What did God intend for us by saying “We?”
All humanity is called (then) of a sense… family!
God has declared by promise, through the truth
of the Abrahamic Covenant, man’s view as a homily¹,
thus shall the people of Israel be called,”the
people of God,” and will not God protect His own?
Of course but after Jesus, The Messiah, gave His
life for all mankind… now call upon Him, not disown,
and come to know the God of the universe is a
personal God… He walked with Abraham so close…
so close as to know him and his seed would fill
the world, as the grains of sandy beach, suppose
you too would find such a closeness as to be
cared for as if you, yourself, are lost in your mind,
and might even think you were right… to dislike
another… and acted as if you knew love but find
no love in your heart for: Israel (the very nation
of God), the Jews (God’s own chosen) or their fate,
the mind and heart acted on, with the action
we take or what we do, declare it to be hate.
Hate comes from a lack of love, found when
we are without God’s presence, for God is love…
love cares for the hand that would harm you or
even kill you, Jesus said this here, not above.
1… Homily: a religious discourse that is intended primarily for spiritual edification rather than doctrinal instruction.
Matthew 5:44 KJV
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
How can one do to another, unless told by God Himself (heard directly or spoken to; which includes the word of God), what he, or her, would refuse to grasp by harming another… knowing the same will be done to them… by God Himself.
[This is from, in abstract. a Sermon on Important Subjects (found here)… see below.]
Have you cried to God in earnest prayer, and used all means for that end? If not, it is plain you are an enemy to God, and love to continue so: you hate him, and practically insist upon it you do right. Nor can you pretend ignorance in this case; for your own conscience tells you, it is your duty to love God.
If it is the duty of man to love God then it is also the duty of man to love his Brother and Sister, humanity, since we are all found to be in the image of The Creator God. Can we not look to the truth of this statement… before doing what we perceive to be right- only to realize we have been wrong all along?
[This is what God desires most from us: worship, relationship, understanding the relationship and obedience. See the telling of the scripture below found here.]
Isaiah 3:9 KJV
9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.
Isaiah 41:22 KJV
22 Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.
Isaiah 44:7 KJV
7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them.
Jeremiah 31:10 KJV
10 Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.
1 John 1:5 KJV
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
Please come to a realization here, about the end times prophecies, everything predicted points to the coming of the “Day Of The Lord (Yahweh).” This will be the second coming, not like when He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey but as its rightful King- claiming back what was taken.
I would also point to actions taken at the UN (recently), initiated by the Palestinian Authority (2015) with a UNESCO campaign, yesterday, October 13th, 2016, the Temple Mount and Western Wall were reclassified Muslim, not Jewish, by UN Resolution. See the article for yourself here, and pray for those in Israel today.
