“But now, O Jacob, listen to the LORD who created you.
O Israel, the one who formed you says,
“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1 NLT–Read entire chapter)
No matter what has happened, historically–God’s plan for Israel has always been revealed–in His Word and in what He does.
We tend to forget–in the Western World– (not sure that others ever knew) that God has never uttered a word that He did not intend to be established in the heavens and never changed by man–even though we try.
Since I cannot condone hatred of anyone, by anyone, I must admonish those who think they can destroy what God has already planned–for His glory.
Hatred of people–simply because of envy of God’s chosen people–is never acceptable nor is the plan for mass murder of people who simply do not think the way others think, worship how they worship, or even pray how they pray. Every individual on God’s earth has a right to worship Him–however they choose–without interference or decimation by others. Who do people think they are to “think for God?”
God is not impressed with stupidity or the thought that “virgins” will be a reward in heaven. There will be no need for “sexual encounters” in heaven because we will be “pure spirit-beings” and will function as such. No need for food, water or any other “human-fleshly” need.
How anyone could possibly think that the dead will need anything is beyond me–but then–that’s because I believe what God has already said,” the dead know nothing” (Eccelessiastes). The saddest part of watching the crisis in the Middle East is that it will continue until Jesus returns and then–only then–will we all know the truth, but it will be too late for those who have been led to believe a lie.
Father, in the name of Jesus, guide us into understanding of Your Word through the words of the prophets of old and Holy Spirit speaking now. Help all to understand that You have always had a plan for Your children–both naturally and spiritually–and Your plan will prevail in the face of all adversity for no weapon formed against us shall by any means prosper. We thank You for hearing and answering prayer and guiding those in leadership with wisdom from above–so all will know–You are God!
