Has God Rejected Israel?

I have come across many articles written by many walks of life regarding the Holy Land and their occupants. Some are supportive of the Jews and some are antisemitic.

But I don’t care about people’s preferences and opinions. I believe in the Bible and not what the media shoves down our throat.

Let’s go straight to scripture…

Jeremiah 31:35-37 This is what the Lord says:

The One who gives the sun for light by day, the fixed order of the moon and stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea and makes its waves roar – the Lord of Armies is his name:

If this fixed order departs from before me-

this is the Lord’s declaration-

only then will Israel’s descendants cease to be a nation before me forever.

This is what the Lord says:

Only if the heavens above can be measured and the foundations of the earth below explored, will I reject all of Israel’s descendants because of all they have done – this is the Lord’s declaration.

This is what scripture states. God has NOT rejected Israel. How could He? Is not salvation first for the Jews, then for the Gentiles? Romans 1:16…

Christians fail to realise that Christianity originated in Israel by a Jew named Jesus. He died so that all could be saved if they repented and believed in Him. Now, some of the Israelites became Christians, are they still rejected? No. There are still Messianic Jews who believe in Jesus! God is fighting on behalf of Israel even though some of them don’t believe in Him. In 2014, an article was published about how enemies of Israel launched rockets in an attack against Jerusalem and those rockets swerved away from the Holy City for no reason. Why? God protects that Land. Today, Israel live in Kibbutz. A kibbutz is a self-sustaining village. they can survive without any help from the outside because they have everything they need. God provides for them. So if God is protecting them and you are against Israel, doesn’t that mean that you are fighting against God?

God still has a purpose for Israel which will be revealed in the last days. They will see the King of Kings and know who their Messiah is. Then they will believe. All Israel will be saved.

Romans 11:1 Did God reject His people? By no means!

As Christians, we need to support Israel and not back out because of politics. Israel was recently attacked by Palestinians and the media twisted the story stating that Israel attacked the Palestinians. We live in a world that is very biased. They don’t want you to know the truth.

Another issue in the church that is leading people astray is this crazy notion that the church is the new Israel! How absurd! There is Israel and there are Gentiles. Those who accept Jesus are Believers, also known as Christians. There is a huge difference. When we adopt the idea that we are the new and improved Israel, then we begin to believe the heresy that Israel was rejected by God.

So support Israel in your prayers. Support them by buying their products. Support them because when everyone turns against them, understand then that the end is near. Extremely near…

Frozen

So I have this annoying smartphone that drives me crazy! It keeps on freezing and when I need to do the most important things, it decides to take an interval. It is most fortunate when you are in a rush and you need to get something done and then everything goes still motion picture.

So i tap the Instagram icon an that gives a command to the motherboard of the smartphone to open the application. The CPU spins to obey this command. However, if your RAM is too full or too slow, the action is delayed or not carried out at all.

I have a Hisense smartphone. One must understand that Hisense also makes refrigerators and this is why my device always freezes.

Sometimes I get so mad at this phone I literally take it and smack it against a wall or any solid object around me. Not too hard otherwise, I’ll break my phone. And no, it doesn’t change anything.

I wonder how God feels when He gives us a command and we don’t do it? Or we delay the action we were supposed to carry out? Yet God isn’t ever really mad at us. He is always caring and never hates us. He loves us all the time. If our lives depended upon obedience, all of us would have been dead by now. But here we, dressed in Grace and because of the Cross, we have eternal life and many second chances.

So when you are given a command, do your best to carry it out with swiftness, because someone might be depending upon your action, and you could miss the opportunity of changing someone’s life. Don’t be frozen. Move.

So remember, next time your smartphone or laptop freez—-

Movie Time

Have you ever wondered how movies are made? It all starts with a picture. A picture contains  many pixels that make it up. The more pixels used, the higher the definition and clarity of the picture. Now take that picture and create many different ones like frames. Change the frames couple times a second and it creates the illusion that the picture is moving.

Movies are an illusion…

The thing about movies is that there is a message in them. I believe that unless you learn something from a movie, there’s no point in watching it. The message must be something inspirational and not a worldly influence. You might not like to hear the rest of this post because I’m going to say something that might be unacceptable to some but I think everyone should know this. A Christian should not watch movies that can affect them negatively in a spiritual way. Matthew 6:22-23 says the following: The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes is good, your whole body will be filled with light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness…..

If this be the case, we should be careful what message of indoctrination and brainwashing is being conveyed via movies.

Pureflix and Sherwood Pictures are two main producers of Christian movies like Do you believe? (2015) by Pureflix and Courageous (2011) by Sherwood Pictures. But the best movie produced was when these two collaborated to film Moms’ night out (2014). It was the most hilarious movies I have ever seen.

I really recommend this movie Matchbreaker (2016) for anyone to watch. It has an amazing message that it conveys throughout the entire movie. It made me laugh so much that my parents came to check on me to see if I was okay. Ben Davies acts there as well, he is a Christian actor who plays a part in the movie Uncommon (2015).

Uncommon (2015) is about a Christian guy decides to stand up for Christ no matter what the consequences may be…

 

A Christian should not watch a movie that contains the following:

  • Blasphemy, where they use the name of Jesus and God in vain or mock Christianity
  • Sex scenes or pornography
  • Foul language and profanity
  • Gratuitous violence

So we come to this dilemma….

What if I’m watching a movie and I don’t know if there is anything wrong with it? How would I know if a movie is bad if I haven’t watched it? And sometimes we have watched a movie halfway and then there’s  an ungodly surprise. But because we are so engrossed in the movie, we don’t switch it off and continue to watch till the end. In my personal experience I have stopped the movie 5 minutes into the movie because of swearing, sometimes an whole hour into it because I couldn’t handle the content…

So what do we do?

Well here is the solution….

We go to the IMDB site…

i1

We enter the name of the movie onto the search bar. As an example, I am going to search for the Paul, Apostle of Christ (2018).

i3

I then select the movie that I want to find out about. I then scroll down to Parents Guide. I select that tab….

i4

It will then give me the genres of scenes that this movie contains….

i5

Now you may ask: why would a Christian movie contain two scenes of sex and nudity? That’s because it doesn’t! They pick a scene and place it in that genre. For example, Paul may expose his torso because he is getting flogged or a couple is kissing. This guide is extremely strict in the sense that if a woman walked with a dress up to her knees in the movie, it would be recorded here.

For violence and gore would be the persecution the Church faced under Roman Law. Again, this guide is strict, if someone is slapped or pushed, it is recorded here. It is best if children don’t watch violent movies.

Profanity is where all the bad words are recorded. In this movie, someone calls someone a ‘hell hole’. Be careful what foul language the movie you want to watch contains.

Alcohol, drugs and smoking is also a genre to inform if it is in the movie.

The last genre is frightening and intense scenes. This will be filled up to the brim in horror movies. I don’t recommend horror movies has the sole purpose of the movie is to incite fear into the viewer. 2 Timothy 1:7 says; For God has not given us a spirit of fear…

So there we have it, this is how you can determine what movies are appropriate to watch. However, some movies are obvious in the title like Fifty shades of grey, that is a sick masochistic movie and in it’s unbelievable how people will pay to see a movie featuring sexual abuse. This is not of God and a Christian should not watch such trash.

So may you guard your mind and your heart by what you choose to see. God bless.
