- Rejoice, O people of Zion! Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem! Look, your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious, yet he is humble, riding on a donkey—riding on a donkey’s colt. I will remove the battle chariots from Israel and the warhorses from Jerusalem. I will destroy all the weapons used in battle, and your king will bring peace to the nations. His realm will stretch from sea to sea and from the Euphrates River to the ends of the earth. (Zechariah 9:9-10 NIV)
- The Lord of Heaven’s Armies will protect his people, and they will defeat their enemies by hurling great stones... On that day the Lord their God will rescue his people, just as a shepherd rescues his sheep. They will sparkle in his land like jewels in a crown. How wonderful and beautiful they will be!(Zechariah 9:15-17 truncated NIV)
The last US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spent a good part of the last 4 years trying to bring about a lasting peace. She professes to be a Christian. Does she not believe the above scripture? The only true peace that Israel (Zion) will receive comes only from her King (the one riding on a donkey – Jesus Christ Himself). The problem in our sick unbiblical world is that if Ms. Rice reads her Bible and believe what it says above, she “could” not in her job as US Secretary of State really say that Israel’s only lasting peace would come from God Himself! She would probably would have been fired from her job by Christian George W. Bush and if not, would certainly have been ridiculed from her job by her Democrat opponents and the rest of the godless political chattering class in the US and the rest of the world. So in lieu of this, she soldiered on in the last farce of a mid-east ‘peace process’.
So now we have self-professing Christian President Barack Obama, and with him come another peace in the Middle East end game. He is so-serious about this goal, that on Day 1 of his presidency, he named former Northern Ireland peace negotiator George Mitchell to lead the Middle-East peace initiative. Wow. I wonder how much credibility Mr. Obama gives the Bible on this issue. Wait…perhaps this video link below may help answer that question.
