NO HUMAN BEING WILL BRING PEACE TO JERUSALEM!
No matter how sincere, no matter how charismatic, no matter how intellectually informed, no matter how skilled he may be in organizing and unifying people, he will not be capable of bringing this about! From quotes in the U.S. News & World Report, June, 2009: “But whether Obama can bring together a diverse coalition of ordinary Americans to get past the culture wars is the question.” And, “As someone said last year that he (Obama) prays ‘to be an instrument of God’s will;’ the president appears to be operating as a true believer.” Also he said, “As a person of faith, I believe we are called to care for each other and work to ease human suffering”.
Another amazing thing I’ve noticed about the news coverage of President Obama is the almost total acceptance of his agendas, plans and policies by the news media. He seems to have become their “Bright Star on the World Stage”, as one caption gave it in the “U.S. News”. Of course, you will see and hear some dissension and criticism.
One thing he may be successful in accomplishing is to bring about a DIVIDING of the city of Jerusalem where the Jews will share it with the Palestinians. But this would be a very unstable and dangerous situation and probably have to be shored up by outside powers.
In a Knoxville News Sentinel, June 15, 2009 article, we read: “A week after President Obama’s address to the Muslim world, Netanyahu said the Palestine state would have to be unarmed and recognize Israel as the Jewish state. With those conditions, he would accept ‘a demilitarized Palestinian state alongside the Jewish state.’” I believe we all know there will be compromises on both sides of this issue.
One prophecy indicates this division may be the case when the TRUE DELIVERER OF ISRAEL, Jesus Christ, returns at His second coming. Zechariah 14:1 “Behold the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 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 (Jewish sector?) shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the LORD go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle. 9 And the LORD shall be King over all the earth: in that day there shall be one LORD, and His Name one.” In fact, interference in the affairs of ISRAEL (Judah), may be the catalyst that will bring on W.W. III. (More about that later.)
Zechariah 12:2 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling (can mean poison) unto all people round about, when they shall be in the siege (attack) both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3 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.”
But, because of Judah’s sins (and ours of America) God will allow one final victory by our mutual enemy to overthrow us and take us into captivity for about 2-1/2 years. It probably will begin with the Arab and Muslim world (the king of the South), launching a “push” (maybe cutting off their oil supply on a militarized and Catholic Europe (the king of the North), as prophesied in Daniel 11:40 “And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind (blitzkrieg?), with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. 41 He shall enter also into the glorious land (Jerusalem and Palestine), and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom (Turkey) and Moab (Jordan), and the chief of the children of Amman. 42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and Egypt shall not escape. 43 But he shall have power (possession) over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things (oil?) of Egypt: And the Libyans and the Ethiopians (North Africans) shall be at his steps (probably to pay tribute).”
We believe, through historical evidence (from ruins of Nineveh, the ancient Assyrian capitol), where archeologists found swastikas, iron crosses, double headed eagle insignias, etc., that this king of the North is further identified as the modern Germans, descended from the ancient nation of Assyria. They were the enemy and conqueror of Old Testament Israel. In their modern fulfillment, they are again to be used as the instrument, in God’s hand, to punish present day Israel: America and Britain, as well as Judah. Isaiah 10:5 “O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. 6 I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire in the streets. (The punishment will be very severe, just as was the Holocaust on the Jews during World War II!) 7 Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so (the very idea of this animosity between our countries probably hasn’t come into their minds, yet.); but it is in his heart (the name German is from “Gar-man” or “War-man”. Yes, there are differences in people, but those differences can be healed through the Holy Spirit that God will offer to all people, eventually.) to destroy and cut off nations not a few. 12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the LORD hath performed His whole work (completed it) upon Mount Zion and upon Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks (his boasting). 13 For he saith, By the strength of MY hand, and by MY wisdom: for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man.”
We’ve faced off against this nation in two world wars and by the grace of god, defeated them. But it will be different this time around. Ezekiel 21:14 “Thou therefore, son of man, prophesy, and smite thine hands together, and LET THE SWORD (WAR) BE DOUBLED THE THIRD TIME Ö”
In the Old Testament the conquering of JUDAH and ISRAEL took place on two different dates or times: (Israel - 718 B.C. by Assyria; and Judah - 585 B.C. by Babylon) In this final defeat and captivity, they will fall TOGETHER! Hosea 5:5 “And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel (America) and Ephraim (Britain) fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them.”
Why would this be? I can only find in some of the language of our President some clue as to the reason that Europe would turn against us again; because we seem to be taking sides with Islam! Some quotes from the news-media: “In Riyadh, Saudi, Arabia: America and Islam are not exclusive, the President said”; “President invokes Quran, U.S. faith in Cairo address”; “Obama declared Thursday that AMERICA HAS A COMMON CAUSE WITH ISLAM AND WILL NEVER BE AT WAR WITH THE FAITH -an overture intently watched by the Muslim world and welcomed in unlikely quarters.” “Obama spoke at a seat of Islamic learning, his address suffused with respect for touchstones of the religion.” This is just a handful of the hundreds of main-stream news reports and well documented quotes from our new President. It would take reams of paper to cover them all.
When it comes down to world dominance, RELIGION WILL PLAY AN IMPORTANT PART. This coming Super-Power NOW ARISING IN EUROPE will again become a UNION OF CHURCH and STATE, FOLLOWING THE GUIDELINES of the Old “Holy Roman Empire”. Another Hitlerian dictator is prophesied to emerge, allied and assisted by a strong leader of the Catholic Church in Rome. The Biblical terminology for them is “the beast”, (the dictator) and “another beast” or “the false prophet.” (The religious leader - UNDOUBTEDLY, THE POPE!).
It may be that the military forces, which will be there in the confines of Jerusalem, will be European, with the pretense of protecting the city. I believe they will double-cross the Jews! Jesus Christ Prophesied of these armies, and how dangerous it would become: Luke 21:20 “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed (surrounded) with armies, then know that the desolation therof is nigh. 21 Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.”
You can read about this union occurring in Revelation 13:1 “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. (It would take a sermon of itself to explain all that this entails. We’ll only read the highlights.) 4 And they worshipped the dragon (Satan) which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him? 7 And it was given unto him to war with the saints (true Christians), --- 11 And I beheld another beast coming out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon (false prophet).”
This is that same Assyrian/German led group that we covered in the punishment of Israel in Isaiah 10:5-14! If we have denied our support and relationship with our “brother” Judah, we will pay a tremendous price! The Bible predicts we will. Isaiah 9:21 “Manasseh (America), Ephraim (Britain); and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this His (God’s) anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.” GOD IS NOT PLEASED BY THIS!
Do you think that the largest, so-called “Christian” church on this earth is going to sit still and let this Gentile religion take over this world’s religions? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
In God’s eyes NEITHER IS CORRECT! His true Saints, we read of them in Rev. 13:7, will soon become the TRUE RELIGION of this whole world! Revelation 20:4 “And I saw thrones, and they (the saints) sat upon them, and judgment was give unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image (the false church), neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years”
Obviously, from his own words, the President places no emphasis on ONE RELIGION, or ONE GOD, which is the God of the Bible and Father of Jesus Christ, in whom it is stated: Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
LETíS PROPOSE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS:
Wouldn’t it be ironic if our President was descended from a man, named Nimrod, who, shortly after the flood of Noah’s day had the same charisma and unifying influence, the same power and oratorical skills, where he could bring his subjects into this state of mind? “And the whole earth was of one language and one speech.” This original leader led others to worship him, “in place of the LORD”; until finally it says: “Behold, The People Is One” And what if a modern leader of a great nation would be able to bring the people into such a CO-OPERATIVE and UNIFIED STATE OF MIND, that he would play a KEY ROLE (BY God’s permission) in bringing about the demise of that nation?!
These are unanswerable questions. Only God knows how it will end: AND HE KNOWS! Isaiah 46:10 “Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.”
Also remember what Christ said to His disciples about the “end times”: Matthew 24:37 “But as the days of No’e were, SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE.”
FINAL SOLUTION FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM and THE WORLD
Zechariah 8:3 “Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain. 13 And it shall come to pass, as ye were a curse among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, but let your hands be strong.”
