Biden, Israel, and Peace Prospects

Prefacing this with the fact that the election is far from settled, with the possibility of the Supreme Court having to weigh in, I wanted to look for a moment at what a Joe Biden administration would portend. Particularly, how the relationship between Israel and the United States would be changed is an issue that bears serious consideration.

First to think on is that, according to Mr. Biden’s own words over a number of months during the campaign, America will immediately rejoin the Paris Climate Accord. That means that the nation would again be brought into the drive for globalist control. The US Treasury and other assets would be again available for the internationalists to plunder at will.

With the House of Representatives controlling much of the money outlay and with a president who believes in the new world order objectives, there would be few safeguards against the imposition of a global tax against US citizens. We would pay for our “excessive” carbon emissions and other infractions of the PCA.

Our temperatures in our homes would eventually be governed by our would-be global masters. Fuel prices for our cars—and for all forms of transportation—would skyrocket. At the same time, America would become totally dependent on other nations for any fossil fuel imports.

All that is disconcerting to anyone who loves our nation and its independence from confiscatory influences from outside our borders. Added to the controls by the new world order forces would be the influx of millions of immigrants, mostly illegal, whom Mr. Biden’s political party would use to create a voter base that can never be overcome by any opposition.

Imposition of a one-payer health insurance, government run, would mean that the citizens would eventually lose private insurance coverage and would instead pay heavy duties in premiums in order to pay for the government programs that would first serve those same illegals and their needs. We would be put on waiting lists that would make today’s waits in doctors’ offices seem but a few minutes in length.

We could look at dozens of ways our lives might change under uncontrolled impositions by a Biden administration. But to look at all of this from the Bible prophecy perspective, we only have to consider how America’s relationship with Israel would change.

We remember how the Obama-Biden administration dealt with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Recall how, when Netanyahu came to call at the White House, upon Obama’s request, the president had him enter from the rear portions of the White House. Then, after only a few minutes of talking with the Prime Minister, Obama abruptly left, saying he was going to dinner upstairs with family.

It was a snub of the first order—a thing unheard of in civil diplomatic interaction.

So with that track record, and one that is much more egregious in some cases, can we expect anything better from a President Biden?

But the real worry in regard to a Biden administration will be the dangers to which Israel will almost certainly be exposed.

Again, Mr. Biden has stated on numerous occasions that he will return to old ways in the matter of America and Israel. Of specific worry are his statements that we will return to the “Iran Deal,” which President Trump immediately exited once coming into office.

Remember the reported $150 billion in cash that Obama sent to a runway concourse in Iran, to the Ayatollahs’ anti-Israel regime. It was stated that it was money that was wrongfully kept that had belonged to Iran during the Bush years. This allegation has never been fully explained or proven.

Mr. Biden wants to bring America again into the “nuclear deal” between Iran and much of the Western world, which once included the US. The following news excerpt tells how this has our strongest ally in a great deal of consternation.

Democratic candidate for president Joe Biden’s position on the Iran Deal could lead to war between Israel and Iran, Settlements Minister Teach Hanegbi warned on Wednesday night.

“Biden has said openly for a long time that he will go back to the nuclear agreement,” Hanegbi said. “I see that as something that will lead to a confrontation between Israel and Iran.”

The minister told Channel 13 News that he, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and most Israelis saw the Iran Deal signed by the Obama administration in 2015 as “mistaken—and that’s an understatement.”

“If Biden stays with that policy, there will, in the end, be a violent confrontation between Israel and Iran,” he stated…

[Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Zvi] Hauser argued that “today, everyone understands the agreement wasn’t enough to prevent” Iran from developing nuclear weapons, and “countries of the free world know this is their test” – to stop Tehran from doing so.

A nuclear Iran would trigger an arms race, in which Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Egypt would develop their own nuclear weapons, Hauser warned.

“No one sees Iran’s behavior, creating instability in the Middle East, and thinks its right to let them win,” he added. “Neither the Americans nor Israel will allow a nuclear Iran.” (“Israeli Minister Warns of War if Biden Returns to Iran Deal:

‘If Biden stays with that policy, there will, in the end, be a violent confrontation between Israel and Iran,’” Lahav Harkov, Jerusalem Post, Israel News, November 5, 2020)

However things shape with regard to the election outcomes, one thing is certain. God’s hand is in all of it. We can’t help worrying as human beings concerned with the well-being of our families and our nation. But as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we know the ultimate outcome is glorious beyond all imagination.

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9)

    In the face of what this nation and this world will be facing beginning next year, it is difficult not to be concerned. I know I am. Nevertheless, I take solace in the passages which follow. I hope everyone who reads them will find similar comfort in them as well.

    Matthew {6:33} [Jesus said] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. {6:34} Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof. [Words added for clarity]

    As for our increasing sense of being on a world in which we simply do not belong, the writer of the letter to the Hebrews noted God’s followers have always had this same sense of estrangement:

    Hebrews {11:14} For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. {11:15} And truly, if they had been mindful of that [country] from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. {11:16} But now they desire a better [country,] that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

    That hope of that grand homecoming belongs to all the saints, past, present, and those yet to come:

    1Thessalonians {4:14} For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. {4:15} For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and]
    remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. {4:16} For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: {4:17} Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. {4:18} Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

    Also, we have:

    Matthew {11:28} [Jesus said] Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. [Words added for clarity]

    I think what just happened in this election is a strong sign of just how close our departure to that new country really is.

    Jan Markel has said …. “things are falling into place”. That is evident and believable with knowledge given by God. It is so easy to write America off as a huge loss. I think that eventually America will be a huge loss. It looks like that event might be sooner than expected. I believe that we have lost America as we once knew it with the election of Joe Biden. I believe that he either will die in office due to his dementia or judged to be so incompetent because of that disease that he will be deposed and Kamala Harris will take over. We will then be headed to a full onslaught of submission to Babylon.

      I totally agree with your comment. We are indeed living in perilous times, not only in the USA but increasingly worldwide with persecution of Christians. Thousands of Christians suffering loss and death and the world looks away.Not considered newsworthy. We know our tenure here is for a limited time but we are called to be salt and light in an increasingly darkening world that calls good evil and evil good. I live in NZ and we have a Socialist Govt headed by a woman who allowed an imam to recite the Islamic prayer in our Parliament. Not one sound of protest from the Church, apart from one man who called the PM out for this abomination. Meantime we occupy, fervent in prayer, staying in the Word and trusting the One who loves us and gave Himself for us.
