David’s Comment: Beware of Desensitising Gradualism
1 John 5:19 The whole world lies under the influence of the evil one
Recently, Josie and I were watching an interview with Christian doctor who had been performing Abortions for many years. He had ceased that murderous practice when he was truly Born-again and realised that aborting the lives of unborn human beings was indeed nothing less than cold blooded murder and one of the worst abominations in the eyes if the One who created these babies. When asked how a doctor who had taken the Hippocratic Oath and trained for 5 years to save the lives of fellow human beings could then do the very opposite and destroy these little ones before they even had a chance to take their first breath, he said that the first time he performed an abortion and saw that it was a tiny human body that he had ripped out of the warmth and protection of its mother’s womb, he was deeply affected. The second time was not so shocking, and with each abortion he performed it became less shocking, finally having no emotional affect on him at all – until he was Born-again and the Holy Spirit opened his eyes to the truth. The word the doctor used to describe what happened to him was desensitisation. With each baby that he murdered, he became more and more desensitised to the blood and body parts that he was extracting from the mother’s womb. The reason why I have used such a horrible example to introduce my comment this week, is that almost the entire world, including much of the Body of Messiah is becoming increasingly desensitised to many issues that I believe are very serious in the eyes of the LORD. The other word that I used in the title, gradualism, carries almost exactly the same meaning, Over time those who serve the purposes of Lucifer and have control over our nations, purposefully bring in their wicked plans with gradual changes so that most people do not object as they would if they tried to introduce their end plan at the beginning.
This is called gradualism and works by slow desensitisation to the reality of what is going on around us. An example I have used is that of placing a frog in a pan of warm water. If you turn up the heat gradually, the frog will boil to death, without realising what was happening to him. And that is what has been happening in much of the world since 1967. I believe that at the end of the Six Day War in June 1967, the prophetic time clock that had stopped ticking when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD, began to tick again. Which means we are on the final countdown to the return of Yeshua and the restablishment of YHVH’s Kingdom on the Earth. That being the case, we should not be surprised or shocked that the Kingdom of Darkness has been at work over the same countdown period, carrying out its plan of gradually desensitising as many people as possible to rebel against the LORD, with the ultimate goal of taking as many of GOD’s children into eternal separation from our Creator and Heavenly Father. There are many areas in which this desensitising gradualism is taking place, and just the like the frog in the water pot, the vast majority of human beings have no idea that it is happening to them. The following are the most serious ones ………….
Abortion: Over the last 50 years the murder of unborn children has changed from something so horrific and shameful that most women would never even consider it, or admit it if they did such a thing, to being an acceptable form of birth control, and considered an absolute right for the mother of the baby to choose. Faith: 50 years ago most Western nations pridefully described themselves as being Christian nations. Gradually over the years, evil has become good and good is now seen as evil. Bible beieving Christians are considered the greatest threat to society, and we can be sent to prison for publicly quoting certain Bible verses which are now classed as “hate literature”
Homosexuality: Is one of the few sins that YHVH calls an abomination. And until 1967 that is how the Western world saw it, with sexual acts between men being illegal and those found guilty were sent to prison. But since 1967, the closet door has been opened and gradually more and more of them. many of them being high profile people of influence have come out of the closet. The Kingdom of Darkness has used the media and entertainment industry to exploit the influence of these people, to manipulate the thinking of the general public, to accept the abominable as normal and publicly acceptable behaviour. The gradual conditioning by the evil lies of the LGBT has brought us to the place where parents are not supposed to influence the gender orientation of their own children.
General Immorality: Just after the 6 Day War in 1967, the music changed as the Beatles were influenced by Bob Dylan and got into drugs and Hinduism. There was a very strong anointing on their music that influenced millions of young people around the world and the pop music industry began to lead the younger generations away from GOD. Hollywood and the TV industry were also used by the Devil to gradually erode the Bible based faith and morals, bringing the world back to the Medo-Persian Empire’s motto of “if it feels good, do it,” which is exactly what the Satanic “Bible’ says “Do thou what thou wilt.” The Bible of YVHV says “Obey the LORD your GOD and follow His commandments.” As a result of this gradual eroding of faith and morals, most of the world is out of control and getting moreso by the week, if not by the day.
News Media, Advertising & Entertainment: These three sectors of international stage are the ones who are guilty of being behind above 4 areas where the World has been gradually desensitised. These three are guilty of brain-washing and mental manipulation through lies, deceptive information and forcing their audiences to come around to their anti-God, unrighteous standards of maorality. The news media always takes the side and advances unBiblical practices. Just watch the reporter’s grinning faces and listen to their positive rhetoric when reporting on pro LGBT and Pro Abortion events, and observe the difference when reporting on Pro Life and anti Same Sex events. With their facial expressions they are sutterly trying to influence the way the general public thinks and feels about these issues. Their job is to inform us, and not to attempt to form our opinions. And they do it very sly …… with gradual desensitisation.
I pray that this comment will be a wake up call to those who have not been aware. And those who are aware, please feel free to pass this comment on to everyone you are in touch with. The regular people of the world need to know we are manipulated and controlled, lied to and stolen from – right in front of our eyes, and most have no idea that it is happening.
Lets blow the shofar and wake them up to the fact that they are being lied to and deceived every day. The LORD bless you as you bless Israel by standing in defense of her right to exist on all of the land given to the Jewish people by the GOD of Israel. Please pray that all Israel will turn back to their GOD. Do not be silent, but share this with your fellow Christians, share it with your pastors, and with anyone you have a chance to speak to. Lets also pray for a breakthrough to the Muslims, and please remember to pray Divine protection for all of the soldiers in the IDF.
Shabbat Shalom ….. David & Josie h
This Week’s News Items
1. Winds of War are Blowing Stronger Israel News Report 29 June
Military intelligence (AMAN) is warning that Iran, Hizballah and an Iraqi Shiite militia are getting ready to stage an attack on Israel has just landed with a thud on the desk of Prime Minister / Defence Minister Netanyahu. The rationale? Iran?s sabotage attacks on Gulf oil targets and the downing of a US drone on June 20 failed to attain the objective of forcing President Donald Trump to ease up on sanctions. To the contrary, the president intensified them. According to AMAN?s experts, Tehran realises it must up the pressure – either by directly hitting an American target in the region and causing the loss of American lives, or by going for a key Washington strategic target for dramatic impact. Israel appears to have been chosen for this role. IDF intelligence watchers report that Iran and its Lebanese and Iraqi proxies are busy organising a surprise attack, likely to seize a location, which would leave Israel with no option other than to launch a broad military operation that would soon descend into a full-scale offensive against Iranian forces in Syria and Hizballah. Pray that when this inevitable begins, that the GOD of Israel will immediately send His angelic army to protect Israel and destroy her enemies as He has promised to do.
2. Book Bomb Defused and Israel / Hamas Confirm Cease-Fire INN News 28 June
A police sapper neutralized an explosive device attached to balloons that landed in an agricultural field in the Eshkol Regional Council on Friday. The explosive device was hidden in what looked like a book with the Hebrew inscription “Love Stella.” “The attached suspicious object was a book with a Hebrew inscription. The book was booby-trapped – the assumption is that the goal was that the book would detach from the balloons and appear like an innocent-looking Hebrew book,” an Eshkol Council spokesperson said. “Therefore, it is very important – in any case of identifying any suspicious object even if it’s not attached to balloons – don’t touch. You should move away and report it to the local IDF security coordinator,” the spokesperson stressed. Two fires broke out this morning in the Gaza perimeter, in grazing land on the kibbutz in Shaar Hanegev and in the Be’eri Forest. The fires were apparently caused by incendiary balloons. Earlier, an Israeli official confirmed that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had reached an agreement with Hamas in which the organization would stop firing incendiary balloons and curb the demonstrations on the Gaza border fence. Israel, in return, will increase the fishing area to 15 miles and resume the flow of fuel into the Gaza Strip. Pray that this will not be the same of Hamas ceasefire where Israel ceases and Hamas keeps firing
3. Israel Strikes at More Iranian Weapons in Syria Times of Israel News July 1st
At least 15 people were killed, including six civilians, during strikes on Iranian targets in Syria in the predawn hours of Monday morning, according to a Syrian war monitor. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based group, said it was not immediately clear if the six civilians, among them an infant, were killed by the attacks themselves, which were attributed to Israel, by Syria?s anti-aircraft fire, or by some other secondary explosion. The other nine people killed were said to have been members of pro-Iranian militias, some of them foreign nationals. The Observatory said Israel launched strikes both from the air and sea, targeting Iranian-linked bases near Homs and at least 10 targets near Damascus, including a base where Iran?s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps forces are headquartered and a weapons research center. Israel did not comment on the attack ? one of the most extensive series of strikes in several months, coming less than a week after a trilateral summit with Russia and the United States concerning Tehran?s activities and military presence in the region. News sites in the country reported at least 50 people injured in the strikes. Pray that Israel is able to destroy every shipment of Iran supplied weapons into Syria, Lebanon and Gaza
4. Iran Passes Nuclear Deal Limits Times of Israel News July 1st
Blue and White party chairman ? and de facto opposition leader ? MK Benny Gantz says Iran?s breaking of the uranium enrichment limit set by the 2015 nuclear deal leaves Israelis ?united? against the threat of a nuclear-armed regime in Tehran. ?Israel is united and determined in the face of the Iranian threat,? the former IDF chief of staff says in a statement. ?Today it?s clear that Iran isn?t an Israeli problem, but an international problem. I call for a broad international alliance against Iran, stiffening of the sanctions and joint preparations for the possibility that Iran continues on its present course. At the same time, I?m certain and confident that the IDF and Israel?s security services are preparing constantly for any possible eventuality in that theater, and are capable of giving the political leadership the needed solutions to the threat to ensure that Iran never achieves a nuclear weapon.? He adds: ?In this election season, it?s important to emphasize that the Iranian threat is above all politics. We will give our backing and help to any decision the government takes to strengthen Israel?s security.? Iran?s semi-official Fars news agency reported earlier today that the country?s stockpile of 3.67 percent enriched uranium has now passed the 300-kilogram limit set by the 2015 nuclear deal. Pray that the influential nations place pressure on Iran to stop their threats against Israel and cease their nuclear weapons program
5. Israel Has More Proof that Iran Lied United With Israel News July 1st Prime Minister Netanyahu said on Monday that Israel would ?soon unveil more proof that Iran was lying all the time? about its nuclear program. The Israeli prime minister has been an outspoken critic of Iran and has long accused Tehran of seeking to develop nuclear weapons. Iran admitted on Monday it had exceeded the limit set on its low-enriched uranium stockpiles by a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, claiming it was its first major departure from the agreement since Washington withdrew from it last year. While Iran has insisted that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, Israeli agents last year smuggled out of Iran tens of thousands of documents and other evidence related to Iran?s illegal nuclear program. The secret Iranian nuclear archive proved that Tehran had lied about pursuing nuclear arms, PM Netanyahu maintained in a televised address in English at the time. He is now is calling upon European countries to ?stand by their commitments? to impose sanctions against Iran if it violates the nuclear agreement reached with world powers in 2015. Pray that all nations will put pressure on Iran to stop their nuclear weapons program
6. IDF Forces Arrest 22 Terror Suspects World Israel News July 2
Israeli forces on Monday night carried out counter-terrorism operations throughout Judea and Samaria during which they arrested 22 Arabs. The suspects were taken for questioning related to their involvement in terror activities and violent disturbances against civilians and security forces. The forces also searched for weapons in the Ephraim Region and seized a Carlo submachine gun. While Arab communities in Judea and Samaria are ostensibly governed by the Palestinian Authority, the Gaza-based Hamas terror organization has made inroads as of late in the area, attempting to set up cells to perpetrate attacks on Israeli civilians. Such attacks have taken their toll on Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria, with Palestinians using drive-by shootings, car-rammings, and stabbings to murder Israelis in public locations like bus stops and ride-sharing posts. Last year an American born Israeli Ari Fuld was stabbed to death at a commercial complex where Jews and Arabs shop and work alongside one another. After Fuld was stabbed in the back, he chased down his assailant, removed his firearm from his waist, and released several rounds before collapsing. Fuld later died from his wounds, leaving a grieving wife and four children behind. Pray that all terror groups will be apprehended and prevented from being involved any further terror acts.
7. Second ‘Son of Hamas’ Defects United With Israel News July 4th
I was raised in Hamas, I worked for Hamas, but when I was exposed to corruption, I left. I cut off ties,? said Suheib Yousef, son of the terror group?s co-founder. Suheib Yousef, son of Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef, has fled from the terrorist organization to an undisclosed Asian country. On Wednesday, Israel?s Channel 12 television aired an interview with Israeli-Palestinian affairs correspondent Ohad Hemo that exposed a long list of reasons for his disenchantment with Hamas. Suheib Yousef said that the corruption among Hamas members in Turkey was a catalyst for his leaving his post in Hamas?s ?political branch? in the country and for giving the interview. He claimed that this branch of Hamas was actually a spy unit with advanced listening equipment that taps Palestinian Authority leaders in Ramallah as well as Israel and other Arab countries. ?Hamas operates security and military operations on Turkish soil under the cover of civil society,? he said. ?They have security centers from which they operate advanced listening equipment, to listen to people and (Palestinian) leaders in Ramallah.? Yousef added that Hamas?s intelligence gathering ?isn?t for the Palestinian cause,? but rather sold ?to Iran in return for financial assistance.? The payouts go through banks in Turkey. Hamas in Turkey is also used to conscript people, including children, to commit terror attacks against Israelis, he said. Yousef clarified that Hamas has no desire to improve the lives of Palestinian people or to establish a Palestinian state. Suheib is the second son of the Hamas co-founder to desert the terrorist organization. His older brother, Mosab became an undercover agent the Shin Bet, Israel?s internal security service, from 1997 to 2007. Pray that more Hamas terrorists will see the light and defect and expose the real ways of the Hamas organisation. Also pray protection over the 2 brothers.
