Today the special relationship between Israel and the U.S. dies yet another death. In late 2007 the Bush administration became the first American presidency to make a two state solution with a divided Jerusalem official policy. Despite a full court press called the Annapolis Plan executed in 2008, all ended in abysmal failure.
Instead of attaining peace, Gaza continued a barrage of rocket fire, was invaded and is in a terrible state of affairs.
Instead of attaining acclaim, the U.S. government was overwhelmingly overturned, markets were completely decimated, and our enemies emboldened.
It seems as if the Almighty’s covenant with Abraham, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee.”, is still in cosmic operation.
Things have only gotten worse. The Obama administration is now opening up dialogue with Iran. It is the first such high level diplomacy since the Iranian revolution and hostage crisis in 1979. Today we are “resetting” our relationship with this state sponsor of terrorism in the Netherlands. A day of great consequence indeed.
At the same time, Israel is finally seating its new hard line government in Jerusalem. Today, two former commandoes, Netanyahu and Barak will formulate government policy and prepare to protect Israel at all costs. More consequences will be had.
All of these events take place in the shadow of the G20 summit in London, promoting a global world, economy, regulation czar, and trade policy. Will American sovereignty also die another death? Does this explain why we are not mentioned in prophetic passages of Scripture? What other consequences will result from this days foolishness.
The apostle Peter lived in a day of great consequence. Amidst all the clamor he reassured early saints with these words, “Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (I Peter 1:13)
