The father had a very important mission he had been planning for decades. It had been at the forefront of his agenda every day, of every week, of every month, of every year.
The father had many sons, whom he loved dearly, and he carefully chose one of those sons to accomplish his great plan. He spared no expense in preparation and made all of his personal resources available to his chosen son, for fulfilling the mission.
To show gratitude to his son for working with him, the father prepared a wonderful gift, that would be a reminder from generation to generation of their great partnership.
However, there were other ungrateful self-serving individuals, who did not recognize the value of the father’s plans. They conspired to steal the precious gift for themselves.
In the process of time, the son became careless and self-centered. He had only completed part of his father’s plans, and had neglected to continue the effort. Finally, he lost all interest.
The ungrateful self-serving thieves pestered the son relentlessly. Because the son had come to desire only a life of comfort and ease, he decided to give in and let them to take possession of a large portion of the precious gift, that his father had presented to him to be passed down from generation to generation.
But this did not bring relief. The ungrateful self-serving thieves pestered him all the more. They had lost all respect for him, after he was willing to give up on something so valuable.
The father in my parable is Almighty God. The son is the nation of Israel. This precious gift passed down from generation to generation is THE LAND OF ISRAEL and much more. The ungrateful self-serving thieves are the Palestinians and all the peoples of the world that work with them, to deny Israel complete ownership of their eternal land.
