The Enemies of Israel and Israel’s God are growing in number and in strength. They are quickly and efficiently surrounding Jerusalem. The Western World views Israel as The Problem, in the Middle East, for their ‘apartheid-like’ treatment of ‘Palestinians.’ They want Israel to play nice and expect Israel to be gone by 2024.
Israel, however, is not going anywhere! Their slogan is: “Never Again!” Never again will they allow themselves to be disconnected from their home land. Never again will world events dictate to them, where they live or how they live. They have nuclear capability and they have vowed to use it….even if it means destroying Jewish lives and Jewish cities. It is referred to as ‘The Sampson Complex.’
ISIS is growing in size, strength and reach. The world doesn’t know what to do. The U.S. and Iran are becoming ‘bed-fellows’ in their efforts to stop ISIS. Russia is being brought into the mix. Saudi Arabia has allied with Israel against this enemy. It is a very confusing and troubling time.
The prophet, Zechariah, spoke of these days:
12:2 – 9 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
4 In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness. And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.
6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem. The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.
8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
Make No Mistake! Israel [and Jerusalem] are at the very tip of the spear, in God’s prophetic program. God is preparing Israel for her Messiah. She will cry out to Him, when God shall……gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. [Zech 14:2,3]
We are watching the Final Countdown To Glory! The hearts and minds of World Leaders are in the hands of God. He is turning them whithersoever He will.
Pray For The Peace of Israel. I will come with Jesus’ Return.
