THE PERCEPTION OF SURRENDER – The cease fire worked out between on the one hand Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the like – and on the other hand Israel – has left Arab Gazans dancing in the streets as if they had won a massive victory. And despite the one-sided military successes of the IDF, Israeli residents are said to view the seven week war as a defeat. Many are considering moving away from the border.[i] What’s interesting however, is that through the course of the war Israel managed to create a 5km buffer zone around Gaza. This could serve as the possible set up for the fulfillment of Obadiah which clearly prophesies the destruction of the entire Palestinian nation.
Look at the passage found in Obadiah 1:15-18. “For the day of the Lord is near upon all the nations. As you have done, it shall be done to you; your deeds shall return on your own head. For as you have drunk on my holy mountain, so all the nations shall drink continually; they shall drink and swallow, and shall be as though they had never been. But in Mount Zion there shall be those who escape, and it shall be holy, and the house of Jacob shall possess their own possessions. The house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau stubble; they shall burn them and consume them, and there shall be no survivor for the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken.” (Obadiah 1:15-18)
So now Israel has put in place a security fence to protect them from suicide bombers operating from the West Bank and a buffer zone that separates the Arabs of Gaza from Israeli citizens. This leads David Bay of Cutting Edge Ministries to conclude that Israel is in the perfect position to fulfill the prophecy of Obadiah. This former military intelligence operative believes that it will come from the use of fuel air weapons. Bay writes: “Prime Minister Netanyahu ordered a 5 km buffer zone all the way around Gaza. We believe this buffer zone was the real goal of this entire campaign…. Israel accomplished her major goal of using the war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip as the excuse to create the buffer zone she will need as she carries out God’s decree of judgment in Obadiah 15-18! The real agenda was never to defeat Hamas, nor disarm her, but to prepare the Gaza Strip Palestinians for annihilation.”[ii] Don’t know about that! But there is that prophecy in Obadiah that will be fulfilled.
HOW FAR WE’VE FALLEN – Oklahoma City has leased space to a satanic group, the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, so that a black mass can be performed on September 21st of this year. Here is some of what the occult group has to say about itself, taken from their own website. “The Dakhma of Angra Mainyu is a religious and educational church dedicated to Angra Mainyu (Ahriman). Angra Mainyu is seen as a destroyer. This is coming from an ancient Middle Easterner and Indian perspective of the principle of creation through the destruction.” They go on to explain their twisted doctrine. “Destruction and Reconstruction is another way of describing the Death and Rebirth cycle of life. Systems and structures must be dismantled so that new life can be born….Dakhma of Angra Mainyu is about freedom from any religion that chooses to bind you to some type of dogma the forces you to restrain your natural animal instincts….The Clergy of the Dakhma are charged with helping those to break the chains of enslavement through education of logic, lesser magic, and Ritual Magic.” They go on to celebrate the freedom found in destruction, concluding with this thought. “Why not choose freedom? Choose Angra Mainyu, and become a natural animal of flesh once again.”[iii] It is not accident that this notion of ‘order out of chaos’ has become the adopted theme of the Illuminati and the promoters of the New World Order.
Jesus clearly called us out of this subjugation to the flesh when He addressed Nicodemus, as recorded in the 3rd chapter of John. “Jesus answered, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.’” (John 3:5-6)
As to the black mass itself, World Net Daily goes on to report: “The Catholic Archbishop of Oklahoma City has agreed to drop a lawsuit against a satanic cult that plans to perform a ‘black mass’ in the city now that the cult has returned a stolen consecrated host to the church.”[iv] It is a tragic thing that we as a nation are abandoning the fight for the things of God. The Church has retreated on all the cultural issues. First abortion, then homosexuality and now we are beginning to surrender on this issue of the public expression of satanic worship. Scripture gives us this clear warning: “The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God.” (Psalm 9:17)
