No one can wave aside the acknowledged truth of God with "What difference does it make? This assumes the right of the individual to look the Word of God over, select what suits his whim or fancy and discard the balance. But Paul made it very plain to Timothy that. The Bible, as given by God is a complete whole. It stands or falls in one piece. It declares the whole counsel of God and it required nothing short of the whole book to declare it. Otherwise, much of it would not have been written.
It must be accepted in its entirety. It is not, therefore, within the province of man to go through the book, sorting and picking this and that, which he proposes to accept and say with regard to the remainder "What difference does it make" , To do so is the height of presumption. However, in the fact that we are Israel, there is opened up a vast field of Biblical knowledge upon which many eminent scholars have bestowed years of careful study and painstaking research.
There is presented, for our enlightenment, a great volume of information, involving the origin and history of the various races of the earth, the divine plan for the ages, the division of the world into the Israel and Gentile nations, the marvelous covenants made by God, the exceeding broad sweep of the atonement, the place allotted the Church in God's world program, the meaning and movement of the present world crisis, who constitute the Kingdom of God on earth, what it will be when it comes, Israel's work for the new age, the new order under the reign of Christ and the ultimate restitution of all things which were lost in Eden.
This is but the briefest outline of the great educational field that lies before the student of Israel Truth, and it certainly is no compliment to ones intelligence to flip it aside with "What difference does it make? It made a great difference to the scholars who dug deep into the Bible and human history to bring forth the golden nuggets of truth concerning the people God chose for His name.
It makes the difference of being informed or ignorant of God's purposes, the place He gave His elect people in His program and His march down the centuries toward fulfillment. It makes the difference of merely being saved by the skin of one's teeth, as Job put it, and being an intelligent student of the Bible and world events, thus being "thoroughly furnished unto all good works" in our day and generation. What a difference exists between the mental and spiritual appetite of the evader of truth and that of the prophet Jeremiah when he said:.
God, in His wisdom, chose Israel to be used by Him in His great plan for the transformation of a lost world. He also wrote a large portion of the Bible to tell us about Israel's part in that plan. Can we not see that to select only a portion of the Book, and that only the portion which pertains to one's individual salvation, is to simply tell God that He was silly in furnishing any more?
Can we not see that it sets up the finite in judgment of the Infinite? It practically declares Him to be foolish in doing any more or revealing any more than would get us saved eternally. Allowing ample space in the Bible for the presentation of the Gospel to the individual, God wrote about five sevenths of the Bible as His message to the nations. An important integral part, related to almost every phase of this revelation, is the great nation Israel, promised by God to Abraham.
Five sevenths is a lot of Bible to scrap, brother.
Ulukau: The Hawaiian kingdom, vol. 1, , foundation and transformation
The hypercritical at their worst do not have the temerity to attempt any more; and they are busy all of the time knifing the Scriptures, cutting out and deleting. One of their modern achievements is called "The Polychrome Bible," in which they have made the book an infidel aurora borealis by printing the words they criticise in the various colors of the rainbow. But the "What difference does it make?
The infidel critics do their work piecemeal, while these believer critics do theirs wholesale. They virtually say: 'This will I accept, enjoy and live; but God's message to the nations -'What difference does it make? Earnest Bible students have found the Israel Truth to be the key which opens up the Bible from the first promise made at the Fall, until Jesus delivers up the finished Kingdom unto God. It may be likened to a spiritual thread which runs through almost every chapter of Bible history, every doctrine, symbol, type, promise, covenant and act of God: The thread which, when found, makes possible the unraveling of most of the mysteries of the Word.
This is the reason that everyone who has conscientiously sought and found the Israel Truth has declared the Bible to be a "new book;" consistent, harmonious, symmetrical, progressive and most satisfying to mind and soul. Without the Israel Truth, as is evidenced in the commentaries and "helps," the Bible becomes the field of conjectures, an array of wonderful, for the most part, disconnected stories; and a grab-bag of beautiful texts without much of any reference to the context, or where the truth of the text fits in the Divine scheme of things.
We recently met a Southern mountaineer who in his droll manner said that which every Bible student should note: "A text, without the context, is just a pretext. Take the whole Gospel of individual salvation wherever presented in the Word of God, and careful study will almost always disclose the fact that the Israel Truth is the context that makes it plain and sets it in its proper spiritual perspective.
The story of the birth of Jesus is a sample of how the Israel Truth is woven into the warp and woof of His life as He fulfilled prophecies and types which had long before been established and proclaimed in Israel. It can therefore be positively stated that no man can understand even Jesus, His mission and His message, without the Israel key which opens up the treasures of His marvelous life and teaching. If we are Israel, then God has done a stupendous thing.
He has kept faith with Abraham. Centuries ago He made an unconditional, irrevocable, covenant with Abraham to increase and preserve his posterity throughout all generations. And now, here we are, many nations of Israel, right here on the planet after almost 4, years. What kind or grade of Christianity is it that can see in that nothing to excite gratitude, joy and praise for a covenant keeping God?
The importance of origins
The Sweet Singer of Israel wrote some of his most wonderful songs in appreciation of that faithfulness. In the metrical version of Psalm , he sings:. The writers of the four Gospels constantly call attention to God's faithfulness to Abraham. The Apostles, every one of them, gloried in it; - but "What difference does it make? The man who has the blessing of personal salvation is the recipient of a marvelous gift of God in Christ Jesus. He receives what may be called his birthright; by which he becomes heir of God and joint heir with Jesus Christ; one of those to whom God says:.
Bound up in the bundle of life with God and Jesus Christ, there is no spiritual blessing for time or eternity that is not included in the rights of his rebirth - the birthright of grace.
Endless ages will never conclude our praise of God for that blessing. But this does not for a moment warrant the despising and rejecting of the other God given birthright - the birthright of race; which is always done when a man says: "Suppose we are Israel; What difference does it make? It made quite a difference to Esau who despised his birthright of race.
Afterward he found no place for repentance, although he sought it with tears.

The die was cast, his descendants became the Turks of today. The birthright of race made quite a difference to Ishmael, the son of the bond woman, Hagar. His descendants are the Arabs. The birthright of race also made quite a difference to the sons of Keturah, whose descendants are the Brahmins of India.
There is a world of difference in the blessings of race, country, enlightenment and opportunity bestowed upon the descendants of these and that which was bestowed upon the Brahmins, the Arabs, and the Turks. While there is no place here for race pride, there is a large place for grateful joy in the arbitrary goodness of God, and for appreciation of the gifts bestowed by God upon us as a race. The conscientious Christian is certainly among those who follow after righteousness and who seek the Lord.
Isaiah , 2 was written for him.
In that Scripture, God directs him to take two looks of appreciation, joy, thanksgiving and encouragement in birthright of race. Thus it reads:. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah, that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him. In fact, if we be Israel, then that covenant of God was made directly with us; for God definitely stipulates:. Can it be possible that it means nothing to the believer to be chosen of God as an heir of that covenant, which, in all of its ramifications, God unfolds through the remainder of the Scriptures?
Is it a light thing to be the heir of the grand legacy made certain to the Israel people through God's oath to Abraham?

Well, as the present world conditions come toward their conclusion, there will be a mighty multitude who will rejoice that they live under the provisions of that gracious covenant. He established that Kingdom at Sinai. Constituting that Kingdom was twelve-tribed Israel.
