We are all As Jews Through Christs Blood

posted by PrayerWarrior

It has been quite some time since I have written anything here. Alls I can say is I have been growing and learning so very much and just have been selfish with my time over the last few months. I wanted to be strengthened and grow fully and completely,for the times coming upon us.The Lord is moving me in many different directions and growing me spiritually daily.My Love for the Lord is unshakable,and that is what I wanted to achieve in this hiatus. It was not and is not of my own doing that I have been growing. I know I cannot do that on my own. When we seek the Lord’s face and call upon Him,with all expectation that He will show up,guess what? He shows up!! God is so good and faithful.

I will be writing more soon again I have many different thoughts on what articles to do. I am especially drawn to the times we are living in and the signs of these times. More soon,Tammy

We Are All As Jews Through Christ’s Blood

Rom 11:2 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?
So often I have heard Christians say oh thats for the Jews that the bible is speaking of in the end times. I say not so. For we are all (whom have accepted Christ) Jew’s or Israelites Through Christs blood. I have asked where does it make a distinction, in what scripture does the bible or any of the apostles speak of the Jews (Only), having all the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the end times. I have yet to receive an answer from anyone. Most often what I see is the person whom I have asked to show me where in the bible it says, that time of power and gifts of the Holy Spirit is for the natural born Jewish people? One brave man answered my question saying we will not be here because of the rapture,so it must be the Jewish people only.

I told him I am sorry sir, but no you see, we will be here during that time. Our friendship and brother sister relationship in Christ, ended that day.This brother wants so badly to believe that the rapture of the church will take place before any of the bad stuff occurs,that he turned off his ears. The funny thing was this person was asking all the right questions of the scriptures used to explain when the rapture will actually be. There again though when truth was shown him, he turned away from it.To my own ears all of the explanations for a pretrib rapture rang hollow. I could not accept the answers as they were shown to me.Those answers merely made me question further why the scriptures were being twisted. I decided when things do not make sense, forget all you have been taught already, and go to the source of it all,the Word,which is The Lord.
I prayed and fasted for three weeks on this one subject. I read my word diligently and every scripture pertaining to the end times in the Old and New Testaments.I did not sleep much either in that time.

In the third week of my seeking the Lord and fasting,I was shown the scriptures. All of them clearly,my eyes were opened and the breakthrough was, to say the least PHENOMENAL. I was fairly screaming with the excitement of it all.I was asking all the right questions before on why does the bible say this that or the other thing,but iI was asking the wrong people. When I asked the Lord show me Father show me truth unvarnished. Prepare my heart and mind and soul to receive truth Lord. Show me, that I may never walk away from you Lord,in fear or doubt.He brought me back first, to Matthew chapter 24:29 where all my original questions were first begun. Why would Jesus our precious savior, say AFTER those times of tribulation, if He actually meant before those times of tribulation? The answer was so simple. It was as clear as the nose on my face. We all know that Jesus says what He means, and means what He says.Unless of course He was using parables.

Then also in 2Thessalonians 2: 3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. It says here as plain as day, that day shall not come until the falling away,Stop right there!!! If there are no Christians here in that time because the rapture has come then whom shall be falling away? Then the next line says and that man of perdition be revealed. Was Paul making a riddle here? I think not.Verse four goes on to explain who that man of perdition is,the man who exalts himself above all that is God. Hmmmm We know that antichrist is not revealed till the middle of the 7 years of tribulation.

It is true we are not due the wrath of God, but Jesus did tell us we would face horrible tribulation.That horrible tribulation has not even come close to happening as of yet.1Thess 5:9 tells us,“For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,”. Revelation tells us that the first half of the tribulation is not God’s wrath. God’s wrath comes in the form of the vials.Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: Then in Rev 15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.There is a distinction made between the anger of the antichrist making war against the saints,and God’s wrath.

Many times people say where are the saints in Revelation after Chapter 3 they are not mentioned again. EXCUSE ME?? Better read again brother or sister. We are mentioned all over the place, up until chapter 14:16. That is where we are going up up up and away.Now I have read many a time Rev 3:10 and I see it as protection from the temptations that come upon the earth or the temptation to forget all of what you have known and loved for so long, The Lord. Not taking you away He will keep us from it, in other words protect us through it. I think it would be clearly spoken if anything other than protecting us were meant. The amplified bible says it like this, 10 Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance [have held fast the lesson of My patience with the expectant endurance that I give you], I also will keep you [safe] from the hour of trial (testing) which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth.

The greek word ek (from, of, out of) (occasionally in, through)
Used in Revelation 3:10. Used with teereo (keep) also in John 17:15, where it does not mean emergence from within, but rather a staying outside. See staying, not taken away from.Here is another better explanation of this verse. There seems to be a volume of Scripture such as Matthew 24 and 2 Thessalonians 2 that would clearly indicate that believers are going to experience the testing during the Great Tribulation of Antichrist. In the Greek “will keep you from” is TEREO EK. TEREO means to “watch over protectively, guard” and with the preposition EK it carries the idea of being guarded or protected and rescued out from the midst of danger. If the idea of keeping one from entering were intended the preposition APO would have been used. So it is the idea of deliverance out from within rather than an external deliverance.

The clear and obvious meaning concerns protection within the sphere of danger and not protection from danger. Christ has promised the faithful believers that He will deliver them at the revelation of His Glory at His Coming. To make this verse of Scripture mean “deliverance before the testing begins” is manipulating the Scripture to support a false position rather than accepting what the Scripture really says. To you who would add any words to the Revelation or any part of the Word,Woe to you.

Wow in going back over all of this,the Lord obviously moved me in a different direction than I had intended this article to go. No matter the Lord working through these fingers is something I love to have happen.

It has been on my mind so much lately that we being grafted into the Olive tree that is the Israelites,must mean the same for us. Throughout the New Testament we see evidence that we are not merely Gentiles any longer,that through the acceptance of Christs blood covering, we are as the Jew’s were,the chosen ones. We have been chosen and we have chosen to follow Christ,He being a Jew,as soon as we accept His blood covering as our own covering of sin,we now have His genes.
Romans 11:1,7,11,17,25,28,33 all speak of the olive tree and the opportunity of the gentiles to be grafted into the olive tree. With verses 25 and 28 speaking of the mercy for the Jews who still abide by the laws and works, have a chance at salvation,as well as their strength being so much more, once they have accepted Christ as the Messiah. I love it!!

Verse 17 of Romans 11:17 -The Olive tree We need to notice our perspective here. Paul is clarifying that Israel’s failure as a nation does not mean that they are hopelessly lost. Is the tree Israel? Yes and no. In the previous chapter (and elsewhere) Paul clarified that there is no distinction between Jews and Greeks. (Greeks were the main group of Gentiles in Paul’s world). They are the same to Christ. Paul is here addressing people who were thinking in terms of their ethnic distinctions and wants to avoid either group from feeling that they now have or have lost God’s favor. In the immediate context the tree is Israel, but God never intended that Israel should be saved in any way different from anyone else. Their distinction was that they had been given truth and were to convert the world. Thus the tree is the body of Christ (His followers), as Israel was to have been. Also remember that the infant church was principally ethnic Jews who accepted their Messiah.

In closing It is important for all of us who are Christs own, to know that we are as the Jews chosen ones. I personally think we should be celebrating all of the Jewish Holidays as they are important to our Lord and Savior. I also think we must realize ,that we are as Christ followers given the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Those gifts include, Wisdom, Knowledge, Discerning of spirits (human, angelic, demonic), Speaking in tongues, Interpretation of tongues,Prophecy, Faith, Working of miracles,and Healing. These gifts are alive and well. If the apostles were told to go out into the world and baptize in the Holy Spirit,why is it that so many today believe these gifts were stopped when the last apostle died? What is the need of being baptized in the Holy Spirit if not to receive and use these God given gifts? I know most of the true Christian churches out there believe that you must be baptized in the Holy Spirit. So what is the need for that if you get no gifts? I also know that most denominations of churches believe that upon receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit,you are given faith, and discernment. What about the rest of the gifts? Why would God merely give these gifts and not the others?

I have a feeling many people are going to be very surprised when the Holy Spirit is working stronger than ever, in our not too distant future. When every man woman and child will be displaying the gifts of the Holy Spirit.If they believe in God and the atoning blood of Christ.
I will go a step further and quote Mark 9:23 all things are possible to those who believe. Do you understand that? If you believe it,it is possible. Better still,if you believe it,it will happen. Your unbelief in the power,the gifts of the Holy Spirit, is the only thing holding you back from seeing the fruits of it.

There was never a distinction made between Jews and gentiles then or now. What God does for any He does for all,Amen to that.

Love in Christ, Tammy
