‘Most evangelical Christians intimidated into silence’ on Israel-Hamas war, pastor says:

Most evangelical Christians around the world are being intimidated into silence by a vociferous “social justice” camp that is fanning a false narrative on Israel’s war against Hamas in Gaza and being presented by the global media, the head of a Jerusalem-based evangelical organization said this week ahead of Easter Sunday.

“The Evangelical Church is at a crossroads now,” Fast, who heads the Bridges for Peace Ministry in Jerusalem, told JNS in a pre-Easter interview. “The Church is being tested.”

The evangelical leader said that it was critical for Christians to make their voices heard at a time of darkness when the world is minimizing the Oct. 7 Hamas massacre, which triggered the nearly six-month-old war against the Islamist terror group, and denying the Biblical roots of the Jewish people to their ancient homeland.

The evangelical pastor said that an unrelenting “social justice” campaign hijacked by radical anti-Israel elements and both public and online antisemitic activists coupled with a toxic mix of growing bible illiteracy in the West has permeated the mainstream into silence or indifference.

“Most evangelical Christians are being intimidated into silence, and we have to encourage them to speak out,” he said, decrying that “the biblical worldview is being twisted and shattered.”

“A society that allows antisemitism to exist is morally corrupt,” he said.  “Those who self-censor and remain quiet will be rendered insignificant.”

We Are Just One Step Away From An Apocalyptic War In The Middle East:

Did you see what just happened in Damascus?  In an absolutely stunning move, Israel took out the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.  Needless to say, the Iranians are absolutely furious and they are promising a “harsh” response.  For a long time, I have been warning my readers that an apocalyptic war in the Middle East will be one of the conflicts that defines World War III.  The good news is that the war in the Middle East has not escalated to an apocalyptic level yet.  But after what we witnessed on Monday, we are just one step away.

The building that was destroyed by the IDF airstrike was reportedly directly next to Iran’s embassy in Damascus…  It appears that the IDF was targeting a gathering of very important regional leaders.

This was a major victory for Israel, but the Iranians will inevitably respond.  In fact, Iran’s ambassador to Syria has already publicly stated that the response will be “harsh”

We shall see what Iran chooses to do.  As Zero Hedge has aptly noted, if Iran’s response is too severe, it could spark “an all-out regional war”…  Unfortunately, most people in the western world have no idea how bad this war in the Middle East is going to become.

Amir Tsarfati:

Israeli officials to the New York Times: The target that was hit in Damascus is the headquarters of the Revolutionary Guards and not a consular office. The attack hit a military target and not a diplomatic target.
.....
BREAKING: The American base in al-Tanf in southeastern Syria was attacked by a number of suicide drones.
.....
Iran's National Security Council is holding an emergency meeting to discuss a response to the attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus.
.....
There are details that I can’t expose regarding the reasons for the Israeli strike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus.
Let’s say that the Iranian proxies have crossed the line in the past few days both in attacks on northern Israel and in the south by the Red Sea.
.....
"The world has fallen victim to disinformation & not having a reality of the challenges in dense urban combat...it doesn't fit the narrative...& all the efforts the IDF took to minimize casualties...irrelevant of the actions of Hamas" (Col. John Spencer, urban warfare expert)

May God keep and bless Iarael as she plays out her final role in history and may the Will of God be done first and foremost.

As war rages, why are Israelis searching for God, and even considering Jesus?

This Easter week on THE ROSENBERG REPORT, Joel interviews head of the Israeli Bible Society:

Every year, tens of thousands of Christians visit the Garden Tomb – that is, the empty tom – in Jerusalem to reflect on the life, death, and miraculous resurrection of Jesus. 

But this year, with Israel engaged in a brutal war against Hamas in Gaza for almost six months, more and more Israeli Jews than ever before are wrestling with existential questions.

They’re asking about life and death and life after death – and even whether Jesus of Nazareth might, in fact, be the Jewish Messiah. 

Walking through the grounds of the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, including going inside the empty tomb of Jesus,  Rosenberg interviews Victor Kalisher, a prominent Messianic Jewish leader in Israel and the head of the Israeli Bible Society.

Kalisher – the son of a Holocaust survivor and born into one of the most prominent and influential Messianic Jewish families in all of Israel – gives a fascinating explanation of why many Jews don’t believe that Jesus is the Messiah but also why more Jews than ever do believe.

Kalisher told Rosenberg that the resurrection of Jesus is the central claim of the New Testament. 

He also noted that the Apostle Paul wrote that if Jesus did not rise from the dead then the faith of Christians and Messianic Jews is in vain.

"It is written that He appeared at one time before 500 people and He appeared on different occasions to make sure that the fact of the resurrection will be known [widely], that it will be [known as] a historic fact.,” he told Rosenberg. 

In 1948, the year that the State of Israel was established, only 23 Israeli Jews in the nation believed that Jesus is the Messiah.  Worldwide in 1948, fewer than 2,000 Jews believed that Jesus is the Messiah.

Today, studies show that between 15,000 and 30,000 Israeli Jews follow Jesus. Across the world, almost one million Jews are followers of Jesus. 

Both Rosenberg and Kalisher have noticed that there has been an increasing openness about Jesus in Israel in recent years.

More Israelis seem to be open to asking questions about Jesus and who He really is. 

“I think that there is much greater openness and seeking [in recent decades], especially now in this time of war,” Kalisher said.

Biden Uses Aid Tragedy to Blame Israel for Civilian Deaths; Hamas Off the Hook:

President Joe Biden issued a statement late Tuesday in response to the accidental killing of seven aid workers in Gaza by an Israel airstrike, blaming Israel for aid distribution problems and claiming Israel is not doing enough to protect civilians.

Biden’s statement barely mentioned Hamas — neither its tactic of using civilians as human shields, nor its practice of stealing humanitarian aid. (The tragic airstrike was targeting an armed Hamas member who was not present.)

The Chief of Staff of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi, apologized publicly in a video statement, saying that the airstrike, which hit a World Central Kitchen (WCK) convoy, had been a case of mistaken identity.

“I want to be very clear—the strike was not carried out with the intention of harming WCK aid workers. It was a mistake that followed a misidentification–at night during a war in very complex conditions. It shouldn’t have happened.”

Amir Tsarfati:

Senior CIA officials informed Israel that Iran would attack areas of Israel in the next 48 hours.
The scenarios speak of a combined attack by a swarm of drones and cruise missiles that will be launched directly from Iran to strategic sites.
.....
Russians are in Syria’s Golan not far from Israel’s border.
.....
Israeli Air Force is at the highest state of alert.
.....
In preparation for a possible Iranian revenge: The IDF decided to recruit reservists for the air defense systems.
.....
A VERY TENSE NIGHT AHEAD OF US ALL HERE IN ISRAEL.
“Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.”
.....
Telegram channels that allegedly show panic in Israel, traffic jams and Israelis sitting in bomb shelters are simply reporting fake news! Stay away from them!

Biden Demands ‘Immediate Ceasefire’ from Netanyahu in Phone Call:

President Joe Biden demanded an “immediate ceasefire” from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a phone call on Thursday between the two leaders, threatening a loss of U.S. support for the war if Israel does not comply.

In a press briefing, White House national security spokesperson John Kirby would not state what the consequences would be, specifically, if Israel did not make the changes Biden had demanded.

Kirby said that the accidental killing of seven World Central Kitchen workers in an airstrike earlier in the week was one of the more important factors in pushing Biden toward the demand for a ceasefire, which he had long resisted.

The effect of Biden’s demand is that Israel will find it extremely difficult to achieve its war goals. If it chooses to pursue the last Hamas battalions in Rafah, it will do so without U.S. support. And if it tries to reach a hostage deal, Israel will have to do so without the leverage of U.S. support for continued military operations against Hamas in Gaza.

@patrician Never mind the horrific attack on Israel last October! Eventually the Lord’s patience will end. And it won’t be pretty.
