Jimmy Carter Urges Barack Obama To Divide The Land Of Israel At The United Nations Before January 20th

jimmy-carter-public-domainIn an absolutely stunning editorial for the New York Times, former president Jimmy Carter has publicly called for Barack Obama to divide the land of Israel at the United Nations before Inauguration Day. While he was president, Carter negotiated peace between Israel and Egypt, and ever since that time he has been a very strong advocate for a Palestinian state. Carter is completely convinced that a “two-state solution” will bring lasting peace to the Middle East, but now that Donald Trump has been elected Carter knows that his dream of seeing a Palestinian state while he is still alive is rapidly slipping away. In a desperate attempt to salvage the situation, Carter is urging Barack Obama to take bold action while he still has the power to do so.


In his New York Times editorial, one of the steps that Carter says that Obama should take is to give formal U.S. diplomatic recognition to a Palestinian state…

I am convinced that the United States can still shape the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before a change in presidents, but time is very short. The simple but vital step this administration must take before its term expires on Jan. 20 is to grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine, as 137 countries have already done, and help it achieve full United Nations membership.

Of course such a move would largely just be window dressing. The new Trump administration could very quickly revoke diplomatic recognition, and so if Barack Obama really wanted to “leave a legacy” in the Middle East he would have to do something that Donald Trump would not be able to undo.

Later on in his editorial, Carter suggested just such a thing. He urged Obama to support a UN Security Council resolution that would set forth firm parameters for resolving the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians…

The Security Council should pass a resolution laying out the parameters for resolving the conflict. It should reaffirm the illegality of all Israeli settlements beyond the 1967 borders, while leaving open the possibility that the parties could negotiate modifications. Security guarantees for both Israel and Palestine are imperative, and the resolution must acknowledge the right of both the states of Israel and Palestine to live in peace and security. Further measures should include the demilitarization of the Palestinian state, and a possible peacekeeping force under the auspices of the United Nations.

In a previous article, I discussed what the three main pillars of such a resolution would probably look like…

1. It would give formal UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state for the very first time.

2. It would grant East Jerusalem to the Palestinians as the capital of their new state.

3. It would establish the 1967 ceasefire lines as the basis for final negotiations for borders between the two states.

Such a UN Security Council resolution would be considered legally binding on the Israelis and the Palestinians. And the Trump administration would not be able to undo such a resolution because it would take another vote of the UN Security Council to revoke the resolution once it had been passed and that would not happen.

Right now the rest of the UN Security Council is ready to support this kind of resolution. The only thing that has been standing in the way has been the U.S. Security Council veto power, and there have already been rumblings that Obama may not exercise that veto power if a “parameters resolution” is put up for a vote before he leaves office.

And if Obama was going to make such a move, a really good way to drum up some public support for it would be to have a highly respected former president publish an editorial supporting the move in a highly visible newspaper such as the New York Times.

Over in Israel, the government has been ignoring Carter’s anti-Israel rants for years, and they have also responded to this latest editorial by Carter with silence

As Carter’s criticism of Israel over the years has become increasingly scathing and one-sided, Jerusalem’s policy has been to largely ignore him. In line with this approach, neither the Prime Minister’s Office nor the Foreign Ministry had any response on Tuesday to his op-ed.

But without a doubt the Israelis are very concerned about what may happen next. They know the kind of damage that Barack Obama could do before we get to January 20th, and they are desperately hoping that Obama does not decide to do something exceedingly foolish. The following comes from the Jerusalem Post

A number of European governments, as well as various think tanks, are talking with Obama administration officials, urging them to take some kind of action on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the waning days of the current presidency.

Among the suggestions are a new UN resolution laying down parameters for a peace deal; US support for the recognition of “Palestine” in the UN; or – at the very least – backing or abstaining on an anti-settlement resolution in the Security Council.

Israeli officials consistently maintain that they do not know what – if anything – Obama has planned. However, the fact that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continuously says – as he did on Sunday – that he expects Obama not to divert from traditional US policy on the matter, is an indication that there remains concern over the matter in Jerusalem.

From a Bible prophecy perspective, the division of the land of Israel is the number one event that we are watching for right now, and this is one of the reasons why I have labeled the period of time leading up to January 20th as “the danger zone“.

There have been many that have warned that once we divide the land of Israel, our land will be divided as well. But in addition to the great earthquake that is coming to the center of our country, we also know that so many of the other major judgments that I warn about in The Rapture Verdict come after the land of Israel gets divided.

But even though the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have both been running stories about a potential UN Security Council resolution that would divide the land of Israel, and even though experienced politicians such as Jimmy Carter and John Bolton are making lots of noise about it, most people don’t seem to understand how immensely important this really is in the greater scheme of things.

But if Barack Obama does decide to make a move to divide the land of Israel at the United Nations at some point during the next several weeks, the consequences for this nation will be more severe than most people would dare to imagine.

    obummer’s final “legacy” perhaps…may God help us all…

    • Joan Camara

      Exactly right! We’ll be dooooomed, if this happens! I’ve already thrown the verses to the unbelievers on here, that show what God says about HIS land, and what he’ll do to all the countries that mess with it, and divide it….I wish more people would show the unbelievers the verses on this subject! Mine are up above…

  • A.S.

    I posted this many times on similar articles on this site and many others; so Mr. Obama and administration, if you are listening, if Congress is listening, if stupid liberals are listening, here it is one more time:

    If G-f forbid, Israel is divided, I said this once and I say this again. When the Gaza expulsion happened, a day later Katrina happened. Around 10,000 Jews were lost their homes when expelled. Around 100,000 Americans lost their homes.

    This time, it will not be 10x, but 40x. 40 is a mystical number in Judaism. It is the number that relates to punishment and repentance. The rain lasted for 40 days during the flood. Moses was up on the mount for 40 days to ask for forgiveness for the golden calf. The Jews were walking the desert for 40 years. This time, G-d will use 40x.

    According to a google search:

    The total population of all settlements in the West Bank was nearly 400,000 in 2014, excluding East Jerusalem. As of December 2015, altogether over 800,000 Israeli Jews resided over the 1949 Armistice Lines (including east-Jerusalem neighborhoods), constituting approximately 13% of Israel’s Jewish population.

    However, we are at the end of 2016 and I believe many people were accounted for, especially those that hold dual citizenship. I would put the number at about 1.25 million. If we take 1.25 M x 40 = 50 M. That is 50 million people that will lose their homes. So what may happen?

    California has about 50 million people. A 10.0 Earthquake could strike and destroying everything into rubble. The North East U.S. has about 50 million people. Another hurricane could strike, this time flooding everything by about 10 feet of water. The area around the New Madrid fault line has about 50 million people. The Earthquake could strike and destroy everything. Or maybe the Yellowstone volcano will erupt, burying by 10 feet of ash 1/3 of the U.S. That is way more than 50 million people, but G-d loves Israel and doesn’t look at what happens from his vengeance.

    So take your pick people. Who is willing to offer themselves to be the sacrifice? Will people in CA stand by Obama? They seem to be behind Hillary. Will people in the North East stand by Obama? They seem to be behind Hillary too! If you want to have your homes, schools, roads, malls, community, etc., then tell Obama “NO NO NO. Dividing Israel will be the death of us.”

    I hope Obama is listening. Because his legacy may just well be something like the state of California being turned into rubble. The North East being flooded with 10 feet of water. The midwest being turned into rubble. 1/3 of the U.S. being buried with 10 feet of volcanic ash. How will Obama apologize for this? How will he come to the rescue?

    • Robert Ketchen

      It is obvious to see that President Obama And former President Carter don’t read the Bible or even worse Don’t believe it. The warnings in the bible on those who concern themselves with dividing Israel are very clear . THEIR LAND WILL BE CUT TO PIECES !!!! That us folks ! The USA.

    • DJohn1

      The answer is he will not apologize for anything.
      Everything you have mentioned may just be true and it would make no difference to people like Obama.
      It would be casually explained away as a natural disaster and that can happen any time any where in the world. There is no way to fix a natural disaster of these proportions.
      Bible-wise the numbers 5, 7, 12, 13, 40 and 90 are used quite frequently.
      The very measurement of time comes from the same arithmetic system. It is based on the number 60. The ancient Sumarian culture used this number system.
      It is really based on 90. Two-thirds of 90 is 60. 12 is 5 equal parts of 60. Or 10 is 6 equal parts of 60. Thus two-thirds of 60 is 40.
      The decimal system is based on 12, not 10.
      Back then in the Bible times, some very precise engineering was based on this system of 60.
      Two thirds of 60 is 40. And in the Bible this number is used over and over again.

            I agree. Our country is already divided and has a lot of societal problems, which has nothing to do with Israel. I’m sure I will get some backlash for this comment.

    • watchmannonthewall

      Just so we understand any derivation of 40, whether 40, 400, 4,000, 40,000, 0r 400,000, indicates a test. It helps us understand what God (“Elohim”-Judge) is saying when we know these things! It adds context to the passages in which we find them!

    • Jennifer

      The expulsion was in Gush Katif in August of 2005. In August 22, 2005 the last settlement in Netzarim was evicted. Hurricane Katrina occured on August 28, 2005. This is interesting.

  • Dont Mention The War

    “the consequences for this nation will be more severe than most people would dare to imagine” Eh? What has a (sensible) two-state solution to the terrible situation with Palestine/Isreal got to do with severe “consequences for the USA”?? I really don’t see any connection? TBH (and I apologize to AS if I offend) but A.S below sounds bat-sh+t crazy linking this issue with possible 10.0 earthquakes that will kill 50 million, even to a CCT* (Confirmed Conspiracy Theorist) like me!

    *I should trademark that!

    • watchmannonthewall

      Perhaps that is also because you don;t know what scripture has to say about the land of Israel. Since

      • Dont Mention The War

        Appreciate the explanation. Thanks. Wouldn’t he be happy though that those folks were sharing their/his patch with their less fortunate neighbours? I would imagine he would love it if Israel said “Here you go poor folks in Palestine, have some of this dusty land and lets live together in peace” After all he is a forgiving type I hear and I would presume he would be well impressed with such a kind gesture. But I agree it has not much to do with the US or anybody else, but, this is a very silly situation that has been going on too long and it is clear the two concerned cannot sort out their differences themselves.

        • watchmannonthewall

          The book of Obadiah speaks of His response to those within Israel who are pushing for a division of the Land and a Palestinian state. God will deal with that also and has already stated the outcome.

          In the big picture, the Land of Israel is to become His model nation where anyone can come and live as long as they agree to live by the statutes, judgments, and ordinances He has decreed to be followed in His Land.

          This will happen when the King reigns during the Millennial Kingdom. This was His intent for the event at Mt Sinai but the people refused to listen to Him and sent Moses to hear Him. (Deut. 18:15-19)

          Those who want a portion of the Land, today, have no intention of living by His decrees. Honestly, many of those living in the Land today do not currently live by them and this is why there will again be purging, in the near future!

          • Dont Mention The War

            Still think it would be nice of your God (and a good example from him too) to give unto others some of his land :)

          • watchmannonthewall

            The problem, and we should have learned this from our own history, especially today, is that when we allow others to come into our nation that do not have the same values as those living in the land, eventually their attitudes and ideas about how things should be done bring about a dilution of values and direction, with the eventual demise of the nation.
            I can remember from years ago how my sister, who lived in Chicago, lamented the women from India she worked with speaking about how they were so happy to come to the “Land of the Free” but then voted for those who would build a central government like the one they were used to back home with all the benefits and inefficiencies. The two are mutually exclusive but many do not understand that!
            It is no coincidence this nation rose to a place of prominance as Europe became a post Christian continent, but now we have also become the same and the “lawless” are taking over, as there is no common set of values and direction for the nation.
            Sharia law is not a value I hold to. How about you? It will affect the entire structure of the nation, yet even those running our government and/or running for office (Hillary) want us to bend over for them. No thank you! I like my values and God likes His. Why should He, as Creator, make what He says is right subservient to the creature?

          • Dont Mention The War

            No, I am not a follower of any religion at all. I was brought up at a Church of England school, but managed to avoid being indoctrinated as a child by playing truant most Sunday mornings :p My values are basically: Treat others as you would be wished to be treated yourself. Everything else to me is common sense in a civilized world, but I was brought up very well by loving parents that instilled the right things into me so I know how to “behave”. I agree with your issues about a dilution of a countries morals/heritage that happens when new folks come in. I saw it happen in England from the 70’s till now and England is now fully ruined in my opinion. The clash of religions is not helping anyone. Personally, it seems life would be easier for everyone without religion, albeit parents would have a harder job instilling good values into their kids without the threat of eternal hell behind their words :) I came out alright though, so it is possible :)

          • Mark

            The reason you don’t understand what is happening here is that God’s people are (unwittingly) ashamed of Him and lie about Him regularly. The most quoted Bible verse starts with “For God so loved the world”. . . Christians pretend that ‘loved’ is present tense. In truth, God hates this current world. He hates all people who reject His offer of redemption through Jesus Christ. He sends them to HELL for eternity. He feels no obligation or desire to share or compromise with anybody. The depth of His love for His redeemed can only be understood by comparing it to the depth of His hatred for those who reject Him. If a man will fight against God, he will die.

            We are in a period where God is longsuffering in order to give those He created a chance to return to Him –
            because He so greatly loved His original creation. That period has a time limit. Mankind needs to learn Who they are dealing with but they won’t find out from today’s church.

            The Church has rejected the Words of God in favor of the words of two Satan worshippers named Westcott and Hort. Amazingly, Christians are so ignorant and apathetic that they don’t realize this and don’t know why they should care if you tell them about it. The very words of God can be found in the English language only in the 1611 version of the King James Bible. The majority of the Church today presents the false and inconsistent God given to her by Westcott and Hort. That is why Christians seem so illogical and out of touch to people of intellect.


          • Dont Mention The War

            I find it very hard to believe an omnipresent guiding farther-figure such as the Christian Lord would hate anybody. Hate is surely just a petty human trait?

          • Joan Camara

            Can’t believe everything these so called “christians” say. Some of them really don’t know the love of God, and just speak of hate.

          • Mark

            Do you think an eternity in hell is an example of the love of God? The love of God is reserved for His family only.
            God is NOT a guiding father-figure to those who are not His children. He is the righteous JUDGE of all the earth. Think about it. Love is meaningless without an opposite to compare it with. We understand light by experiencing darkness. We understand truth by comparing it to lies. Look at how perfunctorily the man in this parable is remanded to hell by the king (God the Father):
            Mat 22:11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
            Mat 22:12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
            Mat 22:13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
            Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

            Silly, shallow, and careless Christians only know the God they want to believe in. They do not know the God of the Bible.

          • iris

            Jesus talked more about hell than He did about heaven, because He loves us all, and doesn’t want anyone to go there. James tells us that His mercy exults over His judgement, but God, who is perfect, has the right to, and does, judge. Our longing for justice is inherent in us because we were made in His image. God hates sin because its effects are the opposite of life, truth, freedom and love. You’re right, God is loving, we’re told in the Bible that God is love, in fact. But because He is love, it is right for Him to hate evil, which is the antithesis of it.
            Sadly, many EU and American churches have become afraid to address these very Biblical issues, so as not to “offend” anyone, but they’re not doing anyone any favors by compromising what the gospel is all about. Mankind’s petty human trait of hate, as you so correctly stated, is what separates us from eternity with God, and Yeshua’s atonement for sin on the Tree, made the one way of reconciliation to our holy and wholly loving creator. Jesus said, “I Am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father, except through Me.”

            So you think Muslims should have more of Israel? Muslims already have several thousand square miles but yet Jews only have a few miles!!
            There’s a bunch of Muslim countries. Muslims will NEVER be happy even if they get the entire Jew nation. Don’t believe me spend 9 minutes on thereligionofpeace(dot)com. Click the links and see the photos of how crazy Muslims are. PHOTOS DON’T LIE!

          • Dont Mention The War

            No I don’t. But it seems to me the only way to solve this long-term conflict is a two-state solution. But I am not an expert on this subject by any means, I just don’t like war and violence.

          • iris

            I don’t like war and violence, either. But there are powerful entities who agree with Muslims who want to see Israel, if not all Jews, destroyed. The Bible says that all nations will come against Israel at the battle of Armageddon, to do just that, after they have divided the land. Jesus will reveal Himself to Israel then, at which time, they will turn to Him, as they realize that He was and is their true Messiah. Then, God Himself will fight back for them.

    • Joan Camara

      I suppose you don’t read the bible. If you did, you would know, what the rest of the commenters on here are saying, are true. You would know how God feels about Israel. Here, I’ll educate you a little….wish more people would have thrown you all the verses about this subject, but it looks like I’ll have to do it.

      Pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalms 122:6)

      I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you, I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed” (Genesis 12:3).


      The world will come after Jerusalem (ZECH 12:3)

      “And in that day will I 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” (Zech. 12:3).

      The prophet Zechariah warned that in the last days, Jerusalem will become “a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured….” (Zechariah 12:3

      Therefore say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “I will gather you from the peoples, assemble you from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.”’ … Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God. (Ezekiel 11:17, 19, 20)

      Isaiah 41:11 that those who “contend” with Israel will perish.

      Then I will enter into judgment with them there On behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; And they have divided up My land. Joel 3.

      And that’s just a drop in the bucket. Israel is mentioned over 100 times in the bible. Does that say anything to you?

      • Dont Mention The War

        Hi Joan, No, I don’t. Personally I don’t see the attraction of it (Isreal/Jerusalem). Ok, it has a nice beach front I hear, but I really don’t see why your God has got all heated-up about such a place when there is the whole of the rest of the fantastic world we have been blessed with to explore and enjoy. I just don’t see the logic behind Him the all-powerful getting all possessive and hateful about a specific dusty patch of land when he would technically be in charge of the whole planet anyway; and especially when that lust for that particular bit of land is STILL causing people to die/be killed 2000 years later! Basically, the morals that I grew up with don’t allow me to understand why other people can’t just chill the hell out and be nice to each other :)

        • Joan Camara

          I almost thought satan wrote that…wow. But of course you don’t understand, you are blinded for now, and untill you see the light, it will never make sense to you, sadly. It’s sooo simple though, to open your eyes, your heart and soul, to a father who loves you. No matter what, he can forgive you. Soften your heart up, life and satan (who directed your life, with your permission) have made it harden up.

          My verse is right above that says that.

      • Joan Camara

        Well, yes and no. The bible doesn’t say that…exactly. It says this:

        Revelation 12:9
        So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

        “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them; and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” (Revelation 13:7)

        So you see, he is here on this earth controlling everything and everybody…the ones who let him, anyway.
        It’s so sad that people don’t understand that satan rules this earth, and wanna blame God for everything bad that happens to them, and start hating God for what satan actually did.

    The prophecies about Jerusalem being divided and all of the nations coming against it and Israel in the battle of Armageddon, a specific battle in this modern protracted war against Israel, will come to pass, possibly very soon, from the looks of things, but woe to all those who participate in thought, word or deed, against His word, His land and His promises. God sees the hearts of individuals, but certainly, there will be dire ramifications for the nations which those individuals come from.

    I’ve read quotes from Carter, he is obviously very much against Israel, despite his affable smile. God will judge.

    I do hope and pray that this can be forestalled, but God is sovereign. Whatever He allows will ultimately be the best for all, for His will to be done and for His glory. May God keep and draw even closer to Himself, His beloved Israel. May those who claim Christ show love, respect and mercy to Israel and Jews. If they refuse, I believe they are being “high minded” as Paul says, and risk divine judgement, according to Romans. Gentile Christians are grafted into Israel, not the other way around.

    • watchmannonthewall

      I fully agree “Gentile Christians are grafted into Israel and not the other way around.” I truely pray my fellow Gentile “believers” would realize this and not be “high minded” against God’s people who are born of the flesh to Abraham! We should be thankful!

      As to Armageddon, it is the battle where the wrath of God is poured out on the nations and the result is comparable to the Flood of Noah.

      The wicked are all destroyed, “taken” if you will, while the righteous are all “left behind”. Sort of the opposite of current theology!

      I’ve observed over the years, God is about 180 degrees out of phase with mankind. I think it is because “the flesh” is 180 degrees out of phase with “the Spirit”! I believe Paul said it best: The two are contrary, one to the other!

      • MEP325

        Being born Jewish does not grant you automatic salvation. You can be Jewish and be on a fast track to hell. Jews have to embrace Christ like everyone else. Christians are the new Israel.

        • iris

          Election=God’s desire, election is also tied to God’s faithfulness to His promises. Election does not mean God does not grant free will, even though He is sovereign. We are made in His image, and I don’t think He is a mindless cog. I also do not believe He is fickle, like some allegorical Greek myth-god, which is the line of thinking where replacement theology comes from. It has been responsible for the persecution and death of millions of Jews for over 1500 years, as that poison infiltrated the RCC from the beginning, and Luther and Calvin bought into the hatred by way of the culture they grew up in. Do you think God will keep His promises to a true Christian, even though they are still being sanctified? I do. But I also recognize that God is faithful to His promises and election regarding Israel. Jesus Himself said that He was going to be delivered up to the leaders of His people and the Gentiles. We all killed Jesus with our individual sins, if you would be logical, but love is greater than logic, as Jesus also said that no one would take His life from Him, but that He would lay it down, and that He would pick it up again. He loves Israel and Jews. He loves you and me and every person created. He hates evil and sin. The first disciples and evangelists, including Paul (Shaul) were practicing Jews. This thinking didn’t take hold until about 200 A.D. and is one of the main heresies in the Christian faith which are still around today.

          I do agree that salvation is comprised of the reception of and subsequent action upon, God’s gift of faith in His love, grace and mercy through the Messiah, Yeshua of Bethlehem.

          I fully agree being born Jewsih doesn’t grant you “automatic” salvation. Paul made this point clearly in Romans 9:1-5:
          “I am telling the tuth in Christ. I am not lying, my conscience bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit, that I have great sorrow and unceasing grief in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed separated from Christ for the sake of my brethern, my kinsmen, ACCORDING TO THE FLESH, who ARE Israelites, to whom BELONGS the adoption as sons, and the glory and the covenants and the giving of the Law and the temple service and the promises, whose are the fathers [Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob] and FROM whom is the Christ according to the flesh, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen.

          Isn’t it interesting Paul writes in the present tense that to Israel, according to the flesh, BELONGS the adoption as sons, the glory, the covenants, the Law, the temple service, the promises? No hint any of this has passed from those born to the fathers!

          He affirms this in Romans 11:15-21 when he says the Gentiles, “a wild olive” [tree], have been grafted INTO Israel. He did not say the Gentiles “replaced” Israel! In fact, he goes on to say that if the Gentiles exault themselves against the natural tree, God is able to break them off just like He did some of the natural branches!

          Paul also says in Ephesians 2:11-13 that the Gentiles were at one time far away from being included in the commonwealth of Israel, but now through Messiah, they have been brought near, i.e. into, it. Paul did not say the Gentiles replaced Israel, he said they were brought into it. Israel does and has always existed independently of the Gentiles!
          Many Gentiles ignore the NT scriptures, except for their favorites, of course! Acts 6:7 says, “And the Word of God kept speading; and the number of the disciples CONTINUED TO INCREASE GREATLY IN Jerusalem, and a great number of the priests were becoming obedient to the faith!” For some reason many Gentiles think the Jews completely rejected Messiah though Scripture clearly says otherwise.

          In fact, In Exekiel 44:15, during the Millennial reign of Messiah God has this to say about those priests in Acts 6:7, “‘But the Levitical priests, the sons of Zadok, who KEPT My charge of My sanctuary when the sons of Israel went astray from Me, shall come near to Me to minister to Me; and they shall stand before Me to offer Me the fat and the blood,” declares the LORD God.” There has been a holy, santified, group of Levitical priests who have obeyed God since the time of David!! I’ll bet you they know the scriptures way better than you or I!! We don’t know where or who these people are, but God does!

          We see that God SAID, the sons of Zadok, the high priest of David’s time, were still faithful to God at the time Messiah was walking and talking on the earth and HAVE BEEN faithful to Him since then! They will minister to Him in the Millennial Temple! One of these priest’s was John the Baptist’s father!

          Bottom line, scripture and neither Paul nor Jesus ever taught the Gentiles replaced the sons of Israel. They were given the opporunity to be ADOPTED as sons and come into a proper relationship with God and the Son, but the nation of Israel is the nation they have been grafted into and is the one which Messiah will reign over during the Milennial Kingdom. It is well past time we quit listening to men and their doctrines and begin to live by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.

          “O Lord, my strength and my stronghold, and my refuge in the day of distress; to Thee the nations [Gentiles] will come from the ends of the earth and say, ‘Our fathers have inherited nothing but falsehood [lies], futility [emptiness], and things of no profit [void of spiritual value].” (Jer. 16:19)

      And I bet you voted for Trump, who said he has never asked God for forgiveness.

      • iris

        We weren’t able to vote this year, nice try, though. Have you ever asked God for forgiveness? And what hubris have you, that you would think I would have wanted to vote for a specific person? Sounds like you’re saying that real Christians should only have voted for Hillary Clinton. nice try

        • RalphEllison

          “Sounds like you’re saying that real Christians should only have voted for Hillary Clinton” – No, I didn’t say or imply that. “Nice try.”

          I question those folks who attack President Carter (a Christian who walks the walk), yet voted for Trump, a man who openly said he never asked God for forgiveness.

          • SurrealReality

            Dividing Israel is NOT “walking the walk”. God specifically speaks against it in the Bible.
            “Nice try” though.

          • RalphEllison

            How do you even know the people there calling themselves Jews are really Jews?? Several Jewish writers and historians have said that they are realky a Turkic people called Khazars who converted to Judiasm around

    The true legacy of Mr Obama is this: war, chaos and destruction in the Middle East. As if 400,000 dead Syrians, the refugee/jihad invasion of the west, collapse of formerly stable ME states, and a million missing and displaced Iraqi & other ME Christians, is not enough. I also agree, if Palestine state is recognized, we’re looking at WW3 here. Pray earnestly, and if you can, start buying energy ETFs in addition to your ongoing prep.

      The entire financial sytem is corrupt. It is based on unjust measurements and weights, an abomination before our King. I wouldn’t buy such things if I were you. Everything will be going wonderfully, and then all of the sudden you will have lost everything when the King judges the Babylonian system. You can try and beat the Beast system if you wish. Satan is smarter than we are.

      You seem to forget that the most conservative and “Christian” administration in modern American history destroyed the Middle East and left it for President Obama. Just like they left him a global finacial crisis.

      • susie

        I am specifically referring to the ‘Arab Spring’ wherein many stable ME governments were overturned by Islamic rebels groups armed and funded directly by the Obama administration. These groups rapidly evolved into ISIS, and still a lot of its funding is from the US, since almost all of the fighters in the war against their govt end up defecting to ISIS. Bush’s invasion of Iraq & Afghanistan are peanuts compared to this globally destructive chaos unleashed by Obama.

        • RalphEllison

          Your analysis is comical. The invasion of Iraq was the first prong in a multi-state attack in the Middle East by the Neocons, most of whom are in the GOP. These plans go back 20 years. They involve some hawk Democrats, but mostly the GOP.

          1) Protecting the Realm and Israel
          2) Project for a New American Century
          3) and Wesley Clark’s youtube video about his conversation at the Pentagon after he retired.

            My analysis may be somewhat simplistic. But you can’t argue against the numbers /both count, displacement, and the scope of the operation geographically.

          • susie

            But I’ll review your articles you cite

  • Dont Mention The War

    Interesting! Thanks again :)

    Jimmy Carter is a globalist/satanist. Like Obama, he never was bright enough to be president. He fooled many people into thinking he was a Christian and was elected president. The best thing he could do for America and the world is to die soon, and start roasting in Hell.
