Maybe doomsday IS near ~ By Joseph Farah

You can choose to believe it or not. It won't make any difference.

But he that touches the apple of God's eye will pay a price: "For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye." – Zechariah 2:8

If you want to understand prophecy, don't listen to Harold Camping – keep your eye on Israel and study your Bible.

In light of Harold Camping's erroneous prediction, and the fact that May 21 didn't happen in the way that Camping guaranteed, there are probably some people of the Christian faith that are now disillusioned. That is very sad, and for some of those poor suckers, they are also now financially devastated. That is even sadder! It is what happens to people that listen to the various snake-oil salesmen (who could be called false prophets), rather than reading the Bible for themselves.

It was a no-brainer with this latest prophesy from a crackpot who was wrong twice before. Just start here, at Matthew 24:36 (NIV):

36 But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
Well, I am completely fine with what Joseph Farah says in this column. He's not prophesying. Again, if you have been reading the Scriptures, you would be aware of what Jesus told us in Matthew 24:42-44 (NIV):
42 Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
It is called "being aware of what is going on." That is the purpose of "keeping watch," as I have learned from working in the security industry. So, when you become aware of what may be going on, as you will read about and see in the post, do you ask if we are near the end? Or, do you ask God what you can do to help others be ready? I'm just sayin'...

Bible prophecy may have a bad name in the light of Harold Camping's misguided date-setting, but the biggest sign of the end may have been overlooked in all the rapture hysteria of last weekend.

Once again, we've seen the U.S. hit with a series of deadly superstorms following Barack Obama's pledge to return Israel to pre-1967 borders.

Just days after Obama insisted Israel must give up lands it won through military victory with its enemies, some 200 people were killed by a tornado in Joplin, Mo.

There's a pattern here.

We saw it in Katrina, when George Bush forced Israel's withdrawal from Gaza. In fact, as everyone from Israeli rabbis to U.S. senators have noted, it seems to happen every single time the U.S. pressures Israel to divide the land.

The phenomenon was best documented by Bill Koenig, author of "Eye to Eye: Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel."

Koenig points out that nine of the 10 costliest insurance events in U.S. history followed dramatic calls by U.S. officials for Israel to make land concessions in bids for peace with its neighbors. He points out with startling detail how six of the seven costliest hurricanes in U.S. history followed such events. He points out how three of the four largest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history followed such developments.

Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, even terrorist attacks have hit America often within 24 hours of calls by U.S. officials for Israel to withdraw from Jewish land.

What does this have to do with prophecy?

It goes right back to Genesis and God's pledge to bless those who bless the children of Israel and curse those who curse them.

That is a prophecy that has seen every empire of the world come and go – yet Israel remains. It may be chastened by God. It may be dispersed. It may be divided according to His will. But God has punished every nation that has come against Israel. Each one has been judged.
