Israel Versus Hezbollah: Delusional Obsessions

Delusional Obsessions

Serious war is on the horizon in Israel because she's been an appeaser. She pulled out of Gaza but had to go back in to wage war. She pulled out of Lebanon and has now had to go in and again wage war. I agree with Michael Medved's comments that, "We need a victory process and not a peace process."

The Israeli IDF has not just invaded Lebanon as Lebanon is a surrogate of Syria and Iran. Damascus is at risk always (Isaiah 17). The current tension could die out as the ultra dove Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is spineless and ineffective in such crucial times; however, he will likely continue to receive pressure from the Israeli people for the soldiers captured or killed. Nonetheless, I will take as a positive and hopeful statement from Olmert when he said, "There are people who are trying to test our resolve. They will fail and they will pay a heavy price for their actions." May his actions, then, speak louder than words.

Hezbollah in Syria is a ruthless outfit that means "party of god." They had ties to the planned NY subway bomb plot a few weeks ago that was prevented. Along with Hamas, they operate in America for our demise as well as Israel's.

What lapse of logic can explain the stubborn, utterly unshakable and nearly universal insistence that Israel must pursue a "peace process" with its terrorist adversaries? Recent events in the Middle East demonstrate that the continued Western emphasis on "road maps" and "peace processes" represents a delusional obsession, not a policy preference. This is a lesson the world needs to learn, not just Israel. An agreement with such people (indisputably characterized as impotent, dishonest, or both) remains a meaningless gesture.

And yet because today we live in an upside down world, the world seems to be caught by surprise at the events in Israel in the last many weeks with a war status in Gaza and now Lebanon. What seems so obvious to some seems to not even be on the radar screen for many of the world's leaders which is why one has to wonder if the scenario being played out is simply one foretold by the ancient Hebrew prophets. It is part of the scenario that must play out, "and then the end shall come."

Yet we know that He who keeps Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps (Psalms 121); and nor should we cease in our prayers for wisdom for presidents, prime ministers, kings, and more who have to deal with the ugly realities of the 21st Century and the Islamofascists seeking to retake the world and bring it back to the 7th Century.

Awaiting His return,

U r basing your bias towards Israel on the Bible?

It is a religious war.

But I have also posted reports sent from the Muslims as well.

Even if Hezbollah sends me their manifesto, I will publish it.

Everybody deserves a breathing space and everybody deserves a fair hearing.

I believe in the freedom of speech.

I am not one of those who silence the voice of the conscience.

God bless.

“Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.” Luke 6:28

“And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.” Acts 7:59-60

“And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. And said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted His raiment, and cast lots” Luke 23:33-34

The will of our Father is to pray for those who despitefully use us. It is a weapon of our Holy warfare that is undefeatable in the pulling down of strongholds. Jesus used this glorious weapon of love when being crucified and Stephen used it when being stoned, and the result was victory for both, as well as victory for millions of us because it was deployed. Forgiveness and love are stronger than rockets, missiles, nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons. And it works 100% of the time! We are empowered with and one with Jesus Christ, so if our enemy strikes our right cheek, through the power of our Father, Who will never leave us or forsake us, we turn the left one to them, and we trust in the One Who knows the beginning and the end to protect us. The weapons of warfare are not carnal, but spiritual, and they are mighty to the bringing down of strongholds, 2 Corinthians 10:4.

So please join with me in praying for all Muslim Terrorists.
Father We ask You in Jesus’ Name that You empower us to truly give thanks for them, empowering us with Your love to always making mention of them in our prayers. We join together in the power of Christ and ask that they may come to know You as the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Father of glory. We pray that You give unto them the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Who You are. We pray that the eyes of their understanding are enlightened; so that they may know what is the hope of Your calling, and what is the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in the saints. We ask in Jesus’ Name that they come to know the exceeding greatness of Your power towards us who believe, according to the working of Your mighty power through them. Power just as You wrought in Jesus, when You raised Him from the dead, and set Him at Your own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come! Father we ask that they have peace that passes all understanding and that they have the very joy of Jesus fulfilled in them! We pray that they receive the Spirit of Truth, Your Holy Spirit Father, and that He comforts and strengthens them, and that He plainly shows them things to come. We ask that they are whole: spirit, soul, and body and that they are empowered to accept the Truth that Jesus has born their sicknesses and sins and diseases on the Cross and that His stripes have healed them! We ask You Father that they become part of the glorious Church that has been sanctified by the washing of water and Your Word and that they have no spot, wrinkle, or blemish! We ask that they become perfected in Your love and that Your love casts out all fear and hatred from within them, so that they may stand boldly on the Day of Judgment!
Father I ask that You empower all of us with the fullness of Yourself to be doers of Your Word and not just hearers this day. A-men!

We Are Blessed In The Power Of our Fathers Might!
