Reader comment on item: A Turning Point in the Arab-Israeli Conflict?
in response to reader comment: Debanjan Banerjee needs to be corrected

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Jun 9, 2011 at 15:57

From the ancient annals:

9) Then wrote Rehum the chancellor, and Shimshai the scribe, and the rest of their companions; the Dinaites, the Apharsathchites, the Tarpelites, the Apharsites, the Archevites, the Babylonians, the Susanchites, the Dehavites, and the Elamites, 10) And the rest of the nations whom the great and noble Asnappar brought over, and set in the cities of Samaria, and the rest that are on this side the river, and at such a time. 12) Be it known unto the king, that the Jews which came up from thee to us are come unto Jerusalem, building the rebellious and the bad city, and have set up the walls thereof, and joined the foundations. 13) Be it known now unto the king, that, if this city be built, and the walls set up again, then will they not pay toll, tribute, and custom, and so thou shall (endanger) the revenue of the kings. 14) Now because we have maintenance from the king's palace, and it was not meet for us to see the king's dishonor, therefore have we sent and certified the king; 15) That search may be made in the book of the records of thy fathers: so shall thou find in the book of the records, and know that this city is a rebellious city, and hurtful unto kings and provinces, and that they have moved sedition within the same of old time: for which cause was this city destroyed. 16) We certify the king that, if this city be built again, and the walls thereof set up, by this means thou shall have no portion on this side the river.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? History of the humankind demonstrates that if nothing else, humanity is consistent in its repetition of lost causes. However, the only sector of humanity that has defied the odds of returning out of the dark shadows of the antiquities is the Israeli people-not once, but twice. And the lesson not learned by humanity: they are set to do it again.

The real threat in the Middle East is not that there cannot be peace in the Middle East under the current or humanly derived process, but that the world is being deceived into thinking that peace can be brought about by thinking about destroying what the Almighty Eternal Sovereign of Israel has prepared for the promise of Abraham.

It has been prompted elsewhere that "the way 'Zionists' can triumph (sic) all their obstacles to survival," is to follow a plan of deception in which conversion to Islam and aligning with the process of 'ummah' will obtain a place in the 'new world order' to be perpetrated upon the lands promised to Israel.

In his own words, DB has recognized the power that has been consigned to the defense of Israel. What DB does not understand is that the power is not Israel's. So he is not able to make the connection as to why the lessons mentioned above are not going to be learned except that the part of mankind that does not honor Israel's Eternal Sovereign will be required to pay for not honoring the WORD of the LORD.

Want a Biblical description of what the 'ummah' is all about: For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem (meaning return them to their original lands-Ezekiel 37), I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and [for] my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? Will ye render me a recompense? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompense upon your own head; Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things: The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border. Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompense upon your own head: And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it.

So, it is evident that all who are to remain to face the wrath of the LORD will be given the chance to become part of the 'ummah;' but from a Biblical perspective, it would be eternally wise to have avoided it by accepting the truth of Yeshua HaMashiach beforehand. That is the witness of a true evangelical disciple of Yeshua HaMashiach.
