“Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD’s side?” ~Exodus 32:26
By Christine Darg
“But understand this: In the last days perilous times will come. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, without love of good, traitorous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.” (2 Timothy 3: 1-5)
The question is more relevant than ever: Who is on the LORD’s side?
Much of the world is siding with Hamas terrorists, but such malfeasance proves the potentiality for depravity within human hearts.
It’s shocking! how the masses are supporting Hamas and justifying their evil atrocities. The right has become wrong and the wrong become right for those who have been given over to a reprobate mind.
Terrorists who literally hold infants as hostages are championed.
But whoever wants to kill Jews and chants “From the River to the Sea” has sided against the God of the Bible.
Unfolding since 1948 is Psalm 83 describing the bitter animosity of Israel’s immediate neighbors.
Do not keep silent, O God!
Do not hold Your peace,
And do not be still, O God!
For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;
And those who hate You have lifted up their head.
They have taken crafty counsel against Your people,
And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
They have said, “Come, let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
For they have consulted together with one consent;
They form a confederacy against You:
The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;
Moab and the Hagrites;
Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Assyria also has joined with them….
After decades of fighting, the main Psalm 83 enemies have been neutralized because Israel has peace with Egypt and Jordan.
However, the finishing of Psalm 83 requires defeating Hamas in the Gaza Strip and also conquering Hezbollah in the north.
As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has stated, “We are now in our second war of independence.”
Subduing the inner circle of the Psalm 83 ethnic groups will set the stage for the next war described in Ezekiel 38. The aggressors in the Ezekiel war are not Israel’s immediate neighbors but will involve nations such as Russia, Iran and Turkey.
Israel saying “no” to a Palestinian State could give Russia the excuse to put together an international coalition to invade the mountains of Israel, although Russia’s real motive would be to take a spoil and increase her own power in the region. Hence the present situation could lead to Ezekiel 38.
After the Ezekiel War, according to Daniel 11: 41 Antichrist will invade the Beautiful Land, initiating the Great Tribulation. The Jewish remnant in Judea will flee most likely to Petra. Jesus gives them advanced warning in Matthew 24: 16.
Finally at the end of the Tribulation, there will be Armageddon followed by the Millennial rule of King Messiah.
It’s all unfolding and progressing day by day.
When you stand with the God of Israel, never doubt that you’re on the right side of history.
The pro-Hamas side extols death, rape and genocide of Jews. Unbelievably the pro-Hamas people support the beheading of babies, denial of the Holocaust and kidnapping of the elderly Holocaust survivors.
A pro-Palestinian protest is a very dangerous volatile atmosphere. People hiding behind masks yell for genocide.
On the other hand, marchers in solidarity with Israel support peace and the return of hostages.
As my Israeli friend Hillel Fuld wrote this week, “If you can’t see the distinction clearly, if you still think the two sides in this war are equal . . . I am deeply sorry for you that you have proven your moral bankruptcy and have sided with the side Hitler would have sided with.”
Appallingly, as reported by Melanie Phillips, a British employment tribunal has ruled that anti-Zionism — the contemporary version of antisemitism — must be given special status in law as a “protected characteristic.”
In 2021, Bristol University fired sociology professor Dr David Miller for a series of virulent statements which made Jewish students feel uncomfortable and intimidated.
But in a ruling handed down by Judge Rohan Pirani, Miller’s anti-Zionist beliefs qualify as “philosophical” under the Equality Act 2010. The tribunal ruled that Miller was subject to direct discrimination and was unjustly fired.
The ruling will no doubt greatly concern Jews living in Britain.
Many Israeli leaders, including President Isaac Herzog, have stated that since October 7, 2023, Israel has become a nation in trauma.
The concept of “Jacob’s trouble” comes from the book of Jeremiah in the Bible, specifically Jeremiah 30: 7, which predicts a time of unequaled distress, but God promises Israel will be saved out of it in the future.
