Now let me see if I have this right. Almighty God gave the land of Israel to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants as an EVERLASTING possession, and Pope Francis wants to release a large portion of Israel’s inheritance to a group who is not descended from Isaac and Jacob? It is not fitting that anyone should interfere in the affairs of Almighty God, much less Pope Francis the leader of the Roman Catholic Church. Almighty God permanently settled ownership of the land of Israel by purposefully and specifically giving it to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants eternally. Almighty God is never confused. He knows the beginning from the end. The omniscient Creator hasn’t changed His mind about this. He could have given the Land of Israel to anyone of His choosing. He could have given it temporarily to one and then to someone else; however, He pointedly gave it to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants exclusively, eternally. I value my belongings. When I decide to give some of it to a particular person, it is a result of careful deliberation. If anyone interferes in my decision, I will be very displeased; for after all, I can do with my stuff whatever I choose. Someone else may point out why it is wrong for me to give it to this particular person, but my possessions do not belong to them. That person can dispose of their own possessions in a manner that pleases them, but they may not dispose of my possessions, for I am the owner of my possessions. It is the most basic law of ownership. Notice Genesis 25:5-6, ” And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac. But unto the sons of the concubines which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts and sent them away from Isaac his son while he yet lived eastward unto the east country.” I challenge you to read the whole section objectively. You can say that it was unfair for Abraham to give all his belongings to Isaac and only give gifts to Ishmael and the others. You can say that it was unfair for Abraham to send Ishmael and the others away from Isaac to the east country. The problem with people saying it is unfair, is that Abraham was doing the will of Almighty God in this matter. To say it is unfair, is to say, that Almighty God is unfair. There is no one more fair than the Almighty. Let us continue our rationale here. You can say that it is unfair for Israel to possess the land of the Palestinians, but none of the land of Israel belongs to the Palestinians. Abraham gave all he had to Isaac and sent Ishmael and the others away from Isaac to the east country, because this is what the Almighty wanted. You can call Israel an apartheid state, but really you are accusing the Almighty of being unjust when you do this. You can say that the people of Israel are undemocratic by not doing with the land what the Palestinians want them to do, but saying such a thing is opposing the will and word of Almighty God. It is never wise to oppose the will of the Great Creator. You may say, “BUT, we need to have peace in the middle-east”. Doesn’t that sound so noble? So let me get this right. You are saying that the wishes of the Almighty are in opposition to the notion of peace? You see, herein lies the crux of the whole matter. Do you really believe we can achieve a lasting just peace while excluding YaHVeH? Such a thing is completely 100% absurdly preposterous; and yet, this is exactly what the whole world is trying to accomplish. The whole world is disregarding the wishes of the Great Creator, while professing that their designs are just and right. In essence the whole world is declaring that Almighty God is unjust, but that the world is just. If you will comprehend what I am saying here, you will comprehend what is completely and ridiculously wrong with the world. And this is exactly why Pope Francis better be very careful how he proceeds in this matter. For Pope Francis to advocate dividing Israel’s inheritance with the sons of Ishmael and others, is to withstand the wishes of Almighty God. There will only be hell to pay, if we resist the Almighty. Resisting the Almighty in the name of peace is still resisting the Almighty. It sounds so good to insist on peace between Isaac and Ishmael, but peace between Isaac and Ishmael in a way that tears down the plans of Almighty God is not a true and lasting peace. Almighty God had Abraham give all that he had to Isaac, because this was His plan before Sarah, Abraham and Hagar brought about the birth of Ishmael. Almighty God had Abraham send Ishmael away from Isaac to the east country, because Ishmael would only interfere in the plans Almighty God had for Isaac and the people of Israel. And get this. The plan Almighty God had for Isaac and the people of Israel was to bring the Messiah Yahshua Jesus into the world to save sinners like me and sinners like you.
