A “Burdensome Stone” – To a Sinful World
United States President, Donald Trump, is contributing to the fulfillment of the “burdensome stone” prophecy in Zechariah 12:3, having made good his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the historic capital of Israel. In announcing this, President Trump has countered the Islamic revisionist claims (falsifying history) and made a clear stand against Islamic political attempts to gain global dominance.
A “Burdensome Stone” – To Oppressors
The globalists have pinned their hopes on using so-called political correctness – forbidding criticism – to give Islam dominance in western nations. However, Trump’s declaration has exposed the struggle. A clear clash of cultures will lead to the prophesied war between nations during the Tribulation.
A “Burdensome Stone” – To Falsifiers of History
The truth is that Islam’s attitude to Jerusalem is at best, inconsistent. Jerusalem only grows in importance when the faiths that Islam believes it has superseded – Judaism and Christianity – are concerned. Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Koran.
When there was a desire for a share of the pilgrimage traffic to and from Medina and Mecca, attempts were made to falsify Jerusalem’s religious significance to Islam. During the Crusades, Jerusalem also grew in importance, but only because of the Christian ‘invaders”.
In Israel’s 1948 War of Independence, the nation was unable to win back East Jerusalem. In the Six Day War of 1967 Israel did indeed take back her entire capital, but the Jordanians had demolished everything of Jewish importance.
General Moshe Dayan, who believed he understood the Arabs, chose not to destroy the Dome of the Rock shrine or the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount. These were structures built to dominate Jews and Christians, but without consultation of his government, Dayan negotiated his own vision of a peace deal with the defeated Arabs.
A “Burdensome Stone” – To the “Kings of the Earth”
And so the Arab world is happy to use the Palestinian situation as a thorn in Israel’s side until her destruction, as the Koran sees it. Islam regards areas already conquered for Allah as property that will always be returned to them, but Israel is proving very resilient.
Turkey’s President Erdogan, deluded into thinking he will be the new Islamic sultan, continually makes threats.
Whether it will be a physical attack, ‘political correctness’, antisemitism, a world government, Satanic lust for power, all will be thwarted by that “burdensome stone” and the God who placed it there.
His Burden is Light!
President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem is a wonderful event, but also a sign of the calm before the storm.
If you are having trouble with family, don’t be discouraged. So did the Lord Jesus Himself!
It has worked for me!
