Separate Links, Still Connected

Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed ... and went in pursuit ... and he and his servants attacked them. ... So he brought back ... his brother Lot and his goods, as well as the women and the people. (Genesis 14:14-16 NKJV)

Blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved.
(Romans 11:25-26 NKJV)

"How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?" ... It was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed. (Revelation 6:10-11 NKJV)

God does not fully separate His people: Abraham and Lot, Israel and Gentiles, fellow servants and brethren—the day comes when we find ourselves reconnected to those we thought separate. In these last days, Jews and Christians increasingly find themselves jointly persecuted. War is ugly, and though we would rather not get involved, it has a way of finding us (whether U.S. or believers). If we do not bless those whom God has chosen, we will suffer with those who curse them.

Abba, Father, thank You for choosing to make not just Israel but also Christ-lovers Your own children. Though we remain separated for now, please unite our hearts in love for YHWH, and for each other.
