A supposed child of Jacob asked the following: “Do you not find it strange that the people who know God’s law the best are less likely to believe in this new thing [the Gospel] than people who barely know it at all?”
That’s due to self-righteousness and pride on Israel’s part and due the Jewish Curse for rejecting their Messiah before Pilate (Romans 11; Matthew 27:25). Israel’s children falsely believe that their sanctification through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, qualifies them as children of Yahweh by heritage when, from the beginning, Elohim has demonstrated to humanity that “faith” is the KEY to His heart and that He is not a respecter of persons.
The Gospel of Yeshua is NOT a “new thing” but was ordained “before Time began” (2 Timothy 1:8-10) as Elohim’s “battle strategy” “to destroy the works of the devil” via Messiah (1 John 3:8b; Genesis 3:15-21). Elohim originally desired to set-apart a people group for His eschatological plan from the Adamic-Noahic generations but they fell prey to demonic influence and had become so defiled that He eradicated all but eight and began anew with Noah (Genesis 6).
Abraham-Isaac-Jacob were His second-attempt to sanctify a people group through whom Elohim would chronicle His words and further His eschatological will, introduce His Messiah, and destroy the works of the Devil through the Gospel; in fact, this sanctification of Israel was reasoning for Sinai, the written code, to counter the pagan influence that inundated the Tribes; this, as a bulwark against a repeat of the failures of the Adamic and Noahic generations. Sinai was given specifically to Israel’s children and sojourners with them as Elohim desired to move forward eschatologically void Satan’s paganistic influence.
Messiah, Israel, the Great Commission,
Messiah came specifically to the lost sheep of Israel (Matthew 15:24) to proselytize them in His Gospel so that through Israel’s children, Yahweh would fulfill His eschatological promise to Abraham (Genesis 12:3b) via the Great Commission (Matthew 28); but tragically, Israel’s children clung to the Law and rejected faith; Israel’s children desired a political leader, a national king not a Spiritual Messiah; consequently, in obedience to Satan (John 8:44), they rejected and murdered their Messiah on a tree while insisting that His blood be upon them and their children; therefore, the Gentile Nations, by default, became Elohim’s messengers concerning the Great Commission and the Gentiles will remain His messengers until their fullness has entered the Kingdom (Romans 11:25); then, the tribulation era will be in full swing and a partial resurgence of Israel’s children be center stage during and subsequent the Tribulation with the initiation of Messiah’s Millennial Kingdom; Israel’s glory in this Millennial Age will NOT be for Israel’s benefit but for the Glory of Yeshua who endured continued rejection by this sanctified people group but attained victory by means of selfless, steadfast, love that overcame the Evil One at Golgotha.
Israel, under judgment but Hope endures,
The only Hope for Israel’s children to be named among the remnant that inherits eternal life is the HOPE of Yeshua as Messiah by faith (Isaiah 10:22; Romans 9:27; Romans 10; Galatians 2:16).
