I wrote this entry in May of '07 and today, Israel: The Apple of God's Eye" has become an exceptionally increasdingly popular read on Files From Toni. So much so, that I decided to post it again for all the new comers visiting my blog. With all the lies being spewed by the Islamic arab and left mainstream media, and disinformation concerning the Jewish people and the history of Israel, I think it is important to keep the truth about the land of Israel and the Jewish people front page news. Inspite of Roman and Islamic efforts to wipe out the memory of ancient Judea, Samaria, now dubbed the West Bank, and Israel, archaeological finds in the land of Israel testify to the fact Israel just didn't become a nation for the first time in 1948. Israel became a nation before Islam was ever born and has always been The Apple of God's Eye.
Israel first became a nation in 1312 BC, two thousand years before Islam ever saw the light of day. This gives the Jewish people complete and absolute rights to the land of Israel. It wasn't until 586 BC that the Jewish people of the land of Israel, known as Judea, were overtaken. The ancient Jewish Temple in Jerusalem's Old City, where the first Jewish Temple stood on the Temple Mount, was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon at the time, and the ancient Jewish people were either killed or driven from their land. Those that were allowed to remain over the next five hundred years or so, rebuilt the land of Israel, along with a Second Temple on what is called the Temple Mount.
The idea that the Jewish people all of a sudden became present in the land of Israel fifty-nine years ago is an out right fabrication and propaganda by Israel's muslim enemies surrounding Israel, the arab media, and the left mainstream media, who will one day have to give an account to God for their evil lies and deeds against the Jewish people of Israel and around the world.
The psalmist David wrote in Psalm 138:2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth; FOR THOU HAS MAGNIFIED THY WORD ABOVE ALL THY NAME. God will keep His covenant with His people Israel, because He is a God of truth no matter what the nations of the world and the arabs say, and irregardless if these nations recognize Israel or not. Ever since 1948, these hostile arab nations have sought to destroy Israel and the Jewish people in the land of Israel because they want all the land to themselves out of sheer jealously, greed and hatred.
I've got news for these hostile arab enemies of Israel. Israel is on the map to stay, whether they or the UN put it on their stationary or map or not. The fact is, God himself originally promised the land of Israel to the Jewish people through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their descendants, the Jews; NOT ISHMAEL or the arabs or his descendants and there is absolutely nothing anyone can do about it, but accept it. While Israel is not in a covenant relationship with God as a nation at present, the Old Testament clearly tells us that the creator Godl, who is Jesus Christ, will bring the Jewish people back to their ancient homeland after being scattered among the nations for 2,000 years; and this He has done in our day!
Ezekiel, Chapter 36 has been taking place right before our very eyes in our generation. I strongly recommend that everyone reading this go to Ezekiel Chapter 36 in your Bible and read it all for yourself. I quote in part here:
First, from Ezekiel Chapter 36:5 we read:
Therefore, thus saith the Lord God; Surely in the fire of my jealously have I spoken against the residue of the heathen and against all I-du-me-a, which have appointed MY LAND INTO THEIR POSSESSION with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey. In this verse here, take careful note that the Lord God calls the land MY LAND, which means the muslims don't own it and I-du-me-a referes to the descendants of Jacobs's half brother, Esau from which the arabs or muslim nations surrounding Israel originated and whom God is giving a stern warning. .
Secondly, this verse makes it clear that neither do the Jews own it. However, the Lord God can choose to give HIS land to whom ever He desires, and for the reasons He chooses, as the following verses in the same chapter of Ezekiel 36 clarify:
Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
16Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings; their way was before me as the uncleaness of a removed woman.
17Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:
18And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countries; according to their way and according to their doings I judged them.
19And when they entered unto the heathen, wither they went, they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of the Lord, and are gone forth out of his land.
20But I had pity for my holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, wither they went.
21Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God;I DO NOT THIS FOR YOUR SAKES, O HOUSE OF ISRAEL, BUT FOR MINE HOLY NAME'S SAKE, WHICH YE HAVE PROFANED AMONG THE HEATHEN, WHITHER YE WENT
22. And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord , saith the Lord God, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
23. For I will take you among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. ***Here is the confirmation again that God gave the land of Israel to the Jews, by calling the land "your own land."***
24. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
25And a new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
26AndI will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
27AND YE SHALL DWELL IN THE LAND THAT I GAVE TO YOUR FATHERS; AND YE SHALL BE MY PEOPLE, AND I WILL BE YOUR GOD.
The Arabs have no rights to the land of Israel whatsoever. "he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye." Zechariah 2:8 If you touch Israel,you touch the apple of God's eye is what God's prophet Zechariah has forewarned. The Holy Scriptures clearly show that the Lord God gave this piece of land that He calls HIS LAND to Israel, and describes what He is about to do with the Jewish people while in their own land again in the text of Ezekiel Chapter 36.
God, according to the prophet Ezekiel, is not giving His land to Israel because they deserve it or are better than anyone else, but because His great name and His Word is at stake here. He is fulfilling His promise given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; nor do the Jewish leaders of Israel have any right to negotiate away what God had intended for Israel.
