In most American Christian circles today, it is near heresy to say anything critical of the nation of Israel.  But it is important that our desire to do right, and to please God, be guided by wisdom and understanding.

Whether or not they offend you, I ask that you prayerfully read and consider the words of Pastor Rick Wiles.  The following is an excerpt from a broadcast on 6/10/11.

“I know this will come as a shock to Pastor John Hagee and all the Christian Zionists, but thousands of sodomites marched in the streets of Tel Aviv, Israel today.  You know, American Christians donate millions of dollars every year to Pastor Hagee so he can give it to Israel.  And  he doesn’t give it to Christians in the Middle East, whose families have been there for two thousand years, and he doesn’t give it to the Jews who believe in the name of Jesus Christ that they may evangelize their fellow Jews.  No, Pastor Hagee gives it to the Israelis who despise Jesus Christ.  It doesn’t make sense does it?

And while millions of American Christians worship the state of Israel like a golden idol, the Israelis themselves are promoting homosexuality–and I thought they are God’s chosen people.  No wonder the Bible calls Jerusalem ‘Sodom and Egypt’ in the last days.

So when will the American church discard this unbiblical theology and realize that if we do not preach the gospel of the kingdom of God to the Jews in Israel, they will burn in the Lake of Fire? So, if you say you love them, why don’t you tell them about Jesus?

Well anyway, thousands of homosexuals and lesbians, including drag queens, marched through the streets of Tel Aviv, Israel today, marking the conclusion of Israel’s ‘Gay Pride Week’.  The sodomy celebration started in Golda Meir Park, named after  the former Prime Minister.  Numerous Israeli politicians spoke to the Jewish homosexuals including Tel Aviv’s mayor, and various members of the City Council.

Tzipi Livni, former cabinet minister, said that all of Israel’s leaders and political parties were obligated to the struggle for equality for homosexuals.  She said “I have come to say that being part of the gay community, to be gay or lesbian or any other member of the community, is not a political choice, as is the choice to protect the gay community and its right for social equality.”  Livni added that “we are here to fight together against any phenomenon of hate, to fight for Israel’s values.”

So, Israel’s values is homosexuality, according to this high-ranking government official.  Member of the Knesset, Nitzan Horowitz, slammed the protest against the gay pride parade saying ” those who speak of an abomination, the abomination is their and he who speaks about illness, he is the sick one”.

So, this Jewish member of the Knesset said anybody who quotes the Bible, and says that homosexuality is an abomination–that person is the abomination.  And if you say it’s a sickness, you’re the one who is sick.

Now somebody should tell the people in Israel that Iran is getting ready to attack them, and they may want to repent of their homosexuality and idolatry before the bombs start flying and the tanks start rolling.

The Israeli Defense Force openly permits homosexuals to serve in the military, and there are thousands of gays in the Israeli army, including many senior Israeli officers.  But can you imagine King David going to war with homosexuals in his army?

Instead of blindly supporting Israel, the church of Jesus Christ should be crying out for the Jews to repent, to turn from their wicked sins, because there is no hope for them, except salvation through Jesus Christ.

And there is a big lie that is told every day on Christian TV and radio programs, and every week in thousands of churches.  It says that America’s security and prosperity depend upon the USA standing with Israel, and that is a lie.  Our security and prosperity depend upon the USA obeying the commandments of God!

Our right standing with God is not based upon us militarily backing a country that celebrates homosexuality and perversion, and denounces Christianity, and bans the conversion of Jews in the country.  The Israelis are spiritually lost, and they are no different today than the Israelites who were dancing around the golden calf when Moses came down from the mountain with the ten commandments written in stone.  So why would God expect us to uphold their rebellion?

America is under judgment right now, and it isn’t because we have turned our back on Israel in the Middle East.  We have turned our back on God, that’s the problem!  God doesn’t give permission to any nation to rebel against His commandments, and Jesus Christ is coming, in power and glory, to judge all the nations, and that includes the USA and Israel.  You will not be saved because you waved a Star of David flag from your front porch, or hung one on your church podium.  You will be saved because the blood of Jesus Christ marks your soul.

And I hear preachers on TV and radio all the time, extolling Israel like it’s an idol.  But the Bible says God retains the prerogative to bless or curse any nation, based on their obedience to Him, and modern day Israel is not obedient, and neither is the USA–and the only thing keeping the USA from collapsing is that there is still a sizable number of blood washed, born again, Spirit filled Christians in this land, who love the Lord with all their hearts, and are grieved over the sins of this nation.

Now, Jeremiah 18 says

“the word, which came to Jeremiah, from the Lord saying ‘Arise and go down to the potter’s house.  I will cause you to hear my words.’  Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was making something at the wheel.  And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hands of the potter, so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.  Then the word of the Lord came to me saying ‘Oh house of Israel’ . . .”

No, He didn’t say ‘Oh house of Iran, oh house of Persia, oh house of the Palestinians, He said ‘Oh house of Israel’ . . .

“‘can I not do with you as this potter?’ says the Lord.  ‘Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, oh house of Israel.  The instant I speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck it up, to pull down and destroy it, if that nation, against whom I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it.

And the instant I speak, concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it, if it does evil in my sight, so that it does not obey my voice, then I will relent concerning the good which I said I would benefit it.  Now therefore, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem’ . . .”

He didn’t say ‘Moscow’, He didn’t say ‘Beijing’.  He is speaking to the people in Jerusalem.  He is literally speaking to the whole world saying

“‘thus says the Lord, behold I am fashioning a disaster and devising a plan against you.  Return now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.'”

Now what did they say?  The Bible says in Jeremiah 18 they said

“that is hopeless, so we will walk according to our own plans and we will, every one, obey the dictates of his evil heart.

Therefore, thus says the Lord ‘And now, among the Gentiles, who has heard such things?  The virgin of Israel has done a very horrible thing.  Will a man leave the snow water of Lebanon, which comes from the rock of the field, will the cold water be forsaken for strange water?  Because my people have forgotten me, and they have burned incense to worthless to idols, and they have caused themselves to stumble from the ancient paths, to walk in the paths and not on the highway, to make their land desolate and a perpetual hissing.  Everyone who passes by it will be astonished and shake his head.  I will scatter them, as with an east wind, before the enemy.  I will show them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity'”.

My friend, if you want to pray for Israel, pray for the true Israel–the Jews, and the Caucasians, and the Africans, and the Asians, and the Latinos, and all the races of men and women on the Earth who believe on the holy name of Jesus Christ, the son of the God of Israel.  Righteousness exalts a nation, sin is a reproach to any people.”

Pastor Rick Wiles  (from TruNews broadcast, 6-10-11)

If a nation–any nation–is doing things that displease God, do you really think that He will curse us if we do not continue to support their agenda?  By no means!  What He expects us to do, if we wish to be a blessing to them, is to pray for them and call them back to Him!!
