Conspiracy to Divide Jerusalem

by: Michael D. Evans
Conspiracy to Divide JerusalemPresident Barack Obama has officially presented his Middle East peace plan through Secretary of State John Kerry to my long-time friend Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. It links the United States of America to a demonic magic show of smoke and mirrors.
The peace plan calls for East Jerusalem, part of the capital city of the State of Israel and the home of Christianity, to become the Islamic capital for a Palestinian state. The payment for this is the promise that the Palestinian Authority will acknowledge Israel’s right of survival as a Jewish state. This is without question the theater of the absurd and a festival of hypocrisy.
On December 11, 1988, I confronted Yasser Arafat when he promised to denounce terrorism. I held up a copy of the PLO Covenant during a meeting of his executive committee and said, “If you denounce terrorism, denounce this document that calls for the destruction of the Jewish state.”
Arafat began to scream, “Shut up, shut up, shut up. What must I do to make you shut up?” I didn't shut up for him, and I will not do so for President Barach Obama. Through the years, I’ve confronted U.S. leaders over Jerusalem—from Ronald Reagan’s National Security Advisor Robert McFarlane to George H. W. Bush’s Secretary of State James Baker at the Madrid Peace Conference.
In Zechariah 12, the prophet declared, “I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” The battle for Jerusalem has gone on for more than 6,000 years—since the day Abraham pitched his tent on Mount Zion and made a covenant with God. Islamic dictators control over 13 million square kilometers in the Middle East and Israel controls a little over 20,000. The Islamic world wants Palestine as its twenty-second state, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Prime Minister Menachem Begin to whom I served as an advisor told me that when he went to Camp David in 1978 to make peace with Egypt, President Carter advised him that the United States did not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Begin answered, “Whether you recognize Jerusalem or don’t recognize Jerusalem, it is the capital of the State of Israel.”
The spiritual attachment of the Jewish people to Jerusalem goes back to the beginning of time. Throughout history, when the Jews were driven from the land, wherever they found themselves in exile, they faced toward Jerusalem when praying. They proclaimed, “Next year in Jerusalem.”
Jerusalem is a small city. It does not stand along a great river as does London, Paris or Rome. It boasts of no port, no major industry, and no known mineral wealth. The city doesn’t stand on a major thoroughfare connected to the rest of the world. Why, then, is Jerusalem the navel of the earth—the shaft that propels the world ever forward? No other city in the world has been ravished and destroyed and invaded as has the city of Jerusalem.
Indeed, Jerusalem belongs to God. The prophets declared that Jerusalem is the only city on earth where God wrote His name. It is the city where heaven and earth met, and will meet again. It is the only city for which we are commanded to pray. Six empires have conquered and occupied Jerusalem. God told Abraham, “I will bless those who bless thee, and curse him who curses thee.”
One prediction has held true throughout history for all nations that have come against the Jewish people: Empires such as the British and Roman Empire are no more. The greatest curse of all will come upon the nation that comes against Jerusalem.
The Holy City is the home of the Temple site—ground zero for spiritual warfare. Like the Great Whore of Babylon, principalities and powers roar across the earth attempting to seduce the nations. Jerusalem is still the apple of God’s eye, His diadem, His firstborn, His chosen, His beloved, the jewel in His crown.
In Joel 3:16, God declares: ‘The Lord will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the heavens will tremble. But the Lord will be a refuge for His people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.”
