THE FINAL PIECE OF THE PUZZLE?

Hello again folks! So, we have a pseudo-ceasefire in place between Israel and Hamas. Perfect timing for the inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama; the 44th US President and their first muslim president too. Knowing that in islam; one can follow mohammed's stratagem of signing false peace treaties whilst using the time bought to build up ones force to complete the conquest; this comes as no surprise.
We also have all of the worlds leading politicians; ambassadors; envoys - you name it - they're queuing up to help negotiate not only peace in Gaza and southern Israel but also to defy the warning in Joel 3:2 and 'help' Israel press its own destruction button to create a 'palestinian' state that in one place leaves Israel just eight [8] miles wide and unable to defend itself - in the event of any 'surprise' attack. Sarkozy; Blair; Brown; Obama Solana even the pope are all serious 'candidates' for the antichrist according to some.
And the pieces are indeed coming together for those of us who are watching current events; and those of us who don't necessarily believe in the pre-tribulation rapture theory could see soon the signing of the 'covenant of death' [sheol] - confirmed by the son of perdition - signalling the beginning of the seven year final 70th week of Daniel.
We have the islamic sunni and shi'ite streams consolidating themselves and behind them the Russians [Magog?] and Chinese [kings of the east?]. We also have the [man-made] global warming environmental bandwagon; the [man-made] 'credit crunch'; the [man-made] food/water crunch let alone all the spiritual elements ... ecumenism; the social/pseudo gospel; deception in the church and without; the rise of the 'new age' - to name but a few.
But there is one other piece of the jigsaw not to be negated. Energy. Whether you are into the 'peak oil' theorem or others; I believe in the current economic climate; the issue of low oil prices; exploration; capacity; the Russia/Ukraine dispute with regard to the EU gas pipeline et al; that this is one element that needs to be considered in the end time scenario.
Especially when one reads of a major new natural gas field discovery has been made off the coast of Haifa in Israel:
And also when confidence in finding a major oil field in Israel is rising:
Can you imagine how the economic and political world would be changed overnight if such large natural deposits were found in the sovereign land of Israel? The reliance on the Russian gas fields by the EU would be weakened. The reliance of the US and the ROTW on the arab-muslim oil fields would also be depleted. And how a prosperous and rich Israel would become that bit more attractive to the Russian bear; the Chinese dragon and the muslim sword. All I am suggesting is that this may be one of the final pieces in the last days; the thin end of the wedge; the straw that breaks the camels back - so to speak.
So be watchmen and watchwomen. Keep your eyes on Blair; Brown; Solana; Obama et al. But don't take your eyes off the periphery while your eyes are focussed on the 'main players'. Watch the news underneath the headlines. And do not be deceived. Finally ... most of all ... stay close to Him and keep your eyes upon the Lord.
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make your paths straight." [Proverbs 3:5-6]
God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 18-Jan-2009

PRETRIB RAPTURE - HIDDEN FACTS !

How can the “rapture” be “imminent”? Acts 3:21 says that Jesus “must” stay in heaven (He is now there with the Father) “until the times of restitution of all things” which includes, says Scofield, “the restoration of the theocracy under David’s Son” which obviously can’t begin before or during Antichrist’s reign. Since Jesus must personally participate in the rapture, and since He can’t even leave heaven before the tribulation ends, the rapture therefore cannot take place before the end of the trib! Paul explains the “times and the seasons” (I Thess. 5:1) of the catching up (I Thess. 4:17) as the “day of the Lord” (5:2) (which FOLLOWS the posttrib sun/moon darkening - Matt. 24:29; Acts 2:20) WHEN “sudden destruction” (5:3) of the wicked occurs! (If the wicked are destroyed before or during the trib, who would be left alive to serve the Antichrist?) Paul also ties the change-into-immortality “rapture” (I Cor. 15:52) to the posttrib end of “death” (15:54)! (Will death be ended before or during the trib?) If anyone wonders how long pretrib rapturism has been taught, he or she can Google “Pretrib Rapture Diehards.” Many are unaware that before 1830 all Christians had always viewed I Thess. 4’s “catching up” as an integral part of the final second coming to earth. In 1830 it was stretched forward and turned into a separate coming of Christ. To further strengthen their novel view, which the mass of evangelical scholars rejected throughout the 1800s, pretrib teachers in the early 1900s began to stretch forward the “day of the Lord” (what Darby and Scofield never dared to do) and hook it up with their already-stretched-forward “rapture.” Many leading evangelical scholars still weren’t convinced of pretrib, so pretrib teachers then began teaching that the “falling away” of II Thess. 2:3 is really a pretrib rapture (the same as saying that the “rapture” in 2:3 must happen before the “rapture” ["gathering"] in 2:1 can happen - the height of desperation!). Other Google articles throwing light on long-covered-up facts about the 178-year-old pretrib rapture view include “Famous Rapture Watchers,” “X-Raying Margaret,” “Revisers of Pretrib Rapture History,” “Thomas Ice (Bloopers),” “Wily Jeffrey,” “The Rapture Index (Mad Theology),” “America’s Pretrib Rapture Traffickers,” “Roots of (Warlike) Christian Zionism,” “Scholars Weigh My Research,” “Pretrib Hypocrisy,” “Pretrib Rapture Desperados” and “Deceiving and Being Deceived” - all by the author of the bestselling book “The Rapture Plot” which is available at Armageddon Books online. Just my two cents’ worth.
