Report: Syrians shoot at Israel

This is not unexpected, but if I were the Syrians, I’d try to stay clear of the conflict.

AL-ZAURA REGION, Golan Heights – While Israeli military sources in the Golan Heights are reporting Syrian military gunfire directed inside the Jewish state, Lebanese political sources are telling WND they expect a provocation of some kind from Damascus.
Israeli Defense Forces are attempting to determine the exact source of the gunfire. If the source cannot be determined, sources say, Israel may choose to ignore or officially deny it occurred in an effort to avoid widening what is rapidly becoming a regional conflict.
Meanwhile, Lebanese sources predict a small, limited provocation against Israel – perhaps a small skirmish or the use of Palestinian groups on the Syrian side of the border firing mortars under the direction of the Syrian army. It would not be a major attack, the sources say, just a minor provocation in conjunction with Iran to show Syria is in solidarity with Hezbollah and the Palestinians, who launched the original attacks against Israel on two fronts – Gaza and southern Lebanon.
Yesterday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said an Israeli strike on Syria would be considered an attack on the whole Islamic world that would bring a “fierce response.”
“If the Zionist regime commits another stupid move and attacks Syria, this will be considered like attacking the whole Islamic world and this regime will receive a very fierce response,” Ahmadinejad was quoted by Iranian state television as saying in a telephone conversation with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Israel has blamed Syria and Iran for the Hezbollah rocket attacks on towns and cities in northern Israel. In recent weeks, Israel has buzzed the palace of Assad with fighter-bombers as a warning against hostile actions.
Ahmadinejad has called repeatedly for the destruction of Israel – or for moving the Jewish state to Europe. Iran is believed to be developing a nuclear weapons program and has long-range missiles capable of striking the Jewish state.
Hezbollah rockets yesterday rained down on northern Israeli towns as the Jewish state’s warplanes carried out strategic strikes against the Hezbollah’s infrastructure and the Beirut International Airport. A total air and sea closure was imposed over Lebanon.
Hezbollah threatened to use longer range rockets against the major northern port city of Haifa, in which case military officials tell WND Israel would likely launch a major ground invasion inside Lebanon.
The fighting was instigated by a well-orchestrated Hezbollah attack against Israel’s northern border yesterday in which two Israeli soldiers were kidnapped and three others were killed.

    As I watch this drama unfold in Israel, I cant help but think that time is running out for people to repent and turn to God. We Christians need to be vigilant in our witness before it is too late. I am praying that God will put people in my path every day that I can share His good news with.

    What a terrible time for those who are left behind! Can you imagine the elderly living under the rule of the antiChrist? I cant imagine people the age of my grandparents being made to take the mark of the beast or be killed. And what about parents whose children are raptured but they are not? It is a thought that makes me want to cry when I think about it. I think about those people who have been deceived by Satan into thinking that they have been “good”, gone to church, etc, so they will have an automatic place in heaven. What a sad day when they are left here to try to survive without anyone to help them.

    I believe it will be sooner than we think!

    “Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.” Luke 6:28

    “And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.” Acts 7:59-60

    “And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. And said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted His raiment, and cast lots” Luke 23:33-34

    The will of our Father is to pray for those who despitefully use us. It is a weapon of our Holy warfare that is undefeatable in the pulling down of strongholds. Jesus used this glorious weapon of love when being crucified and Stephen used it when being stoned, and the result was victory for both, as well as victory for millions of us because it was deployed. Forgiveness and love are stronger than rockets, missiles, nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons. And it works 100% of the time! We are empowered with and one with Jesus Christ, so if our enemy strikes our right cheek, through the power of our Father, Who will never leave us or forsake us, we turn the left one to them, and we trust in the One Who knows the beginning and the end to protect us. The weapons of warfare are not carnal, but spiritual, and they are mighty to the bringing down of strongholds, 2 Corinthians 10:4.

    So please join with me in praying for all Muslim Terrorists.
    Father We ask You in Jesus’ Name that You empower us to truly give thanks for them, empowering us with Your love to always making mention of them in our prayers. We join together in the power of Christ and ask that they may come to know You as the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Father of glory. We pray that You give unto them the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Who You are. We pray that the eyes of their understanding are enlightened; so that they may know what is the hope of Your calling, and what is the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in the saints. We ask in Jesus’ Name that they come to know the exceeding greatness of Your power towards us who believe, according to the working of Your mighty power through them. Power just as You wrought in Jesus, when You raised Him from the dead, and set Him at Your own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come! Father we ask that they have peace that passes all understanding and that they have the very joy of Jesus fulfilled in them! We pray that they receive the Spirit of Truth, Your Holy Spirit Father, and that He comforts and strengthens them, and that He plainly shows them things to come. We ask that they are whole: spirit, soul, and body and that they are empowered to accept the Truth that Jesus has born their sicknesses and sins and diseases on the Cross and that His stripes have healed them! We ask You Father that they become part of the glorious Church that has been sanctified by the washing of water and Your Word and that they have no spot, wrinkle, or blemish! We ask that they become perfected in Your love and that Your love casts out all fear and hatred from within them, so that they may stand boldly on the Day of Judgment!
    Father I ask that You empower all of us with the fullness of Yourself to be doers of Your Word and not just hearers this day. A-men!

    We Are Blessed In The Power Of our Fathers Might!
