When I Close My Eyes I’m Invisible
I’m nearly invisible now, in a good way-those that knows are regular joes.
Forever grateful that God has made me His child-the older I know, the more I get, all the more I see His workings in my life, in our lives, in our world which is merely His Creation.
A few kind words about Islam. Well, not Islam itself, but the peoples who have bought into that bogus tinny ringtone rendition of religion. They are doing the Lord’s work. You heard me.
“ 5 “Look among the nations! Observe! Be astonished! Wonder! Because I am doing something in your days— You would not believe if you were told.
6 “For behold, I am raising up the Chaldeans, That fierce and impetuous people Who march throughout the earth To seize dwelling places which are not theirs.
7 “They are dreaded and feared; Their justice and authority originate with themselves.”
History lesson. God’s own special possession, Judah was behaving ver’ badly, ignoring God and going after strange idols.
For their own good God was about to punish them, sending them off into captivity for 70 years. You remember Daniel in the lion’s den? That Captivity. Those guys.
Chaldeans were Babylonians who are now, in our times, the Iraqi/Iranian/Turkish/ the Stans.
All those mentioned in the last sentence now wear the dirty turban of Islam. They are united in their hatred of Israel, a spiritual hatred not based on anything Israel has done. On the world stage, Israel is as innocent as a lamb, surrounded by Islamic jackals.
So what? What’s the big D, Doug?
Eschatologically speaking-that is, in the period known as the “End Times” God is going raise up those Chaldeans again. They will, according to Scripture, be among the nations threatening to attack Israel with the intention of wiping them out…sound familiar?
God will cause these knucklehead nations to meet together in a staging area called the valley of Har Megiddo also known as Armageddon.
What we have witnessed in the past 1700 years is that Islam, a counterfeit religion, has had it’s proponents marching across the globe, seizing dwelling places which are not theirs. They are dreaded and feared, and their justice (sharia) and authority originate with themselves.
They are doing the Lord’s work of heating the cauldrons of hatred against Israel. Read Psalm 2 to see how that turns out.
