“Target was truckload of weapons, going from Syria to Lebanon,” says diplomat, adding that cache likely not chemical weapons.

Israeli forces attacked a convoy on the Syrian-Lebanese border on Wednesday, sources told Reuters, after Israelis warned their Lebanese enemy Hezbollah against using chaos in Syria to acquire anti-aircraft missiles or chemical weapons. source – JPost

  • Go Israel Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Yep-pum, could be Isaiah 17:1…

    Harbinger ‘Ison’ can be witnessed by the fall of 013, the foolish ignored the 011 quake in ‘District of Columbia. Those that call it’s citizen peasant often get Judged sooner than later! The devil loves making small talk of such in ‘their face’ warnings!

    • With the threats of wiping Israel off the face of the map what did they expect?

  • Prophecy Isaiah 35:14-15 is starting to be fulfilled and Isaiah 17:1 is coming soon

  • How exciting this all is. God is Good!!!

    Pray for Israel!!


      WE ARE.

      • We were told to watch. What were we told to watch for? We will told to watch for signs and the antichrist and many other things that come before the rapture.

        We were not told to watch for the just the rapture and we would not have to worry about any of the rest of it.

        That goes completely against why the bible told us all the things to watch for. While your watching for the rapture Gods true believers will be watching for everything that was given to them to watch for.

        The rapture happens at the day of the Lord.

        The amazing thing is after your done watching that video and you have figured out your argument to circumvent chapter 4 and 5 of 1 Thessalonians and how they aren’t talking about the same thing. I will then show you 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 where the same things are said only this time in the same chapter and 3 connected verses all about the rapture happening at the day of the Lord. So you see there is no way around that one.

        2 Thessalonians 2:1-3
        King James Version (KJV)
        Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (second coming), and by our gathering together unto him (rapture), 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.(day of the Lord)(again rapture happens at day of the Lord)
        3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;(antichrist revealed first)

  • Yes! This could soon start the Obadiah WAR where israel defeats hamas and takes back most of her covenant land! Psalm 83 talks about this war also! When my girls were young, Christ with Moses appeared in a dream to me and showed me this OBH. War would take place when my girls were grown! It’s exciting to see scripture fulfilled right before our very eyes! I love it that God confirms visions and dreams if they are biblical! He loves showing us the future so that we will be prepared and not afraid! Jesus your wonderful and your name is GREAT! Things will start happening quickly once this Obadiah war begins! Hold on to Your Faith because prohecy is about to Explode!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shalom!

  • Reginald

    Bravo to the IAF. That must send strong signal to Mahmoud Amadinejad,Hassan Nasrallah,and the head of Hamas to get ready to get their 72 wild eyes houris virgins,that Allah promised them in his paradise.

    • Little do they know their virgins will be burning with them; BECAUSE ONLY GOD HAS A PARADISE WITHIN HIS KINGDOM IN HEAVEN.

  • God bless Israel. Maranatha.Prophecy being fulfilled.praying for Israel.

    • AMEN.




  • I hope this does not sound like a stupid question but can anyone tell me the chronological order of events to come (ie wars, ect) I tried to figure it out earlier but got a bit confused.

    • The Book of Daniel and Revelation will direct you in the right direction.

    • Ruby, this is the chronological order that I have understood will take place: Isaiah 17:1 (Damascus destroyed); Psalm 83( other Arab nations against Israel, destroyed); Ezekiel 38:18 (Gog/Russia) and then all h—
      breaks loose.
      I can say for sure that God has it under control, and one day we will be with Him in Heaven for all eternity.
      God Bless

  • Ruby, I’ll do my best to help you figure it out!
    The Obadiah war is not preached in churches like the gog magog war, or armageddon war. The OBH. war is first where Israel fights her enemies that are wanting her driven into the sea. They are syria, gaza, lebanon, etc.. According to the bible Damascus will be destroyed in this war, and all of hamas will be destroyed! Israel will gain back most of her covenant land and after this war many more jews will return to the Holy Land. This is what we are seeing right now about to begin in the news! We are witnessing prophecy being fulfilled before our very eyes! Praise the Lord!
    Next will be the Gog Magog war where God will defeat the nations to the north of Israel as well as Iran, Turkey, Ethiopia, etc… Israel will be burying their bodies for 7 months and burning the weapons for fuel for 7 years.
    The anti-Christ will make a peace agreement for 7 years also, but will break the treaty after 3 and one half years. The tribulation starts when he breaks the covenant! It will last another three and on half years. That’s when all hell will break loose and God will allow satan to overcome the saints of God and kill many of them for not taking the mark of the beast.
    At the end of the last 3 and one half years , the Armageddon war will take place with china, russia etc…Christ will return to judge the anti- christ and the false religious prophet. He will fight against those nations coming against Israel for the last time! He will at that coming, rapture the church that is still alive and raise the saints who were killed. In fact, the dead will rise first, then those who remain alive through the tribulation will be raptured to meet him in the air!
    We are entering the fulfillment of Last days Prophesy! Where men’s hearts will fail them for fear as they watch all this unfold. God’s people will be strong and do exploits according to the bible! Praise God! The bible says precious in the sight of God are the deaths of his saints! He will be with us and give us peace in the midst of the wars if we keep our faith in HIM strong and pray! Fear not, for the Lord is with you!
    I hope this has helped you some. All of this is in the bible! I read alot and have read through the bible many many times. The Lord keeps giving me understanding and I know it’s to help others. Shalom my sister!

  • Ruby, Some may tell you that they have the order of events figured out but beware if they do. Its best to stick to your Bible and listen to teachers of prophecy, but, notice that I said stick to your Bible first. The Lord gives a real good idea of the order of them but in my opinion He keeps them scrambled just enough to keep us studying. As you see them happen, scratch them off the list and watch for the next one. What’s cool is that He has called your name to be one that is not totally blinded to all of this like most of the people we meet each day. Keep at the front of your mind that our job at this time is to introduce those who are unaware to our Lord and Savior Jesus who will deliver us from the wrath to come. And most important. . . Stay in prayer and do not fear because He will never leave you nor forsake you. God bless you!!!

    • Absolutely correct. I know your reading your bible Ruby. You have the same information we have. Basically all any of us can do is speculate. We are looking into the future with the help of Gods word. Basically John who wrote revelations had to do this and Daniel had to do this as well. But they did it directly with Gods help. We have that direct help from God through his word from Daniel, John and others.

      The information is in there. But again we are still looking into the future so yes we know the events, we are not sure of the exact order or exact time.

      But we have been given signs and a time frame. There is no doubt we are seeing those signs. All any of us can do is try to speculate (which is not Gods word). NewMan is right. Stick to the bible.

      Acts 17:11
      These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

      • AMEN.

      • Thank you so much everyone! I appreciate all the time and effort you put in to respond. I stumbled over finding the Obadiah war. However, ironically last night I watched End TIme Ministries and he did the show on the sequence of events in end times! My lucky night! I actually took notes. I am going to compare them to my bible tonight and make sure they all line up properly. Thanks again everyone!

    • PRAY FOR THE “REPENTANCE, DELIVERANCE, AND SALVATION” of souls – including your own – IN PREPARING them – as well as yourself – FOR “THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH”.


  • Not 100% sure but based on what we have looked at. We know that there is going to have to be a peace treaty and some sort of temple or at least an alter set up for the abomination to take place. But before this leader does or even comes into play to do this it looks like a major war or event will take place first.

    It will either have to be a war or world economic collapse or both which will bring about some sort of agreement. As of right now no one is agreeing to anything, So a major event will have to take place for this to happen. This is what I see as happening. To me it will be WWIII of which the U.S. is going to be removed from the world scene or rendered temporarily disabled from world scene for a short time.

    Israel of course will for the most part sustain little damage but everything around it will be wiped out giving her greater control and world power. Which as a result will cause many countries and world leaders to have to negotiate with Israel and Israel to negotiate with them because of the devastation and also because of world trade and the economic world situation will force this as well.

    In any event things will happen rather quickly once this stuff starts unfolding.


  • It is a catch 22 for Israel as far as events unfolding. The more powerful Israel becomes in the world it will also force Israel to have to negotiate more with many nations. As a result Israel for a short time will be duped right up until some clown decides to call themselves God in their holy place.

    I have a ton of Jewish friends. Trust me it is not going to be pretty when someone says they are God in their holy place. The Jews will immediately throw a fit when they should be running. Some of them will run but many of them are going to have a fit. Satan will also have a fit cause they did not respect him when he called himself God.

    • PRAY THAT your FRIENDS WILL “NOW” GIVE their lives to CHRIST JESUS so that the anti-CHRIST will “never” be able to find them.

  • In any event America will have to take a major step back from world situations for this stuff to take place. So whether we or rendered incapacitated temporarily due to economics or war or both. The world situation will still be monitored and controlled by U.S. interests. So unless America is subdued or removed from those situations, then things will not change.

    • Until President Obanma wises up and sides with Israel, rather than his Muslim brothers, America will not be capable of taking any step back.

  • I believe America is being rebuilt during all this by God to be one of the nations for the new age here on earth. But again its going to be rebuilt from the foundations which means America is going to be rocked like never before.

  • New York, this is the Obadiah war, and psalm 83. You can look it up if you want to know more about what this war is about. It is the war God showed me would take place when my daughters were grown women and now they are grown women! Jesus appeared in a dream and showed me Obadiah. He held that book of the bible in the air and said behold! He showed me it would take place in a dark time on the earth. It’s getting very very dark! Israel will fight hamas in lebanon, syria, gaza, etc.. God calls some of these nations different names in Obadiah. If you put a map of todays Israel and her enemies, over the ancient map names you can see that Obadiah is speaking of these nations we are hearing about in the news! Israel will gain back all or much of her covenant land in this coming OBH>war! This will make way for more jews to return to the Holy land as prophesied in the bible. The gog and magog war will come next after Israel is at peace for some time!
    Amageddon happens right before the coming of the Lord! Jesus comes back to save his people Israel and judge the anti-christ and false prophet! Praise the Lord for allowing us to be alive to witness his prophetic word come to pass! Peace to all who Love our Lord Jesus christ!

    • You can see that is why I mentioned Israel would become more powerful on the world seen then even now. When she is living securely in the land her wealth and everything will grow exponentially forcing Russia and other nations to surround her. Causing others to ask what are they doing have they come to take treasure or spoils. So I agree Debra

      • Revelation 20 tells me that after Satan is loosed from the bottomless pit 1000 years after the beast and the false Prophet are cast into the blake that burns with fire and brimstone GOD HIMSELF WILL SEND FIRE AND BRIMSTONE UPON Gog and Magog BEFORE ENTERING ETERNITY in accordance to Revelation 21.

    • According to Revelation 20 there still has to be the Millenial Reign of CHRIST JESUS after the 7 year reign of the Anti-CHRIST.

  • There is no doubt damascus as mentioned in the bible has the bells ringing. I agree Debra.

  • Isaiah 17:1 The Burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a ity, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
    17:7 At that day shall a man look to his MAKER, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel!
    17:8 And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands, neither shall respect that which his fingers have made, either groves, or images.
    17:9 In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of ISRAEL: and there shall be DESOLATION.
    Get ready to see God give Israel victory over hamas and other enemies, along with getting covenant land back!

  • I wish we (the USA) could say we have their backs, but I have to warn them, that the Obama administration will not back them up.
    However the LORD will. And faithful Chrisians will.

  • The Lord is enough for Israel! He wants them to recognize him so he won’t let America back them up very much! Israel will be backed in a corner by God so that they will call on HIM to deliver them! America needs to stop being God for Israel, so that they can repent and turn to their Messiah Jesus Christ in the end. Don’t worry brother, God predicted all this way back in the old testament. He knows what he’s doing and will be victorious over Israel. He will bring a remnant through the fire and they will recognize Jesus in the end. They are very secular right now and need to turn back to the God of Abraham, Issaic, and Jacob. God will put them in a place where they will have to see his deliverance. America has to be out of the way for them to see God only! America has it’s own sin judgments to worry about! Lord send your Spirit to America to convict people of these horrible sins of abortion, homosexual marriages, adultrey, fornication, lies, greed, etc……………And stop America from dividing the land of Israel! Shalom!

  • They forgot to tell Hamas that the 72 virgins are males…

  • Surprisingly, Many muslims are having visitations from the Lord and are becoming Christians. I guess some of them didn’t buy the virgins in heaven story! Now they will be in heaven with their creator Jesus! A much better deal by far!

    • There is probably a lot more too but they are living in fear that if they convert they will be killed. Its sad.

  • Let us pray that this will not happen. Although I can’t see it not happening since the bible says 1 3rd the population is going to be wiped out somewhere in these last days. Thats 2.5 billion people. 🙁

    Let us pray!
