Commentary By: Gordon King
Israel has been the center of focus for decades now and even more so as time moves on, with the city of Jerusalem at the center of it all. Doesn’t it seem sort of odd that Israel the nation of the Jews is the center of attention in the world? I mean if the Jews or Israel have no real significance to the world in which we live then why such a fuss over them?! Jerusalem in Hebrew means the City of Peace, yet there doesn’t seem to be a lot of peace surrounding Jerusalem does there?
Tensions in the world are rising and most of it revolving around the tiny nation of Israel. The nations surrounding Israel are becoming much more volatile and threatening, specifically Syria (which is now controlled by Russia and Iran), Turkey, and Iran itself. They are more aggressive not only towards Israel but also towards the United States of America, why is that? It’s because America supports and stands behind Israel, that’s why. These are also the key nations that attack Israel during the Ezekiel 38 War! Hmmm, interesting.
Another thing that we see happening throughout the world is a rise in antisemitism including here in America! It’s a sign of the increased tensions in the world, increased tensions once again focused on Israel and the Jews!
The world is focused on Israel, Jerusalem, and the Jews for only one reason, and that reason is that they are God’s chosen people! That’s it, no other reason, they are the least of nations, of the smallest people groups in the world, yet are the most hated and the most persecuted, and there is no reason for it other than them being chosen by God Almighty to bring forth the savior of the world! And the really ironic thing is that most of them, the Jewish people as a whole, don’t even believe in the Savior that they brought forth!!! How odd is that?!!! Yet the world continues to hate them.
We are hearing nations (specifically Iran) who have for decades threatened the very existence of Israel and the Jews, nations that have spewed virulent hatred of Israel, now proclaiming that all they have ever wanted was peace in the Middle East! Are you kidding me?!!! They say that they have never wanted war, that they are a peaceful nation. If you believe that they I have a bridge that I would like to sell you!
We are hearing lies, the twisting of the truth, all out bald-faced lies!
Most of the nations surrounding Israel do not want peace with Israel, the Palestinians don’t want peace with Israel, they don’t want a peace plan, what they want are the Jews driven out of Israel forever! There are no plans for peace that will work in the Middle East, I’m sorry to have to say that but it’s the truth! Most proclaim that what is needed is a Two-State Solution, but I say all that will do is create another State that will continue to threaten the very existence of the Jews! The Palestinians were given the Gaza Strip by the Jews, and what has happened since? The creation of a Palestinian State dead set on annihilating the Jewish people! That is their goal, their purpose in life.
There will be no real peace in the Middle East until after the second coming of Jesus Christ! Yet the people are soon to be deceived by the coming of the Lawless One, the Antichrist, who shall confirm a covenant with many for seven years, this shall be a false peace, a false sense of security. During this time the Antichrist shall proclaim to be God and will persecute the Jews as well as the Christians.
Doesn’t it seem odd to you that both the Jews and the Christians are the two most persecuted groups in the world today? This is a precursor of what is to come during the Tribulation period.
Most people are deceived, they cannot see the writing on the wall, or if they can see it they do not understand it! The increased tensions in the world, specifically in the Middle East, specifically against Israel and the Jews are signs, they are signs of the times, signs that signify the second coming of Jesus Christ!
The Elite are now focused on bringing the world together under one government, using “global warming”, “the environment”, “the economy”, and “peace and safety” as ploys to unite the world together. As I recall didn’t Nimrod do similar things? And it shall come to pass that one day soon the world shall be united once again under one ruler, under the rule and reign of the Antichrist!
The stage is being set folks, increased tensions, increased war and rumors of war, increased hatred and persecution, increased lies and deceptions. I don’t believe that it’s too far away, and if it’s not too far away then just how much closer are we to the rapture of the church?!
It’s not too late to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior if you haven’t already!
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.“
God didn’t just come for one group of people, not for just one nation, but for all people, for everyone living on earth! His will is for all to come to repentance and accept His Son Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! God didn’t choose Israel in order to only save Israel, but so that the Savior, Jesus Christ, would come through them to the world!
2 Peter 3:9
“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.“
Do not be deceived by what is happening in the world today, but rather know the truth from scripture and be encouraged by it! Rightly divide the word of God and know the truth, compare what is happening in the world today with scripture. We are told by God to watch and be ready, are we doing that?!
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
‘Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you.
7 Peace be within your walls,
Prosperity within your palaces.”
8 For the sake of my brethren and companions,
I will now say, “Peace be within you.”
9 Because of the house of the Lord our God
I will seek your good.‘
Jerusalem, the City of Peace, the city where God has put His name, the city of the Prince of Peace Himself, Jesus Christ!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
