The U.S. Senate is considering giving unprecedented aid to Israel. According to YNet News, The US Senate is currently reviewing the US-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012 which passed the House of Representatives earlier this month. The bill proposes shared satellite intelligence, aerial refueling tankers, specialized munitions and surplus drawdown gear from Iraq. A Senate aide said the bill has already amassed nearly 50 co-sponsors and is expected to pass "by a lopsided margin or even unanimous vote" once it reaches the Senate floor, the Defense News weekly reported. Sen. Johnny Isakson said "There should not be one scintilla of light between the positions of Republicans and Democrats on the issue of the security of Israel."
British leaders hold meeting on their country's role in Iran-Israel conflict. According to the AFP, Britain's leaders are discussing how to respond to any military confrontation between Israel and Iran, including the possible involvement of its navy. As six world powers began talks in Baghdad with Iran on its nuclear programme, the BBC said the National Security Council, which is chaired by Prime Minister David Cameron, had met last week to discuss the issue. Government lawyers have been examining the legality of any British involvement, "ranging from British diplomatic support for Israel through to the possible involvement of the Royal Navy in the region."
Iranian government tightens the noose on Christians. According to Mohabat News, reports from Tehran indicate that leaders of the central Assemblies of God church of Tehran asked their congregation in Sunday services to voluntarily present them with a list of their names and National ID numbers so that they could submit the list to the officials. This reveals the identity of Christian converts and enables security authorities to record detailed information about the Christians. With the government demanding their names and ID numbers, Christians will now be even easier to track and arrest or persecute later on bogus charges. This move is most likely an attempt at emptying church buildings, however, the Christians will end up going to house churches.

In closing, remember the words of the Lord in Matthew 24:42: "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come." Matthew 24:44 says, "Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh."
If you are not ready, John 3:16 says "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." May I encourage you to accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour today so that you can be ready for Jesus Christ's return.
