The IDF, Leviticus 26 and What It Means To “Support Israel”

Published by Rob Skiba March 13, 2015 at 2:53 PM

Christians have been and are still being deceived and guilt-tripped into a “We MUST support Israel” mentality. However, we really need to ask ourselves what that actually means – and do so in Biblical CONTEXT and not in geo-political (Zionist) contexts. Recently, Gonz (from Canary Cry Radio) posted a “rant” regarding this issue in his video “The Jewish Conspiracy, New World Order, Bible Prophecy and the Confusion Therein.” You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/Q2wUfuOVv1k

I went on a similar “rant” last year in the Quest4Truth Show Episode 11: http://www.quest4truth.net/Archived-Shows/quest4truthepisode11

In Gonz’s video, he brought up Genesis 12 at the beginning of it. That needs some elaboration. One of the things that I find exceptionally annoying and all too common among Christians today is the tendency to cherry-pick verses and twist and distort them entirely out of context to make a point. This is most obviously seen in the usual (paraphrased) quote, “Bless Israel and be blessed. Curse Israel and be cursed.” Let’s look at that section of Scripture and keep it in context…

Genesis 12:

1 Now the Lord had said to ABRAM:“Get out of your country,From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you.

2 I will make YOU a great nation; I will bless YOU And make YOUR name great; And YOU (ABRAM) shall be a blessing.

3 I will bless those who bless YOU, And I will curse him who curses YOU; And in YOU all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Genesis 12 is NOT talking about the 20th century nation *calling* itself “Israel.” Are “all the families of the earth” blessed because of that nation-state? I think a LOT of families of dead loved ones from relentless Middle Eastern conflicts surrounding that “nation” for the past 67 years will scream a collective, “NO!” Indeed. Because Genesis 12 is NOT talking about the modern state of Israel!! The entire context of that chapter is Abram’s call to leave Ur and go to where YHWH was going to show him to go. YHWH was assuring Abram of His promise to him. He was telling Abram not to worry, because YHWH would bless anyone who blesses HIM and curse anyone who curses HIM along the way. In other words, “Have a safe trip Abram and don’t worry about anything. I’ll be with YOU every step of the way.” Yet, I hear it all the time whenever I “rant” just like Gonz did in his video – Christians “warning” me not to “curse Israel.” It’s a strawman argument based on a twisting and distorting of a cherry-picked verse taken entirely out of CONTEXT. And the political Zionists are all to happy to capitalize on such ignorance and use it as a perpetual means for fear-based manipulation, designed to advance their agendas.

I also addressed that issue from 1:25:45 to 1:27:25 in my Yahuwah Triangle Part 2 video:

Suffice it to say, next time someone tries to pull the Genesis 12 “blessing/cursing” issue on you whenever you question the 1948 establishment of a nation-state *calling* itself “Israel,” give them a healthy dose of CONTEXT. Take them right to the text and show them what is going on there. It’s about Abram – the MAN – being blessed by YHWH in his journey out of Ur to the land of Canaan.

As an interesting side note: “Notice that Abram went to the land run by NEPHILIM. It was called the “land of CANAAN” for a reason. He hung out there his entire life, never seeing the actual fulfillment of that land becoming his. In fact the fulfillment of that promise would not happen for over 400 years, when the house of Jacob, which had become a nation IN EGYPT, was later ushered into the land by (hint, hint) a man named Yeshua (Joshua) after a time of Tribulation (the Exodus). Hmmmmm. There just might be a lesson there for us to consider. It sure brings the actual CONTEXT of Isaiah 66:8 into clearer focus when we do.

Now, having said that, I think Gonz is RIGHT ON TARGET with his prophecy alignment concentric ring grid (beginning at about 12:20 in his video). With that in mind, we are looking for a COMPLETE ALIGNMENT of the prophetic Scriptures for the Millennial Reign establishment of the nation of Israel in accordance with Jeremiah 23, 30, 31, the entire book of Hosea, Ezekiel 36 – 37 and of course Isaiah 65 – 66. Anything else is a counterfeit.

Here’s the real problem as I see it: WE are not Israel’s Defense Force. And neither is their own I.D.F.

Biblically speaking, YHWH is Israel’s TRUE Defense Force! If they would just adhere to Leviticus 26, there would be NO NEED for constant appeals to the U.S. and the United Nations for “support” resulting in an endless river of bloodshed. Indeed, THIS is the true I.D.F.:

Leviticus 26:

1 ‘You shall NOT make idols for yourselves; neither a carved image nor a sacred pillar shall you rear up for yourselves; nor shall you set up an engraved stone in your land, to bow down to it; for I am the Lord your God.

2 You shall keep My Sabbaths and reverence My sanctuary: I am the Lord.

3 ‘IF you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them,

4 then I will give you rain in its season, the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

5 Your threshing shall last till the time of vintage, and the vintage shall last till the time of sowing; you shall eat your bread to the full, and DWELL IN YOUR LAND SAFELY.

6 I will give PEACE in the land, and you shall lie down, and NONE will make you afraid; I will rid the land of evil beasts, and the sword will NOT go through your land.

7 You will chase your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you.

8 Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you.

9 ‘For I will look on you favorably and make you fruitful, multiply you and confirm My covenant with you.

10 You shall eat the old harvest, and clear out the old because of the new.

11 I will set My tabernacle among you, and My soul shall not abhor you.

12 I will walk among you and be your God, and you shall be My people.

13 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be their slaves; I have broken the bands of your yoke and made you walk upright.

The ONLY reason “Israel” has been at war since her “founding” is because they assembled THEMSELVES together (Zeph. 2:1,2) in DEFIANCE of Leviticus 26. They are reaping this portion of that chapter:

Leviticus 26: 

 14 ‘But if you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments,

15 and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant,

16 I also will do this to you:I will even appoint TERROR over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart.And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.

17 I will set My face against you, and you shall be DEFEATED BY YOUR ENEMIES.THOSE WHO HATE YOU SHALL REIGN OVER YOU, and you shall flee when no one pursues you.

18 ‘And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I will punish you SEVEN TIMES more for your sins.

19 I will break the pride of YOUR power; I will make your heavens like iron and your earth like bronze.

20 And YOUR strength shall be spent in vain; for your land shall not yield its produce, nor shall the trees of the land yield their fruit.

21 ‘Then, if you walk contrary to Me, and are not willing to obey Me, I will bring on you SEVEN TIMES more plagues, according to your sins.

22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, destroy your livestock, and make you few in number;and YOUR HIGHWAYS SHALL BE DESOLATE.

23 ‘And if by these things you are not reformed by Me, but walk contrary to Me,

24 then I also will walk contrary to you, and I will punish you yet SEVEN TIMES for your sins.

25 And I will bring a SWORD against you that will execute the vengeance of the covenant; when you are gathered together within your cities I will send pestilence among you; and you SHALL be delivered into the hand of the ENEMY.

26 When I have cut off your supply of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall bring back your bread by weight, and you shall eat and not be satisfied.

27 ‘And after all this, if you do not obey Me, but walk contrary to Me,

28 then I also will walk contrary to you in fury;and I, even I, will chastise you SEVEN TIMES for your sins.

29 You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters.

30 I will destroy your high places, cut down your incense altars, and cast your carcasses on the lifeless forms of your idols;and My soul shall abhor you.

31 I will lay your cities WASTE and bring your sanctuaries to DESOLATION, and I will not smell the fragrance of your sweet aromas.

32 I WILL BRING THE LAND TO DESOLATION, and your ENEMIES WHO DWELL IN IT shall be astonished at it.

33 I will scatter you among the nations and draw out a sword after you;YOUR LAND SHALL BE DESOLATE AND YOUR CITIES WASTE.

34 Then the land shall enjoy its sabbaths as long as it lies desolate and you are in your enemies’ land; then the land shall rest and enjoy its sabbaths.

35 As long as it lies desolate it shall rest—for the time it did not rest on your sabbaths when you dwelt in it.

36 ‘And as for those of you who are left, I will send faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; the sound of a shaken leaf shall cause them to flee; they shall flee as though fleeing from a sword, and they shall fall when no one pursues.

37 They shall stumble over one another, as it were before a sword, when no one pursues; and you shall have NO POWER TO STAND BEFORE YOUR ENEMIES.

38 You shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.

39 And those of you who are left shall waste away in their iniquity in your enemies’ lands; also in their fathers’ iniquities, which are with them, they shall waste away.

Of course, many will say these things ALREADY happened. Indeed they did. But do not deceive yourself into thinking it won’t happen again. Just because they have “won” a number of wars against them, and just because there is the appearance of prosperity in the land, YHWH’s Word remains true. We see over and over again that YHWH is patient and longgggg suffering. He gives us a long leash with ample opportunity to repent. That may be what is happening now. Remembering Abraham’s appeals regarding the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, it may be that “Israel” has been spared because of the few righteous who ARE in the land. But we must remember that Yeshua said to FLEE Judea in the Last Days. Why? Because Zechariah 13:8,9 WILL happen. And no “support” from us or anyone else will stop it. The only reason this will happen is because of what is said in Leviticus 26. Consider also…

Leviticus 18:

24 ‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you.

25 For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants.

26 You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you

27 (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled),

28 lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you.

29 For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

30 ‘Therefore you shall keep My ordinance, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves by them: I am the Lord your God.’”

Take a look at modern “Israel’s” actions and attitudes toward YHWH and His Law. Are they in alignment or against it? If, as it appears, they are against it, and they persist on disobedience and defilement of the land, then NOTHING will stop YHWH from vomiting them out. I wonder how that will jack up the minds of most evangelicals. I think they will become quite disillusioned. Again, if “Israel” OBEYS the early parts of Leviticus 26, NOTHING and NO ONE will EVER harm them. But if they choose to live in disobedience, then NO ONE and NOTHING will stop verses 14-39 from happening. Nothing will change the truth of Lev. 18 either. It’s a pipe dream to imagine otherwise. So, when we think in terms of “supporting Israel” we need to be encouraging ALL to “get back on YHWH’s page” and become intimately familiar with Leviticus 26:1-13 and also the remaining verses after verse 39…

Leviticus 26:

 40 ‘But if they confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers, with their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, and that they also have walked contrary to Me,

41 and that I also have walked contrary to them and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if their uncircumcised hearts are humbled, and they accept their guilt—

42 then I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and My covenant with Isaac and My covenant with Abraham I will remember; I will remember the land.

43 The land also shall be left empty by them, and will enjoy its sabbaths while it lies desolate without them; they will accept their guilt, because they despised My judgments and because their soul abhorred My statutes.

44 Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, nor shall I abhor them, to utterly destroy them and break My covenant with them; for I am the Lord their God.

45 But for their sake I will remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am the Lord.’”

46 These are the statutes and judgments and laws which the Lord made between Himself and the children of Israel on Mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.

We cannot allow ourselves to “support” POLITICAL agendas when it is a SPIRITUAL issue. If we do, we will not be pleased with the results and MANY will die as LOTS of innocent blood is shed. Am I for the nations attacking that plot of land? NO! I am not. I am not for ANY bloodshed. But I can’t see any way around the Word of YHWH. He says what He means and means what He says. Nothing I can do will stop it. So, then I am left with a question, who and what do I support? Political agendas dictated and run by Luciferians or spiritual agendas dictated and executed by YHWH? I should think the answer is quite obvious.

YHWH has “house rules” – obey them, reap the benefits of HIS land. Disobey and you are headed for Babylon – the place of which He is calling us to come OUT – and a whole world of hurt. Therefore, I will support the SPIRITUAL agenda YHWH has laid out for the people HE calls Israel and dismiss the political agendas of those who are opposed to YHWH and His house rules, because nothing good will come of the latter.
