ISRAELI ELECTION RESULTS – 22 Jan 2013

Shalom from a divided land and people.

Election results from today’s voting for the next Israeli government are indicating that the large nationalist coalition has been significantly reduced. The current Prime Minister — and the probable next PM — will not have the large and commanding coalition as he had expected just  under three months ago when he and the other leading party at that time merged, and will need to form a coalition with others who challenge him personally, or else his political focus.  At that time, October 30, 2012, I posted here,

“Netanyahu referred to rumors that Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman would succeed him, saying, ‘I heard talk of inheritances in recent days.  I have news for everyone: I plan to lead Israel for many more years, as will Likud’, he added.

Naturally speaking, this merger does not bode well for the Messianic community in Israel of believers in Yeshua/Jesus as Messiah; but, on the other hand, our God can use what may seem right in the sight of man to begin to open his eyes to spiritual realities.  Pride comes before a fall.

‘”Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit”, declares YHVH of Hosts!’  Israel’s hope is realized in the one to whom the kingdom belongs:  “‘A ruin, a ruin, I will make it.  This also will be no more until He comes whose right it is, and I will give it to Him!”  (Ezek 21:27 Eng; Gen 49:10; Ps 2)

The true heir of Israel’s leadership is Yeshua. (Mt 21:38; Mk  12:7; Lk 20:14)  ‘Even so, Come, Lord Jesus!'”
