Is God Giving America a Second Chance?

I must admit I have had many sleepless nights because of the spiritual and moral decline of western civilization—especially in the two countries of which I am a citizen—Israel and America.
Some 15 years ago I watched President George W. Bush proclaim a “road map for peace” by dividing the Holy Land into “two states for two people living in peace and security.” Moreover, his response to the 9/11 catastrophe was a declaration that “Islam is a religion of peace.” He added that Israel must not build houses in Judea and Samaria because it belongs to the Palestinians.
I had already been in Israel 35 years and I knew, as did most Israelis, that Islam is not a religion of peace. All I could think of was God’s solemn promise to “bless those who bless you (Abraham and his seed)” and “curse him who curses you.” (Genesis 12:3)
In the book of the prophet Joel, the curse becomes more exact as to time and actions: “When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations … and I will enter into judgment with them on account of My people, My heritage Israel whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided My land.” (Joel 3:2).
Incidentally, I always wondered if Bush had forgotten that in 1947 the U.N. had divided the land of ancient Israel into two states—a Jewish state and an Arab state. (In those days there were no Palestinian people—only Arabs.) But the Arabs emphatically rejected two states for two people. They would settle for nothing less than one Arab state and no Jewish state.
When Barack Obama became president, I began to realize that Muslims were immigrating to America in ever-increasing numbers. Muslim missionaries were converting prisoners in jail. Famous actors, musicians and sports heroes were embracing Islam.
Obama was filling the White House with Muslims as his advisors. Because of my personal experience living in Israel and extensive research into Islam, I knew that Muslim leaders in America had a solid plan based on Sharia law to completely overtake the political establishment of the U.S.A. Not immediately. But not in the too-distant future either.
Few people have thought about this: A democracy without God cannot win against Islam. First, Islamic refugees flood into a country because of its superior economic prowess. What democratic people can turn away masses of Islamic refugees because of their religion?
Secondly, the birthrate of Muslims is much greater than that of any democratic country. Under pressure to find enough cheap laborers, democratic governments invite more available young alien men and women to their land. Muslim supply is unlimited.
Thirdly, scientific polls all state that between 10 and 15% of the Muslim population are prone to jihadism, with a goal to conquer the world for Islam. Islamic Sharia doctrine severely warns Muslims not to integrate into western society as other immigrants have done for centuries.
Over time, the helpless democratic country invaded by Muslim aliens has no defense and evolves into an Islamic culture through elections, fear and even terror, as is happening in Europe right now.
I watched as Obama routinely avowed protection for Muslims, no matter what, but never mentioned defending Christian values. Here and there a voice rang out, like that of Franklin Graham:
“I do know that the president defends Islam and chastises Christians, rebukes our allies and befriends our enemies, and fully supports gay marriages and abortion but denies the religious freedoms of those who don’t agree. Our nation is ridiculed abroad and morally crumbling within. We are in trouble. We have turned our back on God.”
BIBLICAL VALUES OUTLAWED
Abortion rights, homosexual rights and Islamic rights have become the predominant liberal values in America. Free access of migrants and immigrants—whether criminals or not—is promoted by liberals knowing that the majority of migrants will vote for liberal candidates. The goal: To create an overwhelming majority of liberal voters. It seemed it would not be long until decadence and debauchery had conquered America.
Indeed, who isn’t aware that Christian religious freedom has been eroding? Christian business owners, by law, are forced to serve same-sex marriage parties and cater festivities of transvestites, who in turn may lawfully use boys’ or girls’ bathrooms, according to their pleasure on any particular day.
Multitudes of atheists, financed by extremist liberal tycoons, are giving their entire lives to suing anything and everything that possibly looks like it came from the Bible.
Atheistic professors have rewritten American history, and are literally brainwashing the vulnerable youth of America—promoting hedonistic lifestyles and a lawless mindset, birthing violent protest against Biblical mores. Licentiousness is called freedom of expression; God-given values are mocked and speech by its proponents is suppressed.
“No borders” became the mantra of the far left, not giving a thought to the drugs pouring over the borders, resulting in the death of 52,000 Americans from drug overdoses in 2016! Heroin killed more Americans than guns did last year.
THE VANISHING AMERICAN JEWISH COMMUNITY
Obama also did what he could to turn America away from Israel. As liberal values have become the norm this decade, many, if not most, Jewish Americans have been a solid component of this anti-God movement.
As a result, the U.S. Jewish population in America is clearly declining through intermarriage and atheism. Abortion and homosexual rights have become more important to the Jewish community than the state of Israel; the values, ethics and attitudes between American Jews and Israeli Jews are fast growing apart. Think of Jews such as Bernie Sanders and his lukewarm embrace of his Jewishness. As The New York Times put it, “He doesn’t like to talk about it.” What kind of “Jews” will his great-grandchildren be?
Israel’s lack of importance to American Jewish lawgivers was clearly apparent when out of the 28 Jews on the Hill, 19 voted for the Iranian agreement, against the strenuous opposition of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who fears a nuclear attack in the future from Iran. Iran has vowed for years to destroy Israel and they can’t wait to build their nuclear weapons in order to carry out their threat.
Here is the one and only defense against an Islamic or atheistic takeover:
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (II Chronicles 7:14)
The Balfour Declaration, signed by the British Foreign Secretary James Balfour in 1917, favored a “national home” for the Jewish people. Shortly after, Britain was given an mandate by the League of Nations to rule the Holy Land and facilitate the establishment of a Jewish national home. Under Arab pressure, it withdrew from its commitment and proceeded to all but close the borders to Jews who were attempting to return to their anticent homeland. Multitudes of Jews who were denited entrance to the land God promised to the descendants of Abraham, were murdered in the Nazi Holocaust.
CHOSEN OF GOD FOR A MOMENT IN TIME
From 1917 to 1947, the God of Heaven gave the United Kingdom the privilege of establishing a new Israeli nation after 2000 years of exile. Britain spurned the Chance of the Ages to grant the Jewish people their own country on their own God-given land.
Now, in this moment of time, the God of Israel has given the United States the privilege of leading the way for the preservation of the Jewish state. The opposition against Israel will be massive. Those who hate Israel will be, first of all, targeting the potential protector—the U.S. president.
Will President Trump stand with Israel to help populate her land—Judea and Samaria? Approve Jerusalem as her capital? Will Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May assist or oppose? The Open Door will one day close.
This is the state of affairs as the new President of the United States has taken the reins. Can this president slow down the disintegration of a lawless generation which seems hell-bent on destruction? Can he turn around some of the anti-God laws? And foolish laws? And crazy laws? Laws which decimate the nation, and destroy its Biblical foundation?
That’s what the people of God are asking. So when my husband, Ari, who attended President Trump’s Prayer Breakfast, told me some amazing stories which could bring change and even revival to the United States of America, I felt a certain relief. I believe God is giving America a second chance.
