But if I zoom back in from the bigger picture and look at what is actually being fulfilled right now, in this very day, I can clearly see the stone that the builders rejected becoming a stumbling stone. There is a lot of new information coming out now about Maj. Nidal Hasan. It has been verified that he had close ties and contact with members of the Al Qaeda terrorist organization, and that he clearly had a Muslim agenda, which calls its members to kill the infidel and conquer the "Great Satan" (the U.S.A.) with the sword of Islam. How many in this nation still do not get it? How many are really surprised that our government had knowledge of this and did nothing? How many of us finally have our heads out of the sand and are seeing biblical prophecy being fulfilled in our nation by an enemy of YHVH known today as Islam?
The Ruach (Holy Spirit) is sounding the alarm on His Holy Mountain; are you listening? Zechariah prophesied (Zech 12:1-3): "This is the Word of YHVH concerning Israel. YHVH, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the spirit of man within him, declares: 'I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves."
On the early morning of November 8th I arose to check e-mail and noticed an article from the Ha'eretz Newspaper in Israel, reporting that the U.N. Security Council is getting ready to endorse a Declaration of Independence for a Palestinian State with pre-1967 borders (which includes the Temple Mount). It said Syria may be involved in brokering this agreement. Then yesterday Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu flew to Washington D.C. and engaged in a secret meeting with President Obama. No details were released by the press.
What in the world is going on? I am telling you what is going on, beloved in Messiah! Jerusalem is quickly becoming an "immovable rock for all the nations, and all who try to move it [change its ownership/move its borders] will injure themselves." On the Temple Mount today sits the Muslim Mosque, the Dome of the Rock, which has a large inscription on its walls declaring, GOD HAS NO SON!
You see, the Stone that causes the Muslims and many other peoples of the earth to stumble has a name. His name is Yeshua. He is the One the prophet Isaiah wrote about (and Peter quoted) in 1 Peter 2:6-8: "...it says in Scripture, 'See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in Him will never be put to shame'. Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, 'The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone,' and 'a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.' They stumble because they disobey the message - which is also what they were destined for."
Maj. Nidal Hasan was in a struggle all right. He and his fellow Muslims (as well as many other nations and religions of the world ) are stumbling over the capstone, and they are killing to prove their point. They are trying to move the Rock of Jerusalem, and in the end they will fall. It is Satan at war with Yahweh, doing his best to eradicate the seed of the Woman, the Lamb who was slain from the foundation of the world to redeem Israel (those who would believe in Him and keep His commandments).
They stumble because they disobey the message - which is also what they were destined for. Pray for the eyes of the blind to be opened, and the ears of the deaf to hear! Then keep your own eyes and ears open, that you may see the Truth and not be deceived.
