I truly believe there is a,plan God has always had for His people<quoted text>
I have been in the cheering section of the Jewish people from my
I will continue to love them till my last breath.
My wife... at times ... accuses me of being Jewish..
They will YET come forth in VICTORY ..
FOR THEY HAVE GOD'S PROMISE..
Zec 12:7 The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.
Zec 12:8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.
Zec 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
NOTE THEY ULTIMATELY WILL ACCEPT JESUS AS THEIR MESSIAH..
Zec 12:10 ==> And I will pour upon the house of David, and
upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
the spirit of grace and of supplications: and
==>they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and
they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and
shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
We are adopted ..grafted into Abraham's descendants .
I have never understood the whole idea that the Jews killed Jesus mentality that existed (or still dies for some )
I know the temple leaders were Jewish ..But even before I learned
A,lot about this,I thought of them as apart from the majority of the Jewish people...
I know now this has been an excuse for persecution and confiscation and the holocaust ..
Yes,Jews,called for His death ..But many Jews accepted Him as,Lord...including the apostles ..
Yes the Romans,did the actual crucifixion.....But Jesus came at a time when this was so...
ALL this WAS ALLOWED AND KNOWN beforehand ..in fact the sacrifice was,the ultimate sacrifice planned ...
I do believe as,I said He has a plan for faithful Jews who worship Yahweh ..who have gone before Messiah comes ...it's,only speculation ..
Maybe ABRAHAMS BOSOM ..or something else.
We know when MESSIAH comes. Every KNEEe shall bow...we know there will be before this the 144thousand believers ...JEWISH??
ONLY GOD KNOWS..however ABRAHAM was promised those who bless you will be blessed ..if they curse you they will be cursed.
This country has been bless mightily ..we have always supported Israel..not sure where we are going now ..we had best look to History ..
The thing is those who have cursed and persecuted the Jews,have much to answer for with God ...another reason I believe God allowed the Reformation ...
And those who fled to establish this country ..
Just my take on the whole thing :)
