ISRAEL – Blessed or Cursed?

God has not forgotten the Jewish people. They, like everyone else, still have the opportunity to believe the Gospel. The Gospel is God’s final word of love to all people. Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of God’s promises and blessings to Israel, but these promises and blessings now flow to all nations.

Many Christians are being taught by their church leaders to support national Israel in their dispute over land in the Mideast. This is not biblical, it is false teaching. The Christian’s mission in this world is to preach the Gospel of love and reconciliation to everyone, excluding no one. Like a physician we are to be healers, not destroyers of life. It’s not about the land in modern day Israel, and it’s not about politics, it’s about Jesus and it’s about the heart. It is impossible to condone injustice and or participate in killing and at the same time preach the Gospel. It is impossible. Remember the words written in Romans 2:29 “But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” Throughout the Old and New Testament there has always been a remnant, and so it is to this day.

THE PROMISE:

Genesis 12:3

And I WILL BLESS THEM THAT BLESS THEE, AND CURSE HIM THAT CURSETH THEE: AND IN THEE SHALL ALL FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED.

Genesis 22:18

And IN THY SEED SHALL ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

Genesis 26:4

And I will make THY SEED to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto THY SEED all these countries; and IN THY SEED SHALL ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED;

Genesis 28:14

And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and IN THY SEED SHALL ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED.

THE FULFILLMENT OF THE PROMISE:

Galatians 3:8

And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, PREACHED BEFORE THE GOSPEL UNTO ABRAHAM, SAYING, IN THEE SHALL ALL NATIONS BE BLESSED.

Galatians 3:14

That the BLESSING OF ABRAHAM MIGHT COME ON THE GENTILES THROUGH JESUS CHRIST; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Galatians 3:16

NOW TO ABRAHAM AND HIS SEED WERE THE PROMISES MADE. HE SAITH NOT, AND TO SEEDS, AS OF MANY, BUT AS OF ONE, AND TO THY SEED, WHICH IS CHRIST.

Galatians 3:28-29

There is NEITHER JEW NOR GREEK, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. AND IF YE BE CHRIST’S, THEN ARE YE ABRAHAM’S SEED, AND HEIRS ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE.

AND THIS IS THE CURSE:

Acts 3:23

And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

AND THIS IS THE TRUE BLESSING:

Acts 3:25-26

Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And IN THY SEED SHALL ALL THE KINDREDS OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED. UNTO YOU FIRST GOD, HAVING RAISED UP HIS SON JESUS, SENT HIM TO BLESS YOU, IN TURNING AWAY EVERY ONE OF YOU FROM HIS INIQUITIES.

Galatians 6:14-16

But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
