Still Small Voice. War grows. Day 154

The picture above:On Oct 7th, out of the deadly attack by Hamas, just nearby, 47 babies were born in the underground maternity unit at Soroka hospital, all the while under an intense missile fire by Hamas.  Observant women and Bedouin live in close proximity in Israel’s Negev.”

To My Dear Friends:

Today marks 5 months since the beginning of the war. Yesterday President Biden called for a ‘ceasefire”. Hamas sees the pressure mounting against Israel from all quarters, and they just sit back and wait. They don’t need to negotiate. The whole world is with them against Israel. It is an impossible situation. We call for your prayers more than ever before. Please stay alert and learn the facts and the truth about what is going on between Israel, Hamas and the USA. Much of world media on the war is ‘clouded.’ Join me, determined to uncover the facts on the ground concerning this conflict. First, let us remember what the LORD God spoke through His Prophets. He is continually moving behind the scenes in history shaping prophecy for Israel and His Body. Father God has predetermined: “The people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits.” Daniel 11:32

Since October 7th Israel has lost 597 soldiers in action. Ramadan begins on Monday, March 10th until April 8th, a very sensitive month because of threats by Fundamental Islam. In Gaza, Israel is preparing more areas to evacuate Khan Unis and has dropped leaflets over the civilian populations. In Israel, Israel has assured the Palestinian population of the security and safety of all Muslim holy sites in Israel during this month. Because of threatened attacks, Israel is warning its public to be aware at all times. Hamas threatens that,” war will explode on Israel’s borders and within the country.” I am sure you are praying for the hostages and the Palestinians, all are helpless.

Here is a 2-minute history lesson: Origins of the Palestinians.

Meet Lucy:

She is Israel’s only Muslim-Israeli journalist. Her voice is as powerful as it is clear and true to both of her people. Give her your time, she is a woman to be reckoned with and helps us to understand how utterly complicated the situation here has always been. 

Now What about Hamas?

The scriptures I have chosen below were spoken by Obadiah over Edom in Bible times when they rejoiced at Israel’s great misfortune and brokenness. Not only that, they profited from her losses then, just as Hamas is doing today worldwide. Now we know that the UN support Hamas. The world has gone mad.  Today this scripture shouts out the Hamas agenda perfectly. Hamas continues to refuse to give the names of the LIVING hostages to Israel but demands a cease-fire. How ridiculous it all is.  Obadiah lived from 607 to 586 BC when Jerusalem was attacked by Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylon, which led to the Babylonian exile. This prophecy can also apply to any of Israel’s enemies. Take note!

“Do not rejoice over the sons of Judah in the day of their destruction.”Obadiah12b

“Do not speak arrogantly in the day of their distress.” 12c

“Yes, you, do not look with delight on the day of their ruin and do not loot treasures in the day of their ruin.” 13:b

“As you have done it shall be done to you in retribution; your evil dealing will return on your own head.” 15b.

“Because just as you drank on my holy mountain … so shall all the nations drink continually  [one by one of My wrath.] So shall all the nations drink and swallow [the full measure of punishment.]”16.b Amplified

Israel Faces War Escalating on 7 Fronts. 

First,  let’s look inside Israel; on her seams, – those Arab Palestinian population areas that border internal Israel. For example, East Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria. There are some radical Islamic villages and towns in the north as well. They also attack local Arab Christians. Then there is continual conflict on Israel’s borders; Gaza, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. Jordan is bordered on the north by Syria, to the east by Iraq, with Saudi Arabia on the east and south and to the west by Israel. ISIS is reportedly alive and well according to sources in Kurdistan. (TBN)  Apparently, ISIS survived in the Iraqi desert that borders Jordan. They are entrenched once again in Syria and active in Lebanon. We sense war on the horizon everywhere. Not a happy report and certainly not what anyone wants to hear or read. (The LORD has never given me popular tasks throughout my life, having given over 30 years to a work for sexually abused children and adults.)

“You (Israel) are My battle-axe and sword, with you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms. With you I will shatter armies …” Jeremiah 51:20-24

Hamas is calling for Ramadan this year to be a bloodbath everywhere worldwide. 

 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher…” Isaiah 55:8,9.

In the secret, 
in the quiet place,
 In the stillness, you are there
In the secret, in the quiet hour 
I wait only for you.
 ‘I need to know You more.’
I want to know you. 
I want to hear your voice.
I want to touch you.
I want to see your face.
I am reaching for the highest goal,
That I might receive the prize
Pressing onward, pushing every hindrance out of my way,
‘Cause I want to know you more
In the secret, 
in the quiet place,
In the stillness, you are there.

In closing,  I encourage you to take time to go aside and meet With the Friend who will never leave us or forsake ALL mankind. Individually, I have the choice to follow or forsake Him! That profound choice is mine alone. Quieten down on the inside …  Commune.
