The Watchman On The Wall

The Watchman On The Wall
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Anti-Israel Statements and Policies Linked To Disasters Part 1

10. September 28, 1998: Hurricane George As Secretary of State Albright works on the final details of an agreement in which Israel would give up 13% of Yesha (Judah and Samaria), Hurricane George slams into the United States Gulf Coast focusing on Alabama. There were 110 mph winds and gusts up to 175 mph. The hurricane hits the coast and stalled. On September 28, Clinton meets with Yasser Arafat and Netanyahu at the White House to finalize this land deal. Later, Arafat addresses the United Nations about declaring an independent Palestinian state by May 1999, as Hurricane George pounds the Gulf Coast, causing $1 billion in damage. At the exact time that Arafat departs the country, the storm begins to dissipate.

11. October 15-22, 1998: Texas Flooded On October 15, 1998, Arafat and Netanyahu meet at the Wye River Plantation in Maryland. The talks are scheduled to last five days with the focus on Israel giving up 13 percent of Yesha. The talks are extended and conclude on October 23. On October 17, awesome rains and tornadoes hit southern Texas. The San Antonio area is deluged with rain. The rain and flooding in Texas continue until October 22 and then subside. The floods ravage 25 percent of Texas and leave over one billion dollars in damage. On October 21, Clinton 
declares this section of Texas a major disaster area.

12. On November 30, 1998 stock Market Capitalization Evaporated as Arafat came to Washington to meet with President Clinton to raise money for a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. A total of 42 other nations were represented in Washington. All the nations agreed to give Arafat $3 billion in aid. Clinton promised $400 million, and the European nations $1.7 billion. On the same day, the Dow Jones average drops 216 points, and on December 1, the European Market had its third worst day in history. Hundreds of billions of dollars in market capitalization were wiped out in the U.S. and Europe. Was this just a coincidence?

13. On December 12, 1998 Clinton goes to the Palestinian controlled section of Israel to negotiate the "land for peace" deal. Meanwhile the House of Representatives voted four articles of impeachment against Clinton.

14. March 23, 1999: Arafat meets with Clinton in Washington, DC. Market falls 219 points that day. The next day Clinton orders attack on Serbia.
15. May 3, 1999: The Powerful Super Tornado On the day that Yasser Arafat is scheduled to declare a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital, the most powerful tornado storm system ever to hit the United States sweeps across Oklahoma and Kansas. The winds are clocked at 316 mph the fastest wind speed ever recorded. The declaration is postponed to December 1999 at the request of President Clinton, whose letter to Arafat encourages him in his "aspirations for his own land." He also writes that the Palestinians have a right to "determine their own future on their own land" and that they deserve to "live free, today, tomorrow and forever."

16. September 3, 1999: Secretary of State Albright meets with Arafat in Israel. Hurricane Dennis comes a shore on this very day after weeks of changing course in the Atlantic Ocean.

17. September 22, 1999: Arafat meets with Clinton in Washington, DC. The day before and after the meeting the market falls more than 200 points each day. This was the first time in history the market lost more than 200 points for two days in a week. The market lost 524 points this week.
18. Another terrible financial event occurred the week of October 11, 1999. In Israel, Jewish settlers were being driven from 15 West Bank settlements in order to satisfy world appeasement to the Arabs. On October 15, 1999 the U.S. Dow-Jones average plummeted 266 points or 5.7%. It was the worst drop since Oct 1989. On October 16, 1999 a magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck in the California desert, the 5th most powerful earthquake in the 20th century. While on the U.S. East Coast, Hurricane Irene produced torrential rains of 10-20 inches from Florida to North Carolina and wreaked havoc all along the Atlantic seaboard. Irene caused over $800 million in damages. A coincidence? What do you think?

19. June 16, 2000: Arafat meets with President Clinton. The market falls 265 points on this day.

20. July 12-26, 2000: Arafat at the Camp David meetings. Powerful droughts throughout the country. Forest fires explode in West into uncontrolled fires. By the end of August, 7 million acres are burnt.

21. November 9, 2000: Arafat meets with President Clinton at the White House to try and salvage the peace process. This was just two days after the presidential election. The nation was at the height of an election crisis. The worst in over 100 years. 

Shown above tropical storm Allison
22. In June of 2001 President Bush sent George Tenet his CIA director to Israel in an attempt to implement the Mitchell Plan. The Mitchell plan called the cessation of building in various Jewish settlements.  The cessation of building was part of negotiating Jewish land for a peace treaty with the Palestinians.
On the very same day that George Tenet met with Israeli and Palestinian officials, a tropical storm named Allison formed in the Gulf of Mexico and moved swiftly over Texas, Bush’s home state. Allison dropped over 28 inches of rain over the Houston area and caused over $4 billion dollars in damage. Allison caused massive flooding in Jefferson County Texas. 
The storm then moved across to Florida and up the east coast of the United States of America causing more damage. Meteorologists reported Allison as the "worst tropical storm in history".
Was this God’s judgment or just a mere coincidence?
Notice what God says in Joel 3:1-2, "...I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of my people and my inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided, up my land." This was clearly God’s judgment.

23. September 11, 2001: Largest Terrorism Event in History The World Trade Center and Pentagon terror attacks produced the most expensive insurance event in U.S. history ($30 to $50 billion estimate). At the same time the Bush administration, in cooperation with the Saudis, was completing the most comprehensive plan and message ever to be offered on Israel's covenant land by an American President, and to be presented by Secretary of State Powell to the United Nations General Assembly. Saudi Arabia’s Prince Bandar bin Sultan stated he went from being "the happiest man in the world" on Monday night, September 10, to experiencing the worst crisis of his career on 9/11. 
Dreams of a new Middle East peace initiative evaporated. The realization that most of the hijackers were Saudis "fell on me ... like the whole house collapsed over my head," Bandar said later. He couldn't imagine a way to "do more damage or worse damage to Islam or to Saudi Arabia."

The Texas City explosion is shown above.
24. In the beginning of 2005, President Bush began pressuring Sharon to evacuate Jewish settlers from their land in Gaza and parts of the Northern West bank in a push to complete a peace deal between Israel and Palestine.
On March 23, 2005, a fire and explosion occurred in the Presidents home state at BP's Texas City Refinery in Texas City, Texas, killing 15 workers and injuring more than 170 others.

25. In August 2005 48 hours President George W Bush and Condoleeza Rice pressured Ariel Sharon into forcing Jewish settlers under the "Disengagement" plan to leave Gaza in August 2005. Between, August 16th - August 30th, 2005, Ariel Sharon expelled 9,480 Jewish settlers from 21 settlements in Gaza and four settlements in the northern West Bank. 

Hurricane Katrina is shown above

On 29 August Hurricane Katrina moved across the Gulf of Mexico and ravaged New Orleans. Some of the areas were so devastated that they still have not fully recovered today. Katrina caused at least 200 billion dollars in damage.  Photo: Hurricane Katrina was a category 5 hurricane.   

By the way, Louisiana was Condoleeza Rice's home state. Thousands were killed and thousands were made homeless. Hurricane Katrina spoiled the "Southern Decadence" weekend planned by the homosexual community in New Orleans and supported by the mayor of New Orleans. By September 7th the mayor of New Orleans ordered all people to evacuate the city. The police chief expressed reservations about evicting defiant householders because it would create a PR disaster. 
Please read Matthew Chapter 24. Jesus said in Matthew 24, "see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet."

26. On December 18, 2005 Sharon was sent to Hadassah Medical Center after suffering a mild stroke.  The stoke was reported as an unusual type of stroke called a paradoxical embolism, in which a clot from the venous circulation crosses over into the arterial circulation through a hole between the right and left atrium called an aeral sepal defect (or a patent foramen ovale) and goes to the brain, causing a transient speech and motor disturbance. 
On his way to the hospital he lost consciousness but regained it shortly thereafter. He spent two days in the hospital and was to have the small hole in his heart repaired by a cardiac catheterization procedure in early January.

On January 4, 2006, in the evening before his catheterization, Sharon suffered a second stroke that was far more serious stroke at his ranch.  A “massive cerebral haemorrhage” led to bleeding in his brain which doctors eventually brought under control the following morning after performing two separate operations. After the first operation Hadassah Director Shlomo Mor-Yosef reported Sharon’s bleeding had stopped and his brain was functioning without artificial support.

However, after a second, 14-hour surgery, Sharon was placed on a ventilator and placed in an induced coma and his Prime Minister duties were now handed over to his deputy, Ehud Olmert.
Sharon was punished by God and lingered for 8 years in a coma. He finally died on 11 January 2014.  
Here is what God says; "...I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of my people and my inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided, up my land."   Joel 3:1-2 I don’t think what happened to Sharon was mere coincidence, it was God’s judgment.

27.  In the later part of 2007 into 2008 President Bush once again pushed for a Middle East peace agreement. 
In 2008 he visited the Holy land and his first visit to Palestine.  He was in the Holy land for eight days trying to
jump-start the long-stalled peace talks. Speaking from his hotel in Jerusalem, he said again that he thought it was possible for his administration to reach a peace agreement within a year.
During his visit he said, painful concessions must be made on both sides as well as an end to the "occupation" of Arab land by the Israel.  Bush said, "I am committed to doing all I can to achieve it,"
Bush used tough language intended to put both sides on notice. He said he saw no reason why they could not get down to serious business, "starting right now."
He went on to say negotiations required security guarantees for Israel, a "contiguous" state for the Palestinians and that final borders had to be negotiated to accommodate territorial changes since Israel's formation 60 years ago.

Now here is where President Bush made his big mistake….. the borders were not to be drawn according to borders God set under the Abrahamic covenant. Bush said "any agreement will require adjustments" to the lines drawn for Israel in the late 1940s. At the same time, he reiterated that Palestinians deserve better than a "Swiss cheese" state and that a state wouldn't be viable otherwise.
"The point of departure for permanent status negotiations to realize this vision seems clear," he said. "There should be an end to the occupation that began in 1967. The agreement must establish a Palestine as a homeland for the Palestinian people just as Israel is a homeland for the Jewish people." 

The Map above:  Israel's promised land recaptured after the 1967 war.
When a leader from a nation thinks he's bigger then God and believes he has the right to divide God’s land that He gave His chosen people there is always a price to pay.
In 2008 the United States was hit with a financial disaster that was often referred to as the Great Recession.  That recession still has an effect on the world economy today. It spread throughout the industrialized world.  

Several economists said the Bush Recession was the worst since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Notice what God says; "...I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of my people and my inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided, up my land."   Joel 3:1-2 Again, I do not think it was a mere coincidence.

28. Now to 14 April 2010 and the United Kingdom where the British Advertising Standard Agency (ASA) decided that Israel’s tourism posters could not be used in England. What bothered the ASA so much? Israel used a picture of the Western Wall, known as the Kotel to Jews, to invite tourists to come and visit the many religious sites in the Holy Land. 
In the poster behind the Western Wall was the Dome of the Rock, built by the Muslims seventeen centuries after Solomon’s Temple. 

God says In Exodus 19:16-17 “And it came to pass on the third day, in the morning, that there were thunderings and lightnings, and a thick cloud on the mountain... Mount Sinai was completely in smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire. Its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly.” 

What was the date when the UK made the ruling that the Israeli government could no longer use a picture of the Western Wall (Kotel)? It was April 14, 2010 and an Icelandic volcano erupted on that date. By the next day, the ash had covered much of Europe and all of England. Every single plane in Great Britain was grounded. 

Ever since Israel recaptured her ancient capital in 1967, the Western Wall has been the most recognized image of the re-born nation of Israel. It is all that is left of that magnificent structure built to hold the shekinah glory of the God of Israel.

One detail is forgotten by people. It was only after Jerusalem had been returned to the Jews that all the Holy Places in the Holy City were open to people of all religions. When the Jordanians controlled the Holy City, before 1967 and the Six Day War, no Jew was allowed to pray there. Moreover, at that time the Western Wall was approached through a scruffy, neglected narrow alley, with lean-to houses cramming the area a couple of meters from the Wall.

The British government had the audacity to tell Israeli officials they could not use the Western Wall as a symbol of Israel. The ASA claimed that readers were likely to understand that the places featured in the itinerary and poster were all within the State of Israel... “and ASA considered that the ad implied that the part of East Jerusalem featured in the poster was part of the State of Israel. ASA concluded that the ad was likely to mislead the public. A few days later, the black volcanic cloud, floated miles above the earth between Iceland and Great Britain. could knock out jet engines. Some of the particles in the ash cloud are plain rock dust, but others are jagged-edged shards of glass, which can get sucked into jet engines. The ash clogs up the plane’s air intake, and the glass particles actually melt inside the engine and fuse solid.

For six days, planes were grounded in Great Britain. The shutdown was worse than 9-11, 2001. On the seventh day, (God's number of completeness) the eruption eased and England’s airports sprang to life again. Those six days cost the UK over $1.2 billion dollars! Do you think that was a coincidence?

Nearly all of Europe was visited by the dark cloud. Nearly a month after the fierce explosion of ash and lava, there were still random disruptions across Europe because of the wandering cloud. As one airline official said, “We can’t predict our flight schedules because the cloud keeps moving around.”

What do these disasters mean from a spiritual aspect? First of all, it reminds us that this universe is in God’s hands. With a flick of his little finger, He can bring nations to a grinding halt and affect the affairs of men on all continents. It is God who puts kings, presidents and rulers in power.

The UK’s official government Met Office spokeswoman said: “We’re all at the mercy of the volcano and there is just no way of knowing how long it will continue to erupt. We would normally be getting southwesterly winds at this time of year and it’s pretty unusual to have northerly winds dominating the weather. It’s very much a day-to-day situation at the moment. The volcano died down a bit for a spell and has now got more active.”

Notice: it is unusual for northerly winds to sweep the clouds from Iceland down to Europe at this time of the year. It’s “usually” the other way around. How coincidental!

The darkness in Europe reminds us of the ten plagues of Egypt when God was determined to free the children of Israel from her Egyptian slave masters. There were three days of darkness which the Bible said was so thick that no one moved from their house. Why would such a disaster strike Great Britain and Europe? God says he will bless those who bless Israel and curse those that curse Israel.

It was brazen and impudent of human beings to dictate to Israel that she cannot claim Solomon’s wall. The wall that once surrounded God’s Temple. There are numerous Scriptures warning that nations must not tangle with Jerusalem. What lover of Israel doesn’t know Zechariah 12:3 “And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”

Of course, this farcical demand of not using the Western Wall was only one of continuous attacks against Israel by Europeans – but especially Great Britain, as the UK academics work tirelessly to boycott Israel’s scientists and universities and her merchants boycott Israel’s agriculture produce and manufactured goods.

Of course, Europe is not by herself. The main actor now at work to divide God’s promised land, is none other than our President Barack Obama. By coddling Israel’s enemies, and demanding that construction of new apartments in Jewish sections of East Jerusalem be stopped, Obama is bringing evil to our land. Pharaoh’s actions brought destruction to his people and his economy and the same thing is happening to us. God has clearly stated that Israel’s covenant land is not for sale.

In Joel 3:2 God says “I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel... They have also divided up My land.” God does not like nations dividing up the land He promised to Israel. 

29. In May 2010 Barack Obama met with Abbas and Abbas said he would not hold direct talks with Israel until Israel stopped all settlement construction in the West Bank and in east Jerusalem. The Palestinians want to make east Jerusalem their future capital.  Israel agreed to a temporary slowdown in the West Bank, but would not halt building in east Jerusalem.

The indirect talks were devised as a compromise, but the arrangement was thrown into doubt when Israel announced new plans to build 1,600 homes in east Jerusalem. The decision, which came just as Vice President Joe Biden arrived in Israel for a visit, drew sharp criticism from President Obama. This criticism led to the worst disagreement between the U.S. and Israel in years.

The Palestinians want the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, territories Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast War, for their state.

Haaretz News Service reported President Barack Obama had presented to Egypt and Israel a plan for a two-state solution to be finalized within two years.

Obama discussed the U.S. plan with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his visit to Washington.  The plan envisioned a Middle East peace deal by 2011 and included a Palestinian state. Simply put, dividing and giving away the Land of Israel is part of the Obama plan.

Obama had conferred with "several European leaders" and they all agreed that the "international peace conference" would be run by a “Quartet “of Middle East peacemakers - the United States, European Union, the UN and Russia. The goal was to forge a united global front for creating a Palestinian state.

The BP oil explosion is shown above.

One day after the announcement of the Obama peace plan a BP oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico exploded on April 20, 2010 killing 11 people and causing the worst oil disaster in American history.

The disaster, involved a leaking deep water oil well that polluted a vast amount of the area in the Southern part of the U.S. This devastation of the marine environment and had a serious impact on the local fishing industry. Efforts at containing the spill were at first ineffective and in late June 2010 massive volumes of crude oil continued to escape and caused serious damage to the marine ecosystem and regional economy.  BP eventually settled the litigation resulting from the explosion and oil spill at a record cost of 20 Billion dollars.

Obama continues to pressure Israel to cede its 67 bounders, give up Samaria, Judea and East Jerusalem. Meanwhile we continue to get hit with record number of judgments in the U.S. In 2011 alone the U.S. had a record 10 weather catastrophes costing more than a billion dollars: five separate tornado outbreaks, two different major river floods which devastated the Upper Midwest and the Mississippi River, drought in the Southwest and a blizzard that crippled the Midwest and Northeast, and to top it off we got hit with Irene and an earthquake along the East Coast.

When it comes to the word of God and His covenants between Him and His people it is serious business.  World leaders better know what they're dealing with because when they interfere with Gods agreements with His people there is always a price to pay. 
Tornadoes this year hit medium-sized cities such as Joplin, Mo., and Tuscaloosa, Ala. The outbreaks affected 21 states, including unusual deadly twisters in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Massachusetts.
God’s judgments are always devastating to either the person or nation that attempts to divide the Holy Land.  

30. Another serious incident occurred on 11 October 2010 the Japanese laid a cornerstone in Jericho defying God's covenant with Israel. 11 January 2011 Japan condemned Israel by saying Israel had no right to East Jerusalem and endorsed a two state Palestinian plan. On 11 March 2010 Japan demanded that the Israelis stop building housing in East Jerusalem. 11 March 2011, the day of the mega quake and tsunami in Japan, Japan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs released this statement: “The Government of Japan deplores the decisions of the Government of Israel to give permission for the construction of 1,600 housing units in East Jerusalem...Japan demands that the plans should not be implemented." Who do the Japanese think they are to demand that God change his promise to the Jews concerning his gift of land to them.

This was the first time Japan used such strong language about Israeli settlements. The earthquake should also serve as a warning to Obama’s administration, whose State Department on March 13th condemned Israeli plans to build 500 new West Bank homes as "illegitimate."

31. In May 2011, God gave perhaps His clearest warning to America about dividing the land of Israel and touching Jerusalem. On May 19th and 22nd, President Barack Obama gave speeches outlining the United States policy regarding the borders of Israel. The position was that Israel had to pull back to its pre-1967 borders. This meant making Israel defenseless and dividing Jerusalem. During the May 19th speech, there was record flooding as the Mississippi River overflowed its banks and flooded millions of acres of farmland. 
On May 22nd, President Obama again made the same speech, and a mere seven hours after this speech Joplin, Missouri was struck by a tornado that destroyed much of the city. It actually cut the city in half just as President Obama was trying to do to Israel. (For more information on these disasters see the 3-DVD Series America’s Fatal Mistake offered below.) 

32. Hurricane Isaac and the 2012 Republican National Convention. The day Isaac formed as a tropical storm in August, the Republican platform committee voted to add a “two-state” position pertaining to Israel for formal convention approval. This was the second straight Republican convention postponed due to a major hurricane. This was the third straight Republican convention that became secondary news due to a hurricane. Bush was pressuring Israel during the times of the 2004 and 2008 conventions as well. The disruption of three previous Republican conventions was due to Republican positions calling for dividing the land of Israel to pave the way for the creation of a Palestinian state.

33. Awesome judgment fell again on September 11, 2012. President Obama told Israel that it was on its own in fighting Iran. This was after the President had publicly stated many times that he would always be there to defend Israel. On September 11th, he also refused to meet with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when Netanyahu came to the United States. He abandoned Israel and then humiliated the Prime Minister. 
On this day Muslim terrorists in Egypt and Libya attacked the U.S. Embassies killing the ambassador to Libya and also destroying the U.S. compound. In Egypt they overran the Embassy and tore down the American flag replacing it with the Muslim Brotherhood flag and shouting, “Allah Akbar.” 
On the same day, Moody’s threatened to downgrade the U.S. credit rating very soon if the national debt was not brought under control.
On the very day that President Obama turned his back on Israel, the U.S. was attacked by Muslim terrorists who killed the U.S. ambassador! This is a perfect example showing that what America does to Israel comes directly back on America. This one was to the very day! 

Each presidential election has enormous consequences since the President’s treatment of Israel can bring a blessing or curse on the nation. This President is pursuing a policy of dividing Israel and it is bringing a direct curse on America. 

God is holy and we must walk in the fear of Him. This means we must realize that He will destroy America for the road of rebellion the nation is on. since God does not change, we must change. Our only hope is to intercede and cry out to the Lord for mercy and an outpouring of His Holy Spirit. 

The Prayer of Hezekiah. Hezekiah was told by the Prophet Isaiah, “Set your house in order, for you shall die.” Then Hezekiah humbled himself, wept, and reminded God of the good he had done for God’s Kingdom. God heard Hezekiah’s prayer and extended his life 15 years (2 Kings 20:1-6). 

We need God’s mercy on America. As you remind God of the seven major ways America has been a blessing (see below), believe God will have mercy and give us more time to proclaim the gospel in America and throughout the world. Pray this prayer every day to remind God:

Lord our nation has been a blessing to You and Your Kingdom. I call to Your remembrance these seven blessings: 
1. America was the first Gentile nation to acknowledge that our rights come from the Creator. George Washington acknowledged the God of Israel created America. 
2. For decades, America has been the number one supporter of world missions. 
3. America ended slavery in its land. 
4. America stood tough and voted for Israel to be a Jewish homeland. 
5. America has been a place of refuge and religious freedom for the Jewish people and others. 
6. America has led the fight for the oppressed worldwide. 
7. America continues to be the number one source of humanitarian aid around the world. 
Lord, give us more time to proclaim Your gospel to our nation and the world. In Yeshua’s name, Amen. 
We will lose our nation and God will destroy our nation because of the three sins below. 
1. Abortion (2 Kings 24:1-4). 
2. Homosexuality (2 Peter 2:6). 
3. Coming against the Jew and Israel — and the major sin, dividing up the land God gave the Jewish people forever! (Joel 3:2, Genesis 12:3, 1 Kings 11:36, Psalm 105:8-11). 

 Remember what God says in I Kings 11:32, the Lord calls Jerusalem “the city which I have chosen from all the tribes of Israel.”
In 2 Chronicles 6:6, the Lord says, “I have chosen Jerusalem that My Name might be there, and I have chosen David to be over My people Israel.”

In Psalm 132:13-16, we read, “For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. ‘This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her with bread.”
