“We were not listening. We were not listening to old people. We had removed any resemblance of spirituality from the movement…Not having a spiritual base, not acknowledging the greatness of God, not saying we can’t do this without God, we have no solid ground.

God selected the Hebrews, to be his chosen people.

“For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth”

They were chosen to carry out the will of God and to be an example for how the world should act. The Hebrews were the people God that God chose Jesus to descend from, meaning Jesus was a Hebrew.

The covenant that God established with them (our ancestors) was conditional. If we kept the covenant then we would have our own land, live in peace and prosper as a
