Israel The Apple Of God's Eye - Poem by Patricia Kelley
Israel you're watched by God's protective eyes.
Even though your country isn't so wise,
You still wait for the coming of your Messiah.
Israel, He has already arrived.
You refused to believe in the true Messiah.
Now your country pays the ultimate price.
You were first warned by the prophet Isaiah.
You were warned again, by the weeping prophet Jeremiah.
Your country is protected, by your own, military concertina wire.
The ancient prophets grow tired.
Your ancient olive trees stand admired.
Your traveled roads, by Christian tourist, we, so admire.
But, Heaven's Angels' try cutting through with blazing swords, through strong concertina wire to reach you.
They stand frustrated and delayed.
Heaven's Angels' cry, if only, Israel believed.
In the true Messiah, your lands would not only flourish, but you would live in peace.
The Messiah cries out with His embedded thorns still bleeding.
Israel, I still love you, I wait for the day when I ride through the sealed Golden Gate to Damascus.
You will then see your true Messiah, my face.
Humbly ask us.
Is it too late to believe, no, I will say, you won the finished race!
Israel has always been, the Apple of God's eyes!
