Jew or Greek?

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.

Gal 6 is telling us a born again Christian is the Israel of God

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;
Eph 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

Paul is refering to aliens from the commonwealth of Israel as people without Christ.

Gal 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
Gal 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

Paul is telling us Jerusalem is now above

Rev 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

The place where Christ was crucified is Sodom and Egypt. (which is referring to spiritual captivity, bondage to lies, deception.)

Deut 1:8 Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.

The land is given to Abrahams seed

Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Christians are Abrahams seed. Abrahams seed by faith.

Heb 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

The land is spiritual, Sion above, heavenly Jerusalem

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.

A Jew is someone who is a partaker of the everlasting Covenant with God which is symbolized by circumcision. When a person truly repents he enters into covenant with God.

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:

Being born again means to have the covenant written on our hearts. God promised the covenant to Israel. This is when Israel was born again, after the cross. The church (never capitalized, never a proper noun, is born again Israel. The new testament congregation is not named “Church” church is not capitalized. Its name is Israel. Capitalized a proper noun. In scripture the church is a gathering of people not an institution. This is very important. The word church is ekklēsia
church G1577
ἐκκλησία
ekklēsia
ek-klay-see’-ah
From a compound of G1537 and a derivative of G2564; a calling out, that is, (concretely) a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Christian community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both): – assembly, church.

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.

Scripture is clear the things of God are spiritually discerned.

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

We are chosen by grace, the new testament body is elected, chosen just like the old testament body.

Mat 20:16  So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

Again the church, the ekklesia are the “called out ones” those who are called, chosen and faithful. Those that remain faithful, enduring to the end.
Rev 17:14  These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

The called, chosen and faithful are the ones who make it.

2Pe 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

We must be sure of our election, that we are one of the chosen.

2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Num 6:27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.

Gods true covenant followers, were, are, and always will be The Chosen People, Israel.

Rom 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

While Paul teaches there is no difference between Jew or Gentile, todays modern church has divided the 2 again and continues to distinguish between Jew and Gentile. These doctrines originated from the Schofield Study Bible, and were distributed by Jesuit controlled Oxford Publishing into the seminaries. 100 years of conditioning and Satan has convinced Christians that there is a difference between Jew and Gentile. The church failing to realize “they” are jews and are Gods chosen people is very dangerous. When we see a common theme concerning those who forsake their heritage in scripture, we understand the magnitude of the effects of this false doctrine.

Cognitive Dissonance

The term cognitive dissonance is used to describe the feeling of discomfort that results from holding two conflicting beliefs. When there is a discrepancy between beliefs and behaviors, something must change in order to eliminate or reduce the dissonance.

When we understand our identity as Israel we are able to rightly divide the word of truth. we realize the words of the prophets are addressed to us.

We understand that the book of Revelation is the account of the spiritual journey of the spiritual children of Israel up out of Egypt, the bondage of deception, false doctrine, lies, to Jerusalem above, the spiritual promised land.

Isa 11:15 And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod.
Isa 11:16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.
1Co 10:9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
1Co 10:10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

The parallels in Revelation to the Exodus are there for those with discernment and eyes to see. We have the 7 new testament congregations of whom when purged become the 12 spiritual tribes.

Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Now united as the prophecy of the 2 sticks is fulfilled.

Zec 11:14 Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands, that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.
Eze 37:19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
Eze 37:20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
Eze 37:21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
Eze 37:22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
Eze 37:23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
Eze 37:24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.

We have the 7 trumpet judgements breaking down the spiritual walls of Jericho preparing the spiritual children of God to enter the promised land.

Jos 6:4  And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.
Jos 6:5  And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.
Heb 11:30  By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.

Rev 8:6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

We have the serpents and scorpions in the wilderness along the narrow path. Jesus give us power over them. The serpents and scorpions are the false teachers, the idol shephards and their false doctrine.

Deu 8:15 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;
Luk 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Rev 9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
Rev 9:19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.

Satan and his mouth pieces function as one.

Isa 9:15 The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.

Deception is the threshing floor, the dividing mechanism God uses to separate his flock. His sheep hear his voice, his sheep, the elect, the chosen, are not decieved.

Psa 55:21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet werethey drawn swords.

We have the servants the prophets the voices in the wilderness, in sackcloth and ashes proclaiming Gods truth to the Harlot Religious System.

Rev 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 hath declared to his servants the prophets.

We have the 2 Witnesses, a type and shadow of Zerubabel, against spiritual Babylon, a symbol again of captivity, deception and bondage to lies, setting the plumbline in the midst of Jerusalem measuring the 7 churches, congregation, the house of God.

Zec 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
Rev 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

We have the plagues, now spiritual, as Gods wrath is poured out on the ungodly.

Rev 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
Zec 1:4 Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have cried, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings: but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith the LORD.

The 2 witnesses are former prophets, also known as the former rain. They have “power to shut heaven, and hold off the latter rain”. The pattern of the former prophets as the former rain, ministers of Gods moderate outpouring of understanding preparing the multiudes to receive the latter rain outpouring. The “ensample” of the disciples as the former prophets of the day preparing for the latter rain outpouring at pentecost, will replay at the “end of the world” this is written for our admonition. Today the “former prophets” are the lone voices in the wilderness calling modern Israel the apostate harlot church to repentance.

This journey ends standing with the Lord, for those who gain victory over the beast.

Rev 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.
Rev 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, andover the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

The “sea”, the spiritual “Red Sea”, of great tribulation is now glass for those who “had gotten victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark and over the number of his name”.

Rev 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

The “ensample” of the Political Religious System that crucified our saviour who’s deadly wound inflicted at the time of the first coming today has been healed.

Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

At the resurrection, Satan and his beast system, received it’s deadly wound. Satan was bound.

Rev 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. The word thousand is symbolic

Thousand G5507
χίλιοι
chilioi
khil’-ee-oy
Plural of uncertain affinity; a thousand: – thousand.

Satan was bound by the power of the resurrection and held in his prison, the pit, by the gospel. Today the true covenant gospel has been replaced by a gospel of flatteries. Prosperity, unconditional grace, grace without truth, mingling with the world, defying the call for sanctification. Todays modern church is an abomination of false doctrine and lies. At the very foundation of the Great Apostasy, the Falling Away from truth is the forfeiting of our heritage as The Israel of God.

Dan 11:32  And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

The church has fallen away from sound doctrine, is doing wickedly against the covenant, the flatteries gospel has no restraining power, Satan has been released from his prison. Any doubt? Look around people.

2Th 2:3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling
away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2Th 2:4  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Contemplate what 2 Thes 2 is saying when we understand what Paul has to say about the temple of God.

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.

2Th 2:5  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2Th 2:6  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

Letteth G2722
κατέχω
katechō
kat-ekh’-o
From G2596 and G2192; to hold down (fast), in various applications (literally or figuratively): – have, hold (fast), keep (in memory), let, X make toward, possess, retain, seize on, stay, take, withhold.

Satan is now loosed, he who “letteth” the restraining power of the true covenant gospel, has been taken out of the way, as allowing Satan to continue deceiving the nations, the deadly wound is healed. The word thousand is symbolic, it “means an indetermined number”

Isa 11:16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

Again for our admonition for whom the end of the world has come, these things are written.

Rom 9:27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnantt shall be save.

This study will continue.

    The verse I thought of as I read our teaching comes from Jeremiah. I believe that it ties in with what you are saying.
    Jer50: 4“In those days, at that time,” declares the Lord, “the people of Israel and the people of Judah together will go in tears to seek the Lord their God. 5They will ask the way to Zion and turn their faces toward it. They will come and bind themselves to the Lord in an everlasting covenant that will not be forgotten. 6“My people have been lost sheep; their shepherds have led them astray and caused them to roam on the mountains. They wandered over mountain and hill and forgot their own resting place. 7Whoever found them devoured them;
    their enemies said, ‘We are not guilty, for they sinned against the Lord, their true pasture,
    the Lord, the hope of their fathers.’
    I am encouraged as I see people waking up to what has and is going on at this time. Blessings……

      Hey Tim
      Well that’s something because that’s the next section of scripture I have ready for the next Rev 11 Study. All these parallels to Sodom Egypt and Babylon in Revelation it’s pretty clear we’re pretty much dealing with Babylon. After seeing the blatant display at the half time show Madonnas outright Satanic Ritual, I mean you gotta know where we are in the sceme of things. Jan 22 2013 will be 40 years since Rowe v Wade. 40 years is Gods time of testing. I sure focus on the spiritual but with these outworkings of abomination in the physical it only tells me we better study to find our place as the sins of Babylon have sure reached heaven. I tell people that want to know what’s coming I just say read Jeremiah 50 and 51.
      I’m right on the same page with you the next Rev 11 study will be taking a good look at Jer 50. So much there thanks for this note brother
      Chris

    Sorry, that should say “as I read your teaching”

  3. Deu 18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
    Deu 18:19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

    Here Moses tells the flesh children of Israel it will be “required”. Not an option. To Hearken unto the words Christ speaks in the Fathers name.
