“Ooooh yeah…” Some of you might catch the reference at it relates to that title. The only thing missing is the word “the” before “Madness.” 🙂
Sorry. A little lame attempt at levity before we jump into this:
Report: Dozens of Russian generals in Syria killed after a car bomb hits their military base
Keeping tallying it up. How are the Russians going to respond to this?
I almost have to chuckle except it’s deadly serious.
With that in mind,
Watch this sequence:
A delegation from Saudi Arabia’s air force arrived Thursday morning at Incirlik air base in southern Turkey to complete operational and logistical preparations for the deployment of four Saudi F-15s at the base on February 29
Wow. They’re really gearing up for this insanity and stupidity. Keep praying, folks. This could be a leap year for the ages.
This is foolish.
As I reported in my previous blog entry: https://banditzlayer.wordpress.com/2016/02/22/2-22-16/
NATO has already wisely signaled that Turkey will be left hung out to dry so I just can’t believe they really think they’re going to stand well against Iran-Russia-Syria.
OP-ED: Hamas fracturing… Israel should be worried.
It goes without saying doesn’t it?
This is OP-ED is well researched and written. Please take the time to read it.
We are never far from the influence of Iran in so many things. They are the masters of the art of the proxy war and are more pragmatic than a lot of people often think. Just recently I finished reading “The Devil We Know: Dealing with the New Iranian Superpower” written by ex CIA operative Robert Baer. I am impressed with Baer and I am on a streak right now of reading all of his main non-fiction books. This book was written in August of 2009 and is still surprisingly timely in terms of its explanation and geopolitical breakdown. I understand always having a certain caution reading anything and especially from someone that was involved in this line of work but reading books like these with the Bible prophetic cap on is quite the illuminating eye opener. Some of Baer’s analysis and projections from 2009 are bearing fruit right now.
U.S.: Russia uses ceasefire process to seize key Syria territory
No! Say it ain’t so!
First ISIS Attack in Israel?
It seems likely.
ISIS has made no bones that they have every intention of making their way in to Israel same as anywhere else. What has struck me in recent months was ISIS personnel expressing open respect for the IDF but making assured claims that they had plans and the right time and place to make inroads.
ISIS is a wildcard termite like element that is virtually everywhere and not to be underestimated. JV league they are not. It’s difficult to quantify their full effect in the mix in addition to the usual suspects.
If a literal Psalm 83 war scenario is to take place my gut suspicion is that it will be in large thanks to the ISIS component.
Netanyahu: Nuclear deal enabled Iran to pay terrorists’ families
Israeli PM says new package offering tens of thousands of dollars to terrorists’ families made possible by western sanctions relief.
This shouldn’t surprise anyone.
In the ME if you had honest and objective brokers tracing the money the bulk of the problems lead back to Iran and Saudi Arabia running proxies. Those are you two biggest 800 lb. gorillas in the room far and away despite their rivaling Islamic beliefs.
The nuclear deal has been nothing but an epic win for Iran across the board. Follow the money and what they are doing with it and the lifting of sanctions. This Russian S-3000 deal has been hanging in the air for several years because of those sanctions…no more.
How The Iran-Russia-Syria Alliance Is The Middle East’s Number One Problem
Even more secular and “mainstream” news outlets are finally starting to wake up to this. That is your lead Ezekiel 38 alliance. Everyone better get used to this concept and narrative from here on out.
Kerry urges no new Iran sanctions as Khamenei backs anti-US candidates
All of the above is thanks to a nice big assist from… the USA! Way to go! Incompetence simply cannot explain away this self sabotaging and self defeating to an art form that the West’s leaders and American leaders continue to demonstrate.
This is more of a farce than even our “elections” or certainly comparable. Khamenei and the Revolutionary Guard are in charge no matter what. Never forget that.
DAYS OF NOAH/LOT:
Scientists claim they can create babies without men by injecting eggs with artificial sperm
…And we want to do this why?…
What’s still classified? Right.
Derek Gilbert at Skywatch TV did a fantastic job breaking this down but I want to take a shot at it myself.
Virtual reality is coming thanks to Mark Zuckerberg and the Oculus Rift purchase.
I am a tech hound. It’s cool tech and it will have it uses and also have its entertainment value. I’m not knocking it.
I am not accusing Mark of anything or sinister intentions before we get into this, ok? 🙂
I can’t help but escape several level of irony and memes here ,though. If you see the footage or pictures from the gathering where Mark had a bunch of tech hounds test fire these it says a lot.
Mark…The Elite…knows better and he is walking around freely in this huge auditorium watching everyone strap in and tune out for the sake of “being social.”
A bunch of people gathered in a room together and they are checked out. That’s being social? Really?
We see that today already with everyone in their smartphones.
I have sat in restaurants and have watched families…or what’s left of them…sitting at the same table and they are all on their gadgets and not even talking to each other. You can see the pictures otherwise Derek shows it all to you in that video.
I could get into a chicken and egg cause and effect argument all day long but the results are a broken down, isolated society.
Who wants to live in a future like this? Aren’t we isolated enough already?!
It saps faith and hope like a sponge. Everyone has their limits and I know that this is bad but it’s nothing compared to what my fellow Christians in China and the Middle East are going through right now. Don’t worry, I get it. 🙂
I will say persecution and fallout comes in a lot of different forms however.
There is a very good reason that in olden days when it came down to it you were given a choice: Exile vs death as the same level of punishment. One is slow and drawn out, the other is fast and clean. I understand. I also understand why many if not most people given that choice choose the latter.
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Occupy until He comes but I’m all about this unashamedly.
Hurry Lord Jesus!
What is “ministry/being in ministry”? What is/are the criteria, qualifications, specifications, etc.? The more Scripture you all can provide me on this, the better.
The reason I am asking is because I want to check myself on something. For my own personal comfort level I find that the wording/phrasing of “being in ministry” is used far too loosely so I would like to field this and see what’s what. Fire away. 🙂
