Impeach Isaiah 45

29 01 2020

Deal of Century

The “Deal of the Century” and impeachment show an amazing convergence of Bible prophecy and geo-political realities. Congresswoman Maxine Waters (Dem-CA) is best known for her slogan: “Impeach 45!” Would you believe that the demand is far deeper than politics? Here is my view of the peace deal.

Yesterday President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu announced the new peace plan which was rejected by the Palestinians before it was even announced. The context of Isaiah 45 is key. Many of us saw the connection between the Cyrus prophecy and Trump before the last election. Yet, I only now made the link to the Maxine slogan. She wants to impeach the 45th President, but there is a deeper demonic agenda to block God’s purpose proclaimed in Isaiah 45. Yehovah used the ancient Cyrus of Persia to release the captive Jews to return to their land and rebuild the Temple and Jerusalem.

The modern day Cyrus has indeed accomplished more for Israel than any other U.S. President, and the devil doesn’t like it. Whatever you think of Trump, he somehow has managed to occupy a profound place in God’s purpose for Israel. So what about the peace deal? There is opposition from the Left and the Right. Is it the anti-Christ peace deal?

I don’t think so. Some worry that it includes a Palestinian state. But that is only if they meet certain staged milestones, and then only after ten years. They have rejected every other offer since 1948, even when promised 97% of the West Bank. This offer is for 70%. There is an old (true) saying that the “Palestinians never miss an opportunity… to miss an opportunity.” This is more than political. It is spiritual. The anti-Israel principality of Islam has never wanted part of Israel. It wants ALL of the land, AND the genocide of the Jews. It will never accept anything less.

Does the new plan offer to divide the land? No, the land is already divided. The plan allows Israel to immediately extend sovereignty over the Jordan Valley and other areas, which actually expands Israel’s borders. The plan is genius. It exposes the absolute intransigence of the Palestinian leaders.

PA President calls Trump ‘Dog, son of a B**ch’Orders PA security forces not to interfere with ‘clashes’ nor to arrive to conflict zones. “He won’t threaten me. In the time I have left to live I won’t be a traitor. I said no to the Deal of the Century – and I will continue to say no. I have refused to talk to him and I’ll bear the consequences, no matter what they may be,” added Abbas.

President Trump’s timing is not a desperate attempt to distract from the impeachment. The impeachment is a desperate attempt to keep Trump from fulfilling his Isaiah 45 function.

“Thus says Yehovah to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held— To subdue nations before him and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut: I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, Yehovah, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel. For Jacob My servant’s sake, ​and Israel My elect, I have even called you by your name; I have named you, though you have not known Me. I am Yehovah, and there is no other; there is no God besides Me. I will gird you, though you have not known Me, That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting that there is none besides Me. I am Yehovah, and there is no other; I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, Yehovah, do all these things.’ … I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways; he shall build My city and let My exiles go free, not for price nor reward,” says Yehovah of hosts. Isaiah 45:1-7, 13

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Follow-up to Isaiah 45 | Elisha Vision - Commentary

[…] week I posted my commentary on the impeachment, related to the Trump/Cyrus links in Isaiah 45. Please read it if you missed it the first time. But I want to add three particular points from verse […]

A few questions,

In v.7 there seems to be a rhetorical shift, wherein YHWH is no longer speaking to Cyrus, but has turned soteriological and messianic (verse 17 in particular, “you have been saved with an everlasting salvation.”) with that in mind, why is it necessary to apply v.7 to Cyrus, as it seems YHWH is speaking of His Holy One?

Second, is it a forgone conclusion that Israel here refers to the physical nation? YHWH Himself speaks of this nation in vv.24-25 and speaks of them being justified in their entirety, wouldn’t it follow from that interpretation that all citizens of the state of Israel will be justified in the sight of God? If so, how does that square with the NT definition of a New Israel formed from the “Circumcision” and the “Uncircumcision”?

#1 In verse 1 God calls Cyrus His Messiah. This is shocking to Isaiah, but God says He calls Cyrus by name (3 times) so there is no mistake. He explains in v. 4 that he named Cyrus for Jacob/Israel’s sake. How could God use a Gentile? How amazing it would have been to listen to Daniel reading and explaining to King Cyrus the prophecy of Isaiah concerning his place in the plan of Yehovah for the return of the exiles and restoration of Jerusalem!
He repeats to Cyrus that “you have not known me.”
Verse 13 again is about Cyrus and his role. Please refer to the next blog: “Follow-up to Isaiah 45”.
#2 My simple answer is to compare with the NT “elect.” Baal worshipers, rebels, immoral rejectors of God will never be part of the eternal Israel. This is true also of the church rebels in apostasy. All Israel and all the elect will be saved. We are talking about the “one new man” of Ephesians. Absolutely true that God looks at the circumcision of the heart. I suggest that this was always His view. It is critical to understand that Yehovah keeps His covenant with every OT believer who fits the Abrahamic faith of Rom. 4. The church is not the new Israel as in replacement theology, but rather is the wild branches grafted into God’s eternal plan to change every man from Jacob (crafty, sneaky) to Israel, (Prince with God!)
This can only be accomplished through faith in the Messiah, the Promised One, Yeshua ben Yehovah. Abraham believed in Jesus, before He came! It is so much easier to believe now with all the history. Will every Jew be saved? No. Will every “Christian” be saved? No. Many Israeli’s will come to reality that Yeshua is the Messiah and Son of God unto salvation. All Israel and all of the Church will be saved, but by God’s definition, not man’s.
As Blaise Pascal once said: Sorry this letter is so long, I didn’t have time to right a shorter one.
