The SHEPHERD | Danilo Q. Junco
This is the end-time scenario and the focus of international upheaval is in the land of Israel where this parcel of territory is and will be experiencing turmoil brought about by its surrounding nations, especially to those anti-Semitic whose utmost desire is to erase the Jewish remnants from the globe as stated in the Bible.
It is no coincidence that Israel is embroiled with skirmishes of war against Hamas, a group which is tagged by media as militant, wanting the Jewish people to be annihilated.
This kind of problem posing to the Jews is one of the ways by God to wake them up and come to the realization that they cannot be victorious over their enemies by their own strength or capability but only with the help of “Elohim” or “Yahweh” who is the creator and owner of the universe, along with the earth and all the things thereof, including mankind.
The Jews have to learn the lessons in ancient times or in the history on the rise and fall of the nations or empires through God’s judgments as recorded in Torah or the five books of Moses which is also called Pentateuch from Genesis to Deuteronomy and the other 34 books written by the prophets, kings, priests and other people which is called the Old Testament comprising 39 books in all and the 27 books in the New Testament together the 66 books are called the Bible or the Holy Scriptures.
Though God judged also Israel or the Hebrews in the past because of their sins of idolatry, witchcraft, divination, sorcery, among others, yet God had not wiped them out from the face of the earth but preserved the remnants which He promised to bring them back to the land of Israel, despite that the area was already divided or partitioned and it happened on May 14, 1948 after 2000 years of dispersion to other nations of the world because they rejected Jesus Christ as their Messiah or King and God.
Even now the majority of the Jews don’t recognize Jesus Christ as the Son of God, God and Messiah but God is still patient with them until their eyes are open and recognize Him as their King, Messiah and God (Zechariah 12:10).
The firefight between Hamas and Israel at the moment has brought both sides of deaths of people, destruction to infrastructures and wounded innocent civilians who were caught in a crossfire and the fighter themselves but all of the outcome would redound to God’s glory as they would call for help or intervention from Him as their God or the God of the Bible.
The emergence of Antichrist and the false prophet is much worse than what they are now experiencing but they have no worry as they will call on the name of the Lord, then Jesus Christ will intervene and defeat all Israel’s enemies (Revelation 19:12-21).
To date, the Jewish people have to experience wars from the Gentile nations around them and in faraway regions but God has to protect them and He makes Israel as a stone or rock that no nation or people can remove them because if they do it they will be hurt (Zechariah12:1-9).
No matter what other nations want to demolish or wipe out Israel they cannot and will not triumph because God protects them as He has covenanted with Abraham, their patriarch.
The Lord Jesus is now offering salvation to those who repent of their sins and receive Him as Lord and Savior (Revelation 12:11; John 1:12), prior to His coming back on earth.
