What is Israël and who are the Jews? – The state of Israël is NOT Biblical

Israël and Jews from biblical perspective

In the year 33 the people of the nation of Israel lost its claim to be God’s chosen nation when it rejected JWHW’s Son, the Messiah.

The Messiah himself put it this way: “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killer of the prophets and stoner of those sent forth to her . . . Look! Your house is abandoned to you.” (Matthew 23:37, 38)

Jesus’ statement came true when in 70 C.E., Roman legions destroyed Jerusalem along with its temple and priesthood. But what was to become of God’s purpose to have a “special property out of all other peoples. . . a kingdom of priests and a holy nation”?—Exodus 19:5, 6.

The apostle Peter, himself a fleshly Jew, answered that question in a letter written to Christians — both Gentile and Jewish.

He wrote: “You are ‘a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for special possession,’ . . . for you were once not a people, but are now God’s people; you were those who had not been shown mercy, but are now those who have been shown mercy.”—1 Peter 2:7-10.

Christians who were selected by the Holy Spirit thus belong to a spiritual nation, their membership not being determined by birth or geographic location.

The apostle Paul described the matter this way: “Neither is circumcision anything nor is uncircumcision, but a new creation is something. And all those who will walk orderly by this rule of conduct, upon them be peace and mercy, even upon the Israel of God.”—Galatians 6:15, 16.

Whereas the modern nation of Israel offers to confer citizenship upon any natural or converted Jew, citizenship in what the Bible calls “the Israel of God” is given only to those who are: “obedient and sprinkled with the blood of Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 1:1, 2)

Speaking of these members of the Israel of God, or spiritual Jews, Paul wrote: “He is not a Jew who is one on the outside, nor is circumcision that which is on the outside upon the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one on the inside, and his circumcision is that of the heart by spirit, and not by a written code. The praise of that one comes, not from men, but from God.”—Romans 2:28, 29.

That verse helps us understand a controversial comment Paul made. In his letter to the Romans, Paul explained how the unbelieving natural Jews were like branches of a symbolic olive tree that were lopped off so that “wild” Gentile “branches” could be grafted in. (Romans 11:17-21)

Concluding this illustration, he states: “A dulling of sensibilities has happened in part to Israel until the full number of people of the nations has come in, and in this manner all Israel will be saved.” (Romans 11:25, 26) Was Paul foretelling an conversion of the Jews to Christianity? Clearly, no such conversion has taken place.

By the expression “all Israel,” Paul meant all of spiritual Israel — Christians who have been selected by Holy Spirit. He was saying that the failure of the natural Jews to accept the Messiah would not thwart God’s purpose to have a spiritual ‘olive tree’ full of productive branches.

This is in harmony with Jesus’ own illustration of himself as a vine whose non-productive branches will be taken away. Jesus said: “I am the true vine, and my Father is the cultivator. Every branch in me not bearing fruit he takes away, and every one bearing fruit he cleans, that it may bear more fruit.”—John 15:1, 2.

Although the establishment of the modern State of Israel was not foretold in the Bible, the establishment of the nation of spiritual Israel certainly was! If you identify and associate with that spiritual nation today, you will reap eternal blessings.—Genesis 22:15-18; Galatians 3:8, 9.

House of Judah and House of Israël

Most believe the English word Jew/Jewish relates to all of God’s chosen, in fact it is a corruption of a Latin word relating to Judah or House of Judah (two of the twelve tribes including Benjamin).

The people residing in Israel at the time of Christ’s ministry was this ‘House of Judah,’ the House of Israel (ten tribes) never returned and are called the ‘Lost Tribes’.

Also from 70AD to 1900’s, religious Jews returned to Palestine believing God forbade re-establishing Israel in Palestine, so lived (about 2000 years) in peace with their Palestine neighbors (Arab, Christian, and Muslim)… until the Zionist arrived in early 1900 and ended all peace.

Jews are the not so chosen people

The Jews have lost the plot long before Jesus came.

God cursed them for they used to mock and kill prophets, always majority denied their teachings and followed their forefathers and pharisees.

Even Jesus prophesied that the Kingdom of God will be taken away from them and given to a fruitful nation (Matt 21:43). So it is clear that they are against God, thus serving satan.

In the Forbes rich list Jews are leading. Why is that? – Because of their nature to deceive, lie etc., because satan is of this world and Jews want to establish and govern the world forever.

But Jesus told us not to worry about what we will eat tomorrow (parable of birds). And he told Jewish leaders that his kingdom is not of this world unlike the Pharisees who wanted to establish their corrupted version of the Torah.

Conclusion

It is clear that many people have been misled to think that the fleshy Israël and Jews has a special status. The bible points clearly out that Israël today is a spiritual nation and that everyone is part of this nation when obedient and sprinkled with the blood of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ became the ultimate and final sacrificial lamb once and for all time. So there is no need for a stone temple to sacrifice.

All praise to the one and only God Almighty.

Genisis 1 Is A Prophetic Timeline

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. God told Moses to build a tabernacle and once a year the high priest would go into the Holy of Holies and he would sprinkle blood on the mercy seat. He would than say: ”behold the hand behold the nail”

Genesis chapter 1 is a timeline. In this timeline everything is revealed and just as the high priest went into the Holy of Holies once a year, so did God himself enter his creation for one time to shed his blood on the cross for sin.

”Genesis chapter 1 is a timeline”

The tabernacle represents creation itself. The body of Christ and you also as an individual and just as God entered its creation for one time. So does he also enter into you, into the center of your being: the Holy of Holies inside of you. One time to save you, to save you from sin and make you one with himself and in this you become a light into the world shining his light into a darkened world.

I’ve been doing a lot of research on this; the further I go, the more it opens up. It’s not stopping opening up and just in Genesis chapter 1 I see the Exodus, I see the virgin birth, I see the the tomb that Jesus went into and was resurrected. Please keep in mind that this is on multiple levels of understanding and to not lay it all out at one time we could leave you confused and it’s it’s very hard to describe: So let me give you an example:

”In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”: time space and matter – a dwelling place for the body for you individually and the body of Christ. The body as a whole, ”and the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” So let’s break that down and ”the earth”, ”the body” was without form and void.- In other words saying: you’re without form, you’re in distress, you’re empty. ”And darkness was upon the face of the deep”. This means that we’re full of darkness. ”And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters”’. God’s Spirit entering into you, making you a reborn creature. So remember this is on a lot of different levels and a lot of different meanings and understandings.

Let’s go to the next verse: ”And God said let there be light and there was light”. That is Jesus coming into the to the world. He is the light. This means Jesus being born on earth and there are many different levels of understanding to this verse alone. ”And God saw the light, that it was good and God divided the light from the darkness”. That’s Jesus, the light coming into your body and to end  sin from you.

Okay let’s go on: ”And God said let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters and let it divide the waters from the waters”. Then the next verse: ”And God made the firmament”. See the difference: ”Let there be a firmament”. ”and God made the firmament and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament and it was so”. So here we’re seeing an expansion of the of the prophetic timeline, because now what happened is: there’s a separation of the waters and the waters and the firmament is holding them apart: light on top dark on the bottom. What happens in the middle of light and dark?: They clash. There’s a battle between the light in the dark and in these verses. It doesn’t end there, because there’s an individual struggle, there’s a community struggle: there’s all these things playing in these verses.

So what’s the point of this? Let’s go to Genesis chapter 1 verse 25: ”And God made the beasts of the earth after his kind”. And then the next one: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth”. The way I see it: He gives the power to the beast to have dominion over the world and he gives power to his image man to have power over everything. There’s a struggle here, so I know that this is a lot of information. I’m seeing more and more, so I’m just trying to give you an idea of what I’m seeing.

So at the end of chapter one: notice that’s the end, but then on the next day this seventh day god ends his work and calls it the Sabbath day: the day of rest. I find it very interesting that when chapter one ends it goes into rest. At the end of the story comes rest. Do we have rest here now? Yes, because we rest in the finished work of Jesus! He’s the Sabbath.

”Yes, because we rest in the finished work of Jesus! He’s the Sabbath.”

I hope that this has been something to to help. I’m still studying, I’m still praying, I’m still seeking how this all is gonna tie together to say it in a simple easy-to-understand way. I wanted give you a little information. I just wanted to open this up to you, so you could think about it, pray about it. It’s just amazing to me, but the main point was to show that Genesis chapter one is a timeline and everything is hidden in this in the first chapter of Genesis. God bless each and every one of you, my brothers and sisters.

What will you do with the time you have left?

Your yesterday does not have to define your today.

You were put on this Earth for a reason, to live, to extend the kingdom of god and to glorify him.

He has covered you in His is blood, you’re a child of the living god.

 

Now what are you going to do you about your tomorrow?

He didn’t put you on this earth to live in defeat!

You’ve already been promised the victory!

The mountain is not too high the valley is not too low.

He will breathe the life into your soul.

He will lift you up in time of need.

He will carry you when you don’t have any strength left to stand.

 

The power of God is made manifest in the weakness of human flesh.

When we are weak, he is strong.

The grace have god is sufficient for you.

You are an overcomer, you are more than a conqueror.

My friends you have been created for reason.

You’re living in the greatest time in all of human history;

The climax of God’s story for the church and for the human race.

 

Jesus is coming back.

We are in the last and final hours before judgments sweeps across face of the land:

What are you going to do with the minutes that you have left in this life?

Do you hear His voice?

Are you responding to the commandments he has taught you?

Are you being obedient to the voice of the living God?

 

This is a challenge:

I’m pleading you,

I’m charging you,

I’m urging you!

– To walk in the purpose whereby you were created.

 

When he formed you in your mothers womb,

He created you with gifts and with talents,

to give you a direction, purpose, hope and a future.

Will you respond to His voice today?

Will you go out and extend the kingdom of god?

We do not have any time left to waste.

 

 What are you doing with your life?

Are you walking in your purpose?

Rise up, army of God!

 

…now is the time.

The Parable of the Man in the Hole

A post from my old blog:

A modern parable that i wanted to share with you. This insightful video illustration examines the life of a man searching through the false promises of other religions and finding his salvation in Christ. At the end a part of a song of destiny lab about this story is added.

Have you ever found yourself stuck in a situation that you couldn’t get out of?  And not only that, but you didn’t know how to get out of.  When you need help, where do you turn?  How do you get out?  The culture believes that there are many paths in life we can take, but this video illustration demonstrates that none of them will ultimately help you out of your situation.

This reminds me of the famous story about CS Lewis where he proclaimed the most distinguishing fact of Christianity.  Here is a direct quote from Philip Yancey’s, What’s So Amazing About Grace? (Grand Rapids, Michigan: Zondervan Publishing House, 1997), p 45.

During a British conference on comparative religions, experts from around the world debated what, if any, belief was unique to the Christian faith. They began eliminating possibilities. Incarnation? Other religions had different versions of gods’ appearing in human form. Resurrection? Again, other religions had accounts of return from death. The debate went on for some time until CS Lewis wandered into the room. “What’s the rumpus about?” he asked, and heard in reply that his colleagues were discussing Christianity’s unique contribution among world religions. Lewis responded, “Oh, that’s easy. It’s grace.”

Grace makes Christianity unique from all other religions because it marks the stark difference in believing in a God that will come down into a hole and pull you out of your mess, verses a god that requires you to earn its approval.  When we search for God, the Bible promises that we will find Him.  The difference between Christianity and other religions can be explained by the words “Do” and “Done.”

Do – All other world religions have to do with good works or good deeds.  Reincarnation and Karma are major themes in world religions and they always point back to what you do with your life.

Done – Christianity points to what Jesus Christ has already done on the cross at Calvary.  His sacrifice on the cross is what brings a Christian salvation.  Jesus Christ is the only way to God, who comes down to meet us in our own messy lives, to build relationship with us and to save us from this life.  We are free because of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  It’s not our own righteousness that leads to salvation, but the free gift of grace.
