how deep the love

Today, focus is upon whether or not GOD “hates” and rejects Jewish people.  Many Christians feel the Jews annulled the covenant of Moses by demanding that the world—symbolized in the Roman governor, Pontius Pilate—condemn and crucify Jesus upon the cross.  Others are convinced that their emphasis as a people has always been upon things carnal, material, and social such that they now are Jews only as an ethnic, political, and secular group that no longer exists as sanctified and set apart under divine law, or covenant with divinity.  Jews, sinners, and unbelievers who reject Jesus do so because they lack experience and sacred knowledge, necessary divine substance from the makeup of GOD (such as faith, holiness, longsuffering, vision, and wisdom), and correct understanding of sacred events, prophecy, and the operations of GOD on behalf of the universe.  Included are definitions, lifestyles, meanings, and values that give expression to the will of GOD, rather than the awareness and self-will of the created beings and living creatures Deity has put forth.  The writer at “Yahoo!7 Answers (Australia)” using the ID “Kishore” (Level 5 with 5,497 points, a member since May 23, 2012) posted the following:

 

Does God hate Jews because they reject Jesus?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.  Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father:  he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.  Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.  (1st John 2:  22-24, King James Version, KJV)

“Kishore”, no; GOD does not “hate” Jews.  Many mature Christian believers agree that GOD continues to honor his word to Jewish people up to this very hour; however, like others around the world, all Jews do not correctly acknowledge and pursue their proper place with our Creator.  Throughout its history the church of Jesus Christ has been careful to demonstrate and proclaim the commitment and faithfulness of divinity to mankind and all Creation.  The relationships provided for the sons and daughters of Adam upon the earth have included covenant partnership, existence as a divine kingdom, service as priests, prophets, and kings as well as adoption to be children of GOD and heirs of the Father in heaven.  The offspring of Adam and Eve have been given special authority, duties, inheritance, instruction, opportunities, and privileges that supply them with sacred knowledge, divine substance from the makeup of GOD, and distinct practices (we say, sacraments).  As the offspring of Abraham (called “the Friend of GOD”) and his son Isaac, and grandson Jacob, the 12 tribes of Israel were chosen to make divinity knowable and known to all the earth.  While they appear having blessing and favor as a tool for divine revelation, the Jewish people also have been used to demonstrate divine judgment with righteousness, wisdom, and the wrath of GOD against sin.  More importantly, the Jews have served (1) as a device for the appearance of GOD using flesh and blood as a man, Jesus Christ; (2) a mechanism to bring about Christ being destroyed upon the cross as an embodiment of sin (in both cases we say, Incarnation); and (3) a stable framework for the establishment of rebirth, repentance, and “new creation” for mankind through the imparted, indwelling Spirit from GOD (we say, the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Spirit of Truth).  Consider again how this is stated using language from the holy writings:

(1.)  Deuteronomy 7:  6-10, King James Version (KJV):  7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:  8 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.  9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;  10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them:  he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.

(2.)  Jeremiah 31:  31-33, KJV:  31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:  32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:  33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

(3.)  Romans 10:  2-3, KJV:  2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.  3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

(4.)  Psalms 94:  14-15, KJV:  14 For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.  15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness:  and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

There is far more to be said, carefully examined, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (5.)  Romans 9:  26-33, KJV:  26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.  27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:  28 For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness:  because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.  29 And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.  30 What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.  31 But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.  32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;  33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence:  and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
