Holy Remnant Of Israel

Why do some people on these blogs believe that the NT is only for the Holy Remnant of Israel, and the rest of us are bound for hell? I thought that Christians are called to be the Bride of Christ.

Pray for me,

The law given to Israel allowed for Gentiles to become a part of the nation Israel through taking circumcision and following the law: (Exodus 12:48)
If Gentiles didn't proselytize and become a Jew they could receive blessing through blessing Israel as promised in Gen 12:3.
Luke 7:1-9 Jesus heals a Gentile friend of a centurion because of his blessings to the nation Israel including building a Jewish synagogue. After this event Jesus replied regarding these Gentiles, (Luke 7:9)

A good condensed post on the subject michael e. The "if" above is easily determined by the context words, and prophets. "Scattered",...chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people,
The word "gentile" is a latin vulgate created word.
It was never uttered by GOD through a prophet, Christ or Apostle. (being latin will be a self explanatory flag to seeker students in their study eventually)

The NT is basically for the Holy Remnant of Israel
Jesus commissioned the twelve to begin their ministry in Jerusalem (Luke 24:47). Then minister to Judaea, then Samaria, and finally Gentiles (Acts 1:8). Their message never got past Jerusalem. The rulers of Israel rejected the kingdom gospel by murdering Stephen (Acts 7:59).
Jesus called this believing remnant his little flock (Luke 12:32).
Peter writes to the believing remnant of Israel, the little flock, scattered by persecution (Acts 8:1).
If Peter was writing his epistles to the believing remnant of covenant Israel then it is not written to the Jew-Gentile mystery church.
Right division will cure many confusions caused by the covenant content of the book.

It is used of the original marriage to the entire house of Israel in the Old Covenant Testament. Divorce/putting away of the Northern House of Ten.
Prophecy too these same people and stated as why Christ came. Christ said he came to fulfill all the prophets had spoke.
Mat_26:56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.

Yes, but Jesus also quoted scripture back to Satan and the Pharisees. Thus, quoting scripture, by itself, is neither proof of correctness, nor proof of incorrectness.

Quoting these three scriptures together was clearly NOT right for hm, yet these scriptures remain valid in the context in which they were written.

Yes, but Jesus also quoted scripture back to Satan and the Pharisees. Thus, quoting scripture, by itself, is neither proof of correctness, nor proof of incorrectness. What matters is the scripture being quoted, within its original context.

I once read a story about a troubled young man who opened a Bible for advice. He opened three pages at random and got "Judas hung himself", "Do ye therefore likewise", and "What you must do, do quickly".

Quoting these three scriptures together was clearly NOT right for hm, yet these scriptures remain valid in the context in which they were written.

Who stand by the thousands against your logic doctrine of men. Your non alignment with scriptural witnesses chosen by GOD, makes you more visible here to me than your acidic rejection of scripture.
Isa_43:5-9 ...let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.

So what about the rest of the Bible? Doesn't that count? But it's not an "easy-to-use guide".

You wrote: No, God sends one loaf and all thousand are fed.

Yet, if most people who just read the Bible (without the help of others) and get confused by it, how are they getting fed? And if they need the help of others, it isn't "easy to use".

This is why God created parents who are to train up their child in the ways they should go.

I'm the least worthy here and expect nothing. Coming from the bottom I'm grateful that a man rebuked me for the doctrines of men I'd been taught 40 years. His rebuke came in the form of multiple scriptures...GOD's witnesses.
I wouldn't sell this discovered freedom and truth for any treasure here.
I have no problem letting scripture rebuke those that might, just might be sheep caught in the briers of doctrines of men. While these scriptures offend rather enlighten you...perhaps a "sheep" will "see" and "hear".
Your hardness just makes opportunitys for "sheep" scripture grazing.

No. I said it wasn't easy to use.

Otherwise, why are there so many who DON'T understand it (presumably "not truly in Christ")? When a thousand ask God for bread, does he send a box with 1 loaf and 999 stones?

When you read certain selected passages to chidren, they understand. But how many children have you given Bibles to, with no explanations, and expected them to read it from cover to cover and develop a cohesive understanding of it (and if so, how many succeeded?).

When I was a teenager, I decided to try to read the Bible from cover to cover to try to understand what it REALLY said (rather than what I had been spoonfed in Sunday school). I choked on all the begats and didn't finish.

First, these are available NOW, but weren't, even 30 years ago. So for two millenia, the Bible was NOT an easy-to-use guide. This is why there have been commentaries and other books written throughout all that time. Second, you can only look up a scripture if you already know what words are in it. Otherwise, you must consult a topical index, and such indices are, necessarily, interpretative works - i.e. works of men.

Christians ARE the church not a building or denomination ---Steveng on 10/14/15

You evade my questions sir.

You never answered my question "who is the Denominational churches" that you constantly belittle and bemoan.

The snippet of the post above shows what you have said, that Christians are not a building or a denomination. True. But may they be within one? May true Believers be within Denominations and buildings? So I ask you again:

Do you think real Believers go to Denominational churches and do you think it is okay to judge them?

###Why don't lazy, whiny monks spend some of their time researching the key words and provide scripture for their confusion and others. ###

My brother is a monastic at a Monastery in NM

I am parent with five kids, and even though I try to give my kids a good Christian education, plus keep the house clean, cook meals, do laundry, and so on, I don't do half as much as my brother. He prays (just prayer) at least five hours a day, plus the complete office that the monks CHANT through each day, plus work in the vineyard. He also spends some time on personal projects. At the present he is writing an art book on Christian Art in the 12th through 18th century.

"We are the bride and He is the bridegroom." Micha, Jesus being the bride groom is not in question. However, the way I understand it, His disciples, believers, are the children of the bride chamber and friends of the bridegroom. His bride, as I am given to understand, will be the New Jerusalem. Mat 9:15>John 3:29>Rev 21:9,10
Cluny, I did not understand the verse you quoted as relating to the bride of Christ even after reading it over and over. The verse was obviously addressed to the corinthians. Why would Paul as a believer, be jealous of other believers? And who was he to "espouse" anyone to anyone? The verse produces more questions than answers. Perhaps you could enlighten me.

His lesson is how to easily in seconds, it is to look up all the key words in scripture. His laziness stems from being able to research but unwilling. There is no other excuse.

I sometimes wonder if anyone reads the bible anymore. The Jews did indeed have the spirit:
Exodus 28:3
Exodus 31:3
Numbers 11:25-29
Judges 3:10
Judges 6:34
Judges 13:25
1 Samuel 16:14
2 Chronicles 15:1
Job 33:4
Isaiah 48:16
Isaiah 59:21
Isaiah 61:1
Ezekiel 3:24
Ezekiel 11:5
Micah 3:8, etc.

Monks do not do what the Lord has commanded. They do not do the lifestyle of the Lord.

///Leon, I do not understand about remnant of Israel.
---santimoy.kumar on 10/10/15///

Remnant means the remainder or what is left of "the people of God", i.e., true believers (Jew & Gentile). Many are Israel in name only, but their hearts (minds/souls) & daily practices are acts of disobedience far from the will of God.

The Jews had only the CREATOR to worship, they did not have "God" in His FULLNESS to worship (they did not have the TRINITY of God).....the Jews finally accepted Jesus their Messiah/Prince of Peace but never accepted the Wonderful Counselor/Holy Spirit.

>>>>>>Rev 1:1 to shew UNTO HIS SERVANTS things which must shortly come to pass

WE are SPIRIT-FILLED worshipers (having already received SALVATION FROM JESUS, we must go on to have the Wonderful Counselor as SONS of God, not slaves/servants).

It is true that the word "Jews" (the reference word for many different tribes has been confused) is used even for "those who say they are Jews but are not".

Jesus said that the scribes and Pharisees (PHAROAH-sees was from pagan Egypt) were CHILDREN OF HELL.

At any rate, WE TODAY are to understand and live what the Jews never knew or had ("THE TRUTH" Spirit-FILLED).

The JESUS dispensation iof God IN HIS FULLNESS includes "HOLY SPIRIT (the Jews never had this).

///I am confused by this.---santimoy.kumar on 10/9/15///

s.k. Do you understand the word IMMATURE? If not, it means to be half-learned, imperfect, inexperienced, undeveloped, etc. Basically, what I'm saying is, though many here are Christians, they're at various stages of growth. Regardless of one's physical age, many possess the understanding, temperament & knowledge of little children. They're no different, in nature, than people of other religious persuasions.

I hope that helps your understanding.

I am confused by this.
---santimoy.kumar on 10/9/15


Trav, what is your point?

Monk knows Christians are the Bride of Christ but some don't believe so.

You wrote a bunch of nonsense and only manage to come cross of insulting Monk.

As a Christian, you know you are wrong.

Debate and stop insulting and calling names.

Micha, please keep your 2 cents comment to yourself unless you are going to stand up for Monk.
I already know you hate me, but can you direct your attention to others just ONCE, instead of FEEDING your hatred.

...I thought that Christians are called to be the Bride of Christ.
---Monk_Brendan on 10/9/15

Why don't lazy, whiny monks spend some of their time researching the key words and provide scripture for their confusion and others.
Bride of Christ? Here is you an example monk.
1. Bride: 14 verses in scripture using this word.
2. Of: 18,201 times. 34,755 matches.
3. Christians: Hmmm found only once.
4. Christ (anointed): Found in 532 verses, 571 matches.
Now look these up in Hebrew or Greek. (Latin usually applicable to doctrines being changed/manipulated/hiding)
Expand your mind...bridegroom, marry, married, divorce, put away, for-ever, ever lasting, only, but, unto, Sheep, goats.
eSword... is free.
