Reality of Israel in Her Own Land is Not Fantasy - But Biblical Destiny Realized Against All Human Logic

Reader comment on item: A Rapid and Harsh Turn against Israel
in response to reader comment: Destiny

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Jun 18, 2009 at 11:46

If life teaches one thing more than anything else, it is that destiny is not mankind's to control. Much is said and much is attempted to assert humanity's presumption that such things can be controlled, but only in the delusion that men, women, and children have a power greater than life and death and can defy the natural order that actually does have control. The overwhelming evidence is that humanity cannot defy the natural order without consequences, even unto death. We are told in the Hebrew Holy Bible that this is true, and it is confirmed in the Word of the LORD pronounced by Jesus Christ, the Holy One of Israel.

We have history to confirm that as well. A couple of quick examples can be drawn to in order to illustrate this premise of life. There is the Babylonian deportation of the land of Israel, and their return. Then there is the Macedonian King Alexander who conquered the then known world, only to die in his excess and his empire distributed to successor pretenders to the throne. These are mentioned in the Hebrew Holy Bible as well.

Israel can make a claim to the land they are in only on the basis of the Hebrew Holy Bible. It is in the Torah, the prophets, and the tomes of Wisdom. It is not fantasy, religious or otherwise. Whether one cringes at the term Zion, or holds to a different ideology to underline the rationale of why things are the way they are, it cannot be denied that after centuries of being dispersed among the nations of the world, what human logic or articles of debate can deny the presence of the Jewish people in their historical lands in defiance of the attempts to keep them out.

As stated before, destiny is not mankinds' to control, but is reserved to a power that supersedes humankind's fragile existence and comprehension of that state of being. That Israel is on the land exactly as pronounced and in conformance with the Word of the LORD, the Hebrew Holy Bible, cannot be denied except by the completely rebellious mind that prefers to ignore such things for the sake of human rationality. Consider this, that if Israel does not have its destiny in its own promised land, what keeps the world at bay to evict the Jewish population for the sake of peace and complete the efforts of making 'Palestine' out of the Land of Israel.

The answer to that is found only in the Hebrew Holy Bible. But that requires understanding that exceeds human logic, and following a rationale that understands the world's destiny is tied to Israel's destiny, whether one believes it or not, and that an individual's destiny is found in the Hebrew Holy Bible in the same way.
