God set the stage. But, the players still had a choice as to whether they would fulfill their destiny.
Attempts to generate peaceful coexistence on the part of ancient Israel were met with obstinate refusal to cooperate. Squatters from neighboring lands were committed to hostility and any hope for peaceful resolution was blocked by their premeditated, continuous and unrelenting aggression. Today, it seems nothing’s changed.
Two decades and three administrations have passed since Public Law 104–45—Nov. 8, 1995 was approved by Congress. Every six months, presidents have routinely postponed the U.S. Embassy move via waiver for fear of antagonizing Israel’s enemies—a strategy that failed to achieve the objective.
Without a God’s-eye view of Israel, perceptions can be easily skewed. People of faith must be serious about getting the historical facts right and communicating biblical truth.
Don’t be a pew warmer. Use every opportunity to counter misinformation about Israel.
