This week, Breaking Israel News published an interesting article about Israel’s stalemated election and Prime Min. Netanyahu’s legal problems.
It is just one man’s opinion, and there may be political motivations behind it, but some readers might find what the rabbi is saying to be interesting.
The original article can be found at:
Mendel Kessin, an orthodox rabbinic scholar, keeps delivering a speech titled “The Worldwide Reduction of Evil and Netanyahu’s Downfall.”
The rabbi is making four points that, in my words, are: 1) Many world leaders are having problems; 2) Israel will get a different kind of government; 3) The judgment of God is falling on Prime Min. Netanyahu; and, 4) Israel will go in a better direction.
I want to expand on my understanding of these four points.
One, according to the rabbi, God doesn’t have to drag nations into war to weaken them.
God can weaken nations internally with riots and demonstrations, and that is what God is currently doing to Israel’s enemies and the Arab nations.
God is weakening the nations because He intends to change the world.
Two, in the past, non-religious Jews formed coalitions to rule Israel.
Israel’s two failed elections mean that God is rejecting the process that allows non-religious Jews to rule over Israel.
God wants Israel to establish a procedure that will produce a different kind of government.
Three, there is no doubt that Prime Min. Netanyahu is one of the world’s greatest leaders and he has done a great work in Israel, but God has allowed him to suffer humiliation (be indicted) and great financial expense (years of paying high-priced lawyers) because he has refused to destroy the Islamic terrorists that are humiliating Israel and causing Israeli citizens to lose crops, property, money, etc.
The rabbi is saying, Prime Min. Netanyahu is reaping what he has sown.
He is saying, the Prime Minister’s most important responsibility is to protect the Israeli people and their assets, but Mr. Netanyahu has failed to do that for the Jews that live near Gaza, so God is not protecting Mr. Netanyahu and his assets.
Four, the rabbi is saying Israel’s new kind of government will be a religious leader that will give Israel a bright future.
This writer does not know whether the rabbi is right or wrong, but Israel’s future includes government approval to rebuild the Temple and resume the animal sacrifices, and eventually, to accept the reign of the King of kings and Lord of lords.
Moving on to another subject: On Nov. 23, 2019, the U.S. Commander of Centcom visited Bahrain, the U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff visited Israel, and Vice Pres. Mike Pence visited the Kurds in Iraq to discuss the situation in Iran.
The U.S. sanctions against Iran are working, Iran is in financial trouble, and the Iranian people are rioting and demonstrating.
Iran has two choices: Change her ways so the U.S. will drop the sanctions, or risk starting a war.
The U.S. believes Iran will risk starting a war by attacking a major target in the Middle East, but the location and details are anyone’s guess.
Two days later, DEBKAfile reported that their sources believe that Iran is ready to move forward (on the risk of starting a war).
Five days later, Pres. Trump and Prime Min. Netanyahu discussed the situation over the phone and finalized their plans on how to deal with Iran.
Moving on one more time, it has occurred that God helped Joshua capture Jericho with trumpets in just seven days (Josh. 6:1-20) and He helped Gideon and 300 men defeat the Midianites with trumpets, pitchers and lamps in one day (Judg. 7:10-22).
What an amazing God!
But in 1948, God helped a poorly armed Israel win the War of Independence in twenty months; in 1956, God helped Israel win the Suez Canal War in eight days; in 1967, God helped Israel win the Six-Day War in six days; and in 1973, God helped Israel win the Yom Kippur War in eighteen days.
I would say that the same God that helped Joshua and Gideon in Old Testament times is still on the throne, and many prophetic events are lining up.
God said He will regather Israel and “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD” (Isa. 54:17).
