“Israel now alone?”
by Art Sadlier   
April 21st, 2009

The scriptures have much to say about the end time scenario, describing the world scene during the last days. We are told in Joel 3:2 and in other places that the world will turn against Israel and divide her land, supposedley in the name of peace. The nations today have stopped their ears to what God says in His word about Israel.  

For several years now Israel has had a friend and supporter in the U.S.A. Today we are seenig an amazing turn around by the Obama government, a turning against Israel. Let me list some of the changes in attitudes and policies in the last few days.  The U.S. administration has said that there will be two States on Israel's land whether Israel likes it or not.  Mr. Obams has made it clear that he will accept nothing less than Israel living side by side with a sovereign Palestinian State, on Israel's land. Today the U.S. has stated that the Arabs do not have to recognize Israel as a part of a peace agreement. That signals nothing less than that the peace process is about improving the Arabs position to destroy Israel. That has always been their stated goal and now Mr. Obama is endorsing that goal. He is obviously using Israel as a bargaining chip to relieve Islam's pressure on America.

Other significant changes in American policy and attitude include, the cancelation of Prime Minister Netanyahu's visit to Washington next month.  The planned purchase of ($15 billion) 75 US made F35 fighter jets has been put on hold. Mr. Obama has demanded a freeze on Jewish expansion of settlements in the west bank. President Obama is opening relations with Iran, he is warming up to Cuba's Castro and Venezuala's Chavez. He has bowed to the king of Saudi Arabia and endorsed the Saudi Arabian peace plan, which if adopted in its present form would spell the demise of Israel, either through the ballot box in Israel or by transferring the Gaza type terrorism to the very heart of Israel.

It now seems that it is the whole world against Israel, and that is exactly what the biblical end time scenario foretells.

We realize that the scriptures will be fulfilled, and that God will judge the nations for their treatment of Israel as His word declares. That judgment will take place at Armageddon.  The troublesome aspect of this coming is judgment is the prospect of imminent judgment on America. America, it seems, will be neutralized prior to the rise of antichrist. We say that because America is not a player in the end time scenario and actually stands in the way of that scenario unfolding.  We see this judgment already coming upon her, in the form of the economic crisis. A crisis that could yet bring down the U.S. dollar and turn America into a third world country. Their are a number of troubling prospects at this time, prospects that warn of judgment on America.

We are drawn to the warning found in Psalm 2:1-4, " Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his annointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away cords from us."  If you consider how the nations are totally rejecting what God has said about Israel and His promises to them concerning the land. The above Psalm is an exact fulfilment of prophecy.

In fact we live in an hour when the of God's word is being rejected. Whether it be abortion, same sex marriage, drugs or whatever,  if God says it the world is against.

The prophetic scriptures indicate that the final and greatest rebellion of the nations is the attempt of all of the nations of the world to move Israel off the land that God has long promised her. This warning is clearly spelled out in the bible. The fact is that never in all of history has this attempt been made by all the nations at one time, as it is being made today. This situation by itself is enough to prove that we are living in the last days and that the coming of the Lord is near at hand.
