God sets limits on Atrocities, Amos 1:6a
6 Thus said the Lord:
For three transgressions of Gaza,
For four, I will not revoke it:
Gaza map produced by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, 2005
Gaza is a section of land 25 miles long and between 3.7 to 7.5 miles wide. It has a population of about 1.7 million people. The little section has the 7th highest population growth in the world! The residents were mostly born there, but large numbers falsely claim they are refuges that fled Israel in 1948. The people are Sunni Muslim.
When Israel took the land from the Egypt in 1967, they established 21 settlements in the area and added a lot of important infrastructure to the region.
In 1979 Egypt and Israel signed an agreement, where Egypt agreed to demilitarize the land and Israel would in turn withdraw its military from the area as well. Egypt also renounced all claims to Gaza.
Israel continued to control the area until 1994, and maintained the infrastructure and civil facilities.
In 2000 Gaza began its regular attacks on Israel, firing rockets at Israel, employing and rewarding suicide bombers in Israel, constantly fomenting civil riots, protests and bombings against Israel. Israel has made all kinds of concessions to try to satisfy the Gaza leaders, but nothing has born any fruit. The people ousted their anti-Jewish government fat cat leaders and voted in the most notorious gangster anti-Jewish leaders they could find. The attacks have only stepped up, and the hatred of all Jewish and Christian people has simply become outlandishly evil. Now with the fall of Egypt’s government that tried to abide in some form to the agreements with Israel, there is a completely anti-Jewish Muslim government that has taken Egypt by force. The flow of arms into Gaza from Egypt flows unhindered and unashamed. The rockets used now really get inland in Israel and do more damage.
Israel finally, after letting 1000 rockets hit their cities, had to push back a little and fired back for a couple days, but United States Federal powers went in and forced a cease fire. Of course Israel stopped at the agreed time, and Gaza kept right on shelling Israel for at least another hour, and then claims they won the war, because Israel quit firing first. This is very typical of these not just Godless heathen people, but openly God hating people as they carry out their sworn duty to wage Jihad massacres against all Christians and Jews in the world.
The problem Israel has is it was supposed to fully take over the land of Israel, but never did. They allowed the heathen to remain in Israel and God used the Philistines who originally lived in the area to constantly overpower Israel and control the Israelites. They never were removed as ordered by God. So to this day the land is a staging area for everything and everyone that hates God and His people.
Israel will never rise up and do the job assigned them 4000 years ago. This area is going to remain occupied by Satan’s followers till the Messiah comes back to Jerusalem and brings an end to the Gaza strip forever. Never again will there be people living there that are not part of Israel’s 12 tribes. It will finally be Jewish land without question or challenge.
God notes overstepping power
God monitors the nations, Jeremiah 18:7-10.
7 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; 8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. 9 And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; 10 If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.
God has set limits on national powers, Deuteronomy 32:7–8.
7 Remember the days of old,
Consider the years of many generations:
Ask thy father, and he will shew thee;
Thy elders, and they will tell thee.
8 When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance,
When he separated the sons of Adam,
He set the bounds of the people
According to the number of the children of Israel.
Three violations triggers likely doom
Four violations eliminate pardon
Proper basis for three strikes laws
Gaza will deport a whole region, Amos 1:6b
Because they exiled an entire population,
Which they delivered to Edom.
Gaza already has displaced settlements by lies
The accounts of the many Jewish families that have struggled so very hard against impossible odds and countless Arab threats and actions, being forced from their homes and town to move to start all over again in some other place was heart rending. It did not just happen to one town, but to many in Israel, in the last big concession of towns and land to Gaza.
These people had stood their ground, believing that the land they bought with blood and hard earned cash, was theirs by public document and right as a Jewish person. These people had been driven from what they thought was their homelands to Israel to seek a place to live and to escape the atrocities carried out against them by even the governments, as well as countless Muslims who moved there just to kill Jews. They thought when they reached Israel and purchased land from Arabs, to get a clear and clean title to the land they built upon, as well as permission from the Israeli government that they could finally settle in peace.
No, the United States insisted there would be peace for Israel and all Arab aggressions, rockets, bombs, and other means of destruction and murder would magically cease. Israel must comply or face our wrath as well.
They complied at great cost, and with the whole Arab world looking on in great joy. The families that had done all they could think of to settle and be a peace were being driven out by bulldozers and by their own government, and there was no place to go to accommodate most of the people, because Israel has not been allowed to build more houses, while the Arabs do so illegally constantly and without limit.
Did anything change at all? Yes it did! Things got worse for Israel and have remained far worse. We next voted in an openly Muslim and non-American president and the whole Arab world rejoiced and immediately overthrew all non-Sharia law leaders. The last of the leaders is still apparently holding out, but will soon be gone in Syria. The Muslims have successfully purged their lands of any Christian philosophy or freedom of religion. All must be Muslim to live.
To add to the pain suffered by the displacement of thousands of Jewish people in their own homeland, the Arab attacks have simply increases and they saw success in their endeavors, and reward for their efforts. In spite of American guarantees and promises from the Arabs, the promised peace did not come, nor did any concessions happen on the Arab’s part.
Already Gaza should have lost all credibility in the world and simply lost their chance to govern, proving they cannot be trusted and will not seek to abide in peace with her neighbors. Instead of Gaza suffering as a result, the people have openly declared their independence and the United Nations has fully accepted them as a member, and Israel continues to be called the problem and only an illegal squatter on Arab land.
Gaza will exile all Jewish people in an area
As is clearly proven by the evidence, Gaza will win the political war. They have won the media war, and some might say they already have won the political war. It is only a matter of days before they actively move the Jews out, city by city and take over the land militarily. The amount of weapons they are amassing right now and stockpiling from Iran, Egypt, Turkey, Syria, Africa, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and even the United States is amazing. Much of our weaponry is given to those in Iraq and Afghanistan and it immediately is in Gaza being used!
The accuracy and range of the missiles and rockets being fired into the heart of Israel has forced it to try to strike back and try to stop some of the horrible loss of life and buildings.
Of course, as soon as Israel tried to defend itself, we sent the most wicked in our Federal government over to stop it. As usual, Israel made and agreement and stuck to it. An hour after Gaza had promised to stop firing, they were still firing rockets, but Israel just took it, literally “turning the other cheek.” They had every right to continue, because Gaza did not abide by the cease-fire. Gaza continues to disregard it, but has had huge victory celebrations because they consider their damage to have won the war. They can fire at will now, and Israel has promised to not retaliate again!
Every rocket they fire, even if it does not land anywhere costs the Israeli government $30 million dollars to defend against by the Iron Dome system Israel had to develop. This cost is only for the single rocket replacement, it does not count all the other costs that go into running the system, building the system, and deploying it.
The money for the rockets in Gaza comes from us, and our generous bribes we pay every year to Gaza and all Arab countries to be at peace. Of course, our bribes have never gotten us even a small pittance of what we paid for, but we continue the payments anyway, upping it year after year too!
Gaza will put the exiles in Edom
Gaza will take the Jewish people from their beautiful cities and send them to the unlivable areas of Petra and the desert mountains of Edom.
Israel can actually turn the most desolate places into productive agricultural zones, producing the most highly prized produce in the world. Israel will be able to survive, better than anyone else, but the deportation of the Israelites will not be pleasant or done as a kindness. It will be something brokered for a great price in blood and money.
Messiah will end Gaza’s power, Amos 1:7
7 I will send down fire upon the wall of Gaza,
And it shall devour its fortresses;
Fire will break out on the walls
Fire will consume military units
Gaza will lose military & civil powers
There are two ways to purify a land. One is by flooding, which we see happening to America more and more each year, the other is by fire.
This last week a fire broke out in Massachusetts and killed over a dozen people. Did you look at the source of the fire? It was a brothel of prostitutes. God is taking action in places all across America, but are His people standing up to see they don’t get replaced with bigger places of filth?
Philistines will all die, Amos 1:8
8 And I will wipe out the inhabitants of Ashdod
And the sceptered ruler of Ashkelon;
And I will turn My hand against Ekron,
And the Philistines shall perish to the last man
—said the Lord God.
All in Ashdod will be exterminated
Israel miraculously took Ashdod from the Egyptians in 1948. The city there today was a carefully planned city, built on the unused sands outside the ancient city. Because of the careful planning, residents are not subject to the pollution from the industrial section, and it is very easy to get around Ashdod and into the neighborhoods.
Google Map of Ashdod
The city today is mostly Jewish and there is a large Orthodox Jewish community there. The city is important to Israel and 60% of the imports and exports are handled through Ashdod’s port.
According to the text, the city will not remain in Israel’s hands. As with anything successful in Israel, the Arabs will not rest till they have it, and of course as soon as they get it, they don’t maintain it, so it will be another dirty town afterwards. The Arabs also will not tolerate the Jewish residents and will sell off the people there to other countries, to make a quick riddance of them, and of course they will kill as many as they possibly can first.
“Ashdod” by fabrice on virtualtourist.com
By not looking to the Scriptures for guidance, the Nation of Israel is making a mistake building this wonderful city, because all investment will be lost, and it will soon be the place of horrors when the Arabs get it.
Ashkelon’s leaders will die
The Egyptians had a military post in the Arab city in the area then called Majdal. By the time the Israelites moved in there were less than a thousand residents in the area after the Egyptians abandoned it. While the Israelites decided what to do with the town, the population swelled to 2500 Arabs. The Israeli government offered those in the area generous inducements to leave and join their people in Gaza, and most accepted the offers.
By December 1948, Jewish people began to move into the area, and the name returned to its ancient and historical name of Ashkelon in 1953.

Of course, the Arabs have objected to the Jewish presence in the area and have tried all kinds of ways to force the Jewish people out, making all kinds of claims and types of warfare. In 2008 the town was being hit by rockets from the Gaza Strip, and over 100 people were killed and much damage done to the city. The town has continued to sustain death and injury by the Arabs and their intent to kill all Jewish people and to have the very beautiful and well organized city for themselves.

This prophecy indicates that the governing rulers of Gaza will set up their headquarters in Ashkelon soon, and God promises that they will be executed for their horrible actions in overstepping their bounds by attacking Israel and Israelites and treating them like animals.
All in Ekron will die
Ekron is a very interesting city. There is a great discussion as to where the original city was located and whether or not the one called that today by archaeologists is really the city. At best the location is a wild guess! However, the pinpointed location is not that important. There is a vibrant Jewish city by that name, if not at the exact location, it is very close to it, and its name today was chosen to carry on the ancient name of the city.
Today it is without doubt Kiryat Ekron. In 1948, the Arabs that were living in the town disbanded and abandoned the town. It was then settled by Bulgarian and Yemenite Jewish refugees expelled from those countries. The area has been an agricultural area of citrus and banana groves. It is the largest commercial center in Israel today.
All “Palestinians” will die
The Arabs that are swelling the areas around and in Israel are all there to stop Jewish presence and expansion. They are all declared and open enemies of Israel and all Jewish people everywhere.
God promised Israel the whole territory, not just the little sliver of land they have carved out to live inside. He has given it for all Israelites to live around His Holy Temple. Today the Jewish people are fighting to keep their land, and they keep giving away their cities to the Arabs as fast as they can build them and make them desirable places to live. The Arabs on the other hand, refuse to take care of anything they get, and soon have the cities in shambles.
The Scriptures of Amos and the other prophets suggest that one day soon we will see some really horrible massacres and land grabs by the Arabs that will be successful. We currently have a Federal Government that is very much Muslim and in sympathy with those who wish to see all Jewish people brutally massacred and all Americans to suffer the same fate. They are being allowed to move into our communities of America and continue their vendettas against us here in our homeland. They have already destroyed several important buildings and killed many people among us.
God has declared that there is a death penalty that is required by all those who join the Arabs and continue their cause and implement their philosophy of death.
We are here to stop this whole abandonment of God in America, and we must not only pray fervently for our country, we need to do whatever is possible within the confines of God’s Word and the law to confront the takeover of America by the forces of darkness and evil. Going overseas to hand deliver to the Muslims everything we can occupy is not the solution. We should be setting boundaries for the Muslims instead and cutting off our billions of foreign bribe money to them every year.
