Pre-eminent Position

The Jewish nation has a glorious future in world affairs…… despite the current anti-semitic sentiment of the populace including many ‘Christians’ who have published videos on Youtube and propaganda on websites claiming that the church has replaced the nation of Israel and taking over all the promises made to that nation.
They continue to malign C. I. Scofield’s character and make him out to have been paid by powerful Jews to subvert Christianity.
I have no idea as to the validity of the information published about him or the plots that surround the writing of the “Scofield Bible”
But two things are very plain to me from reading THE BIBLE…. in any version…. whether KJV, NIV, RSV, ASV or a host of others.
1. The redemption of national Israel and their pre-eminence in the Millennial Kingdom cannot be so easily ‘explained away’ by taking the position that prophecy concerning this future was conditional and has been abrogated by Israel’s rejection of Messiah at His first advent.
For instance, Zechariah 12:10 says plainly, “I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of GRACE and of supplication; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one is in bitterness for his firstborn.” …… from this and many other passages it is clear to me that even though modern-day Israel hates Jesus Christ and has, for the most part, rejected God also….. there is a future coming when the remnant of israel will accept their Messiah ….. because time after time the Bible shows that the purposes of God cannot be thwarted by the actions of men….. for instance, hear Isaiah 45:23 “I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that unto me every knee shall bow and every tongue shall swear” ….. this sounds final to me and does NOT depend on anything that humans do or don’t do or can do.
2. the word GRACE (used in the Zechariah passage above and in many other places) means UNMERITED FAVOR …… there is nothing anybody can do to deserve GRACE….. and there is nothing anybody can do to stop GRACE…… it does not depend upon the actions of men.
Finally, there are many passages in ISAIAH that have not been fulfilled but the context shows that they never were conditional on either the Jews keeping the law OR on the Jews accepting their Messiah at the first Advent.
Notice when the disciples asked Jesus, “Lord wilt thou at this time restore the Kingdom to Israel ?”…… He did NOT tell them that’s not going to happen…… but rather He said, “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the father has put in His own power”
ACTS 1:6 -7
The Jews reading their own Scripture are looking forward to a future day when they will be rulers on the earth….. everybody else is saying no way….. why should they rule ? they are not any more special to God than any other nation ! …… look what they did to Christ …… they HATE Christ ….. and now they hate God…. they are the Devil’s children…. they are the source of all wickedness on the earth (Illuminati conspiracy…. Hollywood… etc. etc.)…… they have been set aside…. it is the Church of Christ that shall rule the earth not the Jews.
Friend, God’s purposes are NOT thwarted by men…. the current crop of Jews will either be converted at Christ’s return or will die before that occurs, just like the rebellious ones died in the wilderness and never entered Canaan.
The Millennial reign of Jesus Christ on Earth from Jerusalem with the Jewish nation acting as priests before God must occur…. and it will occur to fulfill prophecy….. just as everything else has occurred to fulfill prophecy.
You ask why is it so important ?
Since Adam fell, Satan has had the ability to control the earth thru the evil minds of men….. it has been relatively easy to influence them.
There never has yet been a time in history when God has reigned over a God-fearing earth….. a global Theocratic kingdom.
It is necessary that after iniquity has run it’s full course and it has been publicly shown that neither fallen humans nor demons are capable of creating Utopia…… God must be glorified….. He must be shown to be the PERFECT solution to EVERYTHING ….. the all in all.
The church is not excluded…… long-dead saints in glorified bodies will be all over Heaven and the new earth which God has promised to create (Revelation 21:1 – 5) after this planet ceases to exist ….. because even the ungodly scientists know that this planet cannot continue to exist forever….. this planet was never created to last forever…… only long enough for the purposes of God…. to show His Glory…… to show His redemption of the human race….. to show the futility, chaos and ultimate failure of SIN.

Messiah Manifest

“The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. he shall judge among the nations: he shall fill the places with the dead bodies…” Psalm 110:5-6

The fulfillment of this prophecy may not be for some time yet…. however consider this….. suppose Jesus Christ was to put in his appearance at this current time….. how would He be received ?

Do you think the American government would willingly abdicate their authority to His rulership ? what about China, Russia or the EU ?

I have been castigated before for writing about global mayhem and mass murder in the name of God ….. and I have been told to write about peace and love and human unity and roundly rebuked that God is “not like that”…. HE wouldn’t hurt a fly !

But I fail to see how anyone could be so naive !

Isaiah 45:22-23 tells us “Look unto me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am GOD and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, THAT UNTO ME EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW….”

Where does this leave the majority of REBELLIOUS, OWN-WAYED and STIFF-NECKED humans ?

I tell you the TRUTH when I say that they will “attack” God (when HE appears) and suffer the consequences which will be death and destruction.

Face it…. the majority worship MAN and not GOD…. MAN reigns supreme from their point of view…. watch Star Trek, Stargate or ANY OTHER MOVIE…. MAN is always the smartest and the top dog…. it is a MAN centered “point of view” !

The “god” that most people worship is an “imaginary being” who gives them whatever they want… whatever they pray for…. a BIG-ABLE COSMIC SANTA CLAUS !!!!!

Even many “religious people” are going to be SHOCKED out of their wits when the REAL GOD (as revealed in the BIBLE) puts in an appearance.

The humans will regard the appearance of “Jesus Christ and all the holy angels” as an ALIEN INTERVENTION and a THREAT to our planet and “our way of life”

“GOD is LOVE”…. is a favorite phrase that everybody likes to use…. and it’s in the Bible…. and it’s TRUE….. but the very same Bible also tells us that God allowed Jesus Christ, His own Son, to suffer a horrible death on the Cross of Calvary.

Destroying millions of humans may not be “easy” for Him but it will be necessary BECAUSE of LOVE….. and HE HAS SWORN THAT HE WILL DO IT…..

TODAY HE says to every one of you….. HE CALLS TO YOU from Ezekiel 33:11….

“”As I live, says the LORD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; TURN YOU, turn you from your evil ways; for why will you die….”

REPENT and seek the LORD… while He is still calling for you…. and be you thankful that JUDGEMENT has not fallen yet !
