God told the prophet Ezekiel about our time..
Moreover, the word of the LORD came to me saying,
Son of man, eat your bread with trembling and drink your water with quivering and anxiety.
Then say to the people of the land, 'Thus says the Lord GOD concerning the inhabitants of
Jerusalem in the land of Israel, "They will eat their bread with anxiety and drink their water with
horror, because their land will be stripped of its fullness on account of the
VIOLENCE of all who live in
The inhabited cities will be laid waste and the land will be a desolation. So you will know that I am
Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
Son of man, what is this proverb you people have concerning the land of Israel, saying, 'The days
are long and every vision fails'?
Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD, I will make this proverb cease so that they will no longer use it as a proverb in
Israel. But tell
them, "The days draw near as well as the fulfillment of every vision."
For there will no longer be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel.
For I the LORD will speak, and whatever word I speak will be performed. It will no longer be
delayed, for in your days, O rebellious house, I will speak the word and perform
it, declares the Lord GOD.
Furthermore, the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
Son of man, behold, the house of Israel is saying, "The vision that he sees is for many years from
now, and the prophecies are about the distant future."
Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD, "None of My words will be delayed any
longer. Whatever word I speak will be performed," declares the Lord GOD.
The Scorpion and the Frog
A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the
scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The frog asks,
"How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion says, "Because
if I do, I will die too."
|The frog is satisfied, and they set out,
but in midstream, the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset
of paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown, but has
just enough time to gasp "Why?" Replies the scorpion: "Its
Let us learn from the story, and not aid the scorpion.
This story is from Aesop's fables, but it rings true
today. Evil people cannot resist their nature, and if you try to help them
they will destroy you, even if it means their death.
For example, in WWII, Neville Chamberlain
tried to gain safety by giving Adolph Hitler more land. Hitler had already
annexed Austria, and he now demanded the territories of Czechoslovakia.
"Out of this nettle, danger, we pluck the flower

We all know what happened. Hitler continued
invading countries and killing people. You do NOT give in to bullies.
Appeasement is a recipe for disaster.
Similarly, The Oslo "Peace"
Accords is an attempt to trade land for peace. Since the accords were
signed in 1993, 643 Jews have been slaughtered by Arafat's "Freedom
There are several world leaders that wish to destroy
Israel, even if it means their own destruction.
Presently, Iran is building nuclear weapons to use
against Israel. According to Iran's former President Rafsanjani a single nuclear bomb can destroy
the whole state of Israel.
Arafat, the self proclaimed leader of the Palestinians, has suicide universities where students train to commit suicide
bombings. He also has a museum that depicts the gory horror of the
Sbarro Pizza Parlor bombing that occurred in Jerusalem on August 9, 2001.
There are still people like the frog, who feel that
helping scorpions like Arafat by giving him money, arms, and land will
actually prevent the scorpion from stinging. They have not learned
that scorpions sting because that is their nature.
