    Jesus came to the Jews first with the message of grace because of the promise to Abraham. Not saying he wasn't going to non-Jews later on. His land by Jerusalem has been divided and is now being occupied by Palestinians which people now want to permanently give the rest away. Every people and nation is to benefit from this promise, Israel. Those that go against, they will be cursed. God viewed Abraham's faith as righteousness. In other words, even though Abraham was not perfect, God regarded him as a righteous man because of his strong faith in God. It's the same with us. People with strong faith in God are blessed and under his righteousness love. Those without faith in God are under his curse. They do not receive his blessings. All who have Christ are apart of Abraham's seed. The reason why God chose Abraham is because he was so obedient. Jesus be with you all (Galatians:3:26-29)

    IS IT POSSIBLE FOR ISRAEL TO DEFEND ITSELF WITH THE SAME PEOPLE THAT SEEKS IT'S DESTRUCTION THROUGH TERRORISM BY YOKING TOGETHER WITH MURDERS. WHEN SOMEONE IS NOT GETTING THEIR WAY AND THEY DECIDE TO ALLOW MISSILES TO BE THROWN. HOW MUCH CONTROL DO WE THINK THEY WILL ACTUALLY HAVE ONCE THEY HAVE MORE ACCESS TO WEAPONS AND LAND?
