Danger, Judgment Ahead!
I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed (Genesis 12:3). Then the Lord your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers. And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live. Also the Lord your God will put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you (Deuteronomy 30:5-7). Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it (Zechariah 12:2-3) I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment 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 (Joel 3:2).
Unless the prayers of the saints of God prevail, our nation is heading into the judgment God pronounced on the enemies of Israel. Our current foreign policy with respect to Israel is to work towards the creation of a Palestinian state that will exist alongside Israel and that will give the Palestinians a land to call their own.
The problem with this plan is that to do this, our government supports taking land from Israel and giving it to the Palestinians. Along with this is the idea to divide Jerusalem into two parts, one part given to the Palestinians, the other part to belong to Israel.
The land that Israel now occupies was given to her by God Almighty! When God says something, He intends to bring it to pass. If God says that those who divide Jerusalem and who hinder His plan for Israel will be judged, then they will. According to the verses above in Deuteronomy, the nations that seek to hinder God’s plan for Israel returning to the land He promised them through Abraham will inherit curses. The curses mentioned there are clearly spelled out in Deuteronomy 28: 15-68. If our government continues its current strategy in the Middle East, these scriptures will show you the days ahead for America. This is difficult to watch as it slowly comes to pass.
This is going to shock you, but I want you to see a summary of the curses listed in Deuteronomy 28:15-68. Let me remind you again; these are judgments promised also to the enemies of Israel (Deuteronomy 30:7).
Here is a summary of the judgments listed in these verses in Deuteronomy 28: children cursed (v. 18); low birth rate (vv. 62-63)crops ruined and animals killed (vv. 18, 22, 31-32, 38-40, 42, 51) confusion of mind, madness, and fear (vv. 20, 28-29, 34, 65-69) sickness (vv. 21-22, 27-28, 35, 59-61) drought, hunger, and thirst (vv. 22-24, 48) defeat in war (vv. 25, 49-50, 52) wives ravished (v. 30) oppression and slavery (vv. 29, 33, 48, 68) cannibalism (vv. 53-57) captivity (vv. 36, 63-64) corpses not buried (v. 26) plans shattered (v. 30) poverty, debt, and nakedness (vv. 44, 48) robbery (vv. 29, 31, 33) children kidnapped (vv. 32, 41) aliens take over the land (v. 43) shame and scorn (v. 37). 1
If you love your country, you should be earnestly seeking God in prayer for our president and our government. Unless we change courses, certain judgment is ahead for America. Obey 1 Timothy 2:1-2 and pray for our national leaders every single day, that the Lord will open their eyes to what He said about Israel and those who oppose His plans for them and the land He promised them through Abraham. What affects our nation will affect you and your children in the future.
