Jer 50:6 My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.
The Lord’s people have all been lost sheep before they came into the truth and know Jesus Christ and His Father. We are all first led astray into false doctrines by the false shepherds’s that occupy every church and every pulpit in orthodox Christianity.
Jesus Christ was only sent to minister to the Lost House of Israel. This is who is being saved and the target of the ministry of Jesus Christ for salvation. While Christ will in due time save all men ever born; for now and in each age (AION in Greek) since His resurrection, He is only appearing to and working with the few chosen who are the true Israel of God.
Mat 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
The lost house of Israel is nothing more than symbolic language for God’s very Elect, the few chosen who are the apple of God’s eyes and the ones He brings judgment to in this life (AION/age). The Lord sent His chosen disciples and commands them to go forth in the same way He was sent by His Father. Both only go to the Lost House of Israel.
Mat 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
Mat 10:6 But go rather (only) to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
The sheep of the Lord are only those that hear His word. If you do not hear His words in spirit and in truth one is not a sheep of the Lord.
Joh 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
The Lord of course is the one who must CAUSE His sheep to hear His words in those appointed times.
Pro 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
Jer 18:2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words
And just to be sure, the real sheep of the Lord (the Lost House of Israel) also know Him and follow Him, which is really saying they obey Him and His commandments. That is exactly what hearing His words does, that is what it causes over time, and that is how the lost sheep our indeed found.
Eze 36:27And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. (and here is how He does that)
Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
Jesus Christ IS THE LORD! Yet it is amazing how the entire world thinks the flesh Jews are the Lord’s people when they don’t even believe He is, was and will be their Messiah. Anyone who hears the voice of God, who speaks only thru Christ is not going to be practicing Judaism. Jews in the flesh don’t hear His voice nor do they even believe in Him or claim His name. They deny Jesus Christ and that is all by the design of the Lord and no fault of their own. In fact they were made to kill Jesus Christ exactly as God planned it.
Act 4:26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.
Act 4:27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
Act 4:28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.
But make no mistake, the references in Scripture to the lost house or lost sheep of Israel has nothing to do with the flesh jews. As we shall see, they were just the shadow of the real thing that would come much later.
Of course this will all be nonsense to those without ears to hear the truth of God’s word who have been ensnared by the philosophy of a carnal world and the traditions of men. This post will explore in great detail the tradition of men and the orthodox apostate churches that are the Christianity those yet carnal embrace and know. Such way of thinking is not after Christ, it is vanity but they just don’t know it at this time.
Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
But when one’s ears are opened and we are also given spiritual sight, then the truths of God’s word, the pure doctrines of Christ will begin to work their work in us and the lies will be removed little by little. This post was inspired by an email I got from someone well steeped into the traditions of the orthodox church who has not yet been given to know who is the Israel of God and could not hear the truth I shared. I took time to provide an honest and true answer and want to share that answer here for others who may be led to this website to be fed the true doctrines (the bread of life) of Jesus Christ. When our time of spiritual fasting has come to an end, it is time to eat and the disciples of Christ (The Body of Christ) will be the ones to speak the words that feed the flock of God.
Joh 21:15 So when they had broken their fast, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of John, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
Replacement Theology Is The Truth
The Apostle Peter was a replacement theologian. Writing to the ELECT in his letter, he tells us who those chosen few truly are and that we are the people of God.
1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
1Pe 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
The flesh Jews are not the people of God and never were. They like the entire OT were mere types and shadows of the true things of God that would not be revealed until Christ came many hundreds of years later. A type and a shadow is not the real thing, they just show us how the real things works in the spirit. It is essential to come to know that the entire bible is a parable, written in types, shadows and symbols. The Lord must give us the keys to unlock this which is the mind of Christ, the ability to hear His words and see spiritual truths. We are told all physical things are just shadows of deeper spiritual truths and so it is with the story of the flesh Jews.
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, (if one has the mind of Christ and ears to hear) even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Carnal men blinded by traditions of men and false Babylonian doctrines, have labelled this truth about the true Jews as “replacement theology”. It sounds so negative and invented to the carnal mind, but if we just stick with the Scriptures and not the traditions of men; it is easy to prove that the flesh Jews are not those to whom the precious promises of God were given. Those promises Peter and Paul mention were given not to the flesh Jews (which they were of a physical lineage) but only to the Elect of God who were scattered all over this world and came from many nations, tribes and tongues. And note like all things, this blessing and the promises are GIVEN to us so no free will is involved.
2Pe 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
That is all reserved for His Elect who are the spiritual Jews and have been chosen by the Lord and dragged out of this world and into the marvelous light of the Body of Christ. Before we cover the multiple witnesses to this truth let’s be reminded again that many are called and only a few are chosen to be given the truth and the ears to hear and eyes to see.
Few Hear, See and have the gift of Faith
Contrary to what we are taught in the Babylonian churches of men, the Lord Himself is in the business of blinding the entire world and making the entire world deaf to hear His word and blind to see the truth. He the Lord does all those things and He does them on purpose.
Exo 4:11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
Jesus said the same when speaking with His disciples and this truth has never changed, His words is, was and will be and shall never pass away.
Mat 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
Mat 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
Mat 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
Those blinded by false doctrines cannot see the truth, they cannot believe even if they tried. This was true back 2000 years ago with the flesh Jews representing the organized church of that age and it is still true in the organized churches in the modern world be it Judaism, Islam and yes even all of orthodox Christianity (Baptists, Methodists, 7th Day Adventist, Hebrew Roots Christians, Lutheran, Roman Catholics, Non Denominational, ALL OF THEM). The professing church is the world in Scripture and that is exactly who the Lord has blinded. They like the flesh Jews before them cannot believe the truth spoken by the true church (God’s Elect) that Jesus Christ Himself is building.
Joh 12:39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
Joh 12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
It is those that say they are of God but are not who the Lord has blinded, to this very day. The professing church is in total apostasy, and only the few Elect have obtained the gift. So says the word despite what carnal minds want to argue otherwise!
Rom 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded
Rom 11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
As the words say above, the Lord gave them “the flesh Israel” (representing the organized religion of that day and the ages to follow) a spirit of slumber so they would not see and not hear. And the Lord changes not. Organized religions today, are totally blind, in thick darkness to the truth and preach another jesus based upon thousands of false doctrines. Faith, the real kind is indeed the gift the Scriptures say it is. It has to be given and it comes with ears to hear.
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
In fact, this faith is not even ours, it is the faith OF Christ if one digs for the truth.
Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
With this reminder that few will be able to receive the truth, let’s now look at multiple witnesses that will tell us who is the true Israel of God and put the flesh Jews and the modern day nation of Israel into the proper perspective.
MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT
Coming to see that all the Scriptures speak of spiritual truths and the references to the physical are merely types and shadows quickly leads to spiritual growth and maturity into the deeper things of God.
Joh 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Being anything in the flesh, a Jew or otherwise profits itself nothing. The Bible means what it means not what it says because the words are SPIRIT first and foremost and their meaning is spiritual. Those clinging to an outward and literal application have no clue as to what is actually being said. They have not been given the gift to understand.
1Co 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
There it is. We are taught by comparing spiritual things to spiritual things. This also very much applies to determining who are God’s people, the true Israel. Carnal minds always try to compare physical things to spiritual things or vice versa but that just leads to deception and greater spiritual blindness. One of the great mysteries that the orthodox churches are totally blinded to is understanding basic symbols in Scripture and seeing that all the old testament was merely a type and a shadow of greater spiritual truths.
1Co 10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they (the flesh jews) also lusted.
The OT is all types and shadows of spiritual realities and experiences that would play out many years in the future after Christ gave His Spirit and the generations of His Elect ever since.
To Whom Was the Old Testament Written?
If one can receive it, this truth is going to blow you away. The entire bible and stories of the flesh nation of Israel reveal deep hidden truths, the mysteries of the kingdom of God to God’s very Elect. That is exactly why they were written down and preserved for us.
1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, (GODS ELECT ONLY) upon whom the ends of the world (carnal age) are come.
Note it is not some, it is ALL THESE THINGS. All the stories, all the events, all the words were caused to happen for God’s true Israel, who would not appear until much later. Here is a revealing Scriptures that tells us this also. The prophets were not ministering to the flesh jews, they were ministering to God’s very Elect who would not even come for hundreds and thousands of years later. Don’t take my word on it, let’s see what the Apostle Peter had to say which adds to the sum of God’s word in this topic.
1Pe 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Pe 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
1Pe 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
The Lie of Flesh Israel
Until the lie of who Israel is removed from one’s spiritual eyes, and one is given repentance from the many false doctrines they learn in the orthodox churches; they will have no chance to begin to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God. This plank, the lie of flesh Israel must be removed in the same way the logs of eternal hellfire and man having any free will must be similarly removed if the Lord would have mercy upon you. Anyone thinking outwardly in the flesh that believes the physical Jews and modern nation of Israel has anything to do with the Israel of God are sorely mistaken and under very strong delusion.
The Bible is written for and to God’s Elect, it is not written for the world and those who cannot hear His word and by predestination have not ears to hear or eyes to see. The flesh Jews did not hear His word back then and they do not hear it today either, they are not of Christ. But if you are given to see that the flesh Jews represent a symbol, they symbolize Babylon, apostate Christianity that claims to know the Lord but do not. We all are in this condition until and unless the Lord gives us the gift and opens our ears to hear His word.
Joh 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Joh 8:45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
Pro 20:12 The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.
The true people of God are those the Lord chooses and it is these same few to whom He gives faith and ears to hear and eyes to see spiritual truths. The Lord continues to this very day to use the outward deception of the flesh Jews to keep the multitudes that call themselves by His name blinded to the truth. Christ words are always only for those who have an ear to hear.
Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
Rev 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
Mat 13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Psa 10:17 LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
The Lord has prepared very few hearts and caused extremely few to hear His words in spirit. It is everybody else, i.e. THE WHOLE WORLD who is deceived and cannot hear His word and that certainly includes on the truth about the Israel of God.
Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Not all Israel Is Israel
In Romans 9 we have Paul telling us of this mystery of the kingdom – Not all Israel is Israel!
Rom 9:6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
So right here we have a glimpse into the Lord’s MO of hiding His truths from the world and deceiving them. This lie about the Israel of God has taken on much greater importance in the last 70 years with the formation of the modern nation of Israel in 1948 and the repopulation of fleshly Jews to this small country in the middle east. What an incredible miracle no doubt, but the Lord is in the business of creating lying signs and wonders to deceive the multitudes and this is certainly one of those.
2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
The re-emergence of a flesh Israel is indeed a miraculous work of God but as we just see it is also a lying sign and wonder. It is a deception that is brought about to keep the entire world in spiritual darkness, thinking outwardly and away from the kingdom of God that is within.
Luk 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
Luk 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
The flesh Jews of all time and that physical nation that exists today; are not the people of God. Here is a continuation of Romans 9 and a black and white truth about who are God’s true people.
Rom 9:7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
Rom 9:8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
There you have an incredible witness against anyone claiming the flesh Jews are the people of God. The children of the flesh ARE NOT the children of God. It says right here that being a physical descendant of Abraham (the seed of Abraham) does not make one a child of God. Only those of faith and we shall see this is the faith of Christ, the one seed, represented by Isaac in spirit are the true children of God. They would not come until Pentecost because it was not possible to be converted and have Christ formed in oneself until that time.
A time is appointed for all of us, all men of all time, that the mother of Christ (Sara, Rebecca, Rachael, etc. in type and shadow) will have a child, the new man. That is what these spiritual words in the completion of Romans 9 are speaking about. The old man will bow down to the new man within us all in due time. The story of Esau and Jacob foretell of this and this is mentioned here by Paul in Romans 9 and tells of this deep spiritual truth. Esau the first man of the flesh will indeed serve Jacob the new man of the Spirit. But how all this works is based upon God’s Election, it has nothing to do with the delusion of man having free will.
Rom 9:9 For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son.
Rom 9:10 And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac;
Rom 9:11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)
Rom 9:12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.
Flesh Jews Contrasted With Spiritual Jews
Truth is established by two or three witnesses but on the topic of who is a real Jew and by extension who are the true people of God we have very many witnesses. Let’s deal with a direct in your face truth about this right now. Earlier in Romans,Paul wrote some powerful words that close out chapter 2 and begin the man made chapter break of chapter 3.
Rom 2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
Rom 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
We already saw Christ’s words about the flesh profit itself NOTHING. We already saw Paul’s words that the children of the flesh Jews ARE NOT the people of God. Here we see that being a Jew outwardly, i.e. IN THE FLESH means nothing and those are not the true Jews.
When Paul continues beyond the man inserted chapter break, he is speaking of the real Jews, the spiritual ones the very Israel of God.
Rom 3:1 What advantage then hath the [spiritual] Jew? or what profit is there of [spiritual] circumcision?
Rom 3:2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them [that is the spiritual Jew] were committed the oracles [the Word] of God.
The fact is it all comes back to Christ. You either have Christ or you don’t and if you don’t you are NONE OF HIS and not a partaker of the Lord’s promises to Israel.
Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Abraham Had Two Sons, One Flesh, One of Promise
The fact is it is the SPIRITUAL descendants of Abraham that are Christ’s seed, not the physical ones. This is quite clear from Galatians.
Gal 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
Gal 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. (IE GIVEN BY FAITH, the GIFT)
Gal 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
Gal 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
Gal 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. (God’s Elect)
Gal 4:27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
Gal 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, (NOT THE FLESH JEWS) are the children of promise.
The flesh jews are the one by the bondmaid, they walk after the flesh. They are in bondage today while God’s Elect, the spiritual descendants IN CHRIST are free. Only those GIVEN the gift are children of the promise that were given to Abraham thru his son Isaac as an example for us today.
How can be the physical jews, WHO DENY CHRIST be the Israel of God? They never were and here is proof.
Gal 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed (not seeds, not including the flesh child) were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
The flesh matters not anymore as Paul said here. All that matters is one in Christ or not?
Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, (THE FLESH JEWS ARE NOT) then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
So here it is black and white about who is of the seed of Christ and heirs to the promises of God. Being a fleshly descendant of Abraham is expressly EXCLUDED. The physical nation of Israel and the so called flesh Jews are NOT in Christ and therefore cannot possibly be God’s people and as this says, they are not heirs according to the promise. The promise was not made to Abraham’s son born after the flesh (Ishmael) but was only made to the son and descendants born after the spirit (Isaac). The flesh jews are of Ishmael not of Isaac.
Who is the Real Circumcision, of the SPIRIT?
God’s Elect are the true circumcision. Nobody should be boasting when they make such a claim but then again to deny who we are in Christ is to deny Christ.
Psa 107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
The flesh Jews do not even know Christ and were just the examples of God’s true people who would come much later. All men are in actuality GENTILES in the flesh. We all start there being carnal minded and of our father the devil. God’s Elect are called out of the world like all orthodox Christians (many are called), yet only a few are chosen to then be dragged to the real Christ and come out of the Babylonian churches built by the works od the flesh. The flesh Jews indeed will call God’s Elect and anyone who keeps not the law of Moses the uncircumcision. Yet the flesh Jews are in utter darkness to this day as circumcision in the flesh means nothing and unless the Lord builds the house, men will continue to toil in vain. The Lord does not need human hands to do anything for Him and that includes saving His Elect now (His true church) and eventually all men.
Eph 2:11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
Php 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
Gal 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
Gal 6:16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
Only those made new by the Lord’s fiery work of bringing judgment against our old man will be the true circumcision who are called right here The Israel of God.
Physical circumcision avails itself nothing.All of that was merely a type and a shadow of the true circumcision that the Lord performs in us to bring forth the new man and brings His saints out of Babylon and away from the world.
1Co 7:19 (Physical) Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.
Gal_5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
It is only a ritual, now an established tradition of men and followed by many. But it means nothing and as I hope you are beginning to see, the act of physical circumcision was only a type and a shadow of the true circumcision that the Lord Himself does.
Col_2:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
Here is an old testament witness to the Lord doing it all. It is by His finger, His work in us — we are mere clay in His hands. No free will involved.
Eze 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
Eze 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
Where “Christ” is Sent to Minister
The natural Jews serve only as a shadow of the real spiritual Jews, who is the true “Israel of God”. All the promises of God made to the flesh Jews were spiritual types and shadows of greater spiritual truths that would come in the future. The covenant and promises that referred to physical things really were about spiritual things that would become evident in the years ahead as God’s Elect, the true Israel of God would appear in the generations since Pentecost. The true spiritual Jews have indeed obtained advantage in “much every way” and profits through the new creation in Christ chiefly because that unto us have been committed the oracles of God. We are the ministers of the Lord, He works thru Christ His body.
Heb 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
Jer 5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.
I sure hope some wood is being burned (the carnal reasonings within the natural man) by some of you reading this post.
The flesh jews will be saved in the lake of fire like the rest of mankind. Ezekiel 16 and many other passages tell us of the Lord’s timetable and how that will come about. The salvation of all is the most basic truth, the sincere MILK of the word that one must begin to drink to even begin to grow in true knowledge. ow that simply from scores of Scriptures that convey this truth which directly contradicts the most basis lie of Satan’s churches that preach of eternal hellfire
Luk 3:6 And all flesh (even the flesh jews who reject Christ, even Muslims, etc) shall see the salvation of God.
Even Hosea tells us of this mystery and gathering together of all men into ONE which will be the outcome of the lake of fire that will purify all. Those that are not God’s people now (the flesh Jews, the Babylonian Christians, the muslims, ALL MEN, the sand of the sea in type….) will become God’s people in due time.
Hos 1:10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.
The carnal mind is at enmity with the true word of God. Once we receive this implanted word we will increasingly be pulled out and separated. Our past life will be utterly destroyed, all things indeed are made new as the old man dies and Christ in us is brought forward. We indeed must lose our old way of life to find Christ. There is no mixing of the two.
Mat 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
The Lost House Of Israel once “found” by the Lord will not be yoked with those without the camp of the true Israel. They will separate with the unbelievers and that specifically includes those that know the other jesus in the flesh and are still bound up captive in Babylon, the apostate churches of orthodox Christianity. We cannot be fellowshipping with them. We cannot mix the cup of the Lord with doctrines of demons.
2Co 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2Co 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
2Co 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2Co 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
Paul goes on to remind us that the promises of Israel were given to God’s Elect, this is the high calling and we are commanded to cleanse ourselves and remove ourselves from all things that defile. That certainly includes worldly things but unless we are given to take heed the importance of pure doctrines and come to see that love means obeying God’s commandments, even those that tell us to separate from unbelievers, we won’t be able to mature.
2Co 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, (The Elect Corinthians) let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, (outward sins and FALSE DOCTRINES) perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Christ sends His Christ in exactly the same way God sent Him. This is indeed the higher calling that God’s Elect are being prepared for in this age.
Joh 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as myFather hath sent me, even so send I you.
Those that are part of Christ are instructed to only go to the lost house of Israel also. We saw it earlier in the post but is worthy of a reminder. We are not to enter into the house of the Gentiles we are to wait upon the Lord to bring us sheep to feed, otherwise we are disobeying the Lord.
Mat 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
These statements have nothing to do with the flesh or the lineage of flesh Jews. The lost house of Israel is nothing less than God’s Elect who have yet to hear the word of truth spoken to their God given ears to hears and eyes to see. But as able ministers of the WORD, a day will come when some, VERY FEW, will hear. I have experienced this and the Lord has been faithful to bring a few lambs to be fed. Yet we have many admonishments about casting our pearls before swine and only sharing, breaking bread with those the Lord has prepared to hear. That is the Lost House of Israel. Here are some witnesses to this truth.
Mat 10:12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.
Mat 10:13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
Mat 10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
And this one from the Apostle John.
2Jn 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
2Jn 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your (spiritual) house, neither bid him God speed:
2Jn 1:11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
As God’s Elect we follow the example of the Lord in not laying hands suddenly on any man lest we cast pearls and they turn and rend us.
Mat 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, (Unbelievers without ears to hear) neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
As Paul admonishes us we are not to speak of spiritual matters (eat at the Lord’s table) with those that fornicate with the world that try to teach carnal doctrines and the lies of Babylon. We are indeed to separate from those that have not the true faith of God.
1Co 5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, (come out of Babylon) if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. (speak on spiritual matters)
The reality is that the lost house of Israel is not lost to the Lord. He knows who are His and they will be found right on schedule as it has all been ordained from the beginning.
2Ti 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his.
Psa 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
No Tribes of Israel are Lost
Joh 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
the Lord loses none of His sheep. The spiritual tribes of Israel are not lost. All the fragments that make up this one bread, this one body are gathered.
Joh 6:12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
It is beyond this post to refute the false teaching of carnal minds that want to claim the missing flesh tribes of ancient Israel omitted in some Scriptural references are the lost house of Israel. They are not. James and the other apostles were writing letters and speaking to all 12 spiritual tribes.
Act_26:7 Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope’s sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews.
Jas_1:1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
The true Israel of God, the Elect are fulfilling this prophecy today, eating and drinking at the Lord’s table and judging the 12 tribes, NONE IS LOST.
Luk_22:30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
The enumeration of the 12 tribes in Revelation 7 speak to the symbolic 12 SPIRITUAL tribes. The fact the flesh profits itself nothing has never changed. For more on this topic Mike has a great article on the 144,000 that can be accessed here.
