Things are changing in our world quickly. There are things happening today that cause one to take pause to consider what scripture tells us. Israel is an endtime sign. And this world does not like Israel. For years America has played a big role in her protection, but something is changing. Young people in this county have lost touch with God’s word. The Fear of The Lord has wained from across the land. The reality in this country is no longer live and let live, but it is an intolerance in the name of tolerance. The left says you must tolerate me, but I will never tolerate you or your ideals.
Moderating a panel in Jerusalem this week titled “The Mainstreaming of Anti-Semitism: The Media, BDS and Celebrated Bigotry,” David Hazony, executive director of the Israel Innovation Fund, analyzed the issue right off the bat: “What you are seeing on [North American college] campuses is only a thin slice of the anti-Semitic beast that has emerged in our public life around the world in the last six months, in the last year.”
Hazony added, “All of a sudden, The New York Times’ editorial-page cartoons; all of a sudden, columns; all of a sudden, valedictory addresses, commencement speeches, congressional convocations, politicians—all of a sudden in America, you’ve got synagogues being shot up, synagogues being torched. All of a sudden, what we thought had been hidden, gone away, has come roaring back.”
He went on to ask: “Is it possible that anti-Semitism and assimilation—the two great crises facing the Diaspora today—are really two sides of the same coin?”
“At a time when the next generation of Jews feels less connection, has less knowledge, has less commitment to our collective than any generation in the past,” he continued, “is it any wonder that this monster that’s been lurking in the deep smells blood, smells weakness and chooses this time to rear its head?”.

A question that we must ask: Are these things which are now happening a warning from God to us that the end is closing in on our world? Who is the monster he references in his comments?
But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she *was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And I heard a voice from heaven, saying, “Write, ‘ Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on!’” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “so that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow with them.” Revelation 12:14,14:13 NASB
The occasion brought up in this scripture is of course the wrath of Satan — a monster indeed, depicted as cast to earth and apparently let loose to carry out his wiles. This wrath is seen in this passage first against Israel, bringing about a protection from the eagles wings, but as his efforts toward Israel are thwarted he immediately goes after the offspring of Israel. 1/3 of Israel will remain to be purged during these days. This is the time of their addition to the olive tree. Are we nearing that time?
Satan of course is a Spirit. What we see occurring today is spiritual. An evil is being unleashed on our land that just a short time ago resided only on the pages of scripture. Evidence of the evil had been present in other lands, and in pockets within this country, but today this presence is evident all around us. Don’t be taken in by His wiles.
