Why the Land of the Middle East Does Not Belong to the

Nation of Israel as their Everlasting Possession

April 20, 2018

On April 18th and 19th the Nation of Israel will commemorate its 70th Anniversary as a Nation which began in Man’s time frame on May 14, 1948.  And now because of the ever so popular Eschatology of Dispensational Pre-Millennialism – pretty much MOST of Christendom is convinced that it was somehow God’s DIVINE PLAN that the whole Nation of Israel be “reborn” and become a resurrected Jewish State on May 14, 1948.  But clearly – the Bible teaches that “the Israel of God” is the only True Holy Nation that Christ has ever had – and that it is NOT made up of just the Jewish people only -- but of both Jews and Gentiles that Christ Himself chose out of this Human Race before the foundation of the world.

And that means that it was Man’s decree that Israel become a Nation again on May 14, 1948 – NOT God’s DIVINE DECREE for according to His Word – He had already decided who would be in His Holy Nation before even creating Mankind.

Certainly the Bible teaches that at Christ’s 1st Coming the Temple had become a Temple of heresy and abominations filled with the false teachings that the unfaithful Priests and Pharisees ruling there were promoting about the Messiah and His Future Millennial Kingdom reign. 

And Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 Visions that what was true about the Temple and the Apostate Congregation of God worshipping there at Christ’s 1st Coming -- would foreshadow what would be taking place at His 2nd Coming.  That it would again be filled to the rafters with False Prophets promoting LIES about the Messiah and the reason now for His 2nd Coming. 

And we know what happened in the 1st Century -- Christ proclaimed Judgment upon the False Prophets ruling there.  And Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 Visions that He would again declare Judgment on the False Prophets worshipping in what John called the “Harlot Church” in The Book of Revelation that he saw “riding THE BEAST.”  Clearly we True Prophets of Christ should be able to see the Apostasy that is happening now in this 21st Century End-Time Harlot Church and that Christ has today poured out the 1st two of the LAST 3 WOES.   

And because of the great “falling away” from the faith -- Christ could say again today to “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” who are the False Prophets worshipping in this Apostate Harlot End-Time Church in VAIN – just what He prophesied to the unfaithful Jews in the 1st Century:

“Therefore I say to you, the Kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a Nation bearing the fruits of it.” (Matthew 21:43)

It is my prayer that in this Commentary that I can give enough evidence that demands a verdict that the land of the Middle East is NOT “the Promised Land” – nor is it the “Eternal Possession” of the Jewish People.  And rebuilding a 3rd Temple on this bullet-riddled piece of property does not guarantee that the True God of the Universe will ever return to this Earth to rule there for a 1000 years – for that is Man’s False Eschatology – NOT Christ’s True Eschatology.

CLEARLY – this world is all about TRUTH and LIES and today it is obvious with Satan LOOSED that TRUTH has all but been cut off when even Professed Christians today have no problem in – denying – contradicting – distorting – and challenging the very Words of the True God of the Universe who proclaimed:

“I am the way, THE TRUTH, and the ( only way to Eternal) life.  NO ONE comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:5)

Christ is declaring in this verse that there is virtually NO truth apart from Him and His Word.  And that there is certainly no Eternal Life in Heaven without believing His Truths concerning His Millennial Kingdom.  And that is why in this Final Spiritual Battle of “Gog and Magog” and “Armageddon” which Christ REVEALED to John in his 7th Vision is MAN AT WAR with Christ and His Word – one needs to decide which side of the TRUTH they are on.  For if anyone “delights in unrighteousness” or “LOVES THE LIE” as Paul prophesied in 2nd Thessalonians 2:10-12 -- it is a Spiritual Battle that unsaved Mankind will NEVER WIN – for NO ONE can fight against Christ and His Word and win. 

Christ had both John and Paul prophesy that He would LOOSE Satan as the Supreme Antichrist to DECEIVE the Nations right into HELL with him in this Final Rebellion when we read:

“And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received NOT the love of THE TRUTH, that they might be saved.   And for this cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe A LIE:  12 That they all might be DAMNED who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (which is loving THE LIES of Satan!!!) (2nd Thess. 2:10-12)

 

Satan and his False Prophets will Not Prevail Much Longer

FORTUNATELY – this Final Spiritual Battle that Christ had John call by the CRYPTIC LANGUAGE of “Armageddon” and “Gog and Magog” will NOT last much longer because Mankind has obviously reached a point of no return now when Evil Mankind can annihilate the whole world with WMD’s.  And while Satan and his False Prophets may be “prevailing” NOW in this Final Spiritual Battle of being AT WAR with Christ and His Word for “a little season” as Christ REVEALED to both Daniel and John in their visions – the outcome is JUDMENT.  And from all of the SIGNS that Christ gave to us True Prophets of His -- the Final Day of Judgment is right on the Horizon when Christ will Return and throw Satan and his False Prophets into HELL when Daniel prophesied:

“I was watching; and the same horn (referring to “the little horn” who is SATAN) was MAKING WAR against the saints (which refers to today’s Final Battle of “Gog and Magog”), and prevailing against them,  until the Ancient of Days came, and a Judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the Kingdom.” (which will occur on the LAST DAY at the Rapture) (Daniel 7:21-22)

CLEARLY – the evidence that demands a verdict that we are in this Final Spiritual Battle now of Man AT WAR with Christ and His Word -- is that while Christ REVEALED to John that this Final Battle would be SPIRITUAL and that it would be fought between the False Prophets in the Kingdom of Satan and the True Prophets in the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth – Man says “NO!!!” – that Christ somehow got it all WRONG. 

Dispensationalists who represent MOST of the Evangelical Christian World today -- proclaim that The New Testament Church will be Raptured before these two Battles which they proclaim are both Military Battles even begin.  But fortunately -- Christ REVEALED the TRUTH to John in his 7 Visions.  And the Truth that He REVEALED was that this Final Battle is SPIRITUAL and that it must occur as a prelude to His 2nd Coming – for it would be the Final Event in History before the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity. 

CLEARLY -- Christ REVEALED to John in his 7th Vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20 -- that the “Gog and Magog” Battle which is also the Battle of “Armageddon” -- will be the Final Rebellion of Satan leading all the unsaved in the Nations of the World to fight AGAINST CHRIST and His Word and those of us True Prophets who are still here and NOT Raptured who are standing up for the TRUTH of His Word about these End-Times. 

In other words – this Final Spiritual Battle is the culmination of the SPIRITUAL WARFARE that has been raging since the Garden of Eden and will be fought with DECEPTION.  For while it’s true that Satan NOW has WMD’s in his arsenal – Christ REVEALED to John in his 7th Vision that Satan’s PRIMARY weapon would be DECEPTION – NOT WMD’s.

But Man says “NO”!!!  And now even so many Professed Christians are AT WAR with Christ and His Word about the Final Events of History that it’s heartbreaking to witness for any of us who are standing up for Christ’s True Eschatology.  And in their WARRING against Christ and His Word -- they fight fiercely to deny – contradict – distort – and challenge Christ’s teaching by falsely prophesying that the “Gog and Magog” Battle and “Armageddon” are two separate Military battles of the Future that will be fought over the Land of Israel in the Middle East soon. 

These WARRING Professed Christians declare that God has given that Land to the Jews as their “Eternal Possession” because ALL off the Jews are His “Chosen People” and He promised Abraham to give them that Land forever.  Not to mention that they claim that Christ intends on ruling from this “Promised Land” in the Middle East for a 1000 years from a rebuilt 3rd Temple in Jerusalem at His 2nd Coming.  So this Land is very important to them.

CLEARLY – it is the False Dispensational Pre-Millennial Eschatology of Man that has convinced most of Christendom today to  believe that Christ’s 1st Great Work of Salvation was NOT finished at the Cross.  And that what He REALLY meant when He said with His last dying breath that “It is FINISHED” didn’t REALLY mean that Salvation was finished until He came a 2nd Time to finish saving all of the 21st Century Jews EN-MASSE.  They claim this is the reason for Christ’s 2nd Coming because ALL of the Jews have always been Christ’s ONLY True “Chosen People” and “the Apple of His eye” and He intends to save ALL of them.  

Dispensationalists like John Hagee even go so far as to say that ANYONE who dares lifts a finger against God’s “chosen people” who are ALL the Jews in Jerusalem and around the world – that God will CURSE THEM.  And Pastor Hagee is especially referring to the whole Nation of America today being “cursed” by Christ if we do NOT stand up for The Nation of Israel!!! 

John Hagee and his Dispensationalist Colleagues who proclaim that there will be a “curse” from God Himself on ALL those who go against the Nation of Israel today -- use what Christ prophesied to Abraham as their guide when we read:

“And I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the Earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3)

And today after the U.S. and the U.K. and France’s bombing of Syria -- one has to question what Christ meant by these words.  In other words – was Pastor Hagee and His Dispensational Colleagues correct?!  Is Christ now punishing the whole world because of the Land of the Middle East that Dispensationalists proclaim God gave to THE JEWS as their “Eternal Everlasting Possession”?! 

CLEARLY -- to come to THE TRUTH -- one needs to understand if ALL Bible Prophecy is centered around 13-16 Million unbelieving Jews in Jerusalem and around the World – or CHRIST HIMSELF?!  I of course believe the latter – that Christ Himself is the Center of ALL Bible Prophecy – NOT the unbelieving Jews of the Middle East and around the World today!!!

Which is why I also believe that the answers to all of these questions about the End-Times can only be found in Christ’s Words -- and in particular the visions that Christ REVEALED to both Daniel and John about the Final Events of History.  For these visions include not only what the Final Events of History entail – but Christ’s DIVINE PLAN for the Human Race which according to Him will CULMINATE on this Earth at His 2nd Coming.

Why Christ told Abraham to walk through the Land

And John to Measure the Temple

It is often asked among Christians inquiring of these End-Times why Christ commanded John in his 3rd Vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 11 to take a measurement of the Temple of God.  CLEARLY – we know what Dispensational Pre-Millennialists believe from their many Prophecy Books and Commentaries on this topic.  For they teach that this mandate from Christ to John meant that the LITERAL Temple in Jerusalem should be measured.  And that is why they teach so passionately that Christ prophesied that the Temple in Jerusalem must be rebuilt so that not only it could be measured to fulfill this Prophecy of Revelation Chapter 11 -- but that “THE ANTICHRIST” could stand up in it and declare himself  to be GOD as part of End-Time prophecies.

Much like the Pharisees and the Sadducees of Christ’s Day – so many “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts are also part of “the LITERAL ONLY Crowd” of Bible scholars today who just like the Pharisees and Sadducees think that interpreting the Bible only LITERALLY is somehow a “Badge of Honor” to be worn with pride.  But it is just a known Biblical fact that Christ spoke in SPIRITUAL TRUTHS and used Symbolism and CRYPTIC LANGUAGE to convey His TRUTHS about not only the Kingdom of Heaven – but also about the Final Events of Human History. 

And LITERALISM is only thinking in a temporal worldly carnal way just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees did who made up the 1st Century “LITERAL ONLY Crowd.”  And clearly we know that they were BLINDED to the Spiritual Truths of Christ’s Word when Paul wrote of “the unbelieving Jews” in the Nation of Israel:

“What then?  Israel has NOT obtained what it seeks; but the Elect have obtained it, and the rest were BLINDED.  Just as it is written: “God has given them a spirit of stupor, eyes that should NOT see and ears that they should NOT hear, to this very day.” (Romans 22:7-8)

Certainly Christ makes NO ONE to sin – He just doesn’t give EVERYONE the Spiritual eyes to see THE  SPIRITUAL TRUTH of His Words and they are “BLINDED.”  And because so many World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts now have come to believe Falsely that Christ was speaking about the LITERAL TEMPLE that He was commanding John to measure in his 3rd Vision – then that is why they teach that in order for this prophecy to be fulfilled that a 3rd Temple must be rebuilt in Jerusalem today.

But what this “Literal at all cost Exegesis Crowd” of “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts REFUSE to accept today – is that Christ spoke in SPIRITUAL TRUTHS.  And that what He spoke was NOT always to be understood with the Carnal mind of Man but always with THE MIND OF CHRIST and with a SPIRITUAL understanding of the TRUTH.  And the measuring of the Temple clearly has SPIRITUAL significance – for Abraham too was told by Christ to “measure” part of the area of the Land that Christ was giving to him by walking around the Land that Christ was giving him as an inheritance and “promised land” as we read recorded in Genesis:

And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are -- northward, southward, eastward, and westward; 15 for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. 16 And I will make your descendants as the dust of the Earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the Earth, then your descendants also could be numbered.17 Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.”  (Gen. 13:14-17)

CLEARLY – if one understands that Christ was speaking in SPIRITUAL TRUTHS – then they can understand that both of these commands were NOT concerned with the LITERAL Temple on Earth or with the LITERAL Earthly Real Estate of “the Promised Land.”  For what Christ was in all reality promising Abraham was Eternal Life in the New Heavens and the New Earth.  For that is the Final Estate and “Promised Land” of all of us “true saved Jews of the Spirit” that Christ chose to save from this Human Race before the foundation of the World. 

And likewise – John being told by Christ to measure the Temple but to leave the “outer court” out of the measurement also has SPIRITUAL SIGNICANCE.  For by telling John to leave the “outer court” out of the measurement of the Temple it was meant to convey that he was to measure only the TRUE Body of Christ.  And anyone in the “outer court” was NOT considered part of the True Body of Christ in Christ’s eyes -- which are the only eyes that count. 

For CLEARLY– Christ had taught John and all of the Disciples that those that He had chosen to save were the only ones who were part of the “True Israel of God” and His True Holy Nation made up of the Remnant of Jews and Gentiles.  In other words -- they were the “living stones” of the Temple which after the Cross was the Body of Christ

And that’s why anyone outside of Christ is NOT considered in Christ’s eyes as Holy – righteous – or His Priests and True Prophets and therefore could NOT be measured as part of the True Temple of Christ.  CLEARLY -- Christ explicitly told us that His own body represented  the New Testament Temple when He prophesied to the Pharisees:

“Destroy this Temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”  Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this Temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”  But He was speaking of the Temple of His Body.” (which refers to His Body being the New Testament Temple of God that replaced the Old LITERAL Temple in Jerusalem) (John 2:19-21)

And this verse is what Christ was trying to convey by telling John that the court “outside” of the Temple’s dimension symbolized the place of those who externally only linked themselves to Christ by professing themselves to be Christians of their own “FREE WILL.”  But in Christ’s eyes they were NOT truly raised up IN HIM because He had NOT chosen to save them before the foundation of the World. 

In other words – those that John saw in the “outer court” represent those today who have only linked themselves with the External Global Church which John describes as APOSTATE in The Book of Revelation.   And their membership there is NOT from Christ choosing to save them -- but by their claiming of their own FREE WILL to be part of the Holy Temple when in Christ’s eyes they had NOT truly entered therein.  CLEARLY – Christ is the One who holds the keys to Eternal Life in Heaven and decides Salvation – NOT MAN.

And Christ REVEALED to John that SPIRITUALLY those in the “outer court” represented those whose souls were never risen with Christ to Eternal Life at the 1st resurrection when Christ Himself rose from the Dead and the souls of us “true Jews of the Spirit” who He had chosen to save before the foundation of the world were raised up with Him.

Those in the “outer court” Represent Unsaved Mankind

What Christ REVEALED to John in his 7th Vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20 is so very important to understand and BELIEVE – for John saw that those who had been raised to life in the 1st resurrection of the soul at the Cross were reigning with Christ in Heaven and on Earth in the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem.

In other words -- the TRUTH of what Christ REVEALED to John that the Final Estate of all saved souls was the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem either in Heaven after death or on Earth while still alive – is one of the GREATEST TRUTHS of all time – REALLY!!!

And what Christ REVEALED to John that those who had died were ALIVE and reigning with Christ in Heaven proves that a prerequisite to Entering Heaven is a New Covenant relationship with Christ which takes away our sins.  And that’s why John was told to only measure those within the Temple as the True Body of Christ and NOT those in the “outer court.”

Anyone can “say” that they are a Christian – for Heaven only knows that MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of people have made this claim in their lifetimes.  But most of them only have the name of Christ and an External Covenant association with Christ if He did NOT chose to save them before the foundation of the World.  In other word – they have no invisible “seal” of “the Blood of Christ” invisibly written on their foreheads that only Christ Himself can write there. 

And to prove that Christ is the ONE who has invisibly marked everyone in this Human Race – Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 Visions that everyone either had “THE MARK OF SALVATION” invisibly written on them by Christ which shows that we “Elect” are Christ’s possession – or John saw that they had “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” invisibly written on them by Christ.  And that alone PROVES that Christ has invisibly ALREADY marked ALL of unsaved mankind with the CRYPTIC NUMBER of 666 to show Satan’s ownership of them – NOT that a Future Antichrist will physically mark anyone.  THINK ABOUT IT!!!

And from this TRUTH of ownership that Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 Visions – we can more readily understand why the “outer court” in John’s 3rd Vision was NOT to be measured.  It was clearly because the measuring had to be done by the Lord’s Scepter of righteousness which only He possesses.  For He is the only one who had the Sovereign right to chose His “Elect” before the foundation of the World – NOT MAN. 

And so what Christ wanted to convey in the measuring of the Temple – was that those who conform to Christ’s image were to be measured as part of the Temple and the rest in the “outer court” were NOT to be included in the dimensions of God’s House as “the living stones” of the New Testament Temple which is Christ’s own Body after the Cross.

And while those who have today linked themselves with the External Global Harlot Church have a certain “form of Godliness” as Christ REVEALED to John – they clearly don’t have the power of the Holy Spirit and thus don’t “measure up” in works of righteousness.  In other words – it is only by “the work of Christ ALONE” that He imputed to us that He chose to save before the foundation of the World – that we have His righteousness that is needed to Enter Heaven.  And only those with Christ’s Righteousness who were part of His TRUE TEMPLE -- which John also understood was “the Ark of the Covenant” – were to be measured.

Christ REVEALED to John in his 3rd Vision that those He chose NOT to save stood outside of the Temple in the wide court and were DECEIVED that they were part of the True Body of Christ.  When in reality they had NO New Covenant Relationship with Christ which takes away their sins which only Christ can give to anyone.

They were definitely part of the External Global Harlot Church – but NOT part of the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ who are those of us who Christ Himself chose to save before the foundation of the World.  CLEARLY -- Christ taught the TRUTH about Salvation -- that one can only be “born again” from above by His Holy Spirit indwelling us – NOT by the FREE WILL choice of Man.  And that’s why only those Christ REVEALED were IN HIM in the True Temple of God were to be measured in John’s 3rd Vision.

Genesis 15:18 is Not an Everlasting Covenant

But Genesis 17:19 is!

It is often though that Genesis 15:18 and Genesis 17:8 are the same “promise” of land that Christ was giving to Abraham – but like the measuring of the Temple that Christ commanded of John to take – there is an underlying SPIRITUAL TRUTH that needs to be considered with these verses and prophecies.  And just as a refresher here are the verses again of the “covenant” or “promise” that Christ made to Abraham when we read:

“On the same day the Lord made a Covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the Great River, the River Euphrates.” (Gen. 15:18) . . . . . and “I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an EVERLASTING POSSESSION; and I will be their God.” (Genesis 17:8)

Certainly if one casually looked at these verses and did NOT consider their SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE – then it would be understandable why so many Dispensationalists insist today that both of these verses prophesy that the Land in the Middle East belongs to the Jews living there as their “Everlasting Possession” that God gave to Abraham FOREVER.  But again – it needs to be reiterated that Christ did NOT always speak in LITERAL TERMS – for the Bible has to be understood with THE MIND OF CHRIST – and Christ often taught in SPIRITUAL TRUTHS and spoke in hidden CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE. 

And CLEARLY – when it came to the “Promised Land” – Christ was painting a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the Land of Canaan as symbolism and CRYPTIC LANGUAGE for HEAVEN which is the “Promised Land” of all of us “saved Jews of the Spirit” who Christ came to Earth to save.

And while it is TRUE that Genesis 17:8 declares that Christ was promising to give Abraham the Land of Egypt and the Land of Canaan for an “EVERLASTING POSSESSION” – Christ telling Abraham to walk around the Land was SYMBOLISM of his receiving Eternal Life.  For Abraham died and NEVER received any of that Earthly Land – THINK ABOUT IT!!!

That BIBLICAL TRUTH is a dead give-away that what Christ was REVEALING to Abraham was the CRYPTIC MESSAGE that he would be the Father of MANY NATIONS and that the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven which began with a small remnant of Hebrew people would one day be a Kingdom that would be as VAST as the Stars of Heaven as we read Christ saying to Abraham:“Look now toward Heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” (Genesis 15:5)

And the hidden CRYPTIC MESSAGE that Christ was truly conveying to Abraham and all of us True Prophets of His today -- was that a REMNANT of ALL the Nations of the World would be included in Christ’s One True Holy Nation which is “the Israel of God.”

In other words – Christ’s prophecy to Abraham about the Land was NEVER a promise of an Earthly inheritance of the Land of Canaan to just the Nation of Israel in the Middle East.  But a promise of Eternal Life that comes with the New Covenant of GRACE that we “true saved Jews of the Spirit” from EVERY NATION would inherit if Christ had chosen to save us before the foundation of the world.  It was NOT a Covenant of any land on this Earth – but a “promise” of Eternal Life in the New Heavens and the New Earth which would one day be our Eternal Estate.

And to prove the TRUTH that only a REMANT would inherit Eternal Life – Christ told Abraham: “Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My Covenant with him (NOT with the descendants of Ishmael who was also a son of Abraham – but with ISAAC!!!) for an EVERLASTING Covenant, and with his descendants after him.” (Genesis 17:19)

This New Covenant of Grace that Christ was prophesying that He would make with the descendants of Isaac which had the SPIRITUAL SIGNICANCE of those of us who were of the seed of Christ -- is also prophesied in Genesis 17:4 – Genesis 17:7 – Daniel 9:27 – Jeremiah 31:31-33 – Matthew 26:28 – Romans 11:27 – Hebrews 10:16 and Galatians 3:29 to name just a few of the sampling of verses that describe the New Covenant of Grace. 

And CLEARLY -- Christ was conveying to Abraham that the Covenant of Grace that He would one day make with the descendants of Isaac was a prerequisite to Entering “the Promised Land of Heaven” and would be an “EVERLASTING COVENANT.” 

And Christ also wanted to convey that only those who were the descendants of “Isaac” and NOT “Ishmael” – who were in reality the seed of Christ – were the rightful “heirs according to the Promise of Eternal Life.”  And that Christ’s heirs would one day inherit the Promised Land of the New Heavens and the New Earth – NOT the Land that Jerusalem sits on in the Middle East.  For Christ taught that the citizenship of those of us “saved Jews of the Spirit” that He came to save were citizens of the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem.

HONESTLY – one can NOT understand the SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE of Salvation without understanding the vital importance of what Christ REVEALED to both Abraham in measuring the Land and John in measuring the Temple.  For Christ was conveying that only He is the True “Promised Land” and the True New Testament Temple – and those who are NOT in Him are NOT part of the Eternal Promise of the New Heavens and the New Earth to come. 

Which is why it just can’t be reiterated enough that Genesis 15:8 is NOT an “Everlasting Covenant” – but that Genesis 17:19 is.  And that the “Everlasting Covenant” was made to “the Israel of God” – NOT to the Nation of Israel in the Middle East today who is to this day made up primarily of “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh.”

With that said – THE TRUTH is that every single promise that God made to Israel about the inheritance of the physical land were “conditional promises” and were TOTALLY fulfilled by Christ in the Old Testament Days.  And that means that Amos 9:14-15 that Dispensationalists declare was fulfilled on May 14, 1948 is WRONG – for all the promises concerning the Land were fulfilled in Joshua’s Day.

In other words – all the promises of the physical Land of Canaan in Joshua’s Day were “conditional” – while all the promises of an “everlasting inheritance” – Kingdom – and the New Covenant of Grace which was strengthened and confirmed by Christ’s Death on the Cross were “unconditional Promises” made to Abraham which Christ meant were intended to be for the descendants of “Isaac” who were those of Christ’s seed which is the True Election in Christ.  And those “unconditional Promises” had to do with HEAVEN – NOT the Land of Canaan. 

The Conditional Promise of the Land of Israel

CLEARLY -- Dispensationalists have now convinced MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of Professed Christians to believe that the Land that the City of Jerusalem is sitting on is the Jews “Everlasting Possession” and anyone NOT defending the Nation of Israel’s right to this Land will be cursed by God.  But certainly in Christ’s eyes – which are the only eyes that count – the promises of the physical Land of Canaan were “conditional promises.”

God’s Word is the only TRUTH in this World -- and He speaks “authoritatively” which means that no one should trample His Word under foot just to uphold old Judaic beliefs that popular Book Authors of today teach without any basis of TRUTH whatsoever.  For when the Scriptures are examined closely – one can see plainly that Christ kept His promises to Israel concerning the Land because the promises of the LITERAL Land of Canaan to the Nation of Israel were NEVER unconditional.  Nor could they be EVERLASTING in God’s economy because He prophesied that this whole sin-cursed Earth will all be destroyed by FIRE at His 2nd Coming – Jerusalem included!!!

And to prove this TRUTH – Christ had Moses declare to the Israelites that the promises of the Land were CONDITIONAL when we read:

“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His Covenant which He swore to your Fathers, as it is this day.  Then it shall be, if you by any means forget the Lord your God, and follow other gods, and serve them and worship them, I testify against you this day that you shall surely perish.  As the Nations which the Lord destroys before you, so you shall perish, because you would NOT be obedient to the voice of the Lord your God.” (Deut. 8:18-20)

Christ couldn’t say it any plainer than that – the promise of the Land was CONDITIONAL upon the Israelites serving and worshipping only Him as the one True GOD.  And we know how that worked out!!!  The Nation of Israel did NOT keep their end of the promise which was CONDITIONAL to them keeping the Land of Canaan that God was giving to them.

In other words – the Covenant Promises of the LITERAL Land of Canaan to the Nation of Israel were NEVER unconditional promises and the “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts today in this now 21st Century who make such claims only show a real lack of the knowledge of the Scriptures.  Or else they just REFUSE to believe that the promises that Christ made to the Nation of Israel were FULFILLED by Him but were later forsaken by them.

CLEARLY – it is the later – for Dispensationalists REFUSE to accept THE TRUTH from Scripture that the Land given to the Nation of Israel in Moses’ Day were CONDITIONAL on whether or NOT they followed Him or became unfaithful and followed after the false gods of the Pagan Nations that surrounded them.  This TRUTH was made very clear to the Israelites many times by Christ when He warned them through His True Prophets that their unfaithfulness to Him would end in their losing the Land. 

In other words – Christ made it abundantly clear many times that He would no longer be obligated if they broke their promise to Him of being faithful – which they DID!!!  And now today – Christ owes “the Jews of the Flesh” NOTHING when it comes to the Land of the Middle East – REALLY!!!

And NOT to be disrespectful – but going to War in the Middle East over the Land of Jerusalem is NOT “a hill worth dying for” as the saying goes.  And the Dispensationalists who say that it is because they falsely believe that Christ owes the Jews that Land as their “Eternal Everlasting Possession” – have become more “Politically minded” than “Biblically minded.”  For again – Christ owes the Jews of this 21st Century NOTHING when it comes to the Land that the City of Jerusalem is sitting on -- for He kept all of His promises to give them the Land in Joshua’s Day.

Amillennialists like me understand the difference between Christ’s UNCONDITIONAL Eternal Covenant of Grace that Christ prophesied He was giving to Abraham who was to become the Father of MANY NATIONS – and the CONDITIONAL Promise of the Land of Canaan which was given to the Nation of Israel in Moses’ Day – that they are NOT the same.

And it is sad indeed that so many Professed Christians now believe THE LIE that Pre-Millennial Eschatology teaches -- that Christ will curse anyone who comes against the Nation of Israel who they say is still “the Apple of Christ’s eye.”   And that God will “curse” anyone or any Nation that tries to take the Land in the Middle East away from the Nation of Israel.

 CLEARLY – Dispensationalists are using “scare tactics” when they resort to using Genesis 12:3 in saying that God will curse anyone who dares come against the Nation of Israel today by taking their God-given Land -- or anyone who dares use what they claim is Evil “Replacement Theology” that the New Testament Church has replaced the Nation of Israel.  When Christ tells us explicitly through Abraham that His Covenant and promise of Eternal Life is made with only those who are the descendants of Isaac – NOT Ishmael.

CLEARLY – when Christ told Abraham: “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you ALL families of the Earth will be blessed” as we read in Genesis 12:3 – it is CHRIST who is the TRUE ISRAEL – NOT the Nation of Israel today.  For it is IN CHRIST that all the families of the Earth have been blessed.  He is the ONE who has saved the remnant out of all the Nations of the World which has fulfilled the prophecy now that Abraham would be the Father of MANY Nations – NOT the Nation of Israel in this 21st Century.

Christ has Fulfilled All the Promises about the Land

It can’t be reiterated enough now that the whole world is fighting over who owns the Land in the Middle East today and WMD’s could result in the annihilation of this Human Race.  When clearly – Christ has fulfilled ALL of the promises that He made to the Nation of Israel in Moses’ Day concerning the Land of Canaan when we read:

“So the Lord gave to Israel all the land which He had sworn to give to their Fathers, and they took possession of it and dwelt in it.  The Lord gave them rest all around, according to all that He had sworn to their Fathers.  And not a man of all their enemies stood against them; (for) the Lord delivered ALL their enemies into their hand.  Not a word FAILED of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the house of Israel. ALL came to pass.” (Joshua 21;43-45)

Today Dispensationalists insist that these prophecies were NOT all fulfilled by Christ – that He somehow owes them the Land of Israel as their “Everlasting possession” regardless of what He prophesied to Abraham about the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven going to the MANY Nations of the World which Abraham was a Father of.  And regardless of what happened in Joshua’s Day when the Israelites DID indeed possess the Land that Christ had given to them.  And they also claim that Christ has NOT given them rest from their enemies or Peace today – that He somehow owes them that part of the promise of the Land also – I DON’T THINK SO!!!

CLEARLY – the lack of acceptance of Christ’s Word of fulfilled prophecies is at the root of most of the ERROR in Christendom today and indeed the #1 SIGN that Christ gave of His 2nd Coming which is SPIRITUAL DECLENSION.  And that Spiritual declension is clearly more evidence that demands a verdict that man is AT WAR with Christ and His Word when Professed Christians claim that Christ still owes the Nation of Israel the Land in the Middle East today. 

For when the Nation of Israel forsook God and followed after false gods – then His Judgment came upon them and they lost their Land by Christ allowing their enemies to surround them and conquer them and drive them from the Land.  Scripture is abundantly clear on this point!!!

The Most Important Message to our Apocalypse Generation

The promise to Abraham and his “seed’ was NOT a promise of the LITERAL Land of Canaan – for Christ’s Word teaches that the “seed” in view is Christ’s seed through “Isaac” – and it’s prophesying that Heaven is our “Eternal Promised Land” if Christ chose to save us.   And while World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts write one Prophecy Book after another and Commentary after Commentary to deny this Biblical TRUTH – Christ had Paul convey yet another very important SPIRITUAL TRUTH that we would do well to understand when we read:

“Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made.  He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of ONE, “And to your seed,” who is Christ.  And this I say, that the Law, which was four hundred and thirty years later, cannot annul the (New) Covenant (of Grace) that was confirmed before by God in Christ, that it should make the promise of no effect.” (Galatians 3:16-17)

CLEARLY – the Promise of Eternal Life that Christ made with Abraham is that the true “Promised Land” is HEAVEN – and that it can NOT be annulled or declared invalid because of the Law.  And the reason why – is because the Promise of Eternal Life was made BEFORE the Law or the 10 Commandments were even given to Moses.  THINK ABOUT IT!!!  In other words -- it was ALWAYS Christ’s DIVINE PLAN to save a Remnant of us in this sin-cursed Human Race even before giving Moses the Law of the 10 Commandments.

And that’s why Christ’s DIVINE PLAN was NOT a promise to “seeds” which is plural – but to ONE “seed” and that “seed” is the True seed of Israel who is CHRIST.  And He is alerting us in this CRYPTIC HIDDEN MESSAGE to make no mistake that it was NOT a promise to the LITERAL Nation of Israel in the Middle East – but was a promise to “ONE” – and that ONE BEING was Christ. 

And clearly – the promise was of Eternal Life in Heaven – for Christ knew that the New Heavens and the New Earth was always our “Eternal Everlasting Possession” – NOT any plot of land on this sin-cursed Earth.

Paul was speaking of the unconditional promise to the True Israel of God which is made up of Jews and Gentiles that Christ chose before the foundation of the world.  And it is an “unconditional promise of Eternal Life” because we cease from our works being justified by His work.  CLEARLY -- Christ is the Seed in whom all the Nations would be blessed.  It was not a blessing of a literal land -- but of the spiritual inheritance of the “Promised Land” in Christ that Christ was promising to give us through Abraham and Isaac.  

And it is an inheritance that is far greater than any hallowed ground in the Middle East which is WHY the Middle East today is NOT “a hill worth dying on” as the saying goes.

While the “Everlasting Covenant of Grace” that Christ confirmed and strengthened in His blood as we read in Hebrews 9:15-17 – is certainly a TRUTH that is worth standing up for and even dying to defend – for it is much more precious than a temporal deed to a plot of disputed land in the Middle East today.  For our inheritance in this Kingdom is infinitely more glorious.   THINK ABOUT IT!!!

And certainly Christ was NOT interested in being a King of a worldly throne as was “typed” in Old Testament rulers like David and Solomon.  For Christ’s Kingdom has always been a SPIRITUAL KINGDOM.  And our inheritance after Christ saves us is in the SPIRITUAL CITY of the Heavenly Jerusalem where our saved souls exist now on Earth waiting for the 2nd Coming of Christ.  Christ always taught that His Kingdom was NOT of this world -- but was of a habitation in HEAVEN that was far greater than any Kingdom of Man on this sin-cursed Earth.  And because He is NOT of this world – neither can His Kingdom be now or in the Future for a temporary 1000 years.  In other words – His Kingdom is Spiritual and ETERNAL.  And that is why Christ said to Pilate:

“My Kingdom is NOT of this World: if My Kingdom were of this World, then would My servants fight, that I should NOT be delivered to the Jews (referring to “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh”): but now is My Kingdom NOT from hence.” (John 18:36)  And Christ said to “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh”: “Ye are from beneath; I am from above (referring to HEAVEN): ye are of this World; I am NOT of this World.” (John 8:23)

The world’s Kingdoms are physical – earthly – temporal -- and are built by the hands of men.  But Christ was teaching us that He had come to institute a Kingdom that is NOT of this world -- but of an Eternal EVERLASTING nature through His Holy Spirit indwelling in those of us that He came to save.

The Millennial Kingdom that Christ Inaugurated

Christ has defeated “the prince of this world” who is SATAN by His death and resurrection as we read in Hebrews 2:14.  And He has risen to rule as King from a SPIRITUAL THRONE and from the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem which is where our saved souls exist here on Earth if Christ has saved us.  This is His Millennial Kingdom that He came to inaugurate by dying on the Cross which will NEVER be overcome.  And we “saved Jews of the Spirit” – by having been risen with Him -- have been translated into the dominion of this Kingdom.  

It is NOT an Earthly Kingdom where The Nation of Israel sits upon in the Middle East that Abraham was given as “the Promised Land” – NO!!! – for Christ’s Kingdom is a Spiritual Kingdom of the Israel of God which is within us.   This was a prophecy of the Kingdom of Heaven that Christ would bring as the Messiah of His “Elect” and “Chosen” which would be a Remnant from ALL the Nations of the World. 

And the evidence that demands a verdict is Paul prophesying the TRUTH that we have ALREADY been translated into Christ’s Millennial Kingdom of Heaven and rule with Christ NOW in His Millennial Spiritual Kingdom today.  For our inheritance that Christ REVEALED to Abraham was an inheritance in the New Heavens and the New Earth which will be our Final Estate when we read: 

“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” (Col. 1:12-14)

We have ALREADY been delivered from the bondage of the Kingdom of Satan and the worldly powers and controls that corrupt – and have ALREADY been translated into Christ’s Heavenly Kingdom where we exist now in our saved soul existence in the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem if Christ has chosen to save us.

Thus we have rule over the enemy as we read in Luke 10:17-19 – and we do reign NOW on this Earth in the Spirit of Christ.  The Israelites in the Middle East today and all around the world -- along with the Dispensationalists who are really “Jews in New Testament Apparel” -- still to this very day want a Messiah who would rule from a LITERAL Earthly Throne in Jerusalem.  And they want Christ to fight NOT just the Roman occupiers like they wanted in the Old Testament Days – but anyone who will take what they think is the “Promised  Land” and the Jews “Everlasting Eternal Possession.”   

Our Inheritance is in Heaven

It can’t be reiterated enough that Abraham died and he NEVER received any of the Earthly Land that was promised to him – which only proves that Christ was NOT talking about an Earthly inheritance but a HEAVENLY INHERITANCE in the New Heavens and the New Earth.  That is the “Everlasting Possession” that He was promising to give to the descendants of Isaac who were really those of us that are the “seed of Christ.”

CLEARLY – Christ wanted to convey to us that we “saved Jews of the Spirit” inherit all the promises made to Abraham through HIM.  And Paul is declaring in Galatians 3:16-17 that the promises were NOT made non effectual -- nor have they been abrogated.  And the reason why is because the Israel of God is defined by God and not by vain genealogies as we read in Matthew 3:9 -- John 8:38-40 and Titus 3:9.  And that is evidence that demands a verdict that what Christ was promising Abraham was the “Everlasting possession” of the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem which is where our saved souls exist right now on this Earth if Christ has saved us.

Some World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts who are AT WAR with Christ and His Word today argue that:  “Yes, Galatians chapter 3:26 refers to The New Testament Church -- but that’s not speaking of The True Nation of Israel who are truly God’s “Chosen People.”  

In other words – these Dispensationalists claim that the Church is NOT the seed of Isaac who will inherit the “Promised Land” that was given to Abraham.  They argue this because to accept THAT TRUTH would make their theories about Christ having 2 bodies of people which they claim are: 1) The Nation of Israel – and 2) The New Testament Church untrue.  

But the evidence that demands a verdict that Christ only has ONE TRUE BODY of believers who have already inherited the “Promised Land” of His Millennial Kingdom in the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem is taken from Genesis 21 where we read: “and in Thy seed shall ALL the Nations be blessed . . . . in Isaac shall Thy seed be called.”

CLEARLY -- the seed of Isaac is Israel or Jacob – for the only other alternative is the seed of Esau – and clearly Christ’s Word explains “Election and Predestination” by declaring that God “loved Jacob but hated Esau even before they were born to do anything good or evil.”   And so if we are being true to the Word of God and to Biblical Logic -- not to mention being honest with ourselves – then when we read: “In Isaac shall thy seed be called” – that can only refer to the True Israel of God which is Jacob or the seed of Isaac and in reality is the seed of Christ Himself.

To qualify as “a true Jew of the Spirit” in the sight of God we have to be circumcised not in flesh -- but in heart as we read in Romans 2:28-29.  And we most certainly have to be of the Seed of Isaac who is Jacob and also of the “seed of CHRIST.”  And clearly – “Christ alone” redeemed Jacob on the cross -- making all of us “Jacobs” who are the SONS OF GOD His “saved Jews of the Spirit” who are now in His Millennial Kingdom of Heaven on Earth which is a SPIRITUAL KINGDOM.

Two Nations at War with Each Other

In this Great TRUTH about the “Election and Predestination” of Jacob and Esau -- we can also get a better understanding of what Christ was trying to convey with His True Gospel of Grace being “Election” and NOT FREE WILL.  For clearly Christ said to Isaac and Rebecca even before the twins in Rebecca’s womb had been born to do anything good or evil:

“Jacob have I loved, and Esau have I hated.”

And the CRYPTIC SPRITUAL PICTURE that Christ was painting for us was that Jacob represented the Kingdom of Heaven which was Christ’s Kingdom of the True Israel of God and were those of us “Jacobs” that He had “Elected” to save even before the foundation of the World and whom God loved and sent His Son to die for. And Esau represented the Kingdom of Satan -- the reprobates who Christ NEVER chose to save or die for on the Cross.

The Truth of “Election” explains Christ saying that “He loved the World” – when in reality the SPIRITUAL TRUTH is that Christ only loved the “Jacobs” of this world – NOT the “Esaus.” Jacob is the “Seed” of Israel who is CHRIST’S SEED in whom all the Nations of the world would be Blessed -- which is what Christ was trying to convey with His telling Abraham:

“I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in YOU (referring ultimately to CHRIST) all the families of the Earth shall be Blessed.” (Gen. 12:3)

 The hidden CRYPTIC meaning of this verse is what Romans Chapter 9 signifies -- that Israel was the son of Isaac and a “type” of Christ who is the TRUE Israel of God.  And CLEARLY -- before Jacob and Esau were born to Isaac – we read that they struggled against each other in the womb.  And that’s when Christ told Rebecca that two nations were in her womb.  

And these two nations symbolized the Kingdom of Heaven which is “Jacob” -- and the Kingdom of this world which is “Esau.”  And clearly – the inhabitants of these two SPIRITUAL KINGDOMS and SPIRITUAL CITIES make up the whole Human Race – for everyone who has ever lived on this Earth has existed in one of these two Kingdoms and SPIRITUAL CITIES.

For those of us whose saved souls exist on Earth in the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem are the “Jacobs” that Christ loved   – and those whose unsaved souls exist on Earth in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” are the “Esaus” that Christ hated.   And these two Spiritual Kingdoms and two Spiritual Cities have been at enmity with each other since the Garden of Eden.  One ruled by their prince who is SATAN in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” -- and the other by our Prince who is Christ in the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem.

And this struggle in the womb between Israel and Esau was a SIGN or a hidden CRYPTIC MESSAGE of the on-going struggle between good and evil that will exist on this Earth until the 2nd Coming of Christ to END the Spiritual Warfare that has existed between the “Jacobs” and the “Esaus” since the beginning of time.

There can be no denying that Christ taught that we are either of this World -- or we are NOT of this world and that His Kingdom was also NOT of this World.  And that the seed of Isaac was Jacob who was the son whom God loved.  CLEARLY -- ALL roads lead to the same conclusion – that the Nation of Israel which started with a handful of Hebrew people in Abraham’s Day was a shadow [skia] signifying the struggle between the two SPIRITUAL KINGDOMS of this World.   And that Jacob’s name [yaaqob] means “supplanter or circumventer” – which was given to him by Christ because NOT only did his hand grip the heel of his brother Esau – but Esau himself understood why this was the TRUTH when even he declared:

“And Esau said, “Is he not rightly named Jacob?  For he has supplanted me these two times.  He took away my birthright, and now look, he has taken away my blessing!” (Genesis 27:36)

Jacob was the “supplanter” because he came last -- but was DEFINITELY “chosen” and made the first and had the power of God over Esau.  God signifying this changed Jacob’s name to Israel [yisrael] – meaning “the power of God.”  And this title was bestowed upon Jacob because his posterity would represent the children of God who would prevail over the kingdom of Satan in the power of Christ. 

And that TRUTH is so important in understanding who Christ declares the “Jacobs” are even today and why “Jacob’s Trouble” which is what Christ called “the Great Tribulation” -- does NOT apply to just the JEWS of the Nation of Israel in the Middle East today.  But applies to the “Jacobs” that Christ chose to save before we were born to do anything good or evil!!!

Christ Reveals who His True Israel of God is -- which is

The only Holy Nation He has Ever Had

CLEARLY – we learn from all of this that The Nation of Israel was a representation of the power of God in man -- that He is the Prince that has the power of God with man and that he prevails. The true Israel that was brought out of Egypt as we read in Matthew 2:15 – which represents Christ’s true “chosen People” as we read in 1st Peter 2:4 -- and the true Son of the Father as we read in 2nd John 1:3 refers to CHRIST even though the LITERAL Nation of Israel was called all these things prefiguring Him.

And Christ had Paul prophesy that there has always been only a REMNANT saved by Grace – NEVER the whole Nation of Israel and never ALL of the Gentiles who came later either – but only a REMNANT.  And Paul understood that this Israel of the “Promise” just like in Abraham’s Day would be a remnant defined by God – NOT by Man.  And that is why we read that Paul was sad because he loved his fellow Jews – many of whom were his Colleagues in the Sanhedrin who were also Pharisees like Paul. 

But after his conversion Paul’s eyes were opened by Christ to understand that a “TRUE JEW” is NOT by flesh or genealogical line and that not ALL of the Jews would be saved but only a REMNANT.

The idea that RACE or Jewish lineage somehow meant everything to God is exactly where many of the Esteemed Religious Jewish Leaders of Christ’s Day made their mistake when Christ walked down the Banks of the Jordan River and was Baptized by John in Jerusalem.  And though “the Jews of the Flesh” didn’t understand and most of them REFUSED to believe it – Christ DID come as the King of the Jews.  But He only came to save “the Jews of the Spirit” and NOT “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” which most of them in Jerusalem were.

He DID come to rule in the Kingdom of Israel – but it was in His Spiritual Millennial Kingdom that was inaugurated at the Cross after His resurrection from the dead.  And He reigns now with those of us whose souls rose with Him in the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem on Earth – NOT in the physical City of Jerusalem in the Middle East which is something that Paul understood when he prophesied:

“For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. 23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through (the) promise (of Eternal Life), 24 which things are symbolic (written in hidden CRYPTIC LANGUAGE).

For these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar -- for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is (and still is today in the Middle East), and is in bondage with her children—  (because it is primarily made up of “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh”)  but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.” (which refers to the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem which if we are saved is where we exist on Earth in our saved soul existence) (Gal. 4:22-26)

CLEARLY – these verses are evidence that demand a verdict that Christ DID come to set the captives FREE when He translated our saved souls into His SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem by His Death and resurrection.  And He DID come to build again the Temple – for He taught that it was His own Body had become the New Testament Temple of God after the Cross with us “saved Jews of the Spirit” becoming the “living stones” of that New Testament Temple.

And He DID come to end the warfare and rebellion against Him -- for if He has saved us we now have a PEACE with Him in knowing that our inheritance is the “Everlasting Eternal Possession” of the New Heavens and the New Earth and this sin-curse Earth is NOT our Final Estate or “Promised Land” that Christ gave to Abraham.  But clearly – “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” have remained AT WAR with Christ and are today fighting this Final Spiritual Battle.

Those that Christ Marked with “The Mark of the Beast”

Will Never Enter the “Promised Land”

The “Judaizers” in Christ’s Day are just like the Dispensationalists today who are really Jews in New Testament Apparel with many of them also being supporters of the Hebrew Roots Movement.  And they will NEVER accept THE TRUTH that the Israel of God where God’s Elect dwell will NEVER be the LITERAL Political Nation of the Israel of the Middle East today and that Christ will NEVER return to this Earth to set up a physical Kingdom like the Kingdoms of Man. 

And the reason why Christ is NOT returning to set up a physical Kingdom for a 1000 years -- is because those of us who have been saved by Christ dwell in His Nation of the Israel of God in our saved soul existence on this Earth in the SPIRITUAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem where Christ reigns NOW in His Millennial Spiritual Kingdom of Heaven.

CLEARLY -- the Land of Israel in the Middle East does NOT matter in Christ’s Economy because Christ came to fulfill the Promises that He made to Abraham about the “Promised Land” of Heaven being our Eternal Inheritance.  And the LITERAL Land where the City of Jerusalem sits in the Middle East is NOT the “Promised Land.”

The reason why so many REFUSE to believe this TRUTH is because they are just as BLINDED to the TRUTH of Christ’s Words about His 2nd Coming as the Pharisees and the Sadducees were about His 1st Coming.  And now that Christ is unsealing and unlocking the mysteries of the visions that were REVEALED to Daniel and John about these End-Times – we can understand that having a “reprobate mind” which is a mind that has been BLINDED to the TRUTH -- is the CRYPTIC LANGUAGE that Christ was trying to convey through John’s 4th Vision of “THE MARK OF THE BEAST.”

CLEARLY– Christ REVEALED to John that He Himself had invisibly marked all those who were “the Esaus” that He HATED and chose NOT to save with the “MARK OF THE BEAST” showing that they belonged to Satan just like Esau did even before he was born to do anything Good or Evil in this world when we read:

He (which refers to Christ – NOT a Future Antichrist) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of THE BEAST (who is Satan), or the number of his name.   Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of THE BEAST, for it is the number of (unsaved) man: His number is 666.” (Rev. 13:16-18)

Christ was trying to convey in John’s 4th Vision that only He could mark mankind – for He is the only one who was present before the foundation of the World who decided who the “Jacobs” and the “Esaus” would be – in other words who He had “Elected” to save from out of the Human Race.   And clearly – the “Esaus” that Christ HATED have a “reprobate mind” having been marked with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” and possessed by Satan and his Antichrist Spirit. 

A “reprobate mind” is an “unapproved mind” – or an unsound mind and a “flawed mind” that can NOT make sound judgments because it is a mind that belongs to Satan.  And it is clearly a mind that is ANTITHETICAL to the MIND OF CHRIST and at ENMITY with Christ as we read in 1st Cor. 2:16.  And clearly -- it is the “reprobate mind” ruled by Satan that is ruling the world today and has been deceived by Satan to foolishly MAKE WAR in one Final Spiritual Battle against CHRIST HIMSELF.

And this TRUTH is shown throughout John’s 7 Visions where Christ REVEALS to John that the False Prophets under the inspiration of Satan will be led in a Final Rebellion and would be AT WAR with Christ and His Word as the Final Event in History before the 2nd Coming of Christ takes place.  John saw that the False Prophets all around the Globe would “cut truth off” and would be selling LIES in place of THE TRUTH which is the CRYPTIC meaning of “the Buyers and the Sellers.” 

And while World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts falsely teach that no one will be able to buy in Department Stores if they have been “Left Behind” after the Secret Rapture if they take the physical “MARK OF THE BEAST” on their foreheads and their right hand – Christ’s Word teaches THE TRUTH.  For Christ REVEALED to John that it is the False Prophets who will be selling LIES and that counterfeit Christians will be buying those LIES in the place of Christ’s TRUTHS about these End-Times even BEFORE the Rapture takes place!!!

Christ is the True Israel and Essence of its Being

Sadly – the exact same false teaching of the Millennial Kingdom of Christ is being promoted all around the Globe in the External Global Churches as it was at the 1st Coming of Christ now at His 2nd Coming.  For “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts have forsaken the Words of Christ by denying – contradicting – distorting and challenging His True Eschatology of these End-Times and have instead promoted the False Eschatology of Man and what it teaches about the Millennial Kingdom of Christ being a physical Kingdom of Man – NOT a SPIRITUAL KINGDOM like Christ taught. 

And that False Eschatology teaches that the Millennial Kingdom of Christ will finally be inaugurated in the not-too-distant Future after 7 years of Tribulation when Christ will then return to set up Kingdom on Earth for 1000 years.  These Dispensational Pre-Millennialists look for a 3rd Temple to be rebuilt where they teach that Christ will LITERALLY reign from the New rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem and will again institute animal sacrifice and the Old Order of the Ceremonial Worship of Himself. 

But the question that should be asked by all Professed Christians today is: “Is it Christ’s DIVINE PLAN that there be a restoration of the Jewish Religion that He NEVER taught?!” 

To be sure -- “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” today have been declared a Nation again on May 14, 1948 by the decree of Man.  And they are endeavoring right now to rebuild a 3rd Temple in the City of Jerusalem and to restore their Priesthood and their Jewish religious order.  But will Christ ever again accept “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” as a Nation and condone their return to the Carnal Ordinances of the Old Covenant and the Old Jewish Ceremonial Worship of Him?! 

In other words – why would He condone what “the Jews of the Flesh” are doing right now to prepare the way for the Messiah when He is clearly the Messiah who CAME?!  And when He came the 1st time -- He clearly replaced the Old Covenant Ceremonial Worship of Himself with the New Covenant of GRACE and the New Order of THE SPIRITUAL WORSHIP of Himself – so why would he ever revert back to the OLD?!              

The answer is HE WON’T!!!  The “unsaved Jews of the Flesh” in Jerusalem and all around the Globe along with their Dispensational Pre-Millennial brothers and sisters who are really Jews in New Testament Apparel – are only deluding themselves in thinking that Christ will EVER Return to revert back to the Old Covenant and the Old Order of Ceremonial Worship when by His death and resurrection He established the New Covenant of GRACE and the New Order of SPIRITUAL WORSHIP of Himself.

AND HERE’S THE TRUTH – by His obedience to the Moral Law – Christ put an END to the rule and dominion of it as we read in Romans 10:4.  And by His obedience to the Ceremonial Law He put an END to it as we read in Hebrews 10:1-22.  His shed Blood put an END to animal sacrifices FOREVER.  And His Priesthood put an END to the Earthly Old Order of Ceremonial worship FOREVER.  Not to mention that His entrance to the Throne of God in Heaven as the Son of David put an END to the need of an Earthly Throne of David FOREVER.

In other words – His shed Blood – His Priesthood – His entrance into Heaven – His exaltation to the Throne of God in Heaven – is the effectual accomplishment of our Salvation and God’s Eternal purpose of His Coming to Earth the 1st time.  And His 2ndComing is NOT to inaugurate His Millennial Kingdom on Earth – HARDLY!!!  For the reason for His 2nd Coming is the CONSUMMATION – the CULMINATION – or bringing to COMPLETION the realized Millennial Spiritual Kingdom that was inaugurated at the Cross.  And clearly -- His resurrection from the dead is what made the Millennial Kingdom of Christ a REALITY – and His 2nd Coming is what will CONSUMMATE IT!!!

An Extremely Important Closing Thought!

I know this Commentary has been long but I would be remiss if I didn’t add this extremely important closing thought from Christ’s Awesome True Eschatology – and that is:

If ever Christ should again receive the sacrifices of Jewish Ceremonial Worship from human hands upon a Material Altar in a rebuilt 3rd Temple in Jerusalem in the near Future – it would mean that the Christ we “true saved Jews of the Spirit” worship is an IMPOSTER.  That the Blood that He shed on the Cross was USELESS to raise our souls to Eternal Life.  That the Gospel of “Election” and GRACE is A LIE and that we are still all lost in our sins – GOD FORBID!!!

And praise the Lord that none of that is THE TRUTH.  For the Old Order of Ceremonial Worship that was taught by the Pharisees which later became known as “Judaism” -- is one of the False Religions that will cease to exist at the 2nd Coming of Christ because like so many other False Religions it is a CHRIST REJECTING RELIGION.  While the True Gospel of Christianity that Christ taught that is a CHRIST ACCEPTING RELIGION that will go on into Eternity. 

CLEARLY -- time is fast running out on this Human Race and there is not much time left to accept THE TRUTHS of Christ’s True Eschatology today.  But until Christ Himself sounds that 7th and Final Trumpet – I will be forever sitting at His Feet listening to Him tell me about these End-Times and will always be . . . . .  

In His Service!!!
