With Crimean Crisis, Haaretz ‘Gets It’ June 15, 2014Posted by stevekerp in End Times, Harbingers, Uncategorized.
What follows is not from some fundamental Christian web site or kook blog or anything. It’s from the mainstream Haaretz Jewish web site, They are the ones suggesting that the events in Crimea and Ukraine are explicit Biblical (Book of Ezekiel – their Bible is our Old Testament) harbingers. THEY are the ones suggesting that the Messiah is coming very, very soon!
If you’re a Christian, the fun is just beginning: An army of “200 million” men will come from the East, according the Book of Revelations [sic], and there’s only one country that can raise such an army. Then, in quick succession but in a sequence that is disputed by scholars, the End Times really get going: Armageddon, Desolation, Tribulation, Rapture, Redemption, the Second Coming – the works.
Jews, by the way, make do with just the war of Gog and Magog, after which messianic days are here and “swords are beaten into ploughshares” etc. Nonetheless, Christians aren’t the only ones who are getting excited about the standoff in Eastern Europe. According to a report catching fire over the weekend in the haredi press in Israel, the Gaon Rabbi Moshe Shternbuch told his disciples this week that the times of the Messiah are upon us. And who is the source for his amazing analysis? None other than one of the top Jewish sages of all time, the Vilna Gaon himself, the Gra, “the genius of Vilnius”, the famously harsh critic of Hasidic Judaism.

So, for those of you who may think those of us urging preparation for the return of Christ have spent too much time in the eschatosphere and not enough time in the real world …. well, it looks like Chemi Shalev and maybe a few others in Israel have joined us.
Jesus is coming soon! YOU will see Him face-to-face! Are You Ready??
