God had chosen Israel out of many other nations. We need to recognize that God chose the Hebrew nation to be a representation in history of His eternal and heavenly thought for mankind and the world. It must be clearly understood that God’s sovereign thought lay behind Israel’s election and selection. The workings of God over Israel were based on Divine thought and wisdom. That explains God’s mighty sovereign acts in that nation, His mighty ways in securing that nation. It also explains the infinite pain and patience He had taken in bearing with those people. It also explains God’s grace and love towards a nation that tested Him to an extreme degree. We see God’s sovereignty working in this nation over a period of many years. In constituting this nation, as well as in forming this nation, God initiated many precious precepts. In other words, in constituting and forming the nation of Israel, God brought into play several spiritual features. It is not like the constitution and formation of other nations in the world. It is of great importance for God’s people to understand that God brought in the spiritual features of His very Son, in a symbolic way, to form this nation and constitute it. Their only specialty was that the spiritual features of the Son were constituted in them in a symbolic way.

Joshua 7:16-9:2 Luke 16:1-18 Psalm 82:1-8 Proverbs 13:2-3

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1Corrinthians 10:31
