The Beginning of the Discord in the Middle East

Understanding It - NOT Justifying It


The purpose of this document is to assist the Faithful in understanding some of the critical junctures in the history of man.  Because mankind has chosen to disobey God at these critical times, we have brought humanity to the brink of spiritual destruction.


We are highlighting the historical junctures where man made the wrong choices, bringing misery upon himself.  This in no way implies the endorsement or justification (and much less the judging) of  the instruments of misery which God allowed upon mankind with the intent of helping him back to the right path (1) .

For example - we are do not justify either Nazism or Communism - philosophies which have caused, so far, over 100 million deaths and untold misery.  Note, however, that these evil philosophies were the instruments of misery which befell mankind as the result of the continual disobedience of the Roman Catholic Church Administration (2) .   This Divine Message, a chastisement for the Church's disobedience, started being delivered with the French Revolution. (3)


We received a letter from one of our close associate-cooperators which read as follows:
Beginning of the Letter

One of the founders of a leading Christian publication (who is now retired), participated in an on-line discussion of Israel, and forwarded some of it to me.  I have his permission to share this correspondence with you.
A militantly pro-Israel correspondent scolded him: "Do you think the world would be better off if the stinking worshippers of Allah succeed in pushing them (Israel) into the sea?"
Mr. X said this in reply:
"No -- I think the world would be better off if the Jews had waited for God's restoration to the land through appropriate turning and repentance after the eviction foretold by Ezekiel instead of "immanentizing the eschaton" and "taking the kingdom of heaven by storm" by grabbing what they think is their due without waiting to receive it -- following their own agenda instead of God's -- as they have a lengthy record of doing. 
But "what if" is a useless way of  approaching history.  They did what they did, and the world suffers the fallout until God calls an end to the whole world-system they are trying to climb to the top of.  The beginnings of modern Israel -- its spiritual foundations -- are wrong, and no good result can ultimately come from an enterprise based on rebellion against God.  Modern Jews (or, at least modern zionist Jews) have turned their backs on God and embraced the World-system, determined to be top dog in the World-system's dominance game (at least in their neighborhood) depending solely on the "arm of flesh" for protection, rather than on God. 

Well, there are consequences that go with that -- all of them amply warned against by God Himself, many of which warnings, ironically, were directed specifically at Jews and Jewish rulers.  One warning that Christ directed at his followers pretty much sums the matter up for anyone who plays the World's game(s) : "In the world, you have tribulation."

Zionist Jews are in the World and of the World -- by choice -- and boy, do they have tribulation!  By Christ's measure of the World/tribulation linkage, you'd have to say that by embracing the World, modern Israel's founders have pretty much purchased their own inheritance, and Israel's contemporary custodians continue to pay the asking price for it.

Which would be one thing, if the zionists were just going to do a pratfall on their own banana-peel while the rest of the world watched.  But the cascade of consequences from their
a) rebelling against God, while b) aggressively appropriating His name and claiming His endorsement, are going to rain down on all of us, not just on them.

Frankly, I think that people sense, however dimly, that there is a connection between this fundamental Jewish (mis)behavior and the grief that Israel is giving the rest of the world. 
Of course "the people's" awareness is inchoate; of course they misunderstand the nature of the connection, and of course they project their own merely human anti-jewish sentiment onto the situation, with the result that confusion is added to confusion in the public mind.  The unbelieving world will never understand, and the Jews themselves will never acknowledge, their true role in the world's affairs until God Himself forces them to bend the knee."
This looks like a severe, but reasonable, critique of modern-day Israel and political, aggressive Zionism.  If I am falling for anti-Semitism here, let me know - I have no wish to fall into that error.

End of the Letter

It was obvious that our associate-cooperators wanted a "reality Check" from us to avoid falling into anti-Semitism, which, by spiritual definition, is straight from hell.


Our response to his question and concern turned out to be a review of:

a.  How far back in history did we go wrong; and
b. What are the consequences we are still enduring.

Our Response

1. Mr. X has expressed the truth about the situation as well as anyone could possibly do.  As we have said many times: constructive and illuminated criticism - which is what Mr. X has done, is never "anti-" anything..  Instead, it is "pro truth" and "pro remedy".

2. However.... we will take what he has said to some levels that may shake up many on a worldwide scale

He states that: The beginnings of modern Israel -- its spiritual foundations -- are wrong, and no good result can ultimately come from an enterprise based on rebellion against God.

We add: They were wrong from the very beginning.  We will show it to you using Mr. X's own concept of man not wanting to wait for God's deliverance but instead taking things into his grubby hands and making a mess of everything.

 (Mr. X wrote: "No -- I think the world would be better off if the Jews had waited for God's restoration to the land through appropriate turning and repentance after the eviction foretold by Ezekiel instead of "immanentizing the eschaton" and "taking the kingdom of heaven by storm" by grabbing what they think is their due without waiting to receive it -- following their own agenda instead of God's -- as they have a lengthy record of doing. )

We read in the Old Testament that:

1. Jacob, participating in the ruse his mother planned, stole God's Blessing, through Isaac, by pretending to be Esau [Genesis 27]

2. Then in Chapter 32 of Genesis we read:

22 And rising early he (Jacob) took his two wives, and his two handmaids, with his eleven sons, and passed over the ford of Jaboc. 23 And when all things were brought over that belonged to him, 24 He remained alone: and behold a man wrestled with him till morning. 25 And when he saw that he could not overcome him, he touched the sinew of his thigh, and forthwith it shrank.

[Commentary: 24 "A man"... This was an angel in human shape, as we learn from Osee (12. 4). He is called God, (ver. 28 and 30) because he represented the person of the Son of God.]

26 And he said to him: Let me go, for it is break of day. He answered: I will not let thee go except thou bless me. 27 And he said: What is thy name? He answered: Jacob. 28 But he said: Thy name shall not be called Jacob, but Israel: for if thou hast been strong against God, how much more shalt thou prevail against men? 29 Jacob asked him, Tell me by what name art thou called? He answered: Why dost thou ask my name? And he blessed him in the same place.

So now, Jacob (who stole, under his mother's guidance, the Blessing due to Esau) wrestles God Himself and could not be overcome by Him.  Then, he is named Israel.

Now that is chutzpah if we ever saw it! [In American vernacular that would be: "He had the nerve" or "That took the cake"]

So, as you can see "Israel" started on the wrong foot from the very beginning - stealing a Blessing that was not his and then claiming to defeat God in human terms.,  we are not finished yet....

Abraham, the Father of Faith? 

Let us understand this clearly: This Faith of Abraham really came about AFTER God worked a major miracle - the conception and birth of Isaac.  This fulfilled a prophecy that Abraham's wife, Sarai, laughed at in front of God.

What happened before the conception and birth of Isaac?  Exactly the same thing that man is so good at: getting his little grubby finger into the Divine pie and ruining the Divine plan!

What happened before Sarah's pregnancy and the subsequent birth of Isaac?

After God promising Abraham ...

4 .... He (Abraham's servant) shall not be thy heir: but he that shall come out of thy bowels, him shalt thou have for thy heir. 5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said to him: Look up to heaven and number the stars, if thou canst. And he said to him: So shall thy seed be. [Gen 15]

Abraham just could not wait.  Sarai had to "get her finger in that pie" and push Abraham into the arms of her Egyptian slave, Agar.  This was to force Abraham to have an offspring, thus forcing the Hand of God.  [It seems that the "Spirit of Eve" was still around - rebellion against God.]

Therefore, because of that unwanted "finger in the Divine pie", Ishmael is born and just as God promised poor Agar in Genesis 21:

16 And she went her way, and sat over against him a great way off as far as a bow can carry, for she said: I will not see the boy die: and sitting over against, she lifted up her voice and wept. 17 And God heard the voice of the boy: and an angel of God called to Agar from heaven, saying: What art thou doing, Agar? fear not: for God hath heard the voice of the boy, from the place wherein he is. 18 Arise, take up the boy, and hold him by the hand: for I will make him a great nation.

And, pray tell, who is Ishmael and who were his descendants? Both Jewish and Islamic traditions (4) consider Ishmael as the ancestor of the Arab People. (5)

And the rest, brothers and sisters, is history - a history which will come to a thundering end at the Hands of God.
We have proved to Him that (even after He sent His Son so that we "could read His lips," and after He sent Mary with the general message of "Just what part of My Son's instructions  do you not understand?") without a doubt, we are incapable of obeying Him.  Thus, we are incapable of taking charge of Creation as He intended mankind to do.

That is the "end point" that we are approaching - the End of These (evil!) Times.  Then, we may start anew, just as God announced through Jeremiah:

31 Behold the days shall come, saith the Lord, and I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Juda: 32 Not according to the covenant which I made with their fathers, in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt: the covenant which they made void, and I had dominion over them, saith the Lord. 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel, after those days, saith the Lord: I will give my law in their bowels, and I will write it in their heart: and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying: Know the Lord: for all shall know me from the least of them even to the greatest, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. 35 Thus saith the Lord, who giveth the sun for the light of the day, the order of the moon and of the stars, for the light of the night: who stirreth up the sea, and the waves thereof roar, the Lord of hosts is his name. [Jeremiah 31]


To the world, we say:


Exactly what part of what miguel de Portugal is trying to convey (6) to the world in the Name of God can't you understand?

If we make it any clearer it would become transparent!
