Introductory comments by Ken Pullen
It is a wonderful sight to see and refreshing words to hear a U.S. President welcome warmly, and embrace in friendship the leader of Israel. A one hundred and eighty degree shift from the previous eight years where the anti-Israel president made sure he was out playing golf when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came to Washington, D.C., or he would meet with Mr. Netanyahu in very strained, sour, and insincere photo ops and White House press conferences.
It is my hope and prayer President Trump is led by the Holy Spirit of God and is a genuine, true ally and friend of Mr. Netanyahu’s, Israel and the Jews.
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Genesis 12:3 — King James Version Holy Bible
And while it has been beneficial to Israel the United States of America exists and has been a friend to Israel since 1948, Israel does not really need America to exist, thrive, or continue.
For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Malachi 3:6 — King James Version Holy Bible
For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
Isaiah 60:12 — King James Version Holy Bible
If the United States of America did not exist God would have still prevailed and Israel would have come into existence again and prosper. It is not man making Israel, but God.
Israel is not merely another place on earth, another nation, and other people. Israel is God’s chosen Holy Land. Not merely man and woman’s Holy Land. God made it Holy and sacred and precious and apart from all others — not the doing or actions of any man or peoples — it was by the will of God.
Israel is the apple of God’s eye. None other is.
Once established again it will not perish or be removed again.
Israel will again fall under captivity — when the Antichrist and his false prophet seize and rise to world power and domination, and whoever is the leadership of Israel at the time will fall prey to the cunning lies and honey-dripping speech of the Antichrist and sign a treaty with him, which he will break after three and a half years and take the land and the people captive. But Israel will remain. She will not be removed. Although it is going to be worse than any other time in world history for Israel and the Jews and all the true believers suffering on earth then.
But Israel is not dependent on the United States for survival, growth, security. For her existence.
Israel has God. Israel is God’s. And any nation or people thinking they can remove Israel? Remove the Jews? They will then learn there is a God and He is real and what is in the Holy Bible is the greatest and most accurate truth on earth.
God’s Help to Israel
Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.
Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.
He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.
Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he.
The isles saw it, and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, drew near, and came.
They helped every one his neighbour; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage.
So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smootheth with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved.
But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.
Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.
Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel.
When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.
I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together:
That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.
Isaiah 41:1-20 — King James Version Holy Bible
The Redemption of Zion
Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the LORD: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the LORD. 7Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me. Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD. And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee. And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.
Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation.
Zechariah 2:6-13 — King James Version Holy Bible
It was refreshing to watch the video of President Trump and his wife, Melania, greet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, at the White House earlier today. On the surface it appears a new era in U.S. and Israeli relations has begun. Wonderful. Long time overdue.
But let us always keep in mind, in our hearts that God is always in control, God is always at work and God will not change. He will not forsake Israel. All the evil in the world — all of it — cannot and will not ever consume or remove Israel or the Jews.
Does this mean we can shrug, turn against or from Israel and the Jew and say, or think, “God’s taking care of it I don’t need to pay attention or do anything about this?”
We, as the remnant of true believers in and of Jesus Christ the Lord, the Son of God, are one and the same with the Jew, with the people of Israel. We are God’s chosen people. One and the same.
As such we need to pray for and do what we can as measured out to us by the gifts of the Holy Spirit to be not only a friend to Israel, but a brother or sister to our brothers and sisters in Israel.
Pray for Israel. She is becoming more and more secular. Again turning to idols. Turning to the harlot Babylon. Her men are more and more openly sodomites marching and celebrating in the streets as the sexual perverts of the world now openly do, as do her women praising and celebrating sexual perversions woman with woman. She is becoming a land of mass consumption and wealth. Also with increasing poverty. In her abundance and prosperity she is turning from God in many ways.
We need to pray in earnest that the Holy Spirit of God works in Prime Minister Netanyahu, who I have openly written in the past I believe is the best world leader in the world. We need to pray he leads his people to God. To the Bible. Sincerely. And he turns to God and God will continue to bless and protect him.
We need to pray for Israel and her people.
And we need to pray for our enemies and Israel’s enemies that some among them have the scales lifted from their eyes and can finally see the truth, or at least they are hindered, subdued, mired and sidetracked in their unholy evil intent to remove Israel from the face of the earth and exterminate all Jews.
May they be mired down and held at bay to wail and moan as they always do.
We need to pray for President Trump. That he is led by the Holy Spirit and protected by God, and that he is sincere in his desire to be Israel and Mr. Netanyahu’s best ally and friend.
For the time is coming…
Joel 3 — King James Version Holy Bible
The Lord Judges the Nations
For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head; Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things: The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border. Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head: And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it.
Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.
Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.
Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
Blessings for God’s People
So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.
Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.
For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.
Worldly writers and journalists can put down an infinite number of words with regard to U.S. and Israeli relations and history. But they all leave out the most important component in everything they write — God. The Scriptures. The Holy Bible. The whole shebang. All of the history and facts. They never or very rarely ever reference any Scripture whatsoever.
They are of this world. They are serving the prince of this world if they deny or omit God from the equation, the story, the news of it all. They are serving their master Satan if they deny and or omit God Almighty and the inerrant living Word of God in what it is they attempt to convey to the people of this world. Redundant? So are they in their omissions and distortions. Better to be redundant with and for God than with and of this world.
We ought to know better. And live accordingly. Should we not?
Take what the worldly writers, journalists, and talking-heads might write or say with a grain of salt, but we are to be a light unto the world, not hidden, and the salt of the earth — preserving the truth of the Word, flavoring our speech, our lives, our actions with the Word of God and His glory within us to be seen by others so they do not glorify us, or U.S. — but they recognize and glorify the Father. God the Father. Our Father. The Father of Israel. The Father of all His chosen people.
