The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Psalm 46: 7; 11
"It is common sense that the true God would only reveal Himself to sincere and earnest seekers who want to know Him in truth in order to obey Him. The first prerequisite to knowing God is the willingness—indeed, the passion—to know Him as He really is, not as one imagines or would like Him to be. It is no less idolatry to create an imaginary god in one’s mind than to make one out of clay, wood, or stone.
So, who is the true God who proves Himself by unfailingly foretelling the future in the Bible? The Bible identifies Him as “the God of Israel” 203 times, “the God of Jacob” 28 times, “the God of Abraham” 17 times, and “the God of Isaac” 13 times.
[Note: We can add God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob at least 9 times in the Book of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants. He is called God, The Holy One of Israel nearly 300 times in modern scripture.]
[Note: Not a specific ethnic group, but He is also God of the whole earth 3 Nephi 11:14]
These designations are foundational to everything the Bible teaches, including the very character of God. To profess to believe in God and at the same time to hold a prejudice...against Israel, turns these clear biblical identifications into meaningless titles. If you are seeking a God who can be trusted, be sure you know the God who never slumbers nor sleeps— He is the Lord God of Israel."
