A friend just back from Israel described Zechariah 12 as a good description of what Israel is like right now. You can find the King James Version of Zech. 12 here: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Zechariah%2012&version=KJV
The words, “a cup of trembling” caught my attention. That is exactly what I have felt for Israel for quite some time. But this friend knows Israel like the back of his hand and if he said that, all the more so this must apply now. He also said reading the book of Joel is a timely thing right now too. I am doing that. Please feel free to join me.
One of the things causing trembling is how pro-Israel Christians are being targeted by a new anti-Israel movie. That can be checked out here:
I was surprised by the use of scripture twisting to make a point for the Palestinians. I don't know why I should be surprised but that is such a lame way to target Christians that I really was surprised. We of all people should know God's Word. Guess the time to try and mess us up because we do not know our Bible like we should has come and we had better be full of scripture oil to escape those things we see coming!
You can read it for yourself here:

I would also like to share with you an article from Bible Prophecy Today that speaks of the USA having an unshakeable bond with Israel.
Given these verses, I rather expect to see LOTS of building going on by Israel in Jerusalem. To tell the truth, there was a time I researched deeply these scriptures and found they particularly dealt with “East Jerusalem” which is exactly where the building is going on! It is an act of God! Now if it is for this time, the building will prevail. I am watching and invite you to watch with me.
Well, here is a message to President Obama from one of our citizens:
Sarah Palin is telling Obama to “Stop picking on Israel.” I agree with her!
I am also in favor of Standing as One in Solidarity with Israel. This music video is very special even if the pictures are hard to see.
In fact, let me post the originator of the music: http://www.voicesforisrael.org/about.html
