Is that what you see,


Yes , that is what I see but they/we are not doing it . I also see how they are to do this .
Firstly , Israel is not just America or the nation of Israel but include Great Britain and the countries of the British Commonwealth including little old NZ . The ends of the earth .
We can only bring peace by believing in the Messiah ( Jesus Christ ) and His sacrifice for us , accept and follow His new , Perfect Law , and become united ourselves . Then the Messiah will bring the peace you are talking about . The thing about His perfect law is that when we believe , it will unite us . We don't have to do God's work for Him like all religions are .Therefore then , Israel will be the bringer of peace to the world because we will embrace all strangers by this law .

I prayed that the verse:

"Love the Stranger as you would love your own" would become a reality in Palestine just as He requested so very long ago & I would live to see it.

It does appear that this isn't going to happen after all.

I'm 65 and a little wobbly so my wish days are coming to an end.

Still I see hope, and smiles here and there.

There is still hope for the best

I just will not be here to see it (:-

just a thought

"Peace" in the sense of well being comes from within, not from another, whomever he or she may be.

Jesus Christ knew the difference and tried to teach us this. He is succeeding even if He is not here in the flesh to see it completed. His words are still with us & and we are still learning. The tide is in our favor,,.,,,.,. it just takes time.

Believe me, the words of Jesus Christ will remain with us for all time to come.

Every country in the UN has passed into "Law" the following~~~

(Lev 19:34 KJV) But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God

Amen (:-

Don't be so morbid Tom . I'm 68 and still a spring chicken . ( groan )

Peace will come through our saviour , God Himself , our Lord . Real peace .

Isaiah 48:18  O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:

Isaiah 48:22  There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

Isaiah 52:7  ¶How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

Isaiah 53:5  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Isaiah 54:10  For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

Psalms 125:5  As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.

Psalms 128:6  Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.

Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:7  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.



Psalms 39:12  Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.

That was a beautiful post except for the above !!

But, but, but Israel was a person not a place and to call the land Israel is a disgrace to His name. No such place existed prior to 1947, nada, zip

Not in my lifetime or ever if they do not embrace the "stranger" as He instructed them to do. And as you have admitted here, they are not !!

Now what comes next-?

There is a section in there where a number of newspaper articles detailed the singling out and killing of children occurred. Should that time period be removed from the site-?

just curious (:-

You have noticed as if one can really see “satan” -?

Satan is nothing more than a figment of the imagination. In the “real” world, no such thing exists.
The "word" was invented out of one’s imagination with a script line to boot.
“Satan” is just a mythical word conjured up by a writer long ago.

To equate this term with the KJV version of the Holy Bible is false. In God’s world, our world, there never was a real thing called or referred to as “satan”

satan” is for comic si-fi’s

NOT for real Biblical talk.

The Israel we see and hear about on the world stage is not the real Israel . The real Israel is still hidden to the world but observed by the few who know who she really is . This is the Israel that embraces the strangers in the midst and waits for the man of peace to come . :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

"Can only",.,.,. you say. The Lord was around way before then. 98% of the Ten Commandments has been written into "public" law in one form or another.

Ten Commandments
[1] Thou shall have no other god before Me;
[2] Thou shall not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in haven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
[3] Thou shall not bow down thyself to them, nor serve the; for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the inequity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments;
[4] Thou shall not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name invain.
[5] Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy
[6] Honor thy father and thy mother;
[7] Thou shalt not kill
[8] Thou shalt not steal
[9] Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour
[10] Thou shall not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s


The above is what I was taught as a child.

Was my mother wrong in having me put this to memory-?

And waits for what--?

Why wait if you already know what has to be done--?

Even the turtle gets to where it's going. If the turtle waited we would not be seeing no mow turtles today.

And low and behold there still be turtles,.,.,.,,..
