Zechariah 12:1-3 (KJV)
1The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
2Behold, 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.
3And 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.
Yesterday, March 3, 2014, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with U>S. President Barack Obama. President Obama and his Administration are publically and privately pressuring PM Netanyahu to agree to give up more of the Holy Land which God Almighty Deeded to Israel 4,000 years ago beginning with His Promise to Abraham. President Obama’s pressure includes giving up Eastern Jerusalem to the Muslims for their Capital.
Ever since God Deeded over the Holy Land of Israel to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel, Jerusalem has always and only been the Capital City of Israel and no other Nation or people! F
Last year at the United Nations, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a story that perfectly illustrates the vital importance of why Jerusalem and all the Land of Israel must remain under the possession and control of the Jewish people and government as God has decreed (presently Israel occupies only a small portion of the Land God Deeded to them, they need to obey God and possess ALL the Holy Land which includes all of what is presently under the control of the Palestinians):
“Ladies and gentlemen, one cold day in the late 19th century, my grandfather Nathan and his younger brother Judah were standing in a railway station in the heart of Europe. They were seen by a group of anti-Semitic hoodlums who ran towards them waving clubs, screaming ‘Death to the Jews.’
“My grandfather shouted to his younger brother to flee and save himself, and he then stood alone against the raging mob to slow it down. They beat him senseless; they left him for dead; and before he passed out, covered in his own blood, he said to himself, ‘What a disgrace, what a disgrace. The descendants of the Maccabees lie in the mud, powerless to defend themselves.’
“He promised himself, then, that if he lived, he would take his family to the Jewish homeland and help build a future for the Jewish people. I stand here today as Israel’s prime minister because my grandfather kept that promise.”
I urge you to pray for PM Netanyahu, that God will give him a spirit to withstand the U.S. pressure (and U.N. pressure) to give up to their enemy what God has given to them! May Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu say “No” to this fallacious U.S. “Peace Plan” and trust in Almighty God to protect, defend and prosper the people and Nation of Israel!
Psalms 121:4 (NKJV)
4Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
