…about that “Roadmap to Peace”

In the continuing one-sided dialogue between God and the Middle East “Peacemakers”, God once again spoke very eloquently yesterday. In the Palestinian elections – which was pushed very hard by the Bush Administration as a key component to the peace process – God allowed not the so-called moderate political party (Fatah) to win, instead He allowed the most brutal anti-Israel terrorist organization Hamas to achieve a landslide victory…thus throwing the so-called “peace-process” into total disarray.

Hamas has been responsible for countless suicide bombings inside Israel, and has as its core intent “the destruction of the state of Israel”. Now they become the official ruling government of the Palestinian people.

It will be interesting to see what the so-called “peacemakers” try next. They will be best served to realize that the true roadmap to Middle-East peace lies not in their man-driven diplomacy, but in God’s written Bible. The Bible is clear: God is working on His Israel project, and peace with her enemies is not part of the plan: You are destroyed, O Israel, because you are against me, against your helper. (Hosea 13:9 NIV); However before all the anti-Semites get too excited, please note that God has definite plans to restore His nation: Return, O Israel, to the LORD your God. Your sins have been your downfall…"I will heal their waywardness and love them freely, for my anger has turned away from them. (Hosea 14:1&4 NIV)

To all the political scientists out there, here is Israel’s REAL roadmap to peace: When I have brought them back from the nations and have gathered them from the countries of their enemies, I will show myself holy through them in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God, for though I sent them into exile among the nations, I will gather them to their own land, not leaving any behind. I will no longer hide my face from them, for I will pour out my Spirit on the house of Israel, declares the Sovereign LORD." (Ezekiel 39:27-29 NIV).

Powerful and true statement you made -- "They will be best served to realize that the true roadmap to Middle-East peace lies not in their man-driven diplomacy, but in God’s written Bible."

Good article.

Ouch...this is a hard truth: The Bible is clear: God is working on His Israel project, and peace with her enemies is not part of the plan

Nevertheless, we continue to pray.

When I heard the news about the election results, it caused me to rejoice in the eminent return of the Lord. If we were to allow ourselves to observe and put all the changes that are occurring in perspective with scripture, the truth would be clear.

I am tempted to continue into a discussion of how the world perceives God, peace, Isreal,and justice but it could make this brief response much longer...
