The Christian Holy Bible with its Jewish Origins Clearly Support Israel's Position in the Holy Land

Reader comment on item: Obama to Palestinians: Accept the Jewish State
in response to reader comment: Israel is Jewish according to my Christian Bible !

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Apr 4, 2013 at 16:31

Use of the Holy Bible to define the Jewish State provides an easy understanding for anyone who has even a minimal perception of why Israel even exists, according to the promises to Abraham by the Almighty Eternal Sovereign. But when one sees how ambivalent much of the non-Jewish world cannot see that perception, even that is described in the Holy Bible for all who are willing to understand its precepts. And there's the rub; not all who read the Holy Bible, written by mostly Jewish followers of the Eternal Sovereign, are willing to take it at its WORD.

So, if, as so many indicate that Candidate Obama is Christian, why are some skeptical of his insistence that Israel should be recognized as a Jewish State. The Eternal Sovereign in the Holy Bible states: In that day the Branch of the LORD shall be beautiful and glorious; And the fruit of the earth shall be] excellent and appealing for those of Israel who have escaped. And it shall come to pass that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy--everyone who is recorded among the living in Jerusalem. When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and purged the blood of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning, then the LORD will create above every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night. For over all the glory there will be a covering.

So it is no small thing to observe the Jewish character of the land called Israel and to those who would dismiss it, a warning has already been issued and the challenge taken. The promise has already been given and to whom the LORD says He will bless by that promise He will honor that promise. It behooves the beholder of the Holy Bible to be sure one follows the correct Son when He enters Jerusalem in fulfillment of the Holy Bible.
