The more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and prospered. – Exodus 1:12
Following on from last week’s comment on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech in Washington, in which he outlines some of the statistics of the amazing growth that is taking place in almost every sector in Israel, I want to make sure we all understand that this growth that we are witnessing is the hand of GOD at work. What makes the growth even more amazing, and confirms that it can only be from YHVH, is that Israel is blossoming at the same time that most of the world is coming against this tiny nation that God declares is the nation that HE is burning with jealousy for and that HE is zealous for with great Zeal (Zechariah 8:2)
Sadly I am not exaggerating when I say that today Israel is the most hated nation, in spite of the fact that most of the good things that we enjoy in the 21st century, comes from Israel, or from Jews who are yet to return to the land of their forefathers. I am referring to scientific advances, medical advances, communication and computing advances, education, irrigation and food production technology, art and literature, and much more. It is the fulfillment of God’s plan to use Israel to bless the nations. How foolish the nations and the people are who are opposing the ongoing restoration of Israel, and who are trying to deprive others of the blessings that Israel brings to the world by encouraging businesses, organisations, universities, and the public to boycott and divest from anything that is connected to Israel.
What I am talking about here is nothing new – it goes all the way back to ancient Egypt. The leaders in Egypt saw the Hebrews prospering, even under their cruel slavery and mistreatment of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob’s descendants. We read in Exodus 1:9 – 10, Look the sons of Israel (Jacob) are too numerous and too powerful for us. Come let us deal shrewdly with them, or else they will grow even more numerous. As we read on we see that the Egyptians increased the affliction and hard labour on the Hebrews, but YHVH saw pain and heard the cries of HIS people, and HIS hand caused them to multiply. And of course we know that GOD had a plan to bring them out of slavery in Egypt and into the land that HE promised to Abraham. Egypt was the land of blood, sweat and ears but the Promised Land was the land of ‘milk and honey.’
Ever since the Israelites entered the Promised Land almost 4000 years ago, the devil has had a succession of his proxies, who have attempted to destroy them, in the hope of aborting the plan of God to re-establish His Kingdom on the Earth. As a result, millions of Jewish people have been murdered over the millenia, climaxing in more than 6.5 million Jewish men, women and children perishing in the cruelest way during the Nazi Holocaust. However YHVH played His hand again and out of the ashes of the Holocaust, the nation of Israel was resurrected. Over the 70 years of modern Israel’s existence, God has brought about the same supernatural growth and increase, to the point that Israel leads the entire world in many ways.
Even though most people in the Western World claim to abhor war and violence, and say they seek peace and love for all, under the influence of the evil one, they hate Israel and they exhibit the same anti Jewish attitudes and behaviour that led to all of histories attacks against the Jews, culminating in the Holocaust. The scene is being set up for the final attempt to destroy the Jews and stop the 2nd coming of the Messiah to re-establish the Kingdom in Jerusalem. And if that is true, then we can also expect God to be true to His form, and we will see Israel and the Jewish people continue to increase and prosper to an even greater level than we have seen until now. If the Devil’s final and worst attack is about to come, then YHVH’s best is also about to come.
Last November Deutches bank placed the Israeli currency the 2nd strongest in the world after China. The Israeli economy is being reported as one of the strongest in the world. The purpose of this comment is to again encourage you to place your investments in Israel. Invest your resources where the future is the best. Invest your prayer life into Israel. Invest your solidarity into Israel. Invest your holiday time in Israel. And if you have some cash on hand we suggest that you invest it in Israel. Our son Stefan can give you good advice in that area – email@example.com One of the best financial investments in Israel is property. With millions of Jews still to return (Ezekiel 36:8 – 10), the value of apartments can only increase. Anyone is allowed to buy an apartment in Israel. If you are interested in learning more about what is involved, please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
