Except no one can find a verse saying THE TRUE ISRAEL US THE CHURCH.
---kathr4453 on 10/30/21


When a Gentiel accepts Jesus as their Savior they become a child of Abraham and an Israelite.

Unlike the false Dispensationalism.
---Samuelbb7 on 10/24/21

Dispensationalism is false, a worn out cult.
There was no word Gentile uttered by any Prophet, Christ or Apostle. It did not exist. It is a Roman, Latin Vulgate concoction.
Original Hebrew, Greek gives understanding who is being spoken to in scripture. Seeking truth do the research. Largest part of Israel was scattered among all ethnos nations. To be regathered.

Amo 9:9. For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.

Exactly. While Another lady here scripturally unauthorized, attempts unsuccessfully, to teach a seed theory false doctrine. Sounds plausible until research is done on word seed. Seed is Zera in Hebrew and Sperma in Greek. It refers to a genetic line Israel. As does the word Fathers, Brethren.

Heb 9:28So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many, ****

It says Many above. Not all. Only Israel had the Law, divorced under Law, Redeemed from the Law.

When someone becomes saved they become a son of God. Abraham's seed , not seeds as of many but SEED is referring to Jesus Christ.

Abraham was not an Israelite. Neither was Isaac. Only Jacob was renamed Israel. And an Israelite are those who are physically connected with the 12 tribes of Jacob, aka Israel.

Otherwise you could say Ishmael, Esau, Lot, etc were Israelites being physically connected to Abraham. They were not.

No scripture says we become an Israelite when we are saved. We become a son of God through Jesus Christ. John 1:1-17.

You are exactly right. Church, means The called out assembly and it will be Israel. Both houses of Israel. This what was prophesied, why Christ came, why Apostles went out.
Why New Covenant has two parties listed, the House of Israel AND Judah. Heb 8:8 Jer 31:31.

Eze 37:20the sticks whereon thou
writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.

---Trav on 10/25/21




Samuel, when a gentile is saved they don't become an Israelite. They become A NEW CREATURE, NEITHER MALE OR FEMALE, BOND OR FREE, JEW OR GREEK. Why, because those IN CHRIST are sons of God, and God is not an Israelite. No where, and especially reading Galatians where the Judiazers wanted to subject Gentiles to submit to Jews Paul would have no part of it. Even Jesus is no longer seen after the flesh. Those in Christ and in the Spirit are no longer seen after the flesh in Gods eyes.

The disciples first called themselves CHRISTIANS, not Israelites.

---kathr4453 on 10/25/21


When a Gentiel accepts Jesus as their Savior they become a child of Abraham and an Israelite. Just because a person is Jewish does not make them a child of GOD. The true Israel is the church as Covenant theology teaches. Unlike the false Dispensationalism. that is my opinon.

According to Understand the Bible: A Reader's Guide and Reference, Harris, 1980 and

I prefer Truth declared by Prophets, Christ over suppositions.
Truth is not punished. Your unsupported by prophets False is punished.
In an Ocean of Scripture written by Israel too Israel you grab a straw to float your false doctrines.

Lev 20:26And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.
Rom 9:5Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

Trav:

I personally don't care. It just speaks to why you quote scriptures that may not apply to you.

If YOU "don't know", then by your own logic, YOU might not be a sheep either. Why doesn't this concern you?

I am not BIOLOGICALLY of Israel (that I know of). But that doesn't matter, because "In Christ, there is no male nor female, no Jew nor Greek". Biological descent is not a requirement of the New Covenant.

Blanket vague accusations are meaningless. You constantly condemn what you think I believe. Pick ONE specific subject that you take issue with, and let's discuss it.

With regards to Romans 9, you admitted you aren't of Israel, so how is that relevant to you?
---StrongAxe on 9/23/21

I said I did not know.
What does it matter if I am or not? Truth is always relevant except to the hardened.
Youre the one that says you are not Israel. Therefore not a Sheep.
I believe you. I find no laws in your demoheart.
Truth matters. Only Truth. There is only one Truth. You dont see or believe Truth. You cant. Something I cannot fix. Nor would now.

Rom 9:18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.

I posted scripture. You must of seen
you in scripture. Love that word discern.
I have every right to discern. I am of full age. A scriptural meat eater. I discern for myself if it bites, barks, promotes political platforms of dogs its a woofy.

Heb 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Mat 15:26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
Mat 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

That may gives you the ability to discern the difference between horses, cows, and dogs. That does not give you the RIGHT to call human beings dogs.

Once again, what possible justification do you have for calling ME a dog?

With regards to Romans 9, you admitted you aren't of Israel, so how is that relevant to you?

Matthew 7:
1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: ...

I have every GOD given right to recognize any animal in the Kingdom of GOD for what it is.

No, YOU DO NOT.
---StrongAxe on 9/22/21

Ha. But, I do and always will. I spent most of my life around Ranches and Farms. Rode Bulls, Horses not dogs. It does not take Judge or Jury to identify a dog. Takes personal judgement not to hang with or listen to a dog. Sheep are much more pleasant to visit with. Sheep are blessed in scripture. Dogs, sometimes bite the scriptural hand that could feed them.
Rom 9:4 Who are Israelites, to whom pertaineth the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises,

You wrote: I have every GOD given right to recognize any animal in the Kingdom of GOD for what it is.

No, YOU DO NOT. Jesus said, "Judge not, lest ye be judged". Yet you totally ignore this, instead taking a power he alone possesses, and presume to pass judgment on others. By doing so, you bring judgment down upon yourself.

I have REPEATEDLY said that I find abortion tragic, and I have REPEATEDLY show alternatives that drastically lower the number of abortions, yet you have NEVER ONCE addressed these.

That I showed ways that reduce abortion yet you ignore them is very telling. It shows your objection is NOT based on saving lives, but rather in condemning the women who have them.

I have every GOD given right to recognize any animal in the Kingdom of GOD for what it is. Why the Bible instructs Sheep Christians to beware.
You dont claim to be a Sheep.
You proudly support by defense thereby promote abortion advocates, deviant sexual platforms. Vile Imposter.

Mmmmm authority. Wisdom. You are a legend in your own mind. 10 years ago you couldnt put two sentences together succinctly. Now you are an authority to tell us what is a dog? Ha. Bark, yip, nip run. Its a dog.
You started this little game you cant win. Storms of low self esteem. You want to be the answer man. See, problem is we research the internet and know where you get most of your Yellow Dog propaganda and one sided history of a country you are a foreigner in. The Bible is the authorized guide to what is a dog, real simple. More than one meaning. We don't need you to explain. You hate that huh.

Yes, but remember that Jesus said, Judge not, lest ye be judged. Nobody gave you the authority (let alone the wisdom) to proclaim that someone else is a dog, or a "grievous wolf".

YOU are the one here who is constantly baring his teeth, attacking people, and accusing people. Look in the mirror.

When I argue with you, it is because I take issue with what you SAY. When you argue with me, you take issue with who and what I AM. These are personal attacks that have no business in any kind of reasoned discussion.

First place. This is a warning in scripture for Sheep. Good people laws in their heart and mind people. It doesnt offend Christian Sheep. Evil workers and the concision are mentioned too.

It's also necroposting - posting to a blog that has been dead for quite a while (dead for 12 years, except for one comment, a month ago).

It's not a matter of seeing but believing and if you have never experienced these powers don't search for them thank God you never have to.

If however you do,

Know This:
At first you think your hearing and seeing things and if correct you have to deal with them because they don't just go their there to oppress or possess and unless you command them to leave while they are present you won't expel them from your home if you don't deal with them active it's pointless praying to an empty room with no presence.

There are different strengths of them and different period times of fasting and prayer some instant some weeks you need to expel them but All go through the name of Jesus!

Welcome to the Real World! The truth is that evil exists. I mean to say that it is real. Not someone doing evil. I mean someone wishing evil. And, sometimes, you may feel that no matter how much you pray and seek God, you know when you wake up in the night sweating with a terrible feeling over you that evil is real and is putting its evil torment upon you.

That is where we need to see the realness of God. Can He really overcome this real evil? I believe He can but will he? That's what I want to know. Don't just quote scripture. I want to see God defeat this real world evil that affects peoples' lives and their peace of mind and spirit.

By being a light in a dark place. A light is a passive force. It does not have to do or say anything. It is, by its very presence something that dispells darkness. Matthew 5:14, "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid."

By living a life where the Love of God flows through us. A life says more than words. A life that those around watch, and see that there is something different about you, and they want what you have. Sometimes we get caught with our words, and then when we fall, they only laugh. I believe Love is the answer. Love even to the most ungodly in the workplace!

Mimi, I've tried to figure out my thoughts on why I wrote what I did in regards to casting things out, and all I can say is that I used the wrong terminology. I do believe we can cast out demons in Jesus' name. I don't however think we should go around rebuking evil in our own strength. Hope that helps you understand where I'm coming from.

Now people seek prayers for the sick, advice etc...from the 12 of us. Many have been witnessed too. I will live forever due to brave lifestyle of another. Preaching the gospel either in our words or our actions is I believe the greatest rebuke of evil.
