Awaken Biblical Prophecy Commentary – Israel in the Flesh vs God’s Promises

The people of Israel have shown over the years how unfaithful they can be to the God who called them His own and gave them the Promised Land.  However, does a single one of us Gentiles who call ourselves Christians really think we would have acted any differently?  If you do, you are greatly deceived and have learned nothing in your relationship with God.




The people of Israel have shown over the years how unfaithful they can be to the God who called them His own and gave them the Promised Land.  However, does a single one of us Gentiles who call ourselves Christians really think we would have acted any differently?  If you do, you are greatly deceived and have learned nothing in your relationship with God.

There are all sorts of websites and commentators, even those who hold the title of pastor, who promote the villainy of Israel.  Some of their defamations include:

  • “They aren’t really Jews.”
  • “Mossad conspired with the CIA to create Hamas.”
  • “Israel committed all the October 7 atrocities to blame on the innocent Palestinians.”
  • And many more

Some of these are pure bunk; others have a grain of truth.  Satan is always good with mixing in truth with his lies.  But, none of it matters in the bigger picture.

People are fallible.  We ALL have wicked and deceptive hearts.  God knew this truth when He called Israel to Himself and declared that He would be the God of Israel.  Do you know how many times in Scripture this phrase “the God of Israel” is stated?  Searching just the ESV, there are 172 instances in the Old Testament and 1 more declaration of it in the New Testament.

Israel is called “the apple of God’s eye” at least 3 times (see

This ownership and declaration of love is a territorial claim by God.  Note Deuteronomy 32:8-9 (ESV):

 When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance,
when he divided mankind,
he fixed the borders of the peoples
according to the number of the sons of God.
But the Lord’s portion is his people,
Jacob his allotted heritage.

This assertion follows in the wake of Genesis 11 and the incident of the Tower of Babel.  The people in the world following the Flood and God’s command to Noah to spread out and populate the earth disobeyed Him, instead gathering on the plains of Shinar to build the ziggurat with the intent of reaching the heavens and bringing down the gods (not Yahweh) for their own purposes.

God came down with His divine sons, the sons of God, to view this rebellion.  In response, He scattered the peoples over the face of the earth, placing them into nations He designated, and set these Watchers (i.e. sons of God) over these territorial areas.  God’s design in this was for His faithful sons to direct the peoples of these nations to Him, but like the sons of God in Genesis 6, these also rebelled and disobeyed.  They decided they’d rather have the power and glory and worship of the nations rather than God Himself.  As a result, they set themselves up as gods over these nations and are there to this day.

Where were they supposed to direct the people so that they would worship the One true God?  To Israel – God’s portion – to His allotted heritage which Biblically is also called Jacob just as Deuteronomy 32:9 states.  Has anything changed?  Has Yahweh said He is no longer the God of Israel?  Of course not.  In fact, He has doubled down in His Word concerning Israel’s future destiny because of the truth that He remains the nation of Israel’s God.  Read all of Isaiah 27 to get a sense of this.  Specifically, here is Isaiah 27:6:

In days to come Jacob shall take root,
Israel shall blossom and put forth shoots
and fill the whole world with fruit.

In the same measure, here is Isaiah 27:12-13:

In that day from the river Euphrates to the Brook of Egypt the Lord will thresh out the grain, and you will be gleaned one by one, O people of Israel. And in that day a great trumpet will be blown, and those who were lost in the land of Assyria and those who were driven out to the land of Egypt will come and worship the Lord on the holy mountain at Jerusalem.

From God’s very Word, He will redeem Israel.  Thus, is it not foolish to state that He has abandoned all His promises to His Chosen People?

What happens at the end of the Tribulation once Jesus comes to destroy His enemies?  His Millennial reign begins when He sits on His throne in Jerusalem in Israel.  If there is no Israel, how does this happen?  If God has not supernaturally watched over and delivered this nation through all her trials and tribulations in THE Tribulation, are these just empty words in the Bible?

God knew that His people Israel would reject Him.  The Israel deniers in the church seem to think that God has lost His omniscience and didn’t realize this would happen, thus having a plan from the beginning to deal with it.  Despite Israel giving the proverbial middle finger to God – which He knew in advance – He loved them anyway and planned for all that would come.  He is, after all, the God who knows the end from the beginning.  Why else would He proclaim such a hope and a future for Israel?  Why would He bring them together after 1900 years of diaspora and not being a nation to become a nation in one day (Isaiah 66:8) on May 14, 1948?  Is this a picture of a God who has totally abandoned His declared territory of Israel?

If the God we as Christians worship is the same yesterday, today, and forever, His Word stands and His promises are true.  There are evil people in Israel, just as there are in every corner of the globe.  You people who despise Israel and disdain God’s Word about her think you’re so much better than the Jews.

Your fleshly thinking is nothing but worldly wickedness.  Just because Israel contains some evil people changes nothing.  Jesus said that because people hated Him, they would also hate His disciples.  He also declared that those who love Him will be a blessing because they will give His brothers something to drink.  There will be those likewise who won’t give His brothers anything. See the passage on the Judgment of Nations, i.e. the Sheep and Goat Judgment in Matthew 25:31-46.  Who do you think the brothers of Jesus are in this context?  This Judgment follows the Tribulation where the Time of Jacob’s Trouble in the final 3 1/2 years sees great persecution and suffering come upon the Jews.  In Israel and in the nations of the world, those who shelter and care for the Jews are those who will be blessed with salvation so as to enter God’s kingdom.  No, their works didn’t save them.  They ended up giving respite to the Jews because they became born-again.  Those who scorn and hate the Jews will go to eternal punishment.

Do you think that in these current days, there is really any difference?  If you refuse to give Israel – Jesus’ brothers – that drink of water today because you think God has abandoned them, how might Jesus view that?

Here is what I wrote to someone recently who referenced the “truth” that the Jews in Israel are the perpetrators of violence against the so-called Palestinians:

In the OT, God makes promise after promise to Israel to restore them and ultimately bless them immensely.  That doesn’t mean the Jewish people are perfect but God has a VERY special relationship with Israel – the land and the people.  You will search in vain for any such promises to the “Palestinians.”

 When you align with the “Palestinian” cause, you align with the world.  The world hates not only Jesus but it despises Israel.  That should be very apparent to you if you follow the news at all.  This worldly hate comes from only one place – the Prince of the Power of the Air who currently has a temporary hold on this world and all its unbelieving Christ-rejecting people.  When you align with the world in hating Israel, you align with Satan himself and by extension you hate Jesus.

 Satan is the father of lies.  Since his lies animate the world, you are believing his lies when you align against Israel.  Jesus told us in Matthew 24:4 that we should be very discerning in these final days not to be deceived.  By taking up the “Palestinian” cause, you have fallen into that very trap and indeed are being deceived.  As such, you are placing yourself in grave danger with the Lord.

 Go back and listen to or read my various Commentaries where I deal with Israel and provide many Scriptural proofs plus actual facts – not statistics that come from Satan’s minions in Hamas.  I urge you to wake up to God’s truth and stop following what the world declares.  This earth will soon be in a world of hurt, and you want to make sure you’re on the right side – God’s side.

Note in Nehemiah 2:10,19 the attitude of Israel’s enemies:

But when Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite servant heard this, it displeased them greatly that someone had come to seek the welfare of the people of Israel.

But when Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite servant and Geshem the Arab heard of it, they jeered at us and despised us and said, “What is this thing that you are doing? Are you rebelling against the king?”

Now here is the prayer Nehemiah asked of God in Nehemiah 4:4-5:

Hear, O our God, for we are despised. Turn back their taunt on their own heads and give them up to be plundered in a land where they are captives. Do not cover their guilt, and let not their sin be blotted out from your sight, for they have provoked you to anger in the presence of the builders.

I guarantee you that it is this very thing that will happen to all the Israel haters of today, including those in the church.  Their curses over Israel will fall upon their own heads.  Their sin of hostility toward Israel will not be blotted from God’s sight.  Why?  Because by coming against God’s very own Chosen People, they provoke Him to anger.  It will not end well for them.

The only way forward for such people who have through ignorance or design cursed Israel – the apple of God’s eye – is to fall before the Lord in repentance.  Perhaps if you do this from the bottom of your heart, He will forgive you.

Don’t be a fool and follow the ways of the world.  That leads only to destruction.
