At the end of 2006, we raised the flag of Israel, a representation of the spiritual stance the Lord gave us towards that nation. Now, two years later at the same time of year, when gathered together again at Harvest Haven, we prayed for Israel in its current war in Gaza. Victor, in the Name of the Lord, cursed Hamas and all those who stand with it against Israel.
There is much misinformation and purposeful obfuscation of the reality of the situation in Israel with its hostile neighbors. The world is asleep and blind to its hypocrisy in condemning Israel. Here are two pieces that offer some reality – a writing on the moral clarity of the war in Gaza, and a short visual presentation on the facts of the history of the Middle East surrounding the Israeli-Arab conflict.
The writing: Moral Clarity in Gaza
The presentation: What Really Happened in the Middle East
– Paul Cohen (January 5, 2009)
You know what their problem is, completely? It is not us, not lack of knowledge, not persecution, not Christianity, not Muslims, not descendants of Ishmael, not Middle East real estate, not a false witness of Christ or the preaching of a false Christ. It is that they reject Jesus Christ, case closed.
An outstanding and irrefutable sign of God’s sovereignty and ongoing work with mankind is the resurrection of the nation of Israel. This miracle was promised by God and caps a history at which men have marveled.
A Jewish acquaintance, Garry, sent us an article by Yair Lapid titled "The Mystery of Hate." The hatred of Jews is indeed a mystery, one that makes no sense on the contemporary scene at all. While Yair does not mention the rest of the Gentile world along with Muslims and Arabs as hating Jews, it too is really no different.
