  1. It Is Needful For Men To Hear Only One Voice "For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me." Zechariah 2:8-9

    And With Sure Hope And Joyful Thanksgiving, Praying For Israel "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee." Psalms 122:6

    While Singing Hallelujah ToThe KING OF KINGS "Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD." Zechariah 2:10

    Look Out World, HE's Coming Back~!

  2. George and friends,
    I recently came across the message that Jephthah presented to the leaders of the Ammonites who threatened Israel because they wanted some of the land Israel had acquired after coming out of Egypt.  In Judges 11 he confronts these enemies who distorted history to make a bogus claim on the land.  14 Jephthah sent back messengers to the Ammonite king, 15 saying:
       “This is what Jephthah says: Israel did not take the land of Moab or the land of the Ammonites. 16 But when they came up out of Egypt, Israel went through the wilderness to the Red Sea and on to Kadesh. 17 Then Israel sent messengers to the king of Edom, saying, ‘Give us permission to go through your country,’ but the king of Edom would not listen. They sent also to the king of Moab, and he refused. So Israel stayed at Kadesh.
     18 “Next they traveled through the wilderness, skirted the lands of Edom and Moab, passed along the eastern side of the country of Moab, and camped on the other side of the Arnon. They did not enter the territory of Moab, for the Arnon was its border.
     19 “Then Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites, who ruled in Heshbon, and said to him, ‘Let us pass through your country to our own place.’ 20 Sihon, however, did not trust Israel to pass through his territory. He mustered all his troops and encamped at Jahaz and fought with Israel.
     21 “Then the LORD, the God of Israel, gave Sihon and his whole army into Israel’s hands, and they defeated them. Israel took over all the land of the Amorites who lived in that country, 22 capturing all of it from the Arnon to the Jabbok and from the desert to the Jordan.
     23 “Now since the LORD, the God of Israel, has driven the Amorites out before his people Israel, what right have you to take it over? 24 Will you not take what your god Chemosh gives you? Likewise, whatever the LORD our God has given us, we will possess. 25 Are you any better than Balak son of Zippor, king of Moab? Did he ever quarrel with Israel or fight with them? 26 For three hundred years Israel occupied Heshbon, Aroer, the surrounding settlements and all the towns along the Arnon. Why didn’t you retake them during that time? 27 I have not wronged you, but you are doing me wrong by waging war against me. Let the LORD, the Judge, decide the dispute this day between the Israelites and the Ammonites.”

    The land the Ammonites were asking Israel to give them was land they had never possessed but they just wanted it and were willing to pick a fight because they thought the Israelites were too divided and weak to defend their land.  I love Jephthah's final line- "We will keep what our God has given us.  You can have whatever your god gives you."  This is really the essence of what is happening today as well.  We are seeing a showdown about who is really God.  The enemy is pushing his followers to commit suicide to prove that he is no god at all.  As always the enemy ends up confirming the identity of the true and living God.  Every word of the YHVH comes true.   He watches over His word to bring it to pass.  See Psalm 83.

    Shalom,
    Elmer

    • Yes I agree.  Another aspect that most people don't see is how Psalm 83 may also be connected to Obadiah.

      Obadiah 1:18  And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it.
