What are some on-the-ground perspectives about Israel’s war with Hamas? Find out with hosts Tim Moore and Nathan Jones on the television program, Christ in Prophecy!
Air Date: December 9, 2023
Tim Moore: Welcome to Christ in Prophecy! Last week Nathan and I reviewed the Sign of Israel. This greatest of all the Signs of the Times has been on full display over the past several weeks as the eyes of the world have been focused on the trauma of the terrorist attack on Israel on October 7th, and the drama of the unfolding war on Hamas in Gaza.
Even now many wonder if this conflict will grow. Certainly, the satanic hatred that inspired the radicalized terrorist of Hamas has metastasized like a cancer around the world. And many of the nations immediately surrounding Israel of course have been fomenting animosity for the Jewish State since 1948.
Nathan Jones: Many American have been shocked to witness the blatant Antisemitism and condemnation of Israel that has manifested on college campuses and even in the halls of Congress. And although President Biden initially declared that the United States would stand with Israel, our solidarity with the Jewish people living there has been infamously fickle over the past 75 years. Already, we’re seeing signs that America is trying to hold Israel back from eliminating the evil that threatens its very existence.
And we’ve also seen Western media largely move on from the war in Israel. After a brief period of supposed shock at the atrocities committed by Hamas, the mainstream media is falling back into its normal mode of holding Israel to a higher standard than any other nation—and condemning its justifiable actions at every turn.
Tim Moore: You know we should not be surprised that the world is moving on—and turning its collective back on Israel. That is exactly what God’s Word prophetically proclaims will happen in the End Times. Eventually, all the nations will come against Israel. A series of wars will threaten the existence of the Jewish state as despots and dictators attempt to eradicate the Jews once and for all. But God has promised that He will protect and preserve Israel.
Nathan Jones: Well that’s right. The God who protects Israel never slumbers and He never sleeps. And so, while the Jewish people will endure trials and eventually a period of Great Tribulation, He will miraculously preserve a remnant of the Jews. And when they come to the end of themselves, they will turn to Him and cry out as for an only Son.
Tim Moore: The sign of Israel is proof that we are living in the season of the Lord’s return. The regathering of the Jews over the past 150 years and continuing today, their reestablishment as a nation, their repossession of their ancient capital of Jerusalem, and the refocusing of world attention on Israel proves that God’s prophetic time clock is nearing the midnight hour when Jesus will burst from the heavens.
Nathan Jones: Amen. Well, today, we want to gain an understanding of the prophetic significance of the horrors that visited Israel on October 7th and the ramifications of what is happening still in the Promised Land. We’ve released a number of our Prophetic Perspective videos highlighting voices from Israel in recent weeks. And today we’d like bring you excerpts from these powerful testimonies.
We are going to begin with Avi Mizrachi—the pastor of Dugit Ministry in Tel Aviv, a Lamb & Lion sister ministry. This testimony was recorded in late October, when Israel was still reeling from the horror of terror inflicted on their people. Here now is Avi’s recognition of the prophetic roots of the conflict we are witnessing—and the fate of those who have come against the Lord’s chosen people.
