Did Elohim remove the New Covenant’s Gospel from Israel and give that Covenant to the Gentiles or did the Gospel Covenant belong to the Gentiles all along?
Elohim removed the New Covenant from Israel in response to Israel’s unbelief, their murder of Messiah and insistence that Messiah’s blood be upon them and their children (Matthew 27:25); overwhelmingly, Elohim’s covenants with Israel were predicated upon National obedience (Deuteronomy 28); in fact, the Gospel is the default of Elohim’s original plan in the Genesis narrative; that is, a sinless humanity, eternal life, as an example to both the fallen and faithful angelic creation of the benefits, the necessity, for obedience; this, as Elohim endeavored to restore peace and holiness to His Kingdom, destroy the works of the Devil (1 John 3:8b), while simultaneously maintaining volitional love and relationship with His treasured, faithful, angelic creation; unfortunately, man “chose” a different path and the Gospel was ordained “before Time began” (2 Timothy 1:8-10) as a potential default, an alternative response, to man’s failures; in this, Elohim Himself succeeded where man failed.
Elohim’s eschatological plan subsequent Adam’s fall was to set-apart a people group through whom He would “destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b) through His own selfless love (Genesis 3:21) but the Adamic and Noahic generations fell into unconscionable demonically influenced defilement; therefore, Elohim refused to set-apart a people group from those wicked generations through whom He would introduce His Messiah to the World; therefore, Elohim destroyed all but eight by water and He began anew through Noah and Noah’s family; in fact, it is particularly interesting to note that Elohim was distraught, sorry, grieved, that He had made man upon the Earth (Genesis 6) at that violent, debased, juncture in Time.
The promised Messiah,
With much patience, Elohim brought forth His Messiah through Noah, Shem, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (Israel); specifically, Jacob’s son, Judah; Elohim desired to fulfill His promise to Abraham (Genesis 12:3b) through Israel’s children; therefore, Elohim in Messiah came specifically to the “lost sheep of Israel” (Matthew 15:24) to proselytize them in the Gospel message but Israel’s children via their own volition failed Elohim by rejecting His Messiah and the Gospel in lieu of pursuing self-righteousness through Torah Law (Romans 10); therefore, Elohim honored Israel’s free will choice and pivoted and has used the Gentile Nations (non-Jew/not related to Israel) to take His Gospel to the World in preparation for the impending Tribulation Era, the Millennial Reign, Judgment, the New Jerusalem (Romans 11:25).
The Gospel, Free Will observed, articulated,
Elohim has faithfully honored free will infused within both His angelic and human creation; this, by necessity, as love and relationship with the Father could not exist void volition; that is, the freedom to choose to love our Creator or deny Him; this, as intimacy is completely reliant upon free will/volition.
Elohim has never violated the necessity for “free will” but through His omnipotence, Elohim has worked through and around both the angelic and man’s free will choices to accomplish His perfect eschatological will; this, while successfully “destroying the works of the Devil” through self-less love demonstrated by Messiah at Golgotha (1 John 3:8b; John 19:30).
Conclusion – Immutability
Does Elohim change (Malachi 3:6)? No, but mankind does and Elohim responds accordingly always with His eschatological plan in focus and that eschatological plan is the restoration of holiness and order in His Kingdom, holiness and order disrupted by a rebellious cherub angel; this, before Time began, this rebellious scenario as the initiator of the temporary Realm of Time, matter, the human genome, as a temporary physical repository for an unfathomable spiritual war that rages through us and around us, daily; this spiritual war, the resultant of free will; ultimately, the Lion from the Tribe of Judah is victorious irrespective of man’s free will choices and man’s failures due to the sin-nature inherited from our father, Adam (Revelation 5:5; Romans 5:12; 1 John 5:19). Everyone who believes-trusts in Messiah Jesus as their Lord will share in Elohim’s victory, forever (John 3:16).
