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
– Paul Cohen (January 5, 2009)
Stuart Federow publishes “What Jews Believe,” which consists of a list of ten postulates that prohibit Jews from believing in Jesus Christ. Who made Stuart a spokesman for all Jews? The only One Whose Word matters here is God. What does He have to say about Stuart’s personal objections? Just what do true Jews believe?
The religious world is filled with worldly wisdom concerning the things of God and of Holy Scripture. Man can be ever so clever in refuting the truth and authority of God. He does so because he is possessed by the cause of that disposition of refutation, that being the arrogance and independence of the sin nature. We reply to the cynical and contradictory questions people have proudly asked in refuting the legitimacy of Jesus Christ/Yahshuah as Messiah, Lord and Savior of the Jews and of the whole world.
