A Message by Shira Sorko-Ram founder of Maoz Israel (Fortress Israel)
Tonight I’m giving you a perspective of America from the vantage point across the sea - from Israel. Here is what I see.
America is the most powerful nation that has ever existed. It was founded by a majority of God-fearing immigrants who came searching for freedom of religion. Except for Israel at her pinnacle, America has nurtured the greatest God-fearing society, which in turn, created the most remarkable democracy ever - in the history of mankind. But today it has enemies. Evil enemies that are determined to bring this nation down - and all the Western democratic countries with it.
The Brit HaHadasha (the New Testament) says that in the Last Days it would be as it was in the days of Noah. The Tanach (the Old Testament) specifically states that Noah’s days were dark with wickedness, and the earth was corrupt and filled with violence.
If you want to really understand what is happening in the world today, it is essential that you be a faithful reader of the entire Bible. Because only in the Bible can we learn how God dealt with His beloved Israel, which in turn explains how God deals with nations today that at one time followed the God of Israel. Here’s how it works:
When a nation experiences a spiritual awakening to the One True God, He always blesses that nation. But as the people prosper, they began to worship other gods - self, money, immorality, addictions, power and so on.
God sends his servants then to warn that nation. But after many warnings with no response from hard hearts, that nation begins to decline morally, physically and economically, and finally spirals into lawlessness and chaos.
It either becomes a mere shadow of what it once was, or it disappears.
Today in America - and I am focusing on America - violence and corruption have spread everywhere. (And I must sorrowfully add that much of what I say about America also describes Israeli culture.)
The root of America’s decline results from this country’s turning away from God. In modern English we call it atheism or agnosticism. You and I know that no void ever remains static. A heart without God will always be filled with other gods. Then, as happened with ancient Israel, everyone does what was right in his own eyes.
THE RELIGION OF ATHEISM
Today the religion of atheism is being taught with a vengeance by arrogant professors in once-God-fearing institutions. Their students have graduated and they fill positions of leadership, including political offices and mainstream media - which have a great influence on America’s culture and spiritual environment. This god-less generation is now spreading its atheistic religion into your homes, into your schools, and into your laws, so that the next generation will only know to accept this culture as the norm.
THE RELIGION OF SEX AND VIOLENCE
Next, Hollywood with its incredible talent, beauty and creativity has reached into every state, city and town, every computer and every smart phone, with its gods of sex and violence. The irreligious universities and the media eat it up.
The person known by many as the greatest living athlete has so hated his body that he became a transgender. The world has honored him with the Arthur Ashe award for courage by ESPN, which shows the hopelessness, the lostness, the unhappiness of a generation that worships itself. Moreover, it is spitting in the Creator’s face. Yeshua the Messiah clearly confirmed the Tanach when He said that from the beginning of creation, God made them male and female.
THE RELIGION OF ISLAM
But there is still another evil eating away at America. The religion of Islam has as its goal to completely transform America by replacing the constitution with Sharia law. You don’t believe it?
In 2004, the FBI uncovered a Muslim Brotherhood trove - two truckloads of documents explaining Islam’s five-phase blueprint to take over the United States.
I’ll quote from their mission statement:
“The Muslim Brotherhood must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within…so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
Remarkably, these documents of the Brotherhood’s plans could be found on the uscourts.gov website. I know because I used facts from them for articles I wrote in the Maoz Israel Report starting last January.
Last week I looked, and they had been deleted from the government website. However, you can still buy the basic plan in a booklet from Amazon called “An Explanatory Memorandum” from the Archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.
Because of the corruption of America’s government and turning its back on the God of our forefathers, it has been blinded to the mission of Islam in America. Even today, Islamists, according to their time-line and goals, are taking ground in the U.S. - especially on American campuses.
America’s inability to discern Islam’s theological goals explains why America and Europe insist that Israel give the Palestinian Muslims the privilege of creating an Islamic state in the hills overlooking Israel’s cities and airports.
According to all the polls I have seen, Hamas will win the next election in Judea and Samaria - the West Bank.
Isn’t it interesting that the place where Yeshua is going to return - the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem - is claimed by Muslims as the Islamic capital of the PLO Palestinian State?
And so the strangest marriage imaginable is taking place in America - the far-left atheists and agnostics, together with Hollywood’s purveyors of filth and carnage are teaming up with Muslims to reshape America as an anti-Jewish, anti- Christian, “free society.” All of them are at work to replace democracy, freedom of religion and the nation’s moral compass with hedonism.The unexpected twist for this nation would be to learn that Islam then plans to replace hedonism with Sharia.
Even now Muslims are on track with their undemocratic Islamic plans. Their immediate push is to demand that the U.S. pass laws against persecution - of Christians? Anti-Semitism? Anti-Zionism? No, they are demanding laws against what they call Islamophobia, claiming it a hate crime - so they can continue to work their plan unopposed.
They vilify Israel, Jews and Christians. But they are demanding that it be illegal to speak against Islam.
And the atheistic judges are getting crazy enough to mandate such a law. Opposition to Islamophobia already has much traction in the U.N. and in Europe.
THE RELIGION OF ANTI-SEMITISM
And that brings me to one more powerful evil force at work in America today - the religion of anti-Semitism.
The atheist professors and their Muslim students, together with the free souls of Hollywood and much of the media and even the LGBT movement have banded together to push The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions - the BDS movement against Israel - which is now spreading like wildfire across campuses and even mainline churches. The intent of the BDS is to isolate, demonize, collapse its economy and finally destroy the Zionist state. In America, and sadly, even in Israel, there are not a few liberal Jews caught up in this weapon against the Jewish state.
CAN WE WIN?
The question is, can we win this battle? It is possible, but not probable. We can… but it will take enormous commitment, boldness and self-sacrifice. Ari spends considerable time in China. Many of the Christian leaders with which he is in contact there, have spent years in jail because they refused to compromise their faith. Are we willing to go to jail for our faith?
Listen, Messianic Jews and Christians! Only a massive spiritual surge could win this war of wickedness, fighting to conquer this amazing country.
Unrelenting prayers and bold, courageous actions of God’s people could turn this around. The fact that the Obama administration has just signed congress’ trade laws into effect with an amendment that no EU country that has free trade with the U.S. can boycott Israel. . . . that’s huge! This is an enormous victory for Israel. I would truly call this an act of God! But the fight has just begun!
[Note: the next day after I gave this message, the U.S. State Department announced that although President Obama had signed the bill into law, he was not going to enforce the law! (Watchman comment: the "great leader" has spoken!) When I included this event in my message, it had seemed too good to be true. Sadly, it was….]
But here is our great challenge.
We must hate atheism but love the atheists.
We must hate perversion of sex but love the homosexuals.
We must hate the god of Islam but love the Muslims.
Yet we must stand up with every fiber in our being for the God of Israel, and for Zion’s sake. We must stand up for the Land that God repeatedly said He has given to the Jewish people. We must refuse to allow America to turn its back on Israel.
I suggest you join a group or organization that is actively fighting one or more of these evil belief systems.
Most of all we must fearlessly read the Bible, believe the Bible and bring its truth of salvation through Yeshua the Messiah back to America in every possible way through bold unified activism - so that this nation will not be destroyed, but once again be a light to the nations - as a grafted-in olive branch to the Olive Tree, which is Israel.
May America (and I include Canada, the UK and all other nations) stand with Israel until the day when all Israel shall be saved, and all the ends of the earth will worship only One God whose light shines from Zion, the God of Israel and His Son Yeshua the Messiah, King of the Jews.
May God bless Israel! And may God bless the United States of America!
