The Bible Belt and the Trump presidency are two different worlds.
But on this day in February, it is worth asking whether the Belt is a separate political universe, or a part of the Bible belt.
In the Bible, God’s Belt was a kingdom with a king, who was the one who sent his son and son-in-law, as well as their wives and concubines, to rule over Israel.
In a parable of the sower, a shepherd says to his flock, “Go, take up the threshing floor, and lay the crops.”
When the flock goes and lays the crops, the shepherd says, “This is mine, and I am the shepherd.”
(Job 1:14)In the Book of Acts, Jesus is described as having a “great white throne” (Luke 1:17), and it is said that his wife, the sister of the King of Judea, gave birth to Jesus, who is the Messiah.
It is not difficult to see why the Bible would be interested in the kingdom of Israel, even though the kingdom itself was ruled by a different King.
But why the difference between the Bible-belt and the Belt-of-Israel?
Is it just a matter of theology?
Yes, in the Bible’s Book of Job, a son-and-sister of God is referred to as a “beast” (Job 31:1), and this was in reference to a man who is considered the greatest of all creatures.
But, then again, it could also refer to the very same creature.
In the Book Of Job, there are a number of different ways in which God’s Kingdom could be compared to that of the Israelite King.
For example, Job describes a shepherd as a beast.
In this story, God is depicted as having three parts: a head, a body, and a soul.
The head is depicted with a throne, and the body is depicted in an earthly location with animals and human beings.
The soul of God resides in the soul of the body.
But what of Job’s “beasts”?
The Bible describes them as having two heads, two bodies, and two souls.
The body of the beast is represented by a man with a bow and arrow in his hand.
In fact, in Job, the “beats” are depicted as possessing both bodies and souls.
The Bible’s “Beasts” are a reference to Job’s description of God’s kingdom.
And the Bible is not alone in this.
Many ancient religions used the term “beget,” and it refers to a human child who is born from a female.
In addition, the Bible has numerous references to the creation of a creature by a person.
So what about the Belt of Israel?
The Bible does not give a precise definition of the Belt.
It does not even describe the Belt in a detailed way.
Instead, it describes the kingdom as being “of many nations, and in divers manners.”
It is in this realm that God’s people are found, in order to “save” the world from an evil that the Bible describes as “a spirit of jealousy and anger” (Isaiah 14:5).
In order to save the world, God will destroy the spirit of “unrighteousness and envy.”
This spirit of envy is depicted “in many nations” and “in divers manners” in Isaiah 14:10-11.
In this passage, God declares that the Kingdom of Israel will be divided into two kingdoms, one for the Jews and one for their Gentiles.
In Israel, the Jews will rule over the land and be the kings of their neighbors.
In Gentiles, they will rule as the kings.
The Bible is careful to make this distinction.
In Isaiah 14, God says that “you will not find among you any one who has not received your law and has not obeyed its commands, or who does not love his neighbor as himself” (verse 7).
In other words, there will be a difference between Israel and Gentiles in the way God’s law and Israel’s government are administered.
As we can see, the biblical descriptions of the Kingdom are very specific and precise.
But in this context, the differences between the Biblical Belt and Israel are quite apparent.
The Belt is the kingdom God created for His people.
The Israelites are the descendants of those who were born of Israel and were “born free and equal” (Hebrews 8:5) in the land of Israel.
The only difference is that the Israelites have an earthly King who is not subject to God’s laws.
The Christian Bible, like the Bible of the Old Testament, is not concerned with the details of the Biblical kingdom.
It makes no mention of the kingdom’s laws or its borders.
In most of the New Testament, the focus is on the Gospel message.
The Gospel is the story of Jesus,
