“The Age Old Conflict”
by Art Sadlier   
October 4th, 2009

The Jewish people have just celebrated the Feast of Tabernacles. The city of Jerusalem has been filled with the excitement of this 3500 year old festival. There is an undeniable enthusiasm among the Jewish people in recent days. The dream of a return to the glory days of Israel is stirring in their hearts.

Prime Minister Netanyahu has challenged the UN concerning the rights of the nation of Israel. He has told the world that the land of Israel belongs to the people of Israel. This he has done,  inspite of the fact that Israel’s ally and benefactor, America, has become the enemy of Israel, and now rejects this claim of Israel.

When in the past Israel has taken her eyes off the nations around her and fixed her hope on God, she has always prospered. There are dark days ahead for Israel, as the Lord brings Israel through the fire to learn finally this lesson.  Israel is to have one final episode of putting their trust in a false hope.  Jesus said , “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.,” John 5: 43.  Jesus was referring to a false messiah who will one day come and  deceive Israel into believing that he is their messiah, he will be the Antichrist.

For those who understand Bible prophecy it is not hard to see the stage being set for this final act in the drama of the last days.

While God is at work preparing Israel to go through the fires that will bring about the restoration of Israel, the devil is at work also. Satan is carrying forward his relentless program to annihilate Israel.  A news item on October 3, reveals how Hamas is indoctrinating little children to hate Israel. Hamas aired on a children’s T.V. program a call for the “slaughter” of Jews in Israel.

All Jews must be "erased from our land," said Nassur, a stuffed bear who hosts the weekly program, Tomorrow's Pioneers, on Hamas's Al-Aksa television, explained to a child who called in to a September 22 show. "We want to slaughter them, Saraa, so they will be expelled from our land... we'll have to [do it] by slaughter."

3500 years ago, Satan through Pharoah sought to slaughter the Jews even as God was preparing to deliver them. That conflict has continued over the long centuries, and will continue until the “Times of the Gentiles” comes to an end. That day may not be far off.

Before The Lord proceeds to deliver Israel once and for all, the Church will be taken out of the way.
