The Middle East War Begins

ISRAEL - With elections looming on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is warning that Israel has “no other choice” other than to invade Gaza in order to overthrow the Hamas regime in power there. In fact, the Jerusalem Post is reporting that on Friday Netanyahu said that war “could happen at any moment”.

The Prime Minister and other Israeli officials are sick and tired of rockets being constantly fired into Israel, and they have come to the conclusion that a peaceful resolution with Hamas is simply not possible. Here in the United States many on the left will criticize Israel for taking military action, but how long would any US president wait before taking military action against a terror group that was firing missiles at us? The truth is that Israel has been exceedingly patient with the situation in Gaza, but now the time for patience has run out.

Of course this could potentially spark a much wider regional war. Israel and Hezbollah have literally been on the brink of war for months, and so if a major conflict erupts it is easy to envision Hezbollah jumping in to aid their allies in the south. Right now, Hezbollah has approximately 150,000 missiles pointed at Israel, and their troops are battle-hardened after fighting for many years in Syria. And if Israel and Hezbollah go to war, there is a very strong possibility that Iran could get involved as well.

Basically we are just a hop, skip and jump away from a cataclysmic war in the Middle East, and this is one of the reasons why Israel has shown so much restraint. But at some point action must be taken. No nation is going to allow terrorist organizations to keep firing rockets at their citizens indefinitely, and the Israeli government has had enough.

And let us also hope that it can be postponed until after the upcoming Jewish holidays. But it is coming, and once Israeli tanks roll into Gaza everything will change. Global events are about to accelerate significantly, and so many of the things that we have been watching for are about to happen. Both sides have been preparing for this war for a very long time, and the death and destruction will be immense.

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
