|Genesis 22:18 "Through your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have heard and obeyed My voice." [Gen 12:2, 3; 13:16; 22:18; 26:4; 28:14; Acts 3:25, 26; Gal 3:16]|
|Bible Question: Why did god choose Israel as his people? Why not the US or China, why Israel (such hard headed people)?|
Bible Answer: As God He knew that what He has done choosing israel as His people is the perfect thing to do because He is God.
He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
Also, it maybe because of the faithful heart of Abraham.
And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
God sworn to abraham, to bless the seed of Abraham, it so happen that the seed of abraham was Isaac, and Jacob as son of Isaac which was called ISRAEL.
And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
Again, it just so happened that the descendants of abraham are not Chinese, American, Russian, but Israelites.
