God "Hooks" Israelis, Palestinians

Sounds like a New York Daily News headline. Oh, and, BTW, though the notion of hooks used by God is lightly referenced from Ezekiel 38 (Gog Magog War, also see Revelation 20), the Ezekiel reference has little to do with the Gaza war, because the Gog-Magog War (which is what this event is popularly called) takes place under the circumstance of unwalled villages in the vicinity of Jerusalem.

Folks, today, there are simply NO UNWALLED villages in the vicinity of Jerusalem! There are so many walls in and around Jeruslaem that it is nearly impossible for Palestinians to get from one end of East Jerusalem in the West Bank territory to the other in under half a day, because of all the checkpoints. So, what we aer witnessing in Gaza is not the beginning of the Gog-Magog War, Armegeddon, or anything other than just the usual insanity there...insane, because the Israelis and Hamas keep doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results!

But the other night my husband, staunchly pro-Israel, and me, staunchly pro-Palestinian Christian (meaning, for the dullards out there on your Megaphones, I am not pro-Hamas! Tell that to your local GIYUS goons), had an argument. May the Holy Spirit one day open his eyes as to the nature of what kind of Jews run Israel (will "Anonymous" sue me over this?), and who the Palestinians are really descended from, despite their almost mass forced conversion to Islam before the Crusades. But until then, my husband sees the "Arabs" there (don't Arabs come from Arabia?) as terrorists in general. Same as most American Christians, even those who do not call themselves "Christian" Zionist. May the Holy Spirit take the strong delusion from him and make him love the truth. That is, the Truth, as in "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life". But, until then, he will hate Islam and everyone who believes in it, and of course, those who don't but are associated with it. May the Holy Spirit one day shine the light of the truth of the nature of Talmudic Judaism, anti-Christ, on him. But, until then...

So, we argued, and, without going into all the gory details, we reached the conclusion that this Gaza war was God's Will. That God had put hooks into the Israelis and Palestinians to go to war. We don't need to approve or disapprove or like it or not like it. God's got His reasons. May the faith in Jesus Christ prevail in the Palestinian and Messianic Jewish Communities!
