Friends, I think we are seeing the UN getting its "teeth."

Look at what what said recently by French president Sarkozy at an EU summit.

Sarkozy warns Arab rulers about Libya precedent

"UN Security Council resolution 1973 authorising air strikes on Libya has created a legal and political precedent on the "responsibility to protect.""

"There is a new post-UNSC 1973 model of world governance."

He suggested that the Ivory Coast will be next in line for a UN vote on intervention, and, referring to deadly violence in Syria, he explained: "Every ruler should understand, and especially every Arab ruler should understand that the reaction of the international community and of Europe will from this moment on each time be the same."

This is the subject of an interesting analysis of the situation. It appears that the "R2P" or "Responsibility to Protect" doctrine is gaining momentum and in danger of getting real teeth. What's interesting one of the people behind the movement, it is a name that turns up as financier or patron of some of the most radical and dangerous leftist organisations dedicated to destroying Capitalism and replacing it with a Socialist "dictatorship of the proletariat". These organisations think that government knows best and that it should regulate all aspects of life - control of the UN would allow such control over all nations especially if the doctrine of sovereignty is altered from self-rule to a "responsibility" to "protect" everyone by force if necessary. In the case of countries like the US and Australia that would mean forcing open borders to a flood of people claiming to be refugees.

I don't know about 2011 or what is going to happen in the rest of the year but if the end doesn't come this year, we are still awaiting the tribulation which is the sign the end is here and not just "near", it is going to be an interesting and painful few years to come.

I remember during Barack Obama's campaign for presidency, he did announce that he wants to work with U.N. to get peace and security since that is what the world needs to get back on it's feet. My dad and I saw and heard that and spit out our breakfast!!!! Ever since then, I started paying a lil closer attention to the news.

Sundown: Is Syria Next?

http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/62910/sundown-is-syria-next/

Watching the news today it seems like the media is making the case for intervention in Syria. What amazes me is how quickly the world scene has changed. It's not hard to see how Babylon's judgement will come in "one hour". Exciting times!

Thanks for the news update!

Lets also not forget. THIS WILL BE A TIME OF TESTING FOR US. The great tribulation will not be all peaches and cream, Satan will make sure of that :P We can rejoice under the protection of Jehovah, so our most valuable possesion is our faith (tu) I've got some popcorn too, but the drinks only come after all of this comes to pass!

I just found a nice part from the "Live with Jehovah's Day In Mind" book! Aside from being in expectation from it, we also want to be as ready as we can for it! :yes:

From Chapter 3 page 38.

PROVE YOURSELVES READY

Because the judgment messages apply mainly to false religion, some Christians might feel that they will not be affected by the fulfillment of these prophecies. However, what Amos told the Israelites has practical value to all: “Woe to those who are craving the day of Jehovah!” Some Israelites in Amos’ day thought that Jehovah’s day would mean only blessings for them, believing that it would be the day when God acts for his people. They even craved that day! To self-conceited ones, though, the day of Jehovah would “be darkness, and no light,” Amos continued. Yes, those Israelites were on the receiving end of Jehovah’s wrath!—Amos 5:18.

Amos then described what would happen to those who were craving the day of Jehovah. Think of a man who flees from a lion and ends up meeting a bear. Running away from the bear, he takes refuge in a house. Panting for breath, he closes the door behind him and leans on the wall, only to be bitten by a snake. In a way, that is the destiny of the ones who are not really ready for the day of Jehovah.—Amos 5:19.

I love this book :P

This is all great news!! Time indeed to lift up our heads for our salvation is at hand!!

Is it a coincidence that Jehovah NOW tells us to pioneer next month??

By the way Ethiopia is next see article below, and am thinking Eritrea not far (where our brothers are under ban as well)

Last month, the newly formed Tinsae Ethiopia Patriots Union has distributed “Beka!” (Enough!) pamphlet in Amharic, Oromgna and Tigregna using its network through out Ethiopia. In a follow up pamphlet two weeks ago, Tinsae Ethiopia has called for for nationwide protests in the month of May, 2011, to remove Meles Zenawi’s dictatorship from power.

Tinsae Ethiopia has stated that Ethiopians have rejected the Meles regime during the 2005 elections, but the regime has taken brutal measures to stay in power, while continuing to misrule the country and commit atrocities. May 2011 will be the Meles regime’s 20th anniversary in power. Tinsae Ethiopia has called on Ethiopians inside the country and around to rally around the slogan “Beka!” (Enough).

Recalling previous attempts by the Meles regime to divert attention from itself by inciting ethnic and religious clashes, Tinsae Ethiopia has asked every Ethiopian to not fall prey for such scheme and look after the well-being of each other regardless of one’s religion or ethnic back ground. Tinsae Ethiopia has also sent out a message to the armed forces in Ethiopia to join the people’s demand for change and help bring Meles and his collaborators to justice

Let's indeed get the popcorn, potato chips cheese and onion ketchup flavored INSIGHT to the SCRIPTURES!

Wow that's crazy Maureenbn :eek: I never read their Quran before but the part that says "ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another" caught my attention. And the title "The Religion Of Peace and a 'big stack of dead bodies" just drives my thoughts home! I mean seriously, if they're promoting this kind of message then I think the point is clear! BAD message :nope:

I Love the BT chap. 2 par 16-21, lesson for this week this point really stood out in paragraph 20 it says:

The end of this system of things is rapidly approaching. Never before have so many lives been at stake. We do not know how many more rightly disposed ones may yet respond to our message. But it is our responsibility to help such ones before it is too late.

As much as we jest about exciting times and eating popcorn. We have a responsibility to reach people. Lives are at stake!

We do not want to be blood guilty. There is over 7 billion people in the world. We need to Advertise, Advertise, Advertise,.. the King and his Kingdom!....May Jehovah Help us all!

Very good point! Tonight we just had our meeting and I just came to think about this with my wife and daughter, "never before have so many lives been at stake". It's amazing the scope of our commission we have, there are literally billions of lives at stake and how 'urgent' we should be at helping them come to an accurate knowledge among all this apostacy and filth out there right now. It's literally urgent for us to help these people and Jehovah will not let anyone stop us as a whole.

Yes Marcus,

It is only a matter of time when the UN will get mad at false religion. And it says ALL religion so with statements such as that from the Islam world. It is only a matter of time.

May we stand erect and await our deliverance!! >:D<
