OCCUPIERS!

End the Unjust Occupation JPEG

Israel is accused and accursed every day by Muslims and many nations for being occupiers. Yet, isn’t this exactly what God commanded them to do? Therefore the condemnation is not of Israel, but is really condemning God.

“For you will cross over the Jordan and go in to possess the land which Yehovah your God is giving you, and you will possess it and dwell in it.” Deuteronomy 11:31

Another valid translation of “possess” is “occupy”. Israel is not evil for occupying the Land, they are obedient to the will of Yehovah. This reminds me of Psalm 83 which we reference often as the Psalm 83 War. It is a powerful prayer request to God for victory over Israel’s enemies. The premise of their request is that Israel is under attack primarily because they identify with God.

Do not keep silent, O God! ​​Do not hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God! ​​For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. ​​They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. ​​They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” ​​For they have consulted together with one consent; they form a confederacy against You: Psalm 83:1-5

This is a completely valid basis for appealing for God’s help. As you know, the next verses list the surrounding nations. Then the method of victory is described in the last section of the Psalm: “Deal with them as with Midian,” which refers to Gideon’s story where God turned the Midianites to fight against one another resulting in the deaths of 120,000 soldiers without Gideon’s 300 killing one. Later, Gideon caught and killed the last 15,000 who had fled with their kings. See: Judges 8:10

Of course, my point is that we in 2018 are in the same scenario. Israel is surrounded by enemies (the same ones) who want to kill Israel because they really hate Yehovah. It is a religious war and always has been. Again the Psalm 83 prayer applies. Only God can deliver His people once again. Pray Psalm 83 often and passionately.

And don’t be thrown off by the accusation: OCCUPIERS! That is exactly what Israel must do in all of the Land that Yehovah God has promised.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Les, do you think the lack of rain in Israel could have anything to do with Zechariah 14:17 ?

This verse applies literally to the time of Jesus’ reign from Jerusalem when He returns. However, it also stands as a general principle to any nation that does not honor Yehovah (specifically coming up to the Feast of Tabernacles). Of course that includes Israel, which has much present ungodliness in spite of the unmistakable blessing, restoration and favor since God turned the page. From 70 A.D. to 1948, they never won a war. From 1948 till now they have not lost one. The severe judgement of Romans 11:22-23 is now the process of grafting them back into their own tree as they believe. There is a steady move of Israelis toward God in many levels of society.

The Kingdom of God is going to be a imperialistic Zionist empire. It will be a small But all powerful Kingdom. This Zionist enity will have an Emporer who will not take their complaining well. He will first occupy the world nations and then He will ruled them with a rod of iron. I would recommend these nations get used to this new reality or continue to complain and get broken into vessels of a porter. I suggest they kiss the Son. Psalm
