Not Hypothetical - Israel's Right to Exist is Guaranteed in the Holy Bible - Not by Promises or Actions of Men - But by the Holy Word of the LORD

Reader comment on item: Israel's Strategic Incompetence in Gaza
in response to reader comment: Hypothetical question for you, M. Tovey

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Jan 20, 2009 at 11:26

We are seeing today the completion of the promises made by Almighty God to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Historically, look at the differences of the people Israel in the taking of Jericho, versus Ai. When the Israel's obeyed the Word of the LORD, their victory was in the ability to rejoice in the salvation of JHVH, the LORD. When they move against an enemy in their own strength and against His Word, we can see the results. 'Hudna' is the only 'peace' Israel can expect while fighting her enemies in the current context.

In hoping for the best for Israel, by prayer and in response to the needs of the Jewish people (participating in humanity missions to meet the needs of the Israeli civilians in distress) in these troubles time, we must do so in the light of the Holy Bible, to be in conformance to the will of Almight God in these matters. Jesus Christ said, "salvation is of the Jews." Truth, to be sure, yet the nation of Jacob needs its time to recognize that as well and come to their special place of knowledge to Him. Hence, their everlasting peace comes not from their human efforts to make peace, but from their recognition of their need for Him in their lives: then comes true peace.
