I believe that it is just a matter of time before the U.S. political leadership will break its alliance with Israel. Last week a United Nations resolution condemning the building of Israeli “settlements” as illegal was vetoed by the U.S. But behind the scenes it look completely different
According to ABC News:
According to ABC News:
“Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Israeli settlements ‘illegitimate’ shortly before the United States vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning continued Israeli settlement expansion as illegal.”ABC News anchor Christiane Amanpour interviewed Clinton last week, and the secretary of state had this to say:
"I think it is absolutely clear to say, number one, that it's been American policy for many years that settlements were illegitimate and it is the continuing goal and highest priority of the Obama administration to keep working toward a two-state solution with both Israelis and Palestinians."
In any event, this kind of weak stance on Israel is noticed by our enemies, which recognize that America will no longer oppose them.
According to a Reuters article this past week:
“The Brotherhood is viewed with suspicion by Washington but is seen as the only truly organized bloc in Egypt and reckons it could win up to 30 percent of votes in a free election.Whatever happened to refusing to recognize terrorist entities?
“In another sign of the transformation of Egyptian politics, al-Gama'a al-Islamiya (Islamic Group), which took up arms against Mubarak's administration in the 1990s and was crushed by security forces, held its first public meeting in 15 years.
"’Our position is to turn a new page with the new regime,’ said Assem Abdel-Maged, a group member who spent years in jail for his role in the 1981 assassination of President Anwar Sadat. ‘We will perform any positive role we can to help society.’"
Viewing with suspicion at the same time one recognizes them is identical to the above “illegitimate” vs. “illegal” stance.
All this comes at a time when Israel continues to maintain its vigilance against vicious, close enemies, at the same time they produce miracle after miracle in other arenas (such as medicine and economics).
Israel’s economy grew 7.8 percent in the fourth quarter of 2010!
It is beyond me, how people can miss the sovereign will of God in the life of modern Israel.
The Bible is easy to read and it states quite clearly that at the time of the end, Israel’s enemies will go down to historic defeat. Can we take God at His word? God says that when Israel’s enemies gather for a final attack against His people, that His “fury” will rise in His face…and the enemy that comes against Israel (actually they are coming against God, but they can't get Him so they will come against His people) will be defeated. There are a lot of people worried over Israel’s safety. We need to continue to pray for Israel, but maybe we also need to direct some of our praying for their enemies.
Because on the day they turn to attack the Jewish state, God will rise and He will act. And when he gets through with them, the blood-spatter will reach the moon.
I never thought nI would see the day that my beloved nation would turn their back on Gods chosen people, but they have and they will and soon I may be going home...to be with God, and my Savior, my older brother, who died for me on the cross of Calvary.
Can you say this as well, "Even so come Lord Jesus."
