In the New Testament the emphasis is now solely on the heavenly Jerusalem..

In the New Testament the emphasis is now undeniably solely on the heavenly Jerusalem not the past, present one
.
Colossians 3:2  Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
..

2 Peter 3

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Revelation 3

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Revelation 21

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

.
 AS PER THE OLD TESTAMENT “Zion”- (Hebrew: ציון‎), also transliterated Sion, Tzion or Tsion, is a place name often used as a synonym for THE CITY OF Jerusalem. 
.
Zion  is commonly referred to a specific mountain near Jerusalem (Mount Zion), on which stood a Jebusite fortress of the same name that was conquered by David and was named the City of David.   The term Tzion came to designate the area of Jerusalem where the fortress stood, and later became a metonym for Solomon‘s Temple in Jerusalem, the city of Jerusalem and generally, for the Jews the World to Come.
.
The word is first found in Samuel II, 5:7 dating to c.630–540 BCE 
Zion is the Hebrew name for the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and was the seat of the first and second Holy Temple.
.
It is the most holy place in the world for Jews, AND MUSLIMS NEXT TOO seen as the connection between God and humanity.
.
Observant Jews still falsely recite the Amidah three times a day facing Zion in Jerusalem,  falsely praying for the rebuilding of the Holy Temple, the restoration of the Temple service, the redemption of the world, and for the coming of the false anitchrist  Messiah
.
The form Tzion (Hebrew: ציון‎; Tiberian vocalization: Ṣiyyôn) appears 108 times in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible),
.
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Tzion.” (Psalms 137:1) The form Tzion (Hebrew: ציון‎; Tiberian vocalization: Ṣiyyôn) appears 108 times in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible), 
.
Zechariah 9:9   Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.10 And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from river even to the ends of the earth.11 As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.
12    Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;13 When I have bent Judah for me, filled the bow with Ephraim, and raised up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man.14 And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the LORD GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south.15 The LORD of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour, and subdue with sling stones; and they shall drink, and make a noise as through wine; and they shall be filled like bowls, and as the corners of the altar.16 And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.17 For how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty! corn shall make the young men cheerful, and new wine the maids.

.

Mentioned 26 times in the Tanakh, the Biblical phrase “Daughter of Tzion” (Hebrew “bat Tzion”) is a also reference to Mount Moriah (the Temple Mount) in Jerusalem.

.

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of  Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem ! Behold, your King is coming to you; he is just and endowed with salvation, humble, and mounted on a donkey, even on a colt , the foal of a donkey.

.

The Daughter of Tzion. The daughter of Zion in the old Testament is also  clearly the  bad religious  advisors.. as mentioned in the Song of Solomon.

.

Despite the   rebellion of the daughter of Zion even against her God, He God  promises to restore her and present her with a Deliverer, the King in the form of Jesus Christ. 

.

Matthew 21:5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
.
John 12:15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.
.
Romans 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
.
Romans 11 :26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
.
In the New Testament the Daughter of Zion is the bride of Christ, also known as the Church, according to the writer of the book of Hebrews.  Hebrews12:2 1 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) 22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. 25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: 26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
.

In the New Testament the Zion emphasis is now solely on the heavenly Jerusalem.. not the old corrupted  Jerusalem

.
Hebrews 11:16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
.
Galatians 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
.
Hebrews 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
.
Rev 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
.
Rev 14: 1    And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.
.
The Earthly Zionism today is rightfully  typically thought of as man’s idea, a political movement, a religious ideology, a human effort based on the Jewish intellect, power, and influence.
.
Most Jews still even some Christian people take isolated verse and twist them to suit what they want others to believe still especially the false Dispensationalists
.

(Isa 30:1 KJV) Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

.

Jerusalem also was the birthplace of the Christian Church: Jesus had instructed His disciples to wait in the city until they received the Holy Spirit, which was sent to them on the Day of Pentecost, some 50 days after they had witnessed the betrayal and death of their leader.

.

Eventually the mission which the 12 apostles undertook carried them beyond Jerusalem, but the city always served as a focal point for the early Church. They returned there for a key conference, as recorded in the book of Acts, and it was to Jerusalem that the apostle Paul traveled with famine relief collected in Asia Minor. Acts also records that Paul was in Jerusalem when he was arrested and began his journey to appeal to Caesar in Rome.

.

The destruction of the holy city Jerusalem  by Roman forces in 70 C.E. brought a fundamental change  forever  however.

.

The Church itself had beforehand fled the city before its destruction, relocating to a place east of the Jordan River called Pella.

.

After the Roman war, Jerusalem would never be quite the same again. The temple, the focus of the Jewish religion, and all if it’s records  had been destroyed.

.

The true worship of God, Jesus had said, was not to be limited to an edifice such as the temple. True worship was to be in a temple, or in Jerusalem  but “in spirit and truth” (John 4: 21–24). While the temple stood, it had served as a house of prayer for all people but not as a Christian holy place. There were no holy places for the Christian—no churches, no temples, no basilicas. Instead, Christianity had to be lived on a daily basis, irrespective of where a person was.

The body and mind of the individual were to be the holy space. The individual was now the true temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16). While the temple stood, it had served as a house of prayer for all people but not as a Christian holy place.

.

There were, are no holy places for the Christian—no churches, no temples, no basilicas. Instead, Christianity had to be lived on a daily basis, irrespective of where a person was. The body and mind of the individual were to be the holy space. The individual was now the true temple of God (1 Corinthians 3:16). 

As in the New Testament the emphasis is now solely on the heavenly Jerusalem.. 

.

Romans 4:13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 

.

Note this the promises are  not to a Genetic  seed of Jews or of Abraham only   even..  Galatians 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.  And he shall reign over the house of Jacob,…. Not over the Jews, the posterity of Jacob, in a literal sense; but over the whole Israel of God, consisting of true Jews – the true Israel of God- the church of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit filled Christians he Jesus Christ  shall reign in the hearts of his Christian  people here unto the end of the world; and with his the Holy Spirit filled Christians  a thousand years in the new heavens and new earth; and with them to all eternity, in the ultimate glory.

.

Jesus had said His Kingdom is not off this World  and of his kingdom there shall be no end.  

.

Yes Jesus Christ  he will rule over all the Christians in Heaven,  all the unsaved Jews are in Hell. Note all of the unsaved Jews are in Hell.. You are either a Jew or a Christian too you cannot be both,,“

.

“And to him was given dominion and glory and kingdom, that all peoples, nations and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed” (Dan 7:14).   This is the glorious Kingdom that was prophesied.  At last it has come.  The King of this everlasting and universal Kingdom of heavenly peace on earth is the son of Mary, who is the only Son of God, conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit (Lk 1:35; Mt 1:18,20).  This King will reign forever, and will be called “Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Is 9:6 KJV).  And “Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever” (Is 9:7 KJV).

.

We Christians do now live in this Kingdom of universal peace if we live in Jesus Christ.  He brings heavenly peace to our hearts.  He remakes us.  He rejuvenates the human race, making it a new creation (2 Cor 5:17; Gal 6:15; Rev 21:5).  He makes us new men (Eph 4:22-24) by forgiving our sins and filling us with the splendor of his own righteousness.  He clothes us with glory as with a robe of righteousness (Is 61:10).  We are clothed with Jesus Christ himself (Gal 3:27; Rom 13:14) through our faith in him.

.

This is the sole everlasting Kingdom that we now celebrate in the birth of Christ.  He has a throne that is established forever, in a Kingdom of heavenly peace over the whole earth, in which we can now live through our faith in him.  It is a Kingdom in which he cleanses us and rejoices us, renews us, and fills us with his own peace.

.

Christ is the promised descendent, prefigured by Solomon.  He is an everlasting King, not just an everlasting dynasty.  Thus the fulfillment is greater than the prophecy that David would have an everlasting dynasty and an everlasting throne. 

.

In Jesus Christ, the dynasty and throne of David are everlasting; and Christ fulfills the prophecy of the psalmist, who prophesied, “I will establish your descendents forever, and build your throne for all generations” (Ps 88:4).  And “I will establish his line forever and his throne as the days of the heavens” (Ps 88:29).  In Jesus Christ this is fulfilled.

.

I am aware of the fact the dispensationalists Rev John Darby and Cyrus Scofield have led many saints into such a mess, that it’s become the tool for a Brethren cult too!

.

Some persons do preach, write out of their guilty, to compensate for the related emptiness they are feeling, while others write because they are ambitious, they write out of seeking fame, their seeking a place of prominence.. many are just lead by the devil too.

.

Too many persons here too are wrongfully these days adding or taking away from the word of God, the Bible and that is why there is so much disputes, different contradictory wrings in the Churches also these days.. of course this happens cause there will be always the wolves now amongst us as well, those followers of the devil who want to destroy the word of God too. It is not a coincident that too many Dispensationalists do also oppose the work of the HOLY SPIRIT today as well, his Charismatic GIFTS NOW TOO.

.

Dispensationalism is basically false and it is the method of interpreting the scriptures that sees two distinct peoples of God, with two distinct destinies of Israel and the Church. It also unacceptably tries falsely to explain away the relevance of the gifts of the holy spirit today. It is not a coincident that too many Dispensationalists do also oppose the work of the   HOLY SPIRIT today as well, HIS Charismatic GIFTS NOW TOO.

.

Note: This list represents a wide segment of popular Dispensational teachings; however, Dispensationalism  is by no means a monolithic entity, and many self-professed Dispensationalists, particularly in the Progressive school, would not adhere to many of its points.

.

 Dispensationalism is basically the method of interpreting the scriptures that sees two distinct peoples of God, with two distinct destinies  Israel and the Church. Some of the false  tenets that all or most contemporary mainstream Dispensationalists would falsely hold to do include the following:

1.The Church is not the continuation of God’s Old Testament people, but a distinct body born on the Day of Pentecost.

2.The Church is never equated with Israel in the New Testament, and Christians are not Jews, true Israel, etc.

3.The prophecies made to Israel in the Old Testament are not being fulfilled in the Church, nor will they ever be.

4.The Church does not participate in the New Covenant prophesied in the Old Testament; it is for ethnic Israel, and will be established in a future millennial kingdom.

5.The Old Testament saints were saved by faith alone, on the basis of the Calvary-work of Christ alone; however, the object of their faith was not Christ, but rather the revelation peculiar to their dispensation.

6.The Old Testament saints did not know of the coming Church Age, of the resurrection of Christ, or basically, of what we today call the gospel.

7.When Jesus came to earth, he offered the Jews a physical kingdom, but they rejected him.

8.When Jesus proclaimed the gospel of the Kingdom, it was the news about how ethnic Jews might enter and find rewards in this physical kingdom, and is to be distinguished from the gospel as defined in I Corinthians 15:3-4, which the apostles later proclaimed to the church.

9.After the Jews rejected Jesus’ kingdom offer, he inaugurated a parenthetical ‘Church Age’, which will be concluded immediately before God again takes up his dealings with his national people, ethnic Israel.

10.During the ‘Church Age,’ Jesus is not reigning from the throne of David; he is engaged instead in his priestly work, and his kingly work will take place in the future millennial kingdom.

11.At some unspecified but imminent time, Jesus will return (but not all the way to earth, just to the air) and rapture his Church, also called his Bride; for the following seven years, they will feast with him at the marriage supper of the Lamb; meanwhile, on earth, he will begin to deal with his national people, ethnic Israel, again, calling them to himself and preserving them in the midst of seven years of great tribulation; at the midpoint of which, the Antichrist will set himself up as god in the rebuilt Jewish temple, and demand worship from the world.

12.After these seven years, Christ will return, this time all the way to earth. He will defeat the forces of evil, bind Satan and cast him into a pit, and inaugurate the physical Jewish Kingdom that he had offered during his life on earth. The Jews who survived the tribulation will populate the earth during this blessed golden era, and the Christians will reign spiritually, in glorified bodies.

13.After these thousand years, Satan will be released and will gather an army from the offspring of the Jews who survived the tribulation. He will be finally defeated and cast into hell. At this time, the wicked dead will be resurrected and judged, whereas the righteous dead had already been resurrected one-thousand-seven years previously, at the rapture. Christ will then usher in the New Heavens and New Earth, and the destinies of all mankind will be finalized. Dispensationalists are divided as to whether or not there will remain a distinction between Christians and Jews in the New Earth.

.”

The real New Testament Church is the real continuation of   Abraham’s seed. and not the Jews…

.

Act 15:12-17 Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them. And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me: Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.

.

Rom 9:23-26 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

.

Rom 11:11-32 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?… For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. [Whether or not one sees a future for ethnic Israel in this passage is beside the point: in any case, there is only one people of God, represented by the one olive tree. Believing Gentiles have been grafted into this one tree, and unbelieving Jews broken off; but when they are grafted back in, it will be the same tree into which the Gentiles were grafted, God’s people, true Israel.]

Gal 3:7-8 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

.

Gal 3:13-14 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

.

Eph 2:11-22 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

.

Eph 3:5-6 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

.

Hence, New Testament believers are called the true Jews, Abraham’s seed, etc.

.

Rom 2:28-29 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

.

Rom 4:11-12 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also: And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.

.

Rom 9:6-8 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

.

Gal 3:6-7 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

.

Gal 3:26-29 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

.

Gal 4:21-31 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband. Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

.

Phi 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

.

Heb 12:22-24 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

.

1Pe 2:9-12 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

Some have falsely said that these Jewish terms are applied to the Church by way of analogy, not identification. However, when Peter goes on to speak of these ethnic Gentiles in contrast with the  “Gentiles “he makes it clear that he actually is intending to refer to them as Jews.

.

Rev 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

.

Of great significance that John Hagee and his scantly veiled two-covenant theology has overlooked in pursuit of a personal political agenda (in the name of Christianity) called “Christian Zionism ” and what appears to be a strong bid to hijack Biblical Christianity and replace it with Judaism are the powerful words and teachings of Paul written in Romans Chapter 9 and Galatians Chapter 4 and 5

http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/most-people-do-take-isolated-verse-and-twist-them/

.

In God’s schema of things there are two masters in the Great Controversy–Christ and Satan. Each has a kingdom. Christ’s Kingdom  is represented by the city now called the New Jerusalem.

.

Satan’s kingdom is the Synagogue of Satan, and this is represented by the city earthly Zion,  Jerusalem, called Babylon or confusion.

.

Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

.

Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

.

Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

.

Rev 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

.

Rev 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

.

“The goal of the leftist Jewish   elite is to establish a Universal dictatorial Illuministic Communism and to enslave all of mankind under the thumb of a Jewish master race led by a world messiah who is to rule from Jerusalem. 

.

An essential element in this grandiose  plot to blow up and destroy Islam’s golden-domed monument now sitting on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, despised by Orthodox Jewish rabbis and the secularist Masonic Illuminists alike.

.

The Jews are beset with an unbridled ambition—a consuming desire to acquire global power and establish once and for all their long-delayed Zionist Kingdom on planet earth. The religion of Judaism, based on the Babylonian Talmud, and the Jewish Cabala (or, Kabala), an alchemical system of magic and deviltry, is despicable” 

.

The Sin Of Worshiping The Land Of Israel Instead is Idolatry,  as idolizing and worshiping of Jerusalem, Israel and the Jews is evil in the sight of God.  Especially since Israel today is a shameful nation that has abandoned the sole God of the Bible, Jesus Christ. It  is demonism  that are  inspiring people to idolize Israel and the Jews. You are now  also God, Bible IGNORANT if you do still think that God blesses any Christians who support a wicked, Christ-rejecting people, Nation of Israel. The land of Israel itself and the nation still  has nothing to do with our salvation from death and sin.!  Jesus alone now died, was buried and rose up three days later for our justification. Defending Israel is NOT even a man’s job. Defending Israel is NOT a function of the New Testament Church. In fact, this may come as a shock to you, but the Bible says that Jerusalem and the Jews will be attacked and defeated, continually  as we often hear about it too, until the Lord returns to earth, thus ending “the times of the Gentiles.” Luke 21:24, “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Israel today is not the fulfillment of any New Testament Biblical prophecy. as well.Only a total jackass, fool would believe otherwise.. Don’t be fooled  as God is not concerned with restoring Israel to the Holy Land anymore . Jesus told the Jewish rabbis of His time that the kingdom of God had been taken away from them forever. Zionism  itself now still has no need, purpose, nor concern for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Salvation is of the Lord. Salvation came through the Jews, not by the Jews. A Jew must be born-again or he or she cannot go to Heaven. Nicodemus was a Jewish leader, a Pharisee. Jesus warned Nicodemus that he needed to be born again or else he couldn’t enter into the kingdom of God (John 3:5-7). Hebrews 13:5 promises that God never forsakes His own. If you are unsaved,  do refuse to accept Jesus Christ as th Lord of your life, it is you alone that have already forsaken God and rather  now next Hell, the Lake of Fire will be your eternal home.

Of all the words of Jesus recorded in the Bible, about twenty-five percent of his teaching was devoted to prophecy concerning the destruction of Jerusalem, the scattering of the Jewish people worldwide, and the end of the world. Instead of listening to the lies of mere men and demons do read Jesus’ words in their entirety, in the Bible itself firstly. Not one Bible Prophecies Endorses Israel’s present Behavior, land conquests. The nation of Israel was blessed when it obeyed God’s instructions, and it was next cursed when it disobeyed. The context of Jesus’ Olivet Discourse was about the pending desolation of Jerusalem and the Jews, and NOT about even the Gentile end times.https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2015/03/30/desolate/

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 8 :32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me

what does the word chosen mean in the Bible?

 .

The problem even with the Messianic Jews and most  JEWS  is that they are color blind.. they can only see things through a Jewish perspective.. not the reality.. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2013/11/04/the-problem-even-with-the-messianic-jews-is/

.

Sadly still today  lot of persons add their personal unbiblical, unjustified views when expositoring the Bible.

.

JESUS  HAD WARNED THE JEWS  IN JERUSALEM ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM AND IT’S TEMPLE AND WHY AS WELL.
.
Matthew 23:37,38:O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets, and stone them which are sent to you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not!
.

  Luke 19:41-44 And when he (Jesus) was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

.

  Isaiah 1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.

.

  Lamentations 1:8 Jerusalem hath grievously sinned; therefore she is removed: all that honoured her despise her, because they have seen her nakedness: yea, she sigheth, and turneth backward.

.

  Lamentations 2:13-14 What thing shall I take to witness for thee? what thing shall I liken to thee, O daughter of Jerusalem? what shall I equal to thee, that I may comfort thee, O virgin daughter of Zion? for thy breach is great like the sea: who can heal thee? Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment.

.

Lamentations 4:11-12 The Lord hath accomplished his fury; he hath poured out his fierce anger, and hath kindled a fire in Zion, and it hath devoured the foundations thereof. The kings of the earth, and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy should have entered into the gates of Jerusalem.

.

Predictions about the Temple’s destruction were not original or unique to Jesus. Earlier prophets had said much the same thing as part of their standard litany of how God would punish the corruption of Israel, for example:

“Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.” (Micah 3:12)

 .
Now most of the Jews of their day (especially the Essenes and the Pharisees) even most Jews today  were looking falsely for a Jewish Messiah to come who would restore national Israel, set up an earthly kingdom,and thry thus next were surprised Jesus was talking about the destruction of the temple and the desolation of Israel next instead,  as Jesus  rather indicated the desolation next of the Jews, Israel * and he relatedly prophesied both the destruction of the temple and Jerusalem;  and they of course had expected falsely that anyway next the temple in Jerusalem would be rebuilt,and the nation of Israel would be restored which will never happen again in God ‘s plan…. Matthew 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.  so they  had asked , 1  “When will this happen, and 2 what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”  
 .
The meaning of the term desolate is very clear, The nation of  Israel , Jews next will be replaced as God’s chosen ones.. Acts 1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishopric let another take.
Chosen is never again used by God to indicate the Jews but rather only of the Christian church.
 .
John 6:70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
 .
John 13:18 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.
 .
John 15
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
.
2 Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
.
1 Peter 2: 4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
 .
Revelation 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
.
1 Corinthians 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;  28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
 .
and  as to when will Christ come Back..
Luke 13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
 .
How close are we to the War that will end all WARS ? just as close a we have been the last 2000 years, the rest is merely false speculation .
 .
Matthew 24: 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only
 .
 We all should stick with preaching the Gospel, not the false dispensationaliist lies

*Matthew 24:
1    And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2    And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3    And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
*luke 21:5
5    And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,
6    As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
20    And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
21    Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter there into.
22    For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
23    But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.
24    And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
.

In his well known prophecy about the end of the age recorded by Matthew and Luke, Jesus predicted the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem which came to pass 40 years after his death and resurrection. 

.

The Meaning of  The Number 40,   this number 40  symbolizes a period of warning .  The prophet Jonah powerfully warned ancient Nineveh, for forty days, that its destruction would come because of its many sins.

What is also very interesting is the note of Eusebius, the Christian historian. Eusebius noted that all Christians were warned and escaped to Pella (History of the Church 3:5). The Gnostic Epiphanes confirmed this too. Jesus gave warning to the disciples to warn those who are in Judea and in Jerusalem to leave (Luke 21:21). This is another amazing miracle!

.

Daniel 9:24-26
Daniel foretold the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple

Deuteronomy 28:49-52
The Bible foreshadowed Rome’s destruction of Israel

Deuteronomy 29:23
Israel would become a wasteland

Luke 19:41-44
Jesus explained why Jerusalem would be destroyed

Luke 21:24
Jesus prophesied that the Jews would be exiled

Matthew 24:1-2
Jesus prophesied that the Temple would be destroyed

Micah 3:11-12
Zion would be “plowed like a field”

It may surprise you to discover that the New Testament never uses the term ‘chosen’ to describe the Jewish people. It is only used of those who follow Jesus. http://www.cc-vw.org/articles/zcs2.pdf   Reality  is that the New Testament never uses the term ‘chosen’ to describe the Jewish people. Chosen now it  is only used of those who follow Jesus.. reality! http://wittnessed.wordpress.com/2013/04/09/do-we-all-realy-now-need-to-support-the-jews-now-why/

VALID PERSONS GOING TO HEAVEN  CHRISTIANS DO BASE ALL OF THEIR VALID BIBLICAL DOCTRINES SOLELY ON THE NEW TESTAMENT SUBSTANTIATION BY JESUS OR THE APOSTLES, NOT JUST ON THE  OLD TESTAMENT REFERENCES .
Now also all the promises of God now still only belong to the Christians only as they solely now are  true Israel.. When Christ had Jesus shouted, “It is finished!” the Old Jewish Covenant with God had ended and  AND A COVENANT was made effective, even clearly in the Jerusalem Temple where the curtain, veil  in the Temple was torn  
.
 Mk  15: 37    And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.38    And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
 Lk  23:  42    And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43    And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. 44    And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45    And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. 46    And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
.
Because of their OWN CLEAR rejection of Jesus Christ even today  as their savior, and as their Lord Messiah all of the Jews had since the time of Jesus Christ stopped being God’s chosen people, their Jerusalem temple was destroyed permanently, and next no new God Ordained temple will be even be rebuilt with God’s approval  anymore even because Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God. Nor does God approve of the Jews as even  having have any further rights to the promised land anymore as well..  And all of the blessing once reserved  for the Jews have all now been replaced by blessings for Christians only.. too bad some persons  they are  are falsely stuck in the Old Testament.. as they do  also even miss Heaven doing that too.  Sadly even today  they the Jews like Cain are trying to reestablish their own false, INAPPLICABLE, even the old  Judaism, religion now….
.

 (Heb 11:4 KJV)  By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

(1 John 3:12 KJV)  Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.

(Jude 1:11 KJV)  Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core..

You can try to apply any Old Testament verse to Israel as  you want too but it is not necessarily valid, applicable true anymore.. Because of their OWN CLEAR rejection of Jesus Christ even today  as their savior, and as their Lord Messiah all of the Jews had since the time of Jesus Christ stopped being God’s chosen people, their Jerusalem temple was destroyed permanently, and next no new God Ordained temple will be even be rebuilt with God’s approval  anymore even because Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/08/09/even-heaven-awaits-jewish-return-to-god-jesus-christ-and-rather-not-to-the-promised-earthly-land/
.
Furthermore God whose Name is Yahweh in Hebrew who became flesh and made Himself known TODAY  by His Greek Name which is Jesus AND is solely  used and applicable,  the Greek Name even meaning Christos, the anointed one who anoints one with the Holy Spirit and not any of the Hebrew names..  No Jews personal  praise   of God is now even accepted by God especially in their   even their unredeemed and  sinful state,  sins now. Their praise do not reach God  as their uncovered  sins  suffocate them. Nor does God approve of the Jews as even  having have any further rights to the promised land anymore as well.. 
 http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/even-as-to-the-promised-land/

Do note again that because of  their OWN CLEAR rejection of Jesus Christ even today  as their savior, and as  their Lord Messiah all of the Jews had since the time of Jesus Christ stopped  being God’s chosen people, their  Jerusalem temple was destroyed permanently, and  next no new God Ordained temple will be even be rebuilt  with God’s approval  anymore even because Jesus Christ himself is the new temple of God.

Messianic Jews and the Seventh day Adventists, Judaizers still do falsely teach that we must all abide by all the necessary “laws” of the Holy Bible whilst also keeping all the scriptures of Jesus commandments . The use of the word “laws” in the Old Testament Bible, specifically does specially mean the Mosaic “laws”, or the “laws” of the Torah, all the “laws” of the first 5 books of the Bible. Also when Jesus refers to the “law” he himself now means all of the 613 “laws” of the Old Covenant. This, of course, includes the Ten Commandments but is not limited to them. But the old covenant “laws” themselves were only valid until the coming of Christ firstly. True Christians do not mix the Old and New Covenants “laws”, laws as defined by the New testament, nor do they rightfully now support any of the Judaizers and their “laws”, all those persons who want to keep the Torah “laws” and just add Jesus to it. Today the entire Old Covenant “laws” was to be casted out by the Christian but we must all still follow His new teachings that are valid in the New Covenant as per (Galatians 4:21-31). The New Covenant teachings of Jesus did not include Sabbath-keeping “laws”and many other “laws”of the now obsolete Torah. True Christians believe that the “laws” has been completely abrogated and replaced with the Law of Christ.; Messianic Jews. and the Seventh day Adventists,Judaizers do still try to uphold invalid laws, part of the Bible falsely do draw people away from the truth of Jesus Christ. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/07/14/messianic-judaism-today/

BY THE WAY THERE ALSO IS NO NEW TESTAMENT REFERENCE, THAT SUBSTANTIATED THE 3RD JEWISH RETURN TO THE HOLY LAND, THE PROMISE LAND. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/12/09/what-the-bible-says-about-israel-and-the-church  http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2009/08/01/israels-past-promised-land/
.
             
Too many fundamentals, professing Christians now falsely do that the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 was prophesied in Scripture while there is no direct support of this in the New Testament Bible even still. Zionism, on the other hand, “is a secularist, largely atheistic ideology” that emerged in the late 19th century. God still does not require the human input to fulfill his own prophecies. Now too many Christian Zionists, extremists do falsely do now believe that in order to fulfill all of the Biblical prophecy, Israel must next conquer most of the Middle East. And anyone watched the mostly self centered, get richer TV evangelists such as a Pat Robertson or John Hagee and their distorted sermons scenarios involving the future “Rapture,” Jesus Christ and also Israel, should also quickly firstly now realize that these false prophets are not only fleecing, scaring their flock to give more money but falsely are into worshipping the false idol of Israel. .John Hagee pays himself over a million dollars a year in TAX FREE money while having several palaces to live in, like the $2.1 million 7,969-acre ranch outside Brackettville, Texas , with five lodges, including a “main lodge” and a gun locker.;Once considered a small marginal doctrine among evangelicals, the false dispensationalist theology of Christian Zionism has greatly escalated, ironically falsely with the help of jess, Messianic Jews, Judaizers and many others too. The reality still is that the parable of the vineyard (Matt 21:33-43) clearly shows that the Christian Church totally now rather succumbs all of the past promises made to Israel. Be careful about accepting anyone’s word about Christian Zionism do first read the Bible, New Testament for yourself and know the truth rather. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/07/29/the-2-promised-returns/

AS TO  I am not quite sure about what you mean regarding “justification of any of Israel’s past or present acts.” INCLUDES THEIR MURDER OF INNOCENT CITIZENS, CHRISTIANS TOO OFTEN NOW TOO.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/06/16/what-the-canadian-conservatives-do-not-say-about-israel/

Again so what does the word chosen mean in the Bible and Chosen for what? For a job? a purpose? for suffering? to bear fruit? as a witness? READ THE BIBLE FOR YOURSELF AND FIND OUT THE MEANING OF THE WORD CHOSEN..

.

(Deu 7:6 KJV)  For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

(Deu 12:21 KJV)  If the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to put his name there be too far from thee, then thou shalt kill of thy herd and of thy flock, which the LORD hath given thee, as I have commanded thee, and thou shalt eat in thy gates whatsoever thy soul lusteth after.

(Deu 16:11 KJV)  And thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to place his name there.

(Deu 18:5 KJV)  For the LORD thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the LORD, him and his sons for ever.

(Deu 21:5 KJV)  And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near; for them the LORD thy God hath chosen to minister unto him, and to bless in the name of the LORD; and by their word shall every controversy and every stroke be tried:

(Josh 24:22 KJV)  And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses.

(Judg 10:14 KJV)  Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.

(1 Sam 8:18 KJV)  And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

(1 Sam 10:24 KJV)  And Samuel said to all the people, See ye him whom the LORD hath chosen, that there is none like him among all the people? And all the people shouted, and said, God save the king.

(2 Sam 6:1 KJV)  Again, David gathered together all the chosen men of Israel, thirty thousand.

(1 Ki 8:48 KJV)  And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name:

(1 Ki 11:13 KJV)  Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for David my servant’s sake, and for Jerusalem’s sake which I have chosen.

(1 Ki 11:36 KJV)  And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.

(1 Chr 28:4 KJV)  Howbeit the LORD God of Israel chose me before all the house of my father to be king over Israel for ever: for he hath chosen Judah to be the ruler; and of the house of Judah, the house of my father; and among the sons of my father he liked me to make me king over all Israel:

(1 Chr 28:6 KJV)  And he said unto me, Solomon thy son, he shall build my house and my courts: for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his father.

(1 Chr 28:10 KJV)  Take heed now; for the LORD hath chosen thee to build an house for the sanctuary: be strong, and do it.

(2 Chr 6:6 KJV)  But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel.

(2 Chr 29:11 KJV)  My sons, be not now negligent: for the LORD hath chosen you to stand before him, to serve him, and that ye should minister unto him, and burn incense.

(Psa 33:12 KJV)  Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

(Psa 78:31 KJV)  The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.

(Psa 105:26 KJV)  He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen.

(Psa 105:43 KJV)  And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:

(Psa 106:5 KJV)  That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.

(Psa 106:23 KJV)  Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them.

(Psa 119:30 KJV)  I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.

(Isa 48:10 KJV)  Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.

(Isa 58:5 KJV)  Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?

(Isa 58:6 KJV)  Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

(Isa 65:15 KJV)  And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name:

(Isa 66:3 KJV)  He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.

(Jer 8:3 KJV)  And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the LORD of hosts.

If you claim to be chosen by God then this is what you have been chosen still to do an follow his will..
  .
Psalm 105:43 And He brought forth His people with joy, and His chosen ones with gladness {and} singing, 44 And gave them the lands of the nations [of Canaan], and they reaped the fruits of those peoples’ labor, 45 That they might observe His statutes and keep His laws [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them]. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)
 .
You have been chosen to love and to obey God, to follow him in all of His ways, to be His slaves, His servants, and to continually pray to God, and to  praise, worship the Lord Jesus Christ.
 
 . The only main portion of the Bible that you really need to read, to follow  is the New Testament because we are no longer under Old Testament covenant, law  –  essentially the   the New Testament replaces the basic requirements of the  Law and the Prophets of the Old Testament.  Believers should still embrace the whole Word of God but now they do not follow the non applicable old testament laws, rituals. The Old Testament has been superseded by the New Testament. We are not under the old testament laws but under those laws  solely in the new testament… the law of the spirit..(Rom 8:2 KJV)  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
.
 
The sole basis of the Christian faith today, which is why it is also called the New Testament as well, is not at all the Old Testament Judaism but the New Testament Jesus. The true Christians since Jesus Christ next always left their old Jewish Synagogues all together… and all Christian Jews, Messianic Jews too need to do this today as well, also they are supposed to give up their Jewish roots, Jewish culture, Jewish religion when they accept Jesus Christ as their master, lord and savior . Some clerics, theologians, and scholars have worked hard to recover the supposedly historical Jewish Jesus. why? Ironically this rather was aided also by the Jews, Judiazers, even the false Christians themselves who falsely wanted it seems to promote their own self importance, the false value of the now rather false, obsolete old Judaic religion, and it’s also still the false observation of the Old testament letter of the law over the New Testament spirit of the law approach. It is an ungodly act still too.

(Acts 20:29 KJV) For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. 31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. (1 Tim 4:1 KJV) Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

.

Old Israel being God’s people for they still will go to hell LIKE MANY PROFESSING CHRISTIANS WILL if they personally reject Christ and do not continue to follow after him. (Mat 7:21 KJV) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (Rom 2:9 KJV) Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

.

Real Jews, real Christians look solely unto the heavenly Jerusalem Hebrews 11:8-10 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

.

Some   Christians today interpret Romans 11:26 as applying to the end of the seven-year tribulation when Jesus appears in the clouds at His Second Coming. In other words, they don’t apply the verse to all Jews throughout history, but only to “all Jews” who are alive at the end. Supposedly, at the end of the tribulation, all remaining Jews in Israel will look up, see Christ coming in the clouds, realize He is the true Messiah, believe in Him, and thus “All Israel will be saved.”This is a false teaching, Rather the immediate context of Romans 11:26 is vs. 25. When “the fullness of the Gentiles has come in,” then “all Israel will be saved.” Or, to be exact, “And so all Israel will be saved.” including both the remnant  Jews and gentiles.. In other words, the coming in of the fullness or total number of the Gentiles results in “all Israel” …being saved. Paul’s idea seems to be that when all Gentiles (totally, throughout history) have come in, that is, have been grafted into the Vine, they, uniting with all Jews who have become believers, will form the total number of the saved.The Israel of God is composed of both Jews and Gentiles who believe in Jesus Christ (Gal. 3:29). The “all Israel that is saved” does not apply to all Jews throughout history, nor can it apply to a select favored group who become instant believers when Jesus Christ comes crashing down through the sky. By that time, it is too late to believe.

GOD HAD DESTROYED THE JERUSALEM TEMPLE  AS JESUS HAD STATED AND IT WOULD NEVER BE REBUILT BECAUSE HE JESUS CHRIST NOW WAS THE TEMPLE http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/jewishtemple.htm

The clearly unbiblical Christian Zionism is essentially the  fundamental Christians and Messianic Jews support for Zionism where Zionism today is  a Jewish’s support,  political system based on ethnic exclusivity giving Jews preferential political rights which are denied to Palestinians.  It has been gained support more by the TV Evangelsists over any valid Bible references. The United Nations itself  has officially defined Zionism as a form of racism and apartheid and most of the world agrees with this .Zionists are part of a   a broad coalition which not only helps keep Israel’s ’s racist government in power and is also , helping to shape the aggressive stance of US foreign policy in the Middle East today.  Rev Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and Hal Lindsey.  Oral Roberts, Mike Evans, Tim LaHaye, Kenneth Copeland, Paul Crouch, Ed McAteer, Jim Bakker, Franklin Graham, James Dobson, Chuck Missler and Jimmy Swaggart had become falsely supporters of the Zionist State. George Bush Snr., Bill Clinton and George W. Bush , Ronald Reagan,  have also maintained a strong pro-Zionist position of their predecessors. The influence of the Zionist lobby is the most powerful in the United States States. The mass-media circulation Tel Aviv daily Ha’aretz iss claiming “60 percent of all financial help to Democrats came from Jewish sources.

IT IS EVIDENT THAT  MUCH OF ZIONIST  FALSE THEOLOGY IS BASED ON ISOLATED VERSES OF SCRIPTURES SPECIFICALLY NEGLECTING ALL THE VERSE IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.

Now we all do really have freedom of religion, freedom of choice, freedom of speech, the right to be heard now as well.. I clearly do believe in the right of everyone to speak, to speak out as well, and to be equally heard by all, so we can all judge what has been said if it is appropriate and we can next corresponding act upon it, even in the church, in the government, on the internet now too. Clearly some bad people falsely still DO DISALLOW THIS RIGHT… the really bad persons especially as even I know this for sure as they falsely refuse the whole to be shared even as  to who they are firstly. They respond with a personal attack, inquisition, censorship, lies, slanders, diversions, distortions, instead of facing, dealing with the facts, truths being presented. Confirming to many what they still are really like, immoral, abusive bullies. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2012/04/11/now-about-the-abusers-bullies-thugs-proud-oppressors-war-mongers/
