If you would like, you can send that question in a u2u and I'll walk you through the idea. But like I said this thread is devoted to the Jewish nation being blessed by God almighty. And in the opening verse It says God will bless those who blesses Israel. Which the USA, France and Britain have done since before 1948 and have reaped the blessings. But now our governments are turning and so are our blessings.
You know, for some time, I have been questioning whether this statement is being read correctly.
This passage is usually used by people to justify anything Israel does, BUT...........reading this statement, it really sounds like God is strictly talking to and about Abram here, NOT about Israel, or Jerusalem.
Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
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 curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
This statement was made by God because eventually, the savior Jesus Christ would come from Abraham's line.
Sin is sin, and wrongdoing is wrongdoing no matter who is doing it. The Bible makes it very clear that God warned Israel about their behavior many times and Jerusalem was destroyed twice because Israel did wrong and kept doing wrong.
Israel and Jerusalem were never given a free pass by God because of who they are.
26Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
27A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:
28And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
