Anyone who has read my posts involving Israel, will know that I am pro Israel. Why? Prophetically, we Gentile believers are adopted heirs of Abraham, and a remnant from Israel is to be saved (added to the Olive Tree) before Christ returns. In order for that to occur there must be a Nation Israel. Prophetically there also must come a massive turn against Israel politically. This turn will present this nation with what the Bible terms the time of Jacob’s trouble.
Prophetically the time of Jacob’s trouble will return a purged remnant of Israel’s people to their Messiah.
In the first book that I had written back in the 90’s I had posed and then answered a question. Why did God call this future time of trouble for The Nation Israel, “the time of Jacob’s trouble”? Why not the time of Israel’s trouble? The answer then as it does now, seemed to be obvious to me. Before Jacob encountered his God, he was not Israel. It was not until he wrestled with the one God who proclaimed Jacob to be Israel that he truly became Israel.
The time of Jacob’s trouble will in effect accomplish the same for this people when that day arrives. The true Jew continues to be one who will have the heart circumcised. The enemies who will fulfill this time on God’s calendar are even now assembling. The following article gives current evidence to this fact.
Not a single 2020 Democrat candidate from the massive field spoke at AIPAC’s pro-Israel summit in the spring. But 5 of the 2020 Dems, Sanders, Buttigieg, Castro, Klobuchar, and Bennett, were featured at the J Street conference alongside anti-Israel activists, BDS supporters, and terrorists.
Those 2020 Dems who couldn’t attend the anti-Israel hatefest in person sent video messages.
Elizabeth Warren sent in a video message threatening to cut off aid to Israel unless it surrenders to Islamic terrorists. Then she promised to divide Jerusalem, turning half the ancient holy city into a killing ground for the murderous terrorists already occupying Gaza and portions of the West Bank.
Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke, Marianne Williamson, and even Andrew Yang joined her in sending messages of support and friendship to the anti-Israel group which has featured BDS supporters and terrorists.
The majority of the 2020 Democrat field has aligned with an anti-Israel organization. (“2020 Dems Stand with J Street, Hamas and ISIS Against Israel – Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders declare war on the Jewish State,” Daniel Greenfield, Frontpage Mag, Nov 1, 2019)
And yes there are also Christian denominations who today are anti-Israel. Those who are usually from the camp who sees the church as having replaced Israel in God’s plan. As you are aware I see scripture as teaching that Gentiles today are being joined to Israel as “one new man”, neither Jew or Gentile, but both being in Christ. This is what the scripture teaches.
It appears that the majority of israel’s people who are yet to be saved during Jacob’s trouble, will be driven out of the now established Nation and protected until they recognize and call upon Messiah, their savior and ours.
This act of Jacob will follow the time of Jacob’s trouble, and will bring back Messiah. Even so come Lord Jesus.
