Breaking Israel News: “Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.” (Jeremiah 17:5)

“Following the temporary embargo placed by the Obama administration on weapons shipments to Israel during Operation Protective Edge, Israel is taking steps to not have to rely in the future upon the kindness of strangers.

Officials from Israel’s Defense Ministry who wished to remain anonymous told NRG that Israel will focus more on bolstering its own internal manufacturing of weapons.”

Opinion: In Israel’s ancient wars and the wars of Independence, the nation was outnumbered many times over:

A few examples:

  • Exodus 14:13-14 Pharaoh at the Red Sea
  • Exodus 17:8-15  War at Rephidim
  • 2 Chronicles 20 War with Edom, Ammon and Moab
  • Judges 7 Gideon at Midian
  • Esther 8-9 Persian war
  • 1948 War of Independence
  • 1956 Sinai War
  • 1967 Six-Day War
  • 1968 War of Attrition
  • 1973 Yom Kippur War
  • 2006 Lebanon War

God always provides a protector for times such as these.

In recent wars, the 2012 Thanksgiving Hamas rocket attacks and the recent 50 day war with Hamas, Israel relied on the US-provided Iron Dome and IDF fire power.

In the future wars of Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38, and Armageddon, the Lord Himself will be Israel’s protector.

Breaking Israel News: “Hamas’s armed wing is reconstructing terror tunnels damaged by Israel during Operation Protective Edge. The terror group’s newspaper reported on Sunday that Hamas is carrying out the work under the protection of the humanitarian ceasefire currently in place.

A reporter from Al-Resalah interviewed a team of Al-Qassam tunnel diggers working along the border between Gaza and Israel. While not allowed to enter the tunnel for fear that it would collapse, the writer described the diggers like “bees in a hive.”

The diggers explained that they were motivated to rebuild the attack tunnels because “every inch they dig helps spill the blood of an Israeli soldier or kidnap one.”

Opinion: I don’t know how I missed the prophetic parallels on the tunnels before. In our book Antichrist: The search for Amalek (page 63) we posted two prophecies that speak to the deceptive cunning of Esau:

Jeremiah 49:10 NIV: “But I will strip Esau bare; I will uncover his hiding places, so that he cannot conceal himself …”

Obadiah 1:6 NIV “But how Esau will be ransacked, his hidden treasures pillaged!

For 50 days the IDF searched for and destroyed hundreds of tunnels that are now being rebuilt, as the world watches.

johnkThe Washington Post: “As nations and organizations pledged more than $5 billion to rebuild the war-ravaged Gaza Strip, several major donors said Sunday that this is the last time they will pay and urged Israel and the Palestinians to negotiate a final peace settlement leading to two separate states.

Appearing in Cairo at a conference of more than 50 donor nations, Secretary of State John F. Kerry announced that the United States would contribute an additional $212 million to Palestinians, including Gazans. “The people of Gaza do need our help, desperately — not tomorrow, not next week, but they need it now,” he said.

Opinion: John Kerry brought America’s checkbook to Cairo and, in a grand gesture, gave Hamas with no strings attached $212 million US taxpayer dollars, to rebuild a country that Hamas itself destroyed.

I say Hamas destroyed because there would not have been even one missile dropped on Gaza if not for Hamas’ aggression.

Arab leaders must be elated. They are free to attack Israel, get a few thousand of their own civilians killed, and then blame it on Israel’s occupation of the land that Israel gave them, in exchange for peace, nine years ago.

Outrage.
