August 22,2011 Update on the Middle East by John McTernan
Events are heating up over Israel and I want to keep you on top of what is happening. It appears that Assad is trying to deflect world attention from Syria and towards Israel. No matter what happens with Israel, the Muslims are going to unite against it. Assad might even start a war to save his power in Syria. The tension is really building in Egypt and Lebanon against Israel. When Libya falls, it will accelerate the caliphate coming together. You can feel the Arab power growing against Israel. This is coming together with lightening speed with no sign of slowing down.
The Arabs have no idea that the Holy God of Israel is drawing them for judgment. As the caliphate gets stronger and stronger, their blood lust to destroy Israel will become uncontrollable. They will meet their doom at the hand of the Israelis. The war is really going to be allah verses the Holy God of Israel.
Remember, I have said this and will continue to say it, this war is NOT Armageddon. It is going to be so massive and destructive that people are going to think it was. The antichrist is going to arise from this war and the people will think he is a savior. This will set the stage for eventually worshiping him according to Revelation 13.
No matter what happens keep your eyes focused on the Lord Jesus Christ. He will never leave us nor forsake us. May the Lord God of Israel bless and protect you.
Daniel 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. (14) And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
Israel and the Middle East War
IDF strikes Hamas military installations in Gaza 08/21/11 This has the possibility to escalate very quickly. Egypt borders with Gaza and it would not take much for the Egyptians to rush to Hamas' defense. Anything can now set off the war.
'Escalation in south draws eyes away from Assad' 08/21/11 "An editorial in the London-based Al-sharq al-Awsat claimed Sunday that the multifocal terror attack near Eilat is a result of Syrian President Bashar Assad's attempt to divert attention from the uprising in his country and reduce international pressure on him and his regime."
Arab League, Jordan condemn Israel 'escalation' in Gaza 08/21/11 Jordan needs to be watched very closely as I believe it is going to become Israel's greatest enemy. Jordan will turn very quickly against Israel.
Egypt recalls ambassador to Israel over ambush 08/20/11 I fully expect the Camp David Accords of 1979 to come to an end real soon. Egypt will blame Israel and announce the accord has ended. Israel may have to move its army into the Sinai very quickly to stop Egypt from moving its army. This could escalate very quickly.
Israel faces growing hostility 08/21/11 The hostility will really increase when the caliphate begins to form. When Libya and Syria fall to the Muslim Brotherhood, events will really heat up. Jordan must join this caliphate and another country to watch is Saudi Arabia. It very well might be a part of this caliphate.
Libyan Rebels Reportedly Reach Western Outskirts of Tripoli 08/21/11 It appears that Qaddafi's days are numbered. It will take a while for the Brotherhood to gain control. The next to fall is Assad of Syria.
Abbas Wants Lebanese Flag Flying over Jerusalem 08/21/11 In the end, it is all going to boil down over Jerusalem. Islam cannot stand that Jerusalem is in the hands of Jews. It is a threat to the supremacy of allah over the Holy God of Israel. Jerusalem in Jewish control is going to be the focal point of the coming war. It might be the rallying cry for their Jihad. They will not survive this attempt to take Jerusalem.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction
