I thought it could happen last summer. It now seems this summer may be the time. If either the EU or Iran use military force to aid “aid” ships to Gaza, there will be war. Bible students know what this war could mean.
Reports state that both Iran and EU reps are saying that the “flotilla” event will not happen the same way again.
Israel is saying that it will defend itself.
It appears that many are pushing the little land that God gave the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, into war.
How much verbiage is rhetoric and how much gets acted upon remains.
I have a Christian friend who knows of a believer who is living and ministering in Israel. The ministry is called “Love Without Boarders” and was started by one lady. She is on the ground in Israel, so I would consider this information a primary source. It is true that she is getting her information locally so one has to view it accordingly. The information is dated June 6th. I have put the intro at the end because a rearrangement puts material relating to my headline at the top.
Ron Kunath is the name of my Christian friend. His email stated:
“This is a Prayer Letter from a dear Missionary friend I worked with for many years. Check out the Gaza Flotilla Video below…God bless….RK”

A great post by Gary Stearman of Prophecy in the News:
This one is written from “their” view but is very informative.
I hope you find this as interesting as I did. There is documentation at the very end.
Christian Friends of Israel,
Beginning of Gog and Magog? – Concerning the incident this week which is
trying to give Israel bad publicity the Rabbinical Council issued an unusual
statement “We are at the beginning of Gog and Magog process where the world
is against us at first, but which ends with the third and final redemption.”
Gaza Tunnels – An estimated 1,000 tunnels are in use to smuggle various
black market goods as well as drugs and weapons. Several thousand young men
and boys are employed in the tunnels. Workers are paid $20 a day, according
to Arab media. Some tunnel operators say children are more likely than
adults to work hard even for the lower wage.
Israeli Sub deployed – Israel has allegedly deployed a permanent submarine
presence in the Persian Gulf to keep an eye on Iran, according to media
reports published Sunday. The three German-built submarines are reportedly
equipped with nuclear cruise missiles.
Syria Supports Hizbulla – Hizbullah terrorists are running weapons to
Lebanon from secret arms depots in Syria where the terrorists have been
accorded their own living quarters, arms storage site and a fleet of trucks,
Palestinians Boycott Israel – The Israel boycott by the Palestinian
Authority took on wider dimensions when Arabs burned two Arab stores for
allegedly doing business with Jews.
Hamas Refuses Flotilla Humanitarian Aid – Hamas continues to prevent the
transfer of the humanitarian aid which has been unloaded at the Kerem Shalom
crossing. The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories
(COGAT) will continue to work closely with international bodies and the
Palestinian Authority in order to organize the transfer of the goods into
the Gaza Strip.
More Gas and Possibly Oil found in Israel – According to the Globes
financial journal, the field has been discovered to be even larger than
previously thought. The field’s estimated size has grown several times as
more surveys are conducted. Last year Teshuva, originally said the gas
reserves could allow Israel to be self-sufficient in energy for two decades,
but now it seems that was a conservative estimate. “The results indicate
that in addition to the gas, there are signs of oil at a greater depth. We
have turned Israel into a great energy power. Today is a holiday for every
citizen of Israel. It’s a day of joy,” The offshore platform will be imported from the gulf of Mexico.

Gaza, the following 5 minute video will give the explanation which most
people already know here in Israel. Gaza Flotilla
L6h8iIS_ElgIrPVsxsF0MGTgnjO23YnBKqnwHwdwaY=> Unfortunately, many people
in the West listen to their local media and believe what they are told. The
Bible tells us to study to show ourselves approved. If we want to know the
truth we have to search for it and not just believe someone’s opinion.
Israel is in a Media and Public Relations war. They have been attacked and
I have been attacked in standing for Israel. After living here 11 years, I
have plenty to complain about concerning my treatment by people here in
Israel. As a matter of fact I can’t even drive my car because of laws that
restrict foreigners, it’s unfair. Though my natural instinct would be to
jump on the band wagon and criticize Israel, I have to look at all the
evidence and weigh out the matter fairly. When I do that, I have no choice
but to tell you that Israel is doing what it can under intense scrutiny of
the World to protect it’s nation and people. Again you don’t have to
believe what I or anyone else tells you, but before you judge please make
sure you have all the facts. If you know the facts you should join us in
fighting the lies with the truth. Our desire and prayer is that the truth
Radio – This week I interviewed Avi Lipkin who has written several books
concerning Israel’s situation and Islam. His wife monitors Arab media and
thus exposes what is really happening that we in the West do not hear about.

Lizzy helping with distribution
The number of Believers are growing in the Land due to the Love of Christ
being shown through the Body. A local organization donated clothing to help
the poor in a Muslim village and we were the distributors. We took material
such as the Jesus film and Bibles and with support money I bought food for 6
families. Thanks for being a part! We truly are workers together with
Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:9
A family of local Believers had their house burn down this week. They had
no clothes for the kids so part of your donations went to help this family.
We will continue to help as we can.
Thank you for being a blessing!
Christians Helping Israel – Christian Friends of Israel had their 25th
Anniversary in Jerusalem. This brought in over 600 visitors from 40
nations. Directors Sharon and Ray Sanders continue to serve Israel and
invite volunteers to serve along with them. www.cfijerusalem.org
Israel Update #12
Love Without Borders
June 6, 2010
Thanks for your prayers, the Lord answered and one of my co-workers returned
to Israel to continue helping with the work.
I met with the Ministry of Tourism this week to share some information and
thoughts so that Christians who are wanting to come to Israel can learn
more, meet the people and serve during their tour. It was a productive
meeting and he invited me to take a desk at the Ministry of Tourism and work
from their office. It would not be practical for me, but it was an honor to
be invited. I will continue to work with him and others on staff so that we
can build a better understanding between Israel and Christians from abroad.
Israel is certainly a land of opportunity, but it is also a land of
opposition. I guess that’s why we are told in 2 Timothy 2:3 You therefore
endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. We are in a battle,
wherever we are, but soldiers don’t quit in the middle of a battle. (I
learned that from my dad who fought in both Korea and Viet Nam.) I believe
the Lord wants us to be doers of the Word, pray for one anther and continue
to move forward following and serving Him.
