Why the United States of America Will Not Defend Israel in the War of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38 & 39

As a student of end time prophecy, or eschatology, a question has always intrigued me about the next prophetic biblical event, Ezekiel 38-39.   Where is the United States, Israel’s biggest ally when God provokes several nations to come against Israel?  Here are the nations that will attack Israel:
God gives us the lists the major nations that will attack Israel, and they are:
Magog - this is modern day Russia
Persia - this is modern day Iran
Meshech and Tubal, Togarmah - this region is modern day Turkey
Ethiopia - this is modern Ethiopia
Libya - this is modern day Libya
Gomer - this is modern day Germany
If you watch the news, you can already see these nations being prepared for this biblical event.  Why do I say “being prepared?” God prophesied this events over 2000 years ago, and whether you believe it or not, it will come to pass, because His word never returns void. Many biblical prophecies have already come to pass.
So back to my question. If the United States of America is Israel’s biggest ally, why are they not listed in the bible as coming to Israel’s aid? According to Ezekiel 38:23 “And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.” God will provoke these nations to come against Israel, so He can show his hand and all the world will know that He is Lord!
In this war, God will not need the United States or any other nation to intervene, He wants to show the world His sovereignty.  So something big in this natural world has to happen to make the US sit back on the sidelines and watch this moment of history play out, as God protects His people supernaturally in this upcoming war.
 Here’s what the Holy Spirit revealed to me:
Anti-Semitism is on the rise throughout the world, which would account for Israel’s European allies to stand down, during an attack by Russia, Iran, Turkey, Ethiopia, Libya and Germany. President Barak Obama has a very hostile relationship with Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu and the United States congress, which at this writing, January 29th, 2015, Republicans have control of both the Senate and the House. This post is not about Democrats or Republicans, however, I believe that God planted President Obama in office for two terms, so His Word, in Ezekiel 38 and 39 and will come to pass.
Last week, the President gave his seventh State of the Union address. In his speech, President Obama made this statement: “I don’t have any more campaigns to run.” The Republicans clapped and cheered, and then the President added, “Because I won them both!”  This comment set social media on fire! Millions of people Tweeted and shared the President’s comment. I believe this comment offended House Speaker John Boehner and the Republicans.  
I’ve watched this President being disrespected for six years. You can agree with this or not, that’s not the issue. What Speaker Boehner did next however, was shocking. He overstepped his authority and invited the Prime Minister to address Congress without asking or even advising the President of the United States! Again, this post is not about politics, so please stay with me as I continue to explain what the Holy Spirit showed me and wanted me to share.
The bible is very clear on where God stands on authority.  In 1 Timothy 2:1-2 scriptures states: I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. NIV  and in 1Peter 2:12-17 it states: 12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. 13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. 16 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 17 Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.
So for Christians, who claim to love the Lord, whether you like President Obama or not, our job is to pray for him and respect his authority as the leader of our country. When you don’t respect those in authority, the bible considers this rebellion, and do you know what the bible says about rebellion? In 1 Samuel 15:23 the scripture states: 23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. In Proverbs 17:11 it states:  An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
Wow, rebellion is an open door to the demonic in a person's life! The Bible warns us against rebellion, and its consequences are not to be taken lightly. God's Word tells us that rebellion is in the same category of sin as witchcraft itself! I believe this one single act by the Speaker of the House, will set the stage for even more conflict between the sitting President of the United States of America and the Prime Minister of Israel, which may led to our  President standing down if conflict breaks out in the Middle East and the above nations attack Israel.  I end this post by saying, please pray for the President of The United States, our nation, and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
