Israel Steps Up Attacks Against Hamas in Gaza

July 29, 2014   |   Category: Prophecy News   |  

Israeli forces pounded Hamas symbols of control and the Gaza Strip’s only power plant on Tuesday in their heaviest bombardment of a 3-week offensive in Gaza, defying international demands for an immediate cease-fire after Hamas militants broke a Muslim holiday lull.

 

The Israeli military’s chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz, said the offensive against Gaza’s Hamas rulers was being “intensified.”

 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Israelis late Monday to brace for a long fight.Seventy-seven Gazans have been killed since the fresh Israeli attacks began early Tuesday, raising the Palestinian death toll to 1,156, Gaza health officials said.

    • Scripture talks about the event in many different places. Isaiah, Joel, Matthew, Acts, Revelation referring to the second coming. However Matthew 24: 29-31 gives us very specific information on when the Lord returns.
      Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

      So, Jesus says this event happens immediately after the tribulation of those days, we know from Matthew 24:15 that the Abomination of desolation triggers the great tribulation.
      Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

      So, having this understand, knowing the Abomination of Desolation has not occurred as of yet and therefore we are not in the tribulation, I would say the lunar event that is happening in a few days, has nothing to do with the return of Jesus our Lord.

    Matthew 24 teaching of Christ at Mt. Olivet discourse to His inner circle contains several words on the COMING and the SIGN OF THE COMING and also MENTIONS THE APPEARING OF HIS PRESENCE which many ignorantly lump together as ONE EVENT WHERE IN TRUTH THEY ARE SEVERAL EVENTS THAT LEAD UP TO THE GREAT DAY OF THE LORD. There are many if not most who attempt to LUMP EVENTS TOGETHER ESPECIALLY THOSE IN THE PRE TRIB “RAPTURE” CAMP. One passage of scripture they seize upon frequently on is THE KNOW ONE KNOWS THE DAY OR HOUR and that means Christ and the Apostles taught CHRIST COULD COME AT ANY TIME WHICH IS TOTALLY NONSENSICAL CONSIDERING HIM ANSWERING THEIR MAIN QUESTIONS AS TO WHEN HE WOULD ESTABLISH THE KINGDOM AND WHAT WOULD BE THE SIGNS OF HIS COMING. Obviously that GENERATION of the FIG TREE BUDDING he was speaking to on the mount 2000 YEARS AGO WAS NOT THAT FINAL GENERATION! Was Christ being coy or even worse DECEPTIVE??? Of course not! He was quick to point out the more sure word of prophecy particularly Daniel’s 70th week AND THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION. Well then the great tribulation is only to be seen as a Jewish event and not the church right? NO! HE SPECIFICALLY RELATES THE CATCHING UP OF THE ELECT AT HIS “APPEARING” AND SUBSEQUENT SECOND COMING. He was about to fulfill those dress rehearsal OF THE SPRING FEASTS OF PASSOVER, UNLEAVENED BREAD AND FIRST FRUITS WITH HIS DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION. There was the interlude before HE SENT THE HOLY GHOST ON PENTECOST AND BIRTHED THE CHURCH AGE OF GRACE AND FAITH. This gospel of grace message will be preached in all the earth and then the END WILL COME and HE WILL COMPLETELY FULFILL THE FALL FEAST EVENTS OF TRUMPETS, ATONEMENT AND TABERNACLES ALL OF WHICH WILL BE CONSUMMATED IN THE SIGN OF HIS COMING OR APPEARANCE, SECOND COMING IN POWER AND WRATH TO SAVE THE JEWS AND MAKE THEM ONE WITH HIM AND THE MILLENIAL REIGN OF TABERNACLING WITH HIS SAINTS OF ALL THE AGES!!! One needs to understand he has blinded Israel for but a time and has “grafted in to this BRANCH OF THE GENTILES” UNTIL THEIR TIME OF VISITATION IS COMPLETE WHEN HE WILL SAVE ALL OF ISRAEL. We as the Gentile branch CANNOT BOAST AGAINST THE NATURAL BRANCH FOR IT IS ONE IN THE SAME BEING BROUGHT IN TO DRINK OF CHRIST THROUGH THE SPIRIT! We must look carefully and have an ear as to what Christ says of the SIGN OF HIS APPEARING IN THE AIR AND BEING “GATHERED” TOGETHER TO HIM and the SECOND COMING TO THE EARTH TO DELIVER HIS ELECT OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL AND DEFEAT ANTICHRIST. HE DID MASTERFULLY WORD HIS TEACHING KNOWING FULL WELL THEY WERE NOT THE FIG TREE GENERATION BUT THOSE WHO WOULD SEE THE ROMANS BURN THE CITY AND TEMPLE and theY would rest in His PRESENCE OVER TWO THOUSAND YEARS BUT AS PAUL SAID GOD WOULD BRING THOSE SOULS THAT WERE ASLEEP IN JESUS CHRIST WITH HIM, resurrect them and catch them up, RAPTURE THEM UP TO HIM IN THE AIR AS WELL AS THOSE ALIVE AND THAT REMAIN IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE GREAT TRIBULATION! Even so come quickly Lord Jesus and FULFILL THE FALL FEAST EVENTS and so SHALL WE BE FOREVER WITH THE LORD.

    The meeting in the clouds is not the second coming, but the rapture. The second coming will be Jesus actually making contact/coming onto Earth. These are two, very separate events.

    • Hello Tim,

      1 Corinthians 15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

      The scripture above tells us clearly the resurrection happens at His coming.

      2 Thessalonians 2:Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

      Notice the above scripture says the “coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together unto Him.” When does the gathering take place? At His Coming.

    Matthew 22 relates the story proposed by the Sadducees of a woman who could not bear children evidently and her first husband died and had no sons to carry on the family name. The next eldest brother had to marry her and try to conceive seed for him according to the Law. He had seven brothers and each married her when she did not bear a child and the next husband in line died still without having a child by her. The sad- you- see sect did not believe in the resurrection. They then wanted Jesus to tell them WHOSE WIFE SHALL SHE BE IN THE RESURRECTION which would make her and the last 6 brothers adulterers as they could not all be married to her as they saw the resurrection body HAVING THAT SAME MARITAL RELATIONSHIP OF THE FLESH CONTRARY TO THE LAW! Jesus understood their sin trap conundrum and refutation of the doctrine of a resurrection being possible and satisfy the Law. Verse 29- Jesus replied, YOU ARE IN ERROR BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW THE SCRIPTURES OR THE POWER OF GOD. In truth they were all well educated in the Law taught by their rabbis but HAD BEEN TAUGHT TRADITIONAL DOCTRINES OF MIS INTERPRETATION AND UNBELIEF WITHOUT A HEART OPEN TO THE SPIRIT OF GOD AND HIS WORD WHICH NEGATED THE TRUTH AND LED THEM INTO ERROR!!! We have the same issue today WITH MEN’S TRADITION CONCERNING the RESURRECTION and RAPTURE and PROPHETIC TRUTH!!! I have myself had great TEACHERS/RABBIS MASTERS OF TEACHING that had great insight into the word of God and were masters at doctrinal truth or so I thought UNTIL I BEGAN TO EXAMINE THE SCRIPTURES PRAYERFULLY AND STUDIOUSLY TO SEE IF THEY HAD NOT HAD THAT AGE OLD ISSUE OF TRADITIONS OF THE FATHERS INFLUENCE AND OVERRIDE the Spirit of truth leading them. We all find ourselves confronted with those authorities over us and have been taught from our youth to be obedient and take instruction and command from them especially those spiritual authorities and elders who have responsibility to train and equip us in the ways of God but WE HAVE THE ULTIMATE RESPONSIBILITY TO SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES TO FIND ETERNAL LIFE IN CHRIST AND THE TRUTH. Bro. Baxter has done that due diligence to NOT ERROR BY ACCEPTING MASTERS WHO MISUNDERSTAND THE WORD OF GOD AND LET TRADITION BLIND THEM TO GOD’S WORD. He often has said understanding prophecy is not a salvation issue BUT IN TRUTH TO LET MASTERS OF TRADITIONAL TEACHING MISGUIDE YOU SO YOU ARE IGNORANT OF THE TIMES AND EVENTS WE LIVE IN IS DANGEROUS! Paul said some are forever learning AND NEVER COMING TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH! Over 1/4 of scripture is PROPHECY and THE JEW HAD NO WAY OF KNOWING IMMANUEL, GOD WITH US, JESUS THE CHRIST WAS THE ONE THEY WERE CHALLENGING ABOUT THE RESURRECTION AND GATHERING TOGETHER INTO THE ETERNAL KINGDOM OF GOD!!! They were blinded by their traditions and most still are until this day and some still persecute those Jewish Christians. I was enthralled to watch a video touring a first century AD church administered by the Greek Orthodox with the menorah and fish tail forming the star of David etched into the masonry. It had bent iron fences and gate were it had been broken into and literally trashed and desecrated with no Israeli Authority to guard it from radical zealots venom who clung to their masters rabbinical Judaism! I much appreciated the discussion of the BLESSED HOPE OF ALL CHRISTIANS…but sadly recent Pew polls on Christian belief in that HOPE say AS LITTLE AS 35% of Protestant churches still teach what Christ addressed for the sad-you-see sect’s error and powerless teaching without the Spirit with a form of supposed GODLINESS WITHOUT POWER WHICH IS THE REAL CONUNDRUM THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN ADDRESSING WHICH THING MANY CHURCHES ATTEMPT TO DO TODAY. It is a Sadducee traditional doctrine replacing truth by an everybody who professes belief in God any God, goes straight to heaven including Spot their dog. LOL IF WEREN’T SO SAD YOU SEE.
