God described the blood-letters of the Perpetual Hatred of Israel; as being so contemptuous of Israel that they even loved pursuing the blood-spilling of the children of Israel. Imagine allowing hatred to engulf ones makeup to the extent that you enjoyed such things as suicide bombings, sniper-killings, and body-dismemberment, with hate-filled rhetoric that calls for the total extermination of a whole race of people; even going so far as to promising paradise to all those followers who would submit to spilling the blood of any victims with a Jewish background.
The prophet Obadiah warned the House of Edom to turn their hearts away from their hatred of Israel lest the house of Esau be left without any inheritance at all.
Obadiah 1:10 For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off forever.
Ezekiel had spoken of the day of calamity which Israel would endure, and that during those days of calamity for Israel, that the haters of national Israel would cast lots for Jacob's land, even including lots for the holy city of Jerusalem! Obadiah even spoke of the Holy Mountain of God becoming a drunken cup of madness to entrap the heathen nations that hated and despised Israel because of God's covenant with Jacob.
The days of Israel's calamity began when Israel rejected Jesus as her Messiah. Israel lost her precious promised land, and was cast to the distant corners of the world. But Ezekiel relates in chapter 35 and verse 5 that the calamity for Israel would end when Israel was ripe for the ending of her iniquity; in a day when God providentially restored her back into her rightful place. ( promised land )
The days of calamity for Israel will be completed of course when Israel learns to cry out in bitterness for the one whom she pierced 2000 years ago. ( see September newsletter )
The end of Israel's iniquity is imminent! Even so the perpetual hatred that Seir-Edom-Esau exhibited toward Israel is still existent today in the spite-filled hate-mongering fanatical extremist religious fervor of Fundamentalist Islam, and its many terrorist cells.
The Muslim cleric leader of the Hezbollah cell of terrorist operatives was quoted on November 1st saying; "The road to victory in Jerusalem can only be paved with the blood from our suicide bomber martyrs". Sheik Hassan Nazrallah continued to say that suicidal missions of the holy warriors represents the most effective means of bloodying the psyche of Israel. Sheik Yassin of the Hamas terrorist structure inside of Palestinian controlled areas has called for the killing of Jews and Christians anyplace that they may be found. The temple mount grand Mufti Feisal Husseini has routinely issued calls for killing Israeli's in order to maintain Haram al-Shariff as Muslim.
What a God, this Allah? He commands followers to kill anyone who does not submit. Interestingly, he seems to become very irritated when Israel gets too cute about accessing the Temple Mount, or seeking a Jewish presence on Mount Moriah. It seems that the forces of HELL are unleashed upon Israel when anybody from the House of Jacob insists that Israel has a God-given right to rebuild their Temple! Ah, could that be the underlying reason for nervousness in the Devil's den? I am reminded that Satan does not know when the Tribulation-Rapture shall begin and therefore is very much aware that when Israel can no longer be denied an access to the Temple Mount platform, then he must have his alternative plan of deception utilizing the Antichrist to deceive Israel; ready and logistically in place.
The Devil knows Israel desires a Temple. He also knows Israel expects their Messiah to re-build it for them; and he knows the Mother-of-all Battles looms just over the horizon. I rather imagine that ole Satan gets really filled up with Hate when he anticipates Israel looking toward the place where Jesus said he would someday return, and become Israel's King!
It is very sad though, that Satan is able to use the Perpetual Hatred of Israel to inflame the Arab world against the apple of God's eye. The Palestinian people of today are caught up in the Devil's evil scheme to destroy the House of Jacob. The Palestinian peoples need Jesus as their lord and Savior; just like all other people in the world. Allah can only lead them to utter desolation, as was the case with Mt. Seir.
As Esau-Mt Seir-Edom sought to dispossess the children of Jacob from their promised land; so today the Palestinians are being manipulated by the radical religion of Islam to usurp Israel from their rightful inheritance. Listen to Ezekiel:
Ezekiel 35:10 Because thou hast said, These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess it, whereas the Lord was there.
The ancient people of Esau sought to acquire the lands of Edom and Judea. Judea was the place of Jesus birth, "Bethlehem of Judea", and included the city of Jerusalem. The Edomites were not satisfied with just possessing only the land of Edom; they also wanted to possess the country of Judea. Likewise today, the Palestinians are not content with possessing only the modern area of Edom ( Jordan ); they want to possess as well the country of Judea, which entails the modern state of Israel, and of course that old city of contention; Jerusalem!
Yasser Arafat today incites the Palestinian youth to march onward to Jerusalem. "We will not cease from our "Temple Mount Intifada" until our children can raise the Palestinian flag over the Al-Aqsa mosque in our ( Palestine’s ) eternal capitol of Jerusalem."
But; just as the prophetic paradigm of Mt Seir related God's anger about the past perpetual hatred for Israel, the modern demonic Perpetual Hatred of Israel is fated for his judgement as well. Again, listen to Ezekiel;
And thou shalt know that I am the Lord, and that I have heard all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid out desolate, they are given us to consume.
Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me, ( God ) and have multiplied your words against me; (God) I have heard them.
Thus saith the Lord God; When the whole earth shall rejoiceth, I will make thee ( House of Esau ) desolate.
As thou ( Palestine ) didst rejoice at the inheritance of Israel; because it was desolate, so will I do unto thee;
Yasser Arafat, and all the haters of Israel shall be left in dire consequences unless they repent of their blood-letting ways and acknowledge Israel's right to their blessed inheritance granted unto them by the Lord God Jehovah of Israel; and stop believing the pagan god Allah's claims to supremacy!
"Allah" is behind all the blasphemous hate-filled blood-letting exhortation rhetoric hurled against the mountains of Israel. He is seeking to consume Israel and his messengers of hate have boasted against the God of Israel. But, Jehovah is not mocked! The maniacal yell of the perpetual haters of Israel scream, "Allah-hu Akbar" when they spill Israeli blood in their suicide attacks. This shrill is meant as an insult to the God of Israel, meaning Allah is greater than Jehovah!
