News From Jerusalem
by Tom Brennan,
In the Gospels Yeshua says “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth”. He also says “learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart”. Modern day thinking considers “meekness” and humility to be passive and weak. Biblical thinking looks beyond semantics and pop culture. Meekness in Biblical terms is strength under control. The recent history of Israel and relations with the United States and Europe is fraught with insults, deliberate attempts to influence Israel’s elections and a general anti-Israel and anti-Semitic attitude. We need to look to the character of Israel and learn what true meekness means.
Israel’s future is ordained by the eternal covenant made by God with Abraham, and eternal is just that, eternal. Israel will exist no matter how many armies, boycotts, terror attacks or betrayals anyone can muster. PM Netanyahu meets with others for a regular Bible study and seeks guidance not in the advice of men but God. He is the most mortal of men and flawed like all of us. Yet his traveling to America to meet with someone who deliberately tried to have him voted out of office, has allowed his staff to slander him and Israel shows a character that is guided not from instinct and personal gain but by the Word of God he studies.
Israel must defend its people (of all religions who live as citizens in The Land), its lands given by covenant, and the trust to protect the place where the Messiah will return in the last days. PM Netanyahu will be the recipient of an award by the prestigious American Enterprise Institute and it is well earned and deserved. It will be accepted on behalf of all Israelis, Jews, Christians and Arab Christians and Muslim who live lawfully within the land of Israel.
Forgiveness is not a weakness; it demands strength and a degree of expectation that the enemy or perpetrator will not commit the offense again. Forgiveness does not grant license to continue the abuse, or to enable the one in error. We can put this idea to work in our personal live and in how our nations conduct diplomacy. As Ronald Reagan once said, “trust but verify”.
In America we say, welcome back Mr. Netanyahu. Thank you Israel for your example of diplomacy, true meekness and covenantal strength.
