And Then There Were None

This story probably isn't getting much attention in prophecy circles, but it is significant. Over the last several years the only government who has been outspoken in support of Israel has been Canada. We knew this time would come:

Zechariah 12:3 

And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.

Note "...all nations of the earth". Not "most" of the nations, but all nations. 

It now looks like Canada may be the last to fall, but at this point, assuming that the new liberal administration in Canada will not support Israel (and that is a safe bet) - we are now actually at the point in which all nations will be gathered against Israel. 

All news channels are predicting that Justin Trudeau will become the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada and form a majority government. The Liberals are projected to win at least 191 seats as of this writing, exceeding the minimum 170-seat threshold for a majority government. 
 The Conservatives are currently projected to win 104 seats, the NDP 32 seats, and Bloc Quebecois 10 seats. 
Beginning with a sweep of virtually all Atlantic Canada’s ridings – 32 of the 338 total seats in the House of Commons – the wave seemed to continue going west across the country as polling stations closed and votes were counted. 
Trudeau’s victory ushers in a new era for the Liberal Party of Canada, which has been plagued with unappealing leadership since at least Paul Martin’s ascendance in 2003. Under Martin’s leadership, the Liberals lost their previous majority government, and then lost power in 2006. Subsequent leadership was equally poor in attempting to rebuild the party’s support; first with a leader who struggled to speak English, then with an aloof part-time Canadian who lived most of his adult life in America.

Trudeau’s campaign channeled rhetoric reminiscent of President Obama’s presidential reelection campaign in 2012, as well as that of his 2008 campaign while still a senator. His campaign promised “real change,” spoke regularly about the nebulous “middle class,” and framed the consensus of the United Nations as representative of Canada’s international reputation. His campaign also focused on reaching out to young voters. Perhaps most importantly, Trudeau’s campaign has incorporated sophisticated technology for hi-tech GOTV efforts used and proven successful by the Obama campaigns.

Both the Liberals and NDP hired advisors who were alumni of President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign. Cross-pollination of left-wing political strategy across the Canada/U.S. border is not entirely new; David Axelrod advised failed former Ontario Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty. McGuinty is now a lobbyist.

It is a very sad day here in Canada. Pray for us as we head down this path. Our new PM is everything we don't need. He wouldn't allow anyone be members of his government if they had pro life views. That's how scary this new government is. He also wants to open talks with Iran. Harper was a great leader. One who openly stood with Israel, against Putin and kept our economy going during a very rough decade. Our young people see Trudeau as an tolerant leader. One who welcomes all. He's a wolf in sheep's clothing and this country will suffer for what I'm fearing will be the most disgrasfull 4 years we have ever seen. That being said I need to pray and support what we now have. Thanks for posting this.

It was a sad day for my nation, I wept

Oh My! It just never stops, does it.

Well, birth pangs aren't known for taking a few weeks off because Mom's getting tired and Dad's nerves are shot.

And poor Israel....and, I suspect, us. Don't think Christian persecution and a faster paced drastic change for North America is far behind.

Canada we feel your pain. As Caver said the birth pains are simply increasing in intensity and frequency! The good news that means we are moving quickly toward going home! Even so come Lord Jesus.

I had a special fondness for Harper because he is saved and a member of my denomination, the Christian and Missionary Alliane. Him losing sadly is a perfect fit for where we are on Gods prophetic time line. I think Canada was the last hold outs in support of Israel?
