Let me put it more plainly: no true, genuine prophet will ever divorce His Lord and Master, Yeshua the Messiah, from the people and land where He manifested at His First Coming and to which He will return at His Second Coming. It is impossible to prophesy truthfully in His Name while utterly disregarding, ignoring the significance of the restoration of Israel. A genuine prophet sent by the Lord will not see himself separate from the Commonwealth of Israel because his spiritual eyes, ”enlightened" by the Light Yeshua, and “converted” into understanding by the Holy Spirit, see him not only as a member of the Body of Messiah, but also as a co-heir and fellow-citizen of Yeshua’s people, Israel, the Jews.
Consequently, his vision is peripheral. For, since Yeshua lives in Him and is enthroned in his heart, and he, the prophet, lives, and moves, and has his being in Him, he is positioned at once both in the heavenly places as well as at the “center” of the earth, Israel, even at the “navel” of it – Jerusalem. It is from THIS position that he sees the events unfolding on this earth, and he will see with perfect clarity.
America is NOT the “promised” Land, although for many it was and is. The American people are a mixed multitude from many nations across the globe, of different ethnic backgrounds, faiths, and race. They are NOT G-d’s covenant people, although a large number of them live in America as well. Most Christians firmly believe that America got so blessed by G-d because of the nation’s Christian “founders”. Most Christians do not at all connect G-d’s blessing America with the Jews who found a peaceful harbor in this land when driven once again out of their homes and possession in another guestland. Yet in every city of America where there live Jews prayers are made in synagogue on behalf of that city and of America. The American people enjoy special hospital care, libraries, parks and other beneficial social structures and enterprises without realizing that these were donated by Jews.
Every nation, which received Jews and allowed them to live and prosper among them in peace, got blessed by G-d and increased in power. Every nation which turned against the Jews, persecuting, robbing, murdering them and driving them from their homes and possessions, lost G-d’s special favor and was diminished in greatness. The day that America’s Jews will leave her shores to return to their own and divinely promised Land, the tide of America’s power will recede as will her wealth.
I have listened to most Christian leaders in America, and of those most prominent only a handful have understood their place BOTH in the Body of Messiah AND in Israel.
But most of the prominent TV ministers, intercessors and Pastors of mega churches have so focused on the (Gentile) Church and on America and her ills, they cannot see anymore anything beyond that. THEIR Jesus is evidently NOT Jewish, nor is THEIR Jesus interested in the nation Israel and what is done to and in her. They defend the war in Iraq, even though G-d has not gone with it.
If you read my newsletter Vol. 45, you will see that what the Lord said BEFORE the President sent troops to Iraq has come to pass and is still going on. The situation is comparable to the one when the children of Israel were to go into the Promised Land and take it, G-d going with them. But because of the ill report by the 10 spies they refused. Afterwards they repented and said they would go and do what the Lord had said. This time, however, Moses warned them that the Lord would not go with them. They did not heed and suffered great losses.
No true, genuine prophet of the Lord will defend the ongoing war in Iraq. It was neither the time nor the season for this second invasion. Yes, Saddam is (was) presently incapacitated to commit his evil deeds. While he tolerated other religions but kept the fanatic Shi’ites under fist control, now these same fanatic elements are creating pandemonium in all of Iraq. And there will be no end to it. For while Saddam wanted himself worshiped and not Allah and thereby withstood that principality of Islam, President Bush opened the door to this principality without even so much as realizing it.
BUT THE PROPHETS SHOULD HAVE REALIZED IT! THE PROPHETS SHOULD HAVE KNOWN AND WARNED AGAINST THE TIMING OF THIS ILL ADVISED WAR!
Let us consider what is written in Jeremiah 38:2-6, 14-24 [LB), where Jeremiah delivered the words of the Lord, saying that everyone remaining in Jerusalem would die by sword, starvation or disease, but anyone surrendering [deserting] to the Babylonians would live; and that the city of Jerusalem would surely be captured by the king of Babylon. Then the leaders of the people went to the king and said, “Sir, this fellow must die. That kind of talk will undermine the morale of the few soldiers we have left, and of all the people too. This man is a traitor.”
Their “patriotic” feelings were aroused by Jeremiah and they were enraged against him, absolutely SURE that these words were not from G-d. Ha! And they threw Jeremiah into a pit full of mire. After Ebed-melech, the black eunich, had rescued Jeremiah from drowning in the mire, king Zedekiah sent for Jeremiah, demanding that he tell the truth and hide nothing from him. Then Jeremiah said, “If I tell you the truth, you will kill me. And you won’t listen to me anyway.”
Now, beloved, when and if a genuine prophet of G-d will come and speak the truth to the President and America’s leaders and to your religious leaders, what will they do? Will they honor and reward this prophet for speaking the truth? Will they even believe that he speaks from G-d? And even if they would believe, would they obey?
Trust me, neither Chuck Pierce, nor Dutch Sheets, nor Cindy Jacobs, or what all the names of the “big ones” are, would be ever again invited onto the speaker circuit. They would be silenced for having spoken the truth, most probably by the CIA. Dutch’s concern for America and the ills that have befallen her are righteous and godly. You can identify with the things he says he has heard from G-d and his call to repentance. And he tells you if you pray this Christian Judge in and that Christian Senator and… and… and… then it will be well with America. How so?
Is not President Bush supposed to be a believer in Yeshua? Or is it the Gentile Jesus Christ? For Yeshua of Nazareth did not counsel President Bush to have a state of Palestine formed upon the divinely covenanted land. Yeshua of Nazareth did not counsel the President to invite Moslem leaders into the White House for Ramadan. Yeshua of Nazareth did not counsel the President to insist on driving the Jews out of Gush Kativ. Yeshua of Nazareth does not call Judea and Samaria “Westbank”, for He is the Lion of Judah - not of the Westbank - and any man or woman claiming to belong to Yeshua of Nazareth would know that.
Yet President Bush Jr. seems to be utterly ignorant of these matters. Then why do these prophets continue to tell you that President Bush is a true believer in Yeshua? Why, when President George Bush Sr. called [East] Jerusalem – which is the city of the Great King - “occupied territory,” did America’s prophets and intercessors not speak up in the hearing of the President and overturn this curse?
And why, when Bethlehem1, the city of King David and of Yeshua’s Birth, was given to His enemy upon demand by President Clinton, did these prophets and intercessors not fall on their faces, fasting in sackcloth and ashes, to overturn this evil deed and turn away the curse on America?
And why, when Clinton insisted on Hebron2 – which is the birth-place of the Jewish people, their patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob having dwelled there, where Abraham’s wife Sarah died and was buried in the cave of Machpelah Abraham had bought with the surrounding field; the inheritance of Caleb the Jephunite and of the sons of Aaron the priest, and one of the cities of refuge - to be handed over to God’s enemies, did these prophets and intercessors not tremble before the Almighty, the Holy One of Israel, and overturn this evil deed with fasting and prayer?
Just as we who belong to Yeshua can do nothing apart from Him3, likewise America’s greatness and prosperity is not her own accomplishment but is from God4. Once the curses5 incurred by these evil deeds will nullify God’s blessings, America’s greatness and prosperity will become a thing of the past.
It is not of the sinners that God expects righteousness, justice and acting in accordance with His express Word and will. It is of the Body of Messiah representing His Kingdom in the earth that He requires it, and of those who are set apart to give counsel, instructions and direction, to teach and guide and to intercede, He demands it.
But - many Christian leaders of prominence, prophets and intercessors
of repute, have developed “tunnel vision”!
