Who Will Decide the Winner and New King in the March Elections?
As I have stated repeatedly in previous Updates - A mere mortal hoping to predict the outcome of Israeli elections, is like the desire to correctly predict the number of marbles in a 10 gallon transparent glass jar in a drug store window. Which is the reason I said previously I would not talk much about the elections in my future BLOGS. God could tell you how many marbles were in the glass jar and only he knows absolutely who will be the next Prime Minister or “King” of Israel, as well as who will be the last King.
Daniel 2:20-22 – Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:  And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:  He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
Israel’s sound defeats of the Arabs in 1948, 1967, and 1973 has caused the nation to become extremely confident of its expertise and power. It has an attitude much like king Nebuchadnezzar had when he considered his past conquests and kingdom. But it was God who made him king and it was God who could depose him, which he did temporarily. God gave Israel the victories over the Arab nations, and gave it the land on which it now dwells. It is the hand of God that sets up kings and nations as well as bringing them down. Israel is going be driven south into the Negev off of the land that stretches from Dan to Beersheba. God will not restore the woman Israel to that stretch of land for some three and one-half prophetic years (1260 days)
Revelation 12:6 – And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
Daniel 4:28-35 – All this came upon the king Nebuchadnezzar.  At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon.  The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?  While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.  And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.  The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.  And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:  And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?
Israel will return to reclaim the land after 1260 days when it learns the principle of verse 32 – “until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.”
Zechariah 13:9 – And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.
God’s Son, the Messiah of Israel, will be the final King of Israel and of all believers. God has decreed it!
Psalm 2:6-12 – Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.  I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.  Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.  Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.  Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.  Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.  Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
In the not too distant future, 10 Arab kings will attack the nation of Israel and drive one third of the Jewish population into the Negev, “and in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed.”
Daniel 2:42-45 – And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.  And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.  And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.  Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
The great mountain pictures God. Messiah is the stone God cut out of himself by his invisible hands. Messiah is the final King of kings.
Zechariah 14:9 – And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.
All of the expertise of great empires of the past, the Babylonian (gold), the Persian (silver), the Grecian (brass), and Roman (iron), will crash to the ground with the return of Messiah to crush the power of the empire of 10 Islamic nations, whose countries were once occupied by, and part of, the old Roman empire.
This is the kingdom and dominion spoken of in Daniel 2:34, and to which Daniel refers in Daniel 7:13,14.
Daniel 7:13,14 – I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.  And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
Messiah will rule over all the kingdoms of this world, both spiritual and physical, as God’s only begotten Son.
Revelation 11:15 – And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
Revelation 10:7 – But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
I Corinthians 15:51,52 – Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Revelation 11:18 – And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
