June 20: God’s Unique Relationship with Israel

The Bible is replete with God’s promises and the Prophets’ praise that He is faithful to His covenant.  It is strange that so many who claim to love and believe the Bible are convinced that God has broken those promises by replacing Israel with the Church.

So we must ask, “If God could break His covenant with Israel what would prevent Him from doing it again? Why would anyone trust Him?”

Obviously this can never happen because God is faithful.

Psalm 111:1-9: I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, 
in the assembly of the upright and in the congregation.

The works of the Lord are great, 
 studied by all who have pleasure in them.

His work is honorable and glorious, 
 and His righteousness endures forever.

He has made His wonderful works to be remembered; 
the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.

He has given food to those who fear Him; 
He will ever be mindful of His covenant.

He has declared to His people the power of His works, 
in giving them the heritage of the nations.

The works of His hands are verity and justice; 
all His precepts are sure.

They stand fast forever and ever, 
and are done in truth and uprightness.

He has sent redemption to His people; 
He has commanded His covenant forever:
 holy and awesome is His name.
