Prophecy of Ezekiel

God told the prophet Ezekiel about our time..

Ezekiel 12:17
Moreover, the word of the LORD came to me saying,

Ezekiel 12:18
Son of man, eat your bread with trembling and drink your water with quivering and anxiety. 

Ezekiel 12:19
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 it.

Ezekiel 12:20
The inhabited cities will be laid waste and the land will be a desolation. So you will know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 12:21
Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

Ezekiel 12:22
Son of man, what is this proverb you people have concerning the land of Israel, saying, 'The days are long and every vision fails'?

Ezekiel 12:23
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."

Ezekiel 12:24
For there will no longer be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel.

Ezekiel 12:25
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.

Ezekiel 12:26
Furthermore, the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

Ezekiel 12:27
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."

Ezekiel 12:28
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

ScorpionA 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 my nature..."


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 safety".
Neville Chamberlain 1938

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 Fighters".


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.
