Israel, Israel what have you done for Palestine!

Ramesh C. Reddy
Pittsburgh Standard

It is astonishing to find out that Israeli Prime Minister Ariei Sharone wants to give concessions to Palestine. The state of Israel and everything in it belongs to Israel for it is the land promised to them by God of Abraham. To give away parts of the land is throwing the gift God has given to them in His face.

On the outer surface it makes sense to give land for peace but at what cost. Israel is strong and protected because the Lord’s hand is upon it. No matter how many Arab nations surround it, no matter who has attacked it; it remains in one piece because they trust in God to help them through it all.

Now if Israel gives away land for peace and for the state of Palestine, it is negotiating with terrorists. Those who bomb Israel and attack Israel want the people of Israel to be scared and to give in and that’s exactly what Israel has done because Sharone got his way without listening to the views of the Likud Party.

I am ashamed to hear the actions of Sharone who fired two of his cabinet ministers to get a majority and give the Gaza back to Palestinians. For the sake of peace, Sharone and his supporters are willing to kick Jewish people out of their homes from the Gaza which they believe was given to them by Abraham.

Peace will not come this way for what price is worth peace when humans give away what God had meant for them. This is no way is to say that Palestinians should be homeless. They can still live in Israel but to want a state of their own especially knowing that the land was given to them by their God is just wrong.

Sharone has made a big mistake by appeasing Palestinian terrorists. It is like people giving into the mark of the beast when the antichrist who would come in the last days promises peace. For the sake of peace for their families and themselves, they do not receive what the Lord Jesus has given them but instead deny the Lord Jesus and agree with the antichrist.

In the end they won’t get peace but horror and pain will continue. Before they realize that they were deceived, it would be too late and Armagaddeon would have come. Interestingly, Israel will be in the main picture in the last days! For Yeshua will come as the Messiah for the Jewish remnant during His second coming and defeat the antichrist bringing a New Jerusalem

The key is not to give into the terrorists or the antichrist but believing in Jesus and accepting what He gives regardless of the circumstances. All those who do that will experience the New Jerusalem with their Messiah!

It helps to keep in mind the the words from the Book of Revelation.

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’" (Revelation 21:1-4, NIV)
