End Times; God’s unique relationship with Israel

Charles Dicken’s great classic is, “A Tale of Two Cities.”  This could also be the subtitle of the Bible, for indeed at its foundation the Bible is a tale of two cities: Israel and Babylon. Of course we cannot forget a third category, “The Nations.”

Isaac and Rebekah had twin boys and God made another choice.  Ignoring the cultural norm of choosing the elder twin, God chose Jacob over Esau to continue the line of the Seed of the woman.

God’s Unique Relationship with Israel

God chose Israel through whom to fulfill His promise to destroy the seed of the Serpent by the Seed of the Woman. From the sons of Adam and Eve, God chose Seth, then Terah and Abram (renamed Abraham).

Most of the world, and even some in the Church are ignorant of God’s unique relationship with Israel. This ignorance is really a spiritual blindness; if Believers are blind, how much greater is the blindness of the world?

God’s unique relationship with Zion

God’s unique relationship with Israel

Today “Zion” relates to all of Jerusalem and even all of Israel. The term “Zionism” describes a political and religious movement which believes that all of the land God promised to Abraham and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob will be occupied by the Jewish people.
