Dateline: Washington December 5, 20014—the Obama White House
While the White House is pushing Congress to not levy anymore sanctions on the terrorist nation of Iran, it seeks to impose sanctions on the only democracy and best friend of the United States, the small nation of Israel. Israel is 2 1/3 times smaller than California’s San Bernardino County, as opposed to Israel’s enemies who total the size of the whole of the United States of America. What could the Obama Administration be thinking? Who would advise the Obama Administration to do such a thing? We would be presumptuous to make any claim, but the Muslim Brotherhood does come to mind.
In the Bible we see how God uses acts of weather and nations to bring disaster to people who thumb their noses at Him. Consider when we forced Israel to give up Gaza “for peace” and the Israelis had to force their own people to not only vacate Gaza—but do the unthinkable—dig up the graves of their dead and – unceremoniously – take their exhumed corpses with them. Be forewarned America—God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7).
The day the Bush Administration leaned on Israel’s Prime Minister, Arial Sharon, to withdraw from the Gaza, turbulence began to stir in the Mid-Atlantic which became known as “Katrina!” Shortly after the removal of the Jews and their dead from Gaza, Katrina hit the city of New Orleans, breaching the city’s levy at what is known in New Orleans as “the West Bank!” Thousands of New Orleans citizens were flooded from their homes, and many sought shelter in other states. On the heels of the Jews being forced to remove their dead from Gaza, New Orleans was giving up some of its dead from the above ground crypts that dot the city. (In New Orleans they have to bury the dead above ground due to the city being below sea level.) In December—on the heels of the Gaza pullout and America’s Katrina disaster—Prime Minister Ariel Sharon—who capitulated to the Bush Administration’s demand to pull out of Gaza—was stricken with a stroke which left him in a comma until his death in January of this year.

Now the Obama Administration wants to upstage Bush by doing something that up until now was unheard of—place sanctions on Israel. FOX News reports:
The Obama administration is refusing to discuss reports that emerged early Thursday claiming that the White House is considering imposing sanctions on Israel for continuing construction on Jewish homes in Jerusalem.
State Department spokeswoman, Marie Harf, dodged several questions on Thursday (December 4, 2014) that the administration had held secret internal meetings to discuss taking action against Israel for its ongoing building in East Jerusalem.
The classified meetings were reportedly held several weeks ago and included officials from both the State Department and White House, according to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz, which first reported the meetings.
The possibility of sanctioning Israel for its ongoing construction sends a signal that the Obama administration is willing to go further in its denunciations of Israel than any previous White House.
At the same time, the White House is vigorously pushing Congress against passing new sanctions on Iran.
Friends, what we are seeing is the reason America is not mentioned as a world power in Bible end times prophecy. As America continues to travel down the Paganistic heathen slope of perversions—and atheists attacking Christians and Jews—while Muslims are celebrating their holidays in the very capital of our country—yes in our very own White House—Christmas—a legal American holiday—is under attack on a regular annual basis! Obama has reduced our Navy to a weakened state not seen since before 1917, and our overall military strength is at pre-World War Two levels!
Israel is the only country on earth that was given a title deed by God to the people He called His own (Genesis 15:17-21). While Obama comes against Israel for building homes in its capital city of Jerusalem, it would do well for us to remember what the God of the Bible promised Abraham and his descendants through Isaac: “But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you by this time next year”(Genesis 17:22, NIV). Isaac’s son, who was Abraham’s grandson, was Jacob who God called Israel, from who the nation gets its name! God promised Abraham that anyone who came against him and his children of the covenant, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse” (Genesis 12:3a, NIV). Now after Israel having been absent from the land for 2,500 years, it has re-emerged in the last days after being re-established by God on May 14, 1948:
…I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms (Ezekiel 37:21-22, NIV).
Some might argue that while it is true Israel is a nation again, they have no king as prophesied in Ezekiel 37:22; therefore, the Bible isn’t really all that accurate. Let me assure you that after a 2,000 year absence, the recently restored Sanhedrin is currently working on re-establishing the Throne of David using DNA—the Bible is amazingly accurate, but I digress. In the last days God tells us He is going to judge the nations of the world, but why—what have they done to upset God?
I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land (Joel 3:2).
Does this sound familiar? Is there a movement by the United Nations and the United States to divide Israel and especially Jerusalem? God clearly states in the Bible, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves (Zechariah 12:2-3, NIV).
We are witnessing the return to Bible days, but in our time. Be prepared because as this administration continues on its hazardous course, it will not bode well for America, but as Jesus Himself said, When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near (Luke 21: 28, NIV).
As for the Obama Administration—sanctions against Israel? Divide Jerusalem and make East Jerusalem the capital of a pseudo-nation called Palestine—really Obama? Are you sure you want to go there and have as your legacy that you were the President who reigned over the destruction of America and brought about the demise of the late, great United States?
