We have a fascinating history lesson for you today so stay tuned for thousand years ago a covenant was made that would have an enduring impact throughout history.
I will bless those who bless you and I will cuss him cuss as you and in you shall all the families of the glass welcome to understanding the times radio with Jan Markel radio for the remnant brought to you by Olive tree ministries agent visits with Stephen Briggs of boutique fulfillment switch headquarters out of the UK will learn what John Darby DL Moody, William Blackstone and various US presidents all had in common. They all had a role in the miraculous rebirth of the nation of Israel. Here is today's program and welcome to the program.
I'm so glad you can join me to have a special guest in studio and that's because we are carrying a brand-new product and I'm anxious to get it into your hands I new film title America and the Israel effect. Are there consequences when America puts pressure on Israel compromises for security or makes her give up land into if you've heard my discussions over the years with Bill caning. You know, there are actually terrible consequences that come to any nation when they put that kind of pressure on God's covenant land and people that that affects you and me in monumental ways it affects the people in any nation of the world if their governments are putting pressure on Israel and that puts that nation and people at risk, so I'm going to be playing a number of sound clips today from this new film America and the Israel effect and I've tried to pick some clips that are not seriously compromised on radio is my radio audience lacks the visual capability of seeing them. Now remember, folks, we have a video version of this program where you can see everything we are discussing that and I reference that often you can find that video version on our website. Olive tree views.org and go to radio. You can find that video version on his channel television on YouTube on rumble on Facebook and we really do want some of you who are visual to have that capability of seeing what we're talking about now.
How has America been compromised by US leaders who want to give away land and marginalize Israel and her security who have been the primary perpetrators of this and we have a new administration now in Washington will they bless or curse Israel. I think we know the answer to that. And the answer will directly affect every one of my listeners to this program, one of the producers of the new film is in studio with me.
His name is Stephen Briggs. He is director of operations for how to take the films I want to say more about I take for films as we go into the program here Stephen, welcome to the studio thank you for me Stephen how did you get into a man. I've seen bits and pieces of a number of your presentations. We carry the one I just referred to, how did you get into this was a long story but I'll keep it short for your listeners. I lived in Israel for four years from 2004 to 2000 bytes, and to minimize the length of a story. My grandmother was instrumental in praying for me and my grandfather as well and I felt very clear what I'm supposed to be going to Jerusalem. Jerusalem was normal. My right off, but pride they told me the most up to minimum number of amazing ways.
3 1/2 weeks alt.spoke with my grandmother.
I ended up in Israel us over the brook Woodlawn slumber. Yes I've met Lance years ago I know is passed on while I was in Israel and met the producer both from Jerusalem, the government subsidy, which is the artist film looks looks God's plan and purpose and pulsed rustic pulse present and future destiny of Jerusalem and a new film that he was off the present ball slumber was cool. Blessing consequences whenever ships cook us a coincidence and challenge producers of God's intent is the blessed external to cuss the concrete consequences because that's a wholly negative position to take in the initial instruction with whom he turned to me this was beginning to affect sleep when you revolves as I wanted to come work for me was that just the trite co-mentors and something that I should follow-up a few weeks later Russell him we met he sit on it was I think that I must be in the Lord and here I am, 15 years later, in full, with the film production company making not just one fill right about Genesis 12 but a whole series of films, and this one is the fulfillment of service and folks you can learn much email@example.com had take the for.com I think what I want to do is I want to start with the fact that there were early Christian and of Pioneers is the right word.
We got John Nelson Darby DL Moody William Blackstone CI Scofield and these men played some very important roles. This would have been in the 1800s, almost 200 years ago and just play the clip here of Paul Wilkinson and I appreciate you have Paul Wilkinson in the film again. We talked about Lance Lambert in the film and some others that some folks were recognized, but if we could plate this clip and then I want to come back and talk about, although John Nelson Darby wasn't a minister. He wasn't a clergyman after he left the church of island. He was an itinerant he was among her other half of the past of the hot shot.
So dobby went out into the United States. Firstly, to encourage his fellow brethren, Swiss and French brethren that were out there and priorities in four weeks of travel 2000 miles, but as a tool the United States.
He and his fellow brethren evangelists itinerant's were being invited to conduct what became known as Bible readings taken into homes taken into the churches Baptist Church Presbyterian Church as independent churches to read Scripture on to proclaim in particular, and this is what Montalto Nelson job in the blood. In those days of the Lord during the course of the seven tools of United States John Nelson, men such as the mood focus began to emerge and understanding of restoration is that the purpose this miraculous experience of the story of the Jewish people.
The story of Christians and the story of America is related was really not separate things, but tied together. From 1893 to 1897, premillennialists evangelicals that believed in the Lord's return, the restoration of Jews were coming together to read the words of start of the words on to seek the Lord's guidance. How are they to get the message out to the wider church to sound the midnight cry. Behold, the bridegroom, on these conferences became known as the Niagara conferences and it was the theology, eschatology, dobby's belief in the restoration of Israel, the return of the Lord fired the entire move which gave rise to man like DL Moody, William Blackstone, Cyrus Scofield, and so on and so forth became the focus of restoration is him or that if the return of the Jews to their ancient homeland may have significant meaning and became important that would coarsely be right up to Rev. Blackstone, one of the men here is most profoundly influenced by dobby's theology was a Chicago businessman by the name of William Blackstone, Rev. Blackstone is one of one of the most extraordinary men in the entire story of restoration without Rev. Blackstone's influence is quite possible Israel to refer to Israel's God sundial if you want to know where we are in the chronology of world events.
Keep your eyes upon Israel, Stephen Briggs of this is some early pioneers and William E. Blackstone is so key to all this. He called Israel.
God's timepiece, long time ago and it hasn't changed is Israel still goes timepiece.
It has been throughout history. The Scriptures talk about when we see the restoration of Israel as a nation once again. It tells us that gold is on the move that he's coming back.
His son is returning to take us to be with him and that through was made excites me and here we are living in the generation that the apostles were long just to live here very right so Blackstone was going to influence a US president by the name of Woodrow Wilson, now just a word about Wilson. He was an arch liberal. He did enormous destruction to America, but he was a friend of Israel actually have a presentation where I talk about him he was in favor of a Jewish homeland roughly the time of theater hurts old 1917, 19, 20, America was now a world power. Avery to be moving into the 20s in the 30s here pretty soon. But Woodrow Wilson played a huge role in the early stages of the nation of Israel, absolutely, and the understanding that he sold.
This is something that gold is going to do a right the book he knew what the book said, and he wanted to be a part of that incredible story. Stephen here from the UK which is obvious you have a slight accent click it's just a slight. What I really appreciated.
I love it and Great Britain so important in Israel's formation. We have Gen. Allenby out of Great Britain. They just so many key players that came out of your country and they were instrumental. We go back to 1917, 19, 20, we can take it up even to the 1930s and even the 1940s, but your country when latitudes command to Palestine and your countries paid a price for that. It has Britain's been on a roller coaster, especially in regards the relationship with the Jews.
You can go back as follows. 12 mighty King Edward I kicked or the Jews out of the UK we went into appear that there's not much good came out of that tiny little island for several hundred years and then you had a Mac with all of the Cromwell return to power in the behest of his colleagues he welcome the Jewish people. It would be impossible to sit across Europe back into the UK. That was a catalyst in my estimation for a transformation within British society, which resulted in the wood of gold being already translated into English and but then being taken to the uttermost parts of the offensive.
We have the Jews welcome the Jews being blessed by the country and we have the lure of gold. The gospel of golf being taken so the nations so those two things in my estimation with the catalyst for the expansion of the British Empire. Yet the likes of what it will force the Wesley druggist Whitfield Spurgeon, to name a few who read the Bible and sold before Jesus comes back the restoration of Israel have to happen on the gospel to preach the earth was possibly a those two keys will the catalyst for the restoration is movements across the UK, which ultimately led to the Balfour declaration of 1970 correct teleworker to get more into the 1920s and 30s here eventually and again folks. We carry this new film, give our office a call. You can check the online store and olive tree views downward and to learn a little bit more about Stephen Briggs and the HUD take fulfill Skoda takes the film's.com and plan of the clip here is were going to get into how did this new nation of Israel actually get started again. We already referred to the fact that Great Britain their white paper. The bandages from going into the night Mrs. back when they were fleeing from persecution of the persecutions about to get a whole lot worse in the 1930s by the time the Balfour declaration was published by the British government the United States have become the heavenly, the wealthiest nation on the face of the but arguably the wealthiest and most powerful nation in the world could ever see before the state of Israel became a reality. The world would witness the worst atrocity in human history.
During the 1970s. The dog clouds of war, began to gather in Europe as the Jewish people that began to experience prosecution. Once again, this time under the Nazis Jewish suffering would be on a scale unprecedented in their entire history. December 1941 after an attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor.
America was strolled into the second world war deliberation the Pacific Ocean Southeast Asia from Japanese imperialism. She also sided with Britain to liberate Europe from the grip of Nazism American involvements with saving the Jews was not a meager one wasn't something that they fell over themselves trying to do.
There is a lot of argument about that and you'll get a lot of angry opinions also about Pres. Roosevelt whether or not he was in favor the Jews are against the Jews, whether he knew about the Holocaust or did know about the Holocaust. To the best of our knowledge, they knew about the Holocaust.
He just didn't want to do anything they have done things for example like bomb the rail lines. Perhaps my father was in the sub- camp of Auschwitz, the war refugee Board was created by two Christians who said the Jews are being murdered Sit idly by, they demanded that there be action demanded that things being brought to attention.
They could see the seventh Air Force going over what were they doing there were bombing blessed, they knew were Auschwitz, they could see that they never went there once by accident. There was water to place it happened on load a couple bomblets to the other got lost when of course, but to say the United States was actively trying to save Jews during World War II and promising not he were trying to win the war and the argument there is win the war will save the Jews, Stephen. We had two waves of persecution, we can go back to the 1880s and we had the fiddler on the roof era back then. I actually have some family members who fled Russia about that time came to America. That was one huge wave of persecution 1880s and some of those Jews were actually going to Palestine. At that time.
But then we have this wave of persecution in the 30s and the 40s and as we just heard in that clip. We had a US Pres. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who did absolutely nothing to intervene and save European jewelry. Can you understand that all I think it's horrendous.
What took place and the fact that there was an opportunity to limit the amount of Jewish people, but ended up in the gas chambers and they didn't carry that out. What cannot they put you on a commission close with the Almighty.
What Roosevelt did his role in this, we can say things resulted America did get involved in the sacrum or it would've been a different story and potentially many more lives would be lost, but there was an opportunity to limit loss while he says will win the war and save the Jews.
That way I can sort of understand that but there could have been as the little clip says actual activity they could have bombed the tracks going into the camps and then you can't get the human cargo into the camps. If you bomb the railroad tracks easy to do and they even saw American planes going over the camps, but they did nothing in the British of course were mentioned as well. Same thing we could have Frank allowed Jewish people who are slamming this and horrendous stories and Jews arriving in Palestine and the British sending them away in the main prison camps in Mauritius and Cyprus. Unbelievable that these ones have suffered persecution of being incarcerated and then the British incarcerate Megan exactly here listening to understanding the times radio I'm Jan Markel I have in studio with me. Stephen Briggs from HUD take the film's because were carrying the new product that he is very instrumental in creating and that is America and the Israel effects.
I am so enthused about this. I've watched it several times in the history is fascinating. If any of you love history. You will love goes all the way back we open here with comments about some of the early pioneers such as Darby and Willie Mae Blackstone and Schofield and DL Moody and how they set the stage for the rebirth of Israel with their theology, they said, Jesus is coming back but but has to happen before Jesus can come back is a state of Israel has to be reborn so that was the message they were preaching back in the mid to late 1800s to play another clip Stephen Briggs because were moving into the era of Harry Truman, an amazing man I worked with Holocaust survivor as my audience knows Anita Dittman for a number of years. I wrote her book trapped in Hitler's hell. So grateful for Pres. Truman who and 47, 48 came along. Thanks to the passing of Pres. Roosevelt and Harry Truman. Fascinating story.
Let's play this clip and come back and talk about in the United States, Britain came under increasing condemnation for its inhumanity towards the Jewish survivors of the Holocaust money will calling for the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine, but not everyone, especially at the top will the American State Department was against it.
The American military against everybody seemed to be against it and then you had the presidents while we know in all likelihood that Pres. Roosevelt would've been against it, but he wasn't presidency of diet and the baton was then passed to Pres. Truman. One of the first documents on his desk is what we do about the question of Palestine was right there to and 1/2 thousand years. The other Jewish people had been exiled in Babylon in the first year out of his way. The Persian king silence to clean the imposed exile for the Jews be allowed to act that apartments that to rebuild the temple and reestablish the national Bible tells us that, what does the idea the American president had a Truman was a southern but clearly understood biblical prophecy, he was faced with a similar situation, aside with some being what would be a medicament, Pres.'s Bible reader on his own independently how religious man was Truman that could be open for a lot of debate was also a politician with expert Barry that part not to get around.
He knew the story and the role of Cyrus and when the problems were coming up to 1947. What do we do for the establishment of a partition between an Arab state and a Jewish state. What were the promises of the Balfour declaration, he considered that the promises that the British had made. We have to be simple to because already in 1947, he decided that America felt supposed the idea of the politician promises that we make all people. Certainly fulfilling the promises made in the World War I. We established all these Arab states couldn't the Jews us have a tiny tiny piece of land that they would call their own decision finally came down to was his and his alone.
Remember he was bitterly threatened by everybody and he said I have to do what is right. I have to do, not only what is moral. It was just have to do what is proper and I have to do because he knew Silas 5 1/2 month off to this historic United Nations votes in November 1947 I state of Israel was to class XIVth of May 19 May 1948. Mingle proclaims a great set of present immediately after that the medical I think within 10 or 15 minutes time, she recognized his post, thanks for pulling medical overcome this.
The commission was to provide the provision, Stephen Briggs, Harry Truman wanted to be like King Cyrus. You have King Cyrus, who was an unredeemed man who helped the Jews which relax. Israel is recorded in the Scriptures is touched on is rare is amazing. Response ability. Cyrus this individual from another kingdom chooses and decrees that the Jewish people, Tom and that was the most laden Harry Truman identified himself as a multi-diagram I received it and him recognize that this was something of such profound significance, but he saw that he had a key part to play in God's redemptive plan to publish why because he wrote the book. He understood the book he read it as a child and have this tremendous opportunity before him to see the fulfillment of another aspect of God's prophetic word. Sadly, we get the independent nation of Israel. 4748 US ways in 10 minutes. United Nations but then all heck breaks loose in Israel because the Arab nations are not good stand for this.
So they're going to invade.
You might've said to me, the Muslims are never going to stand for Jewish takeover of what was Muslim land. Obviously it's God's plan. But Muslims have been occupying it in the Turkish Empire and it is just so amazing that again he wanted to be Cyrus, but he was the key player again, Roosevelt passed on. This man stepped in and he was not going to leave the Jews. Not only that, but then he recognized that they were in displaced persons camp after the war and he can understand that either. He brought many of them to America. Absolutely one of tremendous testimony is of the kind of responsibility that leaders in this day and age have towards those who have suffered persecution and difficulty in this transformation really made this was such a significant moment in Scripture Isaiah 66 books about, and they should be borne in that I am, people come forth order once and he was an eyewitness to God's word. As we mentioned, this is a signpost. This is a sundial. This tells us the reason that we've entered into a new phase of God's redemptive plan and story that began in the Ghana freedom has worked its way through because of a promise made to Abraham in Genesis 12 three I will bless those who bless you and him who curses you I will cuss and in you should all the families of the earth be blessed and we are carrying this new product called America and the Israel effect and it is produced by had take for films HATIK VA H films.com Stephen Briggs is the director of operations there. Stephen, how many people aren't working for had take fell where very small in space abuse freelances on then a full time involved with the exec to produce this film.
This is number four in the series in a film school blessing coastal coincidence, the previous one looks at the British Cyrus nation you try. And this is the one that's Carl, and John is going to take no exactly we are carrying and there are many many more. They share part of the series of folks are keeping it simple and were carrying the one America and the Israel effect and you've heard me on this program for years and I've talked with former White House correspondent Bill Kane eight. In his book, blessing or cursing and the consequences of dividing Israel eye to eye facing the consequences of dividing Israel sell this is right in line with what Bill has been teaching for over 20 years. In this case, you can visually and graphically see what were talking about because it is a DVD that we are carrying to what I'd like to do.
Stephen is what I get back from a short timeout here looking to move into a time in history for the nation of Israel, which I think everything from 1947, 48 on is absolutely remarkable. But when we get to the 1973 war and the role Richard Nixon played. I think the audience is going to be fascinated by it because Nixon was a conflicted man.
He was known for anti-Semitism and yet he saved the country in word explain why when we get back. You don't even remember the 1973 Yom Kippur war.
I happen to be vacationing and was coming back in town, turn the car radio line am hearing about this and I can fully understand it all back then but appearing about a war in Israel. They had been victorious in the Six-Day War of June 67. Not can be so victorious in 1973 correct but scraggly were losing badly to the point where those within the White House and the senior leadership in this country so this is a tremendous opportunity to leverage the circumstances in the Middle East and sits on things for Americans, then the perceived best interest that Richard Nixon is going to step in and step up to the plate were to talk about it as soon as we get back again. America and the Israel effect and it's in my online store give my office a call get on our newsletter lists.

God's will have the lost John Markel and Stephen Briggs continue and conclude their fascinating discussion. Does history really prove the Genesis 12 three blessing and cursing. Verse fomite it applied to the current US administration has God actually orchestrated history so that nations will come alongside Israel that she might blossom and prosper and be a blessing to the world and that this program features so many film clips, watch our radio program on our website under radio and complete archives on his channel on our YouTube channel on rumble or on light source. He wants you to enjoy this video version of the program we prepare it says very plainly of the Bible about the blessing and a curse. If you don't want to read the Bible or you look at it as a story invented by somebody can believe whatever you want. The problem is that it's recurred throughout history over and over and over again that every country that it turns on the Jews to try and destroy us. Try and thwart God's will of the role that the Jewish people have in the destiny of future somehow it always turns of the study of any people that are proposed, Israel and the Jews historically is enough to alert you when the Lord said when you touch them.
You touch the old old graphic expression. The apple of my eye literally means us like your sticking your finger in my what you're talking about. The Babylonians were to pick on the Romans you want to pick on Spanish during the acquisitions you want to pick on whoever you wish at some point you stop and say, are these all coincidences United States was blessed with something. It's extraordinary like to be an optimist and say that it's all going to be good going forward.
But I am concerned about both the theological trends in the United States and also some of the political political trends that are not put what's going on as far as pressure on his body. The land what's going to happen with Israel. Now we have a changing political environment which is really serious and were not certain that the moral compass of the United States is the same anymore. Welcome back. I'm spending the hour with filmmaker Stephen Briggs had teak for films. Here's where we started by half an hour ago and we talked about some early Christian pioneers. We talked about the influence of William E.
Blackstone in his book Jesus is coming. This is back in the 1870s, 80s and actually about 25 million books sold Jesus coming in. Blackstone was saying back then look the Jews have to come back to their land. Darby and Blackstone and others influenced so many in the church in the late 1800s and then we morphed into the 1900s. In our discussion and we saw 1917 the Balfour declaration we sell theater hurt so come along. We saw the efforts of Great Britain to both help and hinder the Jews and then of course the Holocaust and then the role of Frank Delano Roosevelt and ultimately Harry Truman. This is just a quick overview of things that are in the film America and the Israel effect which we are carrying Stephen Briggs is director of operations for had teak for films in his in studio with me. Stephen where to begin with what happened in the early 1970s, America was going through some tough times. Economic wise and we had some rough presidencies about that time but Richard Nixon came along in the Yom Kippur war, let's talk about that war for just a minute or two. First of all, Israel was very prepared for her 1967 Six-Day War literally one in six days of miraculous intervention. What happened in 1973, 73, was a different story him to sunrise your motor pools at times, the most holy day in the Jewish calendar that they have a torment of covering and they were attacked but they were in a situation where they were losing badly and they needed reinforcements they needed weaponry donated the tools necessary to not lose this battle as we look in the film we look at what happened, but you have this Pres. Nixon at the helm, who is known to be an NCC might tease him really a mystery and make more in a lot of ways, but there was a key and the key to this whole story is the fact that he had parents praying than the point that he was told.
One day in the future you will have an opportunity to do something special for the Jewish people don't miss that opportunity. Whatever.
That's what that was said about Simon. I don't know the exact words that was something that came back to him at this crucial moment in history the will of my air was going to make a middle of the night appeal to him. Let's just play click here. All these clips folks there from the film America and the Israel effect their very very educational because the history therapy are covering.
It's a lot of years.
We started about the early 1800s, and now her up until 1973 that would be another American president would make a dramatic intervention on Israel's Bohol was the only President of the United States to have resigned from office. He was seen by many as something of a Jekyll and Hyde character and he was reputed to have been anti-Semites. Richard Nixon was at the summit. He had a conflicted background very conflicted background on one side is a said he had this anti-Semitism on the other side. He had a there's a story they tell about Pres. Nixon that his mother told him when he was a little child that someday he will be in a position to do something extraordinary for the Jews assault and said that she hoped that when he was in that position he will do that any mother telling the child that the story of a fairytale this or that Mr. Nixon was an extraordinary physician. He did have Jews as part of his cabinet, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger German origin served with the American Armed Forces was the Secretary of State as a security advisor is also Jewish, and the question was how much would you was a well we could argue that Stephen Henry Kissinger probably self hating Jew. Apparently, Richard Nixon's mother said, as this clip indicated. Someday you'll be in a position to help Israel and you do, and boy did that come back to his memory.
Absolutely the power of prime parent has the power of the words that we as the older generation says the young generation. I can bring life or death to a situation and those words, whatever that was. That was actually said, coolest, atoning in the history of the whole Middle East absolutely, and the outworking of America as well. By implication, is an amazing, amazing responsibility, the words that we speak and who we tell what we tell to Israel was literally going to run out of supplies to skin are not airplane, she's gonna run out of tanks is gonna run out of all sorts of weaponry again this is October 1973 there proud of themselves for their Six-Day War victory, 1967.
For some reason Golda my air not prepared in 1973 you have any insight on this member expecting very simply to oversee one head over hills.
I could not possibly think they were comfortable about time depends of course this happens and there was a knock on effects as well. Across Africa because the African Union instructed the member states 20 through the 28th of several ties with Israel as a result, in Israel have been involved in Africa possible. That's what the next films were about our initial effect and is looking that Said What Takes Pl. in Israel affects the nations around it. That's what political hotels that I can imagine how conflicted Nixon must've been in his mind because he's on the record of being anti-Semitic. And then he's gotten his Henry Kissinger who saying no no were not going to get involved were not going to help Israel and Nixon turns around and says what ever it takes. This is based on his conversation with Golda my air go above and beyond to help Israel. This coming from our Jew hater yes and he must've seen the geopolitics he must act within this unrecognizable. Actually, this we can use to benefit our benefit within.
That's of course we sold the whole Arab while turning to depend on the US, and particularly Egypt is Egypt was promised all sorts of support moving forward as a result of this timing of this event, which resulted in American influence in Egypt and into the oil wells of the Arab while being something that was channeled to them. It's fun. The whole region from Russian control really ensue. American control and we have to go back a bit further to recognize that because Russia voted for the re-creation of the state of Israel, or if the proxies voted that way as well and I anticipated because the only fathers of Israel was socialist in their out in the correct they thought that they would help the socialism outpost in the Middle East and that was of MP strategic engineering alderman. So you see these geopolitics playing out on is not new to us Russia America who host strategic interest China as well, and that would seen it recently with the withdrawal from Afghanistan, Russia and China have swept in taking control of that region as well. These geopolitics and not isolated. One thing is done over here. As a consequence the other side of the world. Israel was losing weight will not prepared there would be a war because of those looks reasonable that diamond and that some of our generalists thought that the AC out of the question, is that the unwary World Cup bus surprised only of people in the beginning of the war was 80. Egypt and Syria attacked Israel in the holiest and most excellent day of the biblical calendar, Yom Kippur on the day of atonement. Israel was losing its aircraft within the first matter of days. 49 of its aircraft were destroyed help for a little country to lose most Of your aircraft is serious they were losing their tanks in the battles they didn't have supplies to fight with good luck continued because just we didn't have any almond wills.
Many people will spend inveigling those. Thanks and dampness, but nevertheless what we need the will just the ammunition in all will as Moshe Diane told Golda Meir was prime minister at the time the third Temple might fall the third Temple was the state of Israel.
It could all panicked calls went into the American government for help. Panicked, Henry Kissinger held them back.
Kissinger's reported response was let them bleed a little Golda might be running the White House at 3 o'clock in the morning and spoke directly to Pres. Nixon told him that Israel was in very real danger of losing the war, particularly as the Russians were rearming the cerium Egyptians, Richard Nixon's mother was a Quaker and a real Bible believing Christian. It is reported that as the Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir pleaded with him for help on the telephone. The words of his mother's prophetic utterance. When he was the child that he would one day be in a position to help Israel came back home after the phone call ended the president some is Pres. Nixon was livid the bottom line he told Kissinger he told the Secretary of Defense Schlesinger says do whatever you have to do send them whatever they need to get this stuff in the air and get the tanks the planes they weaponry headed over there now Kissinger question that his answer was, with an expletive or two to Kissinger basically get it done and then whatever you need double the Americans came in the very very meaningful way.
Many many many flights a day. They sent us there without asking too many questions. So Stephen brings Richard Nixon saved Israel in 1973. Shortly after that he was going to resign.
How does that fit into your blessing and curse scenario you have in other areas of his character. He was an anti-seam. He was this involvement here my own perspective. One is if the seat of Messiah is finished as the seat of the Jewish people. If the nation is removed from the equation, then God's word is an accurate and if we can't depend on God fulfilling his worth and why would he fulfill his word with saving and redeeming you college used another individual a Gentile to be involved in ensuring that Hispanic puppets will be outworked, but yes we have tough consistent taxa not be double minded and Nixon did do a lot of things that were anti-Semitic. So in this instance, it was good but goes looking for us to be consistent with our advice and consistent with what we do. Genesis 12 three is that operation so you are saying that his anti-Semitism could have taken him down but couldn't because you reap what you saw exactly that was a very, very interesting time in American history Israel history. I want to bring it up little more to modern times. We've had George H. W. Bush dividing the land back in the early 1990s we had Bill Clinton doing all sorts of Camp David meetings and talking about dividing the land we had George W of the he was often called Mr. Palestine. He was so obsessed with Palestinian state didn't end well and then came a very unique and interesting man, Donald J. Trump.
All these other presidents said that they would restore the US embassy to Jerusalem talk to me a little bit about Pres. Trump. From your perspective here from the UK.
What did you think of this businessman becoming president United States and really becoming Israel's best friend in her 73 year history of the whole world was shocked when he and the White House, this man who has changed his stripes and a number of different ways. But what he did in this instance, with regard to Israel. He carried out what other presidents happens yes exactly on that and of itself is huge. He was a man of character.
Everything that he said he would do upon entering the White House.
He did there were a lot of people didn't like that but that was the reality in this devotion, Joel three, which is crucial in our understanding of this Joe three of us wanted to sis fall.
Behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring back the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem so know if, when, in other words, it's going to happen. I will gather all nations and bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and I will execute judgment upon them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and people often overlook the suspect and they have halted my thank you. Finding that up in this land. This question this dispute over physical territory is something that is intricately intertwined with the promise that God made to Abraham X reiterated 56 times in Psalm 105.
Both sites were 11 on this to do with confidence so the conflict over the lands and over the real estate. If we can put in those times actually is not about Israel is not even about Jerusalem. It goes even now it goes to the old city of Jerusalem goes even narrower than that goes to the temple mount goes even narrower than that. The actual Temple to the place where an offering was made with Abraham offering his son on the ram being found in the thicket, the place where God chose to put his name that's the center of the conflict and that's why over the nations want to divide the land. It's because Gault is a God who has put his name that and it's to do with his inheritance is to do with his plan and purpose being outworked and that's why the nation's eyes. If I can set like this, John. You are in micro with your neighbors. Testimony of the reality that there is a God in heaven.
In the same way macro Israel even in how unredeemed the state is a testimony to order the nations that there is a God in heaven that I have to answer for their actions.
John the micro Israel the Mac Pro and the nations hate that reminder because it turns they have to answer for their actions.
Pres. Donald Trump was involved in some deals as a matter fact, one was called the deal of the century. This is well over a year ago and then came the Abraham accords later in the pitting towards the end of his term.
The Abraham accords and deal of the century that took place at San Remo in 1920. We really don't need Abraham accords and deal of the century.
What are your thoughts when you heard Pres. Trump negotiating and suggesting some land could be given up. That was his intent wasn't to put looking again at the outworking of that this idea of land for peace has never worked look at the plant from Gaza 2005 and the ramifications and Hurricane Katrina sweeping through. It was a direct correlation is not mere coincidence. There's more to I was living in Israel at the time when I'm about to place a look at how causes become a hotbed for from sampling hasn't done anything about bringing peace of this land question is important is important because it's to do with God's covenant that he made with Abraham and his descendents, and it's actually for the monitoring the blessing of the Middle East.
But as for the blessing of the whole wall trumps a piece accords that he sought to do in bringing these nations together at some points we going to see the highway from Egypt to Assyria, and it talks about Egypt.
My people Assyria the work of my hands and Israel mine harassment inheritance statement each of my people blows my mind because you think back to the Exodus from Egypt.
Yes, God says I want nothing to do with you, and yet in Isaiah 19.
Gault describes Egypt as his people. What incredible timing about of his redemptive plan and purpose. He's going to coolant himself. So is roping back in the land is a blessing for the whole world and God used Trump to recognize internationally.
Jerusalem is the son of the Jewish people yes and I was a remarkable day. When that happened, Jerusalem became yes it capital and not Tel Aviv but just that's recognition didn't change Jerusalem status. Jerusalem was capital and Gonzales over thousands of years.
Absolutely. But in the eyes of the nations America recognizing Jerusalem is been the cops are moving their embassy from Tel Aviv to this disputed little sissy will Jerusalem reinforced Israel's rights to that being that central capital and a number of other nations followed suit and hopefully my nation in the UK will finance the many others because Jerusalem is Jerusalem. Here listening to understand the times radio I'm Jan Markel and in studio with me is Stephen Briggs from HUD take five for 70 for film.com.
So now we have a rather new administration Stephen Joe Biden, and they want to divide Jerusalem and are talking about this happening in East Jerusalem in this happening in West Jerusalem and you and I know there's only one Jerusalem. So immediately they're getting off on the wrong foot. It used to be, and you may not be quite as familiar with American politics as I am used to be that leftists loved Israel that is not the case anymore. I'm not sure there is leftists in Washington that cares about the nation of Israel. They want to divide Mr. Biden wants to divide tell me what you see in this new administration that came in here. January 20 tell me what you say these sorts under every declaration of Trump price of the such a hatred and the hostility for this businessman that wasn't part of the establishment came in and actually did things that benefited America and so we have a situation where the pendulum of American politics and swung the other way For this window. What will happen in 2020 full Americans need to be praying that God would step in and put in a man or woman in place that will align themselves once again with what God intends for this great nation.
Subdued but in Zechariah 12 it says I will make Jerusalem a couple of reeling unsold peoples.
This is best to upon Judah or so shall it be in the siege against Jerusalem and this is a mystery, it shall come to policy in that day that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome starters for all peoples old above themselves with.
It shall be so wounded and all the nations of the shall be gathered together against it. Now that's a fascinating fuss because it tells the every nation's gonna come against this place Jerusalem why and a burdensome storm what it is and she is saying if you try and mess with Jerusalem.
You gonna put you back out your list and days are going to be our and so we have a situation where it's almost an obsession of the nations of them as more UN resolutions. Paul seconds is round and that's happening in the spirit right now. Why is there such a conflict.
I'll tell you very simply, is because there is a God in heaven who is fulfilling his will on the nations hate that reality because it reminds them that they have to answer for their actions and in the case of Biden on this administration is no different. God's word will help the lost word. You are right and I am deeply concerned because every one of my listeners is going to be affected.
And that's in the blessing and the cursing angle that we talked about now for almost an hour is that the blessing in the cursing.
It comes upon a nation, and upon a people and good people are harmed because of the policies in Washington. Good people in Desoto and Wisconsin are harmed.
Because of this, and I'm very concerned because I see the hostility on the part of the left when it comes to everything it has to do with the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. We heard a few minutes ago Henry Kissinger and Jew himself. He said to Richard Nixon let Israel bleed a little bit.
We don't care. Let's just make them suffer little bit of this mentality. It can be terrifying in the natural heavy say God's got a purpose for it all and everything is playing out exactly as he said it would, as you have outlined here in Scripture verse and people Gault gives a nation that leadership is a yeah and that's true. Sadly, I think that that may sum up just about everything here in 2021 is we've gotten. We deserve at this present moment, but it doesn't have to stay that way. The key, as with all of the turning points in history as if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves seek my face time from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their land. But that verse into clinical seven blissful team is often taken out of context.
You need to read around in verse 13 what it says there as well. We have a situation now where if this doesn't drive us to our knees and I set up my own nations. While the leadership of our nation needs to be changed because if we don't see the transformation. We Dennis is a chest crying out to go reminding a looseness that in one Timothy two, it talks about first of old. We pray for kings and rulers in authority why that we may need a tranquil and quiet life in the cells may be saved if you really love this nation and we should be praying for the leadership of this nation and talking Stephen Briggs for the hour and I am down to about three minutes here, but the Bible tells us in Psalm 122 six to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Now we can and I want to expound on that, but we can take that in a couple of different ways. I'll be praying for the Prince of peace to come back and rule and reign out of Jerusalem probably but is there a greater meaning for someone. 22.
Six then what the average listener might be expecting just this whole note that we lose in language so shalom in Hebrew, which is the web piece that doesn't mean absence of war.
It does aiming a removal of conflict.
It means wholeness and completeness. I understand there is greatly expanded. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. If we say pray for the wholeness. Pray for the complete mystery smoke does that really make sense what it does when you realize that Jerusalem is the center of God's plan and purpose of pray for the eternal purpose of God to be fulfilled. Now let me go to the very last verse in that passage. The last verse in that passage says for my brothers and my companion site. I will now say, peace be within you. For the sake of the house of the Lord, how goal I will seek you'll that's Israel's good. So if we left the church.
If we left the things that the Lord is doing in the body and the land in America than it's incumbent upon us. It's our responsibility is to be involved in praying for the paternal pups of gold, which is centered in Jerusalem to be outworked. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. They shall prosper that love you that what prosperity there was true prosperity is knowing more of Christ. Thank you.
