We are fast approaching the halfway mark of the year 2019 and much has transpired as of late.
Most recently, Israel had to endure a rash wildfires coupled with an excessive heat wave in temperature as of over 1,700 fires were extinguished across Israel. Firefighters have battled wildfires that scorched almost half of the Ben Shemen Forest, the largest forest in central Israel. Several residents had to be evacuated in small towns nearby.
So massive have been these fires that the government of Israel has had to rely on assistance from neighboring countries including Egypt, Greece, Cyprus, Croatia, and Italy to deal with the rapidly spreading wildfires.
The wildfires were reported during a sweltering heatwave that brought record temperatures to parts of the country.
In conjunction to the wildfires, for the FIRST time in the history of the Israeli government was unable to form a government after the most recent elections in which Benjamin Netanyahu won by a slim margin. He was unable to formulate the 61 seat coalition in the Knesset needed to form a government. As a result, NEW elections will now have to be held again for the first time ever in Israel on September 17th 2019.
It will be interesting to see who emerges in the elections this Fall all the while the Middle East has become increasingly brittle as Russian and Iranian forces are firmly entrenched in Syria and even Turkish troops are situated in the northeast.
The Bible mentions a coming war in the Book of Ezekiel Chapters 38-39 that clearly identifies these nations forming a coalition to attack Israel. Please see the post below for further insight.
As fires have been ravaging Israel, in the United States, over the last 30 days, there have been more than 500 tornadoes. That in itself is not normal. Since 1998, there has been on average approximately 279 tornadoes for the month of May. As a result there has been billions upon billions of dollars of damage and over a million cattle have already died due to the excessive flooding and rainfall the United States has been experiencing as of late. 38 fatalities have been reported as a result of this weather. Flooding has also been reported in several countries worldwide including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Mozambique, South Africa, and even China.
As the month of June has arrived, all attention is shifting towards the Deal of the Century. An interesting article that is a “must read,” in the Jerusalem Post reveals a lot of information regarding this plan:
Currently, Israel is extremely confident in her might and the prospects for peace have never been better or more advantageous the current President Donald Trump in the White House. Israel is confident that this peace plan is finally going to give them rest and world acceptance and on a religious front, usher in the arrival of their Messiah.
Matthew 24:32-35-–“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it[e] is near, right at the door. 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
