Shortly before His death Jesus Christ commanded His apostles to go into “all nations” (Mat. 24:14), find the “… lost sheep of the House of Israel” (Mat. 10:6; 15:24) and teach them gospel of the Kingdom of God. True believers among them would establish His church within those nations. Therefore the New Testament Church was established throughout the earth as an Israelite institution and remains so to this day. But what about the Gentiles? some might ask. Recall that God told Israel that she would be His “light to the Gentiles” (Isa. 42:6; 49:6), that they (Gentiles) would see their (Israel’s) light, and that some of them would come to their light–believe and obey His gospel. Gentiles have always been welcomed into the Commonwealth of Israel. This was evidenced by her absorbing a “mixed multitude” of Gentiles who had come out of Egyptian slavery with her as noted in Exodus 12:38-51. The Gentiles’ “adoption” into the Commonwealth of Israel was contingent upon their acceptance of Israel’s God and obedience to His “one Law” that He gave to all of the ex-slaves from atop of Mt. Sinai, also called Mt. Horeb. That Law was the Ten Commandments by which His people continue to live to this day. Those commandments summarize His Holy Bible–His rules for receiving salvation.
Just as ancient Israel comprised the Old Testament “Church in the (physical) wilderness” of Sinai headed by Christ (Acts 7:38/ 1 Cor. 10:4), the descendants of those Israelites comprise the New Testament Church in today’s spiritual wilderness headed by Satan. God’s tiny remnant church is headed by Christ (Joel 2:27-29/ Jer. 31:31/ Heb. 8:8-12). That Gentiles were (are) heathen and separated from God was brought out in Ephesians 2:11-13 and 1 Corinthians 12:2 where Paul reminded biological Gentiles in the church that prior to their becoming spiritual Israelites they were “without Christ, aliens from the Commonwealth of Israel, strangers from the (old and new) covenants of promise (of salvation), without hope and without God in the world.” This changed when they were absorbed into the House of Israel and became spiritual Israelites by making Israel’s God their God and obeying His Law.
Nothing has changed. Biological Israelites, who number as “the sand of the sea” and “the stars of heaven,” and biological Gentiles must both become spiritual Israelites in order to be true children of God. The irony is that Israelites, who number in the multiplied hundreds of millions world-wide, do not know they are Israelites. For this reason they are called the “lost tribes of Israel.” Upon being scattered throughout the earth for their sins they took on the spiritual, social, linguistic, political, etc. characteristics of the Gentiles among whom they settled. Today, millions of people who call themselves Gentiles are in fact Israelites. For example, the members of the British Royal Family are Jews. At one time they were proud of their heritage. Today they refuse to acknowledge their Jewish ancestry. Queen Elizabeth’s father traced his lineage back to the family of King David. Jeremiah’s pillar stone once sat below the throne on which English kings and queens were crowned. The stone was moved to Ireland, then to Scotland, then back to Ireland. To my knowledge it again resides in Scotland. In spite of the fact that Jesus told the woman at the well that, “Salvation is of the Jews,” the Royal Family does not want the world to know that they carry the bloodline of the most famous king of Israel–David, the “man after God’s own heart.”
Institutional Christianity’s god has successfully erased the above Truth from the minds of his parishioners. As a result of the evolutionary acts he has foisted upon his followers, millions of church people know nothing about their biological and spiritual heritage, their connection to God’s Law, etc. But they are about to be inlightened. And it will not be a pleasant experience. Jesus proclaimed that on the Day of Judgment He would stand before the masses who would remind Him of “all the wonderful works we have done in your name.” To them He will say: “I never knew you; depart from Me you who practice iniquity (Gr-Lawlessness).” These are those super-religious people who had followed their evolving god’s lead in rejecting the Biblical God’s Words (commandments) while embracing their fake god’s church doctrines. These people will have spent their lifetimes dutifully following the rules laid down by their false god while religiously carrying, referring to, reciting, preaching from the Book that refutes and condemns their religion. These people will have rejected those whom the Biblical God had sent to them bearing His Truth. There will indeed be much “weeping and gnashing of teeth” as the religious masses watch those minutely few who had believed and obeyed the Biblical God being welcomed into their “place of safety” as the Great Tribulation engulfs the world. They will then realize that the promised “rapture” had been a ruse played on them by the evolving god in whom they had placed their trust. I do not believe that the human mind can comprehend the agony and terror that will fill the hearts of men when the Truth raises its marvelous head. Alas, all of the above is avoidable. L.J.
