Zech 12:1-3 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
2 behold i will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and Jerusalem
3 and in that day will i make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Joel 3:1 for behold, in those days and at that time, When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,
2 I will also gather all nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat and i will enter judgement 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.
I always wondered how all the nations of the earth can be gathered against Israel at one place, and it became a reality at the United Nations. By their own words, the judgement and condemnation will be sealed against them. Indeed, many nations will be impacted for dividing Jerusalam and Judah. The nations and the people of faith hated the Jews so much because the Jews are God’s special and chosen people. May God keep Singapore safe in these uncertain times.
The people of faith and the united nations of the world have forgotten that they have utterly destroyed God’s very own – the Jewish temple and the treasures within were totally ransacked and destroyed by the Romans (European Union), and later pagan temples were built over by various people of faith. The treasures, the temple, and the mount moriah belongs to the God of Israel. The Jews are God’s heritage to mankind, where Jesus the Messiah came from. God will return for His own in Jesus Christ.
The holy city of Jerusalem and the land of Judah were given to the Jews, and now the nations and people of faith want to divide the land by themselves in the name of peace. But peace they will not have. When they attempt to divide Jerusalem, they are coming against God and God alone, the almighty God who created heavens and the earth, and gave life to mankind. Two thousand years of grace have passed. Judgement is coming against man’s rebellion against God. The God who gave life can also taketh it including entire nations.
In Gen 15:18-21, Israel is the only nation on earth today whose borders are decreed by God. The existing lands of Israel is only a portion of this decree. As the surronding nations come against Israel, God will far extend the current borders of Israel to the decree – including Golan Heights (Golan, Mt Hermon), East Bank (Gilead, Rabbah, Mt Nebo), West Bank (Bethlehem, Jericho, Hebron, Mt Gerazim, Shechem, Masada) and Southern Lebanon (Tyre and Sidon). The two state solution will turn out to be one much larger state.
The nations talk about seeking peace. But peace cannot come without peace with God in Jesus Christ. Perhaps even God Himself is the hindrance to the “peace” process in Jerusalem for they are asking Israel to sign away her inheritance of East Jerusalem, ie the temple mount where millions of Jews died for. It’s to sign away both the past and the future dream of the new temple. They want to legitimise the theft of land from the Jews on account of a shallow arbitrary peace. The nations and the people of faith wants to whitewash the history of the Jews, even the death camps of Europe. But it will be an immovable rock that will demand justice and crushed them instead.
The nations of the world and the people of faith at the UN have now all gathered together in one accord to condemn Israel and to divide Jerusalem, but as they put all their energy and voices to it, this rock that they are trying to move will crush the nations. The judgement will be dumbfounded even to the bravest. They have used the reason of peace, but peace they will not have, for the wrath of God is near to those who made her people desolate. God will divide those who has divided Jerusalem and Judah.
The nations and liberal may criticize and condemn Trump, but i believe he was acting under God’s directive to mark the end of a season of God bringing back the Jewish captives of the diaspora to Jerusalem (for a generation of 120 years from 1897 to 2017) by declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. God planned for the revolt of the nations to come against it in one accord, so that full judgement could be pronounced. It is not Trump, it is God.
The judgement will first come against the nations and people of faith who lay siege against Jerusalem, and Judah, the protestors staying within Judah and the people of faith outside the borders who lauched their rockets every day into Israel. They have worshipped pagan gods and forgotten the awsome power and might of the God of Israel. They have grossly violated the sacred grounds of the Holy Temple. They are now throwing rocks at Israel, but very soon, their strength will be no more.
The creator of the Universe and the creator of mankind is now coming against the nations. They have made God out to be a mystery, but there will be no mystery and a terrible fire of judgement from God almighty. They have preached that God is love but God will come as judge. The nations and people of faith will be forced to accept a terrible judgement which they could not escape and be un-forgiven. The judgement will be great that they will be drunken with the judgement of God, intoxicated into self-destruction. Once the line is crossed, judgement is near.
The nations have forgotten that the God of Israel of the bible is mighty and far more powerful than the gods of Egypt and Rome. He will defend His own. The coming judgement and burden against the nations of the world, and the people of faith will be so heavy until Israel would regain all the lands that were lost and much more including the temple mount without even having to fight for it. For the angelic army of God from the heavens are coming down to fight for Israel against the nations who will be dismayed and confused.
The resultant tribulation will result in the total surrender of the nations giving Israel full control of the promised lands, and gold from the nations to rebuild the new temple at the temple mount. What Israel had lost, they will regain four fold. The remaining of the Jewish diaspora from the US, France, Canada, Russia and South America will finally return bringing the second phase of return of 7 million Jews.
Jesus Christ is the Kings of Kings and the Lord of lords. He came two thousand years ago, as a gentle lamb to declare God’s love and grace and to die for us making a way back to God for us. Mankind not only rejected the gift of salvation but wanted the annihilate the Jews and God’s Holy temple. But Jesus is coming back again back to Jerusalem, to win back the heart of Israel, and to proclaim a final judgement on the nations. The nations and the people of faith want to reject Jesus Christ and His Second coming, for they know that the time of judgement.
In the midst of tribulation, there will be great revival of Christianity in Europe, Russia, and the Middle East that will rock the very foundation of the incumbent faiths. As sin abounds, grace abouds even more. We are living in the year of Jubilee for Israel where all that was lost and stolen shall be returned and this rock that cannot be moved. The borders and land of Israel will end up much larger, and God will bring back the remaining diaspora from US, France, Canada, and UK to Jerusalem.
Father God, we pray that Singapore will be kept safe from trials and tribulations.
