Bearing the Marks of Christ

The most basic promise and the whole premise of our relationship with God pertain to our being married to Him.  That is the essence of what being ONE with God is all about!  This letter is confronting the falling away from the faith that is prophesied to occur in the church in every generation.  Please be sure to read the prior two articles as they give greater context to what is addressed is in this letter to the church.

The Very High Calling of Marriage

Defending the Gospel on Marriage

These are not minor issues, they strike to the very heart of faith and whether one is walking according to the true faith or not.

To those given the precious gift of faith in Jesus Christ,

The gospel we now stand upon has been rejected by the elders and seemingly by the majority of the professing flock.  We do not engage and contend with those the Lord has blinded as indeed our mission is only to the lost house of Israel.  But to those precious few given the spirit of God, you need to be reminded of a primary sign of our salvation in the day of the Lord.  We thank the Lord for this trial and the sifting of His flock and our living out the Scriptures.

Php 1:27  Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; 

Php 1:28  And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God. 

Php 1:29  For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake; 

The fact we are being persecuted for defending the gospel is a sign of our salvation.  We now suffer greatly for standing for the Lord’s righteousness.  The day of the Lord is nigh at hand.  We are told and warned of exactly what has unfolded if one has been given eyes to see.

1Ti 4:1  But the Spirit saith expressly, that in later times some shall fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons, 

1Ti 4:2  through the hypocrisy of men that speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron; 

1Ti 4:3  forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by them that believe and know the truth. 

1Ti 4:4  For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it be received with thanksgiving: 

1Ti 4:5  for it is sanctified through the word of God and prayer. 

Those who have departed the faith are now forbidding you to marry Christ in faith.  That is what keeping you under the law, the circumcision and carnal reasonings of the Jews does.  We are not free to marry in the gospel until we die to that law.

Rom 7:1  Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? 
Rom 7:2  For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. 

They also now command that you abstain from the meats of the gospel.  Woe unto them who teach the opposite of the truth and what our Lord commands.  The very body of Christ, His doctrine and your sacrificed life is what we must be nourished on to grow in Christ.

Joh 6:53  Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

Unless one is given to eat and take to heart those commandments now being rejected, they will in no wise inherit the kingdom of God.  The time for milk is over.

Heb 5:12  For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 

Heb 5:13  For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 

Heb 5:14  But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. 

A strong rebuke is necessary and commanded to win back brothers who have fallen away and are now preaching to you another gospel and commandments of men.

Tit 1:13  This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; 

Tit 1:14  Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. 

Tit 1:15  Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. 

Tit 1:16  They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. 

Ministers of the gospel preach faith in God and are helpers of each other’s joy teaching them to walk by faith in the Lord’s commands and promises.

Rom 1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 

Rom 1:17  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. 

We preach the gospel, Jesus Christ and Him crucified.  Our faith cannot stand upon these many carnal reasonings under the law [Circumcision and without the law Uncircumcision].  We stand only in the power of God who can and will sanctify the unbelieving spouse in your house today and all mankind in due time.

1Co 2:4  And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 

1Co 2:5  That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 

Paul and we now warn everyone not to be enticed away by man’s wisdom and reasoning.  The faith these men now teach is a weak faith with no power unto salvation.  It is really unbelief in the promises of God.  The gospel is now openly being mocked and many are making merchandise of it. They now tell you obeying the commands of God is likened to being “put on a leash”.  They implicitly are saying His commands are too grievous for us to endure.  The wisdom of the wise is perished.

Isa 29:13  Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: 

Isa 29:14  Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. 

There are many warnings in the last days of deceivers, especially those of the false circumcision [i.e. those still bound by the law of Moses and their carnal reasoning, not walking in faith] who would entice us away from the gospel with clever words.

Tit 1:10  For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision

Tit 1:11  Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

The mystery of God is the marriage of God to His people through Christ thus becoming One.  This occurs when we walk by faith with the full assurance of His promises and are not enticed away by deceivers.

Col 2:1  For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; 

Col 2:2  That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; 

Col 2:3  In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 

Col 2:4  And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. 

Carnally minded men now contradict the promises of the Lord that says what God births within us overcomes the world and this applies within and without.  Many read the Scriptures but so few actually believe in the power of God to do what He has promised.

1Jn 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 

Abraham is our example and the father of faith in believing that God could do what is impossible with man’s reasonings.  This is the faith that imputes the righteousness of Christ upon one who believes and saves them from their sins.  To be saved we cannot stagger on the promises.

Rom 4:20  He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; 

Rom 4:21  And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. 

Rom 4:22  And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. 

Do not be deceived brethren but believe in the Lord and His promises.  To be saved one stands solely on the promises of God and abides in His commandments.  Those promises include that the believing spouse sanctifies the unbelieving spouse.

1Co 7:14  For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

But this promise is so much bigger than just in your home.  The entire marriage principle comes back to the salvation of all men and how the Lord is making all men “all in all” with the Father.

Eph 5:31  For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 

Eph 5:32  This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church [which in due time extends to all mankind]

If Christ is born in you, then we give up our lives and rests from our own works and now wait upon the Lord to make His enemies [within and without including an unbelieving spouse] a footstool.  That is faith in action, the true work of God, resting from our own works and trusting God.

Heb 10:12  But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 

Heb 10:13  From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. 

What you are now hearing instead are smooth and crafty words that sound godly and righteous but are another gospel and a falling away from the faith of Christ.

Isa 30:9  That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: 

Isa 30:10  Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: 

If one does not believe the gospel and its promises as it applies in our physical marriages, which are a shadow of the true marriage with God; then we do not believe in the Lord and have not the gift of faith.  All men shall be saved and made one with God and Christ being married in the Spirit.

Joh 10:15  As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 

Joh 10:16  And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. 

Gen 22:18  And in thy seed [Faith of Christ] shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice. 

A little leaven and denial of Christ in our physical marriages extends and leavens the entire loaf in negating the gospel and promises of the Lord.  Those the Lord uses to bring salvation stand only on faith and that is how the greater works are being done beginning at one’s own house and in their physical marriages in this age.

Joh 14:12  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 

Joh 14:13  And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 

Joh 14:14  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 

The true Body of Christ is the believing spouse that is going to sanctify the entire world in the appointed times.  Those of the false circumcision are telling you not to trust the Lord nor believe His promises on how believers sanctify unbelievers. They are now openly denying Christ and denying the gospel for which we have been emboldened to contend for the faith in the face of great adversity.  We are on trial in this church right now for nothing other than our expressions of the true gospel and the hope and promises of that gospel that the Lord has put into our hearts.  We are in good company and we rejoice in this trial.

Act 26:6  And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made by God to our fathers. 

Act 26:7  To this promise our twelve tribes, earnestly serving God night and day, hope to attain. For this hope’s sake, King Agrippa, I am accused by the Jews. 

Those being circumcised by their own works and reasonings are still bound by the law of sin and death.  They now compel us to be circumcised like them and not to stand on faith.  We are warned to beware.

Php 3:2  Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. 

Php 3:3  For we are the [true] circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. 

Dogs are unbelievers still under the law returning again and again to their own vomit for spiritual food.  They stand opposed to those given faith who do the commandments [don’t divorce in faith].

Rev 22:14  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 

Rev 22:15  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 

Rev 22:16  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 

What men want to teach you about marriage does not hold up to the Lord’s high standards that command us to do not divorce in faith. This is another gospel built upon the law of carnal reasoning that appeals to all flesh.

2Ti 4:2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 

2Ti 4:3  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 

2Ti 4:4  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 

If one does not believe a believing spouse will sanctify an unbelieving spouse, one is actually denying the most basic promise of God and the Gospel.  This is a massive fall from grace which is why Paul wrote so passionately and boldly to the Galatians to warn and admonish the church.  This sifting is the Book of Galatians being lived by those being saved in this age.

Gal 1:8  But even if we [the Apostles because some are proven false in the end], or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 

When one sees the false circumcision what Paul calls the circumcision as being those still bound by the law of carnal reasonings, then it becomes clear how the true ones suffer persecution for preaching and living the cross of Christ as the only way to salvation.

Mat 5:11  Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

That is the rule of God the true Israel of God is following.

Gal 6:12  As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised [being bound the law of Moses and their carnal reasoning]; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. 

Gal 6:13  For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh. 

Gal 6:14  But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. 

Gal 6:15  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision [carnal law of Moses] availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision [carnal law of Gentiles – Rom 2:15] 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.

It is a great privilege to be chosen of God to stand on His Name and His Gospel and bear the stripes from people that claim they love Him and His servants.  This trial is an incredible blessing for those given to live out the Scriptures and be rejected and hated for the hope of the gospel the Lord has planted in our hearts.  Once we bear these stripes we no longer be troubled by those of the false circumcision that are dogs and outside the true faith.

Gal 6:17  From now on let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. 

All preachers of the gospel live those words and bear stripes from their own people as well as the heathen and are paraded naked.  Part of the high calling and the cost we pay when we defend the gospel.

2Co 11:24  Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. 

2Co 11:25  Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; 

2Co 11:26  In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; 

2Co 11:27  In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

The whole plan of God falls away when one does not believe.  May the Lord grant repentance to those who have fallen from His grace.  The faithful will not stand idly but will warn, admonish and blow the trumpet saving all that can hear from this strange fire.

2Co 11:12  But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we. 

2Co 11:13  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 

2Co 11:14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 

2Co 11:15  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. 

This is not the church of any man.  This is the church of Jesus Christ, He is the Head and in His church,  the Lord gets all the glory and all things point back to His promises and His truths and not the reasoning of men.

We are standing in the face of tremendous opposition and contention and preach this gospel to the house of Israel.  We are to warn not to be entangled again with the bondage of unbelief and our carnal reasoning.

Gal 5:1  Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 

Gal 5:2  Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, [keep the law of carnal reasoning/ordinances] Christ shall profit you nothing. [there will be no sanctification]

Gal 5:4  Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. 

Gal 5:5  For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 

We are to fear God and not men.  We are not bowing down to lies and unbelief that now masquerades as “teaching”.  Those telling you to divorce in faith are denying the Lord and His Words and mixing a lie with their truth thus poisoning or leavening the whole.

1Jn 2:21  I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 

1Jn 2:22  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 

1Jn 2:23  Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 

Paul warns us that deceivers will use hypocrisy and speak lies [1Ti 4:1-5] to the people of God.  We cannot address them all here but in due time they will be exposed and burnt up in the fire. One such cunning and craftily worded deceit was just shared with you about working out your own salvation. Yes, we are to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling.  The work of God and who must work it in us is clear and it comes by faith.

Php 2:12  Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 

Php 2:13  For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. 

The work of God starts and ends with the God-given gift of faith and not the law of circumcision and uncircumcision which are the carnal reasonings.

Joh 6:29  Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe [STAND ON FAITH] on him whom he hath sent. 

Woe to those at ease in Zion who have stopped pursuing the work of God in their heart and now lean back on their own understanding and wisdom.  We say Amen to working out your own salvation but what that means needs to be put back under the law of faith and not the carnal law for the lawless that have not received the gift.  That is why this saying is so truthful and the warnings of falling back into perdition. Our work for God is our faith and that is our obedience to the commands and promises of God.

Gal 5:6  For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision [Jews keeping law] availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision [Gentiles keeping law – Rom 2:15] but faith which worketh by love [our obedience]

Gal 5:7  Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? 

Gal 5:8  This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. 

The Word of God needs no helper and it is not going to win any popular votes, the deception and allure of the circumcision is just too great for those not given faith.  The Lord knows who are His and they are being quickened by the Truth.  We are resting from our own works in faith, we no longer have to worry about what the Lord is doing.  We just stand in faith.

Rom 5:5  And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. 

We have great faith in the Lord and His promises and the blessings of keeping His commandments which are not complicated or grievous. We have been killed by the Jews for our testimony of the true gospel of Jesus Christ.  We cannot be moved and wait upon our Lord who promised Elijah and those beheaded for their witness for the gospel that there is a remnant being saved by grace.

Rev 6:9  And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 

Rev 6:10  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 

Rev 6:11  And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. 

 

Rom 11:3  Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. 

Rom 11:4  But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. 

Rom 11:5  Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 

We all have denied the Lord and acted in unbelief, everyone is guilty. Yet many continue to deny the Lord and betray Jesus Christ by their words and deeds and we pray fervently they to be granted repentance for their error.

The shaking promised of the Lord has begun.  We are standing on faith and rejecting all the carnal reasonings of men who search the Scriptures but are not willing [Joh 5:39-40] to come to Him and stand on His commandments.

Heb 12:25  See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: 

Heb 12:26  Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 

Heb 12:27  And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. 

Heb 12:28  Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 

It is through faith in Christ and His commandments and promises that all men will be saved in their appointed time.  True faith will stop the mouths of lions and quench the violence and destruction of strange fire [false gospels].

Heb 11:32  And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: 

Heb 11:33  Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, 

Heb 11:34  Quenched the violence of [strange] fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. 

Heb 11:35  Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: 

Not many stand with us yet we know there is a remnant that are being saved and in that we stand strong in the hope of the gospel we defend with our very lives.  We stand and wait upon the Lord.

2Ti 4:16  At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. 

2Ti 4:17  Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. 

2Ti 4:18  And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 

As long as we are physically able, we will preach in this temple of God and blow the trumpet and preach the gospel to those precious few the Lord has given to hear and to believe.  The Lord is coming quickly to those being saved in this age.  Don’t let any man steal this crown from you.

Rev 3:11  Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 

We now put away those that fornicate with a false gospel and their carnal reasoning.  We give them over to Satan for the destruction of their flesh so their spirit may be saved in their day of the Lord.  We do not divorce those who have now become our enemies and that is our example in physical marriage.  Those in faith, as the believing wife [bride of Christ], through our godly behavior, win back and sanctify our unbelieving spouse [who are of their father the devil] and reconcile them back as the Lord grants them repentance from their fornication.

2Th 3:14  And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him [put away], that he may be ashamed. 

2Th 3:15  Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

The unbelieving in the gospel who are led by the Lord to depart, we let them depart and are under no further bondage.

1Co 7:15  But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. 

In the same way, our Lord is saving us we save those who still abide in sin and unbelief.

Rom 5:8  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 

Joh 20:21  Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

The Lost House of Israel

images

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.

How God Delivers On His Covenant Promises

stars of the heavensContrary to the teachings of the churches and the carnal doctrines believed by all but a very few, God does not need anything from man to make good on His promises. Nothing.

Act 17:25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things

This is because God is working ALL THINGS in our lives. I had a busy day today, wrestling with beasts and contending with religious spirits that stand in opposition to Christ and His doctrine. I wanted to remind and encourage all that still doubt the sovereignty of God to review the promises of the New Covenant and remember how God made covenant with Abraham.

Heb 6:13-14 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.

The Abrahamic covenant is the covenant of faith and is the one God swore on an oath to fulfill and will bring to pass. This quite simply is the salvation of all men. But all of us will walk in unbelief not believing nor understanding this covenant promise that God swore by.  We will think it is up to us to take actions to save ourselves.  The salvation of all men, the very essence of the good news and the promises of God is foretold to us in many places and the first of those are shown below.

Gen 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Gen 28:14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

Any time you see a reference to the dust of the earth, God is speaking about ALL MEN.  Few shall be saved in this life, God’s very Elect but in the end,  all men shall be saved and their numbers shall be as the dust of the earth, the stars of the heavens and the sands of the sea.  These symbols foretell God’s purposes and His plans to save all men in the appointed times for each.  Here are just a few more of the hundreds of witnesses for the salvation of all men.  May those with ears hear these wonderful truths.

Gen 13:16 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.

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.

Gen 15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.

The truth is right here.  All shall be sons of the living God in the end.  We cannot count the stars, the sand, the dust,  this is God telling those given ears to hear that all men shall be saved.  The salvation of all men in God’s appointed time is the blessing that shall come, not might come to all the families and nations of the earth. God swore this on an oath and He is not a man that He should lie.

Num 23:19  God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

God will make good on His promises to save all men.  That is the gospel of good news and it depends not upon man’s free will.

If we go review the promise of the new covenant, which is really the fulfillment of the promise made to Abram, it might surprise some to see that there is no YOU involved in making any of it come to pass. All things are of God and it is especially true that salvation is all of the Lord.

Jon 2:9 Salvation is of the LORD.

This fact that the delivery on the promise of the new covenant is 100% of God and 0% man is seen on both Jeremiah and Ezekiel version of the promise. Let’s take a quick look at each.
Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Jer 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Jer 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

There is no YOU DO ANYTHING here in Jeremiah, it is all I WILL says the Lord. The Lord does it all, He works in each of us according to His will to accomplish all of His good pleasure. This should be no surprise because that is what Paul repeated many times in his epistles to the early church.

Eph 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will

Now let’s take a look at what the prophet Ezekiel was given by God to speak.

Eze 36:22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
Eze 36:23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
Eze 36:24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
Eze 36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
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.
Eze 36:28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
Eze 36:29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
Eze 36:30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.

IT IS ALL OF GOD – GOD DOES IT ALL

What perfect consistency. There is no YOU WILL any of this.  NONE.   God is doing it all. All the things essential for salvation are the work of God. The giving of faith, the granting of repentance, the filling with an earnest deposit of the Holy Spirit, all things are of God. None of it is the work of man. Our job is to believe and even that is given to us by God.

Joh 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

God even tells us why He does it here in Ezekiel 36:22.   The word says He does it to sanctify His great name. Nothing delights the Lord more than to show mercy, He delights in mercy and it is only by His mercy that He reveals Himself to us and brings salvation upon our house.

Nothing brings more glory to God than to turn all of His enemies into His friends and that is exactly what God is going to do.

Psa 66:1 To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm. Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:

Psa 66:2 Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.
Psa 66:3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
Psa 66:4 All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.

This is all the work of a great God who created us flawed on purpose to teach us and to remake us and to bring great honor for His namesake. Christ is the Savior and it is HIM doing all of it. He gave us the wicked deceitful hearts all men are born with and only He will change those hearts when the day and hour ordained for us to be changed arrives. Oh praise God for His goodness and His mercies which endure forever.

Php 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

We can take the promises of God to the bank.  God is faithful even when we are not. All men shall be saved which means delivered of their sins and washed clean. Even right now Christ is seated in the heavens and is not imputing our sins and trespasses against us. He is working all those things to bring about His good and perfect will in our lives in the times ordained of the Father. This is the good news and it becomes real to us only when we are granted the faith to believe it.   If only men would trust in God and not in their delusion of free will and their own strength, initiative and carnal understanding.

Isa 26:4  Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

Yet all of us will at first deny the Lord and will lean on our own understanding and think it is about us choosing and doing all these things to save ourselves.  But that is not the way of God. He is the Savior and the Deliverer and His arm is not too short to save all men.  He has declared that from the beginning and He will bring it to pass.  Far greater blessing to believe that now and trust in HIM.

Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
Heb 8:11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
Heb 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

The days are coming and now are that the dead are hearing the voice of Christ and are awakening to the righteousness that is found only by faith in this good news. I hope you will join me in believing this report.

Isa 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

The circumcision of all men will happen.  It will be accomplished without hands and flesh and the free will of man will have no part in bringing it to pass.  Until we are brought to the place to believe this we will continue to oppose the true work of God.

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:

God is Faithful to His Covenants

God’s promises coming to pass, do not depend on the whims of his creation.  God is in control and has designed His plan with all foreknowledge.  We truly limit God and deny His power when we believe that man has the ability to thwart God’s plan and purposes.  This is silly.  God is the potter and all men are mere pieces of clay.  This is the common denominator of all the false teaching out there, it denies the power of God and of the Cross.  The focus of this post will be on the Covenant promises of God after we first review HIS character.

Numbers 23:9  God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?

Let God be true and every man be a liar!  Our God is faithful.  He is faithful even when His creation is not faithful.  God never changes.  Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forevermore!  His mercy endures forever.  God is good.  His anger is but for a short time.  His love never fails.  Nothing is impossible for God.  Jesus has won the victory over even death.   It is deceived men who continue to deny God’s power in their teachings and limit God and thereby exalt themselves.  All what is in this paragraph is clearly told us in the Scriptures.  But many do not believe.

God is a just God who will punish the wicked and is angry with the wicked every day,  but this does not change who God is as a loving Father.  His punishments are always just and given in love and with mercy.  This is His nature and He changes not.  This is why we are told to love our enemies and do good to those that hate us.  That is because that is what God does to His enemies and expects His children to be just like Him.  There is not a different standard for us and God.  Consider what the Lord Jesus had to say of such things from Luke 6.

But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. 36 Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.

So you see my friends,  God’s punishments in the end are for the good of all.  David came to see and understand this and my hope is you will to when the veil of an eternal hell and a God that stays angry for ever is lifted from your eyes.  Then you will truly believe.

Psalm 19:9-12

The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
Yea, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned,

These judgments are given in love.  To warn us and to turn us away from wickedness.  But the mercy never ends, even after we die.  I believe God can raise people died and buried in the ground from the dead and give them eternal life.  Do you?  That is exactly what our Father did with the Lord Jesus Christ, who has forever won the victory over death for ALL MEN for ALL NATIONS, ALL FAMILIES.  Yet incredibly many that profess to know the Scriptures do not even beleive it.  One day we shall see all of God’s covenantal promises fulfilled.  All tongues will be confessing that Jesus is the Lord to the glory of God.  The great Apostle Paul spoke against the scoffers and mockers of God’s power and the full breadth of richness of this marvelous gospel.

1 COR 15:16 For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. 17 And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!

But Christ is risen!  The dead do rise!  Believe this wonder and walk by faith.

I want to end this post with a mini review of the covenant promises of our faithful God.  They all will come to pass and be fulfilled.

Isaiah 46:11 Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, surely I will do it.

Promises to the Fathers of Faith

Genesis 12:3  I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you ALL the families of the earth shall be blessed

The father of all faith is Abraham.  What this covenants say is that through faith,  God is going to bless all the families of the earth.  Jesus was this blessing and His sacrifice has indeed fulfilled this promise that God swore, and HE cannot lie.  The lamb that was shed from the foundation of the whole world has come and HE has taken away the sin of the world.  But very few believe that God is faithful to His promises, very few.

John 1:29  Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

Gen 18:17And the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, 18 since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and ALL the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

Gen 22:16By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son17 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 In your seed ALL the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”

Thank you Abraham for your obedience.  But really thank you Jesus.  The same promise given to Abraham was repeated and given to his son Isaac.  Those in faith will receive this blessing and ultimately all will come to faith and will confess Jesus as Lord.

GEN 26:4 And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed ALL the nations of the earth shall be blessed

After Jacob wrestled with God in unbelief and his eyes opened,  the same blessing came upon him.  God gave this promise to Jacob in a dream and upon awakening he could now see spiritually (Gen 28:16).  Here was the promise.

Genesis 28:14 Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed ALL the families of the earth shall be blessed.

The Scriptures foretell of these promises throughout.  I believe them and there is no confusion any more on what the word “ALL” means in these promises.  God is God and His power and wisdom have no boundaries.  I pray all will stand firm on the promises of God and come into the covenant of faith, knowing of this blessed hope for all humanity.  It will change your life when you see it.  If you believe not that God can raise dead people, physically and spiritually and breathe new life into them,  you believe not the gospel and not in Christ and are still in your sins.

Christ has risen and rules and reigns today from the heavens.  Through Adam we all came into sin but through Christ,  all will come into eternal life in the order and sequence that God ordains.

1 COR 15:22-26  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. 23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming. 24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.

Death will be destroyed for ALL in the very end.  Believe it.  God spoke it.  We can all look forward to this glorious day when all knees shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.  God is good and His mercies endure forever!  Hallelujah.

Carnal man will not believe these promises and the absolute power of God.  Such a man will believe that God’s purposes can be circumvented by God’s creation.  It is really ridiculous when one comes to see the depth of the deception in the church today.  Many of you continue to call God a liar in your unbelief.  It is you who do not believe that need to repent and turn your heart to God and trust what He has promised.  Only in His mercy can you come to Him.

ISA 46:10  Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,

10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure

God’s get His will done.  All that pleases Him is done.  He delights in mercy and loves to turn enemies into friends.    His pleasure, all of it gets done regardless of what the piece of clay thinks.  I am so glad that God has saved us all rather than leaving it to us to do it.

I am going to believe God and His promises knowing that all that was spoken will come to pass.  It will not depend on the will of man in any way shape or form.  In the end, God has the complete and total victory over sin. His grace wins out.  Praises to the King.  I leave you with a excerpt from a Pslam.

Psalm 66:3-5

“How awesome are Your works!  AMEN – tis all the work of the POTTER
Through the greatness of Your power
Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.
 ALL  the earth shall worship You
And sing praises to You;
They shall sing praises to Your name
