It Can’t Be Much Longer!
One thing is certain. The view of possible war in the Middle East looks very different for those of us sitting here in Israel than it does for those watching from elsewhere. Ahmadinejad's upcoming visit to Lebanon next week has caused quite a stir in Israel. One thing we do know is that the south of Lebanon is nearly covered with Iranian flags to welcome Ahmadinejad. That's not a good sign.
We are also being informed that he has ordered Hezbollah to take over the Lebanese government [much as Hamas did in Gaza], once he has departed Lebanon. But the last attack from the Lebanon border was by Lebanese soldiers, not Hezbollah, and they killed one of our officers and wounded others. It is no surprise to us that Lebanon has, for all intents and purposes, already been taken over by Hezbollah. It is also well known that the Lebanese Army has been heavily infiltrated by Hezbollah and recruitment goes on daily in the military ranks.
Additionally, Syria has signed a pact with Iran agreeing to go to war if either country is attacked by Israel and they have made it known that it is them who are behind the takeover of Lebanon by Hezbollah.
I am aware that I am simplifying the situation somewhat so that it may be more easily understood. Nevertheless, I will say this -- the fire keeps getting hotter and the war drums are beating louder. However, that is a component of terrorism, isn't it?
We keep believing that war could begin any day now, yet somehow it doesn't. Don't misunderstand me. It will, and soon. And the world will be greatly changed as a result. The economy, communications, and global politics will change in such a way that for the average citizen it will be 'survival' only which will occupy their minds. Those who feel they can pull all things together again believing themselves to be God's will simply be setting the stage for the rise of antichrist and his 'Mark'.
No one can tell you how to prepare for that which is rapidly coming toward us. The one thing that seems to make sense is for you to do your very best to at least survive the first few months if at all possible. That will give you time to rationalise things and to regain your bearings. There are several articles on the front page of my website that you may find helpful; www.thegoldenreport.com
Oh sure, I know how this sounds more gloom and doom. Yet let me tell you something. It is not to my benefit that I tell you this, because once this war starts we will lose contact anyway. If all I was concerned with was trying to get you to support our efforts to save Jewish lives, I could come up with a much cleverer scenario. The truth however, is that your life and welfare are very important to us because you are our family in Yeshua!
For those who are believers in Yeshua (Jesus) there is no need to tell them of the importance of supporting Israel and blessing the "apple of God's eye". It all comes down to two possibilities. You can try to survive by relying on your own abilities, or you can do it God's way? Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. explains that very clearly.
That is not to say you should not do all you can for your loved ones. I-Tim 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
As for this Ministry we have been preparing to rescue and save as many Jewish lives as possible when the Jews of Europe begin to flee for their lives and have no other way to make it to Israel but by sea. God willing we will be there.
As the dollar continues to fall on world markets I am asking you again to pray about helping us to purchase the larger boat and to help with the many things of importance such as communications with the right people in Europe.
We are, at the moment, in the "valley of decision" in many ways. It is now time to place all our priorities in their proper position. As for me and my family, we have made our decision, and now depend entirely upon God.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this Ministry and your part in it.
Shalom, Jerry Golden
