Two players sit across from each other contemplating how to checkmate the opposing king. But bound, by specific rules of play. What if those sixteen pieces of six kinds, could communicate with the mover of those pieces. Would the mover be motivated to make different moves; resulting in a possible different end? Most likely not because the mover is in control, and ultimately selects the moves, and associated consequences.
Think of humanity as players contemplating how to checkmate opposing nations. For this scenario, the Bible is considered the binding rules of play. One of the players in this game is Israel. The other player is represented by the remaining nations. In this game of life there are far more than sixteen pieces of six kinds. The pieces representing nations and the kinds representing people.
The problem one might conclude is that the players Israel and the other nations are driven to ignore the rule book. And the worlds people, who might be able steer the players to a different checkmate are mostly indifference. So, it could be argued that ignoring the book of rules, and public indifference to steer a different course is responsible for our current world dilemma.
In a time far in the past a God created a people. God said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our Likeness,” Genesis 1: 26a.
From Genesis, we will fast foreword to Ezekiel. Where a prophecy foretells the regathering of a disobedient Israeli people into a rich and powerful nation. In Ezekiel 36, from other countries. I will bring you to your land, verse 24. You will dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, verse 28. Prophecy fulfilled in 1948. I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, verse 30. Israel the land of plenty from a barren desert, verses 34-38.
Israel the recipient of many checkmates is now the chess-master of the Middle East. Surrounded by helpless Islamic nations wanting to exercise the ultimate checkmate. The annihilation of this Jewish state.
