At next month’s 66th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, Palestinians will plead for recognition of statehood within the pre-1967 lines. Israelis await this with a fearful sense of increasing international isolation and pressure.
In late-May, Obama did something previously unheard of by a U.S. president—he embraced the 1967 borders for the nation Israel. The declaration went largely ignored by the liberal American media.
never been the official policy of the U.S. until now,” said Jordan at the time.
“That’s sort of like saying the U.S. should go back to its borders in 1958
before the Mexican American War. Give back Arizona, California and New Mexico.
Why? Because we took those territories by way of a conflict with another nation
and it’s that kind of mentality, not applied to yourself, but to someone else.
“This is a strategic shift toward a future holocaust for the nation Israel and not just Israel but the world because this is a prophetically strategic in U.S. foreign policy.
“In prophecy, in the ‘last days’ before the Lord comes to set up His kingdom, before the real Judgment Day, every nation in the earth is going to be anti-Israel.
“There’s going to come a point in world history, and the strategies of the nations, where all nations are going to look at Israel and say, ‘You’ve got no right to exist as a nation.’ ”
Little do people know that in Joel 3, a passage about God’s restoration of Israel at the Second Advent, the Lord says, in part, “Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompence me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head.”
Jordan explains, “The term Palestine was first attributed to the land of Israel by the Romans in the 2nd Century. In 70 A.D. when Titus came in, he didn’t remove the Jews from the land; he just destroyed the temple.
“In 115 A.D. there was another rebellion. Finally in 135 A.D. the Romans were so sick and tired of the Jews they came in and renamed the land after the Philistines and that’s where the name Palestine comes from. So the first inhabitants of Palestine were the Jews. They were the first Palestinians!
“The way the term is used today is a political term, started in the ’50s and ’60s to be used as a ‘political football’ because in 1947 when Israel reestablished itself as a state all the Arab nations attacked them. The Brits created Jordan as the homeland for the Arabs.
“After Israel became a nation, one of the political tactics to try to squeeze them out was to say, ‘We need a homeland for all those Arabs over there in the land you guys have.’ Well, take ’em home! Take them to Jordan and let them reconnect with their people! ‘Oh, no, no, no.’ You see, that’s all a political mess. So this West Bank stuff and the petitioning of the thing; that’s all bunk.
“I read that chapter in Joel and it isn’t just that they scattered Israel, they parted the land. All of that political stuff is just defiantly flying in the face of God Himself about what He says to do with the land.
“Zephaniah 3:8 is my favorite verse about the United Nations: ‘Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.’
“You see, globalism will never work. We have this global economy and all this stuff. All you’re doing is heading for destruction. God established nationalism. He established nations—borders, languages, cultures--in order to facilitate man’s ability to be evangelized.
“If you think you can deny that for the economic advantage, the only people gaining an economic advantage from globalism are these big money people--the statused people who run the governments and the corporations: ‘Now we can get money from all these people easy instead of going through each individual country kind-of-thing!’
“One of the geniuses of the American system of government is that all authority is local. We sit here in San Juan Capistrano. If a U.S. marshal has a warrant for your arrest he has to contact the local authorities to come and execute activity. You can’t have this federal police department coming down; the Secret Police and all that stuff you hear about. You have a system that’s the opposite of that.
“If San Juan has an arrest warrant for somebody in San Clemente they can’t just go up there and arrest them. You need a San Clemente policeman to go and arrest them and hand them over to you. Jurisdiction is jurisdiction, which hampers the Big Guy from taking over. Well, if you take that and make that global, well, if you’re trying to milk them with political power or milk them with their money, you’ll like that. It’s a whole lot harder to go through all that paperwork.
“So the globalism stuff is doomed to failure because God set humanity up to function just like people are interested in their families; you’re interested…
“I’ve been to country after country after country in the world and you know what is the first question people ask me? ‘How do you like our country?’ People naturally, instinctively, love their own country and so they should. Well, it’s natural. But if you’re just going to homogenize it all . . . When a conflict comes up, whose interest are you going to follow? Your own naturally. That’s the way it should be.
“You’re watching Europe fall apart right now. The E.U. is a great utopian idea. It can’t work because there are two countries in Europe that have always beaten the snot out of everyone else--Germany and France. And they do it because of money. If you make more money you can make more things to break. But now they’re not making money; it’s costing money. Someone’s got to pay but nobody wants to pay.
“So when the Antichrist tries to put the Last Days together—you got to remember Satan doesn’t have a kingdom that’s made of peaceful, loving, sweet people. He’s crafty enough to keep all these different creatures, who’d cut each other’s throats if they had a chance to get ahead . . . He’s crafty enough to stay ahead of it. He sits on a boiling pot with the lid jiggling. The Antichrist is going to be that master craftsman putting this thing together but it’s just not going to work.”
Psalm 83 is a cry, a prayer, of a member of the nation Israel—the believer in Israel during that time when the nations of the earth have turned on them.
explains, “There are ten nations gathered together against the nation Israel in
the Promised Land, gathered there to say Israel has no right to exist. The
believers in Israel are hidden among the rocks from the persecution, crying
out, saying, ‘They have taken crafty counsel together to destroy us.’
“Zechariah 12, written in about 500 B.C., is one of the most remarkable prophecies you’d ever want to see in the Bible. Israel’s been in Babylonian captivity but the 70 years are over and a remnant has gone back to the land.
“The city’s been destroyed, the walls are broken down, the temple’s gone, and this little remnant comes back to reestablish itself in its homeland. The Lord looks at this and says, ‘Here’s something that weighs my heart down for Israel.’
He promises verses 2-3, ‘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.’
“Here’s God, the Creator of all things, saying, ‘Behold’!
