by Tom Brennan,Scripture instructs us to trust neither in princes nor in horses. Many of us are relieved that PM Netanyahu was re-elected after what seemed like a close campaign. Most of us are dismayed and even angry at the conduct of the American President and the alleged interference in the campaign by funding other candidates and the immature behavior after the result. Many Americans are calling for an official investigation. But we must remember that politics are a secular event, composed of promises and compromises: the Bible permits no compromise in its instructions. Israel is a secular state and does have its faults and imperfections, any Israeli will readily admit that. But Israel is the only nation in the Middle East that protects the rights of all citizens and the free exercise of their faith. Israel’s enemies do not. As churches are destroyed, Christians in Iraq and Syria and other lands within the bloody reach of the Caliphate and Iran brutes re murdered, a world remains silent. In the 1930’s and 40’s as millions of Jews, Poles, mentally handicapped and other “untermenschen” were methodically terminated, the world powers stayed silent. As PM Netanyahu said before Congress, “No More”. Christians must undersign this.
Israel’s physical survival has been miraculous to be sure. As Christians we are duty bound to pray for the continuation of whatsoever miracles as may be necessary. As negotiators seem bent on an agreement that will allow Iran to develop its nuclear program, we must pray that wisdom will overcome expediency and that outlaw, Mahdist nation will not be allowed to take over the region as it has declared its intent to do so. As Western nations continue to live in a fantasy world where a Caliphate nation openly declares its intent to force the globe to submit to its sect of Islam while another violent group espouses its intent as well, Israel and its allies must form the barrier to this brutal ideology.
The world can place confidence that Israel will continue to exist no matter what political machinations emanate from other world capitals and dens of schemes and plots. Pharaohs, Kings, Emperors and Fascists could not extinguish the people of Israel and no current ruler of Mahdi will succeed. The daily battle against rising anti-Israel and anti-Semitic forces, aided and abetted by a subservient media will go on and intensify. All of this was foretold in the Bible as well as the outcome of victory. As Christian supporters of The Land we must trust not in our princes or horses but in the Book that is still true and real after 3,500 years.Share this page with your friends
