You don’t see the roots of this conflict between Israel and Hamas being told on the news, but if you look at God’s news (the Holy Bible) this was reported centuries ago. It all begins with Abraham and his two wives who each had a son. Ishmael (who was the son of a slave woman) and Isaac (who was the son Sarah and the son of promise). The conflict really begins with the two women. Hagar the Egyptian and Sarah the original wife of Abraham. When Hagar conceived she began to despise Sarah and that continues with each of their sons.
So Hagar and Ishmael were cast out. This really ticked them off. Ishmael turned his back on the God of his father Abraham because he couldn’t be number 1 and his descendants decided to adapt a different god, Allah. The god of the Islam. No, they are not the same.
Have you ever wondered, WHO IS ALLAH ? WHAT IS ISLAM ? WHO IS MUHAMMAD ? CHECK THIS OUT
So it escalated from the rivalry between brothers to the rivalry between God and Satan (who wants to replace God with himself). This battle is playing out all over the world today, not just in Israel. It will come to our own streets like it has to the streets of Jerusalem if the followers of Allah have their way.
Here are links if you want to listen to the rest of what John Hagge has to say. Although his sermon was from a few years ago it is even more relevent today, in my opinion.
