After The Fed Crushed The Middle Class, It Is Targeting The American Family

Tyler Durden's picture

On a number of occasions this month we’ve drawn attention to the divergent fates of the 80% of American workers whose wages are declining and whose general outlook is concomitantly deteriorating, and the other 20%, whose pay is increasing and who generally feel good about their economic future. We also pointed out that with the correlation between wages and consumer spending now nearly perfect at 0.93, depressed wage growth may indeed drag on US economic output going forward. Given this, we weren’t surprised to learn that the biggest threat to traditional American society is in fact class (i.e. income inequality). This is vividly illustrated in a new work by Robert Putnam (of “Bowling Alone” fame). One key observation: race matters far less than it did in decades past and class matters far more. 

From The Economist

Among the educated elite the traditional family is thriving: fewer than 10% of births to female college graduates are outside marriage—a figure that is barely higher than it was in 1970. In 2007 among women with just a high-school education, by contrast, 65% of births were non-marital. Race makes a difference: only 2% of births to white college graduates are out-of-wedlock, compared with 80% among African-Americans with no more than a high-school education, but neither of these figures has changed much since the 1970s. However, the non-marital birth proportion among high-school-educated whites has quadrupled, to 50%, and the same figure for college-educated blacks has fallen by a third, to 25%. Thus the class divide is growing even as the racial gap is shrinking.

As it turns out, having a vast network of Ivy League educated lawyers, doctors, and financiers is extraordinarily helpful in a bind...

At every stage, educated families help their kids in ways that less educated ones do not or cannot. Whereas working-class families have friends who tend to know each other (because they live in the same neighbourhood), professional families have much wider circles. If a problem needs solving or a door needs opening, there is often a friend of a friend (a lawyer, a psychiatrist, an executive) who knows how to do it or whom to ask.

… and when your parents are alums and probably endowment donors, it boosts your chances of getting into college even when, by virtue of extreme intellectual laziness occasioned by a misbegotten sense of entitlement or simply because you’re not very bright, you cannot pass the eighth grade…

Stunningly, Mr Putnam finds that family background is a better predictor of whether or not a child will graduate from university than 8th-grade test scores. Kids in the richest quarter with low test scores are as likely to make it through college as kids in the poorest quarter with high scores (see chart).

Here’s Putnam summing it all up for MarketWatch

“The most important thing about the experience of being young and poor in America is that these kids are really isolated, and really don’t have close ties with anybody,” Putnam told MarketWatch. “They are completely clueless about the kinds of skills and savvy and connections needed to get ahead.”

*  *  *

The real slap in the face though, has to be the fact that while America's poor are imprisoned for petty drug offenses, the bread winners of the country's elite families can perpetrate multibillion dollar financial crimes and, thanks to the networking opportunities that come with belonging to the 1%, be virtually assured that no real punishment with ever be meted out even if said crimes inadvertently collapse the entire global financial system. As we put it in December, "the government is smart enough to realize that it is more lucrative to 'cooperate' with the world's biggest criminal syndicates than to wipe them out and cut off a major source of funding [and] when one is a criminal syndicate, the largest in world history, paying litigation kickbacks in the hundreds of billions to the government is just the cost of "doing business."

Of course this is perhaps all part and parcel of the Fed's implicit attempt to exacerbate inequality in America by equating the "wealth" part of the term "wealth effect" with financial assets. The result of this, despite Janet Yellen's best efforts at explaining to low income Americans that it's a good idea to have assets, is a growing divide between the rich and the poor and this divide is not only getting wider thanks to the central bank's efforts to inflate the value of the very types of assets that the poor are unlikely to own, but is in fact now destroying the American family.

Yes you have [de facto]... Because any time somebody comes on & posts a comment about the mathematically impossible impossible ratio of jews in:

- jurisprudence

 

You make it a point to 'ad hominem' attack that person as being a... What did you call them just the other day... a "Nazi"...

 

So by 'not saying' anything about Palestinians, you are, [combined with your body of work], saying something about Palestinians...

 

You're like one of those 9/11 trolls who actually think Bin Laden & Saddam Hussein were behind the whole thing...

 

~~~ANYWAY

 

We're talking about THE FED here...

 

ALL of them... EVERY SINGLE FUCKING ONE of the Fed chairs [since Bretton Woods was vacated & money counterfeitting essentially became the standard operating procedure], has been a jew... Can you refute that?... [Don't bother to nominate Volcker because he went on to Rothschilds payroll which makes him a crypto]...

I know what he was trying to say, he just made a hash of it.

Also, libtard style, he tried to remove race and ethnicity as factors.  How honest is that?

MsCreant's picture

I don't have the data, but if you run the model with race, controlling for SES, and the percentage of variation explained by race vanishes, or is greatly reduced to a non-significant level, race will turn out to be a spurious correlation and you will find that SES is the better explanation. SES is based on a formula that calculates income, education, and occupation.

I may have read the above wrong, but it sounds like they did this. They mentioned that the gap was getting worse for whites and better for blacks, and SES explained the change.

What is completely insane is the belief that the universe and all in it, the jewel that is earth, the human brain, and how this all perfectly interacts, is a random accident instead of a masterful design. The denial of a designer represents a leap of faith of monumental proportions.  You insult yourself , you must be a fucking Obama voter.

SubjectivObject's picture

If a set of interacting principles is ["somehow"] created that tends toward evolution of matter and sentience and higher/complex forms, should any of the variant [nay random re complex systems] interactions be construed as deific sadism, or just the way things are with the material/phychological context we have on hand to work with? 

Humans have their part to play in the evolution of sentience, to the extent they shirk that responsivility seem correlated with the sadism they unload on each other.  The smart antagonizing/abusing the dull [e.g.: because capitalism] is an example reflecting degeneration of human potential, as the smart themselves do not realized they are still working with the, unconscious, unevolved, self-centered, emotional nature of a mammal to justify the intellectual actions they take without a second thought.

hey what if the universe is random and science is not relative to anything but proven principles(facts). like math. what if a higher power is only a belief? what if matter(the periodic table) contains all that is needed for life? what if -100c to +100c provides the temp range for life as we know it to exist? just asking...

I'm not seeing anything of that perfect interaction.  Western nations are ultra dedicated to destroying themselves by abandoning liberty as their organizing principle, pursuing fiscal and economic madness in pursuit of Utopian crap and financing it by theft by legislature, and enthusiastically embracing their dispossession by third world primitives, hostiles, and parasites.  This is the culmination of centuries of progress wherein we shitcan it all in the last 50 years.  If there's some kind of a Divine Plan in all of that, I be missin' it.

As for the brain, well, it's a marvel that we can just stand up, move, and talk, yes. As for organized, logical thought and a modicum of honesty, self awareness, curiosity, and discipline these strike me as qualities that infect a small percentage of the peeps. What occupies the public "mind" is pretty pathetic and the usual electoral majority is easily swayed by the simplest of lies and manipulations, no less evil for their simplicity. 

No paragon I and no jet-fueled hater of the divine either. I just struggle to see what this Divine Ordering is all about. I'm thinking it's Ghost Busters without the happy ending.

Because we 'christians' were taught since birth that jews are God's chosen people and to go against them will spell immediate doom....so, fear of God is the underlying reason why they are supported so much.

 

Would be interesting to see where the 'Jew's are Gods chosen people" actaully came from....besides the bible (which jew's wrote, right?)...

still asking who the fuck is God? and he or she or an image in your mind chose what? really interesting stuff. the imagery gets interesting for me. just not "seeing" your halogram on my wall.

Seek_Truth's picture

The belief in a chosen race or tribe is due to an error in interpretation of the Scriptures- Galatians chapter 3, as well as many other scriptures makes it very clear that being chosen is due to faith- not due to being part of a tribe or blood or people.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Galatians+3

NOTW777's picture

that is imminently untrue and a gross distortion of the bible;  YOUR interpretation requires deleting substantial portions of scripture and many end time prophecies

Seek_Truth's picture

You are misled. The meaning is clear- one promise- one seed (not seeds). That seed is Jesus Christ, and no other. There is no salvation, no chosen, outside of faith in Him alone.

NOTW777's picture

I believe the bible over you.  You are purposely omitting numerous scriptures that disprove your argument.

Seek_Truth's picture

You don't know the Bible. Here, for your review, is the proof- straight from the Bible:

As I stated, one can easily see you are wrong by reading Galatians chapter 3, however, here's a more comprehensive discussion:

In whom is God’s promise to Abraham fulfilled?

The Bible clearly states:“It is not as though God’s word had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel. Nor because they are his descendants are they all Abraham’s children. On the contrary, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.” In other words, it is not the natural children who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham’s offspring.” –Romans 9:6-8

ONE PROMISE- A CONDITIONAL PROMISE – TWO POSSIBLE OUTCOMES:

By way of review, what is the promise? Abraham was given the promise:

1 The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you.
2 "I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."  -Genesis 12:1-3

THIS is the promise God spoke to Abraham!

As discussed earlier, God would make another promise to Israel. Now, for a moment let’s take a look at that promise:

2 Chronicles 7:19-22 "But if you turn away and forsake the decrees and commands I have given you and go off to serve other gods and worship them, 20then I will uproot Israel from my land, which I have given them, and will reject this temple I have consecrated for my Name. I will make it a byword and an object of ridicule among all peoples. 21And though this temple is now so imposing, all who pass by will be appalled and say, ‘Why has the Lord done such a thing to this land and to this temple?’ 22People will answer, ‘Because they have forsaken the Lord, the God of their fathers, who brought them out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshiping and serving them—that is why he brought all this disaster on them.’”

Deuteronomy 4:27 The LORD will scatter you among the peoples, and only a few of you will survive among the nations to which the LORD will drive you.

Deuteronomy 28:64 Then the LORD will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship other gods--gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your fathers have known.

Leviticus 26:33 I will scatter you among the nations and will draw out my sword and pursue you. Your land will be laid waste, and your cities will lie in ruins.

Nehemiah 1:8 "Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, 'If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations,

Psalm 44:11 You gave us up to be devoured like sheep and have scattered us among the nations.

Psalm 106:27 make their descendants fall among the nations and scatter them throughout the lands.

Isaiah 1:7 Your country is desolate, your cities burned with fire; your fields are being stripped by foreigners right before you, laid waste as when overthrown by strangers.

Jeremiah 7:34 I will bring an end to the sounds of joy and gladness and to the voices of bride and bridegroom in the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem, for the land will become desolate.

Jeremiah 9:16 I will scatter them among nations that neither they nor their fathers have known, and I will pursue them with the sword until I have destroyed them.

Jeremiah 13:24 I will scatter you like chaff driven by the desert wind.

Jeremiah 15:4 I will make them abhorrent to all the kingdoms of the earth because of what Manasseh son of Hezekiah king of Judah did in Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 31:10 "Hear the word of the LORD, O nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands: 'He who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over his flock like a shepherd.'

Ezekiel 5:2 When the days of your siege come to an end, burn a third of the hair with fire inside the city. Take a third and strike it with the sword all around the city. And scatter a third to the wind. For I will pursue them with drawn sword.

Ezekiel 12:15 "They will know that I am the LORD, when I disperse them among the nations and scatter them through the countries.

Ezekiel 20:23 Also with uplifted hand I swore to them in the desert that I would disperse them among the nations and scatter them through the countries,

Ezekiel 22:5 I will disperse you among the nations and scatter you through the countries; and I will put an end to your uncleanness.

Amos 9:4 Though they are driven into exile by their enemies, there I will command the sword to slay them. I will fix my eyes upon them for evil and not for good."

Zechariah 7:14 I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations, where they were strangers. The land was left so desolate behind them that no one could come or go. This is how they made the pleasant land desolate.'" Deuteronomy 4:27 The LORD will scatter you among the peoples, and only a few of you will survive among the nations to which the LORD will drive you. Nehemiah 1:8 "Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, 'If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, Ezekiel 23:27 So I will put a stop to the lewdness and prostitution you began in Egypt. You will not look on these things with longing or remember Egypt anymore. Ezekiel 23:48 "So I will put an end to lewdness in the land, that all women may take warning and not imitate you. Ezekiel 24:11 Then set the empty pot on the coals till it becomes hot and its copper glows so its impurities may be melted and its deposit burned away.  Yes, this, too was a promise- that if Israel forsook their God, their God would do likewise to them- as a nation.  This means that as individuals, those who place their faith in God will be saved, just like the gentiles! It is by Faith that all individuals are saved, not by blood or anything else, because Jesus paid in blood as a ransom for all who put faith in Him. So what was the result of Israel’s infidelity towards God?

18So the Lord was very angry with Israel and removed them from his presence. Only the tribe of Judah was left, 19and even Judah did not keep the commands of the Lord their God. They followed the practices Israel had introduced. 20Therefore the Lord rejected all the people of Israel; he afflicted them and gave them into the hands of plunderers, until he thrust them from his presence.  21When he tore Israel away from the house of David, they made Jeroboam son of Nebat their king. Jeroboam enticed Israel away from following the Lord and caused them to commit a great sin. 22The Israelites persisted in all the sins of Jeroboam and did not turn away from them 23until the Lord removed them from his presence, as he had warned through all his servants the prophets. So the people of Israel were taken from their homeland into exile in Assyria, and they are still there.  – 2 Kings 17:18-23

1 Samuel 8:7 And the Lord told him” “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king.”

Ezekiel 36:19 I dispersed them among the nations, and they were scattered through the countries; I judged them according to their conduct and their actions.

Judges 2:14 In his anger against Israel the LORD handed them over to raiders who plundered them. He sold them to their enemies all around, whom they were no longer able to resist.

2 Kings 15:29 In the time of Pekah king of Israel, Tiglath-Pileser king of Assyria came and took Ijon, Abel Beth Maacah, Janoah, Kedesh and Hazor. He took Gilead and Galilee, including all the land of Naphtali, and deported the people to Assyria.

Psalm 53:5 There they were, overwhelmed with dread, where there was nothing to dread. God scattered the bones of those who attacked you; you put them to shame, for God despised them.

Jeremiah 15:1 Then the LORD said to me: "Even if Moses and Samuel were to stand before me, my heart would not go out to this people. Send them away from my presence! Let them go!

God fulfilled His conditional promise. Repeatedly, God kept the nation of Israel reminded of their covenant with Him, yet they consistently broke this covenant, like a cheating wife. God first scattered the northern ten tribe kingdom of Israel, using the Assyrians. Shortly thereafter, God used the Babylonians to scatter the southern kingdom, Judah.  Years later, their ancestors in Jerusalem under Roman domination pleaded, regarding their role in the execution of the Messiah:

“When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.” –Matthew 27:25

The nation of Israel was no more. First they rejected God as their King, and repeatedly rejected Him as their God. In return God scattered the descendants of Jacob aka Israel. God had already planned a New Covenant to replace the Old Covenant.

THE NEW COVENANT

We discussed earlier that God instituted a new covenant. Here we will examine the Scriptural record.

"The time is coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. -Jeremiah 31:31

Here we see that it was God’s plan all along to institute this new covenant. The Old Covenant prefigured the New in every way except one- the New Covenant would last forever! And it was made available for anyone, “Jew” or Gentile, to part of Israel through faith, just as it all started, with Abraham, the “father of faith”.

Christ clarified who is the seed of the promise and institutes the new covenant: “For this reason it is by faith, that it might be in accordance with grace, in order that the promise may be certain to all the descendants, not only to those who are of the Law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, as it is written, "A father of many nations have I made you" – Romans 4:16-17

If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.” - Galatians 3:29

Note- The Bible books of Romans and Galatians were written to the Gentiles, Romans in Rome and Gauls in Galatia. Here they are told that they are Abraham’s offspring. The only way that could be is because Abraham’s offspring are not counted by blood, but rather by faith.

And you brethren, like Isaac, are children of promise - Galatians 4:28 Here these same Gauls are called brothers, like Isaac, and children of the promise. Clearly the promise was never inherited by blood but rather through faith alone.

“Sarah received ability to conceive...since she considered Him faithful who had promised; therefore, also, there was born of one man, and him as good as dead at that, as many descendants as the stars of heaven in number, and innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore.” – Hebrews 11:11-12.

Who are these “descendants” in huge numbers? The latest estimate (2012) according to Jewish World www.jpeople.com is 13,746,100. Of these, as established earlier, only 5% , or 637, 305 descend from Jacob aka Israel. Neither of these numbers could possibly be interpreted as fulfilling the promise!

This New Covenant based on faith in Jesus Christ replaced the Old Covenant:

The point of what we are saying is this: We do have such a high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven - Hebrews 8:1

But God found fault with the people and said : "The time is coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. -Hebrews 8:8

By calling this covenant "new," he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear. -Hebrews 8:13

For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant. -Hebrews 9:15

[ The Parable of the Weeds ] Jesus told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. -Matthew 13:24; He answered, "The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. - Matthew 13:37; The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, - Matthew 13:38

Here Jesus makes clear that the sons of the kingdom are “good seed” by virtue of faith, by contrast, the weeds are the sons of the evil one, by virtue of lack of faith. Bloodline has no bearing on determining who are wheat and weeds- only faith!

The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say "and to seeds," meaning many people, but "and to your seed," meaning one person, who is Christ. - Galatians 3:16

Did you read that? The prophetic “seed” of Abraham is none other than Jesus Christ- it is only by putting faith in Him that we become inheritors of the promise.

What, then, was the purpose of the law? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come. The law was put into effect through angels by a mediator. - Galatians 3:19. Indeed, the law (the old mosaic law covenant) was given to Israel “because of transgressions (sin) until Jesus would institute the New Covenant!

In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you. - Luke 22:20; In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me." – 1 Corinthians 11:25. Christ commanded that we remember him by partaking of the cup of the new covenant, which symbolizes His blood poured out on behalf of us, along with the bread symbolizing his body.

1Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, like some people, letters of recommendation to you or from you? 2You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody. 3You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
4Such confidence as this is ours through Christ before God. 5Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. 6He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 7Now if the ministry that brought death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with glory, so that the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory, fading though it was, 8will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious? 9If the ministry that condemns men is glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness! 10For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. 11And if what was fading away came with glory, how much greater is the glory of that which lasts! 12Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. 13We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while the radiance was fading away. 14But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. 15Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. 16But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect[a] the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. -2 Corinthians 3:1-18.             So, all those, no matter what ethnicity, whether Jew or Gentile, by putting faith in Jesus Christ, “are a letter from Christ … written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts … ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter [the old mosaic law] but of the Spirit [the new covenant]; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. In fact, “since we have such a hope, we are very bold. We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while the radiance was fading away[We are to let our light shine, reflecting God’s glory]. But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read [the veil refers to the curtain between the Holy and Most Holy of the old covenant temple, the place where God’s presence is]. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.” Since we are bold, and because only in Christ is the veil taken away, that is, we are in god’s presence as if in His Holy of Holies, we do not fear Jew or Gentile and speak the truth. The truth is that there is no salvation for Jew nor Gentile until they accept Jesus Christ as their redeemer!

The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire." – Luke 3:9. That is true for both Jew and Gentile.

But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, “You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 “Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance; 9 and do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham for our father’; for I say to you that from these stones God is able to raise up children to Abraham. 10 “The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.–Matthew 3:7-10, John the Baptist. The Jewish leaders were warned by John the Baptist that they were not “special”, that is, God could make children of Abraham out of stones. He preached repentance publicly symbolized by full water immersion (Baptism), in anticipation of entering into the New Covenant as born again children of God.

"And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree." - Romans 11:17. Both natural branches (descendants of Jacob) and wild branches (Gentiles) would be grafted into the olive tree(symbolizing the Holy Spirit initiated New Covenant through Jesus Christ).

I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. 2God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah—how he appealed to God against Israel: 3“Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me”a? 4And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”b 5So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. 6And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.c 7What then? What Israel sought so earnestly it did not obtain, but the elect did. The others were hardened, 8as it is written:
“God gave them a spirit of stupor,
eyes so that they could not see
and ears so that they could not hear,
to this very day.”d
9And David says:
“May their table become a snare and a trap,
a stumbling block and a retribution for them.
10May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see,
and their backs be bent forever.”
"Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious. 12But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their fullness bring!
13I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I make much of my ministry 14in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. 15For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? 16If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches.
17If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, 18do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. 19You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.” 20Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. 21For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.
22Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off. 23And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!
25I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. 26And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:
“The deliverer will come from Zion;
he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.
27And this is my covenant with them
when I take away their sins.”
28As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies on your account; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs, 29for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable. 30Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, 31so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may now receive mercy as a result of God’s mercy to you. 32For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. Romans 11:1-32.

It is made clear in the above chapter of Romans that under the New Covenant, a remnant of both descendants of Jacob and a remnant of Gentiles would be grafted into the “olive tree” of salvation. This “olive tree” under the New Covenant is spiritual Israel, those Jews and Gentiles saved by grace. Who is the “root of this olive tree”? None other than Jesus Christ, who is the only way any human can be saved. This free gift is available to every human.

“I speak the truth in Christ—I am not lying, my conscience confirms it in the Holy Spirit— I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, those of my own race, the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption as sons; theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises. Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of Christ, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen.
It is not as though God’s word had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel. Nor because they are his descendants are they all Abraham’s children. On the contrary, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.” In other words, it is not the natural children who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham’s offspring. For this was how the promise was stated: “At the appointed time I will return, and Sarah will have a son.”
Not only that, but Rebekah’s children had one and the same father, our father Isaac. Yet, before the twins were born or had done anything good or bad—in order that God’s purpose in election might stand: not by works but by him who calls—she was told, “The older will serve the younger.” Just as it is written: “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.”
What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all! For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”
It does not, therefore, depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden.
One of you will say to me: “Then why does God still blame us? For who resists his will?” But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’” Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use?
What if God, choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath—prepared for destruction? What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory— even us, whom he also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles? As he says in Hosea:
“I will call them ‘my people’ who are not my people; and I will call her ‘my loved one’ who is not my loved one,” and, “It will happen that in the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ they will be called ‘sons of the living God.’”
Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea,
only the remnant will be saved. For the Lord will carry out his sentence on earth with speed and finality.”  It is just as Isaiah said previously: “Unless the Lord Almighty had left us descendants, we would have become like Sodom, we would have been like Gomorrah.”
What then shall we say? That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have obtained it, a righteousness that is by faith; but Israel, who pursued a law of righteousness, has not attained it. Why not? Because they pursued it not by faith but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the “stumbling stone.” As it is written: “See, I lay in Zion a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” -Romans 9:1-33

Yes, the Israelite nation stumbled on the stone in Mount Zion- Jesus Christ: “When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.” - Matthew 27:25

The ancient kingdom of Israel abandoned God, while a remnant put faith in Him and became Christians, God invited Gentiles to do likewise, and a remnant of these became Christians, until Christ returns. While the ancient kingdom of Israel is no more, there is a spiritual Israel, a “nation” of Jews and Gentiles alike from around the globe, putting faith in God and known by Him. This is the “Israel” of the New Covenant!

The modern secular nation of Israel is not the Biblical nation of Israel

It has been established historically that only 5% of this nations “Jewish” population descend from Jacob aka Israel. It has been established that the ancient nation of Israel is no more. Now ponder this: If a modern day Garden of Eden were created in the area of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers would this be the Biblical “Garden of Eden?” Of course not, no more than the modern day nation of Israel has anything in common with the Biblical Israel, other than its geographical location.

Who was behind the establishment of the modern nation of Israel?

The modern day nation of Israel is a political, secular construct, that, other than its location, has nothing to do with the Biblical nation of Israel. This modern nation was founded by means of the Balfour declaration, at the behest of Walter Rothschild, notorious for using the power of money and usury for unjust profit. (Include more about US getting into WW1 and 2, and more on the Balfour doc)

Does the modern nation of Israel worship God? Which God?

The modern day nation of Israel uses as their symbol, their flag, the six pointed star, the symbol of Remphan (also translated as Repham, Rephan, Chiun, Moloch, Saturn), the Seal of Solomon the Apostate. (Acts 7:43, Amos 5:26, 1 Kings 11:4-7) This is a symbol that originated in ancient Egypt, it is two pyramids- one points to the heavens and the other to the underworld. It has six sides to its interior, six pyramids laid on its interior, and six angles.

This six pointed star http://rr-bb.com/archive/index.php/t-10958.html was brought to the Jewish people by Solomon after his marriage to the daughter of Pharaoh in 922 BC. It became known as the Seal of Solomon in Egyptian witchcraft and occultism. Against Gods instructions, Solomon took 700 wives and 300 concubines, Egyptians, Moabites, Ammonites, Sidonians and Hittites. (1 Kings 11:1) He was warned by God that if he did so he would turn away and worship the false gods of his wives. This he did. (1 Kings 11:2-4) Solomon gave himself up to worshipping “Ashtoreth the God of the Sidonians, and Molek the detestable god of the Ammonites.”(1 Kings 11:5). “…Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the detestable god of Moab, and for Molek the detestable god of the Ammonites. He did the same for all his foreign wives, who burned incense and offered sacrifices to their gods.” (1 Kings 11:7-8) These sacrifices included human sacrifice, orgies, prostitution, drunkenness, homosexuality, and other vile practices. God swore He would take all but one tribe from the rulership of Solomon’s son, Reheboam(1 Kings 1:13). This one tribe was the tribe of Judah, from which we get “Judaism” and “Jew”.

The hexagram faded from Jewish usage (except among Jewish occultists- Kabbalists) for 2,600 years. It reappeared in approximately 1800 in Germany, it was adopted by Mayer Amschel Rothschild as his family coat of arms. The “Red Shield” (Rothshild) familly’s banking and financial empire is the only recorded use of the symbol until 1873, when the six pointed star was also adopted by the Jewish Publication Society.

 

Who, or what, is Biblical Israel?

Who are the promises made to?

It is time for many Christians to become un-confused, as they are Israel, not the modern day nation of Israel that has nothing to do with the new covenant or current events that are the fulfillment of prophecy.

There's lots more proof too. Wanna discuss genetics? Language? History? Current events? Palestinian link to Jacob? US $ support of Israel? Zionist links to banking (history from Babylon, money changers, Florence, Rome, Rothschilds), media, entertainment, etc?

They all point to the fact that there is only one way, one faith, one life- through faith in Jesus Christ- no other way.
