United States and Qatar to provide millions for Palestinian recovery
Aid packages to "humanitarian partners," such as NGOs, will provide emergency shelter, food and health care.

The United States will provide over $360 million to support Palestinian recovery efforts following the 11-day conflict between Israel and Hamas that saw much damage to Gaza, Secretary of State Antony Blinken further detailed in a statement on Wednesday. The aid package would include nearly $33 million to UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees and their descendants, as well as $5.5 to "humanitarian partners," such as NGOs, to provide emergency shelter, food and health care.

In addition, the State Department and USAID plan to provide $75 million in development and economic assistance for the West Bank and Gaza and $10 million to programs to support "reconciliation work to reduce tension and violence." That is in addition to over $250 million in aid the US announced earlier this year. The Taylor Force Act blocks US assistance "that directly benefits the Palestinian Authority" as long as it continues to pay salaries to terrorists and their families. However, the law does not block funding to UNRWA or civil society organizations, and makes exception for US funding for the east Jerusalem Hospital Network, wastewater projects or vaccinations for children.

First, I believe 112 million of the 360 was already earmarked for the palestinians from congress but now I see it was already 250 mlion... geeze..(annual waste of our money)

But to believe Blinken that the money will not go to Hamas is laughable. Hamas runs Gaza now, like Hebollah runs Lebanon. It's pretty ear even from So. California and our smog, giving money to "gaza" is giving the money to Hamas.. lets just even say president Abbas remains in control of gaza and he is in fact in control of incoming monies "to rebuild".. (or build back better lol).. he's gonna have to pay the "Infamous El Guapo" (Hamas) a heavy tax to "be in control". Either by fraud or strong arm Hamas will get paid our money to attack Israel again.

"Hefe.. would you say I have a plethora of pinatas?"

So...the US govt supports the terrorist, which in my mind is equal to supporting Israel's enemies. Is this not cursing Israel?

I think many American Christians pray for Israel. I have seen a good bit of support on my Face book page. Is this considered blessing Israel?

I fear the Lord and believe His word. I fear our nation will be cursed for this support of Hamas. We seem to be getting more mired in sin every day.

Any one with thoughts on this???

Look at today's Daily News menu item that reports Hamas digging up a water pipe in Gaza for use AS A ROCKET.
Our present embarrassment of an administration is in denial about everything. It does not report, it spins, lies, and floods the airways with fairy tales.
Listen to any news organization you like - you will see the results in America of our failure to bless Israel. Daily.
Our prayers for Israel count in our favor. Most of the media doesn't cover prayer at all. Fortunately it is God who gives "ratings" to prayer.

Biden also sold missler to Israel, despite opposition of his party. https://www.raptureforums.com/forum...israel-despite-progressive-opposition.179585/
It appears to me that Biden in his little mind, is trying to walk on the fence, much to the disappointment of the radical far left.
But despite what we see America doing or not doing right now, we know it's not in Bible prophecy, which is the fact that disturbs me the most.
I pray very often that we are taken out of here before America goes down. I was just telling my husband last night that I would rather lose a limb or even die than be here for this. No matter the mode or level of suffering to endure....its just too sad to witness.

The USA is basically funding Hama's war against Israel :(
If some think they are not funding it that's fine, but they are providing a lot of support to that effort in other ways than even money; most importantly with the endorsement of allowed continuance as things are with little to no consequences..........but yet again the likelihood of $ support. It's mind blowing the way this is going.

I think you will see that prayer answered.

My take on things re America and how things play out over the next few is this

America achieved irrelevance as far as Biblical prophecy goes with the election of Biden. Nothing else needs to happen. They can't help Israel (who must remain alone for both Damascus in Is 17, and Ezek 38). They won't oppose Russia (or anyone right now under Biden).

So that was a major necessary component to ensure that the young lions of Tarshish only whimper a question to Russia in Gog Magog.

Done.

One of the things I've expected to see is an economic recovery of sorts from Covid (or whatever plague is next on the horizon should the Lord tarry). The conditions Paul speaks of and Jesus in Luke 17 are ones where the expectation and hope is peace and safety (then sudden destruction) along with marrying, buying, selling etc on the eve of destruction as the true church is lifted safely up out of the way.

Chuck Missler made a VERY important point when he said that Luke 17 was not Luke 21.

2 separate prophecies, 2 separate time frames when Jesus is explaining the end times. Luke 17: 26-29 refer to the righteous being lifted up and out of destruction that comes from God's outpouring of wrath. V 30 onwards are likely referring to the end of the Trib but v 26-29 are almost like they are in parenthesis. Bookends of the Tribulation period.

I may be wrong on that so take me with a large grain of salt there BUT I think we should see an economic recovery of sorts, the economy limping along. For that America still has to be functional because the American petrodollar is the world's reserve currency.

Paul's point seems to me to be that they are talking peace and safety till the Rapture, then bang we go up, the Restrainer is removed and all hell breaks loose for the earth dwellers. He makes a great distinction that we are not deceived like the world, -- they are expecting peace and safety or security, then it all goes sideways. We apparently see the day approaching, and I would venture to say that we do. We just can't put a date on it.

it all lines up with the conditions of the economy limping along, America being too weak to do anything but question Russia's intention invading in the Ezek 38 Gog Magog war.

I am strongly inclined to think that the pin that pops the ever expanding debt balloon hanging over all of us is none other than the Rapture exploding in on the precarious fiscal situation in the world's Reserve currency-- the American petrodollar!

That debt balloon got massively larger from Covid stimulus funds -- which were simply printed currency--it's why prices are rising so fast now-- its a consequence of printing money, the currency devalues and that is happening all over the world.

I would venture to say that the economy will limp along, with the world breathing a sigh of relief after Covid and the post Covid spending inflation, thinking they dodged another bullet. Till the Rapture.

Paul's use of contrast between peace and safety chatter of the unsaved masses of humanity versus the sudden destruction that comes about as the Restrainer is removed shows another side-- war.

It could very possibly be the Ezek 38 event or Damascus as we go up. This would provide a double whammy to the economy. Not just the implosion of American debt that destroys the world's reserve currency but the defeat of what will be the power center of the world-- Russian led alliances of Muslim fanatics.

AND WE HAVE TO HAVE that because as things stand right now, the EU and the globalists are too weak to deal with Russia (or China for that matter).

But the Bible indicates they will rise. Either a revived Roman Empire with 10 leaders or a division of ten areas across the globe for ease of administration under the political Babylon to come.

So long answer short form--
I don't think you will be around to watch the final meltdown of America. As the world's reserve currency has to limp along till conditions are perfect to implement the future Babylon currency under the AC which I think has to come about as a response to the petrodollar evaporating over night as the Rapture takes place.

It's speculative but I think it sort of fits.

This made me LOL! :ahaha I don't know why, because it's pitiful how right you are. Maybe it's a laugh of relief and ironic gratitude, because I always imagine an EMP or something horrific. I'm still mulling over the rest of your post. But yeah....thanks for the confirmation :ahaha

I know, there's so many voices in the prophecy landscape calling for disasters from EMPs to Chinese or Russian nukes to the coming economic MEGA collapse that it can be a little daunting. I'm bucking the tide here.

But the words of Jesus are that He will remove us from the wrath to come. Not give us a glowing preview.

Obviously the world has seen many a disaster come and go, including our recent year of China's virus torture for the planet but none of it will come close to the Tribulation. The fires of Australia and elsewhere. World Wars 1 & 2.

These are just birth pains, warnings of what's to come. Some function to put the furniture of the Tribulation in place. They are God's mercy to shake the sleepers awake to their need of salvation.

As I've gone over the Word, it seems to me that the time before the Rapture will be the least likely time in the eyes of the world for big time life changing disaster to hit and if any of the doomsday stuff had recently happened, it would stop that buying and selling or expectations of peace and security for a long time, perhaps for generations. If Noah's and Lot's illustrations in Jesus' explanation of end times are an example, they are of normality, followed by a deluge of wrath.

In short the world is being readied for the nastiest of times when they least expect it. Shock treatment, that some might get saved.

Yet people in the pre trib world persist like little campers with a campfire telling scary stories before bedtime. :eek2 :eek::campfire

And I suppose there's a certain appeal to going out with a bang instead of a whimper. An EMP or a Yellowstone caldera roaring to life rather than Biden.

But Biden is here, and God's hand is still restraining the evil that the enemy wants to bring to a nation that has sent more missionaries out than any other and assisted Israel since it's birth (sometimes not very well, but still a friend and not an enemy).

That is a nation that Satan hates and has used every nasty weapon he could bring against it from Hollywood to the current eruption of the alphabet versions of perversion.

I have thought a lot about the fact that the US sends out more missionaries as well as gives more to Christian charities than any other nation. I think about missionaries I know in Haiti who run an orphanage and schools, do medical clinics and and feed many thousands of people...all as they give the gospel...its hard to imagine God allowing the US to be wiped out and leaving these missionaries and the people they serve...the harvest field...high and dry.
Thanks for bucking the tide....and I still remember that EMP thread a while back where you gave that excellent information from George....it really calmed my mind & I appreciated it so much.
