in response to reader comment: Zephaniah 2:4-5

Hello, Skylark. You said,

God is telling people to leave these regions before the next war where Gaza becomes uninhabitant and Ashkelon and Ashdod become desolate. IF people listen to this prophecy and leave those areas their lives will be saved.

You said this in response to my post, which, in turn, was in response to Israel's apparent inability to neutralize the dead dog that is the Gaza strip.

In my post, I gave the example of Israel's inability, in the past, to defeat the tiny town of Ai. The reason for the latter defeat was caused by Israel's double-mindedness in swearing allegiance to YHVH while at the same time treasuring the wealth that came with cozying up to the Pagans and their idolatrous ways.

There was nothing in my post about any warning, past or present, from God or anyone else, that the inhabitants of Gaza, Ashdod and Ashkelon should evacuate their homes. Whenever evacuations are called for, even among Israel's enemies, the IDF has warned and will continue to warn the inhabitants to this effect in a timely manner.
