"Today's top headline on the Fox News website confirms that my first instinct was correct. It reads "Israeli Envoy: U.S. Ties in 'Crisis of Historic Proportions'".

Before we get into the meat of the Fox News story, let's review what Scripture makes clear concerning our absolute need to be a blessing to the nation of Israel if we wish to be blessed by God.

Genesis 12:3: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

God's Word couldn't be any plainer than it is, could it? Bless Israel and you'll be blessed by God. Curse Israel and you'll be cursed! (I guess the Obama administration didn't get the memo.) "

According to the Fox News article, Israeli Ambassdor to the United States Michael Oren told Israeli diplomats in a phone briefing over the weekend, "Israel's ties with the United States are in their worst crisis since 1975 ... a crisis of historic proportions."

Israel Will Build in All Parts of Jerusalem, Netanyahu Says:
"Tension over Jerusalem upset U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to the region last week when the Israeli government revealed plans to build 1,600 new housing units for ultra-orthodox Jews in Ramat Shlomo, a part of east Jerusalem captured in 1967. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called the announcement an insult to U.S. peace efforts"
Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton both chastised and demeaned Israel because it plans "to build 1,600 new housing units for ultra-orthodox Jews in Ramat Shlomo, a part of east Jerusalem".
This is Israel's capital city and it belongs to them and they have the right to build whatever they want, whenever they want and wherever they want. Inasmuch that America has these exact same rights to build in her capital city, Washington D.C.
The reason that our dignitaries, Biden and Clinton, heavily condemned and rebuked Israel for her plans to rightfully build in her captial city is because they plan to divide Jerusalem. There would be no other reason for them to be concerned about these plans, let alone incensed!
Their goal is to divide Jerusalem with the Palestinians. Therefore, they do not want any further Israeli "occupation" of the intended "give away". They intend on giving East Jerusalem to the Palestinians as part of their "two-state" solution.
God will not allow mere men to give away His Holy City that He gave only unto the children of Israel. Our government is thus asking for God's wrath to be poured out upon America.
Zechariah 12:3: And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Please see the March 11, 2010 blog entitled "WILL OBAMA'S POLICY TOWARDS ISRAEL RESULT IN EARTHQUAKES/DEVASTATION TO AMERICA?" to see what abandoning Israel may mean for the future of our country:

America has been so richly blessed because of our "big brother" type relationship with Israel. We have become like the harlot, Babylon with the sins that are streaming from our shores. Our only saving grace has been our special defender position with Israel. If we abandon her, we will not only lose God's favor and His protection, but we will be judged because God is a righteous judge who demands righteousness.

Revelation 18:3... For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Jeremiah 51:7 - Babylon hath been a golden cup in YHWH's hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.

Jeremiah 51:9 - We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.

It is time for all who are saved by the blood of Yeshua Ha Mashiach to come out of "Babylon". It is time to "wash" ourselves and abandon the many distractions of this world that separate us from true worship and relationship with the Lord Most High. 

Revelation 18:4 - And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."

We do not want to be found lukewarm when He comes as He forewarned us that He will vomit the lukewarm church out of His mouth. This verse has seemingly been ignored or looked over by many in the church who give much/most of their time, devotion and resources to the pursuit of worldly pleasures and recreation.
Revelation 3:16 So then, because you are LUKEWARM, and neither cold nor hot,I will vomit you out of My mouth
The enemy has blinded so many believers into thinking that since they are not sinning as the" lost" sin (drunkedness, fornication, pornography, etc. ) that they are blameless and righteous in His sight. Jesus warns of this blindness and tells us "anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see."
Revelation 3 18:I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.
Not giving God the priorty He deserves and demands IS SIN!

Jesus told us that the FIRST AND GREATEST commandment is to :"'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind".

It is vital that we reflect on the activities in our lives to see if we are  indeed consumed by God in our heart, soul, and mind.

Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:36-40).

We need to step back and take an account of how much of our time and energy is spent on "the works of our hands", considering the vast supply of electronics and technological gadgets at our disposal (cell phones with text messaging ,video games, computer, ipods, etc.).

What activites/recreation/fun do we while away a majority of our time doing? The enemy doesn't care if he acquires men's souls by rampant sin or just by apathy and distraction. If he can get God's people to fill their minds and time with the "fluff" of this world, then the Spirit's lead and calling will be muffled to the point of deafness. Either way, the roaring lion wins!

Isaiah 2:8 Their land is full of idols; the people worship things they have made with their own hands.

The creator God is a jealous God and we need to give Him total priorty. We need to self-examine to determine where our treasure truly lies, as that is where our "heart will be also be".
Luke 12:34 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
The best way to evaluate our priorties is to determine where, to what, to whom, do we devote the most time, energy and the most money. If we cannot say unequivocally that the Lord and the work of the Kingdom comes first and foremost in all categories, then it is time to loosen our grip on the enticements of this world and instead tighten our grasp onto the Lord God and things eternal.
There is in fact an assurance of protection for those who heed the command to "come out of Babylon". This should also be incentive for the children of God to separate from the temporal in these Last Days in which we are living.
A Command To Leave Babylon

11Leave the city of Babylon! Don't touch anything filthy. Wash yourselves. Be ready to carry back everything sacred that belongs to the LORD. 12You won't need to run. No one is chasing you. The LORD God of Israel will lead and protect you from enemy attacks.

It is now time to come out of Babylon and anoint our eyes so we may see. Jesus mercifully gave us the signs of His coming so that we will not be overtaken as by a thief in the night. Seeing the many signs coming to pass before our very eyes should incite us to open our spiritual eyes and look toward things eternal while forsaking the temporal, as the hour is late.

1 Thessalonians 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
