Humankind, if nothing else and left to its own resources, would spend entire existences (lives) in darkness and despair for the want of being able to live with one another in harmony and mutual welfare. Humans, by their very nature, are not so disposed. Were it not for the external influences of that unseen Being by whom all things exist (contrary to so many that say such a one does not exist or need proof of such), this world's humanity would have been destroyed and no one left to explain why.

Israel, as inheritor of the promises made to Abraham, was set to being the instrument by which all things related to her Eternal Sovereign was to be revealed. In that capacity, the people of the promise were to be Almighty God's means to show that obedience to Him in love was the path to life, and disobedience in pride the broad way to death. Therefore there is this struggle to resist this latest onslaught against western 'Christianized' society, and confusion as to why it is so hard to do so.

Europe, indeed, any in all the world that do not have the message of the Holy Spirit written in their hearts through Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, will not be able to understand all that has happened in history, nor will any in unbelief comprehend was is about to be unveiled in the near future.

Israel is the center of history, for in the center of history the Anointed One of Israel made known the revealed Word of the LORD, that the promised Son of Almighty God was born to deliver the message of the LORD to the people, was crucified to death to pay for the sins of mankind, and was buried. By the power of the LORD, Yeshua was raised from the dead to assume His position at the right hand of the Father, to prepare for His eventual return to Jerusalem.

This central message, the Gospel, is what is the cause for all mankind's beginnings and endings of frustrations, and to understand why Europe does not support Israel is to understand the unbelief in the Gospel and how it applies to everyone's future. The future is set to rise and fall on the fortunes of Israel in these times, and the only way to make sense of it is to believe and accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ and be prepared for the eventuality of His return. All other musings lead to futility, and in the end, the loss of the only chance for peace and love in eternity.
