Obama seeks to reassure Israel on Mideast policy in speech at AIPAC conference
While the president’s core message differed little, Obama appeared to have succeeded in easing the concerns of some Israelis who had sharply criticized his speech Thursday.
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who met with Obama for more than two hours Friday, issued a statement saying he was “determined to work with President Obama to find ways to renew peace negotiations.”
“I share the president’s desire to advance peace and I appreciate his efforts, past and present, to achieve this goal,” Netanyahu said in a statement released by his office.
The Israeli leader, initially angered by Obama’s call for 1967 border lines as a starting point for negotiations, has since told aides that he is reassured about Obama’s intentions after their talks Friday.
Romans 11:25, 26 “So that you will not be conceited, brothers, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery: a partial hardening has come to Israel until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written: The Liberator will come from Zion; He will turn away godlessness from Jacob.”
The Israelites of modern day are no longer Yahweh’s chosen people – this scripture is not speaking of the Israelite nation. It is speaking of the Spiritual Israelites – those who are found faithful in these End Times (both in the physical and spiritual realms) who make up the Spiritual flock.
The “Gentiles” are those that have not yet accepted the Truth, and Father’s patience is awaiting them, but the opportune time is nearly run out. Just as Jacob exists on the other side at present, it is symbolism that Yahweh uses in all things She conveys – so that Her Wisdom is hidden in deep meanings of the Word and must be mined like fine silver or gold to attain in understanding of what She really means.
