AMERICAN HISTORY, FACTS, not just words, bear witness to “IN GOD WE TRUST”
DISCLAIMER: “Israel” is not about human “supremacy”, pride, prejudice, envy or resentments. Anything but. God’s revelation reveals the “sinful” nature of ALL His creation. The human history of “Israel” reveals the horrible, sinful nature of Israel, which is an example for ALL peoples to recognize and reflect on. The story of Israel is both SPECIFIC and UNIVERSAL in its lessons of God’s Biblical revelations to humanity. GOD, not Israel per se, is GREAT!
I am NOT of “ANGLO-SAXON” (sons of “Isaac”) descent. But “my peoples” did come to the United States and enjoyed God’s “BLESSINGS” provided to the “SONS of JOSEPH” – Ephraim and Manesseh. Spiritual pride is the FIRST thing God warns us of. Jesus came to the “religious” people of the day, castigating their self-righteousness and hypocrisy.
DO NOT CONFUSE GOD’s “PLAN” of “REDEMPTION” with “SALVATION”. YET, DO NOT DENY the “REALITY” of GOD “HAND” in history.
“Defining” God in earthly, flesh terms for our own corrupt use is evil. BUT “denial” of God’s “blessings, the role played by His chosen “oracle Peoples”, ignoring and rejecting His “redemption plan” is ALSO evil. Ephraim-England is described as a cake “half turned”, half baked because it turned it’s back in denial, “ASHAMED” of God’s promises and blessings, fearful of those who DESPISE the reality of God. We are not the source of “exceptional-ism” – but we serve a GOD that IS!
The whole point is GOD’s “MARVELOUS WORK” of “ISRAEL” is a “WONDER” which will be “KNOWN” – whether we “like” it or not. The story of Israel is meant to SERVE GOD’s PURPOSES, NOT OUR OWN.
Those human perspectives which claim either “supremacy” or “anger-envy-resentments” at GOD’s PROMISES are BOTH spiritually “idiot-ic”, ignorant and disrespectful.
SCREW BOTH the GOD DENIERS and DESPISERS who DISTORT the TRUTH of GOD’s PROMISES! IN GOD WE TRUST!
