Does Israel Stand Alone?
In May 2011, President Obama called for negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians to begin based on pre- 1967 boarders. Obama is telling Israel to give back land that was righteously gained while defending itself during the six-day war when Israel was preemptively attacked by its neighbors.
The looming UN meeting in September 2011, where there will be an attempt to resolve the Israeli- Palestinian dispute by forcing Israel to give up land for peace. It didn't work in the past, why would anyone anticipate that "giving land for peace" will work in the future? Let's not forget the seeming disintegration of the 30-year peace treaty with Egypt and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, I can see where one would be inclined to think that Israel stands alone in the world.
Also, there is the well-known fact that the Palestinians are dead set on the destruction of Israel far more than they want to create a state for themselves and that they are planning a new holocaust, even as they deny the Holocaust that actually happened. Again, it sure does seem as though Israel does stand alone, at least on the political seen.
What's more, Iran is on the verge of building nuclear weapons, thereby gaining the potential to destroy Israel, which Mohammad- Reza Naghdi vows to do. What about the recent Arab uprising that has taken place in neighboring Israeli countries? Such as Egypt,Syria and Libya.
These political situations in the Middle East are acclaimed to be democratic uprisings of oppressed people and so it is but why are these uprisings funded by G-8 World Banks? Including America. Don't they know that creating this unstable political environment is playing right into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood? They are just waiting in the wings to take over these toppled governments and then it is just a matter of time before these countries are openly run by extream Muslims (terrorists). When looking at the big picture, the fallen world is playing right into the hands of the "Holy One" who keepeth Israel.
How Did Israel Win In Just Six Days
Relevance of Prophecy With Regard to Israel
Hundreds of Bible passages predict the return of Israel to the land of Palestine, one is mentioned in Isaiah 43:5-6,"Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, `Give them up!' and to the south, `Do not hold them back.' Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth."
The Jews had lived for many years outside of their promised land. At an appointed time (May 14, 1948), they would return to their ancient possession. The biblical predictions have been 100% accurate making the nation's return a supernatural happening in our age. Nothing less than a modern miracle. The Jewish people were dispersed for over 1,900 years but they've returned to their land and will stay.
Although it may seem that Israel does stand alone, scripture tells us that there is One who watches over Israel, Jehovah Elohim.
Psalm 83 begins by saying... "O Lord, do not keep silent, be not quiet, be not still. See how your enemies are astir, your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people and they plot against those you cherish. Come, they say, let us destroy them as a nation that the name of Israel be remembered no more."
What's in store for Israel's future, you ask?
Joel 3:2 The Nations Judged... "In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I (God Almighty) will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them (declare war) concerning my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land."
Ezekiel 38: A prophecy Against Gog
Historically speaking, Magog was a grandson of Noah (Genesis 10:2). The descendants of Magog settled to the far north of Israel, likely in Europe and northern Asia (Russia). The people of Magog are described as skilled warriors.
Cush is the upper Nile region that we now know as Sudan. While the current state of Ethiopia may also be involved in the war, the focus is really Sudan, which today, of course, is a radical Islamic Sunni state closely allied with Iran and Russia and deeply anti-Semitic and anti-Israel.
Josephus (a Hebrew scholar) identifies “Put” as “ancient Lybios”, the territory that today we call Libya and Algeria. Interestingly, both countries today are deeply hostile to Israel and closely allied with Russia.
Gomer is what we now call Turkey. The Turkish government has swung dramatically away from the West, towards Russia and Iran and has become deeply hostile towards the State of Israel.
There is an invasion of Israel coming in the future and according to the current political situation, this invasion could happen in the near future. Scripture identifies this invasion as the “War of Gog and Magog”. All anyone has to do is read the book of Ezekiel (in the bible) to learn more of this war and it's final result.
