Who Gives the Increase

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.
