"Then the word
of the Lord came to me saying, "Son of man, when the house of Israel was
living in their own land, they defiled it by their ways and their deeds; their
way before Me was like the uncleanness of a woman in her impurity. Therefore,
I poured out My wrath on them for the blood which they had shed on the land,
because they had defiled it with their idols. Also I scattered them among the
nations, and they were dispersed throughout the lands. According to their
ways and their deeds I judged them. When they came to the nations where they
went, they profaned My holy name, because it was said of them, 'These are the
people of the Lord; yet they have come out of His land.' But I had concern
for My holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations
where they went.
"Therefore, say to the house of Israel, 'Thus says the Lord God,"
It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am about to act, but for
My holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you went. And I
will vindicate the holiness of My great name which has been profaned among
which you have profaned in their midst. Then the nations will know that I am
the Lord," declares the Lord God, "when I prove Myself holy among
you in their sight. For I will take you from the nations, gather you from all
the lands, and bring you into your own land.""
(Ezekiel 36:16-24 NASB)Ó
What is happening
in Israel and the Middle East is not a Jewish vs. Arab issue. What is
happening in Israel and the Middle East today, is that the Lord God is
vindicating the holiness of His great name! The Lord God is re-settling the
Jews in the land of Israel, according to his promise to Abraham, Isaac and
Jacob. The Lord God said He would give the Jewish people the land forever,
and He will do it!
The question is, will we be supportive of the Lord God's plan to vindicate
the holiness of His great name, by encouraging the Jews to resettle within
the Biblical guidelines of Israel; or will we be found opposing the Lord
God's plan to vindicate the holiness of His great name, and thus putting our
nation is the greatest peril possible-found opposing the Lord God's plan to
vindicate the holiness of His great name?
Please remember, this is for the sake of our Lord God vindicating the
holiness of His great name!
