Do the Golan Heights belong to Israel? - Maoz Israel Report, Ari and Shira Sorko-Ram

August 2019

The Golan Heights Part 3:
The Golan Heights are a beloved destination for Israelis looking to escape daily pressure during the summer and winter months. Many of the trails can take the casual hiker through ancient sites inhabited by the Israelites of old.

Yet, on the international scene, this area continues to be a point of the eternal bias the UN continually applies to Israel. So, what can we learn about the Golan Heights in the real world in which Israel lives?

Missed previous articles?
No matter how many nations rise up against Israel, God continues to be faithful to His promises - to protect Israel and never uproot her again. (Amos 9:15)

Maoz Israel exists because of God's promises - that All Israel will be saved. This is our heart's desire, and we pray it is yours, too.

"The Golan Heights: President Trump's Bold Move" - Curt Landry The Elijah List

"The Golan Heights: President Trump's Bold Move"

From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
Steve Shultz
This is quite a sobering word from Rabbi Curt Landry and what was in recent news concerning the Golan Heights.
As Curt admonishes us here:
The turbulent fighting over this land should not surprise Believers, nor should we be ignorant of the fact that it is impacting us—politically and spiritually. Standing with Israel shuts the mouth of the enemy. Will you be the one who stands up to be a voice of truth?
As you read through Rabbi Curt's article, let's remember to keep Israel in our prayers and all God is doing in this hour. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

The Golan Heights
The Golan Heights region has been in the news for decades and has been considered the "high place" with both Biblical and political significance.
The Golan Heights is a territory in Israel's northeast corner along the Syrian border. It is a rocky, elevated plateau. Mount Hermon marks the highest point, standing at 9,232 feet above sea level, and holds the Israeli Defense Forces' strategic observation post. The Golan Heights also overlooks the Sea of Galilee and the Hula Valley—some of Israel's most fertile lands.
The Golan Heights is part of the land that God gave to Abraham and was subsequently passed down to the half tribe of Manasseh (see Deuteronomy 4:43). As long as this land is not in alignment with the Biblical covenant, there will be no peace for Israel or its neighbors.
The Land Covenant
God made a Land Covenant with Israel before the death of Moses and the nation's entry into the Promised Land. This covenant remains in effect still today. Until the borders of Israel align with what God has commanded, turmoil will continue.
We must understand that what happens in the physical is a manifestation of what is happening in the spiritual. Spiritual warfare is all around us in the atmosphere. The enemies—both in the spiritual and physical—want to steal this fertile ground because they know of its abundant potential and great blessing.
The turbulent fighting over this land should not surprise Believers, nor should we be ignorant of the fact that it is impacting us—politically and spiritually. Standing with Israel shuts the mouth of the enemy. Will you be the one who stands up to be a voice of truth?
New Beginnings
This is a time of great awakening as the Hebrew year 5779 comes to an end and we transition into 5780. The number 8 represents new beginnings.
• Will we awaken to the coming together as the One New Man's new beginning?
• Will we understand the significance of aligning our calendars with God's during this new season?
The Political Significance of the Golan Heights
"After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel's Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!" (President Donald Trump tweets on March 21, 2019)
It's about time we had a president bold enough to make this move.
As a nation, we are used to slow governmental changes that block political and Biblical alignment. But President Trump, who is believed to carry the Cyrus anointing, is known for making bold moves and statements.
This is exactly what this nation needs—a strong leader who is not afraid to stand with God's people and align our land with Israel's. A president who creates a barrier of entry for the enemy and says, "You cannot have it. It is not yours."
As we approach these latter times, we will start to see a greater increase in the shaking of the atmosphere as spiritual and political forces collide.
Can't You Talk Louder, God?
The shaking must occur so that the false beliefs and anti-Semitic acts of this world are sifted out. The Lord is preparing His Church to unite as One New Man in order to take up dominion in the seven mountains of influence.
Without this authority, we are not only crippled but the next generation is as well. Our children and grandchildren will be subjected to injustices that are camouflaged as fairness. Without the Church taking their rightful place in our world, our children will be told by media, leaders, and religious organizations that acts of violence and atheistic principals are righteous and will bring peace.
This is a tragedy that does not leave a lasting legacy.
Operate According to the Power of the Holy Spirit
In Ephesians 3:20, God says, "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us..."
If we think for a moment that as Believers, we are to sit back and keep our convictions of truth because the Church has no place in business and leadership in our world, we are mistaken. We are not to be silenced—we are to be bold and move in the authority of the Holy Spirit given to us by Yeshua.
"Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you." (Luke 10:19)
I ask you, are you claiming this inherited dominion that you have been charged with?
Yeshua spoke of separating the sheep nations from the goat nations during the end times. (Photo via Unsplash)
"When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world...'" (Matthew 25:31-34)
The sheep nations will be placed at His right hand. Where do you want to be found? Where do we want to be found as a nation? When we honor and support the leaders who are honoring and supporting Israel, we supernaturally move into authority.
President Trump's bold move to proclaim Golan Heights as part of Israel is not just a political move but a God move. God is aligning the nations. He is positioning His people for what is to come.
In the natural, it's important we understand that if the high place of the Golan is taken by the enemy, it is not defensible. Jerusalem and other areas of Israel are subject to firing rockets. If the only democratic nation in the Middle East is overtaken by opposing forces, you can imagine what this means for the position of the United States.
"Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." (Proverbs 14:34)
As the Bible exemplifies, if a nation's moral standards are not in alignment with God's, they are overtaken and fall. Though we each have a personal responsibility, we also have a joint responsibility to preserve the Christian heritage that America was founded upon. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog: An historic, moral, and strategically wise decision: President Trump was right to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Here’s why.


New post on Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

An historic, moral, and strategically wise decision: President Trump was right to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Here’s why.

by joelcrosenberg
(Washington, D.C.) -- President Trump made history this week by signing an official proclamation declaring that the United States now recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. He did so during a Monday ceremony in the Oval Office with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. [Read the leaders' remarks here.]
I commend President Trump and Vice President Pence for making this morally correct, strategically wise, and long-overdue decision. And I pray the U.S. and Israel will continue to work ever-more-closely together to prevent Russia, Iran and Turkey from taking over Syria and making it a forward operating base from which to attack the Jewish State.
  • In 1967, Syria planned and prepared to use the Golan Heights as the launching pad of a massive invasion of Israel. Their goal: to help Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser "throw the Jews into the sea" and utterly annihilate the Jewish State.
  • Syria's plans, however, were thwarted when Israel won the "Six Day War" -- stunning all of the Arab states -- and took possession of the Golan Heights.
  • In 1973, Syria again planned and prepared to invade Israel and utterly destroy the Jewish State. In close cooperation with the Egyptians, Damascus launched a massive surprise attack on Yom Kippur, the highest holy day on the Jewish calendar. 
  • Syria's plan, however, were once again thwarted -- precisely because Israel now controlled these commanding heights. Israeli soldiers and tanks positioned in the Golan Heights faced an overwhelming onslaught by Syria tank units. But the Israelis present in those mountain passes fought bravely and were able to fend off the initial Syrian wave just long enough until the IDF could call up reserves to come to their rescue and decisively push the Syrians back for good. Had Israel not controlled the Heights at the time, it is very likely that Syria would have succeeded in capturing most (and perhaps all) of northern Israel.
Most world leaders consider the Golan Heights "Israeli occupied territory." But let's be clear: Israel was not the aggressor in 1967. Israel was not seeking to annihilate anyone or destroy an entire country or even expand its territory. Instead, Israel won the territory in a defensive war against an enemy threatening her people with genocide. Just six years later, Israelis leaders used the territory to defend their people against a second war of annihilation. Since then, the Heights have provided critically important strategic depth on a front with a neighbor long-hostile, and now disintegrating into murderous chaos.
Imagine if Israel had handed this territory back to the regime of Bashar al-Assad.
  • Would Israelis have been safe from a man who has murdered more than 500,000 of his own people in recent years?
  • Would Israel have been safe from a man who has used chemical weapons against his own people?
  • Would Israel have been safe from the genocidal forces of ISIS which captured large swaths of Syria and, until their caliphate was recently crushed, kept advancing against the borders of Israel?
  • Would Israel have been safe from a regime that has allied itself with Iran, whose mullahs also threaten to "wipe Israel off the map"?
The truth is it would be insane to turn this land over to the agents of terror and genocide. That's why Israel formally annexed the Golan Heights as sovereign Israeli territory in 1981, after concluding that it could not survive another war from the north without possession of the Golan Heights. At the time, the Reagan administration sharply criticized Israel's decision. But now the Trump White House and State Department have come to realize that on this issue Israel has been proven right after all. Hopefully, other nations will study the issue more carefully and come to the same conclusion.
