Love for our Jewish Friends
As Bible believing Christians we have a
great love for the Jewish people. Please allow us to explain why this is so.
Because of what the Bible teaches we are absolutely convinced of the following:
- The Jews are God's chosen people:
"For thou (Israel) art an holy people unto the LORD thy
God; the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself,
above all the peoples who are upon the face of the earth" (Deuteronomy 7:6).
- God used the Jewish people in a
special way to give mankind the Bible. He used men such as Moses and David and
Solomon and Isaiah and Jeremiah and Ezekiel to be His special penmen.
- It was to the Jewish people that God
gave His holy laws, especially the Ten Commandments, which are a reflection of
God's holy and absolute standards (Exodus 20;
Deuteronomy 5). Those societies or those individuals that disregard these laws are
headed for trouble.
- Israel has divine rights to the land
of Israel (Eretz Yisrael) because God Himself promised this land to Israel in the covenant
which He made (cut) with Israel: "Unto thy seed
have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the
river Euphrates" (Genesis 15:18). Because of this we fully
support the nation Israel in their rightful claim of the land of Israel as
their homeland. Their cause is just.
- God has a wonderful future for the
Jewish people. This involves the fulfillment of all of the kingdom
promises found in the writings of the Hebrew prophets
(such as found in Isaiah 2:1-5; Isaiah 9:6-7; Isaiah 11:1-16; Jeremiah 23:5-8;
Jeremiah chapter 31, and many other similar promises). We are convinced
that the day is coming when Israel shall dwell safely in the land to enjoy a
peace and prosperity such as the nation has never had. Indeed, according to
the prophets, Jerusalem will be the capital of the world and Israel will
be the pride of every nation (Micah 4:1-2; Zechariah
In light of these great realities, we
would urge you to carefully consider the following documents. May the LORD
bless you and keep you in these difficult and challenging days.
