About Jesus Steve Sweetman
Bible portrays God as being actively involved in the affairs of man,
which I believe includes the two great wars of the 20th
century. Whatever reason one
might give for World War 1 and World War 2, the student of the Bible has
his own reason.
result of World War 1 was the defeat of the
a number of decades prior to World War 1 Jews from across Europe,
Africa, and elsewhere, began to relocate to what would become known as Palestine. These Jewish immigrants
turned the once desolate desert into a place ripe for economic
prosperity. Arabs who had
struggled economically for centuries in this wasteland were now
benefitting from the Jewish presence, so much so that more Arabs began

it's not evident to world leaders, how a nation supports
or doesn't support Israel
will determine that nation's destiny.
God made many promises to Abraham and his descendents.
The nations of the world are now making their "critical choice". It's called "a two state solution – land for peace". From a Biblical perspective, I can safely say that this "critical choice" to extract more land from Israel will not go unnoticed in heavens.
