The Hamas War Against Israel
You either have to be dead or deaf not to be aware of the terrorist group Hamas. The Islamic terrorist organization is one of the most violent. I was shocked to recently find out that the Hebrew word hamas means warlike, valor (noun forum) or to be active, brave, constant (verb form) I do not know, and doubt if I will ever learn Arabic fluently. But it is assumed by Hebrew scholar Glenn Kay who provided vital information for this column that this Arabic cognate of the Hebrew hamas is the word utilized by the terrorist group Hamas. Kay also pointed out to my amazement that the word hamas appears in the Biblical scriptures 68 times.
Considering what the Bible says about hamas, I would advise all terrorists to find a new profession. Before any Antifa gumps or Soros saps try to label me as bigoted or worse, let me state for the record, telling the truth does not make one a bigot or worse.
Genesis 6:11 & 13 is the first place in the Bible where the word hamas appears. The earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence (hamas)…And God said unto Noah, the end of all flesh is come before me, for the earth is filled with violence (hamas) through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. In the early chapters of Genesis, God is point blank about the fate of those who practice unprovoked hamas in destruction.
It was the ongoing practice of hamas that brought the flood of God’s judgement on the earth. Right now, Israel and the Middle East in general is filled with hamas. It is possible that the entire earth may once again become filled with hamas by the terrorism of Hamas, bringing down world-wide destruction. That is the view of numerous prognosticators. I for one believe that soon the thrust of Hamas, Isis and other terrorists organizations will be subdued for some time, before the tribulation.
According to Glenn Kay, some theologians believe that the anointed cherub in Ezekiel 28 is a reference to Satan. If this view is correct, then according to Ezekiel 28:16, it was hamas (violence) in the midst of this cherub that caused the Lord to cast him out of the mountain of God. Hamas also appears in Psalms. Prayers are lifted up for deliverance from violent men of hamas. The enemies of God is anointed are described in Psalms as people who breathe out hamas [cruelty] (Psalms 27:12), The habitations of hamas are called the dark places of the earth (Psalms 74:20). Psalms 11:5 openly states that God hates those who love hamas (unprovoked violence) the wicked and him that loveth violence (hamas) his soul hateth.
According to Kay, two passages of scripture that should serve as warnings to today’s terrorists are Obadiah 10 and Joel 3:19. These verses deal specifically with e hamas violence perpetrated by Edom, another name for Esau, the ancestor of Arabs, against Jacob and Judah, the ancestors of the Jewish people.
Obadiah proclaimed, the children of Edom shall be cut off forever because of their violence (hamas) against their brother Jacob. Joel says that Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence (hamas) against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. (If you travel to Israel, you will plainly see the desolate Arab and Palestinian sections right next door to vibrant, prosperous Jewish or Christian enclaves.
So fierce is the wrath of God against the descendants of the Torah says, thou shalt blot out the memory of Amelak [grandson of Esau, and another ancestor of the Arabs] from under heaven (Deuteronomy 25:19). The Hertz commentary makes a remark about this verse that is worth considering in view of today’s Hamas terrorism against Jews in Israel: A people so devoid of natural religion as to kill non-combatants had forfeited all claim to mercy.
I believe Israel’s prayers for deliverance from hamas will be answered. But not via the flawed concept of trying to divide Jerusalem with her enemies who have vowed to destroy her. If president Trump will man up and move the United States embassy to Jerusalem, after some political gnashing of teeth, blessings of peace and stability will come to both Israel and the United States.
In time, Israel’s prayers for deliverance from hamas will be answered. Isaiah’s description of the Messianic Kingdom includes this promise: Violence (hamas) shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders: but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation and thy gates Praise (Isaiah 60:18) May the Lord speedily deliver Israel from the hamas of Hamas and other terrorists. Amen.
