Blessed is Israel

gadfly

God is not one who is like a gadfly (horsefly) that flits from here to there or seeks to bite and annoy first one and then another. Among the names of God are Elohim (My Creator), Jehovah (My Lord God), El-Shaddai (My Supplier), Jehovah Jireh (My Provider), Adona (My Master) and Abba (my Father).

My Creator, Lord God, Supplier, Provider, Master, and Father is trustworthy (Numbers 23:19) and true. God knows the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10). He is a jealous God (Deuteronomy 4:24) and judges those that seek other Gods (Exodus 20:3) and look for other ways than Jesus for salvation, the King of Israel (John 10:1).

God has anger in His heart (Psalm 7:11) towards the people that mistreat His chosen people, Israel. Anger? Is He not the God of love? Yes, He is the God of love, but He has anger against us if we set ourselves against His chosen people. Israel is God’s chosen people (Exodus 19:6). If we receive Jesus as our Savior, then He adopts us. (Romans 8:15)

Who would poke their finger into the apple (pupil) of His eye (Zechariah 2:8)? A fool (Proverbs 28:26)! How can we forget that His people are, “a people dwelling alone, and not counting itself among the nations?” (Numbers 23:9)

God Will Bless

God will bless the nations among whom Israel is counted a friend and will punish those that curse Israel:

“Blessed are those who bless you,
and cursed are those who curse you.”

Numbers 24:9b

Look around and discover who is against Israel. Several denominations have cancelled their support for Israel. Many media outlets are openly hostile to Israel. Many in Europe are once again blaming being openly prejudice against the Jews. It is a wise person that seeks to bless Israel and a fool that curses God’s chosen people.

What We Should Know

Around the world and in our own backyard, there is increasing bigotry against God’s chosen people. Below is a quote from a recent letter of support after the Harvard Hillel building was vandalized twice within two weeks in late May 2021. 

“We are also disheartened by the rise in anti-Israel sentiment and in activism across the University and the greater Cambridge area that seeks to delegitimize the existence of the State of Israel and the right of the Jewish people to self-determination, not least through the libelous application of terms such as ‘apartheid,’ ‘white supremacy,’ ‘ethnic cleansing,’ and ‘colonialism,’” the letter reads.

What God Has Said

What God has said should not be considered arcane or diminished. His words are “Yes” and “Amen.” (2 Corinthians 1:20) What He has declared does not have a “shelf life” become diminished or impotent through the passage of time. Every word from God is true, eternal, and destined to accomplish the purpose for what He spoke (Isaiah 55:11). He is God, “and in Him is no darkness.(1 John 1:5)

Each Gentile Christian is individually grafted (adopted) into God’s chosen people (Romans 11:17). Let’s make sure we are not of two minds (James 1:8) about the Israelites. We must be all-in for Israel because Jesus, a Jew, chose to be all-in for Israel.
