What We Are Up Against

13 07 2017

What are we facing from the global terrorist threat? It is more than an ideology. We are face to face with demonic evil. Israel has been dealing with it for decades. Here is an example from just last week (July 6,2017). Official Palestinian Authority TV praised a man responsible for murdering 22 school children and four adult hostages in a 1974 terrorist attack in Israel. They make monuments and name streets after these so-called “martyrs” and “freedom fighters”. This video is not from 1974, it is from last week!

Isaiah saw this evil in Jerusalem before the Babylonian captivity. It is not unique to the Palestinians or the Jews of Isaiah’s day. It is the un-redeemed nature of sinful man under the influence of Satan, the devil, who comes only  to “steal, kill and destroy” (in the words of Jesus in John 10:10). Yet, even as Isaiah describes the evil murderous heart of sin, he begins with God’s ability to save us.

Listen! Yehovah’s arm is not too weak to save you, nor is his ear too deaf to hear you call. It’s your sins that have cut you off from God. Because of your sins, he has turned away and will not listen anymore. Your hands are the hands of murderers, and your fingers are filthy with sin. Your lips are full of lies, and your mouth spews corruption. No one cares about being fair and honest. The people’s lawsuits are based on lies. They conceive evil deeds and then give birth to sin. They hatch deadly snakes and weave spiders’ webs. Whoever falls into their webs will die, and there’s danger even in getting near them. Their webs can’t be made into clothing, and nothing they do is productive. All their activity is filled with sin, and violence is their trademark. Their feet run to do evil, and they rush to commit murder. They think only about sinning. Misery and destruction always follow them. They don’t know where to find peace or what it means to be just and good. They have mapped out crooked roads, and no one who follows them knows a moment’s peace. Isaiah 59:1-9 NLT

Please read the rest of Isaiah 59. We had a great Bible study in our Tuesday night group using this chapter. It is time to wake up and know what we are up against. Our confidence in this battle is that Yehovah is on the job. We have read the end of the Book, and we win, if we stand with Yehovah God and Yeshua His Son.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
