Those Who Do Not Understand Do Not for a Reason - They Will Not Believe

in response to reader comment: The question is not for those who understand, but for those who do not

Sara: your subject line already makes the distinction of who will listen to the reasoning that is now so Biblically focused in the events we see happening that the question is now answerable in fully expressed Biblical terms: who is listening to the LORD and who is not. Yeshua was asked the preliminary question after viewing the Temple we would never get to see: His answer is now being unfolded right before our very eyes; but delusion is causing those who remain skeptics to not realize that the very determination of their future lives and the quality of them is now being revealed.

What was thought to be some form of political solution for the PA (Two State-Road Map to Peace) to wrest away some Israeli territory for the sake of peace is now developing just as is prophesied to become a problem for the world on an extreme global scale. All of the malefactors named in Ezekiel's prophecy in chapters 37 through 39 ARE IN PLACE RIGHT NOW. The hook is exposed; the extemporaneous reasons for entering into the 'promised land' are being debated as this is being written. Israel's malefactors are acting just as is predicted.

There is little, if any, reason for Israel's enemies and antagonists to show restraint now; one big factor that was once the show of strength from the United States is being reduced to a heartless acknowledgment of Israel's right to defend itself-nothing more. In the reverse, there is discussion to limit the resources being made available to Israel as the preparations for escalation continue to mount from across Israel's borders. All this does is give Israel's enemies encouragement that started from the 2009 Cairo speech and continues in relentless fashion today.

What we see is the escalation of Zephaniah into Zechariah, of Isaiah's preliminary calls for Israel to turn to the LORD to the relentless excoriation of those reluctant to call upon the LORD; continuing the revelation of Daniel as it is being readied for the unveiling in the Revelation of John (the preliminaries of the Revelation's opening chapters already in place). Ultimately, Israel is being readied for the final acts in Scripture, that as they are targeted for increasing levels of hostilities from across the borders from which the shelters provide only nominal protection, there will come the apocalyptic moments that require shelter from the LORD.

Peace will only come when the LORD appears and takes possession of the Temple Mount; and that will only happen when Israel fulfills Yeshua's prophecy: "you shall not see me again until you say: 'Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the LORD.'"
