God is in control

Reader comment on item: "Today Gaza, Tomorrow Jerusalem"

Submitted by Susan Walker (United States), Aug 13, 2005 at 00:56

"The retreat will inspire not comity but a new rejectionist exhilaration, a greater frenzy of anti-Zionist anger, and a surge in anti-Israel violence."

How I wish you were wrong about this, but you are absolutely correct. However, I believe the whole Bible, and the land of Israel, according to the Bible, will ultimately be possessed by Jews from the Euphrates River to the Mediterranean Sea. It seems impossible, but who would have thought the Jews would reclaim Israel in 1948 and make the desert bloom in subsequent years? Take heart in the fact that God is in control. He gave Israel to Abraham and his descendants forever (Genesis 13:14-15).
