|Welcome friends. Thankyou for visiting this web site. I have always loved to teach the Word. Too many of God's people let their pastor or teacher do all their studying for them. But if the Bible is the Word of God, shouldn't you take a serious look at it yourself? To study and discover things on your own is both faith building and spiritually rewarding. It is exciting to discover the treasures of God's Word. Studying the Bible doesn't have to be a chore, it can be a most thrilling adventure. I hope to stimulate thought by this web site, provoke you to want to dig into the scriptures yourself, and honor the God of Israel, and our Saviour, the Messiah our soon coming King.|
A CUP OF TREMBLING,
A BURDENSOME STONE THE TROOPS ARE COMING
"Nevertheless, the spiritual dimensions of the Israeli conflict are so great, and the powers of darkness against her so evil, that as Zechariah wrote, all the nations of the world would line up against her. Zechariah 12:1-3 says, "The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it."
The prophet Joel also foretold this event. " For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head; Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things: The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border. Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head: And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it. Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. " - Joel 3:1-17.
There is an interesting observation about this verse of scripture. In verse 4, we find the words, "all the coasts of Palestine". This is a prophetic scripture discribing a future event. Today, those who live in "Palestine" are called "Palestinians". But compare that with verse 2, "I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. " When I look at todays world you may excuse me if I see a conglomeration of nations (the UN) that parted ( Hebrew- partition, assign, distribute) "My" (God's) land and apportioned parts of it to the Palestinians. The Palestinians could quite well be the catalyst that brings about the war of Armageddon. For the war of Armageddon is to be fought in Israel by a multitude of nations in the valley of Megiddo. The armies fighting in the valley of Jehoshaphat may be part of, or a prelude to the war of Armageddon. The world may call the Holy Land, Palestine, but God calls it, "my heritage Israel". Don't forget that this passage in Joel is not historical but prophetic. God is speaking of a future time. Also bear in mind that the Palestinian problem is the first and foremost single issue that gets the nations involved in Israel's business. There is also a call for international peacekeepers to be sent to Israel. Israel would then become occupied by foreign armies."
No matter how many critics bad mouth the Word of the living God His Word marches on toward fulfillment regardless of what the sceptics preach. It fact, there are times when, ironically, it is God's enemies who are inadvertantly fullfing His Word. The New World Order's conspiracy against the Jewish nation and the Jewish people is one such example. Read the above Bible passages again, and the following e-mail sent to me by Barry Chamish from Israel and consider if their fulfillment is not in the making. Since God's Word is right about this you can bet that it will be right about everything else it says.
HERE COME THE TROOPS by Barry Chamish
For the past ten years I've been repeating the same message: The Oslo "Peace" process was a planned war process whose final goal was the occupation of Israel and, especially, Jerusalem, by the troops of the architects of the global takeover known commonly as the New World Order. Soon we will witness the fulfillment of still another logical prediction as Israel turns into another Bosnia, Afghanistan or Iraq and patrons of Jerusalem's outdoor cafes will see UN/US tanks rolling past their tables. The following pattern is self-evident, yet Israelis continue to miss its significance, and don't ask me how. I'll let the items speak for themselves. When I intrude with an observation, it will begin and end with ***. http://www.menewsline.com/stories/2003/august/08_27_1.html
U.S. considers international force to stop Israeli-PA war WASHINGTON [MENL] -- The United States has been examining the prospect of organizing an international force to stop the Israeli-Palestinian war. "We're not talking about another U.S. military deployment," an official said. "Instead, we're discussing a NATO-type heavily-armed combat force that would be based mostly on troop contributions from Europe. There has been some discussions and positive feedback from some of our European friends."

WASHINGTON [MENL] -- The United States has been examining the prospect of organizing an international force to stop the Israeli-Palestinian war. Officials said both the Bush administration and Congress have quietly discussed an effort to recruit at least one division of combat troops that would patrol the West Bank and Gaza Strip and enforce a Palestinian ceasefire with Israel. They said many in the administration and Congress have concluded that a Palestinian state can not be established without an international force that will impose a ceasefire in the region. "We're not talking about another U.S. military deployment," an official said. "Instead, we're discussing a NATO-type heavily-armed combat force that would be based mostly on troop contributions from Europe. There has been some discussions and positive feedback from some of our European friends." Officials said congressional leaders, both Democrats and Republicans, have supported the deployment of U.S. troops in the Palestinian areas as part of an international force. They said NATO and the international community would require at least a pool of 30,000 troops, aircraft and armored platforms to form a credible deterrent against Palestinian insurgency groups that operate in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. At any one time, about 10,000 troops would patrol the West Bank and Gaza Strip in cooperation with Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
The troops are coming. get ready.

E.U. - RAPID DEPLOYMENT FORCE AIMED AT ISRAEL (NOTE THE DATE 12/22/02) by Emanuel A. Winston, a Middle East analyst & commentator
For some time I have detected and written about the stench of European collaboration with Jewish Leftists and various Arabists in the U.S. State Department. It was hard to put together because such groups are not anxious to announce their intentions nor show collaboration.
However, more is surfacing. For example: The E.U., (European Union) wishes to assemble a RDF (Rapid Deployment Force). Such a Force needs a 'raison d'etre' (reason for being) or at least an excuse. One reason will be to deploy European and, possibly, Canadian forces in the Middle East to forcibly 'separate' Israel and the Arab Palestinians. (Read this article and plan carefully.) That translates into sending forces into Israel, against that nation's will to ostensibly force into existence another Arab Palestinian State. This requires 'protecting' the 'unwarlike' Arab Palestinians after they conduct Terrorist operations, from Israeli counter-Terrorism assaults. Seemingly unconnected, it is in fact a direct extension of the Bush "Road Map" plan which will start its implementation at the end of January 2003 - in one month?!?
Since the E.U. does not have any troops of its own, it wishes to borrow from existing NATO's standing military, including men, equipment, tanks, planes, ammunition, planning, computer technology, etc. Much of this armament has been supplied by America (at U.S. tax-payer's expense). Any decisions by NATO to allow this transfer must have approval of the American Administration.
Since this may seem contrary to the Bush/Cheney/Rice/Rumsfeld mind-set, is it possible that such approval has been given by the U.S. State Department as the main operator of the Quartet, which includes the E.U., United Nations and Russia. Perhaps the State Department even orchestrated this concept.
