ancient times made modern

World drama! The forces of Major General Qassen Soleimani-v-the forces of President Donald J. Trump. Who will be the victor? Neither! Both will continue to keep the world on high alert. Both determined to annihilate each other. It’s all a matter of who strikes the homeland first. If, you don’t find that scary, see the nearest shrink!

But before annihilation or insanity overwhelms most within our global community. Here’s its etymology. The founders of what was to be or not, choose the not. They choose the not. And global history, took a nose dive destined for constant destruction. And here we are today, on the verge of mutual obliteration.

An Egyptian named Hagar gave birth to a baby boy, whom she named Ishmael. Ishmael grew up and became the originator of Islam. World turmoil then, and now is what it’s all about, who was entitled to be the rightful heirs of the promises made to Abraham. Was it Abraham’s first born Ishmael, or Isaac. Muslims say Ishmael with Jews and Christians arguing Isaac. It’s all about geography, and who has destinies influence through Divine Providence.

Divine Providence has always favored Abraham. And he, was very attached to Ishmael. Abraham was strong headed, and he wanted Ishmael to be his heir. Despite having been advised by Divine Providence that he would have a male heir, who would inherit all the promises made to him. Because of the crippling effects of aging, he assumed, that he and Sarah could never become parents to another son. So he laughed at God and prayed, “Oh, that Ishmael may live before you.

Most of heard it said, “Be careful about what you wish for because you might get your wish.” Bingo! God said to Abraham, “I have heard you; Behold! I have anointed him, and I will make him successful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great world power.” And there you have it two powers striving for global dominance.
