Trend Update: Tension Mounts in Gaza Strip… Again, June 2018

Posted in Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 20, 2018 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 25:15-17 Thus says the Lord God, “Because the Philistines have acted in revenge and have taken vengeance with scorn of soul to destroy with everlasting enmity,” therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will stretch out My hand against the Philistines, even cut off the Cherethites and destroy the remnant of the seacoast. I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes; and they will know that I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance on them.”

Ancient Philistia or the Philistines are the people who occupied what is the modern day Gaza Strip. The reference to the Cherethites is thought to be a group of people from the island of Crete. Historically, they relocated to Philistia. At one time, the Cherethites were security for King David of Israel. The name in the Hebrew means “executioners”.

See video link below for analysis and geography.

June 20, 2018: Military activity is increasing in and around the Gaza Strip again. Israel has responded to a variety of arson tactics and missiles utilized by terrorists.

Per Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), Hamas has fired 45 plus rockets and mortars into Israel. Targets include neighborhoods, private property, and schools. Civilians, not military installations, were targeted.

Israel responded with 3 waves of attacks on Hamas military targets.

Terrorist activity has continued for weeks from the Gaza Strip. Palestinians have attached explosives to different kinds of aerial devices which fly into Israel. The wind from the Mediterranean Sea blows the air born devices into Israel. As a result, fires have destroyed private property and crops.

The term “device” is used loosely. These “devices” include kites, birthday balloons, and condoms. Explosives are attached. In some cases, a metal mesh pouch will hold burning coal or soaked flammable rags. The wind driven “devices” are crudely constructed but effective.

“They are not toys, they are weapons that are intended to kill and inflict damage,” IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.

A particular curiosity is the use of condoms. Where did they come from? The United Nations World Health Organization denies distributing condoms to the Palestinians… allegedly.

Israel has countered the “devices” from the Gaza Strip by utilizing drones. Israel is looking to stop helium deliveries to the Palestinian people. Warning shots are being fired at manufacturers of such “devices”.

“If someone shoots at your family, you shoot at him… if someone sends burning and exploding balloons, you shoot at him. It is so obvious that I find it hard to believe that I need to explain,” Education Minister Naftali Bennett.

February 2018: Living conditions in the Gaza Strip continue to decline. Fuel for electricity continues to be in short supply. Currently there is only enough fuel to accommodate 4 hours of electricity per day. With the lack of electricity, hundreds of tons of food are spoiling.

The World Health Organization has recently delivered 5+ tons of medical supplies, medicine, and equipment. As a result, labs and blood supplies are being severely hampered.

Gaza is reported to 14 hospitals. 300,000 patients are in need of care. Over 6,000 health care workers have not been paid since the summer of 2014. Doctors who have been out of practice for over 10 years are returning to work free of charge to fill the gaps.

February 17, 2018: Palestinians rigged an explosive device to a Palestinian flag on the border with Israel. An explosion occurred when Israeli troops attempted to remove the flag. Four Israeli soldiers were injured.

“The incident on the Gaza border was a very serious one. We will respond in kind. I am sending to the wounded my wishes for a speedy recovery,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Israel wasted no time responding. The terrorist organization Hamas was targeted. Tunnels, military compounds, and ammunition sites were destroyed.

Israel has military considerations in the south with the Gaza Strip and in the north with the Golan Heights.

Matthew 24:6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. -Jesus

December 4, 2017: As of the writing of this post, rocket sirens are blaring for at least the fifth time this evening in southern Israel. Information provided Israel News Feed. https://twitter.com/IsraelHatzolah

 

The back drop of all the noise is a potential announcement from President Donald Trump. Will he declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in accordance with United States Congressional legislation? Will President Trump move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem?

If President Trump makes either or both declarations, the religion of peace is not making peaceful promises…

Trend Update: Israel & Palestinians Exchange Missiles in Gaza Strip, March 2017

Posted in Gaza Strip/Philistia, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2017 by paulthepoke

Ezekiel 25:15-17 Thus says the Lord God, “Because the Philistines have acted in revenge and have taken vengeance with scorn of soul to destroy with everlasting enmity,” therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will stretch out My hand against the Philistines, even cut off the Cherethites and destroy the remnant of the seacoast. I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes; and they will know that I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance on them.”

Philistia or the Philistines are the people who make up what is the modern day Gaza Strip. This group is associated with Hamas and Sunni Muslims. If the United Nations gets it way, this will be part of the future nation of Palestine.

The reference to the Cherethites is thought to be a group of people from the island of Crete. Historically, they relocated to Philistia. At one time, the Cherethites were security for King David of Israel. The name in the Hebrew means “executioners”.

March 1, 2017: In the last few days, Israel has launched airstrikes against Palestinian resistance factions in the northern and central Gaza Strip. The airstrikes are in response to Palestinian rockets being fired into Israel. Rocket fire into Israel has been noted over the past couple of weeks.

Rockets fired into Israel by the Palestinians have not caused damage or injuries. Ordinance fired into the Gaza Strip by Israel has hit designated targets with destruction and injuries.

“We will not allow Israel to continue targeting resistance positions in Gaza. These moves are intended to escalate the situation,” Hamas said in a statement.

“Hamas will not accept the imposition of a new [military] equation on the Palestinian resistance,” the statement read.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “We are not ready to accept any drizzle of rockets. We will respond to every [rocket] fired into our territory. That is what we did today and that is what we will also do in the future.”

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman stated, “We have no intention of continuing to absorb sporadic fire [from the Gaza Strip]. Hamas must take responsibility and relax.”
