At Ben Gurion Airport

Recently I returned to Israel from Europe and had some time to spend at Ben Gurion airport for the car picking me up was late. I stood by the bronze statue of David Ben-Gurion at the main entrance of the spacious arrival hall and wondered how extremely busy the airport was. Announcements about arrivals were flashing on the board and an endless stream of people flowed through the gates and doors.

Look at all those lonely people... arriving from so many different countries in Europe, USA, Canada, Latin America, Africa, Russia, Asia, Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Micronesia, India, Canada ... different cultures, races, religions. Watching the crowd I told God of Israel "how could you possibly reach all these people with your message?"

I admit that it was rather stupid question for all I had to do was just to open your my eyes and look; these people are coming to Jerusalem from all the over the world. They have already been reached. Just think how many men in the world have the first name David, Dave, Daud or how many women are known as Mary or Miriam!

God has already reached the entire humanity through His chosen people - the method has worked. Admittedly it has taken its time from father Abraham on but now in 2012 the quota of gojjim, non-Jewish people, is approaching its predetermined limit and the time of the pagans is coming to end.

For the King of Israel has said
“And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them that are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let them that are in the midst of it depart out, and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

But woe unto them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days! For there shall be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations.

And Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled."
Luke 20:20-24 KJ21
