A Further Observation to His Post in View of the Continuing Advancement to the Inevitable

Reader comment on item: Prepare to attack [Iran]
in response to reader comment: you can not stop the inevitable

Now the discussion has strayed from the original premise, that there is preparation afoot against the declared intentions of Iran to achieve parity in the Middle East, both politically and militarily. From an outsider's point of view, it is a natural thing, since it cannot be easy to be making the threats against Israel that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad does without having the firepower to back it up. So we see a stalling tactic of empty threat making, but the supposition is that he intends to make good on it, and that is what Israel is preparing for.

Now we read that if, as it is being prognosticated by the ministers of the Islamic Revolution, an interdiction action to neutralize the perceived threat is taken, the American interests around the Iranian hot zone will be targeted along with responses to Israel in the form of ballistic missile assaults, not that the Iranian ordnance found in attacks on Iraq or Sderot is any real indication of what Iran is really preparing for. One wonders if the other Islamic governments are on board with the current scenario, for the livelihood is on the firing line as well when one considers how much is being exported. Iran is not allowing these others to prepare for that inevitably either, but it seems they must. This appears also to be an inevitability.

Really, the other factor not in exposure in all of this is the timing. Hizbollah and Hamas are as ready as they can be to perpetrate the plan of action. Syria is adopting a waiting position, ready to take the Golan when the opportunity presents. The United Nations sits obliviously to the situation, not really prepared for their part in all of this. And one has to wonder as well what is realy being discussed at the G8 Summit, since everyone there either has a stake in what is going on, or has some other unknown interest. If someone were to start something around, say, Tisha B'av , it is likely to put a damper on the Olympics; but maybe they'll wait for that. When will be the next intifada, anyone?

The has been a lot of back and forth between this reader about the Hebrew Holy Scriptures and those who continue to try and challenge the circumstance surrounding Israel according to her destiny as promised in the Holy Bible. Israel is not going to be replaced like so many (such as President Ahmadinejad) want to say. The displacement era was over in 1948, and the Biblical imperative is for Israel to remain and be conditioned to receive her LORD when He returns. No Road Map to Peace is going to effectively keep that from happening, for the land is promised to Abraham through the sons of the promise, Isaac and his son Jacob (Israel), and look, just like Ezekiel prophesied, there Israel is, just as exactly as it is written.

The world is in the tragic throes of its unbelief, and the events being prepared for are going to take their toll in judgment. Only in trusting by faith in Jesus Christ is any of this going to make sense, for all the rest of the world's philosophical line of reasoning and logic struggles in confusion as these events unveil the truth contained in the Holy Bible. Believing in Jesus Christ, understanding the Word of the LORD as spoken by Almighty God the Father as it is performed by the Holy Spirit is the only way anyone is going to get through this life and attain the promise of eternal life when the world is preparing for its inevitable judgment for unbelief.

The Revelation of Yeshua HaMashiach to John tells us that Yeshua is at the door, knocking, ready to enter into anyone's life that is ready to ask for forgiveness of their sins and accept Him into their hearts. In the final analysis, that is the true preparation that needs to happen, to believe that Jesus Christ died for the sins of those who accept Him as their Savior, for when HaMashiach, the Messiah does return, it will be to hearts that have already prepared to meet Him in His glory as He brings His Kingdom of Almighty God and Heaven to here on earth, just as the Hebrew Holy Scriptures says He will.
