Jewish Press: Tuesday’s destruction of a major Iranian-backed Hezbollah cross-border attack tunnel that penetrated 130 feet into northern Israel was the first step into stopping its plan to conquer the Galilee, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday night.
Speaking on national television from the Defense Ministry, Netanyahu said Operation Northern Shield, launched at dawn on Tuesday morning, was intended to “thwart the threat of the terrorist tunnels in southern Lebanon.” But it was also intended to stymie Hezbollah’s wider plan — expressed in recent months more than once by its leader, Hassan Nasrallah — to conquer the Galilee. more …
Opinion: This time Hezbollah is in line with Bible prophecy. Psalm 83:7 calls them ‘the inhabitants of Tyre’ who will join in a group of nation to attack Israel from the north. And Tyre, ancient name for southern Lebanon, is inhabited by Hezbollah.
There is one flaw in the terror groups thinking. Not only will they not conquer Galilee, they will be so obliterated that they will be incapable of joining in the next prophesied war called Gog and Magog.
The Psalmist Asaph (seer) gave perfect detail using ancient names for each army in the alliance. How incredible is it that Tyre (southern Lebanon) is the only nation he said would be inhabited? And that didn’t happen until the 1980s as part of an Iranian effort to organize disparate militant Lebanese Shi’a groups into a unified organization.
Hezbollah has been a terror beneficiary of the generosity of Barack Obama’s nuclear deal that provided the Mullahs of Iran over 170 billion oil revenues + $4 billion in a plane load of cash …
… in one of the worst deals in American history.
So what about the outcome? The 3000-year-old psalm implores God to deal with a future massive invasion of Israel as He dealt with Israel’s past enemies.
Deal with them as with Midian,
As with Sisera,
As with Jabin at the Brook Kishon,
10 Who perished at En Dor,
Who became as refuse on the earth.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb,
Yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 Who said, “Let us take for ourselves
The pastures of God for a possession.”
Asaph recalls Gideon’s victory over Midianite leaders Oreb and Zeeb as they tried to do what the descendants of Esau are trying to do today: Take possession of the pastures of God.
