From Pastor Don Finto, Caleb Company Newsletter, July 29, 2014

Stay Informed!

Zechariah 14 clearly states that a time is coming in history when every nation of the world will turn against Jerusalem. We have thankfully not yet reached that place, though a discerning mind can see how this may shape up in the future. Having just returned from Israel I saw even more the facts in the present conflict between the forces of Hamas (by the way the Hebrew word for "violence" is "hamas") and Israel and saw how the news media reports all this. It's clear how they and the nations will ultimately turn against this host people who have brought us redemption through Yeshua.

Israel is the most compassionate nation in history in the way they are fighting against Hamas. They know where all the rocket launchers are located. They possess some of the most precise technology and intelligence sources on the planet. They could have wiped out every rocket launcher in a matter of hours, but they know this would also take the lives of tens of thousands of innocent Gazans. The main reason being Hamas hides their rocket launchers and weapons among schools, hospitals, and private homes, knowing Israel is more reticent to destroy them because they will inevitably take the lives of innocent civilians.

As Benjamin Netanyahu told the world some time ago, if Hamas will lay down their arms, there will be peace, but if Israel lays down their arms, there will be no Israel. Does this mean that we hate the Gazans or even the Hamas terrorists? No, there are many innocent people in Gaza. There are Gazan believers who need our help, and we must keep praying the Lord will reveal Himself both to Israel and to the Palestinians. Pray that even these Hamas terrorists will have visions of Messiah Yeshua/Jesus and will accept Him as their Redeemer. Many terrorists have been redeemed through the years, including the well-known "terrorist" named Saul, who was out to kill all the believers, but had an encounter on the road to Damascus that changed his life and the lives of thousands of others who came to know Jesus as Lord.
