Signs of Double Jeopardy for Jerusalem and US in “the Day of the LORD”
“The day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety” then sudden destruction comes upon them.” 1Thessalonians 5:2,3. The nuclear talks between the US, UK, China, France, Germany and Russia reflect a 12-year concern with 18 months of negotiations coming to a head at this time to fulfill the Bible’s sign, whether or not they all agree.
“The day of the Lord” is also the focus when “the sun shall be darkened [solar eclipse on March 20’s equinox] and the moon turned into blood before the…day of the Lord,” Joel 2:31. The “blood moon” on the eve of Passover, April 4 reminds us that it’s a time of historic judgment.
Christians say “judgment must begin at the house of God” (1Peter 4:17), but Messianic Rabbi Jeff Weiss reminds us that God has two houses that need cleaning before He puts them together, Ezekiel 37:16,17,22. .
That being so, Jerusalem may suffer judgment on Passover next year if not before. We should pray the White House will reverse its blame game that has emboldened the enemies of our only ally in the Middle East—the US should act quickly to counter militant Islam, represented by a pushy ram in Daniel 8, where a goat flies from the west to break the ram’s horns (weapons of militancy).
Historians say Alexander the Great’s victory over the Medes and Persians fufilled Daniel 8, but Gabriel said, “the vision concerns the time of the end” (Daniel 8:17) and the Medes & Persians are now Iraq,Iran/ISIS. Even before war with Iran/ISIS, judgment may come to the US, not only for pressure on Israel to divide the land of the covenant made to Abraham, but also for our own moral decay from the days of Roe v Wade.
If we see Jerusalem’s destruction, we should expect judgment that’s been coming since a “Supreme Court” approved murder of the unborn–57 million have made US uglier than Egypt that murdered far fewer babies.
