Yet, this is a bittersweet love -- for God it is a love that breaks the heart.
You can see that broken heart of God in Luke who adds these words to the account of Yeshua' entrance into
The Mystery of Yeshua' Journey to
Ever since Peter had identified Yeshua (Jesus) as "The Messiah, the Son of the Living God" Matthew , Yeshua (Jesus) had taught his disciples that his destiny included two seemingly contradictory things: (1) He had to go to
This created a terrible conflict -- especially for Peter. When Yeshua told his disciples that he would have to suffer and even be killed in

Yeshua (Jesus) gives Peter the answer, still in the privacy of this personal conversation. Listen carefully. Here is the key to the mystery of the Messiah --- "Get behind me Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; for you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things" Matthew 16: 23.
And there you have it! There is a great divide between the way most of

All of this plays out on the stage of
“As the navel is set in the human body, so is the land of Israel the navel of the world --- Situated in the centre of the world, and Jerusalem in the centre of the land of Israel, and the sanctuary in the centre of Jerusalem, and the holy place in the centre of the sanctuary, and the Ark in the centre of the holy place, and the foundation stone before the holy place, because from it the world was founded (The exposed rock over which the Dome of the Rock is built is called the “foundation stone”).” (Midrash Tanchuma Quedoshim)

The re-birth of national life among the Jews mean the dawn is in the sky for them after a long night of war, suffering, hunger, disease, and death extending over the many centuries of their dispersion. God has announced that He is going to intervene in the affairs of men someday. We can get some idea of when this will be by examining what the Bible says about the people of

Isaiah wrote the Word of the Lord --- “I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My council shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.” Isaiah 46: 9 – 10

Never before has a nation been destroyed, its people dispersed to the ends of the earth, and then nearly 2000 years later, re-gathered to their homeland and re-established as a nation.

Another miracle worth mentioning took place at Safed where a small unit of Israeli defenders were holding off a 1000 Arabs. When everything seemed hopeless a “sudden” tropical storm broke loose. The defenders in desperation took their remaining gasoline and poured it over empty drums, set them alight and rolled them down the hill. Together with the tropical storm the rumbling of the hollow barrels striking rocks created such an illusion that the bewildered attackers though some sort of secret weapon was released and so they fled.
And think about this… Mark Twain who visited
"We traversed some miles of desolate country whose soil is rich enough but is given wholly to weeds - a silent, mournful, expanse… a desolation is here that not even imagination can grace with the pomp of life and action. We reached Tabor safely... We never saw a human being on the whole route. We pressed on toward the goal of our crusade, renowned
From this text we can sense a sadness that just as the Jewish people was mourning the loss of their land so too the land was mourning their absence. Almost as though the land was cursed --- until the return of the Jews!
“And the waste land shall be tilled, instead of being a ruin before all passing by. And they shall say this land that was wasted has become like the Garden of Eden. And the wasted, deserted and ruined cities now are fortified and inhabited. And the nations that are left all around you shall know that I Jehovah build the ruined places and plant that which was wasted. I Jehovah have spoken it, and I will do it.” Ezekiel 36: 34 - 36

“The first tree that Abraham put in the soil of Beer Sheva was a tamarisk,” said Dr Joseph Weitz an outstanding authority on reforestation. “Following Abraham’s lead, we put out 2,000,000 in the same area. Abraham was right! The tamarisk is one of the few trees that we have found that thrives in the South where yearly rainfall is less than 6 inches.”

The good news, however, is that the dream is God’s and not mans. It was the Almighty who envisioned the plan, not Abraham. Almost unnoticed at first, in the latter half of the 19th century, the Jews began to trickle back and join a small minority that was already in their ancient homeland. Then on

What is the Lord’s perspective of Dividing the Land?
He is angry at the nations!
Let’s consider Bible Scripture in a different way
“And Solomon awoke, and behold, it was a dream. Then he came to
And this woman's son died in the night, because she lay on him. And she arose at and took my son from beside me, while your servant slept, and laid him at her breast, and laid her dead son at my breast. When I rose in the morning to nurse my child, behold, he was dead. But when I looked at him closely in the morning, behold, he was not the child that I had borne."
But the other woman said, "No, the living child is mine, and the dead child is yours." The first said, "No, the dead child is yours, and the living child is mine." Thus they spoke before the king. Then the king said, "The one says, 'This is my son that is alive, and your son is dead'; and the other says, 'No; but your son is dead, and my son is the living one.'"
And the king said, "Bring me a sword." So a sword was brought before the king. And the king said, "Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one and half to the other." Then the woman whose son was alive said to the king, because her heart yearned for her son, "Oh, my lord, give her the living child, and by no means put him to death." But the other said, "He shall be neither mine nor yours; divide him."
Then the king answered and said, "Give the living child to the first woman, and by no means put him to death; she is his mother." And all
Let’s look at this story from the Word of God and compare it to
Let’s assume for a moment; that King Solomon in this story represents the “King of all Creation,” The Lord of the universe. The first woman in the story represents the Jewish people. Her baby represents –
Notice that the second woman had her baby 3 days after the first woman. The Jewish state was first created about 3000 years ago. The Palestinians and Arab nations are trying, three thousand years later, to create an Arab Palestinian state where none has previously existed.
The Bible tells us in both Old and New Testament that one day is like a thousand years to God. Psalm 90:4 “A thousand years to you are like one day; they are like yesterday, already gone, like a short hour in the night.” GNB Another reference 2 Peter 3: 8 “But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” ESV
So, 3 days, or 3000 years ago, Abraham’s promised seed gave birth to the nation of
Like the first mother, haven’t the Jewish people expressed a willingness to give up half the land in a division plan just to keep their precious baby (
