Israel is expanding its influence and control deeper into opposition-held southern Syria, according to multiple sources in the area. After failed attempts to ensure its interests were safeguarded by the major players in the war next door, Israel is pushing to implement the second phase of its “safe-zone” project — an attempt to expand a buffer ranging out from the occupied Golan Heights deeper into the southern Syrian provinces of Quneitra and Daraa. The safe zone expansion marks a move toward deeper Israeli involvement in Syria’s civil war.

By the Church simply reducing everything the Lord expects of us to the word “ #love” we have various #denominations endorsing homosexuality, gay marriage, abortion, and polygamy at the same time it wants to ban the execution of murderers, forgive sex crimes upon children, and declare that any god that is worshipped is really just Jesus. Why? Because the supposed “law of love” effectively invalidates all of the Lord’s other commands. We cannot be against #homosexuality because that is not loving. We cannot stand in the way of two males getting married to one another because they love each other & of course God loves love. We cannot execute a killer because instead we should love him & no loving god would ever take a human life as retribution. And we cannot stand with #Israel, and necessarily against its enemy the #Palestinians, because that is not evenhanded and thus is not loving.••
How could the church have gone so far off track? How could #Believers think such strange thoughts?••
Just as with Jephthah too much of Christianity has mixed the ways of Greek philosophy & intellectualism & various cultural traditions with the Lord’s ways in hopes of getting along with the world. And as society and the church grows increasingly accepting of these things, we all just become numb to them and they become the #newnormal so we declare to ourselves that these things must be good because they seem so comfortable to us. To do otherwise would have us crossways with many of our friends, some of our family, and certainly at times with our own church or synagogue. After all who wants to be #labeled as belonging to a cult, or as a heretic, or as a fundamentalist intolerant unintelligent hater?••
Well that’s the #choice YHWH lays out to #Israel: obey My every #command, regardless of the social consequences, so that I can bless you; OR, commit #idolatry by adopting some of the ways of the world and thus perverting the true worship of the true #God in order to blend in with your neighbors and have a form of peace. #chooselife#choosewhomyouwillserve#YHWH#meandmyhouse#reallove#reallovecamefromheaven#yeshua#jesus#GoHomeAndReadYourBible#GoHomeAndReadYourBible#cult#heretic
На самом деле, зимы в нашем русском понимании , в Израиле нет, и я этим никого не удивлю. Но тут нет и осени! Хотя может это только мои ощущения, и кто-то со мной не согласится. Просто всегда отмечала смену времени года по запаху воздуха- у каждого свой. Но самый волнительный из них, опьяняющий и вызывающий какое-то щемящее чувство внутри- это запах весны!И в этот раз запах весны я поймала с приходом калердарной зимы😍 Вместо осени было лето, сейчас весна, а потом снова лето! Осень удалось вдохнуть , когда прилетала домой в конце сентября, ну а зима меня никогда особо не радовала, вот по ней не скучаю) А у кого какое любимое время года??? Многие ведь любят зимушку и снежок?
