Some Thoughts About GOD, His SON and My People Israel
Phillip Yancey: “You don’t know what it’s like out here!” Job was most brazen, flinging to God this accusation: “Do you have eyes of flesh? Do you see as a mortal sees?
Of the many reasons for Incarnation, surely one was to answer Job’s accusation: Do you have eyes of flesh?
…For a time, God did.
God is not mute: the Word spoke, not out of a whirlwind, but out of the human larynx of a Palestinian Jew”.
That Jew IS Jesus, The Messiah of Israel and the Christ of His Church.
The Jews are the topic of the entire Old and New Testaments:
Genesis to Deuteronomy: God chooses the Jewish nation as His eternal chosen people.
Joshua to Ester: God gives the Jewish nation their land. Land that is His to give, His alone to give!
Psalms to Malachi: God declares the past, present and future of the Jewish nation through His Promises to them.
Matthew to Jude: God uses the Jewish people as His Ambassadors to proclaim His anointed Messiah through the Jewish Apostles.
Revelation: God finishes His earthly plan for the Jewish nation and ushers them forth to take their pre-destined place in eternity.
The Nation of ISRAEL
No other nation on earth has been destroyed and scattered to the four corners of the globe, and then re-gathered as the focus of world attention.
No other nation declares by its re-emergence in time, that there is a God who deserves to be feared and loved and obeyed.
No other nation exists as a declaration to the world that in the records of her history, we find our roots and in the predictions of her prophets we find our future.
