"Obama said however that the talks compered by the international P5-plus-1 group over Iran's nuclear program would likely continue.
He argued that despite speaking out with a "unified voice" on the violence in Tehran, the world needed to recognize that the prospect of Iran with nuclear weapons was a "big problem."
"My expectation would be... that you're going to continue to see some multilateral discussions with Iran."
European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana has been authorized by UN Security Council permanent members Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany -- to discuss the issue with Tehran.
I don't think most Western nations have the stomach for another Iraq or Afghanistan type situation. Israel doesn't have the support from the international community to do this, and strategically it's complex. Iran has a number of reactors..not just one.
Russia has been opposing any sanctions that could really hurt Iran, particularly since Iran is a big weapons client, and it's unknown what Russia would do if Iran was struck, which is why US is focusing on "regime change". There's been talk of a 2nd Iranian revolution, but we're not there yet. Iran is accusing US CIA of killing the young woman who has become the "poster child" for this uprising.
Now, remember that the Baker-Hamilton report, called for talk with Iran, Syria etc.. Is talking to Ahmedenijad really an options? He's a raving lunatic.. This is why it really does look like US instigated this revolt..
Humanly speaking the situation does not look promising at all, but it does provide Israel with a great stalling tactic, a legitimate one at that. Their security..so it will be interesting to see how much pressure the world can put on Israel, while Israel is saying..."Iran is an existential threat to our existence"..
The flurry of diplomatic activity is interesting. Next week Obama will also meet the Pope. You can guess what will be the main topic of conversation. The tiny little country in the middle of the globe, Israel.
The next few months should be very interesting from a geo-political and prophetic perspective, and the outcome of the Lisbon Treaty will be extremely interesting and important, as well as who ends up running EU. We're all watching..
Another thing that went relatively unnoticed was that Turkey was in the EU lobbying againt this week for entry. The next EU president is much more sympathetic to this cause, Sweden.
The tragic death of Michael Jackson possibly caused by addiction to various prescription medicines is an all too familiar story.. I noticed as soon as this came out the Islamic news sources were less excited as claiming him or his brother Jermaine as one of their own. You would think that Hollywood and the music industry might wake up and see there is a problem when so many of their young die so early.
Their music and entertainment, which has been the "opiate" ( excuse the expression) of the younger generation, has provided an escape for the younger generation from the realities out their in our world, but has not provided them with the hope that we have in the Scriptures... We really need to pray for the younger generation.. They are being bombarded from all directions and have been anesthetized...
It's important for us to listen to His voice and understand the times and seasons, so that we don't waste our time...
Gen. 1:14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;
Season is used in Genesis to describe the solar/lunar Hebrew calendar..
Eph. 5:15-16 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.
I'm very grateful for the Shabbat rest I have in Yeshua, that I can cease from my own labor know that He has redeemed me, and the Shalom (wholeness-peace) He has given me,
Heb. 4:7-9 He again fixes a certain day, “Today,” saying through David after so long a time just as has been said before, “TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS.”
For if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that.
So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.
The world would look hopeless, were it not for the Sabbath rest that awaits us in Yeshua.. Joyce
Tit 2:11-15 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
There are many puppets on the string now getting things done for the powers that be to, Solana being the main one maybe ---- I am still watching a whole lot of them around the world. Obama is a puppet in this system as well I think.
Something similar should be done with North Korea! Unlike Iran, North Korea actually has nuclear weapons in their possession. The way they talk, they have nothing but an ambition towards nuclear war. Will Obama really make a decision to respond before they launch their nukes? Will Obama order a nuclear strike on North Korea? Let's hope we strike them before they hit us.
Amen...If we didn't keep our eyes on the Scriptures, we would get very discouraged..
God's truth is becoming like a scarce commodity in this world.
That's what will sustain us in the days ahead, and encouraging one another. Don't know what the folks do who don't have that assurance.. Scary to think about.
Bless you, Joyce
Very complex situation in the world right now. It's difficult to say what N.Korea is going to do. China has some influence there, but preemptive strikes are frowned upon post-Iraq, and a lot of nations have nuclear power that shouldn't.. Pakistan is a good example of that...
I thought this is a counter-New-Age blog. Instead Joyce and now Roma keep dividing us along religious lines. Joyce "loves Israel" but preaches against Judaism as if it were New Age.
If you want this blog to become one of Christian/Jewish battling instead, I can go tit for tat in Scripture.
They are giving someone else the credit that belongs to God (the Father) alone -- yes, ALONE.
See, now, that I, I am He -- and no God is with Me . . . .
I am the Lord your God , Who brought you out of Egypt. You shall acknowledge no God but Me, no Savior except Me!
[I Kings 8:60]
So that all the nations of the earth may know that the Lord is God and that there is no other!
“To whom then will you liken Me, that I should be his equal?” says the Holy One.
I am the Lord, that is My name, and My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images!
“You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord, “and My servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe Me and understand that I am He. Before Me no God was formed, nor will there be one after Me. I, even I, am the Lord, and besides Me there is no Savior.”
This is what the Lord says, Israel’s King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty, “I am the first and I am the last; apart from Me there is no God ! Who then is like Me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare it and lay it out before Me . . . . Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are My witnesses. Is there any God besides Me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one.”
Thus said the Lord, your Redeemer, the One who formed you from the womb, “I am the Lord Who makes everything, Who stretched forth the heavens alone, Who spread out the earth by Myself.”
I am the Lord, and there is no other; besides Me there is no God . . . . I will strengthen you . . . in order that they know from the shining of the sun and from the west that there is no one besides Me; I am the Lord and there is no other!
. . . Who announced this from before, who declared it from the distant past? Is it not I, the Lord, and there is no God apart from Me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none but Me. Turn to Me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God , and there is no other!
To whom shall you liken Me and make Me equal and compare Me that we may be alike?
Remember the first things of old, that I am God and there is no other; I am God and there is none like Me.
. . . and My honor I will not give to another.
You shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and I am the Lord your God , there is no other; and My people shall never be ashamed.
Whom have I in heaven but You? The earth has nothing I desire besides You.
Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you; O Israel, if you would listen to Me! Let there be no strange God among you; nor shall you worship any foreign God.
You alone are the Lord; You made the heavens, the heavens of the heavens and all their host, the earth and all that is upon it, the seas and all that is in them, and You give life to all, and the heavenly host bow down before You.
[I Chronicles 17:20]
O Lord, there is none like You, neither is there any God beside You, according to all that we have heard with our ears!

The Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad struck back Saturday, June 27, barely 24 hours after US president Barack Obama poured scorn on him and warned that "direct dialogue or diplomacy with Iran" would be "affected by the events of the last several weeks."
This time, the Iranian president included Europe in his verbal offensive against the US president over so-called interference in Tehran's internal affairs and threatened "decisive and harsh" punishment.

Quote away... I love the Scriptures.. You will never offend me quoting from the Tanach. I agree with David when he says:
Psa. 119:140 Your word is very pure,
Therefore Your servant loves it.
You haven't exactly represented my position accurately, but I'm not up for a debate about it. We'll just leave it there...

The only way you can say I misrepresent your views
is by a supercessionist allegoric interpretation instead of a literal one.
I have cornered you so many times and your views die to rise again as if nothing happened. That is robotic behavior. You cannot comment on my Scriptural quotes because you have no possible answer.
I am willing to drop my judgment if you cease your prosyletizing but that is like getting a snake to cease biting.
In the meantime, here are some more for you to ponder:
2Kings 19:30 And the remaining survivors of the house of Judah shall continue to take root below and they will produce fruit above. 31 For from Jerusalem shall come out a remnant, and survivors from Mt. Zion; the zeal of the Lord of Hosts shall do this.
Zeph 2:7 And it shall be a lot for the remnant of the house of Judah, whereupon they shall pasture. --- for the Lord their God shall visit upon them and restore their fortune.
Is 46:3 Hearken to Me, the house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, who are borne from birth, carried from the womb. 4 And until old age I am the same, and until you turn gray I will carry; I have made and I will bear and I will carry and deliver. 5 To whom shall you liken Me and make Me equal and compare Me that we may be alike? 6 --- they kneel, yea they prostrate themselves. 7---yea he cries to it and it does not answer; from his distress it does not save him. 8 Remember this and strengthen yourselves, take to heart, you transgressors. 9 Remember the first things of old, that I am God and there is no other; I am God and there is none like Me.
Ps 96:2 Sing to the Lord, bless His name, announce His salvation from day to day. 3 Tell of His glory among the nations, among all peoples His wonders. 4 For the Lord is great and very much praised; He is feared over all divine powers. 5 For all the gods of the peoples are nought, but the Lord made the heavens.
Ps 97:3 Fire will go before Him and will burn His enemies all around. --- 7 --- all gods, prostrate yourselves before Him. --- 9 For You, O Lord, are Most High above all the earth; You are very much exalted above all gods.
Ps 115:2 Why should the nations say, "Where is your God now?" 3 But our God is in heaven; whatever He wishes, He does. 4 Their idols are silver and gold, the handiwork of man. 5 They have a mouth but they do not speak; they have eyes but they do not see. 6 They have ears but they do not hear; they have a nose but they do not smell. 7 Their hands-but they do not feel; their feet-but they do not walk; they do not murmur with their throat. 8 Like them shall be those who make them, all who trust in them. 9 Israel, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield. --- 12 The Lord, Who remembered us, will bless; He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron. --- 18 But we shall bless God from now until everlasting, Hallelujah!
Ps 147:19 He tells His words to Jacob, His statutes and His judgments to Israel. 20 He did not do so to any nation, and they did not know the judgments. Hallelujah!
