Scripture and World Events

I have been reading this book called "Eye to Eye: Facing the Consequences on Dividing Israel" by William Koenig. I first heard about this book from a guest preacher at our church, David Reagan, almost a year and half ago. I've had it on my Amazon wish list since then. And I finally broke down and ordered it.

Many of you know my fascination with End Times prophecy, and the premise of the book sorta relates. But before I get into the book, we'll start with some Scripture.

Genesis 12: 1-8 (This passage is when God sends Abram (Abraham) and the Jews to the Promised Land (present day Israel). Most important verse here is 3.)

1-Now the LORD said to Abram,
"Go forth from your country,
And from your relatives
And from your father's house,
To the land which I will show you;
2-And I will make you a great nation,
And I will bless you,
And make your name great;
And so you shall be a blessing;
3-And I will bless those who bless you,
And the one who curses you I will curse
And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed."

4-So Abram went forth as the LORD had spoken to him; and Lot went with him. Now Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.

5-Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his nephew, and all their possessions which they had accumulated, and the persons which they had acquired in Haran, and they set out for the land of Canaan; thus they came to the land of Canaan.

6-Abram passed through the land as far as the site of Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. Now the Canaanite was then in the land.

7-The LORD appeared to Abram and said, "To your descendants I will give this land " So he built an altar there to the LORD who had appeared to him.

8-Then he proceeded from there to the mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; and there he built an altar to the LORD and called upon the name of the LORD.

More tomorrow on why Israel belongs to the Jews and the Jews alone.
