Jerusalem – A Stone Too Heavy! :: by Bobby Blanton

In September of 2012 the Democratic Party convened for the National Convention here in Charlotte, NC. It began in chaos and disarray as the oversight committee removed any and all reference to God in their platform language. They also made a decision to remove support for Israel by deleting any reference to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

We later got a good look at the real hearts and minds of the rank and file Democrats when they erupted and starting shouting and booing at the mention of God, Jerusalem or Israel. The Democratic Party had created a new image in modern political history:

“The Party that booed God.”

That same image has played out its role in the presidency of Barack Obama. Last week at my weekly men’s Bible Prophecy outreach, which I facilitate at our church, I reviewed what he had done to direct his administration to overturn the “Defense of Marriage Act.” And how he has proudly steered this nation “through a wide gate and down a broad road that leads to destruction.”

That highway to hell is broad!

Current headlines declare that Jerusalem has become a burden to all peoples and it is the peoples of this nation who have supported Barack Obama as he has embarked upon an all-out-effort to lead the nations of the earth against her.

“On that day I will make Jerusalem a stone too heavy for all the nations to lift. All who try to lift it will be severely injured. All the nations in the world will gather[to fight] against Jerusalem” (Zecharaiah 12:3).

Let’s take a look some very recent news headlines:

• Netanyahu…We are facing the danger of an agreement with world powes and Iran.
• John Hagee Warns God’s Punishment for Obama Dividing Jerusalem
• Kerry Blames Israel for Rise of ISIS
• Israel: Time to Make a Decision on Iran Regardless of World’s Position
• Netanyahu…Nothing Can Stop Us from Building in Jerusalem.
• Jerusalem Attack Kills Child: Netanyahu Orders Police and Military into Jerusalem
• Jordan to Israel: You Are Inciting a Religious Conflict over Temple Mount
• Israel’s Foreign Minister.: Terror Is a Global Epidemic
• All of Israel Within Missile Range (Head of Iran’s revolutionary guards.)
• Hezbollah Preparing a Large Assault on Israel?
• Putin Calls on Israel to Halt settlements in Jerusalem
• Jerusalem a Ticking Time bomb Warns Israeli Minister
• Saudis Sound Alarm: Obama Caving on Iran
• Riots Break Out Across East Jerusalem
• Netanyahu Approves 1000 New Homes in East Jerusalem
• Netanyahu Promises to Keep Building in Jerusalem
• Abbas Sends Urgent Message to U.S. to Stop Building in Jerusalem
• Abbas call for Emergency UN Security Meeting on Jerusalem
• U.S. State Dept…We Are Unequivocally Opposed to Jerusalem Construction
• EU Threatens Israel-Again-over Jerusalem Homes
• Jordan Warns Israel over Jerusalem Settlements
• Violence in Jerusalem has Increased Dramatically

There you have it, a wrap up on very recent news and headlines, and it doesn’t look good for the home team. Keep in mind that this diplomatic effort to divide, condemn and persecute our greatest ally, Israel, goes forward at a time when the world is watching the waves of demonic horror engulf the surrounding Muslim world.

Read carefully the following Scriptures, and the next time you see a headline concerning the division of Jerusalem, remember what God has already established to do in judgment at the battle of Armageddon at the end of the Tribulation:

“I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land” (Joel 3:2).

And “I will completely destroy the nations where I have scattered you, but I will not completely destroy you. I will discipline you, but with justice; I cannot let you go unpunished” (Jeremiah 30:11).

Friends, how late do you think it is?

When you look at all of this and consider that, “In that day” God said He would make “Jerusalem, a stone too heavy” then you know that the Judge is standing at the door. We are watching Bible prophecy come to pass and at a speed that is truly unbelievable.

We are in the birth pains (and not the gestational period) of the last days, so stand up, your redemption draweth nigh!

“Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.” Proverbs 8:34

God Bless,
