My friend Michael;
My first though was to quip: instead this is Part One:

We approach our common faith from sometimes differing positions for a variety of reasons, but by remembering the central faith comes from a relationship with Jesus Christ, the truth of Him who is sought out with diligence in the Holy Spirit is made plain and will be the true source of victory in Him.

I have read a little about Afrin, the tragic circumstances of the hospital attack and find it is yet more evidence that an unbelieving world (some with an appearance of religious appearance) does not yet understand what is transpiring before their eyes and will not come to the knowledge of Truth; so many are left to endure consequences and no consolation for the lack of the love of God: so much for Islam.

Monotheism from the Biblical perspective is yet to be fully understood, especially for those who have studied the Bible from a mortal perspective that lacks true spiritual influences. In the beginning, Elohim......; from the beginning of understanding the Triune aspect of Him who created us has always inferred His Personality, His Personhood, is to be addressed as He has determined; Isaiah 9:6,7.

So, we mention His government, the True source of all government; and if we are to be true to Him in response, we do ourselves no favor listening to those who either have no idea of how to live a righteous life; or in the contravening ideology of knowing but not believing, leaving themselves prone to judgment

My perception about this is to have those who would know such things seek the Holy Spirit read all the prophetic pronouncements in concert with those scriptures that speak to the happening today. Which governments are following their specific functions as determined in scripture and which ones are on the path to destruction because they erroneously believe they know better than the Eternal Sovereign how things are going to be resolved the LORD's way?

Scriptures are implicit: if the LORD is already in Zion (Sion), who is going to dislodge Him from there. [Zephaniah]

To that tune, if one were to read the background implications of Psalm 83, (there are books on that-Jonathan C has one), PA Leader Abbas just uttered a fulfillment in response to President Trump's declaration. Folks; the fuse is lit; thank Abbas for that. Turkey in support of the hordes are going to resent that Abbas did that. The only question is how much time will it take.

Oh well.

Blessed is He that ordained all things for His Glory......

Submitting....
