U.S. Not Involved, But…

1 03 2023

Arrogance is one of the most frustrating contradictions Israel faces. The Biden administration views Israel as a vassal state subject to the direction of the all wise U.S. State Department. After 3,000 years of history (about 2,750 more than America), who do we think we are to order Israel to conform to our demands? Israel is an independent and sovereign nation raised from the dead by the miraculous faithfulness of Yehovah God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is now rising among the sea of nations by His almighty hand. As we look at these recent headlines, consider the arrogance of the Biden position.

US Ambassador Nides: We aren’t getting involved but Netanyahu has to slow things down – US Ambassador Thomas Nides discussed Israel’s judicial reform bill saying the only thing that connects Israel and the US is democracy.

First, he is wrong about democracy being the only connection. Far more critical is our mutual Judeo-Christian moral values derived from the Bible. Second, he is wrong to oppose Israeli government directives regarding court reform and settlements. That is Israel’s internal business.

EU blasts Shechem operation: Use of force must be in full respect of international law – EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs calls on both sides to restore calm following IDF counterterrorism operation in Shechem.

First, Israel’s ongoing battle against terrorism is defending Israel’s very existence. The terrorists sware to kill all the Jews and drive Israel into the sea. Israel’s response is not subject to “international law,” when life and death issues are at stake. Second, he uses the ridiculous charge that “both sides” should restore calm. This suggests that both are equally to blame. Remember the famous quote from the late Golda Meir – Israel’s prime minister 49 years ago – who famously said, “If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.” JPost

Israel constantly faces the temptation to be “a nation like the other nations,” but God has made them unique, with a sovereign purpose in the earth. Again and again Israel fell to the temptation. One major mistake was demanding a king like other nations that led to the disaster of King Saul who was removed by God. The fact was that they already had a king, Yehovah God Himself! Samuel pleaded with them to no avail.

Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, “No, but we will have a king over us, that we also may be like all the nations, and that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.”  1 Samuel 8:19-20

I often say that Saul was not the first king of Israel, God was! Once God allowed a king, He showed the character difference by following Saul with King David. What was the difference? When Saul was king, man was king. When David was king, Yehovah God was king. Saul did what he wanted. David always checked with God to do His will and God honored David.

“He raised up for them David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.’ From this man’s seed, according to the promise, God raised up for Israel a Savior—Jesus.”  Acts 13:22-23

Pray that Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu will not give in to ungodly demands of the U.S., the EU, the UN, or any other nation.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, seasonal rains. and the rain of the Holy Spirit especially on the youth!
