ISRAEL’S HELP IS IN THE L-RD

The primary intention of G-d in taking the forefathers of the Jewish people out of Egypt was for them to observe G-d’s commandments and for G-d to use them to show Himself and His power to the pagan nations of the day. However, they did not obey or listen to G-d’s commandments; instead they did evil and, instead of spiritually growing in the L-rd, once in Canaan, they went backwards.

The sad thing is this could be speaking of Israel today as, instead of growing spiritually, the majority of Jews in Israel instead of turning to G-d have turned away from G-d.

If there is one person on earth in whose shoes I would not like stand, it is Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. The odds and threats that he and Israel have to face are enormous, even seemingly overwhelming…From the surrounding Arab nations, the USA, the EU, the UN, and even within its border in Gaza and the West Bank.

How does one effectively defend a country, the size Manhattan, against more than ten surrounding hostile nations who are bent on your destruction; trying to appease a world where world opinion is against you, the world watching you, just waiting for you to make a mistake so that they can equate you with the Holocaust and call you an apartheid state.
Well, this is what the Israeli government and Binyamin Netanyahu have to do; and on top of that, anti-Semitism is growing on a daily basis worldwide.

The answer is: you can’t!
There is only one guaranteed solution to the difficulties Israel and the Israeli government has to face, Almighty G-d.

The greatest ruler of Israel, King David, also faced huge odds; yet he was always victorious in battle. What was the secret of his constant success? He inquired of the L-rd.

1 Samuel 23:1-4: “Then they told David, saying,” “Look, the Philistines are fighting against Keilah, and they are robbing the threshing floors.” Therefore David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I go and attack these Philistines?” And the LORD said to David, “Go and attack the Philistines, and save Keilah.” But David's men said to him, “Look, we are afraid here in Judah. How much more then if we go to Keilah against the armies of the Philistines?” Then David inquired of the LORD once again. And the LORD answered him and said, “Arise, go down to Keilah. For I will deliver the Philistines into your hand.””

2 Samuel 5:19: “So David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You deliver them into my hand?” And the LORD said to David, “Go up, for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into your hand.””

2 Samuel 5:22-24: “Then the Philistines went up once again and deployed themselves in the Valley of Rephaim. Therefore David inquired of the LORD, and He said, “You shall not go up; circle around behind them, and come upon them in front of the mulberry trees. And it shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly. For then the LORD will go out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines.””

From the above scriptures we clearly see how, as David continually inquired of the L-rd. And G-d gave David supernatural victory - and each time G-d’s strategy was different.

And this is what Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, his cabinet and the Israel Defence Force have to do. They have to stop looking to themselves for answers; they have to stop doing it their way and rather do it G-d’s way.

My plea to Mr Netanyahu and to his cabinet is to look at the example of Israel’s greatest ruler – King David – and, instead of looking to themselves for answers, to inquire of the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and allow Him to lead and guide them to that perfect solution and victory.

My fervent prayer for Israel – the government and the people - is that, like King David, they will say: “Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”


 

 

G-D’S JUDGMENT

Zechariah 12:9: “It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”

The cowardly and barbaric assault on innocent Jewish worshippers in the Har Nof synagogue in Jerusalem is one of the bloodiest terrorist attacks on Israel in years.
We at Emet Ministries totally condemn this disgusting, barbaric and cowardly terrorist attack.

Can you imagine what would happen if Jews – or anybody for that matter - would go into a mosque and kill worshippers.
You would get the usual frenzied Arab response of guns being fired in the air; flags of Israel and the US and effigies being burned; Arabs throwing stones and rioting.

The majority of Israelis, on the other hand, after a terrorist attack, quietly go about with their lives, keeping their grief and anger to themselves.

And what about the response of the world?
When Israelis respond to provocation, it is “the disproportionate response of Israel”.
Although President Obama condemned the Har Nof synagogue terrorist attack, in my opinion it was a very quiet condemning of the attack.
I hardly heard any condemnation from other world leaders.
Again, when Arabs are killed or injured, Israel is horribly condemned by the world.

And world leaders are recognizing Palestine as a nation…how sick. But what can you expect from ignorant, ungodly leaders of nations.

But what about the church?
Well, much of the church is strangely quiet about the cowardly and dastardly attack on the Jewish worshippers. And much of the church stands with the Arabs living in the West bank and Gaza against Israel.

Now this is something I cannot understand.
Hasn’t the church realised that the enemies of Israel are also the enemies of Jesus?

On top of this, many in the church support a ‘two state solution’ which means dividing Jerusalem, as both Fattah and Hamas see Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.
I wonder if some church leaders read and have an understanding of G-d’s prophetic word and G-d’s covenantal promises to the Jewish people.
It seems not.
If they did have an understanding of G-d’s prophetic word and G-d’s covenantal promises to the Jewish people, they would never support Israel’s enemies; neither would they support a “two-state solution”.
And clearly some church leaders seem to have no inkling of G-d’s judgment on those who go against the Jewish people, Israel and Jerusalem.

Let me remind the church and the world about G-d’s judgment which we read in the bible in the book of Joel chapter three: “For behold, in those days and at that time…I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land…The LORD also will roar from Zion, And utter His voice from Jerusalem; The heavens and earth will shake; But the LORD will be a shelter for His people, And the strength of the children of Israel. “So you shall know that I am the LORD your God, Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain. Then Jerusalem shall be holy, and no aliens shall ever pass through her again…Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom a desolate wilderness, because of violence against the people of Judah, for they have shed innocent blood in their land. But Judah shall abide forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.””

I end with the scripture I began with, Zechariah 12:9: “It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”
