Israel still has support in the United States, but if some have their way, it won’t be for long. There is no reason the President of the United States can’t meet with the sitting Prime Minister of Israel as he addresses Congress in Washington. The members of this Administration who boycotted Netanyahu’s speech to Congress are showing how their Anti-Semitic attitudes are beginning to reveal their true feelings toward Israel and the survival of the Jewish State. This may be a small insignificant ordeal to some, citing political concerns to attend a speech because this Prime Minister of Israel will be up for re-election in a few weeks, but to me it is a sign of Zechariah 12.
On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it.
Israel will eventually stand by herself against a world controlled by Satan, who wants to destroy them, remove their existence from the face of the earth. When we hear Israel’s enemies say these kinds of words, you might as well be hearing Satan’s voice. From Revelation 12, we read these words.
17Then the dragon became furious with the woman and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea.
This gives you the real reason Israel is so hated in the world today, and has been in history. Her enemy is not the Arabs, or ISIS, or any other government wanting to see Israel destroyed. They are only the instruments by which Satan uses to accomplish his hatred for the people responsible for his defeat, and his ultimate fate of eternal destruction. Israel brought a Savior to the world, and she must be punished for the defeat of evil.
This is why you can not only read or listen to news commentator’s who will give you only the political viewpoint, because it is incomplete. Even the best conservative pundit will not give you the source of why this is happening, because it’s not in their wheel house to do so. Only the Word of God has the answer to the issues we face in our day, and when we don’t pay attention to it’s teachings and understand the spiritual component to our day, we are losing the battle to evil’s propaganda that is heard everyday in our media. It is even more concerning to me that most Christian outlets are either ignoring the significant signs in our day, or they are ignorant of them. To place a spiritual underpinning to our news seems to be taboo in many churches, it somehow gets categorized as distasteful and irrelevant to God.
Yet, the Biblical account of the last days shows how political entities will become more corrupt, immoral, and evil oriented as time draws near to the return of Jesus Christ. Even Jesus said that the last days would be days like those in Noah’s day. Noah’s era was filled with ignorance, and the people were totally unaware of God, and His concepts. They were immoral, living out their lives only for themselves, extremely wicked, to the point God said He was sorry they were created. Those days were desperate times, much like the days in which we live.
My purpose for writing blogs as I have over these years is not to scare anyone, or to sensationalize the concept of impeding world doom, but to encourage you to do as the Bible teaches, to watch and pray. We are to be aware of what is coming and to pray for strength to stand in opposition to the evil control of our world. THIS IS NOT TO FOR US TO CHANGE THE WORLD, because you can not change God's plan for the end times. However, you stand in courage to be a source of hope for those who are confused and undecided about how they should live their lives. Courage is what will be needed as a believer in this world. Those who do not have the foundation of God’s Word in their heart, and the power of the Holy Spirit to guide and direct them, will succumb to the propaganda of this world. It has been happening slowly, as Christians abandon Israel in favor of the Palestinians, and have embraced homosexual marriage and lifestyle.
God’s Word will set us a part, and that means trial and tribulation for those who remain faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Are you getting enough of His Word into your daily diet?
