Pulling Down Strongholds
Contributed by John Fisk
The United States has become a hot spot for rising anti-Christian persecution, even more so because of the growing support for Israel among evangelical Christians. There are many factors that contribute to this outcome. The rise of Israel from dust to reality as dictated by the prophetic word of Yehovah causes Satan to pause. Satan has brought all of his high placed agents to bear on His problem which is simply the prophetic word of God. As Satan’s time shortens he and his agents become more agitated.
The 2018-2019 UN sessions saw all EU member states voted for one resolution each to criticize (1) Iran, (2) Syria, (3) North Korea, (4) Crimea, (5) Myanmar, and (6) the U.S., for its embargo on Cuba. At the same time, these same EU states voted 16 resolutions to singling out Israel; Failing to introduce a single United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolution on the human rights situation in China, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, Belarus, Cuba, Turkey, Pakistan, Vietnam, Algeria, or on 175 other countries. Considering that Israel commands but 0.1% of the world population, this anomaly points to but one thing: Satan is bringing together world power to attack Yehovah’s prophetic plan concerning the establishment of Israel. This is, however, not an unforeseen event on the way to the revelation of God’s Kingdom. Yehovah continues to inform His people, those who listen, on His plan. It should be no surprise that Satan sees God’s unfolding plan and bristles. Pray against Satan’s works and watch them fall. Rejoice for Yehovah Has given His people power to tear down the works of the enemy, but rejoice more when your name is written in high places. You are in a battle and your voice raised to your God is your greatest offensive weapon; Yehovah’s name is your greatest defensive weapon: Learn to engage both.
