Saying one thing and doing another? Join John as he shares insight on the current US Administration and their double-speak involving Israel and the upcoming March 3rd, 2015 speech of Benjamin Netanyahu to the United States Congress. John gives us a clear "reality check" on what the administration says, and what it does, toward one of our only solid allies in the Middle East.
Thousands of years ago, another Israeli found himself in a similar situation. According to the Book of Esther, Haman, royal vizier to King Ahasuerus planned to kill all the Jews in the empire, but his plans were foiled by Mordecai and his cousin and adopted daughter Esther, who had risen to become Queen of Persia. The day of deliverance became a day of feasting and rejoicing. It is now celebrated as Purim, which this year is celebrated beginning on the evening of March 4th through the morning of March 5th.
Tomorrow, the Prime Minister of Israel will address a threat of similar intensity from Iran, whose leaders have repeatedly called for the destruction of the Jewish state.
Whom will we, as a nation, serve in this conflict? Will we remain a strong ally of Israel and stand at her side in the face of increasing adversity, or will this administration thumb its nose at Israel and God and incur the curse promised by God in Genesis 12:3?
Buckle your seat belts...this coming week will be one that could impact our world for eternity.
