I do not claim to know all the Bible, but just enough to point some things out.
Already, the voices of detractors are circling because anytime you talk about Israel and Obama, it’s predetermined that there is hatred against Obama. And anti Semitism is becoming a normal act these days. “Blame the Jews for everything.” It’s much bigger than this and if you do not see the bigger picture behind this, nothing that I or anyone else will say will change your mind. You’ll just have to see how this plays out and determine later that it was the hand of God all along.
I could miss it just like everyone else. I’m not perfect, but I’m not stupid either.
The OT is more about God’s interaction with men before grace than it is with the law/torah-instruction from the Lord God. Many will say that whenever there is an interaction between God and man in the OT, many write off that interaction and never learn a vital lesson.
That God interacts with man on God’s terms and not yours.
This dangerous approach of chucking OT interaction is mixed with the fact that we are under grace and therefore we are immune from any “judgment” as executed by God. But if you look carefully in the NT, you will find that the only Scriptures that the early believers had was………..drum roll………the OT, until our current Bible was formed in………..the 1400’s/1500’s.
Regarding “Scripture”, for instance, when Paul mentioned the resurrection of Jesus in 1 Corinthians 15, he said that “Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you — unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,”
Now mind you that I am not advocating returning to the OT.
We are under grace for we are saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus. We cannot live the law/torah/instruction so Jesus lived it for us and we are now under the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. That’s of course those of us that repented and declare that Jesus is Lord over our lives, believing that God raised Jesus from the dead (see Romans 10:9-10).
So much of what was written by Paul, Peter, John, James, Jude, Luke, Matthew, Mark, and the unknown writer of Hebrews was undoubtedly substantiated by the quoting of the OT. Nine writers in all. According to Biblical Numerology, nine is the number of finality, meaning that the single digits cease with the number nine. Hence, the NT is final.
Grace superseded the law/torah/instruction but the interaction between God and man continued.
God’s attitude towards sin is still the same. God hates sin and those that deliberately practice sin. As I have said before, God knows how to hate and love at the same time. He is God and that’s all you and I need to know.
God gave the land to Israel and there is nothing that you or I can do about it.
God said to Abraham these words in Genesis 12:1-4 “Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy- five years old when he departed from Haran.”
This interaction between God and Abram, now Abraham (from exalted father to father of many nations) is a covenant without your permission, input, or interjection. There is nothing that you can do to interrupt, derail, stop, suspend, or cancel. We are all powerless to tell God that it is not fair, or that the Palestinians or anyone else has a right to occupy or share a land exclusively given to Israel by God.
Sadly, in the face of this Scripture, people will still act like they are stoned on stuff and not see or accept the Scripture.
The election of Bill Clinton, George Bush, and Barack Obama is according to a plan that no one realizes until it is too late.
During the administration of Bill Clinton, the land for peace deal between the Palestinians and Israel, while Benjamin Netanyahu was prime minister of Israel, cost the United States and Netanyahu was voted from office. Not because he gave up land for peace but because Arafat and the Clinton administration behind the scenes push to remove Netanyahu so that a deal for land for peace could be initiated by the new prime minister of Israel, Ehud Barak. And Netanyahu was voted from office in 1999. How did it cost the United States?
Clinton’s sexual escapades reached a climax (pun intended) where he was humiliated before the world in 1998. As a note, even then, they were looking at establishing constitutional rights for homosexuals so they produced a precursor law called DADT (don’t ask, don’t tell). Then in 1996, legislation was approved for DOMA or Defense of Marriage Act which was incorrectly addressed as having some parts declared unconstitutional by the SCOTUS.
DOMA allowed states to refuse to recognize same sex marriages.
And on the 29 of April, the SCOTUS will hear oral arguments to allow the federal government to completely bypass states rights to further legalize the sin of homosexuality against states wishes. This sets a dangerous precedence that will have repercussions that will further affect the economic status, should they side in with LGBT.
For the United States, the embassy bombings of Tanzania and Kenya in 1998, and the attack on the USS Cole in 2000 and then, under the Bush (43) administration, 9/11, was payment for meddling with the sovereign land of Israel.
The Bush (43) administration didn’t get the memo and negotiated a deal with Ariel Sharon to give up land for peace.
Under Ariel Sharon, the Israeli government gave its own people until August 15, 2005 to evacuate their own land and give it to the Palestinians. In January of 2006, judgment from God fell and Ariel Sharon was stricken with a stroke and ultimately died in January of 2014.
For the Untied States, judgment fell when Katrina hit on 29 August 2005.
Evacuation for evacuation.
After 9/11, the 20 billion dollar surplus was wipe out in a matter of months, even after the Bush administration gave the American people some of it’s money back.
Then in 2008, the stock market crash. And the downturn of the economy is still in effect even after 7 years.
In 2001, the stock market lost 7% of it’s value.
In 2008, the stock market lost 7% of it’s value, losing 1.2 trillion dollars.
Seven, in Biblical numerology is perfection.
Hence, a perfect curse placed upon a nation bent on forcing Israel to establish a land for peace deal that is against the will of God established by God over 5775 years ago based on the Jewish lunar calendar.
With the current president, Barack Obama, the continued policy of two states living side by side is once again on the table.
In speech after speech, Obama continues to push Israel to give up land for peace.
The contention between Obama and Netanyahu is fierce because Netanyahu will not budge.
And based on “Scripture,” rightfully so.
So from 9-11-2001 seven years after this the recession of September 29, 2008.
Seven years from 2008 is 2015, what is on the horizon?
We don’t know and to speculate would be error, but knowing where we stand as a nation that’s on the brink of bypassing states rights to stand for marriage between one man and one woman, there is no question in my mind that we are in trouble. Especially if pastors and professed believers turn their backs on God.
Also, history has proven that when a nation has an anti Israel policy and has negotiated in the past for a Palestinian solution, the United States has always been the loser so far. Every nation that is against Israel has been cursed and every nation that has blessed Israel has been blessed.
After the United States, under the Truman administration backed Israel to become a nation in 1948, this nation received the benefits of Genesis 12:1-4. The greatest economic boom increased the prosperity of the United States. But beginning with the Carter administration, we see that negotiating land for peace proved to be a costly endeavor. The humiliation of Tehran with the siege on the embassy for 444 days and the oil embargo hurt the United States.
Some of you might be old enough to remember the long lines for gas and the economic disaster because of such policies.
In fact, no nation that has ever had an anti Israeli policy every wins.
This government is using a smoke and mirror issue. The homosexual agenda is being pushed in the Untied States to further deteriorate the moral backing this nation once had. This two pronged approach of an anti Israel policy and the sexual sin of the hour, homosexuality, is sins that we can never recover from if we fail to repent.
Furthermore, with blood on this nation’s hands as far as abortion is concerned, innocent blood has and will continue to cry out for vengeance.
The voice of the baby is in the blood just like Abel’s voice was in his blood.
And God will exact it upon this nation.
The sad part is that there’s been a major defection from the truth (apostasy).
Pastors all across the land still agree with president Obama’s position on same sex marriage in defiance of the Scriptures. I dare say that while I do not know with certainty that pastors support the president regarding Israel, I still wouldn’t want to be on the wrong side of God in either case.
Finally, every mishap that’s happening on the White House grounds and Washington is warning signals. The hedge of protection placed upon this nation by God is once again lifting. It is only a matter of time before something catastrophic will happen should we continue this perilous course to defy Almighty God.
Sadly, the votes in these presidential elections is an indication of our inability to properly discern the will of God. And it further indicates where professed believers stand on Biblical issues.
Your spot is exposed and you will reap what you sow.
The Obama dilemma is simple.
Change your policies against Israel, and you will not see what may happen. Change your policies for same sex marriage, and you may not see what may happen. Change your policies on abortion, and you may not see what may happen later this year, or thereafter.
