Conflict in Israel – Fear is No Option
The current conflict in Israel was inevitable. Nations around the world and even many Christians have turned against Israel. Biblical scripture predicts this, so it shouldn’t come as a shock to those that love Israel and know and understand the Bible. But this should not induce fear. Fear is not an option. Simply put, the rapture is coming soon, and true Christians should spread the gospel. We need to get as many people rapture-ready as possible. So, fear is not an option. Not for us because of the promise of the rapture. Not for the Israelis because they are a powerful nation that God supernaturally protects. If every country on the planet tried to wipe out Israel all at once, they would fail. God has supernaturally defended Israel in the past and will supernaturally protect them now and in the future Ezekiel 38-39 war.
Conflict in Israel – Fear is No Option
Above I wrote what I believe, but what follows is why I believe what I wrote. Israel is the apple of God’s eye – His chosen people, and they cannot be extinguished by anyone or anything.
Genesis 12:3 – [speaking about Israel] “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
Psalms 122:6 – “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.”
Isaiah 60:12 – “For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.”
Zechariah 2:8 – “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.”
Malachi 3:6 – “For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”
Isaiah 43:1-28 – “But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.”
What Should Christians Do?
Support Israel in every way! We should support them through our prayers. All of us should buy Israeli products. We, as a nation, should sell them goods and weapons. We should provide them monetary aid as well. Also, we should ignore the evil things being said about them through the mass media corporations. It seems like the whole world is against Israel, but it’s not truly the people of the world. It’s evil media propaganda making it look like everyone is against Israel, and they are leading people astray. Unfortunately, the uninformed masses that don’t understand what’s truly happening are taking the side of Hamas and the Palestinians. When in actuality, Hamas is committing horrible atrocities against the Palestinians.
Over 400 misfired rockets fired from Gaza have landed in Gaza, killing Palestinians. In addition, Hamas uses Palestinians as human shields by placing rocket launchers in residential areas, schools, hospitals, and other civilian populated areas.
On the other hand, the Israelis go to almost unbelievable lengths to protect civilians. They have “door knocker” bombs that are nonlethal. They drop them on buildings to let the civilians know that the building is targeted. So, the civilians can flee. The Israeli Defense Force also calls and texts the building superintendents to provide further warning and a timeframe for evacuation. Israel is awesome, and they protect civilians at almost all costs. Sometimes civilians die, but that has always happened in war and will always happen in war. It is unavoidable and always has been inevitable.
Conclusion to Conflict in Israel – Fear is No Option
As believers, we should not fear anything that’s going on right now. We shouldn’t fear wars, viruses, conflicts, shortages, famines, the moral degradation of our society, or anything else. God is in charge! I believe we will soon be raptured out of this crazy world. So, fear is no option for Christians. Also, fear is no option for Israel because the creator God of the universe will preserve them. Even in the tribulation, God will preserve one-third of them to live during Christ’s thousand-year reign. Only those without Christ as their Savior should fear! And Wow – they should be terrified!!! So, all you Christians out there, share Christ with anyone that will listen. We need as many people rapture-ready as possible. Be blessed and have a great day!!!
