Bible Lesson 252

THE JEWS, WHO, WHERE, AND WHAT THEIR PLACE IS IN OUR RELIGION

In Genesis Chapter 12, God spoke to 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: 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: 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.”

The person (Abram) that God spoke the above message to was the beginning of the Jewish Nation.

God speaks to us all in Galatians Chapter 4: and verses 4-7, and assures us that But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.

It is important that God did not come to America but to the nation of the Jews. To understand the Jews, we must understand that they are a chosen people, chosen by God for a special purpose and that purpose was to be Priest to the world.

We know that they failed the test when they failed to recognize Jesus Christ as their Messiah.

They have been under the Judgment of God since that time, but God has not deserted His people and in the end will save them all. It seems that every nation and tribe has chosen to in some way, attempted to pay the Jews back for the cross of Christ.

Even in our time America is experiencing a wave of anti-Semitic violence at this moment, and it is hard to understand because Israel is the only nation that we can depend upon in the Middle east.

Most of those who rail against the Jews are people who do not know and have made no attempt to understand them and their plight among the nations.

I spent a career in the American military and have had the good fortune to have close relationships with men who were Jews. I have to say that I never met a Jew that I did not like.

In fact, in my career when I was flying there was a certain Jew that I knew and who was as close to me as a brother. He died several years ago, and I still miss him.

It would be good if we were to see the nation of the Jews as our friends, instead of always attempting to see them as some type of competition. Try it you might find a real good friend.

Until next time remember if we love them, we will be blessed. And if we curse them God will curse us.

Until next time,

may God bless and keep you
