There is no question in the mind of this writer and many evangelical Bible-believing Christians that Israel is a special nation. God clearly made an everlasting covenant to be the God of Abraham and his descendants in their generations; to give them all (not part) of the land of Canaan for an everlasting possession, and to be their God (Gen. 17:7-8).
As the great Dr. J. Vernon McGee said, “God did not give them a ninety-nine-year lease on the land. God gave them an everlastingpossession” (Thru the Bible with J. Vernon McGee, Volume I, page 74).
There is also no question in the mind of this writer and many evangelical Bible-believing Christians that as the Tribulation period approaches those nations that harm Israel will suffer similar harm. God clearly said “thine reward shall return upon thine own head” (Obad. 1:15).
There is no doubt that Canada is a great nation with millions of Christians and perhaps as many as 400,000 Jews. For the most part, the Jews have been safe, well-treated, they have prospered and the Jewish population has grown.
Canada’s 22nd Prime Minister (Feb. 6, 2006-Nov. 4, 2015) was Stephen Harper, one of the best friends Israel had in the world during his time in office. He opposed Pres. Obama’s deal to let Iran eventually get nuclear weapons, closed Canada’s Embassy in Tehran and spoke well of Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu.
When Prime Minister Harper visited Israel in 2014 Prime Minister Netanyahu called him “a great friend of Israel and the Jewish people.” He was praised for his great moral leadership and his stance on anti-Semitism.
Mr. Netanyahu told Mr. Harper, “The people of Israel and I deeply appreciate your friendship, and the friendship of the people ofCanada to us.” Israel honored him by letting him be the first and only Canadian Prime Minister to ever address the Israeli Knesset (Parliament).
In 2015, things began to change. Justin Trudeau, son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, ran against Mr. Harper. The young Trudeau sought the Muslim vote; accused Mr. Harper of pandering to the Jews; criticized Mr. Harper’s opposition to Pres. Obama’s deal to let Iran eventually get nuclear weapons; criticized Mr. Harper’s closing of Canada’s Embassy in Tehran; and had some harsh words for Prime Minister Netanyahu’s actions on settlement issues.
Mr. Trudeau won the election and was sworn in on Nov. 4, 2015. He moved Canada closer to the Muslims and widened the space between Canada and Israel.
On Jan. 24, 2016, following support for the Two-State Solution by his Foreign Affairs Minister, Stephane Deon, Mr. Trudeau’s government was widely accused of abandoning Israel. There is no other way to put it when his handpicked Foreign Affairs Minister is in favor of driving Jews out of their houses and off their land.
But to make matters worse, three days later, Mr. Trudeau released his official statement commemorating International Holocaust Remembrance Day. In that official document, Mr. Trudeau didn’t even mention the suffering of the Jews. It was almost like their suffering didn’t matter and they didn’t even exist in his mind.
Adolf Hitler built concentration camps with gas chambers and furnaces. He gassed, burned, tortured and starved about six million Jews. He burned about 340 a day at Auschwitz I and more at Auschwitz II and his other newly-built crematoriums.
Yes, Adolf Hitler set fire to hundreds of thousands of Jewish men, women and children, and Justin Trudeau issued a statement to remember the event, but he didn’t mention the burning of even one Jew.
Following the release of his bland commemorative document,Canada had several weeks of unusually hot and dry weather. Then, on May 3, 2016, a wildfire called “The Beast” broke out (cause unknown, but probably lightning) at Fort McMurray, Canada. A strong wind was gusting and about 88,000 people were told to immediately leave their houses and land.
At the time of this writing, hundreds of buildings have burned, thousands of Canadians are stranded, thousands say they have spent a week in hell (thankfully no one has burned to death), and the raging fire is still out of control.
I don’t know why God allowed the unusually hot, dry gusty weather that Canada has had, the scorching wildfire and Fort McMurray’s week in hell. But I do know that anti-Semitism will be costly as the Tribulation period draws near.
I am wondering if this is a warning from God that has come upon the Canadian people because of Mr. Trudeau’s anti-Semitism. I am wondering if God is reminding Mr. Trudeau that burning men, women and children to death is horrible even when those men, women and children are Jews instead of Canadians.
I am wondering if Canadians have been driven out of their houses and off their land because Mr. Trudeau is in favor of driving Jews out of their houses and off their land.
I would like for Mr. Trudeau and his staff to know that even though the Jews didn’t spend a week in the real place called hell, what they went through was worse than what Fort McMurray has been going through. The pictures from Fort McMurray have been called pictures of Armageddon, but the pictures of the Holocaust are much worse.
