“For such a time as this …” – Part 2
“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14
As you read this – at this very moment, even – thousands, if not millions, of Muslims from all around the world are preparing to march or have started to march toward Jerusalem. I believe that once again this event, like many others, is a mirror of what is to come in our near future as yet another fulfillment of prophecy from the Word of the one and only TRUE God.
This event is yet another example that man-made peace in this region is unachievable. Jerusalem is the center of the world; Jerusalem is God’s City; and Jerusalem is the Capital of the State of Israel. Peace in this area will not be possible because the Jewish people will not willingly divide Jerusalem again, and the Muslim world will not stop the aggression against Israel until they have Jerusalem.
As believers, we know that there is a great Spiritual war being waged around Jerusalem; God had, has and will always have a plan for Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the place that God chose to put His name on. Jerusalem is the city that our Lord will come back to when He returns. God’s enemy, Satan, knows this and therefore will continue to fight against God’s plan for this city.
While we know that God’s ultimate victory is promised, the reality is that we cannot stand still and do nothing about what’s happening. As I am writing this, I am saddened by the fact that, while many in the world are raising a very loud voice against the truth, against God’s people, against His city and ultimately, against God Himself, the majority of the Body of Messiah are choosing to sit quietly and do nothing about it.
It is time for the Body of Messiah to make a decision: are we with God or against God? This is not oversimplifying the issue. It is bringing it to very clear, understandable terms. This blog is meant to challenge those who claim that they are with God; it is time to show our commitment to Him through action. It’s time to make a loud statement of the truth for the sake of the Truth.
We are called for such a time as this!
