Posts Tagged ‘capital of israel’

One of the most obvious signs that we are living in the end times is the existence of Israel.  Israel as a country was created in a single day and has existed since, just as Ezekiel prophesied God said it would.  It is one of two key prophecies that push me to a premillennial perspective.  As soon as they were joined as a nation again, Zachariah’s prophecy 12:3 began to slowing creep toward fulfillment.

Zechariah 12:3 has been amazing to watch it come to pass.  I remember when I started reading the Left Behind Series and getting into prophecy that it was one that I just couldn’t get over.  I had so many questions, there were so many theories/beliefs to unpack.  But Zechariah 12:3 is one I just couldn’t see happening.  How could every nation,  turn its back on Israel?  Surely not the US, the UK, and Canada?  But here we sit, everyday our administration continues to take a stronger and stronger stance against Israel and for her enemies.  It is simply amazing.

Jim does a great job laying out the stunning nature of this change in the winds we are seeing.  Prophecy is in the process of being fulfilled right in front of us, all we have to do is take he time to look.

It’s the Holy City, Stupid

There is a key element of reality in our world today that most entire countries simply don’t get. They don’t get it because they have bought into the propaganda that the Bible is not credible.

Too bad for them.

Whenever someone asks me, “What is the one sign we are living in the last days?” I always answer one word: “Israel.”

It’s obvious. And the obviousness of the painfully obvious is lost on a clueless world.

I don’t think people who ask me this question are stupid; I do think the global community as a whole is stupid for blatantly rejecting the specialness of Israel and the Jewish people.

We have more clues this week that Bible prophecy is true, and the broad lines of the time of the end can be seen.

HonestReporting posted an article exposing the bias of The Guardian, the British paper that printed a “correction,” alleging that Israel’s capital is Tel Aviv, rather than Jerusalem.

(We must understand, “Israel Watch” readers, that appealing to the Bible holds little weight in today’s culture. In what is called a “postmodern culture,” the Bible is derided as an outdated myth.)

The paper’s own style guide says: “Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel; Tel Aviv is.

This isn’t a surprise, since the British long ago ceased to be a Bible-believing people. It follows that the British media would concede the Jerusalem issue to the Muslims.

This is absolutely stunning!

How hardened must their hearts be to fight this hard not to say that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

She wouldn’t even say that Israel had a capital.

Is it no wonder the public views this administration as anti-Israel and on the side of the muslim world?

It is why we all chucked when we heard Obama say we have Israel’s back.  Only to put a knife in it.

It truly is not a laughing matter.  God is very clear on what is at stake.

The extreme weather we have been seeing in this nation over this last three years and even prior has been a direct consequence.

Zechariah 12:3 – (NIV1984)

3 On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.
A second translation reveals even more:

Zechariah 12:3 – (NKJV)

And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.

Cut to pieces…I would say some of this weather would “cut us to pieces”.
Yet another translation reveals more:

Zechariah 12:3 – (KJV)

 3And 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.

In the prophets day, “a burdensome stone” was what they called the boundary marker stones of cities/territories.  God is telling us, anyone that tries to divide Jerusalem or move its boundaries, will be cut to pieces / injure themselves.
As a nation, we are now standing on the wrong side.
