Its a little late in the season for hurricanes, but as we know weather is unpredictable. I was listening to a show on Israel National Radio (INR), in which the spokesperson on that program mentioned something which I have heard Christians make the same assertions about God also.
The spokesperson said basically that maybe the fires in California, or even this storm are God’s judgement on the U.S. for the way they are treating Israel. I am attempting to give you what I felt was meant in His statement. I went and tried to determine who I was listening to. I don’t want to say the wrong person so I will leave it as is.
Well you hear allot of this kind of talk going around from all sorts of people, and frankly, I think we are all out of line. Trying to determine what God would or is doing is crazy, and I know for sure, that I don’t have an inside line on what His agenda is, today or any other day. I am happy knowing that God Loves me and that I am one of his children.
I try to understand, the Jewish perspective, and I can relate to their reservation in talking to Christians. I am embarrassed for those Christians who are going beyond what our Savior Jesus instructed us to do when we are sharing the Gospel. They argue, and persist in basically, forcing it down peoples throats.
We are instructed to kick the dust off our feet and move on when the Gospel is rejected by someone. I think this here is a good reason for doing that. That we would retain a friendship with those who maybe for right now aren’t interested but, who knows, in the future might be.
We need to remember that God so loved the whole world, not just some of us. And there is just plain respect for people. Jesus told the disciples it was ok to take a sword, but it wasn’t for those who rejected the Gospel.
There are certain Christians that I know, that the Jewish people have high regards for, and believe me you won’t see these people hitting them over the head with their Bibles, they will be loving them just as our God loves us.
If we could do this I believe that there would be allot fewer people like these who are on the defense with Christians who they feel have an ulterior motive. No one takes a defensive position against true love for fellow man.
I will be discussing this on the Mindworthy Audio Commentary
God Bless YOU
