The View From Israel

etinger‘Don’t Make Us America’s Next Mistake’ Expert warns America: before pushing peace deal, remember Iraq, Iran, Libya and Egypt. The U.S. needs to take a serious look at history before continuing on its current path, former ambassador and Mideast expert Yoram Ettinger has warned. Speaking to Arutz Sheva, Ettinger recalled a long string of American diplomatic and military failures in the Middle East – and warned that current U.S. policy could make Israel the latest in a chain of mistakes.

Several years ago, there was a great point made by Lance Lambert, a Jewish believer in Yeshua as the Messiah. He is a well-respected senior Bible teacher in the Land. His declaration was simple:Israel looks pitifully to America for her salvation.” However, that is beginning to change dramatically, as this article reveals. Israel is waking up to a new reality. They cannot trust America. That is a good thing for Israel, because she must look to Yehovah for survival, not to any man. On the other hand, it is bad for America. We have documented many times the Genesis principle that those who bless Israel are blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed.

I am glad to say that millions of Americans including Congress are still pro-Israel. It is the Administration that has turned away from blessing. It has consequences for our country, and it should motivate us at the polls. My household rates support of Israel as one of our highest priorities when choosing our elected officials. Please pray about your support of Israel in this US election year.

Here is another quote from the article linked above: The U.S. also supported the Islamic revolution in Iran, then supported Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein until his invasion of Kuwait, Ettinger said. PLO head Yasser Arafat was welcome in the White House, and American leaders – including Kerry – treated Syrian dictator Bashar Assad as a peace-seeking leader with whom Israel should negotiate, until the bloody Syrian civil war ended their support.

Ettinger listed other failures of American policy as well, including Hamas’ ascent to power in Gaza – which followed American pressure to include the terrorist group in PA elections – the Muslim Brotherhood’s status in Egypt, and the violence in Libya following the American-backed overthrow of the previous government in that country.

“Whoever is impressed by the opinions given by American Secretaries of State and Presidents should look at their track records,” Ettinger urged. Doing so “will make him think twice about following their recommendations,” he concluded. ‘Don’t Make Us America’s Next Mistake’

Israel must transition from trusting in the United States, and for that matter, even from the Israel Defense Forces, to totally trust in the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob.

Now I know that Yehovah saves His anointed; ​​He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.  ​​Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of Yehovah our God. ​​They have bowed down and fallen; but we have risen and stand upright. Save, Yehovah! ​​May the King answer us when we call. Psalm 20:6-9

When you pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for rain in abundance, remember to pray for wisdom from above for her leaders and her people. We do not blindly support every decision of the Israeli government, but we do support the eternal purpose of the God of Israel to bless and restore and protect her in these last days of the age. Finally, we pray for the day when they will recognize Jesus as their Messiah and the Son of God.

(As is my custom, I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!)

Good helpful column, Les. I’ve had a copy of “Christ, the Cross, the Church”, by Hile, Lambert and Kaung since it came out in print. I need to re-read it now.

Grace and peace, Diane
