The Bible was given as a message of hope and peace to all mankind, in which Israel was chosen as a servant to advance a universal Messianic purpose, and the Creator's promises were conditional in order that their recipients should not pervert them, acting presumptuously as spoiled brats, overindulged children, indeed as the SETTLERS: ISAIAH 42:19 Who [is] blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger [that] I sent? who [is] blind as [he that is] perfect, and blind as the LORD'S servant? The Biblical plan is for Spiritual Israel to inherit the world, not as a vehicle exclusively for Hebrew salvation. The biblical promises are spiritual and universal, and do not justify the grotesque travesty of a second invasion of Canaan by pseudo Joshuas in the West Bank: GENESIS 26:4 And I will make thy (Abraham's) seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; ISAIAH 56:7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices [shall be] accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. 23 And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to [them which were] not my people, Thou [art] my people; and they shall say, [Thou art] my God. JEREMIAH 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make [it]. JEREMIAH 18:6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay [is] in the potter's hand, so [are] ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
