Prime Minister Netanyahu once again acknowledges the fulfillment of Bible prophecy

This popped up in my facebook feed this morning from Joel Rosenberg:

Netanyahu declares to world leaders: “In our time the Biblical prophecies are being realized.”

I think it’s fascinating that God would put a man in leadership over Israel who is well versed, and seems to be becoming more well versed in scripture. While it seems he does not know Christ- he is seeking God in the scriptures which is a good start. I would love to be a fly on the wall on the dark night of the soul for Mr. Netanyahu if God should choose to reveal the identity of the messiah to him in someplace like Isaiah 53. I guess I’d love to be a fly on a the wall in any place where someone is having their savior revealed to them for the first time – what a joyful moment that is for us that are in Christ!

Anyway, we all speculate here that soon Mr. Netanyahu will have many more scriptures to point to that illustrate how God’s promises are sure – and how is blessing on Abraham’s descendants will not be broken.

  1. I love Bibi as well, have a very soft spot for him and my prayer is that he will soon come to realize that America is NOT God!!

    Why was God wroth with Saul?

    His life is serious lesson to me in refusing to TRUST in men or to OBEY men OVER the Lord’s voice. Pretty serious result and sad consequence in a man’s life that was once king.

    And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words:—————>>>>>> because I feared the people, and obeyed———–>their voice.

    Idolatry is serious and God HATES it!

    1Sa 15:22
    And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

    1Sa 15:23
    For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

    1Sa 15:24
    And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.

    You greatly bless me with your post. This past Sunday an elder in our church, and a dear friend gave the sermon on this very passage. Still searching my own heart for the ways I have habits, a heart, and hope like Saul.

  4. It is possible for any person we know if you put it that way. We don’t know what is in the heart of a man – only God knows that for sure. The same could be said for that guy in our bible study, our pastor, our otherwise christian seeming relative, etc. We can observe the overflow of a man’s heart in what he says, and the fruit he bears – whether it be good fruit from the Lord or bad fruit from something else.

    As far as I can tell, Bibi is not a fellow believer and therefore has no access to the Holy Spirit and exists in an unregenerate state. What I am saying though is that he acknowledges scripture, and appears to trust that God will keep his promises to Israel. While that is incomplete for salvation, it is certainly a step in the right direction. It is also somewhat unique and rare among recent leaders of Israel none of which handled old testament scripture as frequently and properly as Bibi does.

    We should be praying for all our leaders that they will be wise and seek God for wisdom – we should pray or the leaders of our countries and the leader of Israel that they will know the peace the passes understanding that comes in no one but the person of Jesus Christ.

  5. perfectly decent and well put for sure as always mr. Sheep. it has been stated that bibi is a 33rd degree mason [freemason], which sometimes makes me wonder if he is acting his part really well to deceive all who watch. i’m suspicious of freemasonry,…and one could say that, it sounds like a personal problem tony. i just wonder??? / Either way, God is in control and its ultimately His plan, that will unfold. Maybe you can see my point more so now, with that said. Do you also have suspicions about leaders of nations that are connected with freemasonry?, if its even true,…..one never knows.

  6. Hi Tony
    We really do try not to promote questionable teachers/teachings over here. The SDA burden people with the law, keeping the sabbath, teaching that the mark of the beast is Sunday worshipers like us normal Christians and some other strange stuff, I also don’t suggest that SDA’s are not saved. I do know wonderful people serving Jesus with passion in that organization, but there are very much mislead people believing that by worshiping on Saturday guarantees them a place in heaven.

    We must rather get our info from more reliable sources.

    These people make men 2 fold MORE a child of hell than themselves!

  9. Like Saul was in 1 Samuel 15 we are all able to be tempted to add to or take away from the Words that God has revealed to us, or to listen to the words of men over God. The difference with Saul is that he gave himself over to it and never showed any sign of repentance from it. Let that passage be a lesson to us – there are consequences for disobedience, even partial disobedience (Saul had the kingdom taken from him for it).

    If we are concerned that we are listening to God over men and constantly examining our lives for areas of disobedience and fostering relationships where we can be appropriately encouraged as we confess our sins, repent of unrighteousness and pray for one another – that is a very good sign that we are obeying the prompting of the Holy Spirit in us. I don’t think this group is a very good place to accomplish that since we are all very far apart geographically and it is not possible or appropriate to try to share amount of our lives it takes to accomplish this. This is another reason I implore all of those who read and post here to do the hard work of finding a local fellowship of believers that are seeking to grow in their walk with the Lord through the study and application of his word to each of their lives.

If I wasn’t clear above, Tony – I pray that you would find a church even a small one that meets in back room somewhere it doesn’t matter – where the Bible is preached and it is lead by men of integrity who put obedience to scripture far an above anything else. Even from where I sit at this keyboard very far away – my fear is that you are making yourself more vulnerable to the schemes of the evil one by not being in regular fellowship with other brothers and sisters that can point you toward the truth.

    I appreciate the love and the obedience displayed in many of your comments. (Vic,so glad you haven’t hit the delete button on the blog!)

    I also believe it of utmost importance we find ourselves some (small) fellowship for accountability and ‘commubion’. The Lord has blessed me with a couple of sisters, and we mostly ‘commune’ over the phone. That suits my situation well, since I am house/bedbound a lot.
    (Am also part of a local curch, but haven’t found much of that same, precious fellowsip there – even though I love the people.I actually find more of that sweet fellowsip here!)

    I find mtself getting worse and worse, with still more debilitating fatigue, brain fog and pain. I am actually quite low right now. For myself, God can do what He wants. Let Him be glorified in all. But I feel for my husband, and family. Am I to become more and more handicapped, and less and less able to live ‘a normal life’, where even the basic day to day life is deeply affected?

  25. On topic, I also want to say, after listening through Netanyahu’s speech: It was very good – historic. He didn’t mention God once, though, as I can recall. Only about ‘the heritage of the Maccabees’ etc.
    I hope and pray, that he will come to realize just how central God was/is to the rebirth of his nation – a fact he now thanks former generations for.
    (Indirectly, though, he implies God, since he quotes prophecy as being fulfilled in our time. Yay!)

    Another thing: he reminds us that he is willing to make painful concessions, for the sake of peace. All credits for that. Any concessions at all from the other side?
    Well, yes, maybe: one hostage in return for a thousand terrorists…)

    However, it concerns me, that there may be (there is) one man lined up, who can make that elusive peace happen – and he will not be the true Messiah of the Jews. (But will most probably be mistaken for Him. At least by many.)

  26. Ingela dear sis,

    Please know that you are constantly in my heart and prayers as well and KNOW that when you are at your weakest that is when Christ is the most strongest in your life! I love that.

    Also guys I can’t seem to shake the concern I have for how we ” appease man” in our patting them on the back and giving them a false assurance that -“hey it’s okay with your soul ” when it is not. We avoid the uncomfortableness of verses like 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
    “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God” and cower down to the pressure of being ” polite and non confrontational’ Yet Christ reserved his harshest rebuke for the RELIGIOUS! I’ve had to address this issue this past week and am deeply grieved at how ” blind” a religious person really is. The religious pride oozes out like a cancerous sore 😦 not only that is AFFECTS everything it touches! Sorry for the vent!!

    I’ve met so many people in my walk with the Lord that have said the ” sinner’s prayer ” in some emotional one time display at a church altar call and have been horrified at the fruit that they bear and the lives they continue to live. The saddest of all this is how they chant verses to justify their idolatry and the false ” image ” they have created in their minds.Does not the Word of the Lord exhort us to pluck them out of the fire? HATING their garments?

    For the past month or so the Lord has been teaching me on a* specific verse and have only come to understand the fulness of what it’s saying now.This was the verse my mother quoted me the night before her death and the reason it was so powerful to me was the fact that she was a JW and DID NOT look to Christ as the One that saved her from her sins………. but she did that night 😉 She blurted out out in a joyous yell, ” Coll it is ONLY the blood of Jesus that can save me IF I AGREE with Him of how lost I really am” !!!

    Guys what does it mean to REASON WITH GOD about your sins.{ EVEN after we become born -again } Think about that for a moment.I would like to get some feed back on what you guys think and will hold back from sharing what He is showing me on that. I LOVE IT 🙂

    *Isaiah 1:16-18
    “Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
    Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

    These verses were my reading for this morning and found them to be quite fitting.

    Can you imagine that our act of worship can become a ABOMINATION to the Lord, it’s because He TRIES the hearts of men and abhors the FALSEHOOD that is hidden from others but KNOWN to Him!

    Isaiah 1:11-15
    “To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

    Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
    Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
    And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.”

    2 Corinthians 6:14-18
    “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?
    For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
    ‘I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.’
    Therefore
    ‘Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters,’ says the LORD Almighty.”

    Revelation 21:8
    “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

  27. Thank you, Colleen, for your precious, sisterly concern. This is what happens when the true body of believers (the curch that Christ Himself is building, out of all tribes, tongues and nations) functions in His love!

    It must be so special to have a hope of one day seeing your mother again, and to know she probably ‘got it’ at the very end, by the grace of God. I pray for similar last minute, ‘villain on the cross’ experiences of Grace for my own relatives – although I would love it if they ‘got it’ here and now!

    It’s amazing how the topics on this site ‘just happen to coincide’ with the discussions on our Swedish forum! Just now, we’ve touched on the difference of ‘sinning occasionally’ (and being brokenhearted about it), and of ‘sinning continually’ – making sin a lifestyle. Apparently the difference comes out clearly in original Greek, but is often obscured in translations?

    Thank you also Colleen, for bringing renewed light and understanding to ‘plucking them out of the fire, abhoring their garments’. Yes, religiosity may in fact be our enemy number one. We (religious mankind) so desperately want to do something to feel good about ourselves!
    Salvation can only come when we ‘reason with God’, or when we agree with Him, that there is absolutely no saving ourselves, in any way.

    Those garments, if we possess any, must also burn.
    We can never be clothed in anything but HIS righteousness.

    I believe I linked to a documentary on the Amish a while ago? There we have a shining example of people wanting to ‘live right’, with both ‘suspenders and belt’, so to speak. A noble goal, one should think. (It even had me longing for a simpler life, for a moment, away from ‘the world’ and all its distractions… Wouldnt it be wonderful… No, wait, I still got myself to deal with – idyll ruined!)
    What becomes the fruit of this kind of legalism?

    We have another example, closer to home, in those (often with a Word-of-Faith background?) involved in different levels of ‘the Hebrew roots movement’. It sounds good, and there may even be a deal of good in it, but what becomes the fruit, once some (Gentile background believers) start observing the Sabbath, the Jewish feasts, and certain selected food-related rules? Do we not soon see a ‘new and improved’ version of Christianity?

    Where will it end? Will the demands of (self-)righteousness ever be satisfied? How will the ‘rooters’ categorize themselves? And other believers (not observing the Sabbath, and still loving their ham sandwiches)?

    There is a reason why religiosity is so dangerous, and we may find it ‘in our own backyard’, so no need to throw stones very far here. Each ‘camp’ is in danger of setting up their own ‘rules of righteousness’.
    God, have mercy!

And didn’t Paul say he always does the wrong thing-in so many words. We all are very flawed

  40. tony i think you are way off. ever get a “lump” in your throat in an overwhelming thought? we only agree with hisown that what God gave us freely is a Great Salvation-not some cheap “grace” that men manufacture. but though Salvation is free it does cost something–the foregoing of our self-centered self-absorbed pride-that is the repenting part that cannot-should not-be ignored. pride thinks it earns the right-humility/brokenness realize the greatness of His Gift so freely given and undeserved. pride needs to bow and humility is on it’s face before such Mercy. pride does not sorrow over sin-contriteness does. that is all we are saying. perhaps tony it would be better to reread rethink and pray before just responding. don’t want to come across wrong here and this is making me think that maybe i’ve shared too much or just poorly. if so then please accept my i’m sorry. will try to be more careful.

  41. I understand Andrea, your response makes perfect sense. thank you and i will read more carefully. ps. i wouldn’t want our Father to evaluate me as lukewarm or as just a casual christian who hasn’t really got it embraced fully – this is very critical and very serious. i don’t believe in cheap grace by any means and what He has done for us by going to the cross – reduces me to tears

  42. I think André took care of that one, Tony?

    As to the ‘egg in the throat’ sensation – I knew what you were saying, André, because I’ve been there too. I can sometimes feel physically ill for the sort of reasons you describe.

    But it’s ‘funny’ you should mention it right now, because I really HAVE been feeling as if an egg (or a golf ball, or something – the classic ‘ostrich swallows large object’ picture) lodged in my throat! It’s been really uncomfortable for a couple of weeks, and it must be some kind of throat infection…

    (So, Tony, no secret code there!)

  44. Not to change the subject but don’t you guys sense { from the unction from the Holy Spirit } that something ain’t just right!!

    Vic do you recall that e-mail we discussed{ many moons ago} about ” something evil cometh our way ” ? well it feels as if this darkens is about to descend upon our globe. I wanted to say ” land” but this is not our land or our home.I’m armed and ready with the Word of God and have my ear close to His chest to hear His sweet small voice and what it is that the Spirit is saying.I pray that the Lord will lead and guide us all to heed what He is preparing us to witness.

    Pastor Brian’s update yesterday was one of the most powerful he has written and loved how he noted the difference between ” religion and relationship ” how the world is set on destroying God’s own because we place HIM FIRST in our lives. Hey by the way most of those that hate us are the ” religious ” Pastor { just in case you read here at Vic’s braaipit } 🙂

    I don’t usually get all fired up with clips like this but this is seriously ridicules and it stinks to high heaven. I smell a rat and it ain’t the rodent kind.

    I fear for the US I really do and for those that REFUSE to acknowledge that the Lord is dealing with the nation that has placed this heavy yoke on Israel’s neck. I suppose it’s the religious pride that blinds! Not much has changed through the centuries!

  51. Powerful post by bro Brian yes thank-you for posting Vic.
    Judgment begins in the house of the Lord.
    What part of ” own no man anything “don’t we get?
    China, { the largest creditor of the US } has all the right to protect their own interests right!
    I’m sorry if this offends anyone but { most } people I’ve met in America are ” debt ADDICTED ” and somehow many of them just don’t know how to live within their means.

    Let’s just call it what it is- Greed, idolatry and plain old pride!

    I abhor it, I really do and find nothing angers me more than the EXCUSES that are used to JUSTIFY a life that is focused solely on I, me and myself. Using God’s word to CONDONE this sin is deplorable!

    Vic do you recall the scripture verse the Lord confirmed in 2009. God’s Word has not returned void.I love that.

    “Woe to him who heaps up what is not his own—
    for how long?—
    and loads himself with pledges!”
    7 Will not your debtors suddenly arise,
    and those awake who will make you tremble?
    Then you will be spoil for them.
    8 Because you have plundered many nations,
    all the remnant of the peoples shall plunder you,
    for the blood of man and violence to the earth,
    to cities and all who dwell in them.

    Habakkuk 2:3 “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”

    5 Woes.

    1) Woe to those steal that which is not theirs -spoiling many nations, increasing in things that are not ours.

    2)Woe to the coveting heart-pride and greed.

    3)Woe in building a town with blood, and stablisheth a city by iniquity!- because of men’s innocent blood.

    4)Woe in giving a neighbor drink, that thou mayest look on their nakedness!

    5)Woe to those trusting in idols.

  53. Yes Tony many are enslaved. It’s a heart issue and I believe the Lord has given ” space” for repentance and was once again reminded of a verse the Holy Spirit affirmed though a pastor friend in 2008.

    Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

    But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

    I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

    When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

    Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

    WHY? Because we reap what we sow!

    For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

    They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

    Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

    Prov 1:22-31
