According to the Holy Bible ANYONE who does bad things to Isreal, Bad things will happen to them.
A*e y*u s*ries?
And the Scriptures in question aren't referring to the secular, socialist modern nation-state -- but, whatever.
God is always at work everywhere but we don’t always understand what He is doing.
The Almighty certainly seems to have made a comment on “Global Warming” this winter. Before Copenhagen even adjourned Europe was suffering record cold.
The Lord is omnipresent and omnipotent. Of course He’s at work. Far be it from me to know how He’s working. I just want to stay on His side.
That literally made me LOL!
You do yeoman’s work - so you are forgiven.
Take a nap;)
Are we not allowed to spell out GOD?
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."
To what then do they refer instead?
I’m sure he was still in control for the Russian people under 80 years of brutal Soviet dictatorship, starvation, and murder.
Sometimes people suffer (because of their own action/inaction) even when God is in control.
He gave us Free Will to ACT, not simply to believe.

It’s all G*D.
I thing I’ll go figure out what this thinkamajig is.
Remember the 50’s B movie classic - The Think, with James Arness.
**Are we not allowed to spell out G-D?**
That is Jewish belief. OUT OF RESPECT for Israel, I honor their tradition, when referring to Judaism or Israel.
“Anyone here thing the G*D is at work this weekend?”
If you mean God, then say God.
My answer is yes, but the other guy is alive and well too...
God is always at work and answer every prayer with three answers: yes, no, and wait.
**on TV they can say GD,**
Lately, I’ve noticed them bleeping out the “G” and NOT the “D”
We can only pray this is so.
If He is, He’s not proofing His work.
Ahahahaha....thanks for the laugh. Very funny.
When bad things happen to the Saudi’s maybe you’ll have an argument.
You just did.
And ironically, so does Is-ra-el.
“El” is deity-referencing.
So is Judea, incorporating “Yah” for Yahweh in the original pronunciation.
And of course, lots of names do that, like Mi-ka-yah and Mi-cha-el, which are the same name with ‘el’ substituted for ‘yah’ at the end.
That substitution became popular in Ebla under King Ebrum (Abram) circa 4300 years ago.
So deity names have always been said and written.
The whole n*me wr*tten l*ke th*s thing is historically inaccurate.
See post #35.
Galatians 6:15-16 --
15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.
16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule, even to the Israel of God.

The commandment not to erase or deface the name of God comes from Deut. 12:3. In that passage, the people are commanded that when they take over the promised land, they should destroy all things related to the idolatrous religions of that region, and should utterly destroy the names of the local deities. Immediately afterwards, we are commanded not to do the same to our God. From this, the rabbis inferred that we are commanded not to destroy any holy thing, and not to erase or deface a Name of God.
It is worth noting that this prohibition against erasing or defacing Names of God applies only to Names that are written in some kind of permanent form, and recent rabbinical decisions have held that writing on a computer is not a permanent form, thus it is not a violation to type God’s Name into a computer and then backspace over it or cut and paste it, or copy and delete files with God’s Name in them. However, once you print the document out, it becomes a permanent form. That is why observant Jews avoid writing a Name of God on web sites like this one or in newsgroup messages: because there is a risk that someone else will print it out and deface it.
Exactly. They refer to Spiritual Israel (The Church).
Yes. If we do not support Israel, we will be on the wrong side of God. We’re already in big enough trouble as it is with what our nation allows (abortion, etc.)
Most people online do that out of respect for religions who don’t spell the whole word out.
Or, put another way: the verses refer to Messiah-believing Jews, and also those johnny-come-lately gentiles who are incorporated with this Believing Jewish community.
(Which would be another way of saying, The Church: a Messianic-Jewish community with assorted gentiles grafted in).
I don't imagine where you would get that idea, from anything I wrote.
I think we forget there is a foe that seeks to kill and destroy, operating throughout the world...influencing peoples minds and hearts. We of course have Good operating throughout the world and all that is good and right is from Him. But with these we have mankind who is free to make choices...to determine and weigh and discern the differences. Because man is free to choose some will choose one path others will choose another and when these two meet we see the battles.
AN example might help....God promises to feed every life and it has been proven there is more than enough to feed every mouth in the world...daily...with leftovers. But He puts it in the hands of men to distribute. How men, and leadership of countries choose to do that determines the outcome. We have seen in Africa for decades hunger and poverty....but when you look at the leadership it makes clear that greed, pride, selfishness and hosts of other things halts the distribution.
In Washington the battle is indeed good over evil, with the health-care bill being the spear head that moves this nation deeper into socialism or retaining the freedoms we've know. Bondage is not of God.... Freedom Is. He is working in Washington in the hearts and minds of the representatives there....they choose which side they are on and the outcome will be determined by those choices..
Here I sit among the vapor,
Some da-ned fool stole all the paper,
and I will dispense with the last two verses. ;-D
In post six did you not say that that scripture was meant for the Israel of those days and not modern times? That is the way I read it.
