Did anyone ever think to ask WHY God raised up the ancient nation Israel, denying them His Holy Spirit and eternal salvation — except their prophets only?
I’ve been writing on chapter 6 of my forthcoming book, A Voice Cries Out, covering this very question. I hope to have the book ready for distribution to our membership at this year’s Feast of Tabernacles. Meanwhile, it is being published by installments, a chapter a month, in The Plain Truth. But this chapter 6 will not appear in The Plain Truth until about August. I thought our membership might be interested in a preview of it, so I’m including it in my lead article in this issue of The Good News.
Why “chosen people”?
Why were Old Testament Israelites called God’s “chosen people” — and still denied the Holy Spirit to beget them into eternal life?
“Chosen” — for what? To be teacher’s pet? For special favors above other nations? Was God a respecter of nations?
To understand, we need to start with Adam and Eve. It is an intriguing story, and I have never seen it put together in this manner before. The true reason for ancient Israel is an integral part of God’s supreme master plan.
