Bible Verse For 2020

Who Is Israel?

De 33:29  Happy [art] thou, O Israel: who [is] like unto thee, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who [is] the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.

And who is Israel?

Romans 2:29  But he [is] a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision [is that] of the heart, in the spirit, [and] not in the letter; whose praise [is] not of men, but of God.

ISRAEL is not a political entity.

Da 2:44  And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

"these kings" refers to Rome

The kingdom that was set up in the days of Rome is the Body of Christ.

If you cannot see it the reason is because you are not a part of it.

If you are not a part of it the reason is not due to someone having excluded you.

You have excluded yourself by unbelief.

When Christ walked the earth he did not side up with the political Zealots whose goal was to free the Jews from the rule of the Herods and Rome.

In fact, Christ made clear the fact that following politics and following Christ are mutually exclusive.

You cannot serve two masters.

Politics of this day are carefully crafted to cause Christians to divide their loyalty.

A clever deception.

To engender hatred.

Politics of this day would have Christians believe that you cannot be a Christian and NOT support the aims of some political faction that claims to defend Christianity.

Politics of this day would have Christians believe that if you are not for the one side, then you must be for the other side. 

But neither side is on the Lord's side.

Politics invariably pull Christians into un-Christian allegiances.

Politics invariably force Christians to compromise.

Compromise is the standard of modern Political Christianity. 

Satan has been using this tactic since at least the time that Christ first set up the church. The Zealots and the Herodians were both wrong. They were all blinded by the politics of self interest. Yet many of them claimed the religious and moral high ground. Wrong again.

Those who desire an earthly kingdom and earthly power and earthly wealth will never turn loose of the world long enough to grasp the things of heaven.

You cannot serve two masters.

Those who serve politics do not serve God.  

Who is ISRAEL?
