No matter what, God's still with Israel

The leader of a Messianic Jewish ministry says even though American voters decided to abandon Israel on November 6, God will not abandon the Jewish state during this current or any future struggle.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made it clear that Israel will no longer tolerate Hamas terrorists launching indiscriminate rocket attacks on innocent Israeli citizens.

But Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, says the re-election of Barack Hussein Obama has sent a clear message to Israel: America is not going to help you.

"I think Israel realizes that she no longer has any kind of a bond with America after the November 6 election," Markell laments. "Israel realizes she's on her own, which the Bible predicted. Zechariah chapters 12 through 14 indicate that in the time of the end, she will be without a friend -- and that's the case now."

But the Olive Tree Ministries founder says there is good news.

"God hasn't abandoned Israel. He does have an end-times plan for her," she asserts. "It involves some harshness, but it also involves salvation as a nation -- though that comes later, during the time of the tribulation."

But Markell fears there will be continued bloodshed in the Holy Land in the immediate future, which could escalate in a big way.
