Precursor Shown in 1973 - Circumstances Today Following Their Own Patterns

Reader comment on item: Reflections on Current Hamas-Israel Hostilities
in response to reader comment: 1973 repeat?

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Nov 16, 2012 at 18:24

In this opinion, 1973 was a precursor, the arrogance of the Arabic sentiments of the time hedged by Russian political/military backing which backfired due to the Biblical implications that you cannot mess with Israel without arousing the issues of judgment for messing with the apple of Almighty God's eye. Why it did not escalate to full-fledged world war at that time is implicit in Scripture; the bowls of judgment weren't quite so full then: they are brimming now.

All things are being orchestrated just exactly as the Scriptures have indicated; all one need do is follow the pattern as outlined in Daniel and Jesus' Temple Mount dissertation, cross reference to the corroborating passages (Gaza, for example, Zephaniah 2 and of course Ezekiel 37-39), watch as the Eternal Sovereign performs His will and be ready for the witness we are called to provide.

You mention Syria as I have; convincingly, it appears to be the center of the next issues facing Israel. Read Isaiah 17 about Damascus, a city I am told has been continuously occupied for centuries.
