Shabbat (Sabbath) begins on Fridays at 6pm and ends on Saturdays at 6pm. The purpose is to help the church and Israel become reconciled in Messiah and to identify the rift, and the needed restoration. There is much in the church that needs to change before it can be fully reconciled with the Jew. Likewise, changes in Jewish thinking are also needed.
Edition 426: July 17th 2018
Cursing or Blessing Israel:
We are on the verge of great worldwide calamity, war and destruction and the judgement of God. And it’s all centred on Israel and God’s will and plan.
The Jews, Israel and Jerusalem are the focus of God’s work now. Israel, the church and the world are all ripe! Many of God’s people are focussing on these things now too.
Those who come against, Israel are in fact, cursing themselves!
It’s always a good idea to establish what, or who God is blessing and join with them! You could call that, ‘enlightened self interest.’ But, it’s much, much more than that!
Genesis 12:3 “I will bless him who blesses you and curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Defining the Palestinians:
The Bible speaks of the twins Esau and Jacob. Esau was the origination of the Arabs today. Jacob is the origination of the Jews. Ishmael also refers to the modern day Arabs. Edom and Moab today are also references to modern day Arabs and Palestinians. Islam is the predominant religion.
In reality there is no such thing as a true Palestinian or Palestinian state, but that’s another story.
Cursing Israel – the definition:
Cursing Israel is seen in two areas:
●Anti-Semitism is the action of coming against Israel and the Jews by the world. It includes political, verbal, military, terror and economic areas – the BDS Movement (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions), is an example of economic anti-Semitism.
●Replacement theology is the church arm of cursing Israel. It presumes that the church has replaced Israel, that the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people or have any defined prophetic role in God’s plans. They maintain that the word, “Jerusalem” must be replaced with the “church” and that there is no place for a Zionist state. By logical extension, they are anti -dispensations, and post tribulation rapture believers. Replacement theology is also called supersessionism, meaning that the church has superseded Israel. They believe that all the blessings in the Bible for the Jews, are now for the church, while all the curses are for the Jews. It is largely held by the churches of cessationism. These are the Spirit-less churches who reject the baptism in the Spirit, claiming that the gifts have ceased.
Both anti-Semitism and replacement theology, are essentially of the spirit of error, and both are championed by the mass-media, being Satan’s mouthpiece in these days. Both are cursed practises and belief systems.
I have always maintained that replacement theology leads to replacement reality! In fact replacement theology leads to anti-Semitic thinking and behaviour and ultimately to the antichrist.
God’s covenant with the Jews is eternal and unbreakable. It breaks those who oppose it!
Blessing Israel – the definition:
Blessing Israel is also found in two main areas:
●Blessing Israel works in that it brings blessing, even if the people involved are not saved, or even if it is a nation as a whole. The blessings come in many areas, primarily material.
●Blessing Israel from a Christian perspective involves standing with and supporting God’s prophetic word, plans and ways for Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. It believes in dispensations and a pre-tribulation rapture. It maintains a literal approach to prophecy. It brings blessings in material things and huge, as yet-unknown, future rewards for its adherents. It produces many spiritual blessings and fruits. It is a position hated by the mass-media and the world-system.
There is growing, widening division between churches of replacement theology and those who reject it. There are also a large number of churches changing their position and now standing with Israel.
Just in case you were not aware, The Prophetic Scroll stands heavily against the entire anti-Israel crowd on all fronts, and is strongly pro- God’s prophetic word on Israel.
Anti-Semitism and replacement theology is self-destruction! It is cursing yourself.
The funny thing is that one of the tenets of replacement theology is that they believe the curses of the Bible are now for the Jews, while all the blessings are for the church. But here is God’s position:
Deuteronomy 30:7 “The Lord your God will put all these curses on your (Israel) enemies and those who hate you and persecuted you.”
Malachi 2:2 “If you will not give glory to My name, says the Lord of hosts, I will send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings.”
The context of the verse above includes God’s work with Israel. So, churches of replacement theology...even your blessings are cursed!
At the end of the day, you can temporarily frustrate the plans of God, to your own detriment, but you cannot reverse or stop God!
Numbers 23:8 “How shall I curse whom God has not cursed?”
Numbers 23:20 “I have received a command to bless; He has blessed and I can't reverse it.”
Those who think they are neutral!
There is no such thing as neutrality when it comes to the things of God!
Matthew 12:30 “He who is not with me is against Me, and whoever does not gather with Me scatters.”
Those who think they are neutral are absolutely not. They are deceived, spineless and lukewarm! (Revelation 3:16, Isaiah 5:20)
These are they who put light for dark and dark for light. If your vision in these things is blurred and of mixed opinion, you are in the dark – how great is your darkness. (Matthew 6:23)
Proverbs 24:24-25 “He who says the wicked are righteous, him the people will curse and nations will abhor him. But those who rebuke the wicked will have delight and a good blessing will come.”
Neutrality, in the face of evil is a curse!
An amazing discourse:
God spoke to Nehemiah and told him to rebuild the wall surrounding Jerusalem. The wall represents the contained security and well-being of the children of Israel. (Nehemiah 2:10)
Nehemiah 4:1 “When Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, he was furious and indignant and mocked the Jews.”
Sanballat was a Persian leader. (Iran today)The name means “The secret enemy.”
Nehemiah 4:7-9 “When Sanballat and the Arabs heard that the walls of Jerusalem were being restored, they became very angry and all of them conspired together to come and attack Jerusalem and create confusion. Nevertheless we made our prayer to God and because of them, we set a watch against them day and night.”
Nehemiah 4:15 “It happened to our enemies that God had brought their counsel to nothing...”
Nehemiah 6:16 “When all our enemies heard of the rebuilding, all the nations around us were disheartened in their own eyes, because they perceived that this work was being done by God.”
In this incredible, powerful discourse we see: ●The call of God to the Jews, the indignation and mocking of the Jews by the Arabs, which would include Islam today. ●We see that they are really the secret enemy with no intentions of peace. ●We see a large conspiracy (UN, EU today) ●We see them trying to create confusion. (Satan is the god of confusion.) ● We see the counsel of the nations coming to nothing. ●We see the need for watchmen. ●We see that God is doing this work.
Isn’t this the entire Israel situation, in one portion of scripture? Amazing indeed!
Add to this the story of Balak, the king of Moab (Jordan / Palestinians today), who hired Balaam to curse the Israelis who were moving into their God-given land at the time.
This is a type of the curse of replacement theology and anti-Semitism, ahead of the Jews moving into their spiritual land of salvation in these days.
The short version is that Balaam could not curse Israel. He tried, but could only speak blessing. Prophetically, this means that those who come against Israel will ultimately fail!
The doctrine of Balaam, which is to curse Israel, is found in a most telling accusation against the church of Pergamos. (Revelation 2:14-15). This same church also holds to the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, hated by our Lord. This is the doctrine that separates the clergy above the laity in dress, title and the like, to keep them subservient to the leader, even while coming against Israel.
What an amazing thing! Here we see God condemning part of the church for what is today, the curse of replacement theology and placing stumbling blocks in front of Israel!
Isn’t this a warning to all churches not to mess with Israel?
By the way, the Jews never displaced anyone from a country that never existed. Jerusalem was never the capital of a non-existent state called Palestine. Israel never went to war to occupy any land that was not God given to them by God. Look it up!
These bones don’t die!
The Nazi’s tried to put all the Jews in their graves. But Jewish graves full of dry bones are suddenly flying open, alive. Don’t count on very dry, burnt bones being dead!
Ezekiel 37:3 “Can these bones live?”
Ezekiel 37:11-12 “These bones are the whole house of Israel...they are very dry and our hope is lost. O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come out and bring you into the land of Israel...I will put My Spirit in you and shall live, and I will place you in your own land.”
Micah 7:8-9 “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall I will arise, when I sit in darkness the Lord will be a light to me...He will bring me forth to the light, and I will see His righteousness.
Isaiah 4:2-4 “Those of Israel who have escaped and those who remain in Zion and Jerusalem, will be called holy, when the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the blood of Jerusalem, by the spirit of judgement and by the spirit of burning.”
So you think you can curse the Jews? You champion fool!
Ezekiel 13:18 “...Will you hunt the souls of My people and keep yourselves alive?”
Amos 9:15 “I will plant them in their land, and no longer (Lit=never again) shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them, says the Lord your God.”
Do you think this is all a matter of opinions? Do you think these are not important issues? What if I told you that your views on Israel today will curse you or bless you? Do you know that your views on this subject have eternal consequences not only for you, but others who you influence?
If you don’t like what I’ve just said, you can take your scissors and cut the following three verses out of your Bible. Then you can’t see them, but you will still be cursed.
Deuteronomy 30:7 “The Lord your God will put all these curses on your (Israel) enemies and those who hate you and persecuted you.”
Deuteronomy 27:17 “Cursed is the one who moves his neighbour’s landmark. And all the people shall say Amen,”
Deuteronomy 27:18 “Cursed is the one who makes the blind to wander off the road. And all the people say, ‘Amen.’”
Cursing God’s word:
John 8:37 “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants, (Pharisees) but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you.” (Matthew 12:14, Mark 3:6)
The spirit of error is hostile to the spirit of truth. The spirit of error sought to kill our Lord. The spirit of error seeks to kill Jews and God’s plans for Israel. The spirit of error is behind the cursed, satanic replacement theology.
The Spirit-less churches do have a powerful voice. It is the same voice of the mass-media. It is the voice of a host of evil satanic spirits. It casts down a great part of God’s word.
Preacher, do you want to preach to get great numbers and much money, but with no godly results? Just preach against God’s plans for Israel. Replace those thousands of verses with your own fancy, dead, lifeless philosophy.
Preachers of replacement theology are destroyers of biblical interpretation, and exegesis. They are a brood of poisonous vipers.
The fall and rise of Israel:
God commanded Hosea to take a harlot wife. This was a type of God’s view on Israel's harlotry! Hosea’s wife had a daughter which God told him to name “Lo ru Hama”. The name means “Not pitied.” She then bore a son whom God named “Lo Ammi.” The name means “not My people.” (Hosea 1:6-8). These names were prophetic of Israel’s rebellion and fall.
Hosea 1:10 “...In the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people’, there it shall be said to them, ‘You are the sons of the living God.’”
What an amazing story! Israel’s rebellion produced - “Not My people”, “not pitied”, but then the grand turn-around and conclusion – “sons of the living God”!
Romans 11:25-27 “Don’t be ignorant of this mystery, lest you be wise in your own opinion, that hardening in part has happened to Israel.”
Romans 11:2 “God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew...”
Thanks to so many verses like the one above, we now have that same foreknowledge! We know all about Israel’s future, and we stand with her and bless her!
Hosea 2:23 “I will sow her (Israel) for Myself in the earth, and I will have mercy on her who had not obtained mercy; Then I will say to those who were not My people, ‘you are My people’! And they shall say, ‘You are My God.’”
What incredible drama, and it’s all happening now!
The fall of Israel was a messy affair, but the regathering, arising and soon-coming salvation is an exact affair. God uses accurate measuring instruments to describe His work. These He uses for the land, the city and the people.
He uses a “surveyor’s line” and a “plum-line.”
Zechariah 1:15-17 “I am zealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with great zeal. I am exceedingly angry with the nations at ease...Therefore thus says the Lord: ‘I am returning to Jerusalem with mercy, My house shall be built in it’, says the Lord of hosts. A surveyors line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem...The Lord will again comfort Zion and again choose Jerusalem.”
So, the stupid, blind nations of the world think they can divide Jerusalem! (Joel 3:2)
Amos 7:7-8 “Behold the Lord stood on a wall made with a plumb-line, with a plumb-line in His hand. And the Lord said to me, ‘Amos, what do you see’? I said, ‘a plumb-line.’ Then the Lord said, ‘I am setting a plumb-line in the midst of My people, Israel. I will not pass by them anymore.’”
Jeremiah 4:1 “If you return, O Israel, says the Lord, return to Me, and if you put away your abominations from My sight, then you shall not be moved.”
Insanity and madness:
The Bible is so full of descriptions, and incredible prophecies of Israel’s fall, regathering and coming salvation that you have to be insane, mad or demon possessed, not to see it. Yet much of the church, all of the mass media, and the world have set themselves up to be cursed by God.
Obadiah 1:2-3 Behold, I will make you (Edom – Jordan / Palestinians) small among the nations; you shall be greatly despised. The pride of your heart has deceived you...You say in your heart, ‘Who will bring me down to the ground?”
Isaiah 34:5 “My sword shall be bathed in heaven; indeed it shall come down on Edom, and on the people of My curse for judgement.”
A large part of the church will try to take saved Jews to Babylon again! End-time Babylon is a type of the world-system, with a cursed religious system of paganism, which the Catholic’s introduced into the church, essentially to keep the Jews out.
The job of the church is to keep the doctrine of the Catholics out, not the Jews. The job of the church is to keep itself and converted Jews free from a new Babylonian captivity.
The job of the church is to take the pure gospel to the Jew first. The job of the church is to make the Jew jealous through the grace we have in the undiluted truth.
The highly successful early church never conformed to Babylon and Rome for one second. They were in fact slaughtered by Rome.
Jeremiah 27:18 “If they are prophets and the word of the Lord is with them, let them make intercession that those left in the house of the Lord, of Judah and Jerusalem, do not go to Babylon.”
Many churches today are a conformist, compromised home of Roman hogwash – no place for Jews. Many of today’s churches are in fact the “hunters” of Jeremiah 16:16, hunting down the Jews.
How to bless Israel:
Let the Lord lead you. But if you are fortunate enough, and blessed enough to be a true Christian at this time in these days, you should have a method of blessing Israel, especially if you are a pastor.
Stand with Israel in prayer. Agree with God’s word on Israel, and actively reject that which opposes God’s word on the Jews, Israel and Jerusalem.
We are to repent on behalf of Israel. We are to stand in the gap for her.
The church often uses the verse about “standing in the gap” (Ezekiel 22:30) for missionary work. That’s fine, but the interpretation is profound indeed.
During the time of Israel’s rebellion, and wicked leaders, the walls of Jerusalem had been partially destroyed. So, God seeks for a man to stand in the gap (of the wall) on behalf of the whole land and people, so that He would not destroy it. He found none, therefore the “indignation” follows!
It is our job now, to stand in this gap. It is the gap through which Israel’s enemies flood in.
Job 22:29-30 “...So light will shine on your ways. He will save the humble person...He will even deliver one who is not innocent; yes he will be delivered by the purity of your hands.”
There are so many ways to bless Israel. I have heard of such encouraging things of late.
If you begin with the supposed rights of the Palestinians you are in trouble. You begin with the rights of God and His word! Many church leaders get it all wrong!
I warn many of you Christians: You are sitting on the fence. God will shake you off and down. You will fall down, down, down! You are in greater danger than you can even imagine!
Those who replace Israel with the church...when the pressure is on, you will replace Christ with the great peacemaker, the antichrist!
At the Exodus, Israel was pursued by Egypt. At the birth of the church, it was pursued by Rome / Babylon into the wilderness of the dark ages!
Israel today is at an important juncture. The second Exodus is on the go. She must beware of pursuing Egypt (type of the world) which includes pursuing Babylon (type of the world and false church) and its offshoot, Rome, a type of world religion.
Mass-media, you would not support Hitler because that’s not popular, but in your thick blindness, you can’t see that you are one spirit with Hitler!
Zechariah 8:13 “It shall come to pass that as you were a curse among the nations, Israel, so I will save you and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear.”
Psalm 33:10-12 “The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing...The counsel of the Lord stands forever...Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”
These are all huge, world-moving issues today, filled with great gravity and importance!
Cursing Israel leads to blessing the Palestinian cause and the world terror of Islam. Blessing Israel leads to their soon coming salvation and salvation then going to the world by Messiah.
You can be a fellow champion of Satan’s champions – the mass-media, or champions with and for our great God, His word and ways, and His people.
Ezekiel 20:41 “I will accept you(Jews) as a sweet aroma when I bring you out of the peoples, and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered, and I will be hallowed in you before the Gentiles.” “Hallowed” means: Pure, holy, separated.
Jeremiah 50:20 “In those days and at that time, says the Lord, ‘the iniquity of Israel shall be sought, but there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, but they shall not be found; for I will pardon those whom I preserve.”
Isaiah 27:6 “Those who come He shall cause to take root in Jacob. Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the world with fruit.”
I took these pictures in the beautiful tropical forests of Gabon.
Shalom and grow in His Grace!
