One That Calls for a Response

By Dr. James M. Hutchens

Cal Thomas said: “In a rebuke to the President [Obama’s] commitment to diplomacy, Iran conducted a missile test within hours after Mr. Netanyahu left Washington for Israel. If Iran gets a nuclear bomb, everything will change in the Middle East. Whatever dim prospects for peace there may be will come unraveled. That's why stopping Iran's nuclear ambitions trumps a Palestinian state and everything else.”

God says: “I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. … I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. Persia, [Iran] Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets. … In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel.” (Ezekiel 38:2-5, 8).

The Jerusalem Connection says: A war of holocaust proportions is fact of future history. There may be a few political speed bumps that slow it down. But the Bible tells us with alarming specificity that it is indeed inevitable. A remnant of Israel will be saved only when they cry out “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD.” [Yahwey]. “What kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. … make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with Him.” ( Matthew 23:39; II Peter 3:11-12, 14).
