“Do ‘You’ LOVE them: ‘Jews?’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (Romans 11:6-to-12) But if this is by grace; then it is no longer on the basis of works. Otherwise, grace; would no longer be grace.
(Rom 11:7) What, then; does this mean? It means that Israel; failed to obtain; what it was striving for; but those who were chosen obtained it. However, the rest were hardened.
(Rom 11:8) As it is written, “To this day God has given them a spirit of deep sleep. Their eyes do not see, and their ears do not hear.”
(Rom 11:9) And David says, “Let their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a punishment for them.
(Rom 11:10) Let their eyes be darkened so that they cannot see, and keep their backs forever bent.”
(Rom 11:11) And so I ask, “They have not stumbled so as to fall; have they?” Of course not! On the contrary; because of their stumbling; salvation has come to the ‘Gentiles’ to make the Jews jealous.
(Rom 11:12) Now if their stumbling means riches for the world; and if their fall means riches for the gentiles; how much more will their full inclusion mean!
*** (Ephesians 2:8-9-10) For by such grace you have been saved through faith. This does ‘Not’ come from you; it is the gift of God
(Eph 2:9) and ‘Not’ the result of works; lest anyone Boast. [i.e. – I was water baptized]
(Eph 2:10) For we are his masterpiece; created in Christ Jesus; for good works; that God prepared long ago: to be our way of life.
*** (Titus 3:3-to-7) For we ourselves also were once foolish; disobedient; deceived; slaving for various lusts and pleasures; living in malice and envy; hateful; hating one another.
(Tit 3:4) But when the kindness and love of God our Savior; toward man appeared,
(Tit 3:5) Not by works of righteousness which we have done; but according to His mercy; He saved us; through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, [Romans 8:9]
(Tit 3:6) Whom He poured out on us abundantly; through Jesus Christ our Savior,
(Tit 3:7) that being justified by His grace; we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
“Do ‘You’ know your Bible? – 101”
Today, Many who call themselves… Christians; do ‘Not’ know their Bibles! Many know only about the Bible and call it God’s Word; but do ‘Not’ know it for themselves! God’s written plan of Salvation… was offered to save ‘All Mankind!’ First, because ‘All’ have sinned after “Adam & Eve”… “SIN/SINS” and it is a part of our: ‘Fallen Human Nature’. We “Sin”… ‘because’ we are “Sinners!” And because we are Sinners… we ‘All’ need a Savior!” Sin is the Root”… And “Sins are the Fruit!” We know about God’s foreknowledge; only by the Scriptures. God has given mankind a ‘Free Will’ to make that choice… “To Obey God”… or “To Rebel Against God!” Without that ‘Free Will’… we would be only robots! The OT Jew also had that same Choice. The difference between; the Gentile & the Jew; was only… “The Covenant between GOD and the Jew!” Both are Sinners! God ‘Did’ make provision for the Gentile… but only according to the Law of GOD! Their own way… was ‘Not’ acceptable to God! The Jews has preserved the Scriptures though the ages. No gentile writings have had such care.
*** (John 17:24) Father, I [Jesus] desire that those; whom You [God] have given Me; that they may be with Me where I am; that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You have loved Me before the ‘Foundation’ of the world.
*** (Ephesians 1:2-to-6) Grace be to you; and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
(Eph 1:3) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; Who blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Christ;
(Eph 1:4) according as He [God] chose us in Him [Christ] before the ‘Foundation’ of the world; that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,
(Eph 1:5) having predestined us; to the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself; according to the good pleasure of His will,
(Eph 1:6) to the praise of the glory of His grace; in which He has made us ‘Accepted’ in the One having been loved.
*** (1Peter 1:17) And if you call on the Father [God]; Who without respect of persons judges according to the work of each one; pass the time of your earthly residence in fear [of God],
(1Pe 1:18) knowing that you were ‘Not’ redeemed with corruptible things; silver or gold, from your vain manner of life; handed down from your fathers,
(1Pe 1:19) but with the precious blood of Christ; as of a lamb without blemish and without spot;
(1Pe 1:20) indeed having been foreknown before the ‘Foundation’ of the world; but revealed in the last times for you,
(1Pe 1:21) those believing in God through Him [Jesus]; He [God] Who raised Him [Jesus] up from the dead and gave Him glory; so that your = faith and hope = might be in God.
(1Pe 1:22) Purifying your souls in the ‘Obedience’ of the Truth; through the [Holy] Spirit to unfeigned love of the brothers; love one another fervently out of a pure heart,
(1Pe 1:23) having been born again; not of corruptible seed; but of incorruptible; through the living Word of God, and abiding forever.
*** (Revelation 13:8) And all dwelling on the earth will worship it; those whose names have ‘Not’ been written; in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain; from the ‘Foundation’ of the world.
*** (Romans 11:4) But what does the Divine [God] answer; say to him? “I have ‘Reserved’ to Myself; seven thousand men; who have ‘Not’ bowed the knee to Baal.”
“Free Will – 101”…Blog.
The Jew, to whom the “Law of God” was given… repeatedly “Failed in their Assignment”… “To Evangelize the World for God!” If ‘You’ have ‘read & studied’ the OT Scriptures… ‘You’ know this Fact! But if ‘You’ have no knowledge of the Jews; and their… “CONDITIONAL” Covenant of Obedience”… both for “Blessings & Cursings” of the Law; ‘You’ will ‘Not’ understand; God’s Love for His Covenant People… “The Jews!” Too many call themselves Christians… who are “Not Truly Born Again”… by God’s Holy Spirit! Surely the Love of God… is in the ‘hearts & minds’ of them… who share the Holy Spirit of God! Automatically; they… Love for the Jew… born out of that: “Knowledge of God!” Many simply walk a ‘Church Aisle’ or say the ‘Sinners Prayer’… and believe they are “Automatically Christian!” Not So…! Open your Bible and Please Read Out Loud… “John 7:38-39”…? Is your belief in Him – Christ Jesus… “According to the Scriptures?” Did ‘You’ know the OT Scriptures speak; “Much of Him”…? He [Jesus] said ‘So’… “Luke 24:44-to-49”
*** (Romans 9:3) For I myself was wishing to be accursed from Christ for my brothers; my kinsmen [Jews] according to the flesh,
(Rom 9:4) who are Israelites [Jews]; to whom belong the adoption; and the glory; and the covenants; and the giving of the Law; and the service of God; and the promises;
(Rom 9:5) whose are the fathers; and of whom is the Christ according to flesh; He being God over all; blessed forever. Amen.
(Rom 9:6) Not however that the Word of God has failed; for ‘Not’ all those of Israel; are Israel;
*** (John 4:20-to-24) Our fathers worshiped in this mountain; and You [Jews] say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. [Jeremiah 3:17]
(John 4:21) Jesus said to her, Woman; believe Me; the hour is coming when you shall neither worship the Father; in this mountain; nor yet at Jerusalem.
(John 4:22) You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship; for salvation is of the Jews.
(John 4:23) But the hour is coming, and now is; when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in Spirit and Truth; for the Father seeks such to worship Him.
(John 4:24) God is a Spirit; and they who worship Him; must worship in Spirit and in Truth.
*** (Romans 2:28-29) For he is not a Jew; who is one outwardly [being born Jewish]; nor is circumcision that outwardly in flesh; [Gentile converted to Judaism]
(Rom 2:29) but he is a Jew; who is one inwardly; and circumcision is of the heart; in spirit and not in letter; whose praise is ‘Not’ from men; but from God.
“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (John 3:3) Jesus answered and said unto him; Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a man be born again; he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Where in the OT… were the “Gentiles” offered salvation? Many places, if ‘You’ know the OT Scriptures. God offered salvation… but only on God’s Terms; not their own. The “Ten Commandments” surely were a thorn in the flesh… to those heathens; who had “Many Idol gods” [small-g]! But throughout… there were many! Rehab the harlot… who received Joshua and the spies… knew about God! And what He had done in His judgment of Egypt and their heathen gods. Israel after God repeatedly ‘Spanked’ them… and in their “FINAL Rejection of Christ Jesus”… gave the Gospel to the Gentiles. This “Time of the Gentiles”… has been happening for the past ‘2,000 years’. During… “Daniels 70th Week”… the Jews will be restored; and Christ Jesus will reign here on earth… for One Thousand Years! The Jew will be in Preeminence!
*** (Luke 21:24) They will fall by the edge of the sword; and be carried off as captives among all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles; = until the “Times of the Gentiles” = are fulfilled.
*** (Romans 11:25) For I would Not, brethren; that you should be ‘Ignorant’ of this mystery; lest you should be wise; in your own self conceits; = that [Spiritual] blindness in part is happened to Israel [Jews]; = until the “Fullness of the Gentiles” be come in.
*** (Psalms 98:2) The LORD Jehovah has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has unveiled to the eyes of the nations [Gentiles].
(Psa 98:3) He has remembered His mercy and His truth; toward the house of Israel [Jews]; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of the LORD Jehovah.
*** (2Chronicles 6:32-33) And also to the stranger who is ‘Not’ of Your people Israel; but has come from a far country for Your great name's sake; and Your mighty hand; and Your stretched out arm; if they come and pray in this house;
(2Chron 6:33) then hear from Heaven; from Your dwelling-place; and do according to ‘all’ that the stranger [Gentile] calls to You for; so that ‘All’ people of the earth may know Your name, and fear You; as Your people Israel; and may know that this house which I [Solomon] have built is called by Your name.
*** (Zechariah 8:22-23) And many peoples and strong nations; shall come to seek the LORD Jehovah of Hosts in Jerusalem; and to seek the favor of the face of Jehovah.
(Zech 8:23) So says the LORD Jehovah of Hosts: In those days ten men [Gentiles]; out of all languages of the nations; shall take hold, and will seize the skirt of a man; a Jew, saying; We will go with you; for we have heard that God is with you.
Perhaps a reading of ‘Romans’… and what the Scripture say about the Jew…? Remember, “Christ Jesus is a Jew”… of the Lineage of the Jews; the Lion of the tribe of Judah…! How could One: “Hate the Jews”… and then ‘SAY’… “I Love Jesus”…? Sorry, that is “Not Possible”…!
*** (1John 4:20) If anyone says, I love God; = and hates his brother [A Jew]; = he is a Liar. For if he does ‘Not’ love his brother; whom he ‘has’ seen; = how can he love God; whom he has ‘Not’ seen?
*** (Galatians 6:15-16) For in Christ Jesus; neither circumcision has any strength; nor un-circumcision; but a new creation.
(Gal 6:16) And as many as walk according to this rule; peace and mercy be upon them and upon the “Israel of God”. [Jew & Gentile]
