“Hear, O ye mountains, the LORD’S controversy” (Micah 6:2).

“I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of My mountains; and Mine elect shall inherit it, and My servants shall dwell there” (Isaiah 65:9).

“For there shall be a day, that the watchmen shall call upon the mount Ephraim: arise ye, and let us go up to Zion [Jerusalem], unto the LORD our God” (Jeremiah 31:5).

“And I will bring them out from the peoples, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land; and I will feed them upon the mountains of Israel, by the streams, and in all the habitable places of the country. I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be; there shall they lie down in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. I will feed My sheep, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD” (Ezekiel 34:13,14. Read Ezekiel 36:1-15).

The map is evidence that the mountain range is the heartland and backbone of the land of Israel, and is very strategic for Israel’s survival. It is illogical to expect an Arab state in these mountains would not use it to fulfill the long entertained desire to “push the Jews into the sea.”

At the date of this printing, the withdrawal from Gaza has not produced peace, but has brought much upheaval to Israel’s population – and politics. Surrender to a road map for an Arab Palestine state in these mountains is to decree Israel’s demise.

The mountains are a natural fortress for Israel, but greater still are the promises El Shaddai made to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their seed. Israel is the only country in the world with a Divine Title Deed to their land. And there’s a good reason for that: -- The blessing for ALL the families of the world.

Let all nations cease mouthing their opinions and heed the God of the Universe’s plan of world redemption. It is simple and direct. And it works!

The Son of God’s Love repeated it, and reminded us that peace begins with you and me as we ‘love the Lord God will all [our being] and our neighbor as ourselves.’

“There is none other commandment greater than these. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets” (Mark 12:29-31 & Matt. 22:40).
