The occupant of the Oval Office declined to meet with the Prime Minister of Israel regarding Iran. Within a few hours the US Embassies in Egypt and Libya are attacked, leaving the US Ambassador to Libya and three other US officials there dead. The attacks rage on from the very people that the US president spent millions of taxpayer funds to help establish “democracy” in their countries less than a year ago. Most would explain this as a coincidence, blaming a US filmmaker’s “hurting” of Muslim’s feelings with his portrayal of Muhammad–as did the Embassy in Cairo, and similar statements from US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the White House. Prophetically, however, the events may be related.
The Bible states in several places that coming against Israel will result in bad things happening. This is a prophetic reality. YHVH says to Abraham in Genesis 12:2-3, “I will make of you a great nation…I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse anyone who curses you.” In Zechariah 12:3 YHVH says, “I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone and all those who burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces.” Again in 12:9, “And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” Near Jerusalem is where the Messiah left the earth, and Jerusalem is where He will return. And Revelation 19:21 says those that were against him “were slain with the sword of him…”
Throughout the Bible, in context, there is an undeniable relationship between Jerusalem, the Hebrew people, and YHVH, the one true God. When YHVH judged the Israelites, He often used nations to do so. But those nations–in most every case Arabs and Ishmaelites–were also judged thereafter due to their harsh treatment of YHVH’s people. Serious students of the Bible who practice exegesis interpretation understand this relationship. Bill Koenig in his book, “Eye to Eye: Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel,” documents the natural, economic and political disasters that occur in America when its leadership comes against Israel. These events, as Koenig reports, are more than coincidence. They are prophetic.
The rift between the occupant of the Oval Office and Israel goes deep. The US president was raised a Muslim and his actions from the very beginning of his administration have been to support the advancement of Islam. Prophecy indicates that Islamic nations will unite and come against Israel in the Last Day. Throughout the Bible there are examples where YHVH judges the nations that cause harm to Israel. One such example is found in Jeremiah 51:49-50, “As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth. Ye that have escaped the sword, go away, stand not still: remember YHVH afar off, and let Jerusalem come into your mind.” Yes, let Jerusalem come into the minds of America and her leaders for these days are burdened with layers of prophetic events.
