TRENDING:

Turning On Israel Is Certainly Not The Way To Bring Blessing Upon America

Robert Gottselig

Last week, the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution demanding from Israel an immediate ceasefire in Gaza for the month of Ramadan. It passed by a vote of 14-0 with one abstention—the United States.

Though the resolution called for the release of the hostages, The Times of Israel pointed out this fact about the resolution:

It does not require the release by Hamas of the 130 Israeli hostages it has been holding since October 7 in order for the ceasefire demand to become operative.

Furthermore, the resolution issues a ceasefire call that Israel, a party to the UN Charter, will now be pressured by the international community to heed, while Hamas, a barbaric terrorist organization that regards itself as answerable to nothing but its own Jew-killing genocidal ideology, will blithely ignore the demand to unconditionally free the hostages.

Former US Vice President Mike Pence immediately responded: “This is a disgrace. The UN Security Council passed a resolution calling for an immediate cease-fire that makes no mention of Hamas or October 7th and the Biden Administration let it pass without a veto.”

Pence further went on to say that “after the worst attack on the Jewish people since the Holocaust Israel must be allowed to wage war until Hamas is destroyed once and for all.” I agree with him.

There is a clear shift happening in the United States’ support for Israel.

The day following that shameful UN resolution, a container ship leaving Baltimore’s Port hit one of the three main supports of the Francis Scott Key bridge, resulting in its tragic collapse. Some are saying it was a cyber attack. The incident is still under investigation, but what I am sure of is that God allowed it to happen. When the US turned its back on Israel on March 25th, it was certainly not the way to bring blessing upon America—in fact, just the opposite. 

The American Trucking Association (ATA) estimated that “nearly 4,900 trucks traveled the bridge every day, carrying about $28 billion in goods every year,” according to Fox Business. Thousands of trucks will now need to be rerouted, resulting in a dramatic rise in the cost of all those goods. Some say rebuilding the bridge could take up to 10 years and cost well over 400 million dollars.

Don’t misunderstand. I am not saying this could have been prevented had the US used its veto power to squash the UN’s shameful resolution. However, I do honestly believe Genesis 12:3, which states: “And I will bless them that bless thee [Israel], and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

We know from history that when a nation curses God’s chosen people, God will curse that nation, just as He did with the ancient Egyptians, ancient Assyrians, Babylonians, ancient Greece, Rome, and the Third Reich. Where are all those ancient empires that came against God’s chosen people? They’re all gone. Where is Israel? Right back in the land that He swore to the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

You would think the world would have learned this by now, but they keep testing the God of the universe. And they will continue to do so until it climaxes one day at the end of the tribulation. During that time all nations will come against God’s chosen people (Zechariah 14:2). It’s not hard to imagine that happening when we can see glimpses of that today.

Balaam prophesied in Numbers 23:9 that Israel would not be numbered among the nations. In other words, Israel would be treated in a different manner and be held to a higher standard than what the world holds itself accountable to. We read that one day, God will enter into judgment with those nations for doing so.

Zechariah, writing approximately 2500 years ago, states: “So the angel who spoke with me said to me, ‘Proclaim, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘I am zealous for Jerusalem And for Zion with great zeal. I am exceedingly angry with the nations at ease; For I was a little angry, And they helped—but with evil intent.”

In the time that Zechariah penned these verses, God’s chosen people were scattered 350 miles to the east as a result of the Babylonians under King Nebuchadnezzar dragging them to Babylon. The nations were reporting that everything was at ease; they didn’t care about God’s chosen people and what happened to them, which stirred the Lord’s anger.

God was angry with the nations in Zechariah’s day, and I believe He is also angry today with the Nations who could care less about His chosen people.

The UN resolution that passed makes no mention of the atrocities carried out by Hamas or the fact that they use their own people as human shields. There is also no mention of the fact that the majority of Palestinians support October 7th and continue to do so.

It’s as if the world has forgotten the demonic horrors committed in that massacre.

Even the demand that Israel agree to a Ramadan ceasefire is absurd, considering that Hamas had no problem deliberately attacking Israel during their season of feast days.

The bottom line is this: to let Hamas live another day so this can be repeated in the future is to have no regard and no compassion for what is true, right, and just—and God is taking note. Woe unto the world! Judgment is coming.

In Chapter 30, verse 11, Jeremiah writes, “For I am with you [Israel],’ says the Lord, ‘to save you; Though I make a full end of all nations where I have scattered you, Yet I will not make a complete end of you…”

God says that He has an everlasting love for His chosen people. They are the apple of His eye. While this world is turning against Israel, let us, as believers, stand with Him and pray for our country and leaders to do the same.

In A World Encased In Violence, Prophecy Is The Stabiliser Of Our Faith

God did not provide His Word so that it would simply die in the hands of the spiritually dead. He expected, as evidenced by Habakkuk, that it be shared – particularly that which was warning people of the two paths available – righteousness or wickedness.
