Millions of Jews were wondering if 2017 would be a jubilee echo of the Balfour Declaration in 1917 and the Six Day War 50 years later in 1967. But 2017 is disappointing with daughter of a holocaust survivor deported because her father became a Christian (Newsweek 11-21-17).
Is Israel just for Jews? asks Dr. Richard Ruhling, an author with Jewish roots. He says the Tannach (Old Testament) quotes God as giving Abraham the land from the river of Egypt to the Euphrates for his “seed” or children, Genesis 15. Ruhling offers further information…
Christians should have a 5 to 1 advantage in claiming the Middle East as their land because they are descendants of the ten-tribe northern kingdom of Israel while only two tribes (Judah and Benjamin) represent Jews not so scattered. But Jeremiah 30,31 promises all a return!
The northern kingdom established a false center of worship in Dan because Jereboam did not want them to establish sympathies with Judah while attending holy days in Jerusalem after the split caused by the high taxes of Solomon’s son.
God scattered Israel among the nations and many intermarried with Christians in Europe and fled papal oppression for freedom in the New World. They continue the idea of a false center of worship on Sunday, a day having only pagan roots from sun worship as opposed to the Sabbath defined in the 4th Commandment of Exodus 20.
But that commandment also shows God’s regard for “the stranger within your gates,” meaning that God wanted non-Jews to be blessed by a day off — “the Sabbath was made for man.” The Jews made it a burden of legalistic compliance to earn a standing with God by an outward show of merit while inwardly they were full of malice seen by their crucifying their Messiah as foretold first by Abraham (“God will provide Himself a sacrifice”), Psalm 22 and Isaiah 53.
Yeshua said we would be judged and treated as we judge and treat others. To deport a daughter of the Holocaust shows nothing has changed in 2000 years, and if genetic Jews in Israel would read Zechariah 14, they might see their title to Jerusalem is about to be revoked.
The return of Jews was premature; Leviticus 26 mandates a 7-fold punishment for Israel’s 390 years of apostasy cited in Ezekiel 4:5,6.
7 x 390 = 2730 years that began with the Assyrian captivity in 722 BCE. Subtracting 722 from 2730 years would be 2008, but with no year “0” it’s 2009 and the UN gift of land for Israel should not have been taken as a sign to return. 1948 was premature.
The UN is a catholic (universal) organization that favors a melting pot of many peoples, like Babylon or Babel where languages were confused; the UN is not God’s way of helping Israel.
God intended that land for Abraham’s seed in Genesis 15. Paul said, “If you are Christ’s, you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise [of land].” Galatians 3:29.
In the end-time, God is going to put Judah (Jews who accept the Messiah) together with Israel (10 tribes that were scattered among the nations and represent Christians who accept biblical laws). This is the imagery of dry bones and two sticks that come together in Ezek 37.
Those two groups will be fully compatible after a shaking – an earthquake that initiates end-times as seen in Joel 2:10,11; Zechariah 14:1,5.
This end-time gathering is also seen in Jeremiah 30:3, where God “will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah…and cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.”
“I am with you to save you…though I make a full end of all other nations…in the latter days you shall consider it,” Jeremiah 30:11,24. This is the context for the New Covenant Promise in Jeremiah 31.
When the New World Order is set up, aliyah, (returning) will be appropriate for Jews and Christians like 7th-day Adventists who honor the Sabbath of the Bible.
New World Order must allow for freedom of religion initially, but compelling force seen in Revelation 13:15-17. The coming trouble will be better in the land of the covenant where God will defend His covenant as He said in Exodus 34:10,11.
In the meantime, watch for Jerusalem to be compassed with armies—the warning given by Yeshua who was a Jew and loved His brethren—that’s why He died, and the prophecies of Daniel 9 show it was right on time, totally missed by the Jewish leaders protecting status quo.
