Museum of Jewish People

Today we visited the Museum of the Jewish People it was very moving. See www.bh.org.il 

It was concerning to see how much the Jewish people have been persecuted over the years and how the Christian Church has been one of those persecutors.  I found one statue that depicted a Christian Ruler on one side and the Jewish lady downcast with a blindfold on the other. This was an example of how the church got it wrong when it thought it had replaced the Jewish people. What we now call replacement theology.

How could God change his mind on his promise to Abraham to Bless the Jewish nation and that he would bless all those who bless the Jews.  If he was able to do that he could change his mind about his plan for the church!  We need to open our eyes to see that God is restoring Israel and the church side by side so they will both fullfill thier devine purpose. There is no other explanation other than God is sustaining and protecting this nation and helping its growth.

Many western nations are in major decline and I believe its because they have denied the existence of God. This does not mean God will forget his people (anyone who believes in him) no matter what nation they live in, I think God is and plans to increase his blesssing on all those who seek him and call him their Lord and thier God. Again you will see the difference between those who serve God and those who do not.

Malachi 3:18 NIV 
“They will be mine,” says the LORD Almighty, “in the day when I make up my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as in compassion a man spares his son who serves him. And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.”
We could well be in a whole new era in Gods calander – Israel and all world wide believers in the God of the Jews are the sign post to say God is still the creator of heaven and earth and he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek HIM.

  • “Many western nations are in major decline and I believe its because they have denied the existence of God.”

    I look forward to debating this particular point with you in the not-too-distant future, Alan, but for now, I’ll leave you with this statistic:

    The most powerful western nation (for now) is the United States of America. A 2007 survey showed that a whopping 78.4% of Americans identified as Christian.

    Consider what this statistic means for American politics.

    • Hi Ken – Still looking forward to discussing this comment with you soon. Alan
