A Cup of Trembling

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.  And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.  In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
Zechariah 12:2-4

About three weeks from now, September 20th, a frightful prophetic event will take place.  The Arab League has endorsed a vote in the UN for recognition of a Palestinian State that encompasses the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem.  This is a step closer to the day when all of the world's armies will surround the city of Jerusalem under the direction of the Antichrist.  What a day that will be!  King of Kings Yehsua Ha'Mashyiach will return to the earth and establish His 1000 year reign.  Jerusalem is the center point of all prophecy as it is the city of the Great King Jesus!

The vote is bringing the world a step closer to the great Battle of Armageddon.  It will make nations align themselves either for or against Israel.  Those who make the fateful vote against Israel can expect immediate long range salvos from the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  Look for the number of natural disasters to increase over the next couple of months as these events and the Jewish feast days near.  Our government seems to be playing games with Israel and issuing threats about whether we are going to use our veto power in the UN Security Council.  This is playing with fire!  The God of true prophecy is a consuming fire!  Secretary of State Clinton recently required Israel to apologize to Turkey for the flotilla incident of last year.  Her demand seemed to carry a threat that we may not be able to stop the PA vote. 

The Lord is definitely trying to get people's attention.  This has been the costliest year in history for the US as far as natural disasters go.  It has also been the costliest worldwide.  There have been so many unusual and expensive disasters that listing them all has become a challenge.  From animals dying, fish floating to the surface, birds dropping from the sky, massive droughts, floods, earthquakes in unusual places, radiation poisoned water and earth from Japan, Hurricane Irene's massive flooding, and much more, God is trying to get mankind's attention.  Does he have yours?

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!  Don't be surprised if a war breaks out soon. God will not allow Jerusalem to be overran.  The Tribulation temple will need to be in place and the Antichrist's peace treaty needs to be made.  There is much prophecy about Jerusalem.  We have a ringside seat.  It is the city of King Jesus and all who rise against her WILL BE CRUSHED!  God, himself, is defending her as the city is the hub of prophecy and the place of Christ's return.  Again, pray for the peace of Jerusalem!  Pray for peace but expect war, isn't that contradictory?  Not when you know the one who brings peace--Jesus Christ.  Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is also prayer for the return of Messiah Sar Shalom--Christ the Prince of Peace!

  1. Another way of saying a cup of Trembling is a cup of Poison.
    God says he will make Jerusalem a cup of poison.

  2. Deuteronomy 32:35 To me [belongeth] vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in [due] time: for the day of their calamity [is] at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. And Deuteronomy 32:43 Rejoice, O ye nations, [with] his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, [and] to his people.

    I think it is about time to stand still and see the salvation of the Lord

  3. "Their foot shall slide in due time" was the text verse for Jonathon Edward's sermon, "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God".

  4. Thanks John!
    We are daily coming closer to the fulfillment of this scripture in Micah.

    (Micah 4:1)" But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
    2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
    3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
    4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it."

    We have to first suffer through the bad to get to this place of reward, when we will finally see Jesus in all of His glory and all will finally understand that He and only He is able to set all things right.
    They thought the anti Christ could do it and that we were the problem, but they'll see that they were wrong. Nations will finally agree with us that we were right and that Jesus is God.That Jesus is and always has been the way, the Truth and the Life, no one, I mean no one comes to the Father except by Him. One day they will all realise that and will see for themselves how Wonderful He is.
    We have SO much to look forward to. I'm So thankful for my salvation.People who reject Jesus have NO idea what they are missing!Real life only begins the day Jesus comes into our hearts, before that we were dead men walking, without hope and without God in the world.
