The Bible's Leviathan Lesson
"In that day the LORD with His hard and great and strong sword will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent,
Leviathan the twisting serpent, and He will slay the dragon that is in the sea....In days to come Jacob shall take root,
Israel shall blossom and put forth shoots and fill the whole world with fruit.
" (Isaiah 27:1...6).
This is a divine prophecy regarding the ultimate full restoration of the nationhood of Israel.
In this
symbolism of Isaiah, the "dragon" represents Satan and the "sea" represents the unbelieving nations of this world –
"But the wicked are like the tossing sea; for it cannot be quiet, and its waters toss up mire and dirt."
Isaiah 57:20.
This is
verified by its same symbolic use in the New Testament's book of Revelation.
"Then I saw an angel coming down from Heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain.
And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years,
and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he might not deceive the nations any longer,
until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be released for a little while.
"
Revelation
20:1-3
So Isaiah's
message here is that only after Satan himself is removed by God from his activities in this world, and his deceptive misrepresentations therefore stopped, that the nation of Israel will then be restored before God
to fulfil His founding promise to faithful Abraham concerning his descendants through Isaac.
In other words, only when Jesus Christ returns in power and Satan is bound (for a 1000-years) — only then!
So sad that those who have not received the Christ seem more in tune with His Word!
This contradicts most of what is believed among Christians today, who have accepted the 1948 founding of the Pharisaic State of Israel as though it is somehow a Biblical restoration of that nation,
even though Orthodox Jewry burns the flag of the Zionist State every year at Purim in protest at its existence.
The
existence of this Zionist State in Palestine has deceived many into thinking it is the Israel of the Bible.
Very sadly,
at one stage, it was taught by some Christian leaders that Jesus would then return "a generation" after the date of the Zionist State's 1948 founding, which was then taught as being '40-years', in other words 1948+40=1988. But He did not come, so they then changed a 'generation' to mean '50-years': 1948+50=1998, but He did not come, for that term "generation", in its own New Testament context (Matthew 24:34), simply refers to the survival of the Jewish race through its future troubled times and has nothing to do with any time period of any kind whatsoever!

of Confusion.

Satanic Deception
The current gross sin of disinheriting Abraham's descendants through Ishmael, the Palestinians, from their land on which they have lived for many centuries, has been tolerated and sometimes even agreed to by deceived believers who walk in ignorance of this instructive guidance which God gave to us more than two thousand years ago – for us to believe and to act accordingly.

Satanic Deception
So, it is
of this direct connection, to the overthrow of Satan himself, at Christ's glorious return, that the prophet Zechariah informed Israel that God had said, concerning the future restoration of their nationhood
"And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy,
so that, WHEN they look on ME, on Him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for Him,
as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over Him, as one weeps over a first-born...
On THAT day
[and not before!] there shall be a fountain opened
for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness.
"
Zechariah 12:10...13:1.
Finally
Christians, please note that, although often used, the Bble says there is no such thing as a "Messianic Jew" as though the term somehow means it is the fulfillment of the spiritually dead religion called 'Judaism' —
"There is neither Jew nor Greek[Gentile], there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female,
for you are all one in Christ Jesus
."
Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.
Galatians 3:28.

Collossians 3:11
So, before the coming of the Kingdom of God in the glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ,
any so-called 'State of Israel' is nothing more than part of a Satanic deception and is therefore to be treated accordingly.
