Point / Counterpoint


First of all, my condolences and most heartfelt hopes are with Prime Minister Sharon, his family and the state of Israel. It is sad to see this bull of a man in such a weakened state right now, and many are no doubt wondering why this has happened at this particular time. I must say that clearly, clearly, this tragedy has befallen Mister Sharon because he has been disobeying God Almighty. He has been dividing Israel and God is very angry about that.

God considers this land to be his. You read the Bible and he says "This is my land," and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, "No, this is mine." The prophet Joel makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who "divide my land.' Sharon was dividing God's land and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU, the United Nations, or the United States of America.

Regardless of what the ancient maps say was the Israel of King David's reign, present day Israel is Israel and to give away any of it will infuriate God. I mean look at what happened to Yitzhak Rabin when he tried to barter land for peace with the Palestinians. He was shot dead. These things don't just happen. It was a terrible thing when it happened, but nevertheless he was dead.

So my point is that any Israeli prime minister who dares to forward a lasting peace process in a way that requires God's land -- as it is clearly marked on the maps in our World Almanacs -- to be set assunder will only incur the wrath of the Almighty. Thus spoke the Lord.


Who is this that speaks in My name? Who is this who dares to enlighten the world without first having darkened My door? "Why has this happened?" You have an answer? How can you have an answer when I have not revealed it to you? No, I will ask the questions and you shall answer Me.

Where were you when I laid the bedrock upon which your holiest shrines rest? Did you witness the birth of the stars and the death of the void? What psalm did the angels sing when first rain fell upon the dry sands. Tell me if you know! Who taught the birds of the air to soar and the fish of the deep to swim?

I will question you and you shall answer Me!

Where were you when the mountains arose and the trenches fell? Who planted the vines that sprawl across the globe or the gardens that perfume the air with their sweet scents? What Word unlocked the shackles of sloth to set loose the vibrant aurora and the rolling of the thunder? Surely you must know where the key is engraved!

Can you shout at the clouds and bring down a torrent of water? Can you send lightening bolts on their way? Do they report to you and say "We are here"? Have you seen the warehouse where the snow is stored -- or the sleet or the rain? Have you measured their dimentions and set their schedules? Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons? Can you explain why spiders, rather than flies, spin webs? Tell Me if you can!

There are many things unseen by the eyes that you have been granted; granted for a time of My choosing. There are mysteries to which you still have not found even the sparcest clue. There are codes that you cannot break -- as they were written without your consent or council. The secrets of the earth cannot be found in the sky.

You say that you know Me. I say that you cannot begin to know Me. Will the one who praises the Lord's name correct Him?

I'm reading this on my cell. were you quoting a psalm. Either way it was a poignant way to drive your point home. Thank you!

I wrote it in the style of God's answer to Job.
