Dividing Israel

“I (the God of the Bible) will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land” (Joel 3:2).

Joel was a prophet who lived around 835 B.C. God told him what to write regarding future events. One of these predictions deals with the battle of God against the nations that have mistreated the Jews, better known as the campaign of Armageddon. The other prediction in this context is the terrible price which God will exact from those who have divided His land. Technically, Israel is God’s land which He gave His people by His sovereign choice. That’s His divine prerogative. 

The world is currently engaged in its diatribes and displays of hateful animosity towards the Christ of the Bible. And since they cannot attack Him personally, they seek to do so against His people – – Jews and Christians alike! Not only have these nations as a whole been instrumental in scattering the Jews, they are now once again in the process of dividing the land of Israel by cunning deceit and force.

Long story short: No one ever in all of human history has ever fought the God of the Bible and won. No one! And there are no exceptions. The last chapter has been written and the land will ultimately belong to the Jewish people. It may not be today, but it will be. Zechariah the prophet says that in the end, one third of the Jewish people will survive eternally (chapter 13:9; etc.).

You say, well what can I do about that? Good question! Let me suggest the following:

1. Realize that although the Jews are by no means perfect, God still chose them (Deuteronomy 7:6). Are you perfect or better than he is?

2. If you are a Christian, remember that Jesus Christ, the One you worship, is of Jewish descent. You can’t love Him and hate His people!

3. Pray for and love the Jewish people. God will bless you for that (Genesis 12:3).

Are you saved?

One thought on “Dividing Israel

  1. Zechariah 12:2-3 (NASB)
    2 “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah.
    3 “It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.

    That Day is getting closer for sure. It is best not to force the hand of God against you.
