Israelis Held an Anti-President Obama Rally in Jerusalem

For the first time in years, the nationalists camp in the state of Israel and the body politic of the Jewish state held a large scale rally to protest the policies of the US as they relate to Israel with thousands of Israelis gathering in Jerusalem to say to President Obama that his pressure to stop growing and stop living anywhere in Israel where they desire to live will not work.

The Obama Administration has made it clear that Israel must stop building of all types throughout Judea and Samaria as well in parts of Israel's capital city, Jerusalem, and in particular sections of the city which were liberated during the Six Day War in 1967.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Israeli protests against the US administration led by President Obama and his policies related to Israel is evidence that Bible prophecy is and will be fulfilled.

One of the most high ranking delegations from the US government to ever visit Israel made a visit in Jerusalem and they apparently applied more pressure on a number of issues. Israeli protesters of US policy as it relates to Israel, demanded the Israeli government say yes to Israeli independence and no to US dictates on Israel.

As I report this story, I am reminded of the statement made by Jesus Christ in His Olivet Discourse which is recorded in Luke 21. In verse 24 of Luke's 21st chapter, Jesus says Jerusalem will be trodden down of the Gentiles until the Times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. That phrase, "The Times of the Gentiles", is referring to any time in history when Gentile world leaders control and dictate what happens in Jerusalem, the state of Israel and to the Jewish people. That is what is actually happening today.

The Times of the Gentiles began when Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem and took the Jews into bondage 2,500 years ago, II Chronicles 36. The prophet Daniel wrote that this Gentile control will continue until Jesus Christ comes back to establish His Kingdom, Daniel 2:40-45.

As the Obama administration continues to have an Israeli policy contradictory to God's plan for the Jewish people and Jerusalem, the evidence is very strong that Bible prophecy is and will be fulfilled.
