No longer are God’s people to prepare for failure in disaster, but to prepare for VICTORY in YESHUA Savior, Healer, Deliverer, Christ Jesus, LORD and King.
I awoke this morning Sunday July 17, 2016 to hear God speaking wisdom and understanding of the end times in which we have been chosen to live as the “Israel of God” in the victory of the power of Christ Jesus, Yeshua.
God is unraveling the tangled mystery of current world disorder and the reordering of the world to His own precious heavenly Kingdom. The secrets of understanding and transforming the world in turmoil are to be found in biblical history “His-story” of Abraham and Isaac verses Ishmael on into Esau trading the blessing for self-gratification and Jacob becoming Israel. Then through Joseph, Moses, and finally Joshua the clear type of Yeshua Messiah who is called Jesus the Christ.
The blessing of God is upon Abram who became Abraham, God’s chosen father of many nations. Abraham’s seed is beyond numbering as the stars in the sky. Isaac, the promised son of the seed of Abraham, was to be born through Sarah.
Abraham in doubt after many years of waiting for the son of promise to be born, birthed Ishmael by Hagar, an Egyptian bondservant.
Later Sarah did give birth to Isaac the promised son after which Ishmael was cast out of the inheritance of Abraham. However, God promised that He would make a great nation of Ishmael also.
Isaac received the inheritance of Abraham and passed it on to Jacob who became Israel, the chosen of God. Ishmael grew up in the wilderness and became as a wild donkey that no man could tame or control, Genesis 16:12 NIV. “He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.”
Israel is the linage through which the Jewish people grew as God’s chosen people, the inheritors of the blessings of God through Abraham and the birth nation for Yeshua, the Messiah, Christ Jesus, the Son of Jehovah, the one true God of all creation.
Ishmael is the linage through which the Arabian peoples who were outside the inheritance of Abraham came to be many nations.
To this day the Arab nations strongly claim and covet the blessings of Abraham that were given to the Jewish people through Isaac. They strongly believe that the blessing is truly theirs and has been taken by the Jews. In general the Arab people have been trained throughout history to hate and to seek, to kill, and destroy the Jews.
The Plain and Simple Truth of Today
Yeshua Messiah, Jesus Christ is the pure and complete blessing of God for ALL peoples, the Jew, the Arab, and the Gentile. All people can only become one under the blessing of God Almighty through Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus the Christ.
In Christ there is neither Jew nor Arab or Gentile. In Christ there is one people restored to the original created state of man in Adam before the fall. The blessings of God in Christ include the blessings of Abraham and more.
The Blessing of God including the blessings through Abraham are fully available to all people who are in Christ Jesus, Messiah Yeshua. The full blessings of God are not in those outside of Christ, Yeshua. The way for the Arab or anyone else to receive the full blessing of Abraham and more is to receive Christ Jesus, Yeshua Messiah.
Being in Christ is purely a relationship and NOT a religion. All the religions of the world are about seeking the blessings of God through some other way apart from Yeshua, Christ Jesus the Messiah, LORD and King of this world.
Religions of the world are another gospel of seeking to obtain the blessings of God found only through Christ Jesus, Yeshua.
Religions are of the nature of either Ishmael or Esau.
Ishmael was cast out from the blessings of Abraham and the Spirit promises of God. Instead God blessed Ishmael and his mother Hagar with natural blessings including being multiplied to become a great nation. Through the generations Ishmael’s descendants developed many eastern religions to replace the true Spirit blessing of Abraham from which they had been cast out.
Esau, the firstborn son of Isaac, was in the linage of the blessings of Abraham. However, Esau traded the Spirit blessings for self-gratification of his strong appetites for natural things above spiritual things.
This concept after the order of Esau substituted strong self-sufficiency and enlarged appetites of self-gratification for the true ways of God in many western religions. These religions elevate man apart from dependency upon the Spirit of Christ.
They are usually mixed with a portion of truth from the linage of the blessing and thereby become very cunning deceptions that have enticed many from the Spirit life of God in Christ Jesus, Yeshua.
All the wars, conflicts, and disorders of the world revolve around or they are rooted in the conflict of the true blessings of God in Christ Jesus and the striving to obtain the blessings apart from Christ Jesus, which are anti-Christ systems of beliefs or religions.
The Spiritual “Israel of God” and the “New Jerusalem”
The true blessing of God are imparted to the true “Israel of God” which is all human beings that are in Christ Jesus, Messiah Yeshua, those in whom Christ Jesus now lives by the Spirit of God. These are a new creation, who in Christ are become faithful saints of the linage of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/ Israel.
All mankind including those of the linage of Ishmael can become the “Israel of God” in Yeshua, Christ Jesus.
“For neither is circumcision anything [of any importance], nor uncircumcision, but [only] a new creation [which is the result of a new birth — a spiritual transformation — a new nature in Christ Jesus]. Peace and mercy to those who ·follow [walk/live by] this rule — and to ·all of God’s people [ the Israel of God; either: (1) Jewish Christians or (2) the church as the “new Israel”], Galatians 6:15-16 AMP.
The “New Jerusalem” is the spiritual ruling city of the “Israel of God,” the Kingdom of God on earth. It is the Bride of Christ adorned for her Husband being formed (coming down) from heaven on earth now in this season. It is God with His people described in Revelation 21.
The insane violent conflicts of today make sense as we see the real core of the war on Yeshua/ Christ Jesus by anti-Christ forces trying to stop the Kingdom of God coming forth on earth.
All mankind that are not of the Spirit of Christ are of the spirit of anti-Christ. Those who are not of Christ are in this day inflamed with massive fear that becomes violent hatred and are totally driven to stop the coming forth of the “Israel of God” and the “New Jerusalem” of the Kingdom of God on earth.
The people who seek to be neutral are being pressed by the divided world to become on one side of the conflict or the other. Past attempts at neutral secularism are failing and becoming battlegrounds for godly verses ungodly, that which is of Christ and that which is of anti-Christ.
The Anti-Christ Kingdom
The “New World Order” is a design of the anti-Christ people to replace the Kingdom of God rule of love, righteousness, peace, and joy with another godless humanistic kingdom under the spirit of anti-Christ.
Much of the warring opposition to the New World Order (NWO) is from the order of Esau, a diversion from the true linage of Abraham but not by the Spirit of Yeshua Messiah, Christ Jesus. The Esau like agenda is fighting the NWO to protect its enlarged appetites of self-gratification. Thus to some degree joining with the followers of Christ/Yeshua against a common enemy.
Much of the linage of Ishmael is being used to wage violent war and even more powerful subversive war for the minds of the people to alter their psyche to war against Yeshua, Christ Jesus, and His rule on earth in and through His people.
Understanding the spiritual roots of the world’s turbulence and the plan of God for the world allows us to hear the direction of God to fulfill our part in the transformation of this world to the Kingdom of God.
This is a time beyond all time for the harvest of the world. Multitudes are soon in desperate need of connection to the one true God by coming with their whole hearts to Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
Preparation for Victory
Two words “REAL” and “RELATIONSHIP” Turn to God with your whole heart.
“…and you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul (life), and with all your mind (thought, understanding), and with all your strength,” Mark 12:30.
Get completely real with God and forget religious fantasies. Get to know God intimately through the Holy Spirit.
Seek with all that is in you to know God in the Spirit. Know that He loves and desires personal communion with you even more than you do. Get into the Bible and ask Holy Spirit to reveal truth to you. Seek out Kingdom teachers and watch videos of real words and works of God.
God is moving miraculously and powerfully preparing a people to rule and reign on earth.
Hear and follow the unction of Spirit of God; pray until it is real in your heart. Do not faint or fall away when desperate times come upon you.
Seek Him and the things of heaven even more. No matter what the circumstances are trust Him and find that place of His JOY within you at all times.
The joy of the LORD is your strength. Allow God to purify your heart and life. Love, love, love Him. Share love and impart joy to the people next to you or that you encounter in your daily walk.
Allow the boldness of Spirit God to flow from you to proclaim the love and truth of Jesus at all times.
The resources and LOVE of God are endless and are fully available to those who love Him. You are always victorious in Yeshua, Christ Jesus. Eventually all the world will be purified and will bow before the LORD.
Praise God and give Him glory and be thankful at all times. Bask in His love forever more.
Be made whole in His love,
