Signposts on the road to Armageddon: Giving thanks for life

MERIDIAN —    We have discussed the Bible definition that God is life. All creation values the gift of life with the exception of some Kamikaze beliefs in various countries of the world. Sometimes life is sacrificed in exchange for others to celebrate the enormous benefits of love. Jesus said, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

    The war on terrorism began when self-serving men decided to take advantage of weaker individuals. This idea of control, slavery and rule has never been the plan of Jehovah God. However, other countries, continents and religions have embraced this pseudo intellectualism of the socialist left and communism’s belief that there is something better for the masses by redistribution. Psalm 103:4 says God “redeems your life from destruction.”  God “executes righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.”  

    Ever since Israel gave life to Gaza in 2005 the demon mind of the Muslim Snake has rained rockets, mortars and missiles into southern Israel, Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem. Israel has only responded in a limited way until the Gaza air invasion.  But now, the Prime Minister has made the decision to cut off the head of the snake.  A top Israeli defense official says, “Gaza is being flooded with sophisticated weapons from Libya and that the anti-aircraft missile fired last week at an Israeli helicopter likely originated there.”  

    The Israeli prime minister and president met on Friday in light of the Gaza escalation. To quote Netanyahu: "Hamas deliberately targets our children…We are going to continue hitting Hamas hard.”  

    In addition, Israel has raised the number of reservists for a possible Gaza ground operation to 75,000 men as the Arabs continue their threat of destruction.  (NLT)  Zechariah 12:3 states, “In that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves.”  

    What does this mean to America today? America has already placed itself in captivity by debt where “the borrower is subject to the lender.” (Proverbs 22:7)  America has been hurled over the fiscal cliff with very little room to recover. This means a gradual reduction in the military might, continued inability to create jobs and unemployment will escalate to mass public confusion.  

    Politicians will caution that at the worst inflation with more taxes is likely to happen. After all this is the strongest nation in the world. However, if we follow the time line of the Bible human wisdom may only delay as God directs the plan.   

    Inflation will run rampant with time until we reach Revelation 6:6 when it will take a day’s wages for a loaf of bread.

    Some American president will say to the northern army hoard invading Israel. “Art thou come to take a spoil?” (Ezekiel 38:13) To His faithful, God will say, Hold on! 1 Thessalonians 5:9 “For God did not appoint us to wrath. He did not select us to condemn us.”  

    Amos 9:11-15 states, “in that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David...and build the ruins as in the days of old. I will bring back my people … and they will no more be torn up out of their land which I gave them.”  

    And God gave the land to Israel in one day, May 15, 1948.
