NEWS BRIEF:  "Israel begins ground war in Gaza", Special to WorldTribune.com, April 11, 2001.

"GAZA — Israel has launched a limited ground war against Palestinian targets in the Gaza Strip. For the first time, Israeli troops entered the Gaza city of Khan Yunis and destroyed Palestinian Authority military positions and nearby homes. Palestinian sources said about 100 troops, backed by tanks and bulldozers, were involved in the Israeli operation overnight Wednesday."

For months now, especially since Ariel Sharon took office as Israeli Prime Minister, Israel has officially put out the feelers that, maybe just maybe, she was ready to begin taking territory back that she has previously given over to Palestinian Authority control.  Arafat and his trusted executive leadership not only condemned this idea, but warned that Israel would face all-out war if she would ever attempt to militarily "invade" Israel to take back territory. 

Now, that Israel has "invaded" the Gaza strip with soldiers and tanks and bulldozers, we can only wait to see what Arafat will do.  Will he order his troops to counterattack, using some of the modern heavy weapons they are reported to possess, or will they shrink back from confrontation with the vastly superior Israel Defense Force?

Arutz-7 Israeli News is reporting that, tonight, representatives of Israel and Arafat will meet at the official residence of the U.S. ambassador to talk "security issues".  We do not expect any breakthrough at this meeting, since it follows by just a few days another such fruitless meeting, also about "security issues".  In fact, on the way back from this previous meeting, the lead vehicle in the Palestinian convoy fired upon Israeli soldiers and the soldiers fired back.  Reports from this meeting reported that Israeli and Palestinian leaders very nearly came to blows, as tempers were at a boiling point.

Let us return to our feature article for more information:

"Israeli military sources confirmed the operation. They said the aim was to destroy a PA military post that was shelling the nearby Gush Katif bloc of settlements. 'What happened last night was clearly a defensive operation,' Israeli Defense Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer said. Palestinian sources reported that two PA officers were killed and another 20 were injured in the fighting. The sources said this was the first time Israeli military forces operated openly in territory controlled by the PA."

In the past, Israel would wait until the wee hours of the morning to "retaliate" against Palestinian targets for Arab attacks, knowing that the buildings being destroyed were empty, or nearly so.  This tactic served to put Arafat on "notice" that further attacks would not be tolerated, while limiting civilian casualties at the attack site.  This Barak tactic scared no one in the Arafat camp, and was totally ineffective.  This operation is the first Sharon initiative, and he has put everyone on notice that he will not hesitate to cause casualties, civilian or otherwise.


What was the Arab response to this new tactic?  Are they cowering in fear and about to cave in to Israeli and American pressure?  Hardly, if the last sentence in this article is any indication.  "Palestinian sources said the PA is training thousands of recruits in five training camps throughout the Gaza Strip. The sources said the training is meant to stop an Israeli military invasion of the strip."

Therefore, the Palestinians are reacting with more aggressiveness, as they accelerate "training" in order to "stop an Israeli military invasion of the strip".  No one really believes that the Palestinians could even brunt such an Israeli attack, much less stop it.  What Arafat has in mind is to so engage the Israelis in internal conflict that they would be forced to commit larger numbers of their regular military to put the Palestinians down, even to the point of calling some of its units from its borders facing either Syria, Jordan, or Egypt.  The Egyptian Army is on full alert and very close to Gaza.  They have just finished "exercises" that were called for the express purpose of going to war against Israel.  Egyptian Army units could be attacking Gaza on behalf of Arafat and against Israel in a matter of minutes.

In the event of a larger-scale Israeli attack on Gaza, Arafat is likely to order his units in other, more northern localities within Israel, to launch an all-out attack.  This tactic would force Israel to have to deal with several dozen flashpoints simultaneously, and might force some redeployment of troops from the border areas.  At that moment, the Arab plan calls for Syria, Jordan, and Egypt to begin an all-out military assault, beginning with aerial bombardment with rockets, perhaps including those Iraq has positioned at the confluence of Syria and Jordan [Read NEWS1474 for full details].  Arab rockets are said to be tipped with chemical, biological, and nuclear warheads.  If this is the case, the Middle East could explode instantly into a conflagration that would be truly Biblical in scope.

NEWS BRIEF:  " 'Conflict is turning into war' in the Middle East", by Alan Phillips, Jerusalem, Telegram U.K., April 11, 2001.

"THE Israeli army increased efforts yesterday to stop the Palestinians using mortar bombs as both sides admitted that the six-month conflict has reached new levels. An aide to the Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, said the almost daily use of mortars by the Palestinians amounted to a "declaration of war" - a phrase echoed by Abdel-Razeq al-Majaideh, the Palestinian security chief in the Gaza Strip. The mortar has significantly boosted the Palestinians' firepower and given them the ability to hit targets inside Israel."

This operation has thus not only increased the level of military activity, but has increased the war of words.  The Palestinian leadership has been using the term, "Declaration of War" over the past several weeks to refer to different actions by the IDF, but I believe this is the first time a high-ranking Israeli official has used the same term.  Thus, do both sides now consider themselves to be in a condition of war?  Since ideas and words carry heavy meaning and even heavier action, this escalation in words may turn out to be very important.


"Press release On the new massacre in Khan Younis" -- "Zionist massacres are persisting in a show of spiteful Jewish terrorism against our unarmed people who are defending their lands and holy shrines with modest and simple potentials. The enemy committed yet another carnage against our brothers in the Khan Younis refugee camp and Al-Amal suburb using tanks and heavy machineguns in a savage and indiscriminate manner inflicting numerous martyrs and scores of wounded."

This Palestinian propaganda alleges that the Israeli Defense Force [Zionist] have committed massacres during their overnight intrusion into the town of Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip.  We report this propaganda, not as serious news reporting, but just to show you how the Palestinians specifically, and Arabs generally, are being inflamed with the hatred of the Jews.  This propaganda makes it very plain that the Palestinians want war, and want it now.

Hamas continues its diatribe:

"The Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, condemns that continuous terrorism and hails our heroic people who confronted the Zionist enemy and forced its troops to retreat despite the wounds that our people suffered in Khan Younis. Hamas further affirms that it would go ahead with its reprisal attacks against such massacres and that it would continue along the road of Jihad and resistance until defeat of that criminal occupation and liberation of the lands and sanctities."

Notice the Hamas threat to intensify its attacks in reprisal for this attack.  However, this Israeli attack was in reprisal for mortar attacks from within this Palestinian town against Jewish neighborhoods.  This tit-for-tat has gone on for some months now, but is now threatening to blow up the entire region in a huge conflagration.

Hamas ends their propaganda page by saying, “And Allah hath full power and control over His affairs;  but most among mankind know it not.”  [http://www.palestine-info.net/hamas/


With all this turmoil, and a state of near-war in the Middle East, we can only look to the Bible for guidance as to what is seemingly about to occur.  We know that, as the real End of the Age occurs, a number of critically important Biblical prophecies are awaiting fulfillment, waiting only on God's timing.


PROPHECY BRIEF:  Obadiah 15-18 -- Set in End Times because verse 15 begins with the prophetic words, "For the Day of the Lord ...".  God consistently uses these words to denote End of the Age prophecies, and this time is no exception.  Let us review this prophecy in some detail, so that our later discussion will have a framework in which to occur. [Quotes below taken from Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary, quoting from the Amplified side].

"For the Day of the Lord is near upon all the nations.  As you have done, it shall be done to you; your dealings will return upon your own head.  For as you have drunk upon the mountain of My holiness [desecrating it in the wild revelry of the destroyers] so shall all the nations drink continually [in turn, of My wrath]; yes, they shall drink, talk foolishly, and swallow down [the full measure of punishment] and they shall be [destroyed] as though they had not been. [Verses 15-16]

"But on Mount Zion [in Jerusalem] there shall be deliverance [for those who escape], and it shall be holy; and the house of Jacob shall possess its [own former] possessions. The house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame , but the house of Esau shall be stubble; they shall kindle and burn them and consume them, and there shall be no survivor of the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken it." [Verses 17-18; Emphasis added]

As we detail in NEWS1422, the Palestinian people are the original House of Esau.  A fire shall leap out of Israel, consuming the Palestinians, who shall burn like "stubble', and be consumed, for "there shall be no survivor of the House of Esau, for the Lord has spoken it."  We have speculated that Israel may be use the Fuel Air Bomb to accomplish this unbelievable destruction, which is why Israel has totally encircled the towns, villages, and cities of the Palestinians, so they  can ensure that their attack does not also kill Jewish citizens.


The remaining three verses [Obadiah 19-21] tell in great detail how completely Israel will expand out to possess the land God had promised to Israel.  This land includes Lebanon, part of Syria, two-thirds of Jordan [Moab and Edom provinces], and the Negev Desert.  When Israel expands her borders following this war with the Palestinians, Egyptians, Syrians, and Jordanians, she will not only win, but will send her armed forces out to occupy all the land God had promised them.

In Amos 9:15b, God promises Israel that once He returns her to her land, "they shall no more be torn up out of their land which I gave them, says the Lord your God."


But, God will also bring about the purification of Mount Zion through this war.  Notice in Obadiah, verse 17, God says: "But on Mount Zion [in Jerusalem] there shall be deliverance [for those who escape], and it shall be holy."  The only way that Mount Zion [the Temple Mount] could be made holy in God's sight is for the Muslim Dome of the Rock to be removed!  Now, that is a very interesting concept, because the New World Order Plan to produce Antichrist calls for just such a destruction of the Dome of the Rock [Read NEWS1404, "Arafat's Blunder On CNN May Have Revealed An Arab Plot To Ignite The Middle East Conflagration By Bombing Their Own Holy Places" for full details]. 

Since the most important pagan edifice on Mount Zion [Temple Mount] is the Muslim Dome of the Rock, then the question immediately coming to mind is, "could the Arabs be planning to blow up the Dome and blame it on the Jew, so as to instantly unite all one billion Muslims in the world, in a Holy War against Israel?"  When I read this CNN report, I immediately reached back to my bookcase to pull down the most important New World Order book that details how the Antichrist is going to deceive the world.  In a matter of seconds, I had located the place in which the Dome of the Rock is mentioned.  Listen: 

"If the Messiah is to appear, then he must be produced. And producing the Messiah ... is just as much a function of humanity as of Divinity ... There are doubtless many Jews ... who will be willing to regard him as their long-awaited Messiah.  Some Muslims may take a similar view ... it may be possible for the New David to ride into Jerusalem in all his resplendent majesty. Note the word 'ride' ... on a donkey as predicted in Zechariah 9:9 ... it would seem advisable for the new Messiah to repeat it, donkey and all ... The processional route will, of course, lie directly across the Kidron ravine, as close as possible to the Temple Mount ... he must be duly enthroned and anointed with oil (in token of Psalm 45:6-7) amid the rubble of the Dome of the Rock ..." [The Armageddon Script , p. 233-35]

Antichrist will receive the recognition of being the Jewish Messiah as he is standing "amid the rubble of the Dome of the Rock !  Most interestingly, our search amongst the propaganda of the Palestinians and Hamas [the terrorist organization supporting Arafat], turned up an unbelievable fact: 

Palestinian propagandists are already preparing their people for the blowing up of the Dome of the Rock!  To verify this, just go to the Palestinian Authority website at http://www.palestine-info.net/alaqsa/willalaqsa.htm where you will find several scenarios listed as to how the Jews are going to blow up the Dome [Called Al-Aqsa by the Arabs].  Therefore, the deed is not only prophesied in Obadiah, but it is now verified twice from Palestinian sources -- Arafat on CNN on September 7, 2000, and now on the official Palestinian Authority website.  Arafat will likely be God's human agent by which God will fulfill His prophecy in Obadiah 17, that "On Mount Zion there shall be deliverance ... and it shall be holy ".  Arafat does not realize he is going to purge Mount Zion of the pagan Dome so as to make it holy; he thinks he is doing it because such an act would instantly unite all one billion Muslims in the world into such a frenzy that Israel cannot possibly survive the ensuing, furious onslaught.


BIBLICAL PROPHECY For Jerusalem In End of the Age: "And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it." (Zechariah 12:3)

To see that this prophecy is set to begin its series of fulfillments, all you need to do is to watch your Daily News concerning the Middle East.  Since Israel came back to her land, the Arabs have suddenly been preaching that Jerusalem and the Dome of the Rock are sacred to Islam.  Therefore, when Arafat blows the Dome of the Rock, he shall immediately unite all One Billion Muslims in a Holy War against Israel.  You probably will see Muslim nations in the Far East sending troops and/or military units to the Middle East to fight against Israel.

In due time, you shall see Russia roar out of the Middle East to lead a consortium of nations against Jerusalem, in fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39. [Read NEWS1037, NEWS1057, NEWS1120, and NEWS1330 for full details]


"And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. {Joel 2:30-31, context is Day of the Lord, which is Tribulation terminology. Again, the reference to the darkening of the sun and moon parallels Matthew 24, which is definitely Tribulation}. The reference to "wonders in the heavens and earth, blood, fire, and pillars of smoke" with the sun being turned into darkness, most definitely sounds like nuclear weapons.

We see armies currently in and around Israel that are armed with atomic and neutron bombs.  Clearly, the attacks on Israel using nuclear weapons will be so intense one has to wonder how Israel can survive at all.  This brings us to our next point:  Israel's future shall look so bleak that God Himself will have to intervene, using Israel's National Guardian Angel, Michael, to protect Israel.

Before God delivers Israel, matters will look mighty bleak 'on the ground' in Israel. The rest of the world, also, will believe that Israel is doomed, that she surely cannot beat the combined forces that are thrown against her. In fact, God foretold exactly this type situation, and how Israel will be delivered. "And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book." {Daniel 12:1} Matters will get so serious that Michael, the great Archangel whose primary responsibility is to protect Israel, will have to 'stand up' to come to her defense. Whenever anyone in Heaven has to stand up to accomplish his mission, it is a grave matter, requiring all their attention. During all these great battles swirling around Israel, Michael will have to 'stand up' to deliver Israel.


BIBLICAL PROPHECY For the Middle East In End of the Age: "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." (Joel 3:1-2)

God is saying that, after He brings Israel back to her land as a nation [Fulfilled May 15, 1948]  He shall bring the nations of the entire world in wave after wave to the Valley of Jehoshaphat, which is a generic term for "Middle East".  There, God shall bring judgment upon all the nations.  And, it will be bloody, and it will involve mighty armies.


BIBLICAL PROPHECY OF ANNIHILATING JUDGMENT AGAINST DAMASCUS, CAPITAL OF SYRIA: Isaiah 17:1 "The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap." When God begins a pronouncement with the word, "Burden", He is signifying calamitous judgment. In this 'burden', God is foretelling that Damascus, the capital of Syria, will be reduced to a "ruinous heap", and shall cease being a city. This kind of devastation has never befallen Damascus. Archeologists call Damascus the 'longest continuously occupied city in the world". In its long, long history, Damascus has never, ever been so thoroughly destroyed that it has ceased being a city. But, certainly, in this coming war with Israel, Damascus could be this thoroughly destroyed if she were attacked with Israeli nuclear weapons.


BIBLICAL PROPHECY CONCERNING EGYPT IN LAST DAYS: Isaiah 19:1 "The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it." The nation of Egypt has been invaded and conquered so many times, it may be easy to dismiss this prophecy as one which has already taken place. Yet, this prophecy is Judgment #5, issued by God in the "Ten Burden" segment, starting with Chapter 13 (Babylon-Iraq) and continuing on to Chapter 23, Tyre.13 Since many of these "Burdens" or Judgments, definitely occur in the Last Days, it is quite possible that this one concerning Egypt occurs during the Last Days also. Certainly, the destruction of Egypt during this time would explain why God does not list Egypt as one of the participants in the Russian-led invasion later on [in fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39].

God seemingly calls the nations personally into the Middle East for this judgment.  "Proclaim this among the nations:  Prepare war ... Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears ... Hasten and come, all you nations, round about, and assemble yourselves:  there You, O Lord, will bring down Your mighty ones (Your warriors).  Let the nations bestir themselves and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat, for there will I sit to judge all the nations round about.  Put in the sickle, for the vintage harvest is ripe; come, get down and tread the grapes for the winepress is full; the vats overflow, for the wickedness of the peoples is great.  Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision!  For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision." [Joel 3:9-14]

"In that day will the Lord guard and defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem ... I will make it My aim to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." [Zechariah 12:8-9]

Watch the Middle East, for that region of the world holds the key to the events throughout the rest of the world.  Antichrist will make his appearance riding East of Jerusalem on the back of a donkey colt, and all events will occur according to God's timetable for Israel.

Events in the Middle East seem ready to spiral out of control.  Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.

If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.

We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.

Finally, we would love to hear from you.
