Prophecy Update: July 26 is the Ninth of Av!             7/26/2023

The Ninth of Av! This day commemorates the catastrophes for Israel. The list is heartbreaking and tomorrow is the Ninth of Av. (July 26) This day is not a holiday but a day of mourning. The first catastrophe happened in Numbers 13-14 when the 12 spies went into Israel to spy out the land. When the spies came out, only two of them gave a good report, the other ten said we are not able to fight against the inhabitants of the land. They said there were giants in the land. God judged them and made them march around for 40 years.

The Temple was destroyed on the Ninth of Av, not once but twice. First the Babylonians and then the Romans in 70 AD. The Jews were expelled from England in 1290 on the Ninth of Av. They were expelled from Spain in 1492 on the Ninth of Av. Both World Wars started on the Ninth of Av. In Hebrew the Ninth of Av is called Tisha B’Av.

“Tisha B’Av, one of two “full-day” fasts in the Jewish year (the other occurs at Yom Kippur), is the culmination of a three-week period of mourning called “The Three Weeks” in English or Bein HaMitzarim (literally, “between narrow straits”) in Hebrew. This name comes from a verse in the Book of Lamentations, which is traditionally read on Tisha B’Av:

“Judah has gone into exile under affliction And under harsh servitude; She dwells among the nations, But she has found no rest; All her pursuers have overtaken her In the midst of distress.”

Lamentations 1:3

“The three weeks of mourning begins with the fast of Shivah Asar B’Tammuz (meaning the 17th day of the Hebrew month, Tammuz), which was instituted to mark the breach of the Jerusalem walls during the Babylonian siege in 586 BCE. According to tradition, it also marks a number of other tragedies that befell the Jewish people after that day, including the halting of daily temple sacrifices and the burning of the Torah after the Babylonian invasion, and the erection of idols in the Temple during the Roman occupation. It is also considered the day on which Moses broke the first set of tablets containing the Ten Commandments after coming down Mt. Sinai to discover the people worshiping the golden calf.”

Why am I bringing this up now? Israel is in the throes of a coup. Ehud Barak and his cronies hate Benjamin Netanyahu and anyone who wants Israel to take possession of Judea and Samaria. They are using the judicial branch of Israel and especially the Supreme Court to force evil decisions on the State of Israel. The land of Israel and the prophecies regarding Israel getting her land is at the heart of this dispute! Here is how one American Synagogue talked about the Knesset decision today.

“Yet today, we have been feeling a rift in that unity, as the Knesset — Israel’s Parliament — voted to abolish the Reasonableness Doctrine. “This doctrine permits the court to intervene in government or municipal decisions or ministerial appointments and appointments to other public offices on grounds that the government hasn’t weighed all the relevant considerations, or was inappropriately biased. It is a primary instrument to protect citizens from arbitrary decisions that disregard the law and threaten our rights. Its cancellation means there will be no way to challenge decisions in cases such as conflict of interest, corruption, or a flawed process that violate civil and human rights. This is the first step in the government’s legislative assault on the judiciary that will gravely harm the rights of Liberal Jews, women, LGBTQ+ people, and Israeli Palestinians. The government continues to do so despite fierce opposition and mass demonstrations by Israelis representing every segment of Israeli society.”

The problem with what the Rabbi is saying is that the ‘Reasonable Doctrine’ is the leftist doctrine. It is a way for the court to stop any decision the left doesn’t like. This is why the people voted in large numbers to throw out the last government and put Netanyahu back in. He ran on overturning the Reasonable Doctrine and then the Knesset voted 64 to 0 to overturn the doctrine. This was a big win for good government. The left always tries to use the courts to get their way because they cannot win at the ballot box. They also do not talk about the huge numbers of people who are protesting for the overturn of the doctrine. The American media will not show you the over 100,000 people marching in Jerusalem supporting the overturn of the evil doctrine. Legislating from the bench was halted in Israel and I wish we would do that in America!

Here is how one of the enemies of Israel responded to the division in Israel. “Hezbollah’s Nasrallah: ‘The worst day in the history of Israel’ Terror group chief continues to mock Israel amid judicial reform upheaval; ‘There was a time when it was believed that Israel could not be defeated, and that its army was invincible.’ “There was a time when it was believed that Israel could not be defeated, and that its army was invincible. Many countries in the region considered its threat as an undeniable fact that cannot be removed,” said the head of the Shiite terror organization in Lebanon. In a sermon, Nasrallah stated, “This specific day is the worst day in the history of Israel, as some Israelis testify, and this day sets the country on a path toward disappearance.”

The enemies of Israel are salivating over the attack of the leftist Israeli’s over the Jews who believe that Israel should take possession of Judea and Samaria. Netanyahu’s coalition party is determined to take possession of the land and Satan is scared once again that God will fulfill prophecy! Joe OBiden got into the act by condemning Israel for the vote.

“Unprecedented and Inappropriate’: Sen. Tom Cotton Slams Biden Statement on Israeli Judicial Reform. “Joe Biden’s meddling in Israel’s internal politics is unprecedented and inappropriate,” Cotton said in a statement to The Algemeiner. “He has no business telling one of our most important allies how to govern their own country.” The bill, which bars Israel’s high court from using a standard allowing it to strike down any administrative action that it deems “unreasonable,” passed 64-0 after the opposition members of the 120-seat Knesset abstained from the vote. Israeli politicians have previously condemned Biden’s comments about the judicial reforms, with one member of the Knesset going so far as to write a letter to Congress in March urging Representatives to prevent Biden from repeating his “problematic statements” in the future.” 

The left lies constantly about this bill and here is a response from people with a level head: “Judge Alex Stein, who “commented that this feature of the judiciary allows the judge to step into the shoes of the executive branch.” “The new reasonability has definitely harmed the ability of the executive branch to manage their steps,” added Rothman, “thereby harming the principle of the separation of powers.” He noted that this created “an acute democratic deficit since the court gave itself the power to extend this authority to appointments in the executive branch, something with no equal in the world. A different, effective solution is required.” We Won!! 

After the vote, people were ecstatic that they have fixed a wrong. Imagine if anytime a president signed a bill or hired someone in the government that the court had a right to stop it! The Supreme Court of Israel was known to attack any appointment by Netanyahu and kick them out of the government. They did not like anyone he appointed so they attacked them all and this made the executive branch useless. Imagine we passed a law in congress and the Supremes did not like it. They would rule that it was wrong and they would disallow the law. The Supremes of Israel became the totalitarian rulers of Israel and the left loved it. Now the left is losing some power and the leftists in America are besides themselves!

This is important because it is happening the day before Ninth of Av. It should be a day of mourning for Israel because so many in Israel hate the truth and love every evil they can think of! The Lord raised up some Jews who are standing in the gap for the nation. They are falling in line with what God said He would do for His nation. This is encouraging as I see the left throw a fit like a spoiled brat. It reminds me of the response of the news outlets when Trump won the presidency…they could not stop crying and threatening etc. President Biden In the meantime curses Israel every chance he can get. Here is an example, always remember, don’t listen to what they say, look at what they do!

“He’s not usually known for truthfulness, but in June Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei tweeted an honest, straightforward statement about what he considers the golden key for his homicidal proxies in Israel. “The continually growing authority of resistance groups in the West Bank is the key to bringing the Zionist enemy to its knees, and this of course must be continued. That’s a statement we should take seriously. Also in June, a more than two-billion-dollar work-around by President Biden came to light. It amounts to a windfall for Khamenei to bolster Iran-backed terror in Jenin, a lawless Palestinian city located in Israel’s biblical heartland. Reuters reported on June 10 that in secret, Biden worked to unfreeze an economic sanction and authorized the transfer of $2.7 billion to Iran via Iraq, which owes Iran for electricity and gas imports, in order to secure the freedom of American prisoners held by Iran.” 

When I first read about this despicable behavior by the president and his woke politics, I prayed that God would protect Israel from this anti-Semitic behavior. President Obama gave 150 billion dollars to Iran to set up the Gog Magog prophecy and now Joe Obiden is adding fuel to the fire. Notice how the leader of Iran is giddy about the prospects of bringing Israel to her knees. Joe Obiden and his anti-Semitic crowd are also giddy to bring Israel to her knees. The hatred shown by our political class towards Pro Israel and Pro One State solution people rises to the level war. Iran promises war and God predicts war, it is sad that the United States government under Joe Obiden agrees with the Iranians of bringing Israel to her knees. Obiden also is pushing a coup in Israel through Ehud Barak!

“The police will determine whether the calls for civil disobedience by Ehud Barak and Yair Golan constitute sedition and will hand over their conclusions to the State Prosecutors Office in the next several days. Under Barak he tried to give away most of Judea and Samaria during his time as Prime Minister in 2000. Israel agreed in principle to give up its sovereignty in parts of Jerusalem’s Old City, including part of the Temple Mount, during peace negotiations with the Palestinians 23 years ago, according to a newly declassified document.

The Israel State Archives on Sunday published Jerusalem’s official response to then-US president Bill Clinton’s Israeli-Palestinian peace proposal in 2000, the Ynet news site reported. The document also showed that Israel under left-wing prime minister Ehud Barak demanded eight percent of the West Bank — home to 80% of Israeli settlers and some Palestinians — without any land swap in that territory, while a land swap in the Gaza Strip — which at that point included some 20 Israeli settlements, home to some 7,000 Israelis — would be no more than 2%.” 

This same Ehud Barak leads the leftist political class in Israel who want to divide the land of Israel and give the Palestinians more of Judea and Samaria and give Iran more room to attack Israel. They cry peace, peace when there is no peace! God will not let this happen because His Word says so. Ezekiel 38-39 teaches us that the world will respond to God’s protection of Israel with astonishment.  Here is what the newspapers will say when God delivers Israel:

“Then they will know that I am the LORD their God because I made them go into exile among the nations, and then gathered them again to their own land; and I will leave none of them there any longer.”

Ezekiel 39:28

About Joe

We live in the last days and the Bible commands us to watch for the Lord’s coming. I have a keen interest in history, prophecy and current events. I read widely about political and military developments and write a weekly blog from the things I follow. My special interest is in Middle Eastern affairs.

Since I was in college, I have also studied how God judges nations. It all started in Buck Hatches’ class at Columbia Bible College in 1979.

I fell in love with God’s word and especially the prophets. The results of this interest led me to writing The ‘I’ Judgements: Four Sins that Bring about the Fall of Nations. It serves as a warning to the United States, showing biblically of what we need to repent.
