Please bear with me for a couple more posts on Israel. The world is ganging up on Israel and even Christians are either complacent or they've turned their back on Israel as well (In a future post, we'll look at the error of "Replacement Theology" which has caused many believers to harden their hearts towards Israel).
There is so much misinformation out there regarding the Mideast Crisis. You hear news analysts say that it's so complicated. The fact is that it's not all that complicated as this video illustrates. Please set aside 6:30 minutes to view this brief little video: "Israel's History in a Nutshell." It's a crash course in understanding what's going on in the Middle East.
And, if you can spare four more minutes, watch the History of Israel. 4000 yrs in 4 minutes. This is a funny, clever, animated video that gives you an overview of what's been going on with Israel since God created the earth. It's apparent this video was created by a Jewish non-believer with one glaring omission: The birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. However, don't let that keep you from appreciating this video. Like the book of Esther where God isn't mentioned once yet His invisible hand is evidenced throughout Esther. So also Jesus is the Lord of history, the Holy One of Israel and this video is all about Him and His faithfulness to keep His covenants and His people.
