The Prophetic Peace Plan--government vs God
There were three stories over the weekend that had prophetic significance to every American. One was the lighting of the Christmas tree at the White House, another was the election outcome in Egypt, and the other was a public showing of disdain for Israel by the Secretary of Defense. All were seemingly unrelated, but they serve as examples of a deeper problem in American foreign policy that has long reaching prophetic consequences. Neither the man who occupies the Oval Office nor his Administration understand who God is and the truth about God's people and God's ways. America, under this Administration, has taken a harsh turn that places our nation as an active prophetic tool of God's enemies.
In lighting the White House Christmas Tree, the president said, "More than 2,000 years ago, a child was born to two faithful travelers who could find rest only in a stable, among the cattle and the sheep. But this was not just any child. Christ's birth made the angels rejoice and attracted shepherds and kings from afar. He was a manifestation of God's love for us. And He grew up to become a leader with a servant's heart who taught us a message as simple as it is powerful: that we should love God, and love our neighbor as ourselves." The president has always missed the point about Jesus. He continues to characterize Jesus as a great leader and a servant who just taught us to treat one another well--it's the Islamic Jesus.The express purpose of the Christ is found in Isaiah 9:6, "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The prince of Peace." Apart from Jesus Christ, there can be no peace. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was reported by Reuters to have scolded Israel and told Israel to get back to the "damn" negotiating table with the Palestinians. This Administration misses the point entirely. Giving land to the so-called Palestinians, whose sole objective according to their organizations' charters is to drive the Jews into the sea, will never create peace.There is a peace plan in place. It is found in nearly every prophet's book in the Bible, including Revelation. It's called The Day of the Lord, where Jesus Christ returns to earth to set things straight. And it is about land--the deed to the earth that only Christ himself is worthy to open as found in Revelation 5. No amount of land given to Palestinians will bring peace. Only the Prince of Peace will bring peace--not those posing as god via government. The third story about how the leaders of the West were surprised that radical Islamists were winning elections in Islamic lands shows us the foolishness of America's leaders in supporting Islamists--that they are tools of prophecy ushering in the end times, but doing so by standing with evil. Prepare for the consequences.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!Bill Wilson
