On April 19, 2010, Israel celebrated their Independence.  This anniversary date floats from year to year due to their lunar calendar, just as Passover and other feast days do.  In 2010, the “date” of celebrating their “day” of Independence began at sundown on the evening of  April 19th and ended at sundown April 20th.  On this same date, April 19th, Fox News reported:

“The Obama administration is reportedly signaling another major shift in policy towards one of its staunchest allies, Israel, and this shift could change the way it votes at the Security Council.  The change would mean an end to the US’ use of its veto power in the United Nations Security Council when certain anti-Israel resolutions are introduced for a vote.”

On April 20, 2010, only hours after Israel’s 62nd anniversary of the prophetic fulfillment of its nation being restored by God was completed, the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig in the Gulf of Mexico just off the U.S. Louisiana/Mississippi coastline explodes.  Coincidence, or the hand of God’s judgment?

There are so many disasters happening atop one another in the U.S. since this date that it is hard to decide which ones to focus on.    Not long after the rig exploded and I saw what was happening with the oil, I sensed that this was no ordinary “accident”.  Early on, I sensed strongly that this would turn into an uncontrollable disaster economically and ecologically–and it did.  Once I saw the events date connected to what we did to Israel, I knew for certain–why.   I remember vividly what I felt as I listened to Fox News report of this change in America’s support of Israel brought about by Obama and his administration.  I knew for a certainty that God would judge this nation for this stance.  The decision had already been made by the administration, but you will notice that when a thing is announced publicly or acted upon, it opens the door for God to judge it.  Sometimes judgment comes in time, sometimes immediately.  But be assured, God WILL bring judgment upon a man, a people, or an entire nation whose leaders come against Israel.  Let me remind you of Israel’s infamous “Disengagement” of 2005 that our nations leaders pressured her for, and Hurricane Katrina, Rita, and Wilma that came into the Gulf of Mexico and ravaged our nation.  Katrina was born the same day that the last Jew was forcefully removed from their home.  Another coincidence?

Just as we haven’t seen the bottom of this economic downfall, we haven’t seen the bottom of this oil disaster and it’s effects on the U.S. and possibly other countries.  I cringe when I ponder how we have officially entered the hurricane season and what even a mild one could do with the oil that continues to spew into the Gulf.  The ramifications of this disaster on the U.S. and on its economy is going to be devastating.
