    I never realized the number of tragic events that have occurred during this Hebraic month. Tragedies that YHWH has used to bring the nation of Y’srael about. Much of this ‘piece’ seems to be occurring again. We must stand steadfast in our faith, putting on our spiritual weapons everyday to do our part to uphold His righteous ways. Doing my best to stand firm with you, brother, and all the rest of the body of Mashiach.

    Bill far be it from me to disagree w/what you brought forth; however, wasn’t it because of the Balfour Declaration in Nov of 1917 that Great Britain agreed for a Jewish state in what was known then as Palestine? Yes. And before the Armistice of WW I was signed.
    WW I ended in an armistice/truce or cessation of hostilities…..never truly ended “the war” as we fast forward to WWII, etc. Having said all that,… The armistice between the Allies and Germany – known as the Armistice of Compiègne after the location it was signed – was the agreement that ended the fighting in western Europe that comprised the First World War. It went into effect at 11 a.m. Paris time on 11 November 1918, and marked a victory for the Allies and a complete defeat for Germany, although not technically a surrender. The Germans were responding to the policies proposed by American president Woodrow Wilson The actual ,proposal included the cessation of hostilities, the withdrawal of German troops to behind their own borders, the preservation of infrastructure, the exchange of prisoners, a promise of reparations, the disposition of German warships and submarines, and conditions for prolonging or terminating the armistice. Although the armistice ended the actual fighting, it took six months of negotiations at the Paris Peace Conference to conclude the peace treaty, the Treaty of Versailles.
    Does any of what you read sound familiar……fast forward to1978–2014. Will Israel sign an agreement that will halt hostilities, probably.! Our hope is not in what they do but what our Heavenly FATHER is going to do as long as we keep our eyes focused on HIM and pray for the Peace of Yahrushalem. Enjoy the history w/your messages.
    Shalom,
    Sue

      Sue; your vast knowledge of history leaves my head spinning (in a good way). Thanks so much for your insight into this issue and, yes, it does seem familiar as it relates to current events. Shalom to all in Vincennes and the fellowship there.
