The United States government has placed pressure on Israel to give up land for peace for many years. However, the land of Israel was promised to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants. This pressure has resulted in judgment on the U.S. from the same God that promised Israel to the Jews.
Now, more than ever, I am convinced our treatment of Israel is directly related to recent natural disasters America has suffered through. The siren has been sounded, warning America to stand by Israel or suffer the wrath that will surely come.
The Northeast United States was hammered with a super storm known as Sandy Oct. 30. This “Perfect Storm” is being reported as one of the most disastrous storms to ever hit the U.S.
Some Americans may be experiencing deja vu. Exactly 21 years ago, the Northeast U.S. was preparing for the first “Perfect Storm.”
But what has the U.S. done against Israel this time to make God release his wrath and send down a warning?
Oct. 30, 1991: President George H.W. Bush opened up the historic Mid East Peace Conference in Madrid to encourage Arabs and Israelis to “lay down the past.”
On that same day, “The Perfect Storm” hit the U.S. The waves from the first “Perfect Storm” were the largest ocean waves ever recorded and almost wiped out Present George H. W. Bush’s home in Kenebunkport, Maine.
Oct. 30, 2012: Hurricane Sandy, the second “Perfect Storm” hit New York City and the Northeast U.S. Sandy caused widespread damage estimated to be in the billions of dollars.
The Palestinians made an official move to make steps to declare itself a state to the United Nations, and the application was to be presented Oct. 30. The U.N., however, was unable to open its doors to vote on the request because of Hurricane Sandy.
This is not the only creepy coincidence of the U.S. being struck by a devastating storm at the very moment we started pulling away our support for Israel.
Aug. 23, 1992: The Madrid Conference moved to Washington D.C., and peace talks resumed. So did God’s warnings! Hurricane Andrew came ashore and left more than 180,000 Floridians homeless. Hurricane Andrew is second only to Hurricane Katrina in financial damage.
Jan. 16, 1994: President Bill Clinton met with Syria’s President Hafez el-Assad in Geneva about a peace agreement with Israel that included Israel giving up the Golan Heights. Within 24 hours, a powerful 6.9 earthquake rocked Southern California. The earthquake was the third most destructive natural disaster to hit the United States, behind Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Andrew.
Sept. 28, 1998: President Clinton met with Yasser Arafat and Prime Minister Netanyahu at the White House to finalize the land deal that had Israel give up 13 percent of Yesha (Judah and Samaria). On this same day, Hurricane George slammed into the U.S. Gulf Coast and stalled with 110 mph winds and gusts up to 175 mph. Later, Arafat addressed the U.N. about declaring an independent Palestinian state by May 1999. At the exact time Arafat departed the U.S., the storm began to dissipate.
Oct. 15-22, 1998: Arafat and Netanyahu met again in the U.S. to continue talks that focused on Israel giving up 13 percent of Yesha. Torrential rains and massive tornadoes hit southern Texas Oct. 17. The floods ravaged 25 percent of Texas, and 31 people died. President Clinton declared it a major disaster area.
May 3, 1999: Arafat was scheduled to declare a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital. However, the declaration was postponed to December 1999 at the request of President Clinton because the most powerful tornado storm system ever to hit the U.S. swept across Oklahoma and Kansas that day. President Clinton’s letter to Arafat sent words of encouragement in “aspirations for his own land.”
Aug. 15, 2005: The Jewish communities in the Gaza Strip were forced out of their homes on this day in response to pressure by the U.S. on Prime Minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon, to force the Israeli military to remove Jews from Gush Katif, Gaza for a future Palestinian State. The State Department said they were to be removed by Aug. 15, 2005, without excuse.
Even the bodies of the dead Jewish people were dug up and removed, against Jewish Law, and reburied outside of Gush Katif. Pressure from the U.S. resulted in the violation of this very sacred Biblical Law.
The evacuation also left the Jewish people’s assets exposed to looting in their abandoned homes.
Aug. 28, 2005: Gush Katif was declared “Judenrein”- Jew Free on this day. More than 10,000 evicted residents found themselves without homes or jobs and without money.
The very next day New Orleans was struck with the worst natural disaster in U.S. history: Hurricane Katrina.
The city was declared “uninhabitable,” leaving up to 500,000 people homeless. Looting was rife in the devastated areas and uncontrollable by police.
Dead bodies and coffins from the historic graveyards were seen floating in the streets of New Orleans and washed up all over the city.
I believe what God has commanded of us in scripture, “Those who bless Israel will be blessed, and those who curse Israel will be cursed!”
The United States was blessed immensely after WWII when we became the first country to recognize Israel as a modern nation. Unfortunately, I feel those blessings may soon come to a screeching halt if we continue to ignore the warnings from God not to turn our backs on Israel.
America must wake up and hear the alarm. If you want God to bless America, America must bless Israel!
