Under His Provision and Protection

Let me give you an outline of this entire chapter which will help you to put everything into its context:
• Verses 1-5 are a summary from the birth to the ascension of Jesus Christ.
• Verse 6 shows the Jews on a constant run.
• Verses 7-14 reveal the reasons why the Jews are on a constant run during the second half of the tribulation period. Satan has been cast down to earth.
• Verses 15-17 describe Satan’s persecution of the remnant, the believing Jews.
GOD ENTERED INTO A COVENANT RELATIONSHIP WITH ABRAHAM, the father of Isaac and grand-father of Jacob. It is Jacob which wrestled with God until God changed his name to ISRAEL and blessed Israel.
I need to explain at this time what a COVENANT RELATIONSHIP MEANS.
But first, let me say what it DOES NOT MEAN:
The covenants contained in the Bible are absolutes, which means, that they cannot be changed. God initiated them and chose the people with which he entered into a covenant relationship. This covenant relationship HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE THEOLOGICAL COVENANTS PREACHED AND DEFENDED BY THE COVENANT THEOLOGIAN OF OUR DAYS.
