G-D'S WORD IS OUR GUARANTEE

(A Biblical Analysis of our Times)

by Gary M. Cooperberg

There are those who complain that, without a true prophet, we are like sheep without a shepherd. Yet the fact is, we have in our possession solutions to all of our problems in G-d's word, as revealed in His Holy Torah, and in the word of the prophets of old. Would that the leaders of the Jewish State but turn to the Fountain of Living Waters which lies at their fingertips rather than search the four corners of the earth to devise foolish plans which they think will placate our enemies, but which will only plunge us deeper into the abyss of confusion in which we find ourselves today.

Let us see what the Bible says to our modern purveyors of "peace" who claim that forces greater than we leave us no choice but to give up on G-d's promise to our father Abraham. One can also better understand, through the following words, why peace will never be achieved by Jewish rejection of our G-d given land as its basis:

Ezekiel: 13:3,10,12,14,19,22, and 23 -

Thus saith the L-rd G-d; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying "peace"; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, other daubed it with untempered mortar: Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it? So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof; and ye shall know that I am the L-rd. And will ye pollute me among My people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies? Because with your lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life: Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, not divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the L-rd.

Prime Minister Menachem Begin sat with President Jimmy Carter and Anwar Sadat and, in the name of "peace", signed a treaty which recognized legitimate rights for a fraudulent entity and paved the way for Israel's enemies to destroy her from within. To further the catastrophic precedent of Begin, his follower, Yitzchak Shamir, proposed yet another plan for "peace" by offering the enemy within "elections" whose end result would only strengthen the ability of Arab migrants to "peacefully" put an end to the Jewish State. An Prime Minister Rabin, too impatient to wait for elections, arbitrarily transformed an arch murderer into a hero as he appointed Arafat King of "Palestine". And today, as a result of these policies, Arabs continue to murder and maim Jews, even as Peres turns murderous criminals loose from our jails, gives them weapons, police stations, fortresses and our holy cities while referring to the PLO army as "policemen".

Are we then to be surprised to watch our enemies laugh at us as they defeat the IDF with a fight? When it had been suggested that Arab terrorist inciters who vow to destroy Israel be transferred out of the Jewish State, so called "defenders of citizens rights", rushed in to save "democracy". They decry such a suggestion as "racism". Those self hating Jews are so riddled with fear that they do battle for their enemies in the hope that the Arab victors will one day show mercy to them. And now, since the infamous handshake on the White House lawn, the concept of peaceful transfer of Arab terrorists is no longer an option.

Deuteronomy VII vs. 17-19, and XI vs. 22-25:

If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations are more than I; how can I dispossess them? Thou shalt not be afraid of them; but shalt well remember what the L-rd thy G-d did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt; The great temptations which thine eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the stretched out arm, whereby the L-rd thy G-d brought thee out: so shall the L-rd thy G-d do unto all the people of whom thou art afraid. For if you shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the L-rd your G-d, to walk in all His ways, and to cleave unto Him; Then will the L-rd drive out all these nations from before you and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves. Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness even unto Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be. There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the L-rd your G-d shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon al the land that ye shall tread upon, as He hath said unto you.
The cunning Arab squatters, whose ancient historical connection with the Land of Israel spans nearly 100 years, include among their slander of the Jewish people, their complaint that Jews have come from other countries and taken away what is rightfully theirs. If one would but trace the history of these fraudulent Arab migrants and thieves, he would discover an abundant lack of authentic history, or legal acquisition of the land upon which they live. But rather than waste time on trivial mundane pursuits, one has but to open his Bible to clearly see what is taking place in the Promised Land today:

Deuteronomy XXX vs. 3;5:

Then the L-rd thy G-d will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the L-rd thy G-d hath scattered thee. If any of thine be driven out unto the utmost parts of heaven, from thence will the L-rd thy G-d gather thee, and from thence will He fetch thee: And the L-rd thy G-d will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and He will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.
And today one finds those who claim that the Jewish people are no longer worthy of G-d's promise and that there is no hope for Jewish return to succeed any longer. This claim too, is not an item for debate, only for scholarly research. For G-d foresaw our weaknesses and transgressions, yet determined to keep his promise to our Father Abraham in any event. For it is through us, his chosen people, that G-d has decreed to demonstrate His greatness in the world:

Ezekiel XXXVI vs. 20-24:

And I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged them. And when they entered unto the nations, whither they went, they profaned My holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of the L-rd, and are gone forth out of His land. But I had pity for Mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations whither they went. Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the L-rd G-d: I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for Mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the nations whither ye went. And I will sanctify My great name, which was profaned among the nations, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the nations shall know that I am the L-rd, saith the L-rd G-d, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. For I will take you from among the nations, and gather you out of all the countries, and bring you into your own land.
Isaiah LXVIII vs. 9-11:
For My name's sake will I defer Mine anger, and for My praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off. Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction. For Mine own sake, even for Mine own sake, will I do it: for how should My name be polluted? and I will not give My glory unto another.
The Bible was written by G-d to teach Man how to use the precious gift of life. Knowing that education by example is truly the best way to teach, he chose one people and entered into an irrevocable covenant with them. They would learn and follow the teachings of His Law so the nations of the world could see the good resulting from submitting our will to His; and He would not destroy the world. The very foundations of the world shook on that day, seven weeks after our exodus from Egypt, as the existence of the world stood in the balance, awaiting our agreement. With one voice the Children of Israel declared, "We will do and we will learn", and the heavens resounded with the joy of the singing of myriads of angels.

It was G-d's will to bring peace and good to the world through the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Jewish people. As He warned through His Bible, we were dispersed throughout the world and exiled from our country. We were humiliated, degraded, spat upon, defiled, murdered, raped tortured and nearly annihilated...all of which was predicted. Now that our enemies have gloated at our misery and labeled us as a people condemned to eternal wandering in exile, they are stunned to observe the rest of G-d's predictions coming to pass as this beaten, dispersed, weak and persecuted people have picked up their bedraggled remnants, survivors of Hitler's war against the Jews, and in the face of impossible odds, returned to their ancient homeland where they have resurrected a sovereign Jewish state.

Today Prime Minister Peres continues to surrender to Arafat and Asad, despite the increase of terror, and the obvious fact that peace is further away than ever.

Real peace will only come as a result of the Divine Process of Zionism. Jewish return to the Land of Israel from all four corners of the Earth, to reestablish a Jewish Kingdom based upon the Law of G-d is the purpose of redemption. G-d's Will is to bring genuine peace to all Mankind through His People, Israel. This too explains His very special blessing to our Father, Abraham:

And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the Earth be blessed. Genesis 12:2-3
