Point 2. The Pivot and the Client Nation.
The prosperity and blessing in a client nation does not occur through Christian activism, such as cleaning up the devil's world, or putting aside our doctrinal beliefs, but godly prosperity depends upon those believers who are a part of the pivot and who execute the PPOG.
The pivot is defined as a group of believers from all different denominations who have PVTD and who execute the spiritual life that God has ordained for them to live in.
The word white is the plural noun of leukos which means whites or the uniform of glory worn over the resurrection body for the overcomers or the winner believers.
All believers are worthy at the moment of salvation because all believers receive the righteousness of God the Father and God the Son.
When believers live in that righteousness through the power of God the Holy Spirit they live in experiential righteousness and become worthy in time.
"I will not erase his name or blot out his title from the book of life" = God willed for all believers to be winners and receive a divine title of reward but not all believers fulfill that will.
Under election, God willed His highest and best for all believers but not all believers receive that highest and best.
It is the pivot of mature believers that establishes the client nation and guarantees its perpetuation in every generation.
One of the major functions of believers who are part of the client nation it to promote Zionism, which means Israel has a right to be a nation and to reject any form of anti-Semitism, which it to reject the Jews and the nation of Israel.
Some nations are being blessed because of GEN 12:2-3, and some are not.
GEN 12:2-3, 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; 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 shall be blessed."
Once Abram's name was changed to Abraham, then the blessing of God was not only to be upon Abraham as the new father of the new race called the Jews but the blessing of God would also be upon those who would bless the seed of Abraham who are the Jews.
GEN 26:12 , we see this blessing of Abraham was passed down to his son Isaac, who later on passed the blessing down to his son Jacob.
When God appears throughout the Bible, the blessing of Abraham is found in one of the titles of God when he says "I am the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
GEN 15:6 Then he [Abraham] believed in the Lord; and He reckoned it to him as righteousness.
Those who bless Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their descendants will be blessed by God, those who do not will be under a curse.
Those who bless us will also be blessed and those who curse us will also be cursed since the promise of God to Abraham was not only passed down to Isaac and Jacob, but all the way to us, as children of Abraham.
Being anti-Semitic (anti-Jew) is evil and brings upon individuals and nations self-destruction.
The first is opposition to Israel as a nation, to her foreign policy, or to what is known as Zionism, as a political and religious ideology, without necessarily being inspired by prejudice.
The second category of hostility toward the Jews is “normal” prejudice, which is often directed against those of another tribe, another race, another faith, or from another place.
All prejudice is evil and satanic, it is of the devil; JAM 3:14-16.
The third category of enmity portrays the Jew as the root of virtually all evil in the world, engaged in an eternal and universal conspiracy, to infiltrate, corrupt, and ultimately rule the gentile world.
This third category includes the desire of the anti-Semite to castigate, eliminate, and finally to physically exterminate the Jew.
1. The Abrahamic Covenant defines the race for client nation Israel. Abraham became a Jew at age 99; GEN 12:1‑3, 13:15‑16, 15:18, 22:15‑18, 26:3‑4.
4. The New Covenant defines the restoration of the client nation Israel at the Second Advent and its millennial modus operandi, JER 31:31‑34.
Satan does not want God to be able to keep His word --to keep His promises - he wants to try to make God a liar.
People "may legitimately differ" with the foreign policy of Israel or reject an individual Jew, as long as that disagreement or rejection is not motivated by anti-Semitism.
In 1975 the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution defining Zionism as a “form of racism and racial discrimination.”
Racism is the universal description that other nations accuse the Jews of being.
They say that the Jews are trying to convey an inherent superiority of their race over another.
The racism label has since been used against the Jews by saying Israel hate governments and other nations throughout the world.
Ever since the Jews were established as a national entity in 1948, Israel has been forced into war, compelled to fight or be driven into the sea.
Throughout the 1980’s, many Western governments have demanded that Israel conform to standards of behavior appropriate to a nation at peace in their opinion.
These same nations if faced with similar threats of annihilation would react a lot worse than Israel, who are not really reacting but protecting their nation.
In less serious conflicts certain countries have shown even less restraint toward their enemies than Israel now displays toward the
Palestinians and the Arab world.
They want Israel’s to restrain themselves as they themselves would never retrain themselves under the same type of circumstances, revealing their hypocrisy and double standards.
They want Israel to comply with a norm of conduct that other governments would not require of themselves.
The hypocrisy of castigating Israel for their behavior of protecting themselves as a nation and as a people called the Jews is acceptable to these nations as if they were the very righteous ones from God themselves.
Even the world press spends a disproportionate amount of time scrutinizing Israel.
Minor skirmishes between Israel and her Arab neighbors are extensively reported, while the war between Iraq and Iran, one of the bloodiest in this century with over a million casualties, passed with far less attention.
During 1989 and 1990, there was a great Palestinian uprising against Israel, news services were quick to report any Palestinian killed by Israelis.
The fact that more Palestinians have died at the hands of their brother Palestinians than by the Israelis was buried on a back page or ignored entirely.
Bernard Lewis observes that the Arab war against Israel has become generalized as a war against all Jews.
As proof he quotes excerpts from certain literature, textbooks, and newspapers of Islamic and Arab nations which depict Jews collectively as hostile, hateful, and subhuman.
In addition, censorship by Arab governments or by Arab journalists often eliminates any portrayal of Jews in a favorable light.
Anti-Semitic incidents, such as the promotion of Jewish conspiracy propaganda in Sweden by “Radio Islam,” actual threats against
Jews in Moscow, and attacks on synagogues in Romania and France, are becoming commonplace.
In Soviet Russia the rise of nationalism parallels the rise of prejudice against even the Russian Jews.
Even Poland and Hungary, which had their Jewish populations exterminated in the Nazi Holocaust, are exhibiting signs of rekindled anti-Semitism.
Pseudo-Christian groups called “Identity Churches,” which encompass the Christian Defense League, Aryan Nations, Christian Patriots
Defense League, and certain elements of the Ku Klux Klan, the teachings against dispensationalist, are perpetuating the myth that Jews are responsible for world problems.
Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Black Muslim group “Nation of Islam,” calls Judaism “a gutter religion” and declares Hitler “a great man." -
He said that in the new York Times March 2, 1990.
The neo-Nazi “Skinhead” movement grows ever more visible and vocal.
At the same time, the Anti-Defamation League reports that anti-Semitic incidents in 1989, ranging from desecration to murder, have reached their highest level in eleven years.’
The point is this: That even though we are a Client Nation to God, and even though we still have a pivot of spiritually adult believers, neither the United States nor any other nation can afford anti-Semitism.
God reserves the sovereign right to punish the Jews for disobedience (and he has and will according to LEV 26:14-39;DEU 28:15-68), but throughout their history He has preserved this race of people because of His promise (GEN 12:1-3; cf. LEV 26:44).
LEV 26:44 'Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, nor will I so abhor them as to destroy them, breaking My covenant with them; for I am the Lord their God.
The Jewish race was founded on the principle of belief in the promise of God (GEN 15:6; cf., ROM 4:1-5).
Abraham, the father of the Jewish race, “believed in the Lord; and He [God] reckoned it to him as righteousness.” The promise begins with salvation by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ (EPH 2:8-9).
Jesus Christ is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. To deny Him signifies rejection of the spiritual heritage of the Jewish people and constitutes the underlying cause of many catastrophes in Jewish history.
No one, especially the believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, should ever participate in anti-Semitism.
Keeping the divine perspective in mind is what guards us against any form of anti-Semitism.
The assimilation of the divine perspective comes from hearing and believing the message of the Bible.
Is America in danger of divine judgment.
In grace God always warns us before judgment.
1JO 5:14 And this is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
Without truth, there is no real love.
On a day that so embodies the future course of our nation, it is critical that we must both pray and speak what is true.
