ISRAEL E-CARD Volume 4 Issue 12 June 15, 2010
Topic # 1 7 Days After, Still No US Condemnation
The 7 year old boy hung by the Taliban was accused of spying. Right. Did I mention his grandfather is a tribal elder who supports the Afghan government? But the story gets worse. While the entire world condemns Israel for defending itself from “violent peace activists” (oxymoron alert), silence meets the hanging of a child. Our state department has yet to speak out about it. The only leader outside Afghanistan to speak is the new PM of Britain, David Cameron: I think it says more about the Taliban than any book, than any article, than any speech could ever say. Good for him. But where is the outrage everywhere else? Our government is shifting from pro-Israel to pro-Muslim sentiment. This betrayal brings increasing judgment on our nation.
Israeli PM Netanyahu was profoundly correct when he said: If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.
Topic #2 Oil Rig Trouble?
In the past 7 days, serious events have befallen our country. It may be a stretch, but go with me on this. Look at Psalm 77:16-19. The depths trembled (oil disaster escalates). The clouds poured out water (deadly flash floods in Arkansas and Oklahoma). Your thunder was in the whirlwind (deadly tornadoes). Lightning lit up the world (lightning hit the oil platform, the day of the President’s defensive oval office speech). The earth trembled and shook (earthquakes in California). Also, please see the solution below in Psalm 107:23-28.
Topic #3 Death of a Christian Extremist
Tom Jones died recently. He was a good friend and fellow elder in my home church in Clearwater, FL. Joanne Lee, another church leader said it best: He was extreme in his faith and his faithfulness. May we all follow Tom’s lead.
Those who go down to the sea in ships, Who do business on great waters, They see the works of Yahweh, And His wonders in the deep. For He commands and raises the stormy wind, Which lifts up the waves of the sea. They mount up to the heavens, They go down again to the depths; Their soul melts because of trouble They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, And are at their wits’ end. Then they cry out to Yahweh in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses. Psalm 107:23-28
