Throughout the Bible and history, God has repeatedly proven that He has chosen the Jewish people, Israel, and Jerusalem, as His chosen people, and His place for them, to live and worship Him. God has done this as an example for all peoples and nations of this world, that all humanity might learn to love and worship Him in Truth. Despite all of God's repeated warnings and encouragements about how we should relate to Him and to His chosen people, there repeatedly arise people and governments that abhor or hate Abraham's offspring and the nation of Israel. Yet, every nation has fallen, that ever despised God's Word, or that went up against the children of Abraham. In the Book of Zechariah God tells the whole world what will become of anyone who goes to fight against Israel in the last earthly battle that is yet to come, wherein the Christ of God shall personally destroy all the armies of the world that rise up against Israel.
And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the
people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while
they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes,
and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
13 And it shall come to pass in that day,
that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay
hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against
the hand of his neighbour.
Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round
about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great
15 And so shall be the
plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the
beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.
God says that there is only One Way to make peace with God; only One Way to secure to yourself God's eternal life and peace.
