Why does Islam (the Muslims) think they are entitled to the land of Israel?

Israel vs. Islam

Quick answer: They think it belongs to them as their inheritance through Ishmael.

Long answer: It belongs to the real heir, Isaac.  The Bible records important dreams, including God’s promises. Abram, later named Abraham by God, got into a royal mess because he took a promise in a dream and tried to make it come true on his own. God promised Abram, then childless, that he would be the father of thousands.  The temporary and consequently disastrous solution was to have a child through his house maid.  That first son was Ishmael known today as those nations constituting the political religion of Islam.  A few years later the 2nd and promised son Isaac, is born – the real heir.

In virtually every society except the USA blessings and rewards go to the eldest son, not the younger.  You see the problem.  Modern day Islam thinks it is entitled to the entire inheritance from Abraham and willing to strap bombs on their children to force the issue.  Islam is avenging itself because of something that happened 3,500 years ago, and the likelihood these people will change their minds is Zero.

The land of Canaan (now Israel, formerly Palestine) goes to Isaac and his descendants, hence the battle over a tiny piece of land no bigger than New Jersey.  And Europe who tried to pretend for decades that it was so magnanimous and egalitarian is now on High Alert. Iran, even though it is originally Persian, is also controlled by Islamic leaders and part of the enemies of Israel and the West.

God’s Plan for Sheep & Goat Nations

All nations, just as all individuals, have a clear cut call from God. (Jeremiah 29:11 for individuals). The Bible refers to nations as “ethnos” rather than  geographical divisions.

Acts 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations {ethnos} of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.

It’s not likely you’ll ever hear a sermon on this. Although you might learn about God’s divine intolerance for world government. That has been tried and failed, badly. About 5,500 B.C.E. at the Tower of Babel all human beings spoke the same language; after they tried to replace the government of God with their own under the direction of a wicked dictator Nimrod, God scrambled all the languages and communication became impossible. Today the unstable nature of the European Union should give us pause; maybe this is not God’s perfect will for Europe. God prefers Unity over Union.

However, God does have a clearly defined political jurisdiction in mind for all nations and a specific contribution to the whole of mankind for each individual nation. The United States of America was formed officially 236 years ago but the call itself is eternal. And that destiny for this nation is clearly given in the Declaration of Independence

All men are created equal.

America’s global contribution concerns the sanctity of the individual.  That is what we Americans bring to them world table; it is the reason people flock here from across the globe.  It is also the same reason we can fail as a nation. If individualism gets out of hand as it has in the past four decades is leads to an identity crisis which we now seek to correct.

There are 191 nations today; each one has a call.  It is not my job to know what the call is for each one of them but I believe I know the call of these three.

  • England demonstrates a respect for history, especially national history, and because of that respect England also is able to adjust to changes in the world and to culture. But like individualism in the USA it is also possible for that ability to become a trap and send the county into free fall.
  • China demonstrates respect for and love of national identity, but in the 16th century China pulled away from the world to protect herself from change and world interaction. China became fearful.  When you embrace fear you make yourself irrelevant.  Fear is rightly called “frozen.” China wanted to preserve its identity so carefully that it withdrew into itself and the Chinese people have suffered great loss from this over the subsequent years.
  • Estonia showed the world how to rid itself of a tyrannical dictatorship of the Soviet Union through spiritual warfare, in her case, the power of music. To my knowledge Estonia has not lost that power or its ability to teach the rest of the world.

Controversial Palestine may be a nation in God’s eyes but because it claims to own Israel it cannot be identified as one. God set aside Israel as His own nation with its own specific territory, and a land mass considerably larger than the one Israel now occupies. Because God disciplined His people for a time, other nations assumed they could take over.  They do that at their peril. God has promised once Israel is back in her land He will defend it at all costs.

Goat nations are those that disobey basic moral law and rebel against God. They do not need to stay that way. Like individuals, they can repent and reform. Today Syria is a good example of a nation badly astray. Also, North Korea is a goat nation which is coming down in our lifetime, thankfully.

I will let my readers search out their national Godly ethnos. If you find that out, let me know.

What has God Called Your Nation to Be

All nations, like all individuals, have a clear cut call from God. (Jeremiah 29:11 for individuals). The Bible refers to nations as “ethnos” rather than  geographical divisions.

Acts 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations {ethnos} of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.

It’s not likely you’ll ever hear a sermon on this although you might learn about God’s divine intolerance for world government. That has been tried and failed, badly. About 5,500 B.C.E. at the Tower of Babel all human beings spoke the same language.  After they tried to replace the government of God with their own under the direction of a wicked dictator Nimrod, God scrambled all the languages and communication became impossible.

Today the unstable nature of the European Union should give us pause, that maybe this is not God’s perfect will for Europe. And the embarrassing failure of the United Nations is an example of why global government is a foolish goal. Unity is internal; union is external and God wants the former.

God prefers Unity with Him over Union in the natural. He classifies nations as either sheep or goat. He does have a clearly defined political jurisdiction in mind for all nations and a specific contribution to the whole of mankind for each individual nation.

The United States of America was formed officially 236 years ago but the call itself is eternal. And that destiny is clearly given in the Declaration of Independence

All men are created equal.

Americans bring to the world table the sanctity of the individual; it is the reason people flock here from across the globe.  It is also the same reason we can fail as a nation, if individualism gets out of hand as it has in the past four decades. That individualism has now come to a national mess, so out of control that thousands have not a clue who they actually are. Every blessing and call can be bastardized to an extreme and become a curse.

When President Donald Trump says he wants “to make America great again” he means to restore the primacy of the individual and God’s call to America as a model for individual liberty. Does President Trump know this? Probably not. He appears not to be a person who theorizes; he leaves that to philosophers. His word to the past managers of America is, “You’re fired.”

There are 191 nations today; each one has a call.  It is not my job to know what the call is for each one of them but I believe I know the call of these three.

  • England demonstrates a respect for history, especially to learn from history, and because of that respect England also is able to adjust to changes in the world and to culture. But like individualism in the USA it is also possible for that ability to change to be a trap and send the county into free fall.
  • China long continuous identity shows respect for and love of nationhood. Her glory days were the 15th century but in the 16th century China pulled away from the world to protect herself from change and world interaction. China became fearful.  When you embrace fear you make yourself weak and ineffective.  Fear is rightly called “frozen.” China wanted to preserve its identity so carefully that it withdrew into itself and the Chinese people have suffered great loss from this over the subsequent years. God looks at the long haul.
  • Estonia showed the world how to rid itself of a tyrannical dictatorship of the Soviet Union through spiritual warfare, in her case, the power of music to win freedom. To my knowledge Estonia has neither lost nor hindered that power or her ability to teach the rest of the world.

If you are paying attention you’ll notice I’ve eliminated Palestine which might be a nation in God’s eyes but because it claims Israel’s territory it cannot be identified as one. God set aside Israel as His own nation with its own specific estate, a land mass considerably larger than the one it now occupies. The deed for this land appears in Ezekiel 47. Because God disciplined His people for a time, other nations assumed they could take over.  They try that at their peril. God has promised once Israel is back in her land to defend her at all costs.

Goat nations are those that disobey basic moral laws and rebel against God. They need not stay that way. Like individuals, they can repent and reform. Today Syria is a good example of a nation badly astray. Also, North Korea is a goat nation which is coming down in our lifetime, thankfully.

I will let the other internationals reading this blog to search out their national Godly mission. If you find that out, let me know.

Pres. Obama is wrong – Don’t say ISIL, say ISIS

President Obama insists on calling the terrorists ISIL instead of ISIS because of his contempt for Israel, our treaty partner.

Why? We are at (cough, cough) war with ISIS and other Islamic States. ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
But, ISIL means the ISIS area as well as the Levant region which includes Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Cyprus and part of southern Turkey.

We are not at war with Israel – ever. It is the fatherland of the Christian faith and the only democracy in the Middle East. And we should be cautious about Turkey which is our sometime-friend.

Wikipedia has more on this subject. Lastly, ISIS is an Egyptian goddess, and we certainly don’t have any love of false religion, even the kind that doesn’t kill off its enemies.
