Pastor Mike Golay is with me today on Facebook. We are here Live from Friendship Church. This is a church on the outskirts of Minneapolis. It’s in Prior Lake? That’s correct. There are actually 2 campuses. How many people attend this church? We have approximately 800 on weekends. We have full youth programs running on Sundays. Wonderful. This is the Prior Lake campus. I just got done teaching twice. A message called “Seek the Things Which Are Above” from Colossians chapter 3:1-2. This was live streamed to the other campus in Shakopee. That is correct. Well, I stole Mike from this church. I am a stolen man. He’s a stolen man. He was the lead pastor of the Shakopee campus. Now he is full-time, here with us, at Behold Israel. So, he’s not only my brother-in-law. I just found out today that Mike was, behind the scenes, working with Campus Crusades on having the Jesus film shown all over Israel in the 1990s. That’s correct. In 1990, prior to your arrival to Israel? Yeah. I watched the Jesus film and I got saved in May of 1990. I am almost 30 years old in faith. I want to believe I am 30 years old, in general but I’m not. But I feel like I’m 30 BC, “before counting” holidays, weekends, and all of that. We’ve got tons of people online, more than 1,000 shares already. This means over 10,000 people are watching us right now. Live from all over the world. I bet most of them are interested in the election results in Israel. I’m gonna talk about it now. Then, Mike, I would like you to give us the American perspective of that which happened in Israel. First of all, I need you to understand that Israel is a parliamentary democracy. We’re not voting for a president. We’re voting for a party in the parliament. The leader of that party, if it is the biggest one automatically, or almost automatically, receives the mandate from the President of Israel to form a government. Unfortunately, we’re not bipartisan. We don’t have 2 parties. We have about 10. Therefore, there is no way one party can form the government. Because you need… If you have a parliament of 120 members. You need at least 61 seats to be able to rule, pass laws, and do it effectively. Anything less than that will not give you a chance to rule. Because the government will fall. Benjamin Netanyahu was the leader of the largest party until a week ago, less than a week ago. Israel tried in April to vote. We reached some sort of a deadlock. Because what happened is that we thought Netanyahu won. He thought he won. The world thought he won. Because the right wing in Israel had 65 seats, which means, “we’ve got a government”. What we did not take into consideration is that one, one person, who is the leader of a party. That had only 5 seats, decided that he hates Netanyahu. Then he decided, “I am not going to be part of that government”. He is traditionally right wing. Flipped. His name is Avigdor Lieberman. Avigdor Lieberman used to be the personal assistant to Netanyahu for many years. For some strange reason, bad blood… I’m not sure what it is. But Lieberman decided, “I’m not going to let Netanyahu form a government.” Netanyahu had only 60 seats. You cannot form a government. Israel had to go to a 2nd round of elections. In the 2nd round of elections, it was enough time for the media to inject into the Israelis so much garbage. And so much propaganda that was paid for by globalists, not even from Israel. Eventually, when you repeat the lie enough times, people eventually believe it. Do you know who said that? Hitler. Eventually the people of Israel, in the 2nd round. When they went to vote, did not give to Netanyahu the same number of seats he had in the 1st one. From 35 he dropped to 31. The other rival party, which is actually a conglomerate of 3 different parties, led by 3 different generals. Look how strong Netanyahu was. It needed 3 different generals to form together a party that will be big enough, to be bigger than his. They won 33 seats and he has 31 seats. Now we have a problem. Netanyahu, not only that, he doesn’t have 61 behind him. But he is not even the leader of the largest party anymore. That means that probably next week the president of Israel is going to give his rival, Benny Gantz, the mandate to form a government. I am not that alarmed by this. Let me tell you what I am alarmed about. Israel is… The Israeli political system is comprised of 4 different chunks: Right, Left, Arabs, Religious Jews (ultra-orthodox Jews). The religious Jews, almost traditionally, go with the Right because the Right is conservative. The Arabs never want to go with anyone. Because they are even against the State of Israel, as a Jewish state to begin with. Suddenly, out of the blue, an hour ago. For the 1st time in the history, I think, or at last in the last 30 years or so. The Arabs, who have 13 seats, went to the President of Israel. They said, “We actually want Gantz to be the Prime Minister”. Actually, they said… because they are now happy. Somebody… They are now a big power and they might be even part of the government. They said, and I just read it a few seconds ago. They said, “We are not a guest in this country. We are the landlords.” You see, when a former government, using people who are praising terrorists, supporting terrorists, hating Israel as a Jewish state. Now, they are even saying, “We are the landlords.” I don’t want to see a government like that in my own country. We didn’t come back after 2,000 years for this. With Netanyahu… The last 10 years of Netanyahu are the best years of Israel’s history as a state. From a country that was bankrupt, we are the 8th most powerful nation in the world. We are one of the most powerful economies, regionally at least. We have the strongest currency. We have the lowest unemployment. We have a great stock market. We are the most innovative country you can think of. Listen, we extract water from the air. You sneeze, we drink. We have the most sophisticated way to milk cows. Our cows are the most productive cows in the world. Sounds weird, huh? Jewish cows, they complain probably all the time. Ladies and gentlemen, Israel is the most innovative when it comes to: financial technology, agricultural technology, cyber technology, military equipment (which is mostly defensive equipment), by the way. The iron dome and all of that, that is defensive systems. Ladies and gentlemen, Netanyahu brought Israel to a status where all the leaders of the great countries in the world want to be friends with him. He has seen Putin more times than Putin saw any other leader of a non-Russian speaking country. He has seen Putin in the last 3 years, 11 different times. He has seen Trump more than any other Western leader has ever seen the President of America. Ladies and gentlemen, Netanyahu is respected and Israel is respected by most of the world. Even our rivals are now coming to Israel to seek our help and our opinion. When it comes to how to defeat the Iranians, when it comes to their threat. Two weeks ago, the Lord gave me a word. I was with my group by the Sea of Galilee. It was Sunday, 2 weeks ago on Sunday. The Lord gave me a word from the book of Deuteronomy chapter 32. This is part of what we call… Moses was writing a song. In chapter 32 of Deuteronomy… Excuse me, I know that for you, guys, it’s from the other side. This is the right way. Deuteronomy 32, just 2 chapters before the very end. It says in Verse 15. It describes Israel. How Israel… God blessed them so much. But then everything got so good that Israel, flipped. Look at what it says. It says this. I am reading from 13, “He made Israel ride in the heights of the earth that he might eat the produce of the fields. He made him draw honey from the rock and oil from the flinty rock. Kurds from the cattle and milk of the flock with fat of lambs. And rams of the breed of Bashan and goats with the… choicest wheat. And you drank wine of the blood of the grapes. But… Jeshurun, is a poetic name of Israel. Israel means that the “son of the upright”. Jeshurun grew fat and kicked. That’s the verse. People got so complacent. Everything is so good. And then “pow”. They kicked. Let’s see someone else. Let’s try something else. They don’t appreciate how good it is. When the Lord gave me that… It’s very funny because I first received that word when I was thinking about America. And then I realized, Oh, he is actually talking about Israel. He may talk about America later. But I’m about to see it happening in my own country. For the longest time, I must say that I was a very proud Israeli thinking, “The world is being deceived. But we know the schemes of the enemy. And it’s not going come to our country.” I even have a message online. You can see “The Deception of the Nations”. I was very happy that my own nation didn’t fall into the trap of the globalists and the progressive liberal lunatics. That… They don’t care about nationality, about borders. They don’t care about economy. They don’t care about free market. They don’t care about work, so you can eat. They don’t care about those things. I thought, mmm, interesting. It came to me and I realized, “I am going to watch it.” It’s coming. This is going to happen. And lo and behold with a heavy heart I was listening to the news, last Tuesday. And sure enough, I realized, “this is it”. Now, how do I know? How did I know that we are in trouble? Two days before, my own children, who grew up with us knowing exactly my political stand, why and all of that. My wife said, “Just so you know, our two oldest ones, they might even not…’ For the first time they are voting. They might even not vote for Netanyahu.” What! You should have seen me, like smoke came out of my ears. So first of all, I went down to speak with my son, Ariel. And I said, “You know what you are going to vote.” That’s how I started. Let me tell you why. Then of course, I explained to him the schemes of the devil, and all of that. That it’s all… Just like they tried to do with Trump. They first of all portrayed him as a Russian KGB. And then it’s easier to impeach him. But it didn’t stick. That Russan thing didn’t stick. Now they’re trying recession. And if not recession then try something else. They always come up with something. By the way, just so you know. The next thing is global warming and climate change. He’s going to be taking a lot of heat. Because his UN speech is not going to be all about the global warming. It’s going to be about religious persecution, which the world could care less. They are more into the penguins, rather than nuns, that they call penguins. I want to tell you that when I realized that my own children were affected by their friends. That are affected by the media that is injecting so much poison. I knew that if my own fortress, my own house, had been breached. How much more all the rest that don’t know better? And I knew it wasn’t going to be good. Sure enough, we woke up on Wednesday morning to a new reality. Now, the only good thing is that the other one doesn’t have a majority as well. Now, we don’t know what to do. This one doesn’t have 61. Because Lieberman is not exactly going with the other one. But he’s not going with Netanyahu as well. Lieberman wants a unity government without the ultra Orthodox and without the Arabs. Well, it’s not going to happen. It’s not going to happen because you cannot say, “these people are disqualified”. The other big party, of 33 seats, say we don’t mind having unity government with the Likud Party. As long as Benjamin Netanyahu is not the Prime Minister. So, it’s a personal thing. The funny thing is that the Likud Party voted, in the Democratic primary elections, for Netanyahu, as their Leader. The other party never had the primaries, never had a primary, never had democratic elections. They preach to us about democracy while they never had one. So we’re facing very big challenges. Netanyahu doesn’t have good cards in his hands right now. Now, Mike, I told you that originally I thought about Deuteronomy 32:15 about America. I will be honest with you. Every time I see the debates of the Democratic Party candidates, I’m not sure if what I see is real. Or if it’s Saturday Night Live or something? It cannot be real that people will talk like that. But help me understand. I am not American, you are. I am Israeli and usually… Help me to understand. Do you see that happening in America? It is real in many places. We scratch our heads as believers and as conservatives. But the spiritual warfare of this video alone with the information that we are releasing especially what you’re about to hear right now. It is an exposing of the diabolical scheme of what we know will happen in the end times. As the one world comes together in a so called globalism or a progressiveness. None of these people are ashamed to admit open borders. They are unashamed to admit that we should be fast and ready to abort children. They are ready to admit, without any shame, without any shame that we should be godless. Or have everybody worship their own god within their own system. And tolerate levels of immorality that we’ve never seen in history before. It is ironic that Christianity, or believers in Jesus, have to be singled out as one of the people that are of the enemy. Mmm, interesting, isn’t it? So, you have this globalist agenda. I think Trump is anomaly. For those of you who are familiar with the reforms of Josiah, King Josiah, he was only the temporary patch. For what we saw as the inevitability of the hearts of the people latching themselves onto idols and paganism. Today we have the prediction of the Bible that has said there will be a globalism of shared beliefs, values and culture. My question to you, back to you Amir, is we are seeing it happen here. Will Trump get re-elected? He is the Josiah. We will see if he gets re-elected. But what’s happened in Israel with this kind of globalistic mentality of, “Let’s have change”. As Netanyahu has been paying the bills with securities. He has provided security. He has provided safety. He has provided leadership. The economy is booming. The country is successful. For us, from an American perspective, we were hoping that this would work. Because we have plans to establish firm security in the Middle East. Now, it looks like all of that may be up in arms. We don’t even know what our next election will hold in terms of the globalists and the progressives gaining power over here. Can you only imagine what will happen if that happens here and Israel being global? It sets us up for very big tolerance for a “peace process” in the world. I just read yesterday that during Trump’s presidency, the number of abortions in America was the lowest in 30 years. Yeah… See? See, the globalists don’t like that. No, they don’t like that. But my point is this. God is in full control. We know that. Bible prophecy… As much as I love you, Americans. And I do love you with all of my heart. But I can’t find America in the Bible. In fact, let me say something on that. Okay. Just because America isn’t in the Bible, in the end times. It doesn’t mean that they are destroyed. It just means they are irrelevant. Absolutely. That is why I mentioned that. Because it’s inevitable that Israel will be attacked. We know that Ezekiel is telling us that. It’s inevitable that America will not be there to help Israel. Remember those 2 things. We are so excited about talking, explaining, and teaching how soon Ezekiel prophecy is going to come to pass. But we tend to forget that for Ezekiel’s prophecy to be fulfilled, Israel has to be strong, prosperous, yet vulnerable. Because the enemy will attack. As long as there is a leader that they don’t respect they will come out of their holes and try. When there is one that is strong… And by saying strong… Listen, Netanyahu is still in power. In the last 8 hours, we struck twice in Iraq and we struck Iranian targets twice. One is al-Anbar in the western part of Iraq, and one is just north of Baghdad. We just did while you were singing in the 1st service. It was already the 2nd strike. Early this morning we had the 1st. As we speak, there are riots brewing in Egypt that jeopardize Sisi’s government right now. Al-Sisi is a general and military that became president after Morsi was taken out of power. Remember, in 2011 the Egyptians toppled Mubarak. The accusation was corruption. It was probably genuine, in the beginning. But those who took a ride on this were the Muslim Islamic or the Muslim Brotherhood. Then came the moment when they went to vote. The Muslim Brotherhood won and Morsi became the president. Immediately he started getting rid of all those who were in his way. He became the fierce enemy of Israel that was almost threatening to cancel the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt from 1979. And believe it or not, he was… He was embraced by the Obama administration: Knowing he’s Islamic Muslim brotherhood and knowing that he’s a terrorist. He preaches for terrorism. He’s hosting terrorists. It’s interesting because when al-Sisi took over 2 years later. The Obama administration didn’t want to seem him. They didn’t want to talk to him and thought that he was an illegitimate leader. Although he brought Egypt back on track. However, new accusations, right now are rising against al-Sisi and all of his military generals. But in Egypt, we have a new rule right now. That you cannot demonstrate against the government. There are detectives and spies all around Tahrir Square in Cairo. So what happened yesterday is something very interesting. The public knowing that they cannot demonstrate. What happen is that they went to a soccer game. There’s 2 different soccer teams. After one of them, supposedly won, they came to the Square to celebrate. They pulled out anti-Sisi flags and banners. They were there already, 1,000s of them. Now they started the demonstration. They deceived the government. Then, simultaneously, riots started not only in Cairo but in Suez, Port Saeed, and in other places. Al-Sisi has a great challenge right now. Now, Trump administration does not want to see him fall. Because he’s the only thing stable there. If they will run towards elections now the Muslim Brotherhood will once again take over. The same challenge is also happening now in Jordan, with the King of Jordan. So our neighborhood is so unstable. This is why I thought we really need stability in Israel. But, you see, when our neighborhood is not stable. And Israel, itself, is not stable. That’s the right time to strike. Therefore, I am seeing the days coming ahead of uncertainty. I pray that the rapture will preceed the invasion into Israel by Russia, Iran, Turkey, Sudan, Libya. All the players of the Ezekiel 38 war. Mike, do you have more? Yeah. Months ago, I had the privilege to meet Donald Trump and shake his hand. It was a small group environment. He shared his vision for the country. I remember him having a page and it had with bullet after bullet after bullet. Lines of statements that he had accomplished on behalf of the United States. Trump loves this country. Netanyahu loves your country. We have a bunch of other countries in elections where this swing has shifted. From globalism to more of a conservative nationalist in the best interest of the country itself. I can say that Trump, Netanyahu, some of these other people, are temporary. We are looking at the Bible. We know what it says. We know that in the end times that the globalists and the “shared” culture, beliefs and values systems that go across borders unashamed. We said that already and you can see it everywhere. Look at our Democrats. Look at all these people and think: They are the meal; Obama was just the appetizer. Believe me. Trump is trying to hold this back. The nations of the world are looking at the strong people and they will not act. They won’t act militarily, or sociologically, or even economically until they can find somebody. Like past presidents we’ve had, like Obama, who will compromise or even give beyond our capacity. If Israel becomes weak after this next election. And they are comfortable in the land, as it says in the scriptures. Then it is likely, perhaps, in our lifetime that there will be an invasion from the north. I actually don’t even doubt it. That it is going to be in our lifetime. I think it’s going to be sooner than we think. But I will tell you this. I will tell you that I am thinking about it. When I saw the results, I was shocked. But then I was shocked that I was shocked. Why should I be shocked? When the Bible tells me that Israel will be invaded. Why should I be shocked? When the Bible tells me that America is irrelevant for the help and rescue of Israel. No one, no one is going to help Israel, but God. And even God is not going to send America. He is going to, what? Earthquake. Hail Stones. I mean, it is going to be like… And I’m telling you, Mike, Islam will have its biggest crisis ever. Yes. Why? Because it’s not going to be a conventional victory over Israel. Because Israel is not going to win because Israel is strong militarily. People around the world will see a divine intervention in favor of Israel against Turkey and Iran. That represents the Sunni and the Shiite parts of Islam that want to take over this country. I can think of the millions, or hundreds of millions of Muslims that, again, see that they lost. And they will ask themselves one question. Are we even holding the right thing? I’m telling you that this is exactly how the enemy works. Because that’s when the new world government will give them, or the New World… The Bible says that the spirit of the Antichrist is already at work. The spirit of lawlessness… They will be introduced to a new religion: of do good, be good, say good, all is good. And that’s… Listen, Revelation doesn’t talk about Islam. It speaks of a global religious system. I believe the Ezekiel campaign will help bring the whole world to that particular point where they will adopt something neutral. Because they cannot explain that which happened. We are in phase 1 of that. Amir and I both know and this is something you will not hear in the news. I personally sat in a Bible study with five Afghani men that had converted from Islam to Christianity. And guess who was disciplining these 5 men through the Internet? It is an Israeli living in Israel through the Internet. We will not disclose his name. We will not disclose the identity. You also need to know that according to the Afghanis. They are saying there’s a lot of Afghanis that are coming to faith. Or the opposite. They are going towards a globalist culture trying to get their lives aligned with the new world order, the new values. And they are discontent with the mullahs. It’s happening all over the Middle East. Iran has a big, big problem with a lot of its own people not trusting the mullahs anymore. So if you think Islam is strong and a threat? It’s actually beginning to become fragmented. They’re losing to globalist mentality in their own country. You are an American citizen saying these words in the state of Minnesota. And you guys sent Omar to Congress, not me. You know what I mean? You are an American and Minnesotan… And you had globalists vote in a bunch of losers… I know, I know! We are in the same boat. My point is, look at this. You are standing here understanding the vulnerability of our countries, of your country and mine. Knowing that the people are blind and knowing that the people are brainwashed. And knowing that the rampant, brainwashed and (excuse me for my French) stupidity is just unbelievable. I’m dedicated to, not only, teach the Word of God in every way possible. Because the enemy counts on biblical illiteracy. The enemy counts on the fact that you don’t know the Bible. You will never know because nobody teaches you. Even pulpits in America don’t teach the Bible anymore. So it is all over the world. I’m telling you that if you want in these last days to be able to comprehend what is going on, to make sense of what’s going on, to be strong and to hang on. This is it. This is the Iron Dome. This is the Arrow Rocket. This is the nuclear option. This is everything. This is it. I’m telling you, folks. If you are not in the Word, you will be in the world. I have a little assignment for my people that is simply this. Go to Ezekiel 36 and in one sitting, in one sitting, read through 39. Read Ezekiel 36 through 39. Look at what’s happened in 1947 with the resuscitation of the state of Israel. Look at what the language is there. When you get to 37 and 38, take the words Ezekiel uses and align them with modern day cultures and countries. And you tell me, you tell me, after reading that, we are not living in that right now. I want to encourage all of you. Listen, it is in my own house. I could see that my own fortress was breached with the doubts and the lies of the enemy. Watch where your children are being taught. Remember, remember the enemy is so sneaky. He will present… The Bible says that the devil presents himself as an angel of light. I mean, they are going to tell you that what they vote for is actually for a noble cause. It’s a good cause. Let’s share the fortune and the wealth. You work and I don’t work. Give me your money. Good. Every day they are going to tell you, it’s equality. They are going to tell you, it’s justice. Borders are not necessary because we are all citizens of the world. So, why are you coming to my country? Well, because we’re all citizens of the world. So, how come I don’t want to go to your country? No, we are all citizens of the world. They will put you to sleep. Listen, I want to tell you this. It’s only going to get worse. I mean, these are the bad news. Yeah. No, we know… we knew it. We know it’s good news because we know the end. We know who wins. We have to remember the reason God gave us the end of the story. It is so that we will hold on to it. Jesus said, “Hey, we are going to cross to the other side.” It’s not: maybe, could be, possibly. Let’s cross to the other side. Now did he say, “Let’s have a storm-less journey?” No, then the storm came and they thought they were perishing. And they said, ‘Master, don’t you care?’ And he says, ‘Don’t you have faith? I told you, we are going to make it to the other side.'” Look, there are storms coming, big storms. But remember, Christianity is not the absence of problems or troubles. But Christianity is the presence of Christ. If he’s in your boat, you will make it to the other side. If he is not in your boat, make sure he is. That’s the only way the believers will manage to go through all of this. “In this world, you will have tribulation, but be good cheer.” Jesus said. “For I have overcome this world.” Mike, would you do us the honor and finish with a prayer? Yeah, let’s pray. For those of you listening online, pray with me. Maybe something has caught your heart and you don’t know if you’re ready. If you died right now, can you honestly say that you would go to heaven to be with the Lord Jesus? You do not gamble with your soul. Do not roll the dice with your soul. Come clean. Just come clean with me, right now. And say, Lord Jesus, I ask for your forgiveness for my sins. I ask that you come into my heart as my Lord and Savior, right now. Show me how to walk with you. For all of us though, Lord, as believers give us the confidence in you to set our mind on things above. And give us that confidence to live right here, right now. Appointed at such a time as this to disseminate the truth amidst all of the lies to win more people to you. Give us wisdom. Give us creativity. Lord, may your Kingdom grow faster now than it ever has. All over the world, despite all of these tendencies. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen. I would like to, if you stand up. I will finish with the Aaronic Blessing in Hebrew followed by the one in English. I was told yesterday at Jan Markell’s conference, “We love your Aaronic Blessing. But could you do it slower, please?” So I’m gonna try and do it slower than I normally do. Okay, let’s pray. Yevarechecha Adonai Ve’yishmerecha, Ya’er Adonai panayv eylecha vi’chuneka, Yissa Adonai panayv eylecha ve’yaseym lecha shalom. The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious. The Lord lift up his countenance towards you and give you peace. In Jesus name. Amen. Thank you.
