And from the Psalmist we hear a reminder, that unique relationship is the basis for the Psalmist’s prayer for help:
God has promised Israel and to all those who have come to Him through faith in Yeshua, that His salvation and righteousness will never fail. Despite challenges to our families, to our possessions and even to our lives, He will ultimately be victorious.
This separation of the Jews was crucial, because by the fourth plague, God made a distinction between people. While the rest of Egypt suffered from the swarms of flies, the Jewish people in Goshen were untouched.
God made a promise of land to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants. While the promise was unconditional, Israel’s protection and possession of the land depended on her obedience.
The Seed of the woman was to have a unique birth and specific family tree. Step one was to create a specific people from whom Yeshua would descend. But mankind had a different agenda, an agenda that is reemerging today – a “New World Order” to unite all peoples. But out of all the nations of the world, God chose Israel for a special purpose and destiny.
