The thawing of relations between the US and Iran once again says to Israel that they must stand alone with God.
The spirit of the world hates God and hates the Jewish people. This spirit is intent on wiping out God from His own planet; from removing the words “IN GOD WE TRUST” to banning God in schools. This shows the anti-Christ spirit is at work. This spirit will like to remove God’s name from the earth and hence Jerusalem.
Jerusalem stands out on the earth as the “City of God.”
The Bible says:
I Kings 11:36 “And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light always before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.”
Technology has caused a major shift in the world and in military conquests. Soon only God will be able to protect Jerusalem and He alone will be able to defend His Name. Iran is now mass producing a new unmanned drone (Shahed 129) with missile and bombing capabilities. Can you imagine an enemy with 1000 drones? – the world has changed. Technology is removing the military advantage. What does the future hold? 3D printed drones? Single-use drones?
All of this signals to the culmination of things, the fulfilling of prophecy and the end of the age. It won’t be long now – technology, the Internet, global opinion, moral decay and God’s word – all point to the END.
“For I will 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. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof…” Zechariah 14:2-4
This was written more than 2500 years ago. You may say “I don’t believe in God!” But, let me ask you:
1. How is it that Israel exists today as a nation? – Israel recognized in 1948 by the UN
2. How is it possible that the Israelites (the Jews) now controls Jerusalem? – Israel regained control of all of Jerusalem in the 1967 – Six Day war.
3. Why is all of the world is focused on Israel? – Headlines news everyday.
4. How come 2500 years later we are talking about Israel?! Why not Spain or Japan?
5. Do you know that The Old City at the heart of Jerusalem is LESS THAN A SQUARE KILOMETER!
All nations will gather against Jerusalem and to their shock and surprise they will find out that they were really fighting God. God made laws but they made their own laws. God made laws to show us sin and acts against love, but man made laws to legalize sin. God says homosexuality is wrong but, man says it is right. God says fornication is wrong but, man says it is pleasure.
Man will say “we can destroy Jerusalem and the Jews!” But God Himself will step down. Finally, man will realize that he is fighting his Maker.
Are you fighting God? Do you hate God because you love your pleasures? Well God loves you in-spite of your sin.
God has already stepped down and walked this earth to show us what love looks like. Jesus was massacred on the Cross. Look at Him, He was busted up, back ripped open, whipped, bleeding, nailed, crucified for you. He loves you. Will you hate Him for loving you? You must repent and turn from your sins and turn to God.
Sin is evil and wickedness to the extreme – it is rebellion to God.
Sin is responsible for child abuse, rape, child pornography, starvation, murder, divorce, fatherlessness and much more. It is the spirit of covetousness that causes child labour, mineral and diamond mines, as the world pursues the latest technology devices. We are quickly becoming a planet void of love.
God hates sin, the price of sin is the mashed up Body of His Son. He loves you more than He hates sin. God wants to forgive you of all your sins and He wants you with Him in Heaven. He will forgive anything, just ask Him, come to Him and He won’t reject you.
To the haters of God, I say to you that Jesus is coming back. God will step down again! We will see who is man then! There is still time for you to repent!
“The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.” Psalms 81:15
