Children of Abraham

In the comment section of our paper on the Blood Moons Hoax there was this rather odd and out of place comment. From Zacuto that we have never really replied to because it really was not relevant to prophecy, so we thought we would deal with it here. For it is an attitude that some in the Messianic/Hebrew Roots congregations have, and it causes great disunity.

There are NO ‘gentiles’ in the Kingdom of Elohim. All are Yisrael and Judah.

Zacuto never explained what he meant by Yisrael and Judah, or what he or she considered the Kingdom of Elohim.

Our Answer

holding.hands.around.the.world.1We are adopted sons of Abraham, not Jacob. Therefore Gentiles are not Jews.

And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise. Gal. 3:29 

The promise referred to is Messiah. (See Also: Son of Abraham) Because of Messiah we can be Abrahams offspring. However the really important point is that Abraham was not an Ysraelite nor was he a Jew. He was in fact a great Gentile.

. . . seeing that Abraham shall become a great Gentile, and all the Gentiles of the earth shall bless themselves by him? Gen. 18:18 

Specifically an Armenian by birth.

“And you shall make response before the LORD your God, ‘A wandering Aramean was my father; and he went down into Egypt and sojourned there, few in number; and there he became a Gentile, great, mighty, and populous. Deut. 26:5 

Gentiles remain Gentiles or else these passages would not be true.

“Be still, and know that I am God. I am exalted among the Gentiles, I am exalted in the earth!” Psa. 46:10

All the Gentiles thou hast made shall come and bow down before thee, O Lord, and shall glorify thy name. Psa. 86:9

In that day the root of Jesse shall stand as an ensign to the peoples; him shall the Gentiles seek, and his dwellings shall be glorious. Is. 11:10 

. . . these I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples. Is. 56:7 

The Greek word for nations is ethne from which we get our words ethnic and ethnicity.

The kingdom was taken away from the Jews, and given to a new kingdom made of all peoples, nations, and tongues. Some of those people will indeed be of Jewish decent, but that is not what binds us together. Ethnicity is not what the Nation of Heaven is about.

Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation producing the fruits of it.” Matt. 21:43

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, that you may declare the wonderful deeds of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 1Pet. 2:9 

. . . and they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy art thou to take the scroll and to open its seals, for thou wast slain and by thy blood didst ransom men for God from every tribe and tongue and people and nation, Rev. 5:9 

The Kingdom has come, the Kings reigns in our lives. He reigns in the lives of those who are obedient, and seek first the Kings wills.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well. Matt. 6:33
