Truth- Existence of Israel a Promise Kept - A Destiny Allah Could Not, Cannot Stop

in response to reader comment: Only Allah is supreme

What our Islamic fellow is saying here may, to some, be a bold statement that counters the current situation (including the most recent shooting spree in Jerusalem by an Islamic ‘Palestinian' Terrorist – is anyone surprised at this latest attack or the glee exhibits by the Islamic Gazans ?) that we are all seeing in Israel and the world, but in reality not so shocking.

What may be considered actually more shocking is that long before anyone thought that Islam may present a modern threat to the current world sensibilities, this thing he writes of is already in the Hebrew Scriptures, written long ago in a time before there was ever the prophet Mohammed or Islam. And we know the Islamic prophet knew of Yeshua, knowing Yeshua existed before the Quran, for he did write of Him there. Say what, you might be thinking? Actually, others have already mentioned this.

There are a few verses in the Hebrew Scriptures that could be pointed to, but for this moment, these should do as a start.

We read in Daniel 8:23) And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. 24) And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. 25) And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify [himself] in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

Then we have where Yeshua HaMashiach tells us (there are also corollary passages in Matthew) in Luke 21:24) And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

So, we are not being told anything new. But understand, the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob already knows what is being proposed against Israel, and as He has done before, He will bring Israel through the refining fire and to the premier place among the nations, at His throne in Jerusalem.

Lastly, this was written by our Islamic fellow, "Muslims were until last century were an un-challengable force." Were allah actually true to the writings of their Quran, how is this possible? For all intents and purposes, Jerusalem was under Muslim rule until 1917, was it not? And if Islam were as compelling as proposed by its adherents, why, if allah is presumed supreme, that if after a thousand years (a millenium) is Islam not yet the reigning religion?

The answer is already written, its fulfillment already happening. Islam does get its moment to shine, even a chance to follow an al-Madhi to their destiny. But remember this, that moment and fulfillment of destiny was found in the Word of the LORD long before, and the Word of the LORD will remain long after.
