Israel 265: One of Israel’s most respected rabbis, Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, has released a statement on the status of America as a waning world superpower and a message of hope for Israel to fill the void
THE BIG CRISIS THAT IS CURRENTLY HAPPENING IN AMERICA
Regarding the outcome of the US elections, Rabbi Eliyahu explains that the schism is deeper than last week’s incident on Capitol Hill saying: “The big crisis that is currently happening in America didn’t start with the storming of Capitol Hill. It started with the Democratic party’s’ lack of confidence in Trump’s presidency expressed in fiery protests across the United States, and his being labeled in every possible derogatory manner.”
The rabbi added that the lack of Republican trust in America’s election process also contributes to the crisis.
“With tremendous sorrow we can recall this event as part of the process of the US descending from the stage of world history. It’s a sad moment, but it’s happening.” Read More
Opinion: Israel’s rabbi knows from Jewish history that a nation’s sins can lead to grave consequences.
In the 11th century BC, the Jews demanded a king like other nations. God let them have what they wanted. King Saul was commanded to kill the Amalekites men, women, children and animals (1 Samuel 15:1-2). Saul disobeyed and Amalek’s bloodline showed up in Persia (Iran) 700 years later in a man named Haman. Haman plotted to kill all the Jews of Persia (Esther 3:8-11).
Israel disobeyed God when He told them to let the land rest on the 7th year, even promising a triple harvest in the 6th year. In 586 BC, the Jews were marched off to Babylon to begin 70 years of captivity. The land rested 70 Sabbaths as God had commanded.
In 70 AD, the Jewish people were punished for similar reasons that are happening in America today. Jewish society in Jerusalem had become bitterly divided over religion and politics.
“Naturally, the Temple played a significant role in the struggle. It was the symbol of God’s presence amongst the Jewish people and so a monopoly on the Temple was tantamount to a monopoly on the word of God.
The tension between the factions reached a peak in the period after the death of Herod in 4 BC. Eventually, in 66 CE the passion and the tension exploded into an all out rebellion against Rome. The Great Revolt which lasted from 66 to 73 AD had disastrous consequences. It brought about the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE and the total destruction of the upper city of Jerusalem which burned for over a month.” (source)
Rabbi Eliyahu’s warning about the United States is a clear reminder that when a nation turns from God, the consequences can be disastrous.
Bible prophecy has no lone superpower in the last days.
