the last 24 hours.

More than 5,800 were released right away.

According to the report, an estimated 10 million illegal immigrants have entered the U.S. since Biden became president.

Many get food, housing, a check, free healthcare, free education if needed, etc.

(More: On Nov. 30, 2023, it was reported that a Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) found that the U.S. Border Patrol is coordinating many of these crossings with the Mexican government.)

(More: On Nov. 30, 2023, it was reported that New York Mayor Adams is cutting his fire department budget and his police budget—in spite of rampant crime—to provide funds for illegal immigrants.)

(More: On Dec. 4, 2023, German Cardinal Muller said, “Mass migration is not about helping people but about destroying national identity.”)

Five, concerning corruption in Washington, in the FBI, and a stolen 2020 election: on Nov 29, 2023, Congressman Clay Higgins confirmed something some of the J6 political prisoners have been saying.

Higgins said, “The FBI was not only involved in the actions on January 6 from within, they had, I suspect, over 200 agents embedded within the crowd, including agents or, as they would call, human assets inside the Capitol dressed as Trump supporters before the doors were opened.”

Six, concerning a departure from the faith and the coming false religious system: starting in the fall of 2024, St. Mary’s College (an all-girls college in Notre Dame, Ind.) will allow men who identify as women to enroll in classes.

I wonder what they will do about the dorm rooms, bathrooms, and showers, and what the religious leaders, who do not know the difference between a man and a woman, earn.

Seven, on Nov. 29, 2023, at the age of 100, Henry Kissinger (a key leader of the global depopulation agenda; the man who chose Klaus Schwab to head the World Economic Forum) died.

It does not matter how powerful anyone is; the day will come when they must bow, confess, and account to God (Rom. 14:11-12).

Eight, on Nov. 30, 2023, the Russian Supreme Court ruled that the international LGBT social movement is extremist.

This should stop the group from working in Russia, but if they do not stop pushing the gay agenda, they could wind up in legal trouble.

Nine, last year, Pres. Biden sold 180 million barrels of oil from America’s strategic petroleum reserves.

On Dec. 1, 2023, he announced plans to buy 2.7 million barrels of oil to replace some of what he sold.

Oil dropped to $20 a barrel when Trump was Pres., and he wanted to buy 77 million barrels of oil and put it in the reserve, but Congress blocked him.

Biden is expected to pay about $79 a barrel for the oil he intends to buy.

Ten, concerning world government: the UN COP28 Conference (Conference of the Parties; 28th meeting) is taking place right now (Nov. 30, 2023 to Dec. 12, 2023).

As I understand it, the speeches are mostly deceptive junk science and scare tactics to “save the planet” (Mother Earth) from horrible natural disasters that are caused by burning coal, driving gas-powered vehicles, farmers using too much fertilizer, ranchers raising too many cows that pass gas, etc.

Behind the deception (called climate change) is a globalist effort to put a leash (global laws) on everyone on earth that will allow an unelected world government to monitor and control everything people do, or remove them (population reduction) from society.

The idea is to close all the coal mines; force people to drive electric vehicles, ride a bicycle or walk; force farmers to use less fertilizer and produce less food; create a meatless society, and force people to eat bugs and worms, etc.

The current meeting will include an effort to get the nations to speed up their agenda and bring it to pass by 2030 or sooner.

Eleven, here are some daily updates on the war:

Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2023 (Day 54): Day six of the ceasefire; Second day of the extended ceasefire.

  • Hamas released 10 more Israeli hostages and 4 more foreigners.
  • Israel and Hamas agreed to extend the ceasefire, and Hamas agreed to release 20 more hostages over the next 2 days.
  • A U.S. destroyer shot down a drone that they believe was launched by Houthis in Yemen that support Hamas.
  • It was reported that Israel has been allowing the International Red Cross (IRC) to visit Palestinian prisoners, but Hamas not only did not allow the IRC to visit Israeli hostages, the IRC also would not even try to visit them. The son of one hostage who wanted the IRC to take desperately needed medicine to his mom and was refused asked, “Why are they there if they don’t do anything?”
  • The UN said it will investigate reports that Hamas troops subjected women and girls to sexual violence when they invaded Israel on Oct. 7. Israel believes the UN already has proof and it needs to act, not investigate.

Thursday, Nov. 30, 2023 (Day 55): Day seven of the ceasefire; Third day of an extended ceasefire.

  • Officials in the U.S. and Israel have explored the idea of expelling thousands of low-ranking members of Hamas to countries such as Turkey, Qatar, Iran, Russia, and Lebanon (if Hamas will agree to go and if those countries will take them).
  • Hamas’ collection of hostages is decreasing, so Hamas is expected to increase its demands if they are to keep releasing them.
  • Netanyahu must decide if he will try to get the remaining hostages at a greater price or go back to war.
  • The Biden administration is looking for ways to stop Netanyahu from keeping his promise to destroy Hamas.
  • Hamas released 8 Israeli hostages and launched rockets toward Israel.

  • Israel accused Hamas of breaking the ceasefire by not releasing enough hostages and firing rockets at Israel.
  • S. Sec. of State Blinken said Hamas fired rockets into Israel while the ceasefire was still in effect.
  • The ceasefire has ended.

  • Israeli jets quickly struck about 200 terror targets, and Hamas claimed that more than 170 people were killed.
  • Hezbollah, which is armed and paid by Iran, fired several rockets into Israel from Lebanon.
  • 6 hostages have died in captivity (Hamas and other terrorist groups are still holding about 136 hostages. A total of 105 have been released).
  • The U.S., EU, and others are planning to strongly push the two-state solution (a fake peace treaty) after the Israeli-Hamas war is over.

Saturday, Dec. 2, 2023 (Day 57): The second day of the resumed war.

  • Israel said Hamas had agreed to release all women and child hostages during the ceasefire, but they restarted the war before doing that.
  • An Israeli doctor said the child hostages that Hamas held were severely abused psychologically and in other ways.
  • Israeli jets attacked Hamas strongholds in southern Gaza.
  • Early in the war, many Palestinians left northern Gaza and went to Khan Younis, but Hamas moved their temporary headquarters there to hide among the displaced citizens.
  • Israel declared Khan Younis a war zone, and Israeli Jets struck the city 50 times.
  • Hamas claims 15,200 people have been killed and 40,000 have been wounded since the war began (their numbers are unsubstantiated).

  • Israel notified the Arab nations that it wants a buffer zone between Gaza and Israel when the war is over.
  • US Vice President Kamala Harris said that “under no circumstances will the United States permit the forced relocation of Palestinians from Gaza or the West Bank, the besiegement of Gaza, or the redrawing of the borders of Gaza.”
  • Netanyahu said he will not allow the PA to return to power after the war is over. He said the PA does not fight terrorists; it calls for the destruction of Israel, so a different kind of government is needed.

Sunday, Dec. 3, 2023 (Day 58): The third day of the resumed war.

  • Israeli troops have found about 800 tunnel shafts in Gaza and destroyed about 500 of them.
  • Israel’s ground operation was expanded to every part of Gaza.
  • The UN estimated that 1,800,000 Palestinians had been displaced.

Monday, Dec. 4, 2023 (Day 59): The fourth day of the resumed war.

  • A rocket (likely fired by Hamas) struck an Israeli military base where fuel and nuclear-capable missiles are kept. It caused a fire that burned about 40 acres before it was put out.

  • Israel is preparing to flood tunnels with seawater.

FYI: God does not send anyone to Hell (all of us are born with a sin nature and destined to go to Hell because we sin), but God has provided a way (Jesus) for everyone to go to Heaven (and He is the only way to get there; John 14:6).

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
