And Ishmael is demanding that its capital will be half of Jerusalem, WHICH IS ISRAEL'S CAPITAL!!!
And the world can't see the insanity of it all!
God specified which of Abraham's sons He would establish the covenant with:
"And Abraham said to God, 'Oh, that Ishmael (father of the Arabs) might live before You!'This issue is very much a "calling and choosing issue," because the bottom line is man's acceptance or rejection of the Word of God. Throughout history, from the very Garden-of-Eden scene, Satan's method of keeping mankind away from God is his constant temptation to doubt or disbelieve the Word of God.
Then God said: 'No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son,
and you shall call his name Isaac;
I will establish my covenant with HIM
for an EVERLASTING covenant,
and with HIS descendants after him.'"
"Has God indeed said.....?" posited Satan, casting doubt on what God HAD INDEED said.Satan is spoken of throughout the Bible, yet one of his cleverest schemes is to convince man he doesn't exist, or to make man think he is some caricature in a red suit with a long tail. If he can make mankind laugh at the idea, he's succeeded.
Satan's whole method-of-operation is DECEPTION. As it was in the beginning, so it is still.
"Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar, and the father of lies."SATAN’S AGENDA IS: to keep mankind away from the Truth. He doesn't approach with a sign saying, "Here comes Satan, out to destroy you." He doesn't come as an ugly evil that mankind might reject. No, he comes as "an angel of light." He makes sin appealing. He makes deception seem reasonable.
"For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness…"Mankind's only defense against Satan is the Word of God. You will not realize you're being deceived, unless you KNOW the Word of God.
2nd Corinthians 11:14-15
The Israel story is there to choose, to "elect," those who will accept what God has said, in this case about Israel, against what the world so vocally and loudly contradicts. It's a hard one, because Satan has made sure that the "cause of the Palestinians" draws out the sympathy of those who don't understand the story.
It's your choice: either what the world says, what the pundits say, what the media puts out, what professors teach...
what God has said, which will often be evident by the amount of people who make fun of it.
