Jonathan Cahn: Here’s What the Bible Says About Hamas and Justice

Posted by

Jonathan Cahn says it’s time for the Jews to follow the words of Ezekiel 45 and 46, which tell them to “Remove Hamas [violence] and execute justice.” Isaiah 60:18 (ESV) reads that “Violence shall no more be heard in your land, devastation or destruction within your borders; you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.”

For more than 2,000 years, Cahn says, the Jewish people have been seeking peace. But no matter what they do, they haven’t been able to find it.

Whether by the Philistines, the Romans, the Nazis or Hamas, the Jewish people have been despised by many throughout the world. They work diligently for peace, but it eludes them because of prevailing antisemitism.

But peace is conditional, Cahn says. The Jewish people must turn to Messiah. And, he says, that very thing is beginning to happen in the Holy Land.

The terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah, and certainly the country of Iran, have made it clear in no uncertain terms about wanting to annihilate the Jews from the earth. The latest brutal invasion of Israel by Hamas is just the latest shining example.

And with the rebirth of Israel as a nation in 1948, and the thousands of Jews making Aliyah to Israel the past several years as was prophesied in the Old Testament, it is not surprising that these enemies, through Satan himself, will do anything they can to stop the purposes of God.

Israel is once again in the center of the news and controversy,” Cahn says. “World War II is no longer a news story. The cold wars is not a new story; the Reagan years, the Clinton years, the Obama years, not the story. But Israel is still the story and the same controversy that it was before.

“The Bible reveals that there is a war against the existence of the Jewish people,” he adds. “It is natural, and it transcends time and space. You can find the hatred of the Jewish people and Israel in Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America and even in America, everywhere. Even when there are no Jewish people, you find the hatred of the Jewish people. You find it in the modern world, you find it in the ancient world and you find it in the Middle Ages. Everybody gives a different reason.

“It’s not about the reason,” Cahn explains. “It’s not natural. It’s supernatural. It’s spiritual, it’s demonic and it’s satanic. The hatred, fury and age-old war against Israel is a sign that the enemy of God, the enemy of Israel (Satan) is also real. What those Hamas terrorists did to those families wasn’t natural; it was satanic.”

Hamas’ actions were reminiscent, Cahn says, of the horrors perpetrated against the Jews by the Nazi death squads during World War II, where they would go house to house looking to round up Jewish families to “slaughter them.”

What Hamas did was no accident, Cahn says. “It’s the same spirit that impelled them to do what impelled the Nazis to do it; same satanic theory.”

Cahn says throughout history, Israel, as a physical nation, has had to fight hard to stay alive. And, he says, we who are of Messiah are of a spiritual nation, and we must fight in the Spirit—for Israel, for America and for ourselves—against spiritual evil. That’s where the command from Ezekiel 45 comes in to expel Hamas (violence) and to execute justice.

The Jewish people have been waiting for Messiah for 2,000 years, Cahn says. But what if the Jewish Messiah already came and most of them missed it? Jesus himself looked out over Jerusalem and wept for the Jewish people.

“He said, ‘Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem.’ Your peace, or shalom, is hidden from you,'” Cahn says.

“When it looks like they’re about to have peace, as it did with recent peace talks [before the war in Gaza began], then something happens to take it away,” Cahn says. “Yeshua happens to be their Messiah. He is their Prince of Peace. Without Him, there is no peace. Only when they turn to Him, who is the hope of Israel, will they find their shalom, their peace.”

Cahn says that what we have witnessed recently with Hamas in Israel is part of an ancient war and ancient mystery playing out in modern times before our very eyes.

“In the book of Jeremiah, God said this concerning the Jewish people,” Cahn says. “The Lord says, ‘He who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar, the Lord of hosts is His name. If this fixed order should depart from Me, says the Lord, then the descendants, the children of Israel, will cease to be a nation before Me.”

That has not happened yet, although the enemies of Israel, including hell, have raged against them for more than 2,500 years. The miracle, Cahn says, is that the Jews are still alive.

“They live, and they should not be alive under the circumstances,” Cahn says. “The enemy has raged for ages to wipe them off the face of the earth. The Pharaohs tried to destroy them; Syria tried to wipe them out. Babylon tried to smash them. Rome tried to eliminate them; the Nazis tried to annihilate them. The Soviet Union tried to crush them. … Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, the mullahs of Iran and all of the terrorists of the world have tried to destroy them from the face of the earth.

“But they are all gone,” he adds. “The terrorists will be no more. They have fallen, but the nation of Israel lives on. The nation of Israel lives because the God of Israel lives. If you will follow the God of Israel, you will live. He who keeps Israel will keep you, and the enemy will be gone and you will prevail, and like it says in Ezekiel, no more destruction will be heard in your land.” {eoa}
