Israel, Palestine Fight For The Promised Land

There has never been a state in that geographical area known as Palestine, that was not Jewish.    What Does The Bible Say About A Future Palestinian State?: ( https://nightwatchsite.wordpress.com/what-does-the-bible-say-about-a-future-palestinian-state/

WHY DO JEWS AND ARABS/MUSLIMS HATE EACH OTHER?

First understand, not all Arabs are Muslims, and not all Muslims are Arabs.  While a majority of Arabs are Muslims, there are many non-Muslim Arabs. Further, there are significantly more non-Arab Muslims in areas such as Indonesia and Malaysia than there are Arab Muslims.  Second, not all Arabs hate Jews, not all Muslims hate Jews, and not all Jews hate Arabs and Muslims.  We must be careful to avoid stereotyping people.   However, generally speaking, Arabs and Muslims have a dislike of and distrust for Jews, and vice-versa.

  • The Jews are descendants of Abraham’s son Isaac.
  • The Arabs are descendants of Abraham’s son Ishmael.
  • With Ishmael being the son of a slave woman (Genesis 16:1-16) and Isaac being the promised son who would inherit the blessings of Abraham (Genesis 21:1-3), obviously there would be some animosity between the two sons.
  • As a result of Ishmael’s mocking Isaac (Genesis 21:9), Sarah talked Abraham into sending Hagar and Ishmael away (Genesis 21:11-21).
  • Likely, this caused even more contempt in Ishmael’s heart towards Isaac.  An angel prophesied to Hagar that Ishmael would “live in hostility toward all his brothers” (Genesis 16:11-12).  Read More: ( http://www.gotquestions.org/Jews-Arabs.html

To this day, the fight over the birthright continues in this dis-functional family.  The covenant to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is not recognized by the descendants of Ishmael.

SO WHAT IS GOD’S COVENANT TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB? 

God determined to call out a special people for Himself through whom He would bring blessing to all the nations.  So the biblical patriarchs – Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – are the line of men God used to establish the nation of Israel.  Read more:http://www.gotquestions.org/biblical-patriarchs.html#ixzz37jb4Ei00

NOTE – God reaffirmed these promises amid the sins of the patriarchs, which further emphasizes the unconditional nature of the Abrahamic Covenant.

The important element of the Abrahamic Covenant, however, demands a future fulfillment with Messiah’s kingdom rule:

That ultimate blessing will issue in the forgiveness of sins and Messiah’s glorious kingdom reign on earth.  Read more: http://www.gotquestions.org/Abrahamic-covenant.html#ixzz37jqTSyP0

WHAT IS ISRAEL’S ROLE IN THE END TIMES?: ( http://www.gotquestions.org/end-times-Israel.html

Conflict in Israel has been a reality whenever Israel has existed as a nation.  Why? According to the Bible, it is because God has a special plan for the nation of Israel, and Satan wants to defeat that plan.  Satanically influenced hatred of Israel—and especially Israel’s God—is the reason Israel’s neighbors have always wanted to see Israel destroyed.

The persecutors of Israel will come and go, but the persecution will remain until the second coming of Christ.  As a result, conflict in Israel is not a reliable indicator of the soon arrival of the end times.

However, the Bible does say there will be terrible conflict in Israel during the end times.  That is why the time period is known as “the Tribulation, the Great Tribulation,” and the “time of Jacob’s trouble.” (Jeremiah 30:7).

Here is what the Bible says about Israel in the last days:

WHERE DO THE REST OF US FIT IN?

We all (non-Jews/even Arabs & Muslims, should they choose) were adopted – grafted in – to the promise of the eternal kingdom, by Jesus: ( https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+11%3A11-24&version=ESV;KJV

“God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten son (Jesus – the seed of Abraham), that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  John 3:16

  • Ephesians 1:5 – Having predestined us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will
  • Romans 8:14-19 – For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
  • Galatians 3:26 – For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
  • Galatians 3:29 – And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

All we have to do is believe and receive Jesus – be reborn of water and the Spirit.

  • John 3:3 – Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
  • John 1:13 – Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
  • 1 Peter 1:23 – Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

“For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.  And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.” Gal 3:28-29

Satan has always wanted God’s people dead.  When he couldn’t destroy God’s creation with Adam and Eve, he moved on to God’s chosen nation, Israel.  When he doesn’t succeed in destroying Israel, he will send his seed (the Antichrist) to try to defeat the seed of God (Jesus) at the battle of Armageddon; but Jesus will crush the AC (Gen 3:15).  We know who wins.

  • “And they came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and devoured them.  And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”  Rev 20:9-10

For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, “I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE,” says the Lord.  “AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; and I will welcome you.  And I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to Me,” Says the Lord Almighty.  2 Corinth 6:16-17
