Inspectors from the UN atomic watchdog are "alarmed" that Iran has in its possession a document describing the process for making what could be the core of a nuclear weapon, a Western diplomat said Thursday. The 15-page document describes the process of machining uranium metal into two hemispheres of the kind used in nuclear warheads.
At a closed-door meeting with diplomats, the International Atomic Energy Agency's chief for inspections, Olli Heinonen, revealed that the agency had gathered intelligence from around ten countries suggesting Iran was engaged in weaponization studies in the past. "The term he used for this document was 'alarming.' He essentially said there was no reason why a country would need to possess such a document unless they wanted to produce uranium hemispheres for a nuclear weapon," the diplomat said.

Joshua Lall told parents he had a breakdown National Post, Canada
CALGARY -- Police said yesterday they suspect Joshua Lall likely killed his wife, two of their three children, a tenant and himself in their middle-class ...
Canadian father killed tenant, family, police say
If Joshua Lall said he felt possessed by the devil, I choose to literally believe him. This secular world completely misses the entire spiritual dimension that the Bible so clearly talks about. That dimension can't be conquered by mental health counseling, a drug regimen, or anything else other than Christ who defeated all evil principalities through his death on the cross.
The solution to these spiritual battles against satan's demons has been known for 2,000 years, but sadly the majority of people alive today completely miss the whole point of what Christ did for them, even denying that he ever existed.
One story that's almost on the right track, but still miles away...

1 John 4:
4 But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. 5 Those people belong to this world, so they speak from the world’s viewpoint, and the world listens to them. 6 But we belong to God, and those who know God listen to us. If they do not belong to God, they do not listen to us. That is how we know if someone has the Spirit of truth or the spirit of deception.

Marine in Iraq Suspended Over Coins Quoting Gospel
"We are sorry for this behavior," said Mike Isho, a U.S. military spokesman in Anbar province, which includes Fallujah. He said the Marine, whom he did not identify, distributed only a few of the coins and that the episode was under investigation.
"This incident doesn't represent the morals of the Marines," he said... The controversy over the coins, which was first reported by McClatchy Newspapers, came as a suicide bomber killed at least 16 people in front of a police station in northern Iraq...
In other violence, a suicide bomber killed two police officers and wounded 10 other people in the northern city of Mosul, officials said. A roadside bomb in Diyala province, north of Baghdad, killed two Iraqi soldiers and injured a third.
In the holy city of Najaf, Iraqi troops arrested five Bangladeshi men they accused of being terrorists, the military said. Officials said the men, who entered Iraq with a tourist company, were found with rocket-propelled grenades, explosives and CDs from training camps in Afghanistan.
Yes, they better confiscate the coins because they will disrupt the religious peace and harmony Sunni's and Shiites bring to Iraq. (insert a huge dose of sarcasm)

First documentary evidence Iran is into nuclear explosives, missile warhead design
The International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna based its new and damning findings partly on 18 intelligence documents submitted by the United States, and now accuse Tehran of willful lack of cooperation. Iran dismissed the documents as forged or fabricated.
Nuclear agency accuses Iran of willful lack of cooperation
"The Iranians are certainly being confronted with some pretty strong evidence of a nuclear weapons program and they are being petulant and defensive," said David Albright, a former weapons inspector who now runs the Institute for Science and International Security. "The report lays out what the agency knows and it is very damning. I've never seen it laid out quite like this.

McCain snubs 2 evangelists' support
McCain rejected the months-old endorsement of Texas preacher John Hagee after an audio recording surfaced in which the preacher said God sent Adolf Hitler to help Jews reach the promised land. McCain called the comment "crazy and unacceptable."
He later repudiated the support of Rod Parsley, an Ohio preacher who has sharply criticized Islam and called the religion inherently violent...
Woe to us because our leaders are deaf, dumb, blind and ignorant. Political correctness would kill us all if the God of Jacob wasn't in control. Hagee has referred to the Roman Catholic Church as "the great whore" and called it a "false cult system." He also has linked Hitler to the Catholic church, suggesting it helped shape his anti-Semitism. And Hagee said Hurricane Katrina was God's retribution for homosexual sin. McCain has faced a barrage of criticism over Hagee, with some comparing the situation to the controversy Democrat Barack Obama faced over the views of his longtime and now former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

I think what the Jews suffered under Hitler's tyranny is accurately described by Isaiah 66:
8 Who has ever seen anything as strange as this?
Who ever heard of such a thing?
Has a nation ever been born in a single day? [May 14, 1948 people! Praise the Lord
for the prophetic accuracy of His Word]
Has a country ever come forth in a mere moment?
But by the time Jerusalem’s birth pains begin,
her children will be born.
9 Would I ever bring this nation to the point of birth
and then not deliver it?” asks the Lord.
“No! I would never keep this nation from being born,”
says your God. 10 “Rejoice with Jerusalem!
Be glad with her, all you who love her
and all you who mourn for her.
[comments and bolding are mine]
The violent birth pains before Israel's rebirth in 1948, was Hitler's Holocaust against Israel. Out of the violent birth pangs of the Holocaust was Israel returned to her land under The Balfour Declaration.
What Hagee said about Hitler was correct. What pastor Parsley said about Islam being violent is unequivocally, and completely correct! But our "fearless" leaders are too chicken to tell us the truth, and instead they choose to appease Islam, lest Muslims come and cut off our heads if we actually told the truth - Islam is out to subjugate us, or kill us in the name of their idol Allah.
May Christ come quickly because the enemy will only get stronger and more violent up to that day. Praise God that he has a perfect plan. Praise God that we do not have to suffer His coming wrath.
23 I will show how holy my great name is—the name on which you brought shame among the nations. And when I reveal my holiness through you before their very eyes, says the Sovereign Lord, then the nations will know that I am the Lord. 24 For I will gather you up from all the nations and bring you home again to your land.

US Soldier uses Koran for target practice.
"I come before you here seeking your forgiveness," Maj. Gen. Jeffery Hammond was quoted as saying. "In the most humble manner I look in your eyes today and I say please forgive me and my soldiers."
It was a bit ironic (and sickening) to see General Jeffery Hammond apologize profusely and kiss the Koran to appease Islam. The General was kissing the book that calls for his and every other infidel's (i.e. every non-muslim's) murder. We live in a very strange time - few with eyes (or wisdom) to see.
Koran 9.29: Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book (Bible), until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.
Obviously, the Koran teaches that Islam will someday rule the world. At that time all infidels who do not convert will be in a state of complete subjection or slaughtered.
Q8.12: When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.
Can you see why Muslim fundamentalists feel justified in decapitating all who oppose them?Q9.30: And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah. These are the words of their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before. May Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!
This verse has "anti-Christ" written all over it. The majority really need to start waking up to this!

God is continuing to gather the nations around Israel/Jerusalem...
Command vessel USS Mount Whitney posted opposite Lebanon's shores
Ex-IAF chief warns thousands of missiles threaten Israel in future war
Last-days 'birth pains' have begun
1 [a]“At the time of those events,” says the Lord,
“when I restore the prosperity of Judah and Jerusalem,
2 I will gather the armies of the world
into the valley of Jehoshaphat.[b]
There I will judge them
for harming my people, my special possession,
for scattering my people among the nations,
and for dividing up my land.
The prosperity of Judah and Jerusalem has been restored. Guess what's coming next?
12 This is what the Lord says:
“I will give Jerusalem a river of peace and prosperity.
The wealth of the nations will flow to her.
Her children will be nursed at her breasts,
carried in her arms, and held on her lap.
13 I will comfort you there in Jerusalem
as a mother comforts her child.”
14 When you see these things, your heart will rejoice.
You will flourish like the grass!
Everyone will see the Lord’s hand of blessing on his servants—
and his anger against his enemies.
15 See, the Lord is coming with fire,
and his swift chariots roar like a whirlwind.
He will bring punishment with the fury of his anger
and the flaming fire of his hot rebuke.
16 The Lord will punish the world by fire
and by his sword.
He will judge the earth,
and many will be killed by him.
17 “Those who ‘consecrate’ and ‘purify’ themselves in a sacred garden with its idol in the center—feasting on pork and rats and other detestable meats—will come to a terrible end,” says the Lord.18 “I can see what they are doing, and I know what they are thinking. So I will gather all nations and peoples together, and they will see my glory.

“So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayher and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. And if one of the idolaters seek protection from you, grant him protection till he hears the word of Allah, then make him attain his place of safety; this is because they are a people who do not know.” – The Koran, Sura 9:5-6
These verses underscore the obligation, especially contemplation called the sacred months to seek to spread submission to Islam by Jihad or Holy War. This is in keeping with Mohammed’s teaching that the world is divided by Allah into only two groups, the house of peace and the house or region of war. All who live outside the rule of Muslim government are in the permanent house or region of war.
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book (Bible), until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.” –The Koran, Sura 9:29
This verse emphasizes that the infidel is to be subjected by force. If they continue to resist, they are to be executed. Special note is made of the responsibility to those who have the Bible, the Jews and Christians.
“Those who believe fight in the way of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the way of the Shaitan (Satan). Fight therefore against the friends of the Shaitan; surely the strategy of the Shaitan is weak.” – The Koran, Sura 4.76
This verse demonizes all who are non-Muslims as friends of Satan. This gives authorization for the most extreme violent means of dealing with them.
Sounds silly, but I would give my left foot to see Gog & Magog start today...only because I'd know I'd soon be getting a new, much improved body anyways...

Floods, tornados, typhoons, earthquakes, economic collapse, rumours of war ...is it just me, or does it seem like the birth pangs are becoming more severe? I still think our generation will see monumental things that will change this age forever.
If you've read Ellis Skolfield's The False Prophet, you probably can't help but think that the generation following 1948 and 1967 (milestone dates in regathered Israel), could see the coming of the Messiah. It seems a bit surreal to write this, even to this Christian, but God's plan for Israel must almost be coming to completion, now that Israel is back in her land (though not all of her land).
Keep watch. Don't get tangled up in life's "light and momentary troubles" because in a flash those things will all be over (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)

Will Israel Survive?
CBS News, NY
If Israel can't survive the onslaught of militant Islam, neither can the rest of the world
National Post, Canada
A paradox of pride, uncertainty as Israel turns 60
Choose to believe it, because it has proven true. Twenty-five hundred year old prophesies about 1948 and 1967 were proven absolutely true!
1 The LORD will have compassion on Jacob;
once again he will choose Israel
and will settle them in their own land.
Aliens will join them
and unite with the house of Jacob.
2 Nations will take them
and bring them to their own place.
And the house of Israel will possess the nations
as menservants and maidservants in the LORD's land.
They will make captives of their captors
and rule over their oppressors.
3 On the day the LORD gives you relief from suffering and turmoil and cruel bondage, 4 you will take up this taunt against the king of Babylon:
How the oppressor has come to an end!
How his fury [a] has ended!
5 The LORD has broken the rod of the wicked,
the scepter of the rulers,
6 which in anger struck down peoples
with unceasing blows,
and in fury subdued nations
with relentless aggression.
7 All the lands are at rest and at peace;
they break into singing.
8 Even the pine trees and the cedars of Lebanon
exult over you and say,
"Now that you have been laid low,
no woodsman comes to cut us down."
(Too bad too few see what's happening)
|This is the message[fn1] from the Lord against the land of Aram[fn2] and the city of Damascus, for the eyes of all humanity, including the people of Israel, are on the Lord.|
|Doom is certain for Hamath, near Damascus, and for the cities of Tyre and Sidon, too, though they are so clever.|
|Tyre has built a strong fortress and has piled up so much silver and gold that it is as common as dust in the streets!|
|But now the Lord will strip away Tyre's possessions and hurl its fortifications into the Mediterranean Sea.[fn3] Tyre will be set on fire and burned to the ground.|
|The city of Ashkelon will see Tyre fall and will be filled with fear. Gaza will shake with terror, and so will Ekron, for their hopes will be dashed. Gaza will be conquered and its king killed, and Ashkelon will be completely deserted.|
|Foreigners will occupy the city of Ashdod. Thus, I will destroy the pride of the Philistines.|
|They will no longer eat meat with blood in it or feed on other forbidden foods. All the surviving Philistines will worship our God and be adopted as a new clan in Judah.[fn4] And the Philistines of Ekron will join my people, just as the Jebusites once did.|
|I will guard my Temple and protect it from invading armies. I am closely watching their movements. No foreign oppressor will ever again overrun my people's land.|
|Rejoice greatly, O people[fn5] of Zion! Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem! Look, your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious, yet he is humble, riding on a donkey-even on a donkey's colt.|
|I will remove the battle chariots from Israel[fn6] and the warhorses from Jerusalem, and I will destroy all the weapons used in battle. Your king will bring peace to the nations. His realm will stretch from sea to sea and from the Euphrates River[fn7] to the ends of the earth.[fn8]|
|Because of the covenant I made with you, sealed with blood, I will free your prisoners from death in a waterless dungeon.|
|Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners, for there is yet hope! I promise this very day that I will repay you two mercies for each of your woes!|
|Judah is my bow, and Israel is my arrow! Jerusalem[fn9] is my sword, and like a warrior, I will brandish it against the Greeks.[fn10]|
|The Lord will appear above his people; his arrows will fly like lightning! The Sovereign Lord will sound the trumpet; he will go out against his enemies like a whirlwind from the southern desert.|
|The Lord Almighty will protect his people, and they will subdue their enemies with sling stones. They will shout in battle as though drunk with wine, shedding the blood of their enemies. They will be filled with blood like a bowl, drenched with blood like the corners of the altar.|
|When that day arrives, the Lord their God will rescue his people, just as a shepherd rescues his sheep. They will sparkle in his land like jewels in a crown.|
|How wonderful and beautiful they will be! The young men and women will thrive on the abundance of grain and new wine.|
Haram, Damascus, Hamath, Tyre, Sidon, Gaza, etc. are all areas supposedly threatening Israel today. I find it comical when, on Israel 60th anniversary of her re-gathering, the media wonders whether Israel will survive. Israel will not only "survive"; she will thrive into all eternity.
Her neighbors on the other hand are doomed, with exception of Zechariah 9:7 (interestingly enough).
God has made this known to us thousands of years ago. There will be no excuse for unbelief.
18 But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness.[a] 19 They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused.
8 “Do not forget this! Keep it in mind!
Remember this, you guilty ones.
9 Remember the things I have done in the past.
For I alone am God!
I am God, and there is none like me.
10 Only I can tell you the future
before it even happens.
Everything I plan will come to pass,
for I do whatever I wish.

"Those who think they can revive the stinking corpse of the usurping and fake Israeli regime by throwing a birthday party are seriously mistaken," the official IRNA news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as having said.
"Today the reason for the Zionist regime's existence is questioned, and this regime is on its way to annihilation."Nonsense Mahmoud!
Hebraic Heritage: What if the Bible is true?
Everywhere we look, we see evidence that the Bible is true. Predictive prophecy is but one example.
And if the Bible is true, then it provides hope to a dying world. The Bible is a lifeline for a world that has been taught there is no hope. The alternate universe of Darwin and Dawkins is a cold, random void that is scarier than anything Stephen King could come up with. But the world that is coming, thanks be to God, is the [complete] opposite [for those who love Him].

Iran called off the next round of Iraq security talks with the United States until it stops a crackdown on Shi'ite gunmen even as the US military on Monday escalated its accusations of Iranian meddling in Iraq, saying detainees have described being trained by Hizbullah in camps outside Tehran.

Iran rejects incentives that 'violate atomic rights'
Ahmadinejad is probably right about that. Why don't world leaders just be honest with Mahmoud and tell him: "You're a crazy lunatic- a Hitler II, and we don't want you within 10,000 miles of enriched uranium". It's much simpler and direct - lol.

I have heard it said...
"Bible prophecies [...] indicate in Revelation 18 and elsewhere that Iraq/Babylon will be incredibly wealthy and prosperous in the "last days" and a magnet for commerce by merchants from all over the world."
I have heard that some evangelical Christians are expecting a literal Babylon to rise up again and become a great kingdom. But how can a literal Babylon rise up again, in light of what God said in Isaiah 47? Ancient Babylon in Isaiah 47 cannot rise up again because God said so.
|"Come, Babylon, unconquered one, sit in the dust. For your days of glory, pomp, and honor have ended [past tense]. O daughter of Babylonia, never again will you be the lovely princess, tender and delicate...|
|"O daughter of Babylonia, sit now in darkness and silence. Never again will you be known as the queen of kingdoms.|
| For I was angry with my chosen people and began their punishment by letting them fall into your hands. But you, Babylon, showed them no mercy. You have forced even the elderly to carry heavy burdens.|
[my comments in brackets]
On the contrary, Isaiah 13 says Babylon is about to be completely destroyed just before the Day of the Lord's wrath. Iraq will not flourish; peaceful democracy will not reign.
3 “Listen to me, descendants of Jacob
[notice God didn't say ' of Abraham', lest the Ishmaelites think they're included],
all you who remain in Israel.
I have cared for you since you were born.
Yes, I carried you before you were born.
4 I will be your God throughout your lifetime—
until your hair is white with age.
I made you, and I will care for you.
I will carry you along and save you.
(and, by the way, verse 15 says Christ comes back while this is happening)
13 And I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs leap from the mouths of the dragon [Satan], the beast [the LBL beast of Islam], and the false prophet [Mohammad]. 14 They are demonic spirits who work miracles and go out to all the rulers of the world to gather them for battle against the Lord on that great judgment day of God the Almighty.
I doubt if we're going to see Ahmadinejad stop his so called "nuclear technology program". It is taking a while, but eventually this showdown between the U.S. and Iran will come to a head. An expanded war in the Middle East seems inevitable, and I think that is exactly what Ahmadinejad wants. It feels as though the U.S. is about to walk into another trap, but who else would intervene?
