What’s Happening in Israel?
17 August 2006

“Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I
shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be
a light unto me. I will bear the indignation of the
LORD, because I have sinned against Him, until He
plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: He will
bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his
Micah 7: 8-9

	People have been dismayed by recent events. I do not
speak of those in the world, but of godly people; who
love the Lord, love the brethren, and love His Chosen
People Israel. These are the people whose resilience
has been shaken by a little over thirty days of
events, where the might of Israel roared, yet her
enemies declared victory. They have seen and
understood Biblical prophecy concerning the helpless
Jew, who after being persecuted and murdered for over
two thousand years, suddenly being turned into a
fighting force before whom enemies flee. What they do
not realize is how Israel, after replying to enemy
attack, devastating his strongholds, could have
victory turned into defeat? Her enemies rejoice and
dance in the streets, so excited over their proclaimed
victory, they have forgotten to mourn their dead.
	In 1948, 1956, 1967, 1973 and1982 the Israelis faced
Arab armies and defeated them, rendering them
incapable of continued resistance. That was not the
outcome in the events of this past month and inquiring
minds should want to know why God might allow this to
happen? Could it be because the stage is being set for
God to do something wonderful, a thing that will bring
about the circumstance that will fulfill key End Time
prophecy? A careful reading of prophetic text leads me
to believe that in the day that God acts Israel will
be seen as helpless before her enemies.
	It is not without cause that events might be
occurring at this time to bring these events about.
For one thing, the leaders of Israel have been willing
to give land for “peace” ignoring the fact land is a
heritage given from the Lord. A careful look at recent
events reveal the situation began to rapidly
deteriorate for Israel when they signed on to a deal
called The Roadmap for Peace. <”><
