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)
Jews write a document recording Jews persecuting Jews, and now Jews call this document the origin of anti-Semitism and blame it on the Gentiles. It is called the New Testament. Pieter van der Horst, though not a Jew that we know, only serves to support this irony.
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the LORD weighs the hearts (Proverbs 21:2 HNV). Israel, come hear the Word of God, and let your hearts be revealed; know the Truth and be reconciled to Your Father. It is time. Of what value is it to continue in darkness, not knowing Him and His heart towards you, Who has loved you from days of old and draws you with lovingkindness?
What the God of Israel has done for me, and what He will do for you.
