ONE OF MY OWN FAVORITE EXPRESSION IS THAT “THERE IS  NO SUCH THING AS BEING A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/02/divorce-and-remarriage-in-the-christian-church/

.

Fornication, Adultery, Marital failures, and many other destructive conditions, exist because of sin.  They also do exist because humans have decided that their way is better than God’s way.  They have decided that fulfilling their desires is more important than obeying and glorifying the Creator/Sustainer of the universe.  Nevertheless, all persons must  learn what the Bible says about sin, adultery in order to see it the way God sees it.  Only when we change our views to line up with God’s views can we live the full, blessed life He has waiting for us. Personal Sins of commission are also  often the result of One’s sins of omission, even the sin of presumption.

Psalms 32:3, “When I refused to confess my sin, I was weak and miserable, and I groaned all day long.” (NLT)

.

Proverbs 28:13, “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.”

.

Psalms 38:3-8, “…Neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin. For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as a heavy burden they are too heavy for me. My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness. I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.”

.

To repent means to turn from or change your mind about something. We need to change our mind about our sin and forsake it. We need to confess it as sin, and ask God’s forgiveness for our failure, and we will be forgiven. God’s Word promises that when we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us of whatever we’ve done that was wrong. In other words, regardless of what you’ve done, if you will give it to the Lord, confess and forsake it, you can receive mercy.

Psalms 32:5-8, “Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide them. I said to myself, ‘I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.’ And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone. Therefore, let all the godly confess their rebellion to you while there is time, that they may not drown in the floodwaters of judgment. For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble.You surround me with songs of victory. The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” (NLT)

Psalm 51
1    Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
2    Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
3    For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
4    Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
5    Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6    Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
7    Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8    Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
9    Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
10    Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11    Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
12    Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
13    Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
14    Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
15    O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
16    For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
17    The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
18    Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
19    Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). The faithful are to bring their sins to God in repentance and receive cleansing and forgiveness. God’s forgiveness does not necessarily mean that next there is no negative consequences as King David and Apostle Paul found it, not all sins are teat as equal as well, the longer it takes for one to admit their sins, the more severe the negative consequences too.. The mere act of confessing our sins does not get us forgiveness. You may falsely refuse to repent, feel that you can flirt with sin and get away with it. But God’s love demands fatherly chastisement. If you persist in your own way, God will send his judgment.
.

But the fact is that God does not cancel out all the consequences of sin. This truth is nowhere better illustrated than in the alter incidents of David’s life. The whole story of the rebellion of David’s son Absalom (2 Samuel 13-19) is an example. The judgment which God pronounced on David and his family because of his sin with Bathsheba is recorded in 2 Samuel 12:10-12. “Now, therefore, the sword shall never depart from thine house, because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah, the Hittite, to be thy wife. Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbor, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. For thou didst it secretly; but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.” A study of the context of these verses reveals that immediately after this, David confessed and was assured by the prophet Nathan that he had forgiveness. Nevertheless, the events that God had spoken of in His words of judgment fell exactly as He had said. God he restores the fellowship, but He does not always eliminate all the natural consequences of our rebellion.

Believe it or not when you sin deliberately and do not admit it, stop the sin even, there is still a price to pay.. even now especially for adultery… divorce… One of the undeniable punishment is that your sin is shouted from the Housetops..

.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’  But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:27-28).  This tells us that adultery can take place within the heart [mind] and is just as sinful as an outward act.  The sin of the mind may not affect as many other people, families, and friends as the outward physical act, but it is still a sinful affront to the holiness of God.  This applies to the prevalence of Porno.  Often claimed to be a ‘victimless offense’, the damage pornography does to the heart of the one involved in it, and often to those around him/her, can be just as devastating.  Pornography and adultery often go hand in hand. Divorce and adultery are also actually God’s undeniable punishment for those looking at Porno. I have often noticed Christians persons who admit to looking at porno get divorced next.
.

Even sexual sin is a serious offence to God.. It has repercussions even on all.. Study the life of King David.. as God does not change.. I know first hand cause I am pastor for 30 years and a Christian for  50 years and God has personally talked to me about it many times too.. the consequences of even sexual sins still exist.. God is not mocked what a person sows he reaps is a new testament verse.. Pastors have been divorced, kicked out of their churches, committed suicide because of this too.. Sexual sins are common even in the ministry but not without consequences.. Look at Jim Baker, Jimmy Swaggart  and many others who have face their exposure and punishments.  Sexual sins  is arrogance. Sexual abuse and sexual harassment are also two of the ways people abuse their power.  And sin is sequential. Sin “happens,” but it seldom “just happens.” Sin does not come out of nowhere. We see this sequence in the Book of James:

13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. 14 But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. 15 Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death (James 1:13-15).

Even King David’s sin did not just suddenly appear in a moment of time. David set himself up for this fall. We all do need the continual disciplined life which causes us to bring our bodies under our control (see 1 Corinthians 9:24-27). We may weary of taking up our cross and begin to take up ourselves as our highest cause.  When we retreat from theGods instructions , a fall is not far away.

Ezekiel 3:18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.  19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

2 Samuel 4:11 How much more, when wicked men have slain a righteous person in his own house upon his bed? shall I not therefore now require his blood of your hand, and take you away from the earth?

We may also keep quiet, rather than bear witness to our faith, lest we be rejected by our peers. We may hold off from rebuking a fellow-believer, who is falling into sin, because the last time we tried it was very messy.  We still will also face Consequencxes for this too..

I know firsthand many many people who married People out of the will of God next had suffered for it..

Matthew 5 27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Matthew 19 9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

Mark 10 11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

James 2 11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

2 Peter 2 14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:

One if the biggest mistake many people make is that they   falsely think or they believe  that because some time has passed God has overlooked their past sins, when this is not so.. if we confess ours ins he will forgive us..

Eternity is a term used to express the concept of something that has no end and/or no beginning. God has no beginning or end. He is outside the realm of time,   so next many people face negative consequences from God because of their sins even Adam and Eve,  Eli the Priest,  King Saul, King David, Samson, and the  account of the sudden deaths of Ananias (Hebrew, “the Lord is gracious”) and Sapphira (Aramaic, “beautiful”) makes us face the fact that God often deals with unrepentant   sins of even Christians how and when he chooses too.

This narrative Ananias  and Sapphira is really bad news,   for any who would take a casual approach to entering the kingdom of God and continues in sins .

“ Ananias and his wife Sapphira sold real estate ( ), brought and placed money at the apostles’ feet. This action paralleled Barnabas’s (4:37), with one significant difference. In collusion with his wife, Ananias kept back part of the money for himself. Literally, he embezzled from the sale price. Apostle Peter exposes the fraud. He knows the truth,  . By asking Ananias why Satan has filled his heart for the purpose of lying to the Holy Spirit and embezzlement, Peter exposes the spiritual battle that is raging (compare Lk 4:1-13). Satan now attacks Christ’s mission from within as he had done through Judas and Peter (Lk 22:3, 31). The “father of lies” (Jn 8:44) starts in the heart, the source of all decisions concerning possessions and their relation to God (Lk 12:34; 16:14-15; Acts 8:21-22; contrast 2:46; 4:32). Ananias shows not simply a lack of honesty in bringing only a part of the sale price but also a lack of integrity–bringing only a part while pretending to bring the whole .Apostle Peter now exposes Ananias’s full responsibility: he had full control over the property before it was sold, and over the sale price before he contributed any portion to the common fund (5:4). This statement can help us understand the arrangements of having all things in common (2:44; 4:32) and the practice of selling property and bringing the proceeds to the apostles as a contribution to a fund for the poor (4:34-37; compare 2:45), for it shows the voluntary, even periodic nature of the process. Peter again asks the piercing question “Why?” This sin, like all sin, is finally not against human beings but against God.But sin blinds us to the true nature of the offense: that our sin is against God. Sin also blinds us so that we choose short-term gains in this life, heedless of the long-term loss in the next (Lk 9:24-25). For Ananias it was the possibility of being praised for his generosity while keeping his secure nest egg . As Ananias listens to the  expose  suddenly he falls down and dies (exepsyxen, used primarily in accounts of death as a result of divine judgment–Acts 5:10; 12:23; Judg 4:21). God, the knower of all hearts, has assessed Ananias’s unrepentant heart and immediately judged him for his sin. The punishments for partaking of the priestly tithe while ritually unclean and the strange fire of Nadab and Abihu are the closest parallels (Lev 10:1-7; 22:9;  ). No wonder great fear comes upon the Jewish Christian bystanders (compare Acts 5:11; 19:17).  hree hours later Sapphira arrives. Luke, given his mention of her ignorance, probably intends us to understand Peter’s question to be about the agreed-upon false price, not the true price. Either way, his inquiry gives her an opportunity to confess or persist in her sin (compare Lk 22:48). In response, Peter again uses the penetrating “why” question.   He reveals his knowledge of the crime and points out its implications for their covenant relationship with God. In the wilderness the Israelites through their unbelief and murmuring against God were actually putting him to the test to see if he would indeed punish sin. At Kadesh Barnea they discovered that he does (Num 14:20-23; Ps 95:7-11; compare Deut 6:16). So Ananias and Sapphira learn that in this life God can, and when he chooses will, punish sinners either by immediate death or by some other means. This can happen to those who claim to be, and may truly be, a part of his covenant people, enjoy his salvation blessings and yet deliberately sin and remain unrepentant (1 Cor 5:5; 1 Jn 5:16-17). For Christians today this is still a temptation: to so luxuriate in the love and grace of God that we do not take seriously the consequences of our deliberate sinning. But God will not be mocked (Gal 6:7-8). Peter declares that the young men who buried Sapphira’s husband (the feet of points to their function as transporters of the dead) are at the door and will soon carry out another corpse. Thus Sapphira too experiences divine judgment by immediate death, and the believers again respond with dishonorable burial.

The message of this for Christian and non-Christian alike is self-evident. Christians must realize that the selfless, transparent fellowship of the church must never be violated by selfish hypocrisy. Further, it is proper to employ discipline to guard the church’s integrity, unity and purity. For the non-Christian, this account is a warning: Think twice before joining this holy fellowship. Are you willing to pay the price–fully renouncing wicked ways and full-heartedly embracing Christ and other believers in his body, the church? ”

God is not mocked what a person sows he reaps is a new testament verse.. Pastors have been divorced, kicked out of their churches, committed suicide because of this too.. Sexual sins are common even in the ministry but not without consequences.. Look at Jim Baker, Jimmy Swaggart  and many others who have face their exposure and punishments.  Willful sins have still severe consequences.. especially  for all Pastors…

To contend that God will tolerate the violation of His marriage law today, simply because he did in the past, is to fly directly in the face of Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 19:8-9. Yes, Moses allowed divorce for trivial causes because of Israel’s hardness of heart. Yet Christ said, “but from the beginning it hath not been so.”

David tried to cover up their affair after Bathsheba became pregnant, and Bathsheba and David’s Adultery Led Him David to Greater Sins …The Fruit of David’s Sin

It is truly remarkable that some could seemingly suggest that God  virtually “looked the other way” with reference to David’s transgression, hence, will do so today. How desperate is the case of those who are obliged to defend their teaching by an example of which the Bible says: “the thing that David had done displeased God” (2 Sam. 11:27).

The aftermath of this sordid affair is evidence aplenty of the Lord’s abiding displeasure of it. The prophet Nathan was sent unto David. After telling the parable of the pirated ewe lamb, the fearless spokesman for God made application to the king: “Thou art the man.” He then boldly asked: “Why have you despised the word of God, to do what is evil in his sight?” (2 Sam. 12:9). A heavy penalty was about to be exacted.

And Nathan said to David, “The Lord also has put away your sin; you shall not die. However, because by this deed you have given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme, the child also who is born to you shall surely die.”

It is very clear in Samuel that the tragedies which take place in David’s household are the consequence of his sin, just as Nathan indicates (12:10-12). Thus, when Amnon rapes Tamar, the sister of Absalom, it is a case of the “chickens coming home to roost.” Note that it is at David’s command or summons that Tamar is called to the palace, and then to Amnon’s bedside. There is not so much as a hint that when Tamar is raped, it is all of Amnon’s doing. Should this not strongly indicate that the same is true in Bathsheba’s case, of which this second incident is a kind of mirror image?

First, David had taken Uriah’s wife and had him slain by the sword of the Ammonites; so, the sword was never to depart from his house. The fulfillment of this punishment is a matter of historical record.

Amnon, David’s eldest son by Ahinoam (1 Chron. 3:1), raped his half-sister, Tamar. Two years afterward, Absalom, the king’s son by Maacah (2 Sam. 3:3), had Amnon murdered (2 Sam. 13). Then, later, Absalom “stole the hearts of the men of Israel,” rebelled against his father, and was ultimately killed by Joab (2 Sam. 18). And even after David’s death, Adonijah, the king’s son by Haggith (2 Sam. 3:4), was slain by Solomon (1 Kgs. 2:24-25). A truly bloody price was paid for David’s lust and violence.

Second, David secretly fornicated with his warrior’s wife while the latter was engaged in defense of the nation. And so, God  declared:

“I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house; and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbor, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun” (2 Sam. 12:11-12).

Some years later, Absalom openly rebelled against his father. David, upon hearing that the hearts of the men of Israel were in favor of Absalom, fled Jerusalem, leaving ten of his concubines behind to keep the palace (2 Sam. 15:16). When Absalom entered Jerusalem, upon the advice of Ahithophel (Bathsheba’s grandfather – 2 Sam. 11:3; 23:34), the young rebel pitched a tent upon the palace roof (the very place where David had first observed Bathsheba) and “went in unto his father’s concubines in the sight of all Israel” (2 Sam. 16:22).

Third, Nathan informed David that since this deed had “given great occasion to the enemies of Jehovah to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die” (2 Sam. 12:14). Though we will briefly comment on this later, it will be sufficient to note here, with Edersheim, that the baby’s death was “for David’s sake, that he might not enjoy the fruit of sin” (p. 196).

How strange that this case is cited in support of the modern theory which alleges that adulterers should be allowed, with impunity, to enjoy the fruit of their sin.

Finally, it is not without significance that the apostle Matthew, centuries later, in listing the legal genealogy of Christ from Abraham downward, records by inspiration: “And David begat Solomon of her of Uriah” (Mt. 1:6).

The Greek text literally says ek tes tou Ouriou, i.e., “of [the her belonging to] Uriah.” Lenski comments:

“The simple way in which Matthew connects Israel’s two greatest kings is telling to the highest degree. Behind the little phrase lies adultery and murder and the death of the first child. And this woman, though unnamed, was a queen; rightfully she belonged to Uriah” (p. 29).

The thrust of this particular point is this: even in the dimness of pre-Christian antiquity, there were sometimes lifelong penalties attached to sins. God did not simply overlook the sin of David and accept the penitent king as he was. There was a price to be paid.

Even so today, frequently there are agonizing consequences that result from illicit relationships.

In Romans 3:25, it is argued by some  that due to God’s forbearance (anoche, “clemency, tolerance” ), sins committed aforetime   previously were passed over. This, of course, does not mean that God  ignored those sins; rather, the “passing over” (paresis) means “letting go unpunished” , and it is used of the “temporary suspension of punishment or at some later date   inflicted”

And the Lord Jesus, speaking in anticipation of the New Covenant, pronounces still that the   marriage-divorce law of Christ, therefore, is still this: “Whosoever shall put away his wife, except for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and he that marrieth her when she is put away committeth adultery” (Mt. 19:9; cf. 5:32).

This is the simple and strict will of Christ, and neither the case of David and Bathsheba, nor any other alleged biblical circumstance, can vitiate this strong teaching which so wonderfully undergirds the home, the foundation of society.

We must never allow emotionally wrought situations to sway us from the plain teaching of the truth of God. Our contemporaries deserve better from us than that.

God is not mocked what a person sows he reaps is a new testament verse.. Pastors have been divorced, kicked out of their churches, committed suicide because of this too.. Sexual sins are common even in the ministry but not without consequences.. Look at Jim Baker, Jimmy Swaggart  and many others who have face their exposure and punishments.  Willful sins have still severe consequences.. especially  for all Pastors…

God kills Eli’s sons too for their sexual sins- and punished he whole family too.. There was an old priest name Eli, who had two sons, Hophni and Phinehas. Like Eli, his sons were priests, but they were bad priests who didn’t know God, stole meat from burnt offerings, and had sex with women at the door of the tabernacle. The sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD. 1 Samuel 2.12 1 Samuel 2 22 Now Eli was very old, and heard all that his sons did unto all Israel; and how they lay with the women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 22 Now Eli was very old, and heard all that his sons did unto all Israel; and how they lay with the women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.23 And he said unto them, Why do ye such things? for I hear of your evil dealings by all this people.24 Nay, my sons; for it is no good report that I hear: ye make the LORD’S people to transgress.25 If one man sin against another, the judge shall judge him: but if a man sin against the LORD, who shall intreat for him? Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto the voice of their father, because the LORD would slay them.26 And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the LORD, and also with men. 27 And there came a man of God unto Eli, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Did I plainly appear unto the house of thy father, when they were in Egypt in Pharaoh’s house?28 And did I choose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to offer upon mine altar, to burn incense, to wear an ephod before me? and did I give unto the house of thy father all the offerings made by fire of the children of Israel?29 Wherefore kick ye at my sacrifice and at mine offering, which I have commanded in my habitation; and honourest thy sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the chiefest of all the offerings of Israel my people?30 Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.31 Behold, the days come, that I will cut off thine arm, and the arm of thy father’s house, that there shall not be an old man in thine house.32 And thou shalt see an enemy in my habitation, in all the wealth which God shall give Israel: and there shall not be an old man in thine house for ever.33 And the man of thine, whom I shall not cut off from mine altar, shall be to consume thine eyes, and to grieve thine heart: and all the increase of thine house shall die in the flower of their age.34 And this shall be a sign unto thee, that shall come upon thy two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas; in one day they shall die both of them.35 And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed for ever.36 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left in thine house shall come and crouch to him for a piece of silver and a morsel of bread, and shall say, Put me, I pray thee, into one of the priests’ offices, that I may eat a piece of bread.   Eli … heard all that his sons did … how they lay with the women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. and yet  he did nothing about it too..

Before killing Eli’s sons, though, God tormented Eli a bit. First, a “man of God” tells Eli that God will “consume his eyes” and “grieve his heart” and make sure that all of his descendants will die young. A man of God … said unto him, Thus saith the LORD … I will cut off thine arm… There shall not be an old man in thine house for ever … I shall … consume thine eyes and … grieve thine heart. 2.27-33 Then, just in case the first message didn’t get through, God sends another one to Eli through the boy prophet, Samuel. It takes God three tries to deliver the message, but he finally does. And it’s the same nasty message: God will make everyone’s ears tingle by punishing all of Eli’s unborn descendants for the sins of his sons. The LORD said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle. I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken … I will judge his house for ever … because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not. 3.11-13 Samuel delivers the message to Eli and he responds the way believers always do. (God can do whatever he wants — however absurd, cruel, or unjust — and they will call it good.) It is the LORD: let him do what seemeth him good. 3.18 So now God had to figure out how he was going to kill Eli’s sons. And that’s where the Philistines came in. God used them to kill Eli’s sons, along with a 34,000 Israelite soldiers.

In the first battle, the Israelites lost 4000 men.

The Philistines put themselves in array against Israel: and when they joined battle, Israel was smitten before the Philistines: and they slew of the army in the field about four thousand men. 4.2 Which surprised the heck out of the Israelites, since God was supposed to be on their side.

So they went to get the ark of the covenant, figuring it would protect them from the Philistines.

When the people were come into the camp, the elders of Israel said, Wherefore hath the LORD smitten us to day before the Philistines? Let us fetch the ark of the covenant of … that … it may save us out of the hand of our enemies. 4.3 Along with the ark, they also got Eli’s sons, Hophni and Phinehas.

So the people sent to Shiloh, that they might bring from thence the ark of the covenant of the LORD … and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God. 4.4 When the ark came to the Israelites’ camp, they all shouted at once, causing an earthquake.

When the ark of the covenant of the LORD came into the camp, all Israel shouted with a great shout, so that the earth rang again. 4.5 The earth shook so much that the Philistines felt it at their camp, and they knew just what it meant. God was with the Israelites and he was on their side.

The Philistines were afraid, for they said, God is come into the camp. And they said, Woe unto us! for there hath not been such a thing heretofore. 4.7 The Philistines had heard what God did to the Egyptians and they were afraid that now he’d do it to them. So they all said together: “Woe is us.”

Woe unto us! who shall deliver us out of the hand of these mighty Gods? these are the Gods that smote the Egyptians with all the plagues in the wilderness. 4.8 Then they snapped out of it and started to act like Philistines, and killed another 30,000 Israelites.

The Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man into his tent: and there was a very great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen. 4.10 And, in the process, they also killed Eli’s sons.

The ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain. 4.11 Just as God said he would do in 1 Samuel 2.25 (I gave God credit for 34,002, 34,000 Israelite soldiers and Eli’s two sons: Hophni and Phinehas.)

1 Samuel 4:12 And there ran a man of Benjamin out of the army, and came to Shiloh the same day with his clothes rent, and with earth upon his head.13 And when he came, lo, Eli sat upon a seat by the wayside watching: for his heart trembled for the ark of God. And when the man came into the city, and told it, all the city cried out.14 And when Eli heard the noise of the crying, he said, What meaneth the noise of this tumult? And the man came in hastily, and told Eli.15 Now Eli was ninety and eight years old; and his eyes were dim, that he could not see.16 And the man said unto Eli, I am he that came out of the army, and I fled to day out of the army. And he said, What is there done, my son?17 And the messenger answered and said, Israel is fled before the Philistines, and there hath been also a great slaughter among the people, and thy two sons also, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God is taken.18 And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck brake, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years. 19 And his daughter in law, Phinehas’ wife, was with child, near to be delivered: and when she heard the tidings that the ark of God was taken, and that her father in law and her husband were dead, she bowed herself and travailed; for her pains came upon her.20 And about the time of her death the women that stood by her said unto her, Fear not; for thou hast born a son. But she answered not, neither did she regard it. 21 And she named the child I-chabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband.22 And she said, The glory is departed from Israel: for the ark of God is taken.

Fornication, Adultery is still a Sin against God and One’s Spouse it involves stealing that which does not belong to you firstly.

One of the most Common way I can spot false Messianic Jews, non Christian Jews,  posts is their  comment of the need to be one.. to love God and to love one another..

Neglecting the  fact that we also do have to hold all of God’s truth..  even this… “:Instead of joining with unbelievers in a false unity for the so called sake of the world, we need to reject the ecumenical movement, come out from among them, and share the gospel with the lost, including the religious lost.  2 Corinthians 6:14,17 & 5:20 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.  For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness?  And what communion has light with darkness?, Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord.  Do no touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.”  & Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us:  we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.  The unity that believers share with their Savior Jesus Christ and the Father in heaven, and the unity that they have with one another through the love of the Spirit is matchless, and we can disdain and reject the false unity striven for by the ecumenical movement which is driven by the devil.”  https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-lies-of-the-false-Christian-Zionism-Movement/166907416793938

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” (1 John 5:11-12)

“And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.” (1 John 5:20)

“Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press. And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee. And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.” (Luke 8:19-21)

Now for 2000 years the Catholic Church has not denied that man is sinful, Jesus is our Savior and lord, God nor have they denied the Trinity with Holy Spirit now as well.. but they need to remind themselves of the sinful part.. their other false teachings..

It is rather interesting that the false Roman Catholic doctrines regarding Mary mimics actual truth regarding Jesus Christ.

The Bible warns us about the “doctrines (teachings) of Devils (demons) that would enter the church in the last days, and the Catholic doctrines regarding Mary are also absolutely included here.

(1 Timothy 4:1) Satan is a great deceiver and his goal is to deceive your soul right into an eternal Hell!

The Roman Catholic teaching known as The Immaculate Conception (Mary being conceived without sin) is a DEMONIC IMITATION of the sinlessness of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

The Roman Catholic teaching of The Assumption (Mary was raised into heaven without dying) is a DEMONIC IMITATION of the actual ascension of Jesus Christ into heaven. (Luke 24:50-53, Acts 1:8-11)

The Roman Catholic teaching of Mary being the Queen of Heaven is a DEMONIC IMITATION of Jesus Christ being the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! (Deuteronomy 10:17, Psalm 136:3, 1 Timothy 6:15, Revelation 17:14, 19:16)

The Roman Catholic teaching of Mary as a mediator (mediatrix) is a DEMONIC IMITATION of Jesus Christ being the one and only mediator for mankind! (1 Timothy 2:5)

It’s undeniable that most preachers today do not live by faith in God to provide their needs, their  faith wrongfully  is in people to do it.

The person Who trusts God in all things will be blessed by God in all things
.
Rev GEORGE MUELLER OF BRISTOL- Rev George Mueller and his method of financial collections
.
(1 Thess 2:2 KJV) But even after that we had suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention. 3 For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile: 4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. 5 For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloak of covetousness; God is witness: 6 Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ. 7 But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:
.
A TRUE  Faith Ministry, trusts in God to supply all of the needs , and not rather being weak in the faith, by starting a tax exempt and a marketing commercial Corporation, even selling Books, tapes, video and things, aalso now openly begging, begging, begging OTHERS FOR MONEY.. with false posts like like this.. ” I have incorporated as a nonprofit under the name “A Christian Ministries, Inc.” This is a pretty hefty step for me. It takes what has been a full time hobby and gives it legs to maybe be a full time full time endeavor into the future. Ultimately, the goal is for ACM to be self-sufficient, paying for itself off of book sales and products sold to churches, etc. At this time, however, donations are helpful. If that is of interests you, you may use the Paypal/credit card link on the ACM web page. “
.
“I rightfully still do not endorse any Christians adds, anyone, any person, any organization, any Church now trying to make any money from the gospel, or begging, asking for money or even any of the adds here. I also do not endorse any of Bibles, books, tapes listed here for sale too. Jesus said as we have freely received so we are freely to give. Hirelings in their greed and visible lack of faith don’t do that. I do believe we should have the faith for God to supply what anyone needs freely to anyone who needs it. “Rev George Muellar did.”
.
Faith Ministries and the EXAMPLE OF Rev George Mueller
.
The proper Christian Example- “No More Rich Seat/Poor Seat . George became the pastor of a small church in England. The church wanted to pay him a good salary from the money it received renting pews to rich church members who sat at the front of the church. (Poor members had to sit in the “cheap” seats in the back.) George told them that this had to stop if they wanted him to be their pastor. Even so, he did not allow the church to pay him a salary. He trusted God to meet his needs, and God did. George and his family never missed a meal and were always able to pay their rent. George began to sense, however, that God had something else for him to do. Praying Food into the Home. Each day as George walked the streets, he saw children everywhere who had no mom or dad. They lived on the streets or in state-run poorhouses, where they were treated badly. George felt God calling him to open an orphanage to take care of the children. George prayed, asking God to provide a building, people to oversee it, furniture, and money for food and clothing. God answered his prayers. The needs of the orphanage were met each day. Sometimes a wealthy person would send a large amount of money, or a child would give a small amount received as a gift or for doing chores. Many times food, supplies or money came at the last minute, but God always provided without George telling anyone about his needs. He just prayed and waited on God.. More than 10,000 children lived in the orphanage over the years. When each child became old enough to live on his own, George would pray with him and put a Bible in his right hand and a coin in his left. He explained to the young person that if he held onto what was in his right hand, God would always make sure there was something in his left hand as well.
.
Do you see any similarities between George Mueller’s and the Apostle Paul’s decisions to follow Jesus?
.
How did George change after he became a follower of Jesus?
.
What did Mueller mean when he told the orphans to “hold onto the Bible in your right hand”?
.
Describe a time when God has answered your prayers and provided for you or your family.
.
Do you live by faith in God, to provide your needs, or do you rely on others, your job, your own efforts still? “
( Ironically many of his present supporters beg for money, sell his Books also to make money, instead of praying.
.
“HOW TO ASCERTAIN THE WILL OF GOD
1. I seek at the beginning to get my heart into such a state that it has no will of its own in regard to a given matter. Nine-tenths of the trouble with people generally is just here. Nine-tenths of the difficulties are overcome when our hearts are ready to do the LORD’s will, whatever it may be. When one is truly in this state, it is usually but a little way to the knowledge of what His will is.
.
2. Having done this, I do not leave the result to feeling or simple impression. If so, I make myself liable to great delusions.
.
3. I seek the Will of the Spirit of God through, or in connection with, the Word of God. The Spirit and the Word must be combined. If I look to the Spirit alone without the Word, I lay myself open to great delusions also. If the Holy Ghost guides us at all, He will do it according to the Scriptures and never contrary to them.”
George Mueller 1805-1898 – from the classic biography of George Mueller, “George Müller of Bristol,” — by A. T. Pierson 
.
(Luke 14:26 KJV) If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
.
(Luke 14:33 KJV) So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
.
Rev George Muller, famous founder of the Bristol orphanage, was one of the best-known early Plymouth Brethren figures . Mr. Muller also had a public falling-out with Darby. Those who sympathized with Darby became the “Closed Brethren” and those who sided with Muller were known as “Open Brethren.” The two strains of Brethrenism endure even today. A It was Rev George Mueller who had introduced D L Moody to the Plymouth Brethren, and it seems when George Muller of Bristol came up against the Dispensationalist doctrines of the Brethren movement, he severed all connection with it.
.
All pastors, they can merely live by faith in God to provide and now discontinue from giving out tax receipts on all donations and thus be free to speak as any ordinary citizen can. The Bible does not prohibit them from doing this now as well like Rev George Mueller did too.
.
Among the greatest monuments of what can be accomplished through simple faith in God are the great orphanages covering thirteen acres of ground on Ashley Downs, Bristol, England. When God put it into the heart of George Muller to build these orphanages, he had only two shillings (50 cents) in his pocket. Without making his wants known to any man, but to God alone, over a million, four hundred thousand pounds ($7,000,000) were sent to him for the building and maintaining of these orphan homes. When the writer first visited them, near the time of Mr. Muller’s death, there were five immense buildings of solid granite, capable of accommodating two thousand orphans. In all the years since the first orphans arrived the Lord had sent food in due time, so that they had never missed a meal for want of food. 
.
At the age of seventy, Mr. Muller began to make great evangelistic tours. He traveled 200,000 miles, going around the world and preaching in many lands and in several different languages. He frequently spoke to as many as 4,500 or 5,000 persons. Three times he preached throughout the length and breadth of the United States. He continued his missionary or evangelistic tours until he was ninety years of age. He estimated that during these seventeen years of evangelistic work he addressed three million people. All his expenses were sent in answer to the prayer of faith.

The Christian population is still dropping in Israel, Palestinian territories.. Christians make up only 1% of the population in the Palestinian territories today, down from 2% in 2000, and that is what Israel wants.. the disappearance of the Christian population is  a “social disaster.” The steady emigration of Christians  in Israel and the Palestinian territories is Not God’s will.. 

“ Christians are to be troubled when injustice is committed. We are especially troubled when it is perpetuated through the appropriation of Christian theology for ideological purposes.” Especially if it  is the Christian Zionism now as it leads  to the dehumanization of Israelis and Palestinians.,  is not based on traditional teaching or doctrines of the Church.,  fosters fear and hatred of Muslims and non-western Christians, it is a movement with negative consequences for Middle East peace and the  world. Many Christians even the evangelicals ones do not want to be identified as ideological Christian Zionists  as it contradicts the central commitments of Christianity to justice and peace-making. Many rightfully do question its false  theological assumptions.

James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

“An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule by their own power; And my people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?” (Jeremiah 5:30-31).

“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek” (Romans 1:16).

 Rev John Hagee ’s web site tells us that his “vision is for world evangelism. The burning passion of his heart is to win the lost to Jesus Christ in America and around the world.” That statement is not altogether true since he will not evangelize Jews and teaches salvation on another basis than the Gospel for the Jewish people. Interesting that the Apostles of Jesus did not preach this falsehood. Paul said that the wrath of God had come on Israel to the uttermost because they had rejected Jesus and the complete gospel of salvation (1 Thes 2:16).

 Rev John Hagee who is the Pastor  who left his wife and two small children and and married a women in his congregation on top of all that has no problem with Supporting solely the Jews to Live in Israel and Palestine.. He did this while was preaching  to others that  “Christians  don’t steal or lie,  they don’t get divorced or have abortions.”   John Hagee was once  the leader of the charismatic Trinity Church in 1975 and was the father of two children. John Hagee had an adulterous affair with a woman and admitted to immorality in front of his church. Pastor John Hagee then divorced the mother of his two children and married a younger woman (Diana Castro, now Diana Hagee) from that same congregation. Pastor John Hagee   abused his position of trust and power to take to  cheat on his wife. John Hagee married the woman he cheated on his wife with and immediately became the pastor of another congregation- the Cornerstone Church in San Antonio Texas.  Rev John Hagee   was kicked out as a minister with the Assembly of God organization for his admitted adultery.  Needless to say his false supporters can find their own false justifications for this..

The same John Hagee who  had said “All hurricanes are acts of God because God controls the heavens. I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God and they were recipients of the judgment of God for that.”   But do first note that Jesus Christ who is God had himself had rebuked the winds and the waves.. Matthew 8:27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him! Luke 8: 25 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.

“I’m delighted to present my latest book, In Defense Of Israel. This book will expose the sins of the fathers and the vicious abuse of the Jewish people. In Defense Of Israel will shake Christian Theology. It scripturally proves that the Jewish people as a whole did not reject Jesus as Messiah. It will also prove that Jesus did not come to earth to be the Messiah. It will prove that there was a Calvary Conspiracy between Rome, the High Priest and Herod to execute Jesus as an insurrectionist too dangerous to live. Since Jesus refused by word and deed to claim to be the Messiah, how can the Jews be blamed for rejecting what was never offered?” Rev John Hagee.  Any New Testament Bible literate persons knows this is falsehoods, rubbish . Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Messiah (Christ)? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son (1 John 2:22).

The same Rev John Hagee dumps all Christians into one great anti-Semitic slop-jar and accuses them all falsely of being Jew haters. He falsely claims the origin of anti-Semitism was begun by early Christians and we assume by this he means by Jesus, the Apostles, and early Believers. The same John Hagee that had created and distributed a commercial featuring him attacking the Catholic Church for helping plan the murder of Jesus but don’t ask me how this happened, considering that the Catholic Church wasn’t founded till much later after the Jews undeniably killed Jesus Christ. He falsely preaches that by giving large sums of money to the Jews and falsely even denying Jesus is the Messiah, any Gentile  can find  salvation and greater favor with God and modern Israelites.  For him falsely Calvary plus friendship with the still antichrist Jews = salvation. 

How could any true Christian now who confesses that the lord Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, belong to this Messiah rejecting organization, say that Jesus was not the Messiah of Israel or that Jesus was a Messiah but not the one for the Jewish people.  He was a Messiah only for non-Jews.? They cannot. “Every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ (Messiah) is come in the flesh is not of God” (1John 4:3a).

“This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ (Messiah); not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth” (1John 5:6).

John Hagee is not of God, never was of God, is not a true man of God, is not a real Minister of the Gospel of Christ (Messiah).

The same  John Hagee gets now in return for his heretical ministry a $2.1 million dollar 7,969 acre ranch with not one, but FIVE lodges, a managers house, a gun locker, a smoke house, a skeet range and three barns. In the year 2001, John Hagee received $842,000 in salary and $414,485 in benefits making him one of the best paid Pastor. He certainly is trying to get all the rewards on earth very much unlike Jesus Christ and the Apostles too.

There is still no New Testament substantiation, or predict diction, prophecy that Israel would have their promised land returned after the Jews being evicted by the Romans from Israel. in the whole new Testament..  yet Rev Pat Robertson was telling John Kerry that pursuing peace strategies in the Middle East is “asking for the wrath of Almighty God to fall on this nation” because “any deal that includes territorial concessions to the Palestinians, including Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem, will lead to divine retribution and ‘catastrophic’ consequences”  and yet there is absolutely no such Biblical references in the whole New testament.. If you think he is smart by saying so, please indicate the verse to us all..

The term  “Jewish People” is a political construct, an invention. for most Jews are still not even not religious or  Zionists.Very  few Jews are  Zionists  Besides  the majority of Jews, including many Zionists, have not the slightest intention of going “back” to the Holy Land, much preferring,   to stay put in the USA, north London, or Brooklyn or wherever.. The “Land of Israel” is barely mentioned in the Old Testament: the more common expression is the Land of Canaan. When it is mentioned, it does not include Jerusalem, Hebron, or Bethlehem. Biblical “Israel” is only northern Israel (Samaria) and there never was a united kingdom including both ancient Judea and Samaria.  Even In traditional Judaism there is no injunction to “return” to the “land of Israel”. The ritual “next year in Jerusalem” that is part of the Passover Seder prayer was never a call to action, or to reconstitute a state

The New Testament of Jesus Christ has superseded the Old testament for the Jews. We all as should take issue with any  idea that we will reap some sort of damnation from God if we help a war-torn area achieve peace.  A two-state solution would save thousands of lives and bring peace to an area wrought with suffering — it’s time to waive the  true interpretation of the  Bible around, as it’s always time to save lives.

Most Americans also still do not go along with Pat Robertson’s views,  Or John Hagee’s according to the Public Religion Research Institute, a  majority (53%) of American Jews say that, generally speaking, they would support the establishment of a Palestinian state, overcoming  out the 42% who say they would be opposed. Additionally, a poll by the U.S. State Department indicates that 74% of Israelis believe a peace agreement that leads to both states “living side by side as good neighbors” to be “essential or desirable.”;  

Recent Opinion polls of Israelis, Palestinians and Americans still have rightfully found a majority  support for a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Even most Jewish Americans continue to support “assertive American leadership to achieve a two-state solution.”  as  72 percent of American Jews agree that a two-state solution is an important national security interest for the United States. Even the Jewish  “attitudes toward settlements are highly negative,” and “by a 60 to 40 percent margin, American Jews oppose the expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.”  Peace everywhere is what everyone rightfully desires rather. and not more Jewish or Muslim wars..

It should be evident to many people that too many even Jewish persons, Messianic Jews included now too,  still do cut and paste, chose Bible verse they like and cut out , they falsely do reject the ones they do not like, misunderstand and/or try to rewrite the Bible to suit their own liking, they have re-interpret Bible verses for their own purposes, as they now are false revisionists. The supreme New Testament has replaced the Old Testament and the New Testament clarifies what is no longer applicable in the old Testament, all Judaism included.
.
Heaven awaits the Jewish return TO God, Jesus Christ, and rather NOT TO THE PROMISED EARTHLY LAND“ Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me“ Exodus 20:5
.
GOD NOT ONLY KICKED THE JEWS OUT OF ISRAEL IN 70 AD.. BUT BECAUSE OF JESUS CHRIST HE CHANGED THE WORLD’S CALENDAR, PROCLAIMING HIS NEW ERA AND TODAY IS 2012 AD, AFTER THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST
.
Lasting peace unity for all Jews can only occur by all accepting our God Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, and to Love God, love others, be not drunk with wine, be filled with the Holy Spirit, do not lie or steal.. or slander, abuse others..
.
All National Jews will always be far from any right to the promise land because of all their own unrepentant SINS, ACTS, even the blood shed of many others that they have killed from generations to generation even the shed blood of Jesus. (Mat 23:38 KJV) Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. The Jews alone have by their return to Israel have usurped the authority of the Lord God of Hosts Himself, who alone has the right to give and take away the land of Israel as so far there is no New testament word confirming any of it’s return.. …the Land belongs now to Jesus Christ alone and his bride the Church… it is all his, he had undeniably bought it with his life and redeemed it alone!
.
Can anyone do or say anything that disagrees with mighty Israel without being labeled as ” Unloving” Un Christina” Unkind” “anti-Semitic”?? The all-powerful “anti-Semitism” card that has again too often been been played against me the force of a blunt object; for when these Jewish patriots don’t like what I say they start their personal slanders, personal; attacks, name calling against me.. I know that the Jews were once “God’s Chosen People” and the rest of us we still are just whatever… but when Israel behaves like a violent psychopathic bully and someone mentions it that does NOT make them anti-Semitic. ” and the right of free speech is not for the Jews only now too..
.
Those who question the legitimacy of Israel’s actions are immediately labeled anti-Semitic by some quarters, effectively undermining the turn of phrase by using it in this context. We are right to question the state of Israel’s actions and I am not anti-Semitic for doing so. I think the religious fundamentalism exhibited by certain Zionist and Orthodox Jewish groups needs to be dealt with in a similar manner to Islamic fundamentalism, I don’t see the distinction between the two, both are equally repulsive. ” THEY BOTH FALSELY DO PREACH THEIR VERSION OF THE LETTER OF THE LAW OVER LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR TOO! And for the record, their troubled history is not a license for them to act with impunity now.
.
Yes it still seems that anything anti Jewish is falsely distorted as being anti-Semitism again. And so is the New Testament, Christians, the apostles, and Jesus Christ now as well..
.
of those many mansions there are in Heaven no unsaved Jew lives the
re, or Messianic Jews only the born from above Christians. The Messianic Jews seek “Harmony among people and the planet is out goal”.. is rather also new age goal and occultist goal, and the goal of the antichrist too too.. and it will never happen.. never.. Become one with real Jesus Christ rather still..

.
It is naturally impossible for Judaism, Islam, messianic Judaism and Christianity to be considered as all acceptable as they are very different.. Even Judaism is now dead to God. Matthew 24:1 – 25:46 The Olivet Discourse purpose is to reveal events of the near and distant future.
(1) prophetically: Jesus foretells the Roman conquest of Jerusalem and the Temple that occurred in A.D. 70. His predictions about this catastrophe and the tribulations leading up to it are expressed in the apocalyptic language of the OT prophets, which is often cryptic and symbolic. The effect is to show that Jerusalem’s doom will be an event of world-shaking consequence in the divine plan of salvation.
(2) Typologically: the devastation of the Temple, which stood as an architectural Jewish Nationalism, and anticipates in the future next the New Heavenly Jerusalem and eventually the fiery dissolution of heaven and earth and the coming of Christ when Jesus comes again in glory to judge the living and the dead (2 Pet 3:10-13; Rev 20:11-15; CCC 585-86).

2 Timothy 2: 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down.
.
The fig tree is the symbol of the nation of Israel.. the Romans destroyed the temple and all of it’s record in 70 ad. Judaism was now dead to God because..
.
Luke 13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
.
Acts 1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.
.
Many persons sadly still do lie, Bible expositors and preachers AND JEWS, MESSIANC JEWS now also, now they lie when they use a part of the Bible to try to put forth their false pet doctrines while even neglecting the rest of the Bible specially the New Testament.
.
“There are also now no Bible verses that say, ‘There is going to be a third temple.’” Actually, the Bible does not say that a Temple must be built before Christ can return. Nor does the Bible teach that the building of the Temple, or talk and rumors about a Temple being built, are a sign of Christ’s return. The Bible teaches that there are no signs of Christ’s coming, Acts 1:7, Matthew 24:36-42, 1 Thessalonians 5:2. There is a false notion that the impending construction of the 3rd Temple will soon usher in Christ’s return and bring an end to all our earthly problems and trials. Naturally, this type of escapist thinking is popular with the Bible ignorant, uncommitted masses, but as we have seen, but still there is no Scriptural basis for it. A Jewish temple does not help to disciple Christians; rather, it only propagates “Jewish fables” of the type that Paul tells us to reject, Titus 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
.
Since the time of Christ’s death on the Cross, there has been no need anymore for any earthly Temple nor will there ever be one.. Matthew 27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
.
Nowhere in the Bible are we commanded to work for the construction of any Temple – our orders are to plant New Testament Christian churches, and not any false Jewish temples, Matthew 28: 18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
.
Heaven awaits the Jewish return TO God, Jesus Christ, and rather NOT TO THE PROMISED EARTHLY LAND BUT TO THE NEW HEAVENLY
.
There actually is no Biblical promised prophecy, promised second return of the Jews to Israel in the Old Testament or in the whole Bible now too. after their second dispersion from Israel by the Romans in 70 ad.. . Not even one Bible verse even for the Jewish return in 1948.. Do try prove me wrong..
.
Jesus, who is God clearly said to all persons now.. JN 15:4 “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much …fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 15:6 “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
.
Jews and many others now have to falsely have to resort to lies and the past fulfilled promises of a return even-
.
Revelation 21:22 clearly says now, teaches that there will be no Temple in the Millennium: “And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.” Also in the New Testament we are told in Hebrews 7:11-18 that God has permanently set aside the priesthood of the descendants of Levi, in favor of the priesthood of Christ, a non-Levite.
.
Also under the New Covenant, circumcision is not required, Galatians 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
.
THESE FALSE JEWISH LOVERS CANNOT DEBATE THE FACTS HERE, THE NEW TESTAMENT BIBLE, CANNOT QUOTE APPROPRIATE NEW TESTAMENT VERSES TO DISPROVE ANYHING I HAVE SIAD.. ALL THEY CAN DO IS RESORT TO FALSE PERSONAL ATACKS HERE TOO.. SO TYPICALLY JEWISH TOO.
.
Christian and Jewish Zionism is a false movement that seeks a spiritual and national restoration of Israel, the land of the Jewish people. Specifically, these Zionists falsely still do believe that the Jews have a divine right to the real estate it formerly possessed during the reign of King Solomon, based on the promises that God made to Abraham
.
Christian Zionists falsely also believe that, once Israel’s land is restored and its ancient borders are secured, Christ will come again to rule with the Jews in Israel for a millennium.
.
Zionists now have no documented legal legitimate heritage or inheritance after the destruction of all records in the Jerusalem temple in 70 ad . None can prove of whom he is the son, so Zionists even now have no legitimate lineage. Even the common Scripture used by heretics to justify a “Jewish home” is Genesis 12:26 “I will bless those who bless thee, and curse those who curse thee.” This scripture refers however now solely to the justification of the heathen (Gentiles) in Christ, those who are called by the name Christians. Zionism is based on the faulty assumption that God still owes the Jews the land He promised to give to Abraham’s descendants.
.

“…For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel… That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God” (Romans 9:6,8).
.
“For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outwar
d in the flesh: 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.” —Romans 2:28,29
.
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” —Galatians 3:28
.
Galatians 3:1 (God) redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, SO THAT by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
.
Jude 1:3 Beloved, my whole concern was to write to you in regard to our common salvation. [But] I found it necessary {and} was impelled to write you and urgently appeal to {and} exhort [you] to contend for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints [the faith which is that sum of Christian belief which was delivered verbally to the holy people of God.
.
Matthew 21: 43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to It is clear from this declaration by Jesus that the Jews are no longer being blessed by God, no longer the chosen ones, even if they do falsely deny this.. Jews who reject Jesus as the Jewish Messiah are consequently condemned by God, forfeiting the promises otherwise due to them under the covenants.; have forfeited any covenantal status. The Christian Church is the sole the inheritor of the promises made with the children of Israel.;
.
Cessation, Supersessionism and replacement theology or fulfillment theology are the true Christian interpretations of New Testament Covenant and viewing God’ . The Christian Church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel. As the Christian the church is a continuation of Israel (replacement/covenant theology), Also, covenants made with Israel are fulfilled in the Christian church
.
There are no Biblical remaining prophecies concerning Israel to be fulfilled before Jesus returns. The New Testament Bible does not contain any prophecy concerning Israel today, except that she will continue to “fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled” (Luke 21:24).
.
No Christians should be focusing upon the Middle East today; but rather, upon preaching the Full Gospel to the world (Matthew 28:19,20). We are also now to love all people, of all nations, of all races
.
NOT SURPRISING THAT JEWISH LOVERS TURN TO HATRED WHEN YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THEM AND SHOW THE WHOLE WORLD WHAT THEY ARE REALY LIKE STILL.. DEMONIC

Ephesians 2: 1    And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2    Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:  3    Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4    But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5    Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6    And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7    That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9    Not of works, lest any man should boast.

The Bible says that Hell was created for the devil and his demons, and while  not for one single human being

 Matthew 25: 13    Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. 14    For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15    And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 16    Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17    And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18    But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. 19    After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 20    And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21    His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 22    He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 23    His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 24    Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25    And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. 26    His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27    Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28    Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29    For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30    And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 31    When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32    And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33    And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34    Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35    For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36    Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37    Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38    When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?  39    Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40    And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41    Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Sadly most  humans by the exercise of their own free will they still choose to go to hell by refusing to admit, repent of their sins and rejecting Jesus Christ as their sole Lord and Savior.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” —John 14:6

“And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord…” —Revelation 14:13

 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” —Revelation 20:14,15 .

ALIVE

(Jer 9:2 KJV)   Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men. 3  And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD. 4  Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders. 5  And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity. 6  Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.

 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: (Isa 29:13 KJV)

(Acts 10:38 KJV)  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 showed him openly;

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

THIS BAPTISM, FILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT  IS FIRSTLY RESERVED ONLY FOR GOD’S CHILDREN, HIS BELIEVERS WHO HAVE ACCEPTED JESUS CHRIST AS THEIR PERSONAL SAVIOR AND ALSO THE FULL LORD OF THEIR LIFE.  JESUS SADLY IS STILL NOT ACTUALLY THE LORD OF ALL OF THE PROFESSING CHRISTIANS  TOO.THERE THUS NOW ARE BOTH INITIAL AND CONTINUAL FILLINGS, HOLY SPIRIT ANOINTING UPON ALL BELIEVERS.

“Indeed the fullness of God the Holy Spirit is essential to every child of God and God promised this fullness to all His children and assured us that if His children ask they shall receive (Luke 11:33). In all the accounts referred to above the gift of the Holy Spirit was reserved for those called children of God, believers, disciples of the Lord Jesus and had received God’s Word (Acts 2:14,15,17).

Although the baptism in the Spirit can occur jointly at conversion, it usually happens at a later time. It is a result of our own personal willingness to walk fully with the Lord in obedience to His will.The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is separately both a filling of the Holy Spirit and an anointing of the Holy Spirit for a particular  service for God. To be baptized in the Spirit is to be immersed in the Spirit to the point that the you do allow the Holy Spirit takes over control of your life, activities, to empower you  – to take direct control even of your thoughts, words and actions. You see, it is one thing to have the Spirit residing in you. It is another thing to have the Spirit presiding over  you.  Ephesians 5:18 tells us, “And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled continually with the Spirit.” The Greek tense for filled implies the idea of keeping on being filled.  We all are to pray that we be also filled with the Spirit continually. We also can always come closer to God and receive more of the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

It is too often also still the religious Proud people like to say that they have all of the  Holy ghost and they do not need anymore , but in reality by their pride they show that they do not enough of Him.. ironically these same proud people tend not to manifest even the charismatic spiritual gifts as well, not surprisingly, for still they are too full if it, full of sin and pride.. Baptism of the Holy Ghost – is God’s given power for our service for him received.   We should desire as much of Him the Holy spirit  as well..  and more everyday too..

It is amazing to me how the basic Christians issues are so commonly discussed  and yet too often really personally unknown still including the gifts of the Holy Spirit

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. (2 Cor 4:7 KJV)

Note this:  

– Jesus was born by the power of the Holy Spirit ((Luke 1:35 KJV)  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. ).    

– He went about doing good and healing all the oppressed by the devil, by the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 10:38 KJV)  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. ).    

– All his ministry was done anointed by the Holy Spirit ((Luke 4:18 KJV)  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, ).    

– He was crucified moved by the eternal Spirit ((Heb 9:14 KJV)  How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? ).    

– The Spirit raised Jesus from the death ((Rom 8:11 KJV)  But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. ).    

– And actually, the Holy Spirit is the one who leads the Church and your life and mine

((John 14:15 KJV)  If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16  And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;17  Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.18  I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. (John 14:26 KJV)  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. (John 15:26 KJV)  But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: (John 16:7 KJV)  Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9   Of sin, because they believe not on me;10  Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. 14  He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. ).    

– All the Bible was inspired by the Holy Spirit, and that’s why it is the Word of God, to guide and help in the sanctification of all of us ((Heb 4:12 KJV)  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (2 Pet 1:21 KJV)  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. ).

Once a person has been personally now accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior, note both, they will next be baptized with the Holy Spirit, and clearly he or she will start becoming a different person. This generally will happen in two different ways:

-The Holy Spirit will continually empower the believer with new abilities, called “The Gifts of the Holy Spirit.” These gifts enable the believer to do the Lord’s work in new and sometimes miraculous ways. Think of them as “birthday gifts” in honor of their new birth but they are also gifts to equip one to service Christ and the body of Christ much better . The gift of the Holy spirit themselves are never an adequate substitute for having the fruit of the Holy spirit now too

– As the believer next also makes daily conscious choices to submit to the gentle leading of the indwelling Holy Spirit, the believer’s character is immediately changed. The resulting visible new character traits are called “The Fruit of the Spirit” – . The fruit of the Holy spirit themselves are never an adequate substitute for having the gifts of the Holy spirit now too

1  Corinthians,   12: 1  Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant: 2 You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led. 3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit. 4 There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all.

1 Cor 2:9  But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.  10  But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11  For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 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.

We all  do also still have to seek these Holy Spirit gifts with all our heart (Jer. 29:13), that also includes the nine Gifts of the Holy Spirit “For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing(s) by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:” (1Corinthians 12:8-10) and the Spirit of Truth, Holiness, Wisdom, of the Fear of the Lord, of Counsel, Spirit of Grace and the Spirit of Knowledge.

Spiritual Gifts

 Word of wisdom. Wisdom is simply applied knowledge. We experience the word of wisdom when the Holy Spirit gives us supernatural wisdom in a particular situation. In your daily walk, the Holy Spirit will sometimes empower you to share the Gospel with another person. The Holy Spirit will miraculously give you words to touch the heart of that person. When it happens, you KNOW that your intellect didn’t concoct that word of wisdom. It came from the heart of God, as a gift to that soon-to-be believer.  The wisdom from God can bring happiness, long life, riches, honor and peace,       

 Word of knowledge. Sometimes the Holy Spirit reveals something that the believer couldn’t possibly have known otherwise. ISometimes in your prayer times, the Lord will reveal something to you. Maybe that word is for you: to encourage you or convict you of a particular sin.  On rare occasions, the word is for (or about) somebody else or some group.  When you receive such a word, immediately ask the Lord for wisdom in how to apply it.  

        

Faith.  At specific times, God gives us clear directions to step out in faith in a particular situation, and the results are often miraculous (at least in our eyes).    We also do exercise faith when we act on the basis of God’s will, as revealed in Scripture and confirmed by the Holy Spirit.      

    

Gifts of Healings. Notice that the Bible talks about Gifts (plural) of Healings (also plural). These are individual packages of healings given to specific persons. Healing is a miraculous, partial reversal of The Curse, a special act of God’s love in our behalf.  God is willing to bestow a gift of healing through the prayers of any Spirit-filled Christian. In most cases, it is not only because these believers are successful in their prayers and  they are good listeners to god but it is also they have been gifted in this area.. They pray to HEAR the will of God FIRST. Then they can pray with 100% confidence because they are lined up with God’s will in that situation.

“…to another the working of miracles…”  It takes first a knowledge of God’s word, and of Wisdom and Faith to discern God’s will even for His service. But if we are abiding in Christ and faithfully studying Scripture, the Holy Spirit will show us His will. Just don’t be surprised (or falsely impressed with yourself) when He asks you to also work a miracle. The Lord will occasionally ask you to pray for a miracle. Miracles should also be a normal part of our walk. We should always have our hearts tuned to hear God’s voice never  the less.   (Deu 7:22 KJV)  And the LORD thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee.23   But the LORD thy God shall deliver them unto thee, and shall destroy them with a mighty destruction, until they be destroyed. (Heb 6:1 KJV)  Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,2   Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.  

“…to another prophecy…” PROPHECY IS PERSONALLY PROCLAIMING DIRECTLY GOD’S WORD SPECIFICALLY TO A SPECIFIC GROUP.. You do not have to be a Prophet to prophecy, in fact all believers are encouraged to use the gift of prophecy firstly too.  (1 Cor 14:31 KJV)  For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.  (Rev 19:10 KJV)  And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.  All Prophecy always exalts the Lord Jesus Christ. The Christian People who have learned to use faithfully the gifts of prophecy tend to become God true Prophets. God’s prophets ALSO TOO do work two ways. Most of the time, they speak forth God’s will in accordance with Scripture. At certain times, they will EVEN foretell future events.  In real life, prophecy works like a combination of the Word of Wisdom and Faith. The prophet operates in the Lord’s wisdom, and speaks in faith in obedience to the Holy Spirit and  CONSISTENT with the Scriptures. God’s prophets are not perfect as well, neither was Moses and he was a true Prophet of God  (1 Chi 8:46 KJV)  If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near; (Eccl 7:20 KJV)  For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

“…to another discerning of spirits…” there are specific times when we absolutely MUST know the truth of a particular situation. For example, we must know: Whether a person’s words and actions are motivated by the Holy Spirit, by a demon, or by that person’s own flesh nature.  And you must really pray for discernment when you are around people operating in the Spirital gifts; Your discernment will enable you to know whether their teaching is demonic or just uninspired.  I have seen many TV preachers preach what I thought was a good message only too often to  have the Holy Spirit next say to me they are false, they were not his true messengers and why as well! Even the Religious spirits do now love to operate in churches. The first instance of Jesus casting out a demon was in a synagogue. When a particular person is demon-possessed. Most of the time, this will be obvious to a Spirit-filled believer. Instantly start praying for the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom to know God’s will in that situation. Be careful to do nothing more or less than God’s will, even if God’s will is to walk away. And have faith that what God requires, He enables. Does the content of this section shock you? Just remember Paul’s words in Ephesians chapter 6, verses 12-18: For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.  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, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints . ccording to this passage, God requires us to recognize the spiritual nature of our daily walk. We’re in a battle, and you can’t see the enemy. Therefore we must be watchful (verse 18) with our supernatural senses, exercising discernment along with the gifts of wisdom, knowledge and faith.  

…to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. The “different kinds of tongues” is a most-peculiar gift. The most-famous example was when the 120 disciples began speaking in other tongues on the Day of Pentecost.  Just as each gift of healing is a partial reversal of the general curse on humanity, the gift of tongues on that occasion was a partial reversal of the curse and confounding of languages at Babel. In the passages in the Book of Acts, different groups of disciples spoke in tongues unknown both to themselves and their hearers. For example, before Peter could finish sharing the Gospel message with the Gentiles in Cornelius’ house, the Holy Spirit fell upon these Gentiles and they began speaking in other tongues.

The biggest factor in the successful usage of the spiritual gifts is our attitude of submission, lordship, meekness, humbleness..  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.  (Isa 66:2 KJV)

There are the Manifestation Gifts of the Holy Spirit, but there are also given to the Church the gifts of church officers  too.

 (Eph 4:11 KJV)  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Paul now also said, I KEEP UNDER MY BODY, AND BRING IT INTO SUBJECTION: LEST THAT BY ANY MEANS, WHEN I HAVE PREACHED TO OTHERS, I MYSELF SHOULD BE A CASTAWAY-1 Cor 9:27. Paul knew we could lose salvation as also exemplified in the following. BEHOLD THEREFORE THE GOODNESS…OF GOD…IF THOU CONTINUE IN HIS GOODNESS: OTHERWISE THOU ALSO SHALT BE CUT OFF (if you do not continue in faith and obeying the Gospel, you shall be cut off). AND THEY ALSO, IF THEY ABIDE NOT STILL IN UNBELIEF, SHALL BE GRAFTED IN: FOR GOD IS ABLE TO GRAFT THEM IN AGAIN-Ro 11:22,23.

At any point in our Christian life we can decide to turn back, to choose the things of the world rather than the things of God and heaven. 50 percent of all of the once loudly professing Christians I know eventually do fall away from the Lord, deliberately chose not to follow after him anymore, mainly cause they have a desire to get rich or to experience more of the pleasure of this world..  (Luke 17:32 KJV)  Remember Lot’s wife. 33  Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. 34  I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 35  Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36  Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

(1 John 2:15 KJV)  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

The Holy Spirit wants us to (Eph 5:19 KJV)  Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20  Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;21  Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

and to mediate on good things (Phil 4:8 KJV)  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Let us not grieve Him, the person of the Holy spirit . Let us be obedient to Him.  We can get anointed, filled, Baptized  of the Holy Spirit, and then through sins, neglect of our godly spiritual life, we can drift away from the Lord and begin once again to quench and grieve the Spirit. Our personal convictions  of our sins by the Holy Spirit and our personal repentance will then bring us back to the Lord and to a new release of the power of His Spirit within us. Thus, we experience again the power of the  baptism in the Spirit. The only way we can stay full of the Spirit is to stay near, to come back to the  fountain, Jesus Christ  who is the baptizer of us with the Holy Spirit. Let us talk to Him and continue in a wonderful relationship with Him. Then the further purposes of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit will be achieved in our lives.

1 Corinthians 12:31, “But covet earnestly the best gifts.”

1 Corinthians 14:1, “Desire spiritual gifts.”

Eph 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

 ((Heb 12:1 KJV)  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2   Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.).

 Ephesians 1:19 “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,”  Ephesians 3:20-21 “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” . .

Psalms 22: 26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.

The New Testament Bible does not contain any prophecy concerning Israel today, except that she will continue to “fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled” (Luke 21:24).

No Christians should  be focusing upon the Middle East today; but rather, upon preaching the Full Gospel to the world (Matthew 28:19,20). We are also now to love all people, of all nations, of all races.

“…For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel… That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God” (Romans 9:6,8). 

“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. .” (Rev. 2:9- )

“For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 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.” —Romans 2:28,29

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” —Galatians 3:28

There are no Biblical remaining prophecies concerning Israel to be fulfilled before Jesus returns.

God is NO respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). God’s loyalty to Israel is to the nation in accordance with His own divine purpose and plan; and NOT to the Jewish race because they are more special than anyone else. God DIDN’T bless the Jews when they sinned against Him in the Bible. The Jews went into 70-years of captivity for failing to keep the Sabbath for 490 years (7 x 70 = 490). God punished them one year in exile for every 7-years they refused to keep the Sabbath. Deuteronomy 28:1-14 clearly make the blessings of God CONDITIONAL upon Israel.  We learn in Deuteronomy 28:15,16… “But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these CURSES shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: CURSED shalt thou be in the city, and CURSED shalt thou be in the field.”

Who Owns the Land of Palestine Today?God owns it.  God has promised the “future” Land of Palestine to the seed of Abraham (Genesis 13:14-17; 17:6-8), Isaac (Genesis 21:12), and Jacob (Genesis 28:13,14).  Of course, Jacob’s name was changed by the Lord to “Israel.”  Muslims have no Biblical claim to the land of Palestine today, NOR do the Jews.  The Lord did not promise to restore Israel to their land until HE RETURNS.  Israel was removed from their land by force in the 8th and 6th centuries B.C., by the Assyrians and Babylonians, respectively.  Israel was again removed from their land in A.D. 70 and A.D. 135 by Rome. and today God’s Blessings are Promised for all those Who Befriend the Christians (the sole, real spiritual Jews, Israel today) and not the Natural Jews Matthew 10:42    And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.  ; Mark 9: 40    For he that is not against us is on our part. 41    For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. 42    And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea

Romans 11:1-2 and 19-23, I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying … Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.”

The Scriptures you’ve just read plainly teach that ONLY Jews who believe the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ will be grafted back into the tree as God’s people. In other words, if you don’t get saved, then you are NOT God’s people and you will go to Hell forever.  Clearly, the Word of God teaches that “Jew” in the Bible, as regards all the future promises to Israel, refers ONLY to born-again Christian Jews. It is the circumcision of the inward heart, and not the outward flesh, that makes one a Jew in God’s eyes. No unconverted Jew can ever claim the promise of God concerning Palestine, unless he first BELIEVES on Jesus Christ as his personal Messiah. You Need HIS Righteousness!  “When Paul says “all Israel shall be saved,” he does not mean every individual Israelite will be saved. It is the nation he has before us in this chapter. In every age, only a remnant is saved. The quotation Paul uses is from Isaiah 59:20 in the Old Testament: “And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord.” The message to the individual is that he or she will have to “turn from transgression” to the Lord. There will be a remnant that will turn to Him. All of them will be saved. He speaks of the saved remnant as the nation Israel. There is always only a remnant that is saved. There was a remnant in Elijah’s day; there was a remnant in David’s day; there was a remnant in Paul’s day; there is a remnant in our day; and there will be a remnant during the Great Tribulation Period.   “

The Bible now also teaches that God’s promises were not made to all Jews; but only to saved Jews…”Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.” —Galatians 3:16  “So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.” —Galatians 3:9

God cut off Israel in 586 BC as well as 70 AD  for their continuous and stiff necked rebellion against His Word, his son,  even killing the prophets sand his son. But  any Jew still can be grafted back into the tree, but all Christ-rejecting Jews are NOT GOD’S PEOPLE. Less than 2% of the Jews living in Israel today profess to be a Christian. The Zionist certainly aren’t a holy people. Jews are the most hateful enemies of Jesus Christ today.;

There was,  is no promised 3rd return to Israel, Jerusalem. Rather there are differing legal and diplomatic positions on Jerusalem held within the international community.[1] Scholars are divided over the legal status of Jerusalem under international law.  No country in the world has recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Many do not recognize it as a city that is properly Israel’s. Many UN member states formally adhere to the United Nations proposal that Jerusalem should have an international status.; “By calling this covenant ‘new,’ he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear” (Heb. 8:13). The choice, therefore, is between two theologies: one based on the shadows of the Old Covenant and one based on the substance of the New Covenant.

And let me say boldly that Israel belongs to God, not the Jews. Leviticus 25:23, “The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.” Unsaved Zionist Jews claim that God promised the land to them; but the Bible says it is God’s land upon which He has promised to regather all the saved (Jew and Gentile alike) to live (Galatians 3:26-29). This regathering will happen when Jesus Christ returns at the Second Coming (and not until).

Further more the Christians are God’s people today. Galatians 3:28-29 says there are no Jews in Christ…Galatians 3:28-29, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” There is neither Jew nor Gentile in Christ. So we can divide all humanity into one of three groups: Jews, Gentiles and Christians. The Jews today are NOT God’s people. Galatians 3:29, “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

In fact, Deuteronomy 28:15-68 pronounces numerous CURSES upon the Jews if they fail to obey God’s commandments.  God’s promise of blessing upon Israel is conditioned upon their obedience to the Word of God. The same is true of all mankind (Acts 17:30). Romans 11:1-2 and 19-23 plainly teach that God CUT OFF Israel because of immorality and unbelief; but ANYBODY, Gentile or Jew alike, will be grafted back into God’s tree as His people BY FAITH.

Acts 10:34 states: “…God is no respecter of persons.” Romans 10:12 states: “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek…” Jews are no better, or worse, than anyone else. To teach that Jews are special, and should be treated better than other people, goes contrary to the Scriptures… “My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.” Christians are commanded to love Arabs as much as Jews. God now basically  hasn’t defended Israel since the Old Testament, because of their sin and rebellion… “Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble” (Jeremiah 11:14).  Christ-rejecting Jews are NOT God’s people; but believing Arabs ARE God’s people. Any Gentile who believes the Gospel (death, burial and resurrection) of Jesus Christ is saved and God’s people according to Romans 11:1-2,19-23 and Galatians 3:26-29. The only thing Christians should be praying for today concerning Israel is that they would repent toward God from their unbelief and get saved. Israel is a wicked nation today, where there is no religious freedom. There is nothing in the Bible which teaches that the Church is expected to financially support heathen Israel, or assist Israel in any capacity. God promised to regather and restore Israel at the Second Coming of Christ, and not before. Galatians 3:28-29, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” These Scriptures plainly teach that only those who are in Jesus Christ by faith are Abraham’s seed according to promise. This is why nearly all Jews today reject the New Testament. It matters not whether you are Jew or Gentile, free or imprisoned, male or female… we are all one in Christ Jesus! Followers of Judaism openly reject Jesus as the Christ and are therefore of the Devil. God blesses those who do good unto those who are in Christ by faith. Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

The New Testament teaches that Christians are to focus on the heavenly Jerusalem, not the earthly one (John 4:21, Galatians 4:24-28, Hebrews 12:18-24). We are told in Hebrews 11:13-16 that even Abraham has no further interest in a restored Jewish state on earth, because he is in a much better place in Heaven

.

Romans 3:1 What advantage then has the Jew, or what is the profit of circumcision? 2 Much in every way! Chiefly because to them were committed the oracles of God. 3 For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? 4 Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written: “That You may be justified in Your words, And may overcome when You are judged.”
 .
The advantage of being Jewish was that they were the first to hear the gospel of Salvation, healing, deliverance, redemption. But being Jewish in no way insures that one will avail himself of the blessing available “in Christ.” “The promises” are only “in Christ” Galatians 3:16  Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.  Acts 13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold and said, it was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing you put it from you and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles
 .
Today, we also are still blessed through the Jewish race because through them  we also now have  the full Word of God, Jesus Christ and the New Testament…
.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first and also to the Greek (Romans 1:16). Tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man that doeth evil, to the Jew first and also to the Gentile (Romans 2:9). …glory, honour and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first and also to the Gentile (Romans 2:10).

.

In Romans 2:25-29, Paul tells us that being Jewish and being circumcised are now both a matter of the heart. Also, in Philippians 3:3; For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the (Jewish) flesh.

.

1Co 15:27-28, For He (the Father) has put all things under His (Christ’s) feet. But when He (the Father) saith all things are put under Him (Christ) it is manifest that He (the Father) is excepted which did put all things under Him (Christ). And when all things shall be subdued unto Him (Christ) then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him (the Father) that put all things under Him (Christ) that God (the Father) may be all in all.

.

Still every religion in the world including Judaism and most of those too who claim to be Christians have devised some plan of their own, their own selected verses, gospel version, by which they can praise themselves, use their own efforts to become righteousness. The Bible still does teaches that a man cannot earn his own salvation cause he was born a sinner–and not just in the New Testament. Ecclesiastes 7:20 teaches: “For there is not a just man upon the earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Solomon also had  said, “for there is no man that sinneth not” (I Kings 8:46).

.

Therefore, no man can achieve perfect righteousness. As a result, all men including Jews are under a curse. Deuteronomy 27:26, after the giving of the law, states, “Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them. And all the people shall say, Amen.” Notice, the man who does not do all the words of this law is said to be cursed. Yet, all men fail in the law at some point. David said of mankind, “They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one” (Psalm 14:3).

.

The Jewish Apostle Paul declared, “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved” (Romans 10:1). He further testified, “I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh” (Romans 9:2-3). Apostle Paul knew that each individual must accept or reject Jesus Christ on their own. “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all: (Isaiah 53:4-6).

.

The Apostle Paul reveals to us at the end of Romans 2 and also in Galatians 3, that the promise was not many descendants but One descendant. “The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say “and to seeds,” meaning many people, but “and to your seed,” meaning one person, who is Christ. ” ( Galatians 3:16 ) So we can conclude that no one has ever become a heir of God’s promise by natural birth as the Jews assumed. Before Christ, Old Testament saints were justified by faith in God’s promised Messiah. After Jesus, we are justified through Faith in Christ. Heirs of the promise are those who are of the spiritual seed of Abraham, and are justified by faith. ( Romans 4:16 )

.

So Abraham “believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness” (Genesis 15:6).
