In an article posted here recently, the Catholic Church has once again abandoned God’s chosen. In this very dangerous statement…
The Creator’s promise in the Bible that the Promised Land belongs to the Jewish People is no longer valid.
The Catholic Church has once again affirmed their stance and given tacit blessing to the persecutors of the Jewish people. As I see it, the covenant God made with Abraham was everlasting… in fact, it was a one-way covenant (Genesis 15:17.) This means that God would always keep it, even though man could not!
Furthermore, Genesis 13:14-15 says that the land belongs to Israel forever. This is a promise from God, not law given by Him. As such, Jesus came to fulfill the law, not to NEGATE it! The law is still valid and so are the promises.
As I see it, God is unchanging, and He never goes back on His promises. He might expand them, but His promises are FOREVER. It is easy to understand, even by a superficial reading of the book of Esther, that God does not negate His words.
The American archbishop that stated that the promise of the Creator was “abolished by the presence of Christ” could not be more mistaken. In fact, it is HERESY! Statements such as this show the dearth of knowledge of redemption in Christ present in “the (Catholic) church.”.
Not surprising, the error of replacement theology or supersessionism has been a pariah on Christendom and was foisted upon us by Catholicism. It has led to anti-Semitism. This heresy is very dangerous, and was the probable empowerment to Hitler’s “final solution.”
God most certainly is not finished with His people, Israel. They are being gathered together from the four corners of the Earth to fulfill the grand end of the ages. But sadly, this grand end of the ages, is a judgment on that unrepentant Abrahamic house.
Even more sadly, this anti-Semitic error, purported by what most outside Christendom see as “the church,” is the main stumbling block American Jews have in trusting the true church, and by extension, Jesus Christ. (Perhaps this recent post can shed some light that subject.) The true Christian church is NOT the Catholic Church, and is plainly made evident by this recent proclamation.
It is my prayer that the Catholic Church atones for its error. But, the damage may already be irreparable. Nevertheless, time marches on, Daniel’s 70th week is yet to be fulfilled. Our hope is that our Jewish brothers and sisters see the Jesus, as the Messiah, is the Final Sacrifice.Print This Post Filed under CULTure, Eschatology, history, israel, news, prophecy | Tags: abraham, Christianity, End Times, God, israel, Jesus, Jesus Christ, politics | Comment (1)
Hmmm… it kind of makes you wonder, but should it. Read the original article here.
Jerusalem is indeed a “cup of trembling” to the entire world, except of course, the United States. We have moved to our side, the wrong one.
May all mighty God bring peace to Jerusalem quickly. It will happen, He has promised…
God has an agenda for the ages and its centerpiece is Jerusalem. There are also some vast irreconcilable differences between Islam and Judaism and/or Christianity. Islam is not a continuation of Christianity or Judaism. It is the religion that will bring shackles to the entire world.
To find out God’s agenda as told by a former PLO terrorist… Wallid Shoebat go here.Print This Post Filed under Eschatology, government, israel, news, News&Views, prophecy, views | Tags: abraham, america, arrogance, Democrats, End Times, God, government, israel, Jesus, jews, obama, politics, prophecy, the lie | Comment (1)
You know what it is like to get up every morning and prepare yourself for the grind of the day. You are prepared for anything, yet when you come home, you feel as if you have been kicked to the curb. Or worse, you blew it, you really messed up.
That is one day in our life, consider Abram. We read all about him and how he blew it all the time. He really messed up by not quite telling the truth about his wife. God made a covenant with him; a nation would descend from him. Despite this, he let his wife be taken into Pharaoh’s harem.
Yet, we read later:Genesis 17:1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless,
God commanded Abram to walk before Him and be blameless! How does Abram do that?
Especially, knowing that later in Genesis, Abram lets his wife Sarai be taken into the harem of another king!
Can I ask you something… do you really think that when God commanded Abram to walk before Him and be blameless, that He didn’t know this would happen, too?
Of course He did! God cannot learn. God did not know you would blow it today, or did He?
The Bible tells us that even though we were yet sinning, meaning that even though we were not born, or even born again, that Jesus died for us. But, He also died for everything you would wrong do in your life, He knew it all, yet He was obedient! So, dear one, He is not surprised.
So what do we do?
Live like Paul described in Romans 8. It tells exactly who you are, in Christ, and where you stand before Him. Specifically: Romans 8:28 – 30 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.
So, for those know their sins are forgiven, God says to walk before Him and be blameless. He has mercifully given you a clean slate every day. His mercies are new every morning. Take advantage of this, get somewhere quiet, confess your sins to God and feed yourself by reading His word. It is the continual cleansing of the Word that keeps you blameless. Remember those temple priests and how they had to ritually wash themselves everyday, this is the picture that God gave us.
So, brothers and sisters, WALK BLAMELESS BEFORE GOD! And remember Romans 8:33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.Print This Post Filed under BibleStudies, CloserToGod | Tags: abraham, God, israel, jews | Comments Off on Defeated?
Gen 22:15 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,
Gen 22:16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only [son]:
Gen 22:17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which [is] upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
Gen 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.Print This Post Filed under BibleStudies, CloserToGod, quote, views | Tags: abraham, God, israel, jews | Comments Off on Bless the Jews and be Blessed, again
Gen 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
Gen 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
Gen 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.Print This Post Filed under BibleStudies, CloserToGod, quote, views | Tags: abraham, God, israel, jew, jews | Comments Off on Bless the Jews and be Blessed
For the most part, people think the middle east conflict is about oil and “palestinian oppression.” It is actually a case of sibling rivalry.
Abraham had two sons. In the west, most of us that have Jewish friends have heard of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Abraham was old and had a son named Isaac, whose descendent became the Jews.What most people do not realize is that Isaac had an older half brother, Ishmael. Ishmael became the father of the Arabs.
Abraham had been told by God years before that he would have a son in whom the whole world would be blessed. Abraham was 87 years old and his wife Sarah was 77. Sarah told Abraham, ‘look, I am old and past menopause, I never had kids and it is just not happening. Here is my handmaid Hagar; have a kid with her and you will have an heir.’
Big mistake! Whenever you try to “help God’s plan” you end up throwing a monkey wrench into the works. The sons of Ishmael settled mostly on what became the Arabian Peninsula. Eventually Mohammed was born and started Islam which grew into an empire which covered most of south west Asia and northern Africa. They were at the height of their empire between 700 and 1000 AD. These good old days are glorified by the Wahhabi sect of Islam, started by the Saudis and exported to poor Arab nations with Saudi oil money.
The Jews went through a deportation to Babylon, came back to Israel, were dispersed to the four winds by the Romans and eventually came back to settle in the promised land again after WW II with the help mainly of the British and Americans.
Meanwhile, the oil companies had discovered oil under Ishmael’s son’s land and made them all rich. So now it is May 14, 1948, the British are leaving, The Jews declare the state of Israel to be founded and the Arabs attack and are repulsed by this little band of Jews.
For years before and after the 1948 western politics had been revolving around the Jews and the promised land and the Arabs and the largest oil reserves in the world. Arab politics are simple. Jews and Christians are infidels and need to be killed and Islam must become a world empire.
God told Abraham “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.” Gen 12:3 later, God told Abraham about his son Isaac, “And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.” Gen 22:18
God told Isaac ” Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; 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;” Gen 26:3-4
It all comes down to which son you care to be friends with: Ishmael with his oil or Isaac with his blessing. The mess the world is in is all wrapped up in Ishmael’s oil and religion, so I choose Isaac.Print This Post Filed under BibleStudies, CloserToGod, News&Views | Tags: abraham, arab, God, ishmael, jew, mideast | Comments Off on Abraham had two sons…
