First American causalities of this war will be felt at the gas pump and with the purchase of home heating oil. Followed by a further weakened dollar on the world market. Meaning every thing Americans buy will cost more. But with Americans feeling the death of the capitalist economic collapse. Manufactures can not raise their prices to meet increased production cost. Resulting in a nation rushing into the perils of economic deflation, where it cost more to produce products than they can be sold for. The final economic equation will show a greater loss of jobs for the American work force. Resulting in less tax money, so states will be forced to eliminated millions from their budgets. Threatening the ruination of America’s infrastructure from A-Z, meaning nothing that the nations people rely upon is safe from extinction.
Israel is determined to eliminate its Islamic foe, Hamas, who along with Iran, both whom declare that Israel has no right to exist. The church of Jesus Christ does not have the financial resources to compete with the secular communities vast media propaganda machine. Which sees global events through mundane lenses, completely missing the scenery of spirituality. Therefore leaving the task to his servants and saints, people like you and me, both servants and saints of Jesus Christ.
In many ways the world is complex, but in other ways it is simple. Simply put it is a struggle between good and evil, light verses darkness. For this posting the good and the light is our Judeo-Christian heritage. Verses evil and darkness capsuled in Islam. The sooner this is understood the greater the chance for global stability. In that that is not likely to occur, what does all this mean for the world community? Fear for one thing, and the world community has every reason to fear the possible consequences of this war and its aftermath. Certain to help spiral the globe to cosmic catastrophic judgment. Helped along with Israeli Defense Minister, Ehud Barak, declaring “all out war against Hamas,” with Israeli tanks and armored personal carriers taking up positions outside the perimeter of the Gaza Strip. Suggesting the possibility of a Israeli ground troop assault.
Israel is not only taking upon itself Hamas, but for certain Iran. With the possibility of drawing into the conflict the entire Arab/Muslim Middle East. But for now the influence of Iran, with the havoc they alone can create. Iran is the force supplying Hamas with warfare training and the supply of weapons. The world can not dismiss the possibility that Iran will commit its own troops to the conflict. And there is the constant fear that Iran already has nuclear weapons, giving them reason not to fear Israeli retaliation. And if such possibilities never materialize, there still is much Iran can do to make life miserable for the world community. It must be remembered that Iran is the owner of the worlds second largest oil fields. Also controlling the narrow sea channel through which oil from the Persian Gulf is shipped. Giving them the ability to cripple the worlds thirst for oil.
Making the cost of gasoline immaterial, if gasoline becomes unavailable. Helping to bring a screeching crumbling halt to commerce of every sort. Ushering in a charismatic political religious figures who will promise to make things better. Better but with conditions, he must be worshiped, Revelation 13:11-15, and significantly important, receiving the mark of of the beast for the purpose of everyday commerce, verses 16-17. Perhaps the scary scene of these events is found in verse seven, “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (Christians), and to overcome them; and power was given to him over all kindred, and tongues, and nations.”
All this is necessary because of a time when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel,” (in this context gospel-good news, Genesis-Revelation), Romans 2:16. Brought upon the world for its failure to allow Israel the fruits of God’s promises, Genesis 12:3, “I will bless them that bless you, and curse them that curse you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.” But Israel is not blameless because she has rejected the ever lasting gospel preached unto them that dwell on the earth, to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Revelation 14:6.
Our duty now is capsuled in Revelation 14:7, with this same angel, “Saying with a loud voice, fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come; and worship him that made heaven and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”
