You know those kinds of kids...the one the teacher always looks out for. Teacher's pet maybe? What does Teacher see in them anyway? This is how many countries of the world see Israel. It seems America's leadership is leaning that direction in a serious way...like "I forgot to drink my V-8 today" kind of lean. So, what's so special about them anyway? They are such a tiny country, why should we play nice? Why does it matter so much?
Several months ago I did some highlights on Israel and what was prophesied for them and why. Catch up to speed on this part of the discussion here:
Next, the Lord said this about their land:
"Lev 25:23 ¶ The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land [is] mine; for ye [are] strangers and sojourners with me."
The Lord promised it to them. End of story.
On the news when we hear " Land for Peace" deals/ talks , we should be leaning more to, " America, get ready for a natural disaster!" Now, why would I say that? It seems every time American leaders try to take a piece of Israel's land, destruction happens here. It is never about peace truly...it is about taking Israel off the map. Take a good look:

I read a book a few years ago called "The Harbinger" by Johnathan Cahn. It is a FANTASTIC read! In the book he addresses the things that happened in America just after 9/11 and relates it to what happened to Israel when they were attacked (*cough* because they didn't repent). His allegory quotes Isaiah 9:10 which says:
"The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars"
What does that even mean? Here is a partial explanation (there are MANY layers to this) - because of the shock wave created by the collapse of the buildings, very few surrounding buildings survived undamaged. One building was left untouched (are your chills ready?) it was St. Paul's Chapel, which was protected by a sycamore. That sycamore was damaged and had to be removed. Guess what it was replaced with? A cedar. What does that have to do with the price of beans in Nova Scotia? Well, we know Isaiah loves symbols. Sycamore is a soft wood "easy to be entreated", cedar is a hard, "prideful" wood. For a short time after the 9/11 attacks, America united. Then, not long after, they became very prideful and even more wicked. Wanna know something else crazy? This little church, left undamaged, was the place where George Washington knelt to dedicate this land to God!

America and Israel are both lands of promise. Both countries must be obedient, because God will not be mocked. Their destinies are interwoven. Destruction follows disobedience. America must stand with Israel and help protect and defend her. We do not want to be on the opposing side of Israel...ever. So, be nice to Israel or Teacher's gonna get'cha.
