Israel And Our Spiritual And Moral Thermometer

Written by gregdenham on March 21st, 2010

Did you hear the uproar when Israel announced a new building project in east Jerusalem while V.P. Biden was in the Holy Land on a diplomatic mission? Our Vice President and Secretary State with the full backing of President Obama, strongly rebuked the Israeli’s for failing to show more good faith in the peace process!


Do you really think that the problem is a “land issue” or that “Jew’s are in the land (or even in the Middle East at all for that matter)”?

Palestinian leader’s (whoever they really are) want pre-1967 border’s, right?  But Israel was attacked in 1967, why? Was the issue land? Or that Jew’s were in the land? What about 1948?

Will building more residential sights in east Jerusalem derail a “peace process” that is ideologically driven by Islamic’s who hate Jews and want to drive them in the sea? Aahh pull back the curtain and there is Iran intoxicated by its false gods and hatred nursing Hamas and Hezbollah and now working closely with Al Qaieda.

Ironically, the day after V.P. Biden’s press conference and rebuke to Israel, the Palestinian Authority went ahead with plans to name a large public square in Ramallah after Dalal Mughrabi, who carried out the 1978 Coastal Road Massacre that killed more than three dozen Israelis, including 12 children.

How nations respond to Israel is more telling than one might imagine. It reveals their spiritual and moral temperature. When a country, even ours, puts pressure on Israel, it is generally the result of succumbing to Racism, Islamic Terrorism and willful Ignorance. In this way, the peace process is an attempt to negotiate with the “devil!”

“I will make Jerusalem and Judah like an intoxicating drink to all the nearby nations that send their armies to besiege Jerusalem. 3On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone, a burden for the world. None of the nations who try to lift it will escape unscathed.” (Zech 12:2-3)

    People think that the entire Middle East Peace thing is a physical thing (hatred of Jew and Muslim, share the land, get out of the land, etc.) but nothing could be further from the truth.
    It is a spiritual battle that has been ongoing throughout the Old Testament times until now and will continue until Jesus returns.
    Nothing in the physical world (no peace treaty, no land for peace, or not building housing in East Jerusalem) will change that fact.
    The entire plan of Satan is to remove/kill/be rid of Israel.
    If there is no Israel then God is a liar and His promises are void.
    Satan’s entire strategy is to destroy Israel.
    If there is no Israel there can be no Second Coming. It is all about preventing the Second Coming which in turn is the demise of Satan. Satan knows this and that is why there is the constant struggle in the Middle East.
    When viewed through the lens of God’s Word it is all quite clear.

    Shalu Shalom Yerushalayim – Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

    The Peace of Jerusalem is not about an absence of war, though that is part of it, but more so the actual Second Coming of Jesus. That is the only time there will be peace in Jerusalem.
    Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem – Pray for the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus.

    I love the term you used “willful ignorance”. It’s like “don’t confuse me with the facts”.
