The end of Israel as we know it?

September 17, 2011

JERUSALEM — As summer ends, Israel has become regionally isolated like at no other time in the past 35 years.

Anxiety and alarm seem to define reactions in Jerusalem as Israel momentarily found itself abruptly without an ambassador stationed in the capital of any of its three regional allies: Jordan, Egypt and Turkey, the latter of which expelled the ambassador following Israel’s refusal to apologize for the flotilla raid in which Turkish citizens lost their lives.

Some observers view this moment as a Rubicon from which Israel will not be able to turn back.

Danny Rubinstein, former Arab affairs analyst for Ha’aretz and now a lecturer at Hebrew University, said Israel is paying the price for not having already reached an agreement with the Palestinians.

“If we continue on this path, Israel will turn into either a permanent occupying force or we’ll be a bi-national state,” he said. “Today I no longer see the possibility of dividing Israel into Palestine and Israel. Just look at the geographic and demographic reality.”

As local media grew increasingly preoccupied with the avalanche of bad news, the government seemed incapable of reacting. Instead, the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seemed only dedicated in the past few days to determining who, if anyone, would represent Israel on Sept. 23 at the U.N. General Assembly, when the Palestinians present their case for full recognition of statehood.

Speculation centered on Israel’s firebrand foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, or on its mollifying president, Shimon Peres, who announced that he had offered his services to the government. Finally, on Thursday, Netanyahu declared that he, himself, would offer Israel’s riposte at the U.N.

“The Palestinians are making real decisions and moving forward with their plans, and here, in our government, whether or not Netanyahu decides to give a speech is considered his big decision of the week,” derided opposition leader Tsippi Livni.

India and Pakistan are the powerhouses of South Asia as well as historic enemies. How do their military forces stack up today?

In preparation for any possible upheaval in the wake of the vote — even if few, if any, real changes will be felt — Israel authorized the Palestinian Authority’s purchase of anti-riot gear normally used by Israel police.

Increasing the tension, Ma’en Areikat, the Palestinian ambassador to the United States, announced last week that Jews would not be welcome to reside in any future Palestinian state.

“As a first step we need to be totally separated,” Areikat said. “After the experience of the last 44 years, of military occupation and all the conflict and friction, I think it will be in the best interest that the two peoples should be separated.”

Late last Friday night a mob in Cairo rammed the retaining wall around the building housing the Israeli embassy and invaded the mission, housed on the upper floors, trapping six security guards. In Saturday’s dawn hours two Israeli air force jets were dispatched to bring 85 diplomats and family members to safe harbor in Israel, leaving only a deputy ambassador and two guards in Egypt for the first time since 1979.

Fearing a repeat action at protests that have been announced in Amman, Israel evacuated its Jordanian embassy on Wednesday.

Yitzhak Levanon, the repatriated ambassador to Egypt who is awaiting orders to return to Cairo, described seeing “tanks and Egyptian soldiers standing by” as angry crowds approached, but no action taken to quell the riots until he desperately called for commandos to be deployed.

Despite his experience, he believes the situation is reversible. “I think that Egyptian decision-makers understand what it would mean to return to an era of hostilities,” Levanon said.

Rubinstein, however, disagreed.

“It has been clear for decades that Israel’s peace treaties with neighboring states are agreements among a cadre of politicians, and won’t survive without the support of the people. That’s why I’m not surprised by the crises with Egypt and Turkey. It could easily spread to Jordan and North Africa. I’m only surprised this didn’t happen sooner.” – Global Post

The nation of Israel, or those Promised?

Romans 9:8 “That is, it is not the children by physical descent who are God’s children, but the children of the promise are considered seed.”

What is “seed?” It is the new start of a whole future generation of mankind.

Israel is on its own, but the Spiritual Israelites, they are being fought for, even as I post this. The fight is for their deliverance, just as our Mother delivered those in ancient time out of Egyptian bondage.

So if you are forced to wear the sign of the beast, will that nullify you from being part of the seed, or will your mind remain on our Creator and Savior Christ, and like this old world, will those marks on your forehead or hand mean this to you?

Exodus 13:9 “Let it serve as a sign for you on your hand and as a reminder on your forehead, so that the law of the LORD may be in your mouth; for the LORD brought you out of Egypt with a strong hand.’”

Public declaration, or public denial of Christ and Yahweh is what separates good seeds from bad seeds. Remember that. Dying is not your first choice, because:

Psalm 115:17 It is not the dead who praise the LORD, nor any of those descending into the silence [of death].”

Keep praising our Mother no matter what is done to your vessel of flesh.

    Please explain spiritual Israelites? Who are they and where did they come from?

    • September 18, 2011 at 1:34 PM | #2

      At one time, the Israelites were the Creator’s chosen people. They typified the things that were to come in later times. Jesus came through the Jewish line, and the message he preached was first directed to them. Later, it was extended to everyone, because he died for all of Mankind. But, the Jew’s rejected Christ. He had interrupted their traditions, and more so, took away the power they possessed over the people. Him coming as a Teacher that displayed miracles, and his profound knowledge left them feeling displaced in God’s order of things; so, they conspired to get rid of him. But, are they cursed? No.

      All of the things that happened to Christ were foretold by the prophets beforehand. His birth, ministry and death on a torture state, etc. So, the Jews actually fulfilled the prophecies with Satan’s help; although Satan helped unintentionally. He did not understand the ramifications of what that sacrificial death meant to him.

      Today, God’s people are the Spiritual Israelites – not the nation of Israel. It is the heart of each person, whether he is Jew or Gentile, determines whether or not he or she will be with Christ. Non acceptance of him at present does not constitute a permanent death sentence. What will do that is after the Rapture if they do not open their hearts to him. Those that don’t believe Christ is the true Messiah will be left behind. During that time many will come to realize that Christ did indeed come to take back those he promised he would. But, a second chance for Salvation will be extended. Some will follow the anti-Christ, while others will have a change of heart and seek Christ. Those are the ones that will survive Armageddon and be accepted into Christ’s Kingdom with those that had already previously left at the Rapture.

      It all boils down to each person’s heart condition. It is better to be in the first resurrection (Rapture) than to be in the second, because of the hardship that awaits those during the current Tribulation period.

      There have been millions of people that have crossed over that were not of Christian faith; yet, when counseled before entry into the Light, they accepted the truth of Christ and his Kingdom. That and a good heart is all it took to get them through the Light. And, you cannot fool the Creator or Christ. They know the true heart condition. So, it will be the same for those that live up to the time of Armageddon.

    so then ,,this isn’t what is refferred to as replacement theology?

    • September 18, 2011 at 3:16 PM | #4

      I had to look up what “Replacement Theology” is. By definition it is: “Replacement theology teaches that the church is the replacement for Israel and that the many promises made to Israel in the Bible are fulfilled in the Christian church, not in Israel.”

      The answer is, no. This is solid, 100% Yahweh’s Truth. If Replacement Theology categorizes all Christian Churches as spiritual israelites, they are not accounting for the heart conditions of those within the churches.

      The Spiritual Israelites are Yahweh’s faithful remnant, based on their heart conditions – People of all nationalities, regardless of race, color or religion are open to the Salvation of Christ.

      You may want to refer to the Kingdom Message of Salvation to review what is required for salvation.
