Israel is blessing to all nations

Post  Waqar Daniel on Sun 04 Jan 2009, 3:38 pm

Blessing
I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you. (Genesis 12:2-3 Amplified version)

This blessing is for
Know and understand that it is [really] the people [who live] by faith who are [the true] sons of Abraham. (Galatians 3:7 Amplified version)

Because all of you are one in the Messiah Jesus, a person is no longer a Jew or a Greek, a slave or a free person, a male or a female. (Galatians 3:8 Amplified version)

In Christ everyone is equal and no one is superior. Jews are not superior to Christians because they call Jesus a Blasphemer. They rejected Him and crucified Him and to this day they do not believe in Jesus as Messiah.

However, at the same time, we cannot curse Israel because it was made by God Himself.

For he was [waiting expectantly and confidently] looking forward to the city which has fixed and firm foundations, whose Architect and Builder is God. (Hebrews 11:10 Amplified version)

Paul makes it clear

Now the promises (covenants, agreements) were decreed and made to Abraham and his Seed (his Offspring, his Heir). He [God] does not say, And to seeds (descendants, heirs), as if referring to many persons, but, And to your Seed (your Descendant, your Heir), obviously referring to one individual, Who is [none other than] Christ (the Messiah). (Galatians 3:16)

Therefore as the verse says anyone who curses Jesus will be cursed by Heavenly Father and anyone who blesses Jesus will be blessed by Heavenly Father.

but whoever doesnot believe (in Jesus) is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the Son of God. (John 3:18)

To conclude I have quoted John 3:18 and it makes it very clear that anyone (Jew, Christian or any human being) who does not have Jesus is condemned. Can we challenge the words of Jesus?

Yes Daniel, I quite agree, Jews do not go to heaven just because they are Jews. If they do not believe in our Lord Jesus, and die in that state, they will go to Hell the same as a Gentile who does not believe.
But Israel as a nation and the Jewish people are blessed above all other nations and held in High Honor in the court of God. No other nation in history has regained its ancient language and culture. God brought back His people in 1948 just as he has promised he would do in the prophecies concerning Israel. Israel is special in Gods mind. As far as God is concerned, Israel is the center of the universe, and his Jewish People are his prized possession and are the apple of His eye. God Bless Israel!!!
