“3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, 4 Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? 5 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: 6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. 8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. 9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. 10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations. 11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost. 12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. 13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: 15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: 16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. 17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. 19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. 20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. 21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: 22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. 24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. 28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: 29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors. 30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. 31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.”
There are definitely “Rumors of War” swirling about and it’s not just between Syria and Turkey but also in other places. The impending War(s) are weighing on my heart this evening. I’ve recently posted and tweeted some thoughts on Syria and Turkey. I want to be clear that I am in NO way “predicting” or “prophesying” any WAR. I only know from the Word of God that War is inevitable. I am by no means privy to knowing when exactly a WAR will happen or between whom. When I report on topics often it’s after I’ve spent some time researching a particular issue and my interpretation. I do not follow any other “blogs” or even Alternative News sources such as “InfoWars” or “the Blaze.” I’ve already said my piece on Jones and Beck. I know what’s going on and I look at various news sources and try to take a step back and use my own reasoning to determine how I interpret the information. It’s a novel idea I know to think for oneself, but it often results in realizing that I’m not the only one with that particular line of thinking, which is often scary for me, because I’d rather think that I’m over exaggerating and am way off base than find out I’m on to something! I much rather error on the side of being called crazy then be right about some of the stuff I think on. I don’t want to be right about a Turkey/Syria war, or that the US is actually behind the whole thing! I don’t think it’s far fetched, and we’ve seen a pattern established already; one only needs to look to Egypt (Mubarak) and Libya (Gaddaffi) to see that the US is in the job of outing leaders of sovereign Countries. One could even argue that Saddam Hussein was also one of the casualties of this type of foreign policy. Granted all the said leaders of these particular nations were not saints, but if we are in the business of “removing” kings and setting up kings, I don’t think God Almighty would take to kindly to that, since He’s been in the business of doing so (Daniel 2:20-21). Let’s cast all the facts into a pot, let’s stir the pot, and see if we are ready for War in 2012.
Social Media Stew: How Does a WAR taste in 2012?
A movie (fake movie) released on YouTube in Egypt and Libya created much hostility in many countries. Spain and Greece are rioting over Austerity Measures. There is a growing resistance inside of Iran. The politics in the US is hugely divided. We have border violence near Mexico. We have crazy youth blowing people away in Movie Theaters. There is a group that is global called “Anonymous” that seems to be at every protest, in every country, over every issue. The Church in America has militarized the Apostate Church to think in terms of taking up arms against Muslims rather than preach the Gospel to them. If Turkey went to War with Syria, the US being a NATO ally would be drawn in (although I think it’s been US policy all along to instigate such a war and wants to go to war with *Assad’s Syria et. al). If the US takes a stand alongside Turkey and hits Syria with a full fledged assault, what do you think the fallout would be in the other countries as a result (remember how ballistic they got over a FAKE movie)? Now imagine those same people who have relatives here in the US. Imagine all the people who are directly affected in the US by an attack on Syria, potentially Libya and Egypt as well. Let’s imagine for one second what our US streets would like if people got half as ballistic as they did in Yemen, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Australia, Germany, etc. all the countries where people were defending their faith when it was ridiculed and “attacked” by “Americans.”
(put that thought right here____)
Now magnify that. Imagine WAR on the streets of the United States. Imagine Glenn Beck’s War Room show on crack coming off of heroine addiction and in full blown alcoholism with a side of gluttony. I’m saying–you CAN’T imagine what war would look like on the streets of the United States in 2012. You can’t picture not going to Walmart for your kids cough syrup or toilet paper. You can’t imagine Bank Runs. You can’t imagine locking your streets down with your neighbors on rooftops ‘Armed to the Teeth’ ready for looters or bombs being dropped overhead. You CAN’T imagine Dallas or LA, Phoenix or Little Rock looking like Baghdad and Kandahar. So, if you don’t want your children learning how lock and load the rifle and how to aim it at another human being, why are we shouting for WAR now? Oh we’re shouting, our silence is deafening. When we ignore what the US government is doing to stage a War, we are by our own self-denial, allowing it to happen and as the scripture says there will be wars, it’s the beginning of things.
*Obama set in motion (more recently) the atmosphere in Syria (Libya, Egypt, and all of Arab Spring). Romney’s Foreign policy is exactly the same. Arming the “rebels” is code for giving money and weapons to the Al Qaeda and other jihadis in Syria who will overthrow Assad; and they want nothing to do with American or Western style “Democracy.” The same jihadis want Islamic Law in their respective countries. Egypt and Libya are currently in the throws of this situation, so is Iraq. This is why there is still violence and attacks against our own troops there (Iraq, Libya, and Egypt) because the people of the respective countries want to govern in their own way their own people, but an “Occupier” (the US) is preventing that from happening. At some point that plug will be pulled and the powder keg is lit, so it’s gonna blow, and our troops won’t have time to get far enough away without fallout hitting them. This is how I perceive it anyway, I could be dead wrong (I hope I am). What do I know, I’m just a stay at home mom who blogs and has had too much coffee.
