27  And Hashem created man in His image, in the image of Hashem He created him; male and female He created them.

כז  וַיִּבְרָא אֱלֹהִים אֶת־הָאָדָם בְּצַלְמוֹ בְּצֶלֶם אֱלֹהִים בָּרָא אֹתוֹ זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה בָּרָא אֹתָם׃

 1:27 And Hashem created man in His image, in the image of Hashem He created him; male and female He created them.

The creation of Adam and Even on day six of creation is often regarded as the pinnacle of creation. Since the beginning of time, the relationships between humans and Hashem (God) has been complex and dynamic. Genesis 3 tells of the sin of Adam and Eve, which results in the couple being banished from Gan Eden (Garden of Eden). Following this sin, the land’s prosperity becomes a means of measuring man’s adherence to Hashem; for the Jewish nation, this means following God’s rules and keeping His Torah (Bible). When the Jewish nations adheres to the word of Hashem, Hashem demonstrates his approval through the flourishing of the Land of Israel. Scholars and historians alike have noted that in periods of Jewish exile from the Land of Israel, the land lay fallow and uninhabitable. In the past 70 years, since the Jews returned to Israel from the four corners of the world and have been following the commandments outlined in the Torah, the Land of Israel has been prophetically transformed from a wasteland into a blooming and prosperous country.

    John 1:1, In the beginning, was the Word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God.
    Genesis 1:27
    Hashem created man in His image(Yahshua), in the image of Hashem He created HIM(Yahshua); male and female He(Yahshua) created them(man).

    So God made the image of Yahshua for the word and then the word made man.

    What the Lord God is doing in Israel is not because Israelite are faithfull to God but because of unchangeable faithfulness of God himself to keep his own promise to restore his people inspite of the peoples' disobedience. God of Israel and of the nations is a faithful God so Praise and Hallelujah to the God of Heaven and earth and the King of kings, the Saviour Jesus Christ.

      So, why are the Jewish people constantly being persecuted? Seems God would care for his faithful followers…
