Can't you just picture those Arab/ Islamic nations seething with hate and jealousy after hearing about Israel's big oil and natural gas find?? Ha! Well... that changes the dynamics of EVERYTHING! Do you think that Israel is going to give up their God given 'Promised Land' for "peace" now? I just got done reading that great biblically documented book: AS AMERICA HAS DONE TO ISRAEL, by John P. McTernan, and have changed/ tweaked my mind a bit about America. There just MAY be a slight glimmer of hope for us as 2 huge wars are about to commence... but it depends on the 'Church' -- that means the world congregation of true Believers and followers of Jesus Christ-- not some brick structure, or denomination. They have lost their tongues and back bones up to now [but started out well in our country's beginning - 1775], and I really do NOT expect a huge revival... sorry, that's my humble opinion based on history and human nature. We are too steeped in love of self, fleshly desires, materialism, emerging church, ecumenicalism, false doctrines, preterism, dominion theology,, replacement theology, New Age, etc.
Real Christians in China who are beat, tortured and murdered there for spreading the true Gospel, are thriving and making disciples-- but America is going down the other road. Europe is already dead. Our poorest poor in the USA have much more than so of the upper class in 3rd world countries-- yet our poor do nothing but bitch and complain that they might have to work... lol, with 5th generation Welfare families!! Get the picture yet? I will take you to the North side of Milwaukee to prove it, if you like. Opps, that's not politically correct... sorry, but it's the truth.
I highly recommend the book I just finished, and it has helped shaped my mind as to what the primary priority ought to be for me, Old Soldier Tom. And as I said before, the Church in the USA is being infiltrated by many false prophets, teachers, well known religious leaders that mislead many! If it were not so, we MIGHT be able to BLESS ISRAEL, so that we bless ourselves [thru God's favor and kindness -- Gen. 12:3]. Like everything else, WE could put enough pressure on Congress and the WH to show honor, favor and protection to ISRAEL, especially now in her time of need, surrounded by unspeakable dangers and violence, from the enemies of the God of the Bible! But then, the Bible MUST be true to it's own prophecies, so one way or another, the 'die is cast.' And 'God cannot lie' --Titus 1:2.
The trouble is, IMO, that most 'Christians' are too lazy to learn their own Bible [if they have one], and the leaders of churches are too afraid of telling the truth or pointing out what sin or salvation is to their flocks-- and too many pastors are into riches rather than being good stewards of money and wealth. Sorry folks, I just don't think it's going to happen here in America. Prove me wrong, please.
