Don’t worry about ISIS – worry about God!
“For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land. – Joel 3:1, 2
As you can see by the map of Israel under David and Solomon, Israel extends to the Euphrates River in the North and through most of
Jordan in the East. Damascus is only about half way up the map that God promised to Abraham and that David and Solomon conquered. In 1922 the UN partitioned the land into a state for Israel and for the Arabs. That map is shown to the right – later in 1947, to appease the Arabs for their oil, the map was changed to a new UN Mandate, which was
never accepted by the Arabs – they went to war instead, a war which they lost! So, when President Obama calls for Israel returning to pre-1947 borders, they are basically giving the West Bank, Samaria, and Gaza back to the Israelis, though I doubt he understands that! So, we have three groups trying to solve the problem of Jerusalem and Israel: 1) the nations of the world who want peace so they can continue making money off the resources of the Mideast or gain acclaim for their ‘legacy’, 2) the Muslims who can never give back land once taken by Islam and want to destroy Israel and God’s claim to the land . and 3) God who calls it My land (Joel 3:2) and declares that He has set His name in Jerusalem (1 Kings 11:36). Now, I ask you – “Who do you think will win this argument! Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu declares “Jerusalem is ours”; Obama declares Israel Must End “Occupation,” Commit to Two-State Solution; in the UN 136 nations demand a Palestinian state, at Israel’s expense of of coarse; and much of the Christian Church is also backing this push as well, even while forsaking their mandate for morality! Even the Pope has shown his true colors by recognizing a Palestinian state even before it exists! On the other hand, we have the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu declaring “Jerusalem won’t be divided again“. The nations are lining up and choosing sides and God is getting ready to judge them based on what they did to Israel. I exhort the leaders of all the nations, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God!” To you, the peoples of all these nations, you don’t have to follow your leaders into this quagmire of unbelief that will cost them and their countries everything they long for. You can repent and turn toward God. As Scripture advises –
Seek the LORD while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near.Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the LORD, and He will have mercy on him; And to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. – Isaiah 55:6, 7
To those who claim the name of Christ, I advise you to listen to the following message –
