Brilliant as always.

Important to note that Hezbollah & Hamas have also been using religious references in this war, that are arguably more instructive than the deranged evangelical/zionist ramblings of Israel & DC.

In particular there's a Hezbollah video that seems to have been overlooked.

On 8/9 October, literally just a day after Hamas's 'Al Aqsa Flood' operation started, Hezbollah released a video.

At the end of the video, Hezbollah made a specific reference to Genesis 7:17.

Genesis 7:17 specifically refers to Noah's Ark, and God's flood lasting '40 days'.

Dates matter to Hamas and Hezbollah. For example, it seems that October 7 was chosen by Hamas to start their operation to coincide with the start of the Yom Kippur War.

But consider this - '40 days' from October 7 takes us to November 15. Why might November 15 be important in this context?

Because November 15 is the Palestinian 'Day of Independence' (see below).

It also seems to be more than coincidental that the same Hezbollah video also showed their elite division, Radwan, in action. Radwan is specifically tasked with infiltrating Israel.

Hezbollah's message / threat in the video seems clear, at least to me. Hezbollah has stated very clearly that forced displacement of Gazans and/or a land invasion of Gaza by the IDF are 'red lines' for them, that may trigger their entry into the war (source below). These red lines have both been crossed.

My conclusion: the timing of the Hezbollah video with the start of Hamas 'Al Aqsa Flood' seems preplanned. Specific reference to biblical events in the Hezbollah video referring to periods of time mentioned in the Bible seem to indicate a degree of coordination between the 2 groups, that may well involve Hezbollah's entry into the war on or about Noveber 15, 2023, which is the Palestinian Day of Independence.

Why do I think this? As I said at the start, Hezbollah themselves seem to have already told us.

Whitney Webb wrote about those lunatics back in 2019...

https://www.mintpressnews.com/untold-story-christian-zionists-power-united-states-israel/260532/

As was explored in previous installments of this series, these Christian Zionists, much like religious Zionist extremists in Israel, believe that the Al Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock must be replaced with a Third Jewish Temple in order to usher in the end times.

These two groups of different faiths, since the 19th century, have repeatedly formed an opportunistic alliance in order to ensure the fulfillment of their respective prophecies, despite the fact that members of the other faith are rarely if ever on the same page in their interpretations of what occurs after the temple’s construction.

This alliance, based on a mutual obsession with hastening the coming of the Apocalypse, continues to this day and now, more than at any other time in history, these groups have reached the heights of power in both Israel and the United States. Parts I and II of this exclusive series explored how this branch of religious Zionism has come to dominate the current right-wing government of Israel and has led Israel’s current government to take definitive steps towards the destruction of the Al Aqsa mosque and the imminent construction of a Third Temple.

I'm an American, born again fundamental Christian who knows the Bible is the inerrant Word of God. I subscribe to the Biblical understanding called premillennialism. With that said, any religious person trying to force God into doing something is a laughable fool!

"The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭14‬:‭1‬

Thanks Simp, I think you've hit the nail on the head with this analysis. Pretty scary alright, we're all in for a rough ride especially the poor Gazans and goodness knows where we'll be in a year's time.....

Response to Simplicius' "World Plummets into Eschatological Frenzy: Unraveling the Implications"

This is what you get when monkey-ass human beings invoke religion and worse, global religions. If the world was still pagan, this would likely not be happening. The invention of monolithic, monotheistic religions will be marked by aliens as the "Doom of the human species". What did the philosopher say: "Mankind will only be free when the last king is strangled with the guts of the last priest."

"behind-the-scenes cuddling with Israeli leadership over lucrative gas lines"

Well, if Turkey invades Israel as part of a "get rid of Israel" push by the Muslim world, well, the gas problem gets resolved in Erdogan's favor, doesn't it? He didn't hesitate pushing into Syria over the Kurdish issue and everyone presumed that in reality he intended to seize Syrian territory with the oil, right? So yeah, I can see Erdogan pushing this right to a full-scale invasion of Israel. He thinks, "Why not?" And he's right. He can't lose - unless Israel nukes Istanbul.

See, people who think like "civilians" - i.e., believers in the concept of the state - just don't get how rulers of states think. As an anarchist, I understand state rulers better than most people.

" I slightly favor the outcome of the Western powers refraining from pulling the trigger on account of the strong internal opposition and fraying support,"

Wrong. You forget who's running things in Washington: the neocons and the Bible freaks you just spent half the article discussing. So how do you figure a handful of "dissenters" with no power are going to dissuade the freakshow from going all in? And what happens when Netanyahu invades Gaza and Hezbollah proceeds to to demolish half of Israel? You really believe the US Congress is NOT going to authorize the application of the AUMF - which they're already talking about in regards to Iran's alleged attacks on US troops in the region?

Get serious, Simplicius. It's one and nothing can stop it - unless Netanyahu backs down. Which I don't see happening because he can't afford to and survive (not that he can survive even if he doesn't, eventually.)

So, If our suddenly “god fearing” psychopaths who have hijacked the United States want to read more scripture, maybe the story of Joshua and the Battle for Jericho would be appropriate.

The original Mossad sent spies into Jericho and they stayed with a prostitute. (How appropriate) After the walls were destroyed the Israelis killed every man, woman, child and animal in Jericho EXCEPT their prostitute.

This is the Word of the Lord... Thanks be to God. Wackos!

The number of hostiles (aka - Palestinian militants) killed during the daring incursion on 7 October was omitted from all media reports because the inclusion of the number killed would have shattered the fiction (lie) that the Gazans massacred innocent, unarmed civilians - a fiction necessary to whip up

support for Israel's Revenge...

As with the US attack on Iraq, the msm is being used to promote the belief that the IDF intends "a full-scale ground invasion of Gaza"(TM)....Horror of Horrors !!! The deployment of ground troops hid the Pentagon's plan to bomb the shit out of Iraq from the sky...The IDF's "full-scale ground invasions' story

obscures the IDFs intention to clear-out "the cockroaches" from Gaza, section by section, little by little... We'll all give a sigh of relief and praise the IDF for coming to its senses, and allow our attentions to be distracted by the Next Big Distraction...

And there was no "intelligence failure"...Israel had simply deluded itself about its impregnable etc Gaza Prison Wall...Lulled by its own hubris...Hamas trained, and waited...It knew (or guessed right) that the Israeli Hubris would eventually create possibilities for incursions to snatch hostage to be use to

trade for the release of Palestinian in Israeli prisons...Hamas motto "Be Prepared"... So when IDF forces were sent to quell "troubles" elsewhere, Hamas acted...

The hubris also explains why a Rave was belatedly shifted to a not very secure area close to Gaza...A hubris that has the entrenched belief "the cockroaches" could not pull-off the daring "something big planned" the Israelis were alerted to...

>>>> YOU ARE HERE! <<<<

Death toll in Gaza reaches 100k

Hezbollah fires off thousands of Fateh-110s at Israel and murders some 50k+ in retaliation at major urban centres.

USN uses Tomahawks and other munitions to murder some 250k+ in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen, Palestine and Iran as retaliation.

Iran uses Shahabs, Sejjils and Soumars to murder 300k+ Israelis and 30k+ Muricans. All carrier battle groups are sunk or mortally wounded by said TBMs and Cruise Missiles.

Formal declaration of war on Iran.

Iran invokes SCO clauses on defence.

Russia and China declare war on Murica.

World War III kicks off formally.

… That would be the logical sequence of events I think in the coming days.

(Reposting from a response to a friend regarding the question “what happens in the coming 30 days?” … maybe not quite that fast, but this all came to mind)

As a Pauline midActs dispensationalist and rightly dividing the ‘word of truth’ there is no prophecy being fulfilled today, these preachers misunderstand the word of God, there’s no Israel today either, it’s a man’s construct. Gods not dealing with his people of old (Abraham) today, not at this moment. Unfortunately these folks calling on Biblical verses to support their position on Israel have no clue what Gods doing today. Today was a mystery hid in God and it’s been that way for 1993 years hitherto. Not much longer. Today Gods focus is gentiles for a bit longer. God gets the blame for all man’s shit.

Romans 11:25 (KJV) For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

There are a few Biblical quotes that Netanyahu may not be taking into account, such as:

"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord."

(Matthew 23:37-39)

And this one:

"And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.

Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled."

(Luke 21:20-22)

Eschatological aspect deny the message of the New Testament....

which was foretold by several Old Testaments including Isaiah.

The neocon and other scions of the empire have no interest in the broader Bible.

'Eye for eye' was pagan law!
