The Palestine Strategy

20 Nov

The Palestine Strategy…

People talk about the land of Palestine in Jesus’ time. But Palestine didn’t really exist. Philistines were enemies of Israel. The naming of Palestine was the Romans’ strategy of removing the Jews from their land.

They wanted the world and the Jews to forget that they ever had a land. The Romans did a good job because the world forgot that it was really Israel, their inheritance.

The enemy tries to use that strategy of Palestine. He wants you to not believe in God’s power that will make you the person you are meant to be, to be victorious in Jesus. It wants you to live a substitute life, a messed up, sinful life. It wants your circumstances to discourage you. He wants you to forget God’s promises,

God’s calling on your life, and your inheritance in God just like the Jews. The world may not believe that you can be what God created you to be. Believe in the promises of God.

For Palestine is just a strategy, a substitute life to make you forget. But God will not forget His promise. You are an heir to the Promised Land.

“I, even I, am he who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mere mortals, human beings who are but grass, that you forget the Lord your Maker, who stretches out the heavens and who lays the foundations of the earth, that you live in constant terror every day because of the wrath of the oppressor, who is bent on destruction? For where is the wrath of the oppressor? Isaiah 51:12-13

The enemy wants you to forget God’s calling on your life, and who you are in Him. Don’t let him make you forget. Hold to His Word, to your identity, and your calling.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
