Israel’s Future: Holding On By A Blue Thread

While the world is watching to see what will become of the Jewish Democratic State there is much raucus and press concerning the current status of the election.  The uncertainty of the political future of Israel is causing great unrest and turmoil.  While in the last election there was little doubt that the Likud party with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was a given this second election is proving to expose a sincere divide in what citizens of Israel want the future to look like.   Should the longest standing Prime Minister lose his position in office what will happen to Israel?  Is it time for the next move of God in the land to take shape?  Will it still remain a Jewish Democratic state or become like the Western democratic world?

Like its political ally there is certainly a shaking taking place as we push for this upcoming 2020 year.  However, with Israel in a state of political limbo and it’s major Ally preparing for its entrance into the dance, Israel both in and outside of the land needs more than ever to press into the Most High for direction.  There are no clear answers as to how this thing will play out, but the Word of God has already foretold us of this time we are approaching and make no mistake what has been written will come to pass whether we believe it or not.  Now it is just a matter of when, and could these elections be a greater picture of the Spiritual shift of the people?  Are we being given a long rope in which to hang ourselves on?  Time will tell, but one thing is certain the political and religious world is emerging on the world hotseat and is now being analyzed for its shortcomings.  The religious unright who stand on the right side of the Sabbath is being called on the carpet because of the wrong views they hold on issues as it relates to their treatment of their fellow brothers, and sisters who don’t share their background, and attempts to get them to take part in the IDF keeps them from joining with their former allies.  One thing is for sure change is coming ready or not.

It is unconscionable to believe that a people who have suffered from being abused because of their heritage could be guilty of holding the same such views against others but make no mistake it is possible.  As the remnants of hatred brews it is not only possible but plausible that we as a people who have and continue to suffer from unjust laws, and modern slavery in America as so called “African Americans” are capable of harboring and holding the same views and carrying out the same acts of bigotry if given a chance.  It’s because the issue isn’t a white thing or a black thing, a right or a left wing, nor a orthodox, liberal, or zionist thing its a sin thing and only one is exempt from it, and his name is Yeshua.  The one who became all things to all men that he might by all means save some, and has empowered by the Holy Spirit His followers to be able to do the same. (1 Cor. 9:22b)

Make no mistake whoever gets in office regardless of their agenda they are a part of the Master plan to bring to the surface the hearts of the people.  This is what the test does, as sure as it did when Abraham in obedience chose to follow the instructions of the Most High, offered his son, his only begotten son on the altar of wood, YHVH knew then that Abraham could be trusted in the earth, and his obedience produced favor.  What we vote for and where we stand likewise is a test of who we trust.  Are we choosing YHVH to be king or do we seek another?  Are we making our choice based on voting according to our obedience in Messiah Yeshua or our own personal interests?  Bottom line is who are we trusting, seeking, and looking to for our deliverance. Because ultimately what this political hot potato is really revealing is that we cannot trust in the stability or the ability of mankind to bring about a perfect system that will benefit the whole.  We cannot look to ourselves as the answer to our problems, and any past successes that we have in the wake of this turmoil only reveals all the more that the favor of God and the will of God is what has brought us thus far.

So finally, as I watch and pray concerning both the choices I have to make for our upcoming elections here at home, and keep my eyes on that which is the apple of His eye, the land of Israel I am watching as that one thread that holds both of us where we need to be is both shedding the weak fibers that keep it strong, yet miraculously it is growing and positioning new threads to take its place.  So, does this mean the end of the long lasting Likud party or Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s tenure?  Will our own country foresee another four years of pursuing the “Making America Great Again” plan under President Trump?  Only time will tell, but what I do know is whatever the political shift and shuffle looks like it won’t change the fact that the Sun will come out tomorrow, and set the same way and the one who makes it so never sleeps, nor slumber, and His plan for us has never changed.  In this I can watch, pray, and sleep sweet and if you know your God I encourage you to do the same. Love you all, standing with the God of Israel, and the Israel of God!
