Biblical understanding about Israel
Over the years I have struggled to come to a new understanding of the Jewish people; Israel, Jerusalem, the Covenants, the Biblical concept of the Kingdom, the past, present and future from a Biblical perspective. I have published a trilogy with the titles ‘Why Israel?’, ‘Why Jerusalem?’ and ‘Why End Times?’ My daily devotional on the Book of Revelation, day-to-day, verse-by-verse, grew into a small commentary on the Book of Revelation! Now I would like to present my new book, ‘Israel - Covenants & Kingdom’. May the Lord use it as a contribution to bless the Church, comfort Israel, warn the nations and focus our eyes upon the Coming of the Lord and of His Kingdom! Thus, by a new self-understanding, the Church can meet her Lord without Jewish blood on her hands through repentance, and thereby fulfil her prophetic role to warn the nations.
His Kingdom is coming. Speaking about Israel, Jesus warns the nations: Matthew 25:31-36: “...When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, He will sit on His glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on His right and the goats on His left. Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father; take your inheritance, the Kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited Me in, I needed clothes and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was in prison and you came to visit Me’...”
Matthew 25:40-46: “... Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you did for Me...” One can almost see Him point His finger to all the Jews that stood around Him, listening to Him. “..Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave Me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite Me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe Me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after Me.’ They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help You?’ He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me.’ Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life...”
Israel is not a kind of interesting point on the agenda of the Church - and of the nations for that matter. Israel - and how we deal with her and how we think and talk about the Jewish people, how we bless them or how we curse them - is of vital importance in the eyes of God.
