Israel Hayom reports that US ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides, a Jew by birthright, said in an interview that he is “really angry” with Israel’s MK Bezalel Smotrich for his recent statement about the wiping out of the Palestinian village of Huwara, adding that since Smotrich will soon fly to Washington, if he could he would “throw him off the plane” (ref. 1, 2). His cannot be read as an empty threat because, some diplomats, especially those who have been photographed sitting next to William Burns, the current head of the CIA, are diplomats only for the sake of diplomatic cover.
Bezalel Smotrich is not only an elected member of Israel’s Knesset, he is also the sitting finance minister. Smotrich said what he did about Hurawa, after enraged Jewish settlers went to Huwara and clashed with Palestinians, setting the village ablaze. The violence was provoked by the shooting dead of two Jewish brothers as they sat in their car in the nearby Jewish community of Har Bracha (ref. 3). The Palestinian shooter fled the area and remains on the run. Palestinians celebrated the killings of the two Jewish brothers by handing out sweets (ref. 3).
The rage of Jewish settlers in Huwara was dampened only when security forces intervened with tear gas and stun grenades. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the violence and asked citizens not to take the law into their own hands, promising that the murderers would face justice.
The first thing to be said about all this is that it is a hadith of Islam’s prophet Muhammad that in the last days Muslims are to seek out the Jews and kill them so that even a tree or a rock cannot hide them.
Furthermore, in the Bible, it is prophesied that in the last days the heathen “round about” Israel are to come to Jerusalem and the valley of Jehoshaphat, to be judged by God.
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about [nations surrounding Israel], when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.Zechariah 12:2-3
Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your ploughshares into swords, and your prunninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about… Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to to judge all the heathen round about.Joel 3:9-12
So, in this fight between Islam and Jerusalem, Islam is going to draw first blood.
But then, at the time of the seven trumpets and seven vials, the Devil’s armies will be wiped out.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.Zechariah 12:9
Some Islamists will die in the land of Israel. Others will be chased away, only to die elsewhere. Either way, Islam is coming to an end!
Thy shepherds [imams] slumber, O king of Assyria: thy nobles shall dwell in the dust: thy people is scattered upon the mountains, and no man gathereth them. There is no healing of thy bruise; thy wound is grievous…Nahum 3:18-19
The Israel Defence Forces, IDF, will be involved in carrying out this vengeance from God.
And I will lay my vengeance upon… [one nation] by the hand of my people Israel: and they shall do in… [that nation] according to mine anger and according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord GOD.Ezekiel 25:14
In that day shall… [another nation] be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the LORD of hosts, which he shaketh over it. And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto… [that nation], every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the LORD of hosts, which he hath determined against it.Isaiah 19:16-17
Gaza, the currently semi-autonomous and very Islamic part of the state of Israel, will be completely conquered by the IDF.
For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up. Woe to the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant… And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah…Zephaniah 2:4-7
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will stretch out mine hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethims, and destroy the remnant of the sea coast. And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.Ezekiel 25:16-17
I bring all this up now to make the point that the thinking of Bezalel Smotrich and also Itamar Ben Gvir and others is spot on. Remember, what is about to unfold in these last days will be a winner take all type conflict.
If you are a Jew, wherever you happen to be, you must stand with the government of Israel, the side of the LORD.
Likewise, if you consider yourself a Christian, then your loyalty must be to heaven and to the kingdom of God, no matter the nation you currently reside in. Remember, the Bible explains, Christians are a peculiar people, which in times past were not a people but now have become the people of God, fellow citizens with the saints.
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.1 Peter 2:9-10
Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;Ephesians 2:19-20
Of course, if you still do not know what is the kingdom of God, then you are off track and on the way to perdition.
Now, returning to the matter of Thomas Nides, the US ambassador to Israel. This man is a Jew by birthright, yet he has thrown his lot with the adversary in that he works for the American government, Mystery Babylon, and in regard to the state of Israel, he chooses the Palestinians over the Jews.
In the Bible, there is a prophecy about the Antichrist having intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.
… he [the Assyrian, leader of the Islamic State] shall… have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them [the CIA] that forsake the holy covenant.Daniel 11:30
The holy covenant is God’s promise to Israel of victory, redemption, and holiness.
And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer [Jesus Christ], and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election [the chosen or elect of God, ie saints], they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes.Romans 11:26-28
And the Redeemer [Jesus Christ] shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD. As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.Isaiah 59:20-21
The promised land, what was promised to Abram in Genesis, is a part of this holy covenant. Indeed, this is the original and real Abraham accord, in contrast to the contrivance and spin of America.
In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river Egypt unto the great river EuphratesGenesis 15:18
Of the increase of his [Jesus Christ] government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.Isaiah 9:7
Any Jew who takes the side of Islamists over Israel is someone who forsakes the holy covenant.
Thomas Nides’s stated wish, or slip of the tongue, that Bezalel Smotrich should be killed is also noteworthy in that it is a glimpse of Babylon’s coming open betrayal of Israel.
The violence done to me and to my flesh be upon Babylon, shall the inhabitant of Zion say; and my blood upon the inhabitants of Chaldea, shall Jerusalem say.Jeremiah 51:35
