Coincidence or Consequence?

The Bible tells us again and again that there are consequences for those who rebel against G-D’s word. As a matter of fact it is one of the main themes throughout the entire Torah.

 

The Almighty warns us of the following: “I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Y’hoshafat ” (meaning “Adonai judges”) – which may refer to the Kidron Valley on the East of Jerusalem. ” I will enter into judgment there on behalf of My people and My heritage, Israel, whom they scattered among the nations – and they divided My land.” (Joel 3:2)

 

How much clearer should G-D’s warning be than; “DON’T DIVIDE G-D’S LAND”? How many ways does the L-rd need to tell us not to mess with Jerusalem? Can He tell us in plainer language than this not to divide Israel? Not to partition off Jerusalem? Are we deaf, illiterate or dumb?

 

Since 1967, Israel had steadfastly claimed a united Jerusalem as ‘its eternal capital, never to be divided again.”

Yet, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, has been pressuring Israel to drop all of its redline conditions in order to create a Palestinian state, which is to include the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and essentially all of east Jerusalem…, and for the first time – the division of Jerusalem is on the table.

But Jerusalem will be a heavy burden for the USA. 2,500 years ago G-D spoke through the Hebrew prophet Zechariah. “And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples…” (meaning the entire world). All who would seek to heave it away will surely be cut in pieces.” (Zechariah 12:3)  Here is the punch-line; – EVERYONE who tries to divide Jerusalem will be utterly destroyed for getting involved with it.

Isaac and Ishmael’s fight (fight between Jews & Arabs) over the possession of Jerusalem has drawn the whole world into it – just as the prophets predicted. It is the culmination of Ishmael’s 4,000 year-old hatred of his half brother Isaac, the forefather of the Israelites.

 

The prophet Obadiah warned that God “deals with any nation in direct relation to how that nation interacts with Israel. If a nation blesses Israel, God blesses that nation. If a nation curses Israel, He curses that nation. It is that simple. “AS YOU DID TO ISRAEL IT WILL BE DONE TO YOU”. (Obadiah 1:15)

 

Why are we persistently interfering with the “apple of God’s eye?” Why are our leaders repeatedly trying to get Israel to divide up her covenantal land? Why do they not see that each time they interfere with Jerusalem and Israel they simultaneously witness destruction in one American city after another?

 

Fires are raging in Southern California and destroying well over 1,000 homes. Almost a million Californians have been evacuated. Atlanta City warns that they will run out of water in less than three months – a drought of biblical proportions (their words). Hurricane Katrina destroyed New Orleans – an entire U.S. port city. They still haven’t recovered. Is God trying to tell us something?

Is it any wonder that disasters threaten thousands of American homes – this time in Southern California? Up to 850,000 residents have been evacuated to flee from the destructive fires raging all throughout the State. Fox News said,  that it is the largest evacuation since the Civil War. – Just like Hurricane Katrina, thousands are fleeing for their lives while their homes are threatened or destroyed.

 

As the Bush administration pressures Israel to “divide” her land and give up more land to Palestinians, Americans are losing their own land and properties in a biblical inferno. Coincidence?

 

Again? How many times must we suffer harm before we learn not to poke sticks in the “apple of God’s eye” – Israel?

Noah warned the people for 120 years prior to the great flood. Before God judged the ancient Canaanites, He warned them for 400 years. He warned Israel, with prophet after prophet, for close to two hundred years before the Babylonian captivity. – G-D is now warning America.”

McTernan said: “At some point, the warning-judgments cross over to destruction-judgments. The destruction-judgments will break the nation and stop the interference with G-D’s plan for Israel. There is no recovery from destruction-judgments. It appears Hurricane Katrina was the first destruction-judgment.”

“Is the Southern California inferno the second judgment? Will the Atlanta drought be the third? What is next?”

“God takes His covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob very seriously. The judgments begin after a nation hardens its heart and is adamant against His word. It appears that the rebellion and unbelief in G-D’s word has now taken America to the brink of destruction-judgments.”

 

The prophet Isaiah warned us that in the last days God is going to turn the world upside down…(Isaiah 24:1). According to this prophecy, sudden judgment is coming upon the earth, and it will change everything in a single hour. Within that short span, the whole world will witness fast falling destruction upon a city and a nation, and the world will never be the same.”

On Fox news television the other morning, I heard California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger state, …”One minute the home is there…and in less than an hour the fire has destroyed it! In one hour everything’s gone!”
