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.

THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY OF SPIRITUAL ACTIVITY

Posted on Updated on

 

This is an excerpt from my latest book titled – What From Hell Is Going On In The Church – out of a chapter called “Paranormal Demise ” and the reason I’m posting it here is that many church participants are not really convinced that there is a lull in the activity of the Spirit of God within the churches of today. They also argue whether or not His activity can be deemed as paranormal in it’s working.

So let’s review what we do know about paranormal activity. In the past, such activity is typically described as of or pertaining to events or happenings occurring without a clear scientific explanation. Often these are explained as mere clairvoyance or maybe extrasensory perception. But basically, it refers to some kind of activity that cannot be naturally explained as to the source or maybe even its purpose. This pretty much fits what goes on when supernatural activity by the Holy Spirit occurs on the earth. And the fact that He has historically been active both in the Church and on earth carries the weight for any discussion of why not now.

So many things are occurring today in the churches that seem to be uncharacteristic in a manner to how Christ would do. I believe it is directly linked to the lack of supernatural workings that in the past was clearly evident. In revealing there is a lack of spiritual discernment presently going on right now by many who occupy pulpits and pews. 1 Cor 2:14-15  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. This lack of discernment leads to gross spiritual ignorance of the evil present in the earth and now in the Church allowing the ways of the enemy to go unseen. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

Such a lack of discernment is not clarion of just the actions of those in the pulpits, it is also of those whom God declares as His own offspring. As there is this matter of church congregants being discerning of truth, and knowing how any discourse of His spiritual manifestations might occur today. While a demise of supernatural activity is taking place within the Church, there is an occurrence of demonic activity occurring upon the earth at a rate far exceeding anything we have ever observed.

As whole nations and regions are being immersed into a dark and hideous spiritual quagmire called Islam. A religion that holds hostage the minds and hearts of those who over the centuries have been deceived to believe there is some sort of Godly reward and eternal sanctuary waiting for those who do evil. This has been going on ever since the time of Isaac and Ishmael but has never been quite to the degree it is today. And yet we have churches that are ignorant and unaware of these evil spiritual forces that are at work here simply because they are too busy pandering to secularists who promote cultural promiscuity.

The Church is here because it is to be the most spiritually powerful entity present on the earth, in a supernatural sense. But it is plagued with ignorance and stupidity not because of anything that emanates from heaven by the Spirit of God, but by the evil that emanates from pulpits that are filled with those who are ignorant to what it even looks like. Gen 2:8-9  And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Though Adam was commanded not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, it did not mean that God had no intention of its presence being revealed.

The fact is over two-thirds of scripture contained in 66 books has been dedicated by the Spirit of God to revealing the enemy and his evil mannerisms. So one’s ignorance of such things presents an opportunity for him to operate just as he did in the beginning by using covert lies, deceitfulness, and diversely creative mannerisms contrary to anything that would ever come from God’s throne. This is clearly being revealed in our present political atmosphere where evil is being presented as good and anything good is by propaganda presented as bad.

Today many congregations sit in ignorance each week oblivious to whether or not anything emanating from the leadership is truly good or Godly or possibly even evil. I know that is offensive but I am not after any pulpits of the churches in the body of Christ that are being obedient to the presence of the Spirit of God or even those who choose to stupidly operate in this ignorance. I am out to reveal the one who is behind all of this, the one who is the enemy of us all, the devil, Lucifer, or Satan, whatever you want to call him. He is the one who truly brings the very presence of hell into the Church. But for some reason, there appears to be little or no resistance to what he is doing, and very few are calling him out and challenging him.

Maybe all of this is happening simply because many simply do not recognize his handy work. 1 Peter 5:8-11 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Those who have been supernaturally delivered from the working of sin in their lives have been so so that they can take up a vigilant stance by faith against the enemy’s evil afflictions. And they are to be sober-minded or without any influence that is contrary to a new life in Christ Jesus while doing so. So the very element that is required for anyone to do what He says they are to do only comes from hearing the truth as it is revealed by the Spirit of God. However, this truth is being purposely diverted by the enemy through evil narratives that are promoting a false spiritual presence in things such as cultural posturing, political correctness, performance-driven entertainment, and worst of all generational division.

None of this is in any way going to be supported or endorsed by God. Isa 63:15-17 (MSG) Look down from heaven, look at us! Look out the window of your holy and magnificent house! Whatever happened to your passion, your famous mighty acts, Your heartfelt pity, your compassion? Why are you holding back? 16 You are our Father. Abraham and Israel are long dead. They wouldn’t know us from Adam. But you’re our living Father, our Redeemer, famous from eternity! 17  Why, GOD, did you make us wander from your ways? Why did you make us cold and stubborn so that we no longer worshiped you in awe? Turn back for the sake of your servants. You own us! We belong to you! These scriptures make it clear we are not our own nor do we possess each other. We have been bought with the price of the very life of Jesus Christ our Lord and savior. And the Father has not redeemed us just so we can go back into the very evil mannerisms He delivered us out of.

One typically thinks of evil as the really bad stuff that happens among creation, like murders, or cutting off someone’s head or mutilating another person’s body. But evil can also be something very subtle and often appearing the same as something good or even Godly. 2 Cor 11:14-15 (AMP) And it is no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light; 15 So it is not surprising if his servants also masquerade as ministers of righteousness. [But] their end will correspond with their deeds. There is no activity of the Spirit of God that will ever promote us to do evil. His presence here is to teach us what it looks like and how the enemy uses it to bring destruction upon God’s creation. The biggest work of evil that occurs on earth happens within the churches when a pulpit willingly gives place to evil narratives to promote appeasement to sinful mannerisms rather than the activity of the Spirit of God.
