It looks like Israeli political leaders have agreed to form a coalition government

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: It looks like Benny Gantz is going to join Prime Minister Netanyahu to form a unity government. Can you believe that and what's the latest on it?

DD: Well Jimmy not only do I believe it but you might remember I was predicting this in early January already on a national emergency government then because of the eminent threat of war with Iran. After Soleimani was killed the Al Quds chief there was cause then for the postponement of the March elections and for Gantz to just join Netanyahu in an emergency government. That didn't happen. We had the elections, still not quite enough as we all know to form a majority government with Netanyahu. So the calls began again for an emergency government this time because of the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the world and very much effecting Israel. Benny Gantz finally vowing to wide spread public pressure for the formation of a real government. Come on guys, there's a crisis out there, we now have our soldiers falling ill from a virus and have our hospitals filled. And so Benny Gantz in the end agreed to that breaking up his Blue & White alliance.

The people's opinions will show are very happy at this development. It looks like Netanyahu will remain Prime Minister for the time being and Gantz will then take over after an unspecified, they're still working out all these details, but an unspecified period of time. Mean while he's been elected speaker of the Knesset, speaker of the Parliament Benny Gantz has. So he has a high position but he will probably come in as Prime Minister later. They're saying he'll soon resign as speaker and take over the defense ministry portfolio but there's some resistance to that. I won't go into all the details. But a bit of a mess but at least it looks like for the next few days Israel will have a government as the coronavirus continues to spread very very rapidly Jimmy in Israel.

JD: David Dolan with the details on the agreement of Israeli political leaders agreeing to form a coalition government.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

God's plan for leading the nations of this world is in the institution of human government which the Lord actually created, that's Genesis 9:6. God has used human government to direct these nations down through history and will do so even in the times of the end as foretold in Bible prophecy, that's Revelation 17:17.

With the coronavirus crisis in Israel political minds made the correct decision and will form a government which the Lord will use to take the Jewish state into the future.
