David's Comment: International Pressure on Israel is Increasing for a Cease-Fire and the Two State Solution
As the war continues with no defeat of Hamas in sight and no firm agreement for the remaining hostages to be released any time soon, these two main goals of the Israeli War Cabinet and the military operation look impossible. The other goal that is still eluding Israel is the removal of the threat posed by Hezbollah in the north, so that the 80,000 plus evacuated residents of northern Israel can return to their homes, work-places, schools, and begin to get their lives back to some form of normality. At this time the only hope of achieving these 3 goals is if the GOD of Israel, for whom nothing is impossible, intervenes in a dramatically and miraculous way. While we pray and wait for GOD to do the impossible, the war is costing more lives, costing a huge amount financially, costing in the other ways that I listed in the comment 3 weeks ago, and doing massive harm to the standing of Israel internationally, like the case at the International Court of Justice where South Africa has accused Israel of committing genocide.
As the calls for Israel to end the war with Hamas grow louder every day, it is obvious that most of the world leaders have no idea of the situation facing the people of Israel, and they do not care or understand that this war is happening now because Israel was prevented from removing Hamas in the previous conflicts. If Israel is forced to end this war prematurely, the horrors of October 7 and the deaths and damage in Gaza, will surely happen again. Hamas has already declared that they will attack Israel again and again, until they achieve their main goal - From the River to the Sea. The head of Hamas, Qatar-based billionaire Khaled Mashaal, has stated that the terror group will never recognise the right of Israel to exist. Hamas clearly does not want a Two State Solution - they want a One State from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, which means there is no place for Israel.
As well as calls for a permanent cease-fire, more and more political leaders are calling for Israel to agree to the creation of a Palestinian state on land that GOD covenanted to Abraham and his descendents forever. An EU official recently said that Israel should be forced to concede their land for a Palestinian state. Such a state would be nothing more that a terrorist state, placing Israel and the Jewish people in even great danger of many more October 7's, as well as legitimising and encouraging terrorism all around the world. The UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron has revealed that London is considering recognizing the State of Palestinian in order to make the Two State process irreversible and the United States is also pushing Israel to agree to a Palestinian State. It is starting to look impossible for Israel to be able to stand against the pressure.
There is only one hope that there will never be a Palestinian State - the GOD of Israel who is a covenant keeper and for who nothing is impossible. I may be wrong, but from my understanding of the Bible, it is not His will that such a state will ever exist on the land that He promised in a blood sealed covenant with Abraham. (Genesis 15:15-18 - Psalm 105:6-11). Any attempt to do so is flying directly into conflict with the Creator of the Universe, who is also a consuming fire when He chooses to be. History declares that if the nations move ahead and try to force Israel to submit to their will rather than the will of GOD, it will cost the people responsible, and their nations or organisations an extremely high price for doing so.
The LORD bless you as you bless Israel by standing in defense of her right to occupy and defend all of the land covenanted to the Jewish people by the GOD of Israel. Please pray that all of the Jewish people will turn back to their GOD and Messiah. Do not be silent, but share this with your fellow Christians, share it with your pastors, and with anyone you have a chance to speak to. Lets also pray for a revelation of the real Messiah for the Muslims, and please remember to pray for Angelic protection over all of the Israeli soldiers and pilots.
Shabbat Shalom ..... David
