Friends By Appointment?

There is much discussion today centered around a theory known as “Intelligent Design.” The theory is based on the premise that a power, an intelligence far greater than man’s, created and set in motion all that exists.

If one believes in the God of the Bible, the theory of intelligent design makes perfect sense. It doesn’t take a Bible study of any great depth to discover that God is a God of details. The Bible student will also find God is a planner, God is the ultimate planner. When you know everything, the entire past, the present and the future, reaching through eternity it’s possible to carry out your plan.

God has had plenty of experience, He started before the beginning of time. Kind of hurts your head to try and ponder that doesn’t it? That’s why He’s God and we’re not!

Keeping all of that in mind consider this theory, it could change your entire worldview.

The Bible states that the Jews, the Israelites, are God’s chosen people. God made a covenant with the Israelites.

The New King James Version puts it this way;

Deuteronomy 7:6 "For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.”

It is stated elsewhere in the Bible as well, but Deuteronomy 7:6 speaks it plainly enough.

So, if God has a Divine plan, and is carrying out that plan, Israel is the major player. Of course, if one doesn’t subscribe to the Bible as being true or God being real then it’s doubtful any convincing will be done here.

The point though is not to debate how it all started, creationism versus evolution, that’s the beginning. The “now,” the “end” and how we’re getting there is more the subject.

An extremely fascinating article written by Stan Goodenough titled “Israel and the US - A God-ordained alliance?” and posted on the Jerusalem Newswire website present thought provoking insights.

Suppose that God created the United States of America for purpose of being Israel’s ally? Suppose that for the two and a half centuries of America’s existence God has been preparing and drawing Israel and America together for His Divine purpose.


Here’s a excerpt from the article;

“When God brought about the independence of the United States in 1776, He was supervising the founding of a nation He purposed to have in place about two centuries later as the world’s mightiest superpower.

And His reason for elevating America to this position was so that she would ally herself with the surviving remnant of the Jewish people, help them take root again in their national homeland, and support them in their struggle against a hostile world.

So America exists for Israel’s sake? What an absurd thought!

By such reckoning, all the major events that shaped the United States – from the days of early settlement, through the colonial era, the War of Independence and Declaration of Independence, the launching of the Information Age, the American Industrial Revolution, the American Civil War, the Abolition of Slavery, the attainment to flight, World War One, the Great Depression, World War Two, the advent of the Atomic Age, the Space Race, the Cold War and America’s victory over it – all these things took place ultimately so that the United States could be positioned to stand with the Jewish nation in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Surely a ridiculous idea!”

Please take the time to read the entire posting, it’s time well spent….
