By now, I guess most have seen the images of destruction and human suffering on the streets of Gaza. Pictures of the civilian victims of the Israeli air strikes and now the ground invasion have flooded the media, with and without propagandas. Images of suffering children, in particular are heart-wrenching.

The reason for this violence? Hamas, the fanatical Islamists who rule Gaza and who have used the given land as a launching pad for firing rockets into Israel. According to the Israeli PM in an interview, 80 – 90 rockets has been launched into Israel’s soil on a daily basis, with its citizens living in fear and chaos. Repeated warnings have fell on deaf ears.

In 2005, Israel withdrew its military and evicted Israeli settlers from occupied Gaza and turned the land over to the Palestinians. Subsequently the people of Gaza voted in the Hamas – an open terrorist organization whose charter commits itself to the destruction of Israel.

Since then, Hamas and other Gazan terrorists have fired more than 6,000 rockets into Israel. Hamas deliberately and sadistically locates its military resources among civilians, cynically hoping for a propaganda victory.

I don’t have an answer for everything, many things have simply gone wrong. On my own hindsight:
– Israel should not have evicted its own settlers from Gaza;
– Gaza should not have been given away;
– Hamas should not have been voted in;
– Hamas should not been given to rule.

Gracing GazaMore importantly, Israel must know that they are the thorn in the flesh of the world. There is no point in trading their land for peace because true peace will not come to them that way. That is the reality. The Palestinian struggle is no longer about creating an independent state. It is about being a front-line participant in the Iranian-led jihad to destroy Israel, evolving from a nationalist to a religious war. With a total annihilation of Israel, along with that, means the total destruction of God’s convenant; not only to the Jewish people but also His adopted children, that’s us.

Cynical as it may seem, whoever is proclaiming everlasting peace for Israel is a bloodly lier, with blood on his hands.  They were lying prophets who claimed peace would come to Jerusalem when there was no peace. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!’  Ezekiel 13:16    The Bible even prophesied in Revelations 6-20, a fake peace (treaty) lasting 7 seven years, and there will be no peace in Israel or on Earth until Jesus (Yeshua), the Messiah returns.

While the world condemns Israel, let’s stand in faith together. The glorious time is near.

“Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place. Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.  Matthew 24:32-34

PS: Let us also remember and pray for our Palestinian brothers and sisters in-Christ, that the Lord watches and cover over them.

    Hi Jacqueline,

    Thanks for your encouragement. After a year on wordpress, I think I managed to figure most of the stuff, but am still clueless on facebook. I guess you just need to play around with the functions and buttons.

    More importantly, I think the thoughts behind the postings and the Source of where it all comes from are ultimately what makes the difference.

    God bless!

    David
