Israel is a MIRACLE nation
Just 70 years ago Israel did not exist as a nation and the land was mostly barren desert and swamp. The two days I spent in hospital last week have deeply impacted me spiritually. The medical facilities in Israel are amazing, a fact which should not surprise as, as most of the latest medical and scientific advances, come from Israel. The treatment I received was also amazing – most of the doctors and nurses are Israeli Arabs, and they treat their Arab and Jewish patients wonderfully, and the cleaning staff keep the hospital immaculate. They went much further than ‘the extra mile’, to make sure that I was OK. I had an EKG and ECK test, two CT scans, a chest Xray and 2 complete blood tests. And I did not have to pay one cent above our very reasonable monthly medical fund contribution. As I sat at the window in the visitors room looking out at the extensive view of Haifa city and port, I could see all the way to Israel’s northern border with Lebanon just 30 km or 20 miles away. Contemplating the treatment I was receiving, I was once again impacted by the MIRACLE that the God of Israel has done in this nation over the last 70 years. My experience last week will make Israel’s 70th birthday celebrations next April even more sweeter!
Sadly our neighbours, the international politicians, and most of the world do not see Israel in the same light. They see Israel as a cruel occupying power and an apartheid state, which is as far from the truth as you can get. Regardless of the fact that most modern scientific, medical and technological advances that the whole world enjoys, come from Israel and the Jewish people, most of world hates us today, as they have always hated the Jews. Sadly that is not an exaggeration, nor should it come as a surprise, as the Bible explains why that is in 1 John 5:19. And just as we have seen during nearly 4000 years of Israel’s history, the desire to see the end of Israel and the Jewish people is still out there – in a major way.
We have seen this very clearly since President Trump kept his election promise that the USA will officially recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and will move the US Embassy back to where every nation’s embassy should be – Jerusalem. This major decision that all previous US presidents, who made the same election promise but failed to keep, has understandably attracted furious anger in the Muslim world and much criticism from the majority of world leaders and the secular media. The violent riots which broke out in the West Bank and East Jerusalem have died down, but this move may well be the match that lights the fuse of the next war in the Middle East, and it may be the ‘biggie’. The Israel hating regime in Iran continues to arm and finance Hamas and Hezbollah terror groups, (and others), and they are all growing impatient to be rid of what they call ‘the Zionist cancer.’
One possible scenario that came to mind while I was in China was that perhaps the Devil is stirring up a conflict between North Korea and the USA (the equally evil regime in North Korea fired another large missile) to enable Iran and her proxies to launch a major offensive against Israel. If the US is occupied in a conflict with North Korea, it will seriously reduce the US ability to come to the aid of Israel, and there is no other nation that would come to assist Israel. The current situation has the potential to turn into a major war, which will affect the entire world.
The Muslim dominated Arab League, the United Nations and the European Union are all major tools of Satan, which explains why all three organisations are so prejudiced against Israel. This week the UN intended to draft yet another anti-Israel resolution denying that Jerusalem is the capital, however the resolution was vetoed by the USA. That will not stop the Devil inspired political leaders of the great majority of the world continuing to oppose Israel’s right to choose what city shall be the capital. Now it does not seem out of the realm of possibility that an international force will be despatched against Israel to militarily enforce the will of the nations and to forcibly take at least half of Jerusalem off its rightful owners – the Jewish people.
In reality it is YHVH they are opposing, and by doing so they are placing the future of their nations and their citizens in great peril, as YHVH has made it very clear in His Word, what He will do those who oppose Him and take Israel lightly (Genesis 12:3, Joel 3:1-2, Isaiah 60:12). This can happen at any time now that President Trump has lit the fuse, and all of a sudden we will move from the events of Zechariah chapter 12:1-3 to chapter 14:1-4, where we see the LORD destroy the armies of the nations. And then in verse 5 we see the return of Yeshua. Brothers and sisters, it is getting very close – Hallelu YAH!
I have not written this to scare you, but to encourage you to prepare – to prepare for a major change in our usually quiet lifestyle, and even more important to increase your prayer activity. Please pray that in the event of a major attack against Israel that the GOD of Israel will repeat what HE did in the Six Day War in 1967, and that every nation or terror group that attacks Israel will be completely destroyed in just a few days.
