Peace and Security – *UPDATED


So much for security and so much for the highly publicized Arab spring and the seeds of democracy supposedly being sown through-out the middle-East these past few months. In a frenzy of anti-Israel sentiment, following the ouster of the Israeli ambassador to Turkey, protestors used anything they had, including bare hands to tear down the wall providing protection for the Israeli embassy in Cairo.

With anti Israeli sentiment at an all time high across the region including strain in ties with former allies, Israel is facing, perhaps their worst crisis ever, since achieving statehood in 1948.

Israel is in a very tight spot and the Prime Minister is under great pressure from all sides including his own government. With the noose around them tightening, many are second guessing the Prime Minister and are in favor of supporting a Palestinian state in the hope that finally peace can come to the region.  Desperate times call for desperate measures but, this is exactly what they should not do as it never works to try to appease your enemies.

As things look now, a proposal for a Palestinian State will go before the UN on September 20. but, I’m wondering if both sides might reach an agreement first; therefore, keep your eye out for a last-minute deal.

If Israel comes to some kind of agreement regarding the creation of a Palestinian state, they will at least feel that they have some voice in the process. If it goes before the UN, the conditions will be decided for them. The Palestinians probably do not care, which way it goes, as long as they get what they want. They are really in a position of advantage here, and they know it.

The Obama administration would like to head this off before it goes to the UN, because a vote would force them to show their hand.  A veto of the proposal would enrage the Arab nations, who would feel betrayed in the wake of our support of the recent “Arab Spring” and, a vote for it, would alienate millions of prospective voters at home, just as the 2012 elections loom ahead. 

We know, the Bible tells us that when they are saying “peace and safety” then sudden destruction will come. If a Palestinian state is forced upon Israel, you can be assured, it will not be peace and safety, but, war!  Therefore, I would not be surprised, if some kind of an agreement is reached before the 20th.

Don’t forget in all of this, that President Obama has yet to earn the peace prize awarded to him pre-maturely in 2009. If ever there was a big fish to be caught; this is it! 

The Bible tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:3:

“While people are saying ‘peace and safety’ destruction will come on them suddenly as labor pains on a pregnant woman and they shall not escape.”

In other words, before the ink is dry on any agreement signed, Israel will be attacked  – but, it will not be Israel who is destroyed, but, her enemies.  It is out of this conflagration that the Anti-Christ will rise and cease the reins.

Brothers and sisters, we have a ringside seat to the action and are active participants through prayer. Which ever way this goes, whether an agreement is reached, or it goes to a vote – either way, the outcome will be the same –the battle belongs to the Lord, and, we know who wins!

*Thanks to Jay for this latest development. “Palestinians back off UN Security Council statehood Bid”  Things are changing and changing fast – enormous pressure is being applied to both parties. Watch and see what God is going to do with this!  Full article here:

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6   Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!  Cindy


  1. A third possibility has recently come to light and it involves a European sponsored agreement. Wonder who will rise up to make it happen…

  2. […] as God’s word and Sister Cindy always say, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper who love […]

    [Thanks William for the mention and the verse. This scripture was impressed on me many years ago, while watching Messianic believer Zola Levitt Live on television. I can still hear his rich voice at the end of his program – “Shalu Shalom, Yerushalyim – “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem – C]

  3. 1 Thessalonians 5

    But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 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. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

    Isaiah 13:6

    Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a // woman that travaileth //:

    Isaiah 26:7

    Like as a // woman with child //, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O LORD. We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen. Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

    Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

    Revelation 12

    And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, // travailing in birth //, and pained to be delivered.

    — Is it just me or is there a pattern here?

  4. When people do what they think is right, they are responsible for the consequences. When people do what God say’s to do He is responsible for the outcome.

    [Great saying Jeff! Thanks for sharing it! C]

  5. It could be very possible that the Psalm 83 war might soon commence, those nations that take part in this war against Israel are not mentioned in the Ezekiel 38, 39 war, which would lead me to believe that Israel will be victorious in this war with Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Gaza strip.
    According to Isaiah 17, Damascus will become a ruinous heap in chapter 1 and chapter 14 describes her destruction as being swift.

    It is very possible that out of this war the antichrist will arise, after miraculously stopping this conflagration from escalating into a global conflict, and confirm the 7 year peace covenant with many nations in Dan 9:27.

    [Hi Mark, I think the scenario you present is quite likely and you’ve done a great job summarizing it; one thing is for sure – it won’t be long until we’ll know! Keep looking up! C]

  6. Thank you for your insights Cindy. I have been praying and seeking the Lord to know what to do. I have had no job since 1/2010, and I have asked the Lord for wisdom. He has opened my eyes to things coming and I am realizing more and more. I thank him for this time that He has given me to be home and study His Word; what a tremendous blessing. Right now, as I fast and pray today for my husband who is as well; he has a swollen optic nerve. He has pressure behind his right eye for a year now. The doctor has had him undergo many tests. His spinal fluid pressure is at 30, when it should be around 18. No one seems to know why? He has constant pressure and when he lays down you can see that his right on bulges out some compared to the left eye. Please pray with us for God to reveal to the doctors what is causing this and of course, we ask the Lord to completely heal him. Many blessings to you today. Let us keep seeking the Lord together and continue this journey of expectation and excitement!

    [Hi Katherine, thank you so much for writing. I’m so glad you did. Its a pleasure to hear from you and a privilege to pray for you. C]

    Dear Lord, We come to you in Jesus name, calling on you Father in our time of need. Lord, we know that you love us and that every detail of our lives is in your control. Father, how you use these times in our lives, we don’t always understand, but, we trust in you. Lord, I lift up to you Katherine’s husband and the swollen optic nerve behind the eye. Lord, give the doctor’s wisdom in treating it and please restore the eye to full health and functioning capacity. I also, ask Father for help with financial needs and medical costs that have come as a result of this illness. Lord, may you be glorified in this situation and in the lives of this family. In Jesus holy and precious name, AMEN AND AMEN!!!

  7. “Palestinians back off UN Security Council statehood bid” is hot off the presses at DebkaFile.
    This means it will likely be a full UN bid instead of through the Security Council where the US could veto it.

    This allows the US to not have to veto it, while allowing it to happen. Yuck.

    [Wow! Thanks for bringing this to my attention Jay – added to my post as an UP-DATE Well, all I can say is “keep looking up ” and be ready for what comes next, as things are happening daily and changing fast. Be encouraged everyone, I think we’re in the last heat of the race now! C]

  8. From NYT

    “Some European diplomats have agreed, but urged the Palestinians to turn to the General Assembly because they argued that its approval was more likely to facilitate negotiations rather than a vetoed bid at the Security Council. Mr. Araby said that Ms. Ashton, the European Union’s chief diplomat, expected strong European support for an elevation of the Palestinians’ status to “observer state.”

    “Palestinian Authority from nonvoting “observer entity” to “observer state,” a status equal to that of the Holy See.”

    “Let’s raise the Palestinian flag, and let that flag be the symbol of peace and justice in the Middle East,” said Mr. Erdogan, the increasingly influential leader of a NATO ally. He also took a harsh tone toward Israel, saying it is “the West’s spoiled child.”

    • And what kind of peace is that Mr. Erdogan? The kind that just throws anything that blows things up indiscriminately with out regard for who it hurts at their neighbors? That to me is a sign of aggression not of peace. Expecting to take that which does not belong to you is called stealing. Lord you are the one that has established the descendants of Abraham, as the Creator of all things it is you and you alone that is to decide how far this will go, Lord I pray that you would hear us and remember your promise. Protect that which belongs to you and turn people from themselves and back to you. Thank you in the name of Jesus our King and Lord.

      • Israel has the best armed forces in the world pound for pound, and when God blesses them; miracles rain on the battlefield i.e. 1948, 1967, 1973. If Erdogan had any sense he would repent trembling in sackcloth and ashes.

        God allows prideful men to rage against the innocent, and then crushes them in His fury.

        I feel a little bit sorry for Recep, he’s on the tracks and doesn’t hear the train coming. Recep if your reading this, repent and turn to Jesus, before its too late.

  9. All roads lead to Rome, always keep your eyes on Rome, according to a Bible in the News comment on a report from the Jerusalem post that Berlusconi, prime minister of Italy, has said that ten Italian companies have agreed to build factories in a new Palestinian state. Berlusconi would be a good candidate for Antichrist, according to Rev. Noah Hutchings, since as he says,
    “According to Daniel 8:25, the Antichrist will not only divide the land for gain, he will also make crafts to prosper as well as promising peace.” Noah Hutchings further comments on a YNET report of June 13 2011,”that in Italy there is an alarming and growing wave of anti-Semitism connected to an increasing alliance between Italy and Iran.
    Noah earlier before this says,”It should also be remembered that it was Rome that destroyed the temple, killed a million Jews, and sold the rest for slaves.
