Israelis were once again left dumbfounded by the behavior of the American Administration after US President Barack Obama on Monday appeared to be using Hamas terrorism as leverage to get Israel to resume peace negotiations under Palestinian terms.

President Obama dropped his bombshell, suggesting that he’d only press the issue of Gaza’s disarmament in the context of a final status peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The latest round of US-brokered peace talks broke down after the PA unilaterally sought UN recognition outside the framework of an agreement.

“The President stressed the US view that, ultimately, any lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict must ensure the disarmament of terrorist groups and the demilitarization of Gaza,” the White House press secretary announced.

What is really angering a lot of Israelis is the fact that the demilitarization of Gaza was a primary Palestinian obligation when the so-called “Oslo Accords” were signed 20 years ago, as Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz has pointed out in a number of recent interviews and press briefings.

“Gaza was supposed to be totally demilitarized. That is a Palestinian commitment signed on the White House lawn 20 years ago,” Steinitz told CNN, noting that former President Bill Clinton and those involved at the time all recognized the necessity of disarming Gaza as a fundamental step toward peace.

That Obama is now using, and allowing the Palestinian Authority to use the overly exaggerated militarization of Gaza as leverage against Israel is further proof to many Israelis that the American government cannot be trusted to honor or guarantee any agreement signed by the Jewish state.

No one considers history as if it does not exist. Can you negotiate with terrorists, which Yasser Arafat was? Now Abbas joined Hamas and all is but alas... regretful.

Starting with 70 AD to 1947-48 the Arab Israeli war of independence. May 15 1948 the State of Israel is born. Six Days War 1967, Yom Kippur War 1973, Lebanon War, giving up of Gaza, war with Hezbollah. 

Just look at the history and learn the truth. Politics is not about sides that whichever side splashes is favored. That's what Obama is doing favoring the terrorists who have proven their murderous tactics. To those people life has but a little if not at all. This screwed up mentality is just a game. Scoring a victory by blowing up people, all for public opinion and to raise Arab outcry.

[Isaiah 59:8] They do not know the way of peace, And there is no justice in their tracks; They have made their paths crooked, Whoever treads on them does not know peace.


GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Escalating their ground offensive, Israeli troops backed by tanks and warplanes battled Hamas militants in a crowded neighborhood of Gaza City on Sunday. 

The fighting, including heavy Israeli tank fire, killed scores of Palestinians, forced thousands to flee their homes and left dozens of homes destroyed.

Palestinian militants have fired 2,000 rockets at Israel in recent days, Kerry added, so many that Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had to interrupt calls with President Obama because there was a siren going off.

An Egyptian-brokered cease-fire was rejected by Hamas last week after the group said it was not consulted over the truce. Egypt's new government is hostile to the Muslim Brotherhood of its last president Mohammed Morsi, who was ousted last year, and by extension to its counterpart in Gaza, Hamas.

Since the conflict began almost two weeks ago, 410 Palestinians have died with 3,000 wounded, according to Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Kidra. Five Israeli soldiers and two civilians have also been killed.


The Bible

[Amos 1:7] “So I will send fire upon the wall of Gaza and it will consume her citadels.

[Zephaniah 2:4] For Gaza will be abandoned And Ashkelon a desolation; Ashdod will be driven out at noon and Ekron will be uprooted.

Ashkelon and Ashdod belonged to Philistia, but today these two cities are Israeli. Prophets Amos, Zephaniah and Zechariah spoke figuratively of Gaza inhabitants, rather than about these two cities specifically.  Also Ekron was a Philistine city where Beelzebub worship came from. [2Kings 1:2] And Ahaziah fell through the lattice in his upper chamber which was in Samaria, and became ill. So he sent messengers and said to them, “Go, inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, whether I will recover from this sickness.” [3] But the angel of the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite, “Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria and say to them, ‘Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are going to inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron?’ [6] They said to him, “A man came up to meet us and said to us, ‘Go, return to the king who sent you and say to him, “Thus says the LORD, ‘Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are sending to inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron? Therefore you shall not come down from the bed where you have gone up, but shall surely die.’”’”

[2Kings 1:16] Then he said to him, “Thus says the LORD, ‘Because you have sent messengers to inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron--is it because there is no God in Israel to inquire of His word?--therefore you shall not come down from the bed where you have gone up, but shall surely die.’”

In the New Testament we find this Philistine god again. Jesus was accused of casting out demons by Beelzebul; this name is derived from Baal, which in modern Hebrew means lord, master and husband. 

[Mark 3:22] The scribes who came down from Jerusalem were saying, “He is possessed by Beelzebul,” and “He casts out the demons by the ruler of the demons.”

[Zechariah 9:5] Ashkelon will see it and be afraid. Gaza too will writhe in great pain; also Ekron, for her expectation has been confounded. Moreover, the king will perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon will not be inhabited.

Ashdod is Israel's port city second to Haifa. From the biblical view these cities have been redeemed and thrive under Israel's control. 

Many Palestinian Arabs - Israeli citizens - enjoy peace and prosperity under Israel.  They have noticed that living in peace with Israel has its benefits. Many Muslim Imams know that this entire strip of land we call Israel belongs to the Jews, for so declared no one else but Muhammad in the Koran. The more they educate themselves in a peaceful manner the better they know their prophet and his book. Therefore, Muslims need proper teaching and they do respond accordingly. Other brainwashing teachings also work "wonders" to the point of Muslims blowing themselves up for the false cause.

Gaza in history

Actually Israel did not want Gaza, but it fell into Israeli hands during the six days war in 1967. However, Gaza prior to that, Egypt held the Gaza Strip between 1948 and October 1956 and again from March 1957 to June 1967. From September 1948, until Nasser's dissolution in 1959, the Gaza Strip was officially administered by the All-Palestine Government. Although largely symbolic, the government was recognized by most members of the Arab League. Following its dissolution, Egypt did not annex the Gaza Strip but left it under military rule pending a resolution of the Palestine question. 

The All-Palestine Government was an entity established by the Arab League on 22 September 1948, during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, purportedly to provide a Palestinian government for Palestine. After the War, the Gaza Strip was the only former-Mandate territory under the jurisdiction of the All-Palestine Government. However, the members of the Government were consequently removed to Cairo, and had little or no influence over events in Gaza.

We are a generation that settles the land, and without the steel helmet and the cannon's fire we will not be able to plant a tree and build a home.

This is from a funeral oration delivered in April 1956 by Moshe Dayan, then chief of the Israel Defense Forces. Dayan, a seminal figure in Israeli history, was honoring a settler killed in a kibbutz near the border with the Gaza Strip, then technically under Egyptian control. The thin slice of land had seen an influx of Palestinian refugees after Israel's 1948 war of independence, as Israeli forces seized and razed myriad Palestinian villages. Neighboring Arab states had fought against Israel's creation.

Dayan was sanguine not just about the strength of arms needed to win and protect a homeland for the Jewish people, but about its effects on the Palestinians displaced and dispossessed as a result. "Let us not cast the blame on the murderers today," he said in the same speech, referring to the Palestinians behind the attack on the kibbutz. "Why should we deplore their burning hatred for us? For eight years they have been sitting in the refugee camps in Gaza, and before their eyes we have been transforming the lands and the villages, where they and their fathers dwelt, into our estate."

A decade later, Israel took control of Gaza following the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.

One can see that Israel was not about the oppression of Palestinians, for they were oppressed enough. This also explains Hamas's hostility toward the new Egyptian president who suppresses the Muslim Brotherhood, which was sympathetic to Hamas and Gaza. 

At this stage 13 Israeli soldiers are dead and one captured. This will lead to further escalation of violence in the region.


While the people of Gaza suffer under the Hamas terror regime that brings them violence and destruction, Hamas leader, Ismail Haniya and his cronies jet off to luxurious safety in Qatar.

Eat and drink and be merry.

For the love of their country and the love of their people you run to safety. You order your human shields to return to their homes and guard your deadly arsenal but in the name of what?  In the name of Allah, hardly so. In the name of your despicable hate, which no boundaries can contain. Keep on spilling blood until you'll be drained of your own. The beloved Palestine will never fall on your crooked lap for you are forfeiting your future and dashing any hopes.  

Stuff your plane with your human shields and take them with you to Qatar. 





“At present we have a problem with the territory called Gaza,” the prime minister said. But he noted that the West Bank is 20 times the size of Gaza, and vowed that he was not prepared “to create another 20 Gazas” in the West Bank.

[Isaiah 61:1] For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep quiet, until her righteousness goes forth like brightness, and her salvation like a torch that is burning [NASB].
On the fourth day of Operation Protective Edge, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a strong and sternly open rebuke to John Kerry, Barack Obama, and any one else who would seek to pressure Israel to relinquish control over the West Bank.
“I think the Israeli people understand now what I always say: that there cannot be a situation, under any agreement, in which we relinquish security control of the territory west of the River Jordan” — a reference to the Jordan Valley and the West Bank — as Kerry had urged during a US-led peace effort that collapsed in April.
Citing by name both Kerry and the US security adviser Gen. John Allen, who was charged by the secretary of state to draw up security proposals that the US argued could enable Israel to withdraw from most of the West Bank, including the Jordan Valley, Netanyahu said passionately, “I told John Kerry and General Allen, the Americans’ expert: We live here, I live here, I know what we need to ensure the security of Israel’s people.”
“Adjacent territory has huge importance,” Netanyahu said, and could be used by terrorists to dig tunnels and to fire rockets. The closer terrorists can get to Israel’s borders, he said, the more rockets they fire — as the current conflict was proving. 
[Source: http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/blog/?p=23347]


Whether indeed Netanyahu said what he said or not, according to the Bible and its writer, God, there is no way that the Philistines or Canaanites will ever possess the Promised Land. The Land belongs to the Jewish survivors (mostly from Judah for Judah went to Babylon, by which time Israel was already dispersed; and when Judah returned to Jerusalem they came as Jews. During their absence Arabs moved in and that's when we come upon the first mentioning of Arabs in the Bible).   

Note: The word Arab comes from Aravah, desolation and wilderness.

Jews returned from Hitler's Holocaust and then established Kibbutzeem (collective farming), drained the swamps, planted trees and made the desert bloom again.  The British left then came the UN partition after which came the proclamation "The State of Israel is Born."  

At the point of giving Gaza to the Palestinians Israel started to run a test. Obviously Hamas, which won the elections by popular vote and now, united with Fatah, will never give up their struggle against the "occupiers of their land Palestine." 

When Saddam Hussein bombed Israel with his SCUD missiles the Palestinians rejoiced. Now they rejoice that Hamas keeps on firing thousands of rockets and longer range missiles terrorizing Israel; for that is all they know, terror.  They rejoice even though their houses are leveled with hundreds dead. They don't dare to speaks up against their beloved Hamas for they are equally being terrorized; and in a weird way love it. These people seem to not know love, joy and peace but only bondage and a twisted sense of blind belief and obligation. 

The rocket launchers are located in densely populated areas. When Israel retaliates they first send a warning, leaflets and duds, giving them ten minutes to evacuate and then they shoot. What is Israel aiming at? - Not the people but the rocket launchers and the weapons of terror. Those who heed the message do survive, but come back to a rubble. It's not the same with the Hamas terrorists who shoot wherever the rocket goes as long as it goes toward the inhabited places of Israel. Perhaps one of these rockets will land on the temple mount, wouldn't that be something?

The Gaza test proved that no Palestinian Arab wants peace with Israel. Deeds speak louder than words. Based on this failed test Israel has no other choice but to end it all. But how and when, we do not know, but Israel will end it somehow. 


The Arabs do not believe in the State of Israel and that State's right to exist and yet at the same time they want their own state. According to the (Christian) Gospels 'what you saw you must reap, the way you want to be treated you must treat others', etc.  

Go figure. How is it possible to make peace and live side by side when one has a state and the other is deprived of it? In the name of what? How can you talk peace with people who in your mind are nonexistent? Yet, a country with parliament, president and prime minister constitutes a state, which the Palestinians turn a blind eye to. Naturally so, they ignore Israel, and the longer they do so the less and less they will have... if ever. 

At this point both sides won't give up territory of any kind; be it rhetorically, politically or actually. The vise's clamping teeth do come closer and soon they will lock so tight, irreversibly and retractably that any new peace initiatives will be buried and rise no more

Fools of their own making remain in their delusional state for so it is written:

[Isaiah 47:10-11] “You felt secure in your wickedness and said, ‘No one sees me,’ your wisdom and your knowledge, they have deluded you; for you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’ [11] But evil will come on you which you will not know how to charm away; and disaster will fall on you for which you cannot atone; and destruction about which you do not know will come on you suddenly [NASB].


I have never heard anyone explaining this verse in a sensible way. What we hear is a bunch of sensational stuff, which too many have been addicted to. Strong words? Perhaps? Sometimes one must tear down the old in order to build something new and better.  

[Daniel 9:26] Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined [NASB].

Pay attention to the Book of Daniel for he specifically speaks of the Messiah who will be cut off. Then in the next verse he speaks about the Abomination of Desolation (Aravah, Arab and Islam).

[27] And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.” 

Now read the words of Jesus:

[Matthew 24:15-16] “Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), [16] then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains.

Obviously Daniel speaks of the Roman period, destruction of the temple (9th of AV 70 AD) and another exile. Then comes the establishment of the Roman Catholic church, (Byzantium) then in circa 600 AD comes Islam. Jerusalem eventually falls into the Islamic hands. The Dome of the Rock and the Mosque of Omar are setup in the place where they should not be (holy place).

This has already taken place. What is about to take place is the greater Israel, which the current events usher in. The temple will be rebuild, but not that God wills it, but rather man.

[Jeremiah 3:15-16] Then I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding. [16] It shall be in those days when you are multiplied and increased in the land,” declares the LORD, they will no longer say, ‘The ark of the covenant of the LORD.’ And it will not come to mind, nor will they remember it, nor will they miss it, nor will it be made again.

But man will build the temple and the Messiah, who was cut off, will come again.

[Malachi 3:1-4] Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the LORD of hosts. [2] “But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. [3] He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the LORD offerings in righteousness. [4] Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the LORD as in the days of old and as in former years.

Obviously, this Messiah will come not as a lamb, but as a judge. This kind of a messiah Jews are waiting for. The first coming was to find the lost sheep of the house of Israel dispersed all over the world and mixed with the Gentiles (Matthew 10:6 & 15:24). It is so because of Romans 11:25. Anything else is confusing brought upon competition. Church has been grafted into the cultivated olive tree by grace UNTIL... There is the fulness of time. Paul completes it with [32] For God has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all.

The greatest mistake most Christians make (leadership) is dualism as if Satan has plans of his own and he interferes with God's plans. This wobble confuses. The Sovereign over all creation God is fully in charge of times and epochs. However,  to a certain extent He permits man to have his way too, (in His permissive will), but ultimately His perfect will shall be done.

We are coming to an end of the Gentile age where all sheep have been gathered. We are being ushered in to a brand new reality, but barely a prelude to the coming of our Messiah.



Hamas to Fleeing Palestinians: Back in Your Houses!

Israel on Sunday gave the residents of northern Gaza several hours to evacuate the area ahead of an expected escalation of the Jewish state’s military response to ongoing missile and rocket fire that has effectively placed five million Israelis under siege.

The goal of Israel’s telephone, leaflet and other media messages was to as much as possible avoid civilian casualties as it seeks to deal Hamas the kind of blow that will deter future flare-ups.

But Hamas was unwilling to lose its most prized weapon in the battle against Israel: human shields. The group ordered the thousands of Palestinians who had already left the area to return to their homes immediately.

“To all of our people evacuating their homes - return immediately and do not leave your houses,” read a statement issued by the Hamas Interior Ministry. “Heeding Israel’s warnings only aids [Israel] in achieving its agenda…”

Late last week, the Hamas Interior Ministry more clearly explained that heeding the Israeli warnings could be seen as “cooperation” with the enemy. Reading between the lines, those who do flee their homes when Israel gives them the chance to do so could be labeled as traitors and therefore face a fate far worse than Israeli bombs.

By mid-afternoon, Israel had yet to carry through on its threat of a “significant” attack on Hamas in northern Gaza, possibly due to the failure or inability of the local residents to clear the area.

However, during the predawn hours on Sunday a team of Israeli naval commandoes did infiltrate Gaza and engage terrorist forces there.

The Israeli troops landed just north of Gaza City, where they were tasked with destroying a cache of long-range missiles and a launch site used to fire them at Israeli cities.

The Israelis were met by Hamas gunmen, three of whom were killed in the ensuing battle. Four of the Israeli soldiers were lightly wounded, and all returned home safely after accomplishing their mission.

Nuclear Reactor of Dimona

As Hamas desperately seeks what Israeli media termed a “quality” terror attack, it escalated rocket fire from Gaza on Wednesday and Thursday by targeting Israel’s nuclear reactor in the southern town of Dimona and firing barrage after barrage at the densely-populated Tel Aviv area.

Hamas and its allies have fired around 300 missiles and rockets from Gaza over the past week. And, while many have reached deeper into Israel than ever before, very few have caused any real damage, and even fewer have actually harmed Israelis.

Despite the lack of casualties, the long-range attacks mean that no fewer than five million Israelis (out of an overall population of just under eight million) are now living under the direct threat of rocket fire.

Hamas operatives have also tried twice to infiltrate the southern Israel coast via the sea, only to be fatally intercepted by Israeli forces before they could reach their target, Kibbutz Zikim.

In light of these failures, Israeli commentators believe Hamas and its allies are going for something of a “Hail Mary” by trying to hit either the reactor in Dimona or score a multi-casualty impact in Greater Tel Aviv.

The chances of a real catastrophe are somewhat offset by the tremendous success of Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system, which has downed 90 percent of the Gaza missiles that threatened to hit population centers or other sensitive targets.

Still, the threat remains, and a hit on Dimona or a successful strike on Tel Aviv would provide a major morale boost to Hamas and other Palestinian terror groups, and would likely mean an even more intense and prolonged conflict necessitating an Israeli ground invasion of Gaza.

Meanwhile, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ own Fatah faction has proudly joined the war on the side of Hamas, announcing that small groups of its fighters that remain in Gaza (including some Palestinian Authority police officers) have also started firing rockets at Israel.

If you elect to live in ignorance you have elected fear.

May I explain? You do not fear what you know as the truth. You fear what you do not know; therefore suspect and insinuate to be so or so. People who refuse knowledge refuse peace, which we all must pursue at all cost. The one who has no peace cannot create peace.

"Seek peace and pursue it" (the Bible NT 1Peter 3:11). One does not need to be religious to glean wisdom from the Bible.

The result often is that anything sensational captivates such people like these: the mark of the beast is already here; a tracking chip is inserted in people's arms in the US, those with Alzheimer's.

Allegedly, Obama said to an UN official that 'by 2016 America will become Muslim.'

  • Yes the chip is already being used. What will you do about it? Are you prepared?
  • If Obama planned to make America Muslim by 2016 then he's done a very poor job of it.

But those who hate this (mongrel) will do anything to twist anything he says, stomp him in any way they can, like Boehner and his crew. Boehner, (in German B├╝hner), is suing Obama for taking presidential executive powers too far.

Now, if you look from above on all this, not from indoctrination or any party's political view; you will see clear facts.

For 6 years Congress (Republicans hold the majority) blocked all new initiatives. It starts to look like conspiracy, but not so much Republicans vs. the Democrats, but specifically against the President.  The train has not been moving at all. Now that the train is moving, despite Boehner's hard work to block the president, he wants to sue the president. Setting a precedent, amassing too much power; Boehner's words. It was Theodore Roosevelt who used his executive powers for doing something good.

NOTE: The stature and influence that the office has today began to develop with TR. Throughout the second half of the 1800s, Congress had been the most powerful branch of government. And although the presidency began to amass more power during the 1880s, Roosevelt completed the transition to a strong, effective executive. He made the President, rather than the political parties or Congress, the center of American politics. Roosevelt did this through the force of his personality and through aggressive executive action. He thought that the President had the right to use any and all powers unless they were specifically denied to him. President Roosevelt also expanded the reach of the federal government in conservation. He signed laws establishing five national parks, and broadened executive power by signing the Antiquities Act in 1906. This law gave the president the power to proclaim historic landmarks, structures, and other objects of historic or scientific interest as national monuments. He interpreted this law broadly, and by the end of his term had reserved eighteen areas in this manner, including a large part of the Grand Canyon, Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, and the Petrified Forest in Arizona. Later presidents claimed 105 areas under the Antiquities Act, forty-nine of which remain so designated today.


Many people doubt their intelligence because they were put down when they were growing up; even by their own. As a result of this low self-esteem they refuse to rise. Result: fear of the unknown and any sensational wind of doctrine sweeps them off their feet.

Scripture: [Ephesians 4:11-14] (...) [13] until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. [14] As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming...  

"No longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine" for this reason.... But what? - Grow, attain, get smart.

You may be healed of poverty (externally), but poverty may be still in you. You may be freed of Egyptian slavery, but Egypt may be still in you.


Fact is that the world's population is composed of three types, the field, tares and the seed. Once you know it; it is easy to handle every situation in life.

Those in influential positions would like to hoard all people into only one category - the field the masses - and to control. Why? That's where the money comes from of course, controlling and milking. But there is the other segment of people who see it all. Others, (in religion) are too stupid to do anything smart because of the bondage of blind indoctrination, short of saying brainwashing; blind believing, etc.

Once you know who you are and are free, acquire wisdom and act on what you know; you will see a way out of trouble which no one else sees. You will understand what no one else understands. You will be led of the Spirit (Rom. 8:14) from above.


As we read the Book of Judges we begin to see how confused the people were then.

This sentence explain the entire Book of Judges. 

[Judges 21:25] In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.

No direction. The Levites were also confused. The God raised deliverers experienced God’s power, for He anointed them for this task, to free, but eventually all had problems with idols.

This sentence explains this even more. 

[Judges 8:23] But Gideon said to them, “I will not rule over you, nor shall my son rule over you; the LORD shall rule over you.”

Obviously, being under God’s power, still so fresh on Gideon, he let the people have what they REALLY wanted. They wanted idols so he made more idols for them. And although Gideon knew God’s power (and only His power and not God the person) he also departed from the only one God.

This inability to deal with invisible God the Spirit (John 4:22) lingers to this day.

Eventually Gideon fell trap for what one sows one will reap.

[Judges 8:26-27]  The weight of the gold earrings that he requested was 1,700 shekels of gold, besides the crescent ornaments and the pendants and the purple robes which were on the kings of Midian, and besides the neck bands that were on their camels’ necks. [27] Gideon made it into an ephod, and placed it in his city, Ophrah, and all Israel played the harlot with it there, so that it became a snare to Gideon and his household.  

The key word here is SNARE or trap. Gideon got ensnared through his act of unfaithfulness.

The sad thing is that everyone did whatever seemed right in their own eyes. They quickly forgot the power of God and their Great Deliverer who gave them His vessel Gideon.

 [33] Then it came about, as soon as Gideon was dead, that the sons of Israel again played the harlot with the Baals, and made Baal-berith their god. [34] Thus the sons of Israel did not remember the LORD their God, who had delivered them from the hands of all their enemies on every side; [35] nor did they show kindness to the household of Jerubbaal (that is, Gideon) in accord with all the good that he had done to Israel.


In Romans 13:1 we read that it is God who sets up all authorities on earth and not man. And although it seems as it is the people who democratically elect officials; ultimately it is not the people, but the Creator.

The other point is this: [Read Genesis 15:16] “… for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet complete.”

Everyone must be given some time to prove his or her true intentions and in heart of hearts bear fruit as to who they really are. Otherwise, needlessly so, we screw ourselves. And by such fruits we prove to be impatient and malicious fools. Once this poison of prejudice and malice passes through us it kills and destroys.

In Matthew 7:16-22 we read that 'by their fruits we must know or recognize them…"

Obviously one must be given the chance to prove and manifest the inward contents of heart and mind.

So it is with Obama the US President.

So don’t be swayed by fools. Watch and wait.
