Just felt led to post a quick word of encouragement to those brothers and sisters who may be feeling weary today of doing good. God sees it all. He knows the role every person plays in every situation, including the motivation of the heart. He sees when you try to do the right thing to honor Him, even when it appears that no one else around you does and things do not work out they way you had hoped they would. He sees the ridicule and mocking you suffer as you stand for righteousness, often from those within your own family or co-workers at your place of employment. The world mocked Noah as well, UNTIL it started to rain, and then they came to the tragic, horrific realization that Noah was telling the truth and the window of opportunity to escape had slammed eternally shut. Weary soul, hear the Word of the Lord from Galatians 6:7-10
"7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. 9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith."
Press on, weary one, for He who keeps you neither slumbers nor sleeps. And He is faithful to bear you up until you reach the finish line. My eyesight is not as good as it use to be, but it sure looks like that finish line is not much further now. Maranatha, Lord Jesus!!! Strengthen Your weary ones with Your Word of Promise, Abba. We are watching, and praying, and longing to be with You. Amen.
bernie: EW, I don't know anything on prophecies from Isaiah 23. I think I recall Bill Salus mentioning Lebanon being part of what he considers a prophetic war out of Psalm 83. Other prophecy teachers don't believe as he does,some saying it already been fulfilled.

bernie: I believe Amir and possibly others believe Psalm 83 was fulfilled in Israel's war for independence, or in 67/73. I don't have an opinion either way, because I haven't read or studied it.

bernie: I do think it's possible that if France, the EU, or the UN try to go in and disarm Hezbollah it could start WWIII.
