Why can’t Israel find peace? Above all else, Israel yearns for peace, but without the “Prince of Peace.” They desire the promise of God – the land, but without the Person of God – the Messiah. They covet the blessing of God, but without knowing the Blessor Himself. They have returned to the land, but without returning to a relationship with God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Israel’s distressing situation is not rooted in the terrorists, the Palestinian Authority, nor the Muslim leaders; rather, it is their failure to trust in Jesus of Nazareth, the Holy One of Israel, as their long-awaited, promised Messiah and Savior. The heart of Israel’s problem is not external – the hatred of their neighbors toward them; rather, it is internal – the hardness of their own hearts toward God.
God is waiting for Israel to repent!
