My apologies for the delay to those who faithfully look for my posts every week, but the motherboard (who named it that?) on my computer decided on it's own to "retire" without warning and the results were predictable. So after waiting a week to get a new one installed, and discovering how much was "lost" and after having to rebuild, I think I'm back in a position to pick up where we left off. Hopefully this won't happen again anytime soon, or at least until I figure out what "backup" means.
Actually, although it might sound far fetched to some, I am curious as to the timing of my system failure. Many events in the Middle East are beginning to combine in such a way as to point exactly to the prophetic scenarios detailed in the Bible to occur immediately before, and after, the beginning of the tribulation. Some of you have read my book on the Isaiah 17 prophecy, and are familiar with the geopolitical alliances revealed there which exist at the time of the destruction of Damascus. These are also detailed extensively in the book "Isralestine" by Bill Salus which examines the prophecy of Psalms 83. I had just received an e-mail from him concerning the events outlined in my book when my system crashed. Coincidence? Who knows. But what I do know, and what many are seeing right now occur in the Middle East, is an acceleration of events which seem to be pointing to a very rapid fulfillment of these prophecies.
What I am going to do today is simply give you some links to follow to read what I and many others are seeing. I hope they will encourage you to be even more diligent to "scatter seed" and take advantage of the little time we have left. Remember, if you would like a copy of my book, they are free and I can send you a copy by e-mail as they are in an adobe pdf file. I'm sure there is probably a way to add it to this blog as a click and download feature, but I'm sure you have figured out by now I am not the most computer literate guy out here. So just e-mail me your request and I will send it along.
