2 John 7-11 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. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. Born again believers are the true Israel of God, these are in Christ, and abide in the doctrine of Christ. He who has the Word of Life in his heart and mind, hath both the Father and the Son. Only Born again believers are the true Israel of God, and through the Spirit that dwells in them, a faithful walk with Him is possible.
If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed (or rejoice with him). For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
We are not to receive any teachings that are not of Christ; by rejoicing with the deceivers we join with them in their evil deeds. Furthermore anyone that denies the fact that Christ did indeed appear in the flesh has that wicked spirit of the antichrist, and is an adversary of Jesus the Messiah. Because Born again believers are the true Israel of God, they understand their place and purpose with the Creator of all things. The Lord Jesus Christ, is our redeemer and our Salvation, and with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit we recognize that we are now the True Israel of God.
To recognize the deniers of Christ that reside in the modern man made state of Israel, as the Israel of God, or the chosen ones, is a dangerous and deadly deceptive doctrine from the depths of Hell. Those that despise Christ who created all things are definitely chosen, but it is unto destruction (Col 1:12-18).
The Father gave backsliding Israel a bill of divorcement and put her away as she played the whore with many false gods. Israel after the flesh was not the Israel of God. Judah was even more treacherous in her whoredoms, so she also was not considered the Israel of God (Jer 3:6-11). Only Born again believers are the true Israel of God. Without His Spirit we can do nothing, and this includes knowing His Word, or escaping the lusts of this life.
At the time when Jesus was born the physical kingdom of Israel was long gone. Christ the Lion of the tribe of Judah came to Judaea to present the new covenant and thus fulfill what was written in the law and the prophets. The house that was called by the name of the Lord had become a den of thieves. The majority were not of the tribe of Judah, but were actually of the synagogue of Satan.
Like Israel after the flesh that had rejected the Father, so too would these children of Judah reject the Lord and forfeit the right to be redeemed, or to be affectionately called the Israel of God (Jer 7:11; Math 21:13; Jer 7:11; John 1:9-14; Rev 2:9; Rev 3:9). Born again believers are the true Israel of God, for we worship Him in Spirit and in truth.
Anyone with Spiritual discernment in Christ, knows that He declared the false house of Judah to be desolate, their house was declared desolate as was their religion (Math 23:38; Acts 26:5; Gal 1:13-14).
Christ came to confirm the covenant with many, and only Born again believers are the true Israel of God; as well they are the only ones to be recognized as the children of God. The true Israel of God, represent all who are in Christ Jesus. Those who continue in His covenant are indeed rightful Heirs of the Kingdom (Heb 8:6-10).
Eph 5:6-11 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Of the many false teachings regarding Israel and the end times, one stands out that is quite outrageous. According to this new age mythology, all Christians will be raptured away, and yet many come to be saved through the 144,000 of the twelve tribes of Israel that are left behind. It is taught that this group will witness to the world, and that the Great Tribulation is a time for Israel to come to salvation. Born again believers are the true Israel of God, and Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God (John 3:3).
I Will Bless Those That Bless Thee, And Curse Those That Curse Thee
Gen 12:1-3 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
This blessing was to Abraham, not modern day Israel! Mathew speaks of the generations that start with Abraham, continue through David and end with Christ. The blessings of Abraham come on all that have faith through Christ. The reason for this is that the promises were made to Abraham and his seed, which is Christ (Gal 3:14-16).
Keep in mind that neither Abraham, Isaac, Jacob nor his sons were of the tribe of Judah; so they were not jewish, nor did they practice judaism. Furthermore even If those in Modern day Israel could prove a lineage from Jacob’s son Judah, which is highly unlikely, apart from Faith in Christ and adherence to His New Law, there is no blessing.
In Christ there is no difference between the Judeans or the Greeks, the important thing is to recognize that Born again believers are the true Israel of God, and are therefore members of the body of Christ. All who are truly transformed by Christ are Sealed with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and truly are the Israel of God.
1 Cor 10:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
John the Baptist was that one, of whom it was written, Behold, I send my messenger before thee, which shall prepare thy way before thee (Luke 7:27). All the people that heard John, including the publicans, were justified through their Faith in God, being baptized with the baptism of John.
As for the Pharisees and lawyers, they rejected the will of God; they would not be baptized of John, nor would they receive the Holy Spirit through the Baptism of Christ (Luke 7:29-30; Mark 1:8). Born again believers are the true Israel of God, but these that plotted to kill Christ were born of their father the devil.
John was the one who would prepare the way for Christ, spoken of by the Prophet Isaiah (Matt 3:3; Isa 40:3-10; 57:14-15; 62:10-12).
The Pharisees knew of the Glory of Christ The Messiah, that would be revealed in Judaea (Isa 40:5). However they made a false pretense, with an outward appearance of justification before men. Man is justified by faith through Christ, without the works of the law (Rom 3:28).
God indeed knows the condition of the heart of man, for that which is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God (Luke 16:15). How many who claim to be of Christ today are guilty of this crime? Because of the fact that Born again believers are the true Israel of God, they also have the ability to clearly discern who these frauds at the pulpits are. The traditions of men always lead to distortions of the truth.
The promise of the Spirit of Christ unto redemption can only be received through faith. This is the blessing given unto Abraham who would be the founder of many nations, and ultimately all nations through Christ. Because of the fact that Born again believers are the true Israel of God, they also partake of the blessings given to Faithful Abraham.
All who are truly in Christ are now considered the Israel of God, and are promised the inheritance of eternal life with Him, at His second coming. All who walk in the faith of Christ are counted as Abraham’s seed. Because of the fact that Born again believers are the true Israel of God, they understand that to be without Christ Jesus, and yet claim to be of the chosen ones of the tribe of Judah is nonsensical.
Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness [come] by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
The Word of God was first spoken to the people in Judaea, and unto the tribe of Judah. The vast majority of these people however, were of a deceptive and self righteous denomination or sect that rejected not only the Word of Christ, but the words of all the prophets before Christ as well.
As a result of judging themselves as unworthy of salvation their house was declared desolate. Because of the fact that Born again believers are the true Israel of God, they can understand the gospel of Christ, and are called the chosen and faithful of God (Acts 13:26-50; Eph 1:1-14).
The desolation declared upon their house (of which tribe Christ came out of) was not just a temporary judgment. It was a perpetual spiritual condition that would last until Christ himself returned to bring everlasting righteousness, and remove those things that offend. All will bow to Christ when He returns to judge the world and to reign as King of Kings at the end of this age. Because Born again believers are the true Israel of God, they readily observe and understand this deception that runs wild not only in Judaism, but in the churches that the Great Whore has infiltrated (Dan 9:24-27; Isa 1:21-27; Luke 13:35; Isa 45:21-23; Rom 14:11; Phl 2:10-11; 2 Tim 4:1).
Jesus proclaimed,” Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you murder the prophets, and stone them which are sent unto you…Behold your house is now desolate (Math 23:37-38). Christ’s house was one of prayer, but these religious leaders had turned it into a den of thieves (Math 21:13). The very same thing occurs in many so-called Christian churches today. Christianity has become a multi billion dollar industry that peddles cheap salvation and other deceptive doctrines that lead many to hell.
Isaiah 1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
