More claims of divine intervention are being reported in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, with an operator of Israel‚Äôs Iron Dome missile-defense system saying he personally witnessed ‚Äúthe hand of God‚ÄĚ diverting an incoming rocket out of harm‚Äôs way.
‚ÄúWe fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This is very rare. I was in shock. At this point we had just four seconds until the missile lands. We had already notified emergency services to converge on the target location and had warned of a mass-casualty incident.
‚ÄúSuddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that ‚Ä¶ sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‚ÄėThere is a God!‚Äô
‚ÄúI witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of God send that...
these brethren asked to go against their confession of Christ and are refusing. they could easily destroy their testimony like the American SBC and Rick Warren who cower under economic pressure, can't withstand a negative op piece.
You know, the types who preach cessationism, that one can not see the working power of the Holy Spirit today, but declare through missiles and buildings blown up the manifestation of God. Their hearts are set on the world.
meanwhile those who are teaching antichrist, are not necessarily even genetically related to Abraham and are often proclaimers of atheism are "God's Chosen People".
Scofield is antichrist.
Yes, judgment is on the church. The same things happening in American borders. God will purify His church, Christ spoke of those who are ashamed of the testimony of Christ.
Twisting things around to say that those who proclaim the gospel are secret islam lovers, how deceiving. How soothing to the Scofield mind. The Christian being forced to manufactured situations and "pick a team". those who watched their children beheaded in the street instead of speaking against the name of Christ, will be there in heaven (Rev 20) -- God might be fine letting us go with all the other rejecters of the gospel to that other place.
It's amazing the support that the Muslims get from some "Christians" considering the many reasons the shouldn't be doing it. The UN Prevents Peace. The UN relief agency is nothing more than part of the Palestinian terrorists.
Also, the civilian population voted in Hamas, so they are guilty of active collaboration with terrorists.
Anglican Christian? A rhetorical question no doubt.
Romans 10:8-10 KJV (8) But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; (9) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Note, "the word of faith, which we [apostles] preach".
Oh, so not goosebumps during the service?
Let's see now, is it possible to be saved if there is no confession with the mouth of the Lord Jesus Christ by someone who believes in his heart that God raised him from the dead?
Let's see now, is it possible for me to give God all the glory when I confess Christ with my mouth and believe in my heart that God has raised him from the dead?
Around the world there are a multitude of preachers who preach some sort of "faith", but is it the same "word of faith" which the Apostles preached?
"Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
"For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people" Hebrews 8:9-10
the house of Israel is Jew and Gentile. The curtain was torn in two. The old is obsolete.
Any who have any love left for the brethren (if it hasn't been stolen by Scofield), you can hear an interview from a pastor of the Anglican church who has remained in Iraq, weeping on the phone of what his people are going through, hiding behind rocks. Our American churches have left the brethren for a false substitute and their love has grown cold. people speaking of children being beheaded.
trunews dot com has the interview for Thursday August 7
Steve R, the House of Judah (Jews) have remained (mostly) intact throughout the world over the centuries. Family records and communities have ensured this. Thousands upon thousands of them have returned to their land! This is indisputable really. The house of Israel, on the other hand, has been totally dispersed and have lost their heritage except for some small groups. GOD know these people though - and, who knows, many Christians may be part of Israel unawares!?
Israel, the nation is a miracle of a sovereign God. Jews are coming back to this nation fullfilling the devine prohecy of the same sovereign God. There is spirutel Jerusalem and a physical Jerusalem,they are both on Gods agenda. You need the Holy Spirit helps to recognize it. Even if many in this forum embrace the replacement ideas, we are just as many that does not agree on that at all, Please accept that as well as we have to accept yours.As long as it does not turn in to antisemitism I see it as a secondary question. However for myself my it is a heart issue and a timeclock before the end. I don't see why anyone should judge me for that. The tone here is too harsh. Please calm down a little. Jeshua.,Christ Jesus our Lord is still our main focus.
Steve R, the northern kingdom, Israel, which was the most ungodly of the two kingdoms was taken into bondage first by Assyians, that werethe most evil and barbaric of all the nations around. Later, Judah, the royal lineage of Jesus, which was the southern kingdom was taken captive by the Babylonians and stayed there for 70 yrs. because of theirs sins and worship of idols. God gave Isaiah a prophesy of this event 150 yrs. before it happened but them assurance that would be back in their homeland and even named the King who would free them, Cyrus King of Perisia. Some came back but Nehemiah and others chose to stay. He heard the walls were in ruins around the city and the king allowed him to go back and rebuild the wall. Now are you telling me that JESUS, that came through this lineage was not a Jew? Later they were scattered into different nations and under different rulers, Rome being one. Why don't you read the book of Isaiah and Nehemiah. Now they are once more in their homeland which tells me something very important is going on here. Just my thoughts
Thank you, Peldrum for the news on what's going on in Iraq. It's hard to believe that a group of terrorists can do so much damage. They built a tunnel that was reinforced with concrete that went from Gaza to Israel (don't remember what part). I saw inside of it.
SteveR, its either plausible deniability or willful ignorance. not sure which one. its ok to fund the jihadists and once the slaughter is nearly complete send in "help"?? that's called "funding both sides"... the church doesn't have a clue what has befallen America. Lord have mercy on us. Unbelievable, they blame the war on the Iraqis! Helloooo! Who invaded them and who put saddam in power and who created the current bounderies? Which countries are supplying jihadists and for what purposes? It is a dangerous thing to put the political sway of the use of the most power military in history in the hands of people who base their politics on what is going to get them into heaven faster.

(Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama authorised air strikes on Iraq to protect Christians and prevent "genocide" of tens of thousands of members of an ancient sect sheltering on a desert mountaintop from Islamic State fighters threatening to exterminate them.
In Baghdad, where politicians have been paralysed by infighting while the state falls apart, the top Shi'ite cleric all but ordered Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to quit, a bold intervention that could bring the veteran ruler down.
The United States began to drop relief supplies to refugees from the ancient Yazidi sect, but there was no sign yet of air strikes, which Obama authorised for the first time since pulling troops out in 2011. http://uk.reuters.com/article/2014/08/08/uk-iraq-security-idUKKBN0G70L620140808 =========
Also. "The Pentagon said American aircraft launched an attack on artillery used by militants against Kurdish forces defending the city of Irbil.
Two F/A-18 aircraft dropped 500-pound laser-guided bombs on a mobile artillery piece,..." independent.co.uk/
Has anyone heard the latest on Obama's decision to give aid to the christians in Iraq who are living in the mountians to keep from being slaughtered? He is going to send food and supplies by airplane and will be using bombs to blow up places that need to be blown up. Will there be civilian casualities? Will America be called down because they are killing innocent people and hurled insults at and hated because of it and they are not even defending themselves. No one has started shooting rockets at us, yet. He wiil not be sending in ground troops because we are not going to be a part of Iraq's war.We'll see how this all turns out.
I pray that the Lord give us light on this subject because we pay our billions upon billions to make these wores happen, we spend our sundays praying the success of this, and we put our political weight on destruction of the ME..... not that it matters to us, but the result has been the genocide of Christians in the Middle East.
For the amill/orthodox follower of Christ, they recognize the beheadings of Revelations 20 and know that if their own people are contributing to this slaughter that they are part of the false system or Babylon.
so I'm sorry, its not as easy as having a cup of tea together.
I love my brethren dearly but once they become ashamed of the gospel of Christ and turn to another they are the ones walking away from the protections of the faith, not I.
the end times with CHrist is not about demanding and grabbing land, but about remaining faithful to the witness of Christ, the house of Israel has Jew and Gentiles who's law is written on their hearts. May thy Kingdom come.

You know, it doesn't really bother me when someone disagrees with me but it bothers me when they get angry with me for disagreeing. God will reveal His truths to us if it is necessary and some things are unclear and we can only speculate because it's not necessary. Some on here think they got it right and by Jove you better get with the program. Most things that are debatable are not necessary for salvation and He wil l give us light on that. It's so simple that even a child can understand but we add this and that until no one can understand exactly how to get saved or even if they are saved. I know that I know that I am saved and no one can make me me believe that I am not. That's why your friendship means more to me than being right about the rapture or rather when it will happen. We both could be wrong.I do see that we are living in some perlious times and we need the love and support of other believers.
Amen Dolores!....have a blessed day! Maranatha Lord Jesus!

You think that motley group of land grabbers in Tel Aviv is Hebrew? The House of Israel? Ive got news for you, todays Israeli population has less Hebrew DNA in it than Gaza. Judaism was hijacked by proselytizing Samaratins 18 centuries ago, the only thing these people have in common with Caiaphas is that they deny Jesus is the CHRIST. These antichrists hit pay dirt when they found Eastern Europeans that didnt want to pay taxes to the Byzantines, so now you have a bloodthirsty converted holy people in your image. Whether Ashkenazism, Sephard, Mizrahim, Magravim, these are proselytes from the centuries. Most Hebrews went into captivity, their DNA dots the entire Middle East and most are now Muslim.
2 Kings 17:6 In the ninth year of Hoshea the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes
These NEVER returned. Good luck getting actual blood Israelites to todays Israeli terror state
