On occasion I am reminded and I have before remind you that we (the USA) have been the protector of Israel, and are stated to be such in Revelation 12. So when we read the following we must return to the question — is God allowing the shut down of this age, where mortal man’s rule on the earth will cease?
I am a follower of Dianne Marshall’s blog, and yesterday she seemed to me a bit down with her post, because what is being hoped for is not coming to pass as expected and thus we keep kicking the target down the road. Following is a quote from an article in the Washington Free Beacon which causes some of the down mood among Christians on the right.
“Congressional foreign policy leaders slammed Biden’s Netanyahu snub, prompting a flurry of questions for White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who has declined to disclose when or if Biden will call the Israeli leader. Psaki also said on Friday the White House would not list Israel as a U.S. ally when asked about the relationship during her daily press briefing. (“Biden Makes History: First President in 40 Years to Punt on Contacting Israel – White House doesn’t list Israel as American ally,” Washington Free Beacon, February 14, 2021)
In the past I had also stated to you that if God does not turn this country around in a powerful way which leads to revival, as some Christian’s on the right are prophesying, that then those unfulfilled prophecies will lead to the persecution of all of Christianity in the Americas and the world. The left is chomping at the bit to show proof of their belief that Christianity is a has been bit of philosophy and a morally bankrupt theology.
In some ways we have aided and abetted in their cause, because we have so much disunity of doctrine, and so much diversity of understanding. Instead of taking on the mind of Christ, we lean upon our own understanding influenced by our denomination’s understanding.
Because of all of this my question is have we truly repented of what really is wrong with us as “My People”; are we expecting God to rescue us so that we can continue as we were, and not as servants and students (disciples) searching for His truth? And then spreading that truth to a lost and deceived world.
So, if God does not act; then we must conclude that God is done with the US and America as the vehicle for truth. Done with her as the protector of Israel. He alone then becomes Israel’s protector leading her back into the olive tree where she will reign over the nations during Christ’s Millennial reign. And that we know He will at some point do.
If we as a church are not willing to bring our understanding of God’s truth into alignment with His as revealed in His word then is He going to be willing to answer our prayer for turning around our nation?
And if somehow, even despite our unwillingness, still He does intervene to in some miraculous way reinstate Trump into this nations leadership, as is being requested, will that then be construed by we His people to mean that He is pleased with how we were, or will we have learned any lessons from these days. — Days when we are being or (were almost) thrown into Tribulation and Great Tribulation?
Revelation 2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. (KJV)
Based on this word of Jesus to us, if we are delivered it still will not complete our learning as these churches are representing us today, and until the end of the age. And it thus appears that we, without our seeing and experiencing our part in Great Tribulation, will not “know that ( I am He ) which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works”.
This is obviously the Truth that we as the Church do not even begin to understand today, and that we will not gain understanding of apart from Great Tribulation.
God confirms this word as fact in so many ways in scripture, and, yes, Israel is key to prophecy.
Romans 11:15 For if their [present] rejection [of salvation] is for the reconciliation of the world [to God], what will their acceptance [of salvation] be but [nothing less than] life from the dead? (AMP)
Israel’s rejection of her Messiah has meant Salvation for the Gentiles, and her acceptance of Her Messiah, which will lead to His return, will mean (resurrection) life from the dead for the entirety of God’s people who were in, left in or added to His olive tree (All Believers) in Messiah. That resurrection leads to the Rapture of those alive and remaining.
