The Bible does not teach us to be partial

ALL

The Bible does not teach us to be partial to Israel or to the Palestinians, or any nation firstly. ” Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since God is one. He will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith” (Romans 3:29-30).

Israel was chosen by God from all the peoples of the world to be the focus of special blessing in the history of redemption which climaxed in Jesus Christ, the Messiah. “The LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth” (Deuteronomy 7:6).


But no Biblical facts still today leads necessarily to the endorsement of present-day Israel as the rightful possessor of all the promised land. Or any Nation as it belongs to Jesus Christ now.

The non-covenant-keeping Israel does not have a divine right to hold the land of promise. Both the blessed status of the people and the privileged right to the land are conditional on Israel’s keeping the covenant God made with her. Thus God said to Israel, “If you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples” (Exodus 19:5). Their own disobedience brings them the punishment

Israel as a whole today rejects her Messiah, Jesus Christ, God’s Son. This is the ultimate act of covenant-breaking with God. God promised that to Israel “a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”  (Isaiah 9:6-7).  But with tears this Prince of Peace looked out over Jerusalem and said, “Would that you . . . had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. . . . You did not know the time of your visitation” (Luke 19:42-44).

When the builders rejected the beautiful Cornerstone, Jesus said, “The kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits” (Matthew 21:43). He explained, “Many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness” (Matthew 8:11-12)

The ethnic Israel and it’s the people are always at enmity with God in rejecting the gospel of Jesus Christ, their Messiah (Romans 11:28).

Israel once before in the past had already been Refused a right to Enter the Promised Land (Deuteronomy 1:19-45)

34 When the Lord heard your words, he was wrathful and swore: 35 “Not one of these—not one of this evil generation—shall see the good land that I swore to give to your ancestors, 36 except Caleb son of Jephunneh. He shall see it, and to him and to his descendants I will give the land on which he set foot, because of his complete fidelity to the Lord.” 37 Even with me the Lord was angry on your account, saying, “You also shall not enter there. 38 Joshua son of Nun, your assistant, shall enter there; encourage him, for he is the one who will secure Israel’s possession of it. 39 And as for your little ones, who you thought would become booty, your children, who today do not yet know right from wrong, they shall enter there; to them I will give it, and they shall take possession of it. 40 But as for you, journey back into the wilderness, in the direction of the Red Sea.” (Num 14:34–40)

“Before entering the Promised Land, the Eternal instructed Moses to send a chieftain from each tribe into the Land to determine three things: the kind of people that lived there, what kind of fortifications were present, and what kind of agriculture they could expect. The spies brought back a mixed report. The Land was a true paradise, but the people who lived there were Anakites, descendants of the race of giants (Numbers 13:27-33). Ten of the spies declared the Land unconquerable. Two of the spies dissented, saying that with God all things are possible (Numbers 14:6-9). The Israelites cast their vote with the report of the ten spies. Fed up with the incessant muttering of the Israelites and their lack of faith, the Eternal cursed the current generation. No one over the age of twenty would enter the Promised Land. Instead, Israel would wander in the wilderness for forty years, until the generation of dissenters would die out and a new generation, faithful to the Eternal, would arise. Faced with such a rebuke, the Israelites instantly trusted in the Eternal and decided to march into the Land-early the very next day (Numbers 14:40)! Moses warned the people that their fate had already been sealed. He predicted that the Amalekites and the Canaanites would overcome the Israelites, for the Eternal would not be with them. Throwing caution to the wind, the Israelites defiantly marched into the Land, and accordingly, they were dealt a shattering blow at Hormah (Numbers 14:45). ”

Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them. This was the water of Meribah, because the children of Israel contended with the Lord and He was hallowed among them – Numbers 20 : 12 – 13.

“Even Moses was denied entrance into the Promised Land because he disobeyed God. (Numbers 20:1-12) The first time the Israelites needed water, the Lord told Moses to strike a large rock and water came forth (Exodus 17:1-7). The second time He told Moses to speak to the rock. But Moses was angry and yelled at the people and then struck the rock again, twice, and again water came out. So what was the problem? The water was a foreshadowing of the Holy Spirit that the Lord promised to all who believe (John 7:37-39) and the rock was a model of Christ, who had to be struck (crucified) before the Spirit could be given. But after His death one only needed to ask to receive the Spirit. By striking the rock the second time Moses was violating the lesson the Lord was trying to teach us. Jesus only had to die once for us to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. After that all we have to do is ask to receive Him (Matt. 7:7-8) So this was more than a single act of disobedience on the part of Moses. It was in effect a denial of the sufficiency of the Lord’s death.”

Then I pleaded with the Lord at that time, saying, O Lord God, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your mighty hand, for what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do anything like Your works and Your mighty deeds? I pray, let me cross over and see the good land beyond the Jordan, those pleasant mountains and Lebanon. But the Lord was angry with me on your account and would not listen to me. So the Lord said to me, enough of that! speak no more to Me of this – Deuteronomy 3 : 23 – 26.

It will be that if you hearken to My commandments that I command you today…then I shall provide rain for your land in its proper time…that you may gather your grain, your wine and your oil…and you will eat and be satisfied. Beware for yourselves, lest your heart be seduced and you go astray…the ground will not yield its produce and you will be swiftly banished from the goodly land that God gives you. (Deut. 11: 13-17

God is a supreme God. He has passed His judgment on Moses and Aaron, Israel and it has to be fulfilled. Matthew 23 :38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

Luke 13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Acts 1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.
