This “article” is written as a prophetic message for the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, (although this prophetic message is directed specifically for you, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, it does also apply for whoever may be your successor – and it also applies for all other rulers among the nations).
I do not know if and when you may eventually see this prophetic message which I am posting on my web page.
Firstly, a short preamble to the prophetic message. Respectfully, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as an elected Jewish leader in Israel, this prophetic message, although written in English, comes directly from your very own Hebrew Bible.
About 2500 years ago, Daniel, a Jew from the tribe of Judah, who had been taken captive into Babylon as a young man, was given spiritual wisdom and knowledge through the ability to interpret dreams, of the rise and fall of all the nations in the world.
Daniel, himself had the following dream and vision while in Babylon:
“As I looked, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze. A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him. Thousands upon thousands attended him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the books were opened. Then I continued to watch because of the boastful words the horn was speaking. I kept looking until the beast was slain and its body destroyed and thrown into the blazing fire. (The other beasts had been stripped of their authority, but were allowed to live for a period of time.) In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed” (Daniel 7:9-14).
A brief interpretation of Daniel’s vision. As mentioned above, Daniel prophetically saw the rise and fall of nations, (including the rise and fall of the nation of Israel).
Although rulers come and go, Daniel saw one particular King, described as a human being, (for he was one like a son of man), who was taken up into the spiritual realm where he was given authority, glory and sovereign power so that all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed”.
This King, like a son of man, was taken up into the heavenly realm to sit upon the most glorious and highest throne, high above all other mortal human beings. He would literally be seated at the Right Hand of Almighty God, the God of Israel – and there would be no end to his dominion. This prophetic message is not difficult to understand.
Now, concerning this great anointed King, the Psalmist wrote the following:
Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.” The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.” I will proclaim the Lord’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father. Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. You will break them with a rod of iron; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.” Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him (Psalm 2:1-12).
Daniel was also shown when this Anointed King, would be revealed to Israel. It was to be about four-hundred-and-eighty-three years after King Cyrus, (not President Donald Trump), issued the decree for the Jews to return from the Babylonian captivity to rebuild the city of Jerusalem and the Temple.
The Hebrew prophets made it very clear that the Anointed King would come before the destruction of the second Temple. This prophetic message is still not too difficult to understand.
So, to continue, Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God, came at the appointed time as revealed to Daniel.
Also as was revealed to Daniel, “After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.”
Jesus the Messiah was crucified as was foretold by the Prophets, he was raised to life on the third day as was foretold by the Prophets. He ascended to be seated upon the highest throne, as was described by Daniel, (quoted above).
The prophetic message to you, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is this, quoted directly from your own Hebrew Bible:
Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Kiss the son, (i.e.pay homage to and worship, honour and obey Jesus, the King of kings), or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
The full might of the US army, the full might of your own defence force, will not save you from the wrath of the King of kings. You have recently commemorated the “wrong Holocaust”, saying, “Never again will the nations destroy the Jews”. But the Holocaust (burnt offering) specified in the Law of Moses, was symbolic of the sacrifice of Jesus the Messiah which should be commemorated with awe.
No military power will be able to stop the destruction, spoken of by the Psalmist, which will indeed eventually come upon all who refuse to bow before the King whose throne is in heaven (as it indeed happened in 70 AD when the second Temple was destroyed).
If and when this message may come to your attention, know and understand this:
Repent of your unbelief and rebellion against Jesus the Messiah. You have been warned by the words of the Hebrew Psalmist! God is loving and merciful and wants all people to come to the knowledge of Jesus and his atoning sacrifice through which humanity may be reconciled to Him.
Jesus the Messiah is King of kings and he is seated upon his throne in heaven at the Right Hand of God.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, you may be on a quest to take possession of the Promised Land by military and political power and by annexation, but it is not wise to try to take the inheritance while rejecting the Son, who is the Heir and King enthroned in heaven. (So-called “Christian Zionists”are betraying Jesus by encouraging your rebellion, but even they are expecting a great war and devastation.)
The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.”
The actual wording of the prophecy quoted above, in the English translation from the New International Version of the Bible, reads as follows:
Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
The prophecy, being quoted by me or anyone else, may sound like a hostile threat of destruction. It may have been used by the “Christian crusades” to force conversion to Christianity under the threat of death.
However, my understanding of the prophecy is that God is the one making the warning threat – and God will avenge in his own way, I would never incite hostility or aggression on behalf of any person or nation.
But indeed, historically, the Lord used Babylon as a sword of his own wrath against his own people on account of their unfaithfulness and in 70 AD at the hands of the Roman Empire.
When the Scripture from Psalm 1 is quoted by me as a prophetic word for all world leaders, I do not assume to know the manner in which the destruction spoken of, will come about.
But who is the Son being spoken of?
All Christians know and believe that it is none other than Jesus, the Stumbling Stone for Israel.
