NETANYAHU’S DEFIANCE TO THE UNITED NATIONS (The following was excerpted fromFriday Church News Notes, www.wayoflife.org, and posted on manifested by the light.com
- Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was defiant in his speech to the United Nations on October 1. He quoted the Bible five times, and proclaimed his faith that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob would establish Israel in her land according to His promises. He cited the Persian king Cyrus’s edict for Israel to return to the land and rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem, and called upon Iran, the modern incarnation of Persia, to stop fighting against Israel. Netanyahu said that “presidents of Iran have come and gone, and (yet) we re-established our sovereign state in our ancestral homeland, the land of Israel” (“Netanyahu prophetically correct at UN,” Israel Today, Oct. 3, 2013). Israel’s Prime Minister boldly exposed Iran’s terrorism and denounced it as a “rogue regime.” He said that if necessary, Israel would stand alone in dealing with Iran’s nuclear threat. He quoted from Deuteronomy 33, which promises that the eternal God is Israel’s refuge, that Israel will dwell in safety alone, and that Israel’s enemies will be found to be liars. Netanyahu concluded by saying, “The people of Israel have come home never to be uprooted again.” He quoted Amos’ prophecy of the restoration of Israel to the land (Amos 9:14-15), but what Netanyahu does not understand is that Israel is back in the land today in an apostate condition and that she is still under God’s judgment for rejecting her own Messiah. The Messianic prophecies will not be fulfilled until Israel receives the Messiah. The glory of God left Israel before the destruction of the First Temple and it has never returned. After Israel accepts the Antichrist’s lying peace program and rebuilds her temple, she will again be scattered during the Tribulation. Netanyahu quoted from Jesus in his speech (calling Iran’s leader a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”), but if Netanyahu believed in Jesus as the Messiah he would understand these things, for Jesus prophesied of Israel’s history in the clearest of terms in Matthew 24. “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains. ... For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Mat. 24:15-16, 21).
