Israeli Defense Force soldiers found the bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped two weeks ago. They were found very near to where they were kidnapped in Hebron and the dead bodies were found under a pile of rocks.
PM Netanyahu said Hamas is responsible and Hamas will pay. An intensive manhunt is underway for the two suspects of Hamas who did the kidnapping and the killing.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Radical Palestinians killing three young Israelis is a page from Bible prophecy. The conflict between the Palestinians and the Israelis is a 4000 year old conflict. In the womb of their mother Rebecca, Genesis 25, Jacob and Esau were struggling. God told Rebecca that these twin brothers would become nations in the future, each of them. Jacob and his twelve sons became the Jewish state of Israel today. Esau and his descendants, the Edomites can be traced through history and that study will reveal that the Edomites, Esau's descendants are the Palestinian people of today.
Ezekiel 35 is a prophecy that is focused on the Palestinians. Ezekiel 35:5 says that the Palestinians will kill the Jews and verse 10 says that then the Palestinians will take the land that God has given the Jewish people. As I have already mentioned, the Edomites, the descendants of Esau are the Palestinian people today and there are additional prophetic passages of scripture that deal with these Palestinian people in the last days. For example, Malachi 1 talks about the Palestinians, the Edomites, descendants of Esau coming back restoring themselves into a land that God has given the Jewish people and the Edomites say they will rebuild.
The Lord says they will rebuild, their borders will be the borders of wickedness and God will have indignation against them forever. The little book of Obadiah found in the prophetic passages of God's Word lays out an end times scenario for the Palestinian people, they will take charge of the city of Jerusalem, in particular the Temple Mount and at that time in history Jesus Christ will come back, He will then allow the Jewish people to defeat the Palestinians and the Palestinians will be as if they had never been.
The kidnapping and the murders of three Israeli teenagers is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
