What is land worth to God?
In Genesis 12:2, 3, the LORD says to Abram, "And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." This is the Abrahamic covenant that established the seed of Abraham, eventually to become the nation of Israel. And to this day, those nations that bless Israel receive blessing and those nations that curse Israel are cursed. America has been a nation that supports Israel from its very modern and prophetic establishment on May 14, 1948, but in recent years has fallen away from its traditional support.
The United States for most of its very existence has been a blessed nation. Our abundant freedom as a nation comprised mainly of Christians has led to tremendous advances in technology, food production, economic and military power and the gospel being preached around the world. In the past 10 years, however, America has found itself embroiled in many wars, the worst financial condition in history, devastated by natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornados and floods, and the Islamic war against everything American. These things began in ernest when American presidents such as George W Bush and the current occupier of the White House started talking about carving a Palestinian state out of Israel's land.
This Administration and Congress are the first to actually try to force Israel to divide its land into two pieces, allowing a so-called "Palestinian State." White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel told the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee meeting on May 5, 2009, "Israel now faces a moment of truth--it can either acquiesce to international demands and in return have its most serious threats dealt with, or maintain the status quo and have those threats persist." Emanuel was saying that the White House would ignore Iran's nuclear threat, if Israel did not buckle to demands over a Palestinian state. Since then, there has been nothing but extreme pressure placed on Israel to divide its land to terrorists.
The White House is continuing its pressure despite the recent developments where its Palestinian negotiation partner, Fatah, has untied with the terrorist group Hamas to establish a Palestinian state. So long as Americans allow their leaders to come against Israel, there will be increased financial and natural disasters cursing America. People ask what of the Islamic countries, they do not appear cursed. Try living under the bondage and poverty of Sharia law and then determine what is a curse. In Joel 3:2, the Lord says, "I will also gather all nations...and will pronounce sentence on them there for my people and my heritage Israel, whom they scattered among the nations, and divided my land." O how the deeds of men bring destruction to nations.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
