The world refuses to see the case for Israel. You see, it started all the way back to Adam and Eve where God created one man and one woman to bring about the grand creation of God. Adam and Eve had the DNA of God in them, created in His image, something angels do not have. By the way, we all have the DNA of God in us. Lucifer saw this and became jealous. His pride drove him to rebel against God and everything that represented God, which was His crown creation of Adam and Eve. However, His crown creation followed after Lucifer and tuned against God greatly in the generation of Noah. God saved eight souls to save the world, but mankind once again fell to Lucifer's whims as the tower of Babel showed man's pride, a mirror image of Lucifer.
God once again saw the world as a rebellious collection of lost souls. Therefore, God looked throughout the earth and saw a faithful man out of Ur, Sumer called Abram. Abram, soon called Abraham, birthed many nations through his descendents. God saw His love in one of Abraham's children, Isaac. Isaac had Jacob, which had his name changed to Israel through his faith, brought forth the twelve sons of Israel. The Jewish nation now will birth the Messiah and the light of God. However, the Jewish nation rebelled just like many of the other nations, but God did not go back on His promises, but stayed with His chosen people. He will also stay with us through our sins.
Jesus was born through the Jewish line in Joseph and Mary. Jesus, the Son of God, grew into an adult, ministered for 3 ½ years, died on the Cross, rose on the third day, and ascended to heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father. He will come back in all His glory to receive all His adopted children.
Romans chapter 11 tells us God caused a partial blindness in the Jewish nation for it rejected Jesus at His First coming, and we, who are Gentiles, were grafted into the tree as wild branches, but the root is still Jesus Christ. When the fullness of Gentiles is complete, or when Jesus comes back for His Church, then the Gospel will once again go to the Jewish nation so all Israel shall be saved. However, before Jesus comes back Paul states in Romans 8 those that are grafted in, the church, are warned to not see us better than the Jews, but from the wisdom of God we pray for them and their salvation. The Jew may be an enemy to the Christian in response to the Gospel, but friends for the sake of God.
The world today hates the Jew and Israel because without Israel, there is no incarnation of God, no salvation, no hope. God called a people to bring the line of Jesus in human form. For that very reason, salvation is to humans only, not angels, animals, or any other form, but only human. The Antichrist will be Lucifer's way of imitating God, and he will need a nation, the EU, and he will deceive the Jews and Gentiles alike. There will be some who will come to know Christ, including the Jew, but many will fall away.
The nations of the world are pushing against Israel because when they see Israel they see their own judgment. Jerusalem is the crown jewel of God, and the world hates Jerusalem for it reminds them of their eternal destination. Lucifer has tried to have his own capital from the land of Cain, Nineveh, Babylon, Susa, Athens, Rome, London, Washington, but none have satisfied him. The world is readying its forces against Israel because Lucifer knows his time is short. Lucifer is pushing Iran to finish their nuclear program, deceiving the West to turn against Israel in their time of need, and to ready the forces of the North and South to push against God's people.
As Lucifer is readying his forces, he is attacking the true church of God. The economic system is collapsing in Europe, even possibly before Christmas 2012. Lucifer is putting in the minds of the elites to prepare for the mark of the beast. As God marked Cain for his sin, He will allow Lucifer to mark all those who do not believe in Him, returning to the judgment of Cain.
All news items must be seen through the eyes of God. A great spiritual battle is before us. The events of Gog/Magog, the mark of the beast, the great deception, and the events of the Last Days are not only before us, but you can see the pieces today. Always remember Jesus' words they He will be with us, even till the end of this age.
"For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery?so that you will not be wise in your own estimation?that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; 26 and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written,
" The Deliverer will come from Zion,
He will remove ungodliness from Jacob."
27 " This is [i]My covenant with them,
When I take away their sins."
28 [j]From the standpoint of the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but [k]from the standpoint of God's choice they are beloved for the sake of the fathers; 29 for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30 For just as you once were disobedient to God, but now have been shown mercy because of their disobedience, 31 so these also now have been disobedient, that because of the mercy shown to you they also may now be shown mercy. 32 For God has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all.
33 Oh, the depth of the riches [l]both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! 34 For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who became His counselor? 35 Or who has first given to Him [m]that it might be paid back to him again? 36 For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory [n]forever. Amen."
DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran welcomed a group of 120 developing nations on Sunday to a summit it says proves that Washington has failed to isolate it from the rest of the world.
Opening the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) meeting in Tehran, Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said he hoped for a show of solidarity against sanctions the West has imposed to punish Iran for its nuclear activities.
"The non-aligned (movement) must seriously oppose ... unilateral economic sanctions which have been enacted by certain countries against non-aligned countries," Salehi told the summit's opening session.
Western diplomats have sought to downplay the importance of the summit and the start of Iran's three-year presidency of NAM, a body set up in 1961 to counter big power domination of international relations.
But 80 countries are participating in the summit at the level of minister or higher, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said, with 50 sending their heads of government.
And the expected attendance of big players including U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Egypt's new president, Mohammad Mursi - the first Egyptian leader to visit Iran since the 1979 Islamic revolution - will give the meeting diplomatic heft.
