Synopsis

Gods Vineyard, Israel is a book about Gods relationship with Israel. It is an exposition of Israelsspiritual condition, starting with Gods deliverance of Israel from slavery and His ongoingintervention in their lives up to their spiritual decline.According to 1 Corinthians 10:11, Israel serves as an example for instruction for those upon whomthe end of the ages have come, i.e. those who live in the latter days.Israels turning to idolatry, false gods and syncretism (the fusion of holy with unholy) led to theirfalling away from God. Th e same falling away of the church is mentioned by Paul in the secondbook of Th essalonians which is indicative of the time toward the end of the age or the fulfi llmentof the times of the Gentiles.A clear pattern emerges from those who are delivered from the kingdom of darkness into salvationand then the yearning for their previous condition. After God delivered Israel from Egypt, theIsraelites yearned for their past. Th ereby, the repeated exhortation from Jesus Christ and others inthe New Testament serve to explain the necessity to persevere unto the end.Th e similarity between ancient Israel and the modern church is noteworthy and one can onlyunderstand what is and will happen to the church through the example of Israel. Th is instruction isnot only prophetic but serves as clear instruction and warning for modern believers.An analysis of idolatry and the consequences thereof explain the past, current and future probabilityof life as we know it. Contrary to world opinion of the causes and solutions to pollution, the Bibleclearly states that it is the spiritual condition of mankind that determines the state of the earth.Th e Old Testament asserts that when Israel repented God often relented of the calamities Heintended to send to them due to their idolatry. Gods Vineyard, Israel makes for interesting andrelevant reading for all people and often provides Gods perspective rather than peoples opinionsor speculations.Gods Vineyard, Israel provides examples of Gods wrath and ancient judgments with theoverwhelming message that few are saved! In between the severity of Gods dealings with Israeland their ongoing rebellion is chapter 4, Gods solution to humanity, His Son, Jesus Christ whosecoming was prophesied throughout the Old Testament, the One who embodied Gods grace andlove for humanity!Gods Vineyard is pertaining to the times in which we live, whereby increasingly people are fallingaway from the truth, seeking to create their own reality. It is a book led by the Holy Spirit of Godand therefore relevant to the current spiritual condition that prevails throughout the world.
