Why are the Jews the chosen people?
Today's people have little knowledge of what the Bible really is talking about and instead of searching for the truth, they will listen to a growing cluster of more popular prejudices hearsay, all that have been created by false experts. At the risk of not falling into any of the ditches, I am in constant search for understanding of even small prophecies in the Bible, and then I ask God to help me put the new pieces together in as logically and trustworthy picture as it is now possible to do, but even my image can sometimes be hazy. The Bible tells us that the word should be proven with another word of God, and I have also noticed that even certain events in the Bible seems to be repeated.
Heb 1:5 – 13 For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”? Or again, “I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son”? And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God's angels worship him.” Of the angels he says, “He makes his angels winds, and his ministers a flame of fire.” But of the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.” And, “You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands; they will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment, like a robe you will roll them up, like a garment they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will have no end.” And to which of the angels has he ever said, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?
Heb 2: 5-8 For it was not to angels that God subjected the world to come, of which we are speaking. It has been testified somewhere, “What is man, that you are mindful of him, or the Son of man, that you care for him? You made Him (Jesus) for a little while lower than the angels; you have crowned him with glory and honor, putting everything in subjection under his feet.”
Word to notice: The Father tells us that; Firstborn … Your Throne, o, God, that Jesus is both God and Son om man. This means that God gave birth to the Son and through the Son all things are created. Roll them up, like a garment they will be changed, = When this world has served its purpose it will then be discharged and replaced with a new world.
Creation. Gen 1:1 “In the beginning, God (Elohim = Father and Son) created heaven and earth.” And God wanted the people to multiply and fulfill the earth, and as children of God (sons and daughters) they could, by their own free will and in love, seek for a personal fellowship with God. Contrary to how the animals were created, alive and fully grown, the Son took up a lump of clay and shaped it like a grown man. When this was done the Father blew in air and Adam was alive. (God’s DNA?) After all of the creations was done, God saw it was good. he next thing God did was to plant a beautiful garden, and they filled it with chosen plants from all over the earth and then they brought Adam to Eden. Adam's first duty was naming all that he saw, but God had also in mind a different chore for the coming people, namely that they should take up the work of the fallen Lucifer and then fill the heavens with praises. Something that Satan in his jealousy could not allow to happen, and that is why we today can both see and hear all kinds of music that is now pouring out into the world, both good and bad, which in itself Satan has made it a kind of battle for people's souls.
Adam and Eve. One day, Adam was looking rather sad and the Father (recognized the feeling) said to his Son; "It is not good for Adam to be alone, let us make for him a soul-partner, a woman, whom can walk by his side." And the Son took out a rib bone, the one closest to Adam's heart, and so Eve was born, coming out of and then created, and the two became as one, in a two-in-one-unity, just as the Father and the Son are, with the Holy Spirit, a Trinity. God is love and true love means you have to let go of your control, and God cannot use any force on humans to do his biddings and make us love Him, even though He is God Almighty. This Gods great love and free will would one day in the future carry a high price for them both to pay, for sooner or later one human would fall, just as Lucifer did together with 1/3 of the angels who adored him, because he repeatedly tries to defy God in shaping the world in his own way.
Ezekiel 28:12 – 16 “You (Lucifer) was a pattern of perfection, full of wisdom and complete in beauty. With gold, your tambourines and flutes were ornate, formed the day you were created. You were a highly productive cherub, and I (God) had put you on the Holy Mountain of God (to compose and fill the heavens with all kinds of pleasant music). You were perfect on all your ways from the day you were created, until evil was found with you. Through your actions you were filled with violence, (spiteful pride) and you sinned.” Lucifer, the creator of all music, fell in vanity because he wanted to be equal to God and have his own throne, and instead for praising God the Almighty he began to make music for his own glory. The fallen Satan invented then in counterattack the tactic to divide and defeat. Much like Hitler in his own boycott, that is to say all Israel’s books, artefact and history are false, and to forbid all culture and social contact with other people. Just like todays BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment, Sanction), with only one difference, they do not burn Israelis at and books. Not yet, but the BDS movement works to end international support for Israel's oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law. The Serpent deceived Eve to eat of the forbidden fruit, but instead of getting only Eve rejected, as Satan had hoped for, Adam chose to eat of the fruit, accept God’s judgement and together with his beloved Eve leave Eden. And for Adams choice to stand by the women he loved, did in fact pleased God that Adam’s choice was true love. Because Satan had in his plan try to separate Adam and Eve, and now he failed again.
Satan's next step was to demolish the creation by letting fallen Angels (demons) mate with both women and animals, and thus make offspring that both had strange bodies and supernatural powers, but in they turn attracted people to idolized them and forget Adam's old tales of Gods greatness.
After 1600 years (or 2400 BC) did God decided that the human’s DNA was now so damaged that it was now enough, and God let a Flood annihilate all life on Earth, except for eight people and all the animals that were safely stored onboard Noah's Ark. God had brought together young animals, two by two, so that all species could survive. One might wonder why God did do anything about this problem a long time before the flood, but Satan (the prosecutor) was cunning in his challenging of the whole creation and he targeting God's love and his belief that people of free will would wishes to love God Almighty. And bound to the rule of love and free will, God had to keep a straight face in Satan's nasty games, well aware of that in the agreement there was a last date when justice would rule. However, Satan could, within certain limits, violate many of Gods rules, and he did so at many times. Compare God’s and Israel's dilemma in the Middle East War where Hamas in their tactics uses humans, children, as shields, while Israel must hold back their counter-attacks as not to risk killing any innocent Palestinians. (Read about how Satan tested God in the book of Job and when he tempted Jesus.)
After the flood the human race grew in numbers and now their pride was to build the Tower of Babel. To stop their new idea, God chose now to divide people’s language and to avoid opened conflict between them they had to spread out all over the earth. But Satan let the people find figurines of old demon idols and both priest and kings learned how to use the new idolatry in their purpose to achieve more power for themselves. To counter idolatry’s domination God sought out and found among all the true believers on earth one person whom was close to His heart. Although Melchizedek was living in Salem, God let his choice fall upon Abraham from the city of Ur. But the choice could have been a person from any country, such as Sweden, Portugal or Kenya, and then the people of these countries would have become the whole world's hate object, for the source of all hatred to Jewish and Christians God is in nature demonic and was born inside Satan. And all people throughout all ages who screams out their hatred for Israel, they are marionettes dancing in Satan's hand.
The first anti-Jew incident was in the city of Susan. Old Testament’s book of Ester, tell us how Haman became jealous of Mordechai, but instead to take out his disappointment on this one Jew, he turned his hatred on all the Jews living in captivity in Babylon. But queen Ester unveiled his plot and the king gave now all the Jews the right to self-defense, hit back, and on that day, now known as Purim feast, they won a great victory over their enemies.
Satan hates all humans, and he makes no difference between Jews and the Gentiles, for the essence of his hate is his own pride in being the greatest music composer ever, a position that belonged only to him, and to no one else. But God has now promised Satan’s old throne on high shall belong to all of Gods children, for God do love our joyful praises! If we, humans, had been created just like any other animal, Satan would have lost his interest in us, for the animals do not have our gift, that we can with only a flute and a tambourine make wonderful rhythmic music in many melodies. But we can make more than just inspiring music and Satan hates us all for our many skills.
The following Bible verses gives us an explanation as to why God, Father and Son, deliberately gives all the humans difficult tests of belief, and it is for our trust in God will be rewarded so much greater one day, than a daily dull life as being just an animal. And if this was the plan that Father and Son come up with in the Beginning of the creation, and that they did not spare themselves and their feelings of comfort in the struggle against evil? Then, how can we then accuse God over the toils of daily living that are placed upon our shoulders? Our life is short and one day it all will be clear to us why, but until then keep your heart singing.
Paul's letter to the Corinth, but this letter can also apply on all of us.
2 Cor 4:4 “… for this god of the world (Satan) has blinded the understanding of those who do not believe, lest they see the light of the Gospel of the Glory of Christ, the image of God.”
2 Cor 6:16-18 “We are the temples of the Living God, for God has said: I will dwell and walk among them, and be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore, saith the Lord: Pull away from them, and separate yourselves from them (non-believers). Then I will receive you, and I will be your Father, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord, Almighty.”
2 Cor 5:17-21 “The one who is in Christ is thus a new creation, the old is past, something new has come. I ask you on behalf of Christ: let you reconcile with God. He (Jesus) who did not know what sin was, he made God one with sin for our sake, that through him we would become one with the righteousness of God.”
By the life and promises to the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel), God wants to show the world whom He really is, in contrary to all dead idols made of gold, wood and stone, all of them whom require of us gifts, blind obedience and has no tolerance for disagreement. God says, however, that we shall examine all the prophecies carefully to see what is the truth. Satan's will now try to make us go wrong by saying lies like: "It was the Jews that killed Jesus, therefore are all of their Gods blessings gone, and now the Christians are the new promised people of the Bible." And so, did Satan lure the churches in West to backtalk the Jews on all fronts, mostly because then their prophecies would be lost. The churches of West had opposed the truth of God for such a long time and not even in the year 1948 did the church see the miracle unfold before their eyes when the Jews returned to proclaim the state of Israel. Nor can these priests see how God has, during the last 70 years, kept his promise and protective hand over the Jews and their land. In the desert south of Israel, they found a few years ago great lakes underneath the sand. The water was not fit to drink, but all plants just loves it and Gods old promise that the desert will one day bloom is now a reality. God did not choose the Jews for they were better than other peoples, in fact they were most of time even worse, but Gods did this to show his authority and Almightiness, that He can and will to keep all of his promises, otherwise God is no better than Satan, a liar.
Israel vs Palestine. Before the birth of Jesus, the whole land of Israel was occupied by the Romans, (Palestine is a Roman word for Philistine) and at this time the country was suitable for farming according to satellite pictures that have showed remnants of cities, water basin and great grain fields that could support many people, even the great Rome. But when Titus in the year 70 AD let burn Jerusalem and the temple, and the Jews was dispersed all over the earth and their land begun slowly to dried up when God's Blessings left the country, and Roman territory of Palestine became a wasteland. In the year of 1867 did Mark Twain travelled throughout the whole country and he found out that Gods Land was now empty and the rich inhabitants, with no heart for the country, had left the land over to the poor. Even the cactus had fled from this part of Muslims Ottoman’s Empire, but never the Jews, whom had survived years of many wars and occupations by greeting each other with the hope; “See you next time in Jerusalem.” The Jews have returned to Israel every time they were driven out, and at the year 1918, the last days of Ottoman Empire in Palestine, the world decided in 1920 that now is the time for the Jews to get their old land back. If Mark Twain 100 years later could return to Israel, he would have been very surprised to see that Jerusalem once again was the capital of Israel, and that the whole countryside was now blooming, but he wouldn’t be at least surprised to hear how the whole world were still squabbling over whom the land really did belong to. North of Jerusalem, from a satellite view, you can see how God’s finger have in the mountain massif written: J H V H (Jehovah), as if He wants to tell us all this simple truth that the whole land belongs to God and to his people. But the prophecies are also talking about a growing threat against Israel and how Israel's neighbors are ganging up to stop God's will. xxx
Ezekiel 29:9 – 12 “The land of Egypt shall be laid wasted ... wherefore you said that: The Nile river is mine, I have done it myself. See ... I (God) will make the land of Egypt a wasteland, into a devastated country, right up to the border of the Nubians (Assuan Dam in southern Egypt). No man's foot shall go forth there and no foot of any animal. The country shall be uninhabited for forty years.”
When Josef in 1720 BC was taken as a slave to Egypt, he ended up in prison. But Josef was lifted up, as a true interpreter of dreams, and placed on a throne as the right hand of Pharaoh. After the dream of seven good and seven evil years (an El Niño phenomenon), Pharaoh asked Josef how he best should handle the next time of dry season, and Josef suggested that if Pharaoh let dig a waterway west of the Nile, and thus create a string of lakes, then pharaoh could at dry times halt the waterflow to return back to the Nile, making for Egypt well needed water reservoirs. Today this lake system is still known as Bahr Jusef, the canal of Josef, but after the building of Assuan Dam and a lack of maintenance the canals are now partly overgrown. When Pharaoh in his pride said that the Nile is mine, I have done it myself, he did not lie, but he should also has recognized that it was God whom created the Nile in the beginning. And this canal is today a living proof that Josef and the Jews did stay for a very long time in Egypt, despite what Arafat falsified fact of history tells us.
Zephaniah 2:4 – 6 “Gaza will be abandoned and Ashkelon transformed into a wasteland. Woe to you who live on the land stretch along the sea, you of Crete people! The word of the Lord is against you, Canaan, you Philistines land. I will ruin you so that non-more will live there. The land stretch along the sea will become pastures, where the shepherds have their wells and the sheep their pens.”
The fate of Egypt and Gaza seem to coincide with each other at that same day when a large and for longtime awaited Earthquake gets the Assuan Dam to fall and its onrushing inland tsunami overflows and makes the Nile delta to the marshland so that all the armies from Africa have sail by sea to reach Lebanon. The hundreds of Hamas tunnels along Gaza border, that begins at the coastline and then goes inlands, have in digging emptied the coastal strip of all its fresh groundwater, and should the tsunami run up along the coastline and reach Rafah City, then the low coastline and its tunnels will be flooded one by one with salt sea-water.
Joel 3:1 For behold, in those days and at that time, when I put an end to Judas and the captivity of Jerusalem, I will gather all the heathens together and bring them down into the valley of Josefa. (Armageddon). There I will put them to account for what they have done to Israel, my own people, which they scattered among the nations. They have cut my country and thrown lots of my people. You, Tyros and Sidon, and you, philistines all areas – what do you want me? Do you have anything to claim revenge for? If you want to inflict something evil, I shall immediately let it affect yourselves.
When Joshua went into the land of Canaan all people living there knew that when the Jews came in the name of their God, they would win because their God had told them that all of Canaan belonged to Him and will belong to the Jews. They had now two choices, either to leave the land or to die fighting. During the 400 years when the Jews was in Egypt, Satan had filled Canaan’s land with, tall grown battle-ready people, all most willing to defend themselves and die for their god Baal, that in belief craved offering of children, so the fight was not only over the land, but it was also a spiritual war of liberating Gods land from Satan’s occupation.
When UN wants to cut Israel into two parts it is a resolution straight against the Bible and God’s will. The political Democratic Spring in the Arab countries, which looked so promising for the whole world, collapsed that same day when Jews and Christians in Egypt at first was promised to be treated as equals, but then were excluded when the Muslim Brotherhoods said: “We agree to this fact that Egypt is the Copts (Egyptians) land, but because they could not defend their land, they then have forever lost their country to the Muslims.” And suddenly did many of Muslims states get hit by social trouble that ended up in many bloody Civil wars, in that same fate as they wanted Israel to suffer. "Look at Sweden, even they have now killings on the streets ", Trump said when same civil trouble hits our country in 2014 after that speech when PM Lofven declared his own wish to see a 2-states solution in Israel. Don’t mock God.
The three wars on the fields of Armageddon. 1. The first war stands between Israel and its neighboring nations, all Muslim and communist states, was led by Russia and Iran, and they will come into Israel from north, Lebanon, to divide and destroy Israel. (Egypt have not a part in this war due to the tsunami) In this war God defends his people by creating chaos among the enemies, just as it happened on Gideon's days, when all Israel enemies began to fight against each other’s. In Armageddon war the Bible tells us that the soldier’s bodies began to rot ad die while they were all standing up. (Expert says that their deaths look like a misguided A-bomb, launched from Iran?). Book of Judges 6-7 God told Gideon to gradually reduce his troops from 32 000 soldiers until he was left with only 300 men with lunchboxes, big empty clay pots, hidden torches and a knife. For God wanted to show the people of Israel that he could with only 300 cooks defeat 120 000 well-armed soldiers. God knew that the cooks were not interesting in playing soldiers and that they would obey all of Gideons instruction. This was not something eager elite soldiers would have done, just to stand by and see how their enemies began to destroy each other’s.
- 2. The next war at Armageddon takes place at the end days of the Tribulation when the Antichrist armies, from all over the world, plus 200 million soldiers from the East, marches down from the north and begin to overflow the whole of Israel and besieges Jerusalem. The Bible tells us that 2/3 of the Jews will die in this war, and this tells us that the Jews will defend their land valiantly, in trust of their own great military capacity. But then again this was not Gods plan, instead they should have asked God for advice for the end was already know and written. That it is Jesus, as Messiah, coming down from Heaven who will defeat the Antichrist and end all wars. The remaining living 1/3 of Jews will find their way out through the Golden Gate of Jerusalem and flee into the broad valley that opened up when the Messiah placed his feet on the Mount of Olives.
Ezekiel 37 – 39 These chapters tells us that the Jews will return and it also tells us the name of all the countries that are making war against Israel. But before that day has come there will be a short time when Israel are feeling safe, in a fake peace, and they begin to demolish the walls. There have never in the history been any border walls in Israel until the present day, the one against Gaza, which indicates that Gaza has now also become a wasteland. And without the war loving Hamas then the West Bank will also fall as a nation and the UN will now turn over all of the land between Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea to Israel, as it was decided by League of Nations Union in year 1922. And if the same earthquake also makes the Dome of the Rock to collapse into that sinkhole the Palestinians today are digging underneath the mosque, the Middle East problem is not over, for now comes the Tribulation.
- The third war at Armageddon will happened at the end of the 1000-year peace, when Satan will be set free for a short time, maybe a year, to confuse the world, win over many discontent people, and then make war on Messiahs. Only to lose again. And after this war comes the last Judgement Day and then this old world will be rolled up and destroyed.
