A cursory reading of scripture enlightens one to the fact of wars and rumors of wars. Joshua, Saul, King David...  There in nothing new under the sun.  I am a strong supporter of Israel and do not support either two-state or US/UN interference; but that being said I have read many, many facebook posts that speak of the damage inflicted upon Israel, but none explain what precipitated the attacks, painting what I believe is a distortion of facts.

Speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. Ephesians 4:15

Much prayer is needed for both Israel and Gaza. Perilous times are upon us. Evil, evil, evil rules and reigns in the hearts and minds of millions....

...and they overcame him (satan) by The Blood of The Lamb and The Word of their testimony. Revelation 12:11

Reports state.....

On Sunday night, an undercover IDF mission inside Gaza went awry. A high-ranking IDF officer was killed and one was wounded in the ensuing firefight. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cut short an official visit to Paris and flew back to Israel. Breaking Israel News

The latest escalation comes a day after a 41-year-old Israeli officer was killed and another was moderately wounded during an operation in the southern Gaza Strip. At least seven Palestinians were killed, including a commander in Hamas' military wing. Hamas claimed that six of the casualties were part of its organization. HaaretzNews

After a botched intelligence mission by undercover commandos left seven Palestinian fighters dead, the militant group Hamas and other armed factions mounted an intense and escalating rocket and mortar barrage across much of southern Israel that continued into Tuesday morning. New York Times

"Faith in The Blood of Jesus, and what God has said in His Word, when exercised in testimony against the evil one will always cause him to flee."

"I will also turn My hand against you, And will smelt away your dross as with lye And will remove all your alloy." Isaiah 1:25

"What if you went to work one day only to discover you no longer had a job....would you praise Me?

What if the doctor told you there was nothing more they could do....would you praise Me?

What if a loved one was suddenly taken from you...would you praise Me?

What will you do then My children, what will you do then?"

"And I will bring the third part through the fire, Refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested They will call on My name, And I will answer them; I will say, 'They are My people,' And they will say, 'The LORD is my God.'" Zechariah 13:9

Do your problems control your praises or do your praises control your problems?  Testing is coming. A refiners fire must come to burn away the dross, the wood, the hay, the stubble of your lives. Many within the body will experience great loss; even now it has begun.

"The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked, And the one who loves violence His soul hates." Psalm 11:5

"Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him." James 1:12

"Examine me, O LORD, and try me; Test my mind and my heart." Psalm 26:2

"Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts..." Psalm 139:23

"Let us examine and probe our ways, And let us return to the LORD." Lamentations 3:40

"My people will sit and soak, they will stand and proclaim...but they refuse to go where I send them and do what I have told them to do.

Great tribulation is coming upon this nation, lives will be shattered, hearts broken but where is My church?  Selfish and self centered she sits in her ivory towers and painted palaces but seldom do I hear..."here am I LORD, send me."  Times of great testing will come to all men, hearts will grow cold, hard. Not understanding what is happening, with unregenerate sinful lives, tens of thousands will turn away; blaming Me they will return to the darkness of the world."

"Now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance [not fully aware of what you were doing], just as your rulers did also. And so God has fulfilled what He foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that His Christ (Messiah, Anointed) would suffer. So repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins] and return [to God—seek His purpose for your life], so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day]; and that He may send [to you] Jesus, the Christ, who has been appointed for you, whom heaven must keep until the time for the [complete] restoration of all things about which God promised through the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time." Acts 3:17-21

"Days of great turmoil, rage, anguish loom large upon the horizion. My people, you are not prepared. Oh, how My heart grieves for My bride, My chosen...but you are not ready.  Oil your lamps, restore what has been broken, seek Me.

Above all else, desire intimacy with Me. Time is so short, so very short and you are unprepared."

"Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins, who took their lamps and went to [a]meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish [thoughtless, silly, and careless], and five were wise [far-sighted, practical, and sensible]. For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra] oil with them, but the wise took flasks of oil along with their lamps. Now while the bridegroom was delayed, they all began to nod off, and they fell asleep. But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Look! The bridegroom [is coming]! Go out to meet Him." Matthew 25:1-6

Several years ago I received the following three dreams over a period of about a month. God is speaking clearly to His people. He has been speaking to many for years; others only a few weeks. Some listen, others shrug their shoulders, ignore the admonition and forget. I have been one who heard His voice yet ignored My calling. To my shame I filed these dreams away, forgetting....until last night. Last night, I ask Abba Father why I did not receive dreams and visions. He reminded me of these three dreams and the fact I had not shared them with His people. In obedience I share them now.

I hung suspended in mid air. Below me lay the lifeless blue form of a once majestic lion. Stately and proud he now lay a distant reminder of what had once been so grand. (Blue is the third primary color. It spiritually signifies the Healing Power of God. It is the most sublime subject and color which represents, biblically, the Word of God. The 15th Chapter of Numbers, verses 38-41 denote this biblical meaning of Blue (fringe of the borders a ribband of blue. This I did not know until today). Realizing the lion was dead brought tears to my eyes. I watched as a man approached. With knife in hand, he bent down over the lion and began to cut away at the body. (Even after these many years this is very difficult to recall.  Perhaps my reason for hesitation).

"Then one of the [twenty-four] elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look closely, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome and conquered! He can open the scroll and [break] its seven seals.” Revelation 5:5

"And the Word (Christ) became flesh, and lived among us; and we [actually] saw His glory, glory as belongs to the [One and] only begotten Son of the Father, [the Son who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, who is] full of grace and truth (absolutely free of deception). John 1:14

Interpretation:  The lion...The Lion of the Tribe of Judah has indeed become flesh but men prefer their darkness to The Light He offers. Determining to silence The Word, to destroy The Lion men have begun to chip away at The Word to kill, steal and destroy His message of hope and healing.

Some time later a second dream...I stood outside a tent filled with men and women. I did not enter the tent but could hear their laughter. Within my spirit I knew that those inside the tent were engaged in revelry and sexual relations. Holy Spirit spoke. "This is My church. No longer a house of prayer it has become a house of prostitution."

"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God." 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

"You took some of your clothes, made for yourself high places of various colors and played the harlot on them, which should never come about nor happen. "You also took your beautiful jewels made of My gold and of My silver, which I had given you, and made for yourself male images that you might play the harlot with them. Ezekiel 16:16-17"

Again - Holy Spirit came in the middle of the night.

I was standing near a large cliff, surrounded by cars.  One by one I heard the engines start and could see the cars moving toward the edge of the cliff. I began shouting stop, STOP...but no one heard me. I waved my arms, running toward the cars, none took notice. I became almost hysterical as I frantically searched for the keys to turn off the engines and stop the cars. As quickly as it began, the dream ended.

Interpretation:  (from Holy Spirit)  "Yet they did not listen to Me and obey Me or bend their ear [to hear Me], but stiffened their neck; they did more evil and behaved worse than their fathers.You shall speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to you; and you shall [also] call to them, but they will not answer you. You shall say to them, ‘This is the nation that did not obey the voice of the Lord their God or accept correction and warning; truth and faithfulness have perished and have completely vanished from their mouths. Jeremiah 7:26-28"

America the great is falling....is falling.  Mens lives hang in the balance.  Crime in the streets, hate in the hearts.  Arise and seek My face.  I will be found by those who seek after Me.

'When the leading priests and teachers of religious law heard what Jesus had done, they began planning how to kill him. But they were afraid of Him because the people were so amazed at His teaching. Mark 11:-8'

Religious pastors, teacher, preachers know The Word. They know what JESUS has done yet continually preach heresy. False gospels, preached as Truth, enslave the unsuspecting, trapping My people in darkness. My Word of Truth has become a thorn in the flesh of millions.  Many are amazed by His teaching yet have chosen to remain behind the veil of deception.

Shaking, shaking, shaking is coming. Shaking is coming and you are not prepared. My remnant, repent. Repent of your idolatry, (love of, fondness for, delight in) repent of your lasciviousness, (lewd, pornographic, lustful, carnal, offensive...lifestyles) and seek after Me.

'...you are surrounded by traps and tremble from sudden fears...you cannot see in the darkness and waves of water cover you. God is so great—higher than the heavens, higher than the farthest stars. But you reply, ‘That’s why God can’t see what I am doing! How can He judge through the thick darkness? For thick clouds swirl about Him, and He cannot see us. He is way up there, walking on the vault of heaven.’ Job 22:10-14

Perilous times are coming upon My church. Shocked by all that is happening, many will fall away.  My children...become like the willow...it sways, moving with the direction of the wind. It sways but it does not break. When the Son of man returns, will He find you faithful or fallen?

"I have come that they may have life and life abundantly....yet My people continue to dwell among the shadows of darkness, surrounded by false prophets, heirling pastors and compromising congregants.  Where is My annointing that breaks the yoke...where is My Spirit to guide you into all truth?  My gifts without measure have been traded for tickling ears and experiences that gladden the heart yet leaves your spirit dry, desperately needful of the things of God.

Revival is coming...yokes will be broken, spirits lifted. My people will rise to accomplish much in these last days for My glory. But millions will continue to live in lack, unaware, unconcerned and uninterested in the things of God.

"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10

" I gave faithless Israel her certificate of divorce and sent her away because of all her adulteries. Yet I saw that her unfaithful sister Judah had no fear; she also went out and committed adultery. Because Israel’s immorality mattered so little to her, she defiled the land and committed adultery with stone and wood. In spite of all this, her unfaithful sister Judah did not return to me with all her heart, but only in pretense,” declares the Lord." Jeremiah 3:8-10

You have learned nothing from the past. You continue to cleave to the ungodly, shunning righteousness.  As Israel was so to is the nation that forgets her God."

"When evil comes and darkness surrounds, lean on Me.  Know that I AM is greater than all the evil, all the darkness. I will never leave you, I will never forsake you.

Change is coming, look around, it has begun. The witness of My church has been tarnished by the world. Compromise and false doctrines have so penetrated the body that truth is seldom spoken and few have taken a stand for righteousness.  My Light must pierce through the darkness for there still remains millions who live surrounded by that darkness.  Judgments are coming upon those nations that have rejected My Truth. America will not be exempt from My judgment for America has been given much and to whom much is given much is required,

My children look around. See the signs of the times. Listen to the voices that speak Truth in My Name. Stop the gossip, fault finding, shallowness and enter into a time of repentance, renew your fellowship with Me and walk as children of The Light."

'Hear,  O earth! I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their own schemes, for they have paid no attention to My word and have rejected My instruction. What use to Me is frankincense from Sheba or sweet cane from a distant land? Your burnt offerings are not acceptable; your sacrifices do not please Me.” Therefore, this is what the LORD says: “I will lay stumbling blocks before this people; fathers and sons alike will be staggered; friends and neighbors will perish.”…Jeremiah 6:19-21

'What shall we conclude then? Do we have any advantage? Not at all! For we have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under the power of sin. As it is written:  “There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God.' Romans 3:9-11

'For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.' Romans 3:23-26
