|World Rages Against Israel's Return
|Yet another historic milestone passed [last] week on the end-times clock and the enemies of the G-D of Israel mourned with the
marking of Israel's 57th resurrection anniversary. On May 15th, 1948, David Ben Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister, read the Israel Declaration of Independence and this marked the fulfilling of the prophecies of Ezekiel 37:5,6,
"Thus said the L-RD G-D unto these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and
you shall know that I am the L-RD."

to Russia to China to the United Nations. Palestinian Authority President Mohmaud Abbas ordered a siren at midday to mourn the establishment of Israel and called the creation of Israel a crime. Palestinian television ran a program saying that "The Jews are the cancer spreading all over the world." Palestinian television also ran a new music video aimed at children where a young girl at the start of the video says "the Israelis took everything in 1948".
These are not the sounds of peace echoing from the hearts of either the Palestinian people or their leaders. They are the sounds of an enemy fighting against fight that the land of Israel be dismantled. These are the reverberations of G-D's enemy raging the manifestation of spiritual warfare against those G-D has chosen. The Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 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." And the Palestinian people; as well as the rest of the Arab world and a large part of the non-
Arab world, has yet to learn this simple truth.
The world, in all its depravity of human secularism, homosexuality, abortion, hate for Israel, killing and murdering, is missing the
entire point of the anniversary of Israel. That the return of the L-RD is at hand. While no one knows the date and time of the return of Christ, we do understand the season. Jesus spoke of Israel's (rebirth and His return when He said in Matthew 24:32, 33; "Now learn a parable of the fig tree (Israel); When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near; So likewise you; when you shall see all these things; know that it is near; even at the doors." Is the door of your heart open? Are you prepared for Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews; the Anointed Salvation, to enter?
