Old vs New

Oh, but that is old testament stuff.

Really? What did Paul say about the old testament?

Romans 1:2 "Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures". 
2 Timothy 3:16-17 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."

Churches that throw away the Law of God tend to acknowledge, then ignore those verses. The attitude of disregard for the older part of scripture is very prevalent among those who claim to be only new testament Christians only. The scripture teaches one to be a whole Bible Christian.

Matthew 5:17, Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

What did Christ fulfill?

Luke 24:44 "And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me."

Christ fulfilled what was prophesied for Him to perform. Many Christians have been taught to read Matthew 5:17 as if it said, “I am not come to destroy, but to end or destroy.” The words that were actually inspired to be written are for our understanding. Don’t let someone destroy your understanding of what God wrote.

Without the Law, Deception is Easy

Many churches teach that God’s Law is done away. Here is what Scripture says about that.

Proverbs 28:4 "They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them."

God allows people and churches to be deceived.

2 Thessalonians 2:11 "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie."

They praise the wicked, those who are anti-Christ. Pay attention to who the churches, the news or the world have told you to hold up as special. Do they refuse Christ as Lord? Do they spit when they hear the name of Christ? Are they anti-Christ? Do you know for sure? You better check it out before you support them or you will be counted guilty with them.

Why is it easy for churches to mislead people? Because they have done away with the Law of God.

Don’t Throw Away Your Degree

Luke 16:31 "If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone rises from the dead."

Also Christ said,

John 4:46-47 "For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?"

This is a judgment against churches that teach against God’s perfect Law of liberty.

James 1:25 "But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

It is the Law and the Prophets, the Schoolmaster, that leads one to Christ. Don’t throw away your degree. Christ didn’t redeem us from the Law, but the curse of the Law, the judgment of death.

Galatians 3:13 "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree".

Once again it is very important to read the meaning of the words and not someone else’s idea.

Peter Wrote to Israelites

1 Peter 2:9 "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light".

Previously I quoted 1 Peter 2:9 and showed how the highlighted words were defined by scripture as Israelites only. Peter wrote to Israelites.

1 Peter 1:1-2  "Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied."

In the above quote “strangers scattered” in the Greek means “resident foreigners of the dispersion”. These were Israelites who were dispersed by God to Assyria and Babylon and later escaped those captivities. In verse two scripture defines the word “elect”.

Isaiah 45:4a "For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name".

Foreknowledge is important and refers only to Israel.

Romans 8:29 "For 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."

The mention of the “sprinkling of the blood” of Jesus would only be understood by a people familiar with the Mosaic sacrifices now covered by Christ.

Peter also mentions inheritance, the prophets and old testament quotes, the significance of which would not be understood by any without a history in Israel.

1 Peter, as well as 2 Peter, was written to Israelites of the dispersion. The modern day Jews are not Israelites.

Definitions

All the phrases and words shown here are directly tied to Israel. To make these words about any other people destroys the continuity of scripture and the meaning intended by God. Many preachers and teachers misuse the following verses ignoring scripture’s definitions.

1 Peter 2:9 "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light".

Now here are verses that define all the terms used in 1 Peter 2:9.

Exodus 19:5-6 "Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine". And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel."
Deuteronomy 14:2 "For thou art an holy people unto Yahweh thy God, and Yahweh hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth."
Deuteronomy 26:18 "And Yahweh hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments".
Titus 2:14 "Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works."
1 Chronicles 16:13 "O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones".
Psalms 135:4 "For Yahweh hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.
Isaiah 41:8 "But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend."
Isaiah 44:1 "Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen".

The Old and New Testaments have continuity. In the Hebrew and Greek they teach a unified doctrine. God does not change. The same goes for words and their meanings. In all the cases sighted each phrase or word are a description of God’s true Israel. In the one example of the word redeem, by the Law of the Kinsman redeemer, redemption is only for Israel. The modern day Jews are not Israelites.

Marital Adultery

I don’t think I have ever found a church that teaches the scriptural definition of adultery. Their rules have harmed a lot of good people. The problem is confused by the state’s definition and political correctness. God’s marriage is righteous. The state’s marriage was created to allow types of marriage that God does not allow, that are sin.

So here are God’s Laws concerning the marital type of adultery.

Adulteration is the mixing of seed of more than the husband in a woman.

A man’s seed affects the DNA of the woman. Intercourse makes them one flesh. This is why in scripture consensual intercourse is marriage.

If a married woman has intercourse with more than her husband she is an adulteress. She is defiled because she can no longer produce children that only belong to her and her husband. This is also called confusion.

If a husband kicks his wife out without divorce to marry another woman he becomes guilty of adultery when his wife marries another man since he caused it.

If a husband has intercourse with another woman he has taken on the responsibility of another wife.

Divorce is not a sin, but a way to correct a mistake. It is not a sin to marry someone who has been divorced. It is not sin to marry someone who has committed adultery. Hosea was told to do so by God twice, Hosea 1:2 and 3:1.

In Deuteronomy 24:1 the word uncleanness is from a Hebrew word that means nudity. It is all about coverature. A man or woman may divorce and remarry another when there has been a violation of coverature.

The act of adultery ends the marriage. No divorce is required.

Attempting to marry one who is not a Christian is being unequally yoked. Attempting to marry one who is not of your race is another type of adultery.

God’s Law protects the family lineage. It protects the woman and the man. I believe this is how God sees it. We don’t always follow God’s Law as we should. Not sure about any of this? Get busy. You will need to get into the Hebrew and Greek a bit.

God’s Law is Christ’s Law.

I come from a church that teaches that God’s Law is done away. It is not true, but the idea gives the church a great amount of control over the people. It doesn’t matter what they say, but rather what they do and what they have become is very much a church based on works. I know because I have a website and I have received questions from people for many years. It has been awhile, but the questions indicate that people were concerned about obeying church law, not so much scripture. Nothing they were worried about is in scripture at all, but they had been taught so strongly the need for obedience that they were worried over the simplest things. Often it was Sunday morning worship protocol. Now days they just don’t care anymore and the preaching has switched to Jesus loves everyone and he loves you no matter what you do. What nonsense.

They say they follow Christ’s Law as God’s Law is done away. I have asked several times what is Christ’s Law or what Laws are a part of it. The only answer I ever get is that Christ Law is the New Testament. Well Christ is God. We don’t worship two God’s, just one.

Isaiah 43:11 I, I am Yahweh; and beside me there is no savior.
John 10:30 I and my Father are one.

Christ’s Law is God’s Law.

Paul taught the New Testament church to obey God’s Law, but those verses tend to get ignored. Here is one of about two dozen.

Romans 2:12-13 "For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified."

Who shall be justified? Paul did not ever use past tense with respect to God’s Law. Now go read verses 14-15.

Romans 2:14-15 "For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)"

Paul promoted God’s Law.

1 Timothy 1:8 "But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully".

Romans 2:14-15

Romans 2:14-15 "For when the Nations (Gentiles), which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another".

Because the above incorrectly translates ethnos as Gentiles, people have the mistaken idea that there are some non-Israelite people with God’s Law written in their hearts. This one should be easy to figure out since one doesn’t even have to go to Jeremiah 31 for the context. It is repeated in Hebrews.

Hebrews 8:8-10 "For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people".

This is the new covenant agreement. The quote even includes a physical example so that it would be more difficult for those who destroy the scripture by spiritualizing it. It was a real, physical people who were led out of Egypt and with whom God made the covenants, both old and new. That is specified that the covenant is made only with those of the the two Houses of Israel.

The new covenant includes the House of Israel and the House of Judah, writing God’s Laws in their hearts. Romans 2 talks about some people that the English text calls Gentiles who have the Law of God written in their hearts. Unless God then has violated His own agreement these people must then be Israelites. This is simple logic. The Law of God is only written in the hearts of Israelites. The Law of God is only given to Israel.

Psalms 147:19-20  He shows his word to Jacob; his statutes and his ordinances to Israel. He has not done this for just any nation. They don’t know his ordinances. Praise Yah!

Therefore these “Nations” (Gentiles) must be Israelites. Remember the Greek word in the text is Nation. The word Gentile was a translation error to protect existing church doctrine.

So then logic requires that we look to see who, for almost two thousand years, has most behaved like they have the Law of God internalized or written in their hearts. When we identify those people, we have found true physical Israel.

The Context and Meaning of Old Testament Quotes

The writers of the new testament quoted from the old testament often and expected the reader to understand the context and word meaning of the original quote. Romans 9:24-26 is just one example. If the source of those quotes is ignored, the context of the quote and the meaning intended is lost.

Romans 9:24-26 "Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Judeans only, but also of the Nations? As he saith also in Hosea, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God."

If one reads that without looking at Hosea then it allows one to teach that the “Not my people” could be anyone. Paul told us to look at Hosea because he wanted us to know who are those Not a People. The Not my People were Israelites of the Northern ten tribes whom God was divorcing and sending away to become known as Nations (incorrectly Gentiles). However God made a promise to those Not a People.

Hosea 1:10-11 "Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God. Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head [Christ], and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel."

The fulfillment of this prophecy is found in Ephesians chapter two.

Israel

“Spiritual Israel”. The phrase is not found in scripture. A Spiritual Israel is never the recipient of promises or prophecy. God keeps His promises.

Daniel 2:44c "and the kingdom shall not be left to other people".

This is a part of why it is important to know who is really who in scripture and who is really who today.

John 10:16 "And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd."

This means that the other fold had to be physically descended from Jacob Israel. Hosea 1, Ephesians 2 and the parable of the Prodigal Son all verify this. This is why it is important to know about the two separate Houses of Israel. It is important to know how they became separated, how God viewed them and how they were prophesied to rejoin under one head, Christ, as they are today.

The idea of a Spiritual Israel was created by men who saw that those who are anti-Christ and claiming to be Israel were not fulfilling any prophecy for Israel. This was another instance of men trying to make sense of the Bible by changing the Bible. It is the world that is upside down, not the Kingdom of God. The method to understand the Bible is to change our understanding of the world. Those who hate Christ and spit when they hear His name are not God’s chosen. They do not hear His voice. They are not His sheep just like Christ said in John 5, 8 and 10. If you want to know who is Israel today, then look for the people who have followed and fulfilled prophecy for almost two thousand years.
