In considering spiritual rather than politico-military reasons for the targeting of France – and now Mali too – I claimed in the previous post that prime verses of scripture as well as contemporaneous prophetical insights reveal the real reason for the massacre of 130 in Paris. The reason is likely to be not the French government’s military responses to ISIL in Syria, but its ongoing hostility towards Israel.
And this is not to forget or belittle the continuing attacks in Israel itself, as well as in Nigeria plus the Beirut bombing and the Russian airliner brought down over the Sinai. According to the List of Terror Attacks kept on Religion of Peace website the total number by Muslims since New York’s day of infamy stands at 27,308: so deaths are very much higher!
That first part of my argument used only one scripture because it was the focal emphasis of words from the Lord brought by Neville Johnson. We also revisited prophetic words Nathan Morris brought for New Year 2012 and noticed their accuracy regarding this year’s atrocities. Before demonstrating other scriptures’ relevance and application to what France has done to Israel, let me reconsider first what Nathan stressed and the relevance to yesterday’s news:
“The Lord told me that in the coming days such will be the unfolding of global events that fear will strike the hearts of men…an ever-increasing unrest and a spirit of confusion shall be released upon the world that the hearts of many shall be gripped with fear; the fear of uncertainty and the sense of hopelessness…” (listen from 2:30:00 of this video).
Consider this with yesterday’s headline ‘Paris attacks made me ‘doubt’ presence of God, admits Archbishop of Canterbury’, as in yesterday’s BBC Songs of Praise. (See also The Independent and Daily Mail.) Justin Welby candidly admits the massacre caused him to doubt where God is and why it happened and that it made a “chink in his armour”.
BUT the Press fails to quote him in full – what’s new? In telling presenter Aled Jones of his seeking and engaging the Lord over the issue, Justin was asked, “What answers did He give you?” – he replied:
“He said, “In the middle of it”! And also an answer from the Psalms, Psalm 56 – ‘He stores up our tears in a bottle’. None of our sufferings are lost!”
See also Justin Welby’s official site for his Statement on Paris Attacks, as well as a blog published after this one was posted and in which His Grace explains Why Arguing with God is not the same as not believing in him. Interesting to read because it’s easy to infer from the references to two psalms how much the BBC edited out of the interview. What else would we expect in view of its severely jaundiced and inaccurate coverage of Israel, as monitored by BBC Watch?
What Does the Bible Say?
Here’s a selection of well-known scripture pertinent to France’s situation. Bear in mind that all events in Old (and New) Testaments act as examples ‘for our admonition (upon whom the end of ages have come’ – 1 Cor 10:11).:
1a) The Lord’s promise to Abraham and to his descendants of that everlasting promise:
“I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.
“I will bless those who bless you and curse him who curses you; and in you all families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:2-3 NKJV)
1b) The Angel of the Lord’s prophecy to Hagar about his son Ishmael:
“He shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the land of his brethren.” (Genesis 16:12 NKJV)
2) In a vision to prophet Obadiah the Lord makes his first definitive declaration about ‘The Day of the Lord’ on the divisive hatred the sons of Esau have for those of brother Jacob. It thus applies as a major End-time prophecy to all nations’ treatment of the Jewish nation:
“For the day of the LORD upon all nations is near; As you have done (to Israel), it shall be done to you; your reprisal shall return upon your own head.” (Obadiah 1:15 NKJV)
3) The scenario of how this End-time prophecy is being fufilled today:
“And it shall happen in that day that I shall make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who heave it away will surely be cut to pieces though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.” (Zecharia 12:3 NKJV)
4) The ‘spiritual law of action and reaction’ is outlined in the earliest Christian letter by the hand of Apostle Paul:
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. (Galatians 6:7-8 NIV)

Hence, France’s fundamental problem is its leaders’ rebellion against the Word of the Lord as presented below.
Paris – The Morning After
As recounted earlier, on Saturday 14th November I read online headlines on the massacre in Paris, one of which I realised connected directly into its true cause.
In Koenig’s World Watch Daily I noticed ‘France’s War Against Israel – Caroline Glick’. Editor William Koenig gives this ex-peace negotiator, now Senior Contributing Editor of the Jerusalem Post, the accolade of ‘ne plus ultra’ (none better, perfect example) for her excellence and accuracy of journalism.
Caroline’s article of 20th October (ie. 3 weeks before the attacks) caught my attention and connected right into the weekend’s massacres. She gets right to the core of issues and so I now quote her at length. You may be as appalled by this as I am, so I’d urge you to read her full article by clicking on this sub-head title.:
‘France’s plan to use its position at the UN Security Council to bring about the deployment of international monitors to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem has been condemned by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his ministers as biased, unhelpful and detached from reality.
‘Certainly it is all those things. But France’s decision to use its diplomatic position to advance a plan which, if implemented, would end Israeli sovereignty over Judaism’s holiest site is first and foremost a French act of aggression against the Jewish state.
‘Contrary to what the French government would have us believe, France’s Temple Mount gambit is not an effort to quell the violence. French protestations of concern over the loss of life in the current tempest of Palestinian terror ring hollow.
‘France doesn’t really oppose Palestinian terrorism. To the contrary, it facilitates it.’
Caroline continues by documenting French bankrolling of and conniving with those whose ultimate goal is the eradication of their neighbour:
‘Every year, the French government pays millions of euros, dollars and shekels to Palestinian NGOs whose stated goal is to destroy Israel. Through its NGO agents, France finances the radicalization of Palestinian society (which) makes Palestinian terror inevitable. Much of the current rhetoric used by the Palestinians to reject Israel’s legitimacy and justify violence against Jews is found in strategic documents that France paid Palestinian NGOs to write…’
Over 2010-2013 a consortium of Palestinian Non-Governmental Organisations called NGO Development Center received $6.5 million from France, which ‘paid for the NDC to put together a strategic plan to advance its members’ goals. That French-initiated and financed document includes a list of activities not aimed at promoting peace, enhancing the daily lives of Palestinians, or expanding economic growth.’
‘Rather, the French financed strategic planning document provides a list of activities that the NGO’s will undertake to delegitimize and criminalize Israel and ensure that Palestinians hate the Jewish state and view it as the cause of all their suffering.’
Caroline ‘s expose of France continues in depth. For the second example she refers to an NDC document of 2008 that, ‘required all member groups to ban all “normalization activities with the occupier, [both] at the political-security [and] the cultural [and] developmental levels.”
‘The document went on to call for Israel to be destroyed. No action on the part of any Palestinian entity can be carried out it said, “if it undermines the inalienable Palestinian rights of establishing statehood and the return of refugees to their original homes,” that, is, the immigration of millions of foreign-born Arabs to the ruins of Israel.’
Thirdly, she covers the immense French funding of the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committee which ‘uses racist language to demonize Jews and Israel by among other things assaulting the so-called “Judaization of Jerusalem” and attacking Palestinians who work with Israeli companies….In 2011, PARC sabotaged a trade delegation in France comprised of Israeli and Gazan farmers…Rather than welcome Israel’s actions on behalf of Gaza farmers, PARC organized a boycott of the delegation – causing direct harm to Gazan farmers.
‘…By paying these groups to carry out these sorts of activities, the French government has made clear that far from seeking to advance the cause of peace, its actual goal is to block all prospects of peace between Israel and the Palestinians. These sorts of actions are the norm, rather than the exception in France’s treatment of Israel.
‘And France makes no bones about its hostility towards the Jewish State.’
In the next page Caroline examines how the past year’s support of the PA complements France’s own domestic anti-Jewish policy. Then she presents historical details enabling her to castigate president Holland for his outrageous, grossly discourteous and insulting treatment of PM Netanyahu during his visit to honour the victims of the attacks in Paris last January. Caroline finishes this litany as follows:
‘In the evening after the march, Hollande refused to appear with Netanyahu at the memorial ceremony for the victims of the Hyper Cacher massacre. In a tangible snub, Hollande left the synagogue where it was being held before Netanyahu arrived.
‘In the nine months since the attacks, rather than go after the Islamic communities of France that infect their members with Nazi-like Jew hatred marinated in Koranic dispensations for murder, French authorities have forced French Jewry to live under lock and key. Jewish communal institutions are required to shoulder astronomical security costs as their buildings have come to look more like military garrisons than elementary schools and synagogues.
‘As a French professor writing under the pen name Alain El-Mouchain explained this month in Mosaic Magazine, the French government’s “refusal to identify either the culprits [of anti-Semitic violence] or their [Jewish] victims by their proper names…has perversely combined with the swift posting of police and military guards at Jewish institutions to make Jews feel that at best they have become ‘protected citizens’ in their own country, reinforcing the idea that they are no longer at home in France but are rather a new kind of dhimmi [a minority group that lives at the pleasure of the ruling Muslims].“
‘Through its actions, France has shown that it isn’t even vaguely interested in promoting freedom and peace. The policy of the French government, revealed yet again by its bid to end Israeli control of the Temple Mount, is to delegitimize Israel and curry the favor of jihadists at the expense of the Jews of Israel and of France alike.’
France is also at the forefront of the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israeli businesses thereby adversely affecting Palestinian workers.
France continues to pay the price for its leaders’ decisions and actions.
Therefore, it’s no wonder France holds the record for Jews currently emigrating to Israel. Yet this is in accord with the revelatory word Dr Maurice Sklar received, as follows.:
Prophetic Word at Feast of Tabernacles 2015
Note the following points (emphases added) from what the above messianic Jew says the Lord gave at the start of this year’s Feast of Tabernacles, as copied in this re-post:
1. The Times of the Gentiles are coming to an end. The end of Adam’s dominion time-lease upon earth is nearly over. The time of Jacobs’ Trouble: the Tribulation period is about to begin. BUT HE (JACOB) SHALL BE SAVED OUT OF IT. It is in this time that I will sovereignly cause all the Jews to return to their home, Eretz Israel. I will shake them out like a tablecloth that a lady would take outdoors and shake all the crumbs out of it by flapping it into the wind. But not one crumb will perish. All shall be returned…. Many of my people are hidden in the nations that have descended from the 10 lost tribes. They are not “lost” to Me. I KNOW THEM ALL. They shall return, along with all the descendants of Judah and Levi. No man knows who or where they are, but I DO. The time has come when the rest of the family will come home to the land I promised them.
2. Satan knows that his time is short. War is coming to the Middle East. It will bring every nation into it before it is all over. Israel is my mousetrap, and Jerusalem is the cheese. Israel is also my anvil on which I will judge the nations. Prepare your hearts, for peace will be taken from the earth. For 70 years I gave the Western nations peace and prosperity after World War 2. That was because of what the United States did along with the Allied forces by defeating Nazi Germany and rescuing My people Israel from extermination, and then paving the way for Israel to be reborn as a nation in 1948.
In my humble opinion that prophetic word and its associated one on the Day of the Lord are worthy of reflection and, as with the words in this two-part blog, should be weighed with scripture and the Lord.
If you followed up my reference to Francois X’s remarks in the previous post you would have gained a closer view on the situation by a brother in Christ familiar with the Bible as prophecy.
“The situation in France is more dire than people think” and he mentions the 800 no-go areas that are outside the police force’s ability to enforce the law of the land. [See latest in Daniel Pipes’ personal investigations Muslim no-go zones in Europe?]
Even so, the people’s elected representatives have no excuse whatsoever for very biased and bigoted policies against Israel.
As the above few scriptures attest, we are now witnessing France reaping what it has sown. Its support for anti-Israel terrorism and the downfall of that nation and surrender of its holiest site in Jerusalem has resulted in not only no divine protection against the demonic but also a barbaric targeting by the most extreme Muslim movement, one that copies the military adventures of their faith’s founder and subsequent early leaders.
After planning to get United Nations action against Israel in Jerusalem, president Hollande has petitioned for other nations to join the action against ISIS/ISIL. As Dr John McTernan and others have posited for some years and the wise leader of Jordan now foresees, it looks like we’re now heading into World War Three!
