The eyes who do not believe God created life,would see the Israeli Persian buttercup as just a cool way to evolve,to me it is a symbol of God’s promise written in creation.
This is a wildflower of Israel,thriving in the harsh dry conditions that would kill many other plants. To the naked eye it is a pretty red flower, but under a microscope it looks like this..
Dr. Rina Kamenetsky, of Israel’s Volcani Institute, made the surprising discovery while researching the survival mode of this resilient flower, known in Hebrew as Nurit. It has also been called the “resurrection plant” with roots bearing a special mechanism for resisting drought and high heat,that is found in no other plant to this day. The cell walls that serve as a shield, happen to look like the shield of David. The Israeli Persian buttercup has been deemed the ultimate survivor, and so shall Israel be.
The Jewish people have endured, despite hatred and antisemitism they continue to fight unto this very day, and it will not end until the last. Their strength to survive comes straight from the hand of the great I AM, who made them a promise He will not break. Although many wish there was not one Jew left on the face of the earth, to cease the existence of the Jewish people you would have to change the course of the sun.. Jeremiah 31:35-37, although billions of dollars have been spent exploring the heavens, none have been able to sign up for that feat.
Israel has been criticized simply because they fight for the land they inherited, the Torah believing Jew’s know that Israel does not belong to them,the land belongs to the Lord – Leviticus 25:23, they are rightful tenants, and the landlord is Adonai. The Jewish people have been chosen to live in the land He created for them.
For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the people who are on the face of the earth Deuteronomy 7:6. Sadly many fight against God trying to change tenants, the land of Israel was not given to Ishmael, or to any of the other sons of Abraham, but only to Isaac.
Genesis 17:18-19. Throughout history they have set out to land grab, trying to join fields together, and move boundary lines, like King Ahab. Deuteronomy 19:14: Do not move your neighbor’s boundary stone set up by your predecessors in the inheritance you receive in the land the LORD your God is giving you to possess. cursed is the man who would remove a boundary stone from his neighbor.
Genesis 35:11-12– Is the written deed to the land.. unfortunately scripture twisting, and man’s ideology have voided the deed signed in God’s court, that was deemed for a thousand generations. Psalm 105:8-11
Genesis 13:14-17. The Lord made a covenant with Abraham, saying, “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates” Gen. 15:18-21. I will fix your boundary from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the River Euphrates.. this is the entire land of Israel.. but the boundary stones have been removed for the sake of peace, and the land renamed. Ezekiel 37:12–
Israel will never be”Palestine” the name created by Philistines to be an insult, and embraced by the Romans after they conquered the land. Judea and Samaria were once flourishing with greenery, are now parched and brown. Gaza and the Golan Heights are occupied by gunmen, Jerusalem is the primary target by the Palestinians who want it all; as they deny a Jewish connection to the Temple Mount, hiding any evidence of Jewish artifacts found during their illegal archeological digs. In the end the Jewish people will prove victorious. Ezekiel 36:2-5.
This is of no surprise to the all-knowing God, who promised to keep his chosen people through the tremendous hardship they would face.He knew hatred would be set against them, because they first hated Him. Is our view of the Jewish people hindered by the biased media, who paint Israel as inhumane thieves oppressing their neighbors? Jews are blamed for all the trouble in the world; from the black plague, to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. You can hate, attempt to exterminate, or replace Israel with new theology, but you also must answer to God. Genesis 12:3.
I choose to bless God’s chosen, yet hold compassion for those who are set against them through constant indoctrination of hate, if a Muslim desired to love a Jew, it could be punishable by death. Israel would be happy to share the land with their neighbors, but hate will not allow them all to live together in peace. Psalm 122:6
