Reflecting this morning.
How I have longed for His appearing in 2015.
2 Timothy 4:7-8
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.
Paul reminds me I'm not the only one.
Still I am grateful that God continues to carry me through many storms and trials and His patience, love, grace, mercy and long suffering is way beyond mine. #2Peter3:9
In all the world terror and tragedy I see rivers of warning, urgency, grace, love and entreating.
He is coming soon.

Breaking news that a Russian rescue helicopter was also shot down as it tried to retrieve the pilots.
Putin is furious and in lengthy comments while in a meeting with the King of Jordan is saying NATO and Turkey are offering support to ISIS. He has also blown the cover off of apparent oil deliveries from ISIS to Turkey in exchange for funds.
In related news, Putin's ordering of Dresden-style bombings of Nawa, Sheikh Maskin, and Raqqa is likely in response to the downing of the commercial airliner over the Sinai.
Please understand the seriousness of all this: this is the first time NATO has shot down a Russian jet since the 1950s. This is undoubtedly the most tense moment since at least the collapse of the Soviet Union in '91.
U.N. Security Council passes unanimous resolution just days ago calling on ALL NATIONS to join fight against ISIS in Syria. Understand that according to the borders God set for Israel in the Bible, most of Lebanon and a large portion of Syria (including the Golan Heights) are part of what God considers to be Israel. Trust me when I say that God's vote counts the most. So when you hear ALL NATIONS are being invited to join the war against ISIS, this is technically Northern Israel. They are setting their feet on God's covenant land. This resolution is not merely asking for financial support and diplomatic support, but actual, direct military involvement:
"The council resolution 'calls upon member states that have the capacity to do so to take all necessary measures ... on the territory under the control of Isil [Isis]' "
As Greg pointed out in the "Escalation" post below, we are on the brink of a shooting war between Russia and NATO after Turkey shoots down a Russian fighter jet. Breaking news that Putin is livid and just ordered the Turkish embassy in Moscow to be evacuated within 24 hours.
Russia is flattening ENTIRE CITIES in Syria: Nawa and Sheikh Maskin, and now they've begun on Raqqa with 75 sorties and Kalibr cruise missiles... these bombings are on the level of Dresden in 1945
U.S. bombers destroy 283 oil trucks in Syria
Actual Russian boots on the ground... engaging in combat
Israel bombing runs over the Gaza Strip just hours ago
2015 mass animal deaths absolutely off-the-chart... unlike anything since the Global Flood... See Hosea 4:1-3
United Nations set to pass a slew of anti-Israel resolutions (either yesterday or next Monday)
Third Intifada stabbing violence in Israel is surging
As mentioned before many nations of the world have converged on Syria. Many militarily, others with supplies and funding:
- United Kingdom
- North Korea
- Saudi Arabia
- United Arab Emirates
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

And now this utterly shocking, breaking news from Debka, that Russia has LEVELED a city of 60,000 mere miles from the Golan border and is in the process of LEVELING another city of 25,000:
"Nawa is a city of 60,000 residents in southern Syria, west of the city of Darra and 15 kilometers east of the Israel-Syria border on the Golan. That is to say, Nawa was a Syrian city, but it does not exist anymore.
DEBKAfile's military sources report that from Saturday until Monday, November 21-23, Russian bombers wiped the city off the face of the earth. All that remains are ruins. The streets are full of bodies of people and animals that nobody bothers to remove. Almost nobody is left in the abandoned city, as those who were able to flee have done so, and the unknown number of people who remained in Nawa were killled in the Russian bombing. Another Syrian city that the Russian air force has been systematically destroying during the last few days is Sheikh Maskin, which has 25,000 residents and is located near the border with Israel.
At the pace that the Russians are operating, it can be assumed that they will finish wiping the city off the face of the earth by Tuesday or Wednesday.
Syrian President Bashar Assad said Sunday in a Chinese television interview that the country's situation changed after the Russian air force joined the war, and that the Syrian military is now advancing on all fronts. It was a diplomatic way of referring to the total destruction of cities and settlements being carried out by the Russian air force. Instead of battles, there is total destruction, with no way of measuring the human cost that the civillian population is paying. And nobody in Israel or anywhere else in the world is speaking up about it."
What if Russia is the nation that fulfills Isaiah 17, and Ezekiel 38 follows quickly after?
Another report from today gave an inside look at Putin's War Room, which is buried somewhere deep under Moscow. This guy is personally overseeing the Syrian operation. Below you can see Putin near the middle of the second level, of the three-floored War Room:
I keep saying this contraction isn't over. Not by a long shot. Keep looking up brothers and sisters.
