"Bro Randy, we live in exciting times!"

Hello, John and Doves,
Bro Randy, we live in exciting times!
I've been  mulling over the prophesied imminent destruction of Damascus, and I suspect that God will do a work that only He can do.
Somebody in Syria will push "THE BUTTON."
The rocket motors of the weapons delivery system will duly start up, and the nukes at some point will be duly primed.  And yet, the missiles will be CLAMPED in their silos.  There will be much ado to no avail.  The cancel code will be locked out (probably due to CAPS LOCK being on--LOL).   The city of Damascus will receive a 30-second notice to take cover from the Syrians own bombs!!!  That's my theory, and I'm sticking with it.
It is written,
    So let sudden ruin come upon them! Let them be caught in the trap they set for me! Let them be destroyed in the pit they dug for me.
Psalm 35:8  NLT
Assad knows nothing about Unsmurfy's Law:  Anything that can be unsmurfy, given time and territory, will be unsmurfy.
In other words,
    7Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. 8Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. 9So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. 10Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.
Galatians 6:7-10  NLT

"So, 2 weeks from Rosh Hashanah........"

boy........I'm hopeful, but can't bring myself to be "expectant" ......
This time of year, especially this year, I am very hopeful for the Rapture.
Why Rosh Hashanah......why the Fall Jewish Feasts?
Many of us believe Jesus will fulfill the Fall Feasts with His 2nd Coming-starting with the Rapture, just as He fulfilled the Spring Feasts with His 1st coming.    And, many of us are looking to Rosh Hashanah for the Rapture.
Why THIS year?
1) It was just about 11 months ago Netenyahu said "the Red Line for Iran would be the summer of 2013".
ah, but NO action yet.....just a lot of words.  Even the Obama Red Line for Syria has been crossed, but he hasn't done a thing about it as yet......  and I don't expect him to do so.
And yet.......Israel MUST DO SOMETHING SOON.  Yes?? !!
2) the Blood Moon Tetrads start Next year, 2014, on Passover.   IF they signal "big things" or bad things" for Israel in the coming time, then could the Rapture proceed that, and be THIS Fall....THIS Rosh Hashanah?
3) The John Kerry Peace Treaty efforts for Israel and the Palestinians   (and when they cry Peace and Safety!!)  is IN PLAY right now.  Will THIS FINALLY BE "THE" Peace Treaty that ushers in the Tribulation?  IF SO, then AGAIN, could the Rapture proceed that, and be THIS FALL....THIS ROSH Hashanah?
MANY, MANY People believe we are IN the "last......of the last days."
Even people with different religious beliefs, like the Muslims, are looking for the SOON return of THEIR guy......the 12th Imam...the Mahdi.  And so are the Budists.......and
Even people who have a Post Trib view believe the time is so very, very near for the start of the Tribulation.
Case in point.....
Irwin Baxter has a TV show on End Times, and he is ADAMANT that THIS PEACE TREATY is THE ONE that will be signed....... as stated by John Kerry........in 9 months........approximately at the end of April 2014......possibly even DURING PASSOVER!!!   So,
He believes the Tribulation WILL BEGIN around Passover 2014, right after the Pace Treaty is signed.
And if that is the case.....and it very well could be.....then a PRE TRIB RAPTURE, could very well be THIS ROSH HASHANAH!!  (If we adhere to the Jewish Feast Fulfillment, and the Fall Feasts!)  Or, could the Rapture be ANY TIME between now........and the signing of the Treaty in the Spring?  Or during the Spring Feasts?
My point it......could the Rapture be THAT NEAR Because the FINAL Peace Treaty could be THAT NEAR...?
Or.....that the war for Israel to "save her life" is THAT NEAR, with Iran......or Syria......or ALL of her neighbors who hate her so much????
