Israel Betrayed by U.S.? – Part Two

Refusal of the current American presidential administration to acknowledge that God has any say one way or the other in the affairs of man, much less any business meddling in the conduct of the American state department’s dealing with Israel and its antagonists, is a foregone conclusion. After all, Mr. Obama has himself stated that America is not a Christian nation.

I must say that I agree with this president on that one point. The United States was never a “Christian” nation, in the sense that America turned en masse to total commitment to following Jesus Christ. That has never happened. However, this country, since its earliest stages of planning by the founding fathers, has had woven into its national documents of inception Judeo-Christian principles of God’s prescription for conducting life and government.

Based upon that easily provable truth–because all one has to do is to cursorily scan the founding documents to understand biblical influence–it’s easy to know that America is a nation under providential watchfulness, to say the very least. God, in starkly plain language, spoke through prophetic omniscience to what will happen when anyone, be it individual or corporate, deals treacherously with His chosen people. Therefore, for anyone–including the president of the United States or any other member of the government of this nation–to ignore what is said about interacting with Israel in the Bible, from which the founding fathers so obviously gleaned wisdom to form this nation, is foolhardiness.

I realize stating that governmental leaders don’t recognize God in their governing isn’t a profound revelation, because all of humanistic government ignores the Creator of all things. I just wanted to get the fact stated as to the real crux of the problem regarding lack of lasting peace in the Middle East and the world. The administration and the state department, it is obvious, gives God’s Word on the matter of Israel no weight whatever in considering policy toward the Jewish state. They forge ahead, setting timelines for producing a two-state solution to the “Palestinian problem” as they see it.

Mideast envoy at the time George Mitchell once stated that he saw the problem of Israel’s making peace with Palestinian leadership as something that must be done within two years. The former senate majority leader, chosen by President Obama to deal with the differences between the Palestinian Authority and Israeli leadership, made it clear how he–thus, how the Obama administration–viewed the hold-up to peace in the region.

Mitchell got in a bit of trouble at that time by declaring that the U.S. would withhold support if Israel didn’t go along with the 2-state solution.

The Israeli government at the time told him the U.S. could withhold support. Israel didn’t have to borrow to take care of itself. The Obama Administration quickly back-pedaled, but the damage to relations was already done –the cat out of the bag, so to speak regarding how the president, himself, thinks about America’s long-time ally.

All of the back-pedaling the Administration could or can now do cannot obfuscate the truth. It continues to  try to hide its disdain for Israel’s perceived obstinacy in preventing this president from having a clear pathway to establishing the desired two-state configuration.

Israel is always met with intransigence when dealing with the Palestinian Authority, as with most all among the Islamic community. The Israeli leadership is growing weary of the one-sided abusiveness, and of the pressures from the American and international leaders who insist Israel is the problem in disrupting the “Roadmap to Peace.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in expressing his feelings on the matter, said, “It is the Palestinian Authority that needs to change its ways–certainly not the Israeli government.”

Obama, it is obvious to this observer, continues to see the Jewish state as the holdup to his getting glory from making the perpetually elusive peace the international community seeks. He recently stated that he would push harder than ever to get a peace deal in the Middle East, once the mid-March, 2015 Israeli elections were done.

To answer the question within the article’s title–“Israel betrayed by the U.S.?” –it seems for now that substantial influence within the U.S. Congress is saying, “No.”

It is encouraging to see the reaction to see the reaction to the Israeli prime minister’s speech before the joint session on Tuesday, March 3, 2015. He received tremendous applause for most every point he made. He did not back down from his responsibility to protect his nation against the growing Iranian threat. Most in the chamber obviously agreed with his take wholeheartedly.

If America joins the rest of earth’s nations in the gathering against Israel, as prophesied by Zechariah in Zechariah12:1-3, her betrayal will mean America’s doom. All nations who come against the Jewish state, God says, will be cut to pieces. Israel, on the other hand, will remain no matter what, the God of heaven declares in the strongest possible terminology.

“This is what the Lord says, ‘He who appoints the sun to shine by day, Who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar–the Lord Almighty is His Name; Only if these ordinances vanish from My sight,’ declares the Lord, ‘will the descendants of Israel ever cease to be a nation before Me'” (Jeremiah 31:35-36).

    Hi Terry,
    What do you think of the O.’s admin.
    declassifying Israel’s nuclear program for the world to see? What do you think will be the result of this from a prophetic standpoint?

    Thank you!

    • Terry James says:

      This appears to be yet another act against Benjamin Netanyahu, personally, that indicates the hubris that dominates this president’s psychological/spiritual make-up.

      It betrays the fact that he thinks that Israel –like he thinks America– is the problem that threatens world peace.

      He has a reprobate mind, as defined by Paul in Romans chapter 1, and, unless he genuinely repents, he has sealed his own fate, in terms of where he spends eternity, as well as puts himself in personal jeopardy, while in the world today.

      Whether it portends equally dire things for the U.S. as a nation depends upon how God’s people in America –Christians (truly born again)– react in repentance at this time when the nation is Judgement bound along with all nations of the world because of rebellion.

      • Susan says:

        Thank you for your response, Terry, which I agree with 100%. I’m not very optimistic that the Christians of America (of which I don’t think there are many truly born again) will repent. I look around and see how everything that would’ve been considered evil is now glorified and vice versa. It’s truly astounding. I think we’re past the point of no return since once momentum gets going in a certain direction, it tend to compound. Unfortunately, the momentum I’m seeing is of the bad type. To extend on my original question to you, do you think that the
        revelation of I.’s nuclear program by our country could be a contributing factor to the initiation of the Psalm 83 battle? It seems as if the whole Middle East is gearing up for something big….

      • Terry James says:

        Although Bill Salus and I are great friends, and he is the one who brought this presumptive “prophecy” to the forefront, I don’t agree that Psalm 83 is a prophecy about a war involving Israel and its enemy neighbors.

        I know all about the arguments involving the inner and outer circle enemies of Israel. But, I think these are all included in the Ezekiel 38-39 Gog-Magog invasion. “Many peoples with thee” as that prophecy puts it includes all of the nations that the imprecatory prayer mentions.

        That’s what Psalm 83 is about. It is a prayer by Israel for God to defeat Israel’s surrounding enemies. God will answer that when Gog invades over the mountains of Israel. God will completely destroy all but one-sixth of Israel’s enemies at that time.

        So, no. I don’t believe the exposure of Israel’s nuclear program has anything to do, in the sense you mention, with Psalm 83.

    Thank you for your perspective on Psalm 83. I have complete respect for your opinion….What I’m wondering and maybe I’m looking at it in the wrong context, but what do you think will be the factor(s) that will create the “land of unwalled villages, peaceful people who dwell safely, dwelling without walls”, etc. that will be the setting when the Ez. 38-39 invasion occurs? Thank you!

    • Terry James says:

      It will likely be as a result of the covenant –made with Antichrist’s confirmation (of that peace agreement, following the Rapture Daniel 9: 26-27). However, that’s just a guess that has been made by many prophecy scholars/students. I tend to believe that that peace agreement will cause Israel to let down its guard as described in Ezekiel 38-39.

    What you said makes sense. Thank you for your incredible insight! May God bless you! Susan
