Pause... and Consider By Pastor Rob Adams Palestine Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father 's house, unto a land that I will show thee. (Genesis 12:1) Have you looked at a map of Israel lately? Notice how small that country is (about the size of New Jersey), and all the nations that surround it: Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt; and a little further away, Iraq and Libya. Do you realize that some of these countries do not have Israel on the maps in their children's school- books? Many refuse to admit that the State of Israel even exists. Recently the Palestinian Authority presented itself before the United Nations, asking that Palestine be recog- nized as a separate nation. Yet the idea of a 'Palestinian people' is a misnomer. This is a very complicated histori- cal tale, but I will do my best to simplify. The land of Israel, that is sometimes referred to today as Palestine, was originally the land of Canaan in the time of Abraham. God gave that piece of land to Abraham and his descendants for an eternal inheritance (Genesis 12:1-3). It wasn't, and has never been, promised to the Arabs, nor did they live there in great numbers until modern times. The early inhabitants of the land were not called Palestinians, but were the Kenites, Amorites, Perizites, Jebusites, etc. When the Israelites returned to the land after 400 years of enslavement in Egypt, they drove out these peoples under God's direction and resettled the land that He had given them. How and when did the land become known as Palestine? This occurred following the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. The Romans tried to build a temple to Jupiter on the Jewish temple mount. This understandably angered the Jewish people and they revolted. This led to a large slaughter of Jews. In anger, the Roman conquerors renamed the Israel's land the Province of SyriaPalestine, after Israel's ancient enemies, the Philistines. From that day forward the land has been known as Palestine and its residents Palestinians. Who were these residents of Palestine? Jews of coursel Chase them away and they will return to their land. During WW II Britain had a volunteer brigade made up of Jewish men known as the Palestine Brigade. There was a Jewish newspaper, the Palestine Post, and a Jewish orches- tra, the Palestinian Symphony Orchestra. As late as the 1950s the Arabs would have nothing to do with the name Palestine, claiming that it was an invention of the Zionists. But in 1964 the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) was formed with the goal of driving the Jews into the sea, and all of a sudden the term Palestine was used to denote Arab peoples. Who are these people whom the world today calls Palestinians? They or their ancestors are a mixed race from the neighboring Arab countries of Israel. Can they claim to be descendants of the original Philistines? There is no connection whatever, and even if there, Wzlte, the Philistines were not native to the land of Canaan, but were invaders from across the Mediterranean Sea. The 'Palestinian' people are merely a pawn in the larger end-game of the destruction and elimination of the State and the people of Israel. They would not need their own land if they would merely return to the nations from which they came. Could we be living in the end of days? Is the trumpet about to sound? Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. They shall prosper that love thee (Psalm 122:6).

The Minnesota Department of Commerce administers the LIHEAP pro- gram in parmership with 36 local service providers throughout the state. It is fed- erally funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The program helps customers earning less than 50 percent of the state's median income ($43,050 for a family of four) obtain grant money to help pay their heating bills. The average annual EAP grant per household is about $400. Households with seniors, disabled residents and children are especially encouraged to apply.

I I I "Many Minnesota families struggle financially with heating costs in the winter," said Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman. "EAP provides critical assistance during the winter months to those who need it most, when they need it most." The Minnesota Department of Commerce also administers the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The program pro- vides cost-effective conser- vation measures to save ener- gy costs for low income households. Customers who meet the income guidelines for EAP may be eligible for Weatherization. Both home- owners and renters may apply for Weatherization. Other forms of assistance may be available through county social service pro- grams, community based organizations and non-profit agencies such as the Salvation Army's Heat Share. The Minnesota Department of Commerce Energy Information Center provides a wide range of energy saving information that every household can use to help control their heating costs. Energy saving recom- mendations include: * Seal attic bypasses. The Attic Bypass Guide <http:// nalDocs/Commerce/Attic Bypasses_ 110602012529_ AtticBypass.pdf> from the Energy Information Center will help you locate and fix leaks inside your home that allow heated air to escape into the attic. * Turn down your thermo- stat to 65 while at home and 55 or 60 when away or asleep. * Replace your old furnace with a new, efficient model. Look for the ENERGY STAR label on all new appli- ances. * Replace or clean furnace filters monthly during the heating season. *Place window film on the interior of the leakiest win- dows in your home. * Install a carbon monox- ide alarm. * Call your utility about having a home energy audit and ask about a budget plan to spread out your heating costs over several months. * Keep radiators and duct registers clean. * Call, write or email for our Low Cost-No Cost Home Energy Guides that contain many ways to help control energy costs all year long.
