Psalm 18:1-3. I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust: my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
1John 2:23. Whosoever (Jew or Gentile) denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: but he that acknowledges the Son hath the Father also. V.24. Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
John 15:23. He that hateth me hateth my Father also (Jew or Gentile).
2John 9. Whosoever (Jew or Gentile) transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
I set forth these verses, and more following, for two reasons:
1.That it may be clearly seen that Jesus is also the Father, God in heaven;and,
2.That it may be understood by scripture that there is and always was only one Israel of God, and his people, the called, chosen, elect and faithful, who are born again, being redeemed from among men, washed clean by the blood of the Lamb, and having believed in Jesus since he first came, and have become sons of God, holy unto the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, who shed his mercy and grace upon us while we were yet sinners; and this was done to save his people from their sins whether they be Jew or Gentile.
Without true repentance and belief in the Messiah who came to the cross about two thousand years ago, there is no hope to enter into the kingdom of God.
. The bible makes it plain, one cannot get saved without hearing the word of God (Romans 10:13-17).
. The bible makes it plain, the gathering again the second time is in Jesus Christ the Messiah (Isaiah 11:1-11).
. The bible makes it plain, the word of God will not change one bit (Malachi 3:6; Matt. 5:17; 24:35).
. The bible makes it plain, there is indeed only one group of people who are the elect of God, whether Jew or Gentile ( Romans 10:12 Galatians 3:28,29; John 10:16).
. The bible makes it plain, salvation is first the call of God, not man (Romans 11:5; Acts 13:48; 15:11-17; John 15:16).
.The bible makes it plain, it is not for everyone since the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4-5; Revelation 13:8; 17:8).
John 14:6-9. Jesus said unto him (Thomas), I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man (Jew or Gentile) cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip said unto him, Lord, show us the Father and it sufficeth us.Jesus said unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
Remember, Jesus is talking to his disciples who are Jews. Nicodemus was also a Jew and a ruler of them (John 3:1).
John 3:12-13. If I have told you earthly things and you believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man has ascended up to heaven, but he that cometh down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
Matthew 11:27. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
Remember, the Son is also the Word. One is not separate from the other therefore a person can never understand unless they have heard the word and God has opened their spiritual ears. It is the word of God given to us by the Spirit of God that gives us salvation (born again-John 3:3) and helps us ‘see’ the Father by faith.
Ephesians 1:13. (Jesus) In whom ye trusted (believed), after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation (the word of God): in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise.
Romans 10:14-17. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written (Isaiah 52:7 – read whole chapter), How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Hebrew 11:6. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Ephesians 2:8. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it (faith) is the gift of God. Not of works lest any man should boast.
Clearly no one can be saved except they have heard the word of God and their spiritual understanding has been opened by God. There is only one plan of salvation for Jew and Gentile alike, and it was preached in the Old Testament and the New Testament. It was preached to the Jews through all the law and the prophets and psalms but mostly they did not benefit from the preaching because they did not believe (Luke 24:44;Hebrew 4:1).
Hebrew 4:1-2. Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
Luke 24:44-45. And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.
Luke 24:46-48. And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations (including the Jews), beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things.
The way Jesus is speaking here shows that God suffered on the cross in the flesh. Note; ‘It behoved Christ to suffer’. ‘Christ’ is the anointing of God in the flesh he prepared for himself (Heb.10:5) to take upon himself the ultimate offering for our sins (Heb.10:12). His blood was shed for the remission of sins of all he is saving (Jew and Gentile alike). Isaiah 53:10-12 tells us that his soul was in travail and that he ‘poured out his soul unto death’ when he made intercession for many. John 19:30 records Jesus saying, ‘It is finished’. The work of salvation was finished at the cross by Jesus Christ. All (Jew or Gentile) who believe they are people of God must believe on Jesus who came and died on the cross, and rose from the dead. There is no other way and there is no ‘plan B’. Either one is born again or one has missed it completely.
Isaiah 49:1-7. (Jesus speaking in the first person) Listen, O isles (the Gentiles), unto me; and hearken ye people from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me ( see Psalm 45:5; read 1-17. The arrow is the word of God, the sword of the Spirit). And said unto me, Thou art my servant (Jesus), O Israel, in whom I will be glorified (Matthew 3:17).
Israel here is the name of Jesus. He is the true Israel. He is the true temple. If we are born again, that is, saved, redeemed from among men, then we are Israelites, followers of Israel (Jesus).
Isaiah 44:1-6. Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel whom I have chosen (still prophecy of Jesus):Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen (‘Jesurun’ means ‘upright’ – Jesus is upright and so are all who are redeemed, born again).For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty (Matt.5:6; John 3:5; John 4:14), and floods upon the dry ground (John 7:37-38): I will pour my spirit upon thy seed (it happened at Pentecost and all who are born again since- Galatians 3:16-17,27-29), and my blessing upon thine offspring (John 20:29; Deut.28:1-14; Exodus 23:22-30; Matt.5:1-12). And they shall spring as the grass, as willows by the water courses (the river of life). One shall say, I am the LORD’s; another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel.Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
Revelation 1:8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. V.11. (Jesus)…Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last:….(see Vs.17,18; Rev.2:8; 22:13-16).
Back to Isaiah 49:4. Then I said , I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nought (talking about Jesus’ three and a half year ministry – not many Jews believed him), and in vain: yet surely my judgement is with the LORD, and my work with my God. And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered (natural Israel), yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength. And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel (see Romans 11:1-5, 20-23, God has preserved a remnant from the nation of Israel, to be saved with the Gentiles through belief in Jesus Christ who went to the cross, rose from the dead, and went to heaven from whence he came): I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth (Hebrew 7:25… to the uttermost..= to the end of the world).
The word ‘salvation’ here is the same as Isaiah 12:2,3. In Hebrew the word is ‘Yeshuwah’, and in Greek is ‘Iesous’ or ‘Jesus’. For example Isaiah 12:2 would read in Hebrew Hinneh El Hayah Dibrah Yeshuwah, i.e. Behold, God is my Jesus.
Isaiah 12:2-3. Behold, God is my salvation (Jesus); I will trust , and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation (Jesus). Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation (Jesus).
John 4:14. But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Isaiah 12:4. And in that day (when Jesus-salvation- came in the flesh, John 1:14, and dwelt among us) shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people (see the Acts of the Apostles), make mention that his name is exalted. Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion (all God’s people): for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.
Hebrew 12:22-24. (we are not come to religion) But ye are come unto Mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn(Jesus- not assemblies of God religion), which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect. And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Matthew 18:20. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Psalm 89:15-18. Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance. In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted. For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted. For the Lord is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our king.
Isaiah 4:1-2. And in that day (when Jesus came) seven women (religions-not literally seven) shall take hold of one man (Jesus), saying, We will eat our own bread (doctrines), and wear our own apparel (works of righteousness- self justification) : only let us be called by thy name (you must call me Christian, a child of God) , to take away our reproach (Only few who believe they are God’s children will go to heaven, many will not make it- see matt.7:13-24). In that day shall the branch of the LORD (Jesus) be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth (all whom Jesus is saving, whether Jew or Gentile) shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped ( from the corruption of sin – redeemed) of Israel (Matt.1:21).
Matthew 1:21. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins (Isaiah43:11 , read from 10 -21).
Isaiah 4:3. And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem (all saved through Jesus) shall be called holy (separated unto God), even everyone that is written (in the book of life – Phil.4:3) among the living in Jerusalem: When the LORD shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion (God’s people – Isaiah 51:16, washed by the blood), and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgement, and by the spirit of burning.
Matthew 3:11. (to the Jews) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire (judgement and burning – Malachi 3:3 also).
Isaiah 11:1-4. And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots (Jesus – Shiloh – Gen.49:10; Ps.78:60-72; Romans 15:12; Rev.22:16). And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears (John 7:24): But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth (Rev.19:15), and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked (read through to V.11).
Isaiah 11:10-11. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people (Jesus, our banner of Victory); to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people (from the Jews and Gentiles), which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea (read through to V.16).
Jesus is gathering his elect (Jews and Gentiles). Jesus is the highway (Isaiah 35:5 – read whole chapter). Jesus is the ensign (Isaiah 59:16-21). Jesus is the right arm of God. People will not believe and always ask for a sign.
Isaiah 5:18-19. Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope: That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come, that we may know.
John 10:24-33. Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long do you make us to doubt? If thou be Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you (John 8:38-47). My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me (the Word of God): And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of these works do you stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
The Jews clearly understood that Jesus said he is God, but he didn’t fit their perception of how God should appear. They had no spiritual understanding because God blocked their eyes and ears and hardened their hearts, so that they could not see, nor hear, nor understand lest they be converted. This condition remains till the end of time (John 12:37-40; Isaiah 6:8-13; 1Thess.2:14-16).
Isaiah 6:8-13. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us (when we become saved we hear the call to share the gospel with others who are lost)? Then said I, Here am I, send me. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land utterly desolate, And the LORD hath removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.
Jesus, the living God, the Holy One of Israel, pronounced judgement against the nation of Israel ( Mark 11:13-14) and has gathered the second time the holy seed to himself through the cross. Without Jesus there is no reconciliation to God (2Cor.5:18-19). He came as the Messiah for all who are called (from the Jews and the Gentiles). Every true born again Christian is holy seed, by faith, not by works. I call on Jews of the State of Israel to repent and believe this message, or you will perish.
1 Thessalonians 2:10-16. Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believed. As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged everyone of you, as a father doth his children, That ye walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judea are in Christ Jesus: for ye have also suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men (still the same today); Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins always: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost ( uttermost – Strong’s, 5056 – till the end. Remember Heb.7:25, Jesus saves till the end). Put away your Jewish passport and turn to the cross as the only way for any to flee the wrath of God. There never will be any other way. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Daniel 9:26. (After the city and temple was destroyed about 70AD); and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined (the wrath of God on an unbelieving world till the end of the world – see John 3:36). V.27.( a peace treaty is not mentioned) And he (Jesus) shall confirm the covenant with many ( in the upper room, Lk.22:19-20; Matt.26:28) for one week (Jesus started preaching at the beginning of the 70th week – see www.whathathGodsaid.org/the-70th-week): and in the midst of the week (after three and a half years ministry) he shall cause the sacrifice and oblation (religious service) to cease (Jesus was the final sacrifice once and forever, Heb.10:12-14), and for the overspreading of abominations (now all over the world) he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation (the end), and that (which is ) determined (the wrath of God) shall be poured upon the desolate (Rev.17:17).
God made a covenant to save his people from their sins (Matt.1:21). When this happened at the cross we who are born again were still his enemy (Rom.5:8-9): and all who do not become born again remain his enemy, Jew or Gentile.
Jesus, the Holy One of Israel, started preaching at the beginning of the 70th week. In the midst of the week he was cut off and put an end to all sacrifice and oblation forever (Heb.10:10-14). There never will be anymore sacrifice forever for God’s people. The desolations and overspreading of abominations till we hear the call of Revelation 10:6 …that there should be time no longer: (also 1Thess.4:16-17, etc.), and those who belong to God through Jesus Christ the Messiah, the Holy One of Israel, born of a virgin (Lk.1:31-35), born under the law (Gal.4:4), to redeem those under the law (the Jews,Gal.4:5), and to fulfill all the law (Matt.5:17-18); was crucified by his own people according to scripture, rose from the dead on the third day according to scripture (1Cor.15:3-4): this Jesus will take us up who belong to him and the rest of the world will suffer the pure wrath of God without mixture (whether Jew or Gentile) (Revelation 14:10-11,19).
There will be no more mercy like there is today. We see terror and destruction around us every day, every conceivable evil that people do to each other. We see floods, famine, fires, earthquakes in divers places, wars and rumours of wars, nations against nations, kingdoms against kingdoms and so on (see Matt.24:7-8; Lk.21:24-36). God’s wrath has been on the earth since the truth was rejected by men (Jew and Gentile alike) and nailed to the cross by his own people. But the hand of salvation is stretched out still. Repent and be thou born again calling on the name of Jesus for the forgiveness of sins, and for the infilling of the Holy Ghost. God will save those as truly repent, confessing their sins to him. But his wrath remains on an unbelieving world. This is the mixture. When Jesus comes back it is all over. There will be no more salvation; no second chance. Only the pure wrath of God on all those who rejected Jesus from the cross and have never believed in him as their personal Saviour.
Jesus Christ, the Holy One of Israel, died once for the sins of many (Heb.9:26-28); and will bring them to him without sin unto salvation but those who have rejected and continue to reject the Messiah who went to the cross will suffer the judgement (Heb.9:27) and the wrath of God will be poured out without mixture (i.e. no more chance for salvation).
The belief that the Nation State of Israel and all its people are God’s chosen is wrong. I urge one to do a thorough study of all the scriptures, comparing spiritual with spiritual, 1 Corinthians 2:12-14. All the nations of the world are under the wrath of God including the State of Israel. The final judgement day is coming soon and that will be the end of this planet. There will be a new heaven and a new earth and no more sea (Rev.21:1) and nations in the new earth will consist of saved people only (Rev.21:24) and only righteousness will be there (2Peter3:10-13).
The thousand year reign of Christ has already happened. Jesus bound Satan when he came, and defeated and destroyed Satan and his works at the cross (Heb,2:14-15). Jesus cast out devils which was not done during the Old Testament days (see Mark 1:27). Jesus declared in Matthew 12:28-29 that one must bind the strong man before plundering his house. Jesus has been plundering Satan’s house ever since. All who are called to be born again down through the ages are going to get born so that they can grow up till that time that God puts the call on their life and they cry out to God. Satan has always believed that abortions will prevent people being saved. Satan cannot kill God’s chosen till they are saved and have finished their testimony on this earth (see Rev.11:7). Everyone is under the power of Satan till they become born again (Acts 26:19; 1Peter2:9). There is no exception.
Jesus bound Satan so that one could be loosed from the prisonhouse (Isaiah 58:5-6) and come into the kingdom of God. Satan was restrained by the Holy Spirit. Now the Holy Spirit is not restraining Satan anymore and he is loosed and once again gathering Gog and Magog from the four quarters of the earth against God’s clled, chosen, elect and faithful, all who are born again in every country of the world. The child of God has the power of the Holy Ghost to hedge him in during this time that Satan is building his one world empire (read Rev.20:7-10). Satan is using government laws to outlaw Christianity worldwide and religions claiming Christianity are all false. They are registered with the government as the world super church to get everyone involved and snared by the mark of the beast. They must compromise with the government or they could not exist. The Pharisees knew this but people have forgotten today. John 11:47-48. Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? For this man doeth many miracles. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation.
The religions must compromise with the antichrist one world government that is well and truly in place or they will lose all they have, especially their wealth.
Have you who are really born again noticed how hard it is to find anyone who really wants to listen to the word of God? They are too busy with programmes to suffer an indepth bible study, even church goers. Jesus said in Luke 23:31 (on his way to the cross) For if they do these things in a green tree (Jesus), what shall be done in the dry (where we are at now). Compare with Luke 18:8b..Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on earth?
A good question, there are millions upon millions of ‘Christians’ in unbelief and as such are on the path of destruction. Wake up!!!
Matthew 7:13-14. Enter ye in at the strait (restricted) gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait (restricted) is the gate, and narrow (confined) is the way (only Jesus the Word, not religion), which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
I urge you to seriously study the following scriptures;-
Isaiah 5:20-25. Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! (they don’t see their own guilt)! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to drink strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! (These happenings are everywhere now) Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One Of Israel (Remember John 15:23). Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people (unbelieving Jews and Christians alike), and he stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them, and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
John 15:23. He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
In Isaiah 10 we see again the Holy One of Israel is going to save a remnant of his people only, and that in Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 10:20-22,27. And it shall come to pass in that day (when the Messiah came), that the remnant of Israel , and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more stay on him that smote them; but stay on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth (John 4:23-24). The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though thy people be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness (until the Holy One of Israel comes back with final judgement). And it shall come to pass in that day (when Jesus came), that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
A clear picture of this is seen in Micah 5. God gave up his people to their evil ways until that time when Jesus the Messiah came and shed his blood on the cross and so (In this manner-see Romans 11:26 also) confirming his covenant with Abraham and his seed (read Genesis 15:17-18; Gal.3:16-17,27-29), and Jesus by the anointing of God, saves his people from the Assyrian, the land of Nimrod (Babylon), and gathers his people to himself from all over the earth where they had been scattered generations before. The ‘land’ is no more the state of Israel, it is the heavenly city of the living God, Mount Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem(Heb.12:22) and is within you when you are saved (Luke 17:21).
Jesus told the Pharisees who were expecting him to raise up their nation once again that the kingdom did not come by observation but it is within. The criteria is to be born again and be in the kingdom of God spiritually and when a believer dies in the flesh he is already in heaven with the Lord, whether Jew or Gentile.
Jesus the Messiah came to declare the acceptable year of the Lord in that day(Luke 4:18-19). When he returns it will be as in: – 2Thessalonians 1:6-10. Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us , when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe( because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
Isaiah 61:1-2,10-11. The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; V.10. I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation (we wear God’s apparel, not our own-Isaiah 4:1), he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments and as a bride adorneth herself with jewels. V.11. For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all nations (in his born again people).
All born again Christians, whether Jew or Gentile, are the planting of the Lord in his garden, and all nations have seen the work of the cross and know they are guilty. That is why they are making laws against God’s people.
Matthew 15:12-14. Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Mark 11:13-14. And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon; and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter forever. And his disciples heard it.
The fig tree is Israel the Nation in the middle east. Forever is forever. Never again to bear spiritual fruit in God’s kingdom on this earth this side of judgement day.
Isaiah 62:1-7. For Zion’s sake (God’s people- Isaiah51:16) will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake (Jesus, the true city of peace) I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. (Salvation comes by the light of the word of God – Gen.15:17; Psalm 119:105; Prov.6:23; John 8:12). And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name (Christian – Acts 11:26), which the mouth of the LORD shall name. Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God (Jesus the Messiah and all born again). Thou shalt no more be termed forsaken; neither shall thy land anymore be termed desolate: but thou shalt be called Hepzibah (God’s delight in us), and thy land Beulah (married to God): for the LORD delighteth in thee and thy land shall be married. For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee (born again-married to Jesus): and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.
When we are born again we are married to Jesus (2Corin.11:2) as chaste virgins. The Jews from the nation of Israel can only be married to God in jesus Christ (Romans 7:1-4). The old covenant is finished, never to be revived anymore.
Isaiah 62:6-7. I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem( people whom God has called to feed and watch over the flock), which shall never hold their peace day nor night (Rev.11:3-7 – till Jesus comes back when the last man is saved): ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth (the last man is saved( 2Thess.1:10; Luke 13:33).
It is important to remember we are commanded to compare spiritual things with spiritual – 1Corin.2:13.
1 Corinthians 2: 12-14. 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. 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. 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.
People need to hear the word of God (Romans 10:17) and pray for understanding (Ephesians 1:17; 2Timothy 2:7).
I ask all those who are reading this paper and are citizens of the state of Israel to put aside the Torah, the Babylonian Talmud, the Mishnah and whatever else books you have and seriously read the English King James bible, because that is the one used here, and earnestly cry out to the living God to reveal himself to you and grant you repentance, forgiveness of sins, and new life in Jesus Christ the Mesiah. I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
Isaiah 29:9-24. Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. And the vision of all is come unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
Isn’t it the same today – the learned say the king james bible is too difficult to understand, and the unlearned say, I don’t know.
V.13. 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 precepts of men (read Mark7:6-9): Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? And who Knoweth us? Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potters clay: for shall tha work say of him that made it, He hath made me not? Or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He hath no Understanding?
Isn’t that the Pharisees about 2000 years ago. They knew the scripture better that the author? And still today they say Jesus is not God (John 7:45-52).
V.17. Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field (our sins shall be made white as snow), and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest? (many born again). And in that day (when Jesus the Messiah came) the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness (Isaiah 35:5; Matt.11:3-6). The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel (that is, all who believe Jesus and are born again, Jew or Gentile). For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.
(Satan, the terrible one, uses many people to mock and scorn the word of God, Jesus and God’s people, trying to cause them to fall. He was bound by Jesus who sealed his doom at the cross – John 16:11)
V.22. Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham (in Christ Jesus- Galatians 3:13-17,27-29), concerning the house of Jacob,, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale. But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands (born again), in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel. They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine (when they are born again).
Isaiah 32:1-4. Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgement (when born again-Rev.1:5-6; 5:9-10). And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest (Jesus, our hiding place and covert); as rivers of waters in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land (Jesus- the River of Life, the Rock of our Salvation, our Rest). And the eyes of them that see will not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken (Isaiah 35:5). The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge (Saul on the road to Damascus), and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.
We see from verses 5-14 the situation in Israel was going from bad to worse till Jesus came with the true answer to their troubles – Himself. At Pentecost his spirit was poured out on those who believed – verse 15.
Isaiah 32:15-17. Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high (see Acts 1:8.But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…), and the wilderness be a fruitful field (born again live in the wilderness- Rev.12:1-17), and the fruitful field be counted for a forest (many added to the true family of God-Acts 2:41-47). Then judgement shall dwell in the wilderness (the word of God is with us, and his anointing), and righteousness remain in the fruitful field. And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever.
All true children of God, born again, whether Jew or Gentile, live in the wilderness till the end of days (Rev.12:17).
Psalm 37:37. Mark the perfect man (born again-living by the word), and behold the upright (same): for the end of that man is peace.
Isaiah 32:18-19. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and quiet resting places (where ever we are); When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place. V.20. Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass (sending forth the gospel).
Clearly the chapter is talking about salvation in Jesus Christ. The nation of Israel had no more future as an external representation of the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God came in the person of Jesus Christ (Matt.4:17…Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand). For those who believed Jesus we see in Luke 17:20-21…And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: neither shall they say, Lo here! Or lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Jesus is the door (John 10:7) and the blood was applied to the side posts, his hands, his feet, his side; and the blood was applied to the lintel, his head by a crown of thorns( see Exodus 12:7.
Jesus’ new covenant was a complete replacement of the old covenant with Moses, which could not save (Heb.8:7-13;9:1-28;10:10-19). If one reads the scriptures carefully and prayerfully one will see that this message is for all who believe, whether Jew or Gentile. One also will see that Jesus is the only way into the Kingdom of God, and now is the time to be saved. It is too late when Jesus returns, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those that believe not God nor obey the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Romans 11:19-23,26. (Paul speaking to the Gentiles) Thou wilt say then, The branches (Jews) were broken off, that I might be grafted in (v.11). Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not high minded, 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 grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. And so (means in this manner) all Israel (whether Jew or Gentile) shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion (God’s heavenly city) the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob (‘Jacob’ refers to our carnal nature).
Isaiah 59:1-3. Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save: neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.
Matthew 23:34-39. Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them ye shall scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias the son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, , All these things shall come upon this generation. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house (it is no more God’s house) is left unto you desolate (empty religion, no more presence of God, deserted). 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( means, Blessed is he that brings the gospel in the name of Jesus).
Then Jesus went out, and departed from the temple.. (Matt.24:1) God departed from the temple officially. There is no more God in a man-made temple. Take not of Acts 7:48 and 17:24,25.
This final judgement came upon the nation of Israel and the house of Judah in 70AD when God destroyed their temple and city for ever (remember Mark 11:13-14).
Jesus is the creator God. He knew the time of figs was not yet. He is a righteous God and is not simply cursing a natural fig tree that is not yet ready to bear fruit. The fig tree symbolizes the nation of Israel and Jesus cursed the stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ear nation of Israel that always resisted the Holy Ghost (Acts 7:51). They could never be forgiven.
Matthew 12:32. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall never be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come ( they said Jesus had a devil – they spoke against the Holy Ghost in Jesus).
We know the nation would rise again out of the bottomless pit (Matt.24:32; Rev.11:7; 13:3;17:8), and that when it did we would know the world would soon end.
Matthew 24:32. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; when his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, you know that summer is nigh.
We know that Amos 8 refers to ‘summer is nigh’ as the end.
Amos 8:1-2,7-8. And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me, The end is come upon my people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore. The LORD hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works (unforgiven). Shall not the land tremble for this, and everyone mourn that dwelleth therein? And it shall rise up wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt (complete destruction).Matt.27:50-54.
This judgement came upon Israel after they nailed the truth to the cross. God used the Romans as his sword to bring complete destruction in 70AD. When Jesus went to the cross that was the end of the world (Heb.9:26) and the wrath of God has been falling ever since with mixture. If one truly repents today one can still be saved.
Amos 8:9-11. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day: (Matt.27:45; Zech 14:6-9): And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day. Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: V.12. And they shall wonder from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to hear the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
Amos 9:1, 8-11. (Declaring the final judgement of the nation of Israel) I saw the Lord standing upon the altar; and he said, Smite the lintel of the door, that the posts may shake (Jesus on the cross): and cut them in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the sword: he that fleeth of them shall not flee away, and he that escapeth of them shall not be delivered. Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are on the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD. For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in the sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth. All the sinners of my people (the chaff- see Matt.3:12) shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us(they said that before 70AD, they say it now). In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof: and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: (through Jesus Christ, Revelation 22:16).
See Acts 15:11-17. The disciple clearly understood that the Jews would be save the same way the Gentiles were being saved, that is, through believing on the Lord Jesus Christ who died on the cross and rose from the dead, for our sakes.
This message is for all Jews individually who will believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, repent from their sins, and cry out to God for forgiveness. Escape from Mystery, Babylon the great, the Mother of Harlots and turn to Jesus Christ the Saviour, the Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the only wise God. Repent . This is the day of salvation. Soon all will end.
2 Corinthians 5:17-21. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them,; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 6:1-2. We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
Isaiah 49:7-8. Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers(Jesus-our servant, Phil.2:7), kings shall see and arise (Matt.2:1; Rev.1:5-6; Rev.5:9-10), princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee (God’s Choice, not man’s). Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people (Jesus was given- he is the gift of God), to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages; V.9. That ye may say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pasture shall be in all high places.
Read on to verse 26. You will see that those who oppressed their people will be destroyed. Gentiles also shall be saved.
Isaiah 50 opens up with the statement that (last part of verse one… and for your transgressions is your mother put away. ‘Mother’ is natural Israel under the law. They were divorced from God. When Jesus went to the cross he took the law with him (Colossians 2:14) and the old covenant ended at the cross. The new covenant can only be entered into by marriage to Jesus Christ the Risen Saviour who is the fulfillment of the law. Read Romans 7:1-4. In other words, one must be born again or there is no hope. Therein lies the truth of Adams prophecy in Genesis 2:24.
Genesis 2:24. Therefore shall a man (Jesus) leave his Father (God in heaven) and his mother (natural Israel), and shall cleave unto his wife (all true born again Jews and Gentiles): and they two shall be one flesh (Ephesians 5:31-32).
Ephesians 5: 30. For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. V.31. For this cause shall a man (Jesus) leave his Father (God) and his mother (natural Israel) , and shall be joined unto his wife (born again- the church – called out by God), and they two shall be one flesh. V.32. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church (all born again Jews and Gentiles).
John 10:16. (Jesus speaking to the Jews) And other sheep I have (Gentiles) which are not of this fold (not of the Jews and the House of Judah): them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold and one shepherd (One people of the Holy One of Israel). All God’s people are the holy Israel of God. We are ‘Holiness to the LORD’ through Jesus Christ, the Holy One of Israel, and our Redeemer. ‘Holy’ means to be consecrated to the Lord. We are separated from this world to be and empty vessel fit for his use as vessels of ministry by the infilling of the Holy Ghost and his guidance.
Romans 12:1-2. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.
We are the temple of God (2 Corin.6:16), and Jesus, having perfected forever them that are sanctified when he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of the Father, never to offer sacrifices (read Hebrew 10:5-18,26-27).
There are many more scriptures in Isaiah alone that prove that Jesus Christ is the Holy One of Israel, our Saviour, Our Redeemer, and finished his work of salvation at the cross for all he is saving, first the Jews, and also the Gentiles.
When the Jews rejected Jesus Christ (and they still do, sad to say), they cut themselves off from any hope in the kingdom of God now and forever. Remember Matthew 12:32….neither in this world, neither in the world to come’
Read Amos 9:12; Acts 15:17; Psalm 78:60-72; Isaiah 61: 1-2; 2 Chronicles 7:14; … which are called by my name… Romans 8:28…who are called according to his purpose… Acts 13:48…. And as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
Isaiah 55:1-3,6. Ho, everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, and buy, and eat: yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price (seek diligently the word of God). Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? And your labour for that which satisfieth not? Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight yourself in fatness. Incline your ear, and come unto me (Jesus – Note John 6:27): hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. V.6. Seek ye the LORD while he may be found.
Go to my website at www.whathathGodsaid.org and read my paper titled ‘The Sure Mercies Of David’ and be blessed by the word of God.
I pray that every Jew from the stae of Israel who hears the word of God will repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.
I pray that every born again Christian who is looking to the state of Israel will have their spiritual ears opened to the truth and repent
I pray that this message will be understood spiritually by Jews and Gentiles alike that they might be saved while it is still ‘TODAY’
I pray in the Name of Jesus, amen. January, 2012.
