Who is Israel?
This story is not about a race of people. It’s about His children that Follow His Torah, The Law.
You may say, The law? Follow the Law? We are not under the Law! Please tell me which one of the ten commandments can we omit?
See previous post. He was meant to be a priest to the people created outside the garden.
The Lord wanted all of them to be His holy, royal, priesthood. The people rejected this and wanted Moses to be the one that talks to Him.
Exodus 20:18-19 All the people heard the thunder and saw the lightning. They heard the blast of the ram’s horn and saw the mountain covered with smoke. So they shook with fear and stood at a distance. Then they said to Moses, “You speak to us, and we’ll listen. But don’t let Elohim speak to us, or we’ll die!”
The Father always works with what we are willing to do.
It comes full circle. The Father wants it to be what He originally intended. JIt has just has taken us 6,000 years or so because we are slow learners with hard hearts.
1 Peter 2:9 However, you are chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, people who belong to God. You were chosen to tell about the excellent qualities of God, who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
Romans 2:28-29 A person is not a Jew because of his appearance, nor is circumcision a matter of how the body looks. Rather, a person is a Jew inwardly, and circumcision is something that happens in a person’s heart. Circumcision is spiritual, not just a written rule. That person’s praise will come from God, not from people.
Please explain this scripture.
Yeshua gave us law, gave us commandments, He is the Word made flesh.
I don’t claim to be an expert. I reserve the right to be wrong! My studies lead me to conclude that basically anyone who followed the Torah was considered “his people”. –
