The God Factor :: By Daymond Duck

About one week after Israel left Egypt under the leadership of Moses, an estimated two and one-half million unarmed Jewish men, women, and children found themselves camped out at the Red Sea with Pharaoh and a hostile, well-armed, well-trained Egyptian army and 600 horse-drawn chariots approaching them from behind.

The Jews were sore afraid, and they asked Moses if he brought them there to die.

  • “And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will show to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace” (Ex. 14:13-14).

Moses said (in my words), you see Pharaoh and his Egyptian army now, but after today, you will never see them again.

God parted the waters of the Red Sea, the Jews crossed to the other side on dry ground, Pharaoh and his troops followed, the Sea closed, and Pharaoh and his army drowned.

This is the God factor: God delivered the unarmed Jews from Pharaoh and his highly-trained, well-armed Egyptian army in one day.

In one day,

  • God stopped construction on the Tower of Babel, confused the people’s language, and scattered them around the world.
  • God destroyed Sodom, Gomorrah, and all the cities around them.
  • God caused the walls of Jericho to collapse (after the seventh trip on the seventh day).
  • God caused the fortified city of Babylon to fall.
  • God delivered multitudes from sin when Jesus died on the cross.
  • God brought the nation of Israel back into being.

In one day,

  • God will change the world with the Battle of Gog and Magog.
  • God will change the world with the Rapture of the Church.
  • God will change the world with the confirmation of a covenant with many for 7-years of peace in the Middle East.
  • God will change the world with the Second Coming of Jesus.

Do not overlook the God factor.

God can change the world in the blink of an eye anytime He chooses.

The world is not controlled by the U.S., UN, international community, Islam, China, or any other entity.

It is controlled by the God that spoke it into existence, and it looks like He is preparing to act in a big way.

Here are other recent events that seem to indicate that the end of the age is close.

One, concerning corruption in the United Nations: on May 9, 2024, it was reported that a Palestinian group said UNWRA staff members are stealing humanitarian aid and selling it out of their homes and at the door of UNWRA-run schools.

According to the group, citizens who report the UNWRA face reprisals.

Two, concerning deceit: Biden says he supports Israel, he has Israel’s back, his commitment to Israel is ironclad, the U.S. is Israel’s staunchest ally, etc., but he publicly criticizes Netanyahu, he is trying to bring down Netanyahu’s government, he refused to veto the UN resolution to condemn Israel, he is holding up weapons shipments to Israel, he is demanding that Israel not invade Rafah, he is demanding that Israel must prevent the accidental death of Palestinians, he is pushing the Two-State solution to divide Israel, he sanctioned Israeli soldiers who were fighting terrorists in Judea and Samaria, and more.

Biden’s actions – stabbing Israel in the back during a time of war – show disdain for Israel and support for Hamas.

Hamas doesn’t need to release the hostages or stop attacking Israel or sign a ceasefire because Biden is protecting Hamas.

(Question: On May 8, 2024, it was reported that the Israeli seizure of the Rafah border crossing had cut off a major Hamas supply line from Egypt. Why does Biden want this major terrorist supply line kept open?)

(Question: On May 9, Israel’s ambassador to the UN said Biden’s decision to withhold weapons shipments is strengthening Israel’s enemies. Why is Biden strengthening Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran, etc.?)

(More: Biden – the Big Guy in the Hunter Biden Burisma scandal – has no problem supporting the corrupt government of Ukraine and supplying them with weapons and bombs, but he has a problem with supporting the government of Israel. His actions defy his claim that he has Israel’s back.)

(Amir Tsarfati’s opinion: Letting Hamas survive will open the door for another Oct.7 attack on Israel in the future.)

(More: On May 10, 2024, 26 Democrat members of Congress sent a letter to the U.S. National Security Advisor urging the U.S. to resume the delivery of security aid to Israel.)

(More: On May 12, 2024, Biden was blasted for withholding intelligence information on the location of Hamas leaders and possibly several hostages, including some U.S. citizens, from Israel. One Jewish writer asked if a friend or ally of Israel would treat Israel this way.)

(More: On May 13, 2024, Biden’s Sec. of State urged Israel to get out of Gaza.)

(More: On May 13, 2024, Biden said he will move forward on the approval process for a $1 billion shipment of weapons to Israel. This is not approval and shipment, but it is a step in that direction. It will also not include 2,000-pound precision bombs.)

(My opinion: God has Israel’s back. I am calling it The God Factor in this article. Israel needs to trust in Jesus instead of Biden, who betrayed America’s troops and abandoned about $80 billion worth of weapons to Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan.)

Three, concerning a curse on those that curse Israel: on May 9, 2024, it was reported that there has been a multi-day, multi-state outbreak of severe weather (920 reports of tornados, high winds, heavy rain, flooding, hail, etc. in 72 hours) in the southeast U.S. (and more to come in the next 2 days).

(More: A report on May 8, 2024, said the U.S. has been hit with 7 disasters in 2024 that cost more than one billion dollars each.)

(My opinion: This could be the God Factor: God’s curse on those who curse Israel.)

Four, on May 10, 2024, Gary Bauer (Campaign for Working Families) wrote:

  • Joe Biden removed sanctions on the Houthi terrorists.
  • He removed sanctions on Qatar, which supports Hamas, and Lebanon, which supports Hezbollah.
  • He removed sanctions on the terrorist Iranian regime.
  • He removed sanctions against the Marxist Venezuelan regime.
  • But he is now imposing sanctions on our democratic ally, Israel.
  • Ponder that for a moment.

Five, concerning Israel’s war with Hamas spreading to other nations: on May 10, 2024, it was reported that:

  • The Jewish Institute for National Security of America warned that Iran and its proxies are watching closely to see if the United States will abandon its ally.

The Bible clearly teaches that the nations (this includes the U.S.) will abandon Israel when it is attacked by Russia, Iran, Turkey, etc., in the Battle of Gog and Magog.

It also plainly teaches that God will defend Israel (The God Factor), and He will receive the glory.

(FYI: On May 10, 2024, an Iranian lawmaker said Iran has nuclear weapons. If this is true, God could soon change things in the Middle East in one day.)

Six, concerning Biden’s abandonment of Israel: on May 10, 2024, The Jewish News Syndicate (JNS) reported that 80 former U.S. generals and admirals posted an open letter that said:

  • We are very concerned about the security impacts of increasingly strained U.S.-Israel ties as Israel becomes a growing source of domestic division.
  • We feel compelled to declare that a strong Israel is vital to the United States’ national security, and it is imperative that America unequivocally stand by this indispensable ally.

As I see it, these military experts believe a strong Israel is vital to U.S. national security, and Pres. Biden is trying to weaken Israel to appease terrorists.

He wants to weaken the U.S. and bring it into the New World Order, and weaken Israel and force it to accept the Two-State Solution.

Seven, concerning a departing from the faith or a falling away in the Church: on May 3, 2024, it was reported that 17 scholars and activists in the Roman Catholic Church signed a document that says Pope Francis has done great harm to the Church and the entire world.

They asked Pope Francis to resign, but if he refuses to resign, they requested that the cardinals and bishops ask him to resign before he does an even greater harm.

(More: On May 3, 2024, it was reported that the United Methodist Church (UMC) deleted the words “homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching” (and other statements) from its Book of Discipline – By-Laws – so they can approve of homosexual marriages and allow homosexuals to serve as clergy.)

(My opinion: Religious leaders can change their teachings to tickle people’s ears, but they can’t change what the Bible says or how God will respond.)

Eight, concerning the World Health Organization (WHO) Pandemic Treaty (Accord): on May 10, 2024, it was reported that the UK will not sign the treaty in its present form.

Officials have decided not to sign it because it requires them to give 10% of the medicines they produce to the WHO for distribution in poor countries (and to sell another 10% of the medicines they produce to the WHO at affordable prices).

Critics note that UK officials are not objecting to surrendering the UK’s sovereignty; they are refusing to give away and/or reduce the price of medicines.

Nine, concerning a U.S. economic collapse: America’s national debt is now $34.6 trillion and rising.

More than 6 months ago, the U.S. House of Representatives created a bipartisan committee to tackle the problem before it causes an economic collapse.

On May 10, 2024, it was reported that the committee has accomplished nothing, and it appears to be dead.

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin, who sponsored a bill in the Senate, said, “It’s a shame, $34.6 trillion in debt. No one cares about it.”

(More: On May 13, 2024, it was reported that the interest on America’s national debt for the first 7 months of fiscal year 2024 is $514 billion, and it is expected to keep increasing. Our own government says this is unsustainable, but those that can reduce spending aren’t doing it.)

Ten, concerning a borderless world government: on May 12, 2024, it was reported that the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) said the number of known suspected terrorists crossing America’s northern border continues to break records (143 apprehended in the first 6 months of this fiscal year).

(More: On the same day, it was reported that the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) said the Mexican Cartels have increased the amount of fentanyl in fake prescriptions, which makes them more deadly than ever.)

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.
