Prophesy and say to Gog, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day when My people Israel dwell safely, will you not know it? Then you will come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army. You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land.

and half of the citizens in the United States stand with Israel.
The remainder of the world would prefer to see Jews in Israel wiped off the map and the land from Egypt to Lebanon and Syria given to the Palestinians. Sixty-seven percent of Americans ages 18 to 34 support Hamas and Iran in their efforts to eradicate Israel. When God spoke of Gog coming against Israel with the full backing of all the nations in the world, surely he foresaw a time when Western nations turned their back on Jacob.
In South Africa, it is now against the law to support Israel.
JOHANNESBURG — “South Africans fighting for Israel in Gaza could face prosecution at home, the government warns, as South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa once again denounces the conflict as ‘genocide.’ The foreign ministry says it’s ‘gravely concerned’ by reports that some South African nationals have joined the Israeli Defense Forces to fight in Gaza, or are considering doing so. ‘Such action can potentially contribute to the violation of international law and the commission of further international crimes, thus making them liable for prosecution in South Africa.’ ”
WRAL.com, a news station based in Raleigh, North Carolina, characterizes Jews in Israel as the enemy of peace for defending themselves against neighbors who consistently attack Jews.
Reuters reports,”Fifty-two percent of Gazans and 85% of West Bank respondents — or 72% of Palestinian respondents overall — voiced satisfaction with the role of Hamas in the war.”
To think that Hamas is the only group that seeks the destruction of all Jews in Israel is to reject the will and desire of Palestinians living in Gaza and Israel. If three out of four Palestinians approve of terrorist’s acts against Jews, then even if Hamas is eliminated a new group will rise to take its place
Fadi Quran, a West Bank activist and organizer who works for the progressive advocacy group Avaaz, says he is personally troubled by accounts of Hamas violence against women and children. But he says many Palestinians refuse to believe those stories.
“This idea that Gaza, after 17 years of blockade, was capable of challenging the blockade, challenging the military occupation, was seen as an inspiring act of resistance,” he says.
To many Palestinians, that deal represented another victory for Hamas, another sign of strength. “Hamas is going in the right direction,” says Hanan Barghouti, 59, who was arrested by Israel in September for allegedly aiding Hamas.
Barghouti told NPR she is heartened by the surge in popularity for Hamas in the West Bank. “Any person under occupation has the right to fight,” she says, during an interview in her home in Ramallah. “Hamas’ reputation has grown, not only locally but even on the international level.”
“Palestine is for Palestinians,” she says. “This is our house, our land.”
In less than one hundred years the world has turned from saving and protecting Jews to seeking their destruction. Across the globe, there are two casts of people silently hated by the masses: Jews and Christians.
“Pray for your enemies.” — Jesus. Pray indeed, for it would appear time is short. Our Lord’s coming is nearer today than yesterday.
