Davids Kommentar: Zurück zu den biblischen Grundlagen Teil 5 Was bedeutet ‚Israel‘ ?

Richter 5:3  Hört, ihr Könige! Horcht auf, ihr Prinzen! Ich will dem HERRN, ich will ihm singen, will spielen dem HERRN, dem Gott Israels!

Der Gott der Bibel ist der Gott Israels. Darüber kann es keinen Zweifel geben. Es gibt hunderte von Versen, die das ganz klar aussagen.  Allerdings gibt es viel Verwirrung im Leib des Messias, was ‚Israel‘ heutzutage genau bedeutet. Um in der Lage zu sein, die Verse, die über Israel sprechen, voll und ganz zu verstehen, müssen wir sicher sein, über welches Israel der betreffende Vers handelt. Ich habe fünf verschiedene Bedeutungen zum Wort ‚Israel‘ in den Schriften  erkannt ………….

1:  Israel  = der Mensch Jakob , der seinen Namen in Israel geändert hat , nachdem er mit dem Engel gerungen hatte.  Genesis 32:29 Da sprach er: Nicht mehr Jakob soll dein Name sein, sondern Israel; denn du hast mit Gott und mit Menschen gekämpft und hast überwältigt.

2:   Israel  = die 12 Stämme  Jakobs/Israels – gewöhnlich heutzutage das ‚Jüdische Volk‘ genannt. Genesis 49:28  Alle diese sind die zwölf Stämme Israels, und das ist es, was ihr Vater zu ihnen redete. Und er segnete sie, jeden nach seinem Segen, mit dem er sie segnete.

3:   Israel  = das Land Israel   Hesekiel 7:2  So spricht der Herr, HERR, zum Land Israel: Ein Ende kommt, es kommt das Ende über die vier Ecken des Landes.  Das Land Israel sollte durch das Territorium vom Nil bis zum Euphrat angelegt sein.  Genesis 15:18 An jenem Tag schloss der HERR einen Bund mit Abram und sprach: deinen Nachkommen habe ich dieses Land gegeben, vom Strom Ägyptens an bis zum großen Strom, dem Euphratstrom —

4:  Israel  =  jede wiedergeborene Person ist in den Olivenbaum eingepflanzt   Römer 11:17 Wenn aber einige der Zweige herausgebrochen worden sind und du, der du ein wilder Ölbaum warst, unter sie eingepfropft und der Wurzel und der Fettigkeit des Ölbaums mit teilhaftig geworden bist   Epheser 2:19  So seid ihr nicht mehr Fremde und Nichtbürger, sondern ihr seid Mitbürger der Heiligen und Gottes Hausgenossen.

5:  Israel  = das künftige, aber bald kommende Königreich Gottes    diese abschließende Bedeutung von Israel ist prophetisch, denn es wird sich noch erfüllen.  Allerdings ist der moderne Staat Israel die aufkeimende Form des kommenden Königreiches.  Israel ist noch in unvollkommener Verfassung, aber der Schöpfer des Universums  der Gott Israels arbeitet daran, Seine Versprechen zur Wiederherstellung Seines Königreiches auf Erden zu erfüllen, und Jerusalem, die ungeteilte Hauptstadt von Israel unter Pkt. 3 ( das Land Israel)  ist der Standort des Geschehens.

Wenn wir nun die Schriften lesen, die von Israel handeln und berichten, können wir sicher sein, dass wir genau wissen, über welche Form von Israel da gesprochen wird und können dadurch besser das Wort des HERRN unterscheiden.

Eine andrer wichtiger Punkt betreffend Israel ist folgender:  der Zionismus und die Zionisten erhalten in diesen Tagen eine Menge schlechter Pressemitteilungen, aber die Namen ‚Israel‘ und ‚Zion‘ sind austauschbar  sie meinen genau die gleiche Sache. Psalm 149:2  Israel freue sich seines Schöpfers! Die Kinder Zions sollen jauchzen über ihren König.

Lassen sie uns fortfahren, zu Israel zu stehen und für Israel / Zion zu beten, besonders für die  Punkte 2, 3, 4 und 5.

Der Herr segne dich, während du Israel segnest, indem du für die Verteidigung ihres Rechtes einstehst, in dem Land zu leben, dass der Gott Israels dem Jüdischen Volk gegeben hat. Lasst uns beten, dass Israel zu seinem Gott umkehren möge. Schweige nicht, sondern lehre dies deine christlichen Geschwister, deinen Pastor und jeden, mit dem du darüber sprechen kannst. Lasst uns auch für den Durchbruch bei den Moslems beten, und bitte denkt daran, für alle Soldaten in der IDF zu beten – sie verteidigen und kämpfen für das Königreich Gottes.

THIS WEEK’S NEWS SELECTION

1.  Islamists Decades Long Goal  –  First the Saturday People, Then the Sunday People   Autz 7 News   May 16th
  
Islamic terror groups have had a favorite taunt for several decades which says, first the Saturday people, then the Sunday people. This means of course, first the Jews then the Christians will be targets for terrorist persecution, subjection and elimination. Persecution of Christians in the Islamic world is on its way to reaching epidemic proportions. In a recent Op-Ed piece in the Wall Street Journal, former Israeli ambassador to the US, Michael Oren, wrote that “As 800,000 Jews were once expelled from Arab countries, so are Christians being forced from lands they’ve inhabited for centuries” throughout the Middle East. Citing statistics, Oren wrote that Ramallah was 90% Christian before the 1948 War of Independence and Bethlehem was 80% Christian. Today Ramallah is a large Islamic city and Bethlehem’s Christians are near extinction. El Khader, which was the location of an attack against Christians participating in a church celebration days ago, and which is in the Gush Etzion region – is also a center of Muslim attacks on Jews. Cars traveling in the areal are frequently attacked by Muslim youths throwing rocks and even firebombs. Rock attacks perpetrated by Arab terrorists have killed and maimed many people, including babies.  Lets pray that the Christian world will wake up to the real plans of Islam

2.  Ethiopian Immigrant Wants to Rebuild the Temple  
A Jewish immigrant from Ethiopia is looking to sue Israel’s major banks for refusing to facilitate his efforts to raise money for the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem.  The man complains that Israel’s four largest banks have not allowed him to open accounts for taking in donations toward this goal, nor have they approved any of his loan requests.   He is seeking $35 million in damages, though the lawsuit is unlikely to get off the ground, as Israel’s legal system mandates a court fee equalling 2.5 percent of any large claims in order to deter frivolous lawsuits.   In his appeal to the court, the man recalled his arrival in the Land in 1991:  “We had tears in our eyes and we kissed the land when we arrived. But we later learned that the Temple was not yet built. Now God has revealed Himself to me and placed upon me the responsibility to rebuild the Temple. I have been collecting donations for this purpose, but I have been facing opposition to this plan from authorities.” While the court rejected the appeal to waive the 2.5 percent court fee, the judge was surprisingly sympathetic toward the end goal, writing, “At this point, we will have to be satisfied with the rebuilding of the Land of Israel, if not the Temple.”  Lets pray that the Temple will replace the Mosque before too long

3.  PM Netanyahu Nearly Fired Tzipi Livni      Ha Aretz News    May 22nd
    Justice Minister and chief Israeli negotiator Tzipi Livni nearly lost her job after she met with Mahmoud Abbas in London last week, the first meeting between the two since the April 29 breakdown of the latest round of peace talks.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s threat to fire Livni was first reported by Ma’ariv journalist Ben Caspit. He quoted sources saying that the prime minister had only found out about the meeting after the fact and was furious with her for going against Israeli cabinet policy to cease negotiations following the Hamas –  Fatah unity deal.   This contradicts a previous report that Livni had briefed Netanyahu on her plan to meet Abbas more than 24 hours the meeting took place. A senior official at the Prime Minister’s Office said at the time that Netanyahu stressed to Livni that she would be „representing only herself and not the Israeli government“ since the cabinet decided to suspend negotiations with the Palestinian Authority following the reconciliation agreements between Hamas and Fatah.  According to the report in Ma’ariv, Yesh Atid Chairman Yair Lapid urged Netanyahu to reconsider firing Livni, warning that it could bring about the government’s dissolution.  Please pray for unity in the Israeli leadership

4.   US Taking a Break from Peace Process     ICEJ News  May 22nd
US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters in Washington on Wednesday that Washington is taking a strategic break from refereeing negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority and that in the interim the two sides should work on coming up with their own proposals for an end to the conflict while avoiding „unhelpful“ moves. „It remains in the hands of the parties to take – make the choices necessary if they want to resume discussions,“ she said. „There’s a great deal going on in the world, and Secretary Kerry is focused on everything from Ukraine to South Sudan, all the issues we talk about in here every day. But we’re still engaged with the parties.“   Lets pray that the break is permanent

5.  Bulgarian PM Declares His Countries Friendship With Israel    ICEJ News  May 21st
Bulgarian Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski was in Jerusalem on Tuesday, where he told his hosts that Bulgaria considers Israel a close friend and ally and a stabilizing force in the Middle East. He added that he is very interested in strengthening ties in a number of areas including trade and people to people contacts. He also said he would like to see more cooperation and trade in agriculture, medicine, information technology, communications, tourism and defense   Please pray that your PM or President will follow suit

6.  Israeli Arabs Show Greater Affillation to the State    Israel Today News   May 20th
     Prof. Sammy Smooha of the University of Haifa released the results of a poll he recently oversaw on Monday, showing among other things a growing acceptance of Israel and a Jewish and democratic state among Israeli-Arabs. The study also showed decreasing rates of Israeli-Arabs who identify themselves as „Palestinians“ and high levels of satisfaction with their quality of life in Israel. „The Index of Arab-Jewish Relations in Israel“ survey, which Smooha has overseen annually since 2003, was undertaken in partnership with the Israel Democracy Institute.   Please pray that all the Israeli Arabs will come toYeshua

7. First Christian Arab Female IDF Officer Graduates    Israel Today News  May 19th
   Yasmin Chayach has become the first female Arabic-speaking Christian to complete the Israeli army’s officers course  Chayach was following family tradition by volunteering for service in the IDF, as her brother before her was also a proud Israeli soldier.  The Chayach siblings are part of a growing movement of young Arabic-speaking Israeli Christians who are choosing to do national service.  Many of these young people have come to understand, contrary to mainstream teachings in the Arab world, that Israel is not their enemy, but rather their safe haven. As such, they are increasingly eager to integrate with Israeli Jewish society and become strong, loyal and productive citizens of the state. Chayach’s promotion also further highlights the pervasive role of women in the Israeli military. A full 90 percent of all jobs and positions in the Israeli army are open to women.     Lets pray that more Christian Arabs will take leadership positions in the IDF
