The following warning goes out to the nations in the end times. It is a prophesy of their destruction. Over what? Jerusalem!
And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. — Zechariah 12:9 (KJV)
This verse is in the context of the time when Israel recognizes, towards the end of the Great Tribulation, that Jesus Christ is the Messiah and that they [Israel] killed him. They will mourn and be in great bitterness, as one who lost his firstborn.
The warning is for the nations that come against Jerusalem. This should be a somber warning, as in about one week, on 11/20/11, the Palestinians will be coming before the United Nations to demand their own state, at the cost of dividing Israel. The U.N. General Assembly will then vote on this, the following week.
The United States, long a friend of Israel, supports the Palestinians in their demand for statehood and also supports dividing Jerusalem and reducing Israel’s borders to an indefensible position. How could we, as a nation, turn against Israel?
We must repent, or the United States will suffer for the consequences of their actions.
For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head. Obadiah 1:15 (KJV)
Be in prayer for our nation to repent. Be in prayer for Israel.
God bless, Mike
