And they took the things which Micah had made, and the priest which he had, and came unto Laish, unto a people that were at quiet and secure: and they smote them with the edge of the sword, and burnt the city with fire.
In 1 Thessalonians 5 Paul clearly warned of a time near the end of days when the world would cry for peace and safety but only would receive sudden destruction. It is also clear to anyone looking that this pattern is present currently as it relates to policies towards Israel and the Covenant Land. Why Israel? God has warned that Israel is the timepiece of prophecy. He made unalterable covenant promises to Abraham, Issac, and Israel. Those promises include the coming of Messiah Yeshua to save Israel (Paul also speaks of this revival in Romans 11-13). God also made an immutable covenant promise to King David that an heir would forever sit on his throne. For there to be a throne of David, the Israelis would need to be reunited as one so that the promise can be fulfilled in its entirety. God, then, promises that the covenant people would need to be present in the covenant land so that His covenant promises could be fulfilled. All who are seeking to remove the Israelis from the land of promise are waging war against God--a war they will not win. He IMMEDIATELY calls his horrendous arsenal to bear on anyone who attempts to foil his promises. To review the tragedies and their causes, visit these prior posts:
President Obama is no exception to the rule. During his administration there have also been several of these sudden destruction incidents. It is strange that a mediator in a squabble would set preconditions for talks between the two sides that they stand between. That is for the two opposing sides to do, set conditions, debate, accept, reject, and discuss them. Yet, the President did just that. He told Israel that all talks for peace would cease as long as Israel was building in East Jerusalem in April of 2010 while serving as a mediator. This led to a standoff between the Obama Administration and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. This was also part of a major policy change by the Obama Administration. On April 19 it was announced that the US would no longer stand unequivocally with Israel in the UN. As this mess was going on the Deepwater Horizon explosion began covering the Gulf waters with oil ON APRIL 20. Not only this, Israel was celebrating its Independence as a nation, an event directly brought about by God. Truly, sudden destruction came!
A year later, the US and the other members of the Quartet were engaging in talks discussing the removing of covenant land. If you remember, in April of 2003 the US took a leading roll as the Quartet met for similar purposes. During that time the US was hit with a record 562 tornadoes. America did not notice the first tornado warning in 2003, so the second record setting event was much worse. In 2011, tornadoes would again devastate the US. 562 was a major record, but April 2011 saw the setting of a new monthly record at 753! Also, there were hundreds of deaths. God is sending a clear message--when you cry for peace and safety while rejecting His plan destruction ensues!
Again, there are many other things that could be written. However, nothing is more important than turning to Christ. There is peace and safety for those who wish to receive it God's way. It is found in Messiah Sar Shalom (Christ the Prince of Peace). Safety is found only in His everlasting arms. Will you not take the time and ask for it? Don't put it off as Jesus Christ is Soon2Come!
