Though not a certainty, it is exceedingly likely that Israel will attack Iranian nuclear installations this spring of 2012. Every second that Israel delays – likely waiting for the Obama administration’s approval – Iran gets closer to possessing the capability to annihilate the tiny nation that is the apple of God’s eye.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is being begged to hold off on any attacks on Iran until after May 29. This particular beseeching is not coming from Barack Obama, but from an Israeli group called “Bibi don’t start a war with Iran until after Madonna’s show on May 29” who operates this Facebook page. The Queen of Pop is scheduled to play a show in Tel Aviv on 5/29, and Bibi’s plans to set back if not eliminate the Iranian threat may interfere with the pop culture icon’s concert in that city.
As music fans plead with the Netanyahu, the bloodshed in Syria is fueling the raging Middle Eastern wildfire whose flames will lick America and likewise singe the hopes and dreams of idealistic music fans and the objects of their misplaced worship. In the city of Aleppo, civilians and members of the security forces blamed “armed terrorist gangs” for two bomb attacks that have killed at least 25 people.
The upheaval in Syria at the hands of President Bashar al-Assad could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back, spawning a military conflict involving many participants; namely Israel, Syria, Iran, Russia, China, and America. As the Greek economy defaults and the Dollar and Euro slide toward collapse, the drums of coming war of Biblical proportion are being beat today and its quaking cacophony will drown-out the repetitive rhythms and rantings of the kings and queens of popular music and culture; causing the hearts of many to fail in fear.
We are arriving at the pivot point; the seminal period in world history. Rumors and warnings of war have intensified since that horrible day of September 11, 2001. Over the last several years – by the grace of God we must believe – that initial expedited post-9/11 movement toward a World War 3 type of scenario has been slowed. During the slowed ticking of the prophetic clock, the populace has become skeptical, soft, and disbelieving. The mere fact that music fans are concerned that military conflict may interfere with a concert shows how lost, soft, unfocused and pacified our entire western culture has become.
I am no prophet, nor am I possessed of more privileges than the next man, but I do watch at the wall.
Because I watch steadfastly, until my eyes burn with irritation, I can say with all due reverence that people you had better wake up and get ready.
