Those That Bless Israel Will Be Blessed And Those That Curse Israel Will Be Cursed – So Now America Is Greatly Cursed

There are consequences for our actions, and on a national level we are going to experience tremendous consequences for the very foolish decisions of our national leaders.  When Barack Obama decided to betray Israel at the United Nations, he made the most fateful decision of his entire presidency.  Because the Scriptures tell us that those that curse Israel will be cursed, and so America is now under a great curse due to what Barack Obama has done.

 

All throughout the Scriptures there are equations.  What I mean by that is there are many passages that tell us that if we do things God’s way we will get one result, and if we do things another way we will get another result.  One of my favorite examples of this is Matthew 5:19.  I have been on both sides of that particular equation, and being on God’s side of the equation is much better by far.

As far as Israel is concerned, all throughout the Bible we see the principle that those that bless Israel are blessed and those that curse Israel are cursed.  The very first place where we find this is in Genesis chapter 12 where God makes his famous promise to Abraham.  The following is what Genesis 12:1-3 says in the Modern English Version

Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country, your family, and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless them who bless you and curse him who curses you, and in you all families of the earth will be blessed.”

In the Book of Numbers, we see almost the exact same wording being used.  In this case, Balaam had been summoned to cast a curse on Israel, but God had him deliver a blessing instead.  This is what Numbers 24:9 says…

He crouches, he lies down as a lion, and as a lion, who will stir him up? “Blessed is he who blesses you, and cursed is he who curses you.”

So how does one curse Israel?  There are lots of ways to do that, but one thing that God really doesn’t like is when someone tries to divide up His land.  In Joel chapter 3 we find a prophecy about the last days, and one of the things that God says He will really be upset about is the fact that the nations have “divided up My land”…

In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. I will enter into judgment with them there regarding My people and My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.

This warning has been around for well over 2000 years, but our leaders are completely ignoring God’s warning that He will judge them for dividing up His land.  On Friday, UN Security Council Resolution 2344 declared that all Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank are illegal, and it gave the Palestinians legal ownership of those territories.

Is this the dividing of the land that Joel chapter 3 warns about?  If not, it is pretty close.  Many are still anticipating that there may be another UN Security Council resolution that would formally establish a Palestinian state, and if that happens that would definitely fulfill Joel 3.

In Zechariah chapter 12, we are told that the city of Jerusalem will be particularly troublesome in the last days.  The following is what Zechariah 12:3 says in the Modern English Version

And it will be on that day that I will set Jerusalem as a weighty stone to all the peoples. All who carry it will surely gash themselves, and all the nations of the land will be gathered against it.

And of all the issues that separate the Israelis and the Palestinians, the status of Jerusalem is perhaps the most controversial.  You see, the truth is that the Palestinians will never accept any solution that does not give them East Jerusalem as their capital, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pledged that the city of Jerusalem will remain undivided forever.

By attempting to divide God’s holy city, Barack Obama and the United Nations are setting themselves against God, and the consequences are likely to be quite dramatic.

Sadly, relatively few Christian leaders are speaking out about this.  There has been only a limited uproar against this betrayal of Israel, and this is something that I simply do not understand.

Fortunately, there are a few that are speaking out.  One of them is Franklin Graham, and I really like what he had to say about this crisis on his Facebook page

Israel is America’s closest ally in the Middle East and the only true democracy in that region of the world. I’m disappointed that the current administration in Washington seems to have such contempt for this nation and its elected leaders. For the U.S. not to stand with Israel is shameful.

Without a doubt, what we have done to Israel is shameful.  And now that we are on the wrong side of the equation, we will most definitely be cursed.

Nothing extremely dramatic has happened so far, but there have been some rumblings.  For example, it is being reported that there have been nearly 700 earthquakes in California and Nevada over the past week…

A reporter for KWTV News tweeted that there have been at least 28 reported earthquakes since the early morning hours in California and Nevada.

A map put out by the Southern California Earthquake Data Center shows that in the last week that have been almost 700 light-to-moderate tremors in the area.

And on the east coast, a horrible winter blizzard is set to dump nearly two feet of snow on some areas of New England…

A powerful winter storm will unleash heavy, wet snow and howling winds across portions of New England from late Thursday through midday Friday, with blizzard conditions possible in some areas.

Much of New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine should see a foot of snow, with nearly two feet expected in some spots, the National Weather Service said. “This looks to be a high-impact storm with power outages and significant drifting issues likely,” the weather service warned.

But if God continues to respond to U.S. moves toward diving the land of Israel as He has in the past, we could potentially see something much more dramatic happen in the days ahead.  In a previous article, I detailed ten of the most striking examples of how God has hit America with disaster when our government has cursed Israel…

#1 The last time the U.S. government refused to veto an anti-Israel resolution at the UN Security Council was in 1979.  On March 22nd, 1979 the Carter administration chose not to veto UN Resolution 446.  Four days after that on March 26th, the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty was signed in Washington.  As a result of that treaty, Israel gave up a tremendous amount of territory.  Two days later, on March 28th, the worst nuclear power plant disaster in U.S. history made headlines all over the globe.  The following comes from Wikipedia

The Three Mile Island accident was a partial nuclear meltdown that occurred on March 28, 1979, in reactor number 2 of Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station (TMI-2) in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, United States. It was the most significant accident in U.S. commercial nuclear power plant history.[2] The incident was rated a five on the seven-point International Nuclear Event Scale: Accident With Wider Consequences.[3][4]

#2 On October 30th, 1991 President George H. W. Bush opened the Madrid Peace Conference which brought Israelis and Palestinians together to negotiate for the very first time.  In his opening speech, Bush told Israel that “territorial compromise is essential for peace”.  At the exact same time, “the Perfect Storm” was brewing in the north Atlantic.  This legendary storm traveled 1000 miles the wrong direction and sent 35 foot waves slamming directly into President Bush’s home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

#3 On August 23rd, 1992 the Madrid Peace Conference moved to Washington D.C., and the very next day Hurricane Andrew made landfall in Florida causing 30 billion dollars in damage.  It was the worst natural disaster up to that time in U.S. history.

#4 On January 16th, 1994 President Clinton met with President Assad of Syria to discuss the possibility of Israel giving up the Golan Heights.  Within 24 hours, the devastating Northridge earthquake hit southern California.  It was the second worst natural disaster up to that time in U.S. history.

#5 On January 21st, 1998 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived at the White House but received a very cold reception.  In fact, President Clinton and Secretary of State Madeleine Albright actually refused to have lunch with him. That exact same day the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, sending the Clinton presidency into a tailspin from which it would never recover.

#6 On September 28th, 1998 Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was working on finalizing a plan which would have had Israel give up approximately 13 percent of Judea and Samaria. On that precise day, Hurricane George slammed into the Gulf Coast with wind gusts of up to 175 miles an hour.

#7 On May 3rd, 1999 Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was supposed to hold a press conference to declare the creation of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital.  On that precise day, the most powerful tornadoes ever recorded in the U.S. ripped through Oklahoma and Kansas.  At one point one of the tornadoes actually had a recorded wind speed of 316 miles an hour.

#8 On April 30th, 2003, “the Road Map to Peace” that had been developed by the so-called “Quartet” was presented to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon by U.S. Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer. Over the next seven days, the U.S. was hit by a staggering 412 tornadoes. It was the largest tornado cluster ever recorded up to that time.

#9 In 2005, President George W. Bush (the son of George H. W. Bush) convinced Israel that it was necessary to remove all of the Jewish settlers out of Gaza and turn it over entirely to the Palestinians.  According to the New York Times, the very last of the settlers were evacuated on August 23, 2005.  On that precise day, a storm that would be given the name “Katrina” started forming over the Bahamas.  The city of New Orleans still has not fully recovered from the damage that storm caused, and it ranked as the costliest natural disaster in all of U.S. history up to that time.

#10 On May 19th, 2011 Barack Obama told Israel that there must be a return to the pre-1967 borders. Three days later on May 22nd a half-mile wide EF-5 multiple-vortex tornado ripped through Joplin, Missouri. According to Wikipedia, it was “the costliest single tornado in U.S. history.”

Barack Obama is scheduled to leave the White House on January 20th, and many are hoping that the new Trump administration will rapidly repair the damage that has been done to our relationship with Israel.  One of the things that is already being discussed is cutting off U.S. funding for the United Nations

Congress is already setting the stage to cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations in the wake of a contested vote last week in which the Obama administration permitted an anti-Israel resolution to win overwhelming approval, according to congressional leaders, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the current administration is already plotting to take further action against the Jewish state before vacating office.

Other punitive actions by Congress could include expelling Palestinian diplomats from U.S. soil and scaling back ties with foreign nations that voted in favor of the controversial measure, according to multiple sources who spoke to the Free Beacon about the situation both on and off the record.

Hopefully members of Congress will take very swift and decisive action once they return to Washington in early January.  Because at this moment we are definitely under a curse, and we need to do whatever we can to change direction.

And let us pray that the Obama administration will not betray Israel again by supporting a UN Security Council resolution that would officially establish a Palestinian state before January 20th.  If that happens, all hell is going to break loose in America.

    If America is cursed it’s because of her sin. Not not because she cursed Israel. America didn’t curse Israel, Barrack Hussein Obama did.

  • MotivatedinOhio

    Michael, good post! I think it is time to buckle our seat belts. I am watching all of the 15 nations on the Security Council. Japan already has had an earthquake.

  • ImNotPC

    America was cursed the minute our government turned it’s back on God.

  • Angel

    Reading about Three Mile Island made me concerned for this situation, since Russia is being taunted by Obama right now regarding “infuencing our election”…and they have been prepared to attack with nukes for quite a while now. Pray Psalms 91 over yourselves and your family.

  • Bezukhov

    What of us who ignore Israel?

  • Cindy Goodwin

    God is not going to curse America. Obama may be cursed, but not the nation. God knows what’s going on. He knows there is only one person responsible for this mess. It’s irresponsible for you to suggest that we as a people who DO support Israel, is in trouble with God.

    So, if I tell someone they just broke the law, I’ve cursed them? What kind of lawyerly position is that? It seems to me you are being awfully quick to curse all of America with this kind of rash claim. Didn’t America just kick the Obama regime surrogate out of her last hope of gaining office?

  • Bill

    Michael –
    Once again someone is using a scripture out of context to prove a wrong
    position! That verse from Genesis 12:3 is as follows: 3And I will
    bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth
    thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Note that God is saying that he will bless them that bless thee, a
    singular pronoun meaning he is to bless them that bless Abram – and further God
    says he will curse “him” that curses Abram (his name
    had not been changed as yet) – again a singular pronoun! There is nothing
    whatsoever in this promise/curse that pertains to Israel, who wouldn’t arrive
    for decades!

  • Dan Jones

    Something wicked this way comes for America… Even though America was never a “Nation Under God” nor a “Christian Nation” as people like to make you believe, what America has done in the last 2 years is spit in the face of Almighty God and we all know that when you do that it doesn’t end well…

    Always be a light that is shininginthedark

  • Dan

    Mike why do you think the entire country will be cursed because of what Barry did?
    Relax, God still believes America loves Israel therefore no punishment.

  • madchopz

    What a bunch of boneheaded poppycock!! If you think this country was cursed by the best President this country has had since Kennedy, you are absolutely ignoring U.S. history. Why did our government allow American multinational companies to profit from the Nazi regime?! Just wait until the “Orange Orangutan” gets started. This country is in a whole world of Hurt that we cannot comprehend. Russia will take the Eastern half of the country while China will take the Western half. We’re done.

    “I will make a covenant with you, by which I will guarantee to give
    you countless descendants.” At this, Abram fell face down on the ground.
    Then God said to him, “This is My covenant with you: I will make you
    the father of a multitude of nations! What’s more, I am changing your
    name. It will no longer be Abram. Instead, you will be called Abraham,
    for you will be the father of many nations. I will make you extremely
    fruitful. Your descendants will become many nations, and kings will be
    among them! “I will confirm My covenant with you and your descendants
    after you, from generation to generation. This is the everlasting
    covenant: I will always be your God and the God of your descendants
    after you. And I will give the entire land of Canaan, where you now live
    as a foreigner, to you and your descendants. It will be their
    possession forever, and I will be their God.” (Gen 17:2-8 NLT)

    and this: “If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.” (2Ti 2:13 NKJV)

    God made the covenant with Abram and at that same moment He changed his name from Abram to Abraham because of the covenant. The covenant was to him and to his descendants after him (Israel) and it included the entire land of Canaan. It is part of the covenant that it will be their possession
    forever. Even if they are faithless (which they were, as we all are
    BTW), God cannot deny Himself and He remains faithful to His covenant.

    Cursing Abram or Abraham or his descendants after him will activate the curse because God keeps His word.

  • Randall

    Amen. Thanks for saying this. Now I know that I am not the only one who believes this. Ha. But could it be that God also believes this ? He authored the Scriptures. Galatians 3:29 clearly states, “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

    THE STATE OF ISRAEL ESTABLISHED IN 1947 IS NOT “ISRAEL” AS SAID IN THE BIBLE. ISRAEL, THE COUNTRY YOU KNOW TODAY, IS NOT THE ISRAEL BEING REFERRED TO IN THE BIBLE. SMH *FACEPALM*

  • Jonathan_abc

    The book of Joel, referring to the time of Babylonian captivity, most likely was referring to nations dividing up the land amongst themselves. There was no “two state solution” between Israelis and Arabs back then. But the reality now is that the land is already divided, and by the Israelis, who have built the wall, etc. I’m sure the Arabs would want nothing better than to un-divide the land and give the Palestinians full Israeli citizenship. But then they (including terrorists) would have unfettered access to all of Israel, and they’d be able to vote in national elections, endangering the concept of a Jewish state.

    The only way to truly un-divide the land and retain a Jewish state is to force the Palestinians to leave … but the Bible also tells us to support the oppressed and to be just and fair. In fact, the prophets condemn injustice and oppression of the poor and needy far more often than saying anything that would lend support to mistreatment or expulsion of the Palestinians in our time. This is the great moral challenge here, the elephant in the room: How do we implement a Jewish state with borders based on Biblical times while at the same time obeying the ethical teachings of Jesus and the prophets?

    As to cursing and blessing, these is an assumption in the article that anything critical of decisions of the Israeli government, or of conservative parties in Israel in particular, is the same as cursing Israel, despite the fact that many more liberal-leaning Israelis are also critical of those policies. But if one seeks to defend that case in any ethical and Biblical way, then one must do so with intellectual honesty, and that’s where this article falls short. Surely there are tornadoes and other natural disasters happening all the time, and to somehow connect the dots that Obama makes some decision and a tornado happens is just not being intellectually honest. I’m sure one could find other events, plane crashes, highway pileups, murders, droughts, etc., that one could correlate with decisions that supported the conservative position in Israel as well. Remember also that Obama made some decisions to boost military support for Israel, and that didn’t stop the tornadoes. So let’s at least have some level of intellectual honesty in the discussion.

    Cindy and Don: there are far more people responsible than just Obama–he is merely the figure-head.

    As mentioned below, the USA has done far worse things than this over its history, including supporting the Nazis: if you buy a Ford or a Mitsubishi, you could be claimed to be supporting their descendants.

    And, for better or worse, Trump is no Christian, either. How much not remains to be seen…

  • a d00d

    You make some interesting points, but something you’ve forgotten is that Jehovah divorced Israel and his covenants with them fully ended once Jesus left the second time other than the ones with individuals mentioned by name throughout the OT.

    kNICC’s comment below doesn’t make 100% sense and he doesn’t elaborate (beyond screaming it). I still believe, as do most that understand it (I think), that the Parable of the Fig Leaf refers to Israel’s resurrection in 1948 and the various “lo-ammi”s in the prophecies becoming “ammi”s–that is, Israel the nation first, followed by the people eventually; this latter (the gathering) is happening with the hearts mainly. However, most of the inhabitants of today’s Israel are no different than those from Jesus’ time and, despite being friendly with the USA, still persecute Christians within its borders, though not nearly as badly as the Muslims do.

    And, of course, I have to remind you everything is not just “Obama”: there are LOTS of others as well. Our nation has been going down-hill long before Obama, the Clintons, and the Bush’s. We, as a nation, are doing most of the things the Jews did throughout the OT from Moses’ time on. About the only one we don’t do is sacrifice our children to Molech / Milcom, at least publicly. Be careful.
