Israel has survived to be the Church time-piece as related to the last days, the days we are in today.
Each unfolding in this Jewish state attracts my attention and searching through Bible prophecy, and how they programme the Churches today and for future days, that is, should the LORD tarry.
Many Bible events have revolved around Israel, both in her primitive establishment and in the recent. After the fig tree budded and flourished in 1948, so history is clear on what this Middle East state, signifies in end times events.
I would even dare say, the Bible is an Eastern setting, where Israel has been the focus, but now, even as the Church’s time clock, the ‘stop-watch’ if you like. With this understanding, in the pro-Zionist mind and compromise, every little political maneuver in Israel is not to be ignored, at least for the wise and learned Church, the scholarly Church, who are tuned and alert to hear the footsteps of Messiah.
Of more importance, is that The LORD in his second Advent, will focus and concentrate His ministry in the Mideast, and that geographical area is Jerusalem. The horse of Revelation 19:6-11, comes to Israel; not even America is clearly defined at that time.
Jesus went up from a point on the mount Olives; His coming back is of the same manner.
He judges the world’s armies on His landing, the infamous Armageddon, and that is in Israel. And even the greatest restoration is achieved in Israel, as He establishes His firm rulership from Jerusalem, the city of His father David.
Having said that, days ago, the inclusion of Avigdor Liberman, in the Netanyahu led government, could as well unfold developing significance in ISRAEL, Middle East, and a game changer to the reasoning and pursuit of stability or instability, depending on what God intends to serve through this political alliance.
Few would have expected Netanyahu’s choice of Liberman, a far right controversial personality in so many ways. He now occupies the most revered and sensitive position of Minister for Defense, exclusively in charge of the IDF.
He is a polarizing figure and a non compromiser secularist, who has in the past called for war with Israel enemies, and advocated the assassination of Palestinian Leaders in the Westbank.
Libermann has been quoted in rhetorics that can trigger wars. And given the siege around Israels from the Golan heights, the Westbank and tension within the Temple Mount, many expect future ideological and military retaliations from this hardliner politician.
A political decision at what time it will be, has the capacity to trigger the war that is prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39, and so, such a polarizing figures like Libermann, can create situations and military circumstances that opens a new prophetic chapter for the church. For now as you know, the Bible does prophecy wars that Israel fights in near future and these wars, have massive significance to Christ’s return.
For instance, if Libermann as who he is, Netanyahu, and the Israeli cabinet jointly approve a nuke stike on Iran, that attack may cause total flare up in the region, and that war, denotes the coming of Messiah.
Its even shocking to hear leaders already talking and planning war that is fought after the rapture.
My question has been, if this war is post rapture and the battle tanks are already in the place of battle, then how soon is the rapture? Essentially there ia no time.
The Messiah is coming.
