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.

When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh,when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. 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.”

From Adam Gouroutidis: “My beloved Israel, firstborn of my God, look up, you are not alone. Am Yisrael chai! Give glory to your God and He will glorify you again. Your enemies will be humbled again before you and your God, the sons of Hagar will know that you are God’s people and there is no other God than the God of Israel. 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.

“In this reality we are witnessing the attempts of our enemies near and far to hit all we have built. The State of Israel since its establishment has not accepted and will not accept a threat to its citizens. Along with the longing for peace, the IDF stands firmly against these threats; a strong, trained and prudent army; a determined army advanced army, ready for any battle and every task.” – Lt. Gen.

“Israel was born out of a big dream and it has built a reality that has exceeded the size of the dream, but still we must build and defend Israel. I dream of being able to just be a man of good news, I wish I could come here and tell you that the hatred towards our country has ceased. That our enemies have been defeated, that we will live only in peace, now and forever. But, unfortunately, we haven’t yet reached this.” – Israel President, Shimon Peres.

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.”

Should the United States Recede Back to its 1845 Borders?

If the above question sounds a bit absurd, so should the recent proposal to the State of Israel by the Obama Administration that Israel should recede back to its 1967 borders in order to appease the Palestinian / Arab governments.

If we use the same kind of pretzel logic that the Presidential Administration is using, we could also rationalize the returning of land to Mexico that the United States took (annexed) from them in 1845 (see map below).

1845 Mexican Border

1845 Mexican Border

During the American and Mexican War (1846-1848), thousands of Mexican people were driven from their homes and lands and forced to relocate south of the new U.S. borders imposed by American aggression. Some people might even argue that American settlement in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and California is clearly illegal and should be returned to Mexico.

Please Stand in Solidarity with Israel

The truth of the matter is, Israel won the 1967 war with the Palestinians and Arabs – fair and square. No one has the right to pressure them to give up this land.

From a biblical perspective, the Children of Israel fought many such wars in the Old Testament, conquering the Amorites, Ammonites, Moabites, Jebusites, and others who originally lived in the land of Canaan. In each case, God Himself instructed the Israelites to do so, and He gave them the victory – sometimes under seemingly impossible odds. After each battle, God also instructed them to dispossess the inhabitants and possess the land for themselves, along with the spoils of war. Why should things be any different today?

God originally gave this land of Israel as a possession to Abraham and his descendents forever through his son ISAAC (not Ishmael). The land of Israel has never belonged to the Arabs nor the Palestinians since that time, and anyone who tries to undo what God has ordained will find themselves pushing against a brick wall. God made a promise to Abraham and the Jewish people long ago that still stands:

“The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, ‘Lift up your eyes from where you are and look north and south, east and west. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever…Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you.” – Genesis 13:14-17

As an American evangelical Christian I believe the Bible is inspired by God and I take it’s warnings seriously. I am a strong supporter of the State of Israel and I regularly pray for the peace (shalom) of Jerusalem (Psalms 122:7). Therefore, I am concerned that if the Obama Administration continues to pressure the State of Israel to give up the land that rightly belongs to them, the anger of God will be aroused against America and the curse pronounced against those who curse (or harm) Israel will come upon us (Genesis 12:3).

Write your congressman and protest Obama’s irrational proposal to have Israel return to its 1967 borders, and continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

The Futility of Fighting Against Israel

God will watch over & protect Israel

God will watch over & protect Israel

I just received news yesterday from the Fellowship of Christians and Jews that there is impending war between the State of Israel and her enemies that will involve much of the Middle East region. “God forbid that Israel should have to go to war,” said Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein. “But if her enemies do strike, Israel will be ready.”

Please continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the shalom of the State of Israel. Her enemies are dedicated to destroying the Jewish State and her people, but God Himself will not allow it. He promised Abraham and his descendents (through Isaac) long ago, “I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you…” (Genesis 12:3).

Israel’s enemies may try to harm the Jewish State, but in the long run they will bring shame and ruin to themselves. Hitler’s post-World War II Germany is a prominent example. The Evil Axis of extremist Muslim nations such as Iran, Syria and others will attempt to “destroy Israel and wipe them off the map”, but they will bring God’s wrath upon themselves in the process.
