At the Celebrate Israel Parade in NYC today, one is reminded that the followers of the religion of the Old Testament, who after rejecting their Redeemer, have tried to make themselves new and into the redeemers of the world.

The Modern State of Israel is not leading the Jewish people to maturity in the Lord (commensurate with the gifts they’ve been given), but rather to infantilism and absurdity, that ultimately undermines their fulfillment and that of the World.

The best hope for Jews to progress, to be new and have peace in their hearts, is to unite themselves with their Redeemer and the New Covenant — so the Heavenly Father may be all in all.
