Moving-UP , Again
I enjoy JD and sure do hope this is "the time". He's very certain and I'm not so sure - simply because of the number of times in recent years that things have gotten so close to the explosion of the M. E. powder keg - and it simmers down or is not much more than a whimper.
Potential outcome: The US launches a very few cruise missiles to knock out some launchers. Syria, after all of its threats, does nothing. Everybody goes home and we're back at, "All quite on the Middle Eastern front". Remember N. Korea and the absolute CERTAINTY they were going to attack? That's just the most recent I can think of.
For me, I'm not getting all worked up over this. Sorry if I'm 'raining on anybody's parade' but that's just the result of 10+ years of seeing things heat up, we think this is "it", only to watch it settle down. And, after all, folks - that's exactly how birth pains go ... come and go, more intense each time (perhaps - but sometimes not - they only really increase in intensity when the time is truly near for delivery) but until it's time for the birth it's nothing but pre-birth contractions. Be ready, yes. Be watching, ABSOLUTELY. Sound the alarm, YES, YES. The birth pains are enough to get the woman to the hospital and be ready for it but...good idea to keep a good perspective on it, too.
Just my HO.
I'm with you, Andy! Your President just said he is going to do it after he gets Congressional approval. They don't return until 9/9 per Fox news. So, this gives Assad lots of time to prepare. As you suggest the big fear is the reaction of surrounding countries, Russia, etc. on Israel and us?
Each year around Rosh (Sept. 5-6 this year) I start to get lightheaded due to a belief of a possible Rapture date and these rumblings make it even more interesting. But like you, except I have been expecting the Rapture for 40 years, I have seen things seemingly line up before and God, in His infinite wisdom, said it was not time!
So, the bottom line is "we will know when we know"!
Anyway, I grew up with my dad excited about the rapture and it was something he mentioned often. We had a tradition of praying in the new year each year and I SO remember him so excitedly saying, "Perhaps...". It was contagious!

Several years ago, I never thought we'd see the year 2013 but here we are.

Pastor JD talks about where the situation in Syria appears to be heading, and perhaps more importantly why it matters.

Little Ricky... 7 months old....and I almost have my crawling technique down....I just have to get the floor to quit moving on me! Until then this basket keeps me steady
Great analogy, JackieJ!
Rosh starts today, at sundown in Israel and we will see if it is the "Day no man knows the day or Hour" or not? I am like you, it just seems that God is much more patient than I am and it will only happen when He (not me) is ready!

Pastor JD talks briefly about Syria then teaches through 1 Samuel 6:7-21.
Interestingly he mentions a news article that points out how Bible Prophecy Teachers, Hal L., etc. are all excited that they may be seeing the fulfillment of Isaiah 17. As JD says, that it is interesting that they don't seem to really discount it?
He also points out that the Preterists are admitting problems with this, also!

Pastor JD talks about the importance of rightly dividing 1st and 2nd Thessalonians in light of the situation in Syria, then ties the rapture of the church together with the communion table and how it paints a picture of the rapture on the canvass of typology.
