6-30-2012- WHY ISRAEL IS BEING HARASSED


NUMBERS 33: 55 =  BUT IF YOU, (ISRAEL), DON'T DRIVE OUT THE INHABITANTS OF THE LAND (CANAAN), FROM IN FRONT OF YOU, THEN THOSE YOU ALLOW TO REMAIN, WILL BECOME LIKE THORNS IN YOUR EYES AND STINGS IN YOUR SIDES-THEY WILL HARASS YOU IN THE LAND WHERE YOU ARE LIVING.


"REMARKS"

IT INTRIGUES ME THAT ISRAEL, WHO IS MOSTLY ORTHODOX JEWS, CAN'T SAY TO THEMSELVES, OUR FOREFATHERS LEFT US THIS MESS, WITH THE PALESTINIANS AND OTHERS.

SOMETIMES I ALSO WONDER WHY, KNOWING THE SCRIPTURES, THEY DON'T GO AND CONQUER THE REST OF THEIR TERRITORY THAT BELONGS TO THEM.

THE ANSWER IS FOUND IN JOSHUA 23: 11-13 = 

(11) TAKE GOOD HEED THEREFORE, UNTO YOURSELVES, THAT YOU LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD.

(12) ELSE, IF YOU DO IN ANY WISE GO BACK AND CLEAVE TO THE REMNANT OF THESE NATIONS, EVEN THESE THAT REMAIN AMONG YOU, AND SHALL MAKE MARRIAGES WITH THEM AND GO IN UNTO THEM AND THEY TO YOU:

(13) KNOW FOR A CERTAIN, THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD, WILL NO MORE DRIVE OUT ANY OF THESE NATIONS FROM BEFORE YOU; BUT THEY SHALL BE SNARES AND TRAPS TO YOU, AND SCOURGES TO YOUR SIDES AND THORNS IN YOUR EYES, UNTIL YOU PERISH FROM OFF THIS LAND, WHICH THE LORD GOD HAS GIVEN YOU.

THEN AGAIN, YOU WOULD HAVE THE UN AND OTHER FORCES, WHO WOULD CONDEMN ISRAEL FOR SUCH ACTIONS. THEN AGAIN, IS GOD, YAH'WEH, NOT THE GOD OF ISRAEL AND LEADS THEM TO VICTORY?

ISRAEL WAS SUPPOSED TO DRIVE OUT EVERY NATION FROM THE RED SEA TO THE EUPHRATES, BUT THEY DIDN'T AND THEY, THE OTHER PAGAN NATIONS, BECAME A SNARE AND A TRAP TO ISRAEL, BECAUSE OF THEIR gods AND THEIR TRADITIONS.

THEREFORE, GOD, YAH'WEH, SENT THE ASSYRIANS AND THE BABYLONIANS INTO ISRAEL AND JUDAH, TO TAKE THEM AND PUNISH THEM AND DISPERSE THEM THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, FROM THE LAND HE PROMISED TO ABRAHAM, BECAUSE THEY DID NOT FINISH WIPING OUT ALL THE OTHER TRIBES IN THE LAND OF CANAAN AND PURIFY IT FROM PAGAN WORSHIPERS.

THAT LEAVES PLACES LIKE SYRIA AND DAMASCUS AND PART OF IRAQ AND OTHER AREAS, THAT WOULD HAVE ESTABLISHED ISRAEL AS A DOMINEERING NATION, WITH MANY SERVANTS, TO SERVE THEM, HAD THEY CONQUERED ALL GOD, YAH'WEH, TOLD THEM TOO.

TODAY, THEY ARE HARASSED, AND HAVE NO PEACE BECAUSE OF THIS SITUATION.

THAT IS WHY THE SCRIPTURES SAYS, PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
