There is an interesting
prophecy in Psalm 102 that reads, “ Thou
shalt arise, and have mercy upon
Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time,
is come. For thy servants
take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.
So the heathen shall fear the
name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory” (Psa.
102:13-16). This glimpse into the future says God has established a set time
to have mercy upon Zion (a term that refers
to Jerusalem more than 150 times in the Bible, but it can also
refer to Israel or the Temple
Mount). At God’s set time, He will rise up and
cause the Jewish people to love the stones and dust (soil) of Zion.
Jerusalem and the Temple Mount
will figure prominently in God’s plan to cause the Gentiles to respect Him.
And, of great significance to our generation, these set time events will be
a sign of His soon return.
announcement that Israel
has approved the construction of 797 homes in the Gilo neighborhood of East Jerusalem, EU Foreign Policy Chief, Catherine Ashton,
said, “Settlements are illegal
under international law and threaten to make a two-state solution
impossible.” The way I understand it: 1) Gilo is not a settlement, but it is
a neighborhood in East Jerusalem and part of the eternal capital of Israel;
2) Israel’s Supreme Court investigated the legality of the homes before
their construction was approved and the judges determined that building the
homes in Gilo is not a violation of international law; 3) The international
community may believe their international law trumps the promises and laws
of God to Israel, but they don’t and He will have the final say on that; and
4) Instead of Israel causing problems by building in East Jerusalem, its the
international community caving in to the unrealistic never-ending demands of
the militant Muslims that makes the two-state solution impossible.
truly is a cup of trembling and a burdensome stone for its neighbors and the
world just like the Bible says (Zech. 12:2-3). In fact, according to the
Bible, this problem won’t be solved until it triggers the Battle of
Armageddon at the Second Coming of Jesus (Joel 3:2; Rev. 19). Oh, make no
mistake about it, the highly-touted Antichrist will appear after the Rapture
and negotiate a phony peace treaty that the international community will
proudly boast about, but
when they say, “Peace
and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a
woman with child; and they shall not escape”
(I Thess. 5:3). The dysfunctional and corrupt UN has wasted one-third of its
resolutions condemning and berating Israel and it
will continue to do so until it is restructured into a satanic one-world
government headed up by its beloved Antichrist. The proud and arrogant
international community supports a peace process that the Bible says will
fail and some in Israel and the PA have already declared it dead. More than
15 years ago, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution and
appropriated money to move the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem and to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel, but
it has never happened (Several presidential candidates promised to do it
when they were campaigning for office, but all of them broke their promise
after they were elected). The rich and powerful Roman Catholic Church
regularly ignores God’s prophecies about Jerusalem in the Scriptures and they issue misguided calls
to be declared an international city. Anti-Semites in several mainline
Protestant denominations continue to fail to contend for the faith and
wrongly call for the division of Israel
and Jerusalem because they
have foolishly bought into a Bible-rejecting false doctrine called
This fury over
Jerusalem, the involvement of the people of the Antichrist (EU) in the peace
process, the creation of an international community (a wanna-be world
government), the deceit of presidential candidates concerning Jerusalem and
the corruption in the Church are sure signs that prophecy is being fulfilled
and God’s set time is near. These current events are not little things and
God didn’t reveal them in prophecy without a reason.
