Jesus came to the “lost sheep of Israel” (Matthew 15:24) but what happened, why are the Gentiles in custody of the New Covenant Gospel (Romans 11:25)?
Jesus came to the lost sheep of Israel as it was the Father’s will to proselytize Jacob’s children in the Gospel of the New Covenant as Jacob’s children were set apart, sanctified, to fulfill the promise made to Abraham that through Abraham would come one who would be “a blessing to every family of the Earth” (Genesis 12:3b)…Jew, Israelite, Gentile; unfortunately, Jacob’s children rejected the Messiah sent to them; Jacob’s children rejected the New Covenant Gospel established in Messiah’s blood (Matthew 26:28); Jacob’s children refused to be a blessing through the Great Commission; Jacob’s children conspired with the Roman authorities to have Messiah beaten almost to death then suffocated on a Roman Cross while simultaneously exclaiming that Messiah’s blood be upon them and their children; therefore, the promise made to Abraham was taken from Jacob’s children and given to the Gentiles until such time the fullness of the Gentiles have entered the Kingdom i.e. the Tribulation era; henceforth, Jacob’s children are suffering under the “Jewish blood curse” of their forefathers…a curse of unbelief, self-righteousness through law, that will culminate in only a “remnant” of Israel’s children finding life in Eternity (Isaiah 10:22; Romans 9:27).
“And I have other sheep that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will listen to My voice; and they will become one flock, with one shepherd.” John 10:16 (NASB)
Concerning the promise of the New Covenant given to Israel via the prophets Jeremiah and Ezekiel…
I repeat…the intent of sanctifying Israel’s children and the New Covenant was to proselytize the entire Earth in the Gospel of Yeshua and Israel’s children would be a conduit through which the Great Commission (Matthew 28) would be accomplished but Israel rejected the New Covenant and Yeshua; therefore, the Father’s eschatological plan to “destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b) through the Gospel would NOT be stymied by Israel’s disobedience but the Father simply pivoted and passed the Great Commission to the Gentiles who will retain custody of the New Covenant Gospel until their numbers concerning the redeemed enter the Kingdom, then the end will come and Messiah’s Millennial Kingdom initiated.
There is a Jewish remnant that will be proselytized by the 144,000 sanctified Jewish witnesses spoken of by John, Messiah, in The Revelation and those of Jacob’s children who witness Messiah’s return at Mt. Olivette will also “believe” in Him whom they have pierced and enter the Millennial Kingdom…this will be the “remnant” spoken of by Isaiah and reiterated by Paul.
Yes, Jeremiah and Ezekiel speak of the New Covenant and Israel BUT Israel’s covenants with Yahweh have ALWAYS been predicated upon “obedience” (Deuteronomy 28)…Israel failed Yahweh and they failed Yeshua….God’s eschatological will must go forward irrespective of man’s choices.
