God’s Obligation To Israel

Q. I think Americans are expecting God to protect our country just as He does Israel, but God has no Covenant with the US and is not obligated to it. Are there Scriptures to show that judgement will come on the whole world, and God will only keep His Word to save Israel since he is bound to them?

A. In Jeremiah 30:4-11 God was speaking about the end times, calling it the time of Jacob’s trouble. In verse 11 He said He will completely destroy all the nations among which He has scattered the Israelites, which includes the US, but will save Israel.

And In Ezekiel 36:22 He said, “It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone.”

This shows He isn’t going to save Israel because they deserve it, but because He promised to. Israel is the only nation in the history of the world that God has obligated Himself to in this way.
