Why Did God choose the Jews?

Post  servant on Wed 19 Mar 2008, 3:20 pm

Since before the world began, God, already had his own plan in mind, and that was for Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. But He needed people that would reject Him, so that He could be crucified and bring His
plan about. That is why He chose the Jews.

Jesus gave us a hint in Luke 6:32 where Jesus says: [quote]If you love those who love you what credit is that to you.

Jesus said,"Father forgive them, for they know not what they do. (Luke 23:24) [quote]
Jesus loved those who would reject him. Gods word will always come true, He will see to it. His plans and purpose will come to pass.

In Genesis 33:28 God said to Jacob, "Your name will no longer be Jacob but Israel, because you have struggled with God, and with men, and have overcome." God has made a covenant with the Patriarchs- Abraham Isaac and Jacob. Genesis 17:3 Abram fell facedown, and God said to him, as for me, this is my covenant with you. You will be the father of many nations. No longer will you be called Abram, your
name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you very fruitful, I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you. I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant
between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.

The whole land of Canaan, where you are now an alien, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you, and I will be their God. Then came the Covenant with Isaac, Genesis 17:19 God said, yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. And the Covenant with Jacob which is now called Israel.

Exodus 6:5 Moreover, I have heard the groaning of the Israelites, whom the Egyptians are enslaving, and I have remembered My Covenant. Romans 11:28 The Jews were picked out only because God wanted to show the world that He is faithful in keeping His promise, and that He will show mercy on the most rejected people of the world.

Israel some day will call out for Jesus; and they will realize that they have rejected their Messiah, and this can only take place when Jew and gentile become one new man in Messiah. This is already taking root as Im speaking, and the day you see this happen then the nations will know that there is a God in Israel.
