As tension mounts over catastrophic weather and military threat, two powerful allies may meet a third time in less than a year — a step, I believe, toward supernatural sanity and world peace.
And we continue to pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.
On Trump and Kim Jong-Un
A few short weeks ago, many laughed and were angered at Trump who threatened the Korean leader after he sent a missile toward the US. Reporters and anti-trumpeters accused the American president of being a twin with Kim Jong-Un. But as the leader of North Korea then set his sights on Japan, no one laughed any longer.
Trump’s declaration of “Fire and Fury” was met with sarcasm and accusation; and yet, his words were effective. The North Korean backed off from his threat against the American base in Guam.
Instead, he sent another test missile; but it was over Japan, and it was perceived as “no threat to the United States”.
Now the media is responding differently too, to this missile which flew over Japan. They aren’t talking about Trump or Kim Jong-Un. Now they are talking about Washington and Pyongyang. Why? Because it’s brings distance and detachment which these leaders and the world needs.
We continue to pray for peace.
Two Allies to meet Again
And as a positive side to the tension in the world, there is hope when two powerful people meet to strengthen their alliance. President Trump will meet with PM Benjamin Netanyahu — again — in September.
September… September… September
September is the first month of the Jewish Calendar. It is the month when there is a feast of Tabernacles, reflective of the Hebrews in Egypt erecting tents to show their faith. It is the month in which the 6 day war took place in 1967, fifty years ago. It was unprovoked by the Jews but at its end, Jerusalem was returned to them, fulfilling scripture.
This September promises to be a blockbuster in terms of God’s authority being revealed again. It is 100 years since the Balfour Declaration, the British mandate to return Israel back the the Jews. It’s 50 years since the war which brought Jerusalem back to the Jews. 50 is significant to God: it’s the Jubilee, when ownership is returned back and debts are lifted.
Personally, I believe something amazing and threatening is about to happen this autumn.
That the most powerful leader in the world is allied with the most powerful leader supernaturally, I find comforting, encouraging and very exciting.
I’m counting the days, marking each day of September as though it is significant, and waiting, waiting for the Feast of Tabernacles and all the LORD may surely do. I don’t know what exactly is going to happen, but it seems to me it will be profound. I can hardly wait, but while I do, I pray, I yearn and I look deeply within to make sure I have nothing against a neighbour.
