I want to reiterate that the Bible is all about Israel, God’s chosen people, and Israel’s enemies, who are also God’s enemies. Psa 83:2 Look, your enemies are in an uproar. Those who hate you hold their heads high. V:3 They make plans in secret against your people and plot together against those you treasure. V:4 They say, “Let’s wipe out their nation so that the name of Israel will no longer be remembered.” Islam’s war cry is “Let’s wipe Israel off the map and destroy them completely so that the name of Israel will no longer be remembered.”
Now I want to explain something you may not have thought about previously. Years ago we used to sing a song “Father Abraham has many sons, and many sons has Father Abraham, I am one of them, and so are you, so lets just praise the Lord”.
The TRUE CHRISTIAN, is one of Abrahams children. Abraham is the Father of Faith. Abraham looked forward to Jesus death in faith for his salvation. We look backward to Jesus death in faith for our salvation. Gal 3:7 “Know therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.” This is affirmed also in Romans 11:17-21.
Likewise, Jesus affirms in John’s Gospel that not all Jews are the children of Abraham. (i.e. Spiritually speaking, not genetically speaking) John 8:39 The Jews replied to Jesus, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus told them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do what Abraham did. John 8:44 You are the children of your father, the Devil, and you want to follow your father’s desires.”
In the same way that unbelieving Jews have been broken off the Olive tree, (Israel) see Romans 11:17-21, the true Christians from the Gentile nations have been grafted into Israel. By faith we have become Children of Abraham, and the spiritual children of God. We are God’s children.
Now back to current affairs. Every nation which borders Israel is Islamic, and they hate and fear Israel’s God, “Jehovah”, and like unbelieving Israel, they do not acknowledge God’s Son, “Jesus the Christ, the anointed one.”
Allah has 99 names, one of Allah’s names in the Koran is “The Deceiver” the Bible says the deceiver is Satan. God does not lie or deceive. Another of Allah’s names is “The destroyer”, but the Bible says the destroyer is Satan. That means Allah cannot possibly be God, and God cannot possibly be Allah as they are diametrically opposed to each other.
We must be very clear about this, because as time goes on, if the church is not taken before the Great Tribulation, this is going to be crucial for the eternal life of the believers. There is no salvation for any who deny Christ and bow to, or worship Allah – (Satan) or his fake messiah, who is called “the antichrist”
As I mentioned in my last post, God said in Zech – 2:8 whoever touches Israel touches the apple of God’s eye. = (Hurt Israel – hurt God)
Currently, all the nations around the world, even Israel’s friends such as the USA, Australia, New Zealand, England, France, Canada etc. etc. are beginning to talk about recognising the Palestinian Authority as “The State of Palestine”. If this action is approved by the UN it would mean that the world must divide Israel to her enemies, the Islamists who have vowed a death vow to annihilate Israel. This action will ultimately lead all these nations to war against God. This war is called the Battle of Armageddon in the Bible, and it will happen during “The Great Tribulation in the fairly near future, and we, the Church, will accompany Jesus back to earth to help fight this battle. See Battle of Armagedon in -: Zec 14:2 I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem for battle. The city will be captured, the houses looted, and the women raped. Half of the people in the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people won’t be taken from the city. v:3 Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations as he does when he fights a battle. v:4 On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, just east of Jerusalem. The Mount of Olives will be split in two, forming a very large valley from east to west. Half of the mountain will move toward the north, and the other half will move toward the south. v:5 Then you will flee to the valley of my mountains, because this valley between the mountains will go as far as Azel. You will flee as you did from the earthquake at the time of King Uzziah of Judah. The LORD my God will come, and all the HOLY ONES (Saints) will be with him. This is still future!
“The US Secretary of State John Kerry indirectly conceded that the US would defend Iran’s nuclear program from Israeli sabotage on Thursday, in a hearing at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in which he was grilled over the deal reached last Tuesday.” See http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/198565#!
Israel’s supposed friends, are turning against Israel, promising Iran that they will protect them against Israel, despite the fact that Iran continue to let the USA know they hate them, and they intend to wipe the USA out as soon as they have the necessary means to do so. To Iran, Israel is the “Little Satan” but the USA is called the “Big Satan” First Iran want to wipe out Israel, then they will try and wipe out the USA.
During the Nuclear talks with Iran, when Israel could see that it was going to be a really bad deal, they decided to go ahead and take out Iran’s Nuclear facilities, but President Obama told Mr Netanyahu that if they tried to do that, the USA would shoot down the Israeli planes before they could reach Iran. See -:
“President Obama is alleged to have stopped an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets, according to reports to emerge from the Middle East at the weekend. The threat from the U.S. forced Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to abort a planned attack on Iraq, reported Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida”.
Who needs enemies when you have friends like that!!!
The United States are forever going on about how they give billions of dollars each year in aid to Israel, their major ally in the Middle East. Well according to the next articles, Iran are about to receive billions more in just a few short months with the easing of sanctions, than the USA have given to Israel since Israel became a State in 1948.
WASHINGTON — A $150 billion windfall Iran would get after a deal to curb its nuclear program is raising new alarms in Congress that it will use the money to boost terrorist funding across the Middle East.
The Iran deal will provide Iran with a cash windfall as sanctions are eased and assets are unfrozen. The total amount is estimated to be as high as $150 billion. If so, the Iran deal would give more cash to Iran than the $124.3 billion U.S. has given in total aid to Israel since 1948 For more on this see :- http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/07/27/iran-deal-worth-more-than-all-u-s-aid-to-israel-since-1948/ and again at http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2015/07/05/lawmakers-alarmed-iran-nuclear-windfall/29652429/
Senator Mike Huckabee who is running for Presidential nomination this year had the following comments on Obama’s Iran deal.
Calling Obama’s foreign policy “the most feckless in American history,” he added: “It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped.” See more at:- http://www.breitbart.com/middle-east/2015/07/27/why-mike-huckabees-holocaust-analogy-hits-the-mark/
Is it coincidence do you think, that Russia, who hate the Jews and suppressed their Jewish citizens over many many years, recently signed a Mutual Trade and Military agreement with Iran, to support each other in the future? I believe this is an end time prophecy in motion, which will be fulfilled in the near future. Ezekiel ch 38 and ch 39 describe this end time war. Many of the nations have changed their names of course over the years. It makes interesting reading when you know who the nations are.
So who are these nations today? Most Bible scholars today agree that Gog or Rosh in some translations: is the land north of the Black Sea. This is a reference to modern Russia or at least parts of it in this area north of the Black Sea. Magog: Magog was the ancient land of the Scythians. This land is now what we call Central Asia (the nations whose names all end in “Stan”) Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Meshek or Meshech : is located within modern Turkey. Tubal: ia located within modern Turkey. Persia: The ancient land of Persia is located in modern Iran. In fact, Iran was called Persia until 1935, less than 100 years ago. Ethiopia, also called Cush : is NOT modern Ethiopia, but is known today as North Sudan and perhaps parts of South Sudan. Put: Modern day Libya, possibly extending west beyond Libya to other North African nations. Gomer: is part of Turkey. Beth Togarmah: is also part of Turkey.
Isn’t it interesting that apart from Russia and Ethiopia every one of them are Islamic nations today. Ethiopia used to be Christian, but today is approx. 45 % Christian and 40% Islamist. Russia of course wants Israel’s Oil and Gas.
Above are just a few of the current events which when lined up with end time prophecy, show clearly that the nations are ganging up on Israel, and that we are in the last of the last days. If you are not yet a true and committed Christian, I suggest you think seriously about it, as there appears to be very little time left. Jesus is coming soon.
