As we remember Yom Ha Shoah -The Holocaust Memorial Day, it is easy to imagine brutal Nazi’s in their uniforms with their cold hard stares. But Dietrich’s quote reveals the true reality of what led to this most tragic episode of our blood drenched history. All humanity who knew something of what was unfolding in Europe had a responsibility to speak or act on behalf of those whose freedom and life were being stolen away; responsible to choose to stand on the side of justice and humanity and be ambassadors for the Creator of life.

I had a comment to give but only half would fit into the 1200 character space allowable… By the time it had been cut, sliced and diced down to the acceptable length the ‘debate had been closed.’ So instead the ‘full version’ of my 2 cents worth will find its outlet below. Continue reading →
Joel 3:2: I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land.
Isaiah 5:20: Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight!
Following up on Christine’s articles on the maps of Israel, I found the following article about a billboard that was put up in Ellerslie, Auckland about the same subject.
Israel’s reality of the last 19 years was about to change all within six days.
‘Israel on the eve of the 1967 Six-Day War was a country of more than 2.5 million people, of whom approximately 87 percent were Jews. Its 7,200 square miles … comprised one-tenth of one percent of the Middle East landmass, and less than two percent of the region’s total population’. sixdaywar.org (an indepth site on the 6 day war)
The day after Israel declares her independence, officially becoming the new State of Israel, her neighbours go to war with her. A combined invasion by Egypt, Jordan and Syria, together with expeditionary forces from Iraq, entered Israel – Jordan having declared privately to Jewish emissaries 13 days previously on 2 May that it would abide by a decision not to attack the Jewish State. Hmm…
Psalm 122:6: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you”.
The Bible is clear that all of us who desire to serve Yahweh in Spirit and in truth need to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. I was both saddened and encouraged by the following article from the Zionist Federation of New Zealand. It is a good read and gives counter arguments to all of us that are standing with Israel and her Jewish Messiah.
A month or so back I found myself lost for words in the face of a friend’s confident assertion of Israel’s evil concerning the Palestinians. It wasn’t a new attitude seldom heard. Very much common place and for the most part unquestioned, it is given as fact largely because of incredible media bias, that unfortunately plays a big part in the shaping our individual and collective opinions. I just went blank.
Because of her confidence, I began to wonder whether the accusation levelled at me (on a previous occasion) – of myobvious bias originating not from actual history of world events but from America’s biblebelt of pro-Israel christianity – actually had some merit, as the ‘truth’ presents as very much bipolar on this topic, dependent on the side taken. Because I Continue reading →
