We did it. The unthinkable. Our nation joined other world powers in committing a “historic mistake,” as labeled by Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Along with the others, the United States bought into Iran’s sales pitch that they will stop enriching uranium with the goal of building nuclear bombs.
Is a nation that routinely chants, ‘Death to America’ and calls for the annihilation of Israel a trustworthy partner for peace, though? By participating in the deal, what we really did was position ourselves as a nation. With those on the wrong side of history.
Anyone who follows end-time prophecies knows that these events fit precisely with Ezekiel. Even though the timing remains a mystery, known only to God, the fulfillment is sure.
Surely it is coming, and it shall be done,” says the Lord GOD. “This is the day of which I have spoken.”
God still loves America, but we are kidding ourselves to think that He is blind to our actions. As if the aborting of millions of innocent lives were not enough, now we have hammered yet another blow against His hand of protection over our nation. By siding with a rogue nation, in a way that threatens the well-being of Israel, we have thrust ourselves on the wrong side of God’s standard for nations.
God will prove faithful to Israel in that they will never be destroyed. He has their backside. However, He will also hold accountable those who knowingly participate in measures which jeopardize them. Spin aside, this deal with Iran has done just that. And it may inevitably prove lethal for countless American lives.
Let us fervently pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Although America is now on the wrong side of history in this matter, believers can still individually stand beside Israel in prayer, much more so as the time of Christ’s return draws near. He will reward those who do so.
“Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.”
