PRAY FOR THOSE OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH FIRST. THE CHRISTIANS. Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
(Eph 6:11 KJV) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
I AM OF THE RIGHTFUL OPINION THAT EVERYONE EVERYDAY, ALWAYS HAS TO BE 100 PERCENT SOLD OUT TO GOD, MY LORD JESUS CHRIST and none of this is optional..
And one cannot hold on to any false, pet doctrines, pet goals, personal desires, for still doing anything one ‘s way is really bad and leads, will lead to loads of personal problems, hardships as well now.. for if you give the devil even one inch of your life he will take ten thousand miles of it next still too..
And I love Israel still has nothing to do with the reality that they the Jews are no longer entitled to claim the Promised land after Jesus kicked them out again or that most of the Jews will not go to Heaven Romans 2 6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds: 7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: 8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, 9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 11 For there is no respect of persons with God.
God in love is not an Ostrich and he does not still lead people to avoid the reality, such as their need for personal salvation, nor does he God allow people to live in lies though such as the lies of Judaisms is a valid religion, cause if they and other tend to have such major Biblical errors they likely are not even real Christians, Holy Spirit led firstly still..
God and I love Arabs, Palestinians, Russians, Jews , Chinese, Koreans, American, Germans, etc., yes everyone and do you also or do you like to show false partialities?
or favoritism? such as I love Israel only?
Both the Old and New Testaments clearly indicate that God does not show partiality among the people, since He is the Creator of all.16 Because of this principle, the Jews too were commanded to be impartial. .”So I also have made you despised and abased before all the people, just as you are not keeping My ways but are showing partiality in the instruction. “Do we not all have one father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously each against his brother so as to profane the covenant of our fathers? (Malachi 2:9-10) “Now then let the fear of the LORD be upon you; be very careful what you do, for the LORD our God will have no part in unrighteousness or partiality or the taking of a bribe.” (2 Chronicles 19:7)
Being chosen now for the Jews did not always bring great blessings, since the Jews were held to a higher level of accountability, and were judged for their failures.
The Bible makes it clear that God does not show partiality, since He created all people. He commands His people to behave likewise. The Jews now also still are not the center of the Bible as Jesus Christ is .
The whole Bible is about the coming of Jesus Christ on earth as well as his supreme rulership now too. Jesus often rebuked the Jewish leaders for bringing false doctrines into the beliefs of the Jews, Israelites by promoting traditions that “made the commandments of God of none effect.” “Thus you have made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Matthew 15:6
Acts 10 28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. 29 Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me? 30 And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing, 31 And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God. 32 Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee. 33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God. 34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. 36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all: 37 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; 38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. 39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: 40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;
In reality, “the Bible says that the Jews were selected to be a blessing to all the nations of the world. In fact, the same Bible now that says that God chose the Jews also says that God does not show partiality and commands the Jews also still to to love other peoples. The Old Testament indicates that the Jews were not at all prospered because of their righteousness, since they were “a stubborn people.”
Yes ” One the ways that the Jews were chosen to be a blessing to all the peoples of the earth was that the Messiah was to be born through the line of David. and yet the rejected Him so why should I be surprised if they now also do hate me too.. John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. Being chosen as the people through whom God would send the Messiah was no walk in the park for the Jews. God expected His chosen people to strictly follow His moral laws and not follow the evil ways of their neighbors. Now because they failed to be faithful to God, the Jews were scattered among the nations, where they “profaned the name of the Lord.” even had spent 70 year exile in Babylon. Now Salvation is NOT “of the Jews” directly but indirectly by Jesus Christ alone now… And that is why it’s falsely Against the Law in Israel to Convert to Christianity (Evangelical soul-winning is illegal)
The clearly stated Biblical need of all persons, even Jews to be personally saved by Jesus Christ is undeniable. John 3:3… “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Carefully notice that Jesus spoke this to Nicodemus, a Jew, who was a religious leader over the JEWS. Every lost sinner must be born-again if they want to go to Heaven? 2nd Thessalonians 1:8 applies to everyone.
2 Thessalonians 1: 1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: 2 Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth; 4 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: 5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: 6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; 7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; 10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. 11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: 12 That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ
30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
1 John 3
14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
1 John 4
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
All Persons not fully sold out to God cannot expect all of their prayers, needs now to be answered, supplied. Love God and love others, all other things will fall into their place.. JESUS CHRIST IS THE MASTER KEY AND NOT PRAYER ALONE. Prayer still will only work for you if you have no unconfessed major sins in your life.
