Summary: My opinion is we are headed toward ARMAGEDDON. The world needs to consider Jerusalem and Israel. May 14, 1948 was a changing point in this world. SOUND THE TRUMPET IN ZION.
#2 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
WE HAVE A BIBLICAL COMMANDMENT ABOUT PEACE. --- THIS VERSE IS AN IMPERATIVE COMMAND… The subject is “YOU” understood. JERUSALEM was the city of the throne of David.
Psalm 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
ISRAEL has been the “APPLE OF GOD’S EYE.” David tells us to pray for peace in Jerusalem. There is a clear promise to those that love Jerusalem and the nation of Israel. If we love and respect Israel God will prosper this nation and those who will love JERUSALEM. We need to teach others to pray for Jerusalem's peace! Prosperity to all you Jerusalem-lovers!
We pray for Israel’s security. Many nations of the world hate Israel and vow to push her into the Mediterranean Sea. The vow stands clear. This battle probably goes back to HAGAR and SARAH. The battle of the FLESH and the battle of the SPIRIT.
THERE IS A GREAT PROMISE THAT THIS GENERATION SHALL SEE THE SECOND COMING… WHAT GENERATION… ?
The nation that sees ISRAEL RE-ESTABLISHED as a nation…
Matthew 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
THE INVINCIBLE ARMADA… WE CAN’T LOSE. COME WITH ME AND WALK THROUGH SOME RECENT HISTORY. LET US SEE WHAT STANDING BY ISRAEL CAN MEAN? SPAIN?
For many years Spain was PRO-ISRAEL. Spain welcomed JEWISH REFUGEES. Spain was the power house of the world. Spain controlled the bulk of the world. Remember 1492? 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Something else happened in 1492. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella started hating the Jewish people. Ferdinand and Isabella in their hatred of Jewish people ISSUED AN EDICT TO EXPEL ALL JEWS FROM SPAIN. The King and Queen feared the conversion of the Catholics to Judaism.
Spain had been very bless for welcoming the Jews. As the Jews had been very blessed in Spain. They could leave with nothing but their lives. So the Jews prayed and as they were leaving they swallowed their diamonds, gold, silver and pearls that they possessed. Spanish ships charged massive amounts of money to carry the Jews away from Spain. Many captains of the ships would carry the Jewish people miles out in the ocean and force them to jump in the waters to drown. When the Spanish soldiers learned of the Jewish people having jewels in their stomachs, the soldiers would take swords and knives and rip the Jewish people apart. The cruelty of the King and Queen and the Spanish nation was destroying God’s people. A new paradigm shifted in the world. Terrible dark storms sank the Spanish ships. The INVINCIBLE ARMADA as it was known was completely destroyed. Spain never arose to great power again… IN 1588 130 Spanish ships failed… COULD GOD’S WORD COME INTO PLAY… I WILL BLESS THEM THAT BLESS YOU… I WILL CURSE THEM THAT CURSE YOU?
LET US MOVE DOWN HISTORY’S TRAILS AND SEE HOW GOD BLESSED GREAT BRITAIN. IT WAS SAID THE SUN NEVER SETS ON THE BRITISH RULE. BRITAIN CONTROLLED THE WHOLE WORLD.
The British Government whole heartily decided to support the ESTABLISHMENT OF A NATIONAL HOME FOR THE JEWISH NATION. In 1917 ARTHUR BALFOUR made a DECLARATION TO THE WORLD. England was supporting the nation of Israel to return to JERUSALEM.
LORD ROTHSCHILD received the declaration. God raised up Jewish people called ZIONIST that desired to return to Israel.
PRO-PALESTINIANS GROUPS AROSE. The Balfour Declaration became DIVISIVE. Non-Jewish communities denied Israel’s right to exist and the Arabs and Turks and they declared Balfour’s words were ILLEGITIMATE. HOPE SOON FADED … ENGLAND DROPPED HER SUPPORT PRESSURED BY THE WORLD’S VOICES. GOD’S PROMISE: I WILL BLESS, THOSE THAT BLESS… SO AFTER ENGLAND WAS NOT SUPPORTIVE OF ISRAEL THE GREAT BRITISH RULE FAILED.
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA PICKED UP GREAT SUPPORT OF JERUSALEM AND ISRAEL.
GOD BLESSED THE UNITED STATES. ON MAY 14, 1948 ISRAEL WAS ESTABLISHED AS A NATION. WHILE MANY PRESIDENTS PROMISED TO MOVE THE US EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM AND LEAVE TEL AVIV. NO ONE DARED… UNTIL TRUMP.

LET US UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD MEANS BY BLESSINGS:
Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
