Seeing what is happening in the world now; Israel boxed in a corner, surrounded by her enemies, and America blatantly, with this Administration, turning their back on her, has been very disturbing to me as a Christian. I’ve been a student of Bible prophesy and current world events now for 30 years. It is a fascinating, amazing study where God beckons me with tears and prayers.
There are groups now called Preterists, who believe that prophesies in the Book of Revelations have already been fulfilled.in the destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD . The term preterism comes from the Latin praeter, which is listed in Webster’s 1913 dictionary as a prefix denoting that something is “past” or “beyond,” signifying that either all or a majority of Bible prophecy was fulfilled by AD 70. Adherents of preterism are commonly known as preterists, most coming from the Catholic Church, which is why no end time prophesy is ever taught, and why not taught in a lot of current Christian churches. AND they are so misinformed.
They ignore what Jesus prophesied himself …ie the word; “Until” the end times of the Gentiles to be fulfilled”. Luke 21:22-24 “Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains, let them which are in the midst of it depart. 22 For these are the days of vengeance (judgment) that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23 But WOE unto them who are with child & to them who suck, in those days! For there shall be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. (did in 70 AD). 24 They fell by the edge of the sword and were trodden until the time of the Gentiles (us Christians who were not Jewish that are saved). The Temple was destroyed by Romans in 70AD that eventually in all their bloodshed, became the beginning 350-500 years later of the Catholic church. Jerusalem was destroyed then by the Babylonians (Iraq). (And Saddam had started to rebuild Babylon too, in southern Iraq by Kuwait. ) This key word the preterists overlook is the word “UNTIL” which means what has happened in the past has stopped, but will start again.
This is when the Jews were falling by the edge of the sword & “scattered” in every nation. It was trampled on by the gentiles. There is a plan for the Jewish people. Matthew 25:31-46 Jesus, when He comes back as the Messiah will segregate and separate the gentiles from the Jewish people. Sheep from goats. Sheep who are believers will go into His Kingdom, and the goats will be cast directly into judgment. Romans 11:22-24 The olive tree mentioned is an allegory here, which symbolizes an eternal relationship with God. The Jew is this olive tree! And some will be cut out. Romans 11:25 Paul says, “Israel has experienced a hardening in part (until) the full number of the gentiles have come in.” This refers back to Luke 21:24, and so all Israel will be saved! The Jew will have the covenant but have their sins taken away! Israel in this age has a partial blinding to what is to come and faith in the God of Abraham! That word again, “until” –The deliverer will come from Zion, He will turn godlessness away from Jacob.
Romans 11:26-29 “And this is my covenant with them, when I take away their sins. As far as the gospel on your account, “today” they are enemies (Jews vs Catholics especially and some of us who are Protestant). But they are loved on account of the patriarchs, for God’s gifts and His call are IRREVOCABLE! The main issue Israel has partial judicial blindness and we are His temporary until Christ returns. “Until” (that word again) full , and all saved then it’s closed. THEN he goes back to HIS people in Israel.
So are we going to believe the God of the Bible or that which comes from man-made theories and worldly leaders or allegorical meanings of scripture which eliminates truths. Alchemists of allegory putting a curse on all those seeking to put harm on Israel. This is happening now in/on America! We have a curse on us now, for we went against God Almighty taking God out of everything He gave America. Our leaders care nothing about God and what HE says about the Jews and Israel being the SOUL OWNERS OF THAT LAND! THEY have the covenant and title deed to Israel the UN and Arab nations along with America’s left and Obama are making them give up land from God Almighty piece by piece…Hillary, Obama, and all these leaders of Islam and Russia, (the Bear in Revelation) and China (the Lion in Revelation) for a Palestinian state, now not inviting Israel, to this huge meeting because Turkey requested they be absent (snubbed). WOE to us….God is saying on this America. We have placed by our actions a curse on this nation ! For God said HE will bless those who bless my people, (Israel and the Jews) and curse them who curse her. Woe be to the Arab’s like Iran…Russia, Turkey Syria…all in Ezekiel 38 & 39.. But in the process, all those who forsake God’s people, Israel, and us , Christians getting persecuted and saved like Pastor Yousef, will be destroyed SUPERNATURALLY BY GOD! We need to pay attention to the news around us.. For His judgement is already before us.
God I pray for your people Jew and Gentile that love you and come to your throne and pray and seek your face, crying out all the while. We need to pay attention too as Christians, more to Christian TV news, like Hal Lindsay, CBN, & 700 Club news and others as well as TBN, and Daystar. Everything is lined up. Everything is in place. Can we pray and change the direction and prolong? I have no idea, but we need to change America. We need to be on our knees and pray for Israel and the Jews still scattered around the world, and think back to the Holocaust and what evil really is. We are a disaster in the making in this world now. All I can do is voice as a watchdog what God puts on my heart, and births in me to share. And prayer and action in the polls is our only tool. If this man gets in again, America is lost…gone as we know it…as well as our freedoms. Thank you Lord Jesus for all you put on my heart today, and I pray it sounds an alarm that shakes us to it’s serious consequences. God bless you..and God bless America and Israel, and protect the Christians in Egypt and these other Arab countries.

Postscript & Clarification:
I don’t know what was in this film on Islam (I’ve been trying to find out..) So I don’t back it nor do I condemn it. I think American politicians have things backwards. Yet, it’s alright to censor pastors…Its all right to yank Christians Crosses down even in WWII memorials, and they want to censor us right in the media. What I want is the truth. And I’ll leave it at that. But, these radical Islamist scare me because of their violence. For 4,000 years, since Abraham’s 2 sons, Isaac (Jewish Covenant & Christianity) and Ishmael (Arabs, Oil nations born from his servant Haggar) have fought. We can go back to Alexander the great, the Crusades (fighting with Catholics who were just as bloody). Their objective is to CONTROL AND DEMAND TOTAL OBEDIENCE TO ISLAM AND CONVERT BY FORCE.
Then we have Judaism & Christianity. Israel, only wants to live in peace…A small country that is God’s chosen, where, one day Heaven will come down to earth and reign. Christianity converts by God’s love. BUT… Make no mistake about it, GOD’S HAND WILL PROTECT ISRAEL, and any country such as Iran, Egypt, Turkey (Ezekiel 38,39) that DARES to attack her will be swallowed up by earthquakes and such violence in the War of Armageddon (the FINAL WAR) and God’s wrath and judgment that it will be mind boggling. I can say all this to ask one thing.
What about America? From this President’s decisions to molly coddle Islamists here, and around the world and not stick up for Judaism (even meet with Netanyahu), and Christianity, HE HAS BROUGHT JUDGMENT ON THE US. GOD help us! Wait til the prices sore in January & February… Draught, the fires, storms, dust storms, earthquakes, lack of oil, (failure to sign with Canada on that pipeline so we could be independent)…;ice storms, now the Co River dry…power failures…where everything we touch will be a disaster…..Gods judgment! And this I believe. God’s hand will ONLY be on America if we back Israel….”I will bless those who bless my people and curse those who CURSE her… Guess what Hillary, thanks to you and this President America has a curse on her now. You have a bigger problem with your new World Order that will out of the 10 horns (nations) usher in the Anti Christ and the 666…playing with the US right to the devil’s hands. But my word to you? To Obama? Woe unto you , THUS sayeth the Lord, because my curse and judgement is going to triple in my judgements on all of the leaders, their families…and you will never ever enter Heaven, but be cursed by God. How could you both, (the Clinton’s) calling yourselves Baptists, once, so educated…have totally missed the boat on Biblical prophesies…For I don’t fear all of you, but I do fear God Almighty!
THIS IS WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO VOTE AND VOTE FOR CHRISTIAN &
JEWISH LEADERS….BETTER YET? AN ARAB THAT IS CONVERTED TO JESUS!
