How Does The Church Speak to The Issues In The Middle East?

#13 How will the church speak to the situation in the middle east because within us there is a division between those who think the nation of Israel is God’s chosen people and are elevated above other nations, based upon a belief that is being taught and re-enforced constantly through Christian ministries and Christian TV, and then there are those who increasingly think they are a creation of the Rothchilds as history does point out and it is political Zionism to divide the world and distract the church? an issue that is picking up steam.

Answer

David R Huskins To me the question of Israel is not so much Biblical as it is political. The U S should support Israel to an extent when it is reasonable because they are our only somewhat allies in the region and it is smart to have friends in a region of enemies, but to do so blindly as a biblical mandate is dangerous. now to the point of chosen…all who accept Jesus as the Messiah become a Jew in the New Covenant so the debate should never be over geography and who rules a strip of land but rather who governs the heart of the individual. No nation has a blanket unconditional private agreement with God but HIS covenant is with those that honor HIM and individuals within any border can bring blessing on them and their nation by doing

Andrew Kennedy Neither Jew nor Greek…. ? Sarah represents the New Jerusalem which is us, and Hagar the Physical Jerusalem in the middle east. This is really not difficult… We are Israel, we are the city, We are the gates, we are Jerusalem… Praying for all the people whom Jesus came to die for. ALL means all. Jews and Palestines and every country in the world…

Jim Taylor I know of people who minister among the Palestinians … the Christian Palestinians are almost totally ignored by the western church .. seeing things from their eyes gives one a whole different picture.

Joel Thornhill I had learned it this way. The old law(the old testament) represented things out of the physical. It dies and returns to the earth. It has no eternal life in it. But things of the Spirit are represented as the New testament, His divine nature etc… Then why do we concentrate on this new temple being built of stone somewhere in Israel which is nothing but symbolic of things old?

Ronald M. Pillay The true Israel of God is His Church the many membered Body of Christ, not a geographical location in the Middle East- Revelation 21. It’s in the WORD OF GOD (nobody is permitted to argue with that?) God as no favorites, He does not prefer one nation or people over another.

  • Elaine Pigott what is the Rothchild?

  • Joyce Angolo its true the bible say CHOSEN PPLE ARE THEY WHO FEAR HIM AND THEY ARE CALLED BY HIM

  • Diana Snyder Hester Read the Bible and take it quite literally instead of listening to spin preachers and there is no confusion at all.

  • Diana Snyder Hester BTW, it is taught and being reinforced through Christian ministries because it is what the Bible says. I don’t watch Christian television or listen to Christian radio but I totally understand God’s heart toward Israel because it is in the Bible.

  • Diana Snyder Hester God does not lift the promises He spoke over Israel, just because of blindness on their part. God is not a man that He should lie or break covenant with His word and promises. If He did, we would all be screwed
