The Holy One of Israel Is Faithful

By Kit R. Olsen

It seems with all the prophetically charged events unfolding all around us, it can be very challenging at times to not see the entire prophetic overview—the whole prophetic picture of what must yet transpire according to Scripture—before the final prophecies are fulfilled.

Seeing Israel being accosted by the UN, instigated and encouraged by the Obama Administration is hard to take. Should we count down the days before he is out of the White House? Many of us are doing just that.

Considering Obama’s love for division, race baiting and racial tension, I am surprised he hasn’t taken issue with the title: “The White House.” Maybe he will yet, before he leaves the White House. After all, he might see it as a racially driven plot against him personally to call the U.S. presidential home “The White House.”

Obama’s own racism and Marxist ideology demand that people should be acknowledged by race instead of character and individuality. Maybe Obama will also attempt to ban the popular song “White Christmas” before his last day of his reign of coercion and oppression upon the American people.

Although the sitting “president” has a very short time left in office, he can still harm our great nation. His temper tantrums will continue. But he is playing with spiritual fire. Scripture makes it clear that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is not going to stand by and allow any dastardly deeds against Israel to go unpunished.

Obama has taunted the president-elect claiming he could have beat him in an election—but that is his own hubris and twisted fantasy. He made a desperate plea during the last few weeks of the presidential campaign that not voting for Hillary was a personal rejection of him. She lost (and so did Obama). Trump won. The American people won. God won.

Barack Hussein Obama is also attempting to impose draconian free speech restrictions by using a fake news propaganda bill which was signed into law by him on or around December 23, 2016. It is called the Portman-Murphy Bill, also known as the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act.

Now he is going after the Russians under the false pretense that they helped steer the outcome of the election. (He knows that is not true). His personal retribution for this unproven alleged cyber-hacking has resulted in expelling Russian diplomats from U.S. compounds in New York and Maryland. What a tough guy.

The Russians (and others throughout the world) are laughing at him and mocking him. The Russian Embassy in the UK responded to his sanctions with a “lame duck tweet” and also accused Obama ofengaging in “Cold War deja vu,” complete with a photo of a duck and the word “lame” They also included sentiments that stated, “everybody including the American people will be glad to see the last of this hapless administration.”

Let’s see what else this demagogue will do. We can be sure that this lame duck “president” will continue to allow and encourage illegal aliens to pour over our southern border to help him succeed in his quest to destabilize the U.S. and dramatically change our demographics. He stated recently, “America will become more brown.”

According to Obama, Americans have racial prejudice built into their DNA. Apparently his racial prejudice toward Christians, Jews and whites (American or not)—is not only in his DNA but in his entire being. His prejudice emanates from every pore of his devious narcissistic spirit.

The first “black” president was voted in by millions of white people. How does that square with the racial prejudice in their DNA? Or were they just the useful idiots he knew he could manipulate to get him elected?

And what about all the violence, the rampant murders in Chicago which have significantly increased since Obama took office? He obviously doesn’t give a rip about his fellow blacks being slaughtered by each other, otherwise he would actively work to stop it. After all, he is an experienced Chicago-based community organizer well taught by the notorious anti-American Marxist community organizer, Saul Alinsky.

Zero-Hedge has reported that the violence in Chicago today is the worst that it has been in twenty years. To put those numbers into perspective,the Chicago Tribune reported that Chicago recorded over 20 percent more murders in 2016 than New York and Los Angeles combined, despite having a fraction of the population.

This failed “leader” seems to thrive on conflict and self-gratification. Obama has no qualms about taking more tax money from hard working Americans so he can take excessive numbers of lavish vacations. The total so far comes to about $85 million. He breaks the record of any president for insulting Americans and undermining our American way of life.

Obama is doing everything he can to make it difficult for president-elect Trump to successfully undo the damage he has done to the United States (and the world).

Prophetically, we know Israel is going to take a beating before she is forever freed from Satan’s stalking and manipulations. According to Scripture Israel is in for a rough ride until our Jewish Messiah returns at the Second Coming. But she will also get some major assistance from the Lord Himself to soften the blows made against her in these last days.

I see all of the most recent anti-Israel and Anti-American events as leading up to the battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 (the Gog-Magog war). This particular war is given the most detailed description of any prophesied future war recorded in the Bible. It is at that time that God will send His fury and intense judgment upon Islam and Russia.

The Russian-led Muslim coalition will not be able stand up against God’s supernatural intervention and succeed in their quest to harm Israel. The entire world will be astonished at how Israel will be protected from the invaders; it will be very obvious that God stepped in to save Israel.

“‘It will come about on that day, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,’ declares the Lord God, ‘that My fury will mount up in My anger.In My zeal and in My blazing wrath I declare that on that day there will surely be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.


The fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all the creeping things that creep on the earth, and all the men who are on the face of the earth will shake at My presence; the mountains also will be thrown down, the steep pathways will collapse and every wall will fall to the ground.


I will call for a sword against him on all My mountains,’ declares the Lord God. ‘Every man’s sword will be against his brother. With pestilence and with blood I will enter into judgment with him; and I will rain on him and on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, a torrential rain, with hailstones, fire and brimstone.


I will magnify Myself, sanctify Myself, and make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know that I am the Lord”’ (Ezekiel 38:18-23).


“‘And I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the mountains far north and bring you against the mountains of Israel. Then I will knock the bow out of your left hand and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand.


And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am theLord So I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel, and I will notlet themprofane my holy name anymore. Then the nations shall know I am the LORD, the Holy One of Israel’” (Ezekiel 39:2, 3, 6-7).

It stands to reason that after the epic Gog-Magog incursion, Bible prophecy will accelerate at an even greater pace. Because of God’s astounding miracles many people will realize their need for salvation.

God’s supernatural intervention will be so intense that it will make the Exodus pale in comparison. Those who receive Christ as their Savior because of witnessing God’s miracles may even gain a healthy fear, and reverence for the Holy One of Israel.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding” (Proverbs 9:10).

With Russia (Magog) destroyed, and Islam seriously marginalized (“them that dwell carelessly in the isles”)—there will be a vacuum which the globalists could quickly act upon and fill to accelerate their overt one world government agenda.

Regarding the UN’s recent assault on Israel, in response to Resolution 2334, president-elect Donald Trump tweeted: “As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20.” That may be so in a variety of ways. The Trump Administration may find it difficult, if not impossible, to reverse resolution 2334. But “nothing is impossible with God” (Luke 1:3).

In my opinion, Obama’s tactics against Israel will backfire on him because there are options president-elect Trump can take as soon as he is inaugurated on January 20, 2017—which would work in favor of Israel and U.S./Israel relations, and against all those who work against Israel and the United States.

The Trump Administration could take a series of actions outside of multilateral institutions to limit the effects of resolution 2334. As soon as Trump is inaugurated Congress could pass, and President Trump would sign, a declaration that the previous administration did not have authorization (mandate) to allow the UN Security Council resolution to pass. [1]

The U.S. Embassy could be immediately moved to Jerusalem, as president-elect Trump has suggested many times. The Trump Administration could adopt legislation that would impose sanctions on European government and private entities that engage in Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activities against Israel, and take steps to discourage the Palestinian Authority from continuing to attempt to mobilize the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Israel.

The Trump Administration could also impose targeted cuts of U.S. funding to the United Nations aimed at hindering the U.N.’s support of actions favorable to Palestinians and their narrative. The incoming administration could also reaffirm the letter from President George W. Bush to Israeli Prime Minister Sharon in which Bush reportedly recognized that major settlement blocs will remain part of Israel under any peace treaty.

While it may not be possible to fully rescind resolution 2334, the Trump Administration can take strong steps to prevent some of the resolution’s implications for the United States and Israel in the international arena. [2]

Everything unfolding now is all part and parcel of the end-times scenario. Attempts to divide the Land of Israel are certainly underway, but we can take great solace knowing that Israel is destined prophetically to become the preeminent nation in the millennial kingdom and for eternity. For now, and until Messiah Jesus returns, Israel must battle through and continue to fight for her rights.

It is no accident that we have a new pro-American president-elect who is totally sold-out for Israel, and also happens to be a very savvy experienced negotiator. I think president-elect Trump has some creative surprises for those who think they can wipe Israel off the map. (And I would also say, so does God.)

God is working behind the scenes. He is ever-faithful and the time is coming soon when He will be finished with dealing with the Church, and his entire focus will be on Israel and the fulfillment of all the final prophecies directly related to her—so she can become that preeminent nation eternally, and inherit all the land promised to her in the Abrahamic Covenant.

Israel’s glorious future is guaranteed. It is inevitable, regardless of Satan’s non-stop attempts to destroy her. And as I have said before, and as I say in the opening pages of my new book, Israel’s Guaranteed Future Glory:


Israel is the center of the earth where God’s covenant people live and belong. I would not be surprised if right now at this very moment—the LORD God of Israel has His heavenly host holding flaming swords, securely guarding and protecting every inch of Israel’s borders in the spiritual realm.

The year 2017 may very well prove to be one of the most exciting years in American history, and for Bible prophecy. Be sure you know the Lord Jesus Christ and are born-again from above. We should never lose sight of God’s admonition to place Him first in our lives.

And be sure to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem” (Psalm 122:6a). We know there will be no true peace for Jerusalem (or the world) until Jesus returns, so when we pray for the “peace of Jerusalem” we are essentially praying for His return.

Even so come, Lord Jesus.
