    I’m a strong supporter of Mr Voight and admire him greatly, but, the Promises were to the Seed of Abraham.

    • elizabeth cohen

      The seed of Abraham through Isaac and no on else. Read your bible.

      • diak0n0s

        Actually, I did.

        Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
        29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs
        according to the promise.

        • RJohnston

          No you never become a Jew, you are Gods child but not a descendent of Abraham.

          • Pfk

            We are descendants according to the promise, through the father of “many” nations.

          • diak0n0s

            No, of course not. But we’re not speaking of Jews.

        • elizabeth cohen

          I know that verse sir. However, there is no place in scripture that says God has forsaken the children of Abraham. Remember the “Greek” was grafted in. The Jew already had that salvation. I have read my bible backwards and forwards for many years, and I do not come away without any other view that the “Abraham’s” children are not the apple of God’s eye. He made them a promise and it is one He will never break, otherwise we can call him a liar. God is not a liar and He does not break His promises.

          • diak0n0s

            You are indeed correct, God will never break His promise, . . .including

            Deuteronomy 11:12 It is a land the LORD your God cares for; the eyes of the LORD your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to its end.

            13 So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today–to love the LORD your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul–

            14 then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and oil.

            15 I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.

            16 Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them.

            17 Then the LORD’s anger will burn against you, and he will shut the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce, and you will soon perish from the good land the LORD is giving you.

            and. . .

            Deuteronomy 30:14
            No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your
            heart so you may obey it.

            15 See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and
            destruction

            16 For I command you today to love the LORD your God,
            to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

            17 But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them,

            18 I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.’

            and

            John 8:33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”

            34 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.
            35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son
            belongs to it forever.
            36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be
            free indeed.
            37 I know you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are ready to kill
            me, because you have no room for my word.
            38 I am telling you what I have seen in the
            Father’s presence, and you do what you have heard from your father.”

            39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered. “If you were
            Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would do the things Abraham did.

            and

            Matthew 3:9- And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham.

            10 The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.

        Has anyone noticed who offers scripture and who does not?

    • RowdyBear

      Thank you, sir — I’m done with the Globo-Zionists, period. Do some research before you comment fools.

      “I will bless those that bless you, and curse those that curse you”

      • diak0n0s

        Yes, a great promise.

        And we who belong to the Seed are indeed blessed.

  • Vital Information

    I like what he said, but I don’t even need to go to the Bible, really. Israel is simply a lone, enlightened outpost of democracy and modern civilization in a region replete with aggressively intolerant, violent, backward-thinking adherents to a way of life that condones and even promotes rule by force.

    • Well Done

      That area was a backwater of inbreeding and tribal rivalry a long time before Western OR Islamic influences affected it. There can only be one way to “solve” aggressive, intolerant violence, and it’s NOT passive tolerance.

    • diak0n0s

      I don’t think you can present anything if it’s not with the Bible.

  • beachmike

    John: unfortunately, the US DID elect the wrong guy, and it’s leading to disaster! This disaster might include Iran getting nuclear weapons.

  • Guest

    The modern state of Israel is not the biblical Israel. The land of modern Israel was stolen from the Palestinian Arabs.

    • Jesse Schorle

      Correct,but the Biblical borders for Israel were to be from the Great Sea(Mediterranean)to the Euphrates River.Now,who stole who’s land?

    • Well Done

      There has never been a state called “palestine”. “Biblical” Israel existed precisely where modern Israel is, but much larger. “Palestinians” were renters on the land called Israel and left voluntarily. They have no right of return, and you can’t “steal” land from renters. So, it would appear, Mr. Guest, that you are utterly full of shiite. Are you an inbred moslem or just a juvenile?

      • diak0n0s

        If you think they left “voluntarily” then you may consider researching the
        Deir Yassin massacre of 1948.

    • RJohnston

      Wow you are ignorant, you really should think about not posting, you look like a useful idiot.

    • diak0n0s

      Yes. . . . .and many of them that were faithfully serving the Lord Jesus Christ.

      Persecuted by the Jews, the Muslims, and abandoned by the church in America.

    • PapaJ

      Guest needs to study up on his history. First, there is no such thing as “Palestine” — this was the Latin name imposed on the ancient nation of Israel by the Romans in the 1st century, in an attempt to disperse the Jews and wipe the country off the map.

      Second, this region has been conquered and occupied by various overlords since then right on up to the mid-20th century when the British ran things, so there was no one to “steal’ the land from.

      BTW there are plenty of Arabs living in Israel today so it’s not like the Israelis deported all the “Palestinians”.

      Stand with Israel, Americans, or we will regret it one day.

  • Mo

    It is funny to read history in the light of Biblical narrative. Did you guys have little clue how the Bible was put together? If not read or listen to Bart Ehrman biblical scholar about the history of bible.

  • discipleofyahshua

    “jew” does NOT mean Hebrew, and Ysrael is spiritual Ysrael not a land mass!

    • LogicNotHuff

      Au contraire. You are ignoring the miracles of 1948, 1967, and 1973.

    “1. Korinther 2.14. 44: Ihr seid von dem Vater, dem Teufel, und nach eures Vaters Lust wollt ihr tun.”
    since 2014 years, the jews father is the devil …..

    • PapaJ

      Well since Jesus was Jewish I guess you’re not one of His followers Rolf. Your comment sounds like something out of a Hitler Youth pamphlet.

    • PapaJ

      19 Dann sprach Gott: “Ja, aber deine Frau Sarah wird dir einen Sohn gebären, und du wirst ihn Isaak nennen. [D] Ich werde meinen Bund mit ihm als einen ewigen Bund für seine Nachkommen nach ihm. 20 Und für Ismael habe ich dich gehört haben: Ich werde ihn sicherlich segnen, ich will ihn fruchtbar und wird seine Zahlen stark erhöhen. Er wird der Vater von zwölf Herrscher zu sein, und ich werde ihn zu einer großen Nation machen. 21 Aber meinen Bund werde ich mit Isaak, den Sarah wird euch tragen bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt im nächsten Jahr zu schaffen. “

    Plus Jews don’t slaughter, murder, saw off heads, murder British soldiers walking down the street, put kids in harms way and then lie and blame somebody else, crash airplanes on purpose, all of which the PLO does and then says “eeeet eees eeen de chhhhwwooorrrraaaahhhnnnn”.
