Over the last several days, Hamas (the so called Palestinian militants) have been firing hundreds of rockets toward Israel. Of course these rockets have no real chance of reaching their target, because of Israel’s American-funded missile defense system, called the “Iron Dome”. Hamas knows full well that the rockets themselves are an impotent gesture, but they also know that the mere act of firing them will draw a reaction from Israel. Predictably Israel obliges, in fine style, by bombing hundreds of Palestinian targets – ostensibly these bombings are aimed at those who are manufacturing, storing, and firing the rockets. However, in that densely populated area, there is a lot of collateral damage, and these dirt poor Palestinians are watching their innocent wives and children get blown to bits, and their meager property get turned to rubble. As I say, Hamas knows full well that this is the inevitable outcome, and counts on the fact that it will continue to fuel the rage of the Palestinian people toward the Jews. And so it goes – second verse, same as the first. All the while, the talking heads of godless, prideful, doomed America, run their mouths, and stick their noses into these matters. I’ll return to that later.
In the mean time, anyone who has read the scriptures knows full well that this is not a new thing, and nothing to be surprised at. This conflict is as old as their forefathers: Isaac vs Ishmael, and Jacob vs Esau. From those days until now, these men have fought over their inheritance, including their lands – Ishmael and Esau both being first born of their fathers, and both enraged that they were denied the inheritance of the first born. These brothers have a serious, perpetual frowny face!
Genesis 16:12 “[Ishmael] will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him.”
At least Ishmael and Isaac got some years on them before they went to war – Jacob and Esau, on the other hand, went to war while they were yet in the womb!
Genesis 25:22 [Jacob and Esau] struggled together within [Rebekah’s womb] … 23 And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger … 25 And the first came out … and they called his name Esau. 26 And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau’s heel; and his name was called Jacob.
Tell me that wasn’t a crazy looking sonogram. Can’t you just see Esau waging in utero Jihad against Jacob, with a tiny little AK-47? If you listen real close you can almost hear the little feller … “I kill you!”. Anyway – I digress.
The point is – the Lord God created enmity between these two, symbolic of the enmity between God’s elect children, and the Reprobate seed of Satan. This particular hatred and warfare has waged from those days until now in one form or another. According as he had promised, God allowed the Jews to dwell in that promised land while they were obedient to him, but having often rebelled, and rejecting his longsuffering admonitions, they were expelled from that land. They look to possess it now by human force, but it will not prosper – not while they continue to rebel against the plain, simple commands of their creator, and worse yet to reject their Messiah, Jesus Christ, whom they crucified. Their rebellion caused the Lord to turn from the Jews for a time, and bring salvation to the Gentiles, praise God! But that is only for a time – once the last Gentile sheep is called to repentance, and is brought into the fold, then the fullness of the Gentiles will be come in, and the Lord will return to the Jews. Paul speaks to these concepts at length in Romans 11 – I highly recommend a careful read of the whole chapter, but here are some highlights:
Romans 11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches [the Jews], take heed lest he also spare not thee [the Gentiles]. 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou [the Gentiles] also shalt be cut off [like the Jews were]… 25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. 26 And so all Israel shall be saved [after the fullness of the Gentiles is come in, God will return his favor to the Jews]: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
While there is much to be said on these topics, my point today is simply this: It is not your place, America, to stick your filthy, godless, audacious nose into these affairs! You strut around like some kind of nightmarish peacock, imposing your hypocritical, satanic “freedom” on the world. These matters are far above your pay grade! You are way out of your league! Your job is to obey God! Repent of your abominations, your fornication, your murders, your sorceries, your thefts, your idolatry, etc. While you are busy playing god in these global affairs, like a child with his toys, the moth is quietly eating away at your garment, and you will soon stand naked and desolate before the world. The fullness of the Gentiles draws nigh, and when it has come in, your role in this production will be over, and your destruction will come in an instant.
Listen, if you have ears to hear! Repent or Perish! Fear God, and give glory to him, for the hour of his judgment is come!
