Scriptures we stand on for our beliefs
about Israel & the Jews

Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?
2 The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One. 3 "Let us break their chains," they say, "and throw off their fetters."
4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. 5 Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, 6 "I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill." 7 be warned, you rulers of the earth.  8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. 9 You will rule them with an iron scepter; you will dash them to pieces like pottery." 10 Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him. Psalm 2:1-12  NIV

Israel's stretching as far as the Euphrates
Deutoronomy 1:7 Break camp and advance into the hill country of the Amorites; go to all the neighboring peoples in the Arabah, in the mountains, in the western foothills, in the Negev and along the coast, to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, as far as the great river, the Euphrates. 8 See, I have given you this land. Go in and take possession of the land that the LORD swore he would give to your fathers--to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob--and to their descendants after them. 8 See, I have given you this land. Go in and take possession of the land that the LORD swore he would give to your fathers--to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob--and to their descendants after them."
Deutoronomy 11:24 Every place where you set your foot will be yours: Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the Euphrates River to the western sea.
Joshua 1:3 I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. 4 Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, to the Euphrates--all the Hittite country--to the Great Sea on the west.
Psalm 80:8 You brought a vine out of Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it. 9 You cleared the ground for it, and it took root and filled the land. 10 The mountains were covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches. 11 It sent out its boughs to the Sea, its shoots as far as the River.

Negotiate with people in the Land (Arabs presently) or Divide the land
"The Commandment to Possess the Land"
"And when the L-rd thy G-d shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them." Deuteronomy VII:2. Gary M. Cooperberg. Torah portion (August 3, 2000) tells us how to make peace with our Arab neighbors.

Exodus 23:31 "...I will hand hand over to you the people who live in the land and you will drive them out before you. 32 Do not make a covenant with them or with their gods."
Exodus 34:12 Be careful not to make a treaty with those who live in the land where you are going, or they will be a snare among you.
Exodus 34:15 "Be careful not to make a treaty with those who live in the land; for when they prostitute themselves to their gods and sacrifice to them, they will invite you and you will eat their sacrifices.

Deuteronomy 7:2 And when the LORD your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.
Jeremiah 11:1 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: 2 "Listen to the terms of this covenant and tell them to the people of Judah and to those who live in Jerusalem. 3 Tell them that this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Cursed is the man who does not obey the terms of this covenant-- 4 the terms I commanded your forefathers when I brought them out of Egypt, out of the iron-smelting furnace.' I said, 'Obey me and do everything I command you, and you will be my people, and I will be your God. 5 Then I will fulfill the oath I swore to your forefathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey'--the land you possess today." NIV

The Nation of Israel, for the past 100 years, has been under conquest, under the yoke of a foreign culture. They are all like 'babies who were captured,' they don't even realize how this foreign culture is choking them. Sha'ul Nir, father-in-law of Netanel [Nati] Ozeri killed in Hevron. Arutz-7 News: Monday, Jan. 20, 2003
Leviticus. 25:23 The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is Mine and you are but aliens and My tenants
Deuteronomy 17:1 When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations--the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, seven nations larger and bigger than you-- 2 and when the LORD your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.
Deuteronomy 23:6 Do not seek a treaty of friendship with them as long as you live - Ammonite or Moabite or any of their descendants.
Deuteronomy 33: 28 So Israel will live in safety ALONE (without Islamic fanatics); Jacob's spring is secure in a land of grain and new wine, where the heavens drop dew. Deuteronomy 33: 29 Blessed are you, O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD? He is your shield and helper and your glorious sword. Your enemies will cower before you, and you will trample down their high places (Islamic minarettes, obelisks, etc.). NIV

Ezra 9:12 Therefore, do not give your daughters in marriage to their sons or take their daughters for your sons. Do not seek a treaty of friendship with them at any time, that you may be strong and eat the good things of the land and leave it to your children as an everlasting inheritance.'
Isaiah 30:1 "Woe to the obstinate children," declares the LORD, "to those who carry out plans that are not mine, forming an alliance, but not by my Spirit, heaping sin upon sin;

An example of the disaster a treaty can turn into was seen with the Gibeonites:
Joshua 9:16 Three days after they made the treaty with the Gibeonites, the Israelites heard that they were neighbors, living near them -[Not far away as they had pretended].
I Samuel 11:1 Nahash the Ammonite went up and besieged Jabesh Gilead. And all the men of Jabesh said to him, "Make a treaty with us, and we will be subject to you.2 But Nahash the Ammonite replied, "I will make a treaty with you only on the condition that I gouge out the right eye of every one of you and so bring disgrace on all Israel.
Conversely, the god (allah) of Islam also doesn't want a divided Palestine (as the territory of Israel was called until 1948). That is why the Arabs in Israel have not since the land was mandated to Israel in 1920, signed any agreement that gives them part of the land. They want it all, and will keep on fighting until they have it all. A short while before the current violence, in the days following [the Barak-Arafat-Clinton summit at Camp David, the official Palestinian Authority TV broadcast the sermon of Sheikh Youssuf Abu Sneinah, the official preacher at the Al-Aqza mosque: "The Islamic Land of Palestine is one and cannot be divided. There is no difference between Haifa and Nablus, Lod and Ramallah, Jerusalem and Nazareth or Gaza and Ashkelon. Palestine is Wakf land that belongs to Muslims throughout the world and no one has the right to give it up or to forsake it. Whoever does this is a traitor to the trust and is nothing but a loathsome criminal whose end shall be in hell." Eli Kamir, Ma'ariv, April 2, 2002

The disaster the Oslo Treaty has turned into is reflected by:
Isaiah 33:7 Look, their brave men cry aloud in the streets; the envoys of peace weep bitterly. 8 The highways are deserted, no travelers are on the roads. The treaty is broken, its witnesses are despised, no one is respected.

Jan Willem van der Hoeven, Director of the International Christian Zionist Center  in Jerusalem, wrote (after the assassination of Minister Rachavan Zeevi):
"It is as if G-d has had to shake Israel awake that unless they will now deal with this scourge of terror and bring it forcefully to a halt, even as the US government has decided to do, that there will be no respite from it.

Just as President Bush's government announced in relation to the Taliban, no treaty or negotiations will do.

This is also the lesson from the Bible, which tells us that when the weak, immoral king of Israel, Ahab, made a treaty with the cruel Syrian king Ben Hadad,the Lord said to him: "Thus says the Lord: Because you have let slip out of your hand a man whom I appointed to utter destruction, therefore your life shall go for his life, and your people for his people."(See 1 Kings 20: 9-43)

Divide Land
Joel 3:2 I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.

Gaza, that Prime Minister Sharon "tried" to give to the Muslim Arabs by means of a unilateral disengagement [withdrawal] in 2004, is part of Judah's tribal land [also of king David, Messiah's eternal kingdom]. Nobody, therefore, has the right to overrule the God of Israel by giving it away. This, of course, goes for land anywhere west of the Jordan River, owned or to be owned by foreigners, viz. non-Jews (not grafted into Israel - Rom 11:19; Eph 2:11), Arabs, churches. Land should revert back to Jews after set periods as set out in the Laws given to Moses. 
Lev 25:8 "Every fiftieth year, 9 on the Day of Atonement, let the trumpets blow loud and long throughout the land. 10 For the fiftieth year shall be holy, a time to proclaim liberty throughout the land to all enslaved debtors, and a time for the canceling of all public and private debts. It shall be a year when all the family estates sold to others shall be returned to the original owners or their heirs. ...23 And remember, the land is mine, so you may not sell it permanently. You are merely my tenants and sharecroppers! TLB

Wealth
Deuteronomy 8:18 But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.
Isaiah 60:5 Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come.
Isaiah 60:9 Surely the islands look to me; in the lead are the ships of Tarshish, bringing your sons from afar, with their silver and gold, to the honor of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor

Isaiah 60:11 Your gates (O Israel) will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night, so that men may bring you the wealth of the nations!

FALSE Peace
Jeremiah 6:14 They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. 'Peace, peace,' they say, when there is no peace. 15 Are they ashamed of their loathsome conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush. So they will fall among the fallen;*~* they will be brought down when I punish them," says the LORD.
Ezekiel 7:25
When terror comes, they will seek peace, but there will be none.
Ezekiel 13:10
"'Because they lead my people astray, saying, "Peace," when there is no peace, and because, when a flimsy wall is built, they cover it with whitewash. 11 therefore tell those who cover it with whitewash that it is going to fall. Rain will come in torrents, and I will send hailstones hurtling down, and violent winds will burst forth. 12 When the wall collapses, will people not ask you, "Where is the whitewash you covered it with?" 13 "`Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: In my wrath I will unleash a violent wind, and in my anger hailstones and torrents of rain will fall with destructive fury. 14 I will tear down the wall you have covered with whitewash and will level it to the ground so that its foundation will be laid bare. When it falls, you will be destroyed in it;*~* and you will know that I am the LORD.

*~* "So they will fall among the fallen;" and "you will be destroyed in it," show that those who perpetrate the false peace will be brought down when their efforts are foiled - like in April 2002, when the OSLO "abomination," Arafat and his gang of terrorists, and Israel's leftists all went down at the same time!

ANGEL (&/or MESSIAH) OF GOD = GOD
Genesis 16:9
Then the angel of the LORD told her, "Go back to your mistress and submit to her." 10 The angel added, "I will so increase your descendants that they will be too numerous to count." 11 The angel of the LORD also said to her: "You are now with child and you will have a son. You shall name him Ishmael, for the LORD has heard of your misery. 12 He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers." 13 She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: "You are the God who sees me," for she said, "I have now seen the One who sees me." 14 That is why the well was called Beer Lahai Roi; it is still there, between Kadesh and Bered.

Genesis 16:15 The angel of the LORD called to Abraham from heaven a second time 16 and said, "I swear by myself, declares the LORD, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 I will surely bless you.
Genesis 48:15 Then he blessed Joseph and said, "May the God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the God who has been my shepherd all my life to this day, 16 the Angel who has delivered me from all harm --may he bless these boys. May they be called by my name and the names of my fathers Abraham and Isaac, and may they increase greatly upon the earth." NIV
Exodus 3:2 There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. 3 So Moses thought, "I will go over and see this strange sight--why the bush does not burn up." 4 When the LORD saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, "Moses! Moses!" And Moses said, "Here I am." 5 "Do not come any closer," God said. "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground."
Exodus 23:20 "See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared. 21 Pay attention to him and listen to what he says. Do not rebel against him; he will not forgive your rebellion, since my Name is in him.
Judges 6:12 When the angel of the LORD appeared to Gideon, he said, "The LORD is with you, mighty warrior." ... 14 The LORD turned to him and said, "Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian's hand. Am I not sending you?" NIV

The THREE MEN who visited Abraham were called angels, but one was definitely God or Messiah:
Genesis 18:2 Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground. 3 He said, "If I have found favor in your eyes, my lord, do not pass your servant by. 4 Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree...9 "Where is your wife Sarah?" they asked him. "There, in the tent," he said. 10 Then the LORD said, "I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son." Now Sarah was listening at the entrance to the tent, which was behind him.

The other angels reported to him:
Zechariah 1:8 In a vision during the night, I saw a man sitting on a red horse that was standing among some myrtle trees in a small valley. Behind him were red, brown, and white horses, each with its own rider. 9 I asked the angel who was talking with me, “My lord, what are all those horses for?”
“I will show you,” the angel replied.
10 So the man standing among the myrtle trees explained, “They are the ones the Lord has sent out to patrol the earth.”11 Then the other riders reported to the angel of the Lord, who was standing among the myrtle trees, “We have patrolled the earth, and the whole earth is at peace.”
12 Upon hearing this, the angel of the Lord prayed this prayer: “O Lord Almighty, for seventy years now you have been angry with Jerusalem and the towns of Judah. How long will it be until you again show mercy to them?” 13 And the Lord spoke kind and comforting words to the angel who talked with me.
14 Then the angel said to me, “Shout this message for all to hear: ‘This is what the Lord Almighty says: My love for Jerusalem and Mount Zion is passionate and strong. 15 But I am very angry with the other nations that enjoy peace and security. I was only a little angry with my people, but the nations punished them far beyond my intentions.
16 “ ‘Therefore, this is what the Lord says: I have returned to show mercy to Jerusalem. My Temple will be rebuilt, says the Lord Almighty, and plans will be made for the reconstruction of Jerusalem.’ 17 Say this also: ‘This is what the Lord Almighty says: The towns of Israel will again overflow with prosperity, and the Lord will again comfort Zion and choose Jerusalem as his own.’"
Zechariah 12:8 On that day the Lord will defend the people of Jerusalem; the weakest among them will be as mighty as King David! And the royal descendants will be like God, like the angel of the Lord who goes before them! 9 For my plan is to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Democracy
Isaiah 65:11 (NIV) "But as for you who forsake the LORD and forget my holy mountain, who spread a table for Fortune and fill bowls of mixed wine for Destiny, 12 I will destine you for the sword, and you will all bend down for the slaughter; for I called but you did not answer, I spoke but you did not listen. You did evil in my sight and chose what displeases me." (Leftists?)
(KJ)11 But ye are they that forsake the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop (pack), and that furnish the drink offering unto that number (majority). (Like the people telling Aaron to make them gods).  

Analysis:
  • "forsake the LORD and forget my holy mountain," is typical of the leftist (socialist) leaders of Israel who don't care about God, and just gave control of the Temple Mount back to the Moslems after conquering it in 1967*~*- and passing the Law for the Protection of holy places that same year out of respect of all religions as if they're all the same - negating the fact that Israel has her own God, who is also the only TRUE God. (Psalm 81:9 You shall have no foreign god among you...!!)

  • "troop or pack" symbolize a collection of people who are a majority (that number - not tied together by their belief in the God of Israel or being His people) From the NIV translation we see it's a mixed bunch, like Jews, Arabs, etc. and that Fortune (material benefit) is very much part of their agenda - like Israeli and world leaders who promote the OSLO process for profit because of their business ties with Arabs or their dependence on Arab oil.
    *~* Apparently, misguided Rabbis also indicated that they don't care about the Temple Mount because it wasn't sanctified for prayer to the God of Israel. See Rabbis' lame attitude
