Israel has always
been highly misunderstood, from times past up until this day.
The little that I will write will be as a drop in a bucket,
but I feel I should state what I think of the Jews. The articles
will be Biblically based.
Israel’s SIX Day War
Jeremiah 31:37 Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD. (KJV)
Jeremiah 33:24-26 Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying, The two families which the LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before them.
25 Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; 26 Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them. (KJV)
Jeremiah 46:28 Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the LORD: for I am with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished. (KJV)
Romans 11:26-29 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. 28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. 29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. (KJV) . . . Some say “All Israel will be saved” means that the majority of Jews in the last generation before Christ’s return will turn to Christ for salvation, while others say that “all Israel” means Israel as a whole will have a role in Christ’s kingdom. Their identity as a people will not be discarded. God chose the nation of Israel, and He has never rejected it.
Paul does NOT mean that every Jew will be saved. In Elijah’s day only a remnant was saved; in David’s day only a remnant was saved; in Paul’s day only a remnant was saved; in today’s time only a remnant is saved and in the Great Tribulation there will be just a remnant saved. ALL of the remnant will be saved. Isaiah 59:20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord. [KJV] . . . The Lord says to His people, “I will come to Jerusalem to defend you and to save all of you that turn from your sins.” This message is to every individual in the nation Israel! They must “turn from their transgression” and TO the Redeemer (the Messiah, the Christ). It is exactly the same way we Gentiles receive salvation. There is but ONE God. There is NOT one God for the Jews and another for the Gentiles. We ALL have the same God!
Because the Jews reject the Good News, they are God’s enemies for the sake of us Gentiles. But because of God’s choice (election), they are His friends because of their ancestors. God never changes His mind about whom He chooses and blesses. The privileges and invitation of God given to Israel can never be withdrawn.
Remnant: (Isa.1:9; 10:20-22; 11:10-12,16; 46:3; Jer.23:3; 31:7; 39:9; 40:11; Eze.6:8-10; Joel 2:32; Mic.2:12; 5:3-8; Zep.2:7-9; Zec.8:6-12; Rom.9:29; 11:5; Rev.12:17).
On May 28, 1967, the United Arab Republic planned to destroy Israel. When the war broke out on June 5, the United Arab Republic as joined by Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Algeria, Sudan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Morocco. The attempt to drive Israel into the sea, did NOT succeed. Israel was the undisputed victor!
Now . . . a question??? Do you think that tiny Israel did this all on her own? I certainly do NOT think so! I know for a fact that she did NOT! She had divine assistance!
Jeremiah 30:16-17 Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey. 17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after. (KJV)
I believe that the Presence of God was with Israel during that time, just as I believe that NO nation will ever destroy Israel!
And I also believe that there shall be further fulfillment of Israel’s claim to the land when it is permanently settled by the Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to reign as King!
I think that
hatred of the Jews is absolutely wrong!
Genesis 12:3 And
I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth
thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. [KJV]
God CHOSE the
nation of Israel, who are we to hate and/or curse them? Can
we go up against God in ANY matter? We are to love them because
God loves them. Jesus was a Jew!
Exodus 6:7 And
I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a
God: and ye shall know that I am the Lord your God, which
bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. [KJV]
Numbers 23:9 For
from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I
behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not
be reckoned among the nations. [KJV]
Deut. 4:37 And
because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed
after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty
power out of Egypt; [KJV]
2 Samuel 7:23 And
what one nation in the earth is like thy people, even like
Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and
to make him a name, and to do for you great things and terrible,
for thy land, before thy people, which thou redeemedst to
thee from Egypt, from the nations and their gods? [KJV]
Isaiah 43:1 But
now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he
that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed
thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. [KJV]
Isaiah 45:4 For
Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even
called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou
hast not known me. [KJV]
Exodus 19:5 Now
therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant,
then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people:
for all the earth is mine: [KJV]
Psalm 135:4 For
the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his
peculiar treasure. [KJV]
by the Lord God
Deut. 7:6-7 For
thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy
God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself,
above all people that are upon the face of the earth. 
The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because
ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest
of all people: [KJV]
Deut. 14:2 for
thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God, and the Lord
hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above
all the nations that are upon the earth. [KJV]
Above ALL Nations
Deut. 26:19 And
to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in
praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be
an holy people unto the Lord thy God, as he hath spoken. [KJV]
Deut. 28:1 And
it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto
the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his
commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord
thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
[KJV] IF Israel would obey the Lord God, consider just what
she would be, what she could be!
Deut. 28:13 And
the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou
shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that
thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which
I command thee this day, to observe and to do them: [KJV]
1 Samuel 12:22 For
the Lord will not forsake his people for his great name's
sake: because it hath pleased the Lord to make you his people. [KJV]
Psalm 29:11 The
Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless
his people with peace. [KJV]
like a Flock
Psalm 78:52 But
made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them
in the wilderness like a flock. [KJV]
Psalm 100:3 Know
ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and
not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his
Apple of His Eye
Deut. 32:10 He
found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness;
he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple
of his eye. [KJV]
Zech. 2:8 For
thus saith the Lord of hosts; After the glory hath he sent
me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth
you toucheth the apple of his eye. [KJV] Anyone who messes with Israel,
is in trouble with God.
