President Trump presided over the historic signing last month of a "dawn for the new Middle East," establishing a peace agreement, national recognition and formal political ties of two Arab States—the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain with the nation of Israel.
Since Trump took office, protests, riots and resistance dominated the news landscape and threatened the very existence of America.
In parallel during that time and rarely mentioned were the high-level delegations to and from Israel. The UAE and Bahrain had been secretly negotiating since Trump came into office.
Mirroring those efforts, a scaling up in destruction and intensity over the months peaked the second week of Sept. 2020 with the burning of churches, murders, rapes, assassinations of police officers, threats of all kinds, looting, toppling of statues, wanton destruction of public and private property, with communist-inspired protestors attempting to replace law and order with anarchy and fire.
Thousands marched together with their fist-clenched comrades incessantly chanting "Black Lives Matter" and other phrases, no matter the circumstances or insane the reasoning.
Riot after riot, burnings after burnings, murders after murders continued through the night of Monday, Sept. 14.
The following morning on Tuesday, Sept. 15, the signing ceremony commenced and concluded with celebrations in Washington at the White House, Israel and the Middle East.
Then, on the very night of the peace accord ceremony, there was silence. Quietness prevailed across America for days and weeks.
The massive riots, burnings, murders, looting and destruction were a last gasp attempt by Satan to divert attention and upend the events. It was as if all of the manifested screaming and anguish of torment, the grinding of teeth, were a sign of the complete and irreversible devastation of Satan's plans developed over millennia destroyed in one day.
Israel had signed a historic double peace agreement with two Arab states, Bahrain and the UAE, with more to follow.
God Governs in the Affairs of Men
At the Constitutional Convention of 1787 Benjamin Franklin said, "The longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth—that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it possible that an empire can rise without His aid?"
The same holds true for Israel and the American Republic today.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the deals, saying, "This day is a pivot of history; it heralds a new dawn of peace."
Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law summed up his version of the accords by saying "they have the ability to change the whole course of the Middle East." How true.
The UAE and Bahrain are only the third and fourth countries to sign a peace agreement and recognize Israel. Jordan committed to peace in 1994, following Egypt in 1979. And, there are more Arab nations and others to come in the upcoming weeks and months.
The recognition and blessing of Israel is rising in the Middle East and all over the world, and will continue to rise and grow.
The 400th Anniversary of America
The screaming, the shouting, the intimidation, the looting, the unrest in America is really not about "racism" or "anarchy" or "statues."
It's about an attempt to usurp the move of the Holy Spirit and the 400th anniversary of the birth of America on Nov. 11, 2020. It was 400 years ago the Pilgrim fathers and settlers landed off the coast of Massachusetts, dedicating the land, nation and people to the glory of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Before stepping ashore, they laid at anchor in the bay for three days, covenanting together in prayer and fasting for the first time in the history of the planet to build a new nation under God with Jesus Christ as Lord, led by the Holy Spirit and based on biblical principles in complete surrender to His will and plans.
Turning their backs on the European models of kings and queens and royal courts, the Pilgrims returned to the biblical model of governance the Israelites had before Saul, declaring "No king but Jesus!"
An examination of the attacks in the U.S. over the course of the past four years shows many times each one was a demonically inspired attack on biblical principles and the move of the Holy Spirit through individuals in the course of events building the nation.
It's not about Black Lives Matter (BLM), taking a knee, the NBA, NFL or the riots. It's not about the mindless screaming, death and destruction. Those are the signs of the last gasps of Satan's humiliation, torment and total defeat.
Taking a knee? You will see on the morning of Nov. 4, 2020, that it's about the prayers of those early saints in the dark holds of the Mayflower, who were on both of their knees interceding and praying to God the Father that will prevail and triumph hundreds of years later.
Combined with the prayers and intercessions of the saints today, it will result in the election of President Trump and Vice President Pence, with the nation turning back to God and righteousness.
Light Shines in the Darkness
Nov. 11, 2020, marks the 400th anniversary of the founding of America. Before stepping ashore, the founders laid prostrate before the Lord praying, anticipating the possible darkness and like Israel, the need for a nation to repent and turn back to God to fulfill its destiny.
As it is written: "The effectual fervent prayer of righteous men availeth much" (James 5:16, KJV).
