Statement Concerning President Obama’s Decision to Abstain from Vetoing the Latest Anti-Israel Resolution in the United Nations Security Council

Netanyahu vs. Obama

The President’s decision was shameful, reckless, spiteful, and dangerous.

It was shameful because it represented a betrayal of our nation’s best friend and ally.

It was reckless because it serves to encourage Palestinian intransigence and terrorism.

It is spiteful because it treats the only democracy in the Middle East as if it were a third rate banana republic.

It is exceedingly dangerous for our own nation because Israel is “the apple of God’s eye” (Zechariah 2:8), and we have poked our finger in that eye. Further, the Word of God specifically warns that those who try to divide the land of Israel in the end times will be subjected to God’s wrath (Joel 3:2). Accordingly, we should expect to experience either a major terrorist attack or a serious natural calamity, or both.

Let us pray that President Trump will decide to take immediate action to counter this insane action on the part of our government. There are a number of things he could do in addition to denouncing the decision, which he has already done. For example, he could move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, invite Netanyahu to the White House and reaffirm our commitment to Israel, cut off all funding to the Palestinians, defund the United Nations in whole or in part, and sponsor a bipartisan Congressional resolution stating that the UN resolution is not United States policy. He has already appointed a new ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, who is an Orthodox Jew and a strong supporter of the biblical and legal right of the Jews to the land.

The United Nations has gone mad. In the midst of overwhelming problems like the Syrian civil war, the belligerency of Iran, the insanity of North Korea, the increasing aggressiveness of Russia, and the rampage of ISIS, the member nations of the UN are focused on condemning Israel for building houses and apartment buildings in territory given to the Jewish people eternally by God. It is an example of anti-Semitism gone to seed.

Further, as Prime Minister Netanyahu has pointed out, it is an exercise in ethnic-cleansing. There are 1.7 million Arabs living within Israel, but this resolution says no Jew has the right to live in “Palestinian territory.” This is hypocrisy gone to seed.

There is a positive spiritual significance to the President’s decision in that it is a significant step toward the fulfillment of the last end time, pre-Tribulation prophecy concerning Israel — namely, that all the nations of the world will come together against Israel over the issue of Jerusalem (Zechariah 12:2-3). And thus, this decision is a strong indicator of how close we are to the consummation of the age.

We are literally on the threshold of the Tribulation. And that, in turn, means the Rapture could occur any moment. Maranatha!

  • Israel is still God’s chosen nation on this earth ! If we , as a country , would get behind and help Israel , we , aas a country , would be blessed by God and prosper once again as a nation !

    • You can’t make a blanket statement like this that says we should be behind Israel.
      We are behind God. If Israel wants to join in fine. But if not, then we have to let them suffer the consequences of their mistake. To join them in that case is reckless and dangerous, as this means we are on the side of evil, chosing men/nations over God.

      • How did you get behind God without getting behind Israel. It was Israel who gave to this world One Living God. Please remember the Syro Phoenician woman was called by Jesus himself as Dog. So without this King of Israel you are as good or bad as Dog. So blindly or not lets support Israel.You and I are no one to Judge whether Israel is right or wrong.If all Israel has to be saved then believers of the Gospel must show the unconditional Love of Christ to his own people. I am from India and we will continue to support to Israel specially at this time of need.

  • Hopefully believers in Yeshua have not stopped petitioning G-d after the election of surprise came to be! We have a “baby Christian” President-Elect (Dr. Dobson’s phrase) and a seasoned Christian VP- Elect. These men, (and others whom the L-rd has placed in office to hold up their arms in this battle) need our prayer support now more than ever. Mr. Preibus made a statement that Trump is NOT the Savior – there is already One, and His name is Jesus Christ!
    Comforting words from Daniel (4:17;4:25;4:32;4:34,35) from the mouth of angel messengers and from the haughty ruler himself: “..the Most High (ElElyon) rules in the kingdom of men and gives it to whom ever He will, setting up even the basest of men” and”none can stay His hand or say to Him ‘What are You doing?” “

  • This vote by our U. N. representative at the behest of Obama is everything Dr. Reagan says it is. Shameful, dangerous, reckless & spiteful. If Trump is true to his word, and we should all pray that he is he will reverse many of this horrific, Obama dictates. Individually, we can support Israel at every opportunity. DO NOT remain silent when you hear someone disparaging Israel. Israel is NOT an occupier, it has a right to this land. You can join and support groups like http://www.CUFI.org. Christians United For Israel.

  • http://bloodmoonscoming.com/?page_id=593 shows a statistically impossible symmetry between the Blood moons, Solar Eclipses, and Lunar Eclipses, from 2010 through 2019! They all point to the manifestation of Jesus to mankind! Mysteriously, September / 2017 brings the Rev. 12 sign in the stars! Regarding this sign in the stars, Micah 5:3 tells us, “Therefore He shall give them up, until the time that she who is in labor has given birth; Then the remnant of His brethren shall return to the children of Israel. Will the disapora ALL begin to return home in 2017!? What could cause such change? God could put great fear in the hearts of the diaspora through His punishment on the nations, who with their resolutions, attacked Israel through the UN. These same nations now plotting to injure Israel economically via sanctions!

    2017 appears to be bringing with it great changes.

  • It is kind of a paradox because it is shameful, wreckless…and saddening. But at the same time it is only 1 step closer to the rapture. With the ushering in of a new President who is giving us so much hope in restoring many things (of righteousness) that we’ve lost due to previous adminitrations, it is frustrating to see Obama doing all he can to try to sabotage the so called peaceful and smooth transition of power. What hypocrisy. What if Bush would have done something like this in his last few weeks that would have made things harder for Obama?

  • We need to pray for our new President, that God would protect him from spiritual and physical attacks and give him great wisdom and understanding to do his job for the next eight years.

    President Trump can cut a minor amount of funding via executive action. A definitive statement would be to move the embassy to Jerusalem. Then, cut off all Palestinian funding. Also, invite Mr. Netanyahu to the White house and host a dinner in his honor.

    • I am glad to see that President Trump and First Lady Melania treated Prime Minister Netanyahu and his wife with utmost respect, they hugged one another, what a nice sight compared to how the Prime Minister was treated by President Obama.

  • A friend of mine told me that she prays regularly for President Obama, but she says the more she prays, the worse his behavior becomes. I think President Obama is like the pharaoh of Egypt, whose heart was hardened by God.

    I have already begun to pray for President-Elect Trump, Vice President-Elect Pence, and our nation. I pray that our new leadership will soften and humble their hearts, repair the damaged relationship with Israel, and do the will of God.

  • All these (Sa’tanic) goon’s (pauper’s – kings & queens) have no fear of the Ter-ror of the Lord! Yes, Khazaria & ROME (VAT) are doing the work of Ba’al – We can rest assured whether your Barry, Valerie J, Clanton’s, Geo sore rears, Rothshield’s or paumper pias /Harlot, all will fear the Lion of Judah!
    HE said, I (we) believe it!
    How much more damage BS will (can?) do before the 20th? Only as much as the Lord allows – Expect we’ll be seeing one another on the Way up Soon!

  • Genesis 12:3 – “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you” — Yes Dr. Reagan, Maranatha!

    • Re: Gen 12:3, a point to my friends where I live, focused on that part of the verse “…HIM who curses…”. Do we think God is limited to cursing an entire nation as his only righteous remedy? And especially where the nation’s majority is opposed to the leaders’ actions. My though is: while God certainly could (and has) cursed entire nations, in this instance it does not seem to fit with His character. In our situation, could it be that it is the individuals, not the nation, who absorbs a curse/retribution/punishment from God? Based on all the evidence we see reported thus far, this move in the UN was purely a decision by the President (B. Obama), instructing his UN ambassador (S. Powers) to manipulate a resolution (a cursing) which was repeated, reinforce and justified by the secretary of state (J. Kerry). If any of these people (including advisors and staff) have or will suffer God’s righteous cursing (health and life catastrophes), I absolutely would not be surprised? And quite frankly, I expect it to happen. And to be clear, I’m not wishing evil on anybody, its just that God has said what God has said.

      • Could someone please explain to me how Jesus can come back any moment when 2 Thessalonians 2:3 says, “Let no man decieve you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”
        And one other thing. Paul says in Romans 2:28 that, “But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter;whose praise is not of men, but of God.” Is this not saying that Gods chosen people are Christians, not so-called jews?
        P.S. who is “the synagogue of Satan” mentioned by Jesus in his Revelation? I only know of one people who go to a synagogue. But, maybe God loves the “jews” so much he will let them in to heaven even though they hate him and grab their testicles and spit every time his name is mentioned! But, I don’t think so. No, i dont think you can hate Gods beloved son and be Gods chosen people. But im sure you guys know a lot more about it than i do. Amen

      • Some 85% of the Jews in Israel are secular humanist – too true. There’s nothing holy or right about their current government, which is woefully and publically corrupt. When the new Temple does get erected, Jesus Himself destroys it upon His return and replaces it with His own. And so, I’d agree with your concerns there. But, a Christian Zionist’s service isn’t to the Jewish people, but to God. Because of God’s promises to Israel and their future in the the next millennia as a priesthood to the people living in that time period, we honor God’s desire to “bless those who bless you [Israel]” instead of being on the receiving end of His “I will curse those who curse you.” It is simply and purely obedience to God.

        Your may benefit from reading http://www.lamblion.com/articles/articles_jews12.php concerning the Jews fulfilling so many prophecies today and http://www.lamblion.com/articles/articles_millennium7.php on the error of Replacement Theology.

  • I love that Donald Trump soundly trounced Hillary Clinton and will demolish Obama’s “legacy.” He will be gone and like Jimmy Carter, will be historically remembered as the worst president in the USA.

    We must pray for our leaders. I was for Donald Trump from the beginning because although the liberals mocked him, he held fast and with God’s help (I prayed for DT at 7 pm nonstop until they announced his win!) he won!

    I want to go home. I am 76 and tired of this insane and evil system. Come quickly, Lord Jesus.

    • Amen to that.

      I always said that I did not know who would be President, but one would be slow for the Lords return and the other would be fast for the Lords return, but now with what obama did I fear that GOD will punish the U.S. and leave it on the dung heap of history. I pray that it does not happen but obama stuck his finger in God’s eye for God is not to be mocked.
      Come quick Lord Jesus, I am sick of this evil world.
      I think that this might bring forth the beginning of Palms 83.

  • Remember, The nations who have went against Israel and treated her badly fall under severe judgment from the Lord. Many nations have fallen because of how they dealt with Israel….. Genesis 12:3.

    • Every Christian should be involved in praying for Israel, We are praying for Israel everyday and asking the Lord to help them with his mighty hand. We are wondering if we are in Psalm 83. O God, do not remain silent, do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads.

      With cunning they conspire against your people, they plot against those you cherish.

      “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”

      With one mind they plot together, they form an alliance against you….the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites, Byblos, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia, with the people of Tyre. Even Assyria has joined them to reinforce Lot’s descendants.

      Do to them as you did to Midian, as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon, who perished at Endor and became like dung on the ground.

      Where does this scripture fit in, it is very relevant to these times. Wonder if Dr. Reagan could place where we are in Biblical History?

  • God bless you Dr Reagan thank you for your thoughts and information as well as everyone that works in your ministry. I always have been so blessed and look forward to your programs on TV and on line magazine. You have brought me so much hope and God’s love and Grace. May God bless you and I will join you to look up and be ready Maranatha Maranat ha to all of us!

  • Obama was so far south in his polices that it caused you folk to vote in a man such as Donald Trump, and if a name means anything consider “Donald” it is a kings name.
    http://www.behindthename.com/name/donald. As for the word “Trump”, it is what a trumpet does, i.e. “trump”. The Bible generally uses the word “trumpet” or “trump” to denote a warning or that an imminent action is about to take place..

    Granted this is just speculation, however I would be very cautious about hitching my cart to this horse in the hope that greatness will come from this man. Chapter 18 of Revelation describes greatness to Babylon not America

  • Just look at the other signs, earthquakes, volcanos, famine, immorality, wars, rumors of war. Just read God’s Word, the road map to the tribulation is now. It is as if looking thru a window and your nose is pressed against it. Marantha, Lord come soon!

  • I am so thankful to have stumbled upon this website. I have saved the link under my Bible Study links, so I can visit it often. I’ve not seen a site quite like this one. I also love the artwork. very nice. We must all continue to pray for this country and all of the people of the world. There are so many terrible things happening every day.
