As 2015 continues to roar in like a lion, there are rumblings that:

‘Iran and Hezbollah are planning a series of major attacks against civilians along Israel's northern border. Israel appears to have taken pre-emptive action, killing an Iranian general and several of his top operatives in an air strike. Iran and Hezbollah are vowing revenge. As if this were not troubling enough, Russia and Iran have just signed a dramatic military agreement.’ [JP and Times of Israel]

As ISIS continues to conquer, demand, maim and destroy more and more, where is America and their imposed sanctions in all this?

“Russian news agencies, report Moscow wants to develop a "long-term and multifaceted" military relationship with Iran. The new agreement includes expanded counter-terrorism cooperation, exchanges of military personnel for training purposes and an understanding for each country's navy to more frequently use the other's ports. Iran's Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan urged greater cooperation as a means of opposing American ambitions in the region. Moscow and Tehran have staunchly supported Syrian President Bashar Assad throughout Syria's civil war, while Washington advocates regime change and supports rebel groups.” [AP]

As America tumbles further away from God, as the church in America slides further away from its Biblical foundations I pray His remnant, the called of the LORD are ready and prepared. Please, do not stand gazing into the heavens awaiting an imminent rapture, engage.!!!.. The LORD is coming back, but until then we must fight the good fight of faith. We must, as the redeemed of the LORD, identify the enemy and stand strong, standing clothed in our Ephesians Six armor, dressed and ready for battle. Time is short, the work will be hard, but God is with us.

“…be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
 
War, terrorism, unconstitutional laws, continued spread of Islam across the globe, legalization of same-sex marriage, riots in the streets…

2015 is shaping up to be a difficult year for us all in many ways. ENGAGE.!!!.
