Poking God in the Eye

      Sky Tree Tower Tokyo

Why worry about Fukushima, when you can build a tower. Yes, that’s right. The Japanese have erected the world’s tallest tower – not building, (the Burj in Dubai holds that distinction), but tower.  At 2080 feet, Japan’s newest tower handily beats the former record holder in China, which, stands at a mere 1968.5 feet high.

And, while Japan is busy celebrating its newest achievement, their government is involved in a high stakes game with God regarding Israel and Iran. And, this is not their first go around – March 11, 2011, proved that – as, one year to the day that Japan announced that they “deplored” Israel’s decision to build housing units in East Jerusalem, God proved that there are some things that he deplores too, and anti-Israel rhetoric is one of them.

A harsh lesson, indeed, but, one apparently not learned, as Japan moves against Israel once again, by breaking the oil embargo being held against Iran, as reported by the Debkafile today   A move, I’m afraid that could render, a second, and more powerful judgment by the release of massive amounts of radiation from the severely damaged Fukushima reactor which, if the reports are to be believed is even now, hanging by a thread. A release of radiation that would have devastating consequences, not only for Japan, but, for the ocean and the world at large should even a minor earthquake further damage the reactor.  A judgment, I believe that God is even now, holding in reserve.

Yes, today Japan is basking in the glory of their new tower, and, the “name that they have made for themselves” in building it, but, that glory is about to be short-lived, for Japan is about to find out the hard way; you can only poke God in the eye so many times without evoking a response – and, messing with Israel is poking God in the eye, the Bible is clear on this:

“This is what the Lord Almighty says, ‘whoever touches you, (Israel)    touches the apple of my eye'”  Zechariah 2:8

And, woe to those that do!

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper who love thee”  Psalm 122:6  Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!   Cindy


  1. Hello Cindy,
    I’ve been following your posts for awhile now. Not sure if I’ve ever posted before. So true about “poking God in the eye.” Too many countries and individuals doing this right now. Our God is patient and merciful, but He has warned us in His Word that a time is coming when time will run out and judgment will be swift. Blessings, Tracy

    [Thank you Tracy for taking the time to write! You’re right, time is running out – sadly, most are blissfully unaware, even though, if they took even one moment to consider, they would see the world is in a heap of trouble! Keep praying and keep looking up! C]
