Israel, The Land of Jesus

Daily we either read, hear, or view some new evil that is happening in the Middle East. Men and women have bombs strapped to them and blow up themselves along with as many Jews and Christians as possible. These people have no respect for the law or the tenants of the Bible. They only want conquest and a land that is not theirs. The Bible stipulates that Israel owns all of the land between the Euphrates River and the Mediterranean Sea.

Deuteronomy 11:22-25

22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;
23 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.
24 Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be.
25 There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the LORD your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto you.

Now all of the ones who claim to be Arab know that the Bible dictates that the land that they are on is the property of Israel. Also Israel has the promise that the Lord will fight for them against all enemies. Throughout all of the recent history of Israel we have seen the Lord defend his people that the ones who hate Israel have resorted to suicide bombing with killing themselves for they have lost all hope. Satan has these people so bound that they believe that they can fight against God and win.

I had a friend who fought in the 6 day war. He told me about a petrol that he was on in the desert. They discovered an Egyptian Armored Battalion and all they hoped for was to get away not noticed. All of the sudden the Egyptians started jumping out of their tank and fleeing on foot. When they captured some Egyptians they were told that the Egyptians saw angles with swords drawn against them. They said that they could not fight against the God of Israel. This has gone on throughout history when the Lord used various methods to save his people from those who would like to destroy Israel. Look at the list of adversaries that have failed:

All of these have failed and will fail. Israel will have all of the territory that has been promised to them by God. Any nation who stands in the way of Israel will be found the enemy of God and will find themselves fighting against God and his angles. Today there are some who will resort to killing themselves to fight against God.

Now Jesus Christ was born a direct descendant of King David and Abraham. He is the savior. He is the one who has been promised as the savior of Israel and us. He is the one who orchestrates the protection of Israel against all of her enemies. The Bible promises that those who bless Israel God will bless, but those who curse Israel will be cursed of God.

Genesis 12:1-3

1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Revelation 19:11-21

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

With all of the nations of the world gathering together to make war on Israel the final battle is coming where the Lord will lead his saints to destroy all the enemies of Israel.
