Brother Burston you need to read ods Word a bit more carefully & consider them before you write these articles. For some time I have been shocked at some of the glaring untruths you have been reporting in these columns & surprised you have been allowed. May I point out that the crucifixion as practiced then was a Roman custom. The Hebrews did not mete out more than 40 lashes ever (historical fact), And MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL - it was our sins that nailed the Lord to the cross & His love for us that kept him there. Scripture ofcourse had to be fulfilled for our sakes. I, a gentile am forever thankful for Yisrael, the love of Abba the Immutable One, for all the prophets & Patriarchs who are incidentally all Hebrew. I wish gentiles had not forgotten that. fact in all the 20 centuries & still continuing when we mistreated all Jews. Why has everyone forgotten that Zion is Our dear Lords cause & Yerushallem His Holy Mount. When the Hasmashiach Nagid does return it will be very hard times for Yisrael, sadly unavoidable as again scripture will be fulfilled as Yakobs trouble. As for Yisraels current dilemma - the One who keeps Yisrael the apple of His eye neither sleeps nor slumbers. Take heart my brother, you are merely being refined through the furnace of affliction, refined as gold & silver.
