Hi gang! Just a quick update on Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, as so much is happening so quickly! Honestly, I want desperately to develop the story and relate it to Biblical truth, but time is not on my side right now! I simply don’t have enough of it!
So, I simply want to point to one passage of Scripture, then provide trustworthy recent news to help paint the picture of what is going on in the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. The prophet Joel records prophesies of devastation, starvation and drought (Joel 1), as well as terrible catastrophes (Joel 2:1-17) before declaring deliverance and the promise of the Spirit (Joel 2:18-32) to Israel. Read those chapters, but I want you to focus intently on Joel 3:1-2, which says:
“For behold, in those days and at that time,
When I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,
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.
Friends, did you catch that!?! In those days (last days), God is going to gather ALL the nations and enter into judgment with them on behalf of His people! And why? Because they (His people, the Israelites) have been scattered among the nations and they have divided up My land.
God does not take kindly to people and nations dividing up the land He promised and gave to His chosen people. But, to get the picture, please take time to read Sources say Israel prepared to give up 90% of the West Bank. Israel is being put under extreme pressure!
What is Israel up against? Please read Is Palestinian leader Abbas a shrewd negotiator, or an obstacle to peace?
And who is behind the push to get Israel to agree to the insane peace deal? How about this: Kerry blames Israel for collapse of peace talks.
Friends, I urge you…please…read those three articles in light of Joel 3:1-2 and see if the light bulb doesn’t come on! God has clearly stated through the prophet, Joel, that He will enter into judgment with those who divide up the land of Israel.
Thanks for reading today…I hope you are enlightened!
