In the valley of decision
At some point, the bible says, it is going to happen. It has to happen. On of the biggest prophetical themes in the bible regarding the end times, is the scenario where the enemies of Israel are working as feverishly as they can to part God’s land, and take it for themselves. The book of Joel lays it out like this:
“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. 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 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.” Joel 3 (selected verses.)
This is exactly what is happening right now with Palestine’s bid for statehood at the UN, scheduled for September. If that happens, like many think it will, it is possible that we will see the fulfillment of Joel’s prophecy. I do not say this lightly or casually. September 20th as a date is packed chock full with meaning.
What’s so special about September 20th?
There is a lot of potentially prophetic events taking place between the 20th – 29th of September. The following is from John McTernan’s INSIGHTS:
“The disasters are hitting now literally every week. Louisiana is drowning while Texas, which it borders, is burning up with drought caused fires. Vermont was just smashed with the worst disaster in its history. Please pray and intercede because America has kindled the anger of the LORD. The sodomite marriage and open homosexuality in the military were the issues the Lord is calling America on.
The Comet Elenin
So, you are probably wondering, what about the comet Elenin? In early September, the comet will cross earth’s orbit and be between the earth and the sun. Then on September 26, there will be an alignment with the sun, comet, and earth. This could be at the exact time the UN is debating the creation of a Palestinian state! The comet will be closet to the earth around October 15, which is during the Feast of Tabernacles.
At this time, the earth will pass directly behind the comet as it crosses earth’s orbit. This comet has a hyperbolic orbit which means it will never return. It is very possible that three incredible events are going to occur at the same time this September. The United Nations could be debating the dividing of Israel and Jerusalem in direct violation of the world of God. This will happen during the biblical Fall feasts. At this very time, a comet that seems to have a strange affect on earthquakes will be inside earth’s orbit and aligning itself with the sun and earth! It is very possible that there could be powerful disasters hitting the earth this September/October, as the world comes against Israel.
I am watching this comet very closely as the alignment between it, the earth and sun coincides with enormous earthquakes on the earth. As information develops, I will report it. If the UN General Assembly recognizes a Palestinian state, it will put these nations in direct conflict with the Holy God of Israel. In the past, this has resulted in awesome disasters.
In addition, the sodomizing of the US military will take affect on September 24, which will put it right in the middle of all these events. It is frightening to think of the curse that is now on America and our military as the Middle East is heading towards war. America has done everything to provoke the LORD to judgment as the government pressures Israel to divide Jerusalem and promotes open homosexuality amongst the military. America is looking at awesome judgment while the vast majority of pastors and Christians still seem to have no fear of the LORD judging the nation. May the LORD God of Israel protect you as you look to Him in this time of coming judgment. source – John McTernan’s INSIGHTS Blog
An Israeli soldier fires tear gas canisters at Palestinian protesters during a protest march at the Qalandia checkpoint between the West Bank city of Ramallah and Jerusalem.
ELAZAR, West Bank — Israeli forces are seeking to prevent bloodshed when Palestinians march in support of a statehood drive this month, but they are preparing for worst-case scenarios, even authorizing West Bank settlers to shoot at Palestinians who approach their communities.
Palestinians say the rallies will be peaceful — a view shared by Israel’s own security assessments — and will steer clear of any settlements. Yet, the combustible atmosphere and the long and deadly history of Israeli-Palestinian violence are raising the specter that events might spin out of control.
For the Palestinians, the mass marches are intended to boost their campaign to get the U.N. to recognize an independent state, a strategy they are trying because negotiations aimed at bringing about a state through a peace deal with Israel have been stalled for two years.
Settlers living on land the Palestinians want for their future state have long been targets for militant attacks; likewise, some settlers have attacked Palestinian civilians. The fear among settlers now is that even unarmed crowds — if large enough — could overrun their communities.
Ilan Paz, a retired Israeli general who served in the West Bank for a decade, said a scenario with hundreds of casualties was not unthinkable.
“You can’t know how this sort of protest will end,” Paz said. “All sorts of local incidents can lead to injuries, and this can cause a deterioration in the situation.”
Israel’s army is training soldiers used to battling gunmen in non-lethal riot control tactics and inviting settlers to watch the drills at a military camp in a rural part of central Israel.
The mass demonstrations are set for around the time of the Sept. 13-22 United Nations General Assembly session, where the Palestinians hope to be granted official endorsement as a state. Some doubt the rallies will take place at all, however, and several Palestinian activist groups say they will not take part, believing the effort would achieve little.
Preparations undertaken by police are expected to cost Israel about $20 million, according to a senior police officer. Purchases include 16 long-range tear gas launchers, 15 trained Belgian horses to bolster the police’s mounted forces, and a weeklong riot training course for a quarter of the nation’s 28,000 police officers, he said.
Police expect Israeli-controlled east Jerusalem, home to 250,000 Palestinians, to be a flash point, he added. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the precautions.
Security forces are stockpiling tear gas, stun grenades, water cannons and other non-lethal weapons. At a military camp about an hour’s drive from Israel’s metropolitan center in Tel Aviv, troops are practicing civilian crowd control. source - Fox News
