Israel has begun taking a noticeable role as a world leader which actually was conceived last year as they courageously engaged the Hamas war in the face of ICC and UN Security Council oversight hanging over their head. Israel will take its place as a world leader with more asertion. As you know Israel already leads the world with start up inventions, technology, telecommunications, semi-conductor and solving difficult agricultural and medical challenges. Most importantly Israel has a raizon d' etre or the purpose that justifies a things existence. Israel was designed to be a leadership nation to the entire world and is still in birth pains with regards to this God ascribed objective.
God has given every people group a purpose in relationship to the entire world to make a unique contribution. The ancient Phoenicians contributed mathematics for example that benefited the entire planet. The Greeks contributed literature that are still beloved writings of antiquity for the entire planet to enjoy. Israel is the only nation and people group given the three-fold objective to receive the law directly from God, secondly to disseminate God's law to the entire planet and thirdly to bring forth a Messiah. These laws are the only laws that could keep the planet sound and congruent to God's system and His way of doing things.
The laws I reference are not only the 10-commandments, or the 613 mitzvahs but the category of laws known as Noahide Laws the minimal moral obligations required of all humans given to Noah and his children as they exited the ark. See Library of Congress Document HJ RES 104. Here is an excerpt.
Whereas Congress recognizes the historical tradition of ethical values and principles which are the basis of civilized society and upon which our great Nation was founded;Whereas these ethical values and principles have been the bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization, when they were known as the Seven Noahide Laws; Whereas without these ethical values and principles the edifice of civilization stands in serious peril of returning to chaos; Whereas society is profoundly concerned with the recent weakening of these principles that has resulted in crises that beleaguer and threaten the fabric of civilized society;
The Seven Noahide Laws are as follows:
Do not deny God.
Do not blaspheme God.
Do not murder.
Do not engage in incestuous, adulterous or homosexual relationships.
Do not steal.
Do not eat of a live animal (animal protection concept)
Establish courts/legal system to ensure law and obedience.
The rabbinical Talmud or oral law says it this way. "The children of Noah were commanded with seven commandments: laws, and cursing God, idolatry, illicit sexuality, bloodshed, robbery, and eating flesh from a living animal (Sanhedrin 56a;)
Countries that have adopted Noahide Laws have become first world countries with the highest GNP and all countries that have rejected Noahide Laws are classified still today as developing countries.
In the midst of this two-fold purpose God chose Israel to bring forth our Messiah. Only Israel was set aside to bring forth Messiah who would save the entire world. If it weren't for Judaism there would be no Christianity. The Christian Old Testament is translated verbatim from the Tanakh or the Jewish Bible in a different sequence but the books are the same.
Ronald Reagan for example implemented our National Day of Prayer based on Old Testament concepts. You see Israel has been a leader all along but because they are numerically 18 million world wide as a people group they struggle to step into their ascribed role. You see "the foolish things will confound the wise." See 1 Corinthians 1:26-28. Israel has been given a disertation regarding their raizon d' etre that cannot be refuted and will now take their place to lead globally with prudence and excellence for the most part. There are always renegades who deviate. Israel will emulate leadership to the entire world because this is the only viable alternative but unfortunately there is a significant portion of the Israeli electorate who desire a policy of appeasement and this could change the trajectory but cannot negate what is intended for Israel, it is up to them to walk into their destiny. Finally when every alternative is examined on a probability scale everyone will realize that Israel has no other viable alternative but to step into their ascribed role as world leaders. I'm All In & Hope UR2!
