“Then said Solomon, The Lord hath said that he would dwell in the thick darkness. But I have built an house of habitation for thee, and a place for the dwelling for ever. And the king turned his face, and blessed the whole congregation of Israel; an all the congregation of Israel stood.
And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, who hath with his hands fulfilled that which he spake with his mouth to my father David, saying, Since the day that I brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt, I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build an house in, that my name might be there; neither chose I any man to be a ruler over my people Israel:
BUT I HAVE CHOSEN JERUSALEM, THAT MY NAME MIGHT BE THERE; ” 2 Chronicles 6:6
About all that can be said when watching news reports about the outrage concerning President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Capital of Israel and plans to move the embassy there is one word… WOW.
Everyone, even reportedly the Pope does not want this to happen. As you can read from the verses above, Jerusalem already has an owner, Jehovah God, who said HIMSELF that Jerusalem is HIS CHOSEN.
I am truly glad that President Trump did this, whether there were motives or not because it needed to be done and God also told us that if anyone blesses Israel, He in turn would bless them and likewise if any curses Israel, He would curse them. Sometimes it is hard to see who is who but one look at this mess and it is very easy to distinguish who the cursed shall be.
I also fear the overall implications of what IS being ushered in. I am also blown away by just how many oppose Israel’s rightful claim to Jerusalem, I believe many oppose it, especially the ones who know the truth, not because of political beliefs but they simply wish to delay the inevitable and I would suppose maybe the have reservations concerning what they truly believe in their own hearts or that they fear their own hearts are not ready to stand in the day of the Lord as He takes His rightful place as King over the Earth, and that rule will be from Israel and HIS capital WILL be Jerusalem.
It is quite humorous that squatters would fight over land that they have no real claim to… until the real land owner returns. There is the constant argument about world peace… there IS no world peace… no WILL THERE BE PEACE until He reigns on this earth.
For those who like to argue it, I would like to refresh the world to the words of Jesus Christ himself from two different verses:
Matthew 10:34: “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I am come not to send peace, but a sword.”
Okay, first Jesus truly gives His followers and those who love Him peace and that Is His desire for them, but what we are talking about here, is this sin stricken world, a world that denies His very existence, a world of filth and depravity, and a world that is void of the true peace that will reign as He reigns.
Just because you have a cease-fire and take a brief time out from your ethnic prejudices and stop trying to kill one another for a month or two, does in no way make for true peace any ones heart.
Think about what Simeon told Mary at Jesus’ dedication, Luke 2:35: “( Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) THAT THE THOUGHTS OF MANY HEARTS MAY BE REVEALED.”
That is the sword, a sword to reveal, just as in the days of Moses, who was for God and who was against Him. To reveal those who will stand and those who will cave to their fellow-man. Who will please God and who will please men.
That is thoughts and intents of the heart, as Hebrews 4:12 explains that piercings purpose: “For the word of God is quick (LIVING), and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, PIERCING even to the DIVIDING ASUNDER (cutting in half) of the soul and the spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and IS A DISCERNER (able to judge) OF THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTS (intentions) OF THE HEART.”
People who live in a fairy tale land of rainbows and flowers and have no enemies would never have a reason to show forth secret hidden anger, rage, and race based hatreds. But let that sword of division weld and the truth of brotherly love is put to the test. Just as He taught us, it is EASY to love those who love us but when it comes to those who hate us that makes for a different set of rules.
I will be completely honest, there has always been certain groups that I absolutely detest because I never understood how they could hate people they do not even know, or how they could really believe that they are superior to anyone because of skin color and this was before I knew Christ and I know He had to still be helping me because it dawned on me one day that to hate them because of WHAT they are made me no different from them. Hate is still hate, it’s like the death penalty, take someone’s life because they have taken a life, two murders and no one lives. It is illogical.
But I am not going to pretend I like these people, I don’t and I do pray that they repent. Luke 12:49-56: “I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, (how I wish) if it (it were) already be kindled?
But I have a baptism to baptized with; and how am I straitened (distressed) till it be accomplished! Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth?
I tell ye, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
And he said unto all the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be a heat (hot weather) ; and it cometh to pass.
Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?”
This is those scriptures that are so easily avoided by the candy coats.
He is telling us in no uncertain terms of what would take place on this earth and it IS and it IS part of the divine plan of reconciling us, humankind back unto Himself once and for all.
When he died on the cross for all our sins, He allowed us through Him to be reconciled back into the Father. And this ALL must come to pass as the wheat are separated from the tares and those who should reign with Him in New Jerusalem are being revealed. And even though this is all leading up to Armageddon, we still have a long way to go even after Armageddon to see the finality of the devils eternal damnation to a lake of fire. He is still yet to be bound one thousand years and loosed one more time to do what he is obviously very good at.. deceiving the nations.
So don’t be hating on The Donald.. it HAS to happen. REMEMBER it IS God who LEADS them into the battle of Armageddon.
Jesus told us this, Luke 21: 20: “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed about (surrounded) with armies, then know that the desolation is nigh (near) at hand.”
As all these things come to pass.. let them come because just as Jesus rebuked Peter for speaking that His death should not come, this is much the same. And here is why, Zechariah 12:1-3: ” The burden (prophecy) of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundations of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling (drunkenness or reeling) unto all the people round about, when they shall be the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
And in that day will I make JERUSALEM a burdensome (very heavy) stone for all people (peoples); ALL THAT BURDEN THEMSELVES WITH IT SHALL BE CUT TO PIECES, THOUGH THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH BE GATHERED TOGETHER AGAINST IT.”
He said that very clearly. And if you would like to see an example of this TODAY, just go search news and check out their protests. They are REELING with anger, DRUNK with hatred and they ARE burdening themselves with a land that the one who CREATED has already CHOSEN FOR HIMSELF!
But there is so much to this, such as how it is really priming things up for the antichrist to come into play and the final battle.
So please check back, I am hoping to post this really close together and I will add links so that the entire series can be viewed on each post if one so desires. Next time, Lord’s will, we’ll hit the devils take on this and then see what God’s word says it REALLY going to play out!
Love ya and thanks for reading! God Bless you and keep your eyes on the sky!
