Arutz Sheva: “Hezbollah officials say they are preparing to use the strategies and techniques they learned fighting Syrian rebels along the border with Lebanon to conquer Israel’s northern Galilee region.

The Iranian-backed Shia Islamist group has been making steady gains in its hard-fought campaign to wrest control of the Qalamoun region in Syria from Sunni rebels, including jihadists from Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front, despite itself incurring significant losses.

But although that battle is still ongoing, a series of remarks by Hezbollah officials and propaganda outlets, translated by MEMRI, reveal that the terror group still has its eye on a future conflict with Israel.”

Opinion: Galilee is a stepping stone for the ultimate prize –  Jerusalem. Not just for Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Palestinian Authority, who are within close proximity, but for the whole world, Zechariah 14:2.

Here’s why:

Zechariah 3:2 “And the Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand (Judah) plucked from the fire (delivered from the Captivity)?”

And God told the nations that Jerusalem will confound them:

Zechariah 12:2-3 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.

And in that day (near the end of the tribulation), the Lord will remove the scales from their eyes (Acts 9:18).

Zechariah 12:10 “And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”

Wow.

The Guardian: “Saudi Arabia is advertising for eight new executioners, recruiting extra staff to carry out an increasing number of death sentences, usually done by public beheading.

No special qualifications are needed for the jobs whose main role is “executing a judgment of death” but also involve performing amputations on those convicted of lesser offences, the advert, posted on the civil service jobs portal, said.”

Opinion: No special qualifications needed … almost funny – except when you read Revelation 20:4.

“And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”

I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior.—Isaiah 43:11

I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior.—Isaiah 43:11

One of our favorite writers is the late Oswald Chambers. For many years, Author and I read his daily devotional “My Utmost for His Highest.” It gave each new day a strong focus on Christ and the Christian life.

Recently, I found his small book “STUDIES IN THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT” in one of my laptop’s “Favorites” folder.

I opened the link and as I read his Introduction, I realized it was full of his sharp, insightful guidance into Jesus Christ.

Just the Introduction alone is an edifying read.

Click on the blue headline link above to read the INTRODUCTION, and you might be moved to read the rest of his book.

Christians Vow to Resist Onslaught of Same-sex Marriage Regardless of Cost

The New American: Anticipating a Supreme Court declaration that same-sex marriage is now a civil right, the signers of the “Pledge in Solidarity to Defend Marriage” state that they will “not respect an unjust law that directly conflicts with higher law,” knowing full well the consequences they might incur for taking such a stand. “We
