An autoimmune disease is a malfunction of the immune system in which the body attacks its own tissue. What exactly causes an autoimmune disease is still unknown, and it is incurable. At best, treatment can relieve symptoms.

Success of the nation

Not every individual among the people of Israel is committed to the success of the nation. There are also those who dedicate their lives to weakening, even dissolving the Jewish nation. This problem can be seen right from the beginning of the chronicles of the Jewish people. The pathogen for this autoimmune disease, which accompanies the people of Israel throughout its history, existed early on.

Abraham, the father of the nation of Israel, fathered Ishmael and Isaac. While still a child, Ishmael proved to be a “wild ass.” His hand was “against all, and the hand of all against him.” Abraham was forced to intervene to prevent Ishmael’s character from taking root in Isaac.

One response to “Israel’s debilitating autoimmune disease”

  1. Disciple 1978 says:

    Paul warned that wolves would always arise in the flock. Acts 20:29,30. The church continues to go through many reformations. In the same way Israel had to be frequently pruned and cleansed by the divine hand. Heaven itself was divided when Satan led the angels in a rebellion. So too on earth wherever a good thing is developed a wicked use is found for it. The fear of the Lord should keep us all in check, but that fear is compromised by our worldly lives. The desires of the flesh ever rail against good sense and holiness. Rulers, from nations to households, often want their kingdoms in this world. Messiah brought us a kingdom that was not of this world. Jn 8:23; 18:36. This offer is open to Jews and Gentiles, but men still want their own kingdoms. They become wolves among the sheep.
