CBN's Erick Stakelbeck Inerview with Israel's Minister of Economy, Naftali Bennett
21 April 2014: Naftali Bennett, born to American parents, is without question a very fast rising and increasingly powerful figure in Israeli politics. He is the leader of the Israeli political party Habayit Hayehud, or The Jewish Home, and the co-founder of the Israeli political movement Yisra'el Sheli, or My Israel. In the simplest terms understandable to American born-again Christians, Naftali Bennett is a Zionist within the context of all the Biblical prophecies regarding a re-born Israel in these last days.
Naftali Bennett is the kind of Israeli leader I can envision as being the Rosh HaMemshala (Prime Minister) in office for the fulfillment of Isaiah 17; the Psalm 83 prophecy final engagements, and possibly even the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38/39. Since I do believe we are just so very close to the 70th Week, and based upon Naftali's experience as a member of Israel's elite special forces (Sayeret Maktal and Maglan), I can also envision him in the near future as possibly being or directly associated with what Israeli Orthodox religious leaders will herald as the long-awaited Moshiach ben Yosef, the great military leader of Israel prior to the appearance of the also expected Moshiach ben David. Both are figures who are directly connected to the Jewish vision of the expected Messianic era.
All of that said, here is a link to brief article and a 'must see' embedded interview between CBN's Erick Stakelbeck and Naftali Bennett: Bennett: Judea, Samaria Key to Israel's Security.
