Hasten The Day!
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

Daniel 8:24-35 – Gabriel Interprets the Vision (of a Ram and a Goat) (KJV)
Dan 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. 25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
Revelation 6:1 – First Seal: The Conqueror
Rev 6:1 Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” 2 And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
White horse – Victory
Bow (no arrow) – Enforced peace
Crown – Royal authority
Daniel 9:27 – The Seventy-Weeks Prophecy
Dan 9:27 Then he [Antichrist] shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
Covenant – Victory through enforced peace
Confirm – means that there is already something in place.
You don’t confirm a hotel reservation that you haven’t made yet.
Hebrew word for confirm also holds the idea of ‘make greater’ – perhaps the 3rd Temple?
Perhaps the Antichrist 'confirms/makes greater' the Abrahamic Accords?
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 – The Day of the Lord
1Th 5:1 But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. 2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. 8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. 9 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. 11 Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.
Deuteronomy 33:13-17 – Moses’ Final Blessing on Israel
Dt 33:24 And of Asher he said: “Asher is most blessed of sons;
Let him be favored by his brothers, And let him dip his foot in oil.
25 Your sandals shall be iron and bronze; As your days, so shall your strength be.
26 “There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, Who rides the heavens to help you, And in His excellency on the clouds.
27 The eternal God is your refuge, And underneath are the everlasting arms;
He will thrust out the enemy from before you, And will say, ‘Destroy!’
28 Then Israel shall dwell in safety, The fountain of Jacob alone,
In a land of grain and new wine; His heavens shall also drop dew.
29 Happy are you, O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord,
The shield of your help And the sword of your majesty!
Your enemies shall submit to you, And you shall tread down their high places.”
Zechariah 14:10-11 – The Day of the Lord
Zec 14:10 All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be raised up and inhabited in her place from Benjamin’s Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses.
11 The people shall dwell in it; And no longer shall there be utter destruction, But Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
Ezekiel 38:10-13 – Gog and Allies Attack Israel
Ez 38:10 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: 11 You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— 12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land. 13 Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?’ ” ’
Jeremiah 30:10-11 – Restoration of Israel and Judah
Jer 30:10 ‘Therefore do not fear, O My servant Jacob,’ says the Lord, ‘Nor be dismayed, O Israel;
For behold, I will save you from afar, And your seed from the land of their captivity.
Jacob shall return, have rest and be quiet, And no one shall make him afraid.
11 For I am with you,’ says the Lord, ‘to save you;
Though I make a full end of all nations where I have scattered you, Yet I will not make a complete end of you.
But I will correct you in justice, And will not let you go altogether unpunished.’

5 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness;
A King shall reign and prosper, And execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
6 In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell safely;
Now this is His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
7 “Therefore, behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “that they shall no longer say, ‘As the Lord lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,’ 8 but, ‘As the Lord lives who brought up and led the descendants of the house of Israel from the north country and from all the countries where I had driven them.’ And they shall dwell in their own land.”
Jeremiah 46:27 – God Will Preserve Israel
Jer 46:27 “But do not fear, O My servant Jacob, And do not be dismayed, O Israel!
For behold, I will save you from afar, And your offspring from the land of their captivity;
Jacob shall return, have rest and be at ease; No one shall make him afraid.
Jeremiah 32:37 – God’s Assurance of the People’s Return
Jer 32:37 Behold, I will gather them out of all countries where I have driven them in My anger, in My fury, and in great wrath; I will bring them back to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely.
Ezekiel 28:25-26 – Israel’s Future Blessing
Ez 28:25 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and am hallowed in them in the sight of the Gentiles, then they will dwell in their own land which I gave to My servant Jacob. 26 And they will dwell safely there, build houses, and plant vineyards; yes, they will dwell securely, when I execute judgments on all those around them who despise them. Then they shall know that I am the Lord their God.” ’ ”
Peace Treaties with Israel
United Nations (1945)
The United Nations came into being in 1945, following the devastation of the Second World War, with one central mission: the maintenance of international peace and security. On May 14, 1948, the State of Israel was proclaimed, and five Arab nations attacked in support of the Palestinian Arabs. Israelis fought off the Arab armies and seized substantial territory originally allocated to the Arabs in the 1947 United Nations partition of Palestine. After two successive U.N.-brokered cease-fires, the State of Israel reached formal armistice agreements with Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria in February 1949. These agreements left Israel in permanent control of the territory it had conquered during the conflict.
The UN works to maintain international peace and security; helping parties in conflict to make peace; peacekeeping; and creating the conditions to allow peace to hold and flourish. (except when it comes to Israel now)
Israel has signed several peace treaties through the years:
Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty (1979)
Israel-Jordan Peace Treaty (1994)
Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty (1979)
The Egypt–Israel peace treaty was signed in Washington, D.C on March 26, 1979, following the 1978 Camp David Accords. It was signed by Egyptian president Anwar Sadat and Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin, and witnessed by United States president Jimmy Carter.
The peace treaty between Egypt and Israel was signed 16 months after Egyptian president Anwar Sadat's visit to Israel in 1977, after intense negotiations. The main features of the treaty were mutual recognition, cessation of the state of war that had existed since the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, normalization of relations and the withdrawal by Israel of its armed forces and civilians from the Sinai Peninsula, which Israel had captured during the Six-Day War in 1967. Egypt agreed to leave the Sinai Peninsula demilitarized. The agreement provided for free passage of Israeli ships through the Suez Canal, and recognition of the Strait of Tiran and the Gulf of Aqaba as international waterways. The agreement also called for an end to Israeli military rule over the Israeli-occupied territories and the establishment of full autonomy for the Palestinian inhabitants of the territories, terms that were not implemented but which became the basis for the Oslo Accords.
The agreement notably made Egypt the first Arab state to officially recognize Israel.
Israel-Jordan Peace Treaty (1994)
The Israel–Jordan peace treaty (formally the "Treaty of Peace Between the State of Israel and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan"), sometimes referred to as the Wadi Araba Treaty is an agreement that ended the state of war that has existed between the two countries since the 1948 Arab–Israeli War and established mutual diplomatic relations. In addition to establishing peace between the two countries, the treaty also settled land and water disputes, provided for broad cooperation in tourism and trade, and obligated both countries, to prevent their territory being used as a staging ground for military strikes by a third country.
The signing ceremony took place at the southern border crossing of Arabah on October 26, 1994. Jordan was the second Arab country, after Egypt, to sign a peace accord with Israel.
In 1987 Israeli Foreign Affairs Minister Shimon Peres and King Hussein tried secretly to arrange a peace agreement in which Israel would concede the West Bank to Jordan. The two signed an agreement defining a framework for a Middle Eastern peace conference. The proposal was not consummated due to Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir's objection. The following year Jordan abandoned its claim to the West Bank in favor of a peaceful resolution between Israel and the PLO.
Discussions began in 1994. Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Foreign Minister Shimon Peres informed King Hussein that after the Oslo Accords with the PLO, Jordan might be "left out of the big game". Hussein consulted with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Syrian President Hafez al-Assad. Mubarak encouraged him, but Assad told him only to "talk" and not sign any accord. U.S. President Bill Clinton pressured Hussein to start peace negotiations and to sign a peace treaty with Israel and promised him that Jordan's debts would be forgiven. The efforts succeeded and Jordan signed a nonbelligerency agreement with Israel. Rabin, Hussein and Clinton signed the Washington Declaration in Washington, DC on July 25, 1994. The Declaration says that Israel and Jordan ended the official state of enmity and would start negotiations in order to achieve an "end to bloodshed and sorrow" and a just and lasting peace.
Abrahamic Accords (2020)
In recent days, the Arab world is joining sides with Israel against a new mutual enemy, Iran.

Arab countries involved:
United Arab Emirates (UAE)
Rumors of Peace - The Elusive Hope of Man :: By Colonel Tim Moore
Amid all the chaos and unrest of 2020, a hopeful glimmer arose in the Middle East. The Trump Administration announced the Abraham Accords — a supposed new breakthrough in peace between Israel and two Persian Gulf states.
Ironically, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have never been at war with Israel in the first place. So what exactly did this accord mean? Will it lead to Middle East peace in our time, or is it just more shouting at the wind?
In order to answer that question, a little historic perspective and a lot of Biblical discernment is required. Since its founding in 1948, Israel has been surrounded by hostile Arab nations on every side. Many of them have declared the extermination of Israel to be their highest priority. That level of animosity led to four major wars — in 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973. Time and time again, Israel has fought against a coalition of enemy nations with vastly superior numbers and resources. But in every war, Israel has emerged victorious.
God promised to preserve and protect the Jewish people once they were resettled in their ancient homeland. He said Israel would be “like a firepot among pieces of wood and a flaming torch among sheaves” (Zechariah 12:6), meaning that they would exhibit great military prowess above their enemies.
Those prophecies have proven true. The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) is respected by friend and foe alike. This superiority has forced Israel to direct an extraordinary portion of its national budget toward intelligence and defense.
Ever since oil became the lifeblood of the world economy, successive American administrations have been ensnarled in the political morass of the Middle East. Recognizing that a cold peace beats a hot war, various Presidents have attempted to facilitate peace between Israel and its neighbors — typically by pressuring Israel to make concessions.
Thus, Egypt entered into a peace accord in 1979 in exchange for a return of the Sinai Peninsula. Jordan signed an accord in 1994 when Israel guaranteed Jordanian oversight of Jerusalem’s Muslim holy sites. And in 2005 the US pressured Israel into turning Gaza over to Palestinian leaders controlled by Hamas.
The crux of all those peace negotiations and accords — the prize that every belligerent remains fixated upon — is the Land. Since Israel’s inception, Arab nations on every side have expressed outrage that a Jewish state exists right in their midst. To this day Palestinian leaders reject Israel and claim that there was never a Jewish presence in Palestine prior to 1948. Overriding all of that, the city of Jerusalem — cherished by Jew, Muslim, and Christian alike — has been the grandest prize of all.
Underlying all of the acrimony is a satanic hatred of the Jews. And this remains very much alive in the “Arab Street” (the mob of citizens that underlies the official Arab governments). When Bill Clinton pressured Ehud Barak in 2000 to offer Yassar Arafat everything he was demanding, Arafat rejected even “the offer he couldn’t refuse.” The reason was two-fold: first, he was consumed with hate and did not really want peace; and second, he had stoked hatred in Palestinian hearts to the point that he knew he would be destroyed if he made peace with the Jews.
I witnessed the irrational hatred that holds sway over this region firsthand in 2003. During the war with Iraq, I flew missions throughout the Arab world. At one stopover, I had the opportunity to engage with officers from an allied Arab air force. They asked my opinion of the 9/11 attacks in America, then immediately blamed Israel. Sadly, they consistently reinforced each other’s anti-Semitic paranoia and tried to outdo one another with bolder and bolder anti-Israel sentiments.
The Abraham Accords
Golda Meier once said, “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.” Given this dynamic, it is no wonder that true Middle East peace has remained so elusive. And yet, it is the golden ring of American foreign policy. So it comes as no surprise that “deal-maker” Donald Trump waded into this diplomatic swamp.
With that background established, what are the Abraham Accords? In short, they “normalize” relations between the UAE and Bahrain with the state of Israel. That is diplomat-speak stating that they will now engage with one another economically and otherwise.
These two tiny nations are among the richest in the region. Fueled by petro-dollars, they have the highest standard of living and are arguably the most open to Western visitors and ideas. It was not a very heavy lift for them to want to benefit from Israel’s growing economic clout.
As these agreements were announced, the only question of land acknowledged publicly was an agreement by the Israeli Government to temporarily suspend the annexation of West Bank territory.
An Unbalanced Threat from the East
The greater impetus for this agreement is not so much the elephant in the room but the tiger on the other side of the Persian Gulf — namely, Iran. Since Iraq was defanged as both a threat and a regional counterbalance by America, Iran has emerged as the looming menace in the Middle East. The Ayatollahs and radicalized Muslims ruling Iran want to destabilize neighboring countries and solidify Arab hatred of Israel. Their motivation is an extremist worldview based on a Shiite interpretation of Islam.
Ironically, many observers note that Shiite and Sunni Muslims hate each other even more that they hate the Jews. So Sunni Arab nations are applying realpolitik to their diplomatic calculations. Applying an old Arab proverb (“The enemy of my enemy is my friend”), they see Israel as the best regional counterbalance to Iran’s growing power.
Iran understands this — as do other regional players. Under the Trump Administration, the US has welcomed this new Middle East détente and is grateful for a growing coalition of nations united against Iran.
A Dangerous Middle East Coalition
Lurking in the background of this diplomatic breakthrough is a growing threat on Israel’s northern border with Syria. Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan has blended radical Islamist ideology with a cult of personality, turning his nation against Israel. And it has joined with Russia to establish a presence in Syria.
Students of Bible Prophecy recognize the significance of Russia allying with Turkey, Iran, Libya and eventually Sudan. That axis power described in Ezekiel 38 will eventually launch the War of Gog and Magog and invade Israel for the purpose of seizing spoil and plunder (Ezekiel 38:10-12).
As Amir Tsarfati, an Israeli intelligence officer and Bible prophecy teacher said during a Christ in Prophecy TV interview, while there is not yet an “Aha” moment with regard to Bible Prophecy, all the pieces are falling in place for these end times wars to occur. The satanic hatred of some, and the political manipulations of others, will bring about circumstances that will ultimately fulfill God’s prophetic word.
How Peace Accords Can Endanger Peace
These supposed peace accords will create a shadow of darkness that will deepen and grow. Iran will become more fervent in stirring the pot with Hamas and Hezbollah. Coupled with Palestinian recognition that they are being abandoned by their former Arab benefactors, this will lead to desperate measures by Israel’s closest enemies. With Hamas, Hezbollah, the Palestinians and terrorist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood fomenting hatred and swaying the official policy of the Psalm 83 nations, a prophetic war may soon come to pass:
…behold, Your enemies make an uproar, and those who hate You have exalted themselves. They make shrewd plans against Your people, and conspire together against Your treasured ones. They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.” (Psalm 83:2-4)
If that reads like a policy decree by Hamas, Hezbollah, or the gangsters who run the Palestinian Authority, it is because hatred already consumes their heart and motivates their actions. These “peace treaties” will only inflame them more. Emboldened by Iran, they will lash out in a war of extermination against Israel. The result will be another overwhelming victory for the Jewish nation — so much so that it will expand its territory and begin to believe itself secure from proximate threats. And that is where Ezekiel 38 comes into play.
Those with biblical discernment realize that true and lasting peace will not be achieved on the earth — in the Middle East or elsewhere — until the Prince of Peace reigns from Mount Zion in Jerusalem. Until then, real peace will remain elusive. The words of the prophet Jeremiah to ancient Jerusalem will still apply as politicians pronounce, “‘Peace, peace,’ but there is no peace” (Jeremiah 6:14).
A Concluding Thought for Peace Seekers
Likewise, as lawlessness mounts in the world, peace will remain elusive for every person who turns away from God. Apart from Him you will never find peace.
But there is a way to be at peace — with God and on earth (Luke 2:14). Jesus offers this sure promise to all who put their trust in Him:
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:28-29)
UN HEADQUARTERS: STATUE OF LION WITH WINGS AS DESCRIBED IN DANIEL’S DREAM ERECTED
The first was like a lion but had eagles' wings. Daniel 7:4 (The Israel BibleTM)
A statue with Biblical implications has been erected recently outside the United Nations headquarters in New York City. The statue, entitled the ‘guardian for international peace and security, is situated on the Visitor’s Plaza outside UN Headquarters. According to the UN, the ‘guardian’ is a “fusion of jaguar and eagle.” It was donated by the Government of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Many have noticed an eerie similarity to Daniel’s dream in the Bible:
The first was like a lion but had eagles’ wings. (Daniel 7:4)
His dream featured four beasts – a lion with wings, a bear with fangs, a four-winged leapord. The fourth beast had ten horns.
The first was like a lion but had eagles’ wings. As I looked on, its wings were plucked off, and it was lifted off the ground and set on its feet like a man and given the mind of a man. Then I saw a second, different beast, which was like a bear but raised on one side, and with three fangs in its mouth among its teeth; it was told, ‘Arise, eat much meat!’ After that, as I looked on, there was another one, like a leopard, and it had on its back four wings like those of a bird; the beast had four heads, and dominion was given to it. After that, as I looked on in the night vision, there was a fourth beast—fearsome, dreadful, and very powerful, with great iron teeth—that devoured and crushed, and stamped the remains with its feet. It was different from all the other beasts which had gone before it; and it had ten horns. (Daniel 7:4-7)
The beast represent all of the kingdoms that subjugated the nation of Israel. The lion with wings represents Babylon. The bear represented Persia. The four-winged leapord represented Greece and the final most treacherous of them all represented Rome.
The verse is a reference to the final redemption whereby the Messiah arises from the demise of the enemies of Israel, represented by the beasts, to reign supreme:
As I looked on, in the night vision, One like a human being Came with the clouds of heaven; He reached the Ancient of Days And was presented to Him. Dominion, glory, and kingship were given to him; All peoples and nations of every language must serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not pass away, And his kingship, one that shall not be destroyed. (Daniel 7:13-14)
Having a statue representing Biblical Persia in the UN headquarters can be an ominous sign as the world powers have recently re-engaged with Iran, modern-day Persia, to negotiate a potential solution to their apocalyptic nuclear ambitions.
The sculpture was crafted by artists Jacobo and Maria Angeles.

Just when you think that things can’t get any more ‘end timey’ than they are right now, guess what? They do, in spades. This demonic figure you’re looking at is right now standing guard outside the United Nations Visitors Plaza, and performing the arduous task of securing ‘international peace and safety’ for our One World global society. Given the demonic nature of the United Nations, it makes perfect sense that they would have a creature that looks like it came out from the pages of Revelation, doesn’t it? Did you know that the United Nations, and their final destiny, is written in the Old Testament? Take a look.
“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” Zephaniah 3:8 (KJB)
The United Nations was founded in 1945 after the Second World War by 51 countries ‘committed to maintaining international peace and security’, in October 6 months after the end of WWII. The nation of Israel would be regathered 3 years later on May 14th, 1948. Nazi Germany and the events that took place during World War II was a type of the coming time of Jacob’s trouble and the great Tribulation. Since the time of Israel’s regathering, itself a fulfillment of over a dozen Bible prophecies, the end times timeclock has been ticking with an ever-increasing ferocity. The United Nations is a major player in events that are preparing themselves right now to take place, and indeed have already begun.
“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1 Thessalonians 5:3 (KJB)

Take some time to refresh yourself with Daniel 2, 4 and 7, Revelation 12 and 13, Isaiah 6 and other places to see how scary-looking hybrid beasts figure prominently in end times Bible prophecy that remains yet to be fulfilled. I understand that this statue at the United Nations is a gift from Mexico and all that, but I also understand this demonic statue they’ve labeled as ‘a guardian for international peace and security’ is the perfect symbol for the times we live in. 2022 is gonna be a gas, baby, a real hoot. Tick, tock…
True Peace and Safety
Today, as the new year begins, the cry for peace and safety rings more loudly than ever. I’ve written about the fears and calls for remedy of those fears in numerous posts. The prophecy below is one of the clearest in indicating when judgment will fall.
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
Following the Rapture of the Church, that cry will become much more urgent. As a matter-of-fact, the cry will be demanded from most everyone on earth at that time. The Antichrist will step forward and presumably have the answers to the deluded masses’ life-threatening dilemmas.
We can hear the cries even now beginning to build—not so much by the masses of peoples under the increasingly despotic governing authorities, but by the governing authorities themselves.
These fear mounting threats to world peace. Their fears, I think the evidence shows, is because they don’t wish their safe havens of ever-increasing wealth-building they’ve carved for themselves to be disrupted.
China wants to be number one in all matters of world domination. The CCP wants to retake Formosa (Taiwan). The Communist Party’s dictatorship has lost its fear of the US vanguard against their aggression with the current American presidential administration. The Chinese have, with patience and clever, even brilliant, strategies, tied up the US and much of the Western world with economic/monetary chains.
Vladimir Putin and the Russian military threaten the Ukraine and other neighbors. They have, by taking advantage of the Biden administration’s foolhardy green environmental/anti-petroleum policies, rearranged things in Europe and elsewhere that in a way that places increasing hardships upon the average citizenries.
Israel, in the view of the globalists elite, presents a great threat to their drive toward one world by demanding that Iran get of its nuclear weapons ambition. Israel is seen as the hold-up to peace in the Middle East to a large extent, despite that it is the Jewish State’s surrounding enemies that declare almost daily that they will wipe Israel off the map.
The very wealthy and privileged among us are picking up the mantra of peace and safety in the entertainment world as well. The very purveyors of ideology that has been at the forefront of the “woke” cancel culture and the rest of that insanity now seek safety from their constituent masses. It would be humorous if it wasn’t a sin infection that will ultimately enlarge the chambers of Hell.
The following report tells more.
After years of rising crime in Los Angeles, elites in wealthy neighborhoods are finally panicking about the recent string of high-profile retail robberies and home burglaries. Experts say wealthy individuals are purchasing bulletproof cars, safe rooms, employing armed guards, and even constructing walls with barbed wire around their properties.
The issue of violent crime is nothing new to Los Angeles, but a spillover to upscale neighborhoods has put elites on edge. The Hollywood Reporter reports agencies that provide private security are seeing increasing demand for private patrols…
Estate manager Bryan Peele, president and founder of the L.A.-based Estate Managers Coalition, said his clients have “fully equipped safe rooms that they can live in for a few days, if necessary, that are completely hard-wired with phone cables, Internet, everything.”
One of Peele’s clients has three bulletproof cars and wears fake Rolexes. “This guy will take a $200,000 Rolex and copy it, using stainless steel and other metals, so it looks like the original but costs maybe $2,000-$3,000 per watch. So, in the event that it’s stolen, the client is out a lot less money,” he said.
Many upscale homes are installing more cameras, constructing fences with barbed wire, and employing 24-7 security details that will protect them from once their private jet touches down to their mansions. (“Hollywood Elites Panic-Buy Armored-Cars and Safe-Rooms Amid Rising Violent Crime,” Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, December 28, 2021)
Crime in the most elite sections of LA and the surrounding area has risen dramatically since so-called reforms to law and justice have taken place. The madness has caused cries for peace and safety from the most vocal “wokes” in the nation.
Criminals can steal as much as $950 worth of goods and receive only slaps on the wrist. What comes to mind is the scriptural reminder, “Be sure, your sins will find you out.”
Woke culture is reprobate thinking manifest for the entire world to see. Turning one’s back to God, as we are reminded in Romans chapter 1, brings about upside-down thinking.
Sadly, many–most—will never experience true peace and safety, either in this fallen world or, even more tragically, in the world to come—in eternity.
True peace and safety are found only in Jesus Christ. Only He can provide the shelter from the Tribulation storm to come and offer us safety throughout all of eternity during life after death.
Read again the words of the Lord of all lords—the Savior who came to take away the sins of the world. Hear through your spiritual senses the compassion and love in His prayer to the Heavenly Father.
When the Lord Jesus prays, the heavenly Father ALWAYS grants His Son’s prayer. Jesus prayed for the children of God—all children past, present, and future, saved through Christ’s precious shed blood:
I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them…
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them (John 17: 9–10, 20–26).
