Blessed are the peace makers? But who are they and why are these so significant? It is important that these peace makers be portrayed as martyrs for the cause of PEACE.
Their presence at this sanctified table is an indication that although they have been martyred for the cause, PEACE is still the prudent and rational route that we should follow.
One wonders what does this banquet portend? That they have tried in their terrestial lives to secure peace in their troubled region is a well known fact, once they are identified. However, their lead has not produced a lasting peace and it is imperative that we follow their lead, inspite of their personal sacrifices. But as they are about to sign the PEACE PROTOCOL, ushered by their respective angelic matriachs, they feel the divine presence of one who had preceded them in a holy quest for Peace. They see the writing on the Peace document, but do they recognize their guest? Does his signature reveal his identity?
If not, there are ominous premonitions if we do not heed the warning. The signs are there to be recognized and they portend catastrophies of unspeakable horror.
WHO ARE THESE MEN AND ABOUT WHAT DO THEY WARN US?
They have been there before.
One see the martyred leaders of Israel and Egypt, Yitzak Rabin and Anwar el Sadat seated at the peace table. They have paid the ultimate price and personal sacrifice for peace and yet they encourage us to follow their lead. Why? Their matriachs ( Sarah and Hagar) are in pain; the pain of their bleeding wombs and implore them to cease. In the countenance of their divine guest, they see the signs of ARMAGEDDON They also see the signs on the table and the rewards of Peace-at-hand. Who is theirDIVINE GUEST
His name is too holy to mention....
