People Never Believe God- And Then They Get Their Butts Kicked
Israel’s Peres believes Obama will order attack on Iran if necessary- WHYYY????
The problem with human beings is that we never believe God when he tells us things. God sent Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Isaiah & countless others to the people of Israel to tell them (and tell them plainly) that he was going to smash their city, send plagues, starve them to death and send soldiers to cut them to pieces. How much more direct could he get? But rather than believe him, they either said, “Well, it’s hopeless, isn’t it? Let’s just keep partying to the very end!” or “Naw, he won’t do that to US- and certainly, not anytime soon.” And then they either killed the prophet or they tried to kill him.
Every. Single. TIME!
People! When God says he will do something, guess what? He will do it! The Israelis profess to believe in the Old Testament. When Jesus came, exactly as described in the Old Testament, they rejected him! Again, they said, “Naw, it can’t really be happening now– not in MY lifetime!” And because they made up their own version of how the Messiah would come and look and behave (ie, a great warrior king who would throw off their Roman conquerors) even though the Bible said he would be meek, mild and would be persecuted, they utterly dismissed Jesus, their long awaited Messiah when he came! And they were indeed utterly destroyed by the Babylonians & the Assyrians- and they were mocked & despised & homeless for over 2,000 years!
Just. As. God. Told them in the Old Testament!
In other words, they paraphrased God’s Word and changed it into what they wanted to believe. And they got their butts kicked.
Friends. The Old Testament clearly states that in the end times, Israel would again put their faith in another foreign leader (as they did with Egypt when the Assyrian King was about to attack) instead of in God. It is written as clear as day that this powerful leader would BETRAY them utterly. It states that Israel would have NO friend but this leader in the end times. It states that, once again, Israel would not seek God- but they would seek an earthly solution. It states clearly that they will be surrounded by their enemies. That they will be invaded. And that they will be tricked and betrayed- by the very leader in whom they put their trust.
And yet, despite this absolutely clear description of the future, when it actually occurs, the entire world says, “Naw, it can’t be really happening in my lifetime!” And off they go! To their destruction. Again.
Friends, when God says he will do something, he will do it. It’s that simple. Read his own words:
24 The Lord Almighty has sworn,
“Surely, as I have planned, so it will be,
and as I have purposed, so it will happen.
25 I will crush the Assyrian in my land;
on my mountains I will trample him down.
His yoke will be taken from my people,
and his burden removed from their shoulders.”
26 This is the plan determined for the whole world; this is the hand stretched out over all nations.27 For the Lord Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?
Don’t be misled by false prophets. Read the Bible for yourself. Be educated about world events. Take the TIME to think and to pray for wisdom. Take your own personal desires and throw them in the garbage. They don’t matter.
Because if God says, “Let it happen now,” it will happen. And WE need to deal with that reality. Let’s not repeat history. Let’s get it right this time….
