When Hamas Decided To Kill And Abuse Women, Children And The Elderly, They Made Peace Impossible - by Michael Snyder - http://endoftheamericandream.com/when-hamas-decided-to-kill-and-abuse-women-children-and-the-elderly-they-made-peace-impossible/
Hamas has crossed lines that can never be uncrossed, and they have nobody to blame but themselves for what is about to happen. Throughout human history, it has always been acceptable for soldiers to attack other soldiers. But when they launched their surprise attack against Israel, Hamas showed no restraint whatsoever. Even though they knew that the whole world would be watching, they mercilessly killed and abused women, children and the elderly. And now footage has been released of them beheading captives. From this point forward, Hamas will be considered the moral equivalent of ISIS, and that is because they have behaved just like ISIS did.
There is a code of honor that all combatants are supposed to abide by everywhere in the world.
When a battle is raging, women and children are supposed to be left out of it.
But Hamas had no interest in following such rules. In fact, it is being reported that Israeli women were “raped next to the dead bodies of their friends”…
A survivor of the rave massacre – in which over 260 young revellers at a party near the Gaza Strip were gunned down by Hamas terrorists – has said that women were “raped next to the dead bodies of their friends”.
Speaking to US website Tablet, the survivor said that several of the rape victims appeared to have been executed later, while others were taken to Gaza.
Another survivor returned to the scene later in the day to look for his friends spoke, of seeing cold and mutilated bodies, mainly of young women. He said he saw scantily clad corpses, many of whom appeared to have been shot at point-blank.
Over the past few days, countless videos of the atrocities that they committed have been shared all over social media.
Did they not understand how the rest of the world would respond to their behavior?
Maybe they are scoring points with their radical Muslim friends, but everyone else is absolutely sickened by what they have seen.
And to make matters worse, Hamas has decided to actually start beheading soldiers that they captured…
In a statement, Mossad said: “Hamas has released footage of them beheading captured soldiers. We will not share it, but the world needs to know their depravity exceeds that of ISIS. And we have been telling you all for years. May the precious souls of our men and women be in our hearts forever.”
When I first read that, I was hoping that it wasn’t true.
But it is.
The beheadings have been confirmed and the videos are all over social media.
I would not suggest watching any of them.
On Monday, Hamas announced that from now on an Israeli civilian will be executed every time the IDF conducts another bombing in Gaza without any pre-warning…
Hamas’ armed wing said on Monday it will begin executing an Israeli civilian captive in return for any new Israeli bombing of civilian houses without pre-warning.
Abu Obaida, spokesperson for Hamas’ armed wing, the IQB, said they have been acting in accordance with Islamic instructions by keeping Israeli captives safe.
He blamed the intended move on Israel’s stepped-up bombing and killing of civilians inside their homes in air strikes without warning them.
I am sure that Hamas would like for the bombing to stop.
At this point, the IDF is literally bombing the living daylights out of Gaza.
But there is no going back now.
The Israelis are absolutely livid, and they have decided to impose a very strict siege on Gaza for the foreseeable future…
Now, Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant said authorities will cut electricity to the Gaza Strip and block the entry of food and fuel, declaring his troops are ‘fighting barbaric [terrorists] and will respond accordingly’.
The measures will essentially enact siege-like conditions that will see the millions of Palestinians living in the tiny, fenced-in region begin to starve as they are attacked from the skies.
Of course this is just in preparation for the ground invasion that is coming.
So many people are going to die in the days ahead.
It would be hard to overstate the anger that we are witnessing in Israel right now.
The Israeli population is absolutely furious, and that fury is being reflected in the public statements of their leaders.
For example, here is how Israeli President Isaac Herzog has responded to the Hamas attack…
Israeli President Isaac Herzog condemned the horrifying reality of the Hamas terror attack, writing on X, “Not since the Holocaust have so many Jews been killed on one day.
“And not since the Holocaust have we witnessed scenes of Jewish women and children, grandparents, even Holocaust survivors being herded into trucks and taken into captivity. Hamas has imported, adopted and replicated the savagery of ISIS. Entering civilian homes on a holy day and murdering in cold blood whole families, young and old, violating and burning bodies, beating and torturing their innocent victims.”
And Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is pledging that what the Israeli military is about to do “will echo for generations”…
He said: “We have not seen such atrocities from ISIS. Children were executed and entire families were exterminated by Arab Terrorists.
“There were atrocities that I will not describe here. Hamas is ISIS and we will destroy it as the world defeated ISIS.
“At the end of the war, all our enemies will know it was a terrible mistake to attack Israel.
“What we will do to our enemy over the next few days will echo for generations. Any place from which Hamas operates will turn into rubble.”
Needless to say, it isn’t just the Israelis that are seething with anger.
Here in the United States, there are many that want to see Hamas get absolutely destroyed. In his most recent article, Victor Davis Hanson expressed what he is feeling at this moment…
Apparently, the Palestinians in their now ISIS role also thought their descent into even greater barbarity, rarely witnessed in even the most savage parts of the world, would shock Israelis into assuming some sort of collective fetal position, with hands over their ears screaming, “make all these demons just go away.”
If so, Hamas sorely miscalculated.
The sheer horror of their methods, and the cowardice shown by focusing on teen-aged girls and children rather than the IDF, will have the exact opposite effect, both in Israel and worldwide.
Israel now knows there is no living with a precivilizational Hamas. It must destroy it, permanently block off Gaza from itself, and adopt a strategy of chronic disproportionate response from now on out.
In such a change of strategy, Israel will have the backing of most of the civilized world and its own people, since there is no other choice once Hamas has adopted its campaign of death. We will likely see things in the next month that no one has anticipated, and yet the Israeli response will be in the eyes of most of the world long overdue.
Of course what Hamas has done has also emboldened radical Muslims that are living in major cities all over the western world.
There have been lots of very large pro-Hamas rallies, and the rhetoric that is being spewed at some of them is absolutely frightening. The following is what one Muslim speaker had to say to a crowd that had assembled in New York City…
In New York City, a Muslim man made a threat to all non-believers.
“We’re done being tortured and hurt and judged. This is the correct religion. This is the religion that all of humanity needs to be — Islam.”
“We will not stop until it enters every home. So I want you to repeat after me. I want to hear it in every single district. It should tremble Brooklyn should hear it. The Bronx should hear it. Queens should hear it. Say it — There is no God worthy of worship except Allah. The God of Jesus, the God of Moses, the God of Abraham, and the God of the last and final prophet, Muhammed…”
Thanks to the very foolish policies of our leaders, there are vast numbers of radical Muslims now living in our communities.
And if this conflict between Hamas and Israel does evolve into the great Middle East war that many of us have been anticipating, there will be violence in cities all over the planet.
October 7th, 2023 was a day when everything changed.
From this point forward our world will be a much different place, and we will soon see death and destruction on a scale that most people can’t even imagine right now.
The Ghost of Golda - By Jan Markell - www.olivetreeviews.org
On October 6, 1973, the unthinkable happened. On the watch of Prime Minister Golda Meier, Israel’s enemies gathered on her borders and planned to wipe out the very memory of her existence (Psalm 83). They nearly succeeded.
Meier appealed to President Richard Nixon—no friend of the Jews to be sure. Could America step in and avert the utter destruction of the country? Nixon’s staffers were not in favor of this, but he had the voice of his mother in his ear, who had warned him about a day like this. And when he might encounter it, please come to Israel’s aid.
And so, he did. Big time. God and Nixon saved the beleaguered nation.
No one imagined that the scenario would repeat itself in 2023. Not the exact scenario, but very similar. That was 50 years ago and a different generation. But I have some vague recollection of the Yom Kippur War and am haunted that the ghost of Golda Meier is still around. Here are some thoughts—and questions:
This is a warning to free Western nations to protect borders because some of humanity is barbaric and we don’t wish to be invaded. Learn from this. We keep loved ones inside and those who would harm us, outside. Good fences make good neighbors said Robert Frost.
American politicians—and certainly those on the Left—have more concern for Ukraine than for our number one Mideast ally! Voters should take note.
The evil on display can only be dealt with through God’s justice, not humanity’s justice. How can many on the Left, starting with “the squad”, side with barbarians? What part of “depravity” do they not get? They are tolerant, but only on behalf of evil.
How can one of the world’s most sophisticated and high-tech nations have had such a security and intelligence slip-up? Were there not sensors and cameras along the Gaza border? Was there not chatter among the Gaza terrorists in their many months of planning? Couldn’t Israel’s world-class technology have spied on these terrorists more effectively?
Never underestimate the Iranians who planned it all. Hang-gliders, terror squads with thousands of jihadis, bulldozers, and other war-like weaponry, should have been obvious to Israelis who never let their guard down. Yet the killers had five hours to do their dirty work before Israel could even respond!
When America lacks a leader, the whole world groans. Earth longs for a leader, a Pied Piper to follow, even if he leads them over a cliff. One is coming who will mesmerize the left behind world.
Israel’s enemies don’t want a dialogue! They want her annihilation. They want Psalm 83! When can we stop forcing her to have peace talks with ruthless Islamists?
When an evil society cries “death to America” and “death to Israel”, believe them. They mean what they say! Iran means it. Iran financed the effort, in part, thanks to a $6 billion gift from Biden and his cronies. What part of “death to Israel” do you not get? Yet the Left has “appeasing Islam” in their veins. When do we bury the perverted slogan that Islam is a religion of peace?
Many denominations and churches cannot comprehend all that is going on. Because of their theology, Israel is an inconvenience and a thorn. A good Mid-East ally but not special to them. They have made the church the “chosen people.” How many churches this past Sunday ignored this tragedy as they sloshed around in the puddle of Replacement Theology?
Jews have not been hunted—and slaughtered—like this since the Holocaust. Not since the Holocaust have we seen so many Jews rounded up, beaten, and humiliated in public. And never before has it happened within the borders of modern Israel.
Finally, who can forget Golda Meier’s classic statement, “When peace comes, we will perhaps, in time, be able to forgive the Arabs for killing our sons, but it will be harder for us to forgive them for having forced us to kill their sons. Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.”
Amir Tsarfati wrote this on Sunday, “Pray for Israel. Pray for the families who have lost loved ones. Pray for the captives and the wounded. They will all have incredible trauma that they will have to process through in the months and years to come.
"Pray for wisdom for Prime Minister Netanyahu and the government as they mete out their response against Hamas and evaluate the steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again. Most of all, pray that God is glorified somehow through this.”
Am Yisrael Chai. The people of Israel live. But they need a Savior. Be sure to tell them. His Name is Yeshua. Some day soon, they will look upon him whom they pierced and mourn (Zechariah 12:10). Only then will there be the peace in Jerusalem we pray for.
(Go see the film "Golda." It is a compelling true story of the 1973 Yom Kippur War. It is totally family-friendly and a wonderful history lesson for children.)
FINAL THOUGHT: Catch Jan and Amir Tsarfati on this weekend's radio starting Friday. We will rush online program to Thursday.

Why were Israelis so defenseless against Hamas terrorists going house-to-house killing and raping? – Leo Hohmann - https://leohohmann.com/2023/10/09/why-were-israelis-so-defenseless-against-hamas-terrorists-going-house-to-house-killing-and-raping/
Let this be an object lesson for Americans: Never give up your Second Amendment rights!
By now you’ve all seen the horrifying images from Israel over the weekend. People being murdered in their homes. Women being pulled out of vehicles by their hair and raped. Men being dragged behind vehicles to their deaths. Spat upon. Executed.
The victims called the police and military, which did not arrive on most of the bloody scenes for two hours or more.
Looking at these images of carnage, many of us have asked, why didn’t the Israelis fight back?
Many of us, myself included, assumed that with Israel being surrounded on all sides by such vicious enemies, and living in such close proximity to them, that the Israelis lived with firearms at the ready in all of their houses.
That assumption would be wrong.
According to my sources, the Israeli government makes its citizens jump through so many hoops that only about 2.6 percent of Israeli citizens own a pistol. And it’s virtually impossible to own a rifle. If you are among the ranks of retired military, you are allowed to own a rifle but you cannot store it in your house unless you are among the top elite commandos.
This answers the question of, why didn’t they fight back? They were left as sitting ducks by their government leaders, who are, frankly, just as corrupt as our leaders in Washington. They are not in office to protect the people. And because they are so corrupt, they fear the people. And the first order of business for a corrupt government that no longer represents the interest of the people, is to disarm the people.
You can’t trust the body politick with weapons if you’re screwing them royally through theivery disguised as heavy taxation that’s weighted against the middle and lower classes. You must disarm them. And that’s exactly what the Israeli government did to those people who were slaughtered in 29 communities over this past weekend.
American society is not that different from Israel. We have lunatic politicians seeking to destroy our way of life and take away our freedoms. At the same time, we have many violent criminals, especially in our cities, who are allowed to roam free with little risk of extended incarceration. The border has been left wide open for more criminals to join the ranks. Refugees from nations that hate us have been imported since the 1980s, legally and with the full support of traitors in Congress (read my book Stealth Invasion for the whole ugly story of refugee resettlement). The same element that butchered those Jews in Israel is here in America and they will turn on us at some point. We’re already seeing evidence of it with the pro-Hamas rallies held in major cities across the U.S. the last couple of days.
All we have left to rely on for our protection is our own personal defensive plans and faith in God. When you need the police, they will not be there to protect you. And don’t even think about the military. They’ve been totally infiltrated and their members answer to a command structure that begins in the White House (need I say any more?).
The Second Amendment is the final frontier for American freedom lovers. The First Amendment has been under intense attack for years and has been extremely watered down over the last three or four years, to the point where it is hanging by a thread. The globalists who run Washington and many state Capitols are now gunning for the Second Amendment. Once that’s gone, that’s all she wrote. It’s game over. We are then totally dependent on the government for our protection. How did that work out for those Israelis?
A New Phase of Accelerated Decline - By Daymond Duck - https://www.raptureready.com/2023/10/07/a-new-phase-of-accelerated-decline-by-daymond-duck/
What is your opinion of America today?
Have you said (or heard anyone say), “The America I am living in today is not the America I grew up in?”
Have you said (or heard anyone say), “I believe America is headed in the wrong direction?”
What is your opinion of the global situation today?
Have you said (or heard anyone say), “The world is in a mess?”
Have you said (or heard anyone say), “The UN has done a wonderful job of solving the world’s problems for more than 70 years?”
Come to think of it, the UN (I call it the United Nothing) has done little, if anything, to solve the world’s problems.
I am aware that on Oct. 30, 2008, Pres. candidate Barack Obama said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” and it seems to me that America is going through a fundamental transformation (a spiritual, moral, and economic downward spiral).
I am aware that in late Sept. 2015, the UN passed a document called “Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” and UN Sec. Gen. Ban Ki-moon called it the “start of a new era.”
Considering that the fundamental transformation of America and the world was revealed before many of these fundamental changes started coming on the scene, it seems like the changes must be part of a plan.
Having said this, it is a little disturbing to know that UN Sec. Gen. Guterres thinks the fundamental transformation of the world needs to be speeded up.
It is even more disturbing to know that world leaders agreed with him on Sept. 18-19, 2023, and they voted to do everything they can to complete the fundamental transformation of the world by 2030 or sooner.
They are calling the next seven years “a new phase of accelerated progress.”
Have you got that?
They called the Sept. 2015 vote the “start of a new era,” and now, they are calling the Sept. 18-19 vote “a new phase of accelerated progress.”
Pardon me for being a skeptic, and I hope I am wrong, but I tend to believe the next seven years will turn out to be “a new phase of accelerated decline” (not accelerated progress).
Here are some recent articles that made the news this week.
One, on Sept. 29, 2023, World Net Daily (WND) posted a commentary by well-known author Craige McMillan that I believe is right on target (and full of hope).
According to McMillan:
“The real problem for the globalists rolling out a new World War, to bring forth their One-World Government out of the ashes, is that they are battling the Original Creator of the heavens and the earth for control of His Creation.”
“If you doubt the outcome of this globalist war against the Creator, go through the Bible and count the number of battles God has lost.”
“Arrogance before one’s Creator has only one possible outcome.”
“The globalists will not be left in control of anything.”
The entire “system that Satan has built for humanity is coming down.”
Here is a link to McMillan’s great article:
Two, concerning the coming global economic collapse: as I am writing this segment of my article on Sept. 30, 2023, the highly respected credit rating agency called Moody’s is warning that a government shutdown on Oct. 1, 2023, “could have dire consequences for the economy and stock markets.”
I am not an economic expert, but as I understand the situation, conservative Republicans blame America’s runaway national debt on excessive government spending, and many Democrats do not want to reign it in.
Conservative Republicans want the U.S.-Mexico border closed, and many Democrats do not want it closed.
America is a divided nation, and a nation divided against itself cannot stand.
America may be about to move into a new phase of accelerated decline.
(Update: On Sept. 30, 2023, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy caved, abandoned most of the major spending cuts conservative Republicans wanted, joined the Democrats, and agreed to a 45-day temporary funding bill to keep the government operating until Nov. 16, 2023. It is a crisis delayed, not a crisis solved, and the division in America continues.)
Three, on Sept. 18-23, 2023, the UN General Assembly met in New York, and the U.S. greatly criticized Israel for settlement construction on the West Bank and refusing to divide the Promised Land.
A record-breaking storm developed off the East Coast and dumped more than eight inches of rain on parts of New York on Sept. 28-29, 2023.
New York Gov. Hochul declared a state of emergency; flights were canceled; homes, streets and subways were flooded; and many people were stranded.
Four, concerning deceit and corruption in the mainstream media: in late Sept. 2023, it was reported that CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS and ABC were mocking or refusing to cover the Republican impeachment hearings on Pres. Biden.
This contrasts with the constant criticism of Trump and the wall-to-wall coverage they gave to the staged Democrat impeachment hearings of Trump.
I know that my reporting on this sounds politically motivated. My purpose is to show that the truth has been cast to the ground by the media, and the media’s dishonest reporting is contributing to the fact that America is in a new phase of decline.
Five, concerning world government and the decline of America: on Sept. 29, 2023, it was reported that the World Economic Forum (WEF) has taken control of several old U.S. military bases in Panama and is using them to assemble illegal immigrants for transport across the U.S. border with Mexico.
A picture was posted of the WEF flag flying over an old U.S. military base near the Panama Canal called Fort Clayton.
U.S. citizens paid to build the base, the U.S. flag has been taken down, the WEF flag is flying there, and the base is being used to send hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants across Biden’s open border.
(My opinion: The decline of America is being deliberately orchestrated to bring our nation into a one-world government. If this is not true, how is it that the WEF is sending thousands of illegal immigrants across our border without government knowledge and permission?)
Six, concerning the deliberate destruction of America’s Judeo-Christian values: on Oct. 2, 2023, it was reported that Cal. Gov. Gavin Newsom has appointed Laphonza Butler, a black lesbian, to replace the recently deceased Dianne Feinstein in the U.S. Senate.
Butler will be the first openly gay female senator in the history of California.
Seven, concerning a normalization agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia: on Oct. 2, 2023, it was reported that Israeli and Saudi officials believe the Biden administration is hampering the deal.
Israeli and Saudi officials believe they are close to a deal, but the Biden administration continues to push for more concessions (more money for the PA, an independent U.S. consulate to serve the PA in Jerusalem, etc.) to the Palestinians that could cause everything to fall apart.
Biden just cannot stop telling Israel how to run the country.
Eight, concerning corruption, world government, and a population reduction on earth: on Sept. 13, 2023, two well-known medical professionals were asked to address the European Union Parliament about the so-called Covid-19 pandemic.
(Note: Concerning the recognition and credibility of these men, and because the globalist propaganda machine tries to discredit them, I want to re-emphasize that they were invited to address the EU Parliament.)
Among other things, Dr. Peter McCullough (cardiologist, professor, and author of many academic papers) suggested that:
Among other things, Dr. David E. Martin (professor, researcher, and author of many publications) suggested that:
Here is a link to the article, which was a reprint from The American Thinker. (here)
Nine, following the Rapture of the Church, but during the Tribulation Period, a one-world religious system will exist that Jesus identified as Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth (Rev. 17:5).
The head of this harlot system (the Scriptures present the true Church as a good woman—the Bride of Christ—and the false religious system as a bad woman—the mother of harlots) will support global government and manipulate multitudes to support a government-approved antichrist religion (Rev. 17:2).
There are differences of opinion about the identity of the harlots, but I believe they are lost Church members (Catholics, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc.) that will be left behind after the Rapture and unite with other religions (Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.) in a godless one-world religion.
Having said this, on Oct. 3, 2023, the LifeSiteNews staff posted a statement by Roman Catholic Archbishop Vigano that says or suggests (his words and mine):
> Pope Francis hid his intentions from those that elected him and used his authority to undermine the Church and make it the handmaid of the New World Order.
> The Throne of Peter (the chair of Peter, who, according to Catholics, was the first pope of the Church) is occupied by a person who abuses his power, using it for the opposite purpose to that for which Our Lord instituted it.
> Francis does and says things that are foreign to what is expected of a pope.
> In his ten years of papal service, Francis has done things that one would expect an apostate to do but not what one would expect a pope to do.
> His support for the globalist elite (the Clintons and others), his proud support for the 2030 Agenda (Ecumenism, ecology, vaccinism, immigrationism, LGBTQ+ and gender ideology, and other instances of the globalist religion), and his opposition and persecution of those who oppose these things show that he is a heretic and blatantly hostile to the Church.
Here is a link to Vigano’s stunning and exceptionally long statement. (Here)
(My Opinion: Some prophecy teachers think Pope Francis might be the False Prophet. I wonder about that because of his age and health. I do not see him hanging around for another seven years or more. However, I have profound respect for Archbishop Vigano and his willingness to speak out against Pope Francis. I think the same way he does about Francis.)
FYI: God does not send anyone to Hell (all of us are born with a sin nature and destined to go to Hell because we sin), but God has provided a way (Jesus) for everyone to go to Heaven (and He is the only way to get there; John 14:6).
Finally, are you Rapture Ready?
If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
Daily Jot: Was Biden complicit in terrorist attack on Israel? - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
The world is aghast at the vicious attack on Israel by Hamas, Islamic Jihad from the South and West, and Hezbollah from the North. Thousands of rockets rained down on civilians from these terrorist groups in a coordinated attack. The White House has put out a statement denouncing the terrorist action, but could the Biden Administration’s financial support of Iran and the “Palestinian” people have not only enabled, but funded this horrible act against Israel? Follow the money and the intent. Since Biden took office, he has acted decisively to send millions to the “Palestinians” and billions to Iran, which funds all terrorist groups seeklng the demise of Israel. The saying, “when the tide rises all the ships rise as well” is in play.
On July 14, 2022, the White House announced its intention to support the “Palestinian” people with new contributions totaling $316 million. The announcement said, “This is on top of the more than half a billion dollars the United States has provided to the Palestinian people since the Biden Administration restored much needed funding to the Palestinians.” This after the a round of funding given in March 2021 as reported by the Times of Israel: “The administration announced last Thursday that it was giving $15 million to vulnerable Palestinian communities in the West Bank and Gaza to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. A day later, with no public announcement, it notified Congress that it will give the Palestinians $75 million for economic support, to be used in part to regain their “trust and goodwill” after the Trump-era cuts.”
On September 11, the Biden Administration announced that it was “unfreezing” $6 BILLION to Iran in a deal to free four American prisoners. Less than a month later, Israel is attacked. The State Department says the money had nothing to do with the attacks. But can they be so sure? Former Pennsylvania Republican Congressman Kurt Weldon, who was vice chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, outlined in his 2005 book “Countdown To Terror” that Iran had developed a coordinating committee on terrorism called the “Committee of Nine.” Weldon said this committee, which has been operational since April of 2003, “supports and manages international terrorist operations, working with al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, Ansar al Islam, and other major terrorist groups [also including Hamas].”
Notwithstanding, Republicans are also guilty of supporting “Palestinian” terrorism. Under pressure from President George W Bush, Israel Prime Minister Arial Sharon in August 2005 evicted some 9,480 Jewish settlers from 21 settlements in Gaza and four settlements in the northern West Bank. This was supposed to be the realization of the Bush theory that the Israelis and “Palestinians” would “live side by side in peace.” That concept went out the window when these “Palestinians” elected Hamas as their ruling government. Since then, rocket fire and terrorist attacks have been common place. Under President Donald Trump, the Palestinian Authority was defunded, choking the terrorist cabal. Now, Biden has pumped billions into the hands of the terrorists, claiming it’s for humanitarian purposes. History proves otherwise.
Sending money to Iran, the Palestinian Authority, Hamas as the government in Gaza, and other places only funds terrorism. The idea that these people and organizations solely dedicated to the demise of Israel can willingly live side by side in peace is foolhardy. The Bible speaks repeatedly about those who will come against Israel in the end of times. They just happen to be the ones the US supports financially, while saying it is a friend and ally of Israel. So here you go with another Biblical prophecy about Israel that has been proven true: Genesis 12:3, “And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you.” America is prophetically on thin ices, especially with this Biden guy in office.
Daily Devotion: Heavenly Crowns - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
After all, what gives us hope and joy, and what will be our proud reward and crown as we stand before our Lord Jesus when he returns? It is you! —1 Thessalonians 2:19
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/heavenly-crowns/ - Listen
According to Scripture, rewards will be given out in Heaven for our faithfulness.
What kind of rewards will they be? The Bible specifically mentions crowns. For example, there is a crown of rejoicing, which we could also call the soul winner’s crown. The apostle Paul wrote, “After all, what gives us hope and joy, and what will be our proud reward and crown as we stand before our Lord Jesus when he returns? It is you!” (1 Thessalonians 2:19 NLT).
Paul was effectively saying that the people he reached with the gospel will be his crown of rejoicing. This seems to indicate that if we have led others to Christ, then we will receive a special crown.
The Bible also mentions a crown of life. James 1:12 tells us, “God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him” (NLT). This crown is for those who have resisted temptation and persevered under trial.
Some people have tougher lives than others. Certain people seem to skate through life relatively unscathed. On the other hand, maybe you’ve had a difficult life, but you’ve been faithful during those times of testing. Despite setbacks, hardships, disabilities, or illnesses, you have honored the Lord. As a result, you will receive the crown of life.
Then there is the crown of righteousness. Paul mentioned this crown in 2 Timothy: “And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing” (4:8 NLT).
This is a crown for faithful living. It’s a crown for those who long for the return of Christ, for those who live in the light of Heaven.
Here’s what we need to remember: It isn’t about how famous you are. Rather, it’s about being faithful with what God has called you to do. It is not about what God has called your friend or your pastor or someone else to do. It’s all about what God has given you to do. Have you been faithful?
As you think about your life, you might say, “I don’t know that I’ve reached thousands or hundreds or even tens.” But if you follow Jesus Christ and have told others about Him, then you’ve sown seeds of the gospel.
That seed might not break ground until later. Maybe one person you’ve led to the Lord will lead twenty people to the Lord twenty years from now. Or maybe the person you impacted with the gospel will have children who raise their children in the way of the Lord. And maybe one of their children will become the next Billy Graham.
All the spiritual fruit that goes from generation to generation will come back to you. You will share in it. And you will be rewarded for your faithfulness to God.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN BLESSED THROUGH THIS MINISTRY, THEN WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD PLEASE REMEMBER PROPHECY UPDATE IN YOUR GIVING - WE ARE TRULY, TRULY, THANKFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT
WORTHY OF YOUR SUPPORT?
One of the most reliable ways to determine if a ministry is worthy of your financial support is to examine its fruits. If Prophecy Update is keeping you informed, and if that information inspires you, and causes you to draw closer to the Lord, if Prophecy Update equips you with valuable information and knowledge to share with and encourage other believers, and open the eyes of non-believers, and if Prophecy Update keeps you connected to current events relating to Bible Prophecy, then you are partaking of the fruit produced through this ministry. None of this would be possible without the Lords blessings and your support. I believe where the Lord guides, the Lord provides, and most of the time He provides through the willing and generous hearts of believers just like you and me.

"Share in the Blessings and Rewards that will last Forever!"
"Folks, it's all beginning to unravel. America is in more danger of falling than at any time in its history. But I believe Bible prophecy predicts this very decline. From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture. But don't be discouraged or disillusioned. The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God's kingdom!" - Hal Lindsey
