God Loves Israel

King David reflects on the goodness of the one true God who loves the people of Israel.

1Ch 17:20  O LORD, there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
1Ch 17:21  And what one nation in the earth is like thy people Israel, whom God went to redeem to be his own people, to make thee a name of greatness and terribleness, by driving out nations from before thy people, whom thou hast redeemed out of Egypt?
1Ch 17:22  For thy people Israel didst thou make thine own people for ever; and thou, LORD, becamest their God.
1Ch 17:23  Therefore now, LORD, let the thing that thou hast spoken concerning thy servant and concerning his house be established for ever, and do as thou hast said.
1Ch 17:24  Let it even be established, that thy name may be magnified for ever, saying, The LORD of hosts is the God of Israel, even a God to Israel: and let the house of David thy servant be established before thee
The God of Israel is the Almighty God. He chose Israel as his people, through which an eternal king would be born from the house and lineage of King David. The other nations have their gods and their prophets, but only the God of Israel is the true God and creator of all. The good news is this one true God loves you and wants to give you eternal life through faith in the only begotten Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.
John 1:9  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
John 1:10  He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
John 1:11  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
Jonh 1:12  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
John 1:13  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
John 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Put away all of your gods and come to the only true God who loves you and will give you eternal life. If your god hates Israel, then he is not the one true God, because the God of Israel loves Israel and has given all nations the hope of salvation through faith in their Messiah, Jesus Christ. I love the God of Israel.
