Why Israel?

for God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah. Then people will settle there and possess it; the children of his servants will inherit it, and those who love his name will dwell there. Psalm 69:35-36

Why Israel? I ask that because there is so much anti-Semetism in the world. There’s even a name for the hatred.

The nation of Israel throughout the years was to be God’s glory on earth. He was going to shine through them, and all the world would see the glory of God.

But why?

Perhaps it can be found in Deuteronomy 7:7-9

“The LORD did not set His affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples. But it was because the LORD loved you and kept the oath He swore to your forefathers that He brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commands.

As Israel continues to be the object of hatred and bigotry around the world, would you pray for her?
