As the war against Israel continues to wage not only regionally but globally, conditions are forming that portend Jeremiah 30: 7, the time of Jacob’s Trouble, but Israel SHALL be saved out of it . . . .by God Himself.
Israel’s very existence and ongoing preservation are supernatural.
In the ICEJ prayer Zoom this week, we heard a prominent messianic leader in Israel admit that Israel needs a big answer from Heaven because this is becoming the time of Jacob’s distress. Israel, there is no doubt, is in great trouble at this time. He said this is the most distressful time of modern Israel’s 75 years of existence except for the War of Independence. He said the situation is nearly impossible to resolve but nothing is impossible with God.
Meanwhile the masses are ignorant of God’s Word as the above Internet screenshot demonstrates from a BLM-Palestine rally claiming Israel is the product of “colonization not liberation.” That is a lie. God himself repeatedly stated in his Word that HE would cause his people the Jews to return to their own Land in the last days. (Read Ezekiel 36-39) That is not colonization; it is renovation.
God is a Zionist.
But as usual Satan is overplaying his hand. One of his current tactics is to try to highjack Jesus to make him a Palestinian and to make his holy narrative serve the wicked Hamas.
But, thank God, the Jews aren’t having it!
Behold, this recent Jerusalem Post headline, “Jesus was not Palestinian, we need to dispel that myth forever.” The opinion piece in a secular Jewish newspaper amounts to a Bible study.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
Jesus, a Jew, would be in for a real surprise (and identity crisis) to hear guests on his birthday claiming that he was from Palestine, a term he might have never encountered during his lifetime. Nevertheless, it’s that time of year; when like clockwork, some pro-Palestinian activists have again begun unleashing social media posts claiming that Jesus – born in Bethlehem – was a Palestinian.
In reality, Jesus was a proud, observant Jew who lived in his indigenous homeland of Judea and Galilee – from manger to grave. The myth that Jesus was Palestinian, a ploy designed to invite Christians to support Palestinian nationalism, often morphs into deliberate efforts to deny Jews their history,[and]sovereignty in Israel. Ironically, as Jews seek to combat rising antisemitism, now might be a good time to set the record straight on Christianity’s most important figure.
According to Christian sources, Jesus was born a Jew and he lived in a Jewish kingdom located in much of modern Israel, where Jews have now lived consecutively for 3,000 years. . . .Jesus was circumcised on the eighth day (Luke 2:21) and later attended synagogue (Luke 4:16). According to Mark, Jesus was referred to as a rabbi (Mark 10:51); and per Matthew, Jesus’s last meal was a Passover seder (Matthew 26:17).
Importantly, Jesus hailed from the Jewish kingdom of Judea (also known as Judah), “the southern province of [historic] Israel.” Matthew painstakingly detailed that Jesus was “born in Bethlehem in Judea” (Matthew 2:1) and that he preached throughout Galilee and Judea (Matthew 19:1).
Jesus also surely prayed as a Jew at the Temple in Jerusalem, which he referred to as a “house of prayer” when citing Isaiah, according to Matthew 21:13.
This, my friend, is the time for us to be heralds of truth!
We are the intercessors who will give God no rest day or night until he makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
We have entered into the season of light versus darkness described in the following passage:
He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. (Revelation 22: 11-13)
In verse 11 of this startling passage above, pairs are selected to represent good and bad: all classes of godly and ungodly: those who sin against society, those who sin against themselves: those who act honorably, and those who keep themselves pure.
What does the verse actually mean?
Some theologians say the meaning is this— time is so short that it’s hardly sufficient for people to reform themselves, to be ready for the Lord’s sudden return, and that therefore the lesson is— let those who would be ready for Him remember that now is the day of salvation.
However, other commentaries say that the meaning is a declaration of the ever terrible truth, that men are building up their destiny by the actions and habits of their lives. “Sow an act–reap a habit: sow a habit–reap a character: sow a character–reap a destiny.”
Thus this solemn declaration is included in the last chapter of the Book of Revelation.
Hebrews 3: 15, This is what the Scripture says: “Today if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. . . .”
Isaiah 55: 7, Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
