US Pressure on Israel Violates Covenant

June 2, 2009

June 1 (Bloomberg) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected U.S. President Barack Obama’s demand for a halt to all construction in West Bank settlements.

Netanyahu, who spoke at a meeting of the parliament’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said a call by the U.S. to stop all so-called natural growth in existing settlements was unreasonable.

“The LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates.” Genesis 15:18. It was a unilateral covenant in which Abraham went to sleep and only God (as a burning lamp) passed between the sacrifice, meaning that God alone has the obligation to provide the land to Abraham’s descendents.

But before God acts, He says, “I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity… Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations.” Zechariah 14:2,3

Solomon’s Temple and Herod’s Temple both burned on the 10th day of the 5th Jewish month (Jeremiah 52:12; Josephus) which is why many Jews fast on the 9th of Av. Maybe we should too, on August 2?
