Not since the days of World War 2 has evil been spiraling out of control with such intensity, and it’s difficult to keep up with the deterioration of many nations and perplexing situations, just as the Bible predicted for the Last Days.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has just crucified eight Muslim men for not being “extreme” enough, and their bodies were kept on display in a town square in Iraq for three days. A ninth crucified man reportedly survived.
Equally sick and horrific are mass beheadings and the football games ISIS plays with human heads and other repulsive images in endless propaganda videos.
Meanwhile in Israel, the media are focusing on the tragedy of a Palestinian Arab boy, Muhammad Abu Khdeir, who was burned alive. Breaking news is that six Jewish suspects have been arrested and it appears they are a group of radical youths who decided to take the law into their own hands.
The situation is escalating because a cousin of murdered Muhammad alleges to have been badly beaten by masked Israeli soldiers. Many in Israel question the legitimacy of the video proof.
“What next?,” Professor Phyllis Chesler asks in an op-ed column of Israel National News. “Accusations that the IDF is using poison gas? Sterilizing Arabs through the drinking water? (Suha Arafat, the widow of Yasser Arafat, made this accusation standing right next to Hillary Clinton, who claimed it had not been properly translated).”
“Yes, it is possible that two Jews snapped and actually committed a heinous, heartless murder,” Chesler wrote. But Israelis, both leaders and people on the street, immediately condemned the kidnapping-murder of Muhammad, whereas Arabs celebrated the kidnapping-murder of three Israeli teenagers.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated, “I would like to send my condolences to the Abu Khder family. I pledge that the perpetrators of this horrific crime, which must be resolutely condemned in the most forceful language. I pledge that the perpetrators of this horrific crime will face the full weight of the law. I know that in our society, the society of Israel, there is no place for such murderers. And that’s the difference between us and our neighbors.”
Intercessors, understand this: Israel is in a savage neighbourhood and propaganda war. Blood Libels against Jews continue daily.
The very media that hastily readily reports Israeli air strikes in Gaza largely ignores the numerous rocket attacks on southern Israel in the last few days.
PRAY that more blood-lust is not unleashed. PRAY for the Abu Khadier family. PRAY for truth to prevail. PRAY for Messiah Jesus to return and take over the reins of the world, for it is racing out of control.
“For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.'” (Matthew 23: 29)
