Marching Toward Your Choice Destination
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the previous US “president’s” nuclear deal with Iran would enable the terrorist-sponsoring nation to finish building nuclear weapons. Last week, he continued to urge the current US President to scrap the deal by showing proof that Iran was continuing to develop its nuclear weapons program. President Donald Trump is now expected to pull out, while the so-called experts are playing their usual foreign policy scare card warning that breaking the Iran deal could cause a war. Let’s remember that this terrible deal unleashed some $100 billion in sanction money to the terrorist state that arrived in cash on pallets AND will allow Iran to develop nukes in 10 years.
In 2015, the previous US “president” effectively cleared the way for billions of dollars to be pumped into Iran in reward for agreeing to delay its nuclear program for at least ten years. Also, The Times of Israel reported US officials confirmed that Iran was not forbidden to test ballistic missiles under the nuclear deal. Many analysts believed at the time that Iran would use the time and money to accelerate nuclear development. It was widely reported that Iran tested ballistic missiles in March 2016, including two with the words “Israel must be wiped off the earth” emblazoned on them. The missile tests were evidence that the White House narrative was deathly wrong.
The Lord says in Zechariah 12:3, “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.” At the time, many found it hard to imagine how, for example, the United States would be gathered prophetically against Israel. The US had supported Israel since it became a nation. The previous “president” reversed this backing across the board by supporting the traditional enemies of God through the Arab Spring rebellions, the Iran nuclear deal, and much more. Left intact, his foreign policy may have had catastrophic consequences for America and its citizens.
This is why leadership is so important. The current White House is bringing America back into alignment with Israel. By ending the Iran nuclear deal, Trump may reverse the disastrous prophetic implications of his predecessor. It is important that America do the right thing in the eyes of God. Jesus says in Matthew 25 that when the Son of Man comes in his glory, he will separate the nations like a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats-the goats on the left and sheep on the right. Verse 34 says, “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you form the foundation of the world.” While our personal salvation is most important, so also are the leaders we choose.
