America in Another War She Cannot Win!
C.W. Wood November 2001
America has been tricked into another war she can never win. While we direct all of our military might against a small plot of ground in Afghanistan, and against a people who have no army to speak of, no Navy, nor Air Force, and who have had only a few antiqued weapons, our leaders seem to be unaware that we are really at war with the whole of the Arab nations, whose goal is to turn us against Israel so that they may move freely to take back the land they claim is theirs.
The terrorist attacks on America have been for one main reason. We have been on the side of Israel, which fact has made us to be the enemy of all the descendants of Ishmael, who have determined to establish a Palestinian State on Israeli land. It should be plain for all to see that the Palestinian leader, Yasser Arafat, intends to continue the war against Israel until the nations of the world demand a peaceful solution to the conflict. The solution they are suggesting is that we force Israel to give up the land they won in the 1967 war.
Much pressure is being applied on our government to join the Palestinians in their effort to take over the Holy sites in the old city of Jerusalem. Major church organizations such as the Vatican, the National Council of Churches and the World Council of Churches are all in favor of Israel giving up part of her covenant land in order to restore peace. The U.N. and the people in America who have interest in Arabian oil are for the Palestinian State being established on Israelís land. It would seem that they are all unaware of Godís Word that declares throughout the Old Testament, that all who come against Israel will end up in a war with God Himself.
Ps. 83:1-18, "Keep not Thou silence O God, hold not Thy peace, and be not still O God. For lo, Thine enemies make a tumult, and they that hate Thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against Thy people, and consulted against Thy hidden ones. They have said, come, and let us cut them off from being a Nation; That the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: They are confederate against Thee."
Verse 12, "Who have said, let us take to ourselves the Houses of God in possession."
Verse 15, "So persecute them with Thy tempest, and make them afraid with Thy storm."
Verse 16, "Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek Thy Name O Lord."
Verse 18, "That men may know that Thou, whose Name alone is Jehovah, art the Most High over all the earth."
These scriptures seem as if they could have been written last week, they are so up to date with what is happening in the world today. The Arab nations have taken crafty counsel against Israel. They, with one consent, want the Holy ground of Jerusalem, they are saying among themselves; let us take to ourselves the Houses of God. But, as Verse 16 goes on to say, their faces will be filled with shame before its all finished, and as Verse 18 says, "Men will know that Thou, whose Name alone is Jehovah, art the Most High over all the earth."
The war between Israel and the Palestinians started many years ago between two half brothers names Isaac and Ishmael. Isaac was the promised son, and Ishmael was the result of Sarahís plan to help God fulfill His promise of a son. God promised Abraham the land that Israel is now occupying, but the descendants of the bond woman, Hagar, do not honor Godís Word concerning that promise. The descendants of Ishmael are out to destroy the Israelites and take over their land, and any people, or Nation, that stands in their way at once becomes their enemy.
It is probably true that if America turns to side with the Palestinians, the terrorist attacks in our country will stop, but we will then be at war with a far more powerful Kingdom. God Himself will be our enemy. In the meantime, we need not think that Ishmaelís children are going to give Israel any rest. The plan should be clear to us by now; they intend to continue the bloodshed until the nations of the world demand a peaceful solution, which according to them, will only come when they are allowed to occupy the Holy Land.
While we blindly send all our military might against a small spot of land in Afghanistan, hoping to capture or kill one man and his small group of terrorist, our leaders seem to be unaware of the overall picture and the problem, which will not be resolved until Jesus Christ comes back at the end of the 3 Ĺ years of tribulation and fights for Israel, ending The Battle of Armageddon. Our government, for the largest part, has forsaken the Holy Scriptures, and knows not the plan of God.
If for example, our president should read Jerm. 12:1-3 and believe what it says, he would immediately know not to turn against Israel. "The burden of the Word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him."
Verse 2, "Behold I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people around about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem."
Verse 3, "And in that day I will 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 shall be gathered together against it."
Jerusalem is at this hour a "burdensome stone for all people." They say she is the cause of the strife and bloodshed going on in Israel, but they are wrong. According to the Bible, the troublemakers are the descendants of Ishmael who will not abide by Godís covenant with Abrahamís son, Isaac.
Gen. 15 18-21, "In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abraham, saying, unto thy seed have I given this land, from the River of Egypt unto the great river, the River Euphrates. The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Raphaims, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites."
Gen. 17:19-21, "And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; And thou shalt call his name Isaac; and I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him. And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee; behold I have blessed him, and I will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he begat, and I will make him a great nation. BUT MY COVENANT WILL I ESTABLISH WITH ISAAC, which Sarah shall bear thee at this set time in the next year."
God has given Israel the land she now possesses, and if all we had was the history of the last 53 years, we should be convinced of this fact. In 1948, when Israel was made a nation, practically the whole Arab word made a frontal attack against it. Ishmaelís descendants drastically opposed the Jews being established again in their land. But, they overlooked one great and mighty detail; God had given that land to them and had sworn that they would possess it forever. God had given Ishmaelís descendants and inheritance, but they are not satisfied with that. They desire Isaacís part also. By the help of the Almighty God, Israel won the 1948 war, an impossible feat in the natural.
In 1967, Israel was again attacked by the Arab nations and again God fought for Israel. Against overwhelming odds and in only six days the desert was littered with burned out tanks and the dead bodies of the enemy. After the battle was over, miracle after miracle was reported by the Israeli soldiers, of how God had turned the tide of battle for them.
Yet, again in 1973, on the 6th of October, Syria attacked Israel with a battle plan that, in their minds, could not fail to destroy them. They intended to take the Golan Heights which overlook Jerusalem, and then sweep down into the Holy City. They hurled more tanks and guns at Israel than any of Hitlerís generals ever had. Outnumbered by at least nine to one, the two Israeli Brigades stationed on the Golan Heights, seemed doomed, and indeed they had no earthly way to save themselves, but as before, and just as they were about to be overrun, the One who had promised Abraham the land came on the scene. By Godís supernatural power, Israelís Seventh Brigade held the northern Golan and could not be moved from it. Other strong points being fortified by Israel also held, and against overwhelming odds the Syrians were held back in the rocky canyons, and then destroyed by roving bands of Israeli tanks. By the end of the fourth day of battle, the Syrian Army, which had put together a fool proof plan to destroy Israel, lay in total ruin across the mountain. Smoke from their burned out armored divisions ascended into the sky from which had come Israelís help.
And, now once again, in the year 2001, there is a plot brewing to force Israel to give up the land God gave her. How spiritually ignorant and untaught by history, are those people who would fight against God Himself in their efforts to take Israelís land. According to an October 2, 2001 Washington Post article, the U. S. is ready to set forth a peace plan that supports the Palestinians establishing a Palestinian State on Israelís land. According to the article, President Bush and his administration have been preparing a Middle East peace plan in which the U. S. would recognize the Palestinian State.
It is a known fact that The United Nations, The World Council of Churches, The National Council of Churches, and the powerful Catholic Church are all for Israel trading land for peace. We have seen how the leaders of Ishmaelís descendants have kept the war against Israel alive with their continued terrorist attacks. This apparently has been for one main reason. They want to force the world to demand that the blood shed be stopped, while at the same time they declare amongst themselves that there will be no peace until they are in control of the Holy City of Jerusalem.
The eyes of the Bride should be focused on our government in the next few weeks, watching to see whether or not they will really change over to the side of the Palestinians. (The date of this writing is Tuesday the 13th day of November, 2001) If this is the stand we take, we will know for sure that the ground work has been laid for the Battle of Armageddon. How could the great minds in our government be so unaware that the peace plan they are proposing clashes directly against the Word of God and His plan for Israel?
No doubt, our President Bush is a good man, and this writer appreciates his patriotism and his morals, but we are also aware of the tremendous pressure being applied by, not only the governments of the world, but also by the powerful religious systems and their leaders. They are insisting on peace in the Middle East. Which they say can only come by Israel giving up land.
In the natural realm, this is probably true, but in the spiritual realm it is suicide for those who try to take the land. Why is America under attack from the terrorist? Is it not because these descendents of Ishmael are against any person or nation that is a friend to Israel? We have stood in the way of Ishmael moving in again to try and take the land he believes is his and God has approved our stand in this matter. The Cup of Iniquity for America was full some years ago, when our Prophet said, "If they do not repent this year, I predict that they will never do it." His prediction was accurate. Generally speaking, America and its leaders have not repented.
Godís wrath has no doubt been held back because of our siding with Israel, but when we turn against them, we break the last cord that has withheld Godís judgment. It would take leaders of our nation who were strengthened by the Holy Ghost Himself to be able to stand against the world that is demanding Israel to give up her land. It seems that the next few weeks or months will settle the issue for America. She is being forced to make a decision, and the wrong one will have disastrous effects.
The Bible declares that "ALL" nations will come against Israel, and this ALL includes America. The die is cast. The mold is made. The plan is progressing toward Armageddon, at which time God will again fight for His Chosen People. He has never lost a battle; neither will He lose this one. Something that should be kept uppermost in the minds of the Bride is that the Battle of Armageddon does not occur until the end of the 3 Ĺ years of Tribulation. The Bride will have been at the Marriage Supper for 3 Ĺ years, while the world experiences great tribulation. Then at the end of this time, Christ appears with His Bride to fight the battle.
QUOTE: SEVEN SEAL BOOK, PAGE 325, "Here comes Satan with all four corners of the earth, (all nations) with his Protestants and with his Catholics all together, marching right up to the Battle of Armageddon. And here comes Jesus, coming down from Heaven with His resurrected Saints, the vindicated Word." (End quote) (Jesus comes with His Saints at the end of Tribulation.)
If the Rapture should take place today, according to the Prophetís teaching and the scriptures, there would still be a time lapse of 3 Ĺ years before Armageddon erupts. Can we see where we are? Clearly the ground work for the battle is even now being laid, and if the Bride should leave today, or tomorrow, that would still leave 3 Ĺ years for the nations to finish their war plans to destroy Israel, and take her land. How very close we must be to Godís time to take His Bride out!
We believe God has been giving individuals in America their last warnings, calling on them to repent before it is everlastingly too late. In that respect, the terrorist attacks on America will be a blessing to some people. Now, let us read a statement from the Prophet in which he tells us what is going to happen to the people in the nations who come against Israel!
QUOTE: FOURTH SEAL PAGES 326-327, "Jezebel in the Old Testament is the type of the Church today, according to the Word of God in Rev. 2:18-20, ÖÖJezebel is the type of the modern Church today because Catholics and Protestants are joined together nowÖ theyíre both denominations, so itís just Mother and Sister, thatís all. They fuss and argue with one another, but itís the same thing, both harlots. Now, Iím not saying that myself. Iím quoting from ĎThus Saith The Lord.í All right.
Now, we notice, killed by a command of God, was Jezebel, was killed because God had Jehu to go down there and have her throwed out of the window, and killed Jezebel, and the dogs ate her flesh. Is that right? Ö.literal Jezebel. (And) Ahab, her King Head, dogs licked his blood, as the first Elijah predicted. See where weíre going donít you?......If that isnít exactly what the second Elijah is supposed to do when he comes to this Church in this day, restore back the original faith. I donít see how youíre going to squeeze away from it, right. Turn back to the true word. Thatís right. (I donít see how youíre going to squeeze away from the fact that God is going to destroy this modern day Church world.)
Now, if you want to see their bodies, letís turn over here to Rev. 19, after the word slays them. Now, the WORD is going to kill them. You know that. All right now, you just watch and see what happens when Christ comes, in Rev. 19, beginning with the 17th verse." (Please read in your Bible)
FOURTH SEAL Ė BOTTOM OF PAGE 327, "He feeds them to the beasts and birds. Now watch over here in the other chapter of the Book of Revelations. (Rev. 19) Killed with the sword, and death and beasts of the earth. The Jezebel Church, her actual body, is to be eaten by the fowls and beasts of the earth. Just exactly like Ahab and Jezebel was in the natural, so are they to be. (The modern day Church to be destroyed, just as its type in the Old Testament was) (End quote)
How will Church Natural be found actually fighting against God? Itís because they will have joined forces with the World System of Churches and Government, which will be led by antichrist (a Pope of Rome) and they will move to destroy Israel and take her land. As we have already stated, this is to go to war with God Himself. The battle of Armageddon is a war that the World Church systems, along with the World governments, have planned, saying it is for the cause of peace, in that peace will come when Israel is made to give up her land to Ishmaelís descendants. In all truth this war will bring peace, but in a far different way than antichrist supposes.
It is not Israel that will be destroyed, but rather antichrist and his armies, and in this way one thousand years of peace will result. While they cry "Peace, Peace" by the way of destroying Israel, peace will come through their own destruction. Yes, America has entered into a war she cannot win. May God have mercy and open some more blinded eyes before itís too late. Amen!
