THE MIRACLE OF ISRAEL:
GOD’S HOLY LAND
Have you ever noticed that the whole Bible is framed by the People of God known as Israel?
Genesis to Deuteronomy declares God chooses them as His People.
Joshua through Esther declares God Gives them His Land
Psalms through Malachi declares God Promises them His Future Plans
Matthew through Jude declares God Uses them as His Ambassadors
Revelation declares God Finishes His Plans for them!
There are all 66 books of God’s Word in one framework- ISRAEL!
During the last few centuries, the world, Christians included, has fallen into a bad habit. We have bought into some early Roman propaganda. We have used the name Palestine, which Roman Emperor Hadrian placed on the country of Israel in 135 A.D., for so long that it has become common usage. This would be as incorrect as calling the Russia of today the “Soviet Union” or referring to Berlin as “East Germany.”
History of the Term Palestine
Where did the term Palestine originate from? How did the world and the church get into the habit of calling the land of Israel “Palestine”? One who has done considerable research on this subject informs us that before 135 A.D., the Romans used the terms Judea and Galilee to refer to the Land of Israel. When Titus destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D., the Roman government struck a coin with the phrase “Judea Capta,” meaning Judea has been captured. The term Palestine was never used in the early Roman designations.
