What a week! Under the cover of the media circus surrounding the “Healthcare Reform” debate, our nation has been wrecking havoc with the traditional American-Israeli diplomatic relationship. The results? Ask people in the Northeast (11 die in unprecedented floods) or in Minnesota (worst storms on record). What message is being sent to us? It’s the same message. “Those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed”. Genesis 12:3.
One media commentator justified US verbal assaults on Israel by saying “Israel shouldn’t get a free pass”. What? Let’s analyze what’s really happening by viewing it in this way. Imagine that America has a treaty relationship with a major nation. Further imagine that the other nation decides that America shouldn’t have annexed the area of Arizona and New Mexico, demanding that the area be carved out as a separate nation. So, this “friendly” nation publically attacks America and, are you seated? Then it assails America for granting zoning and building permits for a new apartment project in Phoenix. Hunh? And add this, the attacks on the granting of building permits comes after America announced, months ago, that it is now committed to the idea of giving up its land in order to “make peace”, after years of saying it would never do so.
Only Israel is questioned by the world for building homes on its own territory. Only Israel’s leader is called by America’s Secretary of State and “reamed out for 43 minutes”. The New York Times (3/16/10) called Secretary Clinton’s comments a “harsh rebuke” to Israel. Where does our nation get off rebuking Israel? Who made us God? God didn’t. Why aren’t our leaders “reaming out” the leaders of Iran, who are daily building nuclear weapons that can be used to vaporize hundreds of thousands of human beings, maybe even Americans?
How will this all play out? Prophecy tells us that in the end times, after Israel, like a fig tree (Mark 11), is re-blossomed and re-gathered in the land, it will make peace with its enemies. America appears to be ‘hell-bent’ on forcing Israel to ‘make peace’ by giving up its land (contrary to God’s command not to do so) and by dividing Israel’s traditional capital – Jerusalem – God’s chosen city. Once the “peace” is forced on Israel the stage will be set for the Ezekiel 38/39 invasion by Russia, Iran and Libya. Thousands will die as Israel’s major friend/nation decides to look the other way, stabs Israel in the back and betrays her, contrary to our 1979 military defense agreement. May God help us then as we pay the ultimate price for our future treachery (Genesis 12:3 and Revelation 18:2).
