Have you complaint over what you’d
look at and find when you see…
as if any country could be restored
by man, not God, once gone- futility?
This to cry foul if a land is taken away,
removed by God’s own hand as a pawn
He might play in the field of our lives…
wrong or right is not found in the dawn
or on the grass we feel with our feet,
this is God’s own, as its Maker, to do
with as He wishes… ‘the way’ to God
is told in the Gospel, also is the who
God has granted all authority, by proxy,
to His Son… bled at the cross for all
those believers in His resurrection…
don’t you hear knocking, take it a call!
Should man say God has stolen from him anything? I think not! It makes the claim, by some, Israel stands on stolen ground ridiculous. To even think there is an iota of truth to this is to oppose God- be disobedient to what He has done on our behalf. The land of Canaan was given by God to the people He selected… He chose to do this, and for any man to state differently than this is either lying or suffers under grand delusions- self imposed and self inflicted. Think about it, who are we to question the motives of God or to think they might do better than the designs and handiwork seen all about us in the natural world we live in?
The Call of Abram
Genesis 12:1-3 1 The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. 2 “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
Job 9:12 & 13 12 If he snatches away, who can stop him? Who can say to him, ‘What are you doing?’ 13 God does not restrain his anger; even the cohorts of Rahab cowered at his feet.
You can read the effects of Job 1:15 from here, a different perspective indeed.
