Israeli Victory is Scripturally Assured - But Fulfillment Requires a Greater Calling Beyond Democratic Acknowledgement

Reader comment on item: Spelling Out Israel Victory

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Aug 9, 2022 at 10:16

Dr. Pipes' presentation here hits upon some encouraging notes of how Israel will eventually emerge victorious, but even in quoting Deuteronomy, that is not even a tenth of what is about to take place in the land that is called 'the apple of her LORD's eye.' Zechariah, chapter 1, which see in the following verses:
[1 In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, the Word of the Lord came to the prophet Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, son of Iddo, saying, 2 "The Lord was very angry with your fathers. 3 Therefore say to them, Thus declares the Lord of hosts: Return to Me, says the Lord of hosts, and I will return to you, says the Lord of hosts. 4 Do not be like your fathers, to whom the former prophets cried out, 'Thus says the Lord of hosts, Return from your evil ways and from your evil deeds.' But they did not hear or pay attention to Me, declares the Lord. 5 Your fathers, where are they? And the prophets, do they live forever? 6 But My words and My statutes, which I commanded My servants the prophets, did they not overtake your fathers? So they repented and said, 'As the Lord of hosts purposed to deal with us for our ways and deeds, so has He dealt with us.'"]
As the world is immersing itself in rebellion to a peaceful ordering of events, so the global conflict that is heating up in cauldrons of selfish ambitions of empire from all vectors of the international scene; and all of it is now being focused on Israel ultimately; is it not? There is not enough room in this forum to reenumerate all of the Hebrew Scriptural revelation now in full display in order to advance the cause of Dr. Pipes' premise of Israeli victory.
Thus the mystery of the Diaspora is that the promised remnant that returns is destined to be the foundation of the final reestablishment of the throne of David;all after the democratic efforts come to the realization that all human efforts not directed towards the throne of David will be adjudicated just as the prophet Isaiah said would occur with the return of the Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach, the promise of which has already seen its opening events in the fulfillments of Ezekiel's revelations beginning with chapter 39. Israeli victory is assured.
