ISRAEL-- PART II

Israel the Nerve Center of the World. In this post I hope to point out some facts that show how Israel is indeed the Nerve Center of the World. Israel is the geographical center of the world; it is and has been a strategic center of the world, important in military and economic occurrences. It has been the spiritual center of the world, the prophetic center of the world, the storm center of the world, the serenity center of the world.

ISRAEL IS IN THE SPHERICAL ( GEOGRAPHICAL) CENTER OF THE WORLD

Ezek. 5: 5 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This [is] Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries [that are] round about her.

Israel has been called the HUB of the world. Israel has been called the navel of the entire earth.

If you get a chance to visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem you will find a spot there that says: “THIS IS THE CENTER OF THE EARTH!” and it is.

It is in the confluence of three continents – Asia, Europe, and Africa

It is also an ANCIENT MILITARY and ECONOMIC CROSSROADS-A Strategic place.

SPIRITUAL CENTER OF THE WORLD

It was here that Moses and prophets taught. It was here that Jesus was born, lived, died and arose again.

PROPHETIC CENTER OF THE WORLD

This is the only nation that has had its future mapped out for it in the pages of the Holy Book called the BIBLE.

STORM CENTER OF THE WORLD

At night when the news is on my friends daughter is not fond of watching the weather in case there is a major storm being projected.

What you are seeing and hearing now on the news in regards to the present Middle East situation is but a weather report alerting the world to get ready for the battle and the storm that is on its way!

To illustrate the point, there were reports about FEMA and the atrocities of the gullibility in that organization when KATRINA struck. Men and women in prison/jail were receiving millions of dollars for damage to property that did not exist. When asked “How could that happen?” The reply was “We were just not prepared”

Many have asked “How could that be?” - There has been warning after warning of the changes in the earth’s climate, temp, and other things that go together to point towards an increase in storms. This one had been forecast long before it hit landfall.

What happened? - The same thing that is occurring today when it comes to Israel – THE WARNING GOT IGNORED! But that did not prevent the storm from coming.

SERENITY CENTER OF THE WORLD (PEACE)

We will never have peace until Jerusalem has peace.

Some other facts about the people of this Jewish nation which some may not realize. It is difficult at times to realize what a tremendous impact that just four tenths of one percent of the population has had on the world in which we live.

1. – It was a Jew who financed Christopher Columbus’ voyage to discover this land we live in (not Ferdinand and Isabella)

2. – A Jewish man was first to put foot on this soil

3. – A Jew with the last name was Solomon financed and gave money to Gen George Washington and Jefferson for the American Revolution

4. –It was a Jewish man who helped you with you last headache - BAYER - he discovered Aspirin

5. -POLIO SHOT? - Salk and Sabin –its founders were Jewish

6. -DIGITALIS – for heart problem? - TRABO who discovered it was Jewish

7. -DENTIST – ever had NOVOCAINE SHOT to help with Pain? Einhorn, Alfred (1856-1917), discovered in 1905

8.- WAXMAN – discovered Streptomycin

9.-FREUD – father of all Psychoanalysis was a JEW

10.-SPINOZA - great philosopher studied about in PHILOSPHY

11.-William Booth’s MOTHER – founder of Salvation Army was a Jewess

The list could go on but I believe the point has been made.

We began with WHEN A NATION IS A MIRACLE - ISRAEL . Next and perhaps the final post in this series will be THE MIRACLE OF THE RESTORATION

Yes, I believe the storm is coming also and I've been listening to those weather reports for a very long time.

Very good article and series.

Glad you enjoy it Maggie. It is a bit different from what I usually write but given the hour and the occurrences of the past few days and weeks I felt that it needed to be put out for folks to see.

Saturday or Monday will be the last of the series showing how Israel was restored, another miracle, and how it will withstand all that is to come regardless of the chief occupiers demands.
