Stopping a Terrorist Attack

June 29, 2014

I received an email the other day saying that we in the United States are in trouble, and that with all these illegal aliens coming in, the open borders and the like; that the terrorists plan to exploit this and attack us. They are planning an attack right now. They wanted to spread the word for prayer to be made to stop these attacks. Sure, it is a great thing to want to stop another terrorist attack on this nation like 9/11, but there is deception behind this message. There is a spirit out there giving us this warning: but it wants us to pray about treating the symptom (stopping a terrorist attack) while ignoring treating the root cause of all of this. It is a false spirit.

In Jeremiah 28 it says, “Hananiah, the son of Azur the prophet, spoke to me in the house of the Lord in the presence of all the people, saying, ‘Thus speaks the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saying, I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon. Within two full years will I bring again into this place all the vessels of the Lord’s house that Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon took away from this place and carried them to Babylon…Then the prophet Jeremiah said to the prophet Hananiah in the presence of the priests, and in the presence of all the people that stood in the house of the Lord…’Amen: the Lord do so: the Lord perform your words which you have prophesied, to bring again the vessels of the Lord’s house, and all that is carried away captive from Babylon into this place. Nevertheless, hear now this word that I speak in your ears, and in the ears of all the people; The prophets that have been before me and before you of old prophesied both against many countries and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of pestilence. The prophet which prophesies of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known that the Lord has truly sent him.’ Then Hananiah the prophet took the yoke from off the prophet Jeremiah’s neck and broke it. And Hananiah spoke in the presence of all the people saying, ‘Thus says the Lord; Even so will I break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon from the neck of all nations within the space of two full years.’ And the prophet Jeremiah went his way.

“Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet after that Hananiah the prophet had broken the yoke from off the neck of Jeremiah saying, ‘Go and tell Hananiah saying; Thus says the Lord; You have broken the yokes of wood, but you shall make for them yokes of iron. For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; I have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field also.’ Then said the prophet Jeremiah to Hananiah the prophet, ‘Hear now, Hananiah; the Lord has not sent you; but you make this people to trust in a lie. Therefore thus says the Lord; Behold, I will cast you off the face of the earth: this year you shall die, because you have taught rebellion against the Lord.’ So, Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month.”

So, what is the false message here we are hearing from these prophets about terrorists planning an attack against the United States? What is wrong about a warning from God about terrorist attacks?  It is all about where it leads us. Does it lead us to God, or does it lead us away from God? What will we be doing if any terrorist attack fails to come off against us? The answer is, we will be doing the same things we are doing now. We will not be doing the things necessary to put this nation back into putting God first above politics and moral depravity in all levels of our society. We will continue going down this road of certain destruction. We cannot take a detour in turning things around in this country, now. There is no more time for delay. We have to act now to save this nation, and terrorist plans are diverting us from the spiritual problems this nation faces. We are in the fix we are today, because we have separated this nation from God. We are spiritually bankrupt in this country, and the only solution is to repent and turn back to God. He gives us no other possibility to save this nation.

So, let us examine the message of Jeremiah 28 as given above. Hananiah the prophet basically says, “The enemy from without will be stopped, and God will bless us with the return of the vessels of the Lord’s house that were stolen by the Babylonians.” The prophets today are saying, “There is an enemy without that is planning to attack us. We will gather all of God’s people to pray to give us deliverance from these planned attacks, and God will hear us and stop these attacks. (He will bless us with protection from these planned attacks).”

So, at this point the yokes of subjection to terrorist plans against us will be broken just as Hananiah broke the yokes of wood around Jeremiah’s neck. However, Jeremiah was wearing a yoke around his neck for a purpose. It was showing God was placing Israel and other nations under subjection to Nebuchadnezzar. This same spirit that was placing those nations under bondage 2500 years ago is in the White House today, and we are under the president’s yoke of bondage. God does not want these yokes of bondage broken. He will replace any yoke of wood with a yoke of iron. Look and see if Obama has not had is way with us from the beginning. He has, and it will continue. Do not even consider a rebuke by the Supreme Court to mean anything against what Obama plans for us. It will not stop his plans at all.

In Jeremiah 28 it goes on to say, “I have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field also.” The beasts of the field are the terrorists. They are Satan’s tool against us and are being orchestrated by this spirit of Nebuchadnezzar. It is meant to cause chaos and rush in the dictatorship this spirit wants to establish in the United States. Whatever is necessary will be done to bring about this dictatorship. Just watch the attacks against the Republicans coming after the November elections. Watch what happens to any opposition still standing against President Obama. It will not be pretty.

“The prophet which prophesies of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known that the Lord has truly sent him.” (Jeremiah 28: 9). Let us see if we have peace or war. God has said we will serve this master (Nebuchadnezzar). This master only knows war.
