Stunning, Dramatic Change in the Capacity of Iran to Threaten Israel With Nuclear Destruction
Oct 1st, 2010

A news report issued by debkafile entitled -”The First Full-Scale Cyber Attack on a State," declares; “the debate over a missile, warplane or Special Forces strike against Iran's nuclear facilities is made redundant by an outside power proving able to partly cripple Iran's nuclear facilities by activating at will a malworm latent inside their control systems.”

This is a stunning change of events with regard to Iran's nuclear threat on Israel. Apparently this powerful virus has crippled much if not all of Iran’s nuclear industrial complex. It is reported that as many as 30,000 centrifuges have been shut down, crippling Iran’s capacity to produce a nuclear bomb.

In a late new flash it has been reported that the activation of the Bushehr nuclear generation plant is delayed at least until 2011. This delay is a result of the computer virus that has infected the plant.

In another news report from debkafile; we read; “An alarmed Iran Asks for help to stop Rampaging Stuxnet Malworm” - Tehran this week secretly appealed to a number of computer security experts in West and East Europe with offers of handsome fees for consultations on ways to exorcize the Stuxnet worm spreading havoc through the computer networks and administrative software of its most important industrial complexes and military command centers. Debkafile's intelligence and Iranian sources report Iran turned for outside help after local computer experts failed to remove the destructive virus.

One expert said: "The Iranians have been forced to realize that they would be better off not 'irritating' the invader because it hits back with a bigger punch."

Debkafile further reports; “As it is; the Iranian officials who turned outside for help were described by another of the experts they approached, as alarmed and frustrated. It has dawned on them that the trouble cannot be waved away overnight but is around for the long haul. Finding a credible specialist with the magic code for ridding them of the cyber enemy could take several months. After their own attempts to defeat Stuxnet backfired, all the Iranians can do now is to sit back and hope for the best, helpless to predict the worm's next target and which other of their strategic industries will go down or be robbed of its secrets next.”

While Tehran has given out several conflicting figures on the systems and networks struck by the malworm - 30,000 to 45,000 industrial units.  Debkafile's sources cite security experts as putting the figure much higher, in the region of millions. If this is true, then this cyber weapon attack on Iran would be the greatest ever.

We need to read the world situations in the light of what Scripture says, and not read the Scriptures in the light of world news. Scripture teaches that Israel will not be annihilated by nuclear weapons. The world has totally ignored Israel’s plight via the threat of Iran’s nuclear attack. The God of Israel has a program for Israel and no power on earth can frustrate that purpose.

God’s purpose for Israel is to bring her to repentance and faith in Him and then restore her to all the land He long ago promised her. To be sure, the Scriptures tell us that Israel will go through the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble.” The nations who interfere with God’s people will suffer God’s wrath.

Joel 3:2, “I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead (judge) with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” Joel is referring to the battle of Armageddon that awaits the nations in defiance of God.

The President of Iran has threatened to utterly destroy Israel off the face of the earth. He has been feverishly working to obtain nuclear weapons to accomplish this. It is Iran who will be destroyed in the war of Ezekiel 38-39, early in the tribulation period.  The war of Ezekiel will not involve nuclear weapons, according to the Scripture; trust God to see to that.

Let men rage and think they can defy God but God will have the last word. We have read His Word and we know what the last chapter says.

The Apostate Church of the Last Days
Oct 1st, 2010

The scriptures reveal that there would be growing apostasy in the church, an apostasy which would take place over the long church age. We are also told that this apostasy will climax in a world- wide counterfeit church that will totally turn away from the truth in the last days. In Revelation 17 this apostate church is called the ‘Mother of Harlots’.

We are also told that Antichrist will enter into union with the harlot church. He will use the harlot to ride to power in the first half of the tribulation period. At the midpoint of the tribulation period he will destroy the harlot and cause the world to worship him.

I believe that Antichrist is conducting a program of preparation to bring the present apostate groups and churches to the point that he can use them for his purposes. This program is well underway with the present apostasy that is in full swing right now.

In an August 30, 2010 article entitled, 'Religions should unite against radicalism,' Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, who is leading the project to build a mosque and Muslim/interfaith centre near the site of the September 11, 2001 attacks, provides a clue: "we are all in this together ... there is a common threat: Radicalism, which exists in all religions." He further states, "The real battlefront is not between Muslims and non-Muslims - the real battlefront is between moderates and extremists." In a Daily Times article entitled, "Interfaith harmony for world peace," the author Mohammed Jamil concludes that the 'fundamental reason for the turmoil and tension in the world is the absence of a just economic order.' In his reasoning, interfaith harmony is a means to solve this problem. In 2008, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia called for interfaith dialogue between Islam, Christianity and Judaism and said at that time, "If God wills it, we will then meet with our brothers from other religions, including those of the Torah and the Gospel to come up with ways to safeguard humanity." The king, who is the guardian of the holy sites of Mecca and Medina, reasoned that the major faiths "shared a desire to combat the disintegration of the family and the rise of atheism in the world."

Today the word that is bringing all religions together is the word ‘tolerance’. The religions of the world will tolerate anything and everything except the notion that Christ is the only way to God. The absolutes of true Christianity are intolerable and cannot be accepted. Any other and every other compromise is acceptable. Bring everything to the lowest common denominator and unity realized.

Today the coming together of religious groups and their unification in the cause of peace to the abandonment of truth, is leading these groups into the arms of the harlot church.

The most disturbing thing is the way that in recent years those who call themselves evangelicals have apostatized. Those who seemed to preach the truth, those who seemed to believe the truth, have now turned away from the truth. That is really not surprising when you consider that this is the very essence of apostasy. Apostasy is to know the truth and to turn away from it. The pulpits of our land are filled with apostates who say peace and safety and fail to warn our people and our nation of their sin and rebellion against God. They fail to warn them that the Day of the Lord is about to sweep them away! Today those men tell their people that everything is fine, just relax, don’t worry!  They preach ditties for dummies.  Instead of feeding the sheep they put them to sleep. They tickle ears with trivialities and entertain the unsaved on their way to hell right from their churches.

In a similar hour Jeremiah said, “Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.” Jeremiah 12:10.   In some towns and cities it is hard to find a church that is not pastured by an apostate.

 Hear the Word of the Lord, “....Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4
