The Followers Of Christ Are God’s Chosen People
The evil one has caused the followers of Christ to not realize who they are, God’s Chosen People.
The remnant has always been the Chosen One’s. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, Daniel, the prophets, etc., all trusted by faith that the promised Messiah would atone for their sins.
The vast majority of the Israelites chose to worship other gods and were not saved.
John the Baptist, the disciples who were of the House of Israel and the House of Judah, Paul the Apostle, the 3,000 Jews who were saved on Pentecost, etc., all trusted by faith in the atoning work of Christ on the cross.
The vast majority of the Jews rejected Him as their Messiah and were lost.
Today the remnant believes in Christ’s atoning work alone, but the majority of people reject Him and are lost.
Jews forbid one another to read the New Testament, so they blind themselves to the truth about their Messiah.
There has always been a remnant who believed. The only thing that has changed is that Jesus offered His New Covenant, where He put His law in our minds and wrote it on our hearts. His remnant, His Chosen People, have always trusted by faith.
Everything that was promised to Abraham and his descendants is offered to them in the New Covenant.
A remnant has always believed by faith and were saved. The rest tried to be saved by the law and they were lost. That’s true of the Israelites, the Jews, and Gentiles today.
The promises that were made to Abraham are ultimately to those who believe by faith, not his physical descendants.
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, Daniel, etc. all believed that the Messiah would come and atone for their sins. We look back on that event.
Psalm 73:1 tells us that the true Israel is made up of those who have a clean heart, who are forgiven because they have a covenant relationship with the Father.
“Truly God is good to Israel, to such as are of a clean heart.“
Why do Christians focus on Jews in Israel, when the Word of God says that Jesus made both – Jews and gentiles, one church?
Ephesians 2:14-22 “For He Himself is our peace, who has made both (Jew and Gentile) one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”
Romans 2:28-29 tells us that a Jew is one inwardly, whose heart is circumcised.
“For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.”
Romans 9:6-8 says Abraham’s fleshly descendants ARE NOT the children of God.
“For they are not all Israel who are of Israel, nor are they all children because they are the seed of Abraham; but, “In Isaac your seed shall be called.” That is, those who are the children of the flesh, these are NOT the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.”
Galatians 3:7 tells us that ONLY those who are of faith are the children of God.
“Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham.”
Galatians 3:16 tells us that the seed of Abraham is Jesus Christ.
“Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say,“And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “and to your Seed,” who is Christ.”
Galatians 3:28-29 tells us that followers of Christ (Jew and Gentile) are Abraham’s seed who receive the promises made to Abraham.
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Paul is clearly telling us that true Israel, true Jews, believe by faith, and so inherit the promises made to father Abraham.
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9
Everyone who believes in Christ by faith, are the Chosen People of God. They will inherit Holy Jerusalem when Christ returns.
The promise is yet to be fulfilled. It has not been fulfilled by Zionist Israel, which was created by the enemy to deceive the world.
God said that He would bless Abraham, not the modern state of Israel.
Please stop manipulating the Word of God by inserting the name Israel in it!
The verse reads “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
God’s declaration in Genesis 12:3 was to Abraham, who was neither an Israelite nor a Jew, as they were descendants of his grandson Jacob/Israel.
Abraham was a Hebrew from Ur in Babylon. God gave him that assurance as He told him to leave Ur and go to another place, which was a bold step which took a lot of faith.
Besides that it can’t just apply to the Jews, because the tribe of Judah is only one of the twelve tribes.
