P. M. Netanyahu and the Struggle for Israel's Promised Destiny

Reader comment on item: Netanyahu's Quiet Success
in response to reader comment: Why does Netanyahu have to fight alone?

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Oct 12, 2009 at 13:30

As another member of the prophetic evangelical Christian community who has made several attempts to provide understanding of the Holy Scriptures to those who have yet to fully embrace the teachings of Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, your series of questions provoked me to come along side and help to understand why there seems to be a lack of encouragement from the Jewish community regarding their own prophetic destiny, which can be answered by noting one important factor, the lack of belief.

It (the lack of belief) is the principle and overwhelming cause for the current disarray and lack of focus Israel is confronted with as the people of Israel face the greatest challenges since their formation in 1948. It is why P.M. Netanyahu may be likened to David facing Goliath, with the nations of the world seeking to put Israel into a compromise situation that would lead to her elimination, were it not for her Almighty Sovereign ready to execute His plan to redeem her according to His promise.

Netanyahu should not have to face his confrontation with the enemies of Israel alone, and we must remind ourselves that in the truly evangelical Christian communities, he does have friends. Yet in his own national community, he struggles with the divergent mentalities that are the causes of strife that the 'Palestinians' and their supporters count upon for the division that they hope will eventually defeat and eliminate Israel from the national scene. The scenes of Zephaniah are closing and Zechariah is prepared for culmination, as the nations are prepared for judgment.

There is a truer hope to be counted on, though; one that exceeds the highest expectations of any of mankind's meager dreams of peace, that of the hope we find in the Hebrew Holy Bible which portrays the culmination of Israel's promise in the Kingdom of her Almighty Sovereign, Yeshua HaMashiach. We are extolled by the Hebrew Holy Bible to pray for the peace of Jerusalem; but in doing so, the fulfillment of the remaining prophecies regarding Israel being prepared for the return of her King are to be accomplished, something most of those of the Orthodox Jewish belief (or even some of the more liberal 'reformed' movement) would pound any Christian evangelical for highlighting such prophecy from the Jewish Scriptures as being anti-Semitic. It must be remembered, the LORD inspired Jewish prophets to write the witness of His WORD.

Not until the removal of the Church of this age do we read that the nation of Israel has in its ranks the evangelical (the 144,000, the two witnesses and others) presence that proclaims Yeshua HaMashiach IS LORD, that we finally understand there is, finally, the faith Almighty God is searching for in the Jewish people of Israel (Zechariah 12:10 - And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for [his] only [son], and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for [his] first-born), whereby the LORD brings about His final fulfillments as told to Abraham, Moses and the prophets. Therein we shall the hope realized, in Jesus Christ as LORD, and He is installed in Jerusalem to reign forever.

So, the battle is primarily spiritual, and P.M. Netanyahu is not really alone; it just seems that way when people try to leave out Almighty God when they really need Him the most.
