ISRAEL E-CARD    Volume 3 Issue 8  April 15, 2009

Topic # 1   Last Day of Passover H0021410

Today, Passover week ends, on the 3,721st anniversary of Joshua and Israel’s crossing of the Jordan River into the Promised Land. In Israel today descendants of those very Israelites gathered at Joshua’s altar set up near Shechem in Samaria. They rejoiced at the promise of Yahweh fulfilled. However, today the area is disputed by Palestinians and the UN claiming it for the “two state solution”. We know how this will end. We have read the Book! Israel will have the entire land of Israel and the nations who attempt to divide the land will be judged severely. (See Joel 3)

The irony of history is that the UN engraved “swords into plowshares” (Isaiah 2:4) at its New York headquarters. But Joel 3:10 says just the opposite: “plowshares into swords”. The UN peace is the prophesied false peace. First will come the judgment of God, then real peace in Jesus.

Topic # 2   A Timely Comment on the Economic Crises

“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” Cicero—55 B.C.

Sound familiar? Another cliché comes to mind. Those who do not learn the mistakes of history are doomed to repeat them. One phrase in the Cicero quote stands out to me: “the arrogance of officialdom”. Every great empire falls the same way, yet we insist on the same mistakes.

The lesson is that God is in control. Man in his pride will always fall before the purpose of God. Pray for His will to be done in our personal lives and especially in our nation. Get ready. Jesus (Yeshua Ben Yahweh) is coming soon!

“Proclaim this among the nations: “Prepare for war!Wake up the mighty men,Let all the men of war draw near, Let them come up.Beat your plowshares into swords And your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.'”Assemble and come, all you nations, And gather together all around. Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O Yahweh.” Joel 3:9-11
