I live 4 houses down from “my” church and my parents live across the street from it. This is our second Sunday being closed due to social distancing, but the bells still rang as a reminder that this is the Lord’s day. The ringing of the bell brings a peaceful comfort to this small, rural, community on this gloriously beautiful Sunday.
Pardon the view. This was videoed from my bedroom window as I realized the time. We still have some landscaping/cleaning up to do. The dog is named JoJo and he’s about 10 years old.
I hope you are healthy, strong, and at peace during these unprecedented times, drawing close to the Lord.
This is towards the back of our property. The birds are enjoying the withered sunflowers. There was a gentle breeze. Such a pleasant, peaceful, moment. ❤😁 God is so Good.
The UN General Assembly on Wednesday adopted six resolutions on “Palestinian and Middle East issues,” ranging from Jerusalem to the United Nations special information program on the question of Palestine. The good news is that Israel still has a smattering of friends at the UN: Canada, Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, and the United States (and Israel, of course) voted against; Australia, Cameroon, Honduras, Guatemala, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Tonga, and Vanuatu abstained. The rest, 153 world nations that include places where you plan to spend your vacation this summer or buy your car, condemned Israel as being responsible for most of the ills of the planet, especially the Middle East.
For instance, Haya al-Duraie, representing Kuwait which in 1991 expelled 400,000 Palestinians into the desert, expressed support for international efforts that were laying the foundation for security and stability in the region. “However,” the ambassador warned, “the faltering peace process continues to present a danger to the Middle East.”
There you have it.
The UN press release on the assembly votes, includes a section dealing with the “Situation in the Middle East.” One would expect this section to deal with the 500,000 Syrians who died and millions who were uprooted in the past six years; with the war between Shiites and Sunnis in Iraq; with Iran’s nuclear threat and its region-wide terrorism; with Egypt’s paralyzing poverty; perhaps with the discriminatory policies of Saudi Arabia. Alas, one would be wrong. According to the UN General Assembly, there are two main issues threatening stability and peace in the Middle East: Israel’s “occupation” of Jerusalem and Israel’s refusal to hand over the Golan Heights to the Assad Regime.

Many students of Bible prophecy agree that the modern state of Israel is THE biggest indicator that we are living in the end times.
No other nation in history has regathered after being scattered across the world for nearly 2000 years. The fact that modern-day Jews even know, or care, of their ancestry and its uniqueness is a miracle in and of itself I think.
Since its reemergence as a sovereign state in 1948, its neighbors have been boo-hooing and pitching a fit over a piece of land that, before the Jews began resettling, was essentially a wasteland. This is a piece of land that makes up a QUARTER OF A PERCENT of what is considered Arab(Persian if talking about Iran)/Muslim land in the middle east and northern Africa. Take a look:
Yet, the PEACE of the whole world depends upon whether Israel gives up a portion of that .25 of a percent. Of course, her enemies will not be happy until the name of Israel is remembered no more and is completely wiped off the map.
The fact that itty bitty yellow slither is the center of world news and the object of world-wide debate and animosity is proof enough that the Bible is True, Replacement Theology is a FALSE DOCTRINE and we are living in the last days of human history as mankind has always known it.
The good, and what will be surprising news for the world, is that yellow slither will be victorious in every assault hurled at her, for Jehovah God defends her and He who put the stars in the sky says she will never again be scattered. Since Abraham, she has and always will be God’s people. Mr. Netanyahu should thumb his nose at Obama and the rest of the world who think they know what is best for Israel and the middle east.
So many Americans couldn’t give a hoot what is happening “over there”, nor do they have any idea as to Obama’s policy concerning Israel, the PA and upcoming peace talks. As long as gas prices do not skyrocket, who cares? We should care, for God has declared that whomever blesses Israel will be blessed and whomever curses Israel will be cursed. (Genesis 12)
We are living in the end, folks, and we are seeing prophecy foretold thousands of years ago coming true…RIGHT NOW! Just take another look at the map above…it makes absolutely no sense why one tiny nation could be so hated by the world and much more successful than its envious, evil neighbors UNLESS, the Bible is true. Could anything be more obvious?
