Genesis 35:11 “And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins”.
This is one of the verses people try to spiritualize by saying it means that other existing nations would become Jacob’s seed. This is not taught any where in scripture. How plain does it need to be when the text says “out of thy loins”? Let the scripture speak.
The word Company in “company of nations” comes from a Hebrew word that narrows it down to a select group of nations. Since God promised that Israel would become many nations we know those company of nations are made up of true physical Israelites.
There is never one time in all of the new and old testaments, that is the Greek and Hebrew texts, that God speaks of His people as all men from all nations in the entire world everywhere. It is not there.
The modern day Jews are not Biblical Israelites.
“For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.” John 13:15
Jesus Christ is our example in all things. We are to live a Christ like life. Here is one that I have rarely heard preached. How we are to behave toward those who hate Christ? Let us follow Christ’s example. He told those who hated him,
“Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”, John 8:43-44
“But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.” John 10:26
“Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate Yahweh? therefore is wrath upon thee from before Yahweh.” 2 Chronicles 19:2b
“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” 2 John 1:7-11
The idea that Jesus loves everyone and died for everyone has been posted a fair amount recently. It is a nice thought perhaps, but what is more important? Truth or Feelings?
Matthew 15:24 “But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
Consider that much of the whole world is out of order, a disorderly arrangement. It is full of sin and hatred for God. The word World in John 3 should read orderly arrangement or society. The orderly arrangement or society is God’s Kingdom. It does not include all men everywhere! Keep in mind that James says “the devils also believe, and tremble.” Here is what the Greek text really says in John 3:15-17.
“That a part of whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the orderly arrangement or [God’s] society, that he gave his only begotten Son, that the part of whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the orderly arrangement or society to condemn the orderly arrangement or society; but that the orderly arrangement or society through him might be saved.”
You know the Christian Bible is always right. It is not popular nor is it politically correct, but it is always God’s Word and thus correct. It really comes down to how long we will try to push man’s wisdom, a distorted view of scripture and ignore the Creator of all, the Potter. If you believe that Jesus loves everyone or that Jesus died for everyone then you have been taught to ignore quite a lot of scripture. You are politically correct. The theme of the entire scripture is different than what you have been taught. Did God say to be separate from those He Loves?
2 Corinthians 6:17a “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate (To set off by boundary), saith the Lord”.
So what is it going to take for people to finally acknowledge that the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Celtic, Scandinavian and related peoples are the true Israel people of scripture?
How about if the Jews admit it? Some of them have.
How about if preachers in Christian churches admit it? Some of them have.
How about if Christian Commentary writers admit it. Some of them have.
How about if the scripture itself proclaims it? It does. Some of it is hidden in the text by translators protecting existing church doctrine, but it is there.
There is no need for a man made spiritual Israel.
Isaiah 1:3 “The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.”
When the word is used for people, scripture defines the word Sheep as true physical Israel.
John 10:27 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me”.
Another Kingdom parable starts in Matthew 13:24. Christ plants a field with good seed. The good seed are the children of the Kingdom. The word Children is defined by scripture as Israel. The forever enemy of Christ is Edom.
Malachi 1:4d “They shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, the people against whom Yahweh hath indignation (enraged) for ever.”
Edom is found among modern Jewry as The Jewish Encyclopedia states. The enemy plants tares, weeds, in with the good seed, the wheat.
So at the harvest the weeds are gathered first to be bundled and burned up. The act of pulling up the weeds kill them because they are only bundled together. Then they are burned up. The weeds are the ones removed first. Some might say they are raptured.
Today the enemy of God has brought in weeds that Christ did not plant. They will be removed in the harvest.
Matthew 15:13 “But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.”
Notice that there is no attempt to reform, convert or make acceptable the weeds. They were weeds when they were planted and they were weeds when they were gathered up. The same is true of the enemy in that they are never asked to change.
Christ planted the children in the good ground. Today, preachers spend all of their time in the way, the stony soil and the soil with weeds. The good ground is going fallow. Get back and work in the good ground.
The modern day Jews are not Biblical Israelites.
In Matthew 21:33 Christ tells another parable. This is the one where the householder builds a vineyard and lets it out to husbandmen.
In the vineyard are grapes. Grapes are defined as Israel in Hosea. Those in control of the vineyard are evil Edomite Jewish Pharisees. The evil husbandmen killed the servants and the Son (Christ) of the householder, Yahweh God. The chief priests and the Pharisees perceived that Christ was talking about them.
They have much control and influence in today’s church. Churches ignore Christ’s warning about the leaven of the Pharisees. They have done this to the point that Christians now reject the true Gospel and accept the leaven of the Pharisees. Christians accept a very watered down and politically correct gospel. The Pharisees still destroy and kill the servants today.
Matthew 21:43 “Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.”
Scripture says that it is Israel who will bring forth the fruits of the Gospel of Christ. True Israel has done so for almost 2000 years.
In college one of my Bible teachers had the entire Bible memorized. In preaching he liked to rewrite a verse to show how people actually believe what it said as opposed to what the verse actually says.
One I have liked to do is to replace the word Perish in John 3:16 with “live forever in torture”. Some work better than others, but the following makes the point. This one concerns today’s anti-Christ Jews.
Genesis 12:3a “”And I will bless them that bless those Jews who hate Christ, and curse him that curseth those who are Anti-Christ””.
Besides the fact that Abraham was not a Jew, Christ said my [Israelite] sheep hear my voice and follow me. There is no “maybe someday” in all of scripture. True Israel has followed Christ for almost 2000 years.
Many Protestant churches teach that the Jews have a special way into heaven without Christ. When they get there they will rule over Christians.
So they teach that Jews who hate Christ will rule over Christians who love and follow Christ.
So why be a Christian? According to the churches Jews can be evil and still rule in heaven.
Who thinks this stuff up? The doctrine sounds very Talmudic. It certainly isn’t Biblical.
Why do you believe the Jews are Israelites? Because they say so? The scripture tells us exactly who is Israel, no spiritual Israel required. Do you believe scripture?
Many times the scripture uses the phrase many nations. It has been common to understand that phrase in a general way to include various nations of the world or all of the different nations of the world.
Let me suggest that the context of that phrase has been ignored. Let me suggest that if one carefully checks the Greek and the context that at times that phrase does not represent a general world wide group of all nations.
We are told three times in scripture that Israel would fulfil these prophecies.
Genesis 17:4-6, “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. And your name no longer shall be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham. For I have made you a father of many nations. And I will make you very fruitful, exceedingly. And I will give you for nations. And kings shall come out of you.”
Genesis 35:11 “And God said to him, I am God Almighty; be fruitful and multiply. A nation and a company of nations shall be from you. And kings shall go forth from your loins.”
Genesis 48:19 “And his father refused and said, I know, my son, I know. He also shall be a people, and he shall become great. But his younger brother shall become greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.”
In Genesis 48:19 the word translated multitude actually means a fullness of nations. Interesting. Those are all very physical promises. Spiritualizing those verses adds to or changes the original meaning. To do so is another gospel.
With people falsely believing the Jews are Israel, this prophecy has been ignored and forgotten just like the promise of a new promised land outside of the old home of Israel, 2 Samuel 7:10.
My suggestion is that when you see the phrase many nations in the new testament, consider that the many nations are the nations of Israel. Yes, all of the instances of the phrase many nations are consistent with the context and prophecy above.
John 6:44 “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.”
This is a some what ignored verse. Preachers and missionaries like to brag about how many people they have saved. They tend to ignore this verse. We are to preach, but only God can give the increase. It is not a real increase when incentives are offered.
1 Corinthians 3:7 “So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.”
So for almost 2000 years God has seen to it that He has given the increase to one people. For the most part only one people have followed the Christian religion more than any other people. There are many scriptures that support who are the true physical people of God based on what they would do, such as take the Gospel to the world while forming many nations. Has anyone wondered why there are so few Jews who claim Christ and will state that Christ is the Son of God?
Consider that the world is up side down and that the Jews are not Israelites. God, the Potter, has not called them. Christ told them they can not hear His voice and follow Him.
John 10:26 “But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.”
Jacob’s brother Esau, who is Edom, was at the time of Christ and is also today found in Jewry. It is Edom, who is also known as Mount Seir, who is the the subject of Ezekiel 35.
