Jerusalem Undivided or Not?

July 22, 2017

 

 

According to Yashiva world news Naftali Bennet’s Jerusalem law passed.

The Ministerial Law Committee on Sunday 22 Tammuz passed Naftali Bennet’s Jerusalem Law, resulting in a significant achievement for Bennet.

 

The bill requires a minimum vote of 80 of the 120 MKs in order to divide Jerusalem. Bennet applauded the committee’s decision, stating “Jerusalem was saved twice from being divided; once in a process headed by Ehud Olmert and once by Ehud Barak”.

 

Bennet added that “the Unified Jerusalem Law passed by the ministerial committee on legislation will prevent any possibility of dividing Jerusalem, and unity around the unified Jerusalem law will strengthen our position in the world and prevent future pressure on Israel.”

 

Joel 3 (KJV)

1 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,

I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.

 

What is going to change that Israel will accept their land divided?

 

We see Bennet’s bill passed on 22 of Tammuz.

Ezekiel 8 (KJV)

1 And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of the Lord God fell there upon me.

2 Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber.

3 And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.

4 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.

5 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.

6 He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations.

And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.

Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.

And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.

10 So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about.

11 And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.

12 Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, the Lord seeth us not; the Lord hath forsaken the earth.

13 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.

14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.

16 And he brought me into the inner court of the Lord's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshiped the sun toward the east.

17 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.

18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.

 

According to Bible Study Tools Tammuz was a sun god, husband of Ishtar…you know Easter where the Christians again worship in the sunrise service TO HONOR Easter (Ishtar).

 

TAMMUZ

tam'-uz, tam'-mooz (tammuz; Thammouz):

(1)     The name of a Phoenician deity, the Adonis of the Greeks. He was originally a Sumerian or Babylonian sun-god, called Dumuzu, the husband of Ishtar, who corresponds to Aphrodite of the Greeks. The worship of these deities was introduced into Syria in very early times under the designation of Tammuz and Astarte, and appears among the Greeks in the myth of Adonis and Aphrodite, who are identified with Osiris and Isis of the Egyptian pantheon, showing how widespread the cult became. The Babylonian myth represents Dumuzu, or Tammuz, as a beautiful shepherd slain by a wild boar, the symbol of winter. Ishtar long mourned for him and descended into the underworld to deliver him from the embrace of death (Frazer, Adonis, Attis and Osiris). This mourning for Tammuz was celebrated in Babylonia by women on the 2nd day of the 4th month, which thus acquired the name of Tammuz (see CALENDAR). This custom of weeping for Tammuz is referred to in the Bible in the only passage where the name occurs (Ezekiel 8:14). 

 

Very puzzling why anyone who truly loves God and knows He hates idol worshipers would name their calendar after a false deity. The Israelite's know better as they have had historical years of God leading them out of idolatry.

 

Our nation as well is guilty, found this on a website: January – Janus god of gates and doorways, February- Roman festival of purification, March – Mars Roman god of war, April – Aphrodite Greek goddess of love and beauty, May – Maia the great one, June – Juno, goddess of the Roman pantheon, July – Julius Caesar named after himself reforming the Roman calendar, August – Augustus Caesar, named after himself, September – the 7th month, October – eighth month, November – 9th month, December 10th month.

 

We have the same problem with the days of the week.

Babylon is so close to the heart of this world that it never left. We know what is going to change. You can’t love your nation more than you love God. Obedience to God is first and foremost. The nation of Israel will one day see their false messiah. They will exalt him above our one true God. They will be deceived as many are now. God gave the land to Israel no doubt about it, but what is at stake here is their allegiance to a man who will seek after their destruction.

 

How many believers are deceived at this time? Only God knows but there are many. Their allegiance is closer to men than to God.

We are willing to divide our hearts just as the Israelites one day will one day give homage to the anti-christ and false prophet. The reason we give away our devotion is because our hearts have become adulterated. We seek after kings and men of this world and the world itself. This is where deception lures us into Babylon and the harlot.

 

It is time more than ever to rid Babylon out of our hearts and lives. We need to ask ourselves where is our heart divided, where have we sought after other gods or idols, where have we gone after teachers and wolves to soothe our itching ears? The tentacles of Babylon will become like a vice grip if we allow it. It is time to flee and remove the stench from our souls.

 

Zechariah 14 (KJV)

1 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

For 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, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.
