Dry Bones No to Annexation

This week, eclipsed by the violence, virus, and virtue signalling in media coverage, Israel is at a momentous crossroads of history. Several days of meetings in Washington will determine future borders of Israel.

Trump, top aides to decide this week whether to back Netanyahu’s annexation –  ‘Decisive’ White House meeting, to be attended by Pompeo, Kushner, Friedman, said set to determine whether US okays PM’s July 1 plan for sovereignty over settlements, Jordan Valley

Pompeo: Sovereignty is Israel’s decision to make – US Sec. of State says decisions of sovereignty are for Israel to make, moments after UN, Arab League call on Israel to abandon its plans.

The decision by the U.S. will directly affect blessing or judgement on our nation according Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Judea and Samaria are called the “West Bank” by world governments. Yet the Bible clearly includes them in the land Yehovah God granted to Israel. For years I have been saying the issue is not the West Bank, but the East Bank. First, how many rivers are know only by their western banks? Man, in his perpetual rebellion against God, rejects the very solution for Middle East wars proclaimed by God. The peace plan proposed by President Trump is rejected by the usual cast of characters, but particularly by King Abdullah of Jordan. The danger is all his, because he finds himself resisting Almighty God Yehovah. (This is found in Ezekiel 36; and is explained in detail in my book Speak to the Dirt! available on Amazon and also Kindle.)

So Jordan backs the PLO in rejecting Trump ‘Deal of the Century’ Jordan’s rejection of the Trump Plan could see Trump dealing with Jordan the way he dealt with the PLO’s rejection. (Read this op-ed from David Singer for an accurate explanation.)

This is not political, but spiritual. The tide of history has turned from God’s severe judgment of Israel, to His prophesied restoration, blessing, and favor. From 70 AD to 1948 Israel never won a war, but from 1948 to the present Israel has not lost a war. What changed? God Himself turned the page. I have written extensively about the spectacular prophecy of Psalm 102 which describes the Holocaust in graphic detail followed by this critical declaration we now see fulfilled in our rear-view mirror:

You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come. Psalm 102:13

This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created may praise Yehovah. Psalm 102:18

The original Hebrew text for verse 18 is amazing. The phrase “generation to come” is mistranslated in almost Bibles. The correct Hebrew is “dowr” דּוֹר which means generation, but the key word is ” ‘acharown” which means “last.” So, Psalm 102 was especially written for the last generation. Before the Holocaust we would not understand the great prophecy of Israel’s favor. But now we see clearly that we are living in the time of God’s restoration and favor to Israel.

My point is simple. No matter what all the nations do, they will never succeed in blocking Yehovah’s eternal plan. The question for us if we will be on the right side of God’s history.

Pray for the decisions this week, which will directly affect the peace of Jerusalem!

Palestinian Confusion

8 02 2020

Dry Bones curiouser

The Trump peace deal has exposed deep differences among Palestinian Arabs in Israel. My last post exposed the lie about “Palestinians.” The above cartoon from my friend Yaakov Kirschen points out the dilemma facing Arab Palestinians in the West Bank. The Bible calls this area Judea and Samaria. Here is more from a recent article.

The Real Reason Arabs In Israel Do Not Want to Live In ‘Palestine’The main reason Arabs in Israel are afraid of becoming Palestinian citizens is because they know that the Palestinian state will be anything but democratic. Many Arab citizens of Israel see how Palestinians living under the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank and Hamas in the Gaza Strip are subject to human rights violations on a daily basis. In Israel, Arab citizens participate in the general elections and have their own representatives in the Knesset. In the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, Palestinians have been deprived of free and fair elections since January 2006.

President Abbas of the Palestinian Authority is now in the 16th year of his four year term. I’m not kidding. He is 84, in failing health, and has named no successor. He has said he will die before giving up any part of “Palestine” which he says is “from the river to the sea.” This is the chant heard on college campuses around the world. Don’t hold your breath waiting for him to make peace with Israel.

We need to pray for the helpless Palestinian people. They need the Messiah Yeshua as much as the rest of us. God is blessing Israel and will increase favor. The best hope for Palestinians is to be granted Israeli citizenship and to worship Yehovah, God of Israel.

“Thus you shall divide this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Israel. It shall be that you will divide it by lot as an inheritance for yourselves, and for the strangers who dwell among you and who bear children among you. They shall be to you as native-born among the children of Israel; they shall have an inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. And it shall be that in whatever tribe the stranger dwells, there you shall give him his inheritance,” says the Lord Yehovah. Ezekiel 47:21-23

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for seasonal rains.

Palestinian History Lesson

5 02 2020

Dry Bones Palestinians

This cartoon is totally true. Palestine was a generic term for the land area of Israel imposed by the Romans in the first Century. There has never been an actual country called Palestine at any time in history. The Jerusalem Post newspaper was originally the Palestine Post until Israel became a nation. The Palestine Liberation Org (PLO) under Yasser Arafat co-opted the term in 1964. Before that, residents of Israel were Jews and Arabs. By creating a new group he claimed victimhood for his followers. Even today there are nearly two million Arab citizens of Israel, most of whom are happy to be “Israelis.” They are better off than most Arabs in any Muslim country.

The Arab/Palestinian people would like to make peace with Israel. It is their radical jihadist leaders that prevent every peace plan. When we pray for the peace of Jerusalem we are praying for Arabs and Jews alike. Every human being who receives the Messiah Yeshua as the Son of God and Savior is welcomed into the family of God. We continue to pray for the future merger of the “one new man” where we all become one in Him.

For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galations 3:26-29 

For as many of you as were immersed into Messiah have put on Messiah. There is neither Yehudi nor Yevanit, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Messiah Yeshua. If you are Messiah’s, then you are Avraham’s seed and heirs according to promise.Galations 3:26-29 HNV
Finally, the distinctions listed still exist in this world, but the message is that we all have
equal access to relationship with God through His Son, the Messiah Yeshua.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.
