Repost: The Great Debate

There are more clips at the site.

While you can talk about the many complexities of Israel, there was one thing I did not hear in the debate clips I watched.  Maybe it’s there, but since they are not numbered, I may have missed some as I was unable to hear it live.

Since Israel is a vital topic, I will voice my opinion.

Israel is a totally different nation than any other nation.  Israel’s heritage goes back to its creation by God.  Abraham.  Isaac.  Jacob.  The 12 tribes.

Of course there have been problems.  The Old Testament is full of God sending prophets to correct the nation.  God is not ignorant of problems.

Nevertheless, Israel is still God’s nation and its land grant was given to Abraham.  It is in the Old Testament.

So keep reading for a minute for I have to take a dive into the waters of probability to hopefully open some thoughts for consideration.

You can dispute the  Bible all you want, but everyone who is a Christian has experienced the reality of Jesus Christ who is alive and has risen from the dead.

There are multiple prophecies that were fulfilled in the life of Christ.  (Keep reading, this will relate to Israel in a minute.)

A scientist and his class figured out the probability of just 8 of those prophecies about Jesus being fulfilled.  That would be 1 chance in 10 to the 32nd power, which is a 1 followed by 32 zeros.

That is for eight prophecies.  There are over 300.

In other words, if you don’t yet believe in Jesus, you are up against laws of probability where you are way outmatched.

Those same documents with those prophecies also describes the land grant to Israel and the whole history of Israel to the House of David, onto Mary, the mother of Jesus, (and Joseph as the foster-father), as Mary was divinely impregnated by the Holy Spirit,  and the lineage of both in various ways went back to the House of David.

The point being that once you start trying to unravel part of the scriptures, and ignore certain things, you are in grave danger.

The same Old Testament that prophesied the coming of Christ also explained God’s relationship with Israel.

There was a time when it was said that the sun never set on the British empire.

At the point Great Britain abandoned Israel (it refused to give Jews refuge), after that the empire shrunk.  It’s now a little island.  Yeah, there’s Deep State there, but definitely you no longer say that the sun never sets on the British empire.

Here are some of the posts of the curses for those who fight and abandon Israel.

Among others, note the one in Zechariah.

You don’t want to end up fighting God.   The day the United States abandons Israel, God will abandon us.

It’s that simple.

Ignore it if you want.  Say it is old-fashioned ignorance if you want.

But Israel needs to be approached differently than all other nations.

I’m not saying it’s perfect.  God Himself sent prophets to talk to Israel.

But let God sovereignly deal with them.  Don’t abandon Israel.

God has fought for them before at the time of Moses.  He plagued Egypt on behalf of Abraham’s wife.  He destroyed the Assyrian army.  He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.  And there are other instances in the Bible where God moved politically.

You do not want to end up on the wrong side of God.

If you think the United States has problems now, they will be even worse if the United States abandons Israel.

Again, consider probability at least.  Would you want to be a William Tell if you have

one chance in 1,00000000000000000000000000000000

in getting it right?

Well, the odds you are working against are worse than those.

Tread lightly and carefully and prayerfully.

Romans 10:9 that if you will confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart, one believes resulting in righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made resulting in salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in him will not be disappointed.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, and is rich to all who call on him. 13 For, “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
