Does christian God love Arabs?
The Bible is quite conclusive about the fact that God has indeed chosen one people over all others in the world. Why would God make such a distinction? It would seem to be an antithetical action for the Creator of all people to choose one people from all other peoples, to a status of “God’s Chosen people”.
The man’s statement, “I could not accept a God that favors one people over another”, carries with it the attached stigma that if God prefers one nation over another, then he isn’t a fair and just God. This attitude also diminishes the role of Israel in historical prophecy. This is a serious mistaken point of view if God has indeed made a choice among nations.
Lets begin by establishing the fact that God didn’t actually choose an existing nation when he struck a covenant with Abraham. God had recently judged the entire world of nations with the Great Flood, when he called unto Abraham to leave his native land of Ur, and embark on a journey into another land.
Abraham was born only about 400 years after the great flood, indicating that the world’s population at the time of the calling of God was quite small. In fact, Noah died only two years before Abraham was born.
In reality, there wasn’t any nations with established and defined borders such as is common today. There only existed a network of city-states. It was just such colonies as these that Nimrod established a system of defensive alliances for, thus enabling him the capacity to enforce a consolidation into a one world order!
Nimrod was born only about 250 years earlier than Abraham. It became Satan’s scheme to compel all the tribes of the earth to “come together”, to conform to a centralized and uniform system of religion, culture, and economic geopolitical union.
All these city-state and tribal regions were involved in pagan polytheism. Nimrod was even worshipped as the manifested son of God, or sun god. Among these city states were Erech, Accad, Larsa, Babel, Fara, Kish, Lagash, Eridu, Nippur, and Ur.
It was from out of the city of Ur, that God called Abraham for the purpose of constituting a nation to be a testimony of the one true God!
Genesis 12:3 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy own fathers house, unto a land that I will show thee:
This is the Abrahamic Covenant. God could have chosen anyone he wished to become the Father of a new nation to be the vehicle of his testimony. Maybe he did call others. The Bible doesn’t relate any info about whether anyone else was called upon to father a new nation, but one thing is for certain; if anyone else was called they didn’t respond the way Abraham did. Abraham obeyed, and left Ur, and departed from the Pagan world to follow God.
So, in essence, God did not choose Israel, he chose Abram, and Abram chose to accept. It is noteworthy to remember that the name of Israel only came into existance when God changed Jacob’s name to Israel.
Genesis 12:2-3 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
And I will bless them that bless thee, and I will curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall ALL families of the earth be blessed.
In this covenant, God pronounces blessings for all people through the action that he and Abraham have entered into agreement on.
Now, does that sound like God favors one people over another in so far as his love and compassion is concerned? Indeed not.
God loves every nation, and every tribe, and every family. It was expedient for God to choose someone to embody the lineage of his intended blessings. The great irony of God having a “chosen nation”, is that if God hadn’t chosen someone, somewhere, sometime, then; nobody could ever be the benefactor of an all encompassing love that God wishes to bless us with!
The great concern and mystery to me is not that he chose who he chose, but that he would choose at all! Thanks be to God for choosing anyone, anytime, anywhere!
This choice proves that God is love. This choosing by God further shows that he loves lost people just as much as he loves obedient people.
After all, the Abrahamic Covenant instituted a plan whereby all people could be blessed through their own freedom to choose to accept God’s manifestant.
II Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
The gospel is to be preached unto all nations, and all peoples, races, and cultures.
God is not biased against the Arab nations, or the Palestinians, or anyone else. To the contrary, he has offered even the enemies of Israel his love. There are Christians today in every nation of the world. Christ is the only means of peace and harmony among the nations.
To those who criticize God for selecting Israel to become a nation unto himself, I pose this question; How would you like to endure the same calamities that Israel has historically endured? Could you fare any better in your covenant to God than has Israel?
Isn’t it ironic that out of nearly 200 nations that are in the world today, and of the many thousands of nations that have found a name in history’s great roll call, that the one particular nation that God did set aside for his name, has also been the nation that has been the most despised and persecuted.
Israel certainly has not enjoyed the admiration of this world, nor received accolades from other nations for being chosen by God to carry his name. Why has this been the attitude of the nations?
Jesus said (John 16:18): “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.”
From the very moment of the fall, it has been the scheme of Satan to destroy the foreordained delivery mechanism that God instituted to restore humanity to righteousness with the creator.
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; and it shall even bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heal.
It was only logical that Satan would pursue whom ever God chose to become the vehicle to provide the the family of nations with a manifestation of God!
Jesus was born from among the lineage of Abraham and therefore within the nation of Israel, to offer a hope to all nations.
But all Christians owe a debt of gratitude to the chosen nation. If only the Jews and the Arabic nations could be permeated with the good news that God has manifested himself to all people via the one born King of the Jews, then Satan would find fewer adversaries with which he could pursue and persecute the seed of the woman.
God promised to return Israel to the original land that he set aside for his “Chosen Nation”, and that promise is being enacted out today, in our lifetime!
Antagonism toward Israel today by the worlds body of nations is ultimately going to play right into the Antichrists agenda to exterminate Israel.
Indifference by Christians today concerning the ever tightening political noose around the neck of Israel in the quickening Middle East quest for World unity by the Gentile nations, is stifling Christ’s message to all nations!
Psalms 83:4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
Satan has desired to exterminate the nation which God chose, and he has lobbied the non-Jewish, and particularly non-Christian nations to erase from mind any remembrance of God’s agreement with Israel.
During the Great Tribulational era, Satan shall cast all his realm into an all out final assault upon God’s chosen nation, in an attempt to preempt the God of Israel from keeping his promise to his chosen people.
Acts chapter 15 speaks to the matter that God is presently taking a “second nation or group” of people from the world into his covenant, and that after this is accomplished that he will turn the hearts of Israel back to himself!
These chosen ones are called Christians. This chosen people include all nationalities!
God has in his foreknowledge utilized the method of preaching the word to the Gentiles, while showing Israel the word manifest in flesh. Israel will in time be provoked to acknowledge what has become known among the Gentile nations, that Jesus is the King!
So then, it is true that all men may become the seed of the chosen one, Abraham; and the blessing comes through Jesus Christ.
Galations 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
What promise? That all nations may be blessed via the seed of the woman, Israel.
From Babylon he began to pacify mankind’s rebellion against God’s choice to reconcile the creation again unto himself. Thus Satan has endeavored to engage the nations into forming a World Community among all non-Jewish nations with himself installed as God.
The confederacy of nations of this world opposing God’s providence to uplift Zion, and deliver a king to Israel; is doomed to failure:
Isaiah 40:17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.
It is vanity to oppose God, but this is exactly the course that the nations are set upon. God simply is utilizing one nation to be a sign to all nations.
Jesus refused the adulation of the kingdoms of the world when he was here, because their dominion was Satanically structured and dominated.
“Why did God choose Israel to carry his name?”
Deuteronomy 7:7 The Lord did not set his love upon you nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest people of all people!
It is often God’s way to take the smallest, the out cast of the world, those who are downtrodden, those whom the world deems as worthless, the people who have little to offer, to work his wondrous miracles!
Of course God does not need the riches, talents, or strengths of nations, or people to bring into fruition his redemptive nation. He very often utilizes best the one who is most humble and willing to follow him. This is precisely the attitude that Abraham displayed when he simply followed after the Lord!
God has chosen all people, even from the beginning of Creation, to be a people unto his name, but each person much choose back.
God proclaimed to Israel.
Deuteronomy 7:6 For thou art a holy people unto the Lord thy God; the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself above all the people that are upon all the face of the earth.
God proclaims to his called out church:
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but “I have Chosen you” out of the world, therefore the world hateth you!
For those who would question the reason why God chose Israel, they must also ponder the question as to why God would choose them out of the world.
The Church has been called out from being a part of the world; and to be separated from the world in like manner as Israel was set aside as a Holy People unto God’s name.
Israel has served as the forerunner of the Church.
The long running drama of Israel’s journey among the nations, and the promises God made to gather it from all nations of the world portray an object lesson to that group of people that are today receiving the call to come out of the world. As he chastised Israel and yet preserved her, the Church can draw strength from that exhibition because it demonstrates that God is faithful to his word!
The Church is an alien people in this world, and God is demonstrating through his Chosen Nation the clear idea that he will gather the Church as he also has gathered Israel from all the nations to which she has been scattered.
I am awestruck by the fact that God has attached his name to the tiniest nation in the world, and set a sign upon them, with which all the great nations past and present find intolerable, and yet Israel still remains unassimilated into other nations and presents a perplexing dilemma for the larger superpowers of the world’s system.
In fact the Church presents the very same dilemma to the world. We the people chosen out of the world to follow God to another land, likewise represent to this world a system of righteousness which the world despises.
God chose Abraham to separate himself from the pagan world and become the father of a new nation which would be founded upon the fact that there is a single Creator God. Israel became the embodiment of that nation. For Abraham’s obedience, God vowed that he would preserve that nation, and through that nation send the manifest deliverance from sins bond, which would be availed to all nations. By choosing to establish his seed among men, God chose all of mankind.
Isaiah 42:1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him; he shall bring forth judgement to the Gentiles Isaiah 43:9-11 Let all nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former things? Let them bring forth their witnesses; that they may be justified; or let them hear, and say, It is Truth.
Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe in me, and to understand that I am he; before me there was no God formed neither shall there be any after me.
I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no Saviour!
The world has chosen to follow after another god, yet the Lord God chose a people unto himself to be a Light unto the world. May the world take notice!
Every person has been chosen by God!
In the great choosing up question, it is really just this simple. God chooses You; on the other hand, the devil chooses against You! That makes a tied choice! You have the final vote and can decide the choice:
THANKS BE TO THE GOD OF ISRAEL FOR CHOOSING ME for His Kingdom!
THANKS BE TO THE GOD OF PALESTINE FOR CHOOSING MY BROTHERS ARABS for His Kingdom!
THANKS BE TO THE GOD OF ALL NATIONS FOR CHOOSING US for His Kingdom!
NOW IT IS THE TIME FOR YOU TO BE SAVED!
