Misdirected Comments Cannot Hide the Truth - the Provocation is Already There

Reader comment on item: Must Counterinsurgency Wars Fail?
in response to reader comment: What provocation?

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Oct 13, 2008 at 19:02

Only in the misdirected observations of what has been written in the previous post do we see that the previous person has/had no clue about what is inevitably coming.

First, this reader did not make any observation about Acre as a specific provocation to coming events. That Acre is a hotbed of religous fervor is unmstakable, yet it is not going to be the sole reason for Biblical expectations.

Next, this reader has never specifically identifed any individual as the man of sin as specfified in Daniel, nor in any other part of the Bible, as you try to allude that Yeshua HaMashiach does. Even though He knows who it is, He did not. The anti-Christ in Biblical terms, at this juncture of time, could be anybody, the true identity not to be revealed until (oh, this must mean you must be convinced of the provisions of the letters to the Thessalonians by Paul to understand) after the removal of the true Church.

Now, you are correct in understanding that Israel must exist for the events about to transpire, though were it in the power of, say the President of Iran, or K. Maschall(sp), H. Nasrallah or Haniyeh, Israel would cease to exist for Islam to dominate the world. You have to admit they have said that.

We digress, for previously, you, like so many who have to fear the possibility that the Holy Bible is true to its Word, the promise to the believing disciple of Yeshua HaMashiach is that He returns, initially to call the Church out to Himself, then again in seven years to conquer the armies of the Adversary's rebellion and assume the throne in Jerusalem.

You have no words that have any power to assure me of anything that contradicts the Holy Bible, for in ther power of the Holy Spirit I have, as well as any true believer in Yeshua HaMashiach, His perfect assurance that His WORD will return to Him in truth. His shed blood has paid for that and it cannot be revoked, not by you; not by any person, power or thing. By the way, that is eternal power from His endless resources, which cannot be depleted. That assurance is within each and everyone of faith in Yeshua HaMashiach and the expectation of His return is founded in His Word, as validated by the fulfillment of the prophecies concerning Israel.

It is very interesting that Islam has begun the process of trying to make identification with Yeshua (or maybe it has tried all along, the world not taking notice until now when it is convinced a stand needs to taken against the the WORD of the LORD). It is further interesting that you make it out like there are no armies at Islam's beckon call, for you very well know that the entire body of Muslims that follow the Quran are called to be in the Islamic Prophet's army, or fall aside as an unbeliever.

Who do think these people are going to follow after the Church of true believers are removed?

Finally, I am no one of any concern to be worthy to explain the wishes of Almighty God, only to witness what He has revealed in His Word to true believers in Him in faith. Only in the Holy Bible are the Words of His promises, His mercy for those who will believe in Him, and His truth when he arrives in judgment.

If a person fails to see that truth and decides in unbelief, just as the Islamic Prophet had written, to turn away from the WORD of the LORD, then he/she will still face Yeshua, only not in mercy, but in judgment when He is on the White Throne. Believe in the LORD Yeshua HaMashiach while you still can to be saved from that inevitability.

Post Script: Provocation? It has already started and many, if not most, have missed it in unbelief.
