Three Headlines Worth Noting

(By Pastor Rob Madden)

1.       Obama and Medvedev: Iran has right to peaceful nuclear program

2.       Netanyahu: Iran Threatens the Entire World

3.       Obama Leaves Israel as ‘Lone Ranger’ in Nuclear Iran

The Bible’s prophetic teaching on Israel is plain & precise. Clearly, Israel is God’s chosen nation, and the people whom God made several “everlasting covenants” with. Israel is the recipient of Four Unilateral Covenants:

1.       The Abrahamic Covenant – (Gen. 12:1-3; 17:7-8, 13, 19)

2.       The Davidic Covenant – (1 Chron. 17:11-14)

3.       The New Covenant – (Jer. 31:31-37)

4.       The Palestinian Covenant – (Jer. 33)

Now with the Bible clearly teaching that Israel has a place in God’s Heart, God’s History, and God’s Hereafter, we must conclude that it will play an important role in the last days, and thus it is so, in today’s headlines! With this being said, America has a history of helping Israel most of the time. Over the last couple of presidency’s this has slowly been changing. Both Clinton and Bush constantly put pressure on Israel to secede the land God gave them. Of course, never during this time, did they state that the more land they gave to the Palestinians, the worse Israel suffered in barrages of attacks. All we’ve learned is that the prophetic utterances of the Old Testament are true of those nations surrounding Israel

Psa. 83:4  They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

Israel is a doomed nation today, unless something miraculous happens to save them. Maybe someone will come along and help them in these troubled times. A person who is persuasive, and a power in the world today. That person is none other than the Anti-christ! The only hope Israel has is not in America, United Nations, European Union, or the G20 Crowd, but in the Lord God Almighty! Israel is not the doomed nation that many think it is. Rather, it’s America and the rest of the nations that are doomed because of our sin, our rejection of Christ, and our treatment of Israel, God’s Chosen Nation!

Look at those headlines and what they reveal:

 1.      Obama is cozying up to the president of Russia (Medvedev), and who now calls him “a comrade”.  The Free Dictionary, says this about the word, “comrade”…

com·rade n.

1. A person who shares one's interests or activities; a friend or companion.

2. often Comrade A fellow member of a group, especially a fellow member of the Communist Party.

 Is this how Obama wants to be described by the sworn enemies of America, and the God of the Bible? Apparently he does, for we hear no objections from him.

 2.      Netanyahu, the new prime minister of Israel, warning the world of Iran’s destructive rhetoric and nuclear program, soon to be finished.

3.      And finally, Obama leaving Israel all alone in the Middle East to fend for themselves, among their surrounding sworn enemies!

All of this leads us to believe the prophetic Scriptures and what they say about the “Latter Days” of Israel, before Messiah comes! We are truly living in exciting days, in light of the soon return of Christ for His Bride (the Church). We are passing up the myriads of opportunities we have, to share these prophecies to the saved & unsaved. Think about the discussions, the opportunities, and the interest that these subjects open for us. The Messianic prophecies concern the first or second coming of Christ! With the first coming of Christ being already proven, then what great & convincing arguments we can give about the second coming of Christ.

Today’s headlines are pretty convincing, as you compare them to Holy Scripture, and clearly see the tie in. There are so many events taking place that if Christians miss this, then it’s at our own spiritual peril! See and read the signs of the times. Prepare for His coming by being faithful & true to the Lord.

Rom 13:11  And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

Rom 13:12  The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

Rom 13:13  Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.

Rom 13:14  But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.
