Ezekiel 25:6-7
6 “And the Sovereign Lord says: Because you clapped and stamped and cheered with glee at the destruction of my people, 7 I will lift up my fist against you. I will give you as plunder to many nations. I will cut you off from being a nation and destroy you completely. Then you will know that I am the Lord.”
Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

Chapters 25-32 of Ezekiel are God’s words of judgment on nations surrounding Israel that laughed when Israel fell to the Babylonians.  God judged them not only because of their delight in the destruction of Jerusalem, but they had also failed to acknowledge the one true God or fulfill His purpose for them.  The Ammonites were judged for their joy over the desecration of the Temple (25:1-7), the Moabites because they found pleasure in Judah’s wickedness (25:8-11), the Edomites because of their racial hatred for the Jews (25:12-14), and the Philistines because they sought revenge against Judah for defeating them in battle (25:15-17).  If any of this sounds familiar it is because we are living the same scenario today. The Palestinians danced with joy at the attack on the World Trade Center on 9-11.  And many Moslems cheered when thousands of Americans died that day.  God’s judgment will fall on them and the time is coming soon. Americans are not God’s chosen people, but we support them and that is why this attack happened and why it will happen again.  And just as God judges these nations, God will judge those who come up against His people. Even if it is America.  Do not look for things to get better in the Middle East or for the terrorist attacks to stop on the USA.  It will only get worse in the Middle East and we will be under continual attack until the Lord returns for His Church.  So learn a lesson for what God has already done in the past because it will happen again.  And God always keeps His Word. God’s Word to the children of Abraham in Genesis 12:3 states, “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you. All the families of the earth will be blessed through you.”  Those who support the nation of Israel will be blessed, but those who curse her will be cursed.

Have a God Day!
