trav, I used the term "Spiritual Israel" to define destinction between the nation of Israel and those individuals chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world.

You do make a good point in that I should have used a biblical term such as "God's elect", "chosen of God" or "the called" rather than Spiritual Israel.

I was trying to keep you from getting confused due to the fact that the word Israel can mean the old testment prophet Jacob, the nation of Israel, God's elect, and Jesus Christ.

Is this better or are you still confused?

\\ And yes before the flood of Noah the earth was perfect not tilted like it is now.\\

Bryan, since you tell us you have been told the mysteries by Jesus, why did God allow the earth's axis to be tilted after the Flood? Did you know we wouldn't have different seasons otherwise?

Please explain.

If you can't, again, the Lord rebuke you.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

1st Corinthians 10:26 The earth is the Lord's and the fullnest there of. Luke don't argue against the Gospel it's s lose, lose for you. And yes before the flood of Noah the earth was perfect not tilted like it is now. And it will be perfect again just the way God made it.
---Bryan on 7/6/14


Dear Bryan,
please for forgive me again for disagreeing with your answer. God create man to give His glory, not so that He could have a perfect planet.
The planet was never perfect. If had being perfect, it would have never fallen. Perfect things do not fail. God is perfect, He never fails.
Our destiny as believers is not to be here on earth, there is destruction coming, and we will not be here for it. My hope in Christ tells me I am not. Agape.

Trav, are the sheep God's people?

---trey on 4/16/14

You are trying to paint a picture using only the elements you approve of in painting.
Spiritual Israel is not a word or concept used in scripture.
Start with the fathers, then with prophets, who is the context of their prophecy?
Do they all agree?
Does Christ argue with them or change what they prophecied?
Rom 9:4 Who are Israelites, to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises,
Rom 9:5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

I do believe some here want salvation only for Israel because of how the interpret Scripture.
---Luke on 4/19/14

"some here", want all scripture to be used instead of piecemeal scripture that has no witnesses. In this way truth is established.
If Israel is mentioned 2,318 times in scripture. Jacob 345 times, additionally allegorical names would be extra.
Now if GOD chose a people....it's probably not wise to ignore these people. Since all prophecies are in regard to them. If they are sheep, and I am a dog. Guess what....I wanna be the best sheep dog wagging. Woof-woof.

Mat_15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

//Gal 3:28 -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.//

Similar passage is found in (Romans 10:12,13)
"There is no distinction between Jew and Greeks, for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call upon Him, for whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved"

I do believe some here want salvation only for Israel because of how the interpret Scripture. But salvation is for anyone who believes by faith through the power of God.

//Mat_23:31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets//

You justify what you said with the words Jesus spoke to the Pharisees and scribes. They were hypocrites.

What the prophets spoke was truth. How individuals "apply" that Truth can be very different from one person to another, from one denomination to another.
Many times what applied to Israel, does not apply to the church today. Yet individuals apply all of them many times.
What you say could be wrong, and what others say could be right. Unless a person belongs to a home church who does not follow any denom. and only follows Christ, they too use their own applications. No one is exempt. Agape

Dear Trav,
My point was that there is nobody who I have known who is self taught who knows the whole Bible without help from someone.
---Luke on 4/16/14

No disagreement from me. But, the only someones who are authorized of GOD to validate anyone else teachings are the Prophets and Apostles.
I'll listen to you or read many things of others but validate them by GOD's witnesses in scripture.

No benefits acrue arguing with Prophets. It's been historically tried and found unfavorable by the opposition.

I ask...if denom churches don't believe them....are they disposing them?

Mat_23:31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
---Trav on 4/16/14


Trav, you say that my understanding is incorrect.
Mt 25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
For further clarification please read Romans 9:6.
---trey on 4/16/14

I didn't choose Israel...GOD did. (Deu_10:15) He is GOD. He can do what he wants too. You married? Your family is yours. No other man should Lord over yours.
You're researching scripture for key points ....but, you are stopping short of seeing some of it. Romans 9:7-8 explain verse 6.
Bonding to this are the hundreds of prophecies, and promises given in the O.T. in confirmation.

Mt 25:45 defines the contrast of Sheep and Goats.
---Trav on 4/16/14


Trav, you say that my understanding is incorrect. Let me give you a portion of scripture to ponder.

In Matt 25 Christ tells of his second coming when he will divide his sheep from the goats. The sheep will be delivered to heaven and the goats will depart into everlasting punishment.

Mt 25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
Mt 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Now, if only Israel and Judah are sheep then all the Gentiles are goats.

Think about it.

For further clarification please read Romans 9:6.

Dear Luke

Excellent point. We need teachers. But the points about parables etc. is usually taught in schools to children.

But doctrine does require us to know the Bible. But not all who say the Bible teach what the Bible actually says.

We must read the Bible and pray for the HOLY SPIRIT to guide and teach us. We must compare scripture with scripture and not just accept what a person who says they know it all like the RCC did.

GOD be with you. Agape

Dear Trav,
My point was that there is nobody who I have known who is self taught who knows the whole Bible without help from someone. Everyone has been taught by someone. Unless they picked up a Bible, and the Holy Spirit revealed the truth that is written in it, and taught them what metaphors meant, parables meant, what is figures of speech and what isn't, what is literal interpretation and what is not. People can come to salvation just by reading the word of God. But in order to know Spiritual truth, that can only be done by the Spirit, who teaches many to help us understand Scripture.
We are not in bondage to the Roman Catholic church anymore. Only their truth was allowed for centuries, and most of what they taught was wrong. Agape

I wonder if Jesus first taught those harlots and publicans ..... the meaning of methaphors and allegories?
---Nana on 4/15/14

Had similar thoughts, but remember wondering who to trust at the beginning of my journey. Answer was simple, but still had to be pointed out to me. GOD's Prophets verify everything....foretold and fulfilled. Reason before for the need, the need itself and cure for the need. Christ even uses their allegory's, metaphors etc. Sheep still mean sheep....even today. Except for those who argue with the prophets.

Directions are given for all the above. Few search them...including myself for over 40 years.
1. Ask the only Teacher(Mat 23:8 But be not ye called Rabbi: ) .
2. Don't argue against scriptural Prophets (Act_15:15 And to this agree the words of the prophets...),
.

My own observation is pause at three letter words.... consider carefully. "his", "and", "but", "own".

Dear Trav,
Steve Wohlberg is a great writer concerning biblical end times. Of course he is not perfect as no one is. God reveals His word to us through many great man in history. Of course many were never inspired and teach wrong, but God is always revealing His Truth even when there is wackos who teach wrong.
I know of no one who has it all figured out going by Bible only. So God has gifted many writers, pastors, teachers in Bible study to help others how to read and understand His Word.

but the day has not come for Israel, but has come for the Gentiles.
---Luke on 4/11/14

True...in proper context. Also the source of most scriptural error in understanding. Nations, people, heathen,foreign nations, animals and locust are what the Old Testament word "Goy" means. Gentile is a latin word, replacing a hebrew word, that you are eager to claim for yourself. With several different meanings you applied one. Insert context/multi-witnessed meaning and you will find that Israel is the still married Judah/ Benjamin and Nth House of ten is the divorced/nations/ethnos who lost the married name Israel....even though they are still the lineage. And Covenanted Heb 8:8/Jer 31:31.

Dear Trav,
but the day has not come for Israel, but has come for the Gentiles. What was spoken of Israel, has been fulfilled by Christ.
Jesus, after healing a large number of people, He "warned them not to make Him known, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, "Behold, My Servant, whom I have chosen, My Beloved in whom My soul is well pleased.."
Matthew in Hosea 11:1 quotes Isaiah 42:1-3, which, in its original context, refers to God's servant" which was Israel ..My Servant" Isaiah 41:8. Once again, under inspiration from the Holy Spirit, the first writer in the New T. said that Isaiah 41:1-3 was being fulfilled by God's Servant Jesus Christ." Agape

Dear Trav,

I do because we are taught and adopt non scriptural denominational doctrines when scripture says something entirely different.
Blindness is GOD's area to cure. Recognition of blindness and search for cure is a personal area. If one argues with Prophets and Apostles.....it is not them that are faulty.
Your N.Testament is:
Heb_8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
Jer_31:31....I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

The New Testament quotes the Old Testament as a source of authority and truth.

2Ti 3:16
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Which means the Old Testament can be used for doctrine. But it must be correctly understood.

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

Dear Trav,
You are quoting things from the past. The New Testament does quote passages concerning Israel and what happen to them. They should be an example to us.
Israel trials through history were fulfilled by Jesus Christ.
Israel was "a vine" God brought "out of Egypt" (Psalm 80:8). God said, " But thou, Israel, art My servant...the seed of Abraham" (Isaiah 45:4). Again, God said through Isaiah, "Behold, My Servant whom I uphold, My Elect One in whom My soul delights, I have put My Spirit upon Him, He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles. He will not cry out,... and smoking flax He will not quench. He will spring forth justice for truth" Isaiah 42:1-3. Agape

You help further misunderstanding of scripture.
The Northern House of Israel was put away/Divorced. This is the middle wall between Judah/Benjamin and them.

Christ death ended the first covenant and started the second. This is why Heb 8:8 says "house of Israel...AND Judah".
The two sticks of Israel, in Ezekiel 37:16 through 37:28.

Dear Trey,
that is what I believe. The other sheep Jesus talked about are the Gentiles. As I said before, you are not going to get an ok from any Jew, or those who follow the Jewish traditions. They, I believe want salvation only for them. That no body else is included. The very thing Jews believed at the time.
But Jesus on the cross did tear down the wall that separated both. One of the mysteries was that the Gentiles would be included in Salvation.

Gentiles is a Roman/Latin word.
Translated NT meaning is Nations or Ethnos. Judean usage, usually referring to the divorced Nth house nation of Israel. Judah who was positionally jealous...and not put away/divorced.
What no preacher has ever told you is that GOD married all Israel the house of 12 and divorced/put away the Nth house of ten. Divorced Israel was scattered....to be reunited. Heb 8:8, Jer 31:31, tells explicitly who the Old and New Covenant is too...the prophets explain why. To those who listen too them.
Eze 37:16 .... one stick, .... for all the house of Israel his companions:
Eze 37:17 ... they shall become one in thine hand.

Dear Richard,
it is my believe that those who oppose the Gentiles as sheep, or those who are Jews or those who follow the Jewish traditions.
