The propaganda against Israel is not confined to the world. It’s not confined to the Middle East and the people that want to wipe Israel off the map. It’s permeating the Body of Christ. The Gospel that gives us a clear picture of our history and roots in the Jewish people and land. Jerusalem has truly become as Zechariah prophesied.
“On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it.”
(Israel National News) America’s largest Protestant Christian denomination, the United Methodist Church, is again voting this week on whether to join the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions BDS movement against Israel, just a week after it divested from a security company with Israeli ties.The Church divested its $110,000 stock holdings in the British company G4S last week. The company supplies security equipment to Israel, equipment used to protect Jews in Judea and Samaria, as well as to secure Israeli prisons holding terrorists, reports the New York Times.This week, the Church will hold its general assembly in Detroit, and vote on divestiture from three companies that supply equipment to Israel: Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola. The Church’s holdings reportedly collectively equal $21 million in the companies. (More)
You know, I don’t hold to the popular opinion that the richest church in the world (the Catholic church) is mystery Babylon, but we are commanded by Jesus to come out of the world, we are commanded not to be a part of the world yet the church who claims they follow the gospel of Christ has riches untold and it’s from worldly investments. And it’s not just the Catholic church. As this article proves. Jesus said “I am about to spit you out of my mouth” when talking about the church in the last days (Revelation 3: 17)
‘Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked,”
What have they become? Just because they say they are rich and are in need of nothing and have gained a status in the world, they can exude a hatred for God’s people? And some say we have not entered the last days?
The Body of Christ wants to boycott a land that is not persecuting Christians? When all around them Christians are being slaughtered in numbers that have reached genocide? When all other lands are torturing, raping, beheading, all who are not muslim, and they want to boycott Israel? Where is the outcry for the true crimes against humanity? The Christians in foreign prisons like Iran and Sudan and North Korea simply because they are Christian. The Body of Christ wants to call out a country in favor of freedom to worship, while the whole of Africa, and the middle east are killing, ravaging and torturing anyone who is not muslim? From Iran to the coasts of Africa Christians are either slaughtered or fleeing for their faith in Christ, and this is what the Body of Christ is worried about. Incredible. What about using their vast fortunes for the starving in Nigeria, for aiding the persecuted, what have we become. And you wonder why Jesus said he is about to spit them out of His mouth.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2)
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.(2Timothy 3:5)
We have been warned not only by Jesus but by the prophets. And what really dumbfounds me is that the Body of Christ knows full well what the prophets warn about in the last days, they know what God will do and yet they follow the alternative as if they had no knowledge. Is it any wonder God say’s “My people perish for a lack of knowledge?”
“Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah.“It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it. “In that day,” declares the LORD, “I will strike every horse with bewilderment and his rider with madness. But I will watch over the house of Judah, while I strike every horse of the peoples with blindness.…
Then Zechariah goes on to tell us this, this should put no doubt in the minds of Christians about what time we are in and what happens to those who attempt to divide and conquer Jerusalem, yet they still don’t listen. It’s as if they are blind, deaf and dumb.
“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning at Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. And the land shall mourn, every family by itself: the family of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of Shimei by itself, and their wives by themselves; all the families that remain, every family by itself, and their wives by themselves.
And again, the church is silent except for what interests it’s material wealth. One last question that burns in my mind. Have you ever wondered where your tithes and offerings are going?
