Who said that there was a difference between the Jew and the Church?
Who was the bright boy who first taught that God said the two had to be kept apart and separate?
I was sitting in a Baptist College studying theology to become a preacher of the gospel [many years ago], when a Bible instructor stood up in a classroom and said: “You cannot mix the Church with Israel.”
He went on to say to us all, the reason is that God made them separate and they are not to be mixed.
He repeatedly said to us: “Don’t make the mistake of mixing them together, keep them separate, or you will be led into error.”
He explained the Word to the Jews was not to the Church, and the Word to the Church was not to the Jews.
You must know that this young man [back then] believed every word he said that day.
Well, in 1999, after many years of believing that way, I ran head on into The LORD in my desert place here in New Mexico.
I was a very disillusioned and washed out preacher. I had quit the ministry, and was digging alabaster on the backside of the desert.
Suddenly The LORD spoke to me in that desert place. I was literally stricken down on the floor and I couldn’t breathe because I could not take a breath.
The LORD begin to talk with me that day and He first forgave me of all my backsliding and sins. Then for five days He spoke to me vocally and in The Spirit and He told me many things.
One of the things He told me was this: “You have been grafted into the roots of the good olive tree, and you are part with Israel.”
He said, “You are in the family, and are included.”
Then The LORD took me to Romans 11 and had me read how the Gentiles had been grafted into the places where the limbs of the Jews had been broken off.
He gave me this passage in particular:
“17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; 18 boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
19 Thou wilt say then, the branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.
20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: 21 for if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee,” Romans 11:17-21.
The LORD explained in these verses how the good olive tree [Israel] is where He has grafted into the Gentiles.
The fact is, the Jewish limbs had been broken off and into their place was grafted the Gentile Church! But the Jewish limbs will be again grated back in!
That day in the desert The LORD told me, “You are in Israel and what happens to them happens to you!”
Some time later He taught me out of verses in Ephesians 2, which says much more for us to understand about what God has done for the Gentile Church [and Israel].
Read it here:
“11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past gentiles in the flesh, who are called uncircumcision by that which is called the circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12 that at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13 but now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
14 for he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15 having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16 and that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 17 and came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
18 For through him we both have access by one spirit unto the father.
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21 in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in The LORD: 22 in whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the spirit,” Ephesians 2:11-22.
The LORD said, the two are now… One body. Not two!
So don’t let anyone tell you that the Jews are one group and then the Church are one group, and you cannot mix them! Fact is God has broken down the wall that divided them and made one new man.
Today, there are many things confused by religious men, who try to say the two are separate. For one thing, the teaching of end time things is confused greatly, by men, who try to say, oh’ did not you know that only the Jews are going to be in the tribulation?
Is that right? No. Not just the Jews will be tested but the whole body, the one man will be tested.
This is a very serious study. Please do not pass it by quickly…
…. but consider what The LORD did teach here.
Study what God himself has done when he joined the two and made one new man.
Please note this:
I did not mean to say that, now that we are saved and grafted in, that we are to go back to the Old Covenant and practice all that the Jews did under the law! No….. but instead, The LORD is bringing the Jews forward into the New Covenant, where we all have been redeemed and washed in the Blood of the New Covenant.
We can not go back to the Law, for Jesus Christ has come and fulfilled it for us all, both Jew and gentile and Jesus has washed us all in this New Covenant blood!
