Outgoing MI Chief: in Next War, TEL AVIV IS FRONT LINE

Major-General Amos Yadlin, the outgoing head of the IDF's Intelligence Branch, told the cabinet Sunday (21st November 2010) that Iran is the major threat against Israel, and not only with regard to its nuclear ambition. “Iran is reaching out with octopus-arms to anyone who acts against Israel,” he said. "In the next confrontation, there is a chance that war will break out on more than one front, and that Tel Aviv will become a front,” Yadlin warned, as he has before. “There is also a struggle against the very legitimacy of Israel's existence,” he added, “and to face it we need intelligence and to mobilize the nation.”

"Israel's deterrent power is very strong,” Yadlin told the ministers in his final briefing as Military Intelligence Head, “but the quiet should not deceive us – to the contrary. Our enemies are getting stronger and arming themselves.”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu bid Yadlin farewell and said: "I met with him every week, sometimes several times a week. We discussed the difficult problems and new challenges that face us, from the Iranian nuclear threat through the threat of missiles and rockets against the State of Israel, the development of Hizbullah and Hamas, as well as various developments in the countries of the region. I believe that Amos succeeded in giving us the tools with which to assess these dangers and to prepare to meet them."

Israel is currently bracing itself for an expected attack by her near neighbors which will be orchestrated by Iran. Such an attack has been announced numerous times by the Iranian government. I personally believe that it has also been predicted in the Koran and in the Bible. Many Muslims across the world are anticipating it and preparing in various ways. Why is it that the Church for the most part, is not recognizing the inevitability and imminence of this attack?

One of the Biblical predictions that clearly describes this attack, also predicts a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon Israel that will soon be followed by an outpouring upon all flesh. (Joel 2:28) The world scene will dramatically change and the Church will soon be confronted by a new challenge and a glorious opportunity. The events that will surely follow this outrageous attack. We must pray earnestly and passionately that the Church will awake to the predicted attack and the astounding aftermath. The whole world will be affected one way or another but this predicted event will affect the Church more than any other people group on earth. The Church needs to urgently ask itself exactly what is about to happen? How will it affect the nations on earth? What can we do to prepare for these imminent eventualities?
