Ariel Sharon Remembered As Israel’s “Warrior”

Zechariah 12:3 “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”

Editor's Note: Jim Bakker teaches to watch Israel closely because it is the prophetic timeclock for the unfolding of Last Days events. In Matthew 24, Israel is the fig tree that the Lord told His people to observe to understand the times. It is like a barometer of what is happening in the nations.

Ariel Sharon was remembered as a great warrior who was also fiercely devoted to his family.

A state memorial service was held Monday attended by multiple foreign dignitaries. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and others attended the ceremony.  The Arab world even had a representative as Egypt sent a diplomat to the ceremony.

Vice President Biden delivered a personal address about his decades-long friendship with Sharon and said his passing felt like a “death in the family.”  Biden shared stories about how he learned Sharon earned his nickname “The Bulldozer” after he would bring out maps and repeatedly make the same points to hammer home his passion for his country.

He defended this land like a lion and he taught its children to swing a scythe,” Israeli President Shimon Peres said his eulogy.  “He was a military legend in his lifetime and then turned his gaze to the day Israel would dwell in safety, when our children would return to our borders and peace would grace the Promised Land.”

Sharon was buried on his farm in southern Israel.
