Christ In You
Jesus Himself was the fulfillment of a promise made concerning Israel. For "Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world." Jesus is the mediator of the new and better covenant made with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. Act 13:23>Act 5:31>Tit 2:11>1Jo 4:14>Heb 12:24>Heb 8:8

Christ In You

"Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: [and] whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. [Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible,..And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead,.. Neither is there salvation in any other: Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life."

Relative to Israel, prophetic of Jesus, "When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt." The fulfillment, "When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son."
When Jacob, a descendant of Abraham, a descendant of Eber, of whom the Hebrew nation was named, was renamed Israel, it was given symbolically, and in the hebrew language the literal meaning of the name, as concerning Jacob, is "to prevail, and have power as a prince", as concerning Jesus, "he will rule as God".

Christ In You
"We are not placed into Israel, covenant.." "Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us," See Eph 2:11-22

Christ In You
"In Romans 9-11 Paul talks about who receives Israels promises. Romans 9:6 says that not every Israelite will receive what God promised to Israel."
Father has fulfilled all the old covenant promises made through Moses to the descendants of Israel, according to the flesh. See Jos 21:43-45>Jos 23:14.
It is the promise to Abraham, father of many nations, concerning his seed, which is Christ, the Israel of God, that is fulfilled under the new covenant.

Christ In You
"they are taught, that we become part of a spiritual Israel. But is this Biblical?" michael_e Is it? The olive tree is representative of Israel, the wild olive tree, the gentiles, and according to scripture the gentiles "were grafted in among them [Israel], and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree," which, if I understand the mystery, is Christ in us. "Salvation has come to the Gentiles". Gentiles in Christ are a part of His church. Making His Church a part of Israel, and Israel a part of His Church.

Christ In You
True Israel are the Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: 1Pet.1:2 And is addressed to a multitude of Nations verse 1.
They which are the children of the flesh, these [are] not the children of God: [Jew, Israelite or otherwise] but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. Rom 9:8
The Israel of God are those who also walk in the steps of our faithful father Abraham, and Jerusalem which is above, is free, and is the mother of us all.
There is a natural Israel, (to which Michael refers), which is a type, and there is the Spiritual Israel that that type foreshadows. See Gal. 6:1-18>Rom 9:6

Rich Man Lazarus
"I guess the author didn't think it was important enough to mention one way or other.---StrongAxe on 11/3/17"
If life after death was being referenced by the parable, his testimony would have been priceless concerning that. Personally I don't think he or anyone else could have kept the spender of "paradise" to themselves. And if they shared it, someone, would have written about it.

Blinded Gentile Eyes
I just came across this question again and would ask those who think that the Father has blinded anyone. Why would the Son work against The Father who sent Him? After all it was The Son, who came preaching recovery of sight to the blind. In Jhn 12:40 who do you suppose has blinded them, and who is He that will heal them if they convert? If the Father wanted them blind, they would remain blind. In John 12:46 Jesus proclaimed Himself "a light into the world, [and] that whosoever believes on [Him] should not abide in darkness." Does anyone out there honestly believe The LORD has caused anyone other than the fallen angels, who are confined by Him as prisoners of darkness, to walk in darkness? 2Cor 4:3,4

Is Left Behind Movie Correct
"Man figures a way to get good people into heaven - it took God to find a way to get sinners in.---Andrea on 9/23/07"
I love this statement. "Pro 16:23 - The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips." Amen

Who Is The AntiChrist
The anti-christ is he "Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped: so that he as God sits in the temple of God, Showing himself to be God. Whose coming is (according to) the (effectual operation) of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men." He is the son of perdition, and Satan is the only son that has already been sentenced to death. 2Thes. 2:3,4,9 Rev. 13:13

What Is The Curse Of Ham
Bryan the plight of the black man, the dehumanizing hate, prejudice attitudes, fear, and God complex that led to slavery and the current injustice that plague our race is the work of Satan carried out by his minions. The ignorance and intolerance that continues to be displayed by those who oppose the love that the Father intend to be extended one towards another is authored by the god of this world. The Father allows it bring up and out of us, all that is within us for our own examination, so that we as a people might know, acknowledge, and repent of that which opposes who we are in Him. Strongaxe if it's clear to you, then so be it. Who am I to argue your belief?

What Is The Curse Of Ham
Bryan Noah curse Canaan not all the descendants of Ham, I don't know how the scenario you've mentioned can be applied to that situation. This statement was intended to read "Ham wasn't cursed." is a false statement.".
