Israel, the EU, the US and Prophecy


bill-wilson-2012There has been a huge train wreck in Spain, killing some 77 people. The US House of Representatives voted to continue spying on Americans. There is a tropical storm brewing in the Caribbean. All this and more since Secretary of State John Kerry announced he is forcing Israel and the Palestinian Authority to the peace table, AND the European Union announced it would ban funding any nongovernmental organizations that have ties with Jewish communities or businesses in Judea, Samaria and parts of Jerusalem that were not part of Israel prior to 1967. Many people would say it is merely coincidence that these events pressuring Israel and the political, financial or natural disasters are linked.

In Genesis 12:2,3, the Lord tells Abram “And I will make thee a great nation…And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curses thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” This was the beginning of Israel. Throughout the Bible this promise can be seen, even to the Day of the Lord. In Zechariah 12:9, the Lord says, “And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” The question is: Do we see types and shadows of these promises today when the nations come against Israel?  White House correspondent Bill Koenig has documented such things in his book “Eye to Eye: the consequences of dividing Israel.”

People will say, why just the US or Europe? What about the Islamic nations that are actually coming against Israel? Maybe we have become so accustomed to it, but look at the horrors that face the Muslim people in those countries every day. There is immense poverty. Women and children are sold into slavery or are treated worse than animals when compared with other societies. There is turmoil throughout the region that is named in Ezekiel and by the other prophets of nations who are named in the Day of the Lord. “Palestinian” children are taught in their schools that Jews are pigs and that they should be slaughtered in Jihad. If you don’t believe it, look it up. There are many credible references on this.

Now Saudi Arabia is petitioning the United Nations to pressure Israel to “end human rights violations against the Palestinian people.” In a statement to the UN Security Council, Saudi Arabia’s Charge D’affaires asked the UN to “make [Israel] understand that there is no choice but peace and that this issue is not limited only to routine reviews in the Security Council’s deliberations.” Trouble is, the “peace” of Islam and the peace of other nations are two different things. Islamic peace means submission to Islam. Watch and see if there are prophetic consequences to coming against Israel. As the prophet Jeremiah said, “They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people lightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.”
