There is no difference in the way the Israeli government has handled their crisis with the so called Palestinians. This most recent event with the breach between Egypt and Gaza at the boarder fence is a clear example of “oops here we go again”. There has not been one successful negotiation between Israel and the Philistine wanna bees yet to this day. The attacks have increased, security has been compromised and more lives have been lost. Ben Franklin also commented on this kind of Behavior when he said, “Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security.” If I remember correctly, the American revolution was a success. This success was built on the collective wisdom of men who knew their history. Many of them were men of God and applied scriptural principles to their life and country.
It would just seem to make sense to me that we would want to consult our past failures so that we could ensure our future success. Maybe I am naive but I know one thing their way is absolutely not working.
World opinion is so determined to ignore common history. It would be different if that history were somewhere hidden in the archives of ancient libraries inaccessible to the public. But, the history of the creation of modern Israel is made available in common historical records that can be found almost instantaneously. This is why we are unable to communicate the truth about the land of Israel to people. People are spiritually blinded. This contributes to the fact that they are then unable to think straight and they continue to believe the lies of the enemy of our souls. We must never forget that this is a spiritual battle first. To deny Israel is to deny the God of Israel. To deny God is to deny His salvation to the world through the Messiah Yeshua. Satan does not want Israel to continue because he knows Israel is key in the relationship to fulfilling the prophesies that will usher in the second coming of the Messiah. What must we do? Fast and pray my brothers and sisters, fast and pray. Messiah is coming again soon and there is nothing Satan can do to stop Him.
Here is the problem as I see it from a Biblical perspective. Israel refused to drive out the Philistines from the land when God told them to.
Exo 23:31 "I will fix your boundary from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the River Euphrates; for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you will drive them out before you.
Exo 23:32 "You shall make no covenant with them or with their gods.
Exo 23:33 "They shall not live in your land, because they will make you sin against Me; for if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you."
Now, they have people living in that same region for all intents and purposes under the same name. Palestine is the anglicized version of the word Philistine. It was the name given to the region By Hadrian in 130 AD as an attempt to disassociate the Jew from his land. To make matters worse it was Israel that gave the land to these Philistine wanna bees. But, there will come a time when Jerusalem will again be consecrated to the Lord alone, So, don't despair in world circumstances take hope His word will come to pass.
Zec 14:8 And in that day living waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter.
Zec 14:9 And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one, and His name the only one.
Zec 14:16 Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Booths.
Zec 14:21 Every cooking pot in Jerusalem and in Judah will be holy to the LORD of hosts; and all who sacrifice will come and take of them and boil in them. And there will no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts in that day.
