Worthy Christian News » Israel-Palestinian Conflict » Memorial Day for 20,906 Soldiers Who Have Fallen in the Arab Wars Against Israel
Today, 25th April 2001, at 11AM the sirens sounded throughout Israel and every Israeli stood for 2 minutes of silence remembering all the soldiers who have died in the wars which the Arabs have conducted against Israel.
Besides those killed there are thousands who have been wounded including 83,962 who are totally incapacitated. In Israel today there are hundreds of thousands of families who lost sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers in these wars. Many very young children were orphaned.
Many thousands of civilians were also killed in the wars and the terrorist operations of the Arabs and left many broken families.
Everyone in the world should know that this is a terrible price for a small nation to pay. These are the people of Gâ€“d who were chosen by Him for a godly eternal mission and over the last 400 years have payed a terrible price in blood all because the nations did not want to accept the Israeli nation because of the mission and vision which Gâ€“d gave them and because Gâ€“d commanded them to keep His Word, His law and to be different from everyone else in the world who did not accept Him and His Word. Only in our generation 6 million Jews were killed by the German devil in terrible ways which the human brain cannot comprehend. Even satan cannot create such a terrible industry of death. Included in the 6 million were 1Â½ million innocent babies and children. They wanted to perpetrate a genocide against the Jewish people and this devil was finally defeated by Gâ€“d and the remainder of the Jewish people survived and were regathered by Gâ€“d to the land which He promised to them where they can live in safety under the protecetion of the Gâ€“d of Israel.
Now again, the 21 Arab enemies of Israel and in their midst the murderer, Arafat and his PLO, Chamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists, the so-called "Palestinians", want to conduct another genocide against Israel and destroy the State of Israel. Together with their many allies all over the world. Only a few days ago we received an email from an Arab who wrote what we hear repeatedly hear from them:
"God will gather all of you Jews in Palestine, so that we Muslims will slaughter you like the pigs & monkeys that you are..."
I quote these terrible words which in Israel are daily translated into hatred, violence and war to bring to the attention of everyone in the world the terrible enemies that Israel has faced for such a long time in her defensive battle against so many who want to destroy her. They and their allies all over the world have bitter illusions when they believe that they can destroy the eternal Gâ€“d of Israel and His prophetic end-time plans to redeem the people and land of Israel. They are terribly deluded when they do not want to accept the Word of Gâ€“d and His covenant with Israel when He gave to Israel the land in an eternal covenant to establish His kingdom there, to build His house in Jerusalem and to make Jerusalem the capital of the Gâ€“d and people of Israel and through this to redeem all mankind, including the Arabs, and to establish the Kingdom of Gâ€“d over all mankind and to base it on His Word and His laws that He gave us in the Torah. The are making a terrible mistake when they do not want to learn from the experience of all the enemies of Israel since Gâ€“d spoke to Abraham including the great powers which were judged by Gâ€“d and disappeared from the history of mankind. Gâ€“d blessed the Arabs with 21 large countries, more than 650 million square kilometres, and that is not enough for them and they want to take away from Israel the small land which Gâ€“d gave to them for a godly purpose. The battle against Israel is not only to destroy her and take from her the land but, as it was in Biblical times, they want to destroy the word which Gâ€“d gave to Israel and the godly eternal task to which Gâ€“d called Israel. They will never accept Israel and when they speak together with their allies about a false peace, they mean to take the small land of Israel piece by piece.
On this memorial day for the Israeli heroes who died on the battlefield for the Gâ€“d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, for His Word and for the vision that He gave to Israel, we want to say in the name of our great Gâ€“d that they have no chance to defeat Him or His children, Israel. He is determined to redeem the people and land of Israel, to rebuild His house which will be a house of prayer for all nations, including the Arabs, who will understand and accept this, and to bring Mashiach ben David which will open a new era in the life of all nations. This is also a memorial day for many Israeli soldiers who have died in this battle since Abraham started his mission for his seed, Israel, and for all mankind.
On this day I want to bring the Word of Gâ€“d to the ears of all the enemies of Israel to warn them. Perhaps they will stop their violence before it is too late for them.
"For the day of the Lord is near upon all the nations. As you have done, it shall be done to you; your reward shall return upon your own head. For as you have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the nations drink continually; indeed, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been. But upon Mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their own possessions. And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau stubble, and they shall burn them and consume them; and none shall remain of the house of Esau; for the Lord has spoken it. And they of the Negev shall possess the Mount of Esau; and they of the Shephelah the land of the Philistines; and they shall possess the field of Ephraim, and the field of Samaria; and Benjamin shall possess Gilead. And this exiled host of the people of Israel, who are among the Canaanites, as far as Zarephath; and the exiles of Jerusalem, who are in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the Negev. And saviours shall ascend Mount Zion to judge the Mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the Lord's." (Obadiah15-21)
Also I want to advise them all to pay attention to Gâ€“d's plans with Israel at this time: "Again the word of the Lord of hosts came to me, saying, Thus says the Lord of hosts; I was zealous for Zion with great zeal, and I was zealous for her with great fury. Thus says the Lord: I have returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem; and Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth; and the mountain of the Lord of hosts the Holy Mountain. Thus says the Lord of hosts: Old men and old women shall again dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for the fullness of days. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in its streets. Thus says the Lord of hosts: If it is marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in my eyes? says the Lord of hosts. Thus says the Lord of hosts: Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country; And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem; and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness. Thus says the Lord of hosts: Let your hands be strong, you who hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, who spoke on the day that the foundation of the house of the Lord of hosts was laid, saying that the temple might be built. For before these days there was no wage for man, nor any wage for beast; nor was there any peace to him who went out or who came in, because of the adversary; for I set all men everyone against his neighbour. But now I will not be to the remnant of this people as in the former days, says the Lord of hosts. For there shall be the seed of peace; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her produce, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things. And it shall come to pass, that as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, but let your hands be strong. For thus says the Lord of hosts: As I intended to do evil to you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, says the Lord of hosts, and I did not relent; So do I intend in these days to do good to Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. Do not fear. These are the things that you shall do; Speak every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates; And let none of you plot evil in your hearts against his neighbour; do not love false oaths; for all these are things that I hate, said the Lord. And the word of the Lord of hosts came to me, saying, Thus says the Lord of hosts: The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall become times of joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts to the house of Judah; therefore love truth and peace. Thus says the Lord of hosts: It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities; And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to entreat the favour of the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts. I will go also. And many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord. Thus says the Lord of hosts: In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men from the nations of every language, shall take hold of the robe of a Jew, saying, We will go with you; for we have heard that God is with you." (Zechariah8:1-23)
On this memorial day we honour, love and will never forget the great sacrifice of these heroes who died to make this vision of Gâ€“d a reality in our lifetime. Everyone in the world should share these feelings and know that Israel is now facing a godly battle to defend and fulfil His prophetic end-time vision. The people of Israel and her messengers of The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement are engaged in a difficult struggle and battle to make this vision and dream of the Gâ€“d and people of Israel, a reality, not only in the life of Israel, but also in the life of all mankind. We are strong with Gâ€“d, we trust Him and we know that He is fighting for us in all the battles exactly as He promised: "Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle." (Zechariah14:3)
The people of Israel and The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement will continue to fight together with the Gâ€“d of Israel and the Universe until the vision and word of Gâ€“d are fulfilled in our lifetime. Nobody can prevent Gâ€“d's prophetic end-time vision for Israel and all mankind an no enemy can destroy it:
"The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. And many people shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths; for from Zion shall go forth Torah, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall decide for many people; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nor shall they learn war any more. O house of Jacob, come, and let us walk in the light of the Lord." (Isaiah2:1-5)
