Israel in the Last Days

“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name; After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid. When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.”
—Ezekiel 39:25-29

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at the opening of the Knesset’s winter session on Monday, saying that Israel’s soldiers had prevented a multi-pronged attack against Israel during Operation Protective Edge.

He touted Israel’s success in destroying Hamas terror infrastructure during the 50-day conflict and thanked the IDF soldiers for their sacrifices during the conflict.

“Last time I stood here it was before Protective Edge, an operation against a criminal terrorist attack,” Netanyahu stated.

“Hamas shot thousands of rockets at Israel’s cities, planned attacks from the air and underground. We stopped most of them. We killed hundreds of terrorists and collapsed the towers of terror,” he added.

“We did not give into the dictates of Hamas that would have endangered Israel,” the prime minister said.

“The Palestinians are demanding a state without peace and without security – they want 1967 borders and the right of return. They won’t take the basic step in making peace – mutual recognition. They demand we recognize them but they won’t recognize us,” Netanyahu charged.

“Israel won’t agree to a Palestinian state without a real peace treaty that will recognize Israel as a nation of Jewish people and include security arrangements,” the prime minister vowed.

What’s the point of drawing a border if you don’t know what state you’ll have on the other side of it? Netanyahu asked, saying that Israel was in danger of having a state run by ISIS (Islamic State) on its borders.

Every inch of territory that we have evacuated has been taken over by extremists, Netanyahu said.

“We don’t want a bi-national state, but we also don’t want another Iranian satellite on our borders,” he said.

Peace cannot be built on lies and illusions, Netanyahu said.

He rejected claims that Israel was attempting to change the status quo at the Temple Mount and said Israel has the right to build in Jerusalem.

    Prime Minister Netanyahu is a refreshing voice of reason and common sense in a world full of violence. While most world leaders and politicians cave to the winds of political correctness, Netanyahu deals with threats of violence and evil against Israel in a matter of fact and decisive manner. God hasn’t forgot His covenant with His land and people, even as the world vilifies them. Many in the evangelical church are turning against them and embracing replacement theology…..clearly an unbiblical stand.

    Prime Minister Netanyahu not only is a great leader, but also is a very compassionate man – empathetic and watchful. No one is too small for recognition and he grieves with those who grieve and knows when the very least of them is in trouble and does everything he can to help.

    The PM is not a coward nor a ‘chicken’ such as America’s numb skull.
