Viewing a moving presentation on Israel and Psalm 83:
Christian leader Grant Berry, founder of Reconnecting Ministries, has published a piece about Romans 11, pondering whether the New Testament chapter is the "key to the end times."
It's a biblical chapter that has served as a point of debate surrounding modern-day Israel's potential role in biblical prophecy.
Attorney and Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz appeared on Fox & Friends to speak about free speech on campus and explained that he need armed guards when he speaks about Israel at universities.
According to the father of the San Bernardino terrorist, Syed Rizwan Farook, his son was "obsessed with Israel."
In an interview in the Italian newspaper La Stampa, the senior Syed Farook said, "My son said that he shared [Islamic State leader] Al Baghdadi's ideology and supported the creation of the Islamic State. He was also obsessed with Israel."
But I think that Israeli Jews are beginning to be able to discern the Evangelicals from all others at last. They see that there are certain Christians who really love Israel. Bibi knows it and many others too. I think this will be used by the Lord to bring more and more Jews to know Him.
I have written in many articles that I firmly believe that Pope Francis is the False Prophet spoken of in God's Word. A statement by him confirms my belief a hundred fold.
In the last week, the pope announced to the world that Jews do not need Christ to go to heaven – a fierce lie directly from the pit of hell. Satan is pleased.
Israel's Rejection Not Total
"I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel, saying, "Lord, they have killed Your prophets and torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life"? But what does the divine response say to him? "I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal." Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work.
Every time Obama has sided with the mullahs against domestic opponents he has played the Jew card in one way or another. He has blown more anti-Semitic dog whistles than many in Washington even realized existed.
Three scenarios of attack seem possible:
Aerial. Airplanes crossed international boundaries and dropped bombs in the 1981 Israeli attack on an Iraqi nuclear installation and in the 2007 attack on a Syrian one, making this the default assumption for Iran. Studies show this to be difficult but attainable. Alternatively, bombs can be delivered via rockets.
If there's one thing that's guaranteed to get me more fired up than those who apply the word "escapism" to pretribulationism, it is those who deny national Israel has a future in God's plan in the face of all the biblical evidence for it.
I've come to suspect that much of the opposition against dispensationalism, premillennialism and even pretribulationism stems from how some people view Israel. Those who hold to Replacement Theology (or supersessionism) often remark that we show "too much interest" in Israel and prophecy. They say we do so at the detriment of the gospel.
Not only had those two horrors occurred on that day, but there have been many,many other incredibly horribly occurrences which concern the Jewish people,on this same calendar day through history.
Incredibly , it was on the ninth of Av that . . .
