We May Be Different, But We Are United ✡ "In the Midst of Shomron" - ISRAEL365
And it came to pass, when they were come into Shomron, that Elisha said: ‘Hashem, open the eyes of these men, that they may see.’ And Hashem opened their eyes, and they saw; and, behold, they were in the midst of Shomron.
When Elijah the Prophet ascended to heaven in the fiery chariot thus ending his life on earth, he bestowed upon his closest disciple, Elisha, his own supernatural powers including the ability to perform incredible miracles and a special closeness with God. Today's verse tells the story of one such instance when the Israelite army was facing attack from the Aramean nation. Elisha in particular was threatened as the King of Aram had sent out a warrant for his capture. But when the Aramean army approached Elisha and his forces, Elisha called out to God "Let their eyes be struck with blindness" so they would not realize whom was their target. Once the enemy was hit with such a weakness, Elisha was able to trick them, brought them to a place far away from the Israelites and removed the danger that threatened his people. From here we see absolute determination to remain rooted in the land God promised and remove any threat no matter what it takes. Since 1995, CFOIC Heartland has made every effort to support thousands of Jews who never waver in their dedication to live in the home of their ancestors.
The people of Judea and Samaria have sacrificed a great deal to settle in the Biblical Heartland. But throughout, their faith has kept them strong and kept them focused on G-d's purposes for His people and His land.
One stipulation of the bill dictates
"No community whose establishment the government was involved in, whether through support or funding, will be evacuated." Now that's something we can all get behind!
In the Biblical book of Esther, a single anti-Semitic despot filled with deep hatred of the Jewish people, attempted to carry out a worldwide genocide. Weaving together the facts of history, author Dr. Tricia Miller depicts how the blatant anti-Jewish sentiment exhibited by the evil Haman very closely relates to the contemporary issue of the contested legitimacy of the State of Israel as part of the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict. Indeed, Miller provides a helpful context for identifying the theological and historical errors that form the very foundation of the deeply flawed modern anti-Jewish and anti-Israel narrative that Palestinian Christians are promoting with the help of Evangelical leaders in the United States.
