Ben Peters: "America and Israel: A New Year, a New Era of Hope and a Time for a New Vision"

Ben Peters
Dec 28, 2016

Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:

Besides the Lord's Church, that is, the Body of Christ, there are few countries with greater importance right now than Israel and the United States.


If you've listened to today's prophets and read the Word of God much, you know that Israel is the Apple of His Eye and it was THROUGH ISRAEL, a Jewish Carpenter, Jesus (Yeshua) who because the Savior of the World.

God does not change His mind about a nation and HE NEVER REJECTED ISRAEL. Sometimes God allowed discipline but God never turned His back on His beloved Israel.

The most powerful nation on earth, the United States of America, is one of Israel's strongest allies. We support them but beyond that, BECAUSE the United States is a friend to Israel, because of God's promises to bless those who bless Israel – the United States has become what we are today.

Lately some have turned their back (or nearly done so) on Israel. The upcoming new President has expressly voiced that the United States will once again become a strong supporter of Israel. That is one VERY significant reason we are about to enter very good times in the USA...because God is going to bless us for that stand.

Read this word by Ben Peters to get an even greater sense of what I've just written. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

The Significance of Jeremiah 33 Today

Do numbers ever talk to you? They talk to me all the time. Yesterday, after several other numbers spoke to me, I encountered "333." Of course, that reminds me of Jeremiah 33:3, which I and many other people have memorized. However when I saw it, I felt like I was supposed to take a closer look, and God would show me something new. And did He ever! I believe very strongly that God is speaking to us in this particular time in history from this well-known passage.

The first important thing to note was that God gave Jeremiah this word while he was still in prison, but the word didn't talk about him getting out of prison. It was so much bigger than that. The third verse simply says, "Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know." It's a verse we have applied scores of times in many different situations. The context of this verse, however, is very interesting and relevant today.

In the current political "mega-shift" going on, there are two important cities in the spotlight. One of course is Washington, DC. The other is Jerusalem, Israel.

Here's verse four: "For thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning the houses of this city and the houses of the kings of Judah, which have been pulled down to fortify against the siege mounds and the sword..."

Please note the word "houses," and the phrase, "pulled down."

Our Application Now

1. Jerusalem: The hot issue is about Israeli settlements or new houses. It's also about land for peace. In past decades, Israel has abandoned its settlements for the sake of peace, but the peace did not happen. Now the United Nations and the USA administration, having abandoning Israel, have voted to condemn Israel for building new houses on its land, declaring it to be the property of Palestinians. Of course throughout history, Israel's enemies have come into Jerusalem and torn down its houses and synagogues and its temple. Jerusalem is a city fought over like no other city in the world.

2. Washington, DC: The hot issue is the change coming to our government's important houses: The White House and the houses of Congress – The House of Representatives and The Senate. The campaign slogan: "Drain the Swamp" has put fear in the hearts of many politicians and "kings" who have used these "houses" to build their own "houses." Left unchecked, they have become corrupted and never held accountable for their actions as long as they submitted to their political "bosses." Their houses could and should now be "pulled down."

Verse five talks about how God was judging Jerusalem for their sinful ways, which certainly has had some application to both Jerusalem and Washington, DC. However, we are going to look now at the prophetic verses beginning with verse six, which I believe have much to say to the modern city of Jerusalem and the State of Israel as well as to Washington DC, and the United States of America.

"Behold, I will bring it health and healing: I will heal them and reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth. And I will cause the captives of Judah and the captives of Israel to return, and will rebuild those places as at the first." Jeremiah 33:6-7

These two verses promise several things: healing, peace and truth, as well as the restoration or rebuilding of what had been destroyed. It reminds me that the nation of Israel and the city of Jerusalem have been rebuilding for some time now and that they are still fighting for the privilege of living in peace with their neighbors.

They have also been waiting for the "truth" to be known on the earth. They are not the evil doers in the Middle East. They have a tiny piece of real estate compared to the vast regions owned by Arabs and Muslim nations. They have never attacked their neighbors unprovoked since becoming a nation in 1948. But they have been attacked mercilessly by terrorist organizations and protected by Muslim governments who want to take away their God-given sliver of land.

America and Israel's Faith in God

It also reminds me that our incoming President Trump campaigned on restoring greatness to America, as well as restoring Jerusalem to its status as Israel's capital city.

Verse eight promises a cleansing and a pardoning of Israel's sins, iniquities and transgressions. Then God speaks about the coming blessings, happening simultaneously with His cleansing. Verse 9 says:

"Then it shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it." Jeremiah 33:9

There are two nations on earth that have been known for their faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They are Israel and America. Israel's ties to their God are well documented in Scripture, but the USA also has faith in God at its core. From the Puritans and Pilgrims, to the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution of the United States and the constitutions of the individual states, to the Pledge of Allegiance, to the "In God We Trust" on our money, to the declaration by the Supreme Court of old that affirmed, "America is a Christian nation," we have been known as a Christian nation.

But our faith has faltered in many ways and we are in great need of a restoration and rebuilding of our founding attitudes and principles and our faith and trust in the Creator, who created all men and women equal with certain inalienable rights. It's time to call on God and let Him show us things we've never seen before in our lifetimes (Jeremiah 33:3).

In the ninth verse quoted above, God promises to bring incredible goodness and prosperity to Israel, which will cause her enemies to tremble and fear. I can see this happening to modern Israel because of America's renewed and strong support for her. I can see as America prospers again, that Israel will also prosper in wonderful ways because as America becomes stronger and more prosperous and respected, other nations will fear to attack Israel.

In many ways, I can see the United Nations Security Council motion condemning Israel actually backfiring because so many Israel-loving Americans and Christians around the world are rising up to stand with Israel and with our new President's pro-Israeli policies. America has the wherewithal to pressure other nations to support Israel or lose their beneficial relationship with the USA. This may be one of the most important assignments of our new "Negotiator in Chief."

But we must conclude with one extremely important point:


Verse 9 which we quoted above, starts out with these words: "Then it shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth."

We often get so excited about God's promises and how they will bless us, we forget that it should really be a whole lot more about Him, His glory and honor, than about us and our blessings. It is also interesting that the first result is "Joy." What He will do for Israel and for America will bring Him great joy. This is very encouraging because as He is blessing us, He feels the joy that a Father feels as He watches His children succeed and prosper.

He will also receive praise and honor around the world as the Gospel goes out and the great harvest is brought in. Multitudes around the world will respond to the love that shines out of many newly empowered and excited saints. They will be empowered by God's blessings and the transfer of wealth from the hands of the enemies of God to the friends of God. I believe the great convergence of many historic events is at hand and we are going to see a huge shift taking place on this planet.

We are living in some of the most exciting days ever and there has never been a better time to practice Jeremiah 33:3. So the next time you see a "333" remember this verse and claim it for you, for Israel and for America. It's time has come. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)
