Jews and The Land, Where We Stand
of Epic Proportion
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that the country was
“at war” on Saturday, October 7th after Palestinian
militants in Gaza fired a deadly barrage of rockets and sent gunmen
into Israeli territory in a major escalation of the long running
conflict between the two sides.1
Christians today see the handiwork of God in the regathering of
the Jewish People to their reborn state—Israel. The news
is filled with the great drama now going on there. Two peoples
are locked in a struggle of epic proportions. To the worldly,
not enlightened by the prophetic lamp of the scriptures,
the struggle is merely political. It is not. At stake is the question,
“Who is God?” Is He the mighty Yahweh of the Torah
or is He the defender of the Muslim or other faiths?
The question is valid and vital. Where we as Christians stand
on this issue is of utmost importance. Are we supporting the Arab
side of the land struggle? If so we may, unwittingly, be opposing
our God. The prophet Ezekiel shows us God’s perspective
on the contested land and the embattled Jewish people. Speaking
to the invading forces of Gog at the time of Israel’s final
battle, God warns, “And thou shalt come up against my people
of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter
days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen
may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before
their eyes.” Ezekiel 38:16 We emphasize the phrases my people
and my land. God tells us in this verse that He considers the
Jewish people and the Land of Israel to be His. Note that this
occurs before the revealment of Messiah to the Jews as recorded
in Zechariah 12:10. The land of Israel and the Jewish people are
inseparable. This is by Divine decree. God promised the land to
Abraham and his seed after him. That promise was passed from Abraham
to Isaac, then to Jacob and on to the twelve tribes of Israel.
Simply put, if Islam succeeds in possessing the land of
Israel and removing the Jewish people from their heritage—the
Bible would be invalidated as the true word of God to men.
We have faith that God’s word will not return to Him void.
The Jewish people will receive all the Biblically promised land.
They will do so even if the whole world opposes them, for God’s
will shall be done.
