As i woke up yesterday morning, I had a short dream where I heard the phrase,
“Jesus is at the door!”
This startled me and as i thought about it, i realized that God was encouraging us not to give up looking at the signs He has sent since they confirm we are very near the return of Jesus. In Matthew 24:33, just after Jesus had just told his disciples the signs that would precede his return, he said,
“So also you, when you see all these things, know that he is near, right at the door.” (New English Translation)
Some of the signs he had talked about involve the sun, moon and stars in the parallel account of this lecture to the disciples in Luke 21:25. We have discussed many of these in previous posts on this blog. However as I continued meditating on this dream, God reminded me of an amazing prophetic word that was given several years back and has so far been fulfilled accurately, also confirming the time we are in. In April of 2008, Wendy Alec a co-founder of God Television gave the following prophetic word about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel (Formatting is as originally posted on the God TV website);
For My son – I have heard your voice in past years lifted up to me in the midnight hour and even in the months and the years past – when you were passed over in office, My son – KNOW THIS – THAT YOU WERE NOT PASSED OVER BY ME. For I, the Lord God of Israel – I, the sovereign God of the earth have raised you up – BY MY OWN HAND. I have raised you up and I saw the struggle in your soul – and I heard you say – it should be me – this is my role – this is my place. But I have guarded YOU JEALOUSLY, says the Lord, even as I have guarded ISRAEL JEALOUSLY. And I have kept you, son – For a SET time and a season – for the latter days For like King David I have taken you even from the sheepfold and I have raised you up for such a time and for such a PLACE and for such a SEASON I have raised you up says the Lord. For I have not raised you up not for your own sake My son – But FOR JERUSALEM’S SAKE I have raised YOU UP and as you have watched the political powers shift and sway – know this My child – I have chosen you by my own hand – NOT for the seasons of the PAST or the seasons of the immediate present but with deliberate intent I have kept you for THIS NEXT and this SOON COMING SEASON and I tell you, My son – THIS SEASON COMES SWIFTLY TOWARDS YOU I tell you, My son – this season descends SWIFTLY upon you and even as ISRAEL was born even in a day. The nation was born even in a day so, like ISRAEL the nation you are hewn from, EVEN IN A DAY – I SHALL SET YOU IN OFFICE – IN THE HIGH PLACE AS RULER OF ISRAEL YOU SHALL BE. For NOT ONE TERM says the Lord. Not TWO terms says the Lord. But THREE terms – says the Lord
For NOT ONE TERM says the Lord. Not TWO terms says the Lord. But THREE terms. And then the time of the END. And you shall see and marvel. And you shall see that I, the Lord GOD of Israel and NO MAN has done this thing. Not by your own strength or the strength of others, says the Lord. BUT BY MY HAND. I shall set you on high. And I shall set you as a WATCHMAN over my Land as a WATCHMAN over the WALLS of Jerusalem and even like King David YOUR REIGN shall be. And it shall be JUST IN TIME says the Lord. JUST IN TIME
For your voice shall cry out against the plans of MEN. And your voice shall cry out against the strategies of the enemy. And it shall be different than before. For your voice shall roar in the White House and your voice shall roar in the United Nations and your voice shall resound even to the European Union. And you shall say NO – It is ENOUGH NO – Jerusalem is OURS. Jerusalem is the Lord our God’s.
For I tell you, child – you shall yet see things in your day that will make grown men tremble. Remember My son – that I HAVE SET YOU – to water and nurture and GUARD my people ISRAEL and GUIDE My people ISRAEL. I HAVE JEALOUSLY GUARDED YOU TO RELEASE YOU TO REIGN OVER Israel in the time of the END. Be FAITHFUL My son. Cry out to Me for WISDOM in these coming days, My son. Honour My name among your people Israel, My son. And WHEN YOU SEE these things come to pass – REMEMBER ME says the Lord.
And I will set a flame of fire around you in your days of office And many, many, many will be the sinister schemes laid in secret against you But I shall PROTECT YOU says the Lord And you shall know my covering. You shall know my protection and you shall know My grace. And even in your personal life says the Lord, I am about to pour a great oil and balm upon you – And you shall know PEACE and REST on all sides of your personal life, My son. And it shall be My blessing upon you.
While the nations rage against you and I shall hook out the nations even those of the West that the world shall see their true intents and their evil schemes against My Land. And no longer shall their intentions remain hidden from view, says the Lord For I am roused with a holy anger against them and as you speak I SHALL SPEAK. And as you roar I SHALL SURELY ROAR FROM ZION. For you are My chosen vessel for Israel in these last and coming days.
Firstly, this prophecy was made in 2008 before Prime Minister Netanyahu was re-elected in 2009. Netanyahu had previously been Prime Minister from 1996 to 1999. He became Prime Minister again in 2009, was re-elected again in 2013 and is now serving his third consecutive term which began in 2015. Netanyahu is the only Prime Minister in Israel’s history to have been elected three times in a row. This has fulfilled what God said about him coming back to power and staying for a third term!
Secondly, PM Netanyahu so strongly opposed the Iran Nuclear deal that he flew to the United States against Obama’s will and made a historic speech to congress voicing his concerns about the deal in 2015. Some of the concerns the Israeli PM raised were that Iran’s nuclear infrastructure would be largely left intact and so to him the deal achieved no beneficial purpose other than to reward Iran with lifting of sanctions and still be able to potentially achieve a nuclear bomb. US President Obama refused to meet the Israeli PM on this visit. Later, the United Nations passed resolution 2334 in December 2016 which declared all Israeli settlements in the West Bank to be illegal. It stated that the Security Council recognized the 1967 ceasefire lines as the border between Israel and “Palestine”, and it officially gave East Jerusalem to the Palestinians. The United States did not block this action and was in fact accused by PM Netanyahu of actively colluding on the resolution. The Israeli PM said,
“we have no doubt that the Obama administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed.”
These incidents fulfilled the part of the prophecy which said,
For your voice shall cry out against the plans of MEN. And your voice shall cry out against the strategies of the enemy.
Thirdly and most amazingly, the prophecy emphasized Jerusalem several times and the role Netanyahu would play at defending its legitimacy as the capital of Israel. At an event in 2015, Netanyahu made the following statements,
“On this special day it is clear to us that a divided Jerusalem is a memory. The future belongs to the complete Jerusalem that shall never again be divided”
“Jerusalem was only ever the capital of the Jewish people, not of any other people”
The city has become the central theme of the news about the Middle East in the last few weeks after US President Trump declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in December 2017. This made the US the first nation to do so since Israel became a nation in 1948. In the prophecy, God said
And you shall say NO – It is ENOUGH NO – Jerusalem is OURS.
Donald Trump amplified PM Netanyahu’s view of Jerusalem. Again all this was in fulfillment of this word. The UN Security council tried to pass a resolution to condemn Trumps declaration which would have forced him to retract his statement but the US used its veto power to block this action. 128 nations which included most the western powers then voted against the declaration at the UN General Assembly, with only 9 supporting the US declaration and 35 abstaining from the vote. Though this was non-binding but largely symbolic, it showed how many of the worlds nations were against Israel and the US on this issue. This seemed to fulfill the part of the prophecy that said
While the nations rage against you and I shall hook out the nations even those of the West that the world shall see their true intents and their evil schemes against My Land. And no longer shall their intentions remain hidden from view….
Lastly, the part of the prophecy that stands out to me is where it says
For NOT ONE TERM says the Lord. Not TWO terms says the Lord. But THREE terms. And then the time of the END.
PM Netanyahu is currently in his third term since this word was given and it indicated that the time of the End would follow. If this prophecy has so far stood the test of time with stunning fulfillment then it only confirms further the signs that God has been sending in the past few years pointing to the return of Jesus very soon. PM Netanyahu’s term will be done by November 2019.
So what I heard yesterday morning that Jesus is at the door is not a fantasy but a hard fact. God was reminding me of this important word that was given many years back that is coming to pass in front of our eyes. In a previous post I also shared how God revealed the connection between his act of closing the door of Noah’s ark to the time we are living in. This is to encourage us not to give up but use this opportunity of Gods grace to continue serving God with all our hearts and reaching out to the lost so that they will get to know God and escape the coming tribulation. Also Pray for the none saved and for Israel, especially their Prime Minister who has been chosen by God to play an important role in this season.
