Some, even Christian Leaders and Teachers, say that the
questions of the area of Israel and the Palestinian refugees has to be
solved by the Politicians on ,among other things, humanitarian basis –
or that the Believers should not express opinions for Israel. To divide
Jerusalem again “to attain peace” is according to many imperative – even
if “land against peace” has not worked earlier.
But the Bible witnesses differently. The areas of Israel is not a political question, not a question of economy, not a
military question, and not a humanitarian question, but an answer based
on the Bible. And the land was not promised to all of the Semite
people, but distinctly to the descendants of Jacob. We read (Moos.
50:24): And Joseph said unto his brethren,
I die: and God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land
unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
And (to Jacob), Genesis. 35:12: And
the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to
thy seed after thee will I give the land.
And Lev. 26:42: Then will I remember
my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my
covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.
Israelites, descendants of Jacob, are the apple of the eye of
God (Deut. 32:9-10): For the LORD's portion
is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance. He found him in a
desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he
instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
Who blesses Israel, will be blessed
by God and vice verse (Gen. 27:29b): Cursed be every one that
curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee. And Numbers 24:9b:
is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee!
About Jerusalem (2. Kings 21:4b):in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD said,
In Jerusalem will I put my name.And Psalm 147:2: The
LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together
the outcasts of Israel.
Jerusalem, too, is th
apple of the eye of God (2. Sam 24:16a):And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Jerusalem to destroy it, the LORD
repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the
people, It is enough.
Jesus loves Jerusalem so much that he burst into tears because
of its oppression (Luke 19:41): And when he
was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it.
Plus really many verses in the Bible about Israel and Jerusalem, which will be enlightened to you in mercy and truth when you
approach in prayer.
