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)
