I write this on the eve of President Obama's long-awaited speech from Cairo, Egypt. Journalists from all sources seem to agree that the purpose of this speech is to "improve U.S. relations with Muslim nations." In truth, I beileve that this speech carries much heavier weight and significance than that. We have only to compare the most recent news articles on this subject with biblical prophecy to gain a startling revelation of what is really happening with Obama's proposed Middle East policy.
On May 21, 2009 Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, went on record saying, "A unified Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Jerusalem always has been and always will be ours and it will never again be divided." This was followed the next day by a statement from French Foreign Ministry spokesman Frederic Desagneaux: "The international community does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the city's status is a stumbling block in negotiations with the Palestinians, who want East Jerusalem to be the capital of their future state."
If you know Scripture, that statement should make the hair stand up on the back of your neck, and the Spirit within you leap a mile! Through the prophet Zechariah the LORD God has spoken, "In that day I will make Jerusalem a stumbling block for all people; all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth gather against it." (Zechariah 12:3). The LORD goes on in that chapter to warn, "And it shall come to pass in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerualem." In Joel 3:2 Yahweh also gives strong warning against those that "divide My Land."
Harold Smith recently wrote, "It is not coincidental that Obama will deliver his Cairo speech to align the U.S. with the Muslim world on June 4, the very day the Six-Day War began in 1967, which resulted in Israel exerting her sovereignty over Jerusalem three days later on June 7, and thus fulfilled the times of the Gentiles spoken by Yeshua in Luke 21:24. That the United States is buying into Arab demands puts it squarely in the face of consequential disaster because it is the God of Israel who is defending this Land." (Please go to http://www.hethathasanear.com/ to read this entire, powerfully prophetic article).
The God of Israel has spoken and He watches over His Word to accomplish it. In the next few days we will be crossing over a spiritual threshold, and I believe we will see more prophecy fulfilled. The only question remaining is, "Are you on the right side of that threshold? Do you know Yeshua haMashiach (Jesus Christ) as the Lord and Savior of your life?" If not, this would be a good time to bow the knee before the Righteous King, who is coming to reign forever in Jerusalem, the city that bears HIS NAME.
