JPost: “According to the comptroller report, there are several significant defects regarding preparations in the fields of physical protection, early warning systems and the evacuation of the population, which would increase the risk of civilian lives during a war.
In addition, there has been increased criticism of shortcomings in the coordination between the various government bodies which deal with the home front, including the Defense Ministry, the IDF and the National Security Council.”
Opinion: “Let us take for ourselves the pastures of God for a possession.” Psalm 83:12
It’s about the land. The same land that God promised to Abraham as an everlasting possession. The land that would normally be given to the first-born son but was not, because Ishmael was a child born of the flesh.
“Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise. But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now” Galatians 4:28-29.
The son of promise, Isaac, would be given the title deed to all the land and all the possessions of a wealthy father, explaining the prophecy about Ishmael found in Genesis 16:12:
“He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”
After Isaac died at 180 years, the land was given to the second son again: Esau sold his inheritance for a bowl of soup (Genesis 25:29-33), and Jacob, whom God called Israel, became the rightful owner of the land.
The 3000 year old prophecy of Psalm 83 describes a war to be waged by Israel’s neighbors over that same land. That the exact alignment of nations has never attacked Israel is important since fulfilled prophecy is always perfect.
Both Ishmael’s descendants and Esau’s descendants make up the invasion force.
That the prophecy of a temple priest in 1000 BC was able to name each nation that would be so hostile against Israel thousands of years into the future, should get our attention.
