This is actual, rarely known official doctrine of both the Roman Catholic and Church Of England...

1. The Jews WERE chosen by be His people.

2.The Jews WERE SACKED by God as His chosen people in 1040AD.

In 1040AD, an angel of the Lord appeared and conveyed to St Edward the Confessor that the Jews were now sacked as God's people and the English were now appointed instead.


Now whilst this might seem a hoot, there is also a more creepy aspect to this. The Angel of 1040 ALSO instructed St Edward to build his capital upon Thorny Island, marshy island, a few miles upstream to the West of London (as it was then) where no-one lived and was covered in weeds and bushes. St Edward complied and built a church (also known then as a Minster) and a small palace on this site in 1041AD. Amongst other prophecies, the Angel also told St Edward that if he did so, it would one day be the capital of the most powerful empire that the world would ever see.

So what happened?

The church on Thorny Island (to the west of London) became known as "Westminster" and became the site of the Houses Of Parliament which would, by the turn of the 20th Century, run 1/3 of the globe, the largest empire in history.

Yup. The torch of light is passed on from Eon to Eon.

If a deity chose a small group of people to be above the rest and have license to kill, steal, enslave; then that deity is a pos. Creating an elite bully class to feed off the rest, a cosmic mega parasite if you will, is not my idea of the action a supposed just, loving and wise god would take.

By the way, was your post serious or did if fall squarely on the "T" category?

Many people think they've been chosen by God for all sorts of things. Many people around you who seem not religious believe it too, secretly.

There are many people who are God's Chosen on this planet.

You are exactly right. People in the religion of Judaism reject Jesus as the Messiah, and therefore do not have God.
Jews didn't write the Old Testament - Hebrew/Israelites did.
12 tribes were known as Israel.
Later split into two kingdoms - House of Israel and House of Judah.
God divorced the House of Israel in 722BC leaving only the House of Judah.
"Jew" in the Bible means Judean/Judahite/someone from Judea/House of Judah.
Jesus came and preached to Judea first, some accepted Him, most did not.
Jesus declared their House desolate before His death. Jerusalem was sacked in 70 AD in judgement.
The New Covenant was then preached to the other tribes (House of Israel) which had been divorced and strangers seeking God.

God's Elect are among those who accept Jesus as the Saviour/Messiah. They are generally called Christians.

Why do we have Jews sitting in a country called Israel? Deceit.
Why do we have Christians not accepting that they probably descend from true Israel? Deceit.

And if you still cannot figure out why the western Christian professing nations have been made godless through communist propaganda and the overturning of every single "biblical" moral laws, then Heaven help us considering foreign powers come against true Israel in the end times....that's the western Christian professing nations. So look around. Many "Christians" keep blessing a Jewish state in the Middle East, when they should be blessing true Israel, who all accept Jesus as the Saviour. And many Atheists, descended from Christian parents or grandparents who were true Christians,, clap gleefully at the eradication of Gods laws not realising that their judgement is coming and will be based on Gods laws written in their hearts, as promised as descendants. When the nations come against us, which side will you be on?

Will you be the blinded because you couldn't bother to see how propaganda works?

1963 Confressional Records - 45 steps to Communism

Step 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

Step 24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

Step 25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

Step 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

Step 27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch." 

Step 28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

Step 40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
Step 41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

If this does not stop one person dead in their tracks to realise how a disbelief in God can be done through concerted effort by a completely controlled media.... 1963. And all have been accomplished. God has been purposefully made the ogre whilst Satan has given you the Mark of humanism (6 man, triple is complete).

I believe in God and Jesus.

I doubt that God has chosen anyone, above anyone else....

The Jews deny Jesus, therefore they can comfortably deny the Golden Rule.

Don't like the Jewish religion? You are branded a Nazi and anti-semite.

The Jews know nothing about treating their neighbors with with respect and love.

Look at how everyone surrounding Israel hates them.
Look at how the Jews have been pushed out of country after country.

The Jews are not treated poorly because of their self described chosen status.

The Jews are treated poorly because they don't treat their neighbors well.

Count me in the 30% that doesn't believe the Jews are any better than anyone else.

well we know what happens everytime 6 million of them get in one spot

The State of Israel has a population of approximately 7,798,600 inhabitants as of September 2011.[1] 75.3% of them are Jewish (about 5,865,300 individuals), 20.5% are Arabs (About 1,597,300 individuals), while the remaining 4.3% (about 318,200 individuals) are defined as "others"

Thats right...Bar-B-Que!

Israel’s Declining Sperm Quality Tied to Depleted Uranium Exposure....
...With the latest news, Israel may soon lose the need to create and seek out enemies; with a little help from the U.S. they did this to themselves.

I guess its cheaper to cook the little guys instead of the grown bodies

Compare these 'statistics' to similar surveys made in the 60, 70's and 80's, which had the vast majority of the population indifferent to religion and questions of God.

What a dramatic turn around.

This is awesome news...

Thanks for the research vitchillo!

The records of discussions that led up to the final text of the Balfour Declaration clarifies some details of its wording. The phrase "national home" was intentionally used instead of "state" because of opposition to the Zionist program within the British Cabinet. Both the Zionist Organization and the British government devoted efforts over the following decades, including Winston Churchill's 1922 White Paper, to denying that a state was the intention.[6] However, in private, many British officials agreed with the interpretation of the Zionists that a state would be established when a Jewish majority was achieved.[7]

The initial draft of the declaration, contained in a letter sent by Rothschild to Balfour, referred to the principle "that Palestine should be reconstituted as the National Home of the Jewish people."[8] In the final text, the word that was replaced with in to avoid committing the entirety of Palestine to this purpose. Similarly, an early draft did not include the commitment that nothing should be done which might prejudice the rights of the non-Jewish communities. These changes came about partly as the result of the urgings of Edwin Samuel Montagu, an influential anti-Zionist Jew and secretary of state for India, who was concerned that the declaration without those changes could result in increased anti-Semitic persecution. The draft was circulated and during October the government received replies from various representatives of the Jewish community. Lord Rothschild took exception to the new proviso on the basis that it presupposed the possibility of a danger to non-Zionists, which he denied.[9]


This essentially states that Israel was directly inspired by Rothschild,
At least, thats how it reads to me anyways.
How bout that. (manipulation of religion at its finest, hate propaganda as well). Too many dots lining up.
Israel is described as a man to me, not a land. Just saying.

The Children of Israel were composed of twelve tribes, each one a son of Jacob/Israel (and later on, Josephs two sons Manasseh and Ephraim were made 'like Simeon and Levi' to Jacob, i.e they became like the sons of Israel, and therefore received a portion with the other 10 sons of Jacob.

You should read the Bible before you decide to make a comment like that.

The twelve tribes made up the land of Israel. If you read the Bible, the term comes up again and again.

As for Rothschild directly inspiring the founding of modern Israel... Wow... What can one say to such ignorance? Read a book on Zionism. The house of Rothschild, both its English and German branches, RESISTED the idea of a state for the Jews in Palestine. The only real backers of the project were moderately wealthy Jews and the proletariat; all the big bankers, the Rothschilds, Warburgs, Schiffs, Montefiores etc, none of them wanted a thing to do with a national project for the Jews.

At most, they gave money for emigration, to build farms etc... But not one of the big Jewish bankers were interested in Zionism in it's early days. Not until the early 20th century,and especially after the holocaust, were the major powers in the Jewish community mobilized.

I found the declaration interesting, that is all.
Im not going to have some sort of religious argument about it either. I have my own thoughts on that so i'll leave them for another time.
Must be reading it wrong or something *shrug*

Who's talking about religion? I merely pointed out for you what it says in the Bible. Israel as a name, is mentioned at most 10 times. Israel as a land (Eretz Yisrael) is mentioned hundreds of times.

And that Rothschild thing, I don't know why you wrote that, or even more so, why I even bothered to dignify that with a response.

Alas, I'm bored.

Jews are considered the "chosen" people for two reasons.

One, God "chose" a rather small group of people in a small land in order to send his son, Jesus, to walk the earth and teach them about God. They were "chosen" to spread God's word. I'm guessing the smaller the group, the easier it was to spread the message at that time and the less it would be corrupted and misinterpreted.

Second, God "chose" them to make an example out of them.

I think he's doing a pretty good job, don't you? What other group of people do you hear so much about? What other group has become so prosperous for being so small? What other group is totally surrounded and threatened on a daily basis by it's enemies, yet manages to survive throughout the ages, despite it's size?

This is why God "chose" them. To set an example. No matter how small you may be, God has the power to sustain you and protect you from anything you face, and he will prove it.

Here's a look at the past fulfilled prophecies about Israel in the Bible, as well as the ones yet to come. There's a "part 1" and "part 2" on Israel.

Edit Add: As being the ones for God to "make an example", remember he's allowed them to be persecuted, separated, etc. too, yet the people as a whole continue to survive. Let's face it, he hasn't always shown them favor in order to make an example out of them.
edit on 27-1-2012 by Deetermined because: (no reason given)

Being "chosen" also came with a terrible burden. Many of them wish they never recieved and followed Yah in the first place. No other people has been enslaved, exiled, hunted, exterminated, or hated in all the world worse except maybe the christians. There is always a terrible price to pay for being God's chosen people and the christians got a taste of that price for 1700 years for following the Messiah and true King of Israel that even the jews denied. No one else in all the universe can beat the pride out of you like the LORD can. Many times the Israelites tore their clothes off and put on sack cloth (burlap) and poured dirt all over themselves and in their hair in sorrow and despair.

People that scoff and make fun of us have no clue about the hell we have endured for his love.

If you asked Christians if they thought the Jews were God's chosen people, I bet a lot would say yes.

It's the same thing with the catholic church thinking it is the only valid faith and means of salvation. Really it's not their fault.
reply to post by casenately

Actually, that thought is not just prevalent in Catholicism and Judaism. Most major religions believes the same thing:

"Born again Protestants" believe that you can not be "saved" unless you are "born again".


And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers. Quran 3:85


He it is Who sent His Messenger with the guidance and the true religion that He may make it prevail over all the religions; and Allah is enough for a witness. Quran 48:28

The bottom line, though, is that as long as those beliefs don't impinge upon others, it is their right to believe what they wish. It is only when they use such belief in exclusive-ism that there becomes a problem.

Yes, people do start wars over religion, but they also start wars over politics, water rights, ideologies, money, and just about anything else that you can think of, including of course, the prevalent belief by the last two administrations that they have a divine right to wage preemptive wars.
