The Day That Changed

The world has been in an uncontrollable rage since October 7, 2023. We are witnessing global Israel Derangement Syndrome and renewed anti-Semitism more brutal than the 1930s. And towards whom is the rage directed? Towards those who were invaded, slaughtered, and kept as hostages.
Imagine worldwide hatred against innocent victims and global sympathy for barbarians because Israel supposedly stole land. So, now we see, the false notion of occupied land has become the end-time provocation for turning against Israel.
God’s land is not occupied territory. Jesus did not live in occupied territory. God owns it (Leviticus 25). He permanently gifted it to the Jews (Genesis 15).
The World Calls Evil Good!
Following the attack, the logic said that sympathy would eventually shift towards those who suffered the unspeakable blow, since many victims were women, children, and the elderly. Apparently not. The world stage featured, over several weeks, millions of people in global demonstrations on behalf of the terrorists—Hamas! Talk about a classic case of calling evil good (Is. 5:20).
For months, the world was given a sickening overdose of, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” In reality, this catchy phrase is a call for the genocide of the Jewish people. Participants in global demonstrations appeared to be many mind-numbed young robots, most not knowing any facts on the ground. Facts didn’t matter.
This was a conflict of the oppressed versus the oppressor. The so-called Palestinian was the classic representative of the world’s oppressed. Israel was the Goliath who needed to be punished and exterminated as all oppressors must be.
Brainwashed Agitators from the Tik Tok Generation
The demonstrators, in two-dozen nations, are ignorant concerning the history, as well as the geographical and political implications of the Mideast. What the Bible says is irrelevant. The rabble-rousers know nothing of Israel’s endless concessions over the decades to her Islamic neighbors, all in the name of peace.
They know nothing of the 2,000 years of wandering, persecution, and endless attempts by Kings, generals, Fuhrers, potentates, and presidents, to wipe out the memory of Israel’s existence. The brainwashed agitators are feeding off of social media propaganda, swallowing the lies like they were candy, and impressing their friends with how tolerant and justice-minded they are.
They are naïve and cannot comprehend that those they are championing, celebrating, and defending, would obliterate them in a heartbeat, in just as brutal a manner, as they incinerated Israelis on October 7, 2023. And again, for no reason other than to exercise their barbarism against the enemies of Islam.
- Revelation 13:15 ,“And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.”
- Qur’an Sura 9:111a, “[Allah] hath purchased of the believers [Muslims] their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause and slay and are slain.”
- Revelation 9:11, “Their king is the angel from the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon – the Destroyer.”
- Qur’an Sura 9:29-30, “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day … nor acknowledge the religion of [Islam], even if they are of the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] … may Allah destroy them.”
Those Israelis in southern Israel were championing the people of Gaza! The Israelis were there to benefit the Gazans—to employ them, take them to appointments, and more. They lived and believed the liberal lie: That we can befriend monsters and make them like us. That Islam is not so bad, in fact. We can all get along.
- Qur’an Sura 8:59-60, “Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them.”
Rushing Towards the Time of Jacob’s Trouble
So, let’s look at this from a spiritual perspective. We are in a run-up to the Tribulation—the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. The Jews are the primary player in that horrific drama. The raptured church is enjoying heaven. The Jews are Jacob; believers are the bride.
Satan longs to defeat God’s end-time plan, which seriously trounces him. Whether it’s Sennacherib, the King of Assyria, or Haman, from Persia, they plot and scheme. Whether it is Hitler or the Iranian mullahs, they never cease their plot to eliminate all Jews. The persecutors will come and go, but the persecution will remain until Jesus returns in the Second Coming!
As the people of Israel get more and more war-weary, as they tire of relying on fences that fail and agreements that are broken, sooner or later they will accept the cunning lies of Antichrist who comes on the scene right before the start of Daniel’s 70th Week. They sign a fateful agreement as outlined in Daniel 9:27, not realizing this is Antichrist who will eventually turn on them in an attempt to fulfill Satan’s plan of the ages: the extermination of every Jew, to foil God’s end-time plan.
Satan has plans to fulfill a 3-fold plan in order to foil God’s plan before Jesus returns at His Second Coming. His strategy is to 1) Kill as many Jews as possible so not enough Jewish people remain on earth for King Jesus to rule over, 2) Take full control of the promised land so Israel no longer controls the land for Jesus to build His kingdom on and lastly 3) Build a massive Muslim war machine able to kill Jesus (again) when He returns.
The Genie is Out of the Bottle!
What happened on October 7, 2023, is not just “one more Mideast conflict.” It was inspired by demons, and it unleashed demons on the world. The perpetrators were demon-possessed. The facts on the ground are clear evidence of that. In the natural, mankind cannot dream up such brutality. Satan can.
A genie was let out of the proverbial bottle. Something ominous spread all over the world in October of last year. It has apocalyptic overtones. You can’t put it back in the bottle! Our world was forever changed.
And all of this hatred against a people who have been a blessing to the earth! A people who gave us the Prophets, the Apostles, the Messiah; in fact, salvation itself is of the Jews (John 4:22).
Spitting in the Apple of God’s Eye
In spite of such blessings, there are entire denominations that are standing with those who perpetrated the worst massacre of the innocent in recent history. They worship social justice. They teach that the church is the new Israel (Replacement Theology). They major in minors and lead the flock astray. They fly rainbow flags in front of their church. They spit in the “apple of God’s eye” (Zech. 2:8).
I end with a quote from Dr. Natan Kellerman:
“There is something unprecedented about the European Holocaust. For the first time in the bloodstained history of the human race, a decision was birthed in a modern state, in the midst of a civilized continent, to track down, register, mark, isolate, dispossess, humiliate, concentrate, transport, and murder, every single person of an ethnic group as defined by the perpetrators.
“This was targeted at an ethnic group who so generously contributed to the culture of the world; to a people who have borne the brunt of enmity toward them because they dared to be different, and dared to insist on their difference.”
Is it 1938 again?
