The Impossible Story Of The Jews

Featured

“Depart and go up from here, you and the people
whom you have brought out of the land of Egypt,
to the land of which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,
saying ‘To your descendants I will give it.’
And I will send my Angel before you,
and I WILL DRIVE OUT the Canaanite and the Amorite
and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite.”
Exodus 33:1-2

At this point God had brought the Israelites out of Egypt and they were travelling in the wilderness, on their journey to the promised land. God told Moses that HE would drive out the inhabitants of that land, because he was giving that land to the Israelites.

That was more than 3,000 years ago. Consider the fact that of all those peoples, only the Israelites, (the Jews) remain to this day.

If I had no other reason to believe, the story of Israel alone would be enough to establish my faith.

God took a people thousands of years ago, choosing this people for two reasons:

1. Through their story, God teaches us about himself and about his dealings with mankind.

“For whatever things were written before were written for our learning…”
Romans 15:4

2. It is through this people Israel, that God would sent the Messiah, Jesus Christ, to make an atonement for man’s sins.

That this people alone has survived all these thousands of years is truly miraculous. When was the last time you saw an Amorite or a Perizzite? You haven’t – because they no longer exist. They either died off through wars, or they were assimilated into nations that conquered them. Either way, they disappeared from history. They no longer exist as a people.

The Jews on the other hand, who were contemporary with them, are still with us and the Israel story goes on. Throughout the years of history, Satan has done all in his power to destroy them, because he knows very well their story. Satan knows that the Messiah comes through the Jewish people, and Satan knows that in the last days, that same Messiah will return and that will be the end of Satan’s story. Satan’s fate is the Lake of Fire, therefore he struggles to destroy the Jews so that that day can’t come.

The plots of the destruction of the Jews have continued throughout history. When Moses was born, Satan caused the Pharoah to command that all Jewish babies be murdered, and there was a great slaughter throughout the land of Egypt. Moses was spared because he was found in a basket by Pharoah’s daughter, and he was such a beautiful child that she took him and raised him herself. Had Moses not been spared, the Israel story would have ended.

Later, when the day came for the Messiah to be born, Satan caused Herod to kill all the male children two years old and under. Jesus was not murdered because God spoke to Joseph to take Mary and the child and flee to Egypt until Herod’s death.

The Jews have been the object of Satan’s wrath throughout history. In the 7th century, Satan raised up a man called Mohammed, who would forever try to destroy the Jews. Later, the church of Rome would persecute the Jews through the Inquisitions and the Crusades. In more recent times, Satan raised up a man named Hitler, who was determined to destroy all the Jews from the face of the earth. He succeeded in slaughtering six million of them, but he didn’t get them all. And currently -the Muslims have proclaimed very publicly, very loudly, and very clearly that they intend to finish the job, in the horrific rise of Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Fatah, and Hezbollah, all Muslim peoples who are determined to destroy them. In fact, right now they have tiny Israel surrounded. And currently, Israel’s greatest enemy is Iran, who is behind many of the terrorist groups, and who will be destroyed, along with Russia in the Exekiel 38 war which God himself will settle.

Well …the Jebusites are gone, the Hittites are gone, Pharoah, Herod, and Hitler are gone.

The Jews remain.

There has never been a people so continuously persecuted and hunted down as the Jewish people. Outside of God preserving them, they would have been destroyed a long time ago. Yet the Jew remains. And not only remains, but the Israelites have been returned to the homeland of their fathers from which they had been scattered for over 2,000 years. The same Jerusalem is their capital. And Hebrew, the language lost throughout those years is once again the language they speak. The land that went barren while they were gone, is once again flowing with milk and honey.

How is this possible?

Outside of God preserving them, it ISN’T.

When you understand the Israel story, all that’s happening in today’s news makes sense. It explains it all. We know where it comes from and where it’s going. We know that the generation seeing Israel back in the land of her fathers is the one trigger that tells us we’re in “the last days.”

What’s next? The great Tribulation through which Israel will be prepared to recognize her Messiah, the one they rejected so long ago.

When the Messiah comes, they will ask:

“What are those wounds in your hands?”
Zechariah 13:6

“…then they will look on me whom they pierced. Yes, they will
mourn for him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for
him as one grieves for a firstborn.
Zechariah 12:10

Right now we’re poised for the rest of the story. All the signs say we’re almost there. This is not a good time to be out of favor with the Lord. The end of the ages is upon us.

For Palestinians Selling Land To A Jew Is Punishable By Death

PA head Mahmoud Abbas

After the barbaric story we have all followed of Jamal Khashoggi and his horrific murder at the hands of admitted Saudi agents, we can see a growing campaign on the part of Middle Eastern governments to intimidate, frighten, and ultimately neutralize prominent critics.

This sometimes includes the less barbaric, but likewise criminal attempt to cut people’s reputations into pieces in order to terrify them into silence. The United States must take strong action to protect its citizens and residents from Middle Eastern governments that wish to silence them.

Unfortunately, numerous worldwide governments have failed this test, routinely apprehending the very citizens they are meant to protect before meting out brutal interrogations or extraditing them to criminal states.

During World War II, Nazi Germany dispatched secret police forces to hunt down known or suspected dissidents — a tactic aptly termed Nacht und Nebel (Night and Fog) to describe the darkness that surrounded the victims’ sudden disappearance. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union earned a brutal reputation for summoning or detaining men and women only for them to then disappear forever.

Argentina’s military juntas were especially notorious for their practice of putting detained citizens aboard aircraft and casting them into the sea. It is thought that between 1976 and 1983, up to 30,000 people were killed or disappeared this way, earning them one of history’s most haunting names: Los Desaparecidos — “the disappeared.”

In Iran, this seems to be a problem on repeat: following riots in 1999, 2003, 2009, and even this year, hundreds of Iranian protesters — most of them students — were detained, with dozens yet to be so much as located.

Just last week in the Middle East, another man disappeared; this time, he was an American citizen. A Palestinian-American who, according to Arab-language media reports, is named Isam Jalal Akel, lives in Jerusalem and was discreetly apprehended by Palestinian Authority (PA) police. His arrest has been something of a shadow play.

The Palestinian Authority did not disclose their detainment of the man to Israeli military and police commanders, as they’re required to. In a sharp break from international diplomatic protocol, even the American embassy wasn’t informed of the arrest, though the man holds an American passport.

And what was his “crime”? Doing business with a Jew.

He had been involved, it is alleged, with the sale of a home in East Jerusalem to a Jewish buyer. In the morally skewed universe of the Palestinian Authority, that is, quite literally, a capital crime.

The concept of killing a man for doing business with a Jew was put into force by the Jordanians in 1948 during the kingdom’s occupation of Judea and Samaria. From there, it would be incorporated into the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO)’s legal code in 1979, which enforced the penalty of execution on any of those “traitors” caught “transferring positions to the enemy.”

Since then, the law has been further clarified. The term “positions,” as it turns out, refer to any sort of land or real estate. “Transferring” has been elucidated by PA President Mahmoud Abbas to include any act of “diverting,” “selling,” or even just “renting” a property. As for the “enemies,” this refers to “an enemy state or one of its subjects,” which, coming from the PLO, refers explicitly to Jews. The law has been reaffirmed by Palestinian officials on several occasions — in 1973, 1979, 1997, 2010, 2014, and 2018.

But the truth is that this kind of Jew-removal goes back farther than Abbas, the PLO, or the Jordanians: it is reminiscent of a series of laws enacted in Nazi Germany in late 1930s, to other acts of discrimination in Europe and the Arab and Muslim world for centuries.

And since Mahmoud Abbas recently assured his captive populace that “in a final resolution, we would not see the presence of a single Israeli — civilian or soldier — on our lands,” it seems quite clear that the Palestinian Authority is dead serious about bringing these appalling Nazi, European, and Islamic Judenrein policies back to life. (The Bible foretells the story quite differently.)

The Palestinian Authority has only twice judicially executed those convicted of selling a property to a Jew, and Mahmoud Abbas said in 2014 that although still a clear-cut capital crime, those engaged in real estate dealings with Jews would be punished with life imprisonment — with hard labor. But even as Abbas said that, official Fatah spokesman Osama al-Qawasmi noted on the record that any such “traitors are destined to die a humiliating death.”

After the Oslo Accords, the Palestinian leadership could legally kidnap those suspected of dealing with Jews. In 1996, the newly-minted PA security forces were accused by Israel of kidnapping and killing alleged land dealers.

The next year, Amnesty International reported that “dozens of those suspected of selling land to Jews were arrested and … held without charge or trial.” The report noted, “Torture during prolonged incommunicado detention of this group has been systematic,” adding that “extrajudicial killings by the PA targeted those … allegedly involved in selling land to Jews.”

That year, the disappearance of 70-year-old Farid Bashiti, accused by the PA of selling property to Jews, made international headlines. His family was told by Palestinian officials that he died in a car accident, a lie that quickly came undone after he was found bludgeoned to death, with his hands cuffed and skull crushed. Farid was denied a Muslim burial, and his family was forbidden to erect a mourner’s tent.

Though the PA fraudulently denied ordering his death, the Palestinian Minister of Justice Freih Abu Middein gloated about the murder, saying that “everybody now realizes the danger of selling land to a Jew.”

Yes, fear is what they are seeking to instill. And it is up to the United States and other governments around the world to stand up to this barbaric practice.
