Zion and Bam

The world is suffering in deep pain again... the apple of God's eye, Jerusalem, and her cities are being accosted and threatened with 50 (count 'em) terror threats.

One terrorized (by PLO & gangs) terrorist freak blew himself up and killed 4 beautiful souls in Tel Aviv...

And the horrible tempest in nearby Iran? Not many hours after threats of the genocide of Israel by leaders in Iran (Gen. Seyed Reza Pardis, Minister of Defense Ali Shamkhani and President Mohammed Khatami)... thousands of people are suffering in Bam, Iran.

In response to Israel's Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz on Israel Radio's Persian-language broadcast last week implying a possible pre-emptive attack Iranian nuclear plants, unwise leaders said horrible things, you see.

"We will strike Israel with all weapons at our disposal, if the Zionist regime ventures to do so..."

"Israel will be swept away."

It is pure speculation on my part and may be a small coincidence. And I shudder to make such a gruesome connection. But doesn't He seem to say as much in many passages of scripture?

Micah 4:11 "And now many nations are assembled against you that say, 'Let her be defiled, and let our eye see our desire upon Zion.' 12 But they know not the thoughts of Jehovah, neither understand they His counsel; for He has gathered them as the sheaves to the threshing-floor."

People don't realize how deep this "Zion" thing goes. This is a dream of the God of the Bible that He will fulfill.

The meaning of Zion is this - a place for perfect love on earth.

And God will clear the landing pad of all things that hinder love.

It's a serious thing to threaten Zion with genocide.
