Abrahamic Covenant Fulfilled in Jesus’ Second Coming

We’re wrapping up our 11 week series on The Common Thread. We’ve seen how the unconditional, never-ending covenant God made with Abraham in Genesis 12 connects the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation. As we conclude, Chris will share what will happen when God ultimately fulfills His promise to Abraham. The Jewish people thought that the Messiah’s first coming would solve Israel’s problems with their enemies. Rome was their enemy and as we know from Scripture, many missed Jesus as the Messiah because He did not lead them to take down Rome. But what many missed is what will happen in the Messiah’s Second Coming. When Jesus returns He will rule from Jerusalem as a King! Do you believe that?

What is it that has been a common theme in this series? It’s faith. By faith Abraham left his life and followed God. Faith caused Moses to stand up to Pharoah. Faith moved David to repent. Faith was the motivating factor as Jesus said, “not My will but Yours, Father.” It is faith in our creator that binds us together!

Israel, My Home DVD

This DVD captures the spirit of the Jewish people as they turned adversity into opportunity. Beautifully filmed to capture the landscapes of the Holy Land, this film is a new look at the state of Israel and the fulfillment of God’s promise. One of the best ways to experience Israel is to see it yourself. But next to that is Israel My Home. Whether you’ve been to Israel or not, we highly encourage anyone who desires to encounter the holy land to purchase this DVD.


Apples of Gold: The Peacemaker

Seeing a man distraught one evening, Zvi approached him and asked if he was okay. When he heard the man had spent all of his money on gambling, Zvi told him he needed to find peace. He helped the man go home and tell his wife then took time to share God’s promises for everlasting life with them.

Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.

More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.


The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.

  1. Good morning. Thank you so very much for offering the series, “The Common Thread.” I have so very much appreciated listening and learning through this series. I have listened to your program on the Bible Broadcasting Network. I make sure I get up at 6:30 am every Saturday to hear your program and I also listen again at your web site. That time I take notes. Thank you. I have been a follower of Jesus Christ all my life but have not been taught about “Israel and Our Heavenly Father’s plans for the land of Israel and the nation of Israel.” For sure, I have been taught the truth of God’s Word but not from your perspective. You have also helped me to understand more of the Truths of God’s Word from the Jewish cultural perspective. I am a single woman, unemployed and greatly appreciate the Scriptural Truths you have been teaching. God is Good.
