Spiritual Warfare

ISRAEL NEEDS A UNITED CHURCH NOT A UNITED NATIONS

Posted on Updated on

In light of the latest tribunal over Israel and her right to land and developments within her own borders there is one thing that does not appear as to have changed much over the centuries regarding the Church and Israel. The scriptures reveal that those who bless Israel will be blessed, and those who curse her will be cursed. This is obviously something that many Christians do not clearly understand as over the centuries it has been the manner of the Church corporate to discard any interactive spiritual union with Israel or its Judaic roots, as the Jews are typically seen as being outside of a so called perimeter of faith. Thus a void exist within the Church that began early on in its history and continues to be present even today. A void that is intentionally kept in place by those who see Israel as not having any spiritual aspirations. 5 Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace.6 And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work. 7 What then? Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect have obtained it, and the rest were blinded. Rom. 11: 5-7 Even though Israel lost its ability to perceive its God ordained purpose as the Church, there is a remnant as mentioned here that is being kept under God’s grace in Israel.

Israel’s past spiritual leaders celebrated religiously to the extent and degree that such celebrations resulted in an appearance of a religious stupor, as illustrated in reference to their vomiting up self-righteousness all over the place as is written in Isa 28:5-16. Something that even exist today in many of the churches within the mainstream denominations. And yet throughout the Old and New Testament God has revealed that He will not cast away His nation Israel. He does not forget what He has decreed to come to pass, because everything He does revolves around her. He says that Israel is under an everlasting covenant, and that they are not only to possess the land as they do now and will in the end, but more importantly that it cannot be taken away from them. 8 He hath remembered his covenant forever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. 9 Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; 10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant: 11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance: Ps 105:8-11

Nothing can remove Israel from God’s plans especially any religious doctrines that say they are not of the today Church, and have been replaced by those who are grafted in. Paul reveals that through their fall the Lord brought salvation upon the Gentiles, this was to provoke Israel to enter in, which was the spiritual purpose behind this move. 11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. Rom 11:11 As we can see Israel failed to fulfill its spiritual purpose as the Church due to its religious indifference to such truths. But instead of God removing them from being His nation of purpose, He continued to work by the Spirit of God to retain them. God’s intention was to provoke Israel, and make them see that He is bringing the Gentiles into the very blessings and promises that they were to possess by faith in Christ. We Gentiles are now by faith in possession of Israel’s promised inheritance. 12 Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! Rom. 11: 12 So for a today believer it’s important to know that if Israel missed their riches in Christ by the result of unbelief. How much more such riches would be present if Israel were fulfilling their true purpose as the Church. The Church of today must understand that every blessing is by inheritance to us who are grafted in, and in our possession to not only be a blessing to others, but more importantly provoke Israel through blessings. We the Church have no claim to the inheritance of the Jews except through Christ, and every spiritual blessing that is brought into the Church for the reconciliation of the world is to also be used in ministering to Israel. 13 For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them.15 For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? Rom. 11: 13-15 When Israel comes to the truth by provocation it will be worth it, as their coming will result in an everlasting life, His hidden purpose for them and all creation. But the Church today denies them any such blessings by maintaining it’s religious fervor of spiritual abstinence.

These next three verses are extremely important to the today believer in that they reveal a mystery that is relevant to all the Church, a mystery that has been badly convoluted by centuries of philosophical doctrine. A mystery that if truly known by all the parts of the Church body would change the very character of all who are to live in righteousness. 16 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. 17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, 18 do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you. Rom. 11: 16-18 This mystery has to do with the very spiritual character of the Church as it is to be seen in this earth. A character that is to be the same as the root that is mentioned here. The root and trunk as referenced is the spiritual commonwealth of Israel established upon Judaic principles that are supernaturally rooted in Christ, the anointed Holy One of Israel. The Church is purposed to produce fruits of righteousness, and must come to see that the SAP flowing through this tree is the righteous character of God as revealed through Christ who is the root nourishing the whole trunk to which all the branches are affixed. 4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:4-5

All branches are connected to the one trunk to be resourced by the same nourishing SAP in order to bring about fruit that is from a righteous and incorruptible seed. 23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 1 Peter 1:23 (NKJV) Jesus Christ is the root, He came into the earth through Israel, thus Christianity is of the Jews first and not the Gentiles. Meaning we who are the Gentile Church do not possess the tree the tree possess us. Thus the authority that was to prevail through Israel in this earth has now been routed through those who have been grafted in. So did you get that? Israel deserves to have a united Church supporting and standing up for her, not a Church that has been whimpered into submission by the political dogma of the day. The current leaders within the churches of this country appear to have already resolved the issue of Israels rights that are ordained by God to now be left up to the geopolitical hacks of this world. However no matter what our government or the United Nations does the supernatural power to resolve any conflicts against Israel lies within her God given rights, and the rights of those who have been grafted into a spiritual commonwealth. It is a shame that the latest narrative regarding Israel’s rights isn’t being carried by the Church, but by those who only have a political prowess to obtain.

CREATED TO KEEP THE LAWS

Posted on Updated on

Though most of the trend of my blogs is toward the things that are uncharacteristic to the Church’s presence here, I still need to affirm the glory that is in all who are God’s offspring. So I brought an excerpt from an older book that I wrote in 2014 called God’s Power Revealed as I believe it is relevant to our present status in the war of the spirit.

Everything God has purposed to be revealed on earth by His sons and daughters in Christ is for abiding in the spiritual laws present here. One of the reasons we were born again is to fulfill the laws of God both spiritual and natural. Now do not get legalistic on me I am not referring to keeping the laws of Moses as some believe. But keeping the laws that God has placed here for the purpose of stabilization of the spiritual realms. Jesus who is our example in all things relevant to our physical existence, as the Son of God knew that spiritual and natural laws exist by the governance of God’s word. And that they must be observed since any violation of such laws causes disruptions in spiritual places which in turn disrupts into our natural realm.

The laws of God are both spiritual and supernatural in working and maintain all things as He established in the beginning. Jesus knew He was the ultimate sacrifice for man, and as such, He knew that He could not violate the laws of Moses or any spiritual laws established by God. That is why He told John that He must be baptized by him for them both to fulfill all things regarding the law. Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. Math 3:13-15. He also knew that He would do all things by the anointing of the Spirit of God while He occupied a fleshly body. How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. Acts 10:38

He submitted himself to the governance of the spiritual laws declared by His Father at creation, as well as any natural laws invoked by the fall of Adam. And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Gen 3:18. The fall was a giving up of sovereign authority by God for man’s dominion to the curse. Our enemy who is evil in nature knows that God will enforce His own laws, he uses the curse against us. Though God is bound by His word, He does not do so because of the devil, but because He is God.

The laws God has spoken are enforced by the Spirit of God. Like Moses who was to reveal righteousness with God to Israel showed that abiding by them it would make them counted as righteous until the time of Jesus fulfilling God’s plan of eternal salvation. And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us. Deut 6:25God has His attention focused upon the earth, not specifically on man’s conflicts or the economic conditions, but the results of poverty, sickness, and diseases, seen by God upon those who are under the yoke of sin promoted by the evil one. And the fact that somehow they have managed by the work of the Spirit of God to focus on Him, as God.

In essence, they have come to realize, or have great reverence that He as God is the one who can deliver them from such sin. For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. Isa. 66:2This verse refers to individuals who are by the curse spiritually impoverished, and unable to change their condition because they are in essence spiritually dead because of Adam’s fall in the Garden. They are as the word illustrates spiritually maimed, mutilated by the works of darkness like you and me before Christ when we were spiritually incapacitated. But just like us when they humbly come to the word of God and are now fearfully focused and reverent of the truths therein. They see how the God of that word by authority and power can change their spiritual condition. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, Prov 1:7(a).

Anyone who is in Christ is being brought up by the Holy Spirit as a son or daughter of God having rights to an inherited promised possession, eternal life in Christ. Our heavenly Father has delivered us out of the judgment and punishment of the curse and has done this so that we can be His spiritual offspring on this earth today. And through Christ submission to the laws of God we are no longer spiritually incapacitated, but fully restored to be spiritually prosperous in the earth. No believer is left here to somehow survive on this earth under constant influence from spiritual forces that are not of a Godly character or purpose. Something that many have yet to fully perceive.

A believer is the very presence of God, who is Spirit, on this earth today. Our spiritual presence even though contained in a fleshly body is purposed to to be an influence here with a force, God’s authority and power. An authority and power that is greater than the forces of hell occupying this earth. Jesus said that His Church is greater than the gates of hell, which are just spiritually enforced partitions of evil. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock (revelation knowledge) I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. Math 16:18. Such enforcements are not strong enough to hold back the power of God inherent in the authority of His word.

I believe we are that generation that will rise to greater heights by our witness of truth revealing the kingdom of God in this earth. But taking possession of the things of this earth in the authority and power of God through Christ Jesus our Lord requires equipping us for the good work He has created us for. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Tim 3:16-17.
