Will America be cursed?
Obama’s peace plan would make the home of Christianity the capital of an Islamic state
By MIKE EVANS
On July 19, 2013, Secretary of State John Kerry announced President Obama’s new peace plan, which has the support of the Arab League. In essence, it is a plan to pressure Israel to divide Jerusalem from east to west, making east Jerusalem—the home of Christianity—the capital of an Islamic state. Most of Judea and Samaria would be included.
The plan has the support of the European Union. During the same week, the EU announced sanctions to exclude all Israeli settlements in the “occupied territory” from European cooperation. It is an economic declaration of war against Israel, and would cause the Jewish state tens of billions of dollars in trade.
It took the US government six months of shuttle diplomacy and six trips to the region to accomplish this feat. Stunningly, at the same time, more than 100,000 Syrians have been killed in a civil war, the Muslim Brotherhood has torn Egypt apart, Iran is but the turn of a screwdriver away from going nuclear, and Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist organizations are plotting every conceivable act to kill Jews. No, none of those issues was on Kerry’s diplomatic radar screen.
Giving the PLO, the terrorist organization responsible for the Munich Massacre, the attack on the Achille Lauro, and numerous other heinous assaults since its inception, a state demanded by it since December 1988 was first on the agenda. At the specially convened 43rd session of the United Nations General Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland, Yasser Arafat said the magic words, “I denounce terrorism.”
I was standing in the room with the executive council of the PLO and boldly confronted Arafat. I held aloft the PLO covenant that called for the destruction of the State of Israel and demanded, “If you denounce terrorism, denounce this.” He became enraged and shouted, “Shut up, shut up, shut up! What must I do to make you shut up?”
I didn’t comply with his orders then, and will not do so now. God-fearing Americans have been silent. With his actions, President Obama will bring a curse upon this nation. The prophet Zechariah, in chapter 12, verses 2 and 3 declared: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem…On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.”
The United States is in prophecy ever since the inauguration of George Washington, who on April 30, 1789, placed his hands on Genesis 49:10, which reads: “The scepter shall not depart from Judah…Until Shiloh comes.” From that day forward, America has been blessed, because she has blessed the Jewish people and Israel. Genesis 12:3 says, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curses thee.”
Now, Secretary of State John Kerry, under the direction of President Barack Obama, rather than confronting the radical Islamic virus that is rampant in the Middle East, is antagonizing the State of Israel, America’s greatest ally in the region. If God-fearing Americans do not take a stand, a curse will fall upon the country. The United States must not touch prophecy by leading the nations of the world to divide Jerusalem, or by taking Judea and Samaria from the Jewish people.
Throughout history, the nations that came against Jerusalem were cursed by God and ended up in dust and ashes. The Roman Empire collapsed after destroying the Temple and leveling Jerusalem. Israel was God’s dream; the title deed belongs to God Almighty. When he gave Jerusalem D.C. (David’s capital) to the Jewish people, there was no Washington, D.C. or even a United Nations—only pagan nations. The prophetic spotlight of heaven is on Israel. It all began there, and it will all end there.
If America touches God’s prophetic plan and people, she will be sticking a finger in the eye of God: “For he that touches you, touches the apple of His eye,” (Zechariah 2:8.) “I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; They shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent,” (Isaiah 62:6.)
