Nuclear Deal With Iran: A Spiritual Suicide

Nuclear Deal with Iran – A Spiritual Suicide

Essay by Jelena Anderson

What exactly were the world leaders, who signed this ridiculous deal with Iran, thinking? Let’s face it, is there anything good that can come out of this deal? Anything at all?

The Obama Administration seems to have just rolled over and offered Iran our jugular. Did anybody even ask for the release of Pastor Saeed, an American citizen, who has been in captivity for three years because of his Christian Faith.  What about the three other Americans that are held hostage by Iran?  If anything, this should have been something that we got out of this deal, but again this administration failed to free and protect its citizens.

Only a few days ago, Israeli and American flags were burned in Iran, accompanied by cries of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”. That mindset wasn’t going to change simply because we agreed to this nonsense of a deal.

So let’s just call it what it really is – a curse.

The bible is very clear about cursing Israel: “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12:3 NIV)

Did we just curse ourselves by signing this nuclear deal with Iran? Looks like it! We essentially turned our backs on our ally, on Israel, saying “Nah uh, we didn’t just fund the biggest terrorist group on earth, who are out to destroy you. Oh and by the way, should Iran ever want to send a nuclear bomb your way, uh, I guess you’re on your own. Sorry.”

In Numbers 22 there is a story about Balak asking Balaam to come and curse the Israelites, who just came out of Egypt, so that he might defeat them. When Balaam prayed about this request, the Lord told him this: “Do not go with them. You must not put a curse on those people, because they are blessed.”

We just went with Balak (Iran), and put a curse on Israel; by signing that nuclear deal. So not only did we not bless God’s chosen people by standing up for them or even by looking out for them, keeping sanctions in place or ANYTHING really; we went all the way cursing Israel.

The story of Balaam continues, because just like Iran, Balak kept asking and sending messages to Balaam so that he would curse the Israelites. You see, Balak didn’t have the power to do it himself, he needed Balaam to do his dirty work.

Balaam kept praying to God for an answer and ended up going to Balak, but on his journey his donkey kept acting really strange, getting off the road and even crushing Balaam’s foot into a wall.

Why? Because God was angry and sent the angel of the Lord to kill Balaam and only the donkey was able to see the angel with his sword drawn and kept getting out of the angel’s way to save Balaam.

Where is our donkey? Who is going to save America from the wrath of God if we continue down this path?

Could we have stopped this epic mistake? Slowed it down? Prevented it altogether?

Probably so.

Here is the thing:   Islam can be traced back to Abraham’s son, Ishmael, the son he had with Hagar; and when Hagar was pregnant, the angel of the Lord came to her and told her to name the child Ishmael; but he also told her this: “He will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” (Genesis 16:12 KJB). The New Living Translation puts it this way: “This son of yours will be a wild man, as untamed as a wild donkey! He will raise his fist against everyone, and everyone will be against him. Yes, he will live in open hostility against all his relatives.”

In other words, Iran is going to do what Iran is going to do. There won’t be any peace because they don’t want any peace; but we didn’t have to partake in this ridiculous deal!

We choose our own path:  We can either stick with this deal, which is a curse to Israel (and a huge threat to every nation on earth, that doesn’t believe as they do), and we can be cursed as well. Or we can grow a set and appeal this nuclear deal, be a blessing to Israel and be blessed ourselves.

Is that really that hard of a choice?
