Although there are other resources on this site that talk about this subject in greater detail, I wanted to do a podcast episode on the true meaning of Israel for the sake of many New Age Christians who aren’t really aware of this major topic inside of the Christian world. The Christian Church spends millions and millions of dollars every year in efforts to support Israel as the ‘chosen people of God’, and for the life of me, I have no idea why.
Let me first say… I love Israel. Why? Because they exist. Loving conscious beings isn’t that difficult actually. Still, I don’t love them any more or less than I love China. I don’t love Jews any more or less than I love Muslims. I love Israel and Jews because they are human, not because they are ‘chosen’.
Do I believe that Abraham and the nation of Israel WERE chosen? Yes.
Do I believe that modern-day Israel is STILL chosen? Sure. And so is China, and Iran, and Australia, and every other nation. Christ died for the sins of the WHOLE WORLD, not just yours and mine only (1 John 2:2). We’re ALL chosen now.
Which leads to another question… Why WAS Israel chosen? For what? For how long? When? How? … and so on.
In this episode we cover:
- What Abraham was originally promised
- What historical Israel was really chosen for
- The modern views of Israel according to some Christian perspectives
- What people are still waiting for Israel to accomplish
- What Israel already accomplished
- The Kingdom showed up with its King, 2000 years ago
