US Senate Supports Israeli Strike on Iran

Israeli Fighter JetsIsraelis were relieved to hear of last week’s near-unanimous passing of a US Senate resolution demanding full American support should Israel deem it necessary to attack Iran’s nuclear program. The resolution, which was voted for by 99 out of 100 senators, read:

“If the Government of Israel is compelled to take military action in legitimate self-defense against Iran’s nuclear weapons program, the United States Government should stand with Israel and provide, in accordance with United States law and the constitutional responsibility of Congress to authorize the use of military force, diplomatic, military, and economic support to the Government of Israel in its defense of its territory, people, and existence.”

The resolution went on to urge the Obama Administration to take its own steps to prevent Iran from attaining a nuclear weapon so that Israel does not reach the point where it feels compelled to take action. Last Wednesday, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) published yet another report casting suspicion on Iran’s nuclear activities, and validating concerns that the Islamic Republic seeks atomic weapons. The report noted that Iran has of late significantly upgraded its ability to enrich uranium to weapons-grade levels, and that work advances on a plutonium-producing reactor. Meanwhile, Iranian state television reported at the weekend that the Islamic Republic has fielded a “massive” number of mobile long-range missile launchers. The move is a clear warning against any action targeting Iran’s nuclear facilities. Should Israel or the US threaten Iran’s nuclear program, the missiles would presumably be launched at the Jewish state and American military bases in the Middle East in an overwhelming simultaneous attack

Time is Running Short for America

AUTHOR’S NOTE: I originally published this message in May of 2012. Since then, America has not repented; instead they have continued morally downhill and further rebelled against God. Therefore, more disaster is imminent – perhaps sooner than the year 2015, as Rabbi Cahn predicts in his book, The Harbinger. God’s people need to prepare for the worst economic meltdown ever seen in the history of the United States, as well as other calamities. Only those who seek refuge in God will have any hope. Read Psalms 91 and heed its admonitions. – Pastor Luis Yosefus

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

“For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.” – Isaiah 9:16

For quite a number of years now, God’s true prophets in the Christian church have been calling America to repent and turn back to God. Sadly, many of these genuine prophetic voices have been drowned out by spiritually adulterous pastors and preachers who falsely reassure God’s people that God is not mad at them. They are like the compromising spiritual leaders of Israel who promised God’s people “peace and blessing” when disaster was looming over the horizon. When the people began to fear God’s judgments, the false prophets and lying priests comforted them by flatterings, showing that God would send peace to them, and not war.

“They offer superficial treatments for my people’s mortal wound. They give assurances of peace when there is no peace. Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down when I punish them,” says the LORD.” – Jeremiah 6:14-15

One such prophet who is sounding the alarm today is Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. He has written an important book called The Harbinger which clearly illustrates the warning signs that God has been sending upon the United States of America. He likens these progressive warning judgments as Shemittahs (pronounced She-mee-tah in Hebrew) of seven-year cycles.

* The first Shemittah was the Terrorist Attack of 9/11/2001 on New York City’s Twin Towers.

* The second Shemittah was the Economic Collapse of 2008

* The third Shemittah will happen in the year 2015.

As these seven-year Shemittahs continue, God’s judgments will get progressively worse upon America. Unless America humbles herself, seeks God’s face, and turns from her wicked ways, God will not heal this nation from all her troubles (2 Chronicles 7:14). We have forsaken the LORD who once greatly blessed this nation. Therefore, because of America’s disobedience God is now sending curses upon America instead of blessing.

God says, “Do not listen to your arrogant leaders who cause you to err.”

After the first and second Shemittah judgments in 2001 and 2008, the arrogant American politicians declared:

“We will rebuild and emerge stronger than ever before!”

Israel’s leaders gave the people the same false assurance: “They said, “We will replace the broken bricks of our ruins with finished stone, and replant the felled sycamore-fig trees with cedars.” (Isaiah 9:10)

But God has a different message for the American people. It is the same message He spoke to the rebellious nation of Israel:

“For after all this punishment, the people will still not repent. They will not seek the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. Therefore, in a single day the LORD will destroy both the head and the tail, the noble palm branch and the lowly reed. The leaders of Israel are the head, and the lying prophets are the tail.” – Isaiah 9:13-15

Unless America repents, God will send further calamities upon this nation which will reach all sorts of persons – both the prominent politicians and apostate church leaders to the lowliest persons that trusted in their lies. He will beat down their vain presumptions of peace and prosperity, by showing that these false prophets, which had fed their vain hopes, should perish, and their false prophecies with them.

Is there any hope for America?

Yes, of course. But only if the American people meet God’s conditions. America must respond to God’s progressive punishments by asking for His forgiveness and turn back to Him with all their hearts. God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but ultimately desires that all will come to repentance.

“Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?– Ezekiel 18:23

God is a God of justice and righteousness and so He calls evil and sin what they are. He holds people accountable accordingly. But God is also a God of mercy and love, and desires that all people — even the most sinful and wicked among us — repent and “turn from their wicked ways.” However, when the wicked do not repent and turn, God has no choice but to afflict them with His justice, although He takes no pleasure when they ultimately experience the consequences of their wickedness in death.

So America is at a crossroads: Will she repent of her wickedness and turn back to God, thereby averting any further judgment? Or, will she ignore God’s warning judgments and further incur His wrath until the United States of America (as we know it) ceases to exist?

Desperate Prayer is Effective Prayer.

I believe God is calling His holy remnant to fervently pray and intercede for this nation as never before.

“The effective, FERVENT prayer of a righteous man avails much.” – James 5:16

The key to effective praying is fervency. Are you willing to be fervent in your intercession? Perhaps through the multitude of our desperate prayers for America we can help turn the tide and save this nation from ultimate ruin.

May God bless America once again.

Never Forget To Lie

"Never Forget To Lie" by Marian Marzynski.

“Never Forget To Lie” by Marian Marzynski.

MOVIES

In Never Forget to Lie, Emmy-award-winning filmmaker and director Marian Marzynski journeys back to Poland to explore the story of his childhood and those of other Jewish child survivors of the Holocaust. Their parents changed their Jewish names, taught them to make the sign of the Catholic cross, and instructed them to lie about their Jewish identities in order to avoid Nazi persecution. They candidly discuss their feelings about Poland, the Catholic Church and the long-term ramifications of hiding their true identities.

Marzynski was on WBUR Radio’s “Here & Now” program today to discuss why he decided to make this film now, the vivid memories of other child survivors and the unfinished business of his own Holocaust story.

New Palestinian – Israeli War Imminent

Binyamin Netanyahu: “There will be no immunity for those firing rockets…”

Please continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6) and the State of Israel as another war seems to be imminent with Palestinian terrorists. Since last week more than 120 lethal rockets have been fired from HAMAS terrorists in Gaza into southern Israel, indiscriminately targeting innocent Israeli citizens who generally have less than a minute to find the nearest bomb shelter (Click here to see video).

Israel has a right to protect itself.

Although we must pray for Israel’s leaders to use caution and strategic restraint in retaliating against these attacks on its citizens, any self-respecting nation would be justified with the use of force. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has previously warned these terrorists that Israel will not give any immunity for those firing upon Israel.

”We will not allow anyone to arm themselves and fire rockets on us, and think they can do this with impunity,” Netanyahu remarked. “They are not going to get away with it. This is our policy.”

In a recent article, The Australian newspaper has come to the defense of Israel, asserting that Israel cannot reasonably be expected to do anything other than protect its citizens against the daily aggression launched from Gaza terrorists under HAMAS control:

”HAMAS has only itself to blame for the latest Israeli military strikes in Gaza and the sooner the international community accepts this – rather than indulging in another round of knee-jerk condemnation of the Jewish state as an aggressor – the sooner an element of reality will return to Middle East peace efforts.”

However, an escalation of this conflict is likely to continue for the present time. We encourage all believers in Jesus Christ [Messiah] to pray for peace to resume in Israel, as well as the salvation and safety of the Jewish people.

Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident. – Psalm 27:1-3

From Yael Eckstein: “Over 75,000 Israeli reserve soldiers have been called up for duty. I have a friend with a newborn son that kissed her husband goodbye yesterday. Fathers are missing their children’s birth, birthdays, and weddings. Mothers are alone with the kids, trying to explain why daddy’s gone. In response to all of the hardship, war, fear, and sadness, we have nowhere to run. For us – the Jewish people – Israel is home, and it is the only home we have.”

Rejoice, rejoice in your God my beloved people and know that He alone is God! Amen!”

Iran’s Implacable Hatred of Israel

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad  and the nation of Iran have vowed to “wipe the State of Israel off the map.”

Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Iran's modern Hitler, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Germany's Adolph Hitler

Germany's Adolph Hitler

Like Adolph Hitler, they will accept nothing less than the complete destruction of the Jewish people. In the face of this implacable madness, Israel has no choice but to preemptively strike Iran’s nuclear capabilities in order to preserve its own safety. Christians and Jews must unite in prayer for Israel’s victory in the soon coming war.

Bible prophecy also tells us that Yahovah God will support Israel in their defense. Israel’s enemies may spew their relentless hate rhetoric and threats, but God, Himself, will destroy anyone who tries to harm His covenant people. Throughout history, God has demonstrated that He will protect the Jewish people and give them ultimate victory. Time and time again, the LORD has put Israel’s enemies to shame and He will do the same for Iran and any other nation that aligns itself with her. The Psalmist once wrote about this:

“Keep not you silence, O God: hold not your peace, and be not still, O God. For, see, your enemies make a tumult: and they that hate you have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against your people, and consulted against your hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. Do to them as to the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison…Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth. O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. As the fire burns a wood, and as the flame sets the mountains on fire; So persecute them with your tempest, and make them afraid with your storm. Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek your name, O LORD. Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yes, let them be put to shame, and perish: That men may know that you, whose name alone is YAHOVAH, are the most high over all the earth.”  – Psalm 83:1-4; 9-10; 13-18

The prophet Ezekiel also predicted God’s judgment upon Israel’s enemies:

“You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, O Gog, I will bring you against my land, so that the nations may know me when I show myself holy through you before their eyes. I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’  “ – Ezekiel 38:16; 22-23

Standing with Israel brings blessing

The LORD God has also promised to bless all those who stand by the Jewish people. He made a covenant with Abraham and his Hebrew descendents long ago:

“The LORD [Yahovah] had said to Abram, ‘Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.’” – Genesis 12:1-3

Please continue to stand with Israel and pray for the peace and prosperity of Jerusalem.

Is war between Israel and Iran imminent?

According to the Israeli Prime Minister’s visit in Washington, DC this past weekend, war between Israel and Iran appears to be imminent. In one speech Benjamin Netanyahu declared:

“In the 20th century, the Jewish people have transformed from being defenseless and stateless into a strong and proud nation, fully capable of protecting itself. The Jewish state will never allow those who seek its destruction to hold means necessary to achieve such destruction. As the Prime Minister of the Israeli government, I will never have my people live in the shadow of annihilation.”

If we read between the lines, it appears that a preemptive strike by Israel against Iran to destroy their nuclear weapons is suggested by Netayahu’s statement, “…I will never have my people live in the shadow of annihilation.”

Previously, Iran has openly declared its intention to “destroy Israel off the map”, therefore, it would not be unreasonable to conclude that it will use its new nuclear weapons to do so. If that is the case, I don’t believe it would be wrong for Israel to protect itself before it is eventually attacked by Iran. Please pray that this war can be averted at all costs. But if it cannot, pray that Yahovah God, the Lord of hosts, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, will protect Israel and the Jewish people from all its enemies. They are still His chosen people and no weapon against them shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17).

Comment from Christians United for Israel: “We believe that when it comes to defending Israel and the Jewish people, Prime Minister Netanyahu cannot defer to anyone else’s judgements, red lines or timetables. The Prime Minister must resist pressure from any and all outside forces.”

Comment from AIPAC Executive Director Howard Kohr: “For twenty years, Israel has sounded the alarm about the dangers of Iran becoming a nuclear power in an attempt to avoid military confrontation by anyone. Israel has never treated force as the first resort. It has always been – and still is – the last resort. But Israel does not control the path Iran is on. If at some point, Israel – or anyone – must act – only Iran will be to blame.”
