Living Church of God: News & Prophecy

Israel withdraws all ambassadors.

In a drastic political move, all Israeli foreign ambassadors and consuls general were ordered back to Israel for a first-ever meeting hosted by Israel’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister. “The idea [of the meeting] is to facilitate direct dialogue with the country’s leaders, mutual updates on major diplomatic issues, and a discussion of action plans to deal with the challenges awaiting Israel in the international arena in the coming year, including the Iranian threat.”

This meeting comes on the heels of a recently released report by the UN Human Rights Council for Gaza, which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called “a threat to Israel” (www.EUTimes.net, December 26, 2009). World events are speeding up and are perceived by Israel as a threat to its existence.  Will “human rights” be used as a lever to allow the EU and other nations to control Israel?

Israel is currently run primarily by Jews—descendants of the ancient Israelite tribe of Judah. Yet God prophesied that, at the time of the end, just prior to the return of Christ, Jerusalem would once again be occupied by “Gentile” nations and surrounded by armies (Luke 21:24; Revelation 11:2).  That time is coming, and events are pointing in a direction that will fulfill Bible prophecies recorded more than 2,000 years ago!
