Ah Israel!

There are three things about Israel that people should pay attention to. This is especially true for those who are prone to freaking out about God as He has revealed Himself in the Old Testament.

1) Whether the Jews are hated because they are God’s chosen people, or God has chosen the Jews because they are universally hated, I’m not sure. Both / And - I suspect.

2) God’s plan has always been to bring salvation to the whole world via the Jewish people, i.e., Jesus

3) “I will destroy any nation that comes against My people, Israel.”

In the Old Testament, the nations that came against the house of Israel were:

a) Coming against God’s favourite

b) Coming against God’s vehicle of salvation for the world, and they were

c) Evil to the core

The wise person will learn something from this. The fool will ignore it.
