Who Wants To Know Why Arabs Hate Each Other (Sunni/Shiite) & Israelis?

Who wouldn't be jealous if their father picked their younger brother over them?
Who wouldn’t be jealous if their father picked their younger brother over them?

Anyone who thinks the Bible is BORING has NOT read it. It is UTTERLY fascinating. The Sunni/Shiite division among Arabs was FORETOLD- also the ARAB vs. Israeli conflict. They are all, literally, blood brothers- all stemming from Abraham. The Arabs stemmed mostly from Ishmael- the first son of Abraham born to him by his concubine/second wife, Hagar. Israelis are blood related to Isaac, the second son born to Abraham by his first wife, Sarah. Sarah hated Hagar because Hagar mocked her for her infertility. When she was pregnant and gave birth to a SON (so important back then to keep families & wealth together), she became intolerable to Sarah. (what HUMAN drama, huh?). So when Sarah miraculously gets pregnant in her old age with Isaac, she tells her husband that there was no way that HER son would share his inheritance with Ishmael, Hagar’s son. She wanted BOTH of them booted from the family. Abraham loved Ishmael and didn’t want to boot him (soap opera, anyone?), but God told him to listen to Sarah. That he would take care of Ishmael- but he would establish his covenant with ISAAC. Ishmael went on to father the Arab nation- most of whom chose to worship a pagan god, Allah. The Israelis went on to continue their worship of God. God later, purposely defined himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob- to eliminate ALL doubt about his Being. As Arabs do not buy into the whole Isaac & Jacob part of God’s definition, they do not worship God- but the pagan idol, allah.

Here are some great Bible verses for you:

Genesis 16:16-12

16 Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; 2 so she said to Abram, “The Lord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.”

Abram agreed to what Sarai said. 3 So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife. 4 He slept with Hagar, and she conceived.

When she knew she was pregnant, she began to despise her mistress. 5 Then Sarai said to Abram, “You are responsible for the wrong I am suffering. I put my slave in your arms, and now that she knows she is pregnant, she despises me. May the Lord judge between you and me.”

6 “Your slave is in your hands,” Abram said. “Do with her whatever you think best.” Then Sarai mistreated Hagar; so she fled from her.

7 The angel of the Lord found Hagar near a spring in the desert; it was the spring that is beside the road to Shur. 8 And he said, “Hagar, slave of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?”

“I’m running away from my mistress Sarai,” she answered.

9 Then the angel of the Lord told her, “Go back to your mistress and submit to her.” 10 The angel added, “I will increase your descendants so much that they will be too numerous to count.”

11 The angel of the Lord also said to her:

“You are now pregnant
and you will give birth to a son.
You shall name him Ishmael,[a]
for the Lord has heard of your misery.
12 He will be a wild donkey of a man;
his hand will be against everyone
and everyone’s hand against him,
and he will live in hostility
toward[b] all his brothers.”

Genesis 17: 8- 21

“8 And Abraham said to God, “If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!”

19 Then God said, “Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac.[d] I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation. 21 But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you by this time next year.”

————————————
Genesis 21:21-1-10
1 Now the Lord was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did for Sarah what he had promised. 2 Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him. 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac[a] to the son Sarah bore him. 4 When his son Isaac was eight days old, Abraham circumcised him, as God commanded him. 5 Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

6 Sarah said, “God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me.” 7 And she added, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age.”

8 The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast. 9 But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking, 10 and she said to Abraham, “Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac.”

11 The matter distressed Abraham greatly because it concerned his son. 12 But God said to him, “Do not be so distressed about the boy and your slave woman. Listen to whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that your offspring[b] will be reckoned. 13 I will make the son of the slave into a nation also, because he is your offspring.”

14 Early the next morning Abraham took some food and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar. He set them on her shoulders and then sent her off with the boy. She went on her way and wandered in the Desert of Beersheba.

15 When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy under one of the bushes. 16 Then she went off and sat down about a bowshot away, for she thought, “I cannot watch the boy die.” And as she sat there, she[c] began to sob.

17 God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there. 18 Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.”

This explains why the Arabs hate the Jews and are so jealous of them.  After all, they and their mother were rejected by their father.  Who wouldn’t feel that way?  God has also not failed to keep his promise on making them a great nation.  They were once Babylon.  Then, they faded.  Now, they are back again with their fists around the throats of every nation with terrorism.  No doubt about that.

Now, let’s talk about why  Arabs fight each other?  First, we will see that this, also, is prophesied in the Bible in Genesis 16:

“I’m running away from my mistress Sarai,” she answered.

9Then the angel of the Lord told her, “Go back to your mistress and submit to her.” 10The angel added, “I will increase your descendants so much that they will be too numerous to count.”

11The angel of the Lord also said to her:

“You are now pregnant
and you will give birth to a son.
You shall name him Ishmael, for the Lord has heard of your misery.
He will be a wild donkey of a man;
his hand will be against everyone
and everyone’s hand against him,
and he will live in hostility
toward all his brothers.”

We can see how this played out pragmatically throughout history. Relatively speaking, Islam & allah are new compared to Christianity (which includes the Old Testament and thus, Judaism). Islam was ‘created’ by Muhammad in the 600’s AD. The Sunni/Shiite division seems based on two major sticking points: 1) One side believes four of Muhammad’s successors produced legitimate heirs to lead the Muslim nation and the other thinks only the sons of one of these successors is legitimate. 2) They both believe that some missing caliph that disappeared around 930 AD will lead them into conquering the world and making everyone Muslim- but one side thinks he already came and the other thinks he is yet to come.  While these theological differences might seem small to us, they are very large to Muslims- to the point where they are willing to kill each other over them.

The most incredible thing about all of this is that the Bible foretold the Jewish/ Muslim divide thousands of years ago.  It also foretold the inner Muslim divide thousands of years ago.   One can even see that terrorism is predicted when one looks at the fact that Arabs would be ‘against everyone and everyone’s hand against him.”

The only reason all of mankind doesn’t worship God when they see such proof of his omniscience  is because they are blinded by their own desires.  They do not want to bend the knee to anyone but themselves- and this opens the door for satan’s wiles.  Given enough time, people can see a blatant miracle in front of their eyes (in the form of the predictive Bible) and they still will not believe.  As Jesus said, 31 ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’ ”~ Luke 16  If emojis existed back in Jesus’ time, I’m sure Jesus would have added a ‘wink’ right there.

  1. Ya!! What did u said muslim r pagan. I think there is i worm in ua mind. Althought i am muslim but not impressed ua childish coocking story. We have the single and worthest holy book in this wolrd. I respect the bible as torah for prophet (Isa A.S) jesus. BUT CHRISTAN split from muslim saying that jesus is the son of God while muslim diened and said he the massenger of God. Shame!! U have brain think well, when this world are many peaple y will God chioce some1 all r equal b4 God. And as muslim we r the peacest people but it is nt surprising that many nation r suffering war as it was our distin, in turn we will be more telorance. And as 4 a nation y will it fought it self, surely thers evil country behind them. And i knw people like post false imagines, if u knew why did nt u post or told long ago that syria will be heap of riuns. And allah says he doesnt guid people who went stray and will surely be partners of satan in hell. In this world we just come to be tasted if we fall we will be bunished and if we pass then thr is rewand. Hating other people or turning 2 ua wealth is nt going to help u b aware bro and sist. Just try once in Quran and learn sometime you will understand who is pagan?
    Thank u 4 readding

    • Thank you for your comment. But I must say that Allah and God aren’t the same people. If they were, then you would be killing your brothers and sisters in all those terrorist attacks. Instead, you see Christians and Jews as your sworn enemy. Look at the Muslim Brother. They, themselves, say they will not rest until the entire world follows Islam. Not in a peaceful, voluntary way- but through the use of the sword- violence is Islam today. If there are peaceful Muslims, then they should stand up and denounce these terrorist attacks. Does Allah honor suicide? Does Allah honor the killing of children, women and old people? If you blow up a busy market place, who do you think is there? Only your enemy? No. Innocent civilians just going about their lives are there. Why blow them up like that? It is horrible. I have had Muslims tell me that they love peace. But where is the peace in the Middle East?

      As for Syria, I agree. It will become a war zone. Obama will not stop until he has destroyed the entire Middle East. He no longer wants your oil. He has different plans. But he also knows your oil is the cheapest and no one will follow his plan. So he must destroy your lands to convince Americans to switch to S. American oil and ‘green’ energy. Green energy companies are literally owned by his political friends and I am sure he owns the stock as well. He is completely evil. I believe he is the anti-Christ spoken of in the bible. Truly, completely evil. And yes, he will invade Syria (he has been talking about this for at least 2 years), Iran will defend it. This will cause Israel to attack Iran (or the other way around) in order to prevent them from lobbing bombs at them. This will put Iran against America as Israel is still our ‘technical’ ally. When we are at war against Iran, Russia and China will enter the war because they need Iran for oil and for a warm water port. Then, after the entire war is at war, Obama will announce a new plan. A one world government in the UN. If Muslim states don’t join, they will be destroyed. I think they will all join and the Arab leaders will get giant amounts of power & money. Then, my friend, you and I and all our people will be their slaves. This is the true plan. Syria will begin to knock over the dominios. there is no way to prevent it. And I do speak out against Obama and Syria. I don’t hate you. I hate the leaders that are putting regular people like you and me at war. It is the religious and political leaders that cause all the death in the world today. If you love peace, if you love God, then you are my brother. Jesus really is the Son of God and you will see this when he returns. Then, all evil WILL be destroyed, thank God and we will truly be in complete understanding then.

  2. Question: Many believe that Islam or some faction of it is going to be the one-world religion. Others believe the billions of Catholics are going to be deceived by the “last pope” and will be lead into the one-world religion. The Koran mimics a lot of the Christian Bible, and there is a “Catholic Bible” – both full of false teachings, pagan/idolatry, etc. What are your thoughts on these events based on the rampant growth and acceptance of Islam?

    • Having read the Bible and combed minutely through the prophetic books, I just don’t see that there will be a one world religion. Many people use terms that I just don’t see- for example: The Rapture. The Tribulation and One World Religion. These names & events aren’t announced the way most people (who don’t read the scriptures) think. There is no Rapture mentioned in the Bible. The idea of people being resurrected and rising from the ground is mentioned. But that includes non Christians too- we will all ‘meet our Maker’ at that time in this case. This kind of rising is mentioned only a couple of times- but finding the timing is difficult. When Jesus spoke, it sounded like this will only happen after Jesus returns and defeats evil for good. But it doesn’t say that no one will be resurrected before this time. Another example is The Tribulation- as if this is some Biblical EVENT- which it is not. The Bible speaks of a time where there will be great tribulation. But it is not an EVENT. It is a description of a time in our future (or perhaps even now). These are difficult and trying times for Christians. Many will be persecuted because they are Christians. Well, we are already seeing this persecution in Muslim lands. Even here, on American soil, Christian speech is being curtailed. Christian values are being thrown out. And Christian ideals are being openly mocked and spit upon. I know that as a Christian, I am subjected to mockery of the worst kind from both so-called athiests to those who call themselves Christians. Does that mean we are in the time period where Christians will be persecuted? I believe so. But there was not difinitive beginning, was there? So, The Tribulation, as an identifiable EVENT, is not really biblical.

      I give even less credence to the idea of a one world religion. There is no evidence I know of in the Bible that would speak to it. It does say that the Beast, or King, or Annointed One, or the Assyrian (etc) will demand worship for everyone in the world. MUST this be interpreted as a one world religion? I don’t think so.

      My feeling is this: everyone needs to pick up the Bible and READ it. Then, look around & talk to one another. Discuss reasonably what you see in the world and try to decide if the events spoken of in the Bible are coming into fruition. Believe me, at certain points, we will know. But remember, Jesus said his coming will be a surprise to everyone. Even us, who are looking for him. So we need to be ready- and we need to focus on getting others ready. Being ready is being right with God. THAT should be our focus.

      As for the Catholics. I know a lot of people go crazy over their saints and over Mary. But I don’t have a problem with this sect of Christianity for one reason alone: They KNOW and believe that Jesus is their one and only Savior. They know he is the son of God. They know he is both willing AND capable of saving their souls- regardless of their deeds in life. While many say that their ‘hail Mary’s’ and whatnot for ‘penance’ is a replacement for their salvation through Christ, I see no evidence for this. Christ said, “If you are not with me, you are against me.” As far as I can see, all Catholics- down to their core beliefs- are WITH Christ. The other ceremonial stuff is just fluff that doesn’t matter. While we consider them ‘praying’ to the saints as sacrilege, they just consider it the same as ‘talking’ to your mother after she dies. It isn’t WORSHIP. They don’t think they are divine in any way. As long as Christ is considered sovereign and able to be their one and only means to salvation, they are square in my book. Mormons, Seventh Day Adventists, etc, HOWEVER, do not meet this criteria because they do NOT believe that Christ is sufficient for salvation. Without their rituals, priests, and ‘good works’, Christ can’t save them. Also, they do not believe Christ was fully divine- they only consider him to have been a perfect man. A mere example of how to live as a human- no more. So, that is the difference between Catholics and these other pagan faiths.

    • oops- sorry. Perhaps that will be another article. There is an explanation for that too! The Bible gives the answer to WHY they argue and fight. Relatively speaking, Islam & allah are new compared to Christianity (which includes the Old Testament and thus, Judaism). Islam was ‘created’ by Muhammad in the 600’s AD. The Sunni/Shiite division seems a little complicated to me. There seems to be two major reasons: 1) One thinks four of Muhammad’s successors produced legitimate heirs to lead the Muslim nation and the other thinks only the sons of one of these successors is legit. 2) they both believe that some missing caliph that disappeared around 930 AD will lead them into conquering the world and making everyone Muslim- but one side thinks he already came and the other thinks he is yet to come. If I weren’t feeling so cheekish, I would never suggest that they were ‘copying’ the idea of the Messiah to the Jews vs. Christians. Well, that is very broad- but it is about what I know.

    • well, that really was the point! lol! This explains both their infighting and their animosity to the Jews. Yet people will say that the Bible is ‘just a bunch of stories’. So much of current events & history were predicted with such accuracy that any open minded person MUST acknowledge God. But.. you actually have to be seeking truth! Therein lies the problem with the human heart.
