Mid Tribulation fleeing of Israel

Recommended Posts

Yes, but as you point out, it was called transjordan, not actually Palestine.

Palestine was regional name, not a national name.  The region was under control of various Arab nations of the area, but none of them were all that interested because the land was barren and wasted -until the Jewish people started returning and bringing the place  back to life. Now they all want it.

And the people there were called Palestinians, but not the people who currently call themselves Palestinians.

If you check the names in the Palestine Orchestra of the early 1900's for inastance, the names are almost exclusively Jewish. (I can't remember the full name right now).

There were Jews and Arabs and even "Christians" in the area all in small numbers compared to today.

The people currently claiming the name were not there.......

The funniest thing about the whole matter is that of the modern people in the land, the ones with the strongest continuous connection are in fact the Bedouin, but they don't want to claim it. They don't want to claim any national association. They want to be left alone to live as they please.

And of course the Bible says that God gave it to the Israelites as an everlasting covenant.

Correct. Palestine was just a regional name. The biblical name for the country is 'Israel,' not 'Palestine.' Among other aspects of the 'Palestine' issue, is that the countries that despise Israel, the religious denominations that are against Israel, and the preterists, and many others, are trying to take away the name, the country of Israel and replace it with the name 'Palestine.'

  We see, in the fulfillment of parts of Isaiah 19 that "the land of Judah" became a terror to the Egyptians.

  Now, since God finished giving His word to man before Hadrian kicked the Jews outta their land, the name "Palestine" doesn't appear in Scripture.

  Did a little digging on the name "Palestine". It comes from the Egyptian "peleset", C. 1150 BC, a name given to the area that included Philistia after those people had migrated from Caphtor. The Arabs called the area "Filastin".

  The Greex began calling the area "Palestaena" & the Romans got "Palestina" from that. This included the Philistines, but not ONLY them. There were Bedouins & other Ishmaelites among them.

  So, I was a little wrong. After the Neo-Assyrian empire conquered the Philistines, they mixed with those other people & lost their national ID, fulfilling the prophecy they'd vanish. But their posterity remains among the peoples of the land who call themselves "Palestinians" today. I believe that's why God mentioned them to Zechariah, their DNA is still present in many of today's Pals, including those who've betrayed their people to the Jews, & who will do so in the future, & will be honored by the Jews as God told Zechariah.

Still rubbish.

Those claiming the name "Palestinian" today are of mixed Arab heritage with no real connection to the land and no known heritage to the people called Philistines.

The overwhelming majority of them are of Jordanian heritage and Syrian heritage.

There is no known link today of anyone to the Philistines of the Bible, and until the Jews returning from the late 1800's through to the establishment of the modern nation of Israel no one wanted the land nor claimed the land except the Jews. 

The only link in any way is the name of the REGION not through any people now existing.

As I already mentioned, the Bedouin are in fact the current people that have the most continuous link and they do not claim philistine heritage and they do not claim the land for themselves. The land was given to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob in the Bible of course.

No matter what sort of false facts you want to make up, you cannot link the land to any group now calling themselves "Palestinian", and you cannot make a solid link to of any people today with the Philistines.

And I will point out to you that the Philistines are not even of Arab heritage, but were a sea ranging people until the hit the shores of Israel. No one really even knows their full heritage before that, but they are not as far as anyone knows any relation to Abraham and his children.

Revelation 12:6

6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

 

Israel will flee at the middle of the tribulation.
