Conflict in Israel or in our hearts with God?
Arabs and the Israelis have been fighting since time immemorial over that tiny plot of land called Israel. Their battle is not one of flesh and blood, but of spiritual things. The Bible states that the last great battle will pit Israel against the rest of the Middle East and its allies. How did it all begin and why have they remained mortal enemies for thousands of years?
Brothers as-sallamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh!
Let me quote my answers of my Muslim brother to the question of racism in Bible:
Dear Mohammad salam,
Let me remind you that God chose Ibrahim/Abraham to reveal Himself. He separated Ibrahim and his family to be their God. Later these people were called and considered as Jewish nation. Abraham, the founding father of the Jewish nation of Israel and of Arab nation, was a man of great faith and obedience to the will of God. His name in Hebrew means “father of a multitude.” Originally called Abram, or “exalted father,” God changed his name to Abraham as a symbol of the covenant promise to multiply his descendants into a great nation that God would call His own. In Genesis you can read how God blessed Ishmael who was son of Ibraham by promising that there will be a great nation from Ishmael – Arabs…there is a number of other blessings to Ishmael uttered by God too…
So, we know that Ibrahim had 2 sons: Isaac (father of Jewish nation) and Ishmael (father of Arab nation). So, how you can say that God ignored Arabs? He loved Arab always but they just could not stay with Jews together as one nation because of jealousy of Sara (she was wife of Ibrahim). Other wife of Ibrahim was Agar (Egyptian) and she should leave Ibrahim because she had bad relationships with Sara. When Ishmael was dying in desert, God saved him…God was always with Arabs but Arabs should live separately…but not far from Jews. If you remember God even called Egyptians as his people!
In Isaiah 19:25
“The LORD Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.”
What does the word Israel mean? Jacob (son of Isaac) also known as Israel “persevere with God” was the third patriarch of the Jewish people, and ancestor of the twelve tribes of Israel. Over the past three thousand years, the name “Israel” has meant in common and religious usage both the Land of Israel and the entire Jewish nation. According to the Bible, God renamed Jacob to Israel after successfully wrestling with an angel of God. So, why I say that Israel is Arab nation too? Because the same blood of Ibrahim in us and in you Arabs. You called as great nation by God and we Jews are called as great nation too. We have one father and ONE God who saved your father Ishmael in desert..the same God saved later descendants of Jacob from slavery in Egypt by many miracles. So, we worship ONE God who said in more than 300 prophecies through prophets that His Son will save Arab nation and Jewish nation because there is only ONE God…One FAITH…One Way to God- Issa Ibn Allah…who is able to find this WAY will live eternally. Jesus Lord, please allow Muhammad to BE one of saved Arabs like his father Ibrahim was saved by You! Amen.
Israel is important, however, because God made promises to Israel that will be fulfilled. Brothers, word “Israel” is used by God in the Bible as symbol of PEOPLE who are CHOSEN by God to reveal Himself to other nations and to SEPARATE them from the sins of the world by showing us an example of HOLY Life in God Jesus. We are separated from sins in this world to be prepared to enter the World to COME (the Promised Land) or the Kingdom of Heaven. Our life is purification and refinement process to be refined like GOLD from solutions and alloys called sins and iniquities. My friend in Lebanon openly acknowledges that He is ARAB and Israel according to the promised of ONE True God! Arabs, you are Israel who should be saved by God Jesus and separated from your sins and iniquities to be holy sons of HOLY GOD in the Kingdom of Heaven on the earth and to come in another world prepared for us by our God!
The gift of the promised Land (which is symbol of the Kingdom of Heaven) to Abraham and his descendants was based on an unconditional covenant from God Himself
Genesis 17:7-8 states: “And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your descendants after you. And I will give to you and to your descendants after you, the land of your sojourning, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
So, Arabs you have the hope to be with God because He established an everlasting covenant with our father Ibrahim to BE our GOD!
The sign of that covenant for Abraham and his descendants was circumcision. Twice in this passage, God mentions the everlasting nature of this covenant. Arabs, you should be circumcised in your hearts through your repentance and FAITH in God Jesus. You should cut off your past life and sins (turn from sins) and make a step in repentance toward God Jesus to live with Him and follow His way.
There are some today who say that this covenant was conditional, that it was based on Israel’s faithfulness to God. The Bible teaches otherwise.
In Psalm 89:30-37, we read: “If his sons forsake My law, and do not walk in My judgments, if they violate My statues, and do not keep My commandments, then I will visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. But I will not break off My loving kindness from him, nor deal falsely in My faithfulness. My covenant I will not violate, nor will I alter the utterance of My lips. Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David. His descendants shall endure forever like the moon, and the witness in the sky is faithful.”
Jeremiah 31:35-36 declares: “This is what the Lord says, ‘He who appoints the sun to shine by day, Who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar — the Lord Almighty is His Name; Only if these ordinances vanish from My sight,’ declares the Lord, ‘will the descendants of Israel ever cease to be a nation before Me.'”
Brothers, we all are sinners BUT covenant of God was aimed to SAVE us and NOT to kill us. We are sinning but He is CALLING us back to Him. Way to Him is REPENTANCE of sins and FAITH in God Jesus. God is FAITHFUL to you if you worship other gods in mosques and temples…Repent because HIS LOVE was always for you!
We agree that God promised to judge His people if they disobeyed Him. His nature or ESSENCE is Justice. Deuteronomy 30 shows that before they even entered the Promised Land, He knew they would violate His statutes and be evicted in a future day. Yet it also declares that He would bring them back into the land He had given their forefathers. So, Arabs God says that we ALLL violated His laws but HE is going to BRING you back to Him! The Land He is going to give you is the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Land was given to Abraham and his descendants as part of God’s redemptive blessing to the world
In Genesis 12:1-3, we read, “The Lord has said to Abram, ‘Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you and whoever curses you I will curse; and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
Israel was chosen for three purposes: to worship God in this land and show the world the blessing of serving the one true God of the Universe; to receive, record and transmit the Word of God (through them we have our Bible); and finally, to be the human channel for the Messiah-Jesus- from whom we have our salvation.
God promised to bless Ishmael and to make him a great nation: “And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation” (Genesis 17:20).
Israel‘s sin and subsequent exile from the Land did not change their divine right to this Land given to them by the Lord in covenant
Many people have said that God’s promise to give Israel this land was based upon Israel‘s faithfulness to God’s laws, and that when they were disobedient and sent into captivity, this nullified God’s promise. The Bible teaches otherwise. In Leviticus 26:40-45, we read that God would punish Israel for its disobedience and send them into captivity. But, according to verses 44-45, God will bring them back:
“Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, nor will I so abhor them as to destroy them, breaking My covenant with them; for I am the Lord their God. But I will remember for them the covenant with their ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God. I am the Lord.”
In Deuteronomy 30:3-5, God promises: “Then the Lord your God will restore you from captivity, and have compassion on you, and will gather you again from all the peoples where the Lord your God has scattered you. If your outcasts are at the ends of the earth, from there the Lord your God will gather you, and from there He will bring you back. And the Lord; your God will bring you into the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it; and He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers.”
Brothers Arabs, you will prosper BECAUSE God is going to RESTORE you and your lives to LIVE as holy people of God! Even when you are praying in mosques to other god HE is FAITHFUL to you! He is NOT going to BREAK His covenant with your father Ibrahim, BUT He is GOING to TAKE you back to Him. Do NOT fight with God. But REPENT, BELIEVE in God Jesus and commit your life to Him!
Amos 9:14-15 thunders forth these remarkable words: “‘Also I will restore the captivity of My people Israel, and they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will also plant vineyards and drink their wine, and make gardens and eat their fruit. I will also plant them on their land, and they will not again be rooted out from their land which I have given them,’ says the Lord your God.”
Arabs BE Restored by God as ruined cities to LIVE eternally with IMMORTAL God Jesus!
Twenty-five hundred years ago, the prophet Ezekiel spoke of the restoration of Israel to its land in the last days. Ezekiel spoke of dry bones coming to life. Never before in history has a nation been destroyed and scattered all over the world, and then been brought back to life. It is a miracle and a fulfillment of Bible prophecy. We read in Ezekiel 37:11-12:
“Then He said to me, ‘Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel; behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up, and our hope has perished. We are completely cut off.’ Therefore prophesy, and say to them, ‘thus says the Lord God, Behold, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you into the land of ISRAEL.'”
Arabs, you are people of God- Israel. BE ISRAEL who are separated for ETERNAL LIFE with God. Separated from hell and DEATH. Separated to LIVE and NOT to DIE! God of our father Ibrahim is CALLING you to Him. Repent and believe in His Son Jesus and you- who are dried up BONES of dead people – will BE resurrected to the NEW LIFE with God though your repentance and FAITH!
“They (God’s covenant people) will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated: they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. The stranger will shepherd your flock; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards” (Isaiah 61:4,5). “If you really change your ways and your actions and deal with each other justly, if you do not oppress the alien, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place and if you do not follow other gods to your own harm, then I will let you live in this place, in the land I gave to your forefathers for ever and ever” (Jeremiah 7:5-7).
So, brothers God said:
1. change your ways in repentance and confessing your sins to God
2. don’t kill anymore
3. do justice and live holy life following HOLY God Jesus
4. and You will inherit and enter the Kingdom of God- the LAND promised to our father Ibrahim.
YES Israel should treat Arabs with respect. BUT we know with you that all who are killing people will be judged by God. Israeli soldiers who made crimes will be judged! BUT you Muslim suicide bombers will be also judged for your murders. As we know HOLY god does NOT allow criminals and murderers to enter the kingdom of God. So, repent and LIVE godly life! Killed Jews? – DO NOT KILL any more. It is repentance God is expecting from you.
WE ALL have the responsibility to live at peace, abiding by the FAITH in God the God.
This is what Moses taught: “The community (of Israel) is to have the same rules for you and for the alien living among you; this is a lasting ordinance for the generations to come. You and the alien shall be the same before the Lord; the same laws and regulations will apply to you and to the alien living among you“(Numbers 15:15,16).
The return of the Jewish people at the end of days will be initiated by God, and their return will signal the restoration of a barren and broken land- our hearts! Arabs ALLOW God to restore your barren and broken hearts!
The prophet Isaiah spoke of God’s plan to bring His people back to Israel, saying: “He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel, He will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth” (Isaiah 11:12).
Arabs, God is GATHERING you for salvation through FAITH in Jesus. Listen to His call and DO NOT be like Jews who reject God BUT we Israel to LIVE with God!
This description matches the Ezekiel’s prophecy of the “barren mountains of Israel” in Ezekiel 36:1-7. However, Ezekiel goes on to say, “But you, O mountains of Israel, will produce branches and fruit for My people Israel, for they will soon come home. I am concerned for you and will look on you with favor; you will be plowed and sown, and I will multiply the number of people upon you, even the whole house of Israel. The towns will be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. I will increase the number of men and animals upon you, and they will be fruitful and become numerous. I will settle people on you as in the past and will make you prosper more than before. Then, you will know that I am the Lord. I will cause people, My people Israel, to walk upon you. They will possess you, and you will be their inheritance; you will never again deprive them of their children” (Ezekiel 36: 8-12).
Arabs, God will make you PROSPER and your ruins of life will be INHABITED by God Himself because He will DWELL in your hearts and LIVES already in Mecca and Saudi Arabia…in Arab countries and later in the Kingdom of Heaven which is in the other world to come.
What Does This Mean To Us?
The day of Israel’s full restoration is near. Messiah Jesus will make it possible and we shall all live in peace. Until He comes, we, who believe the Bible to be God’s Word and that every promise of God will come to pass, must stand and save Arab nation from death in hell. It is a Divine right. We cannot do otherwise and have clear consciences. We cannot say on the one hand that we believe there is a God Who has revealed His perfect will and LOVE in His Holy Scriptures, and on the other hand, kill Arab people! We should SAVE Arab people and our families in ANY country of the WORLD where God will PLACE us!
Again the Psalmist exhorts us: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may they prosper who love you. May peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces. For the sake of my brothers and my friends, I will now say, ‘May peace be within you.’ For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your good” (Psalm 122; 6-9).
I will say it so:
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may Arabs and Jews prosper! May peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces. For the sake of my Arab and Jewish nation…..for the sake of Israel I wish you peace from the SOURCE of PEACE- God Jesus. Amen.
Islamic Prophecies: Establishment of Israel
And after him We said to the Children of Israel, ‘Dwell Ye in the promised land; and when the time of the promise of the Latter Days come, We shall bring you together out of various people.” (17:105)
Creation of Israel and gathering of Sephardic, Ashkenazi and the Jews of many other different races in Israel proves the authenticity of this prophecy in Bible and even Quran confirms it.
Again, the verse in context:
And certainly We gave Musa nine clear signs; so ask the children of Israel. When he came to them, Firon said to him: Most surely I deem you, O Musa, to be a man deprived of reason. He said: Truly you know that none but the Lord of the heavens and the earth has sent down these as clear proof and most surely I believe you, O Firon, to be given over to perdition. So he desired to destroy them out of the earth, but We drowned him and those with him all together; And We said to the Israelites after him: Dwell in the land: and when the promise of the next life shall come to pass, we will bring you both together in judgment. And with truth have We revealed it, and with truth did it come; and We have not sent you but as the giver of good news and as a warner.
Whether “the world” likes it or not, the Bible tells us that God gave Abraham and his descendents all the land of Israel, spanning to the Euphrates River (which includes Jordan and Syria):
Genesis 15: 18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: (the territory of) 19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, 20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, 21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
Genesis 35:10-12 God said to him, “Your name is Jacob, but you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel.” So he named him Israel. And God said to him, “I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will come from your body. The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you, and I will give this land to your descendants after you.”
Deuteronomy 34: 4 “This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, ‘I will give it to your offspring'”
2 Chronicles 6:5-6 ‘Since the day that I brought My people from the land of Egypt, I did not choose a city out of all the tribes of Israel in which to build a house that My name might be there, nor did I choose any man for a leader over My people Israel; but I have chosen Jerusalem that My name might be there, and I have chosen David to be over My people Israel.’
Numbers 34: 1 ADONAI told Moshe 2 to give this order to the people of Isra’el: “When you enter the land of Kena’an, it will become your land to pass on as an inheritance, the land of Kena’an as defined by these borders. 3 “Your southern portion will extend from the Tzin Desert close to the border of Edom. The eastern terminus of your southern border is at the end of the Dead Sea. 4 From there your border turns, goes south of the ‘Akrabbim Ascent and passes on to Tzin. From there it goes south of Kadesh-Barnea, on to Hatzar-Adar, and on to ‘Atzmon. 5 Then the border turns and goes from ‘Atzmon to the Vadi of Egypt and along it to the Sea. 6 “Your western border will be the Great Sea. 7 “Your northern border will be as follows: from the Great Sea mark a line to Mount Hor, 8 and from Mount Hor mark a line to the entrance of Hamat. The border goes out to Tz’dad. 9 Then the border goes to Zifron and finally to Hatzar-‘Einan; this is your northern border. 10 “For the eastern border mark your line from Hatzar-‘Enan to Sh’fam. 11 Then the border goes down from Sh’fam to Rivlah, on the east side of ‘Ayin, then down until it hits the slope east of Lake Kinneret. 12 From there it goes down the Yarden River till it flows into the Dead Sea. These will be the borders of your land.” 13 Moshe gave this order to the people of Isra’el: “This is the land in which you will receive inheritances by lot, which ADONAI has ordered to give to the nine tribes and the half-tribe. 14 The tribe of the descendants of Re’uven have already received their land for inheritance according to their clans, and so have the descendants of Gad and the half-tribe of M’nasheh. 15 These two-and-a-half tribes have received their inheritance on this side of the Yarden, across from Yericho and eastward, toward the sunrise.”
It is merely a retelling of Musa (Moses), Firon (Pharaoh) and the Israelites story (Islamic version), as previously related in the Bible.
But what will happen soon with Israel? War between Israel and Muslim countries….and may be Russia.
We know that what God said about Israel:
On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. On that day, I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem” (Zechariah 12:1-2,9).
