Beloved, it is we Jews that shall be saved when Yahshua shall come again to the earth. Concerning this Yahshua said to the Samaritan woman (a gentile): John 4:22; ‘You worship you know not what: we know what we worship: for SALVATION is of the Jews.’
Concerning this prophet Isaiah also wrote thus: Isaiah 45:17; ‘But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting SALVATION: you shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.’ Isaiah 62:11; ‘Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the world, Say you to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your SALVATION comes; behold, His reward is with him, and His work before Him.’
Beloved, who then qualifies to be a true Israelite or a true Jew? Is it those who are born in the flesh by Jewish parents? Of course the answer is a big NO.
It is not He that is born in the flesh that is a true Jew. That is why Yahshua said to Nicodemus, a Jew according to the flesh: John 3:7; ‘Marvel not that I said to you, You must be born again.’
Beloved, it is vain if one is a Jew according to the flesh and not a Jew in the Spirit. Yahshua said: John 6:63; ‘It is the spirit that quickens: the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life.’ John 4:24; ‘God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.’
Yahshua said to Nicodemus: John 3:5; ‘Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say to you, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.’
Beloved, if Nicodemus refuses to be born again, how can he then sit with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of God: Matthew 8:11-12; ‘And I say to you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
Beloved, have you seen how one must be born again by water and the Spirit? What are the water and the Spirit in the first place? John 6:63;’…the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life.’ This was evident that when Yahshua said all must be born again, He was talking about being born of the Word of God.i.e. a change of heart, repentance.
Even as apostle Peter points out: 1 Peter 1:23-25; ‘Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and abides for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower thereof falls away: But the word of the Lord endures for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached to you.’
1 Peter 1:25; ‘…And this is the word which by the gospel is preached to you.’ Mark 16:15; ‘And He said to them, Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believes and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believes not shall be damned.’
Beloved, anyone at all can become a Jew in the spirit, A TRUE JEW, upon believing the gospel and being baptized: Isaiah 44:3-5; ‘For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour My Spirit upon your seed, and My blessing upon your offspring: And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses. One shall say, I am the LORD’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand to the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel.’
That is why John the Baptist said to the Pharisees: Matthew 3:9-10; ‘And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say to you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham. And now also the ax is laid to the root of the trees: therefore every tree which brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.’
How is God raising children to Abraham? Of course, it is true the gospel that is preached abroad. Matthew 8:11;‘And I say to you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.’
Beloved, the Pharisees are false Jews because they are only Jews in the flesh and not in the Spirit. They are not the true children of Abraham. The true children of Abraham are those that will sit with Abraham and Jacob and Isaac in the kingdom of heaven and these are Jews in the spirit.
Yahshua and the Pharisees: John 8:39; ‘They answered and said to Him, Abraham is our father. Jesus says to them, If you were Abraham children, you would do the works of Abraham.’
Yahshua again said to them: John 8:41; ‘You do the deeds of your father.’ John 8:44; ‘You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.’ Beloved, this is even evident that the Pharisees were false Jews, false seed of Abraham because they do not do the works of Abraham.
Abraham’s seed are seen by the fruit they bear. Acts 10:34-35;‘Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that fears Him, and works righteousness, is accepted with Him.’
What was the work of Abraham? Genesis 26:5; ‘…Abraham obeyed My voice, and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.’
Isaiah 42:24-25; ‘Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? Did not the LORD, He against whom we have sinned? For they would not walk in His ways, neither were they obedient to His law. Therefore He has poured upon him the fury of His anger, and the strength of battle: and it has set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.’
Beloved, the Pharisees and scribes were not obedient to Yahweh’s laws neither did they even know the law. Concerning this Yahshua said to them: John 8:32; ‘And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’ John 17:17; ‘…Your word is truth.’ Psalm 119:142; ‘…Your law is the truth.’ Psalm 119:18;’Open You mine eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of Your law.’ The truth Yashshua declared was the law.
Beloved, it was concerning the false Jews, Pharisees, that Yahshua wrote to the church of Philadelphia: Revelation 3:9; ‘Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.’
Beloved, the Pharisees are of the synagogue of Satan: John 8:34-36; ‘Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say to you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abides not in the house for ever: but the Son abides ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.’ Whosoever, meaning, any creature that commits sin is the servant of sin, i.e. works for Satan and is of Satan.
Apostle John writes thus: 1 John 3:9; ‘Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin; for His seed remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.’ Luke 8:11; ‘…The seed is the word of God.’ Therefore beloved, Abraham’s seed have the word of God in them and they cannot commit sin.
Beloved, have you seen how that when Yahshua said to the Samaritan woman at the well ( John 4:22) that SALVATION is of the Jews, He was not referring to the Jewish company of Pharisees?
But Yahshua was referring to all creatures that hear His Voice and follow Him. And these are the seed of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob.
He said to the Pharisees: John 10:26-27; ‘But you believe not, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.’ Therefore anyone at all that believes in Yahshua is a Jew, an Israelite, Abraham’s seed.
God said, Matthew 22:32; ‘I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.’
Beloved, if God is the God of Jacob (Israel) then the children of Jacob (Israel) are not dead people (Mark 16:16;’…he that believes not shall be damned.’ Revelation 21:8;’But the fearful and unbelieving…shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death). But God is the God of people with eternal life, people who have the Son.
Beloved, Israelites are people with eternal life, people who have the Son because truly God is the God of Israel. Therefore beloved, anyone that has the Son has eternal life and is an Israelite.
Let’s take a look at this:
Acts 8:1-4; ‘And Saul was consenting to his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison. Therefore they that were scattered abroad went everywhere preaching the word.’
Beloved, this above scripture says the church of Christ was scattered abroad.
Now beloved, let us look at how apostle James referred to the church scattered abroad: James 1:1;‘JAMES, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.’
This is evident that the body of Christ is Israel, the twelve tribes of Israel. And any stranger that believes in the Yahshua is also become part of Israel, an Israelite: Isaiah 56:3;’Neither let the son of the stranger that has joined himself to the Lord speak, saying, the Lord has utterly separated me from His people…’ Acts 2:47;‘…And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.’
Matthew 24:31;‘And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.’
Revelation 10:7;’But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets.’ Isaiah 11:11-12;‘And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people…from the four corners of the earth.’
Jeremiah 23:7-8;‘Therefore behold, the days come, says the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD lives, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The LORD lives, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries where I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.’
Beloved, it is we Jews that shall be saved: Zechariah 8:23;‘Thus says the LORD of hosts: In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.’
Beloved, God is with us Jews. Yahshua is coming again for us. He will put joy in our hearts.
Repent as in the days of Mordecai, how the people became Jews in order not to be destroyed: Esther 8:16-17;‘The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honor. And in every province, and in every city, wherever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.’
Let the fear of Yahshua fall upon you that you may repent and become part of His people, Israel.
Eugene, a Jew.
