Much of her budget has had to be spent on defence and the consequence? Devastating.
The economy has suffered, the social welfare budget decimated and patient care poor due to budget cuts. The withdrawal from gaza and terrorist attacks and countries outside attacking and threatening has left people in all places in Israel living as I do not want.
Hospital budgets for the elderly, ill, terminally ill and all needing care are struggling to meet sometimes even the most basic of needs. This is because of a 'severe budgetary deficit'. They need increased budgets to provide for care needs, mobility needs and even for medicines.
People have experienced the horror of terror attacks and one man lost his children in a random bomb attack on a bus and he says I am dead inside'. Children left orphaned and people with amputations and children and adults alike suffering from the menace of threat and attack. People grieving and left in desperate poverty due to wounds - physical and emotional and psychological. The hospitals and other care providers rely on charities for equipment including that for emergency use for babies to the elderly.
There have been roadside shootings and who would like their own mother or father to be exposed to this?
People going about their daily business - kids going to school, people going to work and going shopping LIVE with this around them! This is life in Jerusalem and all over Israel.
In Palestine, again, it is the innocent people who suffered. When the government there broke the peace treaties; the jews were forced to put in place rigid security checks. The consequence? Unemployment in Palestine rose from 10% to 70% and the results? Absolute poverty in housing, food, medical treatment. Hunger is a daily curse. In this day and age this is just not on. Furthermore, corruption in leadership corruption there means grants and monies for the people have been stolen and pocketed by the wicked. What has possessed them to turn from conscience from what their own people are going through? It is not God. Self and satan. The people are DESPERATE and need help, support and prayer and change please, Christ. They should know that others care, I care, and I am disgusted at the humans behind this. They are selfish, greedy, corrupt, hard hearted and damned if they continue and it is deserved.
The Israeli Defence Force are also in dire need. These are young men and women sacrificing years of their life to protect and defend their homeland. Their facilities are basic and lacking in basic provision in many areas. Many of the young soldiers have volunteered from outside Israel and so living there without their family. Many come from abusive and very poor homes and need the basics and also luxuries and support and help and encouragement. It was very sad to find out that many felt 'too ashamed' to tell their officers about their homes and lives. How sad is that when they are placing their life in danger to defend others and are in need of practical and psychological support. They need much improved living quarters but the budgets cannot currently provide for.
The consequence of cursing and people cursing their own people by denying them means every day that peoples' lives are overshadowed by struggle and misery. This is the Holy Land!
The prayer for Thursday 23rd January applies to the people causing this grief and sadness, pain and persecution, anxiety and depression and you will be held accountable for it and punished unless you repent now and return your ill gotten gains.
Whether you, personally, have chosen to do dab and wicked deeds and persecute people in Israel or ANY country; then you have no excuse. The Lord might hear you attempt to justify your actions by saying 'it was just the way of the world!"' and he will say 'No! It was the way of your wicked personal world. Away from me you evildoer!'. If you have shown no mercy to others; He won't show you any. You won't receive pity either. It doesn't give the Lord delight to sentence you, but it will be deserved. The Lord will purge the earth of evildoers because the new Kingdom has no place nor want of them. Tough fact from the Trinity.
The Lord God watches over Israel and His people (also all over the world). If you have broken His covenants without excuse - bad is bad, wrong is wrong, evil is evil in any book then you will experience such wrath and rage that it might just take your breath away. I myself have no pity either for those who have refused to stop harming, abusing, exploiting and making others suffer. The Lord will turn His blessed face from you as you have turned yours away from decency, morality, civility and inegrity.
Lord, God. comfort, comfort Your people please. Speak tenderly to Jews and gentiles alike. Give them gentle grace and higher hope that, as it is written, they will be restored, fed and treated fairly and soon. Remove their fear and show them Your mighty presence by wonders and signs and support. rescue them please, Lord. Thank You and amen.
