Media Spin On Russia/Georgia Conflict II

This video addresses the propaganda/spin job taking place on the Russia Georgia conflict in the mainstream media. Again, the vast majority of stories make the Russians appear to be the aggressors rather than the U.S./Isreali backed Georgian government.


BTW I still intend to pick up on my Revival series, I simply haven't had time at the end of summer. Now that school has started again I should be able to have a bit more free time to blog.

Bobby,

I sense your concern here.

I want to paste some verses and make a guess as to what might be happening right now.

Eze 38:4 And I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great host, all of them with buckler and shield, wielding swords.


and

Eze 38:16 You will come up against my people Israel, like a cloud covering the land. In the latter days I will bring you against my land, that the nations may know me, when through you, O Gog, I vindicate my holiness before their eyes.

and

Eze 38:21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Lord GOD. Every man's sword will be against his brother.
Eze 38:22 With pestilence and bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him, and I will rain upon him and his hordes and the many peoples who are with him torrential rains and hailstones, fire and sulfur.
Eze 38:23 So I will show my greatness and my holiness and make myself known in the eyes of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD.

When one weighs carefully what is being said, one should simply enter into a full time "rest", cease from their own works as Christ did His. He died. He rose again. He sits on High. We sit with Him at Our Heavenly Father's Righteous Right Hand!

These matters have been prophesied already as Ezekiel says here:

Eze 38:17 "Thus says the Lord GOD: Are you he of whom I spoke in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel, who in those days prophesied for years that I would bring you against them?
Eze 38:18 But on that day, the day that Gog shall come against the land of Israel, declares the Lord GOD, my wrath will be roused in my anger.


When you read this portion of the verses I have quoted and pasted above: [[...and make myself known in the eyes of many nations....] I quickly think of streaming videos.

The technology today to be in one place and watch in real time another happening in another place makes it possible to understand that verse 23 of Ezekiel 38!

It does appear and rightly so, that there is always two sides to every tale being told. We only sell what we want and we do not sell it honestly. Why?

Jeremiah has the answer in my opinion:

Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?


So what am I saying then? I am saying that God is actively accomplishing His Own Word of Prophesy, seeing to it that it is fulfilled!

This does not make for a warm and fuzzy feeling especially when your are newly married with three darling children and a bleak future in front of you!

Here is the warning we all should hear:

2Ti 3:1 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.


This Word speaks to the one, to the group, to the many, to the groups of many aligned against the one, the group, the many and the groups of many!

I do not see us going but One Way, forward by Faith in the finished Work of Christ. Do you see any other way? I see plenty of ways, but there is only One Way to go!

blessings upon you and Lisa and your children, three!

Will there be more? Four? :)

Hey Michael,

Good word. I personally have gone back and forth on how to view the prophesies in the Bible. It certainly does seem that there will be a Russian war with Israel, the Georgian conflict and US aggresion certainly is a tremor for the big quake to come. Certainly all things are in God's hands and nothing occurs without His decree, in this I take comfort with my little ones He has given me to care for.

What I really see here in the west is that the media has become controlled and is a tool of manipulation and propoganda. This is obvious with the Georgian conflict as they constantly portray Russia as the aggressor, even though the opposite has been the case. In short it is a form of psychological warfare being waged on the American people to support more US intervention around the world.

Yes Bobby, amen.

This is exactly why I:

Act 20:32 And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

What frightens me most is people actually are believers in what they read in newspapers, listen to on talk radio and watch on t.v. or at the movies!

No wonder we read this about that:

Rev 20:9 And they marched up over the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and consumed them,
Rev 20:10 and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Rev 20:11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them.
Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done.
Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done.
Rev 20:14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
Rev 20:15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Consider who ends up in Hell:::>

1. the beast
2. the "false" prophet
3. Satan
4. Death
5. Hades
6. mankind whose names are not written in the book of life.
