You have heard that it was said… Matt5
You have heard that it was said… from pulpits, at conferences and on Christian radio and TV,
“Physical, political Israel is God’s Israel.”
But I say to you, dear saint, you are the real Israel. You see, there is a true and a fake Israel. In OT scripture, the Israel that is under God’s condemnation and judgment are those who say they are His, but who commit evil and spiritual adultery against Him, giving Him lip service but forsaking Him altogether, worshiping and serving other gods. But faithful Israel was God’s Israel. Now, the deceivers in the Christianity of our day try to sell to you this belief that the physical Israel is the only Israel there is, and that we must be in awe of it. There is physical Israel which is a political nation, with a political Zionism government down in Jerusalem below. (Some will also teach that this Israel includes a physical ethnic group of people, from physical seed of men and that they are the chosen people.) Physical political Israel denies the Father and the Son; they practice the occult religion of Pharisaical Talmudic Judaism, which is Babylonian luciferian occult. Christianity teaches you to exalt this Israel, support it and give it honor, obiescence and allegiance. The father of this physical political Zionist Israel is the devil; death and hell do follow it. It was created by and for witchcraft. Physical political Israel is an imposter, pretending to be the Israel of God.
But there is another Israel and it is the one that is blessed by God. This is the spiritual Israel; those from every ethnic group who are in Christ Jesus by faith, through the gospel of our Lord Jesus, by the grace of God. All those in Christ are the chosen people. Spiritual Israel has a King, it is King Jesus. Spiritual Israel has a government, the unseen Kingdom of God that is not of this world. Spiritual Israel has and is a Jerusalem also, but it is Jerusalem above. The Father of this Israel is the LORD of life and glory. Spiritual Israel has no home in this world, our home is with Christ above in the heavenlies. Spiritual Israel comes from the seed that was promised Abraham, and that seed is CHRIST. The promises to Israel and the birthright belong to us! Because the promises and birthright belong to the faithful in Christ, Who is the inheritor of all these things. Our inheritance is in Christ and is Christ. Here is some scripture to encourage you:
And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God. Gal6:16, Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.Gal3:7, for we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh, Phil3:3, For they are not all Israel who are descended from Israel; Rom9:6, And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Gal3:29, Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” John1:49
Dear saint, you are this Israel of God.
