MembersGaza, Iran and the Apocalypse

The truth about what is happening in the Middle East is right before our eyes, but we cannot see it because truth is hard to swallow.

Because the truth is often so difficult to grasp, we keep making the same mistakes. Like an itch that refuses to be relieved, we never seem to be able to scratch deep enough.

If, and this is true, Israel’s covenant with God is everlasting, then there is no escaping our destiny of facing and fighting the darkest evils of human nature. This is the war we are in now; the battle we have been fighting since the beginning of time. For we are Israel: he who struggles with God and with man (including ourselves) and prevails.

It is the battle for the hearts and minds of the people of Israel to return to the One who led us to this troubled Land by following His words and ways to ultimate victory. To win, Israel must recognize the divine calling etched in her very name – a prince of God.

 

The truth will set us free

Covenanted Israel has been and will continuously be faced with global rejection. There is no way around the...

    Fantastic! I believe the only thing left unsaid is that Israel’s calling to be a light unto the nations primarily involves adherence to God’s Law. Once Israel is in unity about living as God commands, without accepting sin in the camp, God
    will destroy their enemies and uphold His borders. He alone is Commander in Chief!!

  2. David Bergsland says:

    Excellent! I pray for Israel constantly. The Lord’s plan is magnificent. But, the ultimate test for a believer is the need to live by faith. The Lord knows how to make it tough. But He is worthy, and it’s all far beyond worthwhile. The plan is pure peace and joy. The more I get to know Him. the more impressed I am.

    When asking why, don’t forget to include what was said by your ancestors as Jesus stood before Pilate, “His blood be on us and on our children.”

    Jesus was destined to die on a Roman cross, but the people cursed themselves when they could have remained silent.

    • Susan says:

      You are misinterpreting “His blood be upon us”. It is the exact opposite: this group (who was not the same crowd that yelled, “Crucify Him!”) were the COMMON people. They weren’t privy to Yeshua’s trial. Pilate gathered the other group at Caiphas’ house in a completely different part of the city. And it is this group-the ELITE- politically connected Romans and those in bed with them that wanted Him crucified. In fact, contrary to modern movies, it was done secretly and at night because the leaders feared the people’s reaction.

      What the common people were saying (like all who profess Yeshua) is that they wanted to be under the blood of their beloved Messiah.

    This takes me back to David’s zoom call just after 7/10. When you spoke then about the need for humility in Israel, you bought God’s word. I love this article – so, so true! Yeshua is worthy of it all – he gave His life for His people – all of us who submit to Him as our Lord and Saviour , grafted in to the vine. His plan is being fulfilled – He is coming soon, and all evil must come to a head so it can be destroyed. It will be tough, but we are all being refined as gold is refined. We stand with you all, we love you so much! Constantly praying for Israel – leaders, soldiers and people.

    Well said. You ought to speak this out loud to your people who are already gathered to the Promised Land, until they all “get it”!
