The Veil Torn in Two

There's a critically important question we need to be asking ourselves as Christians. If we support the Israeli state, do we also support the states primary goal of building the third temple?


The truth of this matter is that the construction of the temple is completely counter to the foundation of the gospel, yet paramount to the vision of the Israeli nation.


Christ foretold of the razing of the second temple to the ground, and the rebuilding of the new temple which was his resurrected body and the new covenant.


The temple's sole purpose was for worship and sacrifice, which by the blood of Jesus that sacrifice is now no longer required, and the time that Christ prophesied in John 4:21,23 has come to pass, "Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him."


Understand that I believe the covenant made with Abraham had nothing to do with Abrahams performance, and still stands today.


To make an oath in those days meant both parties would walk between the two halves of an ox that was cut in half, to symbolize that such an end would be met of that person should he break the covenant.


And yet when the Lord made the covenant, it was the Lord and only the Lord that walked through the split ox while Abraham watched, symbolizing his sovereignty over the covenant.


The Jewish people will be redeemed when the 144,000 are sealed, and Elijah and Enoch descend from heaven and preach the Messiah, but we as followers of Christ need to ask ourselves a deeply important question in the meantime.


Will we support the state, who's aim is to raise again the curtain that separates the presence of God from the people, when it was the LORD himself who rent it in two when Christ made his final sacrifice to atone for sin on the cross?


I believe those who call themselves followers of Christ owe nothing to the Israeli state, but instead owe to the Jewish people what is demanded of all Christians - to love God, and to love each other as He has loved us.
