The war to come – Gaza follows Damascus

Author Stephen Pidgeon - Sunday, January 25, 2015


We have seen now that Amoc has predicted that Karmel would wither and the shepherds would mourn.  After that, Damascus would come under judgment.  This prophecy has unfolded before our very eyes.  What follows?

Amoc 1:6-8

Thus says YAHUAH; For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they carried away captive the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom: 7 But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, which shall devour the palaces thereof: 8 And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holds the sceptre from Ashqelon, and I will turn my hand against Eqron: and the remnant of the Pelishtiym shall perish, says ADONAI YAHUAH.

First on the list of battles to come following the withering of Carmel is of course a war with Gaza.  Let us consider the timeline.  The fifteenth day of the first month of the Hebrew calendar in 2014 ushered in the first of four lunar eclipses which rendered the moon a reddish color.  This kind of eclipse is known as a blood moon.  In Hebrew, the red moon is called adom yare’ach.  This eclipse occurred on April 14, 2014.  Let’s call this particular eclipse adom yare’ach rishon (the first blood moon). 

In the Hebrew calendar, the mid feast which follows the spring feasts is the feast of Sheva’oth, also known as Pentecost.  The nation of Israel was formed on Sheva’oth in 1948.  The importance of this date cannot be understated.  In 2014, this feast was on June 4, 2014.  The events discussed below occurred thereafter.

This prophecy in Amoc concerning Gaza recognizes that Ashdod and Ashqelon are out from under the leadership of Gaza (the inhabitants of Gaza are cut off from Ashdod, and the leadership of Gaza, namely Hamas [he who holds the scepter] is cut off from Ashqelon), and a fire is set on the wall of Gaza.  Let’s see what facts emerge following the adom yare’ach rishon and the feast of Sheva’oth.

In 2005, Israel withdrew its authority over Gaza, trading land for peace.  In 2006, Hamas took control of Gaza pursuant to its success in an election.  Hamas refused to recognize any of the prior agreements or to recognize Israel as a state.  Following an economic blockade by Israel in late 2006, Hamas began a series of rocket attacks on local Israeli cities and agricultural communities.  Hamas then took an Israeli soldier as a hostage (one transgression). Israel began Operation Cast Lead in 2008.  In November, 2012, Hamas laid a barrage of rocket strikes on Israeli targets, (two transgressions), and Israel responded with Operation Pillar of Defense.  A cease fire was brokered; however, Hamas hit Israel with an average of 63 rockets per month thereafter until December of 2014, when Hamas refrained from firing on Israel.  2014 opened with 85 rocket strikes from Hamas on Israeli villages (three transgressions).  In April, 2014, Hamas joined with Fatah in a unity government, and Fatah expressed solidarity with Hamas in refusing to recognize the state of Israel. 

On June 4, 2014, (Sheva’oth) Israel announced that there would be construction of 1,500 new homes in East Jerusalem and the West Bank of Israel.  On June 12, 2014, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and later murdered.  Israel blamed Hamas.  On July 1, 2014, Israel launched Operation Brother’s Keeper, which has been construed as the War in Gaza.

During this war, a fire was brought on the wall of Gaza and its military might was dramatically curtailed.  The tunnels which had been constructed for purposes of secret invasions into Israel were destroyed, and the munitions, including the arsenal of rockets being stored in Gaza, were mostly destroyed.  The Israeli military did its own work, yet following the war, YAH himself flooded the region, pouring water deep into whatever remained of the tunnels.  Bear in mind that almost all of the foreign aid which had poured into Gaza to build roads, hospitals and schools had been rerouted out of hatred into the construction of tunnels.  Now, Gaza has neither the roads, hospitals, and schools as proposed, nor its tunnels of war.
