After Cain killed his brother Abel over the matter of whose sacrifice did God accept, Cain feins innocence and refuses to claim responsibility for his actions. In response to Cain's efforts to remove himself from the scene of the crime, God curses Adam's son that he will not reap benefit from toiling the earth and he will be forced to wander indefinitely in search of a homeland. Out of pain over his punishment, Cain cries out in a loud voice"My punishment is greater than I can bear" (Genesis 4:13). His reaction is not surprising; this is because a homeland with a society of people that share a common lineage is no small matter. After thousands of years of exile, the return of Jewish sovereignty to its Biblical homeland, the Land of Israel, is truly a mark of God’s hand in this world. Today, there are thousands of elderly people who share Cain's terrified sentiment; they endured years of nightmarish punishment and torture at the hands of the Nazis, an experience no one would wish for themselves. Yet these survivors now endure a new punishment: poverty. Without the means to purchase life's basic necessities, our Holocaust survivors are suffering each and every day.
Thank You Lord God of Israel for watching over Israel and keeping all Your people of Your Covenant safe and that their feet will always be on the land of Israel. Thank you for your great love and your supernatural protection over the apple of your Eye Israel and the people of Israel. GOD Bless Israel and thank you for their amazing leader Benjamin Netanyahu whom You chose to lead Israel. GOD bless all the Israeli soldiers and their families for sacrificing their lives, and keeping Israel safe and secure from the enemies that surround her and therefore the rest of the western world can live in peace. GOD BLESS ISRAEL and HIS FACE SHINE UPON HER and GIVE HER HIS SHALOM PEACE Amen. Marlene
