This week, Israel is 70 years old, and the hatred against her grows worse and worse, and the lies grow even faster. So, as someone who knows Israel from the inside out, I am committed to bringing you the truth to help neutralize those lies and that hatred – lies and hatred that will do great damage to your soul and even… your life.
And yes, I know the truth.
I know the history, the language and the people. I lived there for 15 of my 23 years in Asia. More importantly, I know the Bible and God’s plans for that tiny patch of land.
Over the past few months, I’ve been hitting you with one series after another. So, you’re probably glad that I’ve given you something of a breather, this week. I’m also glad because a series is a lot more work than a bunch of individual articles. We’ll see how long this ‘breather’ lasts.
Unfortunately, this is probably the calm before a storm. The Fall seems to be the time when most banks decide to fail, and markets catch cold when investors come back from Summer break and look at their portfolios. Ebola looms on the horizon. And, let’s not forget that dim-witted monkeys are still playing with matches in the bomb factory that we call Ukraine.
You haven’t heard me say much about Israel, because a huge threat looms over you, and I must direct my writing towards that threat. But, there are moments in time when the threat against Israel and the threat against the Body of Christ coincide.
Just as you are being lied to about what is really going on in the world, you are also being lied to about Israel, and especially Gaza. And, when the truce between Hamas and Israel runs out at 5 p.m. (EST), the war of guns and lies will begin again.
And, we have young, Christian Israelis in the Israel Defense Forces, on the sharp end of this battle. I would like to bring you a word from one such young Christian Israeli who has been fighting on the front lines.
